SOME day my son, Hannibal, will be a great leader, for of all my soldiers he best knows how to 
obey." Such were the words of Hamilcar, father of the famous Carthaginian, and they express a 
truth that was as well-known then as it is today. To lead, one must first learn to follow, and force- 
ful leadership is a quality that is vitally essential to the very existence of a navy. 

To the officers of the Executive Department we are deeply indebted. From them we have absorbed 
our first lessons in leadership, discipline, and organization, lessons not learned from text and theory but 
rather from example and experience. While some of these experiences may have been bitter ones at the 
moment, all have been highly valuable and have served to carry us further toward our common goal. 
Their influence over us has been a powerful one, they have exacted from us a rigid standard of discipline, 
but a just one. We are better men as a result of it. 

We carry with us into the Service, not only the technical rudiments of our profession, but also a 
keener insight into men and a realization of our duty to accomplish the work at hand, whether it be an 
inspection or a crisis in our Country's life.

1 >? 







JUNE Week, with its color 
and ceremony, brings to a 
close a rigorous and event- 
ful chapter of our lives. Four 
golden years we have spent in 
acquiring habits and traits of 
character which should stand us 
in good stead no matter what 
path in life we may pursue. 

R. A. Gallagher 

R. W. Thompson 





N retrospect, these four years 
which brought so many trials, 
seem now only too fleeting. As 
the setting sun passes beyond the 
horizon to encounter new worlds , 
so do we take our departure from 
this institution with a feeling of 
both expectancy and regret.

TWO years behind us — one 
fraught with the tribula- 
tions of plebehood, though 
brightened by the anticipation 
of attaining that lone "diag" 
which would bring the right to 
"drag" and "carry on;" the 
other given over to enjoying the 
privileges which it gave while 
we strove yet harder to secure a 
companion to that first stripe. 

W. C. Clark 





ories of the thrills of two 
Army games, those leaves 
at home, and Youngster Cruise 
will always live in our minds. 
Though we have regrettably lost 
a few by the wayside, we are 
still a class that will leave the 
mark of THIRTY-FIVE on the 
Academy and on the Service.

THE Class of Nineteen Thirty-six has come to assume its 
place in the Regiment of Midshipmen. We came here from 
different environments, with varying conceptions of the 
stern life which we hoped to adopt, but with a unifying ambi- 
tion — to carry on the traditions handed down by men of 
the sea. 

We forsook life as we had known it and entered into a 
kaleidoscopic whirl of cracking rifles, bewildering squad move- 
ments, and the bite of the long cutter oar. 




THEN the rigorous physical routine of Plebe Summer was 
superseded by the trials of Academic Year. If our ideal- 
istic conception of this Naval Academy was shaken by 
Plebe Summer, it was shattered by the succeeding eight 

Yet we feel that we are better men for those long months. 
We realize something of what the future holds for us; we have 
equipped ourselves to carry on toward the betterment of the 
Academy and the Service.

SINCE man first ventured forth upon the sea, he has been concerned with the safety of his vessel 
and the skill with which he might handle it. Down through the ages, through the periods of 
oar, sail, and steam, seafaring men have combated the mighty force and power of the sea. Today 
we are the heirs to the very practical and valuable knowledge they have handed down to us. To be sure 
the art of seamanship cannot be learned on land; but here at the Academy we have been taught many 
of its facts and rudiments, thus giving a solid foundation upon which to build during our future 
years afloat. 

Aviation now exists in the Navy as a powerful arm of the Fleet, vitally essential to its success in 
battle. It is therefore necessary that we have a sound knowledge of flight tactics and the definite rela- 
tionship necessary between our forces afloat and in the air. Neither can exist alone; success will come 
only through proper coordination of the two. 

Studies in naval and international law have been included in order that we may be better fitted to 
handle problems of personnel and of international situations as they affect the Navy. 

The Navy stands today as a highly developed organization of men and ships to maintain the honor 
and integrity of these United States in the sun of world affairs.

THE best protection against the enemy's fire is a well-directed fire from our own guns." To this 
end the Ordnance Department has endeavored to initiate us into the complexities of modern 
naval gunnery, in such a way as to enable every graduate to efficiently perform the duties of a 
gunnery officer. Though the ships be heavily armed, and powerful, their offensive and defensive quali- 
ties are nil if the control of rapid and effective fire is lacking. 

Theoretical knowledge coupled with practical experience gained on the practise cruises and service 
after graduation is the method of teaching the young Naval Officer this important phase of warfare. 
During the course of First Class Year, there are many P-works involving the use of range and ballistic 
tables, and six-place logs for determining ranges, deflections, and the various angles for the disposition 
of the guns for theoretical "hits." Each morning of the cruises is spent in rehearsing fire control prob- 
lems and demonstrating the practical application of the principles of gunnery. This regular drill every 
morning, in which confidence and proficiency are instigated, culminates in a day of short range battle 
practise toward the end of the cruise. 

Regardless of what changes may be made in men-o'-war, strategy, or that which the advent of new 
weapons may bring, gunnery will always determine the superiority of one fleet over another. The task 
of the Ordnance Department then is to make of the graduates, men well versed in all phases of modern 
gunnery with its most effective use.

TO THE unitiated, navigation appears as some mysterious subject, dealing in declinations and right 
ascensions, by means of which one, "finds his way about" over trackless waters. That was probably 
the impression most of us had when we were about to begin its study Second Class Year. But as 
the months went on and we became more familiar with the terms and methods used, much of this former 
impression disappeared and we saw in navigation a fascinating and practical science. 

At the Academy we have spent many an hour wrestling with P-works and poring over what 
seemed to be pages and pages of endless computations. But that time has been well spent, for it has 
given us a foundation upon which we may build to make of ourselves finished navigators. It was 
probably not until First Class Cruise, when we became practical navigators for the first time, that our 
interest was fully aroused. We came to feel the responsibility of a navigator, that of bringing a ship 
safely to its destination. We were brought to realize the necessity of accurately determining the ship's 
position at sea, its fix. 

To a navigator a fix is of prime importance. Daily fixes must be obtained and reported, and upon 
them rests the safety of the ship. But there are times when the fate of a fleet, of a country, may depend 
on their accuracy.

DURING four long years we have plodded our weary way to Isherwood Hall where the steam 
I savants reign supreme. There we have met with varying degrees of success in our efforts to become 
familiar with the multitudinous problems of naval engineering. The first months saw us grap- 
pling with cones, spheres, and helicoidal surfaces. Then came "assembly from details" and vice versa, 
after which we discarded our drawing boards to scratch our heads over epicylic trains, et cetera. Thermo 
was next with its B.T.U's and heat entropys. Next, we "subscribed" to the "Book of the Month Club" 
and came to realize the full meaning of those immortal words, "sketch and describe." First Class Year 
took us into naval architecture, internal combustion engines, and that vest pocket edition of M.E.I. 

Through it all, however, whether we boned, laughed, swore, or showed occasional tendencies to 
ride on velvet, there are few of us who have not come seriously to realize the vast importance of engi- 
neering in the Navy today. Every officer, at some time or other, is given engineering duty. He must 
know thoroughly the entire plant of his ship; the failure of a single auxiliary may force a ship out of the 
battle line at a crucial point. Guns are of little use unless the ship can be kept in position. 

Aeronautics plays a vital role. Faulty design or engine failure of a plane in flight means disaster. 

We are far from being finished engineers; but let us build on the frame work of knowledge we now 
have with that as our goal.

THERE are few midshipmen into whom the word, "math," fails to strike a stern feeling of respect 
and awe. Over a period of two and one-half years we marched grimly to do daily battle with 
Tecumseh's favorite minion. Armed with slide rules, handbooks, and log tables, we succeeded in 
staving off the barrage of dx's, integrals, and derivations until that day in the middle of Second Class 
Year when we entombed what we thought to be a monster. 

But we were not long in being brought to realize that mathematics was to play a very definite part 
in our careers as naval officers. It would be almost impossible even to visualize the modern navy without 
mathematics. Gunnery, construction, engineering, aeronautics are but a few of the subjects in which 
this spectre of our midshipmen days plays so prominent a part. 

Aside from its great practical value, the study of mathematics serves a cultural purpose as well. 
It teaches one to reason clearly and concisely to reach logical conclusions. While an exacting master, 
it gives in return to its disciples a feeling of mental confidence and independence — the power to 
think for one's self.

FROM the olden days of sailing vessels and point blank range, the Navy stands today as a triumph 
of engineering and scientific skill. A single hand on a throttle and the mighty Lexington sweeps 
through the seas at thirty-five knots, laden with her brood of planes ready to take off from her 
decks at a moment's notice. An amazing achievement in electrical power, this behemoth of the seas 
in an emergency supplied the city of Tacoma with its electricity over a period of months. 

This is but one phase of the Navy's use of electricity. It plays a vastly important part aboard every 
ship in the Fleet. It is but one of the sciences upon which the Navy depends today. Radio, physics, 
chemistry must ever be employed for aid and development. 

For the most part this work has been carried forward by the Navy itself. To maintain itself at full 
fighting efficiency, the Navy has become a leader in many fields of research and experiment. 

There are those of us who may have had occasional nightmares with "skinny" or "juice " in the 
leading roles. Then there are others who may have thought at times that some of our work has been a 
far cry from that we are to meet in the Fleet. The purpose of it all has been to train our minds along 
scientific lines, to give us at least a fundamental conception of these subjects in order that by actual 
practice, thought, and research in the future we may be capable not only of carrying on the work of our 
predecessors, but to carry it forward to new heights of service and achievement.

DURING our four years at the Academy, it has been necessary that the greater part of our work 
I be almost entirely along technical and professional lines. While it is essential that a naval officer 
be thoroughly versed in such subjects, it is also required that he be able to express himself clearly 
and forcibly in writing as well as in speech. Then, too, a knowledge of more cultural subjects plays an 
important part in the life of those who would think broadly and tolerantly. 

While we have referred on countless occasions to the "Bull Department," the latter has done more 
than merely make us proficient in the gregarious art of "echando el torro." We have had the oppor- 
tunity to develop a keen appreciation of better literature. Thoughtful and selective reading brings with 
it a certain deep satisfaction that cannot fail to enrich any man's life. 

Courses in history have given us a full realization of seapower — its effect and influence upon world 
affairs. National and economic problems have been presented to us, not only, that we may understand 
and consider them, but also to the end that the Navy has played no small part in the solution of 
many of them. 

Our work lies not in the field of politics; but a sound knowledge of national and world problems, 
past, present, and future will serve to carry the Navy to greater heights of service to the nation in 
peace as well as in war.

"... an officer of the Navy . . . should not only be able to express himself clearly in his own language 
and pen, but he should also be versed in French and Spanish." Thus wrote John Paul Jones to the Con- 
tinental Congress in 1775. Today, the Department of Modern Languages has as its aim not only the 
production of officers who can converse ably on daily and professional subjects in French and Spanish, 
but in German and Italian as well. 

The summer cruises to Europe have as one of their purposes the further development of the pro- 
ficiency of midshipmen in the use of foreign tongues. The fact that the course of instruction in this 
department extends over a period of three years is mute evidence of its relative importance in the produc- 
tion of graduate officers. From our own standpoint, there are few greater pleasures to be derived than 
to be able to accurately convey our thoughts to the people of the lands we visit, in their own tongue. 
We extend our gratitude to the members of this department, whose energy and patience have enabled 
us to lay a proper foundation for this phase of an officer's work.

T IS necessary that every naval officer be fully aware at all times of the problems of sanitation and 
hygiene that are ever existent in the Service. There is no place in the world, probably, where men 
must live in closer quarters than aboard a submarine, a battleship — in fact, any one of our ships of 
the line. At the same time it may be rightly said that there are no places where men function more 
efficiently. Such accomplishments would be impossible were not a ship kept scrupulously clean and 
were not the men themselves taught the value and necessity of personal cleanliness as well as that of the 
ship. Cleanliness and efficiency go hand in hand. They help very materially to develop in officer and 
enlisted man alike a deep sense of pride in their ship and work. 

The matter of health and physical fitness of personnel is one that can never be overlooked or 
neglected. In the ordinary course of events men are exposed to diseases and ailments of all kinds, some 
being of a more loathsome and serious nature than others, but all tending to impair the work and well 
being of individual and ship alike. It is obvious that a high degree of personal hygiene be forever 
stressed and adhered to. 

It is readily apparent that such responsibilities should not be left to the medical officers alone. 
Every officer must be familiar with the principles of hygiene and sanitation; not only for his own benefit 
but for those who serve under him as well.

THAT part of the ' 'Mission" of the Naval Academy that considers that, ' "healthy minds in healthy 
bodies are necessities for the fulfillment of the individual missions of the graduates" is performed 
by the Department of Physical Training. From the early days of Plebe Summer on through the 
four years to graduation, we have come under the supervision of this department at regular periods. 
During these times, we have been taught the rudiments and some of the finer points of boxing, wrest- 
ling, swimming, and fencing by selected instructors. 

Aside from this system of instructive athletic drills, the Department is responsible for one of the 
most vital parts in the life of the Regiment, the maintenance of eighteen Varsity and Plebe sports. 
Every midshipman is proud of the splendid records of undefeated teams and championships won over 
a period of many years by Navy men. That spirit as aided and developed by competitive athletics is one 
vitally essential in the Fleet today. Such names as Webb, Mang, Schutz, Ortland, and Foster are pass 
words among the officers in the Fleet who have had the benefits of their untiring efforts, helping to 
produce the kind of men and teams to which the Naval Academy is pledged.

"Dave" "Marty" "Massa Dave" 

CHICAGO lost a man of no mean ability when 
Dave decided to leave that city of industry 
and cross the threshold of a career in the Navy, 
where bigger guns are used on a smaller scale. 
He was not long in being recognized, for while 
he was still getting located, he was made com- 
mander of his Plebe Company. He made his first 
bid for prominence when he went down to 
smoke a cigar in the company office. 

Much of his sporting interest was with the 
boxing team of which he was manager, and in 
his spare moments he packed a lively punch of 
his own. In the spring we found him on the 
tennis courts or in the pistol gallery where he 
drew a deadly bead on the forty-five. Seldom did 
he miss his daily workout in the gym or swim- 
ming pool. 

He has strong convictions on certain subjects, 
and occasionally expounded to us various phases 
of his philosophy or life. He has been a sterling, 
dependable, and valuable friend. A spirit of 
adventure, a craving for knowledge, and a deep 
loyalty to the Service should make his career an 
interesting one. We shall always be glad to greet 
him as a shipmate. "Sit down, Martineau, and 
have a cigar."

"Pete" "Browny" 

THOSE D.O's ought to apply a general pru- 
dential rule to the regbook." Pete Brown, 
a man whose natural, good-natured disposition 
and droll remarks are a source of joy to all 
those who know him possesses a lot of common 
sense, a subtle sense of humor and that rare 
quality of "being himself" at all times. He has 
made many lasting friends at the Academy. 

Pete has waged some bitter duels with the 
Academic Departments; they have gained ground 
on him at various times, but he has always 
managed to stem the attack by coming through 
with a 1.5 whenever he needed it. It is character- 
istic of him to take nothing for granted. Every 
fact must have a supporting reason; that is the 
course he follows while boning, when he finds 
the time, or in arguments, on which he dotes. 

A fast left hook and a hard right have made 
him a respected opponent among Spike's pro- 
teges. He takes great delight in blasting the 
center out of rifle targets, and the spring after- 
noons found him at the range. The feel of a helm 
appeals to him and he has spent many an hour 
skimming over the bay in a half-rater. 

Pete's ability to think for himself, combined 
with sincerity of purpose and certain fixed ideals 
mark him as a man who will accomplish things 
worth while in life.

San Raphael, California 
"Killer" "Babe" "Bill" 

BABE is a product of that far away land of 
sunshine, California, where men are men or 
sailors — a true native son. He might have been a 
little fellow once, when they used to tie him 
down to put shoes on him, but we've never 
known him except as he is — that's sufficient. 
Willie's a big boy now with the terrible name of 
"Killer," big in all respects — feet, hands, but 
biggest of all, his heart. Favors asked, and often 
unasked, never go unheeded. Being anything but 
good-natured just isn't in Babe's line except, 
perhaps, before a big wrestling meet or football 
game when he attempts to acquire that mean 
attitude — but fails. 

As to Bill's activities — academically, athleti- 
cally, socially, and otherwise — it's only neces- 
sary to say that he's never failed in anything, 
and there's no indication, at present, that he 
ever will. The wonder is that he does it all with- 
out effort — just got started on the right course 
and can't stop. 

Ambition in Willie's direction is ultra conser- 
vative — so he says — a little cottage back in the 
Golden State and all that goes with it. We have 
our doubts about that, though, and figure Babe 
will always be right in there where the battle 
is the toughest. It's faith displayed that gives a 
return of faith; so we are all in to the last that 
Bill will never hand over his sword. All we've 
been trying to say is that Willie is a winner!

ViNELANDS, Florida 
"Dick" "Kib" "Sonny-Boy" 

FROM that balmy land of palms, beaches, and 
sunshine came our Dick, bringing with him 
a radiant smile and a disposition saturated with 
the warm comforting rays of the Florida sun. 
Beneath his happy, carefree nature is a character 
generously supplied with seriousness and ambi- 
tion. His bright outlook on life, coupled with 
his very definite ideas on what he wants in this 
world, have set an example well worth emulation . 

Always level-headed and a clear thinker, Kib 
has been a great source of help to many of his 
bewildered and less practical classmates. Need- 
less to say, his friends may be found in all classes, 
all battalions. The underclasses, especially the 
fourth, know him as one always willing to boost 
them out of their troubles, however small they 
may be. 

Every fall found Dick barking out signals to 
his husky football colleagues; and hearing him 
sing strains of "Stars and Stripes Forever" as he 
recklessly rounded the end, brightened many a 
weary football practice. 

A staunch and faithful friend, Kib's admirers 
are as plentiful as the oranges grown in his fair 
state. Blessed by nature with an agreeable and 
affable nature, along with an abundance of good 
humor, hereadily adapts himself to all situations. 
That success will attend Kib in whatever he 
chooses to undertake, is undeniable.

THE portrait printed above is the facial like- 
ness of Dale Mayberry of Wichita, Kansas. 
Now Wichita is far famed because it is not far 
from the Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary, but 
you are assured that the above mentioned has 
nothing to do with the subject. 

His physiognomy is the only geographically 
perfect map-of-Kansas in existence. "Why, 
Kansas produced more wheat, oil, gas, eggs, and 
sunshine than any three states in the Union last 

A natural born politician, he had little trouble 
getting himself into one of the easier jobs with 
the Business Gang. He's a perfect roommate, 
always disagreeing with anything, either for 
the sake of argument, or just to be ornery. His 
one great fault is a constant desire and a phe- 
nomenal ability to sleep any time, any place, 
and in any position. His only academic worry is 
the language of the Dons and Senors which he 
strives mightily to conquer. Aside from that, 
he has the " ac " department eating out of his hand . 

There have been spicy rumors about his 
friends, the ladies, but we've never been able to 
prove anything. He receives numerous letters in 
feminine handwriting; but that's only circum- 
stantial evidence. Wherever he goes, we'll be 
pulling for him.

" Strawm" 

DO YOU know Who-is-it Keller? Do you 
Who-is-it, the snakiest man in the Regi- 
ment? He busted his galluses getting here and 
when he landed with a splash in the middle of a 
happy Plebe Summer, things began to happen. 
Plebe Year he played assistant substitute basket- 
ball, and only gave up his seat on the bench when 
he suffered injuries. 

He loves to swim, too. Don't you, Strawm? 
Takes to the water like a duck. Did you ever 
see a duck dive? When he goes in for something, 
he puts trimmings on it. He's an expert pis- 
toleer, too. 

His "affaires d'amour" were whittled down 
to a solitary passion early in his academic career, 
and if he doesn't get a letter a day, he starts to 
smoulder. If he doesn't "drag" every week-end, 
it's because he's on watch. 

Though academics have oft sought to slay 
him, this son of the rolling prairies has managed 
to loop a few of his own to keep himself on the 
scoreboard. He specializes in making horrible 
faces when he's pleased and likes all kinds of 
"ho-de-ho" songs. He smokes a fumigatin' pipe 
and has his own ideas about world peace. 

All around, he's a swell guy and a stalwart 
friend .

"Frank" "Lodi" 

AFTER setting a record by spending six years 
jCjL in high school, Frank decided that a life 
on the bounding main would be preferable to 
living in the frozen wilds of Washington. A 
year of prepping at San Diego enabled him to 
become one of Uncle Sam's "pampered pets." 

To judge from the size of his neck, one might 
think him a wrestler, but each winter found him 
swapping punches over in the gym. Other sports 
interested him only as a pastime. The femmes 
worry him not, except for one. 

Frank's choice hobby is figuring out how to 
avoid doing work. He professes to be humorous, 
but no one agrees with him, still, his "ne plus 
ultra" jokes are usually worth hearing. He's 
not especially non-reg, but his black N and two 
stars are mute testimony of his disagreement 
with convention and his defeat at the hands of 
the Executive Department. Academics cause him 
no worry, in fact, he has almost convinced us 
that a man can extract thermoevenfrom aCosmo. 

Whether Frank decides to become an admiral 
or to seek success on the outside, we know he 
will accomplish what he sets out to do. And 
when we tell our grandchildren about our careers 
as midshipmen, we will certainly include our 
association with Frank as one of our happiest

Charleston, West Virginia 
"Von" "Glaivm" 

HERE'S the announcement that you have 
been waiting for. The effigy of the little 
fellow that you see above is the Navy's pride 
and joy. Hailing from a place just "down the 
holler," called Charleston, West Virginia, he is 
willing to bet at any odds, that his dear old 
state produces more of anything than any other 
place does. How about it Von, can you yodel? 

Our little pal attended Bobbie's War College 
to acquire enough knowledge of the three R's 
to struggle through his entrance exams. His 
first lesson in seamanship was received Plebe 
Summer with a cruise on the Navy's crack liner, 
the "Reina Mercedes," which was undoubtedly 
the turning point in the life of this salty old 
sea dog. Always putting out enough ergs for 
the old Z.5, he has had little difficulty in acquir- 
ing a class number. He likes to "shoot the 
breeze" about anything, rest, and eat. 

A word for the ladies — he likes to stay in his 
room during a hop, go to the movies, and he's a 
tough hombre, my dears — of the "red mike" 
variety. The winner will have to be a "doggone' ' 
good cook. 

To everybody — a swell pal.

Battle Creek, Michigan 

' 'Jimmy " " Sane ho 

JIMMY gave up the liberal arts and fraternity- 
house life at Michigan State to join the Navy, 
and to give the breakfast-food makers of Battle 
Creek something of which to boast. 

Jimmy's greatest ambition is to go places and 
see things. The restless, unsettled side of the 
Navy life appeals to him and he wants to travel 
to ail four corners of this old world before he 
settles down. In all probability, he will doit, too. 

Jimmy's favorite indoor sport is reading, and 
second to that, caulking, especially the latter 
on a rainy Sunday afternoon. 

He attempts to play the role of a "red mike," 
but he has slight success in resisting the appeal 
of feminine charms. Incidentally, his luck on 
blind drags has been phenomenal, although he 
may have been too gullible at times. 

Jimmy was a generous contributor to the Log 
throughout Plebe Year; but the worries of 
Youngster calculus temporarily led him away 
from the literary field. As company representa- 
tive, his work on the Lucky Bag has been more 
than worthy of note. 

Jimmy has an unfailing love for the sea. Those 
who have known him will say, "A true friend — 
he will make a fine officer."

"Ken" "Bare" 

FOUR short years ago our fair-haired hero 
shook the sawdust of the Furniture City out 
of his hair and started seaward. Being a gentle- 
man was easy for Ken, but the academic battle 
which precedes the awarding of the coveted title 
"officer' ' called for more efl^ort. While ' 'Old Man 
Ac" exacted his tribute of time and toil. Ken 
never missed a leave or became seriously "unsat. ' ' 

In his desire to reach the top in athletics he 
became a devotee of the gentle sport of rope- 
climbing. His record in this speaks for itself. 
Ken is also a soccer fan and a tennis player of no 
mean ability. 

His spare time was fully taken up by his many 
outside activities. When he was not working 
with the Christmas Card Committee or the Pep 
Committee he could usually be found reading 
books or articles on Russia. His sacred ambition 
is — shhhh — to grow a lot of whiskers and go to 
Russia himself to study the situation first hand. 

His loves are beyond the scope of this text. 
There was one little girl in Washington though 
— but we won't tell. 

As a faithful and long-suff'ering roommate. 
Ken is of the best and we will venture to state 
that he will be a good officer.

BIG, bright, blue eyes with depth and char- 
acter look squarely at you without blinking 
as you meet Mickie. They size you up and he 
likes you or he doesn't. If the firm, well shaped 
mouth parts in a smile displaying ivory teeth, 
solid and gleaming, you can feel assured; he

built and carries himself extremely well. You 
notice the hair as we enter the room. It kinks

always brushed off before going to formation. 
He shined his shoes and put on a clean shirt. 
He loved to look immaculate. 

Mac tells us of his last leave while we have a

make you run five miles for your money than 
give it to you without a struggle.

"Hank" "Grik" 

HAILING from the big hand state with a 
smile spread o'er his beaming countenance, 
Hank breezed into the Academy to lend his 
graces to the service of Uncle Sam. Why he 
aspired to become a Tar became evident at once, 
he is a true disciple of Father Neptune. Plebe 
Summer found him on the Bay handling the half- 
raters with the skill of a salty skipper, and wish- 
ing his minute craft would suddenly merge into 
an old windjamming Tuscorora. 

Studies — aw fruit! If you wanted to know 
why the wheels go 'round in steam or what a 
red light over a white light over a red light 
meant in seamanship you could just ask Grik. 
He was a ready and willing helper, if you could 
find him when he was not up to his favorite 
diversion of caulking off. 

Although nor exactly a "snake," he cannot 
escape the charms of the fairer sex. Recollections 
reveal him escorting Miss Springfield for being 
"late arriving from hop." What are you going 
to do this week-end. Hank? His eyes twinkled 
as he came back with, "Ah, she's coming down 
from Washington." 

If you should chance to meet a gentleman of

blue eyes, and a winning smile, just remember, 
we call him Hank.

TO SING his praises — alas, we must write a

Diogenes. The hieh school class prophesied 
success for Don and they knew, too; for besides 
holding down many outside activities in those

Actions speak louder than words and it is 
hard to give any adequate word-picture of the 
abounding personal qualities of tact, fair play, 
character, and generosity which have endeared 
him to all who know him. 

His even, cool, and pleasant disposition have

Springfield, Illinois 


THREE years ago Bunny left Illinois "poli- 
tics" to make his mark at Annapolis. His 
activities have been many and varied during 
his years here. No midshipman has more ac- 
quaintances in the Academy, as he seldom meets 
one of the "Sixteen Hundred" whom he cannot 
call by name. 

Few men are more loyal to their home town 
than Bunny. It seems that many of our nation's 
notables have come from Springfield, but he 
must be right for Lincoln, Rosenwald, and 
Fleischli is a wonderful record. 

Bunny's athletic connections have been with 
football and crew. At football he was manager 
and at crew he was coxswain. But his chief claim 
to fame is that he spent three years on the sub 
squad, and made the grade the night before 
Christmas leave started. 

Of his forensic abilities we need say little, for 
all know that he is second to none in his ability 
to use the English language, a man whose voice 
perhaps will some day be an influence in the 
Halls of Congress. If such be the case, other con- 
gressmen will find it necessary to take public

Washington, District of Columbia 

"Dirk" "Dobbin" 

IN THE beginning Washington was created, 
and, with the remaining fragments the rest of 
the world was made — that is what Dirk's version 
of the story tells us. But, despite a youthful 
handicap of coming from the nation's capital, he 
has proven himself a true heir of the Navy. 

Athletically, Dobbin is a versatile chap. In 
the fall he tried a hand at football. In the winter 
he was a cageman. In the spring he dusted off 
his snow shoes and played lacrosse. In between 
times he tried to keep off the pap, and on Satur- 
day night, if he was not serving extra duty he 
loved to stretch his six foot two carcass upon 
the bed and listen to the radio. 

He has a weakness for the fairer sex, and the 
fairer they are the greater is his weakness. As 
yet, not one of them has captivated him — that is, 
not for more than a few weeks at a time. 

Dirk's intention is to make the Navy a better 
place, and, with the diligence and persistence 
that are his, he will surely succeed.

BUD, or Tiny, or any of various other nick-

With eyes set on the cruel, grey walls of the 
Hudson, our boy changed course towards the 
Annapolis haven. After several summers' expe- 
rience with the western surveyors, he passed the 
long days of Plebe Summer for us with tales of 
his past escapades. 

As a roommate, you just can't find better. He 
will argue and try at least to think he's right, 
but otherwise, what is his is yours, and he will 
drag the girl friend's friend. 

On the gridiron. Tiny has been a varsity tackle 
for three years, while his personality and spirit 
have radiated in both Navy and opposing teams. 
Wrestling and track have served as interim sports 
for the rest of the year.

Who is Asiatic? Who wants beer? 

Should you desire information never hesitate

His is the personality that wins friends; his is 
the "it" that wins femmes. 

His hobby is smoking pipe tobacco, and if 
that doesn't help advertise pipe tobacco, surely 
his unemployed activities help out the unem- 
ployment situation a great deal. He can do 
several things at a time, but is busy doing noth- 
ing most of the time. If you don't believe it,

cause, bringing into play the principles of our 
great Americans, and he knows them from A to Z 
as well as he does the heroes of his native land. 
Radio is his pet hobby — which explains why

MAC is a son of the West and when he dis- 
carded his chaps in favor of the uniform 
of blue and gold , he found that one of his biggest 
jobs was to develop a pair of sea-legs out of a 
pair of bow legs acquired by years of riding. 
The Navy was pretty tough handling at the 
outset; but Mac decided he would break her to 
ride, or know the reason why, and so he did, 
without ever pulling a strap of leather. 

With a disposition as gentle as the proverbial 
dove, coupled with an infectious smile and 
Scotch wit, he made friends of everyone. 

Best of all, he likes to do nothing, and he does 
that well. Any afternoon and ninety per cent 
of the study periods you might have found him, 
feet on desk, skag in hand, reading either The 
Saturday Evening Post, Cosmo, or some book. 
He wasted very little time studying, but was 
always well versed on any and all subjects. 
He has a good stock of stories and jokes, and 
they aren't all Scotch, either. 

Mac says that he contributes his success in 
life to his ability to toot readily the piccolo

He started boxing Plebe Year and has been

The academics kept him busy during the first

During Second Class Year, however, he found 
time to read his favorite books on philosophy 
and biography. The Cosmo and Saturday Even- 
ing Post he left alone, probably because he was 
never a radiator athlete. 

He is usually good natured, and has an Irish 
sense of humor; but on occasion the humor can 
be displaced by an Irish temper. His straight 
thinking and natural method of facing issues 
squarely have won him the respect of all who

FROM way out in the wilds of Nebraska, 
where there is land and plenty of it, came

sea way out in that part of these free and inde- 
pendent United States is a mystery of physics. 
Anyway he left the land of his birth and jour- 
neyed to his new home beside the water. 

Voodah has few, if any, vices or faults, and 
he is a swell guy to live with. Whatever he has 
is yours — if you can get it. On top of that qual- 
ity, add his customary and imperturbable good 
humor. It's very seldom you can find him climb- 
ing out of bed on the wrong side. Once in a 
while, it's true, he gets a little griped at life in 
general, but never an ugly temper. 

Someone is always curious to learn whether 
or not a man is savvy — not that it makes any 
difference. No, Bin is not particularly so — but 
that never causes him any loss of sleep. He could 
generally be reached in care of the higher (num- 
bered) sections. Now and then, he paid a visit 
to the anchor section just to get a sniff of the 
atmosphere down there. 

While no stars adorn his collar and no stripes 
circle his cuffs, Voodah is our idea of a "regu- 
lar feller."

BILL was born in Mattoon, Illinois, but he 
early moved to Ohio. After making his 
mark in the local schools, he decided that a life 
on the rolling deep was the one for him, and 
as the Naval Academy seemed to be the first 
stepping stone he set out to become a "pam- 
pered pet." 

Although of a scholarly turn of mind at the 
beginning of Plebe Year, Bill soon decided that 
lessons were incidentals in the life of a midship- 
man, and thereafter he devoted himself only to 
them during such moments of leisure as became 
available when no novels or magazines were to be 
had. Yet, with all his carefree ways, academics 
were never a source of danger to him, and a 
frown of worry was never to be seen on his face. 

As athletics put too many obstacles in the 
way of dragging, all the attraction which they 
might have held for him were far outweighed, 
and he developed into something of a "snake." 

Always good-natured, obliging, and thought- 
ful, he possesses the qualities which go to make

Timmie ' ' ' 'Jimmie " " Tim 

STRAIGHT from the good old frozen igloos 
of Alaska College came this Eskimo Timmie, 
bringing with him his cheery smile and his 
"Hi, Men!" Smallness of stature makes him a 
sandblower of the first water, but his ability is 
limitless. He's a great kidder, yet there's many a 
man of the more wooden species who owes it to 
him for piloting their ship over the rocks and 
shoals of "unsatness" by stopping whatever he's 
doing and giving them ail his time when they 
come around with "Hey, Timmie, how do you 
work this prob?" His favorite music is by Gene 
Austin and Jimmy Rogers; he's a "red mike" 
to us, but he's really remaining true to hisfemme. 
Quick, vivacious, spontaneous, he announces his 
presence bv a slap on the back, gives an attempt 
at tap dancing and sounds off with "Llegue en 
ele." No one has ever known him to lose his 
head. Fond of swimming, gym and coxswaining 
the crew, yet, after all that he must have a good 
workout, and a cold shower every morning re- 
gardless of the temperature. His favorite pastime 
is reading magazines and writing letters while 
the rest of us are boning away during study hours. 
An amateur radio operator, electrician and 
"savior" in general. Uncle Sam shouldn't have 
any hesitancy in giving this man a commission.

Los Angeles, California 

"Don" "Doctor" " Dead Reckoning" 

WHEN Don arrived from sunny California 
he brought most of the sunshine with him 
— and he scatters it wherever he goes. Don's all 
for California. Some day he's going back and 
give the old home state her sunny days again. 

Doctor played football before he joined the 
Navy. In the fall he showed us his ability play- 
ing class football. During the rest of the year, 
he spent most of his afternoons on the hand- 
ball courts. 

There's a little girl down North Carolina 
way of whom Don thinks a great deal. Every 
night he used to write page after page to the 
"only girl in the world." The morning mail 
never arrived that didn't bring him his reward 
from his O.A.O. 

Don doesn't care much about studying, but 
he managed to stand right up among the boys. 
The "juice" book might demand attention; 
but if there was a letter to be written or a good 
magazine to be read, Don forsook "velvet" for 
the "better things in life." Doctor is an ardent 
and an excellent card player. If a game of bridge 
is in progress, "Ely" Shaul will be there. 

Don has a wonderful disposition — smiling 
when the rest of us are griping — a real sport — 
a dandy roommate.

"Mac" "Boh" " Scott ie" 

FROM the mountainous region of Albuquerque 
Mac came to the Academy to join us. With 
him he brought the very essence of the West. 
His love of such pieces as ' 'The Dying Cowboy, ' ' 
"Waitin' for a Train," etc., are a manifestation 
of his westernness. He is a proficient accordion 
and harmonica player and entertains us royally. 
There are few men that are better liked than 
Scottie. His never ceasing cheerfulness, his ever 
ready smile or laugh, his level headedness, 
abundance of energy, and pleasing personality 
have been a magnet in drawing friends. He has 
one of these enviable, amiable dispositions that 
nothing can ruffle, takes his knocks as they come 
and is always looking for the best. His secret 
ambition is to be a great cartoonist. He is well 
on his way toward fame already as any D.O., 
prof, or reader of the Log can attest. When 
not busy drawing cartoons, Mac was over in 
the gym or pool. No morning was ever too chilly 
for him to take his cold shower. As a society 
hound he has few rivals. So far he has not suc- 
cumbed to any one girl, but we are waiting 
expectantly for the day to arrive.

Annapolis, Maryland 


HAILING from Crabtown and a Navy Junior, 
Morgan found that his only path led to the 
Naval Academy. Once ensconced behind the 
walls, he determined to remain. And remain he 
did in spite of the obstacles that the Academic 
Departments threw between him and his goal. 
His ability to "pull sat" at the last moment 
denotes in part his character. He is content to let 
things ride until the last hill is reached — there 
he throws in all his power, and goes over the 
top with rush. 

A great love of music has led Morgan to 
spend a good portion of his time listening to the 
"Vic." That, combined with choir work and 
drawing for the Log, was his chief form of 
recreation. Endowed with good looks, Morgan 
has been forced — not against his will — to become 
a "snake," and he finds that dragging and an 
intensive study of movie actresses are not too 

Not being able to enjoy anything to which 
he is not accustomed or familiar, Morgan ap- 
pears to be rather snobbish. But his sympathies 
are always with the underdog, and his room 
became a Plebe haven. There is a charm about 
him that attracts strangers and holds his friends 
in a bond which they do not care to break.

"Hal" "Chub" "Raffles" 

THE University of Minnesota lost a promising 
young man when Hal forsook the lake coun- 
try for the banks of the Severn. 

To acquire the necessary eccentricities of a 
midshipman, Hal attended Bobby Werntz's 
"war college." Then Hal became a Plebe and 
settled down to enjoy the pleasures of Plebe 
Summer. The Academic Year found him enjoying 
himself. While others grumbled, he merely 
laughed it off and his ready wit and amiable 
disposition carried him through all difficulties. 

Everyone has heard one of his many friends 
yell "Hey, Ruble," in hope of locating his 
whereabouts and joining in the fun. Where Hal 
is, there also is merriment and mirth. Hal can 
usually be located by listening for his laughter; 
it is not only inimitable but of exceeding magni- 
tude. It begins in a low, rolling chuckle and 
ends up in an infectious outburst in which all 
must join. 

During the long years on the Severn, Hal 
battled down upperclassmen, academics, and 
football. He accomplished his ends in an ener- 
getic manner and never allowed temporary set- 
backs to overcome his ambitions. He has a 
genuine love for the Service which will carry 
him to success.

"Bull" "Max" "Four-o" 

YOO HOO!! How many girls have stopped to 
look up to see who was paging them as they 
raced across the terrace of our beloved B.H.? 
And what to their surprise do they see but our 
own little, short man from the great open spaces 
of tall corn and sticky gumbo; Belmond, Iowa, 
to be exact. 

Four-o is one of our silent, savvy men. When 
the "ac" department is getting us all down, he 
just lights up his pipe and breaks out a magazine. 
Boning is bad for the health, so he says. But 
when the marks come up he is unsat with any- 
thing below a 3.5. Wotta man, wotta man! 

Max had many ambitions, among them being: 
sleep until noon; never study; choke the man 
who says "sweep out and dust every morning;" 
no taps; unlimited liberty every night. Good old 
Bull, what he wanted was a country club. 

In an athletic way, Bull really loves his wrest- 
ling. He's too shy to burst out into the public 
eye with it, but here is a tip: don't take him on 
unless you know your stuff. 

It took Max three years to win his black N; 
but now he has something to show for his disbe-

The Navy suits Max perfectly, and if he stays

BOB hails from New Rochelle, New York. 
His high entrance examination marks pre- 
saged the good academic record he has since 
made. His good qualities of steadiness, dependa- 
bility, and an air of quiet efficiency marked him 
for a successful four years from the day he entered. 
It took but a few days for his magnetic personal- 
ity and cheerful, carefree nature to begin win- 
ning for him the hosts of close friends that he 
now numbers. 

Mac has always had a flair for athletics, and 
his record in basketball, baseball and tennis 
speaks for itself. It shows a fine competitive 
spirit in addition to more than average physical 

Bob is a good judge of the better things. His 
remark, "Boy, what chow!" made after any- 
thing particularly good will long be remem- 
bered. For about three years our Bob paid little 
or no attention to yard engines. But, at last, 
realizing that quality should not live for itself 
alone, and encouraged by his spirit of congenial- 
ity, he gave in, and on rare occasions dragged 
some of the local femmes. But there is a certain 
one named Bunny back home to whom he always 
has and always will be true. His locker door 
holds a dozen or more pictures of the "Rabbit." 

It will be with great reluctance that we, his 
classmates, take leave of a true comrade. The 
best of luck to you. Bob.

Bloomer, Wisconsin 

"Bert" "Lulu" 

BERT, as he is known to us all, was sent to the 
Naval Academy from Wisconsin, and has 
proved himself a worthy representative of that 
state. He is well liked by his classmates, because 
of his pleasing personality and quiet unassuming 
manner. At times he seems to be a little shy and 
always keeps himself in the background. Bert 
exhibits all the traits that typify that hardy 
stock of people from the north woods. His love 
for swimming is supreme, having learned this 
pastime in the beautiful lakes near his home. 
The instinct of adventure is very marked in his 
nature. Immediately upon coming ashore in 
foreign ports, with camera in hand, he directs 
his course to the rural districts. On liberty days 
one may find him down at the shipbuilding 
docks or along the water front of Annapolis, 
always seeking some new item of interest. Sail- 
ing is one of Bert's pet hobbies and he finds no 
greater pleasure than running aground and then 
having the pleasure of shoving off again. The 
Academic Departments have never had a jinx 
on him; his easy and carefree attitude being the 
only obstacle that keps him from starring. The 
fairer sex have no special appeal to him, although 
he cannot be classed as a "red mike. " The ease 
with which Bert grasps the details of a new 
project make him well fitted for the naval pro- 
fession. His ambition is to retire young with a 
large tract of land and an appreciable income.

"Eric" "Swede" "Telly" 

THIS blond young man, with the brow of 
Ibsen, comes from the capital city. He wishes 
to be never separated from newspaper or movie. 
In his younger years he successfully set fire to his 
home, and at one time was in the hands of the 
police for throwing stones. Eastern High did its 
best, but here the Steam Department apprehended 
him and he went home till the next September. 
In that interim he shipped aboard a freighter for 
a two months' cruise to the British Isles, and 
did a little prepping in chipping paintwork and 
in the handling of single screw steamers. Since, 
Steam hasn't buffaloed him as he has found that 
it is all a game of "your move. " His talents seem 
to be readily recognized by "las muchachas," as 
he afl^ectionately terms them all, although some 
are "bribonitas tambien." 

A contact with this man whose manner is 
"take it easy" is always pleasant; those who 
have once met him do not fail to remember him. 
His personality is refreshing, especially in its 
genuineness. He does nothing that he does not 
choose to do but, fortunately, he has an admir- 
able disposition to do the right thing. Neither 
is he motivated by convention, a trait which 
ofttimes makes him appear fickle, yet, makes him 
all the more fascinating to know. He passes the

"Jimmy" "Choe" 

AFTER a varied schooling in Virginia, Con- 
necticut and Vermont, Jimmy finally made 
his entrance into naval circles, his scholastic 
ability lying in his cleverness and common sense. 
A little application of this highly developed 
common sense made him one of the "saviors" 
of the class. 

One is surprised by his capacity for work, 
and the tremendous energy with which he throws 
himself into everything he undertakes. He does 
everything from sketching to wrestling, with 
surprising vim and vigor. 

Choe knows a great deal of life, yet he is 
somewhat of a dreamer. He enjoys good poetry 
and philosophy. He's a little boy at heart, 
playful, cheerful, and humorous. His own phil- 
osophy is to enjoy life and never worry. This 
attitude makes him easy to get along with. 

Jimmy's character is complex. His carefree, 
adventurous nature conceals a vast store of ambi- 
tion and determination. His hobby is engineer- 
ing. He has quite a reputation as a ladies' man; 
but every day he writes to the "girl back home" 
and remains always loyal to her. 

In a word, we think Jimmy is the type of man 
who is bound to succeed in life.

Macon, Georgia 

"Major" " Synca" 

ANORTHERNIZED Southern product, this 
boy; educated in the South and experienced 
in the North. He came to the Naval Academy 
more mature than most, with all nonsense re- 
moved from his make-up by contact with this 
work-a-day world. The blond smoothness of 
Southern charm and the Yankee zeal for accom- 
plishment, somehow, combine most agreeably 
in him. 

The most surprising thing about our Major is 
his determination and thoroughness concerning 
the serious matters of life. His Southern leisure- 
liness of action did not go well with the Steam 
Department when he was a Plebe; but his deter- 
mination saw him through. 

His particular hobby is the study of human 
nature. He is fond of reading realistic literature, 
and nurses a secret ambition to write. 

Major is one of the nicest people in the world 
to live with — always considerate of his asso- 
ciates. If likely to be a little on the serious side 
at times, the freshness of his humor, when it 
does come, more than makes up for this. Sim- 
plicity and straightforwardness are the elements 
of his personality. 

About the fairer sex he is somewhat of a cynic, 
but he has the essence of a home-maker.

Springfield, Illinois 

"Jim" "Baron" "Earl" 

TO HEAR Jim tell it, the other forty-seven 
states are just suburbs of Illinois. Early in 
life he followed the footsteps of his city's idol 
and made a niche as a debater; but a sudden shift 
in his career moved him to forsake Lincoln for 
Neptune and the summer of 1919 found him 
struggling to keep in step with the man ahead 
of him. Our gain — Springfield's loss. 

His playground was the handball court, and 
few indeed are they who can claim to have had 
the honor of beating him at his own game. 
Though he isn't a star in any one sport, he can 
give most of us pointers in them all, especially 
wrestling, in which gentle art he has acquired a 
cauliflower ear, the pride and joy of his heart. 

While Jim claims to be a proverbial "red 
mike," he has always told some interesting 
tales about leave, and usually meets the mate 
at the door for the mail. Girls, a word to the wise 
— he is well worth the powder to shoot him. 

The knack of keeping "sat" has never been 
lost to him. In fact, the ability of being a per- 
petual first section man was in his grasp, al- 
though the less irksome appeal of a bridge game 
or a good book is usually answered first. He 
found the greatest trouble in making up new 
excuses each morning for not sweeping out 
the room. 

If the attributes of being carefree, generous, 
and honest to the core can send a man to success, 
Jim's practically an admiral now.

LIKE many good sons of Iowa, Bucky heard the

spent a few years in Frisco, where he honored 
Drew's War College with his ambitions. Then 
he came into our midst and learned the odd 
speech of a certain senator from his native heath. 

Though his athletic ability has been confined 
chiefly to the bridge table and dance floor, he is 
not a weakling by any means. His 175 pounds 
have seen service on the football field, in the 
shells, and in the boxing ring. 

Bucky soon shifted his affiliations from the 
fairer sex of the home town to the Eastern specie, 
and the mail bags bore mute testimony to his 
success. The worst days of his career were those 
rare ones on which his daily letter from "Naw- 
faok" failed to materialize. 

Academically, he has had not the slightest 
trouble in saving up enough "velvet " to tide 
him over that last month of every term when he 
was looking either ahead or back to leave. 

Always ready to argue or explain anything, 
whether you want to listen or not, Bucky usually 
contributed his share to every bull session. Give 
him the least chance to even smile and he will 
laugh loud and long. A man with his inherent 
good nature is mighty hard to down.

"Don" "Thug" 

THE nineteenth? That's fruit." When the 
Academic Board took math away from Don 
at the middle of Second Class Year, they took 
half the joy out of his life. From an humble start 
Plebe Year in which the Steam Department 
seemed to be doing its best to rid the Navy of a 
much needed member, Don staged a comeback 
the following year that showed the Academic 
Board they had been wrong from the start, and 
they never threatened him again. 

Don has always realized the power of a good 
sleep to invigorate and inspire one to the accom- 
plishment of bigger and better things. Youngster 
Cruise he was the unchallenged holder or the 
non-stop sleeping record. In port, of course, it 
was different. That may have been the reason 
that he used so much sleep between ports. 

Never much of a "snake," but time after time 
the patient victim of a blind date, Don has never 
been afraid to take one more chance. Being 
either extremely gullible, or just a real pal, Don 
would always listen without complaint to the 
one about, "She's not so good looking but she 
has loads of personality," and then go to the 
fray with a smile on his face. 

To his classmates and friends Don will always 
be remembered as the answer to "a friend in 
need." Good luck, Don.

Fortunately, Mim has always been able to

of common sense and a practical mind have kept 
him far from the bottom of the class. 

He isn't one of the best athletes in the class

football and track. 

His particular mystery is his unfailingdevotion 
to no less a master than Cupid. True to one girl, 
he spends his evenings writing letters and his 
money on telephone calls. 

His hobby during the cold months was perch- 
ing on the radiator and dreaming of "Sep" 
leave, and many a Friday night has been spent 
boning the Cosmo. 

As a roommate, he is ideal, never borrowing

Willie " "Bill" "Ratchet" 

HAD Willie not forsaken a promising career 
in Iowa to follow the sea he might now 
be a Rudy Vallee, a budding Will Rogers, or an 
"Alfalfa Bill." He has the most desirable faculty 
of finding enjoyment in any phase of life. Wheth- 
er he be cracking wise or relating a no-soap joke 
in the midst of a prize bull session, walking back 
from an evening in Baltimore, or allowing his 
ever present frivolity to assert itself during Glee 
Club practice, his pleasant disposition ever dis- 
plays itself as his great quality. Few escapades 
are complete without his presence. 

A 2.. 5 has been elusive for him much of the 
time, almost evading his grasp on one or two 
occasions, and thus his ambitions have been 
somewhat more curtailed than they might have 
been had Nature divided his abilities more even- 
ly. But with his openness of nature, spirit, and 
personal ambitions for future glory, he did not 
succumb to the academics and sub-squad. 

If athletic or academic glory have never been 
his, good fortune has been in the social world. 
Never is he without an O.A.O. to fire his soul 
anew and give him new stimulus toward reach- 
ing his goal. That familiar, "Hey, pal, she wrote 
today!" will be characteristic of him always, 
and the ship which has him in her wardroom 
will be a happier one.

OBSESSED with a strong desire to acquire 
further knowledge. Buck left the West and 
became one of us; but the novelty of Academy 
life did not stay with him long. His faculty of 
making friends was, from the beginning, a para- 
mount attribute, and his pleasant manners are 
much admired. 

He is one of those quiet fellows with a quiet- 
ness that dominates. He seldom speaks but when 
he does, there is attentive listening, and wit 
that really is wit, and still has originality, 
abounds. His sincerity and calmness endeared him 
to us. Sometimes complaints may escape him; but 
we find that he is merely making a joke. Gen- 
erosity has almost been a fault with him, as he 
would share his last collar button with a friend. 

Never would he be satisfied with ending his 
education here, and he will always be attacking 
greater problems. His patience and hobbies sug- 
gest his practical trend; he loves to take things 
apart to see what makes the wheels go round, so 
if he is near you you may feel sure that there 
won't be any cutting off of water because the 
condensers won't condense. 

He is not easily ruffled, takes things as they 
come, and is easy to get along with. Just because 
of this, do not think that you know him, for it

JOS came to Crabtown from the hilly streets of

Medical Department was unable to find any 
difference in the length of his legs. 

While not a big training table athlete, Jos is 
far from being a radiator hound, as almost any 
afternoon, until he learned to play chess, would 
find him in the gym at general exercise, a good 
swim, wrestling, or a hard fought game of hand- 
ball. Being a blond and a canoe fiend. Thug was 
suddenly introduced to the rigors of sunburn, via 
the Second Class Summer route to the hospital. 
In spite of that, his ardor for canoeing was not 
dimmed, and he went right back for more. 

As for academics, steam may have him worried 
but did he admit it? Not even to his innermost 
and most confidential self! He still found time to 
write his daily letter, or sometimes two, and 
time to read most of the novels in the Batt. Never 
a "red mike" and never a ' 'snake" is the enviable 
record of this one-woman man, who has loved 
deeply and sincerely since Plebe Christmas. 

Being a man who can assert himself when the 
occasion demands, and a true friend, we wish 
him the best of luck and the greatest of happiness 
with the wearer of that miniature.

COMING from the hot and arid sand-blown

metropolis of Pixley, Jack had a little trouble 
adapting himself to the crowded conditions of 
the East. He has succeeded admirably. 

His knowledge of electricity, gleaned from

old Ford, found new fields to conquer, and con- 
quer it did, until St. Vitus had become an indis- 
pensable member of the "Juice Gang" and quite

If there is anything that Jack would rather

with all his love of sleep, his work never suffers, 
and he can always be depended upon. He is a

level-headedness, and a store of general knowl- 
edge that stands him in good stead. When one

SIDNEY SCOTT WADE, commonly known as 
Scotty and Sid, was born and received his 
elementary education in Bloomington, Illinois. 
Right out of High School he ventured Westward 
and stopped at Portland, Oregon. The new en- 
vironment was pleasing; but life wasn't just as 
wild in the West as he had anticipated. Conse- 
quently, as a result of gazing absent-mindedly 
at a certain poster in his spare time, he found 
himself totin' a rifle as a private in the U. S. 
Marine Corps. Two months after joining the 
Marines he was aboard the U.S.S. Henderson 
bound for Guam, and on this trip Scotty got to 
thinking. His thoughts resolved themselves into 
ajprofitable conclusion. 

Sid makes up his mind to do something and 
then does it. He made up his mind to leave Guam 
and come to the Naval Academy. He worked 
hard to pass his entrance exams, just as he 
worked conscientiously at his studies later. As 
a result of his efforts he stood high in his prep 
class, and high in his class here. 

This strong characteristic, accompanied with 
a good sense of humor and clean habits, will 
insure for Sid a successful career.

tion, he can't be beat. 

With his likeable personality and sparkling 
sense of humor, the party can never go dead. He 
takes things as they come and likes 'em, too; 
a sort of happy-go-lucky fellow, but not ex- 
tremely so. Always willing to assist a fellow in 
times of stress or difficulty. Take for example 
such common occurences as; "Hy, Paul, how's to 
drag my O.A.O's girl friend to the hop this 
week end?" Paul says, "Sure, why not?" And 
again: "Say, Paul, you're not dragging to the 
hop this week-end; how's to swap guard duty 
with me? My drag is coming down and I'm on 
watch." Paul says, "Sure, go ahead and fix 
it up." All of which goes to prove that to a 
friend in need, Paul is a friend indeed.

Martinsville, Indiana 

"Joe" "Jimmie" 

JOE began his naval career with a serious desire 
to make the most of it and a dread of an 
extended leave in February. The first, he will 
always have, but the second passed when the 
marks for the first month were posted. Since 
then, staying "sat" has never worried him; 
but he has put in several hours keeping his class 
standing where it ought to be. 

Plebe Year, Joe started out to manage the track 
team; but not content just to watch others, he 
took up his own athletics. Swimming, tennis, 
and basketball have claimed much of his time 
and he has proved himself a worthy opponent 
in all of them. 

The activity for which Joe is known to us all, 
and envied by many, is his dragging. It was a 
gloomy day when there weren't epistles from at 
least one of the fair friends waiting for him 
after drill, and an off week-end when one of 
them wasn't down here with him. Some say it's 
that peculiar little smile of his that we've no- 
ticed so often; but whatever it is, we'll admit 
there is something that attracts them! 

Everything he does, whether it's studying, 
dragging, playing, or any of his other activities, 
Joe puts everything he has into it. Surrender is 
not in his make-up. It's about as hard to predict 
success for Joe as it is to predict showers in April !

"Chris" "Uncle G" 

EXCELSIOR'S world famous mineral waters 
gave him a healthy start. Since then, noth- 
ing has been able to stop him. That drive has 
carried him through the academics, sports, and 
innumerable good times. Along with these good 
times, Chris doesn't hate the women (as shown 
by Youngster Year), and he takes care of the 
song end in the choir. Whatever he does, he 
always comes out at the head of the list of 
those succeeding. 

Hard and constant work, with Lady Luck 
bringing up the rear has been the reason. Believe 
it or not, a dummy will work if you know how. 
Just ask him. 

Chris must be included among Thirty-Three's 
wealth of men who can handle a basketball so 
smoothly. Track and water polo drew his atten- 
tion Plebe Year, but only on the hardwood floor 
is he truly at home. 

He likes to think things out for himself. As a 
result, he has an enviable philosophy of life. 
Whenever he can help out, he is always ready 
and willing. That is only one of many reasons 
why so many people are proud to call him 
a friend. 

If Uncle leaves the Service upon graduation, 
the Navy will lose a fine officer.

THIS was the usual conversation between our 
hero, Mark, as a Plebe, and the grizzled up- 
per classman. Although his answers might have 
given the impression that he had just left the 
cotton patch, it is surprising to know that he is 
one of that large number of men who attended 
Marion Institute, thus being a man of somewhat 
wide and varied experience. 

As he was a habitual member of the higher 
sections in most subjects, he displayed little or 
no interest in the academic routine. One reading 
of any lesson sufficed and then he hied himself 
to some bit of fiction usually found in Cosmo, 
Colliers, Saturday Evening Post, or College 

Mark was an ideal roommate, always cheerful 
and never interrupting one's effort to study ex- 
cept by his snores. As a man he will go far, wher- 
ever he may be, and it appears as if the freedom 
of civilian life is too great an attraction for him 
to resist. If so, he'll achieve success by his deep 
thinking and application of practical ideas.

TIRED of taking pot shots at revenuers Ben 
came out of the hills of West Virginia in 
search of larger game. Enemy battleships seemed 
appropriate; so we found him one of the pam- 
pered pets of Uncle Sam. 

With his feet on the radiator and a good book 
in his hand Ben is content. Academics and the 

Eowers that be, and all such that bring grey 
airs to the heads of the rest of us, never seem 
to bother him. Perhaps he knows that they are 
harmless if left alone. 

The little girl back home holds the center of 
his thoughts; so that he hasn't much time for 
others of the fair sex. Not that he is a "red mike," 
for he attends all the hops and drags at times; but 
he can never develop much enthusiasm for these 
new afl^airs of heart. 

When he is serious, he will argue about any- 
thing under the sun; but he is so seldom serious 
that this cannot be called a characteristic. 
Always ready to engage in anything that might 
be amusing, Ben makes the ideal companion for 
any endeavour. A loyal friend and a good class- 
mate, we hold him deep in our hearts.

JOHN, being an Army junior, had vague ideas 
of going to West Point. After graduation from 
high school in Indianapolis, however, he abrupt- 
ly changed his mind and decided to cast his lot 
with the Navy; life at sea seemed to present more 
excitement than stolid Army mules. Plebe Sum- 
mer found John absorbing the Navy rapidly, and 
he kept out of the trouble that most of us found. 

To those of us who know him well, his unas- 
suming attitude and serious nature have won 
him our admiration. He is not a "snake" and 
always asserts that women in general hold no 
charm for him; but various scented missives 
from down South make us wonder at these 
declarations. John is never happier than when 
he is in the midst of a friendly argument — no 
matter what the subject be. 

Academics have had very little in the way of 
opposition to offer this seeker after scientific 
things. He has always stood well up in his class, 
and helped anyone who sought his aid. John 
engaged in several different sports; soccer in the 
fall, smallbore and basketball in the winter, and 
rifle in the spring found him out playing with 
the best of the boys. He has intentions of making 
good in the Navy, and we'll gamble that he does.

"Steve" "Bob" "Jerry" 

BORN in sunny California and reared in the 
Orient, Steve came to us through the Service, 
thereby learning first-hand the ways of the Navy. 
Widely read and travelled, he is possessed of a 
philosophy which defines happiness as its air. 
Ideals have meant much to him, and he has 
adhered to them these four years. 

Studies hold no terrors for him; his chief occu- 
pation during study hours is letter writing. 
Exam week usually found Steve boning the 
Cosmo and Red Book; but, needless to say, he 
is no stranger to the savvy sections. He is gifted 
with an easy flow of speech and tact, makes 
friends easily and retains them indefinitely. With 
a keen and appreciative sense of humor, impul- 
sive, sound judgment, and a willingness to ques- 
tion anything, Bob is eminently qualified to 
handle one of Uncle Sam's battle canoes. 

Steve's drags are a constant source of interest 
to him — each one something new — each one a 
puzzle to be solved in a definite way. His O. A.O. 
is subject to change without notice. There are 
indications, however, that having seen enough 
of the others, he will eventually turn to one 
alone. An officer and a gentleman, whose forte 
is rifle, whose pastime is swimming, and whose 
obsession is smallbore, we know he will attain 
success in his field.

St. Louis, Missouri 


WAY back in the Dark Ages (from 19x8 to 
you), Lou was informed by a fortune teller 
that the next four years or so would be a dark 
page in the financial history of his beloved coun- 
try. As he had been engaged in banking since 
his graduation from Central High in St. Louis, 
Lou decided that it was high time he entrusted 
his future to an occupation where he would be 
sure of three squares a day. Having a fondness for 
rowboats and salt water, it was only natural 
that he should choose the Navy. 

As a roommate and a friend, Lou could have 
been improved on but little. Oh, he could have 
made us much happier if he would have put 
some soap in the shower occasionally; and his 
sweatshirt on the hot radiator didn't exactly 
make the room smell like spring roses; but all- 
in-all he was darned easy to get along with. One 
of his strong points was the fact that we always 
knew who he is dragging; yes, he differs from 
most Navy men there. 

If Lou doesn't stay on the sea after graduation 
(we're betting he will), we know he will knock 
'em for a loop on the outside. It's the Navy's 
loss if they don't make him stay in!

"Don Juan" "Gus" "Novee" 

IT'S a far cry from the wilds of St. Louis to 
the sea, but Novee heard the call and answered 
along with the other 6x5 in the summer of 19x9. 
He just missed a scholarship for Washington tJ. 
from the University City High School; but he 
decided that brass buttons do, after all, make 
the man. 

Gus took one try at athletics Plebe Year, but 
since then he's been a charter member of the 
radiator club. That is, he's a member when not 
gulping mouthfuls of water trying to get "back 
on left side." Academics have never troubled 
him; in fact, after missing stars Plebe Year, he 
starred Youngster Year and it's been a habit 
ever since. 

As for his loves, the appellation "Don Juan," 
should convey much. Trite as it seems, he does 
have girls in every port and in some places that 
aren't even ports. Next to the fair sex his inter- 
ests lie in automobiles. He has only one bad 
habit — while safe in the arms of Morpheus he 
insists on imitating a cow reminiscently chew- 
ing her cud. 

Novee is energetic and ambitious, always will- 
ing to drop the latest Cosmo to help a less gifted 
classmate. When he leaves, the loss to the Acad- 
emy will be a gain to the Service.

Undismayed by his inability to make the team 
at L.R.H.S. he went out for the sport Plebe Year 
and soon developed into varsity caliber. As a 
result of his hard plugging he made three letters 
as varsity fullback. Seldom flashy, but always a 
consistent player, he gained fame not only as a 
reliable man, but as a great talker. He could 
always be seen and heard in the midst of every 
scrap and scrimmage. 

He never was one to hesitate when it came to 
dragging, and because of his long list of Arkansas 
femmes his four year average rated well above 
starring. Always willing to give a good looking 
girl a break by dragging her, he let academics 
go hang whenever opportunity knocked, yet he 
managed to stand in the upper half of his class. 

He goes down in the category of his classmates 
as one with a heart of gold, ability to procure 4.0 
blind drags, and a cheerful willingness to help 
and serve his fellows.

PUEBLO'S gift to the Naval Academy, Jonesy,

Plebe Year found "Man of Iron" Jones drifting 
to the athletic fields, and ever since, unless the 
hindrance was great, he has taken his daily work- 
out. Football and track received his attention, 
and he was always in the running. 

Academics snowed him under for a while

Reggie " " Sheets " " Tarxan 

REGGIE arrived early Plebe Summer, still a 
- trifle damp behind the ears, but nevertheless 
a Southern gentleman of the old school, suh! 
When "ac" year rolled around, he settled down 
to earn his stars and enjoy life at the same time, 
in both of which he has succeeded. In spite of 
being a savvy hombre, he was always ready to 
quit boning to rough-and-tumble during study 
hours, or sell you an idea of his. And can that 
guy argue! 

When it comes to social life, Reggie is right 
there among the elite, right in the center of a 
crowd of girls; drags a new one to every hop, too. 

Besides being one of the cogs that made the 
wheels go 'round in the Lucky Bag and Log 
organizations he was also up in the money on 
the tennis team. Want to get taken over the 
bumps in a little friendly game? Just play a 
set or two with Reggie, then take a look at 
the score. 

Whether he remains a disciple of King Neptune 
or takes the other road to cit life, we'll always 
think of him as a real shipmate and wish him 
worlds of luck in life.

SOME people call 'em Army brats, but he will 
always be "Mac" to us; "Mac," like in, 
"Hey, Mac, how's for a skag? " 

As for academics, he has a simple formula: 
secure the first month and any time thereafter 
when in possession of a point zip one velvet. 
He's still chortling in his sleep about the way 
he fooled "old man math" Plebe Year. Outside 
of losing our "Vic" for us a couple of months 
since, he has been above the danger line. 

Always dragging; or as he said, "Well, I 
gotta give the women a break, haven't I?" And 
you should have seen his locker door! A new 
one every leave. 

He has been quite an athlete, too. In summer 
it's chasing the tea fights; in fall it's the same; 
in winter it's warming the radiator; in spring 
it's track. His activities as a Spanish athlete are 
as widely known as his performances with the 
spiked shoes. And log-rolling is another of his 
pastimes; Wednesdays and Fridays find him on 
the job. 

He would give you the shirt off his back — 
if he could make a profit. Always has a smile 
and a growl . Always ready for chow or for work . 
With all these qualities, we realize he has been a 
good roommate, and will go far toward realizing 
his ambition — to loop a submarine.

that Nevada was a land of he-men overcame him, 
and he forged forth to convert his fellow men to 
that belief. The Academy seemed fruitful ground 
so here he came, and thereby we gained an in- 
sight of a man of the West. 

An active life has claimed him; but he has had 
time to open a few books and has been a "star 
man." Cosmo, Redbook, and Colliers are his 
standbys, and to them can be attributed his 
successful philosophy of life, "Live and let live." 
Always cheerful and ready to lend a helping 
hand. Life's ambition seems to be to command

"Bob" "Dooley" 

JUST another fair-haired lad from the Golden 
West, thoroughly indoctrinated in the belief 
that California is really "the land of eternal 
sunshine." Bob spent two years at the Univer- 
sity of California trying to become a mechanical 
engineer but he decided that that was too narrow 
a field as compared to what the Naval Academy 
could offer. 

Bob started out Plebe Year as an athlete; but 
after spending the first five weeks of academic 
year in the hospital with a broken leg, his ardor 
was calmed down. Thereafter he turned his 
attention to the other activities and became one 
of the wheels of progress in the Log and the

safe in betting that it was for something worth 
while. Wallie brought with him a warm, con- 
tagious smile that not only melts the ladies' 
hearts, but even occasionally thaws out one of 
the profs. His good humor and keen wit have 
won him a place before the throne at the many

His most outstanding vice, that we have dis- 
covered, is his spendthrift habit. However, we 
strongly suspect that he still has one of the first 
two dollars drawn Plebe Year.

ments well beyond range in spite of the fact 
that he considered studying as being work, and 
work as being — well — he enjoys seeing people

sion, not a religion, and he takes a little of

Underneath his easy going, care-free manner 
lies a lot of determination and ability that shows 
up when the occasion demands. He is the kind 
of buddy that any man would want with him

house, Carl's thoughts turned to higher educa- 
tion. Being robust and Herculean in both brain 
and brawn, he chose the Naval Academy as the 
mecca for his ambition with the culmination 
in a Naval career. Since that time he has been 
unwavering in his devotion to the great god 
Mars. He is unique in that he can also successfully 
woo Minerva and Morpheus. But his religion 
does not end there, for he is Mohammedan in 
that he is faithful to all his wives. He is methodi- 
cal, practical, and thorough, conscientiously 
applying his time. He has a perfect veneer of 
politeness and a ready wit. He has also a kind 
face and heart — the kind you cannot forget. 

He is, in his leisure hours, an ardent follower 
of Dame Fortune. He has a judicious taste for 
feminine pulchritude; but one can often hear 
him say, "I wish 1 could find my intellectual 
equal amongst the opposite sex." He gave vent 
to his atovistic instincts in football, soothed his 
sorrows with the sylphonic symphonies, at the 
same tirrie temperately indulging in practically 
all forms of athletics and amusements. 

The well-known tendency of the Aberdonians 
to keep that which is theirs and lose nothing 
can be applied to Carl in that he keeps his friends 
and never loses his temper.

he will realize his ambition for some time, but

into a spirited game of handball or tennis or 
even takes a duck in the pool. He looks on the 
sport world as a pastime and therefore does not 
take it seriously. 

In academics he is not brilliant, not that he 
has ever been bothered with lessons, excepting 
Plebe Year when a long sojourn across College 
Creek necessitated a fight with the departments 
that ended in a victory for him. He is always 
willing to show others what he knows about 
any subject, and, since he was one of the original 
Germans he does lots of showing along that line. 
His knack for obtaining facts and details, 
coupled with his subtle humor and good nature, 
will carry him far, and any ship in the Fleet to

FROM 'way down in North Carolina comes 
this Southern gentleman, and he's proud of it. 
As a result of his residence in the Tarheel dis- 
trict, he is addicted to Carolina songs, which 
inflict on him a crooning complex that especially

Bal tore himself away from the homestead to 
spend two years at the University of Florida; 
then he went to Marion, that fount of wisdom,

at such times as he indulges himself therein, he 
is devoted to street-car rides and long walks

VanBuren, Arkansas 

JACK came to us straight from that famous 
old state, Arkansas, after serving a four month 
sentence at the University of Arkansas and an 
equal stretch at Marion. He is a great enthusiast 
over baseball, and during the season could al- 
ways be found on Lawrence Field; he was practi- 
cally a walking dictionary of facts on the big 

In academics, he has had little trouble, except 
for one death struggle with the Steam Depart- 
ment from which he emerged victorious. One 
of his many accomplishments is the ability to 
read magazines with an amazing adroitness while 
dressing. Although Jack is not known as a 
"snake," he has a pretty steady influx of mail 
from the "podunk," showing his prowess among 
the fairer sex. 

For four years Jack has been the best of room- 
mates, always willing to come through with 
skags, soap, and other necessities in the hour 
of need. He has a winning personality with that 
typical Southern attribute, gentility, and is a 
loyal friend and classmate. Regardless of his 
future intentions, his many friends wish him 
luck, knowing that he will attain his goal. 

A noble heart beats 'neath that tattered skivvy

Maysville, Kentucky 
"Nancy" "Perce" "Bob" "E.P." 

FIRST in his classes, first in musical circles, 
and first at the wash basin every morning — 
there you have Bob Lee. 

Two years at the University of Kentucky con- 
vinced Ned that the life of a civil engineer held 
none of the lures that the Navy did, with the 
result that another Southern gentleman entered 
the portals of the Naval Academy. A most pleas- 
ing personality coupled with a nice sense of 
values has won for him the esteem of his class, 
a fact which is attested to by his being chosen 
to carry the responsibility of editing the Lucky 
Bag. We, who have watched him toil and labor 
over this job, can readily understand why it 
took its place among the best college annuals 
of the country. 

"A prophet is without honor in his own coun- 
try." With all his success "E.P." has been 
deprived of one of the greatest privileges which 
a midshipman has, that of returning home in 
uniform, for to Kentucky hill-billies, uniforms 
and revenuers are synonymous. 

Ned is further distinguished by having the 
neatest locker in the regiment. When questioned 
as to how he does it, he shrugs his shoulders 
in his characteristic way and says, "Aw, shucks, 
it isn't so hard to keep one shirt, three socks, 
and a collar straight if you try hard." 

"Come on now fellows, let's clean up this 
place. I'm in charge of the room this week, 
you know."

"Jack" "Wes" "Stewey" "Boh" 

THE brilliance and lavishness of the Ring 
Dance will long be remembered as the occa- 
sion on which Jack really came into his own 
element. The tremendous success of this affair 
was largely a matter of his planning and manage- 
ment. Ordinarily, Jack is a happy-go-lucky sort 
of fellow; so the pains he took in choosing favors 
and decorating Luce Hall were a revelation to 
his intimates. 

One of Jack's best features is an ability to 
adapt himself to any situation with the least 
possible trouble. Yet, paradoxically, he seems 
to derive the most pleasure from doing everyday 
things and letting the future take care of itself. 
His sudden flurries of temper are as individual as 
all his other characteristics , if for no other reason 
than because they are so infrequent and so short 
lived. This hurly-burley's chief claim to fame is 
his habit of taking a cold shower every morning, 
winter or summer. Indeed, his baffled roommates 
have spent many an hour pondering over this 
daily ritual. 

Never bored or disillusioned. Jack has been 
the beau ideal of both underclassmen and gradu- 
ates, friends, and acquaintances. 

"Everyone going to Bradford this Christmas, 
report around to Stewart's room and initial 
the list."

"Tom" "T.P." "Tape" 

EVER since that fateful day on Youngster 
Cruise when Tom kissed the blarney stone, 
his conversational abilities have known no 
bounds. On any given subject, this budding 
Gladstone can and often does take both sides 
of the argument, winning first one and then the 
other. His chief characteristic as a roommate is 
a Gibraltar-like resistance to adverse criticism. 
Words alone cannot daunt him. Even sad experi- 
ence serves but to add new zest to the game of 
living, as far as he is concerned. 

In Tape's hands the faculty for making friends 
reaches new heights. He has a positive genius 
for projecting his own good spirits, his own 
geniality, in a manner that would win over the 
most inaccessible person in the world. 

Another angle of a many-sided nature is 
brought to light by Tom's exploits on the soccer 
field. Although not a spectacular player, his 
work has won him a permanent place on the 
first string. As he often expressed it, "T sure 
talk a good game of soccer." 

Be it balancing a tea cup on one knee, swelling 
Carvel's Sunday throngs, or selling Trident sub- 
scriptions to unsuspecting Plebes, Tom does 
them all equally well and with an elan peculiar 
to no one else in the Regiment.

Springfield, Missouri 

Smitty ' ' ' 'Jimmy 

NOT Jones nor Brown, just Smith ;S-M-I-T-H; 
a rather commonplace name, yes, but he is 
far from a commonplace individual. James Ar- 
thur Smith, more familiarly known as Jimmy, 
comes from the "show me" mule state, Missouri. 
Undaunted by this he has proved to have neither 
the instincts of the mule nor the alleged incredu- 
lity of the usual Missourian. He has instead 
shown us the proof of his ability in many fields 
including the realms of baseball, basketball, 
ping-pong ball, ball room, and hit the ball; this 
latter referring to the academics. Speaking of the 
"ac's" Jimmy has encountered enough difficul- 
ties to discourage most of us; but in spite of 
these he has made the grade. Perhaps this will- 
to-survive is the inheritance from that Smith- 
Pocahontas combination. 

Miss a hop? Never! Dahlgren Hall would 
seem quite empty without Jimmy around to 
help pass the time away. We haven't ascertained 
as yet whether he dragged or was dragged, but 
whichever it was it seemed to have agreed with 
him, for he was at it constantly. 

He is one that is reserved and quiet, and lends 
a glow of basic truth to his surroundings, and 
last but not least, he is as unerratic as Gibralter.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin 

BEING born in Milwaukee and raised in 
Milwaukee, at an early age he became dis- 
gusted with life and decided to join the Navy. 
When he got here, he found that life was not 
always a bed of roses. In spite of being a sand- 
blower of the first water, he managed to be gay, 
happy, and to display the good sense of humor 
that a sand-blower must have. Aside from navi- 
gation and ordnance, nothing worried him 
particularly, unless it was the question of how 
much chow he could get, or whether or not the 
drag was going to let him know at the last 
minute if she could come down. Women have 
always interested him since he first dragged a 
twelve-year-old. Since then he has gradually 
worked up to the seventeen-year-old class. 

He went out for boxing, hoping thereby to 
keep down his navy chest — of true origin, Mil- 
waukee beer. He became quite proficient at stop- 
ping the punches. His ambitions, if any, were to 
sleep in the morning, not go to chapel and to get 
his picture in the Baltimore American. During 
September Leaves, he went fishing, for what? — 
none of us have ever found out. We only know 
that the family car got a good workout.

exam? Let's go see Eli."

BEHOLD a man of the world. He started way 
off in the Philippine Islands, and passed his

He overflows with energy, evidenced by the 
movement of hands, feet, tongue, or brain, and 
by rapid smoking of cigarettes. His rushing 
tactics are displayed by the star that has graced 
his collar for three years. 

Dewitt is quite an athlete, too. On Youngster 
Cruise he gave a famous exhibition of hanging 
by his chin from a hatch on the U.S.S. Florida. 
It was fortunate that he had a clipper jaw. Occa- 
sionally he gets exercise and awards by fencing. 

Grubbs can quarrel agreeably with any girl 
in the land. During Youngster days, his girlish 
companions equalled the number of scheduled 
hops; but a few blind drags convinced him that 
ignorance is not always bliss, nor even an ac- 
ceptable excuse around Crabtown. Now he 
swarms around every letter peddler who brings 
mail from Washington. 

After four years of walking and working, 
Dewitt is ready to put out to sea. The cruise 
will be very interesting. The last time he made a 
pleasure trip down the Bay with visitors aboard 
the ship his provision locker had to be emptied 
in emergency time. We all hope for better re- 
ports now.

"}Aetter" "Gerry" "Razpn" 

BEING an adventurous lad as well as a true 
son of Kentucky, Jerry saw the futility of a 
landlubber's life and got away from it all by 
faring forth to conquer the world, — or at least 
the difficulties and intricacies of a seafarer's life. 
With his first pair of shoes (the old mountaineer

become a close friend of us all during our four

those of his many "drags." He is indeed a lucky 

fierson who makes contact with this Kentucky

Corps on graduation. As far as we know, that

"Eddie" "Eli" 

YORK, famous for Navy ice machines, has 
made another equally valuable contribution 
to the Navy in Eddie. 

Undismayed by tales of theMath Department's 
blood thirstiness, Eddie came down via the 
Severn route and became one of the boys in 
July, 192.9. During Plebe Year, math took charge 
and deprived him of Christmas leave. After 
listening to yarns of others' conquests while on 
leave, Eddie turned to and showed his stuff by 
making nearly a star mark and emerging on the 
sunny side of 2.. 50. 

Even during Plebe Year, when snaking abili- 
ties were compelled to lie dormant, a knowing 
first classman saw possibilities and dubbed him 
"Sheik." The sag of Eddie's reinforced locker 
door gave mute evidence. There have been few 
mornings that upon returning from class he 
didn't find the table with a decided list to his 
side caused by the morning mail. Hops are 
Eddie's specialty, and his drags have never 
failed to awe the stag line. 

Any winter afternoon, the colder the better, 
found Eddie over in the pool drinking barrels 
of water and back stroking with the best of them. 

Possessor of an irrefutable memory that has 
pulled him out of many tight jams, an open 
good nature, a likeable character, Eddie will be 
remembered by us, and will go far in this old

BEHOLD the protruding chin and the deter- 
mined look on this promising young Scotch- 
man, known from coast to coast and from Can- 
ada to Mexico as the "Giffle." His greatest 
ambition is to be anything in the automobile 
world, and to this end he has forsaken athletic 
fields in his quest for knowledge concerning 
them. Rarely has the armory seen this "red mike" 
in pursuit of his amours, as these proved to be 
merely a secondary issue in his efforts at higher 
learning — something to be enjoyed only during 
those short excursions to the outside. If it is 
advice you desire, on any subject, you have only 
to ask and his long and tried experience is at 
your service. Perhaps it is a word you wished 
spelled, or perchance you need a theme, again 
it is the "Giffle." In fact, he is the answer to 
all your trials and tribulations. And last but not 
least, he will punish you with puns. This quick- 
witted, versatile linguist can offer a pun regard- 
less of what has been said. Ever reaay to oblige 
in this respect, whether called or uncalled for. 
In all justice to the "Giffle," let it be said that 
wherever he is, be it China or Europe, there is 
life and life worth living.

Waukegan, Illinois 


ATTENTION ! Presenting Swede Olsen of Wau- 
■L\. kegan, Illinois. He is following in the 
professional footsteps of three brothers, who, 
in turn, followed the example of their father, a 
before-the-mast seaman of the old school of iron 
men and wooden ships. 

Swede's hobby is sketching and shading, a 
factor which, in the past, nearly drove to dis- 
traction his classmates in the steam sections. 
However, it is only fair to mention that his 9:30 
steam class has pulled sat enough Plebes to 
redeem him in the eyes of all. The worst vices 
of this towering Norwegian are yarn spinning 
and, "I'll bet you it is, or it isn't; take your 
choice." Talented? Right. "You name it, I'll 
design it" is his by-word. 

Ladies? Well, just this: all blondes beware, 
as in this particular "the Swede" is the perfect 
gentleman, although seldom does the pursuit 
steal the student. He is one ever willing to lend a 
hand to any new scheme that promises as a 
reward a laugh, whether at his own expense or 
at another's. His is a personality bubbling over 
with happiness and goodwill toward all.

"Joe Gish" "Bill" 

JOE left his home in the shadow of Pike's Peak 
with the desire to see the world via the Navy 
route. Following the line of least resistance, he 
eventually found his way into the Naval Acade- 
my. Without over exerting himself, he has 
been quite industrious in keeping on the bright 
side of a i.5. His ambition has been to prove 
to the Academic Departments by means of exams 
that his daily grades were not commensurate 
with his ability. 

While not a devotee of any single sport, he 
has spent a good deal of his time on the field and 
in the gym "just playing around." Inter-com- 
pany sports have given him an opportunity to 
"play around" to good purposes. 

Gish didn't drag often at the Academy, but 
he is far from being a "red mike," as attested to 
by the stack of letters that invariably follow him 
on his return from leave. The fact that each 
leave gave him a new set of acquaintances, as 
well as a renewal of old friendships, is ample 
proof of his ability to make friends and keep them.

GENE came to Annapolis from the land of

a break for the Navy. Plebe Summer and its 
infantry drills held no terrors for Gene because 
before deciding to cast his lot with the Navy, 
he was a big shot in the R.O.T.C. Gene is very 
quiet and mild-mannered, and has not been 
actively interested in athletics but has spent 
most of his time keeping on the good side of a 
1.5. A little more work might have added 
greater security but the effects of many genera- 
tions of Southern blood is rather hard to over- 

His southern disinclination to over-exertion 
may have kept him from starring in athletics 
but it certainlv has not kept him from starring 
with the femmes, and as feminine company and 
conversation are his strong points, it's not in- 
frequently that he is seen bartering words with 
a pretty blonde lass, or perhaps a brunette. He is 
a great frequenter of hops. When questioned 
about his O.A.O., he replies that there is no such 
thing, but if we remember rightly, an olive- 
skinned maiden from Puerto Rico was, and per- 
haps still remains, number one in his affections.

Like the rest of us who came in with all sails

nal. Famous throughout the Regiment for his

"non-reg" manner, a desire to see things go right, 
and a quality for making many friends. 

A youthful hankering for the Point has been 
converted into discussions on "how those guys 
get by with it." Now he is sold on the Marines. 

As "one of the boys," he has been a great guy

him plenty of worries now and then and some- 
times regrets, but all in all he has done well in his

In spite of all that has been said before, Ike

study hours, because — well, "juice" and "nav" 
weren't as important as the letters. 

Bill is a "snake" in the true sense of the word. 
He dragged a different girl every week-end, and 
nor one of them has ever been able to hold him. 
Nothing worries him and his ready smile soon 
makes you forget that he has just taken your 
last skag. 

Plebe Year, Bill gave the rest of the "ham and 
eggers" something to look at over by the Post 
Graduate School, but the next year he decided 
to turn toward literary activities, and helped 
the Log along. 

Bill makes friends everywhere he goes, and 
to this day he has met only one person who 
didn't know someone that he used to know 
back in Virginia.

"Norm" "Flip" "Dusty" 

AFTER a few months of preparation at "Bob- 
^ bie's War College," Norm came to us via 
the Presidential appointment route. He hails 
from Upper Black Eddy, Pennsylvania, is a 
Navy Junior, and was, at one time, the youngest 
Eagle Scout in the United States — and he is very 
proud of all three of the above. 

To give a complete summary of Flip's char- 
acter in this short space would be an impossi- 
bility. Suffice it to say that he is good-natured, 
unselfish, has a cheerful disposition and a keen 
sense of humor. He is savvy — but not a star man. 

Norm's greatest trouble, since entering the 
Academy, has been the weaker sex. He consid- 
ered the week-end wasted if he had not delighted 
some fair damsel of some of the neighboring 
cities with an invitation to something or other. 
And he invariably falls in love. 

A devotee of Bacchus, Dusty enjoys life as he 
finds it. Sometime you might ask him how the 
fire hose in the First Battalion was unreeled. 

He confines most of his athletic activities to 
class swimming, water polo, and company 

"Hey, fellows, I've got seventy cents. Let's 
go to the movies."

Washington, Virginia 

A MBITION, and an inherent love of adventure, 
l\. caused Charlie to forsake his rabbit dog 
and shotgun and, after a year of prepping at 
Severn to take Annapolis by storm. His early 
enthusiasm soon spent itself, however, because 
of the dampening influence of routine. The 
Charlie of today finds perfect contentment in a 
pack of "skags" and a magazine or two. For 
cheerfulness, congeniality, and patience he has 
no equal. Add to this the fact that he always 
seemed to have extra stamps and cigarettes — and 
you know he made the perfect roommate. 

Academics, although continually presenting 
him with a number of serious obstacles to hurdle, 
never have succeeded in ruffling that sunny dis- 
position. "Well," he used to say in March of 
every year, "I got a two-seven in steam last 
month. Guess I'll secure." It can be said of 
Charlie that, even though delayed on the way, 
he was always there at the finish. 

He claims to be a "red mike" of the highest 
order; but it's on record that he proposed to his 
roommate's drag after an Army game in New 
York and was accepted. All the letters he gets 
aren't advertisements. 

To know Charlie is to like him, a true class- 
mate and a real friend.

Portland, Oregon 

ALTHOUGH it is no little distance from the 
- Academy to Karl's home in Portland, Ore- 
gon, he still loves his Pacific Coast, and when 
the time came he always hurried out there just 
as fast as modern transportation could take him. 
And there was a reason, even though he had the 
reputation of being a "red mike." 

His scholastic records have always been the 
very best. We are so used to having Karl take 
charge when we went to classes that we are 
sure to miss his "Pipe down! Dag Nab It!" 
And he never buried himself in books, either. 
Every spring he was out on the tennis courts, 
putting out his best efforts. Perhaps his most 
salient characteristic was his thoroughness. Also, 
we always did appreciate his dependability. 

Karl was always ready to listen to good music, 
but he never had a great deal of praise for the 
productions of the recognized exponents of 
modern rhythms. Maybe the reason for such 
discrimination was that Karl is a student of 
very good standing in the classic school of 
piano players. 

In spite of the fact that he was a rather quiet 
fellow, when you discussed a mutually interest- 
ing subject with him you never wished to stop 
— even though you're points of view coincided 
with his! With his engaging smile, pleasant 
manners, and large share of common sense, we'll 
have to look long and hard to find a more 
likeable man.

SOME four years ago, Shep packed up his 
trumpet and departed from the far, but glori-

studies at the Naval Academy. These he has pur- 
sued with varying degrees of success, depending 
on the interest the subject at hand aroused in 
him; for, once determined to accomplish some 
end, little avails in preventing him. The practical, 
rather than the theoretical side, of any study

During those hours not filled by the Academic 
Departments, one could almost always find him 
in the gym, trying to develop a figure like that of 
Charles Atlas, or in the music room, where he 
endeavored to imitate the syncopated rhythm of 
Red Nichols, with more than fair success. 

Outside the Dago book, his favorite literature 
is the Post and Physical Culture. The outstand- 
ing characteristic of Shep's life at the Academy, 
however, and a habit that will follow him 
throughout his coming years was his love of 
unrequired exercise. Except during various re- 
lapses to scoffing each year, Shep's daily routine 
was filled with innumerable stoopfalls, hand- 
stands, or Swedish, in addition to the usual daily 
workout in the gym. All this has brought its 
reward in the healthy and cheerful life Shep led 
at the Academy.

"Eddie" "Temp" 

THE Lone Star State is noted for her tall, 
strong, and silent sons. Eddie is no exception. 
From Waco to Annapolis, by way of Episcopal 
High School of Alexandria, Virginia, was a 
long but easily traversed route. Once inside the 
walls, Eddie quickly adapted himself to the 
new way of doing things and he has been coast- 
ing along serenely and securely ever since. 

Eddie has made a success in athletics and aca- 
demics alike. He is the kind of a man who never 
missed football practice, no matter how cold or 
wet the afternoon might be. This quality of per- 
severence is characteristic of all that he does, 
and consequently he is almost always successful. 
During the winter, when football was at its 
ebb, Eddie spent much time strumming a guitar 
and singing mournful songs about heartbroken 
cowboys. Second Class Summer he took time 
off to build a very fancy \'ictroIa cabinet that 
he was never able to use. And Youngster Year 
he tried vainly to grow some nasturtiums in a 
hidden flower box. But there was always method 
in his madness. 

Whether he elects to stay in the Service, or to 
fight the cruel world as a cit, Eddie is one of 
those who is marked in advance as "most likely 
to get ahead."

A TRUE son of Texas and proud of it; a big, 
silent man from a land of sagebrush and 
jack-rabbits. He left the sand and cows to be- 
come an officer and a gentleman. So far he has 
succeeded in a big way. Except that he won't 
sympathize with one when man's greatest worry 
is concerned, he is a perfect roommate. Women 
are non-existent to him — a perfect misogynist. 
Perhaps he is right. Notwithstanding, he is one 
of the happiest of men, always ready to argue 
with anyone on either side of any subject. He 
has a strong aversion to study and, because of it, 
has fought a four year struggle to a draw with 
the "juice" department. 

During the four years here, he has acquired a 
wide reputation as a bridge player, sea lawyer, 
and a shooter of velvet. Yes, a great fellow, 
and we all hope to meet more like him as we

San Diego, California 

"Steve" "Ambrose" 

I MUST go down to the sea again, to the 
lonely sea and the sky." Steve is a man who 
hails from God's country, or at least if you ask 
him he will admit that California, especially 
San Diego, is about the best place in the world. 
Having lived near the ocean practically all his 
life, Steve felt the urge that all famous sea- 
faring men have had, when he was but a boy. 
In fact he got his sea-legs trying to ride sea- 
lions while indulging in his favorite pastime of 
surf swimming. 

"Snaking" comes as natural to him as his 
ability to swim, and he has taken every advan- 
tage of dining-out privileges and liberty to be 
with the fair sex. However, sports such as swim- 
ming and wrestling have taken a great deal of 
his spare time. 

There are times when Steve has a mysterious 
air about him and we can never quite delve into 
his deep and thoughtful ponderings. He believes 
that the riddle of this great Universe can be 
solved and he spends many evening study hours 
thoughtfully looking into the great, twinkling 
heavens. It may be that he is developing a new 
theory, but we think it's love. 

A passion for dreamy music, and a cheerful 
and optimistic outlook on life made him a fine 
roommate. A craving for knowledge, especially 
that of the sea, will make him a good officer. 
Could we ask for more?

His Majesty " " Hal " " Sir Ronald' ' 

WHEN this tall blond giant began his career 
among the boys on the Severn, we decided 
he was a reincarnation of some old Norseman, 
but this he denies — probably because he's from 
New York. 

Optimistic — cheerful — likeable, with a capac- 
ity for making friends, Hal has progressed well 
along all lines of endeavor. His size immediately 
made him a source of delight to the crew coaches 
and in each afternoon's long grind up the river, 
Hal could be seen "lending a helping oar." 
His ability as a marksman gained him a position 
on the rifle team, while in the fall he chased the 
cross country squad about the landscape. 

Not only has Hal made progress in sports, 
but he has completely subdued the Academic 
Departments, and with his blue eyes and Nordic 
blond curly hair has made a number of feminine 
hearts quiver with ecstasy. His favorite pastime 
is learning languages, and he has spent innumer- 
able hours browsing through the library for new 
dialects. His renditions of Japanese while march- 
ing to class and in the halls have caused us to 
suspect him of previous activities in a laundry. 

With his frank manner and engaging personal- 
ity. His Majesty will make friends wherever he 
goes, and this should lead him far in the Fleet. 
As a classmate and friend, this Blondie of ours 
cannot be excelled.

Happy-go-lucky — carefree — optimistic —

"You take the big East- West highway — see —

Week-ends in the "village," and then week-

"Gary" "Attic" "Radjet" 

THIS big brawny lad trails from Long Beach, 
out where women are women and men are 
bone-crushers. He early acquired a lust for the 
Navy by journeying down to the dock to watch 
sailors come ashore, and by watching the bust- 
ling activities of men-of-war in his home town 

His ambition is to succeed in whatever he 
undertakes, even when he undertakes the court- 
ing of some fair damsel. His eyes seem to have a 
challenging twinkle in them, and he'll try any- 
thing once. He loves everyone and everyone loves 
him; but best of all he loves his sleep. Believe 
it or not, it was a familiar sight to see him come 
back from class at noon and put on his pajamas 
for a good night of rest. 

His brilliant work on the mat and his superb 
sportsmanship have won him the lasting popu- 
larity and admiration of the Regiment as well 
as having caused an extra beat in many a femi- 
nine heart. Fame rests as gracefully on the 
shoulders of this Navy Captain as on anyone. 

He admires the weaker sex, but he will tell 
you not to fall for them. Yes, 'tis true, thewomen 
put on their most seductive manners when Gary 
comes aboard. Gary's cheerful smile and sunny 
disposition make him irresistible, and we prophe- 
sy that some femme will get him soon. 

Yes sir, "when a feller needs a friend," he 
will always find one in Gary.

BEFORfi Larry joined the ranks of the sea-

As a roommate, Larry has proved himself to

academics, he soon discovered that his ability 
lay in the line of athletics, and he spends most

in the line for the backfteld. 

The hop committee will tell you that dragging 
means a great deal to Larry and to him O.A.O.

balancing tea cups out in Crabtown.

BROWNWOOD lost its greatest asset when a 
wind from the Texas plains deposited this 
curly-headed, six foot chap at the Academy

and decided to become a sailor. 

The Drum and Bugle Corps pounced upon the 
gift from the big, wind country, and took him 
into their ranks. However, he was meant for 
bigger things and couldn't be kept there. 

Academics never seemed to bother Y . C, as 
those in quest of knowledge called him. Aca- 
demics held little fear for him, and never was 
he seen in any of the wooden sections. 

A professed "red mike" he is rarely seen at 
the hops. He explains that he left such a trail 
of broken hearts at high school that he didn't 
want to repeat the process here. However, we 
think there is a different reason — back in Texas. 
In order to develop his writing wrist, he became 
a "pin pusher" while a Plebe. 

Vic has patiently awaited the day of his com- 
missioning, and will go out into the Fleet to gain 
the fame we know he will bring to Brownwood.

he would be attempting to make a rifle behave 
under a broiling sun; but such was the case, and 
infantry drill was just not one of his strong points. 

Academics gave him little trouble and every 
night usually found him surrounded by some of 
the less lucky ones to whom he explained the 
intricacies of juice, mechanics, the fourth dimen- 
sion, or what have you. His inventions are many 
and varied, and what time he did not spend on 
academics was passed reading technical books, 
on television or relativity. 

Every Friday afternoon found him warbling 
away with the choir. Whatever he may lack 
in voice, he makes up in a thorough knowledge 
of music. Although he seldom dragged or went 
to the hops here at the Academy, one glance at 
the letters, from the girls back home, piled on 
his table proved that he was not a "red mike." 
His ever ready smile and winning personality 
leave little to be desired.

AFTER three years at Aunt Rhodie's famous

him a few numbers higher than before. 

Nobody could call him "greasy," but he sel- 
dom had to answer the clarion call of "Fall in

proved a valuable aid to the class football team. 
He is — oh, well, practically normal in his weak- 
ness for the unfair sex. 

Benny is always ready to argue on philosophy,

SLIM waisted and broad shouldered, this debo-

him the Spanish influence of his beloved Cali- 
fornia. Many a fair heart in that land of sunshine 
has fluttered wildly at the sight of his tall figure 
and the sound of his gay laughter. He is not 
susceptible to the charms of the gentler sex, 
however, preferring always to keep the conver- 
sation free of such topics as ministers and the 
selection of furniture. His answers to letters 
from feminine acquaintances always begin with 
"Oi course I love you dearest, but . . . ." 

His is a happy, lazy nature, and there are few 
things which appeal to him more than the siesta. 
The thought of surging about and expending 
energy is appalling to him. Still he rouses him- 
self long enough to tear through the swimming

mer of no mean ability. 

The Saturday Evening Post and the Cosmo-

HE MIGHT have been transplanted from the

devil-may-care sort of chap, who has never been 
known to miss a good fight. He is also at his 
best when sloshing about in the foodstuffs. 

However, he has his simpering moments, too. 
Off the football field he has been known to gibber 
and drivel for hours about some devastating 
blonde, although he does not confine his activi- 
ties to blondes. Jack's fan mail is no light and 
trifling matter; in fact, he usually requires the 
aid of a roommate and two small boys to get the 
stuff cleared away in order to get in the room. 
His answers usually begin with, "Now don't be 
unreasonable, dear — ." Never yet, however, 
has he been caught up that famous old creek 
without a means of locomotion, despite the 
covert smirks and sly nods on the part of his 
jealous colleagues. 

Jack has the Service at heart, being an adven-

for his achievements to reveal that which his 
modesty concealed. Quietly and persistently he 
breezed along, gathering a host of friends — 
idolized by femmes and admired by men. Unfor- 
tunately, sessions of the Radiator Club were 
never livened by his presence, because the gym 
team claimed and developed him into an aerial- 
ist. His rise from obscurity to stardom on the 
flying rings was so rapid it was rightly termed 
phenomenal. Fortunately for naval aviation, his 
air mindedness extends beyond the confines of 
Macdonough Hall. 

In academics the tangible results of his efforts 
were disproportionate to energy expended; but 
after one close shave he kept the Academic Depart- 
ments at bay. 

A mania for balancing his cap on one ear was 
never appreciated by certain members of the 
Executive Department who refused to concede 
such obvious saltiness in one so young.

Studies never bothered him very much except

CINCINNATI born and Chicago bred, what

Mostly, we are conscious of the smaller town's 
effect. A love for music developed in the lee of a 
conservatory of music has led him from the uku- 
lele to the trombone. In the gentle art of "snak-

middling, and short girls. Though carrot-topped, 
his preference is blondes and brunettes, with only 
occasional lapses in a titian and platinum-haired 
direction. For literature he turns to that great 
periodical, the Saturday Evening Post, though 
it may be said with truth that he has read books. 
Fencing, the orchestra, and bridge claimed any 
spare time left from the strenuous routine he 
allotted to himself. But withal he has a slightly 
quizzical outlook on life, and it is the saving 
grace of humor coupled with the gems of phil-

women, fast horses, and corn liquor. To hear 
him talk, one would think that these make the

attendance at the hops, he rarely brought a

In the line of sports, (both outdoor and in- 
door), Jeb demonstrated his ability on the bas- 
ketball court, in the ring, and in wielding a 
tennis racquet. 

Though the Academic Departments gave him 
a good stiff punch occasionally, he always came 
out on top in the end. His love of writing has 
led him through the mazes of poetry and prose, 
and he was a constant contributor to the Trident. 

Lastly, but not least, Jeb's strong bass voice 
has helped the Glee Club give us the fine music

limited to practice with that organization, for 
his cheerful disposition finds expression in song 
almost any time and any place.

"Ray" "Tommy" "Bus" 

RAY THOMPSON? . . . Sure I know him." 
- That's what one hears around here, for Ray 
has been one of the outstanding men in the acad- 
emy for the past four years, and his name appears 
wherever swimming is listed. 

Six-feet-two, blond, and all man, Ray hails 
from Maryland and has made an outstanding 
name for himself down here; a name not only in 
athletics, but in academics as well. His ability in 
handling differential equations is second only to 
that of tossing a lacrosse ball or cutting the 
water in the hundred. 

As for appearance and personality, ask the girls 
he "drags." Tommy's really got them and he 
gets along with everybody he knows and has 
never had a serious quarrel with anyone — not 
even his roommate. Ray spends his spare time 
sleeping, eating, and answering his mail — fan 
and otherwise — and he can do all three with an 
ability acquired only after years of unceasing 

If Tommy stays in the Navy, he's sure to make 
an outstanding officer, but if his leaning toward 
engineering carries him into civilian fields, he'll 
make even a greater name there. He has that 
extra something which makes him a little more 
than the average man.

"Pete" "Son" 

SINCE the spring of '19 the Lone Star State has 
been bemoaning the loss of one of her favorite 
sons, for it was then that '33 claimed Pete as its 
own. We had heard of the he-men reared in the 
great Southwest and in Seth we saw this realized. 

His manliness and loyalty have enabled him 
to count as true friends all those who know him. 
In athletics Pete has confined his ability to that 
gentle sport of boxing. Whether his reputation 
acquired in the ring is responsible for his con- 
quests of the fairer sex we cannot say. Neverthe- 
less, it is evident that Pete has caused far more 
than his share of concern and worry to feminine 
hearts. Though Pete's fame has not Ijeen acquired 
in academic circles, and though he has several 
times been honored with the Superintendent's 
notes (with concern) he was always on top when 
February and June rolled around. 

Pete has been blessed with two inestimable 
qualities — rather two priceless assets for our 
routine life — he is never excitable and is easy- 
going to the point of perfection. For such a true 
friend and classmate, we can foresee nothing 
short of inevitable success, whether Pete seeks 
this in the service or in civilian life.

Chicago, Illinois 

"Red" "Bob" 

CINCINNATI born and Chicago bred, what 
more can be said? From the "Queen of the 
West" came a love for the fine arts. From Chicago 
came the restlessness and push of the metropolis. 
Mostly, we are conscious of the smaller town's 
effect. A love for music developed in the lee of a 
conservatory of music has led him from the uku- 
lele to the trombone. In the gentle art of "snak- 
ing" he in turn has fancied buxom, lithe, tall, 
middling, and short girls. Though carrot-topped, 
his preference is blondes and brunettes, with only 
occasional lapses in a titian and platinum-haired 
direction. For literature he turns to that great 
periodical, the Saturday Evening Post, though 
it may be said with truth that he has read books. 
Fencing, the orchestra, and bridge claimed any 
spare time left from the strenuous routine he 
allotted to himself. But withal he has a slightly 
quizzical outlook on life, and it is the saving 
grace of humor coupled with the gems of phil- 
osophy, occasionally coming through the smoke 
rings from Black Maria, the trusty pipe, that 
gives us our last and true impression of the lad.

Tyrone, Pennsylvania 

"Freddy" "Ron" 

FREDDY hails from Western Pennsylvania, 
from the vicinity of the famous Horseshoe 
Curve. Perhaps that explains the good luck that 
pulled him through the tough accident Plebe 
Summer. For a while we were afraid that he was 
going to be a civilian again, but Fate spared him 
for the Navy. 

Though grown accustomed to Navy beans, 
while in the mess hall his eyes often took on a 
dreamy, far away look. The guess is that he 
dreamt of the pumpernickel, wienersnitzel and 
other German delicacies of his native state. 

Fred is a good sport and a staunch friend, 
always willing to help a friend along till pay 
day or to ' drag blind ' ' on the shortest of notices. 

As a property man, he has worked hard, 
contributing to the successes of many theatricals 
and musical programs. 

While he was not a member of any varsity 
athletic squad, he is a vigorous sportsman, 
playing good golf, tennis, and solitaire. 

All in all, he's an ideal pal, who can fit into 
any situation, add life to any party, and cause 
most girls to look twice or even thrice.

" Zolly" "Joe" 

HAVING been left a ' 'widower' ' early in my 
Naval Academy career, it now becomes 
necessary to make this an autobiography instead 
of the customary roommate write-up. 

I'm a long drink of water from that seat of 
culture in New England, which has provided me 
thus far with only a Bostonian accent. 

While still young and idealistic, I aspired to 
athletic fame, and paddled around backwards 
for a time on the fair Severn with the beef trust. 
Quickly seeing the error of my ways, I became 
in rapid succession a tenth rate boxer and a 
convert of George Jean Nathan, who first put 
the unspoken thoughts of radiator club into 

Never having spent enough time with them 
to get acquainted, I cannot say with certainty 
whether studies bore me or floor me. 

Possibly because of my physiognomy, I re- 
ceived handshakes instead of kisses in infancy. 
This naturally made me a member of the Glad 
Handling Reception Committee, which was the 
usual excuse for missing drills and inspections. 

As my claims to fame, I have a bachelor 
apartment, an obsession toward arguments on 
prohibition and a Spartan-like habit of passing 
up chocolate eclairs at dessert.

"Charlie" "Tap" "Savvy" 

ALMOST any name you would choose to call 
- this one Charles Leighton Moore Jr., would 
not change him one bit. This Southern gentle- 
man, for he is a real rebel, is true to his type, 
refined in all manners, likes plenty of time to do 
anything, and enjoys a good time even with all 
his ambition which has led him quite a chase. 

His first big step was into the regular Navy 
but that was only a means to an end; he had to 
come here. Once here, Charlie worked earnestly, 
in his way, as his nickname "Savvy" well im- 
plies. Math was his meat, as were practically 
all of his subjects except dago, until his Second 
Class Year rolled around. Then nav gave him 
something to think about, so he thought, as he 
always went into deep meditation when he could 
not make at least a 3.1 for the month. 

Class football was Charlie's sport in the fall, 
while in the spring you saw him out early swing- 
ing his tennis racket, offering a good game to 
any man. 

As friend, he is all that is ever wanted, willing 
to do anything, all that is his is his friend's, a 
man who will have no trouble anywhere, and

New Philadelphia, Ohio 

"Vanity" "Bob" "Simplex" 

BOB had to overcome all the difficulties 
encountered by those who come in so late in 
August. Everyone else was by that time, an old 
salt. It did not take him long to catch on as long 
as he was at the constant call of ' 'Thug' ' Gaulin . 
"Thug" and his friends soon had invented many 
nicknames for Bob due to his trouble with slip- 
sticks. But slipsticks and "Slipstick" have never 
worried him a great deal. If he should ever get 
mad (literally) at a problem, or at some special 
English construction in one of the text-books, 
just stand from under until he cools down. He 
really means nothing by it, but he does love to 
vent his spleen. 

Bob made the ideal roommate, the kind that 
is supposed to be non-existent. He never bor- 
rowed anything, and always kept a good supply 
of soap, sheet, shirts, and towels . . . enough to 
go around. 

He is one who ardently wishes that the Navy 
operated on dry land. Cruise chow, nasty weath- 
er, and heavy seas, have always held sway 
over him. 




Jamestown, New York 

"Ken" "Shah" "Oscar" 

TALL, dark, handsome, straight from the 
wilds of Jamestown he came in answer to 
Uncle Sam's bidding. By some last minuteshrink- 
ing, he passed the height test and became a 
"first-day," charter member of '33. Never having 
heard of water polo, he chose it as his Plebe 
Summer pastime. Although he later turned to 
crew (a trip across on the Leviathan was nothing 
to be sneezed at for all the "strawberries" in the 
world!), he always was rounded up for the inter- 
class water polo games. 

His mild and sunny disposition is ruffled only 
at meals, where he gets slightly on the rough 
side of "grabby." To him a study hour without 
a "Post" was as unbearable as it was unknown. 
If ever a day went by without a letter from the 
O.A.O. Oscar found it insufferable. 

His ambitions, as near as mortal can discern, 
are to get married; own a yacht; and sail around 
the world, forgetting all the cares and navigation 
he ever had. 

When it comes time for sad farewell, hisfriends 
will shake his hand and say, "Beware the calms 
and fogs, oh Kenneth dear. Remember — worry 
makes you bald. Awaiting you is victory and 
all, but first choose well the course to steer."

"Paul" "Ahab" " Skippy" 

HE IS just another Marine Junior who came 
to our haven of rest to spend four quiet 
years. However, the rest never came. There was 
always either cross country or track gear drying 
on the radiator giving the room an athletic 
atmosphere. Academically — "doggone I wish 
they would say what they mean in these text- 
books" or "if they are going to draw sketches 
why don't they put in the dotted lines"; but, 
nevertheless, he always marched to class in the 
low numbered sections. In between times, it was 
hard work keeping up with him. There were 
too many people out in town to take care of 
himself, so all of his buddies got let in on his 
"gravy trains," while he went on making new 

We don't yet know all of the places where he 
spent his childhood days (the Marines seem to 
go everywhere); but he is on his way back to 
them now. If the Navy won't take him where he 
wants to go, there is always the Camel Corps. 

Of course there are a few peculiarities. "We 
may as well go to the movies tonight. We have 
to pay for them anyway. I wonder who is drag- 
ging my Dream Girl tonight?"

Ahab " " Blecker ' ' ' Shrimp 

THE Shrimp, tall, and somewhat handsome 
son of the Southland, came to us from 
Georgia University. Somewhere he had heard of 
the life of luxury which the great American pub- 
lic considers the lot of a "pampered pet." He 
was probably a bit disappointed but he has 
growled no more than was his rate. His fondest 
thoughts are of the "lighter than air." Already 
he is thinking of the Macon for a command. 
We wish him luck and happy landings. 

P.D. isn't a ' 'snake. ' ' But he should have been. 
The fairer sex finds him irresistible. And his 
attitude of utter unconcern only makes him the 
more desirable to feminine ways of thinking. 
The explanation of his seeming imperviousness to 
Dan Cupid's darts is obvious when one under- 
stands that the one little girl is waiting down in 

President of the Radiator Club, an excellent 

man for close harmony (but a h of a soloist). 

Slim is in demand when the gang begins to gather 
(as it always has) for the old songs which are 
always "good." Or perhaps a bull session is in 
progress. Ahab can be counted on for a tall yarn 
or a new joke that you might tell your best girl 
but probably wouldn't. 

Through four long difficult years, filled with 
pleasure, he has listened patiently to our woeful 
tales of the latest run in with the current D.O. 
and then passed the matter off with a humorous 
remark making one feel that perhaps life is 
still worth living.

"Felix" "Russ" "Baxter" 

AFTER hanging around the Atlantic in a 
- freighter, and weathering the storm that 
accounted for the "\'estris," Baxter finally per- 
suaded the medicos that it wasn't high blood 
pressure but anticipating nervousness that caused 
his heart to go "pitty-pat" when they applied 
that well-known stethoscope. That little bit of 
persuasion just started him on an interminable 
series of arguments. Whether a steam prof or a 
lowly plebe, he argued for the love of it, and his 
successes speak well for the High School debat- 
ing team whose chief pride he was. 

His pet hobbies are math, steam, the ladies, 

and that d n fiddle. Besides standing at the 

top of his class, Russ has saved more than one 
classmate from the "ac" departments. He pro- 
fesses to be a "red mike," but his numerous 
letters and his intimate acquaintance with the 
"yard-engines" and "crabs" don't jibe with 
that title. 

"Why waste your energy on an athletic grind 
when a good bull session is so much more fun?" 
Consequently his magazines got dog-eared from 
much use during study hours and afternoons. 

You can bank on Russ, though, 'cause he'll 
come through in a pinch. And you can bet your 
life that he'll be Admiral Russell some day (if we 
still have a Navy then). Here's luck!

ED CAME down out of the coal regions of 
Pennsylvania to give St. John's a break, but 
one year there proved to him that to rate with 
society and the weaker sex in town you had to 
have brass buttons. No doubt Ed's brother told 
him what a "swell" place this was. Like him, 
Ed is quite an aviation enthusiast. 

Ed is a very conscientious and studious chap, 
and was to have been a doctor. The first term of 
Youngster Steam was his only close shave with 
the Academic Departments and the class almost 
lost a good man. His only affliction was a very 
bad case of nerves during exam weeks. For 
recreation and exercise he confined his versatile 
ability to track and inter-company competition. 

Although of a rather quiet nature Ed must 
have a true Navy line in his letters, for he gets 
quite a lot of fan mail each week — not all from 
the Annapolis tailors either. Ed's philosophy 
is to keep the situation well in hand, and never 
let a fair skirt give you enough line to choke 
yourself. Being neither frivolous nor foolish will 
help him to go far and accomplish much in 
achieving his goal.

••Bob" "Kodak" 

BOB hails from Washington, and it was a sad 
day for the University of Maryland when he 
decided to follow the sea — or possibly the air — 
as a profession. Plebe Year, Bob went out for 
football but was not destined to get very far for 
he received an injury which forced him to aban- 
don the game. Since then he has confined his 
athletic prowess to the Indian game of lacrosse. 

In his spare moments, which were few, Kodak 
spent his time with the latest novel, took pic- 
tures, and kept up his "mem" book. At other 
times, Kodak was usually "dragging" or "strut- 
ting his stuff" at Carvel. His winning smile and 
genuine good humor always make things look a 
little brighter. Maybe this explains his way with 
women. However, we venture to say that Kodak 
will never have any trouble getting along with 
his associates. 

Bob is a conscientious chap, is studious, but 
loves his fun and therefore never allows work to 
interfere with pleasure. Nevertheless, he is 
always out on top as far as his academics are 
concerned, and never seems to have a care in the 
world. In short, Kodak is an all around good boy, 
a regular fellow, and we wish him lots of luck.

BILL first opened his eyes among the lakes and 
hills of Northern New Jersey. When he 
decided to play tag-along to his brother, Benny 
Mott, '30, he emigrated to Rhode Island and 
prepared for the ordeal. Always desirous of see- 
ing both sides of a question, he migrated to South 
Carolina to find out who did win the Civil War. 

Hailing from three States in the Union and 
having lived in several more. Bill entered the 
Academy with a wide outlook on life and has 
often served as arbitrator between the Rebels and 
"Damn-Yankees." Finding the life at the 
Academy to his liking, he decided to stay. His 
academic record will testify that, except for a 
struggle with plebe steam, he had little difficulty 
in doing so. Always interested in running, as a 
sport, his attention was centered on cross coun- 
try and track and he took an active part in them. 

Bill's fan mail was plentiful and he dragged 
occasionally, so it would not be fair to call him a 
"red mike." He is a lover of good music and 
has a fine collection of records with none which 
suggest jazz. 

Bill's unselfish desire to please others has won 
for him many friends in and out of the Navy. 
This desire, coupled with a pleasant disposition, 
is bound to spell success in life for him.

Chelmsford, Massachusetts 
"Bob" "Sunshine" "Bones" 

WHAT! Never heard of Chelmsford, Mass.? 
Well that's strange because it's quite a 
well-known town, having a long list of accom- 
plishments, one of the most noteworthy being 
the production and upbringing of our Bob. 
We think one day when Bob brings Chelmsford 
more into the limelight they'll look back with 
pride on that bit of handiwork turned out in 
May, 1910. 

There is nothing indefinite or indecisive about 
this lad. He has his ideals and ideas and while 
not forcing them upon anyone is perfectly con- 
vinced of their soundness and application. For 
instance, hear him on women, "They are a 
necessity, of course, but not something to be 
looked on seriously until one's mind is made up 
to marry." Time enough then to pick the girf, 
says our "red mike, " and much less chance of 
getting burned beforehand. 

His athletic activities have been confined to 
keeping fit at all times, and there's scarce an- 
other man in the Regiment who can boast of a 
better all around condition. Bob has an innate 
horror of ever becoming flabby, and our guess is 
that thirty years hence there will not be much 
change in the husky young animal we see today. 
And thirty years hence, too, the memory of him 
as a fine shipmate and classmate at the Naval 
Academy will be just as strong as it is now at 
the end of our four year cruise. 



Hattiesburg, Mississippi 

IN '19 news reached Mississippi that the U. S. 
had a Navy. Hugie, hearing about it, decided 
that was the place for him. Hence, putting on a 
pair of shoes, he packed up his toothbrush and 
headed North, bringing with him a record for 
savviness and the longest drawl heard north of 
Atlanta in the last century. Since that time the 
drawl has shortened a little, but the reputation 
has increased and spread. 

Being handicapped by savviness and a lack of 
stature, he has spent his spare time not in ath- 
letics but in working on the Log, putting to- 
gether some infernal machine over in the steam 
building, or reading biographies of short men 
who have become famous. Needless to say, he 
thinks they were all pikers. 

It has long been his ambition to sleep through 
reveille and then, getting up about noon, to 
start spending the third million. In his spare 
time he intends to improve on the Einstein 
theory and carry on where Steinmetz left off. 

In the end, though, we will remember him, 
not for his savviness, scrappiness, his drawl, or 
his few vices, but for his quiet unassuming per- 
sonality and his cheerful, good humored friend- 
liness. A "red mike," in self defense and an 
officer and a gentleman by nature.

Factoryville, Pennsylvania 


BUD, early feeling the call of the sea, packed 
his grips and left the little town of Factory- 
ville, Pennsylvania, for the Navy. 

During his high school and preparatory school 
years he had tried many different kinds of sports 
and athletics; football, tennis, skating, and sail- 
ing having been his favorites. However, when 
he reached the Naval Academy he seemed to 
forget these, for after a brief try at boxing Plebe 
Summer, he went out for crew. As one of the 
plebe crew, a member of the "jayvees," and 
later of the varsity, he has made an enviable 
record. In spite of this, he often in his spare time 
bemoaned the lack of strong tennis opponents. 

Among his other diversions we find an interest 
in the fairer sex, a hobby of working on dilapi- 
dated wrecks that he calls cars, and, occasionally, 
the "academic urge." His one and only ambition 
is to hunt for wrecked treasure ships. Many an 
hour will he spend talking about them. 

His good qualities are not limited to athletics, 
for he has a personality that has won for him 
more friends than fall to the lot of most of us. 
They are attracted by his unfailing good humor, 
his sportsmanship, and his willingness to lend a 
helping hand.

ENTER the Sea Beast ! Swede comes of a war-

it. So de Rysteryck turned to other things for 
relaxation. He traveled, he studied, he sat and 
thought; finally, he became imbued with a 
craving for things nautical while sailing his wee 
boat on Lac Leman. Home he came, but he was 
frustrated. They put him in a cavalry school to

he says that it was the horse that bit him, but if 
so, whence came the teeth marks on the horse?

ON A certain day in early June of 192.9, the

the mysteries of the life of the sea. To the tune of

He immediately became "Zack" and, while 
the allusion is somewhat obscure, Zack he is

cry for him, especially "yard engines." They 
love to see him flex his flexible teeth. (Oh yes,

— his governing principle was that study hours 
were made for sleep, and only Providence kept 
him ofl^the "tree." Lazy? Yes, lazy as the devil, 
but every winter, spring, and fall found him out

IN LOOKING over his ancestral archives, Sun-

deigned to follow the profession of the sea. He 
considered a family without a sea-faring limb 
somewhere on its tree as being a complete failure; 
so rather than stand by and see this good old 
Irish family of Reedy go down into oblivion 
without the mellowing influence of the sea, he 
planted himself within the confines of the 
Academy walls to procure the education neces- 
sary for the calling. 

Battle Axe was one of the fortunate few who 
usually stayed comfortably sat by doing a 
minimum amount of studying. He preferred 
reading Mr. Burrough's conception of life on 
Mars. When Bull was eight weeks old he kicked 
a football through an attic window, and then 
kicked his father in the shins for wanting to 
spank him. It was only natural then, that he 
took up the great American sport. He proved 
himself a good guard and the right man to lead 
the Big Blue Team. But football didn't take all 
of the Nymph's time. During the winter he 
traded a few punches and even took a whack 
at lacrosse in the spring. 

This big smiling athlete has a way with 
women that seems to please them. His morning

"Red" "Tad" "Professor" "Catesby" 

THE Purple Eagle Soars Again." Such might 
have been the headline in the Terre Haute 
journals when Red took off for the Naval Acad- 
emy. His interest in things nautical was prob- 
ably aroused at an early age when he sailed toy 
boats in the Wabash, but since coming to the 
"Cradle of the Navy," this interest seems to 
have waned and his ideas, too, have gone domes- 
tic. Perhaps this is a result of dreaming too much 
about breakfast nooks, ivy-covered cottages, and 
bicycles built for two. His ambitions are not 
misplaced, however, for no one in the Academy 
wields a broom with such utter disregard of the 
dust he scatters. 

In winter Catesby is an outstanding (or rather, 
outsitting) member of the Radiator Club, but 
spring and fall find him cavorting on the grid- 
iron. His prowess is a result of the three years 
he spent as one of Garfield's Purple Eagles, who 
brought fame to their Alma Mater by winning 
the city championship three consecutive times, 
the last one under the captaincy of the Professor. 

We'd all think him a "red mike," if it weren't 
for the picture on his locker door and the 
God-forsaken expression he wears for weeks 
after leave. He'd rather argue than study and 
this, coupled with an unconquerable aversion 
to non-technical subjects and a purple passion 
for daily letters to Terre Haute, prevents him 
from standing close to the top. 

An all 'round good fellow who doesn't lose 
his good humor in the face of after-leave gripes 
and the eccentricities of his roommate.

"Bob" "Omar" 

ROBERT is one of those favored few — the 
- President's annointed. In turning his talents 
to the Service he is following illustrious footsteps 
— and doing it right nobly. His tender years 
were spent in Washington and all along the 
West Coast, and each clamors to claim him. 

When he first arrived here he had already 
gotten his bearings; since then he has never 
lost them. One classmate had an entirely mis- 
taken idea that the middle C. H. stood for Carvel 
Hall. They don't at all, and Robert's course 
during these years has been steady and through 
no rocks of romance. The academics, except for 
one particularly close brush after Plebe Christ- 
mas Leave, have not given much trouble, and 
there is plenty of time for indoor and outdoor 
sports. He is one of those few with enough am- 
bition and fortitude to run around the track 
before reveille — not in winter — and other times 
he plays tennis or sails the briny deep. But if a 
prime ability be mentioned, it is golf. This 
ancient and honorable science is his true hobby 
and forte. Many a first classman has profited by 
his sound instruction. 

When Robert is interested in anything, he 
becomes truly enthusiastic about it. And he can 
be counted on to accomplish anything he seri- 
ously starts — from fixing a "vie" to sailing to 
Bermuda. These qualities, with his unselfish 
helpfulness, make him a sought-after shipmate.

"Jimtnie" "Ike" 

JIMMIE, leaving the affairs of the nation's 
capital in competent hands, took departure 
from that fair city and set sail on course seventy 
(psc) to spend the next four years of his life on 
the banks of the Severn. And Plebe Year thor- 
oughly convinced Jimmie that admirals are 
made, not born. 

If there's anything interesting on this old 
planet, Jimmie knows about it; he's always up 
on the latest news and the best books. During 
the winter he spent his afternoons in the fencing 
loft where he very easily distinguished himself 
as a genuine "pin pusher." And when spring 
rolled 'round you'd find him on the rifle range 
putting one bullet after another right through 
that little black ring in the center. If the wind 
was too strong for rifle practice, Jimmie was 
always the first in line to have his boat slip 
signed. "The rougher the better," says Jimmie, 
and always managed to be in the neighborhood 
of the lighthouse when the six flag appears on 
the Reina. 

Jimmie is a man of many moods, especially in 
his love affairs. Now he is in love, now he is a 
confirmed misogynist; but the manner in which 
he tells you this convinces you he does not take 
the fair sex too seriously.

"Bill" "Cow-boy" 

FROM out of the wilds of Texas, came this 
bronzed son of the Southwest. Proving no 
exception to the rule that men from the Lone 
Star State are men. Bill soon showed that he 
would be an outstanding member of his class. 

The gymnasium drew his attention and every 
afternoon found him there hard at work at the 
flying rings. Despite a year's lay-off, due to a 
trip to the hospital, his continual hard work 
and natural ability were finally rewarded. 
Youngster Year he was barely nosed out of first 
place in the intercollegiates, but the next year 
he came back with a vengeance and made the 
highest score ever made in an intercollegiate 
gymnastic meet. But Bill had set his goal higher, 
and aspired to the Olympics where he secured a 
second place in the finals. 

Academics have never troubled him. Only his 
deep love for sleep has kept him from making 
higher marks. He is partial to straight razors, 
sun baths, and "fufu." 

His easy going and likeable nature has 
earned him many friends. He is always willing 
to help someone in trouble or show someone a 
new trick on the rings. His teammates showed 
their high regard for him by electing him their

AND a little man shall lead them." George's 
■L\. stature has never stood in his way. His 
success at Culver and high school proved that. 

The achievements of our white haired George 
are due no doubt to the whole hearted manner in 
which he does things. When George goes 
"unsat," it is by no small margin. When he falls 
in love he is deeply affected — for a time; then he 
is through with women forever. 

His naval career has been colorful so far. His 
sea daddy gave him the right start as a plebe 
and instilled into him a desire to make a good 
naval officer. Late to his first sea duty, George 
stayed behind to go to Poughkeepsie with the 
Plebe Crew. His trip on the Leviathan to join 
the cruise increased his love for the sea. "rhis 
ardor, however, was somewhat dampened by 
hammocks, bright-work polish and compart- 
ment cleaning. They say this builds character, 
if so, George is made. 

Geep has friends everywhere and it is only 
necessary to know him to realize how big a heart 
he carries in his small frame. The Academy's 
loss, in this case, is certainly the Fleet's gain.

THOMAS began his career as an engineering 
student at North Carolina State, but having 
a touch of sea fever and tiring of university life 
he scraped the tar from his heels and bid farewell 
to those beautiful hills and fine roads to join 
the followers of Neptune. Being one of the 
savants of the class Tom has never been worried 
by academics with the possible exception of 

Having no use for the fair sex, excepting one 
member, Thomas likes music, entertainments, 
and sports. Where an exciting game of dominoes 
is in progress there also is Thomas. Like all great 
thinkers, he plays a great game of chess but has 
never learned to draw to an inside straight. His 
chief concern is sound, refreshing sleep. Those 
who never saw Thomas turned in to the tune of 
six blankets and three pillows have never seen a 
royal bed chamber. In the spring, however, Tom 
devotes his hours to baseball, and more than a 
few times he gives the horsehide a four base ride 
during every season. 

Tom's cheerful personality and his willingness 
to help the "wooden" make him a precious 
friend. He should go far along the road of success.

ALL of Louisiana's paper mills, bayous, and

Ray fell in love with the gymnasium imme-

working out on the rings. Any afternoon you 
could find him performing stands and swings

Studies are the least of his worries. He usually 
"boned" only when the "Cosmo" was out in

taking sun baths, and his happiness by sleeping. 

The women don't trouble him a bit. He says 
there are just as many "bricks" one place as 
another, so why worry about them. They make 
themselves known to Hodag soon enough. 

And can he tap-dance? Pud Lukas and "Sugar-

In spite of his many shortcomings, Hodag 
always has a funny story to tell, and his humor 
and jovial nature make him welcome wherever

WELL, this term I am going to pile up a 
little velvet the first month," but usually 
the end of the term found Max not so sure of his 
chances of continuing his naval career. Still he 
has always managed to keep one step ahead of 
the Academic Departments and has made every 
Christmas leave but one. 

Max hails from Bridgeport, Illinois, where he 
received his early education at the Bridgeport 
Township High School; he entered the Navy for 
no good reason at all, mainly because he had the 
appointment, but since, he has come to like it 
and wishes to remain in the Service. In high 
school, Max was quite a football player, and 
here he has always given his earnest support to 
the class team; this, however, is as far as his 
athletic interests have gone. He always seems 
to have found the radiator more interesting dur- 
ing the afternoons after drill. 

He is quite a "snake" and more than one heart 
was broken when he left the plains of Illinois; 
now almost every leave a new victim is added 
to the list. 

We will always remember Max as one who is 
patient with everyone and very broad minded. 
He will argue with you on any subject, especially 
prohibition, on which he takes a firm stand. 
He still claims that the fair sex are the same the

BIGGEST state east of the Mississippi, Empire 
State of the South; peaches, perpetual sun-

has never forgotten his first love. 

Little, mighty, and also savvy, Henri will not 
allow himself to be stepped on or overlooked. 
He'll take on any man in the crowd and the 
bigger they come the harder they fall. He has 
won athletic awards in wrestling, swimming,

Dago was his only worry in the way of aca-

crowd gathered around Henri while he explained 
to them how "fruity" such and such a prob was 
and that he didn't see why anyone couldn't make 
a "forty" in such easy subjects as math and 
steam. He certainly knows his engineering sub- 
jects and should make an excellent engineer 
himself. His most glaring fault is his modesty 
and unfortunate tendency to fall in love.

SILENCE reigns over the room save for the

boned that," he says. "Wake me at two

and prepares to boresight the bunk. Who is he 
you ask ? None other than Kenneth Sydney Shook ,

has had plenty of provocation.

AFTER finally convincing the authorities of 
- central high school that he had absorbed 
the maximum amount of knowledge Danny took 
a two year respite from the text-book. Then 
behold — we found him ready to take his place 
among the great of the Navy. 

For Danny there is nothing like a good song 
and his presence has been the gain of the various 
musical organizations. Perhaps, too, with soft 
music goes sweet slumber. Any afternoon Danny 
will discard the text-book with a careless, 
"that's fruit," and proceed to assume a hori- 
zontal attitude. In his spare moments he did his 
bit in guiding the rifle team over the rocks and 
shoals, and has even tried his hand at writing. 
Being a lover of good books, Danny's one great 
desire is to become an author. Then, too, there 
was always time for the certain daily letter to 
the Quaker City, all of which means that as soon 
as possible one more name will be stricken from 
the prospective bachelor list. 

Besides being a collector of old desk blotters, 
he used the same one for four years, and but for his 
dislike of winding victrolas, Danny has been a 
great roommate. A smiling personality coupled 
with a pleasing disposition has won many 
friends for him. Whatever career you follow

Grand Rapids, Michigan 


THE great North had little more to offer Bar- 
ney by way of entertainment so he packed his 
bag and left that wilderness — called Michigan — 
to see what King Neptune had to offer for variety 
and excitement; what better place is there for a 
man with an insatiable wanderlust? 

He started off his career by upsetting accepted 
theories and proving that a plelDe could stay out 
of trouble — and that a youngster could star. 
The academic group never bothered him; he 
could, and did, salt away his share in less than 
an hour per and was always ready to pass a little 
on if you were having a little difficulty in seeing 
through the haze. 

Hardlyto be called a "snake, "nor a "red mike" 
— no, never! He mixed them both, "dragged" a 
little — stagged a little — and found a combination 
to keep him ever cheerful. 

Acquiring a hobby for aircraft, he ruined the 
disposition of his roommate to such a point that 
only the start of swimming season and a threat 
to drop both Barney and the models out of a 
fourth deck window prevented a very grave 
catastrophe indeed. 

We all agree that Barney is a good, willing 
classmate with a capacity for work and clear 
thinking that will take him far in "this man's 
Navy." He's ever ready to help you out of that 
maze of A.C. impedences, or what have you! 
How familiar is that phrase, "Sure that's fruit! 
look, it's like this ..."

OH, WHO'S that tall, dark, good looking 
midshipman!" The girls always pick him 
out of a crowd, and though he has the reputation 
of being quite a "snake," he saves all of his 
sweet dreams for the girl back home. 

He is extremely proud of his Plebe Year repu- 
tation of being the "ratiest plebe in the batt," 
but though he got away with a lot, he always 
managed to keep out of trouble, and his pranks 
made friends for him rather than enemies. 

Never greatly worried about academics, his 
love of "Cosmo," Colliers, and Saturday Evening 
Post is all that kept him from being a star man. 
But at his great love, crew, he is not satisfied 
with mediocrity. His one big regret is that he 
isn't heavy enough for the varsity boat, but the 
Varsity's loss is the 150 pounders' gain. Every 
night he came home dog tired, but more enthu- 
siastic than ever. 

He is good natured, ambitious, and although 
he proudly claims to "have a wee bit of Scotch"

is very generous. He's a real pal.

"Hank" "Ban" 

HANK hails from the progressive Midwest 
and has his own ideas concerning how the 
Navy should be run and how the members thereof 
should behave. 

Plebe Year he was prone to "bone" too much, 
and by Youngster Year he knew so much math 
that rooming with him was just slightly more 
than bearable. After that, he was quite consider- 
ate of his roommate's feelings, so that few squab- 
bles save those over records for the "vie" 
took place. 

Tennis and squash, in their respective seasons, 
took most of his spare time. The rest of the year, 
he read the New Yorker, Vanity Fair, or the 
Post, and then took time out to wonder why the 
prospective officers of the Service were not per- 
mitted to make their summer practice cruises in a 
style which matches their station. Leave fol- 
lowed or preceded these sea-going nightmares, 
so he forgave and forgot. 

At first. Hank aspired to be a Marine Officer. 
He liked their red fined cloak. He found, how- 
ever, that Marines do get killed, so he has 
decided to go back home alive, to become a 
Northwest woodsman. Nevertheless, the Navy 
still has a grip on him, and what that grip will 
do, time alone will tell.

"Santy" "Mike" " Sant" 

THERE will never be any doubt as to why 
this chap came to Annapolis and the Naval 
Academy, for his most earnest desire is to be- 
come an officer of the Navy and a good one. 
His start was all that could be desired. Entering 
the Academy early in the summer before most of 
his classmates, he was a veteran of two weeks 
service and the lordly possessor of shrunken 
white works when his roommate-to-be arrived 
on the scene, fresh from his mummy and poppy. 
Wiping away the brine he would quietly and 
patiently explain to the very young and unini- 
tiated how to get along in this man's Navy with 
the minimum amount of difficulty but yet with 
the maximum degree of efficiency. There we 
have it — that last. Santy is a mighty fine man, 
but believe it, he is efficient. Everything was 
just as it should be when he took charge, and, if 
it wasn't, it was usually the fault of that young 
innocent with whom he lived, who had again 
succumbed to the soothing call of Morpheus. 

In academics he was neither here nor there; 
but he didn't have to be, because he is oneof those 
unusual combinations of good nature and com- 
mon sense who get the news.

"Porky" "Ed" 

ONCE to every man and nation comes the 
moment to decide." Ever since the time 
Porky was a little fellow who sailed clothes 
pins in his mother's laundry tub on Monday 
mornings, his heart has been centered on a Naval 
career. He came to us via the N.A.P.C. and 
consequently had the jump on his future class- 
mates, because he learned there how to woo the 
fickle, "Miss Springfield." His greatest bid to 
glory, however, lies in the fact that he has 
never saluted a visiting taxpayer's chauffeur, 
nor saluted his section and told the D.O. to 
fall out. 

Although Ed is not to be classed as a savior, 
he has always managed to keep two jumps ahead 
of the "ac" department and never slipped when 
the track was muddy. The few light brushes he 
had with the "acs" Plebe Year seemed to have 
taught him when it was the proper time to put 
down the "Cosmo" and pick up the steam book. 

Porky's favorite indoor sport was sleeping. 
When he came from chow in the evening, he 
placed all his books around him and then would 
immediately proceed to go to sleep. He main- 
tained that the presence of the books eased 
his conscience. 

A contagious smile, a ready wit, and an enthu- 
siasm that even a math exam could not dampen 
have always held him in good standing with the 
fair sex. These same characteristics together with 
his generosity and congeniality have made him 
a real shipmate in every sense of the word.

"Penrod" " SnitT^' 

WHEN Penrod took his first bath he decided 
that he liked the water, and he came to the 
Naval Academy to be one of Uncle Sam's mid- 
dies. Everything was going along fine until one 
winter day during Second Class Year he tried to 
stop a fifty foot motor launch with a boat hook 
and took an impromptu swim. Since then his 
love for water, especially cold water, has been 
gradually diminishing. 

Snitz is one of those fellows who believes that 
there is nothing so sufficiently important to lose 
sleep over, and yet nothing too trivial to give due 
attention when necessary. His carefree nature and 
congeniality have given him a good standing 
with all who know him. A sunny disposition and 
a sense of humor make him the perpetual gloom- 
killer. The day has to be mighty rough and the 
night exceptionally stormy to make Penrod lose 
his cheery smile. An ideal roommate, especially 
when the going is tough. 

North Carolina is his home state, and he is 
proud of it. When questioned as to the particular 
merits which make this State so outstanding, he 
says, "Well, look what it sent to the Naval 
Academy." That's not conceit, gentle reader, 
just self respect. 

Anyhow — good luck!

HEY, you birds! Heard the latest 'dope?' " 
Just cover your ears, boys, and go on with

of his best quality "scuttlebutt." 

What's that in his breast pocket? Why that's 
his favorite red-and-blue pencil, Rosie's totem 
pole at the altar of the t.^. 

Outside of being a native son of Annapolis, 
his only major fault is his anxiety to become a 
"Second Looie" in the Marine Corps. He has 
made an exact science of computing his chances 
to fulfill this, his fondest dream. A most versatile 
person is Venus, competent in various lines of 
endeavor, from athletics to short story writing. 
And "nary a femme" can get a tumble from him 
since the advent of a short little girl with a big, 
long. Southern drawl. 

Seriously speaking, Venus is a top-notcher; a 
loyal classmate, an ideal roommate, and a 
pleasant companion under all circumstances. He 
likes fun, and lots of it, but when he works, he 
dissipates ergs galore. Young Roscoe will make 
gooci in spite of the elusiveness of the "Principles 
of French Grammar." 

Here's good luck and long life to you, kid!

IT IS astounding how such a small inland town 
as Norfolk could produce as mighty a seaman 
as Chalalie, but nevertheless, here he is. Most 
of his seagoing experience was gained in chasing 
muskrats up and down Weem's "Crick" in 
"Annerandel" County. The going must have 
been good as he never misses the Rule of the Road 
question on the S. and F. T. slips. 

His highest ambition is "commander le gou- 
vernail" in bringing the Fleet to anchor in 
Hampton Roads. One can easily appreciate this 
fact when he comes into the room and finds the 
table littered with mail postmarked "Norfolk, 
Va." One thing about those letters, they all bear 
the same handwriting. 

In class Buttercup shines, especially in Dago. 
"Mon commandant m'a charge' de vous pre-

son said, "Koiby, we need an Olympic shot- 
putter, how about coming out?" The boys say 
that soon he'll have the shot over in Claiborne. 

Koib is an excellent roommate in more ways

WHEN you hear weird wailings and find the

writing poetry, and he has kept us guessing 
whether he is a "snake " or a "red mike," ever

Dave takes academics seriously and is naturally

always ready for any kind of good time. Also he 
is an athlete of no mean ability. Not one of the 
outstanding stars, perhaps, but one of these hard 
workers who furnish the competition necessary 
for good teams. He plays football, swims, and 
has tried his hand at rifle. In between starring 
and athletics he also finds time for other activi-

cessful, and we all wish him the best of luck.

' 'John " " Major Flatnmeau 

TALL, dark, and handsome — but not too tall, 
not too dark, and not too handsome. That's 
Johnny. For four years he has tried, oh, so hard, 
to be a "red mike," but, as he modestly says, 
the girls just won't leave him alone. 

No one ever accused John of being a savior, 
but with a flair for anything practical and a 
sort of nonchalant Irish attitude he never both- 
ered the Academic Departments and they never 
bothered him. High finance and the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission were his forte, 
however, and any bull session with John was 
sure to get around to "what is wrong with the 
country" eventually. 

His career at the old school has been distin- 
guished not by his official accomplishments, 
although he did manage to "drag" a brace of 
stripes, but by the uncanny ability to completely 
buffalo the majority of his classmates concerning 
his desires, objects, and attainments, which is no 
mean accomplishment. In addition to this he 
almost invariably manages to have chew in his

The Major has all the makings of real officer

and the man to handle the job, no matter what 
it may be.

Columbia, Missouri 
' 'Jim " " General Motors 

WHO was the first to find a means of reliev- 
ing the depression? One guess — Jim, of 
course. Spending his Wednesday and Saturday 
afternoons combining two Model T's into one, 
he completely sold Henry on the idea, hence the 
latter's eights. At any rate, his dad's mules were 
never convenient for parking on a rainy night, 
and something had to be done to avoid another 
trip home on the "Southern." Thus are million 
dollar ideas evolved. 

Thirty-three's share of the Navy's grey matter 
didn't at all like hitching the above mentioned 
mules on the farm, so he tried Civil Engineering 
at Missouri State. There he found things so easy 
he was going broke buying "Cosmos," and 
getting some rather fanciful ideas of the sea 
from the gentle Mississippi, he decided he was 
willing to rate less than nothing, hence the Navy. 

Four years showed his true capabilities. De- 
spite his light-heartedness and devil-may-care 
attitude, his savviness earned for him the right 
to a first shot at a commission and a chance to 
say just where his own thirty knot yacht was to 
go. For future reference, consult "Who's Who."

pression of Tom. 

In the moist atmosphere of socialistic Wis- 
consin, Tom spent eight hours a day studying 
electrical engineering, ran an elevator between

"prepping" he embarked on his nautical voyage 
to knowledge, only a mere matter of 19 days in 
age, keeping him from doing the trip aboard 
the Army Mule. 

Boning was just an inevitable matter of hard 
work to him. He protested that his poor memory 
forced him to "bone" a lot, but whatever the 
cause, results were gratifying enough. Despite 
his books, each Sunday found him at Carvel with 
the requisite two-bits, borrowed if necessary, 
going over the week-end collection of femmes. 

Athletically, Tom tried swimming, boxing, 
cross country, and track, with only partial suc-

Addison, New York 
"Robbie" "Chuck" "Charlie" 

ROBBIE came to us after a year in Cornell and 
- some years in the National Guard. From 
the college he acquired some impressions on how 
an educational institution should be run, and 
from the other, many ideas on what constitutes 
a military outfit. He realized from the start that 
the educational side would have to be taken as 
is, but always tried to do his bit toward making 
this a more military institution; first with his 
platoon, Plebe Summer and First Class Year; 
second, by setting an example to others by his 
military bearing and performance at drill . 

Academics presented no unusual difficulties 
for Robbie. Any worrying on that score was 
done for his roommate. He never distinguished 
himself in athletics, although he was a fair 
baseball player and worked hard to better him- 
self. He used his knowledge of baseball, and 
sports in general, however, in writing for the 

Sunday afternoons usually found him keeping 
up the social side of life, and although he in- 
sisted that he was not a "snake," he always has 
been quite popular with the fair sex. One look 
at his curly head will probably suggest a reason 
for that. 

A desire to be always doing something for his 
betterment has kept him on the go at all times. 
It is a rare evening that finds him without some- 
thing to do, but an even rare afternoon when he 
doesn't get in the equivalent of a daily dozen.

"Tom" "T.B." " Blackie" 

AFTER "living on his own" for a couple of 


years, subsequent to graduation from the 

local school, high in the town famous as the 
home of Elbert Hubbard, Tom seized an oppor- 
tunity to become a midshipman. A few months 
spent in prepping at Garey's insured his passing 
the entrance barriers, and June 17, 192.9 found a 
large man wandering around Bancroft Hall 
enveloped in bleached white works, fragrant 
with the aroma of indelible ink, and freshly 
stenciled with the name "T. Black." 

Though he was somewhat shy as a plebe, and 
inclined to be rather in awe of anyone carrying 
gold lace on his sleeve, the advent of his own 
"diag" saw Tom develop latent self-confidence 
and an aptitude for sociability that has won for 
him universal popularity with his contemporar- 
ies in other classes as well as his own. 

A propensity for avoirdupois amidships, the 
butt of countless friendly jibes, persisted despite 
energetic efforts in cross country, crew, and field 
events, and so Tom contents himself with being 
100% Navy. Endowed with more than his share 
of good nature, Tom has never been known to be 
really angry, though not happy unless good- 
humoredly complaining about some trivial epi- 
sode in the daily routine. Absolutely imperturb- 
able and unexcitable, T.B's equanimity of dispo- 
sition bespeaks his Limey origin. 

A loyal friend and a tolerant roommate, who 
meets every complaint with a smile and with 
never a worry in the world — that's Tom.

"Fergie" "Ow Wow" 

GLOVER, when but a wee tot, happened to 
be on hand when a colored Elk parade swept 
down Main Street and became enamored with 
the idea of militarism. That resplendent spectacle 
proved Fergie's downfall; before he was old 
enough to know better he was no longer a care- 
free youth but one of the struggling mass behind 
white walls and iron gates. 

Ow Wow like a true Maryland gentleman 
dislikes work of any form, which is probably 
the reason that he is usually seen trailing along 
in the rear rank of one of those famous anchor 
sections. However, the old master seems to be 
able to just skim above the "trees" each term. 

Fergie has two hobbies — the fair sex and la- 
crosse. In the former, Baltimore seems to be his 
chosen field of endeavor and many's the deb who

GOOD Lord! That's not formation, is it? 
I'll never make it. Hand me a pair of socks, 
will you?" That's Jim — never quite ready for 
anything, but the type who always gets there, 
albeit a trifle late at times. 

The academics have never worried him for 
more than a month at a time — if one month finds 
him a little behind, the next will find him safely 
out in front again. 

Women and "D.O's" have lead him a merry 
chase but he has seldom been caught by either. 
His various loves he handles in a fashion deserv- 
ing of praise; he has never been known to miss a 
hop or a Sunday at Carvel. 

Besides his startling social assets Jim is pos-

more at home on the field than in the drawing

"Paul" " Zim" "Pup" 

IT IS indeed seldom that we have a chance at 
Paul like this. For you see he is clever at 
repartee. After being argued to a standstill, he 
settles the point in his favor by coming down 
with, "No, you are wrong — ." The sponge. 
Spike, and quick. 

Academics bothered him slightly during Plebe 
Year, but he was not long becoming acclimated, 
and found it smooth sailing the rest of the course. 
His practical mind made a "Sketch and Describe, 
question extremely simple. 

He enjoys a good time, and there has been 
scarcely a hop that it has not been necessary to 
explain to the "drag" that, "He is our own little 
German lineal descendant of the Hohenzollerns 
— our Paul, collegiate member of the Hays 
Kansas State Navy, and fusser supreme." "That 
he drags every week-end and there are few ports 
that have not been able to produce beauties to 
charm his fancies." "That he is a firm addict of 
the before breakfast skag, and a so-called stroll 
in the moonlight on the hop nights." "That, as 
a blender of foo-foo, he is a marvel, and thewhole 
Battalion knows when he shaves." 

But it is only fair to add to his growing repu- 
tation, that he is generous, good natured and a 
mighty good friend to possess. He is an all 
around good sport and makes a splendid addition 
to a party. Here's how, Paul.

Ogden, Utah 
' "Ken" "Lovely" "Babe" 

UTAH, the Rocky Mountains, and good fresh 
air — this was the environment that pro- 
duced Ken. He came to us from the wide open 
spaces where men are men, and women — well he 
admits his relations with the fairer sex may be 
summed up in the short statement, that there 
never was a girl who could turn his head or 
cause him to lose any sleep. However, we are 
proud of him for he is one of those rare excep- 
tionstothe traditions of the "saviors"— "Star and 
Stagnate." No doubt he has the ability, but 
being one of those "Good Scouts" he refuses to 
mar a sunny disposition and good nature with an 
ambition to star. 

His claims — the champion fly-caster in the 
Northwest and one of the best hunters that ever 
missed a chicken. His tales about those trips 
aren't mere fish stories either. He can wield a 
gun and pack a bag as well as the best of the old 
timers and never ask for a halt. 

But Ken is more than just a good woodman; 
he is one of the most versatile characters to be 
graduated from the Academy. He is a philosopher 
first, a poet next, and a practical man always. Ken 
is at his bestwhendrinking deep in Schopenhauer 
ordigestingToIstoy. The"Rubaiyat" is his favor- 
ite single piece of literature and Shakespeare 
his favorite author. He has tried his hand at a 
bit of writing and the first results were very 
promising. Temperament even, anything but 
talkative, and always unassuming, he retains a 
very warm spot in the hearts of all his associates. 



HuNTsviLLE, Alabama 
"Ash" "Ash ford" 

ASHFORD is one man who always has the 
- news. He can be found any morning of the 
week in the most comfortable position available, 
poring over the New York Times, "Time," or 
the home town paper. That home town is Hunts- 
ville, in sunny Alabama, from whence he gets 
his pleasant disposition, his Southern courtesy, 
and the beautiful pictures which adorn his locker 
door. He was initiated into the mysteries and 
secrets of military life at Marion Institute. 

He has a natural inclination and aptitude for 
making friends. His excellent work as plebe 
and youngster football manager and on the 
Reception Committee attest to his desire to meet 
people, to increase his acquaintances and friends 
— and to miss Saturday inspections. 

Even as his first ancestor, Adam, his great sin 
and weakness is the fairer sex. His Sunday night 
hazes, and his amazing weekly quota of dainty 
letters in ink of lightest violet to deepest green, 
have on one or two occasions necessitated a long 
month's vigil with the "ac" departments. 

Such faults as this, however, are not without 
precedent, nor indicative of anything discourag- 
ing. They all come out in the wash and Ash, 
besides being a "Regular Fellar," will make a 
good husband and a wonderful father, if the 
children leave his morning paper alone.

Washington, District of Columbia 
"Dave" "Mac" "McSquizzle" 

FATE made Dave a "Gyrene" Junior and sent 
him to the far corners of the earth but home 
to him is Washington. Western High School 
Cadet Corps gave him his first taste of military- 
discipline. Naturally enough the strains of 
"Semper Fidelis" strike a resonant chord in his 
makeup. His lifelong ambition has been to follow 
in parental footsteps to a long and distinguished 
service career. With this end in view, concen- 
trated "boning" stands him high enough in the 
class to get that commission despite Congres- 
sional economies and the depression. 

His consistently outstanding services for three 
years on Navy rifle teams have earned him the 
captaincy of the "indoor" team and a collection 
of medals that dazzle the eye and quicken the 
heart. Another of his pet ambitions is to hold 
down a position on the Marine rifle team. 

On Sunday afternoons he could be found either 
in the pool with the class swimming team or at 
Carvel tripping the light fantastic. His "snakish" 
propensities have made him a happy combination 
of Cassanova and Cyrano de Bergerac. 

Good natured and amiable, yet dignified, easy 
going but efficient; these qualities will continue 
to make him friends and a welcome mess- 
mate on many a far station.

"Stan" " Senrab" 

STAN came to us from high school in his native 
heath of the Granite State at the tender age 
of sixteen with inhibitions and a firm heart. 
Rather dazed and innocent at that stage, he is 
now adept at being a midshipman but still 
manages to be a gentleman and is liked for it. 

Ever since Plebe Year, he has dabbled in 
sports, being a willing "palooka" at a variety of 
manly arts. Most anytime he could be found either 
working out in the gym or banging away on the 
old piano in the music room. An omniverous 
reader, he is subject to seizures of literary crea- 
tion which found him contributing short stories 
and political articles to the Trident and the Log. 

He went on Sunday to Carvel Hall and sat 
among the ladies. He claims to be a "red mike," 
but there are those who know better. 

Highly imaginative and spasmodically ambi- 
tious, he has hitched his wagon to a star. "A 
man's reach should ever exceed his grasp or 
what's a heaven for." His philosophy of life is 
a happy one. It will make him friends and a suc- 
cess whether in the Service or on the outside.

- Benny Leonard's War College that came 
in so handy later on, Sarge warped himself into 
a berth at the Naval Academy and proceeded to 
make himself fast. He had come to stay and stay 
he did. 

It seems that two seasons of cross country 
and one season of 150 pound crew constitute 
Ski's claim to fame in the athletic line. Rain or 
shine, every Sunday afternoon of First Class 
Year found him on the golf course batting out 
his usual 99. Sarge held his own for the first two 
years in academics but when nav came along he 
went on the shoals high and dry. He's in deep 
water now but rather the worse for wear. 

"Say, Sarge, will you drag for me?" "Sure 
thing, what time?" One might have gotten the 
idea that Ski was fickle when it came to women. 
Perish the thought. He always insisted that the 
soft spot in his heart was for one woman and 
one woman only. 

Sarge was in his element in a "juice" practical 
work. He invariably finished an hour early and 
was always ready to lend a helping hand to 
anybody in need. 

Best of luck. Ski.

"Bung" "Eddie" 

THE metropolis of Putnam, Connecticut, lost 
the best or its three thousand odd males when 
Eddie heeded the call of the blue water. Eight 
months of Werntz's War College failed to damage 
our hero's ardor, and four years at Uncle Sam's 
Naval Nursery only served to increase his enthu- 
siasm for things nautical. 

Eddie is one of those unusual mortals who can 
adapt himself to any situation. While not being a 
star man in any particular line, he has never 
been known to go "unsat" in anything he ever 
tackled, as his academic and athletic record 
proves. The feminine side of life is a seamy side 
for Eddie. "Brick" or "forty," come what may, 
Eddie loves them all. 

In choosing his career, our hero made the only 
mistake of his four years' picnic at the Naval 
Academy. He wants to bean aviator, and, what's 
more, he wants to fly for the Marines. Nicaragua 
and points south will breathe easier when Eddie 
dons the globe and anchor in the ranks of those 
who invariably have the situation well in hand.

AFTER spending four stormy high school years 
- Aldrich's typical "bad boy" became more

departure ushered in a peace and quiet hitherto 
unknown in the quaint little town of Millville. 
George's Academy career has been a well 
rounded one. Academics were never a source of 
worry. As for girls, they were just not to be 
taken seriously. In spite of his small stature he 
has been active in athletics. Football, boxing, 
and lacrosse claimed his time. After Youngster 
Year, however, environment proved stronger 
than heredity and he absorbed a certain amount 
of Southern laziness. Second Class Year, Tubby 
joined Marconi, Steinmetz, and Ampere Pete 
in the study of radio. Any afternoon would find 
him struggling over a maze of wire and tubes, 
armed with soldering iron and wire. It might be 
added that no bull session was complete without 
Marshall. He would talk and argue about any- 
thing from politics to the philosophy of life. 

George has an amiable disposition and a very 
likeable personality which make it a pleasure 
to be with him. He is always ready to take part 
in anything that is suggested. He is a true com- 

E anion and his friendship is valued by all who

Charlie " " Tartan " "Banjo" 

IN THE distant hills of Tennessee, where a

and grew and from its very depths came Charles; 
a son of the South always ready to uphold the 
rights of the Confederacy and the Southern 

He had spent four successful years in high 
school and entered the Academy younger than 
the majority. He caught on quickly and after 
proving to himself he was at least all the

self and became "one of the boys." 

Charlie is quiet but is always ready to try 
something and to take a chance, a favor is done 
for the asking, and he puts his family before 
everything. He is very dependable and exact. 
Picking out his bad spots one can only say he 
smokes too many cigarettes and gets too many 
letters from a certain somebody who must have 
that certain something. 

Winter days found Charlie working in the

"Marcel" "Stub" "Poncho" 

THOUGH Frank spent four years with us, he 
is said to have completed the course in three; 
for surely he passed at least one of those four 
years sleeping. In spite of this, he had time 
enough to get his lessons and compete in more 
than his share of athletic events. Perhaps this 
was because he had little time for girls regardless 
of the fact that he lived next door to Smith 
College for Women. Seldom did he "drag," and 
then only for some pleading friend. 

It was not surprising that he should be 
called upon for such duties, as he is always full 
of life and a fine sport about anything suggested. 
Because of his good nature and versatility; for he 
can do almost anything from playing a sax to 
tossing a lacrosse ball around — he was very 
popular with the Midshipmen. Though a stal-

A LUST for travel and adventure from his 
earliest childhood days was genuine evi-

The paths open to him were many and varied 
for he was versatile and eager, but, when the 
opportunity to enter the Naval Academy crossed 
his path, he sensed his calling. 

Experience? That Fryman had not wasted his 
youth in Hollywood was evidenced by the envi- 
ous display of autographed photos on his 
locker door. His achievements in the East did 
not fall short of his former records and he soon 
became a social lion. There was no social event 
of importance that escaped his attention and his 
position could be disputed by no one. His 
activities were also devoted to athletics, and 
his success was equally as great on the field as on 
the ballroom floor. 

In spite of the fact that Porter found himself 
at home everywhere, the urge to return to the 
land of grapefruit was so strong that September 
Leave found him breaking transcontinental

To sell him California was like asking him to

in whatever he might undertake.

A PRODUCT of the "Ploating University" 
(Crabtown branch) is not easily stopped or 
even baffled by situations encountered in the 
day's run, so when the time came, that June so 
long ago, Sam calmly over-rode all resistance 
offered and proceeded to make himself at home 
within these cold grey walls. 

Two years at Lafayette had given him a 
good foundation, and so he avoided much of the 
slugging administered by the Academic Depart- 
ments. Not satisfied with math, steam, and the 
other little things which make Youngster Year 
so pleasant, Sam took up Russian and German 
as a side line. His hair showed the strain before 
anything else and proceeded to change its color 
with alarming rapidity — first red, then blonde, 
and finally taking on a greenish tinge. He 
attributed this to the rusty showers in the Boat- 
house, but we still have our doubts. 

Realizing Plebe Year what a good graft a 
seat on a training table is, Sam decided he was 
missing something and at once applied himself to 
athletics with a vengeance, taking soccer, swim- 
ming, and lacrosse in his stride. 

Always ready to stand your watch, come 
through with the needed amount, or to drag 
blind for you, he is — do I hear "easy?" No, a

JACK claims to be a native son, hailing from

making the places he has called home read like a 
railroad time table: New York; Ames, Iowa; 
Fontana, Marysville, Trona, and Berkeley, Cali- 
fornia; Wilmington, Delaware; and lastly, our 
own Crabtown. 

Jack has confined his athletic activities to 
boxing. He is a clarinetist in the orchestra and 
has been known to drop into the Radio Club. 
Youngster Year found him building a model 
aeroplane during Dago study periods. On the 
first flight, however, the plane crashed beyond 
repair, and then Jack hit no more Dago trees. He 
has a passion for sailing in a stifle breeze with 
the keel out of water. In fact running aground 
and submerging the boat are all in a good after- 
noon's sail for Jack. 

As a "red mike," he is an utter failure; it's the 
curly hair and smooth manners — hence the nick-

"Jess" "Billy" "J" 

IT WAS during the second of two years spent at 
V. M. I. that Jess heard the call of the sea. 
Not only did he hear it but he heeded it as well. 
Consequently June found him coming in the gate 
as a new plebe. However, the Army's loss was 
our gain for they gave us a mighty fine classmate. 

Studies, math and steam in particular, has Jess 
on the ropes at times during Plebe and Youngster 
Years but since then he has had clear sailing. 
"Get your velvet the first two months and then 
secure," is the way our Alabama boy looked at 
these academics. He did take the juice depart- 
ment for a ride though 'cause what Billy can do 
to a radio is nobody's business. 

As a roommate he is fine. He always has plenty 
of skags, a ready smile and willing spirit to do 
anything to help a fellow. 

■The ladies are not his weakness by any means 
but it has been rumored around that he does en- 
joy their company occasionally. They can't seem 
to leave him alone, what with that Southern 
manner and all, he is just well nigh irresistable. 

Afloat or ashore Jess will always be remem- 
bered as a true friend and shipmate.

WILD mustangs, heads held high, necks

seems to foster such animals. Yep, I said "anim-

love for any kind of play, could emanate only 
from a healthy bodied animal. He has never yet 
missed being in the midst of any organization 
designed for the demolition of some poor devil's

receives no sacrilege from him during any lull — 
and often when there isn't a lull. Four bunks has

him at Teel's successfully preparing to beat the 
other Florida lads on a competitive exam for an 

Once here Herman distinguished himself by 
preceding the Regiment into the stands at a 
Philadelphia football game. From then on fame 
was assured. 

Enter the gent from next door, "Hey, Herman, 
how do you do this juice?" Herman— "This times 
this divide by that, voila." "Okay, thanks." 
Hoim — "By the way, what is the assignment in 
that stuff?" 

In '31 a Red Mike Society was formed with 
Herman as a charter member. Shortly afterwards 
he was summarily dismissed from it. Investiga- 
tion proved a regular correspondence with some 
six girls had been running concurrently. Hail, 
Don Juan Casanova Purdy! 

Winter of Plebe Year found him out for box- 
ing; after a week of battles with other lumina- 
ries he used to "come out fighting" at reveille 
and regularly made his bed on Saturday morn- 
ings. Being versatile, he also played soccer but 
sickness Youngster Year hampered that, and so 
his forte is scrapping. 

In the fleet, shipmates will find him a pleasant 
friend in fair weather and an essential ally when 
the going is not smooth, but with a ready grin 
when one is in order. Caveat emptor!

"Tom" "Blackstein" "Thomas" 

EARLY in Plebe Summer Tom blew in, lay 
down on the nearest bed, and said, "When 
do we eat?" His philosophy of life has not 
changed. Never stand up when you can sit down 
is his motto, and he has thrived on it. 

Academics were only a nuisance to Blackstein, 
and he joyously took them in his stride for four 
carefree years. 

As a candidate at Teel's War College in his 
youth he found out what a soccer ball was for, 
and in the fall he was usually to be found on 
Lawrence Field in pursuit of one. 

Due to a never ceasing flow of good humor and 
a seemingly endless supply of skags, Tom was a 
welcome addition to any after-chow bull session. 
He was at home in any company, even on the 
bathing beach at Cherbourg and among the 
brighter stars of Hamburg's gay whirl. 

Blackstein always left the fair sex alone — 
generally speaking, but they never saw eye to 
eye with him in the matter, and hops were a 
succession of duels from which he nonchalantly 
emerged victorious. 

Ambition? Sure! He wants a dog and an aero- 
plane, plenty of gas and a bone for the dog, a real 
man's man. Known to the trade as"what-a-man " 
Blackstein, the grand old man of Hop Scotch.

"Van" "Bill" "Deers layer" 

AFTER absorbing the knowledge offered by 
- the local centers of learning, Van began 
looking for a more interesting career. His ambi- 
tion soon pointed toward Uncle Sam's Naval 
Academy, and it wasn't long before we found 
him here among the rest of us doing his bit to 
make the old class of '33 the best ever. 

Being tall, dark, and with the black wavy hair 
that seems to be so popular with the fairer sex, 
he soon gained the nickname of "Deerslayer" 
when our "brothers in arms" of '30 returned in 
September. After Plebe Year the name disap- 
peared, and Van and Bill became his permanent 
cognomens. From the beginning his interests 
seemed to lead to tennis and fencing. 

His affairs with the fairer sex have always been 
a secret and many would like to know whether 
he belongs to the Academy class of "snakes" or 
"red mikes." That is one of those unsolvable 

His hobbies are numerous; reading, sport, and 
practical craftsmanship being the most out- 
standing; anything to be busy. 

Whether Van seeks his career in the Navy or 
on the outside, he will be one of those at the top.

"Bunky" "Art" "Oiseau" 

HERE is a man who will dedicate his dying 
breath to the praise of the Middle West. If 
every congressman from "God's own country" 
were as loyal to his constituents as Bunky is to 
his own State, the farmers would assume the 
responsibility for industrial relief during times 
of business depression. 

In spite of his tales of sky-high corn, grass- 
hoppers, and Kansas cyclones, he's a good scout, 
with the true sailor's eye for women. Like the 
Grand Dieu, he loves them all. 

Anyone who wants the latest scuttlebutt on 
any conceivable subject will do well to see this 
man. If he hasn't got it, which is seldom the 
case, he can hash up something pretty good on a 
minute's notice. 

Bunky can hold his own with the best of them 
in a Cosmopolitan or College Humor recitation, 
both of which magazines he bones assiduously 
when ordinary men are immersed in academics. 
He always has time for a skag and a bull-session 
with anyone of his numerous friends who may 
happen to drop in for the same. When he studies 
is a mystery, even to his roommate. 

His hobbies are solitaire, company soccer, 
political science, and the breaking of all existing 
records for driving home during leave periods.

OsKALoosA, Iowa 

' 'Jack' ' 

HERE we have a venturesome sort of lad who 
dared turn Horace Greeley's advice one 
hundred and eighty degrees out of phase. Having 
heard of a sailoring school on the Severn, he gave 
up a brilliant civilian career in order that his 
country might be benefited by the services of 
another fine officer. 

He was graduated from Oskaloosa High School 
with high honors. He immediately substantiated 
his scholastic ability by taking a death grip on 
Tecumseh's scalp — a hold that has been main- 
tained with the tenaciousness of a bull dog. 

Not being content with scholastic honors, he 
has sought new fields of conquest, and his trail 
leads to the Log office. 

His thoughts and actions mark him a gentle- 
man and a scholar. His wit, his humor, his cheer- 
ful smile, his ever ready willingness to lend a 
helping hand, have made us all think highly of 
this fair haired, blue-eyed boy from the "Hawk- 
eye State." He is quite a connoisseur of the fairer 
sex but insists that he prefers brunettes. 

He has his peculiarities even as the best of us. 
His passion for playing the same record over and 
over is undying. His stacks of fan mail are a won- 
der to see. 

We can only say, "bon voyage" to a real class- 
mate and friend.

"Wig" "Wiggy" 

HAPPY-GO-LUCKY, devil-may-care! Be- 
neath the surface, though, are the better 
and finer qualities which show up more as you 
get to know him. Climbing inside of brass but- 
tons and sitting with the blue section at an 
Army-Navy football game seems to have been 
his boyhood ambition. Yes, he is satisfied in that 
respect but he has endowed himself with newer 
and greater ones. 

Song, we may say, is his forte. As Glee Club 
number and chorister, he has been an asset to the 
regiment. Though not a star man, he has learned 
to throw chalk with the best of them. 

A novel, a skag, a place to assume a horizontal 
or semi-horizontal position and one has an ap- 
propriate background for a portrait study of 
Bruce. He is naturally gifted with a paramount 
weakness — that of cooing sweet nothings in the 
ears of the fairer sex. 

Stacking clothes and books on the table and 
studying through the evenings with a cap on 
seems to bring him untold pleasures. At the men- 
tion of a good time he immediately chimes in, 
"Where's the party?" and he is often the life of

His field of activity is the roads of the world 
and his ultimate destination the Asiatics — Well,

"Dutch" "Count" 

GOING to town tonight" is generally his 
cheery greeting to those who join him in 
many midnight escapades. Plebe Year was a suc- 
cession of broken femmes' hearts and letters from 
the Superintendent. Youngster cruise found him 
an old salt with a strong line and a girl in every 
port. It was also on this cruise that he gained 
quite a reputation and almost his dismissal by 
throwing a bucket of water on an officer. Young- 
ster Christmas proved his downfall as he has 
broken no more hearts but deemed it necessary 
to be non-reg, to remain true and see as much as 

fiossible the O.A.O. whose picture graces his 
ocker door. Always prepared with some good 
story and a ready smile he has an uncanny way 
of getting out of scrapes, for which he has earned 
the name of "Dutch." "Count" is short for no- 

His success in crew during Second Class Year 
gained him the reputation as being the smoothest 
oarsman on the river. His name is always in 
print, either on the pap sheet or on the trees. 
However, his only worry is when the next letter 
from the babe is coming. His travel conquests 
consist of a hobo trip via airplane to California 
and back the summer the good old "Arky" 
broke down. 

I believe the future will be kind to him. Be- 
sides the long desired sheepskin in June '33 a

Church Around The Corner" and he'll be one of 
the leading characters.

I'M a tar heel born, I'm a tar heel bred, and 
when I die there'll be a tar heel dead." They 
chased him out of North Carolina; so Ralph was 
exposed to studies for two years at Tennessee. 
The girls down there must have been pretty good 
because this little rebel sure did show a few good 
tricks in wrestling to win a varsity berth and the 
sobriquet "Grits," which incidentally is not 
related in any way to a breakfast food. 

When his O.A.O. sent him her marriage an- 
nouncement Youngster Year, he turned "Red 
Mike." It didn't last long, though, because he's 
been borrowing quarters to go to Carvel for some 
time now. Ralphy is a discriminate smoker, that 
is he only smokes for effect. When with the 
girls, he flashes cork tipped skags, and they all 
wonder how he does it on a midshipman's pay. 
Here's the secret, he collects them at the Super- 
intendent's receptions. Every night the lovelorn 
gather in his room seeking advice upon matter 
most dear to the heart. Whenever anyone goes 
around with a shotgun looking for Rudy Vallee, 
somebody has to tell him that it is only Styles 
exercising his vocal chords. 

If the Navy doesn't know how to tell a good 
officer when they have one, the legal profession 
will add another "liaryer" to their already starv- 
ing midst. After spending four years in intimate 
contact with midshipmen from all sections of the 
country, "Grits" still claims indisputable su- 
premacy for the South as regards to fast horses 
and beautiful women.

"Maire" "Mat" "Mary" 

SINCE Marie was a rollicking babe in rompers 
pushing a toy boat in the Passaic River, he 
has shown a desire to follow the sea. So anxious 
was he to answer this calling that he was sum- 
mering at the Naval Academy (better known as 
Plebe Summer) while his high school class back 
in Paterson was attending graduation exercises. 

While at the Academy, Mat belonged to what 
is recognized as the struggling majority. Many 
a morning did he get up before reveille to solve 
some intricate probs in math that required more 
than the alloted evening study period. However, 
during Second Class Year the anchor section re- 
ceived Mary only when his thoughts wandered 
too far in the realm of travel and adventure in 
strange lands. His only vice is cleanliness. Pity 
his poor over burdened wife when Marie's call to 
man the brooms overcame the former's desire 
to snatch a few minutes of caulking before the 
first period class. And his pet theory is, "Why 
break the rules of the Academy where it takes 
less energy to follow the straight and narrow." 
He is very fond of good music (the Red Seal 
type) and receives maximum enjoyment from 
Kipling's verses. 

Marie, as a midshipman, has developed many 
admirable traits, which, when carried on to the 
Fleet, will without doubt produce the excellent 
results he has achieved during his Academy days.

Academics were never a real source of worry

deeply concerned with those powerful but exact

True to his idea of life, women were nothing to 
worry about. However, to call him a "Red

UP from the South, Georgia to be exact, came 
Pee Dee bent on new conquests, after first

He is always ready for a debate, especially 
where one brings up the subject of Georgia or the 
Democratic party and many non-Georgians and 
Republicans have gone down in dismal defeat 
on account of his clever repartee. There never

DICK'S first great achievement was to pass the 
entrance exams, to the surprise of his prep- 
school classmates and especially his professors; 
and his next was to stay sat by occasional bon- 
ing. In the line of academics his ambition was to 
be in the first steam section, thus showing his 
superiority in the mechanical world — and his 
ordeal w^as bull. He dislikes anything that is 
literary, simply because it doesn't go with his 

5 tactical nature. The "literary end" of the aca- 
emics had to be reckoned with, however, and 
consequently the "common sense" element was 
of little help in the academic line in getting a 
higher class standing. 

Aside from the academics, Dick is a man of 
many interests and varied hobbies — automobiles, 
steam engines, model boats, and engines, work- 
ing in the steam building, tinkering with clocks,

YO, Rum," and someone else drops in on 
Rumble to enlist aid or advice upon some

whatever the subject may be, Plebe math, Second

to help the wayward or the blind. Suffice it to 
say that he is among that group of intellectual 
giants or perverted genii known as "savoirs." 

Great as is his delight in boning, even greater 
still is his pleasure in trifling. A good portion of 
his spare moments are consequently spent with 
the 0-2-GC, that group of lovers of leisure and 
spurners of labor. 

Henri could not be accused of loafing, how- 
ever. The duties of a football manager kept him 
rather busy Plebe and Youngster Years. He was 
prominent among the "crab-catchers" for a 
while, too, until he heard the maxim, "Paddle 
your own canoe." That could hardly be recon- 
ciled to the customs of crew; subsequently he has 
cultivated universality in all sports, even the 
pleasant pastime of walking. 

Horsepower has been accused of being a mis- 
ogynist, but decision has never been rendered. 
His "dragging" has usually run to large num- 
bers, such as conventions of school teachers and 
other charming visitors, although Second Class 
Summer proved the exception — He has held his 
head high since.

THE Little town of Nutley (says Joe, "It's

After wasting a year or two running A. & P. 
grocery stores and running in Wall Street he 
decided in favor of the Blue and Gold and, inas- 
much as Cameo's efforts are exasperatingly few 
and far between, when he does bestir himself, he 
usually accomplishes things faster than most 

He has taken active part in Log work and, as 
Second Batt representative, kept the plebes busy 
writing jokes which were collected by his num- 
erous staff. He much prefers the Post or "Cosmo" 
to text-books, yet managed to turn in high 
marks in every thing. After deciding French too 
easy he changed to Italian and caused his inti- 
mates undue suffering while he spouted. He 
varied this by abominably raucous renditions 
of any and all songs and on occasion composes 
and recites poetry equally bad. 

Norm's loves are many and desperate, yet fail 
to leave him with any visible scars, whereas his 
wake is strewn carelessly with broken hearts. 
He attends all hops and social functions faith- 
fully, often spending his (or anyone's) last

himself away from the DeMolay hops and the 
local belles — but two appointments exerted the 
necessary pressure. 

Since his arrival in Crabtown , Schadie has never 
been a "Red Mike" for more than two weeks 
at a stretch, and many were the dodges he in- 
vented during Plebe Year to elude the upper-

ever since, and has maintained an average almost 
passing in spite of being blind-bricked once or 

As a handy complementary activity, each 
afternoon of the long winter season finds him 
grappling, twisting, and usually pinning some- 
one under the eye of Coach Schultz. During the 
offseason, Arn is never found parked against the 
radiators afternoons except during exam week. 
It may be too windy for tennis, too wet for base- 
ball, or too hot for touch football, but if it is

at everything.

"Pete" "Piccolo" 

PETE was born in the fair city of Baltimore but 
soon graduated to Washington. After com- 
pleting school there he went to New York for 
finished touches. He came to Annapolis looking 
for adventure. 

Piccolo doesn't care for the raditor club. He 
much prefers trying to burn up our perfectly good 
track, to chase a little ball around and get kicked 
in the shins. 

He possess an amazing ability for learning the 
intricacies of Naval Engineering by boning Vol- 
taire or Schopenhauer. You will find him reading 
some deep treatise, wearing an air of almost pain- 
ful and disapproving dignity, when there's a 
"Hey, Piccolo!" as someone opens the door. His 
dignity falls away completely, and our Pete is 
suddenly a mass of concentrated merriment with 
a cherubic smile and mischievously twinkling 

A "red mike" by choice, he occasionally 
astonishes us by "dragging." His drags prove he

He has amazing determination, ability to 
quickly analyze situations and make decisions, 
and abundant store of common sense, a total lack 
of conceit, and inborn consideration for his fel- 
lows, and a disarming smile. What more could 
one desire?

CLARENCE CALDWELL, better known as 
"Swifty," hails from the aristocratic state 
of Georgia and is proud of it. If you don't believe 
it, drop around sometime and talk to him. A 
Southerner through and through and as to who 
won the Civil War, he can prove it to anyone. 

He is decidedly a "snake" and, oh, how they 
love him. He absolutely fights them off, but 
who can resist his charm! Besides he's from the 
glorious South, where men are men and women 
love them. However, there is one who receives 
the bulk of his affections. 

Although, of above the average athletic ability, 
the call of the fairer sex and liberty in Crabtown 
conquered the athletic urge, and Swifty joined 
the Radiator Club to spend most of his after- 
noons buried in a book. At almost any odd mo- 
ment he can be found absorbed in the contents 
of the latest Cosmopolitan. 

Swifty is an extremely likable chap with a 
contagious smile, a sense of humor, and a love 
of a good time. However, he has his serious 
moments during which he meditates on the cares 
of the world. His smile and personality leave 
nothing to be desired. 

As a roommate, it is a pleasure to live with

' 'Clayt' ' 

I KNOW, but out in Washington — ," — it's no 
use attempting to keep up when you hear these 
words. Might as well start by pushing over 
Mt. Rainier as to try to convince Clayt that any- 
where else in the United States compares with 
his Northwest. 

A determination to live his own life, in his own 
way that was probably inspired by the wide open 
spaces out West caused him to pass a rather turbu- 
lent Plebe Year. He adjusted himself to his new 
surroundings, however, not at the expense of his 
individualistic traits but by an acquired ease of 
handling each new situation as it arose. 

An inveterate love of reading books or writing 
to "drags" together with a dislike of losing any 
more sleep than absolutely necessary caused Clayt 
to take academics lightly. If the Academy pos- 
sessed a debate team, he would be in his element 
as he is at home in any discussion and is able to 
talk himself into and out of a situation with 
equal facility. 

He makes but few friends but these are very 
close ones. A versatility of manner and a stead- 
fastness of purpose will help him to render a good 
account of himself in his future career. 



Eau Claire, Wisconsin 

IT WAS not easy for Red to break away from 
his hunting rifle in the backwoods of the 
Badger State to delve into the mysteries of 
larger ordnance for Uncle Sam. A half year at 
the University of Wisconsin helped him to 
escape the snares of the academic departments, 
and made Plebe Year more enjoyable. 

Red is a quiet, even-tempered youth who fitted 
easily and naturally into the Academy life. He 
was liked at first sight by his classmates, and 
with time, that regard has deepened to one of 
respect and admiration. Always generous, he has 
made his path easy by a sympathetic understand- 
ing of his companions. 

Red is a natural athlete. A remarkable faith- 
fulness in turning out practically every night of 
the academic year won for him a place on the 
"A" squads in football, basketball, and track. 

We know the determination he has dis- 
played in his life at the Academy will make 
him a true Navy man.

KEITH comes from the valley of the Missis- 
sippi where he learned from the Father of 
Waters to take life as it is served. When it's 
good he grins without boasting; when it's tough 
he smiles without complaining. 

Having taken all the honors at his local high 
school, he had but to ask his Senator for an 
appointment and his naval career was underway. 

At the Academy he encountered a few aca- 
demic storms Plebe Year; each year thereafter he 
has beaten the red book with increasing ease. 

Outside of classes Keith's ability has mani- 
fested itself: in the steam shops where his manual 
productions have been the envy of all; in the 
wrestling loft where he was a strong threat for 
varsity honors; in the pistol gallery where he 
was among the peers. 

Keith is quiet and never complains, he does 
his every duty without delay and seldom wastes 
time with the radiator philosophers. Inde- 
pendent and dependable, of few words but strong 
in his convictions, conscientious, and efficient, 
but above all he is loyal to his morals, to his 
duties, and to his friends. He has never been 
heard to utter one profane word. These character- 
istics, simply phrased but true, have won for 
Keith many friends who are proud to say, "He 
is a classmate."

"Ktngfish" "Sid" 

NOW tell me his real name!" This remark is 
invariably forthcoming from some fair 
member of the unfair sex at her first meeting 
with Sid. And, rightly enough, indicating her 
interest in the owner of that good old Missis- 
sippi delta name. Such interest, once aroused, is 
seldom disappointed. 

Always on the business end of whatever is 
going on — except major and minor caliber ord- 
nance — Sid is among those who manage to stay 
on the right side of the powers-that-be. Not 
wooden, not savvy; he is always cheerfully ad- 
mitted to any of our anchor sections. 

His range of action is apparently without 
bounds. Academics, wrestling, football, all 
failed to hold him down. His outside interests 
are also unlimited; they ranged from Maine to 
the West Indies and points West. 

Wherever the "whichness of what" is seri- 
ously debated, Sid is there with his pros and cons 
expressed with characteristic candor. 

Sid might make you sore at times; his "you 
heard me!" may seem unnecessary; he might 
even use his sextant to determine the line of 
demarcation under the droplight; but, in the 
long run, when you've really known him, you'll 
find that he's far ahead of you on the credit 
side of life's ledger.

ON AUGUST -lG, 192.9, Alabama entrusted to 
the care of a multitude of steam profs. Dago 
fiends, and D.O's, one of her favorite sons. In 
spite of this opposition Jack soon proved that 
he could find time for the Cosmo and still not 
have to worry about being "sat." Missing most 
of Plebe Summer meant nothing to him; within a 
week he was in step with classmates who had 
been at the Academy since June. 

Fate has smiled with more indulgence upon 
many less deserving sons. Two months in the 
hospital Plebe Year made things a bit tough for a 
while; he came through smiling. Then Second 
Class Summer a twisted ankle robbed the base- 
ball team of a very promising candidate. Unable 
to pursue this favorite sport, he turned to another 
at which he was no less skillful, tennis; but even 
that had to be given up for a time. Versatility 
proved its worth; in a violin he found diversion 
for himself and entertainment for those about 
him. Serious and a dreamer, this Jack. 

But there is another side; one doesn't dream 
long in an atmosphere of feverish activity. 
Ready at any time to enter into a discussion on 
any current topic and always a willing fourth at 
bridge, one can understand the disappointed, 
"Where's Jack?" on the lips of those who find 
him absent. Often it's a visit to see if he has read 
this, and if it's good, could it be borrowed for a

but they haven't softened him.

FOUR years ago, John heard the call of the sea 
and as a result, the summer of 1919 found him 
embarking on his naval career. 

With the beginning of the Plebe Year, John 
soon showed that he had no fear of the Academic 
Departments, quickly establishing the fact that 
"trees" were an unknown quantity to him. 
Full of energy always, no job was too hard to 
tackle and when work was to be done it was 
done with a smile, — none of this putting things 
off until tomorrow. Being a practical minded 
fellow, John could make any problem seem 
simple, no matter whether it was the intricate 
workings of some "steam" problem or some 
fathomless problem in "juice." John's high 
standing in his class shows this fact to be true 
and that he is well termed a "savior." 

Plebe Year, John found that crew was his 
favorite pastime and he found little time to 
devote to any other sport. Forsaking the duties 
of a crew manager Youngster Year, finding them 
far too tame, he began working for one of those 
coveted places in the lightweight boat. Second 
Class Year found him realizing this ambition. 

Always full of energy; never gloomy; having a 
cheerful outlook towards life; always willing to 
lend a helping hand to anyone — these qualities 
have made John many friends and we all wish 
him the best of luck.

LUCKILY for us Mac's sojourn, "up the river" 
i was entirely arbitrary. Thus was he able to 
shift berths when he heard the call of the sea, 
to join our motley crew during that memorable 
summer of '19 and since then proceeding to take 
everything the Navy had to offer in his stride. 

Academics have been only incidental to Mac 
during the last four years — he will assure you 
at any time that he knows his Dago. Instead of 
boning constantly he took advantage of the 
opportunities offered and developed the art of 
after-dinner napping to the nth degree — an 
acquirement that he expects will mean much to 
him throughout his naval career. 

During his waking hours Mac plays water 
polo and causes the best of them to have mo- 
ments of despair. But he is not always blood- 
thirsty; a fast game of squash or tennis will 
serve to satisfy him. 

The fair sex succumbed as completely as we 
did to Mac's many attractions. Week-ends are a 
busy time for him and despite numerous compli- 
cations he always manages to "get the situation 
well in hand." 

We have all profited by knowing Mac and it is

HERE'S Ernie, another son of the South, prob- 
ably thinking or talking of dear old 
"N'Orlins" this very minute. In his academic 
career, Lee has been outstanding in every field. 
As an excellent company commander, he has 
handled a hard job well and, being close to the 
top scholastically, he easily found time for 
numerous activities. A glance at the list of his 
accomplishments in so many different organi- 
zations will verify the fact that Ernest Lee's 
energy and ability have played their part in our 
last four years. In athletics, too, he has shone, 
having put in some excellent seasons as one of 
the best of our mermen. 

Ernie has a keen sense of humor and, with his 
own ways of expressing his own ideas, he has 
been found in the center of many a stormy "bull 
session." Neither "snake" nor "red mike," he's 
hard to figure out, showing signs of being both 
and keeping us all guessing most of the time. 

Admired by a host of true friends, Lee has been 
an outstanding classmate. An idealist, if ever 
there was one, he has seen many of his objectives 
obtained so far, and the future holds as much and 
more for him. "The man most likely to succeed" 
is an old expression and a trite one, but, of them 
all, it best fits Ernest Lee.

A SEAGOING son of a seagoing family — that's

achieved recognized success in the same way. A 
month of Plebe Year showed him that academics 
were interesting, but easy, and he has been a star 
man ever since. Any old night, when the energy 
emanating from two thousand brains at work 
pervaded Bancroft Hall you could find him read- 
ing the New Yorker. If someone came in "to get 
the dope, ' ' he was there with a smile and made it 
sound easy in a couple of minutes. 

On the lacrosse field, he was always in the 
middle of the fray, streaking off now and again 
to make a timely goal. He tried swimming, made 
a success of it, then decided it was too cold. 
Tom likes his comfort. 

Versatility describes him for what he does — 
an athlete, scholar, "snake," regimental three 
striper; the respect he commands is an ideal 
criterion of the man he is. He has good-natured-

the magic power of making and keeping friends. 
Confidence compatible with his ability, yet 
withal, just one of the boys — a regular fellow.

TWO ambitions — to become a good naval 
officer and to be an Olympic track champion. 
The realization of the first of these was well on 
its way the day he joined the Sea Scouts up in 
St. Joe. AH his efforts since then, here at the 
Academy have been to further that ambition. 
As for the second, he was the first man in '33 
to wear a Navy "N," breaking the cross country 
record scarcely six weeks after launching into 
Plebe Year. Since then his track fame has spread 
far and wide throughout the track world. The 
summer of '32. provided the chance to realize his 
second ambition and he very nearly made good. 
He has never been troubled by academics and 
thought it a disgrace to be in the fourth section. 
He was not afraid to "bone" to better his class 

If not fighting with you, he certainly was not 
fighting against you. He has a tendency to bor- 
row things, especially stamps. Take him all in 
all, he is a staunch friend and a bearable room- 
mate with a high sense of fairness and duty. It is 
predicted that he will make some "Navy Jr." a 
good husband some day.

"Dutch" "Frank" "Iffy" 

THE C. B. and Q. Railroad lost a good section- 
hand when Frank hauled his freight to Hall's 
War College to prepare for a strenuous naval 
career. The gallons of midnight oil which he 
burned in Columbia, Missouri, gained him an 
appointment to the ' ' Severn River Naval School , ' ' 
and a well-nigh perfect physique got him past 
the all seeing eyes of the medical examiners in 
fine style. His introduction to Plebe Summer left 
him in a daze, but soon he learned the art of man- 
handling Miss Springfield and pulling an oar. 

Plebe Year found the Class of 1930 and the 
Steam Department riding him constantly. Nei- 
ther of them managed to get the best of him, 
however. He earned numerals in baseball, and 
also tried his hand at football, crew, and wrest- 
ling. On Youngster Cruise, he divided his time 
between breaking feminine hearts in the various 
ports of call, and winning an "E" for number five 
turret on the Arkansas. Two brushes with the 
Executive Department later in Youngster Year 
allowed him to increase his cruise service by two 
months, this time on the Reina Mercedes. 

Although normally a cynic on the subject of 
women, he manages to give them an occasional 
break. He is quite firm in his opinions, once they 
are formed. He is neither ' 'greasy' ' nor ' 'non-reg, 
and those who know him well find a congenial 
and true friend.

IT WAS no unusual occurrence at about fifteen 
minutes after study hour had started to hear 
the door open, look up, and find its space ade- 
quately filled by a tall broad shouldered indi- 
vidual with a "non-reg" cap on the back of his 
head. He would then propound all the latest 
dope around, adding a few of his own embellish- 
ments perhaps; and if it happened to be Sunday 
night, he would pound it out for the Log or 
Trident, who were the recipients of these, his 
efforts. Then too, there were a few people to 
whom he wrote without benefit of typewriter, 
though on the whole, Dick took no woman 
seriously. The week-ends, however, usually 
found him "dragging" if he could find something 
along his line nearby. 

Dick's early training started at St. Paul's and 
Severn. Crew, swimming, football, and golf 
held his attention then, but his abilities did not 
end with these; he added boxing and track here. 
Always interested in one of these, he rarely 
smoked and, when he did, it was a pipe. How- 
ever, he has been a Southern gentleman ever 
since he could spell "prohibition." His real 
loves are airplanes and cars, and a nice soft bed 
to "caulk" on; his minor joys consist of receiv- 
ing mail, and winning arguments.

SOMEHOW Ed decided that he would like to 
spend his time out in the great open spaces, 
so he joined the Navy and now sees them through 
a porthole. Next to a commission which he hopes 
to get, his most prized possession is his class 
ring, and there is a reason why. All during the 
past years he never seems to have made much of 
an impression upon the academic departments 
with the result that he has been "unsat" most 
of the time; but he possesses an extraordinary 
ability to "pull sat" at the last moment. Boning 
and extra instruction tried to hold him down. 
Other times, however, he devoted to working 
out at almost anything — wrestling, handball, 
or bowling. He did not concentrate on any organ- 
ized sport. His most intensive interest recently 
has been, alas, a woman. We thought that a 
man of Ed's caliber would be pestered with 
women, certainly, and that he might be taken 
for a buggy ride, but for a wee bit of femininity 
to do it, seems to show that his cruises with the 
Navy have availed him nothing. Perhaps in this 
we find the reason for his generally cheerful, yet 
moody disposition, nothing seems to change his 
unhurrying, complacent attitude.

One who found solace in his lot with, "Well, I

his Nemesis, you see. His academic disposition 
is well balanced and perhaps his understanding

OE is an unassuming fellow whose happy 
O smile and pleasing ways have left their im- 
pression on his classmates. In the summer of 
192.9 he left his home in Massachusetts to cast 
his lot with the Navy, a choice which, during the 
bitter Plebe Year that followed, he had occasion 
to regret. Academics were but a small part of his 
difficulties and when the smoke cleared away in 
June, he found himself still "unsat" and facing a 
re-exam. The years which followed, however, 
were happy ones, filled with friendships and 
pleasant associations, and marred only by an 
occasional upset in steam or ordnance. 

His apparent ineptitude for things mechanical 
betrays an artistic temperament, which is con- 
tent to leave the study of mechanical details to 
ruder minds. Joe finds delight in music and litera- 
ture, and has spent many happy hours with the 
novels of George Eliot and Walter Scott. He is a 
dreamer and an idealist, with a vivid imagina- 
tion and a ready smile. Notwithstanding, he is a 
"red mike" of the old school, and admits of few 
equals in that respect around these parts. 

He has always been true to the Navy, has 
seldom been heard to complain of its stern disci-

complex to permit more than an outline; appear-

but always manly; personality — attractive, it 
must be admitted, but volatile, vibrating from 
purest ecstasy to blackest purgatory; ambition — 
neither vaulting to glory nor grasping for money

to arrive intuitively at conclusions and maintain 
them against all onslaughts of logic. Accom- 
plishments — a loving ability, a useful way with 
cards, and an appreciation of beauty in all its

FOUR years ago, the General descended from

ference with which he was received, he settled 
down, full of energy and ambition, to learn how 
to run the Navy. Early in his career he acquired 
an ambition to be a D.O. at the Academy. "Now 
when I get back here on duty — " and the Gen-

You remember, of course, the tramp in the

but he seems to enjoy the hops none the less. 
In fact, there are few hops at which he is not

Alligator State; the other is making up, or pass- 
ing on "official" dope. "Have you heard about 
such and such?" and in spite of pillows, shoes 
or even tables flying at him, he will tell you all 
about it, and in five minutes be back with more. 
In spite of his fun, he still takes a great interest 
in the Service and is never willing to shirk his job. 

Jim claims he is no ladies man, and true, he 
seems to have no O.A.O., but just start in on 
the "weaker" sex and — "Now I remember a 
little girl down home — ." 

With his inexhaustible store of good humor 
and friendship, coupled with grit and friendly 
interest, he should go a long way, and we'll all 
be there watching and wishing him the best 
of luck. 







McCoLL, South Carolina 

"Barney" "Bill" "Bing" 

BARNEY'S early aspirations were to be a 
doctor, but after spending a year at the 
Citadel, he decided that medicine did not have 
the alluring prospects he had been led to believe. 
In searching for other fields, he hit upon the 
Navy, and before long, he left South Carolina 
to take up his abode in Maryland. 

Social activities proved to be his weakness. 
He became so tied up that he had little oppor- 
tunity for other engagements. No hop passed 
but that Barney was seen strutting into Dahlgren 
Hall with some shining example of what the 
American girl should look like. Academics 
have not been easy for him, but with the burial 
of math he found considerable relief. 

Barney is one of those rare types of persons 
who can adapt himself to any circumstance. 
When things go right, he likes it and when 
things go wrong, he smiles and says, "Oh well, 
fifty years from now I'll never know the differ- 
ence." His generosity and willingness to give or 
lend have made him the supply department for 
whatever deck he happened to be living on. 

His pleasant personality have made him many 
friends who will deeply regret parting from him 
at graduation.

ONE June day we got a big break when Dukie 
came to us from Berlin, New Hampshire, 
way up on the Canadian border where seventy- 
five percent of the population speaks French and 
everyone loves beer. Quiet and unassuming, Val 
has a likeable disposition and has made a host 
of friends. He has always been willing to give 
the other fellow a helping hand and is generous 
to a fault. 

Academics were a consideration to him but, 
as soon as Youngster steam was over, so were 
most of his troubles. The least of Maurice's 
worries are the ladies. Give him a good book, or 
a "Vic" with a stack of Bing Crosby's records 
and he is quite content. "Why lose all my sleep 
for a hop?" 

Although he is not an athlete himself, he can 
give you any track or swimming record offhand 
and he follows the sports as closely as is humanly 
possible. Leave is the only thing he looks forward 
to with greater anticipation than a meet with 

We, who have been close to Dickie these four 
years, we who have seen him under adverse 
conditions and who have learned to admire him, 
will always gladly call him our friend. 




Washington, District of Columbia 

"Pat" "Cerversa" " Padereuiski" 

PAT, Navy Junior, born in Woodbury, New 
Jersey, is all Navy and all Supply Corps. 
He claims Washington as his home but has left 
aliases in Philadelphia. He first aspired to the 
military as a captain in the Washington High 
School Cadets. 

Pat is a seaman, a salty sailor who enjoys 
sailing knockabouts and half-raters. However, 
photography is his greatest passion. He gladly 
exhibits the proof of his prowess in the form of a 
gigantic album devoted to cruise pictures. 

He makes friends slowly and then annoys them 
continuously. Nearly every hop finds Pat drag- 
ging some beautiful femme. Aside from being a 
"snake" Pat is a born fighter. Not only does he 
imitate the "Londos" wrestling tactics but in a 
fight with the Medical Department he stared, 
strained, and squinted to crash through with fif- 
teen/twenty in each eye. We're fighting in 
there, old man! 

Cerversa had a remarkable interest in swim- 
ming before reveille until an order was published 
making such swimming legal and regulation.

Tyler, Texas 

"Bull" "Jack" "Buck" 

HAILING from Texas, his ambition to be a 
sailor has been the one governing principle 
since he was old enough to toddle. It led him to 
service in the Merchant Marine from which now 
and then we hear of his hair-raising escapades; 
and from there to the Navy. 

It is seldom that the Naval Service is honored 
with such a versatile and talented disciple of the 
doctrine of "leave and liberty" and the pursuit 
of Cupid and Morpheus. Beside such paramount 
issues mere trifles such as "grease," studies, and 
athletics become non-essentials. Thus his life 
has been one of countless friendships not a few 
of which are among the fair sex. It is said that 
one time while on leave he lost his aim of avowed 
bachelorhood and cultivated thoughts of 

Bull has little in the way of outward prowess 
with which to bid for fame, yet behind his 
whimsical smile and steady eyes are the requi- 
sites of a seagoing salt and good humor that

Friends find him human; enemies can't find 
him at all; and we find him just right.

Westfield, New Jersey 


THERE are perhaps few among us whose will 
to win has carried them as far as has Omar's. 
After a taste of collegiate life at Princeton, he 
forsook that institution to become as stern a 
Navy rooter as can be found. 

Although originally a "red mike," he has 
changed to the dreamer's side of life. He delights 
in reading his letters thoughtfully and theexpres- 
sions on his face tell a story in themselves. 

His main problem in life is keeping that rare 
silk on the top of his cranium. It is a problem, 
indeed. Ask anyone who has been on the inside 
on some of the rather rare reunions of those whose 
troubles lie on (not in) similar spheres. 

For some reason he enjoys plowing into people. 
His slogan is, "The bigger they are the harder 
they fall." The Dutch in him shows itself in his 
determination to win and this determination 
has won for him the coveted "N." He is not 
only a two-sport man but a "savoir" of no mean 
ability. His interest in the literary has carried 
him to the point where poetry is his weakness, 
which is more or less unfortunate. 

Despite the fact that he is now a permanent 
resident of New Jersey where men are men and 
mosquitos are horses, he still yearns for the wild 
and woolly West. Every spring he opened the 
fishing season sitting on the radiator, holding a 
broom out the window. Be assured that his 
catch was small, but "Field and Steam" promises 
better prospects for the future. 

Omar is a man who is a man, a true friend and 
a roommate of the better order.

New York, New York 
"Vat" "Irish" "Joe" 

A BIG man from a big town. New York, the 
ex-home of a suave and dapper ex-mayor and 
the Statue of Liberty, made another bid to fame 
by sending one of her favorite sons to this first 
rung in the ladder to fame and fortune. 

Those intimately acquainted with this salty 
son of Erin and appraising his inherent abilities 
at their true worth can readily understand his 
boyhood ambition of becoming a "big Irish cop." 
But bigger and better things were in store for the 
child of destiny. Following one of his hunches, 
he shipped his oars, wrapped his Gillette and 
the family tooth brush in a handkerchief and 
entered within these grey walls to become the 
proponent of bigger and better scuttlebutt, 
prophet of unadulterated dope. His seemingly 
supernatural power of getting the news before 
the news has had time to become itself has caused 
the more cynical of us to wonder just where 
the dope originated. 

Sleep is his hobby, baseball his sport, and bull 
sessions his forte. As an argufier he has no peer. 
What he lacks in logic he makes up in volume, 
and so bewilders his opponents, so quickly lost 
in the maze of his arguments that they always 
retire in confusion. 

Being human he has his faults, but deep under- 
neath the New York accent are qualities that far 
outweigh them — qualities that have made him 
the best of rommates and a staunch friend and 
bid fair to take him a long way in years to come.

El Paso, Texas 

"Ed" "Ned" "Tex" 

TEX, as his name implies, is a true lover of his 
native state and his favorite pastime is work- 
ing gratis for the Texas Chamber of Commerce. 
However, the call of the sea lured even this 
favored son from his native haunts and one hot 
day in June he arrived in "ole Crabtown." A 
few days later found him one of us — as staunch 
and true a son of the Navy as he is of Texas. 

Tex has never found any serious trouble in 
handling the academics, but being a true South- 
erner, he likes to take things easy. Thus we find 
him wearing a sunny smile and a contented look 
instead of stars. 

He is not a "snake" — nor is he a "red mike." 
He finds a happy medium somewhere between 
the two. Perhaps the reason for this is the dis- 
tance between Crabtown and El Paso. However, 
he succumbs every spring or thereabouts to "the 
best girl north of Texas." 

But we have learned considerably more from 
Tex than just the particulars concerning the land 
of milk and honey and beautiful women. No 
worries nor cares, a sunny disposition and a 
merry sense of humor are enviable characteristics 
which can carry anybody a long way on the 
road to success. Good luck, Tex!

"Jim" "Fergie" 

JIM didn't have far to go when he decided to 
join the old Nyvee. He had but to step through 
his front door and he was with us — all ready to 
do his part in making our class what we boast it. 
All of us know Fergie's home is just a step from 
old gate number three and we have all been 
privileged to drop in and make ourselves at 
home Saturdays, Sundays, or any old-time. 

At work we find Fergie always well able to 
cope with the "acs" — a middle section man, we 
say. In athletics he was well berthed on both 
the soccer and lacrosse teams. In these sports he 
proved one of Navy's mainstays and succeeded 
in winning Varsity numerals in each. A day at 
lacrosse was wasted if it did not yield at least 
one black eye. 

One of his chief hobbies was keeping himself 
and others supported with records of the latest 
song hits. Fergie was always buying records and 
anyone and everyone was always welcome to 
them. It was just another way in which his good 
nature and agreeable manner were portrayed. 

A representative midshipman in every sense of 
the word — we are proud to claim him as one of 
us. Upon glancing back upon Jim's academy 
work and play we cannot but say, "well done, 
Jim, old boy" — we wish you just as much success 
in the future.

Ed' ' ' 'Jack' ' ' ' Stonewall' ' 

HE HAILS from Lawrence, Massachusetts and 
says, "Bah Habaw." He can also boast of 
having lived in Arizona and California, not long 
enough, however, to have acquired the native 
son attitude. He had a brother in West Point who 
instilled in him the ambition to enter the Service. 

Ed has always been a happy-go-lucky type of 
fellow, seldom blue, and usually sporting a good 
old Irish smile. He never let things worry him, 
not even when he received threatening letters 
from the Supe during Youngster Year, letters 
which reminded him that "unsats" have to give 
up Christmas leave. Naturally rather savvy, he 
stood well in the class, all without the monotony 
of undue "boning," especially if it interfered 
with anything else that met his fancy. 

Plebe Year he received awards as cross country 
and track manager, but this did not prove excit- 
ing enough for his naturally active nature, so he 
tried the athletic game himself. Track, boxing, 
wrestling, and football all have had their place. 
During Second Class Year he became one of the 
mainstays of the class football team. 

His interests are varied; ranging all the way 
from drawing to women. Not a "snake" or a 
"red mike," he enjoys a good time. 

Aviation is his goal ; may he go far and fly high .

WHEN Happy came out of the land of the 
Tar Heels, he packed up most of its sun- 
shine and brought it along with him. Many 
podunks claim this true gentleman, but Balti- 
more was his birthplace — a lot to be lived down. 

A determined nature and steady application 
enabled him to thwart the ensnaring academic 
departments. He is by no means a "snake" yet 
he can enjoy to the fullest an occasional drag. 
His smile and the sunniest of dispositions have 
drawn a host of friends to him. Our pity and a 
load of brickbats always went out to him when 
he set up his nightly warbling in the shower. 

This fighting manager answered the call of 
the wrestling game for his first three years, win- 
ning an NA by merit of his wrestling Second 
Class Year. Being second best as a manager 
caused him to take a reef in his belt and to take 
up wrestling seriously. Lacrosse, track and soc- 
cer were all more or less unsuccessful attempts 
in his athletic career. 

A pal and a friend that any man would be 
proud to have, we wish Chubby full speed ahead 
and good luck in the years to come.

"Admiral" "Unk" 

HE COMES from way out there on the dusty- 
plains of Kansas where the sun sets between 
his house and town, on the border line of civili- 
zation, at the jumping-ofF place to the wild and 
woolly West. He got his first yearnings for the 
sea on the banks of the muddy Arkansas from 
whence at the tender age of eighteen he came to 
Uncle Sam's haven of learning on the Severn. 

Girls, beware of this tall handsome "snake." 
Women have always been fair game to him in 
any season. He is too versatile to tie himself 
down with an O.A.O. and so goes about break- 
ing the hearts of it matters not who. His formula 
fits anything from red hair and cross-eyes to 
platinum blondes and velvety brunettes. 

When he was not dragging or writing to one 
of his harem, he worked out with Spike Webb's 
protegees. At the end of Plebe Year, he became a 
casualty. However, true to the old proverb, he 
would not stay down, and spent a season with 
the beef trust recuperating for his big comeback 
in the ring. 

Frank listened to advice on anything he did 
and then he went ahead and did it the way he 
was going to in the first place. A fine sense of 
humor and comradeship have made our four 
years with him replete with valued memories.

After finishing high school Mac tried his hand 
in the merchant marine, but, finding that he was 
wasting his talents there, he decided to attend 
Uncle Sam's "Country Club" on the Severn. 

Mac's favorite slogan is "Let nothing inter- 
fere with my sleeping." His living up to this has 
caused him some trouble with the Academic 
Department — especially during lectures. 

As a roommate, he has shown himself to be a 
true friend, though at times his socialistic ideas 
(he is a Russian in spite of his name) tend to 
disrupt the domestic tranquillity. It is true that 
life was never dull when he was around. 

The fair sex? He did not succumb to their 
wiles until Youngster Year and after that he 
gradually freed himself again from their influ- 
ence. His worries? They were confined only to 
academics. His vices? One cannot say that he 
had any, unless playing bridge every afternoon 
can be so classed. 

Mac has set his heart upon being a naval 
officer and when he receives his commission, the 
Navy will receive a valuable addition.

Portsmouth, Virginia 
"Willie" "Psycho" "Logan" 

PORTSMOUTH is a fairly good place to be 
from, so we found within these walls, one 
summer day, this youth who intended to spend 
four years of that precious period of life and 
has succeeded in doing so. 

He cannot be card-indexed or put in a class by 
himself. He is well read. His dissertations range 
from Aesop's Fables to Kant, expounded with 
cold logic, heated interest and an admirable 
choice of words. 

Even during his last two years here, after he 
became well known, a difficulty was found in 
passing the "L's" in the muster lists. He stood 
the strain well, of being called everything from 
Langhorn to Leghorn until it was gently bruited 
about that his name was pronounced like "the 
grass in the front yard." 

Willie considers handball as the best means to 
keep his muscles and mind active for long ses- 
sions of bridge. He is very good at both. Not 
usually seen at hops, but always noticed dashing 
in at last moments from liberty after having had 
a delightful tete-a-tete with fair school teachers 
for whom he has a particular affinity. 

He is the possessor of a good mind with a 
turn for the practical, especially for intricate 
electrical hook-ups. More than welcome with 
his willingness to please and to debate, we see 
him in the future, with his sincere interest in 
the Service, a very competent officer.

TO HEAR him speak one would take him for a

IX, decided that he would have to leave the 
battlefield to add further laurels to his family 
name. The sea offered this opportunity as well as 
providing an outlet for his engineering talent.

discovered that it was useless to try to impede 
the progress of our hero. Though always worried 
about bilging out he was always successful in 
his studies whether bv dint of actual application 
of that disarming smile.

hours he was probably in the library adding fur- 
ther weight to his title of "boy psychologist."

IT WAS only natural for Chevy to find himself 
at the school of embryo naval officers. Coming 
from a long line of naval men, he bowed to the

one of the "pampered pets." 

Plebe Year he started right out and demon- 
strated his ability to keep the academic depart- 
ments well under control and kept them com- 
pletely baffled ever after. The executive depart- 
ment scored against him occasionally but he 
always came out on top at the conclusion of

evidenced by his first two June Balls, but women 
have failed to become an avocation with him

a stalwart champion who is only waiting for 
that certain one and then . . . . ! 

His athletic abilities are scattered among many 
fields — golf (he was the champ of '33), bowling 
and hurling the discus served to consume his 
recreation hours. Somewhat related to these 
achievements is his ability to down sundaes in 
rapid succession — this feat being a marvel to all 
those having witnessed it. 

Withal Chevy is a true friend and loyal ship- 
mate as anyone will attest who has pierced his 
external shell and discovered the wealth of 
warmth and admirable qualities beneath.

Although he is a sand-blower, he likes to play 
with the big boys, particularly in football and 
water-polo, where he is a tower of strength. 

He is possessed of an appetite like unto none 
the world has ever seen, and he breaks down 
whenever he suspects that there is food nearby 
that he cannot eat. His roommates' and neigh- 
bors' chow was likewise Chubby's. 

Oscar found plenty of time and opportunity 
to drag, in spite of the fact that he was not 
a "snake." 

Morning, noon and night he sang one tune — 
which he changed every month — more or less off 
key, thus endangering the sanity of his room- 
mates and neighbors. Often, all that saved his 
life at such times was the expression with which 
he adorned his countenance; it never failed to 
turn tears to laughter. 

He always took himself and the academics seri- 
ously, but, withal, he has been a care-free, ever 
smiling pal, always ready for mischief — except 
when holding a sack; then Duty became his God, 
before whom we lesser mortals bowed down.

PETE (acclaimed by the press as "Isadore" 
when extolling his achievements in fencing) 
hails from the suburbs of Chicago — not the gun 
totin' type, just a peaceable, law abiding citizen. 

He studied intensively and intelligently during 
the allotted time. This enabled him to stand high 
in his class and also left abundant time for more 
pleasant activities. He avoided wasting time; 
while others were deliberately loafing, Petecould 
be found in some activity conducive to physical

Pete was a mainstay on the fencing team,

anxious nights to his roommate. 

For two years the fair sex found a heart that

"Biz.Z?U" "Rosie" "Iron Man" 

OUR chief impression of Bizzell (Ireland's 
finest, tempered by the Carolina sun) is 
that of a spirit of self reliance and quiet deter- 
mination. Thriving on hard work and ever awake 
to opportunity, Rosie made of a term in the Navy 
a stepping stone in his path to the Academy. 

We have suspicions that academics, as far as 
Von Bizzell is concerned, serve merely to occupy 
the time between daily workouts in the wrestling 
loft or gym. Winner of success far above the 
average, through calm reasoning and common 
sense rather than academic sleight-of-hand, he is 
always ready with, "Sure, here's how you 
do that." 

He consistently refuses to spend time on activi- 
ties well within his abilities but not of interest 
to him. Exponent of championship handball. 
Iron Man turns his strenuous work to account 
by combining it with a natural instinct for 
wrestling to win a secure place on the team. With 
all his awesome muscle and unique record of 
never having dragged, we predict that Bizzell, 
true to form, will fall before some frail colleen. 
Possessing the knack of making friends, Rosie is 
the ideal companion and the best of pals on a

roughest, there's Bizzell with a smile.

HEY, Alpha, you're on the tree again for

greeted Eddie continuously throughout Plebe 
and Youngster Years; but, possessing a spirit 
which could not be subdued. Alpha fought it 
out with the academics and finally emerged 
the winner. 

Reddest of "red mikes" is Alphabet; that is, 
around Crabtown. Deep down in his heart, how- 
ever, he does have a soft spot for the women. 
When on leave and not under the restraining in- 
fluence of academic worries, he's a regular lion.

lows all branches of sports with a rabid interest

win all of its athletic contests. 

Aviation holds for him the greatest fascination 
of all. There is little that he can't tell you con- 
cerning it. His cup of happiness will be overflow- 
ing on the day he takes his uniforms to the tailor 
to have his wings sewn on. 

Quiet, unassuming, hard-working, and

ANOTHER son of the wide open spaces of the

old Father Neptune, waded into the Academy

manner about his person. Always liked, always 
liking and eager to please everyone, he has since 
made excellent progress in every way. 

Easy John is well-known by many, but Eagle- 
beak is known by more as everyone's pal and 
nobody's fool. 

Studies were never a real obstacle for E. J. 
as were gym and swimming tests. However, by 
the time Christmas leaves rolled around gym 
and swimming tests, studies and everything that 
did not mean utmost relaxation and enjoyment 
were things of the past.

was to be found in the gym on the handball

Face to face we see E. J. not a "savoir," not

not a "red mike" yet not a "snake"; he's just 
an ordinary person of pleasing personality who 
will find it easy to be an officer and a gentleman.

"Pablo" "Kid" 

WELL, friends, here's Pablo, of Paterson, 
New Jersey, and known as Paul Masterton 
to brothers, lawyers, politicians, admirals, and 
bill collectors. 

Lured bv the taste of fig and pineapple salad, 
he landed in the Second Batt Plebe Year, where 
he commenced his tour of three training tables 
annually. Wotta Man! Youngster Year he came 
over to the Third Batt to spend the rest of his 
sentence, auf deutsch, and found more friends. 
Adventure called him, however, and he momen- 
tarily left us for a ten day cruise a la Reina, to 
return unscathed — more or less. 

Academically his rise has been short of mete- 
oric. From the hoi polloi of the anchor sections 
to the top one in "juice," among others, is 
indicative of his savviness. 

Some day ask any one of the numerous drags 
who came here about him. They basked in his 
sunny smile like moths around a candle (only 
he isn't as dangerous). They'll tell you of the 
many fallen adversaries (and hunk of shin) that 
he's left on the soccer field, about his basketball, 
and about his stellar performances in left field. 
Even his "ebony gallery" wouldn't leave you in 
the dark about him, there. 

And so, my friends, if you're ever shipmates 
with him, whether on the "Saratoga" or the 
"Spitkit," you'll know as we do — there's no

Boston, Massachusetts 

"Bob" "Little Fella" 

HERE we have a little dark curly haired man 
from the "Hub of the Universe" and the 
land of the "King's English." A product of 
Boston Latin, whose academic accomplishments 
are in keeping with the reputation of his erst- 
while Alma Mater. He is not a genius, nor a 
midnight oil burner, but a real reliable man who 
usually found his way to the top sections. 

Not blessed with an over abundance of natural 
ability, he never attained fame and glory on the 
athletic field, but his soccer activities were not 
unrewarded, and as a rough and tumble artist, 
he can surely give a good account of himself. 

Conquests of Washington, Baltimore, and even 
the Mosquito State were included in his search 
for the O.A.O. His unlimited supply of humor, 
mostly puns, proved a great attraction, and 
drags came from all directions. A certain Miss 
Springfield received a great deal of his attention 
and for a long while the case seemed serious. He 
still claims that she was merely a "duty drag" 
but we think there was something "extra" 
about the whole thing. 

The Little Fella is as fine a friend as one would 
care to have, and some day when you meet up 
with him, whether with the Marines in Tahiti 
or in the Wardroom of the "Tuscarora," you'll 
realize that "There's None Better."

"Soupy" "Ernie" 

SOUPY came to us from California. That land 
of fruit and sunshine endowed him with an 
internal fire which goads him on to bigger and 
better deeds. Wrestling, fasting, classic litera- 
ture, and early rising are routine to this human 
bundle of energy. That eye hiding grim and 
cheerful love song are typical of Soupy and are 
appreciated by his friends. Philosophy, religion, 
dietetics and love are all at his fingertips, free to 
those who are willing to discuss the serious 
problems of life. An intelligent discussion is the 
spice of Soupy's life. 

The Academic Departments have never scored 
against this hard worker. Concentration and 
ambition have kept him near the height of the 
stars. Never was a struggling classmate turned 
away from his door without a full share of his 

Campbell voices his allegiance to the moderns, 
the "different," the original; and works hard to 
swallow his own medicine. 

He is a steady, reliable man, a happy addition 
to any ship and one we will be glad to call

"Jim" "Ox" "Boho" 

DOOMED to a musician's lot for life, Jim, 
in order to escape, left the Queen City down 
on the beautiful Ohio; and in search of a better 
and more serious profession, entered the school 
of naval science. But having music on his brain 
he could not place that calling aside. He con- 
tinued to toot his horn until he was almost 
threatened with ostracism. His efforts bore fruit, 
however, and Jim became an integral part of 
those music-makers, the N.A. Ten, being their 
skipper during his First Class Year. 

Music is not the only interest of this talented 
young man. Building models, making art books, 
living in warm climates with a hot, shining sun, 
and "scoffing pogey-bait," are some of his other 
occupations. His greatest and most ardent ambi- 
tion is to be a perfect physical specimen. A 
passionate delight of his is finding errors in text 
books. Academics never caused him any worry. 
For him they were just an easy burden to help 
pass away the time. 

Not much taken with the ladies, he has 
avoided hops and the joys (also the sorrows) 
of dragging. 

Good natured, easy-going, and generous, Bobo 
cannot help but make innumerable friends wher- 
ever he goes.

"Bobby" " General 

THOUGH Bobby first saw light of day in our 
own beloved Crabtown, he didn't stay long 
enough to experience the thrills of picking up 
pennies around Tecumseh, for he is a Navy Junior 
and hence has become a true cosmopolite. He has 
followed the footsteps of his father (which is 
something in itself as Robert Senior was a track 
man) and hopes to follow that trail to sea and 
the four stripes that adorn the parental arm. 
Nature made him small, like all good things, 
so he boasts no Block N's, but he's been a power 
on various class teams. He tantalized the aca- 
demic departments by making them think he 
didn't get their stuff and then pulled sat the 
last month. One can't call him a "snake" but 
there's a girl in Washington and one in — well. 
Bobby's been around a lot and you know how it 
is. He's cheerful all the time except ten minutes 
every morning just to break the monotony; likes 
to read, especially letters; has no major vices 
except that he did like to bilge the boys in Dago; 
likes European cruises and "red eye" on his 
hamburger number one and is equally normal in 
all other respects. He is thoroughly likeable at 
all times. What more can one say?

"Lou" "M.ihe" 

TO KNOW the history of a man's life, even if 
the greater part of that life has been spent 
behind barb wire fences and grey stone walls, 
certain essentials must be told. 

First, everyone is born somewhere. Charley 
hails from Oklahoma but early in life he decided 
it was easier to navigate a battleship on the high 
seas and see the world through a port hole than 
to navigate a plow over the Oklahoma prairie 
and view the landscape over a pair of handle- 
bars; so he headed for Annapolis. 

Second, hobbies throw a great light on even a 
midshipman's life. When nothing of more im- 
portance is to be done, and he feels a primitive 
urge, Charley sallies over to MacDonough Hall 
and dons the boxing gloves under Spike Webb's 
tutelage. On rainy days, he parks his feet under a 
bridge table and passes the time away throwing 
deuces and trays in his partner's face. 

Third, women interest him not, and his only 
passions are peanuts and sweet potatoes — baked 
if you please. 

Little did the home folks know of the storm 
to engulf Charley when he embarked on the sea 
of life to be tossed about by first classmen, D.O's 
and profs. The first vanished with Plebe Year; 
the last he didn't take too seriously. So only the 
D.O's were left and life went on: quite serenely 
at that.

"Bilge Water" "Doc" "Baldy" 

BALDY heard the call of the far off sea and 
came to us from the "wild and woolly 
West," one day in June, 1919, ready to conquer 
the hectic East and the briny deep. We often 
wonder if it was a dry year in Oklahoma that 
caused Baldy to seek more water, because he 
does love shore duty, thanks to his besetting 
sin and weakness — woman. He is a good sailor, 
but women are not common on the sea. For that 
reason he often wonders whether or not he 
should have left the home state — yet he, inevi- 
tably concludes that he did the right thing. 

Excepting math, academics held no fears for 
him. He could have starred if it were not for 
the fair sex. He knows that no one loves a bald 
man so he spends most of his time trying new 
remedies for falling hair. All suggestions are 
cordially accepted. 

Try as you might you cannot find a better 
friend in a day's journey. He is all and more 
than one could wish for. 

"Luck to you, Baldy."

"Jimmy" "Jesse" 

HE ARRIVED with a lust for the higher alti- 
tudes and the wings of a naval aviator, 
which even the struggle with that grim night- 
mare known as "Dago" could not abate. 

After the first month's exertion to obtain vel- 
vet, he avidly devoured fiction, continuing until 
his foraging yielded no m*re magazines. He 
enjoys being a typical "red mike," and true to 
the tradition of that self-styled clan, has a new 
femme with every change of the moon. Occa- 
sionally foregoing the attraction and infinite 
comfort of the radiator, he could be found in 
the pistol gallery firing the expert course with 
the service automatic, seeking perhaps to justify 
the "Jesse James." 

We like him for his grin, cheery chuckle, and 
good sense of humor. He will talk to you any 
old time about any subject; while here he pre- 
ferred to do so in ranks. Possessing an innate 
sense of justice, a generous consideration of 
others, and an ardent loyalty to the Service, this 
scion of Dixie rightfully bears the character of 
a Southern gentleman.

ANOTHER name was added to that long list 
-ti- of native sons who have answered Neptune's 
call when Larry held up his right hand on that 
day of June in 192.9. 

Four years at the West Point of the West, 
the San Diego Army and Navy Academy, helped 
him survive Plebe Year. The academics never 
worried him although his grades belied this. He 
always pulled through when things looked black- 
est without expending too much of his reserve 

Larry has but one true love, although many a 
passing fancy. He never hesitated to drag blind 
for a friend in need, despite the untold disap- 
pointments he had had. 

He spent most of his idle moments playing 
bridge or, when he was unable to find three more 
to make a foursome, even solitaire helped him 
pass many an hour. A sprained knee put him 
out of athletics permanently but his love for 
tennis has at least kept him on the sidelines 
as manager. 

Quiet and unassuming, always ready to lend 
a helping hand, he has proven himself to be a 
real roommate and a dependable classmate. May 
he find success in life whether it be in the Navy 
or the good old U.S.S. Outside.

Studebaker. Anything to be doing something

Of girls there are and have been and probably 
will be many. He did not take any of them too 
seriously. They never worried him except when 
the mate came around empty handed about time 
for mail delivery. 

He has a habit of making friends with every- 
one whom he meets, and they remain friends. 
We wondered if there are more like him in 
Colorado and if so, we'd like to meet them. He 
is apparently careless and carefree, yet things

courting Miss Springfield during Plebe and

Here is the most representative cross section of 
Freddie's blonde head, filled with an accumula- 
tion of facts on the stock market and a nauseating 
hatred for the language of the Teutons. 

Herr Freddie is one of those fortunate lads 
whom you can't worry no matter how impish 
your nature may be or how vexing. Fred is too 
darn cocky to believe anything's worth his 
worrying about and too formidable a counter 
puncher to ruffle with impunity. 

You have read on the preceding pages of men 
whose pens have been wielded wisely and well, 
of men who have put out plenty for Navy, of 
men who have carried the Blue and Gold to 
victory in the realm of the fairer sex. Freddie 
has performed all these feats and with a style 
peculiar to himself. For three years he sent out 
leather punchers into the ring knowing that as 
far as material and present range plus ballistic 
correction plus spots was concerned the other 
man should hit the canvas. 

There's a little bit of Freddie in nearly every 
good roommate but only Freddie is all Freddie.

"Professor" "Spud" 

SEVERAL years after Lochinvar, Gordon 
sprang up out of the West. He smiled a bit 
sourly at first perhaps, but only as an exterior 
discouragement to the many, yes hordes of 
women who immediately thronged about. His 
smile, his unfailing good humor, his care-free 
disposition and cherubic countenance are the 
bases for his outstanding popularity. Gifted by 
the gods of wisdom as well as of love, he was 
ever ready to act in the role of professor to his 
classmates. He was always equipped for argu- 
ment, so much so that instructors dodged his 
presence with astounding alacrity. Fortified 
with knowledge, he took his place among the 
"savoirs," and yet was qualified to be among 
the "lowly ones" by virtue of his deepest char- 
acteristic — disinclination to labor. 

His name constantly spelled trouble for the 
Academic Departments, havoc for the "snakes," 
and humor plus good times for his buddies. 
Juice and math were his strong points; women 
were his weak ones (though he claims differ- 
ently). The only thing that provoked his anger 
was a prob that he could not work. Clouds of 
slipstick dust ensued and finally Spud emerged 
triumphant. A broad smile gathered all before 
it as he proudly exhibited the answer.

"Bob" "Barney" 

AFTER many attempts, successful or otherwise 
-ii- at various schools. Bob descended upon the 
Naval Academy. His efforts in the past few years 
in athletics, popularity, and love have not been 
without avail. From the very beginning, his 
chief sport was the gentle art of strangulation, 
sometimes referred to as water polo. Broken ear 
drums did not keep him from choking his fellow 
assailants of the suicide squad. 

Without doubt his greatest conquests have 
been with the opposite sex. After starting with 
a very broad field, the number of entrants was 
rapidly diminished to one. In fact as we leave 
him now, there is one and only one upon whom 
he bestows his worth while attention. 

His Nemesis has always been the academics. 
However, by dint of concentrated "boning" 
coupled with hard labor, he has always man- 
aged to earn his leaves. The pleasures of the 
wilds of Long Island well repaid him for his 
efforts. Those unconquerable after-leave blues 
affected him as much as any of us, but he invari- 
ably emerged with a smile. 

His future should be interesting, as his ambi-

Foremost among his activities has been the 
pursuit of the ladies and the fathoming of their 
ways. Apparently his efforts have not been fruit-

"Dave" "Mac" 

TO ATTEMPT to describe this personage in 
the short space allotted here is a difficult task 
and must necessarily be sketchy. To begin with, 
Mac hails from Florida and has never been able 
to acclimate himself to the rigors of Maryland 
winters — or summers. He and the roommate have 
fought a four year battle over the question: 
"Shall the windows be open or closed?" 

In academics Mac hasn't always had the wind 
abaft the beam, so to speak, but in rough weather 
he proved himself to be a good sailor and one 
not easily lost in the academic sea. 

In athletic fields of endeavor, Mac has had 
little or no difficulty in maintaininghis superiori- 
ty over others. For four years he has been the 
Navy's foremost fancy diver, and for those who 
appreciate this most difficult and graceful art he 
has provided many hours of delightful entertain- 
ment. In fact, he so delighted the judges upon 
one occasion that they crowned him inter- 
collegiate champion. In addition to his diving, 
he has proven himself to be an outfielder of no 
mean ability. 

Mac's heart is torn between two loves; one 
is Aphrodite, the other is Morpheus. Sometimes 
one has the upper hand, sometimes the other. 
He enjoys both to the fullest extent and is con- 
tent with either. 

Mac will always find life enjoyable because 
he has an amiable disposition, because he is a 
gentleman, and because he is an optimist.

JUST when this tall and handsome son of the

of Sabetha, he began to realize that in order to 
get anywhere in this world one must go places 
and do things. And so having just heard of the 
Revolutionary War — Sabetha is well out in the

swamped the British at that most thrilling game 
of battleship chess, he decided to try his luck 
at this game which his namesake, John Paul, 
had made so famous. 

He came to us ambitious and fresh, so much 
so that even the long and frequent drills of

Right away he signed up as messenger boy for 
Bill Ingram and became so popular with the

Here's a man that puts more faith in attaining 
success by the use of good common sense than in 
any other way. 

Acy actually slays the women which of course 
has made the author, his roommate, very jealous. 
He always seems to have been in love, all of 
which fits in very well with his theory that "the 
best defense is a good offense." In spite of this, 
however, he is desirous of getting married some 
time and making a home as well as a name

OH, BOY, now that girl is really a little

this little man hails from that town, and when 
he joined the Navy Knoxville lost a good man — 
ask him, if you don't think it is true. The pastime 
for which he is famous, coupled with numerous

Perhaps the most fascinating thing about

THE Third Battalion presents an interesting 
enigma in this fair haired placid appearing

is a most puzzling character because his coun-

contrary, he is a restless impulsive individual 
with a keen mind always set upon accomplishing 
some definite objective. No matter how trivial 
or how titanic his self-set task he throws himself 
into it with an unconquerable vigor. 

In admiring his determination and ability to 
victimize his mental enemy we have often won- 
dered why he hasn't directed it in a manner so 
as to gain the attention of the Regiment. It was 
there that Louie presented his retiring attitude 
inherent, as you guess, from that soothing pose 
at the top of this feeble attempt at description. 
Louie, as becomes sincere artists, abhors the

day in June, '2.9, 'neath a mass of baggage, excite-

over. And he didn't do badly at all. This fact 
was well substantiated by the first section sacks 
which he generally managed to have hung about 
his neck. 

His chief interests seemed to be centered in 
waiting for the cry of "Fall in the mail detail" 
and the arrival of "Cosmo," "Collier's," and 
equally inspiring periodicals. He had a pro- 
nounced weakness for covers designed by Barclay, 
all of which credited him with an eagle eye for 
beauty in the form of woman. This was further 
amplified by his impetuous rushes each week to 
the Annapolis "opera house" to feast his eyes 
on Hollywood's best. 

"Easy going," that's Bob, from a trooper in 
the "Czar's" ranks to a "savoir" in the furore 
of a nav P-work; a true friend to all, one who is 
ever considerate and always willing to lend a

FROM Minneapolis, in the land of the Swedes,

In due season he entered the portals of the

As a Plebe he starred in dramatic reproduction 
of the ' 'Shooting of Dan McGrew ' ' to the amuse-

greatly troubled by academics he usually man-

had more than a passing acquaintance with 
Miss Springfield. 

Afflicted with "O.A.O.-itis," usually a bru- 
nette, he used to sigh soulfully over someone's 
picture and the sun always shines brighter when 
she came down. 

Happy and carefree, he is always at the center 
of the gathering, and at the bottom of any prank 
played. Cheerful and generous and a prince of a 
companion Newt has made manv friends and 
will make many more.

Dick " " Derickson 

BORN in Alaska, Dick early acquired his thirst 
for travel and spent his first years globe 
trotting. Having lived and traveled during this 
time in all parts of the United States and the 
Orient he acquired a vast knowledge of different 
parts of the world and above all a desire to 
become a Naval Officer. 

Although not especially studious he has man- 
aged to weather all academic obstacles easilv 
enough and to stand high in any subject per- 
taining to the Navy except steam, which nearlv 
was his Waterloo during Second Class Year. 

Dick is not altogether concerned with the 
serious side of life. He is always in for a good 
time and where there is a good time there also 
is Dick with his good sense of humor and cheery 
personality. His social obligations are many and 
his one great weakness is the fair sex. In fact 
he was made for romance. Any Sunday he could 
be found dragging and we are glad to say his 
taste was good. 

As a friend Dick rates high. He is a true pal 
to us in time of need and always will be. He will 
be a good addition to the service and a loyal 
shipmate always.

Attica, Indiana 
Smoke' ' ' ' Strainer ' 

ALTHOUGH Smoke was born in wild and 
- woolly Oklahoma, an early urge for the 
metropolitan atmosphere caused him to migrate 
to that cosmopolitan center of Indiana, Attica. 
Of his pre-academy days we know little. We 
delved into the past, but unfortunately (or per- 
haps fortunately) with little success as ' ' Atticky ' ' 
boasts no Winchell. However, we know there 
was a woman. In fact there may have been several 
for if there is any thing Smoke stars in it is 
dragging. It is certain though that whatever he 
did in the good ol' days he did well. 

Some time in the dim past he conceived the 
idea of becoming a naval officer. Whether it 
was from early training, sailing boats in the 
bathtub or from the boy next door who was a 
five-striper is immaterial. Either way Navy got 
the break. The first taste of the military was 
received at Marion Institute. They must have 
done a good job because he has never had any 
trouble with the academics. In fact he is one of 
those who is always "bilging out" — out of the 
first section. Each spring finds him at the crew 
training table and he is rated as a good man both 
there and on the river. 

Always ready to help a classmate whether it 
be in studies, taking a four-O blind drag, or 
lending that last two-bits. Smoke has made 
countless friends and will continue to do so out 
in the Fleet.

"Phil" "Petah" 

THERE isn't much at Northwestern College 
way up in Wisconsin to incite a longing for 
a sea going life. However, that's where Phil 
first felt the lust. 

He made a step toward the military which, 
geographically speaking, brought him a little 
nearer salt water. V.P.I, didn't quite satisfy the 
urge though, so John took a bolder step and 
joined the Navy. At Prep School he polished up 
some previously acquired knowledge and then 
confidently took the final step — the one to 

So well is he equipped, both mentally and 
physically, that there have been very few diffi- 
culties, if any, in his staying well above the 
water, except maybe in trying to find time to 
read all the current novels and magazines. 

Phil has a few faults. For instance he couldn't 
see how anyone could be so "wooden" as his 
roommate and it was with the greatest delight 
that he continually informed said roommate of 
that fact. Another thing — he is quite willing 
to sacrifice a few hours sleep any night to talk 
about crew. He can't be blamed though. He was 
a valuable man to the squad. 

John is going to be a big success, that is 
if he cans the women as well as he usually 
does. Some day he may settle down to an 
O.A.O. However, at present, he won't consider 
such limitations.

ANOTHER one of the many who took advan- 
- tage of the opportunity rather than one 
whose life-long ambition was the Naval pro- 
fession, Carl arrived in our midst early in June 
in the summer of '19. 

After the greater part of that first bewilder- 
ment (so well remembered by most of us) had 
disappeared, he commenced to display a little 
interest in his surroundings. 

Although not inclined to any great extent 
toward athletics, he is decidedly not a member 
of the Radiator Club, spending most of the win- 
ter afternoons in Mahan Hall as a member of the 
Masquerader's cast. 

Although not exceptionally savvy, he has 
managed to keep several jumps ahead of the 
academic board by dint of many long and 
laborious hours with his books. 

He seldom drags and then usually to help out 
a friend or a roommate. His idiosyncrasies (vices 
would probably be the better word) are limited 
to two: punning, and no soap jokes. These he 
still retains in spite of sarcastic comments and 
disparaging remarks received in return for his 

All in all, while rather quiet, unassuming, 
and not especially outstanding, he's a person 
whom one is more than glad to acknowledge as

Waupun, Wisconsin 


WHEN Jim decided to come to Uncle Sam's 
Naval Academy the City of Waupun could 
not have realized just how good a man they 
were sending to represent Wisconsin in that 
so-called "picked group of the nation," the 
Regiment of Midshipmen. He is one of those tall 
silent kind and is exceedingly popular both in 
and out of the Regiment. 

Jim never had to worry much about the aca- 
demics so he took things rather easy and didn't 
let them trouble him too much. Any time a good 
magazine was around it usually took precedence 
over an ordnance or steam book, yet somehow 
whenever grades were posted Jim was right in 
the money, which proved he must have been on 
hand with the goods when called for. 

He was a fine plebe and learned quickly just 
what this Navy is and what it required of him. 
He was one of those the upperclassman admired 
silently as a real man. 

Occasionally, yet very seldom, Jim "flew off 
the handle' ' but then even the best of men would 
do that if three pestering roommates started 
working on him. Anyway, dear reader, you can 
put this down where it will stay, Jim Kastein is a 
mighty fine fellow and a good friend to have.

San Diego, California 

"Al" "Bosco" 

IT'S a far cry from sunny San Diego to the 
confines of Bancroft Hall, but Al will admit 
without much urging, that he hails from the 
Golden State. He was not long in joining the 
regular Navy, ostensibly to see the world; but 
strangely enough, the summer of '2.9 found him 
knocking at the gates with the rest of us and 
signing the document which gave his services 
to the country as long as the President chose to 
accept them. 

Bosco has never been conquered by academics, 
although he has been pushed enough to make 
the competition interesting. Most of the final 
"trees" found him several jumps ahead. 

His interest in the fairer sex has been what 
you might call transitory, yet there was never a 
hop that didn't find him on hand, either alone 
or accompanied. 

If you were to catalog Al, the last thing you 
could call him would be a member of the re- 
nounced "Radiator Club." He spent his week 
days working out at water polo, diving or crew; 
and Sunday afternoons always found him helping 
out the class or company in competitiveathletics. 

Whether his future lies in the Service or on the 
outside, Al will always be known as hard work- 
ing, dependable, and sincere.

"Bub" "Chico" 

ONE sunny afternoon Ralph decided that the 
life of a Chula V^ista rancher was too tame 
for him and that a naval career would be more 
suitable to his temperament. Whereupon he 
packed his bag and came East to join us on 
the Severn. 

Ralph has done unusually well in everything 
from athletics to academics. He has managed to 
retain a high position academically without 
cutting in too much on his "outside reading." 
He has even found time to impart his knowledge 
to others when the occasion demanded. In ath- 
letics, he proved that oft repeated statement that, 
"you can't keep a good man down" — at least, 
on the football field you can't. He rose from a 
third string center to a first string end and did it 
in spite of the fact that everyone else on the team 
outweighed him at least ten pounds. Hard work 
and fight are his outstanding characteristics. 
Those who have met him in the ring can confirm 
the latter. 

Ralph has the reputation of a "red mike;" 
is always present at "bull sessions;" wears 
woolen socks and treasures a smelly pipe which 
he uses only when not in training. He is of the 
type who grows on you and so, after four years, 
he has won many lifelong friends.

"Jimmy" "Jig Jig" 

JIMMIE is a likeable chap and easy to get 
along with. Comes from the capital of Illinois 
and always has a good word to put up for either 
the city or the state. He is known to most of us 
perhaps as one who always has a few good 
novels on hand. 

As to sports, he has a long record behind him. 
Those of us who knew him out in the fleet before 
he came here are sorry that he didn't try boxing 
here, but he chose wrestling and has stuck to it. 
For two years he had to be satisfied to be Danny 
Goodman's partner during the week and an on- 
looker during the meets. In the fall he kept in 
condition with class football and was a very dis- 
tinct aid in spite of his being a sandblower. 

Hops did not interest him much and his inter- 
est in girls has been purely local as far as we have 
been able to determine. Movies and shows he 
never missed, and invariably played bridge on 
the train to and from football games. 

Jimmie is well-known and well liked by those 
who know him. Need more be said?

THE call of the sea carries far, even to Idaho. 
Randy came to us bringing the qualities of a 
true Westerner. He is a philosopher who takes 
life as he finds it and never lets it worry him 
for long. 

Unlike most of us, he is really a good sailor, 
and is never happier than with his hand on the 
tiller and a pipe in his mouth. His chief diver- 
sions are threefold: talking, listening, and writ- 
ing letters — but the greatest of these is talking. 
Randy is a born follower of the "tall story." 
He has won the reputation of a later day Mun- 
chausen, and holds the field against all comers. 

In his lighter moments, good music or a good 
book may keep him busy. By "good " we mean 
just that — for Randy enjoys the classics of both 
literature and music. However, the chances are 
more than even that, instead, he will have a 
letter to write. For Randy, though strong in 
many things, falls easily before the feminine. 
He surrendered long ago to a coalition of Plebe 
Year, June Week and "the sweetest girl. ' ' 

We have roamed together in Hamburg, we've 
caught salmon together in Scotland and we've 
argued all over the world. Randy has proved 
himself a good sport, and gentleman, and a 
real friend. 




Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

"M.ac" "Chummie" 

JUST a volunteer from the anthracite belt, Mac 
joined the Navy when he saw the depression 
approaching. However, this was not prompted 
by a trend toward laziness, for he has been active 
in various fields, athletic and social. Each year 
he was a plunging, scrappy halfback on the 
soccer team and in the attack at lacrosse. Despite 
his having won an N in the latter sport, he 
played regularly in every scrimmage at Carvel 
tor three years. 

As franic evidence of his popularity with his 
classmates, Chummie was elected to the Ring 
Committee and Pep Committee and served his 
class well. 

Despite his love for the sleeping machine, he 
has kept his class standing in the upper circle. 
His ready wit and humor have added to many 
rainy afternoon sessions, and make him an excel- 
lent member on any party. 

His ambition is to become an aviator. Several 
of us remember a certain stunt flight at Mitchell 
Field in which Mac was a passenger. Upon 
returning to earth, although slightly shaken up, 
he was heard earnestly attempting to persuade 
the pilot to take him in an outside loop, and let 
him bail out in the middle of it. 

He will be a welcome addition to the Fleet. 
May he have happy landings!

HAILING from the City of Brotherly Love, 
Jack in his four years at the Academy has 
carried on the noble traditions of William Penn. 
Active in athletics and non-scholastic work. 
Thug has turned in an enviable record of how 
to spend four years at the Academy. 

The fight with academics has offered no little 
opposition to Jack's ambitions, but never daunt- 
ed, he has surmounted all obstacles and, by 
perseverance, has maintained his head above the 
academic sea, in spite of the multitude of hours 
put on outside activities. 

A sunny disposition and the ability to make 
friends have made Jack a valued member of our 
class and have helped to make our lives a little 
more cheerful. As a lover, Jack can be reckoned 
among the most faithful. Almost every night 
after chow, he headed the line in the nightly 
rush for the phone booths. The Washington 
operator came to know his voice and the number 
required from years of practice. 

Any attempt to give in detail Jack's person- 
ality, ability and what not, would be far too

"it is beyond the scope of this book." We know 
that Jack will be a welcome addition to the Fleet

WHEN Tommy Long left Sunnyvale, it was 
such a great loss to the villagers that the 
Navy Department had to make amends by giving 
them the new super-dirigible base. Their loss 
was our gain, however, for Tommy is even more 
than a native son. 

A permanently bad knee has kept him from 
doing much athletically, but in other directions 
he has gone far. 

Elected head cheerleader (which in this man's 
Navy is no mean job), he spent many months 
in solid work, so that he could do "flip-flops" 
and "back-breakers" with the best of them. 
Leading cheers at minor events during Second 
Class Year, and later taking charge of the main 
show. Tommy has coxswained the Navy spirit 
successfully and well. 

In his lighter moments he often allowed his 
thoughts to stray to Baltimore. Most week-ends, 
however, found that unnecessary as "the girl" 
then was usually right here in town. 

With his cheer leading, with his studies, with 
a few good books and the monthly "Cosmo," 
and lastly, with his girl, his time has been well 
spent. To the world at large may we present 
"Tommy Long — the great American lover — but 
most of all, a real man and a true friend.

HE IS known as Gees, Gil Bias, and sometimes 
Harold. He hails from a place in Wisconsin 
called Green Bay, at the terminal of a very 
famous canal and he is very home loving. When 
reading the "Gazette" from home, he is oblivious 
of his surroundings. 

He sleeps with a reefer over his feet no matter 
how warm it is and he always likes the windows 
closed. He spends twenty minutes at the wash 
basin every morning, and when with us here 
always worried about whether or not he would 
hit the pap. 

He is mean to the women; he loves them all on 
first sight, and then gets used to them. He would 
like to fall in love permanently but somehow 
it just isn't in him. 

Talk to him about science, philosophy, reli- 
gion, education, or any other subject and you'll 
have to repeat things twice. Mention Carvel 
Hall and he can tell you, at any time of the week,

he hates high altitudes.

THIS young man who is best known as 
Rockie though occasionally as Chico, claims 
his port of origin to be Porto R.ico. He brought 
with him those characteristics which made Spain 
so popular; and, in consequence, is quite a 
ladies' man. His success in these lines has won 
for him the title, "The Great Lover." He trained 
diligently for all hops with a regular schedule 
at the local hostelry. Every year was leap year 
for him — he hasn't missed yet. The localities 
from which his ladies come vary greatly — rang- 
ing from New York and Philadelphia to Wash- 
ington and Crabtown. Like a true Southern 
gentleman, he prefers blondes, brunettes, and red- 
heads. Although he vigorously denied any love 
affair, we know that someone wore his miniature. 
He always took great pleasure in spending 
week-ends as they should be spent. His one great 
weakness was arguing with the profs — which 
was undoubtedly reason for the "trees" he "hit. " 
His favorite pastime was throwing chairs and 
doing eccentric dances. Believing himself to be a 
big he-man he once resorted to boxing, but in 
the course of the bouts let his thoughts wander 
back to the last week-end. Gracious, how that 
man can clinch! He keeps statistics on the laun- 
dry — he saves the fiber collar buttons. His vocab- 
ulary is astounding. His standby of several fifty- 
cent words has won many an argument.

EEMEMBER who won the company sailing

aren't "saviors" but just to see how Charlie hits 
the academics is proof enough that a practical 
mind and a desire for nautical knowledge can 
keep a man in the top sections for four years. 
His ruling passion is not in books — oh no! 
Remember those Sunday afternoons when you 
showed your drag the gym? And didn't she want 
to know who the cute, curly headed boy with 
the broad shoulders was? 'There was Charlie 
spending Sunday afternoons practicing those 
giant swings that helped make him an inter-

Along with his physical strength, Charlie has 
a strength of character and variety of interests 
that make him an interesting conversationalist. 
To us he has been a respected authority at all 
"bull sessions" and the man to make leave with 
in any port. Charlie always knows where to go 
and what to do. 

Although you might not think so, the ladies 
don't bother Charlie a great deal, but that does 
not mean that they do not try. He has an attitude 
that many of the rest of us would like to be 
able to imitate. 

Charlie is one of those individuals for whom

those who know him take it for granted. We 
wish him enjoyment along the way.

THIS flaxen haired son of Rhode Island came 
to us from M. I. T. After drawing whisk broom 
and strong box he wended his way through the 
maze of corridors that is Bancroft Hall and was 
confronted with the problem of how to get all 
of his gear into the one small locker; his college 
training stood him in good stead and he sent 
the surplus to the laundry. Louie soon acclimated 
himself and by the time the academic year rolled 
around he was an old salt. One of the few of us 
that had not left a little girl back home, Louie, 
not to be outdone, soon acquired several, always 
averring that there's safety in numbers. He 
seldom drags but is generally found in the stag 
line at all the Hops and judging from the boxes 
that he receives from Baltimore and vicinity, 
he must have a pretty smooth line. Louie was the 
first man in the class of 1933 to have the class 
seal tattooed upon his broad chest. Tiffany de- 
signed the stencil and "Sailor Yulee" did the job. 
A student of note and a linguist of no mean

and has mastered Portuguese in his spare time. 
His stock of stories has never been known to

VON was born a "snake," a breaker of hearts. 
He is the delight of doting mammas; patron-

and an English instructor once said that he had 
the most liquid line of loquacity ever known to 
flow in a Plebe public speaking class. Sunday 
evenings he sits, chair tilted back, feet on the

the wildest tale of any cruise. His power as a 
raconteur is that of the Ancient Mariner and no 
one has ever caught him up on one of those tall 
stories yet. But who wants to? His yarns are 
too good to doubt. 

During his Plebe Year Von made the goal that 
saved the Navy record of never seeing its Plebe 
lacrosse team suffer defeat. However, after the 
"Dago" Department decided that he should 
leave '31 to join us, athletics have had to yield 
him up to fields of academic endeavor in which 
he has risen to a standing well above mediocrity. 
Von is a polished gentleman, deeply versed

JOE hails from the wilds of the Texas Panhandle 
where his boyhood days were spent in the 
embrace of the great open spaces. Mother Nature 
proved to be a very adept teacher for Joe, which 
is perhaps one of the reasons why he can always 
be founa at the head of his class . After graduation 
from high school and a year's intensive and suc- 
cessful study in mechanical engineering at Texas 
A. & M., Joe yielded to the call of the sea. 

His slow manner of speech is apt to conceal, 
at first meeting, the eager and active spirit that 
lies beneath. Crew was the outlet for his energies 
until the Lucky Bag demanded his time. With a

Joe always has a good audience for his stories, 
and he's never too busy to listen. As for the 
ladies, he says he hasn't time to worry about 
them, but he can always be found counting the

APPEARANCES are deceiving. Texas, "The

whose size is the least part of himself. Perhaps 
the most striking of all his characteristics is his 
energy. This early asserted itself, and Brute is 
the proud possessor of seven "E's" from his 
native high school, including everything from 
football to tennis. 

The gypsy blood began to assert itself and 
next we found Brute in Texas A. & M. Here, 
from his first title of "Fish," he decided that 
something must be done about the denizens of 
the deep, and so the seed which brought him 
here was planted. 

While here he specialized in boxing and put 
some time on tennis and baseball. For women 
he has had no time. To Archie anything under 
five feet is a "forty"; anything over, a "brick." 
He'd rather be an active participant in a bull- 
session than delve into the complexities of steam, 
and always has a pet story on tap. His consuming 
ambition is a brunette, a junior, a fireplace, and 
his own private cellar.

them all but none in particular. On Sunday after- 
noons he could usually be found at the informal 
at Carvel. When duty kept him from a hop, 
Plebes stood from under for a week. 

During the winter season Larry spent the 
afternoons working out in the swimming pool. 
Although a swimmer worthy of a block N, 
he was handicapped by academics. 

He possesses a knack of making friends and a 
personality that keeps them. He is ready for a 
good time at any place and at any time. He gets 
as much enjoyment out of life as possible and, 
unless absolutely necessary, he never let a little 
study interfere with Collier's, Liberty, or Cosmo. 
Some of his reading has been of the more seri- 
ous type, historical subjects and biographies 

A loyal pal and the best friend a person can 
have. That's Larry.

THOUGH hailing from North Dakota, Joe 
couldn't see himself remaining a midwestern 
landlubber all his life, so he entered the Academy 
after a year's preparation in San Francisco. He 
must have received a good foundation there in 
sunny California, for the academics never gave 
him much trouble with the possible exception of 
"Dago." For some of his classmates, who were 
less adept at keeping off the "trees" he has been 
a constant source of help. 

Many of the fairer sex have been attracted by 
Joe's lightly freckled countenance and wide grin, 
but what is more important is the number of 
friends he has made among his classmates and 
shipmates. His dependability, unfailing good 
humor, and generosity have turned the trick. 
These same qualities, along with his love of the 
Service, will make him a fine officer. 

During his sojourn here no particular branch 
of athletics has claimed him. Class lacrosse Plebe 
Year, B-squad basketball Youngster Year, and a 
good game of tennis any time give a partial 
indication of his athletic interests. 

Steady going is perhaps the best way to describe 
Joe, and at the same time fun loving and amiable.

"Spike" "Shorty" 

ON THAT hot Plebe Summer day, when Spike 
doffed his individuality and became one of 
us, we welcomed him for his genial manner and 
ready smile. Since that time, the many of us who 
have probed behind that smile have found there 
a friend of the first water. 

As an old crony of our own Hamilton M. Webb 
— the other '"Spike," — he was all set for four 
winters of leather-pushing; but Plebe math 
slipped in a hard one to the short ribs before he 
could get underway. However, having disposed 
of math, he spotted the boys two seasons and 
started in again Second Class Year. Attacking 
athletics and academics with equal earnestness, 
he has neither given nor asked quarter; and hard 
work, says Spike, is great for the appetite — 
which, in this case bears no relation to the 

His being a confirmed "red mike" makes it 
difficult to account for the flood of letters, candy, 
and cakes that invariably followed his return 
from leave. 

"Who left that shower running? You birds

Spike. With a high regard for his chosen career 
and an earnest ambition to succeed in it. Spike 
will be a '40" shipmate and an officer of the 
best sort.

he is a wizard at "pulling sat." Where others

prime ambition is to settle down in Mobile

Some say they would "walk a mile for a

can never forget. His efforts extended in so many 
directions that a true picture of him can hardly 
be drawn in a short biography. 

A ready smile proved that his only worry was 
the amount available, but in spite of his financial 
troubles he managed to attend all hops and tea 
fights. His presence at these functions undoubt- 
edly proved to be the bane of many a young 
lady's existence, for alas, his affections were 
subject to change without notice. 

Bony seldom hurried. One of his well remem- 
bered phrases was "Tell them I'll be there" and 
he usually was on time. As one of the gifted few 
he gained the coveted velvet with little effort, 
and then turned to help the wooden. 

Although he had no desire for athletic honors, 
he was always ready to lend a hand where 
possible and he contributed to the old Navy 
tight through his work and loyal support. 

He is a true friend and classmate whom we

' 'Champ " " Ferdinand- Jupiter ' ' ' Blouey 

ANEW ENGLANDER, of course, from a place 
known as Whitinsville, Massachusetts. For 
any real dope on the literary center of the United 
States see Champ. 

Champ arrived at the Naval Academy after a 
successful year at Worcester Tech and ever since 
then he has been pushing along in the good old 
Navy fashion with his eye on the Navy, not just 
on the line, but also on the ranks of the sky- 
fighters. Plebe Year held no terrors for him and 
Youngster Year was just an easy life but, of 
course, it didn't compare with good old Second 
Class Summer. 

Champ is right there when it comes to ath- 
letics. His talents are not confined to track and 
cross country, but they extend also to basketball 
where he spends his time during the fall. He has 
won his numerals in basketball and his N in 
track and cross country. We won't attempt to 
enumerate his other numeral awards; all you 
have to do is glance at the back of his bathrobe. 

Before it is forgotten, mention must be made 
of the femmes. Blouey shakes a wicked hoof 
and with all of his other talents the femmes 
can't resist. That might be a rather touchy sub- 
ject but the Champ always manages to get to all 
the hops with an attractive femme. 

By the way, if you ever want any dope on just 
how to get a good tan Second Class Summer, drop 
in and ask the Champ. He knows from experience 
that the roof is an excellent place but it is just

"Dick" "Ike" 

HAVING seen the Service throughout the 
early part of his life, Dick selected the 
Academy as his place of higher learning. 

He had no academic worries. At times he 
claimed that he was "out for blood" in studies, 
and once in a year his name might grace a 
weekly tree. 

In athletics he divided his attention among 
wrestling, tennis, and class football. On free 
Saturdays he took care of visiting teams as a 
member of the Reception Committee. 

He never missed a hop if he could help it and 
frequently he came with a young maiden on his 
arm. When not "snaking" Dick derived immense 
enjoyment out of "looking them over" from the 
side lines. Ask him to give you the "low-down" 
about Washington femmes and on how girls in 
general should be handled. 

Tenacious? Try to effect a change in what he 
holds to and you will find it useless. The hope- 
lessness of arguing with him is disconcerting. 
Practical and thrifty? Sometimes you will dis- 
cover him deeply involved in the pros and cons 
of a nickel purchase at Woolworth's. 

Quite a bit of the active Celt is in his make-up. 
He enjoys sleep and indulges in some "caulking" 
on rainy Sundays. Music, current events, and 
books find him their patron in his quieter hours. 

He is a real friend.

FRUIT!" exclaimed our hero triumphantly, 
and with such a declaration of contempt, 
juice, ordnance, or whatever it may be, was 
discarded in favor of Cosmo. On the infrequent 
occasions when the old 2.. 5 came out ahead, it 
took Alligator as much as half the study period 
to get the dope on a lesson. All in all, he is a 
natural "savior." 

Is he a "snake' '? Gather around girls and listen 
to this. Precio was always willing to take a 
chance on a blind drag. The worst of it is that 
they invariably turned out well. Up until Second 
Class Year, he favored the fair sex on leave only, 
but after that time he was much more consider- 
ate. Form the line to the right, please! 

Is he an athlete? Well, rather. If you want to 
know for sure, ask anyone who used to wander 
over to the soccer field during fall afternoons. His 
abilities were not confined to soccer alone. 

Alligator aspires to be either an aviator or a 
cit, preferably the former. If he's to be an aviator, 
he'll go to Pensacola, while if he turns out to be 
a cit, it's Florida too, so what's the difference? 
Incidentally, a Florida complex coupled with a 
tendency to burst into song constitutes his fore- 
most failing. Optimistic, spontaneous, always 
ready for a bull session — that's Alligator.

Bob has an enviable capacity for hard work 
tempered by an equally ready capacity for play. 
But there is a definite time and place for each; 
a fact of which Bob never loses sight. Study call 
usually found him hard at work and then he 
brooked no interference. Heaven help the man 
who dropped in for a quiet bull-session when Bob 
had decided to find out just what made certain

Bob is also a "snake " among "snakes," and

in his blue eyes. He is, in fact, a veritable young 
Lochinvar who detests his sobriquet of Swede. 

His ready wit, steadfast spirit and thoughtful

SAINT LOUIS lost a very personable young 
man when Rufus Taylor, Jr., decided that a 
naval career should be his. After making his

He loves to sail, and the cruises proved a source 
of great joy, as they enabled him to become 
familiar with the practical side of the sea. One 
of his acquirements most expressive of the sea 
is his eagle, and if you think he isn't proud of it, 
just ask him.

AVERY hot day in July, a late train, and an

As he hailed from Chicago he wasn't quite sure 
whether he'd like it or not, fearing a rather tame 
time was in store. 

Hurdling Plebe Year with the best and at the 
same rime showing the Steam Department how 
their drawings should be made, he skidded slight- 
ly on youngster calculus and found the sea rather 
rough in and about Differential Equations. How- 
ever, undaunted by the spectre of the "Xmas" 
tree hanging over him, his proud boast is that 
he's "made 'em all." And this may be freely 
interpreted, for the handsome boy claimed most 
of the dainty epistles that were delivered to 
his room. 

Smitten by Cupid early in Youngster Year, he 
managed to gather all forces and effect an escape; 
so, he lives to tell others of the charms of the 
"Lorelei" and the means of escaping her. 

With a cheery disposition, a keen sense of 
humor, a line conception of honor, and good 
taste for "Vic" records, he has made a great

years to come.

Salt Lake City, Utah 


FROM the great open spaces of Utah a lusty 
young man came to join us late in the summer 
of 192.9, when the days until Plebes really be- 
came Plebes were numbered. Because of his late 
arrival, his cheery disposition remained unknown 
to us for the most part of the first year, until one 
bright spring morning he led the first section to 
math. From that time on his inordinate "savvy- 
ness" gained for him many hours of assisting 
over the academic hurdles perplexed and amazed 
classmates, which labor he always accepted with- 
out murmur or protest. Attracted early to the 
stronghold of the "rasslers" in Macdonough 
Hall, John ably assisted the Navy squad in 
meeting and defeating the best teams of the 
country. Finding the scholastic program a little 
soft here and there, John was able to "bone" 
the S.E.P. faithfully as well as several other 
periodicals, not to mention the hours spent 
weekly improving upon the Ely Culbertson sys- 
tem of contract. More generous even than 
"savvy," he has made an ideal roommate and 
was subject to frequent calls for financial aid. 
Personable, congenial, prone to practical jokes, 
he has not let the years pass without their 
moments; John has indelibly engraved his name 
in all our hearts.

IT WAS way back in 1 92.9 that Los Angeles lost 
one of its best scholars — and ice men — and 
the grief cast over the city of movies at that time 
(if we are to believe California's most loyal 
supporter) has been evidenced ever since by 
unusual weather. 

Plebe Year passed easily, but an honest effort 
on Tom's part was necessary to appreciate the 
lure of the sea during the Youngster Cruise. An 
inborn attachment for athletics has kept him 
busy every day after drill, either in the gym or 
on the track. But it is not in that field that all 
of his efforts were directed. His high coefficient 
of "savvyness" spurred on by the spirit of com- 
petition has brought stars to grace his collar. 
Rare was the night that didn't see at least one 
anchor section unfortunate seeking the gladly 
proffered help that Tom had always at hand. 
For a person so adverse to the trials and tribula- 
tions synonymous with marriage, he is prone 
to tax Dan Cupid's good will far too greatly. 
From Boston to Panama, from Shanghai to Berlin 
poured in letters filled with honeyed words. 

A terror to the Plebes, a bear with the ladies, 
and the best pal a fellow could have, Tom is 
certain to be admired and looked up to by every- 
one fortunate enough to associate with him.

"The Reds are going to have a classv

his home town, this young Buckeye came to us 
in July, 192.9, to try his hand in the Navy. 

Endowed with a natural "savvyness," he has 
easily disposed of the academics, one by one, but 
not without a self-inspired and self-delivered 
fight talk. Hardly a week passed that he did not 
invoke the assistance of the deities in bringing 
down around the heads of certain profs the bitter 
denunciation of a troubled midshipman's soul. 

Affable, kind, generous to a fault, with a 
passion for writing letters, Walter has gained a 
large group of friends in his career here. Members 
of both sexes respond to the charm of the young 
man's smile and it was a mighty sad day that 
saw the sun set without at least one letter finding 
its way to his desk. 

Athletics are a source of great interest for him, 
with crew getting the main portion of his spare 
hours, even at the expense of missing a reading 
of Dorothy Dix. A gentleman of rare ability and 
forceful character, he has a successful career in 
store for him.

HOW would you know him? Well, he has an 
ambling gait, a long drawn out drawl, and 
it is rumored he is exceedingly sensitive to touch. 

A good friend, a good classmate, and a good 
Southerner, he is amiable to the extreme (we 
have always thought that the Plebes call him 
"Papa Denny"). 

In Kentucky Denny went to Centre College for 
a short time where he was a Phi Delt, vice- 
president of his class and a member of the football 
team. His popularity and ability to lead were 
soon found out at the Academy and he was 
elected president of his class. He is known as 
Jobo, Jack, Kid, or James Beattie. 

Never a scintillating star in academics he has 
confined his starring to the football field. Though 
not the best football player the Navy has had 
there was never a more conscientious one. Next 
to football he likes tennis and track. 

Girls? — he's very indifferent to them although 
Kentucky seems to hold some especial line that 
keeps him close to his home town during leave. 

His ambitions are not known but he probably 
dreams of retiring in Kentucky. 

Whether in the Navy or on the outside he will 
prove himself a good man and a loyal friend.

Being the possessor of a good mind, Dune has

ments. It is well that this was so because he has 
always had to have his sleep. Nine-thirty of

Tommie didn't go out for football until spring 
of Youngster Year, but when he did go out, it 
was with body and soul determination. Though 
he was a bit light on his feet (like a polar bear) 
he was a good linesman who always made the

With his uncanny ability to figure out me-

laboring for hours over each lesson, Hinman

AFTER leaving the Capitol of the Confederacy

Since his arrival Chubby has taken life with a

what uneasy feeling before Christmas of Young- 
ster Year but after finally winning that coveted 
leave he has taken care not to endanger his 
chances of returning to the beloved South at

Feminine conversation and company are one 
of his weaknesses and, although he has been 
guilty of pulling a push-cart full of young ladies 
about the hop floor, his correspondence has only 
one steady direction. 

Chubby has never been claimed by the head- 
liners to be a star athlete but he takes pride in 
keeping himself in condition. Soccer, boxing, and

True, likeable, a desire to do things right, and

"Hey, Moon, ya got any opposition? Let's play

contract, Russ is a capable wrestler, and a scrappy 
one, too; one who hates to be on the bottom in 
any mix-up. That brings up the subject of golf, 
which was his most favored sport when on leave. 

Not particularly interested in absorbing book

problems that arose in everyday life. For instance, 
when the Executive Department was hot on his 
trail, he did some real heartfelt growling, some- 
thing foreign to his otherwise cheerful nature. 
Bull sessions put him in his element. Then he

that he came, we're not certain, but of one thing 
we are certain, it wasn't for money. And inas-

facts, we are also inclined to eliminate love. 
If it was for glory, then Eddie has the attributes 
usually necessary to attain it. 

He has a quiet and unassuming manner and 
accomplishes much without publicizing the fact; 
therein lies our respect for him. 

Academically Eddie was "in the cream." He 
maintained his standing in spite of his activities 
and without undue strain. He took his recreation 
principally in football — until the Executive De- 
partment demanded all of his time — and on the 
gridiron he had the reputation of being clean, 
fair, and a hard worker. That's the reputation he 
carries with him from here and the one we believe 
will follow him throughout his future years in 
the Service.

Saguache, Colorado 


AFTER a year at Colorado Aggies, Shell took 
- a sudden interest in the Navy and decided it 
needed a good sheep and cow expert. So he drew 
a blue-brimmed sombrero and started breaking 
in his cowboy legs for sea duty. We think the 
plaintive low of a cow still holds more thrills 
for him than the monotonous din of an engine 
room; but nevertheless, he has had more than 
usual success. 

Continuing where he left off as salutatorian 
of his high school graduating class, he initiated 
Plebe Year with a 4.0 on the first English exam. 
Ever after, the academics were taken with a 
smooth and earnest consistency. Plenty of time 
was found for other interests — always some sport 
throughout the year which made good use of his 
abilities, and then among the less strenuous 
activities he was a chorister and class representa- 
tive of the N.A.C.A. 

As a roommate, we have found him all that 
could be desired, entirely incapable of being 
irritated, hence sure death to family strife. He 
always had more on his mind than his lips 

No matter what may be the direction of future 
aims, his versatility is bound to bring its reward.

Whitestone, Long Island, New York 


ON JUNE 18, 192.9, another naval career 
opened, as "Speed, the fireman's child" 
climbed to the third deck with two bags of arti- 
cles which he immediately began to mark with 
the name and laundry number of Albert Francis 
Ryan, Jr. The Navy was not entirely new to one 
whose life had been spent in Whitestone, New 
York, on the shores of Long Island, and Al be- 
gan at once to show his aquatic superiority. 
Both over the water as a handler of sail boats, 
and under the water as a water polo player, he 

September of Plebe Year brought no academic 
troubles to Al, because he came well prepared 
with an able mind to which Flushing High had 
contributed a sturdy foundation. Building on 
this foundation has since been governed by the 
art of distinguishing between that which he 
wants to know and that which has to be learned 
for the benefit of the little red book. 

A keen sense of humor, a love of good music, 
and an optimistic point of view are here com- 
bined to form the disposition of a real friend and 
roommate whose only requirements are plenty 
of sleep, regular week-ends, and a ready answer 
to the question, "How far do we take today"?

Danville, Virginia 

"Johnny" "Ty" 

ANOTHER step was taken up the ladder to a 
- brilliant military career when Eagle Scout 
John Tyree laid aside his merit badges and 
donned the uniform of the well dressed Plebe. 
Thus Danville, Virginia, made her contribution 
to the rebel element of the Class of '33. 

Not content to wait for academic work to 
start, John immediately took up a minute study 
of the only book available and since has been a 
strong advocate and follower of the Regulations 
of the U. S. Naval Academy. 

John's progress has been deserved through an 
ambition to become a good naval officer and 
adherence to the principles of industry and thrift. 
Conscientious application has always made him 
conspicuous whether in class room, on athletic 
field, or in the mess hall. His comparatively high 
amount available was always subject to increase 
because of his constant eagerness to place a fifty 
cent bet on a sure thing. Self-denial is easy; but 
neither thrift nor unfinished work has ever 
caused him to deny a fair haired maiden the plea- 
sure of his company on a Sunday afternoon.

Prescott, Arizona 
"Jim" "Whitey" 

10FTY ambitions led Jim Bethea to leave the 
■^ friendly portals of a high school in Prescott, 
Arizona, and later to the Naval Academy. With a 
firm belief in Thomas A. Edison's statement that 
genius is two per cent inspiration and ninety- 
eight per cent perspiration, and working on the 
theory that the easiest way to draw an easy slip 
is to know all the answers, Jim set out to be a 
genius. The stars on his full dress collar prove 
that the inspiration was not lacking. Perspi- 
ration he found to be cumulative, for as section 
leader of the first section, he discovered a direct 
route to the extra duty squad. 

A tendency to cry over spilt milk often damp- 
ened his spirits, but in his lighter moments he 
often laid aside his ambitions and carried on. 
During these spells, he was found to be a formi- 
dable opponent in a hand of bridge or a game 
of billiards. 

Jim would have had no complaints if he had 
had a course of study consisting wholly of 
mathematics, a gymnasium for a regular work- 
out, and someone to wind the victrola for him.

Lebanon, Tennessee 

"Dan" "Dannel" "Barba" 

IN HIS philosophy of life, Dan is always prone 
to accept things as they are and for the better. 
In other words, he is very easily satisfied with 
things in general. 

Coming to us from the little town of Lebanon, 
Tennessee, Norman began his naval career in 
the summer of '19. He had the jump on the rest 
of us for he came with a B.S. from Cumberland 
University. A man, outwardly hard-boiled, but 
showing an attractive personality to those who 
really know him he is indeed a friend of worth. 
Somewhat old-fashioned in many ways, his mind 
is nevertheless as broad as our sea. A bark, a 
sudden hush, and behold it's Dannel. He is not 
a so-called lover, but the ladies find him some- 
what magnetic, because of his interested expres- 
sion during their idle chatter. Verily, a real 
Southern gentleman, he possesses a high temper 
along with the will power to control it. One of 
his greatest hobbies is that of collecting odds 
and ends, and when others search for same, it is 
always necessary to see our old maid, Barba. 

Because of his unerring judgment and adept 
common sense, we know that Dan will make 
good in this old world of ours. 

We're pulling for you, Dan!

Washington, District of Columbia 

"Baggy" "Btng" 

SAY there, matey, how's for a prayer meeting 
tonight"? And the old bridge hound is out 
to run up a few thousand more points. Did you 
ever hear about the grand slam he made in 
Cherbourg? It was characterized by "No savvy," 
but still he held one honor. Get him to tell you 
about it sometime. 

To Washington goes the credit for the produc- 
tion of this brilliant youth, although he is quite 
a self-made man. Personal encounters with the 
Nation's Solons have played a leading role in 
the moulding of this specimen. If you ever want 
to start an argument, simply begin by knocking 
the Nation's Capitol — then stand by. 

Bing has from his youth up desired to become 
a naval officer but now that the "Battle of the 
Baritones" is in full swing, he feels that he 
should do justice to his public. 

The ability to make friends and to draw them 
closer to him is a remarkable feature of his pleas- 
ing personality. He is always willing to do his 
utmost when called upon for any favor or duty. 
"Mirthful Baggy is certain to win 
Hosts of friends with his good-natured grin, 
'Tis a smile-spreading spasm. 
When he opens that chasm 
That splits his nose from his chin."

Pocahontas, Arkansas 

"Pick" "Lud" 

PICK may not be Arkansas' favorite son but 
his favorite stomping ground is the razor- 
back state, of which he is duly proud and which 
he upholds with all of his youthful enthusiasm. 

The first impression Pick gives one is that of 
being perfectly satisfied with everything and 
vividly interested in it. He loves to rant on 
about how the Academy should be run, or on 
politics, finance or any other issues which may 
interest him. He takes a firm stand and backs it 
to the limit. 

His first ambition was to be a lawyer, but the 
sea interceded, so he compromised and became a 
sea lawyer of the first water. 

He has a keen sense of humor and is always 
ready to take a hand; be it bridge, feminine or 
what not, preferably feminine. With one of 
someone else's "skags," someone else's match, 
and the latest "sweet nothings" of love from 
the current sweet thing, he spent many dreamy- 
eyed hours in reverie. 

Pick is Navy throughout and the ship that 
gets him will get an officer who has a manner 
of meeting every situation with ease and positive 
results. With his ideals, intellect, individuality, 
interest, and integrity, he should land safely in 
the port of success.

"Sam" "Pat" 

SAM came to us from the Lone Star State by 
way of North Texas Teachers and Hall's War 
College. He is fun loving by nature and is always 
ready for a free-for-all of any description. A war 
whoop, a flash, and there's Pat in the thick of 
the fight. In spite of his enormous capacity for 
play, he has that rare quality — a well balanced 
sense of proportion; and he knows how to buckle 
down to work when the academic going gets 

Sam seldom dragged, but when the spirit 
moved him he was always able to show the 
sweet young things just exactly how it should 
be done. 

A double misfortune befell him at the end of 
Plebe Year, in the form of a skirmish with the 
Steam Department, and also an illness which 
necessitated his making Youngster Cruise in a 
wheel-chair at the Naval Hospital. 

An inveterate bridge player, an ardent sports 
fan, and a lover of good music, we must admit 
he is a man of parts. 

Pat has his faults but he is a Navy man all 
the way through. In short, he's a man you'd be 
glad to call your shipmate. 




San Antonio, Texas 

WHILE crossing one of the numerous plains 
of Texas in December of 1918, Ed was 
temporarily blinded by a wind storm and was 
lost for several days. It was during this period of 
his life that he decided to learn Navigation to 
prevent another such occurrence. As the Navy 
has more navigators than any other profession 
he selected it and arrived at Annapolis via 
Marion Institute. 

After entering Annapolis Ed had to struggle 
with the Academic Departments, but his per- 
sistence outweighed their barrier and an observer 
of the cruise of 1930 would have found him 
scrubbing the Utah's decks along with the other 
youngsters. The amusements of Paris and other 
foreign ports were thoroughly enjoyed; the name 
'"Alcazar" still brings back happy thoughts. 
After Youngster Cruise Ed began life as a mid- 
shipman and took every opportunity to play 
the role of a "snake." 

This man had one pet hobby, and that was 
finding "feed-backs" on the tower of Mahan 
Hall while playing the role of a member of the 
Juice Gang. 

Ed has an ambition which will be an asset to 
the Service, and that is to wear the Navy Blue 
and Gold with wings. We sincerely hope that 
he is not disappointed.

Cisco, Texas 


JUST a Texan, calm, reliable, carefree at times, 
and a darned good roommate. After deciding 
to see the world he left Texas A . and M . , ventured 
forth into the East, donned works and hat, and 
with the rest of us learned to roll his trou from 
inside out and to pull an oar. Determined to be 
a true sailor he continued to pull an oar at crew 
practice; and to line up the sights on the range. 

A man of "red mike" habits, slightly addicted 
to "pogybait" and sleep, he learned on the 
cruise the error of his ways. Now, the mere 
mention of Hamburg brings a wistful look to 
his eye. One thing led to another in the succeed- 
ing years until "available " as applied to his 
week-ends, became a dangerous word. 

Always easy going he waged war persistently 
with the "ac" department, playing no favorites. 
However, the end of the term usually found him 
able to bone Cosmo and get in those extra hours 
of shut-eye. 

Being endowed with the ability to make the 
common place amusing and with a spirit of 
determination, he'll make a good shipmate for 
any assignment. He will meet life as it comes 
to him and will make a success of it.

"Ray" "Rosy" " FuZZy" 

FROM the state of steel mills came this son 
of the Middle West to see if the U. S. Naval 
Academy was all that it was supposed to be. 
After four years residence beside the Severn the 
answer still seems to be a bit uncertain. 

A little phrase, "Was she a honey"? and you 
have amply described one of Fuzzy's chief inter- 
ests. It is an interest which, although somewhat 
hampered Plebe Year, has grown rapidly since 
then and decidedly removes him from the ranks 
of those who glory in the name of "red mike." 
Although we would not call him a "snake" 
(the Navy gigolo), yet he was a familiar figure 
at the hops in Dahlgren Hall. 

The "femmes" are not all Fuzzy uses his eyes 
for and he has had little trouble locating the 
bull's eye in a target as was indicated by the 
insignia on his right sleeve. 

Here is a man who regarded academics only 
as a necessary evil. Though sometimes speaking 
of "bilging," he has always had his "velvet" 
with him and the academic departments well 
in hand. 

Take a cheerful person always ready to lend a 
hand in work or play who faces the facts of life 
as they come, and you have our best description 
of Fuzzy.

Henderson, North Carolina 

"Mike" "Dodo" "W.A." 

A RAY of sunshine finally broke away from 
the lure of moonlit evenings in Carolina to 
settle down for a quiet stay on the Severn. 

Dodo's military experience began at Fishburne 
Military Academy, and later continued at 
"Bobbie's War College." In spite of this pre- 
liminary training he insisted on spending part 
of his Plebe and Youngster Years with Miss 
Springfield, at extra duty. 

Although the academics occupied a great part 
of this young man's spare time, Mike was 
greatly interested in wrestling and football. He 
spent many afternoons in the gym and out on 
the field with the class football team. In the 
spring and summer tennis was to be his favorite 
form of exercise. 

Running true to the Southern style, Mike is 
well-known for his humor and hospitalitv. Even 
through the trying experiences of making the 
"two-point-five," a smile and good word were 
always present. Such characteristics are undoubt- 
edly the secret for the acquiring of a host of 
friends, including many of the fairer sex. 

Dodo has all the qualities of a gentleman and 
an officer. It is certain that he will be a welcome 
addition to the Service. 




Milwaukee, Wisconsin 

■'Waliy '-Wendit" "IV.F.A." 

WALLY is mighty proud to call Wisconsin 
his home and he is a true son of the North, 
tall, handsome and silent, except when there is a 
subject on which to argue. Then he is at his best, 
making frequent trips to the library for proof 
of his contentions. 

Wendit early heard the call of the shell and 
his stick-to-it-iveness brought him increasing 
success from Plebe Year on. Studies never troubled 
him. He took them in his stride, always staying 
in the first quarter of his class and improving 
with time. 

Waldemar found little time to devote to the 
ladies and steadfastly made claim to the state 
of "red mike"; however, evidence is at hand 
to dispute this. 

He is a man who is not quick to make friends, 
but one who retains them once made. 

He has been the best kind of roommate, ever 
ready to lend his shirt and listen to troubles with 
a sympathetic ear. Good luck, Wally!

"Elmo" "J.E." "Jimmie" 

WHAT a man! — a "Show me, I'm from 
Missouri" fellow. He left the scenes of his 
adolescence to do a little showing on his own 
part and on that of the Navy. Jimmie entered 
well prepared and "in the know" concerning 
military life, thanks to the R.O.T.C. 

Some difficulty was encountered in warding 
off the "trees" which were in luxuriant growth 
Plebe and Youngster Years, but with his usual 
tenacity and down-but-not-out spirit, he came 
back in a whirlwind finish. 

Elmo is endowed with a voice. When not 
talking he is singing. He holds the position of 
being the crooner of his class, and is only a 
step away from competing in the baritone 
crooner's war. It is undoubtedly his unusual 
ability to yodel sweet popular love ballads that 
makes him a "snake" and a handy man with 
the fairer sex. 

He has been an ideal roommate though always 
disagreeing on everything either for the sake of 
argument or just to be "ornery." 

A sense of humor, a highly developed gift of 
repartee, and above all a good fellow — such is

man. When Ted left Ohio to become one of the 
small spuds in this man's navy, Kent State Col- 
lege lost a permanent smile. 

Like the rest of us. Peanut has had his share 
of the ups and downs of Navy life, and while the 
ups have seldom carried him to the first section 
in academics, he could always be relied upon 
to come through when the downs were most 

At the start Ted was not much of a "snake," 
although he had a weakness for the fairer sex. 
Nature took its course, however, and now it 
looks like ye olde drye docke is making prepara- 
tions for another customer. 

During the winter Ted kept pretty busy keep-

SAM has been with us earthly beings since 
spring of 191 1. Legend has it that he was 
born with a marlinspike in his hand, but we'll 
not go into that. Of one thing we are certain, 
and that is that Sam would rather have had a 
T-square in his grasp instead. 

The General surely did fight a hard battle 
with the Steam Department, but during Second 
Class Year he finally won an undisputed decision. 

Lamar doesn't dream very often. He's a regu- 
lation "red mike "; but, at the same time, a 
dyed-in-the-wool tea hound. There isn't a good 
movie that he hasn't seen, nor are there many 
no-soap ones that Sam has missed; and, much 
to our dismay, a radiator always looks better to 
him than the mud on Farragut Field. 

Sam's pet ambition is to own a general store 
and garage somewhere in rural \'irginia, where 
he can swat flies with one hand and fan himself 
with the other. 

It has been nice to have Sam for a friend be- 
cause he could always break out the skags or let 
you have fifty cents on jaw-bone terms; in fact 
he could do anything for you except drag blind.

ATYPICAL Irishman, and proud of it. That

Irish he is full of extremes, and life never runs 
smoothly for him. His head is either in the 
clouds or his feet are touching rock bottom. 
He is always either deliriously in love or an 
avowed "red mike." If he is swearing off all 
women today be sure that tomorrow you will 
see him with the prettiest drag at the hop. 

His heart is as warm as the sun. His last cent 
is yours for the asking, but he had to be watched 
closely and urged frequently or he invariably let 
the twenty-fourth of each month slip by without 
putting in a requisition for the needed family 
soap and skags, and yet, mystery of mysteries, 
his amount available was ever the lowest in 
the room. 

Plebe Year he secured in January and made a 
point five in the steam exam, going unsat for 
the term. During the next two months he showed 
his real stuff mastering the intersections of this 
and that so that he passed the re-exam with a 
near forty. That was his last serious encounter 
with academics. This quality of producing the 
goods when necessary is a marked characteristic 
of his. Coupled with his facility for making and 
keeping friends it augurs extremely well for his 
future, in whatever business or profession he

WE HAVE never been able to find out just 
what Harry's occupation was before he 
decided that his life was to be devoted to the 
Service, but whatever it was it must have been a 
strenuous one. His favorite pastime is to wrap up 
in a blanket, place his feet on the bed, put a pipe 
in his teeth and day dream for hour after hour. It 
is this position in which we usually found him, 
even the D.O's, much to Harry's discomfort. 

His favorite sport is tennis and as soon as 
weather permitted, Harry showed surprising 
speed in dressing and running out to get a court. 
On Sunday afternoons you could always see him 
on a predetermined heading bound forthevillage. 
Ain't love grand? 

Versatility should be Harry's middle name. 
When occasion demanded he knew how to bone, 
but more often he would afterward show that he 
knew all of the fine points of the well-known art 
of sleeping. 

As a classmate and friend he has no equal ; mak- 
ing and keeping friends is in reality one of his 
hobbies. His generosity, cheerful smile and good 
nature are ever present qualities in his make-up. 
Once on the warpath, however, Harry is sure to 
let "all hands" know that he is around. Deter-

CONSIDERING the fact that he lived during 
the early part of his life in a house which 
looked out upon the Statue of Liberty, it seems 
logical that Charlie should have chosen the sea 
for a career. 

Youngster Year he made an unpremeditated 
two weeks cruise when he ran afoul of the 
Executive Department, but that has been his 
sole criminal act so far as can be ascertained. 
His chief activity has been managing the gym 
team. He is fanatical on the subject of daily 
workouts, believing that without them a man 
must surely die. 

Perhaps his most outstanding characteristic is 
his phenomenal memory. If you can't remember 
the name of the tall, light haired youngster of 
the fourth batt who bilged out Plebe Year, 
Charlie will not only tell you his name but also 
the subject and the mark that "got" him. He is 
not listed as a "savoir" chiefly because of an 
aversion to study, yet when he does apply 
himself results are always forthcoming. 

True blue; always ready to laugh at a joke

build with surprising strength (attested in many 
a scrimmage), engaging looks and pleasing man-

camp songs and brightened the cell with them. 
He is neither a "snake" nor "red mike" but

"Sound off, Mister." 

"Paul Christopher Cronin; New Jersey, Sir." 
"What are you famous for?" 
"Putting salty pork in Campbell's pork and 
beans, Sir." 

THUS Paul jumped from one salty profession 
to another, but not before he had put in two 
profitable years at Villanova. During those form- 
ative years he acquired his love of the sea by fre- 
quent visits to Atlantic City, but it is to be con- 
fessed that he seemed quite glad to see "terra 
firma" at the end of Youngster Cruise. 

Yes, he's Irish, fighting Irish! You would 
believe it if you had watched him at baseball 
practice some afternoon, sat across the table 
from him while he was digging out a math or 
steam lesson or tried to study or read when he 
and Grady got together over some question that 
smacked off the Irish. 

His ready smile and hearty laugh, his sense of 
humor, his willingness to lend a helping hand, 
his super ability to dig in and stick to the job 
when the going gets tough, make him a very 
valuable man either in or out of the Service.

Golden City, Missouri 

"Bob" "Maggie" "Mac" 

WHERE do you get those questions? No, 
we never plant wheat two years in suc- 
cession in the same place, and we don't raise 
succotash in Missouri." Such is one of his 
answers to many of the questions put to Dob, 
who is an energetic representative of the "show- 
me" state. He is ever ready to give the boys from 
the city a tip. We found him an efficient time 
user and on rainy days one was apt to find him 
in the steam building producing products of his 
own design. In fair weather he used to be seen 
on the soccer field where it is true he worked 
hard for one of Doc Snyder's famous "Hot soaks 
and opium." Although not a renowned "snake," 
Second Class Summer found him dunking with 
the best at the week-end tea-dances and it was 
seldom that he could not be found dragging to 
hops. Endowed with the national gift formaking 
friends, due mostly to his ever ready smile and 
"Sure, I'll do it" attitude, he has placed himself 
on the roll of the esteemed. 

If Bob decides to return to his old haunts in 
Golden City, the Navy will be the loser.

"Boh" "R.B." "Gump" 

OUR hero was born and bred in New York 
City, where they hold those Army-Navy 
football games. In spite of this handicap, Bob 
has succeeded in making a name for himself here 
as a "real guy." It is his good fortune to get 
along easily with academics, but occasionally 
an exam slips up on him and leaves a vague 
resentment that justice has strayed away. 

With over three years as a "gyrene, " Gump 
joined us Plebe Summer well equipped to make a 
name for himself in athletics. Because a broken 
ankle in wrestling Plebe Year and again in 
football Youngster Year kept him from fame, 
he has been sadly tricked by fate. 

Not to mention Bob's affairs of the heart 
would be to leave a great deal unsaid; Youngster 
Year found him a confirmed "snake." Since then 
he has been among those seen on the world- 
famed race track at Dahlgren Hall. The secret of 
his success with the ladies is yet to be learned. 

As a companion Gump is the best ever. Try to 
equal his flair for inventing interesting liberties. 
Happy, prankish, non-reg, and thoroughly like- 
able at all times, he has made us receive him as a 
true friend since the beginning of Plebe Summer. 
We have no doubt that Bob will enter the golden 
portals of success in any undertaking.

"Chub" "Floyd" 

IF IT weren't for dago, I'd like this place. " 
So says our Floyd, the handsome cavalier 
from Portage, Wisconsin. After the Academic 
Department almost bilged him Plebe Year, Floyd 
discovered the secret and proceeded to make his 
next three years here pleasant and profitable — 
with the accent on the former. 

Though hard on plebes this gay, irresistible 
youth was popular with all; take a good look 
at that picture and you'll see just why the fair 
sex can't keep away from him. Girls, preferably 
one at a time, are his main diversion. We cer- 
tainly envy that natural aplomb and technique 
that shatters the feminine hearts. 

Floyd is all for the Service, his burning ambi- 
tion being to feel a quarter deck rolling beneath 
his feet. Uncle Sam certainly found a zealous 
partisan when this young man left the farm and 
decided to go to sea. 

In his quieter moments Floyd is a cross- 
word puzzle fiend and an avid reader of novels. 
Whatever happens, don't mention swimming to 
him! Three years of it on the sub-squad have 
filled him with unpleasant thoughts. 

All in all, Floyd is a real Navy man, and we 
predict a great future for him in the Fleet.

THE big Swede from Minnesota — the class 
won't soon forget him. Who could, after 
seeing one hundred and ninety-seven pounds of

sing? For those who have never had the privilege 
of hearing his vocal attainments, be it said that 
when he "hooks 'em together" the result is truly 
amazing. Perhaps he will best be remembered as 
the only man in the class who, in our Youngster 
Year, won a place in the winning Poughkeepsie 

If one word were to sum up his ambitions, 
activities and hobbies for the last four years, 
"crew" would be the word. However, his inter- 
ests have not been entirely devoted to rowing. 
His extensive and intensive affairs of the heart 
are well-known, and the crew squad knows that 
he attributes his success to the inspiration of one 

More seriously, his friends have come to know 
him as one man who rarely asks a favor, but one 
who is always ready to help a classmate; as a

character. If these attributes mean success, he 
will go a long way.

"Clint" "Tiny" "Charlie" 

CLINT is an idealist who is never satisfied 
with the present. His chief delights are 
picking flaws in text-books and advancing new 
theories on naval subjects. Consequently he has 
found the dago, nav and English courses quite 
irksome, but steam, juice, and ordnance have 
opened unlimited fields to his imagination. In 
fact so engrossed does he become in his pet ideas 
that it is reported he once found himself on the 
drill field with neither belt nor bayonet. For 
diversion Tiny goes in for athletics, and, after 
trying cross country and boxing Plebe Year, he 
became an ardent supporter of light weight row- 
ing. During his first two years in the East, he had 
little time for the fairer sex, but one Christmas 
leave while visiting in Washington he met the 
"perfect" O.A.O. After that he trained the 
assistants to deliver his mail as soon as it reached 
the deck. 

Although most of the class have found Charlie 
quiet and unassuming, yet anyone who made 
liberty with him on the cruises has a much difi^er- 
ent opinion. By his thoughtfulness and unsel- 
fishness, he has made many close friends through- 
out the Regiment, who will look forward to 
meeting him again in the fleet. His love of a 
good time combined with his natural curiosity 
and willingness to share any task will always 
make Clint a desirable shipmate.

"Ked Label" "Gyp" "Jim" 

JIM boasts of coming from next to the largest 
city in the world. It was quite a change from 
the outskirts of the metropolis to the confining 
walls of the Naval Academy. Now, however, he 
does no more than the usual amount of complain- 
ing. Aside from that he is nonchalant, refusing 
to take life seriously. Sometimes he is cynical 
and sometimes quite radical. He likes to put "red 
eye" on mashed potatoes and other dishes with 
which it is not supposed to be used — hence his 
nickname "Red Label." But he is honest about 
it, making no attempt to conceal his likes or his 

During the early half of his naval career Jim 
was a confirmed "red mike." His immunity to

Though he may not stand one in academics,

JAVA is as well-known around the Academy as

Since Java came to us from the Service, he has 
weathered all storms of the Academy life but 
more than once has threatened to leave us; each 
time he came out on top. Not withstanding this, 
he has been able to tolerate three roommates. 

Java has two bad habits. One of these is his 
ambition to become one of the worlds greatest

more about stamps than the whole Postal De- 
partment in Washington. It is certain that he 
could always make a livelihood in this w^ay if 
he chose to do so. His other bad habit is also a

organization of the Masqueraders called the 
Stage Gang. The nicknames that he has received 
do not go amiss, for most any evening after drill,

"Mac" "Jig Jig" 

SOMETIME in the past, one of Mac's ancestors 
kissed the Blarney Stone. Since then, the gift 
seems to have been handed down as a family heir- 
loom, for we always find Mac ready for a "bull 
session." Almost any subject will do, but he is 
interested mainly in aviation, automobiles, sail- 
ing, classical music, philosophy, the Mills 
Brothers, the clarinet, and the latest from Arthur 
Murray's salon. 

Return from leave usually found Mac in love 
again, but with the beginning of "ac" year, he 
put all this behind, and became a "red mike." 
Except for some unfortunate experiences with 
the Math Department he has never been troubled 
by "trees." However, he does not believe in un- 
alleviated "boning." When it's a choice between 
an exam next week, and an afternoon on the 
Severn, Mac usually takes the river. 

In sport, Mac concentrated on one each season. 
In the fall, he could be found on the class foot- 
ball team, while in the spring, he was usually 
busy on the track. From Christmas until the 
Ides of March, Mac became a permanent fix- 
ture at the pool's edge. This came under the head 
of managing water polo. 

Mac has been an ideal roommate, always ready 
with a dissertation on the mysteries of naviga- 
tion or the confidential secrets of a "what's it," 
valve. Last but not least, Mac always had his 
own shirts and socks.

Washington, District of Columbia 

WHEN Dick relinquished his early ambi- 
tions he was ready to carry out the duties 
of a naval career with the attitude he always 
meets every duty: to do it well. Although he 
refused to admit deep concern as to whether 
steam is superheated one degree Fahrenheit or a 
thousand degrees Centigrade, he has shown the 
same application to engineering subjects as to 
languages and the social sciences. He has the ut- 
most respect for knowledge combined with an 
acute power of reasoning and a keen memory. 
His regard for reading good books and for study- 
ing has demonstrated his mental ability, while 
his extra-curricular activities have demonstrated 
his practical ability. 

Changing environment has left Dick with a 
Southern respect for authority and honor, a Mid- 
dle Western perseverance, and anEastern standard 
of culture. A commendable amount of reserve in 
Dick's character has allowed few to know him. 
This reserve has been the result of an exacting 
standard of manners and living peculiar to one of 
good tastes. The Academy training has embedded 
more firmly in him that quality which took root 
in his early years : punctiliousness. His friends are 
true frinds, for to be his friend one must sympa- 
thize with his belief that a man's word is his

SOME people can best be described by their 
beliefs; Jim is one of these people. 

He does not believe that many existing cus- 
toms are good, and is ever ready to contend that 
the majority is always wrong — some people say 
that he lives to disagree. Although his friends 
are legend, his conception of friendship is that 
one has few real friends, and although he thinks 
that one should respect one's fellowmen, and be 
a gentleman, he does not believe that a certain 
amount of ichthyosaurus ego is not good (Atten- 
tion! James and Powys). 

In spite of his disbelief in the acceptability of 
many modern practices he is dogmatic in his 
social relations. He contends that he cares noth- 
ing for society except that relationship with 
people whom he considers well-bred; he is a firm 
advocate of good manners and good speech. Jim 
is sensual in his enjoyments of literature and the 
world in that he attempts to gather from his 
various experiences what he calls "the good 
things" this world offers. To that end we shall 
expect him to always be looking in his books and 
his travels for all that the world has to offer to 
please him. We wonder what success he will have.

"Burt" "Brownie" 

JUST above you see Burt.one of North Dakota's

State, this man decided that the school on the 
banks of the Severn was the place for him. He 
packed his bags and proceeded to this noble 

Since he has been here, v^^e have learned many 
things concerning him. His attributes are many. 
He knows what he ought to do, but he never gets 
it done; neither does he get a chance to do that 
which he wants because fatigued over his exer- 
tions between doing that which must be done 
and that which he wants to do, this man drops 
off to sleep. 

Burt likes good music, classical preferred to 
popular, good literature, and the study of nature's 
creations. His philosophy on life is a neat and 
well-ordered view taken only after a careful and 
thorough study of himself. 

Plebe and Youngster Years saw him pretty 
much of a "red mike," but Second Class Summer 
proved his downfall. After that you could never 
find him around the hall during liberty hours. 
His interest in the fairer sex lay just outside

a mighty good man to know and to have about. 
Above all he is — a man.

SHORTLY after La Grande High graduated

potential powers, the wide expanses of the sea 
called him. After forsaking home and state for the 
Navy, opportunity knocked — and soon a consci- 
entious though unconcerned candidate strolled 
in to an Academy career. 

The same unchanging, practical, business-like 
attitude that has always been his, helped him up 
the ladder to business manager of the Log. An 
ability to view in perspective, a thorough me- 
chanical background, and a lot of good logic 
and common sense make academics no "bete 
noire" to him. 

Temperance in all things is his unwritten and 
unspoken motto; everything receives its allotted 
attention. Even the fairer sex cannot monopolize 
his time — though there is one who bids fair to 
outdistance the others. He enjoys reading any- 
thing and bends a willing ear to the strains of 
good classical music. Although he generally evi- 
dences a quiet, unassuming, and sober mien, a 
warm heart and a cheerful disposition lie beneath 
the surface. To know him is to admire him.

IF you should ever get into an argument with

cerning the femmes, he would try to convince 
you that he is a "red mike," but we know differ- 
ently. His return from Second Class Leave stands 
as proof that this sea-lawyer has more than just 
a passing interest in the fairer sex. 

Whenever anyone makes a statement, Tommy 
contradicts it for the sake of seeking an argu- 
ment, but never will he become angry. No one 
has ever seen him without a smile and any diffi- 
culties which arose during his career were mere 
incidents to be overcome. 

As to his interests and ambitions, they are as 
widely varied as could be possible. He wants to 
be an aviator and to learn to play the piccolo; 
likes to save old newspapers and read them when 
several months old; collects all the junk he finds 
(insists that it will all come in handy sometime); 
works continually on a model airplane which he 
never seems able to finish.

a real friend, and an admirable classmate.

pined when Bob left the home camping grounds

the oath that bound him heart and body to the

plainly evident by his varied participations. Any

Bob was there with a ready hand and the neces-

It seems that his weakness for "shes" is not 
confined to ships either. He tried to make us be- 
lieve that he was a "red mike," but Second Class

As a roommate you couldn't ask for better. 
Always ready to help and scrupulously tidy. In 
our opinion, just a little too sincere. Extremely 
conscientious, he is ever endeavoring to do the 
correct thing, and life is a matter of grave con- 
cern to him. 

Bob's interests are wholly with the Service and 
we expect and wish for him a brilliant career in

JO set out in the world at a tender age, leaving 
highsc hool, home, and orange-blossoms, to 
seek his fortune. His wanderings led finally to 
the Navy, and thence to the Naval Academy. 

His rather non-conformist philosophy bears 
the mark of the independence of his younger 
days. He is inclined to be skeptical, and is happi- 
est in the midst of an involved discussion on some 
serious subject. A weakness for argument is nice- 
ly tempered by a subtle sense of humor and a con- 
stant good nature. 

Jo is an ardent follower of athletics, for health 
and physique are important items in his credo. 
Wrestling claims most of his time, for aesthetic 
reasons, he says. He vows that he is a faithful 
misogynist but has been known to weaken when 
a blonde hove in sight. His fundamental inter- 
ests seem to lie in good music, poetry, and the 
desultory reading of serious books. Jo is a dream- 
er at heart, too. Says the height of his ambition 
is retirement to a little farm in some wild spot 
overlooking the sea, there to enjoy the blessings 
of a simple and quiet existence. Perhaps he seelcs 
beyond mere academics for beauty and happiness.

"Dick" "Cope" 

MALDEN was the center of Dick's early activi-

tensely interested in scouting, and camping. 
After finishing high school in 1916, he spent two 
years on the State Schoolship, where he was 
honor man in his class. A third mate's papers, 
four months on a coal ship, and a wealth of

Curtis School and Kent School prepared Pete

ping decks on a tanker swayed Uncle Sam to snap 
up his services after a creditable year at Severn 

Discrimination is probably the word describ- 
ing Pete's acquisition of friends despite his un- 
limited number of acquaintances. A general cross 
section of the man would show mechanical abil- 
ity, constancy, restlessness, provoking power of 
concentration, lack of sentiment, fierce loyalty

cern for anything not interesting to him, and 
common sense. He is care-free and congenial, and

Pete is a good all-around sportsman having

roommate has been calling him for the past four

be exact, and we have heard him expounding 
the merits of his home town on various occasions. 

The Professor is one of these practical minded 
men who knows what he wants and sets out to 
get it. His only vice is an inherent liking for the 
ladies. He seldom missed a hop and then only 
when he had the duty. He also has a weakness 
for sentimental music to put it mildly. Just try 
some on him about three days before leave, and 
watch that far-away look appear in his eyes. 

A certain bantering manner characterizes the 
Professor's contacts with his friends — he's al- 
ways ready to slip in a bit of humor or some sly 
sarcasm. He's not averse to a good argument and 
can usually hold his own when he becomes in-

from the shores of Buzzard's Bay and liking the 
surroundings, had decided to stay. Burt's devil- 
may-care attitude won for him a high place in 
the eyes of all who knew him. His efforts turned 
the tide for Navy in many a swimming meet, and 
class soccer and lacrosse teams were not complete 
without him. Plebe Year found him a terrible 
"red mike," but since then he has blossomed 
forth to be quite the young man about town. He 
prefers brunettes but a blonde will do in a pinch 
and his admirers are many. Jeff always believed 
studying to be an unnecessary evil but has never- 
theless fooled the "ac" departments at every turn. 
Ask a man who has had one. It takes a damn 
good man to make a good roommate. Burt was 
all of that.

"Jim" "Bits" "Ted" 

COMBINE a ready smile, a curly head of hair 
and a fine sense of humor and you have a 
fair idea of Jim. 

Jim followed in the footsteps of two older 
brothers and just had to make good. Having thus 
heard of Crabtown and her four walls, he must 
up and see for himself. Sure enough there was 
such a place and thus did the Navy gain another 
man from the land of able seamen. 

As for sports, wrestling was his long suit and 
for a sandblower, he could throw them around 
with the best of the fly weight class. However, 
if there was a party to be planned for a team to be 
received he was on the job in a minute. 

Easy going, he hasn't a care in the world ex- 
cept his studies. Plugging kept him above that 
1.5, but at times he lapsed and another good man 
was on the "tree." Those that have known him 
and followed him along, since that day some 
years ago, realize what a fine shipmate we have 
amongst us. A spare moment for anyone and al- 
ways a helping hand — a born mixer, he is wel- 
come everywhere. Taking his fun where he's 
found it, he's always ready to pass it on.

IKE came East because he heard that the Navy 
was a good field for romantic dalliance, but 
now he claims that he was misled. Once here, 
the academics intrigued him, and, never much 
given to a full evening with a text-book, he got 
his first Christmas leave Second Class Year. He 
still feels good about the time he got up in the 
fourth section! That same inattention to the 
books we drew from the store cost him renown 
in soccer and basketball and put him in those 
teams that pay no heed to the "trees." 

His philosophy of "get enough to secure" and 
his readiness to sit back, hoist his feet and rem- 
inisce or speculate have made him a pleasant 
roommate. A ready smile and a quick sense of 
humor make his company always enjoyable, and 
the girls just love that light wavy hair. Ike gets 
his letter a day and brags not a bit about it. Who 
knows, maybe its the way he plays a hand of 
bridge ? 

He's a quiet lad, this tall boy from what he 
terms "God's year around resort," but that 
same quietness reacts in his favor and it's a 
lucky ship that will claim Ike, for he'll give it 
all he's got.

"Mick" "Eddie" 

REMEMBER the tall, square-shouldered Irish- 
- man who made so much noise in the first 
platoon of the Fourth Company way back in 
Plebe Summer? That's the Mick — a man's sized 
man with a large amount of good humor that 
can explode suddenly and violently into some- 
thing closely resembling a fair sized tornado. A 
carefree chap with an easy air of self-confidence 
and a good word for everyone. 

Mick had more than a little trouble with the 
academics until he hit those subjects which apply 
particularly to the Service; after that he consis- 
tently took 'em for a ride. The Executive Depart- 
ment too, has had a word to say here and there. 

Plebe Year saw Mick out on the river, show- 
ing the lads how a man handles an oar. He also 
put in a good bit of time over in the gym swap- 
ping haymakers with Spike's tough boys. Both 
sports suffered on the occasions when Mick had 
to take time out for communion with Tecumseh. 

He doesn't say much about his affairs of the 
heart, but the mail continually brings evidences 
of what he could do if he had the time and the 

Whether stretched out on somebody's bunk 
telling the boys how it should be done, standing 
a mid-watch on the bridge, or taking Paris or 
Hamburg by storm, you will find that Mick is 
one of the boys, a man's man, and a sea going 
one at that. 




Portland, Maine 

JACK came to the Naval Academy from Port- 
land, Maine. He realized early the athletic 
value of his new surroundings and from the first 
week of his Plebe Year he began systematically 
to train his body. Although he had no salient 
school career behind him, he fitted himself to 
row with the "javees" at Poughkeepsie in 193 1, 
and to be elected soccer captain for the 1932. 
season. He possesses an aptitude for water polo 
that the requirements of winter crew practice 
have precluded his developing, but he has used 
it to advantage in the murderous Sunday after- 
noon games of the inter-class competition. 

Jack's interest in naval matters is confined to 
aviation. He meets philosophically the irksome 
incidents of the midshipmen's routine because 
he realizes that they are just so many obstacles to 
be overcome before he can go to Pensacola for 
flight training. 

Without once obtruding himself, but rather in 
an unassuming manner, Jack has won a place in 
the esteem of his classmates; whence he comes, 
what are his ambitions, his hobbies, his inter- 
ests, who are his "drags," are of inferior import- 
ance to his value as a personality. That one has 
abided with a man during four impressionable 
years of one's youth, realizing that he possesses 
the inexpressible qualities of the perfect room- 
mate, is after all, the most important announce- 
ment to be made concerning him.

Medford, Massachusetts 
"Red" "Mike" "Mac" 

IN Medford, Massachusetts, he early conceived 
a desire to enter this Academy. With his 
accustomed scholastic ability, Mike didn't find 
the accomplishment of this ambition difficult. 
The rigors of a Plebe Summer indoctrinated him 
with another conception of his former desires. 
Nevertheless, Plebe Year found him first bending 
his efforts toward strengthening a class football 
team. Spring of that year allowed him to earn 
numerals in track. Ensuing years made manifest 
his inclinations in the realm of athletics. 

With the "academics" he merely did just keep 
up his interest. The greater part of that course 
was spent in outside study — the pursual of which 
has gained for him a really remarkable knowl- 
edge. Curiously, his interests run to the medical 
rather than the military. Consequently, his path 
in the future will take him from the Service. 

Foremost of Mac's personal traits appears a 

Eeriodic disposition to mirth-provoking. This 
y far does not exist incessantly for that post 
week-end depression occupies the stage in its 
time. Nevertheless, by varied and subtle means 
he can be depended upon to move one to laughter. 
He has slipped occasionally to indulge a discreet 
interest in a "drag" or two; such steps, however, 
ultimately have been tactfully retraced. And thus 
four years!

As a student he has had little trouble for he is

It is, however, as a friend that Leo does best. He 
is a good listener and has little to say, but when

evidence of the fact that something has been 
said, and understood by all hands. 

Leo looks forward to a career in the Marine

of that organization. We wish him the best of 
luck and are confident of his success at any task 
he chooses to undertake.

"Bill" "Archie" 

THERE is no one who has been a contempor- 
ary of William Archibald Kengla who has 
not been able to recognize him by his hearty 
laugh. When you hear a big roar over in the far 
corner, you know "Wild Bill" is there. 

Coming to us from Washington, D. C, the 
nearness of his home to the entrance of Bancroft 
Hall only increased his desire to accomplish 
what he set out to do. His determination and the 
doggedness with which he tackles any difficulty 
have won admiration and respect. Plebe Year he 
gave the first exhibition of these characteristics. 
In the first skirmishes with the Academic De- 
partments they were quickly apparent. By 
Second Class Year his hard work of the preced- 
ing two years began to pay dividends. He has one 
ambition — success in anything that he under- 
takes — and someday his tactics will bring even 
greater results. 

Blessed with the courage of his own convic- 
tions. Bill's frankness has won him many friends. 
When leave rolls around he concentrates in a big 
way on having a good time. He looks forward to 
a career in the Marine Corps, and without a

in hand. 




MoRRisTOWN, Ohio 

' 'Charlie ' 

CHARLES is everything that a real shipmate 
should he: a hard worker, a genial disposi- 
tion that always puts up with the worries of 
those about him, and a "stick-to-it-iveness" that 
has carried him high in the academics and in 
extra-curricular honors. 

Charlie comes from the old "Buckeye State" 
and spent quite a bit of his roommate's spare 
time with fond reveries of the leaves that he 
spent in dear old Ohio. We've about decided that 
there must be something to the place after all for 
as soon as leave starts he packs up and shoves off 
for home with that far-away look in his eyes. 

Academics have always been "fruit" for Char- 
lie, although, the femmes have troubled him odd 
times — but never too seriously. Although he is a 
"snake" so far the O.A.O. hasn't appeared and 
perhaps way down deep in his heart he may be a 
true "red mike." He says he's just holding off 
' till the right girl comes along and then look out ! 

As you leave the Academy this June and Severn 
days dim to memories, Charlie, the whole bunch 
salute you — the best of luck — always.

EARLY in Plebe Summer Phil joined us with 
little knowledge of the Navy and things 
naval. But after two years at Norwich Univer- 
sity he was well prepared to hold his own in 
the daily battles with the academics. However, 
Second Class math presented some difficulties 
which he finally overcame and thereafter he has 
had little trouble. 

He excels at letter writing and the day is rare 
indeed that he does not write at least one and 
rarer still is the day that he does not get one. As 
for his other interests, he found time to take an 
active part in Log and Trident work in spite of 
his desire to sleep during study hours. 

A glance at his locker door was enough to 
assure one that Phil's tendencies differ from those 
of the traditional sailor. There were several 
photographs there, it's true, but they were all of 
the same girl. It was these pictures which in- 
spired those mighty letters and those hours of 
work when he had to "pull sat." 

Phil is a true, loyal, and helpful friend, and 
whether it is on leave in Paris or a "bull session" 
in the room we liked him. Now that our four 
years together are over we wish him the best of 
luck either in the Service or out of it.

Kauffman, Texas 

"Jake" "Doc" 

DOC hails from Texas, land of cotton and 
cockle burrs, but he can ride the waves 
just as well as he can ride a horse. 

Nobody can tell you when they have seen 
Jay not in the mood for studying; he really 
enjoys it. His hobby, by the way, is the develop- 
ment of an extensive vocabulary, and his ambition 
centers about the subject of radio. 

Jake claims to be a "red mike," and certainly 
plays the part well, but his locker door doesn't 
back him up. However, we will say that he has 
been true to the girls back home. 

As a friend Doc covers all specifications. He'll 
go a long way for friendship's sake. You can 
borrow his collars, handkerchiefs and stamps 
until his eyes water, but never a word will he 
say and, when you need a dollar on the week-end 
before pay day, who is it that saves the day (and 
week-end?); Jake is the answer to that. 

Jay's most outstanding characteristic is his 
ability to get out from under in academics. He 
always makes it a point to understand the whole 
thing or nothing. 

Doc has never had but two worries: how long 
before chow? and how many days? He doesn't 
smoke, he plays a harmonica and likes battleship 
chess and bridge. Doc admires Kipling and

100KIN' for Daisy? Well yuh hear that hog-

Second Class Summer, George has been first fiddle 
of thirty-three's collection of music murderers. 
Just give him his violin and a big black cigar and 
he is ready for an evening of pure contentment. 

On week days, George is an ardent "red- 
mike;" on Saturday nights, though, he turns 
just as ardent "snake" and never misses a chance 
to trip the light fantastic at all the hops. Now 
here's a tip for the girls: — George will make a 
perfect husband. He is neat and orderly and 
doesn't ever have to look under the bed for his 
collar buttons; they just don't fall out. And al- 
though we have sorely tried his temper at times 
when we played the same record on the "vie " 
until both the record and the "vie" were worn 
out, we just couldn't make him lose his sunny 

Here is where we have to dash the ladies 
hopes with a bit of cold water (sea water) for 
Daisy's one and only love is the sea. His book- 
shelf is piled high with accounts of the days of 
wooden ships and iron men, and he can tie more 
knots than a Boy Scout. His ambition is to make 
a cruise on the Constitution. This may be 
accounted for by the fact that she has no boilers. 
At any rate, when Idaho lost a native son the 
Navy gained a real sailor.

GARRY was formally introduced to the Navy

years, which helps to explain his variety of 
homes and his wide spread group of friends. As

his circle of friends through various agreeable 

As we first met him, he was the same, rather 
bewildered plebe as the others of us were, with 
the same desires, doubts and perhaps a few less 
delusions. With a show of reserve and stamina 
he sustained the first year and cruise and acquired 
the initial "diag" in a most satisfactory manner. 
Longer acquaintance exhibited his lack of pre- 
tense and unassuming air that invited further 
friendship and showed a decided affability. 
Youngster Year, perseverance and tenacity of 
purpose were essential and were not lacking 
These were followed through the summer with 
the social graces and liberty making requisites 
for the occasions. The last two years seem to 
have widened his interests and have proved him 
an asset both to his classmates and to our Navy. 

Thus it is with our sincere commendation and 
appreciation that he goes forth from our four 
years' home on the Bay.

WITH an unfaltering and an unhesitating 
stride, Red set out for the Navy, the sea 
and the air, and since it seemed a necessary inter- 
val, the U. S. Naval Academy. If he has become 
slightly disillusioned, slightly cynical about the 
sea and the air as represented by the Navy, and 
the Navy's innumerable texts "prepared for the 
use of the Midshipmen of the U. S. Naval Acad- 
emy," and if his inner self is wont to yearn at 
times for the hills of Western Pennsylvania, he 
clings steadfast to his original purpose, confident 
that somewhere out beyond Greenbury Point 
there is really an honest-to-goodness ocean. 

One of "Morgan" is needed in every gathering. 
Gifted with an inherent sincerity, he is bound by 
his ideals to sift out the false, the immaterial 
from any set of circumstances and accurately dis- 
cover the things worth while, and real. With 
this quality goes an inherent ability to supply a 
party of any kind or description with that laugh- 
ter which makes it hurt to go home. 

Practical, steady, and thorough, Morgan will 
with unrelenting pressure, force opportunity's 
sometimes reluctant "knock" and having ad- 
mitted that welcome visitor, will grasp success 
in a firm hand clasp.

"Jim" "Ish" "Tail-frog" 

OUT of the rolling hills of Indiana came Jim, 
to take his place as one of the inmates of 
our "Big House," in the pursuit of knowledge 
and a career in the Navy. 

Academics, dago excepted, have never pro- 
vided an obstacle he could not easily surmount, 
and his willingness to help others has saved 
many a "wooden one" from joining the great 
and growing horde of unemployed. Jim is gifted 
with his full share of determination and usually 
accomplishes what he sets out to do. Observant- 
ly, but not apologetically quiet, he is apt to get 
"riled" and past performances have proven that 
he is seldom wrong. 

A versatile athlete, he preferred to concen- 
trate on track, where each spring we found him 
striving (but not too diligently) to bound over 
the "terra firma." 

Jim is fond of oranges, is greatly interested in 
Russia and revolutions, and keeps a weather eye 
on the mail. Incidentally, he receives plenty of 
same, and a goodly number have that faint, yet 
unmistakable feminine perfume. 

A better friend and more loval supporter could 
not be found, and out in the Fleet he will make 
the type of officer which makes our Navy the best 
and biggest fraternity in the world. 

Good luck, Jim!

"Ken" "Count" 

10NG ISLAND is a large place, at least, you 
J would judge so from the young men it 
produces, but for all that it was not large enough 
for our friend Kenneth. At one time his high 
ambition was to be a successful mechanical den- 
tist, but such life was not for his type so he began 
searching among the more romantic professions. 
Naturally, the Navy found him and certainly it 
would not be the same without him. 

Nonchalant, carefree and with academics as 
the least of his worries we would expect him to 
be the perfect companion he is. A novel and a 
"Cosmo" provided the proper setting for any 
evening, but the O.A.O. was periodically the 
center of attraction. Being "non-reg" has always 
been his weakness, but aside from a few demerits 
he has suffered but little. 

In athletics he will try anything once, but he 
finds greatest pleasure on the track. There we 
would find him working diligently each spring. 

Should he not, with these qualifications, make 
the Navy a better place in which to live? We 
think he may and we are all glad to have such a 
gentleman in our midst.

AND here, ladies and gentlemen, we have a

that has made good , and if any one person can get 
along with as much letter writing to the fairer 
sex, and as little academic education as this tall, 
dark, handsome brute does, life should be no 
great problem for him. 

Quite an outstanding member of the well- 
known Hellcats was our Joe — he beat a wicked 
drum. Later though he divided his time between 
the xylophone and the drum; so now it seems we 
will have quite a musician in our midst before 
so very long. 

Academics have never been able to keep Joe 
awake nights or cause him to let down on his 
correspondence — which, believe me, is a load for 
any assistant to lug up from the post office. 

All in all, our boy is one grand guy, always 
willing to lend a helping hand academically and 
otherwise, Joe holds an enviable position in all 
our hearts and it is he to whom we turn when 
we say, '"Here's how."

IIFE at the Academy held no mysteries for

and he had nautical slang for every occasion. 
After jumping around from place to place, Larry 
finally settled down at Kent School to prepare

Larry's particular fetish is weird haircuts. 
Ever so often he returns from the land of falling 
hair and scissors looking as if he had been chas- 
ing Indians who had turned against him. 

Usually one who has a trend towards litera- 
ture never succeeds as an athlete, but Larry has 
fooled the public again in this respect because he 
seems to be the exception which proves the rule 
since he stroked a smooth lightweight crew as 
well as writing an occasional poem.

A LOVE of adventure and an insatiable desire 
for something different led the president of 
a South Dakota High School to leave the plains 
to try his hand at a sea-going life. "Sailors don't 
care, sugar." 

Lew is a man of many contradictions — natu- 
rally easy — going to work night and day for 
months to pass his re-exams; although usually 
rather quiet, put him in the coxswain's seat of a 
shell and you can hear him a mile away, com- 
pletely dominating men twice his size and mak- 
ing them like it; ordinarily a man with a good 
disposition he will probably throw the glue bot- 
tle at you if you speak to him before he has 
brushed his teeth in the morning. Good looking 
in a masculine sort of way and a wonderful way 
with the ladies, it has never gone to his head. 
His highest ambition is to be an automobile race 
track driver. His secret passion is taking anything 
apart from watches to victrolas and making them 
work — maybe.

of a man whose personality has made the Acad-

FARGO surrendered this stalwart son in the 
summer of 19x8 when he went to Marion

had much since. While he didn't slight boning, 
he considered it worse to neglect going out for a 
sport. Football and crew were his pastimes Plebe 
'Y'ear — crew being the favorite. He still talks 
about life at Camp Ingram and the Poughkeepsie. 
Second Class Year, he went in for wrestling in a 
big way — so big that he made his letter. No 
sooner had he thrown his last man than he was 
out on the river pushing water past a shell. 

You can't call Otto a "red mike," for he 
"dragged" after Plebe Year a couple of times. 
His array of sports seemed to keep him quite in 
training most of the time. He did manage, how- 
ever, to frequent the hops and to make or renew 
the acquaintances of others' "drags." Thus his

emy, an ambition of early youth at Culver. 

His activities were numerous and varied. Ath- 
letics were of some interest to him, for in the 
fall one would invariably find him playing soccer 
or running cross country for the company or 
class team; the spring months were spent in 
playing tennis. The N.A.C.A. had him as one 
of its leaders; the Lticky Bag took up many spare 
hours. It remained for music to have the greater 
claim; the hours that meant liberty in Crabtown 
were utilized by Mac in filling the chapel with 
melodious airs on the pipe organ. He is equally 
as skillful on the piano, being one of the main 
supports of the Musical Clubs. 

He was an habitue of the hops, always accom- 
panied by a fair damsel and never once "bricked 
by a blind drag." 

Although his interests were many, studies 
were of prime importance. His serious nature 
does not deprive him of a good sense of humor, 
and friends that are close to him will be lasting

' 'Joe " " Uncle Joe " " Chief ' 

IT WAS not because Joe lived by the sea nor 
because his grandfather was in the Navy that 
he came here; he merely thought it a good thing 
to do at the time. His inspiration has been a 
great boost to all those hide-bound members of 
the radiator club who love a good story and a 
good natured debate. Joe has identified himself 
with those liberals and free-thinkers who much 
prefer digging up a dust covered, moth-eaten, 
book in the library or reading an article dealing 
with sociology, politics, or world conditions to 
studying the next assignment in seamanship. 

Joe comes from that beautiful and tolerant 
state of Louisiana and he has always loved to 
scoff at the liberal East and its blue laws. He 
will defend the political and social conditions 
of Louisiana against all comers. 

If Joe remains in the Navy he will make an 
excellent officer because he never fails to come 
through in a pinch. He is an ideal pal to go 
ashore with whether it be to visit the Mont- 
marte or attempt to an Annapolis tea room 
on a Saturday evening liberty. He has an even 
temper and a generous heart and he has been a 
sympathetic roommate.

TOE COOK and the Evansville Elks Club are 
u not the only products of Southern Indiana. 
This charming locality is also responsible for 
G. Thurston (Gee, I'm thirsty) McCutchan, 
whose nautical aspirations were developed on 
the banks of the Ohio River; while watching 
the hourly ferryboat churn its wobbling way 
toward Henderson, Kentucky. 

Since the beginning of his naval career at 
Annapolis, Mac has governed his actions by the 
idea that the fruit of life is experience and not 
humdrum contentment. Hence, instead of being 
a regulation potential striper (usually a most 
contented type) he has been a participant in 
numerous fantastic scrapes. 

So far, women have played only a small part 
in his life. Recently, upon being questioned 
concerning his regard for female character, he 
solemnly stated that women possessed only one 
art; that of dissimulation, which statement 
proves that he was either born a "red mike," 
or has had a thwarted romance; the latter con- 
jecture probably being true, if one is to judge 
from reports of his Paris experience. 

Mac has been a mediocre athlete, preferring to 
struggle with Schopenhauer rather than with a 
football or a lacrosse stick. However, he has had 
average success with the track and cross coun- 
try squads. 

May he have more than average success in life!

"Lock" "Lochinvar" 

THERE are few people capable of accepting 
good advice and fewer still who are able to 
use it to their advantage. Elliott seems to be a 
notable exception. For after having set course 
and speed for West Point with every chance of 
making a fair landing, Brother Joe turned the 
trick and persuaded him to join the ranks of 
Uncle Sam's "spoiled and pampered pets." It is 
well that such was the outcome for now that 
the show is over, it is with ill concealed pride 
that we view his performances. 

Plebe Summer he proved his superiority in ten- 
nis to all that could be mustered in an effort to 
down this young upstart. Later in the year the 
eyes of all the critics were opened wide as he 
assumed the role of high point scorer on the bas- 
ketball court. Those concerned mingled in the 
belief that there was no limit to his abilities, nor 
were they far in error as evidenced by the fact 
that his success in both sports was and is the 
standard by which others of like ambition are 

Any attempt to prophesy Elliott's bright 
future would be superfluous because he has 
already established himself as the ideal class- 
mate which in itself, covers the ground.

II VE and let live" — no better exemplification 
■i of this philosophy can be found than in the 
person of Sam, who has acquired a record and a 
reputation that bids fair to be unequalled in the 
near or far future. Sam, as he is known to every- 
one, is a sincere devotee of the Tecumseh; not 
because of necessity, but because of that irre- 
sistible desire to sleep — sleep — sleep. ' 'Juice' ' and 
seamanship, ordnance and dago, all would be 
neglected until the last possible minute and then 
a quick flick of the pages and all was safe for 
another month. 

There was a reason for Sam's existence as you 
might guess and it was found in his athletic 
achievements. Possessor of an admirable 
physique, and a carefree disposition, Sam soon 
made himself known in many branches of sport: 
football, wrestling, and lacrosse, with football 
as his best love were outstanding examples. 

Potentially of the very best, lack of ambition 
has kept Sam from reaching the heights in both 
academics and athletics but as a friend, a com- 
panion, and a loyal supporter, none better can

MANY a gloomy day has been transformed 
by a cheerful smile from the chap who 
greets you from the picture above. It was a 
fortunate stroke of fate that caused him to give 
up boots, spurs, and West Point for the Navy. 
Perhaps the sunny San Joaquin looked so much 
like a beach that he just naturally took to 
the sea. 

Characteristics: common sense, perseverance, 
a tendency to translate thought into action, a 
winning way, and a smile. In the fireroom, in 
the turret, or freezing on a North Sea mid- 
watch, we never saw him sour. 

Football, boxing, wrestling and gym, were 
among his athletic efforts. Another of his big 
interests was rifle and pistol, having tired on all 
of his company teams since Plebe Year. 

Outside the Service his chief interest isliterary. 
Besides trying to write books himself, he spends 
lots of time reading. He has an appetite for the 
philosophical and feeds it well.

MAC received his incentive for the pursuit 
of a naval career by sailing boats on the 
waters of Saginaw Bay. At first he planned to 
become a lawyer, but then decided it would have 
to be a "sea lawyer" if anything. As a result 
politics lost, while the Navy gained a scholar 
and a gentleman. 

Mac received his Plebe Year indoctrination 
in the Third Battalion. He then acquired a weak- 
ness for Italian and moved over to the Fourth. 

"Anything to help a friend," is Mac's motto, 
and many a classmate has taken advantage of 
his kind nature to swap a hop or week-end watch. 
He preferred movies to hops and invariably re- 
turned from town Saturday nights bearing a 
package of peanuts for his more "snaky" room- 
mate. His heart breaks to see others on the rocks 
academically, and many a plebe has profited by 
his helping hand when the going was rough. 
History is his favorite type of literature although 
he does read everything else from Edgar Wallace 
to Tolstoy. 

Sincere in friendship, high in ideals, Mac is 
the kind of a shipmate that makes a man think 
more of the Service.

"Jim" "Colonel" 

ONE can say no more for this smiling young 
gentleman than that he is an honest-to-God 
rebel, an unblemished son of South Carolina. 

Upon graduation from the local high school 
with the highest obtainable honors Jim indulged 
in a little preparation, both in academics and 
military tactics, at the Citadel before making 
the decision to give the Navy a break. 

Right from the start, Jim had ambitions to 
continue his prep school work on the cinder 
path. Things were decided differently for him, 
however. A few bad breaks, tough competition, 
and a love for skags left him right in the presid- 
ing chair of the Radiator Club. And as the 
Colonel doesn't believe in doing things halfway 
— he could always be found with the necessary 
Chesterfields and the latest and best fables on tap. 
Ask Jim what sort of a chance the first liar has. 

The "acs" never proved troublesome and Jim 
could be found almost any night in a horizontal 
pose beside a closed book. 

Jim became adept immediately at knowing 
when and where to follow the little brown book 
and still be one of the boys, and therefore has 
had little of the daily publicity. 

Social tendencies? Beaucoup! The reason for 
same being inaccessible, he has confined himself 
to a good turn now and then. 

Fair weather and good sailing, Jim Boy!

OHIO lays claim to be the background for 
this versatile young man — our Bob. A 
desire to venture afar in new fields and to have 
the world for a playground caused him to be- 
come one of those who seek fame on the sea. 

It is said that youth is naturally sanguine and 
is likely to build castles in Spain; not so with 
Bob, that is, not the castle part. He's more of a 
realist than a dreamer. By that we mean, that 
he doesn't believe in "blind drags" who turn 
out to be 4.0's, and such things as six months 
leave twice a year, or fairy godmothers who 
see that everyone gets his two-five at the end 
of the month. Did we say two-five? Oh, no, he 
wouldn't be content with that alone. As proof 
we exhibit his star for Second Class Year. 

To understand Doc you must know him well. 
If he is interested in something, this interest is 
radiated in his speech and actions. If he is not, 
he is not, and that is final. If he wants a thing 
it is a pleasure to see him get into action. 

He is a true "red mike," plays a good hand 
of bridge, has a ready wit and tongue, and can 
fill anyone's shoes at our famous after-dinner 
gatherings of the Radiator Club. 

Here's luck and hearty wishes for the future 
from your classmates, Bob.

"Bob" "Mac" 

OF ALL the close - cropped, fuzzy - headed 
plebes that entered upon a naval career 
during the hot summer of '19, Mac was one of 
those few who came here with a definite purpose 
in mind. He has carried on since then for four 
years, never failing to keep this resolution. The 
academics have been met with and his efforts 
have been well repaid. A glance at his activities 
listed below will show that Mac's interests are 
greatly diversified. Of these interests track has 
been his greatest delight. From the time the day's 
work was done Mac lived and breathed track. 
Constant effort developed him into the outstand- 
ing broad jumper on the Navy team. 

A true Southern gentleman, he believes that 
nothing can compare with the ladies of Dixie. 
With the evidence on his locker door it was not 
hard to see why he felt that way. 

Although you can't bum skags from Mac, he 
will always be remembered as a friend. No mat- 
ter what the circumstances, if anyone is ever 
in a tight spot Mac has never failed to come 
through. Always considerate of others and al- 
ways doing his best, he is a man whom everyone 
likes to call a friend.

WHY he's the biggest man that hails from 
the big woods. Yep, he comes from the 
great ship-captain producing country where boy- 
hood tales aroused his love for the sea. In order 
to attain his ambition, a command on the high- 
seas, he sought a naval career and began valiantly 
by winning a competitive examination for en- 
trance to Annapolis. 

In the Academy he sought those attributes 
which lead to a success as an officer. He did more 
than his part in promoting the athletic standard 
of lacrosse and wrestling, and his efforts were 
revealed in the starring caliber of the teams with 
which he worked. His abilities as an adminis- 
trator and executive are shown in the Academy 
activities he conducted. 

Shep's heart and generosity are as big as his 
body. He's always ready to stake on anything, 
even "drag a brick" when he knows what's 
coming. He says anyone can drag a pretty girl 
but it takes a good man to "drag a brick." 

Some day you will see a big man on a big ship, 
in a big Navy, known as Shep, a fellow who 
lives for the Service and one who has everybody 
for him. That's Shep.

ALTHOUGH it was with difficulty that he 
- succeeded in giving up his native Kentucky 
for the'Naval Academy, he has found the mid- 
shipman's routine to be entirely in accord with 
his own desires and his own ways of life. 

Because of the fact that he possesses a mind 
which is intensely practical rather than aca- 
demic and which favors "juice" and steam to 
math and "dago" he has been led into obstacles 
which have always been overcome by diligence 
and hard work. The most notable of which, and 
the one which has made a lasting impression, oc- 
curred during his first year when, by the aid of 
considerate upperclassmen, he was able to stem 
the tide. These later years of technical study and 
of subjects purely naval in their make-up have 
enabled him to effect a record that makes Plebe 
Year a laughable memory. 

Though athletics and extra-curricular activi- 
ties were subordinated to other interests he will- 
ingly gave of his time and abilities to whatever 
he deemed worth while. Characterized by an 
unaffectedness and reverence that can be traced 
only to his early years, he has since added to 
these traits those characteristics that qualify one 
for a highly successful career as a naval officer.

FROM the Great West and the Silver State 
hails Tommy. Versatility being his watch- 
word, he left the sagebrush to take up a life 
on the seas in the service of his country. An 
adventurer at heart, his greatest delight is 
visiting new places, meeting new acquaintances, 
and experiencing new enjoyments. 

Tommy is characterized by his sunny disposi- 
tion and sense of humor, and although he tries 
to get angry at times his smile always betrays 
him. Ladies do not seem to interest Tommy to 
any great extent, but occasionally we find him 
expressing his liking for a certain girl. 

While not an outstanding athlete he is above 
the average, and is especially fond of swimming 
and track. A typical Westerner, his hobby is 
horseback riding, and he spends a part of leave 
each year on a ranch for the purpose of learning 
the cowboy's art. His two pronounced ambitions 
are "wings" and a command — to this end we 
wish him success. 

Possessing the powers of concentration and 
good reasoning ability, he never worried about 
being unsatisfactory in his studies. Thus he was 
able to devote time to reading books, fiction and 
non-fiction, profound and otherwise. He was 
ever willing and able to help a classmate and 
at all times we found him a true friend.

In athletic and non-athletic activity, as well 
as in academics, his efforts are characterized by 
energy and perseverance. He has been an out- 
standing swimmer since he entered, and he would 
have found himself equally successful in other 
sports if he could have been persuaded to go out 
for them. 

Studies gave him little worry. He "boned" 
enough to keep well up in the upper half of his 
class and let it go at that. 

Dick divided his leisure time sometimes wisely 
— sometimes foolishly. He was often exceedingly 
carefree and susceptible to periods of laziness, 
although they were not frequent. 

We are envious of Dick for he is one of the

out of the Naval Academy course. We predict 
an excellent future for him.

His urge toward the sea must have come from

occupied himself with the Trident Society, so 
well in fact, that he progressed from being a

BILL'S grand passion is anything mechanical; 
his specialty is gasoline engines, and as for 
automobiles . . . ! If you get him started on the 
subject of Studebakers, don't say we didn't warn 
you! In steam he was always in there fighting, 
and when it came to ordnance, among other 
things, he was no slouch either. 

Bill doesn't care much for movies, except the

after arduous and painstaking effort, he com- 
pleted his product and so far, has lived happily 
ever after.

which volumes could be written. Even we, who

FRITZ is one of the "volunteers" from the 
wilds of what he thinks is ' 'God 's country, 
Pennsylvania. From there he came to the Acad- 
emy via the Navy, which made him one of the 
salty few Plebe Summer and Plebe Year. 

Upon entering his room, one usually found 
Fritz deep in a book (not text books; perish the 
thought), or writing a letter. An omnivorous 
reader and constant writer, one might think his 
studies would suffer, but happily such is not the 
case. Academics are to him a necessary but unem- 
barrassing evil. But when it came to the Mas- 
queraders, well now, that was different. Since 
Plebe Year, Fritz has been one of the old guard 
holding forth in Mahan Hall, and no production 
was considered complete without him. "I live 
for my art." 

On the social side, Fritz is the most leonine 
of lions. He is an expert "yard engineer," and 
the social functions of Maryland's gay capital 
invariably find him present. 

Fritz's anathema is anything mechanical, and 
his favorite indoor sports are playing bridge and 
making puns. Aside from these defections he is a

to forget that one doesn't bid farewell to class-

the cold winds of Milwaukee gave him his

giving also the knack of absorbing book learning 
with minimum effort. Speed of thought and a

WHEN the old Mississippi began to creep

quiet port. With such purpose in mind he bid 
farewell to his Phi Gamma Delta brothers and 
left the University of Tennessee to embark on 
his naval career. He is a very conscientious South- 
erner in all respects. This trait, to most of us, 
would be a blessing, but when so successfully 
applied to the science of making countless 
friends, impressing the most unimaginative of 
profs, or attempting to see how far it is humanly 
possible to jump without touching the earth, it 
is nothing but the easy accomplishment of a 
Southerner. Stan's cheerful and carefree nature 
conceals a most serious mind. It was with the 
gravest of thoughts that he penned and received 
numerous letters from equally numerous friends, 
assumed the deep responsibility of showing an 
ever increasing number of unenlightened "drags" 
the glories of Crabtown, and still found enough 
serious moments to study most diligently. A 
more intimate discussion of the subject is far 
beyond the scope of this book. 




Kennebunk, Maine 


TO THE lair of old Tecumseh from the rock- 
bound coast of Maine. If you don't believe 
it ask him to pronounce "tarts" or "Bar Harbor." 
Aside from that what can be said about a man 
who has no vices? Since his first days in Bancroft 
Hall, and even at Schadmann's for that matter, 
his philosophy of life in general has been one of 
live and let live. Academics have been an ever- 
present hazard, which is just another way of 
saying that here we have a person with a serious 
purpose and with the will to do the job at all 
costs. There has probably been a girl in the offing 
and she can consider herself very fortunate. Being 
a lover of the out-of-doors it is not surprising 
that cities, and all that the word connotes, find 
no place in his heart and he is seldom seen at 
hops or "tea fights." 

Adding to all this a rugged physique, a smile 

which is always there or just arriving; an almost 

fanatical love of fair play, and just a touch of 

the old-fashioned for a background, you will 

arrive at the foregone conclusion — a stout fella!

FROM Chicago's north shore to Harvard is 
one thing — from Harvard to the Naval Acad- 
emy is decidedly another. With Schadmann's 
in Washington as the intermediate step he cast 
his lot with '33. Mess-hall, Battalions and the 
Regiment took the place of Commons, Clubs 
and the Student Body, and the new game was on. 
He has been outstanding because of his quiet, 
temperamental nature, and this quality has 
secured friends of the real caliber with whom 
long conversations and arguments are a hobby. 
His interests have always been divided between 
music and sailing, but the former has proved 
to be a love rather than an interest — a love for 
good music. In practices for the Sunday morning 
workouts and the numerous recitals he has found 
real enjoyment and as a result of his efforts chapel 
goers will long remember his rich tenor voice. 
Academics have been a servant rather than a 
master; in every undertaking he hasdistinguished 
himself by an ability to see through the super- 
ficialities and to get right down to brass tacks. 
These efforts perhaps broke the storm clouds 
which appeared one year, passed on and left no 
scar. A unique philosophy is his: life spread out, 
stripped of illusions and studied, remains a 
happy adventure.

BACK in '2.9 a man left Springfield, Massachu-

Academy. This was one dark haired, handsome 
young man at whom any fair maid did well to 
look twice — and they did. 

The ultimate goal in view was a commission 
in the U. S. Navy, but at times it seemed a bit 
doubtful if it could be accomplished. Neverthe- 
less, dogged perseverance kept him up, in spite 
of what the "ac" department did to get him 
down. Whenever in the hole one month he 
invariably bested the opponent and came out on 
top the next. 

Studies rather kept him from active athletics 
but at those times when the "velvet" was plen- 
teous and deep you could always find him on 
the class football team or engaging in a good 
game of anything. 

A solid courage in his own convictions which 
generally were right, with a good sense of humor, 
a serious frame of mind, yet one which fully 
appreciates the lighter things in life, and a 
natural handsomeness should aid very materially 
in creating a true officer and gentleman of H.S. —

Each November he emerged from the society

Year found him at the natatorium helping to

cent looking youngster from the wilds of North 

At the slightest mention of the unfair sex, a 
smile unfolds his cherubic countenance and he 
whirls himself in a series of elfin dances. His 
room is a shrine wherein are originated the 
latest steps. 

Lady Luck has handicapped him as far as 
athletics are concerned in the form of a "trick 
knee" acquired Plebe Summer. However, in spite 
of that hindrance he spent most of his winter 
afternoons struggling around on the mat in the 
wrestling loft. 

While the Academic Departments presented no 
grave obstacles to him, Plebe Year excepted, his 
natural savviness didn't get a fair chance to 
exhibit itself. It's easier to get him to stop 
studying than to get him started, for he is a 
firm believer in Ben Franklin's (?) "never put 
off till tomorrow what can just as well wait 
till next week." 

In parting, let us remark that patience is his 
greatest virtue — he bore up under his co-habi- 
tant's harassing for four years.

CLIFFORD came to us from the West Coast 
(the Garden of Eden according to him) with 
ambitions to become a naval officer. He early 
professed to be a woman hater and we believed 
him until he began spending his Christmas Leaves 
in North Carolina. His dreamy look and his 
occasional "you all, " lets us know that she is 
well and happy. 

In Clifl^ we find a true lover of all sports. Per- 
haps, you remember this tall dark haired boy 
seeming to cover a whole basketball court at 
once or giving his best on the mound for the old 
Navy nine. At other times, he was found ex- 
hibiting a mean stroke in the natatorium or 
playing tennis with the ease of a veteran. 

The "Dago" Department offered him no little 
trouble during his Plebe Year. After that, he got 
maximum marks with minimum effort. 

Cliff is one of these reserved fellows, but when 
you get to know him he is true blue — you can 
count on him to the last. All in all, he believes 
in doing a job well and finishing it on time. This 
along with his likable personality insures him a 
successful career in his chosen profession.

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 
Dutch " "Shorty" 

A LUCKY 13th of June found a young man, 
from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania — the land 
of milk and sonny — within the gates of Bancroft- 
by-the-Bay and eager to start the battle for leave, 
liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Needless to 
say these have been attained, as has everything 
else to which this tenacious follower of the doc- 
trine of common sense really put his mind. An 
even disposition coupled with a doggedness and 
thoroughness of action have placed Dutch 'way 
in the van as a pillar of strength. Let radical 
classmates rise and fall, the deluge will find him 
safely ensconced in the first section with a ready 
made ark as a means to retire! Not a"redmike," 
by any means he knows how to take his women 
and let 'em alone — an accomplishment in itself! 
Before entering this institution of higher — and 
dearer — learning, Shorty was an exponent of the 
liberal arts and to this day life to him is a 
means of rounding himself out in all directions — 
athletics not excepted. 

Of an agreeable personality Dutch might be 
called the base on which the regiment is founded 
— last squad of the last platoon of the last com- 
pany of the last battalion! To know him is to 
like him, and there are many who are glad to 
call this fellow-sufferer "friend. "

Ricky was willing to reconstruct the Navy, but 
the D.O's had other plans, and soon it became 
well-known that the E.D. stood for "extra 
duty" (noble avocation!) 

We never have learned the inside dope on 
Ricky's "Bancroft Correspondence School for 
Women," but certain it is that he has given him- 
self unstintingly to his mission of writing letters 
to the more or less fair sex. They proved to be 
apt pupils, for his fan mail was six of the seven 
wonders of the Fourth Battalion. The seventh 
was his uncanny ability to absorb math and 
skinny during the remaining few minutes of his 
time. A "savoir" through and through is Ricky. 

Ricky's greatest attainment has been in sports. 
Plebe Summer he established his reputation as an 
able pugilist; later with the Varsity, although a 
welterweight, he took on anything up to 
"heavies" and kept them busy. Then came cross 
country and track. An enthusiast of physical 
fitness, he did not neglect this side of his life 
in the Academy. 

Here's hoping his effervescing enthusiasm is 
never dampened by the cares of the world.

THERE are few things that the Academic 
Departments put before us that Mac did not 
find it easy to master. Possessing such knowledge 
himself, he was always ready to help those less 
fortunate; as a result of his efforts, there are 
many who have found themselves safe at the end 
of the term. Athletics have found a faithful fol- 
lower in him, and while basketball occupied his 
spare time in winter not a spring afternoon went 
by that he could not be found on the tenniscourt. 
He is fond of good literature. One always finds 
in Mac an attentive listener and a good talker, 
and these characteristics coupled with his good- 
nature make him a welcome addition to any 
discussion. He is a staunch backer of all things 
Southern, and is always ready to argue about the 
relative merits of his home town as compared 
with any other town. Of his minor accomplish- 
ments, it may be said that he has developed a 
heartv appetite, been conspicuous by his absence 
from Bancroft Hall over week-ends, and is a firm 
believer that hops are an essential to the existence 
of the midshipmen. Possessing those characteris- 
tics that make up the finished product of the 
Academy, it may be truly said that Mac will 
bear up under all that is demanded of him, retain- 
ing those highest qualities of an officer and 
a gentleman.

OCCASIONALLY you come across one of the 
few who can do many things well, and 
Chick is one of these. Besides his ability in 
various branches of athletics, he is a musician 
of no mean caliber, and is possessed of a disposi- 
tion which makes him well liked by all and bet- 
ter liked by those who know him best. The 
Radiator Club has never known his membership, 
for the afternoons always found him busily 
engaged in some sport. One of his minor dis- 
tinctions was that of being the mainstay of the 
team which for two years held the touch foot- 
ball championship of the Academy. His athletic 
activities were hampered by the academics, 
but he always ended up with a good lead over 
the departments. His ambition is to live in a 
place where the meals are bigger, better, and 
more frequent, but his chief fault as a roommate 
is the number of letters which arrive, all ad- 
dressed to him. Blessed with the most equable of 
natures, Chick is sure of a welcome wherever he 
goes. Annapolis claims the honor of being his 
home town, but he seemed to spend most of his 
leaves in Washington.

"Ar' "Hobo'' 

FROM the wilds of Maine came tliis lad to 
our midst with his curly hair and cleverwitti- 
cisms. He had tried college for a year but the 
Navy called and he gave up his college career. 

One could find him on most any afternoon 
lounging on his bed reading a modern novel or 
sitting in at a bridge game — you could be sure, 
too, that he would be wrapped in his disrepu- 
table bathrobe, a relic, from appearances, of 
many afternoons' rubbing on the radiator. When 
not otherwise occupied he found great pleasure 
in making destructive criticisms of his com- 
panions — most of them too subtle for our feeble 
minds to grasp and reply to. 

His weekly box from home was always an 
occasion to gather and eat. When one was out of 
cigarettes or in need of anything from aspirin 
to hair tonic his locker was always available 
and adequate to fill any demands. 

Although not a "snake, " he is by no means a 
"red mike," for his charm and clever conver- 
sation have gained him many friends among the 
opposite sex. 

His minor joys in life occur when he makes a 
successful finesse or breaks 80 on a golf course — 
swimming and tennis also occasionally claim him 
in hours of recreation. 

Wherever the future carries Al, his friends will 
always welcome his company in any situation. 


THE fact that they built a good part of the 
Navy in Don's back yard at Fore River might 
have been the reason for sending us this Quincy 
boy, but even that could not account for his 
ability to go through four years with the mini- 
mum effort and maximum grades. The solution 
must have been the inevitable daily letter, post- 
marked Quincy, which inspired the nightly 
answer, much star gazing, and sympathy for us 
poor unfortunates. There was that dark day 
when no letter came, but "Sunshine's," only 
question was of the reliability of the mails. 

Don was a member of the radiator club of 
long standing, backsliding occasionally, only to 
find the warm glow too alluring to resist. After- 
noon would find him with his pipe and his ear 
close to a victrola or radio symphony, rhapsody, 
or bit of syncopation. If you pleased, name your 
subject for argument or bring your fourth for 
"contract" and you were off on your afternoon's 
diversion. If you found the blond boy with the 
cherubic grin at any "hop" or Carvel you could 
learn the name of nearly any girl on the floor, 
backed by an introduction. Intrude in his fun 
as you please, but never hope to intrude during 
those sacred hours of letter writing — the mail 
must go on.

FROM out of the cotton fields away down 
South came Rebel. No one knows exactly 
why he left his sunny home unless, like some of 
us, he had heard the many tales of the sea and 
longed to serve his country in an adventurous 
and exciting way. But without a doubt the brass 
buttons were the overwhelming inducement. 

Like all true sons of the Southland, Bob is a 
lover of the romantic, an advocate of a life of 
leisure and a slave to beautiful women. The truth 
of the matter is, there is always a "cute lil' ol' 
gurl" somewhere and, as he admits, it must be 
those sea blue eyes and a prominent square chin. 

His most outstanding fault is that unpardon- 
able sin of being vocally inclined. Aside from 
that, however. Bob is an excellent roommate, 
usually quite agreeable and willing to take his 
share of the responsibility. 

Helpful, cheerful, and sometimes serious- 
minded, he is a friend worth having and one 
not to be forgotten. What is good enough for him 
is none too good for a pal. 

Whether it be in the wardroom or on the 
U.S.S. Outside, Bob will add his share of the

"Pete" "Tom" 

FOUR years ago to two-gun Pete the North 
Platte was a mighty barrier. But in the 
memorable rush of 1919 (eight Nebraska men 
entered the Academy that year) Pete heard the 
call "Come East, young man," packed his bag, 
left his little grey home in the West midst the 
sand hills of the Sioux country and headed toward 
the rising sun. 

Today that bold, bad man is no more. The 
influences of travel and the Navy have done 
their "derndest." He no longer has coyotes and 
wolves for pals, no longer yearns for saddle and 
spur, but for wine, women, and the movies, the 
latter being his greatest weakness; he no longer 
likes to talk with the stars, but now curses them 
for the work they make for him. But certain 
Western traits linger with him still. He is a "big 
shot" with the women, and true to his memory 
of the pony stages he was a member of the Stage 

But seriously, behold the man; first a gentle- 
man of the finest sense; intelligent, but honest; 
energetic and quick to make friends and keep 
them. Pete will make a good officer in any man's 
navy. Good luck to you, pal!

"Bill" "Dave" "Red" 

BILL emerged from the sage brush of Idaho, 
and early in life set sail for the Federal City, 
dropping anchor at Western High, and later at 
"Schad's Prep." While at Western he became an 
expert rifleman, and the Navy is naturally solici- 
tous of such valuable men . He was one of the five 
men on the Naval Academy Rifle Team which 
won the International Championship from Eng- 
land in '31. 

Lack of space prohibits a discussion of his 
inspiration; but it's a significant fact that he has 
written her two letters each week of the four 
years we've known him. 

Bill is inclined toward politics, but this has 
been preceded by a still greater interest in naval 
affairs; add to this a keen business sense, and 
you see that he is destined to someday reach the 
pinnacle of success. He is about the average in 
academics, whereas he is high above the average 
in intelligence, common sense, and the where- 
withals which point to an accomplished naval or 
civil career. It is these qualities which have 
gained him the high esteem of his classmates. 

Rifle 4)2 1 P.O. 

PAUL is another of the Southern gentlemen 
who have chosen the Navy for a career. 
Soon after graduation from Carthage High 
School, his fascination for the sea became so 
strong that he enlisted in the Navy. After two 
months in training at Norfolk, he was sent to 
Pensacola, where he became interested in avia- 
tion and the hope of returning someday for flight 
training. After nearly a year there, he returned to 
Norfolk to enter the Naval Academy Preparatory 

For the first year and a half here, Pete had a 
continuous struggle with the academics, but 
always came out on top at the crucial moments. 
This experience taught him how to handle them 
and he has mastered them ever since. 

Pete is a hard worker and takes things very 
seriously. Pleasures are secondary when there 
is work to be done, but when he is not busy he 
will join in with the crowd. No problem ever 
gets by him until he understands it, nor any 
unusual word until he has consulted Webster. 
His only weakness was that of setting the alarm 
for five o'clock each morning of exam week and 
then disregarding it when it went off.

"Dead-Eye" "Bill" 

A RAMBLING wreck from Georgia Tech and 
a helluva engineer," was his theme song 
for every shower the first few days of Plebe Year. 
It did not last long, that one year at Tech was 
soon relegated to the past and seldom referred to 
again. Coming from Sarasota, Florida, famed as 
the winter quarters of Ringling Brothers' circus, 
his itinerant education included almost as many 
stops as that well-known show itself. Mostly 
they were Northern, save a brief interlude in 
Ireland too short for the acquisition of a brogue. 
As for organized athletics, football and gym 
have claimed his recreation hours. At both he has 
worked diligently, interestedly and not without 
credit to himself. 

During Plebe Year he became "Dead-Eye," a 
Plebe Year not too severe because of a reserve, a 
dignity, an affableness that won respect and 
liking from all those with whom he had contact. 
Though he "dragged" often and well he has 
never succumbed to love. In aeronautics are 
centered his ambitions and his hobbies. Whether 
his future be in the Service or in civil life those 
who know him will find him always an amiable 
companion, a true friend.

HAVE you heard this one?" Nine times out 
of ten you haven't, and when you do, you 
get a laugh that is bound to erase worries from 
your mind. If the joke doesn't do this, the con- 
tagious grin that flows over his face is bound 
to win out. 

Of course, he is small, but then he is big, 
otherwise he wouldn't have been telling those 
crew huskies what was what. In spite of his 
size, he never degenerated to the "Royal Organi- 
zation of Radiator Hounds." His endeavours 
included both athletic and non-athletic activi- 
ties, and he has done creditably in all of them. 
Small packages are usually very interesting, if 
you don't believe it, engage in a conversation 
with the Bos'n. Anything from digging ditches 
to criticizing art will do; as a source of informa- 
tion, he was the plebe's "walking almanac 
and dictionary." 

Academics were the least of his worries, 
whereas the question of which girl, or rather 
which school teacher, should receive his next 
letter was his greatest stumbling block. But 
he never stumbled, for his originality saved him 
every time. Coming from Shelton on the banks 
of the Housatanic to Annapolis on the banks of 
the Severn was only his first step in making a 
career for himself. If the present is any indica- 
tion, his future is promising.

SOMEONE had told Tad that the Academy was

dailies from Smith, Philadelphia, Washington, 
and points West. His best friends say that it is 
all due to three gloriously hilarious nights in 

He has had time for other activities, too. 
Second Class Summer he proved his ability as a 
basketball coach. It was then that he developed 
an undefeated team of Plebe Stars. The varsity, 
anxious for a winning combination, then signed 
him up. 

Last spring as a "ham-and-egger" he ruined 
more than his share of Grecian profiles. Without 
any previous experience Tad went out and won 
his numerals. He swings a mean stick! 

When it came to choosing a profession, Tad 
had no choice. For at the end of Second Class Year 
a friend presented him with Ensign's calling 
cards. One just could not keep them for mere 
souvenirs. The sea will not hold him, however, 
as he already has the flying yen. Bring on some

HE twentieth of June, 19x9, marked the 
-L turning point in Don's life. It recalls the last 
night of civilian life for four long years. An 
afternoon spent wandering through the yard 
looking with wondering eyes at the Naval Acad- 
emy, and then going to bed early to dream of 
becoming a midshipman. The next day found 
Don laboring up four "ladders" to 1418, his new 
home for Plebe Summer. "Plebes don't rate 
dragging," but Don found a way. Miss Spring- 
field kept his spare time filled for at least a hun- 
dred hours Plebe Year. Hard work has not 
removed Don's chubbiness, or has he worked 
hard? But with that chubbiness he has retained a 
spirit of good humor that has made what would 
have been dreary hours, pass quickly. If you 
heard a whistle in the corridor and a whack on 
the thigh it was Don. 

Studies never mattered much, not even eleven 
delayed exams, after two months in the hospital 
when pneumonia threatened to carry Don's 
naval training to the waters of the Styx. Gradua-

where someone will find him the same good

evidence of being one of the more "savvy "

himself a pin-pusher. The Navy folded Jimmie 
in and proceeded to batter some of his pet delu-

he has become extremely cautious in his dealings 
with life. Not that he is particularly unlucky 
either, in fact, though he's no "red mike," he 
hasn't been "bricked" yet. A dread of small dis- 
eases saves Jimmie, however, and he continues 
to wait for the moment when one radiant vision 
will banish all thoughts of other femmes from 
his mind. Meanwhile most of his attention goes 
to interesting little devices like thirty-eight 
revolvers and foot long pipes which he can't 
smoke without having spasms. High aims and 
a will to succeed do many things and if Jimmie 
can't sometime spend his nights wondering how 
to save a couple more barrels of oil we may hear 
of him pulling wonderful new things out of the

BILL is one of these men from Illinois who 
claim that Chicago is just a railroad junction 
in one corner. While on the subject it might be 
well to mention a few of his tenets. The most 
pronounced is his belief in the great Mid-West 
as the basketball center of the universe. The 
Academic Departments interfered with his efforts 
to raise the standard of playing excellence in 
these benighted regions, however, early in Plebe 
Year; and he has since found that he can best 
indulge his natural propensity to riot in class 
football. To look at his morning mail one could 
also safely assume that this smooth product of 
the Corn Belt believed implicitly in the old saw 
that there is safety in numbers. 

Willie's interests are many and varied. He is 
one of the pioneers in "Thirty-three" on those 
back and secluded waterways of Annapolis in 
which there is no turning. In company with the 
other members of the Fourth Batt'sdistinguished

Many a Freshman has fallen heir to his "golfing

THE proverbial rolling stone which gathers 
no moss acquires instead an enviable polish. 
George, being a Navy Junior and having, there- 
fore, taken up his abode in many scattered ports, 
is loyal to no one section of the land, but has 
developed the happyfaculty of cultivatingfriend- 
ships and making a home wherever his wander- 
ings have led him. It was inevitable that he 
should adapt himself quickly to the environment 
of the Naval Academy. 

George maintains so heavy a correspondence 
that his roommate finds it disconcerting to enter 
the room day after day, only to see that mail piled 
up on the wrong side. His devotion to the fair 
sex is intense but intermittent, certainly a logical 
attribute in one who has chosen the sea as 
his career. 

An agreeable disposition and the habit of 
regular attendance at social affairs made George 
an appropriate choice for the Hop Committee. 
His excess energy finds an outlet in various activi- 
ties. Quick to grasp principles, he has weathered 
the academic storms with little effort and with 
considerable success. 

Eminently fitted by training and by taste for a 
commission and possessing as he does the good

in his chosen profession.

NOBODY loves a carpenter ant." Having 
spent his younger days "burro-ing" about

not to be trusted at all when it comes to matters 
like walls, doors, or even cement. In his rare 
loquacious moods he can be persuaded to tell of

Being a Marine Junior he decided to follow 
his parents to Washington, D. C, and Quantico,

We found him to be a hard-working quiet 
young man fond of leaning on his studies. Every 
winter he matched flying mares and figure-fours 
with appropriate counters up in the wrestling 
loft, wresting away numerals for his devotion 
to this art. 

Every season is an open season to Burden as 
an amateur inventor. He is very handy at making 
labor-saving devices and tricky gadgets, barring 
unfortunate alarm clocks that get within his 
reach. His other great passion is tidiness. It 
is inherent with him to straighten his bookshelf 
or dust behind his radiator every morning. His 
essays at "dragging" are few and far between, 
with neither rhyme nor reason. 

His big ambition is to become a Marine. If 
industrious application means anything Burden 
will go high in this service.

Sparrow's Point, Maryland 


THOUGH not an uncommon diminutive, 
"Willie" as a cognomen means but one man 
to the Regiment — that is: W. E. Seipt. Smooth 
tempered and imperturbable is he, a true son of 
hard steel as they make it in his native Sparrow's 
Point, in the Old Line country. 

Still referring to steel, he has another char- 
acteristic in common with it, that of being 
practically immune to external stresses. This is 
evidenced by his supreme ability of concentra- 
tion which renders him unsusceptible to stray 
chatter unless his attention is specifically called. 
It has not, however, prevented his hearing the 
call of the wild — wild as personified by the Free 
Booters. Ever since the fall of Plebe Year, he 
has stuck an increasingly powerful leg, shoulder, 
and head into the game. The result has been to 
show all comers how it's well done in Maryland. 
That it has been far from futile is witnessed by 
a proudly borne "N." 

For the rest, by not letting the question of 
brains bother him at all, he has come through 
academics without a worry on the miss and the 
mile principle. Furthermore, of late he has been 
"dragging" steadily from Baltimore; we expect 
much of this.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 
"L.C." "Pickles" 

WE ALL know him as "Pickles." Coming 
home from Philadelphia he entered the 
Academy with all the usual dreams of a plebe 
and is still trying to catch up on the dreaming. 
He confined his athletics to freebooting and 
outdoor rifle and had an intense love of rough- 
and-tumble. Sometimes he chose the gym for 
the struggle, but more often it was your room 
or his own. 

He had a liking for stars and acquired them 
easily. His usual application was solitaire or a 
book, but in between he found time for a bit of 
' 'boning. ' ' Most of his work consisted of pulling 
through a few of the less enlightened whom he 
was always eager to assist. 

He harbors a fluttering heart and his fan mail 
is a varied collection. When the hops arrive, 
he is seen floating about with a special blonde 
or brunette. So far he has kept his heart intact, 
but he's sure to lose it soon. 

But Pickles has his serious moments and will 
be one to reach the pinnacle. His talents are such 
that he will become accomplished and valuable 
in his chosen career, and still be wearing the 
stars and the same friendly smile.

Bangor, Maine 

BEING a big Irishman from Maine where 
real men grow, and being named Michael, 
it was inevitable that he should be called Mike, 
and be admitted to the fellowship of the others 
as soon as he arrived. With freckles seeming as 
big as he, a Maine accent, and a chubby smile, 
he is usually cheerful, except when somebody 
picks on his pet aversion and calls him "Lousey " 
instead of Luosey. Then he must needs call some- 
body a big farmer. 

Early in his career here, crew claimed him 
solely, but he found that his weight could be 
used in other directions, so he took up wrestling, 
with the result that now he practices his holds 
on all willing persons. 

Hailing from the far North, he is used to cool 
climates, and wide open windows with plenty 
of fresh air are seemingly necessary to Mike, 
even when everybody else is freezing and causti- 
cally remarking that it's too cold in Maryland. 
The effect on Mike is only to cause a yearning 
for Maine, and to make his freckles grow. These 
freckles are about all that he won't give to help 
somebody, even to "dragging" blind, for having 
found a pot of gold that way once, he still has 
confidence in his luck. With that, an Irish dis- 
position, and the name Mike, he has little more 
to be desired.

"Luke" "Binkie" "Lee" 

OH, YUH CROOK!" and the wise ones nod- 
ded their heads and said to themselves, 
"Yea, 'tis Luke and he playeth at that time 
honored game of Battleship Chess." 

Much given to such things is our dear com- 
rade. A slave at first to bridge, he became fickle 
and shifted his affections to Acey Deucy and 
the above mentioned curse to mankind, only to 
return, finally, to his first passion, bridge. 

Think not, friends, that these be the only 
accomplishments of our Luke, for, verily, he 
playeth tennis with great skill and, when the 
weather permits, it is he who leads the van 
towards anything that resembles even only 
slightly a tennis court. 

Aye, mates, 'twas that oft sung state of Mis- 
sissippi that was the birthplace of our Binkie. 
However, 'tis in Baltimore that he has lived 
latest and longest and 'tis there he claims his 
home. Yea, dispute it as ye may, he stands stead- 
fast and loudly defends the name of that fair city. 

He never starred but he never studied, mates. 
Truly, however, such things worry him but 
little for, verily, he is "savvv. " 

Truly a great hearted gentleman is our mate. 
Despite his whims, his passion for imitating the 
Drum and Bugle Corps with a couple of chair 
legs and a table, and his most tuneless and un- 
melodious singing, we are tremendously fond of 
our Luke and shall greatly regret parting from 
him if the Fates so decree it.

OME people are handsome, some are "savvy," 
D others have various athletic accomplishments, 
but few possess the true character that our friend 
Karl has. His business is his own and the doings 
of other people is their own care. 

Karl is a true Navy man. His whole aim and 
ambition in life is to become an officer in the 
Service, and to that end he has directed his work. 
Few know more about practical seamanship and 
navigation, and his knowledge of these two 
wholly naval subjects has been proven by dem- 
onstration. Since he was old enough to read he 
has been interested in the sea and ships, and as 
his home is in Baltimore he is very well ac- 
quainted in the ways of the seamen of Chesa- 
peake Bay. 

Recreation? Sure. Almost any old time you 
can find Karl and his gang with their instru- 
ments, singing and playing lustily. The theme 
song, ladies and gentlemen, is "Somebody Stole 
My Gal," and harmonize is the best thing that 
they do. If not singing this merry assemblage is 
swapping yarns and each has his own story to 
relate. They spend their afternoons in the gym 
getting a good workout on the mat or in the 
ring. Karl is noted for his ability to lift the 
heavy weights, a worthy accomplishment. 

As we depart the Navy is getting a good officer 
and we are losing a true pal, to whom we wish 
all the success in this old world. 




RuxTON, Maryland 

"Cokie" "Gussie" 

AFTER viewing Naval Academy life from the 
- outside for a year from the vantage point of 
Severn School, George decided that his next 
move should be to get on the inside and look 
out for a while. And so, one hot summer day of 
19x9 he cast his lot with the Navy. 

His outstanding characteristic is his love, nay 
— even passion, for planning and promoting 
something — anything — and what is more, he 
almost invariably crashes through. Perhaps it is 
this quality which enabled him to do more than 
his share toward keeping the Academy hops well 
supplied with beautiful damsels. 

Like many Baltimoreans, his favorite sport is 
wrestling, and all of his spare time during the 
winter months was spent in the wrestling loft. 
His other athletic activities were confined mostly 
to practising acrobatic stunts to accompany 
cheer leading. 

If you don't see Gussie, chances are ten to one 
that you can locate him by listening for the 
strangest, jolliest laugh you have ever heard, 
trimmed up with an occasional war-whoop. Dark 
curly hair, big laughing eyes, a bundle of energy, 
and you have George — a swell roommate — the 
best of classmates.

IF A man has a craving for the sea, small boats 
on a small pond give him little satisfaction. 
There was but one answer, the Navy with all its 
ships and the seven seas; so Gordon came East 
to the cradle of American admirals. On the way 
a two year sojourn at Marion provided the neces- 
sary foundation for his career. In June of 192.9 
he installed himself behind the portals of Ban- 
croft Hall, for a time it seemed, none too securely; 
though it was not this that caused those gray 

Plebe Year was but a constant struggle with 
the academics which, instead of discouraging 
him, in no way destroyed his cheerful outlook 
and served only to increase his determination to 
stay. In the following years the move seemed 
permanent enough to permit him to spend most 
of his recreation hours in the pool, where he 
could be found either indulging himself in that 
murderous sport known as water polo or dis- 
porting himself with the ease of a water dog. 

Time was found also to "drag" which proved 
an antidote for the loves he left behind. Fre- 
quently withdrawing from our midst on solitary 
excursions, his return found him always more 
welcome. It is certain that always he will be, 
as he has been, the best of comrades in any

DePere, Wisconsin 
"Howie" "Crafty" 

SERVICE at sea, dreams of adventure, and the 
training to be gained at the Academy were 
the ends which brought Howie among us. His 
unassuming way, his cheerful good humor and 
his ready disposition have from the first made 
him a true friend. He is always ready for a frolic 
or a fray and doesn't like to miss the fun, even 
if it is an Easter egg hunt in his own well 
stowed locker. 

Crafty is not a brawny athlete, such as one 
sees in football togs. He likes sports and follows 
them closely. When he had a good margin of 
"velvet" his spare time was well spent on the 
basketball and tennis courts or in the gym. 
Although versatile in many sports he favors and 
finds the most enjoyment in golf. 

Howie is only human and like the rest of us 
is subject to the guiles of the fair sex, but he 
manages them extremely well and we have no 
record to date of any one refusing his bid to a hop. 

Determination and perseverance are his out- 
standing characteristics. He knows no limit to 
any work if it will attain the desired results. 

This son of the Middle West has much to be 
proud of, little to repent, and is first, last, and 
always, a gentleman.

Breaux Bridge, Louisiana 
"Saint" "Kay" 

THE love of the air brought this young South- 
ern gentleman to us. A visit at Pensacola 
convinced Saint that to be a good officer is the 
first prerequisite of an accomplished aviator. 

Since the first day Ray entered the Academy, 
he has always been full of pep, fun, and good 
fellowship. The thing that impresses you is that 
he is a mighty good, clean sport. 

Possessing potential athletic qualities in many 
sports, Saint has lived on the theory that an 
athletic education consists in being fair in many 
sports rather than a star in only one. However, 
he has given a few spare moments each fall to 
class football, being the skipper of a winning 
team Second Class Year. 

Ray's academic life was begun with the best of 
intentions, but like the average Southerner, he 
is conservative with his energies and is fain to do 
average work with slight effort rather than 
attain proficiency through application. 

Saint has one weakness which he strives in 
vain to conquer — his liking for the fairer sex. 
The end of each leave finds him resorting to 
reading the philosophy of the ancients in order 
to calm his fluttering heart. 

Beneath his external shell of i\\n and good 
fellowship is a big heart which has won his 
classmates and will continue to win friends 
wherever he goes.

"Donn" "Mac" 

THE first day of Plebe Summer found Mac 
safely landed in Bancroft Hall as one of the 
charter members of '33. From the first day of his 
career as one of the sons of the Navy his smile 
and good humor made him a friend of everyone. 
Nothing seems to trouble him very much and 
one of his smallest worries has been the "ac" 
departments. Although not a star man he has 
always managed to see plenty of "velvet" piled 
up early in the game. The last two months of 
each term he spent lying on his bed reading a 
magazine. Perhaps the only thing more astonish- 
ing than his ability to read a lesson in five 
minutes is his ability to catch up on two weeks 
correspondence in a study period, and with 
every letter a masterpiece. 

The drudgery of varsity sports does not appeal 
to him. Afternoons, he could usually be found 
in the pool or ring or on the wrestling mat or 
sand lot baseball team giving a good account 
of himself. 

Sundays found him "snaking" at Carvel and 
he was as much at home there as he was in a 
bull session in the Hall. It would be hard to find 
a group where he would not be at home. 

Here's to you, Mac, the Ail-American room- 
mate. May Pittsfield, Massachusetts, continue 
to be proud of you. 


Mounds, Illinois 

PHYSICALLY distinguished by a cleft chin, 
curly hair and an erect carriage, which attri- 
butes have made him admired by the fair sex and 
instinctively liked by men. However, we who 
know him best can state with emphasis that it 
is not alone his good looks with which he cap- 
tures and holds the respect of others but rather 
his sunny and pleasant disposition. Easy going, 
likeable, with not a care in the world, and 
somehow he possesses the ability to impart a 
measure of his easy going nature to others. 
Ralph is one of the charter members of '33 com- 
ing to us from the city of Mounds, Illinois, by 
way of the University of Illinois and the school 
of experience. In all three of the places he has 
gleaned enough knowledge and wisdom to keep 
off the rocks and shoals founded by the Academic 
and Executive Departments. In fact, academics 
have been just a means of further developing a 
keen practical mind. When graduation comes, 
it will be a sad day for us to say goodbye to 
one whom we admire and respect as much as we 
do Ralph.

BORN among the populace of the New Eng- 
land State of Connecticut, educated to the 
ways of mankind in Hartford Schools, Maggie 
soon found himself destined to be one of those 
to spend four years at the United States Naval 
Academy. But it was not until he had creditably 
completed a year at Amherst that he found the 
calling of the sea too strong to resist. 

Once settled into the daily routine of a Mid- 
shipman he soon proved himself to be foremost 
in his line, namely French and English, but 
barely did he escape the claws of the Steam 
Department. However, his interests in the finer 
subjects of mankind never lagged; scarcely a 
book in library escaped his ever searching eye, no 
day passed leaving his knowledge unbroadened. 

Although Maggie never entered into any 
kind of athletics, he will ever be remembered 
as a faithful and efficient swimming manager. In 
fact, his success there seems to ever point to 
success whether he remain attached to the sea, 
or goes to the "U.S.S. Outside." 

No force can boast of having been a contribut- 
ing factor toward his success, save his own 
brain and brawn.

IF EVER there existed a Midshipman who 
deserved the prosaic designation of "strong 
and silent," it is Si. Yet, beneath his armor of 
reserve there beats the well-known heart of gold. 

Si is one of those athletes who is always 
working out for the joy of it. There are probably 
few men in the Academy who have had as varied 
athletic experiences as Si. Among the sports he 
has participated in are football, crew, track, 
boxing, wrestling, fencing and tennis, and we've 
always suspected him of more; he was good in 
these sports, too. It was his desire to learn 
something new that led him to take up so many 
different sports. 

Most of us always thought of him as the 
typical "red mike" and bachelor. After Second 
Class "Sep" leave, however, he returned a new 
man, laden with wonderful descriptions of a girl. 
He even went further; he produced positive proof 
in pictures. We shook our heads, murmuring 
against our former short-sighted judgment. And 
now we can only expect that Si will be one of 
the first to journey up the aisle after graduation 
plus two years. 

Ambition and perseverance are two of Si's 
most prominent characteristics, and if they can 
aid personal progress in the jejune world of 
today, we are certain that they will push him 
to the fore.

SOMEHOW the news got down to Alabama 
that there is a U. S. Navy; this modern gen- 
tleman of the Old South felt the call and, 
although occupied in cutting classes at Birming- 
ham Southern at the time, he gave up these 
operations and signed a few papers; as a result 
he shortly found himself at the Naval Academy. 

Of ambitions he has many; the most important 
one is to get a commission and a pair of wings. 
Favorite expression: "Suh, I resent that." An- 
other one that can be heard most any Monday 
morning is, "I'm going in training after this

ent generosity, (ask the man who wears his 
shirts), common sense where needed, and an 
amount of tact and poise which can be depended 
upon in any situation are some of the qualities 
which make Mammy a valuable friend and will 
give him deserved success in life.

COMING from the Codfish State and being 
exposed to the salty spray that is so much a 
part of that state, it was not unusual that Harry 
chose to enter the Navy. Unlike his namesake 
of movie fame his thoughts were those of the sea 
and not of the wild west. 

Academics held no terror for him and he soon 
piled up lots of "velvet" for the balmy spring 
days. Dago proved his favorite and he soon 
became quite a linguist. 

The first two years found Harry "dragging" 
occasionally and then it was often to help out a 
friend. But then came the dawn .... and with it 
came a certain red-head. Now we wonder why 
he is "dragging" so often and why he is always 
out of stationery. 

Early in his career at the Academy crew 
claimed him. In his last years he directed his 
efforts toward the production of a bigger and 
better Reef Points for which incoming plebes 
should be grateful. 

Harry is a great sport and one to enliven any 
party. When he sets about to work he doesn't 
mix it with play.

WHEN Al first walked through number three 
gate, he was from Indianapolis, but soon 
his residence was changed to the Sunny State. 
Being an Army Junior and, strangely proud of it, 
he has lived in most every place from Wash- 
ington, D. C, to China. 

His former military record didn't help him 
much when he encountered the Math Depart- 
ment. They called out the band for him a number 
of times but each time he fooled them and was 
one jump on the sunny side of i.495. He has 
the unusual ability to come back when every- 
body has just about counted him out. 

Dutch likes baseball, tennis, basketball and 
to a limited extent, women. They have never 
become a problem to him, however, and his first 
and last ambition is a gold bar on each shoulder 
and a red stripe down each pant leg. 

He seldom has any tobacco for his pipe but 
he is pleasant to make a liberty with, and even 
better for a skag and a bull session. He supplied 
the battalion with phonograph records; any- 
thing he has is yours. 

Al has always been a mighty fine friend and

"Gil" "Dick" 

AFTER Gil had his first boat on Lake Michi- 


gan, he decided that he had heard the 

calling of the sea. Dick made up his mind that 
he would come to the cradle of sea power and 
see if it could teach him anything that Chicago 
had not in the line of warfare. 

Thus we welcomed him on that day in July. 
Gil became one of our promising stripers Plebe 
Summer and showed that his former military 
training had not been in vain. Academics have 
never bothered him much, and he has had time 
for crew, soccer, wrestling, and the Radiator 
Club. Sailing is his hobby, for there is nothing 
he would rather do than spend an afternoon with 
the tiller in his hand. Dick is neither a "red 
mike" nor a consistent "snake," but he is 
always ready to seek the Terpsichorean pleasure. 
Gil is an ideal roommate and he is always ready 
to share what he has, always has a cheery word, 
and is always ready to discuss anything withyou. 

His ambition is to command a destroyer and 
when that day comes we can rightly expect great 
success. Here's to you, Gil, and no matter 
whether we meet again on the East Coast or 
the China Station, we shall always be happy 
to ship with you. 






WHAT'S this, an argument? And Dick gets 
off to a start that ends only after he has 
beaten off all opposition. His efforts can be 
annulled only by a vivid imagination, and his 
dramatic presentation nearly always brings con- 
viction. His willingness and ability to discourse 
upon most any subject (and because his interests 
know no confines) makes him welcome at any 
assembly of our well-known Radiator Club. 

Dick hails from Massachusetts and is particu- 
larly proud of the fact. He is naturally savvy 
and somber clouds have never darkened his 
academic career. An ever present willingness to 
help out some less fortunate classmate with the 
intricacies of turbine installations, or demon- 
strating how the picture works the problem, 
makes him liked and admired by all of us. 

Organized athletics have no part in his daily 
routine. But whatever his fancy dictates, whether 
baseball, football, lacrosse, swimming, or a 
wrestling match in the room, furnishes him his 
daily workout. Always to be relied upon to 
supply the stamp, "skag," toothpaste or other 
necessities of life, and to uphold his end of the 
deal, Dick makes an ideal roommate.

GOT anything to read? Thus, everyone, high 
or low, begins his search for a book and 
pays homage to a far-famed and widely-known 
connoisseur of literature. Good reading is essen- 
tial in Ed's life. He probably acquired this habit 
in the little town in northern Michigan, of 
which he is justly proud and always ready to 
stand by. 

Ed absorbs all the necessary knowledge with 
ease. He seems a bit too easy going to throw 
himself into his work, but he is capable of 
being as savvy as any. This is evidenced by his 
ability to show to anyone why the figures jump 
around as they do. Music is one or his lesser 
hobbies. More than one evening has been spent 
in trying to escape from the mysterious wailings 
of his saxophone. 

Athletics, as such, hold no interest for Ed. 
This is probably due to the fact that he is more 
accustomed to an open expanse of ice or the 
vastness of a woods than to a mere plot of grass 
to find an outlet for his energy. 

To Ed women are vital. His loves are many 
and varied, near and far-flung. In his estimation, 
none are to be taken seriously. Withal, an 
amiable chap who willingly does his share and 
makes a fine fellow to live with. 




Decatur, Illinois 
"Guy" "G" 

WAY back yonder in the past, Guy decided 
that military life was just the thing for 
him, so what do you think he did? No, you're 
wrong. He went and joined the Marines. How- 
ever, he rectified his error later on by passing 
the entrance exams to this our beloved Alma 
Mater. It seems though, that one never learns; 
he still has Marines on the brain and we suppose 
that's where he will be found from now on. 

Life here at the Academy has not dealt very 
severely with him. With the exception of a 
little set-to with steam Plebe Year, studies have 
caused work but not worry. The text books 
always got a rest when there was a "Cosmo" or 
a Liberty lying around the room. 

And when it came to "snaking" very few 
hops went by without the presence of our hero. 
We don't know how he did it, but he always 
had a 4.0 drag at all the hops. Then there was 
the O. A.O. down in Old Virginny. She accounted 
for at least six or seven hours every week spent 
in letter-writing, which incidentally brought 
excellent results. 

Guy also did well at shooting the rifle; both 
small and outdoor rifle teams had him in their 
midst. Of course it may be that getting out of 
drill on Mondays had something to do with it 
but if you don't think he can shoot take a look 
at his medals.

"Hank" "Salty" 

HANK comes from the far South where he 
acquired many of the mannerisms of that 
fair land. As is true of all mariners, he heard 
the call of the sea early, and by enlisting he fitted 
himself to become a Midshipman. 

Hank is of a rather quiet nature, but he has a 
sparkle in his eyes that discloses a quickness of 
mind and a keen sense of humor. Girls in general 
or in particular, do not seem to interest him 
in the least. 

Not confining his activities to academics, 
Hank early joined the ranks of the wrestlers 
and devoted all his spare time to the gym. In 
addition to this, he is a literary fiend, within 
the limits of Yachting and Collier's. Although 
not famous when it comes to working math 
probs and drawing Zeuner diagrams, he has 
managed to get by, and still keep up with the 
latest magazines. 

It might be said that Hank has musical tenden- 
cies. At any rate he is the proud possessor of an 
old rheumatic accordian with which he is wont 
to divert his shipmates' thoughts from the cares 
and worries of this life. 

Hank was "non-reg." But that doesn't count 
now. There are bigger things ahead, and the fact 
that you've bounced the rougher road and sur- 
vived it, makes you stronger for it. Hank is no 
fair weather friend, and that's the best you can 
say of any man.

"Bill" "Sammy" "Willie" 

ALTHOUGH an "Army Junior" and born at 
- Fortress Monroe, Bill was early attracted 
to the life of a Midshipman. At Devitt Prep, 
Bill became the bane of every Congressman's 
existence, and soon amassed quite a few "alter- 
nates" to enter with the class of '33. 

Bill claims to be a good judge of femmes, dogs, 
and horse flesh, but this, by no means, limits 
his abilities. First famous as the coxswain who 
lost his plebe shell up the Severn in a fog, he was 
often seen in the winter as one of Spike's scrap- 
pers, and in the spring filled a goal for the "ham 
and eggers." Bill has a natural ability to talk 
his way in and out of anything, which he has had 
numerous opportunities to do as business mana- 
ger of Reef Points. His weaknesses were arguing 
with "profs" and an extreme faithfulness to each 
succeeding O.A.O. A member of the famous 
organization of "Sandblowers," Bill can no 
more go unnoticed in a crowd than he can while 
singing in the shower. A great expender of ergs 
and energy, he was often seen chasing various 
people down the corridors while in the most 
"apropos" costumes. 

Always a man for the extremes, Bill plans to 
either crash a few planes or sink a few submarines 
in the future.

"Lem" "Steve" 

FIRST seeing the sea from the beaches of 
Waikiki, Steve was early destined to be a 
sailor. Even the fact that he stood thirteenth on 
the list of Presidential appointments has not 
kept him from the "ranks of the chosen." No 
star man, yet he is savvy enough to give the rest 
of us a hand when the trees come up. In four 
years he has never missed an opportunity to 
(i) gripe about "this Annapolis weather" and 
(i) ask if the word on the uniform has yet 
been passed. 

Showing his innate thriftiness, he bought an 
exerciser Plebe Year and by continuing work on 
it another year hopes that the collars issued him 
on entering can be used. 

The mainstay of every class team from swim- 
ming and football to lacrosse, he was early black- 
balled by the Radiator Club. No "snake," yet 
he has never let "dragging" become a habit, 
and is more likely to be found on Farragut Field 
on Sundays, than at Carvel Hall. 

His only ambition (so he says) is to be a 
bachelor, a millionaire sportsman, an aviator 
and a naval officer. Always to be relied upon for 
a piece of soap, string or anything in the way of 
medicine. He was an ideal roommate.

Chocorua, New Hampshire 


BILL made his debut in the tropical isles of 
Hawaii with the surf roaring in his ears, 
but he soon left this beautiful place to settle in 
the wilds of New England. The call of the sea 
was strong, however, and the summer of '19 
found him among the first to enter in this class. 
In spite of the years spent in the frozen wastes 
of the near Arctic, he still carries the radiant 
smile and winning personality of the South Sea 
Islander. Not being content to sit and dream by 
the radiator. Bill turned to athletics, and here 
his ability was apparent as he readily won his 
spurs in both football and baseball. His aca- 
demics have given him a bit of rough going at 
times; but as usual when the end rolled around 
there was Bill sitting right on top. 

Life is not hard for Bill as he has it beaten 
with his cheery grin which is forever radiating 
sunshine wherever he goes. He is not a very 
consistent "red mike" for at rare intervals he 
breaks down long enough to drag one of his 
"forties;" but as yet Cupid has had no luck with 
Bill. His future looks great and whether the 
Navy gets him or not we wish him luck.

Honolulu, Hawaii 

"Robbie" "Charlie" "Boh" 

ROBBIE dropped into our midst Plebe Sum- 
- mer, after a long jaunt from far off Honolulu. 
He brought with him a large part of the sunshine 
and warmth for which that place is so justly 
famous. It was not long before he was recognized 
for his true worth, as he soon made his presence 
felt not only on the football field and in the 
swimming pool but in the hearts of his class- 
mates as well. 

Ever since he can remember, beginning prob- 
ably with tinkering around a couple of old 
broken down flivvers back in the Islands, Robbie 
has had a strong yen for that duty which will 
eventually take him to Pensacola. May all luck 
attend him in his quest. 

Sane and level-headed always, Robbie has 
pretty generally kept himself free of any serious 
thoughts regarding the other sex. 

Robbie has been endowed with one of the 
cheeriest and most amiable of personalities, 
together with a natural knack for making and 
keeping good friends. He is ambitious (though 
'tis not a fault in him), enthusiastic, conscien- 
tious, and possesses a fine degree of persistence 
in everything that he does. All these will serve 
to carry him far wherever he goes.

PoTTSViLLE, Pennsylvania 

"Red" "Fitch" 

FITCH hails from Pottsville, Pennsylvania. 
After starring on the high school football 
team he decided to try his luck here. After much 
"boning" and hard work the goal was attained. 
During Plebe Summer he fought for the company 
and won the plaudits of his classmates. 

When not "boning" for exams, Fitch liked 
to put a record on the "Vic" and try to imitate 
the warbling of the latest crooners. Magazines 
occupied much of his spare time but bridge was 
his hobby. Locate a bridge game and there also 
you'll find Fitch. 

As for the weaker sex, his only worry is which 
one to "drag." That curly, red-hair and his 
ability as a dancer have won him many admirers 
among the femmes. We have a suspicion that 
his ability to handle a Navy line has also had 
something to do with his conquests. 

Determination in abundance, a kindly nature 
and an appreciation for jokes have proved to be 
his formula for success, both in winning friends 
and in the battle with the academics. Plebe Year 
math almost hung him on the Christmas tree, 
but ever after Fitch was careful to have plenty of 
"velvet" by the time leave rolled around. 

Best of luck, old man!

Lorain, Ohio 

"Steve" "George" 

AFTER sailing from one end of the Great Lakes 
- to the other, Steve decided to transfer the 
scene of his activities to Annapolis. He betook 
himself to "Bobbies" where he studied a great 
deal and lost much sleep. His ambition was real- 
ized when in June xg he became one of us. 

As a Midshipman George proceeded to make 
up the sleep he lost as a candidate. He got so 
much enjoyment from sleep that he made it a 

Despite the fact that Steve has had more than 
his share of trouble with ' 'Old Man Academics, 
he still spent a great deal of time with ' 'Cosmo. ' ' 
He always managed to obtain the maximum 
mark from the minimum of effort. 

Steve has never been known to worry, not 
even about women, and to this he attributes 
his success. 

He has gained the reputation of being a "red 
mike" but a regular letter from Scotland since 
the termination of Youngster Cruise sometimes 
causes us to wonder. 

His winning personality, coupled with a 
jovial, carefree disposition made him the ideal 
roommate and has won him a place in the hearts 
of all his classmates. Best o' luck to ye, Steve.

exists upon leaving classes be- 
hind: yet, our learning is only 

Physical drills under arms; 
once a drudgery, now a drill 
executed with faultless pre- 
cision. Friends and relatives 
watch and are pleased with the 

Athletics; crew, track, la- 
crosse, tennis, baseball. Final 


games which are the termina- 
tions of months of training. 

A last determined effort to 
bring victory and honor to the 
Academy and the Naval Service. 
Old traditions to be upheld! 
Old rivals to conquer! 

Bancroft Hall, a place of in- 
terest and happiness: of joy and 
excitement. The Rotunda, Me- 
morial Hall, the Balcony, the 



Bav: priceless memories, never 
to be forgotten. 

Parades for the movies, for 
friends, for relatives, for officers 
whose places we hope some day 
to occupy. Long lines, rigid 
lines, clearly indicating long 
periods of perseverance, train- 
ing, patience. Report! "Four 
men absent, sir!" Pass in review 
and Worden Field is left behind. 






Awards, as varied as the 
academic courses. The realiza- 
tion of an ambition, of a work 
successfully accomplished. 
Proud hearts among the guests 
as a name is called. Work well 

The Ring Dance. A new class 
comes into responsibility. Mid- 
shipmen proud to accept the 
ring from the sweetest girl in 


'it ^Mj 



The last drill .... 

The Admiral's garden party: 
laughter and gayety under the 
stars in the faint shadows of 
the Chapel dome. 

June Ball, our last dance in 
the uniform of a Midshipman 
and the Plebe's first. Dreams of 
past years, now all come true. 
Happy couples — the old sea- 
wall, moonlight, Smoke Park, 







Epaulettes, the symbol of our 
new position in life, presented 
by those whom we love best, 
our mothers and sweethearts. 
A new first class, new duties, 
new responsibilities. "No more 
Plebes!" Thirty-four take 

Orders to ships, final fare- ' 
wells, leave, and memories!!! 

June Week! The end of our 
Midshipmen days and yet, only 
the beginning of our work.

FIRST organization of tlie entering class, the Crest Committee is selected to commemorate that event. 
Like a coat of arms for a new family, the crest must contain something old and something new, be 
typical and yet, plain. Most important of all, it must contain the thought and glory of the Academy. 

All this our Committee did. The Crest (and the Ring) is the result of some hundred odd designs, 
several actual photos, much imagination, and lots of hard work. The design is brand new — more so 
than is generally realized. 

It is a "mechanized" crest. Gone are the marine animals that graced the earlier rings. In their place 
is the Navy, every branch of it represented. The cruiser is the Pensacola, which was commissioned at 
the same time we were. There is the cowling of an airplane, and the screw of a submarine. The stars on 
the sides are the markings of a dirigible, and the whole is presided over by a specially designed eagle. 

The speed of the Pensacola is thirty-three knots. Sword knots are prophetic of rank to come, and 
the four stars on the ring imply the hope of a Full Admiral to be. 

In future years, the members of the class, and especially the committee, will carry with them a 
symbol of work well done.

AN EARLY acquaintance and an old friend, the Naval Academy Christian Association has whiled 
- away many a Sunday evening. It is most closely associated with the bewilderment of Plebe Year, 
when those meetings stood out like oases in a desert. They gave us something solid and reliable to grasp, 
when such things were sorely needed. 

A brief talk by each of the captains of the various Navy sports brought us, at the beginning of the 
year, into contact with that very important phase of our Academy career. Midshipman officers then 
showed us more clearly some of the other realities of midshipman life. Throughout the years, dis- 
tinguished men from all walks of life have brought interesting messages to us. Naval officers have told 
interesting stories of foreign lands. Clergymen have had even more curious tales of the life that goes on 
around us. Statesmen have talked of the world of politics. Humorists have made us laugh. 

It is an important factor in bridging the gap between our isolated life and the world outside. It 
has been a channel by which we have learned from the experience of those who have gone ahead. An 
institution by and for midshipmen, it is instructive in purpose and successful in execution.

IT'S a red-letter day when a midshipman first wears his ring. Like the day he enters the Academy 
and the day he graduates, it is a landmark — never to be forgotten. The ring stands for all that the 
four years have been: — honor, hard work, and success. 

When the rings appeared at the end of Second Class Year, they were already a year in the making. 
Before Second Class Summer, the jewelers had been preparing designs, and the Committee was kept 
busy cutting and choosing. The best parts of each design made up the final choice. Dies and sample 
rings were then submitted to microscopic scrutiny, to assure absolute perfection of detail. As finally 
submitted to the Class, the ring was worthy of its importance. It is a happy combination of symbolism, 
beauty, and traditions — both of the Navy and of the Class. 

The Ring Committee hopes that in later years the '33 Class Ring will mean all that was intended, 
and will be held sacred by those wearing it. It is primarily the privilege of the Class.

OUR Christmas Cards have more than a passing interest. Besides conveying the age-old message of 
goodwill at Yuletide, they interpret some phase of Naval Tradition and some historically accu- 
rate incident of the Naval Academy or the Fleet. To produce a card representative of the Regiment, 
executed artistically in good taste, is the work of the Christmas Card Committee. 

Early in February, the ideas that will grow into the next Christmas Card are born. For the first 
page it was decided to reproduce a scene of the New Main Gates. An original etching was prepared by 
the nationally known etcher, Mr. Earl Horter. Thus, on the first page was incorporated a Naval Acad- 
emy subject; the open gates a symbol of welcome and friendship. For the third page, the belligerent 
painting of the Constitution-Java engagement was selected. Inasmuch as this historical painting is 
now a mural in Memorial Hall, it was doubly appropriate. 

The Committee was careful to check the accuracy of each detail, for well they know the critical 
eye of a midshipman. Then the mechanical details were ironed out. Specifications were drawn up, and 
after endless interviews with various engravers, the contract was let. 

In the fall, the thirty-odd thousand cards are delivered while the Committee awaits the decision of 
the Regiment. There are always growls of disapproval, and glowing words of approbation. 
The card was distinctive, colorful, artistically beautiful — and the 
Committee justly points with pride to the culmination of its efforts.

ANIGHT of nights — colored rainbows on the wall — a sparkle in the sky — soft lights and softer 
music. Can we ever forget that night? The long line around the floor. O.A.O's. That interminable 
wait. The big ring — and then your own real ring, slipped on by the chosen one. 

Three long years, little "Circlet of Gold," but you are worth it, with all you signify. 

"What men or gods are there? 

What maidens loth? 
What mad pursuit? 

What struggle to escape? 
What pipes and timbrels? 

What wild ecstasy?" 

'Tis true, but the stage was set for one memorable night by the Ring Dance Committee. In the 
months before, it was they who erected the mighty ring, who decked the walls so gay. It is to them 
that we of '33 extend thanks for our ever-to-be-remembered Ring Dance of 1931.

TO THE Hop Committee is delegated the very special duty and privilege of seeing that the Regimental 
Hops and the June Ball preserve their reputation for color and picturesqueness. The pleasing task 
of receiving with the hostess is included among the privileges allotted to the members of the Committee. 
Whenever historical Annapolis and the Naval Academy are visited on the night of a Hop by dis- 
tinguished visitors of our own or foreign lands, the provision of a proper escort and the rendition of 
"honors" falls to the lot of this Committee, members of which are recognizable by the sword belts 
they wear. If, perchance, fair damsel is distressed over the loss of a silver buckle, a broken clasp, or a 
lost earring, she need do nothing more than acquaint the nearest member of the Committee of her plight, 
and the difficulty will be solved. Even a heavy snowfall becomes a problem for the Hop Committee to 
clear away so that evening wraps and dainty slippers may not be spoiled. No, little girl, they don't 
have to shovel the snow themselves. 

Upon reading all this, the same little girl may wonder whether these gallant men have time to 
enjoy themselves at the Hops they serve so well. All that is necessary to answer such a query is to inform 
her of the Hop Committee prerogative by which the very best looking, and most charming girls of the 
evening constitute fair prizes as regards being broken upon. This gesture comes under the heading of 
hospitality and concern for the perfect enjoyment of the guest.

MOST unobtrusive organization of the Regiment, it is only on Sundays that the Choir is in the 
public eye. Then it is a very necessary adjunct to an impressive service. Under the leadership of 
Professor Crosley the Choir renders some of the finest and most difficult music written. It is to be 
regretted that the usual Palm Sunday Sacred Cantata had to be omitted this year. However, the new 
arrangement of time has left the Choir with only one hour a week available for practice. With this 
one hour they do wonders. There is no award of merit given to a member of the Choir except the satis- 
faction and honor of belonging to the oldest organization in the Regiment — one that is known through- 
out the country for its work. What would Chapel be without its music? 

Nor would Chapel be complete without its seating committee. Properly locating the visitors is an 
art requiring the finesse of a diplomat and the strategy of a quarterback. Just how many young ladies 
find their way among the congregation unguided is hard to tell. Some get rather rattled even under the 
expert tutelage of the Ushers. We have often sympathized with the unfortunate midshipman who 
marches down the aisle, faces about, and finds himself deserted by his charge. Such a condition requires 
Indian stoicism; yet, no usher has ever quailed. All honor to the Beau Brummels of the Regiment.

'"DEAR a hand in the Plebes!" 

The football season is in full swine, with the Public Address System following the ball, and the 
Radio Club at the controls. In this and in other ways does the Radio Club serve the Academy. 

When D. C. radio sets were being investigated and tried out, the Club did the greater part of the 
work. The enthusiasm with which the sets have been received is evidence of their careful selection. 

All the year round the Club is a message center for the entire country. Through its affiliations 
with the American Radio Relay League, it has handled messages for midshipmen to all parts of the 
United States. In this organization of amateurs, station W3AIX3 is an O.B.S. (official broadcast 

During June Week, an unusual service is rendered, in that radio is the only means of communica- 
tion with the many yachts then in the harbor. On one particular occasion, the station was given an 
urgent message to deliver, but could not attract the attention of the yacht. Finally, it was called by 
blinker from Memorial Hall and instructed to listen for the message. 

Membership in the Club is made enjoyable by frequent communication with amateurs of all local- 
ities. Judging by the number of Q.S.L. cards received from Europe, the station has more than 
enough power to send across the pond. The Club is at the same time a recreation and a practical 
laboratorv for its members.

AN ENTIRELY new organization, the Quarter-Deck Society, appeared the latter part of the Academic 
- Year 1931-32.. It was formed by a group of Midshipmen who desired to develop the art of speak- 
ing in public, and who wanted an opportunity for discussion of subjects in which they were interested. 
The purpose of the Quarter-Deck, as stated in its Constitution, is "to develop the art of public speak- 
ing among the Midshipmen of the United States Naval Academy." To carry out this purpose, speakers 
and debaters are designated to take part in each meeting. These speakers, together with a com- 
mittee, work out a program which will permit them to speak upon topics of their own choosing. 
Parliamentary Procedure is carried out in the meeting, each member in turn being designated by the 
President to act as Chairman. This gives each one the opportunity of conducting a meeting, and in 
that manner each gains added experience. The last part of each meeting, when time permits, is devoted 
to informal discussion by those present. It is surprising the way the subjects which were used by 
speakers can be enlarged upon by ideas and opinions which would otherwise have languished 
unheard. Thus far the Society has accomplished its purpose. It continues to give the prospective 
Naval Officer the training he needs for speaking in public; but even more important than that — 
it broadens his powers of reasoning and thinking and of putting his thoughts into words.

FIRST Class Year is replete with "lasts" of many things: — last leave, last Army game, last exams, 
and last get-to-gether of the Class. The latter — the First Class Supper — foretells the enc^ of a 
four year association and companionship. More than that, it looks to the not-far-off future, of ser- 
vice in the Fleet, and of coming class reunions. 

In past years, the custom has been to have the dinner during February, in some nearby city. 
Lately, the practice has been to hold it in the mess hall and at a date closer to graduation. It now 
comes at a time when one thinks seriously of graduation, of saying goodbye to a life that will 
never return, and of the uncertainties that lie beyond. It is marked by an unreal hilarity that masks 
the seriousness of farewell. 

The Class Supper ranks with Plebe and Second Class Summers, and with our First Class Hops as 
one of the few times actually associated with '33. Our farewell to the Academy, it marks the end 
of the beginning.

THE fundamental purpose of this Committee is to further promote the spirit of goodwill and sports- 
manship begun in athletic events between our teams and those of our friendly rivals. Members of 
the Committee receive each visiting team and make every effort to make their stay in Bancroft Hall a 
pleasant one. 

During the actual course of a contest, Navy teams battle every inch of the way in the hope of 
gaining a well earned victory. But off the field of sport, visiting athleties are guests of the Regiment. 
Win or lose, it is the sincere desire of every midshipman that these men be shown every courtesy and 
consideration. The ultimate being that our athletic guests may carry with them a lasting impression 
of what we call the Spirit of the Navy. 

More than a hundred and fifty athletic teams from many different schools visit the Academy each 
year. They are for the most part strangers in a strange land. To make them feel "at home" — that is 
the reason for the Reception Committee. 

D. L. Martineau 









A FRATERNITY of accomplishment that is joined by doing — this is the N Club. Holding no 
meeting, electing no officers, it lives virtually in its members, and they in it. Here all sports are 
equal. Distinctions are gone. The star of three years' standing ranks along with the plugger who only 
made the team as a First Classman. The sole requirement is the right to wear the Academy "N" 

Once each year, at either a dinner or a dance, old members return and new members become old 
ones. The dinners in "Smoke Hall," scene of many a Pep rally and "fight talk," have recently been 
replaced by June Week dances. Then, in the new Hubbard Hall, the Athletic Association royally 
entertains. Long days and months of hard training during the year are soon forgotten in the pleasures 
and privilege they bring. 

The N Club dance is the farewell of the graduate to midshipman athletics. He carries with him 
into the Fleet or into private life memories of happy days, discouraging defeats, and hard-earned vic- 
tories. From that time on, no matter how far life takes him, he follows Navy sports with the critical 
eye of one who has been and done.

The Army Game 



GOAT-KEEPERS are always chosen for their proven grit and tenacity. Athletes always, they must 
be well qualified to keep "Bill" in the straight and narrow path. No easy task, it includes waking 
Bill when he wants to sleep, and calming him when he wants to ' 'rare and tear. ' ' Tigers especially, they 
have found, arouse his fighting instinct to a very difficult degree. But it is Bill's powerful personality 
that is so outstanding. Those who know him realize why only unusually brave men become Guardians 
and Grooms of His Highness the Goat. 

IN FRONT all the time, and in the spot light for better or for worse — these are the cheer-leaders. To 
much of the country they represent the Academy. Much photographed and admired by the feminine 
(not always at a distance), their work is none the less real and difficult. Together with the Pep Commit- 
tee they are responsible for the Regiment, and at the athletic events that responsibility is their's alone. 
Cooperation is their foundation. With the Regiment, with the teams, and with the coaches, sup- 
port is essential to success. Sportsmanship and courtesy to the opponent is their keynote and their

FOOTBALL is not all playing. Especially is this true at the Naval Academy, where the Regiment is 
even more than a twelfth man on the team. Keeping this temperamental star in training is the task 
of the Pep Committee. 

He is a very delicate person, this Regiment. His diet must be planned, and changed and stuffed, 
and thinned. He must have songs and cheers, but not too many of them. He must have rallies and 
speeches, but the speakers must be careful of their words. He must have signs and posters, paint and 
whitewash, but then sacred ground must be closely guarded. He must be given flares and lots of noise, 
but not at the wrong time. He must have stunts and shows, but they must not bore him. Finally, he 
must be made to work, but only when it is not inconvenient. 

The work of the Committee includes everything from keeping up the bulletin board in "Smoke 
Hall" to sowing cigarettes at the Smokers. Life is full of thrills as the Committee shuttles back and 
forth between the Regiment and the Authorities. Ingenuity is, to say the least, very heavily taxed. 

With it ail, this is the aim of the Pep Committee — the coordination of all efforts towards a happy 
season, win or lose.

THE "little blue book" is a presentation of Naval and Naval Academy customs and traditions, 
mainly for the benefit of the new fourth class. 

Always more than self-sustaining financially, Reef Points this year found its bank account far 
enough ahead of the game to indulge in a few luxuries. Decreased publishing costs made possible a 
growth of some twenty pages; drawings were all renewed and several yard pictures were introduced. 
Innovations such as Naval Academy athletic awards in color, a double page showing midshipman 
ratings in black and gold, and a compendium of the local jargon all made their debut. The result, an 
expansion both in written and pictorial content, has proved gratifying, and it is hoped that future 
staffs will have an incentive to produce some variety in their work from year to year, so that when the 
Regiment receives the list that starts, "I authorize my account to be checked — ," the upper class will 
not feel that they are merely getting a place to keep their marks. 

In the future, the first official contact the new fourth classman makes with that which is to come 
will be by way of Reef Points. Due to the cooperation of our representatives in the Executive Depart- 
ment, the book is now issued during the summer months, the object being to give the new plebe the 
opportunity to assimilate some part of the contents before Academic Years rolls around.

THE Trident Society is one of the few cultural activities of the Academy. Many maintain that in our 
surroundings there is no room for such artistic aspirations. Yet, the Naval Officer must, as a cultural 
gentleman, appreciate and enjoy a taste for the fine things in life. The purpose of the Society is to en- 
courage and foster creative literary efforts and to develop the appreciation of Literature. The power of 
written thought, well expressed, is universally recognized as one of the great forces of our modern 
civilization. The art of literary expression is one which can be an asset of inestimable value to a naval 
officer. Too many officers with dormant and undeveloped talent never make the start. A naval life 
furnishes a most fertile and romantic source of material. It is hoped that through the modest work of 
the Trident in creating a group of "literary conscious" men, future Mahans may be started on illus- 
trious careers. 

The dominating function of the Society is the publication of the Trident Magazine in which our 
first creative efl^orts are printed. The magazine is not held up as an example of polished and finished 
literature — it is rather our laboratory and workshop. Informal meetings constitute our other half. 
Here, the most vital work is performed. By discussing authors, literature, etc., we hope to stimulate 
interest in things literary and acquire a foundation for future study. By the informal conversation, 
the art of self expression is enhanced. Thus, the Trident Society furnishes an outlet for literary en- 
deavor, a medium for drawing together kindred spirits of a common interest in the fine art of conversing 
and writing, and a means of developing our appreciation of things worth while.

INPUT: Wednesday — Seventy-two members of the Log Board and Staff swing into action on the most 
important day of the week. A morning of work by the genial censor leaves still a few miles of galley 
to be cut, pasted, and fitted. There is much speculation, consternation, and juggling of copy, ads, and 
cuts for the afternoon make-up. In the Editorial Ofhce brawls between factions in efforts to get more 
(or less) space must be referred to Ye Ed; and in the next room the painstaking task of proof reading 
leaves many heads in a whirl. When Sick Call's calmorous tocsin sounds, the survivors pack up the 
result and then wearily trudge out, knee deep in piles of shavings and butts that are scattered over the deck. 

Friday — Hardly have the Mates of the Deck finished complaining about the arduous task of 
carrying bundles of the current week's Log around before the Battalion Representatives are seen busily 
making the rounds, seeking copy and cuts for the next week's issue. 

Saturday — The clatter of typewriters is heard from all corners of Bancroft Hall as the unhearalded 
yoemen take upon themselves the task of deciphering the various calligraphies, leaving one less head- 
ache for the staff. 

Sunday — Sports and feature writers work madly all day, and in the evening the Editor and 
Managing Editor tear out reams of hair and tear up reams of paper, ever with one eye on the clock's 
inexorable passage and the other on the interests of the readers.

ALL week long — The business and advertising staff wrestles with the problem of obtaining and keep- 
- ing contented advertisers. They compose frantic telegrams to spur the delivery of late copy and then 
go after another ad to pay for the telegram. The circulations staff wrestles with the ever-recurring 
problem of why Joe's O.A.O. didn't receive her last copy. 

OUTPUT: To the Board and Staff — A feeling of satisfaction and achievement. 

To the Regiment — A few moments of relaxation and amusement — the dope on all the sports, 
including those they did not have a chance to see because the drag had (or was) a flat tire. And from 
the Data, items and vignettes concerning the Fleet they are soon to join. 

To the Fleet — A means of keeping in touch with friends and doings at their Alma Mater — the tie 
that binds the Regiment and the Fleet always in bonds of mutual interests and mutual enthusiasm. 

And to the Families and Sweethearts — A glimpse into those important phases of the building of 
Johnnie's character which so seldom reflects in his letters home — a glimpse that helps them understand.

THIS is the end of the trail, and this our epilogue. Two years behind the typewriter, and we now 
leave our tale for others to condemn or approve. 

We have endeavored to present a faithful picture of all that the four years have been. The general 
outline is there; the details belong to the individual. We present the diary of the class. 

The Lucky Bag is a story within a story. Since early in Second Class Year it has been growing piece 
by piece. The first board meetings, where we learned of engravers, printers, contracts, and bids, brought 
home the enormity of the task. With bids all in and contracts finally signed, the real work that carried 
through the cruise and First Class Year began. 

That summer will long be remembered. The luxurious stateroom that served for an office, with 
its two bunks, two chairs, and wash stand — the energy with which we turned out letters to the O.A.O. 
— the shaving schedule mornings and the sleeping schedule always — the bananas we enjoyed during the 
week out of Galveston — the philosophical, highly elevated conversations in which we indulged — the 
biographies we typed, and the designs and ideas we discussed. All this was the Lucky Bag on cruise.

OUR two months' leave found us with a definite program. The few days spent with Pete and A.F. 
accomplished wonders (and ruined Pete's cigar supply). 

The final and greater part of the work had to wait for First Class Year. Half of that year had 
flown by before we realized that our accomplishments consisted mostly in what we had left to be done 
"tomorrow." During the late winter, the Editorial Office was a perfect picture of feverish concentra- 
tion and prodigal waste of energy. Somehow, the last write-ups were ground out, the last copy went 
to Commander McMorris for his comment, the last photographs were taken, and the last conference 
with Commander Hill was over. Miles away, the book was taking shape — our work was done. 

The few remaining months crept by. Graduation slowly appeared, as the remnants of the four 
year fog reluctantly drifted away. The Lucky Bag arrived — the beginning of the end. 

May it rank with the shoulder marks and the hard earned diploma — a record of four happy years.

WE, TOO, present the Lucky Bag. It has safely passed the storms of depression, though its log 
contains the record of many a narrow escape. The mechanics have had their motor trouble, and 
the advertisers were worried about the fuel, but the landing was made on schedule. Looking back, we 
see the trip was not so bad. The steady winds of cheerful cooperation made our days pleasant ones. It 
was an experience and a happy one; but the most satisfying thought of all is that the hard work was 
not in vain. 

As Second Classmen, we had wondered what the Business Staff really had to do. As we discovered, 
it may be the woman who pays, but the job of the Business Staff is to collect. And the modesty of 
advertisers far exceeds that of the average lady of our acquaintance. 

"Though we appreciate the usefulness and value of an advertisement in the Lucky Bag, we regret 
to state that business conditions make such an expenditure impossible." — this is our theme song; our 
fan mail abounds with similar examples of our popularity. Now that we are going off the air for good, 
how many a firm will miss weekly correspondence! To our public we can only say that all good things 
must come to an end.

THE Regiment will miss our activities: the announcements at noon that such and such a picture will 
be taken in Smoke Park — the resultant scramble for seats — the appointments with Mr. Bennett in 
the rarified atmosphere of the 4th Deck — luring temperamental athletes to the studio — looking pretty 
and smiling for the birdie. Life was variety for the photographic staff. 

The little colored cards and the sales talks that went the rounds with the Company Representatives 
have also made their impression. One bag to the folks at home, one to the O.A.O., another to Aunt 

Lu, and another, and another — addresses; and no addresses, just "Room ;" — engraving, "from 

me to you," "Sally," or simply, "Percival K;" — to whom to give the Silver copy; — and where to get 
the money to pay for it. 

That is the work of the Regiment, and there the work of the staff begins. Behind the scenes the 
organization functions. Cards are classified, orders got to the printer, addresses are checked, the binder 
and the engraver are kept informed. Months of close cooperation are necessary to see that Maggie gets 
her copy in Missouri and that Johnny's three Bags are delivered to his room. June Week comes, the 
Lucky Bag appears, and the book is closed. All that remains is for the Business Manager to collect 
loose ends and make his last report. The Bag is buried — to live forever.

NOEL COWARD, visiting near London, became acquainted with the rudest family in the world. 
"Hay Fever" is a story of this unusual family. The action revolves around the mother, Judith 
Bliss, a retired actress whose desire to return to the stage (Hay Fever, in England) has become an 
obsession. In Judith's universe are a husband, a son, and a daughter — all of them unique to a remark- 
able degree. 

The innocent victims are four week-end guests, each of whom had been invited by one member of 
the family independently of the others. The self-imposed miseries of the family are second only to the 
sufferings of the visitors. The latter divide their time between trying to understand the family and to 
escape them. But the guests generally play a very second fiddle. There is no time that one or another of 
the Bliss family is not master of the situation. The reign of discord is so complete that by nightfall, 
the family has successfully negotiated a divorce and four unexpected engagements. 

It is a mad story, with action unimportant, and acting everything. The play must truly be seen to 
be appreciated. The Bliss family cannot be put on paper, nor can the acting of the midshipmen 
who took the various parts. Therein lies the true secret of "Hay Fever's" overwhelming success. 

There is a long story of hard work behind the half-dozen brilliant performances. Months of selec- 
tive reading by the staff, in which play after play was read and discarded, finally ended with the choice 
of "Hay Fever" for the Masqueraders' 2.4th annual production. 

F. K. Longshore 

Assoc. Prof. R. S. Pease 




IN LOOKING over the cast, one is impressed by the ability that appeared in the fourth class. Three 
plebes, Janney, Gumz, and Ryan starred respectively as Judith, her daughter Sorel, and the maid, 

Janney played the retired actress to perfection. His six feet of height caused him some misgivings, 
but proved an advantage. It added a stateliness that, combined with a wonderful makeup, was enough 
to fool many a man in the audience. His interpretation of the vivacious and theatrical hostess was 
half the show. 

Gumz, was a goodlooking platinum blonde, but in ordinary life is just a boxer. As might be 
expected, there were some minor difficulties encountered in making him feminine. It was also something 
new in the history of the Masqueraders when one day the boxing manager asked if he could be spared 
for a meet that afternoon. 

Ryan, as the family maid, gave a good account of himself in a minor part. In and out of the play 
at intervals, he did his job well. We have been privately informed that his most troublesome difficulty 
was not the acting but the high French heels he had to wear. It was several weeks before he broke them 
of their embarrassing habit of tripping on the carpet. 

The other feminine roles were played by two old hands at the game — Longshore and Sapp. The 
latter, as the shy young flapper, found a part that was ideal for him. A bashful little girl in a rather 
bizarre atmosphere, he was so ingenuously goodlooking that the audience was completely won over. 

Lt. Comdr. W. G. Greenman 

Carl Tiedeman 




IONGSHORE closed his four years in the Masqueraders with a usual good performance. Each year 
-i he has proved a full measure of good action in some feminine role. As Myra Arundel, a very chic 
society matron, his sunny personality was more at home than in previous vampire roles. Both Jackie 
and Myra, with knowledge born of experience, were authorities on the intricacies of feminine wearing 
apparel and proved invaluable to the uninitiated members of the cast. 

The masculine roles were taken by two first classmen and two second classmen, the former acting 
for the first time. KaufFman did well as Simon, the Bohemian son of the family. He threw himself into 
his character so completely that some observers assert the simple part must have been natural to him. 
Moreover, his paintings excited no small degree of interest. Once seen, the reason is obvious. 

Shepherd, also acting for his first and last time at the Academy, was Sandy Tyrell — Judith's pugil- 
istic admirer. His six feet three was enough to make even a tall actress seem small. The show's tailor 
very properly fainted when he saw what he had to fit into the several costumes. 

Erwin, a second classman who started in the Masqueraders as a youngster, stormed through the 
play as Judith's husband, and a novelist in his own right. Kilmartin, a veteran of two years' previous 
experience, was Richard Greatham, a typical English diplomat. Both men gave excellent performances 
and are outstanding for an ability for conscientious and consistent hard work. All in all, the cast was 
of remarkably high quality — in a play which provided opportunities for marvellous acting. 




SO MUCH for the actors themselves, but the story of the show does not stop there. Credit for the 
coordination and smooth running of all activities belongs to Tiedeman, the midshipman director. 
Behind the scenes the work of the Gangs kept the show moving. Behind them were the experts: Mr. 
Schilling, who directed the staging; Mrs. Klawans, who brought the best in spring styles from New 
York; and Mr. Sams, the makeup artist (who once travelled in a troupe with Caruso). Late to join 
the show was Lt. Comdr. Greenman, the Officer Representative. He quickly made himself invaluable 
in all contacts with the Executive Department. With his help, requests of all sorts were swiftly guided 
through the usually annoying maze of red tape. Gangs, experts, and advisors, all were essential to 

A good criterion of success is progress. Behind the Masqueraders stands an enviable record of in- 
creasing popularity and development. Behind this record stands one man to whom, more than to any- 
one else, must go the credit. Since 1518, Mr. Pease has been directing and advising. Too much cannot 
be said for him; the perfect example of the man whose whole heart is in his work. His is the heart of 
the Show. 

Beautiful women, a good laugh, and "Hay Fever" — the Masqueraders again. 




MUSIC and the Navy have been closely associated ever since the time when the tarheels on the old 
square-riggers used to gather on the poopdeck to sing of their sweethearts and wives whom they 
had left behind. Today more than ever, the men of our Navy enjoy the relaxation that comes with the 
after-supper hour of singing. Recent installations of sound apparatus on board have greatly promoted 
this worth while amusement. 

Music at the Naval Academy takes on a broader and more extensive aspect. The Orchestra, Glee 
Club, N. A. Ten, and Mandolin Club make it possible for highly diversified talents to find an outlet 
for their particular musical abilities. The pompous music of Wagner, the improvisation of Gershwin, 
the striking chorals of Speaks, and the ultra-modern in Jazz are found in the accomplishments of these 
Clubs. The culmination of several months work is marked by the annual production of the Combined 
Musical Clubs early in the spring. 

Not since 1930 has an attempt been made toward continuity in one of these shows. This year it 
was decided to return to a show produced with a continuity as manifested by a light thread of plot. 
The story was original with Tom Long. With the help of Frey, the two were instrumental in develop- 
ing the plot and writing the lines. 

The show this spring was a musical comedy based on the fanciful dream of a 1 P. O. In his dream, 
he sees the status of a x P. O. which is the exact antithesis of the realism of everyday life in the Hall 
for the X P. O. The dream comprises the show. After a short prologue in which the i P. O. falls asleep

on the Mate's desk, the drop comes up on an elaborate throne-room setting. King Twopeyo, seated on 
his splendorous throne, rules the land in which the stripers — the Greasy Five — are his subjects. He has 
invited a blind drag, the Princess Purina of Baltimore, to his palace for a dance. She accepts and the 
king is so enthusiastic he calls a holiday in the Royal Domain. Entertainment is provided by the Royal 
Entertainers — The N. A. Ten and the Glee Club. A conductor enters the room and breathlessly explains 
to the king that the Greasy Five stopped the W. B. and A. and kidnapped Princess Purina. Fraught with 
anger, the king decides to attack the den of the Greasy Five and rescue the stolen Princess. Plee Bo 
suggests a less violent plan of disguising himself as one of their tribe and going to their den in the 
forest; then when the opportunity is ripe he can steal away from the cave and back to the palace with 
Princess Purina. Plee Bo accomplishes this mission successfully. The Greasy Five, on learning this, 
plan to attack the palace and destroy the rule of King Twopeyo. The king plans a counter-attack, and 
the battle ensues. In the midst of the battle, Plee Bo comes in with Princess Purina, but alas! she is a 
"brick" and King Twopeyo is very disappointed. The kingdom of the z P. O. is overthrown and the 
curtain comes down. The D. O. has interrupted the dream of the x P. O., who hits the report for being 
asleep on watch. A grand finale in the throne-room makes the last scene. 

We are indebted to the tireless efforts and interests of our Officer Representative, Lt. (j. g.) W. G. 
Beecher; our Musical Advisor, Professor J. W. Crosley; and to Mr. R. S. Pease. To them and to the 
men who took part and cooperated so as to make the year successful, we wish to express our sincere 
appreciation and thanks.

"* I 'HE N. A. TEN has permission to leave the Messhall at will." Shortly afterward the melancholy 

J- strains of discordant tuning float down from Smoke Hall, and as the meal ends the Regiment is 

greeted with "Anchors Aweigh" or the "Bugle Call Rag." Every Friday evening the program is the 

same, as half an hour of good music is offered to those who lack the solace of a radio or a victrola. 

"Friday evening and another week gone bye-bye," with the help of the N. A. Ten. 

These disciples of Duke Ellington are veteran musicians. Most of them played in some dance 
orchestra or another before coming here, and their interest in music has, if anything, increased. Many 
an upper classman among them now visions the delicious prospect of a job in the familiar tootings of 
his piccolo. 

These, our entertainers, are devotes of modern music, and sincerely believe in its overwhelming 
superiority as compared to the classics. Enemies of military rhythm, the more barbaric and pagan 
the tune, the better they like it. Theirs is the artistic temperament; its foundation — the "Tiger Rag" 
and "The St. Louis Blues." Imperishable, both they and the N. A. Ten have stood the acid test of time. 

J. E. Bullock 





The N. A. Ten is active throughout the year. During football season they are an important part of 
each Pep Meeting and Smoker. Later on they burst into society and imitate Guy Lombardo at a First 
Class Hop. By their own statement, they find it highly inspiring to have members of the fair sex danc- 
ing to their music. But the high spot of the musical year is the Musical Club Shov^^. Then, as at no 
other time, is their glory undimmed. 

This year they were King Twopeyo's Court Orchestra, always ready to blare forth at the slightest 
wish. They also furnished sound effects and interpreted a great number of scenes. Their repertoire con- 
tained catchy refrains for the comedy, ominous dirges for the dirty work, sentimental songs for the 
love scenes, and blood stirring rhythm for the battles. For the sentimental numbers, a singing trio 
rendered old-fashioned barber-shop harmony, and Plebe with a talented voice gave an imitation of 
Byng Crosby. 

During the early stages of rehearsal the Ten ran into several interesting difficulties . They had , primar- 
ily, to get a good deal of music — and sheet music is expensive. The difficulty was solved by appropriat- 
ing the music belonging to the band. Whereupon, the directors of the show decided that in order to 
conform to the continuity it would be better for them to play without any music at all! 

Throughout the year the chord of the Ten is cooperation. In the spring, a new note appears: — the 
Spirit of the Show — the will to put it on and put it over.

IT'S the opening night of the spring musical revue. The Hall is packed. Midshipmen 
and drags impatiently await the curtain, the former hoping that some classmate 
may miss his cue, the latter just waiting for some luckless misstep of the pseudo- 
females. Down front in the pit, the strings are softly plucking in hasty, final tuning, 
and the Orchestra is ready to begin. Now the maestro has entered. A hushed expect- 
ancy settles over the house. The director raps lightly on his stand — the baton is 
poised — suddenly it crashes downward, and the Symphony swings into the perfect 
harmony of Tannhauser. But that is the finish — the culmination of a long winter's 

rehearsing. Night after night these same musicians 
^.^^^^^ have gathered in the music rooms of Bancroft Hall 

lH^^||l^^ to work on their scores. It has been a long and 

^^K| happy season, even though we did miss a few notes 

m ▼ and played a blue one now and then. Once again a 

little Symphony has been created. Once again our 
work is over. In coming years, new faces will stand 
behind the flutes and oboes. New and other first- 
night audiences will be waiting for the thrilling 
word — "On with the show!"

GOOD old King Twopeyo reigned over a mighty kingdom — and most of his sub- 
jects belonged to the Glee Club. It was probably due to the strain of melody in 
his soul that he surrounded himself with such a musical court. An irrepressible group 
they proved to be. From start to finish they lived, laughed, sang, and suffered with 
His Royal Highness. In the end they died for him. And the Glee Club enjoyed it. 

Their repertoire contained a little of everything: provocative airs from light 
opera, impressive selections from the classics, stirring songs of the sea, and well- 
known popular pieces. While the Orchestra was looking for the Lost Chord, the 
Glee Club offered the Music of the Spheres. 

We may not all be able to sing, but for those 
who can, the Glee Club is an opportunity. It is the 
only one of the Musical Clubs which requires no 
unusual talent other than a love of singing and a 
decent voice. Of course, there are scoffers who 
doubt that last requirement. However, the Glee 
Club remains a triple opportunity; to sing, to act, 
and to enjoy doing it.

WITH music in their hearts and melody at their finger tips, the Mandolins flit in and out of the 
Musical Club Show. They are a band of wandering gypsies in the land of the 2. P. O. In the 
spirit of the show, even they are not themselves — principally because of the conspicuous absence of 
mandolins. Guitars, banjos, and a violin suit them just as well. These modern minstrels are musicians 
by natural inclination. They even spurn written music, trusting the harmony in their souls to burst 
forth when called upon. 

The call comes frequently and in varied forms. Old favorites like "Star Dust" and "Mood Indigo" 
are intermingled with others like "Night and Day," "Whispering," and "San. "The banjos play a little 
of everything in their regular program and then add some specialties that are brand new. Novelty 
numbers include a banjo trio and a guitar and violin duet. Hawaiian tunes with Chung Hoon singing 
add a realistic touch to the scene. Incidentally, the versatile Hawaiian is the author of one of the 

The banjos are such an overwhelming success that we feel it best to warn the very impressionable. 
Gypsy life was never like this.

BEHIND the scenes at the Masqueraders and the Musical Show is an organization of handy men, 
inventors, and architects — the Stage Gang. Theirs is the responsibility for the professional appearance 
of the stage. To them falls the task of handling the settings and if devising the trick stage effects that 
make the stage an ever inviting realm of mystery. Under their magic touch, a modernistic hotel suite 
is transformed into the majestic throne room of some medieval king in the twinkling of an eye. 

Theatrical art is not the end of their activity, however, for they also realize the value of develop- 
ing the social side of life. Many enjoyable afternoons are spent in long sessions around the "Joe Pot." 

Unlike the actor, their toils are confined to the regions behind the velvet, where the glamour of 
the dazzling foots and colored spots is not experienced. Their reward lies in the realization of days that 
have been well spent. Few will ever forget the thrill that comes over then when the house lights fade, 
the foots come up, and the whispered "Up curtain" issues from the back stage shadows.

BUSINESS GANG— Petrie, Drumtra, Ellis 

Dale Mayberry 
Business Manager 

OUTCOME must equal ingo. "Yes, ma'am, tickets are on sale at Al Moore's and at the Officer's Club." 
Bills and more bills. "It's rather late, sir, but I'll gladly try to get those tickets for you. "A thousand 
accounts to check. Advertisements, photographs, programs, et cetera ad infinatum, and the Business 
Gang calls it an easy day. 

High finance men for the Clubs and the Masqueraders, they truly pay and pay and pay. Their word 
is final in every fiscal question from allotments to International Debts. The Director of the Budget 
watches his millions no more carefully than the Business Manager his hundreds. And the latter is far 
more successful. 

Custodians of "real evidence," the Property Gang deals in everything from hardware to herring. 
Their two real jobs consist first of all, in getting the necessary properties, and then afterwards, in taking 
care of them. They would probably consider the latter task the harder. 

What the Business Gang pays for, the Property Gang first must order. Silverware, china, eggs, 
flowers, and — hardest of all to find — a seltzer bottle — these were among the many neccessities. There 
is a story behind that seltzer bottle. It belongs to a certain professor . . . ! These are details, but in the 
final analysis, the smooth running of the show depends on the energy of its back stage workers — ■ 
in Academy slang, the Gangs.

MANY have seen the Juice Gang's imitation of the Great White Way. Very few realize the work 
that is necessary to make one of these electric signs. Likewise few people realize how complicated 
the design of an ordinary sign may be. 

The men comprising the Juice Gang are, as a rule, much more interesting than their work. As a 
group, they are not athletically minded and yet are far from lazy. In choosing something to do, they 
have selected electricity as an outlet for their energy. They are usually more or less "savvy," but they 
never star. In fact, it is traditional for the Head of the Gang to be unsat in Juice! These statements are 
more or less paradoxical, but they are true none the less. The chief requirement for membership is an 
affinity for hard work in large doses. Many forego the pleasures of dragging in order to work on their 
cherished projects. But, and here is another paradox, they are usually married a few short months 
after graduation. 

This ability to work hard is quickly proved by a glance at the yearly program. In a time necessarily 
limited by the demands of Academics, the Gang turns out a sign for each of the shows given by the 
masqueraders, the Navy Relief, and the Musical Clubs, in addition to furnishing electrical effects and 
stage lighting. Other smaller projects include electrical effects and lighting for the N Club and Ring 
Dances as well as special illumination for Pep Signs or for the Yard. 

Unsung, uncheered, but often asked to help, the Juice Gang does its job well — and likes it.

NAVY'S football season was not one which we will look back upon as the brightest spot in our 
four years at the Academy. But it is one that will constantly serve to remind us that the spirit 
of the Navy and the men in it are unconquerable. Fresh from the transition of Ingram to Miller 
the team had not begun to show the effects of the drilling that the new coaching staff had applied nor 
to produce the results on the score board that are possible for a team thoroughly indoctrinated in the 
deception and speed of the Rockne system. Nevertheless some of the strongest colleges in the country 
were met and at no time was a single touchdown conceded. As the season progressed so did the caliber 
of the squads opposing us and it was not until we hit a lesser opponent like Maryland that we realized 
the development and power that had come to the Navy team after the first game against William and 
Mary on October first. The Army game went down in history as a loss, as did the annual tilt with the 
Irish. It was in the latter game, perhaps more than the former, that the Blue and Gold displayed the most 
dogged tenacity and stubborn resistance seen on any gridiron. But considered all in all the season was 
indicative of many things — the prospects for coming years are excellent, the wealth of material that 
can be developed under the new system was recognized for the first time, the plan of meeting only the 
best teams is sound and will inevitably produce a championship squad at the Academy.

Miller, Coach 



Hardin, Foster, Flanagan, Miller, O'Brien, Underwood, Ortland 


Rip Miller was the head coach for the second year and as his assistants again he had Christy 
Flanagan and Johnny O'Brien, the latter working the ends, the former the backs. Because the situation 
of the guards was difficult Gordon Underwood returned from the fleet to act as line coach. 

As regarded attendance Navy played before capacity crowds in three games, Penn, Notre Dame and 
Army. In the latter game a large percentage of the proceeds was turned over to charity, the unique plan 
of sending a fixed sum to the home towns of each player being used for the first time. 

Among the players themselves Captain Reedy was inspiring, a leader in all games and a capable 
defender of our rights on the gridiron. At center the work of Harbold was outstanding. Kane and 
Brooks managed the tackle positions, while Pray and Murray played steady football as ends. In the 
backfield Chung-Hoon was the stellar halfback closely seconded by Borries, likewise Walkup, Samuels, 
and Clark performed well. Slack received the call at quarterback but Becht saw service in every game. 
Campbell and Erck played their last games for Navy at fullback and were powers on the defense. 


Just as in past years we opened the season with what was expected to be "another target practice 
for the Middies," the annual tilt with William and Mary. The day was ideal and a large and enthusias- 
tic crowd was on hand to see what was in store for the coming fall. At first it appeared that a strong

running attack would quickly put an end to effectual W and M resist- 
ance but as the opening period wore along it became equally apparent 
that this was a real contest and that our inexperienced men were find- 
ing worthy opponents in an unusually powerful and determined team 
from the oldest college in America. To start things ofFErck ran the 
kick-off back thirty yards. An exchange of punts netted Navy ten 
yards and after a series of neatly executed end runs the situation 
began to look very promising until a fumbled pass, Chung-Hoon to 
Becht, lost a sure touchdown for us. William and Mary was unable 
to do very much with the line plunges they tried and so elected to 
kick and the period ended with Navy endeavoring to maneuver 
back into a striking position. 

The second period was a repetition of the first and was marred 
somewhat by ragged playing on the parts of the Middies and by too 
frequent penalties. Both teams spent the entire time trying to pene- 
trate the opposing line and except for occasional passes which in 
most cases were knocked down the quarter passed uneventfully. Navy 
tried a new backfield but the change was without noticeable 

In the third period we got the surprise of our lives when W and M 
fell on a fumble on our thirty-three-yard line and proceeded to make 
the only touchdown of the day made by either team. Palese, the 
Indian halfback, continued his good work by making twenty yards 
around our right end and then before either Campbell or Chung- 
Hoon could stop him he wormed his way across the goal line on the 
next play. 

An astounded and heartsick Regiment watched the team strive 
valiantly in the remaining period to overcome the lead of a team that 
had tasted victory over Navy for the first time and was playing the 
game of their lives; but, inexperience coupled with costly errors 
rendered long runs and well directed passes ineffective and the whistle 
blew with the ball on W and M's twenty-yard line after an incom- 
pleted pass, Chung-Hoon to Murray, had failed to tie the score by a 
matter of inches. Score: Navy, o; W and M, 6.

In the second game of the season what we had been hoping to 
find in our team was there to a marked degree. Washington and Lee 
went down to defeat to the satisfying tune of 33-0 as a completely 
rejuvenated Navy team demonstrated unmistakably what happens 
when a line opens up big, wide holes on the offense and on the de- 
fense proves to be a solid wall. Chung-Hoon led the attack as he 
rounded the ends time and time again for substantial gains and 
slipped through the line to add five yards when needed to make a 
first down. His passes to Pray and Walkup were well-directed and 
were consistently good for plenty of yardage. 

A thirty yard pass, Chung-Hoon to Walkup, followed by three 
plunges and an end run netted the first score early in the initial quar- 
ter. The second tally came late in the second quarter when a new 
Navy backfield succeeded in working the ball well down into 
W and L territory where a beautiful pass, Baumberger to Borries, 
was good for twenty-five yards and another touchdown. 

About the middle of the third period we scored again when 
Chung-Hoon and Walkup smashed their way from the center of the 
field to a touchdown. The principal display of power by the Generals 
came in this period when they opened up a passing attack that was 
too short lived to become dangerous; interceptions by our backfield 
gave us the ball to pave the way for another slashing attack sustained 
and carried to a successful close by Billy Clark who reminded us a 
whole lot of Lou Kirn. 

A few moments before the final curtain another intercepted 
W and L pass was turned into a touchdown when Dick Kibbe aided 
by perfect interference ran fifty yards through an amazed and help- 
less field of fallen Generals. Score: Navy, 33; W and L, o.

The fifteenth of October presented us with a very unexpected and 
extremely bitter pill to swallow. From way out West in Ohio a hardy 
band of determined Athenians representing Ohio University on the 
gridiron defeated an equally determined but still woefully inex- 
perienced Navy team. Capable of advancing at will with well exe- 
cuted end runs and off-tackle smashes we couldn't hold the ball long 
enough to find out what would happen once we were in Ohio terri- 
tory. Fumbles all through the first half marred every Navy scoring 
threat, and substituting other backs didn't seem to remedy the situa- 
tion any. Substantial gains by Walkup and Chung-Hoon were 
nullified by Ohio players piling onto Navy fumbles. At no time did 
the Ohio running attack function consistently and not until the Bob- 
cats resorted to the aerial game were they able to turn in any first 

At the close of the second quarter a fumble by Walkup gave Ohio 
the ball on the Navy forty-five-yard line. Unable to advance they 
elected to kick, which kick was fumbled by Chung-Hoon, and it was 
the Bobcats' ball on our twenty-eight yard line. Two passes, one for 
eleven and the other for fifteen, put the ball on the three inch line and 
Fehn, the Ohio fullback, punched it over from there. The half closed 
before more than two plays could be called after the kick-off. 

The third period opened with Navy assuming the offensive 
which was only short lived; and ended with the ball in Ohio's posses- 
sion and Navy playing rather listless ball. On the fourth play of the 
last quarter Brown took the ball on a triple pass and, slowly retreat- 
ing from seemingly bewildered Navy linemen, passed directly into 
the arms of Sintic, Bobcat lefthalf, who was over the goal line and 
unmolested by Navy backs that seemed to be cemented in their tracks. 
Futile passes by Navy against an exceedingly wary opponent occu- 
pied the remainder of the game and resulted in no score. Score: 
Navy, o; Ohio U., 14. 









On Saturday the imd, we rose early and made our way to Prince- 
ton to play a game that the majority of the press writers had conceded 
to the Tigers. The usual crowd of enthusiastic backers were in 
attendance and the game started off like a whirlwind. Captain Reedy 
won the toss and elected to receive; and "Soupy" Campbell who 
caught the kick ran it back to the thirty-five-yard line. On the first 
play Walkup made twenty yards around left end. A long pass, 
Chung-Hoon to Murray, put the ball on Princeton's ten yard marker 
and it looked as though it was going to be a Nassau massacre from 
start to finish. On the next play Chung-Hoon made three through the 
center of the line but received a rap on the head and on the following 
play was thrown for a ten yard loss. Two attempted passes were 
knocked down and the first Navy scoring threat was over. A minute 
later a penalty on Princeton gave Navy the ball only eight yards from 
the Tiger goal line. Again the Tiger forward wall was able to resist 
the thrusts at its center and on the last down the Navy pass was bat- 
ted down. The remainder of the first half was devoted to Navy work- 
ing the ball well down into Princeton territory only to have the 
Nassau defense stiffen and keep the score board clear of any points. 

In the second half Princeton made her only scoring threat but 
a penalty of five yards for offside and some great work on the parts 
of Harbold and Brooks rendered the efl^ort futile. For the entire time 
we had the ball it was possible to make good gains; but every time 
we got close to the Tiger goal the Princetonians held. By far the 
biggest line and backfield we have met this season Princeton pre- 
sented a nicely balanced team which was hard to handle and the 
score indicates a hard fought and well played game. Score: Navy, o; 
Princeton, o. 



















The last Saturday of October saw us on our way to Philadelphia 
bright and early for the annual tilt with the boys from Quaker Town. 
While Franklin Field was the very backyard of the Penn boys, it had 
been mighty kind to Navy in the past three years and with the Army 
game to be played there it seemed that Lady Luck should have let 
us make a tradition out of the game. But she didn't. 

The quarter opened with Navy receiving and defending the 
East goal; Campbell took the kick-off and ran back to the thirty- 
yard line before he was downed. Two plays followed by the Chung- 
Hoon special — a quick kick — put the ball well down in Penn's 
territory. Penn tried to run twice and then elected to kick also and 
it was Navy's ball on her own twenty-yard line. For the remainder 
of the quarter the game resolved itself into a kicking duel between 
Clark and Perina with Bill doing admirably against a light wind. 

Immediately after the second period opened; the attack of Penn 
commenced to get under way and Navy with her back to the goal 
line was forced to repel a touchdown charge time and again when it 
was only a matter of feet that Penn had to go. Shortly before the half 
closed a combination of end runs and ofF-tackle smashes brought the 
ball to Navy's ten-yard line where an end zone pass was knocked by 
Bill Clark into the arms of an alert Penn back. Before the half 
closed Chung-Hoon got away for forty yards before he was downed 
by the safety man. 

Plenty of power all through the second half kept Navy on the 
defensive most of the time and finally netted Penn another touch- 
down when Munger ran untouched across the goal line after making 
fifteen yards behind perfect interference. A spasmodic passing attack 
by Navy kept Penn on the alert constantly but at no time did we 
threaten to score until Borries ran forty yards through a broken field 
and brought the ball to the Penn ten-yard line. Here Penn held even 
as we had held earlier in the game and the whistle blew before we 
tied again. Score: Navy, o; Penn, 14.

One of the three undefeated teams in the East descended upon 
Annapolis on Saturday, the fifth of November, anticipating an easy 
game. The fact that Columbia achieved the victory they expected by 
no means tells the story of the game. An extra point after a touch- 
down was the slim margin by which the game went to the Light 
Blue; a blocked kick which was hastily snatched up into the arms of 
a Columbia tackle who scooted across the goal line with the ball 
was the factor that gave them their only touchdown and sent Navy 
down in defeat for the second successive Saturday. 

The opening kick-off went to Navy who chose to defend the 
North goal. Columbia soon kicked to Navy and there followed an 
exchange of punts in which Navy earned a considerable gain of 
yardage. The Navy running attack ran smoothly and it was not 
necessary to resort to passes to register gains. Twice the ball was 
worked well down into the Light Blue territory before a weak kick 
by Brominski gave Navy the ball on Columbia's thirty-five-yard line. 
A succession of short but definite gains by Chung-Hoon and Borries 
worked the ball to the six-yard line from which Chung-Hoon by 
skirting his own right end carried the ball across. The try for point 
by Borries was a little wide and the score stood at Navy, 6; Col- 
umbia, o. 

After the start of the second half both teams opened up with all 
their scoring power and the ball went from one end of the field to 
the other as the successive attacks were repelled. On one play before 
the third period closed a Light Blue tackle hurtled through the line 
and threw himself in front of Chung-Hoon's kick and then grabbing 
the ball he ran, aided by the blocking of his teammates, untouched 
across the Navy goal line. The game thereafter was given over to 
Navy trying to regain the lead and to Columbia's determined opposi- 
tion. Score: Navy, 6; Columbia, 7.

Playing heads up football throughout the game, a determined 
Navy eleven smashed to smithereens the strongest defenses that could 
be mustered by an outclassed Maryland team and ended up with a 
top-heavy 2.8-7 score. The first quarter was dominated by the general 
excellence of play of Gordon Chung-Hoon. He was in every play 
and made long runs for substantial gains. He took the opening kick- 
off and returned it to Navy's twenty-three-yard line. The first play 
went for six yards with Chung-Hoon carrying the ball off-tackle. 
Two downs later he skirted right end for another first down on the 
eleven-yard line. The very next play he carried the ball over for the 
first touchdown of the afternoon, a driving smash off right tackle. 
Score: Navy, 6; Maryland, o. Borries took the kick-off on his own 
twenty-five-yard line and ran it back to Maryland's thirty. He fol- 
lowed up by a seven yard off-tackle buck and Campbell made it first 
and ten on a line smash. Borries ran ten yards through their line. 
With the ball on the seven yard line Chung-Hoon crashed through 
right guard for the touchdown. Campbell made good the extra point 
— Navy, 13 ; Maryland, o. The rest of^the first quarter was spent with 
Chung-Hoon and Borries running Maryland to death. 

The march continued. Borries pulled his second great act of the 
day. Aided by beautiful interference and using a well judged change 
of pace, he got beyond all Maryland men but two. Bud Slack blocked 
out one and the other never did figure out which way Borries was 
heading until he saw him flash by for a touchdown. Navy, 19; 
Maryland, o. 

Navy started the second half with the same lineup. Slack ran 
the kick to the forty-three-yard marker. Borries then journeyed 
around end for thirteen yards. The next play was a pass. Slack to 
Borries, which was completed and was good for another touchdown. 
Final score: Navy, 1.8; Maryland, o.

Outweighed more than ten pounds to the man, Captain Reedy 
and his mates displayed for four quarters the finest exhibition of 
defensive football seen on any gridiron this season. Time and again 
the drive and power of two Irish backfields threatened to wipe from 
the face of the map the battered and weary Blue and Gold eleven. 
But grimly determined and fully cognizant of the impregnable char- 
acter of the South Benders' forward wall the Navy team resolved 
to do or die in that branch of football — the defense — wherein fight 
and stubborn invincibility may turn back the tide and courage of 
any offensive team. Twice on the very goal line for four downs the 
Navy Blue dug in hard and refused to be dissuaded by any feat of 
power or strategy that the men of Notre Dame could call upon. The 
Irish second team backfield in general and Joe Sheeketski in particu- 
lar in the lone second quarter, were responsible for the two touch- 
downs of the day. 

The first Irish touchdown came as a result of a thirty-yard pass 
Lukats to Murphy followed by a play in which every Navy man was 
perfectly blocked out to let Sheeketski go across standing up. Again 
in the same period, but this time a pass, brought the sons of Notre 
Dame six more points. Lukats to Sheeketski was responsible; though 
the latter was hit the instant his hand clutched the ball, he fell over 
the line. Anderson now sent in Melinkovitch and Company but to 
no avail. From this point on the Navy was unconquerable. 

The third period was marked by the one Navy threat when 
Chung-Hoon passed to Murray for thirty yards, bringing the ball to 
Notre Dame's forty. In the final period, three times did the Irish 
penetrate beyond our ten yard marker. Melinkovitch plunged, Koken 
knifed, Jaskwich passed, but all was vain. Each time the Navy line 
backed by Campbell, Borries and Chung-Hoon stopped them. The 
game ended after Clark had punted out of danger and Kane had 
recovered an Irish fumble. Not a man in the Regiment doubted the 
outcome of the Army game now! Score: Navy, o; Notre Dame, ii 








Before a throng of 78,000 people who had come to witness 
resumption of athletic competition between the Military and Naval 
Academies, a stronger, bigger Army team recovered from a surprise 
initial shock administered by the Blue-clad warriors to register a 
io-o victory over a bunch of the scrappiest, fightin'est men that have 
ever represented the Navy on the gridiron. 

Army's touchdowns were made in the second and fourth quar- 
ters. "Pick" Vidal, who was the most elusive man on the field, hit 
the right side of the Navy line for the last two yards as a climax to 
a fifty-four-yard march for the first cadet score, and then held the ball 
while Buckler converted to put Army ahead 7-0. The second tally 
came after Army had been checked on the Navy thirty-yard line at 
the start of the fourth quarter; Buckler took a lateral from Kilday, 
faded back to the forty, then with calm deliberation unleashed a pass 
"in the groove" to Frentzel, waiting three yards from the goal line; 
the latter snagged it and fell over the goal line as he was hit by a 
Navy tackier. Buckler was also responsible for the final score. Aided 
by MacWilliams and Stancook, he tore through the nearly exhausted 
Navy defense to make first down after first down. The Navy line 
pulled itself together for a great effort and threw back two cadet 
plunges from the three yard mark, when Buckler took advantage of 
the drawn-in Navy defense to circle his own left wing and cross the 
goal line standing up. 

Navy's big opportunity came at the outset when, with the 
second-string backfield in, an offensive was launched which carried 
right down to the shadow of the Army goal-posts. Army had posses- 
sion of the ball in midfield and attempted a pass which Fid Murray 
intercepted on the Army forty-eight. Bill Clark, aided by Ben 
Walkup, then took the ball down to the Army thirteen. But Army, 
now thoroughly aroused, proceeded to hurl back two attempts for 
losses and another for no gain. On fourth down. Slack attempted to 













pass, but was hurried, and the ball went directly to Fields, who inter- 
cepted it, and returned the ball to the twenty-three-yard line before 
being forced out. What was to prove to be Navy's only good chance 
to score had been lost. 

Army's first touchdown drive was begun shortly after the second 

Eeriod began. The subsequent kick-off was received by Navy, the ball 
eing kept between the thirty-yard lines thereafter. Navy refused to 
play a defensive game, and took chances time and again in an effort to 
even up the score. Passes were freely tried, but few of them proved 
successful. Chung-Hoon threatened several times, but his heaves were 
going just too far or not quite far enough. He was hurried by the 
charging Army forwards, and his receivers were well-covered by the 
Army secondary. Twice in this period, Chung was caught for fifteen- 
yard losses before he could get the ball away. Buzz Borries' fumble, 
recovered by Burlingame on the Navy forty-nine, gave Army a break, 
and led the way for the score which came early in the final chukker. 
A forward pass. Buckler to Burlingame, coming soon after this, was 
good for a gain of seventeen yards; with the ball on the twenty-five 
and first down, the quarter ended. It was soon after this that Buckler 
tossed to Frentzel for the second Army score; his try for the extra 
point went wide. 

Army kicked off for the third time; Navy's play grew even more 
desperate at this stage of the game; all caution was abandoned. Too, 
the regulars who had been playing constantly, were visibly tiring 
under the strain of a terrifically hard game; the sun and the very warm 
temperature were taking their toll. Both teams were penalized 
for extra time-outs. Navy punted after receiving two consecutive 
penalties for incompleted forward passes, and Army obtained the ball 
on Navy's forty. It was then that Buckler and Company started their 
smashing, knifing, and weaving through the tired Navy line which 
culminated in Buckler's end run around the right Navy wing for the 
last score. This time his try via the placement kick was good for the 
extra point, and the score rested at 2.0-0.

Two losses, out of sixteen starts, gave Navy the most successful season which she has ever enjoyed. 
Both of these defeats, one at the hands of Pennsylvania, and the other by the big guns of the 
University of Pittsburgh, were so hotly contested, and the margin of victory so small, that noth- 
ing else but Luck turned the tide. During the ten-week schedule Navy met the most formidable 
array of Basketball talent in the East, so that the final result was, indeed, an enviable one. 

The opening game of the season, with William and Mary, gave an indication of great potential 
power on the part of the Navy Five, which won handily by a score of 57-46. 

The following Saturday brought the Columbia Lions to Annapolis and the same night saw them 
return homeward bearing the brunt of a 56-31 defeat. The New York team, which had been viewed 
with considerable alarm by pre-season prophets, was never able to get started and was smothered under 
an avalanche of Navy goals from the opening whistle to the final gong. 

Columbia was the last game before Christmas Leave so that the first team to meet Navy in the 
year 1933 was Franklin and Marshall. The Pennsylvanians were downed easily 47-2.1, and Coach Wilson 
seized the opportunity of seasoning as many of the squad as possible.

The following Wednesday saw the defeat of American University, which, although a small school, 
has in previous years been very much the bane of Navy Basketball Teams. This season saw a comfortable 
margin separating Navy's 39 from American's 14. 

In the Saturday game of that w^ek Navy, growing more powerful each game, doubled the count 
on Duke University at 44-11. The Blue Devils who several years ago were accustomed to victories over 
Navy, never seriously threatened and were so outclassed that for thirteen minutes during the second 
half they were unable to make a tally while Navy was scoring 18 points. 

Another Wednesday game saw Lafayette College defeated 49-18. The game turned out to be just 
another target practice for Navy, despite the fact that Loughlin and Kastein were both out because 
of injuries. 

Then came the first defeat of the season, and like last year's it was administered by Pennsylvania 
University. The game which took place in the Philadelphia Palestra, saw first one team and then the 
other take a momentary lead. In the last minute of the game Pennsylvania completed two long shots 
and a foul and the home team was victorious 38-34.

The following Saturday the University of Maryland was the 
victim. The Old Liners, who had been one of the few teams to beat 
Navy last year, were swept off their feet by the fast cutting trio of 
Borries, Loughlin, and Dornin who accounted for most of the 53-2.1 
score. This game was especially of interest for it marked the deciding 
contest in the nine game series which the two schools have had in 
recent years. The result of the game was to give Navy the edge, five 
games to four. 

Overcoming an early lead, garnered by Western Maryland in the 
opening minutes of the contest. Navy swamped the Green Terrors on 
the Wednesday game after Maryland's defeat by a score of 45-18. 
Coach Wilson started the Subs, but they could not hold the visitors 
and he found it necessary to insert the first string midway in the first 
half with Navy trailing 6-i. From there on it was easy sailing and 
the Blue and Gold emerged easily victorious. 

Three days after Western Maryland the best team to come out of 
the South to face Navy appeared on the Dahlgren Hall Court. The 
University of North Carolina, coached by the former Army All-Eastern 
Guard, Bo Sheppard, proved a fast and aggressive quintet and forced 
Navy to the greatest heights which she had displayed during the 
season. The Tar Heels came back at the middle of^the first period to 



• .y^-'^f 













snatch from Navy the lead which she had gathered in the opening 
minutes. It required the complete cooperation of each man on the 
team to again force Navy into the lead. The second half saw a 
weakening of the visitors' attack and Navy finished by piling up the 
huge total of 66 points to 44 for North Carolina. 

The next team to meet Navy were the Cavaliers of the University 
of Virginia. The Virginians, whom Navy barely defeated by one 
point last season, were eager for revenge, and although they put up 
a splendid exhibition that had Navy a bit worried at times, the out- 
come was never really in doubt and the Blue and Gold won handily 
47-2.6. The Crimson accounted for most of their tallies during the 
second session while Navy's second stringers were in action. 

The twelfth and thirteenth victories of the season were made 
to order for Navy as she encountered V.M.I, and Lehigh University 
in the same week. The Virginia Military Institute contest which was 
a Wednesday game was a terrible walk-away with Navy going in for 
some long distance hiking. The Virginia lads were at somewhat of a 
disadvantage as a result of a hard game with Maryland on the night 
before and were unable to ward off the attacks of either the first or 
second strings. The latter played the entire second half, raised the 
final score from 36-7 where it stood at the half, to the 51-19 which 
marked the end of the contest. 











- » , 






Navy once more surpassed the half-century mark in the Lehigh 
struggle, the Pennsylvanians falling by the wayside with a 56-39 
defeat staring them in the face. 

The second game of the season lost by Navy occurred on the 
following Saturday. Pittsburgh appeared on the scene with one of 
the strongest teams in the country. The contest which was staged 
before a capacity crowd, assembled in the Armory, was nip and tuck 
from start to finish. Unfortunately for Navy the bell rang just before 
she was able to finish her last scoring spurt which for a moment 
looked as though it might not be in vain. The final count was Pitts- 
burgh 31, Navy 19. Thus ended the last game of the regular schedule. 

One of the most brilliant starts of the season was carried through 
to a smashing victory when the Navy team journeyed to Harvard. 
The Cambridge lads never threatened; their best efforts could only 
hold the final score to 49-2.2.. 

On Inauguration Day, March 4th, Navy met West Point in a 
post-season game, according to the new "entente cordiale" between 
the two schools. The game was played at Annapolis before a crowd 
which despite the happenings at Washington filled every available 
seat of the hastily erected bleachers. As far as Navy was concerned it 











was just another game or so it seemed to the team who amassed their 
consistent quota of 51 points to 14 for the Kaydets. The game, how- 
ever, was the most exciting one seen during the season and was 
a fight from start to finish. Loughlin, Kastein, and Captain Bedell, 
playing their last game under the Academy banner, covered them- 
selves with glory and aided in no small way to revenge last Fall's 
defeat on the gridiron. Loughlin in particular ran wild amassing 
single handed 15 points. The sterling play of Borries and Dornin, 
both Youngsters, had much to do with the victory and we look to 
them to form the basis for a next year's team that will even eclipse 
the mark set by this season's quintet. 

After reviewing the season, the number of games played, and the 
calibre of the teams met, the conclusion arrived at is that it was by 
far the best season ever enjoyed by a Navy team. It is too much to 
hope that some day a basketball team will meet all comers of a high 
grade and at each time be able to turn in a win. In a series of two or 
three games more satisfactory results with the tougher teams could 
always be reached for both parties concerned. It is a hope therefore 
that coming schedules will call for return games during a season 
with such opponents as Penn and Pitt.

THE tough and dry features of Coach "Kid" Mohler broadened out into a huge grin as he surveyed 
the crowd of athletes that responded to the first call for baseball late in February. There was 
enthusiasm, much nudging in the ribs and resounding slapping of backs. The season was on — 
nothing could stop it, and everybody knew it. The days wore away deep into March. Each afternoon 
the chill walls of the Armory brightened to the crack of base hits and to the merry whiz of pitches with 
steam and stuff. The weather continued, too unsettled for outdoor sessions. Captain Hodgkins, however, 
kept driving the team on and whipped it into shape days before the opening game. 

The inaugural came with the thirtieth of March. It was not without ceremony. The ghosts of 
former years walked cheerfully again when Captain H. D. Cooke, Commandant of Midshipmen, plunked 
the first ball with a noisy smack into the eager, though well-gloved, hands of Captain W. Wilcox, 
Director of Athletics. Though the day was bleak and the skies overcast, the rouncl of applause that 
burst out was all sincerity. Then the crowd settled back happily, shivered a little, and the game was on. 

At the end of the fourth inning, the score stood against us, 8-7, with Vermont leading by one run. 
There was much loose fielding and much lusty hitting as well. The runs should continue piling in thick 
and fast, the stands resound, and there would be plenty of shouting and noise. 

Masterton, Captain 

Doyle, Coach 





Then something happened. The teams tightened, and the game grew tense, as Vermont managed 
to eke out a run in the sixth, with Navy counter-tallying in her half of the seventh. Came the ninth 
inning, and the slim margin of one run held grimly by the Green Mountain team loomed large. 

Navy batted and hit. A runner moved down to first, then to second, then to third. Another halted 
at first. Just one fast roller down either base line and the skies wouldn't seem so dark nor the day so chill. 
The rooters stood up, tense, and expectant. And groaned, when the last man popped high in the air to 
end the game. Navy couldn't quite make her eight runs top the nine markers registered by Vermont. 

Then came a long interim of three weeks, with no end of rain, and no end of practice, as the team 
drove on to iron out the kinks in its defense and offense. Captain Hodgins, Davenport, and Masterton 
were doing yeoman work. All the dark powers of Hades couldn't prevent the regulars and the scrubs 
from grinning and singing in the rain — despite the two cancelled games with Lafayette and the Orioles 
of Baltimore. 

Navy's pent-up energy smote the Terrors of Western Maryland hard to the tune of eleven runs 
against six, on the sixteenth of April. There was but one miscue afield. The game was never in doubt. 
The two big innings, the first and the fifth, in which nine runs were driven home, proved the undoing 
of the visitors. 

McEachern, with his double, two singles, and a sacrifice, was more a Terror than the entire team 
from Western Maryland combined. So was Davenport, who replaced Coombs in the fifth, and calmly 
spikes a furious, belated rally of three runs in the ninth. Masterton played beautiful ball in the outer 
gardens at left, and Hodgkins ran all over the field to make magnificent catches of the balls that 
caromed off the war clubs of the visitors into the infield. 

English, Ojf. Rep. 

White, Mgr. 














A powerful team from Washington and Lee stopped here on the 
twenty-third of April just long enough to turn in a verdict of 13-6 
against the "Kid" and his team. Navy's pitchers were unable to hold 
the slugging invaders in check. Coombs left in the first. Davenport 
coasted along well enough until the sixth, when three home runs, 
two of them on successive pitches, ruined the day for him. Campbell 
finished, and the Generals touched him for three additional runs to 
put the game head and shoulders beyond Navy's reach. The work of 
"Steve " Daunis was the only bright spot in the day's work. Of the 
five hits punched out by the Navy offensive, he accounted for two, 
both good for an extra base. 

Five days later another calamity overtook the team. The Univer- 
sity of West Virginia chalked up 16 runs against a meager three and 
left town well satisfied with the havoc wrought. The game was all 
Walker, the invading pitcher. His work was superb and even over- 
shadowed the fine hitting of Baker, his center fielder, who turned in a 
home run, two triples, and two singles as his quota for the day. 

It seemed that hard luck was destined to dog the footsteps of 
Navy's baseball team for a long time. William and Mary, on the last 
day of April, tucked away nine Navy scalps in true Indian fashion 
and stalked off to the big wigwam at Williamsburg, grunting glee- 
fully of the 7 runs that whipped the Navy's 3 . Lefty Coombs engaged 
Steve Stankis in an interesting pitcher's duel. The latter' s feat of hold- 
ing the Mohlermen hitless in the first five frames, however, proved a 
little too difficult to duplicate. Lefty missed the steadiness of Captain 
Hodgkins afield, out with a spiked hand. At crucial moments, such 
as that one in the second inning when two costly errors gave the 
visitors three runs, his absence was more than sadly in evidence. 






The tide turned the first Saturday of May. In a driving finish 
that netted the Mohlermen their total of 6 runs in the last three 
stands at bat, with all the cunning and skill seen on big-time dia- 
monds, Navy nosed out Georgetown by one tally. Until the seventh, 
Carpenter, pitching for the Hoyas, kept throwing a disheartening 
array of curves and speed and rang up a long string of six, big, round 
ciphers to his credit. The game seemed lost when Georgetown 
punched out viciously four runs in the fourth and began a grim stand 
to hold the lead. 

Then came the seventh, and the expectant stands rose in antici- 
pation of a riot. It came, Kane walked, Cronin singled, and Bunce's 
hit to deep right sent both runners scampering home. A wild pitch 
advanced the right fielder to third. He scored standing up when 
Davenport bunted neatly along the first base line. The Navy stands 
groaned when the side was retired in order in the eighth. With the 
last frame, however, came the three runs that provided the margin 
for victory. Cronin landed on first on McNamara's error and scored 
when Bunce tripled lustily to right. Carpenter was finding the going 
hard and fell all over himself in an effort to field the second of Daven- 
port's beautiful bunts. The safety shoved Bunce across and knotted 
the count at five all. "Pablo" Masterton sent Davenport ambling off 
to third with a single. The luckless McNamara again did badly on 
McEachern's bunt to lose a well-pitched game by a score of 6 to 5. 



i ., . 




















The following Friday, the Navy contingent sallied forth to New 
York, and lost to the Lions of Columbia, 7 runs to 2.. The brilliant 
pitching of Wilkens, the home hurler, was the difference between 
victory and defeat for the Navy. "Lefty" Coombs once again went 
the route and found himself pitted against a finished performer, 
who refused to yield more than five hits, struck out five, and kept 
Navy in complete subjection the entire afternoon. 

Fate was just as cruel the following Saturday, the fourteenth of 
May. Flashing a magnificent offensive coupled with the beautiful 
pitching of Brewer, the Cavaliers of the University of Virginia gal- 
loped rough-shod over Navy's ball tossers. Except for the fine hurling 
of^the invading pitcher, who held Navy hitless for seven long frames, 
the game was as dry as dust and bore out all the more forcibly the 
contention that the club from the University of Virginia is one of the 
finest in collegiate circles. 

With only a few days of May remaining and June Week smiling 
in the offing, the season was fast coming to an end. Navy wound up 
her record in slashing style and registered three superb victories 
against Temple, Mount St. Mary's, and Maryland, as the curtain 
dropped swiftly over the diamond. 

On the twenty-first of May, Temple failed to push across the two 
runs that it needed to win in the last inning, and lost, 4 runs to 3. 
Davenport threw a pretty assortment of curves at the Owls and held 
them at bay until the ninth. Then a run with one out brought the 
Templemen within striking distance. Two men got on and took long 
leads to score on anything resembling a hit. The batsmen were in- 
structed to bunt. Davenport, however, parried the strategy by delib- 
erate fielding to retire the side and pocket the game. 


1 1 













Three days later, Mt. St. Mary's met a similar fate and lost by 
one run, 5 to 4. It was Davenport again doing yeoman work on the 
mound. The speed artistry of Gray, his opponent on the hill, was just 
insufficient to stave off defeat. 

In the last game, Navy, weary of the nerve-wracking episodes of 
the week before, unloaded an avalanche of base hits and completely 
buried the unhappy Terrapins of Maryland. The score was 11-4, and 
indicates the decisive fashion in which the Mohlermen drove to the 
finish of their long grind. 

It was a vastly improved nine that trotted off the field that day. 
It had won six games, and lost an equal number. The story of the last 
three tells the tale. The team clicked beautifully and could have con- 
tinued doing so for a long time. Its finesse afield and the power at the 
plate will spell swift disaster to next year's invading nines. 

It might be well to add that next year's nine will be under the 
auspices of Lt. Doyle, who has had the care of the Plebes for the last 
two years and whose ability is well-known to all the members of the 
Regiment as a professor in the Department of Engineering and Aero- 
nautics and as aviator de luxe in the summer course in flight training 
given the second class. It was not so many years ago that Lt. Doyle 
was romping around the infield for the Blue and Gold himself and 
it is with the very best wishes for a successful season that the Regi- 
ment greets the new coach, the first time that an officer has been made 
head coach of a major sport at the Naval Academy in many years.

THE importance of the nineteen thirty-two season for Lacrosse had grown upon us as the months 
of the fall and winter of 1931-31 rolled by and flashes from the far west in Los Angles convinced 
us that rapid progress was being made in preparation for the Xth Olympiad. Well-known to all 
hands was the fact that against Canada and Australia the best college teams in the United States was to 
be pitted. Equally well-known was the fact that the best lacrosse teams in the United States were to be 
found right in the State of Maryland. Johns Hopkins, St. Johns, Maryland, Mt. Washington and Navy 
were to be the chief contestants. Thus it was that the season held the greatest significance to men of the 
team and the Regiment as a whole. 

The first game was with Mt. Washington. The visitors were the first to draw blood when Paul 
Norris scored some six minutes after the opening whistle. It was almost ten minutes later before Navy 

Ferguson, Capt. 

Finlayson, Coach 



was able to pierce the formidable defense. Sammy Moncure, dodged and twisted into shooting distance 
and his aim was accurate. Shortly thereafter, Johnny Condon, playing his first varsity game, fired a 
fast one past the opponents' goalie. Then came the game's most peculiar play. Stinson, looking for an 
opening, saw Doug Turnbull open on the crease and lobbed a short pass to him. 

The Mt. Washington attack missed it and at the same instant Porter, Navy's goalkeeper rushed 
out to check Turnbull. The ball floated over both players' heads, unnoticed, and lodged in the net. 
Just before the half ended Nisewaner took a pass close to the goal and scored; Navy led 3-i. With the 
last session half over the visitors scored again. After this thrust the tallying subsided for a while and 
it seemed now that Mt. Washington applied every ounce of their remaining strength. Their final rally 
was rewarded when Gerstmeyer scoopeci a muffed ball from a Navy defense and, whirling in his tracks, 
let drive at the net. It was a beautiful shot that splashed in the mud in front of Porter's feet and skidded 
into one corner. Soon after this the game ended and Navy had lost 5-4. 

Western Maryland was next. After the start of hostilities a four minute lull ensued during which 
no tallying occurred. Both teams took advantage of this interval to test out the caliber of their oppon- 
ents. Tommy Morton was the first to score when he planted the ball in the net after its having been 
worked up the length of the field by a clever passing attack. Two minutes later Sammy Moncure added 
another and Navy obtained a lead which she did not relinquish at any succeeding stage of the game. 
The Methodists rallied somewhat after this last sally and held the Navy attack in check for about six 
minutes when Glover Ferguson finally got through to score. Western Maryland obtained their first 
tally in the middle of the first half. McNally, their first attack, slipped into position and a moment 
later drove one past Porter, who was tending the Navy goal. 

The lads from Westminster continued their defensive battle as the half drew to a close but in the last 
three minutes were unable to check a Navy attack which suddenly began to function more smoothly.

In this short time Nisewaner, Ferguson, and Happel got free and 
rang the bell in quick succession. As play was resumed after the mid- 
time rest period the Terrors drew first blood, Seitz scoring five 
minutes after the faceofF. Navy continued to take things easily and 
not only held the visitors scoreless for the rest of the game but also 
snapped four more counters past the opposing goal tender. The score 
at the end of the game stood Navy lo. Western Maryland i. 

The Lehigh game was won just thirteen seconds after the open- 
ing whistle. Hardly had the ball been cleared out of the opening 
faceofF when "Foo" Moncure grabbed it up and sped down the field. 
A few moments later he let fly at the goal and a tally was rung up 
almost before the Bethlehemites realized that the game had started. 
From then on the scoring was rampant. Even the second string con- 
tinued the good work when they entered late in the opening half. 
When the mid-time period came Navy was ahead 15-0. Moncure was 
high scorer, amassing a total of seven. Larry Smith, who replaced 
him, and Glover Ferguson, and Nisewaner collected three apiece. 
Ferguson, besides his scoring attack, filled the capacity of chief 
feeder for the other attack men. Time and again his accurate passes 
resulted in goals. Score: Navy, 13; Lehigh, o. 

The Engineers from M. L T. were our next opponents. A good 
day and a fast field were in evidence when the Ham and Eggers

Institute of Technology. From the first it was evident that the big 
guns of the Navy attack were too formidable for the Bostonians to 
cope with and the game evolved into a contest in which the visotor's 
chief interest lay in keeping down the score. Their success in this 
direction was not startlingly apparent as may be seen from the 
scoring, 13 tallies being registered the first session and 11 dur- 
ing the second. The laurels for high scorer were divided four 
men competing for the honors. Moncure, Bowers, Elliott, and 
Ferguson each copped three goals. Morton MacDonald, Condon, 
and Smith also rang the bell upon two occasions each, while 
Miller, Dial, Slater and Buse accounted for four more. The first 
defense showed great strength. During the first half while Porter was 
tending goal he was not called upon to handle the ball more than 
once or twice. The second string replaced them after the rest period 
and, if anything, did even better than their big brothers. Bird, 
relief goalkeeper, wasn't allowed to get at the ball even once. 

Navy struck somewhat stifFer opposition than was expected 
when the team journeyed to Philly to engage the University of 
Pennsylvania. The game was hotly contested in all departments and 
it was little more than a greater accuracy in shooting that gave the 
Blue and Gold a well earned 9-1 victory. 

The game started with the Quakers obtaining possession of the 
















ball at the opening faceofF. They carried it down deep into Navy 
territory and for a considerable time the efforts of our defense to 
retrieve it were unavailing. The Pennsylvanians were not able, 
however, to carry out their scoring threat and their several attempts 
were unsuccessful. From this stage on the game became a see-saw 
affair with first one side and then the other carrying the brunt of the 
attack. Navy was the more successful at planting her shots and as a 
result jumped into the lead which she held throughout the game. 
Miller was the first to draw blood, scoring about three minutes after 
the opening whistle. Happel, playing center, rang the bell again 
four minutes later and at the end of the first half Moncure and then 
Happel tallied to bring the total to four. In the second frame Sammy 
Moncure ran wild and found the net three times in quick succession. 
Bowers, and Elliott, who substituted for Moncure toward the end, 
ran it up to nine in all. Penn chalked up both tallies during the 
second session, the scores being made with short shovel shots from 
scrimmage in front of the goal. 

Coach Bobby Poole's Harvard stickmen tried their very best 
but were unable to grasp a victory from George Finlayson's proteges. 
From the very start it was evident that the Crimson were putting 
every ounce of available energy into the contest. They fought like 
demons to pass the defense and again and again, hurled a formidable 
attack into action only to have it repulsed unavailingly. 








Yet, they were able to score on two occasions and during the 
first half it looked like anybody's game. The contest was replete 
with thrills and was one of the most hard-fought of recent encount- 
ers. Both teams played a knock-down, drag-out game and spills 
occurred almost every time two opposing men neared the ball. The 
final score was Navy 6, Harvard t. 

After displaying such formidable power over our opponents we 
entered June Week and the last game against our traditional foe, 
Maryland, who this year again presented a strong team that like 
ourselves was fighting for the honor of representing the U. S. in the 
Olympics. The entire game was a hard fight with neither team con- 
ceding the other a thing. Navy felt the loss of Tommy Bowers who 
sustained injuries in the game with Harvard. Like most things in 
life that are too good to be true our winning streak came to an end. 
The final score of Maryland 4, Navy x is indicative of the even match 
played. Captain James, Pressey, Porter, Tyler, and Ferguson played 
a great game and when it was a matter of history the whole gang 
felt a quiet confidence in their ability to handle the situation in the 
Olympic selection playoffs which never came to Navy by reason of 
an order sending all new Ensigns to sea. 

Before disbanding for the year the braves chose as their new 
chief Glover Ferguson and he and Coach Finlayson are looking for- 
ward to having a mighty good outfit for the thirty-three season.

THE rhythmic clank of the machines, the erratic splashing in the tanks, and a cold, and windy 
February are ushering in the history of Navy Crew as the 1933 season gets under way. Though 
Poughkeepsie has been temporarily discontinued the heavyweights will meet every major crew 
in the East, except Yale, while the lightweights race every crew of its class in the country. A small 
Plebe class gave Coach Hardin three boats of fine-looking men. Dick Gray, brother of the famous 
Al Gray, is captain. What looks to be the finest lightweight squad in Navy history reported the first 
of February under the leadership of Captain Larry Kauffman and Coach Pieczentkowski. The former 
stroked the '31 boat which missed the national championship by inches and the latter was captain of 
the 1930 Varsity. In the squad of over fifty there are a large number of capable veterans including 
Drescher, Klopp, Strean, and Snider. A week later Skipper "Wally" Wendt, a veteran of three Pough- 
keepsies, reported to Buck Walsh with a squad of thirty including a number of men with three years 
rowing behind them, such as Klinsmann, White, Weeks, Anderson, Fulton, and Dillon. The competi- 
tion for Varsity seats in all squads promises to be unusually keen this year. 

The season of 1931 marked the end of the old regime and the advent of the new. Dick Glendon had 
resigned after another Hudson regatta had given him the astounding record of one Olympic and five 
National championships in twelve years. Charles (Buck) Walsh, his successor, is young in years but

old in the glorious traditions of Navy Crews. While a Midshipman he placed his name with the great- 
est of Navy oars. Called back to the Academy in 192.4 to row on the Officer's Olympic crew of 192.4, he 
was asked to become assistant coach in '15 . He immediately sent the Navy Plebes to the top of the river 
and kept them there for seven years. He has done a great deal of experimentation and scientific analysis 
on the subject of crew and is now the foremost expert on this all-important element in the making of 
winners. However, when we think of Buck, we forget the good oarsman, the coach with a wonderful 
reputation, and the scientist. Somehow, those of us who have known him think of him first as our best 
friend, the man we go to when we are in trouble or need advice. Last year when he was called upon to 
fill Glendon's shoes, he immediately started a system of having a Varsity squad as well as a Varsity 
crew and it became an honor, rather than a drudge, to be on the Junior Varsity. 

"Buck's" first year as senior coach was not an easy one. The squad boasted only three letter men 
from the preceding year in Captain "Bo" Shelton, Jewett, and Anderson. One of the hardest schedules 
in years faced the comparatively green crew. Eight major crews were met and five of these, Princeton, 
Columbia, M.I.T., Penn and Syracuse finished in our wake at least once. The lightweights lost to 
Columbia and Penn and beat M.I.T. in early races, and were barely nosed out by the winning Columbia 
boat in a field of six at the Henley. The Plebe season was marked by victories over five out of six 
opponents, while the Jayvees finished a close third at Poughkeepsie after beating Columbia's Varsity 
and the second boats of Penn, Harvard, and Tech in early season matches.

The opening test of the Varsity season found us racing Princeton 
over the one and three-quarter mile course on Lake Carnegie. A high 
wind across the course gave Princeton on the Lee shore an early ad- 
vantage. Jewett, soon settled down into his famous power stroke and 
slowly drew up even. Bow and bow the two boats raced down the 
middle distance and neither could shake the other. At the half mile 
mark, however, the Blue and Gold oars increased their beat and 
slowly drew away. Princeton raised their stroke also but they could 
not match the Navy power and they still had a length to go when 
the Navy bow crossed the line. 

Two weeks later we faced a much bigger test. In seven consecu- 
tive dual races, a Columbia Varsity had left a Navy boat behind and 
we wanted revenge. This much-heralded crew arrived on the Severn 
after announcing that they could take Navy in their stride and they 
allowed our Jayvees to enter the Varsity race. After the Plebes had 
won by six lengths and our lightweights had lost by inches in a 
terrific battle the three boats lined up for the final race. The first 
mile saw a tremendous struggle between the Columbia Varsity and 
our J.V's for second place with the Navy first boat a length in the 
lead. At the half mile mark, however, Shelton, who was stroking 
the second boat, left Columbia behind and went out after the Var- 
sity and Garry Jewett. Closer and closer he came in a terrific drive 
until he was less than a quarter length behind when the flag dropped 
at the finish. Columbia finished a good two lengths behind both 
Navy boats. 











The following week a not unexpected reaction set in and Syra- 
cuse won three close and thrilling races. The margin in the Varsity 
event was barely a length, the Plebes finished less than a second 
behind and the Jayvees lost by a deck length. 

On the fourteenth of May we were hosts at a regatta of fourteen 
crews with Penn, Harvard, and M.I.T. as our guests. It was a beauti- 
ful day for a boat race and the finish was lined by subchasers on one 
side, and on the other the hillside was covered with a colorful throng. 
The Secretary of Navy and Mrs. Adams were present as guests of 
Admiral and Mrs. Hart. Mr. Adams has since sponsored a trophy 
given to the winner of this annual event. All races except the light- 
weight Henley were over the iM nii^e course. The first race saw the 
Penn and Navy light weight Varsities battling for the lead all down 
the course with M.I.T. slowly dropping behind. At the half mile 
mark Joe Bush, Navy's hundred and thirty pound captain and stroke, 
forced his stroke to a forty and gained a temporary lead, but even his 
indomitable spirit could not stop the power in the Penn crew and 
the latter won by a fraction of a second. In the next race the Penn 
Frosh took nearly two lengths at the start and the rest of the race 
was a hot pursuit by a game bunch of Plebes. For a time it looked as 
though they might pull up but that start proved too great a handi- 
cap and Penn won by two seconds with Tech trailing the Plebes. In 
the Junior Varsity race. Navy took an early lead, increased it with 
every stroke and crossed the line ten seconds ahead of Tech. The 
course record was broken by a second and a half. The Varsity race 


... ^ 


that day will probably go down in the Severn's history as one of its 
most exciting, thrilling, and heartbreaking. When the four boats 
lined up there was a good wind blowing down the course and whip- 
ping up quite a wash. The start was even but Harvard soon started 
to move out ahead and Tech began to drop behind, coming up on 
the mile mark the Crimson shell had about half a length on both 
Navy and Penn. The plucky Engineers had ceased to figure in the 
race. As this mark was left behind, Penn began to sprint and soon 
were in first place and now Navy was fighting with Harvard for 
second place. Within another four hundred yards, however, Penn 
had dropped back and the three bows were within ten feet of each 
other for the next quarter mile, during which the spectators who 
were following the race saw the greatest exhibition of pure man 
power seen here for some time. When the red house was reached, 
Navy was still slightly behind but here it was that old Navy fight 
started to tell. "Brute" called for a sprint, "Garry" set himself 
and forced the stroke up by the application of pure ' 'guts, ' ' McMahon 
took it and passed it on back, the boat seemed to quiver at the effort 
and then started after the leaders. Inch by inch they gained as the 
other boats tried in vain to match their power. Slowly but surely, 
they commenced to pull away and with forty strokes to go had a 
clean lead of a quarter length. Here with victory in sight, the tragedy 
fell. Everyone knows the rest of the story, how the Crab put Navy 
out of the running and how Harvard nosed out Penn to win. A 
grand race but a tough one to lose. 

The rest of the season was spent in the quest of National Cham- 


Eionships on the Schuylkill and the Hudson. The first bid was made 
y a thoroughly revamped lightweight Varsity at the Henley but 
their former conquerors from Columbia again nosed them out in 
another thrilling race which was a replica of the first one. 

At last, with June Week over, the heavyweight squads moved 
to Camp Ingram on the Hudson where the final drive was begun. 
After two weeks of intense practice, the climax came. June ioth 
dawned a beautiful day and, for a change, the Hudson was behaving 
itself. Our Plebes were our first representatives in the regatta and 
noble ones they were, too. In fourth place at the mile mark, they 
went after the leaders and, passing California and Cornell almost 
took first place from a fine boatload of Syracuse Freshmen. The next 
race saw another Syracuse victory with our own Jay vees a close third . 
At last, the greatest race of the year was about to start. Seventy-two 
men tensely awaiting the starting gun, then bare, bronzed backs, stiff 
and straight, the muscles on arms and legs braced for the opening 
drive, seventy-two representatives of the fi^nest type of youth in the 
world pitting strength against strength in this most purely, most 
magnificently masculine of all sports. Navy, defending her crown, 
was given only an outside chance to finish in the money. However, 
when the spray had all died down it was discovered that Navy, the 
outsider, had been beaten by only one crew on the whole East coast. 
Syracuse, our earlier conquerors, had finished two lengths behind us; 
and Penn, who had also beaten us in a former race, was some six 
lengths in our wake as were Columbia and M.I.T. It was a fitting 
climax to a grand season. Let 'er run.

THE Blue and Gold track squad faced the opening of the 1931 season with a well balanced team 
which was particularly strong in certain events. A good beginning made on the boards during the 
winter months was certain to have its benefits in the spring. Although the call was not sounded 
until March fifteenth the team was in excellent shape for its first meet one month later on the sixteenth 
of April. Captain Underwood led his team as a shot putter, discus man, and broad jumper. His per- 
formances throughout were consistent and sometimes scintillating. Notwithstanding the loss of 
Mackenzie through graduation, the sprints were well taken care of by Waybright. The return of 
Coleman to the quarter gave the team the assurance of a sterling runner and point-getter. His comeback 
and record of 49.8 demonstrates the type of performance he rendered. Musgrave and Connolly of last 
year's squad were on hand to turn in more points in this event. Only the ineligibility of Evans prevented 
the quarter from being the strongest race for the Navy. 

The half-mile field was led by Hardman, who had the capable assistance of Compton. Likewise in 

Newton, Captain 

Thomson, Coach 



the mile, Hardman headed the list and was seconded here by Burton and Hailey.The two-mile was cared 
for by Gibson, the cross country captain, but Blouin, Bowen, and Griffith helped to swell the total 
points of several meets. 

In the hurdles Whitaker was outstanding, though he had to contend throughout with the com- 
petition afforded by Pilcher, Cox, Newton, and Kastein. 

In the field events, other than those led by Underwood, we found the pole vault handled nicely by 
Bundy, Cameron, and Randolph. The broad jump produced a new leader in McRae, who had the help 
of Underwood and Frazer. Connaway again led the high jumpers, though Bingham proved himself 
to be a coming man when he cleared better than six feet in the Olympic trials at Baltimore. In the javelin 
toss Kirn and Scherini were the best, and their performances were always creditable. 

The credit for the presentation of this strong aggregation goes to' Coach Earl Thomson who has 
strived untiringly to develop men and produce high-caliber track teams. The season itself left one thing 
to be desired — we lost to Ohio State by a margin of two-thirds of a point. Assisting Thomson in 
handling the distance men we had the services of Mr. Novak whose efforts were reflected in the success 
we achieved in the distance events. 

The season opened on April sixteenth against North Carolina to whom we lost by a score of 65 to 
61. It was somewhat of a surprise victory for the Tarheels but not totally unexpected as the Navy team 
did not present itself in full strength. Waybright turned in two victories, the hundred in 9.6 and the 
furlong at ii.8. The quarter went to North Carolina by the performance of Marland. Coleman took 
second place. Hardman copped the mile in 4-31.5 with two of the Tarheels close behind. Gibson didn't 
have enough left to answer Hubbard's challenge in the two-mile but managed to get three points for

Navy. Whitaker crashed through in the high hurdles for a first 
place, while in the lows he had to be content with a second to 
Slusser of North Carolina, Newton taking third. In the field events 
Underwood's blue ribbon in the shot was the only undisputed first 
place taken by Navy, though Connaway and Stafford of N. C. tied 
for first at 5-iii/2- Navy did get a second and third in the broad 
jump, and thirds in the discus and the javelin. 

The University of Virginia was the next opponent met by the 
Blue and Gold. They were obliged to accept defeat to the tune of 
73-53, due largely to a decidedly improved team placed on the field 
by Coach Thomson. Again Waybright was good for two first places, 
while Vaughan closed in nicely to cop a second in the century. The 
quarter-mile was all Navy with Coleman and Nicol taking first and 
second respectively. A 4.19 mile enabled Hardman to decisively beat 
Lauck of Virginia, and Burton was good enough for a third. Gibson, 
Griffith, and Blouin accounted for the two-mile places in the order 
named. Bryan of the Cavaliers was too speedy for our hurdlers who 
had to accept a second and a third. 

Bandy and Wylie of Virginia tied at ix' 6" in the vault; Conna- 
way, Bingham and Johnson of the visitors did likewise at 6' in the 
high jump. Underwood and Johnson of Navy got second and third in 
the shot; Scherini had a first in the javelin; and Fraser got a first in 
the broad jump, second place going to McRae. 

The Penn Relays came on April 2.9th and 30th; the annual 
classic, to which thousands of athletes turn "as the Mecca of track 















and fieldom, has been the recipient of Navy entries for many years; 
this season was no exception. It was decided to enter two relay teams 
and several individuals, the selections being made after trials were 
conducted in the two weeks preceding the trip. Those to make the trip 
as individuals were Waybright, Whitaker, Bandy, Johnson, Under- 
wood, and Pilcher, while the two relay teams, one the mile, the other 
the sprint medley, were made up of Connolly, Newton, Hardman, 
and Nicol; and Coleman, Newton, Waybright, and Hardman re- 
spectively. Among the individuals success was enjoyed by Waybright 
alone, who closed fast in the hundred yard dash to annex third place 
in the finals. The relay teams, however, were slightly more successful. 
After leading for one and a half laps in the finals of the sprint medley. 
Navy was obliged to accept second place only when Hardman was 
barely eclipsed by a courageous last minute sprint on the part of his 
Penn State opponent. The mile relay quartetdidnotfarequitesowell. 
Connolly, running the first lap, was crowded far back and the suc- 
ceeding runners had all they could do to climb up to fourth place. 
There were upward of seventeen teams in the race, among them Army 
who had to be content with eighth place. Whitaker and Pilcher 
trailed the paces of Jack Keller of Ohio State who led the way in the 
invitational high hurdles over one hundred and twenty yards. 

The next Navy triumph was accomplished over William and 
Mary to the tune of 69-57. The meet was at Williamsburg on a warm 
May day especially designed to bring out the best performances of 
the year for the Navy men. Three Academy records fell by the way- 




1 . 






side. Waybright, by negotiating the furlong in zi.}, made his mark 
for the season and incidentally pointed his toes toward the Olympic 
games. Not to be outdone, Hardman turned in a 1-55.8 half-mile to 
add another record to his list and likewise serve notice on the other 
Olympic aspirants. Just to render an all-around fine season's per- 
formance, Connaway cleared the bar at 6' 2.%". Newton Gibson, 
Coleman, Whitaker, Underwood, Bandy, and Frazer were the other 
Navy first place winners. 

History repeats, and so it was with the Maryland meet on the 
fourteenth of May. Once again Navy gave Maryland a thorough 
drubbing 89% to 36}/^ Several new Navy winners showed their faces 
as Coach Thomson shifted his men to different events. Bingham, 
Johnson, Bowen, Vaughn and McRae registered their first wins 
for the Blue and Gold. 

We closed the season with the hardest contest of all — the Ohio 
State meet. The score, 6i% to 633/^, indicates how closely contested 
the meet was and how each event in itself could make or break the 
outcome. Bennett, the State flyer, led Waybright to the tape in both 
sprints. Teitelbaum beat both Coleman and Waybright in the quarter 
in the slow time of 50. 3. Hardman and Compton took one and two 
for Navy in the half-mile while Hardman adcled a second scalp to his 
collection by taking the mile from Dille of Ohio. The two mile pace 
of Fallen proved too much for Hailey and Blouin and sadly enough 
Gibson, the regular winner of this event for Navy, was on the injured 
list. Kellar, later of Olympic fame, showed the way in both hurdle 






if w 

races, though Whitaker got a second and a third in the lows and highs 
respectively. Connaway took second in the high jump; Underwood 
two firsts, one in the shotput and the other in the discus. McRae 
repeated his previous week's performance to win the broad jump, the 
distance of 13 ','^" constituting one of the best leaps seen around 
these parts in many seasons. Smith of Ohio proved a little too strong 
for Kirn with the javelin and forced our "Bullet Lou" to take a sec- 
ond in this event. Shinn in the discus and Johnson in the shot put 
were able to beat out the Ohio men in these events, giving Navy a 
first and second. All in all, the Ohio State meet was an excellent 
exhibition of track and field work and although Navy came out on 
the short end of the score by a bare two-thirds of a point, there is 
every reason to feel proud of the performances rendered by the 
wearers of the Blue and Gold. 

Even though a loss is not the traditional June Week finish to a 
Navy season there was a feeling of "Well Done" in the hearts of 
every man, coupled with a firm resolve on the part of the under- 
graduates to improve with the coming years. And it is no false 
optimism with which we scan the track future; a comfortable allot- 
ment of strength prevails in most events and the numerous candidates 
for all events renders certain the fact that outstanding performers 
will appear under the eagle eye and expert handling of Coach Thom- 
son to whom all credit is due for the rapid rise of Naval Academy 
prestige in the world of track and field.

NTERCOLLEGIATE champions — the first Navy soccer team to come through a season undefeated — 
a new gold cup in the Trophy Room. 
The season was a distinct surprise, and a tribute to the soccer mentor, Tommy Taylor. When half 
of last year's team was graduated, prospects looked dim for the present year. From the wreckage arose 
the best soccer team Navy has ever had. 

Western Maryland, Lafayette, Bucknell, and Gettysburg all succumbed to large scores. Haverford, 
the Notre Dame of Soccer, fell in the first game x-i. Syracuse received the short end of a i-o score. The 
heart breaking Lehigh game ended in a 3-3 tie after Navy led 3-0 up to the last quarter. Notable 
throughout the season was the way the team rose to meet each challenge. The better the opposition, 
the better our men played that day. Counting up the goals, we find, in seven games, 14 for Navy and 6 
for the opponents. 

That shows the power of the team and the cooperation which lay behind it. It can only hint at 
the real reason for success — the spirit of the team.

Among the First Classmen, Captain Jack Dillon stood out. Playing goal, he had his gang under 
control at all times, and deserves much of the credit for the season. Willy Seipt played his third year 
at fullback, and was usually the Verdun of the Navy defense. Sowerine was the only veteran at half- 
back, and the hardest player of all. Masterton continued as the corner-kicking expert and a consis- 
tently hard driver. Price, at inside left, was always a tough man to get around. Soccer season won't 
be the same without "The Grand Old Man," "Pash," and "Gator." 

There is a wealth of power remaining. "Schnozzle," "Goost," and "Romeo" will carry on. 
Among the fullbacks are Dry, Upham, Marshall, and Cooper, all of whom saw action in that hard 
luck position this year. Stirling and Ellenberger will again hold down two halfback positions, and 
repeat this year's fine record. Wigfall, Moore, and Geist have another year to continue their stellar 
trio on the line. Dougherty, Sweeney, Schwartz, and Froling are waiting to jump into the vacancies. 
Geist is next year's captain, and the best player Navy has had in years. The saying is: "As Geist goes, 
so goes the team." Next year should see another undefeated season — and, we hope, a chance to take on 
the Army. 





A LTHOUGH Spike Webb presented to the Regiment one of the strongest teams in the history 
/-\ of Naval Academy boxing, it was the second season in all his career as a Navy coach that his 
/ \ team was defeated. Unfortunately this occurred twice — the strong aggregation representing 
the University of \^irginia invaded Annapolis and turned the trick, 5-3. In the final engagement against 
Syracuse the worst defeat ever administered a Navy team occurred, the score being 6-i. Such are the 
odds of the game and in such a manner did Spike, the team, and the Regiment accept the outcome. The 
loss of Nauman in the 145 lb. class was a deciding factor in each of the meets following his incapacita- 
tion. Returning to the squad from last season's team were the veterans, Dolan, Wright, Miller, Mc- 
Naughton and Lee. Several promising prospects from the plebe team of the previous year were on hand. 
Fulmer was not numbered among the returning first string men, and Davis, Arthur and Kenna had 
been lost by graduation. As the squad finally shaped up to take on the best teams of the South and 
East, we saw Captain Wright at 115 lbs; Dolan and Southerland, 12.5 lbs; Miller at 135 lbs; Nauman and 
Hopkins, 145, McNaughton, 155; Herold, 165; Lambert, 175; and Slade Cutter, the heavyweight.

The opening meet was with New Hampshire in which Navy took seven out of eight bouts, the 
175 pound bout between McGrath and Lambert being called a draw. Captain Wright took his fight 
handily, and in rapid succession followed decisions for Dolan and Miller. The fireworks were set off 
by Nauman who floored his man twice before the referee called the match and named Nauman the 
winner. In the 155 lb. bout McNaughton pounded relentlessly a stubborn opponent who refused to lose 
via the K. O. route. Herold turned in a decision over his man. In the final bout big, booming Slade 
Cutter unlashed a terrific attack and won his first varsity bout by a knockout in the first round. 

The second meet was likewise at home and against Navy's traditional rival, Western Maryland. 
The score of 5 J'2 to 3 H does not speak about three stirring knockouts registered by Wright, Nauman, 
and Cutter. Dolan met a shower of punches in each of his rushes upon his opponent and though he was 
able to deliver several telling blows in each round was forced to accept an adverse decision. Miller 
outpointed his adversary from the opening bell and gained a well-earned decision. McNaughton had a 
wide margin; while Herold encountered a worthy Terror who would give the Navy lad no better than 
a draw. Kaplan was a bit too crafty for Lambert and was awarded the nod. 

Louisiana State from Baton Rouge came to Annapolis next but returned unconsoled with a 6J^ 
to Yi lopsided score against them. Miller met the best 135-pound lad seen in the Navy ring in Glaze.

These two boys fought three good rounds divided the honors between them. The rest of the Blue and 
Gold performers kept their slates clean. 

On the evening of February i8th the sons of Virginia, champions of the South, invaded Crabtown 
with a strong team of classy fighters, and for the first time in 14 years defeated a Navy team. Wright 
gained a decision; Cutter, a knockout; Hopkins and Lambert, draws; the rest of the Navy men were 
unable to cope with the Cavaliers, tho' McNaughton's lacerated nose was the cause of his bout being 

Athletic contests being scheduled in several sports with the University of Pittsburgh for the year 
1933, the boxing team made the maiden appearance. The score of the contest favored Navy 6-i, and 
resulted in Wright's keeping his record clean again in the 118 lb. class. Wendelburg made his bow to 
the Regiment with a classy win; Miller dropped his bout to Giansatti of the visitors. Peppard; boxing 
for McNaughton, was defeated in three rounds. Hopkins won handily as did Herold; Lambert proved 
too strong for his opponent and was able to score a technical knockout in the second round. The heavy- 
weight bout was uncontested, Pitt having no entry for this weight. 

In the next to last meet of the season the Blue and Gold was supreme, gaining a 7-1 win over 
Washington and Lee. Four bouts ended in knockouts for Navy; Miller, Herold, Lambert, and Cutter 
being victors via the coveted K. O. route. Hagel fighting for Nauman at 145 lbs. was the sole loser. By 



far the best fight of the evening and one of the best ever turned in by a Navy man was the bout of 
Captain Wright who jabbed and punched his opponent cleverly, consistently and devastingly for three 
rounds to win in a walk away. 

The highly touted boxing team from Syracuse University lived up to advance notices and 
administered to the visiting Navy team the worst defeat in fourteen years. The score was 6-i. "Beppo" 
Lambert scored Navy's only victory when he punched out a clean-cut triumph over Balash, a member 
of the Olympic tryout squad at San Francisco last year. Navy's other point came as the result of two 
drawn bouts. Captain Archie Wright was held to a tie verdict by Ray Burkett of Syracuse in the final 
bout of his career. The "Brute" thus brought to a close three years of varsity battling during which 
time he has lost only one decision. He has not been beaten in the last two years. Slade Cutter won the 
other half point. The rest can all be marked up on the negative side of the ledger. Miller and Hopkins 
both lost decisions, while Herold was kayoed in the third round by Negroni. 

The season is over and the past is buried. Somehow we expected to go through undefeated but the 
two defeats will serve to arm Spike and his men for the coming year. Two men will graduate. Captain 
Wright and Dolan, but the remainder of the team will be intact. There is little doubt in our minds but 
what the Blue and Gold will turn the tables on Virginia and Syracuse. McNaughton is the new captain. 
Good luck, Mac! 


Blouin, Capt 

, Coach 


THE first practice of the Cross Country team foreshadowed an auspicious season. The largest 
turnout for the sport since its beginning at the Academy heard Coach Thompson warn all hands 
that hard work, and plenty of it, was needed during the three short weeks that an interfering 
football schedule had allotted to the Harriers to train for the first meet. A scheduled trip to West 
Virginia seemed to have added a contagious enthusiasm to the whole squad. Hard work was relished, 
training was fun, the weather was ideal; no wonder Coach Thompson was able to call this year's 
edition the strongest Cross Country team in Naval Academy history. 

The first meet was held in perfect Cross Country weather. Nature had used a generous hand in 
decking the scene for the meet. Brilliant reds, gorgeous browns, joyous yellows were everywhere in 
abundance. Was it any wonder that the team scored a smashing victory over Lafayette? Paced by 
Hardman, six Navy men were tied for first: Hardman, Hailey, Fahy, Hommel, Griffith, Hutchinson. 
Campbell, of Lafayette, took seventh closely followed by the remaining Navy men. Captain Blouin and 
Mott. Perfect score: 15-40. 

Back Row — VoGELEY, Mgr.; Driver, Hyde, Lindsay, 
Mott, Hailey, Griffith, Bowen, Taylor 

Fran^ Row — Lt. Comdr. Shelley, Off. Rep.; Hommel,

Thompson, Coach 



The next meet, thanks again to the football schedule, was three weeks later. The first trip in the 
Academy history of the sport was to the mountain stronghold of West Virginia. Training on hills was 
the order of the day and in order to get the "biggest and best" in hills (which eventually proved to be 
far too small) "Tommy" had the team run over the hills and bunkers of Annapolis' Golf Club. 

West Virginia's hills lived up to their reputation. In a cold mist, which later turned to driving 
rain. Navy's speed merchants went down (or should we say "up"?) to a glorious defeat, 34-2.1, and the 
Mountaineers maintained their reputation of never having been beaten on their home course. Hyde, 
the first Navy man to finish was fourth, closely followed by Captain Blouin. Hardman took a bad spill 
at the halfway mark and did not finish. Bowen, third Navy man, was seventh, Fahy was eighth, and 
Hutchinson took tenth place. 

Not the least bit disheartened by this defeat and still imbued with the idea that they were "good," 
the team ran away from the University of Virginia's outfit two weeks later and had all but Blouin tie 
for first place. Lauck, captain of the Cavaliers, barely nosed out "Champ" Blouin for eighth place. 
Hardman, Fahy, Griffith, Hailey, Hommel, Hyde, and Hutchinson were the speedy seven. 

Hardman closed his career by taking first place in remarkably fast time. Duke took the next 
two places but fourth, fifth, and seventh were taken by Fahy, Hutchinson, and Griffith. 








HAVING lost several veterans by graduation and otherwise, the grapplers started the season as a 
more or less untried quantity; Mr. Schutz had his understudies working out and limbering up 
all fall. As soon as Christmas Leave was over, the season began in earnest. By the twenty-first 
of January a really formidable machine had been whipped into shape to cope with the heavy schedule 
which included Princeton, Pennsylvania, Virginia Military Institute, Michigan, Washington and Lee, 
Lehigh, and West \'irginia. 

The team went through the season with five victories and two defeats. Inexperience hampered 
several of the new men; this was being overcome as the season progressed. Captain Garry Coleman and 
"Killer" Kane were the team's outstanding stars. The other regulars excepting a few shifts as the 
season progressed, were Jurado, Dougherty, Campbell, Turnage, Koch, Graay, and Lehman. Of these 
men, Coleman, Kane, Campbell, Turnage, Koch, Grady, and Lehman will be lost by graduation. 
However, shifts in the line up at various stages of the season proved that Jurado, Dougherty, Winters, 
Adams, and Kirkpatrick will be a talented nucleus about which to build next year's machine. 


Top Row — Wright, Martin, Wagstaff, Tinker, 
Barker, Calhoun, Crowell, Cobb, Merrill,

TER, Mgr. 
Front Row — Capt. Sadler, Off. Rep.; Jurado, Dough- 
erty, Grady, Lehman, Kane, G. Coleman (C), 
Koch, Kirkpatrick, Adams, Turnage, Schutz, 



The first meet was featured by a two minute fall by Captain Coleman and a "knockout" by "Killer" 
Kane. Jurado ushered in the season winning a decision over Richter. Campbell followed by riding 
Snelham through most of the bout but got too anxious to throw his man and was himself pinned. 
Turnage next won a hardfought decision over Fisher. Then Koch found Gregory too fast and strong 
for him, and was thrown by the latter. Captain Hooker nosed out Adams. Captain Coleman threw 
Campbell. Classen eked out a victory over Lehman. Finally Kane won a decision over Bassett after 
knocking the latter out early in the bout. 

The following week the team came back with a more determined and aggressive attack to win from 
Penn tz to 8. Jurado, Turnage, Koch, and Coleman won decisions. Dougherty and Kane gained falls. 
Grady lost to Lee by a fall. Nixon won a decision over Adams. 

In the V. M. L meet the "bonecrushers" swamped the visitors 13-13. Jurado was upset, losing to 
Harknessby afall. Dougherty, Koch, Kirkpatrick, and Kane won by falls. Turnage lost by time advant- 
age. Grady won a hard fought decision over Landis. Coleman was forced to forfeit to Meens when he 
injured his arm and head. 

I 1 






On February eleventh the Michigan Wolverines invaded MacDonough Hall to be beaten ii-6. 
Jurado and Dougherty started out auspiciously by winning two decisions. Winters hit a snag and lost 
to Helliwell on time advantage. Koch had to go an extra period to gain a decision over Thomas. Grady 
lost on time to Hosier. Coleman threw Wilson. Lehman and Baus gave the fans their biggest thrill. 
The former won on decision after a furious bout. Kane put a decisive end to the meet winning a fall 
over Spoden. 

Much vaunted and much heralded Washington and Lee team lost a commendable undefeated 
record. Jurado and Dougherty won by decisions. Turnage was thrown by Munger. Koch won on time. 
Grady lost to Smith by a fall. Coleman threw Hodges. Lehman lost the decision to Pritchard. Kane 
again finished the meet with a fall, this time over Bolen. 

The grapplers' visit to Lehigh resulted in a close meet with the victory going to Lehigh. After 
having seven minutes time advantage over his opponent, Jurado lost by a fall. Dougherty won a 
decision over Case. Next, Winters lost the decision to Dalling. Koch rang up a decision over C. Peck. 
Grady was thrown by Bishop, a man who has proved himself to be of championship caliber. 


"1 \ 

Coleman tried to throw Kremer, but had to content himself with time advantage. Lehman lost 
on time to Captain Pete Peck. Kane won a decision over Wolcott. 

The season came to a close with the West Virginia meet on March fourth. Jurado won his first 
fall of the season over Sharp. Clay, in his first meet, lost a decision to Chittum. Winters had time on 
Gainer. Wright and Adams lost hard fought decisions. Captain Coleman, in a fitting ending to his 
midshipman wrestling career, threw Swisher. Kirpatrick lost a decision to Gwynne. Kane also finished 
his last bout commendable by gaining a fall over Schweitzer. Killer hadn't lost a bout the whole season. 

So the season ended. Though it was slightly overshadowed bv last year's record the season was 
highly successful. 

For awhile there was talk of sending Coleman, Kane, and Dougherty to the Nationals where it 
seemed certain that further honors awaited these undefeated warriors. After the season closed Dougher- 
ty was elected captain for the coming year. We feel certain that "Doc" will carrv on in a true Navy 




THE 1933 season looked promising despite the graduation of stars of the '31 squad. Returning were 
Captain Ray Thompson, fresh from National and Olympic triumphs, and Ashforth, Davis, 
McCampbell, Hyland, Torrey; and — from the plebes, such able aquatic performers as Plichta, 
McEntee and Stevens. 

In the first aquatic meet of the winter sports season, the mermen succeeded in outclassing the 
University of Virginia swimmers, 61-9, winning all first places and clipping more than four seconds 
from the old 400 yard relay record of 3 :5i.6, established only last year. Thompson and McCampbell, 
Navy's two intercollegiate champions, were the conspicuous performers of the day, the former swim- 
ming the 50 yard free style event, while the latter copped the fancy diving. Hyland, Milbrath, Torrey, 
and Stevens were the other first place winners. 

Taking seven first places in eight events, the tankmen easily defeated the University of Pennsyl- 
vania swimming team Saturday, 49J/2 to ii 3^. In the 400 yard relay, Stevens, Plichta, Jahncke and 
Thompson, swimming in the order named, set a new pool record of three minutes, forty-five and six- 


tenths seconds. Captain Thompson, as usual, took first places in both the fifty and hundred-yard free 
style events. Navy again lost 49-2.2. to Yale. Captain Thompson, winning first in two events, was Navy's 
highest scorer, and won both his races in very creditable time. The defeat of McCampbell,came as a dis- 
tinct surprise. Navy took the first in the relay by three yards, but was disqualified for two premature 
starts. In the meet with Rutgers, Walter Ashley, Sophomore diver, shared individual honors with 
Thompson when Navy was defeated 31-40. In the final meet of the season, the Navy Swimming team 
defeated Columbia. Ray Thompson gave the Regiment a thrill by taking first place in the 50, the 
100, and swimming on the winning relay, thus putting himself in first place in total points scored in 
the League. Stevens took the 12.0 and finished about a foot behind Thompson in the 100, and then 
repeated with a fine race in the relay. Dave McCampbell gave a stellar exhibition in the diving, and 
Hyland came about seven seconds from the pool record in the 440. 

Climaxing a brilliant career Ray Thompson won the 50 and 100 yard free style in the Eastern 
Intercollegiate championship at Penn. McCampbell defending champion was forced to bow to the 
superior style of Loud, Yale. One week later in the National Intercollegiates Thompson gathered 
first place in the 50 yard free style and the relay team of Stevens, Plichta, Jahncke, and Thompson 
gathered a second place. 



Miller, Capt. 

Foster, Coach 


TRUE to form Coach Foster mustered another very formidable suicide club this 
year. Miller, Pasche, and Close, star forwards, played games all season that will 
make them strong contestants for All-American honors. The team won five out 
of the six games played, but the game lost was to N. Y. A. C, a group of old-time 
stars. The collegiate title which was taken by Penn last year was reannexed. 

The first game was with N. Y. A. C. and resulted in a X9-i5 victory for the oppo- 
sition. The Patron Saints of Water Polo again proved too formidable. 

Next, last year's defeat at the hands of Penn was very nicely avenged by the 
score of 2.5-13. Close led the scoring with four touch goals.

Our final venture in the science of aquatic homicide was against Columbia. The 
game was the most exciting of the year with the possible exception of the first. 

The season was very successful. Credit cannot justly be given to the stars alone. 
Men who will graduate and contributed a great deal to put out a winning team were 
Curtis, Selby, Ogden, and Tyree. A nucleus for next year's team is to be found in 
Close, Gunn, Fitzpatrick, Oakley, Atkins, and Johnston. With these men and the 
veterans of this year's Plebe team, Coach Foster has very able material upon which 
he can depend for a fine season next year. 

In the Rutgers game Pasche starred with five touch goals to his credit. Navy 
won 35-16. The following day, the C. C. N. Y. aggregation was successfully handled 
to the tune of i8-i2. in our favor. 




WITH the old guard returning in four events, the Gymnasts approached the season with great 
expectation. By the first meet Coach Mang had rounded his followers into such form and 
coordination that they were able to defeat all comers by a wide margin. 
Exceptional performances became an obsession, it seemed, as Captain Denton, Connolly and 
Curtze won first after first. The galleries were not without thrills as Connolly first equalled and then 
beat twice his last year's Intercollegiate record of 4.4 seconds on the xo ft. rope first with a 4.1 and 
then, in the last meet, by flashing to the top in 4.1. Denton and Connolly repeatedly surpassed their 
work in the Olympics, where Denton took ind on the rings while Connolly was 3rd on the 8 meter 
rope, excelled only by two of Coach Mang's champions of former years.

The meets were colorful and each held the interest of a large audience from start to finish. Spring- 
field, runner-up against Navy for the League Championship last year, was defeated in our first meet 
41 to 13. M. I. T. fell next by 45 to 9. Then, in two consecutive meets in as many nights, Mr. Mang's 
acrobats sunk Princeton and Temple on their own seas with respective scores of 33-11 and 31-11. 
Dartmouth was sent home with a total of 10 points against Navy's 34, leaving Navy again Intercollegi- 
ate Champions, a title which she has never relinquished in her history as a Gym Team. 

With caps set for N-stars, our eleven best set out for West Point and the Intercollegiate Individual 
Meet there, determined to swamp Army. 

Grant, Fahy, Akeroyd, Bemis, Schock, Kunkle, Beaman, Rutherford and others should be heard 
from next year. 1934, from all prospects, will be another Championship team. Curtze, Connolly, 
Barclay, Fernald, Davis and Denton will be gone; but those we leave to carry on are of that which 
marks champions. 





AT the start of the season indications pointed to a well-balanced team. The fact that the team 
/-\ was undefeated in collegiate competition bears out the accuracy of the pre-season dope. Lost 
/ \ by graduation to this year's squaci were Adams and Dimitrijevic, last year's sabre intercollegi- 
ate champions, and Captain VanEvera of the epee team. Returning were Grubbs, Tilburne, Kait and 
Captain Galantin to form the nucleus of a squad filled out by men of last year's reserves, notably 
Dietz and Foerster, Assisting Coach Deladrier we had the services of Dr. Macerata, whose task was the 
development of a new sabre team. 

The first meet, our only loss, was against the experienced swordsmen of the New York Fencer's 
Club, composed largely of Olympic competitors — score, 11-6. 

The following week Navy introduced for the first time a triangular meet and emerged victorious 
over both opponents. The Philadelphia Sword Club fell by the score of 11-6. Princeton likewise suc- 
cumbed, 10-7. In both meets Scherer and Smith copped top honors.

New York University was next and presented a stalwart group of fencers to challenge the skill of 
the Navy fighters, and were defeated only by the margin of one match taken again by Don Scherer. 
The score, 9-8. 

The meet at Yale was the brightest spot of a great season, Navy winning 10-7. The splendid work 
of Captain Galantin was here demonstrated to a marked degree; henceforth the epee team led by him 
was undefeated. 

In rapid succession followed victories over Hamilton, 13-4; M. I. T., 16-1; and Columbia, 13-4. 
In this last meet Grubbs was invincible, winning all five bouts. The next dual meet was with Penn. 
which Navy won 12--5. 

Closing the season we went to Philadelphia for the intercollegiates where the foil team advanced 
to the finals, finishing fourth but besting Army at the same time; while the epee team of Browne and 
Galantin won the championship against a formidable field. The sabre men also contributed a point to 
give Navy znd place for the ind successive year in the 3 weapon competition. Much credit for the 
success of the Blue and Gold swordsmen was due to the excellent spirit characterizing the work of 
the entire squad. 






I ED by Captain Johnson the raqueteets scored a decisive 8-i victory over Maryland in the opening 
I match on April second. Virginia came next after a three weeks interim due to inclement weather. 

L_ The Navy players took every match from their opponents to turn in a perfect score of 9-0. Elliot 
Loughlin played top position for Navy and won with ease. Only one singles and one doubles match 
were extended to three sets. 

Again displaying perfect form on the twenty-seventh of April the Blue and Gold against William 
and Mary turned in another perfect score of 9-0. McClung moved up to third position for this match and 
showed himself to be a capable player. Against the Intercollegiate Championship brand of tennis 
displayed by North Carolina on April 19, only the doubles team, Loughlin and Johnson, was able to 
win. Loughlin extended it to 10-8 in the first set against Grant but dropped the second 6-0. The follow- 
ing day a reversal of fortunes was had at the expense of Hampden-Sydney. The second and third doubles 
teams substituted in this match and gave good accounts of themselves. The score was Navy 8, Hampden- 
Sydney, I. On the fourth of May the team from Duke University met defeat at the hands of the Navy 

swingers by a score of 6-2.. McAfee was the sole singles loser, while Reiter and Gold dropped their 
match in doubles. 

The week-end saw the team off to Cambridge for the annual tilt with Harvard, the trip being the 
first made by the tennis squad since 192.9. While the score of 6-3 indicates a decisive defeat, the matches 
were close and Coach Gaudet was quite satisfied with the performances of his men . Loughlin continuing 
in his place as first man defeated Frame 6-2., 2.-6, 6-1.; the other singles players turning in losses. How- 
ever, two of our doubles teams emerged victorious. 

More difficulty was encountered in the Pittsburgh University squad which Navy defeated 5 V2 to 
3 ]/2- Loughlin, Johnson and Gold were the only winners though the first two mentioned also won their 
doubles match. Rhoads and Chambliss had their doubles match called on account of darkness after 
running to 6-6 in the third set. 

In rapid succession before the much awaited Penn match came victories of 7-2., and 5-4 over Temple 
and Georgetown. On the first day of June Week before a gallery composed of proud mothers and fathers 
and fair maidens, the Navy team took on the reputedly strong University of Pennsylvania six. The 
score of 5-4 in favor of Penn is in itself indicative of the type of play demonstrated. Loughlin and 
Johnson each won their singles match and together took the first doubles match. Winning for the Blue 
and Gold in their final varsity appearance were Reiter and Gold, who took the final doubles match. 




THE 1933 season was a most successful one for the indoor fusileers, finding Navy victorious in all 
shoulder-to-shoulder matches and all but two telegraphic contests. The team fell one point short 
of their national record of 1413, set in 1932., in the match with West Virginia, the losers in last 
years record shoot. 

Captain "Dave" McDougal's mid-season 191 was a national record and easily the high point of 
the season's scoring. His absence will be sorely felt next year. 

In the Eastern Intercollegiates Navy came through to best twenty other teams, scoring a 1357. 
Cincinnati's 1343 was second and third place went to George Washington University for a 1340. Towns- 
ley of Cincinnati garnered high honors in this meet with "possible" scores at prone and kneeling, his 
total being 183. 

Throughout the season Lt. Mumma repeatedly proved, true to his pre-season statement, that "a 
good 'scope operated by a man who knows, is worth ten points to a team in any match." He was truly 
the helpful, yet invisible, sixth man of the Navy team.

THOUGH this sport found no collegiate competition, the rifle team matched shots with the best 
military teams in the East. The season opened with the 71st New York National Guard nursing 
the small end of a 1198 to 12.14 score, individual scoring honors going to Klinksiek of Navy for 
his 142., which proved to be the season's highest. 

The following week we "shot it out" with the D. C. National Guard, who amassed enough lead 
at the shorter ranges to outweigh Navy's comback at 600 yards, the final totals giving the Capitol 
City shooters 2.500 to Navy's 2.2.87. 

Next came a triangle meet with the Philadelphia and Quantico Marine teams, the latter garnering 
1334 points, a high score in any service. Navy a 1191, and Philadelphia a 1178. 

We closed the season with a one point win at Peekskill, N. Y., over the 7th Regiment, New York 
National Guard. 2.2.96 and 1195 were the final totals, with seven Navy shooters firing their last match 
as Midshipmen.

Originally a Vender of Wine 

The modern broker who engages in large-scale 
financial operations takes his name from a humble 
origin. Broker is derived from the Old French 
hroquier or hrokier, a dialectal form of hrochier "one 
who taps a cask in order to draw the liquor." 
Thus, the broker was in the first place a retail vender 
of wine. The first meaning in English was "petty 
dealer" or "peddler," and from this lowly begin- 
ning the word has developed to its present dignity.

On October i8, 1932., Lieutenant Wolfe of the Army Air Corps was killed in a 
crash during maneuvers in the Philippines. On November i, 193^, Mrs. Wolfe, 
his wridow, in Manila, received a check from The Lincoln Life for $z,ooo. 

Lieutenant Wolfe's Lincoln Life Policy carried the special facility of payment 
clause — available to Officers of the Navy, Army and Marine Corps — which 
provides for the payment of a certain sum immediately upon notification from 
the Navy or War Department. Word of Lieutenant Wolfe's death had been 
received by radio and upon being advised by the War Department, The 
Lincoln Life immediately cabled payment to the ividoiv in Manila. 

Claim service such as this is invaluable to Officers of the Navy 
and Marine Corps — on duty in all parts of the world.

the Service can provide Guaranteed Life Incomes for retirement.

A roariiifj fire \v:is built in an

few minutes later the doors 
were flung wide and out he

the steaks thoroughly cooked.

his head with a hood made from 
his shirt. He breathed through

EXPLANATION: All cigarette 
manufacturers use heat treat- 
ment. The first Camel cigarette 
was manufactured under the 
heat-treating process. Every one 
of the billions of Camels pro- 

duced since has received the 
necessary heat treatment. 

Harsh, raw tobaccos require 
intensive processing under high 
temperatures. The more ex- 
pensive tobaccos, which are 
naturally mild, call for only a 
moderate application of heat. 

It is a fact, well known by leaf 
tobacco experts, that Camels 
are made from finer, MORE 
EXPENSIVE tobaccos than 
any other popular brand.
