From the 1947 Lucky Bag:
Charles Morgan Moore
As colonel of his R.O.T.C. battalion, Charley laid his first claim to fame. On entering the Academy he henceforth was known among his many friends as "Colonel." Charley wasn't the athletic type, for that involved too much work. A shelf of excellent books and a rack of pipes were more to his liking after drill. Charley often miscalculated his slide rule factors, and as a result spent many anxious moments after exam week. When not dodging the Academic Board, "Colonel" was found trying to untangle the snarls of his romances with pen and telephone. Here comes a good officer for the sub service.
The Class of 1947 was graduated in June 1946 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
