"Andy" "Pat" "Stew"

Yes, children this is Pat Stewart of Navy. Speaks three languages including Georgian, and is rapidly progressing in Baltimorean. His talents, however, are not restricted to this field alone. List, while we expound on his numerous accomplishments.

October and November find him bemoaning the fact that Sep Leave is over. However, the lure of the track and field soon drive those fond memories back into the remote corners of his head. Winter is the season of hibernation for most of us and especially for Pat. Spring calls him back to the vaulting pit again.

No, he is not a "Red Mike" by any means; but, so far, he has proved to be invulnerable as far as serious affairs are concerned. "I'm dragging in the one hundred and forty-five pound class tonight, but I am coming down to middle weight for the June Ball."

His frankness is astounding at times. He has been known to utter such untactful things as, "Sir, you are absolutely wrong about that."

May we be shipmates some day, Pat.

'Track 4, 3, 2, 1; "31" 2; "N" 1; 2 P. O.'


Pat was a pole jumper on the Track Team.
