Charles Morgan Redfield

"Rojo" "Red" "Mose"

"WHEN Red entered the Navy the barbers profession lost a promising artist, to judge from the shingle-bob he constructed on his roommate's cranium during the early stages of Plebe year.

Although often hard-pressed by the Ac Department, Rojo managed to emerge from each scuffle with colors still flying, though generally a bit tattered. Though not one of our prominent reptiles, he is not a Red Mike by a long shot. In fact, he has quite a way with the feebler sex. Since Second Class Christmas leave Mose is a changed man. Since finding his heart's desire he no longer lavishes on femininity the blandishments of his charms.

Though not an athlete of distinction, he is one of exceptional versatility, having gone out for every sport but checkers during Plebe year. Three days per sport was his usual limit. Then having mastered its intricacies he would turn to another for more worlds to conquer.

His unfailing good-nature and humor make him always a welcome addition to any party and should help him a long way through this vale of tears called Life.

"Sit down, Mr. Redfield, I'm afraid you're a sea-lawyer."
