1924 Marshall LB.jpg

TED CONGER MARSHALL

Long Beach, California

"Ted"

"TED'S" good fellowship reached an apex of development at the Army Game, when he valiantly defended a civilian against a horde of embattled farmers. They must have been farmers, for their coats were off. "Ted's" protege was in evening dress, good form and congenial disposition. The two became such friends that "Ted" invited him to the Naval Academy any week-end, promising a decidedly high time, since the Duty Officers meant nothing to him. In fact, he would put his charming new friend in midshipman's uniform, which no doubt would be quite a treat for a civilian who had never seen Annapolis. After a few more encouraging remarks concerning the inefficiency of D. O.'s, they parted in Philadelphia. Monday morning "Ted" walked into a section room and saw his recent friend in the pathetic role of instructor—his sleeves encircled with gold braid. This is a convincing demonstration of the democratic spirit prevailing at our institution and "Ted" has done credit to his Alma Mater in this respect.
