DAVID THOMAS BYRNES

Alton, Illinois

Dave, who hails from the Prairie State, traded for some unknown reason the carefree life of the University of Illinois for the rigors of the Naval Academy. He met the challenge with his easygoing manner and quickly became involved in academics, concert band, choir, and intramural athletics. Four years on the Severn went by quickly, and before he knew it, he was throwing pennies at Tecumseh for the last time. Outside of girls, Dave's favorite topic of conversation was usually submarines. His personality and desire to do his best will make him a success in whatever he undertake

WILLIAM HOWARD CAMPBELL

Burbank, California

Bill, a quiet, unassuming fellow from Burbank, California, came to the Academy directly from prep school. During his four years he spread his time between academics, intramural sports, and the winning of contests which have netted him a considerable sum of money. Bill's chief outside interest was hot-rodding, a natural interest for a Southern Californian. At the Academy, Bill claimed the flattest "flap-top" haircut, one of his many achievements. Upon graduation Bill plans to seek duty on the west coast. But wherever he goes, we are sure that he will continue his winning ways and become a great success in the Fleet.
