Stevens, ' 35, bet­tered a second United States colle­giate swimming record Saturday, 16 February, as the undefeated United States Naval Academy Swimming team defeated the college of the City of New York, 48 to 23. Stevens es­tablished a new United States record for 150 foot pools by clipping 28 sec­onds from the 220- yard free style swim set by Samson of Michigan in 1927. The Midshipman swam the dis­tance in 2m. 21.7s. Stevents has al­ready set a new United States record in the 440 yard swim. He paddled the distanee in Sm. 14.7s, breaking the mark held by O'Connor of Stanlord 8iDce 1916.

He forbade duelling, criticism of super­iors, the wearing of civilian dress a­shore, he likewise forbade the Mid­shipmen lending money to each other or becoming indebted to tradesmen, while gambling, either public or pri­vate, was absolutely prohibited. An incident which occured on board one of Rodgers vessels while cruising in the Archipelago in the summer of 1826 may be quoted as illustrative of the discipline maintained in the old navy. The story is narrated by one of the officers of the vessel. A short time since one of our Lieu­tenants accidently heard one of the crew whistling on the quarter deck. " Mount the capstan,' said he, ' and whistle until I order you to stop." ' Aye, aye, sir,' was the ready reply. Whereupon the sailor seated himaelf upon it and whistled away for a lone
