CAPTAINS LOUGHLIN AND CUTTER

The United States Navy, an amateur athletic body with a pretty good fighting organization on the side, has always been singularly fortunate in its choices for the Naval Academy's athletic director. This August, Captain Elliott Loughlin (above) returns to sea duty, leaving behind him an inspiring record of achievements. It was Loughlin who put the Navy back into postseason bowl competition after a 30-year absence, who sparked the fleet-wide fund drive for the sorely needed new stadium and put new life into such sports as wrestling and cross-country. Succeeding him will be Captain Slade D. Cutter (below), a submariner who accounted for 19 enemy vessels during World War II, but who is just as proudly remembered as the man whose 20-yard field goal in 1934 won the Navy its first victory (3-0) over Army in 13 years.
