Traditional enemies on the gridiron, Annapolis and West Point got together recently in the persons of their superintendents—Rear Admiral William R. Smedberg III and Lieutenant General Garrison Davidson—in a gesture of friendship. The occasion was the presentation by General Davidson of a check for $1,107 to Admiral Smedberg as a gift from cadets to midshipmen for the new Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium at the Naval Academy at Annapolis. The new 30,000-seat amphitheater (below) will stand one mile from the academy buildings and will be completed in 1959. Since there are no federal funds available for this structure, money is being raised by the nonprofit Naval Academy Athletic Association to meet the $3,100,000 construction figure. They've set up Box 777, Annapolis, Md. to receive contributions for the project, under an advisory board which includes Secretary of Navy Thomas S. Gates.
