I recall my wife spotting Jim Bell at our 50th reunion wearing a multicolored sport coat which was identical to one she had given me and which I detested. Years later I was exchanging E-mails with Jim and mentioned the hideous sportcoat. He told me his was a gift from a nurse at Bethesda Naval hospital where Jim stayed for several months after coming home from his POW stay in Hanoi. He also disliked it but out of respect for this kind nurse he wore it anyway. I also recall attending a funeral service at Arlington cemetery for a 55 grad and found myself standing right behind Jim whom I hadn't seen in years. I tapped him on the back and when he turned around I said, "aren't you Jim Bell, the pride of 54? He looked surprised and said,"Yes, but who the hell are you?" I said " Jim, it's me Charlie Shelton who plebe summer showed you how to smartly execute present arms with the old M1 rifle." He laughed and gave me a big Jim Bell grin! He was a great classmate for sure.RIP.

Checking in from Rochester, New York, where Lake Ontario is at rec0rd high Levels.
Marilyn and I are doing OK for 88. I now realize that when I was 4 and getting stuff for my Mother, she was training me for old age and assisting Marilyn.

Absolutely right. Jim Bell told one about a guy going to buy a new suit at a suit sale at Robert Hall Tailors. Its is the way he told it that it was side-spliting. He used gestures and the way he told the story. Guaranteed to make you roar in laughter. Too bad no one had ever taped him tellling it.

Will,
Jim was a talented story teller; carefully told all the details to set up the story.

Predicting the A/N game based on past or recent performance is a dangerous thing...14-2?

Don't start celebrating just yet. Which offense is going to show up? The one that played Notre Dame or the one that played Houston. You can bet that Army is going to have an answer for Caruthers. But Beat Army anyway!

Wowee! Was that ever a ding-donger of a game! Judging solely by the 56-41 scores, one might think that both defenses needed strengthening. But it was more a measure of their powerful offenses, and Navy defense did make 4 interceptions. I'll bet that Army coach was watching with growing apprehension. CinC Trophy bye-bye!
