The December 24, 1936, issue of the Anchor reports:
Stanton Carl Arendts of Kensett, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl E. Arendts, has been nominated to be the first alternate to Gerald Carney of New Hampton for an appointment to the Naval Academy at Annapolis, MD, according to word received from Congressman Fred Biermann, who made the nomination. The appointment begins in July, 1937, it is said. With the present world situation, Arendts is almost assured of an appointment to the Academy, it is understood.
The Stan Arendts we know, who often signs his emails SCA, also served in the Navy. Stan, fill us in on this earlier version of SCA, please.
