Ben Schemmer ’54 with Goat and Al Rupp ’55 borrowed Billy XII for a couple of days. Al, a cheerleader, is walking behind and left of Ben Schemmer. Ben, AL and Scotty Wetzel ’54 were the three cadets who went to Annapolis to steal the goat and bring it to West Point. Ben and Al went in a convertible, driven by an enlisted member of the Band, because they thought the goat’s horns would be too large for a sedan. Unknown to them Scotty Wetzel went alone and met Joseph U Weaver a University of Maryland student, and the two groups accidentally met one another after midnight near the goat pen.
