n.— «As for the godforsaken chopping, that is the practice of requiring plebes, or freshmen, to walk with short fast steps and lifting their knees high with each step inside Bancroft Hall, the dormitory, and squaring all corners while sounding off with stirring phrases such as “Beat Army, sir!”» —“Mids are not crazy, it’s just their lingo” by Earl Kelly in U.S. Naval Academy The Capital (Annapolis, Md.) May 22, 2005.
