<p>
<em>Charles Ingram Humber, Jr.</em>&nbsp;died January 22, 1945, a prisoner of war aboard a Japanese transport ship. He was 39, and had gone to war in the best of health. The cause of his death is officially given as acute colitis, suffered on board the prison ship en route to Japan. He was known to his classmates as &ldquo;Polly&rdquo;.</p>
<p>
It is not easy to write about Polly. It is hard to describe him as he should be described. There are so many things to tell. There were so many sides to his many-faceted nature that many people were not aware of. Undoubtedly there were many more that his family knew, and other friends knew.</p>
<p>
He was a great athlete, the wildly acclaimed of cheering crowds, in a youthful world in which the truly great athlete was an idol. Such celebrity thrust him early into a limelight that was not only local, but national. And, though thus early used to applause, he never lost a profound and endearing modesty.</p>
<p>
Like many other athletes, he was not an attentive student, and, although not an attentive student, he had common sense to a degree that I have never known excelled, was remarkably apt at grasping new problems and keen in arriving at logical and astute conclusions.</p>
<p>
Some of Polly&rsquo;s friends probably were not aware of his devotion to his family and the joy he took in his home. He was a tender husband and a devoted father. If he could be said to harbour pride in his heart, it was his delight in little Peter and his little daughter &ldquo;Tito&rdquo;. After he was married his whole life really revolved about his home.</p>
<p>
He liked a garden. He was one of those men who take keen pleasure in digging in the earth and watching the growing green. He looked forward to each fall with happy anticipation, for he was an ardent sportsman and an excellent shot.</p>
<p>
Many must remember him as a delightful host. He was thoughtful of his friends, in little ways and great. It was a real pleasure to him to entertain his friends and his acquaintances in his own house. And he had in a superlative sense that quality without which there can be no genuine friendship. He was loyal. As a friend and as a soldier he was very dependable.</p>
<p>
I think the best way to describe him in his chosen profession is that he was an officer the enlisted men liked. He lacked one trait, and that was &ldquo;file boning&rdquo; at the expense of others. His deep generosity included not only those near and dear, but also casual professional associates. His dependability was something to be relied on not only by the man who ranked him but by his subordinates.</p>
<p>
He had a sharper-keen sense of humour. It belonged with the great, and was not merely a talent for wisecracks or cutting criticism. It was far subtler than the average person realized. He often expressed a dry wit that left the other person catching the fullness of his meaning only after he had left the conversation. His was a mind of great spontaneity and natural good-humor. Since that is only a part of a man&rsquo;s mind, I think some of Polly&rsquo;s deeper feeling and notions can best be summed up in these verses of Rabindranath Tagore:</p>
<p>
&ldquo;Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them.<br />
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer lt.<br />
Let me not look for allies in life&rsquo;s battle-field, but to my own strength.<br />
Let me not crave in anxious year to be saved, but hope for the patience to win my freedom.<br />
Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone,<br />
But let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure.&rdquo;</p>
<p>
If Polly could see me sitting here now writing this he would be keenly amused. He&rsquo;d smile out of his eyes and say. &ldquo;Well, I&rsquo;ve got you working for me again&rdquo;. But he would know, I think, that I feel it a privilege to add a word to what Polly himself made &mdash;his record.</p>
<p>
Charles Humber, Jr. was born in Oklahoma on May 3, 1905. He was the son of Charles Ingram and Frances Garrard Humber. While Polly was still a child the family moved to Georgia and lived near Eatonton. His mother died when he was a child, and, being the baby of the family, he was raised mainly by his sisters. He attended the public schools in Georgia, and a military preparatory school in Milledgville, until 1924, when he entered school at Cornwall-on-Hudson, N. Y., in preparation for entrance to West Point. He matriculated at West Point in June, 1925, and at once became intensely interested in football and baseball. He played on the varsity every year he was at the Academy, in these two sports. In his first class year he was captain of the football team and a cadet lieutenant in his company. Polly was named as guard on several All American football teams during his last two years in school. He was &ldquo;found&rdquo; in studies in his plebe year, and so the following year he attended William &amp; Mary College, returning to West Point in 1927 and rejoining the Class of &lsquo;31, with which he was graduated.</p>
<p>
In September, 1931 after graduation. Polly was in San Antonio, Texas, at Randolph Field, and later was at Fort Sam Houston. Here he served in the 23rd Infantry for four years, and very soon after arriving he identified himself as a very dependable officer who bad the confidence and respect of the older officers in the regiment. Polly was quickly drafted as a football coach and he spent much of his time in the field of athletics. Being extremely gregarious he also quickly found many friends in San Antonio, and he was much sought after with invitations by the mothers of the popular young ladies of that time. It was here that he met Miss Harriet Elizabeth St. Guilhem, and they were married In Houston, Texas in the summer of 1935.</p>
<p>
Polly was ordered to Fort Benning that year and became a student at the Infantry school. In 1936 he was graduated from the Infantry School and transferred to the 29th Infantry at Fort Benning, where he remained for the next four years. Here he served in various capacities, as munitions officer, assistant supply officer, service company commander and athletic coach. In 1940 Polly was ordered to the Philippines and he arrived there that fall with his wife and two children (Peter and Tito). Because of the growing tension in the Pacific his family wan evacuated to the United States in 1941, and this is the last time Polly ever saw them.</p>
<p>
I have been unable to obtain a clear picture of just where Polly was and what he did throughout the time he was in the Philippines. It is certain that he was a member of the 3rd Battalion, 31st Infantry in August, 1941, and at this time he was a captain. He was detailed in the General Staff Corps December 18, 1941 and served as assistant Chief of Staff G-2 for Major General W. F. Sharp. (He appears to have gone to Mindanao in 1942, and not much more is known until he appeared in a Japanese prisoner of war camp. His promotion to Major came on April 15, 1942, and to Lt. Colonel in May, 1942. He was listed as missing in action as of May 7, 1942, and as a prisoner of war as of May 14, 1943. His death occurred as a prisoner, on January 22, 1945. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Charles Ingram Humber; his son, Pierre St. Guilhem Humber; a daughter, Mary Kathleen Humber, now residing in, San Antonio, Texas; an uncle, Col. R. C. Humber, Washington, D. C.; and by three sisters, Mrs. Frank Hean, Miss Ceres Marion and Frances Humber.</p>
<p>
He was awarded the Legion of Merit and also entitled to the American Defense medal with a bronze star; the Asiatic-Pacific campaign medal with one bronze service star for participation in the Philippine Islands campaign; the World War II Victory medal; the Philippine Defense ribbon with one bronze star; and the Distinguished Unit Badge with two bronze oak leaf clusters.</p>
<p>
As I look back tonight and think of Polly, many pictures rise before my eyes as I gaze down the avenue of years. His description to me of his early childhood, when as a tiny tot, he was chased by his brother and would run and jump in his father&rsquo;s arms. No matter whether he was right or wrong, his father would let no one touch him. He was safe there&mdash;that was his haven, his father&rsquo;s arms. While at West Point, going to a night club and being completely surprised because he was something of a celebrity; he had not realized that he was well known because he was captain of the Army football team and an All American guard. Having the mess sergeant&rsquo;s wife come around to see him because she was worried about her husband who was off on a &ldquo;spree&rdquo;, and going out and finding the mess sergeant for his wife, when he wanted very much to be doing something else. Planning a party for his friends, and the delight, almost childlike, he took in all the details. Mad at a man, which wasn&rsquo;t often, but like a volcano emptying while it lasted. Digging in his garden, growing vegetables and making minute plans on the cost and yield, as if it were a major business.</p>
<p>
I could go on and give little pictures forever, that come to life when I think of Polly. I think his other friends could probably give many more.</p>
