Gen. Colin Powell slated to speak at Academy

The U.S. Naval Academy is launching the new year with a series of events in January capped off with a speech by Gen. Colin L. Powell.

General Powell, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who will be the Clinton administration's military adviser during its formative stages, played a major role in the Persian Gulf war.

The topic of his Jan 11. speech was not known last week, but he is expected to field questions on the Gulf crisis. The event is scheduled for 6 p.m.

On Jan. 22, the Naval Academy Band will perform a concert as a farewell to Senior Chief Musician Gayle Thompson-Steele, who is retiring after 20 years as the academy's "first lady of song."

Midshipmen return to the academy after their winter break Jan. 5, and the second semester begins Jan. 13.
