Transcript Houston Largest Seaport ( Continued from Page 1.) of which 15 are public wharves with lengths alongside of from 460 to 800 feet. Ship terminals and industrial plants are located all along the chan­nel. Only four and a half miles from the city hall are the Turning Basin and most of the municipal berths, which are within the city limits. Via the Intracoastal Canal, Houston's warehouses are connected with com­mercial sources of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers and even with those of the Great Lakes. A ..! shaILow- dTaft barge channel leads from the Turning Basin to the heart of the city's bus­iness district. Named for General Sam Hous­ton, commander of Texas forces in the struggle for her independence and first president of the Republic, the city was founded in 1836. Houston was one of the Republic's first capi­tals, and there the first permanent capitol building was constructed. On a spot near the city, which is now in­cluded in a state park, was fought the battle of San Jacinto, on April the 21st, 1836, a battle which has been called the sixteenth decisive battle in world history. Besides serving as an early capital, Houston also boasted the first railway in Texas and the first newspaper. That first railroad must have destined Houston to become the great rail and transportation center that she is today. The city may well be proud of the large number of rail­roads, fine highways, and commercial airlines which radiate from it. Hous­ton has even greater reason to be proud of her Museum of Fine Arts, of her Symphony Society, almost countless churches, and an extensive system of public and private schools and universities. With a few of these facts in mind, a visitor may want to see many of the interesting places in and near th~ city. At the San Jacinto Battle­grounds, a Memorial which is the tallest monument in the world com­memorates the winning of Texas in­dependence. General Sam Houston's home still stands in Huntsville, and at Old Washington- on- the- Brazos is the first capital of Texas. The Museum of Fine Arts may attract some visits by strangers, or the Hermann Park Zoo THE BLUE BONNET and a variety of others; though prob­ably more frequented by visitors are the Sylvan Beach resort or any of the city's eight golf courses. .' 1'. Houston and Fleet Finals ( Continued from Page 1.) of dissension. Tough luck Harry, we are proud of you, in our eyes you are the champ. Chick, our twice successive all Navy Champ, proved that he deserves the proud name he bears by defeating Brown of the Dobbin in slightly less than two minutes. Chick was the aggressor throughout the whole bout, never letting up for a single instant. It was just a matter of time until our champ could get a deciding hold. Our little wrestler proved to everyone that he is the real champion by win­ning all his bouts this year by falls except one which was won in two overtime periods. A great deal of credit is due to Welborne, Buttler and the wrestling officers, Lt. ( jg) E. A. McDonald, En­sign J. C. Jonson and to Lt. Comdr. W. E. Tarbutton, the Athletic Officer for their cooperation during the year. The crew and Officers are very proud of all of you men. We pay you the highest compliment the Navy can; " Well Done". ....... Why Worry? Either you are successful, or you are not successful. If you are successful there is no­thing to worry about. If you are not successful, there are only two things to worry about. Your health is either good or you are sick. If your health is good, there is no­thing to worry about. If your health is not good, there is nothing to worry about. You are going to get well or you are going to die. If you are going to die, there are only two things to worry about. You are either going to Heaven, or you are not. If you are going to Heaven, there is nothing to worry about. If you are going to the other place, you will be so busy shaking hands with old friends you won't have time to worry. So why worry? 3 Entertainment Planned By City of Houston This year the Houston will be the first of two naval vessels to visit the city of Houston. The Witchita will follow us arriving about the 28th of April whereas we will arrive on the seventh and stay until the seven­teenth. Next Saturday night is to be a gay and festive one with a buffet supper at the Houston Club for the ship's officers and a dance at the City Auditorium for the enlisted men. Mrs. J. E. Jackson, head of the Navy Moth­ers, is sponsoring the dance at the City Auditorium. On Friday, April 14th the Grand Prize Brewery has had Mr. Holly M. Brook, president of the Junior Cham­ber of Commerce, make arrangements for a stag buffet supper for the en­listed men. On Easter Sunday Mr. Wilson, head of a special committee, will have transportation available for officers and men to go to the churches of their demoninations. Lieut. E. E. Keel', U. S. N. R., in charge of the theater committee, has made arrangements for enlisted men to be given free admission to all the theaters in the city. Again the City of Houston is going to be too kind to the ship which bears its name when Mrs. Elizabeth Holcombe Crosswell sponsor of the ship will present a gift: The Houston has had many gifts from the city in the past:- a piano the Xmas of 1936 for the crew, a ward­room piano presented by Mr. Morris in honor of his Mother, the silver service, and a full length oil portrait of General Sam Houston were among the most prominent. . According to the latest informa­tion there are still more plans to make our stay as fine as any yet. Hav­ing heard nothing but of the good times had on previous visits, the Houston officers and men are look­ing forward to the stay. .11 .. A Frenchman was relating his ex­perience of studying the Englsh lan­guage. He said: " When I first discovered that if I was quick, I was fast, that if I was tied, I was fast, if I spent too freely, I was fast and that not to eat was to fast, I was discouraged. But when I came across the sentence, ' The first one won one one dollar prize', I gave up trying to learn English."
