Moore pitched a very steady game the last thrce innings, and Mat­thews played a sp ukling game at shortstop, also getting a homerun and a sine'le out of fOUl' ttmes at bat.

The master was a man with a splendid rep:. ltati n both as a mar­iner and a gentleman, and his family was with him. The sh'p made a good passage at fir3t; early in Decembu t07/ vessels r<! corded in their logs that they had sighted her 300 miles off Gibralter. Then on December 5, the captain of a British brigantine that fell in with her noted that her course was queer and sent a boarding party over to see if she needed help. On deck all was silent. Not a liv­ing thing was in sight- nor a dead one. The visit:> rs called out, but got no response. Every soul aboard had simply disappeared. The ship was in perfect condition. The cargo was well stored and in good order. There was plenty of food and water aboard. The cash box was intact. In the forecastle were the seaman's chests and and clothng, dry and undsturbed. Some underclothes had been hung out to dry, in the mate's cabin was a piece of pzper with an unfinished SU: 11 on it. A child's dress was still in the sewing ;:-. achine, and there were four half­eaten breakl: asts on the table. The MARY CELESTE'S lifeboat hung on it's davits.

The Mary­bnd with 47 times at bat made but 7 hits, for a batting average of 170. The Maryland team play was better than that of the Houston, for the Maryland made good six of their sev­e! l hits while the Houston could nlake two of their eight hits good. Cox, the Mar~' land pitcher, struck out 12 Ramblers. On board, several discussions have r. risen about the proper word to paSI; . over the loudspeaker system. Just y: hat is the correct word for each item? In October of 1937, Ad­miral F. A. Todd wrote an art',.'''.:! in' the Institute Proceedings on the subject in question. In his articl<! 1' 3 compares the word passing to the command given to infantry or to a crew of oarsmen; i. e. " Forward, march" means one thing and one thing only', it is not to be confused with anything else; Toss, oars is i~ entical. In the same respect, the word p'issed should mean only one t: ling and have only one phraseo- logy. Some of these have stood the test of tiu'. e ' because they were short, to the point, and me'an one thing.
