Transcript Tennis Fans Urge Enlisted Men's Team Total 775 ( Continued from Page 1.) won a beautiful cup for his hard, last game of tennis. In the years of 1936, 1937 and 1938, he was winner in the singles and doubles of the Army and Navy Tennis meet in the Canal Zone. For this he received a total of six cups. In 1938 he won the 4th of July tournament, covering the A t I ant ic side ( including civilians). Curley ran­ked fifth in 1936, fifth in 1937 and fourth in 1938 in the Isthmus stan­ding. Many men who do not go out for baseball or other sports would yet make good tennis players. The average Navy man in the Navy is healthy and full of vigor. In tennis, you have the chance of a lifetime to display that; and the exercise '~ hat you derive from the sport would more than satisfy you towards keeping yourself in condition. There is no game in the world of sports that can compare with it for accuracy and speed and general all around exercise. Once you're past the beginners stage, it's really a he- man game that you'll enjoy. The best part of it is that it doesn't require much gear and can be played by two to four men. Lt. M. A. Norcross has been de­signated as Tennis Officer and will be more than pleased to help organize an Enlisted Men's Tennis Team. The HOUSTON is well represented in all other sports that she is capable of participating in. So a good tennis team is all that is needed for a full quota. - E. C. Simmons USS Houston-- 8- 7- 3! l- 1M compete in November and December. Officers take note. Total possible number of points for first place in each sport is given in the following table: Baseball 75 Basketball 65 Boxing 50 Wrestling 50 Rowing 225 Sailing 80 Rifle 75 Pistol 45 Officer's Pistol 30 Swimming 40 Officer's Golf 20 Officer's Tennis 20 1 fathom 1 cable length 1 mile 1 statute mile 1 nautical mile 1 marine league THE BLUEBdNNE That, according to the " Mariner's Measure": 6 feet 120 fathoms 11h cable lenghts 5280 feet 6:> 80 feet 3 marine miles That Port Angeles, Washington, s~: ll'es with Washington, D. C. the dis­t'nction of being a " national city". It was reserved as such in 1863 under the personal direction of President Abraham Lincoln. That Port Townsend was planned and laid out about 1889 as a city of 30,000. It's present poptllation is ap­proximately 4,000. That the principal sources of the la 19uage of the sea are generally conceded to be the Teutonic and the Greek tongues- while the Aryan is also recognized as an important source. That the first large floating dry dock of the Navy was the " Dewey", now Orlangapo, Philippine Islands. The dock was towed there from Chesapeake Bay, a distance of 13,000 miles, the passage taking 150 days. That the. term " Court Martial" comes to us from the " Curia Mili­taris" or " Court of Chivalry", also called the " Marshall's Court". and ASTORIA here in Bremerton, then the NEW ORLEANS at Mare Island. If sucessful in that we are 2. ssured of at least fifth place in the cruiser competition, and the oppor­tunity to win first place by defeating winr. ers of other cruiser groups later. Baseball can count for a p03sible total of 75 points, and is well worth a good try. In that connection, all HOUSTO men are reminded that the team is by no means complete yet, nor decided upon- and if anyone is interested e­nough for a try at the game- see Chief Moore, coach, and come out and give the HOUSTON a boost. Swimming, too, will be underway soon, and it behooves any talent in that sport to start grooming for the competition that will take place in October and November. Officer's Golf and.

One is known as the Selected Crew. and may be composed of any enlisted men aboard. The Selected Crew races about 20 November, and points will be awarded for the first five places, 50 points going to first place. The second group is the First Enlistment Crew, restricted to men who have served less than four of their first enlistment. This crew races about i ovember, places and points being awarJed in the same manner. The third group is the Marine Crew, com­p:> sed of any enlisted Marines. They likewise race about 1 November, a~ d can account for 50 points, or anyone of five places. In addition, in each of these groups, there are inter- cruiser­group races, furnishing three pla'.:: es ap: ece, each first taking 25 more points. At the same time, it is also wor­thy of note that the MINNEAPOLIS lecently retained the Battenberg Cup in a challenge race aganst the H. M. S. ORION, U. S. S. WEST VIRGINIA, and U. S. S. SALT LAKE CITY. A major change in this year's rules, splits cruisers into two groups. Croup " A" is composed of heavy cruisers, and includes the HOUSTO . Group " B" is composed of 10,000- ton light cruisers, plus the repair group: VESTAL, MEDUSA, UTAH, AR­GO E, and RELIEF. This means that the HOUSTON will compete a­gainst cruisers strictly of her class. Of immediate interest is Base­ball. The HOUSTO begins her com­petitive series about 10 August, and must d(' feat both the MINNEAPOLIS The schedule of games in the forthcoming baseball series has been announced as follows: 4--------- Here's Your Baseball Schedule! ~- ~ ; 12 Aug. 16 Aug. 19 Aug. 23 Aug. 26 Aug. 30 Aug. 2 Sept. 6 Sept. 9 Sept.
