Transcript ...... Bremerton, Washington I TER- DIVISIO SOFT- BALL LEAG E 31 August 1939 RIFLE MATCH At the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club rifle match at Camp W sley Harris August 27, the HOUSTON was represented by Platoon- Sergeant John­stone, Cpl. Bihm and Pic. Manning. Apparently having an off day our star hope, Johntone, came in with a score of ninety on the offhand firing, which should have been cIo er to the possible score of one- hundred. With a more or les bad start he finished with the score of 222, possible being 250. Bihm and Manning tied at 219, and though the boys were not in the money they were far from the bottom of the list. The match was won by First Ser­geant Kelly, USMC, of the USS Min­neapolis, score 239; second place west to Pfc. Butcher, Marine Barracks; third place to Pfc. Tryon, Marine Bar­racks, who also won the High Tyro; and the last place went to Pfc. Mc­Clure, Marine Barracks. The awards were The George E. Miller, Sr. Tro­phy for one year and two silver medals to first place, one medal as winner of the trophy from the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club, and the 2nd medal given by George E. Miller, Jr. son of the donor of the trophy; the latter is a Memorium Medal. Bronze medals were awarded to 2nd, 3rd and High Tyro. A small monetary award wa also given. The George E. Miller, Sr., Tro­phy was given to the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club in 1928 by Mr. Miller, now deceased, who was then President of the Bremerton Trust and Savings Bank, Bremerton. Until his demise and for more than forty years George Miller, Sr., was a prominent figure in the development of Kitsap County. The match was run at Camp Wes­( Continued on Page 2) APPEAL FOR F DS The American Red Cross and the Navy Relief Society, having completed another busy year in alleviating dis­tress and having frequently assisted naval personnel, are making their an­nual appeal for funds. The good use to which the funds are put is a mat­ter of daily record in the nation's newspapers and needs no furthur com­ment. CinCUS Fleet has designated the month of September for collecting funds on all ships in the Fleet. Div. Officers will receive contributions com­mencing Friday, 1 September. As a guide in making contribu­tions, it is believed that everyone should give approximately one ( 1) per cent of his mO' 1th's paY, chi a­mount being based on the suggestio' 1 of CinCUS Fleet. When it is consid­ered that the contribution is for a whole year and for both organizations, surely one per cent of one month's pay is not too much. It will go a long way in tiding somebody over sickness, flood, earthquake and other disaster. League I League II Div. Won Lost Pet. Div. Won Lost Pet.

Volume 2 Number 5 OH, FOR A ROOTI G PARTY Di I you see the ball game last Saturday, HOUSTON vs ASTORIA? I'll answer that question for you. NO! But here is a question for you to an­swer. Why didn't you see the game? Could it be that it's too far for you to walk? Maybe it's because there are not enough pretty girls attending the games, therefor there is nothing to draw the handsome sailor to the game. Probably the best reason is, they don't serve beer at the ball games. When you enlisted in the Navy, you gained a lot of shipmates, but the men on the HOUSTON are your closest shipmates. The ship is the same as your school in your school c.: ays, when your school had a game, regardless whether it was baseball, football basketball, or track, if you weren't participating in the game, you probably were backing them to the fullest extent in the rooting se:.: ­t: on. So, why don't you root for your ship's team? Ye , they lost with a score of 7 to 6. They didn't lose because the ASTORIA had a better ball team. They lost because the ASTORIA had a large rooting party attending the game. Did you ever stop to think that a large group of people booing and yelling at you will cause you to become nervous. That is what hap­pened to the HOUSTO players Sat­urday. Up to the seventh inning, they were playing a magnificent ball game with heads- up ball playing by each player and the brilliant pitching of DI GLE, CMM. They were in the lead 6 - to 2. In the last of the seventh inning the rooting party of the AST­ORIA took it upon themselves to win
