Transcript j, A--~~" . -- -----------....... ~--) U~ S~. S~ HOUSTON Volume 2 Number 6 Bremerton, Washington 22 September 1939 CAMP WESLEY HARRIS EXCELLS AMONG MARINE RANGES B: mnen Describes Outdoor Life For each of six weeks, a detail of 11 men has been going to Camp Wes­ley Harris for firing, returning at the end of six days. The entire Marine Detachment has fired on the range. 2nd Lt. D. C. Pollock represented the HOUSTON during the entire period, ~ nd at other times Lt.( jg) H. von A. Burkart and Ens. T. R. Ingham have been asigned to duty in that connec­tion. But how many of the rest of us have any idea of just what life on the range is like. W. J. Bannen, Associate Editor of the Blue Bonnet was one of those who were detailed to the Camp for the whole time. This is his descrip­tion of what most of us know only as " the Rifle Range." Situated approximately eight miles from Charleston Gate, Puget Sound Navy Yard on the road to Seabeck, on the Hood Canal, Camp Wesley Harris is the Marine Rifle Range. Accomodations are available for more than one hundred fifty men, living in tents and in the healthiest atmosphere in the Northwest. All about the camp are forests of pine, spruce and other evergreens. This is the home of the white- tail deer. The range itself is located in a small cou­lee or draw, firing against a steep bank at one end from two, three, five and six hundred yard points. The green background outlines the tar­gets in a manner that causes many of the experienced personnel to say it is the best range operated by the Mar- ( Continued on Page 2) Captain Cogswell Passes Distinguished Career Ended When Captain Cogswell's thirty six years of service were ended last' week, the HOUSTON lost not only her Captain, but probably the best liked officer in the ship. Deep regret at his passing is felt by every officer and man aboard. Captain Cogswell's long career was already distinguished, although in large ships it had probably just begun. He carne from a family of the strongest Navy background; his father served as the Executive Offcer of the U. S. S. Oregon on her trip around the Horn in 1898... He himself entered the Naval Academy in 1903. Graduated in 1908, seven­teen months found him on the Asi­atic Station. And in 1910, less than two years out of the Naval Acad­emy, he was Executive Officer of the torpedo boat destroyer DE­CATUR. By the time he had left China for duty in the Atlantic Fleet in 1913, command of the DE­CATUR had been entered in his record. His first shore duty in 1915 was an interesting assign­ment: censor at the Naval Radio Station, Sayville, Long I land. From then until 1923 he saw ser­vice on six different destroyers, among them the famous wartime FAN ING. About 1925 he began two years of duty as avigator of the TEN­( Continued on Page 2) " B" DIVISION WINS SOFTBALL'TOURNAME T Climaxing the thrilling interdivi­sional series of softball the B division became the ship champions last week when they defeated the 1st division by the narrow margin of 13- 11. The entire division was given the long awaited " blowout" party on Wednes­day. The party was promised to the winner of the final series. By w; n­ning ten games without a single de­feat, they clearly showed their su­periority over the other teams. With a · fine f: elding team behind him Ray Rennert, as sweet a softball pitcher as the Houston has ever had, hurled all ten victories for the team. Some flashy fielding by Chase, short center fieLler, good defensive infield work by Hartley Dalton and Strange were big factors in the team's winning ways. Members of the B division team: Pitcher, Rennert; catcher, Byrd; 1st base, Strange; 2nd base, Clarks­ton; 3rd base, Dalton; s. s., Hardy; s. center field, Chase; left field, Kos­ter; c. field, Stokes; r. f., Hasty. • 1-. RECRUITS A D TRANSFERS ARRIVE Two large groups of men recently arrived aboard the " Rambler Ship," one a draft of recruits and the other made up of men who have previously served on other stations. On 26 Aug­ust, 17 recruits were received aboard from the Great Lakes Naval Train­ing Station. Last Tuesday, 19 Sept., 20 men arrived in the USS KANAWA, most of them coming from the USS RELIEF, the USS UTAH, and from the China Station.
