Transcript Volumn 2 umber 9 * U. 5.5. BOUSTOB1( Pearl Harbor, T. H. 30 December, 1939. HAPPY NEW YEAR By E. C. Simmons The old man sat in his favorite rocker, smoking his pipe and reading the even­ing paper. It was his hour of rest, his day of work finished, and tomorrow was ( Continued on Page Two) COMSCOFOR HOISTS THREE STAR FLAG IN HOUSTON On Monday, 18 December, Vice Admiral Adolphus Andrews, Com­mander Hawaiian Detachment as well as Commander Scouting Force, trans­ferred his flag from the carrier " Enterprise" to the " Houston." With Admiral Andrews, there came to the ship a staff of twenty officers and flag allowance of one hundred and seventeen men. Included in the flag allowance are 31 seamen, 9 yeo­men, a band of 21, 20 radiomen, 4 aerographers, 4 printers, and numer­ous other rates that easily fill the large total. The " Houston" will probably serve as flagship of the Hawaiian Detach­ment for two months, until relieved by the " Indianapolis" when she has completed her Navy Yard overhaul at Mare Island. Admiral Andrews is no stranger to the " Houston", having spent two weeks aboard with his staff, during the visit to Houston, Texas, last April. His band is in the Houston for the fifth time. HOUSTON FEASTS AT LUAU Emphasizing the " Mele" in " Mele Kalikimaka", Houston sailors rallied last night for the ancient Hawaiian feast of the Luau. Under rain instead of moonlight, drinking beer instead of okolehao, they nonetheless ate and drank in a Polyne­sian setting, seemingly far from Hono­lulu. Midst grass shacks by the light of torches, young girls were seen mak­ing hula skirts. On another side a Hawaiian boy was pounding poi. A whole pig filled with red hot stones and wrapped in ti leaves was roasted Hawaiian emu style. While pretty native girls sang and enter­tained them, the stag" party sat down to tables covered with leaves and strewn with flowers. Fish and poi were only one dish served. Finally, under tall swaying palms, attractive Hawaiian girls swayed to the rythms of the Hula. Their dances ranged from the modern hulas with the music of steel guitars back to those of old Hawaii, performed to the rythm of drums and chants. BASKETBALL STARTS STRONG WITH BEST TEAM OF YEARS The Rambler basketball team took a flying start toward leading the cruiser competition again this year when they won from the Salt Lake City and the Astoria this week, drop­ping a third game to the New Orleans by a narrow m: ugin. Qualified ex­perts pronounce this present squad of fast passers and ball handlers possibly the best the Houston has ever produced and undoubtedly a topnotcher among the teams of the Hawaiian Detachment. Of these first three competition cames of the season, the Houston won her opener from the Salt Lake City last Saturday, by a score of 46 to 27. Brilliant passing and good teamwork in working the ball in close character­ized the playing of the whole team. Hagerstrom and McFadden led in s30ring, although scores were pretty evenly divided among all the players. LaBarge, seemingly all over the court, played the stellar role in defense. Sunday's game with the ew Orleans proved to be the hardest of all the games, official and unofficial, this year. Possibly a little worn by a fast contest the day before, the Houston boys missed their snappy ball handling of the first game. On the final horn they were trailing the New Orleans 34 to 38. Wednesday, against the Astoria, the gang came from behind in a thrilling stretch drive to win by 41 to 35. At the half a much bewildered Houston outfit was on the wrong end of a score ( Continued on Page 4)
