Transcript Volume 3 Number 2 Pearl Harbor, T. H. February, 3 1940 HOUSTON IN SMOKER TONIGHT CAGERS TRIP MORMONS Houston Enters Basketball Semi- Finals NINE RAMBLERS TO FIGHT FOR CRUHAWDET LAURELS ( Continued on Page 4) GENERAL HERRO VISITS HOUSTON During the past week of tactics, the Houston played host to two un­official observers from the sister branch of the service; Major Gen­eral Charles D. Herron, Commanding General of the Hawaiian Department; and his Aide de Camp, First Lieuten­ant John T. Honeycutt. The Houston may well feel proud of the honor of the courtesy visit, and add General Herron's name to the roster of distinguished guests. It is interesting to note that, under the entire Hawaiian Military estab­lishment which General Herron com­mands, is included the largest post in the United States Army - Fort Scho­field, consisting of some nine hundred officers and twenty- two thousand men - and, incidentally, that the sec­ond largest Post in the Army is at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. At the boxing and wrestling smoker with CruDiv Six tonight, to select Cruisers, Hawaiian Detachment, Champions, the HOUSTON will furnish nine out of fifteen contenders. Winners of these semi- final bouts " vill, at a later date, meet the Champions of Destroyers, Hawaiian Detachment, to vie for top crowns of the entire Hawaiian Detachment. On the wrestling mat, the HOUSTON pins her hopes on Chick, F1c - in the 126 lb. class - All- avy bantamweight champion three successive years; Arthur, GM2c - 145 lb. class - last years group champion; and Juul, BM2c ­165 lbs. wTestling again under HOUSTON colors after a three- year absence. In the ring, HOUSTON boxers represent CruDiv Four in every weight but one. Starting with the bantam­weight class, " Mac" McPherson, a first- year lad with the finesse of a vet­eran, will seek to cop his first heavy­cruiser title. Either " Blackie" Strick­land or Henry Holton, each of the HOUSTON, will fight in the feather­weight class. With little to choose from between them, the boxing coach could toss a coin and be sure of pick­ing a winner, whether heads or tails. Aligo, veteran of many years of campaigning, will fight in the welter­weight class, determined to bring a­nother crown to the HOUSTO . Rep­resenting the middleweights " Bud" Adams - baseballer, basketballer, boxer - last years division champ in the same class - will be punching for a heavy- cruiser title likewise. In the 175 lb. class the other " Blackie" ­Hartwick, winner of the group title by three straight KO's - will throw leather for a fourth successive win by the same route. Joe Lewdanski, the ( Continued on Page 3) LONG DISTA CE " MELE KALIKIMAKA" Though the Houston was far from home at Christmas this year, the ship's own private Santa Claus op­erated by remote control. Just be­fore the holidays, $ 450 was distributed Sunday, January 28th, Captain " Snoz" Hattemer led his team to a brilliant victory over a Snappy Salt Lake City team which didn't stop scrapping until the final whistle. The good news was to the tune of 43- 35. LaBarge and McFadden paced the Houston cagers offense with 18 and 10 points respectively, with Hattemer and Hagerstrom garnering six points each, and " Bud" Adams making the final contribution of 3 points. Defensively, the whole group star­red and held the flashy forward Mer­rimear, and pivot man, Hamm, of the Salt Lake to 10 points each. Today, our team meets the New Or­leans at the Air Station Gym at 1500 for the Cruiser Championship in the final game. We have an even chance, and excellent squad, and the will to win, so lets see lots of rooters behind them at the Gym. There will be a special boat run for the rooting party. Come one, come all, and let the team know you are behind them.
