Transcript Volume 3, Number 3 Lahaina Roads, Maui, T. H. February 27, 1940 SALUTE TO A WARRIOR HOUSTON AND NEW ORLEANS STAR Gregorio Aligo, 1940 welterweight champion of the Fourth Cruiser Divi­sion, went out in a blaze of glory when Capelli, that super- puncher from the ASTORIA, found the nerve center on that brave old chin. He has at last agreed to " hang ' em up." In doing so he ends a career of more than a dozen years in active Navy competi­t: on. For three of those seasons he has been with our own squad. A short summary of those seasons will help us to realize what is the attitude of a real sport and fighter. Two years ago, already thirty years old, but by far the best welterweight on the squad, he represented the ship in that weight at our official smokers. That year Scouting Force Champions were selected in gym­nasium workouts, which started be­fore our own official meets were com­pleted. Gregorio, after eliminating such opponents as Maury Sieuw and Capelli, whom he beat badly in two workouts, was caught by a dark horse, " Fighter" Hodges of the NORTHAMPTON. Hodges, at that time an unknown fighter, gave our own Major Hodge his best fight on the way to the 1939 Welterweight Championship. The following year Major Hodge, who had been light- ( Continued on PaKe 4) COMHAWDET TRANSFERS FLAG On Friday, 17 February, the IN­DIANAPOLIS came alongside prep­aratory to assuming her regular duty as flagship of Vice Admiral Adolphus Andrews, Commander Hawaiian De­tachment.

RECORD NUMBER OF MEN ADVANCE TO ' iIIGHER RATE Something of a record in the num­ber of men to , be advanced in rating was established in the HOUSTON last week. , The shipmates, all of whom we're glad to see advanced, have been busy p: lsging out the cigars. Here's the" whole list of 99 men who climbed another rung of the ladder on 16 Feb­ruary, including those of the Flag Al­lowance. Congrats to each and all! NAME TO NAME '.. TO Clymer, S. H.

Tops for the whole evening was probably that swinging " Wind­jammer" gang from the NEW OR­LEANS. With a hot trumpet, fiddle, and guitar and three of the best voices of the entire show, they made the audience howl for more, from the arm­chairs on the docl" the wings of the signal bridges I lAs master of Ceremonies for all eshow, our own " Bob Burns" Segars didn't take a back seat to anybody; and whether the acts went fast or Jllow, the aud­ience could count on .

Many a boatswain's mate and may­be a few flute players could have con­fessed to honest envy when the star second class from the destroyer ten­der soloed ' with the DOBBIN " Salt Shakers" on a mighty musical boat­swain's pipe. And not only one Boat­swain's pipe-- we remember partic­ularly a fine two- part arrangement of the Beer Barrel Polka, played' on calls held in each of his two hands. Ray Kelly, Seale, and L'Angelle, PFC, both put the HOUSTON in the headlines with songs whose applause ranked them with the best of the evening. The only whistler on the program was Ingram, Seale, another one of the signal gang of the Big " H". His was the kind of whistling that made us ( Continued on Page 3)
