Transcript Volume 3, Number 4 Pearl Harbor, T. H. March 27, 1940 Joe Lewdanski ( Continued on Page 3) Wardroom Officers Give Party Wins In Four Bouts For Title The Wardrom Officers and their ladies gathered Friday evening, 15 March, at the Pavillion Club, Fort Lewdanski Wins Territorial Amateur Heavyweight Crown For experience and to help make a good card better, Joe Lewdanski entered the Territ" ory of Hawaii AAU Amateur ring in Honolulu as heavyweight. Joe fought four bouts to win, coming out as Amateur Heavyweight Champion of Hawaii. A summary of his work is interesting. The first fight was against Payne Meatoga, a rough, tough, able boxer, who has been Territorial Champ for the past two seasons. Ski went out to rough him up, found he had a man who was really tough, and in the pro­cess of learning lost that first round. The two following rounds Joe out box­ed his man to win a good clean fight. Lewdanski weighed in at 179 pounds, Meatoga at 207. This gave the Oahu lad an advantage of 28 pounds. The second bout, due to cutting workouts and roadwork in half, found our Joe weighing in at 192, the best weight he has achieved. This was two weeks later than the first and he again met Meatoga to fight him in a completely different style. The first two rounds were won by hard fighting, the last round was very close. Again Meatoga showed he could take it. The third fight brought up a new opponent, Pray of Hawaii. The lad from the Big Isle weighed in at 217, Joe at 189. Pray was a big, tough boy, who did plenty of fighting as long as he lasted, a total of one minute fifteen seconds. Because he had been Territorial Champ for two seasons, Payne Mea­toga was given another and final fight ( Continued on Page 4) Following the hit performance of the HawDet Variety show, a few weeks ago, the entertainment talent of the Detachment has now been mobilized and organized in prepara­tion for the forthcoming visit of the California- based units of the Fleet. A brand- new revue, bigger and better than ever, is in · rehearsal right now, featuring clever performers from the USS Dobbin and all the cruisers of the Detachment. With both Segars and Kelly, those two mainstay stars from the " Big H" the first perfor- ( Continued on Page 3) HawDet and Fleet to See New Variety Shows Houston Leads Engineering But Score Drops For the entire year the Houston has been leading the Hawaiian De­tachment in engineering competition. This past quarter the score has suffer­ed a drop of several points. One of the contributing factors in this drop is the excessive fresh water consump­tion. Engineering scores are not estab­lished by the engineering department alone. A high score indicates the con­tinued whole- hearted cooperation of all hands. Two ways in which every man can cooperate are to watch the water consumption and use of elect­ricity. As to water- use all you need but let's stop the waste. Report all leaks to the First Lieut. and take a second to cut off water which is obviously being wasted. By turning out unnecessary lights each man can help raise the score. Remember-" When not in use- turn off the juice."
