The SALT LAKE CITY took second place with 33 points, followed by the CHESTER with 14, the CHIQAGO with 7 and the LOUISVILLE O. ~ lthough no re­~ ords were broken, several good times were turned in. The first, race of the day, 160 yard relay ( each man swim­ming 40 yards) was an easy victory for the VESTAL ( 1: 25: 06). The SALT LAKE CITY and CHESTER finished second and trird respectively. The next race was the 440 free style which was run off in two heats. The filial winners being determined by times.

Reverberations from this hulk have given the intimation that another ship's dance is in the OTocess of its making. The last venture, while mos' of you were on leave, was a success and the Entertainment Committee i~ perfecting the machinery for another. The date is tentatively set for 16 March, to be held someplace in Long Beach, preferably the Masonic llall. To defray expenses, it will be neces­sary to call on the crew for assis­. tance. Store profits amount to about $ 150 per month out of which athletic equipment, messmen's cigarettes, etc., must be paid. It has been suggested that each man attending, pay fifty cents for his ticket, the cost over and above the amount thus taken in will be paid by the Ship's Service Store. If the cost of the dance can be handl­ed at a lower price per man, appro­priate reductions will be made. It is hoped the ship's orchestra will be able to furnish the music, and surely your feet will need no finer incentive than that. Last time the attendance was around 200. This time with every one here it should be larger. The Division Representatives' are open to suggestions and will lend a willing ear. Let us all get together on this and make it such a success that the last will be eclipsed. We have the makings in our ship, the will in our crew, and the ability in our Enter tainment Committee, and six weeks to get ready for it. This issue has been delayed by the press of priority work in the print shop.
