Transcript Kayes Boxing Page Four ATHLETES LEAVE SHIP Quite a few of the HOUSTON old­timers have left the ship in the past months and among those, the athletic teams have suffered. Lou Parker has gone and it ~ ll be remembered that Lou was the first one to bring a Heavyweight belt to this ship, that of the U. S. Asiatic Fleet.. Abie Kall, of the aviation gang, was the man who brought the Backstroke champ­ionship to this ship, taking it from one of the old China hands. Donald­son was a member of the basket- ball team and whaleboat crew for three years running. It is regretful that we must lose these men, but we wish them all the luck in their new assign­ments, both on the outside and in. SCRIMMAGE WITH WEEVEE The basket- ball team showed a little of the hoped for form the other day when scrimmageing the WEST VIRGINIA quintet for a fifteen or twenty minute go. The score stood 16- 4 at the end in favor of the Blue. Much improvement is still needed, but it shows that the work is going well and a good' team can be expected when the competition starts. It is well to know that the W. V. has al­ways had a team better than fair, and they have had a little more time of the floor than. w.. e. have had. ORIGION OF BASEBALL • The Devil was the first coach. He coached Eve when she stole first and Adam stole second. When Isaac met Rebe. cca at the well, she slew the Philistines and Moses made his first run when he slew the Egyptians. Cain made a base hit when he slew Abel: but Abraham made a sacrifice. The prodical son made a home run. David was a long distance thrower, and Moses shut out the Egyptains at the Red Sea. The game was called when the flood came on account of wet grounds. -.', ... FLASH M. A. A.' s take arms. vs. Welbourn Wrestling The Last Round- up Kellums _........... Referee Hartman __ Timekeeper PORTLA D SMOKER THE BLUE BONNET RACE BOAT CREWS A few things like gunnery and op­erating outside have upset the daily workouts of the race boat crews this past week. Gunnery Sgt. Washe re­ports a good crew. As a matter of fact it'seems that these Marines know their oars. Acuto, of the anchor rl~ ­tail of the 1st Division, and coxswam of the Frst Enlistment crew reports a light crew but a willing ? ne. ~ e­mental, coxswain of the ThIrd DIV. has taken over the selected crew. He reports a husky bunch of oarsmen. The races come off next Sll- tur~ ay. A large turnout is expected. InCIdently some of you who have been " beef'mg' , about the crews and getting away with it should come out and let the coxswains give y. o.. u.. a. work- out. HOUSTON NINE BOWS TO INDIA1iAPOLIS Showing much improvement but still lacking in some of the finer de­tails of the game, the HOUSTON team played the outfit from the IN­DIANAPOLIS and came out on the short end of an 8 to 2 score. The game was close until the first part of the nineth frame when a bad break on the part of the HOUSTONITES al­lowed 3 runs to cross the plate on top of the two already in. The HOUS­TON team on the whole played some bang u'p ball, but due to a few costly mistakes were unable to take over the gam~. Eggerter starred. with ~ is good baseball judgment. MIller PIt­ched a good game, but lacked back­ing in the pinches. Lucas, Davis and West showed good form and look to be big helps in games to come. ., t1 • SMOKERS "\ vith our shipmates in CruDiv 6. Let's give them a big hand, welcome them as part of our own gang. Talk things over with them and make them feel this ship is as good as their own­make them feel at home, that the HOUSTON knows how to entertain and how to treat its guests. That is the only way to make it a 100% suc­cess. Commander Scouting Force has accepted the invitation to be present, and to him also we want to show that the HOUSTON is as active a member of the force as any other. All togeth­er for a perfect turnout and a good time. LET'S GO!! USS Hou~ ton- 10- 13- 34- 800 STOKERS NOTES Another week gone by and A. A. firing over, now we are coming to the time when we will start for the West- Coast and good old San Pedro. Of course some more maneuvers go­ing there but that won't last long and in no time the , boys will be kick­ing the gong around. Lutz, WT1c., was transferred to the ARGONNE for temporary duty in connection with oil barge duty. Mr. Bly left us for duty with the Camera Party. Now fella's, we are falling dOW' 1 on that score, try and be more consid­erate when using water as that is our big failing at the present time. So the rest of the month watch the use of water so that we will not f", ll down from our first place in the Scouting Force. It is drawing close to the end of the month and no doubt there will be some rates coming out. Now, get those courses in so that we can have a few more rated men on here. Mr. Duff handles the courses for the En­gineers Force and will be only too glad to help anyone along toward3 getting a course completed. Well, will have to leave for this week and hope to return next week with the w<> rd of a better Enginee~' ­ing Score. Let's . p. u. l. l.. together. THE GUNNERS GANG This' past week saw the Fourth and Fifth Divisions complete AntiAir­craft practice Tare. It seems that the Marines put one over on the 4th Division and made the best score. Next week sees the same bunch working over the targets with th~ machine guns. They fire both on the range and on board. The Fourth Div. is determined to be " First" this time. Weigand, Turret Captain of th~ fighting First, reports that the load­ing crew is in fine fettle. He al30 says that he can put Iiis guns, loan. ed of course, on the target before anyone else can. How about that in the Sec­ond- and Third Divisions? Coop, GM3c., of the First Division and Wilson, GM2c., of the Second Dh ision were transferred to the Receiv­ing Ship, Hampton Roads, Va., Jast week. We wish them luck in thei~' new assignments. .....
