Transcript Page Four THE BLUE BONNET USS Houston- 4- 6- 35- 800. BASEBALL DEPARTING SHIPMATES WAR GAME CRITICS ANSWERED On Monday, 1 April, the team jour­neyed to Navy Field for a heartbreak­ing tussel with the well organized Salt Lake City outfit, and the boys set out from the start to take the Gull's scalp, with Johnson doing the twirling. Things looked fine for us until the fourth when Johnson had to leave the game with a badly wrenched arm caused from trying to bear down a little too hard on one of the SLC's heavy stickers, and with no relief moundsman available, the results of what looked to be one in the bag for us were only too obvious. Final score: Houston 3 runs, 5 hits. Salt Lake City: 17 runs, 14 hits. --* 0*-- Send the BLUE BONNET home. ( 1) The Homeward- bound pennant is flown by men- o- war returning to the home land after a year or more of foreign service. The length is determined by con­structing it as many feet long as there are members in the crew, and one star for each officer. ( 2) Supply ships are called Beef Boats; ships in the Special Service Squadron are called Banana Boats; while submarines are called Pig Boats. ( 3) The hospital ship, USS Mercy, a noncombatant ship, carried more guns than any ship in the Navy, but they were obsolete and were used for ballast. ( 4) There are 11 departments and offices in the Navy Department: Office of Naval Operations. Office of Judge Advocate General. Bureau of Navigation. Bureau of Ordinance. Bureau of Engineering. Bureau of Construction and Repair. Bureau of Yards and Docks. Bureau of Supplies and Accounts. Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. Bureau of Aeronautics. Headquarters Marine Corps. ( 5) In the old Navy, the MAA stowed all loose clothing and personal gear in a large canvas bag and once a month the bag was brought to the mainmast where the owners of all articles in the bag were returned their property along with a few rashes for being so careless. The term " lucky" was the sailors humorous way of re­ferring to this unfortunate occurence for the guilty.

Germany's " pocket" battleships will operate in the Baltic with other types of war vessels. Russia's new fleet will exercise this summer in the Gulf of Finland. In July, Italy will stage the most elaborate naval exercise in her modern history in the Eastern Mediterranean France will send her First and Sec­ond Squadrons, with supporting flo­tillas and l\ ircraft through maneuv­ers in the Mediterranean and Atlantic in the spring. Japan's newly organized united fleet will t~ ke to Asiatic waters during July and August for exercises plann­ed, it is believed, to extend as far as the mandated Marshall Islands. It will mark the first time that the Jap­anese have sent their fleet so far to the Southeastward. --* 0*- ­CHIEF ( PA) H R o 0 2 1 1 1 1 1 o 1 1 3 2 1 2 3 1 0 H R o 1 1 0 1 1 o 2 o 0 o 0 o 0 1 0 o 0 1 0 AB 4 4 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 1 AB 5 5 5 5 5 5 4 4 4 On March 29, at Navy Field, Long Beach, the Houston ball tossers cross­ed bats with the Chicago, and this was a good game throughout with Hines taking the mound for us al­though it was his first day out this season. In the 7th, with the score standing 5- 4 Chicago, the lack of con­dition told on Hines and he weakened. Spruell, the catcher, relieved him as there were no more pitchers. Sgt. Ross went in and caught, doing a fine job and proving that old age has nothing to do with good ballplaying. Slough played a bang up game in the field, poling out a home run in the 3rd.
