Transcript Page FoUl' FIRS. T DIVISION ATHLETES In spite of the fact that all hands are kept busy with the many divis­ion responsibilities, certain of the mor8 hardy ones find it necessary to take up some form of athletics to keep down the waistline. There is Acuto, of the anchor detail, who gave the first enlistment raceboat crews workouts in Guantanamo Bay last fall. " Bull" Lawson pulled a good oar in the first enlistment raceboat. Other strong- back men were Bail', Burke, and Baker. Out in China, the division had a baseball team that won some unique trophies. In basketball, the division was well represented by Bail' Adams, and Davidson. Adams also plays with the baseball team. Bail' was coxswain of the first enlistment crew in the spring races. Folta and Turner are among the grunt and groan men. And last but not least, the First Division sends forth the challenge to any and all comers to a good fast game of pinochle ( pea­nuckle to you.) -- t. t­BOXING The Houston was represented in two bouts on the amateur card at the West Side Auditorium on Thursday night. C. R. ( Peewee) Phillips took an easy victory over Rodrigues, a Long Beach protege, in four rounds. The bout was in the 112 pound class. If there had been a few more rounds Peewee would probably have crashed through with a KO. In the 138 pound class, P. H. ( Red) Kendricks caught a hard one in the first round from Robelo, and although he weathered the rest of the round, the referee a­warded Robelo a technical KO in the second. The fight might have been dif­ferent had it not been fer that unfor­tunate swing in the first round. THE BLUE BONNET S. OME PERTINENT FACTS As related by Weigand, T. C. The ship went into commission at 3 p. m., June 17th, 1930 at Portsmouth Navy Yard. Lt. ( jg) Whitson was the Division Officer and Ens. Allen the Junior Division Officer of the First Division. Stransky, BM1c, was the first boat­swains mate of the division. As such, he stood the first boatswains mate watch in charge of the starboard watch. The First Division was the working division and has been on the job ever since. Stransky was relieved after about two months and Sahlstein, BM2c, ( who is now retired) took over. Sahlstein remained boatswains mate for some three years. During this time Mr. Whitson had been relieved by Lieut. Barret and Lieut. Barret was in turn relieved by Lt. ( jg) O'Donnel. Sahlstein was relieved by Balint, BM1c., ( who is now CBM and doing duty with the floating dry dock in San Diego) who remained boatswains mate for some eight or nine months. Nutson, Cox., took over the duties for a month or two and was relieved by McGovern, BM1c, the present in­cumbent. During this time, Mr. Leon, the present signal officer, had the division for a short time, and then turned it over to Mr. Allen, the first Junior Division Officer, Mr. Allen having become Lieut. ( jg) in the meantime. The present line up consists of Mc­Govern, as ll). entioned above, Stafford, BM2c., Snyder, Cox. Clymer is also coxswain in the division but he is at­tached to the C& R division. The lead­ing seamen on deck are Acuto, Pasko, and Kleugel. Edens is coxswain of the first motor launch. The first turret captain of number one turret was Shelton, TClc. Wei­gand, the present turret captain, was then a gunner's mate second class. Heathman was the gunners mate third class, and Coop the striker. Shelton turned over to R. Crawford, CTC. Crawford was the turret cap­tain when the first " E" on the Hou­ston was made off Tsingtao, China, during the gunnery year of 1931­1932. The first shot fired for record, after the test shots, was the Officers string number one turret in 1931. In the meantime, Weigand took over the USS Houston- 4- 20- 35- 800. NEW ADDITIONS TO THE FLEET five inch, double duty, rapid fire guns, for both anti- aircraft and destroyer repulse work. She made the 4200 mile run from Norfolk in fourteen days, including a two day stop at Panama and yet " we just loafed along" ac­cording to Captain Arthur L. Bris­tol, her commanding officer. The Ranger was accompanied from the East Coast by the new 10,000 ton cruiser Tuscaloosa, and the new destroyer Dewey. The Tuscaloosa is now here in Long Beach, and has b" oken the flag of Rellr Admiral Fairfield, and assumed the duties of Commander Cruiser Division Seven. The Astoria is the other present mem­ber of CruDivSeven. The cruisers Minneapolis and New Orleans have arrived from the East Coast in the past few days, the former joined Division Seven and the New Orleans to become a unit of Division Six. Expected in the near future is the Farragut, the Dewey's sister ship. The Ranger will be joined, in the sum­mer of 1937, by two even greater carriers, the 20,000 ton Yorktown and Enterprise. -- kt-- THE FIRST DIVISION MAKES ITS BOW to the bonds of matrimony and only three of the men have fallen. For the whole division, that makes a 7.32 percentage of married men. We won­der if any of the other divisions can boast as low a percentage. --* 0*- ­NORFOLK NAVY YARD under five different flags: British, Colonial Virginia, State of Virginia, Confederate States and the U. S. In addition to being one of the fore­most Navy Yards of the country, it has for several years turned out all the requirements of the Navy for paints, gas engines, metal furniture turbine blades, and special gases. ' job as turret captain, having made first class. Coop, the striker, became gunners mate third class. The present line- up consists of Weigand, mention­ed above, Scariano, GM2c, Brown, GM3c, Hodges, senior striker and Calder, the assistant to the senior striker.
