EGO " V" DIVISIO SA Tuesday afternoon the basketball team had their first real opportunity to show the results of the past few weeks practice. A regular game was played with the U. S. S. Concord, and the HOUSTON came out on the win­ning end of a 37- 31 score. The game was a good, fast and hard one, as evidenced by several minor cuts and bruises. Wilmuth suffered a cut eye­brow, which will probably keep him out of scrimmage for about a week Considering the fact that the Concord won 36 consecutive games last year while in the Bremerton Navy yard, and that they still have seven of that team with them, our basketball artists can rightfully be proud of the victory. There were no outstanding indivi­dual stars, everyone playing together well. Men that saw action were: Will­muth, Ellwood, Kennedy. O'Brien, Jones, Stipetic, Williamson, Brown, and Mustain. With two new recruits from the Marines, the outlook for a winning season are extremely good. Cooperation from the ship's company will do a lot towards making the HOUSTON proud of the basketball team. In the games to come lets see ;; ome fans on the sidelines. PERSONNEL ...... ...... Word has been received that on 21 August, Lieutenant . Alfred J. Ho­mann, U. S. Navy, assumed comman of the Naval Recruiting Station, De­troit, Michigan. He relieved Lieut. Comdr. Joseph E. Malcomson, Medical Corps, U. S. Navy, who will remain at the Station as Medical Officer. Lieutenant Homan will be remem­bered by the HOUSTO personnel for his service in capacity of Assist­tant First Lieutenant until recently relieved by Lieutenant Vanzant. Since graduating from the Naval Academy in 1922, he has had a varied and in­teresting Naval career, having served three years on the China Station, five years in submarines on the Atlantic coast, and two years in the Industrial Department, Philadelphia Navy Yard in addition to his duty on the Destro­yer Overton and Tanker Sapelo.

BLUE BONNET'S FIRST A NI­VERSARY On the first of September 1! J34, the day before we transited the Panama Canal enroute New York, the first issue of the present Blue Bonnet was printed. Today's issue marks the first anniversary of our paper. Formerly there was a " Blue Bon­net" printed during the HOUSTON'S tour of duty on the China Station. ' l'he first il'sue of the " Blue Bonnet" appeared 14th February, 1930 while the ship was enroute Guam to Manila. From then on a weekly edition was printed until the Ship's return to the States in the winter of ' 33 at which time, because of the transfer of the Printer and Editoriial Staff, it died a natural death. During that period from the Ship's return to the States until the f.: rst issue of the present paper appeared, the Ship was with­out a news organ. The " Blue Bonnet" owes its re­birth to the combined efforts of Co­mander Eldridge, avigator Chaplin Salisbury; Lieut. Berkley, our first Editor; Kessler, quartermaster strik­er; anci Botterel, navigator's yeoman. Since the first issue appeared, just a year ago, the paper has appeared weekly; and has grown from two pa­ges to four. Its newest innovation is the use of Clipper Book stock and the use of half- tone cuts. W. O. EXAMS
