GOVERNMENT CONSTITUTION :-- TheChile: m Constitution, as drawn up in 183; J, wa~; a compromise between the BritIsh and Americ:-. n models. After the Civil Wa' of 1801 changes were illstitllt" rl on the line of the British Parliament. In 1923 and 1925 further changes were macle. Under these:- Ex cutive authority rests in th~' Pr'esident who is elected for six year by direct vote at t! le polls. The Chamber of Deputies initiate: all leg- islation, and this function 01 the Senate is revisionary. Plebiscites of the people are to be taken only in the event of < l clash between Cong're~" tlnd the Pre" ident upon questions of Constitutional reforms.

Kruger was trans fene'l I, 0 the RecruitinO' Station Nashville, Tenn., for duty. He " ill Ion~ be remembered for all the little favors he did for members of the crew, hi cordiality and good sports­~ lan"~ lip. He was an interesting and mtclllg- ent eonvcrsationist and could clw, ys be depended upon for a good story. Profe ' siom~ lIy he i conside ' ell one of the best Chief Pharmacist'l< Mate in the Navy whose advise could alwuys be depended upon. ' Ve feel certain that many members of the crew as well as the Chief Petty Officers were sorry to ' ee him leave an. 1 join in " i" hing him the best of luck for a pleasant tour of d\ lty. All enlisted men of the fleet ar invited to a Leap Year Dance which will be held tonigh at 2000 in the Service Men's Club, Long Beach.

We had an excellent team prior to leaving the Navy Yard, but did not get a chance to put them into fleet circulation due to the over­haul period. As the eliminations amOllg' the cruisers will start some­time durin!; September, we should use all thc time we can now in pre­paring a team that will go in and come out with a few of the belts, and it can be done as we have the material on board, New wrestling gCJr ; s being pur­chased and after several workouts ' ill be issued to those who show themselves fit and who attend every day at the workouts. No one will be given a suit who just wants to weal' it ul'ound Jnd say, " well I got a suit," because politicians do not make the te: lm. Any new mea who are interested in the team see either Wellbourne, IIIAA or Holt in the Gunnery Office ul'd the~' wil! see that you are well taker. care of. Mr. Young will again lead the team thi" year and with his leac! c, rship we sho• ulIdT. take a lew belts. Lt. Comdr. J. 111.
