Transcript Volume III * " S. S... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * SEATTLE, WASHINGTON- IS JULY, 1936. Number XXVII HOUSTON NINE WINS --::-- Take Measure of Chester Nine In Exciting Contest --::-- Displaying great improvement since their last game, the HOUSTON nine produced definite indications of their strength in downing the strong Ches­ter nine last Thursday afternoon. • Playing a seven inning practice game on the Queen Anne diamond, our boys were extended to the limit, but benefits gained in recent batting practices resulted in steady hitting with the team opening up in the sixth with a barrage of six hits and the three runs which clinched the game. The Chester first drew blood in the second when one run was pushed across the plate before Weber bore down and fanned two in a row to retire the side. The Houston came back in their half of the inning to col­lect two runs, manufactured when Weber homered with Battle on the sacks. In the third the Houston in­creased her lead two more when Will­muth singled, scoring on Wright's doub'le to left field, Wright then scored from 3rd. on Spruell's slow roller to short. In the 4th the Chester collected an­othe: run before Rimmer registered a strikeout to retire the side. In the 5th. the Chester again jumped into the lead when Barrett tripled with two on, himself scoring on a pich hitter line drive to right. Houston then tied up the score in their half of the frame when Wright smacked the first pitch deep into left field for a homer. The Chester again jumped into the lead in the 6th when ( Continued on Page Two) HOUSTON FLOAT GETS BIG HAND --::-- The HOUSTON float depicting King Neptune's Court drew a big hand from the crowd of some 50,000 people as it passed through the locks of Lake Washington Canal. Number one Motor Launch rigged as old King Nep's Royal Barge and the Royal Court which it carried was perhaps one of the saltiest assem-" blages that ever passed through the locks. On going to press no word had been received as to the official outcome but from the cheers our entry received, King Neptune & His Royal Court seemed to be the favorite Navy Float. ( Continued on Page Four) ••• NEW CPO'S --::-- During the past week two of our very popular shipmates, J. J. Vizard, Phmlc and L. D. Proimos, BMlc re­ceived the good news of their appoint­ment to Cphm( AA) and CBM( AA). Through the Blue Bonnet, all hands extend their felicitations to the new Hackies. • • NEW UNIFORMS --::-- During the past week our baseball team tried out their new uniforms and from reports it seems the new out­fits have given the boys quite an in­centive to produce more wins on the diamond for the HOUSTON. It must be admitted the uniforms are really snappy in appearance and all the old timers on board say these are the best suits ever S( lQJ1 on the HOUSTON.
