Transcript Volume III * " SeSe .. 0 .. 5...- 0.. * Long Beach, Calif., 29 August, 1936 Number XXXIII YE OLDE SHORT RANGE BATTLE PRACTICE By The Gunnery Officer In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to love. In the autumn a young man's fancy turns to football, bonfires, pumpkins, Hallowe'en .... and in the Navy, to thoughts of Short Range Battle Practice. All other forms of target practice have varied in form through the years but Short Range Battle Practice is pretty much the same as it was when Admiral Dewey was a midshipman. Everyone knows that this practice is the first and most elementary gunnery exercise of the year and it has for its objective, the reorganizing of guns crews and the selecting and training of pointers for the more advanced practices of the coming gunnery year. Even though Short Range is an easy type of prac­tice and is most elementary in charac­ter, there is no practice which means more to the men that shoot it or to the ship itself. In the first place, prize money- which is always ac­ceptable- is at stake in this practice. In the second place qunlifications for gun pointers and trainers are at stake- which means extra money on each payday for the remainder of the year if the pointer groups click. But the thing that really makes this prac­tice stand out is that it is a test of individual skills more than any other practice of the year. Through the years, Short Range Battle Practice has come to be considered as a criter­ion of " just how good are you, any­way". ( Continued on Page Four) FAMED COCOS ISLANDS IN THE NEWS AGAIN --::-- Recent newspaper acounts of the re­scue of an adventurious couple bring back memories of the HOUSTON'S two visits to this famous little dot on the Pacific. An American adventurer and his wife had stopped at Cocos, last April, in their cruise around the Americas in a canoe. In May the man became ill and was unable to continue the journey. It was not until this August that assistance arrived, a Tuna fishing schooner happening to stop by, there­by being the means of averting a tragedy at this beautiful, and his­toric island. The HOUSTON anchored in Chat­ham Bay in her two visits there with President Roosevelt, while the re­cent rescue was affected in Wafer Bay on the farther side of the island Many members of the crew will re­member the expedition which landed at Wafer B. ay to inspect the scene of treasure hunting operations which a British group were there conducting. • • I FORMATIO REGARDING ALLOTMENTS --::-- The attention of the Bureau has been invited to a corporation whose method of operation is such as to circumvent the restrictions establish­ed by the Department as to the pur­poses for which allotments may be registered. In order to obtain a loan, the bor­rower, besides signing the usual pa­pers, is required to enter into a con­tract for a $ 1,000 " bond" or " savings ( Continued on Page Four) WRESTLING TEAM TO COMPETE IN ALL SERVICE CHAMPIONSHIP The second annual all service wrest­ling championship sanctioned by the Comander- in- Chief, U. S. Fleet and sponsored by the San Pedro Army and Navy YMCA will be held at San Pedro YMCA September 9- 10- 11 & 12, com­mencing at 7: 00 p. m. each evening. Once more the squad meets with difficulties as the dates of the meet conflict with Short Range Battle Prac­tice and most of the old members of the squad are in the deck force. They have battle stations for short range and cannot enter, this leaves the featherweight, lightweight and welter weight classes without entries, Any­one not having a SRBP station and desiring to enter report for practice. Previous experience is not necessary. At present the following men are re­presenting the HOUSTON in the meet: Pratt - 1551bs, ( engineers), ( Continued on Page Four) ••• NAVAL NOTES A D NEWS Acting Secretary of the Navy, Ad­miral William H. Standley, announ­ced that a new trophy designated as the Rear Admiral William A.

Kimmell of Vincennes, Indiana, christened the VINCE ES May 21 by smashing a bottle of French wine, donated by Mayor Bonvoison of Vincennes, France, across her bow.
