Transcript Volume III * " S. 5... 0 .. 5...- 0.. * Long Beach, Calif., 29 September, 1936 Number XXXVII 9- 12 October 5- 7 October 8- 9 October NAVY RELIEF SOCIETY AND AMERICAN RED CROSS --::-- The following letter has been re­ceived from the CinC: " The period from 1 October 1936 to 31 October 1936 is designated as the time for the annual appeal for funds for the Navy Relief and the American Red Cross. As in the case last year, this campaign will be conducted as a joint appeal. The proceeds to be pro­rated on a basis yet to be determined but aproximately 70% to Navy Re­lief and 30% to Red Cross. " These two agencies are the ones usually called upon by personnel of the Navy for alleviating their cares in times of distress. The w~ rk of the Navy Relief, our own organization, is so well known as to require no ex­planation. The Red Cross is national in character and its facilities are used throughout the year for services that cannot be rendered by the Navy Re­lief. " The Commander- in- Chief realizes the heavy financial burdens placed upon the personnel of the fleet by in­creases in rents and cost of food and clothing. However he does feel that work performed by these organiza­tions is so deserving as to warrant the whole- hearted support of all, and urges each and everyone to give what he fells he is financially able to. As a guide for a minimum joint contri­bution he suggests: commissioned offi­cers, $ 2.00; warrant officers and chief petty officers, $ 1.00; petty officers first class, $ 0.75; petty officers second and third class, $ 0.50; all others $ 0.25.

The coming season promises to be a very interesting one. The schedule is to be out sometime this week. There is to be a fall league to include the ships that are in now, and a spring league for the ships that re­turn in the spring and late winter. There will be a playoff, for fun only, next spring. There is no reason that the HOU­STON can't at least provide some very strong competition for any and every team in the league. It is ex­pected that with the right kind and amount of cooperation from all con­cerned, we can not only provide competition, but be one of the teams in the money at the payoff. Ship's Service has provided the team with good equipment and pro­mises to continue, if results merit it. The first, second, and third teams to finish at the top of the fall league will credit their ships with 50, 30, and 20 Iron Man points respectively. It is known that there is a great deal more baseball talent aboard than has been turning out for the daily practices. Success depends primarily on an honest effort. Come on out!
