WHY GUANTANAMO? all roses, as the three recent crashes which cost the life of one man, and a possible second, vividly testify to. They say that they come in three's­lets hope that it is true and that the jinx of Cruiser Wing has been brok­en. With the arrival of the CHAU­MONT, our division obtained two new seamen from the N. A. S., Norfolk and an AMM3c from th~ Nevada: Welcome gent's! Weare now prac­tically up to complement and are carrying a number of men for further assignment. Many of them have ex­pressed the wish that they could stay on the Good Ship HOUSTON, but as such is impossible, the best that we can do is wish them luck when they go to their new assignments. ....... SPLIT ESSES Indies was developed there, ( 1904­1916.) Some may wonder just what it was that made Guantanamo Bay a place so selected by the Navy Depart­ment. The reasons, a few, are rather self apparent. Its' sheltered harbor, availability as a fueling station, deep water needing very little dredging work, its position as to our interests and its' size. It was selected in 1901, by the Gov­ernment, as the site of one of four projected naval stations on the Cuban coast. -• ­• • ­• • • Baseball The HOUSTON team will play the following scheduled games with ship's teams as indicated. 3 October- VESTAL vs. HOUSTON. 7 October - PENSACOLA. 10 October - INDIANAPOLIS 13 October - SALT LAKE CITY. 17 October - LOUISVILLE. 20 October - PORTLAND Basketball Daily workouts until arrival West Coast.

Boxing and Wrestlmg Divisional eliminations of which de­tailed schedule is not available at present. Division champions must be determined prior to 8 December, 1934. ATHLETIC CALENDER OARSMEN GOING STRONG Every morning finds the crews of our racing whale- boats working out in preparation for the coming con­tests. The boys are doing an excellent job and it is hoped that by the time of the starting gun, they will be in the best of shape and condition to bring in the bacon for the HOUSTON. RIFLEMEN The gunnery experts of the HOU­STON have been busily engaged in preparing for the Scouting Force Rifle and Pistol matches, and to date have shown pretty good form. The candidates for the ScoFor. Rifle team are: Ens. S. Jurika; Lewis, E. H. Bgmstr2c; Kitchen, H. E., Cpl.; Wit­hey, C. H., Cpl.; and Standafer, S. D., Seale. The ship's officers pistol team is composed of Chief Pay Clerk Borne and Chief Gunner Condit. The enlist­ed men's pistol team is held up by Standafer, S. D., Seale., who is go­ing to be a one man team as far as we know at present. The best of luck to the candidates for the ScoFor out­fit and to our own teams. -• ­• The starboard hangar has been the scene of much activity during the afternons. Blue be- panted lads are jumping, twisting and straining, striving to make an organization that will consistently be able to sink the apple for two points. The boys are working hard to achieve the funda­mental requirments of a successful team, physically in the pink, and have the ability to go forty minutes at top speed. The C& R gang are going to make a back- board and hoop for practice underway and with this aid, a practice of plays will be managed and the foul shooting brushed up. Mid- season form for the first game is desired and with an early start it is possible to get just that. Ensign Williams is coaching and hopes to put a good team on the floor. The following have turned out so far, but more are wanted: Baker, O'Brien, Wilburn, Kennedy, Botterell, Bair, Brown, Zietfuss, Harding, Douglas, Nier, Rainey, Mustain, Hunter, Jones, Hays, Foreman, Freeman and David­son. There are only three veterans from last year. and new material is needed. So far the boys are shaping up finely, but are still a little stiff. BASKETEERS WORK OUT ...... VESTAL SCORES WIN Stacking up against a more power­ful and practiced unit proved a down­fall to the HOUSTON pill followers when they played their first game in the Guantanamo area. Due to lack of practice, and consequently an inferior brand of ball, the HOUSTON team showed rather poorly in the initial game and there is room for pHmty of improvement. Tiny Rimmer on the mound and Davis staring at first. With a little time on the diamond, seriously practicing at the game will make a world of difference and we all know that the material is here if the men will only come out and those that are out work hard to build up the team. The HOUSTON team can win consistently when going good so back up the team and go to the games. If you don't play, give those that do your backing.
