TON FIRES GUNNERY PRACTICE --::-- During the past week the Houston was busily engaged in firing various gunnery practices. The Aviation un­it started the ball rolling last Sat­urday afternoon when they fired their Free Machine Gun Practice. The unit made a very creditable showing. When all the scores have been com­piled and compared, the Houston Un­it should be at or near the top of the list. While operating off San Clemente Island in company with various cruis­ers of the Scouting Force, three prac­tices were fired; namely, Anti- Aircraft Spotting, 3rd Battle Anti- Aircraft Practice UB" and 1st Advanced .50 cal. Machine Gun Practice. Although no exceptional scores were made by the Houston on any of these practices, they were outstanding because of the smoothness with which they were ex­ecuted and because of the. total lack of any casualties. Every man knew his job an- d - did-. i_. t · --- MR.

BASEBALL Houston Nine Loses to Vestal in Fall Series Opener Being handed their first set back, nevertheless gaining valuable ex­perience, our baseball team is still in the running in the Fall- Series. Tomorrow, Sunday, the team faces the Medusa nine at Navy Field, Long Beach, in their second game of the series.
