Transcript Volume III * "' S. S... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Long Beach, Calif., 31 October, 1936 Number XLII HOUSTON'S CHRISTMAS PARTY Plans are now being made for the annual children's Christmas Party to be given aboard ship on Christmas Day. The Navy Relief Committee ( mentioned in another column of this sheet) has consented to undertake the planning of the party, but help from all hands will be needed to make it a success. We feel sure that the fun which all, young and old, will have at the party, plus the satis­faction of seeing so many happy little children in our midst will be more than ample reward for the effort required. The general plan is as follows: Children between the ages of five and twelve of all men attached to the ship plus about twenty- five children of poor families will be invited to the party. The children will be divided into a number of groups, and a group will be assigned to each division for special attention and guidance during the entire time they are on the ship. ( Continued .. on.. Pa~ e Four) NAVY TO PLAY PENN --::-- Today the Midshipmen's football team will meet the Pennsylvania Uni­versity's football team at Franklyn Field, Philadelphia. Early in the sea­son, Yale defeated Penn. 7- 0. Two weeks ago the Quakers downed the powerful Princeton eleven 7- 0. Last Saturday they romped over Brown 48- 6. However, in spite of Penn's. powerful defense and veteran com­bination of players, Navy should come through for a win. In the past three years Pennsylvania has failed to score on Navy. Then too, Navy is smarting under two hard fought de­feats. HOUSTON TO GET UNDERWAY 0001 2nd.

Mr. Schlack has been spending the entire week getting ac­climated and getting his office in shape; but, this coming week he will open shop for business. We are indeed fortunate in having such a capable man assigned to the r: hip. Mr. Schlack is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Dental College and after graduation went back to the University as an instructor · The Blue Bonnet in behalf of the Officers and Crew welcome our new Dentist aboard and wish him a happy cruise. ....
