( Thru the Windows of the Streetcars)
A few of the important points of interest
to visit while in San Francisco
are listed below.
There are many stories told and no
doubt many interesting ones that
never have been published about San
Francisco, from the time gold was discovered
until the present day.

all means be visited, they are of Historical
importance to all, an education

With the official Chicago- Houston
match just two weeks off, the squad
is working for speed and final conditioning,
with lots of Iron Man points

LEATHER P SHERS
Last Thursday night the San Francisco
played host to the Houston at
a smoker during which the boxing
team got away to an unofficial start.
Most of the ship's company were
present to form a high powered
cheering section. .
In the first bout Hastings ( B Div)
met Morrison of the S. F. This was
a lively affair with both lads evenly

In the next bout, Hill ( Warrant Officer's
Mess) met Perry of the S. F.
This match was one- sided from the
beginning and the hard- hitting Houston
boy scored a knock- out in the
second round. The next fight, from the
spectators' viewpoint, was without
a dull moment. Adams ( 1st. Div.)
