Transcript Volume III HOUSTON MAKES GUNNERY RECORD --::-- In the Broadside Battle Practice fired 21 October, the Houston made the highest score of any Cruiser firing the practice. 0 other cruiser came anywhere near making a comparable score.

Remember the Fourth Anti- Aircraft Baker and the Second Advance Anti- Aircraft Mach­ine Gun practices that are to be fired this coming week. Let's show this navy that the Houston gang is a bunch of shootin. g. f. ools! THE CHRISTMAS PARTY --::-- Because of operations at sea and the absence on extended liberty of so many committee members the Navi­gator has not had an opportunity to convene another meeting this week. So the information promised last week on the work of the committes will have to be held over for a later issue of the Blue Bonnet. However, the committees are work­ing on the details of the party. Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Campbell are doing the p're\' iminary shopping '! for the gifts and are getting in contact with needy children to be asked to the party. This is a big job and we should all appreciate the work, thought and time which these ladies are giving to the party. We have at last located a Santa Clause. He meets every specification for the part. Who do you think it is?

Rather it is something to work for, an opportunity to prove our ability ar. d smartness as an intregal part of the U. S. Navy. At this time it does not seem amiss to remind ourselves that personal appearance and neat uniforms re­ceve sharp attention. Under personal appearance: A high standard of personal appearance is esser. tial to a smart ship.
