Transcript Page Four THE B L U E B 0 !, T NET USS HouStO: l- 10- 20- 34- 800. PORTLAl'W WINS We wonder what a match between the entertainers would be like. Too bad the PORTLAND didn't send some of theirs. The LOUISVILLE band put plenty of heat into their numbers and we know they would have won by decision, K. O: and by fall. And did you notice the cowboys we imported for the event? We still can't figure out how they got aboard, however the program said it was Woodard, Hollis, and that " cu'I'd man" " Red" from our barbershop. Chapman apparently has been understudy to Bing Crosby and Guy Lombardo and we hope to hear from him some more. And then what ship would be complete without its Filipino Band. Santiago, Barnzo, Tan­dero and Ayap were on deck to do honors and did them well. But the best( ?) we heard was that rendition of the " Man on the Flying Trapeze" rendered by that famous " duet" Bric­kler, Woods and Heyworth. Couldn't you just see him flying? Ensign Lam-worthier oponent than we thought and won by a fall in three minutes. Five tries on our part, no score, but a bullseye for PORTLAND and good bouts. Better luck for our boys next time. To Fernandez and Burns we offer­ed no opposition and they won their bouts by default. Schramm took up the cudgel in the f(~ atherweight class and went after Givetz but the PORT­LAND boy go; the decision. Then came our first win of the evening when Kline tangled with Smith and brought the first point in for the HOUSTON by winning the decision. Mustain followed by taking on Ram­sey, but the PORTLAND boy was beaten before the start. A bad leg gave the bout to the HOUSTON on a technical k. o. However that does not detract from the glory that rightly belongs to Mustain, believe me, that boy shows the makings of a Fleet Champion. In the last bout of the evening, for a good long while no one could guess who would come out on top. The judges however came to our rescue and gave the decision to our handsome Kennedy over Hobbs of the PORTLAND. bert stE! pped in with his trumpet and believe you me that was no amateur on the end of that horn. Couldn't you just see him with derby, mutes, etc. along with Paul Whitman's Band? And last but not least we finally heard " Subic" by our mail- holier­movie string trio, Woodward, Kollmer and Brown. Those boys tickle a mean set of strings. The gang though that probably put out most ergs is that outfit pr!? perly to be known as the " galley slaves". Those boys didn't perform on the stage, they did their work behind the scenes. It's no fun rising every morn­ing at two or three to get meals for 560 empty stomachs and then hear growls about this or that. Those boys were not flashy, didn't get much ap­plause, but take my word for it, they were just as important to the success of that smoker as the Entertainment Committee, the athletes who took part in it, or the entertainers who filled in between bouts. To the " s" division our due recoginition with the rest. The whole performance was what the HOUSTON ought to be, fine hosts, cheerful losers, and typical of what is finest in the SERVICE. Fall Series Run Off Toda, It has come to notice that among other sports on board a new team has been organized and the boys hope to bring new honors to the ship up­on our return to the West Coast. The alley lads who compose the new entry in the HOUSTON sports world are: Brown, EM1c; Kirkpatrick, Slc; D<? ­Bri, Y3c; Slodek, MM1c; Calhoun, S: c Johnston, Slc; Schramm, Slc; Burger, F2.::; Ellard, FC1c; Rica, MM2c. We wish these boys the best of luck in their new endea. v. o. r... WHALEBOAT RACES POSTPONED BOWLING Due to the very inclement weather the scheduled races for the fall series were called off yesterday and will be run some time today. In view of the fact that this issue goes to press a day ahead of date, we are unable to give all the particulars of todays events. We wish the HOUSTON crews the best of luck and hope they bring home the bacon. I. - ..... Send the BLUE BONNET home. . II. New ideas can be good or bad, just the same as old ideas. - F. D. Roosevelt. The basketball squad lost its first game in a pre- season practice tilt against the Marine Barracks last­Tuesday night on the laters floor. The final score, 15- 37, was not indicat­ive of the brand of ball that the HOU­STON played and it showed the Mar­ines to a decided advantage. Without trying to pull the old alibi, we may truthfully say that if we had been in condition, had been used to their floor and the uncertain lighting, the score might have been different, not necessarily meaning that the game would have been won. 1st quarter 8- 10; first halI, 12- 20; third quarter, 15- 26; and end of game, 15- 37. Douglas, O'Brien, guards; Bail', center, Botterell, Nier, forwards, was the starting lineup. Mustain, Davis­son, Rainey, Schrumm, Stipetic, Hard­ing, Thomas, and Stoddard all entered the game and showed a god brand of ball handling all around. Passing needs improving and the biggest dis­advantage to date is the need of get­ing into good physical condition, with­out this, not much can be done. ...... LOSE PRESEASON GAME Playing air- tight ball and allowing one hit in eight innings, the HOUS­TON pill tossers weakened in the ninth and allowed 6 runs to cross the plate in the last frame. It may be said to the boys credit that all the hits were clean and not an error was made. The SALT LAKE boys just went into a hitting spree and connect­ed with enough pills to put the game on ice. Shullenberger pitched heads- up ball but was unfortunate enough to have the opposition get his range and chalk up hits. In the first eight innings the backing was air- tight and the boys were putting them out one two three. We can truly say that the team is coming along in fine style and the forthcoming games are going to be hard on the opposition. Good work. f1~~ ~ , HODS'l'ON NINE LOSES TOUGH ONE
