Having taken on the Chicago, and then the Pensa­cola- Northampton winners, with 50 per cent of our originals still in the running we can be well proud of what our team is doing.

These men are Chick­126 pounds, Arthur- 155 pounds, Fol­ta- 165 pounds, and Fordemwalt- 175 pounds. As seen by their records these men must have something on the ball so let's get behind them and give them all the support they need to uphold the honor of the good 01' U. S. S. HOUST. O. N... Have you written home this week? INCOME TAX RETURNS, Everyone in the Naval Service who is a Petty Officer First Class or above and who is not married is required by law to make the prescribed return. A report will be made by the Paymaster who will go by Service records. Those men who are married but who have never had that fact entered in their records should do so at once, other­wise it may cause them trouble. Information and forms as to the correct procedure for making the re­turn may be obtained in the Pay Of­fice. Those persons who are married and whose pay is more that $ 2500.00 a year are also required to make the return. •••• CRUISER HOUSTO ( Continued) This week Col. Ball continues his narrative of the " HOUSTON" with an account of the launching ceremon­ies and designation of and celebra­tion of " Cruiser Houston Day." Launching of USS Houston A large deligation headed by Mayor Monteith and the late Judge W. O. Huggins, the latter acting as special representative of Governor Dan Moo­dy, chartered a special train to Wash­ington to attend the christening of the Houston, September 7, 1929. At Washington a steamer was engaged for the trip down the Potomac to Newport News. Governor Harry Flood Byrd of Vir­ginia, by proclamation, named the day of launching " Houston Day," and the Mayor of Newport News declared a holiday. The governors of Tennessee and Virginia attended with their military staffs, and the assistant secretary of the navy presided at the ceremony, with six admirals present. In the backgroun were five battleships, eight cruisers and a large number of smaller craft. The Texas senators and congress­men, including Houston's representa­tive, the late Congressman Daniel Garrett, were in attendance, as were many senators and members of con­gress from other states, and high Na­val Officials. Around 10,000 visitors were there, including more than 2,000 Texans. A bottle of Buffalo Bayou water as used by Miss Holcombe in cris­tening the cruiser Houston. Her maid f honor, Miss Bute and Miss Wil­liams, special guests of Houston, were with her as she broke the bottle over the prow of the Houston as it glided down the ways amid the acclaim of the multitude. ......

We leave Long Beach on Monday, the 4th and come back on Friday the 8th, if all goes well. This week's jaunt be­gins a new series of cruiser practices which will continue through the pres­ent quarter. Surf Landing Parties at San Clemente will also be featured within the ensueing two or three months. .. ... Let's make the BLUE BONNET the best paper in the Fleet for 1937!
