Transcript Volume IV ....~... * " 5.5... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Long Beach, Calif., 30 January, 1937. Number V MOVIES In answer' to some of our readers complaints about the movies, parti­culary to the showing of the same movie several times. This condition is brought about by the fact that we are in the Navy' and operating sche­dules come before movie schedules. Often times ship movements pre'vent our receiving our movie allotment on time, as was the case on the cruise last spring. Then too, some emergency 01' unexpected movement is ordered as was recently the case. All the mov­ies come from a distributing center in the East. A recent large allotment was originally scheduled to be brought to this coast in the Indianapolis. When it was found that she was to remain on the East Coast for some time, they were to be transported in the Okla­homa, but she remained in Europe longer than had been planned. In the meantime a number of those movies in the Fleet had to be sent on to the other branches of the service so as ( Continued. o.. n.. Page Four) BASKETBALL NOTES The HOUSTON hoop artists broke the ice with a decisive victory of 41 to 12 over the PORTLAND quintet Thursday afternoon at the Long Beach Armory. The game proved ex­cellent evidence of hard work in the past by each member of the team, but featured the accurate eye of Phillips and Chmura, smooth pass work of the center and guards, and a well refereed game. Even though this game climaxed the season as far as Naval competi­tion is concerned, the team will en­deavor to schedule games with civilian teams at one of the local courts. " CONGRATULATIONS" Again the HOUSTON scores One Hundred percent. At this time of the year much interest is taken through­out the service, patiently waiting the results of the selection board. This year keen interest was taken aboard the HOUSTON as there were three Lieutenant Commanders whose re­cords would be studied very closely and if found satisfactory would be nominated for the rank of Commander. The Blue Bonnet wishes to extend its sincere congratulations, not only to the new Commanders, but to our­selves, for having had the pleasure of serving with them. So to Commanders Vytlacil, Keat­ing, and Inglis: We salute you and wish you many pleasant cruises. " Fine Officers make fine Ships". .. ' 1. " PLEASANT CRUISE" Lieutenant Commander A. O. Rabi­deau DF, ( USNR), reported on board . the 24th January, 1937 for additional duty. His permanent station is that of Commanding Officer of the USS PA­DUCAH stationed at Duluth, Minn. The Paducah is assigned to the train­ing of Naval Reserves in the Ninth Naval District. We wish you, Commander, a very pleasant cruise on the good ship HOUSTON. IS When the Union Royal Mail Liner TAHITI sank in the South Seas in 1930, she had 13 life boats aboard her but only 12 of them were launched. The 13th boat was allowed to sink with the ship. BLOOD DONERS In response to a request, the follow­ing men volunteered and reported to the Seaside Hospital at Long Beach, California, willing to act as blood donors in the case of Mrs. Margaret Athanour, wife of a First Seargent, USMC. This was on 18 January. Peiffer, G. J., RM1c, Freeman, H. E., GM3c, Hartkopf, D. L., Sea1c, Miesse, L. L., Sea2c. It so happened that it was not necessary to use any of them, but their immediate response is very com­mendable. The Commanding Officer and the Senior Medical Officer of the Naval Unit ashore wish to express their sincere appreciation of their generous conduc.. t. ... WRESTLING NOTES Pratt, W. H., F1c., - Our 155 lb. wrestler is entered in the Southern California A. A. U. Wrestling Tourna­ment. He won his first match, Satur­day, 23 January 1937, by pinning his man in three minutes, gaining the right to enter again this week in the second round of the tournament to be held at the Hollywood A. C. in Holly­wood. We wish him lots of luck! It is the opinion of the writer that Pratt will go a long way in this tournament. The results of the Group 1, Semi­finals ScouHng Force wrestling in which the HOUSTON had four entries namely: Chick, E. A., Sea1c.; Arthur, R., GM3c; Folta, A. E., Sea1c; and Fordemwaldt, J. W., Sea1c, resulted in the team losing all their bouts but the men deserve a lot of credit for having gone as far as they did considering the fact that all the men with the exception of Folta, were first ( Continued on Page Two)
