Transcript Page Four WRESTLERS TIE BOXERS WIN LOUISVILLE Smoker Close The loyal supporters from the HOUSTON refused to allow the rain, which began during the wrestling bouts, to drive them away and were rewarded by seeing some good scraps. The HOUSTON " Bone- crushers" met the LOUISVILLE " grapplers" at the smoker over on the LOUIS­VILLE last Sunday night. Although the bouts were fought on a foreign mat, our grunt and groan artists crashed through for a much better showing than they made against the PORTLAND a week previous. Neither ship had an entry in the Bantam- weight class, but the HOU­STON lost the Feather- weight class to Terry of the LOUISVILLE due to the lack of a contestant. We have a well rounded " Middle- weight" team, but we need a lot more material in the lighter and heavier poundage. Turner lost his bout to Bourdon. A hard fight but the decision went to the man with more experience in the game. Head, of the HOUSTON carr­ied off the honors with a fall over Jewett, carrying him to the mat with a smashing double leg hold before the first two minates were up and never stopping until he satisfied himself and the rest of the HOUSTON root­ers with a hold down that Sampson himself couldn't have wriggled out of. White of the LOUISVILLE took Fish for a fall in the middle- weight class. Fish had a good heart and put up a game fight, but needed a little more experience. The weather man did his best to wet down White of the LOUISVILLE so he could slip out of the powerful grasp of our Folta, but he only found himself crashing to the mat on every attempt to free himself, notwithstanding his superior weight advantage. Folta won by a top time decision. The crowning achievement of the evening came when Starkie of the HOUSTON brought down the house by getting a fall over the 190- lb. wonder, Ellif of the LOUISVILLE, in exactly forty- five seconds. The mat by this­time was pretty soggy, but Starke merely used this to his advantage. Although the score for the meet was a tie due to the ' five points gained by the LOUISVILLE by virtue of our one defaulted bout, the good old THE B L U E B 0 1' T NET HOUSTON crashed through in true Texas style, with three bouts won out of five wrestled, two of the three be­ing falls. " Rebel" Kayse, our stablemaster, seems to be on the job. Laondero and Espinoza started it off with victories by default. Schramm's aching molar kept him on the bench and the 126 lb. class went to the LOUISVILLE. Mustain secured the division cham­pionship by a technical knockout over Cordon. Two k. o.' s in two fights is not so bad. Kline wanted to fight but had to be content with a default victory to win the division light- weight championship. Himrod, in spite of a broken rib, fought a hard fight against Dyches of the LOUISVILLE, but lost by decis­ion. Seeworster won the light heavy­weight fight by default and was fol­lowed by Kennedy, heavy- weight. Kennedy showed improvement and looked good against Jasper. The judges, however, awarded the decis­ion to Jasper after 3 well contested rounds. .... . SPLIT ESSES Word has gone forth to the utter­most parts of the ship that Admiral's Inspection will soon be with us again. With the thought of making it as pleasant as possible for the parties concerned, work has been progressing steadily in the preparation of the Steeds, Material and various parts of the ship that come under our care, for the approaching social event of the season. A complete overhaul of all chest, plus a new paint job for the Hangar and it equipment, has given proof to the utter fallacy of the malicious gossip, about the " V" Division losing its grip. The resulting aspect is pleasing to both the eye and ear. No longer is heard the accursed gurgle of water in the corners, for the demon caretakers, Gibson and Phelps, have conquered. Upon being questioned as to the secret of their success, they declined to make a statement for pub­lication at this time, claiming that they have not, as yet, received their basic patent. However they hinted that they would listen to any reason­able financial offer from parties in­terested in there revolutionary pro­cess. ....... Send the BLUE BONNET home. USS Houston- 10- 27- 34- 800. STOKERS NOTES A110Lher week completed with rou­tine maneuvers, and every week bringing us closer to the home port San Pedro. Weare still leading the cruisers in Engineering competition with nine point lead, now lets keep it there. All men can help by being careful of water consumption as that is the big factor. Mr. Bly returned from the Camera Party and from what we hear he had a pretty nice time. The fella's on the oil barge detail were wishing that they could remain in Guantanamo. I guess a few weeks on that type of duty sure makes them go native. I see that our call for Mr. ( King­Kong) Kollomer to come out for box­ing was to some avail and we see him working out every day now. We wonder why Mayhew, MM2c., asks so many questions? It seems the Electrical Gang have the Engineers Storekeeper on the verge of a physicial breakdown due to the rush for chits. If you want · official dope on when we arrive San Pedro, see Lima, WT2c ...... THE NAVY'S DAY- AT HOME Day with a feeling of thankfulness. The spirit and energy, the personal sacrifices which it has mane so un­complainingly during the last few years have been in keeping with its highest traditions. It is a perfor­mance of which not only the Navy, but the country, may well be proud. ..... KNOWING THE NAVY After the Great War, Admiral Mark Bristol, U. S. Navy, served as Ameri­can ambassador to Turkey for many years. His wise handling of many difficult problems there added greatly to our American prestige in diplo­macy and trade among the Turks and other people. s... o. f. the Near East. ALNAV 45 the officers and men of the NaVy, will continue to justify the confidence of their countrymen and perpetuate the high endeavor, efficiency and tradit­ion that has marked the service of the Navy of the Nation."
