Woodson, U. S. N., of Lynchburg, Va., recently Chief of Staff of As­iatic Fleet would be detailed as Naval Aide to President Roosevelt this fall. Captain Baker To Duty In Argentina Among recent Navy orders were those of Captain Guy E. Baker who so recently left us for duty at Naval Operation, Navy Department, Wash­ington, D. C. Captain Baker's new or­ders assigned him to duty with the Argentina Navy Department, Buenos Aires, Argentina. If the rumor of a coming Presidential cruise comes true, we will undoubtedly enjoy the company of the Captain who so ably commanded us from June 5, 1934 to June 25, 1935. The Blue Bonnet takes this oppor­tunity to congratulate the following Chiefs who have been awarded a per­manent appointment as Chief Petty Officers after qnalifiing by examina­tion. We all hope they stay for twenty. Proimos, L. D., CBM( PA) 20 July 1937. Shepherd, L. R., CSK( PA) 20 July 1937. Vizard, J. J., CPhmM( PA) 19 July 1937.

I N LAST Saturday's game with the Moose, though our hunters went trophyless, the Houston nine most certainly outhit their opponents, and played an excellent game. Marred by only one unlucky inning of pitching and committing only four errors, the team showed ex­cellent form for the opening game of the season. High­lights of the game were: A beautiful one- handed catch by Phillips that looked impossible; two long hits by Hattemer, one a home run and the other cut to a double by ground rules; well performed double plays, Phillips to I- Iattemer, and Nickel to Brown to Hattemer. This Saturday the nine meets a tougher opponent in the McLeish ag­gregation, who have a number of wins to their credit, including one over the Detroit outfit. This game is scheduled for 1400 at Kearny Field in the navy yard. The diamond is quite close, three blocks forward and two to the left, so lets all turn out and give the team the support they need and deserve. The score card on last week's game shows the following: Houston AB Nickel ss 4 Brown 2b 5 Phillips 3b 4 Hattemer Ib 4 Slough cf 3 Jasinski c 4 Wright If 4 Wicker rf 2 Salmon p 2 1. Waterman p 2 2. Schrum cf 2 3. Adams ss 1 4. Chmura rf 1 5. Weaver cf 1 6. Merce c 1 If one will journey sixty miles from the navy yard northward through the small cities of Napa and Santa Rosa he will eventually reach Guerneville, a small resort town nestling on the north bank of the Russian River. It is here that he will find something different and very interesting in the way of out­door entertainment. En route, one tours through large apple orchards where one may stop and taste of fresh apple cider and fresh fruits sold at wayside stands. During the last 15 miles the trip is made through a picturesque winding highway flanked on each side by tall evergreens of cedar, fir, and pine. The resinous fragrance from the needles of these trees coupled with the dry fresh air of a mountainous rolling country lends a zip and tang to the atmosphere which alone is ample payment for the expense of the entire trip. There, too, is a petri­fied forest eight miles from the main highway. This might be interesting to investigate. At Guerneville the meandering Rus­sian River provides enough water the whole year around to make possible excellent swimming, fishing, and can­oeing. Two hotels within the town and hundreds of cottages in its vicinity and along the banks of the river are accomodations for those who desire to remain overnight. But the rush over the week- end for cabins and hotels is so great generally that it is ( Continued on Page 4.)
