Transcript Volume IV, Number 32 * " S. 5. " D" S~ O"* Navy Yard, Mare Island- Vallejo, California 6 August 1937 Let's Go Fishing IT IS seldom that Navy men take much interest in fishing, yet were a little information given out on the subject, concerning places to go and the methods to be used in angling in this vicinity one might witness a warming enthusiasm in this oldest of arts. In the bay at the present time the striped bass are taking the hook. Just above the causeway to the north of the navy yard and also in the vicinity of the Carquinez Bridge these big fel­lows are being caught on plugs and sardines ( cut). Only the other day a big striped bass weighing a mere matter of 46 pounds was exhibited around Vallejo. When they are that big, the fisherman knows he has hooked into something. Sunday 26 September has been des­ignated as bass derby day in Vallejd and environs. A prize of $ 1,000 in cash and an addition of $ 1,000 in merchan­dise is offered to people catching the largest bass in the waters between the navy yard and Vallejo. Here's a chance to combine sport with profit. Black bass, catfish, and perch thrive and can be taken in the Napa, San Joquian, Merced, and Sacramento Ri­vers. Any kind of bait, perferably worms will draw these fish. Bass plugs provide an increased thrill as a lure to be used for black bass. If one desires the aristocracy of all angling, good trout " fishing-. he will have to visit the lakes and streams of the back country in the Sierra Nevada range of mountains. Trout may be had at a distance of from 120 to 150 miles from the navy yard. At the ( Continued on Page 4.) Houston To Battle Detroiters THE Houston nine again goes to the fray this Saturday afternoon when they tackle the Detroit team, with a good chance of bringing up their average. The game is scheduled for the usual time of 1400 and is to be played at Kearny Field, the scene of last week's game. Let's all turn out again and help the boys keep up that old fighting spirit. " Our Navy's Radio Stations THE u. s. Navy has the largest single radio organization in exis­tence. Though not generally known, the radio station at Canacao, P. L, close by the Cavite Navy Yard, is one of the first in the great chain around the world of navy radio stations. This station recently observed its twentieth birthday. In 1917 the world's largest transmitter was installed, having been built at Palo Alto, California. It had an output of 500 kilowatts and was the first transmitter to be heard across the Pacific Ocean. The U. S. Navy's four hundred sta­tions ashore and afloat rival all broad­casting networks in size and in scope. There are fifty radio compass stations affording twenty- four hour service to mariners. These stations are scat­tered all over the country and along the coasts of Alaska, West Indies, Hawaii, Philippines, Samoa, Guam, and Panama. Demon Of Destruction FJR a long time he crouched there looking into the early morning sun­Ji,) lt. His gaze wandered over the gold- streaked, gray expanse spread before him. He thought for a moment of the peaceful surroundings; how warm, sweet, friendly and quiet, so quie. t- But how quickly he would change all that! In a moment that serenity would be shattered, blasted- pock­nlarked- scarred! His right hand closed around the grip- found the trigger. His left firm­ly grasped the cold steel barrel. He glanced first one way then the other. On both sides his comrades knelt awaiting the signal. Once again he reviewed his orders. He was to push straight ahead up to the wire- take everything in his path- spare nothing- no stopping, just on and on- A whistle- the signal! He pressed the trigger. The cold barrel leaped in his hand, his whole body quivered, a thousand hammers beat against his eardrums- tac- tac- tac- no stopping now! Only onward- Qn- Qn- tac- tac­tac- Lord! The havoc this thing could wreck! Tac- tac- tac- tac- tac- tac- tac- tac­tac- hours of tailing, blasted away in a few seconds- tac- tac- tac- tac! The lust to destroy engulfed him­he watched, fascinated, as pieces flew into the air, spewed in every direc­tion- tac- tac- tac- tac- tac- somi- were flecked with red- Before he could rally his senses he was into the wire. He paused to look hack at the battered swathe he had ( Continued on Pac. 2.)
