Transcript 0 .... 1:... Volume IV, Number 36 Shipment Of Household Effects Upon Retirement Navy Yard, Mare Island- Vallejo, California Allotments Restrictions In Use 4 September 1937 Outstanding Performance With The Service Pistol An increasing number of officers and men are being checked pay for excess cost of shipments incident to retire­ment. In case of multiple shipments some persons have been required to pay for all except the first because of a misunderstanding of the restric­tions. It is important to note that the Gov- • ernment will ship household etfects from any number of points but to only a single destination. The first ship­ment establishes the precedent of des­tination. This transportation is autho­rized from the last duty station or place of storage to such address in the United States as may be specifi- , cally designated in the first applica­tion regardless of the home address as shown by the records of the Bureau of Navgation. ..... A PACK OF PLAYING CARDS To most of us playing cards appear as modern as most of the things about us. This is so if we consider only the elaborate and highly decorated backs of some packs. But a second look at a pack will convince you that they are quite different from anything of our age and time. The queer costumes of the different figures on the face cards are those of the time of Henry VII of England, whose reign marked the be­ginning of English playing cards. Few persons nowadays look upon cards as being so evil as they once did. Most persons today will partici­pate in and enjoy a game of bridge, etc., but there was a day when many ( Continued on Pap C.) Request for allotments, not to ex­ceed two exclusive of those for insur­ance premiums nor for SUCh. sums as will reduce the monthly balance below ten dollars, will be submitted to the Executive Officer via the Division Of­ficer. All requests for stoppage of allot­ments must be submitted to the Ex­ecutive Officer via the Division Officer and any allotment which has been discontinued at the request of the grantor, before the expiration of the term for which it was granted, shall not be renewed, either in the original sum or in a different amount, within that term, except by permission of the Commanding Officer. Under no conditions will allotments be registered to pay for loans or in­debtedness. Allotments may be made for the following reasons: to a bank for a savings account, to pay for in­surance premiums, or to a dependent. 4 · ". HOUSTON GRAPPLER TAKES SECOND IN A. A. U. MEET E. A. Chick, our 118 pound entry in the A. A. U. wrestling meet which was held in San Diego, at the Y. M. C. A. on Aug. 27 and 28, came home with sec­ond place honors. Chick is to be given a lot of credit for his showing in the meet as the cream of the southern part of the state competed in these matches. Good work, Chick, and may you come through with first place next time. A silver medal was awarded for second place. The following outstanding perform­ance with the service pistol is of un­usual interest: On May 18, 1937, at the U. S. Navy Rifle Range, Puuloa, T. H., Young, John A., GM2c, attached to the U. S. S. West Virginia and while a candidate for the Battleships' Pistol Team, fired the Navy Pistol Course " C," Record Practice, and made a perfect score, 56 bull's- eyes out of 56 shots with a score of 280. This course consists of: 14 timed shots at 25 yards 14 timed shots at 50 yards 14 rapid shots at 25 yards 14 slow shots at 50 yards This outstanding performance is be­lieved to be without duplication under the present rules, which have been in effect about six years. A check- up with the Army, Marine Corps, and the Na­tional Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice indicates that it has been done only once in the past few years under different rules and on an Army course, which is different from the Navy course. The Bureau would like to be inform­ed of any authentic similar record made by Navy personnel. ••• NORFOLK NAVY YARD UNDER MANY FLAGS The United States Navy Yard at Norfolk, Virginia, has the unusual distinction of having been under dif­ferent flags: British, Virginia Col­onial, Confederate States, and the United States of America.
