Transcript * " S. S... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Volume IV, Number 40 Navy Yard, Mare Island- Vallejo, California 2 October 1937 New Orleans - Houston Smoker From An Eyewitness On August 23 at 1254, G W. Jack­son, SK1c, U. S. N., and I w~ re on the second floor of the Wing On building at which time the Sincere building across the street was bombed. At the minute the bomb expoded the sensa­tion experienced was the same as standing on the deck of a battleship firing a broadside, but of greater in­tensity. We were both knocked to our knees from the concussion. We got up took stock of ourselves discovered we were unhurt except that Jackson was slightly cut on the head and leg. I pulled a piece of glass out of his head about a quarter of an inch long. We then looked around discovered all who were not injured or killed had run for the stairs. We saw many people lying all over the place apparently dead. We then ~ eard a Chinese girl saying, " My eyes, I can't see." We moved debris, got to her, discovered one of her eyes gone and glass stick­ing through the other eyelid into the eye. She was bleeding all over from severe cuts. We picked her up and car­ried her to an ambulance which had just arrived as we emerged from the door. In making our way out of the building it was necessary to stop a couple times and move things out of our way Apparently every show case on both the first and second floors were demolished and stock scattered in all directions. When we arrived on the first floor not a form of life could be seen but many bodies lying every­where in pools of blood. It was our im­pression that all on the ground floor had been killed because the bodies be­ing carried out seemed lifeless. On the sidewalk I helped pick up a man with ( Continued on Page 4.) Morton Hill Martel Bailey Robb The Houston boxers have been work­ing out for about two weeks now and are making good progress. The re­mainder of the squad includes some old timers and some new hands. Aligo, the Captain's steward, is a veteran fighter weighing in at 149. Cardinelli at 123 lbs. is a Golden Glove product who shows great promise. Wauk, Wil­son, and Brown are new comers who are showing up well. The Houston wrestlers under the leadership of " Headlock" are showing up very well during their " workouts" at the Y. M. C. A. The squad still has five veterans from last year's team. The Houston had four men in the semi­final of the Cruisers which was not bad for a team which started out with eight men at the beginning of Fleet ( Continued on Page 3.) The tentative matches are: Boxing New Orleans Houston Loss 145lbs Martin 143 lbs Anthony 165lbs Wilson 157lbs Green 175 lbs Hill 175lbs Fortunado 175 lbs Harris 165lbs Inman Heavy Gregory Heavy Wrestling 155 lbs Beckwith or Folta 156 Ibs Pratt 160lbs Fordemwalt 160 lbs Freeman 170 lbs Miller or Piemel Old Ironsides Tell a sailor that there are ten mil­lion stars in the sky and he will be­lieve you; show him a sign reading " Fresh Paint," and he will have to find out for himself. While cruising against British com­merce, Captain Isaac Hull in the 55­gun frigate, Constitution, met Captain Dacres in the British frigate Guer­riere, of 49 guns, about 700 miles off Boston on August 19, 1812. The fire of the Constitution was much more ef­fective than that of her enemy and Hull mansuvered his ship so as to cross the bow of the Guerriere, sub­jecting her to a " raking" fire and en­tirely dismasting her. After 30 min­utes Dacres, utterly helpless, was forced to surrender. This was the first frigate action of the war and the vic­tory did much to encourage the people of the United States. Because of the little damage which she received, the Constitution was nicknamed Old Iron­sides. In 1828 she was to be put out of commission and to be scrapped but was saved from this fate by Oliver Wendell Holmes' famous poem, " Old Ironsides," which aroused public in­terest in her. In recent years she was restored at the Navy Yard, Boston, and since July 1933, has cruised to many ports on both coasts. T HE HOUSTON boxers and wrestlers will meet teams from the NEW OR­LEANS next Wednesday night at eight o.' clock. The place will be the Navy Y. M. C. A. in Vallejo. A good card has been arranged which will include five bouts each of wrest­ling and boxing, and in addition something in entertainment will be offered by Mr. Thor Erickson, superintendent of the " Y."
