Transcript * -.. s. s... o .. s.-.-.... * Volume IV, Number 40 Long Beach, California 16 October 1937 ROBOT LIGHTSHIP HOUSTON WINS IN SMOKER WITH NEW ORLEANS ...... GOOD SAILORS SHOULD KNOW The most expensive golf course in the world is at Gatun Locks, Panama. SCOUTING FORCE FLAG ABOARD HOUSTON All who missed the New Orleans - Houston smoker at the Y. M. C. A. on the night of the 6th certainly lost out on a fine evening's entertam­ment. Not only were there boxing and wrestling, but as a part of the show to start everything and everybody off to a good beginning, there was acts of dancing and singing by some remarkably talented children from the Lodena Edgcumbe Dancing School. It made a few of us set up and take notice of the way showmanship among children has progressed in the last few years. Martel of the New Orleans and Beck­with of this ship opened proceedings in the first wrestling bout. Martel fin­ally managed to throw Beckwith. Folta, Pratt, and Fordemwalt threw their respective opponents from the New Orleans in short order. Freeman won over Bailey on points. But Miller struck a snag in the person of Arm­strong of the New Orleans and was pinned in expert fashion. This gave the Houston four bouts to the New Orleans two. Our wrestling team composed of men in other weights in addition to the above but for whom the New Orleans could not provide competition is getting along in great style. We may lose Pratt and Fordemwalt due to expiration of en­listment, but so far teams from the Dobbin and Richmond have fallen be­fore our team in practice tilts. Lt. ( jg) McDonald, wrestling officer, and coach " Headlock" Wellbourn look forward to a good year in fleet competition. Boxing began with a clear- cut win by Martin of the Houston over Loss. Martin's aggressive style and straight lefts show him to be very promising ( Continued on Page 2.) Running lights are stationary. The an­chor watch has no jewels. It is not safe to smoke a hawse pipe. Barbette is not the name of a girl. Hash marks are not German money. Sick Bay will not be found on the map. A diving chest is not a physical defect. An anchor ball is not a shindig. And two- bitts is not money. Once more the Rambler Ship is go­ing to swing around buoy George for a few months. Vice Admiral Tarrant transferred his Scouting Force Flag to the Houston on Friday morning, 15 October, for a stay of about four months. While there are a good number of new faces in the Flag complement, many old familiar ones are seen about the decks greeting old acquaintances and renewing friendships of old when the Houston once before had the pleas­ure of having the ScoFor Flag. The Blue Bonnet wishes to take this opportunity to give the officers and men of the Scouting Force Flag a cheery welcome and wish them a very happy stay aboard their new flagship. The latest development in " aides to navigation" announced by the light­house service is the robot lightship, and it is announced that a number of these " never fail" warnings to navi­gators will be strung along the At­lantic and Pacific coasts \ vithin the next few years. The new apparatus will replace the obsolete aides now in service and will be one of the greatest innovations ever known to navigation when completed. One such ship has been tested for some time, the St. Clair, stationed in Lake St. Clair, be­tween Lake Erie and Lake Huron. It is a 160 ton craft and is crewless, its apparatus being controlled by radio from land. It is eight miles from the coast, and automatically equipped, much the same as a vessel used as a mobile target ship, the Utah, any of the equipped destroyers, and the old battleship, Iowa, sunk off Panama in 1922. The St. Clair runs itself. Every 20 seconds the ship's bell strikes. In bad weather it could be' so operated for months without the need of a hu­man on board. It gives ships their bearings by radio waves, forms a pow­erful beacon at night and should an electric light fail, an automatic gas light turns on. It has a fog horn that can be operated by pushing a button on shore. If any of the mechanism of the vessel fails, the radio station on shore is notified immediately by the apparatus, and by pushing a button another such gadget is put working, as all apparatus is in pairs. Since the establishment of the St. Clair more than a year ago, another apparatus has been invented and will be placed on the new craft.
