Transcript Volume IV, Number 46 * --. s. s... o .. s- ro.. * Long Beach, California 29 November 1937 BOXERS AND WRESTLERS BOWL OVER MINNEAPOLIS Last Friday afternoon in the Ad­miral Leigh Gymnasium our boxing and wrestling teams came through in strong style to win over fighting Min­neapolis teams. As the Minneapolis had previously swamped the Vestal, things seem to be looking up for the Rambler Ship. Maybe there will be a few champions on board after the smoke of the battles clears away. Chick of the Houston in the 118 lb. class was awarded the first bout due to forfeiture by the Minneapolis. There were no entries in the 126 lb. class. Harvey of our ship won the 135 lb. class by taking a fall over Atwood. In the 145 lb. class the bout was given to Halier of the Minneapolis due to the Houston having no entry in this weight. Folta of the " R" Division won by a fall over Sullivan of the Minneap­olis. In the 165 lb. class Fordemwalt of the 3d Division had quite a strug­gle in ekeing out a 2 to 1 judges' deci­sion over King of the Minneapolis. Miller of the Houston won by a fall over Richardson of the Minneapolis in the 175 lb. bout; and Henry lost to Schroeder of the Minneapolis in a surprise fall. This gave us a victory by a score of 5 to 2. Nice work wrest­lers. The boxing team followed closely the example of the wrestling team by going out and taking a 4 to 3 victory over the Minneapolis. The Houston won the 118 lb. bout and the 126 lb. bout by forfeitures; but lost the 135 lb. class and hf: avyweight bouts for the same reason. In the 147 lb. bout Aligo of the Houston outslugged ( Continued on Page 4.) HOUSTON SPONSOR TAKES MARRIAGE VOWS Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Fitzallen Holcombe request the honor of your presence at the marriage of their daughter Elizabeth Adelaide to Mr. Henry Markley Crosswell, Jr. on Saturday evening, the twenty- seventh of November nineteen hundred and thirty- seven at half after six o'clock St. Paul's Methodist Church Houston, Texas - 0- The Capt& in and Officers U. S. S. HOUSTON regret that they are unable to accept the kind invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Fitzallen Holcombe to be present at the marriage of their daughter on Saturday the twenty- seventh of November And so we see by the kind invitation sent to our ship that the U. S. S. HOUS­TON'S sponsor has taken the vows of marriage on Saturday, 27 November at Houston, Texas. The Captain, Officers and crew sincere­ly offer congratulations. Seaman Sam Says: The question why a man blames fate for accidents but takes full credit for a hole- in- one has never been solved. CHIEF PRINTER WHEELESS IN RESCUE ATTEMPT ( As described by the Long Beach " Sun.") Despite heroic efforts of a sailor from the U. S. S. HOUSTON, 6- year- old George LeRosingnol was burned to death in his home at 2115 East Sixth Street at 11 : 20 o'clock last night ( Nov­ember 18). The child's mother, Mrs. Mae Le Rosignol, who was dozing when the fire broke out, escaped. Her frantic calls to her son from the front porch of the burning building brought R. T. Wheeless, the sailor, who resides at 2117 East Sixth Street. As flames poured through the roof and from windows of the three- room house at the rear of the lot, Wheeless ran inside. Only when he was nearly suffocated did he give up his rescue effort, witnesses said. " I could hear the little boy moan­ing, but I couldn't find him in the heavy billows of smoke." Wheeless stated. " I was in the bathroom of my home when I heard Mrs. LeRosifnol crying ' George, George.' I l'an into the building but I couldn't do any good." R. T. Wheeless is a Chief Printer attached to the Scouting Force com­plement at present aboard the U. S. S. HOUSTON. --- 0- CRUISER WHALEBOAT RACES First enlistment ten and twelve oar­ed whaleboat races will be conducted at 1415 and 1500, 3 December 1937.
