Transcript Volume V, umber 5 * -.. seSe .. 0 .. 5...- 0.. • Long Beach, California 5 February 1938 Chick Goes Up for Fleet Finals Mysteries of the Sea Last week at Navy Field, Long Beach, Chick, our 118- lb. ban ta m­weight wrestler took on and decidedly won a victory over Matherly of the WEST VIRGINIA. He is now up for All Navy bouts, held at the same place, Navy Field, Long Beach. Chick, a good little shipmate, has come up under the careful supervision of " Headlock" Wellbourn, our genial Jimmy Legs, to develop into a mighty smooth matman. If the " powers that be" in such mat­ters are with our little representative ( Continned on Page 4.) pLOUGHING through the ceiling of a vast watery realm, a ship scarce scratches the surface of a world so mysterious and so filled with natu­ral wonders as to be beyond human conception. What lies below our man­euvering at sea? Mountains raise austere heads above most cloud layers, canyons tear huge chunks out of the terrain; yet the floor of the ocean has series of mountain ranges and valleys between that would dwarf these dry land marvels. Printed figures on a chart show the depths of the ocean. On the high seas these soundings run in straight lines; inade­quately few they are like tiny threads on an limitless expanse. More than three- fifths of the globe is covered with water. We can only guess at life and the formations down there in the cold dank chill of the depths. In ancient times and even later, monsters were believed to exist which rendered travel on uncharted waters perilous. These were mainly myths conjured out of minds fed by the superstition and the dread of the un­known. However. many tales have been told of strange huge sea serpents and sea animals seen in modern times by the crew and passengers of various ships. The average person doubts. Yet in this comparatively unknown world there might live such creatures. How can we be sure just because we haven't seen. This is accepted. In tropical waters where dark skinned, pearl seeking na­tives dive to incredible depths ( some­times well over one hundred feet) lurking dangers are ever present. Huge clams, a thousand pounds or more in weight, are ready to clamp shut on a leg or arm. There is no es­cape save for cutting off the seized member. Hideous octupii, man eating sharks, and sudden changes in pres­sure make their life truly a hazard­ous one. The barracuda and the manta ( blanket fish, huge ray, or devil fish) also wreak their ghastly toll. Untold wealth, hid forever from the eyes of humans, and swept by only the gentle bottom currents of the ocean's floor, will lie there until it slowly disentegrates into the limbo ( Continued on Palre 3.)
