Transcript Volume V, Number 6 Long Beach, California 12 February 1938 Chick Meets San Diego Force Champion Abraham Lincoln Sixteenth President Feb. 12, 1808 - Apr. 15, 186/ t Today is the birth date of one of our country's greatest men. Let us re­call for a few minutes the not too well known events by which fate or chance seemed to guide his destiny. In accordance with the customs of the time Abraham, after his 21st birthday, left the home of his father, Thomas Lincoln, to make his oWl'l way in the world. For two years he en­gaged in varius pursuits such as building a flatboat, in company of others, and conveying a cargo of fun and produce from Beardstown, Ill., to New Orleans. After this voyage he returned to New Salem, Ill. Shortly after his return an election was held, one of the election clerks was ill and unable to be present. One of the clerks, who was also the local schoolmaster, in searching for a colleague, asked Lincoln if he could write, as that was the main qualification for the job. Up­on assurance that he could Lincoln was immediately induced into office. After the election Lincoln went to work in the store of a Mr. Denton Offute as a clerk and spent much of his time studying English grammar, having borrowed a text book from the schoolmaster. In March, 1832, Lincoln, when 23 years old, announced himself a candi­date for election to the State Legis­lature from Sangamon County. The election of candidates to this office did not occur until August, and in the meantime Governor Reynolds, direc­ted General Neale of the Illinois Mil­itia to organize six hundred volun­teers of his brigade for military duty Water, Water, Everywhere In the old days only a few hundred gallons of fresh water were can- ied in our warships, and this water was guarded well aud rationed to the crew with care, : 50 that enough water would be maintained on board for drinking purposes. Salt water was used for bathing, as fresh water was too prec­ious. Today in our navy it is a different story, for enough fresh water is made by the evaporators to care amply for all hands' showers and thirsts. SHIPMATES During the past few years those of us who have had the pleasure to serve on the good ship HOUSTON have seen a lot of men come and go. On the 10th of February when the In­dianapolis came alongside we lost some excellent shipmates. It was a pleasure to have such excellent ship­mates as Admiral Tarrant, his Staff and enlisted personnel on board. Our wish is that wherever they may go success and happiness will follow and that they will always remember that the gangway on the HOUSTON is open to one and all, Always. ( Continued on Palte 4.)

Phillips, A. A. ( Tenn) Heavy Drake, B. K. ( Ind) The San Diego based contingent will meet the Long Beach vessels in box­ing and wrestling. Out of these fights will emerge the all- Navy champions. The battleships- heavy cruisers bouts of two weeks ago gave the Heavy Cruisers two positions out of eight on the wrestling team and four out of seven on the boxing team. Incident­ally, this year is the first year which the Heavy Cruisers ever beat the battleships in boxing. Following is a summary of the men who make up the Long Beach team: Chick, champion of the 118 lb. class wrestlers of the battleships, cruisers, repair ships, and aircraft carriers based at San Pedro, and pride of the " V" Division aboard our good ship Houston, will try his wares against San Diego's chosen one in this class. When he goes out there to the center of the mat, with him will go the hopes and best wishes of all haoos aboard. The meet will take place in the near future at the Navy Field, Pico Land­ing, Long Beach.
