Transcript Volume V, umber 8 SPEEDY BOUTS IN FLEET FINALS The crowd of nearly 8,000 who sat densely packed at navy field in Long Beach on 21 February 1938, w ere under a spell of thrilling scenes as clean- cut spoltsmen matched their skill and strength for the U. S. Fleet championships, climaxing a strenuous six months of rigid training under the guidance of experts, who maintain strict rules for those who seek fleet titles. These men who won belts for the various eV> lnts, are worthy to be a member of any ship's company, it means a great deal of hard work, and the HOUSTON is rightly proud of its champion, E. A. Chick. Boxing Bantam- Verrett ( Richmond) earned close decision over Mescher ( Pensa­cola) . Feather- Potts ( Tennessee) received decision from Barry ( Detroit). Lightweight- G l' i m e s ( California) mauled out a decision over Howard ( Dobbin). Welter- Saxell ( Colorado) was ahead all the way winning decision from Trinkle ( Hull) . Middle- Hipps ( Pensacola) showed punching ability winning decision from Isenberg ( Perry). Light Heavy- Bailey ( Argonne) fin­ishing like a whirlwind took decision over Coggins ( Melville). Heavyweight- Russell ( Borie) expe­rience gave him decision over Gurlaz ( Mississippi) . ( Continued on page 2.) Long Beach, California AMERICAN RED CROSS Quoted below is a letter received by the Commanding Officer from the American Red Cross, High Seas Roll Call. The HOUSTON'S contribution amounted to $ 225.73. Thirty dollars of this was donated by the Ship's Wel­fare Fund, the balance being contrib­uted by the officers and men. All hands who contributed to this worthy cause can feel assured that their contribu­tions will be used for a good purpose. February 7, 1938 The Commanding Officer, U. S. S. HOUSTON, c/ o The Postmaster, San Pedro, Calif. My dear sir: We have recently received through Admiral Hepburn a contribution from the officers and men of the U. S. S. HOUSTON to the 1937- 38 High Seas Roll Call of the American Red Cross. May we, at this time, express our appreciation of the support you have given to our program and it is hoped you will convey to all who participated our very sincel'e gratitude for their cooperation and assistance in making the work a success. Sincerely, Ernest J. Swift Vice Chairman --()--- HUMOR - ? The sick bay wr. s filled with men in pain, The air was filled with groaning. The Doctor was filled with wit again, Good moaning, men, good moaning. 26 February 1938 NAVY WITNESSES FURIOUS BOXING IN SIAM Were a boxing fan of the United States to attend a fight night in Ban­kok, Siam, he would probably get the shock of his life such as a group of U. S. S. PITTSBURGH sailors experi­enced on a summer's night a few years ago. The old coal- burner, one of the ar­mored cruisers famed in song and story, was on her last diplomatic mis­sion prior to being " fed to the lions" of the scrap iron gentry. She was con­veying the Governor General of the Philippines on a good- will tour of the East Indies and Bankok was one of the interesting ports on the long itin­erary. Several sight- seeing parties visited Bankok and a rollicking time was had by all. A chosen few, however, had the privilege of attending the regu­larly scheduled weekly box- fights held in an open air arena on the outskirts of the exotic capital of the Siamese. The American Minister, who was an enthusiast, had been impressed by the ferocity of the Siamese kind of boxing. He had already succeeded in getting the authorities to discard the hand covering which was white- line tightly wound about the knuckles. The Simese fighters reluctantly adopted the Amer­ican glove, but that's as far as they'd go in the matter of softening the sport. Our diplomatic representative taking advantage of the presence of an American cruiser, conceived the idea of staging a few American bouts by way of convincing the blood­thirsty Siames'. l that our system was ( Continued on page 2.)
