with Ryan when he got him down.
" Little Andy" Anderson, the fighting
marine, downed Martin of the C& N
in 1 min. 4 sees. The last match was
another fast one, Shoemaker, M div.,
putting Coats, 4th div. on the deck
before Coats knew about it. The Army
band serenaded the Anchor Watch as
it rigged the boxing ring.
The boxing was refereed by Ens.
Ely, and judged by Lts. ( jg) Dibrell &
McDonald, and CBM Dutton. Seconds
were Adams, in one corner and Harris,
Pvt., in the other, assisted by Mahl
and Martin of the first division and
others. Headlock was the announcer
The first bout was a lightweight,
with Houston, 1st div. and Kohler of
the H& E. Houston was plainly the better
man and several times displayed
excellent sportsmanship by not murdering
Kohler when he had him in the
ropes. Houston allowed the lad to go
through all three rounds and took
the decision at the end. Nice going
Houston. The next was between Christensen
of the 2nd and Crow of H& E.
Also a lightweight bout, the boys
showed plenty of spirit and sl: ilI. Crow
was quite flashy while Christensen
was reserved until the time came and
he cut loose to stop the rushes of the
E div. man. The third round was fast
and furious and ended with Christen-

sen winning a decision. Next we had
Wishard of the R div. and Dalton of
the B. Wishard was a good bit rangier
and taller than the boiler room
sailor, having thel advanitage over
him. Dalton was full of fighting spirit
a. nd got under the other fellow's
guard for some well registered hits.
Wishard won a decision. Next on the
card were Haratyk of the Sand
Teschnor of the F. Teschnor led off
with a few well directed left jabs
that made the lad wonder what he had
run up against. They had a few clinches
the latter part of the first and
the first part of the second rounds
but as the secOl, d got underway they
got together on the port side of the
ring and had a slugging match that
has been unequaled in the bouts to
date. It left both lads so tired that in
the third round they held each other
up in the ring and exchanged a few
when the opportunity came along. The
final bout was between Pierce of the
A and Dalton of the third. Pierce took
some that seemed like a mule kicking
him in the jaw and sat down a couple
of times. He was on the deck about as
often as he was on his feet. Some sort
of will power or spirit kept the lad
in there going till the end of the third
round when the two sat down to have
the gloves pulled off and hear the decision
of the final bout of the Interdivisional
boxing matches. It was the
end of some mighty good bouts and
those who worked hard to get them up
had something they could be proud of.

It seems that a certain Chief Boatswain's Mate, namely
Dutton, is about to change his rate to Chief Commissary
--' StewarQ. Ire as faken verthe-- duty of supplying the
CPO Mess with food for the canine element. At the sug-.
gestion of frolicing Proimos, CBM, and Shaw, CMM, Dutton
returned to the ship with a box of Dog Biscuits. They
were to grace the plate of Franklin, CWT, and sure enough
they were there the next day. Proimos made a speech to
the effect that the Doctor had advised no feeding of pork
during our stay in the tropics, and so the biscuits were
in order. That seems to have aroused the ire of the water-
tender and Proimos said he thought he'd jump over
the table. It all started with Franklin and Proimos calling
each other by the names of ' Poochy' and'Sniffer',
respectively. It ended when the CPO messcooks cleaned
up the mess and the biscuits went to the pantry. There
Powell, the marine dish washer, ate eight of them thinking
they were a sort of cookie. Ab JUt that time Proimos
came looking for them and the mf.. rine would not believe
he had eaten dog food. It was on, y after the chief went
and got the box and showed him the label that he really
believed it was dog biscuits instead of fancy cookies he'd

Still suspicious. It's funny how we sit here night

she'll wake up in time to thwart me again - Careful HA!
