Transcript Page 4 Happy Hour ( From Page 3.) 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 as before. 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- Case Of The Dog Biscuit THE BLUE BONNET 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. A Sailor Thinks U. S. S. Houston- 4- 16- 38- 800. That the first men of European stock to set foot on Hawaii were Spaniards who were shipwrecked off Kona in 1527. * * * f That the U. S. assumed the Hawaiian national debt of four million dollars in 1898 and Hawaii was created a Territory of thp. United States. * * * * That Hawaii, " the melting pot of the Pacific", is the outstanding labratory of racial assimilation in the entire world. Here Chinese, Koreans, Japan­ese rub elbows with Filippinos, na­tive Hawaiians, Portuguese and mem­bers of other Eu.. ro, pean countries. ... Hawaiian Hula ( From Page 1.) Did you watch the dancers hands? Weren't they expressive? Or did you watch their hands? All in all it was a great show, and the Houston wishes to thank the chamber of Commerce of Honolulu for making possible these Hawaiian acts aboard our ship. 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 been consuming. " Why did I ever pick her up? ? Dumb, that's what I am. But she worked on my sympathy. Believe it or not, Beneath this-- rough exterior there beats a.> heart. .0£ • ~ Ha ! Patience is being rewarded. Her eyes are closing­hmmm. Still suspicious. It's funny how we sit here night after night - she's watching me - I apparently taking no notice. I've been unsuccessful up until now - I've tried every approach - but no. Just as soon as I think I've got her, she slips through my fingers. But tonight .. Maybe if I take it slowly - you know, as if I'm just getting an ashtray - hmmm. She's breathing evenly e­nough to be asleep - well, just to make sure - she's so blame tricky - I'll wait a few seconds or so - not a movement - wheww! The closer I get the more I know she'll wake up in time to thwart me again - Careful ­HA! I'VE GOT HER! Struggle on you pest. The place for a cat is outside - IF you can find the right approach." - The Log.
