Transcript Volume VII, Number 1. Navy Wins At Poughkeepsie I T HAD been figured out by the dopesters that the race this year was between the two West­ern boats, California and Washington. All the Eastern boats were to go a­long just for the ride. But something went wrong there for the Navy took the lead at the halfway mark and then was never headed. Buck Walsh, Navy's crew coach at the Naval Academy, fell a day before the big race and so in­jured his spine that he was confined to the hospital. The entire Navy crew visited their coach at his bedside and vowed that they would bring the ba­con home if it killed everyone of them. Well, they did it. Not conceded an outside chance they rowed the race of their lives and crossed the finish line ten feet ahead of California. Wash­ington finished a bare third. The race was a fast one. A course record was established by Navy whicp will undoubtedly stand for a long time. The old avy Fight car · ried her sons to another victory. We feel proud to be able to say th., at we are a part of that Navy. Nice Work Navy! ( From the San Fran. Cronicle.) " THE boys of the U. S. S. Houston, anchored off Mare Island, are after me good and proper for writing that Navy didn't do so much ( Continued on Page 2.) Mare Island Navy Yard Fourth of July Approaches MONDAY is the Fourth. Firecrackers, brass bands, lemon­ade, soda pop, picnics, baseball games, and foot races are the or­der of the day. THE Houston finds it­self this year spending the 4th in the Navy Yard. Last year we had the good fortune to be the guest of Astoria, Oregon. They showed us a great time. In Vallejo we have most of our families with us. If there is any celebrating done we almost always like to have those who are closest to us around. On the 4th many acci­dents will occur- mostly automo­bile crashes. Firecrackers will start fires and probably injure some chidren- no sailors, of course. We hope none of our complement will be casualties on this day. Changes In Officer Personnel Sr CE the 28th of May there have been twelve changes of officer personnel. Ensign Quacken­bush started it by leaving for a de­stroyer. On the 31st he was followed by Ensign A. V. Ely who went to Pensacola. Among the aviators Lieut. ( jg) A. G. Dibrell and Lieut. ( jg) P. E. Emrick were detached on the sixth and seventh of June respectively. Lieut. ( jg) W. C. Jonson arrived on the sixth to fill the vacancy and on the 11th, Lieut. ( jg) F. M. Slater arrived. ( Continued on Page 4.) 1 July, 1938. Early Flags Show Originality BEFORE the revolu­tion against England, the colonists flew the British Union Jack as their flag. It was a similiar flag to the pres­ent " red ensign" of the British Mer­chant Marine but had a colonial de­sign added to it. During the conflict the Continental Army flew four main flags of varying design. The Bedford flag consisted of a mailed arm with a short sword with this motto " vince aut morire" on a scroll. Oddly enough this flag was designed by the British for their use. A second flag almost i­dentical to the present flag of the state of Connecticut was first used at Prospect Hill near Boston. The Philadelphia Light Horse Troop flag was of yellow silk 40 inches by 30 inches with the letters L. H. worked in the elaborate shielf and rosette arrangement. Below the pattern was a motto scroll. ' Ihis flag first symbolized the thirteen colonies by 13 blue and silver stripes in the upper left corner. The flag with seven red and six white stripes and the crosses of St. Andrew and St. George in the blue field of the canton was used both by the Army and the Navy. There were many other flags used for short periods of a very revolutionary composition or emble­matic of the patriotic fervor of the bearers but the above were the four most universally used.
