HOUSTON SAIL BOAT CREWS WIN The past two sailing races the HOUSTON has taken first place des­pite the fact that there has been little practice on the part of the crew. They have formed the best habit that of winning every race. The first race was the closer of the • two. The HOUSTON crossed the starting line with the gun but due to light airs and improper trim of sails dropped to eighth place. A new and better trim of sail was tried and by that time the Long Beach break­water was reached, had closed to fourth place with only the Portland, Vincennes, and Minneapolis ahead of her. After rounding the breakwater the HOUSTON and Portland follow­ed similar tactics trying for the windward position, the HOUSTON won and rounded the other end of the breakwater in the lead for the home stretch. This lead was main­tained with considerable difficulty but at the finish line three boats finished within thirty seconds of each other: ­HOUSTON, Minneapolis and Port­land. The second race the HOUSTON crossed the starting line again with the gun making good headway and immediately took the lead. The HOUSTON drew steadily ahead ap­proaching the breakwater and round­ed it well in the lead. Again the Portland was the contender not losing any distance and trying the same tactics as before for the windward position and to shorten the original lead, which she failed to do. On the home stretch the Portland was gaining and tried a trick of pass­( Continued on page 4) Long Beach, California. · ; · -::::~ · I:' Perfect Score In Hits For Turret III and Guns 2 and 3 Turret III fired short range practice Friday and made a per­fect score in hits. A hard working turret's crew, excellent pointers and trainel's and Sa­watski's rabbit's foot are the contributary factors. The five inch battery, Guns 2 and 3, Marine guns hit the tar­get every salvo. It seems the marines must have heard of No. 3 gun when the HOUSTON was in the Asiatics, that Mar­ine manned gun, that broke the world's record for firing that type of battery. " E's" are expected for all three as the times were satis­factory. YOUR BOXING SQUAD Realizing that a Ship's Company of over seven hundred men has such a small percentage of persons who actually realize what the team has been doing, we will try our best to set forth a summary of recent events. Sure, you and I see them every day as they shadow box, work the bags, box with one another; but what are they doing away from home? Who knows Major Hodge has beat­en the best amateur welterweights in the district? Jimmy Alden, Nick Miscella, " Non- pareil" Johnny Frie­tas, rage of Southern California, and ( Continued on page 4) 8 October, 1938. O'BRIEN'S LETTER TELLS HOUSTONS EARLY HISTORY We take great pleasure in placing the below letter in the Blue Bonnet. Everyone who has been on the HOU­STON for two or more years remem­bers O'Brien. He was a character irrevocably linked with ' the ship's activities, particularly the BLUE BONNET. The knot and rigging boards on display ab. out the ship were con­structed by O'Brien for the Texas Centennial. They formed the main part of the Naval exhibit there, and at the Centennial's close were re­turned to our ship. All hands congratulate him on making Chief. U. S. S. Penguin Apra Harbor, Guam, M. I., 11 July, 1938. Editor, " THE BLUE BONNET". Dear Sir: It was with great pleasure that I received a large number of co­pies of the " BLUE BONNET" in the mail, just recently arrived on the U. S. A. T. U. S. GRANT. In reading each copy from stem to stern, as is my usual custom, I noted there were a few queries printed concerning data on the early days of the " BLUE BON-ET". In addition there were a few discrepancies in the published data concerning my favorite ship's paper. Even though my files and data concerning the HOUSTON and the " BLUE BONNET" are still in the ( Continued on Page 2)
