Transcript * U. 5.5. Volume I, umber 3. WRESTLING TEAM LOOKS GOOD Last week the boxers received some ; veIl deserved publicity for the show­ing they have been making in ama­teur meets in outhern California. S:: ene of their fistic endeavors while hey are training for their bouts is the starboard side of No. 2 messing compartment. Nothing was said con­cerning the other side of this sea go­ing gymnasium. Every night while the ship is at sea onlookers have seen a mat spread <. ut on the port side, and on it locked in various muscular grips, sweating, heaving men are trying to pin each ocher down. This is the wrestling squad. From the big turnout and the enthusiasm being shown the ship should be well represented in this compartment during the coming com­petitions. When our meets with the rest of CruDiv 4 ( plus the Vestal) start in the latter part of November all hands will see a wrestling team which they can be justly proud of. As it is necessary that watches be frequently rearranged so that all members of the squad get in their workout at the scheduled time other men standing these watches for them at such times deserve special credit too. It is only through their help that a successful team can be built. The following roster of the squad shows that every weight will have a veteran: Chick 118 Bryant, Drover 126 Keimel, Harvey, Livingston 135 Davis, Arthur, Adkins, Owens 145 Buttler 155 Fordemwalt 165 Miller 175 Henry, Vassar Heavy Long Beach, California. NAUTICAL NOVELTY By Lt- Comdr., S. L. Slade, U. S. N. THE CHINESE NAVY Believe it or not- it is less difficult to enlist in the U. S. Navy than it is to enli t in the Chinese Navy. The Chinese Navy is manned main­ly by natives of Fukien Province. This province is on the rugged south­ern coast and is peopled largely by seafaring persons who skillfully nav­igate their clumsy appearing junks through all kinds of weather. The ships of the Navy are small, and range from slow, ancient vessels to swift new ones. China has her own building program and is con­tinually launching some type of Nav­al vessel. Her Navy is maintained for the purpose of suppressing pi­rates and smugglers; and quelling disorders among her own people. All the ships are coal burners, and it is quite a common sight to see several deck hands busily engaged in placing leggings on the main mast on getting underway. These " leggings" are a canvas cover, laced onto the main­mast to protect the paintwork from flying burning cinders and soot. The uniform of the enlisted men is of a lightweight denim, and of var­ious shades of blue; all according to the number of times it has been wash · · ed. It is built along the accepted " sailor" style of clothes. The trou­sers are invariably too short, and usually reach to about three inches above the ankle. The flat hats are alway at least four sizes too small for the wearer. The sailors are very ( Continued on Page 2) 18 October 1938. MORE " E's" IN THE FUTURE Turret III and Guns No. 2 and 3 got their " E's" as all know and as all expected. The " E's" will remain with them until the firing of next year when hash marks are to be ad­ded. The " E's" do improve the ship's appearance. It is said that a man expresses his personality in the color of his socks and necktie. The HOU­STON is now showing its personality with three " E's" on her sides. Not only are they " E's" but they are " E's" of distinction. Turret III is the num­ber one turret of the cruisers and the five inch battery stands second in the cruisers. The short range practice as a whole on the HOUSTON stands out in that there were no casualties in either the main or secondary battery during the whole of the firing and no buzzers were missed by any gun or turret. With such a start it will be easy to go through the gunnery season with hits, high scores, and no casualties. •.... YOUR BOXI G SQUAD Having been to sea for a week for gunnery there was not much oppor­tunity to arrange bouts for the lads ashore. One of our lads, however, Christiansen, fought a boy named Timmy Hill last Friday nite, 3 Oct., to win. The entire go Chriss fairly left- handed hi opponent out of the ring. He might have had a KO in his record in place of a decision, if he'd used that right hand, which he has and a good one. This week Holton meets Wayne Penn, who has , von hi last five or ( Continued on Page 4)
