Martin beat Bob Sterl­ing, giving such a good show that it was rematched for the following Fri­day evening- another decisive win for our boy Martin. The bout Hodges vs Frietas was called due to Major's sickness, a postponement being effect­ed until Nov. 4, when they meet at the Wilmington Bowl. Bob Sterling was, incidentally, Martin's first left­handed opponent. On October 28 Holton fought Wayne Penn. It was a clean KO on Penn's part. It is wished that the ship's company realize Holton fought his best fight so far. He won each round up to the one fatal punch which laid him low. Arsenault, the trainer, says, " Holton out- fought and out- boxed his man up to the one fatal punch. All credit to Wayne Penn. Any mistake in that bout was my own." Buddy Adams fought a rematch with the boy he beat at the Olympic Stadium, Julius Barney. Bud lost a very un­popular decision, he seemed to take every round. Monday, October 31 at Santa Ana, Martin lost the best fight of his life to Fernie Backa, 1937 Examiner Golden Gloves Welter Champ in the main event. Also our old standby, Aligo, fought a middle- weight, Sam­my Walker, winning every round. What a man, 30 years old, going up one class in weight to show up and decisively beat a young and fresh opponent.

A submarine is a length of sewer pipe sawed off to suit and fitted with various and sundry gadgets for mak­ing war. The Bureau of Navigation and civilians call them submarines; the Navy calls them pig boats and the guys what serves on them call them D- X- 21- 00 and So's. WHO DO SUBMARINES MAKE WAR ON? They sneak up on an unsuspecting ship and fire a torpedo into her like an Indian ambushing a stage coach. Most submarine men are born in the after battery rooms of submarines in New London, Conn.; that's why they call them New London Indians. WHAT DOES A SUBMARINE LOOK LIKE? On the outside it looks like a very big five cent cigar only smells much worse ( inside). It has two steel masts which run up and down except when they are needed and then the engin­eers lay it on the electricians and the electricians blame it on the engineers. There is also a little pea- shooter which in peace time is used for lean­ing on and resting purposes by the clean dungaree league ( deck force) while the engineers are down below slaving away on their rock crushers. And then there is a little bridge which looks like a Roman Chariot with the wheels knocked off and about fifteen square feet of air conditioned deck space. ( Continued on Page 2)
