A Short Story by Gus
Standing in line- you were always
standing in some sort of line. It
had been " take your place in line,
sailor" or " fall in" since the very
first day. Youthful rashness suffered
but gradually it had to give in to
such things. Yet somehow, it was
different this time.
An authoritative voice stabbed at
him from the side. " Move lively
there, ' Peaches'."
The pink in his cheeks glowed
deeper as seething feelings bubbled
up dangerously close to the surface.
How he hated that name. When
w uld they stop treating him like a
kid? He hated his pink " spanked"
skin and the colorless fuzz which
met his fingers when he tested his
face for an excuse for shaving. But
what burned him up more than anything
else was the " baby" in his
mother's letters. He was still " baby"
to her, she said, no matter how old
he got. Wouldn't his buddies like to
get hold of that? They'd be riding
him worse than ever.
The line was moving. This was
his chance to prove he was grown up.
He had lied about his age, an added
year, on the day he had yielded
to the glowing promises of the recruiting
posters. But he had felt
years amass themselves on his shoulders
and a new born importance
burst upon him as if he had shed a
chrysalis and emerged into another
world- so he suffered no qualms concerning
this trifling bit of equivocation.
He couldn't escape the curse

WRESTLERS READY FOR MEETS
When one o'clock rolls around on
the afternoon of 26 November the
Houston squad will be ready for the
Pensacola mat artists so coaches
Wellbourn and Butler assure the
team's followers. Last year the Pensacola
took five out of eight boutsit
being the only meet we lost in group
The squad has been working out
steadily both on shore and aboard
ship. Two meets, one at the A. A. U.,
competitions and the other with the
Inglewood Elk's Club, show that the
boys are shaping up into good form.
If injuries can be kept down our
team should have every weight represented.
Let's show that the ship
appreciates the constant workouts of
the Houston teams by attending their
contests with the other ship. It
helps give that extra " Umph" needed
sometimes. .., ..
