Transcript * U. 5.5. BOU$ TOB1( Volume I, Number 9. . HOUSTON 30- LOUISVILLE 29 The 1938 edition o- f the Rambler Ship basketball team was presented November 28th at the Admiral Leigh Gymnasium in San Pedro. The occa­sion marked the meeting of the Hous­ton with the Louisville. Victory was heralded for the Hous­ton after a nip- and- tuck struggle, with a final count of 30- 29 deciding the fray. Never at any time in the contest were there more than three points difference in the score, al­though the boys took and maintained the lead from the start. High scoring honors in the game were garnered by Cochrane, rangy center of the Louis­ville who totalled 10 point/!. Houston scoring was evenly divided with all the starting lineup counting at least once from the field. Accuracy of the Houston five from the free- throw line, however, was the margin of victory since the opponents' Kentuckians counted 13 two- point reamers from the field, as compared with our dozen double markers. HOUSTON 34- MEDUSA 29 The second issue of the Houston supremacy dn the hard- wood cO\ lrt, and an indication that the Ra~ ers would be " the team to beat", was un­folded November 30th in a meeting with one of last years' strongest quints, the Medusa. Superiority was clearly shown when at half- time the Medusa was trailing 5- 19. Then fol­lowed a let- down by the Houston, and in the middle of the final stanza, Medusa long - range cannonading sparked by the Kumzak twins, Frank and Joe, narrowed the gap, so that the final gun gave the Houston a mere 5­point advantage, 34- 29.

THE LAST HOUR A Short Story by Gus A whisper of wind from the slowly opened door caused the candle's flame to flicker backward and the lacy ends of drapes to shudder spasmodically. He had opened the door like he always had, timidly, expectant. Even the shadows of the room couldn't quite hide the four poster bed. It loomed to him like some holy shrine. He smelled again that cloying trace of lavender; dainty, old, reminiscent of his mother. Yet he knew that his father was here, too. He could just barely see the portrait with its uni­form and the funny little cap. A thin thread of a voice questioned feebly from the bed, " Is that you, Robert ?" " Yes, mother." " I knew you would come. I have prayed. Come and take my hand. I want to feel you. I want ..." " There, there mother. I'm here. Can't you see I'm holding your hands. I'm home again. Everything is go­ing to be all right." A thankful smile brushed away the drawn look about her mouth as he gently stroked the frail little hands. She allowed herself enough time to muster strength for another question. " Do you like your life in the navy?" He thought a bit before answering. " Oh, yes. I like it fine." He couldn't tell her about the long hours of watch- standing nor how rigid the discipline was. He wouldn't tell her of days on end when you were stuck down in some hole during a bat­tle problem. His answer was best. She needed that kind of an answer. ( Continued on Page 4) December 16, 1938. BOXERS AND WRESTLERS HUMBLE NORTllAMPTON On December 7th a crowd that packed the gymnasium to the raft­ers saw our boxing and wrestling teams scuttle the Northampton's best efforts. When the curtain came down the score stood 28 to 10 in wrestling and 30 to 5 in boxing for the Rambler ship. Chick started hostilities by pinning Culbert in short order. It looks as if our 118 pounder is headed toward another fleet championship. Houston 5 points. Drover met the most experienced man on the Northampton team and did good work in the first few min­utes of wrestling. However, O'Grady soon put on a hold that ended the bout in the Northampton's favor, Houston 5, Northampton 5. Keimel, an up and coming boy from the B division, took Kampa in a little over two minutes. Houston 10, Northampton 5. Arthur had Clark in a bad way during the entire four minutes that the bout lasted. It ended by the fall route. Houston 15, Northampton 5. Buttler, from the main deck aft division, threw everything from fly­ing mares to rolling snakes before easily polishing off Israel in a fall. Here is another boy that looks like championship material. Houston 20, Northampton 5. Fordemwalt decisioned Sinclair in a bout which lasted the entire 12 min­utes. Hous~ on 23, Northampton 5. Miller lost to Sinclair by a fall in ( Continued on Page 4)
