Transcript Volume I, Number 10. BASKETBALL By virtue of a 10- point lead gained in the first half, the Chicago captured the Group B gonfalon from the Houston in the final game of the curtailed basketball season, Wednes­day night at Admiral Leigh Gym­nasium. The first ten minutes of the game were played on even terms with close guarding of both teams keeping the score at 4- all. Midway in the first half, however, the Chicago Bull Dogs solved the Ramblers defense and be­gan feeding the ball to McNulty, Chicago pivot man for tip- in shots. Thus at the half- time marker the Houston was trailing 8 to 18. Scoring first in the second canto, the Chicago made a bid to further turn the game into a rout, but a shift of the Houston defense and a more concentrated offense made the contest a dog- fight again. In the closing minutes after frequent personal fouls by both teams, fouls were committed with great frequency. One Houston­ite and two Chicagoans were removed from the melee via the personal foul route. The current Houston quint is re­garded as the best in years. It is indeed unfortunate that of necessity the season is cut short, else, far- reach­ing recognition might be gained. A representative comparison may be reached by considering the showing made in a recent game with the U. C. L. A. 145- lb. varsity squad. This game was won by U. C. L. A. 39- 38 after the Houston Feather Merchants ( second team) had plaed most of the last half.

Due to the whole hearted devotion to duty of all " personnel, the past year has been a very successful one for our ship; the efficiency in Gun­nery has shown great improve­ment, and in Engineering and Damage Control we stand near the top. On departure from the ship at the completion of this cruise last summer the President of the United States gave the ship " Well Done!"; and at the An­nual Military Inspection recently completed, the Division Com- '" mander reported " I consider the Houston presents a ' smart' ap­pearance- the general condition of the ship is Very Good to Excellent." I ~ Let us all enjoy a well earned ': Christmas leave. ", :', G. N. BARKER, Captain, U. S. N., Commanding. ~ CONGRATULATIONS! ! To W. J. English, BM1c, who re­ceived notice of his place as No. 3 on the list for future appointment to Boatswain. Having known " Limey" for several years it is our own par­ticular pleasure at this time to wish him well. Of his success we are certain. December 25, 1938. WRESTLING ' Headlock' Wellbourn's coterie of muscle maulers finished the elimina­tion series in a three- way tie with the Pensacola and Salt Lake City for top honors. Beaten in points only, ' by the Pensacola, the squad weathered four meets. Four Houston men were undefeated. Lead by Chick, All- Fleet Bantam, the unbeaten group also included Butler, Calamitous Coxswain, Fordemwalt, Paladinous Postman and Arthur, Gymnastic Gunner. These men are eli­gible for Fleet Elimination Finals, which will probably be held during maneuyers, a. t Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, late in March. Other members of the squad who did not remain undefeated, but who contributed to the high standing of the Houston in the final tabulation were Drover, Keimel, Miller, and Vassar. Final standing: W L Pct. HOUSTON 3 1 .750 PENSACOLA 3 1 .750 SALT LAKE CITY 3 1 .750 NORTHAMPTON 1 3 .250 VESTAL 0 4 .000 BOXING Houston boxers lost only one match in Cruiser eliminations. By close de­cisions the Pensacola gained the nod, to become the only Houston Nemesis of the short season.. Under the able tutelage of Archie Arsenault, there were three men un­beaten in their class.
