Transcript who is apparently the number one radio commentator out here. It may be he that you hear on your broadcasts from Manila* We have a very good Chaplain aboard, and I have gone back to Church the two Sundays that I have been on board* I have enjoyed it very much, as he preaches a right good sermon* It is a right unusual setting, particularly if there are a lot of Mohammedans paddling around in the water nearby* Yesterday I played golf with a man out of f29 on board* We went out to the Manila Country Club, it was a very good course and the whole afternoon cost only about one dollar, so I feel that I can afford it as often as I'm able to get away* The most popular sport or rather pastime in Manila is the Jai Alai games that are staged every night, and a lot of the people have been out there* I ha ve been getting along pretty well so far with my job. I have a great deal to learn, and most of my time so far has been spent at paper work of one sort or another. I still havenft learned a great deal about the p&ant, but hope to be able to spend more time on tha t end of things in the near future. Ifm also running the movies aboard, and that is a pretty tough job, trying to satisfy the demand for good ones. Almost everything that we get out here is over two years old, and it is just about impossible to have a good show every night* Last spring the ship was spending most all of its time in Manila and there are so many men on board that it could afford to pay $15 a night to rent movies from the commercial circuit ashore. That got ev rybody accustomed to a lot better movies than the Navy circuit can give them. I hope that your trip is a pleasant one, and that it will not be so hurried that you are all tired out. I know it will be a lot more enjoyable than lat year's for Mother. Please give Mary my best wishes and hopes that she is going to find things to her likiAg at the University. I know that she is going to do well there. From Frances letters the two of them seem to be getting along very nicely, and Larry is developing awfully fast. Its already hard for me to picture him doing the things that she describes*
