Transcript Page 2 THE BLUE BONNET Houston Has Three Cruiser Champions Chick, Hodge, and Harris are now heavy cruiser champions as a result of their bouts last week in Guantanamo Bay. Two more meets to go, the semi- finals on 25- 26 March and the finals on 1- 2 April, before this ship should be able to boast of three All- Navy Champions. As the Houston is scheduled to be in the Guantanamo area during the final two meets every last man aboard will be as close to the ringside as possible to cheer for our fighters. They are certain­ly putting out for us. U. S. S. ARGONNE Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. 11 February 1939. Dear Editor: Thought perhaps a little writeup regarding the Houston's representatives in the Cruiser Finals would be of much interest to you so am forwarding the results to you with the hopes that you may find space in the " Blue Bonnet". The Houston's All Navy Wrestling Champ, Chick, proved to the crowds that he could justly be called just that by defeating Miller from the INDIANAPOLIS in a fast and interesting match by taking this match via the fall route in the small fraction of time of 2 minutes and forty five seconds. Miller vainly tried to put Chick down on the mat but to no avail as the master of his weight easily ended this match with his skill of the game. When the mighty " Major" Hodges entered the ring he was given a mighty cheer by numbers of onlookers who remembered him from his last bout and it is easy to see that he is a well liked fighter. His opponent was the highly claimed future champ from the ASTORIA, none other than Capelli. This bout proved a fast one while it lasted with Hodge wining by a TKO in the second round. Hanis showed the crowd what a real fighting heart he has when he won his bout from Clark of the CHICAGO by a KO in the fourth round. In the first round Harris had his right eye cut pretty badly and it looked as though the fight would be given to Clark but Hanis held that he was all right and proceeded to give Clark a lot of grief during the rest of the fight. The canvas was used as a resting spot for Clark three times before the final knockdown which ended the fight. Immediately after the fight Harris was worked over by the pharmacist's mates who sewed him up with three stitches. This cut will have six weeks in which to heal and Harris should be none the worse ° for this when he enters the ring on April 2nd for the Fleet Finals. The Officers and Crew of the Houston should be very proud of these three men and the way they are carrying her name through the Fleet. Much credit must be given to " Archie" Arsenault for the thorough way he handles his men. Letters from members of the Houston to these men would certainly cheer them lots while they are away from their home, which they sure will be glad to get back to. Well, hope you don't mind me writing this article and hope you can use it. Your old shipmate, Steve Sivak Jr. SK1c. President Boards Ship At Key West President Franklin D.
