Transcript Page Four THE BLUE BONNET USS Houston- 2- 3- 40- 1M SWEEPS SMOKER WITH SALT LAKE CITY - by BUG Adams boxing fame, to a heavyweight championship. The HOUSTON is pointing for a clean winning sweep, but whatever the outcome, all hands may already feel proud of the record of HOUSTO grapplers and leather pushers. " COACH ARSENAULT" SPORT NEWS- ( Continued from Page 1) SMOKER TO ITE HOUSTON'S pride and joy and blue­eyed heavyweight - veteran of last year's Scouting Force finals - will again attempt to scale the pinnacle of In a smoker held on the Salt Lake City, HOUSTO boxers and wrestlers punched and tusseled to a victory which clinched their supremacy among the ships of CruDiv Four. The wrestling team won by a score of 30 to 10, while the boxers also knocked out 30 points, to the Salt Lake City's 5. To start the evening, West, 118 lb. grappler, won his match by default. Chick, next, at 126 Ibs., won his first official featherweight bout of his carrel', having wrestled as a bantam before. He carried on as always, before winning by the fall route in 3 minutes and 26 seconds. Harvey, 135, was pinned in 2 min. 45 sec., although the result was no mdIcation of hi' wrestling aLiiity. The 145 lb. class found Arthur win­ning himself another group champion­ship via the fall route in 3 min. 2 sec. Buttler, the man that we never wor­ried about, provided his own downfall. He was thrown by what is known as a rolling fall, after a game fight. Tough luck old timer; we were all with you. Korich came through with our first win of the year in the 175 lb. class, winning by fall in 8 min. Riechel, heavy, won by default. Boxer Take All But One Among the Houston's scrappy punchers, McPherson, 118 lbs., Strick­land, 126, Aligo, 147, and Adams, 160, won their matches by forefeit. In the 135 lb. bout, Henry Holton, last year's featherweight, stepped up a weight. After having come back from 30 days' leave and without a sin­gle day's workout, he went in to fight the best lightweight in the division. The first two rounds were touch and go. Henry stayinP.;' on top of Duvalan< i. never stopping throwing leather. The last two rounds were fought on noth­ing but heart alone and everyone pres­e.. t saw a lot of that from Holton, al­though he lost the battle. Blackie Hartwick, 175, added a­nother knockout to his record by putting his opponent away in approximately two minutes. Joe Lewdanski proved himself the class of the heavies in CruDiv Four again this year by dropping his man for the count in less than one min­ute of the first round. Two exhibition bouts were fought by McPher on vs. Strickland and Aligo vs. Adams. Members of the squad have long asked for a tribute to the best trainer, coach, and manager that a boxing team could pos­sibly have. For it, one has but to look at the impressive record A. J. Arsenault, EM1c, has built in the last three years. Last year three men were sent to the Scouting Force finals, and two to the All- Navy finals Major Hodge, whom " Archie" trained from the ground up, emerged an All- avy champion, and possibly the best Navy welterweight ever to don a boxing glove. This year Arsenault furnished six out of a possible seven Divi­sion champs from his squad. Each and everyone swears he owes success to " Archie" and his ceaseless efforts to keep each individual in good condi­tion and to improve his boxing style. i Tht: OOXiillj : squ- a... " odd like to see from all hands the same backing and moral support for " Archie" that " Archie" gives the squad. - F. TJB. S. : C I' ... SEND THE BLUE BONNET HOME Dere Maw,- Croozin in this here Hawdet outfit is somepn to write home about, no kiddin. Gosh, this mornin we wuz gv- rn t. hi~ a.\. · . a'y "" 1"...~ tha.~ C. · lf ..... j' i. 4r() u~ i the Island of Hawaii, like we wuz be­in chased by a cockeyed bear. But we wuz fightin a war and these modern wars is kinda screwy anyway. Ha Ha. Gosh sakes, how we pitched and rolled just like a guy with the cat- fever, and some of the third division wasnt askin seconds on the pork chops. I aint seen so much food insulted in all my born days. Why, Maw, you'd think them guys was keepin Lent or somethin the way they by- passed all that nice brown gravy, but the ship was rockin like a cradle and its tuff when the big waves roll us thatway. Us Houston sailors are gonna give them other guys of the Hawdet plenty of competishun tonite in the boxing and rasstlin finals. Gosh, I never seen so many men offen one ship to make the finals. My pal Ski and me will be in there in the heavy weight scrap, and if Ski dont duck when I tell him to it aint gonna be so good. To win a bout ya gotta have a guy like me heavin words of wisdom to keep ya from leadin with your chin and goin horizontal. Me and Ski has fergotten moren that other guy ever knowed about the rock and sock rack­et, and we'll bring home the bacon and let him have the eggs, if ya know what I mean. Ha Ha. Well its a grate life and I guess I'll climb up to my station and see how that war is comin on. I'll send you a pitcher of me holdin a reel coca­nut what hit me on the bean when I wuz corkin off on the beach the other day. It like to woke me up. So long and happy days. Your lovin boy, Gus.
