Transcript THE BLUE BONNET - ...... SWIMMING - . .... .... All men who possibly can should take advantage of the opportunity to go to the rifle range while we are still in the Yard. If you are a poor shot this will be your chance to learn to shoot correctly, or if you are , good, then you can still improve your abil­ity. It takes an expert to hit a target at 50 yards with a .45 service pistol. Yet " Service Pistol" is just that. It's your weapon and you should know how to shoot it. RIFLE RANGE TENNIS A swimming meat will be held at the Rodman Club Pool on 5 October. Gold medals await individual event winners. The Mare Island All- Service Soft­ball Championship for ships and shore units' will be held starting 2 Oct. There'll be a Houston Team out for the trophy. ..... A swimming meet will be held at will be held on the Mare Island Golf Course starting 28 September. Aspir­ants will compete for two gold medals and a bronze medal. ...... ........ GOLF SOFTBALL.. An elimination type singles and doubles tournament will begin 27 September. Here, likewise, suitable awards await at the end of the long hard road. A motor ride has put a lot of poor girls on their feet. In business, as in baseball, yester­day's hits won't win today's game. About the severest loss any man can sustain is the loss of opportunity. 16 Sept. 1 vs 4 17 2 vs 3 18 1 vs F 19 F vs C 20 1 vs 3 23 2 vs 4 24 3 V8 F 25 4 vs C 26 3 vs C ~ 7 ' j.!. 2 vs F " 30 " 1 vs C ," 1 Oct. 3 vs 4 " .~ " 2 1 vs 2 3' 4 vs F , ' 4'; .. ~ .":". 2 vs C SPORTS Exchange. ~~, '. All baL!

A few games' have already been played, but there are many more to come. The schedule is as follows: ; ' LITTLE THINGS , "' It's the little things that cause big wars. Harry G. Nye, a very clever business writer, puts it this way: " It's the things that don't amount to'a conHnental that amount to a lot, My ' wife, ' was' working a cross­word puzzle. the" other night when I came in,' and she said,' What's a female sheep?' and I said, ' Ewe' ­and that's how, a new war started. You may tell a man that he over­<: harged YO)! $ 31l,~ 170.~. a bill of goods, an'd he'll only la;~ gh; but tell him he had six strokes instead of five on the 13th h~ i~, - and ' he will be sore at you for life. People are just that queer, including you and me. I know a man who has the best store in town, but I never go ne'ar him because his wife once said that shl:! didn't understand how my wife put up with me. I don't myself; but, I don't like to have people talk about · ' it. It's the little things you say or do, OF, that other people say or do, that count in the long run." .. II. Christenson, F. 1c, of the B- Div. was married in Reno Saturday the 7th.? At least that's the dope this columnist picked up. Ship's company again join in wishing this couple all the happiness in the world. Prentice, Sea. 1c of the roaring 4th. Division is anticipating a blessed event in his home? More power to you both and co. n.. g. r. atulations! What B. M. 2c is still trying to dig up $ 20 so he can be married? We hope he finds it. --_ c>~ _-- ..... This column seems to be turning into a marriage and birth statistics affair? "' 1' .. That the ship's barber was mar­r; ed at 3 A. M. Sunday, the 8th., in Yuma, Arizona? The lucky young lady hails from Santa Ana, Calif. and is the former Miss Opal James. The crew wishes them happiness and hopes that all of their troubles are LITTLE ONES. .., .... Non Swimmers It seems that W. · C. Lantz of th~ Q. M. gang put in for an extension of leave but, sad to say, was refused. The gals back in the big town' of Ostego, Oklahoma, must be good at cooking corn pone, etc. or did he really go over th. e. de. ep end this time. Page Four •...• This has not been corroborated, but we have it on pretty good authority that Fowers, F. 1c, is to be married about the 15th of next month. He is reported to have said, " She is a very lucky girl." Mr. Sellers tells us that the men are all doing fine in their qualificat­ion and he hopes to have all non­swimmers qualified before we leave for the Asiatic Station. We hear J. J. Racine is showing form that may develop into a future champ for the Houston.
