Transcript Page Four SPORTS ROWING The pulling whaleboat crew has been out nearly every morning and evening for the last two weeks, in preparation for the all- fleet race to­day. The coach says he's sure they won't come in last, and they will show the Marblehead that the Houston is out to beat them and will keep try­ing until they do. BASKETBALL Our team won last Saturday from the Pecos at the " Y" gym 32 to 24. The Pecos was greatly improved since our first game with them and it was nip and tuck for the first half. The Houston passing attack improved as the game progressed however, and went on to win by a comfortable margin - 10 more points towards the Admiral Yarnell Cup. BOXING A boxing contingent from the Hou­ston participated in the British War Relief Party held at the Santa Ana Turf Club in Manila. Men competing were Harrell, 7th Division, and __~. L.. L. tUJLXa, C Di, nsion. Although bGth men lost their bouts, they put up a good fight, and deserve a hand of thanks. When questioned, they passed the fight off lightly, but Oh, how they raved about the free banquet they were given. BASEBALL A much improved Houston team played the Blackhawk last week- end and went down after a hard struggle 5- 1. Early in the game the Houston was leading but due to the difficulty of playing on week- ends after being at sea during the week, and some costly errors, the team finally suc­cumbed. The team looked good though and has possibilities - keep up the good work. ...... The Tennessee father was intro­ducing his family of boys to a visit­ing Governor. " Seventeen boys!" exclaimed the Governor, " And all good Republicans, I suppose?" " All but one," said the father proudly. " They're all good Republi­cans but Jimmie, the little rascal, he got to readin'." .. I • If you can kiss the mistress never kiss the maid. THE ICE BOX This column is allotted to suggestions from YOU- suggestions on how to improve the appearance of the ship, make it more comfortable for yourself and your shipmates or even something to improve our battl~ efficiency. Put all contributions in the Blue Bonnet's ICE BOX. located in the messing compartm. ent. Letters must be signed. but names Will not be printed if so desired. .' 1'. HISTORY OF HOUSTON'S AIRCRAFT INSIGNIA TO THE EDITOR: To cast a little more light on the much discussed meaning of our plane insignia, the following information is passed on from the records on file, for which the Unit does not accept responsibility: " The Insignia was created in 1933 at the instigation of F. A. Kimmons, A. M. M. 1/ c, who was later transferred to the Naval Air Station, Anacostia, D. C., and designed, or written, by a Chinese graduate of Oxford Univer­sity in collaboration with a Chinese graduate of Cambridge University. " The color first used was black, but when approved by the Bureau of Aeronautics in November, 1933, as a di tiuguislring mark of the Unit's Asiatic service, the colors used were black on orange yellow." The colors now used are black on lemon yellow. " There are about sixty different pronunciations for this character but the Shanghai dialect, which i~ accepted by this Unit is " Na YOI''' meaning " a bird which can fly" or as sometimes translated " a bird that flies when it wants to". J. C. REAS, Y3/ c. TO THE EDITOR We all know that there is an annual athletics competition, but we can never find out where the Houston stands with respect to the other ships, nor our accumulated points for the year. I believe that the crew's inter­est in sports would increase if a poster or chart of games played and accumulated points won would be posted somewhere, say in the Gun­nery Office or on one of the bulletin boards in the mess hall that is not being used anyway. Who knows, it might even cause some of us to take an interest and go out for a sport ourselves. - All- American, 5th Div. TO THE EDITOR Why can't we have some printed Ship's Stationery provided at the THE BLUE BONNET writing desks? I know of one ship, the Lexington, that every month takes a certain amount of money out of the Ship's Welfare Fund and prints up a batch of stationery for the use of all hands. Such a service would make the Houston seem more like home, would make for a more friendly atmosphere on board, and would be very much appreciated by everybody. - J ohhny Inkslinger, F Div. / BOOK REVIEW TO THE EDITOR There are some fine books in the library, but it seems that only one tenth of the crew ever stop in for a chat with Albers. Two of the finest books that I have run across in the library are by John Gunther - " Inside Europe" and " Inside Asia". " Inside Europe" tells the intimate stories of Europe's leaders and will make you able to understand the European situation much better. " Inside Asia" will give you many surprises, including the inside story of President Quezon, also Japan and the Far Eastern situation. Why not drop around, and find out for yourself? - J. E. D., G Div. .' 1'" ( Continued from page 3) his paw and does not bear a grudge. He will not hurt you unless he is hungry or wounded or frightened or annoyed or vicious. The Lion is some­times described as cowardly and mean because he does not care to be shot. Some people lose all respect for the Lion unless he devours them instant­ly. There is no pleasing some people. The HIPPOPOTAMUS is fat and good- natured. He has seven wives or a total of 21 tons. Hippopota­muses pass the time floating around and yawning and blowing bubbles in the Nile and the Zambesi and the Limpopo. They think that nothing else matters. They have primitive minds because they live in such awful places. They have no clavicles and care less. Hippos like fun. They love to submerge and reappear in un­expected spots. On the way up they will bite a chunk out of your cata­maran or canoe. The Hippopotamus is the largest living nonruminating even- toed ungulate mammal, and what does it get him? These ani­mals reminded the Ancient Greeks of a Horse, so they called him the River Horse. What a horse reminded them of is unknown.
