Transcript Page Four THE BLUE BONNET USS Houston- 3- 23- 35-- 800 ATHLETICS BOXING SHORE DUTY BOWLING The bowling team has not had any matches lately but the boys are in good shape now and from some of the scores they have been marking up their next opponents will not find the going easy. two years. At another time, for a period of one year eight months, he was Commander of the Special Service Squadron. It is with deep regret that the offi­cers and crew of the Houston see Vice Admiral Campbell and his staff leave the ship and we wish both him and his staff pleasant tours of duty in their new assignments. --* 0*-- Certain . African tribes require that a man to be eligible to marry must be able to run, jump, swim, and fight. These items evidently are listed in the order of . their importance. - Salvo. --* 0*-- A writer says that marriage does not prevent a woman public speaker from pursuing her career. On the con­trary, it means that she has provided herself with a permanent audience. placed on the list in accordance with previous instructions have been plac­ed and ' will be retained thereon. The service record of each man who submits a request to the Bureau is carefully checked to determine his actual amount of continuous sea ser­vice. The man's name is then added to the Bureau's list for the locality or localities requested in the order of precedure determined by his length of continuous sea service. When a vacancy for a man of his rating occurs at the station which he has requested, the man in that rating who has the longest period of sea service is ordered to fill it. After submitting his request a man must wait until ' all men on the list for that locality, having more continuous sea service than he, have been ordered ashore. The present practice of the Bureau is to transfer chief petty officers, ex­cept chief radiomen, chief pharma­cist's mates, and those on recruiting duty, from shore to sea and vice versa in June and July annually. This practice will · be departed from only in urgent cases. The length of tours of shore duty indicated in the last column after each rating applies only to men on regular shore duty billets. The tour of recruiting duty for all ~ atings will continue to be as provided in Recruit­ing Circular Letter 63- 64. --* 0*-- ADM. CAMPBELL RELIEVED --* 0*- ­SPLIT ESSES Although the boxing season is over there are a few of the really serious members of the ship's team to be seem every day working hard in the ' midship mess hall, and it seems that now is the right time to start build­ing up that strong team the Houson is going to have in the field ne xtsea­son. If one were to judge by the action furnished l'l few weeks ago, this ship shall not be wanting in this particular sport. Despite the. fact that the wrestling squad is not working at present, some of the more ambitious members of the squad. are managing to keep in some sort of shape, just waiting until the call is sounded for regular train­ing. WRESTLING Post, AOM2c,, is now on the Indian­apolis and says he likes it quite well. Burmester, ex- SK3c, is now a hap­pily married man on the outside and doing swell. Ken Kessler is now in Long Beach with the Navy Magazine and hopes to see you- all around once in a while. Ken, you will remember, was very helpful in getting the Blue Bonnet in circulation after its Chinese death. --* 0*- ­NEWS OF FORMER SHIPMATES Others of you may have observed the funny Chinese character adorning the left breasts of our pilots. This is a Houston insignia approved by the Chief of Naval Operations for use by the Houston as a special insignia. It was designed by a Chinese student and translated into plain lingo means " the bird that flys when it wants to." Incidently it may be mentioned that our CAMM on becoming the possessor of a new Chrysler Airflow made a test run and learned frbm the arms of the law that passing other cars on the right via filling station drive­ways was costly fun. --* 0*-- Latour: How about this, Jew, is­n't it the best drink you ever looked at?

The hitting was excellent, with Slough leading with 4 hits in 5 trips to the plate. The shortage of moundsmen was felt again, for although Johnson went six innings without trouble, one man cannot be expected to do all the mound work. The game was scoreless for five innings, when the Chester scored twice; Kennedy then going in to re­lieve Johnson but due to difficulty in finding the old plate, he was chased soon but he did poked out a sizzling double and scored the Houston's first run. The fielding was good as a whole and with much needed practice there should be some good games in the offing.
