Ex. 5 And when the stars blink and go blind, And the tempest shriek and frown, Down on her knees in tears you'U find. The proudest girl in town. Many a fine wife of a sailor hus­band has a lonely time when the ship sails away on a cruise or to another port. Some good clubs have been or­ganized to provide recreation and un­derstanding fellowship for the wives and families of the service men. Girls who visit them will receive a hearty welcome, and find congenial interests. The following two are sponsored by organizations of recognized standing, and married men are encouraged to bring them to the attention of their wives. Navy Wives Club, under the aus­pices of Service Men's Club, Fourth and Pine Streets, Long Beach. Meets each Tuesday evening at 8: 00 p. m. Cards, sewing, and refreshments. Coo. vered dish dinner once a month. Res­tI'icted to enlisted men's wives in good standing. Dues 25 cents per month. Mrs. Cutshaw and Miss Upham, spon­sors. While Away Club, Young Women's Christian Association, 6th and Pacific Streets, Long Beach. Meets Thursday afternoons at two o'clock. Sewing, reading, group singing, social activi­ties, refreshments. Restricted to en­listed men's wives in good standing. No charge. Miss Newby, sponsor. WIVES.

LIBRARY EWS The ships library is now open and books are again available for issue. We are sorry that the library had to be closed for the past ten days, but, it will be of interest to note the large number of books turned in during the inventory period. Many of these books had been loaned to men during the past six months and had remained in their custody, while their shipmates had no chance of reading them due to the fact that they were not return­ed to the library for circulation. Many books were discovered hidden behind others in shelves, etc. All hands are requested to cooper­ate with the Librarian by turning books in just as soon as they have fin­ished reading them. In this, you will be giving your shipmate a chance to secure good reading material. Don't leave books lying around the com­partment where they are liable to be lost or destroyed. Just remember that the book you have may be the book someone else is looking for in the lib­rary. The ship has many good volumes in its collection of both fiction and non­fiction, but, there are a number of volumes which dwell on the same ub­ject, such as, mystery etc. An effort will be made during the Navy yard overhaul period to exchange these for newer books, and books of wider vari­ety in meaning. There is still a number of books checked against men in the various divisions of the ship. All men having books belonging to the library should return them at their earliest oppor­tunity. Some of these books are car­ried as title " B", and to avoid em-barassment by waiting for a formal invitation to return them, lets turn them if) now. class. On A. A. gun No. 2. both pointer and trainer groups, Nickel H. D., and Stoddard, D. C. and Calhoun, Rand Freeman, H. E., qualified for first class. Both Sgt. Webster, Gun Captain of A.

This is a decided improvement over last year when only one pointer group qualified and they for only " second class, special". J. Haekend., Bdltor. R. C. Ball, Ch. PaT Clark R. W. O'Brlen, 8Hle. W.

By virtue of their excellent perform­ance in our recent S. RB. P. the 1st. Division is now the proud posessor of that famous gunnery cup, " The Rotary Club Cup"; their's to put up for dis­play in their part of the ship until some other gunnery division wrests it from them in S. R. B. P. The 3rd. and 5th. Divisions have each won this cup twice. Although the 4th produced an " E" gun crew their total division score fell a fraction short of the 1st's.

The fortunate man is he who can make circumstances conform to his temperment, but the twice favored in­dividual is the one who can suit his temper to the circumstances that con­front him.
