RICE WEARS MORE GOLD It seems there is nothing missing In that historic eastern town Where heros died for freedom Io'ighting the British crown. like New York's skyline It rises maiestic and bold With bright lights and happy throngs Regardless of hot or cold. With subways, elevated ears and taxis Its really easy to see the sil'hts In fact with all the amusements It's kind of hard to stay in nights. Calder Maze Robertson Hennessy, T. W. Marshall R. G.

Norfolk or San Diego But New York is the best of all. Some port. s are fun to visit And some afe not so good But I'd gladly visit all of them U I but only could. NEW YORK, WE GREET YOU Since our arrival in New York Mr. Rice, " F" Division officer made his number for Lieutenant and may now be seen proudly wearing those two broad gold stripes. . Lieutenant Rice is a graduate of the Naval Academy, class of ' 25. Congratulations Mr. Rice. of the " Ice House" went over for the score. With a 6 point lead, lots of beef and confidence the " Mt" crew look­ed dangerous, but the " Fw'd" pig­skin " arteests" took to the air, and soon pushed over two touchdowns on passes, Adams to Ellwood, and Hobart to Adams. THE LINEUP INTERSHIP SPORTS HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR STAY IN HAMPTON ROADS On Sunday afternoon a baseball game was played between two teams made up of the 1st and 2nd Divs. vs the 3rd. and 4th. divisions. A good deal of enjoyment was had, while the 3rd. and 4th. won having the able assistance of several outside players. The 1st and 2nd, not caring to pro­test the unethical tactics, arranged a football game, this time the teams to be picked from the forward crew spaces, in that way eliminating any chance of a protest. The fw'd sailors realized they faced a team picked from the largest half of the crew, but size, weight and numbers held no terrors f9r them. The results of Ph hours play show­ed more man- power forward and the big end of the score, it being 12 to 6. The " Aft" squad scored early in the game, on line plays and short passes, greatly assisted by a " fw'd" fumble on the 15 yard line. Rimmer ..... anxious to get to San Diego, and sub­due the famous Fleet Marine Force, or whatever station they may be as­signed to. King and Williamson seem to think that the climate at Bremer­ton will be more agreeable and have asked for that post. But the rest of the short timers ( sea going) say they have broad shoulders and can take it, are trying for the F. M. F. Last but not least we have the two senior non- coms aboard. that might possibly be trans­fered in this land. I believe they are both used to foreign duty so the wilds of New York don't scare them. The famous Tommie Luck and Ten- percent Webster are the two referred to. The Top- kick is figuring on going out on twenty and Ten- percent is finishing up his second cruise and is therefore more or less quiet in the distinguish­ed company of five " Hash Marks". We wish them both good luck on their new stations and plenty more when they become civilians. One last thing before we fold up and crawl off to sleep the sleep of the just. It is being wondered where the Honorable Harry H. King aquired his taste for donuts. Evidently the O. O. D. dosen't share his enthusiasm. One long hop: " NEW YORK to LONG BEACH". Of Death Battallion BLASTS Between transfers, furloughs and the Marine Canteen there is a deci­ded shortage of man power in the fightipg fifth. One way or another we h" ave managed to struggle along and by the time this goes to press tne biggest majority of the lost sons will be back on the job once more. Leave isn't so bad as they always come back but the transfers is what makes one stop and think. To begin with w~ lost our famous " Dutchman" the . kraut stomper, commonly known as Meyers, he goes to Boston Navy Yard after matrimony and thirty days leave. Another fam~ us Dutch was Miller. Too bad he had to go be­fore he had a chance to see more of New York as I believe that he thoro­ughly enjoyed himself when we were here l! 1st time; Danny's Fourty- fourth Street Club being his downfall. One consolation for him is that his side­kick Johnston is with him and they both go to the famous Great Lakes Training Station at the end of their leave. Their lack of common under­standing at one time made them ques-. tion the usefullness of a taxicab on the well deck. Having ridden in it f~' om the great white way they saw no reason why it shoulden't come aboard with them. We lost several of the new men that came aboard for the late cruise but sorry to state, they were not aboard long enough to know some of their finer characteristics. Upon arrival 0 fthe ship on the west coast we are due to leave Long Beach minus several of the members of our proud clan. Having conquered the mysteries of the floating world which has been their home for the bigl:' est share of two years they are
