Transcript THE 3LUE BONNET -: THE BLUE BONNET :- JANUARY 25, 1936 Rl'cl'ived and towed board in Record Time. HOUSTON SCHEDULE, SECOND ROUND, SERVICE BASKETBALL LEAGUE ,. .. .11. ON THE RIFLE RANGE To achieve success one must usual­ly risk failure. Failure does not hurt so keenly if we know we have given the best we have toward success. HAVE YOU, completed your course for the next higher rating? During the past week the results of the Rifle firing were very en­couraging. Of the thirty- four men to fire, seventeen qualified for Marks­men. The Marksman course is fired at a range of two hundred yards with a 120 out of a possible 150 being nec­essary to qualify for marksman. ivluch credit is due to the Marines whJ a sisted in coaching. The men who qualified are as fol­lows: 1st. Division- ll men fired the course. Andree, F. R. Sea2c. 13" Ada, ms, W. L. Sea1c. 127 Acuto, J. Seale. 124 Barron, J. Sea2c. 121 Mel'S, R. L.

All games are to be played on the Navy YMCA court in Vallejo, and it is expected that our up and ~ oming team will receive lots of the old HOUSTON support. Since all games are in the evening, it is felt little difficulty will be found for those desiring to see our boys in action. Thursday night the HOUSTON five took the court in Vallejo High Gym facing the Mare Island Apprentices, a reputedly strong squad in local cir­cles. The Apprentices were top... heavy favorites at game time, and did bear out pre- game predictions during the first half for the lead changed several times, with the yard men threatening to break loose continually. The HOUSTON boys started slowlv and cautiously due mo tly because of unfamiliarity with the court. Being almost overcautious, they warmed up slowly, hitting theil' usual fast pace late in the half. Willmuth and Mustain gave - a stel­laI' exhibition of good defensive play during the first half, their good work leading the rest of the squad to turn back repeated rallys of the opponents. The econd half started with the HOUSTON five clicking and oon they broke away from the Apprentices who had held them to a 17 to 16 score at the end of the first half. The Kennedy, Willmuth and Stod­dard combination worked well now with the score mounting steadily un­til the end of the game. Jones and Ulrey worked well too, forcing the Apprentice to attempt their scoring well out from the basket. High scoring honors were pretty equally divided between Willmuth- 16 and Kennedy- 15 for the HOUSTON while Bryton of the Apprentices scored 15. The final score was HOU ' TON 38 Apprentices 29. Houston Hoopmen Take ' l'hriller From Apprentices BASKETBALL Soon the shell trays were being swung aboard, loaded with bright and ' hiny projectiles, this the result of two weeks touching up by members of the gunnery department. In exactly two hours the la t shell was on deck and in two hours more the last shell was stowed and secured in it's proper place. Our gunnery divisions have once more demonstrated their ability and initative in doing their job well. Not a single accident, to mar their splendid work, occurred. Well done, Gunnery Department. .11 .. * * " DRY · DOCK" * De.. pite thl they alway. Turn to with a will And Soon the do. k R.... mble. a great mill.
