Battalions of four rifle companies
each and the Marine Corps will make

WHALE BOAT RACES
Thursday afternoon all cruisers
equipped with pulling whale boats will
take part in a race which is scheduled
to start at 1715. Due to the fact - that
the Houston is not equipped with a
regulation whaleboat and it is impracticable
to borrow one, we will not
have an entry in this race. The winning
crew will be presented with the
Chamber of Commerce Trophy, individual
men of the winning crew will
receive appropriate medals.
During the week an elimination
series of ball games will be held between
ships. The Tacoma Chamber
of Commerce Perpetual Challenge
Cup will be awarded to the winner.
bldividuals of the first two teams ( 15
each) will receive medals. This is
something for team to ~: hoot at.

receiving the catcher's signal. Spruell
was also instrumental in nipping a
Chester rally in the fifth when he
caught a runner napping at third.
Eggerter's return to form in the 6th,
when he made a beautiful stop down
third ba e line and doubling at the
plate in the same inning after he had
been unable to get hold of one in three
previous trips to the plate. Koster's
one handed catch of a line drive deep
in left field. Rimmer's surprise when
he was called out on a high one.
Hynes' run producing single in the
sixth in his only trip to the plate.
These are but a few of the outstandin
incidents of a thrilling win. Each
and every man played hard, fighting
all the way. Coming from behind
three times speaks more than words.
We haven't forgot the Chester has
won over the San Francisco, ( the
team which eliminated the Houston
in Long Beach) the strong Chicago
nine and several other cruiser teams.
Score: Houston-- S, Chester- 7.

The Houston's popular Navigator
and Athletic Officer, Lt. Comdr. Inglis
acted as arbiter for the entire
game. His quick and to the point decisions
reminded one of the big league
umpires. No doubt, Mr. Inglis knows
the national pastime from " A to Z".
