Transcript Page Four. THE BLUE BONNET USS Houston- 7- 18- 36- 900. TACOMA HOSTS. TO AVY ( Continued From Page One) From 2200 to 2230 Tuesday, Wed-nesday and Friday evening all cruisers will give a searchlight display follow­ing the movement of the Houston. From 2215 until 2230 searchlights will remain stationary to permit the tak­ing of pictures. NAVY MOTHERS' CLUB AGAIN E TERTAINS Wednesday evening the Navy Moth­ers' Club will again be hostesses at an informal dance for enlisted men at the Edward B. Rhodes Post Legion Hall, 409 South G Street. STREET PARADE BY AR f: Y AND AVY Thursday morning the Army and Navy will have a street parade. For this parade the avy will furnish two Battalions of four rifle companies each and the Marine Corps will make up one battalion of four rifle com­panies. All the bandsmen present will be massed in two bands. Land­ing force " B" will be the uniform with Equipment " A". 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. BASEBALL 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. BASEBALL --::-- ( Continued From Page Two) ~::-- 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.

Comdr. In­glis acted as arbiter for the entire game. His quick and to the point de­cisions reminded one of the big league umpires.
