Osborne, Y3c 24 OCTOBER, 1936. * * * THE " SPECIALIST" --::-- The Navy, like any large organi­zation, has its quota of " specialists". Some are special this, or special that. We find most of them are well quali­fied in their own line. The specialists I have in mind are those who usually have a small slip of paper in their hand with a lead pencil, running from one to another, their division officer, head of department and on to the executive officer, for this or that. By using the second two letters and the last two letters of the word specialist, you have what I mean. Catch on? You will find that these individuals are not all members of the G. G. Club either, - some are rather clever, in their line, they start on the dock Monday morning for a standby for the next week- end. It reminds one of the ten cent chain letter, it goes on and on and on. lt must be a great satisfaction to one, who upon being honorably dis­charged from the Naval Service, to have that happy thought in mind as one salutes the gangway for the last time, " Well, no one did my duty or stood my watch". When you rate liberty, go ashore, when you are in the duty section, well, read those t; hree words on your honorable discharge button. Think it over! How_ s. tostandby! __.......--- DID YOU KNOW That in 1779 Congress passed a law that twenty cents a month would be deducted from the pay of each Ma­rine to create a fund for building and maintaining a hospital for their use. That in 1851 Marines of the Dale assisted in the bombardment of J 0­hanna Island, when the King refused to give proper redress for unlawfully detaining and imprisoning a captain THE BLUE BONNET WRESTLING DOPE -- 00-- The time is drawing near for our first match, which is with the Chi­cago " Racketeers". Several new can­didates can be seen at the daily work­outs, as a result of the renewed in­terest in the Houston's wrestling squad and prospective chances of a victory in our Chicago match. All members of the squad have been steadily absorbing mat tactics and getting conditioned. We're pointing for a win by a fall in each of the eight bouts, and no matter what the outcome may be our opponents can never say the Houston was a " set­up". Competition is keen in several weights as the nal squad has not been picked. At present the squad lines up as follows:- 118 Ibs DUGGAN 126 Ibs CHICK - GARBS 135 Ibs ..., .... HENNESSEY 145 Ibs ARTHUR - PENNY 155 Ibs "" PRATT - HARDIN 165 Ibs FOLTA - BECKWITH 175 Ibs FREEMAN - FORDEM-WALDT - FLOYD. Heavy .... FOX - DUROSE - HE RY PICKE S - COATES. ••• of an American merchant vessel. That in 1834 Congress definitely settled the question of jurisdiction of the Marine Corps; providing that the Marines are a part of the Navy, except when detached for service with the Army by order of the President. That in 1843 a Marine Sergeant saved the life of Commodore Perry at Berribee, Africa, when he shot King Ben Crack- o while that indi­vidual was in the act of assulting the Commodore. Perry had been sent there to put down piracy. That in 1854 Marines took part in the shelling of the town of San Juan del Norte, Nicaragua, by the Cyane for gross outrages to American citi­zens. Later the Marines went ashore and burned the town. That in 1848 twenty seven Marines were beseiged at San Jose, Calif., by a large Mexican force for nearly a month, when rescued by Marines and sailors of the Cyane. • • The folks at home will enjoy read­ing the Blue Bonnet. Mail it! .::. EXHAUST- PIPE-::- ~- u-: -;" 00 .- - '- Now that the L. R. B. P. has been fired, the Aviation Unit is going to take advantage of the respite from flight activities, to concentrate . n plane upkeep and engine charges. Very little time has been available while flying in the past three weeks to accomplish all the work necessary to keep our planes in top shape. Wonder why the sudden influx of nicknames recently in our unit? What with " Goon" Mellon, " Porky" Rosenkrans, the ultimate is reached by naming, of all people, Hollings­worth as " Sunshine" and Wright as " Sunshine Jr"! What a pair!? Now that " Charlie" Noble has the buttons it appears as tho he is eligi­ble for the G. G. Club! Wonder what it is that Martin sees in Donald Duck, that he looks all over the ship for a picture of him. It appears as tho Ronnie Ardell has become ship conscious lately. Anyone wishing to get the straight dope on football winners, consult " Pat" Readette in the Port tower. The memory of that gun Swenson saw recently, apparently has made him climb in the wagon with a ven­geance! • •• NAVY PLAYS PRINCETON ( Continued Vr:~ m Page One) considerable stren~~ h but at the sta­getically critical points of the contest s~ le fumbled or showed a poor selec­ti? n of plays. Likewise, the powerful TIger aggregation showed plenty of mid- field strength but each of the many times that she got within strik­ing distance she was successfully re­pelled by the Quakers, who in the meantime succeeded in pushing over the only and winning touchdown. In spite of last wee k's defeat Princeton is still rated as one of th~ outstanding teams in the country. In fo~ r s~ asons, she has only met defeat tWIce In some thirty games. Such out­standing players as Montgomery, Morrell and White backed by the poweful team are going to give the Navy Goat a real battle.
