Transcript Page Four. STROKE DOPE --::-- Although the Marine and first en­listment race- boat crews have been organized for some time, lack of any definite information as to the schedule of races has prevented their working up to racing condition. A set- back was received by the soldier detchment when several members of the crew were transferred last week, and a tem­porary loss will be occasioned by more being sent to machine- gun school to­day. Still another handicap is that the stroke oarsman, Golaszewski, is with the C. P. O. spud peelers for this quarter, but it is expected to have all hands in top- notch shape be­fore Christmas. All positions are not taken on the first enlistment crew and it is not too late for any men so desiring to get into the boat. At present there is still a lot to be accomplished with this crew, yet much improvement has been shown these last two months. McDonald and Lawson are rowing stroke and number one starboard re­spectively and they are backed by several regular workers- out. However, a race can't be won with those vacant seats up in the bow and it is hoped that some new huskies will show up some coming field day- and continue to show up. .,..• VESTAL DEFEATS ORTHAMPTON --::-- This past Sunday the powerful Ves­tal nine defeated the Northampton in a hard fought baseball game. In the last of the ninth the Northampton went to bat with the Vestal leading by a score of 2- 0. With one man on base, a short hit into left field and an overthrow from there to second, which wasn't stopped until it rolled into the stands off first base, brought in one run for the Northampton. This looked as if it was going to change the outcome of the whole game; but, the Vestal was successful in retiring the next two batters before the man on base could reach home. In spite of the disagreeable weather there was a large crowd of fans cheering both teams on. The second game of the afternoon between the Louisville and Chester had to be called " no game" in the second inning on account of rain. THE BLUE BONNET OSCAR'S OPUS NO. 4 --::-- ACEY DUCEY Last night AY see a yelling horde Vots crowded round a little board Dey making lots of whoops and yips Vhile coupla guys ban moving chips Vun guy he skol be trowing dice Vhile all dese birds say " Burp him tvice" And later say uDa crazy twerp He lIot no gerts, he didn't burp."

In a recent letter, Sax, SIc, former well deck sweeper, stated that Ma­cumber, CY, former Ships Writer and Fahey, BMlc are now awaiting the commissioning of the Vincennes. Shannahan, CBM, formerly chief on the ship, is now CMAA on the Pensacola. Burgess, QM2c, now on duty at San Diego Naval Training Station, is on the MAA force there and still likes to make his liberties in Long Beach. Pete Hansen SIc, former striker in the 1st Lt's office writes that he is progressing nicely in the Photo­graphic school at Pensacola, Fla. USS Houston- IO- 24- 36- 900. " PERSO AL APPEARANCE" --..-- ( Continued From Page One) have any desire to be a Communist " 1' Red, but will join the " White" forces. Gaile Beverly former star of " Mayflowers", " New Moon" and " Queen High", has been secured to play the part of Joyce - lovely to look at, but appealing to the men not through the glamour of Hollywood, but by her straight forward manner. Cecile Nation - playing Gladys how­ever is carried away by the romance of the movies and she is " nuts" about everything pertaining to them. Gwen Challacombe playing Aunt Kate endeavors to hold all parties within the proper limits according to her version, while Sinclair Gannon charms you in the part of Jessie, Carole Arden's ward. If you have a movie star, you always have a public relations counsel _ in this case Tuttle is played by Lieut. Armstrong of the Navy - Try being public relations counsel for a movie star once and you will wish for a quiet retreat in the South Seas. Lieutenant Kenneth Jorgenson of the Marines plays the part of Bud _ he is engaged to Joyce - or at least believes so as he works away on auto­mobiles and tinkers with sound came­ras. Lieutenant Wade McClusky - an aviator in the Navy is Carole's chauf­feur - and is harrassed and often em­barassed as Carole goes on her care­free way. The play and players are excellent, " Personal Appearance" should play to a full house and the proceeds go to an excellent cause - to the Navy Relief Society. A donation will be made to Local Community Chest and Red Cross. In addition preceding the play San Diego will see its first amatuer hour with Hollywood Stars taking the place of Major Bones. The best talent in the enlisted force of the Navy and Marine Corps are entered in the con­test. The finals will be held Saturday night. Hollywood has tentatively pro­mised Hugh Herbert, Frank McHugh, Dick Powell, and Pat O'Brien as masters of ceremony for the " Major Bones" shows. Tickets are now on sale at the Savoy Theatre. Prices: 150, $ 1.00, $ 0.75, 0.50.
