Transcript Page Two. -: THE BLUE BONNET :- A weekly publication. published by the ship's company of the U. S. S. HOUSTON, Cap­tain G. E. Baker, U. S. N., Commandine and Commander P. K. Robottom, U. S. N. Executive Ollicer. EDITOR, Enshrn C. J. Mackenzie Ass't. Edltor:- R. C. Ball, Ch. Pal' Clerk Alloclate Editor:- R, W. O'Brien, BMlc Exchanee & Re- Write:- W. H. Osborne, Y3. 14 OVEMBER, 1936 * _*..__* ATHLETICS --::-- Last week the Blue Bonnet printed a story refening to the lack of sup­port in athletic activities, which in many parts of the ship was discussed by many of the men interested in athletics. I heard many of these discussions, and may I recommend one thing of interest to all. Why don't more of these petty officers encourage their men to go out for some team to re­present the ship? This statement seems to be a pass­ward around the ship; one that goes like this: " Why don't our teams ever win"? What's wrong with our team? Well, just to satisfy a few of you shipmates, I'll answer both questions for you. The answer to these questions are: There is absolutely nothing wrong with our teams. They are well drilled by coaches who know a great deal about Baseball, Basketball, Row­ing, Boxing, Wrestling, etc. It is not our team that is losing the games, it is you, men of the good ship Houston. At some of our games, if there had been a little cheering, it would have been a different story. Those fellows on the different teams are only human and they need at least a little encouragement from the rest of the ships company, if theY expect our teams to ever win. Until the ship's company decides to help out, no better results can be expected. - Mr. " X" The Blue Bonnet staff concurs one hundred percent with the above arti­cle. It is hoped that the ship's com­pany takes it seriously enough to give the various teams the backing and en­couragement they need and deserve. It shouldn't be so hard to do either, these games and matches are plenty interesting to watch. This is the second article by our THE BLUE BONNET anonymous Mr. " X". It is hoped that in the future he will continue to con­tribute to the paper. He has some very good ideas and doesn't beat around the bush expressing himself. The staff thinks that they are good, what do you readers think? Mr. " X" also handed in some very good personal " Questions and An­swers" which were incooperated in " Nosey News". The only reason they weren't given a separate column is because " Nosey ews" is supposedly written by Ev'body. It is written by one person from contributions by everybody. It is hoped that Mr. " X" and other members of the. ship's com­pany will continue to contribute to this column so that no one will be ex­empt from the " see all and hear all" sleuths. • l1a BASKETBALL --::-- During the past two weeks our basketball squad has been working out steadily, preparing for the Cruiser Series which is scheduled to open about December 9. At present our opponents in order, are not known, but that means little to this years squad. They are ready to go now and are eagerly looking forward to the opening date. With a few of last season's squad back with us and a wealth of new material, the starting line- up will most likely be in doubt until just before game time. The only noticeable weakness to date is the center jump. We have the players who can play that all import­ant position well, but getting the tip­off is not their specialty. This fact does not materially weak­en the team since the entire squad is working on air- tight defense and good team work. These two factors will carry them a long ways toward their goal, this season, the Cruiser Champ ionship. Advance dope on other Cruiser teams indicate our boys will have to be at their best to come through. These past few weeks has found the team pointing toward just that, being at their best, being in the win column from the opening date until the finals. e .• McQueen- To history, the Liberty Bell is worth a great deal of money. St. Marie-- I don't see why, the bell is cracked. WRESTLERS WIN 33 TO 5 OVER CHICAGO GRAPPLERS BOXERS LOOSE 8 TO 5 Opening the CruScoFor boxing and wrestling season, the HOUSTON box­ers and wrestlers tangled with the CHICAGO Saturday nite at Trona Field, San Pedro. Wrestling was staged first, with our mat men coming through to win seven out of eight bouts, Duggan, 118 Ibs, Chick, 126 Ibs and Hennessey, 135 Ibs won by default, while Arthur, 145 Ibs, Pratt, 155 Ibs, Fordemwalt, 165 Ibs and Folta, 170 won their matches in convincing style. Henry, our heavyweight gave a fine account of himself before being thrown. The excellent showing of the wrest­lers was the result of long hard weeks of steady training, and a lot of credit is due Lt. Young, Whitey Wellbourne, BM2c. and Juul, Cox, in their fine coaching. It is a record our athletic teams can shoot at. This first win in the 36- 37 season is the greatest win a Houston wrestling squad has ever chalked up. Due to lack of material our boxing squad did not fare so well, but credit goes to Hasty in his scrap which he lost in a close decision. Hill picked up some points for the team via the default route, while Carter, another promising Houston entry was unable to enter the ring due to sudden illness. Lt. Davis, Carp. Calb, CCstd Bar­nett and Kollemer, WT1c. have done their bit toward developing a boxing squad this year. All that is necessary to have a great squad is the appear­ance of a few more candidates. There must be a few potential champs in our midst. • • AIR MAIL SERVICE --..-- News of an Air- Mail stop being authorized at Long Beach should be good news to all hands. Service men have long felt this arm of our mail service would be a great advantage since so many of us have a consider­able amount of correspondence. This service will be inaugurated December 1, 1936. Of interest to many of our shipmates is the added note that the usual treatment of Philatelic mail will be accorded. • I • Mail the " Blue Bonnet" home:
