SCHUMA - HEINK 1861- 1936 --::-- One of the greatest contraltos of her age, a marked favorite as a grand­opera star, as a concert singer and as a radio artist. She was born at Lie­ben in Bohemia. At the age of 17 she appeared in Dresden in her first grand opera roll, that of Azucean in II Tro­vatore and for many years thereafter, sang in various parts of Germany. She gave her first performance in an American city . at the Metropolitian Opera House in New York in 1898. Her deep rich voice was enjoyed as fully when she sings simple folk songs in her recitals. Her principle gift to the American soldiers was her Grossmont estate. This estate is only a short distance from San Diego, Calif. This gift was made in 1928 as a refuge for sick and disabled veterans of the World War, and their families. Her words were: " You have honored me by calling me ' Mother' you honor­ed me by honoring my boy who died on a submarine." She is to be given a full military funeral by the Hollywood post of the American Legion. Her untireing ef­forts during the war to make evenings pleasant for the ones in various train­ing stations endeared her in the hearts of the A. E. F. The World has lost a wonderful person, those who have heard her and know her wish her soul " may rest in peace".--_.._--- Passenger- Does this bus stop at the Ritzmore Hotel? Conductor- No sir, we leave it at the barn at night. USS Houston- 1l- 23- 36- 900. THE CHRISTMAS PARTY ( Continued From Page One) --.:-- We have also decided to invite the mothers of the children attending. Thi!:: is going to mean, for one thing that the commissary department will be placed on its metal. The bill of fare will come under the keen eye of real experts this time. Cooks and Bakers, do your stuff! For the division Christmas trees it has been decided to merge the smaller divisions. The " R" and " V" divisions will work together, the " N" division will join the " C" division and the " H" division will join the " E" division. This will make a total of 14 division Christmas trees with about 6 children assigned to each. The division com­mittees mentioned in a former issue of the Blue Bonnet have now been organized and are beginning to func­tion. Stand by for a call for help, more news about the work of the commit­tees will appear in next week's issue. Mr. Quackenbush has found drama­tic talent for the " Happy Hour" but needs some more acts. Don't hide your light under a bushel, step up and make your theatrical ability known! ••• AVY PERSON EL SITUATIO ( Continued From Page One) --::-- regards to enlisted personnel. Studies indicate that 7,941 line officers are necessary to man fully the treaty navy now authorized and building. Legislation inacted by the last Con­gress authorized the increase from 5,491 to 6,531 line officers, leaving a deficiency will in part be taken care of by detailing aviation cadets to three years sea duty. Other methods of relieving the shortage are being studied. Never in the history of the peace time Navy has there been such won­derful opportunity for advancement in rating. It behooves every man to .1oJ JlasUl~ l[ a. 1~ da. ld o~ ~ soUl~ n S! l[ op this advancement. With a oroposed in­crease of some 8,000 men a good many new rates are going to open up. How­ever these require that a man prepare himself by careful study and dilligent work. They will go to the man who is best fitted, not to the man who figures that it is only a question of time and doesn't put forth the necessary effort to take advantage of the so- called break.
