Results Of Division Baseball o o o o o o o o o Tests at Temple University showcd that Gershwin's " Rapsody in Bluc" raised pulse, respiration, and blood pressure, and that Weber's " Invita­tion to the Dance" lowered them. o 0 0 It is a very inter­esting fact that at a certain point it is both Sunday and Monday at the same time. This peculiar sit­uation exists at the international date line. As is the case with the time belts where zones are of different times, the date line serves on the same prin­ciple with days. The line, known as the 180th meridian is the starting' line, so on one side it is Sunday while on thc other it would be Monday. Ships crossing the line must shift their time a whole day; depending on the direc­tion as to whether the day is gained or lost. The keel of a new 10,000 ton cruiser was recently laid at the New York avy Yard. This new cruiser addition to the United States Navy will be launched in the spring of 1938, and is to be named the U. S. S. Helena, in honor of the city of Helena, Montana. Gus's Weekly Letter ( From Page 2.) On 12 April 1934, there was a gust of wind on the top of Mount Washington in New Hampshire, which was re­corded at the rate of 231 miles per hour. Congress passed a bill on May 23, 1872, to the effect that sailors should have their coffee served upon arising in the morning. wouldn't begin to thaw out in a body's stomach afore the next hot spell."

Nutting seems to think that those music boxes are harder than his fists since taking a swing at one last even­ing. Oldberg probably thinks that one family package would be enough. Boys, boys! Do you take off like that every pay night or is it just a long story? Flash- Lowell " Long John" Ulrey has just made the long rated red stripes on his trousers. Nice going, Lowell. Anyone having an extra ten spot rolling up hill see No. 1 fight boy. Now that the division baseball sche­dule has been completed and half of the division teams have been elimin­ated another schedule has been ar­ranged which puts the three leaders of each bracket in a round robin series playoff. The fortunate teams that will battle for the prize are the " B," " C," " 4th," " S," " R," and " F" division teams. in a let down in the quality of his work. It's really easy to form a habit of wearing clothes that will meet the mark. Set aside one or two sets of uni­forms perfect in every respect for watchstanding and inspections because it is then that you are particularly judged, and act as a representative for your ship and division. But above all, be proud of your uniform. Battalion Of Death Blasts Here we are back in print again after two weeks absence. Hope we make it this time. That was a swell game we played with the Fourth and we should have won. " Pepper" Lam­bert, our first bagger, was on his toes the entire game and if " Snake- arm" Grimes could have thrown the ball with­in reach of us it would have been o­kay. Also, the um­pire was definitely on the Fourth Divi­sion team. Doc of ' the " H" Division, sure talks a grand game. And that if'n't all, he plays like a big­leaguer even if he did­n't have a glove. Nice going, Doc. The quar­termasters seem to -= ~ have the color of a --=- - good ripe lemon. Not even in the rooting section. If " Virgil" Willis doesn't get his leave before long there will be no need of getting it. He wasted away eleven pounds in th' 3 last week. Don't worry so much, Buck, she surely will wait for you. Asa, you better quit thinking of Junie In Ventura. We'll admit she is nice looking and all but she wouldn't want you to waste your life away for her when she is away down there. The First Soldier must be getting olu. At last he is starting to smoke a pipe and even an occasional cigar. He seems to make all 48' s and 72' s tho. Pl. Sgt. Johnstone reported aboard as relief for Nitschke and we are all mighty glad to have him with us. Hope he en­joys his tour of sea duty aboard the good ship Houston. Pvt. Lyke also re­ported aboard for duty and says he finds it much different than his six years in the army. Cigars are now in order from Mess Sergeant Oldham. Nice going " Red." A certain fellow that won the rifle mateh out on the range last week is still waiting for the beers from the other five shooters. Our two days of close and extended order drill went very nicely except for the few soldiers whose minds couldn't be kept on the field. Kuschill, our erstwhile drummer sure knows how to change the step while on the march. You better stick to the bugle lad. His beer almost got
