Ic Cartoonist: W. C. Ridge Circulation: John Boris, Y3c Printer: R. L. Beckwith, Sea. Ic ow Is The Time RIGHT now is the time to get the jump on the other cruisers in athletics, If the Houston wishes to stand up there near the top during the coming year it be­hooves us " to get a move on" start­ing now. Many years ago the Ram­bler Ship stood up there with the leaders but gradually interest waned and during the ensuing years we reached that undesirable position of being way down in the cellar. The go­1ng has been tough since then. We picked up momentum last year in an upward drive, but results show us that we've far to go. Our boxing and wrest­ling teams are away to a new start with more promising material than they ever had. Wellbourn, wrestling coach, and Arsenault, boxing coach, look forward to the best year yet. Nothing much is known so far in basketball, baseball, crew, and sailing but it is certain they're on the up drive too. If you want our ship to turn out winning teams give them support. This means that not only must our teams be cheered when they participate but the candidates for the teams must be allowed to train. It is necessary for them to train a great deal. So don't mutter and growl when they workout, even if it means that you must help them in their work at the time. The teams represent the ship. You are a part of that ship. Let's show the other that the Houston is literally brimming over with spirit. Boost Houston j hIetics Dear Marie, It sure causes a body to set his thinkin' cap square on his noggin tha way time slides into a hazy conglom­aration 0' bygones. When you get to ponderin' suchly, old Ned's bound to pop up with a searchin' look in his eye and a pitch fork thas achin' to prod your flesh, and a body's bound to be a thinkin' more kindly 0' gospel preach­in'. Here comes tha Fourth 0' July a rarin' ' round tha corner. It gets me in tha celebratin' mood faster'n a herd 0' wild mustangs a runnin' to a drink­in' hole after a two day thirst. Gosh Marie, ' member all tha fun we ' usta have bouncin' along ruts ' n tha county road ' n our Pas' buckboards headed for tha 4th barbecues, ball games, and square dances that begun early ' n tha day and ended when tha folks wearied 0' jumpin' up and down on tha dance floor. And they allus tucked us young uns away ' n tha wag­ons when tha fiddles were a screechin' tha loudest. We wanted to see our Pas and Mas a clampin' ' n tha dance but tha peepers dinna stay open some how. Pa never gave us spendin' money for fireworks and all those explodin' gim cracks, since he ' lowed there was more folks killed a doin' tha celebrat­in' than met their maker in tha battle they wuz celebratin'. That dinna worry us. Remember tha time us young whippersnappers filled a can with Ma's beet juice, clamped tha lid on tight'n a frightened clam, and poked up a sizable fire under ' er. The idea wuz all right and it sure woulda been a wonderful sight to see tha red water a splashin' up to the sky if old posy nose, hard cider J en­kins hadn't a showed up around there about then. He wuz a staggerin' under a load already a runnin' up into tha gallons. Tha can started a bulgin' and all of a sudden she let go with an awful bang, hittin' old ' hard cider'- square in tha middle. It musta burnt him a mite, too. Seein' all tha red beet juice draped over his form from stem to stern, he let out an awful yell and commenced a sobbin' for tha parson. He ' lowed he wuz a breathin' his last. From that day to this, Marje, old Jenkins' been tha consarndest prayin' soul ' n tha county and hasn't touched a drop 0' anything stronger'n soft water. Kinda makes me feel proud sometimes ' bout tha good I done then, but I wouldn't breath a word to Pa. He still wonders what happened to his favorite beet juice. And he might limber up his whippin' arm. You can't tell ' bout tha vagaries 0' age. Love, Gus. ...... Nice Work Navy! ( From Page 1.) in winning the Poughkeepsie crew re­gatta. Among other things I said that Navy, naturally, ought to be able to row a boat better than any­one else and the significant thing was not that T avy won, at last, but that it had taken so long to do it. But the boys of the U. S. S. Houston can't see it that way at all. The want me to know that row­boating is just a side line at Annapo­lis. The midshipmen, they say, have no more time to devote to crew than have the other Poughkeesie entrants­less, perhaps, because they have to study hard on such tough subjects as navigation, engineering and gunnery. There ain't no snap courses at An­napolis. I am happy to make these facts known in behalf of the U. S. S. Houston. After all, I am not prepared to pick a beef with a warship." Editor's Note­Mebbeso. ..... Houston Wins Golf Match THE Houston officers' golf team took the measure of the Whitney officers to the tune of 6% to 5%.
