The rating of "excellent" was awarded by fire marshal S

Station fire chief Donald L. Moran and Capt. Thomas L.
Jordan, who heads the fire prevention program here, ex-
pressed great satisfaction over the rating given the department -
by the Sixth Naval District. Both laid stress on the > ?t
cooperation received from all personnel of the air station.

"Without' the help of everyone, we could not have achieved -
this fine record," they declared. "We received the best a'! ,
kind of help from everyone, with 99 per cent of all safety
violations corrected on the spot as we pointed them out."

inspecting, there is always the paper work A daily journalis

With Bob ;Joyce __ \
NAS' Fliers defied pessimism in their opening fray

against Corry Field, September 23 and it was a game worth-
while. Those who missed it, missed out on a fine exhibition

The Fliers surprised fans with a host of reserves, who stepped .
into the lineup and roared over the Corry gridders with

hardly a noticeable difference in the operating efficiency;
of the Jax Navy machine.

The opening fray showed many surprises and left notice
that the Fliers' bag of tricky plays can turn into many

touchdowns. The season is still young, however, and the

coaching staff, despite the overwhelming victory over Corry,
will not let up for one minute, the stiff grind of keeping the
boys in shape for the tough schedule ahead.
