MOTHER'S DAY

The glorification of motherhood dates back to the time of Christ. As He hung dying on the Cross, He turned His sorrowful eyes towards earth. There He beheld His own mother in bitter sorrow with His disciple John. It was then He spoke those memorable words, "Behold Thy Mother." Here was a dying Son appealing to his dearest disciple in behalf of His grief-stricken mother. Even in the trying moments of the agonizing pain of the cross He could not forget His own Blessed Mother.
The one name sweet to the memory of all of us is that of mother. Since 1914 the Second Sunday of May has been set aside to do her special honor. While Mother's Day is one of the newest of our anniversaries it is one of the most popular. On it we give public expression of the love and reverence we have in our hearts for our mothers.
A good mother is the best possible fortune man can have. In a special way she molds the character and shapes the destiny of her children. She cares for them, suffers with them, and lives with them. Hers in the watchful eye, the sympathetic touch; hers is the load of care, the midnight vigil. There is no sweeter music or more beautiful voice than that of her children. Their success is the completion of her finest dreams. No other love is like her love. No other influence is so great.
May God bless them on Mother's Day wherever they may be!

NAS SLIP STREAM

This Past Week - The noise
that was drifting through the housing area originating in AV-"69", Chief Mauldin's house marked the Departure of "Rube" Melton AD3, one of "Our Native Cuban Sailors,"
after an over night stay of three and a half years. His Orders arrived transferring hin to Patuxent River, Md., along with Ludwick "Von" Block AD1. The Party was also in Honor of the NAS Operations crew, at which all that were present had mucho fun. (Mundt,
take notice).
What well known Fisherman will
Christen another "Hash-mark" on his house very shortly? Ask "Mac"
at the Ordnance shack. He may be
able to give you a "Clue."
There has been another "Photo
Lab" commissioned by an NAS soul, at DH-118, the residence of Honorable R. F. Radcliff, Chief Clerk in Supply. This past week has seen a complete reconversion of his living quarters into an outfit that resembles an "Eastman Kodak" finishing plant, complete with enlarger, two cameras with
his wife acting as Lab assistant.
News in the Sports world is still
running in our favor by the NAS Base Ball club stomping the Hospital into the deck last Monday with a score of 7-1. That wonderful Pitcher "Blackey" Gadomski, pitched a straight no-hit to the thirteenth power. This makes the score of the team stand at 11 won and none lost in the Base League.
Nice game fellows. We hope that you do a good job this week also.

VU-10 lost its
last softball
g am e Tuesday
night to the
SI Fleet Training
Group, the score
W being eighteen
t to zero. It has been a tough
season fellows
a n d we know
you did your best, we hope you will
have better luck next year.
Say fellows, don't get your
hopes up but from what I can gather we are to have a better laundry system beginning next month. According to the Ship's Service Officer we will have quicker
and better service.
On Monday we saw three new
faces about the hangar. They are Louis R. Lindenborn AMC, Conrad C. Faber AT3, and Stephen C. Hill A01. Welcome aboard fellows we hope you will like your duty here.
Several enlisted men and officers
from the squadron are on tem. porary duty down in San Juan, they
will be gone a couple weeks.
Robert E. Vice AM2 left for
the States this week for a few
days leave.


The Headquarters C o mpany beach beer
Y party and picnic at Cuzco Beach last Sat* W urday turned
out to be a bang up aff air. It looked like rain for a while, but
it never did, so everyone had a good time . . . The usual gang hung around the beverage cooler and they all turned green around the gills when a truck pulled up and unloaded some ice cream. Baby McAlpine was the only one fluid enough to be poured into the truck for the return trip home . . . Ed. Satlawa, sitting in a chair all afternoon saying he'll be drinking beer in the States next Saturday . . . "Candid" Martin, complete with exposure meter, was again on hand exposing some super XX.
The excellent food was prepared by MSGT Stroud and "Big Red" did his bit as Chief Bottle Opener.
The tryouts for the Southeastern rifle matches are over and the two men from this post to make the grade were Cpl. C. E. Stevenson and PFC Edward Satlawa . - . They left for Camp LeJeune, N. C. for the matches last Wednesday.
We bid bon voyage to Captain and Mr . Roy E. Elrod who left for the States last Wednesday. Captain Elrod will be the Officerin-Charge of the Tenth Naval District Rifle Team and after the matches he will be stationed at Quantico, Virginia.
The boys in the galley are having a rough time lately with the 85 extra mouths to feed .. . They're holding their own and at the present no one seems to be starving ...

WHERE HAPPINESS
IS FOUND
In little courtesies.
In pleasant words.
In facing life with a smile.
In making others happy.
In friendly letters.
In good wishes.
In friendships.
In the companionship of good books.
In helping others.
In healthful recreation.
In a clean conscience.
In doing duty cheerfully.
In doing one's best, regardless of reward.
In mutual confidence.
In being able to deny yourself of even legitimate pleasures, thus exercising your freedom.
In the realization that we are not all perfect, thus easily pardoning the unconscious shortcomings of others.

A happy life is the reward of good; goodness is the work, happiness is the reward.


GIRL OF THE MONTH


For the month of May our lime light turns to Miss Jeanette Albritton of Winterheaven, Florida.
Jeanette is 5'5", 118 lbs., blue eyes, blond hair (natural) and is eighteen years old.
She is the one and only of Larry Mills, ET3 better know as Uncle Larry to you radio fans.
According to Larry, Jeanette is quite an athlete, while attending the Winterheaven High School, she was Captain of the Girls basketball and swimming teams.
In describing her Larry says: "She is just another Esther Williams." Jeanette swims four miles every morning before breakfast.

DEFINITION OF A
SAILOR
To the government, he's manpower; to the admiral, he's expendable; to the doctor, he's a potential casulty; to the storekeeper, he's a pay account; and to the yeoman, the's another service record. To the Personnel Officer he's part of a complement; to the Chaplain, he's a soul to be saved and a mind to set at ease. To the section leader, he's a goldbrick and to the galley slave, he's a chow hound . . . BUT to his family he's the shining example of an American sailor.
SMOKERS CAUSE FIRE
Despite the special precautions now in effect, some careless person caused a brush fire in the Magazine Area this past week. This hazard affected all of us, and may result in further restriction of picnic privileges. Violators of "NO SMOKING" restrictions should expect little sympathy either in a quick trip to mast or a quicker one to Hades. Again now: DON'T SMOKE IN THE MAGAZINE AREAS.

HOSPITAL WINS OVER TRAGRP BY 6 - 5 SCORE

Thursday night the Hospital softball team ended their season with a victory over the Fleet Training Group in one of the most thrilling ball games of the current season.
One of the largest, hardestrooting crowds of the season saw the "Docs" get off to a bad start when the TrgGrp scored four runs in the first inning. From then on the Docs settled down and began hacking away at this imposing lead. In the last half of the 7th, with the Hospital on the short end of a 5-4 score, Bolden singled to center, advanced to second on a wild pitch, and scored on Cummin's double into right field - Cummins going to third on the play at the plate. With the potential winning run on third base, Brown stepped up to the plate and hit a long fly to center, scoring Cummins with the winning run. The game was sparked by Brown's brilliant playing at third and O'Brien's coverage of left field and Cummins' hit in the last inning.
All season Cummins has been the sparkplug of the team. His excellent catching, his knack for cutting down would-be base stealers, and his hitting ability have been a great asset.

TENNIS TOURNAMENT ON
26 MAY

The best singles and doubles teams will represent Guantanamo at the Tenth Naval District Championship to be played at San Juan in June.
Commander E. L. Robertson, C. 0., Naval Station, who is the Base singles champion is preparing to defend his title. Commander Robertson and Lieutenant Commander Van Wolkenten won the doubles also last year.
Anyone who is interested in entering the tournament may. submit their names by calling the Recreation Office at 778.
Balls and rackets are available at the Recreation Desk for those who want to practice.

SANTIAGO GOLFERS TO VISIT BASE

On 15 May, the Santiago Country Club golfers will visit the Base for a return match for the one played on 3 April at Santiago.
The Guantanamo golfers are sharpening their putters as Santiago whitewashed them on all previous matches.
LCdr. McWilliams, our Base champion, was defeated by Doctor Hechevarria, of Santiago.
This match on May 15 should prove to be a real battle as the Doctor won on his home course.


NAS SHIP'S SERVICE
BECOMES BRANCH

In line with consolidations and saving wherever possible, the Ship's Service Department of the Naval Air Station has been designated a Branch of the Naval Station Ship's Service with Lieutenant Commander W. G. McWilliams Jr., SC, USN as Officer-in-Charge. Under this new arrangement, a duplication of effort in many departments will be eliminated . . . Laundries, cobbler shops and tailor shops will be consolidated effective in June. After that date the Naval Station group will perform these services for both the Naval Air Station and Naval Station customers.
No change in the status of the Naval Air Station Store is contEmpleted at this time. However, the ordering of merchandise, handled in the past by each store, has been combined and purchase orders will effect a saving in personnel and time at the Naval Supply Depot inasmuch as a great majority of Ship's Service purchase orders are channelled through that activity before forwarding to the Naval Supply Center at Norfolk.

SHIP'S STORE DELIVERY
SERVICE A SUCCESS

Since commencing the delivery service on the 15th of April some 360 deliveries have been made to date.
This new service has worked in the interest of the majority of course with a few inconveniences here and there but on the whole it has been a success.
It has helped the housewives who have large packages as they are delivered right to the home.

BOOK NOTES

The following books are available at the library this week: The best seller "Eagle in the Sky" by F. Van Mason. "Bombs at Bikini by Shurcliff. For amateur photographers, "Fun With Your Camera", by Deschin. "Marriage is on Trial," by Judge John Sbarbaro. "Heritage of Freedom" the official book of the Freedom Train. "These Are The Mexicans" by Herbert Cerwin. "U.S. Naval Logistics in the Second World War" by Ballantine and "The Indefinite River" by Preston Scheyer.
Gunnery Officer: Now listen you guys, this new bullet will penetrate three inches of wood, so keep your heads down."

MAA: Your honor, I admit I have been driving a bit fast, but I would like to point out that I am a Navy Master-at-Arms ...
JUDGE: Ignorance is no excuse.

Pierce, USNR CHAPLAINS CORITER MOTHER'S DAY The glorification of motherhood dates back to the time of Christ. As He hung dying on the Cross, He turned His sorrowful eyes towards earth. There He beheld His own mother in bitter sorrow with His disciple John. It was then He spoke those memorable words, "Behold Thy Mother." Here was a dying Son appealing to his dearest disciple in behalf of His grief-stricken mother. Even in the trying moments of the agonizing pain of the cross He could not forget His own Blessed Mother. The one name sweet to the memory of all of us is that of mother. Since 1914 the Second Sunday of May has been set aside to do her special honor. While Mother's Day is one of the newest of our anniversaries it is one of the most popular. On it we give public expression of the love and reverence we have in our hearts for our mothers. A good mother is the best possible fortune man can have. In a special way she molds the character and shapes the destiny of her children. She cares for them, suffers with them, and lives with them. Hers in the watchful eye, the sympathetic touch; hers is the load of care, the midnight vigil. There is no sweeter music or more beautiful voice than that of her children. Their success is the completion of her finest dreams. No other love is like her love. No other influence is so great. May God bless them on Mother's Day wherever they may be! S Page Two THE INDIAN 1

THE INDIAN Pare Three NAS SLIP STREAM This Past Week -The noise that was drifting through the housing area originating in AV-"69", Chief Mauldin's house marked the Departure of "Rube" Melton AD3, one of "Our Native Cuban Sailors," after an over night stay of three and a half years. His Orders arrived transferring him to Patuxent River, Md., along with Ludwick "Von" Block AD1. The Party was also in Honor of the NAS Operations crew, at which all that were present had mucho fun. (Mundt, take notice). What well known Fisherman will Christen another "Hash-mark" on his house very shortly? Ask "Mac" at the Ordnance shack. He may be able to give you a "Clue." There has been another "Photo Lab" commissioned by an NAS soul, at DH-118, the residence of Honorable R. F. Radcliff, Chief Clerk in Supply. This past week has seen a complete reconversion of his living quarters into an outfit that resembles an "Eastman Kodak" finishing plant, ;complete with enlarger, two cameras with his wife acting as Lab assistant. News in the Sports world is still running in our favor by the NAS Base Ball club stomping the Hospital into the deck last Monday with a score of 7-1. That wonderful Pitcher "Blackey" Gadomski, pitched a straight no-hit to the thirteenth power. This makes the score of the team stand at 11 won and none lost in the Base League. Nice game fellows. We hope that you do a good job this week also. VU-10 lost its last softball game Tuesday night to the Fleet Training (. IGroup, the score being eighteen CTS' G to zero. It has been a tough season fellows and we know you did your best, we hope you will have better luck next year. Say fellows, don't get your hopes up but from what I can gather we are to have a better laundry system beginning next month. According to the Ship's Service Officer we will have quicker and better service. On Monday we saw three new faces about the hangar. They are Louis R. Lindenborn AMC, Conrad C. Faber AT3, and Stephen C. Hill AO1. Welcome aboard fellows we hope you will like your duty here. Several enlisted men and officers from the squadron are on temporary duty down in San Juan, they will be gone a couple weeks. Robert E. Vice AM2 left for the States this week for a few days leaves The Headquarters Co mpany beach beer nic at Cuzco -Beach last Saturday turned out to be a bang up affair. It looked like rain for a while, but it never did, so everyone had a good time ...The usual gang hung around the beverage cooler and they all turned green around the gills when a truck pulled up and unloaded some ice cream. Baby McAlpine was the only one fluid enough to be poured into the truck for the return trip home ...Ed. Satlawa, sitting in a chair all afternoon saying he'll be drinking beer in the States next Saturday ."Candid" Martin, complete with exposure'meter, was again on hand exposing some super XX. The excellent food was prepared by MSGT Stroud and "Big Red" did his bit as Chief Bottle Opener. The tryouts for the Southeastern rifle matches are over and the two men from this post to make the grade were Cpl., C. E. Stevenson and PFC Edward Satlawa .. They left for Camp LeJeune, N. C. for the matches last Wednesday. We bid bon voyage to Captain and Mrs. Roy E. Elrod who left for the States last Wednesday. Captain Elrod will be the Officerin-Charge of the Tenth Naval District Rifle Team and after the matches he will be stationed at Quantico, Virginia. The boys in the galley are having a rough time lately with the 85 extra mouths to feed .They're holding their own and at the present no one seems to be starving WHERE HAPPINESS IS FOUND In little courtesies. In pleasant words. In facing life with a smile. In making others happy. In friendly letters. In good wishes. In friendships. In the companionship of good books. In helping others. In healthful recreation. In a clean conscience. In doing duty cheerfully. In doing one's best, regardless of reward. In mutual confidence. In being able to deny yourself of even legitimate pleasures, thus exercising your freedom. In the realization that we are not all perfect, thus easily pardoning the unconscious shortcomings of others. A happy life is the reward of good; goodness is the work, happiness is the reward. GIRL OF THE MONTH For the month of May our lime light turns to Miss Jeanette Albritton of Winterheaven, Florida. Jeanette is 5'5", 118 lbs., blue eyes, blond hair (natural) and is eighteen years old. She is the one and only of Larry Mills, ET3 better know as Uncle Larry to you radio fans. According to Larry, Jeanette is quite an athlete, while attending the Winterheaven High School, she was Captain of the Girls basketball and swimming teams. In describing her Larry says: "She is just another Esther Williams." Jeanette swims four miles every morning before breakfast. DEFINITION OF A SAILOR To the government, he's manpower; to the admiral, he's expendable; to the doctor, he's a potential casulty; to the storekeeper, he's a pay account; and to the yeoman, he's another service record. To the Personnel Officer he's part of a complement; to the Chaplain, he's a soul to be saved and a mind to set at ease. To the section leader, he's a goldbrick and to the galley slave, he's a chow hound .BUT to his family he's the shining example of an American sailor. SMOKERS CAUSE FIRE Despite the special precautions now in effect, some careless person caused a brush fire in the Magazine Area this past week. This hazard affected all of us, and may result in further restriction of picnic privileges. Violators of "NO SMOKING" restrictions should expect little sympathy either in a quick trip to mast or a quicker one to Hades. Again now: DON'T SMOKE IN THE MAGAZINE AREAS. THE INDIAN Pace Three

HOSPITAL WINS OVER TRAGRP BY 6 -5 SCORE Thursday night the Hospital softball team ended their season with a victory over the Fleet Training Group in one of the most thrilling ball games of the current season. One' of the largest, hardestrooting crowds of the season saw the "Does" get off to a bad start when the TrgGrp scored four runs in the first inning. From then on the Does settled down and began hacking away at this imposing lead. In the last half of the 7th, with the Hospital on the short end of a 5-4 score, Bolden singled to center, advanced to second on a wild pitch, and scored on Cummin's double into right field -Cummins going to third on the play at the plate. With the potential winning run on third base, Brown stepped up to the plate and hit a long fly to center, scoring Cummins with the winning run. The game was sparked by Brown's brilliant playing at third and O'Brien's coverage of left field and Cummins' hit in the last inning. All season Cummins has been the sparkplug of the team. His excellent catching, his knack for cutting down would-be base stealers, and his hitting ability have been a great asset. TENNIS TOURNAMENT ON 26 MAY The best singles and doubles teams will represent Guantanamo at the Tenth Naval District Championship to be played at San Juan in June. Commander E. L. Robertson, C. 0., Naval Station, who is the Base singles champion is preparing to defend his title. Commander Robertson and Lieutenant Commander Van Wolkenten won the doubles also last year. Anyone who is interested in entering the tournament may, submit their names by calling the Recreation Office at 778. Balls and rackets are available at the Recreation Desk for those who want to practice. SANTIAGO GOLFERS TO VISIT BASE On 15 May, the Santiago Country Club golfers will visit the Base for a return match for the one played on 3 April at Santiago. The Guantanamo golfers are sharpening their putters as Santiago whitewashed them on all previous matches. LCdr. McWilliams, our Base champion, was defeated by Doctor Hechevarria, of Santiago. This match on May 15 should prove to be a real battle as the Doctor won on his home course. NAS SHIP'S SERVICE BECOMES BRANCH In line with consolidations and saving wherever possible, the Ship's Service Department of the Naval Air Station has been designated a Branch of the Naval Station Ship's Service with Lieutenant Commander W. G. McWilliams Jr., SC, USN as Officer-in-Charge. Under this new arrangement, a duplication of effort in many departments will be eliminated Laundries, cobbler shops and tailor shops will be consolidated effective in June. After that date the Naval Station group will perform these services for both the Naval Air Station and Naval Station customers. No change in the status of the Naval Air Station Store is contE mpleted at this time. However, the ordering of merchandise, handled in the past by each store, has been combined and purchase orders will effect a saving in personnel and time at the Naval Supply Depot inasmuch as a great majority of Ship's Service purchase orders are channelled through that activity before forwarding to the Naval Supply Center at Norfolk. SHIP'S STORE DELIVERY SERVICE A SUCCESS Since commencing the delivery service on the 15th of April some 360 deliveries have been made to date. This new service has worked in the interest of the majority of course with a few inconveniences here and there but on the whole it has been a success. It has helped the housewives who have large packages as they are delivered right to the home.
