Exactly how much have You saved in the last twelve months? If the sum you have to put down is embarrassingly small - then you had better start today to save the way that millions of far-sighted thrifty Americans have found absolutely sure-fire-the Navy Payroll Savings Way!
Every dollar you save is a dollar enlisted in the fight against inflation.

TOKYO ROSE, AXIS SALLY
TO BE TRIED

Attorney General Tom Clark has asked United States Army authorities in Tokyo and Frankfurt to arrest "Tokyo Rose" and "Axis Sally' for return to the United States, where the two women will be brought to trial for alleged treason.
"Tokyo Rose" is 32 years old, Toguri D'Aquino, American-born Japanese and a graduate of UCLA, is one of the six women accused of propaganda broadcasting on "Radio Tokyo" during the war.
The nightly broadcasts usually were aimed at creating unrest among the troops and a desire to return home.
These are the same charges that will face Mildred "Axis Sally" Gillars, 30, American girl who allegedly was used to voice Nazi propaganda during the war.

and in 1947 was ordered to the Contract Division, Bureau of Ships, which was his last duty before being ordered to Guantanamo.
The Commander arrived aboard the 25th of July. Welcome aboard, Commander, we hope you enjoy your tour of duty here at Gtmo.

BIRTHDAY PARTY AT
WINDMILL BEACH
Windmill Beach was the scene of a birthday party, July 26 when members of the choir and their friends helped PFCs Bob Lewis and R. T. Watson celebrate. The boys' commanding officer was on hand with some interesting tales of his boot camp days and later military experiences. The party was scheduled for 1730 but transportation difficulties caused some to arrive late.
The usual picnic supper of potato salad, pickles, weenies, hamburgers with onions and a jelly roll topped off by candlesfor the occasion, satisfied the healthy appetites of those present. The campfire cast its light on the groups of singers which, as might be expected since so many choir members were present, gathered to sing old favorite songs. Watson had his guitar all ready to accomanpy the singers but an unexpected accident broke one of the strings. However, barber shop quartettes popped up to sing such standbys as Shine On Harvest Moon, and Down by the Old Mill Stream. Of course in honor of the two Marines having birthdays, the Marines' Hymn was sung by all present as well as the inevitable Happy Birthday. As the dying embers of the once roaring campfire were extinguished, the party officially broke up.
The ride back to the Base and the respective homes of the celebrants provided more opportunity to exercise the vocal cords and the open truck and sky, filled with stars led to such popular 'songs as Don't Fence Me In and Deep In The Heart of Texas. After the pipes really got cleaned out, we tackled such tunes as Apple Blossom Wedding, Let Me Call You Sweetheart, Night and Day, When You Were Sweet Sixteen and When Irish Eyes Are Smiling. It was a vocally worn out, but happy crew that climbed off the truck after the party.

ORDNANCE STUFF
By Alston Jones
There isn't very much to say about the Ordnance Department except for the "New Look" to be noticed everywhere you may turn around the vicinity of the Ordnance buildings. The "New Look" in this case does not subtract, but adds to the appearance on a whole, involving (as the saying goes) a lot of elbow grease. It is worth it though.
The Man of the Week is ChGun A. P. Secondo, USN, whose primary duties are those of Mine Overhaul .Officer, 'and a very busy man in general. Gunner Secondo hails from Hornell, New York, and has to his credit a total of seventeen years and four months service.
He enlisted in the Navy in April 1931, and has had almost a naval carder of sea duty, having spent sixteen and a half years roaming the seven seas. He reported on board the Base in January 1948 and was assigned the duties 4e now holds, this being his first shore duty in a long time. He is a "plank owner" on three ships: USS Quincy, USS Russel, and the USS Fargo, and has served on nine naval vessels so far.
In June 1948 he joined the Grand United Order of Married Men G. U. 0. M. M.- in other words, he wed charming Miss Jamie Johnson from Gilbert, North Carolina. Miss Johnson - Mrs. Secondo to .you - is a nurse aboard the USS President Adams, and has been in the Navy for approximately three and a half years, fourteen months of which is credited to her as sea duty. She is a graduate of Columbia Hospital, Columbia, North Carolina where she studied nursing. Mrs. Secondo. plans for all intents and purposes to resign in a month or so and join her husband as soon after as possible.
The President Adams goes 'back and forth from Guantanamo Bay as you well know, but the happiest man on the Base is Gunner Secondo anytime the arrival of' the P. A. is announced. Would you blame him? After all two or three weeks is a very long time. The P. A.'s stay here is never long enough and there's always a very sad person at least for a couple of days after she leaves.
The Gunner plans to make the little lady a home here as soon as she gets out and as far as one can see the sooner, the better. When asked what he though about his duty here, he remarked with a smile of satisfaction: "It's wonderful, not only as a duty station, but all the way around, and when my wife joins me it will be just grand."
Congratulations are a bit tardy, but better late than never, so here's our hearty congratulations to Ch. Gun. and Mrs. Secondo 'for happi-


ATTENTION
OHIO VETERANS

Ohio veterans of World War II are urged to submit changes of address to Director, World War II Compensation Fund, Columbus 16, Ohio. The claim number and address submitted with the application, as well as the new address should be included.
A laxity in the above respect is resulting in considerable administrative delays, says the state director.
Compensation is paid for active service time accrued between 7 December 1941 and 2 September 1945 at the rate of $10 per month for each month of domestic service, and $15 per month for each month of foreign service, with a maximum payable of $400.
A girl was wearing two officer's silver bars pinned to her sweater. "Is your boy friend a lieutenant?" an acquaintance asked.
"No," she replied, "two JG's."
Small boy writing answers to an anatomy test: Your legs is what if you ain't got two pretty good ones, you can't get to first base and neither can your sister.
Woman may be physically weaker than man, but she can put a cap on a fruit jar so tight he can't take it off.
Officer: "Have you swabbed the deck and polished the brightwork ?"
Sailor: "Yes sir, and I've swept the horizon with my binoculars."
Interested civilian: "And mate, what are you?"
Sailor: "I'm a cook striker."
Civilian: "My gosh, has the Navy got labor troubles, too?"

ness beyond compare, and a pleasant tour of duty as well.
Mr. Oswin L. Steele, Property and Supply Clerk for the Ordnance Department celebrated his fourth anniversary on the Base, and working for the Department, on 24 August 1948. Mr. Steele is from the Virgin Islands and was sent here to set up the Stock Recording System for the Naval Magazine, Naval Station. His services have been quite satisfactory and commendations are quite in order. Congratulations, keep up the good work.
G. C. Pecuch, MN3, USN, of the Sixth Divisi6n walks around with his chest in the air these days, but who can blame the guy? Pecuch was a member of the Soft Ball Team from Guantanamo Bay that competed in the All Navy Soft Ball Tournament. He feels that even though the Guantanamo Team did not win in the finals, it was still something to have been chosen to go along. Better luck next time old boy.


ELECTRONICS NEWS
By "Irish"
After a long, hard fight with the U. S. Navy, Jack Niebell finally got his leave. As usually is his habit, Jack is getting home the "hard way" . . . working his way up to Nedwport, R. I. on the USS Beatty. We wish him a good time . . . and a speedy return!
With almost everybody griping about the Naval Station movies, it's a lucky person that gets to sit in on one of Lieutenant Haglund's shows, as he is the best operator on the Base. "If you don't believe him," says Chase, ". . . just ask him."
Bob Welsh, our "electronic yeoman," has finally finished his amplifier. We wish to congratulate him on a job well done. Anybody can go to school and learn to do a thing, but the man that teaches himself ... as Welsh and our shop striker, Bob Bowyer have done, deserve the credit. Bowyer is giving the techs in the shop some serious competition in radio repair work. The jingle of money heard in the shop is Bowyer making his fortune by repairing private radios.
The imperturable Joe Sack is getting a wee bit perturbed over the WGBY transmitter. From the solder, wire and man-hours I've seen Joe putting into that thing, I'd call it more than a "transmitter by Sack," than a "Transmitter by Mikal of Miami." While we're speaking of Joe, I want to give him our belated congratulations on his eighth wedding anniversary.
We are as anxious as Chaplain Bosserman for the Chime Fund to meet its mark, so the- electronic chimes can be sent to "Gtmo." Both Case and I are curious as to "how in heck do the darn things work?" I understand that there are eighteen hundred dollars in the fund now. But, the time is growing short, and if we are to make the Chaplain's wish that "the bell will ring on Christmas morn" come true the'sailors on this station . . . both officers and enlisted... had better get hot and dig deep.
NAVY TO COOPERATE IN NATIONAL YOUTH MONTH
(SEA)-Indicating the Navy's approval of the National Youth Organization, 133 naval officers, designated as NAVLOS, have been assigned collateral duty as liaison officers with youth organizations throughout various naval establishments and commands in the continental U. S., its territories and possessions.
September has been set aside as Youth Month. In connection with Youth Organization activities, national representatives of the Boy's Forum recently paid an official visit to Secretary of the Navy John L. Sullivan.

The past week saw several changes in the bowling standings as bowlers improved their games and dethroned the early leaders.
In the race for individual honors the only holdover from last week's leaders is SSgt. Nordine of the Marines who still holds down the high game with his 232 score. White of Fleet Training Group replaced Chief Pulnik as holder of the high triple crown and by virtue of this high total raised his average enough to lead in that department also.
The Marines took over top spot from the NAS team during the week and dropped them into a tie with the NOB Chief's team for second place. No doubt, the coming week's games will change this picture a great deal but here are the standings at present. Team Won Lost Points Marines -------- 9 3 12

Chief North of VU-10 established a new record for the first 9 a couple of Sundays ago when he buried the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 7th and 9th holes for a 5 under par 29. Two other putts from 6 and 10 feet failed to drop in the cup by inches.
Chief North broke his own record of 30. He seems to think that if the greens had been cut on the 2nd and 9th holes, he would have broken the .18-hole record of 65 set last year by Lcdr. McWilliams.

ALL-NAVY ATHLETES REACHED OLYMPICS
FINALS
An officer and an enlisted man, both Navy Champions in their respective sports, 'survived the grueling competition of the 1948 Olympic games only to meet extremely narrow defeat in the decisive finals at London's Wembley stadium.
Ensign Robert Cowell, USN, of Pittsburgh, Pa., an instructor at the U. S. Naval Academy, swam one-tenth of a second behind Yale University's Allen Stack, who won the 100-meter backstroke title in a time of 1:06.4. Ensign Colwell, holder of the world's record of 60.4 for the 100-yard backstroke finished second in the Olympic 100meter event in 1:06.5. George Vallery of France was third with a time of 1:07.8.
In the Olympic ring, Horace Herring, SD1i USN, of St. Petersburg, Fla., was outpointed by Julius Torma of Czechoslovakia in a hotly contested split-decision verdict for the welterweight championship. Herring, the only American boxer to reach a final round, is attached to the U. S. Naval Station, San Diego, California.
William Bossio, SN, USN, serving with the USS Albany (CA-123), was defeated in an early elimination bout by Jane-Marie Grenot of France.
Three other Navy representatives who accompanied the U. S. Olympic squad as alternates and who were not called into active competition, were Lieutenant Walter Blattman, USN, gymnast; and Ensign Malcolm MacDonald, USN, and Midshipman John Fletcher, USN, wrestlers. The trio are from the U. S. Naval Academy.
Commander Slade D. Cutter, USN, of BuPers, head of the Navy sports programs, accompanied the Olympic team as the Navy's official representative. Commander Cutter, former Navy heavyyeight boxing champion and U. S. Naval Academy All-American tackle in 1935, qualified as an amateur boxing referee and judge and officiated at Olympic bouts.
Cowell and Herring were awarded silver medals for their second-place finals. All members of the team, as well as Commander Cutter, were presented participants' medals.
An interesting sidelight to the backstroke event, is that on 15 August in an international reunion meet at Colombes Stadium in Paris, France, site of the 1924 Olympics, a re-swim of the 100-meter backstroke race resulted in a duplication of the Olympic finish as far as place positions were concerned. However, in the Colombes pool, the time turned in by both Stack and Cowell was 1:08.8, with the winning slot being conceded to Stack, the Olympic title holder. France's Vallery again placed third in 1:09.6.

I am very happy to report that she is quite well now and arrived by MATS with their son Tuesday morning. Welcome to Guanatnamo, Mrs. Hill, we hope you will like it here. The lucky man to go on leave this week was J. R. Conard, he left on the plane with the inspection party last week. Four new men reported to the Squadron recently, they were: Antonio Campos, AD2; Robert Stewart, AD3; Thomas Webb, AD2; and Francis Wilhelmi, AD2. Welcome aboard fellows,we hope you will like the duty here. Have you noticed the new green Hudson around the Base, well it's proud owner is Lt. W. G. Esders, who has just reported aboard recently. Welcome aboard, Lt. Esders. Two baby boys OSPPAL made their appearance during the past week. William Emory Noblitt born 30 August to PR1 Wm. L. and Mrs. Noblitt; baby boy Pendleton born 1 Sept. to Mr. & Mrs. Pendleton. Lt. (jg) Dutcher has taken over the managership of the Hospital Baseball team which is in process of organization. Twenty-five men reported at the first meeting and it is felt that a championship team can be developed from the material. The Hospital Recreation Committee sponsored bingo games at the Hospital last week. The games were much enjoyed and the patients and staff appreciate the efforts of the committee. Capt. Robbins has returned from seven days TAD in Washington. The Captain reports a fine trip with the exception of some rough weather on the return flight. The Hospital Enlisted Men's Bowling Team after getting off to a slow start has begun "knocking them down". Two team members are in the first ten high averages, and they are expected to make like a rolling snowball from here on in.

E. E. Bosserman, USN (Protestant) LtCdr. Carl A. Herold, USN (Catholic) BIRTHDAY PARTY AT WINDMILL BEACH Windmill Beach was the scene of a birthday party, July 26 when members of the choir and their friends helped PFCs Bob Lewis and R. T. Watson celebrate. The boys' commanding officer was on hand with some interesting tales of his boot camp days and later military experiences. The party was scheduled for 1730 but transportation difficulties caused some to arrive late. The usual picnic supper of potato salad, pickles, weenies, hamburgers with onions and a jelly roll topped off by candles for the occasion, satisfied the healthy appetites of those present. The campfire cast its light on the groups of singers which, as might be expected since so many choir members were present, gathered to sing old favorite songs. Watson had his guitar all ready to accomanpy the singers but an unexpected accident broke one of the strings. However, barber shop quartettes popped up to sing such standbys as Shine On Harvest Moon, and Down by the Old Mill Stream. Of course in honor of the two Marines having birthdays, the Marines' Hymn was sung by all present as well as the inevitable Happy Birthday. As the dying embers of the once roaring campfire were extinguished, the party officially broke up. The ride back to the Base and the respective homes of the celebrants provided more opportunity to exercise the vocal cords and the open truck and sky, filled with stars led to such popular songs as Don't Fence Me In and Deep In The Heart of Texas. After the pipes really got cleaned out, we tackled such tunes as Apple Blossom Wedding, Let Me Call You Sweetheart, Night and Day, When You Were Sweet Sixteen and When Irish Eyes Are Smiling. It was a vocally worn out, but happy crew that climbed off the truck after the party. t Pave Two THE INDIAN Pare Two

THE INDIAN Pare Three ORDNANCE STUFF By Alston Jones There isn't very much to say about the Ordnance Department except for the "New Look" to be noticed everywhere you may turn around the vicinity of the Ordnance buildings. The "New Look" in this case does not subtract, but adds to the appearance on a whole, involving (as the saying goes) a lot of elbow grease. It is worth it though. The Man of the Week is ChGun A. P. Secondo, USN, whose primary duties are those of Mine Overhaul -Officer, and a very busy man in general. Gunner Secondo hails from Hornell, New York, and has to his credit a total of seventeen years and four months service. He enlisted in the Navy in April 1931, and has had almost a naval career of sea duty, having spent sixteen and a half years roaming the seven seas. He reported on board the Base in January 1948 and was assigned the duties 1he now holds, this being his first shore duty in a long time. He is a "plank owner" on three ships: USS Quincy, USS Russel, and the USS Fargo, and has served on nine naval vessels so far. In June 1948 he joined the Grand United Order of Married Men G. U. 0. M. M. -in other words, he wed charming Miss Jamie Johnson from Gilbert, North Carolina. Miss Johnson -Mrs. Secondo to you -is a nurse aboard the USS President Adams, and has been in the Navy for approximately three and a half years, fourteen months of which is credited to her as sea duty. She is a graduate of Columbia Hospital, Columbia, North Carolina where she studied nursing. Mrs. Secondo plans for all intents and purposes to resign in a month or so and join her husband as soon after as possible. The President Adams goes back and forth from Guantanamo Bay as you well know, but the happiest man on the Base is Gunner Secondo anytime the arrival of' the P. A. is announced. Would you blame him? After all two or three weeks is a very long time. The P. A.'s stay here is never long enough and there's always a very sad person at least for a couple of days after she leaves. The Gunner plans to make the little lady a home here as soon as she gets out and as far as one can see the sooner, the better. When asked what he though about his duty here, he remarked with a smile of satisfaction: "It's wonderful, not only as a duty station, but all the way around, and when my wife joins me it will be just grand." Congratulations are a bit tardy, but better late than never, so here's our hearty congratulations to Ch. Gun. and Mrs. Secondo 'for happiATTENTION OHIO VETERANS Ohio veterans of World War II are urged to submit changes of address to Director, World War II Compensation Fund, Columbus 16, Ohio. The claim number and address submitted with the application, as well as the new address should be included. A laxity in the above respect is resulting in considerable administrative delays, says the state director. Compensation is paid for active service time accrued between 7 December 1941 and 2 September 1945 at the rate of $10 per month for each month of domestic service, and $15 per month for each month of foreign service, with a maximum payable of $400. A girl was wearing two officer's silver bars pinned to her sweater. "Is your boy friend a lieutenant?" an acquaintance asked. "No," she replied, "two JG's." Small boy writing answers to an anatomy test: Your legs is what if you ain't got two pretty good ones, you can't get to first base and neither can your sister. Woman may be physically weaker than man, but she can put a cap on a fruit jar so tight he can't take it off. Officer: "Have you swabbed the deck and polished the brightwork?" Sailor: "Yes sir, and I've swept the horizon with my binoculars." Interested civilian: "And mate, what are you?" Sailor: "I'm a cook striker." Civilian: "My gosh, has the Navy got labor troubles, too?" ness beyond compare, and a pleasant tour of duty as well. Mr. Oswin L. Steele, Property and Supply Clerk for the Ordnance Department celebrated his fourth anniversary on the Base, and working for the Department, on 24 August 1948. Mr. Steele is from the Virgin Islands and was sent here to set up the Stock Recording System for the Naval Magazine, Naval Station. His services have been quite satisfactory and commendations are quite in order. Congratulations, keep up the good work. G. C. Pecuch, MN3, USN, of the Sixth Division walks around with his chest in the air these days, but who can blame the guy? Pecuch was a member of the Soft Ball Team from Guantanamo Bay that competed in the All Navy Soft Ball Tournament. He feels that even though the Guantanamo Team did not win in the finals, it was still something to have been chosen to go along. Better luck next time old boy. ELECTRONICS NEWS By "Irish" After a long, hard fight with the U. S. Navy, Jack Niebell finally got his leave. As usually is his habit, Jack is getting home the "hard way" .working his way up to Newport, R. I. on the USS Beatty. We wish him a good time ...and a speedy return! With almost everybody griping about the Naval Station movies, it's a lucky person that gets to sit in on one of Lieutenant Haglund's shows, as he is the best operator on the Base. "If you don't believe him," says Chase, ". ..just ask him." Bob Welsh, our "electronic yeoman," has finally finished his amplifier. We wish to congratulate him on a job well done. Anybody can go to school and learn to do a thing, but the man that teaches himself ...as Welsh and our shop striker, Bob Bowyer have done, deserve the credit. Bowyer is giving the techs in the shop some serious competition in radio repair work. The jingle of money heard in the shop is Bowyer making his fortune by repairing private radios. The imperturable Joe Sack is getting a wee bit perturbed over the WGBY transmitter. From the solder, wire and man-hours I've seen Joe putting into that thing, I'd call it more than a "transmitter by Sack," than a "Transmitter by Mikal of Miami." While we're speaking of Joe, I want to give him our belated congratulations on his eighth wedding anniversary. We are as anxious as Chaplain Bosserman for the Chime Fund to meet its mark, so theelectronic chimes can be sent to "Gtmo." Both Case and I are curious as to "how in heck do the darn things work?" I understand that there are eighteen hundred dollars in the fund now. But, the time is growing short, and if we are to make the Chaplain's wish that "the bell will ring on Christmas morn" come true the sailors on this station .both officers and enlisted .had better get hot and dig deep. NAVY TO COOPERATE IN NATIONAL YOUTH MONTH (SEA)-Indicating the Navy's approval of the National Youth Organization, 133 naval officers, designated as NAVLOS, have been assigned collateral duty as liaison officers with youth organizations throughout various naval establishments and commands in the continental U. S., its territories and possessions. September has been set aside as Youth Month. In connection with Youth Organization activities, national representatives of the Boy's Forum recently paid an official visit to Secretary of the Navy John L. Sullivan. THE INDIAN Pare Three

Page Four THE INDIAN Gm.By2Sp4-50 By Bud Johnson The past week saw several changes in the bowling standings as bowlers improved their games and dethroned the early leaders. In the race for individual honors the only holdover from last week's leaders is SSgt. Nordine of the Marines who still holds down the high game with his 232 score. White of Fleet Training Group replaced Chief Pulnik as holder of the high triple crown and by virtue of this high total raised his average enough to lead in that department also. The Marines took over top spot from the NAS team during the week and dropped them into a tie with the NOB Chief's team for second place. No doubt, the coming week's games will change this picture a great deal but here are the standings at present.

Two other putts from 6 and 10 feet failed to drop in the cup by inches. Chief North broke his own record of 30. He seems to think that if the greens had been cut on the 2nd and 9th holes, he would have broken the.18-hole record of 65 set last year by Ledr. McWilliams.

ALL-NAVY ATHLETES REACHED OLYMPICS FINALS An officer and an enlisted man, both Navy Champions in their respective sports, survived the grueling competition of the 1948 Olympic games only to meet extremely narrow defeat in the decisive finals at London's Wembley stadium. Ensign Robert Cowell, USN, of Pittsburgh, Pa., an instructor at the U. S. Naval Academy, swam one-tenth of a second behind Yale University's Allen Stack, who won the 100-meter backstroke title in a time of 1:06.4. Ensign Colwell, holder of the world's record of 60.4 for the 100-yard backstroke finished second in the Olympic 100meter event in 1:06.5. George Vallery of France was third with a time of 1:07.8. In the Olympic ring, Horace Herring, SD1, USN, of St. Petersburg, Fla., was outpointed by Julius Torma of Czechoslovakia in a hotly contested split-decision verdict for the welterweight championship. Herring, the only American boxer to reach a final round, is attached to the U. S. Naval Station, San Diego, California. William Bossio, SN, USN, serving with the USS Albany (CA-123), was defeated in an early elimination bout by Jane-Marie Grenot of France. Three other Navy representatives who accompanied the U. S. Olympic squad as alternates and who were not called into active competition, were Lieutenant Walter Blattman, USN, gymnast; and Ensign Malcolm MacDonald, USN, and Midshipman John Fletcher, USN, wrestlers. The trio are from the U. S. Naval Academy. Commander Slade D. Cutter, USN, of BuPers, head of the Navy sports programs, accompanied the Olympic team as the Navy's official representative. Commander Cutter, former Navy heavyweight boxing champion and U. S. Naval Academy All-American tackle in 1935, qualified as an amateur boxing referee and judge and officiated at Olympic bouts. Cowell and Herring were awarded silver medals for their second-place finals. All members of the team, as well as Commander Cutter, were presented participants' medals. An interesting sidelight to the backstroke event, is that on 15 August in an international reunion meet at Colombes Stadium in Paris, France, site of the 1924 Olympics, a re-swim of the 100-meter backstroke race resulted in a duplication of the Olympic finish as far as place positions were concerned. However, in the Colombes pool, the time turned in by both Stack and Cowell was 1:08.8, with the winning slot being conceded to Stack, the Olympic title holder. France's Vallery again placed third in 1:09.6. NAVAL STATION LYCEUM Sun. 5 Sept. to Sat. 11 Sept.
