SHOPPER'S AIDE SET
UP IN NAVY EXCHANGE
LT K.W. Strebel, Officer in
Charge of the local Navy Exchange announced late this week an innovation to go into effect Monday morning, February 6. This latest idea to be put into practical operation is a Shoppers' Guide.
Mrs. Colleen Jones, a civilian
employee of the Naval Station Exchange store will occupy a table in the store and will give out helpful hints to buyers who can't decide or don't know what to get mom, dad or their wives and sweethearts. In addition Mrs. Jones will be able to tell you of the very latest arrivals and the good and bad features of different makes of
the same item. Suggestions and
complaints will also be handled by Mrs. Jones for those Navy Exchange patrons who wish to obtain types of merchandise not carried
by the Navy Exchanges.


PROTESTANT CHOIR
PLANS FOR EASTER

The Protestant Chapel Choir has selected for its major work during the Easter and Lenten Season this year, the Cantata, "The Message of the Cross", composed by J. Sheldon Scott. The scores have been received recently, and it is expected that work on this production will begin immediately.
This work, to be presented on Good Friday afternoon, 7 April 1950, is of a different type of musical offering in that it is a LiturgyCantata; that is, it is a sacred musical service, which the minister and the congregation take part with the choir, by means of responsive readings. It differs from the straight Cantata in that its thought-theme is developed principally through the responsive readings, the music being largely antiphonal and supplementary. Whereas in the Cantata the members of the congregation are listeners or observers only, in the Liturgy-Cantata they are enabled to take an active part in the performance. The alternation of music and reading affords a variety which both maintains interest and heightens the solemnity and dramatic effect of climactic passages. The music is necessarily simple and devoid of elaborate development, serving to illustrate and emphasize the scenes described in the readings.
The composer introduces vocal variety with interesting and effective use of a number of solo passages, trios and duets, in addition to the expected choruses and responses that are characteristic of this type of composition. Though the music is relatively simple, in contrast to the Christmas Cantata recently presented, that fact in itself makes the singing more difficult. The effectiveness of the work lies thereby in the interpretation and the skillful execution by the singers. Beginning the study of the Cantata this early it is expected that no extra rehearsals will be required.
All persons attached to or residing on this Base who are interested in singing with the Choir, whether or not they have


UN DELEGATE AUSTIN VISITS GUANTANAMO

Tuesday morning at 1113 an Air Force C-47 landed at McCalla Field with Ex-Senator Warren Austin, U.S. delegate to the United Nations, General Assembly aboard. Mr. Austin and his party stopped here for lunch before continuing, on their trip. The UN representative was on an informal tour of the Caribbean.
The delegate's party was met by the commanding officers of all Base commands, the NOB Band and a special Marine honor guard. Shortly after lunch he departed for St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands.
It was not known at press time whether Mr. Austin's party would pay a return visit to the Base on their return trip to the United States or whether they would fly directly to Washington.

TRAINING GROUP
TRIVIALS

Training Group has an Enlisted men's bowling team; no, Training Group has three Enlisted men's bowling teams. We have a Chiefs' team, a Blue Jackets' team and a team made up of both Blue Jackets and Chiefs. The team captains are: Ryan, ETC; Baczkiewicz, DC1; and Gugliemo, BMC, respectively. The teams have been practicing for the past two weeks and by the looks of the score sheets they've got plenty on the ball. Although all three show good promise, Bacziewicz's team has earned the number one spot with averages well over the 150 mark.
For those who are wondering, Coe, RMC is resting and relaxing in the hospital with pneumonia but he is recovering with the aid of lots of reading material. Hurry and get well.
"First prize" goes to E. W. Bennett, FCC. With his service number ending in 009, he is the first to receive his N.S.L.I. dividends.
Chief and Mrs. Oliverio are happy to announce the birth of their daughter, Linda Ann at the U. S. Naval Hospital, Gtmo. Bay, Cuba. This is the Oliverio's second child.
It appears that a certain Chief Yeoman is headed for a period of indoctrination in Washington, D. C. and ultimate assignment to a Naval Mission in Europe.
I see that the prayers of one Bittle, EM3, have been answered in that his swap to get aboard the USS Witek has been approved.
Come this Sunday we will be saying good-by to Finnegan, DC2 and Moreno, EP3 who are being transferred to COC Training Center, Beavertail Point, Jamestown, R.I. for duty.


ATTENTION ALL
GRANDSTAND OFFICIALS

Do You Know The Rules?
Recently, here as invariably will happen most anywhere, the enjoyment of the game is squelched by anonymous grandstand officials. It has been pointed out by officials that some of the "fouls" called by the grandstand officials have been tossed out of the game altogether.
One of the more prominent "calls" made by these officials is the "straddle the line" violation. This was a violation of basketball rules until it was tossed out of the game some three years ago. Those who were here last year will remember that it was called by league officials in league play last year, however this was an error on their part. Straddling the line is now allowed sofar as the player in such a position does not move the fore foot back along side the other in back court.
The Dribbler
Another is the actions of the dribbler and whose responsibility it is to give way, the offensive or defensive player. According to an official intreperation of Rule 4 Section 5, "If the dribbler's action is such that he gets his head and shoulders by his opponent, without contact, and if his direction is such that contact would occur only because of the defensive player's movements, the greater responsibility for the contact shifts to the defensive player."
Another ruling the grandstanders don't seem to entirely understand is the guarding techniques. Rule 10 Section 7 states that "a player shall not hold; push; charge; trip; impede the progress of an opponent by an extended arm, shoulder, hip or knee or by bending the body in other than a normal position; nor use any rough tactics."
The other major reversal suffered by the grandstand officials is that in the event a violation of the rules such as travelling, etc. is called by one official and at the same instant the other official detects a foul on the part of a player on the court, the personal foul takes precedence over the
violation.
Another change in the rules coming under section five of rule eight says that personal fouls that occur during the last 2 minutes of the game or overtime periods are to be penalized in the same way as technical fouls; that is, the free throw or throws must be taken, and whether made or missed, the ball is to be put in play by a throw-in at mid-court by any member of the free-thrower's team.
Those are the major rule changes with which you may not be familiar. Remember this before you openly criticize the officials,. Everyone makes mistakes-even you!

TEEN-AGE ROUNDUP
By Eunice Besse
The departure of the USS President Adams has left quite a few broken hearts. It also caused mucho tardies. Everyone went down to see Phyliss and Franklin Hummell, Holly Jackson, Thomas Beadling and Jill Hiers off on what promises to be a short but exciting trip back to the good old Estados Unidos. But there is a bright side to the picture. The President Adams brought us two new boys, Clyde and David Whiteman. Welcome to the Base boys, we hope you like it here.
We all hope that Ramon's finger heals soon 'cause we need him on the basketball court. He claims it wouldn't have happened if Ann had been here in Gtmo. instead of Port au Prince.
Eddie Pitts got kind of banged up when we played the Marines. Henry Crommelin made his first basket of the season - Congratulations Henry we'll be looking for more of these from you, now that you've got the hang of it. Seems to me that Skiddy Masterson sure out maneuvered those big Marines.
Joan McNeal is moving again. Those McNeal's are certainly the most restless people I ever heard tell of.
Last Thursday after the pictures were taken, the cheerleaders got their costumes mixed up and Betty Parks came out with a skirt that fit her like a pup tent.
The shorthand class is getting rugged. Charlene and Kay are dropping out. It appears they can't cope with their schedule and short-hand too.
We sure are glad to see those new books in the library. They have all kinds-sports, novels and non-fiction. Thanks to Mrs. Hollweck our shelves are being filled with very up to date and interesting books.
Smart men never argue with their wives; they know that all they can prove is they married a dumb woman.

some nails.

THIRD GRADERS ARE
NATURAL ACTORS

There has been so much favorable comment and praise concerning the performance of Mrs. Edrie Delgado's Third Grade pupils in the presentation of their Christmas Program we feel what it should be passed on to those on the Base who were not present. The program began at 1330 on 21 December with parents of the pupils as an appreciative audience.
The first play, "The Pioneer's
Christmas", was presented with Sandra Craig as Mother Smith, Michael Piel as Father Smith, Juliane McLellen as Deborah Smith, Stephen Machtolff as Jack Smith, Dolores Sierra as Maxy Smith, Carl Heimer as Blue Jay, Thomas Irwin as Black Wolf, and
Remy Morales as Red Fox.
The following poems were recited: "Signs of Christmas" by Ralph Hardin, "A Christmas Carol" by John Wine, "Around the Christmas Tree' by Norma Cassity, "Long, Long, Ago" by Jean Wilkins, "Beggar's Rhyme" by Sandra Wideberg, "First Christmas" by George Swallow, "At Christmas Time" by Dolores Sierra, and "Our Drums" by
Patrick Lanigan.
The second play, "The Real Santa
Claus", followed the recitation of poems with Curtis Powell as Santa, Linda Veach as Mrs. Jones (A Poor Widow), Richard Crocker as Richard, Jean Wilkins as Mary, John Wine as Donald, Anna Pendleton as Ann, Richard Bergman as Joe, Gwendolyn Gould, Mona Bailey, Helga Heimer, Sandra Wideberg, Norma Cassity, Sandra Carter, Marva Brown, as "The Girls", and Patrick Lanigan, Jan Anthony, Jay Radcliffe, Ralph Hardin, Lewis Claar, Jimmy Cooke, Stephen Wood, Joseph Pitt, George Swallow, and
Robert Smith as "The Boys".
Music was by Mrs. C. E. Van
Bibber and included "We Three Kings of Orient Are", and "0 Come All Ye Faithful". Between Scenes I and II the Chorus sang " 0 Little Town of Bethlehem" and "Silent Night" with the second play being
concluded with "Jingle Bells".


HOSPITAL NOTES

Nursery Notes: The first baby boy of 1950 was born 1 February to GMC and Mrs. James Johnsonnamed, David Drexel.
LTJG J. R. Rankin, MSC returned last Friday from fifteen days emergency leave in the U. S. where Mrs. Rankin's father died. LTJG D.W. Spicer and Mrs. Spicer were notified this week of the death of Mrs. Spicer's father. The entire staff extend their sympathy to Dr. and Mrs. Spicer and Mr. and Mrs. Rankin.
LTJG R. E. Hunter and LTJG 0. E. Smith have been appointed representatives from this activity on the committee for the forthcoming Mardi Gras. All hands are looking forward to an even bigger and better carnival than that of last year.
There are some pretty long faces around the hospital this week. That latest AlNav on qualifications for advancement in rating misses most of our men by just one day. Cheer up, fellows-it all counts on thirty.

BOY SCOUT NOTES

A week ago Thursday night the four patrol leaders had a meeting at Henry Crommelin's house. They were told that the regular troop meeting would take place the next night at Windmill beach instead of the NOB sailboat locker. The patrol leaders were also informed as to what the boys would wear and bring because we were to play "capture the flag".
We then discussed the weiner roast which will be held on February 19 at the racetrack. There were vague discussions on a father-son softball game, a few races among the boys and perhaps a Scoutcraft exhibit. We had already been told the price of the food.
The next night, Friday the 27th of January, the Scouts all met at 6:30 p.m. by the quonset hut near the sailboat locker. Here we assembled while Mr. Abbott, our Scoutmaster, checked us off. At 6:45 we climbed aboard a truck from NAS transportation, whom all of us wish to thank for letting us use their truck.
Upon arriving at Windmill Beach, we built a fire, using wood that had been chopped by one of the Asst. Scoutmasters and three of the Scouts that afternoon. The troop was all gathered together while the rules of "capture the flag" were explained. The game lasted about an hour with, believe it or not, few casulties. One of the Asst. Scoutmasters, Jerry Dixon ran into some cactus at the end of the game.
About 9:30 the truck came back and took us to the meeting place where the Scouts caught buses to their homes.


GIRL SCOUT NOTES
By Adeline Irwin
"Jogging Along Josey" is not some one named Joe, bouncing along on an old work horse, even tho' it sounds like it. It is an action song that makes everybody relax and enjoy life's blessings. The Girl Scouts sang this and the other scout songs with a great deal of enthusiasm at their regular weekly meeting Friday, 27 January.
We all had oodles of fun playing the Raisin Relay, where if you won, you were allowed three raisins, and the Automobile Game. This last game mentioned seems to be a favorite and can be played with variations.
The names the girls selected for their Patrols are as follows: Patrol No. 1 "Cotton Tails", Patrol No. 2 "Cherokees", Patrol No. 3 "Apaches", Patrol No. 4 "Siboney Indians." Until uniforms are decided upon the troop name and crest will not be chosen.
The meeting closed with a moment of silence while the Goodnite Circle was executed.
Come on, all you Mothers of Brownies, how's to give the writer a call at 343 ?
TENTH DIVISION NEWS
By B.W. Richards, YNC
The Tenth Division held a picnic Tuesday of this week at the race track; aside from some scratches suffered in errors made while playing soft ball, there were no immediate casualties. However, some of the younger (?) men have been hobbling around like old grandfathers, and by now, some probably are on crutches. Mrs. Malley served as umpire for two fast games, in which Greenawalt pitched for the losing team, and was fairly knocked out of the box, while Tye and Oswell pitched the winning games. All hands who attended enjoyed themselves immensely.
With the increase in number of cars impounded in the Base Police parking lot, the place is beginning to look like a used car lot. A few banner signs would make it resemble one of those establishments in Miami, or even Philadelphia. Three men from the Harbor Patrol of the Base Police, Agalia, Herb and Williams, have volunteered their names for assignment to duty in San Juan, P. R. If selected, it is anticipated that they will enjoy another tour of duty in a desirable locality. One Base Policeman, who wants to remain incognito, was passing out cigars here the other day. Congratulations, Pappy; a late beginning is better than none.
With stray cattle running loose in Newtown the last few nights, the Base Police have been considering trading in their jeeps for ponies. A better suggestion would be to hold a few barbeques, at least until the supply of beef runs out.

VU-10 TAKES OVER TOP
SPOT IN BASKETBALL
Airdales Wreck Flyers, Marines To Remain Unbeaten
VU-10 again occupied first place in the Base basketball league today as the result of two important victories this week. The maroon clad quintet began their winning ways this week with a 54-33 kayo of the Naval Air Station on Monday night and copped it with a victory over the Marines on Wednesday night.
The defending champs came back from the AirLant tourney with a mediocre showing and the complaint that they were off in their shooting. By Monday night however they had regained their eye and fans who witnessed the Flyer fracas were wondering if they ever missed a shot. With, their fast breaking offensive operating effectively the VU-10 five had amassed an 18-2 lead at the end of the first quarter. During that time NAS had been in the game only briefly when they lead for about a minute in the early minutes of the quarter, 2-1.
By halftime the Flyers had begun to regain some of their poise and were trailing by ten points, 22-12. The third quarter ran much along the lines of the second in that as the Flyers would cut the lead down to seven or eight points, VU-10 would sink two or three baskets in quick succession to subdue any rally the Flyers might have underway. Even midway the fourth quarter there was only a seven point gap between the two teams but the defending' champions splurged in the latter part of the quarter to win handily. I
Ernest "Stubby" Barriochoa displayed a brillant hook shot to pace the victors with 13 points. Eugene Nelson led the Flyers with 10. Charlie Smith, dynamic little guard of the Flyers, kept the NAS team as close as they were with allaround play especially on the defensive side of the ledger. More than a few times he leaped high in the air to take a pass or rebound away from a larger and taller opponent.
Marines Win
In the first game Monday the Marines clipped the High School quintet by a 50-35 count. The lead see-sawed back and forth the first half and the High School cagers chopped the lead down in the final half before a final spurt carried the Marines to their second victory. Ed Ondrasik led the High. School offensive dropping in 22 points


while Hill clipped 16 for the Marines.
Wednesday night, the defending champs turned back the Marines by 44-30 in a rough and tumble game which saw almost 35 fouls committed by both sides even then that was less than half of the number actually committed. The scarlet and gold clad cagers of Captain Frank Sullivan, usually known for their rough style of play were outdone in that department virtually all night by VU-10.
The defending champs jumped a-. head when Johnston sneaked past Marine defenders for a lay-up shot but the game was tied up seconds later when Dukes, slid by a VU-10 defender and hit the bucket for two points. Shortly after that a foul shot put the Marines ahead by 3-2. VU-10 came back to go ahead, only to lose the lead midway of the quarter as the Marines posted a 7-5 lead and had that cut to 7-6 at the end of the first quarter. VU-10 quickly changed things at the beginning of the second quarter. With their fast break working smoothly they hit for four quick field goals in succession to go out in front to stay by a 14-7 count. At halftime they were leading the Marines by a 19-10 count.
A burst of offensive power at the beginning of the third stanza brought the Marines to within five points of the Airdales but that was as close as they ever got. Hill, pivotman for the Marines fouled out early in the third quarter and that didn't help his team at all. The third period wound up with VU-10 out in front by 27-17.
Fast Break is Effective
VU-10 continued to shake loose their fast breaking offensive for basket after basket to win going away. The final count again, 44-30. Waters, VU-10 pivotman led the scorers for the night registering 17 points with Koehler hitting for 10 to take second high on the VU-10 team. Dukes led the way for the Marines sinking 13 points while Van Winkle was clipping off 9 more for the Marines.
In the preliminary game Wednesday night the Naval Station chalked up their second victory of the year by downing NOB School by a 46-25 margin. Buddy Good led the victors with 14 counters while Tibodeau and Tinkey were next with 8 and 6 points respectfully. Ed Ondrasik and Eddie Groome accounted for most of High School's points. Groome hit for 12 points and Ondrasik swished the netting for 11 more.

second half to down the Naval Station in the first game by the close margin of two points, 35-33. The Training Group cagers had been on the short end of a 17-9 score at halftime. Bradfield led the Naval Station in their futile attempt at victory by bucketing 15 points with Jim Bettwy next in line with seven points. For the victors, Croft dumped in ten points while Pauquet and Haefner each added nine points to the Training Group total.
The Hospital clipped NSD in the second game of the night by a 59-34 count. Luster of NSD was the high scorer of the night with 17 points. Jack Wilson and Gene Reardon of the Hospital each posted 16 points as their night's work while Martell of the NSD quintet and Major of the Hospital each hit for ten points for their respective teams. The Hospital held a commanding 20-1 lead at the end of the first quarter and led by 38-9 at halftime.
NSD was to have met NAS and Hospital was slated to battle the Training Group Thursday night, after The Indian had gone to press.

From there the flight continues on to Patuxent River, Maryland via Norfolk, arriving in Norfolk at 1900 and at Patuxent River at 2100. SHOPPER'S AIDE SET UP IN NAVY EXCHANGE LT K. W. Strebel, Officer in Charge of the local Navy Exchange announced late this week an innovation to go into effect Monday morning, February 6. This latest idea to be put into practical operation is a Shoppers' Guide. Mrs. Colleen Jones, a civilian employee of the Naval Station Exchange store will occupy a table in the store and will give out helpful hints to buyers who can't decide or don't know what to get mom, dad or their wives and sweethearts. In addition Mrs. Jones will be able to tell you of the very latest arrivals and the good and bad features of different makes of Sthe same item. Suggestions and complaints will also be handled by Mrs. Jones for those Navy Exchange patrons who wish to obtain types of merchandise not carried by the Navy Exchanges. PROTESTANT CHOIR PLANS FOR EASTER The Protestant Chapel Choir has selected for its major work during the Easter and Lenten Season this year, the Cantata, "The Message of the Cross", composed by J. Sheldon Scott. The scores have been received recently, and it is expected that work on this production will begin immediately. This work, to be presented on Good Friday afternoon, 7 April 1950, is of a different type of musical offering in that it is a LiturgyCantata; that is, it is a sacred musical service, which the minister and the congregation take part with the choir, by means of responsive readings. It differs from the straight Cantata in that its thought-theme is developed principally through the responsive readings, the music being largely antiphonal and supplementary. Whereas in the Cantata the members of the congregation are listeners or observers only, in the Liturgy-Cantata they are enabled to take an active part in the performance. The alternation of music and reading affords a variety which both maintains interest and heightens the solemnity and dramatic effect of climactic passages. The music is necessarily simple and devoid of elaborate development, serving to illustrate and emphasize the scenes described in the readings. The composer introduces vocal variety with interesting and effective use of a number of solo passages, trios and duets, in addition to the expected choruses and responses that are characteristic of this type of composition. Though the music is relatively simple, in contrast to the Christmas Cantata recently presented, that fact in itself makes the singing more difficult. The effectiveness of the work lies thereby in the interpretation and the skillful execution by the singers. Beginning the study of the Cantata this early it is expected that no extra rehearsals will be required. All persons attached to or residing on this Base who are interested in singing with the Choir, whether or not they have UN DELEGATE AUSTIN VISITS GUANTANAMO Tuesday morning at 1113 an Air Force C-47 landed at McCalla Field with Ex-Senator Warren Austin, U. S. delegate to the United Nations General Assembly aboard. Mr. Austin and his party stopped here for lunch before continuing on their trip. The UN representative was on an informal tour of the Caribbean. The delegate's party was met by the commanding officers of all Base commands, the NOB Band and a special Marine honor guard. Shortly after lunch he departed for St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands. It was not known at press time whether Mr. Austin's party would pay a return visit to the Base on their return trip to the United States or whether they would fly directly to Washington.

TRAINING GROUP TRIVIALS Training Group has an Enlisted men's bowling team; no, Training Group has three Enlisted men's bowling teams. We have a Chiefs' team, a Blue Jackets' team and a team made up of both Blue Jackets and Chiefs. The team captains are: Ryan, ETC; Baczkiewiez, DC1; and Gugliemo, BMC, respectively. The teams have been practicing for the past two weeks and by the looks of the score sheets they've got plenty on the ball. Although all three show good promise, Bacziewicz's team has earned the number one spot with averages well over the 150 mark. For those who are wondering, Coe, RMC is resting and relaxing in the hospital with pneumonia but he is recovering with the aid of lots of reading material. Hurry and get well. "First prize" goes to E. W. Bennett, FCC. With his service number ending in 009, he is the first to receive his N.S.L.I. dividends. Chief and Mrs. Oliverio are happy to announce the birth of their daughter, Linda Ann at the U. S. Naval Hospital, Gtmo. Bay, Cuba. This is the Oliverio's second child. It appears that a certain Chief Yeoman is headed for a period of indoctrination in Washington, D. C. and ultimate assignment to a Naval Mission in Europe. I see that the prayers of one Bittle, EM3, have been answered in that his swap to get aboard the USS Witek has been approved. Come this Sunday we will be saying good-by to Finnegan, DC2 and Moreno, EP3 who are being transferred to COC Training Center, Beavertail Point, Jamestown, R.I. for duty. ATTENTION ALL GRANDSTAND OFFICIALS Do You Know The Rules? Recently, here as invariably will happen most anywhere, the enjoyment of the game is squelched by anonymous grandstand officials. It has been pointed out by officials that some of the "fouls" called by the grandstand officials have been tossed out of the game altogether. One of the more prominent "calls" made by these officials is the "straddle the line" violation. This was a violation of basketball rules until it was tossed out of the game some three years ago. Those who were here last year will remember that it was called by league officials in league play last year, however this was an error on their part. Straddling the line is now allowed sofar as the player in such a position does not move the fore foot back along side the other in back court. The Dribbler Another is the actions of the dribbler and whose responsibility it is to give way, the offensive or defensive player. According to an official intreperation of Rule 4 Section 5, "If the dribbler's action is such that he gets his head and shoulders by his opponent, without contact, and if his direction is such that contact would occur only because of the defensive player's movements, the greater responsibility for the contact shifts to the defensive player." Another ruling the grandstanders don't seem to entirely understand is the guarding techniques. Rule 10 Section 7 states that "a player shall not hold; push; charge; trip; impede the progress of an opponent by an extended arm, shoulder, hip or knee or by bending the body in other than a normal position; nor use any rough tactics." The other major reversal suffered by the grandstand officials is that in the event a violation of the rules such as travelling, etc. is called by one official and at the same instant the other official detects a foul on the part of a player on the court, the personal foul takes precedence over the violation. Another change in the rules coming under section five of rule eight says that personal fouls that occur during the last 2 minutes of the game or overtime periods are to be penalized in the same way as technical fouls; that is, the free throw or throws must be taken, and whether made or missed, the ball is to be put in play by a throw-in at mid-court by any member of the free-thrower's team. Those are the major rule changes with which you may not be familiar. Remember this before you openly criticize the officials,, Everyone makes mistakes-even you!

W. FAULK, USN (Protestant) LCDR Carl A. Herold, USN (Catholic) TEEN-AGE ROUNDUP By Eunice Besse The departure of the USS President Adams has left quite a few broken hearts. It also caused mucho tardies. Everyone went down to see Phyliss and Franklin Hummell, Holly Jackson, Thomas Beadling and Jill Hiers off on what promises to be a short but exciting trip back to the good old Estados Unidos. But there is a bright side to the picture. The President Adams brought us two new boys, Clyde and David Whiteman. Welcome to the Base boys, we hope you like it here. We all hope that Ramon's finger heals soon 'cause we need him on the basketball court. He claims it wouldn't have happened if Ann had been here in Gtmo. instead of Port au Prince. Eddie Pitts got kind of banged up when we played the Marines. Henry Crommelin made his first basket of the season -Congratulations Henry we'll be looking for more of these from you, now that you've got the hang of it. Seems to me that Skiddy Masterson sure out maneuvered those big Marines. Joan McNeal is moving again. Those McNeal's are certainly the most restless people I ever heard tell of. Last Thursday after the pictures were taken, the cheerleaders got their costumes mixed up and Betty Parks came out with a skirt that fit her like a pup tent. The shorthand class is getting rugged. Charlene and Kay are dropping out. It appears they can't cope with their schedule and short-hand too. We sure are glad to see those new books in the library. They have all kinds-sports, novels and non-fiction. Thanks to Mrs. Hollweek our shelves are being filled with very up to date and interesting books. Smart men never argue with their wives; they know that all they can prove is they married a dumb woman. S S S Page Two Saturday, 4 February 1950 THE IND1AN

Saturday, 4 February 1950 THE INDIAN Pare Three S LITTLE THEATRE NOTES By Consuelo E. Plank On Monday evening, January 23, the first reading of the latest presentation of the Little Theatre took place. Casting was completed by the end of the same week. At the present time, the members of the cast of "Room Service" are hard at work four nights a week on one of Broadway's best comedies. We hope you will enjoy it as well as they who are rehearsing. Jovial Ken Allen is directing. We still need many behind the scenes, so come on out and help dab a little paint and bang on some nails. .THIRD GRADERS ARE NATURAL ACTORS There has been so much favorable comment and praise concerning the performance of Mrs. Edrie Delgado's Third Grade pupils in the presentation of their Christmas Program we feel what it should be passed on to those on the Base who were not present. The program began at 1330 on 21 December with parents of the pupils as an appreciative audience. The first play, "The Pioneer's Christmas", was presented with Sandra Craig as Mother Smith, Michael Piel as Father Smith, Juliane McLellen as Deborah Smith, Stephen Machtolff as Jack Smith, Dolores Sierra as Mary Smith, Carl Heimer as Blue Jay, Thomas Irwin as Black Wolf, and Remy Morales as Red Fox. The following poems were recited: "Signs of Christmas" by Ralph Hardin, "A Christmas Carol" by John Wine, "Around the Christmas Long, Ago" by Jean Wilkins, "Beggar's Rhyme" by Sandra Wideberg, "First Christmas" by George Swallow, "At Christmas Time" by Dolores Sierra, and "Our Drums" by Patrick Lanigan. The second play, "The Real Santa Claus", followed the recitation of poems with Curtis Powell as Santa, Linda Veach as Mrs. Jones (A Poor Widow), Richard Crocker as Richard, Jean Wilkins as Mary, John Wine as Donald, Anna Pendleton as Ann, Richard Bergman as Joe, Gwendolyn Gould, Mona Bailey, Helga Heimer, Sandra Wideberg, Norma Cassity, Sandra Carter, Marva Brown, as "The Girls", and Patrick Lanigan, Jan Anthony, Jay Radcliffe, Ralph Hardin, Lewis Claar, Jimmy Cooke, Stephen Wood, Joseph Pitt, George Swallow, and Robert Smith as "The Boys". Music was by Mrs. C. E. Van Bibber and included "We Three Kings of Orient Are", and "0 Come All Ye Faithful". Between Scenes I and II the Chorus sang 0 Little Town of Bethlehem" and "Silent Night" with the second play being concluded with "Jingle Bells". HOSPITAL NOTES Nursery Notes: The first baby boy of 1950 was born 1 February to GMC and Mrs. James Johnsonnamed, David Drexel. LTJG J. R. Rankin, MSC returned last Friday from fifteen days emergency leave in the U. S. where Mrs. Rankin's father died. LTJG D. W. Spicer and Mrs. Spicer were notified this week of the death of Mrs. Spicer's father. The entire staff extend their sympathy to Dr. and Mrs. Spicer and Mr. and Mrs. Rankin. LTJG R. E. Hunter and LTJG O. E. Smith have been appointed representatives from this activity on the committee for the forthcoming Mardi Gras. All hands are looking forward to an even bigger and better carnival than that of last year. There are some pretty long faces around the hospital this week. That latest A1Nav on qualifications for advancement in rating misses most of our men by just one day. Cheer up, fellows-it all counts on thirty. BOY SCOUT NOTES A week ago Thursday night the four patrol leaders had a meeting at Henry Crommelin's house. They were told that the regular troop meeting would take place the next night at Windmill beach instead of the NOB sailboat locker. The patrol leaders were also informed as to what the boys would wear and bring because we were to play "capture the flag". We then discussed the weiner roast which will be held on February 19 at the racetrack. There were vague discussions on a father-son softball game, a few races among the boys and perhaps a Scoutcraft exhibit. We had already been told the price of the food. The next night, Friday the 27th of January, the Scouts all met at 6:30 p.m. by the quonset hut near the sailboat locker. Here we assembled while Mr. Abbott, our Scoutmaster, checked us off. At 6:45 we climbed aboard a truck from NAS transportation, whom all of us wish to thank for letting us use their truck. Upon arriving at Windmill Beach, we built a fire, using wood that had been chopped by one of the Asst. Scoutmasters and three of the Scouts that afternoon. The troop was all gathered together while the rules of "capture the flag" were explained. The game lasted about an hour with, believe it or not, few casulties. One of the Asst. Scoutmasters, Jerry Dixon ran into some cactus at the end of the game. About 9:30 the truck came back and took us to the meeting place where the Scouts caught buses to their homes. GIRL SCOUT NOTES By Adeline Irwin "Jogging Along Josey" is not some one named Joe, bouncing along on an old work horse, even tho' it sounds like it. It is an action song that makes everybody relax and enjoy life's blessings. The Girl Scouts sang this and the other scout songs with a great deal of enthusiasm at their regular weekly meeting Friday, 27 January. We all had oodles of fun playing the Raisin Relay, where if you won, you were allowed three raisins, and the Automobile Game. This last game mentioned seems to be a favorite and can be played with variations. The names the girls selected for their Patrols are as follows: Patrol No. 1 "Cotton Tails", Patrol No. 2 "Cherokees", Patrol No. 3 "Apaches", Patrol No. 4 "Siboney Indians." Until uniforms are decided upon the troop name and crest will not be chosen. The meeting closed with a moment of silence while the Goodnite Circle was executed. Come on, all you Mothers of Brownies, how's to give the writer a call at 343 ? TENTH DIVISION NEWS By B. W. Richards, YNC The Tenth Division held a picnic Tuesday of this week at the race track; aside from some scratches suffered in errors made while playing soft ball, there were no immediate casualties. However, some of the younger (?) men have been hobbling around like old grandfathers, and by now, some probably are on crutches. Mrs. Malley served as umpire for two fast games, in which Greenawalt pitched for the losing team, and was fairly knocked out of the box, while Tye and Oswell pitched the winning games. All hands who attended enjoyed themselves immensely. With the increase in number of cars impounded in the Base Police parking lot, the place is beginning to look like a used car lot. A few banner signs would make it resemble one of those establishments in Miami, or even Philadelphia. Three men from the Harbor Patrol of the Base Police, Agalia, Herb and Williams, have volunteered their names for assignment to duty in San Juan, P. R. If selected, it is anticipated that they will enjoy another tour of duty in a desirable locality. One Base Policeman, who wants to remain incognito, was passing out cigars here the other day. Congratulations, Pappy; a late beginning is better than none. With stray cattle running loose in Newtown the last few nights, the Base Police have been considering trading in their jeeps for ponies. A better suggestion would be to hold a few barbeques, at least until the supply of beef runs out. Saturday, 4 February 1950 THE INDIAN Page Three

Saturday 4 Februar 1950 THE INDIANGo. VU-10 TAKES OVER TOP SPOT IN BASKETBALL Airdales Wreck Flyers, Marines To Remain Unbeaten VU-10 again occupied first place in the Base basketball league today as the result of two important victories this week. The maroon clad quintet began their winning ways this week with a 54-33 kayo of the Naval Air Station on Monday night and copped it with a victory over the Marines on Wednesday night. The defending champs came back from the AirLant tourney with a mediocre showing and the complaint that they were off in their shooting. By Monday night however they had regained their eye and fans who witnessed the Flyer fracas were wondering if they ever missed a shot. With their fast breaking offensive operating effectively the VU-10 five had amassed an 18-2 lead at the end of the first quarter. During that time NAS had been in the game only briefly when they lead for about a minute in the early minutes of the quarter, 2-1. By halftime the Flyers had begun to regain some of their poise and were trailing by ten points, 22-12. The third quarter ran much along the lines of the second in that as the Flyers would cut the lead down to seven or eight points, VU-10 would sink two or three baskets in quick succession to subdue any rally the Flyers might have underway. Even midway the fourth quarter there was only a seven point gap between the two teams but the defending" champions splurged in the latter part of the quarter to win handily. Ernest "Stubby" Barriochoa displayed a brillant hook shot to pace the victors with 13 points. Eugene Nelson led the Flyers with 10. Charlie Smith, dynamic little guard of the Flyers, kept the NAS team as close as they were with allaround play especially on the defensive side of the ledger. More than a few times he leaped high in the air to take a pass or rebound away from a larger and taller opponent. Marines Win In the first game Monday the Marines clipped the High School quintet by a 50-35 count. The lead see-sawed back and forth the first half and the High School cagers chopped the lead down in the final half before a final spurt carried the Marines to their second victory. Ed Ondrasik led the High, School offensive dropping in 22 points while Hill clipped 16 for the Marines. Wednesday night, the defending champs turned back the Marines by 44-30 in a rough and tumble game which saw almost 35 fouls committed by both sides even then that was less than half of the number actually committed. The scarlet and gold clad cagers of Captain Frank Sullivan, usually known for their rough style of play were outdone in that department virtually all night by VU-10. The defending champs jumped ahead when Johnston sneaked past Marine defenders for a lay-up shot but the game was tied up seconds later when Dukes, slid by a VU-10 defender and hit the bucket for two points. Shortly after that a foul shot put the Marines ahead by 3-2. VU-10 came back to go ahead, only to lose the lead midway of the quarter as the Marines posted a 7-5 lead and had that cut to 7-6 at the end of the first quarter. VU-10 quickly changed things at the beginning of the second quarter. With their fast break working smoothly they hit for four quick field goals in succession to go out in front to stay by a 14-7 count. At halftime they were leading the Marines by a 19-10 count. A burst of offensive power at the beginning of the third stanza brought the Marines to within five points of the Airdales but that was as close as they ever got. Hill, pivotman for the Marines fouled out early in the third quarter and that didn't help his team at all. The third period wound up with VU-10 out in front by 27-17. Fast Break is Effective VU-10 continued to shake loose their fast breaking offensive for basket after basket to win going away. The final count again, 44-30. Waters, VU-10 pivotman led the scorers for the night registering 17 points with Koehler hitting for 10 to take second high on the VU-10 team. Dukes led the way for the Marines sinking 13 points while Van Winkle was clipping off 9 more for the Marines. In the preliminary game Wednesday night the Naval Station chalked up their second victory of the year by downing NOB School by a 46-25 margin. Buddy Good led the victors with 14 counters while Tibodeau and Tinkey were next with 8 and 6 points respectfully. Ed Ondrasik and Eddie Groome accounted for most of High School's points. Groome hit for 12 points and Ondrasik swished the netting for 11 more.

The Training Group cagers had been on the short end of a 17-9 score at halftime. Bradfield led the Naval Station in their futile attempt at victory by bucketing 15 points with Jim Bettwy next in line with seven points. For the victors, Croft dumped in ten points while Pauquet and Haefner each added nine points to the Training Group total. The Hospital clipped NSD in the second game of the night by a 59-34 count. Luster of NSD was the high scorer of the night with 17 points. Jack Wilson and Gene Reardon of the Hospital each posted 16 points as their night's work while Martell of the NSD quintet and Major of the Hospital each hit for ten points for their respective teams. The Hospital held a commanding 20-1 lead at the end of the first quarter and led by 38-9 at halftime. NSD was to have met NAS and Hospital was slated to battle the Training Group Thursday night, after The Indian had gone to press. Standings (As of Thursday Morning Feb. 2.) Team W. L. Pct.
