Vol. V, No. 19 U. S. Naval Operating Base, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Saturday, 1 July 1950


JUSTICE CODE BECOMES EFFECTIVE MAY 31, 1951

Legislation establishing a uniform code of military justice for the armed forces (HR-4080) was signed by President Truman on May 6th. It will become effective May 31, 1951, acording to an Armed
Forces report.
The President praised the measure as "an outstanding example ,of unification of the armed forces"
and said it's provisions are in line with the democratic idea of "equality before the law."
Defense Secretary, Louis Johnson, said the bill provides "a number of very desirable protections, without interfering with necessary
functions."
Manual To Be Prepared
When the uniform code becomes
effective it will supersede the Articles of War that govern the Army O and Air Force; the Navy's Articles
of Government, and the disciplinary laws of the Coast Guard. A manual implementing the laws will be prepared jointly by the Judge Advocates General of the services.
Generally speaking, the new justice code is similiar to the civil
appellate system. It includes numerous trial courts and a court of of last resort. Three civilian judges will comprise the Court of Military Review, which will render the final decision on cases from all
the services.
Other Features Listed
Other features of the new justice code are:
1. Enlisted men may demand
that enlisted personnel serve on
the courts trying their cases.
2. Guilty pleas are prohibited in
cases involving death penalties.
3. Commanding officers who attempt to influence judicial action improperly may be court-martialed.
4. Prosecutor and defense counsel, in all cases, must be lawyers.
5. Presidential approval is required before death sentence, or less severe punishment for general and flag officers, can be carried out.
Louisville, Ky., was named for
Louis XVI, the luckless monarch executed during the French revolution. .


LETTER OF
APPRECIATION FROM
MARCH OF DIMES

Dated June 12 was a letter received this past weekend by the Base Commander from Mr. Basil O'Connor, President of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. Mr. O'Connor thanked the Base for their contribution of $2,000.00 to the March of Dimes Fund. This is another of the many letters received from various charitable organizations which received a portion of the profits of the Spanish Main Carnival. The text of Mr. O'Connor's letter follows.
"The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis wishes to thank you and all the members of your command for the most generous contribution of the 1950 March of Dimes.
."The heartwarming response to our fund-raising appeal by the Armed Forces and the civilians working with them is most gratifying. It assures us that they appreciate the work we are doing and desire to participate in it."

MARINE MUSINGS

Last Friday, another big dance was held, and like the last, in the Mess Hall as the Privates' Club is still closed for repairs. Everyone t hat possibly could attended, including a large group of girls from Guantanamo. Music for this gala occasion was provided by the Navy Band. Sefior Hatuey, from Cuba, and the Messrs. Schlitz and Budweiser, from the States, were guests of honor with all members of the command playing host to them. The dance committee earned a "well done" from us all for the effort that was put forth by them which resulted in a swell evening of fun and enjoyment for all who attended. Even SGT Dales seemed to be enjoying himself.
With the arrival of the "Hodges" here in Gtmo last week some new faces have appeared on the Site: Captain Pesely, who comes to us from San Juan, Puerto Rico, is going to assume command of Guard Platoon relieving Captain Sullivan who will be departing for the States in the very near future. Also reporting in were PFCs Clyde, Demers, Fleming, Goldsberry, Lavan, Stroud, Welch, and Wells (from MB, Boston, Mass.); and PFC Stratton who hails from MCS, Quantico.
Congratulations are in order for the following men who were recently promoted to their present rank: CPLs Blair, Copley, Lipus, and Rizer.
Back from leave in the "Estados Unidos" are SSGT Payne and PFC Kershaw. We hope that you both enjoyed your leave and that very short visit Stateside.
Rumor has it that the Special Services Office is working part'time, over-time, and all the time, at present, in preparation for the BIG fourth of July celebration. A Word to. the wise should be sufficient!

TEEN AGE ROUND UP
By Barbara Thomas
First of all, let me say that the last writer of this column, Ramona Moses, will be greatly missed as will her sister, Demaris. It has been wonderful knowing them and I do hope they will enjoy their new home in Florida.
Charles Pitts has a job at the soda fountain and I know he will be glad to see all his school chums drop in for a sundae. He told me he had learned how to make superduper banana splits so you really should try one.
I had a very pleasant surprise a week ago Tuesday. One of my school friends from Pensacola came in on the Hodges on his way to Panama where his father has been ordered for duty. After we showed him all over the Base, he asked, "Where is the town?" I explained there was none then he realized nothing more was needed for an enjoyable life here and said he hoped he would have the opportunity to spend more time here later on.
Please call me at 601 and give me any news you have concerning Teen-Agers.

WHAT AM I?

I am a little thing. I cost nothing yet I am worth more than gold. The more you use me, the more you have. I unlock doors, open hearts, dispel prejudices. I create goodwill.

O'ER THE TEA CUPS


By Betty Radcliffe
RADM and Mrs. A.M. Bledsoe were honored last Saturday with a cocktail party given in their honor by the Officer's Club. Another cocktail party was held in their honor by officers of NAS.
Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Moses and their two daughters left this week to make their home in Florida. The Moses family had been on this Base for about five years and while here made many friends. Here's wishing you the best of luck Rita and Tom and when we leave here and move to Florida we will certainly come to visit you.
Last Sunday the Officer's Club had a picnic that turned out to be a huge success. Draft beer flowed freely as did the pink lemonade. Jim Cannon was about the most popular man at the picnic... what was it, Jim . . . your lovable personality, green shirt or the free beer.
Jack Serig has returned to the Base and his many friends are glad to see him. Jack was in Havana for quite a while and he told me he liked it there very much. Anyway, welcome back, Jack.
When the USNS Gen. Hodges departed this week there were many familiar faces aboard . . . the COL Johnstons, the Kimballs, Cookinghams, Moses', Rushings, Fellers and many more.
I was glad to note that trips to Santiago are again being made possible. The Wednesday trips for shopping have always been popular and I am sure they will continue to be as popular as before. I don't know too much about the week-end trips but intend to find out sometime in the near future. Sounds like fun, anyway.
I have found out that when Mrs. Blanko-blanko gives a party or tea, she doesn't like to call and tell me about it, but if one of her guests that attend the party wants to tell me about it-then it is OK. So ... please call, and' tell me ~bout that nice party you attended. My phone number is 5-128.

MAKE IT A DATE

"Cuckoos on the Hearth" is still
progressing. As a matter of fact, last Tuesday night a great step forward was taken when an extremely genial gentleman walked into the Theatre and took the part of the Sheriff. Probably you didn't know it, but this spot has been -vacant and just looking for someone to take it. Things were getting in such a state that director "Moon"
Mullins was theatening to learn the lines himself. But along came LCDR Snay to save the day, and now our cast is complete and there's
smooth sailing ahead.
Even the estimable cuckoo clock . of which you've heard so much
'has arrived! There is only one problem, and that is, how to overcome the native shyness of S. E.
Goebels so that he'll treat Jeanne Nash as a wife. Of course there'd be plenty of volunteers to show him how. But we feel sure the -Georgia gentleman will do the role
justice when the time comes.
Roy Martin, or the Reverend as
he is known as up at Marine Site Three, may be seen practicing jujitsu or looking at people real mean, and that isn't exactly be.coming to a Red Cross Field Director, but it's all in the spirit of the thing, and the play is the thing!
And perhaps you've seen Nancy
D'Amboise going around with a funny look in her eyes. Such things happen, you know, when you pretend to be the head of a sanitarium for the insane. That stuff's
* catching!
But seriously folks, these people
are normal. It's just that they're Jiollowing the director's suggestion of living the role as much as posaible. Just think of the condition he must be in coaching all these characters! You'll have to see for i:ourself. Adios for now! More
news next week.

TRICKY QUICKY

A fruit grower had some choice
peaches and apples which he wished to ship. Altogether he packed 100 pieces of fruit. He packed the peaches in boxes, 16 to a box. The apples were placed in baskets which held 17 apples each. How
many boxes of each were there?
Last Week's solution: 18 tourists
,each spent 18 cents, totaling $3.24.

A young lady inquired of a colored porter the time of the train to Philadelphia. She then went to 'a waiting white man and asked him.
The porter waited a few minutes
and went to the white man with a
S big smile on his face.
"Do you think she'll believe it
-now? She has it in black and white."
he added with a chLckle.

Tonight-"All The Kings Men"Broderic Crawford emerges as a star of first magnitude in the film version of the Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name written by Robert P. Warren. It is the detailed and powerfully enacted chronicle of the rise of a dictator in one of the Southern states, who is easily identified as Huey Long. As a threat to democracy, Willie Stark deserves special attention from Americans. Cast includes Mercedes McCambridge, J o a n n e Dru, and John Derek. Running Time, I hour, 49 minutes.
Sunday--"Bombo on Panther Island". No Review available. Feature picture is 1 hour and 15 minutes long and is preceeded by two technicolor shorts, the first a cartoon, "Hipety Hopper" and the second "Choo Choo Swing".
Monday - "The Conspirator"Another in the current vogue of anti-Communist pictures, starring Robert Taylor and Elizabeth Taylor. Robert is a British Officer whose early life convictions lead him into a career of spying for Russia. Elizabeth is his American wife who learns he plans to kill her. Moderately exciting. Cast includes Robert. Fleming. Running time, 1 hour and 27 minutes. One ahort, "Water Storage" a Walt Disney Color cartoon is also on the program.
Tuesday-"Post Office Investigator". The picture is just what it sounds like, the adventures of a Post Office Investigator. Not a top notch picture, but interesting. Two shorts; "Spills and Chills", a sports short and "The Newlyweds", a comedy precede the feature which has a running time of 60 minutes.
Wednesday-"Under Capricorn"
-Lady Henrietta Flusky (Ingrid Bergman) was a dipsomanic because years ago her husband (Joseph Cotten) whom she followed to New South Wales, had gone to jail for a murder she committed. And although they had resumed their life together on his release, she couldn't seem to rid herself of a guilty feeling. Only Charles Adare, a childhood friend from Ireland tries to help her and is suspected for his trouble. A tale of stormy passions this. Michael Wilding plays Adare. Running time
1 hour and 54 minutes.
Thursday-"Key To The City"-A hilarious love story. An excellent cast and a good story make this one of the best movies made today. Clark Gable stars as the mayor of Puget City.

Joe's wife found a slip of paper in his pocket. On it was written "Sylvia Brown, Jamaica 4-1021."When Joe's wife asked him what it meant, he readily explained. "Sylvia Brown is the name of a horse," said Joe. Jamaica, is the track where he is running. The number 4 is his post position and 1021 means the odds are 10 to 1." Joe's wife was satisfied with this explanation until the next day. When Joe came home she said, "How'd your horse come out today." "He lost", said Joe. Then his wife handed him a letter. "From your horse," she said. "Probably explaining why it lost. Why don't you read it to me?"

Everyone that possibly could attended, including a large group of girls from Guantanamo. Music for this gala occasion was provided by the Navy Band. Senior Hatuey, from Cuba, and the Messrs. Schlitz and Budweiser, from the States, were guests of honor with all members of the command playing host to them. The dance committee earned a "well done" from us all for the effort that was put forth by them which resulted in a swell evening of fun and enjoyment for all who attended. Even SGT Dales seemed to be enjoying himself. With the arrival of the "Hodges" here in Gtmo last week some new faces have appeared on the Site: Captain Pesely, who comes to us from San Juan, Puerto Rico, is going to assume command of Guard Platoon relieving Captain Sullivan who will be departing for the States in the very near future. Also reporting in were PFCs Clyde, Demers, Fleming, Goldsberry, Lavan, Stroud, Welch, and Wells (from MB, Boston, Mass.); and PFC Stratton who hails from MCS, Quantico. Congratulations are in order for the following men who were recently promoted to their present rank: CPLs Blair, Copley, Lipus, and Rizer. Back from leave in the "Estados Unidos" are SSGT Payne and PFC Kershaw. We hope that you both enjoyed your leave and that very short visit Stateside. Rumor has it that the Special Services Office is working parttime, over-time, and all the time, at present, in preparation for the BIG fourth of July celebration. A word to the wise should be sufficient! HOSPITAL NOTES Heirport News: Two little girls made their world debut this week: Gale Ann Eriksson born 27 June to CHMACH and Mrs. R. V. Eriksson; Mary Maycel Netherland born 26 June to S H 1 and Mrs. E. 0. Netherland.

Wilson, HM2 and T. R. Kennedy, HM2 are on the sick list and learning about the inner workings of the hospital from beds in Ward B. TEEN AGE ROUND UP By Barbara Thomas First of all, let me say that the last writer of this column, Ramona Moses, will be greatly missed as will her sister, Demaris. It has been wonderful knowing them and I do hope they will enjoy their new home in Florida. Charles Pitts has a job at the soda fountain and I know he will be glad to see all his school chums drop in for a sundae. He told me he had learned how to make superduper banana splits so you really should try one. I had a very pleasant surprise a week ago Tuesday. One of my school friends from Pensacola came in on the Hodges on his way to Panama where his father has been ordered for duty. After we showed him all over the Base, he asked, "Where is the town?" I explained there was none then he realized nothing more was needed for an enjoyable life here and said he hoped he would have the opportunity to spend more time here later on. Please call me at 601 and give me any news you have concerning Teen-Agers. WHAT AM I? I am a little thing. I cost nothing yet I am worth more than gold. The more you use me, the more you have. I unlock doors, open hearts, dispel prejudices. I create goodwill. I make friendships, inspire respect and admiration. Everybody loves me. I am always welcome. I bore nobody.I violate no law and no one condemns me. I am pleasing to everyone. I am indispensable -I AM COURTESY.

Bledsoe were honored last Saturday with a cocktail party given in their honor by the Officer's Club. Another cocktail party was held in their honor by officers of NAS. Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Moses and their two daughters left this week to make their home in Florida. The Moses family had been on this Base for about five years and while here made many friends. Here's wishing you the best of luck Rita and Tom and when we leave here and move to Florida we will certainly come to visit you. Last Sunday the Officer's Club had a picnic that turned out to be a huge success. Draft beer flowed freely as did the pink lemonade. Jim Cannon was about the most popular man at the picnic what was it, Jim ...your lovable personality, green shirt or the free beer. Jack Serig has returned to the Base and his many friends are glad to see him. Jack was in Havana for quite a while and he told me he liked it there very much. Anyway, welcome back, Jack. When the USNS Gen. Hodges departed this week there were many familiar faces aboard ...the COL Johnstons, the Kimballs, Cookinghams, Moses', Rushings, Fellers and many more. I was glad to note that trips to Santiago are again being made possible. The Wednesday trips for shopping have always been popular and I am sure they will continue to be as popular as before. I don't know too much about the week-end trips but intend to find out sometime in the near future. Sounds iike fun, anyway. I have found out that when Mrs. Blanko-blanko gives a party or tea, she doesn't like to call and tell me about it, but if one of her guests that attend the party wants to tell me about it-then it is OK. So. ..please call and tell me about that nice party you attended. My phone number is 5-128. U 6 S THE INDIAN Saturday, 1 July 1950 Page Two

'Saturday, 1 July 1950 THE INDIAN Page Three MAKE IT A DATE "Cuckoos on the Hearth" is still progressing. As a matter of fact, last Tuesday night a great step forward was taken when an extremely genial gentleman walked into the Theatre and took the part of the Sheriff. Probably you didn't know it, but this spot has been vacant and just looking for someone to take it. Things were getting in such a state that director "Moon" Mullins was theatening to learn the lines himself. But along came LCDR Snay to save the day, and now our cast is complete and there's smooth sailing ahead. Even the estimable cuckoo clock .of which you've heard so much has arrived! There is only one problem, and that is, how to overcome the native shyness of S. E. *Goebels so that he'll treat Jeanne Nash as a wife. Of course there'd be plenty of volunteers to show him how. But we feel sure the Georgia gentleman will do the role justice when the time comes. Roy Martin, or the Reverend as he is known as up at Marine Site Three, may be seen practicing jujitsu or looking at people real mean, and that isn't exactly becoming to a Red Cross Field Director, but it's all in the spirit of the thing, and the play is the thing! And perhaps you've seen Nancy D'Amboise going around with a funny look in her eyes. Such things happen, you know, when you pretend to be the head of a sanitarium for the insane. That stuff's catching! But seriously folks, these people are normal. It's just that they're following the director's suggestion of living the role as much as possible. Just think of the condition he must be in coaching all these characters! You'll have to see for i ourself. Adios for now! More news next week. TRICKY QUICKY A fruit grower had some choice peaches and apples which he wished to ship. Altogether he packed 100 pieces of fruit. He packed the peaches in boxes, 16 to a box. The apples were placed in baskets which held 17 apples each. How many boxes of each were there? Last Week's solution: 18 tourists each spent 18 cents, totaling $3.24. A young lady inquired of a colored porter the time of the train to Philadelphia. She then went to a waiting white man and asked him. The porter waited a few minutes and went to the white man with a big smile on his face. "Do you think she'll believe it -now? She has it in black and white." he added with a chuckle. ATTENTION !

Warren. It is the detailed and powerfully enacted chronicle of the rise of a dictator in one of the Southern states, who is easily identified as Huey Long. As a threat to democracy, Willie Stark deserves special attention from Americans. Cast includes Mercedes McCambridge, J o a n n e Dru, and John Derek. Running Time, 1 hour, 49 minutes. Sunday-"Bombo on Panther Island". No Review available. Feature picture is 1 hour and 15 minutes long and is preceeded by two technicolor shorts, the first a cartoon, "Hipety Hopper" and the second "Choo Choo Swing". Monday -"The Conspirator"Another in the current vogue of s nti-Communist pictures, starring Robert Taylor and Elizabeth Taylor. Robert is a British Officer whose early life convictions lead him into a career of spying for Russia. Elizabeth is his American wife who learns he plans to kill her. Moderately exciting. Cast includes Robert Fleming. Running time, 1 hour and 27 minutes. One short, "Water Storage" a Walt Disney Color cartoon is also on the program. Tuesday-"Post Office Investigator". The picture is just what it sounds like, the adventures of a Post Office Investigator. Not a top notch picture, but interesting. Two shorts; "Spills and Chills", a sports short and "The Newlyweds", a comedy precede the feature which has a running time of 60 minutes. Wednesday-"Under Capricorn" -Lady Henrietta Flusky (Ingrid Bergman) was a dipsomanic because years ago her husband (Joseph Cotten) whom she followed to New South Wales, had gone to jail for a murder she committed. And although they had resumed their life together on his release, she couldn't seem to rid herself of a guilty feeling. Only Charles Adare, a childhood friend from Ireland tries to help her and is suspected for his trouble. A tale of stormy passions this. Michael Wilding plays Adare. Running time 1 hour and 54 minutes. Thursday-"Key To The City"A hilarious love story. An excellent cast and a good story make this one of the best movies made today. Clark Gable stars as the mayor of Puget City. His love is Clara Standish, portrayed by Loretta Young. Also in the cast are Frank Morgan, Marilyn Maxwell, James Gleason (as Police Sergeant Hogan), Raymond Walburn and .(Continued on Page Four) Saturday, 1 July 1950 THE INDIAN Page Three

Joe's wife found a slip of paper in his pocket. On it was written "Sylvia Brown, Jamaica 4-1021." When Joe's wife asked him what it meant, he readily explained. "Sylvia Brown is the name of a horse," said Joe. Jamaica, is the track where he is running. The number 4 is his post position and 1021 means the odds are 10 to 1." Joe's wife was satisfied with this explanation until the next day. When Joe came home she said, "How'd your horse come out today." "He lost", said Joe. Then his wife handed him a letter.
