U, S, S, Northampton Naval Station Infantry Training Drills Underway


rrives iI bifflO

For Shakedown

It is not often in a Navy career that one can see the solitary numeral "1" displayed on the bow of a Navy ship, but last week the first of a new type of ship made its appearance in the Guantanamo Bay area in the form of the USS Northampton.
Wearing a single numeral "1", the Northampton is the first of a series of "task force command" ships to be built. Built on a cruiser hull, she displaces 17,000 tons fully loaded.
The Northampton is built to provide a fully equipped floating headquarters for the commander of a large operation.
The main battery of 8-inch guns, normally seen on a regular cruiser of this class, has been eliminated
-to form more open deck space-forradio antennas.
The two regular midships masts of the conventional cruiser have also been eliminated and instead the tallest, self-supporting steel mast in the Navy rears 124 feet into the air. It has a 30-foot removable section at the top which enables it to be dismantled for passing under bridges.
An extra deck at the 01 level was built into the Northampton giving her several more feet of freeboard than the conventional cruiser and allowing more below decks storage of spare parts for electronic gear.
All control spaces throughout the ship have been air-conditioned, and helicopter landing facilities have also been provided. The uniqueness of the command ship extends down below, also. A combustion control system has been installed which feeds fuel, water and air directly and automatically to the boilers.
The Northampton boasts the most complete CIC and flag system of any ship. Her top speed, 30 knots, means that she can keeep up with the fastest task forces.


Regulations Announced


For Defense Medal

Washington (AFPS) - Details of the award and wearing of the National Defense Service Medal have been announced by the Defense Department. Regulations concerning the medal will soon be issued by the military departments. The award was established by Executive Order for those having honorable service as members of the Armed Forces for any period (Continued on page 4)

Ridgway Favors Over 700 Expected Modest Pay Hike At Supers' Picnic


According to a recent United Press dispatch, General Matthew B. Ridgway, Army Chief of Staff, joined with Admiral Arthur W. Radford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in expressing concern over the loss of military privileges to the men in the service.
He also declared that he thought a modest pay increase was due the military services.
In his first press conference since assuming the top Army position, General Ridgway declared that armed services morale was at an ebb and requires corrective action. He protested particularly against the "unjust" attacks against the military and the whittling away of military privileges by Congressional action.
Admiral Radford last week voiced some of the same complaints. He and General Ridgway both agree that it is becoming increasingly difficult to convince young men a military career is worthwhile.


The Labor Day holiday will be marked by what is anticipated as the greatest supervisors' picnic in the five-year history of the annual affair.
Seven hundred persons are expected at Phillips Park for the picnic.
Coffee and doughnuts will be on hand for early arrivals, and a sumptuous picnic meal will be served about twelve o'clock.
Events of the day include the annual softball game between Cuban and U.S. citizen teams, other athletic events, and the presentation of safety and length-ofservice awards to many supervisors.
Rear Admiral C. L. C. Atkeson, USN, heads the list of military guests, which includes commanding officers, executive officers, and wives from all Base Commands.

A Safety Sign read: "SchoolDon't Kill a Child." Beneath this was a childish scrawl: "Wait For Teacher."


School days are with us again, and children are getting on and off the school busses at all hours of the day.
Motorists are reminded that there is a base regulation prohibiting the passing of a stopped school bus FROM EITHER DIRECTION.
Vehicles behind and in front of the bus must stop and remain stopped until the bus starts. The school bus has the right-ofway at all times.


Six Weeks Training

Will Indoctrinate

80% Station Crew

The Naval Station infantry training program got underway Monday with approximately 50 men from the various divisions assembling on baseball diamond number one in the Fleet Recreation area.
It is expected that 80% of the Naval Station personnel will be indoctrinated in infantry training during the next six weeks.
The training will include close order drill, classroom instruction and marches under full pack. The classroom instruction will conist of th e care and handling of weapons.
Also on the training agenda is a viifTtto the -gas dhm, e n a trip to the rifle range where target practice with the M-1 rifle will be conducted.


R. L. Yarbro, GMC, instructs the firstplatoon in the care and handling of the M-1 rifle.

Washington (AFPS)-Successful first test flights have been completed with the Navy's new jet fighter, the North American FJ-3 Fury. Tests showed that the FJ-3 has a greater speed and an increased rate of climb over previous FJs although it is slightly heavier and larger. It is powered by a Wright J-65 Sapphire turbo jet engine and has a 35-degree sweptback wing and tail.

How To Be Salty

in ten easy lessons

If the salt lose its savor
1. Act rough, tough and "nasty always, especially when there is a crowd around. You can never tell.. you may impress some poor boot.
2. Poise your hat on your right eyebrow, and swagger with that "Asiatic Fleet" floating chassis rhythm. This is veddy , veddy effective.
3. Arrange to be poured aboard
at least three nights a week. This makes you a "regular guy" with the crew.
4. By all means.. use language which betrays a talent for anatomy . . . not to mention a blasphemous use of God's name.
5. A wide, metal studded belt is a "must" if you are to look like a real salt. And be sure to wear keys ... loads of them suspended from your belt with a halyard snap.
6. The better dressed salts alw ,js wash their dungarees in clorax.
7. If obtainable (you can always purchase these in the "better" stores)... wear some sort of exotic, different shoes! In fact the more non-regulation clothing you can wear, the better the over-all effect.
8. Have no respect whatsoever for women.., not even your mother, sister,, or girl friend. This is the infallible sign of the genuine salt.
9. Be sure to use that "four* letter word." It's most impressive as a noun, adjective, verb, substansive or interjection. In fact, use it any time you cannot think of anything else.
10. And... do sleep in on Sunday morning. Going to Church is not for he-men like you. Father Francis J. Ballenger, USNR Reprinted from the "St. Albans Naval Hospital News."
A young mother had just unburdened herself by telling her young son the facts of life.
"Now", she said, "have you any questions?"
"Yes," he replied, how do they get the Saturday Evening Post out on Wednesday?"


GEN. MATTHEW B. RIDGWAY Chief of Staff, U. S. Army

Gen Matthew B. Ridgway had 36 years of staff and line work and many military-diplomatic assignments prior to his appointment as Chief of Staff, U.S. Army.
A West Pointer, class of '17, and the son of an Army colonel, he selected the Infantry for his basic branch. Between a series of top service schools and special diplomatic assignments abroad, especially in Latin American countries, he sandwiched in nearly all thejobs of the Infantry officer until in June 1942 he commanded the 82nd Inf. Div. which was soon redesignated the 82nd Airborne.
Gen. Ridgway, then a temporary major general, because a parachutist, _planned the first major airbornie assault in U.S. Ariiiy history and then led his division in the conquest of Western Sicily and in the Italian campaign. In June 1944 he parachuted with the first units in Normandy.
His division and the XVIII Airborne Corps which he later commanded played a major role in the invasion of Western France, crossing of the Rhine, the Elbe and an eventual meeting with the Russian forces on the Baltic.
A lieutenant general at the war's end, he commanded the Mediter.ranean Theater of Operations until Jan. 3, 1946 when he was assigned to the Military Staff Committee United Nations, first in London, then in New York.
After important assignments in Washington and the Caribbean he was called to Korea Dec. 26, 1950 to succeed Lt. Gen. Walton Walker, who was killed in a jeep accident, as commander of the Eight Army.
He became Commander in Chief of the United Nations Command and the Far East Command Apr. 11, 1951 and was appointed a four-star general a month later.
In May 1952, Gen Ridgway succeeded General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower as Supreme Allied Commander, Europe. June 30, 1953, he was named to succeed Gen. J. Lawton Collins as Army Chief of Staff.

We all know how important a high school diploma is in this day and age, so if you haven't got yours yet you can remedy the situation by contacting the I & E office and finding out all the details about taking the Navy's General Educational Development test. This test .can aid you in receiving a diploma from the high school you attended before coming in to serve Uncle Sam.


Little Theatre Books

"Angel Street" for

Next Production

"Angel Street" will be the next production of the Little Theatre, it was announced after the regular monthly meeting of the group Tuesday night. A tentative opening date was also set for the first week in November.
Vincent Price starred in the smash-hit Broadway drama which opened in 1939. The Hollywood version called "Gaslight", starring Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman, was an Academy Award winner.
The production staff of the new play was also announced as follows: Producer, Bob Koppit; Director, Pat Ornelas; Stage Manager, George Stiedly; House Manager, Rudy Lawton; Co-Publicity Directors, John Hull and Betty Radcliffe.
This will be the Little Theatre's first attempt at straight drama and casting will commence upon the arrival of the scripts in about two weeks.

Exchanges Vital To

Military Morale

Washington (AFPS) - A Congressional subcommittee investigating service exchanges has issued a report saying that "most of the charges made against the operation of the exchanges are loose and reckless."
The subcommittee, which is part of the Armed Service Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, admitted that there are "occasional lapses," but said that on the Whole the exchanges are doing an important job. They were cited as a vital moral factor which helps keep noncommissioned personnel in Service. The report also pointed out that if service personnel should be required to pay the civilian rate on all merchandise, it would be necessary to grant a pay adjustment.
However under the present setup the exchanges operate as selfsupporting enterprises, pay Federal taxes, and benefit enlisted men and women by the purchases of recreational facilities from the profits. Were it not for exchanges, the taxpayer would have to provide Service libraries and athletic equipment.
The committee noted that service men and women who are shifted from place to place, have no opportunity to determine integrity of nearby merchants. The government protects Service personnel against unscupulous characters by operating exchanges.
No basis was found for charges of unfair competition against retailers, the subcommittee reported. Recommendations for improvement of exchange operations, made in 1949 by the House Armed Services Committee, are being "carried out implicitly."
The committee did recommend regular study of sales slips for purchases in excess of $5 to prevent overbuying by individuals or families. It also condemned incentive pay for employees based on volume of sales.

It is all right for a sailor to sit in the dark and tell his girl a story providing he can hold his audience.

2200 NR Officers

Due for Discharge

Washington (AFPS) - Aproximately 2200 Naval Reserve officers now on active duty in grade of lieutenant or above will be released involuntarily from active duty during January 1954.
This group includes about 1200 Reserve officers in grade of lieutenant commander and above and about 1000 in the grade of lieutenant. The announcement did not include officers in grades below lieutenant.
Priority of retention lists have been established to determine which officers shall be kept on active duty. Basis of selection was the need for officers with broad experience and certain others with essential specialized experience.
Officers will be released in inverse order on the priority list. They will be notified by individual letters which will be in the mail by. Sept. 1 and should be received by Sept. 15 in most instances.
Officers remaining on the priority lists will be divided into two groups. Group A will be those whose release during the current fiscal year would be caused only by unanticipated and drastic reductions and Group B those whose release may be required in the event of further personnel reductions beyond that now planned. All officers listed in these groups will be notified by form letters which will be placed in the mails before Oct. 15.
The provisions of this announcement apply only to those who have completed their obligated service and who have less than 18 years active duty service for retirement purposes as of January 1, 1954.
Since active duty strengths in code categories for officers in Aeronautical Engineering, A v i a t i o n Electronics, Aerological Engineering, Engineering, Medical, Dental, Medical Service, Nurse, and Civil Engineering Corps fields do not exceed' planned strengths, they have not been listed and so will not be issued letters at this time.

After two weeks of play in the Marine Barracks' softball league we find a new leader of the loop in the Second Section, Guard Company.
Last Friday the Second Section beat Headquarters by the score of 10 to 9 to move into a tie for first place. The winners came from behind scoring two runs in the final frame.
Monday, behind the one hit pitching of Hughes and the timely hitting of Rosati, team captains, and Cabal, the Second Section beat Headquarters 12 to 0 to take sole possession of first place. Alling spoiled Hughes' bid for a no-hitter with a clean single to center in the seventh inning.
Other games during the week saw the Officers and Staff NCO and First Section splitting a pair of games.
The First Section took the first game by the score of 29 to 14 and the Officers and Staff NCO bounced back taking the second game 10to8.

M *n MOTORISTS: School Is Open and We Can't Spare A Single Child Q5e 9 Vol. V, No. 51 U. S. Naval Base, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Saturday, 5 September 1953 u. S. S. Northampton Naval Station Infantry Training Drills Underway Arrives in Gtmo -For Shakedown It is not often in a Navy career that one can see the solitary numeral "1" displayed on the bow of a Navy ship, but last week the first of a new type of ship made its appearance in the Guantanamo Bay area in the form of the USS Northampton. Wearing a single numeral "1", the Northampton is the first of a series of "task force command" ships to be built. Built on a cruiser hull, she displaces 17,000 tons fully loaded. The Northampton is built to provide a fully equipped floating headquarters for the commander of a large operation. The main battery of 8-inch guns, normally seen on a regular cruiser of this class, has been eliminated to form more open deck space for radio antennas. The two regular midships masts of the conventional cruiser have also been eliminated and instead the tallest, self-supporting steel mast in the Navy rears 124 feet into the air. It has a 30-foot removable section at the top which enables it to be dismantled for passing under bridges. An extra deck at the 01 level was built into the Northampton giving her several more feet of freeboard than the conventional cruiser and allowing more below decks storage of spare parts for electronic gear. All control spaces throughout the ship have been air-conditioned, and helicopter landing facilities have also been provided. The uniqueness of the command ship extends down below, also. A combustion control system has been installed which feeds fuel, water and air directly and automatically to the boilers. The Northampton boasts the most complete CIC and flag system of any ship. Her top speed, 30 knots, means that she can keeep up with the fastest task forces. Relations Announced For Defense Medal Washington (AFPS) -Details of the award and wearing of the National Defense Service Medal have been announced by the Defense Department. Regulations concerning the medal will soon be issued by the military departments. The award was established by Executive Order for those having honorable service as members of the Armed Forces for any period (Continued on page 4) The first platoon of Naval Station personnel to undergo the yearly military training steps out briskly on their first march under arms. Ridgway Favors Over 700 Expected Modest Pay Hike At Supers' Picnic According to a recent United Press dispatch, General Matthew B. Ridgway, Army Chief of Staff, joined with Admiral Arthur W. Radford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in expressing concern over the loss of military privileges to the men in the service. He also declared that he thought a modest pay increase was due the military services. In his first press conference since assuming the top Army position, General Ridgway declared that armed services morale was at an ebb and requires corrective action. He protested particularly against the "unjust" attacks against the military and the whittling away of military privileges by Congressional action. Admiral Radford last week voiced some of the same complaints. He and General Ridgway both agree that it is becoming increasingly difficult to convince young men a military career is worthwhile. The Labor Day holiday will be marked by what is anticipated as the greatest supervisors' picnic in the five-year history of the annual affair. Seven hundred persons are expected at Phillips Park for the picnic. Coffee and doughnuts will be on hand for early arrivals, and a sumptuous picnic meal will be served about twelve o'clock. Events of the day include the annual softball game between Cuban and U.S. citizen teams, other athletic events, and the presentation of safety and length-ofservice awards to many supervisors. Rear Admiral C. L. C. Atkeson, USN, heads the list of military guests, which includes commanding officers, executive officers, and wives from all Base Commands. A Safety Sign read: "SchoolDon't Kill a Child." Beneath this was a childish scrawl: "Wait For Teacher." School days are with us again, and children are getting on and off the school busses at all hours of the day. Motorists are reminded that there is a base regulation prohibiting the passing of a stopped school bus FROM EITHER DIRECTION. Vehicles behind and in front of the bus must stop and remain stopped until the bus starts. The school bus has the right-ofway at all times. Six Weeks Training Will Indoctrinate 80% Station Crew The Naval Station infantry training program got underway Monday with approximately 50 men from the various divisions assembling on baseball diamond number one in the Fleet Recreation area. It is expected that 80% of the Naval Station personnel will be indoctrinated in infantry training during the next six weeks. The training will include close order drill, classroom instruction and marches under full pack. The classroom instruction will conist of th e care and handling of weapons. Also on the training agenda is a visit to the gas chamber and a trip to the rifle range where target practice with the M-1 rifle will be conducted. R. L. Yarbro, GMC, instructs the firstplatoon in the care and handling of the M-1 rifle. ZOOM Washington (AFPS)-Successful first test flights have been completed with the Navy's new jet fighter, the North American FJ-3 Fury. Tests showed that the FJ-3 has a greater speed and an increased rate of climb over previous FJs although it is slightly heavier and larger. It is powered by a Wright J-65 Sapphire turbo jet engine and has a 35-degree sweptback wing and tail.

How To Be Salty in ten easy lessons If the salt lose its savor 1. Act rough, tough and nasty always, especially when there is a crowd around. You can never tell. you may impress some poor boot. 2. Poise your hat on your right eyebrow, and swagger with that "Asiatic Fleet" floating chassis rhythm. This is veddy, veddy effective. 3. Arrange to be poured aboard at least three nights a week. This makes you a "regular guy" with the crew. 4. By all means ..use language which betrays a talent for anatomy .not to mention a blasphemous use of God's name. 5. A wide, metal studded belt is a "must" if you are to look like a real salt. And be sure to wear keys .loads of them suspended from your belt with a halyard snap. 6. The better dressed salts alwals wash their dungarees in clorax. 7. If obtainable (you can always purchase these in the "better" stores). ..wear some sort of exotic, different shoes! In fact the more non-regulation clothing you can wear, the better the over-all effect. 8. Have no respect whatsoever for women ..not even your mother, sister,. or girl friend. This is the infallible sign of the genuine salt. 9. Be sure to use that "four letter word." It's most impressive as a noun, adjective, verb, substansive or interjection. In fact, use it any time you cannot think of anything else. 10. And ...do sleep in on Sunday morning. Going to Church is not for he-men like you. Father Francis J. Ballenger, USNR Reprinted from the "St. Albans Naval Hospital News." A young mother had just unburdened herself by telling her young son the facts of life. "Now", she said, "have you any questions?" "Yes," he replied, how do they get the Saturday Evening Post out on Wednesday?" THE INDIAN GEN. MATTHEW B. RIDGWAY Chief of Staff, U. S. Army Gen Matthew B. Ridgway had 36 years of staff and line work and many military-diplomatic assignments prior to his appointment as Chief of Staff, U.S. Army. A West Pointer, class of '17, and the son of an Army colonel, he selected the Infantry for his basic branch. Between a series of top service schools and special diplomatic assignments abroad, especially in Latin American countries, he sandwiched in nearly all the jobs of the Infantry officer until in June 1942 he commanded the 82nd Inf. Div. which was soon redesignated the 82nd Airborne. Gen. Ridgway, then a temporary major general, because a parachutist, planned the first major airborne assault in U.S. Arniiy history and then led his division in the conquest of Western Sicily and in the Italian campaign. In June 1944 he parachuted with the first units in Normandy. His division and the XVIII Airborne Corps which he later commanded played a major role in the invasion of Western France, crossing of the Rhine, the Elbe and an eventual meeting with the Russian forces on the Baltic. A lieutenant general at the war's end, he commanded the Mediterranean Theater of Operations until Jan. 3, 1946 when he was assigned to the Military Staff Committee United Nations, first in London, then in New York. After important assignments in Washington and the Caribbean he was called to Korea Dec. 26, 1950 to succeed Lt. Gen. Walton Walker, who was killed in a jeep accident, as commander of the Eight Army. He became Commander in Chief of the United Nations Command and the Far East Command Apr. 11, 1951 and was appointed a four-star general a month later. In May 1952, Gen Ridgway succeeded General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower as Supreme Allied Commander, Europe. June 30, 1953, he was named to succeed Gen. J. Lawton Collins as Army Chief of Staff. We all know how important a high school diploma is in this day and age, so if you haven't got yours yet you can remedy the situation by contacting the I & E office and finding out all the details about taking the Navy's General Educational Development test. This test .can aid you in receiving a diploma from the high school you attended before coming in to serve Uncle Sam. Saturday, 5 September 1953 Little Theatre Books "Angel Street" for Next Production "Angel Street" will be the next production of the Little Theatre, it was announced after the regular monthly meeting of the group Tuesday night. A tentative opening date was also set for the first week in November. Vincent Price starred in the smash-hit Broadway drama which opened in 1939. The Hollywood version called "Gaslight", starring Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman, was an Academy Award winner. The production staff of the new play was also announced as follows: Producer, Bob Koppit; Director, Pat Ornelas; Stage Manager, George Stiedly; House Manager, Rudy Lawton; Co-Publicity Directors, John Hull and Betty Radcliffe. This will be the Little Theatre's first attempt at straight drama and casting will commence upon the arrival of the scripts in about two weeks. Exchanges Vital To Military Morale Washington (AFPS) -A Congressional subcommittee investigating service exchanges has issued a report saying that "most of the charges made against the operation of the exchanges are loose and reckless." The subcommittee, which is part of the Armed Service Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives, admitted that there are "occasional lapses," but said that on the whole the exchanges are doing an important job. They were cited as a vital moral factor which helps keep noncommissioned personnel in Service. The report also pointed out that if service personnel should be required to pay the civilian rate on all merchandise, it would be necessary to grant a pay adjustment. However under the present setup the exchanges operate as selfsupporting enterprises, pay Federal taxes, and benefit enlisted men and women by the purchases of recreational facilities from the profits. Were it not for exchanges, the taxpayer would have to provide Service libraries and athletic equipment. The committee noted that service men and women who are shifted from place to place, have no opportunity to determine integrity of nearby merchants. The government protects Service personnel against unscupulous characters by operating exchanges. No basis was found for charges of unfair competition against retailers, the subcommittee reported. Recommendations for improvement of exchange operations, made in 1949 by the House Armed Services Committee, are being "carried out implicitly." The committee did recommend regular study of sales slips for purchases in excess of $5 to prevent overbuying by individuals or families. It also condemned incentive pay for employees based on volume of sales. It is all right for a sailor to sit in the dark and tell his girl a story providing he can hold his audience.

This group includes about 1200 Reserve officers in grade of lieutenant commander and above and about 1000 in the grade of lieutenant. The announcement did not include officers in grades below lieutenant. Priority of retention lists have been established to determine which officers shall be kept on active duty. Basis of selection was the need for officers with broad experience and certain others with essential specialized experience. Officers will be released in inverse order on the priority list. They will be notified by individual letters which will be in the mail by Sept. 1 and should be received by Sept. 15 in most instances. Officers remaining on the priority lists will be divided into two groups. Group A will be those whose release during the current fiscal year would be caused only by unanticipated and drastic reductions and Group B those whose release may be required in the event of further personnel reductions beyond that now planned. All officers listed in these groups will be notified by form letters which will be placed in the mails before Oct. 15. The provisions of this announcement apply only to those who have completed their obligated service and who have less than 18 years active duty service for retirement purposes as of January 1, 1954. Since active duty strengths in code categories for officers in Aeronautical Engineering, A v i a t i o n Electronics, Aerological Engineering, Engineering, Medical, Dental, Medical Service, Nurse, and Civil Engineering Corps fields do not exceed planned strengths, they have not been listed and so will not be issued letters at this time.

This year Aug. 11 bore down on the Polo Grounders, 16%/2 games behind their eternal rivals whom they started entertaining for three days. They shouldn't have, for it amounted to the coup de grace for Durocher's Dandies who in that amount of time sank to 19% games behind the league leaders. Dressen, the coroner, calmly announced, ''the Giants is dead." As the dirge of epithets flow over the bier, none respectful, a thin voice, like the ghost of the past, shrieks "we'll whip them 'Bums' yet." There is no derision in Brooklyn, no invective against this kind of talk. The burghers sitting on the stoops of left field, reflect knowingly "It'll never happen." LAGNAIPPE: Football is getting increasingly more complicated. Harvard players this fall are going to know there positions on the bench as well as the field. The Ivy League school is using the proposal of coach Ray Elliott of Illinois as a means of keeping the limited substitution straight. Under the plan each player removed from the field must sit in the "ineligible" area marked off by a painted line, until he can return to the game at the start of the next period ...The Navy's goat, Annapolis mascot Billy XII, is the veteran of the team in point of service. He was given to the Midshipmen in 1937 by the Texas Centennial Exposition ...Notre Dame's coach Frank Leahy is hoping that Johnny Lattner, star senior right halfback, will have an enjoyable 21st birthday Oct. 24. That is the Saturday the Irish will be playing Georgia Tech in South Bend ..Bill Veeck is up to his old tricks, anything to entertain his customers. He has paired the Harlem Globetrotters with the U.S. Stars in a baseball-basketball doubleheader in Busch Stadium Aug. 31 as the other half of a St. LouisWashington encounter ...Karl Olson is back with the Red Sox after a two-year stretch on Army baseball teams in Japan and Ft.

Lady Keglers Rolling For New League Form An attempt to organize the women bowlers of the Naval Base is underway and plans for a Ladies' Bowling League are taking shape. A nucleus has been formed from members of last year's league and officers have been elected. President of this year's league is Betty Sandage; Jean Smith is treasurer and Jacky Hardy is secretary. Women of the base have been requested to bowl nine games and to turn their game average in to one of the following: Mrs. Sandage (9-338), Mrs. D. B. Powers (9-386) or Mrs. R. J. Price (9-438). Entrants will be organized into teams in accordance with their individual averages for the nine games played. It is hoped that eight or ten teams can be formed. League competition will probably get underway 11 September and continue until sometime in late March or early April. Ladies' bowling is not new to Guantanamo Bay. Last year's playoffs resulted in the presentation of cups and other trophies. This year's competition will be similar to last year's. QUESTIONS 1.

BENCH~k Softball Round-up After two weeks of play in the Marine Barracks' softball league we find a new leader of the loop in the Second Section, Guard Company. Last Friday the Second Section beat Headquarters by the score of 10 to 9 to move into a tie for first place. The winners came from behind scoring two runs in the final frame. Monday, behind the one hit pitching of Hughes and the timely hitting of Rosati, team captains, and Cabal, the Second Section beat Headquarters 12 to 0 to take sole possession of first place. Alling spoiled Hughes' bid for a no-hitter with a clean single to center in the seventh inning. Other games during the week saw the Officers and Staff NCO and First Section splitting a pair of games. The First Section took the first game by the score of 29 to 14 and the Officers and Staff NCO bounced back taking the second game 10to8. The standings as of Thursday, 4 September: W L Second Section ----------3 1 Headquarters -------2 2 Officers & Staff NCO 2 2 First Section -------------1 3 NAVAL AIR STATION The second half commenced August 15 with the Boatshed defeating the Special Service team in a well played contest 6 -4.

The game produced excellent pitching by LCDR Woodard and Chief Richter. No man ever became a failure or a success without his own consent. ComTen Golf Tourney To Be Played Here Nine local golfers came out on top of the qualifying rounds last week and were selected to represent the Naval Base in the forthcoming 10th Naval District Golf Championship tournament which will be played on the local course. Heading the team will be W. R. North, 1953 club champion and Anthony Grego, runner-up for the championship this year and last year's top man. Backing up these two will be C. E. Smith, Jr., Anthony Totilo, Harry Skinner, Ray Knilans, W. M. Narwid, F. N. Vanderhoef and R. C. Spears. The first six men will take the field against representative teams from the military commands in Trinidad, Haiti and Puerto Rico while the remaining three stand by as alternates.
