Former Assistant Defense Seeretary Charles S. Thomas has been named by President Eisenhower as the new Secretary of the Navy. Mr. Thomas' nomination was sent to the Senate on March 10.
Mr. Thomas was appointed to fill the vacancy created when the President named Secretary of the Navy Robert B. Anderson to the post of Deputy Director of Defense. He will take his new job on May 1.


The new head of the Navy is not new to the ways of the sea service in the Pentagon. He held a position as an assistant to the late James V. Forrestal when the latter was Secretary of the Navy. His major concern in that post was the procurement of aircraft.
Mr. Thomas first served with the Navy during World War I as a naval aviator. At the end of his service in 1919 he joined the investment house of George H. Burr Co., Los Angeles, and in 1925 became a vice president of the firm In 1932 he left to become vice president of Foreman and Clark, a chain of men's retail clothing stores. Five years later he became president of the organization.
After the outbreak of WW II he was appointed a special assistant to the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Air and later served as assistant to Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal. He also set up the Navy's Inventory and Purchasing Control Program and its first Contract Negotiation Section.
In addition to being a past naval aviator, Mr. Thomas was a past officer of the Navy League in the Eleventh Region, and has served as an airport commissioner in Los Angeles and also as vice-president of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce.

A revived Hook commission is drafting a new pay bill for the armed services according to the "Navy Times."
The pay increase for servicemen was brought up before the Armed Services Committee in Washington last Fall but was shelved to make way for more important legislation. Revival of. the military pay increase was predicted by committee members because of continuing pressure for a civilian employees' salary hike.
The Armed Services committee opened the way for the new bill by saying that they would consider any proposal presented to them before March 25th. This gave the Defense Department the go-ahead necessary to begin a study of the 1948 report on military pay.
Charles R. Hook has been consulting with available members of the former commission, and if the new report recommends a pay increase, Secretary n S, Tpee"E
back it at the White House and on Capitol Hill.

For Next PO Exams

If you are going to participate in the next Fleet-wide competitive exams for petty officer ratings, here is what you must do:
You must be recommended by 30 April. In order to be recommended, you must have completed a Navy Training Course for the rate in which you will be examined, and the General Training Course for Petty Officers.
The Navy Training Course is ordered through the Information and Education Office. The General Training Course may be obtained either through your division officer or I&E, but your division officer usually gives it.
The dates for the exams are: 3rd class, 10 August; 2nd class, 17 August; 1st class, 24 August.
In some rates, extra courses are needed. For example, boatswain's mates are required to have a course in cargo handling, which is obtained through their divisions. Also, commissarymen are required to have completed the Baker's Handbook.
Remember, all this must be done by 30 April.


4 - Number Dial Starts


A revision of the telephone rates for the base has been announced by the Telephone Officer.
Effective with the close of business hours on March 31 this is the second rate change within a month and provides good news for residents of quarters on the base.
The new charge for a main line telephone in all quarters on the Naval Base will be $4.00 per month. The non-recurring charges remain the same.
The complete breakdown of the new rates is as follows: Main line (commercial contractors,
concessionaries, business firms) _--_______ -_ -___-- --- $9.00 Main line (public schools, American
Red Cross, quasi-government agencies, exchanges, officer and enlisted messes, Armed Forces and Navy sponsord.act-i$?,iP, Main line (residential) --_- $4.00 Main line extension (residential)
__-_-_-_- $1.75
Main line extension (business)
--- - - - - - - - - - $3.00


Effective April 1 a new dialing system on the telephone network will go into effect. Basically, the new system requires that four numbers be dialed regardless of what exchange area the caller may be in.
A new telephone book will be issued on April 1 and several numbers have been changed. Officials of the telephone company urge all persons to look up the number they are calling to insure that they have the right combination. Then, regardless of what exchange area the caller may be in, all four numbers must be dialed.
The new system was inaugurated to keep pace with the expansion of the base and improve the telephone service. Many new groups of numbers have been added to decrease the load on the '-'cr gavyps 'ave been decreased by the addition of new 1, 4 and 5 hundred listings.
Telephone c o m p a n y officials stressed the importance of looking in the new directory before dialing the number.


April Named 'Savings Bond Month'

It has been announced by the Commander Naval Base that the period 1 April to 30 April 1954 will be "Savings Bond Month." During this period, a canvass of all military personnel will be made to explain the advantages of the Savings Bond Allotment Plan with a view toward increasing participation.


Honor Man


.......--..

Honor Man at last week's Naval Station personnel inspection was Joseph M. Malmay Jr., BM1, of the 1st Division. Malmay, who hails from Monroe, La., has been in the Navy for 9 years. For the past 13 months, he has been serving on the Naval Station Master at Arms force. For four years prior to his being assigned here, he was stationed on board the USS William M. Wood, DD 715.


At the same time, a drive will be held to increase the participation of American Civilian Employees of all base commands. This will be a separate drive.
Each base command will submit reports prior to 10 May to the Base Savings Bond Officer containing the number of military personnel on board as of 1 April participating in the program, the number of military personnel on board as of 30 April participating in the program, and the total number on board at each command at the respective opening and closing dates. A similar report will be submitted to the Savings Bond Officer for civilian employees.
Recently, two surveys were taken. One was made of the comparative participation of military personnel of base activities in the Savings Bond Allotment program as of 1 March 1954; and one was made of the participation of civilian employees participating in the program. For military personnel, Naval Station registered the highest percentage of personnel participating with 46.8 percent with VU10 running a close second with 44.8 percent. For the civilian employees, the Naval Base Headquarters registered highest with an even 50 percent and Naval Supply Depot turning in a percentage of 33.3.

The Santiago golf team will pay a visit to Gtmo on the 3rd and 4th of April for the annual Challenge Match of 36 holes. 18 holes will be played on Saturday afternoon and 18 on Sunday morning.
The green bench you see on the 2nd tee was donated by Captain Yeager, CO USS DesMoines who frequently plays here on Sunday mornings. Other new benches have been placed on various tees for the players' benefit.
The Scotch foursome Sunday is scheduled to start at 1300. Pairings and starting times will be published in the golf shop at 1700 today. Please call to check your starting time and not delay the play.
All members are kindly requested to take more precaution on the 8th and 9th fairways and tees, particularly on week-ends when balls are flying everywhere and anywhere.
The regular putting green is always closed on week-ends but the chipping green in the rear of the driving range is open. This green has the Tifton 57 Bermuda grass, and I'm sure the players will find it to be similar to the regular playing greens as far as putting is concerned.
There are still many good buys in both store model and pro line model woods and irons as well as an assortment of Otey Christman putters. There are also some good


You know, girls, with all the bad weather we've had this month, I'm beginning to wonder if the weatherman is doing it to retaliate for the ladies' switch to "long" shorts on the golf course. From all yours truly has heard from the male element on this base, the men never did object to the pretty little shorts most of the women still wear on the course every day but Ladies' Golf morning.
As you already know, the rain cancelled out our golf this Wednesday, but it was agreed to try on Thursday, the weather permitting. As the Indian goes to press prior to the postponed match, you will have to wait until next week for the results. Sorry!
In case some of you gals haven't received a copy of the recently printed "Ladies Rules", I'd advise you all to secilre a copy. Rule #6, in regards to trying to "one-fault" or just "taking two strokes" when an entire green is under repair, I


buys in used golf clubs which all sales have to be negotiated between seller and buyer. The list is on the bulletin board in the pro shop.
The present plans call for retopsoiling some more greens as well as most of the tees prior to April 1st. All players are requested to use the markers even though they will be in front of the regular tee. And as a hint for the weekin relation to teeing a ball, never use a full tee in teeing a ball up for an iron shot. The ball is naturally teed much lower for irons than woods since a slight divot is necessary in order to hit down and through, thereby putting a ,reverse spin on the ball to stop it on the green. The point in not using the full tee is that the club head speed is decreased somewhat in breaking the tee, and there is always a chance of deflecting the left angle of the face which is necessary for the ball to travel in its intended flight. The long tee is, of course, necessary for woods, particularly the driver. Always check and see if the top of the face of the club is soled so that it meets the center of the ball. This also applies to the 2, 3 and 4 woods when using an artificial tee. Try and slant the tee just a little forward toward the line of intended flight so that the concave cup that holds the ball will let the ball move off straight instead of up.
Along with other Navy sports for this year-the dates for the golf tournament at Jacksonville for players eligible from this area will be August 28, 29, 30 and 31. A tournament of 72 holes will very likely be held here prior to those dates with the low four and one or two alternates qualifying to attend. The NAS Jax layout is fast becoming one of the finest 18-hole courses in that part of Florida. LT Grego held the course record there for several years with a 4 - under - par - 68. However, some yardage has been changed and the playing conditions have improved such that Irvin Scott, one of the great players in the Navy today. scored a 67 there last year. To those who may go-remember to practice your long irons and by all means practice playing from a trap.


feel is of exceptional interest for all the ladies.
Don't forget the "Scotch Foursome" tomorrow, 28 March at 1:00 P. M., everyone. And girls, stop worrying about "how badly you might shoot. As I've been assured, a "high Handicap" is a big advantage from a man's point of view. So good luck to you all, and let's show the men we can really give them some golf worth noticing.

Woman may be physically weaker than man, but she can put a cap on a frt it jar so tight he can't take it off.

"We ca' submerge-he a cluck in
the hatch"


FTG Bulletin

Some of us spend so much energy running that we forget where we are going. It pays to stop a moment once in a while and take stock of where you stand. Commander, Fleet Training Group, stopped recently to do just that. The Training Group has compiled figures of just what has been accomplished by FTG at Guantanamo Bay in the last year from March 1953 to March 1954.
The figures are impressive, to put it mildly. More than one ship a day, a total of 404 for the year, has passed into Guantanamo Bay for a period of Training under Cominander, Fleet Training Group. This period includes firing shore bombardment and AA batteries
surface and torpedo firing, antisubmarine warfare training, full power speed runs, Combat Intelligence Center (CIC) air and surface problems, Low Visibility Electronic Navigation and Piloting, Man Overboard and Fueling at Sea exercises, and even the Mediterranean Moor (the backwards first approach to a wharf required in Mediterranean waters due to current and tide conditions). Other exercises of a confidential nature are also executed.
Several Types Training
Like students at school take different courses of study, ships at Guantanamo are given different courses of training. For example, 152 ships went through the FTG Gunfire Support training exercises at Culebra, the Fleet Training Group firing exercise island off the coast of Puerto Rico. Here ships practice fire control problems of the type required to support troops and amphibious operations, including indirect or reverse slope firing used in dropping shells into ridges or on the back side of a hill. The total includes 129 destroyers, 4 battleships, 10 cruisers and 9 LSMR's.
A second type of training is the FTG Refresher Training, a yearly review of battle techniques for the ship enrolled in this course. A total of 149 ships passed through the six-week period which includes an arrival inspection, mid-term and final battle problems, exercises in seamanship, surface and AA firing, damage control and engineering drills, full power trials, and radar tracking of surface and air targets. Two weeks of anti-submarine warfare for destroyer types are also included, with submarines and lighter-than-air ships, also in training at Guantanamo, participating in the exercises.
Shakedown training for newly commissioned or recommissioned ships was given to 14 ships in the past year, including four carriers, one cruiser, six destroyers and three LST's. Breaking in a new ship involves a great many problems not normally encountered in ship's training. A new crew on a new ship, untested equipment, battery alignment and compass deviation: these are a few of the problems encountered as a ship's officers and crew get the "feel" of their ship and each other during shakedown training at Guantanamo. At the conclusion of shakedown training, an inexperienced crew will be transformed into a fighting team ready to operate at peak battle efficiency.
Independent Exercise ships and special training exercises round out the year's total of ship training periods for the Fleet Training Group. Forty-six ships have conducted special exercises of many types while operating from Guantanamo, and 43 ships have been here on independent exercise as-


Hospital Notes

Heirport News
During the past week, the following births were recorded: Timothy Lamar Yarbough, son of EN2 and Mrs. William E. Yarbough; Grace Rebecca Ricker, daughter of LT and Mrs. Robert E. Ricker; Joanna Lynn Reaves, daughter of LTJG and Mrs. Joseph C. Reaves; and Kent Eugene Payne, son of LT and Mrs. S. T. Payne.
Departures
Last week saw two of our key basketball players, D. F. Bomkamp, HM2, and T. C. Boesel, HM2, leave for the Naval Amphibious Base, Little Creek, Virginia for duty. Among their other accomplishments, they were quite active in bowling, golf, and baseball. Bomkamp stood tenth in the final Base Basketball League among the high scorers, with an average of 9.9 per game. Their loss will be acutely felt in forthcoming athletic events.
Officers Bowling League
Last week, the Hospital Team No. 1 went into 2nd place, only one game behind the league leaders, by grabbing all four from FTGOPAIR. LT Mason rolled a beautiful 588 set with two 200 games, a 206 and 209, while CWOHC Novak came up with a 204 single and a 581 set.
Hospital Team No. 3 jumped from 10th to 8th place when they took three points from a hardfighting NSD No. 1 team. High man for the winners was LT Strauss who entered the 500 Club Circle with a 501.
All was not peaches and cream, however. Hospital Team No. 2 slipped from 11th to 12th place, giving NSD No. 2 three points and currently 3rd place.
DANGER
None of us would deliberately contribute to -the suffering of another. Yet, the extremely poor response to the recent appeal for blood donors amounts to just that.
During the past week, only two individuals have placed their names on the Hospital Blood Donor List.
Stated briefly, this is what takes place when you come to the hospital to have your name put on the list: A simple, painless prick on the end of the finger, solely to determine-or confirm-your blood type and Rh Factor, is all that is done. You do not donate the blood until called upon. Is that too much to ask ?
Quoting a well-worn slogan, "The life you save may be your own."

Kathy, aged five, was permitted to attend her first party. Upon her return home, her mother asked her all about it. "Were you the youngest one there?" she queried.
"No," replied Kathy, ever so smugly. "There was a gentleman there who came in a baby carriage."

signments.
The total figure by types of ships which have trained under Commaijder, Fleet Training Group, in the last 12 months, including those ships which have been here more than once, is 285 destroyer types, 40 auxiliaries, 29 cruisers, 15 aircraft carriers, 14 battleships, 12 amphibious force ships, six submarines and three others.
"The great volume of training here is a source of pride to personnel of the Fleet Training Group and of the Naval Base," comments Captain F. L. Tedder, Commander, Fleet Training Group. The FTG motto, "Training Service to the Fleet," has been well fulfilled by the accomplishments of the past year.

Vol. VI, No. 38 LJ. S. Naval Base, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Saturday, 27 March 1954 Charles S. Thomas Named New SeCNaV P Former Assistant Defense Secretary Charles S. Thomas has been named by President Eisenhower as the new Secretary of the Navy. Mr. Thomas' nomination was sent to the Senate on March 10. Mr. Thomas was appointed to fill the vacancy created when the President named Secretary of the Navy Robert B. Anderson to the post of Deputy Director of Defense. He will take his new job on May 1. The new head of the Navy is not new to the ways -of the sea service in the Pentagon. He held a position as an assistant to the late James V. Forrestal when the latter was Secretary of the Navy. His major concern in that post was the procurement of aircraft. Mr. Thomas first served with the Navy during World War I as a naval aviator. At the end of his service in 1919 he joined the investment house of George H. Burr Co., Los Angeles, and in 1925 became a vice president of the firm In 1932 he left to become vice president of Foreman and Clark, a chain of men's retail clothing stores. Five years later he became president of the organization. After the outbreak of WW II he was appointed a special assistant to the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Air and later served as assistant to Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal. He also set up the Navy's Inventory and Purchasing Control Program and its first Contract Negotiation Section. In addition to being a past naval aviator, Mr. Thomas was a past officer of the Navy League in the Eleventh Region, and has served as an airport commissioner in Los Angeles and also as vice-president of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce.

Revised Pay Bill Teleph Rates usedinComtte elpone RtsLowered; A revived Hook commission is drafting a new pay bill for the armed services according to the "Navy Times." The pay increase for servicemen was brought up before the Armed Services Committee in Washington last Fall but was shelved to make way for more important legislation. Revival of the military pay increase was predicted by committee members because of continuing pressure for a civilian employees' salary hike. The Armed Services committee opened the way for the new bill by saying that they would consider any proposal presented to them before March 25th. This gave the Defense Department the go-ahead necessary to begin a study of the 1948 report on military pay. Charles R. Hook has been consulting with available members of the former commission, and if the new report recommends a pay increase, Secretary isn xpeted"if back it at the White House and on Capitol Hill. LETTERS INVITED Do you have any suggestions, complaints, or ideas you'd like to air in the Indian ? Letters from readers, brief and to-the-point, will be welcomed. Those which are suitable, and of general interest, will be published. Dates Announced For Next PO Exams If you are going to participate in the next Fleet-wide competitive exams for petty officer ratings, here is what you must do: You must be recommended by 30 April. In order to be recommended, you must have completed a Navy Training Course for the rate in which you will be examined, and the General Training Course for Petty Officers. The Navy Training Course is ordered through the Information and Education Office. The General Training Course may be obtained either through your division officer or I&E, but your division officer usually gives it. The dates for the exams are: 3rd class, 10 August; 2nd class, 17 August; 1st class, 24 August. In some rates, extra courses are needed. For example, boatswain's mates are required to have a course in cargo handling, which is obtained through their divisions. Also, commissarymen are required to have completed the Baker's Handbook. Remember, all this must be done by 30 April. 4Number Dial Starts A revision of the telephone rates for the base has been announced by the Telephone Officer. Effective with the close of business hours on March 31 this is the second rate change within a month and provides good news for residents of quarters on the base. The new charge for a main line telephone in all quarters on the Naval Base will be $4.00 per month. The non-recurring charges remain the same. The complete breakdown of the new rates is as follows: Main line (commercial contractors, concessionaries, business firms) -----------------------$9.00 Main line (public schools, American Red Cross, quasi-government agencies, exchanges, officer and enlisted messes, Armed Forces and Navy sponsoredarct-;$iTo6 Main line (residential) $4.00 Main line extension (residential) -$1.75 Main line extension (business) -$3.00 Effective April 1 a new dialing system on the telephone network will go into effect. Basically, the new system requires that four numbers be dialed regardless of what exchange area the caller may be in. A new telephone book will be issued on April 1 and several numbers have been changed. Officials of the telephone company urge all persons to look up the number they are calling to insure that they have the right combination. Then, regardless of what exchange area the caller may be in, all four numbers must be dialed. The new system was inaugurated to keep pace with the expansion of the base and improve the telephone service. Many new groups of numbers have been added to decrease the load on the fn,rcegdB'lps -have been decreased by the addition of new 1, 4 and 5 hundred listings. Telephone c o m p a ny officials stressed the importance of looking in the new directory before dialing the number. April Named 'Savings Bond Month' It has been announced by the Commander Naval Base that the period 1 April to 30 April 1954 will be "Savings Bond Month." During this period, a canvass of all military personnel will be made to explain the advantages of the Savings Bond Allotment Plan with a view toward increasing participation. Honor Man Honor Man at last week's Naval Station personnel inspection was Joseph M. Malmay Jr., BM1, of the 1st Division. Malmay, who hails from Monroe, La., has been in the Navy for 9 years. For the past 13 months, he has been serving on the Naval Station Master at Arms force. For four years prior to his being assigned here, he was stationed on board the USS William M. Wood, DD 715. At the same time, a drive will be held to increase the participation of American Civilian Employees of all base commands. This will be a separate drive. Each base command will submit reports prior to 10 May to the Base Savings Bond Officer containing the number of military personnel on board as of 1 April participating in the program, the number of military personnel on board as of 30 April participating in the program, and the total number on board at each command at the respective opening and closing dates. A similar report will be submitted to the Savings Bond Officer for civilian employees. Recently, two surveys were taken. One was made of the comparative participation of military personnel of base activities in the Savings Bond Allotment program as of 1 March 1954; and one was made of the participation of civilian employees participating in the program. For military personnel, Naval Station registered the highest percentage of personnel participating with 46.8 percent with VU10 running a close second with 44.8 percent. For the civilian employees, the Naval Base Headquarters registered highest with an even 50 percent and Naval Supply Depot turning in a percentage of 33.3.

My dear Admiral: The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis wishes me to thank you and all the members of your organization for their generous contribution to the 1954 March of Dimes.

3TMO Golf Hi-Lites by Wright North ivnitnu aignt Lanas ainsn; Unusual Catch Taken Off Leeward Chief Smouse and Fermin Pavila display their day's catch along with the sailfish which took 45 minutes to land. A perfect specimen of one of the finest game-fish in the Caribbean was landed off Leeward Point last Sunday, March 21st, by two ardent fisherman. John Smouse, BMC, and Fermin Pavila, civilian, landed the 47pound sailfish, known to the local folk as Pez-Vela, from their boat, using a Hurricane rod, 18-thread Ashaway line and a Penn 67 reel with herring as bait.

In the final match of the first half of the intra-command league VU-10, trailing Naval Station by 4/2 points, staged a great rally to defeat NavSta 141/2 to 9 and emerged as the first half winner by 1/2 point. CDR Spears' great chip shot from the fringe of the 18th green which dribbled into the cup proved to be the deciding factor of the 1/2 point victory. The final standing of the first half was: VU-10 ------------82 points NavSta-----------81/2 points NAS _--------68 points FTG _--------511/2 points NSD _----42 points Hospital -----------35 points Congratulations to Ensign Ruffini of the SeaBees who finished fifth in the recent Jamaica Amateur. Two other prizes were won by Gtmo golfers, but complete details are not yet available. The Santiago golf team will pay a visit to Gtmo on the 3rd and 4th of April for the annual Challenge Match of 36 holes. 18 holes will be played on Saturday afternoon and 18 on Sunday morning. The green bench you see on the 2nd tee was donated by Captain Yeager, CO USS DesMoines who frequently plays here on Sunday mornings. Other new benches have been placed on various tees for the players' benefit. The Scotch foursome Sunday is scheduled to start at 1300. Pairings and starting times will be published in the golf shop at 1700 today. Please call to check your starting time and not delay the play. All members are kindly requested to take more precaution on the 8th and 9th fairways and tees, particularly on week-ends when balls are flying everywhere and anywhere. The regular putting green is always closed on week-ends but the chipping green in the rear of the driving range is open. This green has the Tifton 57 Bermuda grass, and I'm sure the players will find it to be similar to the regular playing greens as far as putting is concerned. There are still many good buys in both store model and pro line model woods and irons as well as an assortment of Otey Christman putters. There are also some good buys in used golf clubs which all sales have to be negotiated between seller and buyer. The list is on the bulletin board in the pro shop. The present plans call for retopsoiling some more greens as well as most of the tees prior to April 1st. All players are requested to use the markers even though they will be in front of the regular tee. And as a hint for the weekin relation to teeing a ball, never use a full tee in teeing a ball up for an iron shot. The ball is naturally teed much lower for irons than woods since a slight divot is necessary in order to hit down and through, thereby putting a .reverse spin on the ball to stop it on the green. The point in not using the full tee is that the club head speed is decreased somewhat in breaking the tee, and there is always a chance of deflecting the left angle of the face which is necessary for the ball to travel in its intended flight. The long tee is, of course, necessary for woods, particularly the driver. Always check and see if the top of the face of the club is soled so that it meets the center of the ball. This also applies to the 2, 3 and 4 woods when using an artificial tee. Try and slant the tee just a little forward toward the line of intended flight so that the concave cup that holds the ball will let the ball move off straight instead of up. Along with other Navy sports for this year-the dates for the golf tournament at Jacksonville for players eligible from this area will be August 28, 29, 30 and 31. A tournament of 72 holes will very likely be held here prior to those dates with the low four and one or two alternates qualifying to attend. The NAS Jax layout is fast becoming one of the finest 18-hole courses in that part of Florida. LT Grego held the course record there for several years with a 4 -under -par -68. However, some yardage has been changed and the playing conditions have improved such that Irvin Scott, one of the great players in the Navy today. scored a 67 there last year. To those who may go-remember to practice your long irons and by all means practice playing from a trap. Ladies Golf Shots by Joyce Simmons You know, girls, with all the bad weather we've had this month, I'm beginning to wonder if the weatherman is doing it to retaliate for the ladies' switch to "long" shorts on the golf course. From all yours truly has heard from the male element on this base, the men never did object to the pretty little shorts most of the women still wear on the course every day but Ladies' Golf morning. As you already know, the rain cancelled out our golf this Wednesday, but it was agreed to try on Thursday, the weather permitting. As the Indian goes to press prior to the postponed match, you will have to wait until next week for the results. Sorry! In case some of you gals haven't received a copy of the recently printed "Ladies Rules", I'd advise you all to sectire a copy. Rule #6, in regards to trying to "one-fault" or just "taking two strokes" when an entire green is under repair, I feel is of exceptional interest for all the ladies. Don't forget the "Scotch Foursome" tomorrow, 28 March at 1:00 P. M., everyone. And girls, stop worrying about "how badly you might shoot. As I've been assured, a "high Handicap" is a big advantage from a man's point of view. So good luck to you all, and let's show the men we can really give them some golf worth noticing. Woman may be physically weaker than man, but she can put a cap on a frrit jar so tight he can't take it off. You grow up the day you have your first real laugh-at yourself. When life knocks you to your knees, which it always does, and always will-well, that's the best position in which to pray, isn't it? 'DIAN Saturday, 27 Marche.

FTG Bulletin Some of us spend so much energy running that we forget where we are going. It pays to stop a moment once in a while and take stock of where you stand. Commander, Fleet Training Group, stopped recently to do just that. The Training Group has compiled figures of just what has been accomplished by FTG at Guantanamo Bay in the last year from March 1953 to March 1954. The figures are impressive, to put it mildly. More than one ship a day, a total of 404 for the year, has passed into Guantanamo Bay for a period of Training under Cominander, Fleet Training Group. This period includes firing shore bombardment and AA batteries surface and torpedo firing, antisubmarine warfare training, full power speed runs, Combat Intelligence Center (CIC) air and surface problems, Low Visibility Electronic Navigation and Piloting, Man Overboard and Fueling at Sea exercises, and even the Mediterranean Moor (the backwards first approach to a wharf required in Mediterranean waters due to current and tide conditions). Other exercises of a confidential nature are also executed. Several Types Training Like students at school take different courses of study, ships at Guantanamo are given different courses of training. For example, 152 ships went through the FTG Gunfire Support training exercises at Culebra, the Fleet Training Group firing exercise island off the coast of Puerto Rico. Here ships practice fire control problems of the type required to support troops and amphibious operations, including indirect or reverse slope firing used in dropping shells into ridges or on the back side of a hill. The total includes 129 destroyers, 4 battleships, 10 cruisers and 9 LSMR's. A second type of training is the FTG Refresher Training, a yearly review of battle techniques for the ship enrolled in this course. A total of 149 ships passed through the six-week period which includes an arrival inspection, mid-term and final battle problems, exercises in seamanship, surface and AA firing, damage control and engineering drills, full power trials, and radar tracking of surface and air targets. Two weeks of anti-submarine warfare for destroyer types are also included, with submarines and lighter-than-air ships, also in training at Guantanamo, participating in the exercises. Shakedown training for newly commissioned or recommissioned ships was given to 14 ships in the past year, including four carriers, one cruiser, six destroyers and three LST's. Breaking in a new ship involves a great many problems not normally encountered in ship's training. A new crew on a new ship, untested equipment, battery alignment and compass deviation: these are a few of the problems encountered as a ship's officers and crew get the "feel" of their ship and each other during shakedown training at Guantanamo. At the conclusion of shakedown training, an inexperienced crew will be transformed into a fighting team ready to operate at peak battle efficiency. Independent Exercise ships and special training exercises round out the year's total of ship training periods for the Fleet Training Group. Forty-six ships have conducted special exercises of many types while operating from Guantanamo, and 43 ships have been here on independent exercise asHospital Notes AQ(CtC Me U SmoS Heirport News During the past week, the following births were recorded: Timothy Lamar Yarbough, son of EN2 and Mrs. William E. Yarbough; Grace Rebecca Ricker, daughter of LT and Mrs. Robert E. Ricker; Joanna Lynn Reaves, daughter of LTJG and Mrs. Joseph C. Reaves; and Kent Eugene Payne, son of LT and Mrs. S. T. Payne. Departures Last week saw two of our key basketball players, D. F. Bomkamp, HM2, and T. C. Boesel, HM2, leave for the Naval Amphibious Base, Little Creek, Virginia for duty. Among their other accomplishments, they were quite active in bowling, golf, and baseball. Bomkamp stood tenth in the final Base Basketball League among the high scorers, with an average of 9.9 per game. Their loss will be acutely felt in forthcoming athletic events. Officers Bowling League Last week, the Hospital Team No. 1 went into 2nd place, only one game behind the league leaders, by grabbing all four from FTGOPAIR. LT Mason rolled a beautiful 588 set with two 200 games, a 206 and 209, while CWOHC Novak came up with a 204 single and a 581 set. Hospital Team No. 3 jumped from 10th to 8th place when they took three points from a hardfighting NSD No. 1 team. High man for the winners was LT Strauss who entered the 500 Club Circle with a 501. All was not peaches and cream, however. Hospital Team No. 2 slipped from 11th to 12th place, giving NSD No. 2 three points and currently 3rd place. DANGER None of us would deliberately contribute to the suffering of another. Yet, the extremely poor response to the recent appeal for blood donors amounts to just that. During the past week, only two individuals have placed their names on the Hospital Blood Donor List. Stated briefly, this is what takes place when you come to the hospital to have your name put on the list: A simple, painless prick on the end of the finger, solely to determine-or confirm-your blood type and Rh Factor, is all that is done. You do not donate the blood until called upon. Is that too much to ask? Quoting a well-worn slogan, "The life you save may be your own." Kathy, aged five, was permitted to attend her first party. Upon her return home, her mother asked her all about it. "Were you the youngest one there?" she queried. "No," replied Kathy, ever so smugly. "There was a gentleman there who came in a baby carriage." signments. The total figure by types of ships which have trained under Commapder, Fleet Training Group, in the last 12 months, including those ships which have been here more than once, is 285 destroyer types, 40 auxiliaries, 29 cruisers, 15 aircraft carriers, 14 battleships, 12 amphibious force ships, six submarines and three others. "The great volume of training here is a source of pride to personnel of the Fleet Training Group and of the Naval Base," comments Captain F. L. Tedder, Commander, Fleet Training Group. The FTG motto, "Training Service to the Fleet," has been well fulfilled by the accomplishments of the past year. by Sgt. William J. McDowell, Jr., USMC Departing for the States this week were Cpl Robert L. Tribbie, Pfc's Williard L. Bjork, Carlton L. Russell, and Gene E. Hill. All four men will go to the 2nd Marine Division, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. And we would like to say from all the officers and men who have worked with them and have known them, "GOOD LUCK" and may you enjoy yourself at Camp Lejeune as much as we enjoyed having you with us.
