'55 Annual Carnival Leeward Foint Air Strip

PinQ fleit IUndprwy Takes Heavy Load of Jet


Slated For 4 Big Days


Plans and preparations for the 1955 Annual Guantanamo Bay Carnival are already well underway. Beginning on 19 Feb. and running through Washington's Birthday, the gala four-day event will feature better-than-ever prizes, concession booths, games of skill, and other events staged to gain founds for the American Charities, the Base Community Fund and other activity which have no other source of funds.
According to Carnival Chairman, CAPT W. R. Caruthers, the yearly event will begin on Saturday, 19 Feb. when RADM Edmund B. Taylor, Commander, Naval Base, officially cuts the tape and opens the carnival to all base and Fleet personnel at 1300. Sunday, 20 Feb., the Carnival will again open at 1300. Monday, activity will commence later, with concessions, booths and rides opening at 1700. Finally, on Tuesday, 22 Feb.Washington's Birthday-the carnival will close with a gay and festive day from 1000 in the morning to 2000 that night. The drawings for the prizes will be held the last night.
Heading the long list of valuable prizes and awards for the 1955 carnival edition, is a 1955 Dodge Royal 4-door sedan fully equipped, another sedan plus a miniature Ford Sports model for children. Personnel will be able to buy their shares in these prizes at 25i each. Ticket sales will be announced later.
This past year, the Guantanamo Bay Carnival made available $32,750 for the Base Community Fund which functions as a local Community Chest. In addition to this, funds were used last year and will be used in the coming carnival edition for activities which have no other source of funds.
Contributions were made last year to American Charities, which include the March of Dimes, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, the Cancer Society, Navy Relief, the Heart Fund, and the Tubercolosis Society. These contributions amounted to $14,250.
On the Naval Base, $2,100 was used to finance the Little League activities; $2,750 was used to construct playgrounds in t'e horsing areas; and $3,000 was contributed to Cuban charities. Besides this, the funds from the carnival were used to finance Boy Scout, Girl Scout, and teenage activities, as well as many other smaller but important activities on the base. At nrssent, several other community pro jects are being contemplated which will completely exhaust all funds.

Leeward Point has begun another month of intensive air-toair gunnery; its low quonsets accomodate VF-172 of Jacksonville, Florida, and VMF-122 of 'Cherry Point, N.C. Sunrise is nature's signal for pilots to swarm to the line in ballet-tight G suits. with bright colored crash helmets and kneeboards tucked under their arms. They will 'fly the pants off things' with as many as three sorties a day, and their respective squadrons will consume some 30,000 gallons of fuel each by sundown.
Four Banshees from VF-172 swoop low over the runway, the blue thunderbolt emblazzened on a silver streak. Tuesday, 172 begins their first live gunnery runs, (at the months end they will have fired 76,000 rounds.) CDR Glen Estes is skipper of the Blue Bolts, and LCDR Paul Miller Jr. serves as exec. VF-172, a part of Carrier Group 17, recently completed a world tour on the USS WASP, and will return to Jax in December. We meet LT J. Hubner, PIO (Continued on Page Five)


ComNavBase Receives First


100 Additional New Housing Units Proposed


For Naval Base Enlisted Men, Junior Officers

By late 1955, it may be possible for personnel assigned to Guantanamo Bay to bring their families with them when reporting for duty here on the Naval Base. This fact may be made possible by the recent proposal for 100 additional new housing units; sixty for enlisted personnel and forty to be constructed for junior officers.

The Chaplain's Corner
LEST WE FORGET
November 11, once observed as Armistice Day to memorialize the end of World War I has been changed to Veteran's Day. The change is essentially only in name. The spirit that prompted the original observance of the day must permeate any observance of this day if it is going to be of any real value or if it is to endure. Basically it is a memorial day.
As such it calls upon us to look back across the relatively more recent years of our national history. We can not do this without a justifiable sense of pride, without recognition of God's hand in our national destiny. Ours is a great heritage, but it is also a costly heritage. We dare not forget those whose sacrifices and privations, whose suffering and anguish, whose toil and hopes, whose shed blood and death have made sacred the pages of our history. To forget would be the evidence of grossest ingratitude.
To remember, to honor those who have defended and uph 'd our nation and its id-als the j.t t reward due them. That alone would justify the setting aside of such a day as Veteran; Day. It does not, however, fulfil th ' purpose of the day nor does it fulfill our obligation. That can only be done when each of us, personally and individually, values what they have done, and the ideals and truths upon which our counti'y has been built. Our evaluation of these will very clearly be revealed by our daily living. The depth of our belief and commitment to those basic 'principles upon which our freedom, our democracy is based will be demonstrated by the moral quality of our thoughts and actions. When you cheat another even in a small matter, you open the door to all who may cheat you hugely. When you decide it is smart to be cynical, you hand your door key to a crook. When you accept a prejudice, you help your neighbor to become a liar and a bigot. When you lower your standards of honesty, justice, purity, chastity, duty, and faith, you weaken the whole structure of your own life and our democracy.
You do not have the proper apperciation for their sacrifice. You are in danger of forgetting. Freediom does not rest upon law-but upon men-for men make laws-men break or obey laws.

So as to reduce the per capita daily consumption FRESH WATER CONSERVATION IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE. At present the per capita consumption is high enough to indicate that there is an injudicious use of water throughout the Base. This can be avoided by using certain easy controls in the regular every day use. Some advantageous controls that can be initiated by all hands are: Supervision of all watering continually. See that water valves are tightly shut off as soon as sufficient sprinkling is accomplished. Do not indulge in all night sprinkling of gardens and lawns. Disconnect hose at service connections after completion of sprinkling. Do not permit children to play or tamper with house service connections for sprinkling or watering. Report all leaks to the Public Works Department promptly. Do not permit the washing of dishes or clothing with basins or tubs unstoppered. Do not leave water running continuously in plastic wading pools. In other words: LETS GOVERN THE USE OF WATER IN OUR HOUSEHOLDS JUST AS THOUGH WE WERE PERSONNALLY PAYING FOR EACH GALLON USED.

Naval Station Announces Bay Vets Day On Picnic


Christmas Leave Policy

Holiday leave will be granted during the coming Christmas and New Years season in a manner similar to that of former years. Approximately 40% of the attached personnel will be authorized leave in the states in two leave parties. This will allow aproxiniately 20% of attached personnel on leave at any one particular time. The leave period will commence on December 10, 1954 and continue through until January 20, 1955. Between Christmas and New Years there will be an overlap of about four days, when personnel will be leaving and returning, which may increase the number of personnel out of the area to about 30% for the four day period.
During this period no advance leave will be granted. Personnel with the longest period of time since going on leave will be given priority for these leave partie-. Leave requests should be in the Personnel Office on or before November 15 for screening and scheduling.
Officers and chief petty officers dseiring leave during this period will arrange for stand-bys for duties. Supernumeries will not be used to cover an absent officer or chief petty officer.
Transportation for leave will be arranged by the Personnel Office through the Port Operations Office

The newly designated Veterans' Day (formerly Armistice Day) this year was celebrated Thursday by some 700 Naval Staton personnel and their dependents at a picnic held at Phillips Park.
Commencing at 11 o'clock the holiday celebration featured various athletic events-tug o 'war, softball, volleyball, etc.-and several contests such as an egg throw, golf chipping contest and horse shne pitching contest.
The Naval Base band played for the occasion and there were refreshments a-plenty for everyone.
The kiddies, too, were taken care of with horseback rides on horses from the Naval Station corral.
The picnic was ended about 4:30 and, from all reports, the customary good time was had by all.

Barber: "You been here before? Your face is familiar."
Customer: "Shouldn't be. It's all healed, up now."

Experience is what you have after you've lost everything else.

or by FLAW in some cases.
Leave on the Naval Base and in nearby Cuba will be in accord with current directives and within the limits as to the number of personnel and amount of leave.
A leave list will be published about December 8 for the information of all personnel concerned.

Pointers Fall Back in Barrage of Shellackings
by Hal Davis

Powers' Pointers from across the Bay. reeling under a barrage of shellackings during the week, dropped a full game and a half behind the potent 'Bees of MCB-4 as the base league moved into the final phases of play.
The first defeat of the week suffered by the Pointers was at the
hands of a galvanized Naval Station Indian nine. The Dempseymen took the lead in the first inning, lost it in the second, tied
it in the third and went on with

It was Wood's homer in the seeond inning with two men on that

joyful time singing and mixing with Fleet and Base personnel.
At the corral, the English sailors have been steady customers as well Ls the Sail Boat landing, the Skating Rink, and the swimming pool. The English, however, have not taken to the ball fields too well, since softball and baseball are both foreign to them.


- Officers from the H.M.S. SUPERB arrive at the sailboat locker in the SUPERB gig, ready to challenge the fish in Gtmo Bay. The party, twelve in all, went out in two boats from Ship's Department last Sunday afternoon.

Officer of VMF-122, in the pilot's ready room. He emerges from a huddle of young officers who have just reviewed the morning's hop on a small blackboard... The Marines will not begin their gunnery until Friday, but already have been averaging 50 sorties a day. Soon the divisions (four planes plus the tow) will compete in inter squadron sharpshooting.
VMF-122 is part of the 2nd Marine Air Wing. They have been the first to receive jets (phantoms) and now are the first to fly the swept wing Furies (January '54). The entire squadron is field-carrier qualified and. will join the USS CORAL SEA in a shakedown cruise, February.
The Marine Corps Photographic Unit is also busy at Leeward. They chronicle the daily progress of this day fighter unit for a film appropriately called, "Fury." The public will soon view it on their TV and motion picture screens.
Four FJ2's taxi up the apron, their jet scoops spraying puffs of coral dust like so much grape shot, and scorching the remnants of the erstwhile cow pasture. Soon they will fade over the horizon, leaving only a wisp of vapor and a reverberating piercing wail. The Werewolves and Blue Bolts, with the assistance of alert Leeward crews, will crowd many more air hours, and gunnery rounds in the hectic weeks ahead.
It is like setting up light housekeeping in the crater of Vesuvaus.

The new type housing units that have been erected have left on hand many of the old type quonset hut buildings, which leaves a big question. How can these buildings be utilized? This question is presently being answered. The buildings which were at East Bargo have all been removed, all except one, which will remain and be fixed over into maids quarters.
The remainder of the buildings are presently being utilized as storage places, meeting places, etc. One is being used as a meeting place for the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts and one is also being used by the Girl Scouts and Brownie Scouts of the Base.

Saturday, 13 November 1954 THE INDIAN Pagd Seven


Gooks' fouv

by Dorothy Murphy

Mrs. F. L. Tedder, wife of Captain Tedder, Fleet Training Group Commander, was reared in Hawaii and has collected, tested and improved upon many exotic recipes. She has been assisted here in Guantanamo in this culinary hobby by her cook, Mrs. Julia Beckford and S. Tiaba, Steward second class. Mrs. Beckford has worked at the Tedder's quarters on Evans Point for the entire period of the Captain's tour here, and according to Mrs. Tedder, has helped inestimably in developing many new taste varieties.
Mango chutney is but one of their experiments which has turned out well. This piquant relish is obtainable in commercial brands, however like most such products, the "home-made" proves more .atisfactory. For those then who like a novel taste thrill, here is the recipe for:
MANGO CHUTNEY
Ingredients:
25 form green small mangoes,
beginning to turn yellow.
(Note: The large Indian mangoes are not suitable.)
Salt
1 C Fresh ginger root, chopped (obtainable in Guantanamo City.)
1/2 Large Onion, chopped
1 Whole Garlic (optional)
Lb. Seedless Raisins
% Lb. Currants
% C Preserved Ginger
3 Lbs. Brown Sugar
1 to 2 Qts. Vinegar
%,I C Chopped Chili Peppers
(Small Red, Hot variety, obtainable in Guantanamo)
1 Scant Teaspoon Nutmeg
1 Cloves
1 Ginger
2 " " Allspice
1/4 Lb. Blanched Almonds,
shreeded.
METHOD: Peel and cut mangoes in rather large pieces. Sprinkle well with salt and let stand over night. Wash off salt in the morning. Chop onion, ginger, garlic, peppers (use more it hotter chutney is desired) and presrved ginger. (The latter may be eliminated.) Boil the fresh chopped ginger root for % hour and drain. Tie spices in a bag (a sugar bag large enough to allow for swelling is suitable), and boil sugar, vinegar and spices for % hour. Add onions, ginger, garlic, raisins, currant and peppers. Boil for 15 minutes.
Next add half of mangoes and boil for hour. Then add nuts and rest of mangoes and boil 1 and % hours. Stir very often, as this sticks very quickly. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Chutney keeps well and improves with age. The above recipe makes approximately four quarts.


Here's A Now Angle

Here's a new excuse:
A sailor reported back from leave, 24 hours late.
He explained: "I'm returning from my leave, and just about to board the train when the band strikes up the 'Star - Spangled Banner.' I, of course, freeze to attention, saluting. And while I'm standing there at salute what happens but the train pulls out of the station right in front of my eyes, and nothing I could do about it."


CAPT, Mrs Tedder


Entertain English Staff

Captain and Mrs. F. L. Tedder entertained the officers of the HMS Superb, British ship visiting the Guantanamo Bay area, Tuesday, November 2 with a cocktail party at their quarters on Evans Point. Approximately 175 guests attended including commanding and executive officers of all base activities with their wives.
Commodore D. H. Connell-Fuller, captain of the Superb, and executive officer, Commander A. A. Diggens, RN, DSC, headed the group of English officers. Although there are 60 officers aboard the cruiser, all were unable to attend the function.
Admiral and Mrs. E. B. Taylor were accompanied by Mrs. E. B. Taylor, the Base Commander's mother, visiting from Ohio. CDR and Mrs. W. E. Simmons attended with Mr. and Mrs. Earl C. Simmons, parents of the Fleet Training Group Operations Officer, who are spending several weeks here. They are from Alaska.
Mrs. Mildred W. Wells was present with her son and daughter-inlaw, LT and Mrs. P. F. Wells II. Dr. Wells' mother is ending a European tour here and will return soon to her home in Tennessee.

Sylvia was doing a great job of supervising and keeping the various jobs going full speed-Sharon K. using her artistic touch on painting the rocks along the walkway and making a neat entrance for us, while Stanley and Phil were pushing the lawnmowers and taking care of the grounds. Pat F. and Nancy H. and others were buzzing around like busy little bees-lending a hand where they were needed. The place is looking real "snazzy", thanks to Mrs. Fojt and our faithful workers. This week, the paint brushes will be flying back and forth (sorta on the assembly-line order) getting the fence around our new patio painted-so, come on down Kats, lend a hand and help to get the work done-it's your club, ya know! !
Nancy A. celebrated her birthday last Sunday by having some friends in for refreshments and then on to the movies in a group
-Happy Birthday, gal! !
Tonight, we'll climb up the mountain to Jerry Warren's house after the movies to look at the view (they say it's amazing the things that can be seen from way up there!) and to try out some of our new dance steps. Be sure to wear your walking shoes, it's a long trek up the hill! !
Congrats to Phil K. on his high scores in bowling-hear our team is doing all right. . . .

Departures
Three Marines departed from the sunny tropics of Gtmo Bay within the past week in the person of TSgt Eddie Anderson, Cpl BarrielRodriguez, and Pfc Carl Boan. TSgt Anderson and Pfc Boan are scheduled to report to Norfolk Va. for further transfer to the 2nd Marine Division, Camp Lejeune, N.C. Cpl Barriel-Rodriguez will report to San Juan, Puerto Rico for duty pending discharge. We all wish them the best of luck upon their departure.
Promotions
Fifteen smiling faces proudly stepped forward to receive promotions to the next higher ranks in ceremonies performed last Friday afternoon. Three men receiving a promotion to the rank of Sergeant were Eugene P. Frontz, Walter G. Harris, and Donald M. Lemos. The twelve new Corporals are as follows: Arnold D. Bailey, Elwood C. Chapman, "I" "C" Foley, Arthur C. Gourdine, Marvin Y. Holcomb, Lested Liddy, James Liggett, Henry Lorrie, George McCue, Robert Mitchell, Harold Stevenson, and Glenn White. "Congratulations" Corporals and the best of luck as the Corps "NCO's".
Rifle Team Match
"Ready on the right, ready on the left," were the words heard at the rifle range last Wednesday


that are being done to help us along the road ahead of us.
Pizza is here to stay . . . ask any red blooded American TEENAGER living in Cuba. (Except Anita). Especially after Nancy's pizza party last Friday eve. Mrs. Dibella did the oven honors with the pie and MAN it was the eatin'est!
Aside from eating we had Phil telling us the story about the only Russian living in Cuba who was born in Algeria, his name was Frenchie and they called him Dutch for short. While all this was going on, Cavie was busy accompanying Maryalice as she sang "Deep Purple".
The outstanding event of the evening was a new game played for the first time on the base and introduced by our gal Miss Murphy. Jack Stafford really got a charge out of it.
Nancy's little sister was carrying on the wildest of gun battles with Neil. Our hero went the way of all god heroes.
Pat 0. was burning up the floor with her crazy bop. Some of us have it and some of us don't.
Burke was telling about the ups and downs of his new (to him anyway) "Squirrel Eight". (Can't even keep himself in peanuts anymoree)
DID YA' DIG-Diana H. trying like mad to get ole "Buck" to giddyup-Ronnie R. and his puzzling nath problem-Jeanie C. shopping for more earrings to add to her fabulous collection-all the gals making a dash to pickup the new "Song Hits" sheet-Neil faithfully guarding the lives of all the bathing beauties at the pool (all of a sudden, we're all poor swinners! !)
-Dave and Marise-Jim C. and his "gavel" keeping order at the meeting Sat. nite-Betty cooling off at the pool-Mike D. being homesick for N.Y.-and last, but far from least, the chicks rushing to get a good seat at the movies (in the rain, no less) to see Marlon Brando! !


morning as the Marine Barracks challenged the visiting British Royal Marines, attached to the H.M.S. Superb, to a rifle team match. The local shooters posted a team score of 2064 to defeat the Royal Marines, who's total score was 1714. High shooters for the Marine Barracks were Cpl Harold Stevenson, 228; Cpl James Liggestt, 222; 2dLt D. L. Bell, 212; and Pfc Arvil Garten, 211. High shooters for the visiting British Marines were Johnson and Rogers who fired scores of 197 and 195.
Softball
Misfortune smiled while "Lady Luck" turned her back on the Marine softball team last Friday evening as the Leathernecks dropped a 9-4 decision to the Leeward Point nine. A deathly blow was dealt to the Leathernecks hopes of a league title as their ace pitcher, Bernard Lee, suffered a broken right ankle covering home plate on a close play as a result of a passed ball. With the score 3-1 in favor of the Marines, Lees' departure from the game was significant by the final result of the 9-4 loss.
On Tuesday evening the Leathernecks engaged the league leaders from MCB-4 hoping to gain ground on the Seabee nine but the need for stronger pitching proved to be significant as the Marines dropped a 19-12 decision to the league leaders. The loss, second in succession, leaves the Marines with a 4-3 reocrd at this writing.

Aftermath
A meritorious mast was held last week for Ted Coleman, ACC/AP and Clayton Wdlis, ACC/AP. The two pilots assisted in tne search on February 19, 1954 for the young son of Don F. Bacardi. Other 'nifheaters' trm the ANTIETAN CVA -:6 also helped track the kidnappers anar Saniago. A letter from Mr. Bacardi through the American Consulate in Santiago, officially commended them for aiding in the rescue and ultimate capture .
It seems that many factions owe a debt of gratitude to the Search and Rescue team at NAS. In a span of a few months, they have delved in maternity cases, chesed kidnappers, rescued a jet pilot, and flown in serum and vital supplies to Haiti's stricken area.
A Manchester mail carrier relaved a message from Gtmo to the mother of J. A. Should, CWO. This was one of the hundreds of calls of reassurance to stateside relatives, following Hazel's near mis-. The article appeared in the Manchester paper, a vivid' -omiader of tbc' ham operators efficiency.

Whenever we think of the fantastic career of our former exec, Shakespeare's old quote from Twelfth Night comes to min"I' il (his life story) were played on a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction." Beside appearing briefly in "Don Winslow" comic strips (while Pensacola P.

Two officers walked into the Leeward Point EM Club not long ago, wearing their duty sidearms. A well known habitue of the Rock sauntered over, squinted, and said, "Well-the James Boys."
Here's a salute to the Leeward Point Crash crew. Working quietly and efficiently they have earned the admiration of visiting squadrons and are acknowledged as one of the best crews on the Atlantic Coast . . . take our word for it, the boys are first.
Leeward will lose 61 men through discharge and transfer in the next few moltis. It is said that Crew Chief's how in the direction of Washington ill hopes that replacenments will be sent soon.

----Govers (cTMO Like The Sernskiine" --_____ Vol. VI, No. 70 U. S. Naval Base, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Saturday, 13 November 1954 '55 Annual Carnival Leeward Point Air Strip PIanQ rGDt llnderwav Takes Heavy Load of Jet Slated For 4 Big Days Plans and preparations for the 1955 Annual Guantanamo Bay Carnival are already well underway. Beginning on 19 Feb. and running through Washington's Birthday, the gala four-day event will feature better-than-ever prizes, concession booths, games of skill, and other events staged to gain founds for the American Charities, the Base Community Fund and other activity which have no other source of funds. According to Carnival Chairman, CAPT W. R. Caruthers, the yearly event will begin on Saturday, 19 Feb. when RADM Edmund B. Taylor, Commander, Naval Base, officially cuts the tape and opens the carnival to all base and Fleet personnel at 1300. Sunday, 20 Feb., the Carnival will again open at 1300. Monday, activity will commence later, with concessions, booths and rides opening at 1700. Finally, on Tuesday, 22 Feb.Washington's Birthday-the carnival will close with a gay and festive day from 1000 in the morning to 2000 that night. The drawings for the prizes will be held the last night. Heading the long list of valuable prizes and awards for the 1955 carnival edition, is a 1955 Dodge Royal 4-door sedan fully equipped, another sedan plus a miniature Ford Sports model for children. Personnel will be able to buy their shares in these prizes at 250r each. Ticket sales will be announced later. This past year, the Guantanamo Bay Carnival made available $32,750 for the Base Community Fund which functions as a local Community Chest. In addition to this, funds were used last year and will be used in the coming carnival edition for activities which have no other source of funds. Contributions were made last year to American Charities, which include the March of Dimes, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, the Cancer Society, Navy Relief, the Heart Fund, and the Tubercolosis Society. These contributions amounted to $14,250. On the Naval Base, $2,100 was used to finance the Little League activities; $2,750 was used to construct playgrounds in tbe housing areas; and $3,000 was contributed to Cuban charities. Besides this, the funds from the carnival were used to finance Boy Scout, Girl Scout, and teenage activities, as well as many other smaller but important activities on the base. At present, several other community projects are being contemplated which will completely exhaust all funds. Squadron Gunnery Training by Dick Friz Three miles cross bay as the buzzard flies, Hatuey Mountain and an unrestricted 'wide blue yonder,' curtain a narrow ribbon of concrete -a tropical Lincoln Highway for perpetual sorties of F2H2's and FJ2's. Leeward Point has begun another month of intensive air-toair gunnery; its low quonsets accomodate VF-172 of Jacksonville, Florida, and VMF-122 of Cherry Point, N.C. Sunrise is nature's signal for pilots to swarm to the line in ballet-tight G suits. with bright colored crash helmets and kneeboards tucked under their arms. They will 'fly the pants off things' with as many as three sorties a day, and their respective squadrons will consume some 30,000 gallons of fuel each by sundown. Four Banshees from VF-1.72 swoop low over the runway, the blue thunderbolt emblazzened on a silver streak. Tuesday, 172 begins their first live gunnery runs, (at the months end they will have fired 76,000 rounds.) CDR Glen Estes is skipper of the Blue Bolts, and LCDR Paul Miller Jr. serves as exec.

J. Sullivan (Catholic) LCDR K. G. Peterson (Protestant) The Chaplain's Corner LEST WE FORGET November 11, once observed as Armistice Day to memorialize the end of World War I has been changed to Veteran's Day. The change is essentially only in name. The spirit that prompted the original observance of the day must permeate any observance of this day if it is going to be of any real value or if it is to endure. Basically it is a memorial day. As such it calls upon us to look back across the relatively more recent years of our national history. We can not do this without a justifiable sense of pride, without recognition of God's hand in our national destiny. Ours is a great heritage, but it is also a costly heritage. We dare not forget those whose sacrifices and privations, whose suffering and anquish, whose toil and hopes, whose shed blood and death have made sacred the pages of our history. To forget would be the evidence of grossest ingratitude. To remember, to honor thosa who have defended and upha'd our nation and its id, als the jtll't reward due them. That alone would justify the setting aide of such a tlay as Veteran; Day. It does not, however, flfil th purlpoee of the day nor does it fulfill our obligation. That can only be clone when each of us, personally and individually, values what they have done, and the ideals and truths upon which our country has been built. Our evaluation of these will very clearly be revealed by our daily living. The depth of our belief and colmmitlent to those basic principles upon which our freedom, our democracy is based will be demonstrated by the moral quality of our thoughts and actions. When you cheat another even in a small matter, you open the door to all who may cheat you hugely. When you decide it is smart to be cynical, you hand your door key to a crook. When you accept a prejudice, you help your neighbor to become a liar and a bigot. When you lower your standards of honesty, justice, purity, chastity, duty, and faith, you weaken the whole structure of your own life and our democracy. You do not have the proper apperciation for their sacrifice. You are in danger of forgetting. Freedom does not rest upon law-but upon men-for men make lawsmen break or obey laws. Karl G. Peterson

The piece on this branch will windup the write-up on the activities under the Utilities Branch of Mr. Ira C. Teagle, Leadingman Electrician (Lineman), who is responsible for the construction and maintenance of the power and light It is under the direct supervision distribution system on the Base. The responsibility includes primary and secondary lines (Overhead and Underground), substations, manholes, poles, transformers, and switching stations. It is responsible for the power system up to the service disconnect terminals, or in the event that there are not any, to the meter socket. It is also responsible for the electrical systems on wharves and piers up to and including the ship-to-shore outlet. Anything in this regards beyond this point is performed by the Maintenance Division electricians. Maintain and repair all electical meters. Inspects and maintains street lighting systems. As the branch is made up of personnel considered as "hot line workers" they will perform work on high voltage lines. The Public Works Officer is responsible for all issues of water to shore activities and through the g p sponsible for reporting same on a monthly basis to the Supply Officer and Accounting Officer of the Naval Supply Depot. So as to reduce the per capita daily consumption FRESH WATER CONSERVATION IS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE. At present the per capita consumption is high enough to indicate that there is an injudicious use of water throughout the Base. This can be avoided by using certain easy controls in the regular every day use. Some advantageous controls that can be initiated by all hands are: Supervision of all watering continually. See that water valves are tightly shut off as soon as sufficient sprinkling is accomplished. Do not indulge in all night sprinkling of gardens and lawns. Disconnect hose at service connections after completion of sprinkling. Do not permit children to play or tamper with house service connections for sprinkling or watering. Report all leaks to the Public Works Department promptly. Do not permit the washing of dishes or clothing with basins or tubs unstoppered. Do not leave water running continuously in plastic wading pools. In other words: LETS GOVERN THE USE OF WATER IN OUR HOUSEHOLDS JUST AS THOUGH WE WERE PERSONNALLY PAYING FOR EACH GALLON USED. Issue of Home Loan Certifications Due Soon; Career Servicemen Eligible Under New Directive Washington (AFPS)-Career servicemen soon will be able to obtain pplication forms for the newly authorized home loan insurance.

Naval Station Announces Christmas Leave Policy Holiday leave will be granted during the coming Christmas and New Years season in a manner similar to that of former years. Approximately 40% of the attached personnel will be authorized leave in the states in two leave parties. This will allow aproximately 20% of attached personnel on leave at any one particular time. The leave period will commence on December 10, 1954 and continue through until January 20, 1955. Between Christmas and New Years there will be an overlap of about four days, when personnel will be leaving and returning, which may increase the number of personnel out of the area to about 30% for the four day period. During this period no advance leave will be granted. Personnel with the longest period of time since going on leave will be given priority for these leave parties Leave requests should be in the Personnel Office on or before November 15 for screening and scheduling. Officers and chief petty officers dseiring leave during this period will arrange for stand-bys for duties. Supernumeries will not be used to cover an absent officer or chief petty officer. Transportation for leave will be arranged by the Personnel Office through the Port Operations Office NavSta Personnel Spend Gay Vets Day On Picnic The newly designated Veterans' Day (formerly Armistice Day) this year was celebrated Thursday by some 700 Naval Staton personnel and their dependents at a picnic held at Phillips Park. Commencing at 11 o'clock the holiday celebration featured various athletic events-tug o'war, softball, volleyball, etc.-and several contests such as an egg throw, golf chipping contest and horse shoe pitching contest. The Naval Base band played for the occasion and there were refreshments a-plenty for everyone. The kiddies, too, were taken care of with horseback rides on horses from the Naval Station corral. The picnic was ended about 4:30 and, from all reports, the customary good time was had by all. Barber: "You been here before? Your face is familiar." Customer: "Shouldn't be. It's all healed up now." Experience is what you have after you've lost everything else. or by FLAW in some cases. Leave on the Naval Base and in nearby Cuba will be in accord with current directives and within the limits as to the number of personnel and amount of leave. A leave list will be published about December 8 for the information of all personnel concerned. 0 m THE INDIAN Page Three E it N G D is H th re m w va D w w to in af sp T ar M o-

The Dempseymen took the lead in the first inning, lost it in the second, tied it in the third and went on with a run apiece in the 6th and 7th to tuck away the victory, 6 to 4. It was Wood's homer in the second inning with two men on that swallowed up the Indian lead and gave the Pointers a 4 to 3 advantage. Pete Petinak, newcomer to the Naval Station this season, produced a pair of doubles for the night. The one in the 6th inning scored Jerry Morgan and proved to be the winning run for the Braves.

VMF-122 is part of the 2nd Marine Air Wing. They have been the first to receive jets (phantoms) and now are the first to fly the swept wing Furies (January '54). The entire squadron is field-carrier qualified and. will join the USS CORAL SEA in a shakedown cruise, February. The Marine Corps Photographic Unit is also busy at Leeward.

Saturday, 13 November 1954 Gooks' Tour by Dorothy Murphy Mrs. F. L. Tedder, wife of Captain Tedder, Fleet Training Group Commander, was reared in Hawaii and has collected, tested and improved upon many exotic recipes. She has been assisted here in Guantanamo in this culinary hobby by her cook, Mrs. Julia Beckford and S. Tiaba, Steward second class. Mrs. Beckford has worked at the Tedder's quarters on Evans Point for the entire period of the Captain's tour here, and according to Mrs. Tedder, has helped inestimably in developing many new taste varieties. Mango chutney is but one of their experiments which has turned out well. This piquant relish is obtainable in commercial brands, however like most such products, the "home-made" proves more satisfactory. For those then who like a novel taste thrill, here is the recipe for: MANGO CHUTNEY Ingredients: 25 form green small mangoes, beginning to turn yellow. (Note: The large Indian nmangoes are not suitable.) Salt 1/4 C Fresh ginger root, chopped (obtainable in Guantanamo City.) Large Onion, chopped /2 Whole Garlic (optional) % Lb. Seedless Raisins Lb. Currants /s C Preserved Ginger 3 Lbs. Brown Sugar 1 to 2 Qts. Vinegar /s C Chopped Chili Peppers (Small Red, Hot variety, obtainable in Guantanamo) 1 Scant Teaspoon Nutmeg 1 " Cloves 1 " Ginger 2 " Allspice 1 Lb. Blanched Almonds, shreeded. METHOD: Peel and cut mangoes in rather large pieces. Sprinkle well with salt and let stand over night. Wash off salt in the morning. Chop onion, ginger, garlic, peppers (use more it hotter chutney is desired) and presrved ginger. (The latter may be eliminated.) Boil the fresh chopped ginger root for 1/2 hour and drain. Tie spices in a bag (a sugar bag large enough to allow for swelling is suitable), and boil sugar, vinegar and spices for /2 hour. Add onions, ginger, garlic, raisins, currant and peppers. Boil for 15 minutes. Next add half of mangoes and boil for 1I2 hour. Then add nuts and rest of mangoes and boil 1 and % hours. Stir very often, as this sticks very quickly. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. Chutney keeps well and improves with age. The above recipe makes approximately four quarts. Here's A New Angle Here's a new excuse: A sailor reported back from leave, 24 hours late. He explained: "I'm returning from my leave, and just about to board the train when the band strikes up the 'Star -Spangled Banner.' I, of course, freeze to a attention, saluting. And while I'm standing there at salute what happens but the train pulls out of the station right in front of my eyes, and nothing I could do about it." CAPT, Mrs Tedder Entertain English Staff Captain and Mrs. F. L. Tedder entertained the officers of the HMS Superb, British ship visiting the Guantanamo Bay area, Tuesday, November 2 with a cocktail party at their quarters on Evans Point. Approximately 175 guests attended including commanding and executive officers of all base activities with their wives. Commodore D. H. Connell-Fuller, captain of the Superb, and executive officer, Commander A. A. Diggens, RN, DSC, headed the group of English officers. Although there are 60 officers aboard the cruiser, all were unable to attend the function. Admiral and Mrs. E. B. Taylor were accompanied by Mrs. E. B. Taylor, the Base Commander's mother, visiting from Ohio. CDR and Mrs. W. E. Simmons attended with Mr. and Mrs. Earl C. Simmons, parents of the Fleet Training Group Operations Officer, who are spending several weeks here. They are from Alaska. Mrs. Mildred W.
