VU-1O Holds Open

House For Middies

Many of the midshipmen who arrived here this week are having the times of their lives when they visit VU-10. Being shown many of the various functions which VU-10 uses in servicing the fleet in this area is just part of the activities offered to the middies. The middies are also being instructed in the use of survival, electronics, aircraft, structure, and maintenance.


LTJG M.A. Ziblich checks out the midshipmen in* the F7F-2D prior to'a hop.
in service type aircraft. Every aircraft in VU-10 is being utilized in giving the middies plane'rides. The middies are taken out on operational hops and receive first hand knowledge on CIC, towing, dive bombing, and torpedo runs.
Another feature which fascinates the majority of the midshipmen is the Drone program. The electronics gear which operates the drones and the idea of pilotless aircraft flying around stimulates the imagination of the middies.
The pilots and the men of VU-10, even though burdened with a heavy flight schedule, welcome the opportunity to give this short indoctrination to the midshipmen, as they feel it will be an added incentive to the young aviation minded men.


Other winner in the tournament were: 1st division -D. Johnson with a 57 lb snapper; J. F. Robson forhis 42 lb. 14 oz. grouper. R. F. Snyder's 25 lb. 6 oz. snapper. A. R.

Watkins' 17 lb. 11 2 oz. barracuda and Sid Davenport with a 15 lb. 4 oz. one. D. E. Seagle and Doris Seagle placing second and third with their 18 lb. 8 oz. and 18 lb. 1 oz. catches respectively.
D.E. Olson of the Fleet Boat Pool placed first with his 20 lb. jack in that division with R. E. Seagle placing second with a 19 lb. 14 oz. jack and Dale Davenport third with a 17 lb. jack. In the ladyfish and bonefish class, R.E. Seagle again came in with a winner with his 4 lb. 6 oz. ladyfish G. M. Ewing placed second and L. E. Hallman, third.

Public Works Chios Base Little Leaguers


by Vic. Gault
This column, which has not been published for a considerable period of time is commencing again as of this number. In previous numbers a weekly article was written in connection with the different Divisions and branches of the Public Works Department, their responsibilities and functions towards the Base as whole. Due to the great innux of new personnel since the above mentioned articles were printed in the "INDIAN" and in orctur to tamiliarize new personnel witn the functions of the department and wnat they may expect, in tne way of service from each o twe (ltiiSlons ania/or branches te tormerly printed articles will be re-written in part. In line with tnis idea, thie irst one to be mentioned this week is the TROUBLEoWviCE CALL FORCE because tu.s one of the branches which as a whole will constantly be at the service of Base residents. This branch, which was recently established and placed under the direct supervision of Mr. James M. Smillie, Quarterman Plumber is a composite of the former Electrical Maintenance Section; the Refrigeration Maintenance Section; the Plumbing Section; the Carpentry Maintenance Section and Paint vlaintenance Section. It also incorporated certain duties of the Metal 'Trades Branch, such as emergency calls. By combining the above sections into one unit, better services can be offered to Base dependents in connection with maintenance and minor repairs of electric ranges, refrigerators, plumbing in quarters, water heaters and minor repairs. As may be expected of all newly established branches in any department, the Trouble-Service Call Force Branch still has much to accomplish in order to offer the expedition s and efficient service intended. However, the few "kinks" now existing are slowly but surely being ironed out and it is expected that in the very near future little will be left to desire. Towards that end and to enable the branch to function efficiently, new personnel have been assigned as telephone dispatchers and are being trained to obtain data in an orderly manner so as to impart same to journeymen having to take care of the emergency, so that they can do so in and expeditious manner without loss of valuable time. CONTACT THE TROUBLE-SERVICE CALL FORCE (telephone Nos. 8424 and 8459) for any emergency in connection with minor household office or shop troubles and we assure you that you will be well taken care of.
Base residents have no doubt noticed considerable activity across from the Navy Exchange Garage. This "ranch style" quonset hut structure will be completed in the near future by Public Works personnel under the supervision of Mr. P. Harris, Quarterman Carpenter, the Job Supervisor, and will be operated by the Navy Exchange as a Motel for transient families.
The many friends of Mr. H. H. Cole, Foreman Transportation of this department will be pleased to know that he is much better and is now at home in a convalescence stage and is able to receive visitors. Mr. Cole became ill on 4 July and had to remain in the Naval Hosptial for a period of time. Fortunately, he is very much better, a fact Which makes all of his friends very gratified.


Complete 1955 Season

Tomorrow Afternoon
The Naval Base Little League winds up a successful 1955 season tomorrow when the Base All Stars play the Caimanera Little League All-Stars. This is the second year that the two all-star teams have met. Last year's three game series was won by the Caimanera team, but this year the table has turned, as the first two games of the three game series were won by the Base Little Leaguers by the scores of 32 and 8-2. Both games were closely contested, even though the last score may indicate different. The third and final game will be played at the Base Little League Diamond on Sherman Avenue at 2 P.M. tomorrow.
The Base Little Leaguers have improved tremendously this past year, as is evident by the brand of ball which they are playing. Experience is the main reason, as one year of playing organized ball means a lot to beginning players. The managing, coaching, and whole hearted support by the parents has also been a big factor in their improvement.
The starting line-up for tomorrow's game as listed by D. E. Dunlap, manager of the team, will be: A. Babine, 1st base, R. Rousso, 2nd base L. Smith, shortstop, J. Duffy, 3rd base, R. Waters, left field, E. Fortenberry, center field, H. Daugherty, right field, D. Te. agle, catcher, and D. Dunlap pitcher.

American Legion Post

Install New Officers
Guantanamo Post No. 1 of the Amerian Legion elected new officers this past week. R. L. (Jack) Yarbro, Quarterman Ordnanceman, was elected Commander. He will be installed in September, succeeding Norval L. Shoop, Chief Quarterman Painter.
Other new officers elected include R. J. Hummel, Vice-Commander; D. C. Wilkinson, Adjutant; E.J. Guillory, DCC, Finance Officer; C. E. Blakeman, Chaplain; A. V. Ward, Historian; H. Huff, ABC, Sargeant at Arms; and H. L. Broughton, H.P. McNeal, and N. L. Shoop, Executive Committee.


Alvin D. Norell, left and David Palmer, right, recently received beneficial suggestions checks for their adopted suggestions. CDR R. A. Williams, Commanding Officer, NSD, center, made the presentations. Norell suggested a gas mask for the protection of personnel working with chlorine and ammonia, and Palmer recommended the installation of a water cooler at the Main Gate.


George J; Palm, FA, of the AFDL-1 took the lead in the shark division in the fishing tournament when he hooked this monster last week. The shark, which weighed 204 pounds, was caught off the AFDL-47.


The Naval Station Exchange does a thriving business luring the Midshipmen cruises. Every counter is packed with midshipmen and fleet sailors looking for that certain souvenir to take back home. Perfume and firearms are the largest selling items. /

FTG Bulletin
A happy~welcome to the world is in order for Hal Craig Pappano. Hal saw the light of day on Sunday the 7th of August. at 11:59 A.M., just when Connie was threatening to disturb the peace"of the whole Base. Hal is CH.AACUand Mrs. Pappano's second . chid and "weighed in' at 5 pounds and 3
ounces. CWO Pappano was not present when his first baby arrived and as a resuit 'iu going through this time without benefit of previous experience. He has asked that he be contacted immediately if anyone can tell him how to get a good nights' sleep.
Onal Williams, YN1, was transferred last week to the Service School Command, Naval Training Center, Bainbridge, Maryland for temporary duty under instruction at the Personnelman Class C-1 School and for further assignment to the Naval Recruiting Station at Little Rock, Arkansas.
LTJG F. M. Hollen of the CIC Department is the Fleet Training Group's explorer. He has become interested in seeing the unusual in Cuba. At present he is exploring caves and is using the caves- of Rio Grosso as his subject. He is interesting to talk to about his hobby, which is more structural than cavernicolous. If anyone desires to be "spelunker", contact LTJG Hollen.
Few persons realize the number of activities that go on among the Fleet Training Group personnel before normal reveille on Sunday morning. As an example, last Sunday LCDR Minard and his pistol team were. practicing arbund. 0630. CAPT Habecker and other equestrians were spotted riding the open range at about that time. A trip to the golf course would have revealed several persons that could barely see the ball and last but not least the fishermen were out as usual. The week-day early ship rides must give these hardy souls insomnia.

VU-10 Holds Open House For Middies Many of the midshipmen who arrived here this week are having the times of their lives when they visit VU-10. Being shown many of the various functions which VU-10 uses in servicing the fleet in this area is just part of the activities offered to the middies. The middies are also being instructed in the use of survival, electronics, aircraft, structure, and maintenance. The highlight of the day for the middies, especially for those who have never flown before, is the ride LTJG M. A. Ziblich checks out the midshipmen in the F7F-2D prior to a hop. in service type aircraft. Every aircraft in VU-10 is being utilized in giving the middies plane rides. The middies are taken out on operational hops and receive first hand knowledge on CIC, towing, dive bombing, and torpedo runs. Another feature which fascinates the majority of the midshipmen is the Drone program. The electronics gear which operates the drones and the idea of pilotless aircraft flying around stimulates the imagination of the middies. The pilots and the men of VU-10, even though burdened with a heavy flight schedule, welcome the opportunity to give this short indoctrination to the midshipmen, as they feel it will be an added incentive to the young aviation minded men. Other winner in the tournament were: 1st division -D. Johnson with a 57 lb snapper; J. F. Robson for his 42 lb. 14 oz. grouper. R. F. Snyder's 25 lb. 6/z oz. snapper. A. R.

ya A st 1955 Public Works Chips by Vic. Gault This column, which has not been published for a considerable period of time is commencing again as of this number. In previous numbers a weekly article was written in connection with the different Divisions and branches of the Public Works Department, their responsibilities and functions towards the Base as whole. Due to the great innux of new personnel since the above mentioned articles were printed n the "INDIAiN" and in order to familiarize new personnel wiut the functions of the department and wnat they may expect, in toe way of service from each or toe uiisions anal/or branches t.e formerly printed articles will be re-written in part. In line with tnis idea, toe first one to be mentionued this week is the TROUBLEwsnviCE CALL FORCE because i;ns one of the branches which as a whole will constantly be at the service of Base residents. This branch, which was recently established and placed under the direct supervision of Mr. James M. Smilhe, Quarterman Plumber is a composite of the former Electrical iviaintenance Section; the Refrigeration Maintenance Section; the Plumbing Section; the Carpentry Iiaintenance Section and Paint maintenance Section. It also incorporated certain duties of the Metal 'Trades Branch, such as emergency calls. By combining the above sections into one unit, better services can be offered to Base dependents in connection with maintenance and minor repairs of electric ranges, refrigerators, plumbing in quarters, water heaters and minor repairs. As may be expected of all newly established branches in any department, the Trouble-Service Call Force Branch still has much to accomplish in order to offer the expeditious and efficient service intended. However, the few "kinks" now existing are slowly but surely being ironed out and it is expected that in the very near future little will be left to desire. Towards that end and to enable the branch to function efficiently, new personnel have been assigned as telephone dispatchers and are being trained to obtain data in an orderly manner so as to impart same to journeymen having to take care of the emergency, so that they can do so in and expeditious manner without loss of valuable time. CONTACT THE TROUBLE-SERVICE CALL FORCE (Telephone Nos. 8424 and 8459) for any emergency in connection with minor household office or shop troubles and we assure you that you will be well taken care of. Base residents have no doubt noticed considerable activity across from the Navy Exchange Garage. This "ranch style" quonset hut structure will be completed in the near future by Public Works personnel under the supervision of Mr. P. Harris, Quarterman Carpenter, the Job Supervisor, and will be operated by the Navy Exchange as a Motel for transient families. The many friends of Mr. H. H. Cole, Foreman Transportation of this department will be pleased to know that he is much better and is now at home in a convalescence stage and is able to receive visitors. Mr. Cole became ill on 4 July and had to remain in the Naval Hosptial for a period of time. Fortunately, he is very much better, a fact which makes all of his friends very gratified. Base Little Leaguers Complete 1955 Season Tomorrow Afternoon The Naval Base Little League winds up a successful 1955 season tomorrow when the Base All Stars play the Caimanera Little League All-Stars. This is the second year that the two all-star teams have met. Last year's three game series was won by the Caimanera team, but this year the table has turned, as the first two games of the three game series were won by the Base Little Leaguers by the scores of 32 and 8-2. Both games were closely contested, even though the last score may indicate different. The third and final game will be played at the Base Little League Diamond on Sherman Avenue at 2 P.M. tomorrow. The Base Little Leaguers have improved tremendously this past year, as is evident by the brand of ball which they are playing. Experience is the main reason, as one year of playing organized ball means a lot to beginning players. The managing, coaching, and whole hearted support by the parents has also been a big factor in their improvement. The starting line-up for tomorrow's game as listed by D. E. Dunlap, manager of the team, will be: A. Babine, 1st base, R. Rousso, 2nd base L. Smith, shortstop, J. Duffy, 3rd base, R. Waters, left field, E. Fortenberry, center field, H. Daugherty, right field, D. Teagle, catcher, and D. Dunlap pitcher. American Legion Post Install New Officers Guantanamo Post No. 1 of the American Legion elected new officers this past week. R. L. (Jack) Yarbro, Quarterman Ordnanceman, was elected Commander. He will be installed in September, succeeding Norval L. Shoop, Chief Quarterman Painter. Other new officers elected include R. J. Hummel, Vice-Commander; D. C. Wilkinson, Adjutant; E. J. Guillory, DCC, Finance Officer; C. E. Blakeman, Chaplain; A. V. Ward, Historian; H. Huff, ABC, Sargeant at Arms; and H. L. Broughton, H. P. McNeal, and N. L. Shoop, Executive Committee. Alvin D. Norell, left and David Palmer, right, recently received beneficial suggestions checks for their adopted suggestions. CDR R. A. Williams, Commanding Officer, NSD, center, made the presentations. Norell suggested a gas mask for the protection of personnel working with chlorine and ammonia, and Palmer recommended the installation of a water cooler at the Main Gate. George J. Paln, FA, of the AFDL-1 took the lead in the shark division in the fishing tournament when he hooked this monster last week. The shark, which weighed 204 pounds, was caught off the AFDL-47. The Naval Station Exchange does a thriving business during the Midshipmen cruises. Every counter is packed with midshipmen and fleet sailors looking for that certain souvenir to take back home. Perfume and firearms are the largt3t selling items. 9 4 Base Golf Championship This week's round of play in the 1955 Guantanamo Bay Men's Golf Championship matches saw some good matches as the field narrowed down to the four semi-finalists in each flight. In the championship flight, Rogers (NAS) eliminated Richards (VU-10) 7-5 while in the same bracket Adams (N.S.) trounced Kidwell (NAS) 8-7. In the lower half of the championship flight, Peddycord (VU-10) dropped LCDR Dempsey (N.S.) from contention with a 1 hole victory while Doulin (VU-10) won over Gurka (NAS) 2 up.

The woman who henpecks her husband is likely to find him listening to some other chicken. The Fish Tale(s) by P. G. Aldridge So I duck Connie, whiz by Diane and hurry back from Miami to find my beautiful 14 pound Snook lookin' like a minnow in the tournament standin's! One day to go before deadline at midnight Monday last, so I grabbed my rod n' reel, beat it down to the Sailboat Locker, hopped into a boat and bagged for the Gtmo River. Tralloed like life or death for a hotter than boilin' oil nine or ten hours and not so much as a snag to break the monotony. There went my cravin' to win one of them dan dan dandy salt water spinnin' rigs right out the cotton pickin' winder, unless they got one of 'em left over after all the lucky winners get theirs and some generous soul gets the idea of tossing it away to a beat up, but loyal, columnist who can still taste the wishin' for that rig and didn't lose out on account of not tryin'. Not a nibble did we get, I tell ya and, wouldn't ya know it, next day a mess of folks went to the same cotton pickin' way, used the same goldurned gear as we'uns and came home with eight beauties and a'tellin' of losin' four more! Somebody even snagged a tarpon that night in the mouth of the Gtmo and all we even saw was one of them giant turtles a'playin' like a submarine and a'scarin' the fool out of us the first time it rared to the surface and stuck that ugly head out'n the wate r. Them amphibious (educated type word) monsters is up to the river and along all the beaches now a'lookin' for places in the warm sand to dig holes and lay their eggs which they do a few million by the thousands. Nancy Greenfield speared one while diving the last few months back and tells us that them turtle steaks dipped in egg and rolled in cracker crumbs is right succulent eatin'. Lots of folks like barracuda for chow, too, but those fightin' tarpon is just for the sportin'. A lot of you who, like me, did a lot of tryin' but didn't make out in this recent contest may be keenly interested in a right smart idea Ron Seagle down to the sailboat locker has come up with. If'n enough of you folks take to it and take the trouble to let him know it by callin' 9545, Ron may be able to get a runnin' tournament goin'. It would work somethin' like this; first of every month the folks who want to be eligible will pay an entrance fee of one buck before he ever goes out anglin' or divin'. There would be about seven classes of fish so the entry fees would be divided in seven equal parts for seven first prizes for each one of the seven biggest catchs said prizes to be awarded when the winners were judged on the last day of any month. How about that? Of course ya would just be out a buck if'n ya didn't catch the grandee but, wha' the heck, it'd be a consarned lot of fun and an incentive to shoot the moon. So, if'n you go for this sharp idea of Ron's let the boy in on the scoop by makin' like a conversationalist on the telephone and dialin' the sailboat locker 9545. If'n ya get the busy noise don't give it up. That's a lot of other guys just as keen on it as you are and a'gettin' their two cents in, too. If ya don't call we won't know and there won't be no runnin' contests so do it right now before your cotton pickin' mind gets all involved with what your wife is remindin' ya didn't do yesterday. FTG Bulletin A happy welcome to the world is in order for Hal Craig Pappano. Hal saw the light of day on Sunday the 7th of August at 11:59 A.M., just when Connie was threatening to disturb the peace of the whole Base.

At present he is exploring caves and is using the caves of Rio Grosso as his subject. He is interesting to talk to about his hobby, which is more structural than cavernicolous. If anyone desires to be "spelunker", contact LTJG Hollen. Few persons realize the number of activities that go on among the Fleet Training Group personnel before normal reveille on Sunday morning. As an example, last Sunday LCDR Minard and his pistol team were practicing around 0630. CAPT Habecker and other equestrians were spotted riding the open range at about that time. A trip to the golf course would have revealed several persons that could barely see the ball and last but not least the fishermen were out as usual. The week-day early ship rides must give these hardy souls insomnia. THE UDU WILL GET YOU, IF YOU DON'T WATCH OUT.
