Will Visit Base

Governor George M. Leader of Pennsylvania and a party of state and military officials will arrive here April 24, to view operations of the USS RANDOLPH.
According to NEWSWEEK magazine Gov. Leader, "is the second youngest governor in Pennsylvania history and one of the hottest properties in the Democratic Party."
Gov. Leader and his party will be on the Base until April 26, and then will proceed to Port Au Prince, Haiti.
Some of the members of the governor's party include: David V. Randall, the governor's secretary; Maj. Gen A.J. Drexel Biddle Jr., Adjutant General of the State of Pennsylvania; Maj. Gen. M. G. Baker, USA (Ret) Superintendent of the Valley Forge Military Academy; Brig. Gen. J. Harry La Brum, Chairman of the Board of the Chamber of Commerce, Philadelphia, and RADM E.

Villamar Swimming Pool Slated

For Completion By Mid Summer

A new Naval Station swimming pool is to be built on the high ground in the Trading Post picnic area. The pool will be available to all Base families and will be built by Public Works. Naval Station recreation fund will finance the new pool which should be completed by late summer.
Public Works has announced that filtration and recirculation equipment is now under procurement and delivery of it will be in approximately 90 days. The department is now taking bids on the equipment to determine the supply contractor.


The new pool will be 100 feet long and 30 feet wide. It will have a maximum water depth of ten feet and a minimum depth of two feet, ten inches.
Membership Basis
Recently, the Villamar - Bargo community council voted to recommend that the pool be operated on a membership basis in a similar manner to the golf course. A small amount of dues would be set for each family planning to use the pool. This would allow it to remain open later hours.
The new pool will enable families on the Base to have a pool of their own. The fleet pool will then be mainly for the use of single enlisted men.
Payment for the bathhouse to be constructed near the pool will come out of the Community fund. It is hoped to eventually have a Navy Exchange snack shop in the new pool area.
Bathhouse Built Before Pool
The bathhouse will be built prior to pool construction. Public Works estimates that work will begin within a month on the bathhouse phase.
After the pool opens, a life guard will be on constant duty during the daily open hours of the pool. And, in order to provide for the security of small children after closing hours, a fence will be built surrounding the pool proper.

Higher Temps In Store

For Gtmo Next Week

The Naval Air Station Aerology office has announced that next week's weather around Guantanamo Bay will center on higher temperatures and higher humidity.
The Aerology Office also added that there will be an increasing possibility of thundershowers over the Base in late afternoons.


Judging of entries for the
essay contest "Why the U.S.
Needs a Navy," has been postponed one week. Results of the contest will appear in the April 21 issue of the

Your Vote Is The 1956 Ballot!


More, perhaps, than any other .man, Thomas Jefferson has formed and molded the American mind and spirit. Remembered best as a great president and author of the Declaration of Independence, he won fame as a statesman and diplomat.
He held that all men were created equal, and did more than any man of his time to bring about equality among men in America. He held too that men make government, and helped to develop the machinery through which men could actually have a share, not only in setting up their government, but in controlling it.

Jefferson believed one of the greatest duties a citizen has in a democracy is to take part in the work of government by voting . . that voting is an obligation as paramount as that of obeying laws or paying taxes.
This year, U. S. citizens through-


1.


out the world will act again in Jefferson's philosophy that governments derive their powers from the consent of the governed.
Do your part . . . VOTE in 1956! (AFPS)

The Chalain's Corner


"CAN YOU HEAR"
On one occasion Jesus turned to the group surrounding him and said, "he that hath ears to hear, let him hear." What a wonderful thing to be able to hear. Most of us are equipped with two good ears. How poor is the man who has never possessed or who has lost the sense of hearing. With these ears we hear the music of the songbirds. With these ears we heard the applause of a listening senate as the great English statesman, Winston Churchill, pledged that the two great English speaking Nations would march on together until tyranny had been utterly destroyed.

As we thought of the subject the other day, we decided to read up on the construction of this very important organ, the ear. We confess that we read in awe before we had finished the subject. What a wonderful and complicated thing is the ear. This appendix which we call the car is only an insignificant part of the apparatus for hearing. It merely collects the ,stimuli and directs them into the proper channels. They take care of the acoustic vibrations.
As we think of the words of our Lord, do we not feel that He was thinking of something more important than just the sense of hearing. He was probably thinking of those voices which speak from a deeper level. The Negro spiritual expresses it in these words. "Hush! Somebody's calling my name." Are we able to hear these voices which speak to us from a deeper level?
We would mention first, the voice from within. There is something within each of us which says OUGHT and MUST. It says this is the way, walk in it. Matthew Arnold expressed the thought in these words, "'here is a power within, not ourselves, that works for righteousness." Yes, the voice is there. You know it and I know it. Are we able to hear our conscience speak to us?
Then there is the voice from without. In the world in which we live we are all members one of another. No man liveth unto himself. One suffers, all suffer. Whether we like it or not we must be able to learn the high art of living together. We must be able to hear the still, sad music of humanity.
Finally, there is the voice from above. He that gave man the power of speech, shall He not speak in tones which all can understand?
The voice supreme is the voice of eternal God. He is here, He is there, He is everywhere; waiting to speak to anyone who has ears to hear. Be still, until you can hear the voice from within, the voice without and the voice from above.

Please express to all concerned my sincere appreciation for the highly successful demonstrations recently held for members of Congress and the press group. All planning and arrangements for the i handling of these important groups and the skillful execution of the demonstration of our navy's new weapons systems were outstanding in all respects.
While these operations imposed an additional burden on an already heavy schedule, I believe results in public understanding and support fully justified effort expended. I

The winning boy must have outstanding C o u r a g e, Leadership, Honor, Scholarship, and Service.
The American Legion School Award Program is designed to encourage students to make a conscious effort to develop the personal qualities specified above.
The award will be made annually in the Naval Base School, and each winner will receive a handsome bronze medal. In addition, his name will be engraved on a plaque hung at the school.
Presentation of this year's awards will be made at the gradnation exercises.


Yard Of Month


R.D. Groeneveld, mayor of ViIlamar/Bargo, presents a $10 award to L. F. Biondo, RMC, for the Yard of the Month.
The landscaping in Chief Biondo's yard consists of avocados, gardenias, hybred hybiscus and many other plants and flowers. He has acquired many of his plants from the nursery and also as a result of his own efforts by clippings, etc.


A colorful humanitarian career that began in 1942, is drawing to a close when, in May of this year, Mrs. Helen K. Bowler, incumbent American Red Cross assistant field director and accredited representative to ComNavBase, Gtmo, resigns. She has spent 14 years of unbroken service with the Red Cross.
Originally from South Dakota, Mrs. Bowler moved to Chicago, Illinois, the place which she now calls her home. An alumna of Northwestern university, she holds a Bachelor of Arts degree. After graduation she taught for sometime at Park Ridge public school in the suburbs of Chicago.
The outburst of World War II completely revolutionized her plans of just being a plan school teacher. Seized with a punching sense of patriotism and swept by a personal enthusiasm to serve her country in a time of crisis, Mrs.


Volunteers May Apply

For Diver's School
Commander Naval Base, in a NavBase Gtmo Notice, has disclosed that a six-week course of instruction for Second Class Divers will convene on April 27, 1956, at YFNB-17, in Norfolk, Virginia.
The note calls for volunteers only. Interested Base personnel may submit through their respective command, a request for the school. Upon receipt of the request, physical examination, in accordance with BuMed requirements, will be conducted in order to determine the physical fitness of the applicant.


Crowd Likes Hillbilly

Show At Lyceum

A lively and galloping hillbilly show of rythyms and crackerjokes was on stage Monday evening, April 9, at the Naval Station lyceum before a capacity crowd.
Hillbilly maestro Melvin Price, backed up by his Santa Fe Rangers, opened the show with a crack!
The show, with a running time of 85 minutes, went on with alternated music and jokes.
The distaff side of the hillbilly aggregation was represented by two lovely, young ladies. The Rangers, toured all the U.S. Armed Services stations in the Caribbean, Guantanamo Bay being the last.


Bowler resigned her teaching job and joined the ARC Night Motor Corps of Chicago in May, 1942, first as a driver and later as head of the Corps.
Went Overseas in 1943
In May of 1943, the ARC billetted her for overseas duty. From that time to the present, Mrs. Bowler has remained outside the continental limits of the United States except for her one year tour at the Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, before coming to Guantanamo-Bay, in January, 1952.
Mrs. Bowler is perhaps one of the most travelled ARC workers, having been to 44 countries, crossed both oceans three times and made a trip around the world once. Upon her transfer from Japan in 1950, Mrs. Bowler and a friend, on a five months tour of their own, visited 23 countries of the Far and Middle East and Europe while enroute to New York.
Besides being a well-travelled woman, Mrs. Bowler also carries an impressive hospital war record that very few women have ever achieved. Having 29 months of combat hospital service during WWII with advance hospital units deployed within the orbit of a shooting front, Mrs. Bowler participated in the Sicilian campaign, the battle of the Bulge and in the bombing of Naples. During these darkest hours, she took care, comforted and consoled the hospitalized Americans.
Served in the Far. East
After the war and until 1950, she found the Far East her serving ground. First she was stationed in Manila with AUS Philippine Scouts. Then she went to Okinawa for a tour of duty with a Navy hospital outfit. In 1947, she was sent to Nagoya, Japan for service with the 5th Air Force headquarters.
During her tour of duty with the various Armed Services of the United States in the Far East,


she made authorized trips to its different regions where she made observations and personal studies on the customs and traditions and culture of the places she visited.
She wrote her observations in pamphlet form for the Red Cross Headquarters which was later used as guide material for the American servicemen in U.S. occupied territories in the Far East.
Came to Gtmo in 1952
During her stay in Gtmo from January, 1952, to the present, her official duties involved recreation, social services and emergency leave verifications for both forces, ashore and afloat. At the Base hospital where she is closely associated, she's made verifications of health and welfare reports on patients for stateside chapters of the Red Cross where inquiries regarding their conditions are filed by service families.
She has also organized First Aid classes, swimming and water safety courses. Aside from the bulk of cable work that she's handled, Mrs. Bowler, along with volunteers, has also featured regular "coffee hours" for the patients in the hospital.
The indefatigable Mrs. Bowler who has worked incessantly, 24 hours a day, on call seven days a week, through a period of a little over four years to service personnel and military dependents, has no iota of complaint. "I have enjoyed my stay in Guantanamo very much," said Mrs. Bowler, "and I. regret leaving a place like this where people are perfectly cooperative in every detail." Mrs. Bowler will depart sometime in May and will proceed to her Chicago home.

A canine's delight is in chasing a
cat,
Or, at least, that's the popular
notion.
Do dogfish, I wonder, put catfish
to rout,
When they meet in the depths of
the ocean?

It seems we have a celebrity in our barracks, a decendant of "KING FAROUK". A question came up, "what is the great ham mystery?" It seems Shorty was handing out Bum Scoop to the new troops. Huffman, bow did you sprain your ankle? Lapp, I hear you are teaching Kania, how to play pool.

Down through history Marines have been called any number of names. Some good and some bad and some that have stuck with us. Some have been forgotten, but the name that means the most to us has stuck for nearly 40 years. This name is the "DEVIL DOGS". We won that name in France WORLD WAR I.
The Marines held, counter-attacked, and defeated the German Army to such an extent they called us inhuman and dogs of the Devil or "DEVIL DOGS". Today Marines are still tagged Devil dogs and it is a tag we wear and uphold with pride.

What's Doin' Stateside
Orange peels may be the answer to an old nemesis-the common cold. . . . Bioflavonoid is the antidote. It's a chemical extracted from the orange and lemon peels left over by the juice freezers and other processors of citrus fruit.... The market for bioflavonoid has jumped from 5,000 pounds a year to 150,000 pounds. . . . Sales volume is now estimated at $1,800,000 a year against $60,000 two years ago.

Science is trying to make a monkey out of Darwin. A Swiss scientist, Dr. Johannes Hurzeler, claims that jawbone and other fossil remains found in Tuscany, Italy, in 1872 are from 10-millionyear - old human - like creatures. Darwin's theory states that man and the apes descended from a comparatively recent common ancestry. . . . But Dr. Huxzeler says that man and the apes branched apart 20 to 30 million years ago from an ancestor that was neither man nor ape.

A crop reduction has been forecast for 1956. The Department of Agriculture has announced that corn crops will be about 184 mil.lion bushels less than the 3,184,836,000 produced last year ... Also the prospective spring wheat crop would be about 44 million bushels less than last year's 232,787,000.

Tennis Is Becoming

Popular Gtmo Sport

Sidney Durant, in charge of the Athletic Gear Issue desk at the Fleet Recreation center has disclosed that in the local world of sports, "Tennis has of late become a booming and flourishing game, especially among the teenagers."
This disclosure was strengthened when an INDIAN staff member walked in at the Navy Exchange Sports shop and was told that a large shipment of tennis balls and tennis rackets has been received by the shop.
"For the past three weeks," the sports shop salesman said, "this store has been flooded with orders for tennis balls and tennis rackets. With this shipment on hand, we are now ready to serve them," he concluded.

The Fish Tale(s)

by Pat Aldridge
Candid conversation with a number of skin divers this past week has resulted in what may be the answer to why the rodn' reelers haven't been having much luck for several months. Little more than a year ago it was not at all unusual to spot large schools of big jack and literally dozens of Barracuda, Grouper and Snapper, all big fellows, too.
Gradually, they seemed to disappear from these waters with only a stray seen now and then in recent months and none of the fabulous catches of past years being announced. Skin divers who have been around for several years tell us that the waters were once abounding in fish of all variety but, now, it is almost a rarity for a spear fisherman to see, much less spear a creature of any size. And why have the fish disappeared?
The divers themselves will tell you that it's all the skin divers' fault. Where they haven't fished the area out they've caused the wary fish to flee to deeper waters beyond the reach of those alien creatures in the deep. Only in the fresh water river do you see fish in any number and the divers haven't pestered the river because the waters are too murky for successful spearing.
Too bad some kind of control cannot be put into effect such as is exercised in regard to Langusta. If the 'Gusta boys weren't forced to lay off a couple of months of the year there would soon be no more of the Caribbean lobsters to be had at any time.
Spear fisherman Jerry Dickson of the Air Station seems to have an affinity for hazardous adventure down among the coral. It wasn't too long ago that Jerry and Walt Holloway were diving between Windmill and Kitterey when a six foot Moray eel decided that Jerry was just the right size for biting so he, the eel, took a healthy snap missing Dickson by an uncomfortable margin.
It was two spears and a sharp knife later that the thirty five pound sea snake ended up on the
beach well dead. Who the heck says if you leave them alone they'll leave you alone? Glen Abbott well remembers the day of the unshy shark.
Glen thought like many a Shark


The Chiefs made a total of 2,440 pins to 2,208 made by VA-176. Rescue, for the Chiefs was high series with 506 and Griffen was highest for VA-176 with a high 519.
S.....,.....




L















and 'Cuda this f ellow was just curious but he was curious awful close so Glen decided to scramble out and into a waiting boat. Wha' Haa-ppen ?
The Shark must have decided that Glen looked real delicious for he came right alongside and Glen ended up giving sir Shark several sound kicks to the side of the head as he vaulted into the boat. No, not a little Shark. Bigger than you or me.
It was just a couple years back that Dickson and Abbott went spearing together off Leeward Point when a small submarine nosed in to take a closer look. The small sub turned out to be a seven foot Barracuda and, -when he opened his mouth to betray the Holland Tunnel with teeth, the boys hit out for a small coral reef and protection near by.
Mr. 'Cuda continued to stick around while the men stuck to standing on the tiny coral piece and Glen nursed a cut le g. How did that adventure end? From coral atoll to coral atoll twenty feet or more apart the boys finally got back to shore but swear they don't remember touching water any of the way and they were a far piece out.
In cAse anyone is interested, a huge aew Fish has taken up abode around Phillips Park. He looks to be about four hundred pounds of good eating and that information isn't going to disc(,arage the skin divers any!

Music News And Views

by "Woody" Howard
During the latter part of last summer, record- companies thought the rock and roll idiom was destined to fade. Confident of the end of that current trend, the major record companies were geared to revive a flock of oldies popular "way back when". It was announced that Georgia Gibbs would record no more rhythm tunes, despite her current success with her two million sellers "Tweedle fDee" and "Dance With Me, Henry".

Miss Gibbs was next heard on wax with a cha-cha ditty entitled "Sweet and Gentle" but was forced to take a back seat when Alan Dale's etching of the same tune bit pay dirt. Georgia then recorded a rhythm side, "24 Hours A Day" coupled with the poignant Italian hit, "Goodbye To Rome".
Both sides enjoyed only moderate success. As rock and roll continues to loom even bigger on the musical horizon, she has hopped back on the bandwagon with her current disking. The top side features Miss Gibbs with a bluesy, sentimental vehicle entiled "The Greatest Thing". On the bottom deck, however, is "Rock Right", strictly tailored for the coke set.
The McGuire Sisters recently recorded an album called "Do You Remember When". I'm sure that none of the girls remember that far back as the 12 tunes include such songs as "June Night", "Tip Toe Through The Tulips" and others popular in the courtin' days of Mother and Dad.
Teresa Brewer has "A Tear Fell' coupled with a southern blues entitled "Bo Weevil". From the flick, "The Las Vegas Story", the Four Aces have culled two tunes"If You Can Dream" and "The Gal With The Yallar Shoes". The Cheers, two guys and a gal who socked across "Black Denim Trousers" a few months back, have a highly controversial item in "Chicken" which relates the story of a death game race teenagers play with automobiles. (Somewhat like the one shown in "Rebel Without A Cause".
Some radio stations have already banned the tune but the fact that the majority of -pop records are bought by teenagers will cause dealers to stock it in quantities.
Other new sides include Frank Sinatra's "Flowers Mean Forgiveness', Perry Como's "Juke Box Baby", Dean Martin's "Innamorata", McGuire Sisters' "Missing", Jaye P. Morgan's "Get Up! Get Up!," Fontane Sisters' "Eddie, My Love", Tennessee Ernie's "That's All", Nat "King" Cole's "Too Young To Go Steady", Gale Storm's "Why Do Fools Fall In Love?"-to mention a few.

SPORTS REVIEW

by Joe Duffy
A streamlined Naval Base Baseball League will open its 1956 season on Monday night at the Fleet Recreation baseball diamond. All games are scheduled for 1900 under the arc lights on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and at 1430 on Sunday afternoon. The Fleet Recreation diamond will be used for all games unless fleet requirements interfere, if that occurs, the league may shift some games to the Marine field.
The Monday night opener will pit the Naval Air Station Flyers against the Marine Leathernecks in what should be a close contest. This year the league wiil have four clubs instead of the six of previous seasons. Besides the two teams in the opener the other clubs come from Naval Station and VU-10. The two missing contestants are the Seabees and Staff, however, MCB-1 will field a team for the first two weeks and be part of the schedule even though the games will not count in the league st,.ndings. '1he Staff club will also be playing, but this time as part of Naval Station in a combined organization to be known as Naval Base Composite.
This reorganization of the league not only strengthened a weak Naval Station club, it also served to firm up a four-team league with the power equally distributed, and presents a more competitive picture for the baseball race.
On the basis of their pre-season performane--, the Flyers and Marines look to be the best on the field. The Flyers have the pitching in Gustafson and McCalmont, and the league's best catcher in Ed Tanzi who is playing his second season for NAS.
The Marines lineup is packed with heavy hitters, but the pitching is questionable, in about the same degree as the Flyer's hitting strength. 'I he Marines have a couple c f solid smashers returned from last season's club in irst baseman Chuck Hunter and shortstop Castellow. Pitcherinfielder jack Dowd, third baseman Collins and catcher Steve Kavolic also return along with Mike Sivilli who played his first game in the softball season. rihis club should be hard to beat, but if the Flyers are as good on the field as they are on paper they should win their share of the series. Lc uday's night contest should throw a lot of light on the subject.

The Schedule


Monday
Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Sunday


NAS vs Marines VU-10 vs MCB-1 Naval Base vs NAS Marines vs VU-10 VU-10 vs NAS


The Spotlight
The Naval Air Station held a Sportsmen banquet last Monday night in the EM Club Palm Room. Individual trophies were awarded to members of the Golf team who captured low net and low gross titles in the intercommand golf tournament, and to the basketball squad who finished in first place in the intercommand basketball competition. The Leeward Point cagers were also honored for winning the annual sportsmenship award. . . . The Flyers starting lineup for the baseball opener will have Waldrop at first base, Pearson at second, Williams on third, and Schaffer at short. In the outfield will be Whitaker, Rhodes, Ransom or Jette, and the battery will consist of Gustafson on the mound and Tanzi behind the plate. It will be strange to watch Bob Eells in a Naval Station uniform this year after having seen him perform for the VU-10 Mallards last season. In the nip and tuck 1955 pennant race the Mallards and Indians battled toe to toe down to the finish, and it was Eells who figured so highly in the Mallards wins. . . Emphasis will be stressed on the forming of a solid All-Star squad this year for competing in the southeastern All-Navy finals held at Pensacola each year.
The team will be known as Guantanamo :Navy in the tournament, and the word from the press box is that we expect to go all navy this time. . . . Be around next week with the Scorebook.

The Goat tournament ends this week. Everyone is checking on the outcome of each match, but so far it is impossible to even guess who the winner will be. At this writing Lavaria Butler leads the First and Second flight with Chris Whitton and Marian Caruthers tied for a close second place.
Millie Kuba tops the third flight, but Margaret Wall is only one goat behind her. Hope all of you have an extra good game during your match this week and hope that Friday, April 13 shows you the lucky winner.


In Preseason Game

The NAS Flyers lost to the VU-10 Mallards in a practice baseball game by a score of 6 to 5.
McCalmont started on the mound for the Flyers and Tanzi was behind the plate.
The NAS team began a rampage in the first three innings of play when Rhodes hit a double, McCalmont walked and Tanzi bunted. With the bases loaded Waldrop flied to left and Rhodes scored after the tag up.
In the second Vokish walked and again Rhodeos doubled bringing Vokish home.
The Mallards ,under the pitching of Montgomery, turned loose in the 5th when Swartz, a pinchhitter, started the drive. This was the fatal inning for the NAS nine and
6 runs were scored.
In the last two innings a switch by the Flyers, of Vokish to the pitcher's mound and Ramson to the catching spot, halted the Mallards onrush.

Navy-DPP0-10ND--Gto..441


Cinema - Scoop

by D.D.H.
I hear that Leeward Point is to have a new lyceum hope that all the jet jockies and airdales enjoy it.
News on Cinemascope also! The ball is rolling very slowly, but it is rolling. Plans and steps to be taken are being discussed, here's hoping that Gtmo will have the wide screen soon! DO NOT TAKE THIS STATEMENT AS GROUNDS TO START MAKING PHONE CALLS AND INQUIRIES! The plans are underway and as soon as definite information is obtained it will appear in the INDIAN!
The Prisoner (Col.), has some of the finest acting seen in a long time here at Gtmo, but will not be too well received by the general public. The picture stars Alec Guinness and Jack Hawkins and is based no doubt on the Cardinal Mindszenty trial, for it concerns a Catholic priest who has been captured by the Reds. It is a tense and exciting game of cat and mouse that Guinness (as the priest) and Hawkins (as his captor) play throughout the film. Adult entertainment and it cops the best of the week spot with its great acting and excellent direction!
I Died a Thousand Times (W.B., in color), is a good remake of an old Bogart film "High Sierra." It stars Jack Palance, Shelley Winters and Lori Nelson.
King Dinasour (Lippert) . . . Bill Bryant and Wanda Curtin science-fiction . . . So - So, with a UH!
Houston Story (Col) . . . Gene Barry and Barbara Hale . . . crime in the Texas oil fields . . . fair. World In My Corner (U.I.) . . . Audie Murphy and Barbara Rush ... boxing . . . fair. At Gunpoint (A.A.), is one of
the best westerns to come to Gtmo in quite a spell. The original color has been taken from the film and proves a drawback. It stars Fred MacMurray, Dorothy Malone and Walter Brennan. It is an off-beat flick and instead of the hero being a crack shot, he is a storekeeper who hardly knows one end from the other, the gun I mean! Plenty of action adds up to a good movie!
Lawless Street (Col., in color)
. Randy Scott and Angela Lansbury . . . watch out, here he comes again . . . BANG!

For would-be writers, "THE Writer's Book," edited by Helen Hull, should come in handy. It's a collection of short essays by the leading literary lights of this age, in which they divulge the secrets of the craft.
Back to biography again. In "THREE LOVES OF DOSTOEVSKY" Marc Slonim tells us something about the three women who provided the inspiration behind the fabulous writing career of the great Russian novelist. If you enjoy books about writers which provide an insight into their technique, this one is just the thing.
Theodore Maynard tells, the tragic tale of ill-starred, muchmaligned Mary I of England in his latest biography "BLOODY MARY." It's about time somebody wrote a fair, readable book about this "big bad witch" of English history.
Pierre LaMure, a novelist who likes to write books with music and art backgrounds, has come up with "BEYOND DESIRE." This time the subject is Felix Mendelssohn and his wife Cecile. What makes the book look especially interesting is the galaxy of famous people of the nineteenth century who squeeze into the story. Everyone from Queen Victoria to Lola Montez gets a hearing. But Mendelssohn the Musician is the central character, and music is the binding thread of the book.

The FY '56 housing program, according to the Resident Office, consists of two married officers quarters (MOQ) and 24 married enlisted men's quarters (MEMQ). This project, it was disclosed, will be. constructed by contract in the near future. Ferry Service Between Fla., Villamar Swimming Pool Slated For Completion By Mid Summer A new Naval Station swimming pool is to be built on the high ground in the Trading Post picnic area. The pool will be available to all Base families and will be built by Public Works. Naval Station recreation fund will finance the new pool which should be completed by late summer. Public Works has announced that filtration and recirculation equipment is now under procurement and delivery of it will be in approximately 90 days. The department is now taking bids on the equipment to determine the supply contractor. Out of the 1,098 Base enlisted personnel in the different pay grades that took the February Navy-wide examinations, 596 passed, 477 failed and 66 went to the "quota" mothball. These figures were released by the Personnel Offices in Gtmo this past week. Among the successful, 76 made chief, 57 captured first class, 115 hit the second class grade and 351 made third. Mobile Construction Battalion One (MCB-1) chalked up the greatest number of new petty officers with 170. Advancement in rate for the new petty officers will take effect this month instead of next month as was originally scheduled. The Chief Petty Officer's effective date of advancement will be handled separately by the Bureau of Naval Personnel. Pa. Gov. Leader Will Visit Base Governor George M. Leader of Pennsylvania and a party of state and military officials will arrive here April 24, to view operations of the USS RANDOLPH. According to NEWSWEEK magazine Gov. Leader, "is the second youngest governor in Pennsylvania history and one of the hottest properties in the Democratic Party." Gov. Leader and his party will be on the Base until April 26, and then will proceed to Port Au Prince, Haiti. Some of the members of the governor's party include: David V. Randall, the governor's secretary; Maj. Gen A. J. Drexel Biddle Jr., Adjutant General of the State of Pennsylvania; Maj. Gen. M. G. Baker, USA (Ret) Superintendent of the Valley Forge Military Academy; Brig. Gen. J. Harry La Brum, Chairman of the Board of the Chamber of Commerce, Philadelphia, and RADM E. H. von Heimberg, ComFour. Capt. Stagner Presents Check To Adm Cooper The new pool will be 100 feet long and 30 feet wide. It will have a maximum water depth of ten feet and a minimum depth of two feet, ten inches. Membership Basis Recently, the Villamar -Bargo community council voted to recommend that the pool be operated on a membership basis in a similar manner to the golf course. A small amount of dues would be set for each family planning to use the pool. This would allow it to remain open later hours. The new pool will enable families on the Base to have a pool of their own. The fleet pool will then be mainly for the use of single enlisted men. Payment for the bathhouse to be constructed near the pool will come out of the Community fund. It is hoped to eventually have a Navy Exchange snack shop in the new pool area. Bathhouse Built Before Pool The bathhouse will be built prior to pool construction. Public Works estimates that work will begin within a month on the bathhouse phase. After the pool opens, a life guard will be on constant duty during the daily open hours of the pool. And, in order to provide for the security of small children after closing hours, a fence will be built surrounding the pool proper. Higher Temps In Store For Gtmo Next Week The Naval Air Station Aerology office has announced that next week's weather around Guantanamo Bay will center on higher temperatures and higher humidity. The Aerology Office also added that there will be an increasing possibility of thundershowers over the Base in late afternoons. Judging of entries for the essay contest "Why the U.S. Needs a Navy," has been postponed one week. Results of the contest will appear in the April 21 issue of the INDIAN. Capt. W. D. F. Stagner, Commanding Officer Dental Clinic and chairman of the 1956 Guantanamo Bay Carnival, presents RADM W. G. Cooper, ComNavBase with a check from the operations of the 1956 carnival. Profits from the 1956 carnival were distributed as follows: $4,000 each, to the Navy Relief Society, National Headquarters and the American Red Cross. A check for $1,200 each, went to the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Salvation Army, National Headquarters, National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and the Tuberculosis Society. Four thousand dollars was appropriated for Cuban charities. Money retained for the working fund for the 1957 carnival was $25,000. Money appropriated for the Community fund here on the Base was $21,134.01. The grand total of the cash profits for the 1956 carnival were $64,424.39. Disbursing Will Not Refund MSTS Claims The Comptroller of the navy has recently ruled that military personnel traveling aboard an MSTS vessel when going or returning from leave within the continental United States must pay for subsistence utilized aboard the vessel. LT J. W. Carleson, Base disbursing officer, announced, therefore, that no claims for reimbursement for subsistence charges can be paid by the disbursing office.

Your Vote Is The 1956 Ballot More, perhaps, than any other man, Thomas Jefferson has formed and molded the American mind and spirit. Remembered best as a great president and author of the Declaration of Independence, he won fame as a statesman and diplomat. He held that all men were created equal, and did more than any man of his time to bring about equality among men in America. He held too that men make government, and helped to develop the machinery through which men could actually have a share, not only in setting up their government, but in controlling it. Jefferson believed one of the greatest duties a citizen has in a democracy is to take part in the work of government by voting ... that voting is an obligation as paramount as that of obeying laws or paying taxes. This year, U. S. citizens throughPlease express to all con-corned my sincere appreciation for the highly successful demonstrations recently held for members of Congress and the press group. All planning and arrangements for the -handling of these important groups and the skillful execution of the demonstration O of our navy's new weapons S systems were outstanding in all respects. While these operations imposed an additional burden on an already heavy schedule, I believe results in public understanding and support fully justified effort expended. SCharles S.

What a wonderful thing to be able to hear. Most of us are equipped with two good ears. How poor is the man who has never possessed or who has lost the sense of hearing. With these ears we hear the music of the songbirds. With these ears we heard the applause of a listening senate as the great English statesman, Winston Churchill, pledged that the two great English speaking Nations would march on together until tyranny had been utterly destroyed. As we thought of the subject the other day, we decided to read up on the construction of this very important organ, the ear. We confess that we read in awe before we had finished the subject. What a wonderful and complicated thing is the ear. This appendix which we call the car is only an insignificant part of the apparatus for hearing. It merely collects the stimuli and directs them into the proper channels. They take care of the acoustic vibrations. As we think of the words of our Lord, do we not feel that He was thinking of something more important than just the sense of hearing. He was probably thinking of those voices which speak from a deeper level. The Negro spiritual expresses it in these words. "Hush! Somebody's calling my name." Are we able to hear these voices which speak to us from a deeper level? We would mention first, the voice from within. There is something within each of us which says OUGHT and MUST. It says this is the way, walk in it. Matthew Arnold expressed the thought in these words, "there is a power within, not ourselves, that works for righteousness." Yes, the voice is there. You know it and I know it. Are we able to hear our conscience speak to us? Then there is the voice from without. In the world in which we live we are all members one of another. No man liveth unto himself. One suffers, all suffer. Whether we like it or not we must be able to learn the high art of living together. We must be able to hear the still, sad music of humanity. Finally, there is the voice from above. He that gave man the power of speech, shall He not speak in tones which all can understand? The voice supreme is the voice of eternal God. He is here, He is there, He is everywhere; waiting to speak to anyone who has ears to hear. Be still, until you can hear the voice from within, the voice without and the voice from above. James H.

Orias To HS Graduates Guantanamo Bay Post No. 1 of the American Legion will give the Legion's School Award Medal to a boy and a girl of the high school graduating class, it was announced this week by H. P. McNeal, chairman of the Americanism Committee. Winners will be chosen by the high school teachers and by their classmates. The winning girl will be the one most distinguished for the qualities of Courage, Companionship, Character, Service and Scholarship. The winning boy must have outstanding Courag e, Leadership, Honor, Scholarship, and Service. The American Legion School Award Program is designed to encourage students to make a conscious effort to develop the personal qualities specified above. The award will be made annually in the Naval Base School, and each winner will receive a handsome bronze medal. In addition, his name will be engraved on a plaque hung at the school. Presentation of this year's awards will be made at the gradnation exercises. Yard Of Month R. D. Groeneveld, mayor of Villamar/Bargo, presents a $10 award to L. F. Biondo, RMC, for the Yard of the Month. The landscaping in Chief Biondo's yard consists of avocados, gardenias, hybred hybiscus and many other plants and flowers. He has acquired many of his plants from the nursery and also as a result of his own efforts by clippings, etc. A colorful humanitarian career that began in 1942, is drawing to a close when, in May of this year, Mrs. Helen K. Bowler, incumbent American Red Cross assistant field director and accredited representative to ComNavBase, Gtmo, resigns. She has spent 14 years of unbroken service with the Red Cross. Originally from South Dakota, Mrs. Bowler moved to Chicago, Illinois, the place which she now calls her home. An alumna of Northwestern university, she holds a Bachelor of Arts degree. After graduation she taught for sometime at Park Ridge public school in the suburbs of Chicago. The outburst of World War II completely revolutionized her plans of just being a plan school teacher. Seized with a punching sense of patriotism and swept by a personal enthusiasm to serve her country in a time of crisis, Mrs. Volunteers May Apply For Diver's School Commander Naval Base, in a NavBase Gtmo Notice, has disclosed that a six-week course of instruction for Second Class Divers will convene on April 27, 1956, at YFNB-17, in Norfolk, Virginia. The note calls for volunteers only. Interested Base personnel may submit through their respective command, a request for the school. Upon receipt of the request, physical examination, in accordance with BuMed requirements, will be conducted in order to determine the physical fitness of the applicant. Crowd Likes Hillbilly Show At Lyceum A lively and galloping hillbilly show of rythyms and crackerjokes was on stage Monday evening, April 9, at the Naval Station lyceum before a capacity crowd. Hillbilly maestro Melvin Price, backed up by his Santa Fe Rangers, opened the show with a crack! The show, with a running time of 85 minutes, went on with alternated music and jokes. The distaff side of the hillbilly aggregation was represented by two lovely, young ladies. The Rangers, toured all the U.S. Armed Services stations in the Caribbean, Guantanamo Bay being the last. Bowler resigned her teaching job and joined the ARC Night Motor Corps of Chicago in May, 1942, first as a driver and later as head of the Corps. Went Overseas in 1943 In May of 1943, the ARC billetted her for overseas duty. From that time to the present, Mrs. Bowler has remained outside the continental limits of the United States except for her one year tour at the Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, before coming to Guantanamo Bay, in January, 1952. Mrs. Bowler is perhaps one of the most travelled ARC workers, having been to 44 countries, crossed both oceans three times and made a trip around the world once. Upon her transfer from Japan in 1950, Mrs. Bowler and a friend, on a five months tour of their own, visited 23 countries of the Far and Middle East and Europe while enroute to New York. Besides being a well-travelled woman, Mrs. Bowler also carries an impressive hospital war record that very few women have ever achieved. Having 29 months of combat hospital service during WWII with advance hospital units deployed within the orbit of a shooting front, Mrs. Bowler participated in the Sicilian campaign, the battle of the Bulge and in the bombing of Naples. During these darkest hours, she took care, comforted and consoled the hospitalized Americans. Served in the Far. East After the war and until 1950, she found the Far East her serving ground. First she was stationed in Manila with AUS Philippine Scouts. Then she went to Okinawa for a tour of duty with a Navy hospital outfit. In 1947, she was sent to Nagoya, Japan for service with the 5th Air Force headquarters. During her tour of duty with the various Armed Services of the United States in the Far East, she made authorized trips to its different regions where she made observations and personal studies on the customs and traditions and culture of the places she visited. She wrote her observations in pamphlet form for the Red Cross Headquarters which was later used as guide material for the American servicemen in U.S. occupied territories in the Far East. Came to Gtmo in 1952 During her stay in Gtmo from January, 1952, to the present, her official duties involved recreation, social services and emergency leave verifications for both forces, ashore and afloat. At the Base hospital where she is closely associated, she's made verifications of health and welfare reports on patients for stateside chapters of the Red Cross where inquiries regarding their conditions are filed by service families. She has also organized First Aid classes, swimming and water safety courses. Aside from the bulk of cable work that she's handled, Mrs. Bowler, along with volunteers, has also featured regular "coffee hours" for the patients in the hospital. The indefatigable Mrs. Bowler who has worked incessantly, 24 hours a day, on call seven days a week, through a period of a little over four years to service personnel and military dependents, has no iota of complaint. "I have enjoyed my stay in Guantanamo very much," said Mrs. Bowler, "and I. regret leaving a place like this where people are perfectly cooperative in every detail." Mrs. Bowler will depart sometime in May and will proceed to her Chicago home. A canine's delight is in chasing a cat, Or, at least, that's the popular notion. Do dogfish, I wonder, put catfish to rout, When they meet in the depths of the ocean? 0

Also departing was one of our YO YO'S Robert Edmunds, HM2, who leaves for separation, and "THE CAIMANERA KID" Ronald Baynton, HM3, left for duty aboard the USS WISCONSIN. The Medic's Reviews Arriving back from an over extended leave was Dan Sullivan who just started a life sentence of matrimony. He is sporting a ring on his finger. It seems we have a celebrity in our barracks, a decendant of "KING FAROUK". A question came up, "what is the great ham mystery?" It seems Shorty was handing out Bum Scoop to the new troops. Huffman, how did you sprain your ankle? Lapp, I hear you are teaching Kania, how to play pool. Navy Wives Club by Louise P. Smith The monthly business meeting of the Guantanamo Bay Navy Wive's Club was held April 5, at 8:00 p.m., in the Scout Hut, Marina Pt. The meeting was mainly devoted to the election of new officers, since many of the present officers will be returning to the States soon. The following officers were elected for the coming year: Ellen Van Cleef, president; Louise Smith, vice president; Ann Garvey, recording secretary; Mary Jaffres, corresponding secretary; Jean Zemaitis, treasurer; Lois Fairchild, historian and Mike French, master-atarms. Members of the club who are assisting the Hospital Volunteer service for the month of April are: Kay Thomas, Elma Franklin, Lois Fairchild, Ann Plourde, Mabel Banker and Estelle Bailey.

EMs May Apply For Prep School Authority for all Naval com mands has been granted by the Bureau of Naval Personnel to nominate enlisted men with demonstrated or potential officerlike qualities to participate in the Navy-wide examinations for assignment to the U.S. Naval Preparatory School in Bainbridge, Maryland. The preliminary examination will be given on July 2, 1956. The result of the examination will determine who, among the successful examinees, will fill the 160 appointments to be made by the Secretary of the Navy for admission to the U.S. Naval Academy. The authority which was contained in a BuPers Notice, stated that the screening of applicants to qualify for the 160 appointments begins in the fleet and continues at the Preparatory school for those who have achieved the first step toward the ultimate goal. The note further stated h: wever that selection boards established by commanding officers should exert the utmost care to insure that every man who qualifies in all respects is recommended. Interested Base enlisted personnel are advised to see their respective Personnel Officer for detailed information. NAS Scuttlebutt The McCalla Field Ordnance division extends wishes to CWO Ziegler for a good tour of duty at Leeward Point. Supply has entered operation "Buzz Saw" as the annual inspection is nearing and an audit mnspection is presently in progress. Production dropped off due to the loss of L.S. Culver, SK2, who has recently been ordered back to VU-10. Culver joined the Supply family a year ago and contributed much in keeping the doors open during the trying times of "Too Many Chiefs and not enough Indians." Sorry to lose you Louie, but best of luck with the squadron. Arriving from NAAS Sanford, Florida, this week was H. M. Bloomberg, AK2. He has been assigned to Leeward Point to relieve D. G. Maxwell, who is going to take over the NAS Transit Shed here at main side. One of the Commissarymen of NAS had a surprise Monday night. Upon retiring to his rack, a big and very yellow crab had been waiting for him under his pillow but didn't live long enough to say hello. He says that once before while on the MISSISSIPPI he had a snake waiting for him in the same manner. MARINE MUSINGS Sgt. Szili has a new assignment as Brig Warden of the Naval Base Brig replacing Sgt. Tyrone, who will report to Camp Lejeune. Sgt. Szili reported aboard from MCS Quantico, Va. Cpl. Hoover finally deo.ed to take his thirty days shipping over leave. It's possible that his change of station orders decided the matter for him. He will be going to Parris Island, the happy home of unhappy boots. upon the completion of his Gtmo tour. The Staff NCO club has had a change of manager and Board of Governors. Sgt. Campbell was voted in as manager replacing TSgt Stoneking. We all wish SSgt. Campbell the very best of luck and we give TSgt Stoneking a big hand for a job well done. MSgt. Smith is replacing MSgt. Zemaitis as club president. The barracks welcomed aboard 11 new troops fresh from the states. Eight of the new men have been assigned to the Security Section. The remaining three went to Headquarters Section. On April 5, five more of our young PFC's sewed on another stripe. Lt. Colonel Esterilne awarded Corporal warrants to Pfe's Patton, Hood, Kavulic, Reiter, and Castellow. Welcome the new NCOs to their rank and may they wear their new' chevrons with pride. Down through history Marines have been called any number of names. Some good and some bad and some that have stuck with us. Some have been forgotten, but the name that means the most to us has stuck for nearly 40 years. This name is the "DEVIL DOGS". We won that name in France WORLD WAR I. The Marines held, counter-attacked, and defeated the German Army to such an extent they called us inhuman and dogs of the Devil or "DEVIL DOGS". Today Marines are still tagged Devil dogs and it is a tag we wear and uphold with pride. CPO Wives by Ellen Van Cleef The business meeting of the CPO Wives was held on April 6 in the CPO club. Four new members were added to the roll. They are LaVarie Butler, Jeanne Gugliemo, Marie Murray and Helen Spears. A decorating and game committee were chosen for the social planned for Friday, April 20, for members and their husbands. Members are requested to call 9366 for reservations. The next business meeting will be on May 4, at which time, Mary Hewitt, Mary Sheldon and Emily Trapp will be hostesses. F T G Bulletin LTJG and Mrs. A. J. Hoyt are proudly proclaiming the birth of Michael Chase Hoyt born here at 0830 April 7, 1956, with a displacement of 7 pounds 214 ounces Welcome aboard to the three new comers who arrived last week. They are: Hallan R. Farris, BTC, who is a Texan from Fort Worth, married and has three children. He reported aboard from USS SIERRA AD-18.

Y. where he will be separated and Nathen Shuler, DCC, who goes to the USS SIERRA AD-18. CDR Harry Fitch is even more proud than usual of Jasper, his french poodle. Jasper is the proud father of eight little poodle puddlers. Lisa the mother is doing fine and the whole house has gone to the dogs. What's Doin' Stateside Orange peels may be the answer to an old nemesis-the common cold. ...Bioflavonoid is the antidote. It's a chemical extracted from the orange and lemon peels left over by the juice freezers and other processors of citrus fruit. The 'market for bioflavonoid has jumped from 5,000 pounds a year to 150,000 pounds. ...Sales volume is now estimated at $1,800,000 a year against $60,000 two years ago. Science is trying to make a monkey out of Darwin. A Swiss scientist, Dr. Johannes Hurzeler, claims that jawbone and other fossil remains found in Tuscany, Italy, in 1872 are from 10-millionyear -old human -like creatures. Darwin's theory states that man and the apes descended from a comparatively recent common ancestry. ...But Dr. Hurzeler says that man and the apes branched apart 20 to 30 million years ago from an ancestor that was neither man nor ape. A crop reduction has been forecast for 1956. The Department of Agriculture has announced that corn crops will be about 184 million bushels less than the 3,184,836,000 produced last year. Also the prospective spring wheat crop would be about 44 million bushels less than last year's 232,787,000. B Saturday, 14 April 1956 'fifE INIAM

INBOUND International good-will flourished last Saturday when members of the Cuban Guias from Caimanera visited the Girl Scout organization on the Base. Mrs. Blanche Ross, visited Gtmo recently, in the capacity of Girl Scout volunteer adult trainer. She arrived here from Miami Beach, after a visit to Havana where she visited with Girl Scouts in Cuba. WLile here, she conducted a training course of seven, 2/z hour ,essions at the Scout Hut on Vict ry Hill. Fourteen leaders and prospective leaders attended regularly and received their trainee certificate. Of the trainees, over half will be here next year to give Girl Scouting to all girls of scout age. Some of the things stressed were qualities of leadership, games, songs, and special emphasis was placed on outdoor experiences. Ideas on organization, both within each troop and the over-all setup were discussed. Gtmo's girl scout organization is one of 800 troops on foreign soil, which do not come under council coverage, but are guided by national headquarters in New York. Henceforth, they will be known us Guantanamo Bay Neigborhood, with an overall chairman who has troop consultants and troop organizers, as well as leaders to help her in this program which stresses international friendship among all nations.

Winters and wife Betty of Indiananapolis, Indiana, announcing that they will arrive in Gtmo for a three day visit. Albert and Betty came by commercial plane last Saturday and from the evidence of very red complextions, they had a delightful vacation picnicking, skindiving, swimming, and in general, "living it up". The couple left Tuesday for Indianapolis, indicating they really like Gtmo Bay, Cuba and hoped to return for another visit some day. The entire Naval Supply Depot wished to extend their sympathy to Mr. Joe West, whose father passed away in Santiago de Cuba last week. LT Deere, former Disbursing Officer here, his wife Dorothy and daughter Kathleen, left 11 April for the United States after two years in Gtmo. After leave in Florida and Louisiana, they will go to Little Creek, Virginia, where LT Deere will be Commissary Officer. 0t THE INDIAN

St Page Se Locally Sponsored Caribbean Ride, NAS Chiefs Knock Pistol Match Underway Sunday The Administrative Aide to ComNavBase, in a memorandum, has announced that a Caribbean Area Rifle and Pistol match under the sponsorship of the local Rifle and Pistol club will be held on the Base, today and tomorrow April 14-15. The memorandum stated that the Each competitor is advised to pick up his own squadding ticket prior to each match at the statistical office. They must also furnish their own ammunition. Firing will commence at 0800 each morning. No competitor may win more than one award in any one match. It was also stated that competitors will be classified in accordance with their N.R.A. classification cards. Non-members will be classified as "experts". Entry and registration fees will be charged to individual, team and aggregate matches. The match will involve high power .30 cal rifle with metallic sights, small bore .22 cal rifle with metallic sights and .22 cal pistol. Purpose of the match is to further safer and higher quality shooting. The memorandum further stated that there seems to have been laxity in competitive shooting in the military services since WWII. Hopes were expressed by the Administrative Aide that with the help of other branches of the service and the civilian shooters in the Caribbean area, enough interest will be aroused to regularly schedule Annual Caribbean Area Rifle and Pistol matches on this Base. Tennis Is Becoming Popular Gtmo Sport Sidney Durant, in charge of the Athletic Gear Issue desk at the Fleet Recreation center has disclosed that in the local world of sports, "Tennis has of late become a booming and flourishing game, especially among the teenagers." This disclosure was strengthened when an INDIAN staff member walked in at the Navy Exchange Sports shop and was told that a large shipment of tennis balls and tennis rackets has been received by the shop. "For the past three weeks," the sports shop salesman said, "this store has been flooded with orders for tennis balls and tennis rackets. With this shipment on hand, we are now ready to serve them," he concluded. A farmer once called his cow "Zephyr" She seemed such an amiable hephyr When the farmer drew near, She kicked off his ear, And now the old farmer's much dephyr match will be an "Open" contest. The Fish Tale(s) by Pat Aldridge Candid conversation with a number of skin divers this past week has resulted in what may be the answer to why the rodn' reelers haven't been having much luck for several months. Little more than a year ago it was not at all unusual to spot large schools of big jack and literally dozens of Barracuda, Grouper and Snapper, all big fellows, too. Gradually, they seemed to disappear from these waters with only a stray seen now and then in recent months and none of the fabulous catches of past years being announced. Skin divers who have been around for several years tell us that the waters were once abounding in fish of all variety but, now, it is almost a rarity for a spear fisherman to see, much less spear a creature of any size. And why have the fish disappeared? The divers themselves will tell you that it's all the skin divers' fault. Where they haven't fished the area out they've caused the wary fish to flee to deeper waters beyond the reach of those alien creatures in the deep. Only in the fresh water river do you see fish in any number and the divers haven't pestered the river because the waters are too murky for successful spearing. Too bad some kind of control cannot be put into effect such as is exercised in regard to Langusta. If the 'Gusta boys weren't forced to lay off a couple of months of the year there would soon be no more of the Caribbean lobsters to be had at any time. Spear fisherman Jerry Dickson of the Air Station seems to have an affinity for hazardous adventure down among the coral. It wasn't too long ago that Jerry and Walt Holloway were diving between Windmill and Kitterey when a six foot Moray eel decided that Jerry was just the right size for biting so he, the eel, took a healthy snap missing Dickson by an uncomfortable margin. It was two spears and a sharp knife later that the thirty five pound sea snake ended up on the beach well dead. Who the heck says if you leave them alone they'll leave you alone? Glen Abbott well remembers the day of the unshy shark. Glen thought like many a Shark Fla. Bowling lear The NAS Chiefs outbowled the VA-176 team from Jacksonville in a second challenge match on Tuesday, April 3.

Confident of the end of that current trend, the major The VA-176 team is Jacksonrecord companies were geared to ville's leading squad giving an inrevive a flock of oldies popular dictation that the NAS team must "way back when".

Rescue, for the Chiefs was high series with 506 and Griffen was highest for VA-176 with a high 519. SCUTTLEBUTT "4 I and 'Cuda this fellow was just curious but he was curious awful close so Glen decided to scramble out and into a waiting boat. Wha' Happen? The Shark must have decided that Glen looked real delicious for he came right alongside and Glen ended up giving sir Shark several sound kicks to the side of the head as he vaulted into the boat. No, not a little Shark. Bigger than you or me. It was just a couple years back that Dickson and Abbott went spearing together off Leeward Point when a small submarine nosed in to take a closer look. The small sub turned out to be a seven foot Barracuda and, when he opened his mouth to betray the Holland Tunnel with teeth, the boys hit out for a small coral reef and protection near by. Mr. 'Cuda continued to stick around while the men stuck to standing on the tiny coral piece and Glen nursed a cut leg. How did that adventure end? From coral atoll to coral atoll twenty feet or more apart the boys finally got back to shore but swear they don't remember touching water any of the way and they were a far piece out. In case anyone is interested, a huge Jew Fish has taken up abode around Phillips Park. He looks to be about four hundred pounds of good eating and that information isn't going to discourage the skin divers any! no more rhythm tunes, despite her current success with her two million sellers "Tweedle Dee" and "Dance With Me, Henry". Miss Gibbs was next heard on wax with a cha-cha ditty entitled "Sweet and Gentle" but was forced to take a back seat when Alan Dale's etching of the same tune hit pay dirt. Georgia then recorded a rhythm side, "24 Hours A Day" coupled with the poignant Italian hit, "Goodbye To Rome". Both sides enjoyed only moderate success. As rock and roll continues to loom even bigger on the musical horizon, she has hopped back on the bandwagon with her current disking. The top side features Miss Gibbs with a bluesy, sentimental vehicle entiled "The Greatest Thing". On the bottom deck, however, is "Rock Right", strictly tailored for the coke set. The McGuire Sisters recently recorded an album called "Do You Remember When". I'm sure that none of the girls remember that far back as the 12 tunes include such songs as "June Night", "Tip Toe Through The Tulips" and others popular in the courtin' days of Mother and Dad. Teresa Brewer has "A Tear Fell' coupled with a southern blues entitled "Bo Weevil". From the flick, "The Las Vegas Story", the Four Aces have culled two tunes"If You Can Dream" and "The Gal With The Yallar Shoes". The Cheers, two guys and a gal who socked across "Black Denim Trousers" a few months back, have a highly controversial item in "Chicken" which relates the story of a death game race teenagers play with automobiles. (Somewhat like the one shown in "Rebel Without A Cause". Some radio stations have already banned the tune but the fact that the majority of pop records are bought by teenagers will cause dealers to stock it in quantities. Other new sides include Frank Sinatra's "Flowers Mean Forgiveness', Perry Como's "Juke Box Baby", Dean Martin's "Innamorata", McGuire Sisters' "Missing", Jaye P. Morgan's "Get Up! Get Up!," Fontane Sisters' "Eddie, My Love", Tennessee Ernie's "That's All", Nat "King" Cole's "Too Young To Go Steady", Gale Storm's "Why Do Fools Fall In Love?"to mention a few. 6 Saturday, 14 April 1956 M fIE INDIA1'

saturday, 1 April 1956 ~nturda~', 14 April 19~ TEE INDIAN rage ~eve~i SPORTS REVIEW by Joe Duffy A streamlined Naval Base Baseball League will open its 1956 season on Monday night at the Fleet Recreation baseball diamond. All games are scheduled for 1900 under the arc lights on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and at 1430 on Sunday afternoon. The Fleet Recreation diamond will be used for all games unless fleet requirements interfere, if that occurs, the league may shift some games to the Marine field. The Monday night opener will pit the Naval Air Station Flyers against the Marine Leathernecks in what should be a close contest. This year the league wiil have four clubs instead of the six of previous seasons. Besides the two teams in the opener the other clubs come from Naval Station and VU-10. The two missing contestants are the Seabees and Staff, however, MCB-1 will field a team for the first two weeks and be part of the schedule even though the games will not count in the league standings. ihe Staff club will also be playing, but this time as part of Naval Station in a combined organization to be known as Naval Base Composite. This reorganization of the league not only strengthened a weak Naval Station club, it also served to firm up a four-team league with the power equally distributed, and presents a more competitive picture for the baseball race. On the basis of their pre-season performance, the Flyers and Marines look to be the best on the field. The Flyers have the pitching in Gustafson and McCalmont, and the league's best catcher in Ed Tanzi who is playing his second season for NAS. The Marines lineup is packed with heavy hitters, but the pitching is questionable, in about the same degree as the Flyer's hitting strength. the Marines have a couple of solid smashers returned from last season's club in first baseman Chuck Hunter and shortstop Castellow. Pitcherinfielder jack Dowd, third baseman Collins and catcher Steve Kavolic also return along with Mike Sivilli who played his first game in the softball season. 'Ihis club should be hard to beat, but if the Flyers are as good on the field as they are on paper they should win their share of the series. lic uday's night contest should throw a lot of light on the subject. The Schedule Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Sunday NAS vs Marines VU-10 vs MCB-1 Naval Base vs NAS Marines vs VU-10 VU-10 vs NAS The Spotlight The Naval Air Station held a Sportsmen banquet last Monday night in the EM Club Palm Room. Individual trophies were awarded to members of the Golf team who captured low net and low gross titles in the intercommand golf tournament, and to the basketball squad who finished in first place in the intercommand basketball competition. The Leeward Point cagers were also honored for winning the annual sportsmenship award. ...The Flyers starting lineup for the baseball opener will have Waldrop at first base, Pearson at second, Williams on third, and Schaffer at short. In the outfield will be Whitaker, Rhodes, Ransom or Jette, and the battery will consist of Gustafson on the mound and Tanzi behind the plate. It will be strange to watch Bob Eells in a Naval Station uniform this year after having seen him perform for the VU-10 Mallards last season. In the nip and tuck 1955 pennant race the Mallards and Indians battled toe to toe down to the finish, and it was Eells who figured so highly in the Mallards wins. ...Emphasis will be stressed on the forming of a solid All-Star squad this year for competing in the southeastern All-Navy finals held at Pensacola each year. The team will be known as Guantanamo Navy in the tournament, and the word from the press box is that we expect to go all navy this time. ...Be around next week with the Scorebook. Ladies Golf Shots VU-10 Nips NAS 6-5 by Bucky Pierce Last Wednesday the lady golfers played for low net and low putts. Golf balls were awarded to the following winners: First and Second FlightFirst low net-Marian Caruthers Second low net-Lavaria Butler Third low net-Bev Larson Low Putts-Lois Cooper Third FlightFirst low net-Bucky Pierce Second low net-Tie-Millie Kuba Patty Patterson Low Putts-Florence Fortenberry The Goat tournament ends this week. Everyone is checking on the outcome of each match, but so far it is impossible to even guess who the winner will be. At this writing Lavaria Butler leads the First and Second flight with Chris Whitton and Marian Caruthers tied for a close second place. Millie Kuba tops the third flight, but Margaret Wall is only one goat behind her. Hope all of you have an extra good game during your match this week and hope that Friday, April 13 shows you the lucky winner. In Preseason Game The NAS Flyers lost to the VU-10 Mallards in a practice baseball game by a score of 6 to 5. McCalmont started on the mound for the Flyers and Tanzi was behind the plate. The NAS team began a rampage in the first three innings of play when Rhodes hit a double, McCalmont walked and Tanzi bunted. With the bases loaded Waldrop flied to left and Rhodes scored after the tag up. In the second Vokish walked and again Rhodeos doubled bringing Vokish home. The Mallards ,under the pitching of Montgomery, turned loose in the 5th when Swartz, a pinchhitter, started the drive. This was the fatal inning for the NAS nine and 6 runs were scored. In the last two innings a switch by the Flyers, of Vokish to the pitcher's mound and Ramson to the catching spot, halted the Mallards onrush. GTMO SPORTING CHIPS by C. C. Drumright BULLETIN. ..A Hole in one was made at 1705 April 4, 1956 on one of the most rugged par three holes of the local golf course. The honor goes to CDR. J. L. Stone, OinC of Leeward Point.

Saturday, 14 April 1956 THE INDIAN Navy-DPPO-10ND-Gtmo.4441 Cinema -Scoop by D.D.H. I hear that Leeward Point is to have a new lyceum hope that all the jet jockies and airdales enjoy it. News on Cinemascope also! The ball is rolling very slowly, but it is rolling. Plans and steps to be taken are being discussed, here's hoping that Gtmo will have the wide screen soon! DO NOT TAKE THIS STATEMENT AS GROUNDS TO START MAKING PHONE CALLS AND INQUIRIES! The plans are underway and as soon as definite information is obtained it will appear in the INDIAN! The Prisoner (Col.), has some of the finest acting seen in a long time here at Gtmo, but will not be too well received by the general public. The picture stars Alec Guinness and Jack Hawkins and is based no doubt on the Cardinal Mindszenty trial, for it concerns a Catholic priest who has been captured by the Reds. It is a tense and exciting game of cat and mouse that Guinness (as the priest) end Hawkins (as his captor) play throughout the film. Adult entertainment and it cops the best of the week spot with its great acting and excellent direction! I Died a Thousand Times (W.B., in color), is a good remake of an old Bogart film "High Sierra." It stars Jack Palance, Shelley Winters and Lori Nelson. King Dinasour (Lippert) .. Bill Bryant and Wanda Curtin ... science-fiction ...So -So, with a UH! Houston Story (Col) ...Gene Barry and Barbara Hale ...crime in the Texas oil fields ...fair. World In My Corner (U.I.) .. Audie Murphy and Barbara Rush ...boxing ...fair. At Gunpoint (A.A.), is one of the best westerns to come to Gtmo in quite a spell. The original color has been taken from the film and proves a drawback. It stars Fred MacMurray, Dorothy Malone and Walter Brennan. It is an off-beat flick and instead of the hero being a crack shot, he is a storekeeper who hardly knows one end from the other, the gun I mean! Plenty of action adds up to a good movie! Lawless Street (Col., in color) ...Randy Scott and Angela Lansbury ...watch out, here he comes again ...BANG! 4:004:305:005:306:006 :307 :007:308:009:009:304:004 :305:006:006:307 :007 :308:009:005:305:456:006:307:007:308:309:005:305:456:00-C -B -L -P -B -R -J G -A -R -Z -C -F -Y -J -L -T -P -N -P -I -D -I -R -L -SN -N -J -F WGBY Television Program Saturday, April 14 0:30-Midwestern Hayride ontest Carnival 7:00Phil Silvers owdy Doody 7:30Meet Millie ictory at Sea 8:00-Red Skelton cat the Clock 0 Runyan ife Begins at 80 9:00-U.S. Steel Maue couple Are Funny Wednesday, April 18 shop Sheen :30-News Parade ay Milland Show S:45-Robt.

It's a collection of short essays by the leading literary lights of this age, in which they divulge the secrets of the craft. Back to biography again. In "THREE LOVES OF DOSTOEVSKY" Marc Slonim tells us something about the three women who provided the inspiration behind the fabulous writing career of the great Russian novelist. If you enjoy books about writers which provide an insight into their technique, this one is just the thing. Theodore Maynard tells, the tragic tale of ill-starred, muchmaligned Mary I of England in his latest biography "BLOODY MARY." It's about time somebody wrote a fair, readable book about this "big bad witch" of English history. Moore and Pierre LaMure, a novelist who pictures is likes to write books with music and art backgrounds, has come up with "BEYOND DESIRE." This time the subject is Felix Mendelssohn 3 cent and his wife Cecile. What makes stamp the book look especially interesting is the galaxy of famous people of the nineteenth century who squeeze into the story. Everyone from Queen Victoria to Lola Montez gets a hearing. But Mendelssohn the Musician is the central character, and music is the binding thread of the book. Saturday, April 14 NavSta-Prisoner-99 min. NAS-Fort Yuma-94 min. Mar.
