* Robert McGregor, American Council General at Kingston, and Mrs. Margaret Hall (Mrs. O'Donnell's mother) wore on hand

The Cuban children were shown a movie, 1001 Arabian Nights", and some animated cartoons in the liasonic Temple.
This was followed by a dinner at the
Family Restaurant, where they were
served a Cuban menu complete with ice

According to Chaplain T.K. Wilson,
the Protestant Community on the Base, who has been support ng the Salvation
ArmyI Orphanage at Guantanamo City,

NEAT TELEPHONE EXCHANGE BEING INSTALLED

digit telephone numbers.
The three-digit system is still in.
offoct, however, PWC mriphasized. It

TIlE SUNDAY SUPPLEMENT


G TMO SPORT S NOTES

By James W. Prejean

Expect some real thrills Tuesday
night, when the Marines clash with NAS Leeward for the Base Flag Football
Championship. The game starts promptly at 8 p.m. on Cooper Field.
Heres the background: NAS Leeward
beat the Marines last time, and then lost to the TEENAGERS. The TEENAGERS
then turned around and lost to the Marines. So, now, the arines and Leeward are on even grounds. Needless to say, one shall try to beat the other.
To size them up, the Marines have a
hard-hitting, rugged team, which is hard to stop, but have the distinction of
having the most penalized team in the I league for infraction of Flagball rules. NAS Leeward, on the other hand,. has a fast deceptive team. Both teams seem to prefer to carry on the ground, rather I than pass.
The Marines have five players on the ALL-GITMO Team, while Leeward has four. (See ALL-GITMO Lineup on page 7) The generd'i speculation seems to be that Tuesday night's game is a toss-up -- no odds -- both are favorites,
The winner of this match 'ill later play the ALLSTAR team on Satrday, Feb. l8, same time, same place. o doubt, this will also be some game to watchit
It is hoped that theso two forthcoming games will help promote Flagball here on the Base.
Altho' this is the first season, there has been a wondorJ. re-spoe, both on the field and in U Lanistands. We congratulate the Or icials Oo are really doing an outstanding loo promxr oting and officiating the gaes.
See you next week.


COIMNITY COUNCIL...

cation of the Community area and the all-around bettermerrt of living conditions.
The Council's biggest accomplishl:nt has been the approval of its proposal to


have a Community Center erected at Granadillo Point. The $100,000 project being financed through non-appropriated funds is currently under construction and is scheduled to be completed in August. It will house a game and meeting room, an auditorium to seat 200, an outdoor patio where about 800 can view movies or participate in other outdoor functions, an outdoor stage for shows and other activities, dining room, cocktail lounge, a Navy Exchange outlet and delicatessen.
The Council also conducts annual Community socials, and a weekly bingo party from which Community funds are derived.


MARTIN IJS MUZZLE LOADERS' TROPT

Second prize in the Shoot was won by Chief Harry Young, NAVSTA; the third by John Eicholtz, ad the fourth by Paul Adams, Winners will be awarded medals.
