Sunday’s game with the All-
Stars was much the same as the
one played at Greensboro earlier
in the season.
In that contest the Cloudbusters
hitting power, aided by several
All-Star errors, provided the mar
gin of victory. The same thing
happened here. The Pre-Flighters
collected 12 hits, and with the help
of five All-Star errors scored
seven runs over the stretch.
Cadet Joseph Coleman went the
route for the locals to register his
ninth victory of the season
against two defeats.
A single by Lt. Alexander Sabo
and a two base error by Bill Good
man, All-Star left fielder, gave
the Pre-Flighters their first score
in the second. Another was added
in the third on successive singles
by Ensign Harry Craft, Ensign
Stan Hino, and Sabo.
With the count tied at 3-3, Has
sett led off with a single, went to
second on a wild pitch, and scored
on Cooke’s sfngle into left.
Sabo, with three singles, was
best at the plate for the winners
while Hassett, Hino and Moriarty
had two each. None of the Pre-
Flight hits went for extra bases.

Book Reviews ...
The Navy Reader, edited by
Lieut. William H. Fetridge,
USNR. The Bobbs-Merrill Co.,
Indianapolis; 443 pp.; $3.75.
The Navy Reader is a collec
tion of selected articles on the U.
S. Navy in World War II. There
will be found among them narra
tives and technical descriptions.
The narratives include some of
the most exciting stories written
about the exploits of our Navy and
its men during the present war.
Included in this group are por
tions of such stories as the “Life
and Death of the USS Yorktown,”
“They were Expendable” and
“Ace High,” by Lieutenant E. S.
McCusky. Such first-hand reports
give the reader the benefit of ex
periences of men under fire; every
Navy man should read them to
know what to expect when his
chance comes for combat duty.
The Navy today has become so
specialized that a man in carry
ing out his individual assignment
may not have an opportunity to
become familiar with other duties,
ships or stations. The technical
articles in The Navy Reader give
in concise form a complete work
ing description of our ships and
planes. The editor has rendered a
great service to the Navy man in
sifting the mass of material now
being published on the Navy and
compiling the best in one volume.
Although each article is com
plete in itself, the editor has im
posed a continuity which builds
up a complete picture of our Navy
today. It begins with introductory
articles by the President, Secre
tary of the Navy, an enlisted man,
and a Naval aviator which give
the perspective of these men.
Then follow descriptions of our
ships from the battleship to the
submarine and P. T. boats which
include two stimulating contro
versial essays on the importance
of the battleship.
In the space of 32 pages is given
a complete and concise history of
naval aviation and its place in
the fleet. Every naval aviator will
Avant to read this.
The editor has not forgotten the
arm chair strategist and has in
cluded expert information for this
group under the heading of “The
Navy in Global War” and “Naval
