Yo! Ho! For a
Life That's Free!
The following excerpts from the
diary of Alfred Jacobiton, Tacoma
boy now home on a two months
furlough from his battleship, the
U. S. S. Bochester, gives a natu
ral and Interesting account of a
sailor's life on board a convoy
Young Jacobson joined the navy
in Tacoma last May and war, sent
to Bremerton for training. Since
that time he has made two trips
to France on a convoy ship. In his
diary we learn of one of these
trips, the la*est one which he
made. Here are the quotations:
Wednesday, Dec. 26.—Left New
York today. At night we anchor
ed outside the harbor to wait for
another convoy, and at 10:30 at
nisht we left with two other con
voys, carrying 10,000 soldiers and
Thursday. Dec. 27. —Calm
weather and very cold.
Friday, Dec. 28.—A little bit
rougher today; the waves are;
breaking over the bow and com
ing in thru the gun ports.
Dec. 29 and 30—The same.
Monday, Dec. 31—Tonight we
made a target that looked like a
periscope and conning tower and
towed it for the other ships. The
periscope was about four Inches
in diameter. The ships fired at it
at a distance of 1,000 yards with
the six-inch guns. They all aimed
pretty well but one was especially
good. The first shot went over;
the second fell short; the third
clipped the periscope and the
fourth dropped right in it and the!
fifth hit the conning tower. That's
the sort of thing we do to a sub.
This one is known to have stink
three ships and there are proba
bly many more which may be at
tributed to it.
Jan. I—Had a swell feed to
day. Chicken dinner. Holiday.
Wednesday. Jan. 2—We were
eating dinner today when the
Grant sighted another sub find
the general alarm was sounded
and we all went to our stations.
We changed our course so rapidly
that we shipped over two feet of
water on the gun deck and every
thing was flooded.
The sub fired two torpedoes,
one just missing us. The other
crossed the bow of the Grant. The
Grant fired four shots, the Pat
torler fired two, but 1 do not know
how man> came from our boat. I
fired two from my gun. There was
so much smoke I could not see
whether I hit it or not, but the
sub disappeared. That night we
started our submarine watches
and It is a general court martial
to take them off.
Friday, Jan. 4.—Nothing doing.
Monday, Jan. 7 —We are now
within B0 miles of France and
just south of England. Six de
stroyers met us and took our con
voy the rest of the way and we
have just turned back and are
now homeward bound.
Tuesday, Jan. B.—Very rough.
Wednesday, Jan. 9. —All was
calm until 11 o'clock at night,
when I woke and heard again that
old general alarm sounding and
thought It was a sub, so I got up.
There was water up to our waist
on the gun deck and every one
was shouting that we were sink
ing. I didn't feel very much
afraid and stayed by my gun until
everything was quiet. Then I
found that we had rolled 45 de
grees and nearly turned over.
That was why we bad been gotten

Three Glass Eyes
Donated to Marines
The Tacoma marine recruiting
office is rejoicing greatly over the
possession of three perfectly good
and useful pairs of field glasses.
These were donated to the Ma
rines by some patriotic Tacomans,
Dr. E. O. Honda, Mrs. A. H. Ek
lund and C. J. Eubree, who saw
the call printed In this column.
This is a mighty good start for
Tacoma, but there are still thou
sands that are needed and a glass
of any type that is at all good
will be greeted with open arms
by the recruiting officers of the
Their station is on South ir.th
and Pacific avenue and is open
all day for service.
If any of you Tacomans have
some good glasses that you are
not using, emulate the good exam
ple set for you by the three first
donors and take them down.
Times for Fighting
Men of Uncle Sam
It seems that Un-ale Sam's fight
ers are getting to depend more
and more upon the Tacoma Times
to cheer them up, tell them the
home news and make them better
scrappers, judging from the way
the subscriptions continue to pour
In. They are sent either by the
men themselves or else by the
proud ones at home. For today
we have two new men on our list.
They are 11. 11. Crandall, Goat Is
