The Bounding Billow reports on Manila Bay Victory 

The press room of the Bounding BillowThis is the front page of the June 1898 issue of the OLYMPIA's ship newspaper, the Bounding Billow. The newspaper's editor, Louis Stanley Young was only an apprentice, first class, whose press room was either the forward or aft torpedo room. This issue was fifteen pages long and gives much of the sparse first hand accounts of the battle from the viewpoint of the crew.
