Transcript * U. 5.5. BOUSTOII* By GUS A Short Story The Ramrod Volume I, Number 5 President Takes Leave Of Ship The departure of the President and his party brings to a close one of the most enjoyable fleet problems and cruises it has been our privilege to enjoy aboard the Houston. All good things must end inevitably, how­ever, so in bidding a goodbye our sincerest wish is that they experi­enced a modicum of our pleasure. Those who leave us are: Pres­ident Franklin D. Roosevelt, Admiral W. D. Leahy, Rear Admiral Ross T. McIntire, Colonel E. M. Watson, Cap­( Continued on Page 4.)

In none other could this story ever have been written. Some years ago in one of thc Naval Training Stations which re­mained as such even after the hectic days of the war, and the Navy had 2 March 1939 commenced once again to feel twinges of growing pains there existed a very remark­able man.

Yet the imperious demeanor of Eickes brookeu of no hesitancy and as a result, part­ly as a vengeful thrust of the super­or officer called, he was assigned to the drilling of recruits. Characteris­tically, he took charge of his recruit company and had them drilling with­in the hour.
