Transcript Volume I ENTERTAI MENT COMMITTEE MEETS - GALLANT TO ARRANGE DANCE Last Thursday the Entertainment Committee under the Direction of Commander Ingraham met to discuss the whys and wherefors of the dance to be given and the Christmas party for the unfortunate youngsters. First business relative to the Ship's Dance was taken care of, committees ap­pointed and details discussed and ironed out. Chief Machinist Mate Gal­lant was given the job and position of Major- dome, under Lieutenant Heming. Sub- committee heads were appointed for the various jobs to be handled as follows: Ross Door Committee McMurphy Decorations Hall Refreshments Sivak Check Room Cafferty................................ Programs Yelverton Auto Parking La Tour Entertainment and Floor Committee. These sub- committee heads are to elect their aides from among members of the Ship's Committee and various persons in the Divisions who are es­pecially qualified. It is requested that members of the crew who are asked to help on Com­mittees, do so if at all possible. This is a ship's party and needs the hearty cooperation of the entire crew.

C. which in the eyes of the rest of the world put them in a class commonly labeled " idiot" or similar appelation. Time has shown their dreams founded on vision and scientific research to be real and the germ of modern aviation. Where four reporters, from their hiding place, gazed upon the appar­ition of muslin and bamboo soar into the air bearing a map I) ver their heads, today, thousands of versons view an airplane with little concern. The development of aviation is distinct­ive of our day. It's growth has been phenomenal. Monday, December 17th, is set aside as Aviation Day in commemoration of that day. Of the two men to first show the practicalibility of heavier­than- air machines, Orville Wright is still alive. Aviation Day is an honor to him and to his brother, Wilbur Wright. At 10: 30, approximately 7,000 planes will take the air and stay in flight for 0! 1e hour. There will be planes of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, commercial cruisers, Coast Guard, " crates" and whatever else man's ingenuity has devised to fly. In every town throughout the country will be machines superior to the fragile structure that the Wright brothers flew at Kitty Hawk. Even our ships have been influenced by it. Imagine an aircraft carrier in the U. S. Navy, thirty years ago. Air­craft has assumed an important role in our every day lives and will con­tinue to become more important as Continued on page four NunberXVI FRENCH CRUISER TO VISIT The French Cruiser Jeanne D'Arc, a training ship of the French Navy, which is touring the world, is sched­uled to arrive in Long Beach on January 15, according to advice re­ceived on board the Flagship U.

Donval, the French cruiser will remain anchored in local waters from January 15 to 21, and occasion society events to be given by civilians and on the various ships of the Fleet.

Courtesy calls will be exchanged by officers of the Fleet, civic represent­atives and the commander of the visit­ing cruiser. According to present arrangements the Jeanne D'Arc will then move inside the Long Beach breakwater, where she will remain for the durat­ion of her visit. • •• NAMES ASSIGNED NEW SUBMARINES The Secretary of the Navy has assigned the following names to the Submarines listed below: SS176 PLUNGER SS177 PINNA SS178 POLLACK SS179' PERCH SS180 PICKEREL SS181 .
