Transcript · r Vol. II * .. s. s. " O" S'Ti Long Beach, Calif., 5 January, 1935 Number I SHORT RANGE BATTLE PRACTICE JAN. 9th SANTA CLAUS VISITS US To those of you who were not aboard Christmas Day that dollar you contributed towards the Kid's Xmas Party didn't mean much, but to those who were - believe this man - it was worth ten times the investment. And if some of those ' hard boiled' sailors deny any vestige of maternal in­stincts within their bosoms you should have seen them about 1230 25 December. Our guests came aboard at 1040. An odd assortment from 2 to 12 yrs. of age, in every sort of outfit, fi- om new Christmas clothes to old worn out shoes and no shoes at all. Some­how our dear Santa was hovering in the clouds spying on us because as soon as they were aboad, he swooped down upon us with a roar that had all mouths wide open and eyes pop­ping out of place. The welcome ac­corded him could not have been sur­passed by any receiving committee on earth. And when the bags were open and packages distributed ac­cording to names those kids knew Christmas was here. Santa found himself quite rushed with 65 voices calling to him, and 130 hands reach­ing at him. The 2nd Division suf­fered much abuse to the well deck but the joy it brought was worth the trouble. Footballs, dolls, games, base­balls, buggies, wagons, etc. were the order of the day, and looking down on the crowd it was hard to tell who enjoyed it most - the kids or the boys whom people call ' sailors'. At noon chow was piped down. The Continued on Page Two.

Period Monday 4 to Sunday 10 Feb. All Units - Tactics - On completion base at San Francisco. GUNNERS GANG BUSY This quarter is well filled with gunnery exercises. The training will be long and arduous due to the many new men who are breaking in to this most important phase of a Navy man's life. Even the older men can­not maintain their past skill without ample time and opportunity for drill. We are gradually, slowly but sure­ly corning around. With a few more drills, under proper supervision and intense concentration by every man on his particular job, we will be ready to put the slugs in the bull. As the situation in the turrets sizes up at the present time, it ap­pears that the 1st set of pointers in turret 3 lead with a pretty good score. These men, Davis, R. E. and Vance, R. M., keep steady on the bull most of the time. It is also noted that five inch guns 1 and 3 have a slightly better score than guns 2 and 4. The Marines have always been excellent gunners, but the blue jack­et is capable and much can be ex­pected from the 4th division. Load­ing is coming along nicely, both tur­rets and 5- inch. It is difficult to pin a rose on anyone turret or gun as yet. One more day and we will have better data. The bad weather conditions nec­essitated a cancellation of the illu­minating practice last night. It will be held, most probably late next week. The middle of February we fire Long Range and later on an Anti­Aircraft Practice. Never fear, we will have plenty of gunnery activi- Continued on Page 2.
