Transcript Volume 2 Number 7 * U. 5.5. BOU: iTOIl1( Bremerton, Washington October 7, 1939 LT. COMDR. ROBERTS RELIEVES AS 1ST LIEUTENANT Lt. Comdr. Kelly Goes To Staff Duty Last Wednesday, 4 October, Lieut. Comdr. D. W. Roberts of the Naval Academy Class of 1921 relieved Lieut. Comdr. T. J. Kelly as First Lieutenant and Damage Control Of­ficer. Lieut. Comdr. Kelly left Thursday for his new duty as Damage Control Officer on the staff of Commander Cruisers Battle Force, marking the end of his highly successful year and a half of service in the Houston. He was almost entirely responsible for this ship's standing one last year among the cruisers in Damage Con­trol. Plank- owner's recall when Lieut. Comdr. Roberts served on the Hous­ton in Asiatic waters as Fleet Intel­ligence Officer on the staff of Ad­miral Taylor. As a junior officer he spent three years in Japan studying Japanese allu L{ h"" L years III " aiSl1H gcon, v. G. studying international law. This ed­ucational background made him es­pecially qualified for duty as Assist­ant Naval Attache in Tokio 1931 ­32, Asiatic Fleet Intelligence Officer 1932 - 35 and Officer of Naval Intel­ligence in the Far Eastern Division at Washington, D.

Debri, Yeoman 1c, left the ship for new duties in connection with re- commis­sioning destroyers and light mine­layers in San Diego, California. ( Continued on Page 4) CREW WINS WARMUP RACE In an early pre- season race qf about % of a mile, the Houston row­ing crew defeated the Astoria by at least ten boat lengths. Over the en­tire course the Ramblers steadily drew away from their opponents, un­til at the finish they were leading by a runaway margin. It looks good for the coxswain of a Houston crew to once more get the well known duck­ing. It is an age old custom that the coxswain of the winning crew gets thrown in by his oarsmen. By the way, Bishop, coxswain of the crew said it was the best bath he's had in quite some time. Although the team showed fine prospects for the coming year, they _,:: t. ill h> lVP < l fpw fl'ln It<: tn ()' lprf'i) mp.

With the able coaching of Chief Boatswain Mate Proimos, the squad should develop into one of the most formidable crews in the fleet. Oarsmen and Coxswain Bishop, F Div., coxswain; Hanson, C.

BAKER Mountain Climbing His Hobby Seattle papers last week paid a tribute to one of the Houston's new ensigns, Gustav A. Smeja, who with Chet Ullin of Seattle climbed Mt. Baker and searched for bodies which are still buried in the disastrous ava­lanche of July 22nd. Reaching Col­man Glacier an hour before sunrise on September 24th, the two moun­taineers were almost driven back by the great number of crevasses, the danger of avalanches, new snow and cold winds. Probably no one has climbed Mt. Baker so late in the sea­son. They continued on, however, reached the summit and descended into the avalanche area, searching there until late afternoon when the cracking ice and treacherous snow became too much even for them. Although Ensign Smeja has read about mountaineering for years, his first real climb was Mt. Rainier ~" 1 ~ J~: Y") : L~ "};,,::.~ : n'; ..::... 0u~: ..... ':" b V • Your Blue Bonnet reporter was also able to learn that " The lure of climb­ing is not in ' conquering' the moun­tain, but rather in being permitted to reach the summit and to look out hundreds of miles and to realize that the scene is probably unchanged from ten thousand years ago. It is an awe inspiring timelessness. You meet some wonderful characters. Your life depends · on the good sense, alertness and ability of the fellow at the other end of the rope. During the climb and the long hours on the trail one invariably exchanges views on life." Ensign Smeja looks forward to Mt. Whitney in California and Mauna Loa in Hawaii. Meanwhile the members of his watch section earnestly hope for his continued safety.
