Transcript Volume 3 Number 1 HOUSTON ENSIGNS SCALE MAUNA KEA The Houston mountain- climbing En­signs, Wightman and Smeja, let them­selves in for a beating during the Hilo visit, in undertaking a combined 350 mile trip around the Island of Hawaii and also climbing to the 13,825 foot summit of Mauna Kea, the highest peak in the Hawaiian Islands. Starting at 6 a. m. Friday, January 5th, with Mr. MacKinney of Hilo, in the latter's car, they proceeded north­ward along the coastal road then over the tortuous, twisted dirt roads of the Parker Ranch, up through the cloud banks that cling to the mountain around 6000 feet, past the tiny C. C. C. camp and Humuula Sheep Station un­til the road becomes too rough and steep for the car. Six miles of hik­ing brings the three climbers to a good camp site at 9500 feet. Here they build a three- sided shelter with a con­cave stone reflector of lava blocks a­cross the open fourth side. The care and work entailed in building the shelter and fire reflector is well re­paid that night when a freezing wind rises. At midnight with reduced packs the climb begins. It is disheartening to put out the cheery fire, for the sur­rounding landscape is desolate and wind cutting. Overhead the stars twinkle in frosty brillance, while far below, an ocean of white clouds closes upon the steep slopes. At first the trail is well marked and easy to fol­low with the powerful flashlights, but as the terrain changes from cinder to lava, the trail is lost. At three a. m. in the lee of a huge lava block, a halt is made and a tiny fire built from dead shrubs. Slightly warmer, the party spreads out, finds the trail and ( CL ltinued on Page 2) Pearl Harbor, T. H. VISITORS FROM THE ARMY At the invitation of Commander Early we have aboard three members of the U. S. Army's Chemical War­fare Service. They are Captain E. C. Maling, Staff Sgt. J. F. Leslie and Corporal W. H. Williams. Captain Maling and Staff Sgt. Leslie are instructors in Chemical Warfare and on invitation gave a few pointers on the use of some equipment. Our guests say they find everything quite crowded but they seem to feel we have all we need. Sometimes we feel we have too much. It is a fine thing for us to be able to demonstrate our ship before mem­bers of a fellow service and we feel priveleged to have them aboard. Come again!! " The Play's the Thing l ' The Bard of Avon had ( as the boys say) " something" there. And he made a good record in the show business in his day. His stuff still pack ' em in whether in Helena or Helsinki, for people like shows and they'll put their folding money on the line any day for a belly laugh. It has been proposed that the Hous­ton put on a show to amuse our fel­low sailors of the Hawdet Navy. It takes time to get one up but what it really takes is talent. Have we tal­in the Houston? Have we men who, in their High School days, trod the merry boards of the thespian? Have we material from which quartettes are made? Have we at last a half dozen good sports, with the nerve of a traffic cop, who would be willing ( Continued on Page 4) January 20, 1940. HOUSTON VISITS BIG ISLE For the first time this cruise, the Houston visited Hilo, spending the first week of the new year there. It goes without saying that all hands ap­preciated the opportunity to have a look at the biggest of the " enchanted islands", Hawaii itself. To judge the territory by Honolulu, or even Oahu, would be unfair, for Hawaii boasts other and different charms to add to the total sum. On the " big island" we found many of the beaty spots pictured in well­known travel folders. It is the home of the famous Rainbow Falls, and the great volcanos Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, and the rugged impressive little Onamea Arch, framed in palms and tropical undergrowth. Some fortun­ates were even able to make the 350 mile circle of the island, and see the beautiful Kona Coast of the opposite side. Tho the Houston's visit was short, she also fell heir to Hilo's hospitality -- being provided with baseball, basket­ball, softball, rifle and pistol com­petition by various local teams. Socially, Hilo entertained the officers at a dance Saturday evening, and Admiral Andrews furnished a grand finale to the visit with a reception aboard, Sunday afternoon, just be­fore departure. Hilo. the Houston's looks forward to her next visit! CONTRADICTORY PROVERBS Absence makes the heart grow fon­der. Out of sight, out of mind. Happy the wooing that's not long adoing. Marry in haste, repent in leisure. Where there's a will, there's a way. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.
