Transcript Vol. II * UIS. S... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Long Beach, Calif., January 12, 1935 Number II NEW RATINGS New ratings season is close at hand. Those of you who have com­pleted the courses for your next rate brush up on the courses, and if your course is not completed and entered in the records tend to it immediately. See your division officers about your qualifieations. List of new ratings is expected form the Bureau of Navigation with­in the weeK. The present policy is to fill all Chief ratings vacant before 1 April, with the result that there will be many vacancies in first class ratings. The allowances will be more liberal in these two classes than they have been for a long while. With examination marks carrying greater weight than before a good examina­tion mark will put you a long way towards putting a rating badge on that sleeve. A recent change in qualifications now makes it imperative that men pass through the rate of seaman first before becoming eligible for petty officer rating. This shows the importance of knowledge of A to N subjects. In the past many men have failed in this part of their ex­aminations. So long as you remain in the Navy you must be a seaman above all else. Don't neglect that~ A to N course if you really want the zating. If you haven't a rating course that will help you qualify, procure one immediately from the Navigator's of­fice. If your particular course is not on board it will be obtained to help you. Good luck, bone up on these sub­jects, and next week we hope to be able to tell you what vacancies are open for this quarter. NAVY FOOTBALL SCHEDULE 1935 The following is the Naval Aca­demy football schedule for the 1935 football season: 28 Sept., W& M at Annapolis 5 Oct., Mercer at Annapolis. 12 Oct., Virginia at AIinp. polis. 19 Oct., Yale at New Hayen. 26 Oct., Notre Dame Not decided. 2 Nov., Princeton at Princeton. 9 Nov., Penn at Philadelphia. 16 Nov., Columbia at Annapolis. 30 Nov., ARMY at Philadelphia. • • • ALL NAVY BOXING SHOW A final summary of the Boxing Show at San Francisco shows a to­tal profit of $ 4059.90 of which half was retained by the 12th Naval Dis­trict and half turned over to the Fleet which has been turned over to the Navy Relief Society in Washing­ton. From all sides the Commander- in­Chief has heard nothing but praise for the manner in which the show was handled, and the excellence of the bouts. Thanks to the cooperation of the contestants and personnel of the fleet the show was a success. Incidentally, the HOUSTON was the only ship in the Fleet which sold all ' tickets sent to it for sale. Good work for the HOUSTON boys in con­tributing towards a worthy cause. • • • 1100 SAILORS HURT BY AUTOS LAST YEAR Vehicle accidents numbering 1100 disclosed in the annual report of Rear Admiral P. S. Rossiter, surgeon gen­eral, to have accounted for the big­gest accident toll to navy personnel during the year of 1933. S. R. B. P. Our youngsters are now initiated to smoke and fire. We have no E's to show for it but our performance is not one to be ashamed of. With the new crews now past the initial experience of gunfire we can take stock of the future. personnel failures were small, ex­cept of course we did not get any E's. Turret one suffered a minor mater­ial failure which if it had not hap­pened would save the 1st division a lot of heartaches. Turret two suf­fered a personnel casualty and was forced to requisition war color to ob­literate one well known hash mark. Turret three also requisitioned war color due to hard luck on the second set. A · A. guns put on a snappy per­formance but due to the large per­centage of new men were unable to put on E" s. Time was too slow, but the boys are not discouraged. Just watch their step in the future prac­tices. With our first firing behind us, we face the gunnery year with confidence There is Long Range after we return from San Francisco. Then come Night Battle, division practices, etc. A start such as we have made is not to discourage us. It is not always the E ships that make good scores at the other practices. That same coolness, and assurance we showed in preparing for this practice will show us at the top of the heap when the books are closed. Stay with them fellows. It's no time to swap horses when you are crossing the stream. - Lincoln.
