S. S. HOUSTO is ten years old. Birthdays mean a resume' of past years. and so we dedicate this issue of the Blue Bonnet to Our Ship and her three plankowners: A. J. Arsenault, EMlc, J.. Cawthon.

In Houston the ship's 0 lcers and men were royally entertained as the city welcomed its ship. Final trials and runs were held and then the ship sailed for the Asia­1931 tic Station 14 January, 1931. The Houston arrived in Ma­nila on 22 February and assumed her role as flagship of the Asiatic Fleet. While on duty there she was active in rescue work during the Yangtze flood of October, 1931. When hostili­1932 ties broke out January 31, 1932, the Houston sailed, under des­patch orders, from Manila to Shang­hai to protect American lives and in­terests.

Miss Elizabeth Holcombe, daughter of the mayor of Houston, Texas, sponsored the ship, giving her the name of that city in memory of Gene. r. a. l.. Sam Houston. The length of the Houston may be compared with the length of two foot­ball fields placed end to end, or with the height of a 48- story building.
