HOUSTON EXPEDITION MAKES ASCENT OF EXTINCT PHILIPPINE CRATER miles along the road via interurban motor- bus.) Arriving at the base of the crater, our party disembarked and began the ascent. They struggled upward thru the waist- high grass. The towering rim ahead beckoned them on. It was a challenge to stir the hearts of men, for who could know what lay beyond? At length they reached the summit. Their minds were eased for there be­low them at the bottom of the crater lay the quiet waters of a spreading Singing at the movies has been a 10010 success. Sid's Band sets the key, 2nd Lt. Ned Gallagher gives at the ummph, and the movie operators provide the words. Every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, with the words flashed on the screen, movie goers get a chance to loosen up their vocal cords and try their hand at popular hits and old favorites. Suggestions have been pouring in for new songs to sing, and favorites so far are " Let Me Call You Sweet­heart," " Oh Johnny," and " Home On the Range." This is one feature of shipboard life we all enjoy, and we hope it will be continued. PRESENT CRUISE CHARACTER­IZED BY SWIMMING, SAILING, AND SUN BATHING. lake. After a brief pause they flashed assurance back to the flagship and to the outside world that the expedition had thus far met with no misfortune. Then, aided by alpine tactics, the party roped down the clifflike slopes of the crater. After thoroughly scout- ( Continued on page 3) < rmatter how a sailor loves port and liberty, he always loves to put to sea and get away from it all. During the last few weeks the Hou­ston has made but few liberty ports. This has given people a chance to partake of sun bathing and brief haircuts; • and we are all looking around the ship and getting more acquainted with those fellows in the next division, or are busy studying up for those exams. Sailing has occupied the spare time of many of the Second Division men. Nearly everywhere we have gone there has been excellent sailing wea­ther, with steady winds and smooth seas, and it is expected that the sail­boat will continue to be available for recreation parties. . Renewing an old tradition in the Navy, Admiral Hart has given per­mission for the fleet while in certain ports to permit swimming over the side. This was quickly taken advan­tage of on the Houston, and some ex­cellent divers, ( also some not so ex­cellent), have been discovered. All in all, we are really getting a taste of the Navy as we shall always like to remember it. It was a dangerous mission. Three Marine sharpshooters were provided, one of whom bore a Thompson sub- machine gun. Offi- __.. c. ers.. carried side arms. As the- party cast ofLfrom- the- flagship in the gray hours of early morning, sleepy- eyed men on watch ob­served that even the Marine captain nervously kept his barong within easy reach. It was the start of an all- day safari, whose purpose was clouded with the greatest secrecy. Some said they were to search for a hidden enemy radio station, while others held that they had been sent to establish the rumor­ed presence of alligators in the lake. At any rate, 14 men set out and climbed the volcano on shore, whose grass- clad slopes and towering, jag­ged rim had fired the imagination of all who gazed that way as the flag­ship lay at anchor i'n the bay. The party was made up of Lt. C. R. Adams, in charge, Capt. J. B. Hen­dry, Lt. ( jg) J. F. Dalton, Gunner J. E. Hogan, Manning, H. E., Sgt., Mothershed, J. L., Cpl., Lusk, J. M., Cpl., Clymer, S. H., GM1c., Tiefel, D. J., Seale., Stephens, V., Seale., Kal­mer, T. J., Sea2c., and Day, PhM3c. Lt. Col. W. T. Clement and Lt. Comdr. J. M. Robinson also accom­panied the expedition. To return to our party, they cauti­ously skirted the shoreline, for ugly coral heads barred their landing. At length, they were successful in ob­taining the services of friendly na­tives, who offered to transfer the par­ty ashore in their native canoes, or " vintas." From these same Moro na­tives were obtained three guides for the party. Thus far everything had gone well and they started out. ( At this point occured the only thing not in keeping with the tune of the ex­pedition; here the party rode for two
