Transcript Volume III San Francisco, Calif., 15 August, 1936. Number XXXI TO REDUCE OFFICERS PER SHIP WELL DONE SAN FRANCISCO According to the New York Times, Commissioned Officers of the navy will be reallocated and redistributed in the fleet to provide fewer of them on ships, as a means of meeting the requirements of manning the new ships which are being placed in commission under the building program. Details of the plan were announced after it had been formulated by Rear Admiral Adolphus Andrews, chief of the Bureau of Navigation. "Admiral Andrews," the Navy Department said, "has made a drastic cut in the number of officers allowed to the various types of ships. The number of line officers assigned to shore billets has been cut correspondingly. Battleships, for instance, which had an allowance a few years ago of as high as over sixty officers have now been reduced to the figure of forty-eight, with further reductions in prospect for the fiscal year 1938. "The solution of the present situation in the opinion of Chief of the Bu- (Continued on Page Four) ■■ ■ ■•* ENSIGN KUEHL NEW C. W. O. This past Thursday, Ensign Kuehl reported aboard for duty as Communication Watch Officer on the Scouting Force Staff. Mr. Kuehl who came from the NORTHAMPTON where he has had duty for the past two years will relieve Lt. (jg) G. O. Hobbs. Mr. Hobb's tour of duty as C. W. O. expires the end of this month. The "Blue Bonnet", in behalf of the Staff and ship's company welcomes Ensign Kuehl aboard and wishes him a pleasant tour of duty. Again the HOUSTON came through and received a hard earned WELL DONE. The fine manner in which every man took hold and did his part in handling the ammunition Thursday makes one proud to say that he is from the HOUSTON. The Captain of the tug handling the ammunition lighter said that the HOUSTON detailed the ammunition in a most expeditious manner. The Executive Officer said that he had never seen a crew turn to in a finer spirit than that shown Thursday and the ship's officers had nothing but praise to offer, WELL DONE men. PROPOSED NAVY RESERVE LEGISLATION The Bureau of Navigation has drawn up a tentative bill to cover the reorganization of the U. S. Naval Reserve. This bill is based on the decision that the peace time Navy should be composed of three components as follows: Regular Navy, (active and retired), The Fleet Reserve and the Naval Reserve. The Fleet Reserve will be composed of officers and men of the regular Navy transfered to this class and ex-Navy enlisted men now in civil life. The Naval Reserve will be composed of three branches: Organized Naval Reserve, the Volunteer Naval Reserve and the Merchant Marine Naval Reserve. The purpose of this bill is to provide a better coordination between the regular and the reserve compon- (Continued on Page Four) We arrive at the famous Cliff House and Seal Rocks, where many seals and sea lions are to be seen basking in the sun; they are protected by the Fishing and Game Laws. Adjoining is Sutro Baths, the finest establishment of its kind in the world, and Sutro Heights, at one time the private residence of the late Mayor Adolph Sutro. At the opposite end of Cliff Walk is Ocean Beach Amusement Zone which is on a small scale, a replica of Coney Island in New York City. Farther on is the end of Golden Gate Park where lies the Gjoa (pronounced as Yoah), the stout Norwegian sloop in which Captain Ronald Amundsen, with a crew of six men, discovered the North-western passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Also to be seen here are the Dutch Windmills which furnish the water for the Lakes (Continued on Page Four) ALL NAVY FOOTBALL TEAM According to the "Mokulele", paper of the U. S. Fleet Air Base, Pearl Harbor, T. H., an All Navy Football team is to be organized in Hawaii. This team is to be coached by Ensign Gor- den Chung-Hoon, former Naval Academy football star. It will be managed by Lieutenant Lyons of the Mine- craft Staff. It has been several years since there has been such a team. However, there has always been much interest shown in football in the islands. The Hawai- ans themselves are great football enthusiasts. Each season several U. S. teams visit the island to play the University of Hawaii.
