Transcript • MMS.S. HOOSTOfM Volume III Long Beach, Calif., 12 December, 1936 Number XLVIII DATE OF FLAG SHIFT UNKNOWN The date when Vice Admiral Tarrant will shift his flag back to his regularly assigned flagship, the INDIANAPOLIS, is not known. The decision will rest with the Admiral when he returns from Washington where he is now serving in connection with the Selection Board. However, your correspondent is of the opinion that the shift will not be made until the later part of February. During the Third Quarter, the INDIANAPOLIS is going to have to fire the greater part of her gunnery practices which the other cruisers have already completed. Furthermore, she is scheduled for an overhaul period alongside the tender during this period. Therefore considering the fact I that the Admiral will undoubtedly I want to be in close contact with the/ Fleet landing Exercise No. 3, I believe* that we can be safe in assuming that the Flag will remain on the HOUSTON the greater part of the next two months. CHIEF GUNNER CONDIT TO BE | TRANSFERRED Recently Chief Gunner W. F. Condit received dispatch orders transferring him to the Navy Yard, Bremerton, for a tour of shore duty. It is expected that Mr. Condit will be detached about the 28th. of December. Mr. Condit will be a loss to the ship. Aside from the efficient manner in which he has performed his professional duties, he has given untiringly of his personal time to develop our rifle and pistol teams. FORMATION OF "HOUSTON" NAMING COMMITTEE THE CHRISTMAS PARTY On Sunday, October 18, 1936 there appeared in the Houston Chronicle as part of the history of "The Port of Houston" by Col. Thomas H. Ball, an interesting account of the naming, launching and visit of the "Houston" to Houston, Texas. It is believed that the part of this history pertaining to the Houston will be of interest to the readers of the Blue Bonnet. We are therefore running as a series of articles those parts of "The Port of Houston" exactly as written by Col. Ball. We take pleasure in presenting the first of the series in this issue. HOUSTON When congress authorized construction of eight treaty cruisers of large tonnage and great speed, after two had been named Pensacola and Salt Lake City, some 80 cities applied to have one of the remaining six named in their honor. William A. Bernrider, secretary to Mayor Holcombe, was an active member of the Navy League of the United States, and while the mayor (Continued on Page Four) <in» DAMAGE CONTROL PRACTICE A SUCCESS Recently the Chief Observer's report of the HOUSTON'S Damage Control Practice was received aboard. In this report a very favorable comment was made as to the efficient and orderly manner in which the Houston handled all casualties and as to the completeness in marking and setting of the various conditions of readiness. Although, a complete comparasion of (Continued on Page Two) Excellent progress has been made during the past week towards perfecting plans for the Christmas Party. The Finance Committees made their reports indicating a generous response from nearly all divisions. The funds collected have been allocated, part to decorations and part to gifts, for the division parties. Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Campbell visited the homes of the 30 needy children as a final check and submitted a list of these guests. The children have been allocated by name to the various divisions. The enlisted men's children are assigned, of course, to the divisions to which their respective fathers are attached. (Continued on Page Four) <■>■». OFFICERS TRANSFERRED TO HOSPITAL Monday morning Chief Mach. J. Gallager and Mach. H. T. Meyer were transferred to the Naval Hospital, San Diego, for treatment. Upon being discharged from the hospital, Mr. Mc- Crary will be assigned to shore duty at Pearl Harbor, T. H. LT. (JG) WILLIAMS DETACHED This past Saturday Lt. (jg) J. W. Williams was detached and left the ship. Before reporting for six months instruction at the Submarine School, New London, Conn., 5 January, 1937, Mr. Wiliams plans on visiting in San Francisco, at his home in Indiana and in Washington, D. C. On the way east he will pick up a new auto at the factory. The Blue Bonnet wishes him a happy cruise in his new assignment.
