Transcript Volume II. Enroute, Mare Is. Navy Yd. Vallejo, Cal. Number XLVII THANKSGIVING DAY The well deck of the HOUSTON was the scene of a very unusual service at 1100 on the twenty eigth of November. Call for general muster was sounded, the Band blazed forth a stiring march and all divisions were marched to the deck amidships. As officer . .nd men stood at ease, Commander Ingr- aham read President Roosevelt's Proclamation. This was followed by a Prayer of Thanksgiving with Chaplain leadinc- All hands joined in the old Hymn "Praise God From Where All Blessings Flow." After the Benediction the divisions were dismissed, and soon found their way to a delicious turkey dinner served as only the HOUSTON'S supply department can serve it. Truly we had much for which to be thankful. BAND LEAVES HOUSTON Bandmaster Booe and his melody makers from the Saratoga were transferred to the Pennsylvania Friday. The Pennsylvania goes to the yard at Bremerton the latter part of this month, and will deliver the Band to the giant aircraft carrier, the Saratoga. Before leaving the Bandmaster and men of the Band expressed themselves as being delighted with their stay aboard the HOUSTON. They left with regret the many friends they have made during the Presidential Cruise. FULL POWER TRIAL SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED HOUSTON DOES IT AGAIN If you were the owner and driver of a racing car and had to put that car over the boards under all the rigorous conditions possible for seventy thousand miles without a complete overhaul of its power plant, wo.ild you consider entering it in a grueling race? And if you did, you would know what to expect of your mechanic during the race, wouldn't you ? " If you have begun to wonder what that has to do with our recent Full Speed Run, the answer is, Comparison. The HOUSTON'S last overhaul took place about twenty months ago and more green water has gone sliding under her sharp bow since then than most any other two ships can boast of. Another important factor to be considered was our time out of drydock. Three hundred and fifty odd days, since the last battle of barnacles; those tenacious little pets of the briny, affectionately dubbed Cirriped Crustacean by the scientist and just plain "Pain in the Neck" by all seamen. Nevertheless and not withstanding such things, we did enter the race and did better than, "just good". Fact is, in language of the baseball fan, it was, hits, runs and no errors! The total score for the entire trial including that ticklish business of running at high speed for two hours and attempting to make no smoke—not even a slight haze—was over one hundred percent. That gentleman—and ladies, if there should be any interested in the mystries of engineering— is the kind of perfection we like to Continued on page two FAREWELL There is an old Navy saying which runs like this: "We part to meet and meet to part again". An old Captain once stated: "The Navy is a place of partings," But still another said "Yes," but it is also a place of meetings." As Chaplain Shrum was detached from the "HOUSTON," he informed the reporter from the Blue Bonnet Staff that he left with regret. He thought the Presidential Cruise one of the most interesting of his career. He has made many friends aboard this ship and looks forward to being shipmates with them, again sometime, since the Navy is a place of meeting, as well as partings. His farewell to us all was the sailormans blessing. Good luck and God Bless You! COMPLEMENT AND ALLOWANCE The bureau has been requested to describe briefly the methods used in arriving at complements of ships, and the number of men that can be advanced in rating each quarter. The "complement" is the war crew of a ship and the "allowance" is the peacetime crew. As Congress never appropriates enough money for a war strength Navy, the ships will never have their complements until war is declared. When a new type of ship is being planned, the Bureau of Ordinance is requested to submit a memorandum showing the number of men, by ratings, that would be required to fully man the battery. The Bureau of Engineering is asked for a similiar memorandum for the engineering depart- Continued on page 4
