Transcript " ' Vol. II * -. s. s... 0 .. 5...- 0.. * At Sea, February 13, 195: Number VI PRESIDENT'S BIRTHDAY On the occasion of his birthday the Captain sent birthday greetings To our Commander- in- Chief on behalf of himself, the officers, and the crew. This week acknowledgement of those greetings was received, showing once again the fine impression we made on our distinguished guest. The White House:- Washington. February 1, 1935. My dear Captain Woodson: One of the first and most delight­ful messages of birthday greetings which came to me was that _ particular­ly nice one you sent from all hands on the good ship Houston. I am genuinely grateful to you all. Wasn't it a grand cruise! Very sincerly yours, Franklin D. Roosevelt. ADMIRAL BAYLY SUGGESTS VISIT Speaking in England recently, Ad­miral Sir Lewis Bayly, R. N. comman­der of the Queenstown base during the World War and of Queenstown based U. S. destroyers, is quoted as suggesting an invitation to the Uni­ted States to send a squadron of five or six ships to pay a week's visit to England this spring as guests of the English nation. In his opinion, this would " show the world that our two navies are not competitive but com­plementary, and that the two form a powerful instrument for peace. " Our two navies worked together during 1917- 18 in perfect harmony, and are ready to do so again should the peace of the world be endangered." KENNEDY, WILMOUTH, DOUGLAS NAMED IN ALL SCOUTING FORCE BASKETBALL SELECTIONS' Wilmouth and Kennedy were nam­ed in the second team for forward and center respectively on the All Scouting Force Basketball Selection as made by Jack Moore, noted Navy sport writer, and various Navy coach­es. Both these men were strong contender3 for these positions on the first team. Wilmouth being beaten out by Barrett of Chester. Wilmouth played a very smooth all- round game and was always one of the high scor­ers of every game. Douglass was another threat at forward position. Gliniany of the Vestal and Kennedy were a toss up for the center berth. Gliniany probably being picked be­cause of the better record of his team rather than because of any individual superiority. Kennedy always had con­trol of the situation but at times was unable to get the proper range there­by missing more shots than he should have, but he was an outstanding player in every game. Douglass was named as right for­ward on the second team as picked by Lt. ( jg) Dennett, Cruisers Basket­ball Officer. Douglass was not such a high scorer as Kennedy and Wil­mouth being essentially a feed man, however he seemed to have a knack of being at the right place at the proper time and knowing just where to pass without a moment's hesitation. Nevertheless at tintes he turned in some mighty nice scores. If a selection of a three man com­bination had been made it would un­doubtedly have been Wilmouth, Ken­nedy and Douglass. They were with- Continued on page three SIGHTS WORTH SEEING It has been said that Southern Cali­fornia offers a greater variety of at­tractions - more to see and do and remember - than any other single re­sort area anywh~ re. Many of these attractions are so well known that they scarcely need mentioning. We learn from our exchange of some attractions not so well known but well worth seeing. Have you ever visited the California Alligator Farm, the W. K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Ranch, the Los Angel­es Ostrich Farm and Cay's Lion Farm? These places are most interesting to visit and all within easy reach from Los Angeles, either by auto or bus. The California Alligator Farm is located near Lincoln Park, Los Angeles. Here can be seen hundreds of alligators of all sizes, from little babies hardly the size of a lizard, up to huge monsters, 500 years old or more. The nests, the eggs incabating in machines, all to be seen in a beautiful park and miniature lakes with special exhibitions given daily of trained alligators shooting the chutes. W. K. Kellogg's Arabain Horse Ranch lies near Pomona, California. One sees much beautiful country even going there. At this beautiful farm with its white spotless stables, surrounded by green pastures and fertile fields are bred and raised the finest of Arabian stock. Many of these are prize win­ners and are much sought after by motion pictures producers. White uni­formed attendants gladly show visit­ors around. And then a real treat can be had by visiting the Los Angeles Ostrich Farm. This farm has the only trained Os­Continued on page four
