Transcript * -. s. S... 0 .. 5...- 0.. * Vol. II San Francisco Those of you who have previously had the pleasure of passing through the Golden Gate and entering San Francisco Bay, know well that pic­turesque sky line of the Golden Gate City, San Francisco. As a city in which to spend your liberty hours in a most enjoyable manner, San Fran­eilleO ranks among the leaders. You canot hope to see all the sights in and around the city during our short stay. But you should make it a point to visit the following places of interest: Golden Gate Park- reached by sev­eral trolley lines. Fleischacker Zoo-- an unusually fine collection of various animals. Reached by trolleys. Aquarium- Golden Gate Park. Anthropological Museum-- devoted to the history of the development of h n race. One of the finest in world. Located on the campus of University of California, Pamas­and Second Street. Academy of Science- Golden Gate k. Museum - Golden Gate Kare Island Navy Yard- about 30 es from San Francisco. Reached boat from San Francisco to Val­Also reached by motor bus. Time at two hours. mmyvale Naval Air Station - a­t 42 miles from San Francisco. by motor bus. Home port of n and liPter San Francisc: o, Calif., Feb. 16, 1935 Our Fliers Gaining New Laurels Uncle Sam's Navy fliers have made spectacular flights in the recent past and vision even more spectacular air maneuvers soon to come. Just at present, 24 Navy planes are engaged in a 3000- mile circuit of the Caribbean, and a mass flight is ex­pected this spring between Hawaii and the Philippines. But the greatest show in American aeronautical his­tory is planned for the Fleet maneu­vers in the summer, when 662 planes will join with surface vessels in mim­ic war in the great triangle between Hawaii, Alaska and Puget Sound. Forty- five new seaplanes, with a 3000- mile cruising range and each carrying a crew of four, will be a focus of attention. Recently, a four- motored seaplane made a flight from Norfolk, Va., to Coco Solo, non- stop, matching the performance of a six- plane squadron last summer. It is to continue on to San Diego soon. In the fan of 1933 a squadron went from Coco Solo to join the Fleet at San Diego with one stop. The same squadron made the 2500- miles hop from the Pacific coast to Hawaii, non- stop, the following January. Last year two other possessions were linked. Flights and return were made non stop from Hawaii to Mid­way Island, and another squadron journeyed up the Pacific coast to Alaska and back. The ftight from Hawaii to the Phili­ppines this summer probably will fol­low the route of the Pan- American Airways' proposed West Coast- China line, turning northward via Midway to reduee the diatance of a sinele hop, Number VII Advancement in Ratings The following advancements in ratings effective 13 February.

The aeon was sighted by this ship at 1651 0.. • 2 February. At 1712 several officers 81d men sa the Macon drop ballast and shoot skyward to be enveloped by the ~ and clouds. I beleive this was the laat time the Macon was seen in the air. Those who were fortunate to have seen her then will almost remember that fateful day. We all regret we were unable to offer more assistance in the rescue. We offer our sinens congratulations to those who heroic. efforts were responsible for the v­ing of 81 lives in such a speedy and efficient manner. At the same time we mourn with the nation the of two lives and our great
