Transcript Number VIII Wedensday the Houston is schedu­led to fire LRBP. According to the present plans the Houston will get underway about 0900 Monday morn­ing for the drill grounds of San Cle­mente. Monday will be devoted largely to practice runs. Tuesday we will hold our official rehearsal and Wednesday we'll fire. After firing the Houston is scheduled to observe the Chester in Division Day Practice.

Bullock En­sign ( SC) was detached from the ship to take up the duties as Disper­sing officer of Mine Division One at Pearl Harbor. Ensign Bullock will be remembered in his capacity as Dis­bersing officer on this ship from June of last : rear until the beginning of 19 35. Before taking up his new duties he plans on spending a months leave with his parents in Columbus, Ohio. Mr. Bullock graduated from the Na­val Academy with the class of 1933. Before comming to the Houston, he was attached to the Supply Depart­ment of the U. S. S. California. It is sincere regrets that we see our old " Pay" leave the ship and wish him a pleasant tour of duty in his new assignment. President Roosevelt has invited Mrs. Claude A.
