Transcript Vol. II * .- s. s... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Long Beach, Calif., 2 March, 1935 Number IX Houston Completes LRBP. This past Wednesday the HOUS­TON fired her LRBP, firing a day earlier than expected because of weather conditions. The practice stood out for the smooth manner in which every thing went off. Everyone knew his job and did it, with the result that there were no casualties. To date no official scores have been received; but, regardless of scores, all hands are to be congratulated on fine spirit shown during and preparing for this practice. ...... USS San Francisco Joins Fleet During the Fleets visit to San Fran­cisco it was joined by one of the Navy's new cruisers, the USS San Francisco. The San Francisco is com­manded by Captain Royal E.

Many times, too num­erous to speak of, she has made en­viable records in all those activities which are an essential part of Fleet training. A ship is only as good as the men who man her, so those men deserve all the credit for keeping her out in front or at least among the leaders. Few men outside the Engineering Department realize the exacting re­quirements for Full Power Trials. Anyone of a thousand things can go wrong and even a slight derangement of machinery can cause a ca., sualty and that means a penalty. All of which leads up to our highly sucessful Trail of last week. The official report reads: Full Pow­er Trial and Smoke Prevention Run were made this date; no casualties, no penalties, no violations of good en­gineering practice. A comparison of scores shows this trial tops the last Continued on paR'e four
