Transcript * . as. S... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Vol. II , NAVY HIGH COMMANDS CHANGE Monday to the tune of cocked hats, gold braid, full dress uniforms, gun salutes, ruffles and fiurishes and much color, several high commands of the Fleet were shifted. Aboard the USS California, Admiral Harris Laning be­came Commander of the Battle Force, relieving Admiral Frank H. Brumby, who will in turn become Commandant of the Fifth Naval District at Nor­folk, Va., with the rank of Rear Ad­miral. Before assuming command of the Battle Force, Admiral Laning was relieved as Commander Cruisers, Scouting Force by Rear Admiral T, C. Hart. Just prior to relieving Admiral Laning, Rear Admiral Hart was re­lieved as Commander Cruiser Division Six by Rear Admiral F. J. Horn. Monday morning, aboard the USS Houston, Vice Admiral E. H. Camp­bell was rel! eved of Commander Scout­ing Force by Rear Admiral A. J. Hep­burn who immediately upon relieving assumed the rank of Vice Admiral. After assuming command, Vice Ad­miral Hepburn transferred his fiag to the USS Indianapolis. Vice Admiral Campbell, who will revert back to a Rear Admiral will become Command­ant of the Twelfth Naval District at San Francisco.

Long Beach, Calif., 6 April, 1935 PRESIDENT EXPECTED TO REVIEW FLEET President Franklin D. Roosevelt may go to San Diego, in' June, to re­view the United States Fleet, which is expected to concentrate there on June 10, as a tribute to the exposi­tion. It is estimated that about 130 war vessels will participate in this concentration, with a total personnel of 55,000 officers and men. --* 0*- ­MOTOR ACCIDENTS The following is quoted from a let­ter from Commander Battle Force; consider what it says and act accord­ingly if you are involved in a motor accident. " In all cases where Naval Person­nel are injured in motor accidents it is highly essential that prompt and accurate information on the following points be furnished the Commanding Officer of each injured person: ( a) Within Command ( Duty Status) or on authorized liberty. ( b) Obviously intoxicated or no evidence of alcoholic intoxication. ( c) Negligence or misconduct on the part of personnel or no evidence of carelessness or misconduct. ( d) A condensed statement of the circumstances attending the injury. The remarks must be sufficiently clear to enable one to visualize the accident so that the injury may be correctly classified. The shore patrol is particularly charged with the supplying of the a­bove data but all boards or individ­uals investigating motor accidents should keep in mind the specific nature of the information required." Number XIV WAR GAME CRITICS ANSWERED The Secretary of the Navy sent a telegram to the President of the Greater New York Federation of Churches, replying to the expressed fears of this organization that the war game which the United States Fleet is scheduled to play in the northern waters of the Pacific is " The shaking of a club to frighten Japan." Secret­ary Swanson's telegram stated: " Your telegram of February 4th" addressed to the President with respect to the announced maneuvers of the U. S. Fleet during the coming month of May, has been referred by the Presi­dent to me for consideration and acknowledgement. It is apparent from your message that you are under a misapprehension as to the signifi­cance of these maneuvers and the areas in which they are to be con­ducted. It has been the custom for many years for the combined fieet to hold annual maneuvers, sometimes in the Pacific Ocean and sometimes in the Atlantic Ocean. The maneuvers this year are being held in accordance with this custom and will take place in the Pacific Ocean, in the vicinity of our own possessions in Alaska and our own possessions in the Hawaiian Islands. They will not be held in the Far East or off the coast of Japan or in Japan's front door as has been erroneously reported. In fact, the area of operations will be wholly in the eastern Pacific and none of our ships will approach within two thous­and miles of Japan. I hope this ex­planation will allay any apprehen­sion you may feel that these maneu­vers jeopardize the friendly relations Continued on pace four
