Transcript VoL II San Pedro, CaliL, 1 June, 1935 Number XXI H, R, and S DIVISION ISSUE ALOHA SHIPMATES ASSISTANT SECRETARY DEPARTS --* 0*-- THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF THE NAVY WASHINGTON San Pedro, California, 31 May. 1935. From: Assistant Secretary of the Navy, To Commander Cruisers, Scouting Force. Subject: Appreciation, U. S. S. HOUSTON. 1. It is with much pleasure that I ex­press to you my. admiration for the seaman­like manner in which Captain W. B. Woodson, U. S. N., Commanding U. S. S. HOUSTON, has handled his responsibilities during my pas­sage to and from Honolulu, on an official in­spection of naval activities in the Territory of Hawaii. 2. At Captain Woodson's invitation, I had the privilege of inspecting his ship's conple­ment and, also, of accompanying him through the ship. The' professional competence of officers and men and their splendid spirit, are strikingly evident, in the manner in which they bear themselves, and in the ex­cellence of their evolutions, an 1n the ad­mirable condition of the ship itself. 3. During my stay aboar<\. with my party, no effort was spared by the ship's company generally, to render everything pleasant for me. I shall look back with keen appreciation to my days aboard the HOUSTON, and I shall remember Captain Woodson, his officers, seamen, and marines, with affectionate regard. 4. As Assistant Secretary of the Navy, I consider that I was very fortunate in having an opportunity to observe the performance of one of the heavy cruisers under sea condi­tions-- and I would be less that just if I fail­ed to place upon my record my very high opin­ion of Captain Woodson's professional attain­ments, as reflected in the character of his ship. H. L. ROOSEVELT WASHINGTON Yesterday, Col. H. L. Roosevelt departed on . the last leg of his intensive tour of inspection. We were sorry to see him go because we enjoyed his com­pany but we are glad he has completed a strenous undertaking and returns for a well earned rest. Our good wishes are with him and his party whom we are proud of calling " shipmates." Two letters written by the Assistant Secretary of the Navy are quoted below, let. them speak for him: ­THE ASSISTANT SECRETARY OF THE NAVY Have you noticed the new " Blue Bonnet Contributions" box in the recreation compartment? A fine piece of work by our R Division, Shaw, CM1c. Now let's see the insides stuffed every week. Very sincerely yours, ( signed) H. L. Roosevelt. USS HOUSTON, At Sea, 30 May, 1935 Captain W. B. Woodson, USN, Commanding, USS HOUSTON. My dear Captain Woodson: I am at loss to find words with which to express adequately my deep appreciation for the kind feelings expres. ed in your letter to me of this date. I wish to take this occasion to thank you, and through you~ the officers and crew of your most excellent ship, for the kindness and consideration shown to my party and my­self since we have been aboard the Houston. I wish particularly to emphasize my deep appreciation for the care and consideration shown me personally during my illness in Honolulu. The doctors recommended Quiet ~ nd rest a, s an essential for recovery. I know of no place ashore where such complete quiet could have been had, and this was only at­tainable through the kindly consideration of the officers and men. I again want to thank you and all hands, and to wish you all happiness and success in the service. Continued on page four The time for losing old shipmates and getting the new has arrived. To those leaving us this weekend; we say farewell. We wish to Lt. ( jg) W. T. Hines a happy cruise in the land of hula- hula; to Lt. ( jg) H. M. Heming a happy home with his bride at New London; to Lt. F. B. Miller a bright bunch of students at Pensacola, and to Ensigns S. Jurika and H. L. Leon happy landings in that land of hard boiled aviators- Pensacola. Good luck, but drop in again. --* 0*- ­" CHOW DOWN" Few men have ever stopped to think what the significance of that expres­sion means in relation to the daily ration; or to the years of experi­ment spent to bring this-- our daily bread- up to its present high stan­dard. In his article, " The Evoluiion of the Navy Ration", appearing in the December, 1934 edition of the Unit­ed States Naval Institute Proceed­ings; Lieut- Comdr.. J. H. Skillman, ( SC) USN, gives an' excellent histor-. ical account of our present ration. Space does not permit the entire article to be reprinted therefore the writer will attempt a brief resume. " and there shall also be allow-ed one- half pint of distilled spirits per day, or in lieu thereof, one quart of beer per day to each ration " ( Act of March 27, 1794.) " Although at that time there may have been some opinion to the con-
