Transcript • V. L n Ban'Diego, Calif., June 15, 1935 ENGINEER'S ISSUE Number XXIII THE ENGINEERING DEPARnlENT And What It Means To You The Engineering Department is or­ganized with the Engineer Officer as the head of the Department and re­sponsible only to the Executive and Commanding Officers. Directly under him are the First Assistant and the Division Officers. The Department is divided into four Divisions, " A" Auxiliary; " B" Boiler; " E" Elictrical and " M" Main Engine. Each has a line officer and warrant officer as division officers. The " A" or Auxiliary Division' has charge of all boat engines, evapora­tors, ice machines, machine' shop, the heating system throughout the ship and the whistle and siren. There is also the general repair gang, which does all acetylene welding and braz­ing. This division is on the job night and day. Warm water in the scuttle­butt or a delayed liberty because of a broken down boat, are among the many things that make the import­ance of the " A" division felt by all hands. The' " B" or Boiler Division has charge of the eight boilers located in the four firerooms, and the boiler­makers shop. This is the largest div­ision but when more than two fire­rooms ire in use its personnel must stand watch and watch. ( Four on, four off.) For full power, personnel must be obtained elsewhere. In port the boilers must be cleaned, both fire Continued on page four HOUSTON'S FIFTH BIRTHDAY Monday, June 17, is the anniver­sary of the ship's ~ ommissioning. Five years ago, several hundred men and their officers proudly watched the National Ensign hoisted on board a trim new cruiser of the line, for the first time. Much green water, and ! lome not so green has gone skirri~ g under her bottom since then. Much has been written about the ports and countries visited during those five short years; much more will be recounted in the years to come, for the HOUSTON seems to be a ship destined to go places! To those of us who have served on the " Long Horn" ship since her for­mal introduction into the Naval Ser­vice, she has been a real home and our adventures with her will always be the source of pleasant memories. Continued on page two --* 0*- ­OFFICER CHANGES Comdr. P. K. Robottom, our new Executive Officer, assumed his new duties last Tuesday upon relieving Comdr. F. D. Manock, ordered to duty at Bremerton. To Comdr. Robottom we extend a hearty welcome and wish him as fine a cruise aboard as the old timers have had. To Comdr. Manock farewell and our best wish­es for him on his new station. To the following we bid farewell and sucessful cruises on their new ships: Lt. ( jg) F. B. Stevens to USS Continued on page three EVOLUTION OF ENGINES The power of steam and the em­ployment of that fluid in various forms has been known since beyond the scope of our history. The earliest known record of an engine operated by steam is that of Hero, who, at Alexandria, about 120 B. C., described a steam turbine in which a globe is caused to revolve by the reaction of steam being exhausted to atmos­phere. No great progress was made in the application of steam engines to practical purposes until 1650, when the second Marquis of Worchester, Edward Somerset, constructed a steam fountain and employed it in raising water from a moat to the top of the tower of Raglan Castle. There is but little information available as to the origin of the internal combustion en­gine. In 1680 Huygens, a Dutchman, proposed to use gun powder, explod­ed in a large cylindrical vessel filled with air, expelling the air through check valves, thus leaving, after cool­ing, a partial vacuum. The presure of the atmosphere then drove a pis­ton down to the bottom of the vessel, lifting a weight or doing other work. About 1794, Robert Street, an En­glishman, patented an engine con­taining a motor cylinder in which worked a piston connected to a lever. This lever operated a pump. The bot­tom of the motor cylinder was heated by fire. A few drops of turpentine were I introduced and evaporated by the heat. The piston was then drawn Continued on page four
