Transcript Volume II. HOW ABOUT A WHITE " E"? The new competitive year started at midnight July 1st. During the next twelve months the performance of the HOUSTON in general, and in En­gineering efficiency particularly, will either put the coveted white " E" on our after stack or ' allow it to go to another heavy cruiser. To accomplish the first requires some very close co­operation on the part of all hands; that means every man- jack of us. Our fuel oil allowance has been cut approximately 15%, as has that of some of the other ships of this class. That spells greater effort if we are to remain the leader in performance. One of our sister cruisers has given the HOUSTON very close competi­tion this past year and will be a ser­ious contender for first place this year. For the first time it is possible for us to actually win the " E", as this year has officially been declared a competitive year and we are operat­ing with the Fleet. We have shown what it is possible to do, by turning in the highest score every year since commissioning. We can't afford to rest now; not if we want tangible proof of our ability and efficiency. Perhaps everyone is tired of this continual harping on a subject fami­liar to all. There is a reason. Noone Department can hope to attain per­fection without the complete backing of every other Department. To a great extent, fuel oil consumption at anchor depends on the amount of fresh water used. If we waste water - we are wasting fuel oil, indirectly. The amount of oil burned determines the score. The answer to that is Continued on page four Blaine, Washington, July 6, 1935 HOUSTON ITINERARY CHANGE Due to the fact that no dock will be available at Valdez, the HOUS­TON will visit Kodiak and Afognak instead. The choice of ports in these islands is left to the discretion of the Commanding Officer. --:;: 0*-- NAVAL NOTE In a recent edition of a newspaper under a Washington date the follow­ing news item was noted: " Secretary Swanson today cancell­ed plans to replace the heavy cruiser AUGUSTA, with the cruiser OMAHA as Flagship of the Asiatic Fleet. Officials said the cost of providing extra quotas for the 7000 ton OMA­HA was considered excessive, and she will remain with light Cruiser Divis­ion 3 of the Fleet. Rear Admiral O. - G. Murfin, now commanding Batship Div 3 of the Battle Force, will sail Sept. 6 to re­lieve Admiral Frank B. Upham as CinC of the Asiatic Fleet. Admiral Upham will come to Wash­ington in December to serve with the General Board." --* 0*-- RATING QUOTAS OPEN The following ratings are open in the Scouting Force:- BMlc, BM2c, Cox, GM2c, GM3c, TClc, QM2c, QM3c, SMlc, SM2c, SM3c, FClc, FC2c, FC3c, EMlc, EM2c, EM3c, RMlc, RM3c, CMlc, CM2c~ CM3c, SFlc, SF2c, SF3c, SMMlc, SMM2c, SMM3c, Prtrlc, Prtr2c, Prtr3c, Ptrlc, Ptr2c, Ptr3c, MMle, MM2c, WTlc, WT2c, Bmkrlc, Bmkr2c, Bsmthlc, Bsmth2c, Csmthlc, Continued on Page two ---. Number XXVI HIGHLIGHTS OF THE PARADE After a day of feverish activity erasing the evidence of a stormy trip from the sunny South, the initial steps leading to one of the shortest parades in the HOUSTON'S history finally got underway at 1700 last Tuesday evening when assembly was sounded anp. the snappy landing party fell in for a thorough inspection. Of course the Engineers who happened to be detailed to the fourth platoon had a little trouble finding just where they belonged, aside from that, the troops were fit and rarin' to go so at 1800 the first boat load was on its way. Upon completion of landing of the entire party, all units were organi­zed and then marched at route step to the main street, there expecting to go on parade in a few minutes, but, alas, the Bellingham Eagles Band had not yet left Bellingham. Since it is customary to have a band with a parade, the parade just stood at rest waiting, and what a wait--<> nly one hour and fifteen min­utes. Finally the raucous tooting of a horn hearlded the rapid approach of a large bus well loaded with the music and its makers. In short order the parade was again orgainized and off with a cute little girl of ~ bout six years leading. This was well and good, but the necess­arily short step worked quite a hard­ship on our boys who are more or less used to a longer stride, but as the parade route was only ten blocks long, all hands stood up well. Without a doubt the Eeagles Band from Bellingham are really good Continued on page four
