Transcript Number XXVII c NAVAL AIR CADETS Seattle, Wash., July 13, 1935. E * .: IS. S. " O" S" T" O" * Volume II. " ENGINEER'S" By: Adam Chatterbox. The Engineers' have hairy ears, Their hands are always dirty, They growl and moan down thru the years, But still they keep ' em turning. After that bit of doggerel there isn't much reason for going on. No Editor in his right senses would ever let that get into print; even Editors have been known to slip tho, so why not try. The Black Gang on the Houston is no ex­ception in the way they are generally regarded by others outside the Force. It is, and has always been the con­census of opinion that, " all they do is loaf around in dungarees, waiting for the next meaL" That idea is more or less well founded, tho far from actu­ality. Few men of other branches have any real conception of the duties which are the lot of those horny hand­ed son's of the bilges. It is a fact tho, as will readily be conceded by all, that the Engineer's Force on any man- o- war have a highly complicated and very important job to do. Armament may be of the deadliest but it is of little value unless speed and maneuverability are also at the finger tips of the Comanding Officer. All of that depends on the efficient handling of the intricate units which are the parts of a giant plant develop­ing more than 150,000 horsepower. From the Chief Engineer down to the fireman on the fireroom floor­plates, every man is an important cog in a smooth runing organization. That smoothness comes only after years of study and experience, and is the result of concerted effort on the part of Continued on page : out HOUSTON WINS WHITE " E" Last week in this column we were talking about the white " E" which we want to win this year of 1935-' 36. . . On the 11th the HOUSTON received a dispatch from the Department say­ing that in recognization of our stand­ing in first place in Engineering Per­formance for 1934-' 35 had been app­roved and authority granted to paint a white " E" on the after stack That is something to be proud of! It was earned and is the mark of can­scientious effol't. No first- time winner should be content to rest on his laurels. Because of the nature of the duty performed by the HOUSTON during a part of the past year, some may think this " E" easy pickings; the next twelve months will tell the story. If all HANDS want to, we can keep the big " letter" where it should have been long ago. That " E" stands for excellence; and show ' em we can do it again, no matter what the con­ditions. Word has been received from the Louisville that she will ship us the " Engineering Trophy" by first avail­able transportation --*-*- ­OFFICERS ORDERS Friday, 12 July, Ens. Barnes was transferred to the Omaha for duty. Mr. Barnes, a graduate of NA Class ' 35, joined the ship in Long Beach 28 June. According to dispatches dated 11 and 12 July, Lt- Comdr. W. R. McA­dams, DVR, USNR, and Ens. Harry B. Jones, IVS, USNR, will be tempo­rarily assigned to the HOUSTON during the coming Alaskan cruise. In a recent legislation permitting the Navy to select and train aviation cadets in the Naval Reserve, the re­quirements as set down are of much interest to th~ Naval Service.

Citizen of not less than 18 or more than 28 years of age at the time of appointment: must agree to remain with the Navy on active duty for four years, remain llnmarried during this time, and to maintain · his flying efficiency after detachment from ac­tive duty by associating himself with some Naval Reserve flying unit and taking a commission in the Fleet Re­serve. Those meeting t1} e above general requirements, and the following ed­ucational preparations are eligible: ( a) Candidates who are graduates of recognized colleges and universities, preferably graduates of ROTC units, certified by the Bureau of Naviga­tion, and those who have satisfactor­ily completed a « 9urse in aeronautical engineering. ( b) Candidates who can present certificates from recognized univer­sities and colleges showing they pos­sess mathematical education which as a minimum shall cover a complete treatise as set forth in Robinson's New Higher Arithmetic, Wentworth's College Algebra, Wentworth's Plane and Solid Geometry, Plane Trigono­metry, and Millikan and Gale's Prac­tical Physics; or in other similarly recognized standard text books of equivalent scope. ( c) Candidates who are unable to qualify under ( a) or ( b) but whose Continued on Page two
