Transcript Volume II. HOUSTON TO VISIT SEWARD During the period July 25- 27 the Houston is ' cheduled to visit Seward, Alaska. Seward , which is located on the south east corner oJ: the KenaI Peninsula, has a population of only a few hundred people. It is important chiefly because it is the port for the Government- owned Alaskan Railroad \ ' hich connects the coast with inland Ala ' ka. The town itself is rather small to absolb liberty parties; but, fishing, hiking, and boating should offer ample I creation. Resurrection River behind eward affords fair trout fishing ( Dolly Varden trout)., i. e., fair fishing in Alaska ' would be " good" in the Sta­tes. Salmon may be trolled for with fair success in Ressurrection Bay and along the shoreline of the U. S. Nav­al Resel vation, this is subject to con­formation after arrival. The KenaI Penninsular i famous for its glaciers and it is believed that some of these may be reached by hiking parties. Last summer the Wright arranged for a special train which took a large liberty party to Anchorage, a much larger town about one hundred miles up the river. The cost of the trip per­man was nominal, and including a mid- day meal at Anchorage. The ship's base ball team played the An­chorage team ' in the afternoon. The officer. an · 1 men who made this trip reported a grand time, with a sceni­cally interesting trip on the train. It is planned to make similar arrange­ments during the Houston's vi it. Cordova, Alaska, July 20, 1935 THE WHITE " E" It is believ there have been very few ships, first line, in the U. S. Navy which have equaled the record just re­cently completed by the Houston in winning . the Engineering " E". During he past four years this vessel has been a\' arded every " E" possible for aves. el in her class. The following are the diffcrent" E" ' s, GUNNERY, EN­GINEERING, COMMUNICATION, TuRRETS 1' 0. 1, 2, and 3, AA guns - o. 1, 2, 3, and 4, the Torpedo tubes and all four seaplanes. Whether or not another ship has held as many " E" '., the Houston and her crew can fe 1 they have been doing their bit in carrying out the. ideals of the service and we must not rest on these laurels but go on to greater achieve­ments, and many more " E" ' so -- t.~~ .. ' IGHTING BOB" EVANS One Sun, lay not long after the bat­tle of Santiago, Admiral R. Evans was strolling down Broadway. As it was yet some time before service he entered Grace Church and seated him-elf in a pew to rest. Before long a ' ell dressed man came in and seated him elf in the ame pew. The man be­came rc., tles - and . looked at Evans with manife t ' anno ' ance. At length he took a card, wrote upon it and re ques efl the ~ lier t~ deliver it to the man at the end of the pew. The card beal ing the name of one of T ew Yo­rk's four hundred, cal'lied this inform­ation, " 1 pay $ 100 for the exclusive u ' e of thi pew". The word exclusive as 1d rlined. " Fjghtingo Bob" drew o It hi own card and sent back with this reply, " You pay too damn much". - Ex Number XXVIII THE NEW ATHLETIC YEAR. July 1st heralded the beginning of a new athletic year which means a clean slate for all ships, including the good ship HOUSTON, and now that we have as permanent a crew as our sister ships we should take full advan­tage and boost the ship right to the top in the General Excellence Trophy race. As some of you have noticed in recent editions of Naval puglications the Houston scored 60.0 points' out of a possible 760, whereas the Salt Lake City, the winner of the General Excel­lance trophy, scored 489.5 out of the same possible points, which goes to prove that there is always a way to be up there despite ships movements, etc. With the neclues of a strong Basket baH squad still with us, a baseball team that has finally found its stride, a wrestling squad in the making, se­veral members of last years mit art­ists working out regularly, the pistol and rifle team working out, lots of fine materieal for rowing, and plenty of time to become fully conditioned before the official competition begins, it looks like the Houston will follow in the footsteps of her snappy engine­ers and make a name in athletics dur­ing the coming year. There will be many obstacles and dissappointments to overcome but they will seem trivial if the objective is obtained, so lets start off with a vill to lead the fleet. We have the materieal and can come through with flying colors and the iron man as well.
