Transcript Volume II. .\ uk Bay, Alaska, July 27, 1935 SIGHTSEEING A D LIBERTY u. s. s. iOUSTON THE ROTARY CLUB CUP PERSO NEL NEW RATING QUOTA --~*-- Examinations are now being held for the following ratings allotted to the HOUSTON. Latour, L. K. FClc. to CFC. -- to*- ­NEW SHIPMATES -- w-- DA CE I CORDOVA On the evening prior to our sailing, the city of Cordova gave a dance for the crew at the Elk's Hall which was tastefully decorated for the occasion. -- h'-- Continued on page four In October 1930, this cup was pre­sented to the ship along with the sil­ver service, the colors, a rowing cup, a swimming cup an several other art­icles, representative of the great inter­est shown by the City of Houston in this vessel. The Rotary Club cup is emblematic of supremacy in SRBP each year by anyone of the turrets or either the port of starboard AA bat­tery. The cup is now on display in the 3rd Div comp't having been won by them three years in four the cup has been up for competition, the 5th Div winning it once. In less than two months another SRBP will be fired and, who knows, the cup may find a new Div's name inscribed on it. The 1st, 2nd, and 4th Div's having never won it yet are out to take the cup as well as winning the white " E". N0.- 3 turret is coming on the line, showing good form, but No. 1 and 2 turrets are looking like champs since they have their regular crews together again, while if the vigor shown on the boat deck is to be considered indicat­ive of the attitude the AA crews have toward winning the trophy, the fan­tail turret is due for some stiff com­petition. 4 - F2c. 1 - SK2c.

Within a short time 42 of our ship­lI1ate~ will have reaped the rewards of diligent and careful study. Al­though not as many rates were assign­ed thi vessel as had been hoped for, there are enough to put many stogies in circulation. --* 0*- ­UP THE LADDER The blase attitude of so many to­ward sightseeing, was not in evidence during our cruise in Alaskan water~. Facts and figures prove conclusively that those who made the trips to Copper River to see the famous Childs and Miles glaciers and to Anchorage were amply repaid for the time spent. Approximately one hundred and twenty enlisted men and ten officers were on the special Copper River & Northwestern R. R. train when it pul­led out of Cordova on the forty- eight mile run over the " Iron Trail', so well known to all lovers of the lusty North­land stories written by Rex Beach. This was on Monday, July 22nd. On Wednesday, the 24th, another larger group made the interesting excursion to Anchorage from Seward. One bun­dred and fifty- four enlisted men and twelve officers boarded the Alaskan Railways special to ride through one hundred and twelve miles of natural wonderland, to a little city which makes up for its location by being the home of thoroughly progresive and cordially hospitable people. This last, is equally true of all the folks we have contacted in the three cities visited: Cordova, Seward and Anchorage. To most, the trip north held little of anticipative interest. Frankly we thought it would be a rather dull cruise. We found to our surprise and consequent pleasure that our il­lusions concerning Alaska were just tb, at, and based on everything but act­~ Uty.
