Transcript .•-.• Number XXXVI ..... ... e ... U. S. S. DALE ON SHAKEDOWN CRUISE The HOUSTON successfully com­pleted its Short Range Battle Practice on Tuesday, 10 September. Regulat­ions prohibit the publishing of the number of shots and hits in a paper of this kind. Suffice to say that the practice was run off smoothly and there were no casualties interrupting the volume of fire. The whole practice was completed in less than three hours. Regardless of the !; core, the Gunnery Officer is especially pleased with the precision of the loading and the absence of material casualties. The absence of material casualties re­flects much credit upon the officers and men charged with the upkeep of the battery. It is believed that Short Range Practice gets us off on the right foot for a sucessful Gunnery Year. All hands deserve credit for their hard work in preparing for and firing of this practice. The Destroyer Dale under the com­mand of Commander William A. Corn, U. S. Navy, left New York for Eur­ope on August 20th and anived at Southampton, England on August 30th before returning to the United States, the Dale will visit Naples and Leg­horn, Italy; Villefranche, France; and Valencia, Spain. The stay in most of those ports will be for six days. On October 19th, the new Destroyer is due to arrive at Newport, Rhode Is­land. Long Beach, California, Sept. 14, 1935 PORT HOUSTON SENDS ANNI- \: HOUSTON'S S. R. B. P. A SUCCESS VERSARY CO. N.. G.. R. ATULATIONS Last week a small article appeared in the " Blue Bonnet" mentioning the sixth anniversary of the launching of our ship. On the same day, the follow­ing two messages were received from Houston, Texas: Houston Tex Captain Guy E Baker Today marks the sixth anniversary christening and launching of our citys namesake of which all Houston is so intensely proud please accep~ for your­self and ships company this radioed expression of abiding interest in your welfare hearty congratulations upon winning the coveted white E and com­pliments to Blue Bonnet staff upon first anniversary of publication God­speed Oscar F Holcomb Mayor A D Simpson chairman cruiser Houston quote Captain G E Baker msg Hou­ston on anniversary launching and commissioning good ship Houston please accept for yourself and ships company sincere and cordial felici­tations this city and its citizenship stop record of vessel from commis­sioning to this day so outstanding as to command respect and admiration of city whose name it bears stop many happy returns and our kindest regards to all hands signed George A Hill Jr. chairman military affairs committee Hauston Chamber of Com­merce unquote.

Gun Number Two brought glory to themselves and their ship this past Tuesday by winning the coveted Gunnery Efficiency " E". This " E" represents a lot of hard training and cooperation on the part of the crew. Similiar to a basketball team where the forwards can't score unless they are fed by the guards and center, neither can the pointers and trainers make hits in " E" time unless the load­ing crew functions like a well oiled machine. In addition to the actual crew, due credit must be given to the Gunners Mates and Electricians who keep the gun in mechanically perfect condition, thereby, preventing any mechanical dearrangement which might mar an otherwise perfect score. Members of Gun Two's crew are Permental, gun captain; Nickel, Cal­houn; Stoddard; Freeman; Royal, Reid; McDonald, Farley; Rudloff, Sumstine and Conley, Gunner's mate. Gun Two, we congratulate you. Monday morning, 16 Sept., about 1000, the HOUSTON will depart from her Long Beach anchorage for San Diego. During her two weeks visit to San Diego, she will anchor in ' Berth 59". " Berth 59" is just off the Broad­way Street landing. This will offer a wonderful opportunity for the HOU­STON per~ onnel to visit the Exposit­ion. ..-'..
