SECOND PRESIDENTIAL CRUISE
It is quite unusual to have the pleasure
of making two Presidential cruises
on the same ship, since the Presidential
Yacht was striken from the
list of Naval Vessels.
One would gather from the newspaper
articles that we are to visit
some strange land heretofore not
visited by a white man.
The San Diego Union states that
the President is to make two stops
on his way to San Diego. One at
Boulder Dam which is nearing completion.
The second stop will probably
be for luncheon at Los Angeles.
The President is not expected to make
a stop at the American Legion National
Convention in St. Louis due to
the volume of work requiring his personal
attention in Washington.
The local press did not state at what
port on the East Coast the President
and party would dis- embark. .... .,
Chief Electrician's Mate, Arthur C.
Ma~ love USN., accepted his appointment
and was sworn in as Electrician
on 17 September, 1935.
The Blue Bonnet wishes to take this
opportunity to congratulate Mr. Manlove.
His shipmates trust that his tour
on the Asiatic Station will be as pleasant
as our cruise has been with him
on the HOUSTON. ....
