C., 23 October, 1935. ORDER Knowing full well the hard, unre­mitting work required of the ship's company to make the Presidential Cruise a success, the Commanding Officer takes pleasure in quoting to each officer and man the following excerpt from a letter written by the President: " Our cruise from San Diego to Charleston has been a splendid one. I have enjoyed it tremendously. I have noted with satisfaction the quiet, orderly, and efficient man­ner in which each member of the ship's company has performed his allotted task. I request that you express to all hands my thanks and best wishes for many mOl'e pleasant cruises." The Commanding Officer desires that each and every member of the ship's company shall feel that his own efforts contributed toward the success of the cruise and that the praise bestowed by the President be­longs to all. G. E. BAKER Captain, U. S. Navy Commanding ••• Friday afternoon, at 1400, Bunnel V. L. S2c of the 2nd. was opera~ ed on for acute appendicitus, and is now resting easiiy. Cood luck, Bunnel. " NAVY DAY" On October 27. 1775, there was in­troduced in the Continental Congress the first resolution to authorize Ame­rican Warships. October 27th is also the birthday of one of the United Sta­tes' greatest Presidents- THEODORE ROOSEVELT. This President, needing a " Big Club" and ever ready to use its' threat as a means to call the blUff of other Nations, exerted his utmost endeavors to make our Fleet into a real " First Line of Defense". His in­fluence is felt to this day and when­ever Navy men foregather, his name is mentioned as the one whose in­fluence predominates in the building up of material and morale of our mo­dern Navy. For these reasons, the 27th day of October has become known as ' NAVY DAY".

In the early days before the Panama Canal was started Porto Bello was the chief sea port of Panama. This spot abounds in history and romance. It was orginally estab­lished and heavily fortified by the Spanish during the latter part of the sixteenth century. The remains of Fort San Fernando on the north can still be seen in a fair state of preservation. Lead bullets can, to this day, be dug out of dungeon walls of this Fort. There is another fort to the westward of the village Contin~ ed on Page Four. PRESIDENT VISITS S. AN BLAS INDIANS Late Thursday afternoon, 17 Oct. 1935, the HOUSTON dropped her an­chor in San Bias Bay. Immediately the boats were in the water, the Presi­dent and small party made an excur­sion trip to the near by island Indian villages. Two of the nearer islands were circled by the boats but the short tropical dusk made a landing unfea: sa­ble. However, the islands and their inhabitants appeared so picturesque that it was decided to make a more thoro visit the next day for the pur­pose of becoming better acquainted with the indians and obtaining souvi­ners. The next day about ten, three boats bearing the President, his party, and a group of ship's officers and men left the ship on a most interest­ing excursion of the villages. The first island visited was about five miles from the ship. After a brief visit to this Island during which time every­one browsed about to see how the people lived and bought or traded for sou. veniers and various trinkets, some SIX or seven other villages were visited. At each island the indians came down to the boats to barter and sell their wares. More information on this subject will be featured.. n. ex. t week. HOUSTON TO VISIT NEW YORK After leaving Hampton Roads the HOUSTON has been ordered to pro­ceed to Navy Yard, New York for up­keep leave and liberty.
