To his Staff we also extend a welcome, and may they not find us wanting as a flag­ship. In addition to the title Commander Cruisers, Scouting Force, Admiral Laning holds titles of Commander Cruisers, U. S. Fleet, and Command­er Cruiser Division Five. To assist him in the tasks involved with these titles are the following officers:- Capt. Paul P. Blackburn, Chief of Staff. Commander Oscar Smith, Flag Operations Officer. Commander A. M.
