Transcript .- s. s... 0 .. 5....- 0.. -- Volume HI OFFICER PERSONNEL Lieutenant ( jg) D. A. Harris, U. S. N., has just received orders de­taching him in June from the U. S. S. HOUSTO. T. He is being ordercd to the U. S. S. CHAUMONT for duty. Ensign Joseph W. Williams, Jr. U. S. N., has received orders to take his examinations for promotion to Lieutenant ( Junior Grade). Second Lieutenant Henry B. Cain, Jr., U. S. M. C., was ordered to the Fleet Machinc Gun School on board the U. S. S. UTAH for temporary duty under instruction. The school convened on 3 Fe. b. r. u. ary. , TRAINING In order to stimulate divi! iional com­pctitive training and to influence men who are ambitious and deserving- to prepare them~ elves for the next hig- h­er rating, the Educational Department has recided to publish statistice from time to time w} lich will show the re­lative standing of Divisions, as a whole, in percentage attainment. The data given in this article is the number of men in each division who have completed training courses and whose training officers have sub­mitted the results of their examina­tion to the avigator, during the week. It is obvious that some divisions will have more untrained men in their division than others and, therefore, the relative standing of those divisions will appear to be hjgher than other division but, it is planned to develope a system which will show the number Continued on page four Mare Island, Calif., February 8, 1936 KNOW YOUR NAVY Vessels of the United States and Asiatic fleets are nearly 20 per cent undermanned. During 1935 it has been possible to man vessels to only 81 percent of their enlisted war complement. There has been a gradual upbuilding of the en­listed personnel of the Navy since 1933, but it has not kept pace with the needs of the Fleet. While the situ­ation has improved somewhat during the current fiscal year it is still far from satisfactory. Reduction of al­10\ ' ances of larger combatant ships below 85 percent of complement is dangerous to the national defense. In the year just closed an average enlisted strength of 85,510 was main­tained. To approach the 85 percent of complement, a total of 86,615 enlisted men would have been necessary. For the fiscal year 1936, an average en­listed strength of 86,0.... 0 has been ap­propiated for. E" tudies indicate that 7941 line offi­ccrs are necessary to fully man the treaty Navy now authorized and build­ing. It has been further determined that 7021 line officers. supplemented by aviation cadets, are necessary to man essential battle stations on Navy \" escls if these ships are to be main­tained in readiness for war. There is now pending before the 74th Congress a bill that increases the authorized strength of the Navy from 5499 to 6531. This increase is not adequate but it is a definite step in the right direction. Further increase in the line officer strength is imperative. Continued on page four Number VI RECOMMENDATIONS FOR AD­VANCEMENT TO CPO DESIRED BY BUREAU ;\ lust Reach Bureau Not Later Than 1 April, 1936. Recently the Bureau of Navigation sent out a circular letter, authorizing Commanders of certain forces, Base­For included, to recommend eligible first class petty officers for advance­ment to Chief Petty Officer. Even though a small number of ratings are included in this quota, it is another reminder to our eligible Houstonites to be always on the alert for the big opportunity. Opportunity is knocking at the door of our studious and ambitious ship­mates quite frequently these days. Continued." on... page two PERSONNEL Received Yarbrough, P. E., GMlc: from U. S. S. NITRO.
