Transcript Volume III * --. s. s... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Long- Beach, Calif. March 14, 1936 Number X HOUSTON SIGNALMEN HEAVY CRUISER V. O. WIN TESTS HOUSTON TO VISIT VALPARAISO According to press reports sixteen naval vessels will visit Valparaiso, Chile and Callao, Peru. The HOU­STON, flagship of Rear Admiral Thomas C. Hart, along with the CHESTER and LOUISVILLE of Cru­DivFour, under the command of Rear Admiral Henry L. Brisner, will visit Valparaiso during the period 28 May to 2 June. Meanwhile, the Louisville, New Or­leans and the San Francisco of Cru­Div Six, under the command of Rear Admiral C. P. Snyder; the three ships of CruDiv Seven, the Astoria, Minne­apolis, and the Tuscaloosa, under the command of Rear Admiral A. P. Fair­field, accompanied by the six des­troyers, Farragut, Alwyn, Dewey, Mc­Donough, Hull and Worden, command­ed by Rear Admiral Sinclair Cannon, will visit Callao, Peru. Navy Department officials say that the propose. d South American Cruise this summer has a two fold purpose namely, to train the crews and as a gesture of friendship to our South American neighbors. This South American visit will be made as a part of the annual maneuvers off the west coast of Central America. After com­pletion of the maneuvers most of the ships, it is planned , will return to California ports. It is probable that the HOUSTON will get the flag in the vicinity of Panama before proceeding to Callao Continued on page four HOUSTON WINS AGAIN! The report of the official standings of the cruisers of the Scouting Force was received on board recently and the HOUSTON made an enviable re­cord in the Visual Operators division of the competition. The standings with the scores made are as follows: 1. HOUSTON 35.2 2. NEW ORLEANS 33.8 3. ASTORIA 33.0 4. NORTHAMPTON 33.0 5. INDIANAPOLIS 32.7 6. LOUISVILLE 32.2 7. SALT LAKE CITy 31.8 8. CHESTER 30.9 9. PORTLAND :............. 30.8 10. TUSCALOOSA 30.7 11. MINNEAPOLIS 30.6 12. PENSACOLA 29.7 13. CHICAGO 29.2 14. SAN FRANCISCO 29.0 The above scores represent the total points obtained out of a possible 40. The V. O. competition consists of sending an. d receiving blinker and semaphore. In addition it embraces procedure which defines the method in which despatches are handled. The fact that the HOUSTO stood one in the competition becomes more signi­ficant when we realize that our ship has been out of actual employment with the Fleet for several months. Congratulations to the Signal Gang for their success in spite of the handi­cap which they have experienced by the exigencies of independent duty.

Despatch orders were received from the Commandant Twelfth Naval District at 0100 - Sunday - February 23rd requiring the yard to send sal- Co- ntinu- ed o- n pag- e four BLUE BONNET TO HAVE NEW EDITOR The Blue Bonnet is indeed fortu­nate in securing for its new editor Chaplain W. W. Pierce. Chaplain Pierce has had years of experience in editing ships' papers. Before com­ing to the HOUSTON, he was the editor of the MELVILLE'S " Job Ord­er". This paper has gained the repu­tation throughout the Fleet as one of the best ship's papers published today. Before going to the Melville, he edited the " Newport Recruit" and, under his guidance, gained no little fame. Chaplain Pierce will devote his all to the paper, and as the head of an already excellent staff, the Blue Bon­net should soar to a new height in the ranks of ships' papers. En ign Mackenzie, outgoing editor, says that he is retiring to a life of Engineering and Gunnery, but that he will still contribute from time to time.
