T* AL SUR* GICAL* WORK Perhaps every member of the cl'~ w did not receive dental treatment whIle Commander H. F. Delmore ( DC) vas aboard but it is interesting to note the amount of work accomplished by him dUl'ing the period January 9 to Feb­ruary 2 , 1936. Due to the type of duty thi. vessel has had during the past year many member of the new were in urgent need of dental treat­ment. For the HOUSTO alone there were a total of 1119 treatments ad­mini teredo Of this number 153 men had dental work completed. When one considers the complement of the ship and the short time Doctor Delmore wa' aboard it i short of remarkable to know this number of men could have teeth in perfect repair. For all the ;;; hips afloat in the navy yard at Mare Island during the period Doctor Delmore wa aboard this ve. ­. · el he accomplished 270 tl'eatments completin~ dental treatment in 313 cases. It i safe to say this amount of work is far in excess of that ac­compli.. hed by anyone dental urgeon practicing in civilian life over a simi­liar period. It just wa n't our luck to have Doctor Delmore continue aboard the HOU TO:- J but the benefit derived while he \ Va.. aboard, was g I' eat enough for him to be remcmbered for ~ omc time. .., .. Th~ folio villl.~ named men in the belo\\' listed rating, have completed their training cour.. es for the next superior rating during the pa t week: Creech, R. F. PhM3., US.. ( for Phd1c.)

Fleet has published to the fleet hi.. letter of congratulation.. to the coordinating committee and the per­.. onnel of the individual vessel' for their labor' in making the Christma::; Partie throughout the fleet a success. The report dealing with the partie' held on board vessels in the San Pedro Area indicates that 2,454 children and 2,452 adults related to the mem­b(') · . of the various ship's companies and 04 needy children, accompanid bv 60 adults, were cnteI · tained. The a; nount e.' pended by all vessels in the San Pedro Area was $ 13,058,15. The number of children entertained at Christmas Parties on board s hip s based at San Diego was 1,689 and the approximate amount e. · pcnded was $ H, 5; U. 00. The grand total of $ 19.616.15 care­fully expended with a high degree of efficiency, a minimum of duplication, and a maximum of the generou spirit of Chri tma is a manife tation on the part of the officers and men of the ves. els of the '. S. FLEET in the~ e : I'eu_ which be. peak, ' ymp: Ithetic understanding and the traditional ge­nerosity of • Tavy pen; onnel to the y ung and the underpriviledg- ed. · Although the HOUSTO. wa in the • ' av~ r Yal'i during the holiday period. the spirit of Christmas was not IUl: king. This vessel entertained GO orphan children from the Sacra­)' lento Orphanage. The sum of $ 116.30 was collected and expended for this purpose. CIIILEAN Cl'RRE.
