SPECIAL RO ND- TRIP FARES
The following is quoted from a letter
from the Commander- in- Chief
United States Fleet: '
" In connection with the special rates
granted to personnel of the fleet on
leave, as outlined, the agents of the
Santa Fe, Southern Pacific, and Union
Pacafic Railroads, have informed the
Commander- in- Chief that , effective 4
March 1936, tickets will be on sale
daily and carry a limit of forty- five
days. A. numbel · of eastern cities have
been added to the list of those contained
in previous notices and information
concerning these cities may
be obtained at the ticket offices of the
The representatives of these railroad
companies also report that in
a number of case' men on leave apply
for tickets without the Identification
certificates which were distributed to
the Fleet subsequent to the publication
of notice publi hed in October
1935. This entails unnecessary correspondence
and delay in the purchasing
of the tickets at the reduced rates.
All men desiring to avail themselves
of the reduced rates should be furnished
with a complete Identification
Certificate prior to dt! parture from
thcir ships on leave".

The above mentioned schedule is
only " a shot into the dark". \ Ve, of
cour e, can in no sence be certain
that this schedule will be followed out.
Weare certain, however, that sight-eeing
parties should get underway
as soon as possible after our arrival
at Valparaiso owing to the fact that
our stay in that port is quite limited.
The cost per man for the variou'
trips will depend largely upon thc
number of men making the trip. Tho
mas Cook & Son will advise us in the
very near future in regard to the cost.
We suggest that all hands " stick
together" because in that way better
facilities for transportation may be
had and also a lower rate may be obtainable.

PRECIO S METAL
It is estimated that the total production
of gold in the world, since
the di covery of America in 1492, Lone
billion ounces, valued at twenty
billion dollars. About half of this ha.
been produced ince 1848. The Transvaal,
Australia, the United States.
Canada, and Russia combined have
contributed more than one- half of the
total. Since a large part of the gold
has been used in the Arts or 10. t.
about ten billion dollars remain as
the monetary basis of the currency of
If all the gold were melted in one
larg' lump, it would make a cube of
solid gold measuring thirty- eig'ht and
a half feet. But to extract this relatively
small amount of metal from
g'J'avel and gold bearing veins it was
necE's. ary to mine, as a conservative
estimate, enough earth, gravel, and
rock to cover the fourteen thousand
acres of Manhattan Island to a depth
of thl'ee hundred feet.
