RELIEF. • • 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 railroad concerned. 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". U. S. S. Houston- 3- 28- 36- 800. THE CRUISE ( Continued on Page Four) 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. MORE ABOUT . T.. H. I. S, NEXT WEEK 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 the world. 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.
