Transcript * --. s. S. .. o ..~.......... * Long Beach, Calif., April 11, 1936 Number XIV THE CRUISE There is no better time than the present for making plans in regard to sight- seeing trips in Chile. It would be well to reserve one full pay- day for this purpose,- leave, it on the books until arrival at Valparaiso. It will be in excellent safe- keeping therc. A trip to the lake region in Chile may be undertaken, depending, of « lOune, upon permission being grant­ed and a suffieient number desiring to make the trip. The lake region to which a party may be taken is about 160 Kilometers distant from Valpeuillo. A llpeeial train may be chartered, leaving Valparaiso about 0800 and returning about 1900. Quite likely lunch from the ship will be taken tor all hands making the trip. . Such an exeursion should prQve to be a very pleallant day's outing at a very nominal expensc. r • II. SHOPPING Men who recently finished training at San Diego and who have never been in a foreign country, should bear in mind that the old adage holds cood everywhere, " you can't get something for nothing". Usually it is wille to go to a reputable' establish­ment and make your purchases. " Dick­ering" here and there and finally striking a. bargain frequently proves ' to be anything but a bargain. You will never be able to acquire an article at a price less than its real worth­usually more. Those people have been in busine s for many years and they are highly qualified salesmen. Keep one full pay- day OR the oo() ks! EASTER BUNDAY Tomorrow is probably the most widely observed day on the calendar. Thousands of messages will be sent and received throughout the land. A message should be sent home today by every man on the HOUSTON. They will be glad to get it. Weare always interested in seeing the mail orderly come aboard. They are equally inter­ested in seeing the postman arrive, bringing a letter from you, or the Western Union messenger bringing a telegram of greetings from you. Keep the home ties I They are worthwhile and will always be, under all conditions everywhere. ••• LT.- COMDR. ENGLIS REPORTED Lieutenant Commander Thomas B. Englis, U. S. NAVY, relieved Lieu­tenant Commander M. B. Arnold, U. S. NAVY, as Navigator on 7 April.
