Transcript Volume III * " 5. S... 0-.. 5-.- 0.. * Enroute Panama, c. Z., May 2, 1936 Number XVII PULL TOGETHER --::-- -::- Let's Keep The " White " E" - ..- It is being commonly rumored that since there are just two months left in the current competitive year it is impossible for the HOUSTON to re­gain first place for the white " E". We want FIRST PLACE and we want to go on record as saying: " liVe aren't licked until the race is run! Remember what the philosopher said about people who quit when the going gets tough in the home stretch? If that applies to us now or any other time we're not living up to the record set by the " Up- and- at-' em" HOUSTON crews of the past six years. In other words, let's " PULL TOGETHER" and win this race in the same manner as in the past. That is all it takes to put us back in first place for the Engineering Competitive Year, 1935- 36. A great many men have had the winning of the white " E" sincerely at heart and have done their bit unstintingly toward that end; it is a bit discouraging to find that some few of their shipmates fail to cooperate. To put anything over it is only natural that one group, no matter how diligent will fail if others sit on the sidelines and fail to root. In this instance " rooting" should take a practical form: :::. AVE WATER AND ELECTRICITY. There isn't one man on this ship who doesn't waste at least two gal­lons of water every day, and nearly every man uses more than is actually needed- say about two gallons. Ima­gine what a saving that would be if each of the crew would cut out ( Continued on Page Four) SHORE DUTY --::-- The Bureau has noticed in many cases men who are on the waiting list for Chief. In selecting men those who are on the eligible list for pro­motion for Chief Petty Officer are passed over if their date of request is prior to the time they are placed on the list for Chief Petty Officer. This is done to avoid cancellation of orders, as in most cases men in this status have requested this cancellation until they qualify for permanent appoint­ment. Likewise Chief Petty Officers who are serving under acting appoint­ments are not ordered to shore duty until they have completed one year at sea. In the event one is ordered to shore duty and is advanced to CPO, he may, request sea duty which will be approved. In this connection it must be remembered it will be con­sidered that he did a normal tour of shore duty. Chief petty officers serving under acting appointments who go to shore duty prior to completion of necessary sea service for permanent, will have to serve the full time ashore and re­quests for sea duty to qualify for permanent should not be submiD. ­ted, as they wi. 1ll1 n. ot be approved. A WARNING It is not thought too early to warn those who have not made liberties in Panama, that there is no Long Beach high fog to keep the sun off the drink­ing man's brow. Many is the sailor who, as a preliminary to seeing the sights of Panama, has paused for a few quick ones and upon emergence ( Continued on Page Four) LIEUTENANT ( JG) LYONS ORDERED DETACHED --::-- Lieutenant ( jg) Charles M. Lyons, jr., our popular signal officer has received orders to the U. S. S. BALCH, which is nearing completion at Quincy, Mass. Lieut. Lyons will report on board the BUSHNELL in Panama for transportation to the east coast. The BALCH is scheduled to make a shake-" down cruise to Europe. Lieut. ( jg) Lyons, a graduate of the Class of ' 32, reporte, d aboard the HOUSTON in March 1934. During his year in Communications he has done much to further the efficiency of the signal force and the Communication Department in general. He has con­tributed much to the general welfare and happiness of the ship with his genial smile and ready humor. Boston being his " home town", we are of the opinion that this duty will afford a welcome opportunity for him to renew old acquaintances, ard all hands join in wishing him th. e.. h.. a. ppiest of cruises. PISCATORIAL NEWS --::-- The Ship's Service Store now has a complete stock of fishing gear, in­cluding lines, poles, reels, hooks, sink­ers, and gut leaders. For the price of a couple of liberties ( estimated $ 8.00) a would be Issac Walton can acquire a full outfit. Panama waters are famed among sport fishermen, for the variety and size of fish caught in them. Heres your chance to engage in a millionaire's sport unless you're like the seaman who was heard to re­mark, " Why catch a big fish when there are no cameras to photograph him".
