Number XXI --::-- A GOOD SHIPMATE PASSES ON Lester Adcock, CWT., Dies As Result of Accidental Fall.

The fact that the Officers and Men of our avy made a favorable impress­ion upon our Chilean hosts is shown by the following dispatch received from the Acting Commander in Chief of the hilean Fleet, Admiral Alvarez, " To Admiral Hart, U. S. S. CHICAGO. Please do us the favor of accepting the very best wi hes of the Chilean Navy for a happy return of the Fleet under your command. Request that you interpret the above to all the personnel under your command to the effect that they have completely won the affections of all the personnel of the entire Chilean Navy." Another dispatch from Almirante Latorre, ( Commanding Officer, La­torre) expressing much the same senti­ment is as follows: " The Admiral, Commanding Officers and men of the Chilean Fleet wish Admirals Hart and Brinser and the Officers and Men under their command a happy voyage and success. It has been a pleasure to receive their visit to Chile". Admiral Hart goes further to say, " Our departure from Valparaiso marks the completion of an important mission which the Commander 0 f ( Continued on Page Four) The date of arrival in Long Beach has been stepped up from 17 June to 16 June. According to present plans, we will arrive in Long Beach some time during the fore( loon of Tuesday, 16 June. The rea on for this change is due to the fact that we will pro­vision ship on the 18th. ER GUESTS We lost a mighty good friend and a fine shillmate when injuries suffered in all accidental fall caused the death of Lester " Pop" Adcock, Chief Watertender. We didn't know hi name was Lester, for he was " Pop" to all hl! nds, and everyone was " Bud" to him. Though he had been with us a comparativel~ short time, he had made many friends in his quiet, unassuming way. \ Ve shall miss his familiar figure and his in epar­able pipe about the deck, for though it is true he wasn't the talkative kind, we all knew and liked him. We feel sure hi record in the Book of Life was just a good as hb Naval record, so it is with con­fidence we wish him God peed on tiL Other Side. Realizing the great sorrow the Ilremature death of a good hus­band and father brought his family, it is with deepest sincerety that we extend our heartfelt sympathy to his wife and children in their be­reavement. The HOUSTON Ship's Company. HO STO MEN DI The Damage Control Practice for this year has been cancelled. Instead, on the date scheduled for this practice, 25 June, we will have our Annual Military Inspection. In view of the fact that the practice has been called off, much more attention will be paid to the appearance of the crew and ship. Every man will be expected to have practically a complete new uni­form by this date. In drawing small stores, between now and then, every one should bear this in mind. It is expected that for the rest of our voyage to Long Beach, we will encounter vel' y good weather. If this is the case, there is no reason why the ship shouldn't be in a per­fect state of cleanliness. All hands will work to bring about this con­dition. ..... VALPARAISO- THE CITY ON A MOUNTAINSIDE HOUSTON'S DAMAGE CONTROL PRACTICE CANCELLED Early one blustering winter's night, an American sailor from the Asiatic Fleet Flagship stood at the bar in the Astor Hotel in Shanghai, sip­ping hot rum punch and thanking his lucky stars for the warmth and cozi­ness of the famous taproom. Outside shivering rickshaw coolies tried to wrap their rags do es about their scrawny bodies and huddled in door­ways to escape the icy fingers of wintery winds. The Chinese bartend­er's chattering Pidgin English had begun to bore the sailor and he wished for other company. In answer to his wish the door burst ( Continued on Page Four)
