Transcript Volume III * .. s. s... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Enroute Long Beach, Calif., 13 June 1936. Number XXII JUNE 17, SIXTH COMMISSIONING ANNIVERSARY SIX YEARS OF SERVICE REVEALS MUCH GLORY --::-- On that eventful day, September 7, 1929, when Miss Elizabeth Holcombe christened the ten thousand ton cru­iser, named after the city of which her father was at that time mayor; namely, Houston, Texas, she dispatch­ed a ship on her way to many wide­spread and colorful adventures on many seas. Her duties have called the HOU­STON to far flung shores and in the short span of six years she has cover­ed herself with more glory than many another ship can boast of. Few have flown the flags of as many dignitaries as has the HOUSTON. Mter her commissioning o~ June 17, 1930 the HOUSTON made her memo­rable shakedown cruise to Europe, visiting England, France and the Netherlands. Upon her return to the U. S., she paid her first visit to her natal city, Houston, Texas. On 14 January, 1931 the HOU­STON sailed for the Asiatic Station via the Panama Canal, Honolulu, and Guam to take over the duties of flag­ship on that station. During this tour of duty Admiral McVay, Admiral Taylor and Admiral Upham flew their flags on the HOUSTON. In September 1931 one of the worst floods in the history of the Yangtze Kiang river occured. The HOUSTON steamed upriver about 600 miles to Hankow to assist in rescue work, re­turning to Shanghai about October 5.

Each person is allowed articles to of one hundred dollars in value. By value is meant its actual value, roughly wholesale or appraised value and not necessarily what you paid for it. How­ever if you do not know the value you may show on your declaration slip the actual amount you paid for each article. Perfume comes under a special class. You are only allowed one bottle of each brand, under the following conditions. Merchandise including perfumery which at the time of entry into the United States bears a trade- mark registered and recorded in conformity with the provision of section 526 of the tariff act of 1930 is prohibited importation and is subject to seizure and forfeiture to the United States unless written consent of the trade­mark owner is filed at the time of entry. The following companies have filed their consent with the Treasury De­partment, under condition, that the ( Continued on Page Three) OFFICERS DETACHED Upon our arri~~ l in Long Beach many of our officers will be detached or relieved. Comdr. C. N. Ingraham will be de­tached about 27 June, after Admiral's Inspection, and has orders to take charge of the Branch Hydrographic Office in Seattle, Washington. His re­lief will be Lt. Comdr. Lloyd E. Clif­ford who now has duty at the Naval Academy. Lt. Comdr. J. M. Connally has re­ceived orders to command the U. S. S. DALLAS However, he won't be de­tached until properly relieved which will probably be soon after Admiral's Inspection. Lt. Comdr. J. M. Easter ( SC) will be relieved by Lt. Comdr. Ray E. Snedaker ( SC) who now has duty at the Navy Yard, Mare Island. Mr. Easter will go to the Navy Yard, Bremerton for duty. This relief will probably not be effective until we reach Seattle. Mr. Easter has been aboard since March 1934 at which time he relieved Lt. Comdr. Zimmer­man ( SC). Lt. H. D. Felt will be detached 19 June and will go to VJ Squadron 2- F ( U. S. S. WRIGHT) for duty. His relief will be Lt. ( jg) T. H. Dahl who now has duty with V. F. Squad­ron 6B ( U. S. s. SARATOGA). On 17 June Lt. J. M. Robinson will be detached from the HOUSTON and will go to the U S. S.
