Every m a TJ seemed to have cooperated to his full­est extent in doing his part to put the ship in a state of material perfection. Short handed as we were, the HOU­STON Thursday pL'esented an ex­cellent appearance. This splendid ~ pi)' it of whole hearted cooperation is the thing that make each and every one of us proud to say, " the HOU­STON, that's my ship". G. E. Baker Captain, U. S. N. Commanding ..-- e- THE S1'.\ TE FLOWER OF TEXAS --::-- From time to time, members of the crew are heard asking-" Why is the ship's paper called ' The Blue Bon­neL' "? Late in 1930, when the ship's paper was becoming a reality, a poll was helJ for the purpose of selecting a name for the ne'. v- born service paper. 1any and var'ed names were sub­mitted. Since the HOUSTON is named after the largest city in the State of Texas, it seems only proper to select a name pertaining to that great tate. With this thought in mind the select­ion committee elected the name of the State Flower, the " Blue Bonnet". An excellent selection ince it is truly representative of the state just as the HOUSTOJ. is the proud bearer of the name of one of her greatest cities. ( Continued on Page Four) --::-- The " Blue Bonnet" in behalf of the otficers and men of the HOUSTON wishes to take this opportunity to wel­come aboard and wish Vice Admiral Tarrant, his Staff and the Flag Per­' onnel, a happy cruise.
