Transcript * " 5. S. .. 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * ........ Number V Our streets are full of cars and hacks. For Pier 15 they're bound, Sir; Where fair maids smile on handsome Jacks, And the rest they hang around, Sir. Her crew look tame in braids of gold. But here is a tip and a hunch: There's " bottled death" in her after hold. And she packs a " terrible punch." YANKEE* DOOD* LE UP* TO DATE Due to the fact that the staff of this paper followed the steps of the rest of the crew while in Houston, we are coming to press a little late. Of course we realize that there should be no excuse for this unpar­donable sin, but we hate to let it go without some mention. APOLOGIA * * * The above contribution was sub­mitted to Captain Woodson by on - old man of 66 years. This aged gentle­man has a son serving on the U. S. S. IDAHO and is more than proud of his navy and his ship, named after his home. We tender our appreciat­ion of this gesture to Mr. Paul Poin­ter and say, " Thanks a lot." We'll drink her health the rest of the .... eek. And wish her well all the time. Sir; As she sails the seas. new laurels to seek, And this is the end of my rhyme, Sir. .- 1-. Six hundred feet of bristIiRg guns, And speed she has a plenty: And in her crew, our Lone Star 80n's, They number now just 20. The cruiser HOUSTON steamed to port, In coat of paint all new, Sir; She'll have a week of kingly sport, Then bid our port adeiu. Sir. The lightening sleeps in her fighting top, The vengence of Bell ' neath the wave; For ships must fight ' till wars all stoP. The " Stars and Stripes" to save. \.> Continued on page four Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. On Monday evening at 11 o'clock, at a ball given in honor of Admiral Laning, Captain Woodson and officers of the ship, we became the recipient of a portrait of General Sam Houston which was copied from a lithograph, copyrighted in 1852, found by Mr. C. L. Black of Austin, Texas, by accident, in " Ye Old Print Shop" of New York City. ' I1he presentation was formally made by Mayor Oscar F. Holcombe at the Rice Hotel Roof, in behalf of Mr. and Mrs. F. T. Bald­win, through the Cruiser Houston Committee. The lithograph is made from da­guerreotype of General Houston in the prime of life, six feet two inches tall and weighing over 200 pounds. The painting was executed in oil by Mr. Julian Muench, Houston artist, from this lithograph and presented by Mr. Black to Mr. and Mrs. Bald­win. It was only fitting that Miss Jean Baldwin, great- great- grandaugh­ter of the General should have offic­iated at the unveiling of this splendid gift at the presentation. Captain Woodson accepted in behalf of the ship. This gesture is just another of the many made by citizens of Houston, singly and as a city, in the many gifts presented to this ship. We have received so many of their generosities that it would be impossible to ren­der sufficient appreciation other than living up to the ideals the Houston­ites have set for us, and try our level best to make them prouder that this ship does bear their name and that HOUSTON PORTRAIT PRESENTED TO SHIP There are few of us in the Navy today who are fully cognizant of just what has been going on since the United States first organized a line of defense for the merchantmen of the nation. We are prone to accept things as we see them, for their face value, little taking into consid­eration the hardships that our fore­fathers had to put up with to bring us to where we now stand in compar­ison with other sea going, fighting organizations.. While serving as Officer in Charge of the Navy Recruiting Station, Kan­sas City, Comdr. E. P. Eldredge, U. S. Navy, took the time and trouble to compile a list of historical events taking place and covering practically every phase of naval undertakings from a way back when up to the early years of the nineteenth century. The Commander has bee n goo d enough to let us use a few of these items and we now turn them over to all hands in order that everyone KNOWING THE NAVY Continued on page two. HOUSTON ROOM The Houston, Texas, Chamber of Commerce is planning a " Cruiser Houston" room, in which will be kept the model of our ship, pictures of Flag officers and Captains who may be attached to the ship from time to time, and other articles to remind them of the members of the U. S. S. HOUSTON. Among other things, it is desired to keep a file of the BLUE BONNET there. We think this is an excellent idea and hope for its suc­cess. Volume I
