Sterling of Houston for so nicely expressing nice sentiment. . STOKERS NOTES ? ? ? Another week closed and with it fond memories of dear old Houston, Texas, and did some of the stokers fall for them southern gals, with that dear old southern drawl. A.

The Engineering Score is still up there with 111.5 to date for the month and 115.6 to date for the year. Re­member, this ship would look good with that red " E" on the stack. How about putting it... t. h.. e. re? POETIC WELCOME * * * Welcome to our city, Welcome to our town: ' Twas a pleasure to see, Your majestic ship coming down. Hope you'll enjoy ,. o~ r sta1'. We'll enjoy your vidt too; Our town is wide ope: t, To you and all yO; lr crew. And may it please YOlJ. Admiral. Would like to see you again; Of course none of us can say, Really just when. Hope it will be in peace time. And never again in war · , . So glad the city of Houston. ls the cream of the Navy. by far. The first commander- in- chief of the first " American Fleet" Esek Hop­kins, was commissioned December 22, 1775. John Paul Jones was commiss­ioned Lieutenant the same day. The total number of vessels which served our infant nation during the struggle for independance was forty­two. Practically all of these were an­nihilated before the end of the war. * * * Strange as it may seem, the Ameri­can Navy had its origin in the Army and Washington was its Admiral! In dire need of suplies in the fall of 1775, Admiral George Washington fitted out several vessels, manned by soldiers under command of Army officers, for the purpose of capturing the needed articles from English sup­ply ships bound for Boston. This soldier Navy had surprising success and captured thirty- five prizes. * * • During the War of the Revolution, our infant Navy captured or destroy­ed more than 3000 British vessels. More than 100 of these were ships of the mighty British Navy. David Glasgow Farragut was an officer in the U. S. Navy and serving on board a cruising ship at the age of nine years, when he was a mid­shipman. * * * may become a little more familiar with our Navy's infancy. More will appear from time to time. Above the monotonous hours, Above the wreck of our dreamingo, Above the iJlness and sorrow, Like a bright star gleaming, Shines ever constant and true, Your love for me, my love for you! MARRIAGE KNOW YOUR NAVY ....-. Above the worry and plannlne. Above the day's endless labor. Above the ceaseless adjustment, Like a shining saber Cleavine the clouds that will form. Is your love, true and warm t - By Anne Campbell Above the din of the children, Above the sweeping and dusting, Above the ugly and sordid, Like a white bird thrusting Into the heavenly blue.

It was a grand time and the people of Houston have seen us at our best. Having been an SP during our visit, the writer can at­test to the statement just made be­cause he saw with his eyes. We can congratulate ourselves on the record we have established. More like them and better still. But could there be better? We've had our fun - now comes the grind. It's a long way to Panama and San Pedro. There is AA practice, some more fleet probIens, condition watches and such, but after all, isn't it good to get ashore and enjoy it when you've earned it? So let's get behind the plow and earn it. Only a couple more weeks to show our worth then to parade down the dock at Pedro, or if you'll wait - Frisco. Lieut. 01') D. A. Harris R. E.
