Enroute San Francisco August 10, 1936 Number XXX HOUSTON VISITED BY HIGH MILITARY AND CIVIL OFFICIALS During this past week the Houston in behalf of Vice Admiral Tarrant played host to a number of ranking Army and Civil Officials. The first of these visitors was Mayor Carsons of Portland who made his official call on the Admiral Sunday afternoon soon after the Houston was secured to the dock. Monday morning Major General 1. J. Parsons, Commanding Officer, Vancouver Barracks and Brigidier General Rilea of the Portland Nat­ional Guard made official calls on the Admiral. Both of these Gen­erals were awarded full honors which included Full Guard; Band; six side boy' and gun salutes on departure, of 13 and 11 guns respectively. Tuesday afternoon Governor Mar­tin made an official call and was re­ceived with full honors. These honors consisted of eight side boys, Full Dress Uniform and a nineteen gun salute on departure. In addition to these calls many minor officials and committees were received. Last Saturday afternoon, Admiral Tarrant gave a reception aboard for the people of Po. r. tl. a. nd. THE BATTLESHIP OREGO --::-- Many of the Houstonites saw the historical battleship Oregon which is peacefully moored in the Willamette River. The record of the Oregon is without an equal. In 1898, during the Spanish- American War, she was watched by the nations of the world, ( Continued on Page Four) PORTLAND ENTERTAINS FLEET Well sailor, what do you think of Portland? Swell, best port of the cruise. This sentence or words to that effect are on the lips, of some 99 per­cent of the officers and men today. Why shouldn't there be. The people 01 Portland have certainly lived up to and far exceeded that " Western Hos­pitality you have heard so much about. They have done everything in their power to make the Fleet's visit to their city as enjoyable as possible. They have feted both officers and men with dances, receptions, sight­seeing tours, smokers and what is more appreciated than anything- they have taken us into their homes and ( Continued . o. n..

Composed of nearly one thousand men­o- warsmen from the vessels present for Fleet Week, this parade was unique in that none but men from the warships took part. Three pla­toons of snappy sea- soldiers lent ad­ded color to the line of march, com­posed of platoon after platoon of white clad ailormen. The parade lasted hardly more than forty minutes but was the center of attraction to the many thousands of Portlands citizens. To say the parade was greeted enthuistically is putting it mildly. Every vantage point of view along the line of march was crowed by a ( Continued on Page Four) FLEET TO VISIT SAN FRANCISCO In a few days we will be arriving in San Francisco, a city that is as cosmopolitan as New York, London or Paris. " Famed in song and story," San Francisco offers musch to the tourist. Romance and glamor still cling to the city, although much that created that romance and glamor has gone on its way long gao. With its fine harbor it is the local point for shipping to and from the Orient, claiming to be the finest port on the West Coast, and one of the finest in the world. We enter the Bay at the Golden Gate, a narrow entrance. On the right past the Gate is the famous Presidio, location of one of the Army's well­known posts. It is here one sees the Golden Gate bridge that spans the bay. Farther along on the left may be seen Angel Island, home of Fort McDowell. Closer in is the more fam­ous Alcatraz, now a federal prison, housing a large number of our lead­ing criminals. San Francisco contineus on the right. The famous Telegraph Hill with its Latin quarter, can be seen in San Francisco to the right. As we round the point at Telegraph Hill and turn right we see the Embaraca­dero, the water- front street. To the left is oat Island, home of the Navy' Receiying Ship, and former home of the Training Station, now at San Diego. The Ferry Building, on the right, occupies the center position on the Embarcadero. He:- e the ferries come with their thousands for Oak­land, Alameda, and Berkeley, across the Bay. The street cars run to the ( Continued on Page Two)
