Transcript Volume III * .. s. s... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Long Beach, Calif., September 9, 1936 Number XXXIV NAVAL HEROES HONORED New Series of Pos~~ ge Stamps Issued During the pa~~~ w years the Postal Department has instituted a custom which has become increasing­ly popular throughout the Nation. This has been the periodic issue of commemorative series of stamps de­picting different historical events and scenes in the history of the United States. These stamps have not only been received by collectors with great en­thusiasm but have also become popular with the entire citizenry of the country. This is only natural since every stamp in some way or another refers to the colorful history and glory of the United States from Re­volutionary days untill the recent past. The interest stimulated has been truly phenominal. We of the Navy may feel proud in knowing that a special issue of stamps called the " Hero Series" issued in honor of Army and Navy heros, is now on sale. Following is listed ' the " Navy" series: l- cent-- John Paul Jones, Naval Commander in the war of Independ­ence, and John Barry, first American Commodore, and " Father of the American Navy". 2- cent-- Thomas McDonough and Stephen Decatur, noted for their ser­vice against the pirates of Tripoli and in the War of 1812 3- cent-- David Glasgow Farragut, the Navy's first Admiral, and David Dixon Porter, Farraguts' foster bro­ther, who served with him on the Mis­sissippi during the Civil War.

There will not be as many Houston entries as had been hoped for due to gunnery and other duties which will not permit certain members of the team to par­ticipate. Nevertheless each and every man who has been out with the team can feel he has done his part even though not actually a participant in the meet. It is hoped this opportunity will be the means of the beginning of a suc­cessful mat year for the Houston Ath­letes. Members of the Houston squad expected to be seen in action are: Folta - 175, Beckwith - 165, Pratt ­155, Penny - 145...,.. INTERESTING FACTS CONCERNING THE STATE OF TEXAS Before and after independence the State of Texas had 13 Capitals. Although ten different cities are all that were used as the Capital, three of these were used twice; Washington on the Brazos, Houston and Austin the present Capital. The others were SALTILLO, MON­CLOVA, SAN FELIPE de AUSTIN, HARRISBURG., GALVESTON, VE­LASCO, and COLUMBIA on the BRA­ZOS. When Texas was admitted to the Union one of t: w priveleges given ( Continued on Page Four) ENLISTED PERSONNEL CANDIDATES FOR AVIATION PILOT TRAI ING --::-- The Bureau desires recommen­dation of applicants for flight train­ing, from which selections will be made for future classes.

TRAINING COURSES --::-- Due to insufficient appropriation of funds for the printing and binding of Training Courses for enlisted men, a number of courses are now out of print and t~ e supply of other courses is limited. In order that the full list of training courses may be available for issue within the next few years it will be necessary to immediately put into effect the following economy measures. Each training course will be used by men in succession until it is worn out. Past experience has shown that one course can be used by three men in succession before its usefulness is destroyed. Separate Pro­gress Tests and examinations will be issued to each map. ( Continued on Page Four)
