Transcript Volume IV PO's TO PLAY HOSTS TO WIVES 1.' DINNER This Sunday noon, 10 January, the First Class Petty Officers will play host to their wives at dinner aboard ship. This will give the wives an op­portunity to gain first hand knowlege as to how their husbands live and, in addition, it will give the wives an op­portunity to become better acquainted with one another. If the commissary department provides one of those meals they are famous for, which they undoubtedly will, the wives are going to think that Uncle Sam does a mighty fine job of taking care of their husbands while at sea. With the fine spirit of good fellowship that is so prevalent among our Petty Officers, this ought to be a happy get- together. On the following Sunday, 17 Janu­ary, it is planned to give the second class petty officers this same op­portunity to entertain their wives and so on down the line. •••• 0- NOTICE! ALL HANDS!

THE CATERPILLAR CLUB Latest statistics ( 27 October 1936) give the total number of members in the Caterpillar Club as 827.

ARTHUR BRISBANE On Christmas morning Service men lost a friend in the death of Arthur Brisbane, columnist, whose influence was world- wide and who said: " Hats off to the Navy, best of Uncle Sam's military organizations. T! he Navy is, indeed, the watch- dog of American freedom. Contrary to ill­informed pacifists, the Navy does not promote war- it prevents bloodshed by making us a strong nation." " Disease is not likely to attack a strong body, neither is the malady f bloodshed likely to prey upon us so long we remain ready to fight. Those who have voice in our Govern­ment should, therefore, insist every­thing possible be done to improve ( Continued on Page Four)
