Transcript Volume IV BRITAIN TO LAY KEEL:=) FOR TWO NEW BATTLESHIPS According to a recent news item in the " New York Times", a few hours after the expiration of the Washing­ton Naval Treaty the keels of two 35,000 ton battle ships, the KING GEORGE V at the Vickers- Arm­strong yard and the PRINCE OF WALES at the Cammel- Laird ship­yard, were laid down. These ships, which will be the most formidable ships in the British Navy, will mount fourteen- inch guns and have a speed of thirty knots. In recent issues of the press the United States government has an­nounced that she will start, this com­ing June, the construction of the two 35,000 ton battle ships authorized by the last Congress. Although these ( Continued.. o. n.. P. age Four) NEW DISTRIBUTION METHOD In the past there have meen many complaints as to the distribution me­thods used by this paper. Oftentimes it was impossible or at least very in­convenient for some of the Ship's Company to get copies of the Blue Bonnet. To help remedy this situation a rack is being made which will be mounted on the bulkhead of the For­ward Mess Hall in which each week copies of the current issue of the paper will be placed for the conven­ience of all hands. To do this it may be necessary to reduce the number of copies issued to each division but it is believed that this will be a much better means of distrib, uting the paper. If the rack isn't there for this issue it will be there for next week's edition. Long Beach, Calif., 18 January, 1937. PERMANENT APPONTMENT Requests have been received for the Bureau's interpretatioJll. as to whether certain periods shall be credited as sea duty or as shore duty in deter­mining a chief petty officer's eligi­bility for a permanent appointment. Duty on shore in connection with fitting out a new vessel, or other tem­porary assignments on shore for a short period of time will be counted as sea duty when each of the three following conditions have been fulfill­ed: ( a) When the man concerned was serving at sea at the time he was issued the acting appoint­ment. ( Continued on Page Four) C'I •••• EW KEY TO CO TRIBUTION BOX Last week various members of the " Blue Bonnet" staff started check­ing up to see who had the key to the Contribution Box in the Forward Mess Hall. Everyone thought someone else had it and was taking care of the various contributions; but, when the Carpenter's gang was finally called to pry open the lid it was discovered that no one had apparently looked at the box for some time, with the re­sult that it was practically overflow­ing. However this week it was a dif­ferent story, the box was as bare as Old Mother Hubbard's famous cup­board. Can't say that one can blame the various contributors; but, please don't fail us again. A new lock has been installed and we promise to see that the box is cleared each Thurs­day morning. Remember that this is your paper and its success depends upon the extent to which you back it up. Lend a hand! Number III CRUISER HOUSTON ( Continued) This is the last part of Colonel Ball's article dealing with the naming of the HOUSTON. In this issue Col. Ball tells of the presentation of the Silver Service and the HOUSTON'S two visits to the City of Houston. ,- ilver Service For Cruiser In acordance with the custom of states and cities to present silver ser­vices to naval vessels named in their honor, Mr. Bernrieder was authori­zed to negotiate for a silver service to cost around $ 25,000, the city author­iLes having agreed to pay for it. Silver Service Received On October 25, 1930, the Houston arrived and was made fast at one of the docks. Elaborate preparations had ( Con_ tinu_ ed on Page Two) ~ 1''''''''_-=--_ PIANO MOVED AND BOXED In answer to the article appearing in last weeks " Blue Bonnet" entitled " Move the Piano", please note that the piano has been moved. The only r" lason that this hadn't been done be­fore was due to the fact that it was believed that it would be better pro­tected in the hangar until a suitable stowage could be constructed than in the Recreation Compartment where it wOilld be at the mercy of the Mess Cooks. A stowage case hadn't been provid­ed for the simple reason that there was no suitable lumber aboard. How­ever, the Supply Department came through to the tune of $ 33.00 and pur­chased some very select mahogoney. Carpenter Kalb and the C & R Gang are now putting the finishing touches ( Continued on Page Four)
