Transcript Volume IV NEW ASSISTANT SEC. NAV. At lIDO, 18 January, the Honorable Charles Edison assumed the duty of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy. He is the son of the former Electrical Wizard Edison and was appointed late this past fall to fill the vacancy left by the late Col.

Mineapolis attended classes of the University of Hawaii while their ship was being overhauled at the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard last Fall. . ,... DID YOU KNOW?

FLEET WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE OPENING OF THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE In a recent dispatch to Mayor Rossi of San Francisco and the members of the Golden Gate Fiesta Committee Admiral Hepburn expressed his regret and dissapointment that the FLEET would be unable to participate in the Golden Gate Fiesta which will be held some time this coming May in honor of the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge. In declining the invitation and expressing his regret, the Com­mander- in- Chief went on to explain that during this period practically every unit of the FLEET would be absent from the West Coast taking part in Fleet Problem 18 which forms the focus of all training throughout the year. In view of the fact that extensive plans for transportation, supply, navy yard work and schedules of various sorts must be made months in advance to prepare for these exercises, the Admiral stated that he didn't feel that he could recommend changing the schedule so that the leet could be properly represented.

The famed hospitality of San rancisco and her pride in the Navy always make pro­spective visits to the metropolis of the West looked forward to with the keenest expectation by every sea going sailor. .....
