Transcript Volume IV * " S. 5. " O" S"'- O" * Long Beach, Calif., 6 February, 1937. Number VI PORTLAND TO SEE BIGGER SEA FORCE ( From The Oregonian) Not " fleet week," but " fleet weeks," will be Portland's navy visitation period next summer, according to C. T. Haas, chairman of Mayor Corson's " fleet- week" committee, who returned last week from San Pedro, Cal., with the announcement that two weeks, instead of one, will be spent by naval vessels in Portland this year. The visiting period established by Admiral A. J. Hepburn, commander­in- chief of the fleet, was July 16 to 29, inclusive. Instead of sending a fleet of 22 ships and 5,000 men, as was done las't sum­mer, Admiral Hepburn has offered a larger fleet and 10,000 men- as many as the port's berthing space will stand - because Portland treated her Naval guests so royally last year. · Navy " Sold on City " Much to our delight," reported Mr. Haas to the mayor, " we found that Portland did not have to sell itself to the navy, but that Portland had already sold itself to the navy." High officials of the navy liked Portland's attitude last year when no effort was made here to commer­cialize the fleet's y; sit, and an out­standing program of entertainment had been worked out for all personnel, including even the Negro kitchen help on the hospital ship RELIEF. While none of the same cruisers that called here last year will be sent back next summer, Mr. Haas reported, Vice- Admiral W. T. Tarrant will again be in command of the visiting men ' 0 war. His flagship will be the Indian- ( Continued on Page Four) FLEET MANEUVERS The departure of all units of the fleet for the solution of fleet problem XVIII has been set as of April 19, according to an announcement made at Long Beach,.. C.. a. l. i. fornia. PROPOSED INCREASE IN NAVAL RESERVE A proposal to increase the person­nel of the Naval Reserve from its present 42,000 members to a full peace- time strength of 160,000 will be placed before Congress at its next session. .....• IOWA CAMPAIGN TO NAME NEW SHIP Already started in other sections of the State of Iowa, the movement is gaining impetus until it amounts to a demand. In eastern Iowa eommittees have been apointed by the American Legion posts at Clinton, Muscatine and Maquoketa and other points to further the demand. It is the State's inherent right to re­store to the U. S. Navy the name that proved illustrious in bygone years but missing from battleship titles since the old Iowa was sunk by gunfire dur­ing experimental work off the coast of Panama in March, 1923. It was the crack gun crews of the Mississippi that poured a salvo of shell into her hull that sent her to the last resting place beneath the waves. From the facts as they are and by every line of reasoning Iowa is en­titled to have her name again floating from the mast head of one of the avy's newest battleships that is to be built in the very near future. MORE BLOOD DONORS In response to a despatched request for volunteer blood donors these en­listed men attached to the U. S. S. HOUSTON generously offered them­selves and were sent to the Seaside Hospital, Long Beach, on 29 January, 1937, for tests and transfusions if necessary: Brickler, J. E. Seale, Boris, J .., F3c. Goddard, D. T., Mus2c., Griffin, L. 0., F1c., Horn, G. J., Sea2c., Hubenek, J. F., Seale., Sackett, A. L., FIe., Wauk, M. T., F2c. Horn furnished blood to transfuse Mrs. Elwina MacDonald, wife of R. J. MacDonald, EMlc., attached to U. S. S. Mahan. Boris was selected as the donor to transfuse Mrs. Wilma Oxner, wife of Floyd E. Oxner, MM2c., of the U. S. S. Mississippi. Goddard was selected to furnish blood to transfuse Mrs. Mae Haigler, wife of D. L. Haigler, PhM1c., who is in the U. S. S. Arizona's ship's com­pany. A letter to the Commanding Officer, U. S. S. Houston from the Medical Officer in Command, U. S. Naval Dis­pensary, Long Beach, reports that as a direct result of these transfusions the three patients' condition is greatly improved. He also says, " The imme­diate response on the part of these men is very commendable and I wish to express my sincere appreciation of their generous conduct." All of the men named were given tests and their blood typed. Their names will be kept on file and may be asked to act in the same capacity again of the necessity arises.
