This is only in fairness to your dependants in order that should anything hap~ n to you they may be promptly notified and receive the benefits to which they are entieled by law. On January 12, 1937, Admiral Adol­phus Andrews, Chief of Navigation, instructed all ships and stations to modify the " Return Address" side o( the liberty cards by substituting lines for signature, date of birth and space for print of left and right forefingers. The reason for the modification is ex­plained in the following paragraph from Admiral Andrews' letter: " The attention of the Bureau of Navigation has been invited to the extensive mis- use of lost liberty cards by apparently non- naval personnel. The principle item of mis- use is for purposes of identification, for estab­lishing credit, by posing as the en­listed man whose name appears on the card, thereby giving that enlisted man a bad standing in the eyes of the merchant, and general discredit to the Naval Service." The mention of liberty cards must bring to the Old Timers memories of the days when they used to stand impatiently on the quarter- deck while a yeoman or quartermaster called the names of the liberty party and checked them " out" on liberty lists that contained hundreds of names. It was a system handed down from Paul Jones' day. ( Continued , o.. n, . Page Three) CAMP TARRANT Named 21 January, in honor of Vice Admiral W. T. Tarrant, now Commander Scouting Force, U. S. Fleet, was the recently established U. S. Marine Corps camp on San Clemente Island. Camp Tarrant is a comparath'ely new camp of this branch of national defense, and is one of the results of the extensive construction and defense plan of this important island, which is now in progress. Major W. H. Harrison, U. S. Marine Corps, is in command of Camp Tal'l" ant. George Washington, was born in \- Vestmoreland County, Virginia, on 22 February, 1732; therefore it is fitting that this issue be honored by " his presence." " When Washington took command of the Continental Army before Bos­ton in July 1775, the extreme shortage o i ammunitio'n prevented e v IE! n ' making a suitable return'. In this acnte dilemma he arranged to send a vessel of the Rhode Island Navy to Bermuda for powder, and himself began the fitting- out of small ' armed vessels with the design to pick up some of their ( British) storeships and transports' near our coast. This so called ' Washington Fleet' was the beginning of the Continental Navy. The first vessel commissioned was the HANNAH, Captain Nicholson Brough ton, which sailed from Beverly on September 5th and brought in a prize two days later. During the six months preceding the evacuation of Boston (. Continued on Page Three)
