Transcript 27 October, 1934. Lt. ( j&,) J. B. BerkJey - Editor.. -; CONTRIBUTORS ;- * * * PEP TALK the Navy, bring it home to them. Eighty thousand men in the Navy should be eighty thousand boosters not only on October 27, but every day of the year. Write home and tell the folks about their Navy, make them PROUD of it and when you do that we'll always have a Navy we can be proud of. CO* MMEN* DAT* ION Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, 20 October, 1934. Portland, Ore. We haven't either - we must confess, But we ask you. sir - e- ive these a test. We ask you please, don't be offended, For these were really well intended. Do you always lay upon your bed, With just your hat upon your head? Or perhaps it'. cause you don't possess. A pair of pajamas in which to rest. ( s) HARRIS LANING Dear Window Jumper; Way up here in far away place. ' Ve heard about your crimson face. About your leap. from two stories high, Out of the bed that was flaming high. II .... From: Commander, Cruisers, Scout­ing Force. To Commanding Officer, U. S. S. HOUSTON. Subject: Appreciation of service ~ n­dered as Flagship. 1. Upon transferri' 1g my flag, today, Il'om the U. S. S. hOUSTO. Lo , he u .. S. CHICAGO, I wish to ex­press to you, and to the officers and men of your comIl). and, my appreci, at­ion of the excellent cooperation and assistance given me and my staff by the HOUSTON during our stay a­board. 2. Not only have we been aided in our work in every possible way but at the same time our comfort and welfare has received every consider­ation. We have pride in your ship and leave it with pleasant memories. 3. The HOUSTON is a splendid flagship and I am confident that in carrying the flag of the Commander­in- Chief, United States Fleet, or any other high commander, the HOUS­TON efficiency and the HOUSTON spirit will reflect credit not only on the ship itself but also on the entire Heavy Cruiser Command of which it is a unit. Here we are in Panama sooner than wc expected and we'll soon bid good­by to the Atlantic side. Also received a letter from Southern Cal saying that we'd be back there the 10th of ' ovember. That's good news, coming from a reliable source. Speaking of ne . vs, our own Hogan's Alley is the best place to pick up local news items. F10J:;~ the scandal monger occupants of that bug eaten Alley we hear that: Bill Ra: iel' is thinking of putting in for recruiti ,:; duty and , iC have no doubt ht.. 11 make a good recruiter, but we'll hate to see him go. Nary a day goes by but what the gang doesn't have a good laugh at Bill's expense and he just smiles and takes it. Terrio has the situation well in hand since Hartman left and with his flashlight and gruff voice is a jimmy- legs of no mean talent. Terrio, who just came from recruiting duty at Kansas City recently, was a puglist in his younger days. It also came to light that our own Chips Nelson used to be a leath­er pusher but he met his Waterloo in Waukegan and hasn't been the same since. One day, soon after the marines had their boat race in Guan­tanamo, Terrio asked Walshe if he had stopped io bale out the boat dur­ing the- race. Doc was seen giving Rader a hair cut with a pair of scissors and a flash light. Several of our Chiefs went to the LOUISVILLE last week to view the smoker. Shan­nahan, however, wasn't so much in­terested in the smoker as he was in the ice cream they served in the chief's quarters. His famous saying is " W~ t, no ice cream 7" A most strik­ing resemblence of a boatswains mate was seen the other day when Mc­Carroll was wearing a rain coat and minus his shoes and stockings. And that brings to mind an idea that I'd like to have a picture of Shannahan's bare feet and his pipe as a symbol to head this column. CALIFORNIA, here I come!!!!!! is to make the best impression poss­ible ashore as individuals, whether it be San Pedro, New York, or Podunk­ville. The Navy as a whole will be judged by your actions. Acquaint the folks at home with the Navy. Make them realize that the fleet is not a group of yachts but a fighting unit. Tell them interesting things about rUE BLUE BO ' NET THE :- HACKIES COMMENTS NAVY DAY, October 27th has been set aside for the prime purpose of making citizens of our nation Navy conscious. Those who live on the coast have an opportunity to observe us at first hand, but those who live inland ral · ely if ever see a man- of- war. It is towards those millions living at a distance from the ocean that we should direct our attention. Without proper appreciation of the value of our naval forces these people will never realize the importance of our nations first line of defense and in consequence all naval legislation may suffer. These are times of great stress at home and abroad. A noted writer and observer of European affairs, while attending a series of conferences of the World Alliance for International Friendship on the island of Fano in Denmark, noted that the attitude was not one of pacifism but one of war. In the opening address the speaker said, " I believe there are more causes of war in Europe now than there were in 1914." The recent assasination of King Alexander adds another fagot to the flames. The world in general is in a state of great unrest. Once be­fore, our nation was caught unprepar­ed. Thanks to the policy of the new admini tration. in Washington, our Navy is being prepared for the fut­ure. We hope we do not have to fight, but if we do, we must be prepared. Men in the service come from all walks of life, from all parts of the country. It is up to us, the men who serve the guns, to sell the Navy to those we know at home. For us there should be no particular single Navy Day, each day of the year should be a Navy Day. The way to make it so Lt. ( jg) D. A. Harris R. E, Botterell. Sic n. L. Brown. EMlc Jack Holt.
