Transcript Volume IV EW OFFICERS ORDERED During this past week word has been received that three new officers are being ordered to the Houston this spring. Lieutenant Arthur A. Age­ton, now on duty at the Naval Acad­emy, has been ordered to report to the Houston on or about 7 June. Second Lieutenant James C. Murrary jr., USMC. has been ordered to report a­bout the middle of April as a relief for Mr. Williamson. Aviation Cadet John P. Jones, U. S. N. R. has been or­dered to the Houston unit of VS Squadron Nine upon completion of his course of instruction at Pensa­cola. He will report about 12 April. SCOUTI G FORCE WEATHER ME JOIN HOUSTON Thls past Thursday the Scouting Force Aerological Unit attached to ComCruScoFor reported aboard the Houston where they will remain dur­ing Commander Cruisers stay in the Houston. This party consists of Lieut. Francis L. Black, Aerological Officer; James B. Chamberlain, C. Aerog.; Fred B. Chase, Aerog. 1c Robert W. Green, Aerog. 3c.; Boyd A. Omang, Sea 1c.; Charles C. Herold, Sea 1c.; and George F. Wall, Sea 1c. The Houston takes pleasure in wel­comening these people aboard and hopes that they will give us some good weather. .. Ii. ARMY AND NAVY STAMPS A four- cent stamp will be the next in the Army- Navy series and will be issued at Washington, March 23rd. Stamp collectors desiring first- day cancellations may send addressed ( Continued on Page Four) Long Beach, Calif., 13 March, 1937. WRESTLI G A request was received the other day from the members of the heavy cruisers wrestling enteries in the All­Navy finals to be held at San Diego, 20 March, asking the Houston squad to help them in their preparations for their quests for belts. This was a complimentary welcome opportunity for our grapplers to gain valuable ex­perience. They will work out at the field house, Long Beach, until the All­Navys are held at San Diego. The heavy cruiser entries are: Bonyea ( Pensacola) 1181bs, Haller ( Minne­apolis) 1451bs, and Roos ( Portland) 165lbs. Roos has an excellent pros­pect of copping an All- Navy belt. The Houston squad will profit by this and with prospects of another All- Service tournament at the San Pedro Y. M. C. A. they will be better prepared for the cruiser eliminations next year. This last season they lacked experience, bat nevertheless gave the seasoned veterans of the other ships plenty of competition. This year the San Francisco won the cruiser wrest­ling Iron Man points. Strange to say the Houston and San Francisco had a practice workout in Vallejo prior to the official bouts in which the Hous­won six out of eight matches. How­ever, the San Francisco was in the Base Force group and had smooth sailing up to the cruiser semi- finals. Thus placed six entrees in the semi­finals. The Houston met squads from the Portland, Pensacola and Indian­apolis, ships that always have strong teams. With a break or two in the pairings, a little more experience and some candidates from the Engineer's force next year, the s1uad should cop some Iron Man points. Number XI VICE ADMIRAL TARRANT TO SHIFT FLAG During this next week Commander Scouting Force, Vice Admiral W. T. Tarrant, will shift his flag to the Indianapolis and later in the week Commander Cruisers, Scouting Force, Rear Admiral E. B. Fenner, will shift his flag from the Astoria to the Hous­ton. Tuesday, 16 March, a tender will come alongside and the Indianapolis will come along the opposite side of the tender. The change will be effect­ed across the tender. In last week's Issue of the " Blue Bonnet" it was stated that the present flag would re­main aboard; but, the early return of the Indianapolis necessiated a change in his plan. In bidding farewell to Admiral Tar­rant, his staff and Flag Personnel the Houston does it with sincere regret. During the eleven months that they have been aboard we have come to look upon them as fine shipmates and we all hope that some day we can a­gain make a cruise to- gether. - TRAVEL OF DEPENDENTS It has come to the attention of the Bureau that in a number of cases those who have been transferred to or from vessel on the west coast, having home yards on the east coast, and home ports on the west coast, did not recieve as much as they ex­pected in the way of reimbursement for travel of their dependents. The allowances are based upon cer­tain definite rules which may be sum­marized as follows: ( A) The law contemplates that the dependents are at either the home ( Continued on Page Four)
