Transcript Volume IV CRUI~ E HAPPY HOUR With a long cruise away from our home port in the offing, plans are being made for a grand evening of fun and entertainment to interrupt the monotony of the War Games. Those of you who witnessed the ex­hibition of talent recruited for the children's Christmas Party will re­member the really good time every­one had- and that was supposed to be for tne kiddies only! Now with all the talent aboard that was missing because of leave and lib­erty during the holiday season and since all hands will be there to en­joy the show while on the Cruise, it is hoped volunteers will not be lacking. Any sort of idea or act ( singing, instrumental numbers, skits, dance routines, et caetera,) will be highly acceptable and the more it has to do with ship's personalities, the better it will be received. It is planned to carry a theme of Hawaii thru the Hour( s?) of Hap­piness so it is suggested all connois­seurs of hula hilarities will do well to get their hints in early. The exact date has not been set for this evening of fun, frolic and merriment, but, in order to make it a presentation worthy of the Hou­ston it would be wise to get the pro­gram well organized while " at anchor" routine permits more leisure. Anyone having suggestions, or who is willing to help, should see Ensign Ely or Ensign Quackenbush this com­ing week so that necesiOary props may be obtained before April 16th. Let's get going Gang! ... We want to make this an evening that will be remem­bered for a long time to come! Long Beach, Calif., 3 April, 1937. PROSPECTIVE SHIP'S DANCE The beginning of next week, the various Division Officers will circu­larize their divisions to find out how many men are interested in having a ship's dance between now and the forthcoming cruise. If a sufficient number of men are interested in hav­ing a party, various committees will be appointed and the necessary arrangements made. The Houston has always made it a policy of doing nothing half heart­edly, especially her parties. To make this party a success it will be neces­sary to charge an admission of about one dollar a couple, fifty cents per single ticket, and to have the whole hearted cooperation of all hands, think it over and give your Division Officer YOUI' decision. THIS IS YOUR PAR­TY. ...... SELECTED CREW Although originally scheduled for the end of next week, the race for se­lected whaleboats was advanced to today in order to prevent interfer­ence with the sailing races on April 9th, 12th, and 13th. This has not caught us unprepared however, be- ­cause the selected crew has been working out, twice daily for the last two weeks, and with Smith of the " Third" at the tiller, it is expected to bring home some bacon in the rowing field at last. With " Kid" Viskovich at stroke and supported by such experienced oarsmen as Dur­an, McDonald, and Mckenna, there should be little reason for the Hou­ston to trail any crew, except per­haps the all- time favorite Salt Lake City ten. Our last race showed that ( Continued on Page Four) umber XIV HOUSTON OFFICER SELECTED FOR LIEUT · COMDR. Once again the Houston Officers bat one hundred percent with the selectIOn board. This past week, Lieutenant F. Moosbrugger, Assist­ant Gunnery Officer, was selected for Lt- Comdr. Mr. Moosbrugger who is a member of the Naval Academy Class of 1923, was the only Houston Officer eligible for selection by this board. However, Lieut. D. Felt, who for two years was the Senior Avia­tor of the Houston Aviation Unit and who is now serving with Squad­ron VJ 2 in San Diego, was also selec­ted. Lieut. Moosbrugger, in the 34 months that he has served aboard in the Gunnery Department, has done much toward helping the Houston win its enviable Gunnery record. Weare, therefore, proud to offer him our sincerest congra.. tu. l. a. tions. OFFICERS RECEIVE ORDERS During this past week two of our Senior ships Officers received their orders detaching them from the Ship. Our .. Executive Office: t: r Commander P. K. Robottom received orders de­taching him this coming June. Up­on being detached he will report to the Commandant Thirteenth Naval District, Seattle, Washington for a tour of shore duty. The Navigator Lt- Comdr. T. B. Inglis, received orders also effective in June to report to the Chief of Naval Operations in Washington, D. C. for duty. .....
