Transcript Volume IV NEW GUNNERY OFFICER REPORTS This past Wednesday, Lt. Comdr. W. S. Strother, Jr., reported for duty as Gunnery Officer to relieve Lt. Comdr. R. E. Keating. Prior to coming to the HOUSTON Mr. Strother was assistant Gunnery Ou. cer of the QUINCY for about one year and a half. He was on that ship during the time that she went to Spain and stood by during the early iitages of the Spanish Revolution. During this period there were several times it looked like the QUINCY would have an opportunity to try her new guns out on real targets. From ' 26 to ' 28 Mr. Strother was turret officer on the TEXAS. Weare indeed fortunate in getting a Gunnery Of­ficer who has just completed a tour of duty in gunnery and will be able to carryon the splendid record set by his predecessor, Mr. Keating. We take pleasure in welcoming him a­board and wish him the best of luck in his new assignment. This coming Saturday, 10 April, Mr. Keating will, upon being relieved re- . port to Commander Battleships, Bat­tle Force, Vice Admiral E. C. Kalbfus for duty on his staff and as Aide and Flag Secretary. During the past two years that Mr. Keating has been on the HOUSTON he has done much to bring the HOUS­TON up to its present high stand­ing in gunnery. He will be remember­ed not only as an excellent officer; but, for the intense interest he took in the ship and for pleasant words he had for everyone. We wish him all that's good in the future. Long Beach, Calif., 10 April 1937 NO DANCE Last week this publication put out a feeler to determine how many of the crew were in favor of a ship's dance before the cruise. The first part of this week the various divisions were cavassed to determine the exact num­ber of men that were desirous of hav­ing a party. Some one hundred and fourteen men answered in the afirma­tive to this question. To have a suc­cessful party this was not a large enough response. It has therefore been decided to let the matter ride until our return from the cruise. By then the Ship Service Fund will be in such a shape that the expense of the party can probably be defrayed from this source. Everyone can rest assured that when the " Rambler Ship" does g i v e a party it will be one worthy of any organi~ ation. ...... FUN HO! Plans are well underway for the smoker to be held before the com­mencement of the main phase of the war games while the HOUSTON is at anchor in Lahaina Roads. From all indications it should be the most am­bitious affair ever offered for the entertainment of crew and officers. A tentative date of 1 May, has been set for this evening of furi. Every sort of amusement possible is to be offered in a manner that is quite unique. Be­sides musical numbers and soloists, there will be ir. cluded skits, exhibition wrestling, a song fest, and if pos­sible a free- to- all- comers rope climb­ing contest with nrizes for winners. ( Continued on Page 4.) Number XV ORDERS TO OFFICERS During the past few weeks a num­ber of officers have received orders to or from the HOUSTON, or have had their orders modified.
