Transcript Vo~ ume IV, Number 22 * " S. S... 0 .. 5 ..... 0 .. * San Francisco, California 28 May 1937 Houston Officers Detached During the Houston's visit to San Francisco a number of Houston of­ficers will be detached. On Sunday, 30 June, we will lose Lt. Comdr. J. J. McGlynn who for the past 40 months has served faithfully and well on the Houston in the capacity of Assistant Engineering Officer, Aviation Gunnery Observer and Communication Officer. The day before Mr. McGlynn goes, we will lose two capable officers from the Gunnery Department; namely, Lt. Moosebrugger and H. E. Rice. Mr. Moosebrugger is another one of the old timers who has in the past three years been " F" Division Officer and Assistant Gunnery Officer, respective­ly. In the twenty- one months that Mr. Rice has been aboard, he has been the " boss" of the " F" Division. On Monday the thirty- first the Av­iation Unit will lose its capable Senior Aviator, G. L. Huff, who has been with the Houston Aviation Unit for the past two years. The Communication Department will, on the same day, likewise lose an equally valuable of­ficer, Chief Radio Electrician C. S. Denton, who for the past three year~ has done much to help the " Rambler Ship" get " the news." The Blue Bonnet expresses sin­cere regret for the ship's company in seeing these shipmates leave and wishes them the very best of luck and good fortune in their new assign­ments. --- 0- NEW BOATSWAIN ORDERED Boatswain Joseph H. Bienert has been ordered to the Houston for duty. He will report some time prior to the third of June before the fleet's depar­ture from San Francisco. Houston Party Dance To Be Held Friday, 11 June The sentiment in favor of a ship's dance has been spontaneous and un­animous. With such spirit the out­come can't be anything but successful. A meeting of division representa­tives was held in the Wardroom on Wednesday afternoon. All hands a­greed on the important details and the committee therefore is going ahead with plans accordingly. First, it was settled that the oc­casion is to be as much a farewell party for our Captain and Executive Officer as it is to be a ship's dance. It was agreed that Friday, 11 June, would be the best date. The dance it­self will be held at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles from 2100 to 0100. The Cruiser Staff personnel was definitely and enthusiastically includ­ed with the ship's company. Because of limited space and funds, no male guests outside of the ship ( and staff) personnel will be invited; but, any man may bring as many ladies as he cares to since an excess of stags is anticipated. A light buffet supper will be served during the " shank" of the evening. In addition to this, if funds permit, there may be a floor show. Definitely, there will be a minimum of speech making. The uniform is informal and option­al; but, as this is in the nature of a farewell party the committee hopes that all men will come in uniform rather than in civilian clothes. The " cup that cheers" will be avail­able at the expense of the individual. The committee further feels confident that all hands will trot out their com- ( Continued on Pall'e 2.) CruScoFor Team Will Enter Fort Funston Pistol Matches The following officers and men have been selected to represent the Cru­sers, Scouting Force in the Fort Fus­ton Pistol Matches which are to be held 30 May: Ensign C. Blenman, Chester; Ensign W. M. Hanger, and Pfc. G. A. Tallentine, Louisville; EMlc R. L. Kelly and Cpl. R. W. Sinclair, Pensacola; Captain J. D. Blanchard, U. S. M. C. ( team captain), Ensign R. S. Burdick and EM2c L. A. Keyes, Ind­ianapolis; Lt. ( jg) J. R. Justice, San Francisco; Lt. ( jg) M. Sunderland and FC2c T. F. Chawke, Salt Lake City; EMlc A. W. Simpson and F2c J. Sey­mour, Indianapolis, alternatives. Most of these men have had years of experience both in service and civil­ian team matches and should, there­fore, give a good account of them­selves. In this meet police and service teams from all over California and Mexico City will participate. --- 0--- HOUSTON MAN TO BECOME AVIATOR Robert C. Atkinson, Jr., AMM3c, was, during the Houston's stay in Pearl Harbor, transferred to the Nav­al Air Station, Pensacola, Fla., for a period of flight training. Atkinson, who for the past year and a half has been a plane captain in the Houston unit, is well qualified for this training. We wish him the best of luck and happy landings and may he have suc­cess in obtaining those coveted " Wings." --- 0--- The difference between getting somewhere and nowhere is the courage to make an early start.
