Transcript Volume IV, Number 23 * "' 5.5... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. • Long Beach, California 5 June 1937 ORDERS TO OFFICERS During our first week's stay in Long Beach there will be a large turn- over of officer personnel. The first part of the week both the Executive Officer and the Navigator will be detached after turning over to their reliefs. Commander Robottom, who for the past twenty- four months has been our Executive Officer, will be relieved by Commander C. A. Bailey. About the same time the Navigator, Mr. Inglis, will be relieved by Lt. Comdr. W. E. Tarbutton. Later in the week Captain Curry, C. O. of the Houston marine detachment, will be relieved by Cap­tain A. V. Gerard. During this same week Lt. ( jg) A. L. Young, Second Division Officer and Lt. ( jg) S. P. Weller, Houston Aviator, will be de­tached. Monday, Lieutenant A. A. Ageton will report for duty. He is scheduled to become Assistant Gunnery Officer, filling the vacancy left by the detach­ment of Lieutenant Moosebrugger. The day before our departure from San Francisco, Boatswain J. B. Bie­nert reported for duty. He will relieve Chief Boatswain G. W. Meyers, who has been ordered to the Concord for duty. Mr. Meyers will be detached Saturday, 12 June. The first of June Ensign James A. Johnston, D- V( G) U. S. N. R., reported aboard for a two week's tour of train­ing duty. It is with sincere regret that we of the Houston say adios to these officers who during the time that they served aboard were largely responsible for the Houston gaining the reputation she justly deserves, as a happy and efficient ship. To those who are report- COMMANDER CRUISERS RE­TURNS TO CHICAGO Commander Cruisers, Scouting Force will transfer his flag to the Chicago on Monday 7 June. Before being trans­ferred there will be a change in Flag Officers. Rear Admiral Fenner will re­linquish his command to Rear Ad­miral Taussig. Immediately after breaking his flag in the Houston, Ad­miral Taussig and his staff will trans­fer to the Chicago, the regular assign­ed flagship of Commander Cruisers, Scouting Force. The change in com­mand ceremonies aboard the Houston will be attended by all the Command­ing Officers of the Cruisers, Scouting Force, and a number of Flag Officers. During the two months that the Flag has been aboard the Houston, the Admiral and his staff have been real shipmates and in saying farewell we all look forward to the day when we can again serve together. - BATSHIPS WIN PISTOL TROPHY The Olympic Club Service Pistol Team Plaque was won by the first team of the Battleships with a score of 1261 in a match at Fort Funston this past Sunday. The combined Sco­for team came in fourth with a score of 1153. The order of the finish of the other teams was: Olympic Club 1222, Battleships' second team 1167, Cruis­ers Scofor 1153, Battleships' third team 1244, Cincinnati 1078, Detroit 922. The winning score in this match last year was 1202. ing we offer a sincere welcome and our cooperation toward making their tour of duty a pleasant one. PARTY PLANS COMPLETED At a final meeting of the committee for our ship's party to be held on Fri­day 11 June, plans were completed for making this an affair worthy of the officers it is to honor. The Houston has been fortunate enough to reserve a large private ballroom at the Bilt­more Hotel for the evening, where a popular dance orchestra will furnish the music, and a buffet supper will be served. Invitations have been printed which will be distributed by division representatives early next week. An effort will be made to give those persons going on leave upon arrival in Long Beach invitations before they leave the ship. It is hoped that the col­lections will have been completed by that time so that Mr. Ball can as­semble all the funds prior to the dance; the preliminary contributions having proved very gratifying. The hour set for the evening of en­tertainment is from nine until one. Arrangements are being made for a special train to allow those with no other means of transportation a con­venient r,,~ urn to Long Beach. Although not definitely settled, it is hoped to obtain some entertainment for those who do not care to dance and such as is obtained will be more of quality than quantity. All hands are reminded that wearing of the uni­form is optional and that this is not to be a formal affair, which however does not mean a sporting event. In other words, next Friday is to be an evening of enjoyment for all and onE' which we hope Captain Baker and Commander Robottom will remember as typically Houston. Let's make it so \
