Transcript Volume IV, Number 24 * " S. S... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Long Beach, California 12 June 1937 Commander C. A. Bailey New Executive Officer This past Monday Commander C. A. Bailey relieved Commander P. K. Ro­bottom as Executive Officer of the " Rambler Ship." When interviewed by the representative of the Blue Bon­net Commander Bailey said, " I was pleased when I received orders to the fine ship Houston; and I am happy to be with you. It is my desire to do my part in maintaining the exc. eUent name of the Houston as a happy and efficient fighting unit of our fleet." The Houston is indeed fortunate in having as its Executive Officer a man who has a service reputation as being a just and efficient officer and one who has seen service in all types of ships. We of the Houston welcome him aboard and offer him our whole­hearted cooperation in maintaining the reputation of the Houston as the best ship in the fleet. ....... Naval Pay Adjustment During the latter part of May, Rep­resentative Byron N. Scott, of Long Beach introduced a bill in the House of Representatives authorizing re­adjustment for the pay of all naval personnel from vice admiral down through the ranks to apprentice sea­man. Revision provided for in the bill is as follows: Base pay of an en­sign, $ 2,500; lieutenant ( jg), $ 4,000; lieutenant, $ 5,500; lieutenant com­mander, $ 7,000; commander, $ 8,500; captain, $ 10,000; rear admiral, $ 12,000 and vice admiral, $ 14,000 per annum. Revision for warrant officers: rank with and draw the pay of an ensign from the date of appointment and be ( Continued on Page 4.) The Houston Will Visit Ventura, California A bit of information on our coming excursion to Ventura to attend a con­vention of Disabled War Veterans might not be amiss at this time. It must be said that it has all the Golden Grainers tearing their hair and all the liberty sports speculating as to its possibilities. Joe West, ever- popular mail clerk, spent half of one day looking for this city in his postal guide and all the available World Almanacs; quoth Joe: " It must be less than 3,000 popula­tion because it's not in the World Al­manac." For once Joe was on the wrong track. All true Venturans know the correct name of their Poinsettia City is " San Buenaventura." Just as there is no Hollywood in a postal guide there is no Ventura. Be assured however that there is a post office there and quite a nice one, too. It was completed in 1936 and its interior is decorated with hand- painted murals depicting early California history. There are numerous points of inter­est in this early California town, one of them Ventura County Court House. When viewed from the foot of Cali­fornia Street at night, its white mar­ble and gargoyles gleaming in the floodlights that illuminate it and the newly unveiled statue of Padre Serra in front, is an appealing sight. Just inside the main entrance to the Court House is a room devoted entirely to relics and exhibits of Ventura County. The curator, Mr. Sheridan, can spin many a long yarn about the varied and interesting exhibits for he has devoted the larger number of years of ( Continued on Page 2.) Los Angeles Masonic Lodge To Hold Navy Night A letter from Mr. J. J. Svoboda of 1423 West 66th Street, Los Angeles, California, telephone Thornwall 4966, is quoted in part as follows: " On Monday evening, June 14, Los Angeles Lodge will hold Navy Night at its meeting place at the Masonic Temple, Pico and Figueroa Streets, Los Angeles. As the oldest Lodge south of Monterey and north of San Diego, having just celebrated our 83d Birthday Anniversary, we are dedicat­ing this night to the members of the Fraternity aboard Uncle Sam's fight­ing ships, and it is our desire that everyone eligible to attend avail him­self of the opportunity of so doing. " The Third Degree of Masonry will be conferred by the Naval Degree Team of the National Sojourners, in uniform and since that date is also Flag Day it is planned to arrange some ceremony for that occasion. It is to be desired that the Brethren at­tend in uniform. Refreshments will be served." ...... New Officers Report This last week saw five new addi­tions to the Wardroom Mess of the Houston; Commander C. A. Bailey, Lt. Comdr. W. E. Tarbutton, Lieut. A. A. Ageton, Captain A. V. Gerard, ( USMC), Ensign Whistler, ( USNR). These officers took over the respective jobs of Executive Officer, Navigator, Assistant Gunnery Officer, C. O. Mar­ine Detachment, and Junior Third Di­vision Officer. The Blue Bonnet, in behalf of the of­ficers and crew, welcomes them aboard and wishes them a happy cruise.
