Transcript Volume IV, Number 25 1I" t: · • • * " S. 5... 0 .. 5...- 0.. * Ventura, California 19 June 1937 Wedding Bells Ring For Houston Officers This afternoon Miss Margarete Claxton of Washington, D. C., will be­come the bride of Ensign Barrows, popular young Houston officer. The wedding will be solemnized at the All Saints Church, Los Angeles. This past Wednesday Miss Elsie Robottom, daughter of our former Executive Officer, was married to En­sign Robert Burdick, former Houston officer, in a very colorful ceremony at St. Lukes Church in Long Beach. On the fourth of June Miss Madeline Kelleher Johnstone of New London, Conn., became the bride of Lt. ( jg) Williams, former Houston officer. This past week the Williams visited friends in Long Beach while on their way to Honolulu where Mr. Williams will have duty on the S- 34. Marine Officers Detached This week saw the transfer of Capt. John E. Curry and 2d Liuet. Herbert H. Williamson. Capt. Curry has been CO of the Marine Detachment for the last 19 months and left for the Marine Barracks, Quantico, Va., last Tuesday for duty. Lieut. Williamson received his orders for transfer to Pensacola, Fla., for flight training. In addition to these two marine officers, Lt. ( jg) A. L. Young and En­sign Johnson ( US R) were also de­tached. Mr. Young who for the past thirty- two months of his three years on the Houston has been Second Di­vision Officer, was transferred to the Brazos. Ensign Johnson, having com­pleted his two weeks of active duty returned to Oakland, Calif., where he is practicing law. Houston's Seventh Birthday Thursday 7YEARS is a long time in the life of any man- o'- war. That is the length of time which has elapsed since the commissioning of the U. S. S. Hous­ton at Newport News, Virginia, on " he 17th of June, 1930. To those of us who have been fortunate enough to participate in all or part of the pic­turesque career of the Rambler Ship, those years have been memorable ones filled with never- to- be- forgotten events and splendid cruises. The ports in which the Houston's anchors have been dropped would read like the combined itineraries of sev­eral world cruises. She has threaded the channels of inland rivers and can­als and most of the world's fabulous seven seas. She has dipped her colors in greeting to and swung at anchor with the ships of the world: Her com­panions have been sleek liners and grim warships flying the colors of all the maritime nations of the earth; oddly shaped junks and sampans of China and Japan and the Philippine Islanders' outrigger canoes with brightly painted sails havp. played tag with her slender clipper bow. Her propellers have churned the waters of the world's great ports: New York, San Francisco, Southamp­ton, Rotterdam, La Havre, orfolk, Charleston, Houston, Kobe, Yokoha­ma, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Manila, Honolulu, Valparaiso, Panama City. Seattle- and many other far flung places have greeted her. Under her bows have slid much green water and behind her lies hundreds of thousands of sea miles. ( Continued on Page 4.) Navy Mothers Clubs Convention Closed The Navy Mothers Clubs of Ameri­ca closed their fourth annual con­vention yesterday with the election of officers and a dinner at the Hay­ward Hotel, Los Angeles. Former adjutant, Mrs. ell E. Evans, of Portland, Oregon, was re­elected national commander, a posi­tion she well deserves. It is of interest to note the follow­ing facts concerning this splendid woman who has been mainly respon­sible for organizing the mothers of Navy men on a national scale. When the first Presidential Cruise ended in Portland, Oregon, three years ago this month, Mrs. Evans in­tertained a large group of the Hous­ton's enlisted men with a house party at her Portland home. At · that time she had one son in the service, but had never heard of the organization which she now heads. Frenchy Godaire, Shipfitter 2c, still attached to the Rambler Ship, sent " Mom" Evans copies of Our avy magazine because of her intense interest in the service and in appreciation of her kindness. In one of those issues a short article mentioned the NMC group which had been getting its start in a small area in Texas; immediately Mrs. Evans became interested and shortly there­after had started organizing Port­land's club, now one of the largest in the country with more than one hundred members. At the first con­vention she was elected national ad­jutant which was another way of as­suring the quick success of the or­ganization which works only for the ( Continued on Page 2.)
