Transcript Volume IV, Number 26 * " 5. S... 0 .. 5...- 0.. * Long Beach, California 26 June 1937 New Post Office For Navy Through the courtesy of the Post Office Department, a U. S. Post Office to be known as ' Roosevelt Station" has been recently established in the Navy Landing building at the foot of Fico Street, Long Beach, California. This station is located at the extreme west end of the landing. The Roosevelt station is prepared to furnish regular post office service ( including the handling of money orders) to the officers and men of the fleet. With a view toward the betterment of the service furnished by this sta­tion, the Long Beach postmaster has invited suggestions from the person­nel of the fleet. Such suggestions should be forwarded to the Com­mander in Chief, U. S. Fleet. Fleet Information In order to obtain information a­bout the arrival and departure of the fleet or any unit thereof in and from the Long Beach- San Pedro area, fleet personnel should direct their friends and relatives to call the " Senior Pa­trol Officer" and not the U. S. Fleet Shore Patrol Radio Station, San Pe­dro. " BaseRad" is not permitted to give this information. However, the telephone facilities of the Senior Pa­trol Officer are limited and it has been requested that fleet personnel instruct their friends and relatives not to make unnecessary calls. Likewise, in order to send an MSG to a ship, call the U. S. Fleet Shore Patrol Radio Station, San Pedro, not the Senior Patrol Officer. This sta­tion is located at the Navy Landing, ( Continued on Page 4.) Pistol Team Loses Match To Ventura Police On Tuesday afternoon the pistol team met the Ventura Police Pistol team in an interesting match. The course was new to the men and in the past few months there has been little opportunity for practice; but, they managed to provide enough com­petition to make the match interest­ing. The score was 1432 to 1350. The police proved to be real sportsmen and everyone throughly enjoyed meet­ing them. All hands attended the barbecue at Seaside Park after the match with the police and under their protection enjoyed a few beers. The police suggested a return match. On Wednesday afternoon the same course was fired. ARMIGER man­aged to stand high again, but the team was on the short end of 1528 to 1318. A second course was fired the same afternoon and the police again won 1435 to 1392. Our team used the service automatic and the police used their own 38' s. This gave the police an additional advantage, but all agree that the ( Continued on Page 4.) Ensign House Detached To J. Fred Talbott Friday morning Ensign A. C. House received dispatch orders to the J. Fred Talbott. He will join this destroyer in New York, N. Y. some time during July. Since coming aboard the Hou­ston a year ago Mr. House has been attached to the Engineering Depart­ment as " A" Division Officer. The Blue Bonnet wishes him ahappy cruise in his new assignment. Navy Crew Powerful This year the Naval Academy crews have made a showing that makes the fleet proud to know that they are carrying the Navy colors. Showing rare form and strength the Navy crews have swept every meet that they have entered this year. Varsity, Junior Varsity and Plebes have out­pulled all eastern opposition and are now awaiting the final contest at Poughkeepsie, the classic of crew races, where they will meet the mighty West Coast eights. For a number of years now the Navy crews have been in the money and this year it looks like they will payoff to those who play them " on the nose." New Qualifications For Warrant Rank In accordance with Bureau of Navi­gation circular letter 15- 37 in order to provide sufficient number of candi­dates for warrant machinist, the re­quirements of Bureau of Navigation Manual article D- 6220( a) and ( b) will be waived to permit petty officers first class of the required ratings who have served on board cruising vessels and not less than one year of that time as petty officer first class to appear for examination for warrant machinist regardless of the time that the rating has been held.
