Transcript Volume IV, Number 30 Navy Yard, Mare Island- Vallejo, California 23 July 1937 Houston Versus Moose Baseball Nine In Vallejo Today The Chinese used fingerprints as a signature on contracts more than 1400 years ago. Transportation Of Dependents The first steamship that crossed the No. 22- 37 limits authorization of transportation in transports to over­seas stations for the dependents of enlisted personnel below the rating of petty officer first class. The reason for this is two- fold. The demand for space on naval transports and the difficulty encountered by en­listed personnel in obtaining living accommodations which are suitable and within their means. At such sta­tions living expenses in general are very high. " Furthermore, the Bureau , under­stands that in many instances, enlist­ed personnel below the rating of petty officer first class have borrowed money from the Navy Relief Society and the American Red Cross with which to defray subsistence charges for their dependents on transports, or to pur­chase commercial transportation for them to over- seas stations. Since liv­ing expenses are so high at over- seas stations, these loans can be repaid only by extreme sacrifice. " Since enlisted personnel who bor­row money for this purpose must either undergo these sacrifices or de­fault on the loans, the Bureau does not look with favor upon the practice of borrowing money from relief or­ganizations to provide transportation to over- seas stations for dependents of personnel not legally entitled to such transportation at Government expense."

Now turn left and continue towards Sacramen­to for a distance of one mile-- total distance being about two and one half miles. On the right side one will find a grove of eucalyptus trees, and the hunting field which will be well marked. Coach " Buck" Weaver will guide the following hunters to the affray: AT 1400 TODAY the ship's baseball team will meet the Moose. Whether the Moose will succumb to a barrage of hits from the Hous­tonites, or tramp down our lads in inglorious defeat will largely de­pend on your support out there. And that means the attendance of all hands who can possibly get away. Th~ hunting of the moose will take place on their own territory. Let's all get out there Saturday afternoon and give out as many moose calls as pos­sible. Birch bark horns will be furn­ished. Congratulations U. S. S. Houston Following despatch received from ComCruDiv 4 to Houston: " 0022 Con­gratulate you on anti- aircraft battery winning their class prize 1238." Good work! Prize Money For Anti- Aircraft Practice The Navy Department has just re­leased information of awards made to antiaircraft fire control parties as a result of exceptionally creditable at­tainment in five inch battle practices for the gunnery year 1936. This means an unexpected four dollars prize mon­ey to twenty- one lucky men on the Houston. The coveted " E" was award­ed to the New Orleans, Augusta, and Astoria. The New Orleans in addition " copped off" the Daughters of Ameri­can Revolution Anti- Aircraft Trophy. A suitable notation will be made on the fitness reports of officers con­cerned. To those members of the gun crew, the Blue Bonnet. on behalf of the ship's company extends hearty con­gratulations, on the efficient manner and excellent team work, which al­ways brings results. We know that this team work will continue through 1937 and that many more will receive prize money this year.
