Transcript Volume IV, Number 48 ORGANIZATION OF THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT The Engineering Department is 01' ­ganizeJ with the Engineering Officer as Head of Department and is respon­sible only to the Executive and Com­manding Officers as are all other de­partments aboard ship. Directly under the Engineering Officer are the First Assistant and the various Division Of­ficers. The Engineer­ing Department is divided into four divisions, the " A" Auxiliary; HB" Boiler; HE" Elec­trical; and " M" Main Engine. As a rule each divi­sion has a line of­ficer and warrant officers as its Di­vision Officers. The Auxiliary Division, better known as the " A" Division, has care of all boat en­gines, evaporat­ors, ice machines, machine shop, the heating system throughout the ship, and the sir­en and whistle. There is also the general repair gang, which does all acetylene weld­ing and brazing. Continued on Page 2.

On the floor­plates, oilers and pumpmen idling in a cool blower stream, no wor­r i e s, everything " maskee"! Wise­cracks, laughing; the Officer of the Watch seriously explaining the mysteries of the steam turbine to a lad not long a way from the farm. The Chief En­gineer hits the throttle platform accompanied by his Assistant - the zero hour isn't far away now. Cling­ing heat; sweat ContinUed on Page 2.
