Transcript * -.. s. s....... 5-.-.... * Volume V, Number 11 At Sea for Fleet Problem XIX 19 March, 1938 Assignment To New Construction Aboard the V. S. S. Houston At Sea .... In general, the Bureau will assign en­listed personnel to new construction surface vessels by detail and not as the result of written requests. Indiv­idual requests for this type of duty are not desired. except from men in the following categories: ( a) Men whose enlistments will ex­pire approximately within three months and who desire to reen­list for new construction. ( b) Men completing tours of duty on shore recruiting, East Coast dis­trict craft or Transportation Ser­vice. ( c) Men destined or available for general detail. All such requests will be acted upon by the Bureau at time of receipt in accordance with the requirements for the rating concerned. No waiting list will be maintained. Assignment to New Construction C;; ub­marines is made by Commander, Sub­marine Force, from qualified submar­ine personnel. Former submarine men completing tours of shore duty or a­vailable for general detail will norm­ally be ordered to a Submarine Unit ( Continued on palre 4.) 150 100 - ­150 100 - ­100 70 40 20 100 70 40 20 80 60 30 10 80 60 30 10 60 40 20 10 60 40 20 10 40 30 16 6 40 30 15 5 · Boxing- Each weight · Wrestling- Each weight t Basketball- Free throw tTug- o- War tHorse- and- Rider tPie Race Rope Climb Spar Bouts [ Shuffle Board [ Acey- Ducey · Smoker Finals- Honolulu. t Afternoon Events. 1lHappy Hour- Lahaina. [ Individual Eliminations. DIVISIONAL ATHLETIC COMPETITION Athletic Interests The Tug- O'- War on the Main Deck Aft was a howling success in more ways than one, beginning on Wednes­day afternoon, with Hank Cromwell of the ' M' Division holding down the anchor end for his gang and Big Hen­ry of the Boat Deck Gun Crew keeping his gang out of the water. Henry fell down just in time and saved the day for the fourth in one pull but the ' F' Division made them bow down in de­feat in the next. Chmura of the fourth was prominently noisy as usual and expected. Charlie Putnam, Engineer's Force Jimmy Legs, was busy getting the heavyweights of the bilgedivers on topside to partake in the affair. It seems that the lads are afraid of the afternoon sun. Come up again some day boys. The spirit of competition that is aroused in a sport of this kind is just what is needed to make a hap­py and contented ship's company more that way. We have a mighty good ship here fellows, and a mighty good crew, and some happy, carefree rival­ry and bantering back and forth is a fine thing. Now that we're plowing through the wild waves towards the sun blessed islands of the blue Pacific, and all hands are caged togeth­er for a period of two weeks or more, it behooves us to take stock of ourselves and our shipmates. What are the rest of the people on the Good Ship Houston doing? Let's just have a look in on the Gun­nery Department and their drills and goins- on. General Quarters are a lead­ing item in the orders of the day, with the incidental condition watches and so on. It also comes to mind that Pap­pyAsher has put away the rubber mal­let that he always keeps handy when turret two is about to send out her salvos, just in case someone might get a crazy notion to open a plug at the wrong time. They tell me. that Pappy is not only capable of using it but is also quite proficient at it. Next we will take a look at the Engin­eering Department, with firerooms that have a temperature at full steam of some hundred and ten degrees and in the tropics it runs up to one hun­dred thirty- five and forty. No wonder that some of the boys come up out of the holes looking like they had just come out of a turkish bath. They, too, have their difficulties at times at sea. such things as a sudden change from twelve knots to twenty- seven or so in less time than it takes to tell about it, or a sudden change of orders the other way, or maybe a fellow forgets some minor thing and all hands will be wondering how something happen­ed, though with our modern Navy that is a practically an unheard- of- thing.
