Transcript Volume VI, Number 4. Arriving At Long Beach, Calif. 27 April, 1938. Fond Memories Of Hawaii FAREWELL Hawaii! ! We took our leave of you with mixed emotions - piquant yearnings for home as against the memories of a beauti­ful paradise. Yet in our mind's eye we reverie, as we always shall, in the remembrances of your enchantin~ sce­nery and frank hospitality. Skies that one moment palled with a limitles~ expanse of indigo, and in the next poured wat- W er from towering white vapor masses. A ~ un that glowed like molten metal, then wa~ swal-lowed by a cloud. This was Hawaii. Anchored in a purple o­cean so clear that you could count each link in the anchor chain, we saw far below the cragged fantastic shapes of coral. In 76 degree fahrenheit sea water, pastel tinted fish raised effer­vescent bubbles as they made sudden scurries in the depths. Then remember how the wind rippled through the cane fields. How it suddenly picked up and whist­led angrily. Yet through it all there was another rustle - a restlessness and quiver of growing things. Ver­dant, lush vegetation grew everywhere. It filled the eye with a solid blob of green, unbroken and unrelieved to the sea. To those who made the tours; the Pali, the Blow Hole, the Upside Down Falls, Haleakala, the other major attractions; these brought ( Continued on page 2.) Card Of Thanks AT THE time of the death of my mother, 11 April, the Ship's Welfare Committee sent flowers and a message of condolence to my home. I wish to thank my shipmates for their sincere feeling and sympathy that was shown by them at this time. Sincerely, E. J. Loyd, SM3c.

Rolling Horne To Long Beach So I says to the Officer of the Watch, " ease her up to thirty knots, we're headin' for Long Beach." Seeing that the skipper was grabbing off forty winks at the time, this was sure using the old gonk. " Left full rudder," I yelled. " Left full rudder," ~ hriekedback the wheel- That was the way we left, easing up to thirty with the rudder ~ d for the San Pedro Breakwater. The ocean boiled and the wind howled as we tore down the groove for Long Beach. In less time than you know we steamed right up to the an­corage, dropped the mudhooks in a ( Continued on pag" 2.) Of course, there was a lot of ruckus raised when we were swinging clear of the formation ( I hadn't said nothing to nobody), but it didn't phase me in the least. " Interrogatory, interrog­atory." " Do you have a casualty?" " What are you doing?" " Return to formation." " Puzzled, please explain". These were flashed to me as the old ship started coming away from the pack.

I knew if they kept it up I would get darned good and mad.
