Transcript Volume VI, Number 9. San Pedro, California 4 June, 1938. DETECTIVE ISS U E CAME THE DAWN AT., LONG BEACH! Hell broke loose on the dock. Every­one talked and shouted. There was a slight tendency of the mob spirit as the liberty parties surged back and forth. The discipline which the Navy had instilled in its fighting men and for which they have always been fa­( Continued on Pag. 2.) the fog did not reveal was the fleet. Only the solitary form of a heavy cruiser rode to anchor. It was the Houston. The other proud grey sil­houettes of steel no longer graced the harbor. No boats were racing to Pico Landing to pick up the liberty parties. The fleet had been stolen under the protection of the fog. Houston sailors filed on the float and into the boat. The sailor who had held the others with his mood felt his way forward, then leaped into the yawning launch. .~ YE GADS!! THE FLEET WAS 5 TO LEN DURING­LAST/~ JGHT' 5 FOG .• Then without warning; without any further premonition of what was to occur, the fog lifted. It lifted so com­pletely that not a vistige or a stream­er of vapor remained. But the pathos, the sadness, all the sorrow in the world welled in the hearts there on that dock that morning. What the sudden disappearance of the fog re­vealed, or bettel, what the lifting of passengers hungrily. The harsh scraping of a boat, bearing the letters HOU, grated in upon their silence like an ominous presager of a coming storm. A single boat, the first of the morning, had knifed its way through the fog. It awaited its Standing expectantly and awaiting a boat, yet alike the others, in being unaware of disaster, a Houston sailor was talking to his pals of the night before. He talked about home - of his mother, and of his dear old Dad. Words filled with poignant meaning hushed their bantering laughs so that in the group around him only the soft southern drawl of his voice caressed the silence. In awe the others listened, then in sympathy they wept together. Home- sicknessness had banded them a little closer together this morning, of all mornings. GRIM, tight lipped countenances would have replaced the ones wreathed in smiles and short husky words the careless banter of the sail­ors had they suspected a hint of the impending tragedy. Soon their little Naval world was to topple in on them like an egg shell house in a flurry of wind. No evidence now of the dark sinister force which had wreaked its vengance under the quilting protec­tion of the fog, but in a few minutes all would be revealed.
