Transcript Volume VII, Number 2. San Francisco, California 9 July, 1938. What to see In San Francisco San Francisco fairly exudes cosmopolitan atmos­phere. Having a long and glorious past which reached great impetus during the gold rush days it is one of the most interesting cities in the world. One can still see remaining remnants of those bygone days. In this beautiful city of today one can visit many interesting places and soon feel that certain some­thing which only San Francisco can impart. Here are a few places to vi­sit: Barbary Coast - On Pacific be­tween Grant and Kearney. This sec­tion of the city shows what remains of the honky tonks, dance halls, sa­loons, gambling dens, and houses of evil repute which soon separated the adventurer from his roll. After the earthquake of 1906 the " Coast" slow­ly crumpled into the limbo of time. Now only a few deserted buildings stand. Chinatown - On Grant and Stockton between Pine and Jackson. Here one can see China seemingly transported from the Far East into the heart of a modern city. Chinese markets, the­atres, restaurants, and marts give one a taste of the oriental. China­town built up around a Chinese tele­phone exchange soon after it was es­tablished. This is the only Chinese telephone exchange in America. Fisherman's Wharf - North Shere or Beach. Fisherman's Wharf is unique in the distinction that one can get sea food cocktails of any American shellfish on a minute's notice. Huge ( Continued on Page 4.) San Francisco Bridge Largest in World N OW that we have ar­rived in San Francisco here are some of the statistics,- You know, those things don't lie. The two largest items at San Francisco are the two bridges, San Francisco- Oakland bridge and the Golden Gate bridge. In 1930 San Fran­cisco had a population of approxi­mately 650,000 and Oakland about 300,000. With the completion of the Bay Bridge the two were joined and they made a combination something on the order of Brooklyn and Manhat­tan but not as large. The Gate bridge also enlarges the aggregate popula­tion but not in the same proportion as the population is largely urban. The San Francisco- Oak­land Bridge is the longest and most costly of bridges to date. The cost was $ 77,000,000. During the construction of this bridge 24 lives were lost and 1100 persons injured. The bridge as it stands consists of 2 suspension spans of 2310 ft., 3 suspension spans of 1160 ft., and 1 cantiliver span of 1400 ft., a total of 9500 ft. in spans only. The approaches are not consid ered in the above description. ( Continued on Page 4.) A Fish Net Comes Aboard As SOON as we dropped anchor off San Francisco the other day, a boat hove alongside and pre­sented us with a fine fish net - cork floaters and all. This caused the scut­tlebutt to bubble merrily and many were the opinions given out for its presence aboard. Still your tongues and you shall hear ( the midnight ride of Paul Revere - for rhyme only). The California Fish and Game Commis­sion gave us a surveyed fish net to be used on board, nut as a fishing net to catch the finny denizens of the depths but as a medicine ball stopper, a barrier on both sides of the quar­terdeck to prevent those balls which are thrown with more strength than accuracy from falling into the ocean. We wish to thank the California Fish and Game Commis­sion for this gift. No more will it be possible for 4 medicine balls to be thrown over the side in the course of a single day as was done during the last cruise. Yes, the officers take cred­it for this remarkable feat. • I • Nautical Questionaire What are the following: 1. Fid? 2. Commander? 3. Dead light? 4. Lizard? 5. Devil's horn? 6. Lubber's line?
