Transcript , Of' Volume I SHIP'S CHRISTMAS PARTY The U. S. S. HOUSTON will give a children's Christmas Party for ap- ­proximately 60 children, between the ages of 5 and 10 years, on Christ­mas Day. The children will be those recommend, ed by the LPs Angeles County Community Christmas As­sociation and will include only those who otherwise would not have the proverbial Christmas joys all child­ren should have. Funds will be obtain­ed by voluntary contributions from personnel of the U. S. S. HOUSTON, supplemented as necessary by Ship's Service Store profits. It is hoped that the men will contribute one doliar each in order to make this party a memorable one for the children con­cerned, as well as for the men. Be­lieve me, if you have never seen the inarticulate joy in the faces of child­ren expecting nothing, when your in­dividual effort has provided gifts and entertainment, you have something for which to live; and if you have, ­well, you know what is in store for you in seeiiig the children open their presents and eating their fill of good food made possible only by your gen­erosity. As this is a real ship's party, mem­bers of the crew are cordially invit­ed to have their families on board for Christmas dinner and to enjoy this Yuletide party with our guests. If men concerned will turn in to Com­mander Ingraham, names, ages, and sex of children invited under this provision, a suitable toy will be pro­vided and delivered by Santa Claus. It is proposed to have HOUSTON boats pick up the children at Pico St. landing about 1030 Christmas Continued on page three Long Beach, California. SHIP'S DANCE Word has reached the entel" tain­ment committee by rumor that the crew is in favor of a real ship's dance at Long Beach shortly be­fore or after Christmas. From the way the cry was taken up by the entertainment committee, it looks as if the after scuttlebutt has started something good. All you members of the Lonely Hearts club had better take your pen in. h.. a. n. d. SHIP'S SERVICE ACTIVITIES The following letter has been re­ceived from the Bureau of Navigat­ion and is quoted below for the in­formation of the fleet: " Reference: ( a) Regulations for Ship's Service Activities ( Ashore), 15 March, 1930. " 1. The Bureau has recently re­ceived numerous complaints, particul­arly from retail jewelers' associat­ions, to the effect that ship's service activities are illegally competing with private enterprises by not enforcing strict compliance with the letter and spirit of paragraph 507, reference ( a) " 2. The Bureau of Navigation is becoming seriously concerned with these complaints since they may, un­less corrective measures are taken, e­ventually result in the enforced dis­continuance of ship's service stores, together with the unquestionable ben­efits derived therefrom by personnel of the service. Although it is not de­sired to interfere with commanding officers' perogatives in this connect­ion, the Bureau considers that when­ever any member of the naval service procures - from ship's service stores materials for any other purpose than his own use, he should be derived of ship's service store privileges. Number XIV SAN PEDRO EXPOSITION The San Pedro Junior Chamber of Commerce, Inc., is to conduct its second annual Exposition of Progress December 1 to 6 inclusive. There are many elaborate forms of entertain­ment planned to which the officers and enlisted men of the United States Navy are cordially invited to attend. The events of the program begin with an elaborate display of floats denoting a Historical Pageant, man­ed by the people of Pueblo de San Pedro, preceded by the Los Angeles Motorcycle Patrol and lead by the Fort McArthur Army Band. The line of march is along Harbor Boulevard from Third St., to Sixth St., then on Sixth St., to Pacific Ave., then south on Pacific Ave., to Navy Field and passes the reviewing stand at Navy Field.

Due to the limited seating capacity at Navy Field, only Navy men will be admitted. At 1900 there will be another pa­rade known as the Exposition of' Pro­gress Parade and will be attended by many officials of California and the Los Angeles Police Escort, Fort Mc­Arthur Army Band, and screen stars through the courtesy of the Warner Bros., Studios. This parade forms at Sixth St., and Pacific Ave. Also at this time there will be a free Navy Dance for all enlisted men, featuring Bobby Lutze and his Naval Cadets. Sunday, Dec. 2, from 1330 to 1600, Jeff Annino and his orchestra, and featuring Helen Newmeyer will en- Continued on page four
