Transcript Volume III Long Beach, California, June 20, 1936 Number XXIII VICE ADMIRAL HEPBURN RETURNS FROM EAST COAST Friday, 16 June, Vice Admiral Hepburn returned by train from the East Coast where he conferred with the Sec. of the Navy and Chief-of-Naval Operations. He was preceded by several days by Captain (SC) Morsell, Commander Buchanan, Commander Malloy and Lt. Comdr. Redman, who are members of his Staff. It is expected that his Chief-of-Staff, Captain Pickens, will arrive some time over the week-end. VICE ADMIRAL HEPBURN TO BE RELIEVED WEDNESDAY At nine hundred Wednesday morning Vice Admiral Hepburn will turn over his command of the Scouting Force to Rear Admiral Tarrant. Immediately afterwards he will depart for the PENNSYLVANIA where, at ten hundred, he will relieve Admiral Reeves as Commander-in-Chief, U. S. Fleet. Upon assuming their new commands, Admiral Hepburn will fly a four star and Admiral Tarrant a three star flag. NEW SENIOR AVIATOR REPORTS FOR DUTY This past week Lt. (jg) T. O. Dahl reported aboard for duty and relieved Lt. H. D Felt as Senior Aviator of the HOUSTON Unit. Before coming to the HOUSTON, Mr. Dahl was attached to VF-6 (SARATOGA). We wish him happy landings in his new job. IMPRESSIVE FUNERAL SERVICE HELD ABOARD SHIP All Hands Bade Chief Watertender Adcock A Sorrowful Farewell As He Made His Last Trip Ashore. The usual high spirits that prevail on our return from a long cruise, were visibly dampened by regret for the untimely death of our shipmate, "Pop" Adcock. The Grim Reaper had seen to it that this homecoming was his last. As the band played the funeral inarch, the ship's colors were brought to halfmast and ten men of the Engineering Department carried the flag-draped casket to its place on the Well Deck where the Commanding Officer, the Executive Officer, the Heads of Departments, a Marine Guard of Honor and all the men of the Engineer's Force stood with bared heads at attention. (Continued on Page Two) NAVY SENDS DELEGATION TO TEXAS CENTENNIAL A selected unit of one hundred native Texans, now serving in the U. S. Navy, are now stationed at the Texas Centennial Exposition. These men, for the most part, are specialists in the different ratings, including: Radiomen, Gunner's Mates, Electricians, Hospital Corpsmen, Cooks and Buglers. Ensign Bly, a former HOUSTON Officer, is one of the Officers attached to this detachment. Our ship is well represented at the Exposition with its Knot Boards and Motor Launch model. R. O. T. C. UNITS. MAKE CRUISE The R. O. T. C units from four universities, embarked in eight destroyers, are now making a training cruise to Panama. The North Western Unit, which went from Chicago by special train, embarked 16 June in the LEARY and HERBERT at the Washington Navy Yard and departed the same day. They rendezvoused the 16th. at sea with six other destroyers carrying the units from Yale,-Harvard and Georgia Tech. The cruise will carry them directly to Panama, going by way of the Crooked Island Passage. Arriving in Panama 22 June they will stay there until the 26th. at which time they will retrace their course to New York. During the return trip it is planned to fire S. R. B. P, with the students taking charge of the firing On the sixth of July the ships will depart from the Brooklyn Navy Yard taking the units to their various points of departure. (Continued on Page Four) ADMIRAL REEVES DECORATED BY KING NEPTUNE The Panama-American of May 23 gives an interesting account of a special honor given to Admiral J. M. Reeves, Commander-in-Chief, U. S. Fleet, on May 20.
