Transcript Page Four. THE BLUE BONNET USS Houston—8-15-36—900. TO REDUCE OFFICERS PER SHIP (Continued From Page One) PAID RADIO MESSAGES SAN FRANCISCO reau of Navigation lies in placing a greater degree of responsibility upon the enlisted men of the fleet. These men, many of whom are college graduates, and all of whom enjoy a high standard of intelligence and ability, will be called upon to man battle stations in the fleet that have been the traditional posts of commissioned or warrant officers." Admiral Andrews in a letter to the service stated in part: "The intelligence and competence of enlisted personnel of the Navy is higher today than it has been in the history of our Navy, and it is confidently felt that the utilization of chief petty officers and other petty officers to the full in certain battle stations and for certain administrative duties is not only necessary but will permit the navy to carry on with out reduction in its efficiency. "It is directed that all commanding officers take steps to reassign officers of their command and to train chief petty officers and petty officers to meet these new responsibilities and increased demands. Insofar as possible, permanency of detail of these enlisted men to battle stations should be maintained. "The chief of the Bureau of Navigation believes that the present situation will be met by a clear understanding of conditions by all concerned and by thorough cooperation." The HOUSTON under this plan will be reduced to a complement of twenty-eight commissioned officers. DID YOU KNOW That once in every four years, Hawaiian natives of Honolulu reap a golden harvest from the beach of Wai- kiki. A special tide that occurs only that often washes into the coral beds of Waikiki beach, rings, watches, bracelets, and gold pieces which bathers have lost while enjoying Hawaii's Riviera. That the three largest motion picture houses in the world are in New York City, they are: Radio City Music Hall (5945 seats) Roxy (5920 seats) Hippodrome (5190 seats). It has recently come to the attention of Commander Base Force that when delivery of messages through Fleet Radio Stations, is made, additional delivery charges have been collected from addressees. This proceedure on the part of the landline companies is incorrect and fleet personnel who have occasion to use the service of Fleet Shore Radio Stations should advise addressees to refuse to pay additional delivery charges. Whenever collections of "additional delivery charges" are attempted or paid an immediate report will be made in order that Commander of Base Force can make an investigation. PROPOSED NAVY RESERVE LEGISLATION (Continued From Page One) ents by eliminating many of the discriminating provisions of the present law. It provides for retirement of Reserve Officers thereby simulating a better flow of promotion. It further provides for a definite strength and length of time to reach this strength for the Naval Reserve without the number of officers and men in the Volunteer and Merchant Marine branches. This strength is based on the estimate that the peace time Fleet Reserve and Naval Reserve should be composed of 22,555 officers and 162,000 enlisted men. The question of Fleet Reserve retainer base pay for the men entering the Navy after the passage of the bill has not been decided. However, there is a possibility that the Department will recommend a change in Fleet retainer pay from one-half to one-third base pay for those men entering the Navy after the passage of the bill POST OFFICE NOTES Trans-Pacific Air Mail to the Phil- Iipines via Hawaii and Guam will leave every Wednesday until further notice.

This is a large plaza with well kept fountains and flower beds surrounded by the City Hall, Exposition Auditorium, Main Library and State Building. At the other end of Market Street are Twin Peaks with their tunnel. This tunnel is a single bore 12,000 feet long, the longest municipal tunnel in the world devoted to rapid transit purposes, penetrating the southwestern quarters of San Francisco where charming residential districts have been developed. Before leaving San Francisco to cross the Bay, one should visit the Presidio shore. Upon the hill and along its base is the Italian Quarter. Fisherman's Wharf, termed "Italy Harbor", is the headquarters of the Italian fishing fleet. It is one of the spots which makes the city so diversly picturesque and so justly popular with sightseers. Chinatown, the largest and most picturesque Chinese Quarter in America, with its Oriental bazaars, tea rooms, quaint restaurants and theaters, affords much of interest for the visitor. Golden Gate Park, acknowledged one of the most beautiful parks in America, extends over 1,013 acres, and contains many places of interest such as: The Academy of Sciences, Steinhart Aquarium, De Young Museum and Art Gallery, Japanese Tea Gardens, Children's Playground, Conservatory, Aviary, Zoo, Stowe Lake, Huntington Falls, Strawberry Hill and the Band Concourse. Mission Dolores, otherwise known as Mission San Francisco de Asis, is the oldest building in San Francisco. For more than one hundred and forty years, services have been held within these adobe walls; it was established by Padre Junipero Serra (of the order of Franciscan Fathers) in 1776. Many of the State's most notable personages and characters of early days rest in its adjoining cemetery, among them is Captain Arguello, the first Governor of California.
