Transcript Volume II. Enroute, Panama Canal, Nov. 16, 1935 Number XLV NEW RATING QUOTA EXAMS HELD During the past week the various examining baards have given eligible candidates their examinations. Although all rates were not included in the HOUSTON quota, enough were sssigne 1 this vessel to enable a goodly number of our shipmates to climb one more rung on the ladder of success. The Blue Bonnet congratulates our shipmates who have successfully gained an opportunity for advancement. Needless to say, every man who has not done so, should complete the required courses for the next higher rate right now for there has not, in quite some time, been a better opportunity afforded for advancement. A complete list of men advanced in rating will be published next week. ^ .»■ a» CHURCH CALL TWENTY SECOND SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY THE PANAMA CANAL PERSONNEL Opening a dictionary some time ago we discovered that over a hundred thousand words were defined within the pages. That is a lot of words, and we are told other editions of the proverbial "Webster" contains even more. Someone has lightly said, "Talk is Cheap," meaning you are able to hear it without much effort.. But language is important. In spite of this fact, the vocabulary of the ordinary individual is composed of only about three thousand words. Write a four page letter home, then count the different words you employ in that letter. You will be surprised how few there are. Jesus seemed to recognize the im- Continued on page 4 Our present cruise will bring about the HOUSTON'S seventh canal transit. This great engineering feat still always holds the interest of each and everyone of us. Therefore, an attempt shall be made, in a few short words, to bring out its more interesting and outstanding features. The Canal Zone was granted to the U. S. by treaty with Panama on Feb. 26, 1904, involving an initial payment of ten million dollars, and $250,090.00 per year after the ninth year. American occupation of the Zone occured May 4, 1904, with traffic commencing August 15, 1914, although the canal was not opened officially until J my 12, 1920. Numerous landslides and the World War were contributing factors in the delay of Continued on page two HOUSTON TO ARRIVE CRISTOBAL MONDAY The HOUSTON will arrive at Cristobal, C. Z. Atlantic entrance to Canal, at 0600 Monday 18 November. She will immediately transit the Canal, arriving Balboa sometime during the afternoon of the same day. She will remain in Balboa, where it is expected she will tie up to a dock, until some time Friday, the twenty-second. During this period the Engineers will prepare for their Full Power Run which will be made on the trip to California. She will arrive in San Pedro about the thirtieth of the month and it is expected that she will depart within a day or two after her arrival for the Navy Yard, Mare Island. During her stay in the Navy Yard, the HOUSTON will undergo a three months overhaul. REENUSTED ON BOARD Haskew, S. B. Jr., CMM (AA), Vizard, J.J. PHMlc, Wooldridge, G, MM2 c, Westerfield, D.H., EM2c.
