She's positively contagious." Free romance lessons! See "Casanova" of the Print Shop. Hrs. 1-2 pm. The first trans-Atlantic telegraph cable was laid on the line indicated by Lt. Maury, U. S. Navy, who was in charge of the survey made for that purpose. There were in the United States on June 1, 1936, a total of 2,398 airports and landing fields, of which 702 were equipped with night-lighting equipment. The spot where the first American flag was raised in San Francisco is now a public square, called Portsmouth Square, for the ship, U. S. S. Portsmouth, a party from this ship raising the U. S. Ensign over San Francisco, in 1846. The Navy has been granted permission by Congress to train 348 enlisted men as aviation pilots. The new pilots will be required to man the planes for the new aircraft carriers Yorktown and Enterprise, and the new cruisers to be completed in 1937. That seventy-three enlisted men were successful in passing the examination for entrance to the Naval Academy. They are to join this years' class this month. To be eligible for the examination, the bluejacket must have served aboard a vessel in full commission in the Navy for 9 months, and to have one year in the Navy and be within the age limit for entrance. That the expression in the Navy of "going to mast" probably had its origin from sailing ship days when the Captain of the ship meted out punishment for violation of the rules, by holding court at the base of the mast. Today the practice is still in use, but in addition requests from enlisted personnel are considered at this time. When called before the mast for exceptional performance of duty, in order to make commendation, is it termed "meritorius mast". If "Casanova" happens to be busy, see "Lochinvar" in the Navigator's Office. That on May 23rd, 1872, Congress passed a bill to the effect that sailors of the United States Navy should have coffee served upon arising in the morning. Seaman: "What's wrong with these eggs? They taste funny." Waitress: "Hot; nhould I know. Ask the hen. I only set the table". (Continued From Page One) As a matter of fact, ever since the last of our ships were withdrawn from that station in 1929, there has been a decided naval view that our Navy should be represented regularly by ships stationed in European waters, and the matter has come up for departmental consideration from time to time. The situation now, in the opinion of many officers, only accentuates one of the reasons for reestablishment of that station. That reason is that we should not have to rely upon ships of other countries to protect our nationals abroad. Some officers even have a sense of shame that we have had to do so. It only was a fortunate incident that the battleship OKLAHOMA with the midshipmen's practice squadron and the new cruiser QUINCY on a shake-down cruise were within comparatively short steaming distances from the troubled area when the need for them arose. Ordinarily, we would have had to send ships across the Atlantic. Moreover, there are other reasons, we already have pointed out, why an independent command of our ships should be maintained in European waters; namely, that iur flag officers should have more opportunity to exercise command independent of the fleet commander-in-chief, and that our naval personnel should have more opportunity, during their active careers, to broaden their experiences by serving in foreign waters. The President's statement may be interpreted one way or another. He did not say that he was definitely opposed to revival of the European station; he did say that he had no idea of reviving it "because of the current disturbed condition in Spain." Whether he will consent to revive it later for other cogent reasons remains for future ascertainment. ••>^ Marine Sentry: "Who are those two girls who visit the destroyers so often?" Ditto: "Oh, those are the Chase and Sanborn girls, they have a date on every can." ^ni» Have 'you written home this week?
