Transcript Volume IV San Diego, Calif., 13 February, 1937. Number VII ABRAHAM LINCOLN GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE OPENING CHICAGO DAMAGE BLAME FIXED The following extracts are taken from Lincoln's personal autobiography: "I was born February 12, 1809, in Hardin County, Kentucky. My parents were both born in Virginia, of undistinguished families—second families, perhaps, I should say. "My father, at the death of his father, was but six years of age, and he grew up literally without education. He removed from Kentucky to what is now Spencer County, Indiana, in my eighth year. We reached our new home about the time the state came into the Union. It was a wild region, with many bears and other wild animals still in the woods. There I grew up. There were some schools, so-called, but no qualification was ever required of a teacher beyond 'readin', writin' and cipherin' to the rule of three. If a straggler supposed to understand Latin happened to sojourn in the neighborhood, he was looked upon as a wizard. There was absolutely nothing to excite ambition for education. Of course, when I came of age, I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read and cipher. . . but that was all. I have not been to school since. The little advance I now have upon this store of education I have picked (Continued on Page Four) ^•••>i PROMOTION Word has been received of the selection of Capt. J. E. Curry, Commanding Officer of the Houston's Marine Detachment, for promotion to the rank of Major, USMC. Congratulations Captain Curry! May this promotion be merely another step up the ladder of your career. Newspaper dispatches from the Pacific coast have made known the decision of the directors of the new Golden Gate bridge at San Francisco to defer the dedication ceremonies, incident to the opening of the bridge to traffic, until May 21. The original date that had been set for the opening was May 1, the postponement being reported as being due to uncertainty regarding the availability of the U. S. fleet to take part in the dedication if held on the earlier date. It is understood by the bridge and civic authorities that the fleet will depart for sea about the middle of April for (Continued on Page Two) SERVICE PAY QUESTION It is hardly probable according to the Army and Navy Register, that the uniformed services of the Federal Government—viz., Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Coast and Geodetic Survey, and U. S. Public Health Service—will be included in the proposal, sponsored by Senator Pat McCarran, of Nevada, to raise the pay of employees of the Government. The Senator states that he had entertained some such thought, but had reached the conclusion that to include personnel of the military-naval services would make his bill unwieldy to the point of almost certain defeat. The thought of pay increases for the armed services is meritorious, he said, but to include it in the present bill for federal employees would defeat both purposes. (Continued on Page Four) REMEMBER our invitation to the dance at the BROADWAY PIER BALLROOM tonight! ■»■ ^ ■»■ ■■' ■»■ ■»■ ■»» ■»■ '■' '■■ ■»■ ■ ' ■»■ The last chapter—except the actual paying the money—has been written in the case of the British motorship "Silverpalm" which cut a great gash in the port side of the cruiser Chicago as a result of a collision in foggy weather in the early morning off the coast of California near Point Sur* on October 23, 1933. In a special report, filed with and approved by the federal court at San Francisco on January 29, the damages assessed against the Silver Line Ltd., operators of the Silverpalm, aggregate $374,034. Of this sum $295,683 is due the U. S. Government, and the balance, $78,351, is due in death claims as reimbursement to the heirs of the three members of the Chicago's crew who died as a result of injuries. The master of the Silverpalm was held responsible for the collision in a court trial in the federal court sitting at San Francisco. It was found that the Silverpalm was making "an excessive rate (Continued on Page Four) <■!■» MAILING OF UNMAILABLE MATTER The U. S. Criminal Code constitutes it an offense to deposit for mailing or cause to be delivered by mail, matter declared unmailable by the Postal Laws and Regulations. The Bureau of Navigation has instructed Commanding Officers to see that all persons under their command are informed of this fact. Navy mail clerks will be required to inquire as to the nature of the contents of all parcels presented for mailing in order that unmailable matter may not be placed in the mails from any branch of the Navy mail service.
