Special Services Officer Ensign Jim Shaw was the one who organized the party, which started with a one-hour cruise in the Bay and then a tour of the huge ship and a typical American lunch, followed by ice- cream and cake and soft drinks and an hour of cartoons. The children were also taken into the ship ' s television room, where they could see themselves on the closed-circuit TV screen. They all received gifts from Santa Claus who, in real life, is BM2 Ed Rapp, who had to cover his dark beard with a white one to play jolly Saint Nick. Then, to wind up a wonderful day, the sailors accepted the challenge of the young boys to a game of football (which the Yanks, like the British call soccer). I happen to be on board the El Paso while the party was going on, and I couldn ' t help thinking that the men of the US Navy are probably the best Goodwill Ambas- sadors that the US Government has ever had - and, I might add, the least expensive, because the money for the party came out of their own Welfare and Recreation Fund. They are also paying for the materials to do a paint job on the orphanage today. I am sure that the youngsters will long remember their big brothers in the US Navy who gave them such a good time.

The Navy said that a staff officer with Amphibious Squadron 2 received fractured ribs and a broken leg when a wave crashed into (he flag bridge of the amphibious transport dock Shreveport The unidentified officer was listed in serious but stable condition. Six other men aboard the Shreveport received cuts and bruises when the wave broke glass in the flag bridge. Spokesmen said the seriously injured officer would be taken off the ship by heUcopter when weather permitted. The Shreveport has a doctor on board. According to spokesmen, five ships of Amphibious Ready Group 2-75, returning from the Mediterranean, were to have arrived in Morehead City, N.C.. Monday to offload Marines They should have completed that task and arrived in Norfolk today. However, only one of the five ships, the amphibious cargo vessel El Paso, cleared the storm and docked In Morehead City late Monday. The others Monday evening were tiding the weather about 100 miles off the North Carolina coast, steaming slowly in a northeasterly direction to await more favorcible conditions before coming in. They were the Shreveport, amphibious assault ship In- chon, dock landing ship Hermitage, and tank landing ship Fairfax County. Spokesmen s d that the Shreveport suffered minor damage to its superstructure and antenna systems. No new arrival time for the ships was known late Monday.
