The "A" Division MM's have many challenging jobs and they take great pride in their accomplishment. The machine shop boys oier their talents to the Whole ship, they live up to their "can do" motto, they join hands With the MM's and if it can't be re- paired they manufacture it. The refrigeration and air conditioning gang have a never ending job. Food stowage, and air condition- ing of the ship's vital electronic spaces, the 37 drink- ing fountains, ice cream machines, and refrigerators throughout the ship are maintained. The evaporator operators are quite proud of their record. The ship has never been on Water hours and they boast of having the "show place" of the En- gineering Department.

Although men in GAL I , their work usually goes unseen, the boilermen and machinist mates in the flreroom rest easy in the knowledge that no matter how accurate and depend- bl weapons system may be, it is still useless un- e a , less the means exists to move it to the-appolnted ttl This is precisely the mission of the field of ba e. O . Boiler Division: to help provide the SGPVICGS to put ' ' ' ht time with the ship at the right place at the rig the greatest possible speed and efliciency. The problems involved in placing the ship's main propulsion plant in good operating condition were, in many respects, just the reverse of those faced in other areas of the ship. The main propulsion ma- chinery had already been proved dependable and ef- ficient on other ships. The problems, then, were those arising from thirteen years of idleness and inactivity in a ship which had never left dockside under its own power. The past year has seen these problems solved one by one, resulting .in an excellent performance.

"E" DIVISION Echo Division as all others plays a very import- ant role aboard ship. It is composed of intercommuni- cation electricians and electrician mates. These men are directly responsible for the smooth running efii- ciency of every piece of electrical gear aboard ship, from the high 750 k.W. ships service generators down to the smallest fan motors. -Even to the very equip- ment that guides the ship. - . Intercommunication electricians or I-C electric- ians are responsible for the ships service telephones, alarm systems and all other communications aboard ship. They service the gyro compass Which keeps the ship on its path. Electricians Mates fEM'sJ are responsible for the main ship service generators and all other heavy electrical equipment such as the deck Winches, anchor Windlcss, capstan motors, fire pump motors, and motor generator sets. They also service all light- ing fixtures, batteries -and small boat electrical systems. DC CENTRAL., RIGAS AND VAN DAM y The .IC's and EM's jobs slightly over lap, the IC repair and maintain the high speed gyro motors While EM's repair and maintain electrical controllers for motors. So each has some idea what the other is doing.

Although maintaining readiness within the di- vision requires thoughtful planning and hours of work, time is always found for relaxation and the lighter things in life and these men can be proud of their contributions in support of the ship's recrea- tional program. "Mike" men are found in the inter- ship activities of softball, boxing, basketball, and bowling, and periodically a salty showman ventures forth as a performer on the smoker agenda. Fall of 1959 shone with added favor on this group of men when three of their clan were brought into promi- nence as players on the GALVESTON softball team that came away with the CRULANT Softball Cham- pionship Trophy.

The shipfitters and damage controlmen have made considerable contribution to the Working condi- tions, morale, and efficiency of the ship. The damage control facilities and up-keep are the best. ,V MAY' 5- gl lk- N A ,..,.n- u... -1. 1. . 'xg Lf. .. -4" -4? if wi, ,. In f' r,.,- S I" ' .A ,,.,f f S ' v sf X ,1 ml.: 1 .

UNDERWOOD GUNNERY OFFICER GUNNERY DEPARTMENT i 4 1 1 IST DIVISION The Breeding Ground for Smart Seamanship We are responsible for the forward part of the ship commencing at the Peak and extending aft to frame 57. We carry herein the ships main battery composed of two 3-gun turrets of 6"47 maintained by our gun gang. Forward on the foc'le head are housed the ships anchors weighing 13,500 lbs. apiece and which in the past year have been dropped and weigh- ed many times. We also handle the FWD highline station consisting of both the delivery and receiving rigs. During the past 7 months we have laid our backs to the rig 33 times and have transferred and received 65 persons without mishap. The quarterdeck also falls within our spaces and sports much fancy work of original design fif we do say so ourselvesb. We be- lieve we have the smartest hallowed ground area in any Cbar nonej cruiser. The Captain's Gig and No. 1 utility boat are also a part of our division. The gig piloted by P. G. NEL- SON, BM2 always presents an example of smart sea- manship and hard work. G. W. WALTON, BMSN and J. R. CAMP, SN, maintain the utility boat in the usual top grade manner of the division. The First Division since commissioning has been conned by LT. DUFFY who was later succeeded by LTJ G TACK who is still at the helm and ably assisted by ENS COINER, the First Division golf pro. Mr. TACK who will soon become Chief of the Black Gang on a Tin Can will no doubt in later years look back at the first division as one of his most interesting and enlightening experiences and particularly in learning the art of transrnortiiication and teaching Whistle J o's how to up the porpoise.

ZND DIVISION While the splash of the anchor perks up the ears of the liberty hounds, the familiar sound of the boats being lowered into the Water by the second - 1T.7 division means that the beach can't be too far. Not only do we have the responsibility for handling the oflicers' motor boat, and the utility boats With their trusty boat booms and vvinches, but We also provide expert coxsvvains and crews to put liberty hungry sailors ashore. At sea We are often called upon to rig for fueling and replenish some thirsty "can" or maybe to break out the holystones and "rock" the teak deck. Then We have the Ufightin' 5!38's" which proved themselves so Well at "Gitmo." Here We blasted a couple of sleeves out of the sky and shattered the nerves of a pilot as We almost hit his plane. After that there were an awful lot of loading drills to brush up for the next shoot. Like everybody else on board We got our start at "pre com" school after which We spent at lot of time in Philadelphia both at the yard and on liberty. Late in the year though GALVESTON finally put to sea, and it Wasn't long before the se- cond division Was routed out on deck one stormy afternoon to pick up a pilot and his ditched airplane. We returned to Norfolk for the Christmas holidays of '58 and While supervising the ,line handlers on the pier at the deperming crib swimming fan, John Henderson BM2 took time out for a dip in the icy Waters. Chilled but happy he reported to sick bay for treatment. We finally reached the promised land of San Juan about the middle of January. There We held our first division party at Pointas Salinas an Army recreation center with a ter- rific beach. To top off an afternoon of swim- ming, softball, and volley ball We tossed the division officers into the drink. When the ship returned to Philly in April we opened the sports season with a round of softball games. Even though We Weren't too successful our courage didn't fail and in No- vember We beat the fourth division in a foot- ball game at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

The missiles are readied for flight in every respect including fuel- ing if required, at Port and Starboard Fueling Sta- tions and installation of freshly processed batteries ile Battery Shop. To aid in the mainte- nance of the missile and associated test equipment, a history of each missile and piece of test equipment is maintained by missile personnel in the Ordnance Technical Library. A "missile shoot" in general, though appearing simple, is in actuality a highly complex, co-ordinated operation involving many man-hours of preparation by Missile Division as Well as divisions concerned from the Miss with search radars, fire control equipment handling equipment. The success or failure of "missile shot" is not primarily concerned wit destruction of the target. The amount of expefi and technical data gained through long ran C ' . 0I'd1I1Q' known gg H+D1DYnD+mMno,u enables the NaV and II1iSS1l9 n the enC9 Q9 T and the prime contractors to contin- ually make improvements in the de- sign and performance of the overall system. Of the four officers and forty-one enlisted men aboard, the following are the only remaining plank owners: LTJ G Caudry, CWO Velomske, Swies- ford GSC, Harvey GSC, Williams GS1, Smith GS1 and Simmons GS2. Our first division oflicer was LT Clark who later succeeded to Missile Officer. Mr. Clark is now LCDR. LT Bilderback, now serving at White Sands, New Mexico succeeded Mr. Clark. Our pres- ent Division Officer is LTJ G Caudry. Most of the enlisted men in the divi- sion are graduates of a class "A" and class "C" school at the U. S. Naval Guided Missile School at Dam Neck, Va. The division is divided up into a day and night crew for each missile check- out area, a crew for the missile fueling stations and a crew for the missile bat- tery shop. Each missile is checked out periodically in order to keep the ship's main battery in a state of combat readiness. "FM" DIVISKQN FM division is the Missile fire control division for the USS GALVESTON. Many of this group WHS involved in the TALOS program long before the ship ' d ' the com- was commissioned, having been traine in ters at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The division is responsible for Operation, maintenance and upkeep of the Tracking Radars, The Guidance Radars, The Computer and the Weapons Direction system of the Talos Guided Mis- sile battery. ln such a complex system much of their work has had to be done utilizing new methods and oftentimes without final manuals on the equipment which meant extremely tedious work of tracing out plex Radars and Compu circuits and many sleepless nights. The work must be very closely coordinated since each unit of the system is tied together by the Missile Computer. Another function of the FM division is Instrumenta- tion and photography, both ofwhich serve the all important function of determining at any time whether the missile system is 'ready to fire. The equipment used by FM division personnel is of the latest design and contains many Electronic circuits + N L 5 S 5 ow DO You FOLD T1-us THlNG?H and ideas not used anywhere else in the nav Th division is composed of some 70 or more F.

The maintenance and operation of these machines is the job of FG Division. We maintain two plotting rooms, four directors and four radars. Our radars can also be used for navigation and communications if needed. On Aug. 28th, 29th and Sept. lst, 1959, at' GTMO, Cuba, we conducted our first anti-aircraft firing exer- cises with the 5-inch battery, using a wire enforced nylon sleeve. During this same period we conducted a successful surface exercise with the 6-inch battery using a towed sled. Our main battery plotting room is equipped with the MK 48 computer, used in shore bombardment in conjunction with the Talos Missile. To be but the gun batteries are S'E2lUd1f1g by ln readines r.

The next year however, being at sea, our celebration was smaller and quieter and was held on the Mess Deck of the- GALVESTON. While operating in the Caribbean area Captain MACMICHAEL was transferred to Quantico, Va., and Lieutenant MEETH became our Commanding Officer. He remained in command until May of 1959 when the Detachment went to Little Creek, Va., for training in Amphibious Reconnaissance, there Captain DEUTSCHLANDER, our present C.O., took over.' Shortly after our return to Philadelphia, Lt. MEETH left for Quantico and 1stLt. KENNEDY assumed the duties of Executive Oiiicer. I J l f '59 we were off on another trip.'This. time, appropriately n u y o enough, to Quantico, Ya., for another requalification and familiariza- tion.

These Irrlleg, NOB a thousand strong were berthed near the Beer a , mt , NORVA, for PreCom training. Of this thousand, some Y- odd were needed to fill the first half of OI Division. This was designated OI-1 Division and the radar gang came about . . . . . . Before meeting the ship in Philly we spent several weeks in Norfolk, Virginia, in associated CIC Training courses at Dam Neck, Fleet Training Center, and attaining practical factors in deception and evasive maneuvering in the Naval Station Cafeteria. We first met the "Gal" as a group in May and were appalled by the disorder of the frenzied shipyard work. We all agreed that our CIC layout was unique and had some function, but visualizing was hard since most of the equipment was crated, and walking minus deck plates was severely trying to even a mountain goat. But, working as closely with civilians as Navymen can, and while still trying to exhaust the east coast's variety of CIC courses, we were, by the end of November, functional both equipment-wise. and personnel-wise as can be noted by our efficient assist in controlling a distressed aircraft alongside and thus effecting a rescue in December. . Our first Christmas found the duty section joining a va1n.24-hour alert over the .AA Co-ordination net for radar or visual sightings of St. Nick with the other ships berthed in Norfolk, Virginia. ' The three months following the holiday period were gui----'--ya' spent at General Quarters together with Weapons Control Stfltlpn to complete the first successful firing of the Tales m1ss1le from a ship at sea. . Our in-port time found each man happily pursuing the diversions of San Juan and various other Caribbean ports. We returned to the blustery spring of Philadelphia sun- burned and happily looking forward to another summer of school1'ng'and Philly liberty. The schooling was accomplished and several of the division entered willingly into the emo- tional entanglements of marriage. Short-Timers left and new men arrived to be indoctrinated into our group during Gitmo training and WSEG operations in the fall of '59, Our previous training allowed us to satisfy the Gitmo Observers and we entered WSEG for our "baptism under fire" with enthusiasm. C WSEG was a new thing for all of us, being an operation as close to actual warfare as possible without shooting. Again, our training and pre-WSEG briefing came in handy and this, coupled with the latest contermeasures equipment, increased our combat efficiency a hundredfold from the first scheduled raid to the last. We have now seen another Christmas and completed more time in the Caribbean bringing us up to date, where Philadelphia Naval Shipyard is once again in sight, Here, as before, short-timers will leave and be replaced, and the radar gang will strive in the future, as we have in the past, to make the USS GALVESTON what she is. In so doing, we will satisfy our own individual pride.

At present there are Thirty-Five Electronics Technicians on board the U. S. S. GALVESTON. Of this number, Twenty-Three men make up OE Division, while the remainder are assigned to OR Division and are responsible for the Ship's com- munication equipment. The primary duty of OE personnel is the main- tenance and repair of the ship's Search and Height finding radars, and all of its associated gear, such as Radar Repeaters, Anti-Jam, and Identiiication Equipment. This may sometimes include antenna climbing, plumbing, and numer- ous other capabilities, so the shipboard Electron- ics Technician must be somewhat of a "JaCk-0f- Y i . i L 2 5.

These men are suppli- mented largely by graduates of ET "A" School, and this combination forms a smooth running and efiicient team. The division is headed by LT P. M. WIND- I-IAM, also Electronics Material Officer, and hiS capable Junior Officer, Chief Warrant Oflicer A- E. WARREN. Di- Under their leadership, the men of OE vision are doing their part in making the U. S- S' 1 GALVESTON a valuable and important additifm to the United States Navy and the Defense of our Nation.

Our softball team after its organization at San Juan Went on to compete in the semi- finals for the inter-division champion- ship While the ship was at Philadel- phia. Although heads-up ball was play- ed by the Whole team, special mention should be made of BURWELL, WAL- TON and RYDER, RR, who did an outstanding job on the playing field. On our maiden voyage We were put to the first test. In roughseas off the Vacapes area, We were called upon to help rescue three of our brothers-in- arms, Who were forced to ditch their aircraft. Our training at rescue and ,f had paid off for three grate- airmen. It was at this time that COMCARDIVTWO nicknamed us the GALLANT GAL. It was shortly after that we were again called upon to exercise our res- cue recovery detail. One of the Navy's expensive experimental high speed jet drones had gone down in our vicinity T. THGM near San Juan, We were called upon to salvage it. One catch, the self destruc- tion charge had not gone off. Under the direct leadership of DALE, BM1, who personally climbed on the drone and disarmed it, We again proved that the most diflicult task for us came in the line of duty. DALE stated after we had the drone on board that the explosive charge didn't Worry him as AS, V,, much as the sharks Swimmin him in the water. garoullfl We have also had our Share of vancements commencing with Ed.

ARNOLD COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER MMUNICATION DEPARTMENT -Y a cORaa In the beginning, there was nothing. Today, there is everything. The latest in naval communications. How did we establish this peak of existence? It was not easy. Men came aboard from far and wide. From vari- ous types of duties and stations. Represented in the radio gang were, battleships, cruisers, destroyers amphibious craft, service type vessels and shore sailors. Now came the organization, teamwork, training, We all had different ideas of how communice- tions should be.eXecuted, and our watches and re- sponsibilities started before we had a chance to get together and talk things over. Through the efforts of LT Q j gl Skorupski, Chief Russ Boner, and Chief Charles Suomela, along with Nat McCorkle, RM1, teamwork finally developed. We worked and set standards that were to be used for our river run. Communications at sea, we later knew was different. Senior men were in charge of Watches, and through them we became acquainted with com- munications, training constantly, many ofliheurs were spent in teaching. Men having this task were Phil Harris, RM2, Frank Burton, RM2, Ray O'Quinn, RM2, Virgil Reed, RM2, John Paidarm RM2. Among these who were very helpful, Frank Nalepka, RM3, Jack Jones, RMS, Joe Gerow, RM3, and Will Benton, TE QRMJS. Nickerson, TE CRMJ2, taught us tele- typewriter equipment, and how to keep it in opera- tiqn' and eventually became our L.P.0. until we re ceived a first class on December lst, 1958. The test came. We pulled out for the Caribbean to test the ship l 1 the skill of the crew, but most important, to test the Hring Capabilities of the Talos missile.

Philly, another yard period, and changes to be made. Men left, leaving us short. Then new men Came aboard, and the cycle started again. We taught these new men, and molded a new team. Then in August, 1959, to sea we went. A difficult exercise, this time with the air-force. Success! We proved we are still by far the best Navy in the world. GALVESTON is not a ship to play With, We earned our respect. Then came another rest, short but well deserved. Christmas and New Year's leave period. As always, senior men left, inexperienced men came aboard. Training continued and paid off. This brings us up to the present day. Our missile iirings went of fairly well. We are familiar with their capabilities against enemy aircraft. Now to what every man has waited patiently for, a visit to our sponsoring city, Galveston, Texas. Then on to Philly, our second home for another yard period and a well deserved rest. Who will be aboard when the ship is again ready for sea? It is hard to tell. In 21 months, 10 men are plankowners of an original radio gang of 32 men. The outcome of our iirst two years? With the help of the most modern equipment in the world, the radio gang is maintaining a constant vigil in keeping the GALVESTON in-the-know. The radio central, a battery of brains coordi- nated communications with CIC, the bridge, and the various departments of the ship. T-his is not indi- vidualityg it is teamwork, training which helps this team excel in communications. It must be reliable, have security and speed. n The GALVESTON is prepared to establish and maintain reliable communications when called upon.

"OS" DIVISION Progress is the term which best describes the history of the Signal Gang aboard the GALVESTON. The Division started to assemble in Norfolk in Jan- uary, 1958, and by March a basic nucleus of three First Class, three Second Class, two Third Class and eight Seamen had been formed. The men in this group came from many different ships and stations and brought with them different ideas on visual communi- cations and how a Signal Bridge should be run. Nall and Thomas have done a fine job in developing the Division into a working 01'gaH1Zal310H, 9-S have First Class Petty Officers Slover and Preble. By the time the ship enters the yard in 1960 most gf the Original gang will have left the ship. However, many capable new men have reported aboard, and the cycle is starting again - a new gang, new ldeas, and plenty of training. After commissioning in May, the Signal Bridge started to take shape. There wasa great deal of work to be done converting a World War II Bridge into a modern Signal Bridge. However, by the time the ship left Philadelphia the Division spaces were in good shape, and the emphasis shifted towards molding the signal gang into an efficient cohesive unit. To achieve and maintain a smooth working or- ganization requires a lot of sea duty. Thus, the Signal Gang looked forward to 1959 with expectations Throughout the year the Division developed into an increasingly effective organization, and it has proved itself in all fleet exercises. At the present time the Division can favorably compare itself to any other Signal Gang in the fleet. The advancement record for a Division this size is especially noteworthy. In the first year and a half of its existence the Division ad- vanced three men to Chief, two to First Class, four to Second Class and three to Third Class. Leadership for the OS Division has been provid- ed by the following Division Officers and Junior Divi- sion Officers: .

On the Mess Decks, these men are the MAA's and the Mess Cooks, which no ship can do Without. We often take for granted the homey atmos- phere and cleanliness of the galley mess line and of the Mess Decks. This did not come about by accident. It is due to a' lot of hard Work and long hours by these unsung heros. You will find them hard at Work almost anytime of the day or night. Their official hours are from 0500 to 1900, but from the appearance of the Mess Decks, many more "Voluntary"'hours are added. The Commanding Oflicer recognizes this effort by designating three "Messmen of the Month", the highest honor a Mess Cook can receive. sl-if ix-wx-N,fv--:--'-....,7 i- f----q-1 SHOW,-,NE GANG THE SCULLERY GANG 'LQ ,QL MESS DECKS MESSMAN OF THE MONTH AWARD i1-f rm-,...,,, M"m"""'i 'Hui-T., cHowL1NE GANG THE SCULLERY GANG , 1 L MESS DECKS MESSMAN OF' THE MONTH AWARD :Wa ' ' ' ""'vx' vc-uvnnvv-:1 1-.A -gmngnngqgqtqhv.-gg . , p., ,, ,v f ,.,, .,mWMNq ess swears S ff 1 ,M ,- M.

If it wasn't for the Sh1p's servicemen of S-3 Division, these and similar things could become Qa problem to the GAL- ' 'ce activities are established to VESTON sailor. Our Iservi ' i provide the services that one goes to a specialist on the beach for. The ship's laundry, down on the 3rd deck, .does the rough dry laundry of 1100 men twice a week, which is probably more often than it is done at home. This is in addition to the ecialty jobs on Officer and Ch1ef's laundry and the 2 sets of imliessed whites provided each man during the warm Weather. We all know the high price of haircuts on the beach - our barber shop cuts hair for nothing. Of course, all haircuts are regulation since the Captain seems to prefer them that Way, Clothing and Small Stores provides, at cost, new clothing as old clothes wear out. You would be amazed at the amount of clothing that wears out just before a personnel or sea.bag inspection. Our tailor figures he would never have to buy a cigar, if every man for whom he sews on a new crow gave him one. Just provide the heel and soles and our cobbler does a pro- fessional job that extends the life of shoes for months. Ask a real gedunk sailor what the most important piece of equipment on the ship is and he'll tell you it's our new soft ice cream machine in the soda fountain. Our Ship's Store, which provides both necessity items and a changing selection of gift items, the soda fountain and our vending machines all operate at a small profit. But it is really the crew of GALVESTON who profits since any money We make is turned over to the Welfare and Recreation fund to provide the best in entertainment programs and recreational equipment.

We have been called every- thing under the sun, but the name we usually answer to is Disbursing Office or Pay Office. In that capacity we are responsible for the disbursement of all public funds, which averages about 3150,000.00 per month. 'Because of the legality and propriety of statutes ?T i governing the validity of expenditures, we are pre- vented from channeling any funds into our own pocket. That does not prevent insinuations being cast our way. The way We hover over the expenditures of the "almighty" dollar, the impression is under- standable. Of course, the paymaster is personally re- sponsible Cout of his Docketj for any erroneous ex- penditures of public funds. Since the commissioning of the GALVESTON, there has been three Disburs- ing Officers, LTJG L. J. FAXEL, ENS G. F. GLAT- TES, and CWO-3 F. J. PAULINO. To our knowledge, they have not had to dig into their pockets, not yet anyway, but the General Accounting Office works slow, but sure. In the realm of statistics, the Disbursing Oflice has expended over three million dollars in cash on regular pay days only. Public Vouchers, for members travel, dependents travel, per diem, and Shore Patrol expenses paid since the eventful dateof 28 May 1958, total in number over four thousand. Allotments of pay registered and stopped number over a thousand. Regarding the number of pay record vouchers and other related paper work, We could tell you if layed end to end, how many times it would circle the earth or how it would equal the distance of all Talos missile shoots combined, but our slip-stick is busted.

It is well known that an in- dividual state of mind is effected by habitability and wholesome food. This is where we come in. We are .. ILA, -111 trees" ranging from stuffed peas to boneless Stuffed turkeys, and "desserts" from sugar cookies to ice cream croquettes and jubilees, lt can be seen that our job is not an easy one. It calls for ingenuity, dexterity and a lot of hard work. We think the highlight of our accomplishments was on 15 March 1959 at Barbados, British West Indies. During the ship's "Port of Call", we were host to a number of VIP's Cguests of the Commanding Oliicerj from the Island. The ship laid at anchor and was dressed in full colors. The ship's band fcanned, of courseb , played soft music while officers and guests enjoyed the reception on the quarterdeck. In the midst of all this, there was a "Smorgasbord" table spread that would have aroused the envy of ancient kings. Those who were present will readily recall that the center piece for this table was a miniature cake statue of the missile launcher with missiles in a "Countdown" position. The S-5 Division has an allowance of thirty-four men-to care for the Commanding Officer, ship's offl- cers and their guests, the 'Captain's and guest cabins, Captain's sea cabin and pantry, Wardroom, wardroom lounge, eighty-one staterooms, wardroom galley and pantry, related passageways, and three storerooms. The motto of "Sugar Five" is, "The diflicult we do immediately, the impossible takes just a little longer." responsible for the berthing, feeding and serving alll oflicers, including the Captain and Executive Of- cer. We have the honor of being the first mess to serve a meal aboard this ship. Since that time, we have prepared and served over three thousand meals amounting to ninety thousand rations.

This group of "originals" included PNC Erickson, YNC Lane, YNC Squires, YNC Olin, Moffitt, Morrissey, FIOFGTICC, HCWICFSOTI, Wingeff, Newton, Slage, Nee Reid, Siracuse, Kehr, Aronow, Barlow, Davis, and Gibbs. These men were headed by CDR R. K. Joslin, LTJG John A. Hansen and CWO John W. Holland. From a brief stumbling start the feather merchants soon were processing all the plank-owners-to-be in a smoothed out operation and champing at the bit - eager to occupy work spaces aboard. Transition to eflicient operations of a Captain's OfHce came under the leadership and organizing of the old pros Chief Ship's Clerk CUncle J ohnj Holland and YNC Clinton R, "Skippy" Lane, with PN 2 W.

M. f'Dick" Morrissey unlimbered his trusty and well used bunk chain which was wielded with gusto and ability. Under these auspices 'X-Div was founded and flourished. At this stage Personnel was operating out of RecSta and Captain's Office out of Bldg. 634. Each had "borrowed"la bit here, a 'blt there, but mostly relied on that commodity known as mid-night oil to solve the many problems which had arisen. As new faces appeared in X-Div they were quickly looking lovingly down on the business end of a typewriter or comparing the papers in front of them to Mt. Everest. July '58 saw a migration from cramped offices on the beach to the more spacious compartments on board ship with their large ornate desks and beautifully upholstered chairs.

Mr. Vispo collected his brood. and moved the entire Oflice back to Bldg. 634 for a 6 week st1nt.xReturn onboard meant more working spaces and a still smoother operation. So well was X-Div performing at the close Of 59, It has been said by his crew that Mr Vis O authored BuPers Manual with only casual! help from the N agy Department. Other additions to X-Div. were S. E. "Stuie" Jeans Chaplain's yeoman and operator of WGAL, the ship's radid and entertainment station featuring nerve-wracking rock and roll as well as fine classical music and news reporting. LTJ G Arthur V. N. Brooks took over in Mid-59 as the Legal and Training and Education Officer. Although Mr. Brooks is at present not a member of the bar his acumen for matters Judicial would well justify his being remembered as the fmodern day Clarence Darrow of the fleet." Further changes included combining the Chap1ain's Oflice and Legal into-a single working space. Divisional highlights included Commendatory Mast for Campbell, Erickson, Lane, N ee, Newton, Slage, and Wingert. Sports activities for X-Div generally consisted of keyboard gymnastics, mental gyrations, and weight lifting general oflice equipment. However, X-Div went out like a lion for the softball and bowling tournaments but unfortunately came in like a lamb. Professional printing on a- high speed press has produced the major printing for GALVESTON, first under Florence and later under Davis. This printing included the ship's paper HTALOS BOOSTER," the journalistic efforts of Stam, Oxment and Bob Ball. These men also produced the Daily News, an at-sea publication. From a good start in '58 under Mr. Hansen to the date of this writing in '60 under LTJ G Vispo, LTJ G Brooks and CWO Holland, these have been your X-Div shipmates with the plank-Owners in the first grouping.

GALVESTON QCLG-35 was commissioned with a hearty but inexperienced group of quartermasters. Though short on experience, Navigation can be proud of her division because today she is one of the best divisions in the fleet. Training by our first Navigator, LODR HOUGHTON and Ass't Nav. ENS YOUNG, Know serving with a UDT out of Little Creek, Va.D proved to be a great help to the men of our division, the men who stand watches on the bridge and the ship herself. Since the ship was commissioned on 28 May 1958, four men who were in the division still play an impor- tant role in the Navigation Dept. They are: Bruce E. Belmer QM3, Monty D. Posey QMSN, Donald R. Horton SN .and Dennis E. Jenkins SN. Others who were on the ship when commissioned but not in the Dept. are: Ralph R. Boulette QMSN, Harvey Guimond SN, George Kettel SN and Patsy Richardi SN. The Division now consists of Navigator LCDR W. T. REILLY, Ass't Nav. ENS CRUMPACKER, 1 Leading Petty Oflicer DONALD H. BLOCH QM1, Division Supervisor EVERETT MCNABB QM2 and 15 more quarterrnasters. . . In the past examinations the dept. is proud to have two more rated QM3's and one designated QMSN. Monty Posey QM3, Dennis Jenkins QM3 and Ralph Boulette QMSN. ' - Training QM's was rough for the past months, as Navigation consists of accuracy in all phases of its work. Our present Navigator LCDR REILLY has set up a training program which has proved to be the best training for this type work. We have men who have been in the division only a few months who are now qualified to go up for 3rd class, due to this pro- gram set up by Mr. Reilly. ' LT. DUFFY, one time Ass't Nav, has helped the division in all respects. We were sorry to see him leave us to go to Gunnery as he Was sure a good divi- sion oflicer as Well. Though We only have a few men in the division, all are interested in sports and play them Well. During intra-mural softball competition, Navigationuwas a threat to all divisions. The division also supplied two men to the shin's softball team Who won the 1959 Crulant Softball Championship in Boston. They are James Kennedy SN and Ralph Boulette QMSN. We are proud of our Navigation Dept. and our intention to make it a better dept remains of prime importance. Our motto: "We navigate GALVESTON safely." The nucleus begafl f0F1Y1iHg ifl Jamlilfy 1958 for the Medical Department when HM1 Castle, HMC Klein and HM1 Northrup reported to Receiving Sta- tion, Philadelphia, Pa., f01' DFG-C0111 3115 duty in the GALVESTON. At the same time two HM2's, Graham and Rosenbackg five HM3's, Bowers, Lassman, Ste- vens, Upton and Vayquez slowly reported to rec! sta, Norva., for pre-com and about 1 March 58 all had reported. Shortly after we began to function as 3 team, a Division. First aid lectures were started, training Film and demonstrations and the practice to be able to do and know became a routine for all hands. We were in business. Records were transferred and the pro- cedure of checking and making lists and transferring certain rates to Philly which continued then until a week before 28 May 58 when the last bus load left. the Norfolk area. Meanwhile those in Philly had their hands full too in setting up a unit and receiving records of people checking in, running down the Medical Dept. supplies and equipment, checking the sick bay spaces on the ship and handling stacks of stencils - mimeograph paper used in printing up Medical Dept. regulations, instructions and orders for all spaces of the department and as the work load progressed in Philly a Norva man was sent in to help out until about 1 April 58 our first Medical Offi- cer W. L. Johnson, reported aboard and half the crew was now in Philly. About the end of April the work of getting department gear aboard started and also more men had moved into the area which helped as it became apparent the bulk of the department was needed with the ship, this done, the spaces took shape and on 28 May 1958 set the first section watch in the Medical Department. 15 August 1958, and all river runs completed, we departed the Philadelphia area for NB, Norfolk, Va., and points South to the Caribbean Sea and re- turn on 1 April '59. Between these dates and various port visits a rescue at sea was accomplished with a Navy plane in distress having a three-man crew aboard which put into action the entire Medical De- partment by manning two of our boats, one on each side of the ship and providing the doctor and corps- man on the rail and alerting the sick bay and op erating room ready for the results of the victims of a crash landing of a Jet plane The angels were with all of them as they got out of the plane swam to the ship and brought aboard none the worse for a good shaking up and drenching A couple of hours rest and they were all as good as new Back in port now for a five month stay new faces arrived reliefs for short timers schools and change of duty stations and in July the arrival of our present Medical Ofiicers LT L I KOCH MC USNR Asher Johnson Lowe and Parham The Department plank owners are Northup HM1 and Chief Klein MEDICAL gc DENTAL DEPARTMENT and others as Lindstrom, Gill, Cary, Luescher, Helmsi wwf ,Q uw WZ Mia 'Y m"""'v-wm..w- 14-, fe ,W W 5 ' .

Westmore is a member of the Galveston-Texas City Pilots and chairman of the Chamber of Com- merce-proposed merchant marine academy committee. It was good fortune it was his "turn" to bring in a ship, and that ship happened to he the one that has set Gal- veston agog. But lt was old stuff, in a way his piloting a Navy ship. For i addition to his years of servl on merchant vessels, he was gmu commander of more than 100 ves sels engaged in minesweeprlng when World War ll was ended.

The Talos ls n new Navy weapon designed chiefly to blast into obllvlon enemy airplanes at- tempting an attack. 'The missile .lm 1-nay. ba fired at surface craft. The program dates back to the closing months ot World War ll when the Navy Bureau of Ord' nance requested the Johns Hop- llns University Applied Physics Laboratory at Silver Spring, Maryland, which had developed the proximity fuse for shells. to suggest a means of combatting the Japanese kamikaze menace. After several months study. lab- oratory scientists advised the dc- ,velopment of li supersonic ramjet propelled guided missile, The Bureau of Ordnance auth- orized the developement and it was givm the code name of Bum- blebee. Just why this name was chosen is in doubt but it is sigg nificant that ln many APL offices and laboratories nt Silver Spring there hangs on the wall the follow Ing: ,"According to recognized acro- Yteclmical tests, the bumblcbce cannot fly because of the shape and weight of his body in reln'ion ln total wing area.

A rep- lica ot'this "flying stovcpipef' as it had been dubbed, has been given an honored place in the National Air Museum of thc- Smithsonhin Institution as the vtorld's first supersonic ramjet engine. The Bumblebee research and development program was carried on from the beginning in the same pattern as had been so successful in producing the proximity fuse. Under this pattern thc Applied Physics Laboratory acted as the central laboratory providing tech- nical guldance and supervision to a number of university :-.nd in- dustrial organizations known as associate contractors. This was known as the Section T Pattcm. Slncc the field of supcrsonlcs was virtually virgin territory, re- search was carried on in aero- clynamics. propulsion, radar, guid- ance and control systems, lafunch- ing, warheads, structure, teleme- tcring, simulation. ground and flight testing, A missllc embody- ing the concepts underlying TA- LOS was thc objoctivc of the program from the start.

A specific missile design was chosen to incorporate fn lm- proved ramjet. the dual guidance system and other features calcu- lated to give long range, high lethality, and great accuracy. The development, engineering and testing of the advanced de' sign, proceed to a point where in January 1955. a large Naval Industrial Ordnance Plant to manufacture the missile was for- mally opened. This plant at Ml- shawnka, Indiana, is operated for the Navy by the Bendlx Aviation Corporation, which had been a Bumblebee associate contractor since the inception of the pro' gram, Pioneering Achievements ln a program with such ad- vanced objectives ss thoaeof Talos, it is to be expected that many pioneering achievements will be made, and such has been the casc. Not only did the workers in this program make the first demonstration that the ramjet was a practical engine for pro- pulsion of supersonic missiles, they also made the first flights of fully controlled missiles pow' ered by these engines and proved the reliability of the engine in numerous long range flights. The Talos booster set a new level in the size and performance of solid fuel booster rockets. TALOS was also the flrst missile to employ a. dual guidance system whose cu-'ncy at short and long ranged has been demonstrated repeatedf ly.
