which had just joined the squadron.
'The GEARING sailed again for the Mediterranean
inkearly December and was caught in a severe storm
off the Azores Islands, with serious damage re-
sulting.. Emergency repairs were effected at Gi-
braltar, and the ship then proceeded to Naples
where more extensive repair work was done by
the ship's force and the USS TIDEWATER during
the ensuing month. Late in January, -the GEARING
resumed her tour with the Sixth Fleet, visiting
Iskende run and Izmir, Turkey.
Duringthe summer of 1958 the GEARING took
part in the combined Midshipman-FleetExercjfse
Cruise to Northern Europe. A combination of
interesting ports -- OPorto, Portugal, Copen-
hagen, Denmark, and Antwerp, Belgium -- com-
bined with short uns cheduled stops in Vigo, Spain,
and Plymouth, England, made this a memorable
cruise. Awide variety of fleet operations proved
the Gearing to be ready and able to carry out any
missionto which she may be assigned.

Our Favorite Gas Station
To the Rescue
A sailor who jumped overboard
into mountainous 60-foot waves to
rescue a man washed over the side
from a destroyer has been awarded
the Navy and Marine Corps Medal.
The medal was presented to
Lawrence W. Beckhaus, GM2, UsN,
by RADM John C. Daniel, USN, then
Commander, Destroyer Force, Atlan-
tic Fleet, in ceremonies aboard Uss
Salamonie CAO 261. The award, one
of the highest peacetime awards
given in the Navy, was presented to
Beckhaus for his daring rescue of
George D. Schack, SN, USN, who was
swept overboard from the destroyer
Uss Gearing CDD 7101.
The incident occurred while
Salamonie was performing emer-
gency refueling of Gearing off the
coast of Spain during an Atlantic
stonn. Schack, engaged in iettisoning
loose gear to lighten the destroyer,
in danger owing to heavy weather
to bring him alongside, but was un-
able to turn sharply enough to get
the victim to leeward, and drifted
away from the tiring man.
Salamonie turned into the wind
for a second approach and was suc-
cessfully maneuvered to the wind-
ward side of the man. Meanwhile,
more than 30 lookouts kept Schack
The heavy seas and 60-knot winds
made it impossible to lower a life-
boat. Beckaus, with the permission
of his commanding oflicer, dived
over the side. After a 10-minute
swim the gunner's mate reached the
exhausted but still conscious seaman.
With the tanker rolling' as much as
25 degrees in the trough, Salamonie's
crew heaved the line in. Both men
came on board simultaneously as the
oiler took a huge wave that swamped
the well deck.
Schack was found uninjured, but
was sent to sick bay for shock treat-

History rolls back --- you stand on the threshold of things and events which influence your
life even today.
A moment only and you are again in the present, bustling and hurrying through streets lined
with fashionable shops and crowded with contemporary people.
Another lightening transformation and the symbolic surroundings bring you in contact with
man's eternal hope for himself through the faith in his God.

It recalls you to a land of a different culture and of different ways ---yet a land ,
of friendship and of intriguing mystery.
Again you are in Izmir ---- and you remember the ships party, the tour to
P SIS, t e days and nights seasoned with the distinctive flavor of the East.

Among the World's hospitable people, the Portugese must rate very high. Re-
member the many invitations we received to go to people's private homes ? Or
the party the city gave for us at the Crystal Palace? And of course, one can
never forget the wonderful port wines which derive their name from the friendly
port --- our first stop on the Midshipman cruise --- OPorto, Portugal.

Although no one was happy about the collision of the BEATTY at sea, it did
mean an unscheduled visit to two very dissimilar ports --- Vigo, Spain and
Plymouth, England, --- for us . The GEARING served as escort for the BEATTY
and our men worked long hours to repair the damages she had sustained.
Q Our short visits to the two ports were our rewards.

The industry of the peoples of the Lowland
Countries is much in evidence in one of
Northern Europe's most important shipping
ports, Antwerp, Belgium. Here was a city
which had savored the beauty of the art of
Rubens --- but also a city which had heard
the grim marching of many of History's
Antwerp lies far up the Scheldt River, and
if anything characterizes her, it is the many
river craft which ply back and forth loaded
down with the traffic of Northern Europe.
Ask any GEARING sailor to tell you about
the peek into the future that he got at the
"Expo" of 1958. The Brussels World's Fair
was the opportunity of a lifetime to see the
exhibits of what many of the world's leading
nations consider important.
It will be a long time before we are able
to end another cruise in such an atmosphere
of International achievement.
