Our trip across the Pacific was punctuated with a brief but pleasant stop at Pearl Harbor and a fuel stop at Midway Island. MORTON men enioyed seeing these two historic spots of World War ll, and relaxing in the sun and surf at Waikiki,Beach in Honolulu. . The next stop was the island of Guam where MORTON underwent a week of repairs and upkeep. lt was also an oppor- tunity for lots of athletics, swimming, and fishing after the long iourney across the Pacific. From Guam we headed for the Island of.Tauwan. About halfway there, we were diverted through the Philippine lsland chain and on to the Gulf of Siam. The situation in Laos appeared critical at that moment. With characteristic readiness for trouble anywhere, anytime, the SEVENTH Fleet was moving into position iust in case it were needed. Fortunately, and perhaps because the SEVENTH Fleet was ready, the crisis passed and MORTON was again sent toward Taiwan. For a month MORTON operated on the famous Formosa Patrol between Communist China and Free China. ln between patrol duties we visited the Taiwanese ports of Kaohsiung and Keelung and while doing so showed the capabilities Nof SEVENTH Fleet to wage peace as well as being ready for war. ' Through "Operation Handclasp" MORTON had carried hundreds of cartons of food, medicines and clothing from the United States for donation to those who are less fortunate. Much of this material was given to the Christian Missionaries in southern Taiwan and to the Red Cross Society in the country's capital of Taipei. ln addition, through other activities such as baseball games, receptions and dinners, MORTON cultivated a bond of friendship with our Free Chinese allies. From Taiwan we headed north to Japan visiting both of the ports of Yokosuka and Sasebo. ln between ports we operated at sea with one of the Navy's powerful fast carrier striking groups. MORTON acted in the destroyer's traditional role as anti- Submarine and anti-aircraft support for the attack carrier. During one period at sea we participated in an anti-submarine training exercise with units of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force. The highlight of the visit to Japan was a special two-day stay in Yokohama which is the Sister City of MORTON'S home visit was to present the Mayor of Yokohama with a picture which the City of San Diego port of San Diego. The purpose of this had entrusted to MORTON to deliver as a token of its friendship for Yokohama. ln addition, we opened our decks to general Vlslilng Gnd many citizens of Yokohama came aboard to see this bit of America far from home. Saving the most exotic for the last, we iourneyed to fabulous Hong Kong iust before leaving the Western Pacific and the SEVENTH Fleet for our trip eastward and home. , SKIPPER A native of Pennsylvania, Commander 1Nilliam'C. YOUNG was educated in the public schools and raised in the city of Allentown, He mended Muhlenberg College, Allentown, and the University of Alabama of Tuscoloosa. He entered the Navy in 1940 as a seaman apprentice and was commissioned as an Ensign in 1942. His first tour of duty upon being commissioned was as an in. gfrucfor in gunnery. This was followed by a sea tour which from 1943 until 1947 he saw service with the amphibious forces on board the USS GRIGGS lAPA 1101, USS BRONX lAPA 2361 and with the Staff, COMTRANSDIV THIRTEEN on board the USS CHILTON lAPA 381. In 1947, he left the amphibious forces to join the destroyer fleet in the USS JOHN A. BOLE lDD 7551. He served on board for two f years rotating in the normal sequence through each department, concluding with holding down the billet of Operations Officer.

Naval Academy in July 1931 by Senator Henry J. Allen, of Kansas. After grad- uation in 1935, he was commissioned Ensign, U. S. Navy, under probation for two years, as was the custom. He did his probationary service in USS .,,. TEXAS lBB 351. He went ashore in November 1945, and was thereafter rotated in the normal sequence. pw' '1 . ? All' b,-5, Summarizing his service at sea, he served two years in battleships, we . three years in cruisers, twelve years in destroyers and one year in mine- craft. War experience was gained from beginning to end, embracing both major theaters of the war. Most notable were Pearl Harbor and the Sur- render Ceremony in Tokyo Bay. The Battles of Cape Esperance, Koman- dorski, Normandy and Okinawa came in between. I Duty ashore comprised chiefly of staff duty. Joint Staff experience included JCS ltwicel, the first being in 1947, which probably qualified him as a "charter member", combined staff duty included the UN and NATO, Navy staff duty included OPNAV, BUPERS, and DESLANT, and he served a short tour of interdepartmental staff duty with the State Department. f'v gl! I l?t4!lll1-llH'l 1 Captain O'Connell attended the usual fleet schools in gunnery, engineering, operations, ASW and.mine.warfare. Ashore, he attended the Naval War College, the Armed Forces Staff College, and a .special comptrolIer's familianzation course at the Navy Graduate School of Comptrollership, at George Washington University. , ' 'll'-rat .

As we departed for WESTPAC in April MORTON took on a secondary mission, this one of peace. During our deployment last year we were very much impressed by the plight of many of the people in the Far East. We witnessed many startling cases of desti- tution that made us realize how fortunate we are. This year we were readyitoiihelp qsmuch as we goqid. Moierorsi is participating wholeheartedly in "Operation l-landclasp."i Before leaving, the ,fljifiited States every nook and cranny that was not filled with weapons of war was stowed with clothes, food and medicine donated hy private citizens, ireligiousfand welfare groups, and generous manufacturers. These materials havegfound their way through mis? sionaries, welfare groups and otrphanages ,to ,UCQQY people in the free nations of the Far East. The,meD of MORTON alone contributed 800 pounds of cgncen- ' T cause T E trated food supplementsto sec riff' 'ss Jr Much of the "Operation Handclasp" material was delivered personally by MORTON sailors to its desti- nation. ln Kaohsiung we delivered medicine to the Christian Clinic in Ping Tung and our food supplement was taken to the Christian Children's Sanatorium also an Ping Tungf when MoRToN visited Keelung, Taiwan, it tookllthree large trucks to carry medicine to the Chinese' Red Cross in Taipei. For those sailors who accompanied these deliveries it was a happy sight indeed to see the appreciative expressions on the faceswof those we are trying to help. ln Yokosufka more food and clothing was taken from MORTON'S hold and transferred to other Navy Ships whofwould take them on to Korea to be used in caring for the needy. We hope that what little we have done may have brought comfort to a few and that someday our only mission will be that of peace. Next year when we againrreturn to the Far East our holds will be iust as full of "Operation Handclasp" material as we continue to try to bring the East and West closer together. xg' fs -1 Sf' A -NA ,ss 1,-"""x 55.1 ' ,ywviu :?""' if if :QA ,1 Saw-.N fi L 3 1 ' V , me 5 76: , .Q 1? fs V I 3, 6 n X its A 1 ' ,Z MMC C s ,f ,,,....,..... -., OFFICERS ., V ...

S ,,- f .-v First Division's primary iob is to perform the maintenance and deck operations of the ship. Although these iobs are not technically complex they are of vital importance to the ship. The hull of the ship is the cornerstone, and it must be kept clean and excellently preserved. This means that the deck force must constantly attack their enemies, rust and corrosion. Many times operational schedules and maneuvers make it difficult for the deck force to keep ahead of their enemies: this requires many long hard hours of toil. But this effort is expended with enthusiasm and pride, so that the ship is always ready to meet any situation. The Boatswain's Mates and their seamen do a good iob in keeping the ship squared away, ship shape, and looking good. Deck force preparations not only keep up the combat readiness of the ship, but also are a source of ship spirit and pride when we receive on board such visitors as COMDESFLOT ONE, COMSEVENTH FLEET, Miss Yokohama, and many others in the various ports MORTON visits. .

An archipelago that stretches fourteen hundred miles over the mightiest of oceans, Hawaii, as though gymbolic of its creation, has erupted from a cult of bongq beating Balinese some two hundred years egg to become America's fiftieth state and the moonlit sun-soaked, star-studded, masterpiece memory maker for thousands of urban adventurers yearly. From the shroud of crushing defeat after the paralyzing attack on Pearl Harbor, she has risen out of her own ashes to become once more u mainspring in Pacific Defense. Progress is a by. word. Business booms, commerce flourishes, Ha- waii is rich. The tourist industry is a multi-million dollar enterprise. Yearly, Waikiki Beach, mecca of honeymooners, evolves more grandiose than ever before. Towering hotels of ever-increasing numbers rise to face the white and mile-long breakers of the famous resort. ln all respects, Hawaii is little America but with that all-fortunate addition of being a con- venient south sea paradise. . . -.l -Q-, , vi: .g X. ,f s 'A '.

There ap- peared the mark of a tiny shoreline in this myriad of shimmering light and it arose out of the heat, the light, and the endless green glare and poised itself as an island. The birth of Guam, a tropical oven. The heat though does not wqylay its advantages. Guam commands the mid-Pacific, she is the defensive keypost of the South Sea, the potent guardian of a south- ern gate. The two airfields on the island and the naval base in the south help to deter the ever-present threat of war in this theatre. Even today though, a little paradise remains, the water is still as green andiincandescent and the sun as glaringly bright as in the first. The green shores have given ground to progress but it takes only a little imagination to realize once the presence of a micronesia -a free Eden of the past. mg, ,J , I , ff - W .af if ' fi A I M-T - We " .f J A ,,,, I. . t...,...- K ,.

MAIL CALL-One thought that was always most pre- dominant in everyone's mind from the Captain to the garbage grinder was-"When do we get the next mail?" Those letters from home, most ably delivered by the ship's mailman, SMITH, RDSN, took top priority over any off- duty activity-including eating. Q tl ' ,QQQQ , sf I 29- 'QQ The deck force is weighed with the responsi- bility of maintaining, rigging, manning, and supervising the replenishment station that en- ables ships of today's naval force to extend the scope and endurance of their operations, in exercise or in combat. The men in the FIRST Division in MORTON take pride in knowing from various messages received, that our ability to provide and receive transfer rigs is of the finest quality encountered in the Pacific Fleet. Evolutions ranged from the almost routine highline personnel transfer to the ticklish am- munition replenishment. Fuel replenishments went swiftly and smoothly and only once dur- ing stores transfer were five cases of Coca- Cola lost. Safety is paramount on boaTd, and every man is instructed in precautions in case of emergency break-away lthe instantaneous severing of connection between the sending and receiving shipl and the everpresent changes inherent inithe nature of transfer at sea. FIRST Division is ever ready to keep the ship supplied through underway replenishment and thus maintain the strength of this link in the chain that is the U. S. Navy. f li' - ls" J 1- ov, , 1-1 D .f 's 'wi I - . . .zz ' . 1 r X -- 2 1 we . if'tc,T?1fIQff'12Q Q ' - . 9 5 .ggi 2 3 -4 .. f r N A K I I .. ,, 'X H13 ' . Y...

N Y 1 ,Cqall I I3 Nt- l The MORTON, boasting polished, versatile athletic teams, readily responded to challenges on several occasions both in Taiwan and Japan. The first, a basketball con- test against a local school, was a "battle to the finish" type affair with action and anxiety throughout the game. MORTON was defeated in the crucial final seconds by a score 38-37. The following day, the baseball team filed onto the-field to find, much to their dismay, a small, flexible rubber ball being used. The MORTON men soon discovered it was a fiasco after several fruitless attempts to out-iump the ball. After seven innings of near hitless playing the score was 7-3 against MORTON. The second encounter was played in Tokyo on a field designed for the baseball player. The opposition has been defeated but three times in over 100 games. Despite the fact that they were clearly outclassed, MORTON showed great team spirit and determination and missed victory by a scant one run. Exercising good sportsmanship in each of these endeavors, we held true to the motto, "it matters not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game."

Taiwan, by virtue of its position, commands a large portion of the China coast and the trade routes of the China Sea. lt remains a stronghold against Communist China's threat of complete subversion in southeast Asia. lt is a major forefront in the Asian cold war, an outpost of freedom, the seat of the Chinese Nationalist Republic and Chiang Kai Shek's defensive citadel, an army some four hundred thousand strong. -Q... 4 i Q 1 ,gk L., 'SAY' QI fd if U, 4- mg.

Razorback ln early July MORTON dunked 5 khaki-clad U. S. Army Colonels in the salty blue. The Colonels were officers of the Staff of Com- mander, U. S. Forces Japan and Commander U. S. Army Forces Japan who were on an indoctrination tour of forces of the U. S. SEVENTH Fleet. They arrived on MORTON by highline at sea after having been flown from Tokyo to the carrier MIDWAY. The MORTON in turn sent the officers to the SEVENTH Fleet submarine U. S. S. RAZORBACK. The seas were too rough for a normal boat transfer, so the Colonels were embarked in a l5-man rubber raft along with a crew of MORTON'S "paddlers." These MORTON men, under the direction of LTJG MOORE, strug- gled with their canoe paddles against wind and waves to transport the Army officers the short hundred yards to the RAZORBACK. Despite every effort of the wind, they made it safely and brought the rubber raft alongside the RAZORBACK. At that moment, a huge wave crested against the hull of the submarine and washed back into the liferaft. The Colonels found themselves sitting on the bottom of a rubber swimming pool with about 2 feet of water in it! A bit damp, the Colonels boarded RAZORBACK and watched her operations under the sea while MORTON conducted simulated attacks upon her. Upon completion of this, in deference to the Colonel's com- was made by highline This fort, the return trip from the RAZORBACK was no easy feat for the submarine with her confined deck space and the heavy seas.

The hills and harbors of this first impression are the prime intro- duction into an eastern civilization reared from before the birth of Christ even before the golden era of Rome on a social and political system completely independent of western culture. When America was only a glint in Columbus' eye, a thousand emperors had waged their gallant wars, countless families had been born, lived and died to temper this civilization, to bear its fruit and to carry it across the tragedy of world war to the van- guard of international commerce. From under the rubble of Hiroshima arose the decision of dedicated and res- olute men to carry the torch of free democracy in the East. Japan has united and rebuilt and now stands heel to toe with free Asia in their efforts to combat the thrusts of world communism. Today in Japan, East meets West. Tokyo has become porterhouse steak with soy sauce. In evidence through- out the islands is the mark of the new era. Tea and coca-cola run side by side.

Sixteen hardy mountain climbing MORTON sailors set out to climb the famous Japanese Mount Fuii, and made it. lt is said that the most beautiful time on top is sunrise, so our group was more than happy to climb at night. The night climbing lasted until eleven-thirty, at which time a delightful dinner of whale meat, bamboo shoots and saki was served. At two the next morning, after sleeping on a bamboo rug, the climb was resumed. Sunrise came, tea was served and with it the beauty of Japan was unfolded at the feet of our climbers. The trip down can better be described as sliding, rather than walking, and at the bottom swimming and boating awaited. On the trip one man was heard to say, "Anyone who has the opportunity to climb the Mount and doesn't is a fool, and anyone who does it twice isga bigger fool." sfgD'22?6b if fix I J M- rr g l vc 'T'- g 2 XMVZN WWE Sxuvxr VUWN F: , , J ., : ,xl , V ,,, .

Each and every rate-whether it is Electrical, l.C., Shipfitter, Engineman, "' IZ, .il Damage Controlman, or Machinery Re- pairman-is vital to the overall performance and functioning of the ship. For example their f responsibilities cover such things as the ship's Q 6 V. ,. electrical power and lighting, all communica- L if tions, air conditioning, refrigeration, heating and ventilating system, as well as water-tight integrity. .7 ln addition to general repair jobs, "R" Division is y also one of the most busy during general quarters drills, since the Damage Control Repair Parties are basically founded with "A" Division personnel.

Truly the mos' colorful city in the world, she is claimed the "Pearl of the Orient." This is a grave understatement, for there has never been a gem discovered which could duly represent the city's amazingly mysterious per. sonality. Precariously situated within miles of Chinds "Bamboo Curtain," HONG KONG flourishes undef the ever present shadow of instantaneous invasion and, undaunted, carries her name, her trade, her international flavor throughout the free world, Lodged on the thirty square miles of island are three and a half million people. The massed districts of the great city, teeming, over-populated, throb with a civilization en masse. Shanties and shacks are erected in every available space giving what little shelter cardboard and corrugated aluminum can to the millions of homeless refugees crowded into the confines of only a score of city blocks. Though these slums tint the entire city by their impoverished squallor, the spirit and free enterprise of this special breed of people give the city its true uniqueness, even under these conditions, unsurpassingly difficult by any standards, free thought and a common bond show through the baser instincts prevalent in all manner of men and bring to light practical visible proof of man's finer virtues. Nearly all of these people have escaped the yoke of communist policy, most of them with little more than what they wore to arrive in HONG KONG, faced with the task of supporting themselves and their families. As a result, Wanchi, Western Market and the other sections are engaged daily in an intriguing struggle for survival indirectly involving the whole city itself. On the other hand HONG KONG is not at all just the asylum of refugees. The smart and elegant hotels and shops of KOWLOON and central HONG KONG display the modern elegance of the west and uphold the highest standards of living required of any international attraction. The natural beauty of the city and the outlying countryside, the steep hills surrounding the harbor, form another face of this city's many, many varied sides. There is also the draw of world wide business. Noted as a center for precious gems and pricel6SS work of art and as a focal point in Asian trade, the city has developed into the richest port in the Far East. To sum it up, by comparison with any other Qfeffl city, with any other Eastern culture, HONG KONG I5 still alone, her color, drama, and beauty unm0lCl1ed anywhere the world over.
