end, the time Came to depart tor new experiences
and new people.
T . The next port to be assailed by the Navarro was
B11CknerfBay,Qkinawa. We arrived at our destina-
sdd at our departure for Namazu. This was a short
stop, just to oft-load troops.
We then set sail for Sasebo, arriving on 31 March,
liberty was again a selfish thought. Men worked
hard to keep the ship clean and keep their early
liberty. On our last day the dependents of military r
personnel were embarked for their yearly shopping
tour of Hong Kong. Out oi the l20 dependents, 75
were women. The journey was more like a party.
We arrived in l-long Kong on April 6 and debarked

Tailors andlshoemakers did a tremendous business.
Liberty was granted and the men thoroughly en-
joyed it. As usual time ran out. We picked up our
passengers and headed back to Sasebo. Enroute, we
think military history was made. A dance was held
on the crew's mess deck. Everyone had a ball and
the Captain was presented with a "Petticoat Plaque."
The women expressed their gratitude for such a
wonderful cruise. We spent just one night in Sasebo
and then headed for Naha, Okinawa.
After embraking troops the ship pulled into Buck-
ner Bay until the Zlst of April. With only l97 troops
aboard the operation was easily accomplished.
Operation Sea Turtle was accomplished on the
shore of Pohang, Koreap it was-our one and only
complete lA. Going back to Naha was another
story, one full Battalion made the trip. After off-load-
ing, the men enjoyed their first liberty in two weeks.
The next stop was considered the first step home.
Arriving in Apra Harbor, Guim, lVl.l., on May 9th,
the Navarro crew was put to work cleaning up the
ship forfhomeg Here iwas an island full of beaches

home. Cn May .2l, the Navarro set a B-line course
for LongfBeach. Ourfhoping to be the first ones home
out of PHIBRON SEVEN almost came true. Four days
out of Long Beach, we crossed the path of the U.S.S.
CAVALIER and U.S.S. CABILDO. We ioined forma-
tion and proceeded at l2 knots for the remainder
of the voyage. y ,
We entered the breakwater early on the morning
of lune Sth. behind the U.S.S. CAVALIER. Many men
were thinking of the past four months remembering

"Anchor-Clankers", "Rope-Chokers" name them what you
will! By any name a division to be proud of and as aood a qroup
of men as the Navy could assemble for the job. Walk forward of
the mess deck and you'll be almost sure to be in First Division
spaces. The center and pride ofthe lst Division is the Quarterdeck
and its "Brasso" inspired sheen.
l-Iona Kona, Sasebo and Yokosuka in that order seems to be

out of the sea to welcome us home.

remember the days, storm and calm, qood and bad, spent at work
and liberty and what could be better for the memory.

"A" DIVISION CHARACTERISTICS
Now draw near and take heed all ye lowly landlubbers as I
pronounce these twenty-one men worthy and highly qualified
members of the "Olde Canoe Clube". After four months and five
days on the briny deep they have developed the characteristics
of the stouthearted men who have passed them before.
Many of our ranks long only to drop anchor at Long Beach.
Among those home-loving are the faithful brothers-in-law com-
binations and other assorted lonely hearted brown baggers.
There are others, though, who have reason to believe that the
world's only women are still in Iapan.
The call of the Pacific will draw one of our members back to
Guam for a tour R G R at Gab Gab beach. I-Ie yearns only for beer,
sea water and sunshine.
Far below the second deck the cry of "Don't waste my water"
issues forth from one of our gungho Navy men who dreams oddly
of his discharge date.
The call of Iapan is still in the heart of the one who claims that
dim lights, beer, and women make his eyes water. Destiny will
surely let him return. '
And then there is a small but strong group who claim they can
find happiness in the U.S. without having to sail the seas to find it.
These are the humble characteristics of the piston-pushing
celebrities who maintain and repair our early vintage landing
craft engines. y

B-DIVISION STEAMING DEMONS
Down below in the depths of hell, a little beneath where the
demons dwell, there lives an elegiac group l'm here to tell. They
live on nothing but an oily smell. We have Ensign Dill at the head
of the clan, Bones Clark and Pappy Pinnell l-lis Chiefs and second
in Command. Then there's Besse May the man with the first class
crow. His job is our division P.O. Beneath him is a surly group,
about fifteen men who don't give a hoot. As DC. P.O. l can truth-
fully say is wild Bill Bailey from out Texas way, Iewell and Bod-
gers are the oilking gang, but l will not dramatize the oilking's
names. Down through the demons we will go till we find Mouse
Salter the Turn To P.O. Another step down and right in his place,
we find featherhead Bogers with a smile on his face. That ends
the division as far as P.O.'s, but stick around l have ten firemen to
go. At the top of the list l'm sure you'll find Anderson ci Elsis with
a rate on their mind. We have many good men, all ready, and
eager like Ladrow, Acker and that Ironheaded Enger. l have a
few more names before l close my book, like Sullivan, Thompson,
Dennis and Van l-Took. Now everyone has been mentioned with
the exception of Shrum. Someone had to go on Mess Cooking, and
he was the one. There is not a demon here with wealth or fame,
but they are all good BT's, so remember their names.
Climbing a mast to replace a light bulb to a complete rewiring
job is part of the gamut of E Division duties. Quiet workers behind
the electrical scene the "sparks" of E Division can become the
Navarro's most wanted men in a power failure.
To say that E Division is responsible for the upkeep of all
motors, generators and electrical power distribution aboard ship
loses some of its effectiveness in the jargon shuffle.
lt's when the lights come on again after you've been caught
in the dark with half of you on and half of you off, the keys to
your locker somewhere on the deck, that E division burns its
niche near the top of your totem pole.

Our place is in the hole,
Our job to make the engines go.
We furnish the ship its power and light,
To do this we sometimes work half the night.
Generators, pumps and main engines are our care,
We have eighteen men for cleaning and repair.
To wash paint and clean bilges is against our will,
But we do it for Mr. Dill.
He's the top man of this clan,
He'll do anything for you if he can.
Due to Mr. Perdock's know how and skill,
ls the reason main propulsions are on his bill.
Next in line is our hustling E-eight,
We do the work because he has the rate.
He's a short little guy, about five foot five.
He works us until we're more dead than alive.
Then there is Owens our Division P.O.,
He walks around while we're on the go.
On a greyhound he'd rather be,
We know even if they are in tow.
Lathes, grinders and things you know,
Speer is the one who makes them go.
Ptudasill is next a hash mark second class,
He's not too rough, but he takes no sass.
Stewart is a second class too???
He walks around and says turn-to.
At third class there are six of us,
To get us to work they make such a fuss.
Then there is Bell third class CMMJ,
He's well liked by all the men.
Next there is Whitesell "MM3",
Soon he will be out willingly and free.
Ryan is the next one in line,
His discharge is getting closer all the time.
Next there is Clouthier, a hardy young man,
He is trying to get duty in lapan.
Roench is the next one, but he's hard to see,
Since he is ready to add to his family tree.
Next there is Sutter, a hard working guy,
He does his work and never asks why.
Next are the firemen, the hard working lads,
They would much sooner be in their pads.
Don't get me wrong about the non-rated men,
They do the work of over ten.
Besides their daily watches and turn-to,
They have many special duties to do.
Harper is sometimes referred to as "Snake",
A hard working man, says our hustling eight.
Peveto is a sailor from out Texas way,
He wants to go back there some day.
Grant is a M. H. striker who works in the shop,
On grinders and lathes, he doesn't want to stop
A hot rodder we have named "Waldo" Burch,
The way he drives will send you to church.
Down in the bilges, you'll find Iones,
Chipping paint and scrapping his bones.
Stewart C.T. can light off a pump,
But a job he dislikes is cleaning the sump.
Fehlinqer last of the bunch, .
He's on mess cooking, we'll see him at lunch.

YOKOSUKA - Had special charm to Guer-
rero, for he received a letter from Olga 7 and

portunity for financial and physical recu-
SASEBO - Brings back memories to Loftis

ioyedi and Youriko.
HONG KONG - Where Guerrero and
Thomas liked the split-skirts which revealed
such beautiful legs. And Hruza saw so
much he couldn't remember it all. Of course
he kept calm. Naturally Hammons started
his education enjoying the wine, song, and
- Well he didn't Want to leave.
GUAM - Dean and Tones drank, swam,
and drank. Bellew re-newed old acquaint-
ances and even took leave. He really liked
the beautiful beaches!

Bjerke and Hammons. Bjerke was sad for

challenged on very few occasions during the West-

at sea, however we did have a few brief moments of
glory when we had to care for two seriously ill de-
pendents during the l-long Kong trip.
Otherwise, our work consisted of treating common
maladies, performing minor diagnostic procedures,
and implementing the Navy's routine preventive
medicine program. Due to the paucity of disease

clips and staples, wages its daily battle with paper. Part of the
outer flank between BuPers and the contending forces, the ship's

fusion, the team in ship's office, when the smoke clears, always

more sedate than the ship's office, is, nevertheless, a salient pro-

The NAVARRO softball team rolled to a 15 won and 4
lost record for the period 1 luly 1958 to 1 luly 1959. Mem-
bers of the Navarro team with brief resume of their
record are indicated below:
B1LL ELLISON, SN-Pitcher who had a record of ll and
2 and hit for a 370 average. Ellison hit 9 homers in the
19 games and was the big gun of the Navarro attack.
He also is a gifted outfielder when not pitching.
BILL RASMUSSEN, PNl-Manager and first baseman
took the team over after they had suffered 6 straight
losses in the Philippines and molded a winner. Has
managed teams for the past decade and instilled in the
team the winning habit. At lst base he hit for a 380
BOB HARPER - Second baseman and coach Harper
fielded the position flawlessly and hit for 280 as a lead
off man. Harper another holler guy who along, with man-
ager Rasmussen gave the Navarro a spirited infield.
HM WORRELL-Shortstop batted for the lofty average of
475 and was the leading runs batted in man on the team.
Sure handed fielder who made the big plays.
CARL WALKER-3rd baseman and a good one. Walker
hit the ball with consistency for a 417 batting average
and gave the team an airtight infield.
KEN HAMNER-Catcher who was converted from an in-
fielder and did a real fine job behind the plate. Possessor
of a whiplike arm and very fast for a receiver. Hit for a
steady 350 average, with the ability to hit the long ball.
RON ENGER-Pitcher-outfielder who made a fine second
pitcher and hit for a lofty 412 in 9 games. Hit his way
into a starter's role with big bat.
The remainder of the Navarro outfield included lohn
Hammons, Bob Brady, Bob Straub, George Stewart and
lohnny lackson. Stewart was a newcomer who was out-
field coach and a pinchrunner.
For the limited time that the team had to practice it
performed as a real good club. Highlight of the season
was the team beating the SAN IOAQUIN COUNTY after
a loss. The LST had won 22 out of 24 prior to the Navarro
knocking them off ll to 7 in a return contest. The team
also knocked off the TALLADEGA twice in Guam by the
scores 13 to 9 and 7 to 4.
The NAVARRUS boxing team
won an impressive string of victor-
ies during its recent season. Solo-
mon lohnson from Richmond, Vir-
ginia, won the SouthWest Pacific
AAU Light I-leavyweight Champion-
ship, Eleventh Naval District Mid-
dleweight Championship and the
Pacific Coast Championship.
loe Esguibel from Raton, New
Mexico participated in the Par East-
ern All Navy district championship
at Yolcosuka in March. Not con-
fronted by any challengers he was
automatically given the bantam-
David Martinez from Yountville,
California also participated in
the Yolcosulca matches. Martinez
knocked out his first opponent but
was 'defeated in the finals. Losing a

"The Pearl Of The Orient." A place where excitement,
color, beauty, and entertainment were found. The crew of

with shoppinq for clothing and jewelry topping the list of
pastimes. The "Peak Tram" provided excellent scenery
for the sight-seers and photo-fiends, as Well as "Tiger Balm
Gardens," imposina an experience one will never forqet.
Only in Honq Kona could one find so many loarqains and
still have a wonderful time siqhtseeinq and picture taking.
