Perhaps the biggest difference is the ship itself - USS NICHOLAS QDD449J. The ship reall hasn't Y changed very much from outward appearances, except that it is a year older. But when that year marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of NICHOLAS, it does make a difference - at least, to us. A quarter of a century is a long time for a ship, especially if that ship is still serving a full deployment schedule as did NICHOLAS this year. She Went thousands of miles, visiting Yokosuka, Subic Bay, Gulf of Tonkin, Danang, Hong Kong, Kaohsiung, Sasebo, and Brisbane. That's a big order for the "old lady" of the fleet, but she never complained. In fact,'she was on the gun line in Vietnam along with some of those fancy new ships. Instead of a dark blue cover, as is traditional with cruise books, We decided to celebrate a little. Twenty-five years ,seemed like a good excuse to have a golden anniversary. It might seem strange to dedicate this book to a ship, but that is what we would like to do. This book is dedicated to NICHOLAS, for twenty-five years of service to the fleet and to the thousands of men that she has served so Well. Happy Anniversary, NICHOLAS! .

Hooffstetter There is little doubt that if a popularity con- test were held aboard NICHOLAS that Captain Hooffstetter would come out on top. He is probably one of the most popular com- manding officers that the crew has known, and he owes much of his success to the unity and high morale that he has instilled among the crew. He specializes in getting things done. That is why NICHOLAS was able to make a WesPac deployment only a few weeks after a four month yard period and accomplish its mission with the seventh fleet with little difficulty. He is a strict administrator, an able shiphandler, and an extremely per- sonable man. Commander Hoffstetter was graduated from the University of Louisville and commissioned in 1946. Tours of duty have included the USS FRANK KNOX QDDR 74233 Aide for Admirals Gerald and Long, COMCRUDESFLOT lg BUPERSg U. S. Naval War College, Command and Staff Course in 1957-585 Executive Officer, USS HAZELWOOD QDD 531Jg Commanding Officer, USS RIVAL QMSO 4685. He received a Master of Arts De- gree in International Affairs from George Washington University, after completion of the Naval Warfare course in 1962-63. Com- mander Hoffstetter served on CINPAC Staff until taking command of the USS NICHOLAS QDD4-49J on September 1965 and was selected for the rank of Captain by the 1966 Captain Selection Board. LCDR.

LTjg K. o. MOHR MPA Japan NICHOLAS made two stops in Japan - Yokosuka, at the beginning of the Cruise and Sasebo, near the end. Japan offered excellent sightseeing. Many took tours of Tokyo to see the Olympic games sight and Tokyo Tower. From Sasebo, a ship's tour Went to Nagasaki to see the A-bomb museum and ground zero. Japan was one of the cleanest and most beautiful countries visited and probably had the best bargains for photo- graphic and sound equipment. 5' mf?

The "Chief," ag he is often called, is the specialist - a Spe- cialist, not only in his technical field but also in leadership and in getting things done. He can often remember the "good ol' days" when the Navy was somehow a diff- erent Navy. Without these career people, it is sure that the Navy could not go very far. c if Q s Www 4?

First Division lf any division joins hands with traditions of the past, it is First Division. On the old sailing vessels, a ship probably had only one division, and that was the deck force. It did the navigating, the cooking, and everything else. Ships have got more complicated but the deck force has yet to be replaced by new electronic gear. You can still see a seaman of only a few months scrubbing the deck and heaving the monkey's fist to the dock when the ship pulls in to port. A seaman is a rare breed. As a member of First Division for his first six months in the Navy, he becomes a specialist is such time honored tasks as chipping paint Qsometimes, it seems, before the old coat is dryj, scrubbing decks, handling lines, steering the ship, and many other jobs. A seaman can tie more different kinds of knots than any other person - don't ever try to tie a "granny" knot around a member of the deck force. First Division 'W ---'F " -M" has a big job. It-is responsible for handling the lines during refueling at sea. It keeps up and runs the Captain's gig and the motor whale boat. It also handles the lines for docking and undocking. First Division keeps up the outside appearance of the ship. A bos 'n mate will tell you he is the "real" Navy gland in terms of tradition, he is probably right. f 1 FRONT ROW QL to RD: J. B.

AS Division On the ol' Nick with her div's aplenty, Stands one of its own called Anti-Sub, With torpedomen and sonarmen always ready, At sea, the enemy -- on shore, the Pub. Out of many recollections while underway, We once tracked a pinnacle for a nite and a day, Thinking for sure a sub we had found, Readying torpedoes to fire a round. With hedgehogs in lines and the rocket to go We pinpointed the target and planned an attackg ' Then faster we went, 30 knots or so, And hoped the "enemy" would not fire back. Alas, it was clear what the target be, And we all joined a chorus of "It might have been , More than just topography." Thus, to avoid it would be a sin. How can it be such skill is acquired To combat the threat of an alien force With nothing more than the oldest destroyer? Our secret must surely be "tour de force." All is kept well and vigilance maintainedg That is the job of the men in AIS. It's an unbeatable team which remains , always trained with a pledge to win by doing its best.

Second Division This is Second Division, but it is by no means second in any respect. The Division is com- prised of two rates, Gunners' Mates and Fire Control Technicians. They work to- gether to keep the guns and Gun Fire Con- trol Systems in good repair, and able to deliver accurate fire against Aircraft, surface ships, and shore targets. The Gunners' Mates keep the firing end of the system in repair. They maintain the two 5" X 38 Gun Mounts, as well as the mechanical components of the variable depth sonar KVDSJ-, and the MK-108 Anti-Submarine Rocket. They are also responsible for the storage, care, and distribution of the ships "small arms". QRifles, Pistols, etc J. The Fire control teclmicians are responsible for the maintenance and operation- of the gun director, fire control radar, and the MK-1A computer. These components track the tar- get to be fired upon, compute the point where the guns must be aimed to hit the target, and electrically positions the guns at this X 1-"2 -1 Ni.,--"' - ' MY' J Nl ff!! on L .m g X xx-.jjfzjam .

I was flying my DASH, Cruising on a Saturday night. BLOB! BLOB! We were hunting for a sub, Thinking everything was all right. Then, SPLISH! SPLASH! What happened to my DASH. DASH means drone anti-sub helicopter. It is a remote controlled, torpedo-carrying weapons system used in conjunction with radar and sonar to seek out and destroy enemy subs. During the cruise, DASH Division flew more than twenty-five hours in twenty flights, of those, nine hours were in Vietnam. Unfortunately, two of our DASH were lost during flight. The gang of DASH Division -- Burns, Krisman, Wollney, Mayor Russell, and Reed --are perhaps the most versatile men aboard, Besides being ex- perts in their field, they also serve as MDC coordinators, gun director personnel, and New Guinea wild dog custodians.

The part the electronics technician plays aboard ship is a many- fold one.. He maintains, repairs and calibrates all the electronic devices pertaining to the eyes and ears of the ship. The eyes being it's radar and associated equipment, which enables us to operate and see what surrounds us 65 .Q 1 OO " U45 T Rakim CHIEF, ur Qouto BE me nec sa NO.l ore. mms, 9 regardless of visability and weather conditions.

To accomplish this an ET undergoes an extensive training school where the fundamentals of electronic , theory and its application is taught. But this is only the beginning. Many more months foften during liberty hoursy is spent learning and maintaining the vast interlaced network Of equipment We have. The electronic technician is an integral part of the complex SLOXMN.. . . organization of the ship working 'together for the common purpose of keeping this ship a READY, ALERT, FIGHTING VESSEL. The function of the corpsman on the NICHOLAS is two fold. That isg one, the health of the crew as a day by day affair, two, preserving, during battle, the lives of the men of the NICHOLAS to the best of his ability.

B Division Down deep in the heart of this mighty man 'of war is a group of snipe's referred to as the "Black Gang". These are the men of "B" Division. Their job is to tend the boilers that provide steam to the main engines and all other auxiliary machinery. They are also responsible for the maintenance of the boilers and it's associated equipment. Besides just making steam they are noted for getting up at all hours of the night to take on oil. They are also noted for making smoke ftwo kindsj Black and White. While at sea they are specialist in their rate. While in port for repairs they are specialist in Early Liberty, Special Liberty or just plain Liberty. They are a friendly group of guys that get along with everyone except Airdales, Deck-Apes, and J arheads. When they're asked to shipover, they will laugh in your face, but call them a no good snipe and some one will go off mumbling, "He'd rather fight then sWitch."

R Division R Division is divided according to type of work into four gangs: Shipfitter, Electrical, Auxiliary Machinery, and Interior Commu- nications. Functionally they are independent of one another, but have in common the fact that their work takes them to all parts of the ship. The Shipfitter gang is re- sponsible for the hull and hull fittings, damage control functions, certain piping systems outside the main machinery spaces and for miscellaneous jobs which require welding, cutting, or sheet metal work. "E" gang and its electricians are responsible for the ship's electrical plant and wiring systems for power and lighting. "A" gang maintains and repairs auxiliary machinery such as air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, the emergency diesel and en- L gines for portable pumps and both boats, the J P-5 system and the laundry. The IC men have charge of the gyroscope and gyro re- peaters, the IMC, 17MC, and 21MC systemS. the sound powered phone network, and movies and projectors.

For over a month We were here, spending five days at sea in the unpredictable Taiwan Straits and five days of predictable "outstanding" night life in Kao Hsiung. Kao Hsiung is rapidly becoming the busiest seaport and biggest city of Taiwan . A sunken 'ship at the mouth of Kao Hsiung Harbor is a stark reminder of the often- violent seas in the Straits. The Water buffalo is a familiar sight here. It does much of the heavy work in this agricultural country. The petticab is an inexpensive Way to travel around Kao Hsiung. lt is seen here, passing in front of the ' Mormon Church recently constructed in Kao Hsiung. A Taiwan 3.34165 The ship's crew proved popular ambassadors as they visited the attractions near Kao Hsiung. 1. .1 X This suspension bridge gave quite a thrill to these sailors. They are on their way to visit St. Joseph's Hospital in the mountains.

Prof. Fu Ling Yu presented his magic act. ' Talent Show On the evening before crossing the equator, Davey Jones came aboard to warn all the polly- wogs of the arrival of King Neptune the following morning. ln an effort to gain mercy and please Davey, the pollywogs put on a talent show. Enter- tainment, organized by Mr. Branshaw, was a oredit to the high caliber of pollywog on this year's cruise. Everyone seemed to have some talent to offer, and Mr. Jones went away quite impressed. The rights of all Pollywogs were affirmed by this rebel quartet. 1 tf, I'.1 n u 'I 1 Royal Beauty Pageant It is true that everyone seemed to have "some" talent to demon- strate before Davey Jones at the show. Often the only talent that a pollywog possessed was being "beautiful." The Royal Beauty Pageant was perhaps the most interesting part of the program. Actually, this group of lovelies I 4 did not stow away when We left Subic Bay for Brisbane. They are all members of the ship's crew and Were duly introduced to the mysteries of the deep on the following morning - even Mr. Erickson, who was chosen fairest of the fair and reigned as Neptune's Queen.
