This year's cruise book is a little different
from those of other cruises. Perhaps the
biggest difference is the ship itself - USS
NICHOLAS QDD449J. The ship reall hasn't
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
Happy Anniversary, NICHOLAS!

Cdr. W. B. 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

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.

One of the memorable sights of our
cruise was the size and majesty of
Ah: Soy, Japan,s famed Mount Fuji.
Just about every division aboard NICHOLAS
has its chief petty officer. 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

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

On the ol' Nick with her div's aplenty,
Stands one of its own called Anti-Sub,
With torpedomen and sonarmen always
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
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
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 ,
with a pledge to win by doing its best.

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

point. During this cruise, NICHOLAS spent
a week on the gun line nearfDanang in
Vietnam, sometimes firing as much as two
hundred rounds a night. That the firing was
accomplished without incident or casualty
is 'ak -tribute to the competence of the men
of Second Division.

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.

There are three rates in OI Division:
The electronics technicians, the corpsmen,
and the radarmen. 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

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

they're asked to shipover, they will laugh in

some one will go off mumbling, "He'd

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-
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. No one complains of Wasting
away in idleness.

NICHOLAS crossed the equator at longitude
140000' East and latitude 00000', on the Way

' 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

It is true that everyone seemed
to have "some" talent to demon-

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
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.

It isn't too often that entertainers bring
