U15 Peace years - 192 9-1941 On December ll, 1029, the Salt Lake City went into com- mission at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and became the pride of the fleet. Her commissioning was a national event. She was the first major naval vessel to be commissioned in two years. She was a symptom that the nation was rousing from an optimistic dream world in which serious people believed that peace would last forever. Other nations had started intensive cruiser building programs, and the Salt Lake City was the first example of our answer that was to play an important part in the greatest war of history. The Salt Lake City was built by the New York Shipbuilding Co. at Camden, N. I. She was ordered luly 0, l920, and her keel was laid Iune 9, l927. The launching took place on lanuary 23, l929, iwith Miss Helen Budge of Salt Lake City, Utah, acting as sponsor and Miss Gaylie Rich as maid of honor. A sister ship, the Pensacola, had been ordered sixteen months before the Salt Lake City, but she was built at the New York Navy Yard and was not commissioned until two months after the Salt Lake city. A Commissioning ceremonies were simple. The flag was run up. Admiral lulian T. Latimer, U.S.N., read the commissioning order. The Star Spangled Banner was played by the ship's band. Capt. Fredrick L. Oliver, U.S.N., took command and ad- dressed the crew. Mr. A. L. Mackenzie, representing Salt Lake City, Utah, presented a silver service, the city's gift to the ship, and the .cruiser became a part of the United States Navy. The ship was built under the limitations of the Washington Arms Conference, which sought to end war by limiting the size of weapons. Her 10,000 tons nudged the treaty maximum. Her .eight inch guns were the largest allowed. Although later cruisers so outstripped the Salt Lake City in protection that she and the Pensacola were referred to as "tin clads", her light armor and compartmentation were hailed then as outstanding. 6 i is
