To those who participated. . .
Preparation of the ccCruise Bookn was a job made
possible only by the participation of many members of
the crew. It is impossible to list accurately all the names
of those that contributed, either by donating some of
their off-duty time to the many details of compiling
material for the book, by staging the scenes that depict
life aboard our ship, or by submitting photographs for
use in the book. To all of those that contributed, we
extend our sincerest appreciation for making possible
this record of our 1952 Mediterranean Cruise.

The U. S. S. Steinaker is one of the DD 692 Sumner Class, long-hull destroyers developed late in
the last war for the purpose of accompanying fast Naval Task Forces on extensive operations on the high
seas. She was built by the Bethlehem Steel Company of Staten Island, New York, and was commissioned on
. . . . d . h
26 May 1945. From that tnnc until the close of hostilities she served in the Atlantic Area, an since t en
has been a part of the U. S. Atlantic Fleet.
Tl 'X shii is named in honor of Private First Class Donald Baur Steinaker, United States Marine
Corps Beserve, who was killed at the age of 20 during the early and crucial period of fierce fighting for the
' ' ' ' b f th First Raider
conquest of the Japanese-held island of Guadalcanal in the Soutlm est Pacific. As a mem er o e
Battalion, Steinaker participated in a violent hand to hand battle against overwhelming Japanese forces early
in the morning of 8 October 1942. In the dark jungle twelve marines were killed and twenty two wounded, but
d d ' h li her Fiftv nine Japanese died in the desperate attack. Private Steinaker

refused to be dislodged from his position and died heroically at his post. For this action he was posthumously
' ' ' ' ' G d 1 l S l mon
awarded the Navy Cross. He now lies buried in the United States Naval Cemetery at ua a cana , o o
I l d . This destro er was named after Donald Baur Steinaker to perpetuate the ideals for which we fought.

aboard the Steinaker for the first time on May 25th, at the Brooklyn Navy ar an y
mission pennant was hoisted. Among the visitors was Miss Steinaker, sister of Private Steinaker.
Af her commissioning in May 1945 the Steinaker made her shakedown cruise to Guantanamo
Bay, Cuba, and then returned to Norfolk, Virginia in September for a period of intensive training. December
1945, she went to Newport, Rhode Island, and participated for the first time in tactical exercises. This was

marine warfare training at Key Wfest, Florida during October 1946.
Fleet exercises were next on the schedule in the Caribbean early in 1947. After returning from the
Guantanamo Bay operating area via Bermuda, the Steinaker was readied for her first European cruise in
November 1947, where she was to be attached to the Mediterranean Fleet. Her first port of call was Gibraltar
on 23 November 1947, to be followed in succession by the Grecian ports of Patras, Corinth, Rhodes Island,
and Piraeus. Italy was next on the schedule with visits to Naples and Leghorn and thence to Augusta, Sicily.
The itinerary led to one more stop in Italy at the city of Taranto and then back to Gibraltar.
The Steinaker left Gibraltar on the morning of 6 February 1948, enroute to Bremerhaven, Germany
E l d After com letion of the tour of duty in the North Sea, she returned to the States,
via Plymouth, ng an . p

he Balkans and the Middle East. - , ,
t The operation of the United States Navy during World War II m the Atlantic and Mediterranean
theatres culminated in the victory of the Allied nations of Europe. '
In March of 1945 the U.S. Eighth Fleet fMediterraneanj which had been under the command of
Admiral H. Kent Hewitt since March 1943, was dissolved. In April the naval forces and bases in the Mediter-
ranean Theatre were placed under the administrative control of Commander, U.S. Naval Forces in Europe.
These Forces, commanded by Vice Admiral W. A. Glassford as Commander U.S. Naval Forces, Northwest
African Waters, thereby became a task force of the Twelfth Fleet. . I .
Although the over-all strength was reduced, small naval detachments were maintained in Italy to
support the U.S. Army there, to assist United States merchant shipping, and to continue representation on
the Allied Commission for Italy.
The summer months of 1945 saw United States naval activities in the Mediterranean reduced, and
liberated ports were rapidly returned to the national authorities. Ships of the Mediterranean Fleet were redeployed
and ordered to the Pacific Theatre.
The end of World War Il found the United States Navy continuing to maintain ships in the strategic
Mediterranean. On 30 September 1946, Secretary of the Navy, James Forrestal said:
4cToday the United States Navy is continuing to maintain forces in the Eastern Atlantic and the
Mediterranean Sea for the following purposes : First, to support Allied occupation forces and the Allied Military
Government in the discharge of their responsibilities in the occupied area of Europe. Second, to protect U.S.
interests and to support U.S. policies in the area.
There are many benefits to be attained by maintaining ships of the United States in these waters.
Fi t: It if ' ' ' ' ' '

with the customs and the traditions
of morale for the many oflicers and
the world". Third: It affords an op-
understanding with the people with
rs o ers a splendid opportunity to tram the officers and men of our
to familiarize them not only with the waters in which they cruise but also
of the people of the countries which they visit. Second: It is a builder

, The Operations Department of the U. S. S.
Steinaker and all Navy ships has a greater variety of
duties than any other department. These duties include
ofhce administration, electronic repairs, navigation,
radio and visual signalling, and search for aircraft
or submarines by radar and sonar equipment. ln
addition we even furnish our quota of mess cooks
and have qualified some expert spud pealers. Let us
briefly review each agangn of the department, their
jobs, and every day routines.
The aQuartermastern rating dates back to the
days of the earliest navies. It has a wide assortment
of duties, virtually all of which are of a sea going
nature. When the ship comes into port or goes along-
side a fleet oiler for fuel a QM is always at the wheel.
He is the best steersman on board. Our navigatoris
assistant is a rated Quartermaster who is well versed
in all phases of navigation, both piloting and celestial.
Do you know who sets all the ship's clocks and winds
them each day ? That's right, it's the Quartermaster
again. ccSpottingn flag hoists, sending and receiving
messages by semaphore and flashing light are another
of his routine jobs. The ship's log is kept by the Quarter-
masters. Many great moments in history have come
down through the ages because some long forggttm
QM 'recorded the event in the ship's log.
Something wrong with a radio, surface radar,
iire control radar, ccSonar stackn or fathoineter?
Call the ET's. Yes, this branch of technicians are
the most important rate in the Navy. On a large ship
such as a carrier, cruiser or a battlewagon, an elec.
tronic's technician is usually assigned one particular
piece of gear and it is his responsibility to keep that
gear at peak operating condition. On the STEINAKER
the ET must be a ccjack of all tradesn and able to
make repairs on many different pieces of electronic
equipment. To aid in making repairs the ET has as
fine a collection of test equipment as any good civilian
radio repair shop. Some of the more advanced fields
in which the ET's are playing an important role
include guided missiles, advanced underseas weapons
and the ground controlled approach systems used to
bring both military and commercial aircraft to a safe
landing during periods of low visibility.
Oh ,yes l I l One other important function of the
Operations Department is liberty, and we proudly-
claim the title of ccLiberty Hounds Deluxen. Mrs.
Diana of Venice will vouch for that title we are sure.

Our first port of the Mediterranean cruise of 1952
was Oran, Algeria, made famous to all of us by the
North African campaign of 1942. Coming into the
beautiful harbor on Monday, .lanuary 21, WC Were
amazed to be greeted by a full fledged hail storm.
Very few of the crew were prepared for this kind of
weather in what most of us considered would be the
torrid climate of Africa.
Oran is the ccyoungestn city to be visited, but
nonetheless it has had a very stormy history. Settled
in the 10th Century by the Andalusian Arabs, it has
been taken, retaken, pillaged, and rebuilt by each of
the various conquerors of North Africa.
1 Oran has always been considered a most strategic
city because of its large port facilities and its location,
being the first large harbor east of Gibraltar on the
Under the enthusiasm of Cardinal Ximenes, Spain
conquered Mers-el-Kebir in 1505, and Oran in 1509,
and a third of the Mohammedan population of Oran
was massacred. The inquisition was introduced and
the fortifications were restored and Oran became the
Penal settlement of Spain. In 1708, the Bey of Mascara
seized the city, but the Spaniards recovered the city
in 1732, but after an earthquake in 1790 when great
damage and huge loss of lives wasisuifered, the Bey
of Mascara again appeared and a truce was made with
the Bey Mohammed, who took possession of the city
in 1792 and made it his residence instead of Mascara.
After the fall of Algiers, the bey fllassanj placed
himself under the protection of the conquerors and
shortly thereafter moved to Levant. The French Army
entered the city in January 1831, and took formal

4cNow, hear this! Now, hear this! Station the
special sea details. As these words come blaring over
the intercom, a general fever of excitement begins
spreading over the crew. Even the old sea dogs feel it.

Just a Hnal inspection before going ashore. The Navy
wants to make sure we are all smart and military in
appearance. For, after all, one of the primary reasons
for being in foreign port is to give people of other
lands a good impression of our Navy and its aims
. As we all line up for inspection, we are anticipat-
ing the good time we'll have ashore. For some itls the

miles south of Cartagena, Spain, built on the slopes
of Djebel Murdjedjo 11900 feetj, and the Fort of Santa
Cruz at a height of 386 meters the to east. The city
was originally cut into two parts by a ravine, which
has for the most part, been covered by boulevards
and buildings. West of the ravine lies old port, about
which rises what was the Spanish town, but few traces
of Spanish occupation remain. East of the ravine,
the modern quarter rises, like an amphitheatre and
is extending more and more to the northeast and to
the southeast along the plateau of Karquenta, where
the city's center now lies. A ring of populous suburbs
surround the city. Oran is the second city of Algeria
in commercial importance, and is a close rival of
Algiers. Gross tonnage has reached 16 million tons on
the import and export trade. There is no U.S. consulate.
The architecture of the city is most representative
of the peoples who have conquered and inhabited the
city. The mosque and adobe-like construction has been
subdued by the influence of the present population
which is two-thirds European and one-third Arab.
While in the city we visited Mers El Kebir, oft-
pictured home of the French Foreign Legion. We went
up into the native quarters and purchased rugs and
silks, and some made it to the rug factory, twenty-
iive miles away.

Although most of us saw very little of Naples
this year, we did manage to get a good look at this
very scenic harbor. At the South end of the. harbor
lies the famous resort island of Capri, wl1lCl1 IMS
been a favorite summer spot since early Roman
days. The entire island seemed to be dotted with
these resorts. To the North we saw the island of
Ischia which appeared to be blanketed with a carpet
of green from the many fruit and pine groves throu-
ghout the hillsides. Naples itself is quite a large
city as it is the third largest city in Italy with a
population of more than one million. There are
several large fortresses or 'Gcastlesn dating back to
the twelfth century which are scattered around the
The island of Sicily is separated from the Italian
mainland by the narrow Strait of Messina, and is the
largest island in the Mediterranean. It is often referred
to as the fairest in the Mediterranean.
On the northwestern coast at the mouth of a
shell-shaped, orange-bowered valley is Palermo, the
largest city in Sicily. lt was this city that the Steinaker
made her second port of call. It may be iittingly called
the ccmelting pot of the Mediterraneann, for thePhoe-

The engineering plant on our ship is one of the
most modern marine propulsion plants in general use
today. Our two shafts are capable of pushing the
ship through the water with the combined power of
six hundred automobiles speeding down the highway
with a traflic cop in pursuit. The modern destroyer
packs about three times the horse-power of a World
War I battleship, and can easily cut through the
water at speeds in excess of thirty knots.
We all know that the engineers, with their
boilers and turbines, make the ship go, but that is
only one of the important functions of the engineering
department. The ship is habitable because of the
many services the engineers provide. We fight ef-
fectively because the power for the electronic devices
flows from the engine rooms, and in battle, we can
ight back after suffering damage because the control
of damage is a highly specialized and well organized
activity of the engineering department.
Consider the fresh water used to satisfy our
thirst, cook our food, provide a refreshing shower,
and to do the laundry. The engineers are busy operating
distilling plants that make fresh water for all of
these uses, as well as for the boilers, from the salt
water of the ocean.
The refrigeration plant, or ice machines as they
are referred to aboard ship, are operated by engineers.
Through the use of frozen vegetables and meats we
eat as well as any land lubber while we are many
leagues from a garden and many weeks out of port.
Steam generated in the boilers is not only used
to turn the main engines, but finds its way at the
proper temperature and pressure to the laundry,
galley, heating, system, and ship's whistle and siren.
Electric power from the turbo generators that hum
smoothly in the engine rooms, lights the ship, trains
the guns, operates the radar, turns the ventilation
fans, and keeps the coffee pots steaming. There are
a thousand devices throughout the ship that function
because of the power from the boilers.
The shipfitters and damage controlmen of the
engineering department make the repairs to the hull
of the ship and the hull system, such as the fire
mains and sanitary systems, Fire-fighting and damage-
control equipment must be maintained by this group
of versatile repairmen. From this group comes the
nucleus of our damage control parties.
The engineers also operate and maintain shops
that are capable of making emergency repairs to
mechanical and electrical equipment, and are used
for the routine maintenance that must keep the
ship ready to fight at all times.
The nerve center for the internal functioning
of the ship is the l.C. Room flnterior Communicationsj.
Here the circuits for telephones, Nsquawk boxes", and
general announcing systems are controlled. Without
communications, the situation soon becomes Msnafun.
The gyro compass is also located in this nerve center,
and without this precise apparatus, modern naviga-
tion of the ship or operation of radar controlled
guns would be impossible.
In short, it may be said that the engineers are
concerned with repairs to the hull, maintenance and
repairs to all mechanical and electrical devices not
specifically assigned to another department, and the
operation, maintenance and repair of the main engines,
boilers, and their auxiliaries. This job requires the
combined skills of nine rating groups specialists.
The engineering department plays as important and
varied a role as does any group of men aboard ship.
Their jobs are some of the many that make our ship
one that can wget the job done and do it as well as

SHIP' S PARTIES
Not one, but two. We of the STEINAKER
don't do things by half measures giwe had a ship s
party on each of two consecutive mghts. In-as-much
as one party wasn't sufiicient to accomodate our
entire crew, the only logical solution was two. In
any case both parties turned out well above our
high expectations, and MAH Hands" enjoyed a
hilarious if not a spectacular evening.
. With the excitement and anticipation of the
forthcoming parties, the uStinky" was a beehive of
activity. Ironically enough, it was noted that the
activity centered more around personal chores than
routine ship's work. Yes, each and every sailor on
this uCan"' was determined to be the sharpest article
in attendance. Blues were pressed, white hats washed,
buttons sewed and shoes meticulously shined, for it
was rumored that the Army Hostess Service was
furnishing girls. GIRLS, WOMEN, what have you
the sailor's first love. The word was passed from
ear to ear, shipmate to shipmate so, hence, the
beehive of activity.
The time: 1930 hours. The place: U.S. Army
Canteen QSugar Bowlj, Trieste, F.T.T. This was the
spot selected by our Welfare and Recreation Com-
mittee for our parties. Faces could be seen peering
nervously in the canteen windows. Our anxious early
arrivers had shown up and were ustraining at the
bit" for the doors to open. They did! Begins the
fun! The first party was underway. It was unbelie-
vable how quickly the house was jammed to capacity.
Beer, food and general good humor prevailed. MQuiet

would like to commence the evening's entertainmentw.
'The origin of Trieste is lost in the darkness of
ancient times, however, its history began in the
year 128 B.C. when the Romans captured the few
hamlets on the hill of San Giusto - new the Old
splction of the city - which rises from the waters at
t e head of the Gulf of T ' t h
of the Adriatic Sea. . nes ei at t e north end
In 419 B.C. the inhabitants of Trieste were given
Roman citizenship, and under Emperor Oetavian
gprgustus, Trieste enjoyed an era of prosperity and
1 ization, evidence of which can be seen today in
th ' .
e ruins of the Roman Theatre only a short rlismncc
What's this, a floor show yet? The Welfare
Recreation Committee certainly went overboard
this ship's party evolution. That's the "
anything for the boys in blue. In any event,
entertainment was wonderful. The female

The second party was, of course, every bit as
good, and enjoyed just as much as the first. It may
be added that if one were fortunate enough to attend
both parties, he would have found the same floor
show, and both parties identical in every respect.
We, the crew of tl1e STEINAKER, wish t0

mittee for their fine job and hard work in arranging

In 1919, as a result of the Treaty of San Germain,
the city was aquired by Italy, with the Italian

American and Yugoslav Troops.

The Steinaker visited Venice, Italy from 21
February to 26 February 1952 and it afforded an
opportunity for all hands to see one of the most
unusual cities in the world. Venice has been the mecca
of tourists for more than a hundred years. Venice,
of course, is built on water, a series of islands at the
head of the Adriatic Sea. Its main streets are Lagoons
and Canals on which float the Romantic Gondolas,
the Motor Launches, the Canal Barges, and the Ferry
Boats. There are, however, streets and bridges on
which pedestrian traffic may stroll.
Venice was in her glory during the middle ages
when her ships controlled the richest trade routes in
the world. I'Ier decline began in the sixteenth century,
but her renown as a romantic, beautiful spot has
never failed her. The aspect of Venice is fabulous.
In certain hours of dawn, of sunset, of night, it makes
one think of a single oriental architecture laden with
decorations and emotions. Today, Venice has about
300,000 inhabitants, a total never reached even in
the period of her maximum spendor, between 500
and 700. In reality, the population is far superior
to the actual possibilites of absorbtion of housing
and above all of the building areas. Therefore the
Venetians live 'arubbing elbows", practically stratified
one on top of the other, with a density which is
slightly lower to that of Shanghai. The general confi-
guration of the city is that of a large ish, with its
Cortina d'Ampezzo is the key resort of the
Dolomites. It has been named as the site of the
1956 'Winter Olympic Games. There are excellent ski
slopes, a bob-sled track, toboggan runs, ski jumps,
and skating rinks. It is one of the finest winter
resorts in the world. The scenery is magnificent.
Twenty-one men made a three day tour to this
resort on 3 March 1952. Nearly everyone was equipped
with skis and all the other accessories, but it is
seriously doubted that more than three men had
ever seen a pair of skis before, much less having
been on them. Our intentions were good though, and
most everyone was determined to give it a whirl.
We stayed at the Cristallo Hotel. The chow
was excellent, the bar was convenient, and best of
all, there was no 0600 reveille. We had a big con-
tingent the first day, who set out for the toughest
ski run of all. After many precarious cable car rides
to the top of the mountain, we all donned our skis

The m1ss1on of the supply department can be
expressed by the statement, awe feed them, clothe
them, and pay themn. To perform these functions
requires the services of one oflicer and forty five enlisted
men. Although the smallest department on the ship,
we are one of the largest contributors to morale.
Payday, the food we serve, the services of our ship's
store and laundry, all tend to make our ship a happier
and more efficient fighting unit. For administrative
purposes, our department is sub-divided into five
The general stores section is responsible for the
procurement of all supphes necessary for the operation
of the ship with the exception of med1cal stores and
ammunition Headed by Ray Wynne, SKI the general
stores section has been called upon to secure every
thmg from a low pressure air compressor to curtam
hooks The bulk of this sect1on s work consists of
keepmg the ship stocked with cleaning with mmm
hooks The bulk of this section s work consists of keep
1ng the ship stocked w1th cleaning gear, paint, and
other general consumables
The d1sburs1ng section handles pay records, travel
claims, lnsurance, bonds, and income tax While on
an extended forelgn cru1se lt must procure and ex
change the various foreign currencies for the conve
mence of the crew and pay all bills mcurred by the
shlp wh1le m port Twice a month this section gives
an added boost to morale by paying the officers and
crew a sum of about V 13 000 aDuken Redmond
DKSN, 1S undoubtedly the most popular man aboard
on these days
Under the direction of John Davis, SHI the
ship s service act1v1t1es consist of the ship s store
laundry, and barber shop The ship s store, run by
Bob Whltcomb SK3, carries candy, cigarettes, toilet
art1cles, Elm, and a limited supply of clothing
Average monthly sales amount to V 3000. Cavls,
assisted by John Namie, SHSN, cuts approximately
150 heads of hair per week, while the laundry, ma.
naged by Henry Linster, SHSN, turns out a weekly
wash in a space of five days to the strains of the
uWabash Cannon Ballw.
Capably administered by Chief Commissary Ste-
ward S. E. Daniel, the commissary section plans
menus and prepares and feeds 900 meals per day.
During an extended cruise, this section must carefully
plan and load forty tons of required stores for a
sixty day period and procure various fresh provisions
which are available in ports of call It IS Chief Damels
proud boast that only two men on the ship have
defied his weight gaining program After the meals for
the day have been served and the ship settles down
for the night Jim Lingenfeterl, CS3 b6glIlS the task
of baking the bread and pastries requrred for the
next day s menu
With John Hall SD3, in charge, the stewards
prepare and serve meals in the wardroom and are
responsible for the cleanhneess and upkeep of the
wardroom country While at sea, they maintain a
round the clock watch to provide sandwiches and
coffee for the watch standers

The town of Cannes was founded by the Marseil-
lais on the ancient foundation of the old Roman fort,
44Castrum Marcellinumn. It was destroyed by the
Saracens who led away its population as slavesg it
was later rebuilt by families from Genoa.
During the 5th Century, Cannes, like the rest of
the coast, depended on the Monastery ok' Lerins, till
it was pillaged by the Saracens between 700 and 730,
It was joined to Provence in the 14th Century and
has always played an important part in the Franco-
Spanish and Franco-Sardinian Wars whose theatre was
always Provence. Charles 5th. of Spain took it in
1524 and 1536, Charles Emmanuel took the castle'in
TOUR CF SWITZERLAND
Two of our crew, F. C. Pogue, QM1 and J. E.
Kerr, SN were fortunate enough to visit Switzerland
while our ship was at Cannes, France. The tour started
the morning of March 21st over the same route Napo-
leon took on his way through the Alps.
y 1 The first rest stop was Castellane, a small French
hamlet by the stream Spannso with an ancient stone
bridge so narrow that the bus had but a few inches
to spare on either side when crossing. A very sharp
turn at both ends of the bridge made things still more
complicated. The tour traveled onward over mountain
and around hairpin turns that would have buffaloed
the average american driver. In short order it passed
through Digne Gap, Grenoble fnear here they got a
look at Europe's highestxmountain, Mont Blancj and
finally finished the day's travel in Aix Les Bains,
France. This Place is sometimes called ccaches and
pains" by Englishmen and Americans for people
migrate here from miles around during the summer
season to dip their rheumatic bodies in the mineral
waters. However, the iirst day of spring was too
early in the tourist season for anything to be open
except for a hotel, movie theatre and a small bar
Early the next morning they traveled onward
to Geneva, Switerzland's watch capital, where they
were able to do some shopping and sightseeing. Points
of interest were the original League of Nations Buil-
ding, the 'cbirthplacen of the Bed Cross the United
Nation Building, Bed Cross Central H.Q., monument
tovthe religious reformation, university of Geneva,
the international auto show and the Swiss navy
side wheeler steamers much like the old river steamers
sometimes seen on the Mississippi. Except for the
style of architecture and the signs in French the
city was very like a typical American city. From
Geneva the tour traveled along the north shore of
the Lake of Geneva to Lausanne, then northeastward
through Moudon, Payerne and Murten to Berne. Just
592. The resistance of Cannes and of the
Saint Margaret in 1706 stopped the invasion of
Amedeo of Sardinia. In 1766 the
took it. lt was near Cannes that Napoleon
on his return from Elba.
Among its monuments Cannes contains an 1
century tower built on the site of the ccCastrum
linumn, and various old churches. Its chief
monuments are the casino, Lord Broughanfs
and the Botanical Gardens. f1867l.
But the chief wealth of Cannes is its climate,
its winter temperature even exceeds that of N
The port was built in 1838.
prior to entering Berne, the first of several
wooden bridges so constructed as to keep them
being blocked by the snow during the winter
The second night was spent in Berne,
land's capital. One of the more famous night
here was a beer garden that boasts the
largest beer barrel. So large is it that customers
served at tables placed on top of the barrel.
morning revealed Berne as a quaint city of
ancient traditions but with all the modern
niences. The stores are built out over the
to afford maximum protection from snow. F
that apparently were watering troughs for
years ago may still be seen in the center of the
streets ornamented by a colorfully painted statue
a knight, mythological character or animal.
over the city are numerous clock towers. So many
in fact, no one could have an excuse for not
the time of day. Many are extremely elaborate,
400 year old clock not only tells time but also
moon phase, moon and sunrise sign of zodiacal
and the date. In addition, it has marching
dancing bears, a rooster that crows, a jester
rings bells and Father Time who turns an hour
marks the hours with a stick and wags his
on the hour. The city's emblem is a bear and
be seen everywhere, on statues, stained glass
flags, toys as well as three pits of the real
that are trained to do amazing tricks in exchangli
for food thrown to them by the delighted
From Berne the tour traveled on, getting
good view of the famed mountains of Nonch
and .lung Frau fVirginl and finally stopped at
for lunch and sight seeing. The town with
chalets located on the shores of beautiful
lake and surrounded by snow capped mountains
JUN as one would imagine Switzerland to be.

The " Yeomen " in the ship's office are the
people responsible for filing all request chits in the
"Circular File". Truthfully though the work involved
in keeping over 300 men's service records up to date
is tremendous and it is the primary duty for all
personnel attached to the 6'ship's' office" to maintain
the even flow of administrative and oiiicial correspon-
dence pertaining to the ship itself and all personnel
C.I.C. What do those letters mean? No - you're
wrong. They actually mean Combat Information
Center. The primary duty of "Combat', is to collect,
display and evaluate all incoming information and
diseminate it to the people and stations concerned.
In CIC we see an example of team-work at it best.
The Riviera is the narrow belt of coast which
lies between the mountains and the sea all round
the Gulf of Genoa, extending from Nice on the West

Riviera di Levante fccthe coast of the rising sumrj.
The first is the portion between Nice and Genoa,
the second between Genoa and Spezia. All this belt
is sheltered by the mountains from the cold north
winds. The average temperature in winter is 490 F.

ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT qconrp a
All of us on the STEINAKER think that we
have one of the best engineering plants in Des Lant,
and just to show you, we have packed these pages
with pictures of all of us in our engine rooms, fire
rooms and shops. Take a look. They are pretty nice
places to work, aren't they?
A lot of hard work goes into the maintenance of
the engineering plant, but we feel it is worth it because
the old steam factory has a record of reliability
to be proud of, and that extra bright work and
clean paint you see had always received a 'well done'
A The operation and maintenance of the engineer-
ing plant, along with other jobs that the engineers
do, such as damage control and hull repair, require
the efforts of nearly one hundred men. The comple-
ment of our department during the Mediterranean
cruise was 4, officers and 86 enlisted men. To describe
completely the organization that effectively operates
this large department would require much space.
Briefly, the organization is like this: All of us are
a part of the Engineering Department which is headed
by the Engineer Officer, Mr. Brodhacker. Then, for
administrative reasons - so that the chain of com-
mand operates smoother in both directions - there
are two divisions. We call one the ccEn division and
the other the GRD division. These are really combina-
tions of the boiler, main propulsion, auxiliary, repair,
and electrical divisions which would be found on a
large ship such as a cruiser.
The ccEn division, which is headed by Mr. Walter,
consists of the main propulsion groups and the boiler
groups. Chief Hallam is the group leader for the for-
ward engine room and Chief Mitchell has the after
engine room. The boiler group is headed by Chief
Melendy, assisted by Fulcer and Weisgerber, both
boilermen first class, who take charge of the forward
and after firerooms respectively.
The KRD: division contains the electricians, damage
control and repair rates, and auxiliary groups, with
Mr. Webster as the division officer. The electricians
group leader is Chief Swift. The damage control
group - which includes the pipe fitters and metalsmiths
group - which includes the pipe fitters and metals-
miths is headed by Boyd, pipefitter first class. Chief
Hardy is the auxiliary group leader.
You will find that all of us in the Engineering
Department belong to a special group having ratings
that stem from the basic fireman background. fThere
are a few exceptions, as always: seamen that only
recently transferred to the department and a yeoman
who keeps the records in the log roomj. As a fireman
apprentice and fireman, a man may be assigned to
any one of the five groups in the department. After
he has completed an indoctrination at general details
and familiarization in one or more of the groups, he
is encouraged to strike for a rate to become a specialjggg
in one of the ratings.
Each of the nine rates which we have in the
Engineering Department aboard our ship is herein
described so that a better understanding can be had
of the jobs that we do as individuals and the overall
work of the department.
Steam is the propelling agent of all of our large
naval ships. The efficient productions of large quanti-
ties of energy in the form of steam is the job of the
Boilerman. He must operate all type of marine boilers
and fireroom machinery, transfer, test and take
inventory of fuel and water. He maintains and repairs
boilers, pumps, and associated equipment. He serves
as a member of a damage control party, supervises
steaming watches and is responsible for immediate
action in case of boiler or fireroom casualties. He plans,
supervises and coordinates these activities under the
direction of the Engineer Officer.
DAMAGE CONTROLMAN QDCJ
The Damage Controlman is truly the Navy's
cdack, of all tradesn, for he must be equally adept
at fighting fires, carpentry, painting, damage control
work, and plumbing. He is also a key man in a damage
control party and has as one of his primary responsib-
ilities, the maintenance of the watertight integrity
of our ship. Naturally, to the damage controlman
falls the task of training and coordinationg the repair
parties into an effective organization capable of restor-
ing the damage of battle and keeping the ship afioat
During World War ll there were many instances
in which our ships remained afloat to out-fight the
enemy because damage control parties succeeded in
repairing battle damage on the spot. Oil or gasoline
fires at sea, which not so long ago sealed the d00Il1
of a ship, are usually brought under control by today'S
ELECTRICIAN MATES QEMJ
Without electrical power, a modern ship would
be almost helpless. lt is the Electrician's Mates' respon-
sibility to generate and distribute electricity through
out the ship and maintain all electrical equipment
the peak of efficiency. His duties include
maintenance, and repair of generators, electric
Search lights, and the general lighting system
aboard ship. In addition to this, the
Mate stands engine room watches, during which
is responsible for the proper operation of all
equipment and control panels.

TOUR OF SWITZERLAND fconhj if
In the real alpine country now, they passed
through the towns of Zweisimmen, Gstaad, Chateau-
d' Oex, Gruyere fwhere the famed cheese originatedj,
Chatel-St. Denis Very and finally arrived in Montreaux.
Enroute, the many people passed who were out for
Sunday afternoon strolls waved cheerfully and ap-
peared a bit surprised to see sailors in the mountains.
Once or twice minor avalanches could be seen that
had turned bare streaks downamountainside leaving
a high pile of snow at the foot.
At Montreaux they stopped at the magnificent
Namso, the palace hotel overlooking the eastern end
of thelake of Geneva and the Alps. Monday morning
they took a cog-wheel railway to Rochers-de-Naye at
the top of a mountain of the same name. Here the
snow was several feet deep and the sunshine dazzling.
At first a more perfect day would have been hard
to find but suddenly clouds blew in and obscured
the view, therefore the tour returned to Montreaux
early and went on to Geneva along the north coast
of the lake for more sightseeing and shopping before
leaving the country. Before nightfall they reluc-
tantly left the delightful, friendly country of many
languages, where every able bodied man from 16 to
60 is a soldier and yet their country has been neutral
for many years. Monday night was spent in Aix-
Lex-Bains and Tuesday saw them returning via
Route Napoleon to Cannes, France.
The period of March 21-25, 1952 for the members
of the Paris tour will be a source of interesting stories
and fond memories that will grow extravagant with
the passing of time. We all anticipated an interesting
and excitingvisit and none of us was disappointed.
The 'five day tour actually consisted of three
days and 4 nights in Paris and two days travelling
We departed at 0700 March 21, from Cannes
and after travelling about 752, of the length of
France we arrived in Paris at 2115, eager and ready
to start seeing the city. In our attempt to experience
the city's night life and still visit the many places
of interest, we learned . very quickly that the one
problem was to End time to sleep. Many of us solved
this by getting a couple of hours of sleep in the
morning and right after supper.
During the daytime on our initiative and on
organized tours we visited the streets, buildings, and
monuments that have immortalized Paris.
The most beautiful square in the world is
probably the Place de la Concorde. From the center
of this square you can look the entire length of the
Champs-Elysees, a great and beautiful boulevard, to
the Arc de Triomphe and then turn and look across
the Jardin des Tuileries to the Louvre and then
turning to your right you can see the beautiful
Concorde Bridge and the Eiffel tower. In the center
of this square is the Oberlisk of Luxor and around
the square in little stone pavilions are eight statues
symbolizing the 8 great provincial cities of France.
The Arc de Triomphe and the Eternal Flame of
Remembrance is very 'impressive but equally impres-
sive is its setting in the center of the Place de
l' Etoile with the harmonious arrangement of the
twelve avenues radiating from it and all the buil-
dings facing the center of the square of exactly the
same height and shape so as not to detract from
the Arc de Triomphe. .
We visited many other places of interest such
as the Pantheon, Eiffel tower, Invalides, Sorbonne,
the Left Bank, the Latin Quarter, Montmartre
Section, Montparnasse, and the Cathedral Notre Dame
and spent an afternoon at Versailles, built by Louis
XIV, enjoyed by Louis V and paid for by Louis XVI.
There were pleasant hours spent walking the
streets of Paris such as the Rue de la Paix, Boulevard
Saint Michel fBoul Michj and sitting at side walk
Cafes watching the people and trying to take candid
snapshots fespecially of the girlsj. Some of us expe-
rienced the pleasures of French cooking at some of
the well established restaurants.
Then there was Paris at night, the Rue Pigalle
crowded with night clubs, bars, dives, and joints all
featuring la femme and the Bal Tabarin and its
fantastically lavish floor show and Morgan's bar
wliere a bowl of chili and a hot dog at 4 in the
morning broke the montony of champagne and at-
tractive womeng the Champs-Elysees and its lavish
night clubs especially the Lido, the Left Bank and
its smoke filled cellar night clubs with the Vieux
Colombier packing them in with a solid live pi6C9
dombo featuring Sydney Bechet fa truly great Dixie
Land jazz clarinetistjg the Folies Bergeres whose
show is extremely extravagant and the spirit of
some of its numbers seems to be without restraint.
We all found it difficult to bid goodbye to Paris
the morning of March 25 and when we left mQS11
of us had hopes of returning someday. "1

ccThe effectiveness of any navy is always gauged
by its ability to damage and destroy the enemy. Suc-
cess in such a venture depends upon various weapons,
which on board ship are underthe supervision of the
Gunnery Departmentn. The effectiveness of the Stei-
naker can then be judged by the accurecy of our firing
whether it be five inch, 40 millimeter, depth charges,
hedgehogs, or torpedoes. The 4cStinkyv has always
managed to get its share, and more too, of drones,
sleeves and theoretically destroyed Subs and surface
targets with its torpedo and depth charge attacks.
The ship has always had high marks in gunnery, these
marks being the result of the best ordnance gang in
the whole aTin-can Navyn. Any member of the
ordnance gang, whether he be GM, TM, or FC has
a working rate. Just because a man is a petty oflicer,
is no sign that he doesn't work. For illustration we
have 44' men in the department, and of these about
one half are rated men. These men are not specialists
in just one particular phase of their work, but can
perform almost any duty of their rate aboard this or
any other similar ship. The following may serve as
a hint to the type of man it takes to become a member
of the ordnance gang and the type of work he does.
fThe Ten Tall Menj ,
As in all destroyers, the more intelligent, good-
looking and astute characters are found in the torpedo
gang. The function of this gang is the maintenance
of the depth charge battery and the torpedoes which
are referred to as ccfishn in the Navy. In charge of
these we have such capable men as Chief Torpedoman
Copperberg whose decisions are always accuratef?j
JustQ?j and unquestionedQ???j Next in charge we
have TMI Gerald ccThe Clowrm Randolph - part
torpedoman, part gangster, not much sailor, home
owner, land owner, or what have you. The last of
the petty officers but not the feast is Lewis ccShore
Patroln Becker TM3, lumber salesman par excellence,
who is serving modestly but efficiently as custodian
of the tube mount. Heading the list of efficient strikers
is well-liked, quiet mannered Wayne Barber, who is
a farmer of the first water in his own right. . . David,
ccArabD Stehn is Barber's most efficient and forgetful
helper. . . Who puts the vitamins in Brooklyn ? George
Terry, a true reserve who has answered the call to
arms. . . 4cMushn Musbach, a dapper young man,
slaves among the K-guns with no thought ofhimself. . .
J oe Pucciarella keeps his assigned K-guns andhidepth
charges gleaming and deadly Qwhen they workj. Sam-

' Contrary to popular speculation on just exactly
what a Fire Controlman is, he is not a member of
the abucket brigaden. The main function of a Fire
Controlman is to maintain, repair and operate the
various and sundry equipment that has to do with
aiming and firing the ship's guns and other offensive
weapons. His motto is cclf you didn't do it, radio itn.
In charge of the Fire Controlmen we have Chief Holly

THE BULGARIAN TRIP
Mined roads, tank traps and Greek soldiers every
half-mile greeted us as we approached the Bulgarian
border on a tour sponsored by the American Consulate
at Salonika and under the auspices of the Greek
Army. Bouncing over the roughest roads imagineable
for the last 15 miles of our journey we saw, for the
first time, what the Greek countryside was really
like. Most of the land was poor by American standards,
the people managing to exist mostly by sheep herding
and by farming the 'rocky soil. Almost every small
town had it barracks and soldiers, and as we ap-
proached the border, the road became rougher.
We passed over a railroad bridge, hoping that
a train wouldn't choose that particular moment to
come charging down the tracks. On the last ten
miles, barbed wire, tank traps and barricades were
everywhere. Upon our arrival we were' greeted by
two Greek majorsrand some other oflicers who showed
us the Greek-Bulgarian border. We had a chance to
inspect the cclron Curtainn, in this case, merely a
wooden fence designed to keep the Bulgarians from
looking out into Greek territory.
Salonika, known as Thessaloniki in Greece, with
a population of 350,000 was founded by Carsander,
king of Macedonia, in 315 B.C. and was named for
his wife Thessalonika, the sister of Alexander the
Great. Its location on the Via Egnatia, the main
line of communication from Rome to the Near East,
gave it considerable importance as a commercial and
intellectual center in Bome and Macedonia. St. Paul
preached here and founded the church to which his
Epistles of the Thessalonians are addressed.
The history of Salonika is a repetition of siege
and occupation by all the great powers that dominated
the Eastern Mediterranean at various times for the
last two thousand years.
During World War 1, Salonika was a center of ope-
rations against Bulgaria and the central powers by
the Allies, and in 1917, some 600,000 men were
stationed in the district. The city was the scene of
northeastern Greece's resistance to guerrilla warfare
after the close of World War II.
Points of interest in the city include the White
Tower constructed in the 15th century by the
Venetians and used by the Turks as a prison. It
stands as a prominent landmark of the harbor. The
Citadel or Acropolis, is of Byzantine age, 6th century,
and occupies the highest point of the city. It is now
used as a military prison. Remains of the ancient
city walls which were built in the 6th century extend
for several miles through the northern and eastern
portion of the city. Greek soldiers still maintain a
lookout from the .fortifications along the walls. The
Church of St. Sophia resembles the celebrated church

Have you ever heard the term ccPing Jockeys?
That's a phrase used when referring to sonarmen, and
they play a very vital part in the anti-submarine phase
of our navy. The only reward for the many long une-
ventful watches is an occasional SONAR CONTACTn
at which time all sonarmen man their attack team
stations and assist the Captain in making a successful
attack. In the recent fleet wide advancement in rating
examinations the sonar gang batted 100 CX, Three
men were recommended for advancement and all three
came through with flying colors by passing the exa-
mination and being advanced to the next higher pay
The post war era left the U.S. Navy with the
tremendous task of patroling the seas of the world.
In order to coordinate the activities of it's global units
the navy relies chiefly on its radio communications.
The major systems of radio communications are radio
telegraph, radio telephone, and radio teletype. Radio-
telegraph is the primary system in use because it is
best adapted where large distances and poor atmo-
pheric conditions are to be contended with. Radio-
telephone is the voice radio system that is controlled
by C.I.C. personnel and is used for short distances
only Q15 - 50 milesj. Rapid radio communications in
peace and war are one of the important factors that
make the U.S. Navy the ruler "of the seas and we of
the STEINAKER are fortunate in having a well
trained, efiicient Radio gang.
Istanbul, formerly Constantinople and named
after Constantine the Great is located on the European
Continent at the southern entrance of The Bosporus,
that narrow strait where Europe and Asia face each
other. It commands the gateway between the Black
Sea and the Sea of Marmara, which 160 miles away
opens out into Mediterranean waters through' the
Dardanelles. The Hellespont - as the Dardanelles were
formerly called - has a wealth of historical and romantic
memories about it - memories of ancient Troy that
once dominated its southern entrance, legends of
Leander who swam the I-Iellespont to visit his
sweetheart, Hero, and of Alexander the Great leading
an army into Asia by a bridge of boats in 330 B.C.
Since prehistoric times there has been a settlement
on the site of Istanbul. The Golden Horn, a iive-mile-
long inlet from the Bosporus, provided an attractive,
safe harbor. At about 667 B.C., seafaring Greek colonists
from Megara took possesion of the place and called
it Byzantium. Nearly 1,000 years later the Romans,
11nder Constantine the Great, captured the city, en-
larged and beautified it and strengthened its fortifica-
tions. In 330 A.D. Constantine gave it his name and
made it the capital of his empire. It continued as the
capital of the Eastern Roman Empire fByzantine
Empire, until the Ottoman Turks captured it in 1453.
The Byzantine Empire was the strange oriental
after-glow ofthe sinking Roman Empire. Constantinople
became the capital of the Christian Roman
Empire. Constantinople became the capital of the
Christian Roman Empire after the fall of Rome.
Roman law and the ancient Roman traditions persisted
in the East, though Greek soon replaced Latin as the
popular tongue, and life and art became more and
more oriental in tone. It is precisely for its preserva-
tion of the civilization of Rome and Greece, and for
its service as a bulwark against invasion from Asia,
that the Byzantine Empire is credited with a work
of incalculable value. To be sure, the scholars of
Constantinople were so dazzled by the wealth of
learning they had inherited that they did little with
it except study it and compile books of extracts and
The emperor Justinian ruled the Byzantine Empire
during the period of its greatest glory from 527 to 565.
At this time the empire extended from southern Spain
to the valley of the Tigris and Euphrates, and from
the Danube River to upper Egypt. In Justinian's
glowing church of Santa Sophia the sunlight poured
down from 40 windows in the great dome, washing in
golden light the gold mosaics with their bright-colored
saints, the columns of jasper, marble, alabaster and
porphyry, and the designs of mother-of-pearl. Heart
of the life of Constantinople was the Hippodromes
where 30,000 people sat under purple awnings of silk
to watch the chariot races and to enjoy the triumpllal
processions of victorious generals, who distributed to
the crowd loot taken from the Vandals. Constantinopl0
grew more and more oriental in tastes and sympathies-
gayer, and also weaker. ,
When the Crusaders came at the close of the 11th
century, they were amazed to find a city of a million
people, with paved and lighted streets, great parks,
hospitals, theatres, efiicient police, fine palaces, and

excellent schools. In 1204- the Crusaders captured and
looted the city. Many great works of art of the past
were destroyed, and the famous bronze horses were
carried off to St. Mark's in Venice. A ghost of the
Byzantine Empire survived for a time, until in l4153
the fierce Ottoman Turks closed in on the doomed
city of Constantinople, killed the emperor Constantine
XIII, plundered, murdered, and took slaves. Since
then Quntil l453j the city has been the Turkish capital,
and the crescent has replaced the the cross over Santa
A century later the Turkish armies were thunder-
ing at the gates of Vienna in the very heart of Europeg
while Asia and Egypt and northern Africa formed
part of their vast and barbarous empire. The Black
Sea was practically a Turkish lake, and Turkish corsairs,
reinforced by pirates of other nations, ruled the Mediter-
ranean. ,Solyman the Magnificent was lord of 50 million
Moslems and Christians of some 20 races. Constan-
tinople was transformed into a fabulously rich and
colorful Mohammedan city, drawing its wealth
the trade that passed through its gates. But within
two centuries this magnificent capital of the world,
with its 65,370 square miles of territory, was on the
decline due to poor ruling and high taxes which caused
revolt of the Balkan countries. Its territory was
reduced to a triangle of 30 by 40 miles immediately
G-hazi Mustapha Kemal, who later added the
surname of Ataturk, became the president of the
new Turkish Republic after overthrowing the gultan
in 1922, and because of the unwillingness of war-tom
Europe to fight, won for Turkey possessions that new
total about 300,000 square miles. The population is
more than l6,000,000. Until he died in 1938, Kemal
worked tirelessly to introduce modern methods of
farming and manufacture among a people still plod-
ding in the ways of 2,000 years ago. As a Mohammedan
state, the law of Turkey was based on the Koran,
but after the califate was abolished, a new civil code,
based on the Swiss code, was adopted fin 19261 to
replace to Koran. The religious orders were abolished
and monasteries closed. In l930, the name of Istanbul
fStamboulj, formerly applied only to the old Turkish
quarter od Constantinople, was made the official
name of the whole city.
Turkey's strategic position, athwart a major land
route between Europe and Asia and its control of the
Dardanelles, has given the country a key position in
world diplomacy. During the second World War
Turkey was exposed on both sides to attack, and so
from the outset held fast to a policy of armed neu-
trality. With weapons provided inparty by Germany
and in part by Great Britain, the Turks built up their
armaments, then, as the power of the Axis waned,
gradually strenghtened their ties with the Allied powers,
and at the present time they are a member of NATO.
LEMNOS ISLAND, GREECE
The chief importance of Lemnos is its strategic
location near the entrance of the Dardanelles. The
history of the island parallels that of the mainland
of Greece down through the centuries, but because
of its insular remoteness, the ravages of occupation
have been slight in comparison with other parts of
Greece. In World War II, the island was occupied
by approximately 8,000 German troops.
Our visit to Lemnos was at the town of Kastron,
the capital of the island, which is situated on the
west coast. Kastron has a population of about 3,500.
A rugged hill overlooks the town and its small
harbor and on it are the ruins of a 13th century
Venetian castle and fort.
There is a legend about the history of Lemnos:
lphistoa, the son of Jupiter and Juno, landed on
Lemnos when he was thrown bodily from the com-
munity of gods for being over zealous in his atten-
tions to Aphrodite. As further punishment, Zeus
inflicted the women of Lemnos with balitosis and the
resulting disinterest of Iphistoa and the other men
of the island led to an uprising by the women who
killed all the men at Atrophone, just north of Kastron.
Later when Jason and Argonauts, returning from
their quest of the ccGolden Fleecen, put into Lemnos
they found themselves so welcome in the manless
island that they decided to make it their home.
Twentieth-century Kastron is no longer the stage
for capricious Greek gods, but it has a charm and
quaintness that makes it most unusual -among liberty
ports. It is even most unusual among places noted
for their charm and quaint beauty. Cape Cod appea1'S
like a carnival midway when compared with the
quiet charm of this fishing village of little cobble-
stone streets and small shops. The miniature harbor
and breakwater where fishing boats anchor and the
gaily painted stucco houses appear like an artist"s
picture in the bright Aegean sun light. There may be
some who missed the aesthetic aspect of Kastron,
but few if any, missed the good time of a lively
American soft ball game played on the town SOCCGI'
Another enjoyable event was the entertaining of
thirty orphans and underprivileged children on board.
Lunch, followed by a tour of the ship, left the children
Kready to join the Navyv: according to the director
of the school. The toys which had been bought 111
the States were distributed to eager hands. The tour
was highlighted by an unscheduled landing of 3
flying boat containing the Naval .Attache to Greece.

ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT fcontj
ENGINE MAN fENj
The smooth performance of all internal-combus-
tion engines - which play a tremendously important
role in powering the planes, boats, and ships of the
Navy - is the responsibility of the Engineman. He
must operate, maintain and repair internal-combustion
engines, operate and maintain auxiliaries, and refrigera-
tion and air conditioning equipment. He supervises
engine watches, keeps records and reports, and super-
vises the work and training of engineman strikers.
A fireman is called upon to do a great variety
of jobs - he must be able to serve as a competent
assistant to the petty oflicers holding any of the eleven
ratings of the Engineering Department. He must
know how to light off boilers, operate pumps, motors
and turbines, read gauges, and maintain and clean
engines, machinery and compartments. He must also
stand security and fire watches, take part in drills
and perform general' detail and other duties.
I. C. ELECTRICIAN UCD
As Naval ships become larger and more complex,
the need for the ccConning Oflicern to obtain split-
second information from all parts of the ship becomes
more and more acute. The I.C. flnterior Communica-
tionsj equipment brings him ccthe wordn and it is
the responsibility of the I. C. Electrician to keep this
equipment m top working order His duties include
standing of 1nter1or communications and gyro compass
watches maintenance and repair of all I C systems
and other lnformation transmitting and receiving
ment pubhc address systems and the announcing
systems aboard this ship
MACHINIST S MATE fMMj
The many engines compressors refrigeration and
other types of machmery aboard a modern naval
vessel require much care and attention. This is the
responsibility of the machinist's mate. He must main-
tain and operate the main engines for turbinesj, and
all the auxiliary engine room and boiler room equip-
ment such as pumps, oil purifiers, governors, and
reduction gears. He must also make repairs to out-
side machinery such as the steering engine, Winches,
and anchor windlass. He also operates and maintains
the refrigeration and ventilation equipment, two
systems which are very essential to the comfort of
those who live on board.
Working with metals has become so common-
place that we seldom think of its importance. Repair
of the ship's hull, Ettings, and machinery is, however,
work very vital to the daily upkeep of a naval vessel.
His duties include cutting, welding, riveting metal,
and the designing and construction of sheet metal
equipment such as lockers, trays, and cabinets. Also,
together with the Pipefitters and the Damage Control-
man, he is responsible for maintaining and repairing
the ship's drainage and ventilation systems.
PIPE FITTERS CFPQ
Naval vessels must invariably contain a very
complex piping system to carry the fluids which are
piped from one point to another. These systems, to
name a few include steam compressed air fuel oll
lubricating oil freon and water It IS the duty of the
pipe fitter to provide the constant care necessary for
the mamtenance of these many systems To carry out
to assemble fabricate and repair shipboard machinery
and hull piping systems He must also install and
repair all valves and fittmgs for the shlp s plumbing
system Of course to perform these tasks requires a
thorough knowledge of the piping systems and also
the technique of repair such as oxyacetulene and arc
welding and the use of the ordinary shop and hand

RHODES, GREECE 1
The Island of Rhodes is the furtherest east of
the Aegean Isles and is only ten miles from the coast
of Asia Minor. The only town of any size on the island
is the Capital, Rhodes. It is located at the northeast
extremity of the island and has a population of about
The City of Rhodes was founded in 4108 B.C.
by the Dorian Colonists of the island. It soon became
an important center of commerce and learning. The
colossus of Rhodes, a gigantic bronze statue over
100 feet high, erected at the entrance of the harbor
was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The great bronze statue was of the sun god Helios,
the god of Rhodians, or of Appolo. Erected in 280 B.C.,
legend has it that the giant work stood astride the
entrance of the harbor, but more probably it stood
at one side of the entrance. It was overthrown by
an earthquake in 224 B.C. but long remained, even
in fragments, as an object of wonder. It was bought
and carried away in 656 A.D. by a ccjunk dealern.
Rhodes has been ruled by Greeks, Macedonians,
and Romans, and at the division of the Roman Empire
it fell to the eastern or Byzantine, portion. In 1309
it was seized by the Knights Hospitalers, a cruisading
order, who rebuilt and fortified it against the Turks.
Walls and towers of the fortification still stand. Several
Turkish expeditions were led against the town, but
it was not until 1511 that the religious order was
forced from the island. Turkish rule continued until
1912 when the island was occupied by Italy. The
peace treaty ofter World War II ceded the Dodecanese,
including Rhodes to Greece.
Athens is situated at the southern end 'of the
fertile plain of Attica, where from earliest times
cereals, olives, figs and vines have grown in abundance.
This fact, and also the fact that it was far enough
away from the sea to enjoy security against a
hostile fleet, favoured the growth of the ancient
community, which laid the foundations of Europe's
The most prominent feature in the Athenian
landscape is the Lycabettus 11112 ft.j which directly
overhung the ancient city. Nearby stands the oblong
mass of the Acropolis f512 ft.j with its steep sides.
West the Acropolis is the rocky Areopagus seat of
the famous council. Further west is the ccHill of the
Nymphsn f341.ft.j, on which stands the Observatory.
The old glory of Athens was conquered by
Rome. Later it fell under the influence of Byzantium.
During all these centuries it was gradually robbed
of its works of art. From 1458 to 1833 Athens was
ruled by the Turks. Twice the Venetians attacked the
Turks at Athens, in 1466 and 1687. The Parthenon
was blown up during the latter attack but the
Venetians withdrew a year later. Francesco Morosini's
men broke many of the Parthenon's sculptures which
they intended to take to Venice. Lord'Elgin transfer-
red many of the sculptures to London in 1812.
In 1821 the Greek insurgents attacked the Turks
and occupied the Acropolis in 1822. The Turks took
it again in 1826, till the final liberation of 1833.
SUDA BAY, CRETE
The visit to Suda Bay was of little interest to
most of the crew. A large portion of the Sixth Fleet
was there for replenishment, and due to the limited
facilities ashore for absorbing liberty parties, only
four per cent of the crew of each ship present could
be granted liberty.
Although Suda Bay and Canea were of some
importance during World Wr II, there is little there
of historical interest. Crete was the site of one of the
'great Mediterranean civilizations of ancient times -
the ancient Minoan civilization - which flourished on
Crete from 2000 to 1000 B. C. and was centered
around Heraklion, which was too remote from Suda
Bay for a visit during our brief stay in Crete. Cretan
history of more modern times was a struggle between
the Christian population and the Moslem Turks of
Crete. In 1913 Crete was freed from the Turks and
was incorporated.in the Greek administration.
Only a few miles across the Akrotiri peninsula
from Suda Bay is Canea, the capital city of Crete
and the seat of the Governor General. Canea WHS
built originally by the Venetians in 1252. The old
Venetian city walls and ininarets from the Turkish
occupation dating from 1654 can be seen during 21
tour of the city.
