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. 1 .S 11 f- -Q N- wig 5, 'gi wg. -4 I fs!

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 lla 1 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 the toll of enemy ea was muc 1 g . I - 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. s an s y O F 'da A ril 13, 1945, the commissioning crew was mustered for the first time at the Naval n ri y, p Operating Base, Norfolk, Virginia where they received extensive pre-commissioning training. The crew went ' ' ' Y d d the next da the com- 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 tel' 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 f 11 d b o erations up and down the Atlantic seaboard and as far south as Trinidad, British West Indies. . . . .I b- o owe y p h' t'ci ated in the huge New York Navy Day celebration of 1945. The crew received their anti su The s ip par 1 p 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 arriving in Norfolk, 11 March 1948,. Exercises were then held on the eastern seaboard with stops at New York and Boston. The Mediterranean cruise of 1949 included visits to Greece, Italy, France, Monaco, and Algeria. During this year she crossed the Arctic Circle on the 12th of November. The third Mediterranean cruise was made during 1950 and included visits to the principal European l d I l Sicil and also Trieste F T T countries: England, France, Germany, Holland, Ire an , ta y, y s , . . . The countries visited during the 1951 Mediterranean cruise were Algeria, Sicily, Italy, Greece, I.. b d France During the summer of 1951 the Steinaker participated in a Midshipman cruise Turkey, e anon, an . , and visited New York City, Colon, Panama, and Guantanamo, Cuba. In October and November the Steinaker participated in Lant Flex 52. i v The Steinaker has made numerous excursions that covered most of the Atlantic between the Arctic C' 1 d Trinidad, B.W.I. Previous to the present cruise, she has anchored in 62 different ports, gn 23 . . . . t irc e an different countries and four continents, and has been within one mile of the shores of a fifth continent, ou America. The fifth Mediterranean cruise, and the last scheduled cruise before conversion to a DDR, is the subject of this cruise book. The first commanding officer of the Steinaker was Commander S. A. McCornock, who was in com- mand until August 1947. Commander W. J. Dimitrijevic until July 1949, when Commander J. H. Raymer became uskippern. In November 1950, Commander W. A. Hunt, Jr. became top man until our present Captain, Commander A. B. Register, relieved him in November 1951. W ft ' N ' i 1 " 459 .EL x-me xsgmwz.

' 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 ' ' ' ' ' ' ships in independent operations and 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 blue-jackets who still have the traditional urge to ,,join the Navy and sec portunity for American naval personnel to create good will and better whom they come in eontaetm The post war inactivation of a sizeable part of the second to a small Fleet assigned to the Mediterranean Sea.

The DAYTON was to be followed b the ' neFnA ee ags lp to go to Sea an Ollcraw wlt t e ee y cruisers RGO, PORTSMOUTH, ROCHES1 ER, ALBANY, DES MOINES, NEWPORT NEWS and SALEM.

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.

GRAN 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 African Coast. 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 possession. Oran is the chief port of Western Algeria, the capital of the departments and military division of LIB 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. It won't be long now before the dull and routine life aboard ship will be traded for rich experiences ashore. Yes, its liberty for all hands soon. ccNow all the liberty party lay up to the quarter- deck for inspections: THAT'S IT!! Liberty call 11 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 first foreign port, and for others, it's just a renewal u the same name fteehnically one of the three ments in the French lic-public in Algeriul. Uran 18 the head of the Gulf of Uran, 261 miles by rail South-' west of Algiers, 220 miles east of Gibraltar and 130 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. At night we were introduced to some strange new fto us but actually thousands of years oldl dishes such as cccous-cousn and ccshiskebabn. The restaurants and clubs that we want to remember are Cafe de Paris., Crillon, and the Windsor. ERTY of good times had before in the same port or others like it. For every man in the fleet, liberty means some- thing different. To some, it is a chance to capture, through photography, the spots which we read about as a child. To some men, it means a quiet day aSll0l'0-i walking around and enjoying the crowds of a city and the feel of the land. To many others, it is a chance for a good meal at some little spot, almost lost to other sailors. Of course, some men go ashore to forget about things which have grown out of proportion T30 reality.

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 PALERMO, SICILY 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- mcians, Greeks, Romans, Goths, Saracens, Normans, French, and' Spaniards who have ruled there all in turn, left their distinctive marks on the old city.

A large number of the places visited during the tours are known the world over.

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 anybodyw. ' ",1. 1. H-.,. . f YMWA ,, ,,, , , ., .f - V 1 A n i x i 7 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 Please" .... cried a voice over the microphone. MWe would like to commence the evening's entertainmentw. TRIESTE, '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 went over exceedingly well due to her talent as comedienne, excellent voice notwithstanding. The Master of Ceremonies, a talented guitarist, seemed to have his slightly tipsy audience perfectly control. Then there came the "sharp-shooter", had an amazing eye and could perform miracles a 22 caliber rifle flnfantry materialj. Last but least, the specialty dancer faffectionate little The young lady had a marked effect on Mr. and Mr. Sterner fship's loversj. Amid frenzied removing, handkerchief swipes and speedy in futile attempt to evade the caressing arms of swivel hipped dancer, the two gentlemen decided signs of embarrassment. While on the of talent, credit is due to our own ,I im Cerda Q referred to as Mhiingersi' due to his dexterity 0 ivoriesj, a very fine pianist, for his well-played tuna added much to the evening's entertainment. 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 extend our sincere thanks and a "WELL DONE" to the members of the Welfare and Recreation Com-' mittee for their fine job and hard work in arranging our ship's parties.

From then till 1918, except for two very short periods, Trieste remained a part of Austrian Empire. Numerous German immigrants during this period came close to Germanizing the city, homever, the Italian character of the city survived and remains to this day. In 1919, as a result of the Treaty of San Germain, the city was aquired by Italy, with the Italian Armistice of 1943, the Germans moved into control with plans of incorporating it into the Greater Reich So it was in the closing days of April 1945, that Marshall Tito's 9th corps advanced against the Ger- mans and forced their entry into the 't d ci y, an two days later, on May 1, 1945 and the 2nd New Zealand Division landed at Trieste to accept the surrender of the Germans who were still holding out because they refused to surrender to the Yugoslavs. Trieste has b su sequently been held by a mixed force of British, American and Yugoslav Troops.

V. L 4 K Q VENICE ITALY 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 CGRTINA ITALY 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 A 1"i x . i I ,J ,Y . A .41 .QV ,F aft. ! '..A. fm ,Q um I 's :L-.NK -Mix g7,g"'f' hh Q L 1 ,.

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.

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 or two. 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.

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 passed. 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.

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 attached. 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 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 to Spezia on the East. It is divided into the Riviera di Ponente fccthe coast of the setting sunnj and the 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. Vegetation, because of this temperature, is sub- No matter how small the job may seem, every is important. When steaming in fog or during of reduced 'visibility it is the radar men at sco es who advise the bridge of dangers that are he I p . not visible.

The voice radios search radars give the radarmen on watch the name of uThe eyes and ears of the ship". . V 'GMail Callnl One of the most welcome words to be passed on the STEINAKER.

Bordighera is unique for date-palms - one of the few places in Europe these can grow. The coast has incredible beauty, attracting invalids and tourists from the world. Lord Byron, Shelley and Dickens lived and wrote on the Riviera at some time their lives. ' x .1 5 5 1 V -f Xwiif W I ffl? t yy, ,. - - Iv J wf.1,p ie Q ' A 1:37 Yu? ,I Xi!

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' at inspections. 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. BOILERMAN QBTJ 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 and fighting. 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 Damage Controlmen. 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. :.l.WILlT.

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. PARIS TOUR 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 time. 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.

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. X TCRPEDO GANG 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- son of the gang is Tom Crogan who relishes loading and unloading depth charges. . . Next probable mayor of Limestone, Tennessee - if he can keep awake - is Louis ccTennesseen Bitner. FIRE CGNTROLMEN e ' 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 fhis name always spoken in whispers, who has a natural affinity for always showing up as soon as the entire working force has assembled around the coffee pot. . . George O'Neill, top whip cracker, still dreams of doing his twenty traveling week-ends between Norfolk and Maryland. . . Strictly a liberty hound of the first water, Ernie Calvert, has out one desire out of his navy life - Shore duty in Virginia Beach. . . Then there is ccMetroD or ccCecil Bm Hutchison who labors under the impression that he is in the Con- federate Navy. His dreams are of being a motion picture producer. . . c4Stronksv Milburn, who has spent most of his cruise in his sack, is counting the hours until he gets back to Baltimore and Doris. . . We come now to the strikers. Those poor downtrodden people who have to bear the brunt of everything. They are numerous in number but you wouldn't think so if there was a working party in the offing. There is McFerron who wants to get home to his wife and go to school in Washington. . . There are others who want to go home to their women too.. . Madenfort, who has been engaged for about twenty years, is going to get married when the cruise is finished. . . Bowden is carrying on a romance by mail to some little thing back home in Maine that is killing the postman. .. ccDickyn Davenport has hung his flames portrait in ccplotn and spends most of his time look- ing over the rim of his coffee cup at it. . . The steady- ing influence of the gang is cclrvn Barbyg the guy everyone would like to be like, but can't ind out how he got that way. . . ccKirbyn Kerstetter, who is our budding author, is writing a novel expected to end all novels. . . ccGeorgieD Dowden, our Fire Control Yeoman puts it this way, aYawnn! Last but by far not the quietest is W.T. KG-riffn Griffin, condemmer of all the third class petty officers. f- se I 1 1. ,.4, V' 851' '?9.'9 T'1 'If 1 1 'v- U N L ZZ fn- t C 23 G X W -me-H 1 X 1 ' ! 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 GREECE 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 H El -.

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 grade. W 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 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 summaries. v 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 v Ll., I f' f Y ff 1 1 S- vu .-1.e:- - 'f."'.fAi I I-s I-Mir .

Mi I ISTANBUL Cconej 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 Sophia. 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 from 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 around Constantinople. 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' field. 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.

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. FIREMAN frm 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 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. METALSMITHS 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 tools I I l .

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 thirty thousand. 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 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 civilisation. 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 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. if QL' QB t9 v 1 .: 15 ,I pf 'LII W , 0,4 Sw f 5, .,.
