When the English finally captured it in 1759, they renamed it Fort TICONDE- ROGA. During the Revolutionary War the fort changed from English to American to English possession and remained in their hands until their surrender at nearby Saratoga. The fourth ship to bear its name, the TICONDEROGA was launched February 7, 1944, at the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company, Newport News, Virginia. She joined the Pacific Fleet at a time when her services were sorely needed and participated in the last bitter battles around the Philippines, Formosa, China, Okinawa, Kyushu and Tokyo. Her planes battered enemy airfields, industrial installations, merchant and naval vessels and military forces. In one night, eight of her fighter-pilots took on twenty-eight Kamikazes and downed twenty of them. The TICONDEROGA did not escape these actions unscathed. On January 21, 1945, while operating off the coast of Formosa, two Kamikazes struck her. Tokyo announced her sunk, but her crew saved her. Many made the supreme sacrifice that day, many more were wounded including Captain " Dixie " Kiefer, who was forced to relinquish his command. He later died from the wounds he had received. ' - ' ' -- In 1946, the TICONDEROGA was assigned to the Pacino Reserve Fleet at Puget Sound Navy Yard. She remained in mothballs for eight years. Prior to her re-commissioning on September 11, 1954, at Brooklyn, New York, twenty-one months were spent in reconversion. Among the changes made were the installation of steam-driven catapults, a new deck-edge elevator, an escalator, a streamlined island structure, a strengthened flight deck and new arresting gear. The next year was spent testing, perfecting and showing-off her new equipment. In November 1955, she began a tour of duty with the Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean which lasted nine months, the longest peacetime deployment recorded for an Atlantic Fleet carrier operating with the Sixth Fleet. In late August 1956, she entered the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard where construction of an angled-deck and enclosed hurricane bow began. On March 6, 1957, the TICONDEROGA left the yards after sixth months of modernization, and began preparations for a cruise around Cape Horn to her new home port, Alameda, California. She said goodbye to Norfolk, Virginia, on April 16 5 rounded Cape Horn on May 6, and entered San Francisco Bay on May 30. After spending the month of June in the San Francisco Naval Shipyard, she steamed for San Diego and a period of underway training. The new flight deck was initiated off the California coast on July 17. She returned to Alameda and spent the rest of the summer warming up for a Far Eastern deployment. On September 16, 1957, she left the States and headed for the Orient for the nrst time in eleven years.

Today control of the seas re- mains vitally important both for the protection of our native shores and for the maintenance of the sea lane arteries which are necessary links between America and her allies of the free world. A A If America lost control of the oceans which comprise three-fourths of the earth's surface, she virtually becomes an island, incapable of sustaining her allies separated from her by thousands of miles of open water, or of procur- ing the material necessary for her own defense. Alone, the warships can no longer be considered as an effective first line of defense. The tremendous range, speed and striking power of modern air- craft have eclipsed the value of the man-of-war as the prime firepower weapon for maintaining American supremacy of the seas. Today's naval leaders, re- cognizing the advantages of air power as the most lethal and effective means of reprisal against aggression, have chosen to utilize both the element of mo- bility inherent in ships and the striking power of airplanes. As a result, the aircraft carrier has assumed its present role as the nucleus of any naval strik- ing force. From unknown spots on the vast stretches of the world's oceans, an attack carrier such as the Ticonderoga can swiftly deliver a paralyzing blow any- where on the earth. Like all Americans, our greatest hope is that by our efforts we can contribute to the deterrence of war. But, if ever the moment arises when our country must resort to armed conflict, ships like our own and the crews that man them will be prepared to accomplish their missions for the defense of our families, our homeland, and our civilization.

The ship has had several fine Happy Hours with perform- ers of a dozen different kinds continuing a Navy tradition that in modern times has seemed to falter.

T C. Q 'U W A San Francisco tradition, the Cable Car, begins the steep downhill journey fron Hill. A Mom and Dad group arrived to see their son, who never expected to be taking off across the seas, 5,000 miles from home. Mom was awed by the activity on the pier and aboard ship, and was careful not to become sentimental. Dad was visibly proud, asking questions, giving bits of advice. The son was embarrassed with his new importance in the family sphere. He would never admit being a little scared. The groups of friends and teenagers are the buoyant, laughing ones, seemingly full of spirit. They seem to say, " Sad to see you leave ", and look toward to your return and the future. Music plays its important part in helping to dispurse the growing traces of gloom. The Marine Band, Department of the Pacific, attacks from the pier with their bright uniforms, polish, and music to fill the air. Time becomes short, children go astray, are reclaimed, and are lost again. The last hugs, kisses and whisperings-in-the-ear have taken place. The gangways are hoisted away and 'K Quarters for leaving Port, Flight Deck Parade " is sounded. The crowd along the pier surges back and forth, straining anxious. Cheers and catcalls flow from ship-to-shore, each side seems determined to maintain a good front. Crew and crowd are far enough apart that the tears are not seen, only felt. The band plays louder, faster. The underway signal sounds. We move gently from the pier, slowly edging seaward. The Marine Band strikes up " Anchors Aweigh". It marches the length of the pierhno one seems to be listening anymore. Men watch the shoreline. We pass beneath the Golden Gate. Quarters are secured. Quietly, more serious than usual, the men turn to their jobs and the work at hand. The Bay Bridge is an impressive sight as viewed from the island structure.

This chain of resort islands would have remained just a beautiful, tucked away paradise had it not been for two factors: its productive soil and its protective harbor. The islands provide the world with virtually all of its pineapple and the Western hemisphere with most of its sugar and cocanuts. Pineapples are raised in Hawaii with as much care and atten- l tion, as corn and wheat are in the Statese-and in fields just as i large. Not only on Oahu, but on all the other islands of the chain, " Hawaiian Gold l' is carefully cultivated, making it the big business of Hawaii. The harbor, which is referred to only as " Pearl l' throughout the Naval service has an interesting past. It was once held sacred by the native population and was thought to be in special favor of the gods. Today, it is very much in the favor of the United States Navy. Here is the hub of our Pacihc operations, and surrounding the natural harbor, one of the most comprehen- sive shore establishments of the Navy. It was nearly seventy years ago, and before the annexation of Hawaii, that the Navy was granted the right by King Kalakaua to establish a coaling and repair station in the "Pearl River." In a strategic location on the route to the East, over the years Pearl became a gathering point for the various Pacific commands. Supporting installations of every kind gradually made their ap- pearance. Liberty in the islands was luxury. Honolulu is modern enough to be a Southern California metropolis, but is still rich in native local color. It was comfortable enough to offer the Ticonderoga sailor all the conveniences he wanted and colorful enough so that he could shoot up rolls of film using the native population or the natural topography as subject matter. The visiting sailor played the part of the tourist with admirable success. Lolling at Waikiki, sipping Singapore Slings at the Royal Hawaiian or Surf Rider, or sampling Don the Beachcomber's rum concoctions, he made the most of this paradise isle. For the more adventurous, autumobiles could be rented at moderate prices for an all-day drive around Oahu. The thrill of driving through a sugar cane field in a convertible will long be remembered by some of us. Efforts were made to learn some of the Hawaiian language. Men picked up bits that would add character to their speech when they returned home. " Aloha 'i covered the realm of hello, goodbye and love, while "Whaine,' could mean either a girl or a wife. Some progressed as far as "Hoomalimali", which is applesauce I Life would not be so easy, nor the climate so pleasantly moderate until the trip back, and that was many tedious months away. f- mi 1' Yr, Cupper lefty The Mor- mon Temple from the air.

Quan ai il P We came to Pearl Harbor as part of a 4' peacetime 'l Navy, and we found remnants of another " peace- time " Navy. Here were hulks of ships and bodies of men vvho died unable to defend themselves. But, in a very real sense they did not die in vain. Martydom always serves a purpose, and Without these deaths, which shocked mankind, America might have aroused herself too late from a complacency bred of years spent in virtual isolation and ignorance of the needs of the outside World. We can easily picture the officers and sailors of the Arizona and her sister ships as they performed their routine tasks and relaxed in the balmy sun on December 7, 1941. They were "sleeping in eating brunch, shining inspection shoes and writing letters to their families. These are diversions in which We engage on a similar Sunday morning in a vvorld ostensibly at peace. There is nothing we can say or do novv for those who died at Pearl Harbor. Monuments and poetry cannot restore them to life, but, as We stand at attention before the tomb which was the USS Arizona, let us resolve that this will never happen again. With God's help, may we never turn our backs upon reality or responsibility as did the American people during the years prior to 1941. If the tomb at Pearl Harbor instills this feeling within us, perhaps those who lie within will rest more peacefully. U"""'!

Fuji, offers the tourist the most fascinating combination of sight seeing entertainment and shoping to be found anywhere in the Far East From Kyoto with its array of industrial artistry, to Yokosuka, 1ts alleys bustling with Navy trade to the sophisticated Tokyo, Japan with her variety of endeavors and sights, is an attrac- tion for thousands seeking pleasure and profit.

For the sportsman the streams of the Hakone district around Mt. Fuji for Venerable Fujz as the Japanese sayl offer trout fishing, while the forests there are happy hunting grounds during boar season. Climbing the breathless twelve thousand feet of Mt Fuji IS a thoroughly satisfying if exhausting sport Scaling the mountain has religious significance for the shmtoist who believes it requisite for salvation. Every nations history has been called colorful but the adjective has seldom been used with greater accuracy than when describing ' ,Tapans dramatic past. As in so many ancient civilizations the pre-historical 7 period of Japan is a mixture of legend and mythology. The Sun Goddess Amaterasu assisted by nature- spirits called Kami raised the islands of japan from the sea and in the fashion of the angelic decorators l of Erin embellished them generously with topogrophical virtues. f To these she gave the name Dai Nihon Land of the Rising Sun, and fl designated as emperor her lineal earthly descendant. The native Shinto religion established the Emperors person as sacred and built around that office a maze of ceremonies so intricate that lifting the brows had a meaning, and so harsh that a man would be required to commit hara-kiri for sneezing as the imperial coach passed. The Japanese are an industrious optimistic people. Though custom does not permit them to show l their feelings, they are incorrigibly sen- A timental-literature, radio, television and motion pictures are crowded with 5 hearts-and-flowers stories. They are eagerly 5 1 T friendly, highly sensitive to insult, almost childishly naive, with a frank curiosity that boarders on prying. Courtesy is a national virtue that reaches an art. 1 1 SWL W.

The silver and black lighter glowed brightly as he held it in his hand. " One fifty," said the sailor firmly. He turned the lighter over examining the trade mark. The old man Whined. "No-o-o-o. I make no money. You speak best price, best price." " O. K. Best price, two hundred yen." The old man moaned, drew his breath noisely through his teeth, and began wrapping the lighter. " Dai jobu, dai jobu," he said, smiling as he pocketed the money. The sailor did not see the smile, he was engrossed in the sights, sounds and smells of the gaudiest bazaar since Baghdad, the oriental phenomenon called Yokosuka. Almost invariably the Hrst stop in Yokosuka was the Enlisted Men's Club. The usual plot was to beat the line to exchange " Mickey Mouse money H for yen. A browse through the Ship's Store and a social call to the beer hall were also in order. Sweating the line at the liquor store and a refueling operation at the snack bar or dining room were the usual preparations for the actual attack on Yokosuka. "Souvenir Alley " was the major attraction for Navymen. This was truly an alley of intrigue, drama, comedy and the pantomime of life. Crowned with a lavish neon sign, lined with shops and abounding in street peddlers, the alley offered any- thing-at a price. The prices were in hundreds and thousands of yen, but shrewd and silvery tongued buyers could halve the prices at the expense of time, and the fun of haggling with the merchants. There was silk, fashioned into scarves, kimonos, dresses and shamefully transparent negligees. Embroidered jackets, ablaze with fierce dragons, a snow capped Fuji, pagodas and other scenes, hung from shop walls and were a trap for the eyes. Food markets were open to the eyes and to twitching noses. Fruits and vegetables in low containers squatted beneath a canopy of of meat products suspended from slender rafters. Fish were scaled and gutted, adding an identifiable tang to the sometimes overpowering odor that seems right only in the Orient, an odor that in later years can still be brought to mind by a trinket or the mention of things Oriental. In Yokosuka there were also more serious attractions. Admiral Togo's flagship is now imbedded in concrete and houses a marine museum. Tsukayama and Kinugasa Parks are prominent and colorful places.

Nip Nap Kabuki plays are those in which all parts are played by males-a result of a law which forbade Women to appear on stages from 1629 until the nineteenth century. There are three types of Kabuki plays-Sewa-mono, based upon natural sorrow, loss or paing the Jidai-mono, which are based upon historical legends and the Shosagot0, largely based upon puppet shows, having a slight plot and simple dialogue. The main part of Kabuki is made of descriptive dances and symbolic moye- ments, all cemented together by orchestral music, or a chorus. Almost invariably the first stop was the E.M. Club Where preparations were made for the actual attack on Yokosuka. One of the many modern schools in Japan-an example of the efforts toward improvement of her educational system. 5 The short train trip north from Yokosuka to Kamakura proved an excellent way to view the countryside. The railroad bored through hills with many tunnels and bridged valleys. The rocky slopes were terraced to provide tiny fertile ledges for beans and tomatoes. The flat land was patchquilted with rice paddles and farms so small that each growing plant could have been a pet, named and cared for as an individual. - In rocky slopes were villages clinging to an ancient way of life. From slender poles above the huts paper fish kites waved, proclaiming the number of sons of which the household could boast. Shrines were maintained in little alcoves and in minor caves carved on the faces of cliffs, shrines that honored forebears, shrines where flowers and precious food were placed, accompanied by prayers and pleadings for guidance from a world beyond. School children paraded along the streets in their semi-military uniforms. Jumpers and white blouses were worn by the girls, who followed the boys in the line of march. The boys were dressed in their black suits and caps, brass colored buttons broke the somber hue. Briefcases and knapsacks seemed to be carried by everyone. A center of art, religion and culture is Kamakura. It would require verbal fireworks that trailed golden sparks across the heavens and exploded with pyrotechnic splendor to describe pro- perly the importance of Kamakura to the Japanese. Kamakura became the capital of Japan in 1192 and remained so for 141 years. Protected on three sides by mountains, its only open side is approached from the sea, from Sagami Bay. No longer the capital, Kamakura seats ifself upon religion and refreshment, playing host to as many as 60,000 persons a day during the summer season-people seeking relief from the pressure of daily life, the grinding away of the spirit by the complex life in cities and overcrowded towns. The Kamakura Art Museum, the Daibutsu-65 Buddhist Temples and 19 Shinto Shrines, the fabled beaches of Yuigahama and Shichirigahama-these are the things that draw the Japanese man-in-the-streets to the resort. k h l omenade taking sweets and indulging in idle strolling.

Originally the architecture of japan was based upon Chinese forms, modified by influences of Buddhism, and Shintoism. Progressing with the centuries, the styles remained mostly in wood, the accent on simplicity, regularity and refine- ment. The architecture seldom approaches magnificence-ex cept by lightness and airiness of design, a tribute to architec- tural skill. Evolution of style came with contemporary architecture, after the Meiji Restoration C1868J. Western influences became felt. Today many structures reveal lively modernism due to Amer- ican influence, modified by national and classical characteristics. The Imperial Hotel was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and withstood the fierce earthquake of 1923. Fine examples of art combined with utility are the National Diet Building, National Museum and the Daiichi Sogo-Kan CFirst Mutual Life Insurance Buildingj-all in Tokyo.

A K .., . xg ,,- ug' , .4 J- '. - One of the many shrines in Tokyo, all beautiful, all fascinating. This pagoda was built merely to decorate the garden of a mansion Set apart from other Japanese cities by its cosmopolitan air, Tokyo is a delightful hybrid, hardly oriental and not quite western. The old city, leveled successively by the earthquake of 1923 and the bombs of World War Il, has been rebuilt with amazing speed after each razing. The Ginza, Tokyo's shopping street, would be hardly out of context in any occidental city. Yet, as though the hurry and clatter of the big busy streets were legally banned from it, the maze of alleys leading off the main shopping avenue is quiet, almost secluded. Here the Tokyo lady will be seen in many small smart shops, shopping for her best kimono or carefully selecting a new bowl for her next tea ceremony. The ultimate in seclusion is achieved by the inns found in this district. Built around a tiny garden, the inn, with its hot bath and quiet courtesies, provides a refuge from the crowd. Dominating the Ginza is the mammoth Kabuki-za, the national Japanese theatre and purportedly the largest legitimate theater in the world. To this theater, finished with peaked roofs and carved and laquered facade, the Japanese throng to see the rigidly stylized and elaborately costumed productions of Kabuki, the dance-play. Tales of the samurai, knights of old Japan, provide the sub- jects for most of the Kabuki repertoire. The weather of Tokyo is worthy of comment. The city enjoys or suffers approximately the same tempera- tures and humidities as Washington D. C. Mark Twain's description of the American capital's weather C"If you don't like it, wait a minute."D is no less applicable to that of Tokyo. Tokyo is not a sight-seer's city. Apart from the Imperial Palace, Kabuki theater, Diet building, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Imperial Hotel, there is little to dazzle the eye of the westerner. The charm of the city lies in its ceaseless and contagious vivacity. Offering the best in eastern and western cultures to a demanding idk public, Tokyo is never without dozens of alternatives in entertainment.

During our stay at Subic Bay, many of us journeyed to nearby Manila. Manila offered us the diversified pleasures of a big city and the opportunity to stroll through the history steeped streets viewing the scenes of the terrific house to house fighting that took place in the closing days of World War II. Typical tourists, the crew took in remnants of early Philippine history as well. The old walled city, founded by the Spaniards before 1600, attracted many. The University of Santo Tomas, located within the walls, was founded by missionaries in 1605 and occupies a building constructed in 1601. Tours took the sailor away from the city and into the hills where he could get a good view of one of the best harbors in the world, and one of the most famous spots in American history. The United States gained title to this highly prized archipelago after the Spanish-American War at the turn of the twentieth century. Commodore Dewey's battle of Manila was the turning point of that war. In 1935, the United States formed the Commonwealth of the Philippines, with the promise at that time to later grant the islands their independence. During World War II the islands suffered heavy damage. Reminders of it are evident to this day in the Walled City which is largely unrestored since the bombings. Innumerable half-submerged hulks of ships are visible in the harbor presenting a hazard to navigation. On july 4, 1946, just 17 months after American troops had pounded their way back into Manila, the Philippines were given their independence. A favorite means of sightseeing for the tourist.

At Aberdeen on the Southern side of the island was a village of floating boats where generations live and die, seldom leaving their water-borne homes. In contrast, not for away in the area around Repulse Bay were the homes of those who have become rich in the market place. Hong Kong is a free port and therefore a bargain hunter's paradise. Linens, jewelry, French perfume, and tailor-made clothes are favorite buys and can be purchased for a fraction of their cost in the United States. Hong Kong is an island between two worlds where opposing ideologies, cultures and races live together for mutual financial gain. The new, modern buildings and busy atmosphere of the place seem to express a faith in the future on the part of those who dwell there. However, the endless stream of refugees that continues to pour into the colony from Communist China is a reminder that Hong Kong lies at the edge of a whirlpool which at any time could swallow the island. The citizens of Hong Kong do not forget what lies behind the low range of gently rolling hills which stretch to the east and west thirty miles north of the harbor. However, business continues as usual from day to day, While the great nations of the world struggle for positions of power, Hong Kong, the richest jewel in the British crown, shines with a brilliant lustre in its setting of soft gold. Down in the Wanchai District stands one of thousands of all- alike tenement dwellings. The building is five stories in height with twenty-eight flats on each floor.

This Wonderful balm is a sure cure for cough, cold, headache, Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Gout, Sciatica, Lumbago, sore-throat, toothache, Asthma, Scorpion and other insect bites and stings, cuts, cramps, and all chest complaints. It is still on the market. Tiger Balm Garden, which occupies eight acres, was built at the cost of about HK3B16,000,000. The statues in this garden represent figures of folklore, some of which are Chinese, some are Buddhist. These tales may be ficticious or factual, but the Chinese believe them and put them into textbooks for children. All of the stories represented by these statues contain morals, They either exhort them to do good or caution them not to do evil. As the stories tell, even though the represented sins may not be punished in this life, they will be amended for after death. The founder specially selected these statues in the hope of purifying our sins. Tiger Pagoda is the most famous structure in the garden. It is six stories high and Was built only for decoration. Tiger Balm Gardens, perched on the edge of a mountain overlooking the harbor, depicts animals and spirits from Chinese mytho- logy. Lam J ack Chu One of the Courts of Hell. T T.

From the site of the Atom Bomb Casualty Hospital, Ticonderoga sailors Viewed the scene of previous devastation. Occupying a prominent location in the city of Hiroshima is a modern building dedicated to the principle of peace. Appro- priately the structure has been named Peace Hall. lt is fitting that such a memorial be located in Hiroshima. Along with residents of another Japanese city, Nagasaki, Hiro- shima's people know better than any other persons in the world the horror of modern War. On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was the target of the first ato- mic bomb ever dropped in actual conflict. The city proper within a radius of two miles from " ground zero" was destroy- ed, creating such devastation that the area was long referred to as the "Atomic Desert." Thirteen years after this terrible lesson, sailors from the Ticonderoga visited the scene of " ground zero " and observed the tremendous recovery of the corageous people of this city. While evidence of the destructive force has a almost disappear- ed, the people have not forgotten the terror war brought to their doorsteps. Every year since 1947 the people have held a " Peace Festival " on the anniversary of the fateful blast. Today this Festival is the most important annual event in Hiroshima It is the fervent hope of the people of this city that the world will benefit from the lesson so expensively learned by the Jap- anese at Hiroshima. After touring the city and spending many hours in the Peace Hall, We of the Ticonderoga joined with these resilient people in praying that never again will such destruction be necessary to preserve the liberty of the world.

What's the weather in areas adjacent to us? Dispatches fly from ship to ship, from ship to shore, carrying messages that form fleets, or transfer a single man. OR Division, under the leadership of LTJG Albert Sirois, excels at its teletype machines, unrolling miles of yellow tape, lettered with print that spells out directives and orders, a grandstand seat on the field of action. Another form of OR's communications is the chattering of code, the dit-dah's that drum the ears of the radiomen. Encode, decode, the machines whirr and clack unseen, known only by the results they produce in the Coding Room. Mail Call ! This is when the hands of OR Division reach out to every man on the ship. The Post Office becomes the focal point for all hands. On other days the traffic reverses as mail goes off the ship. OR Division, the voice and ears of the ship, works around the clock.

Signal- men take great pride in their work and strive to be the best in the fleet in visual communications. Visual signaling is a fast and efficient means of communica- tions. Fluttering lines of color that have meaning are the iiaghoists, also used for dress ship functions. For close range: signaling semaphore is used, not only for communications, but for gossip between rival signal gangs on ships close aboad. Tools of the trade are not limited to flags. The men of OS Division also man seven signal searchlights, and two twelve- inch mercury vapor lights which are used for long distance communications or under conditions of poor visibility. There is Nancy gear, an infra-red device that adds security to light signals. " Back to the Bulkhead, eyes to the sea " is a working motto of OS Division. i 4 O5 liuidion fjxk Op miuidion Air Intelligence and the Photo Lab, the two units of OP Divi- sion, work hand in hand processing information needed for the delivery pilot to carry out his mission. Through photo reconnaiss- ance, intelligence data are obtained on the strength and disposi- tion of fleets, aircraft, shore batteries, and terrain of a military nature. Photography records battle action, scientific and historical events, and has unlimited value in training and public relations. The Photo Lab, under the direction of Wo John Burton, boasts a crew trained in photography and processing. Each man can handle all photo jobs and cameras: Speed Grophics, view identifi- cation, 16mm movie or aerial, and the contact and enlarging printers that are their tools. The true value of photography is in answering the "why" of enemy positions or activities. The ship's Air Intelligence Office comes under the direction of LT Kagey. The primary purpose of Air Intelligence is to supply the ship with the information needed to make command decisions. OP DIVISION Front Row AM Odum D A Shipley I L Rowan, H.F. Weyandt, LT L.O.

Aerology is the science of predicting the Weather. At sea in a carrier the weather is essential. The men of OA Division, under the leadership of LTJG Dick Garrett, take Weather observations every day. They send their findings to a large weather information collecting agency called Weather Central, and on the basis of many forecasts received, Weather Central predicts the Weather for large areas. Weather Balloons are released from the flight deck. These balloons take temperatures, pressures and humidities of the air as high as 100,000 feet. The Wind is computed at all altitudes. This information assists aviators in their navigation. Like vveatherrnen everywhere, the Ticonderoga's Aerologists are plagued by tales of their alleged inaccuracy.

So is the carrier plane bound to its ship. Even in the air, fuel is being consumed: the materials of which the craft is constructed are minutely wearing away: the plane trails invisible roots called Need. When the aircraft returns to the ship, the fuel, which is of and from the earth, must be replaced. The aluminum, steel, plastic, rubber and other parts, which are of and from the earth, must be scrutinized and replaced if they are Worn. For the plane to return again to the sky there must be a plan for its launch- ing, its control While in the air, and its landing. To carry put its role as a weapon, the plane must be loaded with rockets, bombs, missiles and projectiles. The aircrafts invisible roots are in the air depart- ment. CDR Darold W. Davis is the Air Oliicer and CDR Hubert Morrison the Assistant Air Officer. V 1 DIVISION' Front Row' I C David CW Wright, L. Barton, J.W. Kutcher, L.M. Sweet, 1.1. Karlich, M.B.

Green jerseys are sport- ed by drivers of starting jeeps and white identifies elevator operators and telephone talkers. Red emphasizes the men of the Repair 8 crash crew, tractor drivers. Flight deck directors and spotters command attention with bright yellow jerseys. The flight deck is modern jazz, in color, as the crews zip about on their duties. They are responsible for the safe movement of aircraft during launch and recovery, spotting and starting of the planes, and maintaining a ready deck for the mailplane, helo, or whatever action may be pending, andpfor the continu- ous spot and respot of different aircraft as missions change, and change again. LT J.C. Wold doubles as Division Officer and Flight Deck Ofiicer. His men on the roof are a laboring and weathered crew, speedsters in their element. The colored jerseys are not the only sign of a V-1 Division man. If a man has a good tan, a tired look and a satisfied smile, he is almost certainly a flight deck crewman.

What goes up, comes down. Pilots bring their planes down the landing mirror glide path, to a quarter acre of planking and ' h' ned b V42 steel decking, across which are evenly spaced arresting Wires. Massive energy absorbing hydraulic mac ines, man y men, bring the airplanes to smooth, controlled stops. If trouble develops, nylon Webbing can be rigged in three minutes, to safety catch a pilot who has no hook, and no land in range. Catapults and arresting gear are the tools and trade of the division.

The shrill blasts of whistles, the classical movements of arms, a male chorus in unified action. Not a bit from a Broadway show, it is a routine led by gold-jerseyed directors and spotters of LT Robert Colvin's V-3 Division who whistle commands to their blue-shirted chorus of plane pushers. The whistle overcomes hangar deck noise, centers attention during crucial moments when the crews delicately nudge air- craft into and out of tight spots, or move swiftly to and from the aircraft elevators. The management of the oversized parking lot of the hangar deck is accomplished by this heads-up division. Their language is one of arm signals, with which they communicate orders- J 4,-pq, FJ" not dimmed by the general confusion of hanger deck activity. Scooting the helpless aircraft across the hanger deck is done with a constant awareness and watchfulness that spells safety with a capital S. Ups-and-downs of the division are limited to the functions of the aircraft elevators. Swiftly, planes are moved to and from the flight deck. V-3's three aircraft elevators are also used to move heavy equipment and ordnance. The amazing agility of the blue-and-gold division is a " Well Done " in itself, earned each time they safely tuck an aircraft into its assigned posion. gzrf-ff ,J Nl! -fx P X f...

Viewed by the men of V-4 Division, the ship is a floating service station. They have 31 gas pumps that dispense the tanks capacity of 302,000 gallons of aviation fuel and 437,000 gallons of JPA5 jet fuel. When the announcing system blares forth, " Now the smoking lamp is out-," it usually brings groans from the crew. The same call is a signal that the gas gangs are at the their labors. All types of aircraft are serviced by the crews--anot just refueled, but also the hazard-eliminating defueling operations and the fast paced " topping off " of aircraft tanks as the planes are readied for action. The natural danger involved in handling thousands of gallons of extremely infiammable fuels is never forgotten by the careful crewmen. Correct procedures are followed at all times. The care of hoses, pumps and the gas stations are all part of the division's workday. Pilots depend upon these men for full tanks of clean fuel-a trust that is met each time an aircraft is serviced by the Gas Gangs. V-4 DIVISION: Front Row, EA. Philips, D.E. Shipman, Gordon, I.C.

Elevators lift loads of death from deep within the ship to loading and assembly spaces on the hangar and flight decks. Skids have a potent appearance when loaded with bombs, rockets, napalm tanks, or guided missiles. Passage is given without hesitation as the boom-and-bust boys move earnestly about their tasks. The nonchalance of gunplumbers and musclemen masks their capabilities. Bombs are trundled about as though they were wheelbarrows of sand, the inherent drama of fusing bombs has an appeal to an audience that keeps its distance. Men move with alley-cat sureness as they assemble rockets and insert igniters in napalm tanks. Possessed with both sureness and nonch- alance, they mind the rules of safety-fire, explosions and horrible destruction are at their fingertips. Science-fiction tricks are performed in the hidaways of the missilemen as they assemble and check their birds for flight. The parade of ordnance includes everything from miniature practice bombs to special weapons, from napalm to pyrotechnics that are used for search and rescue, or less angelic duties. The peacetime work of V15 is to maintain a ready arsenal. In time of War they are the men behind the loud noise of victory. V-5 DIVISION: Front Row 3 W.A. Dean, D.L. Motter, P.E. Targos, T.R.

His parachute was packed and cared for by the Aviation Maintenance Division, LCDR David Lumsden's jack-of-air-trades, VA6 Division. 'Chutes are only one of the division's cares. Safety and survival are the watchwords of the Riggers, who care for life rafts i and Mae Wests also. If an aircraft needs a new wing, or a patch on its fuselage, it is the airdale tinbenders of this division ip who respond-or they can lift or suspend the aircraft on giant jacks, and perform tricks with their hydraulic test stands. j Aircraft radio and radar equipments, fire control systems and navigational aids are kept operating by the AT's in any of the ' four electronic shops-while aircraft instruments are tended by the AE's, who also service aircraft batteries, generators, and snake starting cables across the flight deck. Problems go to the technical library and information rolls out. Other things in this division roll, due to the motor vehicle , shop that hums with the mechanical labor as jeeps, starters and rolling stock is maintained, anything with wheels, including " Tilly " of flight deck fame. The Oxygen Regulator Shop assures that oxygen is available to keep the pilots alive.

The web was spun, loosely tying the ships to- gether. The transfer of personnel by highline, the replenishment of stores, or perhaps refuel- ing-on-the-run was underway. The Second Division, under LTJG Charles Goodale was at work. With a proud knowledge of good seamanship, this division mans refueling and replenishment stations, and the high line. Gun mounts, am- munition magazines, and sound powered tele- dhone circuits are manned for the defense and protection of the ship during General Quarters and Air Defense. In less strained hours, tele- phone circuits and the ship's helm are manned as well as the standing of sentry and side boy duties.

Attack- ing enemies find that they have their noses stuck in a vicious and deadly hornet's nest. The hornet's nest in this case is the ship's secondary battery, the 3" Battery. This gun is designed for defense against today'S jet aircraft and missiles. The 3-incher is called a rapid fire gun, and is rightly so. Each gun is capa- ble of spouting accurate and deadly rounds of am- munition at a rate 45 to 50 rounds per minute. The guns can be operated independently or in unison, a concert of death. Properly manning the mounts, maintenance and repair of the mounts is the prime duty of the 4th Division and of ENS Charles Barnes, the DiviSiOH Officer. The gunners of the 4th are sharp-eyed and Work tirelessly. FOURTH DIVISION: Front ROW, D.E. Weber, W.A. Epling, L.G. Bright, W.H. Raynard, ENS C.W. Barnes, IW. Dwyer, ,IA Wallace, J.R. Paradis, R.G.

The largest guns on the ship, they comprise the main battery as the sec- ondary active defense against enemy aircraft or ships. Their job is to shoot down any Bogies that might break through the aircraft defense net. The 5th Division, under the direction of LTJG Howard Mul- holland, is divided into two parts, the forward battery and the after battery. Magazines and hoists are also a division main- tenance duty. Each man in the division has an equally integral part in making the division one of the best aboard ship. The gunners of 5th Division have a pet peeve, over whiCh they are inclined to become quite verbal. The peeve is againS'C airplanes spotted over their tubs. Their unofficial motto is re- ported to be, " If you can't shoot 'em, swat 'em." f"'s o'l, Q 'Q' I 1 :,'. I 5 ' SIXTH DIVISION: Front Row, IE. Raines, CWO D. Winniger, ENS R.H.

Sec- urity weapons, landing force equipment and weapons, and in- cidental gunnery equipment are all stowed here. ENS Rufus Gordon, the Division Officer, wades through his paper battle aided by the division's yeomen. Reports, inventories, and the shuttling of ordnance to proper places keeps the force busy. Armory personnel have the necessary equipment at their dis- posal to make repairs to all small arms. Small arm are inter- esting to work with, but the division's major job is that of care- taker to the ship's gun ammunition and aviation ordnance. Magazines throughout the ship reflect the pride of the men of the division. The spaces are outstanding in cleanliness, stowage, and preservation. Daily checks are made to insure that the powder is kept dry, powder samples are observed for signs of of deterioration, and magazine temperatures are recorded. -X.-"P Q-., Y wx 4 F H 6 . 0: 0' R W! a""f,"'t 0 fWpF y I L U Fire control has no bearing on the control of fires -it is designed to blast enemy aircraft from the skys . and to render enemy ships into twisted, sinking hulks.

LTJG Carter Terrell is head man of the formidable X L array of rated talent known as Fox Division. That 0 so many of the division's men are rated is an indic- ation of the versatility and extensive training that is n part of the rating of Fire Control Technicians. The division is responsible for the gun control equipment, directors, radars and designated gear. It covers the fields of electronics and optics, and has heavy emphasis on electrical and hydraulic systems and their components. The division extends its technical hand to Aero- logy, by tracking weather balloons with fire control radar. This trick obtains information on present and predicted wind data for use in aircraft and gunnery exercises. I Fox Division personnel have outstanding technical proficiency and train extensively.

Upon completion of the new training, they are again assigned to a ship. The ratings in the division range from YN to BM, and from AO to AT. No records have been set or broken by the whis- pering ones. No errors or mistakes are permitted in their labors, and at all times they must have the highest degree of profici- ency.

Hot and dirty hours were spent in the first boiler rooms supply- ing coal. In those days castaways were given jobs in the boiler rooms. Today, trained personnel operate and maintain the boilers at the high degree of efficiency that is required. B Division, with LTJG Nathan Henderson and Ensign Charles Billings as Division Oiiicers, is the largest division aboard ship. It is the heart of the Engineering Department. The eight boil- ers generate steam at 600psi, 850 degrees superheat, and supply electrical power to the ship. Four evaporators, the only source of fresh water at sea, feed the boilers. The Oil King has charge of feeding the 90,000 gallons of fuel oil and 110,000 gallons of water used on a nor- mal steaming day to the boilers, and must keep an equal dis- tribution of liquids throughout the ship to maintain an even keel. BT's maintain machinery and repair and operate the boilers in temperatures often above 110 degrees. B Division keeps the ship on the go and really has a lot of steam. ff' BDIVISION: Front Row, G. I.

The screws, four bladed and fifteen feet in diameter, each weigh several tons. Tremend- ous power is required to move the ship, to turn the screws. M Division has that power. They operate the four main engines that provide the thrust that streaks the seas with a glowing wake. Not only the engines, but the ship's service generator prime movers and the related equipment, condensers pumps and motors are operated by the powerhouse Machinist Mates. The three bladed propeller, Machinist Mate emblem, is the badge of M Division. The division is a one rate society-only MM's and their strikers hover about the equipment to operate, to maintain or to repair it. LTIG Joseph Tremble and Ensign John Songster are the Division Officers. A Machinist Mate, the throttleman, is the human link bet- ween the engine order telegraph and the surging power behind the throttle. He is the interpreter of the galaxy of gauges that reports in expose fashion the inside story of the engines. The ship would be dead, unable to fulfill her mission if she could not move. M Division is the assurance that the ship can and does move, smartly, and as ordered. M. DIVISION: Front Row, WJ. Miller, K.D. Hutchinson, N.W. Lafoy, ENS J.H. Songster LTIG IH. Tremble, CHMACH HJ.

Damage Control Assistant, LCDR Jack West, provides supervision and guidance. The Division Otiicer is LTJG Harry Krueckeberg. Four shops divide the divisional workload: Metal Shop, Pipe Shop, CO2 Shop and the Carpenter Shop. Each lays claim to producing the most work, the claim remains unsettled. Tin bending covers an extensive fieldewelding, brazing, re- pair and fabrication. Installation of various shapes and forms of metal throughout the ship wears shoes and tempers thin. It is not uncommon to see tin knockers burning the midnight oil while finishing a " hot" job. Water wells they have not, but the miles of piping, plumbing, and tubing that supply water throughout the ship are in their domain. Pipefitters insure that water is delivered properly and without delay. The pipe gang keeps almost everyone happy! the laundry gets washed, the cooks prepare chow, and the corpsmen have sterile instruments. Repair Lockers and emergency equipment, maintaining doors and hatches watertight, cleaning ventilating systems are all fun- ctions of the CO2 Shop, which also handles CO2 fire extinguishers. Making cruise boxes, or even picture frames, are the calls made upon the division's smallest shop, the Carpenter Shop. Small in size, it is huge in experience and ingenuity.

During the course of an aircraft carrier's deployment in West- Pac, the amount of goods consumed is huge. In planning how much of any one item is to be stocked, the space available is carefully considered while at the same time the danger of running short must be precluded. Lt. Oscar Tucker's thirty SK's with the help of the BuSandA Manual and Navy Standard Stock Catalog endeavor to satisfy the insatiable needs of all the ship's depart- ments. Memo pads and pencils, deck treading and paint, nuts and bolts, tools and toilet paper-all must be stowed, inventoried, issued and reordered again in a never-ending cycle. While SI provides for the needs of the ship, it is also charged with the responsibility of furnishing spare parts for the aircraft of the different squadrons, The overseeing of aviation stores is a heavy responsibility which directly affects the ship's mission. Lt Ralph Woodward and the AK's of SI-A retain in their store- rooms about 25,000 different individual items valued at over 33,000,000 and ranging in size from tiny registers to huge I-71 jet engines. Even a small mistake in ordering might ground an air- craft awaiting a part for weeks. Ship's stores and aviation stores keep us in business. Without their help we could not work effectively for even a short time. 97 f '5 XXXA1 xx , ,N A l 5 , , X 9581-v,n X 0 X ' gy 5 x P x M f i QQ if n x 5 I I XE X' L.

It took a bay city crane, a 200 hand working party, fork lifts, a 40 gallon mixing machine, a potato peeler that peels 100 pounds of spuds in three minutes, and over 200 sailors, to present the succulent selection. Drop by the Bake Shop at night, witness the three man night crew as they bake the daily 694 loaves of bread, or mix the 2,150 rolls consumed at a single morning's breakfast. A peek in the Butcher Shop, where an interesting machine produces 2,100 hamburger patties an hour. On a meat block, a butcher might be boning out the 104 hams required for a Virginia Baked Ham Dinner. Soup? Eighty-gallon steam-jacketed kettles, one in each galley, are nearly full-to accomodate the slurpers meals. On a row of grills, almost 4,650 eggs are prepared for breakfast. In the Vegetable Preparation Room, better known as the " spud locker," 2000 pounds of spuds are peeled and eyed each day. Hundreds of pounds of vegetables and fruits are prepared, to end on the line or on the salad bar. On the Mess Decks, or in any of the mentioned spaces, the ever present messcooks perform endless tasks, from scrubbing pots and pans to the filling of salt shakers, manning the hot and hurried scullery or trundling stores as part of the breakout crew. The Mess Deck MAA's supervise approximately 115 messcooks. The Commissary Officer, WO Edward McGroarty, commands the very busy men of S-2 Division. S 2 DIVISION Front Row C L Mann SR Gabbert, H.E.

While our brothers on the home front buy perfume at exhorbitant prices, We pay one-third as much in the ship's store. Laundry prices are higher than ever, and inexpensive tailoring is impossible to find, but S-3 does both for nothing. Barber shops, stores, laundry, tailor shop, Cobbler shop and soda fountain-all are maintained by S-3 Division under the management of LTIG Bob McGoldrick.

The payroll of the Ticonderoga is equal to that of a good-sized factory. Every two weeks many thousands of dollars are doled out in wages to shop and air group personnel. Cash is an explosive commodity with Which to deal and the responsibility of handling so much of it is grave. A miscount on the pay line or a mistake in addition may mean a considerable loss. Ens. Al Mundt and the DK's of S-4 Division handle the pay records of everyone aboard ship.

While at sea they pass their few idle moments in its coffee lounge, din- ing room, or when TV reception is possible, in the TV lounge. In port, the Wardroom serves as a center in which to entertain families and friends who are visiting aboard ship. The Wardroom, one of the ship's largest spaces, and officers'- staterooms are cared for by the Stewards of S-5 Division. Ste- wards are adept at many varied tasks, and all are dependent upon each other. Some of the jobs involved in meal preparation are the drawing of foods from the storerooms, the actual prepar- ation by galley stewards, the addition of finishing touches and the issue of food by pantry stewards-while the service is the duty of the Wardroom stewards. Scullery stewards are charged with the cleanliness and stowage of the ship's silver and china. Room stewards maintain the staterooms and keep Officers Country in spotless perfection. Service is paramount, but gives way when the stewards man their battle stations or quickly respond to gen- eral drills and ship's exercises. Ensign Richard Milner is the Division Officer. Complaints and praise from his fellow officers keep him jumping to insure top performance from a division that has behind the scenes import- ance. VIP's are able to pass judgement upon the ship according to the manner in which they are cared for by the Stewards. The importance of the Stewards reflects throughout the ship- their job, well done, affects the ship's officers, and spreads a tide to the entire ship's company. S-5 DIVISION: Front, Rowg I.

Such is the boast of our ship, and of Commander Harry Nordstrom, the ship's Medical Officer. The doctors and hospitalmen are antiseptically competent in the medico-maze of H Division's spaces. There is the comforting familiarity of the examining and treatment rooms of Sick Bay, the precise dispensation of pills and potions by the Pharmacy. There is the sweating wait of results by the Clinical Labratory, sometimes the overature to the Ward, or a cutting session in the Operating Room. Preventative medicine, over 10,000 shots, spurs good health-is followed by doses of Hrst aid and self aid, lessons from battles with death and disease. Setting traps against sickness, scrutinizing the ship's water supply, food service and sanitary facilities, close liason with sanitation officials in ports of call are medical routine. Caring for 3,000 men is no small job, added to it is consultation services for destroyers that act as plane guards, and emergency aid to ships of the Heet when they require it. The division, under the command of LTJG Robert Keesee, must also be ready to aid in disasters ashore, when nature goes on a rampage against humanity. w if - S , -- wwww ,, fi 'A,., if-bi' XTI I iqq X --rx ' 1 ln ' , Q-it 2 ? ,l 7 if "Hrv- . u.

Commander Charles Bill is the head of the Dental Departmentg he is aided by LT Peter Jensen and LT Donnel Marlin, Assisstant Dental Officers. These three ofiicers are qualified dentists and they do the actual chair work: the drilling, filling. extractions and bridgework' They are assisted by technicians who are qualified to take X-Rays, clean and polish teeth, mix fillings and render emergency dental care. In addition to restoring teeth to good health, D Division maintains an exellent prosthetics laboratory. Dental technicians are also trained in first aid. During General Quarters they act as hospital corpsmen. The mission of the Dental Department is to ma' t ' th d in ain e ental health of the Ticonderoga and supervise dental hygiene aboard ship.

The mission of the Air Group is the mission of the ship, and during hostilities the efforts of the 3,000 men aboard this carrier can come to final fruition only if the aircraft are successfully launched from the Hight deck and reach their targets for the delivery of their loads of fiery des- truction. Each of the squadrons which comprise Carrier Air Group Nine has a specific and vital mission. The squadrons perform as integral units, but their efforts are coordinated and super- vised by the Carrier Air Group Commander, CDR Louis L. Bangs. His is a heavy responsibility. The equipment under his cognizance represents an investment totaling many millions of dollars, and since flying planes from a carrier deck is, to say the least, a dangerous enterprise, the risk of calamity is constant. Unknown and unforeseen circumstances may ne- gate even the most painstaking safety precautions of both those who maintain and those who fly the aircraft. The present Carrier Air Group Nine has been organized specifically for a single cruise to WestPac. When the ship re- turns to San Francisco, the squadrons separate to train for future deployments with other air groups on different ships. For a fevv brief months the ship's crew and air group per- sonnel have worked together for mutual success with the real- ization that each is an indespensable part of a joint effort. Those in the ship's company knovv that the ship Without its air group is a Warrior Without a weapon. . . ---- ,. , , A M., . ,. ,-.,,.g.1,,.,.5g-.g.-.-l-.-V-.3tg.j-gr:.:.f-.fr:1--A "H t , Z 1-bt '-. . 3 5.- - r - V - - -- as .

This aircraft makes its operational debut in the Pacific with VA 93 on the Ticonderoga. The performance of the plane and of the aviators who fly it are a tribute both to the Douglas Aircraft Corporation and to VA 93 itself where team spirit and squadron loyalty are exemplary. The A4D can carry special weapons and, due to its diminutive size, is very difficult to detect on a radar scope. It used on short range bombing missions. The pilots of Attack Squadron 93 have proven their outstanding ability by gathering an impressive number of individual awards for bombing proficiency. Commander Paul Padget who heads VA 93 has good reason to be proud of his squadron. -L... . h E , L,H, D tsch, I.G. McCombs, W.G. Little, R.O. Frazi- VA'93: Front ROW: LD. Parentoyggv.

Stack, is a day and night carrier-qualified Squadron. The primary mission of the unit, in this age of nuclear war- fare, is to be capable of delivering an atomic weapon upon an enemy. To enhance this capability, the " Sky Knights " continually practice Speci- al Weapons delivery, methods and fly long, low-level flights. However, con- ventional vvarfare is not ignored. Many hours are spent in polishing the techniques of dive-bombing, rock- etry, and strafing for the close air support of troops. VA 95 flys AD-7 Skyraiders, the latest and final version of the Navy's propeller driven attack aircraft. It is capable of carrying more bombs than a World War Il B-17, and flights of over 1500 miles are not uncommon. With the men and aircraft, day or night, atomic or conventional, the " Sky Knights" are ready. VA-95: Front Row, OJ. Taylor, N.R. Iiams, H.H. Paul, j.A. Fowlkes, W.C. West, T.B. Fosdick, E.F.

The pilots are trained to launch the aircraft from the deck, climb to al- titude and under the control of the ship's air controllers, intercept and destroy high or low flying attackers. The squadron's pilots are qualified in air to air gunnery. VF-122i: Front Rowg C.S. Schaffer, LTIG A.L Meader LT LE Ames LCDR WP Mulholland CDR CE Mulligan LCDR I.W. Sullivan, LT P.L.

VAH TWO DET M The men of HEAVY ATTACK SQUADRON DETACHMENT MIKE fly the largest carrier based jet bomber in the World. The Douglas A3D " Sky Warrior" Weighs over thirty tons and is a long range attack bomber capable of flying at extremely high altitudes. Although the Sky vvarrior's Weight and size make it seem like an airborne locomotive as it touches the flight deck in landing, it is undeniably the sleekest aircraft aboard ship. The long range capabilities and bomb carrying capacity of the Douglas giant give it and those who fly it a vital role, for the ASD can penetrate deep into the enemy's homeland to destroy even his most inaccessible industrial centers. Commander Thomas Hine's pilots and crews are Well trained. Anyone who has watched them land their planes on the Ti's flight deck realizes the skill and precision necessary for such a feat. The golden-helmeted warriors of VAH 2, Detachment Mike deserve and indeed have the admiration and respect of every- one in the Ticonderoga's crew. K A ,ff W K N 1 V i i ill - f-'Ill' xx ll na' 2 , J 0 , 4' O0 jf pi 47 'U.f4'l!U - il The AD-5W is a flying watchdog. The "Guppy" is by no means a sleek airplane with its bulging underbelly and squat shape. This plane extends the ship's radar search area over a space of many hundreds of square miles. The radar equipment stowed in the protruding bulge beneath the fuselage is extremely powerful and reliable and can make contact with an enemy either above or on the surface of the ocean. Once contact is made, fighter pilots in other planes are guided to the enemy from the " Guppy The long and tedious hours spent aloft by the men of VAW-11 help to ensure the safety of the ship from suprise attack. In wartime the lives of all tl1e crew would depend in great part upon the watchful human and electronic eyes of LCDR Novak's airborne sentries. ff? 'G '-9 1.1 J-J Q ' f f ,VV .E. Penfield, J.W.

The text in this book was set entirely by handg the color plates were made by a first rate engraver, who is also one of .lapan's top artistsg and glass, wet plates were used instead of film for all photographs. ln the upper right-hand corner of this page is an aerial view of the main Tokyo plant of Dai Nippon Printing Company where ALERT was printed. Having printed many cruise books before ALERT, Dai Nippon has ample experience in this line. .lapan's largest printing concern has, in addition to three other plants in Tokyo, plants in Osaka and Kyoto. The remaining pictures on this page endeavor to show the various steps necessary to the printing of this book. Immediately to the right is pictured the binding process. All of these steps have been combined to bring you a book we hope you will enjoy for many years. The Editors CAb0veD Photo r6f0L1Chil'1g CAbovej Top engravor working for the book.

In spite of the multitude of variations which make us different from one another as individuals, we share, in common, a significant experience-we have worked and sailed and lived together aboard a mighty ship which long before our advent as crew members was already honored by other men why fought and died on her steel decks and in her planes to preserve a way of life for us and our children. As we near the end of this cruise, it is very natural for us to ask ourselves, " What have we gained by being here P " Certainly our memories of these past seven months are not entirely happy ones, but, few human endeavors produce complete satisfaction. Indeed, we have visited strange and interesting lands which we would otherwise never have the opportunity of seeing, and we will not quickly forget either the shipmates who have been our friends or the pleasant experiences shared with them. On the other hand, we have witnessed moments of tragedy and sorrow. We have known days filled with discouragementg we have sometimes inwardly rebelled against the discipline which is so necessary in a military organizationg we have watched millions of dollars spent each day to maintain us and the things we have doneg we have foregone pleasures and everyday comforts which a warship at sea is incapable of providing and which we could have enjoyed had we stayed ashore. But, whatever our judgement may be concerning our personal reward or loss during these months, let us pause here for a moment and remember that what we have gained or lost personally is not really important because it is only incidental to our purpose for being aboard this ship and sailing to that part of the world which the Navy in its own peculiar terminology calls "West Pac ". For long weeks, unseen by the eyes of the world, we have practiced the art of modern war. As an ALERT carrier of the United States Seventh Fleet, we might have, at any moment, launched our aircrafts on their mission of destruction. However, our wish is not to destroy, and, in fact, knowing the terrible power which we posses, we pray that we will never be called upon to unleash our weapons. If our show of strength has discouraged a potential aggressive nation, we have performed the part for which we were intended although our training may never have been utilized in combat. If by our efforts, the threat of war has been lessened even a little then we should ask for no greater reward that the satisfaction of having fulfilled our purpose. With this thought in mind we return to San Francisco and our homes which lie beyond. California, open your Golden Gate.
