OF A SHlP"
' In the early light a dockside drama is materializ-
ing. A day of goodbyes, tear-filled eyes and anxiety.
Today we leave!
A long shrill whistle, an ear splitting steam blast
resounds from every bulkhead. The ship drops its
mooring lines from stone pilings and last prepara-
tions are completed. Underway. What's ahead?
Where are we going? These and countless other
questions are answered by one simple code word.
"WESTPAC". The Western Pacific.
The grey sleek hull slides away from the dock,
splashing and tossing a spray around its broad tail.
The grey streamlined hull pitching back and forth
like some angry sea reptile, with its gaping stacks
yawning and smoke rolling forth, in gigantic mon-
And from within, the hatches escrete sounds of
The gears' powerful grinding, the genen
ators' straining whine, and working adjacent the
' lb k rd into
mighty screws propel the sleek hul ac wa
the dark coaxing brine. Then the anxious serpent
't f ntail its bow rises and knife edged pro-
drops 1 s a , ,
pellers jerk violently, spin, and the ship shoots out
' ' ' kl 'n
like a proiectile. The monster slides guic y 1
snake like agility, through the reluctant shoals to the
sea . . . free seal
Then the potential of a nation,
A destructive masterpiece is underway.
The threatening destroyer is energized!
