ATTHESHIPYARD, WHITSON AND WEASMA WERE SPENDING THEIR DAYS RUNNING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE SHIP, VARIOUS SHOPS , AND OUR TEMPO- RARY HEADQUARTERS OF CHIEF TROUT. ATTENDING VARIOUS SCHOOLS IN SAN DIEGO. THINGS SEEMED PRETTY WELL ORGANIZED UNTIL THE ENTIRE CREW AS- SEMBLED IN BREMERTON AND MOVED A- BOARD, ALL HANDS SPENT BUSY DAYS TRYING TO RUN DOWN MISSING ITEMS AND TYING UP LOOSE ENDS IN PREPARATION FOR OUR PRELIMINARY ACCEPTANCE AND BUILDINGS TRIALS , W ITH GREAT EMPHASIS BEING PLACED UPON NAVIGATION . THE FIRST COUPLE OF DAYS IN PUGET SOUND WERE QUITE TRYING AND INCLUDED AN " O ' ROARK " CALLING CONTEST IN WHICH NOONE VOLUNTEERED , BUT MANY CONTESTANTS WERE ENTERED. IT LOOKS LIKE GREEN WAS THE WINNER HANDS DOWN, IT WAS ABOUT TH I S T I M E THAT WE LOST FRIEDENSTAB FOR A SHORT STINT IN THE HOSPI- TABLE. HE DIDN ' T DO SO BADLY FOR HIMSELF, THOUGH WINNING 800 DOLLARS IN A PU2ZEL CONTEST, THfc. CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS WERE UNEVENTFUL , AND TH E SUCC EEDING DAYS WERE FILLED WITH PREPARA- TION FOR SAN DIEGO AND OUR SHAKEDOWN CRUISE, THE MOST EXCITING AND OUR SHAKEDOWN TRAINING CRUISE. THE MOST EXCITING EVOLUTION IN SAN DIEGO WAS THE UNANNOUNCED MERCY TRIP SOUTH WHICH LEFT A FEW OF US ON THE BEACH WITHOUT TOOTHBRUSH OR RAZOR, IT WAS A HECTIC TWO DAYS WITH THE FIRST DAY BEINGSPENTTRYING TO GET THEM OUT, I THINK THE SCHOOL STAFF WAS MORE CONFUSED THAN WE WERE, IT WILL PROBABLY BE THE ONLY TIME THAT OUR ASSISTANT DIVISION OFFICER, MR. RUSH , WILL EVER BE ABLE TO MUSTER IN WALKING SHORTS WITH A GOLF CART , AFTER IT V AS OVER WE WERE ALL CONVINCED THAT LIFE ABOARD SHIP THOSE TWO DAYS WOULDN ' T HAVE BEEN TOO BAD. ON THE 14 OF FEBRUARY WE WERE UNDERWAY FOR OUR SHAKEDOWN CRUISE MINUS FRIEDENSTAB WHOM WE HAD TO LEAVE BEHIND, WE WELCOMED ABOARD CHIEF THURBER UPON OUR ARRIVAL IN PEARL, THUS INCREASING OUR NUMBER TO 22. THAT IT REALLY WAS A SHAKEDOWN WAS BEYOND DOUBT WHEN WE STARTED TO GET UNDERWAY POR LOCAL OPERATIONS IN PEARL. THE SHAKING WAS MOST APPARENT IN THE AFTER END OF THE SHIP. SOME OF US WERE A LITTLE DISSOLUSIONED TRYING TO SEE THE SOUTH PACIFIC FROM THE BOTTOM OF DRY-DOCK . BUT WE MADE UP FOR IT BY ATTENDING POLLYWOG OR SHELL BACK MEETINGS. POLLYWOG DAY WAS A BIG SUCCESS AS MOST SHELLBACKS WERE SOUNDLY DRENCHED BY THE FIREHOSES. INTIATION DAY SAW THE RADAR GANG REPRESENTED BY SEVERAL " SPECIAL CASES. " PROMINENT AMONG WHO WAS OUR CIC OFFICER, MR, ESTOCK, WHO HAD BEEN CITED FOR LEADING A POLLYWOG RE- V.OLT, EXCEPT FOR A FEW SORE POSTERIORS AND SEVERAL SUN- BURNED CRANIUMS, THE RADAR GANG IS BACK TO ITS NORMAL ROUTINE OF COLLECTING.
