  • Tribute to the U. S. Navy

    Eternal Father, strong to save,


    Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,

    Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep

    Its own appointed limits keep;

    Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,


    For those in peril on the sea!

    --The “Navy Hymn” sung at the U.S. Naval Academy

I travelled with a classmate by auto as far as St. Louis. There I took the train to Portland, Oregon where my parents met me for the drive to their home, about 50 miles to the north, in Longview Washington,. In order to save travel expenses I had taken a coach rather than a Pullman sleeping car.
