SUNDAY AND MONDAY
Veteran of major invasions
from Guadalcanal to Okinawa,
the Salt Lake Cily’s B-and-8-
inch guns pounded the island
by day and remained on the
alert to ropel Jap suicide attacks
Shipboard routine on the Salt
Lake City was restricted en-
tirely to battle throughout the
campaign. No movies were
shown; recreation consisted of
sleeping, eating and some letter-
wriiing. Blackout wns in effect
In the long weeks of the
campaign, Kamikaze attacks in-
creased. Beside suicide planes,
the Japs sent high-speed boats
loaded with explosives. To meet
these attacks, gun crews were
sometimes called out several
times a night.
The pre-invasion bombard-
ment wns halted early on L-Day
—Easter Sunday—for the troops
to make their landings. Church
seovices on the cruiser were
broadcast over the ship’s loud-
speakers to Ihe men at their
battle stations. Soon after the
services, ‘‘commence firing” was
passed to all guns.
They started pounding the Japs
on Okinawa seven days before
amphibious forces landed and
then 43 days helped ground
troops thin out enemy lines with
their big guns.
Aboard the USIS Texas Some-
where in the Pacific (Delayed)
—Oather W. Hampton, 30,
ship’s serviceman, (tailor) third
clfjss, USNR, whose wife lives at
1030 West Woodard St., Deni-
son, Tex., served aboard this
man-o’.war, veteran of five
invasions, during 50 consecutive
days of the Okinawa campaign.
Throughout the bombardment
few men on this vessel slept
more than four hours out of 24.
At first the Japs remained
silent, but as their retreat
crowded them to the ends of the
island, fighting became more in-
tense and they sent formations
of planes in an attempt to hault
American naval and land opera-
tions. Three times Jarp suicide
pilots turned toward the Texas,
and each time she discouraged
them with antiaircraft fire.
The 31-year-old ship, skippered
by Capt. 'Charles A. Baker,
USN, of Washington, D. C., is
credited with being the only
American battleship to have
dealt with the enemy in waters
off three continents—-Africa,
Europe and Asia. She partici-
pated in the invasions of North
Africa, Normandy, southern
France and I wo Jima.

The first electric power transmission line in Texas was pioneered by the Iexas Po'

Thus, the nation’s demands for more and more war production found Texas and Texans
ready to pitch in and do a great job. And, when Peace has been re-established, Texas and
Texans will be ready to move forward with an upsurge of industrial development unparal-

the future are important, and while those plans have
their place in today's activities... they are not in
any way hampering the all-out dedication of this
Company to the job of helping to win the war!
