It would be hard to imagine that anywhere in the world there exists more gracious hospitality than that offered to the personnel of the USS Salt lake City and USS Northampton during our recent visit to Brisbane. As it was graciously offered it was enthusiastically accepted. Appearances, characteristics and character itself were mutually appreciated and admired. It is in this way, more than any other that a nation wins friends and confidence, that the word "alien" becomes meaningless, and the significance of the word "friend" deepens. The world grows smaller. The "largest island and the smallest continent" no longer is but a name signifying some strange far away place that is different. It is now the home of a charming people.
The Rope Yarn, as official newspaper of the USS Salt Lake City, will conduct a ship-wide contest to obtain the best article of not more than 250 words upon the recent visit to Brisbane. The winners will receive Ship Service chits, and the best entries will be published in next weeks Rope Yarn, with a suitable award for each winning contestant.
