retired, who, with Mre Tucker. ' was
aboard the United States Array trans

in Manila.' according to a letter received
here, found it necessary when the

Manila Once Was Home.
Colonel and Mrs. Tucker, who now re
elde on their Upper Valley ranch. EJ
Correeidor, named for the fortress
guarding the entrance to Manila har
bor, were former residents of Mcftilla,
where the Colonel was stationed as
paymaster of the Islands Department
of the Army. Later Colonel Tucker
was paymaster at Vancouver Barracks
and then at the Lakes Department at
Chicago. They came to Hood River
in 1909, when he was retired because
of ill health, which e has since re
gained, he says, because of the health
fulness of Oregon's climate.
Portions of the letter follow:
"This has been my first voyage at
sea when the wireless kept us in touch
with land and the other ships. So one
does not feel that he is out of touch
with his people. We could be reached
any day. Any trouble to our ship would
be known in a brief time. The wire
less is one of the greatest wonders of
the electrical age.
Radio Brings Invitation.
Our friends at Guam, finding we
were aboard, sent us a radiogram to
come right to them. The Governor
General In the same fashion invited
some 80 of us to a formal luncheon,
after which a naval band started an
Informal dance. My, how sweet the
ladies looked in their tropical dresses.
We danced until 3 A. M. and then hur
ried to catch the launch for the trans
port,' Our voyage from Guam to Ma
nila was pleasant. We arrived there
a day ahead of time, being only five
days en route.
"Guam is an island we took in 1898.
Now Its best known use is for a cable
station, one line going to Manila, the
other to Japan, both working to the
east on one cable. A small harbor has
been out out of the coral shell and
sand so that one can go within two
miles of the landing; small boats ply
ing through the reefs that come to the
surface all around.
Many Old Prlends Met.
"Manila has been wonderfully im
proved broad streets, a new and beau
tiful hotel and splendid auto service.
We found many old friends there and
our days were filled with visits and
sightseeing I made a formal visit to
the Governor-General. Mr. Harrison,
and found him Interesting and cordial.
"On January 10 I was invited to at
tend the formal dinner given In honor
of Admiral Winterhalter. who had Just
arrived In Manila Bay in command of
the Asiatic fleet. The evening was a
delightful one for me, as I met many
of the distinguished officers of the
Army and Navy, as well as many civil
officials. We enjoyed seeing Fort
William McKinley and the new Army
and Navy Club.
"The stay wa all too brief and it
was with real sorrow that we bade
farewell to Manila and old-time
friends. The Sheridan left the wharf
amid showers of flowers, the band
piaying ana mends crowding the
uock waving tneir 'bon voyage.' "
