       Formerly  there  were fifteen  print-
       ing establishments within this Dis-
       trict;  the  biggest being  located  on
       Mare  Island.
         As  a  result of an official  survey,
       however,  it was  accorded  that two
       large print shops would  be used. to
       serve  this  entire  district.  Because
       of  the  facilities  already  located  at
       Mare  Island  this  plant was  chosen
       as  was  the  enlarged  plant  at
       Treasure  Island.  The  printing  is
       handled by civilians at Mare Island,
       while  the print shop is operated by
       bluejacket  printers  at T.  I.
