Tineman (DE-589) was laid down by the Bethlehem Hingham Shipyard, Hingham, Mass., on 21 December 1943, launched on 26 June 1944, sponsored by Mrs. James Corley, sister of Seaman Tinsman, and commissioned on 26 June 1944, Lt. William G. Grote, USNR, in command.

Following fitting out and trials, the destroyer got underway on 21 July 1944, proceeded to Bermuda on shakedown, and returned to Boston on 19 August. On 11 October, she departed Boston harbor and, the next day, joined a convoy bound, via the Panama Canal, for the South Pacific. She arrived at Seeadler harbor in the Admiralty Islands late in November and, after training exercises, headed for New Guinea. On 2 December, she reached Hollandia, but was soon at sea again escorting a convoy to Leyte.

On 14 December, while Tineman was in San Pedro Bay, a Japanese suicide plane grazed the bridge of a nearby tanker. A week later, the destroyer escort was back in New Guinea waters, anchoring in Humboldt Bay. The day after Christmas, she was on the move again, this time for waters off the Vogelkop Peninsula of New Guinea for antisubmarine patrol.

In the first days of the new year, she escorted a convoy to San Pedro Bay; then, on 6 January 1945, she departed Leyte to screen a convoy bound for Lingayen Gulf, Luzon. Japan, attempting to stop the miRhty American naval force steaming northward, unleashed swarms of kamikaze planes. On 12 January—as Tinsman escorted a slow-moving group consisting of an oiler, tugs, and tows—enemy suicide planes attacked her convoy. During the day, the American ships fought off four Japanese attackers, splashing two enemy planes. On the 13th, Tinsman's guns opened up on yet another Japanese aircraft which soon went out of control and splashed. On the 14th, Tinsman anchored in Lingayen Gulf and retired the next day toward Leyte, arr*ing in San Pedro Bay on the 18th to prepare for the landings at Nasugbu, Luson.

Tinsman departed Leyte Gulf on 27 January 1946 with Amphibious Group 8 and, on the 31st, arrived at Nasugbu Bay where troops of the 11th Airborne Division landed without serious opposition. The real threat came that night as a large number of Japanese " Q-boats" attacked the American ships. Armed with imPact bombs, these small, sinister craft swarmed out of the darkness and attempted to ambush Lough (DE-586) as she patrolled not far from Tineman. Tinsman provided illumination enabling Lough to foil the attack, sinking at least six of the enemy vessels. Tinsman departed Luzon on 2 February in a convoy bound for Mmdoro. Throughout February, she shuttled between Mangarin Bay and Nasugbu Bay on escort duty.

Early in March, she left Leyte Gulf, bound for New Guinea. After taking on stores at Hollandia, Tinsman returned to the Philippines and resumed escort duty. In mid-April, she made a voyage to the Palaus and, in July, she varied her routine of convoy duty with visits to Ulithi and Hollandia before returning to the Philippines.

Although the war ended in August, Tinaman remained in the Far East, operating mainly in the Philippines. She also made voyages to Hollandia and Tientsin before setting course for home on 29 November. Steaming via Eniwetok and Pearl Harbor, she arrived at San Pedro, Calif., on 18 December 1945.

She was later berthed at San Diego where she was placed out of commission on 11 May 1946. On 16 May 1972, her name was struck from the Navy list, and, on 14 September 1973, her hulk was sold to Levin Metals Corporation, San Jose, Calif., for scrapping.

Tinsman received two battle stars for World War II service.

History of Twin State, Inc. and Liqui-Grow

Brothers Hovey and Scott Tinsman had a vision of a Midwestern, family owned company in 1958 when they formed Twin-State Engineering & Chemical Company. That vision was to design a manufacturing process for clear liquid fertilizer analyses for the agricultural market in eastern Iowa and northwestern Illinois.

The beginning of the vision was in Walcott, Iowa, in 1959 where they built a small pilot plant for production.

Liquid fertilizer was new to the Midwest. The distribution system designed was a small network of small, newly established dealers. Each dealer would require a liquid fertilizer mixing system, developed by Scott and Hovey, to service their customers. This network was the beginning of many great relationships in the industry for Scott, Hovey, and Twin State.

The evolution of the industry has seen many changes in processing, distribution, application equipment, and analyses offered to the market, along with the introduction of pesticides. Twin State developed the “pipe reactor” used in the production of clear polyphosphate 10-34-0, N-P-K starter grades (6-24-6-.25Z) and SLX high potash suspension grade analyses. As the company grew from one production facility and one retail facility to three production facilities and fourteen retail facilities, the employee population grew from two to 125 full-time workers. These expansions have allowed the company to reach a much larger market. Today, you will see state of the art production facilities at all three of our manufacturing plants and the newest in application technology at our retail facilities.

A more complex distribution system evolved when we began shipping nitrogen solutions and concentrated solutions of phosphate, potash, and sulfur to our retail facilities and to a continuously growing network of dealers for further mixing to meet the growers’ needs. Our products travel through the Midwest market under the trademark Liqui-Grow.

Key to product development and market share growth was the establishment of an effective research program, with skilled staff, to quantify benefits to growers. The result was our Agronology 10 recommendation program and the extremely important Site Specific program for maximizing yield and on-farm profits by reducing the cost-per-bushel for the grower.

Relationships between people are important in our industry and to our company. Twin State has concentrated on hiring quality staff in all areas of our organization. Training and teamwork, in addition to product quality and timely delivery, have been critical to our growth.

While all of the growth was happening within Twin State, the Tinsman families were also growing. Hovey, Sr. passed away in 2011 and Scott, Sr. continues as the teacher and advisor that he has always been. Three Tinsman family members–Hovey (“Hov”), Scott, Jr., and Bruce Tinsman–have joined the family business and are playing a unique role in the growth and direction of the company. We continue to be a leading producer and distributor of fluid fertilizers, related pesticides, and seed and are proud to be a family owned company that has avoided the mergers and acquisitions so commonplace in agriculture today.

Tinsman (Calhoun County)

Tinsman is a town in eastern Calhoun County. Once important as a junction for the Rock Island Railroad, the town has faded considerably since the decline of the railroad.

Until the arrival of European and American settlers, the forested hills of Calhoun County were only sparsely settled, although the Caddo lived in the area perhaps as much as 5,000 years ago. Covered with pine, oak, cypress, red gum, and hickory trees, the region was not welcoming to early settlers, although some did arrive in the 1840s and 1850s, mostly from Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee. Calhoun County was largely untouched by the Civil War, although roughly 400 men from the county fought in the war, most of them for the Confederacy.

Late in the nineteenth century, the Choctaw, Oklahoma and Gulf Railroad began construction of tracks in Calhoun County. In 1904, the railroad was purchased by the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad (generally called the Rock Island). Railroad construction linked the major cities of Arkansas to one another and spurred the development of new cities at the same time. A junction was created at the present location of Tinsman, with a main line going north to Little Rock (Pulaski County), then branching to extend service on one line to Camden (Ouachita County) and on the other line to Junction City (Union County). Stores and homes were built at the junction, as well as a railroad depot. The U.S. Postal Service opened a post office at that site in 1906, and the town was incorporated in 1909. No record exists to explain the origin of the town’s name, but it likely was named for a railroad executive or worker.

The community continued to grow, and a school was built in 1920. That school building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places but was subsequently demolished. Churches and a sawmill were also constructed, and the population had exceeded 250 residents by 1940.

The growth trend then reversed for Tinsman. The hardwoods had been harvested and were not replaced, and railroad traffic began to be displaced by vehicular traffic. Highway 274, which runs through Tinsman, made it easy for drivers to travel to the county seat of Hampton (Calhoun County) or the larger city of Fordyce (Dallas County). The Rock Island Railroad reduced services, eventually becoming bankrupt and going out of business in 1980. The Tinsman School was closed in 1961—although the building continues to be used as a community center—and children began being bused to classes in Hampton. The post office was closed in 1975.

As late as 1990, Tinsman still had two church, a grocery store, and the Smith/Roberts Timber Company, but all of these, save the town’s Baptist church, had closed by the start of the twenty-first century. In 2010, the population of the town had fallen to fifty-four.

Northern Dynasties 北朝 (386

The Northern Dynasties Beichao 北朝 (386-581) is a series of dynasties that ruled over northern China, while the south was ruled by the so-called Southern Dynasties 南朝 (420

589). Both groups of dynasties are called the Southern and Northern Dynasties Nanbeichao 南北朝 (300

600). The period of the Northern Dynasties begins either with the foundation of the non-Chinese Northern Wei dynasty in 386, or in 439, the year of the reunification of northern China by the Northern Wei, and ends with the foundation of the Sui dynasty 隋 (581-618) that eventually reunited the whole of China. The 5th and 6th century is therefore called the era of the Southern and Northern Dynasties 南北朝 (300

600). Except those of the Northern Qi dynasty 北齊 (550-577), all rulers of the Northern Dynasties belonged to the people of the Taɣ​bač 拓跋, a tribe of the steppe federation of the Xianbei 鮮卑. Their dynasties were the Northern Wei 北魏 (386-534), Western Wei 西魏 (535-556) and Eastern Wei 東魏 (534-550), and the Northern Zhou 北周 (557-581).

In the early 3rd century CE northern China was brought into turmoil by the uprisings of various Non-Chinese peoples that lived scattered among the Chinese population. Besides the rebellions of the Xiongnu 匈奴, Xianbei, Di 氐, Qiang 羌 and Jie 羯, the central government of the Chinese Jin dynasty 晉 (265-420) was critically weakened by power struggles among the nobles. In 317 the court of the Jin empire had to flee to the south, where the Eastern Jin dynasty 東晉 (317-420) was established. In the coming one hundred years northern China was ruled by the so-called Sixteen Barbarian States 十六國 (300

430). The last of these states were weeped away by the troops of the Northern Wei empire that reunited northern China. The boundaries of the Northern Wei reached from the city states of the Tarim Basin (see Silk Road) to the Yellow Sea and from the northern steppe to the River Huai 淮河 and the border with the Southern Dynasties. In the southwest, the Northern Wei empire also included parts of modern Sichuan.

In 534 internal struggles among the imperial house of the Northern Wei led to the division into the Eastern and Western Wei empires. The real strongmen behind the two emperors were the Chinese Gao Huan 高歡 and the Xianbei noble Yuwen Tai 宇文泰. Both soon founded their own empires, Northern Qi and Northern Zhou. In 577 Northern Qi was conquered by Northern Zhou, and for a few years northern China was again reunited before general Yang Jian 楊堅 founded the Sui dynasty in 581 that reunited the whole of China.

The social conditions of northern China under the Northern Dynasties were quite complex because of the different concepts Chinese and Non-Chinese communities posed upon their populations. The uncertain conditions of life had since the 3rd century CE contributed to the development of a situation in which nobles or landowners were the patrons of dependend peasants, servants, slaves and private armies. These were able to display a certain independance from the central government and continuously challenged its authority. In both types of socities, Chinese and Non-Chinese, a model of a master-and-servant or patron-and-client society prevailed. In the Non-Chinese communities, the status of servants was more that of a slave, according to the customs of the steppe peoples. Yet both models posed upon the state the problem of taxing a sufficient number of households. Both tenant farmers as dependents of a landowner as well as slaves as "private asset" of a Xianbei noble did not have to pay taxes, a situation that substantially contributed to the narrow tax yields of the Northern Dynasties' treasuries.

All dynasties tried to establish an administrative structure modeled after the previous Chinese governments, yet all of them retained sufficient room for the nobility of the steppe peoples that provided them sufficient independancy from the central government. Chinese and Non-Chinese customs mutually influenced and brought to light new developments in politics, economy and culture. The Northern Wei introduced the equal-field system (juntianzhi 均田制) that promised each peasant an equal share of land, according to the ancient Chinese model of the well-field system (jingtianzhi 井田制). The military was, according to the idea of the steppe peoples, organised as garrison militia (fubing 府兵), an inheritable system in which military households (yinghu 營戶) were professionals for generations.

The general view towards culture was also influenced by the steppe and influenced the cultural products of the north to such an extent that cultural objects of the Northern Dynasties can be called crude or at least austere and simple in comparison to those of the south. The literary production of the north was therefore also far less than that of the Southern Dynasties. Religion on the other side played an important role in the life in China's north, and the rulers of the Northern Wei were great patrons of Buddhism. Under their patronage, the Buddhist caves of Yungang 雲岡 and Longmen 龍門 were created.

7/12/2009 - Sunday Watch

Another beautiful Sunny Day, temperatures around 75-80. This Sunday the Slater was fully staffed and moderately busy. On a typical Sunday, the we usually get a crowd right after lunch. This Sunday was no exception. I gave a tour to one group of 15 visitors.

One of the reasons I like to write a blog, is that writing process helps to fact check myself.

Between tours I had a discussion with one of the younger volunteers about the configuration of the 01 Level when the Slater was first launched. The 01 level is the deck with the motor whale boat and the 40mm cannons . In 1945 the Slater was re-armed for the Pacific theater. At that time Japanese Kamikazes were a major threat. The after torpedo tubes were removed, and the single 20mm cannons were replaced with twin mounts. And two additional twin 40mm bofors gun mounts were added.

This Sunday, I got some of my facts correct. However, I incorrectly described the configuration of the 20mm's by the stack. We also discuss the 3" Loading machine (which is used for training gun crews). We knew that the Loading Machine was before the stack when the Slater returned from Greece. However, I wasn't sure that it was there in WWII. I served on two destroyers, one had a Loading Machine and one didn't. I incorrectly surmised that perhaps the WWII Slater didn't have a 3" loading machine. Since the Aethos D-01 (the Slater's name in the Greek Navy) was a training ship, I incorrectly surmised that the loading machine (used for training gun crews) as a Greek Navy addition.

I decided to check for old photo's of the configuration of the 01 Level. I ran across this one of the USS Osterhaus (DE-164) . Like the Slater, the Osterhaus was a Cannon Class. The photo clearly shows the 01 Level: with torpedo tubes, with 20mm single mounts by the stack, and with a 3" loading machine.

Regarding the use of a 3" Loading Machine, I found this interesting WWII story about training on a 5" Loading Machine . When I was on active duty, I remember instructing my ammo handlers to remove all rings from their fingers. The linked story tells why.

During the slack times between tours the guides also tell sea stories. Following one of the tours, we chatted with a visitor who noted that he was from Poland. I told the visitor about the Saga of Polish of Polish Gold. In 1943 two DEs, the USS Breeman and the USS Bronstein , were dispatched to Dakar, West Africa . They were assigned to pick up 60 million (1943) dollars in gold that belonged to the Bank of Poland. This was over 50 tons of gold, and in today's dollars it would represent approximately 1.5 Billion Dollars.

The full story is detailed in one of my favorite books about Destroyer Escorts: Tempest, Fire and Foe by Lewis M. Andrews, jr . Portions of this book are now available on Google Books, including the Saga of Polish Gold . This is a great book that I highly recommend.

Copter Falls Seeking Man
Three Killed

Mt. Morris, NY. (AP) — An Air Force helicopter crewed by Maj. Leo J. Carbonneau (P), Capt. Victor H. Hanf (CP) and SSgt. John E. Tinsman, searching for an elderly lost professor crashed in the wild, wooded gorge of the Genesee River Wednesday and all three men aboard were killed.

The helicopter, from Niagara Falls AFB, hit a high tension line over the gorge and plummeted to a tiny island in the river.

The crash scene, near the north end of Letchworth State Park, is in an almost-inaccessible area of near wilderness. It is about four miles west of Mt. Morris and 35 miles southwest of Rochester.

The helicopter left Niagara Falls about 10 a.m. to assist in the search for Dr. Walter R. Bloor, 83, professor emeritus of biochemistry at the University of Rochester. Bloor walked away from a picnic area in the park late yesterday and failed to return.

The crash occurred about 12:20 p.m.

Nearly three hours later, Bloor was found walking not far from where he disappeared.
