Interesting... the SCR-179 (and the SCR-178) are two models of radio:

SCR-178:

I'm not sure if those two models were in use in 1911 (from the internet it seems more probable they were used after WWI - mainly in WWII, but created in between wars); moreover, those were made for artillery corps... so it's possible that piece of paper has nothing to do with the logbook.

I found a letter at the start of the Atak logs.

https://catalog.archives.gov/OpaAPI/media/23712768/content/dc-metro/rg-026/587169/0002/Atak-1943-03/Atak-1943-03-0002.JPG

I found it very moving. I hope so very much that the lovely Sylvia was still waiting in her dress shop when our sailor came home. I feel quite affected by it.
