Transcript Chinese Checkers In the last two or three years, Chinese checkers has come into its own as the popular game of the coun­try. Hop Ching was the originator of the game many centuries gone by, in fact the game is as old as Confuc­ius the great Chinese philosopher, having been started the century be­fore. It was while waiting for his opponent to move that Confucius de­vised and wrote his renown teachings. In his diary he spoke frequently of playing checkers with Wong Fo o. The Chinese are a slow and delibrate race, and Wong Foo, the greatest of checkers players, was no exception. It is written that at one time he took an hour to make a move. When Wong Foo played with six people it took a week to finish the game, for trying to foresee all moves that six people could make and take advantage of each one required great concentrat­ion. The reason for this seeming un­due length of time when playing was his theory of the game which he was endeavoring to put into practice: " The Foo- er moves the better." or " If one makes Foo. moves he can't go far Wong." ..... aval Contingent at Fair The naval contingent at the New York World's Fair will be composed of 200 bluejackets from the avy and 200 marines. Commanding the naval force will be Lieut. Leland R. Lampman, U. S. N., who will be assis­ted by the following officers: Lt. ( jg) Samuel M. Kial, U. S. N.; Lt. ( jg) Adolphe Wildner, U. S. N.; Ensign Francis E. Friedrick, U. S. N. .. I'. New Recruits Aboard Just before leaving Charleston 26 new recruits arrived on board the Houston from Newport Training Sta­tion. They had volunteered for sea duty in preference to being with the World's Fair contingent in New York. All of them are seamen 2/ c, good men, and the Houston is glad to have them aboard. Unfortunately however, we lost ten of them on arr­ival in Guantanamo for the Salt Lake City needed men. .... ( I don't like it either) They call him Curley because he had a short wave set. THE BLUE BONNET Out of the Ozone • • • • Charleston, City of magnolia gar­dens and pretty girls, took its toll of heartaches and headaches. Scuttle­butt about the ship puts the number who succumbed to the wiles of the fair sex so muc;: h as to do the middle aisle stunt at about ten. This more than equals the record made last time the ship visited Houston, Texas, when eight took the marriage vows. • • • • The ship's dance tprned out to be a howling success with the ships orchestra mixing up a variety of num­bers. This was the first dance the ship has had for two years, but it brought out quite a lot of unsuspected jitter­bug talet-- namely, Pop Baker of the electrician gang and the sensation of the evening, none other than Sammy Fox who gets into the groove with both legs pumping like pistons. Is that man forty- five years old? • • • • From reports, Martin of the 1st Division wanted some dancing ins­tructions from Sonny Philips girl friend. So when she turned him down he went into a solo. His version of how they dance in the hills of Wash­ington was something between a log rolling contest and a sack race. • • • • Some of the more serious hit lads when the lines were cast off were Schnoz Hattemer, Jasinski, Prentice, Nystel, Rold, and Jack Barron. This is only the beginning of the list. • • • • The basketball team beat out the soldiers from Fort Moultrie during the last three minutes of play. Final score was 41 to 31. Chmura was the high point man with fifteen points. The team is good. Most of the time its just a question of how bad the oth­er team gets beat. • • • • I used to think some of the old timers were a bad influence on Hasty ow I dunno. • • • • What did the girl in the green dress say to y · ou., . C. o. ckrane? Weaver and Baker of the " M" were shaken around a bit when their taxi hit a telephone pole. The driver of the cab suffered a broken leg­Baker and Weaver got cut about the face. You fellows were lucky it didn't turn out more disastrously. Page i> Bum dope is still floating around the ship. I've heard the ship is going every place from the Navy Yard in Portsmouth to a surprise trip around the horn. Another choice bit of scutt­lebutt is that we are going to Ber­muda to take on a cargo of onions. • • • • Who cut that article out of the Blue Bonnet and stuck it on the bull­etin board???? Don't you believe everything that's printed???? BEWARE The Prowler .... How Sad The bear saw Benji, Benji aw the bear, The bear grew bulgy, The bulge was Benji. Useless ( So is the whole poem) What's the use of studying and worrying and fretting and getting sore at yourself? In the end you will be worm food and pretty little flowers will grow on what used to be your nose. Subtractively Speaking ( How did this get in here?) Oh, my dear, please don't try that any more here. Oh, my dear, please don't try that any more. Oh, my dear, please don't try that any. Oh, my dear, please don't try that. Oh, my dear, please don't try. Oh, my dear, please don't. Oh, my dear, please. Oh, my dear. Oh, my. Oh! ( Skip this one) It was their first spat. Said the bride, " And furthermore before we were married, I though~ that you were well off." " I was, but I was too dumb to know it, then."
