Transcript Out of the Ozone News of our stay in Houston has been very plentiful so far, un­doubtedly lots more will follow. E+ McCarty, P. P. O., is feeling pret-ty stuck up these days. All these visitors want his autograph. It must be great to be a policeman. E+ Pardner Meadows is having a great time in Houston. Says he has seen every movie in town. You should try the roller skating ring next Pard­nero E+ For all the latest dope on ice skating see Cheek, ship's barber. Son­ja Henie doesn't have a thing on him when it comes to cutting figures on ice skates. Guglietti, FC2c, isn't any slouch at it either. E+ Hart, our 2nd Division Casonova doesn't seem to have lost his tech­nique after all. What was it you said she had Harry? A Pierce Arrow or a Rolls Royce. E+ I hear it has been suggested to Hearst to wear a baseball mask shore­side from now on. Not a bad idea there. E+ This item is not official, but from latest reports it looks like wed­ding bells for our ever popular boat­swain's mate " Whitey" Wellborne. If its true, congratulations Whitey. E+ Hasty has a nice looking shiner. He even has a new story on how it happened. He slipped on a wet deck. He didn't say where the wet deck was but draw your own conclusion. E+ The Houston is a good ship after all, isn't it Claytor? E+ Flash! Jim Brady, an Executive Officer's yeoman, was married while on leave here in Houston. I know the ship's company joins the Blue Bon­net staff in wishing the best of luck to the newly- weds. E+ I can see why Bickley was so anxious to get to Houston. Congrat­ulations, fellow, how about the ci­gars? And give our regards to your newly wed wife. THE BLUE BONNET Jimmy Cash has that far away look in his eye now. Love certainly must be grand. E+ Our battling Polock certainly has a way with the women. It must be those lovely blue eyes and those lazy eye lashes. E+ Gregerich, C. M. M., claims that Podner Meadows of the Forward En­gine room is hs grandson. E+ One reason why Houston, Texas, is so popular with the ship's company is that Houston and Charleston have the same theme song. " It Makes No Difference Now." Trust Hattemer and Hardesty to find that out. Well Ship­mates? E+ Another week and more news. I hope to see you in my column then, so beware. The Prowler 10 · . · .. Houston Hillbillies Entertain Rotary The Houston's own strumming, singing Seagoing Hillbillies ( no flour advertisement) brought the songs of Texas home to Houston on Thurs­day this week when they appeared to entertain the Houston Rotary Club. The club had invited Vice Admiral Andrews and the ship's officers to a luncheon at the Rice Hotel on that day. The talented Seagoing Hillbillies, featuring " Dave" Davenport, M. M. 2c, Claude Osborne, Sealc, Ray Kelly, Sealc, and Wilson Lynn, Sea2c, have figured prominently in several ship's smokers in the past, one of which was presented before President Roosevelt. In Norfolk, a single radio perfor­mance brought them a measure of fame, demonstrated by numerous fan letters. ....... Encyclopedia Britamerica Gopher: That which when you sep a pretty girl you do. Professor: One who talks in some­one else's sleep. Powdered Sugar: The girl friend when she's all made up to go out. Hangover: Something which if you do not do over a bar J'ou won't have. Vegatable Soup: Hash, only looser. 3 The Art of Wearing Phones ( Continued from Page 1.) and do not become cauliflowered, a capital achievement. Loud noises can not be heard over the phone, such as an impatient caller yelling and test­ing his station. The principle of the method is that only noises loud e­nough to cause vibrations in the skull structure can be heard. Often times it is difficult to make a noise loud enough for that hence the necessity of having to use the ship service phone. Stop a moment and see the effi­ciency of this system; all sounds en­ter the system so all can be fully in­formed of the situation, yet only those loud enough to penetrate bone can be heard. The bones of the head are a filter, a check valve, for all unneces­sary noise. Another scene in which the mae­stro takes his cue and comes through with flying colors, the bridge or plot where there are several people wear­ing phones. In order to be available to all hands, he visits all and looks over their shoulders or merely wan­ders around and amongst the instru­ments, trailing his cord behind him. At the end of his travels he has very little left to trail. He is wanted im­mediately on the other side. A mad dash is made retracing his circuitous path, bumping into everyone and fi­], ally arriving much too late to be at all useful. A much more effective method is to talk to several of the talkers and walk around them two or three times while talking so as to get the cords intertwined. Poor devils: they don't know what he was doing and are they surprised when he starts to move and finds that they are well tied to the closest upright. Then too, if when he can't travel very far and he has become tired of twiddleing his thumbs, he sees how many times he can turn around without getting diz­zy. This gets the cord in kinks and snarled up so that the next inexper­ienced talker can spend the major part of his watch undoing your mas­terpiece. Some things should be read once and forgotten, others read twice and mulled over, and others thoroughly, carefully read and mentally digested. Study the maestro, figure out his ac­tions, consider the matter pro and con, then pattern your own ideas and see if you wish to follow his lead.
