Transcript _________ t u. s. s. Houston- 4- 15- 39- 2000. The Seven Ages of Salty Sal And so she can sleep, she's the tops of the heap, But is she? Why, we'll never know. For here is the riddle, who plays second fiddle When MA'M CINCUS meets DAME C. . O.? * * * * ...... Houston has a population of 334,000, and stands 26 with the rest of the cities of the United States. • • • • The famed Texas longhorn cattle are dying out and not being raised because they are not good beef cattle. The population of Texas as of July 1937 was 6,172,000. • • • • There are 262,398 square miles in land area alone in Texas, making it larger than any of the following European countries: France, England, Germany ( Nov. 15, 1938), Spain, Fin­land, Sweden, Norway, and Italy. The Bluebonnet ( Continued from Page 1.) . ". An ENSIGN'S wife leads a helluva life, Less than the dust is she, The foot of the ladder - and what could be sadder Than the snubbings by MRS. J. G. Always a new tenant, poor LADY LIEUTENANT Is never seen outside the " nook"; While babies are crawling and bawling and falling, She studies her cookery book. Grown stouter and grander, comes MADAM COMMANDER, Can we stand her? Well, yes - to her face. She looks down her nose at the other wives clothes, Till the CAPTAI ' S wife shows her her place. To the tune of the fife, swanks the proud CAPTAIN'S wife, Nodding ( just here and there) to some pal, But comes one she will fear: " Fancy meeting you here ­After you, deah MADAME ADMIRAL." Ah, at last Salty Sal, the Venerable gal, Must be tops - but stay; we bethink us, In that rarefied air which none of us dare She is sunk by the wife of the CINCUS. ...... THE BLUE BONNET Answers to Questions on Page 1. Ratlines are lines secured between shrouds to form a ladder. Rat- tails are lead- ins from wireless aerials. Rising is the fore and aft piece se­cured to a boat's · frames on which the thwarts rest. Rouse means to get and layout for use such as to rouse up cable from below. Rouse in means to haul in and lay out free for running. fell, there appeared the next morning a blanket of beautiful blue flowers­the Texas bluebonnets. Bluebonnets are blooming now. A few miles to the west or northwest from Houston they may be seen along the roadside or on the soil of rocky slopes. Occasionally sprinkled with the deep orange of the " Indian paint brush", whole fields display the bright blue of the flower Texans love best. 4 History of the Houston ( Continued from Page 2.) for a fishing trip in southern waters with President Roosevelt aboard. The President embarked on 14 July at the pier in Oakland. Shortly after the Houston swung past the anchored fleet in San Francisco Bay, thus al­lowing the President to review the en­tire assembled fleet. On 16 of July the President again embarked aboard the ship at San Diego and the Houston steamed out of the harbor bound for the fishing grounds. At Socorro Is­land, Clipperton Island, The Galap­agos Islands, and Cocos Island fishing was found to be excellent. On the 4th and 5th of August the ship transited the canal and after a brief stop at Old Providence Island finally termin­ated its voyage at Pensacola. Here the Chief Executive bid goodbye. A short trip to Norfolk, the trip around to the West Coast via the canal to the Navy Yard, and the short distance to Long Beach, plus the gunnery and other drills in the vicinity of Long Beach, ended our wandering for that year. On the fourth of January the Houston set sail from Long Beach with the fleet for the beginning of Fleet Problem XX. Leaving the fleet the Houston went to Key West where the President boarded on February 18th for his fourth cruise on the Hou­ston. Fishing on this cruise was very poor in comparison. Many Carribbean ports and islands were visited; Guan­tanamo Bay, Saona Island, Charlotte Amalie ( St. Thomas Is., Virgin Is­ · lands), Aves ( Bird) Island, Orange­town ( St. Eustatius), Culebra, V. I., Silver Bank, Mouchoir Bank, W. Ca­icos Is. At Charleston, S. C., the Pres­ident disembarked. Shortly after the President left us the Secretary of the Navy came a­board for a short two weeks cruise in the same waters. The most inter­esting port of this cruise was Shark Island at Dry Tortugas, Fla. Here Dr. Monk was imprisoned for setting Wilkes Booth's broken leg after he had shot President Lincoln. The Sec­retary of the Navy left us in Miami, Florida. Leaving Miami the Houston went to Guantanamo Bay for man­euvers before coming to Houston. ... .... Azutch says that life is just one fool thing after another: Love is just two fool things after one another. So, come all you free girls, and follow the sea, girls, Where the waves have their ups and their downs. Though the ladder is high, you'll climb up by and by Where the Salty Sals sit with their crowns.
