Transcript Out of the Ozone There certainly is a happy atmos­phere around the ship lately. Perhaps we are going back to the West Coast? E+ Having just left Houston, Texas, one hears many comments on the lib­erty in that port. All I have been able to hear is good reports. The only bad reports are from a few single men who said that they had to get early liberty to stand a chance with the married men. E+ Every new port adds to the married men's list. A few who took the final step are; Joe Balicki, James Brady, -. Bickely and Slater. Congratulations. E+ Casanova Malcomb was in full stride again; anothe::" port, another broken heart. It is certainly nice to be so handsome isn't it, Shaky? E+ For all the latest steps in jitttlr­bugging, see Rold. He was taking lessons in dancing during our stay in Houston. E+ If you've heard this one before, stop me. The lady visitor asking Chubby Wade's pardon because he was so tiny she couldn't see him when she ran over him. E+ Some things are going to be hal' J to explain when we get back to Long Beach, aren't they Leo and Wes[ e~' ­field? E+ McClure has an idea that he looks like Tyrone Power. It wouldn't have been so bad if the girl hadn't kept telling him how good- looking he wa3. E+ I wonder who the married man was that beat Allred out. E+ Hearst didn't need the baseball mask after all. He seemed to be in very good hands during our stay in Houston. E+ The Houston baseball team played a seven to seven tie with the Grand Prize Brewery. The game was called on account of darkness. It looks as if t~ e ship should have a good baseball teaP. 1 once they get in shape. E+ THE BLUE BON ET If you were out to the barbecue it wasn't Fred Astaire and Ginger R~?' ­ers you saw, that was Johnny Esp" and Smith, 2nd div. Oh, you jitterbug kings. E+ Well friends? I'll be seeing you. Its too bad you can't see me. But I can't afford to hire bodyguards. BEWARE!!!! .... The Prowler A Dentist's Nightmare ( Continued from PSlI'e 2.) as though you are burning Up? Corns hurt? Does your hair fall out? Get chills? Have difficulty with breath­ing?" ( etc.). ( Now orderly enters) Orderly: " May I have a welfare check to pay a bill right away?" Dr. Schlack: ( Drops all instruments on deck and gets a bunch of books from a rack. After pondering over them for a minute answers) " I do not know if the Welfare Treasurer can give you a check or not for this bill. Will have to take it up with the Welfare Officer." ( Orderly departs. Dr. Schlack goes back to the patient.) Dr. Schlack: " Now what can I do for you? The last case I had in here was a rather bad one. Oh, you are still the same patient. I'm afraid that I will have to take an X- Ray. ( Takes all the stuff out of patient's mouth and gets things ready for the X- Ray. When everything is ready finds the X- Ray machine does not work.) Sorry, the machine is not working but I Lon't believe I will need the pi ture anyway. ( Stuffs material back into pat: ent's mouth.) Now then....... ( this moment a hissing sound as though something is blown. Dentist goes over to investigate.) This is terrible, the air compressor has just blown. ever a dull moment! Corpsman, call the ship fitter!" Corpsman: ( Yells from the chair in which he is sitting.) " Smith." Smith: ( Enters carryng block and tackle and a whole bunch of tools. Yawns and in a deep voice:) " Hello, Butch!" ( to dentist.) Dr. Schlack: ( Answers) " Hello Cud­dles. Is something WTong? How have you been? By the way, aren't you supposed to be here for something? Oh, yes." ( Takes Smith over to com­pressol'. Smith begins to hammer on ceck making a racket. Doctor gazes 3 on.) tmith: " Have to get a first class 0: 1 this job." Corpsman: ( Calls first class) " Hey Curly." ( Bald- headed man enters and goes over to Smith and the ham­mer on deck. Patient is moaning in chair.) Dr. Schlack: " Don't you think we should get some others to help you?" Corpsman: ( Calls) " Hey, you shipfit­ters." ( A whole bunch enters office and the noise becomes worse with the hammering, etc. Patient is moaning. Dr. Schlack now has difficulty getting over to patient and tries to push his way to the patient, jumping up and dO', vn and yelling to patient) Dr. Schlaclc " Be calm, this won't take a minute." ( Finally the gang comes over to the dentist and starts mumbling.) Dr. Schlack: " You say i'; will have to be repaired in the yard? Why that will take months, I hope, and I will have to close up the office. That's fine." Gang leaves office.) Dr. Schlack: " Now then." ( As Doctor is about to work on pat­: ent again, a sound of bottles banging to~ ether comes over the loud speaker and a female voice over the speaker says) " General Quarters. Will all of you who can find time please go to your oottle stations? Follow the ar­rov/ s. That is all." ( Dentist buckles on belt of tools, slings gas mask over ~; houlder, grabs damage control book - all this very slowly- and is about to leave the office when same female voice says): " Secure from general quarters." Dr. SChlack: " Now then, my man, your case is a very serious one and should be taken care of immediately. All kinds of fatal things may occur if this is not attended to at once. For example, you may die of ingrown toe­nails, cancer, tuberculosis, pneumonia, typhod fever, drowning, broken neck, or who knows, you might get shot or stabbed. So you can readily see why this should be taken care of without delay." ( Female voice over the loud speaker) " First boat for shore leaving immedi­ately," Dr. chlack: ( Drops everything and tells patient) " You will have to come back tomorrow." THE E D
