Transcript Volume 1 Number 11 Lloustaches­A Dissertion A moustache starts very simply. A man wishes to show his manhood to other men. He can grow a mous­l: che. a big black smear, that shames all others; one that can be twirled and waxed. This growth, as he is s~ 1ch a man, takes but a short time. It can all be done in a two we ks cruise. There are many that believe only sufficient faith is necessary to start on the noble experiment of growing a mustache. If there are any doubts, now is the best time to look around and see the veracity of this statement. Look for dark shadows under the nose. Most of them after the third day remind one of the shadow of a bright light shining from directly a­above the person to be disillusioned about his virile manhood that was to be flaunted before the world. This dark shadow is more evident of those persons whose beard is fairly heavy : mL! dark, for their youth. Look care­fully; you will be able to find one or two. A more ludicrous spectacle is the blond bearded fellow who thinks that he can grow a visible moustache. These are the more difficult to find. The light has to be just right so that it will reflect on the infinitely deli­cate fuzz of the nether lip. Occasion­ally, it requires a very bright light to see them, something akin to seeing dust particles in a beam of sunlight. The only acid test of the actuality of the moustache is to feel it against the grain. When this is accomplished, a hardly perceptible roughness can be felt. Have you ever felt the rough­ness of ' crocus cloth'? That is tbe best equivalent feeling. To have the ( Continued on page 2) Long Beach, Calif.

He was awarded the Goo I CO'duct IIIedal on 15 December 192:). foil) , TOe 1 by Cood Conduct bars in 1926, 1930, 19::: 4, and the Good Conduct pin on 21 February, 1938. On 20 February, 1931, he recieved the permanent np­pointed as Chief Turret Captain. In addition to good conduct, he has this entry in his record:" G June, 193G, Commended this date for your ealci­elit and tactful performance o{ duty as shore patrol in Valparaiso, Chile, anJ particularly by individually sup­pressing incipent trouble." Hi career :., the Navy was fully and well round­eJ out by an ancient and honorable ceremony, when he became a Shell­back on 25 July, 1938. Hubbard's departure i felt keen­ly by all and he is mi sed by his ship­mates. His record is a perfect exam­ple for others to : follow. 15 May 1939 Lucky Thirteen During the last week of this last cruise, the wardroom has had a bridge craze. All spare time has been spent playing bridge. Perfect hands are of­ten dreamed of but seldom held, even when held, difficult to believe. This happened on 9 May, 1939, and you may believe it or not. Avia­tion Cadet A. J. Dugan was playing bridge in the wardroom. Ensign Min­ter made the cards, Ensign Wengro­vius cut the cards. Lt. ( jg) G. M. Price dealt the cards. Lt. ( jg) Davis was kibitzing. Mr. Dugan picked up his cards, looked at them and put them down on the table. He picked them up and put them down again. Mr. Price pas­sed, Mr. Minter bid a heart. Mr. Dugan bid even spades. Mr. Davis looked at 1\ 11'. Dugan's hand. Mr. Yi engrovius passed. Mr. Price passed. l~ Ir. 1': inter doubled. Mr Dugan re­,! oub: ed and laid down a hand with thirteen spades side by side. If you doubt this fact, just ask Mr. Dugan to show them to you. He carries all thirteen cards in his pocket. Having thirteen spades in one hand is very unusual, so much so, that it was figured out after much research, that the occurrance is likey to happen only once in 1,905,040,678, 800 time. 11'. Dugan's stories have always been little hard to believe, but after this, perhaps, maybe, they might have happened. What Are The Following? ( Answers on Page 4.)
