Transcript THE BLUE \ BONNET ---------- 3 Two items and that same tax tf) ken were found n the BB Contri­buLion box: Item No. 1. ( Slightly aged): At a certain dance in Everett, there was one sailor who really stood out as a rug cutter, better known as a jitterbug. None other than the 203 p: mnd horsehide tosser of the sh: p's baEeball nine, Red ( Diz zy Dean) Ruddy, Sea2c, Third Division. Item No. 2. Dear Blue Bonnet:- Now that we are definitely in the Navy Yard for our annual over­haul period, why don't you become more active and sponsor various athlet ic activities? It would give the HOUSTON more ship spirit and also provide much needed recreation for all and not only a few. I really believe that an inter­div; sional baseball league would be welcomed by all divisions. Games could be played in the evenings as the days are long up here in Bremer­ton. I hope the Blue Bonnet will rea­lize the necessity of ship sports and take proper steps to encourage them. Yours Truly, A Shipmate Ocko's Wayside Observations Observed the Log House Pencil Pusher Partridge standing at atten­tion while Chief Engineer, Captain of the Yard," and several other officers waited for him in the Ward Room. Seems Mr. Gates called the lad up on the topside bareheaded, and left him alone. Consequently, Partridge is still blushing. Podner Meadows, aboard over two years, and fireman second class tlon't know yet what the Ordnance Department on board the HOUSTON is. Get out the book, Greasy! Won't do a bit of harm. Frank " Baldy" Clarkston keep­ing the boys in No. Four Fireroom entertained all the time with tall tales of Old Kentucky recently. Seems the boy had a twenty- five mile mail route which he covered on mule- back, Starting from early morning when it was nice and warm, he had gone with­out a coat. By the time he got back, a cold spell had set in and it was necessary to knock" his feet out of the stirrups with a chopping axe, due to the fact that they were frozen in. Ocko says that's a mighty huge story, in fact, even better than the one a­bout a submarine rolling fifty- seven llegrees, which I heard lately. The mad rush is on. All the Colden Grainers headed for the beach to look for homes for the coming overhaul period. It does make a dif­ference with all the extra ships in that were not here when we left. Just about as easy to get an apartment in Bremerton as it is to get a Special Order discharge in Boot Camp. How about cigars, Wallace? Our friend Jim Kenneth Wallace P" lt on buttons last week to become Chief Gunner's Mate, A. A., and we expect to see P. A. after his name in exactly one year. Jim has always claimed his wife allowed him sixtv cents per payday for cigarettes. Ocko wonders if she'll change that to six- bits or so now? Well, Jim, congratulation.:; nnJ a happy cruise; you've earneJ it! Joe Balicki, ex Nickleburgher man of the Pike in Long Beach, i3 now a Golden Grainer. He \ Va.:; teiI: n!,~ us all the difficulties of the state of matrimony one day recently. His al­lowance is seventy- five cents a week. He takes home fifty- four a month and occasionally receives twenty cents for beer. Nowadays Joe rolls his own from Bull Durham, while he used to smoke Sensations. Guess Ocko will do plenty of looking before he ties him­self to apron strings and gives up his right to wear the pants. The rea­son Joe is the ex- nickleburgher man is that he has swung a deal whereby he now gets two for fifteen cents. There's one big objection Little Ocko has to make to our present ship's organization. It seems there's nothing in there to make Swampy Dethloff stop calling him " kid". Now we maintain that a person standing six feet and one inch tall, and wear­ing size eleven and one- half shoes, is no longer a kid, and we want Swampy to stop it. If he doesn't, we are gonna tell what he pulled up at the Fleet Cocktail Lounge in Bremer­ton last June. You wouldn't want us to do that, now, would you? Obsel'ved a third class shipfitter with a mighLy sore upper lip on the last day we were in Port Angeles. Seem one cruiser sailor hasn't a chance against four or five battle­wagon gobs. Where were all the HOUSTON boys that night? Sure a nice way to stand by a shipmate­carry him home when the war is over!!! How about cigars on Edward L. Meado ; vs, snappy Turret Two gun striker? Last Friday morning, Sandl'a Lee 1YIeaClows arrived, weighing sevcn pounds, twelve ounces. Johnson, GMlc, now is on leave, having don:! a middle- aisle stunt rc­cently, u~ i 19 the double ring cere­mony. It is w: th deep concern we speak of Mrs. H. E. Freeman, who had a serious accident while bicycling in Bremerton recently. Herky took some leave to go to her side when we were in our last port of call, and told Ocko that her condition was good as can be expected. It is heartily wished by L" ttle Ocko and the Blue Bonnet that Mrs. Freeman will soon be her usual healthy and lovely self again. With best wishes to one and all, and a farewell greeting to Ensign B. Johnson, who left us last week. Little Ocko Says Nuff Said!! ••• Ship Race", To Rescue ( Continued from Palre 1.) at precisely the calculated time, close to ten- Lhirty the same evening. Wh'le both ' sh: ps hove to, a motor launch from the HOUSTON lost no time in transferring the patient, after which the HOUSTON immediately got un­derway again for Seattle. The doctor operated that night­and in spite of it being an unusually difficult operation, Temoved the man's appendix successfully. The patient was then transferred to the Naval Hospital at Bremerton the following day, and according to latest reports, is recuperating rapidly. -- J. Matthews
