Transcript THE BLUE BONNET Page 3 £tTTL€ Who do you suppose we saw in the Machine Shop the other night, plucking his eyebrows ? No other than Nicollette, elder member of the Three Rover Boys of the Navy. That is bad dope there Nick, for a man of your age and means, because those dusky lasses of the islands will have you roped and tied before you get a fair start. Have you seen the flashy dungarees that Panama Sanders, WT2c, has been wearing around lately ? They tell me that he keeps a can of bright work polish in his locker to keep the buttons shined and has to shine those shoes of his three times a day to keep them even with the dungarees. We stopped in number three mecsing compartment the other day and it was there at the table that we saw the medium sized trough that had been placed there for the younger of the Three Rover Boys (so he claims), Crego, the mighty Sparktrician of tha I. C. Room. It came about that he failed for once to be the first one at the table and one of the other lads came along and tossed the offending trough off the table. Would have liked to have heard what the Rover Boy had to say on the matter though. During the rough weather that came upon the ship during Fleet Problem Part V, there came, as is usual, tall tales of other ships in other waters and times. The final straw was when Wimpy Stachnik, BMlc, told one a- bout the goldfish in the wardroom on the Tulsa, in Asiatic waters, and how it got so rough that the goldfish got seasick riding in the bowl assigned to them in the Wardroom. That was a tall one, but get Charlie Putnam to tell you the one where the ship rolled some sixty-nine degrees in the Indian Ocean. Jim Wallace is also good at that sort of thing, only Jim says that he tells the truth. A. Rollin DeForge, SM3c, is wailing his troubles from one wing of the bridge to the other. Wednesday he missed all three meals and boy,- was he burned up. Howard Chase, one of the Engineers' Force Badger Boys, threw his keys at Robinson, WTlc, and as Robbie ducked the keys described a beautiful arc and dropped into the blue, clear water. Montgomery, Boat Deck Romeo, was growing a full beard. We saw the lad clean shave one morning after quarters and so — what could we say 1 Anyone that has been missing out on the Elimination Bouts that Mr. Ely has been conducting on the ship in preparation for the smoker that is coming up in Honolulu has been losing out on some real sporting affairs. It has been a pleasure to watch those lads out there, some of them not at all at home in the ring and others showing that they had been there before. Thanks to the careful supervision of the affair it has been well matched and the true sportsmanship of the real sailor man has been very prominent throughout. During the bouts same 'booing' was heard and it was stopped by the referee, Mr. Ely. It is too bad when the fellows in the ring are so sporting about the affair that the manager of the bouts has to stop and tell the spectators to show how sporting they can be. Lets not have it again. Vendetti, SClc, received the word that he has been placed on the list for CCStd, and Little Ocko wants to take this opportunity to offer congratulations in the name of the Blue Bonnet and the ship's company. May success be yours Van, and good luck. Is there anything to the story that was told to me about two of the prominent lads of the ship. Brady of the Exec's Office and Davis of Ship's Service, who are reputed to be going to get married on the return of the Rambler Ship to Long Beach. If its true we wish them luck, if not, well I guess I started something. Bucky Haratyk, Spud Cox'n, has definitely become duty struck as he was seen one evening lately under his bunk in the compartment looking for something. On being asked what it was that he was looking for he said (in his sleep), "Its right here, its just got to be, 'cause that's where I put it and if that celery is gone I'm gonna get somebody." All we can say is that the lad really has his mind on his work and that is a fact. Take it easy Buck, you'll cool off one of these days and be normal again. * * * * Rumor has it that L.B. Barricklo, better known as Bakes, is going out on sixteen years in the near future, and if that is so we will lose a well known figure in the Houston's commissary department. * * * * There is something funny about how come that Simmons of the Exec's Office force is seen every so often in the P. O's. washroom washing the blues that drape the form of his boss, Tom DeBri. What is the score there lads? Looks sorta out of the line of duty to me. * * * * Bud Adams has been telling Jasin- ski of the C&N boxing team that if he hears bells and so on it is not nec- cessary to crouch down and square- off. Bud has also told the lad that in a year or so it will wear off and he'll be O.K. but Jazz doesn't know what to think about it all, and I think it honestly has the lad from the radio shack worried. Don't believe all that Buddy tells you feller or you'll be going a- round like the kids on the fo'c'sle where he sits on the bitts and thinks up that stuff. * * * * The ship is losing some mighty good shipmates and it sure is tough to see some of them go. They are good fellows that have been here and now they are gone. We are losing a pair of good boys from the third and fourth divs., the Marler brothers. It seems that a person has to lose the good at all times though we seldom think of it that way when we get good shipmates. Happy days boys, and a pleasant cruise. Mary had a small gold watch. She swallowed it! It's gone. And now wherever Mary walks Time marches on .
