Transcript Page Two THE BLUE BONNET -: THE BLUE BONNET :- BOOK REVIEW SPLIT ESSES ..,.. ...... 13 October, 1934. Lt. Oe) J. B. Berkley - Editor. -: CONTRIBUTORS :- PHILADELPHIA was held ~ aptive; by the Tripolitan pirates for nineteen months. ....• Mother ( To her sailor son): Son, where in the world did you put your father's glasses? Sea 3c.: Away. Mother: Yes, I know, but where­where a, way? Sea 3c.: Two points off the star­board bow. Owing to the acute shortage of Camera Guns in the Cruisers, this unit has been ordered to complete the Practice by 13 October, in order that the guns may be used by the SALT LAKE CITY and INDIA ' ­APOLIS. It is expected that by tr. e time this goes to press, we will be counting our scores, and we houe with a happy grin. • During the past week while the ship has been engaged in Battle A. A. Practices, we have been plugging along with our own little bit of gun­nery. The planes have been catapult­ed each morning after getting under­way and picked up in the . evening up­on anchoring. The planes and the crews have been spending most of the time on the beach awaiting the ar­rival of the ship. Quite a bit of prac­tice in night taxying and recovery operations has been obtained, owing to the fact that the ship has not been in the habit of coming to anchor un­til after dark.. It is with regret that we lost Chief Ordnanceman, the well known " Abie" Kall, last Sunday. He was ordered to the PENSACOLA for transportation to Hampton Rds., to be paid off. Good Luck; Old Boy, Old Boy. In return we welcome to our Unit and the ship, MacNesby, AOM1c., who has just completed a tour of shore duty at Pensacola, Fla., anll was recently ordered by Our Father which ar't in the Bureau of Navigat­ion, to join the working men at sea for a period of four years. Sparky -" I ain't no bIinkinJ nursemaid. I'm a radioman!" Wifie - " Hush up - you're going to be a watertender and like it '" * * * The original United States Navy Regulations were taken almost word for word from the Governing Regula­tions of the British Navy. The War against Tripoli was car­ried on by a U. S. squadron under Commodore Richard Dale, who had been Paul Jones' chief officer in the battle between the " BON HOMME RICHARD" and the " SERAPIS". * * * * * * The slackness with which the War with Tripoli was conducted during the first year was partly excusable by the fact that enlistments in our Navy at that time were made for one year only. In May, the Boy of Tripoli, jeal­ous because the neighboring pirati­cal states of Algiers and Tunis had made a more profitable bargin with the United States than he had, de­clared war against us. * * * KNOWING THE NAVY .' 1 .. If you haven't read about that lov­able old character that was so ably portrayed by the great Marie Dres­sler in one of her last pictures, you want to get hold of " Tug Boat Annie" as soon as you can. The female tug­boat skipper that fought and argued her wat up and down the coast from the Canadian border to San Pedro is a personality that everyone will en­joy reading about. One of her sayings I'd like to quote was one that she made after her first mate told her she was sweating like a horse, and she retorted, " Horses sweats, men prespires, but ladys only glows." I The first engagement in the War with Tripoli was between the EN­TERpRIsE and the TRIPOLI, two evenly- matched armed schooners. Cap­tain Sterret handled the ENTER­PRISE with consummate skill, forc­ing the TRIPOLI to strike her colors after three hours of continuous fight­ing, in which the pirate lost 20 men killed and 30 wounded, while the American had not a single man wounded and sustained only slight material damage. * * * The first naval school for midship­men of the U. S. Navy, strange as it may seem, was conducted in the pir­ate state of Tripoli. It was conduct­ed by the captain of the captured PHILADELPHIA, Captain B a i n­bridge while the crew of the U. S. S.

Brown, EMlc Joe R& zlaft, SIc Getting out a paper is no picnic: If we publish original matter, they say we lack variety. If we publish things from other papers, we are too lazy to write. If we stay on the job, we ought io' be rustling news. If we don't print contributions, we don't show proper appreciation. If we do print them, the paper is filled with " junk." Like as not some fellow will say we swiped this from some other paper. Well, WE DID! How about some division notes? * * * PEP TALK There is a time and place for every thing. And according to an old say­ing, " All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." These apply to athletics on bo: trd ship. A time to work, a time to play, and a time to support the teams. The work must be acomplished. There is a time for that. There are gameH to play and to win. There is a time for that. In addition there is the time required for practice. Everyone has time to watch a' game. How mallY have time to double up on the work while the teams are practicing??? A time to work. . . This m" ans all hands, including the teams. Work for and have the snappiest ship ill the Fleet. A time to support the teams Not only with leather lungs but with a willing spirit to double up while the teams are practicing. A time for play. Attend the athletic events, win them, relax, and play the game yourself; with the teams, with your shiprnate~. and for the service. A weekly publication publisbed by the yip'. company of the U. S. S. HOUSTON, Captain W. B. Woodson, U. S. N., Command­ine and Commander F. D. Manock, U. S. N., Esecutive Olficer. Did you know that any service man if he so requests, may be buried in the Arlington Cemetary?
