Transcript NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY Due to the firing last Wednesday, there wasn't much time for nosill' around, but a little news came in from here and . there and we find that Pearce the Cox. made the statemem that you weren't supposed to hit the target, just come close to it. It has been learned from authentic sources that " Boats" Shanahan and " Pockets" Highstreet have joined the Jewish navy. Mahatma Ghandi has a real contender for honors in none other than a certain trumpet player in the band, and did you ever notice the facial contortions wlien he toots a high " C"? Rebel Kayse came hOffle an easy winner from Fish Point one evening and from the big hand he was given by the crew things wer~ ­Oh, well, ask Rebel ???? Slusarsky, BMlc., says, " from now on when the basketball team goes to Fish Point to work out, I will be there too." Oh yeah. The World Series broad.: ast might be sewed up on the beach by none other than Henry Ford, but our own Herbie has done well by all hands in bringing the series to us, and did you notice the rabid fans daily. If you even think you kpow baseball- just mention it to Weigand. Some one in the aviation gang was overheard saying that gas & pilled on deck was good for the oil Sp'lts, maybe so, but he evidently was not arOund the two mornings the l'oly­stones were going to eliminate £ aid gas spots. Terrio, the new CEM, looks fine in the new Hackie outfit, but there is a difference in the uniform,;, how about it, Chiefie? Oscar Hand is now in serious training, that 1<; gaining one to two pounds per diem; reason, he has suddenly discoverJ that the gals like him pleasingly plump. Just ask him. Steve Sivak THE BLUE BONNET has boasted of his immunity to wo­men, but that Leopard woman in Houston seems to have changed hh" good intentions. Hank Kennedy start­ed off as boatswains locker keeper by breaking out a coil of 3%" line full of *? ?:)? and was he red? Mc­Govern says, " first I have boils in Houston and then it is the ceremon­ial gangway in Guantanamo, what next? It seems that one of the Sharp yeoman from the flag office, having been partaking quite freely of the good old amber fluid, hired one of Cuba's alleged horses to take in the sites of Guantanamo City. Aftt;( stopping at the divers places to fur­ther refresh himself, he was sudden­ly stricken with overwhelming pity for the poor horse and proceeded forthwith to ride said hayburner right into one of the city's better known cheer dispensaries. Having dismount­ed, he demanded in no uncertain tone that the faithful animal be allo\" ed his just dues. This didn't go over so big with the inmates of the shanty and the sea- going Buffalo Bill was forced to take his plug and withdraw in defeat. He was also defeated in his attentions to the nag in another den of iniquity, but we won't go into that. If we don't get the Engineering " E" we surely should get one on that scuttle- butt, forward. Some ~ y says, " I wish they wouldn't make the drinking water so cold, it gives me an ache in me false teeth." Hmm, I wonder. It was rumored that a cer­tain Wardroom steward was ashore in some town, some place and was referred to as a certain kind of a spud, whats the dope? A certain dashing ship's service operator was arrested lately and the following con­versation took place at the M A A shack: CMAA: " How do you plead?" SSO: " I plead guilty and waives the hearing." CMAA: " What do you mean, ' waive' the hearing?' " SSO: " I mean I don't want ', 0 hear no more about it." And so with this last comment, I will close, " Our girl friend calls her dog­gie " Broker"- because he's so active on the curb. •••• Every man thinks he has wonderful self control because the woman had the last word. Page Three HACKIES COMMENTS They tell me that Hackies Com­ments have missed the last two issues of the BLUE BONNET. My, how time flies. Won't, be long before we'll be seeing Long Beach bre~ kwater again and what a welcome sight it'll bel To really appreciate California is to be away from it for a time and com­pare it to other climes. Two of our shipmates left last week for parts unknown: Richards and Kall. Smith, CWT., also left on an extended furlough into the wilds of Wisconsin. " Ducky" Richards had quite 1\ re­putation as a bridge player. ' J'o quote Shannahan, he ranked among the rankest. Bill Rader relinquished his job as mess caterer to Doc Kreuger after a year or more of devoted service to the mess. The only fault I find with Doc's catering is that he makes the most terrible coffee. Instead of say­ing " Pass the coffee" you now !' ay " Pass up the hot water." No offense Doc. Oct 0 bel' T wei f t h, i s C 0­lumbus Day, and all ships having chaplains · on board ' viII have had their chaplains deliver an address on the subject of Columbus. If the First Ser­geant Luck were to speak on the sub­ject, he would probably tell us that Columbus used to be a marine. I asked Diggens if he had anything to say for the column and he declined by saying that he lives in a glal! S house and must'nt throw stones. Well. that's something worth thinkin~ a­bout, and speaking of mottoes, how's this one: " We seldom get something for nothing and how long must we live before we discover we are getting no more than we are willing to giv~." How many times have you heard: Luck -' Any mail for the devil do~ s? O'Neal- That Dutchman. Beary - When's pay- day? Rader - Son- of- a- bugger. Walsh - Yowsa. Michell's peculiar laugh. THAT'S ALL. ••• Captain ( To guilty party at mast): Now in the future you must go. straight. Understand what straight means? A. O. L.: Yes, Sir. Without ginger ale, sir.
