Transcript Pace Two -: THE BLUE BONNET :- .... A weekly publication, published by the ship's company of the U. S. S. HOUSTON Captain W. B. Woodson, U. S. N., Command­inc and Commander F. D. Manock, U. S. N., Executive Officer. Lt. ( jg) J. B. Berkley, Editor. Ensicn c. J. Macken:< ie, Ass't. Editor Associate Editors R. W. O'Brien, BMlc Jack Holt, Sic. -: PRINTER :- T. B. Razlaff, Seale. 6 April, 1935 * * * PEP TALK During the past month or so, in their contributions to the " Blue Bon­net," a good many men have shown considerable talent along literary lines. It has, therefore, been decided to have each Division or group of divisions be responsible for the publication of one issue of the paper. The plan is for each division, begin­ing next week, to collect all the ma­terial for its issue and to edit that weeks issue. They will be assisted by the regular staff; but, the division is primarly responsible for collection of material and editing. Some of the divisions are too small to handle an issue by themselves; hence, it has been suggested that the following divisions will act as a unit: Engineers; Navigation and Comm.; First, Second; Third; Fourth; Fifth, and C& R. The Bo't's'n mates or leading petty offi­cers of each division will draw for the week of their issue. Each division should elect one man to coordinate the material and act as editor- in- chief for that Division or group. For more detailed information, see one of the staff. The material should be in the form or poems; short- sl ort stories; jokes; editorials; past history of the division, bringing out any achievement of that division as in regard to winning of cups, etc.; and any current news. Right away the howl is going up that we have no talent; but that is not so as various contributions have shown. Let's get behind this and see which division can put out the best papers. Let's see who the big " scoops" are. Remember this is your paper so get busy getting your material to­gether. --; 0;- ­Send in your Contributions!! THE BLUE B() NNET ODDS and ENDS When the Navy recruit climbs into his hammock he can have pride in sleeping in a 100 per cent American bed with a background of 443 years. In the second letter that Columbus · wrote Queen Isabella, he told of the Carib Indians weaving a net out of grass, which they hung between the trees for a bed. The natives called this bed a hamaca, and this is the origin of our hammock. The recruit's hammock is made of canvas. This word also has an ancient origin. In the early days, all sails and ropes were made of hemp. The Latin word for hemp was " cannabus" and from this, the old time English derived the word " canvas." England is naming her new 9,000 ton cruisers after English towns. She will have a Southampton, Glasgow and Birmingham. A destroyer lengthens itself from six to eight inches when it speeds up to thirty knots. This is due to the pressure of the water pressing in on both sides. The largest fish ever caught by any method was a whale shark, weight 26,594 pounds, off the Florida coast in 1912, having been harpooned by Captain Charles Thompson, off Knight's Key. It was 38 feet long and had a girth of 18 feet. Russia leads the nations of the world with active organized military forces of B30, noo, and a trained re­serve of 15,380,000 totaling 9.79 per­cent of the total population, as com­pared with the United States per­cenage of 0.35. When touched with a feather, nitrogen iodine will explode. During naval target practice in the Pacific near Santa Monica, Calti., windows were broken by sound waves in Bakersfield, eighty miles inland. On the other hand, no sound from the guns was heard in Los Angeles, only twenty miles from Santa Monica while at Pasadena, ten miles farther inland there were slight repersussions and doors shaken. Dr. Beno Gutten­berg, geophysicist of California Insti­tute of Technology, explains this phe­nomenon with the statement - that the sound waves travel in an arc similiar to that described by a shell. The NEW SHIPMATES In addition to many new faces a: mong the enlisted personnel, the W. O. Mess has recently acquired three new officers: Carp. C. J. Kalb; Elec. E. H. Wallace and Pay Clk. D. E. Fay. New men on board are as follows: Johnson, A. W., CSK Vendetti, N. J., SClc Rizer, MMlc Senger, R. J., MM2c Taylor, R. J., Cox. Bitzelberger, T. J., Cox Black, E. P., F3c Small, A. J., S2c Whatley, C. D., S2c Wicker, R. E., S2c Campbell, W, M" S2c Drover, R. M., S2c Boris, J., S2c Chase, H. E., S2c Hansen, P. A., S2c Jackson, D. G., S2c Krecklow, R. A., S2c Lattiolois, B. J. S2c Micheal, E. D., S2c Shillito, A., Jr., S2c We heartily welcome you to the good ship Houston and wish a pleas­ant and successful cruise. We also welcome back Dembach, R. J., EMlc, who has been attending the Gyro School in San Diego; Myers, W., SClc from the Cooks and " Bakers School in San Diego and Zeitifuss, W. G., Bug2c, who has been to the Naval Hospital, San Diego. course of the waves being curved by temperature changes in the strato­sphere. A given set of conditions may cause the waves to be reflected sharp­ly down to a small area on the ground far from the source of the sound. A man falling from any altitude with a parachute pack attached never attains a speed greater than 118 miles per hour and does not lose conscious­ness. No United States Man- o- War has ever mutinied or been in the hands of mutineers, while in other Navies whole squadrons and fleets have mu­tined. The Marine Corps has never ex­perienced a mutiny of any description, and throughout its existance has al­ways been conspicuous for its ad­herence to its motto, " Semper Fidelis."
