Transcript NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY This week was a most profiting week for the men of the press and we will have to unload to our hearts content of the doings of the lads a­shore and a very good, etc.,. To head the column we must inform you that our predktion that Clymer would take the step was right and it hap­pened last Sat. eve, well, how's about the stogies? Since St. Marie is back off of leave we are wondering who his toast of Broadway is since he knew so many while on leave. A well known seaman in the 2nd thought he was in the Charleston in Chefoo when he discovered he was in that widely known " Stillwells" in L. A. and he was putting on a good show for the gang. Just ask him! There is some doubt as to why Snyder of the 1st changed from the 808 in L. A. to that _ bright spot in San Pedro. Mitchell, the leading stoker of the Golden Grainers was quite surprised when to his a­mazement we had just anchored at Santa Barbara and not Long Beach. We further learn that " Wirebrush" ~ obertson is not getting married, Just collecting those pictures figuring that she might be among them. ( You ~ no~ '; hat I mean, those Golden ram pIctures) And again our silent Truesdale from the " R" Division " Frog" GOdaire to you took the, sweet young thing ho'me ' last Satur-d. ay m'ght and had all the good inten-tIons that goes with it in returning to the ship, but one of the ever pre­valent bar rooms inercepted his path and he awoke in the lumber pile close at hand. " Dickey Boy" Arthur who has several shades of nail polish, just swears that he" IS gomg to throw hI. S PoW~ r puff at this column, now ~ ou would'nt do that would youse? ? ? . oyle, that young but old looking EM m our midst, just about decided that THE BLUE BONNET the gas chariot is too steep and is in line for a swap. The best of the week comes when our lady killin' man, " DON" George, the fellow who gave away sweaters to the gals in Seattle, is all set to be a married man an? has four youngsters already, good gomg George!!! And then there is that married man from the foc'sle who says " Why shouldn't I come back for breakfast, I have to eat somewhere." When the big story of the sea serpent in the Wilmington Channel broke, we naturally had to put our best slueths on the job to as­certain wheather or not the Whiffle Diddy had come to life. " Denny" Dem­bach looks mighty fine after that three months in Diego and I gues a wide swath should be cut in these parts before long with him loose on the beach. Of late, Smith, D. L., of the fantail, has consented to be the body­guard of the gals, especially those in the WAVE. From good authority we learn that Head of the ships ser­vice store is playing with fire these days. Why is it that all these shieks have to change their names with the gals on the beach, if so see Hilden­berg and call him Colvin and see if he will answer. Terrible Terry says he is staying aboard for a while to cool off as his last affair was too torrid. What ho, he cried, and there we find our " Tobacco Chewin' Son of A­rizona" Fraser bloomed into full man­hood at the age of three days. What a man you are-- now we will tell one! Why don't you send this paper home? We are wondering what " Gunner" Brown of the Gunnery Office would do if gossiping was prohibited. They say its sometimes good to see, but not good to remember what you have seen. Tell us Brown? " Old Sorrowful" Kincaid would like to know who that dirty " so and so" was that stole his magazine while he was in the arms of sweet and pleasant dreams the other day on the work- be! 1ch in the lighting shop. And then we find that Kennedy is just forcing Brown to go ashore with him, so tha the gals won't be disappointed. Now youse guys should be careful, as the bulk­heads do resound. Time - 8 to 7,.. Day­Wednesday; but wasn't that too bad that we stayed out to fire, oo- se- me? Lemansky who is planning on marry­ing very IlOon bought Susan a $ 14 bottle of perfume and now wonders whether or not he should send her the Pare Three BOXIN' THE COMPASS . Div. Off.: " Elliot, did I not tell you if you were again tempted to drink, you must say, ' Ge~ thee behind me, Satan'?" Elliot: " Yes Sir, an' I did, an' he got behind me and pushed me right into that bar room." . The new " Scullery Maid" ( overbur­de~ ed with dramatic speech) upon bemg told to call the ship's barbers to the evening meal, exclaimed: " What Ho', despoilers of the gigilo, come hither to thy vesprian hash." If money could be borrowed as easily as trouble, some of our fast stepping sailors would be terribly round shouldered. Pemental ( attempting salty airs): " Yes, I took to the sea naturally. I was vaccinated with a marline spike." Fraser: " It's too bad you weren't vaccinated with an auctioneers gra­vel. The world would have been the gainer." Pinion says it is the hill which pro­duces the echo, and here we have lived all these years thinking it was the-- holler. Attention Golden Grainers Male fur seals keep watch over their harem ( 10 to 50 females) from April to July without food, drink or rest. The Mugwump' This creature is said to be one of the extinct birds that lived in Miss­ouri in days gone by, and it had a very peculiar habit of sitting on rail fences with its mug facing one way while its wump faced the other, and it also flew backward to see where it had been instead of where it was going. --~;- ­PER8.0NNEL ' Tis good news to learn that Fish­er, S2c., of the 3rd Division is recup­erating nicely from the emergency operation he underwent during the night plane attacks two weeks ago. Abbot, MMlc., is up and around once again after slipping on a wet ladder and fracturing several ribs. chit with the price on it. So thusly lads, we close our column for this week.
