Transcript Pare Two THE BLUE BQNNET -: THE BLUE BONNET :- WHO REMEMBERS THE MILITARY GENTLEMEN --:;: 0*-- 150,000 people are born every day and 100,000 die every day. --* 0*-- , The only tate in the U. S. not not granting divorces is South Caro­lina. --* 0*- ­NEW SHIPMATES This past Sunday at 0800 Chaplain Francis Lee Albert of the Tennessee conducted a special pre- Easter Church Service in the port hangar. Because of the fact that the Houston will have no service on Easter Sunday, Chap­lain Albert took as his subject, " Im­mortal Life." In this sermon he gave very logical reasons why we can ex­pect a hereafter. Mr. Frank Hart, accompanied by Miss Peck on the piano, sang two solos, " My Faith in Thee" and " Cal vary." Both these numbers were muer appreciated by the large congrega­tion which attended. --* 0*-- Pike Flossy: " Is he fresh? Why, 1 had to slap him four times before I gave in." Last week the Machine Gun crews had their fling. Altogether they fired 3360 rounds of ammunition and credit is due to the strikers because the guns behaved perfectly. It was the first practice of its kil). d on this ship and showed the ship's company just how " Safe for Democracy" our " Home" is from an airplane attack. A few more practice runs of this type would whip our gunners into perfection. ATTENTION! Second Lieutenant Forest C. Thompson has returned to the fold to resume his duties as De­tachment Officer after having been the CO of the Marine Detachment on the USS Indianapolis these last three months. With him back and the De­tachment reduced to normal size, everything is looking right again. . Sergeant Earl S. ( Gear- shift) Ross has received orders to transfer to the Wee- Vee in the near future but is now developing the " Best Landing Force" in the Navy out of our humble selves. During the past week the Houston has not received many newcomers, but we take pleasure in welcoming Redd­ing, J. A., CSM, while we wekome Jerry Nagle, EM1c, who has been on the East Coast attending the I C . School, and Martin, T. A., F3c, who has been on the hospital ship Relief. --* 0*- ­CHAPLAIN ALBERT CONDUCTS SERVICE ON HOUSTON --* 0*-- Boot: " May I have a suit of blues?"

A Golden Grainer. --* 0*-- THE HOUSTON ( No. 3 Fireroom Thoughts.) t t ' j' The HOUSTON is a grand old ship For sailors far from home. Just like B part of one's own self Wherever he may roam. ( 1) What and where are the ' roar­ing forties'? ( 2) Which of the two great canals, namely the Panama and the Suez, took the longest to construct? ( 3) Name the different corps and their precedence in rank in the Navy. ( 4) What is meant by ' manning the yards'? ( 5) What State of the Union was the only one to have its own Navy? ( 6) How and when was the ' Star Spangled Banner' officially approved as the National Anthem of the United States? '( 7) What is the distinction made between: colors, a standard, and an ensign? One often wonders and asks ( Just why the Navy is 80 grand.' Ask any old salt and he'll say ' U's ships like HOUSTIN in Long Beach Bay.' Maje tically she plows the foam, While sea'!" ull. in her wake, Their heads in silent wonder shake At the monstrous thing aHoat. Four years ago this month the Houston's keen bow first cut the swift muddy waters of the Yangtze Kiang and Whangpoo rivers, visiting Nank­ing, the capitol of China, then return­ing to Woosung and thence 15 miles up the Whangpoo to Shanghai for the first time. Many are the humorous incidents recalled, that beset the un­initiated in the ways of the wily 01' ­ental. With the new flagsghip's. arri­val the honors and ceremonies were many and colorful with the ranking officers of all representative nations taking part. --* 0*- ­QUESTIONAIRE the ar­ation- * * 17 April, 1935. * W.

The Captain desires to express his thanks and appreciation for the fine performance and for the fine ap­pearance that the CI'ew and ship put up at th Annual Dilitary Inspection on Monday last. He has inspected many hips in his time nd has never seen a crew or ship that looked better than this ship did last Monday. The Division Commander and Commander Cruisers Scouting Force, Rear Ad­miral Hart, ~ xpre sed to the Captain his satisfaction with the Inspection. 2. As regards' to the Damage Con­trol Practice on Tuesday many minor and some major defects were found in the setting of Conditions Baker and Affirm. The Captain realizes, of course, that thit was our first Damage Control Practice and that all hands were more or less inexperienced in the matter. The defects found brought out one outstanding feature, namely a lack of thoroughness and careful inspection when setting Conditions Baker and Affirm. This defect can earily be corrected by the concenteat­ed effort of all hands an 1 the Captain belives that when the next Damage Control Practice is held a much bet­ter performance will be attained.
