What Ho, my lads, and here we are
again on the trail of the lads and a
grand etc. To begin with we wonder
just why this absent minded electrician,
put that pot of coffee on and
then ten minutes later, to his surprise,
finds out that there is no grounds. For
full particulars see " Dickey" Baker.
Then it comes to light that it being
ever so unlawful to import DOPE into
the Hawaiian Islands, O'Brien will
be transferred to the R. S., San Diego
until the return of the Houston. And
how these lads slay the wimmen with
their blue eyes and blonde hair, at
least that is what " Blondie" Meyer
tells us his sweet young thing from
Houston tells him, oh what a man you
are! " Dutch" Kleugel of the 1st says
the only reason he did not get married
while east was that he was too busydoing
what is what we want to know.
Nelson of the fantail group and Dotterer
of the " R" don't mind purchasing
the chow for the ranch, but they
would like to have a little to eat in
the end. See your local reporter in
regards to this item. Who is this big
bad man with a little service tryir. g to
attract attention with a few drinks in
him and then began to get underway
when the patrol saw him, oh my, wbat
a good suit of civies will do. It
appears that our dashing ship's writer
was having a very hard time collecting
those kisses for every strike
he made on the bowling alleys. Fpr
full particulars in how to mix and
when to mix, see DeBri on his famous
D.: r.' s. He claims it is the original
thmg. " Hoot" Gibson sure fell off the
wagon this time after he had been
the shining example for the gang.
H~ returns about 5 a. m., posts the
mId- watch sign, and says " never again."
Boatsie Pawlak is seen to be
cruising around after several weeks
THE BLUE BONNET
of inactivity. We will always wonder
just wbat it is that " Snarly" Joe has
over the gals that they caress him
with kisses and oh, such tender ones.
It was so touching to see those three
old salts all a- twitter when their best
gals came out to the ship to see them
Why a certain yeoman striker should
try to avoid his gal when she comes
out to see him and then put in for
special liberty to see her ashore is
more than we will be able to understand
for some time. A recently married
coxswain seems to have learned
the lesson not to frighten the missus
upon returning home at midnight. It
seems she just about took a shot at
him when he made himself known and
then to top it off, he arises at 4 a. m.
to have a few bracers. Much to the
woes of the editor, a letter comes into
my hands asking why G. ( Housekeeper)
Davis, Ml\ Uc, can't keep from being
insulted by his gal after he had
framed up on her with a shipmate,
now Georgie, is that nice, I'se asking
youse? ?? And now we have another
Golden Grainer in our midst, and that
is one Clements of the 5th, congrats,
old man, but where are the stogies?
We notice that Wimpy Steve is as
nervous as a Golden Grainer on a
ship anchored off San Clemente Island,
can it be that some fair young
heart has him in tow? Highstreet
still claims that the only reason that
he put in for the Quincy is that he
wanted to make the shake- down to Europe.
Weare under the impression
that there is a much stronger reason.
The second sect. is beginning to wonder
if they are the jinx section as
• every time the briney deep decides to
take a day off and get nasty, they
have the duty. Why is it that our
speedy CM1c wants to be called " Ever
ready" instead of " Chips." Just ask
Shaw. Who said that the new color
scheme on the planes was scorched
paint from recent maneuvers? Stinky
Davis long time resident of the fantail
says live and learn after he awoke
from a deep sleep minus all the
fish and he had broke a date to make
the' evening complete. We further
notice that one of Shannahan's side
cleaners bas what we would term
f the best platinum blonde mus-one

of having a Paul Revere Club in collaboration
with their present one. It
seems that Folta of the 1st does not
desire duy on a tug- boat after his
recent cruise on board one. And it
also appears that a certain black haired
yeoman striker has reformed. And
How!!! Last but not least, just why is
it that " Squeeky" Campbell can't get
away from t} linking he is still 12.
' SaIl ' till next time.
He was a wise sailor, and when
forced to apply for a bunk at the city
jail, he gave the name of TeHenepe.
" Give u your real name," ordered
the police sergeant.
" Well," said the wise sailor, " put
me down as Bill Smith, then."
" That's better," said Sarge, " You
can't bluff me with that TeHenepe

That over 3200 men have served on

that during one fiscal year there
was a 115.63' 10 turnover in personnel;

Since we have an unusual number
of whistling Pete's on board, the following
may be quoted for their benefit
" Whistling is prohibited aboard
all U S Naval vessels. This order

is enforced so that no somewhat similar
noise will interfere with orders
given on the boatswain's pipe.
