Transcript NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY 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 0 . " 11 taches we have ever seen, but It WI b me time before it is visible to e so ' d the naked eye. With all these ml - . ht arrivals the staunch members mg , h'nk' . of the Golden Grainers are t I mg Pace Tbree 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 stuff." --* 0*- ­DID YOU K OW That over 3200 men have served on board the Houston since commission­ing; that during one fiscal year there was a 115.63' 10 turnover in personnel; that there are about 40 of the original crew still serving on board? --* 0*- ­WHISTLING 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 not intended to prevent happy men from showing their contentment, but is enforced so that no somewhat si­milar noise will interfere with orders given on the boatswain's pipe. --*-*- ­QUESTIO A farmer wanted to plant 19 trees in 9 rows of 5 trees each. How did he do it? Answer next week. --*<>*-- AUG ST ACOPS IRO fA With a grand total of 324 points in all the athletic competitions for the year, the Augusta competitors walked off with the " General Execl­lence in Athletics" Trophy, fondly called the " Iron Man". The SubRon 5- Pigeon unit with 206 points beat out the Black Hawk- Paul Jones out­fit ( 198 points) for " also ran" posi­tion.
