First of all we find that they are using powder puffs in the forward engine room bilges. The boys must keep up appearances. George Wool­ridge was loking forward to many a piece of cake while in the big town. Was she a good cook, Georgie? The old story of love ' em and leave ' em was reversed by a Seattle girl recently, and with disastrous result~ to the heart of a tall, dark and hand­some ??? yeoman striker in the Log Room, no names.

Continued on page four KINDERGARDEN STORY Continued from page one There have been several shifts since our last issue. Comdr. L. S. Pamper­in has left us for duty at Philadel­phia and Comdr. Eldredge, our Navi­gator, has assumed the roll of First Lieutenant. Comdr. C. N. Ingraham joined us- at Brooklyn, after a brief sojourn at the hospital, and now takes over the Navigation and Communi­cation Departments. Comdr. Ingra­ham's last duty was District Commun­ication Officer at Pearl Harbor. We welcome Comdr. Ingraham, bid fare­well to Comdr. Pamperin and hope they find their new duties pleasant. Lt. ( jg) T. C. Thomas, our Com­munication Officer, was detached in Hampton Roads last week. He has been ordered to Asiatic Station and leaves San Francisco for Manila on the Dollar Liner, President Monroe, September 28th. Happy cruise there, and remember us to the old pals we left behind last December. .' 1'. You Democrats may have the Army carry the mail, but don't you dare let the Navy start delivering the ice.

It is seldom enlisted personnel have an opportunity of this sort and it is to Lawrence's everlasting credit that he took over the job. The band, during the Presidential Cruise performed . royally- we'll miss their music. Congratulations on another job well done and we are proud to have Bandmaster Lawrence for a shipmate. There was a certain Mr. Jones, or Mr. Doe, if you must, who travelling along the California coast one night suddenly ran into a fog. He crawled along for an hour or so when just as his patience was getting the best of him a car whizzed by. It was ob­vious the driver of the passing car knew the road so Jones, in order to save time, speeded up and followed the tail light of his leader. After some time, Jones' confidence steadily increasing as every turn in the road was safely negotiated, the red light disappeared. Thinking that he had fallen too far behind, Jones pushed Ens. R. N.

N., _ tin Olrieer. Sept. 8, 1934. The Ec..' itor, BLUE BONNET: Within the next two hours I will leave the good ship HOUSTON for the USS CALIFORNIA. It has been m~ leasure to have spent th~ past fuurteen days as a passenger from San Diego to Hampton Roads. I can safely say that in my twenty- four years of Naval Service I have served, and made passage on a great many ships of our Navy, but none have been as pleasant, and as happy as the past two weeks. Never have I seen a clean­er or snappier ship. All hands work­ing together and doing their best to make the passengers feel at home. I have read, and written about " Ship's Pride" and " Ship's Spirit" for years but not until two days on board the HOUSTON did I really see the meaning and hear it talked a­bout. I am glad to have been able to have made the trip on the " Float­ing White House" and will look back on it as the happiest cruise I have made in the Navy. Thanking you all and with the best of luck for future records and a still more " happy ship" Harry S. Morris, TM, USN. The letter herein reprinted speaks for itself:- Lt. < ie) J. B. Berkley - Editor. • -: CONTRIBUTORS :- " Ship's Pride" and " Ship's Spirit" are qualities that make or break a ship. There have been ' grOWls' about few liberties, about our cooks, about lack of cooperation,- where do they lead to? Our schedule has been and is a hard one. Take another tuck in that belt, we're all in the same boat. Think of Panama, San Pedro, and the good things in the offing. But if you have a legitimate complaint, take it to your division officer, or officer of the deck and he'll surely cooperate. Don't take it out on your shipmates - after all, you know, you may be wrong. Lend a hand on the oar and going will be so much easier.
