Transcript HACKIES COMMENTS Imagine the surprise of a certain CWT when, on inquiring at Leo's for the sheriff, was informed that he was in a certain drug store indulging in an ice cream soda. Confidentially we also overheard another buttoned boy asking the CSK th€ price of blues. The bunks are squeaking from mis­use and, believe it or not, there are_ no late breakfasts. What is the. reason for all this reformation? During our recent stay in New York our " Top Kick" went to Hyde Park on matters of importance not divulged here. He has no comment to make. We welcome the new arrivals in the chief's quarters. We refer to the big shots of COMCRUSCOFOR. Anyone desiring the services of an excellent bandmaster but without band or instruments will do well to communicate with this ship. There is one floating around. ( Note) He broke his " G" string 20 years ago and hasn't been a good fiddler since.) Incidently there is a cornet in the lucky bag. SCENE: Chiefs' quarters. TIME: Noon. All is quiet except for the musical strains of steady soup- sipp­ing. Suddenly the steady ringing of the telephone. " Somebody wants to speak to the chief machinist's mate," speaks up the mess cook. " Which one" asks a CPO with a sense of humor. The messenger reported to the OOD the presence of a great deal of smoke in the starboard hangar and wanted to know if fire call should be sounded. lnvestigation proved that it was only Shanahan with his pipe lit oft'. Did you know our CBM is common­ly refered to as the Simon Legree of the side cleaners? The Gunnery Sergeant made his customary trip " ashore on duty" be­fore we departed from the yard. The old boy would have a reason to go ashore on duty in the Sahara Desert. It is rumored that our caterer has found a new use for Whiz metal polish. How come, Bill? Wednesday morning found a great demand for tomato juice - a certain marine and storekeeper being among those present. Who is the chief looking for gold THE BLUE BONNET in Nevada? Hawthorne or bust, George! Since our caterer left on leave, the pantry seems to have joined the nudist colony. Our stay in Houston, Texas, pro­mises to be most interesting if we are to believe all the accounts told by our flag chief watertendel\ See him for detailed information. Alarm clocks have made their ap­pearance in the quarters of late. Wonder why? FOR SALE IN STARBOARD HANGAR:- Shanahan's motto:- Nothing too large or too small for him to handle. The starboard hangar has for sale anything from paint pots to lifejackets, including two small gangways, and all kinds of lumber and fenders. 24 hour a day service. A side cleaner on hand to serve you. ' Phone 38. Famous last words: Six diamonds - by God. " Ducky." When do we get the back Mex pay, Tip? Jock. Who was the CSK who came into the mess room, circled the table twice then sat down and remarked, " Good ship, soup for breakfast." Q. Why do so many men stay clear of the HOUSTON? A. She is never home. FLASH: The Chief Jimmy Legs says, " the ship's paper sh~ uld be call­ed the P. A. L. We report III now and then." .. II. COMCRUSCOFOR NOW ABOARD Ens. R. M. Wilson are Communicat­ion Watch Oft'icers. The CHICAGO, regular flagship, is at New York for overhaul and will not be available for duty until the last of October. --_ --- The U. S. S. RANGER, Captain Paul Jones, was the first Am~ rican vessel to exchange salutes WIth a foreign nation. The exchange occur­ed in Quiberon Bay, France, on Feb­ruary 14, 1778. Captain Jones was extremely proud of his infant country and at first insisted on a gun for ~ n exchange with the French flagshi~. Only after strenuous argument did he consent to receive a return salute of two guns less than he fired for the Fr~ nch admiral. . The new aircraft carner RANGER is named after this ship. SPLIT ESSES I won my bet of last week when I predicted that Morgan would go to shore duty. For quite some time the deal hung in mid- air but finally on last Saturday morning he was able to get away. Cooley also gained his hearts desire when he was able to get paid oft' in N. Y. When last seen he was making tracks for the Bow­ery - I mean Bureau - to try for the L. T. A. School With the loss of these men, we are now fully qualified as an N. R. A. or­ganization, under whose terms it is the duty of everyone to provide as much work as possible for his fellow men. We have succeded to such an extent that each man now has three jobs instead of the customary one. We wish to welcome to our fold our new shipmates of the flag, and hope that they find their new hO a good one. However, I have already heard whisperings of how good the CHI was, so it seem:; l to be the old story of the two ships - the ODe you have left, and the one you are goine to. These flag sailora bid fair to be­come our Star Boarders, but will have to improve a lot before the, can oft'er Ski or Jory any competitiOA. The CHICAGO Unit needs no intro­duction, as they are a Unit of our for­mer Squadron, and it was like old home week while they were aboard. Many familiar faces, also a few new ones, and much rehashiDc of the old Hof Brau days in dear old San Diep. The plane of ComCruScoFor, which is aft'ectionally called the " Blue Goose" must be rather delicate ••• Three men on it when we only have three for all our planes ••• WeD, the old Cruise Ship can take it ••• Who are the two biggest leave hounds in the " V" Division, and why ••• It is rumored that one of them wears two broad bars • . • Cap't Billy has an injunction against Johnie Phelps, so we can't print his column called " Drippings from the Faucet . • .
