Transcript ~ or Page Four THE BLUE BONNET USS Houston- 9- 15- 34- 800o ...... • • * • • • ....... .... BEEFS and SMIRKS The Navy ain't what is used to be. ( Ed. Note: It never was and never will be what it used to be.) The PENSACOLA has an electric deck scrubber, the HOUSTON yeomen have a small polisher to shine their desk t~ p~, the metalsmiths have a spray gun to paint with, the general mess has paper napkins, and the Bos'ns have a IOoospeaker. * * * A Scotchman crossing the ocean proved to be a bad sailor and went to see the Captain of the ship to see if he could do anything for sea sick­ness. " Have you got a dime?" asked the Captain. " Yes," replied the Scot. " Well, hold it between your teeth during the trip." Joe Blow's ' beef' is hereby acknow­ledged. Any more feel like you, Joe? Diplomacy did not permit the print­ing of your story this time. • • • The Exec's, Gunnery and First Lieutenant's offices have been juggled about to make room for the flag. Con­sidering the amount of work to be done the ' move' is almost complete and we should be able to find our way about - soon. Of course several parties will miss their tailor- made calking mat. O. O. D.:- Coxswain, don't shove off till I say " shove off." When I say, " shove off," shove off. " Shove Off." There seems to be an apparent disregard of sane rules of conduct among the crew. A few facts in re­gard to this would be timely. Sitting on bitts, standing in waterways, lean­ing on lines and throwing cigarette butts on wooden decks are not helpful towards the ship's appearance. Those white life lines give the ship a fine appearance, while clean,- but that is a job, keeping them clean. The night watches on deck could be more care­ful with night rations- crumbs are usually greasy and leave spots on decks. To many men use the spit kits for purposes other than the one in­tended. Strange how many men suddenly discovered relatives they had to visit on our last visit to New York. Blood's thicker than water they say. ..... .....~ STOKERS NOTES Well lads, here we are headed south again and that good old port of Houston, Texas, staring us in the face. The black gang is beginning to be hurt again, transfers coming up _ right and left. Wilson, WT2c, to Salt Lake City for duty; Bustinza, WT2c also to the Salt Lake City. Williams, F3c, headed for good old Guam. The famous souvenier hunter from the Log Room was paid off and is now headed for the good old hills of Tennessee. He says it's several days by ox- cart back to his hide- out in the hills. Weare off with a fine lead on a good score for the month, 125.0 to date . Let's keep it up. incline at the dock, preceding the Captain. As he made the last step, he slipped, fell on his and getting up turned to the Captain, without cracking a smile, said, " Look out, Captain, it's kinda slippery." It probably was. This is no reflection on the Engin­eers but then--- At one of the recent inspections, the Captain had just completed the inspection of the engineering spaces and turing around to the Engineer v Officer complimented him:- " A very good looking engineroom, - as a ( w) HOLE." Maybe we didn't hear it correctly, but that is what it sounded like. When seeking information or ad­vice from Macumber, our able ship's writer, always begin your inquiry by saying " I would like to know as follows." He loves the expression. Who is the electrician storekeeper in the Log Room who was playfully collecting souvenirs in Norfolk last week and found out to his sorrow the people in Norfolk have absolutely no sense of humor at all. Well, if the writer of this column is alive next week, more dope will be forthcoming. Better be good, we get our man. NOSEY NEWS KINDERGARDEN STORY the accelerator pedal to the floor­boards. Suddenly there was a loud crash.

Imagine our surprise one day last week to see a certain printer striker being led around Central Park by a Police Dog. Good looking dog too. Snarfy Joe, the crooning mail man, has been buy­ing Champagne again. Those old Asiatic habits still remain. Joe says " Prices in Greenwich Village differ from those in Shanghai." Was it for the girl who called you ' cinchie win­chie", Joe? Arty Hand now has a copyright on the name Arthur Han­sel, to be used by females only. Ro­mine wants a coast to coast hook up, from Seattle to New York. Has any one ever seen Breidecker not chewing on a box of matches. We understand that Baker was singing in the rain in Norfolk. Does this have anything to do with a sudden desire for foreign dtitY? The New York Telephone Company declared a dividend for the first time in five years, after the HOUSTON left the Yard. We un­derstand that HOUSTON Nite at the Marine Canteen was a whale of a big success. We wish to render thanks to the obliging bar tender, who had the 12- 4 on the Main Gate. The mail from Portland continues to trickle in, but it is only a trickle. Here we come, Houston, Texas. Brown in the Gunnery Office makes the statement that he met " The Queen" this time in New York. This makes plenty of Queens in his kingdom Rosoloksky has been talking the boys into inter­esting circumstances once more. This time Phillips, Y3c., succumbed. One recruit was heard saying: ­" My, what a storm, and I don't even feel it. I know I'll be a sailor." During the course of our small bore parties on the fantail, " Wild Bill" Wilson ambled over one after­noon to show the boys how to shoot. After a few shots he proceeded to adjust the sights. Lt. Thompson, spy­ing the " expert" yelled at him: ­" Leave those sights alone. That rifle shoots alright." " Sir," answered Bill sincerely, " ac­cording to my eye, this here gun air shooting low." Whereupon, Lt. Thompson took the gun in hand and cut out the bullseye without changing the sights. Did we blush.
