Since then the " Blue Bonnet" has been published regularly, except dur­ing the first nine months in the U. S. upon the HOUSTON'S return from the China Station. A large turnover in personnel took the editorial staff and the one printer, these being the contributing factors toward the ship's paper's temporary demise. The " Blue Bonnet", from the very first has always striven to be a real ship's paper in bringing to the fore the many happenings and activities in the HOUSTON'S colorful and proud history, the result being- today the " Dlue Bonnet" is considered one of the best among the ever increasing number of servic. e.. p. apers.
