Transcript NOSEY NEWS BODY ":\_ t Anchor" rO'. l~ ire is bcginnin~ to - how great re.- Jlls throughout the :; hip, the last traces of our recent Mare Is. vi:; it being just about a thing of he past. * * * * * * * * Why, you never even hear DOl'!; hel-ti saying " now when I va on the -" •: 1Il<! some 01 his COhOI ts even though a little late in falling in line a. e in the best of spirits nowadays Some " eem to thiJ'lk this 1300 liberty has been the cause. * * * * * * * * ' Tis said to be a fact the Pike h( l8 lost : J. very familiar figure in " Herb" Freeman s, nce he has been studying the brighter side of life out Pasadena way. * * * * * * * * Whal could cause a man to engag a room in a nice hotel in L. A. only to retul'll to the ship prior to mid- nite or the same day? In particular in­, lance it seems that the sailor lad had a lapse of memory to such an {'.- tent he could not remember the Bame of the hotel nor the street upon which it was situated. For better explanation see Dur vell or Arthur. * * * " * * • * " TIal'ly" Davis i galllmg udden hme in the way h handles nickles. Yeah! Oodles of ' em. His formula may he y;) ur fortune shipmates. * * • * * * * * Sukow, although 0 Ie of the " first a'ld l~ st boat" t) rpe at times, is hold­111~ himself in hand these days. He is sorel_ y tempted bUt I- llSI. St s I. t'IS a V. ll" tue b dIsplay such will power. " * * * • • • • _" speed" Dotterer is living up to lus handle quite aptly, we notice. Some say he I. S tapering off after a f, trenous fort~ · day leave. Now there may be a word of truth in that state­ment, but from past experience one would believe 1' t · IS a matter of tasle. THE BLUE BON ET Our latest sleuth ( MAA type) is in the market for a publicity agent so tis rumored. ' * * * • • • * • Since his recent transfer to the gal­ley, " Goon" Jones reports he has the most prodigious appetite. Now Jones let us in on the subject. ' * • * * * • • • Now that the Aviation Unit is ab­sent " Jocko" Machado and his stooge " K" BI'own are endeavoring to re-' cover from a slight attack of " wing ? appiness". They both admit frequent JOUl'lleys shore- side gave very little relief. • • * * • • • • Who said Lewis and Wellbourne of the fouled anchor club were trying to outdo the GG's? " They were jest limbering up them sea legs." Just ask ' em? Wellboul'lle admits he is thinking seriously of registering too. • • * • • • • • " Willie- Jr." Yates is leaving us , vith a sad pan all because of his frustrated desire to move a small portion of Sunny Cal. to the Ex­pedition with him. Be generous, Wil­lie, be generous! * •••• * * • A cat with its IJine lives should find all a bed of roses compared to the in­l, umerable lives the deck polisher needs. It is hounded to death only a few times on early week- days and a thousand times on Fridays. * • * * * * • • Who said " the smile of a GG" ( with his special liberty approved)? ? ? ? * * * * * • * • Among our new shipmates to be making the news these days is Coch­rane of the " S". It seems he is at­tracting wide attention among the fair daughters of the local village with that blonde mustachio. One never knows whom the Goddess of fortune may smile upon. Weare not all bless­ed vdlh blonde mustachios. • * * • * • • • - Sayonara • • PORT BILLS The avy Regulations require that all indebtedness in port be liquidated before the ship sails. All men should promptly settle their outstanding accounts on the beach. No man's record is helped by his failure to take care of his financial obligation-. ---- l) a~ e Th.. e.
