Transcript NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY There have been several veiled threats, not so veiled at that, to the effect that this writer of odds and ends would be found among the miss­ing if he didn't cease getting the dope and giving the public the truth. In­asmuch as we cater to the public at large, also prisoners at large, and they demand the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, we say piffle to the threats and continue to satisfy. Artie Hand please note. The following questions were hand­ed in and we shall do our best to answer them. Q. When does the HOUSTON arrive on the West Coast? How long do we stay? Do we go to Frisco? In so many words what is our schedule? A. Hal Hal You find out and let us know, I got a gal out there too. ( Ed. Note:- See Schedule). There have been some very definite rumors to the effect that a certain red headed baseball team captain is going to take the matrimonial dive if we ever return to Long Beach. Don't tell anybody this, it's confiden­tiaL Seems that Westerfield has been lying again and that the fair one is making a long hard trip from Ii'l old New Yawk to the West. Did Horace Greeley mention women too? We have found out that " B" division is blessed with an intelligence opera­tor and an absent minded professor. Such a distinction for one division. The intelligent P. O. has for his chief of staff, operator No. 13. The pro­fessor went into No. 4 uptake and be­lieved himself to be in the radio shack. We heard a pretty fast one the other THE BLUE BONNET day about the respective merits of our buglers. The conversation ran something like this: Tar. " Why man, that bugler of the " N" division is so good that when he sounds ' Pay Call' it sounds exactly like a symphony orchestra playing " The Rosary." Marine. " Stop that line. When that Gy!' ene wraps his lips round his bugle and plays ' Mess Gear', I look down at my beans and say ' Straw­berries, behave yourself, you're kick­ing the whipped cream out of the dish." Could it be so? Dunn, PhMlc, went on leave in San Diego not so long ago and in order to make expenses he worked on the graveyard shift for the Corpse Min­ing Co., in the Coffin Mine, located in Dead Man's Canyon in the Funeral Range at the edge of Death Valley. Dunn says that in the near future he is going on a prospecting trip to the Devil's Playground, in Hell's Half Acre. Today we arrive in Houston, Texas, where it will be remembered by the old timers that a grand a glorious re­ception is to be the lot of the U. S. S. HOUSTO ITES. One gala time for the next five days. It is expected that many a resolution made with excellent intentions will be cast aside and dis­carded for the entertainments of the ' Fair and Warmer.' How many of these " Rebel Gals" roped and hog­tied some HOUSTON sailors after the last trip? Blacksmith, we are watch­ing you very closely and you too Romine. I'll sign off and duck those hunting for me. ..... COMMENDATION AWARDS The following named men were com­mended by the Commanding Officer at meritorious mast for their excel­lent, zealous, efficient and soldier- like performance of duty while assi~ ned as personal orderlies to the Pre~ ldent of the United States, Franklm D. Roosevelt, during his cruise in the U. S. S. HOUSTON from 1 July to 3 August, 1934: First Sergeant Albert T. Luck, Chief Orderly. Gunnery Sergeant Hylton S. Walshe, Sergeant Oliver W. 0stmeyer, Corporal Harold W. Webster Corporal Norman A. Terpsten. Page Three HACKIES COMMENTS Not much news this week from aft. With all this condition " Amuck" and " Bustle" going on, not to mention a distant relation by name of Condition the Third and Section the Fourth, the only way they'll come out of their holes is for the mess cook to holler " CHADON". Even Hogan's Alley answers the call of the wild. Speak­ing of Hogan's Alley, it's never been the same since Johnnie Ketner and Lipkie left. Used to have quite a breeze- shooting contest going on in the Alley with the old gang aboard. It is rumored that our number one policeman is going to be decorated with a gold badge, the lesser lights of his police force getting tin ones. In case you leave it in the washroom some evening, George, how much will we be able to hock it for? Don't tell us it's going to be fourteen carat solid. You've heard of such things as one substance counteracting another. Well we unbeknowingly put the equalizer on Bandie last week. Quite a nice write- up on him for his services to His Majesty The King, and we had to go and put him in our column and jest about his violin " G" string. For this injustice, our most humble re­gret and pardon to Bandie. No, Bandie, there have not as yet, been demands for your services from our last weeks advertisement, so you'll have to continue making your guard trips. Perhaps they didn't see our little write- up. You know the story about the S. O. B. It has just come to light this week that a certain personage was forcibly ejected from the Hauf Brau by the slack of his pants and for good reason, too. Seems he went around biting girls where they oughtn't be bitten. Shrewd detective work on the part of Hogan's Alley has failed to disclose the culprit. Next week after having conducted a full power run in Houston, Texas, we may be able to write up some good dope for this column. If not, we may be able to induce Mac to tell you his experiences as a parachute jumper, or mabe Tip on the subject of oratory If you've never heard him say " Ladies and Gentleman," you've missed some­thing. Too bad Shaw is not with us or we'd hear a darned good fish story or " Life on board a destroyer."
