Transcript Volume III * ... s. s... 0 .. 5-.- 0... Enroute Balboa, C. Z., May 9, 1936 Number XVIII POLLYWOGS INCITE MUTINY The past week has seen several attempts on the part of the Polly-ogs to rise against the authority of the ancient and honorable shell­backs. The first of these incidents was brought about by the Shellbacks themselves in an attempt On their part to handcuff " Iron Man" Lee of the " E" Div. to the well deck hatch. Their attempt had succeded to the point where Lee's legs were hand­cuffed, and Lee himself was draped around the hatch, when the searing flame of revolt arose in the breasts of several onlooking pollywogs, who forthwith turned to on Lee's torment­ers and liberated him. The success of this mutinous up­rising evidently gave the Pollywogs confidence, because rater Zainfield', " an0d. Div. Shellback, was found tied a stanchion behind a catapult tower with his mouth taped to quiet his delirous moans. Wednesday, Hollingsworth, a high­ly respected Shellback of the V Div. was ignominously incarcerated in the Mezzanine in the Starboard hangar. Since this outrage there have been several minor outrages on the part of the Pollywogs. There has been much speculation as to how far this thing will be carried. Your reporter has learned from a Pollywog agent that the Pollywogs expect to culmin­ate these subversive activities by tak­ing complete charge on the Great Day. This agent further revealed that prior to these open activities the Pollywogs had been doing some work in the dark. For a Shellback meeting in the after flag office, a week ago yesterday, ( Continued on Page Two) NAVAL UNIFORMS OLD While the origin of naval uniforms is lost in history it is known that as early as 1603 King James required his ship captains to wear scarlet liveries richly em: bellished with velvet, silk lace, and gold embriodery. By 1748, however, even the seamen were wearing standardized colors. The first American naval uniform, says Path­finder Magazine, is believed to have been the green and white authorized by the Massachusetts council in 1776. The word uniform is derived from Latin words meaning " one" and " form." ..... POST OFFICE NOTES First class mail from Panama is 3c per ounce or fraction thereof. Airmail is 20c per half ounce or fraction thereof. All Airmail letters should be weigh­ed by mail clerk so that correct post­age may be applied. The arrival and departure of ships carrying mail to and from the U. S. is not yet known but more inform­ation regarding this will be obtained upon arrival at Panama. Airmail leaves Colon, C. Z. every Wednesday and Saturday. Time of closing on board ship will be made later. All letters, cards, etc., mailed in the Canal Zone or Republic of Pana­ma, must bear the stamps in which place mailed. U. S. stamps are good on board ship only. ? HOUSTON TO VISIT HOUSTON ? --::-- Slowly emerging from the status of " unreliable scuttlebutt" to that of " reliable scuttlebutt" is the rumor that the ship will make a visit to the ' city of Houston this summer. Your reporter has it straight from an of­ficer who talked with a party in Hou­ston just prior to departure on this cruise, that the party assured him that we would be in Houston, Texas during the latter part of August. Also, another senior officer was heard to remark that he was postive the ship would visit that city this summer. It will probably be hotter than blazes down in Texas in August, but of the city turns on the heat for us, as they did last time, the heat from the sun won't even be noticed. • II. NAVY MOTION PICTURES --::-- Our new men and also most of our " plank owners" may be interested in learning how Navy Motion Pictures are purchased and paid for. Each month, from twenty to thirty new pictures are selected and leased for the Navy, through the Motion Picture Exchange, Navy Yard, New York, for a period of four years. The cost is about $ 60.00 per reel or $ 600, on the average, per program. Two prints of each show are purchased, and then shipped around to the USS ARGONNE, who is the Fleet Ex­change. One print is circulated thru the battleships and the other thru the cruisers. From the fleet one print goes to San Diego for exhibition by ships and stations there. It then works up the west coast shore stations, and then goes to the Asiatic Station. The ( Continued on Page Four)
