Transcript NOSEY EWS by EV'BODY The Hie Nonnie- nonnie town has passed over the line and did I have a helova good time moochin' the dope. The head man saw me out at Buddies and was very disgusted ' cause I was so careless as to leave me notebook at home. ' sfunny but the guys saw me coming and you'd think we had a bunch of angels on board. Sobriety and propriety, me oh my. Don't know who the first man ashore was but I saw the last one aboard prove the Darwin advocation, with a healthy boost from the dock, do a twelve foot catch- on. The gangway " Corral" sure had its quota of last minute " I'll be sure to write, Honey" and who was the guy that osculated two fair re­bels, just before sailing? Arty Han I just can't keep out of this coIum. 1, that was a nice brown dress. A cer­tain ( jg) has proven his r: lnning ability and is a sure fire hit for the officers track team. How many min­utes does it take to run from the top of the road to the Well Deck, after Siren and Whistle have been tested? Has any body seen my white hat? Souvenier hunters galore. We nearly lost one of my book cases, as O: le to­mato tried to stick it in her purse. Shepard says that the proper way to come back to the ship after you give the gal friend your one and only neckerchief is to cut a shipmflte's diagonally in two. That' a good idea. Smith, EM, tried breaking the laws of gravity while dancing with a " dainty" Houstonite. Was his face red? Will somebody tell me what the Boy Gunner was doing with that gal friend. And I thought you were above that, Morse. 6000 guests said the clock on the Mainmast was wrong and 10,000 said it wasn't even runn­ing. We wonder if the Chaumont could T E llLUE s ' pp; y en: n': h hat t) fi. It', . of HJus. o: l. Scv 0.1 p~ r~~ IJ r. 1C if the.' vy Depahme: l h: l p l­ed a f" st 0 le.

Those Flag yeomen travel. Who is the newly mar­ried p:!: 1 a~ d ink man seen romancing with the II : l. lston school gals. And I unders. a: ld he was never going to deviate fro. l t 1C beaten path. Seems like there is two " mice" in that out­fit. Sharpe, Y3c, hasn't learned the finesse of the two and one game. Were those damsels boint up? Hawley found what he thought to be a nice Houstonite and discovered she had just left the fleet in Norfolk and was on her way to Diego. Is that justice? Ask Reynolds how he manages his affairs when four of them are on board at once. A lotta guys had to do some fast talking when the first conquests showed up and discovered the " true loves" examining new pas­tures. Spice can be very nice but sometimes variety makes it a little too hot. Kid Smith ccrtai ly crashed the new papers in a " nil e" way. Good publicity. Tomm:' Ey..

In the new navy, torpedo tubes o 1 the port side of the ship are used f •! ldon ship station after sun­down. It seems that the Blacksmith was tripping the light fantastic in Houston, having left his forge in Seattle. I wonder if the Senior Patrol Officer dreams of white hats. Inci­dently, what EM, 200 Ibs. went ashore with good intentions? It was noticed that the Gulf Brewery had been visit­ed. There should be a smoker pretty soon, between the fight talent in the form of a warbling quartet who crashed the pictures. The long and short of the Exec's Office go in for Ford coupes these days. We wonder if Macumber was " Whatta Man" in Houston. George Woolridge has final­ly turned Gigilo. Seems like a certain PhM is wailing because the first day wasn't last, or maybe it's the other way around. McGovern says that he is for bigger and better sick bays in a town like Houston. Burgess made a dame, it must be a good town. Tiny Rimmer says that soap does have its u es. Did Tip O'Niel find them thar wild c~ ts? Contois of the uTI" Division went to see his light 0' love while in Houston. He was get­ing alo: lg swell until her little daugh­ter c" a1~ h and said, " Mama, how oll l: l: l:: t I be before I can have a ri:; il 7" ,: lJ he didn't even wait for h: s h~~.

He threw one leg- up in the air and the bull went right on by, thinking he had gone up a tree. We welcome to the " S" division fold, a master of the old school of drag­in~, one Ostergren, storekeeper two piece from Wa hington, D. C.
