Transcript Page Four SPLIT ESSES The past week has been one of both work and play for this outfit. The work consisted mainly of flight oper­ations and the play was a mixture of Cabareting and " JAX" beer. I think that Houston almost got a few of us down for the count, especially the " mornings. after", but a good time was had by all. Possibly the greatest disappoint­ment to those who had never been here before, was the absence of Cow­boys, steers on Main Street and six guns. I only saw two men wearing ten- gallon hats. However, they still make ' em tough in this town, and those Texas gals sure can drink a mafl. under the table in short order. The feature event of our week's work consisted of a cross- country hop to Pensacola, Florida. The flight was led by Lieut.- Comdr. Ginder in the " Blue Goose" with Lieut. Felt, in 11- S- 5 as accompanying plane. Radio communications were maintain­ed by that Stellar, radio " Charlie" Noble. The planes were gone three days, but the actual flying time was approximately 11 hours. A stop was made at New Orleans going and com­ing, for gas and oil. Congratulations are due Lieut. ( jg) Miller on his recent marriage to Miss Dorothy Graham of Chevy Chase, Maryland. We hope that you will both be very happy. Also a word of thanks to Lieut.( jg) Hines for those scrump­tious seegars you put out on your birthday. We hope you have many more during the year. Shinney, is still the national drink as far as Florida is concerned . . . ask the boys who went on leave down there . . . it is rumored that many of the former members of the Asiatic Fleet are now doing time at Pensa­cola, Florida, and that it is a hard job to keep from getting married while doing duty there ... can you imagine anyone wanting to marry off " Charlie" Noble ... well, it almost happened ... ask him about it .•• " Abie" Kall mentioned that his re­cent trip to Venice was great, except he got there during the rainy season, and all the streets were flooded . . . he also thinks the Sahara Desert is a great beach, but too far from the water. •.... Send the BLUE BONNET home. THE BLUE BONNET ATHLETICS The basket- ball team began a pre­season practice to get the " feel of the ball" and tryout new material. Pros­pects are good for a successful season. A practice game was played Wednes­day against a YMCA combination. Many " snowbirds" were missed but as a whole the team played together and managed to edge out atop on the score. IF THERE ARE ANY MORE CANDIDATES GIVE YOUR NAMES TO O'BRIEN NOW. The Fall series of pulling races will take place October 20th at Guan­tanamo. Crews of boats are classed as follows: Selected Crews: Any enlisted man may pull or act as coxswain. First Enlistment: ( Does not include men serving on extension of enlistment.) Deck Force Any man not assigned to Engin­eers Dept. Marines Any enlisted man, U. S. M. C. may pull or act as coxswain. Engineers Any enlisted man in the Engin­eers Dept., may pull or act as cox­swain. No person can pull or act as coxswain in more than one boat dur­ing any athlet, ic year. The HOUSTON has somewhat of a late start but it is the finish that counts. Experiences gained now will help towards winning the Spring ser­ies. Practice will ' start on arrival at Guantanamo. Those interested see Mr. Harris or Mr. Self. Other sports on the way and it is the desire of us all that this ship show excellency in every department When the call goes out, all hands co­operate and we will go far towards winning the prized award. ' II •• .., PORTRAIT PRESENTATION Continued from page one of such an illustrious statesman and soldier. The portrait has been hung in the Wardroom where it can and will be admired by all who see it. Our most sincere thanks go to all those who have been concerned in the present­ation and we say to them that it will become one of our most cherished of treasures. USS Houston- 9- 30- 34-- 800. MARINE MOANS The staff of this honorable paper insists on using the term " moan" to describe anything in the way of con­tributions from the Marine Detach-' ment. We take great pride in never feeling in the mood for moans on any occasion and no matter what the pro­vocation may be. The visit of the ship to Houston will furnish most of the copy for this issue of the Blue Bonnet, and it would be entirely fitting for us to give our impression as well, to be in the vogue. Despite the fact that we were un­able on this visit to break forth in all the glory of our Christmas- tree uniforms, we managed to do rather well by ourselves. The detachment office was the scene of some very fruitful recruiting among the fem­inine citizens of the state of Texas. Ostmeyer managed to complicate even more, the already complicated list of Mme. Ostmeyer's to be. Webster was forced to decide between feminine appeal and dollar attraction. The dollar question probably won. The youthful White is reported have be­come rather addled, and used little or no judgment at all with the result that even his best friends had to cut him ( if a Marine can be said to be in the cutting class at all). The first sergeant managed too, rather nicely this time, the skirt in the picture in the office is very carefully covering the knees. Why? What is the market value of a Master six Buick? Ost­meyer's shipping over money will probably need the services of a first class inflator. • I." NOSEY NEWS us after a most successful cruise, for that foreign duty on the 3rd of Oct. Too bad' we couldn't ofler you the buttons before you leave us, Fox. Better luck next cruise. Who says Portland mail has stopped. Ask a certain SF whose initials are Godair. This is the first time this column has been able to announce a " Blessed Event." There is a new Movie Opera­tor or a Golfer going to show up soon and Brownie had better pass the cigars. Well, maybe it will be a fe­male tennis player. Congrats to you, Brown. I hear that Shouldice has a good shipmate in the Signal Gang Oh yeah! Stick around, gang, '
