Transcript NOSEY NEWS ~ ' BOUT UJiJi, U EV'BODY -- -=- San Clemente, even though away from the favorite haunts of our home­guard Houstonites, is still a favorite anchorage for many of our crew. The would be Izzaak Waltons have not had their usual luck but they started out well prepared. The first evening at anchor found the incenerator going full blast. Questioning revealed the boat deck lads were intending : to have a good old fashioned fish- bake ­but - the fish wouldn't oblige. Wide­tick of the " s" was first on deck with his equipment but seemed to know very little in the art of luring the finny inhabitants of the deep. * * * * * * * * Seeing so many of their shipmates unsuccessful, and lacking the one great asset of all good fishermen, the inventive minds of the machine shop devised a novel method. Their solu­tion: Simply install a reel on the chuck lathe, rell out sufficient line and when a bite is registered just start the lathe. ' Tis reported the sail­maker was too busy to furnish a hammock too. * * * * * * * • Our fears concerning a shortage in the ranks of the GG's seems to be unfounded when we learn Henry, GM1c is working in the interests of Dan Cupid. ? ? ? • * * • • * • .. The Swede of the gunnery office crossed us up this time when he did decide to wait the required three days in California. • • • • • • • • We do hope Guard, the new 1st. Lt. Yeoman does not get the wrong idea of our fair ship. Being a newcomer he must wonder at those choice poli­tical conversations every evening. Possibly he does not know the Gigilo Club holds forth there. THE BLUE BONNET Chimelewski, better known as the " Mad Russian" of No. 2 Turret is slowly but surely coming back to bat­tery these days. It seems that South American heart affair really did up­set the lad. * • • • • • • • The " Goon" of the Galley, Jones, reports he is now a full fledged mem­ber of the GG club and hereafter wishes a reserved seat on the ama­tuers' thwart in the first boat, daily. • • • • • • • * Sprague, WT2c is a budding pro­spect for the club. How do we know? Any man who would sit up till the wee small hours reading a book on " What every young husband should know" could be preparing for but one thing in life. The lad is very secretive about it though. * • • • • • • • Hanna of the " N" is about to be­come famous since his recent at­tempt to institute a new angle in ob serving. His method is somewhat obscure but it is apparent you must wear your uniform inside out to ob­tain the desired results. We should have more info on this new fad soon. ••• * •••• It is encouraging to note the Ath­letic Spirit is perking up in certain parts of the ship. Support is best tonic possible for your teams. Get behind them shipmates. The Cruiser Iron- Man is the trophy which has always eluded the HOUSTON. Sure would look nice on this ship. * * * * * * * * Last minute reports says Schrumm has changed his mind and will not even consider the thought of joining the club for at least two whole years. What will power the man must have. * * * * * * * * The fact that the American League pennant seems to be sewed up has , not put the damper on our baseball en­thusiasts in the least. We understand Crego of the " E" is running Borghetti a close second in picking ' em daily. Let's hope there are no weak hearts among these lads. * * * * * * * * It was rather surprising to hear " Maxie" Mains and " Dinkins", both tried and true GG's, bemoaning the fact liberty was up at mid- night last Sunday. Just U ;;:! c how it will be next Spring. Page Three. Just why Ellison of the 4th should have some " Mum" in his possession is beyond conjecture. These moderns! • • • • • • • • Meeting that girl in Portland has done things to the " Gink" of the Exe­cutive Officer's Office. The youth has actually invested in a zipper bag. Could this have a hidden meaning? * * * * * • • • We are happy to announce Nier re­turned from leave none the worse from that spla h of publicity re­ceived in his home town. It must have been his big moment when he told newspaper men how it was a greater thrill winning the marble champion­ship than eeing things and going places on the good ship HOUSTON. The lad is po sibly still a mere youth. • • • • • • • • We were shocked to learn that the frivilous " tugboat" man, McCormick is now masquerading about ship as Queen of the Mates of the Garter club. He apparently has a weakness for garters, the louder in color the better. * • • • • • • • The fresh water King reports we have one " E" practically in the bag since he has been saving so much fresh water lately???? • • • • • • • • Speaking of marble games, Salmon of the 3rd says he is one of the famous southpaw champs. Wouldn't it be just too ducky if someone would arrange a tournament for those of our ship­mates still in their boyhood! JOB Of the fifty- six: ; igners of the De­claration of Independence, the signa­ture of John Hancock wa the largest, and it is said that he remarked at the time that he was going to put it there plain enough and large enough so that King Charles could see it. That is where the famous " John Hancock" saying comes from. We have all heard some time or other: " Here, put your ' John Hancock' to this letter or on this paper." During the War of 1812, Robert Fulton blew up a ship in New York harbor with a torpedo launched from a submarine. .. . Desk Sargeant: " You'll have to bring someone here to identify you. Have you no friends?" Lewis: " No Sir, I'm a Bo'sun's Mate."
