Transcript Page Two THE BLUE BONNET THE BLUE BONNET 6 October, 1934. . II. The first step to knowledge is to know that we are ignorant. - Cecil. During the hilarities in Houston, Texas, we failed to mention that seventeen men took the examination for' Chief Petty Officer, We wish all these candidates the best of luck and hope to see their names on the list for the " buttons" very soon, EXAMINED FOR CHIEF ...... ..... GROWLS During the past week there have come to this desk a few minor com­plaints that are worthy of reprinting and we feel that a little consideration from all will help clear matters up and mutually aid in the makingof the ship a little better. The first is relative to the Engin­eer's Washroom. " Owing to the fact that we have only one washroom for our use, and the large number of men in our department, the hot, dirty work required of us, the large amount of daily laundry and that a bath is im­peritive after each watch below, it is in all fairness that we are asking for a break from the rest of the ship's company. How about it?" We agree that the situation is ra­ther cramped, especially on field days and before Lower Decks inspection. When one or more washroom is closed it is necessary for all hands to use the remaining, but during times when they are all open, let's give the Black Gang the break they ask for, they are doing a good job for the ship as a whole. The second is in regards to the mad rush around the mess tables after Mess Gear has sounded. The com­plainant states that it is unfair for one compartment to be kept clear and the others piped down early. The Master- at- Arms are doing their best but wholesale cooperation is needed. KEEP THE DECKS CLEAR UNTIL PIPE DOWN. And last but not least it is request­ed that the ladder in the recreation compartment and those leading from cabin quarters to well deck be kept clear during movies. It is a sad state of affairs when the Captain must wait until a few " door- jammers" condescend to move. Ladders are made for passage and they should be kept clear at all times.

WE SERVE * *.._ * In the past week there has been an addition to the ship's company of approximately eighty new men, the majority of whom have come to us from Recruit Training. To these men we wish and trust that they will find in the HOUSTON everything to make their new phase of life both interest­ing and productive, To the old timers, " Howdy," a pleasant cruise in your new home. R. W. Po. t, AOM3c Jack Holt, SIc F. A. McCroary, S2c A face of an old friend is like a ray of sunshine through dark and gloomy clouds.- Lincoln. * * * PEP TALK Contributions have been coming in with increased volume but variety is sadly lacking. We appreciate the popularity of " Nosey News", Hack­ies Comments," etc., but we need original poems, pictures, news of in­terest to the whole crew- in other words VARIETY. There are many things' encountere~ in the daily routine that is new. If it strikes you as new, give us a note about it. The " mail box" is never full- we empty it before you fill it- so there is room for your slip of paper. Remember that this is an " all hands" job. The editor, his assistants and printer can't manufacture news. You see, we try to be truthful. Give us material to work with and we'll make this the best ship's paper in the fleet. Coming from Houston to Guantan­amo, to most of us, is like going from one end of the world to the other. But that was promised us long ago. We now have our chance to prove our worth in this man's outfit. This coming week our AA guns crews are going to perform. The 4th and 5th divisions have had little time for preparation. Most of the men have never fired before. On their shoulders rests the glory or lack of glory when the score is put down in black and white. We make our bow into the new gunnery year. To the 4th and 5th divisions we extend our best wish­es and when the scores are counted let there be no lack of glory. The fighting marines and the fighting fourth, we know are going to do their best. Lt. ( j..) J. B. Berkley - Editor. -: CONTRIBUTORS :- LE. Botterell, SIc R. E.
