Transcript NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY This Guantanamo period is a tough racket for me and me palsy- walsies who are doing our best to break up romances, put our friends on the pan, kibitz on some of these wise guys games and generally make ourselves heartily disliked. Each and every one of the Romeos to be, Don Juans. of the past and notables about ship are constantly in training for the con­quests upon our return to the land where men are men and the women sometimes don't care for the idea. To- wit; what we don't do, won't do us any harm. Well, any way, here we are, so what are you going to do a­bout it. Went into the wash room the the other day, once a quarter, and a certain blonde BM2c was standing in his birthday suit and gazing admir­ingly in the miror and saying to him­self, " Jeez, these women, why don't they get married and leave me alone." After all!! And then, while on the dock the other night a certain BM was leading the Marine choir in sev­eral melodious ??? arias. That's one time when the Marine superiority took a back seat. Were they snowed un­der, and what stories! Seems like Ken­nedy just had to have his ' alky" rub after his fight the other evening. " Please, Brown, my lips are sore, put some there." And what about that long range punch, down. " J e w" Freedman met a shipmate of the past the other day who inquired if he still had that glorious tenor voice. From now on the Well Deck will be blessed with harmony while the Irishman is on watch. Fansher was taking a noon day siesta one noon and some nasty man painted his feet with war color and his toe nails a lovely shade of red deck. The playboy tells us confid­entially that he alwa s had them THE BLUE BONNET SPIRIT, WHAT IS IT? hard times hit us, WE CANT TAKE IT. True, it is, that there may be sit­uations and conditions that we don't like, but continually singing the blues gets us nowhere and only makes it harder to keep out of the red. A few of us are trying our level best to make this a good place to live but it is like swimming against the tide and not getting anywhere when others try to break up what little spirit is left. If you're not interested in making it a good ship, shut up, no one is interested in your sad stories. We who have been here for some time are proue. of the ship and her achievements during the time we have been aboard and it is d- d disgust­ing to hear a few people who have come from what they consider better ships continually runnir; g down the HOUSTON and always saying, " Now when I was on the --". You are on the HOUSTON now and probably due to stay for some time. It is to your benefit to help us make this a happy home. ..... R. E. B. Let's get that Red " E" manicured anyway, and that this was a bum job. That definition of Women that WKF turned in is a honey, but if you want to see it, see us. On our recent visit to Houston last month, the following conversation was said to have really occured: Escort: " Have you read Ship's Order No. 14?" Visitor: " No, what does it say?" Escort: " Cancelled." What Chief Electricians Mate :': l. S his shirts scrubbed by a certain Chief's striker. It has been rumored that there is a canary in the Boat Shop??? Extra duty men can breathe easily ~ ow. ! he C& R gang have finished laymg hno­leum in the CPO pantry. ~ ut R~ bel says he has some nifty new Jobs Im~ d up. Did Sharpe get that ear of hIS from the horse in the big town of G ntanamo. Our Basket- ball coach ua . ' t says that the sun in this area IS qm e warm. Sivak made the statement the other night that he could fall for any " twist" now. What does he mean? That dynamic marine states that he will prove without a doubt that ' C. ol­umbus was a Marine, in the Spamsh Page Three STOKERS NOTES Another week gone by in dear old Guantanamo, a smoker and what havp. you thrown in. The Stokers sure have quite a gang, a new fighter who used to earn $ 65.00 whole dollars a week on the outside and by the way, he says his board was thrown in, now if you want to have him show his stuff, see Bulla, F3c., " M" Division. All week has b<: en spent in getting the good old ~ l, ip ready for the on­coming maneuvers to the West Coast and that of course brings us within sight of the ' home' of the HOUSTON San Pedro, my, my, won't the girls just be standing on the docks, etc. ' 1 ' 1 We wonder why Kollmer, WT1c, does not come out for boxing, espec­ially when he can knock ' em so cold as has been done in the past. What about it, Kollmer? ? " Slide Rule" Kerdikes ( the Ladies man, had a letter this week from some sweet young thing in Houston and ever since he has been unable to com­plete his Diesel Engine Course. A. Dietzman Hap is still the true lover, so he says, believes that an engagement should be on the NRA basis. Oh, well, it's great if the girls can stand it. My, my, Dietzman, what is this power you have over the fair young sex???? The Engineering Score is still o­kay, but we can do a lot to make it better. Watch the excessive use of water and try and help keep the HOU­STON leading the Cruisers. MarCorps'. And so, little boys, It's easy enough to be happy, With a glass, a lass and a song. But the man worth while, Is the man who can smile, When he has the " old lady" along. " Wop" Pemental, plank owner on the 5" battery, knows his targets. When the sleeve was brought aboard, he made the crack, " No hits, but she went through the smoke, at least look how black it is." What ship's writer made a sucess in Houston? Arrives at Guantanamo and air mail epistles pour in 20c a crack. Would have sworn Podunk Center broadcast last Saturday for the smoker. Good music and a few trapeze acts??? S'all fer now! .. 1. Send the BLUE BONNET home.
