Transcript NOSEY NEWS ' BOUT EV'BODY This joyous Yultide season causes us to pause in our " Scoop & Scoop" scourage. Among fine shipmates on a snappy man- of- war, the spirit of the season brings forth " Our sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas" to all. * * * * * * * * In justice to our kind readers we hesitate in our intentions of cruising about with the old weather peeper t'C! rtly closed. * * * • • * * • This holiday season has brought many interesting sidelights, more or less surprising, but positively news­worthy. **,!'***** For instance: " Bing" Berg receives a handsome bathrobe. A nice gift says us. But-- the lad insists on wearing it in the evenings, much to the sur­prise of the old would- be salts. Elwood of the log room also received a silky robe. This lad decided shore side more appropriate for the wearing of such apparell, so I am afraid we shall not have the pleasure of observing it in use. * * * * * * * * The entertainers of yesterday's pro­gram drew some attentive pre- curtain crowds the past week, many in the hopes of seeing the one and only " Russ" DanwoOd, cow- boy crooner, in vocal chord maneuvers. The lad has sadly disappointed his staunchest supporters. Still, those of you desiring to hear that golden cackle of his, just visit the 2nd Div. comp't any evening. • * * * * * * * Primos, CBM ( the papers said " hairy- chested" CGM) fell in line with the spirit of leap year recently. The ' Frisco papers gave our boat deck romancer quite a column. ' Tis said some of the salt water romeos feel in­clined to breathe easier now. THE BLUE BON ET With all these beautfully decorated crees about the ship we feel sure :: lanta will think of some of our youth­ful sailormen. Inside info leads us to the conclusion that " G- Man" Maze received his desired Tommy- Gun. The lads close association with these fear­less minions of law and order has brought about a situation whch he cannot cope wth. Says he- " ' Tis a sad state of affairs when even the fro­thy topped ale of local emporiums is tagged with my monicker". * * * • * * * * We were sure the coordinator of the Exec'x Office had reached that age where Santa was a childhood fancy, but not so. That handsome stream­lined kiddie- kar seen in the office seems to change the whole outlook. * * * * * * * * " Frenchy" Godaire of the " R" says most of the gang sat up all night in hopes of seeing Santa bring that much needed jamoke pot. We shall have to pay a special call if he did. Hot mud served by the wrecking crew would be enjoyable to say the least. * * * * * * * * " Hendy" of the Nav. Office is hoping for an old corn likker jug. He already has a mouth harp and guitar. The lad intends to show us how a river- boat contraption should really be synchron­ized. * * * • • * * * " Peewee" Deforge has been mend-ing his largest sock these past few weeks. From what we can learn he is expecting that " Blonde" he speaks so much of. Wonder if this flag waver has been a good boy too. * * * * * • * * Since this is the last edition wherein ,' our correspondent will put the spot­light on the headline making lads of this vessel, he will give you a good tip. In this coming ew Years list of resolutions you had better live up to them. The new editor of the column is in a class by himself when it comes to the " Snoop & Scoop" business. * * * * * * • * Note:- The remainder of this column is written by the new scandal vender. Pipe his technique. * * * • • • * • Herbert " Herb" Hoover, well known Sparktrician threw caution to the winds and entered the swelling ranks of that illustrious group dubbed the " Golden Grainers". The bride- elect is a native daughter of Oakland cross­the- Bay and the date Tuesday the 22.

( I ote: it really happened) We reckon that to be the height of some­thing. • • • • • • • • PF " Georgie" hapman, da hing ' ommunication Orderly - and we mean dashing - was heard bemoan­ing his spendthrift habits, anent the expenditure of four dollars on one lberty. Such improvidence Georgie! • • • • • • • • Crego of the " E" Division is con-sidering the advisability of taking the " Rocky Mountain Draft", and quite seriously too. Reason: Si Pierce says Crego is a conscienceless homewreck­er and in attempting to prove it to the world at large has the 1. C. man on the verge of acute dementia. * * * * • • • * . Good story:- Ellwood, that de-bonair stooge of the Log Room re­ceived a Christmas card from Hall's ( another Log Room habitue) fiancee before he- the- one- and- only, so he thought-- received a line. ice work Dick, nothing is too good for a ship­mate and nothin. g.. i. s what Hall got. Quartermaster's striker: " Sir, the barometer has fallen." Watch Officer: " It dosen't look stormy. How far has it fallen?" Q. M. Striker: " About six feet, but it isn't broken, sir." Gossip: " Does your husband talk in his sleep?" Gunner's wife: " 0, and it is so ex­asperating. He only smiles." Hoid on Toity- toid street; " Papa, what's a vacuum?" " A vaccum's a void, sonny." " I know, papa, but vat's the void mean ?" Sailor: " Will you marry me, dear?" She ( the dear): " 0, but I will al­ways admire your good taste." Traffic Cop: " Don't you know what I mean when I hold up my hand?" Lady ( meekly): " I should. I've been a chool teacher for twenty years." Boost HOUSTO Athletic!
