Transcript ' Sa d-- d good thing I got more variety to use than the morning press. Now that, " Pretty Boy" Floyd pick­ed up a few hunks of lead, and dear old Bruno is on his way to the warm­er climes, why the morning globe trot­ter is going to be mighty slim. We now find out that an ex- wrestler, holding several ScoFor and Asiatic belts cannot resist the temptation of juicy steaks when the boxing and wrestling squads are having a meal. No names mentioned, but we wonder when a Ii'l blonde MAA with a big voice is going t; start earning those steaks. There is a Y3c on this ship who makes out his shipping- over papers and spells his own name wrong. A mail clerk should do better than that. Then there is a certain palsie- walsie in the Black gang who has the girls in Houston asking about that lovely brown body. Two blessed events, two weeks, two girls and two Browns. My, my. This time it is Brown the Gl\ I. Congrats old boy, and drop the cigar in the BB box in the reception hall. Ostegren and Sivak have special boats when they return from smokers on other ships. This time it was the LOUISVILLE. Per­haps Ostegren will read this Ii'l sheet from now on. R. V. Hill says that the Pay Office will run as should be now that he is back in the easy chair. Bill Kinhartz is een carrying the 5" Battery around on his shoulders these days. Prof. Lee of the EM gang made a new test recently. He says that shaving cream is not good for tooth paste. Got a letter from a cer­tain ~ uys girl friend the other day and she enclo ed the following little poetic invitation: I've got what God gave me, What God gave me is mine, N SEY NEWS by EV'B DY THE BLUE BO NET If you want to ee, What God gave me, Come up and see IE some timc. I'll have to ask thc advice of Tur-e~ ano on that one. A certain Holly­woo I perioJlcal ha rece! tly publish­e I a p; Gl; ure of Toby Wing along. idc a Ic" er :;! le recieveJ from a HODS­TO. T saibr, making her ague t by p OX" on f1e late Prcsidcntial cruisc. ; c : lfC P." tLy certain that the guilty " lover by remote control" is a ccrtain rr'lnter 3rd. who was transfe~ Ted to the NORTHA IPTON. Carlson claim­ed the distinction of knowing the young lady and we only wish that he were still aboard so that we could get the address. The demon of our tonsorial parlor looks charming with • that cute " Mustachio" and coat of tan, developed while on the rifle range. Someone else seems to realize we are headed West. After using everything but the skyhooks to hang his speakers to, Brown has finally got a permanent position for his horns. Has anyone ever tried to get from the " C" div. compartment to CPO quarters during the time the boys are scrubbing down the decks in tne mess halls. Seems !' ike they just can't get together on the job. Took me an hour the other day to make the trip. What Ylc has his wife run­ning in circles while he is trying to decide between Honolulu and Long Beach. ' Sfunny what true love will do. Gus Berg gets that starry look in his eyes, clamps down on the pipe stem, and sighs long and loud about the gal in Diego that is going to Frisco. We wonder if the " Sea Pig" will ever be capable of carrying on a conversation without insulting the person he talks to first. Here's a little thing that I got hold of and it seems pretty good dope: " It's easy to frown, When the world's got you down, And the skies above aren't blue. But the guy that can grin, Is the guy that will win; When the game of life is through, There's more of it but that gives you an idea. And so, my fren's, I'll be seeing you. FLASH: Who was the officer in such a hurry to get ashorQ, he missed the boat and went swim­ing in tead, right off our gangway? And who found the muzzle of a .50 caliber machine gun pretty hot stuff when he rested his hand against it shortly after firing umpty rounds? Page Three SPLIT ESSES Victo Divis'ron Triumphant Over F i k' Th'rd In Rifle Matches Du ' nO' the recent stay of the Fleet in GU: ll1tanamo Bay, the Aviators were given the opportunity to fire the ~ fark m n COUI', e at the Naval Sta­tion Ri Ie Range. It was a much apprcciated event as these affairs are far and few between for Aviation personnel. Considering the fact that that many of the men had never fired the course, the results were par­ticularly gratifying. Ivan- Awful- Itchie, GM3c of the 3rd. Div. challenged all comers. Ivan was in good form on the first day, and many were the Cigars and Gedunks lost, when the final }' esults began to trickle in. At noon the Warriors withdrew leaving a field of carnage and destruction behind them, with untold numbers of dead and dying shells begging to be picked up. How­ever, so calloused were these hardy veteran, that they continued with their Beer Drinking Contest, and turn­ed an unheeding ear upon the cries of the mortally woundeJ. The final day was fought out under a blazing tropical sun, and the Warriors again withdrew leaving the field in worse shape than before, if possible, with no accurate determination as to who was the actual winner, so closely were they matched. A resume was held on the following day, and owing to his intrepid foolhardiness, our own incomparible " Charlie" ( Smokestack) Noble was awarded a close decision, thus snatching the torch of victory from the flames, and it is rumored that no small part was played by an unsung hero in the " BUTTS". MO­RAL: clean living always wins- Ivan. It might not be amiss to state here that among the officers on the Pistol Range, Lt. Miller placed first, thus showering the Division with still more glory. Plane No. 7 recently suffered a severe attack of " GAMMILLITIS" The Plane Cap't. of this noble vehicle, better known to his friends as " PORK CHOP", was observed working into the wee sma' hours. We wonder if this strange malady, of working at nights and on holidays, was trans­mitted by the " BLUE GOOSE" before it left. It had a funny smell. Continued on page four
