Transcript Page Four. NOSEY NEWS ( Continued From Page Three) Lovemaking a la Pastry: Viebb, the Baker, entertaining his girl friend by baking a swell " chocklut" cake. At least he thought so; and it was for HER! Something went wrong tho, as the " One and Only" left the ship without the cake. " Love's labor lost", sez I . * * * * * * * * Inventive Genius: Slough-" Bounc-ing Benny" of the " S", is neither painter nor artist. Be that as it may, the paint must go on, so he, depart­ing from the conventional, discovers a different way: By sticking his num­ber 12 boot in the bucket and kicK-ing well the result was perfect. He had paint on every thing, includ­ing himself! Brushes are expensive and Benny has the Small Stores Issue Room, you know; and besides, sez he, " A big flat foot helps to put it on smooth." ******** Seriously Speaking: Overheard Oklahoma's wandering son, Pharmi­cist's Mate, A. C. Gilmore, remark in his pleasant drawl, " Man! You're mighty right! I sure am glad I came to the good old Houston; she's the best ship I've ever been on, or hope to find!" .... Agreed .... And .... Cheif Yeoman, Elliott, who pilots the Log Room, amazes us by asking, " The Blue Bonnet? Never heard of it! You don't mean to tell me that this is published every week?! !" Were we flabbergasted!! ! * * * * * * * * Dreary Weekend: ~ aturday After-noon; Recreation Room nearly de­serted; Ehlo, hardbitten Watertender, sits at the piano, alone and lonely. With a far- away and melancholy ex­pression he thumps out " The Prison­er's Song".... His inimitable one- hand­ed technique leaves the left hand free to hold his head which is aching, or should be.... Suggestion: There's anoth­er " B" Division lad who can wheedle tunes from that instrument; Why not make it a duet, with " Rad" Cos­ter's assistance? * * * * * * * * Local Witticism: All hands and the Washroom Keeper came up to see the " Big Broadcast of 1937". " Bobby" Robison, " B's" recently returned cas­ualty, who was having trouble flnd­ing a place, smartcracked, " If there THE BLUE BONNET were two more men on this ship, one of them would have had to miss this movie!" * * * * * * * * Did You See: The disgruntled Pharmicist's Mate- new aboard- who brought his chair topside for the same picture at supper time and couldn't find it in the crowd until after the show was over? GAB FR• O• M* T* H* E* G* R* AB BAG: Why is Radio's Abe Gariner staying aboard from now on"???? Did the love light die.... did his fan mail stop because the " Girl- Friend" went out of circulation? Why was Dohm, CQM so bent on digging up a few " frog skins" Was the apartment too expensive, or did she get that new outfit? Radio's Sanderson: " Say Max, I just brought those courses a­board that you asked for, " How To Get in The Flag" and be a Staff P. O. Ditto Mains: H*@ lb&**@*! lb@! etc. ....

Tis said that a " Canyon Queen" induced Coop­er of the Flag Office to buy those " Vel' milion" red skivie pants. Why? Take a blush, Ramey! L Henry, the " 4th" Div. champian eater, says it took his Pa six years to get him in the Navy. Quote: " They got so tired of seeing my Pa at the Recruiting Station, they gave in just to be rid of his pester­ing."........ " Bud" Adams, stalwart Boat Cox'in, has another, and more appropriate nickname. IT he doesn't keep quiet, we'll spill it.... You " Clark Gable" you!.. .." Jew Boy" jots down the Contract Number of his new shoes, so if lost he'll have no trouble identifying them!! !...... Johnny Allen, who can't keep his hands off the bus fare allotment, remarks, " Maybe you did have ice cream Thurs­day, but I had a pain in the neck!" ________ Danny, the " Third's fighting red­head" contributed to Cab Driver's Re­tirement Fund by tendering a ten spot for a " short trip". Such gener­osity, and with beer ten cents a glass! ____.... Why couldn't " Watty" Watkins and " Four Eyes" Hubenek, of the fan­tail, say good night?
