Meuhlen, Bugler 10 April 1937 * * * NEW TRAINING COURSES The following new training courses have recently been received and are available for issue: WT and CWT SC2c and SClc Cox. BM2c BMlc The courses necessary for advance­ment to all those ratings and for which courses are printed by the Bureau of Navigation are now avail­able for issue with the following ex­ceptions: SM3c SM2c SMlc S 0 m e 0 b sol e t e quartermaster courses are in stock and would be very helpful. A to N courses are available for is­sue to non- rated men only. Training courses issued to men in training for a higher rating, or other­wise, do not become the property of the men after his course is completed. Funds for printing these courses are limited and the Bureau of Navigation desires to use the courses in train­ing at least 3 men before they are worn out. When a man has completed his progress assignments and is ready to take the final examination on his course he should return the course ( text) to his division officer. Commander Cruisers, S c 0 uti n g Force, requires a report each quarter of the number of men who have com­pleted a training course for the next higher rating and the number who have not. It is probable that during the next year there will be more va­cancies in ratings than there are qualified men to fill them. Our per­centage of men who have completed courses for the next higher rating is THE BLUE BONNET COMPA Y 7- 1928 Were you a member of Company 7 that went through the Great Lakes Training Station in 1928? If you are or know someone who was, just lend us an ear. Mrs. Emilie Reidy, 0 f Bowling Green, Missouri, mother of K. E. Reidy, deceased, is desirous of ob­taining the use of a picture of the company and has asked the assist­ance of the Commanding Officer of the station. Mrs. Reidy would like to bor­I'OW the picture in order that she might have a copy made or forward the costs for the developoing of the copy or buy a picture. If you have a picture or know where there is one you would be doing a favor by con­tacting the station Commanding Of­ficer. ..... Headlock: " How about fixing that leaky jo pot?" Messcook: " I can't. It's full of ja­moke." Headlock: " Fix it when it's empty." Messcook: " What for? It doesn't leak then." .11 .. THE BOATSWAI ' S MATE I think there's nothing quite so great, Or noble as a boatswain's mate. A boatswain's mate with hairy chest, Who gives the rubber socks no rest. Upon whose forearm is tattooed, A dancing woman- in the nude. A boatswain's mate who yells all day, For someone up on deck to lay. Or toots his little pipe and booms, In basso, " Sweepers starcher brooms." And bellows out, " Now there will beno." In talk that sounds like Argentino. Any fool can make a rate- But only God can make Boatswain's mates. - Reina Mercedes Galleon. not as high as it should be. Weare inclined to wait to see if there is going to be a vacancy in our next rating before starting to study for it. Division officers and leading petty officers in each divisilon are willing to help any man who desires help in his studies. All men are urged to complete or enroll in the course for the next higher rating as soon as they can do so. The forthcoming cruise will be an excel­lent time to complete it. SHIPS OF FLEET TO CONTRIB­UTE TO RADIO INSTALLATION During the past winter the RELIEF has been installing a hospital radio broadcast system similar to that in all large hospitals. The RELIEF has already defrayed more than 60 percent of the expense of this equipment. It is estimated that an additional sum of about $ 1,700 is required to bring this project to com­pletion. Since this installation is for wel­fare of patients of the RELIEF who come from the fleet and since there is no provision for allocation of this fund, each ship has been asked to contribute from its welfare fund. Each cruiser is expected to contribute thirty- five dollar. s...... SCOUTING FORCE IN GOOD HEALTH According to the " Medical Bulle­tin" for the month of February, the general hygenic and health condition of the Scouting Force during the month was satisfactory. During this period seven deaths were reported. However six of these deaths were due to the gun explosion on the WYOM­ING. Of the grand total average com­pliment of 17,196 there were only 2,242 sick days. This is considered quite good for this time of year when flu is so prevalent. ,. ' 1. HOSPITAL CORPSMEN SCHOOL QUOTA INCREASED --- I The quota according to the 27 March issue of " Bureau of Navigation Bul­letin," for the Hospital Corpsmen School, San Diego, Calif., is increased from 20 to 30 each month. Non- rated men on board vessels of the fleet may apply for this school and such requests will be given consid­eration. • Ii. MAIL The various postmasters have been directed to forward all mail for per­sonnel of the fleet according to the following schedule: To April 16- San Pedro and San Diego. To May 20- Honolulu, T. H. To June 3- San Francisco, Calif. From June 3 until further instructed to San Pedro and San Diego.
