Transcript Time signal: O. K.! O. K.!! I'll skip that ... Greetings friends! You are tuned to Station NN and if you'll listen carefully, your roving reporter, Adam Chatterbox, will attempt to amuse and divert you l' attention pleasantly during his weekly ten minute broadcast. * * * * * Mountain Mixup: La~ t weekend saw " Hairbreadth Harry" Dainwood treking to the high mountains for a fling at winter sports. Among other diversions, tobogganing came in for it's share of attention. Our hand­some Seaman makes his own pub­licity ar. d hurdles conventions by ~ imply ignoring the commonpl! ace. An ordinary toboggan slide offered no thrills so he insisted on taking the flat- bottomed sledge to a nearby ski run. There everything went well until he came to the jump! After soaring thru the air for a time he ma.( e a rough ollie point landing finally crashing into the biggest tree in Los Angeles County. Lady Luck was with the bluejacket as usual' his only injury, a badly mangled liP: bears mute witness to that. He com­mented: " As long as the darned thing stayed on the ground I could c~ ntrol it, but when it got up in the all', what could I do 1!! ll. * * * * * Sad Soliliquy: At the nearly de­serted bar of a Pike rendezvous sits ~ lonely appearing sailor. With glass m hand he stares sorrowfully at his reflection in the huge mirror back of. the bar. Finally after twenty mmutes of grave perusal, the sea­farer, who is none other than " Steady Steve" Sevak, turns and with utter disgust in every tone, declares to no. one in particular, " And women thmk I'm handsome!" With that he turns on his stool, jerks his hat to THE BLUE BONNET the front of his head and saunters wearIly into the night. * * * * * Jingler Jibes " Jigaboo": When Smeaton's Late To Muster, Or Speeding To Quarters, There Rings In Your Ears This Song As He Passes: " Gotta Cigarette, Keesee 1 Hey Goss! Old Pal, Gotta Smoke 1 I Can't Buy A Package, Doggonit! I'm Broke." When His Mind Is In Stillwells On The Bearded Lady, Cigarettes Don't Enter His Thoughts. So He Mooches His Smokes With " Say, Got A Camel 1 Old Gold 1 A Lucky, Chesterfield, Phillip Morris, Paul Jones, Or Even The ' Maken's Will Do, Doggonit! * * * * * Twentieth Century Candor: Be­cause it so humorously reflects the spirit of our times we present this little story from the pen of a con­temporary on the U. S. S. INDIAN­APOLIS' Ship's Paper Staff. We were luxuriously driving our newly purchased second- hand car a­round the hills near San Pedro, when we spotted a little white- haired old lady hobbling along the road. This was about five mile outside of town. Stopping the car, I asked the little old woman if we could take her some­place. She lifted her eigty odd years of accumulated shyness into the car and arranged herself very demurely. After about three minutes of silence she piped up in her small timid voice: " You might think I'm fond of walking, seeing me on the road, but I'm really not. I was waiting for the bus; I waited and waited for twenty minutes; well, that was just too much so I said: ' to hell with it, I'll walk'- and here I am!" * * * * * Kiter Kut: Dietrich, who flys kites for recreation, was so ashamed of last week's unseamanlike episode that he went ashore and tried to commit harakiri. At least it would seem so from his scarred and bat­tered appearance. Offhand Oddity: Dan Daly, Ship­fitter Striker, has cut a canvas man­hole gasket which covers the large steel plate. As he sits waiting for his " lord and master" he casually Page Three sketches an the white cloth lying in his lap. By watching unseen we ob­serve the results of this artistic pass­time and it is surprisingly good. When finished the deft pencil strokes have outlined a full rigged sailing ship, complete to tops'l. The lad be­comes conscious of our snooping and in his confusion nearly drops the heavy manhole cover on his toes. We hurry away, sorry to have in­truded on a C& R man " at work." • * • • * Oldtimer Visits: Chief lachini t, Thomas J. Doyle, dropped in to say " hello" and chat a few minutes. This popular Officer, now on the In­dianapolis, helped, as he puts it, " ... drive the first rivets in the hull" of the Rambler Ship. Aboard before commissioning until our return from the Orient, Chief Machinist Doyl was the well liked " M" Division Of­ficer and did much to keep the Hou­ston out in front in Engineering and athletics. He reports the Hoosier Ship as being a mighty good man- o­war, but admits the Houston still holds a very warm spot in his affec­tions. * * * * * Address Antics: Recently these un­usual ways of envelope addressing were noticed: Ehlo, Seaman 2c, Wa­tertender ... To: " Sockeye" Salmon, F3c, " B" Division. A letter to pub­licity shy " Bud" Adams was worded thusly. To " Big Cuddles" from " Lit­tle Cuddles" and one to Hall, " The World's Worst Storekeeper" was penned: Mr. A. D. Houston. An­other was to: Mr. Navy Blue ico­lette. * * * * * Hit or Miss: Eufemia expo tu­lates:: " When Collona wrecked one car for me that was bad enough, but he floored me completely by asking to borrow the second one!" ... Over­heard: " Where's Bulla?" " Don't know, did you look in his bunk 1" " Yes, he's not there." " Then I can't imagine where else he might be." ... Your reporter won a ten dollar bet on this weeks Hit Parade. Wagered the tricky little melody " Boo Hoo," that's sweeping the country lately would jump to first place- and it did ... After trying to find a park­ing spot in downtown L. B. have de­cided an Austin is the only car worth having ... What do you think 1 ... ( Continued on page four)
