Transcript Page Four NOSEY NEWS ( Contiued from page three) The reaction to the proposed " FARE­WELL DANCE" was no surprise to Adam ... He predicted it. There's a reason ... The terrific hullabaloo in the Port Hangar each night after supper isn't made by a troop of mad elephants. Just some of the stay­aboards doing a medicine ball work­out ... Question:.. Why does Fox blush when called " Dodo"? No blush­ing when called that in those " blue" letters ... What did the Connecticut " Dutchman" plan to do with a cow in No. 1 Uptake? Maybe he's sUll­porting a cat? ( Adam Adds: Poss­ibly he's under contract to Nicolette.) ... California produces most every­thing a bit larger than elsewhere, even mosquitoes. One flew in here a moment ago that was darned near as big as the Ancient Mariner's Al­batross ... Proof of this is the cap­tured insect ( of the genus Culex) on exhibition in the Print Shop ... Is there truth in the rumor that " Te!' lsie" Mohn is soon to become a proud father? ... Picture: Little Charlie Chay, Signal Gang, trailing large lady and leading little boy dressed in full bluejacket regalia along the crowded Pike ... Definition: Love starts when you sink into his arms and ends with your arms in his sink. '" '" '" '" '" That's all folks. Adam's signing off. Thanks for listenin'. Remem­ber to get your " stuff" in before Wedne~ day ni~ t--- that1s the N. N. deadline now. Also, you'll find your copy of the best Ship's Paper in the box in the Recreation Compart­ment. If it should happen to be empty call at the Log Room. Adios Amigos. • ••• NAVY TENNIS TOURNAMENT A Navy tennis tournament open to all personnel of the fleet will be held at Recreation Park, Long Beach, dur­ing the period 12 to 19 June. Events will be held in both the mens doubles and mens singles. Appropriate troph­ies will be awarded to winners and runners- up in each event. Entries must be made before June 10. Anyone interested in entering this tournament should see the Athletic Officer for further details. THE BLUE BONNET SPONSORS NAMED FOR NEW DESTROYERS ....... The Secretary of the Navy has des­ignated Miss Virginia Lee Maury Werth and Mrs. Edward Simpson as sponsors of the MAURY and STER­ETT respectively. Miss Werth is the greatgranddaughter 0 f Commander Matthew Fountain Maury, now deceas­ed. The MAURY, which is being built at the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corp­oration, Union Plant, San Francisco, Calif., is named for the late com­mander. The STERETT, which is being built at the Navy Yard, Charleston, S. C., is named in honor of the late Lieutenant Andrew Sterett, who is the great uncle of Mrs. Simpson, widow of the late Rear Admi. ra. l.. Edward Simpson. FUN HO! ( Continued from Page 1.) The happy hour will be held about seven- thirty in the evening so that all hands will be aboard for the show, late liberty not normally being grant­ed while off Hawaii. Still more acts ( mostly, original dialogues or take­offs) are needed. Also, anyone with special ability or inclination toward helping with props would report to Ensign Raymond who is handling the auxiliary end of the show. .. I." LT. ( jg) 8.. P. WELLER, PROMOTED Due to an error in last week's issue of the Blue Bonnet, it was stated that Lt. Moosbrugger was the only HOUS­TON officer eligible and selected for promotion by the last selection board. The Blue Bonnet wishes to correct this error. Lt. ( jg) S. P. Weller, HOUSTON aviator, was selected for promotion to Lieutenant by this same board. Congratu. l. a. ti. o. ns, Mr. Weller. The absent- minded professor was busy in his study. " Have you seen this?" said his wife, entering. " There's a report in the paper of your death." " Is that so?" returned the profes­sor without looking up. " We must remember to send a wreath." Notices of the first matches will be forwarded to the Fleet Athletic Of­ficer on June 11. Also, notices of the schedule will be published in the Pre s Telegram on Friday, 11 June and in the Morning Sun on Saturday, 12 June. USS Houston-- 4- 10- 37- 1,000. Dear Sal, Who'd a thought it! We're a goin' to get a chance ta see tha rest 0' tha terrane, Sal. Tha ship is headin' toward tha land 0' soft music and grass dresses one 0' these fine days, and we'll be a sittin' in tha midst of a lotta maidens, chewin' pineapples by tha dozen and sippin' okueleehow ( tha drink 0' volcanic fire and poison). Mayhaps I'll be a bringin' you one 0' tha weed skirts. But there's a wee bit 0' danger in that. Your Pa'll be thinkin' he skipped part 0' tha barley field last season and'll be runnin' tha binder over ya. How about a fine, shellacked duck. They say they're tha pick 0' tha very nice and tasty, and ya can't beat that. A lot 0' people don't grab tha things at hand, Sal. One would think with tha fishes 0' tha sea and the foul 0' tha atmosphere a body would be in tha lap 0' plenty. In jargon that means he would be a settin' a full table. One 0' tha lads got a worrin'. He noticed some nice big fat birds a­flyin' around our fan tail, so he says them's my meat; watch out fair feath­ered friends, I'm a comin' with my hatchet. One big fat, dusty white bird fell for tha wiles 0' one 0' tha cook's bis­cuits a swingin' from a fish line, and was started a simmerin' in a stew kettle. Strange, says tha lad, after boilin' tha foul for many an hour, none 0' my weapons will pierce this carcass. Maybe I had been stewin' tha soundin' lead: But checkin' up he finds he's stilI wrong as a hen a broodin' over a heap of rocks. Then he gets mad. Says he, I'll eat this; and commenced a frothin' at tha mouth. Maybe he dinna like tha flavorin' when he tore a mite off and Com­menced masticatin'. Anyway, ays he, I'd sooner be eatin' cess pool salmon, and thas not even good hog food. Love, Gus.
