Transcript Hearty Greetings Friends! Amid all the turmoil and " war scare" talk that threatens to crash a considerable part of the world into another mad, senseless, struggle, your old broad­casting reporter, Adam Chatterbox, begs permission to strike a lighter note... This short broadcast isn't allowed enough time on the air; not when the Rambler Ship's fun- loving bluejackets have been on a long cruise and the first port is the city of fine bridges, fiestas, fireworks, fanfair, fair femin­inity and " fuss- over- the- fleet."... San Francisco! Sure and ' tis a foine time we've had kickin' up our heels and shakin' some of the sea dust from our shore- goin' blues.... Listen then and you shall hear... * * * * * Terp ichorean Trend: Arrival in Frisco was the signal for all fandan­go trippers to stretch their lower ex­tremities- and wiggle the oceall­cramped dogs- in variations of the " Frisco," trot and truck. Two Navy Mothers Club hops, the' big fleet ball and all of the local dance emporiums were spots for the lads to demon­strate ... on the floor and off. Spark­trician Hyndman, led the hoofers at Oakland's Auditorium, where he ar­dently squired a petite nurse-- aC­quaint'lnce of another day. She lives forty- miles from- nowhere and the los of sleep resulting sent the blonde boy to his " private" bunk for extra snor­ing Sunday a. m. Lads in I. C. gave him a fright when a siren was placed a­longside and remote controlled. Imago­ine his being peeved? * * * * * Sly Sleeper Seeks Seclusion: " Den­ny" Dembach, never one to jump into the spotlight, made a bid for fame when not finding " room in an inn" THE BLUE BON ET deposited his ample bulk on one of the newsboy's temporary tables smack in the middle of Frillco's busy Market ::. treet and demanded that he be al­lowed to knock over a bit of " hut­eye." ... Tolerant citizens merely thought it amusing and seemed to agree with the amiable Electrician's Mate when he objected to shipmates " sounding reveille" and escorting him to liard the dock. *' * * * * Faultless Farewell Party Planned: The date, time, place and all the im­portant details of th:: l Houston's grandest party have been definitely determined and nothing remains now but for the 11th of June to roll around. This is not to be the usual Ship's Dance, though there will be plenty of that, it is a much more important event. It is our last chance to say godspeed and goodbye to two of the finest officers we have had the privi­lege of serving with and under. Thb is to be no tearful, " the ship wi;} surely sink," adieu. Rather it is our way of telling Captain Baker anJ Commander Robottom how much we have enjoyed having them a our lead­ers for two years; extending a sin­cere wish that their future tours of duty may be pleasant successful ones and say that we hope another day will find us shipmates again. Adam Adds: Most of us are more comfortable in civilian clothes when on the beach, however, because of the nature of this party it would be more in keeping with the £ pirit of things to wear uni­form, even if it is left up to your personal tastes. * * * * * Beauty a:: o: d the Bea t: Yeoman Thrice Sartor sat sim~ ing in a Main Stem Cafe, sadly meditating on noth­ing of consequence. His gloomy thoughts were pleasantly interrupted when a dazzling brownette, trimly chic, sauntered in with sailors on each arm and sat on a nearby stool. The pencil- pusher wa frankly interested and stared unashamed for. quite a long time. The lady didn't seem to mind but Sartor carved a neat niche for himself when he finally walked over to her and bowing low, olemnly thanked her " ... for letting me look at vou' because you're the most beautiful thi; g I've seen for a long time." Adam " dd -: Remember that one men, it's a neat trick ... If you get away with it! Page 3 Oldtimer Overjoyed: Our genial Master of the Mail stood hat in hand sizing up the dancing couple from a convenient doorway. The night was chilly and he had not removed his pea­coat. It is well known that " Jo Jo" is no youngster, proudly carries two hashmarks and rates three; be ides that his toupee is thinning. As he calmly surveyed the gay scene, a new­comer to the avy walked up, back­slapped our Mister West heartily and all smiles greeted him with, " How're ya' hipmate! You came through training at San Diego didn't you?" The an weI' was " Yes." The lad laugh­ed and boasted, " I knew it- never for­get a guy, specially one who came through with me.... How do you like the Navy? I'm doin' O. K., made ea­man the other day... might even ship over. You did come through two years ago didn't you?" Joe then forgot him­self and stopped the chatter by saying, " Yes, my training was at San Diego, but it was eleven, not two years ago." That was too much for the lad, his face flushed and with a stuttered " Ex­cuse ME!" he darted into the crowd followed by a roar of laughter. Adam Add : There's a reason for Joe's con­tented purr when he tells this story. * * * * * ' Bout Ev'thing and Ev'body: Gun­striker Dalton started to write his gal from Honolulu: " Gee Honey, why don't you write ... You know how NERVOUS I am when I don't hear from you." The puzzling part is that the lad is a longtimel' and yet he promises that, " ... it won't be long before we are through with all this writing ... I'll come home, get a job on Uncle John's farm..." Adam Adds: '\- V& FC you day -< lreamin 01' practic­ing ?" Swarthy sons of Italy usually know their own, but Vanzetti made a classi­cal errol' when he thought Euphemia' name was 1cDonaid and refused t believe otherwise. The name is stick­ing and the EM3c is con idering an off. cial change to Sandy Mac. ( Fine name for one of the Duce's wandering boys.)
