Transcript Page 4 THE BLUE BO ET U. S. S. Houston- S- 7- 37- 1, OOO. snack for midnight snackeJ · s. The Supply Office's athletic marvel, Phillips, has a great appetite. He is shy about taking sandwiches away from the table, so one night when he had eleven stacked up ready for caching, an attempt was made to press " Kid" Viskovitch into service. No smoke­Phil carried them alone. When several razzers gave the buzz he was fluster­ed and almost lost his temper and his hunger. Fireman Ryan, who with " Tessie" Mohn made a flying dash to Long Beach last week- end via the " thumb" route, received a letter from his one­and- only, addressed: Mister " True Satisfaction" Ryan. Adam Adds: That puts all of the world's great lovers back at least one notch. * * * * * Curley- headed Roy Coats sat in the Pirates Cave sopping up atmosphere, or something.... A winsome damsel asked for permission to come along­side and park. Granted with: " I can stand it if you can!" To offset the bad beginning he decided to entertain with his warbling whistle. ( Note: He can warble but can't carry a tune.) She listened briefly then " took a powder" He didn't follow. Adam Adds: The famous line of breezy chatter ( ad in­finitum) would have been better tac­tics. * * * * * To " One of many interested read­ers"- thanks for one of the nicest combination of boos and bouquets ever received in a letter. Adam Chatterbox appreciates your interest, comments, advice, praise, criticisms, and en­couraging remarks. He also jumps at the chance to agree with the main point brought out in your well written note, and promises not to incur the disapproval of faithful listeners in the future. * * • • • Rare Requests: This gem came from " Bobby" Whaley: " Reason for leave request-- Wish to spend six days with my brother on his honeymoon.... Another: Request five days leave be­cause I've not had fifteen days in eight years. That came from " Jig­aboo" Smeaton, and this singular query was made by Slowey: " How can I have a request renewed?" • • • • • The all- man- and- a- yard- wide Mar-ine was seen swingin' ' em high, wide and dangerously at the Enlisted Men's WARRANT OFFICERS EXAMI A­TIONS During the five days commencing Tuesday, 21 September 1937, competi­tive examinations of candidates for appointment to the following grades of warrant officers will be conducted: Boatswains, Gunners, Electricians, Radio Electricians, Machinists, Carp­enters, Acting Pay Clerks and Phar­macists. III 1-. GUS'S WEEKLY LETTER ( Continued from Page 2.) to scrape ' em off with a stick. They allus ' lowed they were a mite betterin' tha common folk ever since they put up their two new barns. I'd like to take some 0' that sassiness outa their tongues and watch ' em deflate like a blimp that's been slit from stem to stern. Oh Sal, my heart's a beatin' worse'n tha blatant beep 0' tha big gander in spring. All that's in my mind is that little girl with tha blue eyes and tha corn tassel hair, my star 0' heaven. Love, ....... Gus. WHO REMEMBERS? One Year Ago This Past Week. Going ashore at Valparaiso... Signs that said, " Splendid U. S. Marines Wel­come," " The best known U. S. Cur­rency accepted here," and " Only the Old- fashioned English spoken"? The sighs from all hands as guns boomed a farewell salute as we weighed an­chor and steamed for home. Six Years Ago This Month ( Very few, we'll wager.) Moored in the Whangpoo River at Shanghai, China.... Q. M.' s swearing when a Japanese or Chinese man- o' ­war steamed in with those unread­able names that must be entered in the log.... All the good resolutions made as we left the States being fast forgotten. Ball t'other evenin'- and brother, when Leatherneck Stockton swings a lady she's swung! * * * * * So long gang! Time to leave the air. Thanks kindly for dialin' around our way. Be seein' ya' next week. .. ' till then bon jour and viva la bagatelle! ONE of the most bemedaled units of the late war in France, were the two hundred and ninety men of the N a v y Hospital Corps on duty with the Marines in France, who were given four hundred and thirty- seven awards including two Medals of Honor, thirty D. S. C.' s, forty- eight Navy Crosses, and two D. S. M.' s. The Navy Department has reported adversely on the bill providing for an additional aval Academy in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is maintained by the Department that the U. S. Naval Academy is ade­quate for the training of the present number of midshipmen. Many people do not know that the Navy has what is popularly called the ship's bank where men in the service may deposit money. This is otherwise referred to as a " deposit for savings." Men may deposit with the paymaster, in cash at any time, amounts not less than five dollars, but not a fractional part of a dollar. Four percent interest is paid on deposits, but the money can­not be withdrawn until the man is dis­charged, at which time he is paid the whole sum plus interest. --- 0--- LANGLEY NO LO GER AIR­CRAFT CARRIER The Secretary of the Navy has de­cided that the U. S. S. Langley be con­verted from an aircraft carrier to a seaplane tender. Henceforth the official number of this vessel will be changed from CV1 to AV3. This new designation will be used in all official future correspond­ence. Susie has a nice new skirt, So neat, so bright, so choosey' It never shows a speck of dirt, But, gosh, how it shows Susie!
