Transcript Volume IV, Number 43 * -.. s. S... o .. S....-.... * Long Beach, California 6 November 1937 THE OLD NAVY AND THE NEW The Navy's very different now, from what it used to be. Thus do the old salts all complain, to boots like you and me; but we can't help but won­der, as we hear them fan the breeze, if they've not sort of overlooked a few facts like these: The firerooms were no hotter in the good old days of yore; there were just as many hours in a sleepy ' twelve- to- four'; there was turn to just as often, and we also under­stand that the decks were treated then as now with holystone and sand; they stood the same inspections in the days that used to be, and they stood the same watches when the ship went out to sea. Yes, they drank the same old coffee, ~ nd they wore the same reg. blues- and they used the same ex­cuses when caught wearing non- reg. shoes. They had just as many scoffers in the days of long ago, and they showed the same capacity our mod­ern scoffers show. They had the same old mess cooks- and they were just as slow. They growled- but they ship­ped over, in the days of long ago. They didn't have the practices; they had no engineering score; they had no com­munication competition, and no mot­ors to make the boats run- the only motor in their boat was the man be­hind the gun. Ah, well- the Navy's very different now ( as all the old salts state), so boots like you and me accept the stories they relate. BUT WE CAN'T HELP BUT WONDER, as they talk the time away, if the olu salts USED TO TELL THE TALES THAT THE OLD SALTS TELL TO­DAY. SENIOR LIFE SAVER Notification of award of a Senior Life Saving membership in the Amer­ican National Red Cross has just been received by the Commanding Officer in the case of Richard M. Ellwood, Flc, U. S. Navy. Ellwood completed the strenuous tests successfully at the Vallejo, " Y" during our recent overhaul period at Mare Island. A membership card, em­blematic of his qualifications as a Senior Member of the Life Saving Service has been presented him. ...... BATROBE Says Senor Deek, " My batrobe reek, I send her to de laundry; She's not so hot, she full of spot Just lak I work in foundry, Wen she is clean, she look dam keen An' fill me wit emotion, I tell you wat, she's best batrobe On the whole Passeefeek Ocean." In wan more week dis robe of Deek Report back to her station, She look just lak a gunny sack Wit high school adjucation Deek's face get rad for he get mad Wen he look at dis batrobe He say, " By Gar, she's shronk so far She no would fit a microbe." But Deek's a lad wat can't stay mad, He say, " She's now a wescut; I'll wear her at de time of day Wen I eat tea and biscut, She don' quite fit, but I tink it Is still a dam good notion; I tell you wat, she's bes' wescut On whole Passeefeek Ocean." DISCIPLINE SECTION- BUREAU OF NAVIGATION The Discipline Section handles all matters pertaining to the discipline of enlisted personnel. This includes dis­charges prior to the expiration of en­listments where disciplinary action is involved, and also disciplinary mea­sures pertaining to members of the Fleet Naval Reserve and men on the retired list, wherever the Bureau's action is required. This section by correspondence with civil authorities, Federal agencies and others, endeavors to keep the Bureau's records complete regarding civil of­fenses committed by enlisted and for­mer enlisted men. All general court- martial trials of enlisted men, all summary courts- mar­tial involving bad conduct discharge and summary courts- martial and deck courts involving reduction in rating, as well as other cases of an exception­al nature referred to the Bureau by the Judge Advocate General, are re­viewed in this section, insofar as the disciplinary features of the sentence are concerned. In reviewing a court, a brief of the man's entire naval his­tory is prepared. This includes corres­pondence of favorable or unfavorable nature ( debt and non- support) as well as entries in the service record. A re­port on the man's home conditions is obtained and included whenever it ap­pears to be warranted. This brief gives the best available picture of the man's character, as judged by past perform­ance, and is the basis for the Bureau's recommendation regarding the sen­tence. Each case is dealt with on its merits. The Bureau considers the men- ( Continued on Page 2.)
