Transcript Page 2 THE BLUE BO NET 4 December 1937 Navy Pay Versus Civilian Pay Aviation Memorial Trophy Awarded -: THE BLUE BONNET :- A weekly publication of the ship's company of the U. S. S. Houston, Captain G. N. Barker, U. S. N., Commanding and Commander C. A. Bailey, U. S. N., Executive Officer. If the admiral's boat refuses to mote, And the cat spoils your clean quar­terdeck During captain's inspection, don't show your dejection - Though your feelings may hurt something horrid; Getting low ain't worth while, so force out a smile, Take your hat in your hand and go forward. Don't Weaken When you feel rJll the bum, the outlook is glum, An' you're wonderin' what's comin' next, When everything's drear, and life loses its cheer, And the skipper and first luff are vexed - If this tropical south puts you down in the mouth, ' Till your shipmates they ain't even speaking, Just don't rock the boat - keep a turn ' round your goat; It's a great life IF you don't weaken. If you should lose sight of the flagship by night On' get lost alone on the ocean, And you go under hack, just smile, smile and " come back;" Don't fume and stir up a commotion. When we're running around if you put her aground By mistaking a star for a beacon; Why, there's no greater sport than a general court ~ It's a great life, my son, but don't waaken. When we're darkened at night and there aren't any lights, An' you beat it on deck to your sta­tion An' you flatten your face on a stan­chion or brace, Remember it's all for the nation. If you fall down a hatch, Surge will put on a patch To bind up your holes and stop leakin', Don't get sore like a pill, for it's part of the drill _ It's a great life, my boy, but don't weaken. Now you are asking, " How can I turn banker?" Simple. All you have to do is to pay yourself the down pay­ment of $ 150 and put it in the bank to draw interest while you are paying yourself the rest of the " easy" pay­ments. Using a very conservative rate of interest, 3%, your down payment increases to $ 156.75, while the rest of your monthly payments made regular­ly to the bank and earning money at 3%, simple, semi- annually increase to $ 430.09, giving a grand total at the end of the eighteen month period of $ 586.84. What does this mean? First we can now buy a car for $ 500 cold cash and save, according to our first figures, $ 118 since it would have amounted to $ 618 on the installment plan. Further­more, instead of having only this amount in the bank there is $ 86.84 ad­ditional which coupled with the $ 118 means a saving of $ 204.84- just be­cause you decided to become your own banker. The same principle holds true whe­ther you anticipate buying a car, ra­dio, jewelry, or a horseless carriage. Don't think that we are deprecating or disparaging borrowing entirely. The entire business world depends on borrowing and credit for its very ex­istence, but why not make your money " turn to" for you thereby earning money for what you want or need in­stead of allowing it to work for the other fellow? Be Your Own Banker ( From Palre 1.) Puzzled " I'll tell you how it is," said the sad looking young man. " I met a young widow with a grown daughter, and I married that widow. " Then my father met our stepdaughter, and mar­ried her. That made my wife the mother- in- law of her father- in- Iaw­and made my stepdaughter my step­mother, and my father became my stepson. See? " Then my stepmother, the step­daughter of my wife, had a son. That boy was of course, my brother, be­cause he was my father's son, but he was also the son of my wife's step­daughter and therefore her grandson. That made me grandfather to my step­brother. And now just who the heck am I?" $ 78.00 $ 12.00 Civilian $ 90.00 40.00 10.00 10.00 4.00 4.00 3.00 1.00 6.00 Navy Man $ 36.00 Free 5.50 3.00 .50 .50 Free .50 5.00 $ 15.00 Before considering entering civilian life after a worth while cruise in the navy, it is suggested that you study the following table. It is a comparison of pay of two young men, equally cap­able, between the ages of 18 and 21. One is a civilian and the other is a seaman second class in the navy. The Rear Admiral William A. Mof­fett Memorial Trophy, emblematic of aircraft operations conducted with a maximum of safety by battleship and cruiser- based a v i a t ion units was awarded to the U. S. S. TEXAS for the fiscal year of 1937. Lieutenant G. H. Hesselman, now commanding the aviation unit of the U. S. S. ARIZONA, was senior aviator of the TEXAS for the above period and was qualified under the award rules to be the recipient of the trophy for the U. S. S. TEXAS. The Chief of Naval Operations con­gratulated all units on their high scores and the excellent administra­tive and tactical leadership that was so evident in this competition. The HOUSTON aviation unit standing of twenty- first in the forty units compet­ing was therefore quite commendable. Editor, Lieut. ( jlr) E. A. McDona: d, U. S. N. Assistant Editor: R. C. Ball, Ch.
