Transcript Howdy, here we are again with bits of news and events once again. What with this unusual weather we are having it is almost impossible to get al'ound on topside and find out how our deck force is getting along. * * * * As this issue consists mostly of Avia-tion, Gunnery and Marine articles it is most natural that they creep in this column. As the Aviation Unit is spending their time down in San Diego this week we haven't much dope in that respect but we do know that Pat Readette i" one proud man now that he is the papa of a girl. Ask him to show you a picture of her, he is always carrying one with him and we can't blame him for wanting to show it to everyone. * * * * This rain is keeping the Gunner's Mates below decks these days and we know that they are one class of peo­ple who like rain. The Armory looks more like a coffee shop than " Bob's Place" on the landing. * * * * The Marine Unit has been preparing for their annual drill on the beach. This accounts for the sailors you see wearing leggings around the ship. The menu arranged for the Marines when they make their landing has them worried quite a bit. Seems they will be given only a ration while they are used to having seconds on board ship. Cheerup though as it will be only for one night. * * * * The following men are getting air-minded very much these days and are attempting to become Naval Aviators: Garcia, Martin, Whitehouse all radio­men; Ramella and Rice both seamen. Here's wishing them lots of luck in taking their examinations. THE BLUE BONNET Red Meyers of the " E" Division re­cently acquired his ball and chain and is now stringing along with the G. G.' s Aint love grand, Red. It should be worth the cigars. * * * * Are you troubled with dandruff, hair falling out, or turning grey? If so, see Chandu Ridge, F2c. He guarantees a dome covered with curly red locks over night. What's the secret Chandu? Oddity in the news: Seen prior to the showing of the cinema, Sunday even­ing was " Sea Gull" Crego minus hat and coat indulging frantically in a gedunk. Looks like we have an Es­kimo midst our three Rover Boys. * * * * An admirer contributed the following: Harry " Salty" Jones has found a re­lief for his ever ailing feet. Says the formula is H20 and Soap. • • • • Sure feel sorry for those men on the anchor detail these days. All they seem to be doing is manning their stations and staying wet most of the day. • I • Sports .... Whaleboat Race Scheduled The final heavy cruiser whaleboat race of the ye~ r will take place be­tween selected crews on Friday, 11 March, and all hands are asked to give their complete support to the HOUSTON oarsmen. Other athletics on the ship are being given a contin­ual boost forward and we can make it a hundred percent by just a little more enthusiasm or encouragement for thJse who wield the oars. A most intensive training schedule will be necessary during the next two weeks at anchor in order to get a FIRST ! ! ! Don't forget what the CHICAGO did in the last race- and we can't let an old rival show us up twice in a row. ComCruScoFor Sweater A black sport sweater was presented to E. A. Chick, Sea. Ic, by Commander Cruisers for Chick's excellent work in representing the cruisers in the All Navy Wrestling Contests. Being All Navy Champion has its just rewards. Page 3 IT The editor tells me that this is to be a Gunnery Issue and so, Gunner's Mates and others of your ilk, watch out for here it comes. IT Johnny Sharp, GM2c, has been mak­ing quite a splash in the Hollywood area lately in these fancy " civvies" of his. Take it easy kid, some of the storekeepers have a pretty big option on some of that country. IT A certain Turret Captain first ask­ed for " Love boat" duty and that day it rained. He now claims that Jenkins, GMIc, knew it was gonna rain and put it over on him ( Pappy). IT Gunner's rate sure must be going down hill! Saw a Watertender in the Armory one day recently and have no­ticed him around there a lot since; been wondering if he was thinking of changing his rate. IT When it comes to lady- killin', Hub­bard, CTC of turret one, is right on the job. It seems he asked a girl friend of one of the other Gunner's Mates on the ship why she wasted time on a mere first class; why not come along with a chief who had some real dough? IT Witless Wimpy Wilkinson, " Gun­ner's Mate ( if he's lucky) to be," of the " F" Division, was running around the other day with a hot water bottle in his grasp. Said it was for his stom­ach but we have our doubts. Is it true that Buck Weaver, CGM, is trying to lose weight? He was play­ing volleyball on the beach in uniform and says all that kept him from being in a bathing suit was there were none large enough to encircle his girth. IT What part does Henry, GMlc, play in causing all the compartment clean­ers and so on back aft to keep their paint guarded so closely? Some folks say that he is painting the magazines and is too lazy to walk to the paint locker and draw his own paint. ( Continued on palrc '.)
