Transcript Page 4 THE BLUE BONNET U. S. S. Houiton- 3- 3- 38- 900. ----- THE POi TER'S HELL Train right! Mark! It's a hit I know. Steady on the white when I let it go. The buzzer again, like a savage bee. Three rounds are out, No Casualty. o o o Tho' sturdy years may do me in, Surprise wiII long outlive chagrin. As finger ' round the trigger gripped, As hell about me wildly ripped. Now moments twang, but stark des­pair Played ' round my face and brushed my hair. Thru' haze and mist came " Ready Two" Another hell I'd make I knew. To further the pro­fessional training of its officers, the navy maintains a war col­lege at Newport, Rhode Island. Here student officers are Ii sent at such periods in their career as will insure thei~' progressive develop­ment. The war college officers three courses, each of 1 year's duration, and a correspon~ ence course. The col­lege is staffed by a group of carefully selected officers whose work is sup­plemented by lectures of leading edu­cators and men of affairs. This year 61 officers completed the courses at the war college. The buzzer, quick, the key I pressed, And deep my heel bit in the rest. The rumbling roar and yellow flare, Was followed fast by swishing air. The breach in yawning hunger woke. " Bore Clear" came hurtling thru' the smoke. A thud, a shell, with quick despatch, The powder in. Clicked the Salvo Latch. In Japan, musical show programs us­ually list the addresses and telephone numbers of each chorus girl. Simon Gomez, brewery worker in Cen­tral Brewery, Mexico City, Mexico, drowned in a tank of beer, June 27 1936. Little Ocko Says ... ( From page 3.) 4 · . Pickins, GM: 3c, is now thinking of the day when, soon after we return from the ensuing cruise, he will mid­dle- aisle it to the tune of " Here Comes the Bride." Wonder if they will play " Anchor's Aweigh," too. Where is the precentage in Jim K. Wallace, GMlc, taking cigars from these newly rated fellows and passing them on to his No. 1 striker, Eli Bud­imlya 1 I! That is enough space for those people, let's see what the rest of the ship's company is doing. I! A few weeks ago Little Ocko was blamed for something that was really not his fault. The Slovak boys, one being a Ship's Cook second class and the other a third class, got mixed up by the printer ( the printer blames the linotype) and the second class was named in place of the third. I'm very sorry this h~ ppened but here is news about Andy, ne. wly rated to second class. It seems that his two playmates, Kunz, the butcher, and Haratyk, the spud cox'n, pla'; ed a bit too roughly with our hero, and it ended with Andy having a fine pair of black eyes, one from bouncing off a swinging bucket and one from running into Haratyk's bony shoulder. Well, that is how it all came about and Andy Slovak, Jr., has been giving excuses on the sub­ject all week. Equilibrium •... An old philosopher is said to have described the attitude of youth toward parents in the following terms: Age 8 years: " My parents are smart. They know everything." Age 14 years: " I don't think that my parents are quite so smart as that. I don't think that they know everything." Age 18 years: " My parents really know very little compared with what I know." Age 22 years: " My parents do not understand the new age. They cannot understand the new age because they do not live up to the notch." Age 30 years: " I often ask myself now, were not my parents right after all 1" Age 50 years: My parents were of vision and conviction. They knew how to do things in just the right way at the right time." An Old Salt Tells One Commander V. D. Herbster, U. S. N., ( Ret.), Naval Aviator No. 4 tells of an interesting experience that hap­pened to him { luring operations with the fleet off Guantanamo during the winter of 1913. It seems that a woman newspaper reporter had obtained permission to take pictures of the planes in flight from the naval authorities and Com­mander Herbster ( Ensign Herbster at that time) obliged by making a hop so that she could get the pictures. Before taking off he pointed out what he thought would be the most advan­tageous position on the sea wall for her purpose. This position happened to be directly in front of the tent used for a hangar. As most persons know, that have spent much time around Guantanamo, the wind sometimes shifts very quick­ly. Ensign Herbster took off, circled, and came in to make a spot landing directly in front of the reporter. The wind however had shifted 180 · and was now on his tail. The tail wind caused him to over- shoot his mark and he was heading directly for the photographer who was looking into her camera and was not aware of what was happening. A mechanic nearby realized the danger of the situation and knocked her clear of the path of the plane. Ensign Herbster cleared' the sea- wall, flew into the tent and set his plane down neatly in the chocks provided for this purpose. • I • ( From Page 2.) much better at flyin' than any other bird in them parts. His mother prais­ed him by tha hour. But one day somethin' happened to tha poor critter. He was followin' tha plane as usual, a doin' stunts with it, and even puttin' a few twists of his own in. Tha aviator put tha plane in a spin. Tha pelican went into a spin. Finally tha plane come outa tha spin. But nobody had told tha unusual bird how to come outa tha maneuver so he went spinnin' on into his last crash. And that was tha end. It only goes to show a body what'll happen if he begins to put his thinkin' matter to somethin' he was never intended to do. Love, Gus. GUS'S WEEKLY LETTER
