Transcript SOME dirty outcast from some low type of society has kidnapped our MARTHA. No, not the one from the corner bar, nor the little girl with pigtails from your grammar school days, but the one we used to hear over the speaker system on the quar­ter deck in the evenings before movies. The party or parties who did, with ma­lice aforethought take, destroy, hide, or otherwise make away with our fa­vorite, MARTHA, deserve to hang to the port yard and to be shot at on a dark night by a coolie. PLEASE BRING IT BACK ! ! ! LAMBERT, Cpl., and Gossage, WT, are striking for Gunner's Mate it seems. Freeman was holding Field Day in the armory and along came Gunner Selby, who inquired where Herkie got all the hired help. To tell the truth it seems they are just na­turally ambitious and couldn't hold in any longer, they had to help some­body and that seemed the natural place to do it. TUESDAY in the one o'clock boat we were going ashore and it got quite rough and the lads were taking a few over the bow. It was getting to be a case of " Duck when you see the whites of their eyes," when Hank Cromwell, MMlc, took one that was intended for all hands, and he really absorbed it all. Tough luck Hank. His last words were: " Who said you had to stay a­board ship to get your clothing dir­ty?" SPIKE Mullane received guite a hand from the crowd when he passed the word for the messcooks to lay be­low to feed the crew with the refresh­ments from the galley and bake shop. Baldy Davis didn't seem to like the idea of losing his ringside seat to the chiefs but wait till you make the but­tons there Stinky. THE BLUE BONNET HAVE you seen that fine Platoon Sergeant of the Houston detachment, Sam Johnstone wheeling the Ship's Service Bus on the way around the Is­land to and from Honolulu? I must say Sam is no new hand at the wheel, and does a good job herding that thing around. Comes close e­nough to the posts of the Main Gate over here to shave them if they had whiskers. Some of the younger fellows better watch out if he goes after the ladies the way he does that bus. MOHN and Schumacher of the Af­ter Engine Room take the prize for the week. They have been, it was re­vealed to me, passing the time away on the eight to twelve watch down there, in the most modern manner: TRUCKIN'. They truck from eight till eleven and then they turn to and clean up for the watch to relieve them. I've heard of some good ones, but that is about the best. By THE way, Lttle Ocko is going to see if he can find the keys to the Blue Bonet Contribution Box and if and when I do, T will want you fellows to take a hand.. Put the doings of the division in the box and we'll be glad to use it. It is a much nicer paper if all hands have hands in it than just a half dozen or so. Show that real old Houston Spirit. IT COMES to mind that we ought to say something in a way of Thanks to the lads from the Army Base along­side, for the grand manner in which they co- operated in making the Hap­py Hour the Huge Success it was. The boys of the band were, undoubt­edly, a major part of the show. Again, Thank You. DUE TO the fact that he is becom­ing quite adept at shifting from one uniform to the other it is rumored that Ralph Nelson Crego, of the Rov­er Boys, is going to apply for a job as a model at the Naval Clothing Factory. He says he has gained a lot of experience on dress rehersals on the Main Deck Aft recently and feels quite equal to anything a model has to do. SEND THE BLUE BONNET HOME Page 3 Happy Hour A Smash Hit The happy hour started at seven thirty with the visiting Army and its band on the port side and all the Ship's Company manning every avail­able view point on all sides. The Army band did a lot to make the whole a success. Old songs, Old Grey Bonnet, and others brought to mind the good old days. When the " Merry Go Round Broke Down" began the guitar player then broke a string. Completely una­bashed he produced a composite in­strument - flute, piccilo, and whistle. What notes! The music goes down and around and comes out HERE! What chance has a Bos'n mate? The band and happy hour got applause from ship and nearby shore. Lt. ( jg) McDonald explained the rules of wrestling and the bouts got underway. They were the finals of the bouts that we bad in Lahaina. Prizes were issued to both winners and run­ner- ups. The wrestling was refereed by Lt. ( jg) McDonald and judged by Ens. Ely and " Headlock" Wellbourn. ' Head­lock' did the announcing in fine style. Two bouts were won by a default, Drover of A div. and Davis of H& E div. Keimel of A div. and Saunders of F div. had it out, Keimel winning by a fall in 1 minute and 30 seconds. In the next bout Wilkie, A div. won an 11 sec. fall ovel F dv's. Williams of the bright gold swim trunks. First division's Adams entered against Ry­an of M div. Ryan knew what to do and how to do it but Adams was the stronger. Adams was at a disadvan­tage at times not knowing what to do ( Continued on pa~" 4.) HATCH, CQM, is quite the fellow to be wearing the fancy pajamas, and demonstrated his ability to bring home the bacon while we were at Lahaina. He was quite ready to pounce on any fellow who showed up in ordinary ' dungarees' as he called them. Well, he's quiet now. Dutton, CBM, went ashore ? 1ere in Honoulu and the pair he brought back were a sight for sore eyes. The loudest tones of the most brilliant colors he could find, and him a Boatswain's Mate. MY I MY !
