Transcript Volume VI, Number 7. San Pedro, California 21 May, 1938. Blue Bonnet Articles Often Reprinted " EDITOR'S note: We take pleasure in quoting the below article from the " Blue Bonnet", ship's paper of the heavy cruiser, U. S. S. Houston, recently returned in company with the U. S. Fle~" from the Hawaiian Islards. Our fond memories of he Magic Isles are identical ' lith those expressed in >-, ar-ticle. But our remembra ~.. • al- ~ .~ ways been so variNl ... ,' sr! · anting ..... that we dared n to 1\-. lm in-to words, lest llhould fail to do them justice and mar their beauty." Once again the BLUE BONNET is mentioned in other Navy publications. In the last issue of " NAUTICAL NOVELTIES" which is published by the Navy Recruiting Sta­tion, Salt Lake City, Utah, ( Lieuten­ant J. L. Graham, U. S. N. - Editor) " Fond Memories of Hawaii" was reo printed. This article was written by the BLUE BONNET'S editor and ap­peared in the issue of the BLUE BONNET just after the Houston left the Islands. Over 300 copies of the BLUE BONNET are mailed each week to: Recruiting Stations throughout the United States, other ships and sta­tions of the Navy, Army and Navy ( Continued on Paae •. ) Other Navy publications and ship's papers have used the Blue Bonnet articles from time to time. We feel proud of our ship's paper and desire that it be used to benefit any part of the Navy. Paper And Printing PROBABLY you have read many, many ship's papers, but have you ever IItopped to consider what is behind this little sheet you are holding? Had you lived many years ago this sheet would have been a thin pellicle of papyrus - the plant from which paper takes its name - and it would have been in a roll, like the ones used on a player piano. Part of this sheet you hold was once a tree ­you may have climbed this sheet once. And the larger part of the remainder you may have worn at one time be­cause it is made from old rags. This tree and those old rags were teasled out, boiled under pressure in a bi­sulphite of lime solution, bleached, rinsed a dozen times or so, run out on a web, pressed and surfaced in a cal­endaring machine, then sold to the United States Navy. The printing of · . the let­ters of this sheet was a far more difficult problem and printing, as wa know it, first made its infant- like de­but about the time Columbus came ov­er. For many decades each little let. ­ter was picked up, placed in its place, ( Continued on P& lte 2.) Wardroom Party This will be the last time many of the officers aboard this vessel will ever be together as quite a few officer personnel are being de­tached to other details of the Nzvy. T HE HoustoR wardroom officers are gIVIng a costume- hard- times party next Thursday night which promises to be both novel and entertaining. Humorous invitations have been sent out so that those who are coming can be all set to enter in the fun and spirit of the occasion. Sweep the cobwebs off your old bus, crank it up, and head it towards Los Angeles. On the out­skirts of L. A. swing left until you run across Vermont Avenue. Turn right on Vermont and continue on this avenue to its very end. You will find yourself in Griffith Park - and by looking up, on top of the extreme left hill, perched like an eagle's nest jutting towards the sky, you'll see a building with three copper domes. This is the planetarium. Follow the winding road up into the hills until your bus grinds to a stop in front of a beautiful lawn, flowers, and landscaped entrance to the planetarium. From the inspiring height at this point one can see the city of Los Angeles, spread out far below like a vast sea - a maze and hodge podge of buildings, houses, streets, and tracks. On one of the hills nearby i8 a huge block of upright letters spel · ling out the word " Hollywoodland". A few years ago a woman committed suicide by jumping off the 1st " L" in ( Continned on paa. 3.) Visit The Planetarium HAVE you ever had the yen to look through a giant telescope at one of the heavenly bodies? If you have, the ideal place for you to visit is the Planetarium, lo-cated in Griffith Park, Holly­wood. Not only will you have a chance to look at other bod­ies in the universe, but you will be surrounded on all sides by evidences of astronomical sciences - the right atmosphere to make one interested if not already.
