Transcript 1 Well, a week in which I did not have any dope on the lads of the Houston it is about time that I get down to business and tell a few more sea stories. 2 Got quite a bit of cooperation from the BB Contribution Box these past two weeks, so we'll look that over first. Here's an item from the Engineer's Force: 3 Anyone missing the coffee throw­ing contest in No. 3 Messing Compart­ment the other night between Mc­Culloch and Krecklow of the fighting ' M' missed the Battle of the Century. It seems that some don't care for sug­ar in their coffee. With or without, its much better on the inside boys ! 4 Someone else says: " I do solemn­ly swear never to tell anyone that Shoemaker's ( of the ' M' Div.) dearest friends call him " Shoosy- Woosy". Tsk Tsk- and- Oh My! Such a name for a proud husband and papa. 5 And here's one that begins: " Hon­orable sirs: ( First time anyone ac­cused this fellow of being very hon­Ql'able for some time) I have read in the Blue Bonnet that you wish new ideas and more contributions. Upon investigation I have found that most men want a Bank Night at the movies. Once a week. The prize to be a Ship's Service Coupon Book. The rules: ­when each person draws a coupon book let him put a certified copy of the number in a box; the box to be opened at the movies one night in each week. The winner of the draw receives a free book of Ship's Service Coupons. How's that for an idea ? ? ? 6 Little Ocko thinks that would be a good idea if the Ship's Service Offi­cer and others concerned could be con­vinced of the same. THE BLUE BONNET 7 For the person' who put the cut of the Captain and the Seaman in the box, thanks, and Ocko will see if he can get some action on it for you. Also the menu of the Quentin Cafe. 8 Here is a question for you all: What is the name of the march played at the beginning of the Fox Movie­tone Newsreels? Anyone that knows the name of it please put it in the BB . Contribution Box in No. 1 Mess. Com't. Thanks. 9 Ed. P. Shivel, BM2c, of the fourth div. left the Houston for the Turkey, a minesweeper. Shanny O'Niel, Sea­man Sails Striker is singing the blues that he missed out on going to the Oriole for duty as a seaman. Better luck next time feller. 10 And who was it that pinned the black eye on the Mighty Hank of the Scullery? Fooling around wrest­ling on the messdeck is the cause of worse things than black eyes. 11 Stachnik, BMlc, of the second division, went out on sixteen last Friday, 8 July. Good luck on the out­side Shipmate. From what we hear you may need it. 12 Some news of former shipmates includes the following: Reynolds, SC3c paid off a couple of weeks ago, was seen on the way to his home at Tex­arkana, Texas; said he had a job waiting. S. N. ' Big Red' Lewis, MM2c, formerly of the M division is ship­ping over and trying to get back on the Houston. Willie Burke, former cox'n. of the first, shipped over in San Francieco last Wednesday, for duty on the East Coast. Sonneman, ex- F div. seaman is on an oil- tanker, mak­ing pretty good money. Hope he stays. Morris Lee, SM3c, well liked sailor on the Houston is bunting tosser on a ' tin can' in San Diego area now. Randall, CRM, out recently on 20, sent words of greetings to his old shipmates and words of thanks to the members of the Radio Gang for the gifts he received after he arrived home. Chas. Sessions, Slc, recently paid off from the fourth division has shipped over and gone to duty in the Asiatic Station. Good Luck ! ! ! Page 3. 13 We've just received some new recruits aboard from the Training Station at San Diego. Welcome aboard fellows, Hope you have a good cruise. 14 Big shift the past week in the deck petty officer forces aboard; Whi­tey Wellbourn, BMlc, long time jim­my- legs on the Rambler Ship, goes to the fourth division; Sammy Fox, BM lc, fourth to F; Machado, BM2c, F to second; Malcolm, Cox'n, third to the P<? lice Petty Officer Force. 15 The Exec's Office says quite a few of our shipmates are about to be paid off and try it once more on the U. S. S. Outside. Among them are the following:- Knowlden, K. C. Y3c Crayne, T. F. SM3c Ryan, R. J. Flc Jones, C. D. Slc Sheffield, H. L. Slc Duggan, E. F. RM2c Garcia, E. O. RM2c Jones, M. F. Slc Harrison, F. A. Slc ewberry, R. K. SC2c Vendetti, . J. CCStd( AA) Well, Good Luck Fellers. Drop a letter to the Blue Bonnet and let us know how it is out there . Might want to try it some day ourselves. That's all Fellers, there ain't no more. Little Ocko will be back next week, thanks for listenin'. ..... I Don't Get It She laughed when I at down to play, how did I know she was ticklish? Two old maids went for a tramp in the woods. The tramp escaped. " Going out tonight?" " ot completely." It is better to have loved a short gal, than never to have loved a tall. A lady we know walked out on her husband because he couldn't stand the way she talked. Now, she's gone home to mutter. He who laughs last didn't get the joke in the first place.
