Transcript Page 4. San Francisco Bridge ( From Page 1.) The Golden Gate Bridge opened on 28 May, 1937, cost about $ 33,000,000 and is the longest single span being 4200 feet long. The towers for this suspension bridge are 746 ft. high and the deck of the bridge at the highest point is 200 ft. above the water level. There were 11 deaths during its construction. Rapidly taking shape on Treasure Island is the 1939 San Fran­cisco's World Fair. Some of the build­ings are constructed and sight seeing parties are taken around the island. The island is wholly reclaimed land from the bay, 5520 feet long and 3400 feet wide and 13 feet above sea level and required 20,000,000 cu­bic yards of earth. It will become San Francisco's airport when the fair is over. The fair opens on 18 February, 1939 and closes 2 December of the same year. It is the first inter­national exposition held at San Fran­cisco since 1915 when the completion of the Panama Canal was celebrated. • •• Answers to Questionaire On Page 1. 1. A tapered piece of hard wood, usually about 3 inches in diameter at the large end and about 15 inches long. Used for splicing manila line. 2. Another meaning besides the commission is one which is applied to marlinspike seamanship. It is a large fid used for splicing large ma­nila hawsers. 3. A permanent fixed glass port in the deck, doors, or hatch covers for the purpose of lighting. 4. A line with a thimble on one end. Used as a leader and steadier­a fair lead. 5. A fitting on the forward side of the ship's wildcats- prevents the anchor chain from fouling. 6. An etched mark on the com­pass binnacle giving the ship's head­ing- stationary with the ship's head. Also a line used on a stage to prevent men from falling over the side-- hence its name is derived from the fact that lubbers would be the only ones need­ing it. THE BLUE BONNET What To See ( From Page 1.) steaming pots sit on the sidewalks and prepare the crabs before your · eyes. Joe Di Maggio's Cafe is one of the restaurants here which do a rush­ing business catering to the fish hun­gry public. Golden Gate Park - Take a street car or head your automobile out Ful­ton Street towards the ocean. Within the confines of this immense park is The Flieshacker Zoo with many A­merican animals, the aquarium stock­ed with American game fish, the De Young Memorial Museum on the north side of the park near 10th Avenue with paintings, sculpture, antiques, jewelry, coins, mosaics, furniture, mu­sical instruments, arms & armor, and natural history exhibits. The beaut­iful winding roads through the leafy trees and velvety lawns are a far cry from the sand dunes wich former­ly graced this area. People ridiculed the idea that trees or anything re­sembling a park could ever be con­structed. See for yourself the miracle. Seal Rocks - North of Golden Gate Park Ileal' Topsy's Roost, along the ocean front. Seals bask on the rocks as they rest from swimming in the Pacific. These are only a few of the many attractions of this city, but it will give you a starter for see­ing San Francisco. .... .. I Don't Get It When your heels hit hard, And your head feels queer, And your thoughts arise Like the froth on beer, When you sit around The whole night long, And laugh like hell At some damn fool song, You're drunk, by God! You're drunk! As Shakespeare once said, " Bow legs may not be few, but they certain­ly are far between." When a woman is gQod, that's beaut­iful. When a woman is beautiful, that's good. But when a woman is good and beaut­iful, that's a shame. U . S. S. Houston 7- 9- 38 900. That in the new building of the De­partment of the In­terior in Washing­ton, there are 1000 electric clocks, 3681 inside doors, and 20 high- speed elevators. That in the city of New York there are more Germans than there are in Bremen, more Irish than in Dublin or Belfast, and more Italians than in Rome. Yet, the Jewish popula­tion is thirty percent of the total. That an old New Englander sea captain, Hancock Gregory, gave the modern doughnut its hole. The date of the great contribution was 1847. The Captain was a boy at the time. Watching his mother fry doughnuts, he noticed that the centers of the cakes were always doughy, so he sug­gested that this portion of the cake be eliminated before the cakes were cooked. Laughingly she followed the suggestion, and the result was so satisfactory that she never went back to the old way. Her method was cop­ied by others until it spread over the whole country. • •• My Old Ford Of myoId Ford everyone makes fun; They say it was born in nineteen one. Maybe it was, but this I'll bet, She's good for many a long mile yet. The windshield's gone; the radiator leaks, The fan belt slips and the horse power squeaks, She shakes the screws and the nuts are all loose, But I get 40 miles on a gallon of juice; When lean't get gas I burn kerosene. And I have driven home on Paris green. She has a rattle in front and a grind in the rear, And a Chinese puzzle for a steering gear: Her coils are dead; her plugs won't fire, And her piston rings are baling wire. But in spite of this she pulls me through And that's about all any car can do. Witk Itigh- priced cars they give you tools, So", e llxtra parts and a book of rules; A few wire stretchers and a pair of shears Are 1\ I have carried in 15 years. And If I live to see the day She falls to pieces like the one horse shay, If old Hank Ford stays in the game I'll buy another by the same durn name.
