Transcript Let us take a look at the stuff from the Contribution Box this evening. One about Nicolette but it is rather out of date so we'll let it go. Here's one from topside around the Carpen­ter Shop: Someone please name the Three Musketeers of the D& R ( Des­truction and Repair) Gang!!! They are generally spoken of as the Jeep, the Woodpecker and Strapiron. Who could they be? Little Ocko says; " I wonder too." * * * * A die- hard pollywog puts in his oar to tell us that the Royal Mackerel, box and all, went over the side in true seamanlike manner. Footnote: It was odorifous too!!! L. O. says how about those Eggs? ? ? * * * * " To the BLUE BONNET: ( appar­ently from the radio shack) After listening to the band ' swing it' like they do I think that most of the ship's company would like a dance on board once in a while. The hangers and quarterdeck provide ample space for it so why not put it up to the crew; if one went well why not have more of them? It would help raise the ship's spirit and all hands would have a good time of it....." Thanks feller, but what are you going to dance with? Mermaids? ? * * * * ow I'll tell one: Owens, pudgy Bunting Tosser rang eight bells the other afternoon and no sooner had he done so than Garrett, busy and not hearing them the first time, ran over and struck them again. Sixteen bells for sixteen hundred--- somebody's bell- happy around here!! * * • * J. K. Saucer, seaman bossman of the Div. 2 motor launch, is really home sick for good old L. A. Won't be long before we get home lad, and you can start making the first liberty boat ashore once more. THE BLUE BONNET Bos'n Mate second with three hash marks, a fellow named Red Clymer gets sunburned feet scrubbing down last week ending up under the Doc­tor's care in the Sick Bay. There's one for you; you're never too old to learn. r'~ usta been thinking of something back around Long Beach, eh Red? ? ? * * * * Cochrane, SK2c is all burned up. It seems that Thompson, Storekeeper and photographer extraordinary, fail­ed to bring him back a penguin from Hood Island. Flossy had Sivak all talked into keeping it for him in the ice box but as the bird didn't come the lad is now singing the blues. Gives him a change from his many love affairs anyway. * * * * A couple of busy lads recently have been our friends Barnett, CCStd. and Floyd, the Ship's Butcher. Cleaning and stowing all that fish has become some job, with Vendetti busy getting it in the cooler. Keep it up lads, the fish are good eating. * * * • Many's the lad minus his locks of dark or blond, curly or strai~ ht hair, as the case may be, these days. The Royal Barbers did a lot of unnecessary work that caused a lot of extra ' regular' haircuts in the Ships Service Barber Shop. Too bad you don't get a commission Curly, a feller'd almost think you did after Monday! ! ! * * * • It eems the main attraction of the day is when the boat of our Good Shipmate is hoisted to the rail, and the fish are laid out for weighing and inspection on the quarterdeck. If there was room for all hands it is quite sure they'd be out there, quiet of course, but nevertheless enjoy­ing the fun. Many's the beauty that's been hoisted aboard these past days. Catche that make any true fi her­man's heart leap with pride, and envy too perhaps, if someone else got it. Well, Fisherman's Luck.!!!! SMOKER WELL RECEIVED ( From Page 1.) the limit, the last between Bud Adams and Harris going even an extra round. All in all everyone enjoyed the smoker very much. The supply de­partment and the ship's welfare were very popular at the end when they treated all hands with refreshments. Page 3. THE LAST LOST SHIP The last lost ship of the American Navy to vanish at sea was the fleet tug Conestoga ( 617 tons), commanded by Lieut. E. L. Jones wth a crew of 66 Officers and enlisted men The tug left Mare Island, Califor­nia, on March 26, 1921, bound for Pearl Harbor, Territory of Hawaii. A search covering several months was made in which all available ships and aircraft forces were utilized, but no trace has ever been found a . to the fate of the vessel or her crew. * * * • When pumping water out of a dry­dock, water is pumped in! * • * * Cadets at West Point are not in the regular army. * * * * Midshipmen in the Naval Hospital at Annapolis get a lower grade of milk than they do in the Academy mess hall. * • • • avy Regulations forbid cheering any officer of the navy. Judge: " The officer states that he found you two fighting in the street." Sea1c: " That's wrong your Honor. When he arrived we were' trying to separate each other." Old Lady: " Doe this bus stop at the Pier?" Driver: " Well, ma'am, there will be a terrible splash if it doesn't." ew Resident: " I stopped over in San Juan." Old Resident: " Pardon me, but you should say San Huan. In California we pronounce our J's like H's." ew Resident: " Well, you'll have to give me time. You see, I've been in this state only through Hune and Huly."
