Transcript 2~--------- THE BLUE BONI '. i:::' -: THE BLUE BO ET:- A weekly publication of the ship's com­panyof the U. S. S. I: ouston. Captain G. N. Barker. US. N., Commanding and Com­mander C. A. Bailey, U. S. N., Executiv( Officer. Editor: Ensign J. P. M. Johnston A•• iatant Editor: Ensign W. C. Leed,. Cartoonist: W. C. Ridll" c Circulation M. A. Pipp. Yeo3c Printer E. Essy, Sea 2c Capt. Barker Leaves Housto " The cruise has been a succes:; from every point of view." We borrow a phrase from the President of the United States, des­cribing a cruise longer than the on3 of which the President spoke, bat still under the same Captain,- this entire cruise at sea with Captain George N. Barker. We've enjoyed all the special cruisi:. g and all the hard work when­ever e have been with the Fleet. We've appreciated efforts to take us to " ,€" esting ports and to give us a max. mum of shore leave and liberty once we were there. Most of all, we've been proud of our ship. Captain Barker came to the Hou­ston from the R. O. T. C. Unit at Har­vard University, Cambridge, Mass­achusetts. When he leaves the ship about the 24th of this month he will return to his former duty with the R. O. T. C. unit at Harvard. The officers and men are glad to have served with you, Captain Barker. Our good wishes go with you as you leave us. .. , .. Capt. Cogswell Takes Command Captain Francis Cogswell, who took command of the Houston Wed­nesday morning this week, has, for the last three years, been Naval At­tache and Air Attache for Paris and Madrid, serving under the Ambassa­dor to France, the Honorable William C. Bullit. Previous to 1936 he was in command of the U. S. S. Oglala, which in 1934 headed a survey of the Aleu­tian Islands. The new Commanding Officer was born in New Hampshire and was ap­pointed to the Navy Academy from that state in the class of 1!) 08. IIe is a recipient of the Navy Cross an:] ( Continued from last issue) Out at the station this reporter iT. et a fellow named Yanutz, SC1c who was butcher on the Rambler Ship out in Asia when Vance was Chief CO; lmissalY Steward on the ship. He WOJld like to go back on the Houston for duty; that's nothing, so would lictle Ocko! He i , at prese:: t, c:> m­1.1; s~ ary on the destroyer De olVey. Here on the Pensacola, we have our olJ shipmate, 11'. W. J. English, Boatswain, who met me on deck my first day on board. He surely does look swell in that new uniform and he hasn't allowed it to make any change in his head size. He's the same numbel' one good people he always \ las. We are all glad to see him go­ing up thac old ladder the way he is. Everyone of course remembers Charlie " Yap Yap" Campell, Cox­swain, who left the Rambler Ship a bit over a year ago. He, too , is on here, an: l making as much needless noise a:; usual. Seems he's sort of a leading seaman in the fourth division on here now. For the benefit of those interes­ted: To:':'~ YJace, The Porthole, North Star Cafe and all the <- ther bars and hostelries of which the lads are so fond, al e still running t! 1o' some of them h..:. vc been repainted and remo­deled. The back part of Tom's Place looks quite different and by the way, for those interested the Rodman Club is still here, too. ~ . . a graduate of the aval War College in the senior courses in Strategy and Tactics. The entire ship is looking for­wad to service under Captain Cogs­\", ell. Knowing that we speak for all han! s, the Blue Bonnet wiskes him _, .11', 11 welcome and pleasant duty Oil the Houston. Congratulations are in order for all the lads who made rates since I said " Adios" at the time I left, and especially to those who have made the coveted butons. I see that Jim K. Wallace hit the list for CGM, and Joe Comer for CEM; Lewis sew­ed on his buttons for Chief Bo'n's Mate, and has the distinction of hav­ing a fine canine named in his honor. The dog is called " Spike", after one of Lewis' oldtime nicknames in San Di­ego. Have you guessed whose dog it is yet, Chief? It belongs to Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hay at the Crow's Nest on F Street in San Diego. He's a fine pap, too. Having read from end to end all the copies of the Blue Bonnet that P: pp, ( have you made that crow yet, Pipp ?) so obligingly mailed to me, I am fairly well up on Houston news. Was sorry to learn of Lt. ( j. g.) Mc­Donald's transfer to Honolulu. He is a fine officer with the best interests of everyone around him at heart no roeed to say more.. One of the Yard workmen, re­membering when the Houston fed soup and sandwiches in cold weather to all hands every morning and after­noon, said to me, " When is that good ship you used to be on, the Houston, gonna come in?" Nearly as I can find out, it is due here on 10 July. At any rate, hurry, for heaven's sake, cause myoId bunk in the Cook's and Baker's Compartment is crying for me. My very best wishes to all hands, and I do hope you have had a very pleasant cruise. Your Nosey Reporter, Little Ocko on the U. S. S. Pensacola ,. .. ., Six Year Enlistment Adopted Effective on the first of July this year will be the new enlistment per­iod. All first enlisments after the first of July will be for six years. However, second enlistments will remain the present four year period that they are now. It is planned to change the " shipping- over" enlistment to six years. If you are going to " ship- over" better do that or this six year sec­ond enlistment will creep up on you. The new legislation has decreed that eighteen years will be the young­est that any person can enter the Navy. He still will have to have the parents consent to enlist.
