Th3. nks, pal! I'll do as much for you some day. The girls at Ritz Cocktail Lounge are somewhat offended because Chief Yeoman MacCumber shave::! off his mustache. Just why? And also why the razor act, Mac? Chief Bos'n's Mate Proimos \; a., reported as having policed the dock the night we entered with a ball bat and fishing tackle. The idea was if he failed to hook one before the dock got dry, he could knock one in the heal with a Babe Ruth swing. Rumor is out that CDM Le · . vis may go to duty on the U. S. S. New Or e3. TIs. In that case, we wish " Sp'ke" u lot of good luck and haPP7 cru'si J~~. IJ Evcryl; ody Ha py? - .
