Transcript THE BLUE BONNET Quite a few of the boys are wear­ing new stripes lately. C. D. Morris is now Corporal Morris. Also Nanny Skagen and our battling Marine of the 5th. Div., Tillman Bishop, went on leave with their shoulders bent from the weight of their new Chev-rons. Congratulations ! - The Marine Detachment has lost a number of buddies through transfers. Delozier, Bock, Knapp, Benedict, Lurns, Hansen and Osgood. We're " orry to ' see them go and wish them a happy cruise during their next tour of duty. -_........._-- RIGHT HA D SALUTE- TWO WHEN YOU SEE A FELLOW [ N THE U IFORM OF THE Army, Navy or Marine Corps, who, upon passing an officer, either salutes in a hang- dog manned, or else pretends to be too much occupied with some­thing else to salute at all, don't mis­take him for a real soldier or sailor, He's just a person in uniform who thinks he is something that he is not. WHEN YOU SEE A FELLOW IN UNIFORM who, upon passing an officer, snaps his hand to his cap and at the same time looks directly at the officer with a " Good morn­ing, fellow soldier" manner, you may put that fellow down as a real soldier or saiior who respects the uniform and respects himself. IF YOU SEE A~ OFFICE RE­TURN a salute in a lax or slurring manner, you will make no mistake in putting him down as one who has ~: ct to learn the business of an officer. Our good and efficient officer con­siders it a privilege , to answer in kind the military greeting of a real soldier or sailor. THE SALUTE is as much a sign of fellowship among fighting men as it is a recognition of rank. Don't ever forget that, and you'll begin to see something mighty fine and human in the snappy salute that passes be­tween uniformed men. FIFTH COLUMn ( The following is clipped from the Ar:- ny and Navy Register.) Representative Sol Bloom, of New York, in the House of Representatives on May 27, said: " A great deal of curiosity has been aroused recently by the repeated use of the expression ' fifth column' in the press and over the radio. The way in which it has been used has served to give a good idea of its meaning, but very few have known how the term oliginated. " In checking back it is found that the expression ' fifth column' started with Gen. Emilio Mola during the recent civil war in Spain." " During that war Gen. Mola was in command of fJie atlOnalist roops which were marching against Madrid. When questioned about the disposition of his troops he is said to have re­plied: ' We have four columns on the march outside the city. In the city we have a fifth column.' " By the words ' in the city we have a fifth column', he meant that within h~ city he had people working and L. o; ng practically the same thing that tile bunds and other similar organ­,~ ations have done in Czechoslovakia, Austria, Poland, Denmark, Holland, Eelgium and Luxemburg, and as they are doing throughout the United States today." " Thus a new expression was born and added to modern languages. It has come to be associated with any subversive or treacherous undercover ovements made within a country threatened with.. a. t. ack by enemy." REGRET My life is neat and fairly clean My regrets are few- At the moment I can name Only one or two. The only thing that I deplore With prodigality Is that my sin is lacking in Originality. . I · a If you would a wise man be, Five things observe with care: Of whom you speak, To whom you speak, And why, and when, alld where. - Exchange. Page Three JOE DOPE SAYS: A bathing beauty who is really beautiful is worth wading for. bast night I held a hand, So dainty and so sweet, I thought my heart would surely burst So wildly did it beat. No other hand e'er held so tight, Could greater gladness bring, Than the lovely hand I held la t nite, Four aces and a king! " G • DEMOCRACY When Admiral Jellicoe visited the United States, the private car of Charles M. Schwab was placed at his disposal from Canada to New York. Mr. Schwab met the train at Grand Central Terminal, and found the dis­tinguished Englishman and Joe, the colored servitor who had charge of the car for years, kneeling on the Door, playing craps. Joe had initiated the Admiral into the mysteries of the favorite game of his people, and had won $ 40 from his enthusiastic acolyte. During Marshal Foch's postwar visit to America, he also was given the use of the car; and the day before the Commander- in- Chief of the Allied forces was to set out Mr. Schwab summoneo ; roe. " I want you to remember one thing, Joe," he said sternly. " I don't want a repetition of what happened with Admiral J ellicoe. Don't try to get Marshal Foch into a game of crap ." Joe pondered a moment, then con­ceded, " I won't challenge him, Mr. Schwab. But if he done challenge me, I won't allow no one to sweep me off my own front porch." The emphasis has been misplaced. It is not a question of, " Can you take it?", but having taken it, can you carry it away?
