Transcript Page Two THE BLUE BONNET After February 4 no more appli­cations for government insurance will be accepted in the pay office. All persons with dependents are urged to taka the opportunity of getting this insurance, the cheapest insurance on sale in the country. If any of you plan to leave the Service after your enlistment, you will espe­cially want insurance then, and now is the time to get it. This National Service Insurance is good for a period of five years, upon which it may be converted to a lifetime policy under several plans. Ensign P. R. Clark, ( SC) USN, states, " This is the last opportunity for any man in this ship to get government insurance. Many people do not realize that they can get government insurance for as little as 60 cents per month." DIVINE SERVICES At 0930, Main Deck Aft. Catholic Church party to USS Canopus at 0900. Bible Class, at 1800 Tues. and Thurs., forward of small stores; enter by hatch forward of Sick Bay. Officers and men are cordi­ally invited to attend. TRIP TO CHURCHES OF WALLED CITY FEBRUARY 2 Ouch! " Do you know Art?" " Art who?" " Artesian." " Sure. I know Artesian well." e · ". t .' 1'" Sunday afternoon at 1 : 00, the Chaplain will leave the ship with a party to visit the churches of the Walled City. Any who care to join the party will be welcome. For those who desire a souvenir of the trip, there will be available, at ONE PESO per copy, Chaplain O'Reilly's " Inter­esting Churches of Old Manila", just recently published. r- - the- latest and probably the best pamphlet on these churches.

EDITORIAL We showed him the officers soft­ball team that had won every game. We reminded him of our racing whale­boat crew working out twice a day getting ready for next Saturday's race. We told him of the BLUE BON­NET'S firm belief in the value of athletics, and its policy to push ath­letics and bolster up the Houston spirit at every opportunity. With each sentence his face bright­ened up a little; more, and still some more, till he broke out in a grin. " I guess I was wrong. The new Houston spirit will start with me. From now on you can count on me to be booster for the Houston, every time." How about it, men. Why not let the new Houston spirit start with YOU? THE BLUE BONNET Named for the State Flower of Texas, and published every two weeks by the ship's company of the USS HOUSTON, Captain J. B. Oldendorf, USN Commanding, Com­mander H. L. Grosskopf, USN, Executive Officer. The custom has grown in the Navy of writing the log of the first watch of the year in poetry. We print here-with the Houston's New Years Log, written by Lt. Galbraith and Ensign Mallory.

Three slightly deaf sailors were motoring from the north, to London in an old noisy car, and hearing was difficult. As they neared the city, one asked: " Is this Wembly?"
