Transcript THE BLUE BONNET Page Three Howdy Folks! Here's Mister Chatterbox comin' right at ya' with another one of our prattle fests. Before Old Adam gallops across your sensitive sensibilities with the weekly batch of grandiose garrulity, vague verbosity and urbane utterances, may he pause for just a moment and in all sincerity wish his listeners much joy and happiness at Eastertime. ******** The Gong for Adam! The "Meir" who received unwelcome publicity last week is really Weir of the "2nd" and he's been at it again: Sunday afternoon found him on an uncharted bilge exploration because a fair damsel came aboard unexpectedly. An orchid to McNiel for resciung the lady in distress. Tuesday, someone sent the same Weir a fake telegram. Imagine his chargin when upon arriving at the dock, breathless but spic and span, there was no lady to greet him. ******** Scoop! Longtime G.G. Club member goes astray For some reason, Osborne, Nav Yeoman, decided to Prove to all and sundry that he wears the male attire in his family. Using one of the Pike's better known rendezvous, "The Keg", as a proving ground, he did himself proud as an imbiber, then sauntered??? home to the other half. Bravo fellow! Well Proven .... but we wonder if the seas oi matrimony became too stormy for navigation ? ******** Unusual, Unusual Weather .... Or Was It?? Will all native sons, in- eluding the "Third's" Fantail booster, Til "arrison> explain the rattling *°od Hail Storm on the second day "spring. No evasions accepted.... 6 Want fact* and plenty of them. Have a Giggle: A St Pat's Day card in a bright green envelope came to a Houstonite who's name is G-Z-M-O-C-I-N-S-K-I. Pronounce it?!! I can't spell it!!! That ought to make the dear old Saint turn over in his grave. ******** Flash! The Long Beach Press Telegram is our authority for this news item: Captain George N. Barker has been ordered to command U.S.S. Houston. Date of arrival not known. We are sorry to see Captain Baker leave and he may be sure this is the sincere expression of the entire ship's company. ******** Rumor-Rumor-Who's Got a Rumor? Just about everybody had one this week. "The ship is to leave the Repair Ship Monday." ... "We're going to Bremerton next week." ... "We're going East." .. . "The ship won't go on the Cruise." These and many more flew thick and fast, seemingly on good authority and especially the first one. (Someone overheard the Captain say so!) Perhaps so, but, he wasn't talking about the ship; he referred to his family leaving for the East. ******** Bazooka Backer: Starkie, Shipfitter second class, insists there's plenty of music in the instrument made famous by the Squire of the Ozarks. To prove it he's manufactured one and expects to master the darned thing in no time. After experimentation, this stillson wrench maestro decides the bazooka can stand improvement; he plans one patterned after "the music goes down and around" type of horn. Perhaps Bob Burns should look to his laurels. ******** That Reminds Me: The same Gentleman from Arkansas sez: "After seein' some of the new Easter hats the wimmin are wearin'. I thing it's time for Queen Mary to laugh!"... We agree! ******** Question: A reader poses this one: "Does anyone care to know what a Rope Yarn Sunday means in the "Thirsty Third?" Answer: Turn to! and more turn to! ******** Hiss Horse Opera: The stay-aboards had fun aplenty t'other evening. If the director and producer of that rootin' tootin' drammer of the stagecoach days, "California Mail," could have heard the boisterous reaction on this ship there would be fewer of the fiimsy type of Western pictures. Boos, hissing, catcalls and derisive laughter greeted nearly every scene ... Maybe we're wrong tho ... Perhaps it was meant to be comedy. ******** Popular Frankster: When a man liberty bent is detained against his will, things begin to happen. If the inside of one of the catapult towers looks like something had exploded violently, it's because Sheriff "Tiny" Rimmer locked up Rosenkrans of the "Flying Fools" just a little while before departure of the early shore boats. He made more noise than a Missouri mule in a sheet iron barn. ******** Brief Brevities: Jimmy Franklin, while passing thru Dallas, Texas, recently, was royally entertained by the local Navy Girls' Club ... They have thirteen pretty members—what a time he must have had! ... The "Rover Boys" Vizard and Latour have plenty of Houston company in their perennial rendezvous at the Majestic. All that's needed now is someone to sound "Quarters" and muster all hands... A new edition to the Sick Bay personnel was seen flaunting a brand-new crow and hash mark in the same Ballroom ... You have to put up with four years of tough sledding to rate one of those "bean bars," buddy ... Robinson, Watertendei-' told a handsome brunette in the Rest- well Cafe that he would personally bring her a seal skin coat from Alaska... So that's where we're going! If you wonder about the sudden appearance of so many healthy coats of tan ... There's a group of the lads who soak up sunshine on the Boat Deck every noon hour and other odd times ... Good old California sunshine when it shines! . . . Weir stumbles into the spotlight again: He passed up the Houston on the shore boat and landed on the Nevada, disgruntled, disgraced and dumb founded! .. .Our Mister House declared that the quintuplet picture, "Reunion" was no proper cinema fare for rough sailors . .. But... He was there, and sat thru to the bitter end, impatiently, we imagine... Picture this: McClure and Rabyk, s o m e t i me "Steve Brody," marching down the Pike full of masculine independence, refusing to give two good-looking girlies the least bit of a tumble ... Why ? ... Maybe they (Continued on Page Four)
