Transcript Page Four. THE BLUE BONNET USS Houston—3-27-37—800. Dear Sal, Say, this here layin' alongside tha repair boat may be great guns to some but she sure puts tha crimp in a body makin' tha beach. In tha old stamp- in' water one could get tha urge and be ashore all fresh as a daisy, but now when a body gets tha hankerin' to stretch his legs on tha soil, tha feelin' is battered from his soul and body on tha way in. Puts me in mind o' how strong an urge can really be. My brother Norval went to sleep one night, a feelin' a gnawin' in his vitals and tha urge to eat great quantities o' victuals. Ma cut his rations short for supper (corn meal mush and milk) and held him to a kettleful o' mush with two gallons o' milk. He started a havin' dreams o' food, but tha cold ate inta tha marrow o' his bones, and he awoke to find the top covers and half tha mattress gone. Pa alius said there's more stomach to him than a penful o' fattenin' barrows. So Easter is- about to break tha shell o' hidden obscurity. Females bedecked with fine raimet and puddin' bowl bonnets will be a struttin' their stuff on tha avenues, and the males will be a slitherin' by their sides; maybe their old suits will be a bearin' the shine o' tha pressin' iron and maybe they'll be a wearin' their old hat with a new crease. Anyway, says I, 'tis a heap different from tha birds and foul. Tha male does tha struttin' there. But as Pa says, females is a necessary evil. Allah, give me sin. So, Sal you say you told clumsy, blubberin' hayseed, Felix Jackson, tha lowdown about what I was a goin' to do his frame if he dinna turn his feet from your doorstep. Just tell him confidential like that Gus is got the whole United States Navy back o' him. They'll be a comin' up there at my yell, and wipe Felix with his whole forty acres and cesspool right off this here earth. Ain't that some- thin' ? Though we be rocked in tha cradle o' tha deep and breathe pure sea air (when tna wind's not a bio win' tha graveyard o' fish smell from Pedro) we can stick out our upper lips at times and make tha cursed feel we're tha spawn o' tha devil. So to you this time I say awe reservoir, whicn means in trench I'm a ciosin' tha hatch. Love, Gus CAMERAS TO BE PERMITTED INSTALLMENT CONTRACTS (Continued From Page Two) of station tnis mignt prove inconvenient. Suppose the agent says, "Oh! That's just a formality we have in all our contracts. We don't enforce that a- gainst men in the service". Don't be a sucker. Tell him to get his "Head Office" to modify the contract before it's completed, or no sale. If he won't change, you'd better pass up the deal. If he says he'll change it, see if the contract denies him such authority. Be assured that if he insists that the plain written terms of the contract are not binding, he is lacking either in scruples or intelligence. You may know of numerous cases in which such contracts were not enforced because it suited the company, but that does not deny their rights to enforce them if they decide to do so. Repossession Suppose you fall behind in your payments each month for several months during which the seller makes no complaints then one day you go ashore and the wife says, "Oh! What do you think? The man from the Guaranteed Gadget Sales Company came out today and took our gadget and says we'll have to pay to have it overhauled and we don't get any refund on the money we already paid them." Unfortunately that will quite possibly be just about the size of things. You will very likely find that the sales contract permits the seller to waive a delinquency and then suddenly clamp down. Is it fair? It certainly is if it's in the written agreement. Is it fair for the agent to mislead you? Well, ask yourself if you were fair to yourself and your family when you signed a contract without reading it. If you can't understand the terms proposed, ask advice of a disinterested person such as your division officer. No purchase is apt to be so According to Fleet Memorandum No. 3M-37, the Commander-in-Chief has recommended to the Navy Department that the following be incorporated in a revision of General Order 35 soon to be promulgated to the service: "Cameras are permitted to naval personnel on board naval ships for taking pictures ashore." Before departure of the Fleet on Fleet Problem XVIII the Commanding Officer will issue an order governing the disposition and use of cameras aboard ship. Until this order is published the present restriction, prohibiting cameras aboard ship is to remain in effect. NOSEY NEWS (Continued From Page Three) were full of something else ... Wade, the gull-gunning Boilermaker, reports that this nine-shot compressed air pistol is on its way and he intends making a serious business of teasing innocent sea birds ... For shame! ... McCarty, is among those bitten by the liberty bug, and after all these months of seclusion! ... Is she pretty, Mac? It's time to bring our little broadcast to an end. Au revoir, friends. Don't forget the boos and bouquets are welcome. Thanks for tuning in . .. So long. Joke? The barber shop patron had settled back comfortably in the chair. The barber was applying the brush with generous gobs of nice, fluffy lather. The door to the shop opened and a small boy stuck his head in and yelled: "Your house is on fire, Mr. George- wink!" The customer leaped from the chair, dashed out the door and madly up the street for about three blocks, when he came to a sudden stop and exclaimed: "What the devil am I running for, my name isn't Georgewink!" important that it can't wait while you get advice on it. And remember that the agent is working for the selling company, not for you, the purchaser. Don't think they'll be afraid to lose sales by enforcing their legal contract rights. They do just that every day.
