Transcript THE BLUE BONNET Page Three. NOSEY NEWS "BOUT / J { EV'BODY (&>&> BUM 'Frisco once again—but what has happened to all the appeal this old favorite city of the seafarers used to hold. 'Tis possible the good city of Portland has really won over our Native Sons more than we suspected. The echos of praiseworthy comment of that enjoyable week in the city of Roses is still heard about the decks. ******** This should be proof enough that Portland did something to some of the boys. McCrea of the "F" who has won fame in becoming seasick at the first turn of the screws, was on deck throughout the short trip from Portland. ******** After those Portland "Blondes", 'Casvnoaova' Hampton of the Flag, claims that his romance in Spokane was just a fascination. Maybe 'tis the gypsy in him? ******** Even Sessions of the boat deck fell by the wayside when one of those webfoot Blondes lent a pretty ear to his supplications. The President of the Golden Grain Club should be kept busy soon. ******** Even our wandering Lothario of the "S", Sivak admits he may decide to follow in the footsteps of McElhan- non? ? ? ? ******** We were sure Starck, the light- haired shipfitter, would be in better humor after we noticed he had cast loose the moorings for one grand eve. ******** Beckwith, ye printer's devil no. 2, admits a visit to the farm territory in Oregon has done wonders for him. He says he can appreciate fresh milk now that he has been properly introduced to a beautiful member of the Bovine family. It all came about when a young dairy maid took the former "ity youth out to the farm. Reports indicate Zainfeld, the lad who changes his heart affairs with every tide is deeply interested in a fair resident of Tacoma. Of course he is not the only Houstonite who withstood the Portland onslaught in favor of the Northern maids. ******** "Snooky-Puss" Nydegger did his best, so he relates, in trying to revive chivalry among the sea-roving gigi- los. It all happened at one of those enjoyable dances. Snooky was doing the hand kissing act quite frequently, but his persistance ran out on him at the critical moment. His shipmates were too busy dancing, to notice his sincere efforts. ******** A new competitor has been uncovered for our old Bar-Burpin Baritones. Berg, the master of many arts, thrilled should we say nightly, much to the enjoyment of the cash customers in several beer joints. Mi-.ybe a certain Major of the air-waves could use his unusual vocal eruptions? ******** Of the many varied methods of making a liberty in this Navy, Acuto could probably tell of the most unusual. While in Portland he discovered a "Davit-head" liberty was very suitable to his purpose. ******** The head baker is silently rejoicing all because he managed to get through the Portland visit without a discolored optic. Some say the man is gradually learning the ways of the sea even though he has 17 years service ? ? ? ******** Just how Stafford managed to forsake his Western Romances long enough to go ashore is a mystery. That rugged son of the sea only recently stated he was through with those short but sodden liberties. His seawall talks seemed to give him great pleasure though. ******** The mail orderly was seriously thinking of asking for a working party when he collected that load of sugar reports destined for recently departed ports in the Northwest. 'Tis said he could have actually used a squad upon picking up the mail for the ship. Many Wash, and Ore. pos- marks were in evidence in that lot. Just goes to show you how fickle the hearts of men become when in strange climes. We all rejoice with Pop Adkins in his obtaining a brand new, unused "Temperance" pledge blank. The old man of Central Station has admitted he was frankly worried over it. Says he has reached the stage where Spartan will power alone will not help him when the tempation arises. ******** Cooke, the "Terror' 'of the "G" probably has a good tale included in his store of "True Experiences" since that recent big night in Portland. We hear he went in like the 1st of March and came out like the 31st. Possibly he wonders what became of his two Dit-Da pals?? ******** "WUXTREE"! In spite of a most successful evolution in handling the bullets etc., last Thursday PM, "Shotgun" Asher missed the first "GG" Special. It is supposed thos great No. 1 man of the club got fouled up with his Zipper bag. Something should be done about this situation. SHIPPING AUTOMOBILES The prohibition against shipment of privately owned automobiles has been modified. Necessary changes will be made in the Bureau of Supplies and Accounts and duly issued to the service. Application for shipment shall be submitted in letter form and must be accompanied by a certified copy of the latest permanent change of station orders. Application for shipment of autos of enlisted men must be approved and forwarded by their immediate Commanding Officer. The application should give name, make and over all dimensions. These applications will be considered in the order received except that those for Guam and Guantanamo will be given a preference. <■■■> The Jewish couple took their baby- to the movies, where they were warned that unless the child was quiet, they would have to take their money and leave. Half way through the feature film the wife turned to her husband and whispered: Wife: "Veil, vot do you tink of it?" Ikey: "Rotten." Wife: "Yes. Pinch the baby." The folks at home will enjoy reading the Blue Bonnet. Mail it!
