Transcript THE BLUE BONNET Page Three. NOSEY NEWS by. EV BODY Our second week in San Diego proved to be one busy day after another, and our under cover crew was kept unusually busy trying to keep up with the greatest epidemic of rumors, in the history of the ship. Our stay here has also made many of our good sailormen, airminded, or at least one would think so to hear of the thrilling parachute jumps, (150 feet ?) According to a Long Beach paper the HOUSTON is still in port. Evidently the liberty parties going there have been so large that no one has noticed the ship's departure. Boyle's taxi service to Long Beach is quite popular, so we hear. N. A. S. San Diego seems to be the grave yard for old worn out Houston sailors. Take a look around the Island. Reports indicate that V. L. Meyers of the fourth is taking his preliminary training in the fine art of operating a "Greasy Spoon"???? It is quite possible that our new spud peeling arrangement is one of the best in the fleet. Ask the C.M.A.A. for particulars. Latest reports bring news of Ross, R. M. Sea2c. joining the G.G. Club yesterday. Once again a member of the famous Campbells, this time "Squeaky" EMlc puts the clan in the spotlight. It seems that despite the fact he is a plank owner on board he dosen't know where the sail locker is. 'Tis a good thing he wasn't asked during the recent C.P.O. exams. Many of our boys (light on the hoof) have actually decided that Allen's (the local dance-emporium) has it all over our most popular Majestic in Long Beach. Garcia, our lively main deck Cox. appeared quite bewildered upon returning from leave to find his domain overrun with shops!! It seems, Joe West, our flashy mail man, is being unjustly blamed for many things. We wonder if Zietfuss found some new ideas when he returned and found the sounding machines painted ? ? ? ? A suggestion would seem in order for Black F3c and many more of his shipmates, during this "paint ship" period and that is:—"keep off the paintwork." Maybe the dress blues will last longer. "Better late than never", says Ford- enwalt when taking the grass skirt and trappings ashore. Nelson, the ship's tailor, reports the loss of one scivvie shirt ashore. Anyone wishing to offer condolences call at the shop between 0600 and 0700. Smith, the coxswain of the "grey- ghost" (No. 3.) says the whistle adds one more feature to her many dis- tictions!!!!!! Our dark and (?) handsome coxswain of the boat deck is still trying to solve the problem that arose when he ate an order of ham and eggs and thought it was a ham and egg sandwich. Too much Keno says us. We are all in doubtful anticipation for the sweet music Weeks promises is with his recently overhauled guitar. Cpl. Meyers admits the recent operation on his neck seriously handicaps him in his necking duties. Someone should side in with McElnerts(?) S.K. striker, for Sivak really was too much for him in narrating the story of John L. Sullivan killing a horse with one punch and then his friend Muldoon, throwing said horse over a fence. Taylor, our diminuative M.A.A. is the possessor of that rare quality in being so convincing. His version of falling out of a motor launch was a masterpiece we would say. In a recent issue we thoughtlessly predicted this coming cruise would curtail cupid's rampage aboard this warship. But; Abbott MMlc, Thatcher MM2c, Bennett Flc, Smith, L.M. Sic. are or are just about to be new members of the famous G. G. Club. The line for the stogies will form on the starboard side of the port quarter boom. Well adios for this week. DID YOU KNOW? That there are 521 sailing ships, totaling 663,118 tons in the U. S. That the Revolutionary War lasted eight years to the day. (Battle of Lexington commenced on April 19, 1775 and on April 19, 1783, Washington ordered cessation of hostilities with Great Britain). That although Sect. 3 of Art. IV of the Constitution forbids the formation of new states within the jurisdiction of a state, Texas is allowed to divide itiself into 5 states. That from March till Sept. the sun shines continously on U. S. Territory. That although the most popular S. and A. form in the Navy, very few men know that S. and A. form 57 is a pay receipt. That the Province of Kiangsu in China is the most densly populated spot in the world, 824 people to the square mile. That there are 6,760 tongues and systems of writing in the world. DIVINE SERVICES HELD ON BOARD Sunday evening at 1830 Divine services were held in the port hangar, which was suitably decorated for the occasion. A goodly number of the crew atend- ed and all who attended, spoke highly of the good services rendered. During the cruise we shall have Divine services every Sunday on board. STOP PRESS, "FLASH" Our popular shampoo dispenser, "Tiger" Standafer was found nearly exhausted, with impatience fast overcoming him after waiting 3hrs. on the landing Friday night for a M. L. A good hearted shore boat operator fin- aly pointed out the ship, a scant 50 yards! AVATION UNIT RETURNING On Tuseday our Aviation unit shall return from North Island, where they have been the past few weeks, getting in some very useful and practicable flying time. The Blue Bonnet welcomes our aviators back aboard.
