Transcript THE BLUE BONNET Page Three Everybody on the set, please. . . . we'll shoot this sequence now. Where the devil is that script boy ? Call the electrician . . .Call somebody, anybody, before I loose control . . . Excited? Excited! Who said I was EXCITED!!**!! Alright now, everybody ready! Lights! Camera! Sound! ACTION!! ******** The first scene is taken in a downpour of rain. Picture a navy motor launch creeping thru a welter of water, returning it's early morning load of Golden Grainers and sundry stay- out-all-nighters to the ship. As it bumps to a landing alongside the gangway, men streaming with moisture jostle for first place up the ladder. Some have rain clothes, some not, all are wringing wet. As the crowded boat thins out a strange thing is seen . . . What can that be? Is there a lady in the boat at this unusual hour? The mysterious person jumps for the first step and it isn't a woman; it's a man in a ladies pale blue rain cape! Despite the heavy rain several stop on deck to laugh loud and long; for the MAN wearing the lovely creation is Yelverton, Captain's Yeoman! He has been incommunicado ever since. ******** Three cheers! From all hands comes three lusty, hearty cheers as our good friend and Shipmate, Pay Clerk D. E. Pay, leaves the HOUSTON for the last time. Nay, nay! my heckling critics . . . Those hurrahs are not because we're glad to see him go . . . just our way of paying tribute and giving a send-off to a fine officer and real gentleman. For twenty-two months Mister Fay, in his quiet, unobtrusive manner skippered the Supply Office in such a way as to gain the friendship and admiration of all who contacted him. Ever smiling and glad to be helpful however rough the going; is a candid camera shot of this officer who, we predict, will go far in his chosen profession. On February 5th, his orders came for transfer to the Supply Corps, Asiatic Fleet. He and Mrs. Fay are delighted with the prospect of a pleasant sea voyage via the S. S. President Adams, sailing from Los Angeles enroute Manila, on the 23rd of this month. Again we wish them good fortune, and add: Don't take any brass "clakkers." ******** The following excerpts are from a letter delivered to the editor for indirect transmission to: Mr. "Bunny Duck" Rock, Fireman, "A" Division. Dearest "Popsie": "Sugar" still loves her bald-headed "Daddy". Does oo' still love your own little "Tootsie Roll?" This's absolutely the last straw! That this feature should sink so low as to become a "Lovelorn" column . . . Well—it just isn't! Hereafter, the gentleman who lacks hirsute adornment and resorts to banana shampoos as a last resort, (Bulla helped)—is strongly advised to take care of his own love affairs. No third party parts for us! ******** Week's Best Story: A Two Act Playlet—Act One takes place in a cafe where Hubbard, Chief Turret Captain, who guides the destiny of Turret One, has embibed too well and not wisely. Second Act Curtain! Scene: Cosy living room in apartment—Hubbard reclines on couch, weary from the evening's excitement. A charming young lady sits and chats as our hero's head nods—and then—his eyes close; he's asleep! Quickly she climbs to the seat of a chair . . . What on earth is she doing? With rapt expression and elaborate gestures she begins to read the old familiar lines: "Romeo, my Romeo! Wherefore art thou . . ." "Romeo" really wasn't asleep though . . . Imagine the Chief's amazement and mental confusion when he found he was too shaken to get up and put a stop to the "playacting". It went on and on . . . ******** A late report gives this startling information: Borghettii big-money- man of the "F", finally came out on the winning end of a bet. John Goss, the "M" Division's big Little Boy was the contributor of a "fin". How did the Fire Controlman know Louis wouldn't serve a K. O. to Pastor? Maybe experience is a good teacher .. ******** Picture: Dale Hubbard, eccentric trombonist in the COMSCOFOR Band, on his hands and knees in front of his music stand, instrument and case lying forgotten beside him. By all that's peculiar! What is he up to? Answer: Reading an old newspaper that happened to be spread on deck under his feet where he was practicing. ******** "S.mitty" and his crew of "3rd" Division buccaneers were out bright and early last Sunday morning finishing up leftover paintwork. Guess it's the "Simon Legree" in him . . . ******** Yelverton again! Get off the set Greedy! Trying to hog the whole show? Oh! What's the use . . . Anyhow, at long last he's to don the anxiously anticipated "buttons" on the thirteenth. They'll look good on that ladies raincoat! The CPO Quarters is humming with lavish plans for the Yeoman's initiation into the sacred Order of Hack Drivers. ******** A bit on the serious side: Thanks to our Captain for the much needed writing room. When finished the eight chair space with it's substantial furniture is not only going to look nice, it will be appreciated and put to excellent use. There'll be no reasonable excuse then for neglecting that letter to the home folks. . . Don't forget! Send the "Bonnet" home. . . Extra copies always available in the Recreation Compartment. Box on forward bulkhead. . . Innumerable suggestions have been received concerning the possibility of giving a Ship's Dance soon after returning from San Diego. A good old Houston shindig is about due; how about it gang? Remember the swell times of other years? ******** From The Grab Bag: Durant, the "A's" ex-speed king takes the award for nonchalance. Stepping from an automobile that had just sliced a lamp post off at it's base, he sighted a pert little thing in chic street costume. Without a backward glance at the demolished car he remarked: "Gosh! Ain't she pretty?" Lottman of the Ice House is another lad smitten with L. A. scenery. His habitual smile indicates love, or is it just the scenery. CUT! Everybody off the set. . . until next week. So Long!
