A. Smith, 8le 30 March, 1935. * * * PEP TALK There is an old maxim, " Haste makes Waste." Last year the results of such haste and carelessness resulted in the death of 36,000 persons in this country. During the past ten years the death toll due to traffic accidents mounts to 300,000- more han have been killed during all the wars in which the United States engaged. Cars built by manufacturers are not intended to travel at top speed continually. Cars are built with high speed because in doing so cars are built to operate more economically, possess longer life, and strangely enough, operate more safely. They are more economical because engines run at normal speed with less fuel. They last longer because at normal speed the car operates within its capacity. They are safer because with possible u e of high peed, safety devices are in tailed to function efficiently at the e higher speeds and consequently more effective at normal speed. SPEED is like a drug, taken in small quantitie it is beneficial, taken in a largo dose it may be fatal. Pre ent drives against traffic law violators have been instigated with the purpose of indoctrinating the mas­ses of automobile users in safe speeds, and proper observance of highway common sense. Speed limits are made in certain zones because of some haz­ard should this speed be exceeded. Rules of the road are made to facili­taate traffic and safeguard the rights of drivers. Disregard of these creates a peril not only for the violator but innocent others who may be in his proximity. The few minutes gained THE BLUE BQNNET in travel at high speed are of neglig­ible value when the loss of life is imminent. We as men, pledged to abide by the laws of this country, should be the first to conform to speed regulations set along the routes we may travel. Conformance with the laws of Long Beach, ; Los Angeles, and San Diego is a matter of duty as much as your obedience to orders on ship board. Consequences resulting from neglect in either case are of grave concern to those involved. At no time is . will­ful waste tolerated in any community, be it in the metropolis of New York or the most desolate wilds of Mrica. Conform with speed laws and raffic regulations and you save life, property and sorrow. --; 0;-- Last week we failed to mention Hubenack, S2c, of the Third Division as one of our contributors. --: 1: 0: 1:-- ENS. BLY RETURNS On Monday, Ensign Bly returned to the ship and resumed his duties as " F" Division J. O. For the past few weeks Ensign Ely has been attached to the Argonne as a member of the Camera Party. This was Mr. Bly's second tour of duty with the Camera Party. --: 1: 0;- ­QUESTIONAIRE ( 1) Why pennant used determined? ( 2) What types of vessels are sometimes called Beef boat, Banana Boat, and Pig boat? ( 3) What ship, in the US Navy, carried the most guns? ( 4) How many Bureaus and Offi­ces are there in the Navy Dept., and haw many can you name? ( 5) Why is the " Lucky Bag" cal­led lucky bag when we all know it is an unlucky place? ( 6) Where is the Navy's norther­most closed port? --; 0;-- The strangest thing in the world to­day is the American Cocktail. They put in whiskey to make it strong and water to make it weak; gin to make it hot and ice to make it cold; lemon to make it sour and sugar to make it sweet. They say, " Here's to you" and then drink it themselves. - Salvo KNOWING THE NAVY How many times have you been asked why different types of ships are given different names, and not knowing, felt a little foolish? The following table will give you all the dope and is quite interesting. Battleships for States; Cruisers for Cities; Battle Cruisers and Aircraft Carriers for famous ships of the Navy; Destroyers for famous Naval men; Submarines for Fish; Gunboats for Territories; Tenders for Stars; Oil Tankers and Tugs are given In­dian names; Mine Sweepers for birds; Colliers are given Mythological names while submarine tenders are named for pioneer submarine men. There are variations in certain types but this table is general. Th~ U. S. Frigate Constellation is the oldest man- o- war in commission, having been launched on 7 September, 1797; and is now stationed at the Naval Training Statioll, Newport, R. I. --*'>: 1:- ­THE PUDDLE JUMPER MaeDougal the Czar " had the guard And he paeed the deck long and hard, He h3d just relieved and weather was clear, Clear indeed for this time of the year. Up to the bow and back again . Starting to cover miles of ground. The lower transit was approaching nigh And a dirty sm" dge crept over the sky. Quick as a flash the fog set down And the bell tolled out its dismal sound. The P- J had the midnight" trip, And the Czar just flipped the gun on his hip. He bit hi. lip and stood aghast, And cried alound, " Will the P- J last I" Her center of gravity was known to precess And that is what placed him in grave distress, For only ] ast week, up ' Frisco way, The stern had started a new kind of sway. Wallowing and floundering she made the pier And all hands disembarked with a thankful cheer. Down by the bow she started back, Leaving a sine~ curve for her track, The tide wiggled her stern, Causing the coxswain plenty eoncern. It warped her shaft and buckeled her bow Causing more wrinkles in the coxswains b; ow. The coxswain stroked his stubbled chin And looked ahead to see where he'd been. Ue cast an eye to starboard, to port, And said to his crew, " As a last resort, Since we can't 1' 0 ahead, we'll back her down, And see if we can cover some ground." No sooner said than with a grinding thump Into reverse went the puddle jump, With a heave on the oars, and dangers past, The P- J made the gangway at last. H. Y.
