Left to my fate, and despite the rough talk concerning my whereabouts ~ d rough handling, I am desperately striving to uphold the good name of all good salt shakers even if I am small and delicate. When I first made my appearance on board ship I had many brothers and sisters although they were much larger and turdier than I. They all coffed at me saying I would not be able to take it but woe i me for now I am the only one left to serve140 hungry sailors in the f'wd. me hall and in the melee u ually cau ed by the demand for my ervices, I have lost my cap and my u efullne s is not even appreciated so I am serious­ly thinking of putting in for a special order or duty with the Alisex. Pare Three SPLIT ESSES The father of thi column having been 10 t in the huffle during our stay at North I land in a transfer to the IndianapolL, the ta k of main­taining this column has fallen into other hands none too fully qualified for it. However the attempt shall be made and here it i . Six weeks at orth Island have put the V Divi ion into fine fettle. Wit­nesses to the . nappy landings mad by our pilot during the past week will atest the veracity of this' stat ­ment. The plan ar in much b tter condition than vel' before, thanks to a week of overhaul, and our mecha take pride in their steeds. Gunn ry is rearing its head around the corner much to the grave conc rn of Mc­Nesby preparin~ the new weapons and towing boards for the coming three weeks of free- gun training for rear- seat rider', Expert machine gun­ner are expect d to develop during that period. The more observing members of the crew may have noticed a new mark on the fu elage of the Loui ville plane . This ' mark' i the new squadron insig­nia to be painted on all plane of VS- ll- S Scouting Squadron. The in­signia con i t of a flying fish in flight poi ed ready to land, on a back- • ground of green corresponding to the squadron color. Symbolical of the sea and its flying inhabitant, it is a fitting emblem of our purpo e, living in the water yet free to invade the lighter world of air above. The Houston planes have not been so adorned be­cause of the prospective changes to take place April 1., at which time we become members of VS- 10- S, Scouting Squadron. VS- 10- Scouting Squadron has cho en for it insignia a duck fully clothed in helmet, earphones, spy­glas , goggles and bomb tucked un­der one arm, ju t after it ha been catapulted howing fla he' of lightn­ing emitted from it tail depicting radio communication in effect. VS- 9- S Scouting quadron di plays a soaring eagull in a ky blue back­ground, ymbolizing the flight of a plane looking for its next morsel, be that an enemy ve el just sighted or the more serious business of spotting and bombing.
