Transcript NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY With the forthcoming cruise in the spotlight and a 100 mi. stretch separa­ting this mighty man of war from the land of the G. Go's, our column finds itself more than usually alert with good results. It was interesting to note the pained expression on " Betty Boop" Demoney's pan when " Spud" Dotterer said " Stay aboard now and learn of the excellent comforts of home aboard"! l\. familiar figure about the decks, whom all hands missed the past few weeks, " Doc" Krueger, our ace fish­erman, is now aboard again, sporting a nifty coat of tan and admitting he did right well with the old shot- gun while on leave!!!!!! We would ay that Elder of the sig­nal gang looks quite ducky cruising about the lower decks in those striped scivvies. Who could the energetic, though slightly bald WT2c be, who was over­heard to beIl') oan the fact that it cost him twelve whole cart wheels just be­cause he forgot to look at the boat schedule. .

" Stubby" Brown admits he would proudly endorse a song called " No Sleep" ? ? ? ? We have no reports to make con­cerning G. G. specials to Long Beach so far, but rumor hath it that today a new record will be set. " Pappy~, Hammers says the reason for the mustacio is: he desires to stand out in a croud! Says you " Pap"! . Our usually snappy Gunners Mates, Kmartz must have weighty problems on his mind to absent- mindedly give a south paw salute at inspection. THE BLUE BONNET Surprising to see Kennedy hold­ing hands with a certain girl at the Majestic. Then he holds her purse while she dances ? ? ? ? " Marblehead" Barker, while primp­ing up says, " you got yours, how about lettin' me get mine". Yuh dunt say! ! ! ! Our model (?) sailor boy, Glider has that military bearing, but we are hard put to figure out where he re­ceived hi training in the " school of the squad". It seems we have a blonde heart­breaker on the comm deck who wishes to be called " Blonde Bullet" ? ? ? Who was our dashing left hook art­ist who was showing a fair propri­etres on the pike how scientific the art of self defence caft be. Ask lefty Frick. A certain fire- controlman claims he isn't a golden grainer but he addres­ses swe~ t nothings to " Mrs. J. R. Gug­lietti. It seems that Charlie Sessions has been re- named " Chucky Wucky" by his L. A. girl friend.?? ? ? Nuff said this week! ...... DID YOU KNOW1 That there are over 50 men on this vessel from the state of Texas.
