Transcript Page roar. THE BLUE BONNET U. S. S. Houston- 9- 21- 35- 800. BASEBALL MARINE WISDOM An ex- marine, just made a police officer, was being shown over his new night beat by the sergant. " D'ye see that red light in the distance? Well that's the limit of your beat. Now ge~ along with it". The new policeman set out and was not seen again for a week. When he did show up at headquarters the serge­ant demanded furiously Where he had been. " Ye remember that red light?" ask­ed the cop. " Yes"-" Well, that was a moving van bound for Chicago!" SIGNALMEN VS RADIOMEN The bunting tossers accepted the challenge of the dit- da men on Wed. and diamond No. 3 at Fifth street saw some fast action by various members of the " c" Division. Both starting pitchers found the going a bit rough, too many mid­watches for Walters and it is our guess that McMurphey swung too many leads in Alaska. Wilkie hasn't been away from Long Beach long enough and one inning finished him, and the radiomen howl­ed because the flagmen took a man from their ranks to fill in. The casualty occured when Chay tipped a foul and Horobetz took it for a broken digit. The signalmen waited out a few of Walters w! ld throws and drew enough walks which bunched with the few scattered hits put them ahead of the spark boys who up until that time had topped the score. The game wound up with the signal­men in the lead 14 - 9 and one ball up a palm tree. The mid- watches that night were plenty long, and the groans the next day were as freely flowing as the liniment.

BELIEVE IT IF YOU CAN shooting irons and are taking advan­tage of the opportunity to practice on the local Police range, considered as being one of the finest in the nation. Some of the . regular team members going out daily are: Lt Robinson, Ens. Burdick, Ch Gunner Condit, Mach. Woodroof, Pinion, Seale., Kit­chen Cpl. and Arminger PFc. Several new candidates have been out, while those of you desiring a try­out, see Mr. Condit. An excellent feature of this fine pistol range is that it is available at all times for individual use, being easily accessable, while the fee is only 10 cents per target. This affords a fine opportunity for our pistol en­thusiasts who may find it hard to join the ship's team. Many of you old time Golden Grain­ers may think men are old at 60, boys young at 16. But: that isn't so with " Red" Pinion or that " man of steel", Slusarsky. " Red" says a man at sixty, back thar in ole' Kaintuck, can pack a 52 gal. keg of moon- shine across a mountain, taste the contents and know if said keg has a carpet tack with a leather washer, on the inside. Possibly you have all heard about the time that " man of steel" fired the 8in battery on the old Huron, all by himself, and made an " E". Excuse me, his mess cook helped him out on the second set, but didn't cut in on the " E" money. And this all happened at the tender age of 16. BASKETBALL PISTOL TEAM NOTES Daily workouts for the basketball artists have commenced again at the Army Navy " Y" in San Diego. Most of the workouts will be in the evening, to avoid interfering with ship's work, and to insure cooperation of all hands. Many of the ships in the harbor are starting their practice, and have pro­mised to give the HOUSTON practice games this coming week. Keen com­petition is expected especially from some of the light cruisers. When practice games are scheduled far eno­ugh in advance the word will be given out on the ship, and it is hoped that at least a few of the HOUSTON boost­ers will come around to lend moral support. ....... C. P. O. CHATTER Bj Hawk Eje . NEWS OF FORMER SHIPMATES It is rumored back in the Chiefs' Quarters that maybe the petty of­ficers did score more runs, but several of the chiefs claim the c. p. a. team scored more hits on the keg. Those in doubt consult Berry and Herrick. Herrick had to choose from one of the two, buy more clothes or reduce. He is now on a diet. Who said the Gunnery Sargeant isn't a full fledged " G. G." He can be seen each morning shining buttons, etc., preparing to catch the 1315 boat. " Frenchy" LaTour ranks as a chart­er member of the " G. G." Society. No matter what port, he is right there when it is time to go " shore- side". Johnny Johnson ( GSK- CSK) still hasn't explained why no see for long time? ? ?? Krueger returned from leave claim­ing that his leave was devoted to shooting Pheasants. The Mess Trea­surer dosen't believe the tale ' cause Doc didn't even as much as bring back a feather. That reminds Hawk- Eye. Krueger is trying to steal the Mess Treasur­er's blonde. Naughty Naughty - Doc. We're wondering if Joe Phalon ever bought his Grandpappy out of the Navy. Dutch Arneberg can really scoff corn- on- the- cob. Redding is preparing for the South­ern cruise. We are wondering why Darr eats so much pie? ? See you next week, folks. ly in turrets 2 and 3, is now on the destroyer Overton and is anxious to return to his old home, the " HOU­STON". " Whimpy" Steve, BM1c, formerly of the fantail division, now on the Augusta, writes that China is still the same except the exchange is Mex. 2.59 for $ 1.00. " Snarfy Joe" Woodward, Ye02c, former mail orderly, writes that Sa­moa is fine in the dry season as it rains only twice a day. Likes his new duty and says some of our G. G. club members wouid enjoy duty there.
