Transcript " Honest Boats, all the hoes i ever seen is bent like this, so I fixed ' em all for yuh!" NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY As we approach the final month in Dea~ old Mare Island, all hand~ find themselves well supplied with acti­' lity, nevertheless our GG boys are finding time to talk over summer cruise dope that has been flying thick and fast of late. 0 matter how rou figure it, we arc pretty !' lJre to be right with the rest of the Fleet \'.- hen he heads South.' With another shindig in the offing many of our prominent iJeart weaken­ers are to be observed doing their stuff, with most of them reporting- :\ fair dancing partner already dated up for that evening. ho could those three generous HO _ STON sailors be, donating eighty odd skins to the local village. TBE BLUE BOJUfaT This recent siege of good weather has softened our attitude toward this region, but we still don't like it. Tis nothing like Long Beach and environs. Burwell says he would have made marksman on the range, on his first string, only someone switched his brand of smokes and the resulting case of nerves was a decided handi­cap. Since " Hawkshaw" Gardiner of the " F" has taken up slewthing in a b; g way he has been swamped with ca ' es. On the case of the missing dun­garees, ( they were thrown in the trash can) he reports 16 excellent clues? ? ? Recently the Goon was found in a local beer emporium having the most divine curl put into his hair. You hould see it. We wonder if the gal was trying to remove the Yangtze malcel. The 0700 liberty just about ereased the Beer parlor curl, but tra­ces of it are still visible. " Muscles" Le - lie is improving nicely after his recent mishap on roller skates. He in­tends to gurgle gallons of his muscle building chocolate ( secret formula) ju:-; t as soon as he is up and around. It seems Campbell of the " N" felt that the Campbell clan was failing to­hold the spotlight So he picke. d t~ e Rodman Club to show his stuff. He ~ s learning fast even though he was In the Army once. It seems the packard dater from the focstle' division did not fare so well in last shore maneuvers. Weare sure the gals did enjoy the beer though. Wonder why Burgess was asking if he really did look ten years older. ? It is rumored about Baker of the Pent House, tried to shoot a snake while on the pistol range. Whether it was a snake or not we are sure Baker was somewhat upset. Only because it is the accepted cus­tom, we must say " Sayonara until next week. ••• SEAMAN SUBMITS PRIZE ANBWERS What we consider to be the prize answers of the current quarter were recently submitted by one of our sea­men in taking a Navy Training course assignment. They are as follows: The patent il\ Strument which is used for measuring the distance a ship travels is called a " COMPASS". When electricity is diverted from its normal path by having both wires accidently touch metal, the lead is said to be " EXPLOSIVE" The rearward movement of a gun which occurs on firing is known 8S the " TRIGGER" The objects, similiar in appearance to blank cartridges, which are used to ignite the firing charge of a gun are called " ONE POUNDERS". ••• GG N. 1 " I had great fun at the club last night. They had a beer _ drinking contest. GG No. 2 " You don't say, who won second prize? •• • SICK BAY NOTEB DANGEROUS DAN McCROBE A bunch of germs were hitting it up In the bronchial saloon; Two bugs on the edge of the larnyx Were jazzing a rag- time tune. Back in the teeth, in a solo game, Sat dangerous Ack- Kerchoo;. .
