Transcript Page Two. THE BLUE BONNET -: THE BLUE BONNET :- WARDROOM NOTES --::-- c. P. O. CHATTER Aviator:- " There I was forced down on that lonely isle with a lovely blonde." Gob:- " What did you do for food?" Aviator:- " Darned if I can re member." ( Continued From Page One) the Pollywogs had: pepper loaded i_ the blowers. Needless to say the meet-ing broke up hurriedly. It is not believed, however, that the Shellbacks are going to take this lying down. Interviews with several powerful leaders of this clan indicate that the Shellbacks are holding back so as to weld their already potent organization into a still more stinging la~ h before taking action. Nagle, " E" DIv., who still suffers a stiff neck from the Lee episode, probably aptly expressed the Shellback attitude when he said, " There is a day of reckoning". Note:- This paper is non- partisian. • • It is noticed that Arneberg and Dan are trying to start a new hair­cut fad back in the quarters. Can't understand why they should have it cut so short. Both have been across the line. Barnett is still after that pollywog McCallister. No matter how hard we try it is im­possible to keep Pappy Adcock awake during meal time, or any other time as matter of fact. The Quarters' Sea Lawyer, Ter­rible Teddy McGovern, has Redding and Hicks stopped when it comes to arguments. Seems Mac never loses. . He has caused Redding to give up and Hicks to throw regulations awa It is reported that Sawdust Nelso fell in the washroom the other evening during darken ship and someone gave him a bath before he knew what was hapening and was laid up two whole days from shock and fright. It is with regret we note our Flag Watertender, Bill Murray, is On the sick list. However, we sincerely hope to see Bill spry and giving out the old regulation growls in the near future. Who said McCallister liked the sea? Another week and I'm afraid we would have to turn him over to Jack Vizard as a psycho patient. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, LET'S GO EASY ON THE WATER. • I • Lt. Felt has presented the ward­room with a picture of the U. S. S. HOUSTON leaving San Diego Har­bor on the last Presidential Cruise. The noteworthy feature of the picture is that the HOUSTON is flying the President's flag ai the main, and also the flag of the C- in- C at the fore. The picture was taken by the Navy's Photographic Air Service of San Diego. Lt Rice has received so many que­ries as to why he purchased an auto­mobile just prior to departure from Long Beach, that he now has this stock answer. Quote: To me a dollar saved is a dollar earned. By owning a cal', during the cruise my gasoline and oil savings will materially augment my earnings. Unquote. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Ensign William C. Murphy, aviation gunery observer, has received his orders to Pensacola for flight train­ing. Ensign Murphy will be detached at Panama on the 16th for trans­portation to New Orleans on a United Fruit steamship. During the month's leave preceeding the date of reporting at Pensacola, Ensign Murphy will be­come a " Golden Grail~ er". Ensign Murphy has had so many good laughs at our expense that we think it is only fair for the ship to have one at his. Last year during the cruise the ship was darkened. It was after dinner hour in the bunkroom, and Ensign Murphy was discoursing with considerable vehemence on some sub­ject. The phone rang. The party called for Ensign Murphy. Ensign Murphy answered. The person at the other end ( by name to relator unknown) said, " Murphy this is the Executive Officer ( by the relator known to be untrue), What is the use of darkening ship if you are going to talk"? Stun­ned into silence was Ensign Murphy. * * * * * * * * Lt. ( jg) Hanis, 1st. Division Offi­cer, has orders to the U. S. S. CHAU­MONT for duty, upon falling in with that vessel in June. Although he hates to leave the HOUSTON, Lt. Harris reports he is looking forward with keen anticipation to the watches on the CHAUMONT, whose bridge is equipped with a swivel back chair and a brass rail for the O. O.

Robottom, U. S. N. Executive Officer. EDITOR:- Ensign N. E. Kingsley Ass't. Editor:- R. C. Ball, Ch. Pay Clerk Associate Editor:- R. W. O'Brien, BMlc Exchange & Re- Write:- W. H. Osborne, Y3c Printer:- G. W. Baker, Seale ..... Dear God; Help me to be a good sport in this little game of life. I don't ask for any real place in the line- up, play me any where you need nle. I only ask for the stuff to give you one hundred percent what I've got. If all the hard drives seem to come my way, I thank you for the compli­ment. Help me to remember that you won't let anything come my way that you and I together can't handle. And help me to take the breaks as part of the game. And help me to understand that the game is full of knots, knocks and trouble and make me less mindful of them: to get so the harder they come, the better I take them. And, Oh God, help me to play on the square; no matter what other players do, help me to come clean. Help me to study The Book that I know the rules and to study and think a lot about The Greatest Player that ever lived, and other great players of whom the Book tells. If they found out that the best part of the game wa helping the other guys who were out of luck, help me to find it out too. Help me to be a regular fellow with the other players. Finally, Oh God, if fate seems to uppercut vith both hands, and I'm laid on the shelf in sickness 01' oud a~ e, help me to take it as part of the game, too. Help me not to whimper 01' squeal that the game was a frame- up or that I had a raw deal. When in the falling dusk, I get the final bell, I ask no lying compliment­ary stories, I'd only like to know that you feel I've been a good, game guy.
