Transcript NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY The recently completed first le~ of our present cruise, has left its mark on the HOUSTO in more ways than one. With all hands displaying pleniy of pep and vigor, it does seem a happy realization that the variou. . ndicaiions of weariness evident has t been caused by roaming the Pike, reathing inumerable odors always found close to the beach and the many other evils which befall our snappy Houstonites at time'. With all hands displaying a healthy coat of tan, clear eye and cheerful spirit, true assets of all good American- men- of­warsmen, our short visit to this in­teresting port hould be fully enjoyed. The action packed days of the past week have brought great results, in­teresting conversations about the decks bearing out this fact. * * * * * * * * eptunnus Rex has come in for a great share of the peculative yarns in between conditions, etc. a With th• e * en* ti* re• * sh* ip'* s company ' Willy assembled and really doing their part, the Engineering " E" has found a more wholehearted support than ever before. We still have a chance, shipmates, why not work haml in hand with our snappy engineer and add that hash mark. * • * * * * * * The impe! lding vii" it to Valparaiso is the most popular topic of the week. It seems very few Houstonites have vi ited this port. If each man carrys out his schedule while there it should b some visit. * * * * * * * * Yes sir! The " Bald Bullet" of ihe Exec's Office, ( Davis) is expecting­one of those urgent messages around hristmas, unless, to hi urprise, hi. calculations prove to be correct. By the way- he is trying to get bacon and eggs every morning. THE BLUE BONNET Church, one of our most popular ship's cocks, breaks into the news with the wry comment-- " Shucking eggs on the high seas in the early morn is the only way to keep that figure". * * • * * * * * " Take up thy bunk and run" is the favorite motto of many of our ship­mates since tho e slightly wettish evenings recently. * * • * * * * * And then Clymer comes forth with a tatement which seems to have hit the nail on the head. " It took good old ' 17' to supply me with an oppor­tunity to test my new whistle". * * * * * * * * Brickler of the Focstle' insists we should all follow his advice and read " Ranch Romances". These watches pass so quickly. . . * * * * * * * * ' Tis a shame the way our new strik-er in the Pay- Office is being so vexed with freckles. * * * * * * * * Did you ever hear of Rosebud, the muscle bound washee- washee man of the laundry, ( Leslie to some). ? ? At an earlier date (?) he was known as the terror of the 118 lb. class in the muscle bending racket. * * * * * * * • l1any inve tigations fail to bring to light all the facts concerning the tale about the barbers and their cronies becoming udists? * * * * * * * * Can yuh ' magine? Kennedy is growing a fuzzy wuzzy mu tach hoping secretly the Royal Barber will overlook precious locks atop cranium. * * * * * * * * A recent article appeared in this sheet stating the average man wast­ed 2 goal aqua per diem. Right says us. O! ay Wirebrush; you can't accu ' e me of such an indiscretion. * * • * * * • * The dope is out that there WIll be a s ores working party to the RTIC on the 13th of this month. It' going to be hot for a lot of us but there will be a lucky few working in tho e nice cool ice boxes on the ARTIC. Of course the rest of us don't mind jm; t so someone gets a break. Oh yeah? ? ? ? * * * * * * * * That niosy but short lived commo-tion on the Well Deck several even­ings past had all the earmarks of a g- rand and glorious visit from King 1 eptune soon. The writer's opinion-? Page Three. EXHAUST. PIPE ~. o~ --::-- Now that the war is over, in look­ing own the perform nce of our new planes all hands are of the opin­ion that ihey are as good if not better than our old or ail · s. 0 trouble wa encountered in either catapulting or cast recovery during the Fleet problem. Now that we are nearing Panama, we have a feeling of regret in knowing that the time for Lt. ( jg) Coates' transfer is due. Ii has been a real plea ' ure to have done duty with an Officer and Pilot as efficient and courteous as Lt. oates. We all ex­tend our best wishe' to him in hi new duties and may we be fortunate sometime in the future to be ship­mates once again. Gregg, AMM3c is to be transferred to the Air Station at Coco Solo on our arrival. We all know that Walter J ames will make good there. Best wishe Gregg. Perhaps when we all meet again you will be wearing your NAP wings. Rosie is heard singing lately. His favorite song seems to be " Who's a­fraid of the Shellback ". Careful Rosie a diet wouldent do you a bit of good. Ronnie Ardell, will have a lot to tell the folks back in Iowa, after he returns from this cruise. Hollingsworth indeed i a man of iron. Witness his ubsistance on orange peelings and syrup! Pat Rearette seems to have po t­poned quite a few meals during flight operation. Lt. ( jg) Weller had just about rna tered that climb to the flight deck when the war ended. Charley oble is wondering what sori of beer they have in Valparaiso, and what brand of whisky for a chaser. Nothing like Seagrams, Char­ley ••• Lieutenant: ( Roaring with rage) ­" Who told you to put those flowers on the table?" Mess Attendant: " The Commander, sir." Lieutenant: " Pretty aren't they?"
