Transcript Page Four. " THE COME- BACK COLUMN" by the " Goon" During the past week the never to be forgotton Shellbacks have been trying to nominate a No. 1 Public Enemy by the results of their first attempt we would say that it proved a little unsuccessful. To date we un­derstand that Boatsie Obie is the No. 1 Public Enemy. Also one of our own Pollywogs seems to be a grand stooge for the Shellbacks, none other than " Yap- Yap" Campbell, that mad da, sh of lightning from No. 1 Mess Hall. Queenie of the Penthouse, Wester­field to you who do not know his sea monicker, seems quite at home in his little den during the maneuvers. We hear that Westy once was a cow puncher and the song hit " Wha Hoo" makes him homesick. We all wonder if that record has two sides to it or not, judging from the amount of times it hits the either waves on the well deck, a missing survey is well in hand by now. Has anyone noticed what a crib­bage player we have in one " Shuck" Vizard, the head man of the sick bay. It seems he is not satisfied with a three to zero setback, but will gladly take the four to zero setback. • I." ( Continued From Page One) other print is sent to the Special Ser­vice Squadron where after exhibition, it works up the east coast shore stations, and then is returned to New York. Whereas, on the beach it costs on the average of $. 35 to see a show, in the Navy it costs but $. 35 per month per man. This cost is met on On various ships in various ways. On this ship the shows are paid for by profits from the canteen, profits from Ship's Service, and by an allotment from naval appropiations called " Re­creation Enlisted Men". The sound motion picture projectors are also expensive machines. The Navy also goes to considerable expense to train operators at the various sound motion picture schools. In fact, hardly any expense has been spared to make movies an enjoyable event. It must be remembered though, by those who have a tendency to gripe about shows, that there are not thirty good shows a month produced by the studios and therefore we must take the bad movies with the good. THE BLUE BONNET OVERHEARD IN NO. 1 MESS HALL Kimball evidently has a hard head. See Branan, the painter, for details. Hollingsworth has taken a sudden liking for the mezzanine and orange peelings for breakfast. Osborne is well snowed under with his new job as Ship's Service book­keeper. Now that we are nearing the line all of the " ear- bangi) 1g" Pollywogs are trying their best to work up a drag with the shellbacks. The Ship's Service Store will have a complete line of silks, perfume, powder, etc. after arrival at Panama. Regardless of what a few people seem to think, the Store always has sold Panamanian merchandise far cheaper than it is possible for any individual to obtain it On the beach. If any man has some item in mind that he thinks is a little out of the ordinary, and the Store might not have, see Head about it. Head, of the Ship's Service store reports that he is prepared to accomo­date all potential baseball players. Baseballs can be had for ~,. 25, and gloves for aroun. d...$.. 3.. 00. ONE OF THE ENGINEERS SAYS: He who thinks that cooperation is entirely one sided has evidently not heard the old proverb, " What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander". We of the Engineer's force, . in our endeavor to keep the white " E", have asked the deck force for their co­operation. Their response has been very gratifing, and we are daily ap­preciative of their efforts. It is a well known fact that the Bos'n Mate's largest job is keeping his paintwork clean, and his decks white. This cannot be done as long as some of the black gang persist in lounging on the decks and paint­work in " Steaming Clothes". Come on Engineers, let's do our part. Let's show our appreciation by an honest effort to lighten the burden of the " Deck Hands". • I .. The folks at home will enjoy read­ing the BLUE BONNET. Mail it! U. S. S. Houston- 5- 9- 36- 900. WRESTLING TEAM NOTES This past week saw us off to a flying start with a lot of fine new material on the wrestling team. Of course you have not seen us on the well deck the past few days, but as soon as Condition II stops we will again be on the go. All weights are well represented this year and with the coaching of Wellbourne and Juul we should have a fine team. If our present schedule stays intact we should be able to take on a few of our sister ships and stint on our way to a fleet belt or so. Our team as it stands now is as follows:- Carlson, S2c. Freeman, GM3c. Stocton, Pvt. Penny, S2c. Duval, S2c. Scott, S2c. Chick, S2c. Hardin, S2c. Folta, SIc. Beckwith, S2c. Holt, SIc,- Trainer Wellbourne, BM2c.- Coach Juul, Cox.- Coach Lt. ( jg) Young- Coach- in- Charge. • I'" FANTAIL BREEZES --::-- The war had better finish this week because Tom Harrison, the well known " Bean Jockey" of No. 2 Mess Hall says if they don't stop he's not going to do more than twenty years. If you don't believe the Battle Force can whip the Scouting For~ just ask Henry, W. O., formerly .. the Big Maryland. It seems that they don't make the escape hatch leading to the M Divi­sion Compartment big enough. Tues. nite it was necessary to open the whole hatch so that " Moe" could get out to go on watch. Speaking of the amatuer talent that the 3rd Division has, well up in front are Johnnie Katzman, better known as the Croonin' Coxs'n, and Singin' Sam Ashcraft. Judg~ ng from the notes on the crews bulletin board, the Shellbacks think they are back in their school days. ...... Turn Out Unnecessary Lights!
