Transcript NOSEY NEWS by EV'BODY WHAT HO! And who said Long Beach does not seem million of miles away? What with one of the great­est organizations of jolly humans hold­ing forth in the Sound city, a school teachers convention or two in session and twenty odd warships of Uncle Sams mighty armada in Elliot Bay, led by the Houston, enjoying the full benefits of entertainment packed " Fleet ' Veek", ' tis no wonder the lads are all saying they only hope we pau ' e a while longer. * * * * * * * * We should have never known this small bit of news concerning the 1st Lieut' yeoman, Schrumm, if it had not been for his unsatiable desire to tell all about his exploits. This time it seems the youth actually made a " 48" spending no more than a half a cartwheel. Call early. and avoid the rush. Weare sure all Hands will be interested in knowing the technique used. Speaking of the half dollar, we wonder how Winig, the ex- wagon FC man, made out on his special li­berty?? ? * * * * * * * * Just why a certain snappy fireman of the " A" Div should fall in for in­spection with a white " E" sewed on the seat of his trousers is one we are at a loss to explain??? • • • • • • • • In a recent interview, our enquiring reporter picked up some rather start­ling news from that staid and salty " Triumviarte" of the CPO quarter , Mithchell, Greenwood and Jockel. In the course of the interview this trio admitted they were shoreward bound for a cruise to the nearest riding aca­demy. Their theory seemed to be based on the assumption that if " Terry" McGovern could ride ' em so could they... From authentic sources we have recently learned how Osborne as doing a fine job plugging for a THE BLUE BONNET certain brand of gin. Then to our ut­most surprise we note the lad has not missed many liberty calls since. He ays the dance was a gigantic suc­cess. * * * * * * * * Although as yet, the stogies have have not found their , yay to the edi­tors desk, we extend our congrats to Vizard. Jack seems to be quite per­turbed over the fact his many feminine admirers fail to recognize him in the new unifonn. * * * * * * * * Proimos too comes in for the con-grats, but why did the new chiefie decide to eat in the pantry the first meal in the quarters??? ***'****: t- It must be a thrill for the ladies whenever a ' certain Marine strolls the beach in his. swimming togs. Why, he eyen admires those big muscles himself. He answers to the name " Ski" but would rather be called the A jonis of the fighty fifth. * * * * * * * * It seems " Chan u" Ridge of the en~ ineers has partially solved the hill climbing problem. He takes his roller skate' shoreside, u ing them to de­scend them thar hills. Some say he may have been reading about those long walks back to town. .. * * * * * * * * And now " Squeaky" Campbell has competition. Burgess may be a little ine. ' perienced but the lad shows prom­ise of giving Squeaky a run for hon-ors. * * * * • • • * The " Belle" of No. 3, Huston and our gunnery office stooge, Knowlton, are now classed as being wortrhy ex­ponents of the Tennis game. Forty Love ' eems to be their best bet. Won­der if two beers had any bearing?? ? * * * * * * * * As you may recall, this time last y/ Var the boys were just 1' ecovering from the Blaine visit. From what has been going on, - everal of the crew have not recovered yet. At least a dozen were on deck early to check bus schedules in that direction. * * * * * * * * Wonder why " Ducky" Allen of the machine shop started to take a bucket on leave with him. Reports indicate h has a bath tub on the beach and soemeone to scrub hI'.. b'ack t 00 ?..' I .' I • • * * * * * * • Someone should cheer our down- Page Three. hearted shipmate, " TEX" Pickens. The mi guided youth has been moon­ing all week. It was a case of love at first sight, but the lad does not know the gal yet. ' Tis a terrible situation. • * • • • • • * If your memory has not failed, you may remember an issue many moons ago wherein it was stated: " Once a GG always a GG. " Have you by any chance noticed where so many of our recent liberty parties have been pre­dominated by members of the famous club? ? ? • • • • • • • • See where Barker, formerly of No. 2, more recently located in No. 3 Turret, is once mOJ'e buying stocks and bonds in Seattle. This lad shows business sense by w. iting until tbt> market is closed so he may obtain the cheap~ r curb rate. He says it is busir: ess sense. * ¥ • • • .. • * In a l'ecent is ue a name ': las USE': i in connection with the doings of the highstepping Royal (' eading scullery Maid).

Even " Archie" Arsenault has been ovei'come by the spirit of the ocas­sion. We note how well this man has learne perfect con: lOl in recent months. * • * * * • • • " Hen" Nelson reports a very en-joyable journey over the last week­end to the Evergreen Hinterland. The only tliing he finds hard to unde1' stanu is: Why did the state ever build 1' oads so far back in the hills? ? ? • • • • • • • • " Fantail" LewL, the lonely lover, says he has trained in for the time being.

The boy admits he was a " Gabby Cabby" in the local berg before heeding the call of the sea. We are incline I to disbelieve his tale of being a Cabby. The man doesn't even know his home town. Ask the baseball team members.
