Y3e 10 OCTOBER, 1936 * * * THE GRACEFUL WAY --::-- It has been said that courteousness may be l'eg- al'ded as one of the most valuable and important graces found in the realm of human conduct; that without it the individual is constantly laboring under a serious handicap, however much he may desire to get ahead and establish himself on a sure foundation. He may be able to acquire a veri­table storehouse of knowledge, learn to discharge the ' duties devolving upon him in a more or less satis­factory manner, but if he lacks the manly grace of being courteous, he certainly will find himself at a dis­advantage in more ways than mere words can express. Perhaps we would not be very far afield to state that every young man desires to achieve success in some line of endeavor that would seem to be a normal desire to say the least. But it must be equally obvious that in working toward a realization of this natural desire one must have the assistance of others. No man really lives unto himself, even though some would seem to in­dicate the contrary to be true. And one of the best ways to acquire the assistance of others, even in the hard headed business world, is to practice universal courtesy. " The charm of deference to super­iors, of polite recognition of equals, is one of the surest passports to good society." Indeed, more than that is true: It will bring you official recognition, command the respect and deference of others and tend to pave the way for sure advancement to greater things in life. Therefore, you cannot take too much pains to cultivate and de­velop in yourself this important grace of character. - EX THE BLUE BONNET OSCAR'S OPUS NO.

It was either teams game up to the last moment. At one time we had the bases loaded and none out. Unfortunately the batters couldn't produce a bit when most needed. Rimmer pitched an excellent game allowing only one earned run. Errors accounted for the rest. We have our two toughest games behind us and should make a much betel' showing from now on. Weare by no means out of the running. You who missed the last game ( and less than a handful were present) deprived yourself of some real excitement. A little support from the stands is just the tonic our ball club needs. We play the CHICAGO at 1230 today at avy Field Long Beach. The team is doing its part; get out and give them a hand. ••• Father- My son surely is broad­minded · Ditto- That's all my son thinks about too. " Sir, may I have your daughter for my wife?" " Bring your wife around and I'll see." • •• The folks at home will enjoy read­ing the Blue BO: lnet. Mail it! -::- EXHAUST- PIPE-::- ~- T:)-:" OOO .- - ~ After a rather busy three weeks aboard the HOUSTON, holding our own gunnery exercises, towing for the ship's machine gun battery and flying in maneuvers, the Aviation Unit wel­comes a few days respite to catch up on quite a bit of upkeep work on all of our planes. Not much time has been available during all of these flight operations to keep up our rou­tine work necessary to keep our planes in a good flying status. The plane crews are to be complimented for the work they have accomplished under these same conditions. Not once has a plane been put out of flying con­dition in the past three weeks. That, in itself speaks well for our plane crews. Our pet, the Port Hangar, is begin­ing to look shipshape after a bit of touching up here and there. " Gun­ner" Swenson has the situation under control. Martin, our dashing food dispenser, seems to have the loudest say insofar as the spud pile is concerned. Ronnie continues to improve his appearance as long as this weekly sea duty goes on. lt seems as though Dave Steele is gifted with an artistic sense of humor. Witness his portrayal of " Charlie" Noble's gallant efforts at love making. Wonder what has happened to Wright lately? We haven't heard about Texas for some time now. George Thornton is still commuting to Los Angeles. Hollingsworth hasn't invested in any civic property in Long Beach as yet. More than likely he hasn't made up his mind as to the disposal of the last bit of property he paid for. • • " Were you out with mother last night, Dad?" " Sh- h! Not so loud, son. Do you want me to get in trouble with the maid ?" Many a man has been nailed by a pretty manicurist.
