Transcript NOSEY NEWS ' BOUT EV'BODY That recently completed three days of tactical maneuvers gave many of our new shipmates a slight taste of what the real thing is - these same maneuvers also brought out the fact that many of our hash- mark sailors seem to easily forget that this is the Navy after all, and we do have a few duties to perform. * * * • • • • • The maneuvers did not dampen the spirit of our world series fans though. If there was one radio with­out the world series tuned in we would like to know what was wrong with it. Maybe Cheek, the barbering radio technician will come to the res­cue. * • • • • • • * Another interesting side- light to come to our attention during the tac­tical exercises was the fact, Taylor of the 2nd seriously considers recom­mending having transportation eyes put on powder bags too. Although we realize these new lads shun pub­licity, we must make a small com­ment of Nickle and Coffey becoming our latest " Beau- Brummels". Their first few excursions in the new rigs seem to bring disaster; Coffey burn­ing up his coat by the simple means of depositing a cigarete butt in the pocket and ickle returning aboard with two types of shoes adorning his tootsies. Coffee admits his investment amounted to at least a third of a cen­tury note, much to his regret · •••••• *. We understand that Read of the boat- deck is seriously thinking of fOllowing in Charlie Sessions steps. The club seems to be as popular as ever. • • • • • • • • Now that Costello has inherited Pobran's Benzine Relic we have rea­son to believe Knowlden will encoun­ter the usual difficulties of all GG's. THE BLUE BONNET And now " Willie" Fish comes forth with his secret desires. The movie­man dreams of becoming some kind of racketeer, and we thought the lad had a supressed desire to become a " Male- Model"? ? ? • • • • • • • • We always suspected John Svend­berg was a former plow- jockey, but to hear the silent fire- control demon paged on the radio has really con­vinced us he is somewhat of a cow­hand. It would be a pleasure to hear John warble his favorite cowpoke song. • * * • • * • • If a leave period could do as much good to everyone, as it did the band, we favor more leave with added trav­eling time. Did you happen to hear the wind- jammers on the fantail last Thursday?• • • • • • • • It IS rumored the reason we have two effecient equestrains in Sgt'sWit­hey and Battles is because the Sea soldiers have their eye on certain bil­lets ashore. • • • • • • • • It is presumed that everyone knows what a toothpick is for. Weare wrong. " Si" Pierce enjoys them as a sort of relish on Club Sandwiches. The spark chaser admits no ill efects. * • • • • • • * It seems to be a habit of some of our shipmates to be careles about their Lonely Hearts correspondence. A certain boat- deck sailor, hash­marks to boot, is interested in Joan Remington's column in W est ern Stories, and he can tell some very in­teresting tales about Valparaiso, Chile. ' Tis possible many of our Houston­ites could do the same. • • • • • • • • Definite proof that our one and only " Baldy" of the Exec's office is a newsworthy figure ( in certain ways) is proven when he makes a certain Service Mag. Seems we missed out on the picnic dope though. • • • • • • * • Wonder why our newsy Andy Mel­lon ordered chicken for the two mis­ses and then took a powder?? Andy! • * • • • • • • o wonder Widetick was surprised at himself when he first lamped him­self in that pin stripe layout. The nonchalant air gave indication the Store- Keeper is slightly interested in local waters. Page Three. FO R AVY GAMES --::-- avy grid squads swing into action over the week- end with four import­ant games in the battleships grid schedule slated. Saturday the championship U. S. S. Pennsylvania eleven tackled Lieuten­ant Renner's U. S. S. Lexington Min­utemen in their second test of the sea­son on Field 1, at Navy Field, San Pedro. The U. S. S. New York Knicker­bockers are slated to meet U. S. S. Saratoga's Roosters, providing the aircraft carrier arrives from Bremer­ton in time for the game. Fresh from a 6 to 0 victory over the highly touted U. S · S. Ranger eleven, the Roosters may furnish Coach Dick Burns' cquad with a surprise. On Sunday, two undefeated teams meet, when Sam Yancy's heavy U. S. S. Idaho machine runs afoul the U. S. S. New Mexico Ponies. Both teams have defeated the crack U. S. S. Ari­zona eleven, the Idaho snaring a 14 to 6 victory over the Wildcats, while Ensign Tom King's lads had an easier time in running over the " rambling wreck from Arizonee," taking a 20 to 6 verdict last Sunday. On the basis of their games with the Wildcats, the Idaho and ew Mex­ico should be an even money bet. How­ever, the consensus of opinion along " battleship row" is that the Hell Cats are in for their first trimming Sun­day. ••• ~. HlPMATES --::-- The lady reporter was preparing an article on " Life in the Navy" and came aboard the battleship for some " local color". " I understand there is occasionally some friction between the younger sailor and the marines. Now, if you happened to see a marine fall overboard and he was attacked by a man- eating shark, what would you do ?" " Lady," said the seaman, as he flicked the butt of a cigarette over the life line: " I'd leave the man­eating shark to its fate." • • A lady we know walked out on her husband because he couldn't stand the way she talked. ow, she's gone home to mutter. .. ' l. Have ' IOU written home this week?
