Transcript NOSEY NEWS ~' ' BOUT ~ ; J," EV'BODY Now that the big shoot is over the schedule calls for a few weeks siege at the GG's famous buoy, namely " George". There is no doubt the pro­spect of two weeks in port just did not agree with the roving " H" when we approached the buoy last Wednes­day. Still, we must admit an at anchor period is just the thing since Novem­ber 19 is not too far off and that Semi­annual inspection is just across the horizon. * * * * * * * * The morning after remnants of the various sea picnics give evidence of quite a gay round of celebrations by some of the home guards. Even the print shop gang have had several gay social events. " Elsie" Palmer has been priming the boys with Florida mar­malades and jams, while Beckwith and Baker have been doing a fine job furnishing the topics, mostly of the conquest nature. * • • • • • • • If you could have heard the " Cow­boy" wig wagger, Drake, you would have known something was in the air, It seems the lad was limbering up that shore side long glass. • * • • • • • • That recent excursion to the Pensa­cola by several members of the crew brought to light some interesting dark lights in the past of the new salt water cop, McCol · mick. You will have to catch Mac in an off moment to get the story. It is worth the effort tho. * * * * * * * * Incidently, we do believe those men who did make the Pensacola trip are convinced the good ship Houston is just about the best afloat. • • • • • • • • Have you ever noticed Daly of the " R"; that corn- cob actually has him staggering at times. We understand he has quite a time with his shipmates when on a job in a confined space. THE BLUE BONNET Since the recent 40 fish investment in the new rags, Baldy Davis has been taking advantage of the passport which allows him the freedom of Pine Ave. It must be a thrill to be able to elude the clutches of the Hamburger Canyon. A good story there for the right person. * • • • • * • • The new handle being sported a­bout by our amiable SK3c, Cochrane, is something to take notice of. DIM­PLES COCHRANE - How did you do it shipmate. Reports indicate you had quite a hectic 30 day turnover in ' Frisco and vicinity. * * • * * * • • Another son of the hinter- lands, Arthur, former Ioway plough jockey, has taken after Lee of the signal gang and is now shipping two spots back to the natives. * * • • • • • • Puckett, famed among our sea go­ing Aviation Mechs, admits his 45 years would not show if it weren't for the effects of twenty years astern the slipstream. Perk up Puckett, Buck Weaver is developing a new hair re­storer. It is supposed to originate in the upper reaches of the Yangtze. It should do something for you. • • • • • • • • It seems certain our pigskin dope­sters are going to turn to pingpong if there are many more upsets such as last week's. • * * * * * * * A new angle in fancy dance steps was brought out recently by Angel Smith of the fan- tail. He has devel­oped a most graceful step in sliding up a ladder without barking the shins. * • • • • • • • One of the observing lads on the staff brings to light the fact that " Iron Man" Rimmer has finally sub­mitted to the use of liniment. Reports on the case show this particular lini­ment is supposed to be used for all the ills known to medical science. Do you suppose it could help the Dinuba Wonder on his some back trail. The Sailmaker says he is willing to try anything once. * * * * * * * * The latest Houstonite to fall heir to the title of " Casonova" is our own Stevie ( as she calls him) Sivak. The manuevering abilities he obtains thru his power over the dispensers of Joy Juice is some~ hing we can all marvel at. Page Thl'ee. Someone should do Ellwood, the sun dodgin' pen pusher in the log room a favor and give him a little inside dope on how not to keep a lonely ladie in waiting. ethertheless, the power he holds must be terrific. • * • • • • • • That certain clique of young dam­sels in the Majestic are back to bat­tery once more now that Harry ( The Gigilo) Hart is once more in circu­lation. • * • • • • • • That rumor which indicates the Indianapolis may take over the flag while we are in ' Frisco seems to be bad news to many of our Houston­ites. It will be rather hard to vacate this choice berth. A peep through the long glass reveals the fact that our famous " Half- Way" berth is still vacant. Can't you just feel the roll? * * • * •••• Ashcraft of the fan- tale has ideas that probably shall never materialize. His latest is to find the gal friend a job. Then he says they shall become man and wife. And Sammy is such a he- man. Maybe he is the only one who thinks so. ....
