Transcript NOSEY NEWS ' BOUT EV'BODY " Home again" is the Rambling Houston and her cavorting Houston­ites. Looking over reports available we find the prospects of an early return to the Home Port did not effect that Grand Finale week- end in ' Frisco, there is even a faint suspicion some of the lads secretly hoped the Bay City would find us riding at anchor in her front yard for some time to come. * • * • * • • • Getting back to the GG paradise ­the first night failed to prove our theory that Hamburger Canyon had planned a Gala welcome; instead a number of our shipmates decided to put on a gala homecoming celebration. • • • • • • • • The Howler of the Fan- Tail, Sharp, led off by surrounding a cargo of giggle juice, enough to last him through his mid- night reville attempt. • • • • • • • • John Lee, muscle man extraordi­nary of the " E" made the first night rounds in typical BatFor style, kid gloves and all. He was last seen head­ing for the famed C- 30, a popular reddezvous of many of our thrill seek­ing shipmates. • • • • • • • • Moulten, a Stb'd. hangar employee found things to his liking the first night too, matter of fact, the lad parked in the same spot so long the manager assessed a parking fee. * * * * * * * * Rush calls seemed to be the order of the day, no sooner than the first line was at the buoy, last Wednesday. Hanna of the " ., and Chmielewski of the 2nd received their rush calls from San Pedro. A surprising bit of news to learn these two lads have drifted as far away as Pedro? • * • * • • • • In a way of showing his apprecia­tion, Brown of the " F" has recently taken unto himself a bright red pair THE BLUE BONNET. of socks. To the experienced eye these socks appear to be of the feminine cut. * * • • • • • • Burwell of the Comm. Deck breezed in from his long leave telling tall tales of the midwest, but private info leads us to believe he had to make up those tales. • • • • • • • • A certain 3rd. class EM is sending high praises to the heavens in honor of the Sody Font these days. Seems the lad burned out a bearing one re­cent evening and tomato juice was the only antedote. t: * * * * * • A new angle on " Fog over ' Frisco" is about to be published since that re­cent scare the GG's had. • • • • • • • • The No. 1 Stooge in the 1st Lieut's. office, Berg, admits his efforts to re­form Schrum and Guard are not very successful. Guard says he needs little guidance when shore- side, even tho he did find it rather difficult to get home the first liberty. • • • • • • • • Headlines in the making is what some call this. Vizard, CPhm. non­chalently strolling down the deck with a 36" pipe wrench in his mits. • • • • • • • • Boris, big " I" man ot" the En~ ineers should join the club. Maybe hIS noc­turnal musings would cease then. Some of his shipmates admit it would be entertaining if he weren't so vague. • * * * * * * • Who is the enterprising young Radioman that copied a message s~ at­ing that:- " This man was horn~ lY discharged", can it be the same m­dividual whose weather report today had " disability zero? * * * * * * • • We are unable to make a statement concerning McNesby and his two flat foot friends in ' Frisco. We know they spent an entire week in futile sear~ h for some addresses. Maybe ~ ac wI: l have an opportunity to contmue hIS search soon. ? ? ? * * * * * * * * What is this rumor concerning " Swede" Larson acting in the role of " match- maker"? ? * * * * * * • * QUESTIONS A D ANSWERS To make a small story short, we ' 11 use a title of a song for the WanIswers and for more 1' n. format'lOn, you WI'II que. st'.' ln person mvolved: h' Q Why does CWT Law part IS Pare Three, hair on the side. A It's the accent ' In youth. Q Why does the Chief Printer use so much Foo- foo. A Just a gigilo. Q Did Clymer profit by his exper­ience the past week. A Brown eyes, why are you blue. Q Why does McCarty come aboard in the wee hours of the morning and stand before the mirror combing his hair. A When did you leave heaven. Q Why did McCormick growl at the mess cook in no. 2 Mess hall. A I just couldn't take it baby. Q Why is CWT Smith always wear­ing a big smile. A He's an old cow hand.

Q Why is Paul Lawson saving his hard earned pennies. A I'm a'headin' for the last round- up. That is all this time, but beware for you may be the next patient. • I • NEW OFFICER TO REPORT Despatch orders were recently re­ceived ordering Lieut. ( jg) Edwin A. McDonald, USN to the Houston for duty. It is expected that he will report today. For some time now Mr. Mc­Donald, who is a member of the Naval Academy Class of ' 31, has been under treatment at the Naval Hospital, San Diego. .11 .. TH K IT OVER! When you have to wait in line for a hair cut, don't growl. The same applies at the canteen, and for delay­ed laundry and tailor services. Just remember, during the past month the Houston has averaged over 775 officers and men in the ships com­pany. • I .. Zeitfuss- Why are you waving your hands in the air? Osborne- Silence Stupid; I'm taking first year shorthand. ••• BM1c- I always thought a Baseball Coach had four wheels". Ye03c- Well, don't they?
