Transcript Page 2 THE BLUE BON ET --- 0- Send the BLUE BON ET home. Savings Bonds ( From Page I.) -: THE BLUE BONNET :- A weekly publication, published by the ship's company of the U. S. S. HOUSTON, Captain G. E. Baker, U. S. N., Commanctinl' and Com' mander C. A. Bailey, U. S. N., Executive Officer. EDITOR, Lieut. ( jg) E. A. McDonald Assistant Editor: R. C. Ball, Ch. Pay Clerk Associate Editor: A. D. Hall, MMlc Full Power Run Successful Attention Houston Poker Experts Can you solve this one? Six men were playing a game of draw poker at a round table. All stay­ed the first round before the draw. Swartzell sat between two players who bumped the pot before the draw. Crego thought Webb a slow player. The dealer had two pair at the go in. Jones put the least money in the pot. Webb had never held a straight flush in his life. Brown got first cards on the draw. The winner did not bump before the draw. The pot was opened under the guns. Eufemia was sorry for the player on his right who held four aces at the go in. The first card dealt on the draw to the second player on the dealer's left was red. The player on Webb's left looked at the discards. Now name the dealer, the opener, and the winner of the pot; and also place the various players in the order in which they sat. The best and nearest correct an­swers dropped in the Blue Bonnet con­tribution box in the recreation com­partment will be in the next issue along with the correct answer. Added provision: If there are too many cor­rect answers to print, then the names of those submitting correct answers will be printed. ( From Page 1.) deal more to it than that: To complete such runs at high speed with no cas­ualties or penalties, requires not only the smooth- working cooperation of every man in the Black Gang- from the fireman on the floorplates to the Chief Engineer in Main Control- also, but often overlooked, is the fact that complete success depends on the help and cooperation of all hands outside the department directly concerned. Because this help was so willingly given all along the line, the Chief En­gineer wishes to sincerely thank all who played a part however small, not omitting the " forgotten men," those deck force mess cooks who took care of that duty for the day. Dear Sal, You got me all flabbergasted and a wearin' one 0' those sick moonin' looks. ' Tis worse'n spring fever ere tha sulphur and black strap commenc­es a workin' on a body's feelin's and blood stream. And tha boys have to blare out a blast 0' reveille in my direction afore they can get me to connect tha brain cells with my hearin' gear. You've sorta took tha spring outa my frame, Sal, but tha brain is a dwellin' and a takin' it easy in some mighty comfortin' thoughts. Certainly caused my peepers to want to come a pilin' outa tha sock­ets and take a lotta hop, skips, and jumps around to see tha good old homestead again and all the familiar noggins. First thing I did after Boozy Bow­man brought me over from Simson­ville through a gawkin' passel 0' yo­kels in front 0' tha general store was to set out a searchin' for Felix. ice and polite I was a goin' to pass out a warnin' for tha conivin critter to stay away from your doorstep. Tha word musta got out fasterin' wild fire cause nary a soul could remember a seein' Chicken Mouth after I hove up. Bet he's a tremblin' and a hidin' ' n some black hole a coupla counties away. I'll never forget us, a swingin' ' n tha barrel stave hammock and a holdin' hands. Gone went tha thoughts 0' my multiplyin' pigs and poultry. Gone went tha hankerin' to sail again on tha salty brine. There was just you, a yearnin' for a smackin' kiss from me. And I was a reachin' over with tha feeliin' 0' heaven ' n my soul, a goin' to touch your lips with my spray splashed ones when all of a sudden tha barrel staves gave a mighty crack and poured us on tha cold hard dirt, so hard and a makin' so much confusion it brought your Pa out fasterin' a fox at a huntin' ( Continued on Page 4.) Robert B. Thompson, Seale 16 July 1937 Circulation: bank or trust company, and forward­ing to the Treasury Department which will promptly send a check drawn to the order of the owner of the bond. Redemption may be made at any time after sixty days from date of purchase at purchase price plus the accrued interest as stated on the face of the bond. The Treasury Department shows an attractive point when they remind you that an investment of $ 18.75 per month for one hundred twenty months then assures the investor of an in­come of $ 25.00 per month for the same length of time. In addition they point out that Savings Bonds, the same as any other government bonds, are not taxable; though, likewise, may not be held to aggregate of more than $ 10,000.00 in one calendar year. Which last statement is of course of little importance to the average en­listed man. Further information on United Stat­es Savings Bonds may be had by simply sending a letter requesting such to the Treasurer of the United States, Washington, D. C. Army Buys Autogyros The Secretary of War recently an­nounced the purchase of six autogyros complete with spare parts from the Kellet Autogyro Corporation of Phil­adelphia, Pa., at a cost of slightly over $ 238,000. They are to be used by the infantry, artillery and cavalry for re­connaissance, observation of fire, car­rying messages, and command mis­sions. They have a cruising speed of 125 miles an hour and a minimum en­durance of two and a half hours with the ability to land on a 150 foot field.
