Transcript Greetings shipmates, once again it's time to write of many things that have have happened to and about our shipmates. The most important bit of news is the rumor about the Hous­ton going on a Presidential Cruise this fall. What with it being published in daily papers and announced over the air waves, this rumor may turn out to be more of a fact. Here's hoping we do get to make the cruise. * * * * Your former scoop writer who al­ways got the dope on prospective " G. G." Club members, is himself soon to become a member of their famous club. He is traveling far up to British Columbia to middle aisle it. Too bad that he will leave the club so soon after just becoming a member. Con­gratulations are in order from all, and we hope you return to our club soon. • • • • Last Saturday seemed to be Hous­ton week on the Los Angeles highway. None of our car owners making the trip could get away from the ever alert highway patrol. Lucky Man Head of Ship's Service received the grand prize, a fifty dollar fine for do­ing a little over eighty. Says he could have gotten away but for a pair of trucks that held the road. The other of our speed demons were warned. Some people are pretty lucky. • • • • Here's one for the book! Stockton of the dashing Battalion of Death, belies the name, inasmuch as during his tour of sentry- go as Captain's or­derly, he so far forgot himself in day dreaming of the sweet " little bit of femininity" that he did let the Captain leave the ship, and then about half an hour later, asked the O. O. D. where he could locate the Captain. THE BLUE BON E'l' Baseball is one of the main news items on board these days. Found out that there are quite a number of gOOd ball players who can help out the reg­ular ship's team if they would go out. These division games are quite the number! ot only do we have rooting parties, but there is even a little side betting going on. One member of the " c" Division bet an " s" Division man a " coke." Seems he won the bet but still is waiting for his drink. No payoff? * * * * Dream man Sartor of the Navi­gator's Office is having dreams that have him wondering and worrying. If there are any shipmates who own a dream book or can enlighten him m any way, please call at the ship's li­brary. • • • • Herschel H. Cheek has an original way of receiving love from his one and only. She applies a very liberal amount of tasty lipstick and places a kiss on the inside of the envelope flap. This is in turn labeled " a kiss to you, my darling." • • • • Recommendations for advancements are to be forwarded soon. This ac­counts for all the studious groups you see in all compartments. Here's hop­ing all their studying isn't in vain and that the rates come flying back to the Houston crew. • • • • The State of ew Jersey loses it standing as the home of largest mos­quitoes. The skeeters on this island are surely enjoying themselves ac­cording to the swellings and bruised spots seen on most of the men. Don't even have to slap at this brand; just reach around and pull them off their drilling job. • • • • Westerfeld of the movie shack, traveled all the way to San Francisco to collect an old debt amounting to $ 1.17. Wonder how far he would go for a five spot? • • • • Shepherd, CSK, ha been traveling around the navy yard so much this last week that he now can wear a regulation rifle belt Which make him eligible for shore patrol. Wonder if he got a piece of candy from the box that he presented to the requisi­tion girl in the yard supply depart­ment? Page 3 How To Keep From Growing Old Going up down ladders; going down up ladders. Always drive fast out of alleys. You might hit a policeman; there's no tell­ing. Always race with locomotives to crossings. Engineers like it. It breaks the monotony of their jobs. Demand half the road ... the middle half. Insist on your rights. Always lock your brakes when skid­ding. It makes the job more artistic. Often you can even turn clear ( wheee) around. Always drive close to pedestrians in wet weather. Dry clean rs will erect a monument to your memory. ever sound your horn on the road. Save it until late at night for a door bell. Few homes have guns. Take the shortest route around blind left hand turns. The other fel­low can take care of himself if you can. Never look around when you back up. There never is anything back of your automobile. A few shots of booze will enable you to make your car do real stunts. For permanent results quaff often and deeply of the flowing bowl before tak­ing the wheel. Drive as fast as you can on wet pavements. There is always omething to stop you if you lose control. .. often a heavy truck or a nice plate glass window. Never yield the road to the car be­hind. The driver may be a bootlegger being pursued. Always speed! It looks as thougn you are a man of pep even though an amateur driver. ever stop, look or listen at rail­road crossings. It consumes valuable time, and besides, nobody believes in signs. In wet weather always drive on the trolley tracks. It's smoother going. • 1-" Wife: " Dearie, you have your hat on backwards." Professor: " How do you know, love, which way am I going?" Same, driving his car into the gar­age, eeing it empty exclaims, " Holy Peter, my car's been stolen!"
