Transcript GREETINGS friends, neighbors and shipmates. Another week gone by with many events happening to our crew. Navy yard overhaul seems to have a great many of the men on board seeking information as to whether they can get a job here after they get paid off. * * * * THE yard workman who has the furnace on the well deck has quite a large crowd watching him around liberty time. Every time he tosses one of those red hot rivets to the riveter, the crowd stands on toes wondering if the catcher is going to miss. * * * * SHOULD have a book of baseball rules when divisions meet each other in their baseball battles. As it is the decisions made have settled all dis­putes and the games have come out nicely. The grandstands have a good sized rooting party and all hands seem to get in the proper spirit of it all. * * * * OSBORNE, Ye02c, and Berg, yeo­man striker, are waiting for each other to make the first break so that either one can put the other on the spot. Berg almost had little Ozzie at the mess table, but lost out when told that he wasn't being addressed. * * * * * THE game between the HB" and HE" Divisions was almost called off on ac­count of darkness Wednesday, but because of the HE" Division's players being able to stand the skeeters a­round the bench the " B" Division de­cided to give them a break and finish­ed the game. The game finished with the HE" Division trailing with the final score 14 to 1.0. THE BLUE BONNET STEELE, SC3c, is taking quite a bit of razzing from his shipmates. And all this due to a misunderstanding with the girl friend. She, it seems, has him wondering a bit also. With all the advice that he has been receiv­ing he shouldn't go wrong. * * * * MANY growls were heard last pay­day around the pay office. This was due to many of the men figuring on being paid for one day too many. As a little matter of clearing up this item, it should be understood by all hands that we get paid for only 30 days a month and that the 31st day of a month is a day that we do not get paid for. * * * * NOW that McCormick has been rated to BM2c he is looking for a good cox­swain. He would like very much to get Charlie Campbell as his assi<.::. mt In fact we would all like to see this great team together. * * * * THE forward mess hall is patiently waiting for the bomb to burst around the Storekeeper and Yeoman mess. Storekeepers are favorites due to hav­ing Yates as their leadoff man in the growling section. As soon as the dis­ruption in the Storekeepers gang gets settled perhaps the Yeomen will con­cede the battle. * * * * QUITE a chewing fiesta was held in the mess attendants compartment the other day. Fields vs Evans took chances at biting each other with the outcome being part of Evans ear missing and a finger of Fields almost chewed off. Right now they are fast­ing after their hungry battle. * * * * WITH the installation of a new bak­ing oven, Barricklo states that the pastry will be of better grade and more brands. Just keep it coming as before and everything will be O. K. * * * * THESE weeks in the yard sure do go by fast and many an interesting bit of news is passing us by. Contri­butions are nil, so if you see or have any news at all, we will print it. Just drop it in the box in the forward mess hall and look for it in the Blue Bonnet next week. Page 3 San Francisco This city was discovered by a sail­or trying to get away from Los An­geles. He must have been a Swiss or these Pacific Alps would have dis­couraged him. They discovered gold near here, and thousands of girls are still dig­ging for it. San Francisco has a Chinatown and we'll probably get chop suey on board. They also had an earthquake, which may explain the way the girls dance. Don't walk too far out of town or you'll run into the city limits of Los Angeles. ' This part of the country used to belong to Mexico but the Irish and the Chinese crowded the chili boys out. San Francisco overlooks the bay, and we hope the people overlook any of the boys who gaze at the wine when it's red. This is one city you cannot get lost in- just roll downhill or take a street car- both will get you down to the waterfront. Seattle has its postoffice as a fleet hangout, and the Frisco ferry build­ing is a great place to meet the girl friend also. We hear that the girls have been on a diet awaiting our arrival. Don't pay any attention to that sign " Join the Navy" on Goat Island­you've already been inoculated. There are no goats on Goat Island unless you count the boys who are waiting for the transports to take them to the Asiatic Station. And if you miss a liberty boat and take a ferry to Mare Island, that's a horse on you- Ouch! Incidentally, don't try to be too salty with the citizens- they get more sea duty on the ferries than you get on a cruiser. They never give anybody the key to the city, they hand them the key to the Golden Gate and let them swim around. There is a lovely pond in Golden Gate Park where you can go rowing for a change when on liberty. This is one part of California where they do not bray about Sunny Calu­ornia. When it gets foggy they call it Oregon mist- it just missed Ore­gon and settled here. - Pensacola Gator.
