Transcript Page 4 THE BLUE BONNET U. S. S. Houston- 8- 13- 37- S00. ( From Page 1.) GROUP " A" Baseball At Benicia game played by a small town. The entire town attends the game and every citizen is mighty proud of their team. It would look good for us to be there in equal numbers. The time is 1430. If you wish to go, turn in your name to the executive office. In spite of reverses and experimen­tation to get the right combination out there on the field the team finally feels that they are ready. The un­earthing of Dingle, WTlc, as a pitcher bolsters up the team in that depart­ment. It will be a good game.

Bugler Steve Kuschill has taken thirty days furlough to that little old windy city called Chicago. ( Lucky Dog!) The " C" Division seems mighty cocky about their baseball scores. It's just their luck that the better half of the marine detachment must be on the range. That can even be taken as a challenge, but I doubt if it will. It is rumored that " Chub" Powell gave his motorcycle away in a mom­ent of generosity. He says the motor wasn't much good anyway. " Tex" Freibele is now in the Chief's pantry. Be careful about the extra weight, Tex, it doesn't become you. The Top says that if you are try­ing to make a good score you will get wet with perspiration. From the way it was Tuesday and Wednesday all of us were certainly trying. We all nearly melted. This goes to press before the final scores are made on the range so just have patience and look again next week for the official scores and home cooked chows. Until then I won't let any more get me in the eye. --- 0--- Professor F. R. Away left his home to be gone all evening. On the way to the station he missed his train so went back home, knocked on the door and a window opened. A voice said, " The professor is out for the even­ing." He thanked her, said he would call again, and walked away. red blood. But that's where some bright ideas startin' coursin' through my skull. Right then I siezed a mallet and clinched over each bill so that nary a skeeter could back up. Tha passel 0' them got so angry finally that they lifted tha whole turret plumb off tha roller path, and tha yard workmen got a chance to get in a mite 0' work there without goin' to devious ways and means to lift her. But we had to shoot them skeeters finally. Seems like evil for good, or somethin. Are you a missin' me nowadays, Sal? Battalion Of Death Blasts Well, faithful readers, here we are, back again with more dope on the old gyrenes. First of all the rifle range is still well manned by the shoot­ers from the Hous­ton. There are plenty of growls about fir­ing on the range all day and standing watches all night but you'll notice that the old sky- larking and horse- play still goes on in spite of all interference. So far the only men to be wounded were corporals- that nasty old rifle kicked them "'"'!! I!!' both right in the eye. Jenner claims that the rifle chased him off the line. Burns says he ( Burns) just lays there and lets the piece knock him around. Yes, yes, some of these boys are mighty rugged. The detachment is hoping that by some stroke of fate the First Ser­geant will shoot about two hundred eighty- five. You see, the Man stated that anyone that made a better score on the range than he did was to re­ceive an invite to a home cooked chow! We all hope to beat him. It's been a long time since I've had a good Home cooked meal. Seriously the scores that have been turned in so far are all very good. There should be a very good crop of money men. We want ull hands to take especial notice of " Long John's" cookie- duster. I mean Lowell Ulrey. It is the most beautiful piece of work I've ever seen. Please compliment him because he is so proud of it. We have three new privates of the first class. They are: " Creeper" Knowles, our dashing com- orderly, Asa " Jon Juan" Huskey, passage way waker- inner, and last but not least, Douglas Wilson, whose character is so noble that no suitable nickname has ever been discovered as yet. He is also a rivet- counter in the upper passageway. All men who are planning on leave must get in line at the office door. ( This little notice is for the three men who have not as yet submitted their names to the office.)
