Transcript THE OSEY EWS reports are here again! Broadcasting a bit of chit chat about everyone ... the lowdown on all who err ... and scraps of in­formation garnered here and there, on board and ashore. Tune in on these " behind the scenes" notes and become one of the knowing class. * * '" '" BYRON McELHANON is walking a­round with his chest ( ?) sticking away out now that Bob Burns has put his home state of Arkansas on the map. Claims that it is the mecca of all tour­ists. * * '" '" THE C& R Department has the ship turned into a puzzle house lately. The doors in the officers' quarters are the hardest to get through. One night this week an officer went through one of these doors into a room and couldn't get out in time to get his dinner. Seems they took the knobs off and forgot about the locks being self- clos­ing. '" * '" '" THE CO TE TS of a letter to one of our shipmates from his favorite in Texas revealed that those tall mus­cular men down thaI' aren't cracked up to what they claim. It so happened that a sailor on leave in San Antonio was having his afternoon drink at one of the cafes to pass the day along. While paying for his bit of refresh­ment three men noticed the large a­mount of money he was carrying and decided right there and then that it was too much for one man. The out­come of this decision was- three badly beaten men. The sailor returned to the bar and continued his former oc­cupation as though nothing had hap­pened. THE BLUE BON ET DID YOU NOTICE: That " Hank" Cromwell doesn't care for Navy Chow? That Ehlo was human? That the G. Go's come back early to avoid breakfast dishes? That the cokes have shrunk? The love light in El­wood's eyes? Palmar, MM1c, sizing up his " Buttons" in front of the mir­ror daily? That Shaw, CM1c, does his best work with a hammer and chisel? The 9- 7 is the most popular number on board, see Farquhar, SC3c. A draft 01' is it Yap Yap Campbell? '" '" '" '" THE LATEST information concern­ing the ship's dance is that there doesn't seem to be enough men inter­ested in whether we have a dance here or not. Due to the Ship's Service pur­chasing a new fountain, funds may not be available at the present time. '" '" '" '" FI NIE, Storekeeper Striker Extra­ordinary has worries on his hands and can't wait until Friday to get rid of them. His one and only is here in Val­lejo and he can't find anyplace worth while to take her to. Wonder if he can get a loving kiss from her that wouldn't hurt him due to a boil on his adam's apple. * '" '" '" YAP YAP CAMPBELL has been de­tailed as a swimming instructor. This was probably to have him become an underwater man in order to save the rest of us from having to hear his loud voice. There are some who hope he will try to yell when under about ten feet. * * '" '" YATES, SK3c, of the Pay Office left the ship to get an operation performed 011 his nose, with him went Berg to have the same done to his proboscis. Can't tell what these sailors will have done to beautify themselves. Of course we know that nothing will help the e two to become models for magazine covers. '" '" '" '" THE BASEBALL GAME between the" F" and " S" Divisions turned out to be one of the big events of the Houston's overhaul. Quite a crowd witnessed this game and were very disappointed when the game did not go another inning to see if the 6 to 6 tie would break. Page 3 T ESDAY the ship had for a visit­or one of Tommy's Place barmaids. Seems all hands knew her as they all went up and greeted her. The crowd around her reminded us of the foot­ball games coming soon, huddles but no tackles was all that took place. '" '" '" '" WHAT WITH ALL the e holes bt> ­ing placed in the decks, one must be very careful of where he walks. The yard workmen have them all over the ship and are still making more. They should furnish red lanterns to place around them as the highways have them. '" '" '" '" THE ME S COOKS sure will miss those two cranes alongside the ship when we leave here. Perhaps we can manage to have one placed on board in order that when the stores are de­livered the crane will pick up and place them wherever it is desired. '" * '" * WE HAVE WITH S again that man Sartor who has just returned from leave on the East Coa t. Tells us how good it really is back there and how nice the girls are since all the navy girls left from there to be with the fleet on the West Coast. '" '" '" '" THESE DIVISIO baseball games '\ re the bright spot in our stay in the yard. From now on with the new sche­dule in effect the competition will be a lot tighter, and all hands are begin­ning to wonder who'll cop the pdze. A part of the prize will be that loving cup which the leathernecks won by taking the division baseball champion­ship while the Houston was in China. * '" '" '" GET OUT YO R fishing pole and hooks for the fishing derby on 26 Sept­ember, because there is a lot of prize money offered. Wouldn't be bad at all to see orne of the Bou ton fishermen take over some of that $ 1,000 in cash and $ 1,000 in merchandise. '" '" '" '" RE IE IBER; names make news, so stand by for the next issue of the Blue Bonnet and your name will ap­pear in this column if you slip in your daily doings. So till next week we say be careful of what you do.
