Transcript THE BLUE BONNET Page 3 GREETINGS; shipmates and neigh­bors. This week finds us gently rock­ing to and fro at berth " F." Sure is good to be on a ship that rates moor­ing inside the breakwater. * * * * THE SCOFOR band sure is appre-ciated by the crew according to the crowd that gathers around them when they start playing the latest tunes of the day. They do a good job of it also. * * * * COCHRANE, SK3c, is another stay aboard, practiced kissing somewhere and wanted to show quite a number of men how to excell in this art. THE WORDS " No pay day this Fri­day" sure did put many men in a rath­er shock status. Seems quite a number of men were expecting to do mighty things this week- end. * * * * THE MOVIE " Too Tough To Handle" was given a very extra hissing on board the other night. Reminded many an old timer of the days of old when the villian was booed and hissed off the stage. Anderson, leatherneck oarsman, needs a few lessons in seamanship. The other day we watched him unty­ing a mooring knot in the pulling whaleboat and were certain the line would part before the knot would slip. The other morning Ehlo, WT2c, P. P. O., came into a compartment say­ing " Gimme a break boys, let's up all bunks." Odd remark for him to make, and he says he's afraid he'll lose that singing voice of his. Maybe it was a good joke but " Mac" McCormick, BM2c, didn't think so. Haratyke, Ship's Cook striker was guilty, so Mac claims, of salting the latter's coffee. He also said the Polock had better be careful because he was out after his hide. Little Ocko wonders if Mac has completed his job of skin­ning Hal'atyke as yet. What is the true story and what is " Wimpy" Wilkinson telling about that new regulation haircut of his? You'll have to think fast to get a suitable story for your numerous girl friends Wimpy. Looks pretty good to see the old familiar faces of the " V" Division, and the planes on topside again! Jack Machado " viII have plenty for " F" Division to do from now on. Ye Olde Bake Shoppe is doing a good job of putting out pastries these days. Surely a lot better than the sub­stitutes from the beach we had at Mare Island. Little Ocko says Bar­riclo and Carter deserve a good word from all hands. Prospects look pretty good for the Rambler Ship to show some good stuff in boxing this year. Activities in No. 2 Messing Compartment every after­noon show plenty of promise. Good luck, fellows. Have heard many queries about who it could be that is always changing the various bugle calls. A person can hardly tell if it is intended for " Water­tight Doors" or " Reveille." Little Ocko has said enough- may­be too much, and So Long ' till next week. LITTLE OCKO SAYS The bandmaster who came aboard with the Scofor Flag can't fool us: He's the same one that was here last time, we'd know him if he had a full beard. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * WOULD BE a great surpriSe to us all if we woke up to find that sun these Californians always claim their wonderful state has. London sure is losing her title of " Foggy City" com­pared to Long Beach. ONE WASHROOM didn't seem to be large enough to hold the ship's com­pany Thursday nearing liberty time. Several arguments almost led to fisti­cuffs due to water being spilled on persons trying to dry themselves while others objected to being pushed while trying to shave. WEDNESDAY should be a great daY to all hands seeing as how it is " Navy Day." Have been reading about how they want to make a " Navy Week" instead of just one day. Wonder if it would mean a week's resting. HAVE YOU EVER tried to get a seat in one of the theatres in town when they are having bank night. Almost as bad as our every night show. * * * * " BALDY" DAVIS, new concocter of refreshing beverages at our remodel­ed drinking fountain sure is mighty handy with the dispensing. No chance for line- ups with him behind the bar, at least he says sO. MEMBERS OF THE 3d Division are hoping that tubes will not be blown in their direction again now that they have once again held a field day on their decks. THE MEN of the " V" Division are quite in a daze wondering where they are supposed to put all the equipment. They sure are doing a good piece of work straightening out the port hang-ar. Q ITE A NUMBER of men are won­dering why we are going out this coming Monday! All we know is that we are to observe the Salt Lake City on some practice. RUSHWORTH of the Sick Bay has been staying aboard quite a bit lately. Perhaps certain friends of his have deserted him in time of need. * * * * * * * * MCELHA ON is going up the ladder of communism very much these days. He is even trying to become a leader of this class over the other storekeep­ers. Three months to do for him and perhaps we may see him leading a pa­rade down Market Street in Frisco carrying a colorful banner. * * * * MANY GROWLS about the size of cups used in the soda fountain are be­ing received. Perhaps there was a mistake in ordering these cups and it won't be long before they run out of them and we get back to the larger size ones.
