Transcript Page 2 THE BLUE BONNET -: THE BLUE BONNET :- 6 ovember 1937 OUR PLEA! Dear Sal, With tha smell 0' fall waftin' to our brine kissed noses nowadays us Nav­ies which use to steer a team through tha plough furrows before we joined up with Uncle Sam are beginnin' to get the itch to grab a huntin' rifle and go in search 0' game. There's nary a thing we can spend our hankerin' on though ' cause tha only fowls flappin' over tha deep are sea gulls. And a body can't shoot these critters as tha law is with them, and if we as much as harm a feather off their bony backs we'll get hoisted into tha brig. Every time 0' tha year Pa com­menced feelin' aches in his bones he ' lowed tha season had swung ' round when tha ducks were a comin' in, so he'd grab up our double barreled blun­derbuss to be off to tha old slough. Tha danged firearm kicked worse'n a mule. Ma allus said that she just couldn't see why such a shock to his frame didn't aggravate his rheuma­tiz, but Pa allus muttered it was good for him as it loosened up his joints thus providin' space for lubrication. Old Hank Hossemer had a good tale about duck huntin' which he use to spill when sippin' hard cider and tha vapors of alcohol loosened his tongue. " Well, it was about thirty years back, just afore tha hard winter 0' ninety- seven," he would say. " Scads 0' wild ducks flew into tha country from everywhere, but a body allus had bet­ter luck bringin' home a full bag 0' game by usin' tame decoys. You know, I'll be dad gumed if it didn't turn out that I soon had two of tha smartest decoys these parts have ever seen. I watched these ducks hatch from eggs, watched their fuzz change to feath­ers, and watched tha colors come out and shine like tha blazin' sun. I fed them special grains and gave them choice morsels. I was father and moth­er practically to them ducks. They liked tha idea of foolin' their wild ( Continued on Page 4.) The group elimination contests for Group " C", Heavy Cruiser unit, in boxing and wrestling are scheduled as follows: Northampton vs Minneapolis - 11 Dec. vs Pensacola - 18 Dec. vs Houston - 22 Jan. vs Vestal - 29 Jan. Minneapolis vs Pensacola - 8 Jan. vs Houston - 20 Nov. vs Vestal - 27 Nov. Pensacola vs Houston - 27 Nov. vs Vestal - 4 Dec. Houston vs Vestal - 15 Jan. The meets will be held in the Ad­miral Leigh Gymnasium at San Pe­dro. Winners of group ( division) com­petition will meet winners of other group competitions. Come on HOU­STON, let's get some points here. ---(}-- DISCIPLI E SECTION - BUNAV ( Continued from Page I.) DATES FOR CRUISERS BOXING A D WRESTLING SET tal condition of the individual at the time the offense was committed. Where there is reason to believe that the man was not responsible for his actions, he is, if possible, brought before a Board of Medical Survey. If he is found in­competent by the Board of Medical Survey, or in the case of a man still in desertion, by competent civil autho­rities, and has not been tried the Bu­reau removes the mark of desertion, recommends that the charges be drop­pel and gives him a discharge war­ranted by his previous record. If the man has already been tried the Bureau recommends to the Secretary of the Navy that the case be set aside and discharge then effected. This section also receives corres­pondence addressed to the Department regarding enlisted men's indebtedness or failure to support their dependents. Such correspondence is referred to the Commanding Officer concerned, with the request that he bring it to the man's attention, advise the man of his responsibility and direct him to reply to the letter. Occasionally when a man deceives his Commanding Offi­cer or refuses to live up to his prom­ises the Bureau directs his discharge as " undesirable." In less aggravated cases, the Bureau refuses to reenlist the man until his domestic affairs are in order. ( jg) E. A. McDonald R. C. Ball, Ch. Pay Clerk Stefan Sivak, Jr., SK2c R. B. Thomplon, Seale John Borl., F2c Editor, Lieut. Aalistant Editor: As80ciate Editors: Circulation: Thoroughly astonished last month was air pilot Mack McInnis. Landing in a field at Clarksdale, Miss., McInnis asked the assistance of bystander Grady Matledge, who had never be­fore been in a plane. As the pilot spun the propeller, Matledge sat at the controls with in­structions. Suddenly the motor spurt­ed, roared wide open, carried the as­tonished helper down the field in a perfect take- off. A few minutes later, after an equally perfect landing, neo­phyte Grady stepped from the cock­pit, remarked casually; " FortunatelY I remained cool and in a few minutes learned how to operate the machine. .....

All ye sons of Neptunus Rex who use sepia or gra­phite at the easel- Or to elucidate further for your enlightenment, we mean all who are able to formulate straight lines and curves on paper or parchment thus arranging them in a form or design to some scheme or plan so that they will resemble figures, ob­jects, or persons which or who will cause to be emitted laughs, other out­breaks of humor, or sighs of admira­tion, heed our entreaty to the fact that we wish your assistance. A square or rectangle within the confines of our pamphlet, or to be more exact, our purveyor of news into which is to be inserted the before described intelli­gent arrangement of lines is the area which we desire emblazoned with the art.
