Transcript THE BLUE BONNET Page 3 Now that rates are here we'll prob­ably get quite a number of cigars. Congratulations go to all those who have advanced. Wonder if it was a visitor or a member' of the crew who dropped ten cents in the contribution box? Could get a couple of Coco Colas with it but will wait a couple of days in case someone claims it. Then there's the one about the sea­man in the top side washroom who tried all the faucets to find which one was the hot water. After a few min­utes of this he finally asked the men, which was the one. Et- A writer, describing the EXOdus of Eden says, " The devil drove Women out of Paridise, but he could not drive the Paradise out of women." Sea: " Where did you get the shiner?" Cox: " In the war." Sea : " What war?" Cox: " The boudoir." LITTLE OCKO SAYS Et- Pointing to a row of lifebuoys, she asked: " What's the idea of all the spare tires, Lieutenant?" .... Sure have had some nice visitors a­board lately. Various prominent es­corts being Ellstrom, WTlc; Manley, Sea2c; Crippen, Sea2c; and many oth­er names too numerous to mention. Haratyke of the galley has made himself noticeable by a cue- ball hair­cut. Someone said the Slovak brothers acted as barbers, doing both clipping and shaving. Made a visit to the signal bridge the other day. That place looks quite a bit different since our return to the fleet. Everyone busy keeping up the communication activities. Heard a Marine talking about wear­ing top hat and tails not long ago at a party. We'd sure like to have had a picture of that. Might have won a contest with it. Various types of gigolos are known to be present in our vast Navy. At a wedding though, its hardly proper. Ross, Seale, printer's striker, was best man at a friend's wedding. The bride kissed the groom and then the best man, announcing for all to hear the latter had it over her husband. What's this Navy coming to? Carter, Bkr3c, is sure some dandy! Saw him at the Majestic last Saturday eve and that boy was sure goin' to town. Says he likes to dance with those high school girls best of all­they're full of pep and I guess they inspire him to those intricate steps. Bill Yates, SK3c, came back from leave last Sunday. Looks good to see the old boy aboard again. Time flies, soon again comes the holiday season. Better start saving money for leave, boys! And for this time Little Ocko says­So long, Gang! o o o The greatest nutmeg ever known met with a greater. ...... 000 H. Gregson, CMM with a smile on his face was passing out cigars in wholesale lots the other day. Inquiry revealed that the smile and the jut to his chest were caused by the arrival of a baby girl. We're glad you stood up so well, " Chiefy." 000 Haratyk of the galley has quite a worry these days now that all his hair is shaved from his head. He has been threatened to the extent of hav­ing shoe polish smeared on his shiny pate. Sure did take a beating the other day which happened to be his birthday. Do ) ou send the " Blue Bonnet" home? You should as it is your paper. We have been receiving requests from quite a number of persons. The last request was from Texas. The person asked if the paper could be bought and wanted a years subscription. Kunz our local butcher has been getting the razzberries from the cooks. All because of the nice girl who received a new outfit of the latest wearing apparel from him. He hasn't seen her since. 000 Cardenilli F2c was told to get in uniform of the day the other night as only mess cooks were allowed to wear whites. He explained that he was going to the washroom and that he had on regulation underclothes not whites. 000 We should be getting our mail fast­er these coming days now that we have a mail clerk and an assistant. Here's wishing them luck in their new jobs and hope that the Christmas rush doesn't get them down. Zeitfuss our former bugler has the job of waking up the new recruits at Great Lakes. Bet that he is the one person that the recruits don't like in the early morn. His noon day call probably evens things. 000 Ttis week has been devoted mostly to Gunnery and we are all hoping that ~ the " E" will be placed on all guns. This will also mean prize money to the guns who do get the coveted " E." 000 o o o o o o o o o o o o o o o Greetings Shipmates and Neigh­bors' once again we are 011 the air with a bit of news concerning every­thing. Thursday is the day that was waited for by most of the crew for a long time. Now the rent and food bills can be paid off and perhaps a bit of recreation had. Navy Day on board seemed to be just what most of the crew wanted. The escorts sure did a good job of showing off the HOUSTON while quite a number of men had their one and only aboard. The Main Deck Aft was the most crowded spot on the ship most of the day. This was prob­ably due to the divers puttin on their show. Quite a lot of rumors went around the ship Wednesday stating that we were going to return to Long Beach for liberty. Sure had a number of men on their toes when we did go in only to turn right around and head for our anchorage in Pyramid Cove.
