Transcript Little Ocko Says ... ' CASSANOVA' Rushworth and a cer­tain darkeyed beauty sure were doing some fancy truckin' at Ye Olde Rat Race one evening lately. Noticed she was with him at our ship's Christmas Party too. We must say ' Doc' has mighty good taste anyhow. E+ BUCKY Haratyke and ' Texas' Far­quhar reverted to the age old method of settling personal disputes one day this week. Bucky lost a skivvie shirt and we're not sure just what Tex was missing but he said it broke up his cold. Nothing like some morning exer­cise in the open air, you know! E+ SHIRLEY Steele's ' one and only' ( the present one) says Maize, 1st Division, Swab Master, is a cute little lad. Calls him " Mitzie" for short. E+ KU Z, SC3c, Ship's Butcher, has a great C: eal of trouble sleeping lately. Dreamed one night that all the chick­ens in Long Beach were in his place of endeavor and when he opened the door they all flew at him. ' Butch' says he chased chickens all night and never caught a one. MAHL, 1st Division mes cook, ays he likes vaudeville. He pays 15c to see a show on the Pike and sleeps during the movie. Then he wakes up as the stage show comes on to get his mon­ey's worth. E+ A CUTE trick in Long Beach says she can outdo ' Bud' Adams, would~ be Bos'n Mate of the Fo'c's'le Gang, on most anything. She claims Bud went to leep in a tavern not long ago and so she has named him " Pretty Boy" Adams. Tough luck, Pal. E+ TOLSON, Gunner's- Mate- to- be of the armory detail, made a striking picture cranking yeoman striker Moore's ( Gunnery Office) yellow Pontiac road­ster at Los Angeles and 5th streets in L. A. not long ago. Christmas traffic was stopped for three blocks and that big I . h l'lS cop had completely exhaust-e? his vocabulary. Better luck next tIme, boys. THE BLUE BO NET HOW TO lAKE YOUR WIFE RI H For the married man who cannot get along without his liquor, here's a sug­gestion for freeing the home from bondage to the saloon and cocktail lounge: Start a bar in your own home. Be the only customer. You'll have no li­cense to buy and no overhead to pay. Give your wife 4 to buy a gallon, re-' membering the gallon contains 60- odd drinks. Buy your drinks from no one but your wife. By the time the first gallon's gone she'll have $ 6 to put in the bank and $ 4 to stock up again. Should you live ten years, continue to buy from her and then die with snakes in your boots- she will have money enough to bury you, educate the children, buy a house and lot, mar­ry a decent man, and forget about you entirely. An English cub reporter, frll­quently reprimanded for relating too many details and warned to be brief, turned in the following: " A shooting affair ocurred last night. Sir Dwight Hopeless, ague t at Lady Panamore's ball, complain­ed of feeling ill, took a highball, his hat, his coat, his departure, no notice of his friends, a taxi, a pis­tol from his pocket and finally his life. Regrets and all that sort of thing." CHARLEY Chatfield, redheaded speed­ster from First Division, seems to be aboard quite a bit lately. Lo ing your touch, Charley, or going on leave? E+ NOTICE our Sail Locker is again in commi sion. 0' eill, the able Sails Striker is back from a nice Christmas leave in Frisco. Wonder what the at­traction can be. E+ SAW ' LOVER' Hart, ~ ou ton champ­ion gigolo, walking down the Pike a­lone last nite. Must be slipping, Harry. E+ LITTLE OCKO says Start the ew Year right and may it be a Happy one for all hands. Watch what you do at ea and a hore. Little Ocko get around. Page 3 SOMETHI G TO PUZZLE OVER THE DRUNK AND THE FOOTPAD A man living in a big city put in a claim to an insurance company for the loss of a valuable watch. His story was that he had been at a New Year's Eve party which proved so gay that he decided to go home. He had walk­ed a block only when a tranger stop­ped him and asked him the time. No sooner had he pulled out his watch to oblige than the other man seized it, and jumping into a car at the curb, made hi get away. Friends corrobor­ated his story, testifying that he had been at the party and had left two minutes befol'e midnight. The insurance company properlL~ _ refused to pay the claim. Why was this? ( Answer on page 4.) -- 0- A AVY SPLICE " Wilt thou, Jack, have this woman as thy wedded wife, to live together insofar as the Bureau of avigation will allow? Wilt thou love her, com­fort, honor and keep her, take her to the movies and come home regularly to her in the 4: 30 boat?" " I will." " Wilt thou, Jane, have this sailor as thy wedded husband, bearing in mind liberty hours, boat schedules, watches, sudden orders, uncertain mail com­munications, and all other penalties of navy life? Wilt thou obey him, love, honor, and wait for him, press his uni­forms and let him smoke golden grain in the house?" " I will." " I Jack, take thee, Jane as my wed­ded wif~ from 4: 30 p. m. until 7: 30 a. m. as far as permitted by my Command­ing Officer, liberty subject to change without notice, for better for worse, for earlier, for later, and I promise to send thee a weekly letter when on the crui e." " I Jane, take thee, Jack, as my wed­ded husband, subject to the whims of the officer of the deck, changing resi­dence whenever the ship moves, to have and to hold as long as my allot­ment comes regularly, and therefore I give my troth." -< 1---- A wild turkey was clocked in flight at about 55 miles an hour for OVer a distance of a mile.
