Transcript Page 4 THE BLUE BONNET U. S. S. Houston- 1- 22- 38- 900. ... 1 •• NAUTICAL NOVELTIES The first survey for an Isthmanian Canal in Panama was made by Spain in 1534. o o o o o o o o o Between 1917 and 1919 the Navy had ships made of concrete. These ships were actually used as transports and were seaworthy, although sailors lack­ed confidence in them and sometimes refused to do duty aboard them. The method of construction was similar to that used in constructing modern buildings, that is, using metal rods and pouring the concrete by means of molds. There were only a few of these built. 1.. To sprinkle and swab down, as a deck in hot weather. 2. To slack off gradually. 3. Deeper forward than aft. 4. To heave or lie to, or to come to an anchorage. 5. An order meaning sufficient. 6. To cast adrift or untie. 7. To ascertain the proper course to be steered to make the desired point or port. 8. To turn a vessel with a line. 9. An order to cease. 10. To take apart or to remove from its place. Increasing activi­ty on the part of forces afloat in the training of enlisted men for advancement in rating is indicat­ed by the fact that 65,753 training courses and 45,031 courses of a gen­eral nature were issued during the year. This is an increase of 92.6 per­cent over the number issued during the fiscal year 1936. The Tapir of Africa does not swim across rivers, but instead, walks to the other side on the bottom. -- 0---- THE SURE FOOTED FELINE ( Answer Fifty- two feet was the distance cov­ered by the cat in its ribbon- like course around the rolling log. With the coming of the summer months we are presenting for the first time a new and unique service.

Presenting for your edification, that Tailor of Tailors, Are you one of those poor unfor­tunates who, when mixing a " scotch and ?" step on the fiz bottle only to have the soda go down one side of the glass and out the other finally coming to rest on your best trousers ( mostly in a most embarrassing spot)? If you are you probably know that it never dries? Your tailor knows the answer. By a secret process handed down thru the ages, we can not only dry them but give them that " Ginsberg Look" in nothing flat and for but a small part of a dollar. Bear in mind that when patronizing your neighbor tailor that " You could do worse!" ~ Just around the corner from the Laundry. Do you have spots before your eyes? Are they on your clothes?
