Transcript Greetings shipmates and congratula­tions to those who advance another step in their rde. During this week, two events of great importance oc­cured. First we had our annual Ad­miral's Inspection which came off with best results. All hands are congrat­ulated for their untiring efforts in keeping the Rambler Ship up to its usual standard. Second, the advance­ment in ratings quota which shows that there is always an opportunity to become what. you desire in this mans Navy. 8- Sure sorry to see the Flag leave us, not only because we lose our good berth, but because they sure are a pretty good gang of fellows. Here's hoping we get them back on board soon. With them goes that well or­ganized orchestra and our nightly happy hours. 8- " Rebel" Rogers, Seaman of the " F" says he can't _ end mail to his home in Georgia if the stamp has General Sherman on it. Can't forget that ride thl'u that fair state. His secret am­bition is to become a member of the K. K. Ks. 8- Many hard words have been directed at me due to some items in this col­umn but the latest and hardest was being told that I should be horse­whipped for some of the items publish­ed. No hard feelings are intended in this column but we must publish news which interests the crew. 8- This Saturday finds the Houston rep­resented in the Fleet finals by Chick of the " V" Division. Lets all go out there and cheer him to a victory and watch him bring back a Fleet belt to this ship. Good Luck to you Chick. THE BLUE BONNET Wednesday's noon meal had all hands mouths watering an, d much credit must be given to the cooks for put­ting out a meal such as they did. Won't be long before we will be los­ing two of our best liked cooks, Paul and Andy Slovak. They intend to re­turn to Wyoming and put out their delightful meals to Dudes who visit the ranches noted for their wonder­ful entertainment. 8- Wonder if the person whose slippery fingers happened to take a package of cigarettes from the petty officers' washroom has an idea of what he act­ually did take. Inside the package of cigarettes was a bit of money and a ci­garette lighter. Pretty cheap of him to take a package of less than five cigar­ettes. 8- DeBri is being haunted lately by the Foutch twins. Always has one on eith­er hand asking him sultry questions. The only way he can escape them is by going ashore and then he dreams of them. 8- Now that we have three SK2c's on board, they are all arguing as to who will be transferred first. Sivak and Yates are competing for duty at Sa­moa while Cochrane desires duty in San Francisco so that he can be clos­er to his fair one. 8- Talking about storekeepers has us wondering whether Slough really in­tends to sell ice- cream in Galveston. He is the type who would eat more than he'd sell. Two- to- one he'll ship over. This gamble due to his desire to be close to Wilmington. 8- Don't forget that we have a wonder­ful chance of getting a number of points in Athletics. The Basketball team has a couple of games coming off and lots of ~ upport should be given them. 8- Won't be long before we will be los-ing one of the most liked officers on board. Heres hoping we may all have the chance to serve with you once a­gain Mr. Ball. Al 0 noticed in orders to officers that Lt- Cmdr. V. M. Davis will become the Commanding Officer of the U. S. S. WASMUTH. We wish him the best of luck in hs new command. ( Continued on page 4.) Page S Little Ocko . Ivan E. " Ski" Mustain, SM3c, has come back to the fold like all good sailor men do. " There's something a­bout a sailor's life -," how about it Ski? Needless to say we'll be glad to go up on the bridge and see that hap­py, smiling face again! Welcome!! Johnny Sharp, GM2c of turret three's efficient crew, has had some time ex­plaining the black eyes and so on re­ceived on entering the compartment in the dark recently. Don't know for sure if he fell over a hatch or what. Ask Lewis, BMlc, Johnny, maybe he can tell you what happened. A. M. G. Kunz, 8C3c, our Clever Cleav­er Master of the butcher shop is tak­ing a rest cure in the sick bay. Be­fore long we hope to see him back carving steaks once more. Archie Holmqui I., Stores Striker, is recuperating in the sick bay from an auto accident in Los Angeles. It be­comes a miracle that more harm was not done after a look at his visage. Tough break, Pal. Vendetti, SClc, our Jack- o'- the- Dust, is again threatening to go out on twen­ty. Well, I'll tell you, he's been talking that way ever since he passed the six­teen year mark and is still good for thirty years. Saw Coats, ex- 1l\ 12c of the boat shop on the beach recently. Says he's mak­ing out fine. He's got the stuff it takes and we wish him a lot of luck. ' Gratulations to the boys who have succeeded in going one more step up the ladder of Navlife. Don't for­get the " ceegars" fellows! Ought to be plenty of them- we hope! " Tex" ' V. G. Farquhar, SC3c, left us for duty on the U. S. S. Kanawah, an oil tanker. Good luck Tex! Hat. ch, CQM, ha been in the habit of singing " Tha Music Goes Down and Round". The chiefs are hoping he gets a new tune soon. Spike ' Iullane, Chief Sherrill has 10 I. competition in the Quarters for hav_ ing a loud voice. Freer, CY has gone back to the Indianapolis so Spike is alone in his glory. ( Continued on page 4.)
