The Blue Bonnet, the Supply Depart­ment, Galley, and Bake Shop, in fact the entire Ship's Company, are soon to sustain a heavy loss. Our popular Chief Pay Clerk, Mr. Ball, leaves us on March 12. Little Ocko ! lure hopes he gets a chance to serve with him a­gain some day! Mr. Ball will always be remembered as one of our finest officers and friends, and above all, a fine shipmate. Prominently present at the rat races and stampede in the Majestic recent­ly were Hattemer, 2nd Division boat cox'n, and Simmons, Exec's Office Yeo­man striker. " Bucky" Haratyk, Spud Cox'n, was seell smiling with pleasure or sompin, while Hart and Balicki al­so ran. Little Ocko Says ... Bill Murray, CWT, says one evening recently he opened the pantry door to see Shepherd, " nut and bolt" big man from G. S. K. with his head in the ice box. After waiting for some time Bill asked Shepp to move. Shepp said im­possible and when Murray asked why, Shepherd told him he'd been in the ice box so long his ears had frozen and he was afraid to pull his head out. , Murray gave up ( From Page 2.) Luke had it lJefore, Paul had it be­hind, Mathew never had it, all girls have it once, boys cannot have it. Old Mrs. Mulligan had it twice in succes­sion. Dr. Lowell had it before and be­hind and he had it twice as bad behind as he had it before. What in the " L" was it? his behind with a swab handle, " and you was raised by some 0' this too." ' Pears to me that tha Navy is no place for tha likes 0' him and he'll be a coolin' his heels in tha brig one 0' these days, a wishin' for some good old Navy chow ' stead 0' bread and water he'll be a gettin'. Shure hope you ain't mad. Love Gus 4 · .. Nosey News Gus's Weekly Letter ( From Page 3.) Hearing the deckhands growl about all the brightwork they have to po­lish brings to light that firerooms have more brightwork than they have ever seen. They should take a look at No. 4 fireroom and see what braslii really should look like. E+ Shepherd CSK has been doing quite a bit of growling lately. Seems that he is being reminded of his old Army days with the marching that goes on across the deck over the Chiefs' quar­ters all night. He just can't go to sleep because of this. E+ " Spike" Mullane gets quite a hand during his daily speeches in the mess­ing compartment during meals. Sure has a voice that would make any Sen­ator proud to possess. E+ As yet no one seems to know what that box in the forward messing com­partment is for. That is where you place your bit of news concerning shipmates who should be in the light, so just remember to drop in notes re­vealing all events which can make this column longer and more nosey. So till next week here's hoping that the box is filled wit!: all the latest scandal and good news. A total of 30,982 advancements in rating among en­listed personnel of the Navy wereef­fected during the fiscal year. That " Coal Trees" have remained complete through the ages which turned them into coal. They are found in mines standing in their normal po­sition and perfectly formed, except that their roots, trunks, branches, and even their leaves have been converted into coal. That the noise created by twenty­seven singers is only twice that of one singer. " Bluejackets in the U. S. Navy wear neither suspenders nor belts with reg­ulation trousers. The trousers are made waist tight fit. In days of sail­ing ships when it was necessary to go aloft to furl sail, it was not desired to have any loops or articles of cloth­ing which might be caught on the marlin spikes or pin rails." That paper was invented in China about 102 A. D. It was introduced into Spain by the Moors in 1151, where its resemblance to papyrus led the Europeans to call it paper. Paper did not come into general use until the fourteenth century, when a pa­per mill was erected in Germany. Most of the products of this mill were used for school books. The expression in the Navy of " go­ing to mast" probably had its origin from sailing vessel days when the Captain of the ship meted out pun­ishment for violation of the rules by holding court at the base of the mast. Today the practice is still in use, but in addition requests from enlisted personnel are considered at this time. When called before the mast for ex­ceptional performance of duty, in or­der to make commendation, it is term­ed meritorius mast.
