Transcript THE BLUE BONNET - _ 3 • HEARTY Greetings Shipmates and Friend,! Once again we greet you all from our local stompin' grounds and give you the latest news events. Our first Sunday here we had a few of our former shipmates visit us and tell us about their new positions. You prob­ably remember Finnie, Ex- storekeeper striker, his new work is handling pottery in Los Angeles. Stoddard, ex­seaman of the 4th Division is now pas­sing concoctions over the bar instead of receiving them. • THE local police managed to snare another victim in their traps. This time our chunky baker Barricklo came in wide open and stepped right into one of them. Better watch out Bud, you're a marked man now. • THE first liberty party was some­what disappointed in not being able to go ashore as soon as liberty call sounded. Seems that the motor launch­es decided not to run on that day. • rHE latest rumors regarding all the traveling that we are going to do are beginning to worry the married men. If the dope is true, the name ' Rambler Ship' is rightfully the Houston's. • NEXT month will see the Houston completing eight years of service with the forces afloat. Not many of the plankies left on board to tell about the wonderful trips this ship has had the fortune to make. • ONCE again the crew is standing by for cigars, and congratulations are in order for the men who will have advanced another step in their rates. Quite a number of advancements will take place the 16th of this month. • SURE is good to hear the State­side music again. Hawaiian songs are alright in their way but the many varieties we have here can't be beat. • ' ERLY Hoiman' Manley, GSK strik­er, was invited by Philips, SK3c to see a couple of girl friends. Seems that Phillips received a note telling him to come over and bring jack along. Manley is the only Jack he knows in the S Division, but then again she might have meant the kind of jack that is used to buy things with. The night before receiving this note he got another one telling him to meet the same girl. He waited three hours and finally came back to the ship a very disgusted person. • YATES, SK2c, and Osborne of the Ship's Service must have their daily spat or their day would be spoiled. Heard Yates tell Osborne that he'd put his thumb on Osie and crush him to death. • WHITEY Welbourn, our Sheriff, and Borghetti, our Betting Commissioner, were both recalled from leave in or­der that they get the proper training for next weeks firing. Their smiles were few and far between while man­ning their stations. • REBEL Rogers of the Exec's Office wishes all hands to know that he did not have his teeth knocked out by any Yankee. Claims he fell asleep in the dentist's chair and woke up minus them. We can say that he's still man­aging to outdo most of the men on his mess. • MANY men are quite upset about their coat of tan disappearing due to the lack of sunshine. They thought it would be time to go swimming in Long Beach when they got back but the unusual weather is still with Cal­ifornia. • SMITH, G. A., our former printer, is now struggling with types and presses on the U. S. S. Outside after 8 years in the service. Mark another ex- Houstonite down as making good on the beach where you have to be good. Battalion of Death Blasts .... And a good. afternoon to you. It has been many moons since this col­umn has hit the print so here goes.- The 01' dopester hasn't been a­round much since the cruise but gets the dope just the same. Some of the boys opened up a little once we hit the states again and did some things that are worth remembering. PF · C Wilson seems to be striking for side­cleaner since he drank all that Sloe­gin. It left a nice pink color all over the side, and must have been pretty hard to get off. One of our amateur photograph­ers pulled a nice trick on our Police Sergeant the other day, his last few days aboard too. The man took some pictures on the trip around the is­land and didn't have the nerve to take them in to have them developed so, very innocently he gave them to Jen­ner, who also went back to get them. The girl clerk wanted to look through the pictures with Sarge and imagine his embarassment when they ran a­cross a certain picture that should never have been taken... Now Jenner is waiting for his relief to come a­board and then he will be on his way home for ten days befol'e he has to be in Mare Island for duty. We will see him out on the good ship Houston when we scrape bottom. People like that just can't stay away. Johnstone sure has been taking off since we came back. I wonder if he swings the Crysler around like he did the bus in Honolulu. Coursey and Norris, our two most up and coming communication order­lies, went ashore on a dollar and came back holding hands trying not to make any noise. They almost succeeded too. Fabick is slowly getting his gear and clothing fixed for a quick pack­up. Lambie- pie isn't very far behind either. He isn't interested in the com­ing cruise, so he says. And that is all there is time for before the press starts putting out this week's Blue Bonnet, so ' nice to have met you'.
