Now everyone knowsh I tel no liesh, And I shaw it widsh my own two eyes. T'wash tha shillies thing I ever did shee, For he shat on hish handsh with hish head on hish knees. And he shat and he shat, such a stupid face I laffed ash i shat on the empty case. My casesh musavben bolted down Caush i shat on the ceiling, my faysh to tha ground.

An Experiensh . . . . ....... Editors' Exclamations Getting a paper out is no picnic; If we publish original matter, they say we lack variety, If we publish things from other pap­ers, they say we are too lazy to write, If we stay on the job, we ought to be rustling up news, If we don't print all contributions, we don't show proper appreciation, If we do print. them. the paper is filled with ' junk', Like as not some fellow will say we swiped this from some other paper. Well we DID. So how's about some contributions for next week's paper? "' 1'" Webb: The girls run after my kisses. Hart: So what? After mine, they limp. Preacher's parrot: " What shall we do to be saved? What shall we do to be saved 1" Sailor's parrot: " Pump like hell or we go to the bottom. Pump like hell or we go to the bottom." He who laughs last didn't get the joke in the first place. rQn). • .~-< ~ ;.:::: ............ Q) ~ rQn). 0 ~ 4-> 4-> Q) b.

He looked neither to the left nor to the right. He had eyes only for the goal and mind only on the prize. Mercilessly, inch by painful inch he dragged himself onward in a straight, unbroken line. The hare was obviously the better man and was off to an early lead. But he could not pass a strange road with­out darting off his course to inves­tigate as far as he dared, and some­times farther. There were many such bypaths on the course, some dark and forbidding, some bright and promis­ing. To the inquisitive, wide- eyed hare all beckoned irresistibly. He was now thrilled, now terrified by what he found. But he missed not one. The tortoise reached the goal first. Who won what? - Howard Blake. ( A Coronet Item). ...... Seaman Sam says that paying ali­mony is like putting nickles in the gas meter after the stove has been disconnected. And Navy Bill says that a woman's mind is cleaner than a man's because she changes it more often. IT is an old Naval tradition that mari­ners who have been north of the Arctic Circle rate putting both feet on the mess table after sup­per, while those who have made the passage around the Horn can only put one foot on the table. All others keep their feet on the deck. THERE is on record a ship that ran aground on the ice- bound coast of Chile and kept mules ' hauled out' to the port quarter boom for use as ' run­ning boats' to the beach. Also, old whalers frozen in for the winter in the pack in Berring Sea frequently kept dogs and sleds secured to the ship for the same purpose. THE submarine S- 14, while running submerged off Bartlett Reef Light, broadcasted a radio message that walD clearly picked up over ten miles away. This was the first time in history that this feat has been accomplished and was the result of several weeks of careful preparation by four civilian engineers. BRITISH Warships of the home fleet are painted dark grey and those of the Meditenanean Squadron are painted light grey. The ships on the China Station mostly cruisers and sloops, have white hulls and grey upperworks. THAT only one German Submarine saw service from the beginning of the World War to the end of the war. This was the " Lucky U- 19". She was surrendered to the British at the end of the war. THAT Japanese Battleships and Aircraft are named after Japanese Provinces and mountains; their Cruis­ers are named after winds, trees, flow­ers and fruits.
