Transcript THE BLUE BONNET --------------- 3 Stopped in to see Whitey Wellbourn in the brig the other day. He had re­ceived a leter from John ' Wop' Ple­mental, now BM1c, formerly a fast Cox'n of the 4th Division, who is now aboard the U. S. S. Yorktown. Wop gave us some news of former ship­mates aboard here, among them E­dens, a former seaman of the First Division now a cox'n in the same div­ision on the new carrier. Squashie Fortune, formerly cox'n of the CinC AsiaticFleet barge on the Good Ship Houston, is there also. Bart Fah~ y, one- time quarterdeck bos'nmate, is now permanent appointed chief, and went out on 16 years. Old friend Kin­hartz, who was on the ' AA' five- inch, is now 1PCGunner's Mate, and is do­ing fine in the 6th division of the Yorktown. Many thanks to Wop and to Headlock for this valuable bit of news. ( Anyone hearing of former shipmates kindly drop the dope in the BB Contribution Box in the No. 1 Messing Comp't. We'll be glad to put it into print.) # # What leading P. O. of the ' M' Div­ision was seen in the topside library the morning we got underway from Long Beach, sleeping peacefully (?) with a copy of " How to Win Friends and Influence People" between his feet on the deck? That is some way to influence people; Ocko says a little more of the old rule of ' practice what you preach' could be well used here. # # Stinky Carter is hanging around the vicinity of the Power and Light Shop recently. Could it be that the lad is thinking of changing his rate? We hope not, for Machado would sure­ly miss his big smile in the F Division. # # Squeaky Campbell, former Turret One Sparktrician, was aboard one day last week. Some one told Ocko he came to see ' Bunk- time" Crego, the flashy pappa of the Rat Races. How about it Sea Gull? Well, it looks as if Churchman will be staying aboard the Rambler Ship again for a while. The lad was recent­ly married and not more than ten days after the ceremony what should happen but we go to Mare Island. # # Jenkins, GM1c of the Fourth Div­ision, is about to leave our company and do a cruise in the American Na­val Station at Tutuila, American Sa­moa. He tells me that he will be leav­ing fr:> m Goat Island, San Francisco, some time the last of August. Little Ocko understands that the duty also includes that of Mail Orderly of the Station there. We wish a good ship­mate all the luck in the world .... A happy cruise. # # One of our shipmates received a letter from Obie O'Brien, who was the Second Division bos'n mate for some time on here. He said to tell all hands ' Hello' for him and that he sure did enjoy getting the Blue Bonnets when the mail arrived there at Guam. Obie made chief this year, and we might expect some of those Asiatic cigars if he ever gets back to the Houston. For the benefit of the newcomers aboard, he was the man that made the knot- boards in the port and star­board passageways and OOD booth on the fo'c'sle. # # D. H. Lambert, Cpl. USMC, probab­ly the most popular and best liked Marine the Houston has had aboard in a long time, left the ship last Mon­day afternoon for duty at Mare Is­land. He has a year left to do, and we wish him the best. Little Ocko says we ought to have more men like him in the service, both sailors and mar­ines. # # Some things we'd like to see on the Houston: Bucky Haratyk without a comb or hair brush working on those blond waves he's been developing; Houston staying in port more than one week at a time; one week without a Saturday Inspection; the First Lieu­tenant sleeping in till 0700; Red Cly­mer not sitting on the bitts on the fo'c'sle; Dell Hunter Smith without some mail and hurrying off to deliver it; Baldy Davis with hair like Jim Brady's; Nicolette without dire finan­cial worries; etc; etc; .... Congratulations to Buck Weaver and Ed St. Marie, who received their ap­pointments to Permanent Chief Gun­ner's Mate and Permanent Chief Wa­ter Tender, respectively. Little Ocko says they had it coming to them. # # Also leaving the ship with that cov­eted piece of paper in his right hand, seabag over his shoulder, was Cooley, QM3c, Honorably Discharged after four years of pacing the quarterdeck. Good luck on the U. S. S. Outside fel­ler, we hear you'll need it .... they say jobs are scarce. # # Sivak tell me he' been in far places and seen many things but one he'd like to have seen and did not was Churchman in ' soup and fish' at his wedding. Well, I saw it, and if I had not known the difference I'd have thought he was one of the ' 400'. A swell wedding and party after; ask Buck Weaver. # # Well, there goes Liberty Call, gotta make that boat . . . . see you next week folks ...... t. h. a. n. ks for listening. Challenge Word was brought to the press that the ' M' Division challenges any division aboard ship to a game of baseball while we are here in the yard. They propose any Saturday afternoon as the time. Are you go­ing to let them get away with that you deck hands? Two Aviators Detached Lt. ( jg) A. G. Dibrell was detached last Monday to duty to the Naval Aircraft Factory, Phila­delphia, Pa., whereas Lt. ( jg) P. E. Emrick left the ship on the following day for duty with squadron VS2T aboard the U. S. S. Lexington. The Houston wishes them luck in their new asignments. ...... " There are two kinds of spots a girl likes to see before her eyes, ­Fives and Tens. And while heaven may protect the working girl, I'm wondering what there is to protect the fel­low she's working.
