Transcript U. S. S. Hou8ton- 6- 10- 38---;- 900. ". ? In the cities of Egypt there flour­ishes a system of five scales of prices. One for Egyptians. A second, 10 per cent higher, for all the Arabic- speak­ing peoples. A third, 100 per cent higher, for the black, brown or yel­low folk who do not speak Arabic. A fourth, 500 per cent higher, for Europeans. And the fifth, unhamper­ed by any limit and guaged only by the gullibility of the buyer, for tour­ist's from the United States. ? The San Pedro- Long Beach break­water is 12,500 feet long and exceeds anything of its kind in the world. ! ! ! ? The U. S. S. Manley on Dec. 6, 1937, broke the record in making a quick passage through the Panama Canal. She was on the Pacific side of the Canal when she received orders to transit the Canal with all possible speed in order to investigate a gun runner off the coast of Honduras. ? The Gulf Coast line of the United States is nearly 300 miles longer than the Pacific Coast line. ! ! ! ? As the initial step in tieing Alaska with the Aleutian Islands into our scheme of Pacific defence, the Navy Department formally established an air base at Sitka, Alaska on June 1, 1938. Twin screwed and oil powered, the 341 foot McCall is the first naval ship to be built by a pri­vate company since 1921. She was constructed in the San Francisco yards of the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation, Ltd. The new navy destroyer McCall made 42 knots - said to be the fastest speed ever turned out by a naval craft - in preliminary ac­ceptance tests completed Monday, it was learned the other day. The speed, equal to 47 land miles per hour, was reported maintained for four hours in a test run outside the Golden Gate. Speci­fication speed for the 1500- ton dis­placement vessel is 38% knots per hour. ,. .... THE BLUE BONNET -------- 11 Speed Record Set By U. S. Destroyer The groom at present is enjoying an 18 day leave of ab­sence from his ship's duties. The en­tire ship's personnel wish to extend him and his bride congratulations and the best of luck. Ensign Johnson Married On June fifth at half after eight in the evening, Ensign B. Johnson of this vessel was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Hough­ten of Long Beach, California, in a ceremony which was performed at St. Mathew's Church of Long Beach. Preliminary tests for the McCall were made by Bethlehem of­ficials under the supervision of Alfred S. Gunn, general manager. She was 15 months in building. .. Ii. " I see in the papers that a guy ate six dozen pancakes." " Oh, how waffle!" Then there was the young lady who had water on the knee, so the doctor told her to wear pumps. I Don't Get It 4----- Sivak Starts Novel Word has trickled from the forward scuttlebutt that our fa­mous novelist and poet, Herr Sivak, is starting to write an epic novel. The Ship's Reporter went to inter­view the maestro on the subject, and found him surrounded by a sheet of paper, on which he was preparing to write, but he kindly consented to pause long enough to sketch out the plot roughly. The novel deals with the Ah family, old man Ah Right; his wife, Ah Rong; his daughters, Ah Hoy ( named in honor of her uncle, a seafaring man), Ah Chu, Ah Doo, Ah Can, Ah Nother, and the last, Ah Thru. It is tragic in tone, dealing with the death of the eldest daughter, who drowns trying to swim to an American warship one night when she thinks the quartermaster is calling her. Even as the yellow waters of the Whangpoo close over her she still hears him calling " Boat Ah Hoy! Boat Ah Hoy!" - But she cannot answer. The second daughter, Ah Chu, also meets an untimely end. She goes to work for an English family and has a nervo\: s breakdown when they all contract ' Hay- fever', and she hears them calling " Ah Chu!", Ah Chu!" from all corners of the house. That is as far as the author has carried his plot but we think that is quite far enough. The printer is interested in finding copies of the first two Blue Bonnets, not of the present series, but the issues put out in China previously. There were only two editions printed. Anyone who has, or knows the whereabouts of a copy of these two, please let the printer know. Sea: Your ister was shocked by the way I kissed you. She: Oh, did she peek? Sea: 0, I showed her. An old maid is too bad. Too bad is a rotten egg. Rotten eggs are foo. Foo is nothing. Therefore: an old maid is an egg that never gets mar­ried or nothing. 1st Seagull: My, but you certainly made that sailor mad this morning. 2nd Seagull: Yes, he was ready to fight at the drop on the hat. The best man was Ens. Ray Thompson and maid of honor, Miss Jeanne Houghten. Bridesmaids were Mrs. A. Ageton, Mrs. H. Pool, Mrs. M. Hansen, and Mrs. J. Lewis. The ushers were Ens. D. V. Wengro­vius, Ens. R. W. Meyers, Ens. C. I. Raymond, and E. n. s..... F.. Springer. ? Part of the income of India's Aga Khan, spiritual head of 100,000,000 Ismaelian Mohammedans, comes from the sale of his daily bath water, which is put up in bottles. Faithful Moham­medans believe that it has the powers of healing, and they pay five dollars a bottle for it. .......
