Transcript THE BLUE BONNET _ 3 your Howdy Shipmates and neighbors; Activity is the word of the day on board. Ever one rushing fore and aft doing their bit to put the Houston in A- I condition and all doing a fine job. Quite a number of men are still arguing about the Louis- Schmeling affair. They still aren't convinced that Louis is the better man and are wait­ing for another chance to show the well known color. 0 odds though. ews travels fast on this man- o­war. One of our planes was reported to have been forced down close to the avy Yard bridge. By careful obser­VOl'S, a few minutes later word was being passed around that one of our planes had dropped under the Bay Bridge and was wrecked. The former was the straight dope, just a case of running low on fuel. Many men ar~ hoping that they will be the lucky one to get one of the new lockers being delivered on board. They sure are easy to look at and the shelves are arranged in the proper manner by which a full bag can be easily placed therein. oticed that most of the crew thinks more of Vallejo than Long Beach. Perhaps it is because every­thing is convenient and one doesn't have so far to ride to get ashore. A taxi right to your door is what they like most. A couple of high spots in Vallejo where it is easy to find most of the crew are the Town Club and Tom's Place. The dancing set can be found at the former while the latter is hab­ited by the quiet members of our crew who care only for a place to sit and talk about some mighty tall tales and sea stories. Our decks in the Hangers would take first place for ball room smooth­ness and shine. One feels as though it is wrong to even step on such glit­tering decks. The aaily working parties are wondering where all the stores are being stowed and when they will stop being delivered. Won't be long now before everthing will be on board and we will be traveling on the high seas once again. Found out that we have some mighty fast talkers around us. Fast and sweet is what the bar girls say about them. Just sit at the bar and they start in at the first drop of refreshment. Sure makes one feel good to hear the yard workmen state that we are the cleanest ship in the yard. We sure are coming along nicely and one is proud to tell that hE' is a member of this ship. ' oticed the new barge being test­ed by the yard workmen. The Fourth Division wonders how it is going to handle when they man the boat crane. Sure is a snappy looking boat. The married men are taking ad­vantage of the coming Holiday liberty by buying seats of the car owners who will make the long trek to Long Beach. This may be their last chance to go down there and see their loved ones. ...... Kiss Amiss " To miss a kiss Is more amiss Than it would be To kiss a miss Provided that The kiss you miss The miss herself \ Vould never miss. But if you try To ki s a miss With whom a kis Would be ami You'd better always Miss the kiss." ..... The next time the government launches a war- wagon, we want to put in a bid. We will drink the champagne and then you can crack us against the side. A TaU One THE Yeoman Playboy, haggard and weary, visited the sick­bay before going on 30 days leave. After an examination, he received the bad news. If he didn't spend his leave in the country and exercise in the sunshine - he was going to wind up behind the eight ball of health. This Yeoman decided to follow the first course. The very next train from the beach found him bound for the beautiful country, far from the evils of the city. To everyone's surprise this Yeoman was back aboard in less than his thirty days. He beamed on the doctor in the ick- bay. " Sir", he said as he stood on his sturdy legs, " I really did it this time. I had enough exercise on this trip to last me a life time." " Splendid", enthused the doctor. " I'm very happy to know that." " Yes, Sir," the Yeoman went on, " I stopped at a farm far away up in the lllinois coal hills; a farm that belonged to a farmer named Hayseed. The old boy wa a bug on hunting:' " Great sport, hunting," the doctor said. " And how did you find the chase?" " Fifty- fifty," the Yeoman said, " I chased his daughter for al­most three we:: ks - and the old man chased me for five hundred miles!" Mabel made an angel cake For her darling- Harry's sake. " Harry. you a piece mu t take!" This he meant. Harry ate it, ever crumb, Then he heard the angels hum, Calling softly, " Harry come." Harry went. Judge ( to prisoner): " When birthday? " o reply. " I ay, when i your birthday?" Prisoner ( sullenly); " What do you care, you ain't gonna give me noth­ing."
