Cat. e REiddgiteo.. r, Stefan Sivak, Jr., SKic; Associate Editor' W. J . Bannen, Seale; Cartoonist Dear Marie:- Gus. By tha time old Angus MacWheel­base lips this writin' matter in yore mail box, this mighty ship of steel will be a tearin' along threw tha briny at a fast g- allop. They say we're a huntin' for ocean fish but I ' low it'll take a heap of searchin' to fill their skillets if tha moon's not favorin' fishin'. Fish are mighty funny critters. Sometimes a body's gotta hide be­hind a tree to bait his hook, and again they don't have nary a hank­erin' for a sniff at tha hook. May­hap their hunger runs in spells. If these finnies were anything like my brother Alex we'd be pullin' ' em in so fast tha ship would be a quiverin' from stem to tern \ vith their kickin's. One night Alex bedded down with a feelin' a gnawin' at his vitals and a yearnin' to eat a lotta vittles. Ma had clamped down on his supper ra­tions for tha day and held him to a kettleful of mush and a couple gallons of milk. He started havin' dreams of food, him hankerin' so much for a meal. Then tha cold ate into tha marrow of his bones, and he awoke to find tha top covers and half tha mattr~ ss gone. Pa allus said there's more stomach to him than a penfull of fattenin' barrows. Spo e yore Pa's havin' trouble again with tha chinch bugs in tha upper forty. Better tell him to let tha chinch bugs take over. They'll grow skinny and die anyway on tha kind of stuff he raises. Yore still causin' my heart to act up and kick like an onery mule, Marie. Guess I'll never be gettin' over my bashfull ways, but tho my hands are a tremblin' when I'm puttin' out some writin' matter to you it's a heap a difference sittin' beside you in tha old barrel stave hammock at home. Love be of this opinion. I am with great respect VOX POPULI - IN MEMORIAM - With deel) regret it is our sad duty to announce the death of our good friend and shipmate, Ensign Stewart Schick, Jr., U. S. . He pas ed awa)' last Wednesday, 13th of July at the Mare Island aval Hospital. " Stew" was with us when our ship went into the yard When we left he was not aboard Only a short siege of sickness- he an­swered the last call. He was born at Mt. Pocono, Pa. on December 31, 1916..... From the Naval Academy Class of 1937 he reported aboard the HOUSTON June 17,1937, served as " B'" Div. officer and later as a Jr. Officer in the " F" Div. All hands truly regret the pass­ing of such a fine officer and ship­mate. Gentlemen Your very humble servant FRANCIS HOPKINSO Editor's Note- The original of the two bronze seals which now repose so commandingly on the catapult towers of our vessel is the seal for the Board of Admiralty mentioned in the foregoing letter. The latin inscription " Sustentans Et Sustenta­tus" on the bottom of the plaques mean Sustain and Be Sustained. Thirteen star and thirteen bars re­present the thirteen original states. From all reports the songfest before the movies Friday night was a howl­ing success??? We wish to know what you think of the idea of having them every night. Do you like to serenade the F Division crane elec­trician and the movie operator? If so, what songs do you want to sing? If you have some favorites ( besides Flat Foot Floosie) turn them in to the Chaplain. The flag of the United States of America. 4 devices for the Continental Cur­rency. viz The following letter was sent to the President of Congress in 1780: ORIGINATOR OF PLAQUES ON QUARTERDECK ASKS FOR WINE Gentlemen:- It is with great pleasure I under­stand my last device of a seal for the Board of Admiralty has met with your Honour's approbation. I have with great readine s upon several occasions exerted my small abilities in this way for the public service; and, as I flatter myself, to the satis­faction of those I wish to please: A seal for the Board of Treasury. Ornaments, devices and checks for the new bills of exchange on Spain and Holland. A seal for the ship papers of the United States. A seal for the Board of Admiralty. The Boarders, Ornaments and Checks for the new Continental Cur­rency now in the press, - a work of considerable length. A great seal for the United States of America with a reverse. For these services I have as yet made no charge, nor received any recompense. I now submit it to your Honour's consideration whether a quarter cast of the public wine, will not be a proper and a reasonable reward for these labours of fancy and a suitable encouragement to future exertions of the like nature. I sincerely hope your Honour's will
