Transcript Partridge, faithful log room Yeo­man has pulled one over on his ship­mates, but not quite fast enough to. get past the sharp ears of one of Ocko's best stooges. The lad went home on leave not long ago, and dur­ing the time he was home did a mid­dle- aisle stunt and an " I do" at the front end of it with a Miss Chamber­lain of Barry, Vermont. Happy Days youngster, and best wishes. * * * * Saw Westfall, CSM, formerly on the Rambler Ship with the ScoFor flag, who is now on the MINNEAPO­LIS; he was on Shore Patrol in San Francisco and sent best wishes to all his friends and shipmates aboard here. * * * * And that reminds us the ScoFor Band that was on the HOUSTON last spring is again with us for the dura­tion of the Presidential Cruise. The leader who was first class when they left us last is now wearing the " buttons" of a Bandmaster and we wish him the best. : Ie :+: * * Well, from the number of GG's seen in Oakland, Frisco and Vallejo the last two weeks it looks as if quite a few of them will write the good wife that they drew small stores this payday, and maybe she'll believe it. * * * * Last week The Editor wrote on ' Noblesse Oblige', and on Thursday afternoon we witnessed a striking example of just what he was talking about. On the fo'c's'le a seaman's flat hat blew off, rolled down the deck. An officer neatly speared it and returned the offending hat to the Owner, carried on with his duties without a flicker of an eyelash. * * * * Last Monday night was the even­ing when one of the HOUSTON'S recently departed officers came aboard for the evening. It was Lieut. ( jg) E. C. Long and Mrs Long. Sure was THE BLUE BONNET nice to see that big smile again. We understood that Mr. Long is waiting for a ship for the trip to Manila, P. 1. * * * * I guess Ocko has said enough for this week, and most likely my part­ner in crime has a lot of · things he wants to tell you about in that broad­cast of his, so - - - So Long. NEW MOVIE MACHINES INSTALLED Two new machines were received aboard week ago last Friday. The electricians had to put out a lot of man hours for their installation. The machines are RCA Photophone, 30 ampere arclight for the projector, and were made by the International Projector Corp" New York. N. Y. A new slide projector has been pur­chased for the projection of songs on the screen, so that all hands may see and follow the music at the smokers of the future. Also a public address system, which may be set up in any part of the ship for smokers or any other occasion. This consists of two microphones and two loud speakers. Ship's Welfare has purchased $ 20.00 worth of new records, making a total of one hundred twenty pieces of re­corded music now on board. NAUTICAL QUESTIONAIRE What is meant by the following? 1.

MANNING THE RAIL " Manning the, rail and cheering ship is a very old custom. A man­uscript written by Dr. Roger Mar­becke in 1596, at the time of the English Cadiz Exposition, states, These hailings then are in this order. When after a day's absence or more, as occasion serveth, they come near to the Lord Admirel, and yet not too near, but of such seasonable distance as they may not endanger themselves of going foul of one another; they presently man the ship and place everyone of their companies both upon the upper and midd Ie deck and also upon the waist and shrouds and elsewhere to get the most advantage they can to make the bravest show and appear the greatest number. Then the masters and mates of the ships immediately join the sound­ing of their whistles in a pretty loud tunable manner, all the com­pany shaking their hands, hats and caps, give a marvelous shout, with as much mirth and rejoicing as they can, which consisting of so many loud, strong and variable voi­ces maketh such a sounding echo and pleasant report in the air, as delighteth very much, and this cer­emony is done three times inter­changeable answered by the Lord Admiral".
