Transcript I'll have to take the blame for this one all myself, due to the fact that it was I who talked the Editor out of a paper on Friday, keeping it till Mon­day to be put out. Anyhow, we have got some more dope. * * * * Who were the Machinist's Mate Second and Fireman First who were playing tid~ ly- wir. ks on the floor of the former's home? I can tell you, and there was more to it than that, but I can't find the slip it was written on. They were Si Pierce and Bulla of the ' A' Division anyhow. Now the story can be told! ! ! * * * * Francis Marion Viskovich, ' Whiskey' to you, is back on the Rambler Ship after thirty days leave in the home town of Hoboken, N. J. From the smile on his face we think he's glad to be back too. * '" '" '" Among the news of former ship­mates comes the word that H. J. Rey­nolds, SC3c, has shipped over and is now a hash- slinger on the new Wich­ita. Charlie Chay, Slc, is on the Boise. Morris Lee, SM3c, is on a tin can in San Diego. Vendetti, CCStd, is ship­ped over and on forty- five days leave. Last heard from in Las Vegas, N. M. We hope Van gets a good billet. * * * * Recent change in Ship's Service Personnel finds Tommy De Bri, Ylc, who replaced Osborne, Y2c, as Book­keeper and office man at the Ship's Service Store. That is a good job for Tom and all hands are glad to see him get it. * ' 1 * * Some more dope on the Chief Cook and Bottlewasher has it that when­ever the Agony Box ( radio) in the Hackies messroom gets going on jit­terbug music, the Commissary Stew­ard takes off in the form of a hula dancer and puts on a real show for the boys. Well, he can do it. THE BLUE BONNET What happened to the Third Div­ision Party that was to have celebra­ted the ' E' on the side of Turret Three ? ? ? Some say one of the tur­ret strikers named Gustafson had a celebration in company of a pair of Siamese Twins the night before, but that ought not to have affected the whole division .... or did it? * * * * Ocko has really been slippin' the past while. Here myoId friend Mc­Clure of the second division has been over on the Relief to have an appen­dix operation and I didn't even know he was sick. Well, sure glad to see you're on the road to health again Mac. That's a good reason for some leave there lad..'" '" . Notice was in the local papers that the HOUSTON will be in this port for the coming holidays while the rest of the Cruisers go to San Fran­cisco, and can't say that I am at all sorry. In fact, there have been no end of lads on the Rambler Ship that thank the Powers That Be for the boon of staying at home more than a month at a time. Well, it does look good to see Long Beach in place of some strange port once in a while. Of course, down deep everyone of the Golden Grainers is proud to have been on the Floating White House the last cruise . . even if he won't admit it. '" * * * Steve Sivak, SKlc, has been tak­ing a rest cure in the sick bay, not that we think there is anything wrong with the lad, except possibly a bad case of love- sickness. Steve says that is not true but we think it must be something like that. The two weeks he was on leave sort of unnerved the man and he can't get over the fact that he don't rate every night liberty. * * * * Two of , our shipmates made the coveted ' buttons' the past week, but all the offices where Ocko gets a lot of his dope are closed and so we'll print their names next issue. * * * * Rumor has it that John Pringle Sharp is about to do one of those middle- aisle stunts. We do not print this as the gospel truth for it was told to us by the Navigator's Yeo­man and so. . . . we lay the blame on Pipp. That is the story and I'm stuck with it. Page Three FLAG DIRT What Yeoman Third of the Flag Office has turned to merely writing poetry? It seems that recently he has been upset for some unknown reason, but I'll bet there is a girl or ex- girl friend mixed up somewhere. This poem was found on his desk: Honey- child, I know you're true; I know you wouldn't cheat - not you, Loving me the way you do- Yeh! loving me, and half the crew. Just what did happen Eustace, now come clean? * * * * Last Tuesday several of the boys gathered in No. 1 Messing Compart­ment. What were the results? Seems that the strikers are quite sure of that crow especially since they start giving orders to junior seamen. Whats the dope Willard, did you or did you not? •• * • What kind of rigging was that you were all decked out in on the beach the other night Gabby? They shore looked like jitterbug duds to me. Light green jacket, loud shirt, short trousers ( or were they knee pants) with those bright colored barber pole socks. Yeh! Its jitterbug time. * * * * Thats all folks, ( an' Gabby, I do mean you). DiJ you know that Fordemwalt, Gunner's Mate of the Post Office is now a member of the time honored group of Golden Grainers? ? Well, its a fact and its also said that the date is set for Jimmie Springer of the Supply Office to do a double ring ceremony. Well, we do wish these lads all the luck in the world, provided BuNav and other things that govern the life of Ye Olde Bluejacket don't interfere too much. * * * * Then there was a Machinist's Mate back aft that told me he heard that last week the Commissary Steward came in the galley. Tasting of some of the stuff in the coppers he re­marked to Churchman, SClc, " A little more salt and this will really be good soup." " Soup, Hell, that's coffee" said Church. We'd never have believed it Barney. ( Continued on page 4)
