Grewenow Chaplain Corps, USNR Back in^he troublesome days of 1794, when a Navy for the new-born nation was being established, three ships shoved off to defend the liberty so dearly won in 1776. On one ship, the “Constellation,” was a man whose primary duty was not to fight, but to be spiritual leader among fighting men. He was Chaplain William Austin, first chaplain aboard the newly-established Navy of the United States of America. Since that time chaplains have been aboard ship and station, manning the “spiritual” sta tions assigned them. That religion has always had a place in the Navy is evidenced by sev eral articles in Navy Regulations. That men in the Navy are encouraged in the nurture and expression of their religious life is evidenced in the Blue Jackets Manual. Full est possible oppoi’tunity for the performance of and the attendance at Divine Worship, even under the most trying circumstances, is of fered by the Commanding Officers of ship or station. A far-flung Chaplain’s Corps is maintained to preach and teach, to counsel with men on morale, moral, and spiritual problems. Here on our good ship “PFS” men of the Hebrew, Catholic, and Protestant faiths have splendid facilities for the worship of Al mighty God. The Chaplain’s office maintains an “open-door” policy. In order that Cadets may become acquainted with the Chaplain and may discuss with him their problems, the Chaplain will be in his office each Monday and Wednesday until 1800. Your spiritual life has a place in the Navy. Maintain that place for it. Guard it jealously! Personnel Changes The following four officers have been de tached from this station during the past week: Lt, Richard King is reporting to ComAirPorce, Atlantic Fleet, and Lt. (jg) Vaino A. Nelimark to USNFPS, University of South Carolina, Columbia, S. C. Transferred to USNFPS at St, Olafs College, Northfield, Minnesota, is Lt, (jg) Daniel P. Rase and to USN Prepara tory School, University of Texas, Austin, Texas, is Lt. (jg) Ralph A. O’Connell. Two officers have reported aboard: Lt. Ed win S. Fisher from BuAer, who is to be hous ing officer, and Lt. (jg) Francis B. Evans from USNANS, Hollywood, Florida, who will be connected with the Academic Department. On The Lighter Side... It Can’t Happen Here “May I kiss you?” the hesitant cadet asked. Then he asked her the same thing again. “Hey,” he said, “are you deaf?” “No,” she said, “are you paralyzed?” No Better Advice Needed Daughter: “I can’t marry him, mother. He is an atheist and does not belive in hell.” Mother: “Marry him, my dear; between us we will convince him that he is wrong.” She’ll Learn Sailor: “Gosh, you say you’ve never been •out with a sailor!—Swell, where will I meet you, baby?” Girl: “Meet me at 2100 on the starboard side of pier 7.” * Mary: “What wartime job are you doing, dear?” Jane: “Trying to land an Ensign.” ❖ ^ Hs Chaplain: “Which of the parables do you like best?” Seaman: “The one where somebody loafs and fishes.” ^ And then there was the girl who dated a sailor and found he was A-W-O-L-F. ^ ^ ❖ In Complete Agreement There’s nothing like wholehearted agree- ment. From the Great Lakes, Illinois, Naval Training Station comes this story. . . . Seems that an officer on inspection administered a stern rebuke to a bluejacket whose room waS in very bad shape. Solemnly the bluejacket nodded in agreement to everything the officer said. And when the officer wound up his tirade, the bluejacket nodded vigorously and said: “A veritable pig sty, sir.
