By George J. 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. A veritable
pig sty.”
