Vol. V, No. 12 U. S. Naval Operating Base, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Saturday, 13 May 195%


NEW METHOD SLATED TO CLASSIFY JOBS FOR ALL NAVY EM
By Armed Forces Press Service
A major change in classifying all Navy enlisted personnel as to their job qualifications gets underway July 1 when Navy job classifications and codes presently assigned will be replaced by new ones.
Principal change is in assigning primary classifications. Under the revised classification program, every enlisted person must be given a personal interview.
"The purpose of this interview is to determine the person's highest level of Navy job skill within his rate or rating. It must be understood that the duties represent his highest level of skill within his rate or rating", according to BuPers Circ. Ltr. 34-50 NDB, 15 March 1950).
Reclassification must be completed by October 1.

SECOND NSLI DIVVY
SEEN IN 1951

Running well ahead of schedule in payment of the big NSLI dividend, VA is looking ahead to payment of a second dividend from accumulated surplus in 1951. This will cover the three year period 1948 to 1951; after that distribution it is believed that insurance stablization will be so complete that future dividends, if any, will be paid on an annual basis. But expired or lapsed policies will not share in future distribution of surplus; only those policies extending beyond the 1948 anniversary date will get a share in 1951. Amount of dividend will depend on death rate for the period. It has been pointed out that a severe epidemic with high mortality could quickly deplete the surplus. Average or low mortality rate would indicate a cut of something near $200 for each $10,000 policy during the three-year period.

O'ER THE TEA CUPS
By Betty Radcliffe
Mrs. DeYoung told me that she has some extra pie tins, etc. left over from the Carnival Cake Booth. Maybe you had better take inventory in your pantry and see if you are missing any of your baking utensils. If you left a pie tin at the cake booth and haven't picked it up yet, please call Mrs. DeYoung at 773.
On Friday, May 6 the Junior and Senior Home Room, under the sponsorship of the School Board, held a Barn Dance at the Newtown Lyceum. The dance was quite a success and the general consensus is that more barn dances would be just as popular and successful.
Tonite at the Officer's Club there will be a barn dance, sort of a rehearsal for the Big Barn Dance to come the 29th of this month. Mrs. Barbara Broughton will be doing the calling.
Miss Peggy Pitts, from St. Augustine, Florida is visiting CHMACH and Mrs. F. A. Wheeler. Miss Pitts has been here aboui two weeks and has been quite active in bowling, tennis and horseback riding. Sincerely hope you enjoy your visit, Miss Pitts.
The 4th Annual NOB School picnic and Field Day was quite an event. Someone said to me that .t ,Was like a 3 ring circus . . . and I am inclined to agree with them ... there certainly was lots to see.
Mr. and Mrs. H. P. McNeal entertained with a cocktail party Tuesday May 9th at the Officers' Club.
There is a rumor making the rounds that a Minstrel Show has been considered for sometime in the near future. I, for one, am in favor of it and know, from experience, that they are fun to do and quite a pleasure to watch. I certainly hope someone will start the ball rolling and put on a Minstrel Show. It seems that a certain gentleman from NAS has had a lot of experience along this line and he could organize and put on a show. There must be a lot of local talent that would be thrilled to take part in a Minstrel. How about it?
See ya' later.

I Boy Scout

Affairs
By Jerry J. Dickson
Hi, friends! Here's an item that
may interest you. The Scout Troop received a box this week that contained our Troop Flag, Community Strips and a few other
odds and ends.
I'm sure that we can tenatively
set the date for the Court of Honor on Friday, the 26th of May. We . would like all of you scouters to
try and set aside that day and attend it. I will let you know for sure in the column next week, when
the Court of Honor will be held.
As you know, our special in
terest speaker last night was LT J. E. Herman. He gave us many fine points on camping in preparation for our next overnight hike There wasn't a scout or scouter present who didn't know one thing for certain . . . "Yours Truly" is much better prepared to take the troop out than he was the last two times. Thanks to you, Mr. Herman,
for a swell talk.
Consequently, before I forget, Mr.
"Johnny" Johnson, will be our spe,cial interest speaker next Friday.
At our meeting last night, we
followed our schedule pretty closely. Our meeting was very successful, with few noise makers.
I think we have a pretty good group
of boys to work with now!
We are losing three of them
within the next month, but we have two scouts to take their . places. They just recently turned of
age. I do not recall their names
at this time.
There isn't a boy who was present who doesn't know how to find the North Star, with the aid of the big dipper. I wonder just how many of you scouters can walk out and point to the big dipper
tonight?
All of the eligible scouts are
going out after the astronomy merit badge-including me! Besides being very interesting, you never can tell when it may come
in handy.
I'm glad to see as many of the
boys passing their second class tests as there are. At the rate they are progressing, we won't have a tenderfoot scout left after our
:second Court of Honor!
That's thirty for now folks; see
.you next week!
Drunk-"Shay, call me a cab,
will-ya?"
Bystander-"My good man, I am
a naval officer, not a doorman."
Drunk-"Awright, then call me a
boat, I gotta get home."
The only thing that warms some
wives' hearts is cold cash.


VU-1O NOTES
By C. P. Douglas, PN1
The news within the squadron is conspicious by its absence this week, as the whole column was last week. We were hoping that by missing out on a week a little news might accumulate. No such luck, however. More and more of the personnel attached to this squadron are being ordered to Stateside duty, as is probably the case with all other commands on the Base. At least those who have waited so patiently for housing here in this activity are leaving for new assignments -most of which are expected to be good duty, so they contemplate. I'm told by the old salts that the best duty is that station you just left or the one you're going to. However. I haven't heard any real gripes about VU-10 duty.
At present, various commanding officers of ships in this area are offering excellent opportunities to visit some nice vacation spots in the Caribbean. Oddly enough, not many of the 'brown-baggers' in this activity are partaking of this hospitality. We were fortunate enough to make a recent trip to Kingston, Jamaica, on the USS Algol. Although ships of this type are not structurally suited to pas senger-carrying, we were of the opinion that the comforts aboard that ship were more than adequate. and we thoroughly enjoyed every detail of the trip. One aspect we most enjoyed was thinking of the poor misguided individuals who have at one time or another advised us to take permanent leave from the Navy and enjoy the wholesome freedom of the civilian phase of life. All the time, we were wondering when those people would accumulate sufficient "long green" to sustain them on such a trip. Any of you who have not taken one of these many trips offered should do so at one time or another prior to leaving Gtmo, as ours was one of the most enjoyable weekends we've experienced in many moons.

YOUR MOVIE GUIDE

Dates Are For NAS Movie Lyceum
Tonight-"Not Wanted"-An unprententious film, excellently performed by a cast of characters you proabbly will not recognize. This tells the story of a girl whose child was born out of wedlockthe problems she faced alone, and her eventual happiness with a man of compassion and understanding. Sally Forrest and Keefe Braselle distinguish themselves in the lead roles.
Sunday-"Follow Me Quietly"This is a murder mystery. It concerns a killer known only as "the Judge" who strikes on rainy nights

Girl Scout Notes


By Adeline Irwin
Once again the Newtown Lyceum rang with the voices of the Girl Scouts. Friday, May 5, was the first time in several weeks that we used the Lyceum. It was also, the first time in many a meeting that the girls just played games and had fun.
The troop is going to be separated into Patrols with Mrs. Frances Skinner and Mrs. Mildred Erwin leading one group. Their group will consist of two patrols. The third group will be led by Mrs. Joyce Glaser and yours truly.
Tentative plans are being formulated for a "Gypsy Stew" cookout for Friday May 19th. Next week we will give you all the information concerning this party. We also hope to have an instructor in Star Finding attend this party to help the girls earn their badge.
There will be a Girl Scout (Intermediate) Mother, get together. Tuesday May 16th, at 1400 at the residence of Mrs. Wray. It is important that all the mothers who are not leaving in June or before, attend this meeting.
All you good people will be hearing a lot about our scouts, as they will be doing lots of badge work and will be having mucho fun, all through the summer. So long for now, be seeing you in the Scout column next week.

TEEN-AGE ROUNDUP
By Ramona Moses
The benefit square dance was a big success; enough money was collected to take care of the JuniorSenior banquet. The parents friends, and Teen-Agers all had a wonderful time together.
Pete Broughton had his appendix removed last Monday, sorry Pete we miss you and we all wish you a speedy recovery.
Welcome back to school Dr. Nelson.
The NOB High School boys played ball with the Caimanera boys at Bouqueron Saturday afternoon. The Caimanera boys won with a close score of nineteen to eighteen.
Field Day went of with a bang. Parents and students enjoyed the day together. The seventh grade did alright winning thirteen medals. Dixie Adair from the eighth grade won 5 medals; Dixie is quite an athlete.
Sorry to hear of your accident Neil Horner, you better watch those flying base balls.
Adios til next week.

and then leaves notes saying that he kills his victims because they are evil. It's up to you to see how the police who are baffled throughout most of the picture finally solve the case. Accompanying shorts are "Daredevils on Ice" and "Fight For Better Schools", the former a sports short and the latter a March of Time release.
Monday-"Red Danube"-This is a fairly up-to-date story of an officer (Walter Pidgeon) in the British Army who is transferred to Vienna along with his personal staff. He is strictly regulation in his job which deals with returning Russian citizens who have fled to the British zone, until he learns not to trust the Russians. When he learns this he helps hide the Russian ballet dancer (Janet Leigh) who is in love with his aide (Peter Lawford) and whom he tried earlier to return to the Russians. Cast includes Ethel Barrymoore.
Tuesday-"Sands of Iwo Jima"- The long awaited picture about the Marines and their gallant battles on Tarawa and Iwo Jima finally reaches Gtmo. The story concerns a tough Marine Sergeant, John Stryker (John Wayne) who has the job of training recruits for combat. The film follows one such unit through the aforementioned training and battles and ends with the climatic flag raising on Mount Suribachi.
Wednesday - "Adam's Rib" Spencer Tracy and Kathryn Hepburn team up in one of the year's best comedies. It's the old battle of the sexes with the couple as barristers on opposing sides of a case concerning a woman who shoots an errant husband, Judy Holliday, the Broadway star, steals every scene she is in. Cast includes David Wayne, Tom Ewell and Jean Hagen.
Thursday-"The Hasty Heart"
-Adaption of the popular stage play about a dour Scotsman (Richard Todd) convalescing in a British Hospital in Burma who does not know that he only has a few weeks to live. The efforts of his ward-mates to win his friendship constitute the picture. Patricia Neal is excellent in the role of the nurse with Ronald Reagan turning in a nice job as "Yank".
Friday-"Fighting Man of the Plains"--This is the story of a Civil War veteran who became a fugitive after he shot a man he wrongly suspected killed his brother. A detective tracks him down but on their way back the detective is killed in an accident. The fugitive assumes the others identity and because of his sharp shooting ability becomes Marshall of a Kansas town. He is later recognized as the fugitive and narrowly escapes hanging.

O'ER THE TEA CUPS By Betty Radcliffe Mrs. DeYoung told me that she has some extra pie tins, etc. left over from the Carnival Cake Booth. Maybe you had better take inventory in your pantry and see if you are missing any of your baking utensils. If you left a pie tin at the cake booth and haven't picked it up yet, please call Mrs. DeYoung at 773. On Friday, May 6 the Junior and Senior Home Room, under the sponsorship of the School Board, held a Barn Dance at the Newtown Lyceum. The dance was quite a success and the general consensus is that more barn dances would be just as popular and successful. Tonite at the Officer's Club there will be a barn dance, sort of a rehearsal for the Big Barn Dance to come the 29th of this month. Mrs. Barbara Broughton will be doing the calling. Miss Peggy Pitts, from St. Augustine, Florida is visiting CHMACH and Mrs. F. A. Wheeler. Miss Pitts has been here aboul two weeks and has been quite active in bowling, tennis and horseback riding. Sincerely hope you enjoy your visit, Miss Pitts. The 4th Annual NOB School picnic and Field Day was quite an event. Someone said to me that ;t was like a 3 ring circus ...and I am inclined to agree with them .there certainly was lots to see. Mr. and Mrs. H. P. McNeal entertained with a cocktail party Tuesday May 9th at the Officers' Club. There is a rumor making the rounds that a Minstrel Show has been considered for sometime in the near future. I, for one, am in favor of it and know, from experience, that they are fun to do and quite a pleasure to watch. I certainly hope someone will start the ball rolling and put on a Minstrel Show. It seems that a certain gentleman from NAS has had a lot of experience along this line and he could organize and put on a show. There must be a lot of local talent that would be thrilled to take part in a Minstrel. How about it? See ya' later.

uTPag Tree Boy Scout Affairs By Jerry J. Dickson Hi, friends! Here's an item that may interest you. The Scout Troop received a box this week that contained our Troop Flag, Community Strips and a few other odds and ends. I'm sure that we can tenatively set the date for the Court of Honor on Friday, the 26th of May. We would like all of you scouters to try and set aside that day and attend it. I will let you know for sure in the column next week, when the Court of Honor will be held. As you know, our special in terest speaker last night was LT J. E. Herman. He gave us many fine points on camping in preparation for our next overnight hike There wasn't a scout or scouter present who didn't know one thing for certain ..."Yours Truly" is much better prepared to take the troop out than he was the last two times. Thanks to you, Mr. Herman, for a swell talk. Consequently, before I forget, Mr. "Johnny" Johnson, will be our special interest speaker next Friday. At our meeting last night, we followed our schedule pretty closely. Our meeting was very suecessful, with few noise makers. I think we have a pretty good group of boys to work with now! We are losing three of them within the next month, but we have two scouts to take their places. They just recently turned of age. I do not recall their names at this time. There isn't a boy who was present who doesn't know how to find the North Star, with the aid of the big dipper. I wonder just how many of you scouters can walk out and point to the big dipper tonight? All of the eligible scouts are going out after the astronomy merit badge-including me! Besides being very interesting, you never can tell when it may come in handy. I'm glad to see as many of the boys passing their second class tests as there are. At the rate they are progressing, we won't have a tenderfoot scout left after our second Court of Honor! That's thirty for now folks; see you next week! Drunk-"Shay, call me a cab, will-ya?" Bystander-"My good man, I am a naval officer, not a doorman." Drunk-"Awright, then call me a boat, I gotta get home." The only thing that warms some wives' hearts is cold cash. VU-10 NOTES By C. P. Douglas, PN1 The news within the squadron is conspicious by its absence this week, as the whole column was last week. We were hoping that by missing out on a week a little news might accumulate. No such luck, however. More and more of the personnel attached to this squadron are being ordered to Stateside duty, as is probably the case with all other commands on the Base. At least those who have waited so patiently for housing here in this activity are leaving for new assignments -most of which are expected to be good duty, so they contemplate. I'm told by the old salts that the best duty is that station you just left or the one you're going to. However. I haven't heard any real gripes about VU-10 duty. At present, various commanding officers of ships in this area are offering excellent opportunities to visit some nice vacation spots in the Caribbean. Oddly enough, not many of the 'brown-baggers' in this activity are partaking of this hospitality. We were fortunate enough to make a recent trip to Kingston, Jamaica, on the USS Algol. Although ships of this type are not structurally suited to pas senger-carrying, we were of the opinion that the comforts aboard that ship were more than adequate, and we thoroughly enjoyed every detail of the trip. One aspect we most enjoyed was thinking of the poor misguided individuals who have at one time or another advised us to take permanent leave from the Navy and enjoy the wholesome freedom of the civilian phase of life. All the time, we were wondering when those people would accumulate sufficient "long green" to sustain them on such a trip. Any of you who have not taken one of these many trips offered should do so at one time or another prior to leaving Gtmo, as ours was one of the most enjoyable weekends we've experienced in many moons. YOUR MOVIE GUIDE Dates Are For NAS Movie Lyceum Tonight-"Not Wanted"-An unprententious film, excellently performed by a cast of characters you proabbly will not recognize. This tells the story of a girl whose child was born out of wedlockthe problems she faced alone, and her eventual happiness with a man of compassion and understanding. Sally Forrest and Keefe Braselle distinguish themselves in the lead roles. Sunday-"Follow Me Quietly"This is a murder mystery. It concerns a killer known only as "the Judge" who strikes on rainy nights (Continued on Page Four) Notes By Adeline Irwin Once again the Newtown Lyceum rang with the voices of the Girl Scouts. Friday, May 5, was the first time in several weeks that we used the Lyceum. It was also, the first time in many a meeting that the girls just played games and had fun. The troop is going to be separated into Patrols with Mrs. Frances Skinner and Mrs. Mildred Erwin leading one group. Their group will consist of two patrols. The third group will be led by Mrs. Joyce Glaser and yours truly. Tentative plans are being formulated for a "Gypsy Stew" cookout for Friday May 19th. Next week we will give you all the information concerning this party. We also hope to have an instructor in Star Finding attend this party to help the girls earn their badge. There will be a Girl Scout (Intermediate) Mother, get together. Tuesday May 16th, at 1400 at the residence of Mrs. Wray. It is important that all the mothers who are not leaving in June or before, attend this meeting. All you good people will be hearing a lot about our scouts, as they will be doing lots of badge work and will be having mucho fun, all through the summer. So long for now, be seeing you in the Scout column next week. TEEN-AGE ROUNDUP By Ramona Moses The benefit square dance was a big success; enough money was collected to take care of the JuniorSenior ban q u e t. The parents friends, and Teen-Agers all had a wonderful time together. Pete Broughton had his appendix removed last Monday, sorry Pete we miss you and we all wish you a speedy recovery. Welcome back to school Dr. Nelson. The NOB High School boys played ball with the Caimanera boys at Bouqueron Saturday afternoon. The Caimanera boys won with a close score of nineteen to eighteen.

It's up to you to see how the police who are baffled throughout most of the picture finally solve the case. Accompanying shorts are "Daredevils on Ice" and "Fight For Better Schools", the former a sports short and the latter a March of Time release. Monday-"Red Danube"-This is a fairly up-to-date story of an officer (Walter Pidgeon) in the British Army who is transferred to Vienna along with his personal staff. He is strictly regulation in his job which deals with returning Russian citizens who have fled to the British zone, until he learns not to trust the Russians. When he learns this he helps hide the Russian ballet dancer (Janet Leigh) who is in love with his aide (Peter Lawford) and whom he tried earlier to return to the Russians. Cast includes Ethel Barrymoore. Tuesday-"Sands of Iwo Jima"The long awaited picture about the Marines and their gallant battles on Tarawa and Iwo Jima finally reaches Gtmo. The story concerns a tough Marine Sergeant, John Stryker (John Wayne) who has the job of training recruits for combat. The film follows one such unit through the aforementioned training and battles and ends with the climatic flag raising on Mount Suribachi. Wednesday -"Adam's Rib" Spencer Tracy and Kathryn Hepburn team up in one of the year's best comedies. It's the old battle of the sexes with the couple as barristers on opposing sides of a case concerning a woman who shoots an errant husband, Judy Holliday, the Broadway star, steals every scene she is in. Cast includes David Wayne, Tom Ewell and Jean Hagen. Thursday-"The Hasty Heart" -Adaption of the popular stage play about a dour Scotsman (Richard Todd) convalescing in a British Hospital in Burma who does not know that he only has a few weeks to live. The efforts of his ward-mates to win his friendship constitute the picture. Patricia Neal is excellent in the role of the nurse with Ronald Reagan turning in a nice job as "Yank". Friday-"Fighting Man of the Plains"-This is the story of a Civil War veteran who became a fugitive after he shot a man he wrongly suspected killed his brother. A detective tracks him down but on their way back the detective is killed in an accident. The fugitive assumes the others identity and because of his sharp shooting ability becomes Marshall of a Kansas town. He is later recognized as the fugitive and narrowly escapes hanging.
