FEMALE BELLBOYS BEGIN WORK IN WOMEN'S HOTEL TOOK DAILY NAPS IN DUG SUIT, Gunner's Mate on Ship of War Had a Frolicsome Time for Five Days. CHIEF GUNNER SUSPICIOUS. Work "ot Advancing, He Slipped Overboard to Investigate and- Found the Mate Asleep. San Francisco. June 23. Queer yarns trs) told about men who wear the uniform of a rallor In the service cf Uncle Sam. but perhaps the queerest Is one told of Gun ner's Mate Johnson, a big Swede, on board a ship of war that frequently visits San Francisco. Johnson Is a convivial soul and fond of his grog. He Is also n good sailor, but shines as a diver. A short time ago. while his ship was anchored near Mare Island, It became necessary to send Johnson down to take off some of the growth from the hull. Ills first dive lasted about an hour. When he came up he told the executive officer It wouid take about a week to clean the ship's bottom. He was given the task, and every day at 9 o'clock, clad In rub ber suit and helmet, he slipped over the ship's side. At meal time he came up, had his meal and then went down again, remaining until meal time came again For five days Johnson kept this up, and tlcn the chief gunner grew suspicious About 3 o'clock one afternoon he ordered a. second diver's suit out. This he donhtd and went overboard. He came up In about ten minutes, and so did Johr.ron When the suits were rembved the gunner or dered Johnson before the captain What th latter said to him could not be heard. but at the close of the Interview Johnson saluted and walked forward The explanation came next day, when the gunner told a fellow-officer that John son, who had been given every nlqht ashore, spent t!-e time roistering about, then came aboard, donned the helmet and suit and slipped over the sldi. ostenslbly to clean the ship's bottom, but really to sleep The gunner's sufpIclon were aroused when he noticed that the air bubbles that always appear on the surface over a direr (Id not vary a foot while Johnson was down. When he Investigated he found Johr.son hinging like a huge barnacle to the side of the ship. Ills arms were dan gling In the water, and his reclining por tion was maintained by the aid of his sig nal lines, one of which he had passed around his shoulders and the other about his feet.
