A request from a subscriber for a number which the operator reports bu£y usually means a second call will be made for the number. If the subscriber makes a second call and the line is still busy the oper= ator’s work has been doubled. Jf the subscriber calls for the number a third time, whether the connection is made or not, the operator’s work has been tripled on this one call. The line may be busy, 1, because some one is using the telephone call ed. 2, because another person on the same party line is usng his tele phone, or 3, when some one else is trying to get the same number the same time you are. Please be considerate of the telephone oprator == she does her work willingly, always courteously mid wonderfully well. SOUTHWESTERN BELL TELEPHONE CO. ***** From Raymond Parrish), i U. S. Myrant, If. Y. City, May 13th.' Editor Little River News: It has been many months since I last wrote to your valuable paper, al most three years I think. I sent you several articles before the war but when Uncle Sam decided to call Kaiser Bill’s bluff, news ite*ws concerning the navy life became strictly taboo. Now that the big show is over and, en couraged with seeing my earlier at tempts in print *1 will try to “bust” in to print again. I am serving on board one of the destroyers that did very efficient duty in convoying the big transports across the pond, much to Fritz’s dismay. The Myrant is one of the best destroyers of her type in the flotilla. No more coaling ship for the men that come to th;3 ship from the battle Vagons, for she’s an oil burn er. In other ships other days the old cry “All hands coal ship,” which meant tffttt some five or six hundred men would turn out in their dirtiest clothes and swing on the busy end of i a coal scoop from early morn till late at night. They still do It on lots of the ships now. But on the destroyers the cry "four hands lead out the fuel hose” means about tmrty minutes work for four men and you never know the ship is taking on "coal” un til its all over with. It gives the men I more* time for other duties and enables J them to keep a neater ship. To show , you the spirit of the navy especially j the destroyer boys, I will give you j some figures from the destroyer's sub- [ scriptions in the fifth liberty loan. The | Myrant with a complement of eighty nine men including officers subscribed ten thousand two Tiundred and fifty dollars making an average of about ! one hundred and fourteen dollars per | man. The U. S. S. Jouett did even J better, with a crew or one hundred arid six men, officers included, she sub scribed fifteen thousand dollars, mak ing an average of one hundred and thirty-six dollars per man. The Pauld ing equaled the Myrant b.ut with a crew of ninety six men. This is only j a few of the hundrecs of the destroy ers e^a battleships. Can anyone won- j 4f.r why Fritz laid down and quit, j Most of us navy boys had an opportun i ity to see where oiir money went in ^ J the liberty loans not very long ago in New York. The U. S. S. Bushnell ar rived there bringing five German sub marines manned by American sailors. Believe me, after seeing one of them a person feels a depth'charge was too good for them for tney certainly are wicked looking craft. They are to be shown at all the seacoast cities along the Atlantic and it is rumored that they are to voyage up the Mississippi [river as far as St. Louis'probably far ther, finally going to the west coast [via the Panama canal. Anyone wish | ing to see something out of the ordi nary, will be more in an repaid to go . and see them while in the Mississippi, j |_ We are at present in Charleston. S.! C., but expect to leave here soon for Key We3t, Fla., where we will hold torpedo and gunnery practice. We are all hoping to get ^ chance to make I liberties in Havana, Cuba, if possible. | We have just returned rrom*C uba but jdid not visit Havana. Usually Cuba for Hatiai likes to tndulgfe in comic opera revolutions every year and we have difficulties in getting liberty there but this year they were too busy list ening to the big scrap and forgot their own troubles. So we were permitted to visit Santiago de Cuba, Manzinilla, Guantamo City and many other cities of great Interest, the most interesting being Santiago de Cuna, with its old fortifications especially the Moro Cas tle. We also visited tl\e famous Blue beards castle and its adjoining neigh bor, Blackbeards Castle. Well dear readers I am sure you are tired of this by now so thanking you for giving me this much atention, I am yours very truly, , Raymond Parrish.
