THE MASTHEAD,  SATURDAY, AUGUST 12,  1944           PAGE 3














     SATuORS  take  notice!  This  is
   by  way  of  explanation  concerning
   about  fifteen  bus  loads  of  beauti-
   ful  civilians  who  were  seen  on the
   Island,  Sunday, August 6,  and also
   to  prove  that  we  do  have  our
   generous  moments.
    The  girls  w e re  prospective
   WAVES  who  were enjoying  a  day
   on  Treasure  Island,  sponsored  by
   the  WAVES  recruiting  office  of
   the  Twelfth  Naval  District.  The
   program  of  the  day  start€d  with
   a  general  meeting  at  1200
   Theatre  No.  1.  The  girls  were
   then  guests  at  Sunday  dinner  _in
   the  Officers'  Mess  followed  by  a
   special  Chapel  service  at  1430.
     One  interested  bluejacket  who
   sang  for  the  Chapel  service  said
   that  he  had  never  seen  so  much
   color  in  that  building  since  its
   dedication.  It  might  almost  have
   been  a  study  in  hats,  so  varied
   wern  the  colors,  sizes  and  shapes.
   Under  the  circumstances  we  will
   not  go  further  into  the  subject  of
   today's  fashions.
    The  last feature  of  a  very  busy
   day  was  the  program  held
   Theatre  No.  2  at  1600.  Highlight
   of the  affair was  an  address  given
   by  Mrs.  Chester  Nimitz  on  the
   value of  the  service  being  render
   ed  by  WAVES  today.  Captain
   R.  W. Cary welcomed the girls and
   music  was  provided  by the  Chapel
   mixed  quartet  and  the  Treasure
