The hair on the slightly bald head stood up like the bristles on a worn-out brush. "Dave! You finished yet?" "Thirty more minutes, skipper." The face went away. Dave said, "He wants to go see -some old babe at the Continental illotel." I The (ace reappeared quickly. .'"That's not true. I'm not going i anywhere. How much longer is lit going to lake?" "Twenty-seven more minutes. iCaptain." "Who's. that down there with lyou?" 1 "Friends." "Where's Gary?" . "He said you gave him special (liberty." 1 "I didn't tell him that." The face wenl away. "I feel sorry for you," Bert said, '"having a crazy captain Jihc that." "You haven't seen anything. The day we came in here Ihe lead ship sent us a message that we were in a mine field, and the captain said 'Aw, we're just drawing six fee'. of water and the mines are an(^ chored at eight teet. 1 I' think he joined to gel away from his wife.' "Maybe she beats him," Berl said. 'Too bad you got stuck in on it. Try it now." Dave started the generator. K worked, and shouts went up from various parts of the ship. The face he portholes are blacked out." We went up Ihe ladder. The :aptain slood aside for'us to pass. "Captain, I'd like to make you jcquainted with two of my buddies. Bert Martin and Don Meadows." 'T'HE captain shook hands with us. He was a full lieutenant, mcdium-siyed, red-faced, with pale blue eyes; his khaki blouse vas much too long tor him and made him look shorter than he was. He grinned al! the lime, alkcd with some difficulty (ap- parcnlly.his teeth did not fit properly), and frequently made a small rolling laugh. "What ship ar« you on?** "None, sir," .Bert said. "We iusl got here lodaj, to the replacement pool." He looked for,our ratings, and 'ound nothing because Bert's blouse was of! and my peacoat was on. "You're a motor-mac? he sajd to Bert. "Nossir. Signalman, third class.' He laughed. "Where'd you learn Diesels?" "In school, sir'." "That's >a good combination Most signalmen can't plug in !. blinker." He nodded to me. "How about you?" "He's a bright boy," Dave said "He's got a photographic mind." "Would you bolh like a quick lour of the ship?" "Yessir," Bert said. "Let mi wash and get my blouse." The lour look Iwlo hours and wa cut short when Bert finally lookei at his walch and said, "Captain our ride is due at the port gale ii 15 minutes." Dave wcnl with us to the gang way. "If you'll come back tomor row," Dave S3i<i, "I'll have lib erty." Bert said, "I won't come bac 1 tomorrow. You can set your prop al 42 and find us in Pool 9.

Wlien we had climbed the hill vertooking the nest of I-CI's, we eard the G. Q. siren. We got oft iie road and stood on a huge slab f rock. "The jerries know that onvoy got in today," Bert said. We conic! not see a light any- here,.but the hulls of ships were . dimly visible. Ten rninulcs passed without another sound. Then we leard the big guns begin, shore and naval, sending up a flak pat- ern by radar. A minute later we could hear the planes dive.

Bert said, loud ignin. He began to laugh. He slopped quickly. "They got some- hing; tanker, I believe." We could sec a great column of black smoke. The firing slopped, except the dis- ant sound of'Dritish pom-potns. 3ert looked down at rnc. "Get up, x>y. Your trouble is you're too scared to sec the beauty and the glory ot that maneuver. I'll swear you're while as an A-rab veil." I wouldn't speak to him all the way to the barracks; but when we were there, and in our bunks, le won me over with, "I feel sorry for Dave under that sea lord Yosef, don't you?" "Yes, I do," I said. The next day at 2 o'clock we had a message to report immediately to the Personnel Office. We reported to a lieutenant who took our names and turned around to a lieutenant, junior grade, and said, ''Here's Martin and Meadows." The lieutenant picked up our service records and looked at them. "We had you two slated for base personnel because you've got top marks. But we're going to go ahead and send you aboard, because the captain came in personally and asked for you. Let me give you a piece of advice: when you go over ouf heads like this trying to get a special assignment you usually end up with the little end of the horn. You're now under the command.of LCI-003.
