Stowaway Pup on Navy Ship Gets Indefinite Shore Leave By OLEN CLEMENTS TOKYO \ft>— A fuzzy little puppy with a waggly tail stowed away on the U. S. Navy's famed aircraft carrier Valley Forge one rainy night at Yokosuka and camej Jirough his adventure with the prizes and privileges of an old seadog. The Navy told the pup's tale today: Somehow the little pooch evaded the officer of the deck and the gangway watch and shivered for liouis In a dark corner of the hangar deck. A sympathetic bluejacket whisked him below. After stowing a ration of warm milk, the popped- out pup fell asleep. His troubles began the next dfiy. Not long after the bugler had roused the flattop's 3,000-man-and- a-dog crew, the ship put out for sea, bound for Korea and the fighting. Undetermined Origin The puppy, of Oriental but otherwise undetermined origin, presented a problem all right. Quarantine regulations prohibit the transportation of pets picked up in a foreign port. While the executive office pondered, the bluejackets went to work. They "enlisted" the pup in naval service, dressed him in a trim, zip-front blue jumper topped with Korean- tmd U. N. cnmp;\ign •ibbons, photographed him and provided an identification curd with the name Coddy. 'Coddy cut a fine figure of a sailor but his tour aboard the carrier was short-lived. That dog-gone exec found a sailor who was flying to Japan on emergency leave. So typewritten orders were cut for Coddy. The sailor and pup boarded a plane and roared down the flight deck. Coddy made history. He was the first dog to wing off the Valley Forge. The future looks rosy for Coddy the combat veteran. His orders assigning him to every sailor's dream of shore duty specified that he should be treated in a manner befitting a month-old puppy with a tour of Korean sea duty and carrier flight time. » In short, Coddy must be coddled.
