er at her motors chimed her bells
and pulled herself from Port Op-
timist on Monday night and set
her stem for the deserted island
in the Lytic Lake region.
On board the ship to furnish
the evening's entertainment for
the hardened sailors were three
land lubbers who were first cm-
barking upon their marine career.
The first bit of the night's wild
orgy of initiation into the realm
of Father Neptune came for the
lubber trio when poetry song
and speech (with gestures) were
asked for in the Skipper's Cabin
at Port Optimist. The crew in-
furiated by the program put forth
by the poor gobs set the Tuscoro-
ra motors to roaring and set out
for greener waters.
At Lytle Shore the three begob-
bed gobs were burdened down

the moon rising on the water and

Following the eating orgy
came the initiation into the Nep-
tunic Order for the three sea as-

been oiled down for their coming
trans-Atlantic swim they were in
turn given a touching send-oft by
their brother seamen who wished
them bon voyage. Then sixteen
