The pollywogs held (heir own court and tried the vcrious shellbacks for numerous and sundry offenses. D. N. KNOLL and world renowned orclor L. E. Scott were prosecution attorneys. This duo was victorious in some spectcculor judicial encounters. Before Justice R. G. WALLACE in ihe pollywogs ' final case, which was against shellbcck leader C. W. ROCKETT, SCOTT proved to be an oraticcl wizard as he brought a convic- tion against ROCKETT despite the efforts of ROCKETT ' s shrewd, crafty defense attorney P. H. TEETER. The pollywogs meted out justice in a very wet fashion. But Ihe shellbacks were io have iheir day, and what a day it would be !

The morning of Saturday, 28 July 1956 dawned bright clear and very warm. It was to be an eventful and exceptionally difficult day for two-hundred and eleven pollywogs. The pollywogs were con- verted to shellbccks in production line fashion. t the bar of justice C. W. ROCKETT accepted pleas of guilty to the charges against each pollywog end a SDng to go along with it as D. W. SMITH administered shock treatments. On all fours pollywogs submitted to water hoses, paddles of all sizes and shapes, a tunnel of rather delightful garbage, a casket of polluted water, kissing the royal baby, and a bath in a pool of fresh running sea water seasoned with some three-week old garbage. Besides this, for some select few, such as R. G. WALLACE, D. KNOLL, and L. E. SCOTT, there was a special detention pen with hand cuffs and all. After the day was over and the ship was cleaned up there was not one pollywog left aboard the HAMNER. We were two-hundred and thirty-four Shellbacks strong. The air was filled with Sweet Music Garramone, Mr. Phillips, Mr. Schultz, Mr. Smithpeter Mr. Paine, Betker, Ainsworth, Smalley
