The opening to Chapter I:


"TALK about the tower of Babel " said Midshipman Jack Cleaver, laughingly.

His pal, Lee Ferris, tossed his red head and drummed his heels.

"Bedlam, you mean," he corrected. " Bedlam let loose ; only more so ! Does the noise disturb your lucubrations, Jackie darling ? Shurrup, you ungodly roysterers, and let Jack get on with his letter."

"Letter be blowed," cried Midshipman Mountbarrel, the dandy of the gunroom, placing a battered record into the jaws of a remorseless phonograph. " Get on with it, Jack ! The girl won't know the difference if you spell sideways or upside-down. There's only one ' v ' in ' loving,' " he added kindly.

"Ass!" answered Jack. "This is a letter to the brother, asking for a supply of tin ! We don't all write letters to girls, let me tell you, Master Oswald Alexis Christopher Ford Mountbarrel!"

Midshipman O. A. C. F, Mountbarrel promptly hurled the gunroom cushion at Jack's head. Jack caught it deftly, and shoved it behind him.
