2nd Anniversary

At approximately frame 140 on the port side of the ship is a well visited spot known as the Ship Store.   Here, daily, popular Halsey E. Watson hands out bargain after bargain. While Watson never uses high pressure selling methods it was reported that one man looking for change for a quarter, walked away with 4 tubes of toothpaste, a lighter, two pipes, a razor, 3 cigars, 6 cakes of P&G, a watch and three rolls of LifeSavers!

A recent article in Fortune featured the store as having the largest volume of sales per square foot of floor space next to Macy's bargain basement. Asked whether having the only store on the ship might be responsible for this outstanding record, Watson said, Mardi Gras Mary told me . . . . ,





Further forward along the same passageway
is a tiny cubicle from which comes the whirring
sounds of adding machines, the click of rusty
typewriters, and the occasional scream of delight
as a request for checkage comes through the mail.
This beehive of activity is known as the Supply
Office, and it is from here that twice each
month, (weather permitting) the paymaster comes
forth, money in one hand, bucket in the other,
to assist the eagle in dropping into each man's
hand what is left of his pay after various and
sundry collections. A common misconception is
that this is also the office of the Chaplain, and so
there is a never ending stream of heart-touching
stories of starving relatives, over‑due car
payments, etc., all ending with the same plea,
"Could I draw special money, Sir?"
