All The Ships at Sea

Price: $2.25

All The Ships At Sea

All The Ships At Sea, Navy Humor


where a man can get into Annapolis by acting as "captain of the head"...

where a man can win a night club in a crap game;...

where a man can throw a "schmootzle"* and have 500 gorgeous debutantes as his guests...

where a man can get orders to go out and learn about women ...and further orders not to come back without the evidence!!!


*"schmootzle": a snooty, white-tie-and-tails kind of party that everyone tries lo crash ...and can't!


About The Author

The cold facts: William J. Lederer, Captain, USN; born New York city, 1912; various city high schools; newspaper reporter; enlisted in navy to get an education, 1930; Naval Academy, 1932-36; steady advancement; and until late summer, 1950, chief of magazine and book division, office of public information, department of defense. At present Captain Lederer is stationed in, Hawaii.

More to the point is his secretary's comment: "All I know is that he's always in 16 different kinds of trouble and always wiggles out in a blaze of glory. He stutters, and enjoys it. He cured himself but relapsed because he found that people listened more carefully when he stut­tered."

It should be added that they listen because what Lederer has to say is a wonderful story, as readers of Collier's, Saturday evening post and Reader's Digest already know.
