Al When I was in High in Chicago they had REFORM schooll for trouble makers to attened the Chicago street cars had to be used to get to school which meant long hours for a commute and a tough run school of course no one wasanythng like the uruly kids today-and I would say that parents did not spare the rod in discipline when their kids went astray. I believe the loss of family and care and love and monitoring is part of the problem

I understand the Israeli schools lock outside doors and have at least two staff members (usually teachers) trained to use weapons and use concealed carry. I am told they have not had a school shooting incident.

If you are a fan of Oscar Brand you can find most of his songs on Youtube.

Ollie: I've always loved Oscar Brand's "Bawdy Songs and Backroom Ballads", have two of his LPs which I would play if I still had a 33 1/3 rpm turntable. You Remember Ruth Wallis? She had some good ones, too, "The Cutest Little Dinghy in the Navy".

You can get all those Navy, AF, Army songs in a CD of Oscar Brand. For the Navy there are Guantanamo Bay, Destroyer Life, The Reuben James, Steam Torpedo, Laws of the Navy and Zamboanga and other ripe ones.

Saw a news story tonight that claimed noise pollution is hard on heart health. So take heart, fellow deaf classmates - we will live to a ripe old age because we can't hear all that noise!

I only recall one troop song from my tour in Korea in 1948. I have forgotten the tune but the words still with me are" " Way down yonder in Yong Dong Po, sheba,sheba ha-va-no". I used to stop off there with supplies while driving a two and a half from Seoul to Inchon. When my troop ship landed in Inchon in December, 1947, we noticed a large sign which stated, "The Golden Gate in '48 or the Salt Mines in '49'. Not exactly a morale builder I'd say.

I would replace the "Do not use" sign with one stating: " You are on camera. If you use this out of order urinal never run for public office. If you do you your picture will be shown during the campaign for sure."

For Al C: The quoted lines from the "Whiffenpoof Song", are somewhat mangled. The old British song (by George Wither) reads "Shall I, wasting in despair,/ Die because a woman's fair?" etc. Also, the other title is the Irish ballad "Kathleen Mavourneen". a really pretty song. Was briefly featured in the "Gettysburg" movie, you may call it up and listen.

Found IT!

To the tune of: “On Top of Old Smokey”

On Top of Old Fuji,

All Covered With Snow.


I Lost My True Jo-san,

I Ran Out of Dough!

You Come Back Again.
I Said, “Neva Hotchie,”
I’ve Run Out of Yen.

So I went to Gotemba,
And Met a Miss Lee,
She Said For a Short Time,
You Come Stay With Me.

We Went to Her Hoochie,
A Room With Strange Floors.
We Left Our Shoes Outside,
And Slid Shut The Doors.

She Took Off Her Long Johns,
And Rolled Down The Pad.
Her Breath Smelled of Kimchee,
Her Bosom Was Flat.She Said “Sayonara,”
No Hair On Her Body,
I Gave Her Two Thousand,
T’was All That I Had.

I Asked To Go Benjo,
She Took Me Outside.
I Reached For Ole Smokey,
It Curled Up And Died.
Now How About That!
I Went To The Corpsman,
Said “What Shall I Do?
The Doc Was Dumbfounded,
Ole Smokey Was Blue.

So If You’re In Gotemba,
On Your Next Three Day Pass.
Stay Away From Lee’s Hoochie,
Stay Away From Lee’s Hoochie,
Your Ass May Get Tender,
and Lee May Tempt You.
But Better Get Red Ass,
Than Ole Smokey Blue.
Copied off the wall of a hard-back tent at Marine Camp Fuji, 3rd Marine Infantry Regiment, in 1955. Author unknown; however his ribald but moral humor indicates experience in the recent Korean War, Army jargon, as well as the local environment. Jo-san (Japanese girl). Sayonara (goodby in Japanese). Gotemba (town near Marine tent camps North, Middle, and South Camp Fuji in the mid ‘50s). Two Thousand Yen (then 360Y/1$ ). Kimchee (an odiferous, pungent, Korean “delicacy”).
Benjo (Japanese squat down toilet or outhouse).

Apologies are offered to those who may be offended by the words. Please consider the author’s most recent combat experiences, the coarse living in tents on the near slopes of Fuji san (Mount Fuji), the all male environment, harsh weather( below 0 at night in the winter), constant training 6 days/week, and the lack of civilized and domestic influences.
