The worst thing that happened to the Carnation was that she left the shipyard. The next worst thing was that Ensign J. Roger Westbury was assigned to her as supply officer. Westbury had to solve three major problems for which he was monumentally incompetent: 1. Make the men eat more peanut butter. 2. Find space for 288,000 rolls of toilet paper. And 3. Stave off the Carnation's imminent mothballing. (os) ; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 174 pages .
