Vol. 3 No. 31 ……. Cover: The sailor gave a quick double take and asked the girl if she was a WAVE. She was. “Haven’t you ever seen a WAVE?” she asked. The sailor hadn’t. “You poor boy,” the WAVE said. “You must have been overseas a long time.” He had. For the benefit of other long-timers, this week we present a WAVE cover girl, Marcelle Ahern S1c, one of 200 who recently landed on Oahu. Several thousand more are expected to arrive eventually.
