The torpedo was 'half buried in the mud at the bottom, and Al couldn't tell which end was which. He started to dig. There was two feet of muck and slime covering d weapon of war, and it was quite a tough job that long, for a man hampered by clumsy diving togs. But after a while Al got so interested in his job that he wasn't noticing those togs or much of anything else. He dug out as much of the stuff as he could standing up, then he got flown on his knees. When he had dug as much as he could on his knees, he lay down flat on his stomach and kept right on digging. By that time he had a pretty good hole dug. At last he could feel the metal of the torpedo. But the feel of metal didn't tell him which end of the doggone thing he was at, and he began digging some more, to find out if it was the nose -- or the tail. niiii.iirinirmntiriiiMriinTiri in command, by Jinks!"
