loafing, somebody picks up a paddle or a racquet and pretty soon both tables are busy and so is the badminton court. I'll be an expert in net games when my time is up. Already I'm recognized as something of a dark horse. In the early days one game eliminated me but now I stick around a while. That's some occupation for a grown man - fooling away his time playing table tennis and maybe, I mean certainly, if {they} we have any trouble, climbing into a plane and shooting up some other planes and dropping torpedoes on ships. You would have to see them to appreciate what I mean. They are not like people on the outside. I almost said civilized people but only meant civilians.

All right match for this length.

Pat
