Two sailors stand on a beach, near a palm tree and tall grasses. They are looking at four pairs of boots next to the remains of a fire. Two forked poles in the ground hold a third pole on which food could be hung for cooking. One sailor remarks, " Fortunately we' ve arrived in time: those man-eating rascals haven't eaten everything." The caption under the cartoon reads "Poor comrades!" (Virginia K. Anderson 04/10/95)
