Two of the high ranking officers of the USS Enterprise looking on at the initiation during crossing the line ceremonies. Pollywogs being hosed down with fire hose. The initiation taking place on the flight deck. Pollywogs crawling along in a single file on the flight deck. Their subpoenas between their teeth. Two rows of Pollywogs moving along on their hands and knees over the flight deck as the Shellbacks swing at them gently with their canvas clubs. Rolled cord with the Pollywogs standing before the roll of cord given their punishment. A Pollywog getting in a garbage trough. Shellbacks shake the trough back and forth. Man climbs out, another Pollywog climbs in. He is covered with garbage. He climbs out of the trough. Starks up on the flight deck. The Shellbacks.
