    "Old Cash", the original "Mr. Quincy" arrived at M.M.A in a blaze of glory. He won many friends with his quick humor and the bottle of "handy brandy" he kept in his locker. Things ran pretty smooth for the South Quincy Terror until one night around midnight he started to tear up the quarter-deck and had to be put in his place by Mr.Hirst. This didn't phase our dauntless hero in the least and he soon went on to new and bigger things. For the sake of humor, Uncle Bob organized M.M.A.'s own National Guard Unit and trained them for combat against Sid. We think it proper to mention a little bit concerning cruise time. Many was the night Old Cash could be seen partaking of a little of "this and that" with his friends south of the border. To sum this up, we would like to say that Cash is a true sailor in every meaning of the word and his seamanship ability won him the respect of the officers and his shipmates.
