Dick Remembers . . . “ The night I learned the true meaning of the word, “ PANIC! ” will always stick in my mind. It ’ s a very short story, and many of our classmates were allowed to go home to fetch our better halves, go to the OC Club and learn those social graces which we were not able to learn as Enlisted Men? If you do, then you MUST remember the ever-popular 4H Club. To make a long story short, I fell asleep after a particularly arduous 4H Club session! PANIC! Need I say More?
