(Captain Savage and his Leatherneck Raiders#8) - Barclay and Little Bear put up a terrific fight, but were interrupted when Captain Simon Savage appeared, demanding an explanation. Little Bear was distracted at the sight of his C.O., and Barclay used the opportunity to knock him down. Barclay was declared the winner, much to Little Bear's chagrin. However, Captain Savage promised to inform the C.O.'s of all the men present of what they had been doing.
