Editor's comment:"This is Captain Brightwater Smith, bighorn ewe, and commander of
 the Rain Island Naval Syndicate's Landing Forces. This is probably from one of the
Landing Forces annual calendars. As reported by W.D. Reimer, various sections of
RINS would elect candidates for the photos for the months. The calendars were
sold for recruiting, with profits going to various charitable syndicates."

Editor: An unexpected meeting in a shower-room on the Spontoon Islands.
While a 'village-style' public bath-house may have common soaping & rinsing
areas & shared hot-soak pools, there are often small private rooms with tubs &
showers that may used for a reasonable amount of time. This is a private bath,
and you obviously didn't notice the 'occupied' plaque on the door. (It happens.)

While most of the 'village-style' bath-houses are on Main Island, there are some
on the other islands around the Lagoon as well, and some of those may be quite
elaborate in design and plumbing, to attract visiting travelers.

"On deck Art Lesson" by Roy D. Pounds II (on board the S.S. Athena) - by Roy D. Pounds II
"On deck Art Lesson" by Roy D. Pounds II
Update 30 September 2015

"One pleasant day as the S. S. Athena was steaming towards the Spontoon Islands,
Mr. T. J. Foxx decided to pass the time before his next watch by sketching and doodling
while enjoying the cool breezes from off the No. 3 Cargo Hold hatch. He soon
found himself the center of attention of a small group of Female crew members
who took delight in teasing him, but also complimenting him on his drawing style.
Millie even got the little Vulpine to blush when she asked him if she could pose
for him in the nude, "Like any good Artist's model should." She was only
joking of course, but for awhile there, "Foxy" couldn't help but
let his imagination run away from him."

Alpha Magazine
"For the head of the pack"

"Alphy" the Alpha Magazine mascot by R.J. Bartrop
The "Alpha Magazine" mascot
by R. J. Bartrop

First published in 1932, Alpha offered articles on fashion grooming, and sports,
as well as other topics of interest to men. Featuring articles and fiction
by some of the leading writers of the day, it's probably best remembered
for the "Alpha Female". These illustrations of the female form
were created by a variety of artists, but probably the most famous
were the work of Argentine artist Luis Ramirez, not just for his art,
but for his grisly murder in 1938. The magazine declined in popularity
 in the post-war period, looking somewhat quaint compared to
newer offerings like Playfur and Pentmouse,.(via R. J. Bartrop)
