Cultures clash as the Swamp Rat Trio (Hawkeye, Spearchucker and Trapper) encounter bigoted Sgt. Baker who "owns" what the Army calls a "moose" or a young girl named Young Hi, who does all of his personal chores and domestic work. From musume (Japanese for girl) a moose is basically, a slave. Ho-Jon and Radar try to explain how poor families sell female children like Young Hi and it is considered a duty and an honor for the girl to help her family. Henry is not able to help and Baker cannot be bribed nor bought. Young Hi is a very personable young woman with an agile mind (Young Hi tells the doctors she does not make "monkey business" with Baker) and the doctors want to see Young Hi make something of her life. When the stakes are high for the 4077, the means must be commensurately low. Poker, anyone? Written by
