After hauling carts to a large warehouse, the author and those working with him were given a slight reprieve. During this time, he and his companions managed to scavenge a meal of uncooked rice and brown sugar before being ordered to return the carts back to the camp. On the return trip, the commanding officer, known as the Bloodhound, unsuccessfully attempts to embarrass the boys by inviting passing people to mock and ridicule them, where he is met with shock and silence.
