Multicolor poster with red and black lettering. Title at top of poster. Poster is a twelve-panel cartoon in which a tough sailor rejects the company of woman all around the world, only to pick up the first woman he sees upon return to the U.S. He is last shown entering a Naval Dispensary. The sailor's bookworm-ish friend ends the cartoon proclaiming the note text and enjoying a soda with his similarly bespectacled girlfriend.
