42-51 Visitors and Money

42.  You take turns cleaning and mopping your room but most rooms have at least one guy who will take your turn for $1.00 (mackerel). Well worth the $2.00 per month if you have a job.

47.  There are stand up counts at 10 am, 4 pm, and 930 pm.  There are bed check counts at midnight, 3 am and 5 am.  You must be in bed for these counts so you need to pee in between count.
