Capt. Blice was a fine gentleman and pilot. Dad liked working as "Chief" on the BELLE when Capt. Blice was in the pilothouse. He knew how to handle the boat with the least amount of bell ringing needed to get the job done.

It was also my pleasure to be one of the "Lord high watchmen" on the DELTA QUEEN while Capt. Blice was working over there. In pace requisant.
