John Ambrose asks Dr. Martel to rejoin the controlling committee as a health officer but he demurs,not wanting the pressure. The Germans' market garden is sabotaged when their fuel is run off, making it impossible to water their produce. As a result, Hellmann, an overzealous member of Muller's staff, goes behind his back and rations the islanders' water supply. Ambrose protests but Richter tells him to get a medical opinion before he can consider reversing the decision and suggests he tries Dr. Martel again. As a consequence the doctor reluctantly rejoins the committee and gets the order withdrawn.
