Okay, I didn’t want to spend too much time on this one page, but I ended up changing the bottom frame contents, combining some of the next page with it. Here is a detail of the bottom frame and the text.
I took all comments into consideration and came up with this composition. It definitely makes more sense now. And the orders are being yelled from Chief Kelley who is not in the frame. As for the bottom frame, I realize it is difficult to understand what you are seeing, but it will be clear once the shading and coloring are done. Thanks for all the observations!
