For a while, I had a binder on one of my office bookshelves labelled
"COBAL", due only to having a temporary worker who couldn't spell COBOL.

What is the model number for the EAM card interpreter?
At the college, I had a plugboard from one of them specifically set up for
putting the relevant fields of COBOL source files in handy locations on
the card (the interpreter did 60 columns of text, so it did not line up
with the columns on cards).  That particular plugboard was clearly
labelled "COBOL Interpreter".  So, yes, there was a COBOL interpreter :-)
