I want to create a word and store a generated id and a string in the

I have the following words:

variable ma#
68 ma# ! \ just to find the value in the memoy

: ma: ( -- )
        1 ma# +! \ increment ma# - is there a better way?
        create ma# @ , \ reserve space and store the value of ma#
        parse-name 2, \ get next word and store addr and length
        does> ( -- u) @ ;

With the following definition:

ma: robert rs

I expect to see 69 when calling the word robert:

robert . 69  ok

When using the address of the word robert I have to get the address
of the body: 

' robert >body ? 69  ok

Now I want to see the string "rs":

' robert >body 1 cells + 2@ type  c ok

but this does not work.

What am I doing wrong?
