I can see a few bodges:

1). > echo "<form action='delete_entry.php' action='get'>\n";  
should be: echo "<form  method='get' action='delete_entry.php'>\n";

2). You have two vars named the 'first' but with different values:
> echo "\t <input type='hidden' name='first'
> value='".stripslashes($first)."'>\n";
> echo "\t <input type='hidden' name='first'
> value='".stripslashes($last)."'>\n";

3). Careful what you print in your posts, some may find it offensive: 
>  echo "<h4 align=center>Something's fucked up with yo script ya
> herd...</h4>";
