From the 1942 Lucky Bag:
DAVID McMILLAN CURRER
Dave, Navy Davy
Dave starred in neither athletics nor academics, but as a five year man, he should be a cinch for Admiral. One of that amazing group that can smile on Monday mornings, he even shows interest in afternoon steam drills. He started Ins career on a Great Lakes gunboat, and, unless fate is treacherous, he should end it on a flagship.
