From the 1939 Lucky Bag:



Harty, Elmer, Oswald

"Now I'm not one for the brag, but let's not study today—let's just talk, huh?" The usual day's start, however, means little, for Harty never once lets up in that determination and perseverance to win—in spite of all the snares and pitfalls set by the Academic Department. Whether it be in academics or in play—that will to win manifests itself in his every undertaking. His ready cheerful smile and helpful attitude have won him many true friends. Although his time for the fair sex is rather limited, when he does "splurge" the drags never forget! Considerate, helpful, honorable, he will find no difficulty in obtaining success. Sincerest best wishes to you, chum, from the entire gang of your well-wishers.
