Lucky Bag

From the 1943 Lucky Bag:


Marion, Indiana

A Hoosier from Old Purdue, "Archie" brought with him a love for the great outdoors and an excellence in archery and small arms. His energy and thoroughness knew no limits in his complete mastery of his subjects of interest. His tenacity of purpose and perseverance won both our admiration and respect. Often seen with the fairer sex, among whom he was a favorite, George coupled a love of dancing with an irresistible charm to make him a favorite dragging companion. A sympathetic roommate, a considerate upperclassman, and a keen discerner of the truth, he will be an officer desired as a shipmate and sought as a leader.

The Class of 1943 was graduated in June 1942 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
