From the 1945 Lucky Bag:

John Amos Lusby

Casper, Wyoming

Pardner, this feller's from Casper, Wyomin', where the only law's the six gun. Since regulations forbid fire arms, this feller's turned to the slide rule for his wicked work. The Academy's never seen anyone quicker on the draw. The halls look like slaughterhouses as Jack gallantly marches out with blood dripping from his slide rule. After each sanguinary session he's always heard moaning. "Did I bilge!" Being a star-man occupies little time. In the afternoons he's busy with cross country, wrestling, boxing, sailing, or playing his violin. Never says much about his love life, but you can bet that gleam didn't get in his eyes by chance. What a feller!
