The pride of Orlinda's two hundred (beg pardon, 511) inhabitants came to the Naval Academy to put his podunk on the county map. Although he had a few difficulties, he managed to stand high in his class and give the home town plenty of toots. "Jigger"' was all for sports; but his bunk exerted a much greater influence. However, he managed to play battalion lacrosse, and to put his talents to work on the Ring Committee and as a Company Representative. He was always ready for a good time with an ever present smile, in spite of receiving numerous bricks. "Jigger" was a fine classmate and will do well wherever he goes.
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.
