From the 1939 Lucky Bag:
KENNETH LEON KOLLMYER
The far-reaching arm of the Navy dragged Kenny forth from the cornfields of Iowa. He began his naval career by reporting late for his physical exam. The reason — he overslept. Kenny is a potential star man but he is firmly convinced that eight hours sleep are insufficient and therefore his evening study hours becomes his evening siesta. His habitual smile, his thoughtful consideration and his bright and cheerful "good morning" make him a desirable roommate. His inherent good humor and seemingly endless knowledge of subjects of general interest make him an ideal addition to any bull session. When Kenny receives his commission the Navy will receive an officer and a gentleman who will be ready and willing to carry on the customs and traditions of the Service.
