From the 1940 Lucky Bag:

MILTON LEON JARRETT, JR.

Huntington, West Virginia

For the past four years Milt has been an ideal companion, loyal, understanding, and, above all, dependable. He has never been menaced by academics, which his carefree nature and natural ability have permitted him to take in his stride. "Mo" spends a good many of his recreation hours athletically, engaging in tennis, swimming, golf, basketball, and workouts in the gym, all for the sheer sport of it. He drags often and well, but he has, as most of us, a soft spot in his heart for the "one and only." "Mo" insists on singing, not only in the shower, but also as he cleans up the room, but after four years we are inured to it. Yes, we'll even miss it.
