From the 1942 Lucky Bag:
Quiet and unhurried, Paul goes about his business. He came to us a real "cornhusker"; but, despite the call oi the farm, he has changed his ways to those of the sea. In fact, he has taken such a fancy to the water that he can be found paddling around the pool most any after- noon. Pablo's good nature and helpfulness make him a perfect "wife," be you stagging, dragging, or in need of a little academic advice.
Battalion Football; Boat Club 2; C.P.O.
