From the 1942 Lucky Bag:


Kreeps, Ray, Raymie

When you hear a tenor voice and a carefree, sentimental song, you'll know that Kreeps is close aboard. Here's one of those snakes who has dragged more women than there are numbers on a slip-stick. Not only is he successful with the fairer sex, but he never has had much trouble with the academics, as can be understood from a look at his class standing. You can be certain he'll always put out the straight dope. Good luck, Kreeps.
