From the 1942 Lucky Bag:
WILLIAM MURRAY CHEWNING
Billy, Blue Goose
Football has been Bill's main interest since he came to the Academy. Next to his football comes studying and sleeping but they were always incidental. His influence has been definite and lasting and it will be a long time before we shall forget his caustic humor or sharp criticism of our drags. What of his? They were all perfect, of course. So, more power to you, Bill, and may the Marines appreciate you as much as we have.
