Lucky Bag

From the 1968 Lucky Bag:


Jack, like most of us, came to the Academy a civilian at heart. Coming directly from Davenport, Iowa, he had a year at St. Ambrose College under his belt along with a spare tire which was a result of that highly cherished year. He adjusted well to his second freshman year here, due greatly to his easy-going likable personality.

His four years on the Severn brought many laughs to all who crossed his path, and many ideas to modernize the "Marble Monastery", most of which never got out of his room. He had a standing feud with the technical aspects of the curriculum, and though it did score a few knockdowns, it never gained a decision. Besides working hard to beef up his QPR, "Hoagie" was an intramural stalwart who hated to lose, as evidenced by his hard-hitting heavy weight football career.

Jack looks with great anticipation and relief to graduation, after which Navy air will occupy his time. He is sure to brighten many more lives as he has brightened ours on many occasions.
