|Be-moustached backwoodsman from
Millbank, Ontario, "Lefty" has been bothering Course 39 with well-aimed
pieces of chalk, lead, rubber and what have you, solidly whamed in the
back of the neck for lo these fourteen weeks. His invariable
answer when confronted by an indignant and distracted student with a
would driping gore is, "Why, Gosh, fellow, I didn't do it." To
which we reply by hitting him over the head with a Dalton and stabbing
him to death with his own dividers. But it does no good. We
just sit down and WHAM! again. A banker by profession,
being with the Canadian Bank of Commerce before enlistment, Lefty's
athletic interests run to soccer, softball, curling and badminton, and
his cultured pursuits to reading -- mainly his AP 1234! As far as
aviation goes, Lefty says that the greatest invention to date in the
Ansons is the round white cardboard thermos shaped containers --
"They're handy for holding all sorts of stuff"...he declares.
