He entered heartily into the school activities, playing baseball, football and basketball. He was assistant editor of his senior class annual and carried leading parts in many school plays.

After finishing high school, he attended the Agriculture and Mechanical college for one year and, since that time, he has been employed by the City Drug company where his genial smile won him the friendship of his townspeople.
