Electronic Lucky Bag: Fourth Battalion

William John Pawlyk

New York, New York

"Da Lump," like many others, arrived at the Naval Academy with many aspirations and dreams yet to be fulfilled. Hailing from Manhattan, Bill received much good humored ribbing about his accent. As far as vocal quality went, Willie had a fine voice which could deafen his roommates and often did. He wisely channeled this talent into the choir. Bill was in the Foreign Relations Club, <I>Lucky Bag</I> representative, and a hard driving water polo and football player. Despite a high average, studies took a minimum of time, with letters to his "O.A.O.," and the complete reading of the daily newspapers and professional magazines taking up much of his study periods. The wearing of the Submariner's Golden Dolphins is Bill's ambition in life. With his determination and phenomenal "luck," Bill will be a fine officer and a valuable asset to the Navy.
