Vermillion, Ohio

Mystic Circle; Champion Checkers (4).

"Words are better understood If spoken but in kindness." Whether in a stirring speech or a game of checkers, Jimmy moves men. Talk about your nifty blue eyes the girls simply adore his (this is the only lie in the book). Jimmy is a confirmed bachelor and a Yankee, but he just insists on being dignified. As a student, he's on the job and has graced the law college by his refreshing stay.

-The Kentuckian, 1915
