WALLACE CHADWELL (Born in Texas)
What style! I am referring to Wallace, executing his favorite sport, the playing of badminton. When he is not doing this, you will probably find him in the corner drug store, in the company of – an ice cream soda. He gets in the mood when he hears Phil Harris’s arrangement of “In the Mood”, and the only thing that makes him unhappy is snobs. “Lion Boy” is his favorite book, and he’s partial to Social Studies and the color yellow.
