What was your major in college?
I started out in business school. I believe my first two years I was in business school. Then I went in the service. Then I got out of the service in October around the end of October, and I was already one month behind in my education to pursue a business education, so I switched to Phys. Ed. Where I knew I could probably pass my work then. I was afraid if I pursued a business education, I was so far behind that I might flunk out, and I didn’t want to do that. I mean, there is three things I wanted to do when I left home -- number one, I wanted to get a college degree; number two, I wanted to make All American; number three, establish myself where I give my family a decent standard of living, which I accomplished, and that is what I wanted to do.
You reached all your goals.
Do you remember a favorite professor?
I had one. I think his name was Armstrong. He was quite a sports fan and he was a golfer, and I would communicate with him, and I had him when I first was taking business under him. I think it was, oh, business six or something like that. He always had a worksheet to fill out and everything of that nature, and I was always business oriented, and I enjoyed the business aspect of my education, but as I said earlier, I got so far behind when I got out of the service, I was afraid to pursue it because I might flunk out, and I didn’t want to do that.
No, I understand.
I mean I didn’t ever want to go home as a failure. That was one thing, when I left home I was going to come back as a form of success in some way -- either in education, athletics or in business or something like that. I just never want to be a failure in anything.
You more than did that.
Well, I tried to do that, yeah.
