"On Him It Looks Good, Too"

This cartoon from Milwaukee Sentinel cartoonist Lou Grant, published seventy years ago last month, shows Brewer president Bill Veeck having recently enlisted in the Marine Corps.
The "sport shirt kid", Bill Veeck has up and joined the Marines... and so it's good-bye for a while to "Leatherneck" Veeck, the guy who put the Brewers on the map...

I particularly like Grant's new lyrics for the "Marines Hymn":
From the walls of Borchert Orchard
To the shores of Old Long Neck,
The Marines have never had a pard'
Who could duplicate Bill Veeck!!
