He had such a deep voice his friends gave him the nickname "Dippermouth" or "Satchelmouth". But his voice gave him a job to hand out newspapers, people a mile away could hear him. His biggest dream was to play a trumpet and on New Year's Eve, 1913, he got his dream. At first he played tamberine in the Waifs' Band, later he played the drums in the piece "At the Animals' Ball." After that he was a school bugler, and finally the band master gave him him his first trumpet to play. He was so happy he kissed the trumpet and after school took it to a tool shop and fixed it up so it fit his lips better.
