[158] His mother always said he was one of a pair of twins -- that the other baby died before it was born. Whether this is true or not is not known. But apparently Betty's delivery of Hal was very difficult, and she was advised by doctors that she should not give birth again. Hal went to the junior college near their home in San Mateo. He and another fellow shared the duty of playing the piano for school assemblies. (The other fellow went on to sing professionally and own a few game shows. His name was Merv Griffen.) Hal was an Eagle Scout and his Scoutmaster was black, which was very unusual in that day. After high school, Dad joined the Navy and was assigned to attend school at Kansas State University in Lawrence, Kansas, near Kansas City. Meanwhile, Annabeth volunteered to help with the USO, where she met Hal in 1946, when she was 20.
