Holden roomed with him for two months at Elkton Hills. He was a bore with a very raspy voice. But he could whistle great.Holden never told him he thought he was a great whistler (123).
Through the intrusive memory, Holden is able to ease his anxiety about girls marrying the "wrong" boy. He creates a peace in his mind that states that bores might have secret talents that he doesn't know about and that bores do not hurt anyone.
