While at the Milton Hershey School, Jerry and Paul were split into different houses, with administrators often blaming Paul for any slip in Jerry's grades. Paul was small and ornery, which often got him into trouble with both students and adults.
Eventually, Paul was given a choice: Shape up or leave. So, as a seventh-grader, Paul was forced to make a decision that he would come to regret for the rest of his life.
