George Warburton Lewis 1940 CW Driscoll social column
General George Warburton Lewis and his fife, Zoraida, were good enough to call on us and break bread, recently. A more interesting couple you won't-flnd-in a long ramble about New. York. The General is six feet three, weighs 180 pounds, and is put together like &:i old-fashioned Texas st^er, with long leg's and arms, loosely jointed. He's not a young man but he can stand on his head and keep a basketball going with his feet, at less than a drop of a hat. Zoraida. Is a tiny, dark-eyed beauty, speaks with : an engaging Spanish accent, sings Spanish folk songs charmingly, teaches languages at a downtown school. General Lewis was born in.Kan- sas, has fought in a score of revolutions and trained many thousands of soldiers in tropical countries, and a few years ago llnlsfted the job of training' an army for the African republic of Liberia. I first met him in Porto Rico in 1924 when he was Chief of Insular Police, a military body. Ho was then a bachelor. He married the charming Zoriada while conducting a war for her distinguished father 1 , in Nicaragua. Lewis writes adventure stories for magazines now. I am hoping he will write 'he true story of bis life and adventures ,is a book. It ought to outrank most thrillers.
