Attends the Humanistische Gymnasium on Münsterplatz in Basel. He is in the same class like Moritz Leuenberger who is now one of the seven Bundesräte of Switzerland. He remembers Moritz as a special case, always good for a prank or two. In the morning, hyperactiv Moritz would enter the classroom, jump the benches, make a lot of fuss and when the teacher would ask who was responsible for the disorder, Moritz was long gone.
Jürg loves sport and is good at it. He goes for training every afternoon. No evidence of any talent in the arts. In his leisure time he plays banjo and on Sunday morning starting at 5 am he helps the milkman till midday. He earns a glass of fresh cream which he brings home for the Sunday afternoon cake. During the week, on free Monday afternoon, he works in the fishmarket and at the Railwaystation cleaning SBB railcar windows. He spends his earnings on building a laboratory for chemistry experiments down in the basement. He works on a big construction for a panoramic electric railway in the attic, an unaccomplishable task he never tires of working on, but never finishes.
