    I just happened upon your article as I was looking for the meaning of the phrase “Sleeper Jump”. I heard this phrase used in a movie, “Upper World” circa 1934,. and wondered what the meaning was. Thanks for the insightful article and the info on ADS.

    The line appears in Juvenile Jungle – 1958 – “Peter’s a kid and he lives a sleeper-jump out in the sticks.” Here used to say he lives a long way out.
