Footballers Sport Weight, Speed as First Game
Approachesf Veterans, Letterman in Abundance
Although it is still too early in the sea-
son to predict definitely the team's future,
a brief review of the first team might shed
a little light for the newcomers to Reserve.
The first team, although it is still not
definitely set up, seems to line up pretty
well as listed here:
Bill "Root-en-toot" Hottenstein ably holds
down the left end of the hefty and heavy
eleven. "Root" played first team last year
easily winning his letter. Next door in the
tackle position 200 pounds of -Jack Brewer
fill any gaps that might occur in that part
of the line. Brewer likewise received his
"R" as a junior, missing first team last
season only because of the presence of
Laurie Dennett in that spot. Left guard
is again filled this year by Jim Howard, an-
other returning member of last year's
"Pablo" Brett, defense man supreme,
works off weight slowly this year at the
center spot. Pete displayes the world's
largest collection of murderous tackles and
never fails to use them. Small but effec-
tive Jim Gardner, known as the hardest-
hitting man on the team despite his 150
pounds, moves into the right guard posi-
tion this year with definite intentions of
remaining there. "Sandy" MacDonell re-
turns to the old right tackle spot that he
capably filled tlast year, with hope that this
year the temperature will be above freez-
ing when we play that gang in Cleveland.
Right end still remains wide open for com-
petition. The editor refuses to predict or
comment upon the outcome of this position
as it may go to anyone at any time. Bob
Tucker and Siddall seem to be the closest
contenders at the moment.
Moving into the backfield which this
year sports everything from size like Den-
nett to speed like Joslyn, the first man up
is "Doc" Timmis, diminutive quarterback
of the eleven. The "Doc" played second
string last year but missed his letter. Left
half Joslyn spent the winter learning those
plays he somehow misplaced last season
and now shows considerable haste behind
the line. That guy with the snake hips
that weaves all over the backfield is Jim
Roush, right half. Despite his lightness
Jim makes it considerably tough for tack-
lers, seeing to it that they don't put their
hands upon his rapidly-moving form. Last,
but not least, comes that towering mass
of hulk who heads up the fullback spot,
Laurie Dennett. Laurie played first string
tackle all last season and was acting cap-
tain in all but one game. He combines
fairly good speed with plenty of bulk and
may be 'counted on to plough under all
Among the outstanding second stringers
is John Atkinson, left guard and speed-
king of the whole outfit. "Hutch" Hutchin-
son strongly holds down the center of the
line while Dave Nicholson, Junior quarter-
back, shows very good indication of being
a red-hot player. Reservites may expect
to see him in a good many games. Ander-
son and Meek further speed up the second
string backfield with their lightfooted ways,
which have more than once left a towering
lineman slightly in doubt as to what just
As we stated in the beginning of this
little article, these positions are not abso-
lutely certain. This is merely the way
things stood when this went to press.
Saturday, the 30th, all Reserve will be
watching to see these guys beat Kent
leagues and lightweights
Rapidly Get Under Way
Once again Reserve has begun its full
athletic program. Until Monday only the
varsity football squad had been tramping
the green fields. On Monday all of Re-
serve's students reported to their respec-
tive sports. Some went to league soccer,
some to league football, and the remainder
to lightweight football.
The varsity soccer team has only four
games scheduled, but a goodly number of
hopeful new boys followed the returning
members of last year's squad onto the
field. Coaches Mickel and Roundy will
once again round the booters into shape
for the coming season.
In league soccer under the guidance of
Messrs. Cleminshaw, LaBorde and Auld,
the boys were put through a few exercises
before they were introduced to the differ-
ent ways to handle a soccer ball. No teams
will be chosen till the boys have been
rounded into fair condition. When the
games are being played there' will be five
teams, one of which will drop a day in
its turn and help about the campus or on
the neighboring farms. The work squad
program has not as yet been definitely de-
cided upon for this school year.
In league football the boys who turned
out were put through the usual routine
tortures before they began a rotating
game of tap football. The teams were
not definitely picked, as "Teb" must still
cut the varsity squad. The new cut will
greatly swell the ranks of the leaguers.
Under Mr. VVallace 'the light football
players also went through a conditioning
session before they swung into learning a
few fundamentals of the game.
As has been the custom every boy in
the school is required to take part in some
athletics each season. So far this plan
has proved' highly successful in keeping the
boys in good physical trim. This year will
not be an exception.

Besides the seventy-seven new faces of
the student body, there have also been five
new masters added. One of these new per-
sonalities of the faculty is Elmer A. Habel,
our representative from South Carolina. A
tall, good looking man, Mr. Habel has the
face and drawl closely resembling Kay
Kyser, with perhaps a more serious atti-
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, he spent
an active ten years in Missouri, Texas,
Georgia, and finally ended up in South
Carolina, where he entered the sixth grade.
In Spartanburg, South Carolina, he en-
tered Frank Evans High School and soon
proved his ability in athletics. He was
captain of the baseball team and pitcher
of the state-championship team that won
13 straight games one year. After a splen-
did record not only in baseball but also in
football and basketball, he followed this
up by being captain of the state-champion-
ship basketball team at Wofford College.
He also had four years on the varsity in
all three sports there. Although his pro-
fession is teaching, Mr. Habel's main in-
terest is athletics. He can remember that
in high school, before he had made any
positive decisions about a profession, he
was interested in the Y.M.C.A. physical
education program. This fall he is as-
sistant coach of varsity football, and he
hopes to continue through the year by
coaching basketball and baseball.
Mr. Elmer Habel
After graduating from Wofford College
in liberal arts, he waited five years and
then married Mrs. Habel in 1932-Septem-
ber fifth, to be exact-he recalls to his
Mr. Habel now lives in the apartment
at the south end of Cutler. He teaches
both first and third year mathematics, be-
sides his various athletic activities.

V0'-UME XX'-Nm 3 YY s a Munson, omo, SEPTEMBER za, 1944
Opens this Saturday
Beginning this week on Saturday there
will be a photographic contest open to all
students of the school. The contest's judges
are three very prominent members of the
school faculty: Messrs. Pflaum, Cleminshaw
and Habel. They will decide who will re-
ceive the three prizes of fifteen, ten and
five dollars for first, second and third place
The following are the rules of the con-
test. The subject may be anything which
represents life at Western Reserve Acad-
emy, such as athletics fincluding Mr. Seib-
by's calisthenicsl, social contacts, study,
dormitory shots, scenes of the campus--in
short, any scene made within the bounds
of the campus. fNo shots of putzes,
please.J The owners of the prints are to
put their names on the reverse side and
place them in a. box provided for that pur-
pose in the RECORD Office. It is further
understood that, though the pictures will
be returned to the owners, they may be
used in any way the school desires. The
final date is December 5, though it would be
desirable to have all the prints in as long
before that time as is conveniently pos-
This photo contest is a good chance for
the inexperienced photographer to win a
prize. Even though you may lack training
in this respect, you have a good chance to
win. Remember that some of the world's
best photographs have been taken by novices
with Brownie cameras. If you fail, you
have gained that much experience.
We repeat. The contest is open to every-
one and its success depends upon the con-
tribution which each makes to the competi-
tion. By they way, fifteen dollars could be
profitably used about Christmas time,
Rules lor Oli Campus leaves

Juniors and seniors taking Saturday per-
mits may leave at the end of their classes
on Saturday and must return on the 12:25
a. m. train from Cleveland, or the 12:40 a.
m. bus from Akron. Upon returning they

Week-ends may be taken, if a letter
granting permission is received by Mr.
Culver from the parents, or if the student
has blanket permission. Permission also

Lieut. William H. Heyman
Glee Club Makes First
Appearance in Vesper Service
The second vesper service of the year
was high-lighted by the Reserve Glee 'Club's
first public appearance. The song was
"Jubilee," an early Negro spiritual.
In his sermon Dr. Hayden spoke in be-
half of the many people in this war-torn
world seeking freedom in a land unknown,
a land with new and. unknown experiences
and adventures. For example, he told of
such men as the Biblical prophet, Abraham,
and Christopher Columbus, both seeking
freedom in untrod lands. Another illustra-
tion in modern times was taken from the
book, "Navajo Door," written by a physi-
cian and his wife. It told of their experi-
ences in the desert sands of Arizona among
the crude and almost uncivilized Navajo
Once, after having traveled for some
time without any sign of civilization, they
came to a gasoline station. While talking
to the attendant, a native of that region,
they learned to their astonishment of the
Indians' honesty and friendliness.
The point was that we and the peoples
of such nations as England, Germany and
France, peoples considered highly civilized,
are not as honest and as capable to live
together peacefully as the uncultured, un-
civilized Indians of the Arizona desert.
Last week the U. S. Navy Department
announced the death of a former Reservite,
Lieut. ij. g.j William H. Heyman. Lieut.
Heyman was the husband of Mrs. Nancy
Lindsay Heyman, 29023 Kingsley Road, Sha-
ker Heights, Ohio. His. parents, Dr. and
Mrs. C. H. Heyman, reside at 2676 Berk-
shire Road, Cleveland Heights, He was
first reported missing after his torpedo es-
cort craft, "Rich," was sunk due to enemy
action in the Normandy landing on D-day.
In 1935 Bill enrolled at W. R. A. as a
sophomore. After three years he graduated
with high honors in English, Latin, phys-
ics and American history. Bill, during his
stay at Reserve, was reported to have been
highly cooperative and an excellent citi-
zen. He was exceedingly anxious to do a
good job and to be a credit to his family
as well as to his school. A master re-
porting on Bill's accomplishments at the
end of the year wrote: "It seems to be a
unanimous report of Bill's masters that he
has worked consistently and accomplished
a very creditable job."
In the activity program Bill was on the
varsity football squad, worked in the shop,
and for two years was a valuable member
of the track team, running the quarter-mile,
and also as a member of the mile relay
In 1938 he was accepted as a freshman
at Williams College. Immediately after
graduation Bill joined the Navy. Follow-
ing induction he was sent to Columbia Uni-
versity. In April of last year he received
the commission of Lt. fj. g.J in the United
States Naval Reserve.
The following quotation is from a letter
which was sent to Williams College prior
to Lt. Heyman's entrance: "In character he
is one of the finest boys we have. He is
absolutely clean and wholesome, has a
strong sense of justice and plenty of cour-
age to stand for what he believes. At-
tractive in appearance, genial in spirit,
and sensible in his views, he is always
pleasant company." A memorial service
for Lt. Heyman was held at the Plymouth
Church of Shaker Heights last Sunday
morning. The address at the service was
given by Dr. J. B. Hayden.
