Gridders Meet Stow High in
First Outside Practice Game
The Green and White gridders got their
first crack at foreign competition Tuesday
afternoon when they met St0w's team in a
practice game. No score was kept, since
whenever one team had it on the other's
goal line, the referees would turn the
whole works around and thus place the
winners at a disadvantage.
The game opened with Stow taking the
ball on their own 20. Such heavyweights
as Dennett, MacDonnell, Brett and other
linemen soon discouraged the opponent's
running attack with the result that they
soon kicked. Reserve's first and best play
of the afternoon came off at this point with
"Root" making a quick 20 yards. After
this, things settled down to a fairly routine
manner punctuated occasionally by one of
'Pablo's" tackles resulting generally in
the removal of somebody from the game.
Stow seemed to hold the kicking advan-
tage, while Joslyn ran fairly easily through
The first reversal of direction came
when "Jos" intercepted a pass and took
it to the Stow 15-yard line. Thus it con-
tinued throughout the game whenever one
team really threatened the other's goal.
"Jos" seemed to look better than usual
with 20 to 35'-yard runs. Roush got loose
twice, chalking up 30' yards each time.
Perhaps the high point in the game for
many came when "Mac" tagged an enemy
pass and ran about 30' yards to the op-
ponent's ten. Soon after this the Green
and White team was relieved by the sec-
and and third string which showed con-
siderable pepper on the defensive.
This Saturday will see whether the hard
work put in by the varsity will pay off.
"Alli," the Alligator, newly arrived pos-
session of Young, seems to have ambitions
about visitors' fingers .... Where was Tan-
ner Saturday, J. C.?

repute at H. B. For confirmation just ask
Two principle races seem to be taking
place on our campus. In the first the
faculty still leads the senior class, 17 com-
mittees against 11, and in the second, broth-
er Schultz still leads with 22 you-know-

First Team Nlops Up
Second in Practice Tilt
Preparing for their opening game against
Kent Roosevelt, the probable starting line
played the second string in a full length
practice game Saturday. Though minus the
services of Pete Brett and Jim Roush, the
first eleven was able to score four touch-
downs against one for the second team.
Neither team was able to put over an extra
With speedy Don Meek at right half and
Don Hutchinson filling a large hole in the
center of the line, the first team scored
within two' minutes of the beginning of the
game. After holding their adversaries and
forcing them to kick, the second team back-
field slipped up on one of Joslyn's punts,
and the first team recovered on their op-
ponent's ten-yard line. From there they
pushed over their second touchdown in two
The second team then took up the fight
with added energies but were still unable to
break through the larger line. Forcing the
second string to kick, the more experienced
team once again took the leather down the
field, scoring this time with a little more
difficulty. Joslyn, Meek, and Anderson were
turning in exceptionally good performances
of scat-back running.
After this, guards Howard and Gardner
were switched to the other side to even
up the lines. While these two stalwarts
were in evidence, a deadlock occurred.
However, led by Joslyn, the first team did
push over one more counter in the third
At the beginning of the fourth quarter
the second squad began to roll. Finding
a pass defense weakness, substitute quarter
Sullivan put the ball over the line by throw-
ing a goodly number to his man in mo-
Soccer Team Chosen,
Varsity Ranks Filled
Milligan, Marton, Rodman, Forker,
and Hoelinghoil Chosen Captains
Despite a small soccer schedule this year,
the booters are bustling about their ses-
sions with as much vigor as their pre-war
practices displayed. Competition seems to
be quite keen for several positions with the
result that the spirit has suffered little
from the war. For safety the Sports De-
partment therefore refuses to predict or
forecast any lineups in this sport. Next
week will be a different story however.
Monday the league teams were chosen
with Captains Milligan, Marton, Rodman,
Forker and Hoefinghoff assuming the lead-
ership of the five groups. Tuesday, Mar-
ton's bunch took over Rodman's, 6-0, and
Hoefinghoff's took Milligan's, 5-1. Forker's
contingent, as will be the custom hereafter,
worked that day. The custom so vaguely
spoken of is this. Five days each week,
four of the teams will play while the fifth
will work on one of the neighboring farms
or about the campus as Mr. Kitzmiller
Referees LaBoarde and Cleminshaw will
keep the teams in balance in order to hold
the good competition that was so evident
last year. t
When the varsity cut is enacted, there
will be aiswelling of the league ranks with
the result that the teams will be radically
changed. Let this be encouragement to any
moaning member who feels that his team
has been the victim of fate.
About the middle of the fourth period
the first squad again crossed into the end
zone on power plays.

' RESERVE RECORD
Most of Reserve has already agreed that
the school couldn't have picked any better
men to fill the places left by such men as
Mr. Mears and Mr. Worthen than those
masters which we find in their stead. Best
known to the varsity squad and well liked
by most of them even though his calis-
thenics are a little rugged, is Richard
Scibby. Mr. Scibby is sufficiently rugged
himself and has already put most of the
larger fellows in the squad under his thumb.
Born in Chicago, Mr. Scibby went to
a Chicago grade school and attended Carl
1111. Richard Scfib by
Schurz High School there. His main ath-
letic activity ini high school was swimming,
in which he competed in the 40 and 100-
yard free styles. After taking undergrad-
uate work at Kentucky State Teachers'
College, he obtained his M. A. as a gradu-
ate student of the University of Ken-
tucky. There he played college football
as left tackle, right guard and fullback.
Before coming to Reserve, Mr. Scibby
taught at the Lake Forest Academy near
Chicago and the Milwaukee Country Day
School. Besides teaching math, he coached
football at both institutions. After this
season's football he will coach swimming,
but it has not been decided just what he will
coach this spring. He cannot as yet make
any opinions or suggestions for the football
team, but he mentions that "Teh" ought to
be twins. However, since this arrange-
ment is impossible, the sports program will
continue to be run under the able leader-
ship of coaches Theibert, Habel and Scibby.
Mr. Scibby lives in the Athenaeum with
his wife and their nine-year-old daughter,
Betty, who has already made a noticeable
hit with the student body. Mrs. Scibby
was formerly a resident of Hudson, a fact
which pleases many who had known her in
In the past two weeks we have all been
aware of the old boys rejoicing in their
return to old Reserve Q". . . a lawn's wide
sweep, and long, dank halls, etc."J, the sen-
iors fondly admiring their dear rock, the
sophomores fondly admiring their dear
walk, and the juniors fondly admiring their
dear housemaster. 'Io the old boys the re-
turn to school is the fruition of a great
summer. If you don't know what fruition
means, ask Mr. LaBorde, who will tell you
in his own inimitable manner to memorize
"Word Wealth," III, unit 1-all the words
in large and small type, their derivatives,
their opposites, their synonyms, their third
cousins on the mother's side . . . and so on
into the night. But I hate to discourage
Mr. LaBorde's new freshman English class.
We of the RECORD believe it our solemn
and exalted duty to 'inform the new boys
about Reserve, to show them some of the
things the old boys cry themselves to sleep
over during the summer months. The fol-
lowing three examples will be enough to
condition anyone to the third degree.
Keep in mind, new boys, that everything
here has a purpose, when you see this, you
will have made a great step forward. For
instance, in the morning you will see boys
crowded in the doorway of Cutler Hall, you
will hear the sharp tone of a buzzer and
see these boys leap eagerly and anxiously
toward a certain marble threshold, on which
stands the commanding figure of Mr. Kitz-
miller fa master you will soon learn to
lovel. This may seem like a queer, quite
useless form of early morning gymnastics,
but it has a reason behind it. About De-
cember another man will stand by the first
and watch the competing leapers. This
man, an even more commanding figure, is
Mr. Mickel, whose job it is to pick the best
boys for the spring track team.
If you realize that there is a reason for
everything, you will not be at all surprised
at some of the things you see done here.

Activity Program Gets Under Way
The activities curriculum starts this week
under the supervision of Mr. Kitzmiller.
Mr. Kitzmiller has replaced Mr. Mears who
entered the navy last spring.
i The schedule finds most of the boys in-
terested in war activities, which are re-
quired of upper form boys who are enjoy-
ing only four full courses. Those carrying
four and a half credits do not need to, take
war activities providing that one of the
courses taken is either physics or chemistry.
The freshmen, as before, are required to
take a half credit course in Industrial Arts,
which this year is under the direction of
The upper forms are required to spend
a minimum of two periods per week in
their activities. The freshmen and sopho-
mores have their farm day in which to work
at their activities. 1
Of the 14 activities offered, seven are
considered war activities. These are First
Aid, Industrial Arts, Machine Shop, Motors,
Mechanical Drawing and War Chemistry.
The remaining are Glee Club, Journalism
QRECORDJ, Music Theory, Music Unstru-
ment and Voicel, Varsity Athletics and
Prefect Duty. The latter two are new
activities this year and were accepted be-
cause of the amount of time required for
For instance, last Thursday evening you
would not have been amazed and stood with
your lower jaw flapping loosely in the
breeze, when you saw Mr. Wallace climb
that ladder up to the third iloor of North
Hall with his bag of safecracker's tools.
Remember how deftly he jimmied open the
screen with the claw of his hammer and
then how he crept furtively into Naylor's
bedroom? As I said, there is a reason for
everything and if you want to know the
motive in this case, the line forms at the
bookstore Friday morning.
We of the RECORD would like to in-
form the new boys about the table proce-
dure here. One of the most important
things to learn, and it usually takes from
three weeks to a year, is the location of
the kitchen. One day, about half an hour
after lunch, a benign, undeniably freshman
face pushed its way hesitantly around my
bedroom door, like a groundhog cautiously
peering out of his quarters a week too
early in February, and said, "Excuse me,
but can you tell me how to get to the
kitchen?" When he saw me gape in be-
wilderment, he added, pushing before me
his tray, "Have a roll?"
It's things like that that shake my faith.
However, I smiled gently at my cherubic
intruder and patted his sunny little face
against the wall.
So don't delay, freshmen, get in step, fol-
low the trail beaten by your classmate and
comrade, Bud Schultz, and don't take senior

First Meeting ol Mugwumps
Planned With laurel
At a recent meeting with the faculty
advisers of their organization, the "Mug-
wumps" of this year's senior class ar-
ranged for their first joint meeting of the
year with the "Mugwumpettes" of Laurel
School in Cleveland.
For the benefit of the new boys at Re-
serve, the "Mugwumps" is made up of the
students of the senior class who are espe-
cially interested in social studies and cur-
rent events. This year's members are:
John Kramer, Jim Timmis, Sandy Mac-
Donell, Stuart Silver, John Prescott, Jim
Howard, John Atkinson, Art Bradley and
Bill Kelly. The faculty members are
Messrs. Roundy, Mickel and Pflaum. In the
past the group has held several meetings
each year with a similar group from the
neighboring girls' school at Laurel, at
which meetings some current topic, chosen
before hand, was discussed and argued back
and forth between the various individuals.
Four such gatherings are planned for this
year, but as yet the dates of all of these
have not been determined.
The date of the opening meeting of the
two groups is set for Friday, October 13.
This date was particularly chosen because
of the fact that during that week Caesar
Searchinger, of the American Historical
Society, is to be on the academy campus,
and it was felt that his presence offered
a fine opportunity to start the "Mug-
wumps"' season in an auspicious manner
by having a first-hand commentator like
Mr. Searchinger lead the discussion.
According to tentative plans this first
get-together is to be held at the Cleveland
school and will include dinner at Laurel.
Leaving the campus around 5:30, the boys
will return between 9:30 and 10 in the
evening. All of the "Mugwumps" are an-
ticipating the coming event with pleasure.
Saturday Night Movie
There has been recently, from a num-
ber of sources, a great deal of dissatis-
faction expressed concerning the Satur-
day Night Movie in the gym. Several of
the boys, disregarding the desires of any
others present, invariably make it impos-
sible for those so inclined to enjoy the
show. If those who are unable to con-
trol their behavior will perform else-
where, it will be greatly appreciated by
The committee responsible for the
Saturday entertainments have selected a
number of top-fiight pictures including
"Corvette K225," "The Phantom of the
Opera," "Reap the Wild Wind" and
others of equal calibre. We trust that
all those who attend may have the op-
portunity to enjoy these splendid films.
HUDSON, OHIO, OCTOBER 5, I944
Mr. Caesar Searchinger
To Visit Reserve Campus
Mr. Caesar Searchinger will visit the cam-
pus from Tuesday, October 10, to Saturday,
October 14. During his stay he will dis-
cuss international understanding and sig-
nificant trends to watch in the news. All
the history classes will meet in the. chapel
for consultation with the speaker.
Mr. Searchinger is a columnist and a
news analyst speaking on the N. B. C. na-
tional hookup at 10':15 Sunday evening,
sponsored by the American Historical As-
sociation. The title of his radio program
is "The Story Behind the Headlines," cover-
ing the significant historical background of
the week's news.
During his stay on the campus Mr.
Searchinger will open the year's civil as-
sembly program with a Wednesday morn-
ing chapel talk on current events. In the
mornings to follow he will speak to the
history classes in small groups and gather-
ings of students wishing to discuss current
events with him. In the afternoons and in
his other free time Mr. Searchinger will
write his column and prepare his broadcast.
In the evening he will meet various groups
of students to discuss the means and meth-
ods of digesting the week's news.
There will be several opportunities for
individual students to meet Mr. Searchinger
by appointment, if they so desire. One of
the main events in which the school is con-
cerned while Mr. Searchinger is
be a Mugwump dinner at Laurel School on
Friday evening. He will leave Saturday
morning in order to be able to make his
broadcast from New York City. While on
the campus he will stay at Pierce House
as a guest of Dr. and Mrs. Hayden.
Alumni Visit Campus to See
Reserve Take Football Game

mann, Steve Johnson and George Gregory
of last year's graduating class appeared
in navy blue. All four are taking navy
training at Case School of Applied Sci-
In addition Wally Hirshberg, '44, came
up from Cleveland. He is going soon into
