Page 10 RESERVE RECORD September 28, 1944 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 their line. 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. Rat-id Reserve "Alli," the Alligator, newly arrived pos- session of Young, seems to have ambitions about visitors' fingers .... Where was Tan- ner Saturday, J. C.? Brother Gardner's once again in dis- repute at H. B. For confirmation just ask the week-enders. 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- whats. Intimates will give ten-to-one odds that Brewer collapses before Christmas. Scut- tlebutt likewise has it that the second Sat- urday in October may see a dance at Re- serve. Joslyn 'runs the end By .BGHIICY with Dennett blocking 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 point. 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 plays. 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 quarter. 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 decides. 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. tion. About the middle of the fourth period the first squad again crossed into the end zone on power plays.

September 28, 1944 ' RESERVE RECORD Page 9 Richard Scibby 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 former years. WITHOUT BESEBVE 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. Y 0 HVIX ? 'F mafia. iii?

Q9 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 Mr. Wheeler. 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 each. 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 campus seriously.

Kau ai 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 all. 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- here will 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 Seen at last Saturday's football game were a number of alumni who came up for the massacre. Skip Beckley, Bill Ha- 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- ence. In addition Wally Hirshberg, '44, came up from Cleveland. He is going soon into the Merchant Marine. Fred Giest, ex'45, drove up with Wally. Ed Howard was able to see both his brothers, Jim and Nat, in action in the game. Ed graduated in 1942 and is now in the Army Air Corps.
