Page 12 RESERVE R E C O R D October 5, 1944 One Down . . . . AST Saturday the Reserve football team won its opening game. No offense meant to the losers--it was not an imposing victory, for the opponent's record was not an outstanding one. However, the victory was significant in that it afforded the squad a certain amount of confidence and disclosed a number of glaring mistakes. The best kind of game is one which leaves the team best prepared for the coming contests, for otherwise it would be impossible to discover any points which need improvement. Now answer for yourself this question. Have you won your opening game academically? The preliminary days of school are over, and whatever you may do now cannot alter all that has gone and passed. It may be that the masters have drawn. first blood, and if not, you probably have one foot in the infirmary from exhaustion. But regardless of your relative suc- cess or failure, you may profit by experience. The best kind of game is one which leaves the team best prepared for the next. If you know what points are weakest, you have won your first round. Back It Upl ELIEVING that a statement of the function of the School Council might be helpful to those students who have entered Reserve for the first time this Year, the RECORD publishes herewith a brief statement of its general powers. It is to be noted from page nine of the Handbook that the composition of the Council includes both faculty and student delegates, making it a truly representative organization. The first responsibility which the Council undertakes is to assist the Headmaster and the Executive Committee in all phases of the life of the school. To this end, it meets each day at the lunch period in order to be in con- stant touch with any problems which may arise. Governed by no constitution, the Council is free in the conduct of its work. Suggestions made by it may concern widely different matters. Wisely it has chosen to select those in which it may definitely make a. contri- bution to the life ofthe academy. Consequently, al- though it is not one of the oldest organizations on the campus, it is, perhaps, the organization most respected. In matters of discipline the Council holds a consider- able balance of power. Its suggestions to the Dean or the Executive Committee customarily bring censure to the individual involved or discipline by means of the merit score. The membership this year is considered a particu- larly strong group of boys upon whom we may count for direction and leadership. It will be able to serve its pur- pose best if each member of the student body gives his undivided support. The REC-ORD Staff. Yeur's Dunce Schedule Announced by Committee After holding several meetings the dance committee has decided upon the following plan for the year. There will be three dances each term, two of which will be council dances. One dance each term will be a special occasion. In the fall term the "R" Club will sponsor a Fall Sports Dance. In the winter term the annual Junior Prom will be held. Every effort will be made to have this a dinner dance. In the spring term, preceding graduation, there will be the formal Senior Prom, which, we trust, will be a dinner dance also. The dances, with the excep- tion of the proms, will be open to all forms of the school. The bounds this year are the same as previous years. Intermission will be from 8:35 to 9:05 in order that the boys may be warned by the striking of the clock and not come in late. By vote of' faculty and boys on the committee, lateness in return- ing from intermission will be noted and will result in a tenth for every five min- utes up to fifteen. Boys later than fif- teen minutes will receive three tenths and such further penalty as may be recom- mended by the school council. The school has arranged to buy records to start a rec- ord album of dance music. This is a new plan and we hope all will appreciate it. As was the case last year, overnight ac- commodations will be arranged for girls who have some distance to travel. Date cards forthe first dance must be in by the sixth period on Monday, October 9.

Reservites Help to Pick Apple Crop on Neighboring Farm For the last five days volunteers from the Academy have been picking apples at the Gott Farm, about two miles east of here. They started work between 1:30 and 2:30 p. m. and came back in time for the 5:45 period. All of them have been a great help in getting the apple crop picked, and Mr. Gott has been very thankful for the work. There are still ten more days in which the Gott Farm will need more boys to help. Mr. McGill would be glad to sign up any boy who wants to volunteer for this job. The boys who have already volunteered are Wattleworth, S. Newell, Sheldon, Weick, Bender, Maples, Bacon, Jones, Gerhouser, Ernstene, Simons, Wright, Graves, Con- ners, Brad. Williams, Linforth, Stoltzfuss, Rodman, Gaylord, D. Collins, Brady, B. Rog- ers, Kyman, E. Garver,, Perciball, L. Hag- gerty, J. Carter, G. Carter, Cockley, Ruede- mann, Swiler, Maxwell, Bruce Williams and Marton. The Rotary Club of Hudson has also been helping Mr. Gott in picking apples and is trying to make a plan so that there will be enough pickers for the farmers in this part of the county. Mr. Jones would appreciate it if any boys who have'had previous experience in running a motion picture camera would get in touch with him.

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.

October 5, 1944 RESERVE RECORD Page 13 I-lomer Cleary Not only has Reserve decided that the new masters are all nice fellows, but one also notices the variety of their sorts. Homer Cleary has entered the ranks of those who definitely have a good sense of humor. Mr. Cleary, whose picture adorns this page, has actually taken a good-sized share of what the world has to offer. Be- sides teaching Spanish I and II, he takes M r. Homer Cleary interest in books, languages, music, and practically anything connected with the theater. The musical part is of special in- terest to those who have discovered his ability at playing the piano. An alumnus of University School, Mr. Cleary was born in Marion, Ohio, where he attended grade school. After graduat- ing from Dartmouth, he spent a year at the Sorbonne in Paris and traveled ex- tensively in Europe and North Africa. Later he returned to Paris to study and afterwards spent a summer in Spain and Italy. He also attended the graduate school of Western Reserve University. Mr. Cleary has taught at both University School and Virginia Polytechnic Institute. At both of these he worked along the lines of his interest in the theatre by directing dramatics. Although Mr. Cleary has followed other lines than teaching, he has been loyal for most of his years to his college decision to honor the academic life. Brother of Mrs. Eilbeck Dies The school regrets to report the death of Mr. Charles Bechtel, brother of Mrs. Eilbeck, the school librarian. Mr. Bech- tel was associated with the Budd Company of Philadelphia. He died at Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and Mrs. Eilbeck attended the burial at Philadelphia last Saturday. LUITHDUT RESERVE On Shaving and Shavers It has been generally proved that there are four great adolescent sports: football, basketball, baseball and shaving. Some experts class shaving as a hobby or pas- time, but Dr. James C. Rothingbottom, B. S. A. fBoy Scouts of Americaj, my refer- ence, once said, "I like bananas 'cause they ain't got no bones," which doesn't prove much about shaving, and personally I can't see why he said it. Shavers have often been classified. A man in Sydney, Australia, Prof. L. X. Arpinghammel, N. B. C. fNational Biscuit Co.J, made shavers his life study. He had a very unhappy home life and was forced to retire. His wife, unhappy soul, sued for divorce when he cut off his nose proving that the Turks did shave with their battle- axes on horseback. This, of course, was an extreme case. Records of the modern Turk show that not more than 4154 'Z are nose- less. Modern shavers with nicotine nerves sometimes acquire that scrubbing-board or terrace-form face. Look around you!! The most common type of shaver at Re- serve is the Zealous Novice. To become a true member, one must shave from four to forty times a day. Upon arising in the morning, a Z. N. rubs his chin thought- fully and asks his roommate, "Don't you think I look terrible with this growth?" And then without waiting for an answer, "I'll just simply have to shave." Unless you are six three and weigh two hundred, I heartily advise keeping the trap shut, for nothing in the comic strips or on the din- ing room bulletin board could do a better job of turning a 97-pound weakling into a homicidal maniac than a slighting' word to a novice about his beard. The actual shaving by a novice is just because he heard someone say that the more one shaves, the more one's beard grows to resemble Spooner's. A Z. N.'s kit consists of a double-sized tube of cream and a glass of sand. He puts a two-inch coating of cream over his face to hide the bogus whiskers, and takes a mouthful of sand. As he slides the bladeless razor over his face, he grinds the sand between his teeth and ejaculates, "Gad, but they're tough. Oh . . . ah . . . oh!" After shav- ing, he informs all his friends that he shaved. "Don't you think I look better?- It's such a nuisance! With a beard like mine . . ." In every group there is a non-shaver, more commonly referred to by people who know their shavers best as the "My Razor's Broke" or "I Just Can't Find Time" type. For months and months a M. R.'s B. will cuddle his little hairs. His visions are those of tugging thoughtfully at his Van Dyke in math class, or if giving his handle- bar one more jerk before making up his mind in Saywel1's. Ah yes, but the best he can do is tickle his fuzz. 'Tiz a cruel woild. News From University School The U. S. football schedule runs as fol- lows: Parma, Willoughby, Shaker, Parma, Berea, Cranbrook and Reserve. From all that we hear, they have a pretty tough team with the whole first-string and two second-string backfield men returning. U. S. beat Parma, 6-0, last Saturday. The soccer team has scheduled six games, two with Nichols, two with Oberlin and two with Reserve. 1 Mr. Clayton Beaver is the new swimming coach there, he will also assist in football. U.
