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
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.

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
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
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
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
The boys who have already volunteered
are Wattleworth, S. Newell, Sheldon, Weick,
Bender, Maples, Bacon, Jones, Gerhouser,

mann, Swiler, Maxwell, Bruce Williams and
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.

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,

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

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
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.
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
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
News From University School
