October 5, 1944
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
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

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,

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.

Soccer Team Meets
Oberlin Marines Friday
The varsity soccer team will open its
four-game schedule tomorrow against the
Oberlin Marine Detachment at Oberlin.
With only two returning lettermen, Cock-
ley at half and Ruedemann at fullback, the
Green and White will be starting with an
inexperienced eleven. Spooner and Siddall,
lettermen from last year's team. will not
be playing because of injurv and a change
to football respectively. Thus the front
line has undergone a complete change.
On the line with game experience is Pete
Fletcher and Ben Stoltzfus, who comes to
us from Syria where soccer is a national
The probable lineup against the Marine
trainees will be: Pierce and Garrigan at
wings, Fletcher and Critchfield at the in-
side spots, Stoltzfus will hold down the cen-
ter forward place, Phillips, Cockley and
Young filling the halfback positions, Ruede-
mann and Reviere at fullback and Collins
in the goal.
first league Game Ends in
I4-I4 Deadlockp Austen Stars
The initial game in league football was
played Monday. Teams A and B under
coaches Scibby and Pflaum played their
first game on the upper field to a 14-14
The first score of the game was made by
the B eleven on an intercepted pass. A
quick retaliation to this sudden setback was
made by the A squad when Frank Austen
tossed a beautiful pass to Dave Hobart, who
in turn raced into the end zone. Hobart
also made the extra point.
In the second half the A team took the
lead when Ramsayer intercepted a pass and
weaved down the field for another six-
pointer. With a quick opening play off
tackle the A's put the extra point over.
Later, in the fourth period, the B team
started to roll. They pushed their way to
another touchdown by virtue of their quick
run backs. The score was tied at 14-14
when they crashed through center for their
second extra counter.
The A eleven had the ball on the
enemy's 30-yard line when the final whistle

Gridders Take Kent Roosevelt 24-I4, in First
Gamep Joslyn and Brett Star in Season Opener
Up until within three minutes of the end
of last Saturday's game with Kent Roose-
velt no true gambler would have put a
split nickel on the outcome. The Green
and White gridders had held a good lead
over their opponents throughout the length
of the game, but the Red and White of Kent
were gaining fast and furiously until Bob
Joslyn intercepted their last attempted pass
and went for six points, setting the final
score at 24-14 in the favor of Reserve.
Immediately upon receiving the kickoff
Kent fumbled and Reserve recovered the
ball. Jim Timmis smacked the opponents
right off with a flat pass to "Hott" who
went for ten yards. However, the mo-
mentary rush was halted, and the ball went
to Roosevelt on downs. They tried to run
our line, but the weight of Pablo, Dennett,
Howard and Brewer soon killed all hopes.
Upon their fourth down Kent tried to kick.
"Pablo" Brett, Center
The kicker was swamped by rushers averag-
ing something like 185 pounds with the
result that Reserve recovered for a safety
and two points.
After a few more minutes of play the
situation found Reserve on their own forty-
nine yard line, third down and seventeen to
go. Jos, kicking for Reserve this year,
placed one sweetly upon the opponent's two-
yard stripe, where it rolled out of bounds.
Once again the Kent Roosevelt team tried
to kick out, and once again Reserve
swamped the kicker and recovered the ball
for a safety.
Still in the first quarter Jos scored again
when he lugged the apple from the Roose-
velt forty-five to their three-yard line and
then easily pushed it over. Jim Roush
neatly placed the ball between the posts,
but it was called back on an offside pen-
alty, whereupon Jimmy did it again. The
score stood at the end of the first quarter:
Reserve 11, Kent Roosevelt 0.
The second quarter seemed to be well
provided with penalties and fumbling. In
fact nobody could be sure of any play until
the next one had started. Reserve's second
touchdown came midway in the second
quarter when Roush cut loose by carrying
the ball to the enemy nine-yard stripe.
"Doc" Timmis furthered it to the six' with
Jimmy Roush taking it over for six more
tallies. Jimmy repeated his booting to
raise the score to 18. Kent still could find
no holes in our defense until they tried
passing. Then a quick one in the Hat went
for six points for the Red and White with
the extra point being carried over. As the
half ended the score stood at 18-7 in the
Green and White's favor.
Kent came out with renewed enthusiasm,
the result that a quick triple-relay
in the beginning of the third quarter
them six more points. Once again
ran the extra one over. With the
score 18-14 and no sign of activity from
the home team for the past two quarters,
spectators on the sides were becoming
considerably worried. The third quarter
continued without serious threat by either
team. Finally, with three minutes left to
play in the game, the opponents were fight-
ing for their skins. A series of passes
had netted them considerable territory. Con-
sequently they threw one too- many. Jos-
lyn, having had three quarters to figure it
out, suddenly came tearing through one of
their passes, snagged it neatly, and took
off for sixty-five yards and a touchdown.
The point was missed this time, and the
game ended soon thereafter. The score
remained 24 for Reserve to 14 for Kent
