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.

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.

Page 14 . RESERVE RECORD October 5, 1944 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 sport. 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. ,-1.-.igi 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 deadlock. 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 blew. Q t l 5' 155 if Q ik R V, 4 if - f LW' qjffvkr .1 :nf N EXT 1 Z qs, 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 with pass gave they 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 Roosevelt. i Laurie Dennett, Tackle
