Page 2' RESERVE o R E C O R D A September 14, 1944 As We Begin . . . ' LTHOUGH the Handbook lists September 15 as the first day of the school year, in reality this is not strictly true. Much work has been done prior to the arrival of the students on the campus. Students who have set aside a week of their vacation period for foot- ball conditioning, those who have formed plans for the welcoming of new students and those who have prepared this, the first of our weekly Records, have made substan- tial contributions to the days that lie ahead. This, then, is a day upon which the remaining' students commence the work and play which together constitute our aca- demic year. Each one of you will be told more than once that these opening weeks are the most important of the whole year. It is for that reason that there has been a great deal of work expended to help the old and new boys get off to a good start. Those who are not new this year realize by this time the steps which must be taken to make this year both academically and athletically suc- cessful. It is important to the school and to each class that every returning andl every entering boy should measure up to the standards desired and required of him. The primary goal of the new boys may be briefly and basically stated in the following. Each must find his place in relation to his companionsg each must seek to make his best contribution in athleticsg each must re- solve to do his utmost in the field of studies. This ad- justment will determine for him the success or failure of the year. Let us mention here but one of Reserve's many tra- ditions. There has always been at the academy a most enthusiastic support of varsity teams. Without this, our record in sports will not be a good one, regardless, of the promise which the year may hold. A great deal was attempted during the 1943 seasons, but little was accom- plished along this line. This was due, not as many think, to the teams or the cheer leaders or to the poor rallies but to a lack of enthusiasm from the average Reservite. Keep in mind that a good athletic year is a good school year, and the greater part of our problems can and will be overcome. Strong line Turns Out as Football Season Opens Prospects for a successful football sea- son seem bright in the opinion of the coaches. Since the backfield lacks the weight and experience of former years, the team may be somewhat weak on offense. Roush, a former letterman of last year, along with Timmis, Arnold and Joslyn, have had previous experience behind the line. Nicholson is another survivor of the '43 season. If it is true that the offense doesn't look too bright, it may be said that the line looks particularly brilliant. We have lettermen in Brett, Dennett, Hottenstein, J. Howard, McDonnell, Brewer, as well as men of ex- perience in Gardner, Beal, Tucker, Martyn, Atkinson, Anderson, Hutchinson, Cameron, Silver, N. Howard, Perry Tanner, Kramer and Vaught. It is, however, hard to decide as yet for the crop of new boys is bound to yield someone, perhaps many, of ability. Signs point to a successful, perhaps a brilliant, season. Not much can be said as yet concerning the '44 soccer season because coaches Roundy and Mickel have not seen their material. There are, however, quite a num- ber of boys returning from last year's squad. Linemen John Siddall and Byron Spooner are lettermen, though the latter may not see action for some time due to a broken ankle. Peter Fletcher missed a let- ter by a narrow margin last year. Rollie Cockley returns to the backtield and while Collins has no letter to his credit, he has had considerable experience as a goal tender. There are also experienced material in Pierce, Friedman, Phillips, 'Carter and Scott. All in all, nine returning members is not abad start and with the addition of new prospects we should have a good season. THE RESERVE RECORD WESTERN RESERVE ACADEMY Hudson, Ohio Joel B. Hayden, D.

It was acquired in 1900 by the late James W. Ellsworth who had it installed in Evamere Hall in Hudson where it has remained until the present. Upon his death it was left to the academy. A ceremony was held at the chapel when the old bell had struck twelve on July 22. It was then removed from the tower where it had hung since 1853. It has tolled the hours since except for the period between 1903 and 1916 when the school was closed. The bell has been an intimate part of Hudson's history. It has called Reservites to four wars and has rung their welcome home. It has summoned to the gaiety of weddings and to the sorrow of death. The brief ceremony in July was conducted by Dean Wood and Sexton Harley Kuhn who has rung the bell since the last war. The crack that has been developing for some years had made a replacement neces- sary. Prefects, Council Members and Masters Meet lor Discussion On September 9 the prefects and mem- bers of the school council met with five faculty members to discuss and plan for the coming year. The agenda for the meeting included such points as: 1. Plans for receiving and welcoming the new boysg 2. Prefect supervision of returns from Sat- urday permitsg 3. U. S.-W. R. A. relationsg 4. Green-White sports. The purpose of the meeting was to give both the boys and masters' an idea of some of the things t6 be accomplished during this year.

Mr. Tepper plans to make nothing except the usual peace- time material, and will limit the products of the shop to handiwork. There will be, however, a machine shop activity, though what it will consist ol' is not yet clear. 'Old' New Bell Rings Over Reserve Campus Alter 91 Years oi Faithlul Service The Old Bell Struck Its last Hour h When Reservites returned today, they heard a clear but unfamiliar bell strike the hours. It is a bell new to Hudson, though in reality it is much older than its prede- cessor. The bell has had a very interesting past. It began its history in the little town of Walsheren in south Holland. The year was l 1 i Rctires after almost ct century of service 1611, 23 years after the Spanish hastily left the Netherlands. It was at this time that the Dutch decreed religious freedom for all. One of the favorite expressions of the Pilgrims who fied to Holland, "Soli Deo Gloria," is engraved about the upper part of the bell. Here also one reads the inscription, "John Bugerhuys made me, 1611." Beneath the above inscription are the words, "Die mynen nam wilt weten-Wester Souburgh binick gehetenf' "You who would know my name-Wester Souburgh I am calledf, Wester Souburgh weighs just 500 pounds, stands 25 inches high and has a diameter of 25 inches at the base. Between its manufacture in Holland and tContinued ou Page 2, Column 2j 77 New Boys Iain Reserve To Raise Stuclent Body to 215 The year of 1944-45 finds 215 boys at Re- serve, 77 of whom are new to the school.

Freshmen Gulick and Maples come from England, and Blakley, a junior, has lived in the Far East. Mich- aelides, a first-year boy, has lived in Greece.

Fred Gerhauser has had three brothers previous- ly in school and Charles Grant, two. John MacDonell, Charley Beale, Heath Oliver and Lee Haggerty all have brothers in school.

aesenzvls Econo VOLUME XXI No. 2 Class ol '44 in All Branches ol Service Mr. P. C. Roundy Checks on the Whereabouts ol the 1944 Class The activities in which the members of last year's class are now engaged, both civil and military, have not been compiled as yet. Mr. Roundy has tried by means of post cards to find out what branch of the service each boy has entered or the college which he is now attending. It will prob- ably be about a month or six weeks before definite word is received from all the graduates. When this has been completed, we shall have a more complete report. However, at the present time we have some idea of the services and colleges most of the boys are in. There may, of course, be errors herein since some may have failed to pass the qualifications necessary for re- maining in the V-12, the Air Corps or the colleges to which they have gone. Herewith is a list of the colleges to which the boys were expecting to go at the end of last year: Bakker, Oberlin, Bardelmeier, Williams, Beckley, Case, Cad- well, Williams, Gregory, Case, Hamann, Case: Johnson, Caseg Linforth, Purdue, Shaw, U. of Arizonag Sisson, Dartmouth, Weeks, Purdue, Whitacre, Notre Dame. Four boys were accepted in the Naval Air Corps. They were: Broockman, Hanson, Manlove and Bailey. Five were accepted in the Army Air Corps: Burns, Robinson, Co- hill, Oliver and Fullerton. Nine passed tests for radio technician school. The ones that have been taken or waiting for induc- tion are: Baxter, Cleminshaw, Dowling, Freer, Lane, Rodman, Yardley, Morrow and Reed. Williams is in the Marine Corps and Shepard is in the Tank Corps. The rest of the boys are waiting for selective service except 16, who were able to go to college. These are: Eells and Oseland, Bowdoin, Smith, Ginsburg, R. Perry, Col- lopy and Blanco, Harvard, Fletcher, G. Perry, Bunn and Hanmer, Yale, Wells and White, Princetong Cummins, Lehigh, Solon, U. of Michigan. Some interesting facts about the class of '44 that should be mentioned are that three or more boys were accepted in each of these colleges: Case, Cornell, Harvard, Michigan, Oberlin, Princeton, U. of Penn- sylvania, Yale and Williams. Most of them are unable to attend them though, because of military service. Also out of 150 col- lege board tests, 130 of them were far above average. Fwst Lieutenant Dan Hanna 4 ll' If lt. Dan Hanna Killed On Bombing Mission Word has been received from the War Department of the death in combat of First Lieut. Dan Hanna of Willoughby, Ohio. He was originally reported missing on May 12, and the confirmation of his death was received on September 10. The story of the engagement is not clear. It is thought that the Fortress which he was flying was returning from action over France. He was schooling a green pilot at the time and was acting as co-pilot of the ship. Trouble suddenly developed, and Lt. Hanna gave the orders to bail out. All of the crew members with the exception of the bombadier were later rescued. Lt. Hanna had been a member of the Flying Corps for the past two years. Dan was a student of Western Reserve from September 1936 to June 1940. Dur- ing all this time he was one of the most popular boys in school. It is the judgment of those of the faculty who knew him that he made friends easily. In athletics he won letters in football, hockey and base- ball and played in other sports as the op- portunity arose. ' Upon leaving Western Reserve, he at- tended Phillips Andover Academy in And- over, Mass., and later Williams College. His step-brother, James Newell, is a mem- ber of the present junior class. HUDSON, OHIO, SEPTEMBER 2I, I944 First Vesper Service Marks Dedication of New Chapel Bell The lirst Vesper Service of the school year was held on Sunday, September 17, at 5 p. m. in the chapel. Dr. Hayden's talk stressed the importance of tradition in the life of the academy and made clear the ine escapable bonds which link us all to the past and the future. To this end, he called upon all the new boys to find their places in the daily life of the school and begin their contributions as sons of Western Re- serve. The service also marked the dedication of the "old" new bell. It was tolled at the conclusion of the service with the prayer that it might ring for many years over a world of.peace and concord. A record of this service was made in order that it may be preserved in the historical records of the academy. The substance of Dr. Hayden's talk was based on a letter received in late June from Lt. Alfred L. Rideout, 514 Fortress Bomber Squadron. The le er speaks for itself and the RECORD re oduces it here: 514 Ftr. Bomber Squadron 406 Bomber Group, APO 141 cfo Postmaster New York City, New York. 13 June, 1944. Dear Dr. Hayden: Now that I am not so busy as I have been for the past few days, I feel that I must write you a note expressing my sin- cerest gratitude for an inspiration which I received through Western Reserve Academy during the most critical hours of my life. D-Day morning, the mail orderly handed me a letter from Western Reserve Academy. In it was an invitation to a commencement which had occurred a week before and a picture of the chapel. For a brief moment I forgot the present and was a student again, thinking only of Virgil and the coming dance. I looked at the chapel a little more closely and recalled that within its an- cient walls there was a cross. Before this cross, Columbus had knelt to pray before his embarkation upon a journey whose end revealed a great new world. I like to think that in a small and hum- ble way history was repeating itself, and that we of Reserve who have prayed be- fore that cross and are now engaged in the greatest of all conflicts will someday find a better world for those who will fol- low. In closing, I want to restate my appre- ciation for the insipration from Reserve and assure- you that until I can again walk upon the campus in peace, I will carry the little picture of the chapel which is the symbol of everything that is fine in the land I love. Respectfully yours, Alfred L. Rideout.
