Page4 RESERVE R E C O R D September 21, 1944 Some Hints To the New Boys NE of the most difficult periods in any boy's stay at Reserve, is the first few months in which he must adj ust himself to his new environment and become accus- tomed to a life entirely unlike that which he has passed under the careful guidance and supervision of his parents in the relative privacy of his home. The problems which the new student is likely to meet are many-far too many and far too intricate to be dealt with or even partially solved without careful and com- plete consideration. ' However, a great number of these problems can cer- tainly be avoided if each boy will make an earnest effort to adjust himself properly and will view the masters not, as is so often the case, with a skeptical eye, but will con- sider them agents to assist this -important, primary ad- justment. Although it may indeed seem at times that the difficulties and labors in finding a suitable place at Re- serve far exceed the rewards and satisfactions, every boy First School Gathering Crowded With Action THE RESERVE RECORD Joel B. Hayden, D.D., Headmaster WESTERN RESERVE ACADEMY Hudson. Ohio will find that to enjoy life here calls for no more than a willingness to do so. Without an earnest application along this line, the search for an acceptable relationship becomes a difficult matter. At the beginning of last year, as soon as the first- year boys had accustomed themselves to the general school curriculum, there was a certain outstanding defi- cit strongly felt on behalf of the entire school. The greater portion of the new boys, instead of experiencing a genuine concern for the school and for the athletic teams, waited until the older boys pushed them into doing so or else merely stood aside and neglected this interest completely. This must not be repeated during 1944. It is necessary and vital that there be no boy, new or old, lacking in this respect. In brief, the senior class, the masters and the entire student body are anxious that each new student enter into every activity as enthusiastically as is possible with- out exceeding the limits which each must set for him- self.

After the lucky would-be members had pledged their oath, the whole school group moved to the gym where amid deafening shouts and cheers the new boys were pre- sented to either the Whites or Greens. Fol- lowing this annual event there was a series of stunts for old and new boys alike. Lastly, the free movie, "Ridin' High," was presented, after which everyone wel- comed his dormitory and bed. The whole program was a complete success. A great deal of this success can be attributed to the cooperation of the older boys in help- ing with every phase of the entertainment. n Among those who assisted with the pic- nic itself were Paul Ruedemann, Wayne Young, Rollie Cockley, Fred Dawson, Dave Nesbitt, Pete Fletcher, Roy Ober, Jim Cartoonist. . . .......... . ................

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.

September 21 , 1944 RESERVE RECORD Page5 "Coach" Habel Besides the seventy-seven new faces of the student body, there have also been five new masters added. One of these new per- sonalities of the faculty is Elmer A. Habel, our representative from South Carolina. A tall, good looking man, Mr. Habel has the face and drawl closely resembling Kay Kyser, with perhaps a more serious atti- tude. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, he spent an active ten years in Missouri, Texas, Georgia, and finally ended up in South Carolina, where he entered the sixth grade. In Spartanburg, South Carolina, he en- tered Frank Evans High School and soon proved his ability in athletics. He was captain of the baseball team and pitcher of the state-championship team that won 13 straight games one year. After a splen- did record not only in baseball but also in football and basketball, he followed this up by being captain of the state-champion- ship basketball team at Wofford College. He also had four years on the varsity in all three sports there. Although his pro- fession is teaching, Mr. Habel's main in- terest is athletics. He can remember that in high school, before he had made any positive decisions about a profession, he was interested in the Y.M.C.A. physical education program. This fall he is as- sistant coach of varsity football, and he hopes to continue through the year by coaching basketball and baseball. Mr. Elmer Habel After graduating from Wofford College in liberal arts, he waited five years and then married Mrs. Habel in 1932-Septem- ber fifth, to be exact-he recalls to his wife's amazement. Mr. Habel now lives in the apartment at the south end of Cutler. He teaches both first and third year mathematics, be- sides his various athletic activities.
