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-
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.

After graduating from Wofford College
in liberal arts, he waited five years and
then married Mrs. Habel in 1932-Septem-

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

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-

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-

really have some fun.
As it is now proposed, the rally band
would be under the supervision of the stu-
dents themselves. Giving up a small por-

Footballers Sport Weight, Speed as First Game
Approachesf Veterans, Letterman in Abundance
Although it is still too early in the sea-
son to predict definitely the team's future,
a brief review of the first team might shed
a little light for the newcomers to Reserve.
The first team, although it is still not
definitely set up, seems to line up pretty
well as listed here:
Bill "Root-en-toot" Hottenstein ably holds
down the left end of the hefty and heavy
eleven. "Root" played first team last year
easily winning his letter. Next door in the
tackle position 200 pounds of -Jack Brewer
fill any gaps that might occur in that part
of the line. Brewer likewise received his
"R" as a junior, missing first team last
season only because of the presence of
Laurie Dennett in that spot. Left guard
is again filled this year by Jim Howard, an-
other returning member of last year's
"Pablo" Brett, defense man supreme,
works off weight slowly this year at the
center spot. Pete displayes the world's
largest collection of murderous tackles and
never fails to use them. Small but effec-
tive Jim Gardner, known as the hardest-
hitting man on the team despite his 150
pounds, moves into the right guard posi-
tion this year with definite intentions of
remaining there. "Sandy" MacDonell re-
turns to the old right tackle spot that he
capably filled tlast year, with hope that this
year the temperature will be above freez-
ing when we play that gang in Cleveland.
Right end still remains wide open for com-
petition. The editor refuses to predict or
comment upon the outcome of this position
as it may go to anyone at any time. Bob
Tucker and Siddall seem to be the closest
contenders at the moment.
Moving into the backfield which this
year sports everything from size like Den-
nett to speed like Joslyn, the first man up
is "Doc" Timmis, diminutive quarterback
of the eleven. The "Doc" played second
string last year but missed his letter. Left
half Joslyn spent the winter learning those
plays he somehow misplaced last season
and now shows considerable haste behind
the line. That guy with the snake hips
that weaves all over the backfield is Jim
Roush, right half. Despite his lightness
Jim makes it considerably tough for tack-
lers, seeing to it that they don't put their
hands upon his rapidly-moving form. Last,
but not least, comes that towering mass
of hulk who heads up the fullback spot,
Laurie Dennett. Laurie played first string
tackle all last season and was acting cap-
tain in all but one game. He combines
fairly good speed with plenty of bulk and
may be 'counted on to plough under all
Among the outstanding second stringers
is John Atkinson, left guard and speed-
king of the whole outfit. "Hutch" Hutchin-
son strongly holds down the center of the
line while Dave Nicholson, Junior quarter-
back, shows very good indication of being
a red-hot player. Reservites may expect
to see him in a good many games. Ander-
son and Meek further speed up the second
string backfield with their lightfooted ways,
which have more than once left a towering
lineman slightly in doubt as to what just
As we stated in the beginning of this
little article, these positions are not abso-
lutely certain. This is merely the way
things stood when this went to press.
Saturday, the 30th, all Reserve will be
watching to see these guys beat Kent
leagues and lightweights
Rapidly Get Under Way
Once again Reserve has begun its full
athletic program. Until Monday only the
varsity football squad had been tramping
the green fields. On Monday all of Re-
serve's students reported to their respec-
tive sports. Some went to league soccer,
some to league football, and the remainder
to lightweight football.
The varsity soccer team has only four
games scheduled, but a goodly number of
hopeful new boys followed the returning
members of last year's squad onto the
field. Coaches Mickel and Roundy will
once again round the booters into shape
for the coming season.
In league soccer under the guidance of
Messrs. Cleminshaw, LaBorde and Auld,
the boys were put through a few exercises
before they were introduced to the differ-
ent ways to handle a soccer ball. No teams
will be chosen till the boys have been
rounded into fair condition. When the
games are being played there' will be five
teams, one of which will drop a day in
its turn and help about the campus or on
the neighboring farms. The work squad
program has not as yet been definitely de-
cided upon for this school year.
In league football the boys who turned
out were put through the usual routine
tortures before they began a rotating
game of tap football. The teams were
not definitely picked, as "Teb" must still
cut the varsity squad. The new cut will
greatly swell the ranks of the leaguers.
Under Mr. VVallace 'the light football
players also went through a conditioning
session before they swung into learning a
few fundamentals of the game.
As has been the custom every boy in
the school is required to take part in some
athletics each season. So far this plan
has proved' highly successful in keeping the
boys in good physical trim. This year will
not be an exception.
