Although the following seniors lacked the required credits for graduation, two were accepted in college, two joined the armed services and the fifth transferred to another secondary academy. Haze Arnold entered Kenyon College, Charles Blakney enrolled in Williams, Ron- nie Cameron joined the Marines and Wayne Young enlisted in the U. S. Navy. Eric Heckett has transferred to Hill School. Among the underclassnien Bob Bender now goes to U. S., Phil Norris is enrolled at Staunton Military Academy and Bill Pierson enters Central High in Akron. Tom Swiler goes to Shaker High. Calvin Beal, president of the sophomore ll New Students Enrolleclf Reserve Celebrates 20th Anniversary as Boys' Preparatory School fi kms Qzlg. x K,-L class, is enrolled in Choate School.

For the remainder of the year the Siam Club members hold their numerous sessions in secret. Neither the Record nor the Senior Annual is permitted to publish the procedures of this organiza- tion. The senior members of the club, chosen at the beginning of last year, will don the formal costumes of the Siamese for the selection and initiation of the new mem- bers. Dean Mickel, given the title of High Potentate by the Kralahome of the Siamese government, will preside over the meeting. The music for the ceremony will sound strange and weird, but it is in accordance with old Siamese customs. Before the Siam Club meeting there will be a steak roast by the water tower at the rear of the Athenaeum. The "R" Club has planned an entertaining program at the close of the selection of Green and White members. After the "R" Club program "Laura," starring Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews, will be shown. Just 20 years ago this fall Western Re- serve Academy dropped the coeducational system of teaching to become strictly a boys' college preparatory school. This year 71 boys will enter to bring the total enroll- ment to 212. It is strange to report the fact that there are no freshmen coming from Cleve- land, O., this year. Ten of the first-year men come from Akron. They are John Anderson, Bill Fuller, Theodor Herwig, Tom Lewis, Don Mell, Walter Miner, Albert Myers, Alex Post, John Rechsteiner and Howard Walker. From Chagrin Falls come two boys, Rollin DeVere and Robert Peter- son. Bill Sharp, Jack Timmis, Dan Win- gard and Ed Winslow make up the delega- tion from Cuyahoga Falls. Two boys claim Gates Mills as their home. They are George Williams and Tom Woods. The four from Hudson are John Murphy, Doug Read, Tom Swanston and Carlton Weiden- thal. Joe Weber comes from Barbertong John Rossfeld from Limag David Simmon, Londong Bill Taylor, Painesvilleg Sonny Jones, Toledog Edward Dewey, Willoughbyg and John Burgeson, Youngstown. Three freshmen come from places located outside the state. They are Walter Brassert from Bloomneld, Ind., Leland Johnson and Roger Marshall from New York, N. Y. John Nicholson comes from Johannesburg, South Africa. There is a very large group of new sophomores this year-21 altogether. As there are no freshmen coming from Cleve- land there are no new sophomores coming from Akron. There are also two sets of twins in the second-year group, John and Richard Kaufman from Cleveland and Charles and Frank Cory from Lima. The rest of the boys from Cleveland are John Bukovnik, Frank Gibson, Jim James, Alan Krause, Sheldon Rench, Wi-lbur Smith, Rob- ert Snyder and Laurence Stifel. Paul Ho- bart comes from Chippewa Lake, Jack Tanner, Daytong Denny Brown, Hudsong Richard Daily, Irag Robert Bronfen, Lima, Larry Siddall, Oberlin, and Carl Gebhardt, wontinuod on Page 4, Column 33 Page 2 RESERVE RECORD September 13, 1945 THE RESERVE RECORD Published every Thursday during the school year by the students of Western Reserve Academy, Hudson, Ohio Joel B.

Registration Day, 1945, is the one hun- dred and twentieth opening day of school to occur on this campus. For these many years the footsteps of class after class have echoed through these ancient halls. mere saplings at the time of the building the great elms which today. We are, in of Middle College are shade our many walks reality, living in the past as we prepare for the future. In all the opening days there probably has never been a more fitting occasion for thanksgiving than at the present time. The years previous to V-J Day were years of anguish and sacrifice-times when the day of commencement was followed by immedi- ate military service. How thankful we are that that day has passed, and that soon our graduates can once again plan for a happy and normal college life. With war- time restrictions relaxed we may hope that this year will be one of the best ever at Reserve. To our newcomers this day marks the beginning of a novel and rather complicated life. We who have become familiar with the routine can well remember the dazed feeling that occupied us as we began our activities here. We were rushed from fioor to floor at the rining of a bell. It was hard to concentrate in study halls. We had no friends to confide in, a merit score to worry about. When it came to doing our home- work, we found that there we1'en't quite enough hours in the day. Fortunately, however, our confusion wasn't of long standing. Gradually we learned the ropes and discovered that edu- cation at Reserve means-besides good old- fashioned hard work-much in the satisfac- tion of accomplishment and many happy days on which we will long reflect. Welcome: OR 71 boys this will be the first year at Western Reserve Academy. Acting for the 141 members of the student body who have spent at least one year on the campus the Reserve Record takes this op- portunity to bid you welcome. If there is one primary lesson which the first issue of the Record might point out, it is this: Whatever one makes of himself depends entirely upon himselfg it is entirely' up to him. Just as a river can never rise higher than its source, so a boy can never expect to take from Reserve more than he is will- ing to contribute. This coming year will be a good one if each does his best to make it sog it will be a good one not only for each boy indi- vidually, but for the school as a whole. A school functions on a reciprocal basis, and all benefits are mutual. WITHOUT RESERVE ...-, Every year a few weeks before school ' ' starts, the mail begins l' bringing giant enve- ' lopes upon which the words "WESTERN t H 1 1 RESERVES ACAD- ! ' EMY" are prominent- ? ly printed. The ap- 0 ' if lf ' proved way of dealing with said envelopes is if to place them gently " f"1i f-- in an incinerator and -v watch them burn. How- ever, if one does decide he needs a week's reading matter and opens them, he is apt to find the following: 1. A little reminder that no student may step on the campus unless he has been checked over at the Mayo Clinicg either had his teeth all pulled or filledg and has taken out all eight kinds of tuition and athletic insurance. 2. A note telling him that his little brother's name is Abdul Samarr, that he lives in northeastern Mesopotamia, and that he speaks nothing but Arabic. CThis means his next two weeks are spent in night school so he can translate the handbook for him.J 3. A verbal floor plan of his room. "Your room is in the shape of an inverted trapezoidical sphere, so plan your rug ac- cordingly. There is a small high window fbarred, to keep out undesirable prowlersj which opens on a beautiful portion of the campus which the students fondly call "Searchlight Row." 4. And finally a list of required wearing apparel: "one black suit for dances, one pair of hip boots for misty days . . ." This, of course, is omitting little details like the twelve pages of new rules on din- ing-room behavior and the book entitled Q Held in :Rewufe Saturday, September 15-8:00-11:15, all classes start following regular Monday schedule 125-minute periodsjz All school as- sembly in study hall at 11:30.

Throughout the coming year I shall try to point out the humor of Reserve life in my own in- imitable fashion. First arrivals back on the old "lawn's wide sweep" were the football expectants around whom this year's team will be molded. I don't want to make any predic- tions, but if "Sully" will take oft' his "loaf- ers and bobby socks" and play football, and if "Jos" will give up the female of the species and attend all the practices we may have a good season. That, however, is in the "lap of the Gods." We're in for the same old stuff again this year--no pie a la mode, porterhouse steak or house parties. Yes, even though the war's over those changes won't be made. Scuttlebutt has it that the excuse which is destined to strike fear into the hearts of all Reservites is RECONVER- SION. Yes, sir, they've got us coming and going. "Gentlemen, the cosmic picture is a little hazy, but as far as I can see, the chips are down and we're trapped in the upper room!" I would like to be serious long enough to welcome the new arrivals to Re- serve. Torn away from their mother's apron strings, they will find out what the outside world is like. And the rest of us here would like to know, too. "This is a fine school iQuiet, Graham!! and you boys now have an opportunity to profit greatly here." QText of numerous speeches to be heard by new boys in approximately five student gatheringsj And so I greet you, new men of Reserve. Watch out for the merit score. Or as Bob "the haircut" Garfield once said, "Yipel" B. H. W. "Scientific Approach to the Merit Score." As for me, it's the incinerator method every time. G. V- September 13, 1945 R E S E R V E R E C O R D Page 3 Four Appointments Made to Eacultyp Two to Executive Staflp .. d Mr. Edwin Ellis Returns to Full-Time Positron ut Aca emy Each year brings changes in Reserve's faculty, just as it does in her student body. The masters who join Reserve's 1945-46 staff come to replace those who have been called into military service or who have accepted positions elsewhere. This fall the mathematics department will welcome its newest instructor, Mr. William J. Barr. Mr. Barr has taught history and mathematics at Stow High School for the past 19 years. He was also athletic di- rector at Stow and will assist Mr. Theibert in athletics here at Reserve. Mr. Barr holds degrees from Ohio University and the University of Akron. A newcomer in the language department is Mr. Samuel F. Husat. Mr. Husat is a graduate of Mount Union College and holds the degree of Master of Arts from the University of Michigan. He will teach Latin at Reserve, though he is also a com- petent instructor in German, French and Spanish. , Instructor in manual arts this year will be Mr. William Moos, Jr. Mr. Moos is a graduate of St. John's University in Min- nesota and has done graduate Work at the St. Cloud Teachers College and the Uni- versity of Wisconsin. He replaces Mr. Otis Wheeler. Mr. Mounir Sa'adeh comes to Reserve as instructor of history and religion. Mr. Miss Mary Geoppert Marries On August 29 Miss Mary Geoppert, now Mrs. John Litzell, was married in the Academy chapel by the Rev. Ray- mond Burns. Mrs. Litzell's husband, a sergeant in the U. S. Army, is stationed at Camp Cook in California. Sgt. Litzell returned recently from the European war theatre where he served six months with the 20th armored divi- sion in the Third and Ninth Armies. Three Elected to Cum laude For Scholastic Achievements At the final meeting of Cum Laude held in ea1'ly June three members of the class of 1946 were elected to membership in the society. Since these boys, Tom Clarke of Cleveland, Terry Garrigan of Akron and Herb Gleason of Cohassett, Mass., are the first to be selected from the present senior class, they represent the highest attainment of scholarship among the seniors for the past three years. All of these honored are active in cam- pus life. Among other activities each is serving as a prefect in Athenaeum. Ini- tiations will be held in the near future. Sa'adeh is a graduate of the American University, Beirut, Syria. He has taught history and ethics at the International Col- lege of the American University for 15 years, working on both college and sec- ondary levels. At present Mr. Sa'adeh is enroute to the United States from Europe. He is expected to arrive about October 1. Miss Helen L. Hayes will join the in- firmary staff, accepting the position vacated by Mrs. Gerig. She is a graduate of the Brooklyn Training School for Nurses and has had graduate training at a New York hospital. Since that time she has acquired several years' nursing experience in the Cleveland area. Miss Marion Beth Kelly will assume the duties of Mrs. Eilbeck, former school li- brarian. Miss Kelly is a graduate of the School of Library Science at Syracuse University. She has had experience in this Held at the Youngstown Public Library and at the library of the University of Pittsburgh. . Mr. Edwin L. Ellis returns to Reserve after a year's absence in war work. Mr. Ellis will teach physics, will again coach Reserve's wrestling team, and assist in other athletics. He is a graduate of Da- vidson College. Alter Eight Years 'on Campus Mrs. Gerig Leaves After Hve years' experience in the Akron City Hospital Mrs. Robert Gerig began her service to Reserve in 1937. Since that time she has labored continuously and faithfully as one of the nurses at Hobart House. It is with a genuine feeling of sadness that by her own decision the student body is forced to say goodbye to one who has made such an important contribution to the welfare of the campus. Mrs. Gerig's husband has recently re- ceived an honorable discharge after three years of service in North Africa and Europe with the United States Army. While we shall all regret the departure of Mrs. Gerig from the life of Reserve, we take this op- portunity to wish for her and Mr. Gerig every happiness in the days that are ahead. ,.-..-,.-..---.-,.-,.-.-.---.,-..-.-. 1 i T.

Maior Problems of School Delruted at Early Meeting Last Monday at the University Club in Cleveland the annual meeting of the pre- fects and senior members of the council was held for the purpose of discussing the major problems of the school and their remedy. The senior members of the council, the prefects and certain masters assembled at the club and adjourned to a private dining- room. The meeting was called to order by a chicken dinner, but soon the business of the day was considered. Dr. Hayden sum- marized what had been done with the "Big Brother" idea and asked for suggestions for improvement. After all was settled, questions were raised from the floor on various matters concerning the conduct of the school. The problem of late Saturday permits was talked over, but the real deci- sion was placed with the council. Ques- tions also arose concerning the study hall prefects, the house party and inter-clorm sports. New ideas were proposed for a suggestion box and for a student day. How- ever, all of the things discussed were for the most part in the stage of infancy wait- ing to be matured by the student council and prefects.

Page 4 RESERVE RECORD September 13, 1945 39 Turn Out for Pre-School Football Practice: Five 'R' Men Return from '44 Squad On Friday afternoon, September 7, the long-deserted practice fields of Reserve again welcomed the eager shouts and run- ning feet of pre-school football practice. In the warm fall sunshine Coach Theibert administered a brisk calisthenic workout to the squad, a drill punctuated with grunts and groans as soft muscles were suddenly put to work. A large crowd of 39 candi- dates turned out for this first practice of the season, and perspiration Howed freely during the workout. A look over the multitude reveals several returning lettermen from last year's squad. Nicholson, Roush, Joslyn, Vaught and Howard won their football letters last year. In addition to these veterans there are members of last year's squad and league members plus new Reservites who are all fighting for the 11 positions on the team. As the situation now stands, Shepherd is in the center position, Kaylor and Dewey at guards, Miller and Kramer at tackles, Vaught and Howard at ends, Nicholson in the quarterback spot, Sullivan and Roush at halfback and Joslyn in the fullback posi- tion. This lineup is not definite as the squad has been practicing only a few days, and many of the positions are still places of contention. Since Friday the team has had two drills a day and a chalk-talk each evening. Stiff muscles and fatigue resulted from the first few days of peppy workouts, but now the boys are toughening up with calisthenics, running drills and blocking practice in pre- paration for a hard season. "Teh" is now being aided on the coaching staff by Messrs. Habel and Ellis who helped pilot the squad last year. Dave Owen, four-year letterman in football at Reserve, is also here temporarily to help coach. Although the team looks fairly light, it possesses plenty of the fight and enthusi- asm which makes a ball team. The squad's first action will be on foreign soil at Kent Roosevelt on the 29th.

The team has a much harder schedule lined up for this year than it has had for the last few seasons. Besides the two games scheduled with University School, Teb is planning and is quite sure that Oberlin College will battle twice with Reserve hooters. Since the team went to Shadyside last year it is expected that Shadyside will play a return engage- ment on home soil. It is not definite yet, but Mr. Roundy's squad may have a chance to play Shadyside's team twice during the season. , This year there are at least six returning lettermen. Five more have had at least a year's experience on the varsity soccer squad but failed to receive their letters. The front line has four returning "R" men, Nichols, Kennedy, Critchfield and "Mac" Pierce. Terry Garrigan, who played left wing last season, transferred to the foot- ball squad. Bud Ryan played a great deal last season in the front line and will prob- ably make the first squad. In the halfback positions there are three returning veterans, two lettermen. Phillips and Newell, the "R" men, will probably hold down the outside positions while Dan Collister fills the center position vacated by last year's captain, Rollie Cockley. Glen Carter is the only veteran fullback on the team. His possible assistant will be John Miller. The important position of goalie is still open with many prospects, all with equal chances. Last year's soccer team made quite a rec- ord for itself. It would be fine if this year's squad could improve its record. 7l New Stuclents Enrolled . . . lContinued From Page I, Column 33 Toledo.

I F RESERVE Steak Roast, Siam Club Initiations, Stunts And Movie Break Ice lor 1945-46 School Year Last Saturday at'ternoon the annual pic- nic and steak roast was held. At about 5:30 after the workers had eaten their quota, the students and faculty had the oppo1'- tunity of tasting the cooking of those two eminent chefs, Monsieur LaBorde and Herr Auld. Beside the allotment of two delec- table, mouth-watering steak sandwiches per person. there were potato salad, sliced to- matoes. pickles, mustard, onions, milk and coffee, and to complete the supper ice cream bars. a little warm but none the less good, were passed out to an eager throng. While people were trying to enjoy their desserts and gossip with their friends, a disturbance arose near the campfire which upon closer investigation turned out to be singing. A few of the more well-known ballads were mutilated before Tebhy could inferccde. After giving a brief review of the pros- pects of our football team. the honorable Mr. Theibert introduced the equally honor- able Mr. Raymond Mickel. Chief Potentate of the Siam Club.

Austen, Ayers, Milligan, Dewey, Kramer, Newell, Nicholson. Jim Miller and Vaught. Sixteen young men were invested into this secret organization after participating in the simple initial ritual. Several of the unfortunates have since tried to gain en- trance to the club. Following the outdoor program everyone moved to the gymnasium where the choos- ing of Green and White members ensued. Roth teams thought they had gotten the best of the bargain and exhibited their enthusiasm by means of cheering, organ- ized and otherwise. Soon the teams had a Cll?1llCC' to prove their worth in a series of contests organized by Messrs. Ellis, Wil- liams and Moos. The first involved knock- ing onc's opponent. oft' an overturned wastebasket by means of a padded pole. The second consisted of pressing a slice of jam-covered bread into the blindfolded countenance of' the opposing Green or White in an effort to make him eat it. This proved futile. due to the fact that both youths kept their mouths tightly shut. It was found that the Whites' representa- tColtinued on Page 7, Column Il Improvements Made in Cutler Common Room Ever since the common room in Cutler Hall was completed in 1936, no purchase of new furniture has been made. When the room was remodeled, furniture was contributed by a number of families in Cleveland. Since the furniture was not very sturdy, it has depreciated to such an extent that Dr. Hayden and Mr. Waring decided last year that a complete replacement or re-upholstering of all the the furniture in the room was necessary. During the summer the school has been working with a firm of decorators in Cleve- land. A plan of the room as it will appear when completed has been made and may be seen in the common room. Many of the new pieces of furniture have already ar- rived. The senior coffee room has been refurnished and over a dozen of the new chairs are in the common room at present. Four large cabinets have been ordered and should be here shortly. Two of these will contain the phonograph and the Carnegie record collection. The other two will be for china. This project is, of course, a very ex- pensive one. In spite of the fact that dur- able as well as attractive furniture has been chosen, it will not stand up unless it is treated with care. When completed, the common room will be a dignified place to entertain guests, as well as a place 01' which every boy in the school may be proud. Fireworks, Square Dancing and Parade Featured at Hudson Festival Last Saturday night the town of Hudson hold its annual Fall Festival. The cele- bration began with a parade which started at Chapel Street on the Reserve campus. Featured in the parade were police cars from the Summit County Sheriff's Ofiice and the Cleveland Police Department, sev- eral fioats from the town, the Hudson High School band and the Parmadale Orphans' band. The parade went down College Street, through town, and finally came back to its starting point to disband. Later in the evening there was a square dance and fireworks. At the same time the Flower Show and the Hobby Show were open to the public. Unfortunately, only the parade and the concessions open in the afternoon could be enjoyed by the Reserve boys.

Franklyn S, Reardon Once Again- School Spirit 4 ACH year at this time it is customary for the RECORD to publish an editor- ial on school spirit. There have been many suggestions made to encourage school spirit -compulsory attendance at all athletic events, discontinuance of inter-scholastic sports and the use of the merit score. Pre- vious upper classes have resorted to force to bring boys to the games. All these methods raise the attendance at the various contests, but school spirit is not necessarily enhanced. Instead of attempting to build school spirit around athletics alone, pe1'haPS we might try other avenues of approach. A well-planned period from Saturday n0OIl through Sunday night might prove more di- verting than Cleveland and Akron enter- tainment. Cooperative adventures by vari- ous clubs and organizations will provide avenues of expression and periods of en- joyment for the entire student body. Now that the food situation has been somewhat relieved, it may be possible for the upper classes to have a house party. This would encourage boys to remain on the campus. Last year the junior class with the help of several seniors and underclass- men put on a play. Picnics similar to the one last Saturday evening could be planned. The senior stunt night last year was en- joyed by all. This also could be modified to require a little less work, but still fur- nish adequate entertainment. Glee Club and octet programs should be planned. Inter-class, inter-dorm and faculty-student games furnish good Sunday morning en- tertainment. These suggestions together with others which can be made will go a long way to- ward making our week ends more interest- ing and at the same time boosting our school morale. Two Roads OW that you've weathered the first few days of school, you who are new to Reserve can see that homework will oc- cupy the major part of your out-of-class time. The change from carefree grammar school life to the upper levels of education is not an easy one. You have probably been accustomed these past few years to leaving school for the evening and not hav- ing to open your books again until school reopens the following day. Such, however, is not the case in high school, particularly at a school whose scholastic standards are as high as those of Reserve. An oft-quoted motto is "Work Before Pleasure." Facing the fact that one can expect large assignments which will re- quire much study, you can form a strategy with which you can meet the situation. There are two possible methods. Either you get your work out of the way before taking part in outside activities, or you have your fun first and try to accomplish your work in the remaining time. You can see, of course, that the former system is that which the school recommends. Now, what are the reasons for this? Explanation. of the advantages of this system are easy to list. You've often heard the Biblical advice, "As ye sow, so shall ye reap." If you allow your work to slide, you will soon Hnd yourself in difficulty. Your work will be supervised, you will be -forced to attend all study halls, and your privileges will be greatly curtailed. What you may have gained at first in fun you will lose, and, moreover, you will be forced to give up some of the ordinary advan- .tages afforded Reservites. If, on the contrary, you make it a prac- tice to tackle your nightly assignments be- fore Hrunning out with the boys" and give these your best efforts, you may win rec- ognition which will entitle you to more free time and special privileges. The choice is yours. bluat ton the CReconcll Your old scribe begs the humble forgive- ness of the faculty and all Reservites for his reference to "the same old stuff" to eat. It seems that a new order has been re- cently put into effect in the kitchen. How- ever, those who are supposed to be in the know are wagering odds of 8 to 5 that this new order is just for the benefit of the new boys and will not continue much lon- ger. Well, we'll see. The new boys seem to be pretty well set- tled as we near the end of the first week of school. One innocent young lad approached me a few days ago with: "Do freshmen have to wait on tables?" I just didn't have the heart to tell him. And, of course, about ten flower-pots and other miscel- laneous items arrive in the kitchen at the end of each meal. Stu "You're-wrong, Williams, I-shave-on- Tuesdays-now" Leeb has asked me to pub- lish the fact that he is not a freshman! It LUI'l'ilUU'l 'lL"i"'lVE N I " U E. I There have been 4 .--- I "blues songs" written 3 I, I f about practically every known thing, one of the most famous of which is the "St. James Infirmary Blues." This song strikes right at the heart of every "old boy," as we have our own, "Hobart House Blues." To incoming Reservites it is a re- fuge to which one turns when suffering from an overdose of the choice Reserve foods, headaches or football injuries. To old boys it is more than that. lt is a place where you can get the one thing that war shortages failed to capture -band-aids As an illustration let us follow Philmore Nubbins, Reserve's Joe Bonomo, as he in- nocently strolls down the basement stairs of this brick citadel. The second he steps inside the door he is whisked into a little room, told to strip to the waist and wait until the nurse on duty arrives. Exposing his manly chest he strolls over to a mirror, flexes his muscle, sighs, and reluctantly sits down. After several hours of waiting, the nurse comes in. 'D 1 lp M s I y ft' in , Y . "Now, then, what's your trouble, little boy?" "Well, I-er-have a slight headache, but that isn't what I--aaaagh!!!" And before you know it, our hero is flat on his back on an operating table, his head all fixed up with a nice band-aid and mercurochrome. But that isn't all. Somehow or other nur- sie has, discovered that Philmore once had a sore throat. This accounts for the vio- lent feeling there, somewhat comparable to the sensation of having one's neck forced through a meat grinder. Nubbins opens his mouth to protest, but the only things that come out are his teeth. In a mad rage he pounds his hand on the side of the table, slightly bruising his little finger. Bingo- -another band-aid. And then something in Philmore's mind snaps, and the next thing anyone knows, Philmore is sitting on the water tower, chewing' famid grunts and snarlsj on an old football shoe. And so in ending, let me lend a word to the wise. Whenever you are compelled to go to the infirmary, put on an air of nonchalance until you get past the door. N. H. seems he was not accorded the proper re- spect in previous meetings with the younger boys. Once again Oscar Garfield II, in close -collaboration with James "The Nose" Mil- ler, comes up with the best song of the week: "Oh, you can't get to heaven in 'J. C.'s' hack, 'cause the gosh-dern thing won't bring you back!" B. H. W. September 20, 1945 RESERVE RECORD Page 7 Saturday Night Entertainment . . 1Contlnued From Page 5. Column Zi The Chefs tive had more wind when he blew all the flour out of a bowl before his Green ad- versary had a chance to take a breath. However, the Greens made up for this close decision by taking the next event. This contest was between a blindfolded Green and a White likewise blindfolded. With a piece of sponge rubber each contestant, ly- ing on the floor at half a towel's length, tried to swat the other, locating his adver- sary by the direction of his voice. To close the game session two men were se- lected from each side to push a baseball across the gym floor with their noses. Big Jim Miller of the Greens beat the other contestants by a nose. When custodian Theibert had cleaned up the door, the movie was ready to begin. After the playing of the "Star-Spangled Banner," "Laura" was shown with quips and explanations by Jack Melcher, who was later quieted by public demand. The evening was indeed a suc- CPSS.

Their only immediate acquaint- ances a m o n g the boys are the students in their classes and at their dinner ta- bles. Therefore the RECORD begins with this issue an intro- duction of Re- scrve's new fac- ulty. W i 1 l i a m Moos, Jr.,comes from St. Cloud, M i n n e s o t a, attended school. Majoring in architecture, he spent four years at St. John's University and one at the University of Minnesota. Since then he has done various types of work, all per- taining to architecture. At Reserve he will teach industrial arts, besides offering his invaluable experience to all students interested in his Held or kindred subjects. In his room on the second Hoor of Cutler are just a few photographs-examples of his hobby, photography. He is interested in everything connected with architectural plan, even the composition of a news sheet. He has also studied large scale planning- modern cities and the like. IVilliam Moos, Jr. where he was born and In explaining why he came to Reserve, Mr. Moos said that the pleasure he gets from teaching boys of high school age had a great deal to do with it. Mr. Moos is a young man of medium height and weight with curly brown hair and a closely knit body. His manner is friendly and cordial, and his good.sense of humor is a strong asset in his favor. ,M ,,,, ..f cg? fQi ,, 5 . X-'fl ff 1 ,197 jx!! 9 xl , :fx ,Ill .1 X , K o Q ill 'W al ..Q, ff!

Everyone had plenty of pep but a rather noticeable lack of condition slowed up the scrimmage. The turnout uncovered some promising newcom- ers to the squad as well as the returning lettermen and their cohorts on last year's squad. In every division of the team there seems to be a strong foundation. Glenn Carter will again hold one of the fullback positions. The halfs also are well represented by members of last year's squad. Skip Newell is again out for right half and Corky Phillips, another veteran, will probably take over in the center position left open by ex-captain Rollie Cockley. There will be a lot of hot competition for the halfback spots. Dan Collister and Bill Cleminshaw, two other prospects, are both back from last year's team. The line is, as usual, crowded with new and old material. Kennedy will probably be the center and starting point for the new line. The wing positions are open to several prospects, Mac Pierce and Terry Garrigan on the right and Rich Nichols on the left. It seems, however, that most of the wing men on the previous year's squad are trying to get the job on the 1'ight fiank. Chuck Critchfield returns again to the right inside spot. He will receive plenty of competition from Tom Clark and Bill Marton. On the left Paul Russell and Dave Sheldon seem to be in front in stiff' compe- tition. On the whole, the squad showed up well. Fairly soon 'Coach Roundy is expecting t0 have a well organized team. illi-i 'Among Rescrve's present crop of ath- letes is one James Roush, "R" Club and varsity board member. Although his ml' merous wrest- Q ling triumphs overshadow his other abilities, Jim does parti- cipate in other sports. About this time of year, we of Re- serve begin to recall just how well Jim plays football. Right halfback and "iron man" of last year's team, the "Peninsula Flash" is counted on to lend power to this year's squad and help lift it out of the cellar in which it has too long resided. Wishing him and all the other members of the team the best of luck, we tip our hats to "R" man Jim Roush. J 'im Roush, Kent Roosevelt Game ls But Nine Days Awayp Football Squad Enters Third Week's Practice Just two weeks ago, prospective candi- dates for the 1945 football team churned over the turf in the first workout of the season. Since then the squad has been giv- ing "all it's got" during the long prac- tices that coaches Theibert, Ellis, and Ha- bel have been directing. Extensive drills of calisthenics and running have turned stiff, aching bodies into tough, lithe, human machines prepared to take the hard exer- cise and physical beatings that are part and parcel of America's fall sport. The boys have taken everything that the coaches could throw at them and have come back for more with peppy shouts and renewed vigor. Short scrimmages have given the team a taste of action and an opportunity to apply the coaching it has received. Be- side numerous bruises and scratches, the squad has sustained very few bad injuries, and it hopes to keep up this record. Some potentials for the line-up are pointed out in the following review. George "glue fingers" Vaught seems to be holding down the right end position very success- fully, and his remarkable ability to hang on to passes promises to be a threat on the Green and White offensive. Don Kra- mer's weight combined with plenty of drive in the right tackle spot will prove valu- able to the team on both offense and de- fense. Bob Dewey and Dick Kaylor, at left and right guards respectively, are two of a kind. Although light, they display SCHEDULES Football Schedule for 1945 Sept. 29-Kent Roosevelt .....

Paul Shepherd, short but hefty, owns an exten- sive collection of deadly blocks and tackles which he uses generously, both while cen- tering the ball and while backing up the line. Jim "Tiny" Miller has proved his ability to hit and hit hard from the left tackle position, much to the regret of op- posing teammates in scrimmages. Nat Howard, shifting from the backfield to right end, is learning the tricks of his new position rapidly, and this knowledge com- bined with his drive and tackling ability promises to make him a valuable member of the team. Going into the backfield we find quar- terback Dave Nicholson whose ball-hand- ling and deception will be a threat to any enemy. Jim "snake hips" Roush, return- ing to the right half slot, will again tote the pigskin for the Tebmen, using the same fight and shiftiness that made him such a yard-gainer last year. Denis Sullivan displays speed from left halfback position and his ability to knife through the line will prove dangerous to any opponent. Bob "Cowboy" Joslyn combines weight and speed with vicious tackling to make him- self a sharp thorn in the opposition's side. In addition to this line-up there are several other players who have promise and who will give the other boys a real fight for their positions. 1 340 1 .313 gs. KN Pi fiflraf if is-eiigvif-"E'5 Q.

SEPTEMBER 21. 1945 Acaclemy Announces Plans for Forwarcl-looking Campaign To Raise l,000,000 for Construction of New Buildings To honor the heroes, living and dead, of Western Reserve Acadcmy and the donor of the Ellsworth endowment, a 125th An- niversary and Memorial Program has been evolved by the Trustees, the Headmaster i and the Faculty. This Memorial Program will ' be completed in 1951. The success of this Anniversary and Memor- ial Program is partly as- sured by the gift of Mr. Ellsworth. Only the in- come of this generous gift is available for the school's use. The prin- cipal must remain in- tact. This income can be used only for current expenses. Conse- quently, the school over a period of twenty years has been able to build only two new structures. The trustees now plan to con- struct at least three new buildings on the campus. The total cost of these will be ap- proximately one million dollars. Mr. Robert S. Wilson These new buildings will be living mem- orials to the 34 sons of the academy who gave their lives in the service of their coun- try and those who served in the war. A memorial to the late Dean Harlan N. Wood, who for 38 years devoted his life to the interest of the academy, will also be pro- vided. The new buildings tliat will complete the 125th Anniversary and Memorial Program include: THE MEMORIAL GYMNASIUM In the past proper athletic training has been difficult due to the size of the present gymnasium. Only one basketball squad can practice at a time because there is only one court. Wrestling squads and tumbling classes have been forced to work under cramped conditions. Part of the money received in the Mil- lion Dollar Campaign will ge into the building of a new gymnasium which will honor all the students of Western Reserve Academy who fought in this war. In the future the students of the school will be able to receive the athletic training for which they are naturally adapted. SCIENCE BUILDING In recent years there has been a tremen- dous increase in scientific research and equipment and study. The most modern facilities will be available in this new sci- ence building to provide a good foundation career for any for a successful scientific Reserve graduate. Also included in this structure will be the workshops for machine and woodwork. A NEW LIBRARY AND AUDITORIUM The heart of any educational institution is its library. Reserve is indeed proud of the present library, but the time has come for its expansion to accommodate the books contributed in the last few years. The addi- tion of a well lighted and spacious library will indeed contribute greatly to academic success. ' Without an auditorium the school has :lone little along' the lines of dramatics and 'similar school activities. The addition of an auditorium will greatly add to the de- velopment of the school's educational facilities. The campaign will fully get under way in the middle of October. It should be ter- minated by the end of December this year. Early next m o n t h friends of the academy will receive a beautiful illustrated booklet in which will be scenes of the campus taken this summer by Cay and Krupp, photographers of Akron. This 2.0- page pamphlet was set up by one of the chief ' lay-out men of TIME, LIFE and FORTUNE. The campaign is un- der the chairmanship of Lewis B. Williams, chairman of the board of the National City Bank of Cleve- land. William D. Shilts, secretary of The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, is the vice chairman and Executive Director.

Reardon Free Time It is customary for the RECORD to pub- lish at this time ,each year some advice which has been useful in the past and which we hope will be of value to you who are newcomers to Reserve. These sugges- tions regard off-campus time, time which we hope you will use to your best advantage. Since we believe you feel that these occa- sions are far too few and Of t00 Sl10l'l2 duration, we know you'll want to make the best of them. When you leave the campus at the end of a week you leave certain obligations be- hind you. These can be attended to before your departure of completed during your stay at home. The obligations, of course, are your homework assignments. The point we make is that they must be done-Week end or no week end. It is evident that it will be more satis- factory to you if you can finish your work before leaving the campus. In some cases this is possible 3 sometimes it is not. It will depend primarily on whether your assign- ments at the time are heavy or light. Since requirements for studies are based upon the amount of time you are expected to have in which to do them, week-end assign- ments are often longer than those of week- days. Since this is to be the case, it will be advisable for you, when planning to take a week end, to make the best possible effort to finish your work before leaving or, at least, to get your work well started. If you have no opportunities tot do this before the time you reach your home, do it on arrival. Then you can enjoy your time at home with the 'assurance that your respon- sibilities are discharged. Remember that doing your work when it should be done may lead to better grades, better grades to more week ends. WITHOUT RESERVE Failures Annually, on a cer- f tain day in early fall, in -4, the dormitories of Western Reserve Acad- I' emy start to fill with 1 I chattering, buzzing stu- Y I dents. Each and every- l , R i one of these students sgggi I ' returns from his sum- 7.74 E' - mer recess fully in- :f gf 5..ZQ,,53., spired and possessing " I Q, an intense desire to i lifQ,',fV gain a place on the " 1' if' school's honor roll. "' Curiously enough very few of these imita- tive Einsteins succeed in reaching this standard of academic excellence. Thereare many and varied reasons for failure. ' One type of difficulty that some of these boys discover could probably be best illus- trated by J. Romeo Lovebeat, a typical vic- tim. .Romeo is a very romantic character, and consequently he left quite a string of feminine admirers back in the old home town. He would certainly like to make that honor roll because at' the present time he can think of no better way of impress- ing- "Snooksy." After all he mustn't let his best girl down. It is granted that Ro- meo's intentions are of a good nature, but the criticism must fall on his methods of fulfilling them. During the evening study hour he invariably writes to "Snooksy" in- stead of doing his math. When he finally does attempt to divert his attention from "Snooksy" long enough for the writing of an English theme, his mind frequently drifts and the result is an abundance of taboo's. Romeo was progressing remark- ably well in Latin until one day he was asked to give the principal parts of the word for lvoe. He answered, "Snookso, snooksere, snooksi, snooksusf' Another type of failure is illustrated by Charles Buckingham Bumblebrain. It oc- curs most frequently among the newer boys at W. R. A., who acquire the false impres- sion that the work is a "putz" or pushover. Charles uses his slide rule to keep score when he plays cribbage with his room- mate. Charles is often seen reading "Popu- lar Mechanics" and "Ace Comics" in study hall. Charles has never made the honor roll for some strange and peculiar reason. Case No. 3, in the person of Paul Long- arms Strongback, is the one in which the student is so enveloped in his outside activi- ties that he doesn't devote proper time to his studies. Instead of remembering who invented the blast furnace, he tries to re- member who blocks the tackle on play No. 43. Paul has an unusual amount of trou- ble in math class because he continually merges his football plays with algebraic representations and the result is truly re- markable. Of course, Paul has a better excuse than the rest of the fellows because s gmt ton the fRccondl During the past week I have been ap- proached by some of the newer lads who, in all good faith, wished to know the na- ture of what is fondly called a "sneakeroo." I feel it my duty to tell all new boys about this little venture. First, its origin. The "sneakeroo" was originated by a few alumni flong since seized with family troublej who believed that they were not getting enough permits to go home and see their-"families," They, therefore, invented methods by which they might leave the school 1 not entirely legally! for brief periods. The law-abiding came to look on these little excursions as "sneak- eroos." It really takes days of planning to carry out one successful "sneakeroo." You must first secure the "little gem wallet-size bus and train schedule, for all points north, south, east and west." After consulting this you must borrow "J. Harvey's safety- glide" which you throw out your window and upon which you slide down. QJ. Harvey hasn't found a way to get back up yet, but he's working on itll You also need a file for the bars, raw meat for the watch dogs, and money for carfare. When securing the money, don't do what poor old Laurie Dennett did, write a check with "sneak- eroo" in the lower left-hand corner. The remains of the check are still tacked on the bulletin board at the left of the business ofiice door. With these simple directions, you, too, can make your "sneakeroo" a success. I'm coming, Scotch! B. H. W. his attentions are at least directed toward benefiting the school. And then there's the case of I. Q. Minus whose failure is more justifiable than any of the others. This case is the most pitiful since nearly all the boys who have I. Q.'s difficulty are very conscientious. I. Q. spends every available moment slaving over his books, but it all seems to be of no avail since he never makes the honor roll. I. Q.'s life in the "Fair halls amid a lawn's wide sweep" must be very discouraging. LQ. Minus must at least be given credit for try- ing. 4 Finally, the gloom might be lifted if there were more students on the campus like Peter Q. Studybrain who doesn't go out with girls, doesn't play cribbage, doesn't like "Ace Comics" and 'Popular Mechanics," can't play football because of fallen arches, has an I. Q. of 165, and certainly wouldn't write "trash" like this. T. D. September 27, 1945 RESERVE RECORD Page 1 1 Held in Reamue Friday, September 28-Mr. Mickel speaks in chapel, 8:05.

Seventeen '45 Graduates New in Armed Forces Of the fifty-eight young men who gradu- ated in the class of 1945 seventeen have entered the armed services either through the draft or by their own choice. Others who have been waiting to reach the age of eighteen in order to enlist are also mark- ing time to see what Congress will decide concerning the draft and compulsory mili- tary training. Of those who have entered the service ten have gone into the Navy, four into the Army, and three into the Marines. Five of the boys in the Navy went into the study of radar. However, since enlistment this group has been discontinued. There- fore these boys soon will be put into the active list and have some chance of ship- ping out of the country. Those in this category include John Atkinson, Arthur Bradley, Blaine Beal, William Hottenstein, and John Roberts, 'all of whom are seamen first class. Robert and Richard Ballinger are on the inactive list of the V-5 section while John Siddall is on the Naval Reserve inactive list. Donald Hutchison and Mar- shall Doolittle are the only graduates of last year who are taking straight boot training at Great Lakes, Ill. The four privates from Reserve in the Army are Rollin Cockley, Fred Dawson, Charles Forker and James Timmis. Of the three Marine privates, Herman Post, Jay ,Huff and William Gardner, Jay has the distinction of having won the award of Expert Rifleman. Congratulations, Jay. With the ending of the war there comes the task of occupation which must be taken care of, but this problem is expected to be solved by enlistments only. We hope that hereafter seniors will have a choice of what they will do after they -leave our alma mater. lfliu--I-n 111i 1., x,,x ,,, 1, 1, l I 1 l E T. E. BISSELL 1 'Damut' Beromes Reserve's Mascot. s Throughout Reserve's various dormitories during the past week, strange sounds have been heard, and even stranger things have been happening. Eager Reservites race to and fro with contraband and lawful arti- cles. A boy enters a dorm surrounded by husky guards with ready knives. The boy casts furtive glances all around and bolts up the stairs and through an open door. In his hand, or tucked against his bosom may be a quart of milk, a slice of meat Cfrom the already scarce supply in the kitchenj or a towel held in a caressing way. Just what is the cause of this commo- tion? Eminent professors and Mr. Simon call it "Relis Libyca Domestica" fln case this is wrong, consult Websterj. We of North Hall, however, call it "Damut." Call it what you will, we have a cat on our hands. Damut is a small gray kitten with New Justice Member OF Reserve Cum Laude Reserve students will be glad to note that the newly appointed Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, former senator Harold H. Burton of Cleveland, is an honor- ary member of the Cum Laude chapter of Reserve. Justice Burton, formerly mayor of Cleveland, graduated from Bowdoin College in 1909 and was recently given a degree from Kenyon College. streaks of black here and there. Although quite thin through lack of food, she now consumes a soap-dish full of milk hourly. Easily tired by the unceasing attention of her faithful guardians, she sleeps through- out the day and most of the night in, on, or under their beds. The origin of this hirsute refugee, bru- tally expelled from the McGill and Culver realms, is dubious. Rumor has it that Damut is a close relation to the now ex- tinct Thaddeus. Due to her frivolous actions, she was evicted from Cutler's fair halls and was transported to North. There she spent several eventful days avoiding the watch- ful eyes of the masters. Recently, how- ever, the inevitable happened and now Room 10 has on hand one pound of "Ideal" Dog Biscuits fRussell, she loves 'emi and almost a pint of milk for any ailing Re- servite. vzompoqpf-:nan-1.-1-lap.-1-yum.:--mph11,11 11 4, !

In a tussle between the first-string and the second on the upper field it was proven that Roush, Sullivan, Joslyn and Co. are the best com- bination to be found in the squad. The team of boys, who are likely to get the nod to start the Roosevelt fray, were held and even moved back on their haunches during the first minutes. But this surpris- ing reversal soon proved that all the gang needed was a little rough stuff to wake them up. They soon had the ball advanc- ing rapidly towards the second team's goal line, and in no time at all they had hit pay dirt. This continued for the rest of the four quarters of the game. The second team and their substitutes were hardly able to make any yardage against the solid line of Vaught, D. Kramer, Kaylor, Shepard, Dewey, Jim Miller, and Howard. While their forward wall was holding ofi' the opposition and blocking down field for them, the backfield proceeded to run the ball practically where and as far as they pleased. Joslyn continually turned the tables on the other team's offensive, snatch- ing their passes out of the air and whirling through would-be tacklers to the end zone and another six points. 'The point making from their own of- fensive was shared between "Slippery" Sul- livan and "C. B." Roush. Both these halfs broke away to go over on more than one occasion. As for the extra points the at- tempts were divided between Roush and Howard. Neither was consistent. Though the actual score was not kept, it was well in the fifties for the first-string against no scores for the other teams. It is game experience that the Green and White will need against the Kent team Saturday as they will be playing against a team that has been "under fire" in three games previous to Reserve's opener. wif TT ' will I it as .

They spent a week p1'acticing, and the older and more experienced boys showed the 'younger and inexperienced ones some ofthe fine points in playing a good game of soccer. Since there was a fine turnout of the older boys, who had played the game before, it probably won't take a great while for new boys to become proficient. The whole group seemed very enthusiastic and were eager to get the season under way. At the end of the first week Mr. Clem- inshaw, who is in charge of the league boys, chose five seniors to captain the teams. These boys, who will attempt to lead their teams to victory, were Spud Milligan, Fred Neal, Thatch Rea, Bruce. Williams, and Dick Wright. All of these boys played on the league team last year and hope to have good teams again. Last year the teams were one-sided, but this year they appear more evenly matched. Some of shown that they can handle the ball and might tu1'n into good varsity material in the coming years. the new boys have already Last Sunday afternoon the teams were chosen by the captains at Mr. Cleminshaw's home, and on Monday the first scheduled game took place.

RECORDS-SECOND FLOOR, HURUN-PROSPECT BUILDING M12 italic Bros. Gp. RESERVE use 'life's Intrinsic Values' ls Theme at Sunday Vespers "Life's Intrinsic Values" was the theme around which was built a most impressive and thought provoking talk given Sunday evening at Vespers by Dr. Harold Cooke Phillips, pastor of First Baptist Church, Cleveland. Dr. Phillips pointed out three types of evaluations that people place upon things in general: the comme1'cial value, or how much something means to us by its worth in money alone-the utilitarian value, or how much actual use a thing is going to be to us-and third, the intrinsic value, or how much something is worth to us just in the permanent lasting enjoyment we will receive from it. This last type of value, Dr. Phillips sta- ted, is increasingly difficult to appreciate in our timesg we must not allow commer- cial and utilitarian values to crowd out the values of culture. Our Christian religion sends us to explore the truly woith-while things of life-the lasting things, which will never pass, while lesser issues fade away. Our speaker, Dr. Phillips. was born on the island of Jamaica in the Wcst Indies. After graduating from Denison University. Granville, Ohio, he continued his education at Columbia University and at Union Theo- logcial Seminary, both in New York City. Dr. Phillips' inspiring messages and sin- cerity of manner have made him in the past few years a speaker to whom the whole school looks forward to hearing every year. Dr. Harold Cooke Plzillips Answer Comes from War-Torn Wester Souliurg, Thanking Reserve for Proposed Aid Scenes of devastctfion in Wester Soulmry When Western Reserve Academy realized the connection between its new bell in the chapel tower and the war-devastated, flooded village of Wester Souburg in Holland, the school council hit upon the idea of sending a Christmas present to the people of the village. During the Christmas season of 1944 a campign raised S2125 for this pur- pose. At that time the council sent a letter to the burgomaster of Wester Souburg. By graduation time much more informa- tion about the bell's origin had been found out by alumni in Holland, the principal facts obtained by Carl Hess, '33. This information was sent to the alumni in the commencement invitations. Recently both Dr. Hayden and Mrs. Kitz- miller received answers to the letters sent to the burgomaster. Mrs. Kitzmiller has been active in both the investigation of the history of the bell and the campaign for money, and almost all the work of research and literature about the bell has been turned over to her. In the letters, A. H. S. Stemerding, "Voorzitter" of "Oost-en West- Souburg," expressed his thanks for Re- serve's thoughtfulness in collecting the An Apology . THE RECORD regrets that in the issue of last week in the story con- cerning the Anniversary and Memor- ial Campaign appearing on the front page, the name of Pearce F. Boyer was inadvertently omitted as chair- man of the Cleveland organization. This is particularly regrettable in view of the fact that the Cleveland unit is the largest of the 19 areas comprising the campaign's organiza- tion and Mr. Boyer and his commit- tee have already done a great deal of work for the success of the pro- gram. After the copy for the last REC- ORD had gone to press word was re- ceived that Dr. C. H. Hamilton of Oberlin had accepted the campaign chairmanship for that area. money for the village. He said, however, that money was of little value in devastated Holland and hoped that future gifts might be in material things. Since the tide Hoods the village twice a day, the ground has been ruined for planting. He therefor suggested that instead of seeds the academy buy clothing, shoes and rubber boots. and bicycles to send to Holland. Of the 6000 people who once lived in the vil- lage, only about 2300 remain, living in sec- ond-stories of the Hooded buildings. Mrs. Kitzmiller is working now on methods to collect, buy and send these necessary goods to the residents. The money already col- lected is in the Hudson bank, and it is hoped that another campaign this year will raise the amount to possibly 3300. The Student Council met on Wednesday with Mrs. Kitz- miller and Dr. Hayden to formulate plans for a Christmas shipment of goods for the stricken village. To Reserve, the bell, which was cast in 1611 by Jan Burgerhuys of Wester Sou- burg, is one of the strongest links between the school and war-torn Europe. Murray Goddard, another alumnus, acquainted him- self with two citizens ol Rotterdam, and from this and various sources we are still receiving information about the bell. As Mr. Stemerding says in his letter: "Please tell your students that they must appreciate their bell .... They must remember that thousands of inhabitants of towns and vil- lages in Holland miss the tone of their beloved bells, for the oppressor took them all." Daily Elected Council Member Saturday, after luncheon, the sophomore class held a meeting to determine a second council representative for their class. Daily, who was elected by a plurality vote, will take the place of Cal Beal who did not re- turn to Reserve this year. Dick received 19 of the 44 ballots cast. At this meeting it was also announced that Bob Barnard will advance to the posi- tion of president and there will be no vicc president unless an emergency should arise.

Reardon The Time ls Now Last Saturday Reserve officially opened its fall competitive sports season. Though we bowed to our opponents in this first contest, we found we had the kind of spirit winning football requires. School spirit has been the topic. of many an editorial published in this paper in the past. We feel, however, owing to the im- portance of the subject, that it cannot be brought to mind too often. The outcome of last Saturday's game is well known. Our team needed experience. It- needed con- fidence. That is why we urge you to GET BE- HIND THE TEAM! Our rooters showed a gratifying display of enthusiasm last week, especially considering the fact that the game was played off campus, thus mak- ing it didicult for many to attend. If a few can do so well, what can we do as a whole? We want and need the kind of pep and vigor displayed last fall at the University School game. Let's not wait 'til the end of the season to give the team our best. Learn the school cheers. Attend the games. 'Let our rivals know that we mean business.

Vespers In the dictionary one finds that the word vespers refers to a religious service held late on the Sabbath day. It is most natural, therefore, for us to' have our ves- per service in the evening instead of in the afternoon. There are indeed many reasons which speak for having it at the new time instead of the old, first and most obvious among them being that it is now held at the hour when most vesper services are conducted. It may also be. said that the vesper service now comes at the beginning of the new week, instead of at the lowest ebb of the -old. Sunday tea marks the end of the old week, and it is then that the student's mind seems to turn to the tasks of the week ahead. The time itself is preferable be- cause then the service does symbolize a beginning instead of an ending. There was another complaint which was held rather generally against the old time, that it cut Sunday afternoon far too short. Many were the times that games had to be called off prematurely, or the downtown movie left at the crucial point, in order that one might be on time fort vespers. Moreover, the service prepares one for study, a difficult task on Sunday night, particularly after an especially good week- end. No one will deny that there are objec- tions to the change, among them one which is very sound. It is the fact that the change brings boys back from week ends earlier, particularly upper classmen. How- ever, now that more gas is available, the situation is not as bad as it might have been last year. Nor is it nearly as bad as it might have been had the decision been to bring the whole school back for a five o'clock vesper service. So there are con- solations. gust ton the CRacondl From my perch atop the tottering brick one and all as the an excellent view of the feature of which attempted dunking by structure' known to Athenaeum, I had last week's events, was, of course, the the sophomores of a member in bad stand- As this column went ing of their class. to press the same person was seen leaving town with a full laundry case-shades of "Meet Me in St. Augustine!" Magic in large quantities has been mys- tifying the brethren of Cutler Hall. Led by "Ten little fingers and ten little toes" Howard, who can make anything except the guys in his closet disappear, they have con- jured up many right good tricks. Even Scotch is baffled, which is definitely some- thing new. The football team got a good start on a crop of beards with their first loss of the season last Saturday. A few "men" have signed an agreement not to shave till we win a game. Shepard wants to know if WITHOUT RESERVE Waiting Can Be Fun! As I take pencil in hand in readiness to 3 ,, make all you new boys howl with laughter, my ' mind wanders back to I I a time earlier today f K fwhat a memoryj A when we had our week- 14 QI' ! ly "drop-day" throw 7 Pi E' , for waiter at our table. ff Of course it was purely Q fate lending a hand ,A when the count hap- " ' " ' pened to land on one "' of our innocent freshmen. Because my heart bleeds so for these young men I shall do my best to expose those awful tricks we upperclassmen pull on them. One of my favorites is the "odd man" racket. Although L do use this method with some skill, probably the best known artist along this line is "Blueshins" Gordon. I have heard several of his victims remark, "He blinded me with footwork!" Another little number that is often employed is the "Start with Weick and go around" rou- tine. No matter how much one argues, the counting always starts with Weick. Of course it isn't that the throw is fixed or anything of that nature. After all, this is Reserve! Builder of men! Well, on second thought, maybe it was fixed. Probably the farthest extreme to which anyone has carried this "throwing" busi- ness as yet was the occasion when Jim Rodman stumbled on a theory for making any chosen person or persons throw any number desired. The result was a compact machine capable of controlling 5000 volts. However, the machine was never used here and it was frowned upon by the dining room committee. "You might hurt Some- body with it," they said. Instead, Jim pat- ented it, and made a small fortune selling it to small-town jails, thus eliminating the necessity of taking all killers to the state prison to be electrocuted. So let me warn the new boys. Whenever an upperclassman wants you to throw for waiter-refuse him point blank. If it gets to the point where you have to carry bricks for talking back to seniors about throw- ing, don't relent. After all, it's not so hard carrying them. Ask those who know. N. H. they have to shave when we do win! Following in a noble tradition of many years' standing, the prefects have mass confiscations of the choicest able viands-yes, I know it's a "Word Wealth" word. The sophomores who fly low over Cutler are the chief losers. Be- fore "Muscles" Jarboe hits me, I'll leave. begun avail- B. H. W. October 4, 1945 RESERVE -RECORD Page 15 Social Committee Plans At Reserve, as is the case in almost all prep schools, a good social program is a key factor in the morale of the student body. Dances, formal and informal, offer pleasant diversion from the work and rou- tine of daily school life. The school's social policy in the past has been a very satis- factory one, offering numerous dances and other events throughout the year. This year, the first one of peace since 1941, offers many possibilities for social events now that so few wartime restrictions remain. The time of dances, which in the past was made inconvenient by train sched- ules, has been put back on a normal bal- ance again, hours being from '7:30' to 11 with a half-hour intermission. Other changes and additions will be presented to the student body at class meetings. About two weeks ago the new Student Social Committee held its first meeting un- der the direction of Mr. Cleminshaw, Social Committee Chairman. The meeting was held in the Infirmary as Dave Nicholson, Peace- Time Schedule Council representative, was confined there temporarily. At the meeting, dates for fall term dances were discussed and tentatively decided upon. Two of the three dances for the term will be sponsored by the Coun- cil. One of these dances has been sched- uled for October 13, the second date is November 3. The other event is to be an "R" Club dance, planned for November 17. At this meeting a printed set of regula- tions and rules of conduct for dances was presented and thoroughly discussed. This printed material, which is simply the ac- cepted and time-proven policies of Reserve, was drawn up by the head of'the Social Committee and proved to be very adequate and complete. The members at the meet- ing felt that it would make the job of explaining dance regulations to the students much easier and more thorough. Before the first dance each class in the school will hold a meeting at which a repre- sentative from the Student Social Commit- tee will outline the dance regulations and answer any questions that arise. Samuel F. Husat New at Reserve, but experienced in the profession of teaching, is Samuel F. Hu- sat ipronounced "Hewsut," for the benefit of all those who call him "Mr, Whoosit.'l For the last year he has been recuperating from a wound sustained in the Normandy i n - vasion.

A Rumanian by birth, Mr. Husat was brought to Alliance, Ohio, when he was only two years old. He has lived there ever since. .At Mt. Union College in Al- liance he received his A. B. He did gradu- ate work in the Latin and Greek depart- ment at Harvard University and received his masters degree at the University of Michigan, where he had a fellowship. His work to obtain a Ph. D. from the Univer- sity of Michigan was interrupted by the war, but he is now working to complete it. Before the war Mr. Husat was head of captured letters' Record Sponsors Cartoon And Photography Contests This year the RECORD plans to run three photography and cartoon con- tests: one during each term. The first of these will begin immediately and will terminate on November 29- four days after the return from the Thanksgiving recess. All pictures for the contest must be printed on glossy paper and cartoons must be drawn with black ink on white paper. Subjects for cartoons and pictures must concern campus life. All material submitted, which should be left at the RECORD office, may be used in any way in which the staff deems wise. The judges this year will be the Reverend Raymond Burns, pastor of the Hudson Congregational Church, who was formerly in charge of pho- tography at the school, and Mr. Wil- liam Moos, instructor in Industrial Arts. Two first prizes of 37.50 each, one for photography and one for car- tooning, will be given, two second prizes of 35.00 each and two third prizes of 82.50 each. the modern language department at Al- liance high school and returned there for the winter and spring terms last year.

Modest about his military experience and studious life, Mr. Husat is at the same time cordial and interesting to be with. It is to be hoped that he will find Reserve a congenial place for his teaching in the years to come. in fiiiiii ill THE SPEAKER TALKED so Lou., on wunr ug wggt some ro rim.

Soccer Squad Practices: Team Rounding Into Shape With almost two weeks of practice under its belt the Reserve soccer squad is begin- ning to look like a fairly strong team. Al- though most of this practice has been played on wet fields, the boys have been able to accomplish a great deal towards the forma- tion of teamwork. The forward line, which seems to have had the most competitors, is still very Hex- ible. Mac Pierce is the most consistent player on the right end, although he gets plenty of opposition from Emerson Garver. Tom Clarke has tried the position, but it ap- pears that he will be working with the backfield in the future. Moving in to right inside, we find Chuck Critchfield, who has been unable to play for some time. He is supported at this spot by Bill Marton and Dave Sheldon. Provided that Malcolm Ken- nedy keeps his tricky knee in good condi- tion, the center spot will be the most skill- fully played position on the team. He is seconded by Paul Russell. Rich Nichols, though he also upholds the left wing, has been playing at left inside for some time. Terry Garrigan and Bud Ryan have both been playing at the left wing position. Skip Newell and Bill Cleminshaw seem to be the first choices for the center half- baek position. Dan Collister and Fritz Smith are the strongest bidders for the left half, while Corky Phillips and Johnny McCombe are now at the right half posi- tion. Glen Carter, John Miller and Bob Wattleworth are all strong contenders for the fullback spots. At goal Phil Hartsock is showing up well. The Academy booters still have a long way to go to reach their peak, but Reserve can be sure that in their first game with Oberlin they will turn in a spirited per- formance. 'R' Men A prominent member in the ranks of "R" men around Reserve is Dave Nicholson. Tall, dark, curly-headed Dave has every appearance of being the versatile sportsman that he is. It was his fight teamed with his beadwork t h a t gained him first- string berths d u r i n g every e a s o n l a s t year. "Nick" is at present in his second year as first-string quar- t e r b a c k, his third year on t h e v a r s i t y squad. An ex- pert passer, he did his part against Kent on Saturday. It was No. 58, Dave Nicholson, who inter- cepted a pass that would have meant a touchdown for Roosevelt, and he also knocked down the opposition's passes in the end zone. During the winter months it's basketball under Wally for "Nick." A solid guard, his shots from way out had a lot to do with the reckoning of the scores last year. At the opening of the spring season last year he showed up for baseball and took over the second base spot. In this position he proved to be the batter who was needed for power. Reserve hails the athletic prowess of Dame Nicholson Dave Nicholson, "R" man. . Il r 11 QL- ly nt ' SS P R I N T E R S 22l2-I8 Superior Ave. 0 MAin 209i o Cleveland. 0. Kent Roosevelt Routs Pioneers, 26-6 The Pioneer eleven got off to a bad start for the '45 season when they fell before Kent Roosevelt Saturday night. On their own field and under lights the opposition amassed a score of 26 to 6 over the Green and White. The first half was a close iight, both teams using the openings to move the leath- er down the field. Kent found Reserve ends susceptible to their wide runs and short passes and swept the wings for good gains. At the same time the Tebmen gained their yardage through the off-tackle holes and advantageous punt exchanges made possible by Bob Joslyn. Only one score was pushed over in the initial half-this by Roosevelt. The Red and White passed and ran the Pioneer ends until they had reached the 20'-yard stripe. From there they went over on an end run. Aside from this, the fray seemed even until the third quarter. In this period the Kentmen once again hit pay dirt, making the score 121 to 0. This was quickly coun- ter-balanced when the Reservites took the kick and drove to Kent's 35-yard line. From here the Green and White retaliated, Dick Rogers doing the job. Dick took the ball and on a quarterback run through the tackle hole, romping the 35 markers to score standing. This was the eleven's one bright spot during the evening. Reserve relaxed somewhat after this and Kent was quick to take advantage of the opportunity afforded. In the few minutes remaining in the third stanza the home team took the long kick by Paul Shepard and charged up the field to Reserve's 10'-yard line on a series of wide end sweeps and passes. The time caught them before they could score, but four or five plays at the first of the last quarter put the ball over the double line. This time their conversion was good. The score now stood 19 to 6. Then, once more, before the final gun they pushed down the field to scoring terri- tory on ,passes and long sweeps. Again they scored and converted, making the final score 26 to 6. The middle of the line from tackle to tackle held up and pushed back all that the Roosevelt team could throw at them, but this was not the case on the ends and in the backfield. The left end was especially weak, while the faulty pass defense prob- ably sealed the Pioneers' doom more than anything else. Reserve Position Kent Roosevelt Vaught ........ . ..... R.

Holsey Handyside, who was one of two who led yells last year, graduated in June, leaving Stu Leeb as the only leader. This year two more boys were chosen to help Stu direct the spirit of the school in a good year of athletic competition. The boys were chosen from a group of five fel- lows who tried out. Each boy led cheers at the first rally, and two were chosen from the group by a vote of hands. The new cheerleaders, Ted Jones and Chick Holt- kamp, will assist Stu, who has been a cheer- leader for three years. Cleveland Manager of Time Magazine, D'0rsay Hurst, Speaks To Journalism Classes and Record Staff Sunday Morning Last Sunday morning at 11 o'clock Mr. D'Orsay Hurst, the Cleveland manager of Time magazine, spoke to the journalism classes and the RECORD staff of Western Reserve Academy. His subject, journalism, he defined as any form of informative com- munication including documentary films, newspapers, magazines and radio. While the newspapers take care of the spot news, they cannot look into the backgrounds or full significance of their subjects. Magazines emphasize these details because their arti- cles are not so limited by time. The radio gives both local, national and international news as it comes across the telegraph wires whereas the newspaper in normal times has local news almost exclusively. Mr. Hurst then turned his attention to journalistic preparation. There are several means of studying for a journalistic career. The first method is to start at the bottom in a newspaper office and work up the hard Way. The second possibility is ajournalism school, but in an establishment of this sort there is usually too much training in the technicalities of newspaper publishing and not enough in the expression of ideas. The best training, the speaker pointed out, is a thorough education in the humanities to en- able a journalist to think straight. The technicalities of setup and printing can be learned more quickly by experience after a background has been acquired in college. In closing, our guest emphasized the fact Mr. D'Orsay Hurst that there has been a world change in the past two months. We are entering the Atomic Age. With the advent of atomic power there must be one world or there will be no world. To achieve "one world" there must be an understanding among nations, an understanding which comes from knowl- edge. "At the top of the heap" America must realize that with her strength comes responsibility. It is her obligation to be able to understand the problems of other countries and to help in their settlement. Toward a better world friendship interna- tional journalism will play a great part. Science has greatly encouraged better means of transmitting news to all parts of the world. The NEW YORK TIMES and the LONDON TIMES both are sent across the ocean by air thanks to microfilm. When they are received, they are reprinted by means of photo-offset, a cheaper method though not so attractive as conventional printing. In the question period which followed Mr. Hurst was asked about the popularity of the newspaper as compared with the con- stantly improving means for the dissemina- tion of news. Other questions concerned wontlnued on Page 20, Column 27 . Noted Radio Commentator Revisits Reserve Campus. Tomorrow morning Reserve is to have the privilege of a return visit from one of last year's most popular guests, Mr. Cesar Saerchinger, noted radio commentator and news analyst. Mr. Saerchinger was on the campus for several days during last Oc- tober addressing various classes and groups throughout the school. This year he has come back for a long week end and will do more or less the same thing, attempting to inform the students concerning the im- portant facts now before the councils of the world. During his stay on the campus, Mr. Saerchinger will inaugurate the Civil As- sembly program on Friday morning. He will lead the first Mugwump meeting that evening at Pierce House. On Saturday our visitor will speak to a number of history classes, and the following day he will meet with the seniors in the morning and ad- dress the entire student body at Vespers in the evening. Later that night he will go to Cleveland to make his weekly broadcast. The guest will visit classes again on Mon- day and leave Tuesday morning after ad- dressing the school once more in chapel. The Academy welcomes Mr. Saerchinger back with pleasure, and hopes that his stay, despite the pace demanded of him, may be an enjoyable one.

Reardon lt's Up to Us One possession that many of the students at Reserve don't realize that they' all hold in common is the very school itself. The buildings, the furniture, the recreational facilities and the lawns are all ours for the nine months in which we live here. They are ours either to care for or to degrade. We are responsible for the appearance of the school. We should accept this respon- sibility in the manner in which we accept the fact that we must have our lessons in at a certain time. It seems fitting that we, the student body, should be concerned over the appearance of the school. Are we not at heart proud of our homes when they are well kept? Do we not take great pleasure in making our automobiles look just as neat, clean and shiny as it is possible to make them? Well, then, what about the place where we live during three quarters of every year? After all, our part is truly very simple. It is almost completely a negative matter. We must not throw trash on the campusg we must not treat furniture in such a way that it soon must be repairedg we must not write on desks and other wooden ar- ticlesg we must not willingly destroy any of the school's property. If we cannot re- strain ourselves from doing these petty things, we are not treating ourselves or the school justly or honoring the memory of the founders of the school. , Helping Hands Boys aged between 15 and 17 were caught in a very curious position during the war: they were too young to fight but too old to be utterly useless on their country's home- front. Moreover, nine months of the year they were engaged in schoolwork which- especially at Reserve-took up all of their time. The obvious answer to their predi- cament was work during the summer- hard work which would keep both the home and war fronts going just a little faster. And that's what they did. Some of them worked in factories, some in grocery stores, others on farms-any place where a help- ing hand was needed. At the end of the summer they went back to school holding their heads just a little higher and came out of the war with a little clearer con- science than those who had the most fun while the fun was to be had. It is very hard to define a satisfactory civilian contribution in wartime. Certainly there are none who made as great a sac- rifice as those who actually fought. How- ever, teen-age boys who at least made an attempt at helping out are to be given credit for their contribution. Many Re- servites who otherwise might not have had to work in the summer are known to have chipped in and sweated a little for their country. Let us not forget that the patriotic as- sistance given in wartime may well be preserved for the days of peace. There ,is much to do before the peace is secure. Eoys of our age should not overlook any contribution we can make. wiiuuui ill.-:ill-IEIVE The Story of Joe Joe's grades were .f-. far from good as a Q5 freshman. It was his i misfortune that every X' time that he had a question in some sub- ject such as Latin, the master or prefect on duty stated that it had been so long since he had had the subject, that he had forgotten all that he had learned. "He doesn't stand too much of a chance," said the assistant head- master, and it wasn't long before the re- mainder of the faculty, headed by the headmaster' chimed in, "Doesn't stand a chance. Tsik, tsik. Doesn't stand a chance." Therefore, Joe became black- balled from the start. In his sophomore year he had a sum- total of seventy-four swats, and, because he had accidentally slipped on the snow and had fallen on "Senior Campus", he had to carry six bricks for two weeks. But it was a different story concerning the grades. This year Joe had the foresight to pick a brilliant room-mate, one who had already made a name for himself in the field of scholarly performance. Therefore, at the end of the first grading period in his sopho- more year, the assistant headmaster had good cause to say at faculty meeting, "You know men, I think Joe Doaks is going to make a good name for himself and in his senior year he might even make Cum Laude." He was immediately joined by the head- master and the dean, who simultaneously chorused, "Might make Cum Laude, might make Cum Laude."

In his sophomore year, the prefects tried each night to see who could draw blood on the first swat. Thus, because he was unable to walk without a slight limp, his merit score was always endangered. But at heart, Joe was really a good boy, and was coming along rather well in his subjects with the aid of his room-mate. He was also very well liked by his fellow stu- dents and by the faculty, and, when the vote for the next year's prefects came around, Joe had even won the approval of the present prefects. Therefore, Joe was elected to be one-twelfth of the prefect sys- tem for the following year. Naturally Joe was overjoyed at the pros- pect of becoming a prefect. Look at the privileges it had to offer: an extra show a week, late-lights, and last, but far from least, the honor of using the paddle. With school over for the summer, Joe went home and took his paddle with him. Every night he practiced his swing and improved his wrist action by swatting against a pillow. He even bought exer- cisers to strengthen his wrist, and to im- prove his back and arm muscles, he did fifty or more push-ups a night. The night before school opened he had a meeting with the other five prefects in the room of his dorm master. Everything went perfectly until the dorm master ut- tered a phrase that was agreed upon by house masters. The only two words that meant anything to Joe were, " . . . pad- dling . . . abolished." Everything to which he had looked for- ward was ruined by those two words. All he had hoped for and had worked so hard to achieve was wrecked. After the meeting was over, Joe walked out, too stunned to make any comments as the others had done. Y That night he lay awake until one o'clock, reasoning with himself, swearing at house masters for having abolished paddling. Then he realized why it was abolished. The faculty didn't want things happening to future students that had happened to him. "It was a pretty good idea after all," thought Joe, whereupon he turned over and fell asleep. S. L. october 11, 1945 RESERVE RECORD just ton the Reconcll Once again I begin my semi-monthly ad- vice to those who need it most. I'm sure everybody on the time that there is days. There are campus knows by this a dance in a couple of many details connected lts lining comes outl with a Reserve dance beside a ruler, a stop- watch, and a victrola. Heading the list, of course, is getting the girl. This is usually done on the last day before date cards are handed in. For those who aren't so capable at computing, that day is Sunday. Last Sunday I watched "Semi-Thatched" Rea, Reserve's largest operator, in action as he cast caution aside and spent ten cents toward the promotion of a date. After a girl has been selected, there is really nothing left to do before the night of the dance but sit and dream about the coming evening--the dreams being subject to rigid censorship by the social committee, of course. Then as the big night arrives, we can find most any of our manly group care- fully shaving oft' the "face-fuzz" and ap- plying lotion. by the gallon.

I guess I'll sprint down, too. , William J. Barr William J. Barr, another addition to the faculty, comes from Stow, Ohio, where he has been living for the last nineteen years. A native Ohioan, Mr. Barr was born in East Fairfield, and soon after moved to Columbiana, where he attend- ed high school. At Ohio and Ak- ron Universities he took liberal art courses and received. his A. B. and M.A. degrees. A f t e r h i s graduation Mr. Barr served for a time as principal in West Lafay- ette, where he coached basket- ball and taught mathematics and history. For the last nineteen years he was coach at Stow High School. There he coached football, basketball and baseball. Two- thirds of the football and basketball games resulted in victories for Stow while he was there. For instance, last year his football team won seven out of eight games in the Metropolitan League, which includes some pretty stiff competition. Mr., Barr also taught math at Stow. At Reserve he is assistant coach in ath- letics, and, of course, his favorites for the winter and spring terms are basketball and baseball. In his lightweight football squad he can see a lot of talent, but no immediate hope for this year. A medium-sized man of athletic build, Mr. Barr played basketball and baseball in high school and college. Mr. Barr is al- ready well liked at Reserve because of his genial nature and we hope he may give Reserve as much luck as he gave Stow for William J. Barr B. H. W. Dance . . . rcontlnued From Page l7.

Mrs. Eilbeck's Son Marries On Sunday, October 211, Mrs. Mary Eilbeck's son, Blake, who graduated from Reserve with the class of 1925, is to be married in Washington, D. C., to Miss Cecil Royalty. Mrs. Eilbeck, for those who did not know her, was the school librarian until this year. She has been in Hudson all summer recuperating from a serious illness to which she succumbed early in July. Next week she will leave for Wash- ington for the marriage. Mrs. Eil- beck will live with her son and his wife when they get settled, probably in New Jersey.

In spite of the close score the Reserve squad didn't show up as well as in its previous game against Kent Roosevelt. Tough breaks in the forms of penalties and losses of the ball at critical moments spoiled the Tebmen's scoring pos- sibilities. Time and time again Reserve pushed the leather into enemy territory only to lose it on intercepted passes, fum- bles, or as a result of long penalties. The first two periods of the battle were relatively uneventful, both teams staying near the middle of the gridiron and ex- changing punts. Fullback Bob Joslyn turned in his customary good performance in the kicking department, getting off some nice punts when they were needed. One real scare for the Pioneers came just be- fore the half gun. In the closing seconds of the half Parma completed a long pass which looked like a touchdown until Dick Rogers nailed the pass receiver' from be- hind, just twenty yards from the slant lines. This play ended the first half, no score being made. In the third quarter Parma turned on the heat and marched to the Reserve ten-yard line. From there a pass was completed into the end zone for their lone tally. When Parma plunged the extra point the score stood 7-0 in the enemy's favor. Taking the kick-off, the Green and White started a determined march toward the goal posts. A series of successful maneu- vers carried the pigskin to the fifteen-yard line where a heartbreaking fumble lost the ball and a golden scoring opportunity. The remainder of the fray consisted of Parma's freezing the ball and Reserve's passing in an attempt to connect for a score. The report of the final gun found the ball in Parma's possession after an interception of a long Reserve pass. The team's spirit and general coopera- tion seemed to be low, and the forward wall was not as consistent as winning football requires. Several passes that might have gone for long gains were dropped, although Tom Allchin proved his ability to hang on 'R' Men Soccer Squad Wins A returning first-stringer for this year's football team is George Vaught, "R" man. Playing his second year at the right end spot, George, the Count of Corpus Christi, the playing field. There is much credit that can be placed behind his name on the type of football he plays. Tall, dark and well bearded he's been in the opposition's back- field as much as their halfbacks, In his four years at Reserve George has shown versatile athletic powers, though he shines the brightest in the pigskin sport. During the coming basketball season he will be counted on to fill the center posi- tion. His defensive and offensive work un- der the baskets while playing on the re- serves last year should earn him the place. In the spring he has divided his atten- tions between baseball and tennis. In the coming spring season he will probably be teamed with another boy to play the dou- bles matches for the highly successful Pio- neer tennis team. has held up his zone on George Vomght We congratulate and respect the athletic ability of George Vaught, "R" man.

Over Oberlin in First Tilt Kennedy Scores lone Goalg Return Game to Be Played Saturday On Saturday the Reserve soccer team won its first game of the year, defeating the Oberlin College varsity booters on Oberlin's oversize soccer field which took its toll of winded Reservites. However, since from the beginning of the game the Green and White team showed plenty of pep and spirit, they finally won the day by a margin of one point. Reserve's inexperienced team went into the game with the knowledge that their Oberlin foes had beaten previous Green and White teams for the last thirteen years. Though the outlook before the game was none too good, it improved as the game progressed. While many of the Reserve boys soon got winded, they seemed to have more pep than their opponents. During the first quarter the teams seemed evenly matched. During the second quarter the ball kept changing hands until Malcolm Kennedy, the center forward, got control of it exactly in front of the enemy goal and made a beautiful shot which slipped above the goalie's hands. From then on the game continued as be- fore with little or no change. The line did its best to make another score but was repulsed time and again. Mac Pierce on the right did some fine work centering the ball but Kennedy and his insides, Marton and Russell on the right and Nichols and Critchfield on the left, were unable to break through. All three of the halfbacks, Skip Newell at center, and Collister and Phillip on the left and right, played a fine game backing up their forward line and breaking up the enemy rushes. Towards the end of the game Glen Carter and John Miller, the fullbacks, were kept very busy by the Oberlin booters who turned on all they had to get a goal. Re- serve's goalie, Hartsock, playing his first varsity game, turned out to be one of the outstanding players of the day. The worst moment for the Green and White team came when, with about a minute of play, an Oberlin shot bounced off' one of the goal posts.- Luckily the ball was quickly cleared and kept away from the Reserve end of the field for the rest of the game.

Unable to attend the chapel service that morning Mr. Saerch- inger made his first talk on Friday evening to the Mugwumps of the academy and the Mugwumpettes from Laurel. His subject was his flying trip to Europe this spring. Sunday morning he was scheduled to speak to the senior class but was unable due to the Headmaster's illness. At Sun- day dinner he ate with several seniors. That evening he addressed the student body and guests on the subject, "Citizens of the World." He began by recalling a few of the outstanding events in the closing and most terrifying phase of the war. These included the Battle of the Bulge, Remagen Bridge, the campaign of the Moselle and the Saar, the meeting of the Allied forces with the Russians at Torgau, the final sur- render of Germany, the Potsdam Confer- ence and the surrender of Japan immedi- ately after the debut of the atom bomb. At first we were all shocked at the crimes committed by our enemies against human- ity, but today we are delighted by the pun- ishments which are being brought against the guilty and the innocent-"kicking a fellow when he is down." If anyone had observed the pathos in Europe caused by this war, he would realize the fault of this sort of spirit. This winter many will die either of starvation or of the diseases which have sprung up because of war. The United Nations have agreed on a charter at Dumbarton Oaks and have had a conference at San Francisco where this charter was revised and adopted by fifty nations. This new organization resembles the old League of Nations with its councils and court, but the leaders of the new or- ganization are more agreed as to their pur- poses. If Russia and the western democra- cies can agree, as they must, the new league will work. For such an agreement each country must "rise above nationalism, political and economic," and begin to think in international terms. For many who have learned to think in national terms due to interest in personal gain this new idea will be hard to grasp. The basic necessity for such thinking and agreement is education not only of and about our country but also our neighbors, ene- mies as well as friends. A second necessity is the overcoming of nationalism and with it sovereignty. God was the first sovereign in the world. Gradually men of wealth and influence began proclaiming above the law, even crediting themselves with a "divine right" supposedly given them by God. How- M r. Caesar S aerchinger Mr. Saerchinger Speaks at First Mugwump Meeting On Friday night the first Mugwump meet- ing of the year took place with the Laurel Mugwumpettes at Pierce House. The group got together about six-thirty with Mrs. Hayden acting as hostess. Miss Lake and Miss Florence represented Laurel, and Mr. Pflaum, this year's leader of the Mug- wumps, directed the meeting. After a delicious dinner, the group, including be- sides the girls and boys Mr. and Mrs. Mickel, Mr. and Mrs. Roundy and Mr. War- ing, was addressed by Mr. Saerchinger. The commentator spoke of his trip to Eu- rope in April, immediately before the end of the war and of what he saw there, chiefly the destruction of the cities. He traveled with a number of other radio news analysts and during the trip met General Eisen- hower and later General Patton. They toured the fronts as well as the territory including Northern France, Belgium, Lux- emburg and Western Germany. The meeting came to a close about 9:3-0. It was a very enjoyable one, and it is hoped that the joint groups will be able to meet often during the course of the year. I945 War Chest Drive Announced in Chapel Reserve's nineteen forty-five War Chest drive was initiated this morning at chapel by Tom Allchin, student director of the campaign. The whole school will be can- vassed within the next few days by stu- dents chosen by the War Chest committee, composed of Allchin, Lindsey, Linforth and Messrs. Culver, Simon and Tilt. Mr. Cul- ver, over-all director of the drive, will can- vass the members of the faculty. This year's War Chest drive is a matter which deserves the earnest attention of every boy and master in the school, for the War Chest has a great task to fulfill in this postwar world. The Community Fund drive of former years and the War Chest drive will be combined this year for the last time. Therefore we see that this year, as in the past few years, we have atwo-fold job ahead of us. In the War Chest alone are incorporated nineteen agencies which bring relief to the war-ravaged countries of Europe and the Far East, and which take supplies and recreational facilities to our armies of occupation abroad. In the Community Fund, on the other hand, are included one hundred twenty-one agencies which provide much needed help for many worthy causes within the nation. Among these are agencies to help war-stricken families, agencies for providing wholesome recreation for the youth of the nation to reduce juvenile delinquency, institutions as- sisting in child care, homes for the aged, hospitals and numerous other philanthro- pies. The amount of money contributed by the students and masters of the school plus five hundred dollars allotted by the board of trustees from the school's capital will be divided into three parts. One portion each will go to the Cleveland and Akron War Chests fthe Hudson War Chest being a part of Akron'sJ, and the third to organiza- tions and agencies in Hudson such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Parent-Teachers' Association and the various churches. Last year the school contributed over nineteen hundred dollars. A Dr. Hayden ls lll ever, people slowly and painfully learned the weak points of a sovereign and recog- nized the value of a democracy. The re- maining sovereign states must be gotten rid of before we are free from the danger of war. Our only possibility is to unite into one sovereignty, the United Nations. However imperfect the new organization is, the United States must show others the way to an international and mature peace. After the vesper service Mr. Saerchinger fcontlnuod on Page 23, Column 31 While returning from the Pennsylvania station in Hudson, where he said farewell to friends on-Saturday evening, Dr. Hayden complained of illness. Stepping from his car, he collapsed and was assisted into Pierce House. Dr. Weidenthal was immediately sum- moned and diagnosed the Headmaster's ill- ness as a cerebral hemorrhage. While Dr. Hayden's condition is serious, there has been some improvement and the outlook is considered hopeful. Page 22 RESERVE RECORD ' .

Dear Reservite: If you are a Reservite service man who has just left the service or are about to leave it and are uncertain about what you want to do or how to go about it, this let- ter may be of particular interest to you. All of the Reserve masters and I want to remind you that our interest in you and in your educational growth is undiminished by the cessation of hostilities. And while we do not pretend to know all the answers, it would give us real pleasure to discuss your plans with you and to assist you as far as we can in deciding what you should do and how to proceed. If you were accepted by your chosen college before entering the service, you will probably Wish to proceed With YOU? original plan to attend it whether or not you actually took up residence there. In general, we would recommend this course. But it may be that you entered the service before securing admission to any college- If so, and if you are in doubt as to what to do, we suggest that you write and tell us your problem in some detail. Our Guid- ance Committee is anxious to turn its ex- perience and its knowledge of present prob- lems to your benefit. The college or university which you may consider entering undoubtedly has a "Vet- erans' Counsellor" whom you should con- sult even before writing to us. He is cer- tain to have more recent information about the veteran's opportunities in that college than we have. His advice would be helpful to us in considering your problems with you. It would be fine if you were able to come to Hudson personally instead of Writing to us. We can't promise to solve your prob- lem, but we'll do our best. And it would be a real pleasure to see you and talk with you again. Cordially yours Joel B. Hayden, Headmaster.

"' In the meantime let us switch our thoughts to the Reserve chapel where the faculty are patiently, but vainly awaiting our New York visitor. The meeting is suddenly interrupted by the appearance of our Champion. He rushes madly to the pulpit and says, "Our guest either didn't get on or didn't get off." "Suh, suh, you is at de end of de line and now you has to get ,up!" "Great Caesar's ghost, porter, have you found my speech yet?" "Your speech, suh? Oh, dat thing! Me and de baggage man picked it up last night while ah was polishin youh shoes." "Well hurry and get it, porter, I've got to read it to the boys at Western Reserve Academy this morning." We return to Reserve and find Jungle Jim chasing his classes through the halls in search of our hero, who by this time is just arriving on the scene, protesting the fact that he has not yet been permitted to eat. He is soon whisked away into a history class where J. C. and P. G. fall all over themselves Qand on the visitorl trying to make him comfortable. After this try- ing experience he is told to whip up a talk on "The Effect of Japanese Beetle on Span- ish Diplomacy" to be delivered the next period to the biology class. Our guest shud- ders, but being a man of great fortitude, he goes to work. He struggles through this and four more equally difficult tasks and does a remarkable job in. each. By this time our guest is utterly exhaust- ed. He thinks that now after such a strenuous morning he can relax and enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal in the solitude of his room. But no! All his hopes are dashed when he is told that he has been scheduled to dine and dis- cuss current affairs with the budding jour- nalists. . At lunch he is served a bountiful meal of corn bread and beans. He downs this with gusto and now, his former vigor re- turned, he demands his next assignment. He is told that he must speak to the cam- pus crew on the possibilities of diplomacy as a career. So our guest is initiated into the crew and spends the rest of that after- noon raking leaves and sawing wood.

Believe me, to the casual bystander they are very novel. Every dance has a couple dozen of the intellectual type who, from arm's length, look sternly into the eyes of the girls with whom they are dancing and inquire, "What subjects are you taking this year?" or "Do you think the London conference will ac- complish its purpose?" They think this will break the ice, but usually the girls answer "Yes" or "No" and slink off for the rest of the evening, leaving said "species intellectalisv out in the cold with the inter- national outlook still unsettled. Next, there's the card. Everything he says or does sends the girls into hysterics, and he basks in his glory as the howling multitudes sing his praises. Those who really want to dance have to put up with his warped sense of humor instead. He getsga tremendous charge out of cutting in on the same girl all evening. At every dance there is at least one of the "great lover" type. He fancies himself irresistible, his mother told him he was! He definitely doesn't obey the "six-inch rule." Gazing with soulful eyes at an- other's date he softly purrs, "Say, honey, Pm yours for the asking at the next Laurel dance." "Crudjul" gets the prize for this one. Then, about the middle of the dance a few of the "species nocturnalis" or "dreamers" appear.. When they got a date, they never realized they would be so tired when dance night rolled around. As a re- sult they spend the evening on their dates' shoulders sound asleep. Benjie Lavin, '45, was an outstanding example of this type. He passed his technique on to our man Buchman. Probably the most egregious fcontributed by "Huburt" Gleason from Berstonj per- sonality at the dance was Jack Anderson, who exhibited the type of dancing taught only at our dancing school. He modestly admitted that he was the best in the class, and I am forced to admit that he's got something. , B. H. W. After the customary formalities of the October 18, 1945 ' RESERVE RECORD Page213 Marion Beth Kelly When the rumor started going around the school that the new librarian was sitting in her domain, nearly everybody went over to investigate. For the first few days the library did a thriving business, and those who were bold enough to ask the pretty librarianls name found that she is Miss Marion B. Kelly. Miss Kelly has come to the Reserve campus to take the place of Mrs. Eilbeck. who retired last year. Miss Kelly's home is in Struthers, Ohio, where she taught English and hygiene for eight years. She attended Kent State Uni- versity, where she received her bachelor's degree. At the University of Pittsburgh she took postgraduate work, and later attended the Syracuse Library School. where she re- ceived another degree. Her experience in- cludes a position in the reference depart- ment at the University of Pittsburgh and another as readers' advisor at the Youngs- town public library. The position of librarian which Mrs. Eil- beck left to Miss Kelly is an extremely difficult one, especially with the recent do- nation of many books. For a school of this size, she says. the Academy library is ex- tremely complete. Many old books encum- ber the library, however. Miss Kelly is getting to know more and more of the boys at a fast rate. The per- centage of boys who never go into the li- brary except to read an assigned lesson is rapidly diminishing. Miss Kelly manages the library with the same kindness and helpfulness as Mrs. Eilbeck did. Already she has gotten control of those with exuber- ant spirits, and the "silent" library is ruled by her firm but gentle discipline. The best way to know her is to meet her in her medium-the library. First Council Dante l For the first time in many years a Re- se1've Council dance was held at regular prewar time-7:30 to 11.

With both teams possessing the offensive power to score almost at will, it was by vir- tue of their conversions that the Black and White edged out the Reservites, 28 to 26. The game started with River receiving a short kickoff and immediately starting to march down the field. They went through and around a seemingly lifeless green-clad eleven. With hardly any defense against them they were able to set up the first score of the day. Their big fullback on the offense, Bill Hague, went through center to garner the initial six points. Don Seed- house passed to the left end, Boehn, for the extra point, and the Pioneers were be- hind, 7 to O, with very few minutes in the first quarter gone. The Tebmen now began to fight and took the pigskin down into the opposition's ter- ritory. This march ended with a pass from Sullivan to Vaught who took the ball over for the score. This one play netted the Reservites forty yards and the key to River's defensive weakness. Rogers kicked between the uprights to tie the score at seven all. The River team came back quickly after this setback to make their second touch- down. Both the score and conversion were made by Hague. In the second stanza the Pioneers tallied again on their aerial attack. From midfield Dave Nicholson tossed to Nat Howard's arms. With the leather in his hands Nat sprinted away from the converging River backfield to make the score 14 to 13. Re- serve's score remained at thirteen when Nicholson's kick was wide of the poles. Bill Hague was again in the scoring play in the second half, passing to Tom Sarles, the offensive right end, for the counter. Murray passed to Sarles for the extra point. Soon the Reservites recovered a fumble on one of their own punts in enemy ground. With this scoring opportunity they pushed to the six-yard line. Then Jimmy Roush shot through the off' tackle hole for the tally. Jim's kick was also good so the score stood at 21 to 20. It was the same score going into the final period. Then, in Reserve territory, Seed- house threw another long ozone ball to Tom Sarles, who went into the pay dirt standing. The conversion was good and eight points separated the two teams. The time was short and there was only two minutes to go when the Green and White once again reached scoring ground. They equaled River's number of touchdowns when Dennis Sullivan cracked the opposi- tion's line off his own right tackle for the score. The kick was again wide, so River took a fast and exciting ball game on two conversions. V leeb, Nesbitt, Brady Chosen league Football Captains After a week and a half of calisthenics and practice the league football squad se- lected Nesbitt, Leeb and Brady to captain the three teams. They now have their sea- son on the damp upper field. Leeb took the lead at the start by defeating Nesbitt and Brady. However, at the present time Nesbitt has a narrow margin over Leeb while Brady's club brings up the rear. The three coaches of the teams, Mr. Wal- lace for Brady, Mr. Husat for Leeb, and Mr. Pflaum for Nesbitt, hope to strengthen their teams with material from future var- sity cuts and advancements from light- weights. A meal in Cleveland for the vic- torious team is rumored to be the prize. To date, Leeb's right half,'Connors, suf- fering from a fractured ankle, is the only major casualty. The mud of the last few weeks evidently makes a soft cushion. With a few sunny days the teams will be able to tell their full power on hard ground and with the help of painted helmets will be able to tell each other apart.

Oberlin Booters Take Reserve Eleven, 2-I The Reserve soccer team's second game of the season, one which started well for Reserve, turned out to be a heartbreaker. With much more spirit than they showed last week when they were defeated by Re- serve on their own field, the Oberlin booters finally came out on top by a score of 2-1. In the first quarter of the contest neither team showed to advantage. However, it was evident that Oberlin was prepared to play a harder game than they had done the previous week end. Even so the Green and White boys were rewarded for equally hard play by a goal towards the end of the second quarter. This first,goal was a re- sult of fast rushing and skillful play in front of the opponents' goal. It was the center forward, Mal Kennedy, who finally made the winning shot. After the first counter the game con- tinued in the same manner as before, with neither team gaining the advantage. One could see, nevertheless, that during this time several Reserve players were getting tired out. The backfield was kept on the move by many Oberlin rushes. The three halfbacks, Phillips, Newell and Collister, with Bill Cleminshaw alternating, all played well. On the line Reserve had plenty of spirit, but Rich Nichols and Kennedy were outstanding. Reserve went into the third stanza of the game with the hope that Oberlin would not be able to stage a comeback. But the Orange and Red flag was not down yet- far from it, for they soon managed to slip a shot by goalie Hartsock. Then once again the game seemed to be slipping into a deadlock. The quarter ended with the score still tied. The last round proceeded in the same way until a freak shot slipped through Hartsock's hands. From then on till the end,of the game the Green and White boot- ers tired themselves out trying to force another score against their foes. O xv 0 "At Reserve nearly everyone reads the RECORD." RESERVE RECORD VOLUME XXII-N0. 7 AP? ----A HUDSON, OHIO, OCTOBER 25, I945 'lvbvf Qveffivn' 'S Meeting in Cltapel on Parents' Day Civil Assembly Topic On Tuesday morning Dr. Philip Taft, As- sociate Professor of Economics at Brown University, addressed the school at a Civil Assembly in the chapel. After a few in- troductory remarks about how pleased he was to come to Reserve, the guest spoke to the school on the labor question in the United States today. He mentioned the basic causes of labor disputes such as the breaking down of old relationships between the employer and the employee, the breaking down of old skills and crafts by developments in technology, and general fatigue in industries as a whole. Dr. Taft then went on to mention a few of the cures for labor disputes and strikes. He said that we must expect strikes to oc- cur in this period, since it is one of let-down after the war crisis. We must realize, too, that there are just grievances on both sides which need to be eliminated if harmony is to exist. And lastly, the speaker stressed the necessity of keeping one's balance and an open mind in respect to labor questions. New Senior Room Proposedp Plans Are Still Tentative It has been decided that it is necessary to construct a room in the basement of Cutler Hall which will serve as a Senior Coffee Room as well as a game room. Plans comprise the painting by the senior class of the walls already standing and the obtaining of furniture which will in- clude a piano, a victrola, and a ping-pong table. Although present plans are uncertain, Mr. Waring is trying to obtain furniture from the disbanding U. S. O. in Cleveland. Bob Garfield is working to get the walls painted and the equipment which is stored in the Cutler basement moved out. The chief reasons for this project are the facts that at present the faculty are disturbed by the noise in the Senior Coffee Room, and the seniors in general feel that they are not permitted sufficient liberty in their present quarters. Although the proj- ect is still in the formative stage, there have been some definite steps taken. I-leadmaster's Condition Improves Since Dr. Hayden's illness, which began on Saturday evening, October 13, the Head- master has made moderate gains toward recovery. While the feeling of apprehen- sion still persists, there seems more rea- sonable hope that later news may speak of continued progress.

Mr. Powers, who was here in the fall of 1942 at the sports banquet of that year, will be introduced by Mr. Rob- ert S. Wilson, President of the Board of Trustees, speaking briefly of the plans for the Academy's future. Already several campus layouts have been presented, one of which is illustrated on this page. Although this meeting is of great importance to the program, it is primarily for the purpose of explaining the plans of the Campaign Committee. Also attending the meeting will be members of the Board of Trustees and the committee chairmen.

Reardon Discipline and Character A visitor of late to the Western Reserve campus might be surprised at seeing a number of young fellows walking about the school grounds carrying bundles of bricks. "What can be the object in that?" he might to be pre- paring its boys for a career in bricklaying or hod-carrying." Amusing as it might seem looker, the task of carrying a heavy load of bricks from one building to another for a period of two or more weeks is hardly an enjoyable duty for the fellows who must carry them. And it is true that these poor unfortunates find no great pleasure in mak- ing beds and shining shoes for upperclass- men. It's no fun to be a valet and get no pay. E But that again is one of the regret- able states in which some of our newer boys find themselves-simply because of a little flaw in their character, ax wrong at- titude. They fail to recognize the sover- eignty of the upper class. By comparison with the pants-pressing, errand running, and beat-walking of mili- tary school these penalties are mild-hence, not too objectionable. Moreover, such pun- ishments can easily be avoided. If the freshman will learn to do as he is asked- provided the request is reasonable-and will do so without comment or argument, he will run little risk of exposing him- self to unpleasant disciplinary measures. And it may be true that these measures serve a constructive purpose. -They teach the newcomer that he must have respect for persons older than himself, those who might possibly know a little more about school life than he. It teaches him to use restraint, to be courteous, not to talk back. Having learned to regard senior classmen with deference and tact, he will be that much better prepared to handle difficult problems and people in later life. Character is built of things more intan- gible than bricks, though brick-carrying may help to build it. inquire.

It is the story of a student at that institution named Tom, and his girl named Lucky. It seems that way back in 1945 Tom met Lucky and at once they fell in love with each other. But Tom was at a disadvan- tage because he attended Western Reserve Academy and was unable to see her often enough. Many sleepless nights were spent longing for her companionship. However, Tom was not doing too well in his activi- ties and therefore was detained on the campus. He could no longer endure this separation. Therefore, as the only possible resort, Tom decided to be expelled from the student body by acquiring huge numbers of tenths. A very bright individual, Tom arose at 7:13 and, being a senior, he persuaded a freshman to French his bed. Arrving at breakfast in time to receive two lateness tenths, he got a pot of hot coffee which he poured down his favorite master's back. After breakfasting he returned to the dorm and short circuited all the electrical outlets. He arrived at chapel at 8:17 and finding chapel in session, he lowered himself from the balcony with a rope, while playing Humoresque on his Jew's harp. Later Tom meditated on the merits of going to his first period class. He decided to go, for after all wasn't his old man pay- ing for it? He climbed the fire escape and pounded on the back door of the business oflice, where he found a fellow student placing a bet with "Race Horse Charlie" on the outcome of the third at Ascot Park. At once Tom was told to leave by Albert, the auditor. He heard the bell for his sec- ond period class ring. Five minutes later he skipped into his English class, D. D. T. in hand. "You've earned yourself a tenth!" shout- ed his teacher. "Is that all?" replied Tom who then walked out disgusted. The next morning Tom found a note in his' box urging hint to report to the dean. The dean told him that since he realized Tom's difficulties, all of Tom's hard earned tenths would be excused.

S. However, the high spot of the day was the superb exhibition of football skill and agility as demonstrated by Reserve's football team of 1960 ijust in. time to reap the profits of the "Million Dollar Project"J. The play of these mighty midgets, as narrated by "Lucky" Divoll, drew a big hand from the audience. "Lucky" attempted to draw Harrison, Anderson, and Bannon into the game as ringers in order to Win a "gentlemen's" bet with his asso- ciate. However, the attempt was foiled, and Divoll was last seen heading toward Cleveland. fThey love him there.J Second in importance to this momentous occasion was the appearance of several types of lists. There is, of course, Herr Kitzmiller's "magic" list of a "one way ticket to Pearl Diving Heaven." Then there are the lists of numerous prefects Qthat's prefects, sonny, not perfectsj upon which are inscribed the names of those mis- erable offenders of Reserve's Golden Rule who "did unto others as they definitely would not wish others to do unto them."

It is the duty of these boys to take charge of the study halls in the absence of a master or to help the master on duty conduct the study pe- riod. It is necessary for the prefect on duty to be able to take charge of the study period in the same manner as it would be conducted by the master. Those boys who were chosen for their leadership, loyalty and self-control to be the prefects are: Tom Allchin, Lee Hoe- finghoff, Bill Laub, Tom Divoll, George Vaught, John Schaie, Dave Hollinger, Dick Wright, and Frank Austen. Already the system is working out well this year, and the boys are doing a fine job in taking the place of many of the busy masters who are helping out in or- ganizing the school's financial campaign. ilaunnr Bull For the Grading Period Ending October 16, 1945 Robert F.

Hayes Since the new infirmary was built, the standard of medical care has been very high. When last spring Mrs. Gerig left to join her husband, who had returned from the army, her place was capably filled by Miss Helen Hayes, whose home is in Lakewood, Ohio. Born in Goshen, New York, Miss Hayes was soon taken to New York City. She has spent the last ten years in Lakewood. Nursing was Miss Hayes' chosen profes- sion. Her training was taken at the Brook- lyn Hospital Training School. After as- sisting a Cleveland doctor for some time, she returned East to take her post-graduate work at the Polyclinic Hospital and Medi- cal School. Here she studied clinical and operating-room work. For the last five years she has been working with a Cleve- land specialist. Miss Hayes hopes to find time at Re- serve to continue her hobby of needlework. Her skill at this allows her to present her projects as valued gifts. She finds her work here both interesting and enjoyable. An attractive nurse, Miss Hayes makes visits to the infirmary less arduous than they otherwise might seem. She has al- ready become acquainted with the boys' art of getting excused from athletics and with a wisdom gained from years of train- ing prevents their taking advantage of well Mounir Sa'adeh Arrives Tuesday morning Mr. Mounir Sa'adeh arrived on the campus.

For 14 years Mr. Sa'adeh has been teaching at the American University in Beirut, Lebanon. He arrived in the United States earlier this week by airplane. Second Dance, November 35 Date Cards Must Be in Monday On November 3, a week from this Satur- day, there will be held in the Common Room of Cutler Hall the second of three dances in the fall term. As heretofore the nation's leading bands 'will furnish the music ably assisted by two of the brethren to be chosen from the stags. Date cards for this gala occasion must be in by the end of seventh period, October 29, while the stags are allowed two more days to decide whether they will favor the girls with their presence. The final hour for those who aren't dragging witches is seventh period on Hallowe'en, October 31. It might be well to note that the girls preferred the train as transportation to the last dance. The train from Cleveland leaves at 6:20 and arrives here at 6:45. This leaves three-quarters of an hour for a stroll around the acmpus before facing the strain of the reception line at 7:30. ' The ball will then proceed without delay until 11:00 only interrupted by a half-hour in- termission at 9:35. The returning train to Cleveland leaves at 11:25. The Akron train leaving at 6:30 arrives at 7:05, and the return trip leaves at 11:30.

The green clad squad executed its quick opening T formation plays with such precision that the De- troiters couldn't detect the location of the ball until it was too late. Many times Re- serve's halfbacks broke into the opposition's secondary so fast that the enemy backers- up had no chance to stop the advance. Choosing to defend the south goal, Re- serve kicked off to Cranbrook, who returned the leather to about their own forty. After three fruitless attempts to End openings in the Pioneer forward wall, the visitors punted to Dave Nicholson, who took the ball back to Reserve's thirty-five. From there the home team determinedly marched in a series of well executed plays to the Blue and White's three-yard line, where Jim Roush, Reserve's battling left half- back, took the ball over into the stripes for the team's first score. His attempted con- version failed. The second stanza passed without score although left halfback Denis Sullivan broke loose for a beautiful sixty-yard run to the end zone, a ,play which was called back on account of a penalty against Reserve. But "Sully" wasn't to be stopped yet. In the early part of the third period when the Green and White had placed the pigskin on the enemy six-yard line, he took the ball on an off-tackle smash behind beautiful blocking and darted across the goal line standing. The point was run over, making the score 13-0. Almost immediately after the next kickoff a Reserve backfield man intercepted a Cranbrook pass. Two plays later "Sully" took the ball on a slant play, broke loose and romped sixty yards for an- other Reserve touchdown. Roush again ran the extra point over. Teb then sent the second string into the game and they held Cranbrook during the time they played. Throughout the fourth quarter the tired team slowed up a little until our red hot halfback, Sullivan, took a punt on his own thirty-five and raced around the whole Cranbrook squad with the aid of superior blocking for another score, his third of the afternoon. When the extra point went over, the score stood 27-0 in favor of Re- serve, and the final gun found the score still the same. W. R. A.-27 Position Cranbrook-0 Howard ............ . . .L.

K , - Soccermen Roll Over U. S. Booters for Second Kennedy, Newly Elected Captain, leads His Team to Victory' For the third time in the last three weeks Malcolm Kennedy started the Reserve soc- cer team on a winning run when they played University School last Saturday. After scarcely five minutes of play the Green and White forwards got the ball into position and Kennedy worked a shot around the U. S. goalie. Nevertheless, the first pe- riod scoring session was not over yet as it didn't take long for the Maroon and Black foes to even up the score. They scored when the ball which goalie Hartsock had kicked bounced off one of the advancing U. S. forwards and shot into the goal . Then began a long struggle to work the ball into scoring position. The Reserve for- wards, Pierce and Garrigan on the wings, Critchiield, Nichols, Marton and Russell all trading of at the inside spots, and finally Kennedy at center, all seemed to be able to work their way into the opponents' de- fense zone but were unable to tally on their shots. The U. S. booters also gave Re- serve several threats but none came through. Thus the game went on till Re- serve got a corner kick. The kick was well done and Kennedy again got his foot on the ball to score for the Green and White. The third stanza went without any further score for either team. Reservefs one point lead was not enough to allow them to slow up their play so they fought even harder in the last quar- ter. U. S. was determined to even up the score again and they, too, were putting all'they had into the fight. In spite of all their efforts, however, Reserve held them to .their own end of the tield and thus came off the field the victors in the first soccer tangle with University School. And as ,he has in all the previous soccer games, Mal Kennedy held the scoring spotlight. He has scored all Reserve points through- out the season. Cleveland' gel Red. ...SERVE REQ.Q!3Q Robert S. Wilson, Capt. George Manlove, James Powers Speak at 'Kick-Oli' Meeting, Saturday Reserve's 125th Anniversary and Memor- ial Campaign was inaugurated last Sat- urday evening at a meeting in the chapel, preceded by a dinner to which the parents of every boy in the school were invited. The delicious turkey dinner, attended by about 450 boys and parents, enhanced by the flickering light of candles and served by students in white coats, was the first of its sort since before the war and was enthu- siastically received by everyone attending. The meeting in the chapel which followed the dinner was quite appropriately opened with "America," following which the Glee Club gave a short concert of sacred num- bers, closing with the Alma Mater. Mr. Robert S. Wilson, president of the school's Board of Trustees, was the first speaker. He outlined for us six require- ments for a good preparatory school: an outstanding headmaster, an able and de- voted faculty, students who range in the top third capacity level, a good tradition, an endowment, and a complete physical plant. Mr. Wilson felt that the first five Reserve very definitely possesses but that in the sixth, a complete physical plant, we have room for improvement. He con- cluded by explaining the plans for the pro- posed buildings. The second speaker of the evening was Captain George Manlove of the field ar- tillery and a member of the class of 1932. He praised the school for remaining small and thus preserving the personal relations between masters and boys, for remaining democratic, for maintaining an ideal bal- ance between scholarship and athletics, and for remaining non-military throughout the war years. Captain Manlove emphasized the importance an alumnus' prep-school days mean to him, especially how much they meant to the alumni on the battle- fronts of the world, and declared that it was gratifying to find upon coming back a building program in full swing. Mr. James H. Powers, Foreign Editor of the Boston Globe, was the meeting's prin- cipal speaker. His challenging address was warmly received and enthusiastically applauded. Mr. Powers pointed out to us that in our country today confusion and fear are widespread. The United States has within t'he past six years become the most powerful and wealthiest nation in the world. Our army and our navy are invinci- ble. The difiiculty lies in the fact that we do not know what to do with our newly acquired power. We need wise, well-rounded leaders to guide our nation in leading the world. The country cannot rely on science and industry alone. What counts is not the external things but those values to- ward which the people aspire. Mr. Powers placed the responsibility of meeting this challenge on the nation's edu- cational system. "This school," he de- clared, "is a dynamo out of which pour the leaders of tomorrow." The only way for Reserve to maintain prestige is to enhance its former glory. One of the best ways to do this is to expand our facilities toward producing the leaders of tomorrow. The speaker further emphasized the need for "restoring education to the mastery of its own household". In the age to come we shall need to reduce the emphasis upon sci- ence and place our approval upon the guid- ance and direction of a liberal education. Reserve is working towards that balance in education which this country needs, Mr. Powers concluded.

Reardon Alma Mater Every Reservite after he leaves the con- fines of the campus feels the sorrow that inevitably arises from separation from fa- miliar and fond associations. This has been crystal clear to anyone who has read letters from boys in the service, from con- versations with the alumni who return after an absence of some years and wish their v'isits could be much more frequent, and from the replies that have already be- gun to come in as a response to the appeal for memorial buildings. This loyalty of her sons for Reserve is an ever present reality. New boys soon sense the lasting devotion which many genera- tions have fostered on this campus. It is a matter of sound insight that long years ago some clear thinker thought Of his school as Alma Mater-Tender Mother. For it is from her after all that we absorb those noble purposes and ideals of manhood which stamp us with maturity. This spiritual development is the debt that the thankful student knows that he can never repay. In the rec0gniti0Y1 of his obligation lies perhaps the great hope of human progress, for to those boys who have caught the selfless spirit of Reserve, life can never again be purely acquisitive nor narrowly selfish. One of the best ways, we believe, to re- mind ourselves of this consideration which our school has for each of us is to sing more frequently for her and primarily to her. Why do we not practice the conduct of so many schools where after every var- sity function the boys rise and sing their Alma Mater? We feel that in so doing we should show our devotion to her who richly deserves it. Let us hope that the ideals for which Reserve has staunchly stood for almost a century and a quarter may find an ever greater place in the hearts of men. Let us remind ourselves by singing frequently the words of our Alma Mater: "Oh, long may time these things preserve Around thy walls, dear Old Reserve."

The word originating in Vermont, from which. it was undoubtedly carried to this region by a vagabond of one sort or another, has a soft, delicate mean- ing which becomes evident with its utter- ance. When your table head asks you if you want seconds, you gaze deeply into his eyes and, after indicating much deep thought on the situation, you reply-slowly in order to round out every syllable- "Na-aa." As I said, the word has caught on. All over the campus you hear: "Is this a first class production?" "Na-aa!" "Do we dine' like kings?" "Na-aa!" "Take out a sheet of paper." "Na-aa!" "Stand up!" "Na-aa!" "Sit down!" "Na-aa!" ll'Yes?!! "Na-aa!" And so on into the night. However, the exclamatory method of pro- nouncing is not always used. Overheard during intermission at the last dance was ft sweet feminine voice pleading, "Please kiss me." In a self-conscious quivering tone came the answer, "Na-aa." Yes, it's all you hear on the campus, and it presents its problems too. Songs will have to be rewritten fi. e. "Please Don't Say Na-aa."J Ah, I can see it all now. The guest speaker from Pimento University-good old P. U.-mounts the rostrum, looks out over the multitude of silent unintelligent faces and says in a voice acquired from years of addressing similar audiences: "Will Ober- lin beat Reserve?" "Na-aa!" answers the multitude with such force that the speaker is hurled against the organ. Are they right? Will Reserve's team, with two consecutive victories under their belts, upset their mighty foe? Tune in next Saturday for the next thrilling episode. ' B. H. W. November 1, 1945 RESERVE RECORD Page 31 Mounir So'odeh The history department has been en- hanced by the arrival of the latest addi- tion to the international school family. Mr. Mounir Sa'adeh arrived one week ago last Friday in Washington, D. C., after a flying trip of 36 hours, g X which he claims to have been one of the most inter- esting and excit- ing experiences of his life. Born in Damascus, Syria, he grow up in Beirut, Lebanon, where he attend- ed the American University and in 1930 took up teaching there. He taught history and ethics, a combina- tion of psychology and sociology. It was while he was teaching that he met Mr. J. Frederick Waring. Mr. Sa'adeh thought that Mr. Waring enjoyed his travels and benefited more by them than most travelers. In the summer of 1928 he came to the United States to visit and was much impressed. In 1935 and 1938 he made two trips to Europe, the Hrst one an edu- cational trip on which he heard lectures at Oxford in England. The second was a trip through Italy, Germany, England, Holland, and France, to get a first hand impression of the political situations in these coun- tries. In 1937 he was married and now has a son, David, who will be seven in November. Mr. Sa'adeh expects his fam- ily and his personal belongings in three or four weeks. When-asked what impressed him most at this academy, Mr. Sa'adeh said that stu- dents here differ from those in Syria in that they do not take much interest in politics. In Syria the students take more interest in both national and international politics, often participating in political demonstrations. Also he noticed that there was more academic seriousness here and more school life. He said that our alma mater was blessed by not being in a city. Interested in photography, he used to de- velop his own pictures at his home besides taking them before war shortages inter- rupted his hobby. At present he has hopes of obtaining some more equipment and re- newing his avocation. Mozmir Safadeh Nesbitfs Squad leads Close league Grid Contest As the sixth week of league football comes to the close, one finds the team headed by quarterback and Captain Dave Nesbitt in the lead by the narrow margin of one point. In the opening game of the season Nesbitt's team was defeated, 6-0, by a more powerful eleven captained by Leeb. After the first defeat the squad sparked a drive and succeeded in winning the next four games. After the first three games Leeb's team was greatly handicapped by the loss of one of its star ground gainers, Jim Connors, who received a broken leg in a game with Brady's squad. Since his departure the team has failed to win a game, but has tied three. They are now in last place with only seven points following their defeat last Thursday by Brady's team, 12-0. Brady's team, which trailed in last place for a considerable time at the beginning of the season, staged a splendid comeback. The cause for their sudden upswing is probably due to the brilliant fullback, Tom Divoll who, since his association with the league, has succeeded in becoming one of its leading scorers as well as one of its best ground gainers. All in all, the three teams look fairly well matched and we can be sure that the race will prove exciting to its finish. - Do Academy Boys Have Out-Grown Clothing for West Souhurg? Responding to Western Reserve Acad- emy's invitation to join in sending relief to the war-stricken village of West Sou- burg, from which the school's "new-old" bell has its name, Hudson Village has, over the week end, collected approximately 300 pounds of warm clothing, underwear and shoes for the little Dutch town. While there seems to be plenty of coats and suits for men and women, and a reasonable supply of dresses for young girls, there are prac- tically no boys' clothes in the lot. Mrs. Harrison Kitzmiller, who heads the drive in the village, appealed to Academy students at Civil Assembly, Wednesday, to ask their mothers to look over clothes at home for out-grown garments which may be added to the boxes. Barring delay in getting the necessary lightweight Eleven Trium In a hard fought tussle with the light- weights of Stow High School the men of Reserve came out on the long end of a 13 to 9 score. Reserve drew first blood in the scoring when, after Ed Winslow had intercepted a pass, Larry Wehr cracked over from the five. The try for point failed. Our second score came in the third period when Huey Jae intercepted a pass and went thirty yards for the score. This time the try for point phs Over Stow was good. In the last quarter Northfield went to work, manufacturing a safety out of a high pass from center and a touchddwn when the left halfback took a lateral and ran forty yards for the score. Northfield con- verted and the score became 13 to 9. For the first game of the year Reserve showed up as well as could be expected although the blocking and tackling can be improved. Mr. Barr hopes to polish these in the days before the team plays again. 'R' Men Malcolm Kennedy, "R" man, came to Reserve in the fall of 1944 in time to play soccer for the Green and White hooters and immediately began to prove his worth. He won a starting position as center-for- lulvlvg H ward on the suc- cessful team last year. 52, -A - e This year he is , , zy' . . irlg . again at the same position, but a J knee injury kept f '5 him out of the at - g a m e Saturday. Until then he had s p a r k e d t h e -I ' - eleven to a record I of two wins against one de- feat by scoring all the Pioneer goals. His teammates showed their regard of him when they elected him captain of the '45 team. Coming from Trinidad, where he attained his soccer prowess, Malcolm was not ac- quainted with American sports when he came to Reserve. Nevertheless, in the spring he showed great promise as a miler, and much is expected of him this spring in this event. We are proud of the soccer skill of Mal- colm Kennedy, "R" man, Q Malcolm Kennedy clearing papers, Academy boys' and mas- ters' gift of approximately 250 pairs of galoshes should reach Holland by Christ- mas.

BOYS' CLOTHING SECOND FLOOR, HURON-PROSPECT Zilfhr Halle Bros. Go. Page 32 RESERVE RECORD November 1, 1945 Gridders Trounce Weak Chagrin Falls Team, 41-0 The Green and White gridders mixed power, deception, and passing before a large Parents' Day crowd last Saturday to crush a weak Chagrin Falls eleven, 41-0. Virtu- ally every player on the bench set foot on the field as Teb tried to give experience to the second and third teams when a comfortable margin had been attained. After a long kick-off by Jim Roush, the Orange and Black of Chagrin Falls took the leather on their own thirty and after a few plays were forced to punt. The larger Reserve squad then went into of- fensive action and marched steadily against scrappy opposition to the enemy three where right half Roush darted through the line for a touchdown and six points. How- ard's attempted conversion failed. Chagrin took the kick-off and again, failed to make any substantial gain and punted out to the fifty. Eleven Green jerseys again started to maneuver toward the goal posts under the able direction of Dave Nicholson. On a shift play behind good blocking Dave Hollinger battled from the six to pay dirt for Reserve's second score. This time Nat Howard sent the ball spinning through the uprights for the extra point and the score stood 13-0 in favor of the home team. The second quarter found Reserve still on the offensive and on a power play OH tackle Denis Sullivan drove from the twenty-five- yard line to the end zone for another six points. The kick was good, making the score 20-0. At this point the whole second string entered the fray and held the enemy until a well placed punt rolled out of bounds on the Reserve five. A bad return punt put the ball in Chagrin's possession on the Green and White twelve, first and ten to go. At this point the second team really dug in and thwarted four enemy at- tempts to advance the ball. Then from the shadow of their own goal posts the team marched out to the Chagrin forty before the half-gun sounded. Teb's able second team played almost the entire second half, scoring twice. From the twenty-five Dave Hollinger threw a pretty pass to Quarterback Dick Rogers who pivoted around a would-be tackler and dashed across the goal line standing. The other score was made by Right Halfback Jack Renner who fought his way over from the five. Both extra points were kicked by Rogers. The first team, having sat out almost the whole second half on the side- lines, re-entered the game and went into action. Taking a Chagrin punt on the fifty, Dave Nicholson started to the left and slipped the pigskin to Sullivan on a beauti- tiful reverse play. "Sully" romped around the completely baffled Falls squad for his second tally of the game. After Howard's third extra point boot the third-string took over and finished the game. The lop-sided score is partly due to the very weak opposition but much credit is due to the teamwork and fight of the squad. The next two contests, Oberlin and U. S., will be extremely tough and the team is out to win them both. W. R. Academy-4l Position Chagrin Falls-0 Howard ............... .L. E ................... Green Miller ..... . .......... .L.

By Narrow Margin Reserve's second soccer loss of the sea- son marred the Green and White athletic achievements last Saturday. In their sec- ond game with University School our boot- ers were definitely in a weaker position than they were the week before. Due to a badly strained leg, Malcolm Kennedy, star center forward and captain, was unable to play. Throughout the game his absence was defi- nitely evident and his scoring ability was sorely needed. It was also evident that, playing on their own field, the U. S. boot- ers had a slight but continuous edge in pep over their opponents. As in the previous week's game the play at first seemed very even. There were, however, several definite threats on the Green and White goal. Everything showed that U. S. was out to get revenge for their defeat the week before. Most of the U. S. scoring plays were started by their right wing, Graham. It was during the second quarter that just such a play was started and successfully completed by their left inside and present captain, Bell. Then the play continued as before, very even and fast but with no more tallies for either side. The Green and White for- wards had the ball in their opponents' de- fense area many times but were unable to score. The Reserve halfbacks, acting captain Skip Newell, Corky Phillips, Dan Collister, and Bill Cleminshaw, worked hard to feed the ball to the adjusted for- ward line with Chuck Critchfield playing center forward for Kennedy. Thus Re- serve was not able to even the score nor did U. S. have the power to increase it in their favor .

Greeted at the receiving line by Mr. and Mrs. Par- ker, Terry Garrigan, secretary of the coun- cil, and his date Ann Whitacre, each cou- ple then danced to records played by Dave Nesbitt and Bill Rabe. Although many couples were persuaded to stay in during intermission because of the sudden cold, a starry sky lured quite a few out between 9:30 and 10. Coke and doughnuts were served and groups gathered around the pianos in both the common room and sen- ior coffee room to listen to requested num- bers. The social committee composed of Mr. and Mrs. Parker, Mr. and Mrs. Clemin- shaw, and Mr. and Mrs. Jones joinegl in the dancing. Just after intermission Mr. Pflaum walked in. After a quick look around, he clapped Dave Nesbitt on the shoulder and exclaimed, "Gosh, that's swell music, Dave, but I can't find the band any- where!" Indeed the music was good. Bas- ing their selections on a request sheet drawn up by almost everyone before the dance, Dave and Bill played them sweet and slow almost all evening, since Vaught's and Divoll's selections had been crossed off the list. After such a successful dance, Reserve is looking forward to the "R" Club dance November 17. For the "R" Club dance date cards must be in the hands of Mrs. Litzell by seventh period tomorrow. Stag requestsmust be in by seventh period on Tuesday, Novem- ber 13. Otmer Gandee's band will play. Honor Roll Boys and Prelects Entertainecl at Near-by Park On Sunday, November 4, the prefects and those boys who made Honor Roll or Hon- orable Mention were invited to a picnic din- ner by Dean Mickel, who was assisted in the preparations by Mr. Husat. Of the boys invited the following were able to come: Ayers, Buchman, Brassert, Clarke, W. Cleminshaw, Collister, Dewey, Garri- gan, Gibans, Gleason, Gulick, W. Haggerty, R. Kaufman, Kramer, Kyman, Leeb, Man- ning, Newell, Nicholson. and Roush. The boys left for Virginia Kendall Park at 3:30, arriving at 4:00. After everyone helped carry the provisions to a suitable place, a football game was started in which most of the boys participated. The rest went on short hikes, finding several caves which were of interest to all. At five o'clock the supper, which con- sisted of huge hamburgers and baked beans, was ready. After healthy appetites had been satisfied, the party returned home at about six o'clock. Vesper Speaker Reserve's guest speaker at vesper service next Sunday will be Michael Dorizas, professor of geography in the Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. Profes- sor Dorizas, well known throughout the world in the field of geography, has also made a name for himself in athletics. While at Penn as a stu- dent, he was a good football player and the inter-collegiate wrestling champ. Good-nights at Second Council Dance I945 War Chest Reaches 51790 Total Mr. Culver, director of Reserve's nine- teen forty-five War Chest drive, has an- nounced its outcome, exclusive of twenty- nine boys who have not yet been solicited for their donations. These are primarily town boys, with whose contributions the figures will no doubt be considerably aug- mented. Besides the customary 3500 given by the trustees, the faculty this year donated 8793.45 and the students, 349734, making a total of S1790.79. Unfortunately, this is a decrease, at the present time, compared with last year's results, which amounted to S500 from the trustees, 5829.40 from the faculty, and 8643.65 from the students, a a total of S1973.05. The War Chest Committee has allotted to Cleveland two hundred and fifty dollars, and to Akron, which includes the Hudson War Chest, nine hundred dollars. The re- mainder of approximately six hundred and fifty dollars will go to several organizations in Hudson, such as the Boy and Girl Scouts, the Parent-Teachers' Association, and the various churches. We can all further help this worthy cause and exceed last year's totals by giv- ing more. Next time a prefect comes around, add a little to your original pledge, and we can go over the top! I - Elections and lnitiations Feature 'R' Club Meeting , On Wednesday evening, October 17, the varsity lettermen of the R Club met in the second floor common room of Cutler Hall for election of their 1945-46 officers and other business. After nominations had been made and ballots cast, the vote count- ers reported these results. The members had elected Jim Roush to lead them, Dave Nesbitt as second in command and George Vaught to the important office of secretary- treasurer. After this election several new candidates who had won letters in spring sports were initiated into the organizations. The new members are Bill Rabe, Denis Sullivan, Bill Marton, Tom Allchin, Doug Hasbrouck and Bob Rodman. Under the supervision of Coach R. J. Theibert, R Club advisor, several discus- sions were held on business matters of the club. One point decided upon was the spon- soring by the club of a dance to be held November 17. -- ,, Dr. Hayden's Progress Satisfactory Dr. Hayden continues to improve slowly. His general condition is about as good as can be expected.

Reardon West Souburg While the people of America rejoice in the termination of the war and are plan- ning for the days of plenty which lie ahead, there are many who cannot hope for the prosperity which we are certain to enjoy. When we of Reserve think of the devasta- tion wrought in occupied countries, our thoughts necessarily turn to the village of West Souburg. Here we realize that homes are in shambles, food is scarce, clothing almost unobtainable. Moreover, the oppor- tunity for these 'people to help themselves in any marked degree will not eXiSt for sometime to come, for twice each day when the tides come in, the village is covered with sea water. Not only does this make it impossible to grow anything, but it causes transportation facilities to become almost completely inactive. It seems most appropriate as the Thanks- giving and Christmas seasons approach that' we have this opportunity to remember those who are less fortunate than we. It is only the fact of geographic location that has kept us from experiencing the same hard- ships which they have encountered. The money which has already been col- lected from masters and students has gone into the purchase of rubber footwear which will soon be on its way to Holland. The town of Hudson has had a very successful collection of clothing which has been cleaned and is being made. ready for Ship' ment. Now it is the school's chance to help in the collection of articles which have lost their serviceableness to their individual owners but still have a considerable amount of usefulness to others who may put them to use. To boys who must walk through sodden or water-filled streets, woolen socks, a warm pair of trousers or a heavy coat will bring not only physical comfort but the consciousness that there are many who believe in brotherhood in a world that iS seemingly heartless.

His heinous sin was noticed by Emanuel, third in charge of the campus crew, who told him to report to the dean. "I deem it wise for you to hurry," said he. Fear struck, little Oliver headed toward the business odice where, upon arrival, he was told to report to the office of the campus crew. He reported to Albert, chief Bamboozeleer, who told him that he must relandscape the entire ground around that part which he so mercilessly desecrated. Equipped with the school's landscaping machine, Oliver started out. However, he soon got into trouble. Never having driven the machine before, he felt quite at sea behind the wheel, and soon the machine went out of control and careened wildly into the hockey pond. A. moose grazing in the pasture nearby grasped the situation and suggested that he see the business manager. The business manager said that since Oliver had utterly demolished the machine, he must pay the school S645,00i0 in ten days. Horrified, Oliver decided that the only pos- sible way for him to raise the money would be for him to let the Hudson bank build the new vault around him and then he could take the money as soon as it was put in. It took Oliver nine days to accomplish this task. He then changed all the money into pennies and took them to the business of- fice, where the business manager's secretary was kept busy for days counting the 64 mil- lion pennies. She was horrified to find that Oliver had short-changed the school fifteen cents. At once a meeting of the Executive Committee was called to look into this matter of grand larceny. But they decided that the case was too complicated for them to handle and after several preliminary stops it found its way into the U. S. Supreme Court. At present Oliver is awaiting trial. How- ever, the legal proceedings are being de- layed because Justice Burton is awaiting his D. D. T. degree from Western Reserve Acad- emy. Moral: Don"t cut campus! J. M. and B.

Let us be ready to do our part for those who have carried our burdens in the past. just ton the CReconcil My English teacher will probably give me another verbal lashing for not choosing a topic that is new and different, but with my reader's fnotice the singularj best in- terests at heart I shall endeavor to inform the innocent concerning merit score excuses. This can best be done by presenting a few choice examples of said excuses. Example QA! is the more intelligent type. He begins: "Dear Dean"-This greet- ing gets things ofl' to a. chummy start, and the official title is sure to make an impres- sion-"I realize the momentous task you have to perform, and it is with great hu- mility that I must ask you to correct an error on my merit score wherein you have marked me absent chapel and given me .2. Now, Dean, you know me to be a very devout individual who certainly wouldn't miss chapel. However, to prove that I was there I have had the boys who sit beside me, in the first two rows in front of me, and in the firstltwo rows in back of me, sign this note. I trust that this is sufficient proof that I was present. However, do not take this error too hard, Dean. Remember the words of Benjamin Franklin: "To err is human." The note is signed: "Sincerely, Peter Michaelides!" Example QB! is the executive type- brief and to the point-who begins: "Mr. Mickel"-this is too formal a beginning, and the Dean must read further in order to form an opinion of the writer-"Please excuse .3 for T. S. B. QThrowing Snow Ballsjg there has been no snow!"-"Schaie." Example CCD can't exactly be called stu- pidg there's a better word! He starts off' with: "Dere Mirit Score"-a beautiful be- ginning-"Why did you give me them temfs this week? All the hole week I have been a good boy. I is the victum of sircum- stances! Just because I frew a brick at the guest speaker, I get a disturbance temf. When I put that honey on the master's chair, I didn't mean no harm. Why did you have to go and give me three more dis- turbance temfs? And just because the bell don't ring in the morning, you go and give me six more temfs. Come on now, Mirit Score, lay off'n me." This little epistolary masterpiece was written by--in case you hadn't already guessed-L. Wehr. Well now, of the three examples, I sug- gest that you watch your step and don't get any "temfs" at all. Then you won't have to worry about writing excuses, which should make the Dean pretty happy too! B. H. W. EA U. S.!

C. Allen was appointed a trustee at a meeting of the Board on Sunday to fill the position left vacant by the death of Mr. Harry L. Finley in the summer of 1944. The new trustee has been a resident of Hudson for many years and has had four sons who attended Reserve. Mr. Allen is the Executive Vice President of the Ogle- bay-Norton Company of Cleveland. George Wilcox v Substituting for Mr. Tepper during his absence as instructor in the machine shop is Mr. George Wilcox, who is also helping Bill Hoffman to keep the gym in order- and the boys, too. To the fifty boys under his instruction he is now teaching the ele- mentary principles which obtain in a well- ordered machine shop. He has much ex- perience in this field, having worked in the Morse Instrument Company all through the war. He was planning to go to Colorado before he assumed his duties here. He still hopes to fulfill this ambition. Born and raised in Streetsboro, Ohio. Mr. Wilcox was the leader of a 4-H Club there. In Kent State University he sang tenor in the Glee Club. He has played the trumpet for eight years. He likes baseball and basketball and is considered a good player in both.

The stunts and games began with a carry race in which every member of both the Greens and Whites took part. The contest began a trifle slowly with the smaller members of both teams, but as the size of the boys grew, so did the general interest. The contest ended in a Green victory with "Tiny" Miller escorting Pete Gullick from one end of the gym floor to the other. . More games of one sort or another fol- lowed, the best of which was an obstacle race which the Greens also succeeded in capturing. The object was to run the haz- ardous course around the gym, drink a bot- tle of coke, and then crawl through a hur- dle to the finish. Pete Gulick was outstand- ing once again when he demonstrated his ability to down a bottle of coke in one swallow. Other events were the pie eat- ing contest won by Bob Breckinridge, and the suitcase race in which the president of North Hall, John Schaie, starred. Last but not least came a battle of the prefects in which the medicine ball was the center of attraction. The object of the game was ,to hit one of the baskets with the ball. "Shorty" Newell was the first who suc- ceeded in accomplishing this and in so do- ing, carried off the laurc-ls for the Greens. The evening was brought to a close at about 10 o'clock by the serving of coke and doughnuts. Mr. Wallace scores again as a planner of stunt nights.

Page 36 RESERVE RECORD November 8, 1945 Foothall Squad Trounces Oberlin High in last Home Game of Season The Green and White made it three in a row Saturday when the Pioneers decisively defeated Oberlin High, 25-0, on the home field. With only the U. S. game remain- ing, the Pioneers have an Ieven score of wins and losses. The Tebmen have rolled over the opposition in their last three games by four or more touchdowns to none for the opponents. They have amassed 93 points in the three contests. The first score came in the initial quarter, and from then on the eleven tallied in each period. Dave Nicholson pivoted out of his quarterback position to throw a telling pass into Nat Howard's arms from the Red and White's 40yard stripe. Nat took the ball in the clear and romped over the double line. He then sent the leather spinning through the uprights for the extra point. The Reservites had the ball at the begin- ning of the second quarter when Bob Joslyn entered the game. Bob was one of the main factors which led to a 60-yard march and Denis Sullivan's score on an off-tackle play from the six. The try for point failed. Jos- lyn has been out of action since an injury in practice two weeks ago. In the third stanza Joslyn really put a needed spark into the team that led them to their third touchdown. He plunged over from the five-yard line. The attempted con- version was blocked. Later in the same quarter Sullivan went into the air to intercept an Oberlin pass. He then dashed down the sidelines to pay dirt. However, the ball was called back to the visitors' forty marker, and the Pioneers were penalized fifteen yards for clipping. This was the second time that a long break- away run of Sullivan was called back. The first recall was in the second quarter. It was "Cowboy" Joslyn who seemed to inspire the team and who made the fourth score. On off-tackle plays and smashes through center Joslyn led the attack deep into the Oberlin territory. Then from the four he again scored on the same center plunge. The score stood at 25 to 0 after this tally, and with five minutes remaining in the period Teb sent the second team in to finish the fray. They took possession of the ball but were forced to punt after their offense repeatedly failed. As the game ended they were being pushed deep into their own half of the field by successive passes in the center of the Reserve secondary by the Red and VVhite's quarterback. The Green and White showed a good pass attack and a surprise punch through the line in their last game in preparation for the U. S. fray next Saturday. W. R.

Reserve drew first blood on the visitors' field when Sharp scored from the five-yard line in the first period. Northfield secured its points in the second and third periods by the hard smashes of Bruno Spindler, who scored both touchdowns. Reserve's starting line included the fol- lowing: Jae and Read at ends, Thaw and Rechsteiner at tackles, Simmon and Mar- shall at guards, and Swanston at center. The backs were Winslow, Sharp, Wehr, and Peterson. Reserve Victorious Over Shadyside, 3-if Critchfield, Kennedy Score Goals Contending with chilly weather and a slimy field, Reserve's and Shadyside's soc- cer teams battled in a game early Saturday afternoon, and the final score was Reserve 3, Shadyside 1. Shadyside, an old Inter- state League rival from Pittsburgh, has won only one game this season, and the Pioneer hooters were quick to recognize the visitors' faults. Shadyside's first string, however, fought hard against Reserve's strong defense through the whole game with few substitutions. After only two or three minutes play in the first quarter Chuck Critchfield, left in- side, shot and tallied for Reserve. Again in the second quarter "Critch" took a pass and sent the ball past the goalie into the net for a second score. Reserve's third goal was made in the third quarter by Cap- tain Mal Kennedy, who returned to his cen- ter forward position after being forced out of Reserve's second game with U. S. be- cause of a bad knee. In the fourth quar- ter Shadyside rallied against Reserve's second string and the left inside shot one at close range beyond goalie Hartsock's reach. By half time Coach Roundy had already sent in second string substitutions for the forward line. This was the last game in which next year's expected team could get practice, since it will take all the first string7s skill to beat U. S. this Saturday. Therefore, all through the third quarter substitutions were made until everyone on the bench had a chance to play. The start- ing halves were Collister at left, Newell at center and Cleminshaw at right. Carter and Miller kept the ball out of danger while the second string forwards were playing, and Stansbury had to give up his goalie job to Hartsock when he was hurt saving a ball in the second quarter. Corky Philips, who has moved from right half to right inside, has scored quite a few goals during practice, and with Mal Ken- nedy back at center forward, the team's hopes for a second victory over U. S. are high. During the first half the ball was seldom out of enemy territory, and had Re- serve played the ball with less care and more aggressiveness around the goal, the score might have been higher. Saturday is the booters' last game--its biggest game. This week the team has practiced with every mistake of the season in mind. The game will be played on U. S.'s home ground, which is as good a place as any, the team agrees, to BEAT U. S. n nt ss P R I N T E R S ' 22I2-I8 Suuerior Ave. 0 MAin 209I 0 Cleveland. 0. Cleveland senve eecono VOLUME XXII-No. I0 Glee Club Sings Again ForCleveland Campaign Last Friday night, November 9, the Glee Club attended and furnished music for a meeting for the 51,000,000 campaign. After a hearty dinner the club warmed up on My Country 'Tis of Thee and then sang a Prayer of Thanksgiving, Massa, Dear, We Sail the Ocean Blue, The Reserve Fight Song, and the Alma Mater. Immediately after the concert the varsity football and soccer players who were members of the Glee Club returned to the campus to rest. After the singing was over, Mr. Lewis B. Williams, chairman of the board of the National City Bank of Cleveland and chair- man of the campaign, presented Mr. Robert Wilson, president of our Board of Trustees, who discussed the elements of a good pre- paratory school and pointed out the purpose of the campaign. The chairman next in- troduced Mr. Matthew Fleming, alumnus of the class of 1933, who spoke briefly about his reactions to his experiences in the school and to the campaign. Then Dr. Williams of the faculty gave a convincing analysis of the shortcomings of our science laboratories due to lack of suitable room. The proposed science build- ing would remove this difficulty and make it possible for students to make studies on their own, which is now impossible in our limited science department. Immediately following Dr. Williams, Mr. McGill, as- sistant headmaster, was introduced. He spoke of the inconveniences of Seymour Hall, once well adapted to the school but now outmoded due to the larger enrollment. These included the necessity of basement classrooms, the lack of locker space, and the inability to house adequately the many activities which the school considers im- portant in the general plan of education. The meeting was well attended, and the enthusiasm shown encourages the commit- tee to believe that everyone will undertake seriously his responsibility for the success of the campaign. "World Economy" Subiect OF Civil Assembly Talk On Tuesday morning Dr. Alvin Hanson addressed the school in Civil Assembly. The speaker is Professor of Economics at Harvard College as well as at the Graduate School of Political Economy. Speaking to the school on the subject of "World Econ- omy", he pointed out the influence which the economic condition of the United States has upon the rest of the world. He stated that the economic situation in the United States is one which tends to fluctuate a great deal, thus causing trouble in the far corners of the earth. 0412?

Reardon Finished--A Good Athletic Season t The fall sports season completed last Saturday was a successful one, successful both from the standpoint of team ,perform- ance and individual participation. There have been years when our teams have fin- ished the season undefeated. Though this was not such a year, still it was a year far surpassing the two previous. The football and soccer teams fought hard throughout the season. They had to, for our opponents were strong. From the time practice was begun in early Septem- ber, through October, with its rain-soaked fields, and early November, with its lm- usually cold weather-there was no let-uP- Team support?-it was good, but not ex- ceptional. Attendance to games was satis- factory, but not as regular as it might have been. What was most evident was lack of pep. Cheering seemed to be a comparatively half-hearted effort. The coaches can no doubt remember yea1'S when spirit was not as good as it was this year. Yet they-and we, too-can remem- ber the enthusiastic support shown by the student body at last year's University School game. This is the mark for which we must shoot in the months ahead. The outlook for the athletic season to come is good. We are fortunate in having a large number of returning lettermen. Moreover, we have high hopes for last year's second team boys and are anxious to develop the abilities of our campus new- comers. The world picture as a whole is vastly better than was that of a year ago. The coming of peace has brought about a re- conversion to prewar occupations. The wheels of peacetime industry are turning again. Already athletic equipment, unob- tainable during the war emergency, is re- turning to the markets. The process is slow, but each day brings us that much closer to the time when our teams can once again compete with rivals from schools of the Interstate League, discontinued during the war emergency because of transporta- tional difficulties. There is every reason to believe that the winter and spring athletic seasons may well rank with the best of former years. Let's make this hope a reality. MITHDUT 1Id'?VE 1 for.: gmt ton the CReconcil In preparation for the forthcoming dance some of our little men will be shav- ing for the first time. You boys can per- form this yearly task in six seconds flat if you don't mind carrying the scars throughout the remainder of your life, or you can turn the thing into a momentous project requiring many laborious hours.

Examine innocent of its mean- ,, your razor to make sure you have a. blade changing from school to school hoping even- tually to find one where the word was un- known. Finally at fourteen, still hopeful, Joe arrived at W. R. A., where to his horror he discovered that the Academy not only has heard about it, but even has ideas concerning the methods to be employed. One day, for reasons which he was never able to understand, Joe was invited to be- come a member of Dr. H. Williams' course on "How to Study." He was assured that there was NO STIGMA attached to this invitation-rather it afforded a GREAT OPPORTUNITY. He partook of this chance of a lifetime and after three stabs at it emerged as an alumnus of the course N. C. L. Cwhich in no way refers to the high cost of living, but means, to put it plainly, Non Cum Laudej. Fortified with all the secrets of how to go about the business, Joe found himself in second period Study Hall one fine morn- ingg on his right hand his Latin Grammar, on his left "How to Study in Fifty Easy Lessons"-notes from Dr. W. himself. "Rule 1-Get to work immediately" Joe reads and feverishly opens the Latin text- book to the declehsion of qui, quae, quod, the morrow's assignment. At this point Joe concludes that the hundreds of outlines he made on such subjects as "Taking Out the Tackle on 42" or "Topic Sentences in Essay Writing" are of little avail. Try as he may he can find no topic sentence in qui, quae, quod. "I'll just have to memorize it," he thinks with tragic despair, and then recalls the rule about association. For instance, if a man's name is "Pancake," you associate it with "breakfast," and naturally remember him always as "Mr. Waffle." "It's worth trying," murmurs Joe. "Qui, quae, quodg cuius, cuius, cuiusg cui, cui, cuig--pigeons. Hmmm, pigeons-dance Saturday night- years to learn-and you are all ready to begin hacking away at your face.

Next you have to wipe the blood away from your face long enough to smear it with "Aroma of Skunk Cabbage" or "Evening in Zachary". To cover up that odor, you'd better pat on "Penelope Pinklebaum's Power-Plus Pow- der" with perhaps a touch of "Bertram Bultzenschnapper's Burnt Boot." Slap bandaids over all the cuts, leaving slits for the eyes and nose-this doesn't apply to Hartsock or Perciball-and you are ready for the big evening.

Our guest spoke before several classes in the de- partments of history and social science and entertained with stories of his athletic tri- umphs while seated at meals with various groups. It was unfortunate that the meeting in the gymnasium on Sunday evening had to be curtailed due to the necessity of Prof. Dorizas' return for Monday's classes at the Wharton School in Philadelphia.

Rallies Create Spirit for U.S. Games Scenes at Reserve rally The nights of November eighth and ninth were filled with the uproarious shouts and cheers of a two-day rally for the Reserve- U. S. games. Because the Glee Club could not be present Friday evening, the rally was extended over two days and was a great success. On Thursday night, immediately after dinner, the entire student body assembled in front of Cutler Hall where flares were lit, and after a few initial cheers, a snake dance was formed. The wild company, accompanied by a truck supporting the tasty ice cream cones, was given the boys by Saywell's Drug Store, and Thursday's rally was brought to an end. The second half of the rally was perhaps not as loud as the first part, due to the absence of the Glee Club, but it had just as much spirit in evidence. Supplemented this time with a speech by Coach Theibert, the rally was held near a giant bonfire, and cheers were led by Leeb, Holtkamp and Jones.

Page 40 RESERVE RECORD November 15, 1945 Soccer Squad Falls to Maroon and Black, l-0 While a huge cheering section watched tensely from the sidelines, Reserve's cleat- men were defeated for the second time this season by the U. S. soccer team, 1-0. With terrific starting vigor Reserve's booters immediately began pounding the U. S. goal with shots from far out. This early offen- sive failed as the U. S. forwards moved back into their own defensive area to keep the ball out of danger. With only a few minutes of the first quarter left, U. S. brought the ball down and threatened the Reserve goal. During this drive a foul was called in front of Reserve's goal which ap- peared at first to be against U. S., but which proved to be made by a Reserve player who had unwittingly fouled U. S.'s forward Chandler. The penalty kick, shot at close range, was kicked hard and fast at the center of the goal and went through the backs and Goalie Hartsock's hands for a U. S. tally. Thinking that they could tie and beat this score in the remaining three quarters, the Reserve team poured it on in the last of the first and the beginning of the sec- ond. However, Reserve received a double blow: Mal Kennedy, captain and center forward, was forced out temporarily be- cause of his bad knee, and Skip Newell, cen- ter half, was hit on the knee and forced out until half time was called. n Critchfield moved from left inside to center forward, and Nichols took left inside. Meanwhile, Phillips had been replaced by Russell and Marton alternating at right inside. Clem- inshaw moved from right half to center half and Fritz Smith came in to take right. Garrigan was out at left wing for a time and Ryan went in, while Pierce continued to hold his right wing. Collister remained at left half, and Carter and Miller stayed at full. By half time this new lineup had not been able to tie the score. In the third quarter Skip Newell and Mal returned to their positions, while Pierce went to right inside, and Garver took his place on the wing. With renewed ef- forts Reserve tried to make a score, and it was soon seen that it was U. S.'s object not to score again but to keep Reserve from having the opportunity. The backs, feeding the ball well to the rapidly chang- ing forward line, often misjudged the field and sometimes sent the ball far over the end lines. Not only did the forward line fail to receive these passes successfully, but the backs neglected to make sure of their placements. The backs also made the mistake of continuing to play a defensive game after U. S. scored, although they stymied Bell and Graham, the only two threats on the enemy side. Perhaps on Re- serve's larger field the Academy booters might have had a better chance to defeat U. S. in this third game, and, although Reserve outplayed the preppers most of Saturday's game, the score remains in U. S.'s favor, which is what counts in spite of all excuses. Reserve Stops Unclefeatecl U.S. Season Sullivan Scores Touchdown ancl Extra Point to Beat U.S., 7-6 Drawing the first blood in the game at University School Saturday, the Pioneer eleven defeated the Maroon and Black, 7 to 6. This victory over the previously un- defeated Clevelanders brought the Reserve football season to a very successful close. Out to keep the school rivals from their first unbeaten season in seventeen years, the Green and White were driving and tak- ing the fight to the enemy throughout the game. The first quarter started with Jim Roush's kick to University. The Preppers took the ball and were able to drive for two first downs before the Reserve line could handle Brad Jones, the fullback, and force him to punt. The Reserve offense was of little effect against the University line when the Teb- men took possession of the ball for the first time. Soon Bob Joslyn fell back while the signals were being called and quick kicked deep into the opposition's territory. The first quarter ended with both teams unable to make any substantial headway. The second period went the same way until nearly half way through it. Then the Teb- men opened their pass attack with Jim Roush throwing University's downfall. Jim let go with a long one to end George Vaught far in the Maroon chalk stripes to open the attack. George took the ball, evaded two would-be tacklers and went to the twenty-yard line before he was pulled down. The officials called the play back, and the Reservites were five yards nearer their own goal line instead of being within easy scoring distance. On a series of flat passes the Pioneers skirted the Preppers' ends. Then when they were down on the six-yard marker, Nick slipped another flat pass over the University's end and Denis Sullivan trickled into pay dirt. Nat Howard's at- tempted conversion was blocked by the op- ponents, but Sully picked up the loose ball Vaught snags one .V and raced over the slant lines to score the extra point, which turned out to be the winning unit. As the half ended, University connected on a long pass, but the receiver was hit on the three and time didn't allow them another chance to score in this half. Near the close of the third stanza the Preppers started a drive from their own thirty which finished with a sweep by Jones into the end zone from the eight. His con- version went high into the air, but it was wide of the uprights, making the score 7-6. The rest of the game was played care- fully by the Reservites. The Maroon and Black started a march into scoring ground, but an interception by Tom Allchin put an end to it. Instead, the Green Jerseys start- ed to roll. Roush, Joslyn and Sullivan found their way through the tiring U, S. line for the first time. On a series of first downs without the aid of passes for fear of interception, the Green and White were on the four-yard, line when the final gun sounded. ' The Tebmen played their best game of the season against their traditional rivals. Their defense was exceptionally good, al- though this was the first time they had the U. S. type of power the offensive they found run up against formation. On the air the best until their dogged deter- mination to win Maroon defense came out on top of the in the closing minutes.

RES E 'WE REQQ,l3.Q Letters Awarded for Football and Soccer At an informal rally in the common room after dinner Tuesday, November 20, varsity letters were awarded for the football and soccer season just ended. In the absence of Soccer Coach Paul C. Roundy, Dean Mickel awarded the soccer letters. Mr. Mickel stated that the soccer team could rightly be proud of the success- ful season which it had completed. Those receiving their R's in soccer were Kennedy, who was elected captain, Pierce, Nichols, Critchfield, Russell, Marton, Garrigan, Ryan, Phillips, W. Cleminshaw, Newell, Collister, Carter, John Miller, Hartsock, and Howell, manager. Football Coach R. J. Theibert then told us that in his twenty-six years of coaching ex- perience it had been a long time since he had seen a team produce the spirit-the moral courage-which this year's Reserve team displayed-moral courage enough to vanquish an unconquered U. S. team despite our lack of size and weight. Football let- ters were awarded to Vaught, who was chosen captain, Haggerty, Roush, Rogers, Sullivan, Joslyn, Shepard, James Miller, All- chin, Howard, Dewey, Hollinger, Kramer, Nicholson, Kaylor, Hasbrouck and Melcher, manager. Member ol Mth British Army Relates Burmese Adventures At a civil assembly on Friday morning, November 16, the school was honored to have a distinguished war veteran describe several of his adventures in an entertaining talk. After being introduced by Mr. War- ing, Major Anthony Drake Digby, a member of the 14th British Army, opened his talk by relating some of the experiences which he had undergone in the European theater before his transfer to the Burma area. In the 194.3 and 1944, he said that there was' con- mountain fighting for a supply China in which the Japs would Tibet and Burma Sector during siderable line into hold caves and hills, forcing the British to attack them one by one. A serious prob- lem was found in providing the scattered hill forces with food and ammunition. Ex- citing nights were had when Tommies am- bushed Jap trails and fought at mere five- yard distances. To close, he related a heartfelt story about a fellow officer who lost his brother, sister and parents in the war and was finally killed himself. Only one member of the family remained, a third brother, who is now homeless in London. The major admonished that it's up to us to prevent another war and to preserve a peaceful world.

S. games Friday after- noon and will return the evening of the 24th. Girls attending the houseparty will ar- rive sometime Friday afternoon in time for the U. S.-Reserve swimming and wrestling meets. Special entertainment is being planned for Friday evening. The girls will be boarded Friday and Saturday evenings in Cutler Hall. Saturday afternoon will be a busy one with the U. S. basketball game and the Northeastern 'Ohio swimming tour- nament. That evening there will be an orchestra dance in Cutler Hall starting at 8:30 and ending at 12:30. Intermission will be from 10:30 until 11:05. It has not been decided yet whether or not the dance will be formal, however, it has been decided that it will be a "cut-in" dance. Sunday morning there will be a service in the chapel. The girls will leave early Sunday afternoon. More exact details will be published as they are developed by the student committees in charge of the house- party. Dr. Charles Gilkey Speaks at Vespers Last Sunday evening Reserve was privi- leged to have as its vesper speaker Dr. Charles Gilkey, Dean of the Chapel at the University of Chicago. Dr. Gilkey, who vis- ited Reserve several years ago for a similar speaking engagement, chose as the subject of his talk "The Heine Fires and Trails to Distant Lands." The speaker stated that if an audience were divided into two choruses to sing simultaneously "Keep the Home Fires Burning" and "There"s a Long, Long Trail," the effect would be onie of complete har- mony, rather than the clash of sounds which, under the circumstances, might be expected. The two would go perfectly to- gether, one supplementing the other, the Dr. Charles Gilkey speaker continued. "The trails to the far corners of the earth arc lighted by the fires at home." Dr. Gilkey emphasized the fact that we must learn to keep one eye and one hand on our home fires while we keep the other hand and eye on the trails to far-off lands. To illustrate this point he mentioned thc letters of two service mothers regarding a statement in a Chicago newspaper to the effect that Europe must rely on America for 6,000,000 tons of food during the coming winter. One questioned why her family must tighten its belt to provide food for foreign- ers. The other mother stated that because her son was still a youngster she would be willing to make any sacrifice now that would help to build a better world and so preserve peace for the generations to come. Only by adopting the sentiments of the latter writer can we hope to avoid world destruction, Dr. Gilkey concluded. Contest Ends Friday It was previously announced in an earlier issue of the RECORD that the closing date for the first cartoon- photography contest would be four days after the end of the Thanksgiv- ing vacation. This date has been changed to Friday, November 30, to assure boys ample time to prepare their material for the judges. The results of the contest will be announced in the Christmas issue of the RECORD to be published Decem- ber 5.

Reardon Congratulations are always in order at a job well done. Such the nature of the task school during the fall Congratulations the completion of we feel has been performed by the term. The RECORD is not alone in pointing out the success of the first term thus far, for many of the masters have commented on the generally improved attitude shown by the student body. The loyal spirit of the athletic teams and the generally higher aca- demic records are also reflections of the same progress. Many situations have contributed to this advancement. Perhaps the freedom from the tensions and strains of the war years has been a more suitable environment in which school spirit might flourish than those days which have immediately pre- ceded. Surely the heritage which last year's class gave to that of 1946 has been of great assistance. When the final estimate has been made however, it will be found that the chief reason for the improvement this year is to be traced to the contribution of the present senior class. They have displayed in a modest way, without fanfare of any sort, a sincere desire to increase the pres- tige of the school. They have worked hard to improve the spirit of the student body. One tangible asset that has been con- tributed this year is the improved relation- ship between masters and students and the removal of the social stigma which was placed upon the natural association of mas- ters and students outside the classrooms. This is one of the most salutary and valu- able contributions which could have been made to the general health and well being of the school. Let us feel proud that improvement has been made and that Western Reserve Acad- emy is better because of it. This should be ample reward for any who feel that they have contributed toward this advance. And so we say, "Congratulations, seniors! Congratulations, Reserve!" LUI'I.HDU'l RESERVE On Joe Reserve's -tj F First night at our il I institution of second- ' f ary education, he set X' out to the dining hall, I I attired naturally and 5 N comfortably in cover- it R I alls, sweat-shirt, tur- I tle-neck sweater, and 57774: id. beanie. when the din- , fi ,l ,, ner-bell r a n g, J o e mf'- fi ' dashed in and immedi- ately sat down at the B '12 " table presided over by "' Mr. McGill. CYou see, they had a report about Joe from his last school., For a few minutes, during which he expectantly awaited the food fhe'll learni, Joe was blissfully unaware of the dreadful silence. Neither was he aware of the gleeful grins on the faces of his ever loving and loyal colleagues. Then the axe fell. Ln a few short sentences, Joe learned about the Re- serve "Bible," and that he had violated rule 507 of said book, pertaining to proper din- ner dress. Joe was sent back to his room to change his clothes, and when he returned he found that he had received 3!10 for im- proper dress at dinner and 1110 for late- ness to dinner. Thus Joe started his collec- tion of tenths. Some people collect stamps, some coins, some antique snulf-boxes, and some autographed baseballs, but Joe ac- quired his fame as the ablest and fastest collector of tenths ever to bless our fair halls. Before coming to W. R. A. he had not thought much about collecting anything except girls' telephone numbers. Of course, at the time, he did not know of his peculiar aptitude as a collector of tenths. At the end of two weeks, with one censure and a surprisingly low merit score, Joe retired to his room one night and decided to memorize a copy of the "Bible", He'd let his work go. QA few mo1'e two's wouldn't hurt his grades anyway.J Joe's roommate kindly supplied him with the latest unabridged edition of this current best-seller, and he began to memorize. Now Joe has a poor memory, and at 2:00 a. m. the next morning, neatly tucked away in his closet with his flashlight, munching a Her- shey bar out of the box of edibles sent from home in answer to his S. O. S., Joe had only reached rule 478, when the closet door was wrenched open and the hapless J oe was con- fronted with the inevitable consequences in the person of Mr. McKinley himself. Joe received a lecture, 3!10' for staying up after 9:30, 5!10 for studying in the closet, 5!10 for concealing and possessing edibles other than fruit frule 497, which Joe had not yet memorizedj. Worst of all, Mr. McKinley confiscated the box of food. QThat was the week he gained 11 pounds.l The next morning, fortified with the rules he did get memorized, Joe started out to Seymour at 7:45, arriving 15 minutes before lst period classes. He sat down in a chair guat ton the dilecondl While all of you boys were stuffing your- selves full of Thanksgiving turkey and try- ing to forget that you were students of Western Reserve Academy, Mac the Barber and I were discussing the personal appear- ance of Joe Reserve as he left to spend the holidays at home. fWe let those who went to Sleepy Hollow take care of them- selves, as they no doubt did, because we were primarily concerned with those who went home.J They must really have shocked the people who knew them way back when. Mac remarked that the appearance of some of our number was not unlike that of a very shaggy mongrel-"Tah" for ex- ample. When he said that, Mac only touched on a part of the situation because there is every possible type of hair style represented here. There was a time when Gibson was blind until he parted his hair, and Bill Rabe, the original "head," refused to get a haircut because the barber charged more than 75 cents to do the job. To this 'Mac explained that the war workers were getting time and a half for overtime, and he wanted some of that too because it took him forty min- utes extra to travel around Rabe's head. The styles here are really tricky. Hol- linger has the "over one eye" styleg Sulli- van has the "over both eyes" styleg and "Thatch"-but then he's so wide open for cracks I just can't pick on him! To keep from showing the obvious need of a haircut, some of the boys will try anything-the Vitalis "sixty-minute work- out," peroxide, hydro-chloric acid, Vaseline Hair Tonic, vaseline, bear grease, black grease, or lubricating oil. They'll wash it, dry it, brush it, comb it, part it, braid it, or put it in. bows. In fact, they'll do just anything but cut it. By the time this edition hits the news- stands, I'll wager a lock of my golden tresses that this school has 211 perfectly groomed heads of hair, or their parents haven't seen them. Me? Oh, I have a "Handy-Dandy Little U-TRIM-IT Pocket Combination Comb and Cutter" Uohnson and Smith, 13 cents apiece! which does the job very nicely. You won't catch me near a barber shop! B. H. W. in Seymour 4, propped his feet up on the table, and was preparing to take a small nap, when, from nowhere, Wally material- ized and informed J oe that he now had 3! 10 for having his feet on the table. "But, sir, I can't think unless my feet are higher than my head." "That's another 3!10 for arguing." Thus you may see Joe walking glumly around the campus, for he has one censure, and is well on his way towards another. But his T. F. T. ftalent for tenthsj has one compensation-at night, while others are counting sheep trying to get to sleep-Joe merely counts up his tenths for the day. D. H.

The book itself will be very much like last year's. The most significant change which is to be made is that the magazine will be longer by about twelve pages and will include more pictures, the material for which is growing steadily easier to obtain with the passing of the war emergency. The editors of the book are Herb Gleason, Dick Howell, and George Vaught, assisted by Spud Milligan as managing editor and Dick Wright as photography editor. Lee Hoefinghoff has been chosen as the business manager. On the editorial staff are Jon Ayers, Tom Clarke, Dan Collister, Barney Engholm, Marshall Ernstene, Angus Fletcher, Terry Garrigan, Jim Lewis, Dick Rogers, Paul Russell, and Brad Williams.

'R' Club Dance Closes Fall Term Social Program A week ago last Saturday night on the seventeenth of November the third and last dance of the fall term took place in Cutler Hall. With the music of Otmer Gandee of Akron this "R" Club-sponsored dance was a crowning success in spite of the dampening influences of the weather, which could not affect the spirits of those attending. At 8:25 the dance was heralded by sud- den blackness in Cutler caused by a bolt of lightning from above. When the lights had been lit again after a split second, the reception line with Jim Roush, president of the "R" Club, his date, Cynthia Sykes, and Mr. and Mrs. Theibert formed, and at 8:30 the dance began. While the soft lights and sweet music were taking their effect, the rain slackened and finally stopped a little. before intermission. At 10:30 those who craved outside air went out into the now warmer night where a moon was doing its best to make its pres- ence known. Meanwhile, Coca-Cola and -x MAY 1 cur na -- on use ,lg By Photography Club sweet doughnuts were served inside to an eager group of boys and girls. At 11:05 festivities resumed, and soon thereafter the rain followed suit. The party continued with some excellent music until 12:30. After goodnights had been said by a crowd not too anxious to depart, the couples went out to find that a slow drizzle had started, but it was too late to spoil the evening. Most of the girls rc- turned home by automobiles driven by par- ents. Many thanks should be given to the "R" Club for their artful decorations. Sympathy should also be shown to those "shut-ins" who could not attend the dance for one rea- son or another. il.l.l Inter-State league Officials Meet Here for Discussion One of the many institutions which had to be disbanded during the war because of transportation difficulties was the Inter- State Preparatory League, an organization composed of University School of Cleve- land, Nichols School of Buffalo, Shadyside Academy of Pittsburgh, Cranbrook School of Detroit and Western Reserve Academy, and formed mainly for the purpose of set- ting up each year an interscholastic athletic program among these five schools. In the interests of reestablishing this league Coach R. J. Theibert has called a meeting of the athletic directors of the five schools to be held here at Reserve on the week end of Decembr 1-2. Attending the meeting will be Mr. Wendell Wilson of Cranbrook, Mr. Robert Gillespie and Mr. H. B. Ortner of Nichols, Mr. J. P. McCar- raher of University School and Mr. W. A. Palmer of Shadyside. Page 44 RESERVE RECORD' November 2.9, 1945 Tebmen Finish Successful Seusonp Four Won, Three lost 1945 Football Squad Now that all the shoulder pads have been turned in to the manager and the Green jerseys have been hung up for the last time, the Reserve eleven and the whole school can look back on an enviable football season. True, the number of victories was not impressively great from an outsider's point of view, but in each successive encoun- ter the Tebmen attained new heights in team work, determination and fight. The squad improved and fought harder in every game from the first to the U. S. game. Although this was not one of the most powerful teams to come out of Re- serve, the 1945 squad is one which will be remembered for splendid team spirit and indomitable fight. The Green and White's first fray was held on foreign soil and under lights at Kent Roosevelt. The enemy came on the field with two games behind them while the Reserve squad had still to experience the tang of action. The speedy Kent squad rolled up four touchdowns and two extra points against the green Reserve eleven, while the Pioneers succeeded only once in crossing the final chalk stripe. The Parma game, held on the school field, was a tough one to lose. The team just couldn't get going. Penalties and other had breaks hampered the Reserve offensive, and in the third quarter Parma was able to push one tally across and kick the point. Try as they might, the tired Reservites were unable to score, and the final gun found them on the short end of a 7-0 score. On October 13 the squad again played away, this time losing a heartbreaker to Rocky River. After being scored on quickly in the first quarter, the Green and White opened up a potent passing attack and matched the hard charging Rocky River team touchdown for touchdown. The win- ning margin proved to be two extra points. Although the score stood 28-2.6 at the re- port of the final gun, this fray showed the team that they could score and against even a highly rated team. This was the turning point in Reserve's football season. Four victories followed this encounter, the scores averaging twenty-five points per game for Reserve while the enemy was limited to one touchdown. The first of Reserve's string of victories was taken from Detroit Cranbrook by an impressive 217-0 score. Teb's T formation really exploded in this game, constantly fooling the Detroiters and moving so fast that Cranbrook had plenty of trouble just locating the ball. At last, the team func- tioned like a well-oiled machine, gaining on the offensive and holding successfully on defense. The following Saturday brought a weak Chagrin Falls squad to the campus, and the game quickly developed into a rout. After the first string had rolled up three touch- downs, the second team entered the fray. 'Even then the score rose three more touch- downs as the second team smashed over the opponents. The last score was the result of a beautifully executed reverse after a punt. The final scoreboard showed 41 counters for the Green and White, while the enemy had netted nothing. Not even the undefeated Oberlin High team could stop the rampaging Reservites. A highly rated team, the visitors could make no headway against Reserve's hard-charg- ing line. Green jerseys always seemed to pop up in the ball-carrier's path, and Ober- lin was constantly forced to punt. These same green jerseys marched goal-ward throughout the game to rack up twenty-five points. Of course, the game which will go down in Reserve's history was the final game of the season-University School. The Cleve- landers, sporting an undefeated record, were confident of victory, but so was a de- termined Reserve eleven, which outfought U. S. to a 7-6 victory. Fight and presence of mind were Reserve's winning qualities. After having scored from the five, halfback Denis Sullivan scooped up Nat Howard's blocked placement and ran over the goal league Football Finishes Exciting Seusonp Brady Wins This year's league football teams fin- ished with the following scores: Roger Brady's team, 145 Stu Leeb's team, 10, and Dave Nesbitt's team, 10. These figures were computed on the basis of two points for a game won, one point for a game tied, and no points for a game lost. Brady's team won six games and tied twog Nesbitt's won four and tied two, Leeb's won three and tied four. These figures tell only a small part of the story, as Brady's team, eventually the winner, lost several games and tied two before it ever won any. After these ini- tial discouragements this team began to work its way steadily into first place. Still, it was not until Brady's team's last game that the championship was secure. If Nes- bitt's team had won there would have been a tie for first place. However, Brady's team held its own in this game with a 14-6 score. The touchdowns, both made by Tom Divoll, came in very handy for the win- ner. The winning team will be given a din- ner by the school within the next few weeks. This reward is something to anti- cipate, but it cannot repay the work put into the games by even this one team. The boys on league football seldom had any spec- tators and never played a game with an outside team. Nevertheless, not only the winners but every team showed fighting spirit throughout the season. Although the league "all-stars" lost their contest with the varsity's third string, it looks as though Coach Theibert will be able to find some good material for his 1946 varsity from this year's league. I Plenty of applause is due to Mr. Pflaum, Mr. Husat, and Mr. Wallace for their help in coaching league this season. The members of Brady's' winning aggre- gation were: Ted Jones, Bob Fritz, Doug Collins, Bob Garfield, Bob Evans, Ernie Evans, Bill Katker, Dick Burt, Bill Rabe, Al Patterson, Tom Divoll, Joe Herbert, Dave Manning and Frank Gibson. line, dragging two U. S. tacklers. This extra point later proved to be the winning counter, as U. S. pushed across in the third quarter but failed to make the extra point. Especially in the last quarter Reserve dis- played its superiority by pushing U. S. all over the turf and taking the pigskin to the four-yard line before the report of the fimxl gun. The squad as a whole is to be congratu- lated for completing a hard schedule so suc- cessfully, and, if their spirit carries into the coming winter and spring sports, our athletic record this year is bound to be an excellent one.

The race was close, as the game scores indicate: Bruce Williams, 315 Spud Milligan, 29g Fred Neal, 235 Dick Wright, l6Q' and Cap Rea, 9. At this time Dick Wright's team had started a climb but were unable to get far due to a lack of time. All through the season no one could tell who would come out on top, first place changing hands four times. Cap Rea start- ed as the league leader, but after a week he was replaced by Bruce Williams, who stayed up in or near that position for almost all the rest of the season without losing a game. While Milligan was climb- ing, Rea was falling and Wright was stay- ing right where he was-in last place. Dur- ing all this turmoil Neal's team was in third palace without being able to rise or willing to fall. Milligan soon hit the top spot and held it for awhile in spite of Wil- liams' daily threat. About this time Wright's team began to get organized and started to win. In the middle of the season an all-star team was chosen to play the second string varsity. The first game was won by the varsity, 2-0. In the game at the end of the season the all-stars held the varsity to a 1-1 tie. The all-star was composed of Bruce Williams, Bill Linforth, Bob Boone, Fred Neal, George Behner, Bill Soulen, and Dave Albrecht on the line. The backfield included Spud Milligan, Bob Snyder, Bruce Rogers, Dick Wright, Fred Gerhauser, Chick Holtkamp, Alan Hyde, Bill Wallace, Phil Tarr, and Bob Terwillegar. Dave Owings and Vern Thomas were goalies. The winning team of the league will at- tend a banquet with the winning league .football team in Cleveland soon. Those on this team were: Captain Williams, Ted Boyce, Bob Boone, Jim Maples, Bob Soulen, Tom Clarke, Tom Lewis, George Williams, Hank Williams, Jim Lewis, Marshal Ern- stene, Alan Hyde, Bob Truhlar and John Schaie. Thanks to Mr. Cleminshaw, Mr. Auld, and Mr. LaBorde for their managing and coaching. Vaught Elected Captain The captain of the 1945 Pioneer football team is George Vaught. He was elected after the University game by those boys on the squad who had earned their letters. George was announced captain at the Fall Sports letter presentation meeting. Throughout the season George played a good steady game. From his position at right end he broke up the opposition's of- fensive repeatedly, and on the Green and White's offensive he was invaluable both as a blocker on the line and a pass receiver. It was his catch of Jim Roush's long pass in the U. S. game that started the march which resulted in Reserve's score. Soccer Team Ends Season Wrth Three Wins Against Three losses 1945 Soccer Squad At the beginning of this year's soccer season the team had great hopes for a suc- cessful year. Not only did we have re- turning lettermen to fill some of the most important positions, but the other prospects were experienced in the game last year and had already shown great promise. For in- stance, Reserve had an entire forward line of returning lettermen, with Mal Kennedy, later elected captain, at center, Terry Gar- rigan at left wing, Mac Pierce at right wing, and Chuck Critchfield and Rich Nich- ols to fill the insides. Here was the for- ward line-the scoring power-and as Coach Roundy repeated again and again throughout the season, "The object is to sco1'e, and score three goals." The halfback line was pretty well as- sured of' greatness from the beginning. Skip Newell, who played second string right half last year, was scheduled for Cockley's center half position. Corky Philips, who played left half skillfully with his right foot all last season, took over right half. Dan Collister, who missed his letter last year, improved until he took over the left half' position. In the last half of the season, in an attempt to add scoring power to the forward line, Corky Philips moved into right inside position. Ruedemann and Reviere's positions at fullback were filled ably by Glen Carter and John Miller. Carter, who surprised every- one with his fight last year when Ruede- mann was injured, was even more success- ful this year at saving the ball, especially in snarls in front of the goal. Hit hard during the first Oberlin game, Carter was frequently surrounded by an anxious team during practice and games while he nursed his painful knee. Miller, playing a full game throughout the season, was equally important, and his fifty-yard goal kicks and powerful saves were a strong part of each game. Hartsock as goalie was re- sponsible for saving the ball during its infrequent advances toward Reserve terri- tory. Chuck Critchfield was the only other scorer besides Captain Kennedy, and his aggressiveness around the goal was bother- some to more than one goalie. Nichols, with a powerful left kick that could either pass the ball to the right wing or shoot hard at the goal, was a sure support for Mal Kennedy. Mal was hurt early in the season and was forced out at times because of this, notably in the second U.S. game. When he was in, however, he was the first to be recognized as Reserve's threat in enemy territory. The soccer team played six games, half of which they won. Starting with a tough opponent, they traveled to Oberlin and beat the Oberlin varsity, 1-0. Not only did this fight with a strong college team seem des- tined to failure, but the larger field at Oberlin demanded terrific stamina. The team was pretty cocky when it came back that night, and the next week, when the Oberlin team returned to even the score Reserve lost on its own field, 2-1. Playing on home ground, Coach Roundy's team out- fought and outplayed U.S. on Reserve's field and beat them 2-1. Flushed with vic- tory and confident of a successful season, the team went to U.S. ground and found that they couldn't lick their short field. Overshooting and overplaying, Reserve fought hard but could not even or surpass the score against them, 1-0. Not so cocky and not so undaunted, they met Shadyside, who had traveled from Pittsburgh, where they had won only one game, and beat their unskilled team. 3-1. Meanwhile they had learned that a return game was scheduled with U.S., and although it was to be on the little field in Cleveland, the team had hopes of clinching their sup1'emacy over the U. S. cleatmen. But while the football team prepared for their successful fight, the soc- cer team messed up the day and again lost, 1-0. Page 46 1 RE SERVE RE CO RD November 29, 1945 Whites Lead at End of Fall Season, I24-74 Junior Soccer: Whites 5, Greens 2 The Junior Whites beat the Junior Greens in intramural soccer, 5-2, on Wed- nesday afternoon. In the first quarter a full-spirited Green team headed by Angus Fletcher scored within five minutes. The Greens gained control of the ball and carried it down- toward the White goal. Using their wings to great advantage, they brought the ball toward the goal and' Fletcher scored, mak- ing it 1-0. Immediately following the Whites' kick-off Jerry Austen tallied again for the Greens. Early in the second quarter Bob Fuzy kicked the ball and was credited with a goal because it bounced from a Green fullback into the Green goal. The next tallies came when John Nich- olson scored two goals in succession to register the score at 3-2 at the half. ' The Whites' spirit picked up and after an uneventful third quarter Bill Sharp's corner kick, in the fourth quarter, tallied, putting the Whites ahead of the Greens, 4-2. Led by Fletcher and Austen, the Greens got in scoring territory, but failed in their attempts to score. After a free kick by Austen, because of Winslow's foul for hands, the Whites once more controlled the ball. Bruce Rogers' free kick went through to make the score 5-2 in favor of the Whites. Junior Football: Whites l8,. Greens O On Thursday, November 15, a superior White football eleven trounced a weaker Green outfit, 18-0, in junior football's part of the Green and White competition. Sparked by brilliant all around play' and a very good backfield, the Whites scored their first touchdown in the second period when Bill Sharp circled his own end for the score. The first try for point failed, and, although later the Greens were fre- quently penalized for being offside, the White team could not capitalize on its sec- ond chance. In the third period the White aggregation hit pay-dirt again when Harvey Graves skirted his end for the score. The try for point failed. The final points came in the last stanza, when Sharp went through tackle again from the six. The point attempt was wide and it remained 18-0 till the end. The White team consisted of: Betz, Meyer, Bronfen, Swanston, Simmon, B. Rogers, Fuzy, Wehr, Winslow, Graves, and Sharp. The Green team members were: Siddal, Jones, Hobart, Mather, Marshall, Taylor, Wood, Timmis, Jae, Wingard and Read. Intermediate Football: Greens IZ, Whites O On Wednesday afternoon the Intermedi- ate Greens rolled over the Whites to gain a 12-0 victory. The first score came mid-way through the second period when Mosher caught a pass in the fiat and ran the re- maining fifteen yards to pay dirt. The ex- tra point failed. The two teams fought hard for the rest of the second quarter and all of the third period. In the fourth the Green team scored again, this time from the five-yard line, with Frank Austen carry- ing the ball through the line. A second attempted conversion failed. For the rest of the game it was a downhill march. The Green team was: F. Austen, C. and F. Cory, R. Evans, Gebhardt, Gerhauser, Herwig, Mosher, Ryan, Truhlar, and Weid- enthal. The Whites were: W.

The first score came early in the game, when Allchin put one into the net from short range. The Greens fought hard to even up the tally, but the Whites held gamely. Toward the end of the first half a drive spearheaded by the speed of Rogers brought the ball down the field, and it was booted into the net by Rea. Again, in the second half, the Greens threatened, but again the Whites held. In the middle of this half the White goalie was mobbed, after picking up a close shot. However, he held on to the ball and got it away. The team for the Whites was: Rea, R. Rogers, Bruce Williams, Rabe, Milligan, McCombe, Neal, Olson, Stansbury, and Holt- kamp. The subs were Hagedorn, Nobil, Behner, Roberts, Herwig, and H. Oliver. For the 'Greens it was: Lindsay, Buchman, Austen, Garver, Gibans, FL Smith, Boone, Gerhauser, H. Williams, Wallace, and Breck- inridge. The subs were Snyder, Gordon, and Rench. Senior Football: Greens'7, Whites O Friday afternoon an unfavored Green team surprised all of us here at Reserve by handing the Senior White team a 7-0 defeat. The White team had a greater ma- jority of varsity players, some of whom were personages like P. M. Jones and Mark Robinson, who greatly contributed to a strong White line. For the whole of the first quarter and the greater part of the second it was most- ly an exchange of punts with the exception of an intercepted pass by Terry Garrigan of the Greens, who fought his way from his own 35-yard line to the White's 40. Then the Whites staged a passing attack which took them to the Green's 30. A White took the ball from center, faded back for a pass, cocked his arm and let the ball fly right into the arms of Paul Wingard, the Green's center, who raced up the field for a Green touchdown. This score was called back to the White's 15-yard line for a clip- ping penalty which occurred on the goal- line. Then another penalty took the ball away from the Greens when a blocker took out a backer-up on a pass. The score was then 0-Oi, and thus it remained till the beginning of the third quarter. At this point the Greens went into the lead due to the quick thinking and running ability of Terry Garrigan, who picked up the ball after a punt in the midst of three would-be tacklers and raced down the sidelines for the score before anyone knew what was happening. He also ran the ball over for the extra point, which put the Greens in the lead, 7-0. The rest of the game resem- bled that which had happened during the first quarter. Senior Soccer: Whites 4, Greens I Thursday proved to be an important day for the Whites, for they not only beat the Greens in junior football, but also in senior soccer, 4-1. Late in the first quarter the Whites scored their first goal on a kick by Kaylor, who shot the ball into the outstretched arms of "Smiley" Simons, who apparently mis- judged it. From this time on until the third quarter the ball spent most of the time being booted around in the middle of the field. I Three minutes after the third quarter had started, Art Doyle sent a swift kick which Dave Owings could not reach. Al- most immediately afterwards the Whites retaliated, and Paul Shepard shot one which was good, making the score 2-1. In the fourth and last quarter the Whites really went to town and in seven minutes they had scored two more goals again, one by Shepard and also one by Hollinger.

How different our outlook from that of a year ago! Last year we could see but dimly what lay ahead. Victory, we were con- .gf 'S , 'fl . M. N 'G vineed, would come, but at what cost in human life only the future could reveal. The Battle of Belgium seemed to delay V-E Day indefinitely, and the bloody days of Okinawa were still to come. Then came those weeks of spring and with them ll victory in Europe. But still to all appearances the Pacific war stretched drearily ahead. Grimly the nation settled down, resigned to the struggle. In late summer if two single weeks brought us with a suddenness that we had dared not expect the climax of four years of struggle-peace. ' if How deeply all of us were stirred by that day in August! Let us not judge if America by the frenzied crowds in the big cities. Perhaps that demonstration was to conceal real feelings. Perhaps we were self-conscious, timid about reveal- ing our deepest selves. But I believe I speak for many when I say that 7:00 p. 771. if on that August 14th was one of the most solemn moments in our nation's expe- rience. The war was over! All for which we had fought and sacrificed was 'llc won. What our 37 gold star boys had laid down their lives for had been achieved. It was a moment when one felt more like bowing in prayer and thanksgiving Tj than rushing out to celebrate. Now our boys would come home-our neighbor's two boys, the two boys next door to him, and the same story repeated all over TNQ the world. A lump came to our throats. Thoughts there are, indeed, that often Tx, lie too deep for tears. And now the homeward tide is in full flow. Daily we greet returning Reserve t men, make up for lost time, listen to their experiences, share their dreams for 'li' the future. To us who were their age at the last war all these events have a 'L familiar ring. We remember the crowded transports, the flags, the bands, the parades-and yet for our generation the dream proved empty. Again today in it, these weeks since V-J Day there are signs that though the fighting has ceased, 11, the victory is not yet won. "Peace on earth, good will toward men." What a victory to win! Is America great enough to realize that goal? Sometimes one QV, wonders. Are we like the man in the Bible who found no room in which to stow his harvest? "This will I do," said the man: "I will pull down my barns and build greater, wnd there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods." "Thou .QV fool," God said unto him-America, like the man in the parable, faces the future .Qi the richest of nations.- For a second time, and probably the last, we have the 111 chance to use our leadership and our abundance to establish a lasting peace. Will we use our opportunity more wisely and more unselfiishly than before? -fl, Probably the answer to this question lies some years in the future. It will ,tj come from the hearts and minds of boys now in our schools and colleges. We .Q-H feel we know what the returning Reservites urge upon us. We are sure what the voices of the gold-star chorus say. Boys of Reserve, you have seen history ' + .li made this year. You will ne-ver forget the stirring days through which you have kg just lived and the emotions you have shared. What of the future? Are our 'L J' schools building a broad base of understanding and tolerance, of unselfishness 'L gf' and world friendship? Are young men interested solely in the material pros- A N-'E perity of America, or have they caught from their returning brothers a vision , 455 of a world at peace-a vision of something that is bigger than they? Will this rl' dream command their deepest loyalty and challenge them to be satisfied with nothing less than the best education for the responsibility that must be theirs 5 T- in this new day? t K if It is a serious and yet a deeply happy Christmas that we face this year.

McCarraher of University School, Mr. Robert Gillespie of Nichols and Mr. Theibert of Reserve, all of whom are vet- eran coaches at their respective schools. There are two new additions to this group of coaches, Wendell S. Wilson of Cran- brook, who was a coach at the University of Illinois, and Howard B. Ortner of Nich- ols, a former coach at Cornell University. The intent of the meeting was to feel out how the schools felt about reviving the League. All were in favor of it. Friendships formed through the League carried over into later life, and the travel- ing it was felt was good experience. It was also settled that no post-graduate un- der scholarship could participate in the Interstate League games. The rules and by-laws of the old League were carefully studied and discussed. In spite of every effort to get the League started once more, high traveling expenses will still delay a full schedule. Schedules for the next year or two will not be complete. There are possibilities that next year there will be complete sched- ules for the Academy in football, basketball and baseball. In the other sports, however, there will be no championship schedule for at least two years. Next year's soccer schedule will include games with U. S., Nichols and Shadyside. In basketball we shall play all the League schools if possible. As yet there is no wrestling setup, and baseball will not get completely under way until 1947. - In the present basketball season Reserve will play Nichols in Buffalo on February 2 and Cranbrook here on March 1. This spring the League tennis schedule will be condensed into a tournament on May 25 at fcontlnued on Page 49, Column 23 Dr. Hayden's Condition Perhaps the best news item which the RECORD can carry in this Christ- 4' mas issue is to report to its readers that the Headmaster's condition is very perceptibly improved. Dr. Hay- den continues to gain psysically and his mind is clearer now than at any time during his illness. Music and many other of his accustomed satis- factions are finding a greater place in his convalescence.

Rea1'd0n , , , nilillerrp Clibrustmas' It is Christmas again-the season of joy and peace and the most significant feast in the Christian calendar. For many members of the human family this will be the first Christmas of peace in almost a decade, for Americans the first major holiday in four years undisturbed by the turmoil of' war. For the blessings of peace we should be most deeply grateful. For many this season will be a time of immeasurable joy. Many long absent will return this year to be with families and loved ones and to know at last the comfort and security of home. To those who will not gather at the festive board, there is the knowledge that hostilities have ceased and the time of departure from foreign shores will not long be postponed. In this season of rejoicing we cannot but remember those who have made the su- preme sacrifice and more especially in this season those whom they have left to mourn their loss. For them it cannot be a season of joy, but with their sorrow should come the knowledge and justifiable pride that the sacrifice of those near and dear to them has made possible the time of joy and peace for others. "Greater love hath no man than this. a man lay down his life for his friends." If the real secret of Christmas is to be found in giving, those who have surrendered someone near and dear to them have come nearest to the essential lesson which Christ- mas has for each of us. For only by their sac'riflce of those they loved can humanity be assured of its upward march. Thus, while it may be a sad Christmas for many, they may take pride in the fact that lib- erty, justice and brotherhood have tri- umphed because of the sadness that is their lot. So as we go home this vacation, let us do so with feelings of gratitude for the peace that has come and the resolve that this shall be the happiest of all Christ- mases. Therefore we say, "Merry Christ- mas! A Merry Christmas in every sense of the word."

I rush up the stairs, tears coming to my eyes. "Ma! Oh Ma!" I cry. "You were expecting me, weren't you?" "Yes, son," says Ma, kindness making her eyes soft, "and I've got another surprise for you." I followed her up the ladder into the attic, and there-"Oh, Ma! You shouldn't have." My own little Boy Scout cot for me to sleep on while I was home. Soon I approached Pa about transporta- tion. I haven't seen Daisy Lou in a coon's age, and I knew she'd wanta see me. Pa, however, was a little stubborn, and when he refused me the car, I had to become firm with him. "Frankly, Pa, I'm gettin' sick and tired of usin' the tractor whenever I come home. Here I' am, a freshman at Re- serve-20, goin' on 21-and you treat me like a child. Winter's comin' on, and for all the heat of the motor, Daisy Lou's going to get mighty cold sittin' on the radiator cap, PA!" I pleaded, "think of your courtin' days with Ma!" "Druther not," he replied, and the matter was settled. Vacation time proved to be college-plan- ning time, so Ma insisted that Pa remain up until eight one night to discuss the mat- ter. After supper that night, she engaged him in discussion. "Well, what'cha got?" he asked when his thoughts were collected. "There's Amherst, Yale, Harvard, Prince- ton-" I started out. ' "Wait a minute," Pa shouted. "Let's get away from those western colleges and go east." He tapped me on the knee. "We want you to have the best, son." "All right, how about Southern Cal?" "That's more like it," he cried, "Pd rather have you in a warmer climate." So the matter was settled, and all I have to do now is save the money out of my freshman al- lowance. . Now I'm back at Reserve, and when I think of the home-cooked food, the lazy, frivolous life of home, I wonder why I ever left it. I don't know what Ma and Pa will do when I don't come home for Christmas- they depend on me so. D. C. Heldinkeomve Friday, December 'T-Chapel, 8:05. Mr. Sa'adeh speaks.

Consequently, I'd like to submit my list of improvements which I am sure would have been overlooked if I had not brought them to your attention, and now will merely have to be ignored. Certainly the list should be headed by an improvement in the bell system which might include the replacement of the bells with a set of chimes. The results would be revolutionaryg not only would the raucous sound of the bells be averted, thus allowing more Udowny time," but those who did wake up would think they were in heaven before they became fully aware of the awful reality. ' Did it ever occur to you that the ceilings of the second and third floors of Cutler Hall were going to waste? Purely in the in- terest of physical education why not put poles on the ceiling from one end of the halls to the other, forming a sort of ceiling ladder on which the boys could swing back and forth? I am sure this would go over big on the third floor. With long, hard Hudson winters promised for many years to come, the school should equip each of its members with a pair of snowshoes. Then for the yearly Monsoon season in the spring a gondola should be given to each dorm to serve as transporta- tion from Seymour to Cutler Halls. As transportation for longer distances a su- per highway should be constructed which would run down College Street. With a main-traveled highway right at their door- step some of the boys might find it still easier to do their hitchhiking. I have probably left out many improve- ments which should be included, but I am sure that with the improvements I have previously mentioned this will be quite a school! B. H. W.

In baseball games have been lim- ited to seven innings in order that train departures might be kept. This meeting has completed the ground- work upon which future meetings and schedules may be prepared. Plans for House Party As soon as the announcement of the win- ter term house party was made, the seniors began making arrangements. With the re- lease of the winter athletic schedule, defi- nite plans are now taking shape. Fun and thrills for the girls attending will be pro- vided by the U, S. wrestling and swimming meets on Friday, February 22, and on the following day the U. S. basketball game and the Northeastern Ohio swimming tourna- ment. Entertainment for Friday night and Saturday morning is still to be planned, and the jobs of working out entertainment, refreshments, housing, and decorations have been assigned to committees of sen- iors. With Hoefiinghoff' in charge, a program of events will be worked out by Critchfield, Vaught, Jim Miller, Kramer, and Leeb. Gar- rigan and Collister will make sure of mu- sic, and the meals and refreshments will be handled by Gleason, Clarke, and Russell. The housing problems of Cutler Hall will be in the hands of Dewey, Ayers, and Roush, while Philips and Shepard will arrange for flowers.

At first the purpose of Christmas Seals was to provide money for the building of children's hospitals in Denmark. In 1908 the idea rose in the United States to be one of the most influ- ential factors in the controlling of serious diseases. In later years the money collected from the sale of Christmas Seals has been used entirely to finance laboratory research, provide hospitalization and care for persons stricken with tuberculosis and to combat the plague generally. Only by our contributions can we make it possible for sanitaria and their trained staffs to continue their work against this disease. Some day our contributions may be justified by the fact that some boy or girl, attached by this disease, may have a really Merry Christmas. Page 50 RESERVE RECORD December 6, 1945 All Weights Show Promise In First Mat Practice Judging from the array of new and old material now practicing on the wrestling mat, Reserve should have a successful sea- son. To replace the boys on last year's team who are no longer here, there are about fifteen newcomers, or half of the squad. It is difiicult to predict the ability of these until the season progresses. In the 103-pound class Coach Ellis is de- pending on new talent. With about five boys out for this weight he should be able to make a good choice. At 112 pounds, Larry Wehr, a veteran of last year's squad, will most probably take over. At 120 pounds, Leonard Gordon, who also wrestled last year, is the leader in his weight. Ex- perience is plentiful at the 127-pound weight class, with Bill Rabe and Harvey Graves, who are finding plenty of compe- tition from Dave Sheldon and Bruce Rogers. At the present time it seems most prob- able that Buddy Ober will draw the assign- ment at the '133-pound spot, while Jack Renner, another veteran, will probably bat- tle for a place with Chuck Critchfield in the next weight class. Wink Haggerty, who placed in last year's Greater Cleveland tour- nament, will easily take his weight at 145 pounds. At 155 one of Reserve's star tour- nament champions, Jimmy Roush, will again continue to get a. place in all of the Green and White meets. It seems that Hobey Cleminshaw will fill the gap left at 165 ,pounds by Jim Howard, a senior last year and another champion.

Swimming Squad Trains Under Couch Ricker Two weeks ago the quiet water of the Reserve pool was churned by the first swim- ming workout of the season. Limbering-up exercises and a little swimming served as sufficient exercise to make shoulders and leg muscles painfully stiff. Official practice began the following Monday under the di- rection of Coach Larry Ricker. Mr. Ricker, for the benefit of the new boys, is not a stranger this year as he coached Reserve teams two and three years ago. A hard trainer, "Rick" put the team through a fairly strenuous drill on Monday and kept increasing the work throughout the week. The total laps for each competitor every day averaged about forty or fifty and many of the squad soon found out how much in need of condition they were. ' Several veterans of last year's squad will again compete for the Green and White. This year Dave Nesbitt, Bud Ryan, Rich Nichols, and Dick Rogers compose the returning free-stylers, while Glenn Carter will take over one of the back stroke spots for another year. In addition to these old teamsters several new members have prom- ise, and under Coach Ricker's instruction will doubtless develop into valuable mem- bers of the team. Long practices and careful coaching are rapidly getting the team into shape for the first meet against Akron East this Satur- day. promise, though he is getting a good fight from Bill Laub, a newcomer to the squad. lil..- ' R' M E N Another "R" man in his second year of varsity soccer competition is Chuck Critch- the forward line last year, and this season has been a strong fac- tor in ther suc- cess of the Green and White boot- ers. In the Shady- side game he sparked the team to its third vic- tory by scoring two of the three tallies. In the winter and spring seasons of the school last year Chuck made the varsity grade in his chosen sports and is counted on heavily to fill an important roll in them this year. In the winter he is a competitor in both basketball and swimming, in the latter sport as a diver and freestyle performer. In the coming spring season Chuck is the only returning catcher Coach Theibert has for his nine. Chuck will be behind the plate receiving all the moundmen can th1'ow at him when the leaves appear again. field. Chuck played on Chuck Crtichfield Basketball, Season Opens at Uberlin The '45-'46 basketball season gets under way for the Pioneer five Saturday, Decem- ber 8, against Oberlin High at Oberlin. Last year the Red and White won over the Reserve team, 31-22, but lost to the Green and White reserves, 35-2.9. This year, with only two lettermen re- turning from last year's unsuccessful var- sity, the odds look no better in favor of Reserve. The squad has worked out for three weeks in preparation for the game. Coach Wal- lace cut the squad Friday, November 30, sending most of the sophomores down to lightweight basketball. He did this in the interest of future years' teams, since the fundamentals are taught on the lower level. With these essentials the boys will be able to bring better basketball to Reserve's floor. Sixteen boys make up the varsity squad now, and it is likely that there will be no other cut in the list. They are: Austen, Allchin, Divoll, Joslyn, Hollinger, Vaught, Nicholson, Sullivan, Howard, Lindsey, Lin- forth, Hank Williams, Brad Williams, Doyle, Mosher, Graham, and Cleminshaw. All these boys have had lightweight experi- ence, and' thus are only polishing the tech- niques they have already learned. Without any authority behind it, a probable start- ing line-up in the Oberlin game will be: Divoll and Hollinger at forwards, Joslyn at centerg and Nicholson and Sullivan at guards in the varsity game. In the pre- liminary game it will most likely be: Brad Williams and Cleminshaw at forwardsg Howard at center, and Doyle and Mosher filling the guard positions. Since the fundamentals are behind these boys and because of the small number on the squad, a much better showing is ex- pected of the Pioneers. Their only handicap is height, which can be overcome by a fighting spirit and a well played defense. A strong system on the offensive will be the answer to any defects that they may have in that field.

Prizes will be presented by the publishers. More than 300' private schools in 38 states and the District of Columbia will share this year in the intramural competitions which have developed from successful experiments nine years ago in many American prepara- tory schools. In each school a prize book or a twelve- inch world globe will be awarded to the student in every participating academic grade who makes the highest score on a comprehensive factual test covering events in the last four months of 1945. The test, prepared especially by Professors Alvin C. Eurich of Stanford University and Elmo C. Wilson of the University of Minnesota, is not a test on TIME itself. So the contest is fair to all news-readers of varying ages. In some schools student participation will be general, in others restricted to certain forms, and in some promoted and handled by an undergraduate organization. In a great many schools faculty members will also take part. Each winner will be given the privilege of choosing either the globe prize or naming the book desired. Reserve is entering the contest on a voluntary basis and details will be published in later issues of the RECORD. --l..l,. Greater Part ol Campaign Organization Completed Those who saw the two-page spread showing pictures of the Academy in the Rotogravure Section of the Cleveland Plain Dealer on Sunday, December 2, realize that the Million Dollar Campaign is moving for- ward with increasing momentum. We are happy to say that the results have been very gratifying, and that the subscriptions are coming in most satisfactorily. The school is particularly proud of the reaction shown by the Reserve men in the service and by the recent graduates, as well as by the rest of the alumni, the families and friends of the school. Next week, a detailed report of the results of the campaign will be pub- lished in the RECORD. Since the campaign is to continue throughout this year and probably next, and since the greater part of the organizational work has been completed, the headquarters have been moved from Room 7 in Seymour Hall to smaller quarters in the Headmas- ter's office, which is temporarily vacant due to Dr. Hayden's illness. Badly needed class- room space has thus been released for im- mediate use. Glen King Dischargedp Returns to Reserve Home after one and a half years over- seas, Glen King returned to his theory classes at the beginning of the winter term of Western Reserve Academy. The year Mr. King entered the United States Army, three and a half y e a r s ' a g o , would ' have been his tenth year as an instructor at Reserve. Prior to his induction Mr. King taught theory class- es and lived in C a r r o l l CutlerHouse. After two years' train- ing in th e United States, Mr. King, then a technical sergeant, went to Europe to join the 25th regulating station, which was in charge of supplies immediately behind the front line. The 25th regulating station was set up im- mediately after the invasion of Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944. From Normandy the front Glen King it moved across France behind lines, across Belgium and finally into Ger- many. Mr. King was with this unit during the major part of the battle for Germany and during the Battle of the Bulge was within fifteen minutes of being captured by Ger- man forces. He has recently been recom- mended for the bronze star medal for bravery beyond the call of duty by extin- guishing a fire which had started in an am- munition dump.

At the present time Mr. King is living at Mr. Clewe1l's home until it will be possible for him to find a room. -llll., Gregory Taylor Enters Reserve'sSophomoreClass Gregory B. Taylor, who arrived immedi- ately after vacation, has entered the sopho- more class as a resident Reservite. After attending the Shaker Heights schools dur- ing all of his previous education, Greg is repeating the second semester of the tenth grade here. Having been on the Scroll staff at his old school, he has attained an excellent scholastic record there and will endeavor to keep it here. Peddie Srlrool Headmaster Speaks in Tuesday Chapel Reserve was privileged Tuesday to have as its guest chapel speaker Dr. W. E. Saun- ders, D.D., Headmaster of Peddie School, Hightstown, New Jersey. Dr. Saunders showed a thorough understanding of boys in his inspiring talk, which was enthusiasti- cally received by the student body. In his address Dr. Saunders discussed the impulses springing from within ourselves, which we either let direct our actions or which we de- liberately reject. He stated that not one of us enjoys being told by his superiors what he must do. Moreover, real democracy does not exist when we must always act according to the exact wills of those set over us. However, if there is to come out of the chaos of war a world based upon the principles of Chris- tianity and democracy, in which every man has equal opportunities with his fellows, each one of us must be guided by the voice within that tells us what we must do-that tells us to choose the hard right against the easy wrong. Christmas Service On December 9, 1945, the first sign of Christmas appeared when the annual Christmas vesper service took place led by four students, each a representative of his class. These boys included Doug Hasbrouck, Bud Ryan, Jack Tanner, and Ed Winslow. For the most part the rest of the service cconsisted of music, Christmas carols and special vocal numbers by the Glee Club. This was the first Christmas service in many years which Dr. Hayden has been un- able to attend, and his presence was greatly missed. Vesper Speaker Next Sunday Reserve will welcome a return visit to the campus by Dr. Jerome Davis, author and correspond- ent, who will speak to the school at the 7:00 Vesper services. Dr. Davis has just returned to this country after eighteen months abroad serving as a correspondent for the 1 Canadian and American press. He is an expert on Russia, having visited N the country eleven times and being the first American newspaperman to in- terview Stalin. For twelve years of his life Dr. Davis lived in Japan. He last visited that country in 1935, at which time he had the privilege of conferring with the highest governmental lead- ers. Prior to his European trip, Dr. Davis was the Director of the prisoner-of- war work in Canada for the Wor1d's Alliance of the Y. M. C. A.

Reardon IQI45-A Year of Destiny To all appearances New Year's Eve 1945 was celebrated with all the enthusi- asm and revelry of prewar years. There were dances, all-night parties, confetti and champagne. The customary Happy New Years echoed through mansion and tene- ment alike. The poor man was hopeful that the coming year would bring him a job Sa that he might feed and clothe his familyg the rich man wished for another million. Perhaps we were just "letting off steam", glad to be rid of oppressive wartime wor- ries. Postmen made their rounds as usual, but their knock no longer struck terror into the hearts of countless mothers. The mail- ,man brought Christmas cards this year, not greetings from the Secretary of War, who expressed this deep sympathy in the loss of another son, brother, or father. 1945 was a year of victoryg yet, it was a year we are glad to leave behind Twelve months ago no one could say how much longer the tenacious Nazis would re- sist. Progress was slow and our well-fed, well-equipped enemies were stubbornly un- willing to surrender even a small patch of ground without a pitched battle. When we were sure the Germans were on their knees, they countered at the Battle of the Bulge, dealing our fighting forces heavy blows and slackening morale on the homefront. But June was not far off. While German lead- ers in desperation sought suicide, Allied forces raced forward to keep an appoint- ment in Berlin. Still, 'there was Japan and the long- neglected Asiatic war, a fight which our ally, China, had waged unsuccessfully for more than a decade. Island-jumping was 9. slow process. And the Nipponese, more fanatic than their Western comrades, fought to the death in defense of each outpost, no matter how insignificant. But remember Okinawa? It was there that our luck be- gan to change. For not long after Gene1'al MacArthur, corn-cob 'pipe clenched in his mouth, walked ashore on a deserted Philip- pine shoal, thus fulfilling his vow, "I shall return." What About Cur Future? Now is the time when seniors begin to plan for next year. Last year's graduates of Western Reserve Academy knew what the future held in store for them. The United States was then at war and the country still needed men to iight. But this year the world is at peace, and yet graduating boys do not know what to prepare themselves for--the armed services or the furthering of their education. The U. S. Senate has been asked and must begin voting procedures before May on a new Selective Service Bill. At the present time, over a quarter of a million young American boys are wondering what is going to happen to them next year. Are they going to be drafted into the army or will they be permitted to continue theilg education? These questions are not troubling only a quarter of a million American boys, but they are also worrying a like number of parents. Is a boy who desires to continue his education to be drafted into the army for a year or even more at a time when his desires for furthering his education are at their peak? Are boys going to be allowed to enroll in a college and along with their college courses receive military training? All these questions are facing the youth of America today. , Western Reserve Academy has been willing to do its share in this warg and it is willing to do more for the good and the welfare of the country. Thirty-six boys from this school laid down their lives in World War II and over eight hun- dred graduates have helped swell the file of the armed service. This graduating class, the class of '46, is willing to serve in whatever way our country deems it necessary. But is it fair to these boys to keep them in the dark as to what their future holds in store for them? The college years are the most crucial years in any boy's life. Therefore, why would it not be possible for the United States Senate to take immediate and definite action upon a subject which affects a large portion of the families of the nation-the passing, the rejecting, or the modificaton of the present Selective Service Bill? A We have no say in the decision of our future, but it is only fair that we know what it is going to be! S.

I've been very busy recently with my "Va1'ga" calendar computing various dates which may cheer you boys up. Did you know that there are only: 64 days remaining in this term? 133 days remaining in the school year? 296 shopping days till Christmas? 22 days till Groundhog Day? 65 days till St. Patrick's Day, Sullivan? 239 days till we go back to school in Sep- tember? When I arrived here after a very frivo- lous fthat's Word Wealthian for "Boy, you should have seen me on New Year's evelj vacation, the first thing I saw was Lima's version of Tweedledum and Tweedledee- Ernie and Little Mac, unloading a shipment of Lima pennants. Evidently Allchin and "Cueball" Walker took my haircut column too seriously. In soft, golden tones Admiral Burgeson, that slim, trim, happy-go-lucky champion of the freshman class, informed me that he had been appointed "Com-in-chi" of the Hockey Pond fleet. He was fairly bursting with pride. In the interest of starting a new craze, would anybody like to purchase a second- hand "Hum-a-zoo" cheap? B. H. W.

She seemed to feel that going steady for eight months didn't warrant a gift, and the fact is-well, she didn't get me a thing. Really I didn't expect anything. She could've given me any little trinket-like her class pin, for in- stance. When she got the wrapping off and opened the box, out crawled a tiny painted turtle. On the shell on top was carved "Helio" in green, and on his stomach-you got it right, Jack-in red, "Trope," in true Reserve style. One could barely discern "Souvenir of Cleveland Exposition, 1938" underneath the carved letters. 'fIt's alive!" Heliotrope screamed.

"Ummm, this smells good," I said, stir- ring it with my thumb. "What is it?" "Turtle soup." Turtle, that is. D. C.

E. N. Hemperly. This is the fourth that has been contributed by Mr. Hemperly in the last three years. The income from these bonds is to be applied to the scholarship fund each year. All of the four bonds are from the Conrad Corporation in Massillon. Mr. Hemperly, a graduate of the class of '89, now lives in Massillon, Ohio, where he is an attorney-at-law. A It might be interesting to note that the class of 1889 was made up of 17 students, three of whom were women.

Barring unforeseen difficulties, the paper will be distributed every Thursday evening instead of Friday morning. For fouriweeks prior to the Christmas holiday the Greyhound Bus Company, which handles the transportation of editorial ma- terial, was on strike.

Page 54 RESERVE RECORD January 10, 1946 Tankers Edged Out by Akron East Squad, 35-3l On Saturday, December 8, the Reserve swimming team received its first experience in a contest with Akron East here in the school tank. As was the case with the other athletic teams, tiu had depleted the Ricker squad, and several key strokers were ab- sent. However, the Green and White put up a strong battle to the end which found the weakened Reserve group four :points behind their adversaries, holding up the short end of a 35-31 final score. The clear surface of the pool was first broken with the 50-yard free style event, which was started four times before the ref- eree's faulty starting pistol functioned prop- erly. On almost every succeeding event this gun failed to work the first time, and a few races finally required a whistle. Reserve took a first and second in this event, Dick Nichols touching up first, immediately fol- lowed by his teammate, Herb Gleason. East then came back to tie the score when it cap- tured first and second honors in the 100-yard breast stroke. 'The Akronites also captured the first two places in the 200'-yard free style event. The fourth race, the 100-yard back stroke, was won in fast time by Glenn Carter of Reserve while freshman Krause took third. The 100-yard free style, which proved to be the key event of the afternoon, was won by East's Listerman, who was followed very closely by Dave Nesbitt. This event was followed by the 75-yard individual medley, in which first honors were won by Reserve's Carter for his second success of the day. At this point in the meet either team could have won, although East led in points. How- ever, the medley relay trio from Akron out- distanced the home team's entries, and the contest was sewed up for East. Neverthe- less the four Reservites, Krause, Brecken- ridge, Gleason, and Nesbitt, composing the 300'-yard free style relay team, fought to the end by winning their event and seven points to boost the score to 31. Although Reserve lost this meet, the mer- men still have seven engagements ahead of them, and hope, with the team at full strength, to come out on top. 50-YARD FREE STYLE4Nicliols QRJ, wong Gleason tll.l, 2: Slater fE.l, 3.

Malmen Fall at Hands of Strong Collinwood Team The Green and White wrestling team seemed to be back in an old rut as they dropped their first meet of the season on December 8, falling at the hands of a strong Collinwood aggregation by a score of 18-25. For the last three years the Pioneer grap- piers have been defeated in their opener by a close margin and then have gone on to have a good season. However, aside from the handicap of only a relatively short pe- riod of practice, the team was not at its full strength, with Bud Ober and Dick Kay- lor absent due to the flu epidemic. But as it turned out Kaylor's absence made ,little difference to the score. The Collinwood team got off to a good start when their man pinned Jim Maples, a newcomer, at the 103-pound spot. For this weight Coach Ellis has had to draw entirely from inexperienced material, but practice is sure to make the weight a fairly strong one as the season progresses. Reserve fell be- hind still more when Jerry Austen, a vet- eran of last year, was edged out by a strong opponent. At the end of the next match at 120' pounds, when Leonard Gordon was pinned by an experienced foe, Collinwood seemed to be quite safely in the lead. But Harvey Graves didn't take long to get Re- serve out of the hole as he pinned his man in the second period of his match. Then Collinwood again took over at both the 133 and 138-pound classes when Dave Sheldon and Jack Renner were pinned by their op- ponents, who were the most experienced members of the opposing team. Renner's man was the captain of the Collinwood team. By this time it was too late for Re- serve to make a comeback even though we lost none of the last four matches. Wink Haggerty, a veteran of long standing, pinned his man in perhaps the best match of the day. His addition to the score was seconded by Bob Dewey, substituting for Dick Kaylor at 155 pounds and gaining a decision. Incidentally, Bob was not out for wrestling at the time and had scarcely a day to get in shape for the meet. Jimmy Roush added another win to his long string of straight victories by decisioning his oppon- ent. Finally Don Kramer wrestled his man Pioneer Five Trounced By Oberlin High, 67-30 In the first game of the season the Green and White basketball quintet fell under the onslaught of a tall, sharp-shooting Oberlin five, 67-30. Without the services of George Vaught, Dave Nicholson, and Denis Sulli- van, first-string regulars, the Pioneers were unable to hold the Blue and Red power- house. Ln the first quarter it was nip and tuck between the system that Howard and Co. threw at their opposition and the height advantage that the Oberlin team had over Reserve. The Pioneers went out ahead and stayed there with a two-point margin throughout the first quarter. Shortly after the beginning of the second period, Wally sent in the remnants of his first squad. At this point it seemed that the Oberlin team started its spurt, which ended with the whistle. By the end of the first half their tally jumped sixteen points while the Reservites were scoreless. They had complete control under both the back- boards, and they put that advantage to good use. In the second half it was the same story, except that the Oberlin five seemed to find their shooting eyes, and they sank field goals from every spot on their small court. In spite of substitutions and a shifting of positions, the Blue and Red exceeded the Reserve baskets two or three to one. The prevalence of induenza handicapped Coach Wallace from putting his best team on the court. Nevertheless, the game dis- closed that the Green and White quintet will have to overcome its lack of height. Wally intends to shift the team around after vacation in order to find a combination that will equal a tall team because of its fight under the baskets. Reserve l Oberlin C G. F. TJ li. F. T.

RESP 'WE REQQBQ Committee Reports Sl00,000 in First Tobulutionp Campaign Gifts Arrive From Every Port of Globe Common Inquiries Listed Answered by Committee A great many questions have come to the school both from within and without its walls regarding the Anniversary Me- morial Campaign. The RECORD appends here seven of those most frequently asked with answers which members of the Cam- paign Committee have offered. 1. Question: Is it the purpose of the campaign to enlarge the enrollment of the school? Answer: No. The present administra- tion and Board of Trustees have definitely committed themselves to limiting the board- ing department to a maximum of 200 stu- dents. Its present limit is approximately 180 plus 30 to 40 day students. 2. Question: Are small gifts welcome? Answer: By all means. We want all the alumni and their families to participate in this undertaking regardless of how small an amount they feel that they can con- tribute. 3. Question: Why is it necessary to raise money when the school is so highly endowed? Answer: The income of the endowment is limited by the terms of the grant to pro- viding low tuition and generous scholarship assistance. Under no circumstances may the capital of the fund be used for any purpose. For this reason the school is en- abled to charge a 31000 tuition fee when it actually costs S1500 for each student. 4. Question: Is a vastly increased em- phasis on science planned? Answer: No. The aim is the best pos- sible scicncc teaching properly balanced with the humanities. 5. Question: Are these .buildings really necessary? Answer: By all means. The physical plant of the school has not been changed in 27 years except for the construction of the Infirmary, the Swimming Pool and a small addition to the Chapel. During the same time the enrollment of the school has practically doubled. Many classes, includ- ing most of the science courses, have been forced to occupy basement space in Sey- mour Hall which 15 years ago was used for shops, paint and finishing rooms and for storage. In the gymnasium guest locker rooms and locker space for our own boys and some exercising equipment are now placed in the basement, which once was used for storage of lumber and supplies. The main gym floor now accommodates twice as many boys as it was designed for. . . ft --'- V. . as is 'i,,5,.-5xg3s- ,M av , ef' 3 .1 X .

One hundred thousand dollars, represented by ap- proximately 265 pledges, have been received. One of the most heartening factors to those who have worked so hard on the campaign is the general response from all areas. Not only have gifts come from all over the United States but also from every part of the globe. There has also been a large voluntary response from recent graduates now in college or recently discharged from the armed forces. Pledges have come in the form of govern- ment bonds, money orders and even Philip- pine currency from those men of limited means scattered far and near. According to the early pians of the cam- paign directors, the task of raising the quotas was to begin about the middle of October. However, unforeseen circum- stances such as strikesn printing shortages and above all Dr. Hayden's illness, delayed 6. Question: Is it to be assumed from the pictures in MAKE NO LITTLE PLANS that the Academy is to become more of a manual arts school? Answer: No. The plan is to provide more adequate space and facilities to in- sure better and more general leisure-time training in the arts and crafts. Many boys ,are now denied training in hobby activities because of lack of space. . 7. Question: Are the new buildings to be placed as represented in the architect's plan in the major booklet? Answer: Not necessarily. The plans as published represented only the architect's suggestions and were strictly tentative. Final decisions are to be subject to thor- ,ough discussion by the Trustees and Fac- ulty of the school. ' the start and have continued to slow down the progress since. It was to have been Dr. Hayden's assignment to make the con- tacts with the potentially large donors all over the country. It has been impossible to contact many of these people yet as a result of the Headmaster's illness. Never- theless his responsibility has been shoul- dered for the most part by the trustees and other good friends of the school who are interested in seeing the drive succeed. At the moment there are a good many people who are potentially large givers to the campaign who before making their con- tributions are waiting to see the response shown by the school family as a whole. It is therefore important that everyone send in his contribution as soon as possible so that these potential benefactors may be favorably influenced by the general support of the school family. Another very fine way to show interest in the school is to provide a bequest in one's will. The committee knows of several friends who, in planning their legacies, have remembered the school handsomely. Any- one who knows of substantial amounts which might be available to help the school realize its ultimate goal would be doing the Academy a service by. supplying this information. But the best way of all to help is to send in one's own contribution as soon as pos- icontlnued on Pao 56, Column 33 Page 56 RESERVE RECORD P January 17, 1946 THE RESERVE RECORD Publlsbed every Thursday during the school year by the students of Western Reserve Academy, Hudson, Ohio Joel B.

Reardon Lessons From Last Times Along about this time of year there comes the sad realization to each and every senior that he has done some things for the last time. For example, for seniors the last football or soccer game is over, we have returned from our last Christmas vacation as students of Reserve. As the year. advances other memories will be added to this list. It's not a particularly comforting thought. The return of alumni to the campus bring this thought ever closer to us. Many of them tell us how a long way from home in the recent past they have wished for a glance at the "lawn's Wide sweep" or the sound of the chapel bell. We're all dreading the "last times"- "C. B." the last match for Reserve's mat- meng "Allch" the pop fly that ends the last ball game. And in our senior year they come thick and fast-the last time we fill out a date card, The last time we line up for mail, the last time. we pack. That's why the senior prom is so much fun for the juniors and not so much fun for the sen- iors-that's a last time, too. I guess it's not missing the school so much that bothers the alumni. It's the reali- zation that they didn't appreciate the place while they were here. If this be so, we .should do our best now to implant the school in our minds. Then there'll be no regrets when we're gone. There won't be any doubts in our mind about our scholastic ability, if-now-we know we're doing our bestg nor will we think too much about the way we played our last game, if, while playing it, We know we're fighting our hardest. Then the realization that the football and wres- ling and baseball are over, and the fun is over, will come slowly and perhaps with a little more understanding, instead of hitting us "alumni" so hard after we leave that we start writing letters to the faculty in an attempt to rejoin our past and make sure Reserve knows we miss her. Now is the time to start pitching in and giving Sacrificial Contributions One of the most gratifying elements in the hard work attendant on the campaign is the knowledge that those who have served have been in reality carrying' out the will of many whose desire has been to perpetu- ate the spirit of Reserve, to memorialize her many sons who gave their lives in World War II and to increase her effectiveness for future generations. Abundant evidence of this truth arrives in every mail. From the recently discharged members of the armed forces, .many of whom are returning to the discipline of future study, come words such as these, "I would like to add my bit to what seems like a worthwhile program. The attitudes fostered at Re- serve are not onlyvimportant to the indi- vidual but also to society, and with the aid of the proposed buildings many more gradu- ating classes will leave Reserve as well equipped as ours." The following is a quotation from a let- ter received from a parent of a boy now in school, "I am enthusiastic about the place of W. R. A. in the field of secondary education, and I contribute with a sincere hope that I may make many additional gifts." It is relatively easy for these to see in the presentfor in the immediate past their obligation to the things of the spirit. But we are assured that the love for Reserve and thel things for which she stands do not grow dim with the passing of the years. Such extracts as these from the letter of a widowed mother attest how deep and sin- cere such feeling is, "I am enclosing my check. I am sorry not to give more but my oldest daughter's husband was killed in the service and I have her and her four children with me and my obligations are very heavy." Finally, we record a paragraph from a letter received from a parent whose son was killed in the war: "We are pleased to send this contribution as a memorial to our son. Would that we could make it many times more. Please use it as you see fit. We shall never cease to be thankful for his years at Reserve. They were among the happiest of his life, and we feel that they were the most profitable. It was a great satisfaction to us that he was so well prepared to carry on his training at one of the best universities in the country, even though he was not permitted to finish there." Do not sacrifices of this nature spur each of us to an examination of our devotion? Have we done all that we can and desire to do? Upon our replies depends the suc- cess of our undertaking. everything we have. If you've been a "fighter" now for almost four years, keep it up! If you haven't, start now! We've got a whole lifetime to think back on "how the class of '46 did it." I-leldin Resetve Friday, January 18-Chapel, 8:05. Mr. Parker speaks. Swimming meet with Cleve- land Heights, there, 3:45.

O Campaign . . fCon!inued From Page 55, Column 37 sible. In order to succeed in this under- taking, it is necessary that the school re- ceive the full support of all its family and friends. No matter how small every contribution counts! The Chairman of the Campaign is Mr. Lewis B. Williams, Chairman of the Board of the National City Bank of Cleveland. Mr. William D. Shilts, Secretary of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, is the Vice-Chairman and Executive Director. Dean Raymond A. Mickel is the Campaign Manager, and Mr. Gillette Welles is the Field Manager. Sixteen areas have been organized for solicitation, headed by local chairmen. The Cleveland area is supervised by Mr. Pearce F. Boyerg Akron by Mr. Don C. Mellg Hud- son by Mr. Gillette C. Wellesg Oberlin by Mr. C. H. Hamilton. Mr. Frank I. Hard- ing Jr. heads the Gates Mills-Chagrin Falls sectorg Mr. J. B. Gillespie supervises the Columbus area, and Mr. Francis E. Henry Jr. has charge of the Alliance ter- ritory. Other Ohio districts include: Can- ton, Mr. Paul Perkins and Mrs. L. E. Leav- enworthg Salem-Youngstown, Mr. E. S. Dawson, Lima, Mr. Henry W. L. Kidder: Mansfield, Mr. H. B. Souleng Toledo, Mr. G. R. Bennetg Euclid-Willoughby, Judge N. J. Brewer. The New York area is in the hands of Mr. Blaine E. Rawdon, Detroit is cared for by Mr. Craig L. Richey, Pittsburg by Mr. James Milholland. Mr. David Baron is in charge in St.-Louis. ' f Of these areas Gates Mills-Chagrin Falls ranks first in percentage of goal reached, the Lima district is second and the Hudson territory third. Since the close of school last year the Campaign Ofiice has been one of the busiest spots on the campus. All the details have been worked out here in conference. Much credit is due Mr. Robert Wilson, Dean Mickel, Mr. Welles, Mr. Piercy, and the sec- retary, Mrs. Marsden, for their loyalty and service. Mr. Mickel has fulfilled many en- gagements in addition to his other duties, having spoken before the Rotary Clubs of Hudson and Kent in the last fortnight. Keynoting his address, Dr. Davis stated cl,v,,,,,d January 17, 1946 RESERVE RECORD Page 57 Russian Situation Explained by Dr. Davis Last Sunday Reserve was privileged to have as its Vespers speaker Dr. Jerome Davis, noted author and correspondent. Dr. Davis has just returned to this country after eighteen months abroad serving as a correspondent for the Canadian and Ameri- can press. Dr. Davis spoke about our ally Russia, a country with which he is quite familiar. The speaker has traveled the length and breadth of that nation during the past thirty years and was the first American newspaperman to interview Stalin. that if we are to best understand Russia and the Russian method of government, we must make an effort to realize the similarity between that nation and our own. To begin with, American and Russian pioneers both sought the same things, freedom and secur- ity. Our forefathers had a much easier course toward the attainment of these goals. They had a new land. They were united in language and purpose. Communication between the colonies could be accomplished with a reasonable degree of ease. The Soviets, however, who began the same struggle many years later, were confronted with many difiiculties. The people were impoverished. Vast numbers were illiter- ate, for the Czar's regime had not fostered industrial or social improvement. But above all, there was no unity--for Russia comprises one-sixth of the total land area of the world, and its people belong to many tribes, each with its own language. How, then, were they to accomplish what we had done successfully so many years before? They found an answer-Nationalization. Strong central government, national super- vision of utilities, widespread organization of the populace-that was how they did it. The system had many benefits. It brought Dr. Jerome Davis a much higher standard of living, full em- ployment and education for 'the many. Profits from utilities, instead of being paid to a few stockholders, paid community taxes and made possible a college educa- tion free of cost for every promising Rus- sian student. Democracy ?-perhaps not, admitted Dr. Davis. But many aspects of American life are far from democratic. Basically, our country is far ahead of Russia in freedom for the individual, freedom of speech and .of the press. On the other hand, the Soviets have made much greater progress than we toward racial tolerance and public security. Knowing these facts it should be easier for us to cooperate with our eastern ally and understand her viewpoint on interna- tional issues, Dr. Davis concluded. Winter Social Program As a result of recent meetings of the faculty and student social committees, the following decisions have been reached on questions which have been asked by many different boys: 1. The date for the Fourth Council Dance has been changed from February 2 to Feb- ruary 9 in order that the members of the basketball squad may be able to attend the dance. 2. By vote of the two upper classes all boys who are eligible to attend the House Party are expected to remain on the cam- pus whether they have invited a girl or not. 3. All boys not eligible to attend the House Party are expected to leave their rooms not later than 2:30 p. m. on Friday afternoon, February 22. They are expected to leave the campus not later than 6 p. m. on Friday, February 22 Kimmediately after the U. S. wrestling and swimming meetsj. Those who wish, may return for the U. S. basketball game on Saturday afternoon. All boys on week ends are expected to re- turn in time for study hall Sunday night, February 24. This double week end is over Announced and above those allowed by the handbook regulations. It is hoped that boys living near Hudson will invite to their homes for this week end those boys who live at such a distance that they can not go home. 4. The Junior Prom will be a formal pro- gram dance. Those boys who do not have the proper evening clothes should get in touch with Bob Dewey at once. 5. A fiat charge of 56.00 will be levied on each boy who brings a guest to the House Party. This charge will cover the girl's meals and her corsage for the Junior Prom. In order to simplify the collection procedure, boys will be asked to turn in their checks for 86.00 before they will be issued a date card for the House Party. 6. The dead line for date cards for the House Party will be the end of the seventh period Wednesday, February 6. Further information about the House Party will be released as the various stu- dent committees work out the many details that will be involved in order to insure the complete success of the party. Basketball Team Misses First Council Dance In spite of the basketball team's absence this Saturday, the first council dance of the term promises to be a success. Hoping for clear skies to reveal the large moon, the dates are scheduled to arrive at 7:30 and will be greeted by Mr. and Mrs. Parker, and Terry Garrigan with his date. At 9:30 in- termission will begin and refreshments will be served. At eleven the record dance will end. The following couples will attend the dance: Betsy Augustus, Kramer Dorothy Barney, Sheldon Sandy Bostwlck, J.

Octet Formedg Prepares For Early Engagements About two weeks before Christmas va- cation the octet was formed from the up- perclassmen of the Glee Club. Those chosen included Dick Rogers and Dick Buchman as first tenors, Spud Milligan and Dave Nicholson as second tenors, Bill Laub and Dan Collister singing baritone, and Dick Howell and Paul Russell carrying the bass parts. Due to the epidemic of flu just before Christmas five of the eight boys were incapacitated, and therefore the octet was unable to begin practice. However, all have now recovered, and work has been started for the coming season. The first engage- ment outside of the school will be on Feb- ruary 26, when the group will sing for the Eastern Star. The first school appearance will probably be at the second council dance on February 9. Page 58 RESERVE RECORD January 17, 1946 Wrestlers lose Second Match fo Edison, 28-I8 Sustaining their second loss of the sea- son, the Reserve wrestlers fell last Satur- day before a surprisingly powerful Thomas Edison High .team by a score of 28-12. The Green and White team fell quickly behind when Dave Albrecht, wrestling his first match this year, was pinned by a much more experienced 103-pound man. Edison lengthened their lead when their grapplers decisioned Larry Wehr and pinned Leon- ard Gordon in the next two weights. Then Reserve began to roll, and the Green and White grapplers chalked up 13 points in the next three matches. First, at 133 pounds, Buddy Ober scored a fall over his opponent in 1:34 minutes in the first pe- riod. Jack Renner followed him trying to equal his score, but found that he could do -no more than decision his foe. Wink Hag- gerty turned out another fine performance as he too pinned his man in the first stanza. But Edison again profited by the inex- perience of Coach Ellis' team as their 155- pound wrestler pinned Dick Kaylor in the second period. Roush added three more points to Reserve's score when he decisioned a strong opponent. Nevertheless, Edison crushed all Reservc's hopes for a win with a pin over Phil Hartsock, another new- comer. At this point the crowd was given an added attraction in the form of an ex- hibition match between the Edison unlim- ited man and Pete Gulick, both of whom weighed 225 pounds. Though apparently evenly matched, Pete's foe, using a rather professional style, took Pete off his feet and pinned him in 4:02. ozonxnzox.-2014ignzuguxozoznxozl11.

The first team, Hollinger, Vaught, Austen, Sullivan and Nicholson, were working together for the first time in a game and, although their ball-handling was good, the shooting was definitely not on a winning level. Parma used its height to good advantage under both baskets, and took almost every rebound. Their defense was extremely tight, and almost all the Re- serve plays were bottled up before they got near the basket. Reserve's defense found it hard to guard Parma's tall pivot man, who swished the strings many times with hook shots. However, Parma's high-point man was their smallest player, whose ac- curate iiring from all angles accounted for many of Parma's winning baskets. The first half seemed very evenly matched, Reserve trailed, 11-10, as the half buzzer, sounded, but all of its ten points had been made in the first quarter. The Green and White were also held scoreless in the third period while Parma continu- ally added points to their rising score. Not until the fourth quarter did Reserve sink any field goals, and these were from far out. Parma coasted to the final gun, freezing the ball or setting up a seemingly impreg- nable defense. Coach Wallace sent in his reserve squad twice, H. Williams, W. Clem- inshaw, Howard, Mosher and Doyle, but these five were unable to score successfully. On the whole, the team's fight was good but the shooting inaccurate and poorly fol- lowed. The second team game, which was taken by the Reserve squad, 27-13, was the bright spot of the evening, this sophomore and junior squad displaying excellent shooting ability. The winning aggregation of F. Cory, C. Cory, Daily, Graham and P. M. Jones took an early lead and held it throughout the fray. The two Cory broth- ers, Frank and Charlie, and Dick Daily netted high totals while guards Jones and Graham played good games defensively. Tonkers Downed by Akron Champs, 34-32 Buchtel High, defending city champion of Akron, edged out the Reserve tankers by the score of 34 to 32 on Friday, Janu- ary 11. From the first event, the fifty-yard free- style, the meet was either team's. Not until the visitors came in far ahead on the medley relay was the outcome decided in favor of the visitors. Fred Heifner, Buchtel's top freestyler, barely touched out Dave Nesbitt in the fifty. Dick Rogers took the third place, so the score was five to four, Buchtel having a narrow one-point margin. -In the second event a first and second by Harry Hun- sicker and Stu Leeb, respectively, put the Reservites out in front by six points. However, in the 200-yard freestyle the tables were reversed, the Black and White swimmers taking a first and second in this event to go ahead by one point once again. Jim Taylor came from behind to take a first over Glen Carter in the 100- yard backstoke and advance his team to a two-point lead. Then Bud Ryan cut it back down one point with a first in the H100-yard freestyle, and the quality of the relay teams became uppermost in the minds of the Reservites. Coach Ricker put Glenn Carter in the individual medley against Buchtel's Palmer, specialist in this race. Glenn placed second in the race and was the only Reserve man to score. Thus, with the chance of victory fading, the respon- sibility was shifted wholly to the shoulders of the relay teams. Against an undefeated combination, the boys chosen by Coach Ricker swam a good, game race. But the Buchtel man pulled away in the Hnal stretch to give his team the points needed to win the meet. In the 200-yard freestyle relay, a combination of Krause, Rogers, Nichols, and Nesbitt won the race for Re- serve by a split second. Dave Nesbitt -started with a handicap of ten feet and won over the boy who had touched him out in the fifty-yard race. This was the team's second loss in as many starts this season. Considering that they had only one week to get into shape, they did well against the undefeated Buch- tel team. 50-YARD FREESTYLE--Won by Heffner KBM Nes- bitt KAI, 2ndg Rogers KAL 3rd.

First, there was a dinner in the Com- mon Room, after which the initiation took place. Those who were taken in were the new lettermen from the fall sports. They included Bob Dewey, Dave Hollinger, Dick Kaylor, Don Kramer, Jack Melcher, Jim Miller, Mark Robinson, and Paul Shepard from football and Bill Cleminshaw, Dan Collister, Phil Hartsock, Dick Howell, John Miller, and Paul Russell from soccer. Jim Roush, president of the "R" Club, presided at the meeting, with Mr. Ellis as faculty advisor in the place of Mr. Theibert, who could not be present at the dinner. After the conclusion of the dinner and meeting, many of the members went to the downtown movie, admission for which was paid by the "R" Club. letter from Wester Souburg We publish herewith a letter received just as the Record was going to press, giv- ing us the first details regarding the re- ceipt of clothing by the residents of Wester Souburg. Dear Mrs. Harrison Kitzmiller: In answer to your letter of December 24, 1 make haste to write you. Till now I received two wooden boxes, one barrel, and 20 cartons. It is a wealth of clothing that they contain. We can make many people of Wester Souburg happy with them. You will be so kind as to express my heart- filled thanks to the senders, our foreign friends. In this cover you will find en- closed a circular which I had printed. We add this circular to the clothes so that each receiver knows the name of the donor. I am sure that our inhabitants will be glad to write to Hudson people who have generously and with so much care col- lected the clothes. It is a pity that you did not receive my letter of December 24. I sent that let- ter by post. This is going by air mail, and I hope you will receive it much sooner. By post I sent you an ancient picture of Wester Souburg 117431 and some other photos which may please you. It is not impossible that your academy bell hung in the old tower of our church. Sincerely yours, Stemerding. P. S. Just now the wooden box from Mrs. Haldy and also six cartons arrived. Sunday Vespers Conducted By the Rev. Raymond Burns The Rev. Raymond C. Burns, pastor of the First Congregational Church of Hud- son, spoke at vespers, Sunday, January 20, on the topic, "What Does a Man Owe to God?" We owe to God first of all "an o r d i n a ry amount of c o u r tesy," Mr. Burns began. Even if a person h a s never f e l t t h e presence of God person- ally, His presence is felt in so many places by so many people that we ought to respect Him if only for that fact alone. If, on the other hand, a person does not believe that God is present anywhere, he has no reason to be discourteous to Him at any time. Yet we owe something more to God than just common courtesy. We ought to make an honest attempt to know Him because He has done and is doing so many marvel- ous things for others-because He is so perfect and could show us such an ideal way of life. Rev. Raymond C. Burns Three .loin Annual Staff as Work Steudily Progresses Now that the winter term has begun, 'all arrangements for the June publication of the ANNUAL are being completed. During last week 0'Neil's Studio in Akron took the picture of each senior. Next week will be marked by the taking of numerous group pictures. Editorial material is now coming in steadily, and it is hoped that, if present enthusiasm continues and printing diflicul- ties grow no more serious than they are at present, the ANNUAL will be out by Commencement or soon thereafter. The plan this year is to lengthen the magazine by approximately 12 pages, thus including more sports material and inci- dental photographs depicting school life throughout the year. Since the last article concerning the ANNUAL appeared, sev- eral additions have been made to the staff. Fred Neal and Bob Dewey have been added to the list of those writing editorial mate- rial, and Bob Rodman has been chosen as cartoonist. Lincoln Ellsworth Plans African Expedition in I947 Although Mr. Lincoln Ellsworth an- nounced eight years ago at the conclusion of his last trip to the North Pole that he had forsaken Antarctic exploration, he re- vealed on January 10 before departing on the Swedish liner Gripsohlm that he planned to undertake another expedition in 1947. Mr. Ellsworth, a lieutenant commander in the United States Naval Reserve, sailed with Mrs. Ellsworth for Kenya Colony, East Africa, where he plans a geological ex- ploration for some six months to a year in the volcanic areas of the Rift Valley. Mrs. Ellsworth will participate in the work as a photographer and writer. Referring to the polar venture, Mr. Ells- worth disclosed that he intends to make the expedition with only a pilot accom- panying him. Musters lose Three to Prefectsp North Bows' to C. C. Last Sunday morning a tired group of prefects dragged themselves from their beds, after a Saturday evening of basket- ball or dancing, to meet the faculty on the gym floor for an exciting game of volley- ball. The prefects, however, turned out to be not so worn out since they took three games straight. Those comprising the fac- ulty squad were: Messrs. Jones, Waring, Sa'adeh, Ellis, Cleminshaw, Parker, Habel, LaBorde and Jack Theibert. After the faculty-prefect game the boys from C. C. came on the floor to meet the wide awake North Hall boys. The result of this encounter was tragic. Carroll Cut- ler boys took North in two of the three games played. North Hall, however, ral- lied in the third and last game, practically shutting out the over-confident C. C. The ten making up the winning team were: Vaught, Hollinger, Critchield, Howell, Laub, Shepard, Ober, Brady, Rodman and Russell. N The boys from North were: Hoefinghoff, Lewis, Jim and J. V. Miller, Collins, Gay- field, Nesbitt, Simons, Hagedorn, Wil- liams and Milligan. Vesper Speaker At the seven o'clock vesper service this Sunday Reserve will have as its guest speaker the Rev. Harry Nicholson, pastor of the West Congregational Church in Akron. Dr. Nicholson, who is a graduate of Dennison University and has served in the Akron parish since 1941, is the father of Dave, president of the Stu- , dent Council.

"Nothing is too hard for us to do!" And usually that is exactly what is done, nothing. A great many of us are exceptionally good suggestors when it comes to new and dif- ferent things to do. But when it comes right down to the actual carrying out of these suggestions we all give in. When something is first proposed, the customary procedure is to appoint numer- ous committees with a great many mem- bers on each until finally it is necessary to appoint a committee on committees. This custom has been carried to such an ex- tent at Reserve that practically every senior in the school belongs to one or more committees, none of which ever gets much accomplished. This isn't the committees' fault nor is it the fault of the individual boys. Our schedule is so tight that it is almost impossible for a group of boys, say a group of six, to get together at one time and come to any definite conclusions. Nearly forty-five minutes an evening are, however, set aside for such meetings when boys are free to gather to discuss problems and things in general. It is at this time when committees are supposed to hold their meetings. This is not always possible, though, since some members of committees have other "conflicts" at this time or, as it is true in other cases, this time in the evening is the only free time a boy has. What may the solution to this problem be? Should committees be abolished and the responsibilities shouldered by individu- als? Single boys should certainly not have to carry such responsibilities nor should one boy be forced to do more than his share in planning for an enterprise. Then what is the solution to this problem? The only time and perhaps the best time a group of boys can meet together is at meal time. Committees could plan to gather at meal time and in this way ac- complish all the necessary business they LUI'IilUU'i .- RESERVE As a result of my '.'- F sending the last few vi' Records to both Helio- ' trope and Daisy Lou, " i I have heard nothing 1 I from either of them V ' s i n c e.

This week, 77141 i ,Q therefore, I would like L g f to run a little inter- , Am . : view between the Rec- tm WW . ord reporter and Frank A- rg , " ' fi" Freshman. " R. R. I understand you have just com- pleted a week of basic training, otherwise known as waiting at the council table. Did you read the article on the council this week in the Record, especially the part about freshmen waiters? F. F. Yessir. Yessir, I did. They were very kind, I thought, to mention us. I didn't realize what opportunity was afford- ed us by the council. R. R. Never mind the "sir," I'm only a social-senior. But now that you've read this article, you become aware that you get a slightly' better understanding of how the council is rung that in the future you will know whom to vote forg and most im- portant of all, that the average freshman has no interest whatsoever in the Record staff. F. F. Yessir. I mean, yes, I do. R. R. Fine. Now, just out of curiosity, would you mind enumerating the benefits which you acquire through this work? F. F. Not at all. Knowledge is our largest gain. For instance, I find that the longest boarding-arm reach doesn't belong to "Pitchfork" Critchfield, but to HC. B." Roush, with "Rev" Nicholson a close sec- ondg that if you want to scrogg "Density" Daily out of the extra dessert, everyone uses the secret formula. Furthermore, once one gets through listening to "Champ" Garrigan and "Goldy" Kramer discuss the day's problems, there isn't a football or basketball score unknown to the freshman waiter. One day last week we had weiners, and I missed the whole last quarter of the Buchtel-South game. R. R. Part of every freshman's educa- tion, I see. Well, do you get a glimpse of parliamentary form in action? F. F. Only partially. It seems that just have at hand. Senior Annual groups could meet to work out problems with which they are faced. This system would also permit masters to meet with boys at which time both are free. As for the seating of these groups, that could be solved by setting aside every lunch time a table at which commit- tees could gather. This may not be the only way of solving the problem. But certainly it would pro- vide a time when every boy could be free from all appointments, so that valuable time would not have to be taken from study periods for committee meetings. just ton the CR:-:condl Among the cheaper literature circulating throughout this noble institution of learn- ing can be found many strange advertise- ments. No doubt you have all seen some of them and been tempted to send for a big bargain in which the manufacturer was such aa benefactor that, even though he stood to lose thousands of dollars, he just had to give everybody the opportunity of a lifetime. Having associated with the sole possessor of a "Will You Kiss Me in the am Dark, Baby?" necktie, 1 feel that I qualified to give you the inside story of one of the nation's biggest rackets. tls reform showing?D mY The most important thing to remember is that you can't win by clipping the spe- cial "No Risk Coupon." Why should you spend 843.95 to become "Commando Tough" when Sheldon Wrench can do the job for half the price with his weights and-give you choice quotes from Shakespeare on the side-for no extra charge? Why should you pay your father's good money for twenty-eight books to make you popular when you can buy at any of the nation's leading stores - including Michaeledes' Five and Dime Store-a "Whistle-Kazuo" which will give the same results? How is it possible for any manufacturer to practically give away such marvelous items as an animal which acts as a baro- meter by the colors it turns for only 53.74 plus handling and mailing charges? The answer is he can't, without the handling and mailing charges, for they are what support the manufacturer and all his rela- tives. The total cost for this amazing animal would be in the vicinity of 36.59. When you finally pay the price and get the animal, he just dies because you can't feed him mulberry leaves and mushrooms, which are the only things his sensitive stomach can digest. If you had to change colors, what would you eat? All this should give you material whereby you can resist any temptation to clip that coupon. Say, do I sound like the Voice of Experience? B. H. W. before they vote on something crucial, they send me out for more potatoes, and when I come back, everything has been settled. Speed and efliciency is the keynote. The discussion of a double date will start at one end of the table, and by the time it reaches my end, five couples are going to 'Myers' Lake in the same car. R. R. And do you have a clearer insight as to whom you'd like to vote for next time? F. F. I certainly do! At the end of the week, each freshman, wishes for an immediate election, although he has made his choices by- process of elimination. R. R. Well, friend, you seem intelligent, upright, eager for new knowledge-no doubt with great promise of leadership. Therefore I extend to you the invitation of the entire Record staff to sit at their table next Thursday. If you were good enough for the Council, you're good enough for us. January 24,1946 RESERVE RECORD Page 61 The Council Reports Slow Music ond Cold Moon Begin Winter Season Beginning with this issue of the REC- ORD, the School Council is planning to print all suggestions offered to them by the student body, together with the Council's opinion and action concerning these sug- gestions. This column will not appear at regular intervals but only whenever enough new suggestions have come in to warrant it. All students with ideas for improving any phase of school life are asked to put them in the Council suggestion box, which has been placed on the lower floor of Sey- mour Hall beside Wally's box for checks. The purpose of installing this box and of publishing all the ideas received is to get the student body to take a more active in- terest in the affairs which concern them. 1. "Is there any chance of moving the Council dance scheduled for February 2 to the ninth? As it now stands, the basket- ball team will miss both Council dances this term." The Council, through the faculty social committee, has arranged to change the date of the dance. 2. "Why can't there be senior coffee on Sunday night as on other nights?" The Council believes that to have senior coffee after the main meal on Sunday, dinner, is more appropriate than to have it at night, and further believes that to have it twice, the only possible alternative, is unnecces- sary. The suggestion was therefore denied. 3. "There has been too much hazing from the seniors. Can it be stopped?" The en- tire Council, underclassmen as well as seniors, agreed that this was a false state- ment, that if anything, less bossiness than usual has been displayed by this year's sen- ior class. The request was therefore de- nied. 4. "In past years the RECORD staff has been refused permission to have freshman waiters. This year, for the first time, no underclassmen are on the staff, so that each week an upperclassman must wait. Why aren't we allowed to have a freshman waiter as the Council is?" The Council feels that in waiting on the Council each freshman gets a slightly better understand- ing of how it is run and because of this is in a better position later to vote on who should be elected to it. On the other hand, the average freshman is not the least interested in specific activity groups, such as the RECORD, and would gain nothing' by waiting on the RECORD table. The Council therefore voted that the RECORD may have freshman waiters, but must se- lect them only from the group of students taking journalism as an activity, 5. t'Why can't the old privileges of al- lowing upperclassmen to exchange two Sat- urday leaves for one week-end permit be returned?" The Council approved this proposal, but did not have the power to pass it. They therefore passed the sug- gestion, with their approval of it, on to the Executive Committee, asking that special consideration be given to the basketball team, since there are but two Saturday nights this term when there is neither a game nor a school dance. Action has not yet been taken by the Executive Committee. N.. Last Saturday night the first of three Council dances took place in Cutler Hall. The music for this occasion was organized by Stu Leeb, who was ably assisted by Chick Holtcamp. The night showed little promise in the way of good weather as the boys went out to meet their dates. The reception line formed at about 7:30, and some twenty minutes later after the girls had been introduced to Terry Garrigan and his date and Mr. and Mrs. Parker, the dance began. For a little more than an hour and a half dancing, interrupted only occasionally by the flash of a camera, seemed to be the important subject of the evening, and an atmosphere of contentment pervaded the Common Room. At nine-thirty the announce- ment came of intermission, and the stags retired to the refreshment table while most of the couples prepared to go out and face the elements, which were still a bit snappy and cold. When 10:00 rang out over the campus, the rosy-cheeked couples began to wander in looking for nourishment to squelch the pangs of hunger increased by the prome- nade. Meanwhile, inside, boogie-Woogie was being played for those who desired it. As the Common Room began filling, Bob Gar- field gave his renditions of a few favorites before he wasbeaten out by the phono- graph under the able direction of Stu, who .seemed to be having a little difficulty in getting the dance started again. However, the fact that there was but one hour re- maining for dancing seemed to give the party a sudden boost, and things went smoothly until 10:45, when the dancing was forced to stop in order that "Goodbyes" might be said so that the girls might catch their trains.

It was Re- serve's meet all the way, the Green and White splashers capturing firsts in all but one event. After having lost two meets by very narrow margins, the mermen really came through in fine shape. The first event held in the Heights 20- yard pool was the 40-yard freestyle, which was taken by Dave Nesbitt for Reserve, while two Heights men touched second and third. In the next event Reserve's sopho- more breaststroker, Harry Hunsicker, led for the whole five laps to take a first in the 100-yard breaststroke event. Stu Leeb, small but rugged, touched a second or two later than his teammate to capture sec- ond honors. Glenn Carter then undisputedly took the 100-yard backstroke event in the very fast time of 1:07. Alan Krause touched sec- ond to give Reserve eight points in this race. Heights took its only win in the next event, the 100-yard freestyle. Bud Ryan, having swum ten fast laps to win the 200 a few minutes before, was unable to better a fresh adversary and took a second for Reserve. Dick Rogers, performing for the first time this year from the diving board, won the diving event while Heights kept second and third. To top off the whole afternoon, the rampaging Reservites won both relays. The 180-yard medley relay team fKrause, Holtkamp and Nesbitti won, Dave Nesbitt making up fully a body length in his three laps to outtouch the Heights anchor man. The 160-yard freestyle relay was close all the way, but the Breckenridge, Nichols, Rogers and Carter quartet finished first to total the points at 46 for Reserve, 20 for Heights. 40-YARD FREESTYLE-Won by Nesbitt llilg Bone fHi, 2: Crilly KID, 3.

The Reservites held the highly rated Trojans on even terms throughout the first half, but fell behind when Nieto and Van- Horn, forward and center respectively, started to swish the nets. The Green and White jumped to an early lead when George Vaught hit the mark with three rapid field goals. With this lead the team coasted through the first quarter to hold a six to five margin at its end. In the second period it was the goals of Hollinger and Nicholson that kept up the Pioneer scoring, while the team's close zone defense kept the Timkenites' scoring at a minimum. The five jumped out ahead again after the intermission on three two-pointers by Dave Hollinger down the middle. With this outburst the Blue and Gold tightened up with a man-to-man defense and started to hit their range. From this point the Re- servites were unable to break into the open again, while Timken piled up the points. In the reserve game the Green and White went down by one point. With the Cory brother combination broken up, the sopho- mores were beaten by too much, height. In spite of the efforts of Howard and com- pany to overcome the slight lead, the pre- liminary was lost.

Reserve Overpowered by Rhodes Mutmen, 27-ll Even though everyone on the Green and White ten showed plenty of fight and pep all the way, the Reserve wrestling team lost to a very powerful Rhodes team by a score of 27-11. In the first match of the day Dave Albrecht really turned every- thing on and pinned his man twice, in the second and- third periods. Lately Dave has shown lots of promise, which all points to a good season for him. In the 112-pound match which followed, Jerry Austen was edged out in a very close fight which his opponent won by only three points. Wrestling at the 120-pound spot, Leonard Gordon met one of Rhodes most experienced men and was defeated only by the amount of time advantage his foe had over him. Dave Sheldon in the next weight was an- other loser by only two points. These three matches were all extremely close and, though the Green and White grapplers worked hard all the time, they were unable to break the Rhodes' lead. Another similar match was the 133- pound contest, in which Buddy Ober fell to a strong and experienced wrestler whose much greater height gave him a tremen- dous advantage. In the 138-pound weight class J ack Renner, who usually wrestles at this spot, was unable to compete. Chuck Critchfield was forced to take his place. He showed plenty of spirit all through his fight, but he was not experienced enough to cope with his foe who pinned him in the second period. At this point Reserve came back into the running when Wink Haggerty decisioned a very strong opponent. Rhodes countered, however, when another of their best men was only able to decision by a very narrow margin Dick Kaylor, whose experience is still very slight. As usual Jim Roush, wrestling at 165 pounds, again turned in a very fine performance. Nevertheless, credit must be given to his- opponent, whose rally gave him a good iight and limited him to a decision. In the final match of the day Phil Hartsock competed in his second match and, though he put up lots of resist- ance, inexperience again took a hand against Reserve as he was pinned in the last period. However, as he gets to know his wrestling even better, he will really make a fine contender. 'E''!"X"!'4"Z"!''Pi''I"I"!"I"X"I"Z"Z"!"X"I"3"l"!"!"F'i"Z"I"X'?'P rio exe 'X' 5. For V.

Q XX ' VOLUME XXII-No. I6 A X Three Ex-Reservites Reported Killed in Action, Devon Gilchrist, Charles Tice and Charles Killian: Two Graduates of 1940 Class Reported killed in action: Charles Killian, Charles Tice and Devon Gilchrist Recently, three more ex-Reserve men joined the ranks of the Gold Star List after serving their country well. All of the these gave their lives sometime ago, but con- firmation of their deaths has only recently reached the Academy. The first, Lt. Devon Gilchrist, entered Reserve in September, 1936, as a day boy from Hudson and immediately became a popular student. He was a member of the Record staff, Mugwumps, and varsity track and football squads. Devon gradu- ated in 1940 and soon after joined the Air Corps. He was reported missing in action on December 26, 1943, near Rabaul in the Southwest Pacific, flying with the Fifth Air Force. Charles A. Tice, who was a pupil at Re- serve for one year, was a member of the class of '39. When serving as an infan- tryman in the Ninth Division of the First Army, he was killed in action fighting the enemy in Germany on February 28, 1945. The third casualty was Lt. Charles J. "Boots" Killian, a 1940 graduate of Re- serve, who continued his education at Princeton. In the one year he spent here, he excelled in scholarship and athletic ability. He was presumed lost after the B-24 he was piloting lost contact with its home base off New Guinea. After a year-'s fruitless search the War Department listed him as officially dead. This brings to forty the total number of former Reservites who have died in the service of their country. Cory Brothers Elected Sophomore Representativesg Rogers, Williams, Lindsay, Junior Members of Council Monday morning the sophomore and jun- ior classes met to nominate the boys they wish to represent them for the duration of this school year. Tabulation of Monday's election revealed that from the sophomore class the follow- ing had been nominated: Bob Barnard, Jim Conners, Frank and Charles Cory, Pat Mosher, Jim Nobil and Leslie Wilson. The juniors nominated nine: Glen Car- ter, Nat Howard, Bill Lindsay, Johnny McCombe, Jack Renner, Dick Rogers, Dave Sheldon, Fritz Smith and Brad Williams. Wednesday morning the final elections were held. From the seven sophomore nominees two were chosen to join the Coun- cil, Frank and Charles Cory. The Cory twins came to Reserve this year and were on the varsity football squad during the fall term. At the present time they are stars on the reserve basketball squad. Frank and Charles come from Lima. After a very close fight in the junior class Bill Lindsay, Dick Rogers and Brad Williams were chosen to serve for the remainder of this year as junior Student Council representatives. Of the five boys elected from the two classes two will take their seats at the Council table for the first time. The three boys from the junior class at one time or another have served on the Council. Dick Rogers and Bill Lindsay were re-elected for another term. Brad Williams was a rep- resentative last year for the sophomore class. Before the end of the year the Student Council will receive one more member. The president of the freshman class who will be elected within two or three weeks, will be- come an ex-ofiicio non-voting member. The 'retiring members of the organiza- tion are: Nat Howard, Pat Mosher and Dick Dailey. - HUDSON, OHIO, JANUARY 31. I946 Mr. McGill Returns From Two-Day Chicago Trip Mr. McGill returned to the campus Sun- day after a two-day trip to Chicago, where he met with school alumni and friends dis- cussing the Million Dollar Campaign and where he also attended a meeting of ofiicers and the executive committee of the Private School Association of the Middle West. On Friday evening at the Union League Club in Chicago Mr. McGill was the guest of Judge and Mrs. Barnes and nine or ten other friends of the school. The group talked over the objective and the progress of the present campaign and the method by which the Chicago group will be ap- proached to assist in it. The executive committee and officers of the Private School Association drew up plans for a meeting which will occur late in March of this year. The general .theme of this meeting will be a careful survey of the status of private schools, reconver- sion problems with which they are now faced, and probable curricular trends in the immediate future. -i.. 1, 'Good Men' Subiect of Sunday Vesper Service Last Sunday evening the Reverend Harry Nicholson, father of the president of our Student Council, spoke in the vesper service on "Good Men". For contrast he com- pared Hitler, an example of a bad man, with Abraham Lincoln, an example of a good man, who, it was said, prayed for divine guidance when troubled by the weighty problems of the times and when looking for a peaceful answer to every situation. In striving to be a good man Mr. Nichol- son'said there were several qualities which were necessary in a good man-mercy, jus- tice, and the desire to walk humbly with God, prerequisites outlined in the Bible. By using familiar quotations, he showed how mercy and justice were often connected, but one could have both these qualities and lack humility. A soul, he concluded, could take the high road or the low road, but in most cases there was a tendency to wander in between. Get Your Date Cards Now! With the close schedule observed in the winter term, it is wise to get the dance schedule in mind. The fourth council dance, rescheduled to February 9, will require date cards on next Monday, February 4. No doubt juniors and seniors are doing a lot of thinking about the houseparty, but now is the time to make final arrange- ments with your date. Date cards are clue February 6.

Reardon Reconversion--Social and Economic During recent weeks newspaper headlines have been almost exclusively devoted to news of labor-management strife. The program of reconversion which was begun by our government soon after Japan's collapse has been all but halted by stumbling blocks originating from labor disputes. Hardly a day passes when there is not the threat of another strike with its consequent incon- veniences. The strike of telephone operators which occurred not long ago seemed to us a per- sonal blow. And striking workers at meat- packing plants threatened to recall wartime food supply difficulties. New automobiles lay half-completed on inactive assembly lines, while an anxious public impatiently awaited products advertised but non-exist- ent. The labor problem is today foremost on the nation's economic front. It is an issue that has arisen to such a state of crisis only during recent years. Labor disputes are born of social unrest. Such troubles did not bother our forefathers, since in their day there was little agitation between employer and employee. Factories and communities were small. The manager knew his subordinates, respected them, and took a personal interest in their welfare. In return, the employees gave their employ- er their best work and utmost loyalty. vlndeed, the labor situation of fifty years ago was, by comparison with that of today, ideal. Unfortunately, however, such a re- lationship seems impossible in this twen- tieth century world, with its advanced meth- ods of manufacture-progressive steps with which society has thus far been unable to keep pace. What is the answer? We haven't found it yet. But we have unlimited faith in de- mocracy. Surely it is broad enough in scope to provide an economic plan suitable to the times. We have no need for a "glorious" revolution. W.R.A.-I2O Years Oi Building 7 We, as students of Western Reserve Academy, are endowed with a great privi- lege and responsibility. We are receiving the very best in secondary school education and have the name of one of the country's foremost private schools in support of us, both of which will be a great benefit in later years. That is the privilege we are re- ceiving here. The fact that Reserve is so well known and so highly regarded gives us the responsibility of helping to protect our school's good name. Almost anywhere you go, it is the people in our age bracket that attract the most attention and, occasionally, criticism. If we were five years younger, almost anything we did would be looked on as an innocent, childhood prank. If we were five years older, much of what we might do would seem quite natural. But most people read our characters by our actions, and as a school like Reserve has much to. do with building our personalities and characters, everything we say and do naturally re- Hects back on the school. When we are at home, the things we say and do are usually thought to have orig- inated at Reserve. While at school, the same things are a sign of what our home background is like. And while we are away from both, both are implicated by our speech and actions. It is more or less natural for people to be more than usually interested in what we, the younger genera- tion, are doing because of the current ju- venile crime wave that is everywhere in the country's news. That doesn't mean that everyone thinks that anyone between the ages of twelve and nineteen is a confirmed killer and drug addict, but if our showing outside the school isn't befitting of our background and education, then the conclusions that people invariably jump to may not always be the best. Just remember that the name West- ern Reserve Academy and all it stands for is a heritage of which we should be justly proud. It is our duty and privilege to keep that name in as high a place as it has al- ways been in the past. It has taken about one hundred and twenty classes to build up Reserve's reputation. Let's not be the one to tear it down. llefdinikwuve Friday, February 1--Chapel, 8:05. Mr. Dodge speaks. Saturday, February 2-Wrestling meet with Cleveland West Tech, here, 2:30.

Just " experiencing what we Il write is hard enough. -- Unlike the "authors" of 1 "Just for the Record", AQ-'gi 2 ' the creators of this fifu. it ,, column are born, not made, and like Gersh- . 7 "'-'i win, these geniuses ii j soon burn themselves ,.. " "IV out. Remember when -0 the column was signed "R.S."? Ronald Schmaltz had an amazingly long run of success on the staff. One day shortly after writing a satire on his parents for the Record, Ronald counted up his dis- charge points and took a week end home. Reserve has never heard from him since. Even inquiries about tuition refund were in vain. Consider also the sad case of Ghengis Vahn. Surely you remember the weeks when even Tebby read the Record because of "G.V." His story is also one of suc- cess, fame, glory. But alas, one day, grop- ing for a subject, he wandered into the Evamere woods. Later reports by Kent State College girls told of a heavily-beard- ed fellow walking 'past their dorm, pad in hand, pencil point to lips, muttering to himself-"Fellow students, do you realize what would have happened if Little Or- phan Annie hadn't had ears?-no, no, no! . . . Intellectually minded people around the campus have been ,wondering whether the last cold wave froze the water in the water tower-WELL-no, no." Perhaps the saddest story of all belongs to "D.H.", who worked purely by inspira- tion. Whenever the spirit hit him, "D, H." dropped everything and scribbled. His heart was poured into each word, and things went well for him. "Large Women," a sequel to "Little Women," was written at a Laurel Dorm danceg "The Long and Short of Cigarette Butts" flowed from his pen at the 105th Street Bus stationg "The Uses of a Swimming Nose-Clip" emerged from a period in Chem lab, with an extra para- graph added in Chapel. - But although D. H. didn't know it, all good things must end. Just at the acme of his success, when fan-mail from Uni- versity's lower school, encouraged by staff members of the "University School News", was at its peak, D. H. made a faux pas. During the final exams of the winter term the thought struck him-"Morse Code: A Must." And so he wrote, and rewrote, un- til a classic was born. The Record was a sellout that week, but D. H. had meanwhile flunked out. He is now writing for the New Yorker. Thursday, February 7--Chapel, 8:05. Mr. Kitzmiller speaks. January 31, 1946 RESERVE RECORD Page 65 Swimmers Churn 40-26,Vicfory Over Showp ff. 11 MESH 'C' Take Third Victory From Shaker Heights MQ if f' Q -Q Again last Saturday the swimming team turned in an admirable performance and saved the athletic face of the school by whipping a Cleveland Shaw squad, 40-26, while wrestling and basketball teams went down in defeat. The Ricker squad, chalking up its second straight victory in the tank, dominated the whole meet with the Cleve- landers by taking all but two events. Fleet Dave Nesbitt carded the first home points when he won the 50-yard freestyle, his teammate and roommate, Dick Nichols. capturing a close third. When the pistol cracked next, Sophomore Harry Hunsicker stretched his breaststroke victories to three straight by winning the 100-yard breast- stroke swim, closely trailed by determined Stu Leeb, who swam the four laps only a second or two slower. The 200-yard free- style was easily taken by Distance Man Bud Ryan in good time, Herb Gleason touching third in the race. Reserve's backstroke speedster, Glenn Carter, then churned four fast laps in the 100-yard backstroke to boost the team's score five points while Alan Krause, overcoming a slow start, took third place. Shaw tasted its first victory in the 100- yard freestyle when Cumber stopped the watches in the fast time of 58.9, Bud Ryan and Dick Nichols taking second and third respectively for the Green and White. The diving competition was close, Dick Rogers chalking up the highest total while Shaw took second and third. Alex Post, freshman diver, although not placing in the stiff com- -petition, performed very commendably from the board, considering his lack of experi- ence and training. The powerful Reserve medley relay trio, Carter, Hunsicker, and Nesbitt, easily cap- tured their relay event to give the team five more points. Finally, the Reserve com- bination of Breckenridge, Gleason, Krause, and Rogers was outdistanced by the visiting four but the final score, 40-26, showed a definite superiority in favor of the Reserve squad. 50-YARD I1'ltEES'l'Yl.E-Won by Nesbitt. fR.l: Hut- iun 1S.l. 2: Ni:-hols tR.l.

Reserve's potent swimming team passed the 500 percent mark on Tuesday afternoon with their third win of the season over Shaker Heights of Cleveland by the score of 36 to 30. Swimming in the shorter Heights' pool, the tankers dropped a first and third in the 40-yard freestyle race. Dave Nesbitt took the second spot by a brilliant burst of speed. It was the Green and White out in front in the next three races. Harry Hunsicker captured the breaststroke, followed closely by Stu Leeb, Bud Ryan took the 200-yard freestyle, and- Glen Carter came close to the school record in his performance in the backstroke. Had the pool not been so short and necessitated more turns, Glen might have set a new record. As it turned out, he was one and one-tenth second behind the lowest mark. ' Bill Murica, an agile performer, again nosed Dace Nesbitt out in the 100-yard freestyle, as he did in the 40-yard churn. 1 In diving, Dick Rogers' undefeated streak was broken by the experienced Wells of Shaker. Unused to the board, Dick could cnly take second place. Shaker's combination for the 160-yard relay, plus the shorter length, was too much for the Pioneer four, but a win in the medley relay before had clinched the meet for the Reservites in spite of the seven points awarded for the final relay. With this third win, Coach Larry Ricker's charges are showing that they have the winning punch. Rigid training, a week without outside competition plus these last three straight victories ought to enable them to give Oberlin's team a tough fight. 40-YARD FREESTYLE-Murica lS.l, won: Nesbitt lR.l, 2: Silver lS.l, 3. 100-YARD BACKSTROKE-Carter fR.l, won: Krause llt.l. 2:Hnl1n lS.l. 3. 200-YARD FREESTYLE--Ryan iR.l, won: Brunner fS.l, 2: Gleason fR.l. 3. 100-YARD BREASTSTROKEf-Hunsicker Htl, wnng Leel1iR.l. 2: Cn . vt S.l. 3. rnsvsee I l00-YARD FREESTYLE-Murica lS.l, won: Nes- bitt fR.l, 22 McKay fS.l, 3. fqIlIVfING-Wells fS.l, won: Rogers iR.l. 2: Mrlntyre r. , .,.

The Pioneers' fifth loss, the game wasn't the rout that the score would show it to- be. South jumped out in front at the very beginning and posted an 11-5 score at the end of the initial quarter, but the Green and White kept with them and didn't give them any rest throughout the fray. Guarded with a close man-to-man de- fense, the home five were able to score by driving through to the basket. They stayed with the Blue and White all through the first half after their own man-to-man de- fense had' stopped the sharp-shooting Cava- liers. With Denis Sullivan on Akron's high this season, Eli Joyce, the of the Rubber City team point man for scoring punch shifted to Don Beck. It was Dave Nichol- Hollinger that contributed son and Dave the main part of Reserve's scoring for the first half. The Reservites had dropped twelve points behind by the end of the third period, and it was apparent that the height advantage that the visitors held was winning the fast fray. Frank Austen meshed the nets for Starting out with fourteen points in the first quarter, the Reserve varsity throttled the Ravenna Township basketball squad last Wednesday by the score of 36 to 31. It was the first win of the season for the Green and White. The Pioneers ran their opponents off their feet in the first stanza and kept most of the advantage as they scored at the same pace with the other team in the second frame. Wally sent the second team in to finish the half, and they did quite well, although they didn't score as often. The first team returned after the half and quickly lost most of the first half lead until, with the advantage dwindled down to two points, the second squad took over. Ravenna shot in a goal and the score stood 29-29. From here the seconds' plays began to work and they hit from the side for two points. This and a foul put the score at 32-29 as the foes exchanged a pair of in- tercepted passes. With four minutes to go the first squad returned to action and, after an exchange of buckets and another Re- serve score, the Pioneers froze the ball for the remaining time. -r the points that the Pioneers did make, while Reserve Ravenna Twp.

For the most part it was a bleak day for the Green and White although the performances of Bruce Rog- ers at 12.0, Jerry Austen at 1123, and the team's most consistent winners, Wink Hag- gerty and Jim Roush, saved the meet from being a complete failure. Shore took the lead in the first match when Dave Albrecht was decisioned by Mi- helic of Shore, who used a system entirely new to Dave. It was, however, a close match in which Dave showed more promise of becoming a fine wrestler. Showing some of the stuff which made him very successful last year, Jerry Aus- ten led his opponent all the way to tie the score at 3-3. Jerry was on top during most of the fight while never being in any dan- ger of defeat. At the 120-pound weight Bruce Rogers fell to his foe by time-advantage only. At the end of the match the points were even but the Shore boy had the edge in time. Bruce deserves a lot of praise for the job he did in his first match against outside competition. Bill Rabe weighing 127 met Machi of Shore, who seemed to know just about every- thing connected with the wrestling team. Machi was obviously more experienced but was able to pin Rabe only cnce, while being forced to take the defensive for the entire last period. Buddy Ober at 133 gave the audience the most exciting match of the day. The points were even at the middle of the third period and from them on to the end it was any- body's win. The two evenly matched boys, however, could do nothing more, and the match ended in a draw. The match at 138 was very uneventful until the second period when Jack Renner lost two points to his man for a near fall. Though he fought hard all through the third period, Jack could not regain. the points, and he was decisioned. Wink Haggerty, one of the Green and White standbys, wrestled and decisioned McLain, the Shore captain. McLain was a very able wrestler, but even the best look small beside Haggerty, who has won all his matches and seems destined to rank high in the lists of state champions. Les Wilson, a sophomore, wrestled Satur- day in place of Dick Kaylor, who was ill. In the first period Wilson was able to escape a pin for a minute and forty seconds while the time ran out. This feat, however, took too much of Les' strength, and he was pinned late in the second period. Jim Roush, another mainstay of the Re- serve team, decisioned Marino of Euclid Shore in the 165-pound class. Roush, last year's state champion, is undefeated this year and has run up an enviable record. In the heavyweight class, Phil Hartsock was pinned in the second period though he fought a hard fight. Cleveland Qc-N RQ, FHESEIME BR Here ls Your Chance to Win Twenty Dollars The second RECORD sponsored competi- tion of this year will consist of four differ- ent contests, in order to satisfy variant groups in the school. The contest will include a test for writing ability, which in turn will be divided into two divisions. The first competition will require the writing of an editorial on some phase of school life or some current topic. This will be judged upon originality of the composition and the subject matter. The second writing contest will require the writing of a humorous column. This will be judged on the writer's success with creative ability and his understanding of human nature. The third division of the contest will be run for the cartoonists of the school. Re- quirements include originality and technical skill. The drawings must be on some aspect of school life, well-drawn and original. The photography contest will be run on the same basis as' heretofore. Each of these four divisions offers to its winner five dollars. A boy may enter as many pictures, compositions or cartoons as he pleases in any or all contests. The entries will be judged by the edi- torial board of the school paper together with a faculty committee which will be chosen later by the editorial board. Ma- terial should be entered as soon as possible. No dead-line has as yet been set. The nature of the contest has been en- larged this year because many students have requested that writing ability be rec- ognized as well as the technical skills re- quired in photography and cartooning. We hope that the response will justify the change and that there will be many entries. Vesper Speaker At the Sunday evening Vesper Service at 7 p. m. on February 10, Reserve will be privileged to have as its speaker Dr. Homer FL Barnes, for- mer head of W. R. A.'s English de- partment, now residing at Pasadena, California. Dr. Barnes came to the academy in 1926, and left in the summer of 1930 to become the principal of the Boys' School of the Kamehameha Schools in Hawaii. Three years later he was made the headmaster of the entire organization. Dr. Barnes served as an army officer in World War I. He is the holder of an A. B. degree from the University of West Virginia, an A. M. from Har- vard and a Ph. D. from Columbia.

A week ago the class met and nominated by secret ballot five boys: Ed Winslow, Guy Williams, Tom Swanston, Alex Post, and Jack Timmis. On 'Monday freshmen gath- ered again to elect, also by secret ballot, a president, vice president, and a secretary- treasurer. The results of these ballots were: Guy Williams was chosen the class presidentg Alex Post, vice president, and Tom Swanston, secretary-treasurer. Their term of office will last at least until the end of the spring term this year. Guy Williams hails from the fair hills of Gates Mills, and arrived here this year just in time to assist his brother Bruce through his senior year and graduation. Well-built, with sandy, clipped hair, Guy was on the varsity soccer squad this fall and shows great promise in future sports. Al Post is an Akronite whose brother Herm graduated last year. This term he is on the swimming team as a diver. Blonde- haired and slim, he has a perpetaual grin which hides what troubles he may have. As vice president his duties will be to assist in all freshman activities and take over the presidency should anything happen to Guy. Tom Swanston is the freckle-faced freshie whose bounding walk makes his height even more noticeable. Recently he moved into the Athenaeum, since his father, Captain Swanston of the USN, has received new duties in the Brooklyn navy yard. -i1. .i Glee Club Plans for Pierce House Concert Friday Night For the last few weeks the glee club has been working -in preparation for a concert for Doctor Hayden tomorrow night, Febru- ary 7, immediately after dinner. The pro- gram will include the Fight Song, the Alma Mater, "Prayer of Thanksgiving", "I Sought the Lord", "Massa Dear", and "Rantin', Rovin', Robin". This will be the first of several concerts which the club has planned or is planning. Already the date has been set for the Laurel concert next spring and another date with Hathaway-Brown School. The University School glee club is coming down sometime this year, and we are planning a concert at U. S. There is also the pos- sibility that the club will sing at Old Trail School, the Portage Country Club, and the Hudson Boys Farm. The ultimate goal of the club is to par- ticipate in a concert as part of a chorus including the Laurel, Hathaway-Brown, and University School glee clubs. i Page 68 RESERVE RECORD February 7, 1946 THE RESERVE RECORD Published every Thursday during the school year by the students of Western Reserve Academy, ' Hudson, Ohlo Joel B.

Reardon The Athenaeum ., Surely it is safe to say that the majority of all the boys at Reserve have at one time lived in the Athenaeum. Some boys have been fortunate or unfortunate enough to live there for more than one year, while others have spent but a few months in the building. There is no doubt that the major- ity of the boys have enjoyed living there. for there are a great many advantages which life in that building affords. But for a moment let us stop and ponder that statement a little more carefully. By its very construction the building offers one of its most important advantages. It is divided into four floors, each of which offers living quarters for a comparatively small number of boys. These boys make friends according to their floors, and these groups become close knit because of the fact that they live in close proximity. Surely this is one of the greatest benefits of boarding school life. In other words, the "floors" in the Athenaeum present much the same group idea as do the "entries", which are so popular in many other schools and col- leges. Then too, the number of boys in the Athenaeum is comparatively small, and that makes for a comfortable and efficient dor- mitory. And lastly, and probably most important, the Athenaeum provides a separate dor- mitory where the freshmen can easily find themselves when they first arrive at Re- serve and where they can spend their first year getting used to the school before it is necessary for them to step immediately into all its affairs. - But there is another side to this question, and one which should be at least mentioned in passing. The fact that the Athenaeum is old, almost as old as the school itself, makes it a valuable member of the school plant, both because it is an example of the fine old architecture of the school and be- cause much of the academy's history is con- cerned with the Athenaeum. But to a large extent its age is a drawback as far as com- fort is concerned, for it is difficult to clean and it does get very untidy because of its age. Moreover, it is extremely noisy and no place within it is free from the noise created in any other part. The drawbacks mentioned above make the task of those who live in the building more arduous. Surely for this reason the renovation of the Athenaeum should receive full consideration in the contemplated build- ing program. ,1.. ......-. Help the School Council! Last week the junior and sophomore classes elected their representatives to the school council for the remainder of the year. By electing these men the members of the two classes gave expression to their choice. Many, however, seem to forget the council immediately after the elections, at the time when the council is in most need of help. .The council is not an all powerful group. It is subject to veto just as the Congress of our United States. It is the duty of a congressman to make suggestions, sugges- tions arising from the opinions of his con- stituents. Much of a senator's or a repre- sentative's time is taken up in interviewing his constituency to find out what it wants done. The same 'situation exists in the school council, although the response of the voters has not been too good. The council has tried to remedy the lack of interest. A box has been placed in the to receive sugges- lower hall of Seymour tions. It is true that a few have been re- ceived but for the most part they pertained to the good of a single group in the school. Few, if any, have suggested any permanent changes in school policy. The new council is seated to help you. No single member is expected to carry the load for his class or for any particular pupil. No man, no matter how able he might be, can express the beliefs of a com- bined group of individuals. Everybody in the school should personally assume a place on the council by keeping in close contact with his representative and by taking a little time out occasionally to help his school through his council.

It seems that some girls, al- ready invited to the houseparty, are now trying to get out of it and by foul means. One day while skat- ing, one frantic girl whipped out her fa- ther's straight razor V and slashed at her knee. This is only one in- - stance: others have "accidentally" broken collar bones and broken legs. WhatiI'm try- ing to point out is this: It's not worth it, girls. Any freshman at medical' school could tell you that these injuries won't be bother- some in two or three weeks. Furthermore, the houseparty committee has voted to allow girls to come with both legs and arms in casts, and in the event of stretcher cases, special quarters and entertainment has been planned.

Until then I thought Heliotrope was true and brave enough to stay at Reserve at least one night. Well, now I know she's all of that, and intelligent, too. She realized that these childish attempts were futile, that the chances of contracting mumps in the next week or so were slim. Therefore it upon herself to find a way to kind. And one night she hit upon it. After her parents were well asleep, she slipped out of bed and made a mixture of rat poison and a dash of arsenic. Then she wheeled the family car out of the garage and drove to the back of a well-known Shaker school where she spent her daylight hours. Break- ing a window, she slipped in and mixed the compound with everything she could find in the kitchen, then left as she had come. The next noon at lunch she sat perfectly still and watched everyone munching and sipping. Every once in a While she would mumble to herself-"Double, double, toil and troubleg Fire burn and cauldron bubble." So entranced was she at her devastation that she forgot to eat anything herself, which wouldn't have been so bad had she not given herself away. She was so sure of success that she had written a letter and mailed it. It read: "Dear Sonny, I am Heliotrope's mother, and as you have prob- ably heard, Heliotrope is in a deep coma from something she ate at school, as are many of her friends. Therefore I regret that she will not be able to come to the houseparty. Pray for her. Signed, Mrs. Heliotrope."

Pm not saying that there is a person who obeys the rule, I'm merely stating the fact that everyone knows about it. You can tell those who are the possessors of forbidden articles by the way they slink around the halls and hide in the shadows of the campus. Often, while enjoying my evening constitutional, I have come upon a hoy huddled behind a bush engrossed in "Mr. District Attorney's" latest exploit or chortling over Bob Hope's latest anecdote. Recently the fad of imitating one "Senator Claghorn" achieved campus-wide popular- ity. How can anyone say that radios do not exist here? And those "Air-wicks" and incense burners aren't to keep the room smelling nice. Oh, no, they are used to take away the beautiful aroma of a freshly roasted rib of beef with all the fixings as cooked by one of the better student chefs. However, it.'s the boys who are legal to the extent of only having a wind-up vic- trola in their rooms that get my goat.

Competing in the 145-pound class this year, Wilbert has added five points to the team score in every match but one during the present s e a s o n. , In the m a t c h with West Tech he s e c u r e d a draw. In one match he pinned in one min- ute and 43 seconds. During his first two years at Reserve he served as an officer of the class of '46 and at present he is a pre- fect in the Athenaeum. Beside his athletic ability the grappler maintains high aver- ages in scholastic work. In addition to playing guard in football and wrestling in the winter season, "Wink" puts his endurance to good use in the spring by running the distances in track. Deservedly he is one of the most popular men of his class, and the RECORD wishes him con- tinued success in the ranks of "R" men. "Wink" Haggerty Swimmers TieCity Champs In Best Showing of Season Yesterday' afternoon Coach Ricker's swim- ming squad turned in one of its best all round performances of the season to tie East Tech, Cleveland City Champions, 33-33. The whole contest was a thriller, the final 200-yard freestyle relay event meaning the difference between a tie and a loss for the home team. In every event the alertness and spirit of the Green and White swimmers was evident and probably the deciding fac- tor in many close races. The home team got off to a fast start in the 50-yard -freestyle, Bud Ryan and Dave Nesbitt touching first and second, respectively, to put Reserve ahead, 8-1. However Tech countered in the 100-yard breaststroke with a first and second place, both in fast time, while Reserve's Hun- sicker won third, to tie the score. Tech also dominated the third event, the 200'-yard freestyle, capturing first and second place honors while Herb Gleason took a third. Glenn Carter then chalked up another back- stroke victory when he outdistanced Tech's undefeated backstroker, Alan Krause touch- ing the second Tech man out for a third. The most crucial and hair-raising event of the afternoon followed when the 1001-yard free- style came up. Bud Ryan, stroking well and making good turns, touched the Tech man out in fast time for his second win of the afternoon while Rich Nichols came in third. The diving event, consisting of six dives under the new rules, was won by Dick Rogers for the Green and White.

Page 70' ' R E S E R V E R E C 0 R D February 7, 1946 West Tech Downs Reserve Mutmen, 32-5 Last Saturday afternoon an extremely powerful West Tech wrestling squad in- vaded the Reserve campus and returned to Cleveland with a decisive 32-5 victory un- der their belts. As the score would indicate, the meet was Tech's all the way, the vis- itors dominating all but two weights. The meet got off to a bad start for Re- serve when Eddie Dewey, performing on the mat for the first time this year, was pinned in the second period of his match by a fast and tricky adversary. At 112 pounds Jerry Austin met a veteran and was decisioned in a fast moving match. Leonard Gordon, wrestling in the 120Lpound class, waged a valiant battle but was de- cisioned by a fast, strong foe. In the 128-pound class Bill Rabe met West Tech's captain and after staging a very commendable scrap lost on a decision. Roy Ober, Reserve's 133 pounder, encoun- tered a husky, quick boy and was finally pinned late in the third period. Jack Renner met Tech's 138-pound man who had to use all his skill and strength to gain a decision after a fast and changeable bout. Probably the most thrilling match of the afternoon was in the 145-pound class. "Wink" Haggerty, fighting all the way, se- cured a tie with one of Tech's best men. Only a last minute effort saved the Cleve- lander from being decisioned. Sophomore Les Wilson again exhibited marvelous fight- ing spirit in his match at 155 pounds but was decisioned after a fierce scrap. Reserve took its only win of the after- noon when Jim Roush, Coach Ellis's 165- pound mainstay, turned in another beauti- ful performance of skill and speed to deci- sion a tricky West Tech grappler. Phil Hartsock, wrestling in the 185-pound spot, was pinned in the second and third periods to chalk up another five points for Tech, the final score being 32-5. n ni PRINTER? 2212-I8 Superior Ave. 0 MAln 2091 0 Cleveland, 0. By Kymnn Reserve Five Deieats Tallmadge, 32-30g Resumes Interstate League With Buffalo Encounter Playing in a strange, small gym, the Pioneer five dropped its fifth fray to Nich- ols School Saturday by a score of 38 to 36. The Green and White were handicapped by their strange surroundings and the dif- ferent officiating but it was a lack of initia- tive in shooting and under the back boards coupled with a failure to hit from the foul line on seventeen out of twenty-three chances that lost the game for them. Where the Nichols quintet had an advantage in their gym, the Reservites had one in height. Nichols connected on a long fielder be- fore the Reserve five had time to set them- selves, and from there in they held the lead. It wasn't until the second period that the visitors' team began to connect. Led by George Vaught, they brought the score to 21 to 20 still in Nichols' favor. In the last half accuracy from the foul lihe netted Nichols their points. Through- out the whole game they only failed from the line on four out of eighteen chances. Frank Austen and Dave Hollinger led the Reservites in trying to close the gap during the fourth stanza. Turn over passes while in a scoring position and taking steps in shooting a basket were faults that kept Re- serve from overcoming their inter-state competitor. With ten seconds to go, the Green and White took the ball out-of-bounds at Nichols' end of the floor, but their oppo- sition was able to bottle the ball up until the final horn sounded.

Leading all the way, the Green and White were forced to stave off a last minute burst from the visitors to win. The field goal by George Vaught in the final minute gave the Reservites their winning margin. Unable to mesh any other points, the Pioneers protected their lead by trying to stop Tallmadge's Don Richards. Rich- ards fired three two-pointers in the closing minutes to bring his team close to a tie. Breaking away fast, the Reserve five amassed a nine-point lead by the quarter, and coasted until the close of the half. They only scored seven markers to their opposi- tion's ten in the second period. It was Denis Sullivan and Dave Hollinger that led this attack. After the intermission neither team seemed to be able to find their marks. Each team put in three fielders and a foul toss to make up the third stanza's scoring. In the final quarter Richards and his teammates broke loose to close the six- point margin the Pioneers still held, while the Green and White were allowed only two action shots. George Vaught led the Reservites in the scoring column, contributing a fielder in each period. In the preliminary game a field goal by Nat Howard from the edge of the foul circle tied up the game in the last two seconds. A foul shot through the nets by Pat Mosher was the margin the Pioneers held over the Blue and Gold at the end of a three-minute overtime. The score was 32 to 30. Reserve Tallmadqe U G. F. T. G. F.

On March 10 the Cleveland Orchestra, conducted by Rudolph Ringwell, is sched- uled to play "A Fogue in A Minor" written in 1939 by Joel B. Hayden, Jr., Dr. Hayden's son. This piece, composed by Joel when studying under Mr. King in Reserve's de- partment of music, was first presented to the public in 1939 in the Fifth Annual Music Festival. Later it was played by the Memphis Symphony Orchestra with Burnet C. Tuthill as conductor. Lieut. Hayden is a graduate of Oberlin College where he majored in music. He is now serving on the China coast as officer in the United States Naval Reserve. Joel B. Ilayrlen, Jr. Stop Waste In Western Reserve Academy it is not surprising to hear that there is waste, nor does it occur in alarming amounts. However, it is estimated that of the approximately 510,000 which is spent annually for heat, light, and water, between 35500 and S700 is waste. Add to this some S300 which goes for breakage every year and you have the price of a full schol- arship for one boy, 51000, or two S500 scholarships. Look on it in another way. If this money is accumulated over a number of years and added to other savings in the budget, it may be used for buildings, additions, and other improvements to the school plant and campus. Perhaps this amount has a more personal connotation when it is con- sidered that S1000 would buy 20,000 five-cent candy bars, or enough so that every boy in the school could have 100 apiece. It would buy about 6500 sundaes or milkshakes at Saywell's, which is only somewhat over 30' for every boy, but that is enough for a couple of days. And, to mention but one more close example, it would amount to about 2500 passes to the movies. It might even be possible to make the movies in the gym free if a sufficient effort were made on the part of the boys. Waste, of course, is.always unnec- essary and does no one any good. Nor in most cases is there any excuse other than carelessness for breakage. For these reasons, it can be almost entirely avoided if a little care is shown, and a little consideration. Moreover the habit of thrift is a good one to get into if not carried too far. Surely Reservites run no danger of doing that at the moment. Glee Club Sings lor Dr. Hayden After dinner last Friday evening the Glee Club advanced on Pierce House for its scheduled appointment with the headmaster. Directed by Mr. Clewell and accompanied by Mr. King and Mrs. Evans, the club began its brief concert by singing several of Dr. Hayden's favorite hymns. Besides these, the club rendered "A Prayer of Thanksgiving", Massa Dear", and "Rantin', Rovin' Robin". Highlight of the evening was the 0ctet's rendition of the popular favorite, "Okla- homa!". Miss Tinker accompanied on the piano for this number. Former Master Concludes Visit With Vesper Talk Dr. Homer F. Barnes Reserve was fortunate to have, as guest speaker for the Sunday vesper services, Dr. Homer F. Barnes, formerly the head of Re- serve's English department, who spoke on the subject of f'Keeping an attitude of re- sponsibility to our fellow men". Dr. Barnes, in discussing our duties toward responsi- bility, cited the teachings of Jesus, 2,000 years ago, who said, "Love thy neighbor as thyself." He pointed out that if we feel we are on the right road, we can reach our destinationg and, in answer to the question, "What is failure?" he observed that one is not a failure, so long as he is trying in the true sense of the word. Edison failed in 4,000 continuous experi- ments before he found the proper filament to invent the electric light. Dr. Barnes fur- ther observed that effort is probably the most important function of living, that the United States is founded on the tradition of the "will to win" and the endurance of hardships. He emphasized his regret that schools in this country put too much em- phasis on books and learning and not enough on the effort and responsibility of their students. The talk was concluded by a reference to the clause in the United Na- tions' charter on "human rights", and the duty of the United States in regard to her responsibility to the rest of the world for the promotion of enduring peace. Dr. Barnes, now a resident of Pasadena, California, was head of W. R. A.'s English department during the years 192.6-30, and later became the principal of the Kame- hameha schools in Hawaii.

Reardon Following the Leader Have you ever stopped to think of the num- ber of times we have been talked into doing things against our own best judgment? All over the world people have been taken into the power of others' influence and led to be- lieve and act in a way at variance with their own beliefs. Probably the most re- cent and most illustrative resulted in the Fascist and Nazi type of government in the European countries. People accepted the word of the dictators as the standard by which they were to run their lives merely because they were too weak to makeup their own minds and live by their own be- liefs. You are probably wondering now just how this applies to us-how we at Reserve are guilty of "following the leader". Perhaps we are not conscious of the fact, but few of us use our own discretion and better judgment when it comes to making our own decisions. Naturally we are tempted to follow everyone else. This is most decidedly true when it comes to elections. Mob psy- chology has worked many times in electing, not necessarily, the best-suited man for the job, but the best liked person and the per- son approved by the leaders. Putzes are instituted by a leader and then usually carried out by an admiring group. The latter, most of the times, is the one caught. It won't be long before we shall be enter- ing college. There it will be impossible to depend upon the leader's decisions on such matters as vocational choice. It will be necessary for us to make our own. Be- cause we must make them soon or later now is the time to begin! When a suggestion arises, stop to think it over first! Is it the right thing to do? Is it what I. should do? Will it in some ad- verse way thwart my character, my friend- ships, my future? Boys that are able to make their own decisions and stick by them may be disliked by the mob, but later these boys are respected for the same ability. Be your own leader: make your own decisions, right or wrong: stick with them and stop "following the leader"! WITHOUT RESERVE "Frunk1y, Miz.

This is due " to several factors, but mostly to the attitude of girls-especially Cleveland girls-toward Reserve. I could go on for several columns about the treatment they receive at dances, their stubbornness on week ends, and atti- tudes expressed during intermissiong but I think a letter which the editors received just the other day, and which happens to be in Heliotrope's handwriting, puts into words exactly what is wrong with Reserve. Naturally, you all have read the frequent protests of some girls concerning the con- duct of returned soldiers, well, this is some- what similar. It reads: "Dear Reservite on parole, or in any other way not under the jurisdiction of the school, As a basis for my gripe, I will first men- tion that there is a school in Shaker Heihts, called University School. Assum- ing that you have never heard of it, the only differences between Reserve and U. S. are: at Reserve one says, 'With whom is he going ?' and at U. S. they say, 'Whom is he going with 1zow'Z'g their letter sweaters are tailor made: and Reserve has a hockey pond. I don't mind coming to the dances at Re- serve when there is a reasonably big stag line, but when it comes to single-handed combat on a week end, or to a non-stag houseparty, I give up. In the first place, Reservites never seem to have a car on week ends, and if they do have one, they insist on taking it only to the nearest movie -never downtown! This wouldn't be so bad if Reservites didn't take it for granted that we are wait- ing for them on week ends. Therefore I petition the RESERVE RECORD to tell all the fellows up there that the next time they take a Saturday, they'd better stay away from Layman Circle and Shaker Square, and see a good show alone, because the U. S. boys get just awfully upset when we go out with Reservites. Signed, A Nice Girl. P. S.-Please plan your senior prom so that it isn't the same night as the U. S. one. Thank you." bluat ton the CRecondl It has recently been brought to my atten- tion 'by a noted cartoonist that "at Reserve nearly everyone reads the RECORD", which is more than can be said for this column. Nevertheless, nobody ever bothers to find out what ever happens to the RECORD after "nearly everyone" reads it. Evidences of the usefulness of the REC- ORD can be found in the many ways in which resourceful individuals use it. Dur- ing the recently settled Cleveland news- paper strike, the RECORD did an admir- able job of taking the places of the other and more famous Cleveland papers. Find- ing nothing else available to wrap their garbage in, Clevelanders-alumni of our noble institution-used their favorite school paper. Perhaps I should change the name of this column to 'Just for the Garbage". Some found the RECORD was splendid for stufling wet shoes, others discovered that it started a wonderful fire with the aid of a match and some fire wood, while still others enjoyed wrapping their sand- wiches in it. Here at Reserve each class found a dif- ferent use for their paper. Freshmen found that the RECORD made a practically un- sinkable boat. Now they can hardly wait for the ice to get off the hockey pond so that their fleet with "the admiral" in com- mand may take to the water. Towne Ban- 'non, terror of the third floor, discovered what excellent "spit-balls" the RECORD made. A member of their class taught the juniors a nifty "paper tearing" trick using the RECORD as his prop. Seniors sent their back issues of the RECORD to Japan to help rebuild Japanese houses. All in all the RECORD turned in a "var- sity performancen at serving almost every- one in this critical period. B. H. W. Heed in Ream-Vfe Friday, February 15-Mr. Sa'adeh speaks in chapel, 8:05.

Miller as center, Divoll and Ayers as guards with Brady as an able substitute, paced what opposition the town- boys could furnish to a 44-36 victory last Sunday afternoon. This mptlcy group representing the commandos, an undefeated handball team, the wrestling team, and the inactive part of the basketball squad led all the way. Neither Joslyn, Clemin- shaw, Phillips, Pierce. nor Brown were able to cope with the offensive threat of these dorm boys. Earlier in the day on the volleyball court the prefects won a two out of three game victory over C. C. boys. With this victory the prefects strengthen their hopes for an undefeated season. The faculty, also undefeated, won three consecutive games from the second-floor boys from Cutler. ..l?. Iaunur For the Period Ending W. Gerald Austen Waller L. Brassert Rll'liai'd P.

On the ninth of February, 1946, an event of great moment took place at Reserve, the second and last Council dance of the sea- son. Although the day had started in a very cloudy manner, the afternoon was sunny, and there was a bright moon which illuminated the clear, crisp night. As usual the dance started at seven-thirty when the reception line of Don Kramer, his date, and Mr. and Mrs. Parker undertook its duties. There was always plenty of music although a certain Irishman seemed to show more Need Money? A week has passed since the RECORD announced its contest, and as yet no entries have been submitted. Obviously few of us noticed what fat rewards are in the offing for those who are interested.

At nine-thirty on the dot intermission came with its offering of refreshments and a clear moonlight night. There was also the added attraction or disturbance of a railroad flare hanging conspicuously from the water tower and shedding its light over the surrounding land. However the pleas- antries of intermission were too soon in- terrupted by the tolling of the chapel clock announcing the arrival of ten o'clock, when the dance recommenced. Nothing out of the ordinary happened through the last dance, the appropriate number "Mood Indigo". Formal "good eve- nings" were said, to be followed later by less formal farewells at the train station.

As has been the case all season, the Reserve points were made by the consistent winners of the team, Roush, Haggerty and Ober, while Bill Rabe supplied a draw to fill the score. Reserve went behind in the first match when Dave Albrecht was barely decisioned in a match which was full of fast action and excitement. Dave, who had kept up with his opponent until the last minute of the last period, lost by one point. Jerry Austen, wrestling at 113 pounds, went down before Vituj, the captain of the Garfield team, by two points in a slow match in which no points were made until the second period. At 121 pounds, Leonard Gordon met Mil- kovitch of Garfield, who last year was number three man at 103 pounds in the state. Though Gordon showed his best fight of the season he fell to his man by time advantage only in one of the closest tights of the afternoon. Bill Rabe gained a draw at the end of his match, which was well fought on both sides. Though his opponent had one more point than he, Bill had the necessary time advantage to get the draw. Buddy Ober made the score, 9-5, by tak- ing a decision over his man after a match in which Buddy was never headed. Fighting in the place of jack Renner, who was sick with chronic appendicitis, Chuck Critchfield fought all the way but was decisioned. Critch was giving his best at the end but couldn't seem to regain the needed points. At 145 pounds Wink Haggerty gave the audience one of the two big thrills of the afternoon when he pinned his man in one minute and thirty-five seconds of the first period. The pin was Haggerty's third of the year and he has yet to wrestle without gaining points for the team. The best part of Dick Kaylor's match was near the end of the last period when both men were on their feet fighting for the Reserve Five Smothered By lehmon, 50-26 Last Saturday the Green and White Pio- neers suffered one of their worst defeats at the hands of a powerful Canton Lehman squad. Except for a few minutes in the opening quarter, the Pioneers trailed for the whole game. Lehman's victory was due primarily to their height advantage and their ability to follow up their shots. Even though Reserve fought hard, Canton Lehman's advantage began to show early and they placed a wide margin between themselves and the Green and White at the close of the first period. At the beginning of the second quarter the Pioneers started to rally, but Lehman, by intercepting passes, blocking Reserve's shots, and succeeding in making their own, was enabled to possess an even greater lead than they held at the end of the opening period. The third stanza flew by with little scor- ing by either team, although Maxson, the opponents' center, made three during this session. The final period spelled a decisive loss for W. R. A., because Lehman was not only able to make good their shots from nearly any corner of the court, but held Reserve al- most scoreless. Sullivan and Nicholson led the Pioneer scoring with four field goals each. Canton Lehman's reserve squad also re- turned victorious, for they edged out the Green and White, 38-36, in a hard fought battle. Reserve-26 Canton Lehman-50 G. F. T. G. F. T.

Up until that time the score was even at 2-2., and though Dick came very close to gaining the needed points, his opponent won on time advantage. Jim Roush, the other regular winner of the team, almost equaled Haggerty's feat while taking just ten seconds longer to pin his man in the first period. Jim is also un- defeated this year. Bill Laub, wrestling for the Hrst time, rode his man all through the first two pe- riods and most of the third only to lose in the last nine seconds. It was a tough one to lose for Laub, as he put up a good fight. ofmzoioznxrixnzuxrizuxuguzi11011iq.. ,:, !

Showing up well in the strange, wide tank, the strokers captured several firsts and some supporting seconds and thirds to throw a. definite scare into the home squad. As usual, the report of the gun starting the fifty-yard freestyle got the meet under way, an Oberlin man touching first closely followed by Dave Nesbit for the Green and White. The ensuing 100-yard breaststroke was a thrilling event. Stu Leeb steadily gained on a much larger opponent and showed a gallant burst of speed at the finish to win. Reserve captured second and third in the 200-yard freestyle, Bud Ryan and Herb Gleason winning the honors. In the 100-yard backstroke Reservc's Carter again churned the four lengths in rapid succession to add five points to the team's score, while Alan Krause stroked a good race to take third. Oberlin exhib- ited considerable power in the 100-yard freestyle and captured both first and sec- ond in this event. Bud Ryan took a third and swam well, considering the fact that he had already competed in the 200-yard free- style. Reser've's divers, Rogers and Post, performed well off the strange board and took first and third respectively against the Oberlin representatives. At this point in the contest the score stood 27-27. Coach Ricker entered a powerful trio, Carter, -Leeb, Nesbitt, in the medley relay which was won by a large margin to add five points to our score. However, the four Oberlin mermen who competed in the 200- yard freestyle relay stroked a fast eight laps to outdistance the Krause, Breckin- ridge, Gleason and Rogers aggregation and thus set the final tabulation at 34-32. On the whole, the squad showed up well and is rounding into shape for the coming Canton McKinley meet.

It is our desire to make this an enjoyable week-end. In order that you may be well in- formed on the eve of the party as to what is going to happen during the next three days the RECORD publishes herewith the list of events which have been planned. Friday afternoon after all have arrived, the final athletic events of the winter term will be held, namely the swimming meet and wrestling match with University School of Cleveland, the academy's closest competitor. These events should prove to be most interesting since both teams are very evenly matched. The first formal gathering will be the Friday evening dinner. Couples may sit wherever they please for this meal. Im- mediately following dinner coffee will be served in the Common Room. A vesper service conducted by Mr. Dodge will be held in the chapel. You who have never been fortunate enough to hear Mr. Dodge will recall this as one of the memorable events of your visit. We who have, know what to expect. After changing into informal costume, the group will meet by the hockey pond for a short rally prior to the U. S. basketball game scheduled for Saturday. tFor those who have difficulty in finding him-Stu Leeb will be head cheerleadei-.J Dancing in the gym will begin immediately after the rally. Shortly after ten there will be a short program with a few selections on the piano by Mr. Cleary, onetime member of Tommy Dorsey's orchestra, and several attempts at singing by the octet. Among their selections will be "Oklahoma", "Ol' Man River" and the evening's special number "There, Little Girl, Don't Cry". Other entertainment also has been planned. During this informal dance a fire will be in the fireplace of the Common Room, where couples may partake of vitamins and refreshments, "cokes", popcorn and doughnuts. Boys are asked to say good-night to their dates before one o'clock in the morning! Since the boys do not wish to waste any part of Saturday, the rising time has been planned for rather early in the morn- ing. tAll schedules for meals, rising times, etc. will be posted in the dorms.J After breakfast couples are free to go hiking, ice skating fproviding the pond is frozenj, play pool in the gym or go swimming. After luncheon on Saturday the U. S.-Reserve basketball game will begin. There is also the District Swimming meet scheduled at the same time. Following the athletic events boys and their dates should begin preparing for the Junior Prom. The dance will be over by 1:00, with intermission from 11:00 until 11:30. Since the "chapel bell" does not ring at 11:30 it will be necessary to keep v track of your own time. Sunday morning church services will be conducted in the chapel by Dr. Dilworth Lupton, author and columnist of the Cleve- land Press. Sunday dinner will be at 1:00. After dinner-good-byes! 'The Two Doors' Topic of Friday Chapel Service This evening at seven-fifteen a service will be held in the chapel to inaugurate the evening program. At the first gathering, which will last for about three-quarters of an hour, Mr. Dodge, our eminent Latin teacher, phil- osopher and judge of men, will be the speaker. His subject will be "The Two D o o r s" and will concern the import- ant decisions o n e m u s t make in life. Mr. D o d g e has been at Reserve for three years, and for those who'haven't yet heard him speak, this will be a pleasant introduction to this mild Maine man and his humor. Last year the seniors chose him to be the speaker at Senior Chapel, and indications point to a repeat performance this year. wontlnuod on Page 77, Column 23 Willis E.

It marks the revival of an event well known to pre- war years-the junior-senior houseparty. We've made plans for this party for weeks, even months. There were meet- ings of the Executive Committee, the School Council, and numerous other groups chosen to take charge of various phases of entertainment. Squads were appointed for decorating and dish-washing alike. Juniors made plans to take up residence in the Athenaeum, underclassmen to spend a week end at home. And there Was, of course, the usual scramble to telephone booths by boys inviting dates, this time to an affair several weeks ahead. We're not saying, though, that the flurry of preparation was all ours. Knowing girls, as we like to think we do, we're sure that you had your families on edge for many a day and that your fathers looked with apprehension upon y0111' Sh0PPing Plans for formals and other such articles which they must have felt were unnecessary- There was, no doubt, a sigh of relief in your households when you announced that you were ready and "needed" nothing more. We appreciate the inconveniences have been yours, but-as you can see from reading the schedule of events-we, too, have been busy. We hope that your and ours has been well spent. You who are our guests know the DYO' gram as well as we: swimming, wrestling and basketball with Universityg the District, Swimming Championship meetg dances, for- mal and informalg hiking and chapel-with events as yet undisclosed to occupy any idle moments. Needless to say, we're glad Y0U'1'e here- And in welcoming you to Reserve's "fair halls" we hope sincerely that you will make yourselves at home in your new quarters and will find your stay here thoroughly enjoyable. We'll do our best to make it so! But now--On with the Show! that time WITHOUT RESERVE The Arrival if As' the black conver- V ' ' tible roared away, Helio X' wiped a tear from 1 I her eye and waved Q M feebly. After all, the l R - : U. S. boys didn't home I to drive her to the f'7'4f E' 5. houseparty. Z 41 K When the black speck , "" had vanished, she threw the bed roll to Y- Q, " 'iii her back and lifted the "' ' two trunks which the social committee had prescribed. On the way up the Cutler stairs she mumbled to herself: "Just three more fiightsg I know I can make it, I can, I CAN!" Halfway up the stairs she smelled perox- ide. "Pm your roommate!" a little voice called behind her. Before Helio could look around, a little fiuff of blond hair and three chauffeurs trotted past her toward the third floor. "See you in the room! Remember first one there gets choice of beds!" "Yassuh," replied Helio, shifting the bed roll to her other shoulder. She swung her skis around and started another flight of stairs, trying at the same time to keep the skates from cutting her leg. Yes, she had brought all that the committee suggested. Down at the bottom of one trunk lay her formal, where it wouldn't get wrinkled. Somewhere on top the formal were the arti- ficial gardenias, just in case! Wrapped in the blue jeans that she had worn in the lubritorium last summer were some books to read during intermission. When the housemother rushed up and pinned a medal on her, Heliotrope knew that she had reached the summit. Next she stumbled down the damp hall where sun- light would never enter. Sonny had told her so! At the end of the corridor was "the double room attractively decorated." Heliotrope saw it. "No-NO!" she screamed. "Please, I tell you I didn't answer the invi- tation. You don't want, me here! Won't anyone believe me?" By this time the housemother was literally dragging Helio. Then the door was shut with a metallic click and the bolt was slid into position. Except for the glowing personality of her roommate, the room was wholly dark. In each of two corners lay a bare mattress. Along the molding were rows of thumb tacks where "unframed pictures" hung only hours before, and in one corner stood a small loudspeaker. "Attention, inmates! Welcome to Re- serve!" By the deep, resonant, soothing voice one could tell it belonged to W. Moos. "The boys are outside waiting for you. Hear them! Oh, that's right-there's no win- dow. We'll let you out when you've fixed up the room and made the beds. In the closet, fmore volume, Mr. Cleminshawj in the closet you'll find a broom. It's your turn goat tom the 0Qecondl At last the houseparty-so long heralded by glassy stares and raised eyebrows-has arrived. Reservites have laid aside their comic books and yo-yos so that they might pursue something more interesting. Be- lieve me, everybody became interested when he heard that girls were coming to this party. It's been so long! Allow me in this so-called "humor" col- umn to extend Reserve's greetings to all you lucky girls. Providing that the prayers of the U. S. boys, who have been prostrate before images of the rain gods, do not come to pass, you girls should have an enjoyable stay at Reserve. Our stags are truly hand- someg why they couldn't get dates is be- yond me. There is lots to do and some of you may even get to dance with someone besides the guy who brought you. Sullivan even got his date card filled. Above all don't be frightened by the bache- lors and unescorted married men who roam the halls at night under the guise of chaper- ons. Just lock your doors. Y0u'll keep them out and the rats in. Naturally we don't want the rats to get out-they're such nice companions. Everything else should be fine. I have been informed that some girls favor our worthy athletic opponents of the next two days, University School, to us. Now, girls, which would you rather have, a good-looking guy with a Mercury con- vertible, a yacht, a summer home, and a sizable inheritance or one of us? In spite of your answer we're glad you're here and we wish you could stay longer-to help us with our lessons, of course. Pictures to Be Taken Friday Want your picture taken? If you do be present at the gym Friday evening at 10:15. The Akron Beacon Journal has notified the academy that it plans to send a photogra- pher to visit the campus at approximately this time. We strongly advise you then, if you desire to have your picture taken, to visit the gym at the appointed time. Along with the professional photogra- phers from the BEACON paper will be the representatives of the RECORD taking pictures for the February 28 issue of the paper. "Deo Volente", this issue of the weekly pulp sheet, will be mailed to all Houseparty guests. Therefore, don your best dungarees and oldest skirt and appear at the gym at the right time--that is, if you desire to have your picture go on file as being a member of W. R. A.'s third House- party. at hall sweeping. We know you'll find some way to show your gratitude to Reserve. Bye." When Helio was released, she ran to Sonny and grabbed what she knew to be his weaker arm. "Show me the program card or I'll break it," she cried. "All right, but stop twisting!" Helio saw the blank card. Then she twisted. February 22, 1946 RESERVE RECORD Page '77 Former Exeter Master Speaks at Vespers Dealing with the subject "The Urgency of Cooperation", Mr. Robert F. Cunning- ham, a former master at Phillips Exeter Academy, spoke to Reserve at the Sunday night vesper services. In opening his talk Mr. Cunningham noted a great paradox in the symbolism of the atomic bomb-specifically, that the bomb is both a symbol of terrifying de- struction, and, through the inspiring work of its creators, a symbol of salvation for our lives to come. He illustrated this para- dox with a riddle: "What have the atomic scientists in common with Sinbad the Sailor?" Sinbad, he recalled, once found himself on the back of a huge fish which he had mistaken for an island. Mr. Cunning- ham revealed at least four answers to the riddle, the most important of which was that in both the case of Sinbad's trying to get off the fish and the scientists' develop- ing the bomb, affairs were not as they ap- peared to be: that is, in the case of the atomic bomb, its inventors were competing and cooperating with one another at the same time. "Cooperate," he observed, is one thing to say, and another to do. Many have told us of late that because of this bomb the world is doomed to destruction. If this is so, Mr. Cunningham stated, cooperation must run to all channels of life if we are to ward off such destruction. Thus runs the paradox: for the atomic bomb is indeed a symbol for those who want to survive and achieve. Mr. Cunningham, who, after leaving Exe- ter, was assistant dean at Vanderbilt Uni- versity and, during the war, a member of the United States Navy, is a graduate of Princeton University. He was also a Rhodes scholar and holds a degree from Oxford. "But I thought you said you wanted to be al 213 Heldin Rewzve Friday, February 22 through Sunday, February 24-Houseparty.

Page '78 RESERVE RECORD February 22, 1946 McKinley Splaslrers Win Over Rickerites Last year's state championship swimming team, Canton McKinley, invaded the Re- serve campus last Saturday and captured another victory, winning over the Reserve swimmers, 38-21. The Ricker squad, rid- dled with pinkeye and other illnesses, was not at full strength but showed up fairly well against the powerful foes. Reserve captured only two firsts-the 501- yard freestyle swim and the diving event. Dave Nesbitt took the fifty undisputedly in 26.7 seconds, executing a lightening start and turn to stay well ahead of all contenders throughout the race. In the diving event McKinley entered two skillful performers. The whole competition was close, Dick Rog- ers turning in a consistent record to edge the McKinley diver out by a scant four points. Reserve took second places in the 100-yard breaststroke, the 200-yard free- style and the 100eyard freestyle. In the breaststroke Stu Leeb cut his former time by two seconds to win second honors behind an extremely powerful opponent. Herb Glea- son in the 2001-yard freestyle and Bud Ryan in the 100-yard freestyle both swam fine races against very swift foes to capture second place laurels for Reserve. Harry Hunsicker and Alan Krause touched third for Reserve in the 100-yagd breaststroke and the 100'-yard backstroke respectively. McKinley topped off its victory by win- ning the crucial 150'-yard medley and 200- yard freestyle relays to set the finalscore at 38-21. Wrestlers Win Practice Meetilllith Ba rberton,I-L6-O On Thursday afternoon the Barberton Magics brought their newly organized wrestling team to Reserve for a practice meet and went home the loser by a score of 46-0. This meet was one of the first for the Magics and it served as a real help to their team although they lost every match. Jim Maples started the scoring by deci- sioning his man and from then on until Chuck Critchfield's match at 144 pounds Re- serve won in pins. Wehr, Gordon, Rabe, Ober and Renner pinned their men in that order. "Critch" had one of the strongest men of the Barberton team and won on a decision. Following his match, Cleminshaw, Hoefinghoff and Hartsock won on falls to end the meet. The Barberton team showed plenty of spirit and a great deal of strength and may furnish tough competition,in a few years. P R I N T E R S 2212-I8 Superior Avo. 0 MAln 209I 0 Cleveland. 0. Sullivan Scores 24 in Shady Side Victory, 44-30 The Pioneers made it one loss against one win on their Inter-state League record when they romped over Shady Side Acad- emy at Pittsburgh Saturday by a score of 44 to 30. The Reservites netted the first score of the game on a foul shot by Dave Nicholson, but the Blue and Gold jumped back with a fielder over the Reserve de- fense. That was the only time that the op- position led, or even threatened the lead the Green and White chalked up behind the scoring of Sullivan and Vaught. The first quarter ended with Reserve moving steadily ahead of the Shady Side quintet. The quarter rest found the Re- servites out ahead 10' to 2, and they didn't slow down. Denis Sullivan was the chief factor in running the Reserve score up to 21 to 6 by the half time. After the intermission the home five came back with better shooting eyes. They ral- lied to close the gap in scores by hitting on long shots from their big floor. With Sully again doing most of the scoring, the Green and White stayed with them, losing two points of their half time lead. In the final stanza Wally gave his first five a rest at the four-minute time out, but when Shady Side's Rait scored frequently under the basket against the second team, Wally put the first team back in the fray. The five protected their lead by keeping the ball in their possession and shooting when a man was able to break into the clear under the basket. The Pioneers' zone defense coupled with the shooting arms and eye of Sullivan kept them continually out of danger during the fray. Unable to work the ball through or behind the Reserve five, Shady Side was forced to rely on their ability to shoot over the defense. Reserve-44' Q Shady Side-Q0 I-. 14. T. lr. F. T.

The Reserve score stayed at zero until Ober's match, and from that point on it climbed three points with every match with only one exception. The final score was 19-15. For the first time since the very first meet of the year Jim Maples wrestled at 103 pounds, and even though he put up a really determined battle, his more experienced opponent won. Jerry Austen at 113 pounds lost his match by only two points, one of which was given to his man for riding time. In the next match, Leonard Gordon was pinned in 4:30 by a very strong foe, but despite this, was only one point behind in decision points. The next match offered the hardest battle of the whole meet with Larry Wehr putting up a beautiful fight against a rugged contender. Larry was substitut- ing for Bill Rabe, who had contacted a case of impetigo. The Reserve score finally took a turn for the better, when Buddy Ober decisioned his man with the final points standing 10-2. Jack Renner also put up a strong battle and thus added three more points to the Green and White side of the score. Next at 145 pounds, Haggerty met the mighty Santilla, whose prestige was quick- ly saddened by having Wink throw him around and finally decision him. For his first match of the year, Hobie Cleminshaw at 155 pounds met one of West's best men. After giving a real fight to Gibbons and making him work hard for anything he got, the decision was made against Hobbie by only four points. Roush, as usual, boosted the Reserve score an additional three points by keeping his opponent from getting a single point. In the heavyweight class of 185 pounds Bill Laub neatly overcame his very strong opponent by a large amount of time ad- vantage, four decision points, and a few blood-curdling growls on the side. teams, his lightning-like running made him one of the best halfbacks. With the season not yet over, he has al- ready won enough points for the team to give him his third letter in swimming. First man in the 50'-yard freestyle, he also swims anchor man of the 200-yard medley relay team. By cutting down his time on the turns he has every chance of breaking the school record in the fifty this year. Lastaspring Dave received a varsity letter in track for his performance in the field events. This season he is expected to bol- ster the dash men also. Reserve is proud to congratulate Dave Nesbitt, "R" man, on his excellent perform- ances as one of their varsity performers. Q-N Re, !tE3'E"2V'E R'EQQRQ Week-FM' PW' fVe"'S .luniar Prom, Chapel Speakers and Girls Make Houseparty Year's Outstanding Event Culminate in Sunday Talk Climaxing events at Reserve's first post- war houseparty was a chapel service con- ducted by Dr. Dilworth Lupton, former pastor of Cleveland's First Unitarian Church and columnist, at present, for the Cleveland Press. Opening his address, entitled "Our Re- sponsibility in the New Era", Dr. Lupton stated that we were fortunate to live in great times such as these. True, this is an era of conflict, storm and social unrest, but a glance at the history book will con- firm the fact that these influences are typ- ically the backgrounds for historic eras. The period of the French renaissance, for example, parallels to some extent the dec- ade in which we live. The coming of peace in 1945 bears both a promise and a threat to our future exist- ence. Atomic power, developed during the last months of the war, is capable of de- stroying forty million people in a single night. But the same power, set to peace- possi- time use, has tremendous creative bilities. It is our responsibility to see that this and subsequent discoveries are dedi- cated to human progress and not destruc- tion. lf we fail in this pursuit we face dark ages like those of ancient times, years and even centuries of medieval oppression. Continuing on a more personal basis, Dr. Lupton commented that the people of our generation are better educated and more advanced mentally than were those of his time. Such alertness of mind, he added, will make us capable of the challenge the new era presents. We must, however, be careful not to wear out our bodies before our time, such as the rapid pace of modern times seems to necessitate, "lest our hands be unable to do the tasks our minds direct." In conclusion, the speaker asked that we keep abreast of the times and take an active interest in international affairs, for in that way only can we hope to obtain a new world of peace and prosperity. Recerd Changes Hands The editorial board which retires with this issue of the RECORD takes pleasure in announcing the following organization for the coming' year. The present staff turns over the job of editing the remaining issues to Bill Wallace of the junior class. The po- sition of associate editor will here- after be in the capable hands of Brad Williams. The new managing editor will be Ted Jones. Dave Hollinger surrenders the man- agement of the sports depa1'tment to Dick Rogers. Ronald Bacon will handle the cartooning for the coming term. senses? 11 it t ll 44, Fond Farewells At last the great occasion has come and gone, leaving in its wake many weary-eyed and wistful faces. Friday, with its excitement and shortened classes, finally arrived, and after some hurry they underclassmen received their checks and prepared to leave the campus, which was about to witness scenes which had been absent for over three years. There was much scurrying around in order to get the rooms cleaned and prepared for Score of 82 Wins in TIME Current Affairs Test In the recent TIME Current Affairs Test it was possible to give only three prizes .because so many boys dropped out at the last moment. It is permissible to give only one prize to every 25 contestants. The juniors and seniors comprised one group, and the freshmen and sophomores another. A prize also will be awarded to the top boy in the school. Winner in the first group was Alan Hyde with a score of 79 out of a possible 105. Second in the same class was Jack Melcher with 78, third, John Schaie with 75. Herb Gleason was fourth with 74. Dave Manning led the juniors with 67, followed by Bill Wallace with 63. Bill Lin- forth with 62 and Dick Buchman with 60 followed in that order. Bob Snyder of the Sophs not only led his class and his group but the school as well with a score of 82. He was followed in his form by Alan Krause, to whom will be awarded the freshman-sophomore prize. Among the second-year men Harry Hun- sicker and Dave Hendrix finished in the next places. Jack Anderson led the freshmen with 50 and in second position was Don Mell with 47. Tied for third were Pete Thaw and Jack Burgeson with 45 points. the girls and give last-minute instructions as to schedules and the housing of the juniors and the Cutler Hall prefects. After lunch many were the boys who could be seen carrying sheets, pillow cases, towels, and wash clothes to Cutler to be used by their beloveds who were soon to arrive. At last everything was ready, and newly- washed young gentlemen appeared in front of Cutler to wait-except of course those lucky ones who had been chosen to carry luggage upstairs into the forbidden terri- tory for the house guests of the weekend. The girls began to arrive, and the sun began to shine, both literally and figura- tively. After registering at the desk they disappeared upstairs for an appreciable length of time in most cases and then des- cended to meet their hosts and attend the U. S. swimming and wrestling meets, which started at four o'clock. After the athletic events were over, there was little time until dinner. Because this was slightly longer than expected, the evening program fell a little behind schedule. The chapel service began at about 7:45 and lasted until 8:45, after which everyone went to his respective dorm and donned old clothes. A rally followed over at the bon- fire, which was having a hard time burning ,until the end of the rally. Several cheers were given with an unusual feminine qual- sity mixed in among the straining vocal chords of the male voices.

Reardon History Made Every day of our lives history is made- sometimes it is trivial, at other times, im- portant. Some events we tend soon to for- get while others remain vivid in our mem- ory. Last week history was made at Western Reserve Academy, history that will be re- corded on the pages of many a diary as the most wonderful time in this school year of '46, Yes, Reserve's first postwar houseparty is over. The freshmen and sophomores have returned to the campusg the girls have long been gone-may their memory linger on! Regular schedules have been resumed, and boys are slowly beginning to realize that the week end is over. Work must super- sede fun. Whom have we to thank for this historic week end? The faculty, the seniors, the juniors, the girls? Not any single group! To express our gratitude to any to whom the success of the party is due, we must thank one and all. First, we should thank the faculty for the permission to have the houseparty. One must look a great while before finding a secondary school supporting a project com- parable to the one last week end. Sec- ondly, we should thank all who made the party such a success, the members of the kitchen staff, members of the campus crew, and the chaperones, Mrs. McGill and Mrs. Habel, who managed Cutler Hall during the girls' visit with extraordinary efliciency. In particular, the social committee should be graciously thanked for their cooperation and work in the planning and carrying out of scheduled events. 'Moreover, we wish to thank Miss Housel, who, assisted by Mr. Parker, planned some wonderful meals for the guests. Our great- est thanks should probably be given to Mr. and Mrs. Cleminshaw, who sacrificed much sleep, time and energy for the ultimate suc- cess of the party. For conviviality for so great a number requires infinite attention to details. Thanks also should be extended to Buck WITHOUT RESERVE Blind Date Sitting on the bench station and at the watching the train ap- I shuddered p r o a c h, from the sheer ecstasy of it all. My date, my .4 own little blind date for the Houseparty, was ar- riving on this train. The train stopped. The door opened. A face appeared, crowned by ' an exquisite little red hat. One glance and I . . . knew. "Darling!" I cried and forced my way through the crowd, swooping her into my arms. Our eyes met, and it was as if we two were alone on the Sahara Desert. She parted her tulip lips and softly whis- pered, P "T- xiii! 1, .4 Q1 ! ,eg 7 i i Y . 4: . emily -- "Boss, y'all bettah let me down. Ah got some suitcases to tote." As I loosened my grasp, a small hand tapped me on my shoulder. One glance at those sky blue eyes and I . . . knew. Our eyes met, etc. After going through the whole routine outlined above I found She just wanted to know how to get to the Smorgasborg. After meeting two girls, a middle-aged nun, and the con- ductor in this novel fashion, I finally found Her. She was a dainty little thing about seven feet tall, with two steamer trunks and a tennis racket. "You must be Rueben," She said simply, wrinkling up her double chin. "I ain't his uncle!" I replied cleverly, and I could tell by the way that she rolled on the platform convulsed with laughter that I had made a hit. fAt later times during the Houseparty she would remember this and say "I ain't his uncle!" then scream with laughter.J We didn't see much of each other Friday night because she was to play center in the basketball game the next afternoon, and the coach said he wanted her to get all the sleep she could. But Saturday was wonderful. She took my car and ready change in a friendly little game of billiards, and just to show you she's a sport, she gave me back a quarter to buy her a sundae with. We also went swimming, and she amused herself by standing down at the deep end and holding the boys underwater. Her own coy way of flirting, I suppose. Oh yes, we had fun dancing at the prom wontinued on Page BI, Column 33 Car1', Jim Bell and Jim Biggar from Uni- versity School for helping to make the party a success. Last but not least, we should thank the girls! Naturally without them there would have been no houseparty, no history made. We are indeed glad that they were able to attend our houseparty. We thank them for coming and hope that they enjoyed their visit as much as we enjoyed entertaining them. just ton the 0Qeconcll Though the houseparty has long since ended, that week end will live long in thc memories of most Reservites. Since that is not myuprinciple topic, I will review it only lightly in passing. We of the stronger sex will never quite know exactly what happened in Cutler Hall during those two hectic days, nor will we who reside in Cutler Hall ever know exactly what happened to our rooms! It is safe to say that neither our rooms nor our dorm will soon recover from the blows dealt them by the weaker sex. One whom I should hope to call a friend told me of the visit of the Syrian member of the faculty to Cutler during the siege. It seems that by hook or by crook he made it into the building and at least had the decency to announce his arrival in his native tongue as one in his land does upon entering a harem. You ask him where he picked that up! As I said, I actually have a topic for this week's column-that topic being waste. Some fellows believe that they are wasting their time here-a fact with which the fac- ulty is in some cases inclined to agree. However, the executive committee, the school council, and especially the Scotchman point out that the most waste is in HEAT, LIGHT, and WATER. Fearing that this might turn into an editorial, I will not ask you if your conscience hurts you when the Scotchman or any master-in-charge turns off that extra light that you left burning during study hours or catches you with your radiator on full blast-if a Reserve radiator can go full blast at any time other than six o'clock in the morning-and your window wide open. However, reliable authorities have estimated that up to a thousand dol- lars a year can be saved if we Reservites would only go a little out of our way to turn off that radiator or light or water faucet when we're not using them. Do you realize that if the school used that money which you saved to corner the yo-yo mar- ket, it could make a million dollars- enough for two full scholarships? Or, bringing things closer home, this money would provide the school with an endow- ment of 300,000 raisins, which should sat- isfy everybody-with the possible exception of C. B. Roush. If the 'price of raisins went up, the school could make another fortune which would greatly enhance the everyday life of Joe Reserve so that he could live the remainder of his school days in luxury. The primary objective in this campaign- which doesn't seem to be moving very rap- idly-is to cut down waste, thus cutting down the cost of operating the school. If the plan is successful, maybe scholarships can be given as the machine shop fund gave them. Surely everybody would want to be a part of something which would give schol- arships to guys like Tom Divoll! Keep that in mind, won't you? B. H. W.

Here is typified the degeneration of the class of '46-look at them then, and look at them now. One can tell by that wild, hunted look that these "f'reshies" were from the Athen- aeum. It is interesting to note that W. W. Kirk joined the navy the year they came, and he couldn't even swim. The four rep- resent two political machines and a mistake grim de- parts in in counting ballots.

C." Allchin, "speak no evil to gullible souls" Critchfield, and "do no evil and never get caught" Gar- rigan. See the first one on the right '? He's com- monly known as the "Probation Kid", and goes around singing "Joy to the World". He's had some tough luck. On several long hikes into the North Woods he lost his way and strangely picked up the trail again in Cleveland. However, once his luck changed and he caught a ride in a faculty car while hitch-hiking back. The next is the 'tbody beautiful", the "Whip", or "Eagle". fLets not go to bed, Herb, let's wrestle.l Whenever a gentleman f1'om the South came to the campus, "Wink" would fetch his bull whip and the two would sit all evening looking at the fire through tobacco leaves while picking seeds from cotton. Then they would adjourn to the chapel, where the "terror of the mat" would act as interpre- ter for the guest speaker. Critchf1eld's story Qhe's the frightened child at the far leftl is one of infinite hard- ship and strife. He wanted one thing more than anything else, and at the end of his junior year he got it. However, jealousy and competition smote him this year. One night Mr. Pflaum was telling the C. C, boys a bedtime story. "Well, my gosh, there I was. l'd just plowed Dad's 317,000 limou- sine off' the road, sliced off live or six tele- phone poles, taken the corner out of a farm- house, and broken the car's momentum in a little grove of Redwoods, when Dad called me on the intercar phone from the back seat -JJohn, what are you up to?' Well, heh- heh, the car wasn't hurt a bit-not a scratch even . . ." Critch jumped to his feet and grabbed the speaker's coat lapels: 'fListen here, J. C., if you keep this up, you and I will fight, for both the scepter and the crown!" Making "Four Prong" Chuck treasurer of the class was a bad start financially. This is probably the reason why the class gift will merely be a fireman's sliding pole for North Hall for convenience at breakfast and chapel time. "But, officer, I don't own the car!" Buch- tel paid Reserve to take the one third from the right. When in his sophomore year he discovered "gurls", Buchtel refused to make further payment, but Laurel kept up the good work. Terry lived in the Athen- aeum for weeks before realizing that there was another exit beside the fire escape which led from his room. His f1'eshman year was devoted to food, in any form or shape, preferably late at night. The RECORD wishes to express its grati- tude to the members of the freshman class who offered suggestions for this article. We also hope from now on that the frosh will elect the most likely to succeed, instead of the most likely to be most likely, as the class of '46 did. N .fs Q.

Much to the surprise of all who know him, Sullivan was missing. Later he said that he was more disappointed than anyone at his ab- sence. With one last "Reserve locomotive" the rally broke up and most of its partici- pants entered the gym for the dance, which started thereafter. According to many present, the gym glance was one of the best in a long time with its Common Room full of refresh- ments and.fu1'niture and innumerable in- termissions. Others claimed that the high spot of the evening came at 10:45, when the new octet sang and Mr. Cleary per- formed. Ini any case, it is safe to say that the debut of both was a success. The first piece was a little ditty about the nature of girls. After this introduction the boys sang "Oklahoma", "My Heart Stood Still", "A Policeman's Lot Is Not a Happy One", "Old Man River", and "There, Little Girl, Don't Cry". This last was dramatized in a manner in which only Spud Milligan could do it. Mr. Cleary then approached the piano and in the unique-Cleary manner played a whole medley of popular pieces and one encore. -After intermission the dance proceeded until 12:00 when those re- maining went to the Common Room, where many had been for quite some time. Here could he had apples, coke, pop-corn, and ,frosted doughnuts and the warmth of a fire burning in the large fire-place. At about 12:30 the couples began to break up and say goodnight in order to get some reasonable amount of sleep before the com- ing day. The first day of the much-await- ed houseparty had been a success. Had there not been girls waiting for the boys, and likewise boys waiting for the girls, no one would have gotten up Satur- day morning for breakfast. Despite the delicious eggs and bacon-a special treat from Miss Housel-the boys concentrated on coffee while the girls looked on with bleary-eyed disinterest. It was dishearten- ing to find that the girls were bearing up under the strain better than the boys. Most of them appeared capable of lasting just through the prom, no further. After breakfast the group retired to the Common Room, where they sat on anything more energetic took and everything. The to ping-pong and bridge, while the majority chatted in monosyllables and, tried to snap out of their daze. From the length of time it took the girls to clean their rooms, some boys decided their dates had gone back to bed. About a quarter of ten, however, things began to perk up. Girls with ice skates changed their plans in favor of swimming, since the hockey pond had taken a beating from the preceding week's weather. Low brows and high brows in the Common Room retreated to opposing camps, making use of both the piano and the classical record collection. In the swimming pool five or six couples were exhibiting their skill at both swim- ming and diving. Nesbitt showed how it was done from the high board, while Susie Thomas, Emily Frum, and Patty Kline monopolized the low one. Soon a good- sized crowd was gathered in the gallery to watch "Roger the Lodger" Brady and Stu "I'll take that bet, Dottie" Leeb show off their hand spring and breaststroke ability. Beyond the wall in the gym a vigorous volleyball game was underway. Some of the "weaker sex" turned out to be stars from the teams back home, a fact which made it difiicult for the boys to demonstrate actual skill. There were also rumors of pool games going on upstairs. Despite the misty weather, hikers waltzed out to both Evamere and the dairy farm. Some of the girls were slow to believe that we get up at four every morning to milk the cows. By lunch time everyone had returned to Cutler. By this period the sleep. had been rubbed or washed from everyone's eyes, and the group looked forward to an anxious afternoon of watching the U. S.--Reserve basketball game. Besides, the presence of U. S. men expected at the game promised to make the girls feel more at home. Preparations for the dance started soon after the basketball game. The blue jeans from the night before were hung out of sight, and boys shrugged their shoulders as moths flew out of New Year's Eve tuxedos. Garters, suspenders, and black socks were rare commodities. When Mrs. Hayden, Mr. and Mrs. McGill, Mr. and Mrs. Wallace, Dick Rogers and his date, Martha Bell, had greeted all the cou- ples, the formal dinner was served. At each place the girls found corsages of varied col- ors and flowers, all different and all becom- ing. At this dinner a few ambitious under- classmen did the waiting, much to the relief of the girls, since the trays had been becom- ing steadily heavier. After the chicken was finished and coffee and dessert served, the girls adjourned to the Common Room while the stags and seniors piled the tables and chairs in readiness for the dance. Around the border of the hall the decora- tion committee had hung the flags of the United Nations, and from the ceiling float- ed balloons of all colors. Girls held their ears and boys steeled themselves against the continual popping. When the dining hall was cleared and waxed, when Harold Nelson and his band had arrived and tuned up-then the Junior Prom began. Now, we hate to place any part of the Fiouseparty lower on the list because of the prom's success. Friday night was splen- did beyond all hopes, Saturday morning's sports were enjoyed by all, the athletic events were exciting if not altogether suc- cessful.

BOVVTIE February 28, 1946 R E S E R V E R E C O R D Page 85 Guests Welcomed in Friday Chapel At the Friday evening chapel service, the first general assembly of the houseparty, Mr. Willis E. Dodge, beloved Latin instructor at Reserve, spoke on the subject, "The Two Doors." After welcoming the girls to Reserve in his inimitable, humorous way, Mr. Dodge warned us against becoming mature, so- phisticated adults too soon. We should cling to our youthful likes and tastes as long as possible. However, we ought not to think that religion is entirely a matter for adults. Religion can become a very vital part of youth. It can lift us to such high ideals and show us such a happy, rich way of life that we cannot afford to shut it out of our lives. After these introductory remarks Mr. Dodge turned to the main subject of his talk, "The Two Doors." He told us that from the beginning of our lives to the end countless doors present themselves to us, which we may either open to see and ex- perience what is on the other side, or which we may pass up, never knowing what waits beyond. Two of these Mr. Dodge discussed particularly. ' One door has a very pleasant, fiower- lined path leading to it, which will tempt any man to tread over it. On the other side of this door a fair is held continuously, called Vanity Fair. Here one may buy all sorts of pleasant commodities, such as popu- larity, personality or success, all in ex- change for such valuable qualities as his soul, his self-respect, or his character. Life is very pleasant here at this fairy one goes away much satisfied with what he has gained. y There is another door which we may choose to enter-the gate of wisdom. Lead- ing to this gate is a steep, rocky path, full of stumbling blocks and temptations intend- ed to lure the traveler off the road--the path of knowledge. If one perseveres and sticks to this path and finally enters the gate of wisdom, he will know far more happiness and bliss than had he bought his needs at Vanity Fair.

S. swimming meet, held in the school tank last Friday, was a close and spirited contest, but the home team finally dropped the 200-yard freestyle relay to settle the sco1'e at 36-3-0 in the visitors' favor. Up to this final contest both teams had won three events, Reserve holding a one-point lead. However, the University quartet of strokers in the last relay out- distanced the Reserve four to win the event and the meet. The Green and White got off to a good start when, at the crack of the starting pistol for the 50-yard freestyle, Bud Ryan churned the two laps in fast time to touch first, while U. S. captured' second and third. In the ensuing 100-yard breaststroke U. S. entered two powerful competitors who took first and second place honors while Stu Leeb, stroking a very nice race against stiff competition, placed third. In the 200- yard freestyle Rich Nichols was narrowly touched out for first place while Herb Glea- son won third for Reserve. Glenn Carter, inactive for nearly two- weeks with a knee injury, then swam the 100-yard backstroke in good time to capture this event, his teammate, Alan Krause, winning third. The fifth event, the 100'-yard freestyle, was a very close race in which the U. S. entry edged out Bud Ryan for first place honors, Dave Nesbitt -finishing third. The diving contest was won by Dick Rogers whose consistent score topped those of the Housepurfy tContinued From Page 84, Column 37 derful memories, it's our duty to tell Mr. Dodge frankly that we found the key to fun and enjoyment right smack in the key- hole Saturday night. When we quit at 1:30, we all looked back with a little regret that we couldn't stay a little longerg but no one felt that the price of the evening was too great for the reward. Even the faculty had a good time trad- ing dances and joking about Mr. Moos' antlers. At the beginning of the last dance all the balloons were broken in a single roar. Harold Nelson satisfied every- one with his variety of selections. After the dance the seniors hauled out their dun- garees and set up the dining hall for break- fast. Upstairs all-night "bull sessions" had started in the girls'-rooms. Sunday morning? I feel the same way you do, fella. And oh!-the achin' backs! It was feared that Sunday morning would be an anti-climax. Instead, the couples found valuable time to sit and reminisce about the whole week-end. Reserve took its girls to church again, ate dinner with them once more, and sat for just one more happy hour in the Common Room before goodbyes. There were two paths leading away from .Cutler for each of the juniors and seniors after they said goodbye. One led to the infirmary, and the other led to bed. But .they both ended in the same spot-study hall Sunday night. U. S. men, who won second and third. In the 150-yard medley relay Glenn Carter es- tablished a good lead on his two backstroke laps. Stu Leeb held the advantage well against the powerful U. S. breaststroker who almost caught up, and Dick Rogers, anchorman, pulled ahead on the freestyle leg of the race to win the event undis- putedly for the Green and White. However, the Clevelanders entered a fast freestyle relay team which outdistanced the home four to make the score 36-30 in favor of U. S. This was a tough meet for the Ricker squad to lose, but throughout the season and this meet the tankers showed plenty of competitive spirit and determination. Each meet has shown improvement in condition and training, and their performance against a powerful U.S. aggregation was indeed commendable. 50-YARD l"l!l'IESTYl.l'If Ryan Ilhi. won: ivJIl1ll'I' ll'. syzumifisis 'rn in K- .

Nevertheless, the Preppers had a scare thrown into them in the closing min- but with their superior able to control the ball ahead. With four min- utes of the game, height they were enough to remain utes to go, the Green and White closed the gap to 32-28, but they were unable to take command. The home team was in the lead only in the opening minutes of the game, on a fielder by Denis Sullivan. From that time the Maroon and Black went ahead on foul tosses by Brad Jones and a fielder by Tup- per Hale. Reserve held the visitors down to shots from far out on the floor during the first quarter, but was unable to work the ball through the tight defense that U. S. offered. George Vaught took the ball off the boards to hold their offense to these shots. In the second period it was the same story, Hale, Bell and Co. scoring ten mark- ers on set long shots. After the intermission the Pioneers came back. Dave Hollinger and Dave Nicholson drove through the defense to close the score to 30 to 24 by the end of the quarter. By this time the 'Green and White had tight- ened up their defense, but the height that U. S. held over them began to show itself on rebounds. The Reservites out-scored the University team fourteen to nine points in this period. Following up their third quarter rally. the Pioneers pressed their opposition still further in the final eight minutes. With Tom Allchin continually breaking up the Maroon and Black offense and Dave Hol- linger going through to score, the lead was cut down fast. At the four-minute official time-out the Reservites were only four Vaught jumps Ericlfson in U. S. game Bill Laub wresfles I-Mick Carr Wrestlers Victorious Over University Mutmen The Green and White wrestlers wrote a perfect ending to an otherwise dismal sea- son when they beat a favored U. S. team, 18-14. This victory was the first major one for the wrestlers, who have contended despite had luck and ill health all season but who had the extra fight needed to win -the biggest and most important match of the winter. Though he was pinned in the second pe- riod, Dave Albrecht gave the U. S. team a preview of the fight that it could expect throughout the rest of the afternoon. Dave held Tom Balch, the undefeated star of U. S., throughout the first period and held his own during the third, but Balch, an exceptionally fine freshman grappler, had too much skill to be overcome by Dave's iight. However, the next. four Reserve men built up a big lead by decisioning their opponents. Jerry Austen made the first three points by beating Crawford of U. S. Jerry built up a big lead in the first two periods and defended it in the third to win. points behind, but a series of fouls made in fighting the U.S. height advantage under their own basket gave the visitors the ad- vantage they needed to stay in the lead in spite of their riddled defense. The Pio- neers were able to score in the final minutes, but they were unable to overcome the gap made by the lead U. S. had held throughout the game plus their unerring foul shots. Going way out in front in the first pe- riods, the Green and White took the pre- liminary game by the impressive score of 30 to 13. Behind the good shooting of the Cory brothers Reserve led 15-2 at the half, and then coasted to their victory. This gave the sophomores a season record of five wins against four defeats.

Moore, however, was down through- out the whole match and was far behind on time advantage. Bill Rabe at 128 pounds ran up six points to lead his man, Callaghan. Though his opponent made the first points and seemed to equal every point Bill could make, the Reservite had plenty of stamina for the closing moments and came from behind to win. The match at 134 pounds wasn't even close as Buddy Ober dragged his man, Dave Andrews, all over the mat for the eight minutes to make the score 12.-5. Jack Renner, though beaten, showed Wally Young, the U. S. captain, a real con- test and at times threatened to take the lead. Renner really put up a strong fight against a rugged opponent. Had Wink Haggerty's match lasted a few seconds longer, Reserve would have had two more points and Wink another fall to his credit. As it was, Wink, wrestling his last match for Reserve, turned in the kind of performance that has made him one of the steady heroes of the Green and White and rolled up plenty of points to lick Staff Andrews of U. S. The match at 156 pounds was the match that decided the day for Reserve. Had Hobie Cleminshaw been pinned by the highly favored Smythe of U. S., the visitors would have had a chance to tie the score. Hobie fought a heroic battle and held Smythe to a decision to cinch. the meet. Also working in his last match after four years of successful grappling, Jim Roush gave the audience its usual show of per- fect wrestling as he decisioned Biggar of U. S. Roush's graduation will be a ter- rific blow to the team, but Jim deserves the appreciative thanks of the school for four years of fine competition on the mat. Bill Laub ended the match by holding Carr, who had a highly rated reputation, to a decision. Carr took an early lead but at the end Laub was on the offensive and was threatening to take the lead away. get Rs, Prof. Clarence H. Having Prof. Haring Visits Campus,- Speaks to History Classes The Academy was fortunate to have as its campus guest during the past week a distinguished visitor in the person of Mr. Clarence H. Haring, professor of Latin 'American History and Economics at Har- vard University. Besides teaching his his- tory course at the University, Mr. Haring is housemaster of Dunster House, a dormi- tory named after Harvard's first president. In his Thursday address to the school Mr. Haring outlined briefly the political situations in various Central and South American countries. Explaining the rea- sons behind recent South American revo- lutions, the speaker pointed to the condi- tions under which the peoples of the South- ern Hemisphere were unified. Ever since the invasion of the continent by the Spanish conquistadors, the illiterate, semi-civilized Indian tribes of South America have been exploited by ambitious foreigners and powerful political groups. The isolated In- dian nations of Pizarro's time had no other course than to submit to their Spanish masters. Of course, the Spanish influence was not wholly a bad one. The more vir- tuous Spaniards devoted themselves to the construction of many churches and missions which led, in part, to education for the natives. In the years that followed these first ex- plorations, Spanish and Portugese noble- men, lured by tales of vast riches to be had in the continent, made this land their home. They dominated the docile Indians and built their citadels by slave labor. They gave little attention to spreading Old World knowledge among the native tribes and cared little for their welfare. Perhaps they felt that "a little learning is a bad thing" and that education might promote wontinuod on Pan 88, Column 39 Roush Captures State Wrestling Championship Haggerty Takes Second Place, Ober and Wehr Gain thirds The Academy matmen tied for fifth place in the Greater Cleveland Invitational Wres- tling Tournament with Roush, Haggerty, Ober and Wehr starring. gg L a s t year's 1 5 5 - p o u n d ch amp J i m Roush climaxed two undefeated seasons by tak- ing the cham- pionship at 165 pounds.

Leavenworth Academy Graduate Meets Tragic End in Cleveland Dr. Philip C. Leavenworth, a graduate of the class of '38, was killed on Monday night, February 25, when his car missed a turn in the Cuyahoga flats area of Cleve- land and plunged into the river at the end of West Third Street. Dr. Leavenworth, assistant resident physician at MacDonald House, a branch of University Hospitals, was returning from a routine call at a West Side home, when, in his haste to meet an appointment at the hospital, he took a short cut toward the East Side which led through the flats. Unfamiliar in the sec- tion, he failed to make a turn onto a ramp which would have led to safety and crashed through a barrier into the river. g While a student at Reserve, Philip Leav- enworth was active in the music depart- ment as well as in other regular activities. He received letters in football, basketball, and track. Dr. Leavenworth was the first of three Leavenworth brothers to attend Reserve. After graduating from college, Dr. Leavenworth studied medicine at West- ern Reserve University in Cleveland. Sub- sequent to his graduation, he become asso- ciated with University Hospitals. He had been house physician there for eight months when the tragedy occurred. A few weeks prior to his death Dr. Leavenworth finished the design of a sur- gical instrument which will be used in the field of obstetrics. Mr. Louis Tepper, the director of the Academy machine shop, had worked in close co-operation with the young doctor on the instrument. Mr. Tepper fash- ioned the device in the shop, acting on the plans of the designer. A group of doctors at MacDonald House in Cleveland have re- ceived permission to patent this instrument, Page 88 , RESERVE REcoR'D March 7, 1946 THE RESERVE RECORD Published every Thursday during the school year by the students of Western Reserve Academy, Hudson, Ohio ' Joel B.

Reardon A Job Well Done The RECORD bids fond farewell to the departing senior members of the staff, and wishes them all the success in the world. Theirs has been a fine job, and they deserve none but the highest praise. Ever since the issue of February 8, 1945, came off the presses bearing the names of Spud Milligan, Dan Collister, Herb Gleason, Bob Dewey and Dave Hollinger high up on the mast- head, the RECORD has been a relentless taskmaster to an amount of hard, conscien- tious work which is to be envied in any pre- paratory school newspaper staff. All one needs is a retrospective glance at such issues as the commencement edition, June 3, 1945, or at the houseparty issue of last week to be convinced of the credit due these boys. Nearly every lower-class staff member can testify to the fact that he has been pushed and prodded constantly to get his articles done and in, with deadlines looming up close at hand, by the editors at times when they themselves were sufficiently tied up in their own tasks. This should be enough to prove clearly that the editors were conscientious to the point where they worried not merely over their own work, but' the work of other staff members to an equal degree. Being a RECORD staff member is prob- ably as thankless a job as any to be found, and in carrying through their tasks so dili- gently, the seniors have demonstrated true school spirit-knowing all the while that their reward would in all probability con- sist of a few simple words besidei their pictures in the ANNUAL. Actually, never- theless, it is quite probable that this ex- perience will prove invaluable to these boys in their later life. We are sure that the reputation for good work which they have made for themselves will be even more of an aid to them in the future. . With our hats off to this year's seniors on the RECORD, we roll up Our SleeV9S and prepare to plunge into another good season, with the past year as an ever pres- ent example and impetus. So long, fel- lows! LUI 'I' .il U U 'I' ii E 53 E ii V E A Word of Friendly Advice The triennial torture ..,5,u has arrived once more, A. and soon after reading ' f' ' this you and all other " model Reservites will I submit to the experi- I ences commonly known i R ' as examinations. These 2 have a tendency to un- fid if J: nerve some of the more .r K - p highly-strung members Q'-,, ii of the student body. For the general health Y i"ll','3 i and peace of mind of -- the masses we append here a few sugges- tions which may come in handy to those who intend to make some meager prepara- tions on the eve of the assault. The English examinations as composed by Gus, Jiggs, Slapsy, C. T. J., et al will be a pretty little gambol over the "insights" and "overtones" of the major work under con- sideration during the term. During this excursion the gentlemen will expect you to scamper gleefully over some standard ob- jective test with a romp through a College Entrance Examination or two. It's a merry sort of morning, if you can manage to take it in your stride. What have we to look forward to in his- tory? One can depend on a sheaf of fools- cap about twice the size of completed blue- books. In the American history test, though it will run through the administra- tion of- Truman, one is really not expected to get beyond the war of 1812. In Modern European history one should prepare him- self through the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648 to be moderately sure of impressing the examiner. Complete predictions are not possible in history, as our Syrian represen- tative may prove to be a dark horse. The sciences? Well, there is no need for more than a modicum of preparation here. Use plenty of footnotes, make elaborate drawings fthe details are of minor conse- quencej and give back some of the in- structor's humor. This technique is always good for a 3 minus. Mathematics and languages may be gen- erally grouped together as putz courses, and no one with any idea of moderation spends much of his valuable time during examina- tion week upon them. The interchange of a plus for a minus sign is considered by our faculty to be of no great importance and our language masters agree with the more modern theory among classicists that an accusative or a genitive may be used interchangeably. The only real difficulty to an otherwise pleasant examination week is the formid- able obstacle of the industrial arts exam- ination. Our advice, freely given in this instance, is this: when you come out of your corner for this test, lead with the left and counter with the right! just ton the CRecondl For quite some time one question has been continually in the minds of many- "How does a Reservite spend a week-end permit?" We decided that the best way to find the answer to that question was to trail a few average "students", dispatch- ing friends to trace some of those whom we could not cover, to find out exactly how "Joe Reserve" bides his time on his very valuable week-end. Oddly enough, practic- ally all of them fall into a few select groups, The first of the groups contains those who go to Cleveland or Twinsburg for a "rip-roaring" time. They can easily be distinguished from the others on Monday morning, when they arrive at breakfast with satchels under their eyes and that "I'll never do it again" look on their bright, smiling faces. Turning to the opposite extreme we find those boys who spend the week-end quietly at home with their parents-just like the handbook says they should-and with their Monday's assignments. You can find the names of these boys on the Honor Roll. There are also the Reserve married set -Allchin, Hollinger, Ernstene, and the lot -who spend a quiet week-end with their girls. Some week-ends they catch an occa- sional glimpse of their parents. And last but not least there is the streetcar "fiend" who-armed with pillow, box lunch, streetcar pass, and the latest issue of TRUE COMICS-climbs aboard the nearest public conveyance and rides from East Cleveland to West Cleveland and back again all week-end. This is Reserve! B. H. W. Prof. Huring Speaks . . . tcontinuod From Page 87, Column IJ a desire for liberty among the descendants of the Aztecs. In any case, this situation prevails to the present day and this illiter- acy among Indians and mestezos is the chief factor responsible for the the back- ward state of some of the South American republics. The most progressive countries of South America, the speaker continued, are the "white" countries, districts having little or no Indian population. Notable among these are Uraguay and Paraguay, where high levels of government and education prevail. Paraguay, like Bolivia, Argen- tina, and many other South American countries, has a dictatorial system of admin- istration. The chief objection we Ameri- cans of the Northern Hemisphere can raise against this type of rule is that, though it may be progressive, it fails to make provisions for the future and seeks to per- petuate itself in ofiice, often by disreput- able means. Thus, we see our neighbors to the south torn in revolution and dominated by power factions. We look forward to the day when this land of opportunity will practice gov- ernment by representation. March'1,1946 RESERVE RECORD Page 89 Mr. McKinley Publishes Second Book, "Harriet" The Viking Press of New York has just published Harriett, a children's book, writ- ten by Charles McKinley, Jr. of the Eng- lish department of Western Reserve Acad- emy and illustrated by William Pene du Bois, author and illustrator of several popu- lar children's books, and a member of a well-known family of artists. The book is Mr. McKinley's second, it was preceded by A Voyage to the British, Isles, which was printed privately in 1940. Mr. McKinley wrote Harriett while teach- ing at Kenyon College during the summer of 1943. In the fall of that year he came to the Academy. The story is about a horse named Harriett, "and about Mr. Ed- ward, Esquire", with whom she went to live when she retired. "Mention is also made of Henry and Harold, two very gentle lions who live across from the British Museum, and of Gregory, Harriett's brother, of whom she was very proud fand rightly sol, for he was one of the guards at the King's Palace." The story takes place in London, where Harriett delivers hats and dresses and bit- ter orange marmalade to the customers of Sedgerow, Ltd. in her cart, "neatly painted just the right shade of red." It is a very amusing and delightful book, every now and then poking a little fun at well-known places and institutions of London. It has very much the same sort of charm as do A. A. Milne's children's books, and, perhaps most important of all, it has an appeal to persons of all ages. Former Masters to Resume Teaching Duties Next Fall This coming September Reserve will wel- come back two former masters, Mr. E. Mark Worthen and Mr. William Wright Kirk, who left W. R. A. in January and July of 1944, respectively, to enter the Navy. Mr. Worthen was a teacher of history, English, Latin and algebra at our school from 1938 until the time of his departure in 1944. He is now a lieutenant commander in the Navy and is stationed on Guam at the head of the t'Rate and General Training School" there. The school has 500 pupils and 38 teachers, its object being to train Navy personnel to qualify for such ratings as yeomen and storekeepers. It also teaches some high school and college courses and administers "General Training 'Pests". Mr. Worthen is married and has one child. Mr. William Wright Kirk, now on ter- minal leave, held the rank of lieutenant, senior grade, in the Navy. He visited our campus Sunday, February 24, staying with the Dodges during his brief sojourn. At present, Mr. Kirk is teaching French and Spanish at Dickinson College. , --1.

Although the score shows a definite superiority of the home five, the running scores were many times close, causing the play to be- come fast and spirited, especially in the third quarter. During the first period the defenses of both teams were tight, and very little scor- ing was accomplished. At the sound of the buzzer the score stood 13 Reserve, 10 Cran- brook. .

R. A. in true form. At 103 pounds, Wehr, wrestling that weight for the first time this year, won over Garfield and West Tech, but was de- cisioned in the semi-finals by Balch of U. S. Wehr then decisioned Shaker and John Adams to win his consolation matches and a third place at 103 pounds. Jerry Austin was decisioned by Etterman of West Tech at 112 pounds in his first match, but did not qualify for consolations. At 120 Gordon was decisioned by John Adams, but he too had no chance to qualify for consolations as Adams did not place in the highest two teams. Although Ober was decisioned by Stack of Adams in his first match, he wrestled consolations when Stack went on to the finals. Wrestling two matches in the after- noon and the final consolations in the eve- ning, Roy decisioned West High, Collin- wood, and Shaker in that order to place third in the city at 127 pounds. At 133 pounds Renner won his first match but lost by a referee's decision to Adams in the quarter finals. Since both boys dis- played great skill in blocking escapes, no points were made. However, the match was awarded to Adams for aggressiveness. Bill Rabe, wrestling 138 although he nor- mally fought at 127, put on a spectacular performance. He made Reserve's first score by pinning his opponent, but then lost by a fall to the boy who later became champ at the weight. In his first consolation match Bill was well ahead in points until the last ten seconds of his match, when his man managed to escape and pin him. Hobie Cleminshaw, wrestling at 155 pounds, was decisioned in his first match by Rhodes, and he too did not qualify for consolation matches since Rhodes was not first or second at that weight. Sweinhart of Garfield, who decisioned Bill Laub in his first match this year, repeated the performance by edging Laub out again. Sweinhart went on to capture fourth place at 185, but Lamb did not qualify for conso- lations. swishing the nets repeatedly to set the half score at 25-19, the Green and White's favor. The Reserve quintet turned on the heat in the third stanza of the fray to win a nine-point advantage. The Hollinger, All- chin, Vaught, Nicholson, Sullivan combina- tion was replaced for a few minutes by Williams, Cleminshaw, Howard, Doyle and Mosher, this being the first and only change of t-he Reserve lineup. Nicholson and Allchin's spirit under the baskets kept the ball in our possession and enabled Sullivan, Vaught, and Hollinger to exercise their shooting arms. The fourth quarter found the visiting team vainly trying to narrow the ten-point margin, which was kept intact by steady and careful play on Reserve's part. When the thirty-two minutes were fully up, Re- serve led by a 44-34 final score. The second team played Stow before the main varsity game, the F. Cory, C. Cory, Daily, P. Williams, Graham combination piling up 39 counters to the 27 meshed by the visitors. This was the sixth victory for the reserves, who have had a very successful season, losing four by extremely close mar- gins. - This was the final game of this year's basketball season, which has been a con- tinually improving one since the Start. The team has had a tough schedule and should be congratulated for its fight, perseverance, and sportsmanship. W. R. A.-44 N Cranbrook-34 fl. F. T. G. F. T.

In the first game the Cory brothers, Con- nors, Hank Williams and Mosher took a huge lead right at the start of the game and increased it in the last few minutes to win, 45-27. Connors and F. Cory led the Greens who ploughed under Dick Rogers, Bill Cleminshaw, Nobil, Heath Oliver, Ober and Peterson. The second game went to the Whites after the best fight of the afternoon. The Whites took a 9-3 lead in the first period but the Greens evened it up and went ahead at the half, 21-12. The Whites however came back and won the game in the last period, 2.7-25. The winners were Roberts, Fritz, Rabe, Perciball and Gebhardt. Ryan, Breckenridge, Lindsay, Keitzer and Buch- man comprised the Green team. The third game was a runaway for the Greens, 29-8. The Greens were Gordon, Russell, Boone, Wilbur Smith and Wilson. The five Whites comprised Lee Haggerty, McCombe, Sheldon, Krause and Stansbury. Greens Sweep Both Junior Cage Contestsp 24-22, 27-17 On Monday afternoon the Green and White winter sports contests got under way with the junior basketball, consisting of two games in order to enable more boys to play. The first fray seemed fairly evenly matched, the Whites-Betz, Bronfen, Sharp, Lewis, and Swanston-holding a 12-9 lead over G. Austen, Siddall, Jarboe, Jae, and Wood for the Greens at the half. However in the second half, the Greens, spearheaded by Jae's shooting and Austen's speed, forged ahead and successfully held the White scoring to a minimum to sport a scant but winning two-point lead, the final score standing 24-22 in the Greens' favor. High point honors went to Jae, who meshed 14 counters for the Greens. The second battle displayed plenty of ,hard and spirited play, the Green power- house of Post, J. Brown, Fletcher, Wingard, and H. Walker leading the fighting White aggregation-Fuzy, Mell, E. Dewey, Sim- mons, and J. Nicholson--almost throughout the tilt. Fletcher's shooting, combined with the fight of Brown and Wingard, chalked up a total of 27 counters for the Greens, while sharpshooters Fuzy, Mell and Nicholson for the Whites could account for only 17 points. Although the Greens' skill and power carried off both contests, plenty of en- thusiasm and competitive spirit was shown by both teams, and the games were fun both to watch and to play. GN .9 nssmvt RIECURD VOLUME XXII No 22 Mr. McGill Attends School Convention in Chicago During Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last week Mr. McGill has been visiting Chi- cago, attending the annual meeting of The Private Schools Association of the Middle West, the first gathering for two years. The items of discussion were the future curricular changes necessary in private sec- ondary schools, the enlarging emphases in schools on international morality and sound spiritual values, and some of the more im- mediate problems such as: The member school's relationship to The North Central Association, the trend of tuition charges and operating expenses, and the probable course of teachers' salaries. Mr. McGill gave to the convention a sum- mary of the study he has been making among member schools on the trend of tui- tion charges during the last eight years, the status of retirement plans, and what schools are doing and expect to do next year in the direction of "cost of living" payments to masters and staff members. Mr. McGill was elected a member of the Executive Committee of the Association for the coming school year. Senior Prom Highlights Spring Social Program Highlighted by the Senior Prom, the 1946 spring social program at Reserve has been announced by Mr. Cleminshaw, chairman of the Social Committee. Scheduled first is a regular council dance on Saturday, April 13, for which date cards are due April 8. Following this, a second dance will fall sometime between April 13 and June 8, the exact date yet to be announced. And finally, On the evening of June 8, the eventful Sen- ior Prom will take place. Dr. Blake Crider Conducts Social Hygiene Discussions Last Sunday brought Dr. Blake Crider, Professor of Psychology at Fenn College in Cleveland, back to Re-serve's campus to dis- cuss social hygiene with the members of the senior and junior classes. Both last year and this year Dr. Crider, who also is the psychologist for St. Luke's Hospital, con- ducted discussions with the seniors, but this year he has met with the juniors and will soon meet with the sophomores. In these discussions, which are a part of Reserve's ,program of well-rounded educa- tion, Dr. Crider clears up any expressed doubts, fears, or apprehensions concerning social problems and sends his audiences away with a clear mind and the ability to meet and cope with the life ahead. ADE- HUDSON. OHIO, APRIL 4. I946 Academy Receives X-Ray Equipment Gift of Benefactor .lohn S. Mcfombe Since the Academy became a boys' school exclusively in 1925, the school's enrollment has steadily increased, and with each year's growth of the student body the need for a larger and more complete school plant be- comes more apparent. Keeping step with the ever-growing en- rollment, the Academy raised a new build- ing on its campus in 1935, Hobart House, the infirmary. This modern and efficient hospital has been a source of pride to the school ever since. Today, through the generosity of a bene- factor, this institution is better equipped than ever. During December of 1944, the Academy's physician, Dr. Kurt Weidenthal, was contacted by the late John S. McCombe, father of John McCombe, Jr. of the class of 1947, who suggested that the school pur- chase an X-Ray unit at his expense. Grati- fied by Mr. McCombe's offer, Dr. Weiden- thal ordered the equipment from the Gen- eral Electric Company. However, the order could not be filled immediately because of wartime shortages of electrical apparatus. Six weeks ago, with peacetime production once more in effect, parts of the X-Ray unit began to arrive. A room in the infirmary originally designed for the new equipment was made ready and a crew of workmen busied themselves with the installation of the mechanism and the furnishings of the dark room. Today these preparations are virtually completed and the X-Ray unit will soon be in operation. The equipment consists of a 200-milliam- pere transformer, a Centralinear Control board, and a manually operated Combina- tion X-Ray and Fluoroscopy. The X-Ray table is equipped with a recent improve- ment known as the Bucky Signal system, which makes possible more detailed radio- graphs. The table is also unique in that it can be made to assume almost any position -vertical, horizontal or angular. The unit features full-length fluoroscopy and thus will facilitate complete examinations of the heart and lungs and any other part of the body that may need attention. Besides its use in physical examination and in the observation of injuries, the ma- chine may serve in another and more re- markable capacity. Scientists have learned to distinguish the age of bones through the aid of the X-Ray. The bones of an indi- vidual sixteen years old are not necessarily in a sixteen-year state of maturity. A boy of fifteen, shorter than average, might have a bone development of only thirteen years, while again, a taller-than-average boy of fifteen might have a maturity of bone struc- ture common to seventeen-year-olds. Thus, the doctor will be able to determine whether a boy of slight stature can expect to reach a greater height and, within reasonable ac- curacy, he will be able to estimate just how much taller the individual may grow.

Reardon ln Retrospect With the conclusion of the winter term examinations, concluded but not forgotten, we tore the last leaf off the calendar that marked the snowy season. Better than two- thirds of the school year have passed-and so quickly. This is the last lap. Before passing on to predictions for the coming term, we might hesitate for a mo- ment to reminisce on the term just ended. On the whole, the winter term always seems to be a dreary one by comparison with the fall or spring sessions. This, of course, is quite understandable and is due primarily to the weather conditions. It never snows, it never blows-like it does in Hudson, save perhaps in the frozen north of Alaska. Seriously, though, the two months from Christmas 'til March fifteenth have been Yet what may well be termed "successful". it was more than that this year. The mo- and was notony of "digging in" to our studies working through heavy assignments broken by a series of very enjoyable social events-highlighted, of course, by the resurrection of Reserve's much-publicized houseparty, an event long to'be remem- bered. Speaking of athletics, we cannot commend the past season as one of the best in our history. But it was a good season. Our teams played well against strong oppon- ents and many times games which should have been easily decided in favor of our opponents stood in the balance. The term's last athletic meets 'were the most thrilling we've seen in many a year and it was a great satisfaction for the Pio- neers to turn back a vaunted wrestling team representing the school's foremost rival. Best of all, there was the renewal of Inter- state League competition in winter sports, in the course of which our basketball team outpointed two of its three rivals from neighboring states. ' What are the prospects for this spring term? Athletically-that's a job for the sports writer. Scholastically-a job for the individual. Let's pull together to make this term the year's best. Commencement is the goal! Let's not slacken speed in the last lap! LU I 'I' il U U 'l' ii E E3 E ii V E A Glance Into the Future With the great ad- - f vances being made in A iv, s c i e n c e nowadays, I often wonder what Re- " serve will be like in ten 1 1 or fifteen years. Let us I . pass through a fourth- 1 , A dimensional time fold 42? I ' and visit our beloved 5 74 K school in the happy ,q year of 1958. ' Q As we walk down 3 ,N if-v,if College Street, under ' " " " , " which several subway " lines now operate, the first structure we no- tice is the remodeled Fine Arts Building. Inside, the strains of a radiomatic organ accompany the dancing class, now taught only the Reserve hop, the jitterbug, and the atomic Conga. On the site of the old Seymour Hall stands the famous See More Building, con- structed entirely of tin foil. Ascending to the door of an escalator, we meet the faith- ful servant of the school, Mr. Kitzmiller, who now teaches Esperanto. fAfter the Linguo-Revolution of '51 German, among other outmoded languages, was abolished as a credit subject.l The first door on the left inside the building opens into the new woodshop, operated entirely by atomic ma- chinery, And who is that feeble old man trying to run the atomic band saw? Why, it looks like Mr. Moos! He just can't get used to these durned new contraptions. Incidently, all the teachers now carry the new atomic tenth-distributors. Thus, if a boy misses a class, the teacher need only press the bright purple button of a little box on his wrist, and three atomic tenths will be posted in neon lights on the giant electric board near the entrance. The chapel has been completely altered since 1946. At the time Mr. C. V. Critch- field became headmaster, the morning ser- vices were held on the greensward. The library was also converted, becoming a combination dance fioor and lounge. The chapel bell has given way to the strains of "Beat Me Daddy, Eight to. the Bar". No effort is required to travel on this campus. Moving walks, consisting of long plastic belts, carry people anywhere within a radius of one mile. V Employing one, we now arrive at Culver's Cabin Qformally North Hallj, containing twenty suites, each with a television set, bath and shower, dumb-waiter, and intercommunication radi- atrons. The beds, of course, are gossa- mertronic, and each suite has a completely equipped kitchenette. Supervised by Mr. D. Collister fcertificate of 19465 and his wife Heliotrope, this building is always kept in perfect UD order. Sometimes, how- ever, Danny goes on a spree. Because of the Earthquake of '51, Carroll Cutler House is no longer standing. Nobody uat ton the UQ:-:condl Once, not too recently, when stuck for a topic on which to discuss and enlighten all you budding little gentlemen, I hap- pened to hit upon the absolutely original, sheer-stroke-of-genius idea of getting the opinion of the average man-about-Reserve concerning this column. Strapping on my skates, I proceeded from dorm to dorm searching for a friend. To my pitiful plea of "How do YOU like 'Just for the Rec- ord'?" I got: "Is it in the BLADE ?" from Tiny Millerg "A big smile" from Jack Simonsg "Did you wake me up just to ask that?" from Reserve's JOY boyg "What was that again?" from Fungus, "Oh so-" from I-Iowie Walkerg And "Best column of that name in the RECORD!" from Johnny Jarboe, who owes me a nickle. With encouragement like that, I guess I'll have to go on scribbling this column till I'm graduated or drafted, whichever comes first. seems to care, since it was far too anti- quated anyway, but it appears there is one individual, a Mr. Parker, who sobs every night over the ruins. Nor has the Cutler Hall dining room sur- vived the ages. Ever since the introduction of food-pills no use for any eating estab- lishment can be found. A rocket-car hanger now covers the entire lower level of the building, and pinball and slot machines adorn the floor. What a surprise we get when visiting the Athenaeum! The walls and floors are built entirely of glass, so that Mr. Reardon, who is now really up in years and can't get around much any more, is able to see all the boys' putzing at a glance. And finally we come to the combination gym and infirmary. So many boys now try to get out of athletics with medical excuses that the idea arose to build the two estab- lishments together, for convenience. Dur- ing a game we hear Bob Hope remark on the gym's size when he comments, "I don't know if the gym's large or not, but in order to inte1'view coaches of the opposing teams, I had to take a five-hour rocket ride from one end to the other!" Suddenly we are confronted with a hor- rible thought: How are we to get back to normal 1946? Ahh! There's a drum. Let's beat it! B. A. E.

Kirshner, pastor of the East Cleveland Congregational Church, spoke at vespers Sunday evening, March 9. Mr. Kirshner, a graduate of the theological seminary of Yale University, was formerly minister of the United 'Congregational Church of Conneaut, Ohio, before he went to Cleveland, where he has been for the past eight years. Mr. Kirshner discussed in most compre- hensible terms the various ways in which the Christian religion can help young peo- ple. He began by stating that just as it is wrong for adults to say that the worth of religion is confined solely to youth, so is it most erroneous for youth to believe that re- ligion has no place in their lives but is in- tended only for the older generation. Christianity has many aspects within it which should prove interesting and helpful to youth in varied ways. We all at one time or another find ourselves faced with certain grave adventures ' which we must pass through. Christianity offers to us a way of meeting each of these adventures, the soundness of which we can determine for ourselves. First, we must all find our posi- tion in society. Christianity can certainly lend us a helping hand here if we will take the Bible's advice and strive not to make ourselves the center of the universe but always to search for chances to do things for others. Second, in choosing our life work, the Bible tells us to discover in what ways we can best serve mankind, not by what method we can earn the biggest pile of money. Third, in making our homes we have a beautiful example set in the Christian con- ception of love and marriage. Finally, in taking our places in the world, what better rule of life can we follow than the beati- tudes, and what finer paragon of human living can we aspire to than Christ? Use Present Opportunity Hudson Pastor's Theme At the Vesper Service, March 31, Mr. Burns offered the student body a new phil- osophy that may aid them to enjoy and benefit by the last few months of the 1946 school year. In the case of the seniors these were represented as the last twenty- four hours. "Too many times," Mr. Burns said, "peo- ple praise the past twenty-four hours, gripe about the present twenty-four hours, and look forward to the coming twenty-four hours." To illustrate this he referred to some of his soldier companions who, While on the Hawaiian Islands, praised Dry Gulch, Texas, griping about their present situation, and optimistically awaiting the future. He continued by stating that these same sol- diers were probably back in Dry Gulch, Texas, complaining of thelheat and praising Hawaii. Thus, he" urgedi us :to enjoy and to realize the opportunities in the present. f- 4- n Qc , , ,r Q X6 sl Ff 4, my Q .

A Hudson resident, Mr. Welles was chair- man of the Hudson district of the 125th anniversary and memorial campaign until Dr. Hayden's illness, when he was asked to assist in the field work and solicitations. He was prominent in this connection with the campaign, visiting from Toledo and Cin- cinnati to Pittsburgh and New York in its behalf until he left on his recent trip. Mr. Welles, whose sons, Carter and "Toots", graduated from Reserve in '27 and '32, first traveled south to the Gulf Coast and then west through New Orleans toward New Mexico. In a card received last week from the Grand Canyon country in Arizona, Mr. Welles said that the trip had been very pleasant because of the warm weather and beautiful scenery he had been enjoying. The Welles plan to return late in April, motoring back to Hudson by a more north- ern route. Mr. McKinley to Autograph 'Harriett' at Halle Bros. Charles McKinley, Jr., member of the de- partment of English at the Academy and author of a new book for children, will be the guest of the Halle Brothers' Book Shop in Cleveland on Saturday, April 13, between 2:30 and 4:00 in the afternoon. Mr. Mc- Kinley's new book was published by the Viking Press, Inc. of New York on March 18. Illustrations were done by William Pene du Bois. "Harriett," a fantasy for children from eight to eighty, has received complimentary reviews in the past two weeks in the book review sections of the New York Times, the New York Herald Tribune, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and, other papers. The book has been well received and is now on sale in all book stores. In Hudson it is being handled by Mr. LaRue Piercy at the Times Book Store.

Ed Dewey began the afternoon's events by decisioning John Jarboe but soon after- ward when Green Jim Maples took a for- feit to make the score 5-3, the fireworks began. Jake Brown, who wrestled all year at 113 pounds, started his match with 121-pound White Fred Meyer and was supposed to lose quickly but at the end of the eight minutes there was no doubt about the winner. Jake came out easily on top to make the score 8-3. Bruce Rogers, another regular wrestler, came through with a nice fight to beat Green Larry Siddall at 128 pounds. Frank Austen decisively won over Dave Sheldon in one of the best matches of the afternoon. Frank led all the way and scored six points to raise the Green total to 11 points above the White 6. The biggest surprise of the afternoon came in the 139-pound class. Freshman Dan Wingard, who played lightweight bas- ketball all year, took Roy Hagedorn for an eight-minute ride to chalk up an an easy win. Dan will be well worth watching when next year's wrestling season rolls around. With the score 14-6, Chuck Critchfield pinned his roommate, Allchin, in the first period. The Whites then took two straight matches with Bob Dewey beating Les Wil- son at 156 and Dick Kaylor beating Terry Garrigan at 166. This last match decided the day because the Whites needed a pin to win but failed to get it. In the final match, Phil Hartsock, after going behind in the first few minutes, came up and pinned Paul Shepard to make the final score 24-12. ' Green Seniors Victors In Swimming Contests With a final tally of 31-26 the junior Whites edged out the junior Greens-Sim- mons, Sharp, and Swanston getting firsts. The Greens captured the 75-yard freestyle when Conger won. In the 100'-yard free- style relay the Green team of Brassert, Staley, Post and Conger shortened the gap in the score by finishing far ahead of the Whites. However, the junior White team, composed of Swanston, Sharp, and White, assured victory by taking the 75-yard med- ley relay by a close margin. The intermediate Whites ploughed under the Greens with Renner, Holtcamp, and Krause taking firsts respectively in the 50'- yard freestyle, breaststroke, and backstroke. Krause also got a first in the' 75'-yard free- style. The Greens came back into the fight in the 100-yard freestyle with Breckenridge far in front touching first and Mosher second. In the '75-yard medley relay the White team of Oliver, Holtcamp and Ren- nler ran far ahead of the Greens, who fought back to win in the 100-yard freestyle with Smith, Chuck Cory, Mosher, and Brecken- ridge. The final score was 38-28, in favor of the Whites. In the senior division of the meet the Whites were conquered by a score of 45-211, when the fast swimming of Laub, Callahan and Collister won firsts for the Greens. Hollinger in the 50'-yard breaststroke touched before McDonald and Wingard of the Greens. Collister, McDonald, and How- ard took the 150-yard medley relay away from the Whites. Seven points were added to the Whites' score when Vaught, Hollin- ger, Roush, and Joslyn barely won the 200- yard freestyle relay. The diving events presented many excel- lent and funny dives. For the juniors Post took first, Albrecht second, and Bronfen third. Frost dived best, Rabe placed, and Smith took a third for the intermediates, and for the seniors Critchfield won first place, Joslyn second place, and Roush third place.

In the first game a strong Green team improved after a slow start to edge out the Whites, 43-34. Behind the accurate shooting of Doyle, Howard, Brad Williams, Critch- field and Daily, the Greens managed, after a bad first half, to tie the game at the end of the third quarter and surge ahead to win in the final period. The White team was Joslyn, Ayers, Dewey, John Miller, and Graham. The second game was perhaps the closest of the three, the lead changing hands four times. Again it was the Greens who came out victorious in the end, this time by a score of 24-18. The winning aggregation was Clarke, Garrigan, Laub, Hoefinghoeff, Wingard, and Callahan. The White team boasted- of such stars as Roush, Kramer, Haggerty, Shepard, and Barnard. The third game, also nip and tuck all the way, found the Greens ahead at the finish, 2.7-2.2. Headed by Jim Miller's fifteen points and Skip Newell's fifteen fouls, the thunder- ing Green combine of Linforth, Gulick, Hartsock, Miller, and Newell pulled ahead after intermission to win over a White team of P. M. Jones, Soulen, Katker, Robertson, and Bukovnik. SPORT COATS FOR SPRING i l 1 I 315.95 l Your own choice in an all-wool i sport coat for Spring.

RESER E RECO D VOLUME xx..-Nm 23 X -1 HUDSUN, OHIO, APRIL II, l946 Winter Athletic Season Is Climaxed by Election Ol Roush, Hollinger and Nesbitt as Captains As has been the custom at Reserve for a long time, the captains of the athletic teams are elected at the close of the season in order that qualities of leadership and sportsmanship may have a chance to show themselves in the performance of a con- testant, thus giving his teammates the op- portunity of justly honoring him as their captain. After the U. S. games this winter the boys eligible for varsity letters in the winter sports of basketball, wrestling and swimming made their selections. Chosen as the leader of the basketball quintet was Dave Hollinger, while the wrestlers chose Jim Roush as their chief and the swim- ming squad chose Dave Nesbitt. Blond Dave Hollinger, shooting from the left forward spot on the varsity five this year, has continually displayed winning spirit and skill to the definite advantage of the team. Improving with every en- counter throughout the year, Dave topped off his Reserve basketball career with his superlative performance in the U. S. game in which he continually took the fight to the opposition both on defense and offense, scoring an impressive 15 counters for the home team. The honor of being elected Try Reservites Reserve has been the scene of consider- able test-taking in the last two weeks. On Saturday, March 30, twenty-nine boys came with their parents from various points in Ohio to take Reserve's Entrance Examina- tions. In the afternoon of the same day the junior class indicated in the Kuder Preference Records where their main vo- cational interests lie. Saturday, April 6, saw forty-four boys and girls from Hudson and neighboring towns invade our campus and, along with our senior class, wrack their brains for three hours in the morning and three hours in the afternoon on the College Board Examinations. captain is indeed a well deserved one for Dave and the school appreciates his efforts and accomplishments. The wrestling squad made an excellent selection when it chose as its caiptain Jim Roush, state champion 165-pound grappler who has been undefeated in his sport for the past two years. A letterman in wrestling for four successful seasons, Jim has dis- played again and again his championship abilities on the mat, relying on speed and an excellent sense of balance in addition to strength and knowledge of wrestling to overcome many powerful opponents. One of the best athletes in the senior class, Jim has shown plenty of ability in both football and track and is wholly deserving of his wrestling captaincy. The swimming team's choice, Dave Nes- bitt, was another worthy selection, Dave having been a loyal member of the squad for the past four years and an outstanding performer in the freestyle dashes during fcontinuod on Page 97, Column 25 Dr. Joseph Hromadka, Professor of Apologetics and Christian Ethics at Princeton Theological Seminary, will be a guest of the school this coming week-end. On his last visit here in 1943 he made the following state- ment: "If England's and America's plans agree with Russia's, her claims will be modest. If they do not agree, she will strive to control central Europe, in order to protect herself from future attacks." This has proved so correct that anything he says on this visit should be given the deepest thought. In addition to his teaching, the speaker is an emissary of his native Czechoslovakian government. In ad- dition to his Sunday night talk he will make an address on Saturday night at 8:00. All who wish to attend are cordially invited to do so. First Dance of Term To be Held Saturday Saturday, April 13, will see the first Council dance of the year. Date cards have been filled out and on Saturday evening the boys are intending to get out the "lit- tle black books" to inscribe any likely tele- phone numbers. The stags should have a particularly good time this week for 85 young ladies have accepted the invitations to attend. The hours of intermission and the bounds for the dance will be the same as for those previously held.

Reardon In Prospect The term now beginning is perhaps the most important of the entire year. This term carries us over the top or lets us down miserably. There is something unfortunate about this since the welcome sunshine, the singing birds, and blue skies are not con- ducive to work. There is a natural ten- dency on the part of all to wish to let down with the better part of the school year be- hind them and no visible encouragement or reason to work. Generally, we, as a school body, manage to succeed in our endeavors despite the handicaps, although naturally some of us fail to do so. From past records it is safe to predict that Reserve will once more make the grade, led on by the masters who each year stand by and see another group of pupils leaving the school for greater ad- vancement elsewhere. In the coming term we will undoubtedly do well in athletics as we always do. This spring there will be meets with the Inter- state League teams and a chance to try our skills against others of our own class. This schedule presents a better prospect than usual since we have had no real inducement to see what we can do before this time. We have a good year's record to uphold and many others to try to break. We are con- fident that this term will not be one of which we are ashamed. The coming term will not be too dull. The Council and the Social Committee have a program planned that will keep us all from wearing out from over-work. The program will be highlighted by the Senior Prom, the crowning event of a very event- ful year. The overall prospect of this, the final term of the school year, is an excellent one in all respects. Socially, athletically and scholastically, Reserve presents a pleasant outlook and a promise of good things to come. In conclusion, let every Reservite re- member that success is a matter of indi- vidual concern. A boy makes his own marks. True, he may 'get assistance' in 'his homework from his roommate."But, when the final exams roll around,'he'has to rely on his own brain power for the answers. WITHOUT RESERVE It has been pointed 1- I out by a columnist i 3. with even more readers ' ' than I flf I get one " more this week I will I I have an even dozenj - that the month of i e March was a month of 2 " many Weeks. We have E celebrated Smile Week, Vg '2 .Nl 3 .4. Prunes Week. In fact V "" every institution except ' W.R.A. has come -. hh" across with a Week. "' In lieu of the fact that our masters do not seem to be especially week-minded fnote to typesetter-exercise carei, and since I do not want our pupils to feel that we are lack- ing in ideas, I place the following Weeks for the month of April on the altar of fu- tility, but nevertheless recommend them most heartily to the attention of our mas- ters: ill Conservation of Mental Energy Week. One can readily see that such a week would involve the giving up of such prac- tices as exams, heavy assignments, and all the other ,procedures to use up the mental energy of our student body. And before some disillusioned and weary master asks, "What Mental Energy?" we hasten to: C25 CO-ED WEEK. Now there's a WEEK! The idea might even be extended to a month and tried out every month except June, July and August. Girls with their hair blowing in the breeze of the campus, girls sitting next to us in Latin and geometry classes, lending inspiration to our efforts. I do not absolutely declare that such an idea would increase the learning per student, but I can say that it would make the little he does manage to obtain a lot more enjoyable. Besides which we could get in enough prac- ticing with our whistling to compete with the local swains during summer vacation. Another thoughtful and progressive sug- gestion is Q3i: Invite Your Favorite Girl Week. During this Week our inmates could invite their current slick chicks to attend classes with them for a week. Ah, girls! Girls with their hair blowing in the campus breeze, girls sitting beside me .... Emerg- ing from pleasant daydreams I have yet another week: Q41 World Peace and Good Neighbor Week. It has been proved to the satisfaction of everyone that in order to preserve World Peace, people everywhere must understand each other. Half the world must know how the other half lives. The masculine membership of this Academy represents one-half of the world. The other half . . . girls. My idea is simply this: To invite representatives of the other half to attend classes with us for a week. Girls with their hair blowing in the campus breeze, girls sitting beside one . . . An obsession? Magnificent obsession! I have some other ideas for Weeks. They're good ones, too. And they all add up to . . . GIRLS. D. H. juat ton the CRecondl Spring has come at last to the little city with the highest water tower in the state. With spring, of course, come those inevi- table thoughts of love. On desks, chairs, trees and benches appear little chiseled signs of affection such as: "Munchy loves Mary" and "Betty, Betty, Betty". Evi- dently someone chiseled too much on the rock and bench belonging to the senior class! Be it spring, fall, or the middle of winter, neither wind nor rain, nor snow can stop a Sunday inspection lDon't groan, fellas, I'm going to help youj. As you all know, this super-duper inspection is just another one of the cruel methods employed by those in power around here to persecute us! With their immaculate white gloves and their iiashlights these fiends-no offense, sir- travel from room to room under the pre- tense of inspecting with the sole purpose of doling out tenths to their occupants. Herein I should like to add a few hints and suggestions to the long lists I am sure most of you have already compiled. Naturally merely cleaning up your room is too easy-so let .me suggest that you sweep the dirt under your rug until the rug has reached a height of six inches from the floor or sweep it into a corner and stand on it while being inspected. Novel as these methods are, you will be surprised at their effectiveness. Likewise to save dusting mirrors, picture frames, and other objects having narrow dimensions, try applying white shoe polish to the surfaces. Thus, when the inspector places his glove on the surface, he will not only not find any dust, he will get a retreaded glove. For hiding those forbidden objects try putting them on a two by four-inch hole cut in your copy of "Prose and Poetry" or on a string sus- pended from your window a la Ray Mil- land. By all means do not hang clothes on your radio aerial! If you underclassmen will follow these suggestions, I guarantee that you won't get more than one inspection tenth a week. B. H.

The awards were made by the coaches of the respective sports-Mr. Wal- lace, basketballg Mr. Ellis, wrestlingg and Mr. Ricker, swimming. Before the regular athletic awards were made, Teb, acting as master of ceremonies, called up Stu Leeb to give him a well-deserved cheerleading R for his fine work in organizing rallies and promoting better school spirit. A let- ter was also awarded to Terry Garrigan for his faithful job in organizing and scheduling the much-enjoyed Sunday morn- ing volleyball tournament. These boys de- serve a lot of credit for their efforts and results. Those who won Rs in wrestling were: Dave Albrecht and Larry Wehr, 103 poundsg Jerry Austin, 112 poundsg Leonard Gordon, 120 poundsg Bill Rabe, 128 poundsg Roy Ober, 133 poundsg Jack Renner, 138 Boris Goldowski Gives Piano Recital and lecture The Hudson WonIen's Club in cooperation with Western Reserve Academy presented last Sunday afternoon the well-known pian- ist and opera authority, Boris Goldowski. Mr. Goldowski is the head of the opera department of the New England Conserva- tory of Music in Boston. He is associated with the Metropolitan Opera broadcasts on Saturday afternoons and is in charge of the opera during the Tanglewood Festival at Lenox, Massachusetts. Recently he has been in Cleveland lecturing on the operas soon to be presented there by the Metro- politan. The recital consisted solely of the music of Frederic Chopin. Mr. Goldowski used the selections mainly to illustrate a lecture on the development of the composer and his works. Played were the Adagio from the Concerto in F Minor, two etudes, the Ballade in F Minor, three preludes, the Fan- tasie in F Minor, a Mazurka, and as the finale the popular Polanaise Major. This last work was rendered with excep- the concert in A Flat tional spirit and vitality, and as a whole was very pleasing. While not a perfectionist in his art, Mr. Goldowski plays with feeling and with an excellent sense of timing and rhythm. 4 - .e THE KORNER at woon co.

Seniors Note Carefully Enlistments were opened April 1 in the fall class of the Navy's V-5 Naval Aviation program, according to Naval Officer Pro- curement, 947 Book Building, Detroit 216. Seniors enlisting in the program will choose their own college and enter upon their own initiative after being accepted by the Navy. Training will include four col- lege semesters, 15 months of flight training, and flight duty with the Fleet. High school seniors 17 through 19176 who will graduate in time to enter college in the fall are eligible. Applicants will be called to Detroit at government expense to take mental and physical examinations. School principals and faculty advisors have full information concerning the V-5 program and have a supply of the ques- tionnaires to be used in applying for exam- ination. ex 5' fd Q 9 -'x , "Na-a-He's trying to persuade the dean with sad music" Reservites to Receive Vocational Guidance A t As the last weeks of school draw near, Reserve's seniors come to the realization that commencement will bring to a close what may be called their elementary educa- tion-elementary from the standpoint that high school courses do not prepare a stu- dent for a specialized vocation but merely give him an introduction to many studies, each of which may be a basic essential for a certain profession. To help seniors who at graduation are still undecided as to what vocation their talents best suit them, the Academy invites to its campus each year eminent vocational advisers who consider the advantages of various professions in group discussions. Heretofore, these talks have been limited to members of the senior class and have occurred on Sunday mornings at Pierce House. This year, however, these assem- blies will be open to the entire student body and will be held in the Chapel. Four such meetings will take place this term. Mr. Dan Tyler Moore will be the speaker at the initial discussion to be held Wed- nesday, April 17. Mr. Moore, President of the Middle East Company, former Assistant Director of Commerce and Chief of the Ohio Division of Securities, will speak on the advantages of Government service. Boys interested in such work will have an opportunity to talk with the speaker at lunch. The subsequent assemblies will concern opportunities in Journalism, Agriculture, Architecture and City Planning. New School Clocks Aid Punctuality On returning from spring vacation, all Reservites found several new clocks in Sey- mour Hall. One of them, single faced, is located in study hall.: another, double faced, in the main corridor, and a third, which has not yet been installed but will be in the near future, in the south end of the basement. The new clocks were not put into opera- .tion for the first few days due to the lack of an essential part, which Mr. Tilt was unable to obtain until last Thursday. All of the clocks are operated by the Inaster clock, which is found in the up- stairs hallway beside the headmaster's oflice. , A little more than a year ago the school ordered these clocks from the International Business Machine Co. The war, however, caused a shortage of clocks, and Reserve was not able to secure them until this spring. The students will be greatly aided by the clock in study hall because they may now make a time schedule for their home- work. Moreover, they will no longer be Iforced to twist and squirm in their seats to see the chapel clock as has been pre- viously necessary. Page 98 RESERVE RECORD x .April 11, 1946 Baseball Hopes Bolstered by Three Returning lettermen The advent of spring and warmer f?J weather on the Reserve Campus brought also the spring sports, among them the fast, interesting game of baseball. To date the weather has been about 50 per cent good and 50 per cent otherwise, but Teb and Mr. Habel have had an opportunity to work out with the squad and look over the material. Batting and fielding drills in addition to plenty of running and throwing have pro- duced many stiff muscles and sore joints, but the candidates are now rounding into -game form. The squad has three returning lettermen, Denis Sullivan, who was first string twir- ler last season, has already showed signs of attaining even higher pitching heights this year. Dave Nicholson, last year's var- sity second baseman, returns to that spot and to the plate where his excellent batting eye will add to the offensive power of the team. Another infielder, Tom Allchin, who covered the third sack last spring, has been working out with the pitchers and at his old position. Tom's steady batting was a valuable asset to the team last year, and he hopes to continue his good work. Many members of last year's squad are competing strongly for the nine positions on the team. Chuck Critchfield and Paul Wingard have been practicing with the pitchers behind the plate and are fast ac- quiring knowledge of this important spot. The pitching staff is being supplemented by the hurling "P M" Jones. At first base southpaws Dave Hollinger and Rich Nichols have been catching the put-out throws from the infielders. Roy Ober is fielding at sec- ond with Nick and promises a fight for that position. At shortstop, Dick Rogers has been chasing grounders and learning the requirements of that busy spot. Pat Mo- sher, a sophomore, has showed excellent form at third base and is rapidly acquiring a knowledge of the "hot" corner. The big question mark this year is the outfield with no returning men for those three positions. Competition is keen and fast with Don Kramer, Art Doyle, "Gibby" Grahm, John Miller, Jim Miller, Sonny Betz and Bob Dewey showing promise at snagging fly balls. b On the whole the squad is inexperienced but is rounding into shape, and the coaches are rapidly putting together the Reserve nine which will play a 15-game schedule starting this Saturday with Northfield. Track Success Rests With Three Veterans, New Material This year it is safe to say that the small- est number of lettermen since the introduc- tion of the sport are returning to the track squad. Coaches Mickel and Reynolds are counting on three boys, Nesbitt, Has- brouck and Howard, to form the backbone of the team. To these can be added the members of last year's squad who did not receive letters, boys like Joslyn, Philips and Roush, who missed by only a few points and who can be counted on for good per- formances, and those young aspirants in their first year on the team. Russell, Nesbitt and Collister, all return- ing for another season this year, should team with Daily, Breckenridge, Stansbury and Manning to bring home some tallies in the 100 and 220'-yard dashes and the half- mile relay. In the 440+ and the mile relay Terry Gar- rigan and Hobie Cleminshaw should prove their worth. Nobil may also show up well in this event as well as in the speedier ones. Corky Philips and Leonard Gordon can be counted on to do some good distance running under the green and white colors, providing Gordon's arches hold up. Vastly improving since last year, Bill Lindsay and Frank Austen should take some hurdling honors in every meet. Daily and Wehr will add strength to this event. After two years of competition, Doug Hasbrouck and Jim Roush should really click in the pole vault. Combining with Wehr and Joslyn, they should make this an all Reserve event. Things look equally encouraging in the discus throw, where Nat Howard will at- tempt to extend his undefeated streak through another season. Nesbitt and Con- nors have the ability to give him strong support. In the shot put Howard, Joslyn and Connors look good in that order. High jumping berths will probably go to Bud Ryan and Hank Williams with any number of ,potentialities backing them up. These two boys join with Joslyn to provide the strength in the broad jump. Early practices have disclosed an abun- dance of undiscovered talent on the part of the younger hopefuls. Also look for the lettermen and members of last year's teams to feature in new events. Howard, Philips and others have demonstrated unexploited talents. life-Saving Course Given At Academy Swimming Pool For the past three weeks a Life Saving Course has been held in the Academy swim- ming pool. Reserve was chosen some time ago as the location of the course because a number of Reservites and a larger number of Hudson people were interested and be- cause Reserve has the largest pool in this district. This useful ,trainingpis sponsored by the Red Cross and taught by Mr. Ray- mond Miller of the Akron Chapter. Anyone over sixteen years of age who can swim one hundred yards may enter. The entire course covers a seventeen-hour period, dur- ing which time participants meet with Mr. Miller each Wednesday night from 7:30 to 9:30. Six weeks of training remain since some persons entered later than others. The participants, about twenty-five in all, are composed for the most part of Re- servites and Hudson residents. Netmen Struggle to Keep Record: Enter Akron league With three lettermen returning from last year's undefeated team, tennis should pro- duce another banner season for Reserve this year. Besides the three lettermen-- Clark, Rabe and Austen-Coach Culver has advanced several members of last year's ,B squad to bolsterthe team. As it stands now, the varsity includes, beside the three lettermen, Vaught, McCombe, Rea, Ayers, and Jake Brown. There is a very good chance that several of the more promis- ing players of this year's B squad, under the able direction of Mr. Cleminshaw, will work their way up into the ranks of the varsity as the season progresses. For the first time, this year Reserve will be a member of the Greater Akron High School League and will play a regu- lar schedule with the other four members -Buchtel, Central, Cuyahoga Falls and West. Besides these meets the tennis schedule includes meets with University School and Shaker Heights. Sometime in the middle of May the team will journey to Detroit to take part in the .Interstate League meet, which this year is being held at Cranbrook. The full sched- ule appears elsewhere in this issue. Mr. Culver said that last year's team was the best he ever coached. It's going to take a lot of good tennis to equal the ,fine record established by that 1945 squad. But, provided we have good weather, the team, with some practice under their belts, should come through in good style and add another chapter to Reserve's record. I - -- -. NEED A NEW SUIT?

APRIL us. 1946 Government Services Offer Rapid Advancement to Youth The vocational program got under way Wednesday noon when Mr. Dan Tyler Moore, president of the Middle East Com- pany, visited the campus. Mr. Moore, for- mer Assistant Director of Commerce and head of the Ohio Division of Securities, was Chief of Counter Intelligence in the Middle East during the war. He spoke to us on Government Service. The government, he said, is "an economy within an economy," because it employs people from all walks of life. It is a very flexible organization, changing its work and procedure constantly. Boys who have just finished college ex- pect the world to welcome them with open arms. Unfortunately, however, this is not so. The first ten years out of college are the most disappointing in a man's life, the speaker continued. There are more able men with the proper training than there are jobs available. One can't expect to step into an important position in a corporation, especially since these are held for the most part by middle-aged men who have built up protective walls around themselves and their jobs. Therefore, the place of occupation to pick is the one where the older man hasn't such safety in his position. In the Federal Government each department is variable, iniiuenced by the changes from outside, so that no one person has a. permanent hold on his job. Choose a job where the top people are younger men, for that shows a chance for quicker advancement. Govern- ment service meets this requirement per- fectly. Science, business, politics, and adminis- tration all merge in the government. There, the businessman becomes a politician. Each man gets a little bit of everything by work- ing in the government. Dr. Hayden 's Condition Before introducing the guest speak- er at last Sunday's vesper service, Mr. Waring made a brief report to the assembly on Dr. Hayden's condition. All were pleased to hear that the headmaster has been improving stead- ily and now has partially regained P the use of his left side. Recently, in fact, Dr. Hayden's state of health has permitted him to take short walks unassisted. This improvement has been what may well be termed substantial. We all look forward to the day when the headmaster will be up and around once more. , Chapel Services to Observe Reserve's l20th Anniversary Scene of Founders' Day Celebration Founders' Day, Friday, April 26, marks the one hundred and twentieth anniversary of the founding of our school. On April 26, 1826, a hardy group of Hudson citi- zens gathered at the meeting house facing the Village Green and offered prayers and sang hymns. Then, led by David Hudson and Caleb Pitkin, president of the trustees, the procession followed the Aurora Road to the new campus. On the site of Seymour Hall Mr. Pitkin gave an oration in Latin. And following this, the corner-stone of his- toric Middle College was laid by Augustus Baldwin, "with the assistance of officers and brethren of Hudson Lodge, F. and A. M.. No. 683' This, briefiy, is an account of the events that took place on the Founders' Day, as they are given in Mrs. Kitzmiller's book, "One Hundred Years of Western Reserve." The anniversary of this occasion will be ob- served Friday, April 26, at a Chapel service conducted by Mr. Dodge. This will be a fit- ting and simple ceremony and-much to our chagrin-will involve no Latin oration. At the close of the meeting the entire school will adjourn to a spot near the entrance of the Chapel, where, followed by a few words by a member of the Board of Trustees, a tree' will be planted by two representatives of the student body. The planting of the tree is most appropriate, in that April 26- besides being Founders' Day-is Arbor Day. The ceremony will be concluded with the singing of the Alma Mater and the benedic- tion by the Reverend Mr. Burns. In connection with the Founders' Day program, Mr. Roundy will speak in the Tuesday Chapel service on President Carrol Cutler and on Thursday Mr. Jones will Work for Better World: Dr. Hromadlca's Theme Last Sunday the chapel talk was given by Dr. Joseph Hromadka, professor at Prince- ton Theological Seminary. In his address he stated that 1946, '47, '48 and '49 will be the most critical years in mankind's history. The peace of the world depends on the future generation, and it is our duty to be prepared for the great tasks ahead. He also stated that the winning of the peace will be a much more difficult victory than was the winning of the war. Without faith we will be able to solve nothing. For example, he told the story of St. Paul as an illustration of true faith. To do anything we must first ask ourselves, "What is my mission in life?" We should to the best of our ability devote our lives to the service of God, and to those ideals for which He stands. Paul loved his fellow- meng let us do the same. In conclusion Dr. Hromadka stated that our inner selves would not be oppressed, but if our con- science did die, we would disintegrate both spiritually and morally. During his stay on the campus the visitor attended many history classes at which he made interesting predictions as to the fu- ture in terms of world conditions. At his Saturday evening address in the chapel, which was limited in attendance due to the Council dance scheduled for the same night, Dr. Hromadka considered the Rus- sian situation almost exclusively. While the situation presents many tense moments in the discussions of the UNO, Dr. Hromadka saw much hope for the triumph of decency and common sense in the coming years. During his stay in Hudson the visitor was a guest of Pierce House. As on his last visit in 1943 he was accompanied by his daughter. Dr. Hromadka's sojourn was greatly enjoyed and it is hoped that he will return soon again. speak on Homer Sluss, "Doc" Frew and Dean Wood. Easter Sunday It has been decided by vote of the Executive Committee that all boys who stay at the school over Easter will go to church in the village. Sun- day leaves will start at 9 a. m. If for any reason you must catch an early train or bus, see Mr. Culver about your problem. The boys who take Sunday leaves must return by 6 p. m. Those who take week-ends must be back at the regular time for church Sundays: that is 7:15 p. m. for freshmen and sopho- mores and 8 p. m. for all others.

Reardon Good Taste "Cleanliness, courtesy, good taste, sim- plicity, and genuine informality are quali- ties of our daily life at Reserve, and all that we do and say should reflect this tone and atmosphere."-Handbook, page 23. This clause constitutes one of the most important school creeds, a creed which, when carried out, has made Reserve a fine example of good living. This fact has been reiterated many times by the headmaster, faculty and various chapel speakers. Cer- tainly every true Reservite agrees with, and makes an effort to live up to, this creed- and ordinarily does it with much success. However it often occurs that boys have an inclination to "let off steam"-very natural for people of our age, to say the least. The school has no real objection to this sort of action, so long as it is kept within the limits of good sense and decency. Most of us know where these limits arise and have it within our control to keep with- in themg but some of us could definitely stand improvement in our daily conduct on the campus and within the dormitory. During the spring term we should pay spe- cial attention to our conduct outside of the buildings-that is to say, on the lawns and walks. Loud and disturbing noises, unneces- sary loitering, and general misconduct around the campus should definitely be re- duced. It might also be worth noting that re- cently several merit-scores have been head- ing in the wrong direction as a result of disturbance in the dormitory halls during the evenings. The masters and prefects do not appreciate having to give out these tenths, and certainly we do not enjoy get- ting them. Less noise and misconduct would do much in raising these scores and adding to the school's general harmony. Let's strive to maintain the fine record which we have made in the past-especially this term, when our conduct is the most obvious and important.

At that time of extreme man- power shortages they found it impossible to hire anybody for the pay. So they de- cided to get an animal for the job. They would have bought an elephant, but the crew was one hundred per cent Democrat and refused to work with any Republican. Our faithful Mr. Tepper searched high and low for a suitable beast. He finally found one at the Smiling Scotchman's, who was even willing to give a good trade-in price on the Academy's truck. fThat was before he had seen itll After some bargain- ing, during which he agreed to throw in an old toothbrush, a one-toothed comb, and a pack of cigarettes found in the bushes near the main highway, Mr. Tepper bought a beautiful slate-grey mule. Thus Harry came to the campus of beau- tiful W. R. A. He was a competent little mule who never got into trouble-just like the average Reservite. He particularly liked to deliver bricks from the rear of the Chapel to the victims of the Senior Disci- pline Committee. He could be a stubborn mule if he wanted to be. Indeed, one day Harry was trudg- ing along College Street. All of a sudden he began to kick and he dashed onto Senior Campus. tHe carried bricks for the next two weeksj What could be the cause of all this? Behind him, zigzagging down the street at break-neck speed, was coming the Yellow Mariah! From that time on, when- ever he saw Mr. Pilaum's Fantasie, he gave it a kick. fThis is as good a way as any for J. C. to explain the dents in the fen- ders.l As the years wore on, Harry became the mother of a little mule. fAnything can happen at Reserve!J It is now commonly believed that it was he who turned on the fire extinguisher on the third floor of Cutler. At least that's what I understood. Somebody said that the one who did it was a dumb ass. Harry was a mule, and, as mules go, Harry went. So now he is in heaven, pull- ing all the little angels in his cart, now painted just the right shade of Hudson-sky grey. Moral: Don't ever bring a mule to Re- serve, he might show up the students. J. D. G. wat ton the CR:-:cond With a lump on my head, I'm present to tell you that spring is 'really here. In the brief revival of that age-old game of con- cealing sledge hammers, or reasonable fac- similes, in handkerchiefs and tapping so- called friends on their unprotected crania, a goodly portion of the school-for the dubious crime of stepping outside the safety of fair Cutler's portals-have received their "punishment", However, an edict from those in authority has supposedly stopped all this. Yes, spring is ofiicially here fthrough the courtesy of the executive com- mitteej. It's surprising that they didn't ring a bell so that we would know when spring had arrived, since they ring a bell to announce almost everything else of any significance that occurs on campus. "They" happens to represent the indefinite number of human beings of all shapes, sizes and sexes who set the bells to ringing, one person being unable to ring all the bells by himself. My research staff has informed me that in the course of an ordinary day 45 bells ring in a Reservite's ears, unless he is a heavy sleep- er. Such a condition may drown out two or three. This computation does not include the bells which emanate from the chapel tower where there are 156 tolls every day. I presume that everyone in attendance here realizes that it is the "New-old Bell" which tolls the hour and not the "Old-new Bell" which has done the job in years past. To shut off this infernal racket, the in- genius geniuses of Reserve have tried every- thing from sledge hammers to scotch' tape including chloroforming assorted members of the "Bell-Pressers Union, Local 106". Of all methods attempted the only sure-fire way to stop the clamor has been to award a FREE DAY. fls this too subtle?j Bar- ring this there is no hope, bells will con- tinue to ring until Reserve ceases to exist. fPerish the thought.J Take heart. We are not the only ones who have been driven partially batty by bells.

The receiving line formed at 7:30, and soon thereafter dancing began. The music provided by the three gentlemen of swing, Hagedorn, Soulen and Collins, proved to be on a par with the best Reserve has had to offer all year. Paul Russell's rendition of "I Can't Begin to Tell You" gave the dance the spice of an added attraction. Just before intermission eight more of Reserveis talented vocalists, the octet, as- sisted by Miss Tinker on the piano, sang "Oklahoma", "The Bells of St. Mary's", and a popular arrangement of "Old Black Joe". Next came intermission with refreshments of coke and doughnuts for those who wished to remain inside.

Varsity Basketball and Swimming letters Awarded During Exam Week Due to an unfortunate accident in the process of setting up the paper last week the complete article on the winter sports awards did not appear in that issue. The following is the completion of that story, giving the names of the competitors who received the Academy R in basketball and swimming. Coach Wallace presented basketball let- ters to six boys who made up a team which greatly improved during the season and put up a very commendable iight against a highly rated U. S. five. Forwards receiving letters were Allchin, Austin and Captain Dave Hollingerg center George Vaughtg and guards Denis Sullivan and Dave Nicholson. Angus Fletcher received his manager's let- ter for his work with the basketball squad. Mr. Larry Ricker, somewhat of a stranger to most of the school, made an immediate hit with his stories and friendly manner and awarded the members of his team their R's in recognitions of their ef- forts, which produced a 500 average for the season, all the defeats being suffered with very close scores. Freestylers awarded let- ters were Bud Ryan, Captain Dave Nesbitt, Rich Nichols and Herb Gleasong breast- strokers-Stu Leeb and Harry Hunsickerg backstroker Glenn Carterg and diver Dick P R I N T E R S 22l2-I8 Sunarior Ave. 0 MAln 2091 0 Cleveland. 0. Big Second Inning Trips Stow, ll-I Led by Denis Sullivan's two-hit pitching and Bob Dewey's slugging, the Green and White baseball team swept to their second victory in six days by trouncing Stow, 11-1. Sully also struck out 10' men while walking five to take his second game of the season. Bob Dewey's long homer to center started off the big second inning rally that put the game on ice for the Reservites. Allchin, Hollinger, and Dick Rogers got on base through errors and Mosher followed with a single. Another error put Critchfield on and Nicholson singled. Sully then walkedg Dewey, up for his second time in the inning, was hit by a pitched ball and Allchin got on base on a fielder's choice, scoring Nichol- son. That inning was worth seven runs to the Green and White. Stow pushed across its only run in the fourth when the third baseman tripled and scored on a passed ball. Reserve added four more to its total in the fifth. Rogers led off with a' single, Mosher walked, and Critchfield singled, scoring Rogers and Mosher. Nicholson got on first on an error but later died at home. Sullivan's fielder's choice hit scored Critch- field. Sully then scored on another error.

Page 102 RESERVE RECORD April 18, 1946 Tebmen Win Season Opener The Reserve baseball team began its sea- son in a great way Friday by edging out Northfield, 4-3. The game was close and exciting, but the number of errors and mis- plays proved that it was an early season contest. The important thing is that Re- serve won, and we shall probably see a. suc- cessful season. Although the home team put a man on third base in both the first and second in- nings, they were unable to score until the third after Northfield had made two runs on one hit, two errors, a wild pitch, and a fielder's choice. When Reserve came to bat Dick Rogers singled for Reserve and scored on a strikeout and an infield out, though not a hit was made. In the next frame Bob Dewey's double and Chuck Critchfield's single tied the score at 2-2. In the first half of the last inning, North- fiel'd's pitcher walked, was sacrificed to sec- ond, stole third, and scored on a rundown play in which home plate was left un- guarded. Denis Sullivan started the winning rally in the last of the seventh with his triple to deep center. Dick Rogers doubled to the same spot, scoring Sully, but neither of the Kramer raps out a single in.

The faculty gardens through the diligence and devotion of their keepers have yielded of vegetables during the Evidently gardening has abundant crops lean war years. appealed to the bucolic senses of our mas- ters, for, even though the war is over, some are continuing with the pastime on a larger scale than ever before. This summer will find the acting head- master, Mr. R. W. McGill, toiling over almost an acre of land on the Evamere farm, thinking of the rich harvest which will reward his diligence and the low merit scores which will reward next year's malefactors. On a smaller plot of land adjoining the Hockey Pond Mr. Jones- armed with enthusiasm, "Vitagrow", hoe and shovel fnot an altogether alien instru- ment to the head of the English depart- ment-will attempt to surpass Mr. McGill in the production of egg plant, horse- radishes and sundry delectables. Not to be neglected are the agrarian impulses of Mr. Harrison M. Kitzmiller, who has al- ready taken the post position in the race with early crops of onions, peas and cab- bage already in the ground. Unfortunately the stress and strain of the existing national affairs will restrict the gardening activities of Messrs. Auld and Mickel. In fact the Squires of Hudson Town are afraid that they may have to forsake their gardens completely in the face of recent events. This marks the first time in many at year that summer has not found the Squires and their families rais- ing their own vegetables. Mr. Auld de- clined to comment upon his withdrawal from the field. He did intimate, however, ,that an interview with Ward S. Miller was one of the important engagements on the summer schedule which forced his with- drawal. Let us hope that some of the student population will profit from the good' exam- ples set by the faculty. Vesper Speaker Next Sunday night the Vesper speaker will be Dr. Joseph F. King, Pastor of the First Congregational Church of Oberlin, Ohio. Dr. King is a graduate of Park College, Missouri, and the Theological Seminary of the 'University of Chicago. After gradu- ation he went to Scotland for two years as a member of the Fellowship Movement. He has served as pastor in Oberlin for four years. VOLUME xxu No 25 , AD --- - HUDSON, OHIO, APRIL 25. i946 late Entries Open Dedication of Memorial Tree by R. S. Wilson To Climax Celebration of l20tll Anniversary The past week at Reserve has occasioned a great deal of discussion in regard to the Acadcmy's early history. Probably all Reservites-with the exception of the fresh- men-have gleaned some inkling of the school's first years since their arrival on the campus. But after the recent series of lectures devoted to the events following April 26, 1826. everyone has considerably more information regarding our development. Founders' Day is being emphasized more than usual this year because April 26, 1946, marks the Academy's one-hundred twentieth anniversary. Mr. Robert S. Wilson, Presidcilt of the l3oa,rrl of Trusfces, who will preside at the pIa11fi'ng of the memorial tree. Aid Desired from Students ln Tax Stamp Drive A little known aspect of school income lies in its collection of' used tax stamps. During the preceding year the ofiice, aided by several students, has sorted, packaged and sent these stamps to the Ohio Depart- ment of Taxation in Columbus for a three per cent refund on their face value. This amounted to 81851, which, though seem- ingly a small sum, will help some boy to at- tend the Academy through the Alumm Scholarship Fund. The school would greatly appreciate help from the students in increasing the number of tax stamps turned in. Inquiring at home for stamps and saving them when making purchases are good methods to secure a large number. For convenience a container will be placed near the check box in Sey- mour Hall to receive these stamps. Remem- ber that every contribution counts toward aiding the worthy Scholarship Fund. The chapel talk on Tuesday was given by Roundy. His address concerned the of President Carroll Cutler, who was Mr. life the fourth so chosen to direct the policy of institution. During his administration the the building which bears his name and now serves as the senior dormitory was built. Mr. Roundy spoke eloquently of the life of this man who typifies the ideals for which Reserve stands. Although he was forced to make his own living at the age of fifteen, he graduated from Andover at twenty-one and four years later graduated fifth in his class at Yale. After a changing early career of many disappointments he came to Hudson to settle. He served on the Reserve campus until the outbreak of the Civil War in 1861, when he joined with his students and became a private in the Union Army. At the close of the war he was the ofiicer in charge of this unit. He returned to Western Reserve Univer- sity in 1871 to become its president, a posi- tion which he held for fifteen years. He was a supporter of co-education and fought to enforce it, and also favored an increase in the scale of teachers' salaries. During his term of office the board contained two future Presidents of the United States, Presidents Hayes and Garfield. In 1886 he resigned as president but served as a professor until 1889. He spent the last years of his life in an attempt to promote and encourage negro education, working at Biddle and Talledega Colleges in an effort to further this aim. Carroll Cutler died in January of 1894 and was buried in his beloved Hudson. Mr. Roundy closed with this favorite proverb of President Cutler, "Apply thine heart unto instruction and thine ears to the word of knowledge." This morning Mr. Jones continued the observance of Founders' Week with an ad- dress concerning two of Reserve's great, Homer Sluss and Dean Wood. The speaker drew many illustrations from when Reserve was a "Hardscrabble Acad- L-my", days after the departure of the Uni- versity to Cleveland, when it had to fight for mere survival. In this period it had those years four great masters: Homer Sluss, Clay Herrick, Charles Hickock and Dean Harlan Wood. In honoring these men we do honor to ourselves. At the age of twenty-five Homer Sluss came to Reserve to teach and be its football icontinaed on Page l05, Column 23 Page 104 RESERVE RECORD April 25, 1946 Tl-I E RESERVE RECORD Published every Thursday durlnz the school year by the students of Western Reserve Academy, Hudson, Oblo Joel B.

Reardon Regular Guys In every school group such as ours there are about three distinct divisions into which the students fall. It is important that we watch ourselves when we judge into which group we place ourselves. The most notable group of students in any school is that which is made up of the boys whose attention is equally divided be- tween their activities curriculum and the outside activities of the school including athletics. These boys are well liked by both masters and students. They are seen at all the school-sponsored occasions, in which they usually have a large hand. They are called the "all round guys" of the school. Secondly, there is the group that centers its main interest in athletics while paying only the smallest needed bit of attention to their studies. In a school such as this, how- ever, the strict program of the school does not allow any pupil to make a complete break with his work. Every boy is com- pelled to maintain a certain average in his grades, thus allowing no boy to give his 'whole attention completely to sports. 'l'he third group is the one which, though the outward appearance of the members' record might be good, is a hazard to itself. The pupils belonging to this section are the ones who seem to feel driven to spend all their time glued to their books. They spend every available hour studying. In most cases the harvests of their work are plen- tiful. Theirhnames appear on the Honor Roll without fail and their classmates speak of their scholastic achievements with awe. The boys of whom I write are never seen at dances. Their athletics are confined to general gym. They neither make any at- tempt or show any desire to make a position on a varsity team. Through long lack of athletics they have lost any coordination which they might have had. Other activ- ities such as Glee Club or Record work arc notably absent from their schedules. The most hopeful aspect of their situa- tion is that, when the boys in question read this editorial, they will know exactly to whom it is addressed and perhaps their consciences may force them to make an honest attempt at making all round guys of themselves.

And that, boys, is the end of this column guilt ton the CR:-:concll At almost any time during the school year, when the third period is just about over, a Reservite's thoughts turn hopefully toward the United States Postal Author- ities. With the sound of the bell ending the period, he's off to the mail room, confident that these authorities have not failed him. Thoughts of loved ones race through his mind as he dashes down the basement steps six at a time, looks momentarily at the mail list and speeds for the end of the line. That is, the good little boy speeds for the end of the lineg those who "know their way around" speed for the line beside the line where they beg some previously worm-bloated early bird to get their mail. The contents of the mail pouch is respon- sible for the expressions which appear on the faces of those who receive them. First hope is, of course, a few "female" letters or a letter from "the one" Qdetinitely not the individual's motherj which for Reserve's married clique come once a day like vitamin pills. Ranking next in order are letters from parents or those distant relatives who, because they don't have the time to write, send on a box of "Fanny Farmer's 67 Vari- eites" to make up for it. Mail of this order brings the obvious smile of approval and pleasure. Next, there is the in-between type of mail which is received but could have been better, as the facial expressions indicate. Magazines, catalogs and comic books fall in this department. QA good business man, however, can finance a week-end with the money made by renting out this reading matter to say nothing of the rates which the better "female" letters will bring in.l Into the last category falls that mail which is mail only in the sense that it keeps one's name from being crossed od' the mail list. Advertisements, "Greymantle C. Roll- ingstone's Favorite Recipes," the MIXER'S HANDBOOK, and the very popular "Col- lege of Swedish Massage" furnish the re- maining types of mail which bring that "Vad elze?" expression to their recipients. Barring an unscheduled "message to Gar- cia," no other type of mail that I know of has ever arrived on the campus. In parting let me beg you to watch the sad scene which occurs when a heartless letter-jockey leaves the name of a boy who has no mail on the list. Watch his ex- pression as, after waiting in line for seven minutes, he is turned away from the win- dow by a leering mail room fiend. B.

Netherland Neighbors D Gratilied by Reserve's Aid More than fifty letters have been received from the residents of West Soubourgh in gratitude for the boots and clothing which were sent by the Academy and other or- ganizations of the village. That part of Holland in which the town is located was heavily shelled during the war. Consequently, all vegetation was de- stroyed and many of the houses were ruined. The letters are all well written and many of them are composed in English. Many pictures have been included of the people and the land. During the period of flood the majority of the residents were forced to live in the attics of their homes and in one case a family of five, the father a brick- layer by trade, was living in a room 256 by 41,6 meters. The dykes have now been rebuilt and most of the sea water has been pumped from the land. Many of the dykes were re- paired by using great caissons such as were used for the invasion of Normandy. A let- .ter from a farmer now returning to his land states that from a herd of 20 cows only two remain, the rest having been butchered. The people do not seem to be downcast but go about their work with great gusto. Many of them would like to correspond with American boys and girls of their own age. One lad, who is corresponding with Jack Melcher, states that he is fond of American movies and jazz. Bob Fuzy and Spud Milligan have also had letters from Dutch boys. The people have the motto, "Luctor et emerge" fl struggle and I recoverj. A lion appears on their coat of arms and they are attacking their problems with a lion- hearted courage. There is a good spirit and no complaint is heard. 'R' Man Prominent among Reserve's 'R' men is Tom Allchin. Tom has been a contender in sports since his arrival four years ago, competing in football, baseball and basket- ball. Tall, dark haired, with a pleasing smile, the sen- ior class presi- dent has won letters in all the above sports. As an end in foot- ball he devel- oped into one of the best pass receivers on the teamg at the close of the bas- ketball s e a son he was holding down a regular forward posi- tiong at present he is alternating between the mound and third base. The Varsity Club has added Tom All- chin to its roll and the school congratulates him on his ability and spirit. TOM ALLFHIN Founder's Duy . . . fcontlnuod From Page I03, Column 35 coach. Throughout his teaching career he was loved and respected by his students and by all with whom he came in contact. In 1912 when the school was reopened, Mr. Ellsworth called upon Dean Wood to assist in its rebuilding. Through lean years and those of plenty, his loyalty to the school never wavered. To no other man do we owe so much, for without the devotion of Mr. Wood, the school could never have sur- vived. In 1931 Mr. Wood handed over the reins to Dr. Hayden and from that time until his death, he served as Dean of Students. It is fortunate that almost half the Acad- emy still remembers the gracious personal- ity who left us only a little more than a year ago. Tomorrow Mr. Dodge will draw the loose ends together, bringing to a conclusion the week's program of discussions. The speaker will mention the great strides the school has made in its century and a fifth of building men and training scholars. Finally, Mr. Dodge will speak of the challenge the future presents and of our obligation to leave the school a better institution than we found it. After this final service in observation of Founders' Day, the entire school will ad- journ to the west side of the chapel, where Mr. R. S. Wilson, president of the Board of Trustees, will officiate at the planting of a memorial tree. Two representatives of the student body will assist at the tree's dedication and, when this is completed and the Alma Mater sung, the Reverend Mr. Burns will pronounce thie benediction. 'Dave Nicholson Reports I O Councll's Achievements Western Reserve Academy continued its observance of "Founders' Day" Week with a report on the School Council, given in the morning civil assembly yesterday by coun- cil president, Dave Nicholson, and faculty advisor, Mr. Parker. In his report, Dave observed that the query of: "What good is the councilg what does it do for the school?" has frequently arisen from members of the student body. Dave quoted from the section on "The School Council", in the handbook, and illus- trated the specifications stated in the "school bible" by an accurate report on the more important moves of the council during the past year. One of the council's first actions during the present school year, Dave reported, was the institution of the familiar "Big brother- Little brother" system. Other council plans included the provision for the council-sug- gestion box, the social hygiene talks at the beginning of the spring term, and the de- vising of some means for seniors to speak with Dr. Hayden before graduation. Mr. Parker followed up Dave's report with the announcement of the coming coun- cil elections, and urged every student to exercise his prerogative by voting for the council members to be elected from his class. He asserted that judgment and a sense of responsibility to the school are the impor- tant criteria in the nomination of council members, and, in closing, expressed the conviction that this year's council had done the finest job of any council he had been connected with in the past.

Page 106 RESERVE RECORD April 25, 1946 South Wins Close Meet: Phillips and Howard Star In a close, hard-fought meet with Akron South, Reserve's trackmen lost their second contest, 52 to 66. The meet was close, with Reserve's strength in the field and middle distance events being matched by South in the hurdles, the dashes and the distance runs. The dashes were again a Weak spot for Reserve, Nesbitt's second in the 100-yard dash and third in the 220 being our only places. Phillips starred again in the middle dis- tances, taking first in both the 440 and 880 runs. South, however, gained all other places in these events, and all the places in the mile run. An improvement in the hu1'dles was made when Austen and Lindsay placed second and third over the high timber. Austen's third in the 220-yard low hurdles was the Academy's only place in that event. For the second time this year, Howard and Nesbitt placed first and second in the discus throw. In the shot put, Howard edged out South's star to win again, Jos- lyn gaining third. Nat then brought his total points to thirteen for the day by tak- ing second in the broad jump. In the pole vault, Hasbrouck won while Roush took third. The high jump was Re- serve's. first clean sweep of the year, Wil- liams, Ryan and Sheldon tying for first.

' 1512 Euclid Avenue it Pierce takes a, broadjump Tennis Team Trampled By Akron West, 5-I Last Thursday Reserve's tennis team journeyed to Akron, where the members met a strong Akron West team at Perkins Park. Coach Culver was able to take along only his top four men because of an Akron League ruling. After three hours and fif- teen minutes of hard tennis Reserve's team of Clarke, Rabe, G. Austen and Vaught was forced to yield to the Cowboys from West. 1 ' In the number one singles match Tom Clarke lost a hotly contested match, 1-6, 7-5, and 7-9 to West's number one man, Beyer. Bill Rabe fell in two 4-6 sets to Wagner. Bill's match was close all the Way, and for a while in the second set he led his man. Jerry Austen was knocked oft' by Portman, after another long hard match. Set scores in this match were 1-6, 6-3, and 3-6. George Vaught provided the only bright spot of the day for Reserve by winning over Da- vis of West, 6-2, 0-6, and 9-7. In the first doubles match Clarke and Rabe found West's top men somewhat tough and fell before the Akronites, 1-6, 1-6. The second doubles match of Vaught and Austen was exceptionally close, but again West tripped the Pioneers. Set scores were 6-8, 4-6. West had a good team, one that was very well balanced. If any two standout play- ers were to be picked, the choice would prob- ably go to the number one and two men on the Akron team. Reserve showed much improvement over the team that first start- ed practice three weeks ago. All four boys played good matches against strong op- ponents. In three- of the matches it was a bad first set that knocked the Culvermen out, and with a better start the results could have been much different. The team .has three matches next week, and with the experience they now have behind them, the results ought to all be in Reserve's favor.

Ravenna Powerhouse Blasts Reserve Nine Last Saturday the Reserve baseball nine sustained its first defeat of the season at the hands of a hard-hitting Ravenna High team, which scored 18 runs to the home team's 6. It was definitely an "off" day for the diamondmen, who committeed eleven errors during the seven innings and missed several scoring opportunities as a result of lagging base-running. Although the cold wind affected the play of both sides somewhat, the Reservites were not up to winning form and many of the mistakes resulted in runs for the enemy. The visitors started strong by pushing four counters across in the first inning while holding Reserve scoreless in its half of the frame. Ravenna added another run to their total in the second stanza as did Reserve when Charlie Critchneld walked, advanced to third on errors, and scored on Dave Hollinger's single. Reserve again tried to even the score in the third. When Dick Rogers drove a single through the third baseman, Pat Mosher advanced him to third on a grounder which was muffed in the infield, and both scored on Nichol- son's drive. The bases were filled when "Critch" was hit by a pitched ball. Sulli- van, the next batter, walked. When the opposing pitcher committed a balk, all the base runners advanced one base, Nicholson scoring. The side was then retired on a strike-out and an infield play. It wasn't until the fourth inning that Ravenna really cut loose and scored seven runs, five of the Reserve errors showing up at this time. During the remainder of the game Reserve managed to score two more runs, Dick Rogers and Sonny Betz, running for Mosher who had been hit hard by a pitched ball, crossing home plate for Reserve. Ravenna's regular pitcher came in at the last half of the fifth inning and held the Reserve hitting to a minimum while his teammates continued to push runs across, boasting a total of 18 at the end of the seventh, This game showed the team that winning play must be free of errors and costly mistakes when the opponent plays "heads- up" ball and capitalizes on any misplay. However, the squad learned plenty from this encounter and hopes to profit by its mistakes in future games. 1'!"!0Z"!''!"X"I"X''I"!"!"I"X"I"X"X"l"!"l"l"I"!"I"!"!"!"!"l"l' 4- Q z--:Q :--ee-2-z--e-1--t-as--1-ez--x-0:--:na-1--2 3 E: cn :t E gi 5 m gg M 2 as P' H ta U1 he 3 ZVI C1 r' - ra 'U Z E I Q FU Q 3 5.

King, pastor of the First Congregational Church of Oberlin, Ohio. In opening his discussion, Dr. King stated that words comprise one of the most im- portant components of life, forming cues for all great human events. Words have, how- ever, with the coming of the war, fallen into disrepute by their use in propagandag they tend to "drug the mind while it is asleep." A reason for this lies in our in- capacity to use words not only in their ex- ternal sense but also with their internal meaning. The speaker now gave as exam- ples three words which he considered of great importance. "Magnanimity," he said, means largeness of mind or generosityg the quality of' trust- ing somebody too much rather than too lit- tle. Dante, although a supreme writer, marred one of his comedies by composing it with too great a lack of magnanimity. Lin- coln was cited as a great example of this quality, a quality which will advance one far in life. If a person has everything but lacks magnanimity, he lacks one of life's greatest attributes. Continuing, Dr. King discussed the phrase "spiritually competent". Basically this con- sists of the capability to "take what comes" and to face every experience, regardless of its difficulty. Experience can either de- vastate us or can lead us to make a life with stronger and better foundations. We must deal with both the easy and the hard. Finally, the speaker considered the word "community", telling of the importance of learning how to live and think in terms of it. We must be cooperative for protection and work together for the necessities of life. In every great happening of life- birth, death, love and hatred-other people are necessarily involved. The word "com- munity" must be stressed ini religion. Noted Chemist to Speak Dr. Waldo L. Semon, Director of Pioneering Research at the B. F. Goodrich Company and a nationally known figure in the field of synthetic rubber, will speak in the Common Room on Sunday morning, May 5, at 10:30. The visitor will address the chemistry classes and the seniors who had chemistry last year. A resident of near-by Silver Lake, Dr. Semon has been the recipient of many honors in'recent years. His discovery of the Goodrich product "Koroseal" was publicized in many national magazines of wide circula- , tion, among them the American and the Readers' Digest. QUE ....-..1..-he Munson, omo, wmv 2. 1946 Willis E. Dodge Tells of Early Days at Reservep Robert S. Wilson Presides at Planting of Tree Trustee R. S. Wilson and Acting Headmaster R. W. McGill look on as student repre- sentatives plant memorial tree. Reserve climaxed its annual observance of "Founder's Day" with the traditional chapel oration and tree planting ceremony on Friday, April 26, 1946-precisely 120 years after the small group led by David Hudson laid the cornerstone to old Middle College, first building on the Western Reserve College-and, later, Western Reserve Academy-campus, on April 26, 1826. Mr. Dodge, Master in Latin at Reserve, delivered the Founder's Day speech in the chapel, emphasizing the comparison of the old Reserve with our present day institution. Reading from an amusing announcement of an early college president, concerning vari- ous punishments, expenses and rules governing school life-humorous to us today with our many comforts and conveniences, Mr. Dodge pointed out the great differences between the school then and now. He presented a detailed account of the laying of the first cornerstone and gave an interesting account of the school's early history and traditions. These early pioneers, Mr. Dodge asserted, with their great spirit and willingness to endure hardships, would be greatly disappointed in some of the present-day Re- servites. After reciting a stirring bit of poetry, fit for the occasion of a school's birth- day, Mr. Dodge closed his chapel speech with a final word on the ideals our present school is called on to emulate, and the duty each one of us has to leave the school a better institution than he found it. At the conclusion of this assembly, the Reserve faculty, followed by choir and student body, adjourned to a spot on the western side of the chapel and formed a large circle in a brisk and chilling wind, around the place where the tree was to be planted. Mr. McGill introduced Mr. R. S. Wilson, president of the Board of Trustees, who gave a brief talk on the subject, "Why Founders Found Things." Mr. Wilson spoke of the recent founding of a small Sunday school in Arizona which he had seen, founded by people who saw no promise of funds to support their venture, and who had little more than faith with which they might work. From this he concluded that the germ which "causes founders to found things", is the ability to devote oneself to something for no apparent gain. , At length amid the echoes of the chapel organ, designated members of the student body planted the tree, Mr. 'Clewell led the choir and students in the singing of the Alma Mater, and Mr. Burns pronounced the benediction. One more Founder's Day had joined the ranks of the 119 before it and become Reserve history.

Reardon Verbum Sapienti Satis Est A saying that has been quoted until it has become trite is that one that "the devil finds work for idle hands". Still, this maxim forms the core of a topic of current discussion, schoolboy deviltry or "putzing" -to the Reservite. Now at Reserve hands are seldom idle. From early in the morning 'til late at night tlater than we'd care to sayj the Academy student occupies his hands with pen, pen- cil or slide-rule. When not delving into some unpleasant textbook, the Reservite may be found with baseball bat or tennis racket in hand. Seemingly, the time spent in studying, eating, sleeping and playing would fill the day's hours completely. Yet, there still remains time for such necessities as room-stacking, car-moving and an occa- sional flooding of the dormitory with a fire hose. When Reservites returned from spring vacation recently, they found some very prominent changes in evidence. Nor can it be said that that these modifications were in the nature of improvement or were in keeping with the Academy's building pro- gram. Where senior rock had once rested amidst the ivy, there was ivy-but no rock, just a patch of barren ground. And senior bench too had disappeared. It can't be denied that occurrences such as these have a taint of humor and are, at first, quite amusing. But there was noth- ing humorous in the appearance of the chapel's facade when the concrete bench had been torn from it. Often heard about these fair halls is the complaint of the fellow who insists that his physics experiments are permitting him no sleep and that he is, consequently, dying on his feet. Why, then, does this individual arise after lights to perpetrate some foul prank, waking up his neighbors and incur- ring the wrath of the faculty ? Heard more often--constantly is a better word-is the complaint about the multitude of rules and regulations that govern all possible phases of school life. We all know that there are sixteen pages of "don'ts" in the good old handbook. Do we all realize that a little more putzing might result in a few more pages? WITHOUT RESERVE Some genius, who for .-3 hp reasons essential to his if' health will forever re- ' ' ' main unidentified, has " written a slightly Ii modified version of the ' 3 opera Carmen, and, as in R V '- the opera season has j ' recently closed, it is 7!'3'd, here presented with the ,L fi Mz gi , humblest of apologies . y -v" 7 to Bizet, who is prob- 186 'Q ably now spinning like , I L ' 45"-' a lathe in his sanctified -'f grave. As some of you may know, the opera story takes place in old Spain. As the curtain rises, a joyous chorus is singing its little heart out in front of the Hallo Cutleranos, the cigarette factory where Carmen and her friends work. The merry villagers are busily beating each others' brains out with curious little pieces of cloth which contain large hunks of stone. . QThat's what happened to Senior Rock.j After they reach the point where no one has any- thing above his shoulders except a bloody stump, the jubilant chorus ends, and with a fanfare that makes the Hallelujah Chorus sound like infant prattling, in comes Car- men. "Ah, Carmen, who is so beautiful, tantalizing, temptilatin', happahfyin', and just o-o-o-o-zin' ovah with mah secret ol' souf recipe!" Thank you, Aunt Jemimah, now back to the script. Now enters the greatest toreador in all Spain. It is the dashing Sir Pflaumos de la Forkos, and he entrances all with his tri- umphant aria, "Stop Winking at That Half- back, Mother, He's Not Making Those Passes at You". Suddenly, it is discovered that Sir Pflaumos, the greatest bull-man the world has ever known, is suffering from the plague that is currently sweeping the country. Finally even the band-aid treatment fails, and as the curtain descends, a shining yellow chariot appears from the clouds, and our hero is borne off. It would have been nice to end this with something funny. It would have been even better to have something amusing at the beginning or the middle, but I guess it's too late for that. C. S. wat ton the Uqcconcil In reference to one of my recent columns on merit score excuses a friend gave me the merit score excuse to end all merit score excuses. I'm told that an excuse of four pages which was submitted to the Dean was rejected. I hope this one had better results. Here in its entirety is the excuse in the author's own words: We all can't be punctual all the time, can we? And this is no excuse either. tNot much!J It's a REASON! According to a certain member of the faculty, whose name spelled backwards is Ydnour Noipmahc Luap, there is a difference. Therefore I submit a reason. This whole matter concerns a lateness tenth given to me by a certain master who lives on the third fioor at Cutler Hall and has a wife named Mrs. I-Iabel, for it was he who gave me this tenth, as you might suspect. This is the reason for my tardiness. I was at the darkroom at 8:30 p. m. develop- ing films for the RECORD. This should have only taken me approximately thirty minutes, but something horrible happened. While I was developing the film, I used too much acetic acid in the rinsebath due to the lack of a graduate. Because of this inconvenience I poured the wrong quantity into the loading tank. As a result the so- dium thiosulphate did not react on the film for one hour, and as a result I was not able to wash the film and dry it. Believe me, that was an accident fobviouslyj, and it was this accident that delayed me for an hour. Now there was a certain master whose name spelled in reverse is Mualfp Naitsirhc Nohj, who was late by about three weeks coming back from vacation due to an acci- dent, and he didn't get any tenths or get put on probation. Is this justice fbreak out the handker- chiefsj? Poor little me is one hour late and I get a tenth. Can Reserve be a 'fair and democratic' school when I receive a tenth and a master who has committed a much worse sin, a sin 'punishable by ex- pulsion', is permitted to get by without any penalty whatsoever? Respectfully yours, Alan M. Kyman, a diligent, hardworking, non-putzing Reservitef' W. R. A. Hosts to U.S. Glee Club On Friday, May 3, Reserve will play host to the University School Glee Club for the first time. The club will come for dinner, accompanied by the U. S. Headmaster, Dr. Peters, and the songfest will be held after dinner in the Cutler Common Room. At this meeting the Academy club will do all the singing, and it is hoped that perhaps next year U. S. will play host to the Re- serve Glee Club and at that time assume all the musical honors. The program will start with a welcome address by Mr. McGill and a reply by Dr. at Friday Dinner Program Peters. Then a tribute to the servicemen, both present and past, will be sung by the glee clubs and audience in unison. Follow- ing this the Reserve Glee Club will render several numbers, the octet will sing, and there will be unison singing of other popular songs. The program will close with the singing of the U. S. alma mater, Hail! Uni- versity! Mr. Clewell hopes that this meeting will eventually lead to the mass gathering of the four school glee clubs-Laurel, Univer- sity, Hathaway-Brown and Reserve.

Reserve started the scoring in the first stanza with two runs, Rogers and Nicholson crossing home plate before the side was retired. Nichols and Shepard added to the score in the second when they got on base on a walk and a single respectively and then were driven in on a well-placed single by Pat Mosher.

King directed the singing of the "Holy City", an oratorio by A. R. Gaul. The se- Glevm King who led choir of 90 tonight lection was written by Mr. Gaul in memory of a friend who was killed in France. It was presented tonight in memory of the late Harlan N. Wood, former headmaster and senior master of Western Reserve Keen Competition Sparks Inter-Dorm Softball Games Two weeks ago Sunday the first games of the inter-dorm softball league were played. North Hall challenged the team from Carroll Cutler, and the second floor of Cutler took on the prefects. The first game was fairly one-sided as the Pfiauma- delphians mauled North, 17-4. On the other diamond the second fioor Cutler boys battled nip and tuck with the prefects until in the last half of the seventh, when Cutler squeezed in the one run they needed, and made the final score, 15-14. Last Sunday the diamond was the scene of a real contest as the winners of the two previous games met each other. With Wehr and Rodman spinning the ball over the plate, the game became exciting as it pro- gressed into the tenth and eleventh innings. Determined rallies by C. C., led by Vaught, Mr. Pfiaum and Marton, brought the tieing runs in each inning, forcing the game into the many extra brackets. When Ryan hit a homer in the first half of the eleventh in- ning making the score 8-7, the hopes of the juniors soared. They succeeded in holding C. C., until with two outs and the score tied in the last half of the eleventh, Vaught drove in the winning run, making the final score 9-8. These games create a popular spirit of in- ter-dorm rivalry and give opporunity to all for some good exercise and enjoyment on Sunday morning. Academy. The funds received from the presentation will be used to provide a need- ed background for the Harlan Wood memor- ial chimes which have been made possible by the contributions of the Academy and the church and which will soon be added to the church organ. The "Holy City" was sung by the com- bined choirs of St. Paul's Episcopal Church of Akron and the Hudson Congregational Church. Mr. King, the choirmaster of the Congregational Church choir, is also on the music staff of the school. He recently re- turned from France where he served in the United States Army. Accompanying the choirs were an organ, piano and an ensemble from the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra. Bob Evans, a junior at the Academy and regular organist of the Congregational Church, played the organ, and Mrs. Lola B. Evans, a member of the Academy music staff, played the piano. George Poinar, 1st violing Emil Scholle, 2nd violing Fred Funkhouser, violag Raymond Gerkowski, violoncellog Aubrey C. Moore, trumpet, Alfred Kaufer, trumpet, and Frank Scholle, tympani, comprised the or- chestra. The soloists, both from the Akron choir, were Charles Haas, tenor, and Donn Spegal, baritone. Among the ninety odd voices were those of three Academy boys, Clifford Sanderson, Dick Buchman and Bob Truhlar. Spring and Summer Uniform!

Page 110 RESERVE RECORD May 2, 1946 Lehman Victorious Reserve Netters Take Two ln One-Sided Meet A third defeat in as many starts was handed the Micklemen Wednesday by a much stronger Lehman team, who won 73-40 in cold, windy weather. Once again Reserve's only strength seemed to be Has- brouck in the pole vault and Howard in the weights. Dashes . Despite the cold, Lehman sprinters won every place in the 100-yard dash in fast time. The 220-yard dash was another vic- tory for Lehman, with Joslyn's third our only place. Distance and Middle Distance Runs Corky Phillips was edged out of first place in the quarter-mile run by a few feet. A still greater disappointment for Corky was the loss of the half-mile run by an even smaller margin, in spite of a terrific sprint. Lehman gained both first and third places in these events and captured all places in the mile-one of Reserve's weakest spots. Hurdles Frank Austen has become a regular point getter in both the hurdle events, winning a third in the highs and a close second in the lows. However, both these events added greatly to Lehman's score as the visitors won all other places. Weights Nat Howard continued his undefeated record in the discus. His perfect record this year in the shot put was also main- tained when he got an easy first in it. Nes- bitt and Joslyn added measurably to Re- serve's score by taking second in the discus and shot respectively. .lumps In the broad jump Aidie, Lehman's star dash man, beat out Reserve's high point man, Howard, for first place, Pierce taking third. Doug Hasbrouck tied for first in the pole vault with Francis, Lehman's outstand- ing hurdler and pole vaulter. Roush gained a third in the event. The high jump was also won by Lehman with Williams and Ryan tied for second.

Reserve drew their first blood against a compara- tively weak Akron Buchtel team last Thurs- day, trouncing the Griflins, 6-0'. On Tues- day the team again wrought havoc on an Akron team, this time beating Central, 6-0. A third meet, scheduled with our arch rival, University School, was postponed because of cold weather. In the Buchtel meet the Akronites man- aged to gain only one set from the Green and White. Playing like champions, the Pioneers won all four singles matches by wide margins and then went on to add the two points for doubles. Tuesday it was the same story as Central fell to the Reservites. Tom Clarke made quick work of his opponent, Heilmier, win- ning 6-0, 6-2. Bill Rabe did even a little better, easily taking his man, Scatterday, in two 6-01 sets. Jerry Austen followed this up with a well-earned 6-0', 6-2 victory over his opponent, Schmuck. To make it a, per- fect day in singles, George Vaught out- played Haberman for a 6-2, 6-2 win. The rubber city team won their only set in the first doubles match but failed to daunt the sharpshooting of Ayers and Cleminshaw as the Reservites came back to take the second and third sets of their match 6-2, 6-0'. In the second doubles match Johnny McCombe and Jake Brown made the meet a complete whitewash by downing their men, Schmuck and Bryan, 6-0, 6-2. Although these meets did not afford the competition that will be met in matches with such consistently strong teams as Cranbrook and University School, the team did show a marked degree of' strength. From now on the Culvermen should become increasingly stronger as the season pro- gresses. Twinsburg Falls To Tebmen, 5-2 Though they were outhit 8-4, the Green and White baseball team won its third vic- tory in four games Wednesday over Twins- burg, 5-2. The game could hardly be called impressive as there were many misplays on either side, but the pitching of Tom All- chin made up for the weak hitting and the mistakes in playing. Tom struck out twelve batters, accounting for more than half the outs. , Twinsburg went ahead in the first inning on a hit, a stolen base and an error. Re- serve evened the count in the first however when Dick Rogers, who singled, scored on a pair of errors and an infield out. For the second time this year the Pioneers made the most of a big second inning. In their half of the second, after Hollinger, Allchin and Rogers had filled the bases on an error and two walks respectively, Pat Mosher singled, scoring three runs. Reserve scored its last run in the third inning when Paul Shepard singled and scored on an error and an out- field fly. Twinsburg ended the scoring in the fourth on two hits, an error and a passed ball. In the fifth inning Allchin struck out the Twinsburg team for three up, three away. Twinsburg AB R.

The score was 3-0. The Bedford pitcher, Waterman, had a good fast ball and suc- ceeded in silencing the Reserve bats- striking out twelve and allowing only two hits in the entire game. In the first inning the B squad started out badly when two Bedford runners crossed the plate. The visitors scored their other run by a passed ball in the third inning. Oliver, Reserve's pitcher, backed by very good fielding, allowed few men on the bases. He also slugged the only two hits for Re- serve. With better batting quite a few B squad boys should show great promise for Teb's varsity team next year.

Holcomb Discusses Journalism as a Career Yesterday the Academy was privileged to have as its guest speaker at the civil as- sembly program Mr. Lynn S. Holcomb, managing editor of the Akron Beacon Jour- nal. Mr. Holcomb is the third speaker to address the school during the current series of vocational discussions. His subject was Journalism. Keynoting his talk, Mr. Holcomb disa- vowed the popular conception of newspaper life as it is portrayed on movie screen and radio. He stated that this type of occupa- tion is not all glamour and adventure, as one may be led to believe, but constitutes in large measure routine work that is mo- notonous. Even so, the speaker continued, the literary life is one of the most interest- ing. The newspaperman meets people in all walks of life-presidents and politicians, convicts and social workers. Through con- tact with these people he develops an un- derstanding of the workings of society and learns what makes the 'fnews behind the news". It is this sort of experience that makes journalism a satisfaction, for though few newspapermen attain wealth in the material sense, all have in later life a col- lection of memories that could have been accumulated only in work of this kind. The press, Mr. Holcomb asserted, is one of the most vital functions of democracy. Because of its great influence on public thinking it is very important that the newspaper be unbiased. When the press is no longer free, then we may look for the decline of democracy. In conclusion, Mr. Holcomb stated that journalism is in need of men of vision and high ideals, men who can keep themselves free of entanglements, men who will base their judgement on fact, and finally, men who have no scruples against "butting" into other people's business. Singers to Join with laurel On Saturday night the Glee Clubs of W. R. A. and Laurel School will hold a joint concert at Laurel in Cleveland. The boys attending the concert will be attired in summer formals. Included on the planned program, which will start at about 8:00 p. m., is unified and separate singingmby the two clubs. The Academy octet will also add several of its renditions to the program. The accompaniment for the singing will be supplied by Mrs. Evans and Mr. King at the piano, with Mr. Clewell and Miss Orpin directing their respective clubs. Following the concert there will be a dance until about midnight, after which the boys will board the bus and return to the school. Chemistry Students Hear Noted Research Director Last Sunday morning the chemistry stu- dents of Reserve were privileged to have Dr. W. L. Semon, Director of Pioneering Research for the Goodrich Rubber Company, speak to them on the subject of synthetic rubber. Dr. Semon started his lecture by relating a little concerning the history of rubber-how Columbus noticed the Indians wearing crude boots made of rubber taken from the nearby rubber trees, how rubber got its name from Priestley's disclosure of the material "rubbing" off pencil marks, and Faraday's first analysis of natural rubber. Natural rubber without being vulcanized will become very hard in winter and very soft, sticky and smelly in summer. Dr. Semon said that to overcome these prob- lems chemists had to experiment with rub- ber for years until finally they came upon the present-day process of vulcanization. Rubber could not be commercialized until this process was discovered. I Continuing his discussion with illustra- tions on the blackboard, Dr. Semon went into the complex molecular structure, the reasons why rubber is elastic and finally his main theme of synthetic rubber. He said that synthetic rubber was a long story in the making-that 14,492 synthetic kinds of rubber were made before Pearl Harbor, and of these 100i were fairly good, a dozen being used commercially. The visitor ex- plained about the different compounds of synthetic rubber and the methods of find- ing one that can be vulcanized. Dr. Semon then turned his attention to the advantages and disadvantages of syn- thetic tires compared with natural ones, bullet-proof tires and gasoline tanks, rub- ber-yielding plants fthe Russian dandelion and the goldenrodj, his own discovery "Koroseal" with which the clear thin rain- coats and shower curtains are made, and many other rubber products. In the question period that followed he wontinuod on Page H2. Column 21 Cum laude Keys Awarded leng Day of Rest Granted All At a ceremony conducted during the Friday morning chapel service, the newly elected members of the Cum Laude Society were accorded recognition. Taking part in the ceremony were the Acting Headmas- ter, Mr. Jones and Mr. Cleminshaw. Mr. Jones described the qualifications for mem- bership and Mr. Cleminshaw discussed the history of the organization and the founding of the Reserve Chapter. Three boys of the present senior class were selected for the honor last year but their induction awaited for this service. These boys were Tom Clarke, Terry Gar- rigan and Herb Gleason. Seniors recently chosen included Bob Dewey, Angus Fletcher, Winkie Haggerty, Dick Howell and Alan Hyde. Elevation to the society was award- ed to two juniors: Dick Buchman and Bob Evans. After the badge had been awarded to each of these, all received the hearty congratulations of faculty members. At the conclusion of the initiation cere- mony, Mr. McGill announced amid cheers of some 200i lusty throats that all formal classes would be suspended for the day in honor of many contributions to life made by Reserve men, particularly that of Joel B. Hayden, Jr. for his "Fugue in A Minor" recently played by the Cleveland Orchestra in Severance Hall. Fortunately the day was a beautiful one, giving opportunity for each student to fol- low his own inclinations. Two baseball games were immediately organized. In a hotly contested struggle the seniors won over the faculty by a narrow margin. Those less actively minded worked in one of the shops, hiked to the farm, or followed their hobbies of photographing or painting. During the late afternoon our guests, the University School Glee Club members, ar- rived and after dinner all enjoyed a general sing with scattered numbers by members of the Glee Club, 0ctet and C.C. Band. Everyone went to bed tired but grateful for a good day. Pictured from left to right are the boys re- cently elected to Cum Laude.

Franklyn S. Reardon Informal Entertainment A great opportunity for entertainment and education is missed at Reserve by the failure to have student-produced assem- blies. The opportunity to speak before a group-the best training for poise and self confidence-is afforded not .to the student body, which needs it most, but to select members of the faculty. Debating, 'public speaking and dramatic clubs, which go hand in hand with student assemblies, have been non-existent here since the war. Surely the academic sched- ule of a school should not be so difficult that it prohibits these very important ac- tivities. The only organization here now which faintly resembles a debating society is the Mugwumps, for seniors only, and only for seniors who are interested in cur- rent events. Outside performers, such as the radar man at the beginning of the year, and, more recently, the magician, could provide variety in the proposed assemblies. The musical talent in the school-both vocal and instrumental-should be given an op- portunity to perform, and awards for scho- lastic and athletic achievement might be given at these meetings. Plays produced by a Reserve dramatic club could be pre- sented. Student support of these organizations will come if these clubs are given an op- portunity to show their accomplishments to the school. The handbook provides for an orchestra and a rally band. If there are such organizations, why not have them play before the whole school? It would do the triple job of giving the musicians experience, stimulating enthusiasm for the orchestra and band, and providing enter- tainment. The C.C. orchestra was well received last Friday, but why have such entertainment so rarely? Not only musical but oratorical and other talents might be discovered. Although the lack of an auditorium makes part of this plan impractical at the present, the gym and the common room could serve as moderately comfortable substitutes. This detail, however, is of secondary importance. The real job is to provide a place in the student curriculum for public speaking, de- bating and dramatics. LUITilDU'l' I' r' rl I" r r' ri r.

'v This particular member of the set had just arrived back from a weekend, and was in the process of unpacking, with the help, of course, of two chambermaids- and a valet borrowed from home for the purpose. From his bag came the following: 1 4-lb. bag Sen-Seni 14 pairs gauze underwear 1 bottle "Evening in Twinsburg" hair tonic 1 copy of poems entitled: "A Sight I Think I'll Never See, Is Doctor I. Q. in the Balcony?" 1 bottle "Little Wonder" mustache en- courager 1 pair tweezers, in case mustache gets over-encouraged While the myriad process of unpacking was going on, I was duly entertained by my host as he gave me a full account of his family tree, all the way from Abraham Lin- coln this great-unclej to Queen Wilhelmina this auntj. When I first came in, I noticed that one does not knock on the door. One rings the doorbell. When the ivory button has been pushed, two mechanical arms dressed in royal blue velvet sweep up and down a large harp standing inside the door, thus warning our Lord Fauntleroy that someone awaits his presence. There is a very little wall space that is not used. Most of it is hung with pictures of Napoleon, Charlemange, Catherine the Great and Tokyo Rose, all, he tells us, close relations. The floor is covered with a rug about 4 feet thick. It gives one the impression of one's last visit to one's barnyard. But hanging over the window is the crowning glory, the piece de resistance, it is his coat of arms. It consists of a bath- tub rampant on a field of upper crust. il..- Dr. Semon .H . . icontlnued From Page Ill, Column 21 answered many puzzling questions of the Reservites. Dr.. Semon concluded his very interesting discussion by saying that this field of chemistry is open to anyone that is willing to work very hard and is not readily discouraged. , juat ton the Uqecondl With the exception of last Saturday every weekend has found a few Reservites watch- ing the track meets with their girl friends. This article is not written to cast asper- sions toward the intelligence of these dam- sels but rather to bring out the humor of their inquiries. I shall set down a conver- sation I have recently overheard between Joe Reserve and his girl as they watch a track meet. Without dialect it goes some- thing like this: "Joey, why do they have those obstacles all over the track? Won't somebody run into them ?" "Those obstacles are hurdles and the ob- ject is to jump over them, not run into them. See, the race is beginning!" "Why didn't Reserve win?" "You're going to get tired of asking that question!" "What's that little boy doing with that economy size PO-GO stick?" "That is 'Golden Boy' Wehr and he's pole vaulting. Before you ask any more questions, I'll tell you that those three boys over there on their knees are our milers and they're not shooting dice, they're pray- ing as a last resort. That cute boy over yonder without a uniform is a fugitive from a tennis net who got his high jumping practice by winning games and leaping over the net until our coach, the man on your left with the whip, saw him. They don't throw that little metal ball over hand because it weighs twelve pounds. Is there anything else you want to know?" "Yes, why are our runners chasing the opposition's runners with a stick?" "That's not a chaseg it's the 880-yard relay and we're behind. If you'd listen to 'Babbling Bob' Boone, our manager, broad- cast the events through his megaphone, you'd know what was going on." "Joey, I'll bet you think I'm awfully dumb as far as track is concerned. Well, I guess you're right, but I do know about the event that's being run now. I know that when the man calls out 'Seventeen six' that he is giving the number of sec- onds it took the boy to run from the little stick he put in the ground, down the path to the white line. But, Joey, why do they have that pit in front of the white line? Joey, speak to me! Joey!" ..l..L-.1 Sport Shorts Yesterday afternoon the Reserve base- ball nine played a once-postponed game with Akron East here on the school diamond. The contest was a 1-Oi defeat, both teams being unable to score in the regular seven innings. However, the Akronites managed to work a man around to third in the first of the eighth and on a passed ball pushed him across for the only counter of the day. It was a pitcher's battle all the way, Denis Sullivan hurling well for Reserve and strik- ing out many of the enemy batters. May 9, 1946 U. S. Glee Club Entertainecl By Reserve's Musical Talent Last Friday night the members of the Western Reserve Academy Glee Club enter- tained as guests the Glee Club of University School in Cleveland. The Preppers arrived in time for dinner and remained until about 8:45 p. m. The joint meeting of the two clubs has been a project which the two di- rectors, Mr. Ralph E. Clewell of Reserve and Mr. Paul A. Beymer of U. S., have long been contemplating. Several previous dates were made but each resulted in cancellation for one reason or another. The two main purposes of the get-to- gether were the promotion of better school relationships and the honoring of the mem- ories of our alumni who fought and died for our country. In order to get the audience and the Re- serve Glee Club in singing form, the pro- gram began with two verses of "America". Spud Milligan then took over, and the com- bined clubs along with the audience sang the "Army Air Corps Hymn", "The Cais- sons Go Rolling Along", "The Marine Hymn" and "Anchors Aweigh". Between the selections Spud read off the number of former Reservites who have fought in each of the different branches. Mr. McGill welcomed the boys from U. S. with a short talk in which he especially commended the sympathy expressed by Dr. Harry Peters, the headmaster of U. S., dur- ing Dr. Hayden's recent illness. Dr. Peters then answered Mr. McGill's welcome and expressed his hope that the relations be- tween the schools might grow with subse- quent meetings. The Reserve Glee Club next sang two numbers, "Rantin' Rovin' Robin", an old Scotch folksong, and "The Pilgrims' Chor- us", by Wagner. The Octet rendered "A Policeman's Lot Is Not a Happy One" by Gilbert and Sullivan and joined with the rest of the audience in "The Bells of St. Mary's". Later Spud Milligan conducted "Deep in the Heart of Texas" with every- body singing. The surprise attraction of the evening was the appearance of the Carroll Cutler Sym- phony Orchestra. This amazing little group played two undistinguished selections with plenty of noise and an unending number of choruses. The Octet's next number was "Old Black Joe" by Stephen Foster, though it is doubtful that the composer would have recognized it. The Glee Club's last two selections were "The Sleigh" and "The Sol- diers' Chorus" from Faust. The evening ended with the singing of "Hail University" by everyone present.

Mr. Sa'adeh has been around the campus for sometime now, and yet it is doubtful whether many have realized that he represents only a third of the Sa'adeh family. Mrs. Sa'adeh arrived in Cleveland on Wednesday night, May 1, after a long and tiring, though interesting trip from Beirut, Syria, where she has lived for six months without her husband. Brought up in Syria, in the neighbor- hood of Beirut, Mrs. Sa'adeh speaks Eng- lish, Armenian, Arabic, French and Turkish, the language of her native land. Mrs. Sa'adeh was the editor of the college paper at the American University of Beirut, which she attended up to the time of her gradua- tion in 1937. During the war years she did work for the British Legation in Syria, and also spent fifteen months as an employee of the American Legation.

Mr. Frye, who comes from Akron, has been a professional magician for 21 years. He has played in every state in the Union, every province in Canada and many cities in Mexico. 1 Mr. Frye opened his act with an excel- lent presentation of the "vanishing wand". This was followed by various other "van- ishes" and several amazing examples of wizardry. For his final and most amazing trick he performed the famous Houdini box escape, which began with the construc- tion of the box before the eyes of the spec- tators by four boys chosen from the audi- ence. Miss Jester was then securely tied in a strong satin sack and placed in the box. The top was locked on and the whole thing enclosed in a canvas covering. Next the four boys held a small tent over the box into which the magician entered. In three seconds Miss Jester appeared in Mr. F1-ye's place, and upon opening the box the magician was found in his assistant's former position. Although a small stage space somewhat hindered Mr. Frye, he presented a very pleasing act which was well received. Since this performance was an introduction to different types of Saturday evening enter- tainment, the reception would indicate that the student body wants an occasional change from the regular Saturday night movie.

Page 114 RESERVE RECORD May 9, 1946 Garfield Deals Trackmen Third Setback ol Season With only three first places, Reserve's runners suffered, their worst defeat of the season 91 113 to 26 2X3 at the hands of Akron Garfield. Running away from home for the first time this year, not only the score but Reserve's times were poorer than usual in this mid-week meet. DASHES: Garfield's brilliant sprinter, Jack Gibson, easily won both the 100 and 220-yard dashes. He was well supported by his teammates who took all' other places in the 100 and were edged out of a third in the 220 by Daily, a promising sophomore dash man. HURDLES: In the 120-yard high hur- dles, Austin gained Reserve's only point by taking third. The low hurdles, in which each man ran alone against time, were swept by Garfield. DISTANCE AND MIDDLE DISTANCE: A spectacular sprint brought Corky Phil- lips up from behind to win first place in the half-mile run. In the quarter mile, however, Gibson beat him out for the num- ber one spot. Phillips has so far this year been the only Academy runner to place in either the mile, 880 or 440-yard runs. JUMPS: Doug Hasbrouck fell far be- low his average this year when he tied for second with two Garfield men at 9 feet 6 inches. The high jump was won by Gar- field with 5 feet 11 inches, Bud Ryan tak- ing third. In the broad jump Gibson got his fourth first of the day, while Garfield took all other points in that event. WEIGHTS AND RELAYS: Two of Re- serve's three firsts were made by Nat How- ard in the discus and shot put. By putting the shot 42 feet 154 inches Nat was again high point man for the day. Nesbitt's sec- ond in the discuss was the Academy's only other place in the weights. Both Garfield's mile and half-mile relay teams easily out- sped the Reserve relay men. Tennis Team Wins Third Match: Blanks Cuyahoga Falls, 6-0 ReserVe's netmen added victory number three to their record last Thursday by win- ning from the Cuyahoga Falls team, 6-0, on the Academy courts. From the start the ultimate result of the meet was never in doubt. Tom Clarke started the fireworks, disposing of his man, Massic, in 6-0, 6-2 sets. Bill Rabe quickly followed this with a 6-0, 6-0 win over Falls' number two man, Reynolds. Jerry Austen easily won over Richards in two 6-0 sets, and George Vaught followed him, clinching the meet with a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Met- rovich. Bill Cleminshaw and Jake Brown made the score 5-0 with an easy 6-2, 6-1 win over Falls' number one doubles team. Johnny McCombe and Jon Ayers made the meet a complete whitewash by taming the Tigers' number two doubles team in 6-3, 6-1 sets. Micklemen Fall to Shaw In Meet,-7012 to 44M Showing as much spirit and skill as it had this year at any previous meet, the Green and VVhite thinclads fell before Cleveland Shaw Saturday, 70116 to 4456. As has been the trouble in all the earlier meets, the Reserve team was overloaded in two or three events and too weak in the others to balance the score. Three new names, how- ever, broke into the scoring column for the first time this year. Leonard Gordon cap- tured a second in the mile, Jim Connors drew a third in the discus and Fritz Ger- hauser was one of the members of the win- ning half-mile relay team. DASHES: Both the 100 and 220-yard dashes were won by Cooper of Shaw. Dave Nesbitt and Bob Joslyn of Reserve took thirds respectively in those events. Corky Phillips followed two Shaw runners across the line in the 4404 to add another point to the Reserve total. HURDLES: Frank Austen of the Green and White took three points in the hurdle events by finishing behind Barrett in the 220 lows for two points and behind Barrett and Hornung of Shaw in the 120 highs. So far this year Frank has been consistently making points for the team and is one of its mainstays. DISTANCE: The best that Reserve could do in the mile and the half-mile was to take two seconds, but the second in the mile was the first place made in the mile all year. Corky Phillips as usual inthe half took a second. Leonard Gordon was the first Reservite to make mile points for the team, and he can be counted on for more before the close of the season. The sloppy track made running harder for everyone. JUMPS: Hasbrouck of Reserve returned to his regular good vaulting as he took the vault with a 10-foot 3-inch mark. Hank Williams took a first in the high jump, and Nat Howard grabbed a second in the broad jump. Bud Ryan followed Hank with a third in the high jump. WEIGHTS AND RELAYS: Nat How- ard, thus far undefeated in either the shot or the discus, added ten more points to his huge season total with two firsts in these events. Jim Connors took a third in the dis- cus to break into the scoring range. Shaw easily took the mile relay, but the half-mile relay was awarded to Reserve when Shaw was disqualified for passing the baton out- side of the passing zone. 3020201011-1o1rx1n2n14rio1o14v:o:1 With Spring on hand and summer I near, Q With baseball to be played, I The gang is all going to Saywell's I t . 2 For Sarciriace cold lemonadex g s A Y w E L Us Q 2 Dau G sr our 5 :Zoe-..oz4.:nin.:f.:o.:-411010:-zz1:1-01 into Telrmen Journey to Detroit, Roll Over Cranbrook, T3-3 Last week-end the Pioneer baseball nine traveled to Cranbrook in Detroit, an old inter-state foe, to play the first baseball game with that squad since the suspension of activity in the Prep School League. After a rough boat ride to Detroit and a day's waiting and hoping on the rainy Cranbrook campus, the Tebmen finally were able to play the scheduled seven innings on Sunday afternoon. Showing consider- ably more hitting power and alertness than in previous encounters, the baseballers pounded two Cranbrook hurlerg for thir- teen hits and as many runs to boost the winning streak to four straight games. Plenty of credit goes to pitcher Denny Sul- livan, who limited the home team to five hits and three runs while fanning fifteen. Reserve exploded in its half of the initial inning with three runs when Charlie Critch- iield lined a solid triple to left field with the bases full, Nicholson, Dewey and Nich- ols scoring. However, the hosts pushed three counters across to end the first stanza with a 3-3 tie. Neither team scored again until the fourth when Nicholson, flashing a bunt signal to Rogers on third and Mo- sher on second, placed a nice one down the first base line, scoring- both base runners on a perfectly executed double squeeze play. Immediately preceding this play, Paul Shepard had been scored on Sullivan's sin- gle, who in turn crossed the plate on an infield error. The fifth frame found 'Critch- field, Hollinger and Rogers accounting for runs to add to the steadily mounting Re- serve total. Three additional runs in the seventh made the Reserve total 13 while the opponents had been held scoreless since the first inning three-run outbreak. On the whole, the squad's performance was very commendable although two fielding errors were made during the course of the game. Sully's pitching showed plenty of improve- ment, his fast ball still fooling the batters, although the curve and change of pace still need to be worked on. It was a tired but happy bunch who re- turned to the campus early Monday morn- ing just in time for classes.

Back, row: Brad Williams, Nat Howard, Charles Cory, Larry Stifel, and President Bill Lindsay. Absent, Frank Cory. Federal Judge Florence Allen To Speak at Commencement Commencement Day, Sunday, June 9, will bring a distinguished guest speaker to the Reserve campus, Judge Florence Allen, one of the few woman judges in the United States and one especially well known throughout Ohio, now serving as judge of the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Allen naturally has a direct interest in Western Reserve, since her father, Emir Allen, graduated from Western Reserve College while the school was located in Hudson. fEmir Allen, incidentally, threw the first curved ball in the history of Ohio interscholastic competition, as testified by the bronze plaque on the athletic field.J Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Judge Allen received both her A. B. and A. M. degrees at Western Reserve University, at- tended the University of Chicago Law School and graduated with an L.L.B. from New York University. For a time she dc- voted her talents to the musical field, serv- ing as a correspondent for the New York Musical Courier, as Musical Editor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer and as a lecturer on music for the New York City Board of Education. Judge Allen began her law practice in Cleveland, where she rose steadily from Assistant County Prosecutor of Cuyahoga County to her present position as judge of the U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Be- sides possessing honorary doctor of law Last Monday Reservites cast their ballots to determine next year's School Council members. The three lower forms partici- pated in the election, each form selecting representatives to act in its behalf. Next year's Senior class elected five members, the Junior class three, and the Sophomore class two. The boys delegated to Council posts will take their office at the beginning of the fall term. When the veil of secrecy clothing the recent event was lifted and the results were announced, it was found that this year's Junior class had named Bill Lindsay as their choice for Council president. The new Council head is now serving on that organ- ization and has been elected many times to membership on various school commit- tees. The Juniors also chose Dick Rogers, class president, Brad Williams, Nat Howard and Fritz Smith to represent them. All of the latter, with the exception of Fritz Smith, have served terms of office on the Council in the past. Members of the Sophomore class picked Larry Stifel and the well-liked Cory broth- ers, Frank and Charles, as their representa- tives to the student organization. The Cory twins will begin their second term of office when September rolls around. The Freshmen, who are allowed two mem- bers in the group, chose Alex Post and Class President George Williams. degrees from a multitude of prominent col- leges, Judge Allen is also Phi Beta Kappa and Kappa Beta Pi, Page 116 ' RESERVE REO-ORD May 16, 1946 THE RESERVE RECORD Published every Thursday during the school year by the students of Western Reserve Academy, Hudson, Ohio Joel B.

Reardon Care If a master happened to come into your room to see how much damage had been done there during the school year, would he find damaged furniture? The equipment 'in the rooms of the various dormitories is expected to undergo a reasonable amount of wear, but this "wear"' is often taken to an extreme. One thing which is most harmful to the furniture is wrestling on the beds. There are adequate places for this and other exer- cises like playing ball indoors. The place for such "putzes" is the gym: if it is not available, boys can make sport outside, weather permitting. Occasionally the fellows decide to play a trick on one of the unpopular members of their respective class. Immediately the boys begin by "short-sheeting" or "setting" the unpopular one's bed. In most cases an at- tempt of this sort leads to successive efforts which eventually result in the breaking of furniture or some personal property. In any case it must be replaced. This is an expense to someone and a waste of time for employees of the school if the broken article is school property. Less-damage would result if the "punishment" were car- ried on out-of-doors. One last thing in reference to dormitory fbehavior is the conduct in the common ,rooms of the various dormitories. These rooms are for the enjoyment of all the boys, and they should be taken care of so that all may benefit from them. But fre- quently "putzing" is carried on there. As a result students must contribute to a fund which will take care of repairs for the damage done by a very small minority. The dormitories are not the only places for care. The campus is another. The first impression visitors receive when ar- riving at Reserve is the appearance of our buildings and lawns. Spring is here, and with it come more visitors. Now is the time for us to keep a neat campus. In short, one should respect the property of the school as he would respect his own property. LU I 'I' il D UT ii E 3 E ii V .E The Subsequent Life of Joe Many "Without Re- -ff", serve" columns have fn been concerned with the ' " exploits of Joe Reserve ' at our beloved school. 1 I Now I propose to give , - you an idea of what i R - 'Q happens to him in later I ' life. ?'1'4, ,ie .. The first thing of j ,ii importance to Joe was ff m , one that is a primary . it Q7 concern to us all- .f M "M" WOMEN! Now Joe "' liked his women, and women liked him fha, hall. Finally he fell for THE girl. After he had gotten up and cussed the banana skin, he began a hasty courtship. One night Joe got down on his knees be- fore Jezebel, and before he could explain that he was just tying his shoelace, she grabbed his arm, called her father to bring the shotgun and ran out with him to the nearest Justice of the Peace. And so Joe Reserve was married. The two were quite devoted to each other. Joe would say, "Honey, there's nothing I wouldn't do for you," and his wife would reply, "And darling, there's nothing I wouldn't do for you." And so they went through life doing nothing for each other. Of course, with a wife to support, Joe had to get a job. He pulled some strings and a few legs and finally landed a posi- tion. He became President in Charge of Collection and Destruction of Refuse Food- stuffs. But he didn't likei collecting gar- bage very well. Then Joe took a tattle-tale gray collar job. fThe laundry situation was still bad.D After working steadily and faithfully for 25 years, his employer called him into his office and said: "For 25 hard, long years, you have worked for us steadily, and we want to show our appreciation by raising your position and salary. You have for- merly worked in the office at the left-hand desk way in the back corner, tomorrow you will go to work at the right-hand desk in the front corner. You will also receive an additional 75 cents per week." As Joe lay prostrate at the feet of his master, he got up and was so excited that he could hardly find words with which to thank Mr. Jones. That night he, his wife, and his three darling children-Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe-celebrated. The mild holiday proved too much, for Joe suffered from an attack of acute dyspepsia. As his widow and children were leaving his grave, his little daughter said, "Daddy was an awful nice man. That's because he came from Western Reserve Academy." fNaive little character, wasn't she?J glut ton the fRa-:cond As the various athletic contests with U. S. approach, I feel it my duty to ac- quaint everybody with the "Whammy" family and its occult powers, for this mys- terious series of hand and arm movements can with a little support and a minimum of effort give us victories in all events. Many of you are already past masters at the art of flashing a multitude of double inverted "whammies" at opposing pitchers and producing the desired results. Obvi- ously the baseball team couldn't have won all those games by themselves! However, recentlyi I have found that there are other types of "whammies" which are equally effective in other sports. uninformed who have never "whammy" or seen one in ac- tion. I will describe the father of the spe- cies-the single or straight "whammy". It is made by doubling your fist and letting your index and little fingers stick straight ahead. This closely resembles the old "bull sign" unless the arm is at full length. How- ever, this single "whammy" doesn't seem to have the "Wham" that its variations do. For instance, the potency of a well-timed double inverted "whammy" flashed on a Northfield pitcher in the eighth inning gave Reserve its opening baseball game. Get two hundred double inverted "whammies" on one person, and you would need a damp rag to pick him up. For sheer disaster nothing excels the double inverted "wham- my"! For the heard of a Nevertheless, my favorite is the secret side "whammy", a single "whammy" turned on its right side. You have to watch that you don't turn it on its. left side because in this position it works in reverse. On its right side it has more wham if directed at the unlucky person without his knowing it. Just let the current run through him until he gives up. This "whammy" is effective in almost any sport, providing it is used correctly and sparingly. Too many side "whammies" cancel each other's effective- ness. With the "whammies" already mentioned, the double uninverted "whammy", the sin- gle inverted "whammy" and any others that you can think up, we should be fully equipped to meet the foe. If these "Wham- mies" should for some mysterious reason go haywire, we do have an ace in the hole -the foot "whammy". In a pinch it is permissible to use this terrible weapon which is made by taking off your shoes and socks and pointing your big and little toes at the nearest enemy. Then just stand around and watch the opposition drop- from the "whammy", of course! n nt P R I N T E R S 2212-I8 Superior Ava. 0 MAln 2091 0 Clcvlllnd. 0. May 16, 1946 A RESERVE REC-ORD Page 117 laurel Concert Given By Academy Glee Club The members of the Western Reserve Academy Glee Club were the guests of the Glee Club of Laurel School of Cleveland Saturday night for the annual concert and formal dance of the two clubs. The Laurel concert is the highlight of the Glee Club season and is eagerly looked forward to each year by the members of both clubs. The Reserve singers left Hudson at about six o'clock and arrived at Laurel in time for a short joint rehearsal at seven-thirty. The program began at eight-fifteen. Miss Ethel M. Orpen, director of the Laurel group, led the girls who opened the singing with "Chorale from 'Die Meister- singer' " by Wagner. "The Galway Piper", "Good Night', a German folk song, and "Astrid and Her Ten Suitors" followed. The Reserve group began their part of the program by singing "Prayer of Thanks- giving", "Concordia Laetitia", a hymn, "When Our Heads Are Bowed With Woe", written by Fred Gerhauser of the class of 1948, and "Chorus of the Returning Pil- grims" by Wagner. The second group of Laurel songs con- sisted of "Waters Ripple and Flow" and "Two Love Songs" by Brahms. The Reserve singers followed with "Rantin' Roviin' Robin", "Massa Dear", "The Sleigh" and "Soldiers' Chorus" from Faust. After the concert, refreshments were served the two clubs in the Laurel lounge. The dance began at about a quarter of ten and continued until eleven forty-five. During the evening the eight crooners from Reserve sang "Oklahoma", "Old Black Joe", "Daybreak", "A Policeman's Lot", "There, Little Girl, Don't Cry" and "Daisy", Dap- per Dan Collister, well known around Lalrel came on a bicycle to the rescue of the pretty maid of the "Poor Little Girl" number and, as the group sang "Daisy", rode Spud Milligan through, the Laurel auditorium. Accompanying the Laurel Glee Club were Miss Marjorie McClure and Miss Eleanor Newell. Mrs. Lola Boyd Evans and Mr. Glenn W. King played for the Reserve Club and Miss Elsie Tinker for the Octet. To care for the property of others is a mark of good breeding- and one of the surest signs of a gentleman. 134114111-v11v34v:4:14v11u1 .....1..1--1.0:--101.

Cleveland Minister Talks Of "New World" at Vespers A sermon on the subject "Wisdom and Love for a New World" was presented at last Sunday's Vesper services by the Rev- erend Wayne Shuttee, associate minister of the First Unitarian Church of Cleveland. Mr. Shuttee opened his talk by quot- ing the last paragraph of a letter written by an air corps pilot to his mother. Within it the boy stated that he and his fellow fighting men have cleared the site and laid the foundations for the better and more friendly world which we must build. Con- tinuing, the speaker said that, if we hope to live with our fellow men and even our own souls, we must accept the obligation to fulfill the present world challenge. And by doing that, we shall need two important qualities: wisdom or the ability to think, and love or the spirit of good will. We have learned much since the begin- ning of time, but the ability to think and see beyond realities should be developed. We often form prejudices against other races and religions only because situations are not considered carefully. Unless they are, we have little chance of building this new world. Love, Mr. Shuttee next explained, has always been avoided in actual talkg how- ever, the need for it and goodwill, realiza- tion of other people's desires and necessities and kindness towards all is of the utmost importance. Never has there been more hatred in the world than in the last few years, and for this reason we must build within ourselves attitudes of kindness, un- derstanding and friendship. These simple qualities-love and wisdom -are required in every phase of life, con- sisting of political, labor, international and private relations everywhere. We must use new and better ways to cure our dif- ficulties, otherwise war and destruction will come again. Journalism Awards Made During Pulitzer Party The place: the Village Restaurant! The time: Tuesday evening! Event: "Pulitzer Prize Party" of Western Reserve Publica- tions! To those boys who have served continu- ously for the past year in the journalistic activities of the Academy, certificates for services rendered were awarded at the din- ner held last Tuesday evening. After a full course sirloin steak dinner, brief speeches were made by ex-editors of the RECORD, Dan Collister and Spud Mil- ligan, ANNUAL editor, Herb Gleason, and present RECORD editor, Bill Wallace. Mr. Reardon, faculty advisor of student pub- lications, who also acted as toastmaster, concluded by presenting awards to the following boys: , fRECORDJ Dan Collister, Spud Milli- gan, Herb Gleason, Dick Howell, Dave Hol- linger, Dick Rogers, Bill Wallace, Brad Wil- liams, Dick Wright, Ted Jones and Jim Lewis.

The team will catch the early train to Cleveland and take the morning plane for Detroit, ar- riving in the auto city after about thirty- five minutes of flying. Friday afternoon will mark the begin- ning-of the tournament, some of our team playing one match and others two accord- ing to the order in the already matched contests. Cranbrook, Reserve, University School, Nichols and Shadyside will compete on both Friday and Saturday, the champion- ship finals being played ofi' on Saturday afternoon. Four singles men and two dou- bles teams will represent each school at this first scheduled Interstate League com- petition since the beginning of the war. Each man on our squad will play three or four matches during the course of the competition and it looks as if condition and endurance will count as heavily as skill and ability in determining the winning school. After the tournament, the team will board another plane, weather permitting, and ar- rive back in Cleveland in time to arrive to the Council dance, to which all tennis play- ers have stag permits. The whole school wishes the Culver squad the best of luck in the first league contest since the war. Howard Cracks Discus Marky Sullivan Pitclres One-Hitter Two of Reserve's athletic teams added victories to their records yesterday in con- tests played on the Academy fields. The baseball team made it six wins in eight starts by downing a strong Cleveland Collin- wood team, 2-0. The team played errorless ball behind the one-hit pitching of Denis Sullivan. While Sullivan was pitching himself a well-earned victory, the Reserge batters climbed on the Collinwood pitcher for five hits and two runs, both of which came in a second inning rally. In that inning the Pioneers combined two singles, a sacrifice, and a Collinwood error to win one of the best games played this year. The second victory was a decisive 85-33 track win over Tallmadge, the Summit County champions. The Mickelmen gave by far their best performancelof the year to win all but three first places from the invading cindermen. The outstanding per- formance of the day was Nat Howard's record-breaking discus throw of 135 feet. In setting the first new record in three years, Nat topped Chuck Joslyn's former throw by two and one-quarter inches. Corky Phillips, Dave Nesbitt and Bob Joslyn also gave outstanding performances. Corky won both the 440 and 880-yard runs, his best ,performance being a 2106.8 half- mile. Dave copped the 100-yard dash and took a second in the discus throw, being beaten in this event only by Howard's rec- ord heave. Joslyn captured first in the 220- yard dash, second in the shot-put, and third in the discus throw. Bob also anchored the winning 880-yard relay team, which ran the half-mile distance in 1:38.6. Netmen Defeat Akron-South, Fall to West The netters managed to gain a hard- fought even break from two Akron League matches. The first of these with the strong Akron West players went to the rubber- city team by a score of 4-1. The second match saw the Pioneers come back to take Akron Buchtel for the second time this year, 6-0. The West match was a duplicate of the hard-fought games that developed when these two teams met on the court last month. Again the contest went to the Cowboys with Reserve again gaining but one point, that a well-earned victory by Bill Rabe. The number one match Went to Beyer of the Akron team after he and Re- serve's Tom Clarke had fought a hard struggle. Set scores were 6-1, 6-2. The second match, probably the best of the day, saw Bill Rabe stage a wonderful comeback to gain a victory over his op- ponent, Wagner, i.n 2-6, 6-4, 7-5 sets. Port- man of West proved himself another good netter as he took Jerry Austen to the tune of 6-2, 6-4. In the last singles match Davis of West reversed a decision that had gone to George Vaught in the previous meeting of these two teams by taking George, 7-9, 6-3 and 6-4. In the first doubles match Johnny McCombe and Jon Ayers fell before the Cowboys, Kaminir and Holoway, 6-2, 6-4. The second doubles match was halted because of rain. Monday's meet with Buchtel was a repe- tition of the previous meeting of these two rivals. Tom Clarke started the whitewash oft' with a decisive 6-3, 6-2 win over Buch- tel's-number one man, Taylor. Rabe fol- lowed this up with a victory in straight 6-1 sets. Jerry Austen kept the winning streak going by knocking off the Grifiins' number three man, Haberman, in set scores of 6-3, 6-0. George Vaught was pressed to the limit in the second set of his match, but he finally came out on top, taking Kat- zenmeyer, 6-1, 9-7. The first doubles match went to the Pioneers with Jake Brown and Bill Cleminshaw showing good form to come through with a 7-5, 6-2 victory. To make it a complete shellacking,'Jon Ayers and Johnny McCombe won from their Akron opponents with a well-earned 6-2, 6-1 win, all totaling up to a 6-0 Reserve victory. Jiggs Sponsors Froslr Feast On the evening of Wednesday, May 8, the Athenaeum held its annual picnic and wiener roast. The festivities began with a baseball game between the freshmen and sophomores which was interrupted at about 6:30 by the call for dinner. At this in- stant a hungry mob descended on the food, consisting of hot dogs, potato chips, toma- toes, cocoa, pop-corn and ice cream. After the meal general confusion reigned for a period, after which several members of both classes found themselves sitting in the hockey pond. Games were again re- sumed and enjoyed until darkness called a halt to the general hilarity. After retiring to the dorm, the boys were pleased with the announcement by the housemaster that there would be no study hall for the evening. During the meeting in the common room, J iggs put on his inter- nationally famed juggling act, which was received with much applause. About nine everyone was ready to turn in, tired but still grateful for a good time.

The occasion marked the inal vocational discussion to be given by a guest speaker in the current series of talks devoted to the purpose of helping Re- servites to find their places in life. Mr. Robinson, partner of the Cleveland firm of Garfield, Harris, Robinson and Schafer, discussed the opportunities of a career in the field of architecture. Mr. Robinson stated that architecture is related to virtually all phases of human life. All of our buildings represent the products of the architect's genius. Hence, in as much as we are born, raised and edu- cated within buildings which house every possible type of human activity, we must realize that the designers of those build- ings have had a hand in our lives. Success in the field of architecture calls for a wide background of education, the speaker continued. The blueprints and sketches identified with this occupation are only a small part of the story. Actually, the architect must be familiar with such subjects as painting, modeling, mathe- matics, proportion, heating, plumbing, electrical installation, ventilation, construc- tion building codes and business admin- istration. ' The field of architecture is an especially favorable one at present, concluded Mr. Robinson, because of the great need for qualified draftsmen to replace those who have gone to war. -. -. Yale Chaplain toGive Baccalaureate Address For the annual Baccalaureate Service Dr. Sidney Lovett, chaplain of Yale University, will be the speaker and guest of the Acad- emy. This year the service will occur at the customary seven o'clock Vesper hour on Sunday, June 21, instead of the morning of 'Commencement day as has been hereto- fore the case. Before his appointment as chaplain of Yale in 1932, Dr. Lovett served as a Con- gregational clergyman in various charges. He received his A. B. and A.M. degrees from Yale and received his theological train- ing at Union Theological Seminary in New York. ' Our guest, an old friend of Dr. Hayden, has been on leave from Yale traveling in Europe investigating the conditions of stu- dents in colleges and schools. Recently he has been engaged in lecture tours through- out the nation to assist in the educational program in war-torn Europe. He will doubtles have a fresh story of student life to present at the Baccalaureate Service. Hudson Pastor Illustrates Christianity at Vespers The Reverend Raymond Burns, pastor of the First Congregational Church of Hud- son, spoke to the school and its guests at the Vesper Service, Sunday evening. After reading a passage from the Scrip- ture, Mr. Burns began his sermon by talk- ing about a green lawn. He compared a beautiful grass plot to Christianity and the weeds to certain characteristics in the life of all of us. Mr. Burns elaborated on these different weeds: the plantain, the dandelion, and the myrtle. When the first of these is uprooted, Mr. Burns explained, it brings a lot of dirt along with its many roots, and if this dirt is not shaken off, the weed will continue growing. In the same Way when we are uprooted by life's problems we should bring along with us enough things so we can get started in life again. Mr. Burns- continued saying that as the dandelion's root grows directly down, one is not able to kill it unless the root is en- tirely pulled out. The faith of Christians whose love in God is so deep can not be quenched unless their complete belief in God is destroyed. In like manner roots of the myrtle weed are spread out in so many places that one can't kill the weed by just pulling out one of its roots. God's influence is in so many places that it is impossible to'destroy it. Mr. Burns concluded his talk by saying that God and his influence are everywhere and will continue forever. From opinion gathered around the cam- pus this sermon was one of the most in- spiring of the many talks Mr. Burns has given at the Academy. ? , Glee Club to Participate In Spring Music Festival Next Sunday afternoon the twelfth an- nual Music Festival will be held in the Congregational Church of Hudson. The program begins at 5 p. m. and includes an organ prelude by Robert F. Evans Jr. of Reserve, five songs by the Academy Glee Club, a group of compositions written by theory students of Mr. Glenn W. King, and finally three choruses from the "Holy City" by Albert R. Gaul. The choir of St. Paul's Episcopal Church of Akron and two soloists will sing with the Glee Club the songs written by the Academy students and the three choruses mentioned above. Mrs. Lola Boyd Evans of the Academy music staff will play the organ while members of the Cleveland Or- chestra will accompany the selections. The students will conduct their own composi- .tions while the rest of the numbers are to be directed by Mr. Ralph E. Clewell. Glenn Carter Chosen To lead Class of '47 Rogers and Williams Gain Offices: Next Year's Prefects Announced The junior class last Tuesday evening nominated and elected the class officers to lead next year's senior class. Glenn Carter by a big majority vote was given the presi- dency. Dick Rogers was elected vice presi- dent while Brad Williams was re-elected secretary-treasurer. Glenn came to Reserve his freshman year. He has been very active in athletics, mainly soccer and swimming and has -a number of varsity letters. The class has high hopes in Glenn's ability at this important post. Dick Rogers, who did a commendable job as president last year, came to the Acad- emy three years ago from Hudson. Dick has been a member of the Council all year and is very active in school organizations. Brad Williams is a three-year man, Council member and associate RECORD editor. As we go to press, announcement of the prefects for the coming year has been made. Glenn Carter, Bill Lindsay, Nat How- ard, Fritz Smith, Jerry Austen, Bill Rabe, Ted Jones, P. M. Jones, Bob Fritz, Johnny McCombe, Gibby Graham, and Rich Nichols will fill the positions in the Athenaeum and Cutler Hall which this year's prefects will soon surrender. An article and picture will follow in the next issue of the RECORD. - .ll Tom Clarke Awarded National Scholarship One of the ten Honorary Scholarships awarded annually by Harvard University to outstanding students tliroughout the na- tion was recently granted to Tom Clarke. This tribute comes as a climax to the pre- paratory chapter of Tom's life. A member of Cum Laude, Tom has distingniished him- self in the field of athletics by virtue of his excellent tennis game. The scholarship provides for one year of study and for three more if the candidate maintains high standards. Tom says that he enjoys all his work except history. He has been considered such a competent stu- dent of mathematics that he took over Mr. McGill's classes during the latter's recent illness. - Tom believes that he will major in Eng- lish or some similar field rather than in mathematics or science. Tom's athletic achievements are also well known in soccer and tenni . This year he is playing in the number one position among the netmen. The student body extends to Tom hearty congratulations and best wishes for the future.

Reardon Boost Reserve! A school without spirit is like a stew without meat and vegetables-there is noth- ing left but a thin broth which has no flavor, no savor, no strength. What would this school be like if the pu- pils and the faculty didn't care whether we won a tennis match, a track meet or a base- ball game ? Fortunately, this condition does not exist, and we know that it never will. We have good enthusiasm for our athletic events-but not as good as it could be. It is our duty as students of the school, and it should be our pleasure as regular fellows to turn out "en masse" for all our contests. In this matter we refer not only to the University School games but to events with any school, be it large or small. Some will say that they aren't going to the game because they "have too much work to do." This is a very weak excuse-oth- ers go and get their homework completed. Still others maintain that if you have seen one, you've seen a dozen. Surely there is nothing in that statement--every game is filled with new excitements, new incidents and the corporate pride of victory. Turning out boosts the morale of our team. If the other team's supporters are few, our cheering strength may break down the opposition's spirit: our support shows others what we think of our team. Merely to come out and cheer for the team isn't all that is necessaryg support is what is called for. Some suggestions along this line may be the deciding factor in gain- ing three victories over University this com- ing Saturday. First, let's keep in a group for "in unity there is strength." Second, let's follow the' ' cheer leadersg By this process we can conserve our energies and not be led off into cheering whims. A The teams will be ready on Saturday. Let's show a rooting section equally de- termined. This week-end will see three ath- letic events at U. S., a baseball game and track meet and a tennis match. At the in- terstate track meet there will be five schools participating.

All win- " ter a family of these creatures had been fondly nursed in the in- terest of science in one of the rooms of Cutler. With the advent of Spring the generations rapidly increased and descended to the public halls of Cutler. The small black mites rapidly took over amid the shouts of suffering humanity. Miss Housel called out the DDT squad and Scotch went to the infirmary. The tide swung in both directions as at- tack followed counter attack. Extra deserts were ravaged by the black creatures and several of the scholarship boys are still missing. As one boy put it, "They can chew up my shirt but they must throw for the extra desert." Young David Sa'adeh was- carried half the length of the dining hall by one of the Tsetse strong men. He let go when heavy ack-ack fire shot away one of his wings. One of the lawn mowers got it in the blades when it tried to fight off a tsetse. The admiral of the hockey pond fleet, Jack Bur- geson, had the honor of leading the TSE WESE, the flagship of the Tsetse fleet, into one of its major engagements. The TSETSE defeated the water spiders only a few nights ago. The victory came only after the dropping by the TSETSE Air Force of an "atomit" fminiature atom bombi. Things may come and things may go but we trust that these pests will live only in our memories. Do the TSETSES putz? But of course! Only last Saturday night they stacked five rooms, set twenty-five beds in the Athenaeum alone. Oh yes, they also pied Jigg's bed. Hi, ho, TSETSE away. P. T. effortto get there and have the Reservite section showing the most spirit and cheer- ing the loudest. duet ton the fRecondl In the midst of the joy and frivolity which made up the last Council dance of this school year, I paused to think of my first Reserve dance. 'Twas a typically beautiful Hudson eve- ning as I, a guileless youth of fourteen summers and a few winters, tripped gayly down the ancient steps of the Athenaeum, falling flat on my razor-chipped face. Pick- ing myself up I walked on through the fog to arrive at last at Cutler Hall. Being new in this part of the country and anxious to get acquainted with the fe- male population, I was a stag-a position gained only after long hours shining the Council's shoes. These were, of course, the good old days when Mr. Jones ruled the social affairs with an iron hand which firmly grasped a volume of Emily Post's masterpiece. The music rung in my ears, yet I stood transfixed gazing at my redection on the shiny floor below me-so shiny because I had spent two hours that afternoon polish- ing it! I was somewhat startled to feel a firm hand upon my arm and a digni- fied voice say: "There is a girl who doesn't seem to be having a very good time, Will you cut in on her?" Scarcely knowing what I was doing, I swept the maiden into my arms. Her false eyelashes ticked my chin as I asked her name. Her voice took me back to the farm as she smiled coyly and squeaked, "Dande- lion McCoskey, what's it to you?" Before I had recovered sufiiciently to reply someone cut in on me and led her away. After that, caution became my byword as I sought out partner after partner. Steer- ing clear of Mr. Jones I went to the far end of the room. And then I saw her! Since I was on my hands and knees I saw her feet first, but it didn't make any difference, for I knew she was the one! My breath came in short "hics"-for it was after inter- mission-when I raised myself up to my full five feet, two inches, and using the snappy technique that I had picked up during the evening, I inquired her name in my con- stantly changing voice. "Thally Thimpthon," she replied, giggling, as she stepped on my toe fl still carry the scari. Not to be outdone, I promptly stepped on her toe. We sat out the next twenty dances, and I would have been happy to have continued that way had not her date, all seven feet of him, returned. That explains why my childish heart was heavy as I made my way carefully up the stairs of the ancient Athenaeum at the end of my first evening in disorganized so- ciety. .Going . . . Going!

Although both squads were somewhat hampered by the soggy dia- mond, the game showed only a few errors. Reserve's hitting looked pretty good, and only a few batters went down on strikes. Again Denny Sullivan turned in an excel- lent performance on the mound, fooling enemy batters with both a hot fast ball and a deceptive curve, these pitches accounting for sixteen Northfield outs. The opposition started the first inning with a run on a triple and a passed ball. Reserve retaliated in its half of the third when Tom Allchin scored from third base on Bob Dewey's grounl ball. Again in the fifth, the Tebmen pushed a run across when Sullivan rapped a solid single past the in- field, scoring Charlie Critchfield, who had previously pounded a long double to left field. However, the visitors evened the score at 2-2 in the seventh when the North- field pitcher scored on a passed ball at third base. Sully then struck three out in the first of the eighth. Mosher and Nicholson got on base on a walk and a single respec- tively, advanced to second and third when the pitcher balked, and Mosher was scored on a squeeze play when Allchin dropped a nice bunt down the third base line, ending the scoring and the ball game.

Summer School Work Offered to Reservites In keeping with its practice of the last several summers, the Academy will con- tinue to accept approved summer work done in several preparatory schools without requiring its own make-up examinations in September. The schools on this preferred list from which credits will be accepted without examination fsubject to certain limitationsj are: The Phillips Exeter Acad- emy, Phillips Academy, and the Lawrence- ville school. Courses taken in the above mentioned schools must be passed with a grade equal to or higher than the college certificate grade in that institution, or with a. grade five per cent higher than the minimum pass- ing grade, if the latter is lower than the college certificate grade. Students planning to do summer work for the removal of conditions or to establish advance credit should discuss their plans in detail with Mr. Roundy and secure his ap- proval. The actual administration of the summer program and supervision of the make-up test in September will be in the hands of Dean Mickel. After June 12, all questions relating to it should be referred to him. --. ..i I-leldinile-moe Friday, May 24-Mr. Roundy speaks in Chapel, 8:05. Saturday, May 25-Baseball game with U.

Rain Plays Loudest Song Al: Final Council Dance Last Saturday the sixth and last Council dance of the year was held in the Cutler Common Room. It was attended by eighty- six couples and many members of the faculty. The receiving line, consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Parker, Bill Lindsay, and his date, Marilyn Ritchie, formed about 7:45 and dancing began at 8:00. Doc Frost and Kerry Walsh assisted by Gerry Callahan ,provided the best in dance music. The rain held off till almost 10:00, so the "pleasures of intermission" were im- paired only slightly. Damp couples returned to hear Mr. Cleary demonstrate his talent at the piano and to enjoy their cokes and doughnuts. After dancing was resumed and enjoyed for about an hour, Mr. Cleminshaw an- nounced that the next dance would be the last, but welcomed all back next year. Soon thereafter the boys accompanied their dates to the cars awaiting them. lSmull Crew Grooms Campus In the April 11 issue of the RECORD it was erroneously reported that two extra men had been added to the campus crew. Unfortunately, although Mr. Tilt advertised one solid month to secure assistance, no ap- plicants appeared. As a consequence, Mr. Tepper is forced to carry on with the five men who have served the school during the war years and one other man who works six hours a day. Despite this lack of manpower and a heavy growth of grass this year, the cam- pus has looked trim and tidy in its spring dress. The men who make this beauty pos- sible are doing all that they can to enhance our enjoyment. Patience toward the limita- tions imposed by the employment situation will materially aid in work of the campus crew. 4 . Q ,, . Thursday, May '304Mr. Jones speaks 'in Chapel, 8:05. Page122 RESERVE RECORD May 23,1946 University Upset by Trarkmen in Final Dual Meet 67-517 Reserve Wins Eight Eventsp Breaks U.S.'s Three Year Streak By Kaufman Corky Phillips breaks the tape in the half-m-ileq over the hurdles go Austen and Rogers, one again Howard heafves the w'in'nings discus throw. Last Saturday's unfavorable weather con- ditions didn't seem to hinder the rapidly improving track squad which finished off its dual meet season in excellent style by decisively beating a good University School team, 67-5-1. In spite of rain threatening almost all afternoon, the events were run off smoothly, the home team capturing eight of the fourteen firsts and plenty of support- ing seconds and thirds to register a definite superiority. Reserve's power in the field events and middle distance races proved to be the main contributing factor to the suc- cess of the contest, Corky Phillips breaking the tape in the 440 and 880-yard runs for an impressive double win in his events, while Nat Howard turned in another con- sistently fine performance by winning both the shot and the discus and taking two well- earned third places in the 100-yard dash and the broad jump. U. S. made a fast start by winning both the 120-yard high hurdles and the 100-yard dash, Carr and Bell of U. S. crossing the finish lines first respectively in these events. Dave Nesbitt ran a close second in the 100, followed by Nat Howard while Bill Lindsay captured a third in the high hurdles. U. S.'s mile entry, Webster, ran the four laps in good time to win, while Gordon and Brad Williams of Reserve took second and third. Phillips then took the quarter and a little later the half to boost Reserve's rapidly ris- ing score, which passed that of U. S. when the field events' results, a clean sweep of five firsts, two seconds, and two thirds, came in to the scoring table. Doug Hasbrouck and Jim Roush tied for first in the pole vault at 10 feet 6 inches, while Hank Williams and Mac Pierce split first place honors in the high jump. After committing two fouls in the broad jump, Bud Ryan hit the board perfectly for a 19- feet 9175-inch winning jump. Nat Howard kept his undefeated shot and discus record by heaving both weights far beyond all con- tenders. Bell and Carr of U. S. scored second wins for their team in the 220-yard dash and the 220-yard low hurdles, Joslyn taking a third in the 220 and Frank Austen capturing sec- ond in the hurdles. The Reserve quartet of Stansbury, Daily, Nesbitt and Joslyn ran four fast 220"s to win the half-mile relay in 1:38.1 but the enemy kept the score more even by taking the final mile relay to set the score at Reserve--67, U. S.-51. The team's performance was indeed com- mendable, and showed what determination and fight can achieve in addition to the con- dition and training which showed up on Saturday.

DRUG STORE Preppers lead Reserve By Two Points in Tourney Journeying to Detroit last weekend, Re- serve's netmen participated in the first In- terstate League tennis tournament since the outbreak of war nearly five years ago. The team left by plane Friday morning, return- ing Saturday night just in time for the dance. Unfortunately the damp Detroit weather permitted only one day of competi- tion. This left the final outcome unsettled and play was to be resumed this Saturday on the University School courts. However, U. S. officials have stated that it is impos- sible for them to hold the second half of the tournament. Thus, as things stand now, there will be no 1946 Interstate champion. At the half way point University's Prep- pers lead with nine points. Reserve ranks second with seven in the day and a half match play. Shadyside, Nichols and Cran- brook follow in that order. Unofiicially, the meet will be decided in the dual meet which the Pioneer and University School squads play this Saturday, as their two teams sub- stantially lead the others in match play. Tom Clarke, playing in his usual num- ber one spot, exhibited some very good ten- nis to split his two matches against for- midable opposition. In his first match Tom lost to Cranbrook's star player, Frey, in 6-3, 6-3 set scores. In his second match Tom notched a point for the Green and White by taking Nichols' man in 6-0, 6-2 sets. Bill Rabe added two points in taking both his matches. The first against good opposition from Nichols fell to Bill, 2-6, 6-2, 6-2. Bill secured his second match on a default when Shadyside's number two man failed to appear. Jerry Austen fol- lowed Rabe's example by taking his first match against Shadyside, 6-2, 6-2. His second match against Cranbrook's man was called because of darkness with Jerry lead- ing 6-3, 4-2. If the tournament were to be resumed, this would have undoubtedly meant another point for the Pioneers. The first doubles team of Bill Cleminshaw and Jake Brown split their two matches against University School and Cranbrook. U. S. took the Reservites 6-1, 6-2 in their first match, but later in the day Jake and Bill came back to trip the Brook's first dou- bles team in 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 sets. George Vaught and Johnny McCombe made a clean sweep of their matches, knocking off Cran- brook, 7-5, 6-1, and then taking Shadyside's Indians in 6-02 6-4 sets. Mr. Culver remarked that Shadyside's Owens was probably the best player of the big aggregation gathered for the event. Of the remaining ten matches to be played Reserve had four with their Cleveland rivals. An Akron League match with Central High scheduled for Monday afternoon was rained out. ole, ERVE Qi IRECCDRD VOLUME XXII-N0. 30 Senior Prom to Feature Music oi Harold Nelson In spring it is said a young man's fancy turns to thoughts of love. The author of these immortal words seems to have for- gotten that a young man also diverts his attention to thoughts of a more sombre nature at this season of the year, namely, College Board exams and Commencement. But the exams are past and the Senior Prom comes before Commencement-which brings us back to thoughts of love. Ah! the Senior Prom! Great are the preparations! It will indeed be, as always, the crowning event of the year's social cal- endar. At two o'clock Saturday afternoon, to tell us June eight,-you won't be able that you forgot what day it was, girls- we hope to see our dates arrive promptly. Following their much-heralded advent to the campus, the guests will advance to the ancient but well-swept Athenaeum, where they will change clothes for the afternoon's program of events. If we are permitted a good day-and that would be unusual- there will be an outdoor program: other- wise the entertainment will be held indoors. In any case we know it will be fun. The afternoon's activities will be con- cluded by five o'clock, thus allowing time for us to dress and be at Cutler Hall for the reception line, followed by dinner at 7:30. After consuming Miss Housel's cuis- ine, the upperclassmen and their dates will adjourn to the school gymnasium, decorated for the occasion, where dancing will begin at nine o'clock. The evening's music will be furnished by the orchestra of Harold Nelson, who played also for the winter term houseparty. The girls will conclude their brief visit to the campus after the last dance, which will be played at about one o'clock.

Roosevelt in the form of N. B. C. recordings became the property of this Academy. In the album called "Ren- dezvous with Destiny" these documentary records are compiled to present a complete and graphic picture of the history of Amer- ica during Roosevelt's administration by recording portions of his speeches. The narration of the album is done by Cesar Saerchinger, who has frequently been a campus guest. Credit for obtaining the album should go to Mr. Roundy and Mr. Saerchinger. Mr. Roundy contends that without Mr. Saerch- inger's help and influence the album might 'never have been secured. It is planned to use the recordings in connection with that particular phase of American history and also in connection with the same period of world history. The records were first heard in the Cutler Common Room on Wednesday and Thurs- day of this week.

Reardon Only Thus Can We Save The four horsemen now ravaging Europe may affect your future far more than you think. Famine in Europe should arouse American aid, if not from humanitarian motives, then for safeguarding the peace of the world. Hungry, discontented people on the con- tinent cause unrest, revolution and war. It has been proven in the last thirty years that such a war cannot be localized-that our boys may eventually be forced to fight the war machine of a military leader risen out of such conditions. Furthermore, an economically and phys- ically prostrate Europe-a Europe without the food to feed its people-cannot pur- chase American goods and is a threat t0 our welfare. But in addition to these frankly selfish reasons there is the greater humanitarian motive. Even if one fails to realize the ominousness of starvation anywhere in the world, he cannot hide, ostrich-like, from the fact that he might help save some of these unfortunate millions. One of the ways we can help this situa- Less bread eaten one produced the next one. tion is to eat less. month means less and more wheat to be sent to Europe. An- other, and perhaps easier method for us, is to contribute to organizations sending food to Europe. We should, however, be as certain as possible that the organizations we give to will get the food where it is needed the most, with a minimum of cost. Does it not seem wise to help others when this help will benefit us and future genera- tions also? Will we be farshighted enough to see that our going without some food now may keep us from ever having war ration- ing again? Although we, with our stomachs full, unfortunately cannot comprehend star- vation, will we be humane enough to feel compulsion to aid the sufferings of our fel- 'low men? Let's make the answer to this question a rousing yes! And let us hope that our poli- ticians and leaders react sensibly to these questions and take greater measures to help this unhappy situation. Only thus can we save lives-and be practical. MITHUUT BESEBVE You Can't Take It With You!

His first action on leaping from his bed with that "can't be copied blend" still gently clinging to his tongue, is to run over to his full-length mirror, gaze fondly into it, and sing in an irresistible manner, "Aren't You Glad You're You". After a short and meagre breakfast con- sisting of something plain and simple like deep-fired humming-bird's tongues followed by a baked Alaska, he merrily trips out to the garage, picks out a car, and is off to school. The first class is a full credit course in sun-bathing, and is shortly followed, by an ingenious class which uses the "Handy Mixers Guide" and "How to Be the Life of the Party" as its textbooks. The next pe- riod consists of a slightly modified version ,of mathematics, using as the text, "How to Make and Influence Horses." The following two and one-half hours are taken up with the lunch period. After a quick round of oysters on the half shell, the poor things have sirloin steak forced -.down their unwilling throats. We notice that at frequent intervals an attractive lady appears carrying a tray, calling out her wares thus: "Latakia, Apple Honey, or a Kaywoodie!" The strenuous day is ended with various athletics: bowling, pin-ball machine tip- ping and track, scored exclusively by the fllonflnued on Page I26, Column 35 Contesl Results After careful consideration the judges have made the following report in the RECORD CONTEST. In the photography department Dick Wright secured top hon- ors with a picture of Pierce House. Cartoon laurels went to Jim Gibans. Both of these winning efforts will be published in the Commencement RECORD. - For the best editorial Dick Buchman will receive the 35.00 prize, his contribution ap- pearing in the April 25 issue. The Just for the Record article, under the date of May 9, written by Brad Williams, was awarded the humor prize. S Juat ton the UQ:-:condl Who is this language genius that has been baffling everyone including members of the modern language department? You know him as David Sa'adeh. To his Arabic friends he is known by another name but unfortunately you couldn't pronounce it if we could print it. Outlandish stories of life in the East, of playing soldiers in the largest sand piles in the world, disporting amidst constant sunshine on camels' backsg these and other stories like them have been told but as yet we have to find the interpreter to make us sure of the facts. It is said that not in- frequently his tales confuse his father. I first became acquainted with this re- markable young man one evening outside of Cutler Hall. As usual he was bemud- dling a group of Reservites who had gath- ered. Approaching the crowd I heard some- one discoursing in a language new to my ears. Worming my way in among them, I was frightened to see someone smaller that Bob Harrison in the center of the group. The little fellow was answering some questions in Arabic fso he informed usj and bouncing back with some quick humor uncommon to Reserve. The conver- pation went something like this: "How do you say you're crazy, Sir, in Arabic?" inquired the innocent minded stu- dent. The reply was prompt, "Ris yzarc er'uoy." Garfield then showed that he had learned something at Reserve by speaking in a dia- lect faintly resembling French. Our won- der boy fwho by the way understands this language as well--ask Gordon who would be at a loss without himj responded, "You speak French like a Turk." "That's very possible you know," Gar- field replied. And so for hour after hour our genius befuddles the residents of Reserve. That's not particularly difficult of course, but what will the new generation unfold! Dod's Day The students of the Academy ap- preciate the assistance which the Dads' Club have been to the school and are glad to add our word. of wel- come to those which have been already spoken. We hope that you have al- ready enjoyed the events of the after- noon, and are sure that you will have a good time associating with the fathers at your table tonight. During the evening you will hear an address by Mr. R. S. Wilson, president of the board of trustees, and last a talk and showing of motion pictures of the 1945 World Series by Jack Graney, well-known sports announcer and ex- Cleveland Indian outfielder. The Dads' Club will elect five mem- bers to the executive committee. These are to be chosen from a group of ten selected by the president of that group. , June 1, 1946 RESERVE RECORD I Page 125 Music Department Presents Twelfth Annual Festival Last Sunday the Annual Music Festival of Western Reserve Academy was present- ed at the First Congregational Church of Hudson. Participating were the choirs of the Congregational Church and of St. Paul's Episcpal Church in Akron, the Acad- emy Glee Club and soloists Charles Haas and Don Spegal. The program was direct- ed by Mr. Glenn W. King and Mr. Ralph E. Clewell, and accompanied by Mrs. Lola B. Evans, Robert Evans, Jr., both of Re- serve, and members of the Cleveland Or- chestra. The program opened with the Finale from Alexander Giulmant's Sonata in D Minor as arranged for organ and orchestra fol- lowed by the Fugue in G Major, or Gigue Fugue, of J. S. Bach. Both selections were played by Bob Evans. The Reserve Glee Club under Mr. Clew- ell's direction sang a set of five songs. These consisted of the "Chorus of Returning Pil- grims" from "Tannhauser" by Wagner: "Rantin' Rovin' Robin," a Scotch folk songg "Massa Dear," based on the theme of the second movement from Dvorak's New World Symphonyg a Russian number, "The Sleigh"g and the "Soldier's Chorus" from "Faust" by Charles Gounod. Following, compositions by students of the Theory Department were rendered. Hymns by Charles Lahr, Fred Gerhauser, Peter Michaelides and Donald Mell were given by the chorus, organ, and orchestral ensemble and conducted by the composers. A folk song by Paul Hobart was sung by Charles Haas, tenor. Alan Hyde's Ro- manza for piano and strings, and Bob Evans's Chorale Prelude for organ, chorus and orchestra were also presented. The finale was composed of three excerpts from Alfred Gaul's oratorio "The Holy City." The festival is an important event at the Academy, especially for the Music Depart- ment. This performance maintained the high standards throughout, and it presents a challenge to next year's festival. Mrs. Evans and Bob played with the skill and excellence which we have come to expect of them. While the choirs and soloists sang very well indeed, special mention must be made of the Academy Glee Club who showed again the quality with which they have been singing throughout this past school lleldinkawtue Saturday, June 14Baseball game with Cuyahoga Falls, here, 2:00.

Academy Graduate Smaslles World Breast Stroke Record , Everyone connected with Reserve should be pleased to hear that a former Academy student has smashed two world's swimming records. Keith Eyre Carter, a member of the class of '43 and the brother of Glenn Carter, accomplished this feat at the an- nual Purdue galacade on May 5, 1946. He swam the 50-yard breast stroke in 27 sec- onds Hat, breaking the previous record of 28.3, and set a time of 29.2 seconds in the 50-meter breast stroke, the former figure being 30.5. Besides this he hopes to sur- pass soon the world record of 60.5 seconds in the 10-0'-yard breast stroke, having al- ready made 62 fiat in this event. Keith, who entered Reserve as a sopho- more, was captain of the 1942 soccer team, a member of the varsity track and swim- ming teams, in each of which he set new records. He is also credited with breaking unoflicially the world's breast stroke rec- ord during a meet here in the Academy Pool. A prefect and council member, Keith's ability in swimming was exemplified by his nickname here-"Fish." 1 l Us ,J Netmen Fall to Preppersp City Champs Take Match Journeying to Cleveland Wednesday, Re- serve's netmen lost a hard-fought decision to the Maroon and Black, 4-1. In the num- ber one match Tom Clarke met one of the best tennis players U. S. has turned out in many a year in the Preppers' top man, Wallace. After a long, very well played match Tom went down in 6-4, 6-3 sets. Bill Rabe, also putting everything he had into this last match, came out with a victory when he knocked off University's number two man, Lezius. Set scores were 3-6, 6-3, and 7-5. In the number three match of the day Jerry Austen found his rival a lit- tle too tough and fell 2-6, 6-4, 6-4. Jake Brown and Bill Cleminshaw, playing the first doubles match, fell before a crack U. S. doubles team of Joseph and Barney. Johnny McCombe and George Vaught, playing second doubles for the Green and White, also went down fighting. Set scores were 6-3, 6-4. Monday afternoon the Culvermen jour- neyed to Akron where they readily took care of the Central High team. In win- ning 6-0, the team closed a successful en- trance in the Akron League. Reservites to Attend laurel Prom Next Friday evening, June 7, the Jun- iors and Seniors who have invitations will attend the Laurel School Senior Prom un- der school-sponsored conditions. They will be taken to the dance and returned by fac- ulty members of the Academy. Any boys who have invitations and who have not made arrangements with Mr. Cleminshaw should do so at once. This dance marks the end of the school year for Laurel. Throughout the year many Reservites have enjoyed themselves at Laurel parties and look forward to hav- ing an equally enjoyable time at this final dance. Many Reserve boys will reciprocate next week when several Laurel girls will attend the Senior Prom here. The Laurel dance starts at 9 p. m. and ends at 1 a. m. QExam Qchehule Monday, June 3 year.

S. track men who were out to avenge their dual meet loss of the week before. U. S. and Reserve took all but one first place from the other three schools, Cranbrook capturing a victory in the low hurdles when the favored Buck Carr of U. S. tripped in the final heat. "Corky" Phillips, the team captain, made a glorious record in his last meet for Re- serve by -winning both the 880-yard and quarter-mile runs. "Corky" later ran last man on the mile relay team, coming from far behind to gain a third place for the team. Nat Howard, high point man for the year, was also high point man for the meet by taking first in the discus and shot put, and running on the 880-yard relay team which placed second. The jump events provided, along with the weights, Reserve's greatest strength. Pierce, Williams and Ryan tied for first place to win all but one of the points in the broad jump. Doug Hasbrouck went 10 ft. 9 in. to finish his pole vaulting career at Reserve by placing first in the Interstate meet. Jim Roush tied for third with U. S. in this event. Howard's prowess in the weights was helped by teammates Nesbitt, Connors and Joslyn. Nesbitt and Connors took third and fourth in the discus, while Joslyn won third in the shot put. Although no Reserve man qualified for the low hurdles, the Academy was well rep- resented in the highs by Lindsay and Aus- left: Phillips fthird from leftj breaks away in the half mile. right: A 19-foot 8-inch broad jump by Ryan. left: Hank Williams clears the high jump bar. right: Stansbury K extreme rightll starts in 880 relay. ten. Lindsay, running one of his best races, finished third, followed by Austen in fourth place. In the 100-yard dash, Nesbitt finished third to Bell of U. S. in 10.7, although both had run 10.5 in the qualifying heats. N61 Re- serve man qualified for the 220eyard dash. The mile run was won by the U. S. sopho- more star, Webster, Gordon finishing second for Reserve. University School won both the mile and the half-mile relays, Reserve taking third in the mile relay and second in the half- mile relay. The meet marked Rfeserve's second vic- tory in a row to hold the Interstate trophy. A victory next year will give the Academy permanent possession of the cup.

Although pitcher Sulli- van allowed only six hits to the five made by Reserve, the team more than made up for it by becoming excited in the second inning and allowing three runs on errors alone. From then on until the end of the game the Green and White, who have played fairly good ball all season, dropped far be- low their regular fielding standards. Reserve went ahead early in the game when Critchfield crossed the plate on Dick Rogers' single in the second inning. The lead was short lived however as U. S. came back in their half of the second to score the three unearned runs. In the first of the third inning a U. S. error allowed Dave Nicholson to cross the plate and bring the score to 3-2, but U.IS. jumped the score four runs to 7-2 in the last of the third when the Prepper batters began to get to Sully for base hits. In the fourth U. S. pounded another run across while the Pioneers were merely able to get men on base but unable to score them. After the fourth inning both pitchers be- gan to bear down on the opposing batters and until the start of the seventh and last inning neither Heinen of U. S. nor Sully allowed any runs. In the Reserve half of the seventh Rich Nichols scored the final Green and White run, the inning ending when Tom Allchin was caught while try- ing to score on an infield error. The records of the two teams in earlier season play were about equal, but U. S., led by the great performance of Captain Harry Kraus, Heinen's battery mate, outclassed the Academy nine in the field and played steadier ball throughout the game. Reserve AB H R U'. S.

I946 Dr. Joel B. Hayden Chosen Headmaster Emeritusp John W. Hallowell Appointed New Headmaster: Judge Florence D. Allen Delivers Commencement Address JUDGE FLORENCE ALLEN Comriicncemcnt Spealter Fifty students of Western Reserve Acad- emy received their diplomas today at the graduation ceremonies held in the century old chapel on the campus. The commence- ment address was delivered by Florence Ellinwood Allen, LL. D., Judge of the United States Circuit Court of Appeals for this district. Speaking on the topic, "The Bridge to the Future", Judge Allen pointed out that "the bridge" always leads from the past. For this reason the Academy must not abandon but must build upon its fine old traditions. In the same way our larger problems can be solved only by building upon tested institutions and practices. The speaker continued by making clear the fact that the United States could not have been established without central gov- ernment and some degree of uniong and that these same requirements are essen- tial to world peace. Just as the United States Constitution could not have been enforced without the sanction of public opinion which supported the constitution because of its substantial guarantees of justice and freedom, so no provisions of any world charter can long be enforced unless they are based upon fundamental justice. In so far as we understand and apply these principles, we shall build world peace, Judge Allen concluded. Recognitions and awards were presented to eight boys by Mr. Ralph McGill, Acting Headmaster ot' the school. A report ot' their accomplishments appears elsewhere in this issue. DR. JOEL B. HAYDEN Headmaster Emeritus Dr. Joel Babcock Hayden, Headmaster since 1930, has been appointed Headmaster Emeritus to take eifect upon his retirement today. This honor conferred by the Board of Trustees comes as a richly deserved tribute to sixteen years of service. During this period the number of students in at- tendance has reached capacity, the mate- rial plant has been expanded and the im- provement in scholastic achievement has brought renown to Reserve as one of the -leading preparatory schools of the country, Dr. Hayden received his A. B. from Oberlin in 1909 and his B. D. from Union Seminary three years later. After ordina- tion in the Presbyterian Church he spent a year in Poland. From this experience he returned to make a deep impression on the life of Cleveland, first as pastor of the Woodland Avenue Church and later the Fairmount Church. But the pastor's parish was always the world. Besides serving for over a quarter of a century as a trustee of Oberlin Col- lege, Dr, Hayden has served in the same capacity upon the Brush Foundation and the American Farm School in Solonika, Greece. Because of his warm regard for human dignity the school has always held the ideal of brotherhood within its embrace. Under his administration men of national ,reputation were frequently visitors to the campus and contributors to its educational life. Dr. and Mrs. Hayden will be leaving the campus sometime during the summer and will reside during the next year in Middle- bury, Vermont. JOHN W. HA LLOWELL Hcczdimtster f At the Commencement program today the appointment of John W. Hallowell as beadmaster of Western Reserve Academy was announced. Mr. Hallowell was born in Medford, Mass. and received his early training' at Milton Academy. He gradu- ated from Harvard with the class of 1931 and while an undergraduate held a promi- nent position in many campus activities. He was a member of the varsity hockey team and the Student Council as well as being captain of the crew. At the close of his undergraduate days the new headmaster spent a year in Euro- pean study ,and travel. Upon his return he completed a course in the Harvard Busi- ness School and was graduated with a Mas- ter's degree in 1934. Returning to the educational field in 1935, Mr. Hallowell became a member of the Groton faculty as well as a member of its coaching staff, remaining there until 1942 when lie entered the navy as a lieutenant. After training at the Navy Air Combat Intelligence School, Quonset Point, R. I., Mr. Hallowell became a member of the training' staff there. He subsequently served as Air Combat Intelligence Officer on the staff' of Task Force 38, a part of Ad- miral Halsey's Third Fleet. For this serv- ice in the decisive days of the war he was granted the Legion of Merit and was pro- moted to the rank of Lieutenant Com- mander. Since his discharge Mr. Hallowell has been Assistant Dean of Freshmen and In- structor in English at Harvard College.

Reardon Memories Yes, our years at Reserve are over, but not forgotten. The day-June 9, 1946- for which we have worked four years has finally arrived. What does the future hold in store for us-the army, college, work? This is immaterial. Vivid in our memories on this our last day at Reserve are the small and large things the class of '46 has witnessed. When we arrived four years ago, we came amid a tumult caused by the restrictions of war. New masters came as others went to war. We watched the stars on the service flag grow in number, the Interstate league suspended, the houseparty aban- doned and food rationed. To the list of casualties we saw added the name, Harlan N. Wood. Our senior year was a year of peace, and a year of return to normalcy. University School was beaten for the first time in three years in football, the houseparty re- sumed, the Interstate league cup in track retained, the tug-o'-war won for the second time, and the first Commencement held in peace for a period of four years. They were the big things that happened during our too short stay at Reserve. We shall remember them always, but along with the "written history" of the school there will remain in our memory familiar details: scrubbing sophomore walk in our freshman year, meeting Brums Brumovitch through Chuck Critchfield, recalling our last days with Keith White our sophomore year, and the same year hailing the arrival of a Bos- tonian, a resident of Cincinnati, a Scottish lad and the boy destined to win the Har- vard National Scholarship Award, the soft- ball league captured by the boys of C. C., "borrowing" ice cream under the leadership of C. B. Roush, reading George Vaught'S "Without Reserves", driving from U. S. in the old truck with only four cylinders thanks to Bob Garfield, watching Dave Hollinger study French in Chapel, chatting with Dr. Hayden, and Stu Leeb's directing of the school spirit through successful years. Reserve will always live on in our memories and, even though we are absent from Reserve, Reserve will always be pres- ent with us.

In the first place, don't accept the posi- tion unless you're the sacrificing kind. Take my case. Right now my college recommendation runs thus: "The candi- date has the required number of credits fthree in photo lab, four in wood shop, two in typing, four in Cutler Hall dining' hall flower arranging, and three in Life ma- gazine research. He also took biologyl. His stay at Reserve has been filled with many activities, witness those given under his picture in the annual: Commando Ob- stacle course, Waste-Paper Pickup, Kitchen Magic List, Commencement Marching Practice, Sophomore Walk Scrubbing, and Senior tug-o'-war Foothold Digger. Up to his senior year he was destined for some great college. Alas, however, he took up writing on the RECORD, thereby showing his true colors. Therefore, we of the executive committee fMessrs. Albert, Art Smith, Harley and Theibertj are sorry to say that our hero is unfit to enter col- lege next fall, or any fall-or any college." But after a year of strict censorship with masters prostrate at your feet plead- ing to be excluded from the column, you will have the chance. I have to speak up for the downtrodden, to defend with equal vigor the rights and privileges of those victims of free enterprise who-but, officer, my converts like to listen to me! What will I miss after I've left? Natur- ally, I'll miss walking at midnight with Hollinger and inhaling the cool night air. I'll miss leaning against the piano, sipping coffee and singing our version of "Hail. University." I'll miss treading the leaf- strewn Evemere woods during intermis- sions. I suppose you think it mattered parents whether I got into college ceived a signed diploma. Nosirree. They there? to my or re- didn't mind a bit. See that over That's my graduation present. Runs like 13 charm. Goes fast, too, without using hardly any oil. Notice the metal work and the shiny wheels. The best thing about it, though, is the genuine leather Wristband. Well, you know how it is- us alumni got more important things on our mind. Be- sides, Thatch and I have a date with Mamie's convertible, so I'll say so long- long, that is. goat ton the 0Qeconcl There will be those that 'will try to tell you that the boys who graduate today have looked forward to this occasion for many years. Don't believe them for a minute! It's all propaganda. Any person who would tell you such a fable must have thought you looked innocent or noticed an ear of corn on your person, for almost anybody who has been around Reserve for any length of time knows that the graduating class is looking forward to the Senior "Picnic", It has become almost a tradition here to acquire a passion for picnics. Starting in on the very day a boy arrives, the school has so many picnics for each student that he soon finds he can't live without them. Each year this passion grows and is cul- tivated. As a result, when. a boy reaches his senior year he attends most of the affairs like the track team picnics, the base- ball picnic, the prefect picnic, the honor roll picnic, the honorable mention picnic, Local 803 picnic and many others. But no picnic is more eagerly awaited than the senior picnic after graduation? I am told that parents anxious for the safety of their offspring have not been en- couraged by the fact that the school is not sponsoring this affair. That is perfectly understandable. Having seen the boys at picnics for quite some time, it realizes with what enthusiasm the boys indulge in eat- ing potato salad, sandwiches, baked beans and Eskimo pies. The peanut butter sand- wich eating of one James Roush has gained national recognition, as witnessed by the fact that Sheriff Robert L. fBobl Smith has sent an armed force to protect a ship- ment of Casandra Colopy's Creamery Canapes which has to pass near Newell's Nest later today. They may be telling mothers to keep their children ofi' the streets of Cleveland tonight, but that has nothing to do with our harmless little sen- ior frolic. The mixed doubles division of the domino tournament and the men's sin- gles of the chess tourney will highlight the evening as a swell class gets together for the last time to spend a few hours of innocent merriment in the country. Spring Captains Elected The captains of the spring sports were announced last Saturday at the Dads' Club Dinner. Corky Phillips was selected to captain the track team in mid-season and was a. major fac- tor in the team's great improvement toward the end of the year. Tom Clarke, first singles man, was chosen captain of the tennis squad. Co-cap- tains were elected for the baseball team, left fielder Tom Allchin sharing the honors with second baseman Dave Nicholson. Congratulations to the athletic leaders at Reserve! 1 Juneg, 1946 RESERVE RECORD Page129 I02 Fathers Visit Reserve For Dads' Day Celebration The annual Father and Son Banquet held at Reserve last Saturday brought 102 Dads to take part in the festivities. Although the baseball game was cancelled because of rain, the program continued as planned fol- lowing a senior victory in the tug of war. After a delicious chicken dinner, Mr. Hyde, the president of the Dads' Club, wel- comed the Dads and introduced the speak- ers. Mr. Shepard first gave the treasurer's report, stating that there was a balance of nearly S2000 in the treasury. The newly elected officers of the club were next announced. They included: Mr. E. D. Howard from Clevelandg Dr. K. B. Weidenthal from Hudson, Mr. D. C. Mell from Akron, Dr. R. A. Breckenridge and Mr. M. B. Jones from the country at large. It was also announced that an artist has been commissioned to paint Dr. Hayden's portrait. Also recounted in the business part of the meeting was the bargain pur- chase of a B-29 airplane engine which ar- rived at Reserve Wednesday for fathers and sons to tinker with in the future. Mr. Melcher read a resolution commend- ing Dr. Hayden's contribution to the his- tory of the Academy. The resolution was unanimously passed by a rising vote of those present. Mr. Wilson, president of the board of trustees, concluded by making a report to the group of Dr. Hayden's prog- ress, and announcing that he had been elevated to the position of headmaster emeritus. In an executive meeting held after the banquet, oflicers for the following year were elected. They were: Mr. J. M. Lin- forth, presidentg Dr. R. A. Breckenridge, vice presidentg Dr. K. B. Weidenthal, sec- retaryg Mr. R. C. Shepard, treasurer. When the business was concluded, Mr. Theibert took the floor to award letters to the boys who have distinguished them- selves in varsity sports this spring. Those who received the Academy R in baseball were: Allchin, co-capt.g Nicholson, co- capt.3 Mosher, Rogers, Hollinger, Sullivan, Shepard, Critchfield, Dewey, John Miller, Nichols, and Wattleworth, manager. Those who earned their letters in tennis were: Clarke, capt.g Rabe, Austen, Vaught, Mc- Combe, J. Brown, Cleminshaw, and Ayers. Coach Mickel awarded R's to the boys who earned them in track. They were: Phil- lips, capt.3 Howard, Joslyn, Nesbitt, Has- brouck, Ryan, H. Williams, Austen, Pierce, Roush and Boone, manager. Jack Graney, the sports announcer, fol- lowed the presentation of these awards with an interesting talk on baseball, in- cluding his amusing trip to play ball in Japan. The evening was concluded with motion pictures of the 1945 world series between the Detroit Tigers and the Chi- cago Cubs. All present agreed that this was the best celebration in many a year. The response of the Dads to the work of the school is heartening to the administration. Prizes for Outstanding Achievements Are Presented at Commencement Service Left to right: Jim Roush, Stu Loeb, Terry Gai-rigrm, Spud Milligan, Tom Clarke, Herb Gleason, Wink Hoygc Today, on the occasion of the graduation of the class of 1946 from Western Reserve Academy, recognition is accorded those seniors who have by the example of their loyalty and leadership done most for their school. The Robinson prize, granted annually to the senior "who during his entire stay at Western Reserve Academy has made the greatest progress physically, mentally and morally," is awarded this year to Wilburt L. Haggerty. "Wink", as he is known to his classmates, is a varsity letterman in football, and wrestling and has recently been elected to to membership in Cum Laude. David Nicholson, president of the school Council and member of the varsity football, basketball and baseball squads, is the win- ner of the Bicknell prize, which is awarded each year to the student "who has been the greatest influence in promoting loyalty to the school, good manners and morals, hon- esty and fair play." Winner of the 1946 Reserve athletic cup is James Roush, letterman of the football and track squads and state wrestling cham- pion in the 165-pound class. The following boys are recognized by the headmaster as those "who have been of the most assistance to him personally dur- ing the year in maintaining the spirit and rty and Dave Nicholson. highest quality morale and citizenship on the campus": Stuart Loeb--Hprefect, cheerleader and member of the varsity swimming squad.

Alex has been recently chosen by his classmates to the presidency of the class of '49. He has been a member of thc ,swimming team during the winter term yand is a promising pole vaulter in track. Seniors Make lnterstate League Flags Class Gill: In view of the fact that next year will see an even more active athletic season in the Interstate League, the Graduating Class of 1946 decided to present as their class gift the flags of each of the five schools in the league. When there is an Inter- state League football game or track meet, the Hag of the visiting school will be fiown. Page 130 RESERVE RECORD June9,1Q46 Last fall when Dr. Hayden became ill and it was known that he would be incapacitated for the rest of the year, I felt every con- fidence that our seniors would accept their share of the increased responsibility which misfortune had made it necessary for all of us to assume. They did so, willingly and effectively, and the steady, quality per- formance of the student body was due in no small measure to their leadership. Cer- tainly no class in recent years has been more interested in the welfare of the school than the Class of '46. We wish them "noth- ing but the best"g they deserve it. Ralph McGill, Acting Headmaster. r guns My Friends of '46: I am glad to speed you on your way only because I know that your time has come to go. Consulting my feelings, I should like to keep you on campus for several years more, but that cannot, should not be. You must continue your good work elsewhere. You have added much happiness to mV life during the last four years for you have given much of yourself to the school. You have not hesitated to be friendly in and out of the classroomg you have made a contri- bution to Reserve which we who remain shall not soon forget. You can truly say, "Quorum magna pars fui", whenever you recall your prep-school days. I feel the warm confidence that you will remember us with as much joy as we shall remember you. Harlan R. Parker, House Master, Carroll Cutler. To the Class of 1946: For four years you have been the mem- bers of the Academy Group. During the past year you have accepted the opportuni- ties for leadership in undergraduate afairs and have exercised this responsibility with sound judgment and excellent good lsense. The faculty deeply appreciates your lead- ership. , Our great hope is that the Academy has given you sound mental and physical pow- ers and has afforded you a healthy and natural religious sense. Thus fortified you will make your way successfully in a world torn by strife and envy. We shall miss you on the campus when the school reassembles in September. R. B.

The machine shop is now newly equipped with all modern machines of the best kind bought from the government surplus with money made in three years of war work by Academy students. The pur- chase of this new equipment, costing about Social Season Ends With Successful Prom Last evening will long be remembered at Western Reserve Academy as the date of one of the best senior proms in the school's history. We hereby give credit where it is most certainly due by thanking Mr. Cleminshaw, chairman of the Social Com- mittee, for the complete success of the whole affair. Arriving around two o'clock, the fair young maidens were shown to their respec- tive rooms at the ancient and honorable Athenaeum. After the various porters had recovered from the stupendous weight of the girls' baggage, the afternoon pro- gram began. All responsibility for the afternoon's festivity was in the hands of the Junior class and was brought to a very successful close by the special Nat Howard Show in Cutler Hall at 4:30. This began with the award of the treasure hunt prize, followed by some very gasp-inspiring magic on the part of the versatile Mr. Howard, and concluded with a brand new quiz pro- gram entitled: "It Is Profitable to Be Stupid." Before dinner the boys and their guests were received by Mrs. Joel B. Hayden, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph McGill, Mr. and Mrs. Harlan Parker, and Tom Allchin and Joy Bailey. At 9:00 the dancing began in the gym to the music of Harold Nelson's orchestra. The building was decorated with over one hundred flags for the occasion. At 1:00 all the fond farewells were bid, and before long Hudson's usual silence returned once more. 310,000 at the greatly reduced price avail- able to educational institutions, was made possible by the work of over 100 boys averaging an attendance of 218 times a week for two school years on a subcontract with Bardons Sz Oliver, Inc., machine tool builders of Cleveland, and for one school year on a subcontract with the Wright Tool and Forge Co. of Barberton, O. Mr. Tepper will be glad to have all boys interested in precision machinery come to the shop and look over the recent addi- tions. Cups, Books and Fork Gifts in Annual Revel Tuesday night saw the annual awards presented to students, athletes and good fellows. Teb first presented the Nash trophy to Pat Mosher, varsity competitor in three major sports. This was followed by the presentation of the Green-White Cup to Green President Charlie Critchfield and marked the end of a three-year rule of the Whites. Mr. McGill awarded the annual book prizes to Walter Brassert and George Wil- liams of the Freshman class and to Barney Engholm and Marshall Ernstene of the Sophomores. The Senior Will was greeted with rounds of laughter and applause and Jim Miller was frequently interrupted while the aud- ience appreciated a well directed barb. In a suitable ceremony Charles Critchfield passed the pitchfork on to Dave Olsen and Mr. Roundy presented a book on the art of the profession to 'Mr. Ellis, who read suitable passages from the tome and prom- ised it to worthy hands next year. te- f 4 3 gy' LL 4 ilfvfriiiwif 'its W' 7 072 'QI' id n ff Eva- 'iry ll 'f : " .4 Z " 4 wx t '- A " 'xo t' . o l.,-"' 14 M ..- Look Mama, Look! There goes our 34000 wonder! Yale Chaplain Conducts 1946 Baccalaureate Service The 1946 Baccalaureate Service, which took place last Sunday night, was conduct- ed by the chaplain of Yale University, Dr. Sidney Lovett, who has lately been travel- ing and lecturing on behalf of War-ravaged Europe. "Doing the Right Thing in the Right Wayu was the topic of his sermon. Dr. Lovett began his talk by suggesting a great paradox existing today. The world is full of good people, but it is nevertheless not getting any better. Illustrated by John Morley's statement, "It is not enough to do goody one must do it in the right way," it becomes clear that we must learn the technique of following this advice if we wish to advance the cause of right in the world. Our conscience is often our guide in accomplishing this. The speaker then furnished three clues to help us in doing the right thing in the right way. The first clue, he said, consists of our exerting caution and care so that decisions may become actions. A careless word may endanger the essential righteousness of our original intention, and therefore, "to think it over first" is of the utmost importance. Never, under any circumstances, should we allow the lines of communication be- tween ourselves and our fellow men to be broken: this was the second clue offered by Dr. Lovett. No matter what rank, reli- gion or race the other individual may be, we should treat him as a fellow human being. Finally, the third clue suggested was the necessity for our screening out selfish per- sonal ambition. We should avoid arrogance, conceit and advertisement of our good deeds. This same theme' can be applied to any life-private, national and internation- al. The world can only be rebuilt by bet- ter people who know how to do the right thing in the right way-a knowledge which no person in history had more completely than Jesus. Chicken, Bottle of 'Scotch' Prizes at Farewell Picnic Last Thursday evening at about six o'clock a picnic dinner was given for the 'school by the senior class. This party was one of the new contributions of the seniors and as usual was full of surprises for everyone present. There were dinner prizes for those holding the winning num- bers. For the lucky woman there was a chicken waiting-yes, a week old chick to be fostered into maturity by some doting another. For the winning master there was a bottle of the best "Scotch" aged for some 'fifty years-well, not really Scotch but the best substitute possible, a bottle with the picture of that revered master by the same name. Such were the surprises at this gala affair, and there were really quite a few. After a typical picnic supper there was some informal singing around the campfire after which the evening closed in time for study hour at eight o'clock. June 9, 1946 School Hears Mr. Clemensliaw In Annual Senior Chapel Senior Chapel, the last and perhaps most significant morning chapel service of the entire school year, took place on Friday, May 31. Tom Allchin, senior class presi- dent, directed the proceedings and began the chapel program by introducing Mr. Russell H. Cleminshaw, Reserve's popular physics instructor, who was chosen this year by the graduating class to address the school. Mr. Cleminshaw, who last spoke in Sen- ior Chapel five years ago, made his fare- well address to the senior class in the form of a humorous "Physics report," simi- lar to those used in his classes and en- titled: "Stresses and Strains of the Class of 1946". He stated that the first essen- tial of a physics report is the Object, which in this case was "To make a critical study of the class of 1946 and to find stresses and strains". Apparatus, he continued, is the second essential and listed nine "pieces of apparatus" characterized by features of school life. The third essential, he stated, is Testing Material, in the form of the sen- ior class, with its fifty members. The Pro- cedure to be used was a thorough testing of the said materials with the said appara- tus to all forms of the enumerated stresses and strains. Last of all, Mr. Cleminshaw reported on the Conclusions to be reached -namely, that the class had reacted to all "stresses" in a most satisfactory way, had kept its main job always in mind and had furnished extremely good leadership to- ward the furthering of school spirit and harmony. Following Mr. Cleminshaw's interesting and amusing talk, Council President Dave Nicholson handed over the reins of the school council to next year's president, Bill Lindsay. In his turn Tom Allchin, senior class president, transferred his position to Glenn Carter, who took control of the rest of the morning's proceedings. Glenn con- gratulated the seniors as a whole for their fine record throughout the year and wished them the best of luck in their coming col- lege educations. The chapel service ended with the tradi- tional change of seats, the seniors ascend- ing to seats of honor in the balcony and each successive class taking the former seats of the class above it. After the sing- ing of the Alma Mater all four classes marched from morning chapel for the last time in the school year. Underclass Elections During the last week of school the fresh- man and sophomore class met to elect of- ficers for the coming year. The freshmen chose Alex Post as their leader for next year with Tom Swanston and Jack Tim- mis under him. Next year's junior class president will be Larry Stifel. Chuck Cory and Larry Siddall will serve the class as vice president and secretary-treasurer respectively. RESERVE RECORD Page 133 Repairing, Designing ancl Building Constitute A Full Year for Mr. Moos' Industrial Arts Pupils Left to right: Brassart, Tarr and Laub work with. the present, past and fufure This year under the able instruction of Mr. Moos, the woodshop has seen many varied activities ranging from the repair of century old clocks to the building of bases for jet-propelled engines. About twenty clocks of the old Terry Patent shelf type have been renovated. Some of these were made entirely from wood except for certain pins and hands. With careful adjustment these clocks keep very good time. Reservites have also repaired many an- tique chairs, some of which date to the early part of the nineteenth century. Stu- dents have learned about the'difi'erent styles of furniture and have gained an under- standing of the historical background of the early Ohio homes. Some boys have de- veloped an interest in a hobby that will probably last throughout their lives. In sharp contrast with antique work has been the construction of model airplanes. Another popular project was the making of bulletin boards and frames. Many old vic- trolas have been reclaimed. With the old varnish removed and new finish supplied, the overhauling of the mechanical parts has Miss Beale to Retire The RECORD is sorry to announce the resignation of one of the most competent persons on the staff of the Academy. Miss Grace Beale, R. N., who has been a nurse here for nine years, is retiring. Miss Beale graduated from the Univer- sity Hospital in Cleveland, O., in 1903. She came here in 1936 and since then has been a faithful and steady worker of the Infirmary. Miss Beale told us that she will long re- call her days at the Academy, and while we she deserves shall all miss her sincerely, this rest after so many years of competent and devoted service. She plans to go to Wyoming this fall, but she is not sure whether she will remain there or go to Florida. She went on to say that she has been extremely happy here at Reserve and has thoroughly enjoyed working with the boys. She is sorry to be leaving, and we share her feeling of regret at departure. served to permit many to enjoy music de- spite the radio ban. With the first shipment of aluminum since the war, a crop of bowls, trays, and coasters of all sizes and shapes have ap- peared. Unfortunately, the metal crafts are in a bad state because ofthe critical shortage of materials. During the past year, because of the shortage of both metals and lumber, it was found necessary to invent work which did not require the use of new materials. For- tunately, Mr. Moos turned to the restora- tion of antiques. In addition to solving a hard problem, it has provided much fun for students. Juniors Swim Hockey Pond In Annual Tug of War As a feature of last Saturday's Dads' Day ceremonies the Juniors and Seniors held their annual tug of war. After brief' pep talks and warming up exercises the two teams headed for the hockey pond where the contest was to begin at five. The seniors on the north side and the Juniors in the south position spent a few minutes digging themselves into the muck and mud that had accumulated after a day and a half of rain, and then the pull began. . The gun went off promptly at five amid the cheers of the many Dads who had gath- ered to see their sons sweat and toil to avoid the threatening swim in Reservc's tiny lake. For the first few minutes no one seemed to make much headway. However, the favored Seniors soon gained their full momentum, and from then on the class of '47 was behind the eight ball. The gang from Carroll Cutler and North, sporting a hundred and fifteen-pound weight advantage, soon had the Junior lead- ofi' men in the pond, and a few minutes later the Junior anchorman also plunged into the water. When the Seniors saw they had all their opponents pulled into the hockey pond, a mighty roar went up and the tug of war was over. The Juniors swam across the pond to congratulate their conquerors, and both teams went in tired but happy after a well-fought pull. Page 134 RESERVE RECORD June 9,1946 GreensWinIntrdmurulCup,306-280 Whites Rout Junior Greens, Wehr Stars On Wednesday, May 29, the Junior Whites defeated the Junior Greens in a wild and woolly baseball game, 11 to 4. Pat Mosher, the Green coach, chose Sid Conger to go to the mound for his team while Tom Allchin picked Larry Wehr to. hurl for the Whites. Conger was plagued with wildness and he gave up ten unearned runs in the first two innings. These were results of his numer- ous walks with a few errors and hits sprinkled among them. Huey Jae relieved Sid and gave the Whites but one run, which was another unearned one in the sixth. Wehr's slow ball held the Greens in check very effectively except for the third inning at which time the Greens rapped out three solid hits for two earned runs. Because Wehr became wild and gave up single marks ers in the fourth and sixth, Sonny Betz moved to the hill in the seventh to set the Greens down with no hits. Greens rr,,,,,s, 0021010-464 Whites,1 ,.,s.. 2800010-11 7 2 Green Truckmen Win 2 Meets, Whites I The Greens captured the spring track meet by winning the Intermediate and Sen- ior contests while the Whites'won only in the Junior division. JUNIOR MEET: The Whites Won their only victory in the Junior division, where Wehr and Bruce Rogers shared top honors in bringing the victory to their team. Rog- ers won the 100 and 220-yard dashes, and Wehr won the 120'yard low hurdles and the quarter-mile, in which an attempt to join hands and tie for first with Rogers failed when Wehr's chest crossed the line too soon. Both boys ran on the winning 880'-yard res lay teams. With Siddall as the Greens' only double winner, the final Junior score was 5915 to 4424. INTERMEDIATE MEET: In addition, the Greens won the intermediate contests by the score of 68-49. Gerhauser, Gordon and Connors won seven Firsts and ran in both winning mile and half-mile relays. Noble and Ober earned two of the Whites' firsts by winning the quarter-mile and low hurdles respectively. SENIOR MEET: Led by the sopho- mo1'es' star dash man, Daily, the senior Greens gained 73 points to the White total of 45. The Whites' 880 and 440-yard dash- man, Hobie Cleminshaw, and their hurdler, Graham, were not enough to stop the Green trackmen. Daily was high point man for the Senior meet by winning the 100 and 220-yard dashes and broad jump, and by running on the winning 880-yard relay team. Intermediate Greens Take Final Game, 7-6 The Greens made it two out of three in the baseball series by taking the inter- mediate contest, 7-6. It was probably the most exciting of the series with both teams fighting hard right until the last out. At one time the Greens were four runs in the lead, but the Whites were able to erase the lead and come back into the running. The Whites started the scoring in the first when pitcher Heath Oliver doubled to drive in the first run. The Greens came back in their half of the first with two runs though they failed to make a hit. The runs were scored on two walks, a pair of stolen bases and infield misplays. The Whites evened things up in their half of the fourth, but again their lead was short lived. In the fourth inning Buchman doubled, driving in Garver and Wattleworth. Before the inning was over, two more runs had scored on a wild throw into center field by the catcher and an infield error. The score remained 6-2 until the White half of the sixth inning when Coach Hol- linger's team pushed across four more runs on a pair of hits and a sprinkling of errors by the Greens. In the last of the sixth Wattleworth walked, stole second and scored when the Green second baseman, Bud Ryan, drove a long triple into right center. In the first of the seventh, after two men were out, Roy Hagedorn, left fielder of the Whites, walked, stole second and third, but was put out with Dave Sheldon at bat when he ventured too far off third The White team was made up of Bill Rabe, Bill Cleminshaw, Bruce Williams, Buddy Ober, Bob Peterson, Heath Oliver, Jim Perciball, Bob Fritz, Malcolm Kennedy and Dave Sheldon. The Greens had Chuck and Frank Cory, Bob Wattleworth, Emerson Garver, Bob Breckenridge, Dick Buchman, Frank Austen, Jim Connors and Bud Ryan.

S. base- ball game on Tuesday, the seasonal Green- White games got under way on Wednesday with the baseball battle of the senior Greens and Whites. Both teams showed about equal power-or lack of it-and the contest was an extremely close and exciting exhibition of spirit, skill and yelling. Piloting the Greens was varsity pitcher Denny Sullivan, while second baseman Dave Nicholson directed the Whites. The Green battery of Doyle and Wingard opposed that of the Whites, John Miller and John Bukov- nik. Squeezing in a run in the last half of the seventh, the Greens broke a 6'6 tie to win the first of the spring series. The Whites started the scoring in the first inning when a man got on base and was scored as the result of a Green error. How- ever, the Greens retaliated in their half of the second frame with a score to tie it up. 1-1. The next two innings were profitable ones for the Greens who pounded the apple for several hits which, combined with White errors, scored two runs in both the third and fourth stanzas, while the pitching of Doyle, supported by the playing of the rest of' the team, kept the Whites from putting any men across home plate. The fifth inning found the Whites getting the range on the ball, rapping out several singles and rattling the Green nine enough to score five runs on hits and errors. A scoreless sixth put the pressure on the Greens who then were behind 6-5. After holding the Whites scoreless in the first half of the seventh, the Greens launched a hitting barrage which put Howard and Doyle on base. Phil Hartsock slapped a hot grounder down the first base line, How- ard scoring when the Whites got excited and threw the ball away, thus ending the ball game 7-6 in favor of the Greens.

Tom Allchin with his contagious grin and casual manner was one of the most popular boys in the graduating class. His record of four straight years on the council and three out of four years as class president easily illustrates this fact. A math and physics whiz, "Ioyboy" was the brains of the infamous Allchin-Hollinger-Critchfield-Vaught room combination in C. C. Also an outstanding athlete, Tom's straight throws from third made many an out during baseball season. In his senior year, "Allch" also won letters in football and basketball, proving himself to be a sticky-fingered end and a fast-moving forward. K. FRANK AUSTEN Who's going over? 817 Delaware Avenue Akron, Ohio Amherst Basketball letter I: "R" Club I: Study Hall Prefect I. Although the smallest man on the team, Frank played varsity football, narrowly missing his letter as a left half. During the winter term his deadly pivot shots were a great help to the basketball team. In the spring "Engle" fulfilled the promise he showed during his junior year as a hurdler. Frank is known as one of the hardest workers in the senior class in whatever he undertakes: sports, studies, or physics experiments: and he has been successful in each. He is perhaps the only boy in the senior class who has smashed up two of his family's cars at the same time. IONATHAN S. AYERS But, I.

Ion held the dubious honor of being the football squad's most banged up and bandaged player. His long series of injuries was crowned on the week before the U. S. game when he plunged during a practice drill through the line into the goal post. He was on the tennis squad in the spring. It is rumored that Ion's main ambition is to spend his life cruising through temperate climates on his yacht. GEORGE T. BOYCE Let's wrestle 122 'Everett Avenue Akron 2, Ohio Ohio Wesleyan Record Staff III: Band III. "Theodore," echoed a loud voice down the hall, and soon, running along with a look in his eye resembling a frightened rabbit, appeared 100 pounds of fighting fury. Ted seemed to love rooming with big football players and received many beatings from them: for, alter meeting the challenges of Iudge Brewer for a year, he took on the big job of combating Paul Shepard. Ted was truly one of the better clowns of the class and was always able to secure a laugh or two from even the most serious minded people. "Grubby", as Scotch fondly called him, never had any time to himself: he had to spend so much time on biology which left him in a constant state of nervous exhaustion. ROGER PHILLIP BRADY I'm sticking to the union 494 East Ford Avenue Barberton. Ohio Case Record Staff III. II: Band IV, III. Rag came to Reserve four years ago from Barberton. Ohio. For two years he worked on the RESERVE RECORD, leaving after he had obtained the position of Associate Editor. He was chosen as an alternate Prefect for the senior year. For two years he was a coach in tumbling during the winter term and was last fall the captain of a championship league foot- ball team. In the spring "Diamond Iim" went out for track, running the 440. Roger held the dubious honor of being the only roommate Dick Howell ever had who managed to stay with the class and graduate. Reservites will remember his room for its constant stock of food. They will remember him for his "warped" sense of humor and his peculiar outlook. THOMPSON MORGAN CLARKE Bananas 15105 Lake Avenue Lakewood, Ohio Harvard Tennis letter III, II, I: "R" Club II, I: Senior Annual Staff. I: Prefect I: Cum Laude II, I: Mugwumps I: Book Prize III, II. Tom Clarke came to Reserve as a sophomore. and it was not long before he distinguished himself as one of the most brilliant boys in school. He has led his class scholastically since he came and was one of the three boys to be elected to the Cum Laude Society at the end of his junior year. Tom won his tennis letter in the spring of his first year at Reserve, and since then he has won two more letters in that sport and become one of the most dependable players on the squad. Chosen as a prefect for the Athenaeum last spring. Tom has been respected, and well liked by a great many boys in the school probably because of his extreme modesty in spite of the rather difficult position he has constantly held as scholastic leader of the school. DOUGLAS P. COLLINS Change the station 4135 Windsor Road Youngstown, Ohio Cornell Few people know what went on in the mind of this quiet unassuming young man from the "Smoky City" He was a hard worker but he believed that "all work and no play makes lack a dull boy". In any North Hall activity Doug was always in the front lines, but when there was no putz organized. he satisfied himself with listening to the radio, preferably the slow and sweet music. Last fall he played football on Brady's league team and this spring went out for baseball. Doug's social inclinations slowly increased as the year progressed. He has been a student of Reserve since his junior year.

Most of his work leaning toward the literary field, Dan put in four years of hard work on the RECORD, earning the co-editorship in his senior year. His humor columns and editorials were widely read and appreciated. However, "Dapper Dan" did not wholly confine his interests to the paper. He was a member of the Glee Club for four years and in his senior year he sang with the octet. Dan was also elected a prefect and did much to hold the Athenaeum on its level keel. His performance as left half on the soccer team won him his letter and membership in the "R" Club. IN-' W' r Newt CHARLES V. CRITCHFIELD W. V.

Why, Brooms Abrumavitch . . ."l For these sterling efforts "Critch" was tenderly awarded a trophy . . . with a long handle and four prongs. An able athlete, "Chuck" took time out from his favorite pastime long enough to earn two stripes in soccer and the catcher berth on the baseball team. ROBERT ARTHUR DEWEY 1sn't she mellow?

Bob held down the lett guard position on the football team this year. despite the tact that he was one of the lightest men on the squad. He nar- rowly missed his letter last year in wrestling, but after winning his first meet this year he gave the sport up in favor of handball. After two years on the squad "Addy" was out tor a baseball letter in the spring. He spends his winter vacations at what he calls skiing at Lake Placid and ventures into the Canadian bush in the summer time. As a prefect Bob has the record for smelling out the most putzes on the third floor of Cutler.

"Vahsity" was a mainstay on the basketball team during junior and senior years, using his overflowing energy to advantage. In the tall, he was the terror ot league football. lust the opposite oi most Reserve dancers, Tom sat out the slow ones but really enjoyed himself when it was time to jitterbug.

Proving that he could be an athlete as well as wrestling and basketball managers, "Fungus" was a member of the soccer squad in his junior and senior years. The third and last of the Fletcher boys to graduate from Reserve, Angus has constantly remained on the Honor Roll although his companions in C.C. still wonder when he does his studying. For his college life Angus threatened to journey back across the Atlantic to see if all Irish lassies are as pretty as Patty Lee. , lll li-tislvuq ulllflw Ford, Chryfalv-r Agree to UAW Raxlsf MSW ft lf' on 1 1' 7 F S . ....

The test for a sense of humor at Reserve is to see how long anyone can listen to "Rudolph" without laughing. The undisputed funnyman of the class since he came in his junior year, Bobby will be remembered for his knickers, playing Humoresque on the piano, the skit at the Dad's Club meeting last spring. and that menace to pedestrians, Mamma Brown's hearse. It's hard to think of Bob without his roommate, lim Miller, for together they kept the whole school in good spirits. Woe be to the man who crosses this pair, for he will be branded forever as a "Leech".

He acquired that name by persistently being "Champ" on several math and physics tests. One would think that with all the brains and athletic ability Terry had. he'd come out on the short end of good looks, but girls point to him and cry-"Why, he looks just like Ioe Reserve"-key chain and all. Actually his success in sports was due more to fight and deter- mination than to skill. And in questions of school policy, fellows used to go to Terry instead of "Scotch". A "shrewdie", it is still a wonder to the class ot '46 how any boy could make so much money and yet be so honest. HERBERT PARSONS GLEASON Not in Boston 38 Atlantic Avenue Cohasset.

For the past three years we have had an explorer in our midst. Herb set out from Boston in September, 1943, to explore the mid-west and its Indians' "Civilization any place but Boston? Don't be silly!"-and has remained with us ever since. He has made us less savage and crude, has given us some idea of culture and good conduct, and has been at the same time the best of friends and the most interesting of companions. And all in Ohio slang with a Boston accent! Herb will long be remembered tor the example he has set both to the upper and lower classes of how to be a "good guy" and, at the same time. earnest and serious about studies, the school, and this very Annual. And don't say people from Boston are hard to get to know. They're not-- after a formal introduction. ROY LANGE HAGEDORN We were doing fifty 19730 Roslyn Drive Rocky River 16, Ohio Valparaiso The general impression ot I-Iaggy seems to be that of a wild-driving, sentimental-record enthusiast. This is, moreover, quite accurate. "Baldy", whose hair is either almost shaved off or else is growing in a spear, had quite a time with his schoolwork, especially German. Roy was on the wrestling team during his senior year and on the track team during the two years he was at Reserve. He and his roommate, Iack Simons, did their best in trying to keep up last year's reputation tor noise on the fourth floor of North. Great things may be expected of Roy during his years at the co-ed college which he will attend. Wm WILBURT EAGLE I-IAGGERTY We don't have slaves Mount Pleasant Plantation Zachary, Louisiana M. I. T.

Like so many nicknames, that ot "Winky" is completely unsuited to its owner. Wilburt Haggerty, the strong man of the senior class, has been at Reserve for four years. He was on the wrestling squad during his freshman year and since that time has made quite a name for himself in the sport. He was awarded his letter during his sophomore year and continued the same procedure thereafter. Football, his other sport, brought him a letter in his senior year. As a freshman and sophomore Winky was a class officer, and he was made a Prefect in the Athenaeum for his senior year. Always reliable and sincere, Winky has been liked by everyone since he first came to Reserve. DOUGLAS CHURCH HASBROUCK Aus My tractor is out of gas RD No. 3 Hudson, Ohio Iowa State Football letter I: Track letter II: "R" Club II, I: Study Hall Prefect I: Rally Band IV: Alumni Award I. Doug has succeeded by his own admission in staying at Reserve for tour years without ever doing a great deal of work. Perhaps this was due to the fact that he lived in Hudson rather than at Reserve. But who would ever have suspected that quiet. unassuming Doug Hasbrouck would be able to leap over high bamboo poles and overcome strong opponents on the football field- all without a shout. The only thing we regret is that many of us haven't had much of a chance to know him well. But we all know Doug well enough to wish we'd known him better.

From away down in deep South-Cincinnati Lee says he is the true southern gentleman himself, with a "you-all" here, and a "sir" over there. If so. we have learned up here that the Southern gentleman is a very good friend and an enjoyable companion. He is extremely serious and modest about his studies and wears better looking clothes than anyone oi us. Really. the South is to be admired. For from what other spot would "you-all" find a person who takes so much unselfish pleasure in his friends' ac- complishments, holds friendship so high and consideration so dear, and keeps everybody else smiling all the time? Truly, sir, I dunno. DAVID RUSSELL HOLLINGER Betty wouldn't like it 110 Codsall Road Wolverhampton, England Purdue Football letter I: Basketball letter I: Captain I: "R" Club I: Record Staff IV, III, II, Sports editor I: Study Hall Prefect I. Dave Hollinger was the captain of the 1946 basketball team and also earned letters in football and baseball. He was sports editor ot the RECORD and Scotch's Math IV pet: but it is not tor these accomplishments that he will be fondly remembered by his classmates in later years. Three things: an ability to look perpetually "beat". an aversion to haircuts, and a girl named Betty will go down in history with "Batt" Hollinger. Frequent trips to England did nothing to his vocabulary nor his love tor Akron hamburgers.

Somewhere along about his sophomore or junior year Reserve discovered that "Brain" Howell had some muscle, a thing coveted by "brains". Wit- ness his Green and White wrestling match with By Spooner. In his senior year he worked hard as varsity soccer manager and won not only his letter, but the friendship and gratitude of a messy soccer quad. When he wasn't chewing the rag, he could usually be found adding comic relief to the bass sections of the octet, glee club, and Mugwumps in a Ierry Colonna nasal. ALAN L. HYDE There'1I be a crash next year 226 College Street Hudson, Ohio Amherst Glee Club II, I: Mugwumps I: Cum Laude I. Big Al has been a staunch supporter of league soccer for four years, booting many a ball and accompanying player away from the goal he defended. His mode ot transportation was the bicycle around the cam- pus, but he managed to get his grandmother's black Nash coupe whenever he had to go much farther than the Fine Arts Building. Last year he was assistant baseball manager and got plenty of exercise chasing fouls. Scholastically "Wingfoot" was a fiend for history and especially current events. Four years in a row he won the prize for his class in the annual Time test. For this reason he was a valuable member of the Mugwumps. In the glee club he did an amazing stunt by singing first tenor while a junior and bass his senior year. RICHARD D.

If you ever hear that call you'd better move over, because any moment you'l1 probably see Dick "Atom bomb" Kaylor hurtling over to breakfast. Although Dick is Charles Atlas' greatest rival, strangely enough the coaches never discovered his true worth until they saw him help beat U. S. in football or watched him flip his opponents around on the wrestling mats. Dick's lite at Reserve was not all "rough and tumble". Though he shattered many light bulbs and windows trying to equal Bunny Berrigan's best, he was an up and coming trumpet artist. Despite the fact that Dick never made Cum Laude, it can well be said that he has made as many Reservites smile as anyone in his class. LAWRENCE MALCOLM KENNEDY 1'm going to flunk dat 149 Bay View Avenue Great Neck, Long Island, New York Columbia Soccer II, Captain I: "R" Club II, I. Malcolm claimed that he never did any studying except before a test, and, if that is so, we wonder how he has been able to get through Reserve in two years. In the fall of 1944, Mal entered from Trinidad as a member of the freshman class, and this year he was a member of the graduating class. During both years he earned the center-forward position on the soccer team and was elected captain last fall, an honor he well deserved. Mal's ability to play soccer while barefoot will long remain a wonder. In order not to lose any of his running prowess during the winter, Mal was out for cross country. ss.

"When are you going to call Florida, Goldie?" Reserve's curiosity will not be satisfied until Polly visits our fair halls. Don was one of Mr. Pflaum's "Ec. Geog." men, and, if you don't believe it's a hard course, just ask him. As right tackle, Goldie was one of the bigger mainstays of Tebby's forward wall. During the winter term he wrestled a mean 185 pounds. Come springtime he played outfielder on the baseball team. Don took a big part in Reserve life, as shown by his selection as a Council member. a Prefect. and vice president of the senior class. "Fish" was his only known method of stopping Newel1's "bull slinging". CHARLES H. LAI-IR Shaie is president RD No. 2 Barberton, Ohio Oberlin Chuck, the Barberton boy, joined the senior class this year. He attempted to brighten life in Room 3 of North by using copious, rather heavy-handed jokes taken from books of humor. In his more serious moments, lounging on the extra cot, Chuck dreamt of becoming an undertaker. His chief academic attainments consisted of honorary "ex-math-man" in two different classes. Actually Chuck took his work seriously enough, but those first four weeks! His chief interest was music, although not exactly the Sever- ance Hall type. Although elected to the position of North Hall president, Chuck was not the kind to grasp for high honors, and he soon resigned. WILLIAM IOHN LAUB, IR.

Bill, who credits his physique to weight lifting, has never had to worry about upperclassmen because he has been bigger than all of them. I-Ie achieved his ambition by making the three plus list. Besides being one of C. C.'s study hall excused boys, his dates were probably the only girls who saw the moon and heard about the philosophy of Marx in the same night. Bill put his weight to the best advantage by being a member of the football squad in his junior and senior years. He was out for wrestling also as a senior. After hearing Mr. Waring's description of New Haven. Bill has decided to go to Yale. hoping that the girls will be taller in the East.

Ioe, the piano player. was wearing last night at the party-and "did you see the dress that girl had on?" Stuart, the little, may be a trifle short, but he can tower over you with his big, friendly personality and expansive manner, and his cheerful word. Necessary to mention, of course, is the fact that he was a cheerleader and a prefect, too. But his most important job was the maintenance of the department of good cheer. Flowers and an Oscar to him for it. X as J Q IAMES PORTER LEWIS Oh, my! East Iordan, Michigan Swarthmore Record Stall I: Senior Annual Stott I: Glee Club II.

His good friends know him to be loyal and cooperative. He is more fair-minded than most, and never quick to judge, but firm in his sup- port ot what he believes.

Bill. in his four years at Reserve, has been quite typical of Reservites, Captain ot a champion league soccer team during his junior year, he moved up to the varsity as a senior. For exercise during the winter he chose to help Mr. Habel with tumbling. He was baseball manager during his last two years at school. Iazz records and Emily Frum constituted his major extracurricular activities. Bill was amiable and pleasant throughout his stay at Reserve. and, though 'he might not be the tirst to come to mind in looking back at the class, he will always be remembered by a host ot triends. IOHN HENRY MELCHER See here, I. C. 17439 Shelburn Road Cleveland Heights 18, Ohio Yale Football manager I: "R" Club Ig Glee Club III: Record Staff I. Honest Iack was a man ot considerable girth who was never meant to live in his little hole in the wall in Carroll Cutler. In spite ot the lack of space in his abode he insisted on sharing his room with the mounted head of an antelope. His creative genius was amazing no matter where it was directed. His organizational abilities not only appeared when deviltry was atoot, but he showed great prowess as football manager with his two subordinates. A great joker, Iack enjoyed experimenting on his friends with electricity, which was one of his Iavorite extracurricular activities. Radio also interested him, and he had a little communication system with Bruce Williams. In studies lack probably did his best in history, the harder the quiz the better he enjoyed it. IAMES H.

Tiny was the strongest man but the lightest hitter on the senior discipline. He was always afraid of hurting a victim with his swing which he applied to a baseball bat in the spring. II you ever saw lim, you could easily understand why he did such a good job at left tackle last tall. His suc- cess as a Green manager came out when the Greens carried ott the honors at the close ot the winter sports season alter a weak showing last tall. Such accomplishments, however, are comparatively unimportant. Iim never had a bad word for anybody and with Garfield kept any party in a good humor. He was a square character.

Football is the favorite sport of our Erie friend. Being unable to get on the varsity squad, I. V. went out last fall to win a soccer letter as a right guard. After putting his power- ful kick behind a soccer ball for a season, he put his weight behind a baseball bat this spring to good advantage.

"Second tenors, let's try that again," and one voice would stand out par- ticularly. Not only was he in the glee club, but Spud made the octet this year. However, it is not for his singing ability that this slight but wiry blond will be remembered. Athletically, he was for two years captain ot the Soccer League All-Stars and a student coach and referee in boxing. But his name will go down in Reserve history for his untiring efforts as Co-Editor of the RESERVE RECORD and Managing Editor ot the SENIOR ANNUAL. Many new and different articles have entered those sacred pages due to his inspired genius and perseverance. His ultimate ambition? Why, to be a doctor, of course.

Strong, silent, "Columbus Dave" moved in with "Butch" Nichols last year when Dave and "Strangler" Lewis, each complaining of mental cruelty from the other, were divorced. Nes is not apt to overdo schoolwork. While others recklessly manhandle and mar out texts, he merely glances through the pages of his books evenings between eight and ten. Dave has, however, made a real contribution to Reserve in athletics, tor he has been a valuable member of the swimming team since his entrance. He has also been on the track team as a discus thrower and dash man and a captain in league lootball. IAMES OTIS NEWELL He's my grandfather, too Cottage Hill Farm, Chardon Road Willoughby, Ohio Cornell Soccer letter II. I: "R" Club Il, I: Record Staff IV, III: Prefect I. "Otie" broke a record at Reserve by being at Scotch's table more times than any other living man: and there are still those who claim he should have been awarded the pitchfork. "Shorty" was upholding the tradition of Reserve senior classes by going with "that" girl, and according to Skip, "It's just the cat's paw." After booting a mean soccer ball at the center half position, "Otie" moved on to instructor in commando boxing and played softball in the spring. As a prefect on the third floor of Cutler, Skip had the longest list ofyleaves on the prefect staff and went to the movie every Wednesday night. He will long be remembered by the "boys around the corner".

"A list of committees will be posted" the phrase itself discloses that the speaker is "Reverend" Nicholson. Aside from his student activities. numerous indeed, Nick shared the job of handling laundry and dry cleaning with Roush and traded off taking Chapel service with Messrs, Waring and Parker. Nick was constantly writing letters: so much so that the postage he expended for correspondence to the state of Iowa alone reached a "fabulous figure." Nick carried a tough schedule all four of his years at the Academy but still had time for the various varsity sports in which he excelled, including football, basketball and baseball. ROY A.

"Let me try a new hold on ya" is the best introduction to this little bundle of dynamite who has broken up more study sessions in C.C. than anyone in the history of the old dorm. Always "in there fighting" in bull ses- sions, Buddy was an endless source of information for all O. T. S, admirers. Small but scrappy, Roy was one of the bulwarks of the wrestling team and held his own on the football squad against fellows twice his size. After another year at Reserve, Roy hopes to go to Ohio State to start his college education. We honestly pity any college senior who mistakes Roy for an unsuspecting freshman.

Sometimes a little hazy on math IV but always up on his female com- panions was "Corky". one of the town boys in the senior class. He was ever on his toes athletically, getting his letter in soccer twice, going out for cross-country in the winter, and becoming a dashing trackman in the spring running in the quarter and half-mile events. Several times he was out of school to recover from some turnover in his women folk. In the afternoon and evening he often furnished transportation to Kent in his Buick for Bob Wattleworth and Bob Ioslyn. MAC DONALD H. PIERCE, IR. Corky and! . , . Box 145 Hudson, Ohio Denison Soccer letter ll, I: "R" Club II, I. . Mac was as good a right wing in soccer as this school ever had. Not only our boys but our opponents recognized this fact. However, his ath- letic prowess did not end there. In the winter he went out in cross- country running to get in shape tor the spring track season when he ran in the quarter and half-mile races. It, ot course, tollows that Mac was an active member in good standing of the "R" Club. Every so often his station wagon would appear in the evening in iront ot Cutler Hall when an "R" Club meeting was to take place. Living about a mile from the school, Mac commuted each day. His good-natured disposition was always welcome wherever he went. THATCHER WILLIAM REA, IR. Quit slinging it, Iohn 1418 Longfellow Avenue Detroit 6, Michigan Amherst There was never anyone at Reserve by the name of Thatcher Rea. for he was always called affectionately Cap or sometimes Halt-thatched. The home ot the Detroit Tigers blessed us with Cap as a junior atter which he made his foster home in Akron where he met several rather interesting people. Last fall Cap was a captain in league soccer, and this spring he went out for tennis. A very conscientious worker, Cap always managed to get his homework done in order that he might fully enjoy his weekends and Saturday leaves in Akron, which, he says. is not half as nice as "God's own city", but it seems to have its definite attractions to Cap. MARK KIMBALL ROBINSON Another round, please 48 Aurora Street Hudson. Ohio Amherst Football letter I: "R" Club I. If someone was attempting to paint a true picture of Reserve, it would be a crime to omit Mark Robinson's grey Olds speeding down College Street in front ot the Chapel. A rugged tackle on the football team, Mark put his 190-odd pounds to good advantage. His method was simply to stand straight up in the line and knock down anything that came his way . . . player or referee. "Robbie" will probably be remembered best for his part in a sophomore year plot to haul away senior rock. It might have been successful if he hadn't borrowed a senior's wheelbarrow for the job.

Bob. the "rootest" member ot the senior class, beats the meanest skins this side of Cleveland. This merely means that Bob in his spare time kept all the tellows in his dorm from studying until he put his three or four drums in his closet for the day. At any time after classes one could see Bob reclining in an easy chair, buried in a DOWN BEAT magazine or at- tempting to form some swing band which could plague the Reservites and their dates during dance intermissions. Bob was an able manager. tor. besides taking care of the track squad since he was a freshman. he always managed to make the three plus list each grading period.

"You haven't paid your laundry bill yet." is the greeting which brings to the mind of every loyal Reservite "C.B."Roush, perhaps more widely known as "the comb". Scholastic honors come and go, but athletic prowess lives on forever. Iimmy's ability is unusual in that he chose to go out for wrestling and pole vaulting, both strange sports for him when he entered, in preference to basketball and baseball, which he had played before. Swing records, "unusual" neckties, and careless driving characterize his mode of existence. Smith and Mt. Holyoke may vie for him next year, as his mind is set on Amherst. PAUL GEORGE RUSSELL "Racing with the moon" 53 Kenilworth Drive Akron, Ohio Kenyon Soccer letter I: "R" Club I: Record Staff IV, II: Senior Annual Staff I: Glee Club IV. III, II, Date Manager I: Octet I. Paul Russell came to Reserve four years ago, and during that time he has shown himself to be a person easy to get along with, who has a good sense of humor and a singing voice which he does not hesitate to exercise for all who care to listen. Some do care to listen, apparently, for Paul has been in the Glee Club as well as the octet. He won his soccer letter during his senior year and was on the track team for several seasons. Perhaps the school will remember Paul best for his friendliness and will- ingness to cooperate, for his easy going nature leads to both virtues. IOHN C. W. SCHAIE How about the Russian Liberal System? 205 Storer Avenue Akron 2, Ohio Columbia Study Hall Prefect I. Although "Master Iohn" came here only last fall, it was not long before he was chosen for the presidency of North Hall. Iohn was really of the more quiet type. In spite of his daily handball practice with Lahr, Schaie was not given to the strenuous life. His chief interest was the radio. He will gladly tell you all about WAKR, which he managed during the summer preceding his coming to Reserve. While Iohn is said not to work too hard, nobody complains of his grades, himself least of any. Although he says he will try for advertising, Iohn is fast an the road to a banker's career with one of the most important attributes thoroughly mastered. PAUL CLEVELAND SHEPARD Let's have a little game Africa Acres Chesterland, Ohio Kenyon Football letter I: "R" Club I: Band III, II, I. Paul was best known for his deadly tackling throughout the football season and for his deadly tackling of his roommate after football season, for he and Ted Boyce inhabited one of the solariums of C.C. By "Teb's" own admission Paul was an indispensable cog in our potent football machine. Baseball was Paul's spring sport during his four years at Reserve. As chairman of the Senior Discipline Committee, it was Paul's job to fool all the worried seniors into believing that they commanded a tremendous amount of respect from the underclassmen. Surely no one was better suited to the job. IOHN PHILLIP SIMONS Where are the funnies? 4464 West 194th Street Cleveland, Ohio Swarthmore Glee Club I. Fortunate was the boy or girl who made "Smiley" Simons' acquaintance soon after his arrival in his junior year. From his facial expression one might infer that the world had been good to "Smilin' Iack". He walked around with a constant grin and seemed to be-not dreaming-but in a sort ot worldly contemplation. At publication time it wasn't known for sure whether "Smiley" would ever swim the graduation requirement. Quiet and restrained in remarks, he soon became known for his subtle humor and soft criticisms during class time. Whenever the perpetual grin deep- ened, one could be sure that "Smilin' Iack" had found something amusing, which he was not going to share with others.

Editor I: Study Hall Prefect I: Mug- wumps I. Without a doubt, the highlight of the tall term this past year was our football team's victory over U. S. in a game which ruined their hopes for an undefeated season. Captain ot that team was George Vaught, who has earned two letters at right end. George's winter sport was basketball in which he won a letter this year. For three years he supplied the RECORD with humor columns and has this year devoted himself to the ANNUAL. While not engaged in all these activities, George would will- ingly tell of his exciting adventures of the summer previous. usually re- garding the spectacular rodeos, the week-long houseparties, and the gorgeous "people" of Texas. BRUCE ROBERTSON WILLIAMS Let's play catch Berkshire Road Gates Mills, Ohio Cornell Everyone admits that there are radios in C. C.. but to set up a distribution center for them is another matter. Gentle with masters and witty with classmates. Bruce's executive skill was first brought out in his ireshman year when he created the fourth floor political machine. No one since has suspected that "My own Dear Brucie" was the "brain" behind putzes in- volving his roommate Phil Norris and Wink Haggerty. In his senior year he led his league soccer team to deserved victory. Honest, straightfor- ward, and devoted to his class ring and pin, he never gave one away without getting the other back, thus keeping them both from being in circu- lation at the same time.

Elma of 1947 This school year has been a very successful one for the Class of '47 and a decided improve- ment on previous years. Right from the start the new juniors dug in, de- termined to make this year one of outstanding achievement both ath- letically and scholastic- ally. Now it seems safe to say that they have done just that. Early in the year the juniors chose Dick Rog- ers to lead the class with Bill Lindsay assisting him in the vice presidential capacity. Brad Williams succeeded in keeping his greedy paws in the money tor another year. Lindsay, Vice President: Rogers, Presi- dent: Williams, Secretary-Treasurer Most of the class found their way into one or more of the varsity sports, and many were influential in turning the tide of victory for Reserve. Probably the largest single contribu- tion was Sully's extra point in the U.S. football game. Howard, Carter, Wehr, Rogers, Ryan and Hartsock also heaped athletic laurels upon their class. Putzing, the main cause tor the low grades which many members of the class had been pulling down prior to this time, was held to a minimum this year due to the iron hand with which Prefects Roush and Nicholson ruled the second floor and the padded footsteps with which the Scotchman traversed it. Because of this nearly everyone's grades went up, as illustrated by the fact that "Larrimore" and "Obbie" made the three plus list. Honors for top grades again went to Bobby Evans and Emerson Garver represent- ing the town boys, and R. P. Buchman and Gerry Austen representing the dorms. However, the year was not entirely without event. Carter managed to carry off three good putzes: in fact they're still looking for the boys who staged a necktie party back in the tall of '45, Throughout the year we were entertained and intrigued by: Wehr's thesis on "Gurls", Howard's "Nothing up my sleeves. no mirrors, no ropes, no hidden wires", Sheldon's record for being first to the washroom practically every evening. Sully's pants, "Bull-dog's" Mansfield women, McCombe's glasses, and "Cowboy's" week-end excursions to Kent State. This year has been a good year tor the Class of '47, and there is no reason why next year should not be a better one. ...............,' Left to right - Top row: Stitel, Burt, Gebhardt, Engholm, Daily, Wilson, Gulick, Callahan, C.

GZQM of 1942 A few days before au- tumn 1945 officially ar- rived, the third floor of Cutler Hall was again the scene of frantic ac- tivity, as the Class of 1948 returned for its second year at Reserve. At first the larger rooms and extra study halls were slightly confusing, but after a few days everything again was quiet-or at least com- paratively so. In addi- tion to the "old-timers" there were many new sophomores, some of whom got rooms in Cut- ler, while most had to be content with the Athenaeum. These new additions swelled the sophomore ranks and s..,,,,. Barnard, President: Nobil, Secretary- Treasurer made '48 the largest single class in the school. Shortly after the beginning of the year a class meeting was held at which it was decided to advance Bob Barnard to president and to keep lim Nobil as secretary-treasurer. Dick Daily, one of the new additions to the class, was elected as a second member to the Council. A few months later he and Pat Mosher were replaced by Charles and Frank Cory. A number of sophomores made the athletic varsities in 1945-46. Notable among them were Pete Gulick, Dick Daily, the Cory brothers, Pat Mosher, Iim Maples, Les Wil- son, Alan Krause and Harry Hunsicker. At the end of the fall term several members of '48 showed promise of an excellent scholastic rating. Alan Kyman, Marshall Ernstene, Barney Engholm and Greg Taylor, who came to school in Ianuary, were on the Honor Roll fairly regularly. But the class was not completely composed of serious scholars. Towne Bannon and Ernie Evans managed to give the Prefects a few gray hairs, while Gebhardt, Kat- ker 6: Company also helped to keep the dorm lively. Most of their stunts were carried on nocturnally, and many were the mornings when the hall between 302 and 315 was lit- tered with neckties, shoes and other equipment necessary tc well-groomed sophomores. As a whole, however, the class showed that much may be expected of it during its two remaining years at Reserve. 1 Left to right Top row: Mell, Weidenthal, Fuller, Weber, Peterson, Sharp, Wood.

The first few days all went well: then a wave of putzing raged through the dorm leaving in its wake tenths, disorder and prefects. Soon the P. C. R. lPutzers' Confed- eration of Reservel was formed, and oft went the freshman class in true Reserve tradition. As the y e a r progressed, the words Putz, Mell, Fuller and Nicholson became synonymous. "Brain" Brassert also aided in the diabolical destruction of the Athenaeum. During our leisure hours when we were not devising some new source of irritation for the Pretects, we would sit in the Common Room and tell Mother Goose Tales Lewis fashion. Mason Iones, that ace Swanston, Secretary: Williams, Presi- dent: Post, Vice President promoter, put on a tournament in ping-pong which raked in the profits. The merit score took its toll, but most escaped. Only a few got censures. When the freshmen arrived, we were fortu- nate that paddling had been abolished, but other means of torture had to be devised. Like all freshman classes we hoped for a discipline committee, but this just didn't seem to work out. Hardly any of our illustrious class carried bricks under the order of the Senior Discipline Committee. However, one of the few was Albert "The Atomic Kid" Myers, Whose only statement was, "Boy, were those bricks heavy!" As far as extracurricular activities are concerned, most freshmen took part in lightweight sports, but a few won var- sity positions. We all had to spend our required number of hours in the woodshop, but everyone loved that course. No one lost a limb, but some got slightly hacked up. One of the best craftsmen turned out to be Admiral Burgeson, a true man of the sea. Our class had some photographers, too. The most prominent of these were Bill "Hold That Pose" Taylor and Carl "Click" Weidenthal. In the music department "Super-duper Swooner Crooner" Rollin DeVere sent all other singers to the cellar. But in spite of all this our one aim is to make the class of '49 the best in Reserve history. S., ,,, I X ff2f?'1 EQ WJ Nb X' ,,, f - W f f L X 5' V W Wii2"" '3 ' J ' m" 'U ' i ..

Sched eauncif Eleven students, two fac- ulty members cmd the Headmaster constitute Re- serve's School Council. whose main function is to encourage greater coop- eration between the fac- ulty and students. Dave Nicholson presided over the Council's meetings for the past year, and Terry Garrigan kept the records. Tom Allchin, Don Kramer and lim Roush completed the group ot tive Senior class members. Sopho- more and Iunior repre- sentatives were chosen for terms of one semester with the result that Dick Daily and Pat Mosher of the Sophomores and Nat Howard, Dick Rogers and Bill Lindsay of the Iuniors served until mid-year. Then Frank and Charles Cory and Bill Lindsay, Dick Rogers Garriqan, Secretary: Nicholson. President and Brad Williams were elected. Shortly afterwards George Williams was chosen president of the Freshman class and automatically became a non-voting member of the Council. Messrs. Parker and Waring presented the faculty viewpoint at all the dinner meetings which occurred usually twice a month. The student members of the Council also met at lunch five days a week to discuss current hap- penings and problems. During the school year the Council supervised six informal dances, along with other miscellaneous activities, such as the schedule for the opening day ot school, the collection of articles for the citizens of Wester Soubourg, and the War Fund subscriptions. A student suggestion box was placed in Seymour Hall in order that the entire student body could take part in making suggestions concerning different phases of school life. The Council reviewed these sugges- tions, discarded the impractical ones, and referred the ones they thought worth while along with their opinions to the Executive Committee. The Council also took charge of a program designed to stop waste of heat, electricity and Water, as well as breakage in the school. l t Lett to right Top row: Divoll, Gleason, Rodman, Iohn Miller, Laub, Iim Miller, Gcirrigan, Kramer.

The "R" Club this year was one of the biggest in the school's history, showing a more even distribution of varsity letters than ever before. Despite its large size, the club was well organized, and, under the able guidance ot its officers, Presi- dent Roush, Vice President Dave Nesbitt and Secretary George Vaught, it sponsored dinners, dances, tree movies, and various other activities. Since no dues are charged to the members of the club, it is necessary, in order to support their various activities, to raise money in such ways as the sale of "Cokes" at the winter athletic contests in the gym. Other such plans have been considered tor next year so that the club can provide cr more extensive program. Boys with three or more letters automatically earn member- ship to the Varsity Board, or high council of the "R" Club. Varsity Board members vote with coaches on the presenta- tion of letters or numerals to boys who narrowly miss the requirements of points or quarters.

N e a r l y two thousand copies per week were distributed to the students, alumni, parents and friends of the school. Spud Milligan and Dan Collister, the guiding lights of the RECORD, with the indispensable aid ot Herb Gleason and Dick Howell, have displayed splendid editorial ability and can show as witnesses to their skill such editions as the Editors Milligan and Collister Commencement and Houseparty issues. Also near the top of the masthead was Bob Dewey, managing editor and gen- eral handy-man. Whether they actually loved the work or not, we cannot tell, but we are sure that Dave Hollinger and Dick Rogers, the sports editors, have really sweated out many meets with paper and pencil. Those smiles one sometimes sees around the campus were probably caused by the humor of "lust for the Record", composed by Brad Williams, or "Without Reserve", written by so many varied humorists who have tried their skill that they remain unmen- tioned here. The unsung heroes who have supplied the paper with pictures and cartoons are the expert photogra- phers Dick Wright and Alan Kyman, and the comic-creators Bill Laub and Bob Rodman. And finally, we pay our respect to Franklyn S. Reardon, who has been an excellent adviser and guide to all the boys on the staff. But, of course, our paper could not become a reality without the able printer, The Independent Press, and its prompt and careful service. Left to right Back row: B. Williams, Garrigan, Hoefinghoff.

E With impressive ideas for an extra large year- book which would ap' pear in Iune, the editorial board, headed by Herb Gleason, Dick Howell and George Vaught, be- gan meetings early in October with Mr. Rear- don as adviser. At the meetings the prelimina- ries toward publishing the annual were ar- ranged. During the winter term members of the senior class went to Akron to have their pictures taken, while other pictures were made on campus, and the articles began to come in. With the advent of March, however, it began to be increasingly Editors Gleason, Vaught. Howell obvious that the annual would not be out until after Reserve had gone home for the summer. This was due chiefly to the acute shortages which developed during the winter in photographic materials as a result of strikes throughout the industry. But this is not an apology. An actual attempt has been made to make this annual an improvement in both size and quality of material to any which has preceded it. Many in the graduating class as well as the other classes have worked on it. Spud Milligan did an excellent job in the capacity ot man- aging editorg Lee Hoefinghoff was the business manager, who was confronted this year with the problem of soliciting the extra cost of producing the book from the business organizations with which the school had contacts. Special mention should be made concerning the contributions of Mr. Moos and of Dick Wright, who, assisted by Bob Garfield, handled most of the job of photography. Opportunity is taken here to thank all of the staff whose names appear on the title page without whom this book could not have been made.

The club also sang tor Dr. Hayden at Pierce House twice during the year. With Dan Collister as president, Dave Nicholson as vice president and Bill Lindsay as secretary, the club enjoyed the direction of Mr. Clewell. This year the club's repertoire. being larger than ever before, demanded two pianos. These were alternately played by Mrs. Evans, Miss Tinker and Mr. King, who returned from the Army during the past year. The routine ot the Glee Club is rigorous, but pleasantly chummy. Crammed into inadequate choir stalls, this year's large group soon learned to cram themselves similarly into the rows ot chairs for practice in the music building.

Their first appearance was at the tamed houseparty at which they were actually requested to sing an encore. The num- bers were not numerous but for the most part well done. Every Thursday and Friday nights the Octet gathered down at the Fine Arts Building to spend about three-quarters of an hour singing and enjoying lite.

The most original of these were Bearcat, Goldie, Winky and Ierimiah Obediah. As their nicknames varied so did their sizes, ranging all the way from Leeb to Gleason and Kramer. As a group they sported letters of every sport: their scho- lastic achievements were no less exceptional. The Athenaeum's tottering walls were governed by Leeb, Clarke, Garrigan, Collister, Haggerty and Gleason. Herb and Winky ruled the fourth floor with an iron hand, writing tenth slips by the hundreds. The second floor was covered by Dan and Terry, whenever they could fight their way through the debris, which they claimed, Brett and Getz had left them from the previous year. On the first floor "Canoe Lett to right-Back: Wright, Laub, Divoll, Hollinger, Allchin, Vaught, I-Ioetinghoft. Front: Schaie, F. Austen, Hasbrouck.

When not supervising the school, Nick and lim sweated over next week's laundry and finished pressing last week's dry cleaning. Almost any morning Skip and Don could be seen eating Bannon's food and watching him make their beds and clean their room. Bob and Ion at the other end of the third floor never found out the names of the culprits who made so much noise on Sun- day mornings. Although they went to the movies on Week nights, listened to the radio while studying, and took innumerable week- ends, the Prefects fulfilled without exception their responsi- bilities: dorm duty, checking in Saturday leaves early Sun- day morning, helping their charges with homework, and acting as putz busters.

Started last year, the plan for study hall prefects was con- tinued with the aid of George Vaught, Bill Laub, Tom Divoll, Lee Hoefinghoff, Frank Austen, Tom Allchin, Iohn Schaie, Dick Wright, Doug Hasbrouck and Dave Hollinger. These Seniors were chosen because of their trustworthiness for this position of responsibility. Besides giving them some extra privileges for their work, this plan gives more time to masters for other and more important tasks.

A week before the official school year started last fall, coaches Theibert, Ellis and Habel wel- comed an enthusiastic crowd of potential gridders back to the Re- serve playing fields. Brisk calis- thenics and wind drills for tough- ening up long-relaxed muscles soon gave way to signal drills and tackling practices as the pre- season workouts continued. On the whole, the turnout lacked ex- perience, especially in the line, but outstanding abilities soon came to be recognized as Teb put a team together. From the start, the whole squad showed plenty of fighting spirit and worked hard in preparation for the first game and all succeeding ones. A graph of the season would show a steady and steep rise of the power and ability of the squad as a whole, improving from every standpoint in each eri- counter and finally beating an undefeated University School eleven. Although the gridders' record is not a perfect one, the squad that established it will long be remembered for its splendid team spirit and indomitable fight. The first fray for the Green and White was held on foreign soil and under lights at Kent Roosevelt. The team showed up fairly well against a team which came on the field hav- ing already played two games but went down to a 26-6 de- feat. The Kent eleven used a fast and shitty backfield to Captain Vaught good advantage around end and on passes, almost all of their scores being made in these departments of play. Re- serve's defensive game proved to be weak, and the offense didn't click until a third period end run concluded under the goal posts. The Parma game, played on the Reserve field, was a heart- breaker. Somehow the green-clad team just couldn't get rolling. Throughout the tilt penalties and fumbles hampered potential drives goal-ward for the home team, but the visitors were able to push a score across in the third period for the only tally of the day, the final gun finding Parma possess- ing a 7-0 lead. Again taking to the road, the Tebmen journeyed to Rocky River to play a highly rated eleven. In this battle the Reserve offense really showed winning qualities, but two extra points missed found the Green and White holding up the short end of a 28-26 final score. In spite of this loss. the squad had gained confidence in its abilities and scoring powers, and this game proved to be the turning point of the season, Reserve taking its last four games with an average of about 25 points per contest while the enemy was limited to only one score during the remainder of the season. The first enemy to fall before the constantly improving Re- serve aggregation was an old Interstate League foe, Detroit Cranbrook. Teb's T-formation offense exploded potently in this game, and Cranbrook seemed to have its hands full just locating the ball, which crossed the goal line four times and split the uprights three times to stack up an impressive 27-U final score. This fray found both offensive and de- fensive mechanisms functioning smoothly for the definite advantage of the team. The following Saturday brought a weak Chagrin Falls eleven to the home gridiron, and the game soon developed into a rout. After the first team had rolled up three touch- downs the second team entered the fray and played almost the entire remainder of the game. This able eleven also pushed the leather across the final chalk stripe three times, and the report of the gun found 41 points on Reserve's half of the scoreboard, while Chagrin still was without score. The rampaging Reservites were not even slowed down by an undefeated Oberlin squad, whose supposedly danger- ous offense was continually bottled up by battling green- clad players. Forced to punt often, the visitors found it impossible to halt the Reserve tide as it swept down the field repeatedly to rack up 25 victorious points, a total which proved to be over half of the points scored against Oberlin during the entire season, For the third straight game the Green and White had held the enemy scoreless. The climactic U. S. game was one full of thrills and excellent playing and clearly showed the determined fight that the squad possessed. U. S., undefeated and confident of vic- tory, had underestimated the Reserve power. It was spirit, Dick Rogers scores in the Kent Roosevelt night game. determination, and good headwork that won the decisive 7-6 victory after a hard and bitter battle on the University School gridiron. Outfighting and out-thinking U. S. through- out the game Reserve's score came in the second quarter on a flat pass which went over from the eight-yard line. When the attempted conversion was blocked, a Reserve back picked the loose ball up and fought across the goal line to make the extra point good, a point which proved to be the winning margin of the game, U. S. scored in the third quarter but failed to make the extra point. At the final gun the ball rested on the U. S. four-yard line in Reserve's possession after a hard-fought fourth-quarter drive. Although the game was very close the last quarter performance of the Tebmen left no doubt in anyone's mind as to which was the superior team. This year's squad can well be proud of its fine record, and Reserve will long remember the Green and White team which wouldn't be beaten.

Of these the most prom- ising was Malcolm Kennedy, a tricky and hard shooting center forward. Throughout the season he was assisted on the line by vet- erans Rich Nichols and Chuck Critchfield who were flanked on the wings by Mac Pierce and Terry Garrigan. As the season progressed, these line- men were joined by Paul Russell and Bill Marion, trading off at the right inside spot. In the backfield the coach had three experienced men to hold the fort: Skip Newell at the center position, Corky Phillips on his right, and Glen Carter at fullback. However, there were three able as- sistants to these boys in Dan Collister and Bill Cleminshaw in the halfback line, and Iohn Miller, Carter's fullback cohort.

The team's power backed by fine spirit forced their Maroon and Yellow foes back until Mal Kennedy's ball-handling skill enabled him to score the first goal of the season. Though there was no more scoring, in either of the last two quarters, the rest of the game is to be remembered for hard fighting on both sides and one very anxious moment for Reserve when an Oberlin shot bounced off one of the Reserve goal posts with about three minutes to go. The following weekend Oberlin came down to Reserve to play a return game. For some time the play was uneventful, but near the end of the second quarter their goalie was again outwitted by Kennedy's accuracy as he tallied for the first and only Reserve counter in the game. However, greater kicking power brought Oberlin two consecutive goals and they finished with a one-point margin. Credit for the best playing of the afternoon goes to the backfield which did a fine job turning back the many powerful rushes by the Oberlin line. In the first of the soccer team's annual contests with Uni- versity School, the Green and White booters handed the Preppers a 2-l defeat by way of welcome to the Reserve campus. In this as in other games the team worked well together in a strong passing attack. Again Kennedy starred, tallying on two more well shot goals. The headline "Kennedy, newly elected captain, leads his team to victory" typifies his work during his term of leadership. The next game was the second with U. S. It soon became very evident that Mal Kennedy was an absolute necessity for Reserve if she intended to have an easy victory. He was absent from his usual center position due to a badly sprained knee. However, in the second game the play was extremely even and when the U. S. captain scored a goal during the second quarter none of the Reserve forwards was able to even up the score. Thus U. S. gained revenge for the trouncing Reserve had handed them the week before. The Pioneers' last scheduled contest of the year was with Shadyside Academy on the team's home grounds. New shooting ability was brought to the fore, as Chuck Critch- field led the scoring parade with two counters, to which was added another goal by Kennedy. Again the team had pulled hard together, with the forward line playing per- haps its best passing game out of the whole six, and Goalie Hartsock holding Shadyside to a single goal. The following weekend, on the day of the U.S. football game, Coach Roundy scheduled a third soccer game with the Preppers instead of a previously anticipated battle with Shadyside. The Reserve team came on the field that day bent on winning the second victory out of three. They car- ried this spirit with them throughout the even battle and only a lack of shooting power prevented them from de- feating their opponents. As it was, the Maroon and Black booters won on a single penalty shot. Though the score in games won and lost may not seem to be a good result for a team of eight returning lettermen, one must remember that all the teams played were speedy and skillful and one of them a college team. But against all opposition the Reserve eleven showed more spirit even though less skill than their foes. And for every opponent Coach Roundy depended on his Senior eleven to carry away a victory.

Badwtdail When the basketball season rolled around this year and "Wally" looked over the records, he found that Reserve really didn't have a very bright outlook for the coming twelve games. He had only two veterans coming back, Dave Nich- olson and Tom Divoll. However, his task was made easier when he was able to choose from the group of boys who had played with the reserves during the pre- vious year. Among these were Seniors Frank Austen, Tom All- chin, Dave Hollinger, George Vaught together with Denis Sullivan and Bob Ioslyn, both Iuniors. Even with this ex- perience Coach Wallace was seriously handicapped by not having any height, but he was counting on plenty of spirit to make up for this deficiency. While the first team was composed of Seniors with the ex- ception oi "Sully", the second team and reserves were almost all underclassmen. This should prove to be a definite advantage next year. The Green and White quintet opened its season in a contest with Oberlin High on the opponent's home floor. However. it was a far cry from the five which Coach Wallace had originally hoped to put on the court. By this time he had sized up Austen, Allchin, Vaught, Hollinger, Nicholson and Sullivan for the first team. Unfortunately, when the game Captain Hollinger was played, he had only two of these boys who were able to play, the others being out on account of illness. Thus he had to play his second team for practically the whole game. Consequently, by the advantage of both height and ex- perience Oberlin trounced both the first team and the re- serves. When the Reserve tive went to Canton Timken in their next scheduled fray, they met a team which was slated to score an easy victory. The Trojans found that they were going to have no easy battle when George Vaught opened the Re- serve scoring session with three quick field goals. Never- theless, the Timken five, whose shooting was considerably better than the Reservites', were able to recover their first quarter setback and led the visitors by one point at the half. From then on they led the field, and though Hollinger and Nicholson both made determined assaults in the latter part of the game, the Trojans finally led by sixteen points, while their reserves in a hard fought game gained a one-point decision over the Green and White sophomores. The following week the Green and White quintet came into its own as it defeated a speedy Ravenna Township team in the Hudson gym. On the Reserve side the points were quite evenly distributed, but Denis Sullivan scored highest with eleven markers. As usual Coach Wallace's boys started well, but this time they kept it up and held their lead all through the second half. The day became a double victory, for the reserve team had already won its contest with the Cory brothers taking the scoring lead. Though the team's spirit had increased greatly because of their first win of the season the week before, they found themselves with their toughest workout so far when they met the highly rated Akron South team in their next con- test. The Akronites had great height of which they made full use. Led by their center, Eli Ioyce, All-city basketball star, South tore away from the smaller Reservites. The reserves, too, fell before a much taller Akron team. While almost everyone on the team helped equally in the next game to defeat Tallmadge, scoring honors went to George Vaught and Dave Hollinger. The contest was fairly close all the way, while the Green and White quint had a bit of a scare when the Tallmadge five made a deter- mined last-minute assault which was countered and beaten off only when Vaught swished a field goal with practically no time to go. In the preliminary game a similar thriller occurred when Nat Howard tied the game up with a fielder in the last two seconds of play. Pat Mosher then tossed in a foul throw to win the game by a one-point margin. Interstate competition was renewed the following Saturday when the Green and White quintet visited Buffalo, N. Y., to engage Nichols School. Playing in a strange, small gym the Reserve team seemed to have the odds against them. While Nichols led the way the whole game, it was only when they began to connect with all of their foul shots that they pulled away from the Reserve five who couldn't seem to duplicate their opponent's performance on the foul line. When finally Reserve rallied, led by Frank Austen and Dave Hollinger, it was only to lose the contest by two points, a game they could no doubt have won had their foul shooting been up to par. Canton Lehman came to Reserve the next weekend in full knowledge of their superiority over their opponents. One of the best teams in the state, they knew their ability in pass- ing and shooting and they immediately put it to work. Reserve soon fell behind under the powerful Canton pass- ing attack and never came near to regaining the lost ground. Sullivan and Nicholson, while doing most of the guarding. Right: Vaught jumping Erickson of U.S. also managed to do best in the scoring. In another of the many close battles of the year the reserves, even with the help of the second team, fell to their Lehman foes by two points at the final gun. Coach Wallace scheduled another interstate game for the following Saturday, this one with Shadyside Academy at Pittsburgh. Avenging last year's defeat, the Pioneers led Shadyside all the way. Denis Sullivan's scoring job eclipsed all other attempts, as he collected 24 points to lead the Green and White quint to a 44-30 victory. On the whole, the team played better ball that day than on any other, as Coach Wallace pointed out at the end of the season. Reserve's last game is always the U.S. contest. When Wally sent his spirited five onto the floor at Reserve to meet the Preppers, he knew that they would have no easy time of it. As far as the team was concerned they were determined to do their best and to repeat the year's football victory over the Maroon and Black. And though they didn't have gold basketballs ready to present to the mem- bers of their team, University School felt that the game was going to be a pushover. It proved otherwise but their height and straight foul shooting got them out of many holes and they managed to get a five-point lead which they held till the final gun. In the preliminary game the sopho- mores, paced in shooting by the Cory brothers and in ball handling by Tom Divoll, won an easy victory. The team was glad to learn that they were going to get a crack at the Cranbrook five in a post season game at Re- serve. The records showed even chances for both teams, but when it came to actual playing the Green and White team displayed more spark than their taller adversaries. From a mere two-point lead at the end of the third quarter Coach Wal1ace's boys gained a ten-point advantage and held it till the end of the game. Scoring honors for the day went to Vaught and Sullivan, while in the reserve game with Stow High the Corys again led their teammates to victory.

After Thanksgiving vacation last by winter, Reserve's swimming squad I I 'luluv began working out in preparation for a tough, eight-meet season. :,,, i Muscles and wind were rapidly put l nnlnln 3 in condition by long stroking and X kicking drills under the expert eye 'f of coach Larry Ricker. This year a new training device was used by the coach with admirable results in the form and endurance depart- ments--wide Webb belts, fastened to the wall by ropes, were buckled around the swimmers' waists. This belt held the swimmer about three teet from the side of the pool but gave him all the free movement ot swimming. Since the swimmer didn't move in the water, a much greater pull than would ordinarily be required had to be exerted to complete a stroke. In addition to the fact that the belts were excellent conditioners, they enabled the coach to ob- serve closely any swimmer's stroke and correct him if nec- essary. The schoo1's first meet, held on December 8, with East High of Akron in the Reserve tank, found the squad considerably weakened by flu, which at that time was very prevalent. xy , 8 ' - ' l Captain Nesbitt However, the team put up a valiant fight against a strong visiting aggregation but were edged out 35-31 in a close meet. On the whole, Reserve did remarkably well consider- ing its short period of training and depleted ranks. The squad's second meet, held soon after the school had re- turned from Christmas vacation, was a tough contender with Akron's city championship teamfBuchtel Highewhich nar- rowly nosed Reserve out 34-32. An exciting meet all the way, this splash test finally rested on the medley relay, which was won by Buchtel. In spite of this loss, the Ricker squad was now beginning to feel its power and with con- tinued training promised to be a winning combination. Taking to the road for its third meet, a determined group journeyed to Cleveland Heights High School and came home with a decisive 46-20 victory. Performing in the 20-yard pool, Reserve captured seven of the eight events to pile up its considerable margin of points. This encounter showed everyone what training and spirit can do for a team, and the Reserve swimmers had plenty of both with which to continue the season successfully. Reserve performed in its own tank when it took on Cleve- 1and's Shaw High team and won another victory-46-26, taking six of the eight events. Although Shaw didn't exhibit much power, Reserve kept its winning form at a high level. A fast start in the Buchtel meet. The following week the Pioneer strokers invaded the halls of Shaker Heights High School and churned to a 36-30 vic- tory. In spite of the strange pool, which was very rough, Reserve again turned in an admirable show of power to win its third straight victory. Reserve's biggest battle came when East Tech, Cleveland city champions, visited the campus for a meet which was thought sewed up by the Clevelanders. The Reserve aggre- gation fought the Tech team to a 33-33 tie score and came very close to winning. The following Saturday found the team in Oberlin for a prac- tice meet with the college varsity. A genuine scare was thrown into the collegiates when Reserve kept the running scores almost equal throughout the contest but finally dropped the meet 34-32 to Oberlin. The Canton McKinley contest held in the Reserve pool was a fairly close battle up to the two final relays. The last year's state champions then took good advantage of the home squad which had been weakened by pinkeye and other injuries and captured the medley and freestyle relays to boost their score to 38 while Reserve retained a losing 21-point total. The final meet of this season was of course against Univer- sity School, and this year was held in the Reserve tank. U. S. had a strong team this year, and the battle was fast and close all the way, with the whole encounter resting on the 200-yard freestyle relay. However, the U. S. quartet of strokers outdistanced the Reserve representatives to win the event and the victorious seven points to gain a score of 36 while Reserve possessed a 30-point total. This was a tough meet for the Ricker squad to lose as it had improved throughout the season, but the showing against a powerful U. S. aggregation was indeed commendable.

Austen, Robe, Ober, Gordon, Albrecht, Sheldon. Wmikng Despite the fact that the wrestling season cannot be called success- ful, the most important meet of the eight was taken, that with University School. The amount of turnover in the team this year was amazingly large and partially accounts for so many defeats in the season. A total of twenty-two boys wrestled the ten positions, and only two of those positions, the 146 and 165- pound classes, were held by one contestant during the entire length of the season. But every boy that did wrestle, regardless of position, gave everything he had and thus paved the way for the fine determination and spirit that brought us the victory on the day of the University School meet. As there are in almost every season, there were in this one or two rather spectacular happenings. One such was the time in the meet with Cleveland West High, when Larry Wehr, then weighing about 109, had to wrestle in the 127- pound class because of an illness. Larry not only kept his opponent from pinning him, but also gained two decision points in the bargain. The unofficial record pin time of the year was made by Leonard Gordon in the unofficial Barberton meet. He floored his man in less than three-quarters of a minute. In Captain Roush the very first meet of the year, Bob Dewey made a last- minute entrance into the 154-pound class, and after power- fully beating his man on practically no advance notice, he refused to stay on the team for the rest of the season. Coach Ellis still can't figure this one out. Harvey Graves is also one we were more than sorry to see leave, especially after the pin he turned in on the first meet. However, he added immensely to the morale of the team by attending all following meets and occasionally offering advice in subdued tones. The heartiest congratulations are in order for lim Roush and Wilburt Haggerty for their undefeated seasons, We will have a great loss next year because, not only Roush and Haggerty, but also Bill Laub, Dick Kaylor, Chuck Critchfield and Don Kramer graduated in Iune. However, much promise is seen in the remaining members, many of Whom have had at least one year's experience. Now it's about time for our annual cheer for the man who takes a bunch of half-green "recruits" and turns them sin- glehanded into a tough and fighting wrestling team, Ed Ellis, better known as "Coach". He should get an additional cheer this year for producing a hard fighting team. This year Reserve was fifth in line at the end of the tour- nament in Cleveland. Iim Roush, as everyone expected, was district champion at 165 pounds. "Wink" Haggerty took second place at 145, and Hoy Ober and Larry Wehr took third places in the 127 and 103-pound classes respectively. Haggerty pins in the Collinwood meet. Lclub fighting Curr of U.

With three lettermen back from last year's baseball squad and ten men from last year's second squad, a keen fight developed for first string positions. Letterman Dennis Sul- livan in the early practices showed off that fast ball which made the enemy batters go hitless time after time last year. "Su11y" was well backed up by Tom Allchin, another letterman who split his time between pitching and his old love, third base. Iohn Miller and P. M. Iones also showed much promise as hurlers. "Proxy" Critchfield led the list of candidates for the backstop position with Wingard and Barnard providing "Teb" with material for future years. The superior fielding ability of Dave Hollinger placed him above Rich Nichols in competition for the first base position. ., ..y..eNwbb The keystone sack was well guarded with returning let- termen, Dave Nicholson playing second and Dick Rogers playing short, while at third Mosher alternated with Allchin. The outfield positions were closely contested but at this writing the best bets seemed to be Doyle or Mosher in left, Dewey in center, and Kramer in right. However, Graham and "Tiny" Miller could not be counted out of the running. The first two games resulted in as many victories for Reserve, one over Northfield 4-3, and one over Stow ll-l. The team hit and fielded very well and it was hoped that they might continue to do the same throughout the rest of the season. Kramer singles in Northfield game.

But letters are not the only proof of ability, for there was a good deal of talent elsewhere on the team. Russell, Nesbitt and Stansbury ran the dashes, while Hobie Cleminshaw and Iim Noble com- peted in the 440. Corky Phillips and Leonard Gordon took places in the mile and half-mile and could always be counted on for fast finishes. Corky improved vastly since last year, cutting down his time for the half-mile con- siderably.

Brown, McCombe, Coaches LaBorde and Culver '7enmZ The prospects for the 1946 tennis team looked very bright. With three lettermen, Clarke, Rabe and Austen, returning from last year's undefeated team forming its backbone, the squad hoped this year to live up to its successful predeces- sors. Playing his third straight year on varsity tennis, Tom Clarke, first singles man this year, was the team's strong- est contender. The other singles positions were ably held by Babe, Austen and Vaught, in the order named, while Ayers, Brown, McCombe and Bill Cleminshaw handled the doubles department. Reserve was this year a member of the Greater Akron High School League for the first time and played a regular schedule with its other members. Games were also sched- uled with Shaker Heights and University School in Cleve- land. Topping oft the season there was the Interstate League meet at Cranbrook in Detroit, in which all five Inter- state teams competed. Behind Coach Culver's able guid- ance, the team promised to make a fine showing this year.
