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
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-
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
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

"blues songs" written 3 I,
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.

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.

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.

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

desserts and gossip with their friends, a

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

countenance of' the opposing Green or White

proved futile. due to the fact that both
youths kept their mouths tightly shut.

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
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
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. These fellows attended the steak
roast and other activities at the same time
as the dance in the town.

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-

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

body. His manner is friendly and cordial,
and his good.sense of humor is a strong
