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.

. 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. Assisting the Chief Potentate in the solemn initiation cere- mony were Yogi Roush. Court Musician. and the nine Hamboozeleers-Brothers l Iipper picfirrc: Own Tuna Siam Lower picfzlrc: In at juni! 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. These fellows attended the steak roast and other activities at the same time as the dance in the town.

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!
