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-

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.

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.

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.

There have been 4 .--- I
"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.

Seven 'R' Men Return,
Soccer Prospects Promising
The varsity soccer squad held its first
practice of the year on Saturday when al-
most 40 boys turned out. 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-
On the whole, the squad showed up well.

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

plenty of the fight and hard-hitting power
that are necessary in those positions. 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
