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-
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.
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

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-
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
With these simple directions, you, too,
can make your "sneakeroo" a success. I'm

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-
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.

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.
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-

125th Anniversary and Memorial Program
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
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.
In recent years there has been a tremen-
dous increase in scientific research 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
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

'similar school activities. The addition of

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-
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

they will do after they -leave our alma

Throughout Reserve's various dormitories

been heard, and even stranger things have
been happening. Eager Reservites race to

husky guards with ready knives. The boy
