Page 10 RESERVE RECORD September 27, 1945 THE RESERVE RECORD Published every Thursday during the school year by the students of Western Reserve Academy, Hudson, Ohio Joel B. Hayden, D.

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.

RESERVE it RECORD O VOLUME XXI,-No. 3 N , , , cc W . . -----g--- - Huosou, omo. 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. Dean Mickel has been named the manager of the campaign. The fund headquarters is lo- M 12 I.e'1v'is I I . ll'1'llia ms Vesper Speaker Dr. Harold C.

Dr. Phil- lips, a graduate of Denison Univer- sity and Union Theological Seminary, has been pastor of the Cleveland church since 1927. Because he is in much demand as a speaker, it has been a long time since Dr. Phillips has found it convenient to visit the academy.

The trustees cordially in- vite the support of all alumni and friends, convinced that the hope of a better world springs from the ever increasing power of sound education." M r. William D. Shiite

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, !
