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

'Damut' Beromes Reserve's Mascot.
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

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.

the newly appointed Justice of the Supreme
Court of the United States, former senator
Harold H. Burton of Cleveland, is an honor-

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,

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.

First Team Smashes
Subs in Practice Game
The Pioneer eleven for '45 experienced
its first real game Saturday. In a tussle
between the first-string and the second on
the upper field it was proven that Roush,
Sullivan, Joslyn and Co. are the best com-
bination to be found in the squad.
The team of boys, who are likely to get
the nod to start the Roosevelt fray, were
held and even moved back on their haunches
during the first minutes. But this surpris-
ing reversal soon proved that all the gang
needed was a little rough stuff to wake
them up. They soon had the ball advanc-
ing rapidly towards the second team's goal
line, and in no time at all they had hit pay
This continued for the rest of the four
quarters of the game. The second team
and their substitutes were hardly able to
make any yardage against the solid line of
Vaught, D. Kramer, Kaylor, Shepard,
Dewey, Jim Miller, and Howard.
While their forward wall was holding ofi'
the opposition and blocking down field for
them, the backfield proceeded to run the
ball practically where and as far as they
pleased. Joslyn continually turned the
tables on the other team's offensive, snatch-
ing their passes out of the air and whirling
through would-be tacklers to the end zone
and another six points.
'The point making from their own of-
fensive was shared between "Slippery" Sul-
livan and "C. B." Roush. Both these halfs
broke away to go over on more than one
occasion. As for the extra points the at-
tempts were divided between Roush and
Howard. Neither was consistent.
Though the actual score was not kept, it
was well in the fifties for the first-string
against no scores for the other teams. It
is game experience that the Green and
White will need against the Kent team
Saturday as they will be playing against
a team that has been "under fire" in three
games previous to Reserve's opener.

league Soccer Teams
Ready for Competition
League soccer got off to a good start
this year when a good number of boys
answered Mr. Cleminshaw's call on the first
day. They spent a week p1'acticing, and
the older and more experienced boys showed
the 'younger and inexperienced ones some
ofthe fine points in playing a good game
of soccer. Since there was a fine turnout
of the older boys, who had played the game
before, it probably won't take a great
while for new boys to become proficient.
The whole group seemed very enthusiastic
and were eager to get the season under
At the end of the first week Mr. Clem-
inshaw, who is in charge of the league
boys, chose five seniors to captain the teams.
These boys, who will attempt to lead their
teams to victory, were Spud Milligan, Fred
Neal, Thatch Rea, Bruce. Williams, and Dick
Wright. All of these boys played on the
league team last year and hope to have
good teams again. Last year the teams
were one-sided, but this year they appear
more evenly matched.

Last Sunday afternoon the teams were
chosen by the captains at Mr. Cleminshaw's
home, and on Monday the first scheduled
game took place. The competition is keen,
and most of the boys show good spirit.
