'life's Intrinsic Values'
ls Theme at Sunday Vespers
"Life's Intrinsic Values" was the theme
around which was built a most impressive
and thought provoking talk given Sunday
evening at Vespers by Dr. Harold Cooke
Phillips, pastor of First Baptist Church,
Cleveland. Dr. Phillips pointed out three
types of evaluations that people place upon
things in general: the comme1'cial value,
or how much something means to us by its
worth in money alone-the utilitarian value,
or how much actual use a thing is going
to be to us-and third, the intrinsic value,
or how much something is worth to us just
in the permanent lasting enjoyment we will
receive from it.
This last type of value, Dr. Phillips sta-
ted, is increasingly difficult to appreciate
in our timesg we must not allow commer-
cial and utilitarian values to crowd out the
values of culture. Our Christian religion
sends us to explore the truly woith-while
things of life-the lasting things, which
will never pass, while lesser issues fade
Our speaker, Dr. Phillips. was born on
the island of Jamaica in the Wcst Indies.
After graduating from Denison University.
Granville, Ohio, he continued his education
at Columbia University and at Union Theo-
logcial Seminary, both in New York City.
Dr. Phillips' inspiring messages and sin-
cerity of manner have made him in the
past few years a speaker to whom the
whole school looks forward to hearing every

Scenes of devastctfion in Wester Soulmry
When Western Reserve Academy realized
the connection between its new bell in the
chapel tower and the war-devastated, flooded
village of Wester Souburg in Holland, the
school council hit upon the idea of sending
a Christmas present to the people of the
village. During the Christmas season of
1944 a campign raised S2125 for this pur-
pose. At that time the council sent a letter
to the burgomaster of Wester Souburg.
By graduation time much more informa-
tion about the bell's origin had been found
out by alumni in Holland, the principal
facts obtained by Carl Hess, '33. This
information was sent to the alumni in the
Recently both Dr. Hayden and Mrs. Kitz-
miller received answers to the letters sent
to the burgomaster. Mrs. Kitzmiller has
been active in both the investigation of the
history of the bell and the campaign for
money, and almost all the work of research
and literature about the bell has been
turned over to her. In the letters, A. H. S.
Stemerding, "Voorzitter" of "Oost-en West-
Souburg," expressed his thanks for Re-
serve's thoughtfulness in collecting the

This is particularly regrettable in
view of the fact that the Cleveland

from this and various sources we are still

Daily Elected Council Member
Saturday, after luncheon, the sophomore
class held a meeting to determine a second
council representative for their class. Daily,
who was elected by a plurality vote, will
take the place of Cal Beal who did not re-

19 of the 44 ballots cast.
At this meeting it was also announced
that Bob Barnard will advance to the posi-

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

Wright. All of these boys played on the

In the dictionary one finds that the word
vespers refers to a religious service held
late on the Sabbath day. It is most
natural, therefore, for us to' have our ves-
per service in the evening instead of in
There are indeed many reasons which
speak for having it at the new time instead
of the old, first and most obvious among
them being that it is now held at the hour
when most vesper services are conducted.
It may also be. said that the vesper service
now comes at the beginning of the new
week, instead of at the lowest ebb of the
-old. Sunday tea marks the end of the old
week, and it is then that the student's mind
seems to turn to the tasks of the week
ahead. The time itself is preferable be-
cause then the service does symbolize a
beginning instead of an ending.
There was another complaint which was
held rather generally against the old time,
that it cut Sunday afternoon far too short.
Many were the times that games had to be
called off prematurely, or the downtown
movie left at the crucial point, in order
that one might be on time fort vespers.
Moreover, the service prepares one for
study, a difficult task on Sunday night,
particularly after an especially good week-
No one will deny that there are objec-
tions to the change, among them one which
is very sound. It is the fact that the
change brings boys back from week ends
earlier, particularly upper classmen. How-
ever, now that more gas is available, the
situation is not as bad as it might have
been last year. Nor is it nearly as bad
as it might have been had the decision been
to bring the whole school back for a five
o'clock vesper service. So there are con-

Of course it was purely Q

of our innocent freshmen. Because my
heart bleeds so for these young men I shall
do my best to expose those awful tricks
we upperclassmen pull on them.
One of my favorites is the "odd man"
racket. Although L do use this method
with some skill, probably the best known
artist along this line is "Blueshins" Gordon.
I have heard several of his victims remark,
"He blinded me with footwork!" Another
little number that is often employed is
the "Start with Weick and go around" rou-
tine. No matter how much one argues,
the counting always starts with Weick. Of
course it isn't that the throw is fixed or
anything of that nature. After all, this is
Reserve! Builder of men! Well, on second
thought, maybe it was fixed.
Probably the farthest extreme to which
anyone has carried this "throwing" busi-
ness as yet was the occasion when Jim
Rodman stumbled on a theory for making
any chosen person or persons throw any
number desired. The result was a compact
machine capable of controlling 5000 volts.
However, the machine was never used here
and it was frowned upon by the dining
room committee. "You might hurt Some-
body with it," they said. Instead, Jim pat-
ented it, and made a small fortune selling
it to small-town jails, thus eliminating the
necessity of taking all killers to the state
prison to be electrocuted.
So let me warn the new boys. Whenever
an upperclassman wants you to throw for
waiter-refuse him point blank. If it gets
to the point where you have to carry bricks
for talking back to seniors about throw-
ing, don't relent. After all, it's not so hard
carrying them. Ask those who know.
they have to shave when we do win!
Following in a noble tradition of many
years' standing, the prefects have
mass confiscations of the choicest
able viands-yes, I know it's a "Word
Wealth" word. The sophomores who fly
low over Cutler are the chief losers. Be-
fore "Muscles" Jarboe hits me, I'll leave.
