Reardon Convocation IQ!-I-5 EGISTRATION DAY, 1945, begins a new year at Reserve-a year that brings her old boys a step nearer gradua- tion, a year that marks the beginning of a new era in the lives of her new boys. Registration Day, 1945, is the one hun- dred and twentieth opening day of school to occur on this campus. For these many years the footsteps of class after class have echoed through these ancient halls. mere saplings at the time of the building the great elms which today. We are, in of Middle College are shade our many walks reality, living in the past as we prepare for the future. In all the opening days there probably has never been a more fitting occasion for thanksgiving than at the present time. The years previous to V-J Day were years of anguish and sacrifice-times when the day of commencement was followed by immedi- ate military service. How thankful we are that that day has passed, and that soon our graduates can once again plan for a happy and normal college life. With war- time restrictions relaxed we may hope that this year will be one of the best ever at Reserve. To our newcomers this day marks the beginning of a novel and rather complicated life. We who have become familiar with the routine can well remember the dazed feeling that occupied us as we began our activities here. We were rushed from fioor to floor at the rining of a bell. It was hard to concentrate in study halls. We had no friends to confide in, a merit score to worry about. When it came to doing our home- work, we found that there we1'en't quite enough hours in the day. Fortunately, however, our confusion wasn't of long standing. Gradually we learned the ropes and discovered that edu- cation at Reserve means-besides good old- fashioned hard work-much in the satisfac- tion of accomplishment and many happy days on which we will long reflect. Welcome: OR 71 boys this will be the first year at Western Reserve Academy. Acting for the 141 members of the student body who have spent at least one year on the campus the Reserve Record takes this op- portunity to bid you welcome. If there is one primary lesson which the first issue of the Record might point out, it is this: Whatever one makes of himself depends entirely upon himselfg it is entirely' up to him. Just as a river can never rise higher than its source, so a boy can never expect to take from Reserve more than he is will- ing to contribute. This coming year will be a good one if each does his best to make it sog it will be a good one not only for each boy indi- vidually, but for the school as a whole. A school functions on a reciprocal basis, and all benefits are mutual. WITHOUT RESERVE ...-, Every year a few weeks before school ' ' starts, the mail begins l' bringing giant enve- ' lopes upon which the words "WESTERN t H 1 1 RESERVES ACAD- ! ' EMY" are prominent- ? ly printed. The ap- 0 ' if lf ' proved way of dealing with said envelopes is if to place them gently " f"1i f-- in an incinerator and -v watch them burn. How- ever, if one does decide he needs a week's reading matter and opens them, he is apt to find the following: 1. A little reminder that no student may step on the campus unless he has been checked over at the Mayo Clinicg either had his teeth all pulled or filledg and has taken out all eight kinds of tuition and athletic insurance. 2. A note telling him that his little brother's name is Abdul Samarr, that he lives in northeastern Mesopotamia, and that he speaks nothing but Arabic. CThis means his next two weeks are spent in night school so he can translate the handbook for him.J 3. A verbal floor plan of his room. "Your room is in the shape of an inverted trapezoidical sphere, so plan your rug ac- cordingly. There is a small high window fbarred, to keep out undesirable prowlersj which opens on a beautiful portion of the campus which the students fondly call "Searchlight Row." 4. And finally a list of required wearing apparel: "one black suit for dances, one pair of hip boots for misty days . . ." This, of course, is omitting little details like the twelve pages of new rules on din- ing-room behavior and the book entitled Q Held in :Rewufe Saturday, September 15-8:00-11:15, all classes start following regular Monday schedule 125-minute periodsjz All school as- sembly in study hall at 11:30.

Throughout the coming year I shall try to point out the humor of Reserve life in my own in- imitable fashion. First arrivals back on the old "lawn's wide sweep" were the football expectants around whom this year's team will be molded. I don't want to make any predic- tions, but if "Sully" will take oft' his "loaf- ers and bobby socks" and play football, and if "Jos" will give up the female of the species and attend all the practices we may have a good season. That, however, is in the "lap of the Gods." We're in for the same old stuff again this year--no pie a la mode, porterhouse steak or house parties. Yes, even though the war's over those changes won't be made. Scuttlebutt has it that the excuse which is destined to strike fear into the hearts of all Reservites is RECONVER- SION. Yes, sir, they've got us coming and going. "Gentlemen, the cosmic picture is a little hazy, but as far as I can see, the chips are down and we're trapped in the upper room!" I would like to be serious long enough to welcome the new arrivals to Re- serve. Torn away from their mother's apron strings, they will find out what the outside world is like. And the rest of us here would like to know, too. "This is a fine school iQuiet, Graham!! and you boys now have an opportunity to profit greatly here." QText of numerous speeches to be heard by new boys in approximately five student gatheringsj And so I greet you, new men of Reserve. Watch out for the merit score. Or as Bob "the haircut" Garfield once said, "Yipel" B. H. W. "Scientific Approach to the Merit Score." As for me, it's the incinerator method every time. G. V-

Ra . UkU ...SERVE RI-2QQ.l3.Q Ten Underclassmen, Five Seniors Fail to Return As we look over the list of newcomers and returning Reservites, we fail to find the names of 15 of our old friends. Although the following seniors lacked the required credits for graduation, two were accepted in college, two joined the armed services and the fifth transferred to another secondary academy. Haze Arnold entered Kenyon College, Charles Blakney enrolled in Williams, Ron- nie Cameron joined the Marines and Wayne Young enlisted in the U. S. Navy. Eric Heckett has transferred to Hill School. Among the underclassnien Bob Bender now goes to U. S., Phil Norris is enrolled at Staunton Military Academy and Bill Pierson enters Central High in Akron. Tom Swiler goes to Shaker High. Calvin Beal, president of the sophomore ll New Students Enrolleclf Reserve Celebrates 20th Anniversary as Boys' Preparatory School fi kms Qzlg. x K,-L class, is enrolled in Choate School.

For the remainder of the year the Siam Club members hold their numerous sessions in secret. Neither the Record nor the Senior Annual is permitted to publish the procedures of this organiza- tion. The senior members of the club, chosen at the beginning of last year, will don the formal costumes of the Siamese for the selection and initiation of the new mem- bers. Dean Mickel, given the title of High Potentate by the Kralahome of the Siamese government, will preside over the meeting. The music for the ceremony will sound strange and weird, but it is in accordance with old Siamese customs. Before the Siam Club meeting there will be a steak roast by the water tower at the rear of the Athenaeum. The "R" Club has planned an entertaining program at the close of the selection of Green and White members. After the "R" Club program "Laura," starring Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews, will be shown. Just 20 years ago this fall Western Re- serve Academy dropped the coeducational system of teaching to become strictly a boys' college preparatory school. This year 71 boys will enter to bring the total enroll- ment to 212. It is strange to report the fact that there are no freshmen coming from Cleve- land, O., this year. Ten of the first-year men come from Akron. They are John Anderson, Bill Fuller, Theodor Herwig, Tom Lewis, Don Mell, Walter Miner, Albert Myers, Alex Post, John Rechsteiner and Howard Walker. From Chagrin Falls come two boys, Rollin DeVere and Robert Peter- son. Bill Sharp, Jack Timmis, Dan Win- gard and Ed Winslow make up the delega- tion from Cuyahoga Falls. Two boys claim Gates Mills as their home. They are George Williams and Tom Woods. The four from Hudson are John Murphy, Doug Read, Tom Swanston and Carlton Weiden- thal. Joe Weber comes from Barbertong John Rossfeld from Limag David Simmon, Londong Bill Taylor, Painesvilleg Sonny Jones, Toledog Edward Dewey, Willoughbyg and John Burgeson, Youngstown. Three freshmen come from places located outside the state. They are Walter Brassert from Bloomneld, Ind., Leland Johnson and Roger Marshall from New York, N. Y. John Nicholson comes from Johannesburg, South Africa. There is a very large group of new sophomores this year-21 altogether. As there are no freshmen coming from Cleve- land there are no new sophomores coming from Akron. There are also two sets of twins in the second-year group, John and Richard Kaufman from Cleveland and Charles and Frank Cory from Lima. The rest of the boys from Cleveland are John Bukovnik, Frank Gibson, Jim James, Alan Krause, Sheldon Rench, Wi-lbur Smith, Rob- ert Snyder and Laurence Stifel. Paul Ho- bart comes from Chippewa Lake, Jack Tanner, Daytong Denny Brown, Hudsong Richard Daily, Irag Robert Bronfen, Lima, Larry Siddall, Oberlin, and Carl Gebhardt, wontinuod on Page 4, Column 33

September 13, 1945 R E S E R V E R E C O R D Page 3 Four Appointments Made to Eacultyp Two to Executive Staflp .. d Mr. Edwin Ellis Returns to Full-Time Positron ut Aca emy Each year brings changes in Reserve's faculty, just as it does in her student body. The masters who join Reserve's 1945-46 staff come to replace those who have been called into military service or who have accepted positions elsewhere. This fall the mathematics department will welcome its newest instructor, Mr. William J. Barr. Mr. Barr has taught history and mathematics at Stow High School for the past 19 years. He was also athletic di- rector at Stow and will assist Mr. Theibert in athletics here at Reserve. Mr. Barr holds degrees from Ohio University and the University of Akron. A newcomer in the language department is Mr. Samuel F. Husat. Mr. Husat is a graduate of Mount Union College and holds the degree of Master of Arts from the University of Michigan. He will teach Latin at Reserve, though he is also a com- petent instructor in German, French and Spanish. , Instructor in manual arts this year will be Mr. William Moos, Jr. Mr. Moos is a graduate of St. John's University in Min- nesota and has done graduate Work at the St. Cloud Teachers College and the Uni- versity of Wisconsin. He replaces Mr. Otis Wheeler. Mr. Mounir Sa'adeh comes to Reserve as instructor of history and religion. Mr. Miss Mary Geoppert Marries On August 29 Miss Mary Geoppert, now Mrs. John Litzell, was married in the Academy chapel by the Rev. Ray- mond Burns. Mrs. Litzell's husband, a sergeant in the U. S. Army, is stationed at Camp Cook in California. Sgt. Litzell returned recently from the European war theatre where he served six months with the 20th armored divi- sion in the Third and Ninth Armies. Three Elected to Cum laude For Scholastic Achievements At the final meeting of Cum Laude held in ea1'ly June three members of the class of 1946 were elected to membership in the society. Since these boys, Tom Clarke of Cleveland, Terry Garrigan of Akron and Herb Gleason of Cohassett, Mass., are the first to be selected from the present senior class, they represent the highest attainment of scholarship among the seniors for the past three years. All of these honored are active in cam- pus life. Among other activities each is serving as a prefect in Athenaeum. Ini- tiations will be held in the near future. Sa'adeh is a graduate of the American University, Beirut, Syria. He has taught history and ethics at the International Col- lege of the American University for 15 years, working on both college and sec- ondary levels. At present Mr. Sa'adeh is enroute to the United States from Europe. He is expected to arrive about October 1. Miss Helen L. Hayes will join the in- firmary staff, accepting the position vacated by Mrs. Gerig. She is a graduate of the Brooklyn Training School for Nurses and has had graduate training at a New York hospital. Since that time she has acquired several years' nursing experience in the Cleveland area. Miss Marion Beth Kelly will assume the duties of Mrs. Eilbeck, former school li- brarian. Miss Kelly is a graduate of the School of Library Science at Syracuse University. She has had experience in this Held at the Youngstown Public Library and at the library of the University of Pittsburgh. . Mr. Edwin L. Ellis returns to Reserve after a year's absence in war work. Mr. Ellis will teach physics, will again coach Reserve's wrestling team, and assist in other athletics. He is a graduate of Da- vidson College. Alter Eight Years 'on Campus Mrs. Gerig Leaves After Hve years' experience in the Akron City Hospital Mrs. Robert Gerig began her service to Reserve in 1937. Since that time she has labored continuously and faithfully as one of the nurses at Hobart House. It is with a genuine feeling of sadness that by her own decision the student body is forced to say goodbye to one who has made such an important contribution to the welfare of the campus. Mrs. Gerig's husband has recently re- ceived an honorable discharge after three years of service in North Africa and Europe with the United States Army. While we shall all regret the departure of Mrs. Gerig from the life of Reserve, we take this op- portunity to wish for her and Mr. Gerig every happiness in the days that are ahead. ,.-..-,.-..---.-,.-,.-.-.---.,-..-.-. 1 i T.

Maior Problems of School Delruted at Early Meeting Last Monday at the University Club in Cleveland the annual meeting of the pre- fects and senior members of the council was held for the purpose of discussing the major problems of the school and their remedy. The senior members of the council, the prefects and certain masters assembled at the club and adjourned to a private dining- room. The meeting was called to order by a chicken dinner, but soon the business of the day was considered. Dr. Hayden sum- marized what had been done with the "Big Brother" idea and asked for suggestions for improvement. After all was settled, questions were raised from the floor on various matters concerning the conduct of the school. The problem of late Saturday permits was talked over, but the real deci- sion was placed with the council. Ques- tions also arose concerning the study hall prefects, the house party and inter-clorm sports. New ideas were proposed for a suggestion box and for a student day. How- ever, all of the things discussed were for the most part in the stage of infancy wait- ing to be matured by the student council and prefects.
