Four Appointments Made to Eacultyp Two to Executive Staflp
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
Instructor in manual arts this year will
be Mr. William Moos, Jr. Mr. Moos is a

On August 29 Miss Mary Geoppert,
now Mrs. John Litzell, was married in
the Academy chapel by the Rev. Ray-
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

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-
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.

Maior Problems of
School Delruted at
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
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

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.

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
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.
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
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.

First arrivals back on the old "lawn's

around whom this year's team will be

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-

39 Turn Out for Pre-School Football Practice:
Five 'R' Men Return from '44 Squad
On Friday afternoon, September 7, the
long-deserted practice fields of Reserve
again welcomed the eager shouts and run-
ning feet of pre-school football practice.
In the warm fall sunshine Coach Theibert
administered a brisk calisthenic workout to
the squad, a drill punctuated with grunts
and groans as soft muscles were suddenly
put to work. A large crowd of 39 candi-
dates turned out for this first practice of
the season, and perspiration Howed freely
during the workout.
A look over the multitude reveals several
returning lettermen from last year's squad.
Nicholson, Roush, Joslyn, Vaught and
Howard won their football letters last year.
In addition to these veterans there are
members of last year's squad and league
members plus new Reservites who are all
fighting for the 11 positions on the team.
As the situation now stands, Shepherd
is in the center position, Kaylor and Dewey
at guards, Miller and Kramer at tackles,
Vaught and Howard at ends, Nicholson in
the quarterback spot, Sullivan and Roush
at halfback and Joslyn in the fullback posi-
tion. This lineup is not definite as the
squad has been practicing only a few days,
and many of the positions are still places
Since Friday the team has had two drills
a day and a chalk-talk each evening. Stiff
muscles and fatigue resulted from the first
few days of peppy workouts, but now the
boys are toughening up with calisthenics,
running drills and blocking practice in pre-
paration for a hard season.
"Teh" is now being aided on the coaching
staff by Messrs. Habel and Ellis who
helped pilot the squad last year. Dave
Owen, four-year letterman in football at
Reserve, is also here temporarily to help
Although the team looks fairly light, it
possesses plenty of the fight and enthusi-
asm which makes a ball team. The squad's
first action will be on foreign soil at Kent
Roosevelt on the 29th.
Let's back them up!
Come on, Reserve!

Soccer Squad to Face
University October 20
Saturday afternoon the soccer squad will
swing into action preparing for its first
game, scheduled October 20' with University
School, to be played on home grounds. The
team has a much harder schedule lined up
for this year than it has had for the last
Besides the two games scheduled with
University School, Teb is planning and is
quite sure that Oberlin College will battle
twice with Reserve hooters. Since the team
went to Shadyside last year it is expected
that Shadyside will play a return engage-
ment on home soil. It is not definite yet,
but Mr. Roundy's squad may have a chance
to play Shadyside's team twice during the
This year there are at least six returning
lettermen. Five more have had at least a
year's experience on the varsity soccer
squad but failed to receive their letters.
The front line has four returning "R" men,
Nichols, Kennedy, Critchfield and "Mac"
Pierce. Terry Garrigan, who played left
wing last season, transferred to the foot-
ball squad. Bud Ryan played a great deal
last season in the front line and will prob-
ably make the first squad.
In the halfback positions there are three
returning veterans, two lettermen. Phillips
and Newell, the "R" men, will probably
hold down the outside positions while Dan
Collister fills the center position vacated by
last year's captain, Rollie Cockley. Glen
Carter is the only veteran fullback on the
team. His possible assistant will be John
Miller. The important position of goalie
is still open with many prospects, all with
