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
Last year's soccer team made quite a rec-
ord for itself. It would be fine if this
year's squad could improve its record.

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

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

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

Steak Roast, Siam Club Initiations, Stunts

Last Saturday at'ternoon the annual pic-
nic and steak roast was held. At about

the students and faculty had the oppo1'-

eminent chefs, Monsieur LaBorde and Herr

Sixteen young men were invested into this
secret organization after participating in
the simple initial ritual. Several of the
unfortunates have since tried to gain en-
trance to the club.
Following the outdoor program everyone
moved to the gymnasium where the choos-
ing of Green and White members ensued.
Roth teams thought they had gotten the
best of the bargain and exhibited their
enthusiasm by means of cheering, organ-
ized and otherwise. Soon the teams had a

youths kept their mouths tightly shut.

Improvements Made in
Cutler Common Room
Ever since the common room in Cutler
Hall was completed in 1936, no purchase
of new furniture has been made. When
the room was remodeled, furniture was
contributed by a number of families in
Cleveland. Since the furniture was not very
sturdy, it has depreciated to such an extent
that Dr. Hayden and Mr. Waring decided
last year that a complete replacement or
re-upholstering of all the the furniture in
the room was necessary.
During the summer the school has been
working with a firm of decorators in Cleve-
land. A plan of the room as it will appear
when completed has been made and may
be seen in the common room. Many of the
new pieces of furniture have already ar-
rived. The senior coffee room has been
refurnished and over a dozen of the new
chairs are in the common room at present.
Four large cabinets have been ordered and
should be here shortly. Two of these will
contain the phonograph and the Carnegie
record collection. The other two will be
This project is, of course, a very ex-
pensive one. In spite of the fact that dur-
able as well as attractive furniture has
been chosen, it will not stand up unless
it is treated with care. When completed,
the common room will be a dignified place
to entertain guests, as well as a place 01'

Fireworks, Square Dancing and
Parade Featured at Hudson Festival
Last Saturday night the town of Hudson
hold its annual Fall Festival. The cele-
bration began with a parade which started
at Chapel Street on the Reserve campus.
Featured in the parade were police cars
from the Summit County Sheriff's Ofiice
and the Cleveland Police Department, sev-
eral fioats from the town, the Hudson High
School band and the Parmadale Orphans'
band. The parade went down College
Street, through town, and finally came back
to its starting point to disband.
Later in the evening there was a square
dance and fireworks. At the same time the
Flower Show and the Hobby Show were
open to the public. Unfortunately, only the
parade and the concessions open in the
afternoon could be enjoyed by the Reserve
boys. These fellows attended the steak
roast and other activities at the same time
as the dance in the town.
