Glee Club Ill, Il, I: Octet I: League Soccer Captain l.
On a sunny Friday late in September, l946, a large package arrived in the mail at
the steps of the crumbling old Athenaeum. This box, postmarked Chagrin Falls, contained a
stamp album. a guide on behavior as a sophomore, and last, but not least, our good friend,
Bill Adams. "I.Q." has been here with us at Reserve ever since. When he is not rallying
his league soccer team, he is planning his weekends and Saturday leaves so that he can
spend as much time as possible at home. where he may be seen batting around in his
famous Plymouth. Although he can tell you how many days are left in the present temi,
Bill is proud of his class and his school.
Ever since our sophomore year we have had Doug's smiling face among us. Although
occasionally violent when the Republicans are being slandered, he is usually his efficient
and amiable self. Upon him we love to load jobs like writing minutes and keeping records.
I-le does them well too and manages to keep the sense of humor that many secretary-
treasurers before him have lost! Doug is also a redoubtable performer on the football field,
where his team battered its way Cand its playersl to second place in the league. But.
counting all the above as nothing, Doug thinks of his table tennis ability as his greatest
glory. ll you ever want to get in good with him, just ask him about the time he played the

The residents of C.C. thought that a good prospect for bed-making was Sheldon S.
Cohen, a new boy with a genial nature, who persisted in taking senior privileges. Sheddy
comes from Barberton cmd hopes to go on to Yale. He played league soccer and was the
only player who had a girl with a car waiting to take him to the gym after every game.
It Sheldon gets an inleriorty complex this year, it will surprise no one. He lives with John
t"Stand still and I'll show you how I block"J Thomas. What's that, Sheldon? Oh, Sheddy
wants us to tell you that the girl with the car is his sister. What did you say? Oh. Oh! He
says that a certain party down East might read this and not understand!
In 1931, the middle ot the depression, the lowest days of the nation's history, who
should be born but Rollin DeVere! He has frequented the Honor Roll and Honorable Mention
lists, however, in spite of this "depressing" beginning! "Why aren't those jerseys clean,
DeVere?" "But, Teb. I was down practicing at the Music Building." You can see from this
gymnasium scene how "Rollo's" interests are divided. He has been an exceptionally
efficient manager ol the football team tor the past two years. He is equally as diligent,
it not more so, in working at his piano. In the spring Rollin is seen with the track team
as broad or high jumper. Whatever it is, track, swimming, piano, or studies, Rollin works
hard and gets results!

hockey sticks, a pair of ice skates, a lack of modesty, and a laundry case full of illegal
food. It seems that Ed's favorite hangout is table thirty-five, better known as the reform
table. It is here that he spends most of his time while in the dining hall. In the winter Ed
devotes a considerable period to wrestling. He can be seen even on Saturdays and Sundays
practicing this sport while skating on the hockey pond. If you ever have an opportunity
to look him up, search the campus for a well-dressed senior with the loudest tie you have
even seen. That will be "our I. D."
"Elie Babe" came to Reserve in his junior year and even with this handicap has
become well known and liked by all. In the fall he plays a rough game of football for
Mr, Hallowell's team as defensive halfback. He is known also for his terrific appetite: in
fact he eats like a bird peck by peck. Like all other boys Efie is going to college to learn
how to be a successful retired banker. This lucky college will probably be Colby in
Waterville, Maine. His wonderful sense of humor and engaging laugh have won him great
fame among the multitude of jokesters here at Reserve. We don't like to lose him, but we
realize that Colby will gain in the exchange.

During the sophomore year of the "forty-niners" a tall blonde from the West entered
Reserve. Californian Skip fitted right into the Reserve way. His quiet but spirited manner
added from the start to the spirit of his class and school. He was always ready to help in
everything. In the ranks of his numerous likes football and baseball rank high. During his
junior year Skip roomed with Tom Lewis and reports that his only dislike is the way Tom
drives a car. We wish Skip all the duck and success we know he'll have with his broad
smile and winning personality. These are the results of an essentially good nature which
his classmates have discovered and which they will miss.
Bob is very quick at seeing the funny side of life. and with his rather piercing laugh
is able to cause one deuce of a rumpus. On the other hand. Bob is quite an old gentleman
of the Academy and is worked pretty hard in order to graduate. He is a prodigious eater,
and it is very hard to determine how he gets assignments finished at all. Bob has an
uncanny way of arguing: he goes on talking you down until you are forced to surrender:
he is the type of chap who sticks to his own theories. bless them, and is not easily converted.
If we have any riotous boys in the community who need a rowdy argument, let them merely
go to Bob Harrison.

Any sunny weekend that comes along you're likely to find Dick at his hobby, painting.
His ability with the brush and oils is considerable as his work and his prizes will testiiy.
In addition he has had a one man show in Cutler Hall and has exhibited his work in other
local schools. Always quiet and reserved, Dick is rarely heard, but his active participation
in many school activities is a glowing tribute to his spirit. Do not conclude lrom this that
putzing is beneath his dignity. It's not! His high grades, his quiet good manners. his sense
ot humor and his unseltish cooperation have made Dick a most valued member of the
school and his class. We are sure he will go Iar.
Frank came to Reserve in the middle of his junior year in '48, "Mountain Dew"
Herbert hails lrom way down south in Dixie. However, Frank now resides in Bogota,
Columbia, in South America. This gay, wandering troubadour has made many a dog howl
with his guitar and tenor voice. A member ol the Glee Club for his junior year, Frank
joined the Octet as a senior. He played league football in the tall, took body-building in
the winter, and went out tor pole-vaulting in the spring. Although he was not at the top oi
his class along with "Brain" Brassert and "The Boys", he made an enviable record that l
anyone would be proud to have. Frank is sure to be successful in whatever he takes up l
as his future career.

The name "Philderks" will no doubt remain on the top of the records as Reserve's
lastest dresser and longest sleeper. Phil naturally likes to sleep, for he was born and bred
in the Ohio River valley. He calls his home town Cincinnati. Coming here in his sophomore
year. he made many friends. not only with his sparkling smile but with his carelree and
lriendly manner. It is a rare day in good weather when you don't see Phil practicing on the
tennis courts or, when the weather is bad, swinging his racket indoors. We will always
remember Phil tor his fondness for physics reports and Council Dances and be confident
that the same good nature will win him hosts of friends at Carleton.

The most obvious tact about Andy is his size. Although he was considerably smaller

Although Bob entered Reserve in his junior year. he has made for himself a record
few boys equal in four years. First of all, when he came. he usurped the class standings
of several would-be kings, even though it is reported that he frequented his closet at all
hours of the night to do it. Secondly, he combined his high marks with a dangerously low
merit score a rare occurrence indeed. During his senior year he has made his own place
as a sixty-minute guard on the football team. To be better fit for his job as a prefect, Bob
went out tor body-building this past winter, With his tall. strong figure and long. muscular
amis he makes a vivid impression on his freshmen their minds and elsewhere!
During his four years at Reserve Walt has been the undisputed math king of his
class. He figures that his good grades and the weather average out in an interesting
manner. He reigns at school and gets rained on while at school. Walt's subtle sense of
humor is enhanced by his ability to keep a poker face when telling a joke or a yam. His
answer to obvious questions is an invariable popping of his eyes in a most insulting
manner. One oi his outstanding mannerisms is an expressive little smile that he changes
at will to a sneer, smirk, snarl, or his usual grin of good nature. Although essentially quiet,
Walt frequently shows the brass in Brassert by his ability to assert himself when need be.

"BH," has developed a widespread tradition at Reserve since his first days here,
Loaded trays hitting the floor have made him a dining hall favorite, and he claims that
his record as "four'letter man" at Mr. McGill's table has distinqni-:hed him further, Hum
still recalls his first year when he was known as ScotCh's favorite fighter, He claims that
there is no substitute for hard fighting to raise the old average fblue book or otherwisel. A
soccer player, he carries a lot of weight in the booter lineup. Now and then one can see
him leaving for a Saturday on his motorcycle, but he never misses a game or a rally. His
good humor and laudable qualities sum up his Reserve tradition, which we'll long remember.
David Buchanan hails from that ever-so-clean city of Bath. After dutiful scanning of
the public organs of expression, we can find only one other distinction about Bath, Ohio
it holds square dances Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. Thus, from such a notable region,
David entered the Hudson school for boys meeting its major requirement. David is one of
those too few individuals at Reserve who are really helping to build Mr. Dodge's "wall,"
He generously understands mistaken words or actions by teacher and student alike. He is
not so retiring as to be reclusive, nor is he so effervescent as to be boring. David is a
person to be safely relied upon, even though on occasions he actually attends those
geometric contrivances of Beelzebub.

Gerry is one of the illustrious four-year men in the class of '49. Although his home
is Evanston, he loves to tell the boys that he is a Northwoodsman from the Upper Peninsula.
The times were few and far between that the prefects thought it wise to lay the oak on
this gentleman. "Careful Cal's" theory of studying is a good putz or bull session during
study period and then getting up at 5 a.m. to glance over the homework of the day. His
unconscious sense of humor has given many a Reservite a chuckle. Numerous ball
carriers will never forget the big white 6 that stopped them as they tried to plunge through
the right side of the Reserve football line.
For the past year our presence has been graced by that stalwart favorite son of the
great "Republican" state oi Rhode Island, Ed Clifford. At first, his prime objective seemed
to be organizing Reserve into a Dewey-Warren Club, but, aiter even his home state fell
by the wayside in the smashing defeat oi his ticket, he retired behind his stacks of
obsolete compaign material to map out plans for the next great crusade against the
"Democrats." A true master at the ancient art of pitchfork-wielding, he has proven his
forensic ability daily in English IV, where he has engaged in semantic duels with other
members of the renowned Clifford-Levy-Hall Debating Society. "The Democratic dynasty
can't go on forever", he moans.

At Reserve the name Herwig brings to mind many varied thoughts. Alter three
years the majority of people have come to consider Ted as an amiable. happy-go-lucky
Iellow who does, however, apply himself enough to attain good scholastic marks. While
blessed with considerable gray matter. Ted can be nevertheless downright provoking in
class and elsewhere. But his overwhelming degree ol sincerity and oh-soesimple humor
have marked him vividly as a campus character. Ted has never excelled in athletics but
has always given a respectable account of himself. From his recent lite on the Iamily farm
"Horsewig" Kas he is now calledl has become noted for a corny variety of hayseed humor.
Ted would, quite probably, pawn his only shirt to help you.
For one short year we have been honored by the presence ot a dashing young
Englishman. Bob, who particularly wished to go to school in the far West and see Calitornia,
was sent to Hudson. However, this put him well at ease, since Reserve weather so con-
stantly reminds him oi London logs. Making him Ieel even more at home is a certain someone
down in Lima who keeps Bob's thoughts quite well occupied. Upon arriving he immediately
took to the soccer lield and proved to be well worth the letter he won. He also has done a
good job upholding the traditional dignity and good sportsmanship maintained by previous
exchange students, while his amiable nature has won for him many lasting friends here
Iohnny Hills joined Western Reserve Academy last year after moving from the sunny
state of Florida to the notltoo-sunny town of Hudson. Being a town boy he has missed the
happy. carefree dormitory life. However, he has been seen frequently in Cutler and Carroll
Cutler the last two years getting assignments and otherwise disrupting dorm life. This year
he is Commodore of the Western Reserve Sailing Club and has recently been admitted to
the United States Power Squadron. Most of his free time is spent hunting rabbits and other
game in the fields behind his house. He usually attends the dances, showing a slight
preference for Cleveland girls, although he hasn't been hooked by anyone yet.
Though Don, as yet. has not switched to Seven Up, he may well be acclaimed as
one of Reserve's "Men of Distinction." Always well groomed, he has proved himself to be
an excellent salesman for his father, a well-known Cleveland clothier. At the beginning of
his sophomore year Iake immediately made for himself many lasting friendships. His
amiable character soon became a prominent part of campus activities. When in an Octet
or Glee Club rehearsal, Don supplies that needed volume in the bass section. Yellow-green
seems to be Iake's favorite color. Proof of this lies in one Chrysler coupe which creates
quite an issue when driven in the sunshine. For Don's sake let us say, "May her fenders
forever remain uncrinkled!"

From the thriving metropolis of Stow, somewhere between here and West Virginia,
came Hugh Iae. To his friends he is noted for his carefreeness and friendliness. To the rest
of the school he has become distinguished as an outstanding athlete, At dances after football
games the girls usually confront him with, "Oh, you're the guy who ran sixty-five yards for
a touchdown." On Mondays "Smorgie" comes to class camouflaged by four days' growth
of beard. Perhaps Hugh is best known by the "Stow-Silver Lake Mob." but even we
"outsiders" admire him. Although Hugh attends a few Reserve dances. he prefers the Stow
square dances. Hugh will long be remembered by the class of '49, the coaches, and all
those who knew him, for his friendliness and athletic ability.
Back in the fall of '45 a small, undernourished freshman, singing praises of the
Toledo Mudhens, made his debut at Reserve. As years passed this little boy became a big
boy and changed his loyalty to the Toledo "chicks" and the Detroit Tigers. While growing
up. this blond athlete made many friends. In fact. he became one of the ringleaders of his
class. The school thought he was so unworthy that he was made a "defect" in Cutler. When-
ever we hear there's been a major putz, we can be sure that Mase directed it or that it was
directed against him. Although he favors the Tigers, Mase is one of the warmest and most
sincere fellows in the class of '49.

During the past four years the hallowed halls of Reserve have echoed to the tread
of Tom Lewis, the strangler from the Rubber City. Tom's souped-up Oldsmobile and collec-
tion of guns have been the terror of both Akron and Hudson. Their inhabitants know that
a puff of smoke may be followed by his speeding car or by a hail of buckshot. He has
also been seen speeding on the soccer field and at the Council dances. Tom played right-
half on the varsity squad and hard-to-get on the dance floor. His love for guns and hunting
has made him one of the best marksmen in school. Tom has been a hard worker and a
sportsman in every sense of the word. .
During the track season one may hear such phrases as "Mac, where's the shot?" or
"Hey Mac, when are you going to dig up the pit?" These words are directed to lohnny
MacDonell, probably the most efficient and colorful manager Reserve has ever had. Once
Mac is assigned to a job, you may be sure that the job. whatever it may be. will be done
to the utmost of his ability. Iohn is noted for his sense of humor, which he not only freely
uses around the dormitories but also carries to the football fields along with his two-hundred
and some pounds. Mac's sense of humor is enforced by his calm speech and manner, which
have frequently poured oil on troubled waters.
If you were to see an English convertible containing a blonde or a brunette Iyou
never know whichl and an "R" sweater with two stripes. you would know immediately
that its driver was lim Maples. Two letters have been awarded him in soccer and three more
as a member of the wrestling squad. He can really hold those shoulders down for three
seconds! His clothes, with blue predominating. fit him well on every occasion. Nothing
bothers him very much for very long. He smiles a lot, peps up the discouraged. studies
when necessary, reflects the school spirit, and is a genius at promoting campus pranks.
lim has spent some time in England and now lives in Akron. He admits he doesn't know
where he is going to college.
It was tour long years ago when Roger Marshall dropped anchor on the Athenaeum

last spring but turned back alter he had run aground on four freshmen. Roger remarked ,Dx
that this occurred because he had forgotten his compass. Roger is also one of the tlashbulb
boys. At almost every local event he can be seen using his equipment to help create chaos.
So, as you can see. Roger has become a distinctive part of the Reserve scene. '

"D.C." started his career at Reserve on the notorious fourth floor of the Athenaeum.
However, Don did much in his next three years to make up for this. I-Ie has been a foureyear
Glee Club member and its president his senior year and has contributed several original
compositions to the spring concerts, earning his nick-name, "Grinder" by being one Ol Mr.
Clewell's star organ pupils. Don earned his first "R" on Mr. Roundy's soccer squad his
junior year and scored a repeat again this season. He is a prefect on third floor Cutler and
is a member of the Student Council. Don is well liked by everyone who knows him and is
sure to be a success in any field he enters.
Dave entered Reserve as a sophomore from Erie, Pa. This dark-haired "probing
prefect" better known as Ajax added much to any gathering. whether a pep rally or a bull
session. The shape of his face when whistling loud and shrill at a football game was
indeed a sight to behold. Personality plus. along with his infectuous laugh made Ajax one
of the best liked inmates of North Hall during his senior year. After all regular curricular
work was done. he still had time for cheerleading and playing in the rally band. At times
one could hear the somewhat scrambled notes of a trumpet emerging from room seven
North. Who could it be? Not Bonebrake-Mercy no. lt was Ajax!

Who is this I see riding his English bicycle this way? Why, it is mein Walterchen!
At Reserve Walt has added considerably to the school lite. One always sees Wally with
a big, winning smile and with his hands placed nonchalantly in his coat pockets. When
wit is called for. one can depend on Wally to supply it. He makes friends easily and keeps
them. Although he now comes from the Windy City, he likes to have his windows closed
at night. Having served gloriously in the Glee Club, Walter has scaled the ladder to even
more glory by becoming a member ol that famous group of twelve, the Octet. Wally will
undoubtedly go on with even a better record through college.
During his Iour-year stay at Reserve as a day boy, "Murph" has always had a good
word for everyone, as his mates will testify. The lall term finds him lighting hard from his
haltback position on the varsity soccer team. He is an accomplished swimmer and has
added much to the success ol the team, particularly during the past two years. In the
spring, he baffles the batters with his southpaw slants from the pitching hill. He has added
much to many classroom discussions, and his thoughts and opinions are considered with
respect by a great many. His ready smile, pleasing countenance, and willingness to work
hard are as typically Irish as his name suggests. Iohnny always will be remembered by
his classmates as a real guy.

Who's the boy over there handing out that literature? Why that looks like Albert
Myers. Say. are you a good Democrat? Albert certainly is. This Democrat has organized a
Young Democrats Club on the Reserve campus. and, according to "Governor" Myers, the
country would be better off with fewer Republicans. But politics, Reserve has discovered,
are not his only interest. Proof of this is Albert's room in North, which not only displays
prominently a picture oi President Truman but also numerous travel posters from his Akron
travel agency. So. in future years we may hear of a travel agent running for governor on
the Democratic ticket. In any event, politics at Reserve these past years would have been
quite dull without the aid of this politician.
One foggy day in September 1945 a little South African Dodo stepped off the
ERASMUS SMITH at New York and was rushed under close guard to Hudson. Here, Nick
caught an affliction known as merit-score-itis which the valiant Athenaeum prefects never
quite succeeded in curing. Dormant during his Sophomore year while Nick made the
honor roll, the malady reappeared during his Iunior year and drove him into the wide fields
of "engineering" where, incidentally, he got the material for his best seller, "For, Who
Tolls the Bell?" During his senior year merit-score-itis seemed cured CYes, sir, Scotch, it does
look suspicious, but . . . ll. Dodo settled down to discharge his prefectorial duties and campus
responsibilities with a cheerful attitude not soon to be forgotten by Reserve..

When Bob Peterson came to Reserve four years ago, everyone liked him at once.
As the years went by, Bob showed what he could do. He began by gathering letters here
and there until now he has six. He also was elected to the Student Council. and the boys
of Cutler Hall have known his power as a prefect. Whatever Bob has attempted he has
done well, and his persistence is bound to accomplish much fn the future. There is just about
nothing that big Swede Peterson can't do on a football field, if he can see far enough to
do it without glasses. We'll look for great things from Pete in the full assurance that he

Alex, versatile member of the "organ grinding trio", has put in four devoted years
at Reserve. Being prefect in Cutler Hall as well as Student Council president shows that
Alex is popular with his class. For two years he has been the first diver on the swimming
team. Spring finds him taking many first in the pole-vaulting event. Soccer is his sport in
the fall, where he is found in the halfbaclr position. In addition to all his activities the
name of Post may frequently appear on the Honor Roll. Weekends find him in Akron
cooking up something with "Mother" Mell, At dances it is very easy to locate Alex when
the tempo is fast. for he and his date are the only ones on the dance floor.
Ken came to Reserve in his junior year. After establishing a foothold on the thfrd
floor of Cutler, he immediately started out on one of the greatest pilgrimages ever known
to Reserve. Some say he is looking for the Holy Grail, and others conclude he is looking
for a lost shoe string. The loping gait, which he uses while roaming the corridors of C.C.
and Cutler in his quest, has earned him the nickname of "Cmising Ken". His favorite
pastime is reading the magazines in the C.C. four-room combination, and his favorite
sport is taming the wild boys of C.C. He has a sense of humor which was more recently

Iohn thold-that-pose! Rechsteiner arrived on the campus four years ago from the
distant metropolis of Akron. Many were the nights during his freshman year when shrieks
could be heard echoing through the halls of the Athenaeum as poor "I. Q.". a victim

character had accidentally dropped the mattress out of the window. Neatness in both work
and dress are two of Iohn's outstanding characteristics. "Oh. I have been scroqgedlu is a

Iohn Rossteld was born in Lima, Ohio, on May 1, 1931, of sound body and doubtful
mind. He has plenty of personality as those who know him realize. During his four years
at Reserve he has been an ardent member of the Glee Club, Orchestra and Rally Band.
His musical compositions have been received enthusiastically at the Spring Music Festivals
held each year. His Colgate smile and a sharp sense of humor are characteristic. As chief
movie operator, Iohn saw to it that a movie was shown every Saturday night in the gym.
At commencement time one may hear a chorus of voices chanting, "So long, Iohnny, it
has been a pleasure to know you". It would appear to be a "rosy" future for Rossfeld.
One of the most eager beavers of the day boys from "Stow Pond" is Bill Sharp.
Since entering W.R.A. in 1945, Willie has never been able to make the five-plus list, but
he has made up for this by his prowess on the athletic field where his record speaks for
itself. His good sense of humor and cooperative spirit have won him many friends who will
always remember him as cr regular guy. Although on the W,R.A. campus Willie does not
show his affections for the weaker sex, he is very active in this field especially with the
girls from Stow High. Bill still maintains that he could have taken Senior Rock by himself
during his junior year, if it hadn't been raining so hard one night.

Three years ago a tall. blond, gangling youth entered Reserve slightly bewildered.
During those three years the masters and the boys have come to know Chuck as a rather
quiet and retiring boy, although always friendly and sincere. He and the school have
mutually benefited from each other's presence. He has continually improved in athletics
since he arrived, especially in swimming and track, and this year has been a mainstay on
both squads. His ability to get along with other pecple is not confined to his own sex
elther as he is to be found at most council dances. Chuck has established himself as a
regular guy in every circumstance and the University of Rochester will profit next year
by Reserve's loss.
"You mean you have the nerve to insinuate that you even come close to being socially
equal to a senior? My poor misinformed boy, you aren't .... " Thus one hears Tom,
sell-admitted leader of the Senior Discipline Committee, laying down the law to some
trembling innocent. If anybody could make the underclassmen believe that the seniors
were to be respected and obeyed, Captain was the person for the job. His persuasive
talents were known elsewhere as is attested by his reputation at local girls' schools.
However, he condescended to take enough time out from his disciplinary duties and social
obligations to do sufficient work to remain well up in his class both scholastically and
athletically. Tom's kind will be missed next fall, we fear.

Entering Reserve four years ago as a freshman, Bill soon established himselt both
as a student and a solid citizen ot the school. As one ot the more steady members ot Mr.
Clewell's baritone section and as a league soccer captain, he has exhibited spirited leader-
ship. However, this sense ot command is not equally evident when it comes to girls, proot
ot which lies in the tact that he likes to pick up where his roommates have lett oft. Though
Bill has lived in New Iersey the past two years, he has not become overstufted with
Eastern culture. His boisterous laugh and everpresent sense oi lun helps to make him one
ot the best liked fellows in the class as well as the school at large.
Entering the aged halls ol North, a stranger would probably be greeted by a warm
"hello" from the new senior inmate from Portsmouth. Iohnny is always ready to hold up
his end ot a bull session with tales ot the wild beasts and even wilder lite around the shores
ot the Ohio River. His ability in tootball quickly earned him the position oi center on the
tighting eleven. where he played a truly great game. Aside from his interests on the
athletic tield, "Large Boy" also has a great interest in Boston. Iohn is always arguing that
Portsmouth is in the deep South, and one could hardly doubt this because ot his typically
southern hospitality and triendliness. He should be a good citizen ot Colgate in the years

lack appeared on the Reserve campus as a lowly freshman and immediately began to
influence the Academy's peaceful life. He quickly succeeded in becoming an intricate and
troublesome part of the machine by causing his share of grief and consternation to the
masters, this technique proving that he was a regular fellow. l-le has striven valiantly to
overcome the disadvantage of being a day boy from the great metropolis of Silver Lake
and has made some success with the chore. lack has maintained good grades and has by
some accident proved his merits in football. basketball and baseball, by means of which
he has earned a place in the inner-sanctum of the "R" Club. Having had a Heservite
brother before him and another to follow, the Timmis tradition will go on.
"Troesch" came to Reserve as a play boy--'excuse me4day boy in his junior year.
From then on he demonstrated his good humor, his rousing school spirit and his ability
both to give and take a joke. On the more pleasant days at Reserve he can be seen
earnestly pedaling about the campus on his bicycle built for two. If one followed him. he
might possibly- just possibly' prevail upon the rebel to demonstrate one of his latest card
tricks. Then again, one might see him trying to sell a dubious freshman a pair of "fingerless"
gloves or "non-blowout" balloons, Whether it be sports or studies. he approaches either

After three years at Reserve where he had a darn good time each year, Carl ol
course returned for a fourth. One ol our more popular classmates, Carl always comes up
with a good retort when the occasion demands. On weekends he provided transportation
to and from Cleveland, stopping only long enough for a little date. Carl fought for the
position of tackle on the varsity football team in the fall and went out for track in the spring.
He hasn't had a dull moment in three years with girls, motorcycle cops, and Dean Mickel.
Besides interest in cars and the fairer sex ldid you mention sports?l, Carl's scholarship
has rated at the top constantly. We're all proud to have had the likable Doc in our class,
Since his freshman year George has been one of the class leaders. He has taken
an active part in soccer and baseball. It was seldom that his name was not on the Honor
Roll. Occasionally, of course, he putzed like every other Reservite. His smooth way with
the ladies made him as popular with them as he was with his fellow classmates. Like his
brother he never gave one girl his class ring without getting his pin back from another.
On the Senior Discipline Committee he saw to it that all under-classmen got their just
rewards for stepping on Senior Campus. George should succeed in life, for he has an
ability to make the best of a situation and can make his way with people.

Before graduation in Iune, 1949. there were few boys who could have boasted about
a passing grade in third year Latin, the award of athletic lettters, and a set of 600 points
on a six-no-trump bid. These outstanding characteristics comprise the physical powers and
mental attainments of Nick Williams. From the time he lirst arrived at Reserve in 1946
until the day he graduated. there was never a dull moment in the dormitories when he
was on hand. If ever there was a friendly free-for-all in somebody's room, it would have
been a safe bet that our hero was connected with it in some way. Nick, regardless of his
shortcomings. was liked by all. Gradually he became an invaluable member of the Reserve
Four years ago another Wingard, this one short, stocky, and with a butch haircut,
registered as a freshman at Seymour Hall. It wasn't long before his qualities as an athlete
were placed in evidence. Since his Sophomore year Dan has held down a position on the
varsity football team. His solid frame, described well by his nickname "Cruncher", and
nourished by a tremendous appetite, suggests his ability at middleweight wrestling. His
splendid trumpet playing has been a noted addition to the school orchestra. Dan's group of
day-boy friends say sportsmanship and genuine friendliness are his outstanding traits. and
these he shares generously with all. Heservites are confident that Dan's hopes and ambitions
will be rewarded in years to come.
Eddie is the lady killer of our class. He has a girl in every port, but Akron seems
to have captivated his heart. The reason, you ask? More girls! Ed. is the only fellow in
captivity who can correspond with five girls at the same time and still improve his grades.
Hes got connections in New York that do him no harm! Besides his good looks Ed is
loaded with school spirit. This prefect from the Athenaeum is always willing fo give
his all to 'W.R.A. On the playing fields no fullback has ever had more drive than Ed. In the

With his hom-rimmed glasses and a solemn appearance Tom might give the impres-

always come first with him. Excelling in swimming, Tom also held his own on the football,
wrestling, and track squads. Known to be a putz-boy, he seldom lets an opportunity go by
without participating. Although "Du Bois" is slightly shy toward the opposite sex, he
always seems to appear at all the social tunctions with the best-looking girls. As a member
oi the Senior Discipline Committee he spends many an evening study period thinking up
fiendish punishments. Tom will be long remembered by his many lriends lor his pep and

Those who distinguished themselves heretofore continued to do so. Fritz Mosher, Dick Carle,
Phil Thornton, Scotty McPherson, Wilson Augustine, Danny Mickel and Eric Gillett were still con-
sidered the brains. Ted Nyerges, Stu Parry, King MacBride, Red Huston and Pete Garfield contrib-
uted much of the brawn. With such a galaxy of intellect and muscles, it seemed unwise to bring
pressure to bear for anything but good.

THE SQDFKEI MGDEHES
As the termination of another school year draws near, the class of "Sl" breathes more easily
and rejoices in the knowledge that through nine months of exhaustive labor it has taken one more
stride toward the venerated status of Alumni.
Not entirely devoid of talent, the Sophs have managed to turn out their share of athletes and
scholars. Some of those exceptionally skilled in the application of pen, pencil and "classroom
manner" include Phil Meytarth, Chan Stevens, Charles Ferguson. Paul Warner, Ronald Hess, lack
Childs and Lee Zuker. Those aspiring to athletic fame were Bill Fall, Bob Little, Pete Fuhrman,
George Evans and Brewster Kneen.
Although the better part of the year has been concentrated on improving the mind and the
body, the boys have not overlooked spirit, and through their intensive efforts they have aided and
abetted one of Reserve's most time-honored traditions-the putz.

From the day when the class ot "52" took its place on the campus, the old Athenaeum rocked
and rolled with the sound of many putzes. "Uncle Iiggs", warden and keeper, ruled with an iron
hand as many of the young blades will witness. A gala Christmas party and enjoyable dances
gave the year a moderate aspect of pleasure and recreation.
Throughout the class there were various and sundry characters who gave promise ot leader-
ship. Among those distinguished in scholarly matters were Warburton, Woloch, Detjens, Mickel,
Loos and Irwin. Sparking the athletic teams were the personages ot Kaplan, Epstein, Gramentine,
Mathews, Schoonover and Bill Davidson. Scattered throughout the Frosh were a multitude of
vigorous personalities who rolled through the year without a mishap.
So when the class of "52" gallantly packs its gear and trudges over the well-worn path to
Cutler next tall, it will bear in mind this one thought, "IUST WAIT UNTIL WE'HE SENIORSV'

With eight returning lettermen to spark the team, Reserve's warriors had the most successful
season since 1943, winning six and losing two. They began with marked success, taking the first
six games in a row while the squad as a whole improved with each game. The Pioneers were
given their first taste of defeat at Parma when a last period rally, in which they scored 14 points in
five minutes. failed to prove sufficient for victory. In the final game of the season they bowed to
a more powerful team representing University School. The Pioneers boasted a strong forward wall
and were assisted in the backfield by the elusive running of Iae, Winslow and Sharp and by
Timmis' capable passing.

At the outset of the 1948 soccer season the expectations were neither favorable nor gloomy
ior, while nine players had played on the champion team of the previous year, the task remained
to form a team which could work together. If any one conclusion may be drawn from the rather
unimpressive record of this year's boosters, it is the consistently close scores of every contest.
Only thirteen goals was the difference between victory or loss in the six setbacks inflicted upon
Reserve. While the line fought consistently to penetrate the opponents' defenses, the backfield
deserves the highest praise for its excellent job of halting enemy attacks. Much credit should go to
Captain Iohn Nicholson for his excellent leadership throughout the season and to Don Mell and

Had the " '49" Reserve quintet been able to hit its stride in the last three games, all of which
were league contests, the record for this past season would have been considerably higher than
the 500 percentage achieved. Ted Nyerges, garnering most of his points from near the foul strip,
threw in 193 points to lead the team in scoring while Captain Hugh Iae and Iack Timmis, shooting
from their forward positions, totaled nearly 300 between them.
In the guard slots 6'3" Hall Pilskaln and Ed Winslow showed exceptional ball handling and

Again this year Coach Larry Ricker turned out one of Reserve's perennially excellent swim-
ming teams. Though losing three meets, including one to one of the best teams produced by Uni-
versity School in many years and two to Canton McKinley and Shaker Heights, who very prob-
ably will finish first and second in the state meet, the squad really stuck a feather in its cap when
it won from last year's state champs, Cleveland East Tech. The University School contest was a
heart breaker as Reserve's four freestylers, Lillich, Wood, Stephens and Simmon, were very nar-
rowly beaten in the last event to break a tie and give University the meet.
Excellent performances were turned in continually by the four freestylers as well as Captain
Bill Sharp and Iohn Murphy in the breaststroke. Bruce Klneen and Tom Swanston in the back-
stroke events and divers Alex Post and Carl Apthorp garnered their full 'share of points for the

With a hard schedule and the return of only three lettermen the grapplers did not have a very
successful season. Strength in the upper weights was offset by inexperience in the lower brackets.
The team found the going too hard, wrestling such formidable opponents as the state champs in
Cleveland's West Tech and two unusually strong squads in University and Shadyside.
Cocaptain Dan Wingard was undefeated throughout the season, while co-captain lim Maples,
Pete Garfield and Red Huston managed to win a majority of their matches. There were a number
of young boys on the squad this year who showed considerable ability and who should do much
to strengthen next year's team. Iim Gramentine, Ian Schoonover, George Evans, Sid Kaplan, Dan
Mickel, Bob Little and Pete Garfield are among the regulars who will be back next year.

The track outlook seemed to indicate another successful season when a large squad including
five lettermen reported for the first practice early in April. Although most of the dash men gradu-
ated last year, Howie Walker, Don Mell and Ted Nyerges were counted on for points in the sprints.
Ierry Callahan and Dave Buchanan were the key men in the middle distance events and the
In the hurdles Nick Williams and Dan Wingard seemed to have the edge, while Buchanan.
King MacBride, Chuck Stephens and Dan Mickel were being counted on for points in the distance
events. In the field events Reserve looked to Ieff Keener and Pete Garfield who both showed good
prospects in the weights last year, and in the pole vault Alex Post was expected to continue his
winning form. The Pioneers are always a strong contender in Interstate League track, and this
year should prove no exception.

With the return of lettermen Hal Pilskaln, Mitch Barnes and Phil Alderks, who were fairly con-
sistent winners on last year's team, the tennis prospects for the spring looked favorable. Ed Wins-
low, Eric Gillett and Paul Hyde, who had already shown their ability on the B squad, were expected
to strengthen the 1949 netters. Iohn Thomas, Ed Clifford and Iohn Hall, all new boys this year, have
had experience at other schools and should contribute much to a winning squad.
Although faced with a difficult schedule, especially in league competition where good tennis
is the order of the day, the netters showed rnuch enthusiasm in early practice, and under the care-
ful and capable tutelage of Coach Culver the boys should be able to cope with the stifiest

With the initial practice this spring Coaches Theibert and Clewell were greeted by a turnout
of 7 lettermen and 3 numeral winners from last year's comparatively successful nine. The letter-
men were iniielders Bob Peterson, Hugh Iae and Mase Iones, and outfielders lim Bonebrake,
George Williams, Doug Read and lack Timmis. Phil Thornton, an infielder, Tim Wagner, who
works behind the plate and sophomore Pete Fuhrmann, a pitcher of high promise, merited their
numerals last year.
Williams and Timmis. both 300 hitters, were the leading returning stickmen, while Iae played
flawless ball at his shortstop position during the '48 campaign.
Teb had a tough schedule for the team, including such clubs as Cleveland Collinwood and
Cleveland Shaw, but with considerable competition for every position, the boys were expected to
bring honor to the Green and White.

The purpose of the School Council is to act as a liaison between the faculty and the student
body in such a way that by effective cooperation improvements in school morale and operation
may be made. Each class in the school is represented on the Council with five of the eleven boys
elected by the senior class. This year's Council under the leadership of Alex Post, president, and
Doug Ahrendt, secretary, has sponsored three Council dances, taken the responsibility for opera-
tion of the new Cutler playroom and presented many student ideas in the form of recommenda-
tions to the faculty. The most successful achievement of the group this year, however, was the
very effective execution of the big brother system on registration day. Every member of the 48-49
School Council has displayed his qualities of leadership by guiding the student body to a year
memorable both in school spirit and accomplishment.

During the spring term great care is taken in the selection of twelve members of the junior
class to serve as prefects in the Athenaeum and Cutler Hall. These boys are chosen for scholastic
ability, participation in extracurricular activities, and for their talents in cooperation. The prefects,
who are equally divided between the two underclass dorms, have been a great asset to the school
and very helpful to masters as a result of their mature supervision in the management of the dor-
mitories. These "junior faculty members" have given competent advice and assistance to younger
boys in the new and different life of the Academy. The prefects of 1948-49 have justified every
faith placed in them by energetically and efficiently discharging their many duties.

Made up of about forty members who are chosen at auditions by the director, Mr. Clewell,
the Glee Club acts as a Chapel and Vesper choir besides giving several concerts during the year.
The group in its semi-weekly meetings prepares special numbers for Vesper services and its con-
cert appearances. Included in the itinerary each year is a Christmas program, joint performances
with Laurel School and the choirs of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Akron. It also takes a leading
part in the annual May festival given by the Academy Music Department. This past year the Glee
Club has shown excellent musicianship and has been greatly aided by the officers and by the
heads of the repertory and planning committees. Training in this activity provides assistance in
sight reading and voice development to all boys who aspire to be singers.

issues of national interest. Members are chosen from honor students in the history department.
Mr. Roundy acted as faculty advisor the past year and with Miss Kelly's aid in the library assisted
the boys in assembling material for the questions discussed. Meetings are always preceded by
dinner, after which the customary procedure includes formal speeches followed by open discus-
sion directed by a student chairman. The Mugwumps learn through their meetings the methods
of organized thinking and informal discussion which encourages them to be better qualified
citizens of the future.

This group is the Reserve branch of the nationwide organization of United World Federalists,
whose purpose is to promote public sentiment in favor of a federal government of the world. In
addition to this specific aim the Reserve chapter, which has operated on the campus for a year
and a half, wishes to promote a general awareness of international affairs among all the students.
By sponsoring movies, by distributing literature, and by presenting speakers both from the student
body and from outside, the Reserve Federalists have succeeded in keeping the school informed
about the important issues in which they are interested.

Early last spring the present senior staff members assumed the editing and management of
the Academy's newspaper, the Reserve Record. Since that time under the leadership of Mr.
Reardon and Mr. Kibbe, the editorial board has turned out an interesting and well-written paper
that is eagerly awaited every Thursday evening by faculty and students alike. Articles 'are as-
signed at the Wednesday Record luncheon and assembled and edited the first of the following
week by the five members of the editorial board. The Record staff has published a paper which
is a great asset to school life.

The name, Hardscrabble, for Western Reserve Academy's senior annual has a very logical
origin, It was taken from an article, "Hardscrabble Hellas", which appeared in the Atlantic Monthly
for February, 1927 describing many of the hardships suffered by the students during the early
days of the Academy. This situation is repeated each year when the current staff endures the
tortures of the damned in an attempt to assemble the material for another issue of the yearbook.
This year's staff is composed mainly of seniors who have combined their efforts in photography.
journalism, and art to produce this result. The Hardscrabble's desire is to present an accurate
and interesting record of school life and more particularly the graduating class. The yearbook has
been under the patient and able direction of Mr. Reardon in journalism and Mr. Moos in photo
graphy who have worked hard to turn out a successful commemoration of the year 1948-49.
