Baillie, who is retiring as Chairman of the Appleby College Board of Governors, an office which he has held efficiently since 1966. We dedicated the 1965 issue of the ARGUS to Lady Baillie, whose death that year deprived Appleby of its best friend and benefactor. Her eldest son, Aubrey, has been a worthy successor to his mother as far as the School is concerned. His enthusiastic encourage- ment and his generous financial support are greatly appreciated. Aubrey was a student at Appleby from 1918 to 1927. During his senior years at the School, he displayed consider- able athletic ability and commendable qualities of leadership. His record is impressive: ' 25 ' 26, First Football Team; ' 26 ' 27, First Hockey Team; ' 25, ' 26 ' 27, Capt. First Cricket Team; ' 26, Senior Cross -Country; ' 27, Wright Cup for Tennis; ' 26, Badminton Champion; ' 26 - ' 27, Head Prefect of Powell ' s House. With further reference to our 1965 tribute to Lady Baillie, we pointed out then that from 1918 to the present day, Appleby has never been without members of her clan: sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons. We are confident that in future years we shaU be privileged to be responsible for the education and upbringing of Aubrey ' s grand-children and great-grandchildren. In conclusion, Aubrey, please accept sincere thanks from Appleby boys, past and present; and from your fellow members of the Board of Governors. H.C.H.

The Headmaster ' s Message As I come to grips with a message for this year I have decided to struggle with a few searching questions. What are we trying to do? What is the special " reason for our being " ? Why Appleby College? There are the usual reasons: Appleby is here to build character, to prepare for College, to develop leaders, to inculcate a Christian base for living - reasons which appear in every School Prospectus and which are easily out- lined by hosts of speakers. These reasons are certainly valid, but let us look deeper. Surely we are here primarily to maintain a family, a family in which the basic needs of a curious human being called BOY can be met. Every boy, as in fact every human being, is so made that he has certain primary needs which must be satisfied. Among them is the need to feel that he belongs, - that he is accepted by others. He must know that he is valued, - valued by a community and valued in that community ' s scheme of things. Such knowledge is essential for self-respect and for self-develop- ment. At school a boy must do pretty well what every other boy does. That is life, and particularly boy life. On the other hand, a boy must also do that which he alone can do. Thus, it is important that a school ' s programme is so organized so as to include a suf- ficient variety of activities that each individual boy can find success, in a way peculiar to himself and to his abilities. Indeed while each boy needs recognition, certainly it goes deeper than this. It is the REAL per- son that must be recognized and ac- cepted; and it is a primary job of the school to know and to nourish the unique individuality that is each boy, and to help him to feel that he is ac- cepted and valued. Pursuing this philosophy I am really saying that a boy has to feel that he is wanted for himself and that, as such, he is truly cared about--even if sometimes (like the rest of us!) he may be disagreeable and unpleasant. At the same time, this genuine con- cern, which I am calling for, must not be equated with softness. There are times when a boy learns only as he fails, and it is not an example of showing concern if one spares and protects. As teachers, while we must care intensely for our boys, we must also be demanding --and the two can go together. While there must be rigorous challenges and constructive criticisms in all areas, there must also be unending patience and concern. This is no easy task, but it is what we are here for. In conclusion, therefore, I am calling for a genuine rededication to the aims for which 1 believe Appleby was originally founded --and which over the years, to a greater or a lesser degree, have made Appleby unique. I refer not to a concern for statistics as they may be compared with those of other Schools; I refer not to the de- velopment of a self-satisfied inward looking community; I refer not to the perpetration of any social class; I refer to the development of a family, in which each boy is accepted warm- heartedly, is respected for himself and cared about as an individual, and has the opportunity to develop on a secure base to his fullest capacity.

Bert Halsey It is the College ' s misfortune at the end of this school year to have one of its most loyal and diligent " old boys " retire from active service. When school begins again in September, 1973, Bert Halsey will have joined a select group of selfless, faithful people who have spent the better part of their lives in building Appleby ' s fine tradition. There are many schools in Canada, some large, some small, some old, some new, but it is not an idle boast to say that very, very few of them are as attractively situated as Appleby College. It is true that the topog- raphy of its campus in large measure accounts for this fact, but no other person in the history of the school has been more responsible for seeing to it that our grounds were perennially beautiful than Bert Halsey. Bert came to the school midway through the winter term of 1935 to be the superintendant and general facto- tum in charge of the up-keep of the grounds. Now, over 38 years later, he looks back with a twinkle in his eye at the amusing, annoying, and rewarding e.xperiences he shared with hundreds of boys. Many of you who read these lines will smile I am sure as I remind you of those days. How many of you remember chasing after Bert as he sat on his lawnmower or threw snowballs at him as he ploughed out the rinks and roads? Or how many of us rocked the school truck, hurled verbal barbs, or smoked on the way back from hockey practices at the Oakville Arena? How many ever stopped to thank him for the one hundred thousand little things this man has done for all of us who have been a part of Appleby these many years? It is with pleasure that I ful- fill this duty on your behalf. Lest some of us be too complacent about our lovely campus, let me re- late to you just a few of the things which Bert has done here. When he came, only the lower fields were functional as playing surfaces leading down to them was never cut; he en- larged the bridges across the creek; he created almost single-handedly the large upper field east of the Gymnasium; he would work hoiu: upon hour cutting lawns, flooding rinks, mending this, fi.xing that; he was mailman, garbageman, engineer, electrician, plumber, mechanic, bus driver, gardener, builder, watchman. You name it, Bert did it! Anyone who has known Bert for any length of time soon becomes aware of three very evident features of his per- sonality. The first is his penchant for answering every request with " Nope " . Only those who are persist- ent enough to penetrate this veneer of gruffness find that beneath lies a warm warm and helpful soul. The second is his fantastic memory. Bert rarely forgets a fact, and when you stop him during his busy day and ask him for something, sure enough, he gets it for you. Finally, and probably his most endearing quality of all in the eyes of the boys, is the fact that Bert never " snitched " on any of them. Mr. and Mrs. Halsey will continue to call Appleby their home and will live in the same brown cottage that they have occupied for many years. 1 Bert will be available to act as a consultant on the many facets of Appleby ' s daily routine of which he has an invaluable and ine.Nhaustible store of knowledge. Thus on behalf of the hundreds of Appleby boys who have been associated with this won- derful man, I extend to him and to Marion our sincerest hope that they will enjoy many more but softer years at Appleby College.

Martin Kenney Our first glimpse of Mart was in September, 1946. Eldest son of the celebrated Mart Kenney, whose ' Western Gentlemen ' led the polls of ' name ' bands, we expected some show of talent. Apart from his application to studies and his intense interest in games he played the piano, sang with the senior choir, and had the distinct- ion of being the only trumpeter, so far, to play the obligate to Handel ' s " The Trumpet Shall Sound " when the choir sang this number from " The Messiah " , in the School Chapel. In his final year, 1952, Mart was Head Prefect, Captain of First Hockey and a Lieutenant in the College Cadet Corps. Of a roving disposition. Mart spent one year at Queen ' s University; went into the investment business, then proceeded to join the R. C. A. F. and became a jet fighter pilot stationed on the Prairies. Later he moved to Comox, British Columbia and, as one might expect, succumbed to the distinct charms of the West and married Miss Merrilynne Tunbridge of Mission City. He left the Force with the rank of Flight -Lieutenant. In September of 1962, Mart was back on campus to teach in the Junior school. During this period he pursued his education at Toronto and Buffalo and earned his M.Ed. Later, he got his Ontario Teacher ' s Certificate at Queen ' s. A very loyal son of Appleby, he has given generously of his talents in many ways. Apart from coaching First Teams, he became the Housemaster of Colley House in 1964, took over the Band in 1966 and. in 1969 took com- mand of the entire Cadet Corps. For all these things we are grateful to an Old Boy who retained such abiding faith in our place in the sun. In July, he takes up the post of Head- master of Balmoral Hall School in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and we wish him, Lynn and their three young sons aU the happiness they so richly deserve. We shall miss them ! Thomas T. Menzies Mr. Menzies ' first acquaintance with Appleby was a brief one and probably gave no indication of the great con- tribution that he was to make to the life of the College in the future. Leaving England in January 1950, the young Cambridge graduate made his way to Toronto with, in his words, " no money, no job, and no wife. " He quickly remedied the first two de- ficiencies by arranging a temporary position at Appleby. He taught " anything and everything " here from March to June. He then accepted a post at Ridley College ' s Lower School for September 1950. The following summer he returned to England to claim his lovely bride. Mavis, with whom he returned to Ridley, and continued teaching there until he re- joined the Appleby staff in September of 1954. Mr. Menzies first taught History and W-r- . ByK " . Sjmg A ' M tHk " " " H Hi r 1 Geography, but as the School grew, his position evolved to Head of History. He enjoys the distinction of having been the Housemaster of all three of the Senior houses: Powell ' s House first, then Colley House, and finally Walker House. He has coached the First Cricket XI for nineteen years. In his last five years at the school, he was the Senior Housemaster and Dean of Residence. We should also like to mention the School ' s gratitude to Mrs. Menzies for the work that she has done for the Dramatic Society as Wardrobe Mistress for the past ten years. Her ingenuity, and competent administration of the wardrobes will be sadly missed. Next year, Mr. Menzies wiU assiune the duties of Headmaster of King ' s College School in Windsor, Nova Scotia. His departure will be a sad event for the School; we who have come to know and to respect him as both a schoolmaster and a friend will find the School a different place indeed without him. At the same time, all of us join in extending to Mr. and Mrs. Menzies, our very best wishes for continued happiness, health, and success in their new home. School Appointments Head Prefect R. K.

For it is only in this way that the School ' s closeness and Spirit will be maintained. Many of the problems in societ y stem from a lack of communication between classes, races or generations. Thus, it is imperative that we learn to communicate effectively and to acquire the basic skills. Learn to write accurately and concisely. Articulate your thoughts when you speak, and remember, if you are a good listener, you will be a better speaker. The attitudes and growth of Appleby will be healthy if we try to develop a rapport with each other, and this pertains especially to those in authority. Appleby cannot afford to lose the intimacy which has been a part of this school for decades, and something which has led to so many other good things. If you are a leader: set a good example; uphold the system; and listen so that you may be better equipped to communi- cate with your changes. If you serve the system: improve yourself by becoming involved, and listen to those in authority and your contemporaries. My best wishes to you all. 1973 Graduates Grade 13 MARTIN CAIRD ' Mike ' is a quiet but friendly person, easy to get along with, and well-liked. He has played for the school in tennis and squash many times over the years, and he has also been a stalwart member of the Harriers. Since arriving at Appleby three years ago he has been involved with many clubs, among them Woodwork- ing, Badminton, Geography, and the Political Party, and he has also partici- pated in the Operetta. DAVID CANNON ' Involved ' is the best word to sum up Dave ' s six years at Appleby. He is a very good student (a Foundation Scholar) and has always maintained a high average in his school work. He has earned his Gold Optimates and this year won the dis- tinction of being one of the few Ontario students who wrote a perfect Mathe- matics paper in the S. A. C.U. examinations. Athletically, ' Stats ' has thrown most of his energy into Harriers, a cross-country running team which he helped to found. The Debating Society is much indebted to him for his support, as are several other activities, most notably the Operetta. m " n GORDON CASPERD The ' basketball star ' of the College, Gord, in his seven years here, has con- tributed much. This year he was Head Prefect of Walker House, President of the Students ' Activities Committee, Captain of the First Basketball Team and Vice- Captain of the First Cricket Team. He has earned his colours in Football, Bas- ketball and Cricket and was a member of the All-Star Cricket Team. Every Sports Day Gord ' s name has been recorded either as a winner of an event or as a runner-up. Besides these athletic achievements he has maintained a good average in his school work and was appointed a Lieutenant in the Cadet Corps. ANDREW COLVILLE Everybody knows " Andy. " During his eleven years at Appleby he has pretty well taken part in every activity at one time or another. This year he played for the First Football Team and in 1971 for the First Basketball Team. In the Spring he concentrated his energy on his position on the Open Rugger Team. For three years Andy has been the House Manager for the Operettas and last year played an acting role in the school production of " Julius Caesar. " All of the sets required for theatrical productions have been constructed with his assistance. Over the past four years Andy has been an N. C. O. in the Cadet Corps and this year was a Major. WILLIAM DIETRICH Bill is an all-round person, friendly, responsible and busily involved. For the past four years he has been a lead in the Operetta, throughout his five years a valuable member of the choir, and, when time permitted, an excellent debator and public speaker (he won the Public Speaking Contest this year. ) He is an Old Boys ' Foundation Scholar and has always maintained a very high average (Bill has his Gold Optimates.) In the athletic field, he has been a member of the First Football Team for one year and the First Basketball Team for two years. This year he was a prefect in Walker House and a Captain in the Cadet Corps. ANDRE DZIERLA " D. Z. " or " Diz " always has two things to express at any given moment: an opinion and an off-colour joke. He is a friendly fellow, well -liked by his classmates. Throughout the year he has provided supervision in the Library, Cadet stores and Weight -training room. He has been a member of the First Football Team for two years and when not engaged in some activity on the school grounds he was a frequent patronizer of " the Dew. " CHARLES HAVILL Who isn ' t " Chuck ' s " friend? He has, during his five years at the school, provided a great source of humour, a little " twinkle " when it was needed. Several leading roles in the Operettas and plays performed over the past few years have been refreshingly and amusingly portrayed by him. His voice is excellent and apart from his singing on stage, he has always been a member of the Choir. This year Chuck played for the First Football and First Basketball teams (he was co-captain of the 2nd. basketball team.) He was also a Lieutenant m the Cadet Corps and Prefect in Powell ' s House. JOHN HEVESI John is the man with the cars, whether his now defunct Trans-Am or his current Porsche 914S. When he wasn ' t driving one of these machines he was active at the school. For the past four years he has helped plan and decorate the school dances. He has also been a member of the Argus staff and, among several others, of the Squash and Judo Clubs. He played for the First Football Team this year, was a Lieutenant in the Cadet Corps and in his school work earned an average in the 70 ' s. DENNIS HUBLIT " Herb " or " Mole " (he has a habit of sleeping during classes) has never been a very vocal person yet he is a real character, well thought of by all. He was a Prefect in Walker House this year and Sergeant -Major of the Cadet Corps. For two years he has played for the First Football Team and earned his Colours for that sport. In the winter term he was the Captain of the Second Hockey Team. Herb has been active in all sorts of societies including the Dance Committee and Stage Crew. DOUGLAS JENNINGS Hard-working, enthusiastic, athletic, well-organized - all of these adjectives describe Doug. He was a leader of the school this year as a Prefect in CoUey House, the Head Chapel Warden, Stage Manager for the Operetta (a position which he has held for three years). Commander of Company B in the Cadet Corps, Vice-Captain of the First Football Team and Captain of the Open Rugger Team. A member of the First Hockey and First Squash Teams, for these sports and two others his name has been listed on the Record Board for the past few years. For Football, Rugger and Hockey, he earned his Colours. His greatest contribution to the school, however, has been his unwavering enthusiasm in every- thing he undertook. RICHARD MACFARLANE dAt Rich has been at Appleby for eleven years and during that time participated in all aspects of school life. This year he was a Prefect for the Grade Nine Day Boys. For the past two years he has played for the First Cricket Team and his name has been recorded on the Record Board. He has always worked hard in his school work and therefore has been on the Unsupervised Study list since 1970. In 1972 Rich won the Best Cadet award and was made a Sergeant this year. The Operetta, Debating Society and Choir have all benefited from his support. ROBERT MACFARLANE Rob has won and done all that Appleby has to offer during his eleven years at the school. This year he was Head Boy and Commanding Officer of the Cadet Corps. For two years he was Editor of the Argus. " Pickle " was a member of all the First Teams, Football, Hockey, and Cricket and has earned his colours in two of these sports. In Grade 10 he won the Williams Prize and in Grade 12, the Lieutenant Governor ' s Silver Medal. His average has always been above SO o and for this he has his Gold Optimates. Likewise, each year he has won several academic prizes and is a Foundation Scholar. Rob ' s extracurricular activities include the Operetta (he has been a lead both in this and in other various plays). Choir, Debating and Public Speaking. In everything he does he shows great determination and organization. ANDREW MANN Andy is very respected and highly regarded by all who know him. He is an organized, steady worker and for this has been on the Unsupervised Study List for three years. His real forte is athletics, however. He has been on First Team Football, Basketball and Cricket for the past two years and this year was Captain of the football and cricket teams. He has been awarded his colours for those two sports. A couple of years ago he was runner-up in the Intermediate Sports Day and last year won the ' Victor Ludorum. ' Besides being a Prefect in Powell ' s House and a Major in the Cadet Corps, Andy has participated in several activities, most notably the Dance Committee and Stage Crew. ELGIN MCMURCHY Another of the McMurchy clan, Elgin has in only three years, contributed much to the school. His average has always been over 75% and for two years he has had his Optimates. Elgin was a Prefect in Colley House and Captain of the Cadet Corps this year. He established the Fencing Club which is now flourishing and looking confidently towards the future. As a PubUc Speaker and member of the Judo and Art Clubs, Elgin has shown great imagination and enthusiasm. TIMOTHY MENZIES Tim is a lively, cheerful chap. He has earned a reputation as a great speaker, singer and actor. For four years Tim has been in the Operetta and over the past two amazed all by his theatrical and muscial abilities in his execution of two leading roles- The gymnastics Club, Art Society and Choir have aU been en- riched by his support. Tim was a member of the Squash Team this year and, as he has been since it started four years ago, a ' regular ' of the Harriers. Since 1970 he has been on the Unsupervised Study list and this year earned his Optimates. He has also been a Prefect in Walker House and Lieutenant-Commander of the Cadet Band. DANIEL PEAT " I couldn ' t find the stairway, sir, " was the explanation Dan gave for being late for class on his second day at Appleby. This unwitting ability to humour his acquaintances has remained with Dan. An Old Boys Foundation Scholar he has maintained an average of over 80%. The usual accolades of academic achieve- ment (Optimates, prizes, etc.) have all been Dan ' s. For three years he has been in the Operetta, and the Choir for two. This year he was Head Prefect of Powell ' s House, Treasurer of the Students Activities Committee, Grade 13 representative on the Dance Committee and a Lieutenant in the Cadet Corps. DANIEL SINGER An ardent scuba -diver, Dan has had little time to practice this, his first love, during his nine years at Appleby. He has, however, been busy with other activities. He played for the First Football Team this year, and has always been involved with gymnastics. In 1972 he was a Sergeant in the Cadet Corps and this year Captain of " A " Company. He has also been a member of the After-Four Programme, the Art Club, and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, in which he earned his Bronze Medallion. MICHAEL ZELLER ' Zeke ' is one of the ' characters ' of the Grade 13 class. During his three years at Appleby he has taken part in two Operettas and debated for the school for the Fulford Cup. Both the Art Society and Chess Club have felt his support. He was a Lieutenant in the Colour Party and an Assistant Librarian in the new library. Form Pictures 12E FRONT ROW: Crosbie I.

Autumn Sports The First Football Team Lord Elgin Lost 26:6 HiUfield Won 24:7 UCC Lost 8:0 Ridley Lost 22:7 TCS Lost 28:7 Lakefield Won 7:4 SAC Lost 37:7 Old Boys Lost 19:6 At the end of the 1971 season the prospects for this year looked very dismal as only sl players planned to return this Fall. However, our spirits were lifted in September, particularly at the appearance of ' Football ' Robertson and an experi- enced running back, Swire, both fresh from football camps. Three weeks of hard practice ensued our arrival and all too soon we played our first game. The opponents. Lord Elgin High School, proved to be re- doubtable adversaries. Although the 26 to 6 score indicated a thorough thrashing, the game was close. At the end of the first quarter we were without the services of four of our stalwart team members, two of whom, Swire and Macfarlane 11, were not able to return for the rest of the season. Our only scoring play came on a fumble recovery by Colville, forced by the defensive line. On the first Saturday of our seven game regular season we faced Hill- field. It proved to be our only game in sunny weather. Our pride, a bit stung from our previous encounter, we put forth a much more productive display. Campbell, McKenzie, and Dickens all excelled particularly in this game. Our ne.xt game, at UCC marked the beginning of the ' Mud Bowls ' . In a fierce defensive battle we held the Blue and White to a mere eight points. Mullen and Gross, playing their best football, led the defense. FRONT ROW: Dickens, Collins, Jennings 1, Mann, Robertson, Mullen, Hublit. SECOND ROW: Burns, Jennings II, Hevesi, Green, McLeod, Vickers, McKenzie, Campbell. THIRD ROW: Dzierla, Straight, Lytle, Havill, Casperd, Kaunas, Rosseel, Singer. FOURTH ROW: Suchanek, Colville, McMurchy, Merritt, Dietrich, Droge, Macfarlane II. BACK ROW: Mr. Larsen, Barber, Naish, Swire, Gross, Gray, Wilson, Mr. Abbott, Mr. Smith. On October 14 we faced Ridley at home. We scored first when Sucha- nek tackled a Ridley man in the end zone. That was the only time we led, however, as the Elidley offence was too powerful. A pass from Dickens to Jennings scored our sole touchdown. We travelled to TCS, our bitter rivals, for our fifth game of the season. At the half, the seven to two score looked very promising. All hope was soon shattered, however, as TCS amounted points in rapid succession. Although the score was indicative of a hearty defeat, we felt, that with some breaks, we might have reversed it. The following Saturday we were at Lakefield to face the Grove. Again in a tough defensive confrontation, the score was kept low. A sweep by Robertson around the right end provided us with our one and only touchdown, but this was enough to enable our victory. In our final game of the regular sea- son we played SAC at home. During our first series of plays we moved the ball well, while Campbell and Mann worked the ends. We could not pene- trate the twenty yard line however. Robertson scored a touchdown though, on a power sweep. Our last game of the season was against the Old Boys. Scoring but once on a 65 yard pass and run play , from Robertson to Jennings, the Old Boys had the game for the fifth con- secutive year. All factors considered, it was a better season than the scores might indicate. Despite many injuries, poor weather, and a very inexperi- enced squad, we showed a keen interest and good spirit for the game. Much credit is due to the untiring efforts of our coaches. Messrs Smith and Abbott, and to our team mana- ger, Naish. Contrary to the situation at the end of the 1971 season, twenty- two of our players plan to return ne-xt year. Perhaps then the score- board will be changed in our favour. The Under 16 Football Team FRONT ROW: Grady, Scott, Johnston, Peart I, Cantle, Sims, Taylor I, Lyall, Timmins. CENTRE ROW: MacFarlane II, Milner, Carswell, MacWUliams, McMurchy II, Henkel, Gall I, Labrie, Fleming, Rachmaninoff I, Cameron, Mr. Kenney. BACK ROW: Katz, Norman, McAlister, Cutler, Maslon, Browne, Hodge. Our first game, against TCS, exem- plified the style of play for the dura- tion of our season. Twice we fumbled the ball from nervousness and the score at the end of the first half (0-13) reflected this. In the latter half of the game, however, touch- downs by Peart, Taylor, and Henkel turned the score in our favour. We lost three of our seven games. UCC proved a powerful adversary and, in rainy weather, we went down to a bad defeat. Our other two losing games were much closer, our opponents being Ridley and Lakefield. Although we lost to Ridley once, in our other game against them we won 12-7, despite our unfavourable (0-7) showing in the first half. An 80 yard pass by Cantle to Brown pro- duced the winning touchdown. Victory was again ours in a game with TCS. Katz, McAlister, and Taylor each scored a touchdown, and good runs by Cantle and Taylor kept our strong drive going. Our final game against SAC was our best and most rewarding contest. Tremendous runs by Burn, Taylor, and and Cantle, and a concerted effort by our defense, were crushing to SAC. Burn himself got three touchdowns and Taylor one. Fleming showed himself to be a " power-runner " , fol- lowing the example of these other players, but unfortunately SAC had the middle well contained. Credit is due to the defence as they were very awesome in containing the opposition. Simrns and Timmins delivered crushing tackles and Katz surprised many an adversary with his swiftness. The spirit of the team was very high. Crosbie was our real forte in this as- pect of competition. Gratitude from the defence goes to " Pickle " Macfarlane for his help, and from the entire team to Mr. Kenney, our " patient " coach.

THIRD ROW: Boyd I, Wright, Kunst, Crosbie III, Kancff, Kcatcs, Black, Machan. There comes a time, once in so many years, when everything seems to gell, and this was that year. We were fortunate that a nuc leus of good athletes with a desire to learn gather- ed on a muggy September afternoon to play the game of football. The offensive squad quickly learned a wide variety of plays, and the de- fensive players gradually adapted to their positions as well. We were also fortunate in that very few changes were necessitated this season by in- jury or illness. Both Doug Pritchard and David Stuart, our ends, had excellent ' hands ' and were capable blockers, especially in cutting off the interior pursuit on our end runs. Tony ' Tiny ' Braddock and Peter Bloemen, though inexperienced at tackle, learned quickly and could be counted on to open up an off- tackle hole that often gained us five or more yards. Our guards, Greg Doherty and Danny Kaneff , on many occasions were able to lead our half- backs around the corner to score. Paul Crosbie, the centre, improved with every game and became a creditable blocker. In the backfield, our flankers were Graham Johnson and NeLL Jamieson, who was also our punter and place kicker. Both of these players v ere especially effective at blocking out the defensive ends or linebackers, and they caught a number of impor- tant passes. The halfbacks, Mike Rosseel and John Slattery (the cap- tain), complemented one another quite well, John being a strong, fast, hard-hitting runner, and Mike a tricky, shifty player who refused to be taken down. Our quarterback, Jim Wetmore, showed poise in hand- ling the ball and throwing, and his leadership was a vital factor in our success. It appeared at the onset that the de- fence would be our great weakness, but after a slow start this unit toughened up considerably. On a number of occasions the defence kept us in the game when the offense sputtered, and much credit should be given to our defensive line who won the battle of the ' trenches ' . • Of . The defensive captain. Tom (Little Buzz) Green, who had the responsi- bility of calling the defensive signals, demonstrated excellent anticipation and pursuit, and was a fearsome tackier for his size. Our ends, John Wright and Ian Slade, did an admir- able job of containing end sweeps. John Black and Bernie Kunst develop- ed into very valuable guards, and their aggressiveness and determina- tion inspired the defence on many occasions. John Keates and David Gibson were our tackles, with Gibson also serving as linebacker. Both were competent tacklers and made important contributions to the team. Jim Slattery, our 102 pound line- backer, had the knack of sneaking into the opponents ' backfield to either tackle the ball-carrier or ' ride ' him until help arrived. Our halfbacks were Gary Machan and Barry (Dinghy) Durrant, both of whom, though not large physically . played very well when called upon.

To all the players on this team, a hearty thank you and well done from your coaches for an extremely en- joyable and successful season. Senior School Soccer The senior school soccer group was, as always, a large, fun -loving ' crew ' of non-football players. Only two matches were played this year, both against Ridley, and both, un- fortunately, were lost, by one goal apiece. Such players as Choy, Christensen, and Tate indicate that these scores could be easUy reversed in the future. The enthusiasm for the game and the natural ability of several of the players deserve due consideration for a more competitive season next year. Thanks for the past season must go to the indefati- gable Mr. Menzies, and part time coach, Mr. Revill. Harriers Unfortunately the enthusiasm and organization of former years was not apparent in the small group that made up the Harriers this autumn. As there was no coach for the team, and indeed only one meet against another school (that being the experienced Ridley team), the Harriers settled into a mediocre, circuitous routine of jogging about the school grounds. Four of the Harriers came in the top ten of the cross-country race however, and if a coach is found for next year, hope still remains for a competitively good team of runners. Despite its unexpected appearance, the Under 15 Rugger team could be said to have had a season of both emotional and statistical victory. With Mr. Washington stepping for- ward to take care of the coaching, good work from our scrum-half. U.I 5 Rugger Freeman, and our fly -half, Roloff, and the effort of the entire team, we won one of our three games by a good bit, lost another by a small margin, and lost again by a larger amount. The team would like to thank Mr. Washington for teaching them the fundamentals of the game. Hopefully, with the experience of this year behind them, they will be able to record an improved perform- ance next season. k- Cross- Country Race WINNERS SENIOR FL- CE: B. Reid, J. McKenzie, J.

In the beginning, the defence looked very weak, but with everyone doing a little more than was expected of him, the team got off to a good start, winning the first three games 4-2. Then Ridley managed to hold us to a draw, and we lost 2-1 at Hillfield. However, the rest of the schools were no match for our boys, who finished with 6 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss record. In goal, Bloemen stopped many difficult shots but had a tendency to be casual with easy ones. Peart and Stone at full-back tackled strongly, and gradually improved their positional play. When Gray played he kicked the ball hard - usually in the right direction. The work -horses of a soccer team are the half-backs, and FRONT ROW: Keil Peart II, Moffat, Farrington I, Stone, Gallagher. BACK ROW: McLaughlin, Gray II, Farrington II, Thomson III, Withey, Bloemen II. Jennings, Thomson and Moffat ran miles during the season, making up by hard work and determination what they lacked in finesse. Withey and Bruce Farrington were very powerful wingers and with them on the team we were always likely to break away and score. The generals of a soccer team are the inside forwards and we were lucky to have three - Kiel, McLaughlin and Gallagher - who distributed the ball intelligently and worked hard too. Our captain and leading goal scorer, John Farrington, at centre forward led the team very well and was always working. Altogether we had a very successful and enjoyable season. Jr. School 2nd Soccer What the team lacked in skill was amply made up by its eagerness. Out of 22 regulars, 16 boys represent- ed the school at one time or another. It was sometimes most difficult to decide whom to choose. Many individuals improved and " grew up " during the season. It would be difficult and unfair to single out any individual but it is felt tliat Charles Stacey and David " zuk " Suchanek who did such a good job as fullbacks should be mentioned. David was badly missed in our Lake- field game in which we suffered a terrible defeat. Our other loss was against Hillfield when we had to fill-in for the First Team. Also meriting special mention is our leading scorer, Desmond Burke and the most improved player award goes to Malcolm " Ming " Menzies. It was fun coaching this group; it is full of characters, some of whom FRONT ROW: Pegg, Bramall, Hebert, Gaskin, Jackson II, Menzies II. BACK ROW: Stacey, Burke, Newlands, Suchanek II, Harnden, Manbert, Jackson I. will have to learn to be self-discip- lined, accept criticism, and be part of a team. Jr. School 3rd Soccer This season we were fortunate in having a number of good soccer players amongst the new boys, and several of them ended up in the 3rd Team. Thanks to good team play, team spirit, and to individual skills, the season was highly successful. Outstanding players were Jamie Russell, at centre-forward, and Colin Richards, at inside right, who scored 12 and 11 goals respectively. Inside left, Mark Wilson, scored 6 goals and both wingers, Nigel Day and Scott Brackenridge, got 3 each. Jamie Washington played several matches in different forward positions. We had a very sound halfback line with Steve McBride and Ricky Schlesinger showing great determin- ation. Chris Suchanek at centre- half had good ball -control and a long kick to get things moving. Fullbacks Peter Whitney and John Van Tighem defenced steadily and goal keeper Tony Stafford was able to record four " shut-outs " . Our only loss was a hard -fought tussle with Crescent; bad weather prevented the return match being played. FRONT ROW: Wilson II, Richards, Day, Schlesinger, Washington, Brackenridge. BACK ROW: Stafford, Van Tighem, Suchanek III, Whitney, Russell, McBride. Jr. School 4th Soccer The fourth soccer team had a very successful season, recording three wins against Ridley, two wins against Hillfield, and a draw against Cres- cent. The team ' s only loss was to Upper Canada in a close 1-0 game. The standard of play was excellent and particular credit must be given to Fred Reid, who captained the team and helped the forwards develop into a coherent attacking unit. The halfbacks were ably led by Stephen Durst whose consistent effort often helped settle the team and encourag- ed the entire group to play hard for the full game. It is encouraging to note that a large number of Grade 6 boys were on the team and that soccer ' s popularity at this level has increased to the extent that nearly every boy has played the game before entering Appleby. FRONT ROW: Durst, Cole, Reid II, Piatt II, Burke II, Smith. BACK ROW: McQuiggan, Brooks, Hueton, Burchmore 1, Hayne, Farmer, Hardie. Jr. School Cross-Country The cross-country season has been very active, for all the boys in the school have been running once a week, and a few very keen ones have trained hard for the two meets we have had. One aid to training was the Centi- pedes Club. Anyone could qualify for membership to the club by run- ning 100 miles. Hugh Jackson and Bruce Boyd had a tremendous tussle to be the first to qualify; they were to be seen running round the College grounds at dawn and dusk, in rain and sun. In the end, they each reached the target within twenty -four hours of each other. A magnificent effort! The teams had a good season. We entered a team of six into the Brock University Invitational for high FRONT ROW: Van Caster II, Ritson, Washington, McBride, Burke II, Ross II. BACK ROW: Menzies II, Hogarth II, Boyd II, Jackson II, Thompson IV, Gallagher. schools. Running in the lowest divi- sion (under 15) our thirteen year olds came eleventh out of twenty eight. Later in the season we hosted the first Independent Junior Schools meet, and won over Hillfield and Crescent. i i. m Activities «L J Hr ' l ,00 mJmat i A-). Debating If Appleby College is to compete successfully in future inter-school debates, a different approach to de- bating is required. This fact became abundantly clear during the course of this season which saw too few students participating either as debaters or spectators. What is needed at .Appleby? More inspirational leadership from advisors? Probably. But, as well, maybe we would be advised to follow the leader and adopt an approach used by the Trinity College Debating Society. Operating on the principle that stu- dents will do anything to get out of study, they hold their intraschool debates during study every Wednesday evening for juniors and Friday evening for Seniors. By itself, this may not be the solution for the situation at Appleby; however, it does merit con- sideration and possibly even a " let ' s- try-it-and-see-what-happens " test. As we alluded to above, while this year ' s performance was by no means brilliant, we did have some successes. We received strong individual per- formances from Bill Crosbie and Dave Cannon, enthusiastic support from Richard MacFarlane, Doug McLeod, Chris Robertson and Doug Jennings, and able participation by Robert MacFarlane, Ian Cameron, Dan Peat, Bruce Tate, Mike Jennings, and Mike Zeller. Morrow, Kishino, Polakowski and Dickens were active junior debaters. Look for better things to come. Grade 12 Society This year this new society was formed in order to expose this class to a non- academic view of the world. It met once a month and was most fortunate in having top speakers in various fields of endeavor to address it. The first meeting was most topical as it gave an opportunity to the 3 Federal candidates for election the chance to size one another up before the start of their formal campaign. It also gave an opportunity to the " First time " voters to see such an encounter. The first scheduled speaker was Doctor John Piatt M. D. , Medical Director of St. Michael ' s Hospital in Toronto, who gave us an insight into medicine. He generated sufficient interest to have 8 boys wanting to spend a day visiting a hospital, which they did. Winsor Peppall, an Old Boy, was next; being a Vice-President and Manager of Research for Wood Gundy, he spoke about his experiences as a research analyst for an investment House. Our third speaker, Robert McDonald, also an Old Boy, spoke about the law. Mr. Carruthers of the Society of Pro- fessional Engineers showed a movie and was able to give an insight into the wide field of Engineering. Mr. Peter Strucken Assistant Manager of the Export Division of the Steel Company of Canada spoke about working for a large corporation and international trade. Finally in May, to end the series of talks, Mr. Bruce McLaughlin, President of S. B. McLaughlin and Associates, spoke on a wide variety of topics, in- cluding development and his ideas on population growth as set out in his forth-coming book " One hundred Million Canadians. " We are most grateful to all these speakers for having given so generously of their time to speak and share their experiences with us. Weight Training Room A room containing various pieces of equipment for the physical develop- ment of students at Appleby was among the new facilities operative this year. A lat machine, exercise bicycle, as- sorted benches designed for weight- lifting and exercise, and other smaller devices are now available for boys who require training. The purposes of the room are many: to enable athletes to develop particular muscles in their body; to aid disabled boys (with crutches or casts) to exercise their muscles; to reduce or increase the weight of boys whose physical condition requires such, etc. There are current- ly about fifty boys on individual exer- cise programs: they use the room three or four times a week for a period of twelve weeks gradually increasing the repetition of their exercises as their program indicates. Many other students Si A. follow the standard charts posted in the room which list the required exercises for different weight categories. Mr. Abbot manages the room and composes the individual programs. He is helped by his supervisors: Collins, Vickers, Dzierla, Swire, Robertson, Rachmaninoff I, Peart and Hublit. Fencing For the first time at Appleby a society to teach the art of fencing has been established. Many wanted to join the club but unfortunately only a few were allowed to do so. This was due to the fact that the Fencing Society wanted to lay the foundations for the years to come by training a select group of students. In future, now that several boys have a basic knowledge of fencing, more will be able to parti- cipate in the club. Through the support of the College and the Cadet Corps the equipment necessary for fencing was acquired , In time, it is hoped, further equip- ment will be given to the society, including a type of sword different from the standard one now in use. By organized instruction and steady progression the Fencing Society has made excellent beginnings in one year - one year of many more to come. F " W f B i . i f_ . - Chess Despite the counter attractions of the many other school activities a group of enthusiasts met regularly to castle, check, adouber, take en passant, and eventually to checkmate. Around the top of the chess ladder Cannon 1, Katz, Henkel, Dickens II and Keefe struggled for supremacy. An inter- house competition wUl be completed in the spring term with Powell ' s house out in front after the first round, and an individual championship is planned on a knockout basis. WhUe chess does not appeal to everyone, many boys have had a great deal of pleasure from this activity. The Judo Club The Judo Club had become a regular feature of the Appleby program and this year it expanded by moving to Hatashita Judo Club in Oakville. Many novices joined the society this year and after some practice it was evident they had great potential. Un- fortunately time did not permit these people to gain much experience, but in competition their natural ability outweighed this setback. Indeed, at several regional tournaments, Chris Robertson won the Senior Champion- ship while Leslie Connor placed second in the Junior division. In view of their development over the past year, several promotions were made: Doug McLeod and Leslie Connor earned their Yellow Belts and Chris Robertson his Orange Belt. The prospects for next year look very promising and Appleby can hope to have one of the strongest Judo Clubs in the province. Dances The Dance Committee was formed to organize the four dances held by the school over the year. Three repre- sentatives from each of the senior classes Kerry Cantle, Ken Mullen and Dan Peat worked in conjunction with Mr. Kenney, Mr. Smith and Mr. Manbert on this Committee. The first dance of the year was a " record hop " held in October and M. C ' ed by Joe Vickers and " Verge " Barber, The gym was decorated to resemble a card house. The styro- foam slaps, purchased last year, were admirably suited for their role as cards after appropriate designs had been printed on each. They were hung to serve as walls and a low ceil- ing. Girls from St. MUdred ' s and Alma College were invited to the dance and , as the school was invited to a dance at the latter in January, it is believed they enjoyed them- selves. In preparation for the Christmas Party the Committee held many meetings. Parents and staff were invited to at- tend the affair, which was held in the Dining Hall. In keeping with the spirit of the season, the chandeliers were laden with garlands and a focal point was created by erecting an ex- travagantly decorated, sixteen foot Christmas tree. The music, provided by a nine piece band, " The Music Machine " , attempted to satisfy the desires of both generations. All who managed to attend (despite the snow- storm) were pleasantly surprised by both it and the arrangements for the evening (we hope). On March 3 Appleby was host to a dance for Bishop ' s College School which was staying at the school for a hockey and squash weekend. St. Mildred ' s not only filled the need for dancing partners but one of its girls thought of a theme for the dance: Music! The ubiquitous styrofoam cards were again produced and painted with notes and clefs of various descriptions. A mobile was suspended through the centre of the red and white streamer ceiling, which stretched to the rafters of the gym. The music, which met with great ap- proval, was provided by " deadwood Brigg " , the same group engaged for the First Football Team Dance. The Cadet Ball, held on the night of the Cadet Inspection was the final ef- fort of the Committee. The officers wore their uniforms, adding a special atmosphere to the formal affair. Once again dancing was to the strains of " The Music Machine " . Undoubt- edly, the warm, starlit evening helped add to the success of the dance. The committee would like to extend its sincere thanks to Mrs. Ford, Mrs. Pritchard, Bert Halsey, and the masters and their wives who gave much needed assistance. Thanks is also due to the girls of St. Mildred ' s who were always there when the " Dial-a-date " service was calling. It is not possible to list all the boys who worked to arrange the various dances but Andy Mann, the ' engi- neer ' , and Bill Dietrich who made many ' executive decisions ' are cer- tainly worthy of particular note. We hope next year ' s Committee will get the same kind of enthusiastic assist- ance as they gave. The Gondoliers «• ' V Just to jar your memory of the show; can you remember . .

(That everyone who went there was a bit aghast. ) G and S WINS Etc. Sort of catching, the G S stuff. The reason for the back row seat was that I was late and the giant gym was jam packed — with a whole lot more folks than just parents. Apparently the annual Appleby evenings of W.S. and Sir Arthur are an accepted institution in town. This was my first outing. I ' ll admit, but it won ' t be the last. The voices were young, but the words were firm and clear even in the back row. There was a professional panache about the whole thing that made you think they either were real pros or had been working on the thing for ten years. Plaudits for the whole cast, especially to Tim Menzies and William Dietrich who were so good you forgot to wonder whether they were good or not. Susan Aldridge, too, for both her characterization and her part in the choreography. by ri chard moses Gwendy Morris and Chris Robertson, as well as the flute-voiced Jennifer Keay — and all the others, too — deserve special mention. There was one tallish blonde in the chorus of Cantadine — her name is among the fourteen in the group — who is destined for . fine things : hei obvious joy over the whole typical G S mess (plotwise) was contagious. One can only ask, what ' s next for talented Director Michael W. Des Roches. ? : Winter Sports 1st Team Hockey BOTTOM ROW: MacFarlane II, Gross, Mullen, Jenning I, Campbell.

Due to last year ' s mass emigration, this year ' s 1st Hockey Team suffered a severe blow. To replace those who left, we recruited some very young and inexperienced players. Although we always gave everything we had, it seemed as if " Lady Luck " just wouldn ' t look our way. Whenever we managed to keep some pressure on, the opposition would far too frequently come -storming back and pop in a couple before we knew what hit us. Inconsistent play was our major fault, not just from game to game, but from period to period and minute to minute. The highlights of the season, though few and far between, were memo- rable ones. Our game against the Old Boys was nip and tuck the whole way. Our young but zealous team poured their hearts into the game, and we almost came away victorious. An- other high point in the season was the BCS tour. Bishop ' s College School from Lennoxville, P. Q. , came down and stayed at the school. There were two games scheduled for them, the first against the Grove who beat us very soundly in league play. However, BCS lost by only one goal in a 2-1 contest. We were to have our work cut out for us. The team, however, rose to the occasion as they put on a good show before a big crowd. The contest ended in a 1-1 tie. Our goal was scored on the prettiest play of the year. Pin-point passing involving all five players was topped off when our Captain D. K. (Moon) Mullen scored from the slot. There were moments during other games when we played very well, but unfortunately they were just moments. All in all, the season may have shown upon paper as a disaster; but never say die, and remember those " young, inexperienced " players all have a year ' s seasoning and next winter they will all be veterans - so maybe next year. Finally a word must be said about our coach, Mr. Abbott, who, believing in us always, stuck with us through thick and thin. He would always be there when he was needed and not enough can be said to thank him for all he has done.

BACK ROW: Cutler, Brown, Johnson, Labrie, Rosseel I, Machan, Swire, Peart I, Mr. Manbert. Both senior teams have experienced a decided weakness this year with a maximum of thirty two positions. It is really a shame that with such a beautiful arena, so few actually know how to skate properly. This year ' s Second Team did not lack in con- fidence nor effort but unfortunately for many people, the inability to skate negated all the effort put forth. In addition to the above prob- lem, we had boys all the way from Grades 9 to 13, and I feel that this " grade gap " caused an association problem. To be honest we were terribly weak on defence, mostly because of skating inability. A defenceman must be able to carry and pass the puck without looking at it - this we were unable to do and, regularly, guaranteed with every passing game, we neatly gave the opposition not one but many opportunities to score which they did. All six defencemen, John Rosseel, Tim Labrie, Jim Swire, Mike Brown, Gerry Droge, and Gary Machan tried hard, but they made too many mis- takes too often - and a mistake made here frequently results in a goal. Our Green line showed flashes of ability at times. Chris Merritt cer- tainly improved as the season wore on and especially his shooting from the right wing position. John Lytle tried his best but was caught out of position more often than not. Dennis Hublit, our captain and centre and only Grade 13 member worked hard but his lack of skating over the years took its toll. Our best line was the Red line; two boys from Grade 9, Graham Johnson and Neil Jamieson, and a Grade 11 boy, Buzz Green. Neil and Graham worked very hard and well together and proved themselves the scoring leaders of the team. 1 knew from the start of the year that this group would have to provide 90% of the scoring, which they did. These three worked very well together and are to be commended. I personally feel that Buzz was the most improved player on the team. Our Yellow line had a rough year. Just as they were starting to ' gel ' Jim Wetmore broke his leg in a freak accident at practice. Our centre. Bruce Peart, must learn to play the game and not take ' runs ' at his op- ponents, as he usually ended up in the penalty bo.x, something that we could ill afford. Perry Joseph also improved as the season went on and displayed flashes of greatness -consis- tency is his problem. This might sound like a scathing re- port, however, it is a justified criti- que with no malice intended. Never- theless, I would like to thank aU of you for an interesting and at times rewarding season. I am sure we have all learned something - after all, the object of any game is still to play for its enjoyment. A vote of thanks must go to Fraser Cutler who was our con- scientious manager. 3rd Team Hockey FRONT ROW: Smith, Bielski, Pritchard, Lyall, Slattery II, Webb I, Crosbie III. CENTRE ROW: Gibson I, Grimm, Green II, Beasley, Eagleson, Freeman. BACK ROW: Mr. Landry, Durrant, Timmins, Keates, Runyon, Slade, Doherty. This year ' s version of the third hockey team was a coach ' s dream, com- bining excellent goaltending and de- fence with a potent offensive attack. We were blessed with intelligent, competent skaters, and these two factors were important elements in many of oiu victories. The team played two games before Christmas, winning both. These early games clearly demonstrated our strengths and weaknesses, and allow- ed us to make changes to capitalize on the former and to improve upon the latter. Our first game on returning from holidays proved to be our worst dis- play of the season, for although we outshot the opposition, we nonethe- less bowed 1-2 to an Oakville club (we later defeated this team 8-1). This loss seemed to jolt the team for we won our next five games be- fore losing 1-6 to a vastly superior team at SAC. Injuries and illness hampered us at this stage, and although we played good hockey, we managed only a tie in our next three games. Following this slump, the team revitalized, and we ended the season on a positive note by winning our last six games. The high points of the season were our game with Ridley and our second meeting with SAC. The Thirds had not defeated Ridley for the past eight or nine years, and this time we managed a come-from-behind 3-2 win in the ' matchbox ' at Ridley, which made the victory all the more pleasing. SAC had completely dominated us both physically and psychologically in Aurora (we lost 1-6), yet at home we won another come-from-behind squeaker, 5-4, with a booming point shot by Prit- chard with 1:50 remaining. This was the most thrilling moment I have had coaching at Appleby, and the team was so ' high ' after this one that we won our final two games, 3-2 over TCS (we had previously tied them in Port Hope with three goals in the final eight minutes), and 8-1 over Crescent. Oui left wings were Keates, Beasley, and Slade. Keates (13 pts. ) over- came skating difficulties with ex- tremely tough checking in the cor- ners, and his hard work produced excellent results. Although Beasley ' s size and appendix were disadvantages on occasion, his intelligent play- making was a great asset to the team. Slade (18 pts. ) was the surprise of the season: although not our best skater, he had the knack of being in the right place at the right time, and his thirteen goals were the deci- sive factor in many of our games. At centre we had Slattery II, Bielski, and Runyon. Jim Slattery (21 pts. ) was the spark plug of our offense. He never stopped skating, and his fearsome checking and constant en- thusiasm invariably stirred the team to greater effort. Bielski was a pro- ficient skater, and his fore-checking and backchecking were a great help, especially to the defence. Runyon skated well, but only in fits and starts. His great performance at Ridley was a chief factor in our vic- tory there. Our right wings were Durrant, Free- man and Grimm. Durrant (15 pts. ) initially had scoring problems, but he subsequently found the range and his passes into the slot often set up goals. Freeman (10 pts. ) found great difficulty in scoring with the puck in the crease, but on the whole I think he was the most improved player on the team. Charlie Grimm was a fearless checker for his size, unafraid to hit anything that moved. The defense consisted of Pritchard, Webb, Doherty, and McAlister. McAlister worked very hard both in practice and games; Doherty ' s ska- ting improved, and although he failed to score a goal, he assisted on a fair number, and was a competent defenceman. Webb I (13 pts. ), a late addition, displayed great ability in controlling the play, and he handled himself very coolly in our zone. The mainstay of our defense, and indeed of the team, was our captain, Doug Pritchard (15 goals, 9 assists). His brilliant rushes, vi- cious shots, and obvious overall ability were a vital reason for our success. Doug was also a confident, yet humble, leader, and he has everyone ' s thanks for all he did for this team. Our goalies were " Smiley " Smith, whose confidence and ability in- creased as the season progressed, and Peter Lyall, our starting goaltender, without whose excellent play (2:31 G A Ave. in 16 games) we would have been doomed. Time and again he came up with impossible saves in close games, and one cannot say enough about his contribution to this team. The journeymen players were Tim- mins, Gibson I, Green II, Stuart I, and Eagleson. Timmins substituted both on left wing and defense, and his bullish rushes tended to soften up the opposition. Gibson I was a good skater and checker, but a broken arm shortened his season. " Buzz " Green II learned the meaning of " offside " and developed a shot, and should see more action next year. Eagleson was often ill, and thus saw little ice time - maybe next year. One other person helped to make this a winning season - our incredibly competent and ' vocal ' manager, Paul Crosbie. His antics on the bench provided humour and encouragement, and the team would not have been so cohesive without him. It was indeed a very good year, and 1 wish to thank all of you for the hard work you put forth, for it achieved excellent results. Many moons will probably pass before I have another group of such good calibre players. Played Won Lost Tied 1st Basketball Team SEATED: Tate, Collins, Casperd, Mann 1, Choy. STANDING: Mr. Larsen, Havill, Hwang, Jennings n, Kaunas, Roberuon, Polakowski, Mr. White. At the beginning of the year we didn ' t expect to have a great season. We had about three or four exhibition games and they did not do much to garnish any optimism, but the team kept plugging away in the hopes of improve- ment. We had no real planned offense going into the first league game against TCS so we tried to compensate with a pressing, but more importantly hustling, defense. The defense of the entire team kept TCS off the board and also gave us opportunities for easy shots, most of which, fortunately, we made. At the end of the game the team realized that it had potential and it brought the morale of the team up sky- high. We won our first three games by large margins and the team was playing well together and looking forward to other league games. Then the team went into a dismal shooting slump. It wasn ' t the result of overconfidence but rather just bad timing as it coincided with three league games all of which we lost. Throughout all this, the defense, which had been strong, continued as such and kept the scores down. The only excuse for losing the UCC game was appalling shooting, as the low 24-17 score would indicate. Against Ridley we shot well enough to lead 25-16 at the half but later were out- hustled by an inspired Ridley team who held us to one point in the entire second half. The third loss was to a good SAC team whom we would have had trouble beating even if we had played well. That was our last loss for sometime. After that game, Mr. White designed an offense that enabled us to create weaknesses in a defense and then take our pick of ways to attack m W! ' k i -m ' HiltHH ' H V mC w t f - ' wkSu ■I ' lEP ' fY ' - -- --cs m it. In the five game winning streak that resulted, we revenged our earlier loss to UCC quite convincingly 67-47 and won a close game against Ridley on the merit of our good foulshooting. We beat TCS again but didn ' t play well, consistently leaving us vulner- able to a good team which would take advantage of such lapses. Such a team was SAC and we weren ' t able to come back from a dismal first quarter that found us down 24-8. We eventual- ly lost 56-48. This season was a break from the tra- dition of past seasons as we won as a team and lost as a team. There was no dependence on one or two men for scoring, thus putting opposing defences at a disadvantage. When we won, it was because of a well-balanced effort by everyone in the game. When we lost, we usually lost badly due to a breakdown of the whole team and not because of only one man. All in all it was a very rewarding season for the players as we improved steadily during the year and compiled the best record for the First Basketball Team at Appleby in many years. The success of the team is due almost entirely to the dedicated coaching of Mr. White whose practice sessions enable a player to improve tenfold during a season if he attacks them en- thusiastically. This, combined with his preparation of the team for games, was the major factor behind our suc- cessful season and we give him our hearty thanks. 2nd Basketball Team FRONT ROW: Jennings II. Havill, Polakowski. BACK ROW: Gall I, Cheng, McMurchy II, To, Mr. White Mr. White, in trying to build a team this year, worked on fundamentals more than intricate plays. His hope was to prepare us for next year. The season could not be described as a successful one (4 wins-7 losses) because the team was often defeated by inexperience. The loss of Elgin McMurchy, our starting center, after the second game left our offense somewhat less potent than it had been. John Gall took over the posi- tion and for a newcomer to basket- ball, filled it quite well. Though the opposition often gave us more trouble than we expected, our de- fence at times was surprisingly good. We would like to thank Mr. White for his coaching but especially for his patience. MEMBERS OF THE TEAM: HavUl, Jennings II, Co-Captains; Gall I, Van Tighem I, To, McMurchy II, Cheney, Cheng, Leung, McMurchy 1. 3rd Basketball Team If one was to look over our record one might think we just had an average season, with four wins, four losses, and one tie. In the eyes of the players, it was different. In two of our games, against SAC and TCS, we played teams made up of older players, although the real reason for our loss was lack of experience. How- ever, in the guard positions, there was some experience with Phil Taylor and Mike Rosseel. These two were our play -makers and they helped us come from behind in certain cases. In the forward position we had Vincent Stewart. He added many points to our scoreboard with his long range shot. Under the basket we had excellent re- bounding with Matt Gall and Lance Thomson. Others must be mentioned for their hard work. These were for- wards J. P. Rachmaninoff, Mike Bierbrier, Mark Van Tighem, James FRONT ROW: Rachmaninoff II, Rosseel II, Thomson I, Taylor II, Gall n, Stewart I. BACK ROW: Rev. Sharpe, Van Tinghem II, Kishino, Brown, Beatson, Bierbrier, Hou II, Cannon II. Brown, David Hou, and the four foot wonder, Ashley Kishino. Also, the two substituting guards, Carl Cannon and David Beatson, are deserving of praise. Squash Team Since the beginning of the year, the Squash team has had to make up the loss of three of its five members who left last year. It has succeeded in doing this most effectively. The ad- dition of John Partington, a player from the Junior Schoo l, helped im- mensely, as did that of Roy Timmins, who besides playing as our number three player, was also a member of the Third Hockey Team. Martin Caird, the team ' s senior member, was just as instrumental in rejuvenat- ing the team. He played steadily throughout the season. James McKenzie and Wayne Sims rotated consistently for the first two positions, and both improved as the term wore The team had a winning season, only losing two matches, one to TCS and the other to Ridley. In the Appleby Invitational Squash Tournament the RSHJ HHIH SEATED: McKenzie, Sims, Farrington I. STANDING: Timmins, Mr. Larsen, Caird. team was defeated by the Toronto Cricket Club while UCC went on to win the competition. A word of thanks is necessary to Gerry Droge, Tim Menzies, and Rob Maslon who faithfully came to the rescue when another player was needed, and also to our coach, Mr. Larsen. 59 Swim Team This year the swim team was on trial. The results were mixed. The Juniors won all three meets while the Senior Team was only defeated once, by a very good team at St. Andrews. We also held a strong Ridley team till the final relay. At Ridley the diving was good but more practice will improve I L . . . I. mA I . =} md »r i k the results. However the team is young and there is plenty of reserve in the upper Junior school. Bill Dietrich deserves special men- tion. On two occasions he swam very well to give us a few extra yards in the first leg of the freestyle relay. Had colours been awarded, he would have received them for his swimming. Mike Barber, Dave Stuart, and John Wright, the veterans of last year ' s team, worked very hard, and will form the basis of next year ' s team. Stuart ' s freestyle has been outstanding, and of equal importance has been the all-round strength of Barber and Wright. In the Junior team, special mention must go to Craig Stowe who in Grade 6 shows great promise as a breast- stroke swimmer. Unfortunately for us, he is leaving for Vancouver this summer - we wish him good luck. The other members of the team, both Senior and Junior, have all given their best, many swimming three races per meet. This is the spirit we want. Lastly, we as a team would like to thank Mr. Berriman who organized all our meets himself. Without his encouragement and enthusiasm we would have very little to show for the season. Senior League The senior league, which is made up of all the hockey team rejects, had an extremely successful season this year. The main objective of the league is simply to have fun, and in this it excelled. Apart from one broken nose, the odd stitch here and there, and multiple bruises, the " squad " was injury -free. Mr. Smith was responsible for the success of the league. From start to finish he kept its members constantly ' digging ' and his effort paid off, as our four game record of three wins and one tie shows. ippp » ' ii. .

Our first two games after returning from the holidays indicated that the boys were still filled with either turkey, or stuffing, or perhaps both! We gave the puck away countless times and skated somnolently, re- sulting in losses to Crescent (6-5) and Ridley (3-2). From this point on in the schedule, however, the team really lived up to its promise. In the remaining nine games we won eight and tied one, outscoring the combined oppo- sition 74-14. Captain Ron Withey played outstand- ing hockey both offensively and de- fensively. It was most exciting to see him take off on one of his patent- ed " Bobby Orr type " rushes. Martin Kenney and Tony Stafford provided very capable and cool goaltending for the team throughout the season. Mention must be made of the six exhibition games played during the season; these were played on Monday evenings, usually against OakvUle Minor Bantam teams. Our last two games were losses to an outstanding team from Fergus Elora. The last game was played (thanks to Mr. Giffin) in Maple Leaf Gardens and proved most exciting as we were edged 4-3 by the Fergus team. In closing, I would like to say how much I enjoyed coaching the team this year. You proved eager, atten- tive, and always gave your best. You played some very fine hockey. Good luck in the future!

All members worked hard and pulled together as a team to strive for as many wins as were possible against our often, exceedingly strong opposition. Statistically, out of our ten league games we managed three wins and one tie. Our wins were over the team from St. George ' s once and the team from Hillfield twice. Our tie was with UCC. Al- though we were beaten soundly by the teams from Ridley and Crescent, they had strong teams which played very well and the excellent efforts of our team were not powerful enough to overcome this situation. FRONT ROW: Manbert, Menzies II, Wilson II, Gallagher, Stone, Day, Piatt II, Beckett. BACK ROW: Mr. O ' Leary, Stacey, Bloemen 11, Bateman, Suchanek II, Burchmore I. Our offensive lines all played very well with the intent of maintaining a high scoring record while realizing their checking responsibilities. Our strongest and highest scoring line was a combination of Stacey (our captain), Burchmore I, and Bloeman 11 (one of our assistant captains). Another hard working line was Menzies II, Gallagher, and Day. We also had a strong line from Grade Seven com- posed of Wilson II, Beckett, and Piatt II. Two boys who joined the team at the beginning of this term- Stafford I and Webb II - have aided the team offensively as substitutes for our regular forwards. Backing up our offense, we had five defensemen who alternated to fulfill this vital role. They were Bateman (another assistant captain), McLaugh- lin, Manbert, Suchanek II, and Suchanek III. They gave good sup- port to the goaltenders and also as- sisted on many of our goals by setting up our forwards. Our goaltending duties were shared by Piatt I and Stone. They turned in many strong performances in the nets which often held our team in contention during close games. Between the games the boys used the afternoons to develop their hockey skills by hard work and training in the arena. During the games the boys always attempted to play hard and to maintain a good standard of sportsmanlike behavior and com- petition. Jr. School 3rd Hockey The Junior School Third Hockey Team had a very successful season. Out of a total of twelve games, the team won seven, tied two, and lost three. Although there were no official league standings the third team placed first, ahead of UCC, Ridley, and Crescent. The ability to outscore the opposi- tion a majority of times was indica- tive of the play of the boys. Everyone played hard but fairly. Their enthusiasm and sportsmanlike conduct helped to carry the team through a winning season. Hard work, self-discipline, and true sportsmanship formed the core of the Junior School Third Hockey Team. FRONT ROW: Gratton, Hamilton, Mueller II, Gilroy, Stewart.

" Ben Shahn On these pages we hope that you can share some the excitement of discovery and learning that hav taken place in the Art Studio during this year. This is, unfortunately, only a small select- ion. Every students ' work in its own way, is worthy of display. Some of the most precious memories of my life have taken form here at Appleby and it is with these safely tucked away that 1 look forward to the exciting challenges of Ufe as a full time artist in the Isle of Man. I am confident that my successor will find his life at Appleby as exciting and rewarding as I have and that in him his students will find a wealth of knowledge and inspiration that will enrich their lives. The stamp of one act committed prior, Being of nature ' s destiny, I bore; Branded like a drunk in a midnight choir Something so little, cutting to the core. It took from my achievements, although Strived for with all possible strength and might, The very pith and marrow of my soul, Knowing full well; I did not turn and fight. I sigh the lack of many things I sought, I moan the expense of more quested sights, Turning my back with but hesitant thought. I walk searching like death on dateless nights. So be it, a contriving soul of Nature, I ' m not guilty, though a supposed failure. By Joe Vickers (12E) Once upon a time there was a squirrel whose name was Jim. Jim wasn ' t like most other squirrels because he didn ' t have a body, in fact he was only a head. When the other squirrels played games like football or baseball, Jim always became the ball. One day Jim became sick and tired of being the ball. That night he wished that he had a body. The next morning when Jim awoke, he discovered that he did have a body. He was so happy that he jumped out of bed and ran out of the house. Unfortunately, Jim didn ' t look before crossing the road; he was run-over by a two ton truck. The moral of the story is quit while you ' re ahead! P.G. VanTighem (lOE) The Strange Fate Of E. Neadle E. Neadle was a most despicable per- son indeed. He was scrawny, seedy - looking and weasel-eyed. He had never performed a decent act in his life and never planned to. He was, in fact, a grave-robber. Even so, few in the little town of Dunstable felt he deserved the fate that awaited him. Dunstable was a remote vUlage in a remote corner of the British Isles, and there was one thing this tiny backward town had that London herself could not boast of - a most bizarre grave- yard. Like perhaps a hundred others in England, it was supposed to be haunted. But more than that, the townfolk in the seventeenth century buried jewels and other valuables with their dead. It was indeed a choice spot for a grave-robber. How a small-time cockney pickpocket got word of all this is still unknown, but find out he did - and it was this knowledge that brought about his tragic undoing. The first time the good folk of Dunstable knew of Neadle was on a clouded night when the moon danced in and out of view. A person who happened to be just leaving the local pub, saw him racing down the hill- side path that led to the ancient cemetery as if the hounds of death were at his heels. " Which way to the constable ' s office? " Neadle gasped. The startled citizen pointed down the street. Neadle barely broke stride as he galloped on. Crathers, the constable, was just pre- paring for bed when this wild-eyed apparition of a human stumbled into the one cell jail-house that he had made his home. Crathers reached for his shot-gun but paused when he took a closer look at the pitiful quivering figure before him. " Blimey! " Neadle blurted. " The saints be with me that you are here, Constable. " " Calm down, man. Who are you? What are you doing about this village? " Neadle slumped like a rag doll into a chair. " I-I ' ve come to confess my crimes, I ' ave. I ' m the very foulest thing on earth Constable. The lowest, the vilest, the down-into-the ground dirtiest thief out of London, I am. Your nibs, it ' s a grave-robber I be! " Constable Crathers studied the spindly wreck of flesh before him for a mo- ment. Then he rose and patted Neadle on the shoulder. " Just sit quiet right here, " he said. " I ' ll get my deputy and then you can tell both of us your story. " " Hurry! Please hurry " , Neadle said with pleading eyes. " Time is im- portant - important as life, it is. " " Of course, " said Crathers as he hur- ried towards the rear door to awaken his deputy asleep on a cot in the back. He shook the man by the shoulders. " Wake up, Charlie! Looks like we ' ve got a case for the mental farm in Hamburg. Get dressed and ready to drive him over there. " When Crathers returned with his deputy, Neadle was staring wall-eyed at the floor, head down. " Come now, man, brace up. First tell us your name. " " Emery Neadle. " " All right Emery , what are you doing in our village? " Neadle ' s face twisted in pain and he rose from his chair trembling. " Blimey, I told you I came to rob your graveyard! It ' s almost dawn, it is! I haven ' t much time left! Let me tell you my tale and sign a confession before it ' s too late. " The constable beamed at the terrified man in what was meant to be a com- forting smUe. " Speak right out, Emery. We ' ll listen to every word. " Emery Neadle ' s voice sounded hollow with fear as he spoke. " As I say, " he began, " I came out of London to rob your graveyard. I knew there was gold and jewels and all sorts of valu- ables buried right there among the dead. Well, it seemed a right patty - cake job. All I need to do is slip in careful-like with my little spade and just dig away. Because the place is haunted didn ' t bother me! " Neadle paused and wiped persfHration from his forehead with the cuff of his sleeve. " Well, that first part was dandy fine. I dug myself into the ground by a big headstone that looked like the ancient folk under it might have been carriage trade. Maybe I ' d get some gold trinkets that ' ud bring a good price in London. Maybe even one of those Viking jeweled swords I heard tell was sometimes inside the caskets. " " How did you know about those? " Crathers interrupted. " Later, later, guv. There ' s no time for that now. Just let me tell my tale and sign a written confession first. " " Well, " the London pickpocket went on. " 1 got down six feet right fine and uncovered a rotted worm-holed casket. There was no need to lift the casket top as it was rotted away. 1 just picked the dead wood out and looked in. It was terrible! Just a white pile of dust there but one thing glittered - it was a gold bracelet. I reached in and picked it up. " " Suddenly , so help me by the clang of of Big Ben, that dust just started to blow about like a wind was blowing it wild. Faster and faster the stuff whirled around and all the time a terrible cry of hounds from Hades rang in my ears. Then it took form, right before my very own eyes. It was a ghost! Just like you read about in the castles or see in the flicks. It took me by the hand and led me out of the cemetery and the next thing I knew there were four of them sitting around me. One of them said, " You have desecrated our resting place, Emery Neadle, because of your greed. You have disturbed our centuries of peace. The penalty is Death! Now you must become one of us. Have you anything to say for yourself? " " Anything to say! Blimey, constable, 1 had plenty to say. 1 fell on my knees. I begged. I told them this was my first graveyard I had ever tried to rob. I promised to return to London and never set foot in Dunstable County again. " " Emery Neadle, it is our decision that you may go free if you confess your crime to the Constable of Dunstable. " " All the whUe he said that, he put his finger on my forehead and pressed real hard. It seemed to go right into my skull. Then he said " Sign a writ- ten confession before Dawn. If you do not, then the death mark I have placed upon you will bring you to us! " Neadle ' s face whitened even more. He stood up - jabbing his forefinger against his forehead. " It was right here he placed his death finger, Constable right into my brain it seemed to go! " Now Neadle was shrieking, wailing like a man possessed. Constable Crathers and his deputy rushed for- ward managing to catch him just as he collapsed. Dawn was just beginning when Emery Neadle regained consciousness. A cry of terror burst through the jail- house window. " Paper and pencil " he screamed. " 1 must sign before it is too late! " The constable stood him on his feet, comforting him. " Now there, Neadle, just relax. Charlie, here, is going to take good care of you. " As Charlie led him to the car outside, Neadle made gasping sounds, trying to talk. A moment later Charlie re- turned to face Constable Crathers, wide-eyed. " H-he ' s dead, Constable. Dropped cold stone dead just as I opened the door! " " Poor devil, " said the Constable, " but he wasn ' t well. Perhaps it is for the best. Madness is a horrible sick- ness. " " Y-you don ' t understand, " stam- mered Charlie. " You ' d better come outside and look at him. " A moment later they both stood look- ing down at the would-be-grave- robber before the car. In the centre of his forehead was a hole the size of a forefinger as if a hot poker had been thrust into his skull. The constable looked over the hill- side. " Dawn, " he miurmured. K. Morrison (Grade 8) There once was a man with a pocket Who thought that he ' d ride on a rocket He said, " Well, good-ijyet " And started to fly. But he simply forgot how to docket.

Nobody ever finishes learning in art. " Doug Kingman The first two things to study are form and values. For me these are the basis of what is serious in Art. . . " Jean Baptiste Camille Corot Music Music should be enjoyed! But there is far more to music than meets the every-day person ' s eye. During the last academic year, Appleby has, we hope, enjoyed its music more and learnt something from it. Most of us have Chapel as the only outward sign of corporate music, so it is here that the biggest strides have been taken. New settings of the Jubilate and Communion Service have been written, both using the ' semi -pop ' idiom, which has brightened up the singing generally. A number of both ' Ancient ' and ' Modern ' new hymn tunes have been learnt with enthusiastic response. But underneath the Chapel, in the Music Schools during the weeks, music classes have been held and just over eighty instrumentalists have blown their first notes on Trumpet, Trombone, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet and Recorder, or played their first notes on the piano, organ or guitar. So that the new music programme could get off the ground, four practice rooms have been built adjoining the main music room and three new pianos have been acquired. The new organ has caused quite a stir even amongst the most unmusical of us. It is a fine instrument by Allen, which fills the chapel with a joyous sound, fulfilling its purpose of leading the singing admirably. The console is situated on the ground floor rather than up in the ' Gods ' which enables the Director, not only to actually ' hear ' the organ, but also to keep his eagle eye on the choir. The choir ' s highlight of the year of course was the Carol Service, at which they sang a collection of both old and new carols. During the year they have sung the following anthems: Jesu, joy of man ' s desiring Bach Ave vetum corpus Mozart If ye love me keep my commandments Tallis Amazing Grace Trad Rejoice the Lord is King Kelly Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in B Flat Stanford This joyful Eastertide Wood O come ye servants of the Lord Tye Cantate Domino Pitoni The Choir also attended two concerts; the Korean Childrens ' Choir at Massey Hall and Canadian Ballet ' s production of Carmina Burana by Carl Off. A number of boys also attended the Oakville Community Concerts. A concert of music took place during the Autumn Term, sandwiched between the Junior and Senior plays. The choir sang two pieces, for one of which Bruce Reid played a violin obligate part. Kenneth Hui played some Chopin and the highlight was the whole Junior School singing Jonah-Man Jazz by Michael Hurd, with great gusto. The new Resource Centre has brought music to the fore with a large selection of books and over seventy -five cassettes of the standard and modern classics, most of which can be followed in miniature score form if the listener so wishes. Music should be enjoyed - used for studying, or just relaxing. In what ever way, Appleby now has the facilities and it is up to the student to use them. Here we have a nucleus: now it must grow ! John Bell Chapel With a new organist - choirmaster, and one hundred new boys, the daily chapel services were modified. Two " singing practices " a week allowed us to learn new hymns and improve our singing of old ones. This also gave Mr. Royse the chance to write (and us to sing) modern music for the canticles and some of the hymns. The two films on science and faith and the candlelight services provided inspiration. Another enjoyable innovation has been the series of talks on parts of the church building, the prophets, and the Chinese church. During the year the following guests spoke in the chapel: The Rev. K. Paterson The Rev. G. M. Anderson The Rev. Canon F. A. Smith The Rev. Father M. Peterkin Captain D. Patstone The Rev. M. Esterbrooks The Rev. G.D. Watt Mr. F.E. Gaebelein The Rev. ¥.. Miller The Rev.

Buzz Green went to Shawnigan and Ian Hyde-Lay came to Appleby. Ian was in Grade 10, a friendly, talkative, well-liked chap who quickly became an exuberant part of Appleby. He was a very valuable participant in many rugger games and as an old pro at the sport found the caUbre of our rugger teams impressive. The standard of school work in both the schools was in his opinion about the same and he had little difficulty in fitting in. Perhaps Ian best summed up the feelings of himself and those who met him here: " 1 made new friends and found the exchange an exciting and valuable experience. " Spring Sports First Team Cricket M A i I K FRONT ROW: Dickens I, Casperd, Mann I, Mullen, Christensen, Sims. BACK ROW: Mr. Larsen, MacFarlane 1, Suchanek, Merritt, MacFarlane II, Kaunas, Mr. Menzies. It was thought that this was going to be one of those Championship seasons, the sort that comes along once every decade. However, these pre -season speculations came to naught. The talent was there in the fielding, with five good bowlers. The trouble arose when we had to bat. We lacked good attacking batsmen and this was reflected in our highest score of the season of 85 runs. Much thanks must be given to our coach, Mr. Menzies. We regret that we were unable to do any better this season, his last at Appleby . Colours were given to A.B. Mann, Captain; CO. Casperd, Asst. Capt. ; G. O. Dickens and D.K. Mullen.. The Oakville Cricket Club prizes for best batting and bowling averages went to C.J. Merritt and G. O. Dickens respectively. G.O. Casperd was chosen to play for the Independent Schools All -Star Team against the Toronto Cricket Club. a Second Cricket Team ? ■■■•, ■ FRONT ROW: Joseph, Timmins, Keefe, Jennings II, Slade, Taylor I. BACK ROW: Mr. Dickens, Fleming, Mann II, Upton, Thomson, Mustard, Droge, Cameron, Havill. The 2nd team had a " break even " season, winning two (against T.C. S. and Toronto Cricket Club) drawing two (against U. C. C. ) and losing two (against Ridley). Fleming led the team on and off the field, and in fact the whole squad was so co-operative, cheerful and willing to really try, that the coach ' s job was a pleasure. The attack was spear -headed by Droge and Mann who bowled quite consistently, but who both let too many slip down the leg-side. Mustard and Havill took some wickets when they were sorely needed, with their slow left handers. When they can drop every ball on a length they will be very useful. Fleming, with a sling shot action, was often quite effective. The opening batsmen were good. Havill, the most improved cricketer on the team, had a very sound defence, while his partner, Jennings, was more agressive. However these two, and the middle batsmen, Timmins, Joseph, Droge, Taylor and Fleming all showed the effects of too short a season. If only we had another month these batsmen would be making a lot of runs. Each one has almost learned the difficult art of batmanship and if players like these will use the winter months to improve their technique, they will reap that most satisfying of accomplish- ments - sending the ball repeatedly to the boundary while lesser beings from Ridley, U. C.C., and T.C. S. toil desperately and in vain. ; « ; BOWLING Overs Maidens Runs Wickets Average Fleming 19 7 27 5 5.8 Droge 53 11 126 18 7.0 Mann 32 9 83 11 7.4 Mustard 12 2 49 5 9.8 Havill 7 28 2 14 BATTING Inning s Not Outs Hig lest Score Total Runs Average Droge 6 1 28( retired) 88 17.6 Jennings 6 15 50 8.3 Havill 5 13 25 5.0 Timmins 4 9 20 5 Fleming 6 1 10 24 4.8 Joseph 5 8 15 3 Under 15 Cricket Team sr T FRONT ROW: Dickens II, J amieson, Beasley.

Considering the lack of any real cricket knowledge at the beginning of the season and only 3 or 4 players having spent any considerable time at the sport; the team welded themselves into a competent side. Early in the season the batting relied heavily onjamieson. Captain; and Johnson, and when these failed, low scores resulted. It was most encourag- ing, therefore, to see the improve- ment of Connor, Webb, Green and Beasley in this department. The bowling was tidy, Beasley bowling a line and direction and deservedly topping the averages. Jamieson gave good support, after handing over the wicket keeping to Green (who made the position his own. ) The side was weak in close catching, but the outfielding was generally steady, with Bielski and Hodge having strong, accurate throws. With poor wickets it is rather difficult to bat with any confidence, let alone make correct strokes; but with the introduction of a new hard wicket I am confident that their technique will improve next year. A most enjoyable season was had by all.

For the first time in the school ' s history, 15 aside rugby was played throughout the entire season. In years before seven aside was the standard game and 15 ' s was played only annually against Lakefield College. The team had a very successful season, finishing as ISAA 15 aside champions and having a near perfect record of 4 wins and 1 tie. In the all-Ontario Tournament, we came close to beating the eventual champ- ions but came out with a 6-4 loss. Two penalties in our half gave them sufficient points to go on to the final. In our first game against U. C. C. , we defeated them 54-0. The conditions C2?? B j • tS - ) )t -i " 1 IrK " n .S,..- ' were good, and our scrum played a tremendous game. The backs were a little disorganized but for our first game of the season, with many mem- bers having never played before, it was an encouraging start to say the least. Our second game of the season was against S.A.C. , after 2 weeks with no game. Again we were blessed with good conditions, which our team needed, having very fast backs. The final score resulted in a tie, both teams scoring a try. This was the only game of the season that a try was scored against us. The team was unaware of the tough competition they were up against and this showed in the play of the backs and forwards. Ridley was next, and our squad came prepared to play a tough game. The outcome was in our favor, downing Ridley 7-0. The Backs had a steady game and received much support from the forwards. Our next game was against the favour- ed T.C.S. team. This game was by far the team ' s best. Conditions were favourable and there seemed no stop- ping the backs. Time and time again we went over, and the final score was 52-0. Our last game was against Lakefield. The two rival teams came out both prepared for a good hard game. In the history of the 15 aside at Appleby, Appleby had beaten Lakefield once, and Lakefield had won twice. Lakefield scored first on a penalty kick, but failed to score again. Appleby won 15-3 scoring 3 tries and a drop goal. 4? - i " t-- l ' i ' . ' l The open 7 aside team was defeated in the finals of the ISAA 7 aside tournament by a score of 12-8. The conditions weren ' t ours for our fleet of foot. By the close of the season we had scored 132 points and had only 7 scored against us the entire season. nt The team as a whole would like to express its thanks to Mr. Washington, out dedicated coach, who took a team of " rookies " and produced a team of Champions. Also to our fearless leader, Doug Jennings, who played a fantastic season at scrum half and lead the team throughout the season. Senior Rugger Team FRONT ROW: Maslon, Rosseel II, Cantle, Crosbie II, Kaneff, Katz. CENTRE ROW: Stuart, Hyde-Lay, Keevil, Hodge I, Wright, Reid. BACK ROW: McMurchy II, Van Tighem I. Gall I, Peart, McAlister, McWilliams. Our season, much to our surprise, turned out to be very successful. During the first week or so we lost most hope for a good rugger season. However, after much work and Rev. Stuart ' s patience, we were ready to play our first game against Upper Canada. Fortunately, perhaps, our inexperience was matched by their ' s. Cantle and Rosseel must be congratulated for scoring several tries. Despite the 12-0 victory the team still needed a lot of work. We had gained much experience by the time we met Ridley. A score on a penalty kick gave us a 3-0 lead for the first half and a convert later on gave us a 7-0 victory. We played two seven aside games against Hillfield. In the first Slattery scored a try on a great run but lost the convert when the ball hit the cross- bar. The final score was 4-4. In the second game we worked much better as a team and came home with a 14- 10 victory. After a season of no losses we looked forward to victory at the ISAA tournament. Our first game was played in rain and mud against T.C.S. under-17. T.C.S. proved to be much more sure-footed in the mud and were soon winning. We were not on the score board by half time and were losing hope. Despite many individual efforts the team could not get moving and we lost the game and a chance at the championship. We played our second game against U. C.C. Both teams realized they had no chance at the championship and so there was no real pressure on either side. The game was played purely for enjoyment. Our team showed the spectators that in fact we did know what rugger was all about and the score indicated a decisive Appleby victory. In regular season play we did not lose any games. Despite the loss at the tournament all the team had a reward- ing season partly due to the experience gained, but also to the fun we had. Reverend Stuart deserves particular thanks for his patience and hard work, both of which turned a collection of boys with only three or four experienced rugger players into an effective team. St. Andrew ' s came the next week for what proved to be our toughest game. They soon scored, but a good try by McAlister put Appleby ahead. In the second half we lost our lead when S.A.C. scored two quick tries. Cantle intercepted a pass and closed the gap. After two converts by Hyde-Lay we finished the game in a 12-12 tie. Junior Rugger Team We began our season on April 25th against a U. C.C. team. We lacked some experience but made up for it by constant drive. As the game wore on we gained momentum and were victorious at the end of 60 minutes by a score of 9-4. Our next game was against a group of bearded 15 year -olds from Fenton School. Due to a deficit in size we lost by 13-0. We travelled to U.C.C. with some added punch to our backs in the form of Mike Rosseel who scored 2 tries and led us to a victory of 16-8. We had a return match at home with Fenton and came up on top with a score of 23-6. The main reason for our success was the help from John Slattery and Mike Milner, two under 15s from Open and Ian Hyde -Lay and Mike Rosseel. From Senior, Slattery I scored 3 tries in this game. FRONT ROW: Graham, Slattery 11, Crosbie III, Cheney, Hall-Brooks. CENTRE ROW: Stewart, Southee, Roloff, Jennings 111, Cannon II. BACK ROW: Mr. Larsen, West, Gall II, Keates, Van Gastel. Callen. We then went to an all -Ontario 15 aside Rugby competition at York University. But we went down into defeat by scores of 3-6 and 3-13. Ian Hyde -Lay kicked both penalty goals. Now we went to sevens full of high spirits at the ISAA tournament at S.A.C. We won 3 games and the championship with scores of 24-0, 14-6, and 14-0. We played against U.C.C. A and B teams and S.A.C. in the finals. During the season we played 3 games against a local High School and won each contest. i 1 P 1 t ,_ jy ' ' r ■ . ' ;J( J ...S S i The reasons for our successful season this year were a well balanced team, with powerful hard-working forwards and quick efficient backs as well as a very competent coach. Out team was led by the constant example of high spirit and enthusiasm shown by Paul Crosbie our captain. Our thanks to Mr. Larsen for a most enjoyable and benefiting season and to Mr. Day for his successful 7 aside coaching and to the players from the higher teams who came down to play with us. Also to those players who always showed up to practise but saw little real action. Tennis Team The tennis team suffered severely this year from a lack of experienced players. There was an abundance of spirit but such little experience that the Appleby team placed fifth in the I.S.A.A. tournament. In the regular season it won two matches, lost two and tied one. Peter Taylor was captain of the team of six. He was only in grade ten and as with several other young players will help create a much stronger tennis team in the future. Hopefully, Mr. Abbott ' s coaching and support will then bear fruit. RBEBBM FRONT ROW: Browne, Machan, Taylor, Cannon 1. BACK ROW: Caird, Wang, Paterson. " a ' Su ' Ti .

If everyone had played as well as they did against Upper Canada probably all four matches would have been won. The potential is here for a good first team next year. In the field the team was moulded around the reliable wicket -keeping of Martin Kenney and the steady bowling of Peter Whitney and Brad Thomson, with Gerald Baiz ' s leg-spinners and Nigel Day ' s off -spinners in reserve. Un- fortunately Chris Suchanek never quite got his foot -work right in order to be- come an effective fast bowler. The batting often looked good in practice, and in matches most batsmen started their innings well, but lacked the experience to ' settle down. ' Paul Bateman looked very good every time he batted; with confidence and a greater array of shots he should become a reliable batsman. Chris Suchanek showed that he can concentrate and punish a loose ball. Peter Whitney is on the threshold of success, for he is gradually building a good basic techni- que; Nigel Day and Jamie Washington too are going to make runs as their confidence grows. Several batsmen are hard hitters, David Burchmore, Stephen McBride, Ricky Bruce and Tony Stafford, and with more work on their basic technique they will be able to hit the ball more often. It has been an enjoyable season - apart from the too frequent rain - chiefly because of the great enthusiasm shown by everyone. 97 Jr. School Fourth Cricket FRONT ROW: Pegg, Shetler, Stuart II. Richards, Piatt II. BACK ROW: Hogarth II, Blaney, Hogarth III, Van Tighem III, Hardie. The team played three games with Ridley, losing two and having a favourable draw in the third. Ably led by Brian Stuart, there were many enthusiastic performers. Notable among them were John Van Tighem, Colin Richards, John Hardie, David Burke and David Piatt. If they show as much eagerness and interest in the future they will become successful players. Jr. School Fifth Cricket Although the weather was overcast and the grounds were wet at Ridley, this did not deter our team from a victory, for their first match of the season. We went into bat first and a total of 79 was scored in just over an hour. We were resigned for a draw. However, with some excellent bowling from Heuton and Brackenridge and a good catch by Smith we managed to skittle the Ridley team out for 26 in just under a half -hour. Our second match, again against Ridley, but at home, was won with even more confidence. We were once again put into bat first where we scored a resounding 138 for 4, declared. Notable scores by Reid with 41 and Russell with 39. not out. Ridley batted for ten minutes before tea, to lose two wickets for five runs. Their final total was 48 due to some good catches and some fine bowling by Brackenridge who was responsible for six wickets. FRONT ROW: Toles. Brackenridge. Mueller I, Giffin II.

The Resource And Science Centre The Resource and Science Centre, which was finally completed in late October, provides Appleby students with academic opportunities second to none in this Country at the Secondary School level. The facili- ties and opportunities which are pro- vided may be considered in two parts: the Resource Centre and the Science Centre, consisting of three spacious labs. In the Resource Centre itself students are able to find material for projects from a collection that includes an initial book stock of about 7000 volumes (one-half of capacity), films, fUmstrips, slides, microfilm, journals, flat pictures, prints, government documents, audio tapes, visual tapes, sheet maps, atlases, etc. There are about forty individual carrels which can be used for study in relative quiet and isolation. A self-contained pro- jection room and other smaller semi- nar rooms facilitate the use of equip- ment and material within the Library and permit small groups to meet and converse without distrubing others. An Instructional Materials Centre at the rear of the Library houses a variety of materials and equipment which permits students and Staff to be pro- ducers of media. Since Appleby is a Residential School, the Library pro- vides such items as games, records, tapes and popular magazines and paperbacks for the recreational needs of the students. Finally a full time professional library staff makes certain that effective and efficient use of the new facilities is achieved. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ' iruiiiiir One of rhe most important events in the history of the School was the building of the three new laboratories. From the standpoint of the teaching of Chemistry, the new facilities pro- vide the answer to several long- standing problems. The sheer inadequacy of floor space in the old classroom has given way to a roomy, well-laid out " laboratory " type working space which virtually eliminates the possibility of one student ' s using anothers earhole as a sink. The School decided on a peripheral bench arrangement because it provides minimum inter-student interference, while making possible ma.ximum supervision. The fact that the teacher can see the whole class, on an eye-to-eye basis, is a powerful deterrent to illegitimate student ac- tivities. It will now be possible for the inter- ested student to spend some of his spare time (which he has in generous amounts) in the completion of experi- mental work that he might have been unable to finish during his regular classes. He might also decide to pursue an investigation beyond the scope prescribed by his te.xt, or, in- deed, to embark upon a course in which he has a self-generated inter- est. The new laboratory is equipped to show educational movies and some modern semi-programmed study units to assist students in areas where they encounter problems have also been added. Last, but not least, the provision of a senior lab gives senior students the opportunity to work independently on any topic related to one of the three disciplines in the hope that Appleby can develop students who are self- motivated, technically skilled, self- disciplined and mature. Unlike many high school laboratories, the new Appleby physics laboratory was designed to meet the unique needs of this branch of s cience alone. You will find in our lab no teacher ' s bench nor neat rows of fixed student benches; instead, good quality tables and lots of elbow room provide the flexibility required by the variety of experiments carried out during the year. An electrical strip running along each wall provides easy access to electrical outlets, while storage cupboards along the sides of the main laboratory allow students immediate access to equipment as it is needed. Both features will become increasingly important as we move towards indi- vidualized study programmes. In addition to the main laboratory there is a smaller adjoining laboratory and preparation room. The small laboratory is available for individual project work outside school hours, for use by senior students during their scheduled study periods, for small group instruction, and for use during regular class periods to provide a dark area for activities such as optics, stroboscopic photography and film viewing. The preparation room pro- vides storage for expensive demonstra- tion equipment and office space where students can receive individual attention without disturbing the rest of a class. With the opening of the new Biology Labs comes a wealth of e.xciting op- portunities for the boys. Within the Main Lab, each boy will be supplied with sufficient equipment and ser- vices so as to enable him to carry on the required laboratory exercises at his own rate. By the acquisition of specific models and specific sets of equipment, he can now probe into anatomy, behaviour, development, ecology, genetics, physiology, and many other areas of biology. His un- derstanding of the uniqueness and complexity of life will be aided by working with and maintaining living populations in the Vivarium - a small room with controlled-environment cabinets. In all, the boys will be exposed to more facets of biology than were previously possible in the facilities we had and, thereby, should develop a fuller understanding of the nature of life. Public Speaking Contest The Edin Heward Memorial Public Speaking Contest never differs from year to year in several respects. The evening begins when the contestants file on stage and sit nervously in their appointed chairs, some displaying a thin veneer of calm, others of sweat. Their eyes wander around the gym- nasium in search of something, any- thing to avoid the 1000 other eyes peering at them. They watch in dreadful anticipation as the Head- master strides to the podium to make his introductory remarks and welcome the judges. This year the judges were Mr. R.J. Smye, an Appleby Old Boy and former winner of the Public Speaking Contest, Mr. J. R. Guest, grandson of the founder of the school, and Mr. P.M. Little, son of the Vice- Chairman of the Board of Governors. All too soon he concludes his remarks and the first quivering speaker is brought before the assembly. It is here that the similarity ends. The ensuing few minutes determine the success or failure of the speaker. All of the speeches of the 1973 Contest were undeniably successes. Some were more successful than others but none were failures. No doubt it was with apprehension that his fellow contestants listened to Tim Menzies charm, coddle and humour his audience. His topic, " The Art of Public Speaking " was un- expectedly interesting. He illustrated every characteristic of the poor speaker and most especially Tim amused the guests with clever mimi- cry of a speaker ' s gesticulations. What might have been a rather dry speech was transformed by his tren- chant wit into a refreshingly appeal - " Baseball in Toronto? " This was the question posed by Charles Havill to the audience, and by the end of his remarks they would probably agree that Toronto could and should have its own professional baseball team. Indeed, for the sports fans present, so well did he get his point across that they may well have included a $20 million stadium in their concensus. " Shockingly chauvinistic " was one opinion of Rob Macfarlane ' s address which queried the ' benefits ' of " Coeducation at Appleby " . What Rob lacked in reliable evidence he made up for with humour, particu- larly appealing to the students. " The Beaver People " a speech " in- spired by a unique personal encounter with a family of beavers " was pre- sented by Daniel Peat. It was much like a fresh breath of air, from the North. Dan told some little known facts about this Canadian creature and included several humourous anecdotes. In contrast to the narrative format of " The Beaver People " , Dave Cannon, the fifth speaker for the evening, chose the topic of " Communicating " which forced one ' s mental machinery to work- He demonstrated the need for more effective person-to-person communication, not through the median of technological wonders but through the use of Man ' s God-given talents. Elgin McMurchy spoke on a subject of which we are all familiar, " Nostalgia . . . . " His introduction was very un unique as he related some of his boy- hood experiences yet in such a way that each thought it was his own past that Elgin was recounting. He managed to maintain this contact with the audience and therefore cap- ture their interest. The final speaker. Bill Dietrich, won the Public Speaking Contest. Bill talked about " Convention and the Non -Conformist " in an informal, fluent and engaging manner. (The adjectives which could be employed here are numerous and all in the Superlative). The content of his speech was as well -prepared and original as his execution of it. Amus- ing, but convincingly real, spoofs on the impulsive ' non-conformist ' added humour. So, too, did his clever physical illustrations and movements (In the course of his address he loosened his tie, took off his jacket, and adopted several ' non-conformist ' postures with the aid of a chair he carried on to the stage). All the speeches were deserving of praise and Bill ' s unanimously, of the prize. 440 Cadet Corps The Corps continued to uphold its fine tradition of Cadet training by producing an excellent standard in the Church Parade to Knox Presbyterian Church, and in the Inspection. Such has been the increase in the strength of the corps that, for the first time in the history of the Cadet Corps, it enjoyed Battalion Status with sixteen Officers and one hundred and sixty cadets. The retiring commanding officer, Major R.M. Kenney, CD, took the Salute for the Church Parade, and for the May 5 inspection, L. Col. P. Fairclough, Commanding Officer, The Royal Regiment of Canada, inspected the Ranks and complimented the cadets on their uniforms and especially on their discipline, which he observed not only in the ceremonial, but also in the Display. The Inspection was followed by a Cadet Ball which ended a busy day on a re- laxing note. V ' lA KtHtni|MH Sports Day OPEN 100 yds. A. Mann J. Burn 10.5 220 yds. A. Mann J. Campb ell 24.8 120 yd.

Withey Mohawk School Colours Today at Appleby there are awards for individuals involved in team sports. The two most important are: First, being placed upon the School Record Board, and the other is re- ceiving one ' s Colours and being able to wear the Colours tie and pin. This system has changed considerably from that used in the beginning. Originally , if one made the First Team and played out the season, then one had one ' s name placed upon the Boards in School House and thus got one ' s Colours. The Boards started in 1911-1912 and represented the sports of Hockey, Cricket and Football (Rugby). The original Boards are still hangin g in CoUey House and list the names of players up to 1945. From this time forward, the names of the players have been continued upon the new sets of Boards found in the Class- room Building. These Boards include the names of players, from 1911-1945, found on the original Boards in Colley House. In 1960 a new policy was established within the School for honouring team players. If one made the First Team, then one became a Team Member and was able to wear the white sweater coat, the letter of one ' s par- ticular Team and any small yearly crest. Today the sweater coat, let- ters or yearly crests are very seldom seen on campus. Having made the list for Team mem- ber the next award is that of having one ' s name placed on the Boards, renamed School Record Boards. There is only a certain number of boys, de- pending on the team sport, picked for the Record Boards. If one is given this award one is eligible to wear the striped First Team Blazer. The gaberdine striped blazers first made their appearance around the time the School was started. It is believed that the School purchased bolts of this English-made cloth and had it brought to Toronto, where it was tailored into the striped blazers. The wearing of the jackets was popular up until 1925 and again, it is be- lieved, from 1934, when a group of lads wore them at a Canadian School Boy Cricket Team match. From 1934 onward, they have been the most prized jacket worn on campus. From the list of boys who have made the Team Record Boards a few are chosen to receive their Colours. There is a maximum number for each team sport and the boys are those who show outstanding ability and sports- manship. Those having received this distinction are eligible to wear the special coloured crest and the Appleby Greyhound. In 1969 the School adopted the policy of awarding to a boy who had won his Colours for the first time, a Colours tie and the Colours " A " pin. The special col- oured crest is not often seen about and the Appleby Greyhound had been adopted by the First Team Rugger and is worn by them over their hearts, on their jerseys. With the building of the new Arena, the Hockey Record Board was moved there in 1970 and is located on the North wall of the entrance way. The Cricket Board is still located upon the wall on the top floor of the Calssroom Building. The Football Board is probably the most looked at Board as it is found on the wall of the main floor of the Classroom Building. In 1959 the Basketball Record Board started and is found on the East wall of the Gym. Also in the Gym is found the Gymnastics Board which started in 1922, but seems to have lost interest since 1966, when it has its last listing of names. With the new interest in gymnastics in the School , it is hoped that the Record Board will again list names of current School gymnasts. With the increased interest, over the last five years in Squash and Rugger, we have established two new Record Boards. The Squash Board is located upon the gallery wall, behind the courts and has its first listing in 1968-69. Rugger started listing names to its Board in 1971. Although the Rugger Record Board is not up yet, it is planned that it will be placed upon the wall, located outside the office of the Physical Education De- partment. With the newly developed interest in Rugger and with the high standards currently achieved, Colours have been awarded in this sport since 1971. The history of the awarding of Colours and of the Record Boards is an inter- esting one, and I personally hope that a high degree of achievement wUl continue to be required for these awards in the future. Thanks to all those who helped me in the digging up of background material for this history. Athletic Awards 1972-73 FOOTBALL RECORD BOARD A. B. Mann, Capt. D.G. Jennings. V. Capt. C. Robertson, V.

Editor ' s Closing Remarlcs The Argus is whatever people associated with Appleby care to make it. Many, many of those people have contributed to the yearbook and what you see is a collection of their efforts. We cannot name them all - poets, athletes, masters, artists, etc. , but we can only say a special word to those whose effort has been extraordinary. Two people in particular have made this edition of the Argus, Mr. Mrs. Landry. Mrs. Landry has typed every word that you see printed here, sometimes several times over. Mr. Landry has been given the misnomer of ' Staff Advisor ' , but should be more correctly termed Co-Editor. He has overseered the financial state of the Argus, laid out pages, written reports, proofread, and done in fact everything that a competent editor should under- take. Mrs. Pritchard was a great help in organizing our financial position too, and was always willing to give assistance. Of course it ' s no use having excellent money managers if they do not have any money to work with. Here, the advertising staff stepped in and their effort produced wonderful results. Our problem became not how to find the advertising to fill pages but how to find pages for the advertising ( we added sixteen pages to the Argus this year). Generous parents sent donations to the Argus totalling over $1200 and with the support of both of these groups the school ' s $500 subsidy was un- necessary, we were able to order an expensive cover for the book and still have a few hundred dollars left over for next year ' s Argus. Every year, there has been a cry for more pictures in the Argus. This year we answered such pleas by encouraging a very tireless group of photographers who at the outset lacked organization but throughout worked unceasingly. They developed and printed almost all of the hundreds of pictures they shot and if a complaint was raised about a photograph, they disappeared into the school darkroom to emerge with another copy, lighter, darker, cropped or in some way reformed. Here then is what all of these people have produced - The 1972-73 Argus, a book with a hundred editors. Bill Crosbie James McKenzie patrons!
