AWARD Mr. Bob Joseph, Inter-Collegiate Press representative, presents Buzz Green and Chris Merritt, 1974 Editors, and Mr. Landry, Argus advisor, with the I.C. P. award for the best yearbook among the Oakville Secondary Schools. To win this award again was indeed a source of pride to the staff, and the Argus wishes to thank its numerous contributors without whom a good yearbook could not have been produced. A The Headmaster ' s Message As I write a " message " this year I must admit that I do so feeling most encouraged. This is because, from the standpoint of spirit generally in the School and results achieved in so many areas, we are just completing a very happy and a highly produc- tive year. What has particularly pleased me has been the variety of activities in which there has been real success: our in- sistence on academic standards has borne fruit with twenty-one out of twenty-three (at the time of writing) receiving Early Ac- ceptances to University, and with one of these winning a large Scholarship to Harvard; on an overall basis our athletic results have been the best in our history at the first team level - in winning the League in Independent School competition (six Schools) in one sport and in coming second in three, with teams which not only trained very hard but also put a premium on sport- smanship and fair play; in drama our play won the ISAA Festival, and great interest has been developed in this pursuit; both the Operetta and the Cadet In- spection, which were held in the Spring, maintained very high standards; throughout the Junior School as well there has been displayed a willingness to work together and very real eagerness for the attainment of top results; and finally there has been the ex- citing development of our Nor- thern Campus. However, in all this, that which has encouraged me the most has been the en- thusiasm and spirit displayed in these areas by so many boys. For this I am most grateful to those dedicated Masters who give un- stintingly of their time to help the boys, to the prefects who have on balance led the student body with concern and responsibility, and to the boys themselves who have responded with enthusiasm and who have " pulled their weight " so well. Since it is new I must mention especially our Nor- thward Bound Programme. Our purpose in planning this was to enable groups of our boys to have the advantage of Outward Bound training, as a stimulating and rugged supplement to their normal programme. We have tried to include in their educational training activities which will help them: 1. to un- derstand the out-of-doors and to act responsibly in any given out- door situation; 2. to develop self- discipline and to train leadership ability; 3. to develop an abiding reverence for nature and for life itself; 4. to know the joy of com- peting with the best that is within oneself; 5. to become more robust physically and emotionally. We believe that not only will such activities fire the sense of adventure in our boys, but that also they will help to absorb the excess energies in a growing adolescent and thus ensure that he is involved in a total way with healthy pursuits. Young people will seek solutions to their problems through action and ad- venture - one way or another. It is important that the adventure they get caught up in is healthy and soul satisfying. In any event the results of our programme have been dramatic: the boys who have been involved have not only been very enthusiastic about it, but they have also learned im- portant lessons and grown as people; in addition the Ministry of Education, to whom we sub- mitted a brief on the programme - in order to get their permission to grant " credits " for it as part of the total curriculum, have not only endorsed it but they have done so most enthusiastically. They have called it " an in- novative and relevant experiment in modern education, and an example which hopefully many others will follow. " While we continue to stress as a primary purpose, of course, academic performance at all levels, I have referred in this " message " more to other areas, I know it is important to em- phasize high and exacting academic standards, solid sub- ject matter and intellectual discipline. However, at the same time, we must not forget the fun- damental job of education, which is that of nurturing human beings. A boy learns, French, Latin, Mathematics, History, Science; but he learns these sub- jects because in class and out of class someone gives him con- fidence when he is shy and dif- fident, or gives him courage when he falters, or spares not the rod when he needs it. This is education, necessary education, good education. We are trying to maintain at Ap- pleby not only a School but also a family, and one in which boys can grow. We seek to hold to academic standards which are exacting enough to require exer- tion of the best minds, and which extend each mind to its limits. But we also try to remember that the mind can function well only as the whole person grows and develops fully; and, even more important, we try to understand that a trained mind is valuable in the right sense only if it belongs to an honest and responsible lad. who is devoted to constructive and unselfish ends.

All teams have shown great spirit and I believe that there has been a good feeling in the School. This year has been good only because of this good feeling, and all the credit is due entirely to the boys and to the way in which they have ap- proached Appleby. The Prefects and Grade 13 have had a difficult job to do this year. We have had to make decisions that we did not want to make and that were hard to make. However, the boys made it much easier for us. There have been times when we have not seen eye to eye on certain matters, but I am sure you will realize that we did what we believed to be right. This year is over. What happens next year is up to the boys retur- ning. You can make it a success or a failure. If you realize the op- portunities that you have here, you will take advantage of them and thus enrich your years here. Appleby is more than school work, as our class knows. We have formed friendships with you boys and with the masters which will last forever. We have played hockey, baseball and bridge with the masters - this is only a small part of the fun that you know you can have here. What happens to the College in the future means a lot to the graduating class, but we know that with the present boys and masters, it can only get better. Mr. Larsen, masters and boys, we will never be able to properly ex- press our thanks for all you have done for us. Thank you, and good-bye. David Crosbie Head Boy Grade Thirteen Graduates JAY BURN " Rolla " was one of the more popular members of Grade 13, and he accomplished much in the six years he attended Appleby. In sports he has won the Victor Ludorum and has been very active in the Gymnastics Team for five years. In team sports he was a member of the First Squash Team, and a member of the Senior Football Team for two years, in his last season earning his Colours. In the spring term Jay was a sometime member of the Rugger Team, and pursued his excellent abilities around the track. In his scholastic endeavours. Jay was a steady student and he won the General Progress Prize in Grade 11. In other areas he was a major in the Cadet Corps and a responsible Prefect in Powell ' s House. In the past year, Jay has been a driving force behind the Monday Night Club and will no doubt open a branch office at the University of Guelph next year. KERRY CANTLE Harry has " bummed " around the College for four years now and in this time I ' m certain he has managed to encounter every physical injury possible. If it was not his knee or his head, it was his knee AND his head. " Transcendental " has a very good final year overall. He was Vice-Captain of Football, Hockey and Rugger, earning his Colours in all three sports. He was Head Prefect of Colley House, Lieutenant in charge of the Band, and a member of the Student Council for three years. Kerry is thinking of attending Carleton University and going into Political Science next year, but he may end up taking a year off to recuperate. One thing he will always be remembered for though is having sideburns longer than his legs. MICHAEL CHENG The first thing anyone notices about " M " are his shiny, white, " teetf " and his dazzling smile. In his three years here, Mike has maintained a high academic standard, earning his Gold Optimates this year. " M " has demonstrated his ability to help by taking on a role as Library Supervisor. Certainly our class would have lacked something without him. Though he is presently uncertain of his plans for next year, it is without doubt that he will readily make new friends wherever he goes. WINSTON CHUCK Even though Winston would rather sleep than attend class, his first and last year at Ap- pleby was very successful. Possessing the Oriental aptitude for math, it was possible for him to pursue his favourite pastime. Apart from sleeping Winston played on the First Rugger Team and was a prominent member of the First Swim Team. His outspoken views were often humourously to the point. Maybe next year the University of Western Ontario can keep him awake. DAVID CROSBIE This year the School showed a new spirit and enthusiasm, and much of the credit for this must go to our Head Boy, Dave Crosbie. " Newf " played Open Rugger and First Team Foot- ball for two years and was Head of Argus Advertising for a similar period of time. He main- tained a high level of academic achievement throughout his stay at Appleby, and, ac- cording to himself at least, was " a model of studiousness to be emulated by all " . (??). In other aspects of College life, Dave was a co-founder and regular member of the Monday Night Club, and a big moment in his life came when he was elected Captain of the Cross- country Ski Team. He was also known for his activities behind the scenes, particularly in Grade 10 and 11, but the thing that amazed everyone was that he never got caught! Now you might ask: " What is ' Newf, with all his talents, going to do next year? " The answer is simple - take a year off! Good luck, Dave! MARK FALCO In his. stay at Appleby " CHEWY " has managed to excel in the sports he played. After a slow start on the First Football Team last year, Mark, topped it all off this year and won his Colours. When he was called to fill the empty net on the First Hockey Team, Mark proved to everyone that he was very capable. His fast glove and his hard work and dedication were an insipration to all. This year Mark is looking to repeat his feat of last year by again winning the half-mile. Scholastically Mark performed admirably, showing a special flair for working out the answers to many seemingly unanswerable math questions. This ability will stand him in good stead next year when he tackles Engineering at Waterloo. " Careful you don ' t catch ' horns ' , Mark! " WILLIAM GRADY " Shady Grady " has been at Appleby since Grade 9. Right from the start he showed us his unique working habits and started his collection of " off-games " cards. This year Bill shocked us all by sitting on the bench of the First Football Team. When not visiting Oak- ville, he managed to put in a good show during class time. We will all remember him for his carefree attitude and wish him all the best in the future. - ' BUZZ GREEN There are not many boys who have gone through the School who have contributed as much to the College as Buzz has. Buzz has been a part of most activities offered here. In sports, he has played on the First Football Team for three years (being an Assistant Cap- tain and winning his Colours) while also being a keen (?) member of the First Cricket XI for the past two years, as well as a member of the First Hockey Team this past season. The School watched Buzz ' s double-somersault vault in disbelief as he performed on the Gym- nastics Team for five years. Throughout his years here he has been part of the stage crew for two Operettas, a member of The S.A.C. for two years and the Co-Editor of an award- winning Argus. Through sheer hard work Buzz managed to win not only Unsupervised Study but also Optimates since Grade 11. This past year he was appointed a Major in the Cadet Corps and a Prefect in Powell ' s House. We wish him well next year in Africa. SCOT HAWTHORNE " Chumly " arrived from England this year uncertain of what to expect but determined to have a good time. A fine physical specimen, he has made good use of his athletic talents and played on the First Football Team and Basketball Team, as well as on the Open Rugger Team. Scot was a hard worker and was always ready for a joke. He will always be remembered for that hot October afternoon when he ploughed through the offensive line so hard that he broke his helmet! We wish him all the best in the future at whatever Canadian Military College he attends. DEREK HODGE Derek has never astounded anybody with his mathematical skills and because of this he gets his nickname. " Delog " . During his three years at Appleby, however, Derek has never forgotten his studies, as was evident this year when he received his Gold Optimates. This year he was Prefect in Colley House, an avid member of the First Rugger Team, a superior defensive lineman on the Second Football Team, and a valuable asset to the First and Second Basketball Teams as their Manager. Derek hopes to attend Guelph next year and someday become a landscape architect. As long as Derek ' s career has nothing to do with Mathematics he will surely be a success in his endeavours. " ; Ha t JIM HOU In his five years in Oakville, Jim has earned and maintained the respect of all who have come to know him. A true scholar, J.C. has received awards for his linguistic abilities in French and Latin each June, as well as his Gold Optimates and a lengthy stay on the Un- supervised Study List. Jim was also an able Harrier. However, his greatest interests lay in the Fine Arts. These abilities have been readily displayed, and will be greatly missed in future, in the backdrops and sets for " The Mikado " , " The Gondoliers " and " Oliver! " which he designed and painted. His paintings were also unique and refreshing. Jim is also an ac- complished pianist. When time permitted, the College ' s number one Debussy fan was also a Walker House Prefect and Captain in the Cadet Corps Next year J.C. will be working towards a Bachelor of Architecture Degree at the Rhode Island School of Design. THOMAS HENKEL " Heem " has been at the College for five years and in that time he has shown us a few of his abilities by being Head Prefect of Walker House, President of the Student Activities Committee, Literary Editor of the Argus, Captain of the Colour Party, a member of both the First Swimming and Tennis Teams, and a notable sprinter. Scholastically, he has con- sistently maintained an average of 70% or better. The major disappointment in Tom ' s life at Appleby has been that because of his young age he was legally prevented from visiting the " Halton " . We wish him the very best of luck for the future. MICHEIL JENNINGS Mike has attended the School for five years. In athletics he played on the First Football and Basketball Teams for three years, and on the First Cricket XI for two. This year he was a prefect in Powell ' s House and for the fourth consecutive year was a Chapel Warden. Mike ' s most notable achievements, however, were on the Appleby stage. He was in three Operettas - for two as a member of the Chorus, and this year in the leading role of Koko in " The Mikado " . Along the same line, he was also a member of the Chapel Choir for two years. Mike has always been most eager to participate in School functions and we hope that he will remain in contact with Appleby and continue to contribute to it in the years to come. PERRY JOSEPH " Nippon " has been with us for five years and in all his accomplishments nothing has astounded us more than his talents on the guitar. Perry has been involved in many ac- tivities ranging from professional cadet boot polishing to becoming a successful pottery maker. He is well known in the School for his acting endeavours, particularly as Fagin in Appleby ' s production of " Oliver! " He has always been a steady student as well as an oc- casional member of the Unsupervised Study List. This year Perry was a Prefect in Colley House and a member of the First Hockey Team. His creative nature appears to make him destined for a career in either art or music. Whichever course he takes in life, we wish him all the best of luck. 13 WILSON LEUNG " Willy Baby " has been with us now for three years and in that time has adapted very well. In Grade 12 he received the Math and Chemistry awards and was consistently on the Un- supervised Study List. In Grade 13. through his endless efforts, Willy was awarded his Gold Optimates. It was a rare occasion when he didn ' t get 100% on a Math exam or test. In other areas Wilson was a member of the Soccer Team, Second Squash Team and a track and field " star " - it ' s no wonder he was the Grade 13 hockey star in the Masters ' game. What a stud! Willy ' s easy come, easy go nature, and good sense of humour will be missed by all his classmates, and we wish him all the best of luck next year at the University of Toronto. IAN MANN Since coming to Appleby four years ago, Ian has constantly kept his classmates on their toes with his subtle humour. In regards to athletics, he has spent four years on the Senior Soccer Team and two years on the First Cricket XI, earning his Colours in the latter. During the months when that " white stuff " was on the ground, this Bermudian was an avid member of the Squash League. Academically, Ian has been a good student, being on the Unsupervised Study List on occasion, and in Grade 11 he earned his Optimates, an honour that has unfortunately eluded him since then. Behind the scenes he was a key man in the production of decorations for numerous dances. Next year Ian plans to take a year off to work before returning to his studies. We wish him all the best. CHRISTOPHER MERRITT Chris has spent six full years at Appleby. He has been on the First Football Team for three years, record board for all three, a member of the First Hockey Team, and has been awar- ded his Colours in Cricket as being one of the key members of the First XI. Over the years Chris has been a responsible asset to the School particularly in his last year as Dorm Prefect in Powell ' s House, Head Chapel Warden and Commanding Officer of the Cadet Corps. He was Co-Editor of an award-winning Argus, and last year in Grade 12 he was the winner of the Lieutenant Governor ' s Silver Medal. Chris is often found in poor humour until the topic of conversation changes to Volkswagens, motorcycles, or the farm, and he has been known to spend his time on wrenches, spark plugs and oil filters rather than on fancy women and other " lighter pleasures " . Appleby will miss Chris a great deal and whatever he does in the future, we wish him all the best of luck. KEVIN McMURCHY In his three years away from Kitchener-Waterloo, Kevin has earned all the accolades of scholastic excellence: a library of volumes for academic achievement, Unsupervised Study, Gold Optimates, the Campbell English prize, the Edin Heward public speaking award, and on and on ... The third, and hopefully not last of the clan to attend Appleby was also active in First Team Football and Basketball, as well as Senior Rugger. Kevin has been in " The Gondoliers " , in charge of Fencing, a Lietutenant in the Cadet Corps, and President of a most successful Debating Society. Kevin won second place at the Ontario High School Debating Finals Tournament this year and first place at the McGill Debating Tournament last year. A fitting climax to this Powell ' s House Prefect ' s career was his recent acceptance at Harvard. JA :pV JAMES NAISH " Army " , our only poultry farmer from Mississauga, has been with us for five years. He has been quite active in athletics: he played for the First Hockey Team for three years, earned his Colours in that sport, and this year was team Captain; he also finally completed his first full football season without an injury as a member of the First Team. In the spring he played for the Open Rugger Team. His leadership qualities were evident also in his per- formance as a Prefect in Colley House and as CWO of the Cadet Corps. He was perhaps best known and liked for his down to earth nature and as an individual who was easy to get along with. Possible futures lie at Guelph or Cornell in the economic field; " Army " , we sincerely wish you all the best. ALEX PATERSON " Big Al " has been at Appleby for four years and has been involved in many aspects of our community life. He has been involved in every dramtic production since his arrival, and this year he was a Prefect in Walker House, a Lieutenant in the Cadet Corps and an of- fensive centre for the First Football Team as well. In the spring as for the past two years, °. represented the School on the First Tennis Team. His academic work this year, though not one of his favourite activities, was of good quality. Alex hopes to attend McGill Univer- sity to study History, and we wish him all the best. JOHN STANSELL In five years at Appleby John has thrown himself completely into the Dramatic Society. He appeared in the chorus of " The Gondoliers " and " Oliver! " , and this year undertook a lead role as PishTush in " The Mikado " . A regular member of the Unsupervised Study List, John was also a stalwart participant in the Choir, Lieutenant in charge of Cadet Stores, and a Day-Boy Prefect. Though not a competent athlete, his efforts in P.T. were always of a praise-worthy nature. It would be difficult to decide where his greatest interest lay - the basement phone, McDonald ' s, or St. Mildred ' s Lightbourne. John hopes to attend U.W.O. and complete a degree in Business Administration. ROLAND TO To-To has been at Appleby for only one year, but he seems to have adjusted to the Canadian way of life very well. Roland ' s academic standing has been admirable, with an average of 80%, and he has earned his Gold Optimates. Roland was the kind of person who would try anything once, and his contributions to the Second Football Team surprised many. He also represented Appleby on the Second Basketball Team and the First Cricket XI. When he arrived at Walker House, pool was as foreign to him as he was to us. He quickly adopted the game and was soon beating some of his occidental friends. He hopes to attend the University of Western Ontario next year to study Business. We wish him all the best in the future. L RICHARD WEBB Although this was only Richard ' s first year at the College, he has accomplished many things and made many friends. His leadership qualities were immediately recognized when he was made a Prefect in Colley House after the first half-term. Athletically, he earned his Colours in hockey, and in the fall and spring terms " Rebb " played on the Second Football Team and dabbed in Tennis. Next year he hopes to attend the University of Toronto and study Engineering. Grade Twelve Graduates TERRY BOURNE " Rudy " has been here for two and a half years. During this time he has applied himself fully to the Second Football, Hockey and Rugger Teams. He also made his mark in the Operetta Chrous for two years. " Rudy " could always be counted on to crack any tense moment with a quick one-liner. His unique sense of humour has gotten him out of more than one sticky situation. Rudy hopes to continue his education next year and get his Grade 13 credit. Best wishes for the future. TONY BRADDOCK Tony has had five good years at Appleby. During that time he has been involved in many activities. Last year Tony managed our student-operated Tuck-shop and this year, took over the position of Business Manager for the Argus. One gift of which he was particularly proud and which still amazes us was the way he " leaned on a cue " . Tony was our billiards Champion for 1973-74 and the smart money rides on him again this year. He was indeed our own " Minnesota Fats " . Tony was also one of the chorus members for this year ' s Operetta, " The Mikado " . Tony will be missed around the College as he is a one-in-a- million nice guy and we wish him nothing but success in the future. KEVIN JOHNSTON Kevin Johnston is a man with an original, one might almost say, unique mind. Few students at Appleby can have remained less affected by its schooling than Kevin and have emerged with such a direct, uncomplicated simplicity of nature. A broad smile, a healthy chuckle and a certain stubbornness are Kevin ' s hallmarks. A stalwart of the First Football Team and Second Cricket XI, Kevin has also been the honorary leader of the Bush League and is proud once to have been on " Supers " . As his yellow Cortina burns off into the dawn of life beyond Appleby, we raise our elbows in a gesture of fraternal good wishes. TIM LABRIE Tim, alias " Stretch " Labrie or " La Bean " as it is known in B.C.. has passed four tranquil years under the protective shade of the Apple. Noted for his enjoyment of extended weekend holidays, " Stretch " has contributed much to the College. A veteran of the Open Rugger Team and of the Second Hockey Team, Tim was also a loyal stalwart of the Dance Committee and " After Four " programme. His warm and gregarious nature earned him many friends - and drinking companions at the Riverside! Tim has ambitions towards acquiring a pilot ' s licence and then perhaps of following his father ' s footsteps into aviation. We wish him all the best for the future. PETER McALISTER " Mac " is a true Old Boy of the School, this being Pete ' s eighth and last year on the College grounds. During this time he has played for two years on the First Football Team where his outstanding play gained him his Colours. One year of Second Hockey and two years of First Rugger rounded off Pete ' s years here. When not busy in sports, he was in- volved with the Operetta. Here he spent two years in the Chorus and last year was a lead in " Oliver! " Pete was also a Sergeant in the Cadet Band. Mac hopes to attend Ryerson and we wish him the best of luck. ANDRE RACHMANINOFF " Rock " has been with us for four years. During this time he has maintained a constantly high academic standard and he has been a regular member of the Unsupervised Study List In the past, his size made him a valuable member of the School ' s football teams and track team. Due to numerous injuries, however, he has lately been less actively involved in athletics than he had hoped to be. He has also been a great help to the Dance Committee, weight room, and Bush Patrol. We wish him all the best in the future. WAYNE SIMS " Big things come in small packages " is a good phrase to illustrate " Slick ' s " contribution in his four years at Appleby. Wayne pulled off many surprising stunts, such as being Lieutenant in the Cadet Corps, Captain in his third year of First Cricket XI (Colours), Cap- tain in his fourth year of Squash (Colours), and also Colours for First Football. Wayne was also one of the key members of the Gymnastics Team, and during his four years, he managed to master every piece of apparatus. Furthermore, he kept up a steady pace, both in the classroom and with his friends at the " H " . A well-known Bermudian, he has adapted well to the Northern climate, and is hoping next year to study Marketing at Sheridan College. All of Appleby will miss his presence. 1 .- KURT SPONGBERG Although Kurt, our American bud, has only been here one year, he quickly made friends throughout the School. Kurt made his mark in our sports programme by playing on the Second Football Team but hockey was his main interest and he devoted himself com- pletely to the First Hockey Team. In the spring he played tennis, a sport he had just taken up. We wish Kurt, " Sidekick " , the best of luck next year at Bowling Green University. ROY TIMMINS Appleby College will not readily forget the distinctive career of one of its most vigourous and individualistically spirited students. Roy Timmins or " Schultz " as he is known to his in- timates in 12B, has during his six years at the College lined up a considerable record of achievements. Not only will he be remembered for his distinguished service on First Teams in Football, Squash, Cricket and Rugger, but few can cha llenge his record for not serving defaulters. Whether behind the wheel of his MG or being called to the bar - the Halton bar - Roy has always been controversial and respected figure at Appleby. We wish him all the best in the future.

Those Old Colours who returned and a host of keen players from the Under Sixteen ' s unbeaten team of the previous year returned resolved to change Appleby ' s losing ways. In the early practices it was obvious to the coaching staff that a spirit of enthusiasm and expectancy per- vaded the work-outs. The selec- tion of John Rosseel as Captain and Kerry Cantle and Buzz Green as Vice-Captains seemed a further step in the right direc- tion. Two weeks after school began, we played our first game, at home to Hillfield. We could do no wrong; it was a coach ' s dream! Every play we used succeeded, often for touchdowns; every play they used was stopped cold. The final score was 47-0 and the following boys shared in the scoring: two touchdowns for Cantle and one each for Burn, Slattery, Jamieson and Mike Jen- nings; Waterfield kicked one convert, a single and field goal; Burn ran a pair of two-point con- versions; Jamieson kicked for a single. In fairness to our op- ponents, they had a very " off " day as they were to prove later in the season. Looking back on this game, it was probably the worst thing that could have happened to us. Psychologically we thought we were world beaters; we soon found out otherwise! A week later we walked over to Perdue High School and had a quick game against their Seniors. The first half was ours thanks to some very sloppy ball handling by our opponents. Michael Rosseel scored two touchdowns and John Slattery one; Nick Waterfield kicked one convert and Slattery ran for a two point conversion. All this scoring occurred in the first half. In the second half Perdue came stor- ming back and scored 13 points. Only the final gun prevented them from scoring more. Final score: Appleby 21, Perdue H.S. 13. for two long runs, the former set- ting up a short touchdown plunge by Michael Rosseel, the latter being a major score in it- self. Waterfield kicked the con- vert for the last one. It was an odd win! Lakefield controlled the play for most of the contest but couldn ' t score. We literally stole the game away from them in the final minutes 19-9. On the Friday of the Thanksgiving weekend, we travelled to Trinity College School. We played the first half of the game as though we were still on the bus, allowing our op- ponents to build up a 28-0 lead. In the second half, we got un- packed somewhat and managed to do some scoring of our own. Jay Burn ran for two touch- downs, and Nick Waterfield kicked one convert and a field goal. Trinity ran hard and hit hard all afternoon. They were worthy victors by a score of 45-16. A week later against Upper Canada College we played poorly again. Jamieson kicked us into an early lead but it was soon all U.C.C. We couldn ' t seem to stop their running attack and some solid kicking by their pun- ter gave them good field position time and time again. Our offense sputtered all afternoon and we finally succumbed to a better team 34-4. Jamieson kicked a field goal for our other points. Our final two league games were played at home! Against St. An- drew ' s we managed an 11-11 tie. A significant change was made before this game; Neil Jamieson was given the quarterbacking assignment. This position was completely new to him but he performed quite creditable in his debut. He threw a long pass to John Rosseel for a major score, kicked for a single and ran with the ball himself for some im- portant yardage and first downs. This year it was our turn to travel to Lakefield. It was a pleasant, sunny, but windy day. As usual our opponents were tough and determined. In fact, they were soon ahead 9-0 by scoring an un- converted touchdown and a field goal in the first quarter. John Slattery finally broke loose, ran fifty yards to score but we failed to convert. The half time score was 9-6 when suddenly first John Slattery and then Jay Burn broke Waterfield continued his fine kicking by adding a field goal. Disappointingly, late in the game, a kick which might have won us the game went out of bounds: however, we were happy with the tie. Our game against Ridley was the most exciting of the season in spite of the final outcome. An early off-tackle run by Michael Rosseel. the convert and a sub- sequent field goal by Waterfield gave us an early 10-0 lead. Ridley came right back with a long bomb ' to make the score 10-7. In the second quarter, Jay Burn, Michael Rosseel and Jamieson combined on the old ' hot-potato ' play to score another touchdown. Waterfield converted. Defensive mistakes and some good Ridley running led to two converted touchdowns by our opponents as they went ahead 21-17. Early in the fourth quarter Jamieson led a march downfield which culminated in a short drive over the goal line by Kerry Cantle. Waterfield ' s convert made in 24- 21. Again our opponents came right back and with about five minutes remaining in the game, they scored another touchdown and convert to move ahead 28- 24. Not to be outdone, Jamieson and Cantle moved the team downfield, but on a third and goal to go on the eight yard line, we were stopped cold by a good defensive play. Ridley then ran out the clock. Final score: Ridley 28, Appleby 24. During the last week of the season we played two games. On the Wednesday, we lost to Hillfield 6-1 in Hamilton. Our op- ponents were much improved since our first meeting with them earlier in the season, and we were both hurting with injuries and feeling uninspired. However when a team gets the ball inside its opponent ' s 15 yard line three times and only scores one point, it has no one to blame but itself! On the last Saturday of the season, we finally beat the Old Boys for the first time in seven years. Neil Jamieson, back at quarterback after a game ' s ab- sence, scored a touchdown on a short plunge and kicked two 7 f converts; Kerry Cantle scored the other major on an exciting play, a long pass from Jamieson after a double reverse. Jim Chalkley (who else?) scored for the Old Boys. Final score: Ap- pleby 14, Old Boys 7. Two weeks later the 1974 football season ended with a stag dinner at the Town and Country Restaurant in Toronto. The general consensus of opinion by all present was that in spite of the mediocre 4-4-1 season, the spirit, cooperation and en- thusiasm amongst the players had been very high, and that the ubiquitous cry of " Wait till next year " did not seem so hollow or jaded.

From the coaches ' point of view, this year ' s team, with a 3 win- 7 loss record, was a drastic change following two undefeated seasons. However, considering the fact that there were many rookies on this team, the season on the whole was a satisfying one, though at times a little frustrating. One of our main problems was that, due to a multitude of in- juries, we seldom entered two consecutive games with the same offensive unit; thus we lacked consistency, and despite a reasonable defensive effort, we were not often able to score enough points to defeat our op- position. At the onset of the season our of- fensive backfield looked fairly strong, but with the loss of Jim Slattery to ' mono ' and Rick Webb to a knee injury, we began to sputter and stall. Ferron Bethell played particularly well on oc- casion, but it was impossible for one man to do it all - we simply hadn ' t enough depth to produce a well-balanced backfield. IHHi t r £ Quarterback Jim Wetmore, who is to be congratulated and thanked for the leadership that he displayed throughout the season, now realizes the frustrations endured by coaches on occasion. Without good blocking, otherwise good and successful plays do not work, and we were very weak in this respect. Paul Crosbie was the only offensive lineman with any experience, and this fact was a fearsome obstacle to good play execution. On defense, we were also plagued by injuries, evidenced by the fact that in ten games we had no less than four defensive captains! We were particularly vulnerable on the corners, since a variety of cornerbacks found it difficult indeed to withstand the blocking and shut off end sweeps. The Hodge brothers played particularly well at middle and right guard, as did Mike Cheney at a variety of line positions. Matthew Yustin, Brian Smith and Graham Kolle did a good job in the interior positions, and the latter, a rookie, showed perhaps the best progress on the defensive squad. We were ' bur- ned ' on occasion by missed pass coverages in the secondary, with obviously diastrous results. The so - called ' rubber band ' defense held on occasion, but at times it unfortunately snapped with an overwhelming ' twang ' . On final comment - football is a game that is not only played with muscle and fibre, but also with a certain amount of intelligence. Too often we were offside or did not give yards on a third down kick or clipped or GAVE yards on a kick-off or moved before the ball was snapped, etc., etc. These are things which should already be known by the time a lad plays football at this level. To sum up, although we had too few good moments and many trying times, everyone did his best, and in the long run this is of no slight importance. - " .: a id i a ; ' Mj£] w rn:»:n.l -?« jjfe •.-.-. aim mill v " 1 ' ' auv °. :l .

The nine win-one loss record was the product of enthusiastic team spirit and to a lesser extent, the coaching. At the season ' s start there were only nine veterans from last year. The season, in terms of per- sonnel was split in two due to the northern campus. Both groups moulded together well. The offence for the first half of the season was run by Mark Gaskin at quarterback. With Dan Sell and Maarten Bloemen at halfback and Paul Batemen and Paul Hubner at the flanker slots, the offensive unit amassed 134 points in 4 games. The offensive line of Bill Benson, Dune Roberts, offensive captain Rob Manbert, Mark Francis, Tom Gif- fin, George Stott and Chuck Stacey provided the blocking. Thirty-one touchdowns during the season attest to the hard work of the offensive line. The offense for the second half of the season wasn ' t any ' weak sister ' . Led by Dave Keates with •S «g s £ j35? as did the quality of their efforts. It ' s been said that a good football team must have a stingy defence. During the season the defence allowed a mere 63 points or one touchdown per game. Led by Captain Bruce Gibson, the defence utilized a 5-4-3 and 5-5-2 formation. The front four con- sisted of Mark Francis, George Stott, Al Halliday and Dave Suchanek. At the ends many a ' sweep ' fell prey to the head- hunting tactics of Keith Morrison and Peter Logan. The Linebackers consisting of Rob Manbert, and Bill Beasley at the c orners, Dan Yustin, Dave Gib- son, Stuart McGlaughlin and Don Green patrolling the interior and Graham Leggat, Leslie Connor and Chris Falco as defensive backs provided excellent ' pur- suit ' defence. Don Green and Dan Sell at the halfback slots, this offense produced 140 points in 4 games. With the exception of Dave Suchanek and Don Benson, the offensive line remained the same The skill of the ' specialty ' teams matched the quality of the of- fensive and defensive units. The combination of Graham Leggat ' s toe and Mark Wilson ' s snaps produced 33 points in converts and fieldgoals. Graham was deadly from the 35 yard line in. Keith Morrison provided the 3rd down punts with an average of 40 yards per kick. Special thanks must be given to Mr. Singer and Mr. Turner for moulding a group of ' Rookies ' into an efficient team. Additional thanks to Mr. Manbert and Mr. Landry for their help with the defence in preparation for the last game of the season. J.D.S. Record Top Scorers Hillfield Appleby 34 Dan Sell T.C.S.

Tall and thin, short and stout, some in Addidas and some in Kresge ' s $1.99 specials, hearts beating faster than was truly healthy and lungs sometimes clogged with the dissipations of a summer given over to pleasure, yet all in their own little ways anxious to prove the superiority of the will over mere flesh. The Harriers had arrived! During those golden autumn af- ternoons, regular as a well- tempered bowel, a hardy bunch of rippling young Apollos dedicated themselves to the pur- suit of excellence in a sport whose historical roots certainly extend as far back as the Battle of Marathon and probably to the time Adam first clasped eyes on Eve. While others might bedeck them- selves in all manner of armour and spend afternoons in ritualized self-slaughter, the Harriers opened themselves to Nature herself. Bush and plain, the rocky steep and the tumultuous stream; all became subject to those noble spirits. No gazelle was ever so graceful or retreating army so relentless. Of course the Harriers knew others scorned. " They run ' cos they ' re dumb, " was the hollow cry of those unknowing apostates. But the Harriers understood and accepted the challenging demands of their avocation - the need to know which way to run and the instinct to decide when to stop. In the later skill especially there was notable improvement during the season. Each afternoon the grand and historic facade of Colley House became the background for a moving scene as the Harriers rededicated themselves to their high ideals. Words of mutual en- couragement would be muttered nervously. " Can we go now Sir? " or " That ' s enough for today: I ' ve just run all the way from the gym. " Normally the Harriers would start with a dazzling display of calisthenic contortions. Following the principle that where in the human body there is a bone there should also be a joint, they stretched and tugged until they were as loose and lissome as a piece of well- worked bubble-gum. The rumour that in fact they were taking dancing lessons was quite unfounded and probably was the fruit of unbridled jealousy on the part of the 1st. Football Team. Opening exercises complete, the Harriers would then embark on extensive explorations of the Ap- pleby estates: from east to west and north to south. No corner was left undiscovered. Not even the reckless demolition of a bridge by the military could stem the inexorable tide of their ad- vance. Hannibal (and all his elephants) was never so for- midable. Sometimes the Harriers would travel afar and even scaled the daunting heights of Rattlesnake Point - although they preferred the coming down! If there was an disappointment in all this it must have been the lack of regular opportunities for competition. As at Appleby, so elsewhere, the numbers of those able to meet the challenging demands of cross-country run- ning remains small and com- petitive opportunities are lamen- tably few. Nevertheless, the Harriers did enjoy a splendidly organized meet at Brock University, a less agreeable one at a local high school and the first I.S.A.A. cross-country meet at Upper Canada College. Next year the Harriers themselves are deter- mined to host at least one meet at Appleby. The results of this year ' s mat- ches were wholly honourable if inconclusive. Everyone tried very hard and continued training until the end despite the absence of further competitions. They worked on their own times under the merciless eye of a small plastic stopwatch and an ec- centric gentleman in orange- coloured tracksuit. As they got fitter and fitter their minds turned naturally to those inspiring words of Lewis Caroll. " It takes all the running you can do, to stay in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that! " The following boys served in the Harriers: Jim Brown, Edward Dickens, Peter Duncan, Lyndon Fournier, James Hall-Broods, David Hou, Hugh Jackson, Craig Kingsley and Jonathan Morgan. M.C.

The team this year was perhaps one of the most promising that Appleby has had for some time. Talent and spirit quickly became apparent and the boys were ready and willing to put forth their best at all times. The lines were well-balanced and our defencemen were able to control the puck in our own end much better than in years past. Our forechecking system often left our opponents bewildered and frustrated, resulting in many scoring opportunities. Early in the season there always seemed to be one period (usually the first) in which we never really got going. This was always the period in which we were defeated, for we were equal to our opposition in the other two periods. S.A.C. seemed to be the only team that we felt definitely out-classed us, the other schools were all within our grasp. Despite the valiant efforts con- sistently displayed by the players, we never seemed to have that ' little bit of luck ' which would have so many times made the difference between winning and losing. The important thing is that everyone realized that the poten- tial was there, and that if we could put it all together, we would have a winning team. We proved this to ourselves in the game against Nichols in Buffalo. Nichols, a strong team, is always a threat to any of the teams in the ISAA. We started off slowly, allowing them to come off the ice after the first period with a 2-0 lead, but we were still confident that we could bounce back. When we returned to the ice for the second period, we played perhaps our best hockey of the season, scoring five unanswered goals and taking complete con- trol of the game. This coupled with a strong third period brought about in a final score of 8-4 in our favour, our most satisfying win of the year. We lost several other games which could have easily been victories: a 6-5 loss at St. Jerome ' s, a big, hard-hitting team with whom we certainly held our own; a well-matched, tough contest against Lakefield which we lost 4-3, and the pre- Christmas game against U.C.C., when we arrived with half a team, the rest suffering from illness or injury, which we lost to the even- tual champions by a 4-3 margin. On the latter occasion the team showed its true potential and the real desire that was present in the players. Our season ended on a high note with a trip to Lennoxville and three matches against B.C.S., Alexander Gait, and Tynsboro. In the first game against B.C.S. we managed a 4-0 win for the coach, a B.C.S. Old Boy. We could not manage a win in the second game against Alexander Gait, for although we outshot them 3-1, we succumed 4-1. The last game of the tour and the season was against Tynsboro, and the 12-1 score probably speaks for itself, for we were never in any great difficulties in that one. Perhaps the season was not as successful as it could have been, but the experience gained this year will be invaluable to next year ' s team. We would like in closing to thank Mr. Abbott for his patience and excellent coaching, and also to wish next year ' s team all the best of luck.

Hockey, unlike any other sport that we play at Appleby, requires the right mix between individual skill and team work. If the scale tips to one side or the other, I end up coaching a bunch of in- dividuals unsuccessfully, or a group who can ' t perform as in- dividuals. This year we reached the ultimate - a mixture of both. In the eleven years that I have been here, never have we achieved the balance that this year ' s team had. In goal, Steve Harrigan, who has the poise and style required to be a top-notch goalie, played with the steadiness required to be successful. After all, as someone said: " the puck stops here " . We were blessed with a steady defensive corps who constantly complemented one another ' s performance. Our youngest rookie, Paul Bateman, improved tremendously as the season wore on, especially in the passing department. His shot from the point was devastating. Perhaps our most gifted defen- ceman, Bill Beasley, was the mainstay of our troops at the blue line - it is always a pleasure to coach a lad who is willing to learn and execute what he has been told. Tim Labrie, the old vet and consistent puck carrier, provided us with many thrills with his rink -long rushes at maximum speed. Our Captain and hitter, John Rosseel, was our best ' break out ' man along with Bill. Many scoring opportunities were precipitated by lead passes from the above group. Many thanks must be given to our fifth defen- ceman, Peter McAlister, who faithfully came to every practice even though he knew he would see limited action in the games. We had an abundance of talent on the forward lines - we really had eleven forwards, any one of t whom could play in any spot in any particular game. Perhaps it ' s intuition or experience, I don ' t really know, but when I saw the Red line play together, I knew that the opposition would be in for trouble. Not very big but ex- ceedingly strong both physically and on their skates, this line provided us with the scoring punch that won many games. At left wing, Jim Slattery, the peren- nial 100%er, dug out the puck from the corners to set up his line-mates, or deeked the goalie clear out of his underwear. Not only was Jim the top goal scorer but he was also responsible for the terrific team spirit displayed by everyone. Our centre, Donald Green, proved to be one of the real scoring threats - for a Grade Nine lad I was more than pleased with his consistent effort. At right wing was Lang Moffat; although he didn ' t score as often as he would have liked, he set up his mates with extreme regularity; this, for a left-handed shot, is more difficult than can be imagined. Our Blue line was centered by the strongest wrist shot in the league, David Gibson, who sur- prised many a goaltender with his quick release. David was a most unselfish player who con- stantly passed to his line-mates, either Brian " Bird Call " Smith at right wing, who pirouetted his way towards the opponent ' s goal, often with success, or to Ross Large, his left wing, who possessed a booming slapshot that most goalies never saw. The Orange line was centered by an old timer with whom I am most familiar, Jim Wetmore, who moved from right wing to centre this year; I think that we were both pleased with the results. Our right wing, Bruce Peart, the ancient mariner, found the mark time and time again, breaking up many close games to our ad- vantage. The left wing, a diminuitive Singapore emigrant, Matthew Yustin, thrilled us all with his speed and accuracy. He must, however, learn to control his boisterous manner in the cor- ners. Barry Durant, one of our utility forwards, deserves much credit for doing his job when called upon, along with his partner, Ian McKenzie, with whom not many opponents fooled with retribution. Our only major injury was to John Keates, who un- fortunately broke his leg early in the season; had this not oc- curred, I ' m sure John would have been a leading scorer. Our back- up goaltender, Rudy Bourne, had to don the pads for three games due to an injury to Steve. Rudy did an adequate job and is to be congratulated. Ashley Kishino and Bruce Gib- son provided us with expert managerial assistance, a most thankless task but one that has to be done. In conclusion, I personally would like to thank the ' weight trainers ' for all those groans, our Captain, John Rosseel, for his leadership, but most of all the team mem- bers, for the best season in eleven years.

Charles Dickens (known to one and all as ' Chuck Baby ' ) said it best in the opening lines of " A Tale of Two Cities " : " It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of in- credulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everythi ng before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way ... " Such was the season of the mighty Thirds. We had our good times (U.C.C., 3-2, Lakefield, 5-4) and we had our bad (St. George ' s, 5-6; Crescent, 1-2). A .500 season (with 66 goals for, 65 against) is nothing to be ashamed of, yet one cannot but think back to those four games that we lost by one goal, usually due to our own errors. If we had only had a bit more depth ... we ' hung loose ' as they say, and defeat never rested heavily on our shoulders. Thank heavens for that! Our team was blessed with numerous ' characters ' who un- wittingly kept our spirits up, and to these individuals we are all thankful. Special thanks are due in par- ticular to Mark Gaskin, whose puck control in our own end was our salvation on many oc- casions; to Dan Hebert, Tom Lytle, Tom Giffin and Gus Parks, all veterans who helped greatly to add some balance to our young team; to rookies Mark Wilson, David Keates, Lyndon Fournier and Graham Stuart, whose scoring ability contributed to many of our victories; to David Suchanek, who overcame ' growing pains ' to become an ex- cedent defenceman, and to John Peart, our diminuitive Captain, for his aggressiveness and desire. On the whole, I think that we learned a few things, and that we enjoyed ourselves, and in the long run, this is what counts. I am quite aware that you all tried your best and I could ask for nothing more. To those of you who will be promoted to higher ranks in the future, you will be missed; to those who will return for another season with the Boise (Idaho) Blades ' , there is always next year; to one and all, a most sincere thank you for all the hard work you gave, in prac- tice and in games, and for a multitude of pleasant memories (I ' ll try to forget the others). One thing is certain, you had Class. One final note: many thanks on everyone ' s behalf to Frank Merrill, who was surely the best horse trainer ever to don the blades and manage a hockey team!

To II, Pendharker, Jennings II. Gall I. BACK ROW: Mr. Larsen, Cheney, McMurchy, Rosseel II, Hawthorne. Mr. Martin, Hodge I. As the 1974-75 season got under way, little hope was held for the First Basketball Team. Micheil Jennings, Para To and Milind Pendharker were the only veterans, and no new boys could be found to fill the vacancies. Af- ter the first game in which we were defeated 90-36 by defen- ding champion U.C.C., the forecast for the team seemed to have held true. However, we sub- sequently decided to disprove the predictions of disclaimers. With the addition of Nick Water- field after Christmas, we became a completely different squad. He filled the gap that we had and proved to be a tower of strength, being both an excellent reboun- der and play-maker. After our first post-Christmas game, when we defeated Ridley 62-48, we jelled as a team. Because we had no outstanding individual players we had to play as a unit, and we became a ' team ' in the truest sense of the word. Para To, at the guard position, played very well and as Vice- Captain, he provided the ex- perience and leadership that a young group like ours needed. Mike Jennings, in his last year at Appleby, played the best basket- ball of his career. He improved considerably over last year, and with his excellent defense and clutch shooting, he fit in very well. A lot must be said for Matt Gall ' s play this year. Coming from the Second team and in-experienced at the First team level, Matt star- ted at centre. His success was obvious as he scored 200 points. He improved greatly over the season and was quick to learn. Much of his success must be at- tributed to our coach, Mr. Martin, who helped Matt a great deal. Mike Rosseel, a guard, never stopped running, and he was the sparkplug of the team. His ex- cellent dribbling and ball- handling helped us out of many 50 tight situations. Mike was one of our four key players and we relied on him a great deal of the time to get us moving. Mike Cheney was a valuable ad- dition to this year ' s club. He was a good play-maker and an able ball-handler, and being a streak shooter, he came up with some incredible shooting exhibitions. Scot Hawthorne was perhaps our most aggressive player, and he helped Gall and Waterfield a great deal in the rebounding department. Vincent Stewart was another of our strong rebounders and he also played aggressively on offense - we are sorry that he will not be with us next year. Kevin McMurchy was injured early in the season and he un- fortunately played in only two games. The highlight of the season was the rematch with U.C.C., who had been undefeated to that point. With the entire school in a high state of excitement over " U.C.C. day " , the gym was packed for the first time all season. The game proved to be one of the most ex- citing sports events of the year at Appleby, as we battled U.C.C. to the end, and with just retribution, we defeated them 51-46. We ultimately finished second in the I.S.A.A. with a 7 win - 3 loss record. A very hearty thank you is due to our coach, Mr. Paul Martin, without whom the season could not have been such a success. We all look forward to playing for him next year, for we shall be losing only four players. In retrospect, it was indeed a very successful and thoroughly en- joyable season. M.

BACK ROW: Mr. Martin, Hou II, Rachmaninoff II, Morrison II. Davies. Lam, Hodge I. Appleby ' s Second Basketball Team for 1974-75 was no great success, with a disappointing 9 losses to 1 win. Many times when we seemed to have the game won, victory eluded us due to carelessness, mistakes, im- patience, lack of effort and sometimes simple bad luck. This team had no height advantage nor any great amount of ex- perience behind it, but regar- dless of this, we lost through our own errors on most occasions. We generally began our games too slowly and the opposition took full advantage of this to run up a lead which was in- surmountable later in the contest when we played better basket- ball. The team members were Steve Baiz, Mike Bierbrier, Bryan Davies, Tim French, Dave Hou, Herman Lam, Keith Morrison, Jean-Pierre Rachmaninoff, Roland To, Bruce Williams and Mark Van Tighem. Our starting line-up was Bier- brier, Davies, Morrison, Rach- maninoff and Van Tighem, all of whom gratefully thank the ' benchwarmers ' , especially Baiz, who came in many times to replace Davies or Tighem with great ability and skill. The entire team also wishes to thank its ever patient coach, Mr. Martin, who resolutely attended many ill-attended practices throughout the season. Although the season was an unsuccessful one from the point of view of games won, we nevertheless had a good deal of fun in trying and we are all looking forward to next year. M. Van Tighem II The Third Basketball Team FRONT ROW: Manifould, Grimes, McCarter, Duncan. BACK ROW: Mr. Richardson, Stewart II, Francis, Ellery, Stott. This year ' s Third Basketball Team did not experience many victories but gained valuable ex- perience throughout the season. It was felt that the experience would afford the team members many victories in the years to come. The team was coached by Mr. Richardson, who succeeded in instilling in our players many basic skills fundamental to the game of basketball. These skills ' were eagerly put to use by the team towards the end of the season. The team was led by a strong first string of which the Captain and Vice-Captain were a vital part. Most of the points were ac- cumulated by the centre, Peter Ellery, and by Kevin " Peru " Stewart. This duo was more com- monly known as the ' Peruvian Connection ' . Other first string members were M. Francis, P. Grimes and J. McCarter. In support of the first line were the following able and willing players: P. Duncan, P. Manifould, G. Stewart, G. Stott, J. VanTighem and F. Jennings. Leading Scorer: P. Ellery. Co- Captains: J. McCarter, P. Grimes. THE RECORD vs Ridley Lost 27-21 T.C.S. Lost 49-20 Crescent Won 24-17 S.A.C. Won 33-27 U.C.C.

BACK ROW: Mr. Larsen, Connor I, Bloemen II, Burke II, Chuck, Mr. Berriman. Last season the Appleby Swim- ming Club put out a First Team with a full card of fixtures. This season we finally came of age, putting out two full teams and competing on equal terms with everyone we met. We were able to establish a pat- tern of training this year which will more than meet our requirements henceforth. Aban- doning a rigid training schedule for a more flexible system based on timed interval repetitions, we were able to push our distance in training up to an average of 2,500 yards a session, while reducing the time taken to cover the distance. The record speaks for itself; we consistently won our matches at home but lost the away fixtures. We did not have one good meet away from home and consistently missed our turns; we started slowly and swam poorly in an un- familiar pool. Starts and turns will certainly receive top priority in our training programme next year. Team Captain John Wright trained and swam with his usual thoroughness and dedication; significantly, the matches we lost, with one exception, were the ones in which he was unable to compete. Assistant Captain Peter Bloemen spent the whole season working on Butterfly, and he reduced his time by 5.4 seconds over 50 yards. David Stuart continues to im- prove his times in both 50 and 100 yards Freestyle and holds the School record in both these events. Jonathan Morgan has been an invaluable asset to the team this season. A devotee of the coloured training goggle, his fine swimming in every stroke has made him first choice for IM, in which event he has excelled. Desmond and David Burke, Win- ston Chuck, Tom Henkel and Peter Thompson all swam well, winning many of their races and adding strength to the relay team. We shall miss Tom Henkel and Winston Chuck next season, their places will be hard to fill, but we are fortunate in retaining much of the strength of the team. J.B.

Grade Twelve Society Listening to some of the Grade 12 ' s complaining about this Society ( ' It is a waste of time ' - ' I have too much to do ' , etc..) it is very tempting to disband it, but upon hearing some of the questions asked and the discussions that take place, upon getting the feed-back from some of the Old Boys and also from the present ones, we can only be most grateful to the gen- tlemen who have given up some of their valuable time to share with us some of their thoughts about their professions. If a boy comes away from one of the meetings with only one idea he is the richer for it. It is becoming a tradition for Dr. John Piatt (father of John, Gr. 10) to open the season and set a high tone for the subsequent meetings. His talk is always followed by an invitation to tour St. Michaels Hospital. This in- vitation was gratefully accepted by 10 boys this year. John Bryant (father of Patrick, Gr. 6) author of ' You Too Can Get a Better Job ' , spoke about how to obtain a job and what employers look for in a candidate. Ian McCulloch (father of Alex, Gr. 10) spoke about Law as a profession. Two office rs of Central Com- mand gave us an insight of the Armed Froces as a source of numerous careers and educational opportunities. William Boughner, Sales Promotion Manager of Abitibi Pulp and Paper presented John Slattery with a model of the C.N. Tower for his inquiring mind. Mr. Carruthers of the Society of Professional Engineers made a return visit and showed a most interesting film on Engineering. Eon Sprott, a CBC producer gave a most interesting insight of the world of the theater and the numerous opportunities available in it. We are most grateful to these speakers for sharing their ex- periences with us. W.H. Winter Carnival 58 The Russia Trip I found the trip to Russia to be a very enjoyable one - although there were numerous occasions when everyone got totally an- noyed with the long waiting and bad organization - more so, it was a trip from which everyone gained a tremendous amount of experience and knowledge. Branksome Hall, St. Mildred ' s Lightbourn and U.T.S. proved to be very good company and we all got along very well. After a good rest from the long plane ride, the first thing we visited was Red Square and Lenin ' s tomb. The tomb, situated just outside the Kremlin walls and in the centre of Red Square, is opened for three hours a day and is visited by about 70,000 people per day! So one can imagine the long line up. Security was tight and silence is a must once the entrance to the tomb is approached. Beyond the tomb is St. Basil ' s cathedral - one of the most beautiful pieces of architecture today. With eight entirely different gold plated domes that glistened in the sun, St. Basil ' s proved to be a truly captivating spectacle. Other places of interest that we visited were: the Circus (which was on ice); the Kremlin and its ■I It fit ■ f prf " V t numerous cathedrals within and a general tour of the city. Shopping in Russia has got to be the most difficult thing to at- tempt. Every shop is perpetually packed with people. One af- ternoon, I had the " good fortune " of going shopping with a friend of mine. We walked into what is called the " GUM Store " (a huge department store in Red Square) in search of caviar. After fighting our way through the masses of bodies, we came to the right store. Then we discovered that in order to buy anything we had to get in line, which, incidently, was very long. All this trouble just to get into the store. After we got in, we went on a mad search for caviar. Needless to say we could not find what we wanted because nobody understood us. However, we did get across to a lady at one of the counters what we were looking for. But she gave us such a fierce " nyet " that we decided to be on our way. Leningrad was more modern compared to Moscow. But no matter where we went, we still saw the occasional lady sweeping the streets, shovelling snow and of course one cannot possibly forget the children who approached you with a wide smile and saying one of the few English words they know - " Gum? " - hoping to have it ex- changed for one of the many but- tons they had with them. Touring all the time got to be a wee bit boring but when we visited the Hermitage, perhaps the most well known museum in the world, our enthusiasm was certainly aroused. With its famous paintings, sculptures and antiques, the Hermitage turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. During our three day stay in Leningrad we visited the Czar ' s Summer Palace in Pushkin, St. Peter and Paul cathedrals, which used to be a prison during the revolution, and we saw the ballet " Swan Lake " . We returned to Moscow from Leningrad and stayed there for a day. During the trip, no matter how tough a day we went through, somehow everyone found at least a bit of energy to " mingle and socialize " in the evenings. Our trip back was pleasant and I have never seen so many weary faces than those that were on the trip, all eager to get home, all with an experience they will never forget. Chris Zahovskis 59 Debating This year has been an exciting year for debating, - a year of con- solidation, of progress, mistakes - but as an end result, debating has taken on a new dimension. Twenty-eight boys represented Appleby in no less than twenty- three inter-school debates and tournaments this year, the most number of debates Appleby boys have been involved in since the creation of the Debating Society. In inter-house debating no less than fifty-four boys debated in fif- teen informal but hopefully enlightening confrontations, plus we also took on the respon- sibility of sending three debaters to the Southern Ontario Model United Nations Assembly. Debating took on an added im- petus with the enthusiastic influx of 9E who were made aware of the fun of debating through the direction and leadership of Mrs. Dickens. Thank you Mrs. Dickens for your unremitting support and guiding hand. Futhermore this year, the Debating Society has instituted a new award which will be bestowed and presented for out- standing contributions to debating - a Debating Tie. Awards will be selected by the Society ' s co-ordinator in cooperation with previous holders of a debating tie. This year Debating Ties have been awarded to Kevin McMurchy, Ed Dickens, and Bryan Davies. It is hoped that the presentation of debating ties will further instill the desire to attain the highest concievable levels of achieve- ment in debating, as well as be- coming an Appleby tradition. During the past year Appleby de- baters have attained the status of being the debating team to beat. Our aggressiveness has not al- ways met with favour from the judges, but our major debates have been fun and that is above all the name of the game. It is ►©lUTl OKI . It IS Tfese VrYTO I hoped, in fact, it is imperative that Debating becomes a mjaor activity in our school, even more so than it already is. Debating throughout the province has grown, and is still growing at a fantastic rate. And as a result of this past year ' s success, Appleby has been requested to lead and co-ordinate debating in the new- ly formed Halton-Peel Region. We feel confident that this will further debating not only within our Society but within the pro- vince of Ontario as well. During the Winter and Spring Terms, Appleby was represented at the St. Clement ' s Tournament, the St. Andrew ' s College Tour- nament and the Regional Tour- nament at Lakefield. As a result Kevin McMurchy was selected to represent the Toronto region at the Provincial Finals, held this year at Trent University, in which 64 debaters took part. Kevin distinguished himself by retur- ning to Appleby as the second best debater in Ontario. But as always, it was the people involved that made debating a success. The names of Peter Taylor, Ian Cameron, Hartland Paterson, David Crosbie, Tom Henkel, Nick Waterfield, Sean 60 Baines, and Brad Thompson can- not be forgotten. They all argued forcefully in their own style, be it suave, humourous, sincere or boisterous. Our particular thanks go to Paul Van Tighem who on two occasions pulled us out of a bind at the very last moment. In fact, for the regional tournament he had a half an hour ' s notice. There are so many others, who participated in debating, and who took part as speakers, or timers who should be mentioned. I would particularly like to extend the thanks of the entire Debating Society to all those people from the Oakville area, as well as the masters ' wives, who gave up their evenings to judge sometimes boring, often amateur, but hopefully enlightening debaters. Mr. Humphreys ' per- formance as coach, organizer and judge, as well as his gentle guidance throughout the year spurred all members of the Society to do their best, and we are grateful for his help this year. As regards the future of debating all that needs to be said is that this writer is confident, and refuses to believe that all the ef- fort has been put into debating this year will be allowed to come to naught. Debating has carved out for itself a permanent and prominent position at Appleby this year, and there is unlimited potential for the success of debating at Appleby in years to come. Kevin W. McMurchy President 61 We started off our Debating calender winning against S.A.C., the ultimate victor of the Fulford Cup. Congratulations are due to Jim Wetmore (Joe ' s diabetic germ and peptic ulcer) as well as John Rosseel and John Slattery. This victory gave us the necessary lift for the following Fulford Debates, in which an error of judgement was made, as we lacked the necessary top- notch debaters needed to clinch each confrontation, which in one case we ended up losing very closely by as little as 8 points out of a possible 600. We finished off the Fulford round of debates on a high note, defeating T.C.S., following a most hectic journey, having battled the elements of wind, snow and sleet, which almost cost us the loss of Mr. Stott and three junior debaters in a ditch. The expertise required to argue Appleby to victory over Trinity College School was ably and enthusiastically provided by Kevin McMurchy, Melind Pen- dharker and Graham Leggat. All in all, despite the weather, we did have a pleasant evening and T.C.S. were wonderful hosts, put- ting us up for the night. Regar- ding future Fulford Cup debaters, things look extremely promising for next year as our present younger debaters gain much in maturity and experience. This past fall we sent two Grade 11 ' s, Bryan Davies and Ed Dickens, to McGill to participate in their tournament. Although our lads were debating against much more senior debators, they managed to do quite well. (Apart from the foregoing, they distinquished themselves by being the only registered guests at the Montreal Central YMCA in blue suits). One of the highlights, most certainly, of this year ' s debating was the sixth Annual Appleby College Invitational Co- ordinate Debating Tournament, in which sixteen schools, from as far as St. Charles College in Sud- bury, participated. During the af- ternoon, the resolution under heated debate was that, it is resolved that " This House en- dorces Bill 22 as enacted by the Government of Quebec. " When the first two rounds of debating were completed, all participants gathered in the John Guest Hall for the final debate which was competently and ex- pertly judged by Mr. A. Abbot, M.P. for Peel South, Mrs. Strucken, and Mr. B. Lee. When the smoke of the heated arguments cleared, Basil Gerol was declared the winner. The whole day, though sometimes hectic, was well rounded off with a delicious feast prepared by Hilda and her helpers. 82 Music We have had approximately 88 boys learning instruments, which is once again a rise from last year. With the help of Mr. Bridgewater (Woodwind and Brass), Mr. Mallin (Guitar), Mrs. McConnell and Mrs. Isherwood (Piano) and Miss Colebrand (Str ings), four new practice rooms, which make things easier, the department is well on its feet. The addition of four pianos makes the grand total of seven in the Music School. The nucleus of a Concert Band, under the guiding hand of Mr. Bridgewater, has been formed and we hope will blossom next year. The Autumn Term Informal Concert has solos by D. Hou (Flute); T. Abbott (Clarinet); G. Gudewill (Trombone); J. McCarter (Trum- pet); A. Gall and J. Hou (Piano). The choir sang " Nobody knows the trouble I have seen " , and the whole junior school sang " Swinging Samson " with their usual gusto. At the interval of the Inter-School Public Speaking Contest, J. Hou played some piano pieces of Debussy, and in the Summer Term the Oakville Symphony Orchestra came for an open rehearsal in the Gym- nasium when Tchaikovsky ' s Capriccio Italian was played. 63 Sp i 64 This year, with a wide choice of materials in Fine Art and Material Art, our students have been embracing creative experiences with a new and invigorating intensity. Aside from the value of the work produced, the experience of creation is in itself invaluable. Self-expression is the basic characteristic of creative activity. Through self-expression the in- dividual may clarify his relationship to his personal world. Artistic creation leads to greater emotional maturity and a new appreciation of human values. In addition, it provides the deep satisfaction that comes only with personal achievement. Our students are pleased to share this small, random selection of their work on these pages with you. 66 I 67 " Composition is the art of arranging the various elements at the painter ' s disposal for the ex- pression of his feelings.

He longs not for death, and yet it is there, And he is not grieved. He finds love with his own, And peace with the beauty Of nature. When he is gone, His seed will continue to grow in the land, For he planted it well, And taught his young To struggle, To accept, To live As he did. S. Roloff 12E Solem aspiciens fis caeruleus, color libertatis; ventos adloquens semper irasceris; luna noctu veste argentea te velat. Nee infixus ut solum nee liber ut aether: transitus es terrae auraeque. Ascribere unum modo nomen alium tibi possum: Pelagus. Jim C. Hou Grade 13 IMPRESSION Q Everyone has gone, brought with him his voice, laughter, and my misery. The halls are empty, the air freezes. Walking through the woods with no sound of footsteps or whisperings, with no shadow hanging in front or behind, there is no sound but the dialogue between the North Wind and the branches; nor is there the odor of human existence: only the fragrance of fresh pines. Although no hymn is sung, the recollection of chantings is heard in the mind. Quietness is you alone with yourself, and then perhaps, with nature too. Jim C. Hou Grade 13 PENSEE II n ' y a pas d ' art plus difficile que I ' art de vivre. Pour les autres arts et sciences, on peut trouver nombreux professeurs pour nous enseigner les verites fondamentales. Encore, personne ne peut me montrer comment vivre, sauf moi-meme. D ' un bout a I ' autre de la vie, il me faut continuer a apprendre a vivre; d ' une telle maniere que j ' ap- prendrai enfin a mourir. Jim G. Hou Grade 13 A Lighthouse Mystery The tiny figure was barely visible for the cascading waves which swirled around him in the water. Again and again he would sink down under the surface, but again and again he would rise back up. His pale face was all that was visible in the darkness of the night, and even that was sometimes obscured by his limp black hair. He was Will Rodgers, the night watchman of the luxury liner Overdraft which had just sunk hours before, after being struck by a tidal wave while cruising in the Mediterranean. He had been swimming for two or three hours in the direction of an unidentified light in the distance which he had sighted from the watch tower just before the ship went down. As far as he could tell, he was the only survivor on the ship, thanks to his isolated perch in the tower. He assumed that the others were either trapped inside the vessel or had been sucked down by the turbulence of the sinking ship, the latter of which fates he had narrowly escaped. As he got closer to the light, he could see that it seemed to blink on and off as a lighthouse does, but he could remember no land or markers on the chart for miles around. His body was now numb and fatigued. It was all he could do to cling to odd pieces of wreckage to keep himself buoyant. There were still several more hours un- til dawn when the rescue ships might arrive, if they too had not been demolished by the wave. He did not know if he could hold on much longer. He estimated the light to be less than a mile away, but that might as well have been infinity because he knew that he had neither the strength nor the will to swim on. Even- tually he closed his eyes, and lay motionless, with his arms and legs drooped over a piece of debris. His heart still beating but his mind was a blank. When he awoke, he found him- self on the beach of some deso- late island. Thousands of gulls were the only inhabitants of the island. There were the remains of old human dwellings scattered a- round a huge majestic light- house made of stone and tim- bers. Inside the lighthouse, the beams and original stairs had all long since rotted away. There was, however, a fairly new and sturdy ladder which stretched to the top of the tower where the old oil lamps had once hung to warn ships of the dangerous waters. Will decided to ascend the tower to investigate the view. On his arrival at the summit, he discovered to his astonishment that there were not old oil lamps in the tower, but a modern elec- tric generator with storage bat- teries and a light beam on a swivel. The apparatus was moun- ted on steel beams and cemen- ted to the sides of the tower. Ob- viously someone had been using the lighthouse as a beacon for signalling ships. Perhaps Will had stumbled upon a secret smuggling operation. The light had, however, directed him the night before to the only piece of land for miles around, and that he was thankful for. After having eaten a meal of boiled gulls ' eggs, he began to make a closer investigation of the island. He estimated the island to be only about an eighth of a mile in circumference. In a secluded part of the island he found an old over-turned clinker- built boat in which he hoped to soon escape to civilization. The following night he set off in the boat for the coast of Italy, af- ter having erected a makeshift sail out of some old cloth he found, and having taken on board a supply of gulls ' eggs. Several days later, tired, sun- burnt, and half-starved, he was rescued by a coast guard ship which was patrolling the area for survivors of the catastrophe. When he told them of his discovery on the island they only laughed at him and claimed that he had lost his marbles, for they knew that here was not an island nor a beacon for miles around the area he described to them. Will argued that he might have stumbled upon the heart of a huge smuggling operation, but they would not listen. On retur- ning to the location of the lighthouse several days later, the island was nowhere to be found. It was as if it had all been part of a dream. Years later as Will Rodgers sat eating his breakfast and reading the London Times, he noticed a head which read: " Another castaway claims to have discovered an un- charted island with an abandoned lighthouse in the waters near ... " J. Gudewill 11 A1 The House This short story, written as an English project, was based on Louis van Gastern ' s film, " The House " . This film has no dialogue and contains flash- backs depicting the history of an old house that is being demolished. Out of the fragments grows the mosaic of many lives. - Ed. The dull, dumb walls that make up a building do not make up a house, for a house is more than that. A house is a spirit, a mem- ber of the family just as the family is part of the house. As the family grows, the grey, lifeless rock, which is the house, takes on new colours and grows with the family. It shares the hap- piness of the growing family, the joy of a closely knit family. With the joy of a closely knit family the house gains strength. It shares the sadness of a mourning family and the evil of a crumbling family. With the sadness the house weeps, with the evil it crumbles until the living rocks are once again grey and lifeless rubble scattered on the ground. The dowry was not enough to make him rich but it was enough to build the house. Its architect, John du Point, was a man of his word and he had said that the house would be finished in time. With the last detail complete, the house lay still and dormant, ready to come alive on the wed- ding day. The master carried his wife over the threshold for the first time in what was hoped to be the beginning of a long, happy marriage. The first months were good months, as the two began to be one. With this, the house grew and was part of their lives, part of them. The house had a good future ahead of it. Things were really looking up, but like anything that goes up, it must come down. The first shadow was cast on the house ' s bright future when the wife was in Paris with her aunt who was sick with the fever. The maid was newly employed and lonely, as it was the first time that she had been away from her family. She therefore turned to the master for comfort. .The two were very content with their shady secret. No-one knew ex- cept for the master and the maid who felt no remorse; and the house, whose foundations weakened with every wink, every secret glance meant only for the other. So it went on. On her way back from Paris the wife met du Point. The subject was birds. Du Point was an ad- dicted bird watcher and taxider- mist. The wife had always had an interest in birds, so when du Point invited her to see his studio, she accepted readily. They came to the yellow- breasted woodpecker. " This " , he said, is very rare. In actual fact I saw one near your house about a month ago " . " Oh? " said the wife with interest. " I also saw another very pretty bird " . He looked right at her. " A very lonely bird " . His arm knocked the light switch down, and all was dark. Nine months later little Marie was born ... a bastard. The wife could not be sure, and neither could the architect, but the house knew, the house felt it, every beam, every brick loosened its hold on its neigh- bour. Yes, the house knew. The party was going well, everyone had enough to eat and drink, especially drink, and it was going to get better. Everyone who was someone was there. Marie could hear it from her room; it seemed like such fun and she wished she could go, but her mother had been very stern on the subject. " Sixteen year olds do not mingle with adults " . And that had been that. She never did get along with her mother, or her father at that, the only one with any feelings towards her, it seemed, was du Point. The master staggered out into the garden and collapsed into a lawn chair. He poured himself another drink and raised it to his lips. Suddenly his fingers fell open and the glass fell to the hard stone below. He was sud- denly sober, all too sober for his liking. He got up and walked into the woods, for he had a lot of thinking to do. The deeper into the woods he got, the more sounds from the house faded, but not the picture of the two shadows embracing in the win- dow, the eye of the house, for it was burnt indelibly in his mind. The days went quickly after that, nothing seemed to matter any more, the house was crumbling. What happened after that can only be put down as a miracle of types. The wife complained of a stomach ache and retired to bed. She died soon after. The coroner ' s verdict was that she had died of food poisoning. This might not have seemed good for the house but in the long run it was. At the time of the reading of the wife ' s last will and testament Marie met a young lawyer who had just joined the family solicitor ' s firm. As the days progressed they fell deeply in love and were married. Not long afterwards, the master died of remorse, or perhaps guilt? The house then passed to Marie and her husband. It would seem as though the house had had a last minute reprieve, but it was only to be temporary one. Just after their son ' s fourth bir- thday, Germany moved into France. With this the house forgot all the good times and began to crumble for the last time. Spirits were low in France and the family was no exception. The end really came when one morning a smartly dressed Ger- man officer marched up the walkway and rang the bell; still no answer. The officer gave up and walked in. He found Marie in her husband ' s arms. The officer saluted and held out his hand politely, but they did not move. " I have an order to take this house as District Headquarters " , he said in remarkably good French. The days that followed were hell. The Germans became less and less polite until one evening the new master and the officer got into a flaming row and began to fight. The next morning they took him out to the woods. The house remembered the first time the old master had carried his wife over the threshold. They stopped at the old wall. The house remembered the maid who was now employed in a munitions factory in town. His hands and feet were tied. The house remembered. The order was given and all the men raised their rifles. The house remembered the evening of the party. " Fire! " said the officer. The house remembered the second marriage. The men pulled back the triggers in one move. The house remem- bered the young boy ' s birth. Two nights later there was a tinkling of glass and then an ex- plosion. The officer had paid for the death of the house with his own life. For the second time in three da ys they stood a person against the wall. Again the order was given and Marie fell to the ground, a heap of lifeless cells; but the house no longer remembered. It had fallen to the ground, lifeless, grey stone. It had been a double execution. R.

" S. Roloff 12 E THE BLIZZARD My family was a poor, humble Scottish mining family who lived on the banks of Loch na Nigheadaireachd, a wee loch. We lived in a sturdy, old cedar house which was built by my great-grandfather when he was fighting the Campbells. It was the winter in the year of Our Lord 1859 when a fierce blizzard hit our house. Father was out gathering sap from the maple trees and I was in the house helping mother with the churning. At suppertime father had not come back; suddenly, the wind screamed and a massive white blanket of snow fell on the house. The wind played a dread- ful tune of high notes and low moans. It was so strong that it made the walls shake. I spent my time looking out the window to see if I could find father; sometimes I saw blurry images but they turned out to be trees. That night I had awful thoughts about my father; he was standing beside a haystack, frozen and hunger struck. I could bear it no longer: I put on my coat and muf- fler and hurried out. The wind pricked my body like ice picks but I went on. I tripped over something, and there on the ground lay my father, dead. A. Krempulec 7A THERE The days become eternity in a land Where the frailties of man Are yet Unknown. The Goodness of God has kept it As virgin as The unchartered corners Of the universe. Within it, existence and non- existence Rule side-by-side in A mystical domain. This is the birthplace of Stars, and the pyre For their fiery ashes. This is nowhere, And yet, Everywhere, In a universe where The finite is impossible. This is a creation Of the mind, And a reality more true Than the Known.

HOW I STROVE TO WIN THE INTERMEDIATE CROSS-COUNTRY RACE The race I am going to write about was the race of my life: I don ' t think I will ever win a race like that again. It was approximately two miles of ups and downs and took place on what was really a perfect day for running, a cool Monday afternoon in the second week of April. A breeze was blowing gently that made it even cooler. The sun shone but clouds constantly kept on blocking out its warming rays. Even though the day was perfect. I was in no shape to run. I hadn ' t warmed up or prepared myself for this " hoping-to-win " race. Anyhow, I was going to accept the consequences and try my best. Trying my best was exactly what I did. We had some 60 or 70-odd guys running this race. Ned Larsen blew the whistle and everyone took off. I was so nervous I didn ' t even hear the whistle blow. Everyone had left before me. That really started the race off poorly but those nervous tensions flew away and I was off on the race of my life to victory. But. that was two miles off and I had blown the start through nerves. However, after run- ning the length of two football fields I felt great again. I was in first place and remembered what Coach Bernman told me in swimming: " Peter, if you start off in first place you can keep yourself in first place. " I did just that, but the cost was a great deal of pain. Coach Berriman ' s advice forgot to in- clude that you must push beyond your own limits. Even before half way through the first lap I found Mark Francis pushing me harder and by the end of that lap pain shot through the right side of my stomach and my throat hurt whenever I took a breath. Besides the pain I had to fight against the devil inside my body. At the start of my second lap the devil seemed to have control. The pain was unbearable, like having a thousand spikes thrust into my sides and throat. The devil was tempting me to fake a passout or else simply to let Mark Francis pass me. But somewhere else inside me an angel was telling me to push harder and harder. Strive to win for there is a reward for all this. By the time I got past the main gate the pain was so bad I was going to fake a passout but just then, suddenly, the angel came to power and the pain was gone. I felt like a new man and even more determined to win. I pushed onwards with Mark Francis right beside me and so I pushed harder to keep ahead. The devil was starting to come back again but the good angel knew her job and kept his power to a minimum. I began to smell victory as I pulled into my final sprint with Francis close behind. My legs carried me so fast I managed t o reach the finish ahead of him but only by a second. I had really pushed to my limits and taken 10 seconds off the record. Then the angel left me to be criticized and punished by the devil. By golly! Did I ever feel pain. But that left after about 15 minutes and I felt good. I had won the race of my life. Probably I will never win a race like that again as long as I live. P. Thompson, 10A I Abends dann beim Apres-ski Sind sich alle klar Dass so schon wie heut es nie Am Mont Orford war. T.

Cheney 11 A1 SELECTION If death had been a greater joy And seemed eternal bliss Then would the Man who took the world Indeed have come to this? UPON A SKULL An eternal grin spreads Upon your ivory-hewn visage, Your hollow eyes tell much, Yet they tell nothing. You speak no words, And yet you speak incessantly. Men shudder at your sight, But they too shall some day Dream in darkness. How many thoughts have Passed through your Darkened mind? Time has removed your flesh And has left you With your dreams. For dreams die only in those Who never wished to remember. His battles rage, His wartime games Have taken up his soul, To save the lives of gloried few He ' d risk a gory toll. The thought of death just means the end Of life on earth: sad fate .... To think that man is not immune, That death cares not what ' s great. And what is small in life, But strikes with even fist At he who deemed to rule, And that lost in the mist Of glory at his heels. S. Roloff 12E If only I had known you, If only I could see What your eyes have seen, The places you have travelled, And the people you have known. If only I could feel What your heart once felt, The deepest sorrows And countless joys, The loves and the pain. Some day I too shall join The realms in which you dwell, And with unseeing eyes and A silenced tongue, Shall live a thousand Memories. D. Hodge, Grade 13 THE BLACKSMITH His muscles flay the musty air, A hammer pounds the burning steel. So it was; they found him there Unchanged, unmoved, and some could feel Compassion for his strength of mind, Or pity for his simple trust Which put its faith in womankind, And lost the object of its lust His wife had left him for a night To drink and seek a stranger ' s charm. His fury with revengeful might Had done the stranger final harm. So now the law, regretful yet Uncoiled the noose, and hung the man; His face still bore the heavy set Of one who ceased to understand The why, the wherefore of a life And treasures lost in honest strife. S. Roloff 12E CREATION MORNING A morning by a small lake Is truly a peaceful time of day. You watch the water Sparkle and glitter, As a gentle summer breeze Tickles the placid surface, Causing small, lazy Ripples of water to lap On the pebbly shore. As you gaze into the misty depths Of the silvery water, You think about life Awakening below the surface. Somewhere along the wooded shore The distinctive song of a single crow Breaks the morning ' s stillness And beautiful quietness. Then, two red squirrels Converse freely, somewhere In the deep green wood. Two sparrows playfully Swoop at each other, Silhouetted by the gentle, blue sky, While the cry of a faraway loon Pierces the silence. All the animals are now awake; It is day. G.

Sketch and ' text b Sr. floloff 12E UNTITLED An unexpected jolt interrupted the beating rhythm on the tracks and he arose again from his light dozing. Yawning, he let out a satisfied grunt as he re-arranged his bulk on the luxurious seat of the train. Placing his feet on the unoccupied opposite seat, he gazed languidly out the window. Dingy houses rolled by, stacked together like kin- dling wood. In front of each was the same token lawn, nearly bare of grass. The same two-storied houses with clothes-lines, broken windows, rotting wood, unsmiling, dirty children, litter and garbage, all covered with a layer of dust which seemed per- manent, passed across his sight. Different looks came from infants running around in tatters and bent over mothers labouring over laundry in the yards. They all stopped to look up at the passing train. As the train passed into the darkness of a tunnel, he stretched out and tried to sleep. M. Rosseel 11E 79 ADVENTURE IN THE STRATOSPHERE It was 1328 hours, I was up at 40,000 feet in my Spitfire IV, doing my routine patrol. With a faint crackle on the radio, the controller ' s voice was coming in: " Watch out for a Jerry patrolling somewhere in your area. " I tightened the straps and lowered the seat. With a tingly feeling in my fingers, I released the safety catch from the guns. Up at this altitude, the cold was really frightening, and if it wasn ' t for the pressurized cabin and oxygen, I probably would have frozen. Then I saw him: he was about two miles distant and ap- proaching rapidly. My engine was pulling beautifully and the huge wings bit into the Stratosphere with power. I closed in on him; to my surprise it was a Messerschmitt 1096, equipped with two fat auxiliary tanks under the wings. He shone like a newly minted penny and was camouflaged pale-grey above and sky-blue below. When he saw me, he banked steeply, rolled gently over on his back and dived vertically. Without hesitation I followed him. The Hun made good use of his GM-1 booster and kept his lead. At 27,000 feet my airspeed in- dicator showed my speed at 600 MPH. We still went on down, 15,000 feet, 10,000 feet, and then I fired, just a short burst. The Me 1096 tore in half like tissue paper and then exploded like a grenade. One wing flew off to one side, the engine and half the fuselage went on falling like a torpedo, while debris fluttered in every direction. One of the tanks went spiralling down, leaving behind a trail of burning petrol vapour. At 8,000 feet I straightened out and then landed at base. It was just another mission. D. Tasi 7A BEETHOVEN ' S FIFTH SYMPHONY The warning bell sounds and the whispering conversation, squeaking of chairs and the shuf- fling of feet die down to a hush, tense expectancy. This is the final performance, the one that must be perfect from beginning to end. Eighty-four shirt-sleeved musicians raise their in- struments, softly rechecking their tuning for the fifteenth time, and watch the conductor ' s baton rise and hang poised in readiness. Finally, silence settles over the stage of Boston ' s famed Symphony Hall. Then a red light silently flicks on, the maestro ' s baton is waved and the entire or- chestra plunges into the opening " Victory V " of Beethoven ' s Fifth Symphony. Flutists blow and violinists bow, the percussionist beats his kettle drums and waves of rich sound spread out through the hall into the balconies and far corner seats. The audience applauds the opening notes. Harps play high, delicate tunes in the background, flutes sharpen the tune and the tuba bellows low base notes. The climax almost shatters the windows and the loudness deafens the maestro when it reveals Beethoven ' s tem- per. Suddenly the music stops and clapping hands applaud the or- chestra and the maestro. The applauding continues while the musicians file off the stage. As it was before, so it is again: the shuffling of feet, the squeaking of chairs and the whispering of conversation. M. Sutherland 8B The John Bell Chapel This year proved to be one of in- novation within the chapel. The weekly sermon was often replaced by some other ex- pression of worship. Choral Eucharists, choral evensongs with visiting choirs, piano and organ recitals and totally student-conducted services were all a part of making the chapel a centre of activity on campus. The three visiting choirs in- troduced the students to music and choir standard enjoyed elsewhere. The highlight of the year was the visit in June of the choir of St. Simon-the-Apostle, noted for their many public ap- pearances and recordings. The introduction of Sunday ser- vices planned and conducted en- tirely by the students is un- doubtedly with us to stay. Each senior school house had one ser- vice to plan and organize during the year. By the third term, the potential had been discovered and a most thought provoking and moving conducted by Powell ' s House. The piano recital given by Mr. Leslie Mackett will long be remembered. His performance drew enthusiastic comments from those usually critical of ar- tistic endeavours and showed that the expression of such talent does indeed have a place in a worship setting. The chapel offerings were greatly increased and were set aside for the Tibetan Refugee Hospital in Mundgod, India. The school was able to relate to this project through the slide presen- tation given by Mr. Pullen in January and through the knowledge that one of the 1974 graduates spent some time there during the winter term. 81 WEDDINGS IN THE CHAPEL: July 6, 1974 - Ross James Bell, Jr. and Susan Roberts.

The Headmaster introduced the speakers and the judges, all Ap- pleby Old Boys, Mr. R. Paterson, Mr. C. Willis and Mr. J. Morris, and the contest began. Jay Burn led off, speaking about " Mr. Harry Houdini " , the famed escape artist. Jay revealed to us many of Houdini ' s tricks, such as escaping from a lock that had no key, and how he was able to hide his tools while being searched before attempting an escape. He had learned to swallow his tools and to regurgitate them to free himself. Houdini was truly an amazing man. " The Grestest Hunt in the World " was the topic of David Crosbie ' s speech, in which he tried to per- suade us mainlanders that the Newfoundland seal hunt is not inhumane and is in fact necessary to the fishing industry. The next speaker, Tom Henkel, spoke about " The Desert Monarch " , King Faisal. Tom pointed out that Faisal was not simply a monarch interested in gaining wealth but one who was deeply devoted to his people. Tom ' s revelation that Faisal ' s brother was the father of 106 children caused a considerable stir among his listeners! Jim Hou spoke on " The Existence of Doubting, Thinking and Being " . Jim explained that all great men doubted at first, then they reflected and then ' came into being ' . His speecli was quite intellectual in nature and forced many of us to think. Chris Merritt ' s speech, " Are They Necessary? " , about rules at Ap- pleby, was of immediate interest to the audience. Chris pointed out that if many of the rules are considered silly and unnecessary are so tough to live with, then life after Appleby will be than much simpler! Kevin McMurchy spoke last and he was the eventual winner. His topic was " Dominoes - A Game or a Theory? " Kevin spoke of Communism spreading all over the world and of its challenge to the democratic Free World. A fight between these systems would be the ' last domino ' , and would perhaps crush us all. This speech was relevant to the situation on this planet and definitely made us think about our future on this earth. While the judges retired to make their decision, Jim Hou en- tertained the audience by playing two pieces by Claude Debussy, as well as " Clair de Lune " and Gallway ' s " Cake- Walk " . For an encore he played one of his own compositions en- titled " Omny " , for which he received a standing ovation. Jim ' s concert rounded out a very enjoyable evening. E.H. Appleby Presents " The Mikado " The presence of the large, en- thusiastic audience attending the final production of THE MIKADO provided something of a keynote to the production. A sense of warmth and anticipatory excitement filled what must be a large, cold gymnasium, yet, within minutes, the conductor ' s baton became a magic wand, and the area was transformed into a theatre. On stage, the cast and chorus alike caught the highly infectious, supportive glow of the onlookers and paced their production with spirit and obvious enjoyment. As in any production, certain per- formances were outstanding; Chris Zahovskis, besides having been gifted with a lovely voice, also created a Nanki-Poo of great charm, with just the right touch of light romanticism. As Yum-Yum, Jennifer Keay found the difficult balance between the romantic and the witty in both her singing and acting roles. The more difficult accomplishment, however, must be accredited to Heather Dorion, an obviously at- tractive young lady, playing the unattractive, elderly Katisha. Not only was her voice lovely, but she possesses great authority for one so young. In addition, John Manning was quite effective as Mikado, both physically, and vocally, and Kim Bates and Nancy Yewen as the other two wards of Ko-Ko were charming and decorative. In the more mature and more dif- ficult character parts, Micheil Jennings, Alasdair Halliday, and John Stansell did not quite measure up. Granted the dif- ficulty of assuming age, still, these young performers might have worked harder at acquiring physical and vocal maturity, and those individual characteristics of both which would have enhan- ced the comedy and the satire at the same time. Although most of the makeup was very well done, these three could have used the addition of both age and character elements. As Pooh-Bah, however, Alasdair Halliday ' s natural hauteur pervaded, and his Lord High Everything Else did come through. Considerable credit must go to director Michael W. DesRoches for his highly effective staging. Moving a huge cast vertically because of limitations of stage width is an Herculean task, and Mr. DesRoches succeeded ad- mirably. He kept the Chorus of Nobles and School-Girls alive and interesting and moved the principals in a most engaging manner, but a lighter form of elevations might have expedited the problem. Musically, Anthony Royse is to be congratulated, along with the members of a fine orchestra, and a special bow to the East (in deference to the Mikado!) to Marie Harris as Associate Director of Music. Both male and female choruses obviously had been well trained and provided very strong sup- port. It is customary to pay homage to directors, actors, and musical directors, but a production of these dimensions is impossible to achieve without the very dedicated work of dozens of behind-scenes people ... for costumes, makeup, props, sets, crew, and for those who work on box-office, publicity, house- management, etc. All of these " behind-the-scenes " people must feel that same sense of pride and accomplishment as their colleagues on stage. Added to the success of this production commune was the equally sup- portive, prideful attitude of Head- Master, faculty mem bers, staff, parents and friends. It was that spirit which permeated the at- mosphere and made the evening a complete delight. Nathalie Donnet Emmett Director of Drama McMaster University Northern Campus Northward Bound The last thing our country needs is a dull, unquestioning con- formity on the part of our young people. According to what I have read, there has been a definite change in the attitude of today ' s students population. They are more conservative and traditional in their outlook and behavior. Does this mean a return to the apathy and neutralism that characterized past generations of college students and young people? Have they decided to turn their backs on social and humanitarian progress? I think what they are rejecting are the revolutionary tactics that en- dangered the very moral fibre of our society. Our young people must be willing to change - if and when the proponents of change go about it in the right way - by working within the system rather than attacking it from outside. What we are after is a kind of young person who wonders, who doubts, who questions and who tries hard to find new and better answers to the old nagging problems. As inferred from the above, many people nowadays are questioning our society in a profound way. The " existential " philosophy, the " hippie " movement (an extension or adap- tation of existentialism) and similar undercurrents are seeking to reject parts of the foundation of the social value structure. The disclaimer philosophers may take the position that striving entails gouging someone else, that progress is a delusion, that the ' here and now ' is the thing, etc. Whether they represent a negation or affirmation, whether they are short-sighted or far- sighted, and whether they are superifical or profound are questions which do not concern us. What does concern us and what we need to be aware of is that they run contrary to the inherent assumptions of Nor- thward Bound that striving is good. The essence of human nature is to challenge oneself with something and we must be aware of our obligation. More and more, students are saying, in a variety of confused and sometimes incoherent ways, " no, I don ' t want to strive, I don ' t agree that my life ought to follow a continuum of improvement and goal-oriented struggling " , and many peripheral arguments are advanced which may give clues to this underlying belief: " I don ' t want to achieve " ; " I just want to do my thing " ; " I just want to ex- perience (feel, be, exist, go with the flow, do it .... " ) With the above thoughts in mind, perhaps I can now set out more clearly what the goals of Appleby Northward Bound are. Northward Bound is an experience in living, pure and simple. We want the in- dividual to develop inner resour- ces through a programme of physical and mental challenge involving the out-of-doors, both as a member of a team effort and alone. The mastery of em- ployable skills is an adjunct to this process of heightened self- confidence. Northward Bound asks a lot - and gives a lot to make the asking justifiable. We ask that each student try to live up to his potential. The ex- pectations of each student are in line with his abilities. We then have faith; we give respect but do not demand it, but rather earn it. We respect the dignity of man and present a life style. We then, hopefully, teach by enquiry. Once having established the right student-instructor relation- ship based upon respect there is really no limit to what can be learned and absorbed together. When I say " respect " , it is equally deserved by the weakest as well as the strongest, and mutual dependence must be used. Success in some small way is of absolute necessity for each student, each day. The Temagami environment is simple, real and uncomplicated. Challenges presented by that en- vironment are basic and un- compromising, not sham, no double standards. Everyone must react in the same way. What we seek in the end is turning students on to themselves, to their strengths and weaknesses, to the values of courage and striving, of co-operation and sen- sible self-denial, of accepting challenge an d doing one ' s beat. To facilitate instruction and the daily running of the Northern Campus, the boys are divided into patrols of seven; each patrol is then assigned one instructor. When in camp, the patrols are required to do " duty patrol days " . This involves the complete process of maintaining the Island for that day. They prepare all meals, set and wait on tables, clean up after meals, maintain the two lodges and boathouse, and complete other functions in order to keep the camp running effectively. Once their activities are completed, all patrols in camp split the rest of the day bet- ween work and improvement projects and environmental studies. Naturally, when patrols are out of camp, they are fully oc- cupied in their outwardbound en- deavors. The varied activities of Nor- thward Bound will give almost every student a chance to share. Some will be good cooks, some may be good with map and com- pass, some will be more agile and adaptable than others. In or- der to use the region around us in our Northward Bound Programme, it is essential that the boys have knowledge of general woodscraft: it is the art of taking care of oneself in the wilds. The techniques of shelter building, fire-building, and camp- craft along wilh wilderness travel - these things are woodscraft. Basic instruction, a little com- mon sense, and one ' s own will- power will keep one safe and comfortable in the Northland. The Solo is an integral part of the Northward Bound Programme. Solo is not meant to be a miserable experience. Properly handled it can be one of the most significant experiences of a boy ' s life. Improperly handled, it can be extremely uncomfortable. Everything depends upon the boy ' s approach to the Solo, and on his preparation for it, the energy and imagination, and above all, the common sense he brings to adapting to life in the natural wild. I hope that by this experience, a boy may develop a deeper understanding of himself, and come to appreciate the in- tricate world of weather, of trees, of lakes, insects and plants, birds and fish upon which we all depend. There is enough to do in learning the geography and vegetation in a boy ' s Solo area and in working out the simplest and most efficient living scheme for himself to keep the student busy the whole time that he is out. Patience and versatility are basic for any sensible life in the woods. The boy must accept the fact that he lives in an en- vironment which, unlike a city or town, is not designed for him to make urban demands upon it. However, if he observes what it is and has to offer and adapts his life to its circumstances in- telligently, he can live com- fortably for an indefinite period of time. The student must discover what is possible in terms of the terrain and the sim- plest and most efficient pattern of life it permits. There is no vir- tue in being uncomfortable because you do not take the trouble to find out how to be comfortable. Once he accepts the wilderness for what it is, the boy can begin to find his place in it. Then it is full of resources which he can use. Each student is encouraged to keep a journal throughout the month at Northward Bound to give him a day-to-day record of his thoughts and impressions, ideals and accomplishments. He will find it useful in writing his course impressions at the end of the month and others may get a new slant on a particular student, through his journal, if he is willing to let you see it. Often, they want to show you, sometimes they want to keep it private; in any case, we ask that they keep a journal, if only for self-appraisal. So far as possible, the discipline at Northward Bound is self- discipline, and the students are placed in situations where they see the need for this. We must remember that Appleby Northward Bound is an infant project and as such will be under constant appraisal from all areas. It will grow and make intelligent change as we see it necessary in future years. It is an exciting and vibrant experiment and since its inception it has met my ex- pectations as a worthwhile living experience for young men. C.W. Noble, Director A Leader ' s Impressions This fall David Stuart, Peter Bloemen and I went to the Nor- thern Campus for the first month with the 10 A-1 class. I had been an assistant leader the previous summer but despite this, I im- mediately noticed the weight of responsibility. We did not have the benefit of assistants, so we had to be constantly present to supervise every activity. This af- fected us somewhat after a few days and we began to look for- ward to the evenings in our cabin while the boys were working on their projects. The first day I asked boys to per- form certain chores and they were not done properly or else not at all. I found it difficult to give orders to the boys or to supervise them as they did as told, but I soon realized that it was my responsibility to make sure that activities were com- pleted. Fortunately, as the month progressed, I found that I could ask certain boys to do things and by then they were responsible enough to do it. Most of the members of the class were only two years or so younger than myself and some had been friends at school. Though I found it easy to relate to them, this posed problems in some situations. Often while trip- ping, my group would complain of severe physical exhaustion bordering on a condition close to death. Obviously they had to be convinced that we could not stop after only two hours on the trail. Amazingly enough, after an average day most of them seemed to have more energy left than I. As I became accustomed to their limits, I tried to extend them further and now for the first time I had to decide when they truly had had enough. This did a great deal for my own self- discipline. While we were camping I tr ied to impress upon the members of the patrol an appreciation of the wilderness and chiefly how to camp without scarring the site. The other major stress was on community living. By the last trip we were working together un- selfishly on every portage and campsite. In this latter area each boy had found his niche: one boy preferred to cook, while another would start the fire, etc. I no longer had to worry about petty things like one unwashed dish, and who was to wash it! The leadership skills that I learn- ed at camp were very subtle things which I find difficult to label. Suffice it to say that David, Peter and I were considerably enriched by our experience, and that it made definite positive changes in each of our charac- ters. Scholastically, I do not think that we suffered a great deal. We managed to somehow complete our assignments in our spare time. Most of this time was spent in our cabin, however, simply relaxing and ' shooting the breeze ' , for we found a need to talk to someone of our own age after a full day in camp or on a trip with the boys. When we returned to Appleby we felt that we had only missed about two weeks of school work and this was mostly made up before the examinations. Reflecting on the whole ex- perience, I can now realize how much I matured in such a short time, as did David and Peter. All of the boys at camp had benefited in a similar manner. I feel as strongly now as then that the Northward Bound Program is one of the best experiences in living that Appleby boys will ever receive. John Wright Lost Expedition " Lost Expedition " may not be the most appropriate title for this tale - we simply did not have suf- ficient time to finish the day ' s hike. The day that our group chose to depart on this trip was a very pleasant one. We paddled towards the high cliffs that loom to the east of the island. Our problems began when we reached the mainland, pulled up our canoes and began the por- tage inland - from the wrong point on the map! Unaware of our misdirection, we trustingly let our compass guide us through the dense forest, aptly referred to as ' jungle ' , for a distance of about four miles. After wading through a stretch of swamp, we finally came upon a small lake. At first glance, I thought that it was our expected destination, Red-mountain Lake (see map, p. 97); but after a few minutes of mapwork and a close scrutiny of the terrain and land- marks, I realized that we were not where we should have been. This was Indigo Lake; we were miles from our desired destination. The boys had no notion of our plight and I decided that they would be happier in their ignorance for the time being. So while the boys had lunch, I deter- mined the proper bearing for the trek over to Red-mountain Lake. Thus it was, that at about three in the afternoon " Kink ' s " group pushed off. Hiking in and out of valleys, hills and swamps, we finally reached the tip of Red- mountain Lake. While working our way along the shoreline of the lake, I took another bearing, this one to Slide Rock Lake, where we had said that we would rendezvous with the other trip- ping groups. By this time the boys in my patrol began to realize that something had gone wrong, but since the sun was setting rapidly, I decided that they had better keep moving while we still had some daylight: if we could make it to Slide Rock, perhaps another one of the groups would be there to meet us. While following our new bearing, we ran into many new obstacles and got disoriented once again! As soon as we reached a clearing I decided that we would spend the night there. As the boys organized the collec- tion of wood, I started a fire. To make a long story short, we all spent a terribly cold and un- comfortable night. With no sleeping gear or shelter, most of us remained awake, huddled around the ever-dwindling fire. When it went out at about 3:30 a.m. (no one had enough energy to collect more wood) it began to rain. By the time the sun came up and I decided to move out, a few of the boys had fallen into the first stages of hypothermia. We followed a very dubious course due West, for we knew that sooner or later we would come upon Lake Temagami once again. After four grueling miles through the underbrush, we finally reached the shore. Once there, we had our breakfast of left-over bologna. At this time I was very worried about the condition of a few of the boys, but with a frozen smile I pushed the boys down the shoreline, to the spot where we had left our canoes the previous day. By a life-saving stroke of luck, John Wright had spotted our canoes from the powerboat (he had been combing the shore looking for us); we were rescued! The boys recovered after some warmth and rest; as for myself, the experience showed me just what the title " instructor " is all about. The experience that I shared with the group made me realize that they were foremost in my mind when danger threatened. It taught me something else to live by - on tight situations, always keep a smile, be it frozen or real. David Stuart I DMj£ stoart ' s ckouP Uhew — l " jj A Typical Day at Northward Bound The usual awakening was to a brisk October morning which oc- curredduring the later days of the first session involving 10 A1. What I am describing here is a hypothetical day which excludes groups arriving from or departing on excursion. The general format consisted of three groups, in- cluding one leader and seven boys. These groups, known as patrols, shared the responsibility of " running the show " on Rab- bitnose. then straight to breakfast which by this time should be ready. Af- ter an enjoyable breakfast comes clean-up procedures, which beyond serving the useful pur- pose of cleaning also promotes patrol cooperation, and a chance to demonstrate leadership qualities. After a while the fellows begin to realize that nobody is finished until the entire task is completed. While we clean up John Wright supervises the clean-up of the boathouse and Dave Stuart is getting his equipment ready for his canoe trip to Kokoko Lake. The weather is dry, and clear skies prevail, so Knobby decides to have John ' s patrol stain the new siding of the main lodge as well as chop wood. For the rest of the morning my group works on various projects with Mr. O ' Leary who is the master up for the week. This leaves me free for the morning and time for an at- tempt to catch up on some of my school work. When 1:00 P.M. rolls around we get lunch on the tables, co n- sisting soup and sandwich followed naturally by another clean-up. Then John ' s and my patrol switch activities, my patrol staining and John ' s working on projects. At about four o ' clock everybody is looking forward to a hot sauna to gain relief after the day ' s work. On Rabbitnose this is the only means to get clean and it is very successful. One not only feels clean but also very relaxed. The next hour or so is spent in whatever way one wants to, fishing, paddling or reading, " banging " away at the piano, or just lounging. Meanwhile " Knobby " and a couple of boys are racing around trying to get dinner ready. After the gluttons (this is no un- derstatement) are finished with their meal which ever contented everybody ' s stomach, the boys are told to get on with some work. They can either write in their daily journal or work on their projects, or just read a book. Usually there is some hot- chocolate and biscuits to round off another day " in the North " . Then remains the most difficult job of all: getting the boys to bed for some serious sleeping. This is the instructor ' s nightmare, mainly because we too want to get some sleep. So, good night. P.P. Bloemen Today I am duty instructor with the help of my patrol. On waking up at seven o ' clock, I go over to the boathouse to wake up two of my boys and assign them to help our illustrious coach-director " Knobby " with breakfast and to read the data on the weather- station. I then continue on to start the fire and attempt to start the electricity generator (The Beast). At 7:30 A.M. I wake up my fellow instructors, " Coach " and " Kink " and wake up the remaining boys. Next is the short jog of about three quarters of a mile, twice around the island, 94 Boys ' Impressions As I was walking to the boathouse to go to bed tonight, I looked out into the blackness of the woods, across the lake, and I wondered what it would be like the next night out there all alone. Tonight I tried to appreciate my bed as best as I could. This morning our group is on duty and we had to do dishes. We started at 8:30 and finished at 10:15. I am so sick of dishes I count them in my sleep. I realized something today: when you get hungry on a canoe trip, any food tastes good. For lunch today I had three pieces of brown bread with a small chunk of hard butter, a half-inch slice of cheese, a quarter-inch layer of peanut butter, and a quarter-inch layer of jam. It was fabulous. It ' s snowing! The 21st day of September and it ' s snowing. What a country! I saw weather today like none other I have seen in my life. The wind must have been forty miles per hour and gusting. The waves were all of five feet out on the lake. We awoke to the sound of wind whistling through cracks, and shouts and running footsteps on the rock. The Albacore had broken loose from its moorings and was being beaten against the rocks. I love the cold sunny weather. I feel like a trapper. I figure that when I am alone I get a twinge of homesickness, so I ' m trying to keep busy. Clean-up day. Everything within sight had to be cleaned. You name it, I cleaned it at least once. All three groups left and planned to meet at Slide Rock Lake. Two groups showed up. The third, Dave Stuart ' s group, never showed up. When we got back to camp they hadn ' t returned yet. It is now 11 P.M. and there is still no sign of them. Mr. Noble is planning on sending out a plane tomorrow to search. After we came back from the hike we ate stew for dinner and had a sauna. I wrote a letter and am now in bed. Good night, Journal. And good luck to Dave Stuart ' s group. Kokoko Lake was beautiful. There were no cottages or people there ... I have never been in a large place like that which was totally untouched by man. It was beautiful. Well, the final day of a fabulous month .... I ' ve never had a hap- pier month in my entire life .... I still don ' t want to go back down to Oakville .... I think I might deke out from School and go back up there. Tripping at Northward Bound Two of the most important and exciting activities that a young camper looks forward to are the canoeing and back-packing trips. These aspects of North- ward Bound activities are usually gone into with great detail and much preparation; both the boys and the instructors get together and plan for their trips. The canoe trips are perhaps the more favoured of the two because they are usually a little longer in both distance and time. Before anything is done, the course is laid out, along with prospective campsites. The length of the trips usually ranges from three to five days. Once the campsites have been chosen and the course has been laid out in full, a designated camper is put in charge of arranging a menu for the entire group. Another camper is sent to organize the tents and liners, and to make sure that everything from utensils to sleeping bags is packed and secured. This, of course, is all done the night before the depar- ture and checked by the in- structor in charge. The next day the patrol leaves early in the morning and sets out on its expedition. Depending on the weather, the patrol usually travels about 15 miles each day. Every so often, the patrol stops and has a breather and then moves on toward its destination. Lunch is usually had sometime around 12:30 or whenever a suitable site presents itself. After an hour for lunch, the patrol quickly moves on to its evening campsite. Because of the early darkness up North, the instructor has to make certain that a camp- site is reached no later than 4:00. Upon reaching a campsite, there is always a routine which the boys follow with regards to pit- ching tents, cooking dinner, etc. Two boys are put in charge of cooking throughout the trip; this not only gives them an op- portunity to cook whatever they wish, but it also gives them prac- tical experience in the culinary arts. After the dinner and clearing up has been completed, the campers sit around the fire and talk of the day ' s experiences and of the course which is to be followed the next day. Most of the days are made up of hard paddling and tough portages; as a result, every one goes to sleep early in the evening and wakes up early. As a general rule, back-packing trips are much shorter than canoe trips. However, the same routine for the setting-up of campsites and hourly breaks ap- plies here as well. The only dif- ference is the walking instead of canoeing as a means of trans- portation. The patrol is let off in a boat in a bay near a portage in the early morning and picked up the following evening at the same spot. There is usually a short trek through the bush until a logging road is reached. The patrol follows the logging roads throughout the entire trip, com- ing upon logging camps and small inland lakes and streams. By using both their compasses and these logging roads, the campers reach their campsite, which is usually situated by an inland lake. Both types of trips mentioned might perhaps seem boring to those who have not experienced them. Unfortunately, it is difficult to describe the feelings that the boys experience when on these trips. Every trip is different, and with each one comes a whole host of unusual and at times comical ex- periences. The dull routine (as described) of a day of canoeing or back-packing is greatly sur- passed by the occasional moments of realizing what freedom is all about, not to men- tion the wonderful feeling of self- sufficiency. Peter Taylor I Of, Rabbitnose Island and Surroundings Vaa Eve A v u X-. 9 Map by John Wright Solo I awoke early that morning with the sun shining brightly in my eyes. This was the morning I was to depart for my 48 hour solo. The day was the best I had seen in the whole month up here. I completed my laps and swim and jaunted off to the lodge for breakfast. I stuffed myself as if it were to be my last meal, and got my kit together. My food con- sisted of two chocolate chunks, a can of sardines, a bag of tea bisk, and two tea bags. I was allowed ten ft. of butcher cord, a small pot, eight matches and a six by ten foot sheet of plastic. Dave Gibson, my counselor, told me it was time to go, so I reluc- tantly got into the boat with some of the other soloists and we sped off to Seal Rock Pt. When I got there a feeling of panic filled me, and great loneliness. Right from the beginning I was busy, for I knew that if I kept busy I would not get lonely. First I looked around the area for a good site to pitch my shelter and then proceeded to find three large tent poles. I constructed this shelter and stretched my plastic sheet over it in about 20 minutes. Then I layed 6 inches of balsam bough bedding to in- sulate me and keep me dry. My next job was to build a fire which would reflect heat into my shelter. This would be a trapper ' s fire with a large stone for the backdrop which later took a great deal of dragging and tugging. When my fire was built I constructed a wood pile 4 feet high which took me till about four o ' clock or so, as I could calculate by the sun. The rest of the day I investigated the surrounding area. I came back into camp around six o ' clock and lit the fire anew and baked my bannock on the end of a stick. After eating I stoked the fire up and dropped off to sleep. The next morning I awoke and there was frost all over my sleeping bag and the temperature was about 30F and the sun was shining brightly through the pines. I started a fire and cooked the rest of my food. Then my counselor came by to check up on me at about 8 o ' clock and he took a picture of me and my -• ' shelter. Throughout the rest ot the day I did some thinking, writing and carving. Fraser was about 1 2 mile away so we screamed and hollered to each other and could distinguish some of the words. About four o ' clock I got really hungry and by this time I was talking and singing to myself. The drone of Dave ' s motor boat was very welcome in- deed. We went back to the lodge in a seemingly endless journey, expecting that when we got back to the lodge we would be feasting. When we landed at Rabbitnose Island we were greeted by Knobby with the vile statement: " dinner is in about an hour and a half. " P. Harnden 10 A-2 Solo I came to Canada about eight months ago. Just two weeks after I arrived, our class went up North. We also were the first group who went there. Everything seemed so strange to me. The country, the people, the life. It was quite different from Hong Kong. Another thing was I couldn ' t communicate too well with the others because of the problem in language. As time went by I started to get used to it. The whole class was divided into three groups of seven. With the guiding of the instructors we usually had three day canoeing or hiking trips every week. I lear- ned a lot of skills everyday. For example, how to set up a fire, build a shelter, paddle a canoe and cook. I made a lot of friends too. But time passed by very quickly, there was only one more week left of our month. We were going to have our solos the last week. I started to worry. " What will happen to me? " , I thought. Will I get lost, or maybe even get killed by the wild animals? I also cared about the problem of food too. When I got there, starving was not the problem. I had to survive with myself for nearly one and a half days. What unknown dangers were lurking in the bush? Loneliness came over me, especially since I came from Hong Kong, such a crowded city. And the worst fear was the fear of failure. I got myself busy to keep the fear away, and then darkness came. I tried to go to sleep as early as I could, but all sorts of terrible thoughts came into my head: bears, snakes, devils, ghosts, I just couldn ' t go to sleep. Suddenly I said to myself: " What am I afraid of? Why don ' t I just make up my mind and face the problem? I have to face it sometime. " I thought of my parents who sent me over to Canada to be educated and learn how to face such difficulties; how could I let them down? I thought it over, it wasn ' t too hard really. Now I was not afraid any more. Nothing could scare me. The sky was very dark and I fell asleep soon afterwards. Although I woke up a few times, the night passed very fast. The next morning I woke up to the noise of a chipmunk. It was raining; I cooked my breakfast, although there was not much food left. In the afternoon they picked me up. I was proud of myself: I had made it.

This stump, I hope is up to par, Someway to end a day. At last, the top is in our grasp, A race to see the view. No need for things on which to clasp. Thank God. for flat ground too. AN IMAGE Alone and desolate it stood, silhouetted against the rising sun. Glistening with fresh ice ... Reflecting the branches and clear blue sky. With bark tough and ridged: the odd drop of sap ... Oozing forth from a separ ate world. Erect, unflinching, the soldier of the woods Stood alone and desolate, after the battle. N. Jackson We left the van, it ' s warmth and calm, And stepped into the Cold. We strapped on shoes with sweaty palms. We feared what might unfold. The crispy crunch of breaking trail, The old life left behind. Our bodies hard against the gale. The goal we hoped to find. The wind blown snow, the dark, grey, cold, It bit the feet and hands. Our reddened faces froze, yet told, We ' d conquer northern lands. The march grew long, and so did day, Our camp, we soon must reach. Fatigue grew strong in every way. I hate this off-white beach! A point ahead, around the bend. Our destiny to see. But wait; just snow and ice to tend, This seems like hell to me. Another ste p, another mile, I ' m walking half asleep. We ' ll be there in a little while, This thought, I have to keep. Am I here, or have I died, Or is this just a dream. God knows how hard my body ' s tried! I see a faint red beam. The sun has broken through the clouds, A ball of burning flame. The whistling wind is not so loud, The cold not quite the same. N. Jackson 100 And straight ahead we see the place, The island, that we sought. Now all at once, the walk ' s a race, We ' ve beaten what we ' ve fought. We stumbled in, our limbs were numbed, The wood, it felt like foam. Thank God, my will had not suc- cumbed, It ' s warm: I ' ll call it home. T. French From Witch ' s Point we all could see Rabbitnose and I assure you it was a welcome sight. We had been walking for six miles. It was not actually the distance that bothered most of us but more the fatique caused by our first en- counter with snowshoes. As we neared the island, the first thing that caught my eyes was a large ruddy-brown coloured building. The most outstanding feature of the building was the fact that the roof sagged downwards at a moderate angle. Having never seen a picture of the northern campus, this building dismayed me to a great degree. When I stepped off the lake and onto the dock, I overheard that the large building was known as the boathouse and it was to be our sleeping quarters. Being quite tired we entered the boathouse immediately. My second surprise came when I realized that the staircase inside the boathouse was tilted to one side and badly iced. At the top of the staircase was a door. The second floor of the boathouse was different. It was warm and cosy. There was a total of five rooms, all furnished in chip board. Inside each room were bunks, with mattresses, constructed with 2x4 ' s. There were two large propane heaters along with two mantle - lit propane lamps. On the outside of the two largest rooms was a very inviting sun deck, where our only reminder of civilization, the Canadian Maple Leaf was flying. The most endearing feature of the boathouse, however, was the abundance of names of former occupants carved everywhere. Directly beneath the rooms was a storage area full of canoes, sailboats, and camping equip- ment. For the most part this was heavily piled but around the edges lay stocks of odd junk. The most interesting part of the boathouse was the ATV. It had six wheels and was very capable of making its way through any terrain, as its name suggests. G. Stott 10 It is a cold, wintry morning, and nine drowsy figures tumble out of bed, landing on the rough, splin- tery floor of the boathouse. Some are dressing, while others peer into the entrance hall, to see if the two duty boys have refilled the wash basins before going up to the lodge. It is customary for two boys from the duty patrol to go up to the lodge at six-thirty or seven and prepare breakfast for the others, who can sleep in until eight. Before they go up to the kitchen, however, they have to go to the waterhole and break through the layer of ice that has formed over the previous night, and fill up the washbasins. The bodies can now be seen filing out of the boathouse door, shuddering at the minus fifteen degree weather. They troop up the narrow dock-like path to the lodge, an outwardly plain, somewhat decrepit building in any other climate, but warm, welcoming and friendly here. The wooden-framed windows, par- titioned into six panes, in the old style, are insulated with plastic sheets. The figures shuffle silently past the windows, glancing inside and seeing the bacon grilling and the porridge congealing in the cauldron on the old-fashioned, gasfired, stove. As they open the outer door, they are greeted by a rush of warm air, and they step into the an- teroom, which is designed to conserve heat. They open the second door, and find them- selves in a warm, rustic room, with a huge stone fireplace, con- taining a hearty, crackling fire. Pelts of raccoon, squirrel and a rabbit head adorn the walls. Pic- tures of the lake and island in years now past also look down from the wooden-panelled walls. A battered spinnet piano leans against the far wall, the ivory keys yellow with age and use. The once shiny walnut box is scratched and dented, its fine 101 carvings unable to survive its ar- duous life. Beside the fireplace, one sees a five-foot high, six-foot long pile of logs, for the fire. A hurricane lantern, bringing you back to the seventies, hisses out its bright white light on top of the piano. Breakfast has begun now, and the formerly silent and dismal phantoms of the boathouse have come to life over the hot porridge, sizzling bacon, and golden-brown eggs. The murmur of conversation rises to a steady buzz before the middle of break- fast, in the small, wood-panelled dining room, with its varnished oak tables and squat, wood- burning stove, heartily con- suming log after log in its belly. An almost smiling moose head stares down from its plaque on the wall, showing off its magnificent crown of antlers. Some bright spark has put a fluorescent hunting cap on its head, a strange irony. A match, also placed by some wit, rests in its mouth, in a thoughtful sort of way. A swinging door leads the way into the kitchen, an old- fashioned, gas-equipped scullery. The stove is a huge, matte black, iron affair, with a monstrous door hiding in the gaping cavity of an oven. Four large burners sit above the stove, one running constantly, keeping a huge silver cauldron steaming, which contains the only hot water on the island. Leading off the kitchen is the pantry, where dried foods of all varieties sit on the shelves. Pails full of sugar, lard, and flour, mounted on wheels, slide under the shelves. Breakfast is over now, and grace is said. A few mumbled and barely audible ' Amens ' precede a shuffling, as boys move to the benches, sofa and rocking chair, which encircle the pot-bellied stove. The director now outlines the affairs that are going on that day, the second of two weeks. " Now " , says the director, as he swings his leg over the back of a chair to rest on the seat, " Gen- tlemen, you and your respective counselors will lunch out today in spots chosen by them. Rob ' s group will head for the second inlet, while John ' s and Bruce ' s groups will head towards Sealrock point. Get your supplies and billys now, and the non-duty patrol can leave immediately. The duty patrol can leave shortly, after clean-up. That ' s all. " Again the scraping of chairs and growing buzz of conversation, as the boys get up and race to the kitchen, and into the pantry. When the non-duty patrol has got their supplies, they leave the kit- chen to the duty boys, who are left with the arduous task of dish- washing. The AM-FM radio is happily blaring out the top ten, as it has done through countless years and batteries. We join up with the non-duty patrol once again, as we see them filing out of the boathouse, once again. This time, however, they are wearing heavy parkas, coats, gloves, goggles and sunglasses, and balaclavas and heavy winter boots. Three ' lucky ' ones are also wearing bright orange packsacks, containing a ' light ' load, about thirty pounds. The weight is jacked up by the sleeping bag, which must be carried at all times, even if it is not an overnight trip, in the even- tuality that some poor un- fortunate should find a hole in the ice. The five voyageurs, looking like members of Scott ' s Antarctic team, are now bent over, strap- ping on the snowshoes, so vital to travel the lake and surroun- ding area, because of the two to three feet-deep snowdrifts. Goggles or sunglasses are a necessity there, as the glare from the snow is great enough to cause temporary blindness. All five are ready now, their snowhoes adjusted, goggles pulled down over the eyes, packs set snugly on their backs. They jump off the dock, and form a line, one counselor leading, one bringing up the rear. The three mile trek begins, as the muffled creatures plodd along, awkward on the snowshoes. The worm-like line fades into the distance, melting into and becoming part of the scenery - the grey, jagged cliffs, crowned with a tiara of evergreens, en- closing the seemingly endless plain of frozen lake. It seems that all beauty and life freezes in win- ter, along with the lake. Charles Stacey 102 £ 103 Summer Sports The First Cricket XI FRONT ROW: Dickens. Jamieson, Jennings I, Sims, Taylor I. Mann, To. BACK ROW: Mr. Larsen, Morgan I, Merrift, Wetmore, Green I, Large, Mr. Dickens. Our first game was back in chilly April, when against the West St. Catherine ' s Club, Wetmore, Jamieson and Taylor batted very well to give us a total of 123, causing our opponents to fight for a draw. Next game we got Oakville B team out for 99 with Sims bowling well and then Merritt went to work, scoring 60 of the first 61 runs and leading us to a good win. A team garnered by the coach made the school bowling look average, but against batsmen looked very good indeed and swept to an ex- citing victory. Probably our most impressive win was against Gracechurch whom we beat by 5 wickets. The strongest team we faced all year was the Green- mantles who made mince-meat of our bowlers to score 154. But then, in their finest hour, Wet- more, Jamieson, Sims and To batted magnificently against very good bowling so that our mighty adversaries were very lucky to get a draw. With batting like that how could we ever lose to school boys! Obviously we were all set to sweep the ISAA! Oh vanity! All 106 is vanity! We gave a hint of our fallibility against a weak St. An- drews team by scraping only 61 runs. Fortunately the bowlers, especially Ian Mann, aided by some great catching by Wet- more, rose to the occasion to give us a win. Then came the big game U.C.C. On a very hot day we fielded first and did very well to get a strong batting team out for 110. Then against wild, fast bowling from one end and ac- curate bowling from the other, we proceeded to disgrace our- selves. Only Merritt got double figures, the rest threw their wickets away. At T.C.S. all the bowlers bowled well as we got them out for 81, but now we had to rely on batsmen whose vulnerability on big occasions had been demonstrated. The im- portance of a good start was clearly shown as this time Wet- more dug in and gave a fine determined display to make 44 not out and so give us a win. When we faced Ridley, we needed only a draw or a win to give us second place in the ISAA, so we elected to bat first, intending to pile up the runs. But our batsmen revealed great ingenuity in getting out against very ordinary bowlers, so that our later batsmen had to scrape and scratch to put our score at 68 af- ter three hours. Our bowlers tried very hard but in a close game small mistakes make all the dif- ference, so that two dropped cat- ches lost the game in the final over. Looking back, it is apparent that this was a very successful season, in which we did not rely on one or two stars but had talent all the way through the team. To a few, special awards: for the unluckiest bowler - Ian Mann; biggest hitter - Chris Merritt; biggest range (from superb to awful) - Jim Wetmore; most stylish - Roland To; most im- proved - Ross Large; and greatest potential to go from 12th man to best bowler - Ed Dickens; and to an excellent captain, good all-rounder and fine young gen- tleman - Wayne Sims. The future looks good. Although we will lose six of this year ' s team, we have some good players coming up. With a tour to England in 76 to aim for, we must concentrate on eradicating those fundamental batting faults that caused our players to get out to poor bowling, and make it a tradition to come through - each one of us - in the big games.

BACK ROW: Strudwick, Webb II, Morrison II, Cameron, Harrigan, Burke I, Mr. Revill. The improved standard of cricket throughout the school was much in evidence at the Second Team level. Under the capable leader- ship of Dave Suchanek and Rob Strudwick we were able to have an enjoyable season. The bowling was the strong part of our team, having more bowlers than we really knew what to do with. Cameron, Morrison, and Suchanek, well assisted by Beasley, McLaughlin and Baiz took their wickets in turn. They had good length and consistency throughout the season. Our fielding this year showed great promise, with some un- believeable catches by Suchanek and our improving wicket keeper Steve Harrigan.

Batting seemed to be the weakest part of our performance, but potentially we should have done much better in this depart- ment. Suchanek, Morrison, Webb, Harrigan and Lytle flat- tered to deceive. Lytle and Gaskin, our opening batsmen did well in tiring out the opposition ' s opening bowlers, but were slow in scoring. Overall there was a great im- provement in the team ' s per- formance and with a little more experience and sense of pur- pose, we would have gone through the season undefeated. Most of all we would like to thank our coach Mr. Revill for the time he spent in developing the The Third Cricket XI FRONT ROW: Reid, Stafford I, Peart II, Harnden, Dekovachich, Day, Toles I.

Indoor practises of early April finally gave way to outdoor sessions in late April and we then thought we were ready for Ridley. However with a much stronger batting side against us, in spite of our opening score of 92, Ridley amassed 112 for 4. A few days later, against a much weaker Lakefield team, we won by 8 wickets. On a sunny Wed- nesday afternoon in Aurora we more than met our match at St. Andrews. They had a first class team composed of many West In- dian students who played strongly all day. S.A.C. - 108, Ap- pleby - 56. The best was yet to come! Upper Canada by 7 wickets and T.C.S. by 132 for 6 declared, were in- deed results to be proud of. In fact we held U.C.C. to 23 runs and T.C.S. to 38. Some superb bowling against U.C.C. by David Burchmore, who took 6 wickets and by Mark Wilson against T.C.S. with 7 wickets while he peronsally added 63 runs to our count, gave us decisive victories. Our last match of the season was a return engagement with the strong Ridley side. Results: Ridley 124 for 3 while we fought valiantly for adraw with 58 for 9 as time ran out on Ridley. Well done to a spirited and en- thusiastic third team and thanks to our captain, Brad Thomson for his help during the Season.

Cheney, Hawthorne, Falco I. BACK ROW: Mr. Larsen, Labrie. McAlister, Waterfield, McMurchy. Stuart I, Mr. Washington. From the start of the season the Open Rugger team showed the spirit that has characterized it in the past few years. However tne team did not have the experience of other years. After a couple of busy weeks a game was played at Ridley. High winds prevented both sides from playing a good game and, in fact, only one try was scored, that by Ridley. In our second game, we again lost narrowly, 12-8. However much valuable experience was gained by those who had never played in a game before. Appleby won the next two exhibition games against U.C.C. (8-6) and Bloor Collegiate (8-3). The forwards played two very good games, hitting clean and hard. The backs, although they had at that point not regained their smoothness from last season, moved the ball quite well. Our first League game was against Trinity. The team was starting ' to click ' . The forwards worked as a strong unit in the scrum, the backs contained T.C.S. and prevented them from scoring any points. The final score was 15-0 for Appleby. In another exhibition game we met our strongest opposition, Brantford Collegiate. They were big, strong and experienced. Both sides played a good game but in the end the score showed Brantford on top, 10-6. Everyone on the team was having fun playing the game and, as a result, we started playing much better. St. Andrew ' s came down for our next game. The forwards had another good game, winning the scrums and line outs. The backs moved the ball exceptionally well. However the game was not 110 an easy one and on one or two occasions only the superb tackling of the backs prevented S.A.C. from travelling the last 10 yards to score. The final result however was an impressive 23-0 win. The long, hot trip to Lakefield did not detract from the drive of the first fifteen. The team played well as the final score, 21-0, indicates. We showed U.C.C. that we had learned a few things since our last meeting when we went there in late May. The backs were able to contain the opposition and the forwards managed to get the ball out to our backs. The score proved to be the best to date 24- 0. As neither Appleby nor Ridley had lost a league game, the match between these two teams would be the championship. This would be the hardest game of the season, we thought. The half time score found us in the lead by a couple of points. At half time we were not very happy with our play. In the second half, the team started to play as they had never played before. Working together, the forwards and backs ran-in four quick tries. Ridley answered with only one. The championship IHHV " was ours with a score of 31-10. When a team plays together as closely as the Open Rugger did this year it is difficult to pick out individuals. All gave 100% There are however a few who should be singled out: Scotty Hawthorne, for his performance Wj 111 in the scrum and the drive that got him many tries; Nick Water- field for his kicking; Rick Wilson for his second effort, that moved the ball extra yards, and John Slattery for his great job at full back - when his health allowed him to play. Without its leaders, the team would not have enjoyed the success that it did. The cap- tains, John Rosseel, Kerry Cantle and Tim Labrie, led the team in ability and enthusiasm. A great deal of the success of the team is due to these three for their guidance, help and leadership. The Rugger team was successful in two ways; we won the league Championship and, more im- portantly, we had fun playing good, clean rugger. The credit for both these successes goes to Mr. Washington. He trained the team (some of whom had never before seen a rugger ball) into a team that could play well. More than just teaching us how to play the game, he taught us how to play it cleanly ' just to have fun - for if we did that, we would win ' . We did that. Thank you, Mr. Washington. D.M.C. 4sF 0?N 112 The Under 17 Rugger Team FRONT ROW: Wright I, Jackson II, McBride I, Bourne, Crosbie II, Slattery II, Withey, Moffat, McCarter. BACK ROW: Jennings II, Hall, Johnson I, Bloemen I, Keates I, VanTighem II, Graham, Thomson II, Kingsley, Kacan, Mr. Stuart. This season proved to be the toughest experience by the U-17 team since the school started playing fifteen-a-side. The op- position showed that they are im- proving each year and that " easy " wins are becoming a thing of the past. The opening exhibition game against Ridley took place in a fifty mile an hour wind, but despite a ball which was hard to handle, the side won 20-0. The first real test came in the second game when a much strengthened U.C.C. side allowed only the narrowest of wins to Appleby. It was then that we knew the op- position was stronger! The first league game was against T.C.S. and by this time the team was playing as a cohesive unit with a number of new players setting the pace for some of the old hands. The T.C.S. game was hardly a test as the score of 42-0 for Appleby would indicate. The real test came when we played S.A.C., narrowly losing by a score of 8-6. In this particular game the inex- v r ? % 113 • » perience ot many players stood out, particularly in defense where the habit of throwing the ball away under pressure resulted in both of S.A.C. ' s tries. Following the S.A.C. defeat, the first in league competition for two years, Appleby managed to win the remainder of its games against U.C.C., Lakefield and Ridley. The final standings show Appleby and S.A.C. tied for first place as the latter lost one of their league games during the season. It was a good season with much credit going to the leadership of Paul Crosbie, our captain, and Jim Slattery our Vice-Captain. With a number of players likely to remain at this level next year, we should once again look forward to an enjoyable and, we hope, successful season. 114 The Bantam Rugger Team FRONT ROW: VanTighem III, Woolley, Richards I, Kishino, Merrill, Green III, Bateman, Leggat. BACK ROW: Stacey, Thompson III, Logan II, Keates II, Marsh, Hubner, Stott, Sell, Halliday, Piatt, Mr. Day. Bantams are rather small birds usually. This " Bantam " team belied its name in possessing several big forwards, but, whatever their size, all team members played forceful, at- tacking rugger at all times, even when tactical discretion should have dictated otherwise. Basic drills for line-out and scrummaging were well executed, whilst the whole for- ward line possessed a promising ability both to run the ball and to provide good defensive covering. It is not surprising therefore that the forwards scored a number of tries. George Stott, David Keates and Alasdair Halliday, showed up well in line-out play and scrum- maging; Charles Stacey led a number of determined rushes in open play; the back row trio of John Van Tighem, John Piatt and Danny Sell showed tremendous drive in attack and performed some fine feats of covering and following-up. Thanks to the hard wo rk of the pack, including hooker Ashley Kishino, there was an ample supply of the ball for the three quarters. Frank Merrill, Greg Marsh, Colin Richards and Paul Hubner ran and handled well, while full-back Paul Bateman joined regularly in the attack. They will score more tries when they refine their passing, give the ball on a little sooner so as not to be caught in possession, and make greater use of the kick-ahead. Other boys appeared in one or two games - Peter Logan, Chris Thompson, Richard Woolley, Ian Fisher and Segundo Mariz - and still others did not manage to gain a place in the side. However, without them and the spirited opposition they provided in practices, the team would not have been so successful. Linking the pack and the backs was Graham Leggat, who is developing into a thoughtful and very promising scrum-half. He provided a good service to his fly-half, Don Green, whose powerful, elusive running was a decisive feature of our attack, despite his tendency to swing wide and restrict the movements of his three-quarters. He scored in every game, n tries in all. Graham Leggat added goal- kicking of great accuracy, covering 19 tries - 4 of which he scored - and kicking 5 penalty goals. This half-back pair ac- cumulated 116 points between them, a tremendous per- formance. And yet, despite individual skill, success was due to excellent team - spirit, team - work, and an eagerness to play open, at- tacking rugger. The game cer- tainly came alive with them. Un- der the captaincy of Frank Merrill they have had a memorable season: to score 146 points without a single one against is no mean feat. I thank them for the pleasure I have had in coaching them and for their excellent sport- smanship. Philip Day 115 Tennis Team FRONT ROW: Robertson I. Wood I, Paterson I, Henkel, Roberts. CENTRE ROW: Hogaboam, Stuart II. Green II. Wegb I, Ritson, Connor. BACK ROW: Mr. Larsen, Keil. Bramall. Mr. Abbott. Contrary to last year, the weather this season was very good, in fact, almost too good. The team was again very young and we certainly felt the loss of Gary Machan. We maintained our standing by just hanging into the " A " league with the four other major schools. Again, I have to say that Appleby must bide its time until the grade nine ' s and ten ' s that comprised 90% of the team gain two or three years more ex- perience. Some of the fellows have a lot of potential but right now they are playing over their hea ds much of the time. The second doubles was played by Miles Hogaboam and Duncan Roberts and although they did not see a lot of action they played well when they did. The first doubles was made up of the same fellows as last year, Struan Robertson and Chris Wood. It took a little while for them to get back in the groove but then they practiced seriously and played very well on several occasions. John Ritson played second singles for us this year and despite his sometimes unusual court appearances (sweat pants at 85% and black socks with whites) he played good con- sistent tennis ana he certainly has many good years to look for- ward to. The Captain and first singles of the team was Alex Paterson and although he won few sets this season, gained much experience from playing against the finest tennis players in the league. As captain, I would like to thank Mr. Abbott and Mrs. J. Gairdner for all their efforts, and hope that they persist in their efforts next year. 116 Track i -v Ne r L ■ i g y- - (.. .

Much as I would like to make you chuckle, this will probably be very straight - but short. First of all I must tell you how very much my family and I have enjoyed this year. We have some fond memories. Some we can share, like the evening this win- ter when Graham Kolle, after being pelted with snow, chased and rubbed snow in his assailant ' s face, only then to realize it was Mrs. Washington. She deserved it. I don ' t think I shall ever forget standing at the end of the 4-bedder deck in the middle of a raging pillow fight, having my presence noted and seeing the hall suddenly vacated, apart from young Danny Yustin, who was dealt one final blow with a pillow from Bruce Boyd, who suddenly leapt from his room. Some memories are very per- sonal; small, seemingly in- significant things, like a smile or a look or a few words spoken at just the right time. We had two enjoyable parties this year. One at Christmas, the highlight of which was some fine entertainment by some of our talented members, including Mr. Larsen, who told us of his Nor- wegian Grandfather, the inventor of 6-Up and phonetic punc- tuation. We have booked Mr. Lar- sen for a return engagement next December. The barbecue at the year ' s end was also fun, although we had a little trouble lighting the coals. As usual the coals were perfect about one hour af- ter we had finished! I must remember that next year. Kerry has probably told you about our laundromat and pizza business, (thanks to the donation of appliances by Mrs. Morrison), but he may not have mentioned our Art Gallery. It is located in the hall of the 4-bedder deck. At present we have two paintings - a 4 ' x8 ' lake and woodland scene by Jim Hou and a 4 ' x4 ' mountain and woodland scene by Dave Morrison. We are very proud of these fine paintings and we hope that other artists in the School will make contributions in the future. In all respects it has been a suc- cessful and a happy year. We have been fortunate to have Prefects who were firm but fair, who tried to be consistent and do what they thought to be right and who, when they made mistakes were prepared to acknowledge them and tried to rectify them. Most of all we have a fine group of boys who like and respect each other and who are prepared to give of their very best. I am very proud of them, one and all. J. Washington Let the first house be first. This has been one of Colley house ' s better years. The people in the house put great enthusiasm into everything they did, and we ac- complished a lot. When we raided Powell ' s house and gutted the inside ' this was Colley house ' s finest hour ' . Un- fortunately we received ' bloody hell ' from J. Wal. At Christmas we gave our glorious housemaster an alarm clock so he could get up early in the morning. We have yet to see him rise to the occasion. We have a few dignitaries in the house this year. Among them " Doc Halliday " and the " Mad bomber " and " Radar " . We initiated the Colley house Riviera, where you can soak up " the Malibu Rays " . We became Chinese and Italians at the same time with our laundromat and pizzeria. But to be serious for a moment, " We are the greatest " . We have a housemaster who can " juice-tify " anything we say. The spirit in Colley house this year was something special. We played together in all our sports and worked for high academic standards, probably the house ' s most successful year in that field. But what Colley house is really noted for, is its own type of spirit. The people never quit. This is something that Colley house will always hang on to. It ' s been a great year and many thanks to all the people in the house. And on behalf of the house I would like to thank Mr. Washington for his leadership and standards. Kerry Cantle 137 Powell ' s House At first glance one isawed by the rambling, dingy, " gloriously green " decks which comprise the formidable structure known enviously as Powell ' s House. Even though these are not the most deluxe accommodations, the spirit and comradeship among the boys and between the boys and masters has made the House more than just a residence, but a home. Powell ' s House is not composed entirely of athletes nor are we by any stretch of the imagination overly scholarly. Instead we are fortunate that we have had a mix- ture of all backgrounds this year. This has been shown to be the case in all our endeavours whether they be a rugged rugby match or a moving chapel ser- vice. In hockey, cricket, tennis, swimming and debating we have put forth our best effort. In some cases all we lacked was the necessary luck to clinch first place. " Diggers Bunch " has shared many good times together (in- cluding a grade ten deck party in June). We have had a great year thanks not only to Mr. Smith and Mr. Landry but also to the boys who have made the house so great a place to be a part of. It is unfortunate that space does not permit us to express our deep ap- preciation to all the masters and boys of the house except to say thanks a lot for a memorable year. Since coming to be Housemaster n Powell ' s House in November of 1960, I can ' t ever recall being as happy and as satisfied with the whole operation of the House as I have been this year. The reasons should be obvious to anyone who resided in the house. Dedicated and consistent help was provided by my assistant, Mr. Landry, and by the other members of the staff who did duty in the evenings - Mr. Humphreys, Mr. O ' Leary and Mr. Shorney. The quality and respon- sibility of our prefects, Dave Crosbie, Buzz Green, Chris Merritt, Jay Burn, Kevin McMur- chy and Micheil Jennings was excellent. Most of the time, the spirit, enthusiasm and behaviour of the boys in the House was also very encouraging. Mrs. Lytle and her ladies worked hard yet cheerfully on our behalf. As a result of all these forces working together, how could we help but have a happy year? I thank you one and all.

Thomas Henkel The First Soccer Team The Junior School first soccer team, on occasions, combined well to play successfully as a team. The defence, with Smith handling high shots, and Gray, Lanch and Wright kicking hard, was solid, but rather slow. Con- sequently, fast-breaking forwards too often got behind them. In mid-field we often dominated; Skipper McBride, Dorion and Burke covered many miles in trying to maintain control. Sutherland on the wing was fast, Appleby and Pike who each played at centre forward (in dif- ferent games of course) were determined and aggressive, while Durst and Washington on the left often combined very ef- fectively. Un doubtedly our greatest weakness was in shooting, as those who shot hard were usually inaccurate, while those who were accurate lacked FRONT ROW: Washington, Smith. Dorion. CENTRE ROW: Burke.

The most pleasing aspect of the season was that we played hard as a team with no bickering or complaining about each other ' s performance. Seconds practiced with Firsts throughout The Second Soccer Team the season and, indeed, the two squads were quite closely con- nected, with several players having played for both teams at one time or another. David Stevenson, our Captain, provided an excellent example of gentlemanly conduct on the field and his fellows readily grasped this important aspect of the game. Some other aspects, such as passing and kicking directly on the net were not grasped quite so completely. However, we did manage to press our op- position very hard at times and Hickling, Fife I, Baiz, Brooks, and Holland scored some very satisfying and important goals. Defensively. Coxon, Hueton I, Bundschuch and Dowling played very well though we had FRONT ROW: Hickling. Holland. Stevenson, Fife I, Bundschuh, Baiz II. BACK ROW: Dowling. Coxon. Mr. Boyd. Brooks. Hueton I. Hewitt, Gilchrist. problems in regaining control of the ball in our end. Hewitt and Jaciw, sidelined for a while because of injuries and viruses, played solidly when they were on the field. The Third Soccer Team Although we did not fare too well in the win-loss column, noticeable improvement was in- dicated. The forward line, led by Chuck McNair, had many op- portunities but it was not until the end of the season that our shots began to find the mark. Their at- tempts were aided by the im- proved team play of our half- backs, Scott Hughes, B. Kay and A. Boyd. We had an inex- perienced defense but what they lacked in skills was certainly made up in effort. Gilroy, Shaw and Jenkin all showed a willingness to improve their play and to work as a unit. We cannot forget our goalkeeper, Morgan, who switched from his position on the forward line to fill the ' keeper ' s ' duties. His efforts gave us the inspiration to play on when we needed it the most, for which he has our thanks. FRONT ROW: Freeman, Morgan III, Meredith, Boyd, Rampen II, Gilroy. BACK ROW: Jenkin, Thurley, McNair, Mr. Bailey, Kay, Shaw, Stewart, Hughes I. The Fourth Soccer Team The fourth soccer team had an excellent season with a record of five wins, one loss and two ties. Strong play from all members of the team led to a well balanced attack and defense. The team was ably captained by Craig Fretwell who along with Connor and Strucken dominated the mid- field play. The forwards on the team were small and were often at a disadvatage against tall defenders but the speed of Rolin in the centre initiated many at- tacks. Many opportunities were missed in front of the net but the forwards continued to press until the opposition would make an error. On defense the greatest attribute of the team was its speed. Fife II and Gordon I were prone to com- mit themselves too early but usually managed to recover in time to prevent any clear chan- FRONT ROW: Thomson, Schmidt, Fretwell, Rolin, Fife II. BACK ROW: Gordon I, Connor, Mr. McLean, Senst, Strucken, McKenzie II. ces. Schmidt in goal played well when called on and allowed only five goals in eignt games. Fifth Soccer Team With the co-captains Ross II and Sidford charging down the left side, and Campbell and Phillips racing down on the right, the fifth team presented a strong offence. While we were shorter than most of our opponents, our half-backs and full-backs disorganized op- ponents by their hard work and driving play. Leading this work were Sutton, Duncan II and Samuel. When the opposing teams did break through, they had to face our goalie, Toles II, who was remarkable. After losing the first two games, we played as a team to win four of the remaining five games. Members of the ' Fifths ' will have to be reckoned with as they gain experience and play still more as a unit. FRONT ROW: Phippen, Sidford, Vernon II, Ross III. Duncan II. Toles II. BACK ROW: Wood II. Campbell. Vernon I. Mr. Sharpe. Samuel, Phillips, Sutton. The Cross -Country Team The cross-country teams have enjoyed quite a good season, with especially promising per- formances from some of the juniors. Early in October a team ran in the invitational High School meet at Brock University. Although their overall 15th position seems rather low, our eleven and twelve year olds were running in the under 15 division. David Burke, Craig Dowling and Andrew Ross turned in fine per- formances. The best indication of how the teams compared with others was in the Independent Schools meet held here in November, in which there were two divisions - under 12 and un- der 14. David Burke won the un- der 14 race and the team, with strong performances from Stephen McBride, Jamie Washington and Craig Dowling came third. In the under 12 race we also had the individual win- ner, Andrew Ross, who led us to a second place behind Hillfield. vv. ' FRONT ROW: Washington, Burke, Ross II. BACK ROW: Dowling, Pike, Mr Nightingale, Hickling, McBride II. With some of our younger run- ners gaining plenty of ex- perience, we should look forward to several strong years and con- tinued success. The Tournament Team In December Appleby hosted the annual under fourteen hockey tournament. Teams from Lower Canada College, Ridley, St. An- drews, Crescent, St. George ' s, Hillfield, St. John ' s Ravenscourt and Appleby competed. The Appleby team, a com- bination of first and third hockey team members, played its first game against the favoured con- tender, Lower Canada, and lost six-four. The next game ended with a five-three victory over St. John ' s Ravenscourt. Next day Appleby played Ridley to a five-three victory. Our semi- final was against the team ' s nemesis, Lower Canada. Playing perhaps their best hockey of the whole tournament, Appleby sur- prised Lower Canada in a thrilling 6-2 victory. FRONT ROW: Dorion, Freeman, Cockell. McConnell I, Schmidt. CENTRE ROW: McKenzie, McGuiness. Giffin, Sopinka. Gilroy. BACK ROW: Mr. Singer. Sutherland, McNair, Bates. The final game was played at Maple Leaf Gardens against the other finalists, St. George ' s. Despite the fact that it was Ap- pleby ' s third game, the team strolled to a 11-2 victory, and the championship - the first Appleby had ever won at any level of com- petition. The team members were: Wright, Sutherland, Griffin, McNair, Dorion, Freeman, MacKenzie, Bates, Mueller II, Schmidt, Gilroy, Sopinka, Cockell, McGuiness and McConnell. Congratulations to the team and coach Dave Singer. The First Hockey Team From a group of unknowns, this year ' s team produced an 8 win and 3 loss, and 1 tie record. The first six games, including a two- game " road " trip to Ashbury College, produced victories. At this point, the team lost the ser-_ vice of its Captain and leading scorer, Mike Sutherland, through injury. The remaining players slowly learned the meaning of true team work. Under the leadership of Glenn Wright, the team went on to a record of two wins, two losses and one tie. The boys seemed to gel I as a team with everyone pulling his weight. Offensively, the team scored sixty-six goals. All three lines - Wright, Griffin, Sutherland; McBride, MacKenzie, Hickling; Freeman, Dorion, and McNair - achieved balance. Defensively, FRONT ROW: Cockell, Freeman, McBride II, Sutherland, Wright, Giffin, Smith, Dorion. BACK ROW: Mr. Singer, Appleby, Mueller, Washington, Hickling, Durst, McNair. McKenzie.

The 1974-75 First Hockey Team was successful, not only from the aspect of wins and losses, but also because the boys learned to play as a team. 147 The Second Hockey Team This year the second team did not have a satisfactory season with respect to its won-loss record. However, as the season progressed, the team members learned many lessons and im- proved their skills considerably. At the beginning there was much room for improvement; we had difficulty with our shooting, the forwards were unable to connect their passes and work together, and we could not clear the puck out of our own end. But Mr. Tur- ner taught us to correct our mistakes. With respect to the enjoyment of playing the game, the season was quite satisfactory. Playing particuarly well throughout were Mark Lanch, Greg Beckett, Chris Scott, John Gilchrist, Steven and Ian Fife, and the Captain, Dave FRONT ROW: McGuiness. Johnson, Gilchrist. Gray. Gratton, Stevenson. Gilroy, Morgan, Fife II. BACK ROW: Dowling, Scott, Fife I, Hughes, Beckett, Lanch. Stewart, Johnston, Stark, Mr. Turner. Stevenson. Our goalies, ' Louis Gratton and Jim McConnell, played very well considering the circumstances. We were a rather large team, The Third Hockey Team with eighteen players, but everyone had a good chance to show what he could do on the ice. Without doubt, we were very weak on defense; we began at least half of our games two goals down because of defen- sive errors. However, we managed to pull through in the end, as can be judged by our record of seven wins and two losses. Our Captain, Pat Bates, always gave a strong effort and scored several of our most important goals. Scott Campbell, Craig Fretwell, and Bruce Burchmore contributed an enormous amount to the team effort as did our ' cor- ner man ' Conrad Schmidt. Mike Mueller topped the goals scored chart with 16, and played with great ability all through the season. Our goaltenders. David Toles 148 FRONT ROW: Filipovic, Copestick, Toles, Phillips.

Mr. Boyd, Sopinka. and Simon Weisbaum, did much to keep us in the game when our forwards weren ' t scoring and the defense was weak, and deserve vast amounts of credit for this. All in all, it was an excellent season for the Thirds, and it is hoped that we will be able to equal our record next year, or even better it. D.K.R.B. The First Cricket XI The team has had a most en- joyable and successful season, in spite of the fact that it started very badly on the playing fields of U.C.C. on the last bitter Satur- day in April. As the sun came out and warmed our backs every player began to show real im- provement. Our success has been built on a varied array of skilful bowlers. Tim Pike, after converting from a stumbling run-up into a rhymical approach to the wicket, developed speed and accuracy. He successfully demoralized most opposing batsmen. Opening with him was Hueton, a wily and accurate left arm bowler who teared batsmen ' s off stumps with tireless accuracy. The openers were ably supported by Gerald Baiz ' fast improving off- spinners, Glen Wright ' s steady medium pace swingers and cut- ters, and David Burke ' s left arm in-swingers. Stephen McBride was a reliable ' stopper ' behind the stumps, but in such a short season he never learned to stand up and ' attack ' the batsman from behind. By contrast the batting showed itself to be woefully inept at the beginning of the season. We scraped 53 miserly runs in an- swer to U.C.C. ' s 140 in our first game, and a timid 39 in response to their 50 in the return. However with the arrival of May and the sun things changed. At Ridley, after being put in, we declared at 95 for 7 and against S.A.C. we scored 36 for 2 in response to their 33. The climax of the season was undoubtedly our match with T.C.S. In response to their 103 for 4, we collapsed feebly to 14 for 3. Yet Glen Wriaht and Tim Pike refused to FRONT ROW: Burke. Durst, Holland. Washington. Baiz. Gray. BACK ROW: Mr. Nightingale, Wright, McBride, Smith, Pike, Hueton, Stevenson, Bund- schuh. Jamie Washington then came in and with great composure set about the bowling so that by the time he was out the score was 95 and victory was in sight. David Stevenson and Gerald Baiz scored the remaining runs together, and the victory was by a margin of 4 wickets with about five minutes to spare. i The final game was with the Fathers who, hearing of our fear- some attack, turned out to prac- tice in the nets. As a result they showed their power by scoring a massive 143 in response to which the school could only raise 86. Thus ended a season marked by tremendous enthusiasm and a fine team spirit form a group of boys who each gave their very best and followed the directions of their captain, Stephen McBride, with great good humour. M.N. surrender meekly; they settled down to play correctly and carefully, but they hit the loose balls hard. When Wright was out the score was 64, and they had made 50 fine runs together. 149 The Second Cricket XI An enthusiastic and lively bunch of boys assembled for the first practice in a biting wind. Most had never played Cricket before. Some learned how to bat, some how to bowl, and they all learned how to field and catch. A cricket ball into an ungloved hand from 50 feet hurts when you are cold. We lost the first two matches to Upper Canada College in the cold of the early season while we were still learning the game. Our best games were against Ridley with whom we shared the points, and against Hillfield whom we defeated easily. The final game of the season was an exciting and very close game with TCS which we just lost. FRONT ROW: Brooks. Cole, McGuiness, Jaciw, Johnson. Gilchrist, Sutherland. Fife I.

Stephen Fife, Tom Hughes, Barry Kay, Adam Boyd, David Dorion, Jon Stark each scored ten runs or more in an innings. This means that there is a good nucleus of run-getters for the first team next year. Of our bowlers, Bill Griffin, Adam Boyd, Matthew Thurley and Paul Stewart have all taken wickets, so it looks as though next year ' s attack will have variety and skill. The general level of enthusiasm has been very high so that the future prospects look very bright. 150 The Fourth Cricket XI Led by Captain Louis Gratton, the Fourth team enjoyed a highly successful season. We began on a winning note by defeating U.C.C. Fourth team by two wickets. Our two games against Ridley were both successes. It is noteworthy to mention that in the second of the two games, Meredith scored seventeen runs and took nine wickets, thanks to Morgan ' s five fine catches. Next, we travelled to Hillfield and after a dismal batting effort managed to squeak a victory due to some alert fielding. Our final opponent of the season was U.C.C. Third team.

Their two big blue eyes were open wide and their black and white ears were sticking up. On the screen were the two best teams: the Buffalo Bears against the Dog Gon Dogs. Ralph, the older cat, and his sister, Pat, were very excited. All their soft fur was sticking straight up. Meanwhile, their best friend, Charlie Chester, the old witch ' s black cat, was also watching the game in his house. That old witch is nagging again! ' murmured Charlie, ' I wish she ' d be quiet so I can hear the game. ' He turned his attention to the TV set. ' Yeh! We scored, we scored. ' (We, meaning his favourite team, the Buffalo Bears.) The raccoon pair were also wat- ching the game with delight. Every time a player had a home run, they ' d yell and scream. (Even if it was not on their favourite team). Peter ' s black paws were always in the way of the TV screen. The excitement was so much for him, that he would annoy his poor brother. Then his twin brother, John, began to retaliate by punching him out of the way. John yelled, ' I ' ll get you for that! ' One could hear yells and screams everywhere. Even out- side! Mrs. Scrooge, the old dog next door, who heard the commotion, telephoned the raccoons com- plaining that they had been making too much noise. ' I ' m trying to go to sleep! ' she ex- claimed in an English voice, ' and you are disturbing my peace. ' Her glasses were down to her long pointy nose and she was still wearing her yellow party hat from last night. Suddenly the announcer shouted from the TV screen, ' The game is over! ' Just as quickly, everything became quiet. Even John and Peter calmed down trying to hear who won. In the peace that followed Mrs. Scrooge finally fell asleep. Charlie was standing up and crying because he did not know the final score. Neither did Ralph and Pat, who were an- noyed. The day ended. Everyone went to bed and was soon fast asleep. Stuart Taylor He had been running for a tedious period of time in the scorchingly torrid sun. Far down the track I saw his vague outline emerging from a mirage. Since the sun was in my eyes, he ap- peared to me as a silhouette. As he approached, I saw his face fury, scarlet red with rivulets of sweat pouring down his face and splashing into his rotating legs. I saw signs of excruciating pain, torture, and agony. His muscles were rippling as they unwound his great titanic energy within him. He was a man of great stamina, staggering on and on, out of sight. Peter Jaciw As the strong wind blew through the litter-filled street, the scraps of paper formed eddies. They swirled on the dusty sidewalk and danced through the muddy gutters. The people passed by not even noticing these tiny tor- nadoes. There were candy- wrappers, potato-chip bags, Christmas wrappings, even a crumbled exam paper. The neglected trash whirled through the down-town streets and onto the public park. But the people of the city paid no attention to the swirling scraps for they were just the brown autumn leaves of the city streets. Stephen Durst As the two boys walked down the dark gloomy valley, they heard a faint rattling sound that made their spines tingle. The sound became louder and louder. The two terrified boys darted down the road hoping to escape the terrifying sound. They ran until they were exhausted; by now the sounds of the chains could not be heard. The two exhausted boys continued to walk down the road. A few minutes later, the rat- tling sound could be heard again. The two boys looked at each other. One boy said, ' Let ' s hide between them crates over there. ' The boys both agreed. The eerie sound of the chains came closer and closer. The cold sweat rolled down their faces. The sound was just about upon them. They peered out between the two boxes. To their amazement, it was a dog. The rattling sound was the chain, for the dog must have escaped from his master, dragging the chain behind. The two boys heaved a sigh of relief and patted the dog in joy. Ian Fife One beautiful morning I got up. I noticed that a farmer was carrying me to his house. I was very pleased that I was moving because when I was at the store, it was dusty and there was always a smell of oil and gasoline. Here I smelt the wife ' s 157 perfume and they kept me nice and clean. Then suddenly the girl picked me up viciously. I said, ' Hey, I ' m not a rock, I ' m a pretty intelligent little, little potato. ' When she gave me to her mother, she carefully peeled my skin; it hurt a little but not very much. Then she was reaching for my bath tub, but in your language it is a pan. She put some oil in the bath tub to keep my skin soft. I guess. When I came out of the bath tub, that vicious girl had her mouth wide open to eat me. She stuck her fork in me then it was sudden darkness. When that happened I said to myself, ' My mother always told me I should have been a doctor, but I had fun being a potato anyway. ' So bye for now. Jamie Piasecki I laughed and sat down beside the three servants, thinking Olipur was playing some sort of joke. Olipur sat down behind me. He seemed to utter some strange words and suddenly, all five of us were flying through the air. Within minutes, we were over the Indian Ocean and flying below the clouds. Suddenly we saw land and Olipur shouted, ' We are nearing our homeland! ' ' See, below, there is India. ' Before I knew it we were over Calcutta. Our carpet began to descend and we landed at the foot of the Himalayan Mountains at a place called Katmandu. In the distance, I spotted Mt. Everest rising 29,000 feet into the clouds. Our expedition party was there to greet us and we set out im- mediately with our horses and gear to venture into the moun- tain country of the Himalayas. Suddenly we heard a fearful scream. Some of the Snowmen had spotted us and were scram- bling up the mountainside after us. To our surprise, there was Olipur landing beside us on his magic carpet. ' Quickly, ' he said, ' climb aboard with the treasure. ' We jumped aboard and were barely able to take off before the Snowmen reached us. Soon we were back in Katmandu, happy to have safely completed the expedition. Olipur was so pleased that he gave me the box of beautiful jewels that I now have in my trophy case. I will always remember this adventure as my most exciting expedition. David Toles There it was, peering into the black, foggy mist. A black hairy horrifying creature. I ran for my 12 gauge shotgun, but it was no use; there was no bullet. It was getting closer, and closer, scarier and scarier. I ran as fast as I could but it was gaining on me. It grabbed me. I was doomed now. I turned around and it was my wife Agatha. Paul Mitchell Of course, ' I said. ' When will I start packing my bags? ' Right away, ' said Olipur. ' Our ship is ready to leave at once. ' I left the house with the old man Olipur and his three tall Indian servants. Outside on my lawn I noticed, to my surprise, a beautifully coloured oriental car- pet. ' Step aboard my ship, ' said Olipur, ' and be seated with your bags. ' For the next five days we travelled over trails and moun- tain ridges never seen before by man. We entered the forbidden country of the hairy White Snowmen who, according to Olipur, were guarding his hidden treasure. Our mission was to gather up the hidden treasure at night when the Snowmen were least likely to be standing guard. We had to travel at night so that the giant white creatures would not spot us. In fact, the thought of them made us shiver with fear. Finally, after eight days, we reached our destination. The treasure was in a deep cave guarded by two of these terrible Snowmen. We decided that night to go up the mountain behind them and come down the secret passageway into the cave. Olipur waited behind while we proceeded with our plan. We found the large boulder that blocked the secret passageway. The servants lowered me by means of a rope tied about my waist. Quickly, I loaded the bags of precious jewels and gold into large baskets which the servants hauled to the surface. I came pounding around the last turn in the annual cross-country race. My heart seemed to skip a beat as I trudged on. The home stretch at last! ' I can ' t stop now, I .... I can ' t stop now, ' , I kept repeating to myself. As I plod- ded along, I stumbled, picked myself up and quickened my pace. My legs felt like rubber bands, that had been broken into a million pieces, and my head and arms felt like weights tied to my body. I foundered over the finish line only to find I had come in last place.

GHIA The Design: Ford Granada is designed to help deal with such problems as crowded roads, increased fuel cost and maintenance. Granada is about Wi feet shorter and a quarter ton lighter than most mid-size cars. So you can expect excellent gas mileage. Yet there ' s family-size room inside. The Economics: The Comforts: A luxurious car today has to earn its keep. Granada doesn ' t back away from that fact. Its trim design helps reduce needless weight and excessive fuel consumption. Granada ' s base engine is a Six that ' s economical and easy to maintain. Gas- saving radial ply tires. Granada is planned for riding comfort and durable good taste. Appointments have such a rich look you ' ll wonder whether you ' re admiring the top-of-the- line. Supple vinyl trim is standard, and both front seats recline. Granada Ghia provides extra styling and elegance.
