■■iK . ' ' ■M , irmi m®w M MiB m ®(t) mw-mv E. L. Bott 1905-1977 MR. E. LESLIE BOTT Mr. Bott was born and brought up in England. His education in that country included a thorough grounding in music, in which art he attained proficiency as a pianist and organist. He emigrated to Canada in the late twenties to join relatives in Ancaster, Ontario. In the early thirties, he went out to the West Coast to teach at Brentwood School, B.C., where he was a housemaster for fourteen years. Mr. Bott joined the Appleby Staff in 1945 to teach general subjects in the Junior School. It was soon recognised that his forte was music, and he became Organist and Choirmaster, a position he filled until his retirement.. In 1953, the Coronation Year, he was invited to take his Choir on an English tour, during which they performed in many famous cathedrals and churches. Besides his contribution to Appleby ' s musical programme, Mr. Bott has filled many positions, such as Librarian, Editor of the Argus, Old Boys ' Secretary, and Director of Junior Plays. For a few years, when Colley House was overcrowded, he was Housemaster in an annex, located in a building which was known as " The Shack " . Many Old Boys will recall pleasant memories of that small, happy family. To demonstrate their respect and affection. Old Boys and friends filled the Chapel at Mr. Bolt ' s Memorial Service. We at the school respectfully dedicate this volume of the Argus to his memory. Joi£Ptil. ,lj .

It ' s unfortunate that it doesn ' t have a hundred hands as well. Instead, while the himdred clicking eyes capture life fragments of each year, ten hands have to cut and carefully, place each chosen sticky-backed moment. And one at limch, cajoling, has to get words, commitments and time, on paper and otherwise, from the initially eager. These run into each other, becoming like the gray smudges left on your hands after reading the newspaper. Everyone is everybody else. For now, each report carries the same poignant, bittersweet memories, out- standing moments and players, platitudes, statistics, in-jokes and gratitude to the coach, which is how it should be. It is funny how each year and team seems to be better than the last or, similarily, how the junior school boys seem to get smaller each year. Ultimately , I suppose, teams will explode from not being able to cope with such incredible feelings of self-wonderfulness and jimior school boys wall shrink completely out of existence. It puts me in mind of the line from " TIME TABLE " . We are all guilty of it. I think the yearbook is better than in years past and this year ' s, in particular, is probably the best, or, at least the one with the best creative intentions, that I have seen. Some things which are worth noticing this year, apart from the strangely shaped " S " on the cover which has been there for quite a while, are the use of new and varied photographic techniques, spot colour, type sizes and colours, and the literary section, containing the winners of the literary contest which represent the best submitted work in the school, designed solely by Mr. Snowden whose other major creative work is currently on display in the east wing of Walker House. Perhaps the major reason the book is set apart from those of previous years is that the actual editors, Dave Green and Rob Cartotto, are competent photographers and work well in the dark room which means that they don ' t have to rely on some photographer ' s interpretation of their demands; they can carry out their concepts from beginning to end themselves. This, ultimately, is the only way to produce a cohesive yearbook. Future editors should find themselves forced to concentrate on and believe in their designs and ideas, which is really how it should be. To this end, hopefully, some of Mr. Snowden ' s idealism, enthusiasm and perception will be infused into future and prospective editors, contributing writers and photographers.

An emphasis on rigorous academic standards has produced gratifying results at the top level; of 39 boys in Grade 13, 38 have been accepted at University, 1 1 have Ontario Scholarships, and 2 have highly coveted Freshman Scholarships - one to Harvard and one to Western. Further to this, in our athletic encounters our teams as a whole have good results: indeed, without hsting statistics, if one were to give points on the basis of standings in I.S.A.A. Leagues in all sports, Appleby will have a larger overall total than any other I.S.A.A. School. These results alone, without going into all the other activities we do - Drama, Art, Music, Debating, etc. - would seem to be very encouraging. While I congratulate those among the Masters and the Boys who have worked so hard to achieve them, I would urge us all not to get their importance out of perspective. No one will deny that it is pleasant to get scholarships, and good examination results, and a series of athletic successes; but really they are no criterion by themselves as to whether a School is in fact a good one. hideed I think that a top flight School should always be wary of short term results; probably results which can be seen and estimated are for the most part of httle lasting value - and those in fact which are worth anything are unassessable until long afterwards. Examination results are fine, but more important than these is whether, each year, students are graduating who have a burning desire to acquire knowledge for its own sake, and who have developed the intellectual courage required to pursue truth doggedly and then, having found it, to stand by it; and whether we have given the great majority an awareness of and an appreciation for the creative disciplines - art, music, drama, etc. - which wall grow within them and will provide a civilizing influence upon them throughout their lives. Athletic results are fine, but more important than these is whether we have extended all our boys to the degree which will enable them to endure physical hardship; and whether we have instilled in the great majority a genuine respect for the body, and a desire - so sincere that it wall last all their lives - to keep it as healthy and as fit as possible. hi the hectic merry-go-round of Appleby hfe do we as a School spend sufficient time and energy on the nurturing of the most important quaUties in character - those which, if well planted, will last all our Uves and will make the difference between a great Ufe and an average life; such as honesty - developing that resolve in one to do what is honest simply because it is right, and not because someone is looking; equanimity - training the ability to keep an even temper regardless of the provocation; charity - instUling the desire to defend the weak and to be kind to all; and unselfishness - developing an innate desire to serve others less fortunate than ourselves. These are the results which are unassessable for a long time - but these, I think, are the important ones. Wherever an Old Boy, great or humble, rich or poor, is patiently doing his duty, Uving according to his principles, and trying in whatever way he can to serve his Conununity, there - and only there - will be found the true evidence as to whether or not the School is a great one. For a school then to achieve this greatness it must do several things; it must cultivate awareness and sensitivity in the appreciation of all that is good; it must encourage in- dependence of mind, and develop confidence and courage to reject the tawdry and the vulgar and the obscene; and it must introduce boys, even while at School, to the problems which face the society of the day, and convince them of their obhgation to do something about solving them. In conclusion I must add the point which makes it all possible - 1 do not beUeve that such far reaching and truly important results can be achieved without the background of a rehgious beUef : for God is the one eternal Truth, and His judgements are the only judgements which transcend the fashions of the day. Hence the importcince of the Chapel and what happens in it. Here, if nothing else, boys can withdraw for a moment and pause to think; here we can learn to listen and to pray, to keep our consciences ahve and growing, and to receive into ourselves the strength of the Spirit which will train our judgement, enlarge our vision, and strengthen our will. For as we are told in the Book of Proverbs; " a reverence for God is the beginning of wisdom " . liil m FRONT ROW: Messers. Manbert. Richardson, Washington. Smith, Dickens, Larson, Nightingale.

The year gone by has been by far my best and I ' m sure the rest of the graduates feel the same way. This year the school witnessed athletic cham- pionships, magnificent goal- tending feats by a round, plump youth who called himself " Daver the Saver " and finally and most importantly, the tremendous sense of friendship everyone conveyed to each other. Friend- ship is the key to opening all doors. There is nothing greater than having a friend for the good times or for when the going gets rough. Friendship breaks down all barriers between people, thus allowing for much closer relationships. After everyone leaves today you will no doubt be glad that the school year is over, but then again the great majority will miss many of their friends. But remember friendship is never hindered because of distance and time. True friendship goes on forever. The school spirit this year was extraordinary and a great deal of it can be attributed to the Grade 13 ' s. They are a bunch of guys who never let up. I feel that they gave the school something to be proud of. Their stay is finished now and in order for the school to continue as successfully as it has done for the past two years, the boys coming up through the system must fill in where the graduates left off. This will un- doubtedly happen because of the type of boys each one of you is. Next year many of the graduates will hopefully continue their education, though some may just take a year off and work. Maybe even one or two like myself will pursue a career in hockey. As you all know my chances would be slim to nil. In any case, each man graduating today will be left alone to decide his own future. All I hope for is that everyone chooses the right route and does not have to look back upon the past. To the boys of the school I would just like to say you are a great group of individuals, and for all it is worth, participate fully in everything you are capable of doing. There is no end to the goals you can attain: you all proved that this year. And finally to the teachers who care for each and every boy here. With men like yourselves no one would have anyone to turn to in times of strife. I appreciate what you have done for these boys and I thank you. Guys: thanks for all the good times and from the graduates and myself best wishes to you all next year! Thank you. ' •y: ' : ' ' ' : ' : - ' DAVID ASTWOOD Dave Astwood was with us for only one year, but in that time he quickly gained the friendship of everyone in class. Dave ' s natural abihty in academics has earned him his golden optimates and an Ontario scholarship. Since he was from Bermuda, Dave did not play football or hockey, but waited for cricket where he was a prominent member of the team. David ' s cleverness and ability to adapt so quickly to new surroundings should enable him to be successful at whatever he chooses to do. We wish him the best of luck in the future. DONALD BENSON Don as " Bean " here for four years. During this time he has developed and grown into an honest and well respected member of Walker House. His strength of character and popularity raised him up to the postion of prefect in his final year. However his abilities spread into many other fields as well. The football team has found Don invaluable for two years, thus he gained a spot on the record board. Don has also been on the senior squash team, receiving his colours for the last two out of three years. This year Don was the captain of the squash team and led them to another I.S.A.A. championship. Don attempted Rugby at the senior level this year, helping the team many a time with his experience at touch judging. Next year Don intends to travel around Europe to work. Good luck Europe and good luck Don! DESMOND BURKE Des is a bonafide member of Appleby, having been with the college for nine years and dating back from the era before the resource centre, pool and arena. His stay in the junior school might best be described as uneventful; it was not until he joined the seniors that he discovered the pool. This was to become his aquatic habitat for five years, during which he was on the first swim team, received his colours three times and captained the winning squad twice. On land, he also participated solidly in soccer, harriers and rugger. Des belonged to the pioneering group of ER students and last year he returned to the Northern Campus as an instructor. His leadership ability was also demonstrated as a Walker House Prefect. On the extra-curricular side, Des is frequently searching for unusual records to add to his unique collection, leisure reading, pencil-sketching as well as doing the " dago " . His diligence as a student and amiabihty as a person will stand him in good stead for his future at Queens or Western. H Tn KEN CARPENTER Ken- Bud or " Bub " as many of his friends call him has been at the Apple as long as anyoi can remember. Truly one of Appleby ' s oldest veterans, it is now Ume for him to leave v During Ken ' s ten years he has established himself as one of the more amiable and dependab members of our community. Ken ' s academic talents glowed steadily as the result of ha work and showed with his being on " unsupers " for the past five years. During his yea here. Ken played many varied sports, he was a staunch member of the Harriers and Tra and Field teams, a regular member of the squash league and spent one year with the U- rugger squad. Never a brilliant sportsman, he nevertheless always gave his best. Next ye Ken plans to attend Western and we at Appleby sincerely wish the best of luck to this fL gentleman in his future endeavors. PAUL E ' raERINGTON Paul came to us in grade 11. and was tossed immediately into the " pit " , so to speak. His year in the basement of Walker House was a rude welcome to Appleby, but an educational one. Ether was our link with England, and the " civilized " Ufe that he maintained existed therein. An easy-going fellow, except when it comes to the honour of the " Empire " which he defended to the fringes of fanaticism. Not just limiting himself to academic and intellectual pursuits (he frequently made the Unsupervised Study List), Paul was also an athlete of some note, as the record board will defend. Ether played soccer (well), and rugger (not so weU) as well as being an adequate tennis player. Paul ' s green game socks were an inspiration to us all. as was his love hfe. which kept us constantly laughing. Always neatly groomed and well dressed, you can often find Paul in front of his over-worked mirror, putting right any minor flaw in his hair. Basically. Ether was an " all rounder " , easy to get along with and besides a questionable attraction to leather, a great chap! We wish him all the very best in the years to come, but a word of warning Paul- stay away from those loose women! f . L " raDON FOURNIER Lyndon has been partially with us for four years, and during his stay was always a ci scientious student, making the unsupervised study list frequently. He has graced bot h I second soccer and second hockey teams, and the grade 13 tennis ehte with his winning wa and is an accomphshed Cross-Country runner. Lyndon ' s true redeeming quality, however his good-natured humour. Lyndon has always made a good time seem much better. Trying reform his ways. Lyndie became one of Appleby ' s premier Progressive Conservative fai fuls. Those who knew him well will agree that Lyndon was always a party man. He crown his Appleby career by participating in many extra-curricular activities: he was a stalwi member of the ubiquitous film club, a devoted member of the WTFAC, and a regular on Softball field. Lyndon will long be remembered by all for his entertaining wit and ways, a his knack for seeking out and working his way into tight situations. We wish Lyndon luck his planned career as a Chartered Accountant. iMARK GASKIN Mark, " Pork " , " Houdini " , whatever, is never at a loss for words. He speaks what he thinks is fight and does not let others sway his views. A respect is gained from tliis which many around .um admire. Pork, when not attending to his schoolwork, could be found on the First Football, Sockey and Cricket teams. Contrary to popular belief, Mark was the first Joe WiUy Namath in the school, sporting a pair of white RideU cleats. Along with this he wore a Raccoon coat, adding to the image of number one " hot dog " . His attitude towards the younger boys in the •ichool should be something worth remembering. The boys in the dorm gained a feeling of eing " somebodies " because of the fatherly image he conveyed to them. It is a young man Uke lark that adds to the intense spirit in a school like Appleby. He is never asked to do things, he mst does them. The school benefits immensely from boys such as Mark. If one was to speak of success in the future, one would surely be speaking of Mark. Who will ever forget Mark and what he stands for. IAN GIRODAY A young man came here this year from the west proclaiming his old school in the prairies and modestly showing us his seemingly unlimited talents he had been taught there. It must have been some school. We were soon to learn that Ian was a very natural athlete as well as an exceptional student. He won his colours in hockey as well as receiving the " Bic " Wilson Memorial Trophy for the M.V.P. of the team. He was also a hard working and valuable member of the first Football and Rugby teams. He also showed himself as an established swimmer, basketball player, as well as a runner, winning the cross-country race this year. In academics, Ian earned his gold optimates as well. Above all these achievements, he was knowm as a cheerful, easy-going guy who was well respected and well Uked by everyone. Ian, if you do as well in the future as you did in one year at Appleby you vrill surely succeed. Appleby will miss your drive, determination, and the example you have shown to others. Take csre and the best of luck! PAUL GRIMES -1 iPeege " has been here for eight years managing to take two years off in between for a • Glimpse of the outside before deciding to return to the " Apple " . His achievements at the -chool are many, including colours on the open rugby squad as well as being an estabhshed Veteran of the first football team for three years. His skills at pubhc speaking also put him in ■the finals of this year ' s contest. Academically, well, he managed grade twelve unsupervised ks well as grade thirteen! Paul ' s many " extra-curricular " activities are what took his in- terests away from his school work and they took the most time as well as being the most fun! Paul ' s sense of humour was much appreciated in many a situation. His cheerfulness and general camaraderie with all the other boys was sincere and warm-hearted. We wish Paul he best of luck in the future. STEVE HALL Steve Hall alias " Herb " has been at the College for five years. Herb was the leader of our Montreal contingent virithin the school. He has done so much for the healthy tone of the school on both athletic teams and behind the scenes. He played on both the first football and the rugby teams for three years, gaining his colours Ln football all three years. His greatest at- tribute though, was his willingness to help behind the scenes with the numerous dances, plays and operettas. Steve ' s presence will surely be missed next year. This year. Herbie also was persuaded to undertake the task of being a chapel warden and the school bouncer. The first hockey team drafted him as manager and his spirit and humour added to the team ' s closely knit play. No one will ever say that Steve did not give a hundred percent for his school. Next year he plans to work over in Norway for the shipping industry. Steve, you have left your mark and it will never be forgotten. ALASDAIR HALLIDAY " Doc " has not left much undone at Appleby during his five adventurous years here. Scholastics, athletics, acting, choir, and music are all among his many and varied ac- complishments. Strict and fair in his prefectorial duties, he has handled the infamous CoUey House four-bedder deck admirably. When looking for Al it is not wise to go to his room, rather to the chapel, gym, stage, Riviera, or even outside, since he lends his time to so many ac- tivities. However, long after his colours, optimates and activities are forgotten. Doc will be remembered for his great personality and likeableness among his mates and wards alike. Unlike the rest of his activities, he has not had to work hard at this- it comes naturally. For this, we will all miss him at Appleby next year. Good luck at Harvard Doc. JOHN HAMMILL John has been at the school for three short, but impressive years. If not for some head injuries along the way. John would certainly have added strength to both the first Football and Rugby teams. He did play on the Football team in Grade 11. John ' s real love though, was hockey. There was no better hockey player in the school than John. His very presence on the ice would surely make things happen. His skill and sportsmanship were unequalled. Unfortunately, John injured his kn ee half way through his final year and was sidelined for the duration of the season. Here his personality really showed through. Because of his leadership and en- thusiasm towards the team, every player gave him their highest respect. John will always be remembered for " skipping town " occasionally, but this was his forceful character. John may decide to work next year, but hopefully he will continue his promising hockey career. HUGH JACKSON Sir Hugh is the most business-minded of this year ' s crop of graduates. A double winner in the Stock Market game, Hugh is preparing for a career at the hehn of Omnico - his huge in- ternational conglomerate. Hugh is an accompUshed photographer, who on more than one occasion has bailed out the Argus with his quick shutter or steady hands in the dark room. When not peering through a few inches of lenses or making like a mole, Hugh fin ds time to run a few miles every day. His best race is the 1500 metres, where he holds the school record. Hugh has always been competitive in the annual cross-country race. Hugh is the college expert on Formal Fever having been ravaged by it until a mysterious individual known only as the Airhead accepted his invitation. Good-bye Hugh, and remember that even if haste makes waste, to be indecisive is folly. NICK JACKSON Nick, or " Jack " , or even " Wack " , has just finished seven years at the College. Nick stands about five feet clear, but seems a lot shorter. Even so, size did not hinder Nick from par- ticipating on the first soccer, basketball and rugby teams. However, in basketbaU, he was able to use every inch of his size to pose an awesome scoring attack. The opposing teams shuddered at his very presence! When Nick first entered the Senior School, he was very reticent about an activity called the " Cadets " . But through rigourous training and tireless efforts he managed to win " Kid Cader " . Nick ' s stay is all over now, but who will ever forget the night in grade 1 1 when this loveable bush clogged the sink on the Annex Deck. Good luck in the future httle guy! STEVE JOHNSON Tucked away in the corner of the CoUey House top deck, Uved one of the Appleby ' s true nice guys. Soft spoken, funny, and just plain nice, describe " Qua " the best. Sports-wise, Qua has tried everything; after playing tennis for three years, Steve decided that he would never play at Wimbledon so he tried to satisfy his tennis desires on the track team. He played on the second soccer team and this year was his fifth year on league hockey. Steve was a lieutenant in the cadet corps. Academically, Steve has been on the unsupervised hst since grade 10. Steve hopes to attend Western, studying natural science next year, and after that will eventually study marine biology. With Steve ' s good nature we know that he will be suc- cessful. All the best in the future, Steve. DAVE JOSSELYN To look at Dave, one would think he is one who spends his evenings watching television and his mornings reading the newspaper. Nothing could be further from the truth. Excluding his flair for social events, Dave ' s greatest love was sports. He has been in the net for a couple of years now, as First Soccer ' s goahe. I always though he could do just as well out, but he seems to like it there. It is quite secure, he says, behind two or three lines of defense and it is only rarely that any danger presents itself. The only trouble with his situation is that it is next to impossible for him to score, and it always seemed to me that it was better to score than to stop someone else from doing so. But. he certainly made up for it in basketball, while " Reef " and " Snake " were having difficulties during the season. As well as scoring at every opportunity, Dave was unselfish in his set-ups, particularly at the end of the year. And so, into cricket, which was, I believe, Dave ' s best game. Though lacking basketball ' s punk-inspired frenzy, Dave managed to rise to every occasion with the self possession that a captain must have, Dave was not an all rounder, but he wielded a wicked bat and has saved many a run by op- posing batsman by his agile wicket keeping; when Dave was guarding the wicket, most batsman were forced to stay at home. Thanks to Dave for his unselfish giving of himself at all times. Good luck and best wishes for the future. ALANKEIL Alan has been at Appleby for eight years, officially living on grounds for the past three. Between coming and going through the rear entrance, he has been an excellent student, earning his gold optimates and season tickets for the unsupervised study Ust. Athletically, Alan has been truly outstanding in soccer and squash, securing his colours in both. His true love was tennis however, and after capturing the school trophy last year, captained and headlined our tennis team this year. Alan took a lead in the Operetta, and earned his termly long weekend by singing with the choir. Whether he joined to sing or fling is another question! Alan was a welcome and friendly fixture of various landmarks in OakviUe, and long vrill be remembered his tardy jog to the podium on receiving the Campbell essay prize last year. Alan was always ready to engage in conversation, and many a " bull " session was held under the red lamp that marked his abode. Alan plans on " filling " the gaps in the dental profession, and so Appleby wishes a fond farewell to one of our true " old " boys. HERMAN LAM Herman is an amazing individual. His willingness to " try " a new trick is unsurpassed by any of his peers. Over the past four years he has tried almost every sport the school has to offer. Last year he offered to act as cannon fodder for the U-16 football team in order to learn the game. He has also become a tennis player to be reckoned with, however, hockey is Her- man ' s game. Herman ' s ferocious style of play was instrumental in raising attendance at league games this year. Herman wrill go dovm in the annals of Appleby College as the first " chink " to inhabit the Northern Campus. After only his first week in Canada, he and his classmates were sent u p north for the first time. Well, that ' s a long story, but let ' s say he handled himself admirably, considering he had never even seen a canoe before. Late that year he related his experience in the north to the rest of the school in a very moving Chapel service. Like most of his countrymen. Herman is a hard worker. Only after a weekend with Alice will his Ughts go out before 12:00 p.m. Good-bye Herman and good luck in your en- deavors to become a C.A. JOSEPH LU When Joe joined us in grade 11, it was hard not to take an instant hking to him. With a per- petual grin and jovial manner, he was always ready for a joke. He could usually be found somewhere on campus with his twenty-five pounds of camera equipment of various sorts and descriptions around his neck, shooting anything, whether it moved or not. He was a major contributor to the high standard of photo work presented in the Argus. If Joe was not taking pictures, he was in the Art Studio creating, or in the music room playing his antique violin, both of which he did vnth impressive flare. Sometimes between these activities, he found time to study and hence to produce the type of marks others envy. Not only did we envy his marks, Joe also held the Walker House record for the most letters per week; here again he earned our envy. In vrinter, Joe swam wfith the first team and made the record board. Still, with all this on his plate, Joe kept his grin and easy-going manner. We all wish him the very best in the years to come. TOM LYTLE i Tommy Lytle is one of our all time greats. One of the last " Chamby ' s Chics " stiU aroimd, Tom has been at Appleby for nine years. He is always briimning with laughs and has added much spirit and good humour to the school, with his- rampaging jackhammer- priceless impressions of numerous Appleby masters, hockey players, and girls he has conquered. He is also the only person alive who can get up at 7:00 in the morning and still be late for breakfast forty-five minutes later; he claims he is just running behind schedule, but everyone knows the real reason. His most noticeable mark at Appleby is being the originator of that ever-increasing heap of clothes in his room, known as " Lytle Mountain " . When you are talking Tom Lytle, you are talking sports. A valuable forward on the first soccer team, a soUd member of the tennis club, and a big lanky winger on the first hockey team, who skated with the greatest agihty, he was one of Appleby ' s finest hockey players. He plans to attend university after taking a year off to " do a number " across the Atlantic. With his charming character, Tom will have no problems getting by in the future, and we hope to see him president of his own company some day. " Go get ' em slammer " . JOHN McCARTER J. B. McC. is one man who will never be lost in a crowd. No, he ' s not one of those. He ' s the exact opposite, his hair matches his brilliant personahty. As this year ' s head of Powells House, John has rarely been at a loss for words, especially during house meetings. J. B. is an active member in all sports, be it as a participant or a spectator. For the past three autumns, John played football and this year served as captain. When he is not dowm on the field breaking legs, he can sometimes be found retired to the more sophisticated surroundings of the music room. Actually, John ' s trumpet led many a cheer in the arena. Last year, J. B. captained the league to a successful season, but after a severe cut to the eye he decided to pursue a coaching career with the thirds. It is too bad that John was unable to pick up the game at an early age, for he surely would have been another Brian Glennie. For spring en- joyment, John plays rugger. However, his real spring sport is golf. Probably John ' s most memorable moment on the links occurred down in Florida where he defeated Graham Stuart by shooting a cool forty for nine holes. J.B. has become known for his desire to drink Ufe to the lees. While vacationing in Florida, a few of John ' s friends taught him how to play cricket. He didn ' t exactly take the game by storm although he did manage to bowl one maiden over. Sirenora Cowboy, and may your Ufe be a happy one. FRASER McKENZIE To capsulize a high school career such as Fraser ' s in just a few lines of writing is next to impossible. During his three years with us, he has involved himself in almost every facet of Appleby life and as a result has left behind a multitude of images by which he will be remembered. The soiled and tired rugby captain trudging off the field, proud of his cham- pionship team, the stern old general in Agatha Christie ' s " Ten Little Indians " ; the firm but nonetheless well-liked prefect; and, finally, the smiling, glassy-eyed fellow at the Riverside ordering just one more jug to make it an even seven. These and other pictures have endeared to us an athlete, a scholar and a friend. So long. Mac. It has been a good three years. TREVOR McMURCHY Trevor is number four of the McMurchy family to come to the " Apple " . " Clever Trevor " has been with us at Appleby for a mere two years. Despite this short duration of time, Trevor has managed to prove his stalwartness as an athlete by playing on the senior football, basketball and rugby teams. Perhaps his greatest athletic achievement other than " nailing " the Prince after the ball was kicked, was to crutch his way around the senior cross-country course while sporting a full leg cast (those crutchers will hate you next year Trevor!) Along with his many athletic attributes, Trevor has proven himself to be a good student, maintaining a steady average throughout his short career here at Appleby. Always cheerful and ready wdth a smile. Trev typifies the spirit felt among this year ' s graduating class. We ' ll be sorry to see you " cast-off " Trevor, and don ' t forget to give our regards to that young lady who seemed to like frequenting the place during the wee hours of the morning. Good luck and stay from those crutches! ROB MANBERT Robb6 will go down in Appleby history as the only student to spend two-thirds of his young life here. On top of this. Rob is the first third generation member to attend the College. He is highly above average in intelligence, and as equally outstanding in his desire to slack. Rob is an exceptional swimmer and his vigorous aquatic training has blessed him with a fabulous physique. Much to his enjoyment, girls do not seem to be able to resist him- thus his huge collection of personally autographed cheesecake photographs. Unfortunately his good luck with girls has removed from the world of mortals, thereby exposing him to a few em- barrassing incidents- witness the Sting and groping encounters in the Arena parking lot. It is too bad that Rob can ' t have a final summer in Oakville, but he must move quickly forward to Georgia Tech and we all wish him good luck, (watch out for Beach Babies!) DAVE MAXWELL In the seven years that Dave has been at Appleby, he has involved himself in many activities. Overlooking his ability to sleep through entire classes, Fonz has been a steady producer academically. Outside the classroom, Dave has been on the first football team for two years and this year was the general manager of the team. Dave was also a member of the track squad. In other activities, Dave proved himself as a capable scuba instructor and conducted the whole course this year. He has always been helpful as part of the Ughting crew for Ap- pleby ' s plays and operettas, and was a member of the Argus photography staff. Dave holds a new school record as the only person to have been recorded in the Argus as a graduate for two years in a row. This year he ' s on his way to study at the University of Guelph. Good luck, Dave. FRANK MERRILL How does one begin to describe Frankie H. MerUl. One could spend days trying to describe the contributions he has made to Appleby. The biggest impact Frank made on us had to be with his dynamic, bubbling personality. It is very safe to say that Frank did not have an enemy in all five years he spent with us. He enjoyed his sporting at and away from school. Some of his sports included football, hockey, rugby, girls, constant partying and making his first million. With that previously mentioned dynamic personaUty, Frank led the way with his exceptional performance in " The Jockey Club Stakes " and th M.C. of our annual talent night. Frank was runner-up in the armual public speaking contest and his speaking ability was greatly felt in the chapel several times this year. Frank is the kind of guy that will go places, if he can keep away from the broads once in a while. I ' ll tell ya,... we ' re going to miss him! LANG MOFFAT Lang ' s seven years as a boarder have enabled him to master the art of " deking out " . Lang is known to have mysteriously disappeared many a Thursday to 1 158 Lakeshore to engage in his own version of Thursday activities. The " Joe Namath " of the college, Lang was the first to wear white shoes. Although an unfortuante accident with an axe earned him the nickname " Stub " , Lang ' s balance was not affected and he excelled in aU sports. A key member of the 5- M defence in football, a hard-hitting winger in hockey and outside centre in rugby were among Lang ' s achievements. He gained his colours in football and rugby, as well as record board on all three. A competent student, Lang made the Unsupervised Study List in every year, it was only those long hours spent on the phone which kept him from his Optima tes! As a prefect in PoweU ' s House he was respected by all. Lang ' s future plans include Queens and then the formation of a company; incidentally, not to be called Leggs! KEITH MORRISON I can see it now. The camera pans back to take in the top field, the tennis courts and the gates. The tall, long-legged dude, with the mirror shades and an attempted afro struts slowly up the road, a basketball in one hand and a bit of paper in the other. The ball bounces once or twice, behind the back, between the legs, and the famihar movements take us back to those fleeting days of high school glory. As if sensing our approval, he turns, the sun glinting off plastic and teeth, and flicks a quick V ' s-up at the lad with the shaving cream birthday present, at Joh nny with the pin who wasn ' t so bad afterall, and at teammates and other friends. And then he turns back. He laughs (sometimes it is all you can do to squeeze out a laugh through clenched teeth and rigid jaws) a proper one, not choked up or dovim. He finds the memories of T.M. before football games, problems of prefectship and captaincies, difficulties of girlfriends and telephones, all funny now. Now he walks off into the sunset, the last strains of Sweet Georgia Brown falling about our ears, and we hear a laugh, it ' s nearly a laugh, but... JOHN PLATT " Sleep " has been at the old Apple nine years and during that time his presence has been widely felt. With his fiery red hair, it is difficult for anyone to miss him. He enjoyed his sports throughout the years here. He was a strong member of the first football, squash and rugby teams obtaining his colours in rugby. As is the same with many grade 13 ' s this year, John enjoyed the odd party now and then. By the way, John, is your house still standing? We hope so. John was very stable in the academic sphere as well. In grade 12 John was on the un- supervised study list from September to June. John made Hfe here very pleasant for a lot of people, and we truly will miss him. I guess he ' s tiarned another important " Paige " in his career. GARY REDMOND " Bogare " has been with us for eight years now and though not a scholar, he has managed to get on the unsupervised study list every year for the past five years. He has also been involved in hockey, tennis, and a variety of other sports during his stay here. We will always remember Gary as one of the three grade 12 boys apprehended on the famous Pumpkin Night episode, and we are sure Mr. Dickens will never forget having to pick them up from the police station at six a.m. Gary hopes to be taking off next year to experience the " real world " , and then on to university. But whatever the future holds, we wish Gary the best of luck. SHY AM SEEREERAM Shyam. or " Shyamaroons " , has been at the Apple for two short but sober years. He is our representative in Trinidad and can never stop raving about the wine and women of that tiny island in the Caribbean. Shyam played on the Second Soccer team and the First Cricket team, always adding a little colour to both. The first Basketball team asked him to accept a managerial position but because of numerous contract disputes he was only able to manage one game of their season. His distinguished West Indian accent and mannerisms make up the essence of his friendly personaUty. Shyam is planning to attend York University next year, but may decide to pursue a career in cricket for Pakistan in hopes of leading them once again to victory in the World Invitational Cricket Tournament being held in Guadalajara, Mexico, next year. All the best. CHUCK STACEY For seven years now. Chuck has done enough academic work to earn a place within the ehte gold optimates club, and athletically speaking, played his part on both the football and rugby teams. Now that we have the unimportant details out of the way, we can mention that Chuck has also served as a chapel warden this year, and was awarded his debating tie for services rendered. Chuck was also a co-editor of the Argus last year. For the past three years. Chuck has played major roles in the dramatic societies ' productions, crowning his theatrical career in the new Oakville Centre this year. Chuck ' s acting up was by no means limited to the stage, since he also managed a few performances in the classroom and in the Riverside. In addition, Chuck was an instructor in the Appelby Wayward Bound programme and was always co- ordinating well with his white socks. We wish Chuck well in his planned career as a nuclear physicist. GEORGE STOTT King George landed on the Appleby campus five short years ago. Attaining the highest level in academics was no problem for George as he breezed his way through the college. The " Nighthawk " was on many occasions found to be engaged in dubious activities off-campus, and not always legally. Finding himself in grade 13, George used the sports program to his ultimate advantage. Centering the first football team to many a victory. George then jumped to grade 13 squash, and capped it off by trying to win the tennis tournament. No sport was unconquerable to George as the cross-country aficionados were to learn. On Saturday nights George could be found anywhere there was a party, helping out the sales of Molson Inc. Long live the King! BRIAN STUART One might say that Brian has been fairly quiet during his eight year stint at Appleby. This is true for the most part, but give Brian a guitar and a little back-up rhythm and you ' ve got Woodstock all over again! Along with obvious musical talent, Brian can be proud of rising from the depths of Satis, to the heights of glory of the Optimates club. In between strumming his guitar, and keeping his on the history of Ancient Greece, Brian has managed to physically exert himself in the pool, or the track field, and on the soccer pitch, vrith his biggest con- tribution being that to the second soccer team. Brian is basically an easy-going guy, and v rill surely love to speak to you, providing there is beer on hand. This characteristic can be vouched for by a former grade 1 1 group, consisting of a few select individuals, who have long since been " retired ' from the Apple. But all kidding aside, we will be very sorry to see you leave Brian, even though hearing Jeff Beck at two in the morning is not exactly a lullaby! Good luck, and don ' t forget to drop us a line in between chords! DA ' VE SUCHANEK Dave has received his colours in hockey, cricket and football. He was also vice-captain of the two latter mentioned. However, these accomplishments are minor in comparison with many other things the " the httle fat kid " has accompUshed here. Dave once told a friend that he loved to make people laugh. As with Shakespeare ' s Falstaff, much of the time his peers are laughing at him, not with him. But, as Zuke will concede- who cares, as long as they are laughing. Dave ' s amazingly good nature is incomprehensible to many people. Who would think that the headboy would take the time or lower himself to toss cricket balls to a grade nine boy. Perhaps this is why he received the Vicker ' s Citizenship Award last year. Zuke is not only the nicest guy on campus, but according to him, the best looking (as he modestly admits). Oh, he is also the best goalie, even though he is the only one. Zuke was described by a fellow hockey mate as either being courageous or stupid, the comment was in jest, however everyone should know that Dave saved this year ' s first team the embarrassment of going from an excellent team to a shoddy bunch of hackers. Dedicated, warm and sincere are only a few words that describe Dave Such- (whatever his name is) and he is one nice guy who will inevitably finish first. M. J. THOMSON " M-er " , as Mark has been known from Day One at Appleby, is the scourge of Powell ' s House grade 11 deck. Always diligent- one of the few polite words Mitch and Nate have muttered about M. J. -he has proven to be a stern yet fair prefect. Mark was an exceptionally hard worker, who when the need arose was capable of producing excellent results. On top of this he was a good athlete who unfortunately was held back by illness and nagging injuries. Being a strong proponent of creative iron pumping, M. J. manages, not without a small degree of difficulty, to top off his image with a fashionably thick moustache when returning from long weekends. In his medical studies we all wish him good luck and certainly hope to see him return with a full growth to every Old Boys ' gathering. A ' RON WITHEY Even modest Ron would be the last to tell you, that he and two others bought Tom Lytle a new paint job. Ron ' s bravado behind the wheel carried into the world of sports. Small in stature but long on talent, Ron was one of the College ' s most accomplished athletes. Ron ' s versatility enabled him to play many positions and helped him to gain his colours in hockey, football and rugby. As a defenseman, Ron patterned himself after the great Denis Potvin and was the backbone of the defense. In football, Ron was moved from the backfield to guard, a move which didn ' t thrill Ron. However, Ron soon established himself as one of the team ' s top linemen. Rumour has it that his height permitted him to get under and mave his opponents. In rugby. Ron played six different positions in one season. But he really felt a home as a " weeble " playing prop. A prefect in Powell ' s House and a capable student, he has appeared on the unsupervised hst through his years and plans to attend Oueens next year. Good luck in the future, Ron. CHRIS WOOD In his many achievements and in the determined way he has pursued them, Chris has set a fine example to all around him. Throughout his five years he has produced first class results in class, winning the General Proficiency Prize four times and ending up with an Ontario Scholarship. He has also been a keen and enthusiastic competitor in his sports, and in his final year he has been Captain of Soccer and Vice-Captain of Swimming. In fact, he won his Colours in both these sports. Further to this he has had an outstanding career in Track and Field, where he was the Intermediate Champion and the Senior Champion for two years in each case. In fact, he is the first Appleby boy to win his Colours in this sport. In addition to all this he has climaxed a fine career by being Head Prefect in WaUter House, a Chapel Warden, a member of the Choir, and a leading participant in the recent Operetta. Certainly Chris has many abilities and, with them, he has made a valuable contribution to our school Ufe; but most important, he has always participated wfith great gusto and enthusiasm. ADRIAN C. C. YEO A pencil-case is dropped- an horrendous crash!- and everyone is reminded that " Ade " Yeo is still with us. In fact, he has been for three years but the mild-mannered Malaysian has tried to keep that a secret. Whether coming back late on Saturday night, forging a famous Rem- brandt or teaching Mozart the basic skills of piano, Adrian (you wouldn ' t know how to pronounce ' it) Yeo has left his indeUble mark in the alcoves of Appleby. During his stay with us he has been a continuous presence on both the Unsupervised Study and Optimates Usts and his often inaudible voice has boomed out at us as both a member of the choir and as the in- tellectual " Pirate " who little better to do than to read a jolly good book. How could we forget: His short-hved terms as a member of the Math and Film Clubs and his invisible, but unquestionable, attendance of games were more than compensated for by long hours spent behind both the brush and theivories. the former awarding him the Art Prize in grade 12, the latter, our admiration. Always a decent sort, we wish him the best for the future and hope to see him along with the likes of Emerson and Wakeman. DAN YUSTIN Appleby has experienced " Rudi ' s " full potential for the past four years now. and has never regretted it. He has always been active in all sports, leading the first football P.R. squad for two years; captaining the second hockey and our golf teams after winning the school golf tournament in grade 12. Academically Danny hasn ' t been as active but he did win both the grade 12 economics award and the general proficiency prize in grade 11. This year, Lt. YusUn ' s small physique could be seen at the head of the CoUey House platoon in the Cadet Corps. Danny will always be remembered as the quick witted. humourous guy who originated the under 5 ' 7 " club, and next year these characteristics will help him through U. of T. for a career in dentistry. Best of luck in the future. Dan. FRONT ROW, Left to Right: Bruce, Day, Lu, Baines. MIDDLE ROW; Devitt, Benson, Keates, Logan, Jones. BACK ROW; CambeU, Green, Hubner, Chin, Hogaboam. FRONT ROW.

VN Appleby ' s Ancient Monument structurally survived yet another savage year at the hands of its exuberant inhabitants, and spiritually achieved a " high " that continued throughout a rewfar- ding year. From the seething masses on the four-bedder deck, to the oft- deserted halls of the ' thirteen menagerie, a " joie de vivre " blended nicely wi h a healthy " esprit de corps " to form a most desirable and pleasant alloy of companionship and achievement. Mr. Washinton w rang the best out of a house loaded with talent, so that Colley House showed well in all its endeavors. Of special note in our list of accomplishments this year was the recovery of the Inter-House Tug-of-War com- petition after a disquieting upset in the previous year. Dave Suchanek led the house admirably, affectionately and ably, and with his band of merry prefects, managed to contain a potentially explosive mixture of energetic people and clever imaginations. What is it that makes Colley people consistently the happiest in the school? Could it be the sound of falling plaster? The draughts through cracked and broken vdndows? The Colditz Castle decor? The soul-joining effect of multiple blackouts? Or is it simply due to good, natural people, both in the house and in charge of the house? Colley House Whatever the reason, Colley House experienced a tremen- dously happy and successful year, one which will long be remem- bered by those of us who are graduating this year, the majority having been lucky enough to spend four years under similar conditions within the same house. Chuck Stacey ,m- , a. ' ' Ti. ■ . ' £ I WKM i jj l M Powell ' s House The old, battered, decaying wreck of a ship continued to float along quite well this year. Much needed repairs to the hold of the vessel were effected during the summer months and this year ' s crew returned to new showers and lockers- much more pleasant surroundings. As for the crew, they were the best this deckhand has known in five years. Rapport between the junior, intermediate and senior members was excellent. The well- knowm ' camaraderie ' of the College fleet of houses carried over very well to our vessel, the shouts of good times were heard :m : regularly aroimd the decks. It is unfortunate that an as yet unknown thief seemed to have free rein on the upper decks. It is fitting in this log to mention some of the senior members of the crew. J. B. McCarter, as head of the house did an excellent job, as did the other prefects. Other crew members- John, Trevor, Ken, Herman, Rob, Ivan (jumped ship at Christmas to pursue a career in teaching by violent persuasion) enjoyed a happy yet somewhat restrained passage. In closing we must say a few words about Mr. Smith, who is stepping aside as housemaster this year. He hands over his job with the gratitude. I am sure, of all those who for the past twenty years have come under his sway- the time, devotion and concern for the house are very rare and very appreciated. To him and to the incoming housemaster, Mr. Landry, we wish the best of luck for the future. George Stott 1 === Walker House The south side of Appleby College is marked by a long, red brick building- inside which life is very different from the outside world. Perhaps the housemaster, the residents, or the resonating green corridors are responsible for this, or more probably a com- bination of all three. But nevertheless, there you are, occupants of this house are very different from those in other houses. Now, it may be said that as close a physical attachment to the dear building as would be ex- pected, was not shown by our 38 boys this year- at least judging by the fact that we had so much absenteeism from the hallowed halls, of a temporary or more extended nature. However, let us not confuse the word " at- tachment " with the word " devotion " , for while the residents were often detached from the house (I ' m sure reluc- tantly) they were always thinking of it, and supported it in ways unequalled in past years when the chips were down. Credit for the success, morale and dormitory raids the house enjoyed this year must go to the incomparable grade thirteen ' s. Absolutely " super " human beings. As such, sincere thanks must be extended to them and to our housemaster, Mr. Richardson, for a year that will live long in all our memories. Colin Richards A new face greets the Walker House boys as they arrive back to the College this year. Scott Alexander Snowden, the first baby of Mr. and Mrs. Snowden, arrived on June 14 and became the first baby born into Walker House. Congratulations to the new parents, and to Scott we wish the best of luck in the future. D.G. -A " " Sports V FRONT ROW: Benson I, Halliday, Gaskin, Hall, McCarter, Suchanek, Morrison.

First Football Tough Beginning This year, for the f irst time, a football camp was held at the school during the last week of the holidays. It drew a large number of players and, since it was a success, it will probably become a regular feature. Presimiing, that is, that the novelty of attending a camp and the desire to play football outweighs the want to lie aroimd the house and savour the dying warmth of the holidays. Asleep? Anyway, since the majority of the First team attended the camp, almost everyone was fit and prepared to play the Old Boys in the first game of the season. What we weren ' t prepared for was a field of mud and a sky of rain, such as we faced that day. These conditions were more favourable to the carthorse - like Old Boys than the thoroughbred Firsts, and they won 9-0, scoring on an in- si ' dious sleeper play. We were scheduled to play UCC the next Saturday, but, after a I week of continual rain, the game was postponed. It was during this week that the coast guard was called out to rescue the entire defensive squad which was drowning behind the Head- master ' s house. At this point, we had been practicing for five weeks without playing a game. This prompted Mr. Smith to say to the team " you birds must be going squirrelly. " We were. We had done nothing but hit bags, dummies, and each other. We had done porpoises and rim plays until we found our- selves doing them in our sleep. It was at this point that we hit on the idea of taking out our frustrations on the local high schools. Perdue and QEP came in handy in what the coaches liked to call " scrimmages! " They saved our sanity. On the Road Soon, though, we were on our way to SAC for the first game of the season. The field was firm and the weather perfect. As always SAC fielded a strong team and, consequently, the first quarter was a scoreless defensive struggle. By half-time, though, we had scored twice, with a 65 yd. split-end bomb and then a slashing off-tackle run by Tim Pike from thirty-five yards out. The second half saw one of the best moments of the season. Doc Halliday, our stalwart middle guard, found himself in possession of a deflected screen pass and, after he realized he wasn ' t dreaming, screamed into the end zone. When asked, after the game, why he hadn ' t spiked the ball, he replied, " If I had done that, people would have thought that I only rarely get touch- downs. " Despite a comeback by SAC we went on to win 27-21 after Don Green scored on a thirty yard run. We sealed the victory when Keith Morrison blasted a punt from our twenty which was lost in the clouds for a full thirty seconds, thus enabling even our specialty team to provide reasonable coverage. The Gods - For or Against? The second game was away at Ridley. We took the second possession and rolled eighty yards in twelve minutes on a classic drive to score. From then on it went from bad to worse. Bad penalties by us and an inspired forty-yard field goal by Ridley took them to an 18-17 win. Games like that are best forgotten and, since it was the first of three games we had to play in eight days, we soon did. Wonderful Wednesday it will be called in future. When we beat UCC it was sweet. The first quarter saw the game see-saw back and forth between the 35 yd. lines. In the second quarter the game leaned more towards our goal line. Then Powerful Pork Gaskin sneaked in for a touch- down after a split-end bomb (caught with the aid of the gods) had taken the ball to the UCC three. Later, in the second half, Tim Pike scored on an off-tackle play which he broke outside for a long touchdown run. The defense played very well in this game, especially the secondary whose safety Ian ■ .fi ' Giroday picked off three in- terceptions. He was aided by the line who harried their quar- terback all day. The final score was a beautiful 16-8. tff fHlflSHHtt Our Greatest Loss The last game of this eight day period was played away at Hillfield. In the first half, we scored every time we had the ball, bar one. Tim Pike on two beautiful break-away runs and Graham Leggat on one not so beautiful broken play pass. Bill Benson proved why he used to play tight- end when he leaped to intercept a Hillfield pass from the defensive end position. One of the coaching staff was reputed to have later said, in a moment of frustration, " If our receivers could catch as well as our defensive line we ' d have it made! " This game was marred by only one thing. That was the loss of our statistician Sean Baines. Un- fortunately Sean missed the last two games of the season with a mysterious injury. His absence was especially mourned by the quarterbacks who were 100% passing that game and wanted THAT recorded. The last game of the season was against TCS, the championship favorites. It was a very physical game and injuries badly hurt the team (not to mention the hapless injured). TCS scored a pair of lon g, unexpected touchdowrns in the first half which we merely chalked up to experience, daring them to try it again. Un- fortunately, they did try again, and succeeded, trampling us 40-1. (Thanks for the single. Reef, it saved a bit of face). Beautiful So, when everything was totalled the only thing that the statistics couJd say for all our blood, sweat and tears was that we had tied for second in the league. All the effort and emotion just to come second. It seems like a waste of time. But it wasn ' t, because the season was great. Thanks, sirs, Zuk, Pork, JB and everyone who made it beautiful, winning or losing. Graham Leggat Under 16 Football The success of this year ' s U16 squad was a surprise to both its coaches and its players. The team as a whole ha d excellent potential, but excursions to the North not only reduced our ranks but forced the remaining mem- bers to play in positions which they were unfamiliar with. Nevertheless, through sheer effort and determination the rest were able to make the season successful. Offensively, the team was quite productive and consistent. Led by our quarterback, Ray Casey, our offense was based mainly on speed rather then power. Our major scorers, the two half-backs, Stevenson with 42 points and Pollen with 36 points, were very effective with the running game. Peter Boyle, through his pass- catching ability, scored 24 points to be our major receiver. Other outstanding efforts were supplied by John Myers and John Da Re. Of course, without an excellent offensive line we would not have FRONT ROW: Bethune, Stark, McNair. Freeman, Casey, Wright, Paletta, Cartotto, Wood, Crawford. SECOND ROW: Benson, Gibson, Dorion. Bunting, Skinner, McKenzie. Rockett, Meyers, Pollen, Stevenson. THIRD ROW: Gardner, Stott, Tasi, Goddard, Morgan, Boyle, Washington. Da Re. FOURTH ROW: Mr. Landry, Lanning, Robinson, Werda. Hughes, Gratton, Johnstone, Mr. Manbert. been able to reach such heights. Defensively, the squad was equally successful. Because of the fine leadership and example of Glenn Wright the tackling and pass coverage became extremely efficient. With some effective plays by ends Wood and Skinner sweeps and reverses were staunchly halted. Jamie Washington and Stephen Rockett played extremely well on the corners while Jon Stark, Ron Werda andd Keith Stott held the line superbly. Together, the defense always put forth a great effort at crucial times when either the lead had to be held or the ball retrieved. With such terrific performance from every member of the team, it is obvious to me that, playing with our handicaps, we deserved the 5 wins, 2 ties and one loss that we earned. Especially sweet was our final victory against TCS, a great way to end the season. Dave Stevenson M0 ' -tf FRONT ROW: Lloyd. Sopinka, Locke. Cobham, Withey. Stiefenhofer. Kotulak. Locke 2.

There was per- sistently the nagging feeling, however, that it never quite played up to its potential, a failing caused in part by a lack of drive and in part by insufficient at- tention to the basics of running and blocking. The victories we had were good ones, but we should not have lost the games we did by such big margins. Offensively we were very uneven. Plagued by numerous fumbles in our first few games, we nevertheless managed to hang on to the ball long enough to win against both TCS and SAC. Of all the games we played, the two best were the tie with Lakefield and our second loss against Hillfield. In the first of these two games, we succeeded in marching the ball down the field twice only to lose it on fumbles. Near half time Lakefield was leading 14-0, when we finally managed to crown one of our drives with a beautiful long U15 Football H ' «3:--± r: li W ' ft R ; vj Wr Bt . 9 " V i ' l SI ' pass to Jeff Hughes from a touchdown. In the second half the defence did an admirable job of containing the opposition, scoring the tying touchdown themselves on a block kick. Against Hillfield, in one of our last games of the season, we got off to an excellent start, scoring a touchdown on a pass from Withey to Hughes. We then continued to control the play without, however, putting the ball over for a score. Hillfield scored and went ahead in the dying minutes of a marathon first half, and then went on to wear us down with their superior size and strength. It is very much to the team ' s credit, though, that it played hard right up to the end of the game, and was just as keen on the last series of plays as on the first. Stiefenhofer, who began the year at quarterback, moved to tight end, a change which was surprisingly effective. The quarterback was then taken by Rich " Lightning " Withey who warmed to the position as the season progressed, making use in particular of his good passing arm. On the line, the most ef- fective blocker was Mark Manifould, who doubled as the kicker. One of the most pleasant surprises of the year was the performance of Jeff Hughes as flanker. He was the leading rusher and the leading receiver of the team, achievements that were a bonus in the light of his ex- cellent blocking ability. Another stand-out was Mike Dejaray, who chalked up a lot of tough and well- deserved yardage off-tackle. Defensively, the squad was very tough, thanks to the efforts of all the players. Some of the more colourful ones - " Too Tall " Mull, " Dynomite " Dal Bianco, and John " Jaws " Markley - made unique contributions to the morale of the team. Especially strong on defense were the captain, Mark Cobham, and Doug Locke. Looking ahead to next year, the most important improvements wrill have to be made in the areas of the fimdamentals of the game - things like blocking, crisp execution, and tackling. In ad- dition, it would be encouraging to see the team respond writh more drive and enthusiasm, qualities which should not detract from the enjoyment of the game but which should rather lead to a higher standard of play and more suc- cess. At last, soccer has come into its own as one of Appleby ' s major sports. It used to be that senior soccer was played by those who could not, or did not want to go into Football. However, as of this year, the situation has changed. People are becoming more en- thusiastic towards what is, after all, the world ' s most popular game. This increased attention paid off, for this 1977 season was one marked by unparalled suc- cess. Near Miss The soccer tournament this year was held on home ground, and was fixed for a Sunday, shortly preceding the regular season. The schools who took part were: S.A.C., U.C.C, Appleby College, Crescent School, The Toronto French School, Pickering College, and St. George ' s College. From the first matches it was apparent that the calibre of play was exceptionally high. Appleby ' s First Team played strongly against even the toughest op- position, and were only eliminated following a hard fought draw with S.A.C., through a series of penalty shots. It was indeed disappointing to lose in such a fashion, but we had a least secured a third place finish. S.A.C. went on to win the trophy. Injuries! The beginning of the regular season was a succession of FRONT ROW: Day, Richards, Marsh, Wood, Mathieson. Cambell, Hammil. SECOND ROW: Hamilton, Mr. Larsen, Van Tighem. Etherington, Lanch, Lytle. Keil, Josselyn, Mr. Revill. First Soccer victories. Pickering, Lakefield, Crescent, Ridley, Toronto French School (an exhibition match) were all defeated. The game against Ridley was our hardest win. Although the opposition in this case had very skillful players they were con- founded by the same deter- mination and tenacity our defenders and forwards had exhibited in all our previous victories. The path to first place indeed seemed brightly lit at this point in the schedule. Howrever, storm clouds were looming in the horizon. Injury! Members of the team were getting hurt. Sore legs, sore backs, sore ankles - all took their toll of valuable players. Couple to this the loss of John Van Tighem to Northward Bound and one can appreciate the noticeable decline in morale the team experienced going into our match with U.C.C. The U.C.C. game was a classic in the armals of frustration. Time and again we were thwarted from scoring goals, as too, were the opposition. However, fortune did not smile on us. Three minutes from the game ' s end a high, floating shot from an impossible angle, drifted over the goalie ' s head, bounced and was in the net. More injuries! With only half the team sound in limb, we were pitted against S.A.C. Naturally, it was a disaster. The end result was three goals against - despite a nevertheless spirited attempt by those capable of running. We tied our next match with St. George ' s, again suffering injuries, but finally we shook off our slump to win the last game with T.C.S. and finished third overall. The Players The success of ths year ' s team came not so much from ex- ceptional skill as it did through a general enthusiasm for the game and a desire to win. Our forwards (Colin Richards, Nigel Day, Alan Kiel, Greg Marsh and Doug Cambell), although not as quick on the ball as they might have been, played with a determination which resulted in numerous valuable goals. Mid-field was handled more than proficiently by John Hammil, Mark Lanch, and Jamie Mathieson - all of whom gave one hundred and ten percent effort throughout the season. On defense, Paul Etherington, Chris Wood, John Van Tighem and Tom Lytle were exceptional - their clearances, passes and tackling keeping them together. Finally our last line of defense, Dave Josselyn, deserves praise for his solid goalkeeping - espec ially when the going was rough.

Second Soccer made up the defensive unit which held the opposition ' s scoring down effectively in the second half of the season. Thanks should be given to Mr. Day for the encouragement and support he gave to the team. His incessant shouting " Move to the ball! " soon became the team motto, in fact. All in all, we had a lot of fun this year on the second team and we look forward to an even better season next year. Gordon Richards dl Although the season cannot be considered a resounding success, the second soccer team managed to win one game and tie a few others. Overall, the squad was small, but determined to prove to the opposition that this was a team to be reckoned with. One of the team ' s weaknesses was that of scoring goals. The usual front line of Paul Sustronk, Keith Chin, Stephen Durst and Mike Appleby tried hard but just couldn ' t put the ball in the net often enough. Fred Reid, Joe Lu, and Mike Speich also contributed to the front line attack during the season. Our skilled halfbacks managed to control and move the ball well at all times. The halfback positions were played by Scott Hughes, Iain Hueton, Roger Cole, Andrew Newell, and Dave Holland. Stuart MacDonald, Shyam Seereeram, Martin Baggaley, Cord Richards, and Chris Lewis J U-15 Soccer In rainy September the under fifteen soccer squad gathered together with an air of optimism. After some practice we proved the optimism we had shown earher was not in vain, as we marched (with the help of two " rooks " from the Junior School) to the final of the Independent Schools Under 15 Soccer Tour- nament, held at Ridley. In preliminary rounds we crushed FRONT ROW: Gordon, Bronson. Follows 11, Stalder, Mr. Dickens. SECOND ROW: Headley, Trupke, FretweU. THIRD ROW: Smith, O ' Hearn, Hornick, Sambrook. both Upper Canada and St. An- drew ' s. The final matched us once more against UCC. It poured with rain (which somewhat dampened our spirits) as we played to a hard- fought, slippery finish only to lose in the dying minutes of the game. Through the middle of the season we were plagued with injuries, during which time we lost to the Oakville Reps and S.A.C., but we quickly sprung back, handing out defeats to Crescent, Lakefield, Ridley (twice) and the " b " Second Team. Near the end of the season we played a see-saw battle against our arch- rivals, S.A.C. This proved to be our best all-round game of the year; imfortimately, after the dust had cleared, our opponents emerged victorious. In closing, myself and " the boys " would like to thank Mr. Dickens for a very enjoyable and successful season. Peter Fellows f J . CROSS-COUNTRY From over the horizon faint footsteps and heavy breathing grevif steadily louder until emerging over the unconquerable hill appeared an Appleby Harrier. Amidst cheers and jeers he crossed the finish line only then to submit to the fatigue that over- whelmed him. A voice off in the distance could be heard saying, " That was good for a practice lap, now do three more before our warm up exercises. " Dumbfounded, the lone runner staggered off into the setting sun hopefully, for him, never to be seen again. Although we failed to break our victoryless tradition this year, the team grew as one, and for those who lived to see the end of the season, it was generally felt that we were much fitter than before but not really ready to prove it. Mr. Crabb ' s inspiration was greatly appreciated by everyone as we ate up mile after mile of roadway and mountain side. The aging vets: Chuck Stacey, Hugh Jackson, Des Burke, Nick Jackson will be replaced by the runners of tomorrow: Graham Stuart, Andrew Ross, Brad Merrill, Dave Burke, Brian Baines, Bruce Corley, Don Johnston and Paul Bundschuh who have all our best wishes.

J I ' - I - L Tournaments For the second consecutive year, the team journeyed the long trek to Groton, Mass. to par- ticipate in a tournament jointly sponsored by Groton school and Lawrence Academy. Determined to improve on the team ' s per- formance from the previous December, we first took to the ice against Lawrence Academy. We skated stride for stride with this talented hockey club for the first two periods, but a combination of the thirteen hour bus ride and Lawrence ' s offensive ability took their toll in the final frame. The final score of 9-3 was not in- dicative of the flow of the match for the majority of the game. We quickly boimced back from our loss by defeating our traditional I.S.A.A. rival Lakefield by six goals to two. This gave us the right to meet a Chicago high school team in the consolation final, and we handily disposed of them 3-1 to win the consolation championship. It was a great thrill to participate in such a high calibre level of hockey, and the whole team enjoyed the ex- perience immensely. The trip was highlighted by Dave Suchanek ' s interpretation of the A W Great Root Bear Dance. Back at Appleby after the Christmas break, we co-hosted the second annual Appleby College - Oakville - Trafalgar High School tournament. The double- blue tide could not avoid playing perhaps our weakest game of the season in the second round, and were thus eliminated from the championship round. The team boimced back the next day however, by playing our finest game of the season in defeating the powerful Henry Carr team 5- 0. For the second time this year, we found ourselves in a con- solation final, and we were true to form in beating St. Jeromes of Kitchener 3-2. In the cham- pionship final. Central Blues edged Blakelock Tabbies 2-1, indicating that the Halton County High School League is quickly developing into a competitive level of hockey.

The year was marked by in- consistent play, especially in the third period. Too many times this year we were leading or con- trolling the game, only to falter in the last ten minutes and lose. In many games we recovered our composure with a few minutes remaining to play,but our great outbursts of pressure often fell short. Three times during league play this year, we were defeated by a single-goal margin. The team ran into some hard luck during the season, particularly the loss of captain John Hanunill due to injury, players going up to the northern campus, and inex- perience in the nets. The team completed the regular schedule with a ten victory and six loss record, and thus qualified for post-season play finishing in fifth place over-all. Only eight points separated the top six teams. In a sudden-death contest against Central Blues, a poor performance eliminated us from further play-off action. I.S.A.A. The same problems that we encoimtered in the High School league also plagued us in I.S.A.A. competition. Just as we seemed to be starting off on the right track in our first game against U.C.C, a third-period collapse cost us our two goal advantage and we went on to lose 9-6. Inconsistent play again hurt the club in losses to Lakefield, T.C.S. and Ridley. At other times, the team managed to display the skill expected of them; the victory over Ridley 2-1, and a loss to S.A.C. 4-2. Over-all, Appleby tied for fourth position in the league with Lakefield. Glen Wright ' s winning goal against T.C.S. in the final game of the season points to hope for next year ' s team. The team itself was a remarkable one; a team with a level of spirit and camaraderie unparalleled in its height. Sen- timents ran high at the hockey banquet, and many fine things were said about the team and Coach Abbott. Many individuals should be pointed out for their contributions to the team. Our captain, John Hammill was forced to the sideline about halfway through the season with torn knee ligaments. An irreparable loss to the team, John was not only a dangerous offensive threat on the ice, but was also the team leader. Still, he took his burden in stride, and continued on with the team to the end. On defence, two old stalwarts by names of Mark Gaskin and Ron Withey paced the club. It is hoped that Glen Wright and Jim Coxon will be able to fill the gap that these two seniors leave on the blue-line. The fact that at the beginning of the year we had no experienced goaltenders didn ' t slow down Dave Suchanek and Darryl Beckett. Both starting from scratch, these two worked hard all year long and never let up. They even managed to post three shutouts between them. Last but not least. Coach Abbott showed a lot of character this season. Always shaking off the tragedies that beset the team this year, he not only taught the team how to play hockey, but also a great deal about how to build character. It was an extremely enjoyable season, and all looks bright for the future. Ian Giroday K ' i. Second Hockey FRONT ROW: Fournier, Yustin. McBride. BACK ROW: Stacey, Freeman, Hugo, Harwood. Bunting, Lewis, Myers, Hickling, Ricketts, Stevenson, Day, Dejaray, Follows I, Mr. Manbert. tTs, This year ' s second hockey team season (while the stats may not show it) was perhaps the one with the most potential in a long time. The only problem was the lack of time for which the team practised together - Driver ' s Ed., play practice, illness, etc., kept us from practising as a team. Our goal-tending was at times brilliant and at times " iffy " , but as a whole it was good. Chris Lewis usually got the start with Mike Dejaray filling in. At times Daryl Beckett came from the firsts to play with us. Defensively we were fairly strong. Lyndon Fournier was perhaps the hardest hitter on the team and provided offensive punc by rushing with the puck. Toby Follows continued to amaze everyone with his ability to go in a corner wdth an opponent who weighed fifty poxmds more than him and to come out with the puck. Chuck Stacey was a defensive defenseman who was very tough in the corners. Nigel Day had a very hard shot from the point and Chris Ricketts made many good rushes from our own JHtk ' . ' f— end. The offence was very potent. Steve McBride set up many goals and played as hard as anyone on the ice. Mike Hugo showed his brilliance always on the ice, and with Steve he should make one of the better combinations on the first team next year. Mark Bunting has the qualities to be a star. He has good moves, a hard shot and he is a very good skater. Joe Ryan has a long future in College hockey, since he is in grade none and came second in goal-scoring. John Myers was a hard player to figure out. Sometimes he would throw stunning body checks and be very " chippy " , and other times he would be a real gentleman. Nevertheless he had a very good wrist shot and always gave his best. The next line of Dave Stevenson, Don Freeman, Rich Hickling and Mark Mull was a very deceptive line. While they never scored nearly as many goals as the others, they were very good defensively. Rich Hickling must be commended on his ability to set up his team- mates. The season was a very en- joyable one. We were lucky to have a coach as good as Mr. Manbert: he made the year much more enjoyable because he emphasized the point that hockey should be fun and that winning isn ' t everything if you give one hundred per cent. On behalf of the team I would like to thank Mr. Manbert for a very good hockey season.

Bolt, This year ' s team was made up of both the seasoned veterans and a fresh group of rookies. Under the coaching of Mr. Snowden, the team got stronger and stronger. As one member put it, " Bobbles sure taught me a lot " . Most of our games were fast, good, clean hockey and we sur- prised ourselves that we could keep to it all game, in fact all season. There was a great spirit on the team and very little criticism among the players. Perhaps the most memorable game was in the finale against TCS. With the acidic memory of a close loss to them earlier in the season, the team went out and we mercilessly pounded them into the ice with a 5-2 victory. It was a rough game but the puck remained in Blue possession for most of it. With tough competition coming from Crescent and St. Andrew ' s, the team closed out vnth only three losses: one to TCS and two rcB heart-stoppers going to our arch- rivals from Upper Canada. Both of these ended up with the winning goal scored with less than thirty seconds left in the game. Next Year! Unhke most years we did not suffer greatly from Northward Bound owing to the fact that our " vets " were well spread out over the six weeks and that we had strong and willing support from our farm teams. No offence in- tended to the CAHA (Central African Hockey Association]. To wrap it up, I feel that we really enjoyed the season and to mention any individuals would be unfair to the others because it was a team effort from the beginning.

Our success is owed completely to our coach, Paul Martin, who took nine players with no height or speed ad- vantages and molded them into a successful team. It may never be knovwi whether it was his cunning strategy or halftime coronaries which carried us to victory, but it is certain that without him we would have been battling it out with Crescent and St. Georges for the wooden spoon. The players were a mixed group. The backcourt was probably the most experienced and best balanced in the league. When one watched the deadly drives of deceptive " Deeb Josselyn " , the quickness of " Snake " Leggat and " The Chief ' s " perimeter bombs and inside strength, one found it hard to believe they could ever miss - but occasionally they did! In the FRONT ROW; Halliday. Josselyn, Morrison. Leggat. Goddard. BACK ROW; Mr. Larsen, Boyle, Wood 2, Casey, Jackson. event of this rarity occurring, " Doc " Halliday, Raymondo Casey and " Jamaal " Goddard were ever present to clear the boards. Throughout the season the bench personnel improved considerably and this inspired confident play. " Boards " Wood took over well at centre when asked to. " Rabbit " Jackson, swift of foot and long of burner, (at once the smallest and hairiest player in the I.S.A.A.) and " Pistol Pete " Boyle proved their worth, especially on the fast break. Early in the season, we were forced to rely on defensive play, since our multi-phase offence was, as yet, in the embryonic stage. It was this defence, quick and aggressive, which carried us to success. Its merit was initially established in the opening game against UCC; it was on it that we relied when we played the Goliaths from Ridley. We played very well and victory seemed assured when, with three seconds to play, we scored to take a two- point lead. However, we had reckoned on neither the gods ' disfavour nor the referees ' in- competence, and consequently lost by two points in overtime. This loss sickened us but thanks to the coach and an inbred doggedness which seems to be almost a part of the school, we pulled together. As the season continued, we rolled over op- ponents without mercy (but with occasional ineptitude). One of the best points of our game was the fast break, which we honed to a fine edge over the length of the season. It was with this dagger carefully concealed under our cloaks that we took on UCC in their ov ti gym. In the first half, we wielded our daggers with great skill and succeeded in plunging them in repeatedly, up to the hilt, into the exposed areas of the UCC side. As they lay writhing in agony in the second half, we brought our North Carolina stall into play and, with the grace of a master bull-fighter, lured them out to us. They came un- suspectingly, and then in a flash and with a cry of triumph we dealt the death blow. " The Chief " ,«m%ww«« » streaked in behind the defence, and, floating in the air, caught and sank a perfect back-door alley-oop pass from the Deeb. It was a victory worthy of both the ears and tail for no Appleby basketball team had ever defeated UCC twice in one season. This was, undoubtedly, the high point of the season for the team. The team, in practices and games and post-mortems over brew at the Coliseum, achieved a balance between skill and determination, gravity and fun which must have been good to watch, because it was great to be part of.

U15 U16 Basketball The majority of this year ' s team was Grade 9 ' s, so our per- formance was shaky at times. But with the experience we gained this year and with Mr. Richard- son ' s help I am sure that we will be league champions. We found early in the season that most of the other teams we played were under 16 while we were under 15 and this certainly lowered our morale. But nevertheless when Crescent came to Appleby we were prepared for victory. After the opening tip-off we played very well and held them to a tie until half-time. After our pep talk at half-time we could feel victory in our grasp, but Crescent gained the upper hand and won by three points. The highlight of the year was our next game against TCS, the league champions. We played very tight defence and lost only by a stingy six points. Another high point in everyone ' s minds was the two games against SAC, which we won. The guard position was stabilized by John DaRe, Brad Hornick, John Markley and Adam Gordon whom we relied on heavily and who calmly brought the ball down the court even when being pressed. Our defence was the strong point with centres Mark " Tex " Manifould, David Distelmeyer and guard and captain David Tasi playing well. These three were also the highest scorers. Guard positions were played by Angelo Paletta, Peter " Coco " Faria and Will Seguin. Peter Ho mastered the fifty-foot set shot while Angle provided the himiour on the team. We had a lot of fun this year and I would like to thank Mr. Richardson for faithfully coming out to every practice and putting up with us and our antics. We shall all remember the look of shock and surprise on Mr. Richardson ' s face when the lady referee at Ridley gave Mr. Richardson a technical. I would also like to thank Mr. Martin who coached us while Mr. Richardson was up north. We did not win many games but I think everyone enjoyed this year ' s season. David Tasi FRONT ROW: Reid, D.

The team at the beginning of the season was comparatively inexperienced in terms of last year ' s team but by the end it had gained the experience needed for a well rounded team. Many players both on the first and second team levels showed they had gained this valuable experienjiJQ hroughtout the season. OnS fcftdM Jevel Bart Sambrook foundEis ofrt- posure on the court as well as some qfteely rounded ground strokes. Tim Rke powered his way into the number foiu- position as well as showing us the makings of a great squash player in the years to come. Alan Keil showed that he had gained a great deal of confidence in his game and his drive always kept him in the fight for a win. On the second team level, John Piatt showed that he was a consistent if not a flashy player. Bill King remained a competitive player in the crunch and Steve Durst and David Dorion showed vast improvements over previous years. David Holland, Colin Richards and Iain Hueton, although first year members of the team, showed improvement also as the year went by. A special word must be said about Fred Reid. Fred continued (again this year) to be the number one player for the team. He showed that the I.S.A.A. is below his calibre of play for he lost but one game all year in I.S.A.A. competition. Fred also did ex- ceptionally well at individual tournaments, winning the T.C.S. Invitational and coming in the semi-finals of most other tour- naments. For his performance this year he was selected to represent Canada on the under nineteen team which played in the World Jimior Tournament in Sweden last March. Fred will be nationally ranked in the top five in Canada for his age group (this year?]. The highlight of our year had to be winning the I.S.A.A. cham- pionships for the second con- secutive year. They were held at Ridley this year on the first of March. The team seemed to peak both physically and emotionally for the Championships. We had to contend with the Hkes of U.C.C, T.C.S., and Ridley. Throughout the year we had beaten T.C.S. and U.C.C. consistently but we still reahzed the threat of upset. Ridley had remained our closest competition all year. They had handed us our lone defeat of the year, a close 3-2 decision. Seeking revenge later in the season we managed a win over them in a 3-2 decision also. The I.S.A.A. was to be the decisive match of the season. In the championships we managed wins over both T.C.S. and U.C.C. with respective 4-1 and 5-0 scores. Then we faced our rivals; Ridley. Alan Keil fought hard but lost 3-1 to even things up for us. Bart Sambrook played one of the most exciting matches of his Ufe to beat a determined John Pitfield to whom he had lost earlier in the year. All we needed was a win by Fred Reid to clinch the title again. He beat his op- ponent 3-0 to clinch it and in the end the final score was 4-1 Ap- pleby over Ridley. The wins came when we needed them most. It was a long season and nothing could have been more rewarding than to cap it with the cham- pionship. I expect that next year ' s teams on first and second team levels will continue their vanning ways.

A special word of thanks to our coach, Mr. Larsen, who en- couraged us, trained us and was behind us all the way through. A great season and best of luck for many more to come. Don Benson 4i ' ■1 1 «2 This year the swim team had yet another successful season. We won the I.S.A.A. Final and the Kiwanas, Oakville High School Championship. It is safe to say that this year ' s team was probably the best dedicated team since the club was fovuided five years ago. If the standards keep improving as fast as they have been, Appleby will be, for many years to come, the team to beat. The most significant oc- currence of the season was the meteoric improvement of two grade 10 students, Don Johnson and Tom Hughes. Another im- portant development was the appearance of Dave Green, who stxmibled in from the squash courts, to dive impressively for us throughout the season. Dave Burke, Jamie Mathieson, and John Markley, when not involved in C.A.S.A. swim meets, were up in Temagami, or at B-Ball games. They put in their habitual faultless performances. Paul Bundschuh must be mentioned for his valour for sticking to the 200 freestyle aU season long, as must Joe Lu for the 100 breaststroke; FRONT ROW: Manbert, Burke 1. Wood 1.

For the old timers, Chris Wood, Des Burke and Rob Manbert, it was a tough season. For Chris it was the famous severed tendon at S.A.C., for Rob the ever present lung problems, and for Des just getting through practice was a battle. First Swimming In the end everyone was healed and present and fit, so everything just fell together. With the ex- ception of one swim meet at Ridley we had an undefeated season. A word of thanks must be of- fered to Coach Berriman who put up with our cramps and com- plaining and who managed to coax us into the pool every day. We are indebted to his skill as a coach which has over the years improved as much as the team has. Desmond Burke - Captain FRONT ROW; Baines 1, Appleby, Rockett, Bethune, Stoneham, Smith. BACK ROW: Meredith, Washington, Samuel, turnbuU, Gibson, Hamilton, Mr. Berrunan. A new challenge was added to the schedule of the second swim team this year. The team com- peted against Halton high schools for the first time, and did very well indeed, they competed in three season meets against their new competitors and won the boys ' division of all three. The team also competed in the Halton championship meet, where they finished second. The team continued to compete in the I.S.A.A., and easily won all its meets, but one. The only loss came against Ridley, at Ridley. We had beaten them at Appleby earlier in the season, but that must have been a bad day for them, because they defeated us handily in the Ridley pool. Exhibition medley relay and freestyle relay teams were sent to the I.S.A.A. final, where they finished second and third. Several individuals stood out in this year ' s season, and deserve some mention. Steve Rockett and Brad Bethune were standard performers throughout the season. They swam just about every event at one time or other with great proficiency and specialized in backstroke, but- terfly and breaststroke, respectively. Darryl Smith and Mike Appleby joined the team for the first year and became the fastest and most versatile freestylers we had. Paul Stoneham worked very hard all year at a variety of positions. He eventually specialized in breaststroke, and, by the end of the season he was turning in some excellent per- formances. The long distance races were usually handled by Peter Meridith and Sean Baines. They both did quite well, with Peter winning most of the races and Sean achieving good over-all results. There were three backstrokers. Mark Samuel, Hunter Wilson and Kyle O ' Hearn. All three did very well. Kyle did especially well in that he was forced to wage a battle against sickness all year, but never quit trying. Don Hamilton, Sean Baines, Hal Turnbull, Mark Gibson and once even the excellent Mike Appleby did very well indeed, particularly under difficult circumstances when asked to swdm Individual Medley or First Team 50 yard freestyle; however they frequently came in first and second place in these races. It was altogether a most satisfying season all round, but it would never have been possible without the hard work of aU concerned, especially Coach Berriman, who deserves warm thanks from all. Sean Baines The slash of skate blades, the slap of a puck as it hits the boards, the thud of falling bodies- no doubt, it ' s the league in action! Don ' t mention the Battle of Marathon or the struggle at Thermopylae. Why, nothing can be greater than the " wars " , (a most accurate term) that were fought every Monday. Tuesday, and Friday night during that long- winter of 77 78. Here! Here! speak not to me of the N.H.L. or the W.H.A. I dare say the com- petition within the C.A.H.A. (Central African Hockey Association) is unable to be surpassed. Oh! I ' ll never forget those great teams, the Mali Maple Leafs, the Nigerian North Stars, and the Togo Toros. Les Canadiens-Ha!! All kidding aside, I must say that this has been the finest year of League that I have ever ex- perienced. A special thanks must go to Mr. Landry, who, through his hard work and dedication, has made this year ' s League the best ever. R. Cartotto Hockey and Squash Leagues For the last four months a group of dedicated athletes have been making their way over to the gym to compete in one of the school ' s most vexing and demanding sports: a sport of co- ordination, agility, speed and brains. Every day from 3:30 to 5:30 you could be certain to find the Appleby squash courts packed with players, and the gallery jammed with eager spectators. Now, it is common mistake to confuse these jocks, these men of mind and muscle with twelve other people who frequent the courts from 5:30 to 7:30. There is a very subtle difference between these everyday common or garden dumb jocks who play from 5:30 to 7:30 and the athletes who work out from 3:30 to 5:30, this being that the 3:30 crowd are not just athletes but artists as well. They have raised the game to such a precise level that it no longer resembles the original game! Nay, it is nothing less than an art, each game a masterpiece in itself, each stroke perfectly executed, the footwork dazzling. To quote a certain Mr. Dickens, who put it so well (and later used it in a book which you may have read) " It is a far, far better thing they do than has ever been done before " .

For a rugby team to be a good one, it requires fifteen players who have the intelligence and ability to play the game well. For a rugby team to be a great one, a championship one, it requires more than that. It requires a man who has such a knowledge of the game that he can baffle even the most ex- perienced opposition with a multitude of intricate plays, both offensive and defensive; a man whose feel for the game is such that he is able to demonstrate a dimmiy that would do Barry John proud one moment, and hook with the best of them the next; and finally, a man who can stir such a pride in a team that would make them eager to take on even the New Zealand All-Blacks (and give them the wind in the first half). Such a man is our coach, Mr. r c- . ' - V r " 5 Washington. It was he who riveted our attention to the projection-room blackboard until leather balls oozed from our ears. It was he who was the cause of all the sheets which were torn by boys passing rugby balls in their sleep. And yes- it was he who devised the dreaded (Oh horror!) fartlek, those two soul destroying miles of wheelbarrows, piggybacks and other assorted bodily tortures. Indeed, for the first two weeks of the spring term, Jim Washington was undoubtedly the most unpopular man on campus. The results however were inevitable and the team won all but one of our exhibition matches. Our loss to Victoria Park, a superb team, was a learning experience for all and gave us the stiff kick in the pants which got us rolling right to the I.S.A.A. championship. Our first and perhaps most closely conteste d match found us locking heads with Ridley. We emerged victorious with a 9-3 score and special credit must go to the hard-driving forwards, particularly John Piatt, Ron Withey, Paul Grimes and our fearless leader, Frazer McKenzie. Several backs too, deserve honourable mention. Lang Moffat, Don Green and our assistant captain Graham Leggat led us to an undefeated championship of the I.S.A.A. Congratulations to all involved.

MIDDLE ROW: Mathieson, Thompson, Wannamaker, Gibson, Harmer, Wood, Mull, Pollen, Da Re BACK ROW: Mr, Stuart, Pike, Bethune, Mitchell, Skinner, Cole, The Under-17 Rugby Team this year had its ups and downs, and yet, looking at it in retrospect, it is safe to say that the season was indeed a successful one. Under the inspirational coaching of Mr. Stuart and the capable captaincy of Dave Stevenson and Rob Cartotto the team was oc- casionally pushed but usually led into competition. It is true that, on occasion, it took a while for the team to get fired up for a game- and this, in fact contributed to our most disappointing loss, against Ridley- and yet once it was in gear it was virtually unstoppable. This will be attested to by the fact that the Under-17 ' s beat SAC, UCC, TCS and Selwyn House from Montreal, in addition to winning many of their exhibition games. The most important thing to consider about this particular team, when all is said and done, was the enjoyment everyone had, both in games and in practice, I suppose, if special mention is to be made, a note of appreciation must be extended to Tim Pike and John Pollen, both of whose skills helped pull us through many tight situations, as well as Jim Coxon and Rob Cartotto. the power behind the scrum. It is safe to say that when the stakes were set everyone gave equally of their best. In conclusion let it be said that although the season was more than acceptable as far as results were concerned, the one outstanding quality was the fun everyone had. Thanks, of course, must go to Mr. Stuart for his patience and semi-divine wisdom as well as to all who participated on the squad. CoJin Richards -ItC. - J Jf}mi Li jj 78 Bantam Rugby FRONT ROW: J. B.

This year the Bantam rugby team had an excellent side. At the start, the team was generally an inexperienced one. However, as the season wore on, the en- thousiasm and hard work of all the players resulted in several victories over many of our op- ponents. Throughout the season, minor injuries disrupted team organization. Many players found themselves in a new position each game! No doubt, a large nimiber of players became widely ex- perienced with several aspects of the game. David Tasi, Angelo Paletta, Randy Sopinka, and David Roberts all provided outstanding drive to the scrimis and lineouts. The backs, led by the " Follows connection " , and supported by O ' Hearne, Locke, Cobham, and Dineen, formed an attacking line which just couldn ' t be stopped. Thanks must also go to Aiigelo and Peter for their accurate and indeed game- saving kicks. In closing, a special thanks goes to Mr. Day, our indefatigable coach, who, through his hard work, and patience, most cer- tainly led us to many of our vic- tories. Finally, a special word must be said about our " rookie " bystanders who, though, they got in one or two games only this year, definitely promise well for next year - good luck!

First Cricket The 1978 cricket team at first looked very promising. There was a very strong group of batters coupled with four devastating bowlers to form one of the best sides the school has had in recent years. With Dave Josselyn as captain we looked forward to a highly successful season. But such was not to be the case. We had all the potential talent that could be asked for. The problem was we were rarely able to put it all together and therefore had a disappointing season, but quite enjoyable nonetheless. In our first game, against U.C.C., we faced a weak team and an apparently easy victory. But, our batting game was marred by five run-outs as we fell flat for ninety-two runs. Our fielding display wasn ' t much better as we allowed twenty runs in the four overs before tea and then " succeeded " in getting seven vdckets before they got their ninety-three runs. Our next match was against T.C.S. at home. The team ' s batting display was probably the finest the school has ever seen. We scored two hundred and twenty runs for three wickets, led by Dave Suchanek ' s ninety-seven and Dave Josselyn ' s seventy runs. But, despite our superb batting we only managed a draw. Our bowling was weak and T.C.S. stayed in until time ran out. The first win of the year came against S.A.C. on a scorching day. Finally we won a toss and decided to field. Our bowling was just superb. Iain Hueton bowled terrifically and S.A.C. were all out for seventy-one. The story was the same as it had been in previous games. We couldn ' t back up good bowling with good batting or vice-versa. We were lucky to pull out a win with out number six and seven batsmen hitting the winning runs against those wild Jamaicans. Next came the tournament at Inshalla. The team this year was determined to make a better showing than last year where we deliberately lost in the first round to Ridley. On Saturday we drew U.C.C. which gave the team a big lift because we wanted revenge, and we got it. U.C.C. batted first and we retired them for a meager seventy-two runs in twenty-six. Again our batting was not up to form but we still managed the seventy-three runs needed. On Sunday we faced S.A.C. and we batted and were all out for sixty-nine. We then disposed of four S.A.C. batters very quickly when Steve Goddard, their " All- Jamaican " came to bat and destroyed our bowling. He scored most of their runs and S.A.C. won the tournament for the second year in a row. Fortunately we all received a little plaque or else Sham would have been very angry. Our final league game of the season came against Ridley and it by far was our most disappointing display. Ridley batted first and scored one hundred and ten runs which was a fairly good score, but well within reach because of our explosive batting power. Well, our batting wasn ' t explosive, and it wasn ' t even close. We reached sixty runs for five wickets and then the next five wickets fell for zero rims. Mr. Dickens was most upset as we could all tell by his long, solo trek across the vast empty playing fields of Ridley after the game . Though the year was disap- pointing we had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs. Many a time Lanny had us in stitches with his inability to catch the ball when it was thrown to him. The days of " Mad Dog " also gave us a laugh (and a growl). I would like to thank Mr. Dickens for having the patience to stick with us. It must have been frustrating to coach such a talented team that sometimes just didn ' t play up to its potential. David osseJyn Unde 2n Cric rl6- d ket ifi -.J JLmJm P J» ! FRONT ROW; Meredith, Stewart, Boyd, Marshall, Gratton. BACK ROW- Yates, Goddard, Hughes, Kay, Mr. Revill, Sustronk. The Under-16 Cricket squad was a team that had talent in its ranks. The bowlers revealed that they could do the job. displaying a fine knowledge of the game. Probably the best bowler was Tom Hughes. He was supported by Paul Stewart and Peter Meredith, who almost perfect his deadly googly. In batting, Paul Stewart was the ace batsman, scoring over a hundred runs. He was the only one to score a six on his first bowl. Opening batsman was usually Louis Gratton, a safe, very cautious player, who therefore score very few rims. Following wljtK ' ' V i i t H ■mf. «« him was usually Paul Stewart, then Adam Boyd and Don Johnson, who between them would score most or all of the runs needed to win, leaving six or seven batsmen with no action at all. Don Johnson was second to Paul Stewart in batting average, but not in runs. He had many Not Outs, though. Batsmen such as Tom Hughes, Barry Kay, Peter Meredith, Paul Sustronk, Geoff Marshall, Steve Cockell and Jeff Goddard had very little or no time to bat. The talent was, imfortunately, locked away. We give great thanks to Mr. Revill, our coach, who proved to us that cricket is more fim than we thought possible. With the spirit high and the bowling average low, we had a great team.

Third Cricket The Under- 15 Cricket team this year had a very successful season, suffering only one loss and this in a very close match against Saint Andrew ' s. There were many strong points about this team, but the most outstanding was our fielding. We played aggressively in the field, which resulted in many runouts and some spectacular catches and stops. Our fielding was so strong that not one team managed to score over 60 runs against us. In fact, in one game we kept the opposing team to twelve runs. So, thanks go to Mr. Large and Mr. Singer for drilling us on fielding practice. The team also got strong bowling especially from our co- captains, Pat Bates and Joey Ryan, who kept the runs down by taking many wickets. Batting was probably our weakest point, although at times we got some good iimings from a few batsmen. Rich Withey and Joey Ryan helped put on many rims for us. However we lacked depth in our batting order. We had a strong team, but most important of all, we had a good team morale and spirit. The two co-captains, Joey Ryan and Pat Bates, and the rest of the Under- 15 squad would like sincerely to thank Mr. Large and Mr. Singer for their time and efforts. Pat Bates and Joe Eyan P.S. This was a wonderful group of U-15 ' s to work with. Seldom have I enjoyed a team more- they were great in victory and gen- tlemen in defeat. Mr. Large Sai ing This year marked the second year that Appleby has fielded a Sailing Team; a practice I hope will continue. Because of the graduation of several of last year ' s team, this year ' s squad was composed of several ' greenhorns ' . In spite of this, we managed to do fairly well in the regattas we attended. The season got off to a good start when Andrew Newell and myself came second out of a fleet of ten schools in the ISAA Senior Albacore Regatta. Unfortunately, the wind was too strong for Laser sailor Adam Gordon to compete effectively. In the Oakville and District High Schools Regatta we also came second. Here we had a superb performance from helmsman Chris Thompson and his crew Geoff Benson in a Code 40 dinghy. In the Lakefield Open Laser Regatta we placed a disap- pointing fourth out of eight schools. Special mention should go to Brad Hornick who, with his excellent starts, had some good races. The time between these few competitions was spent racing against each other, practising starts- a crucial factor in racing- and discussing rules and strategy with our coaches, Stuart Smith and Alan Ryder. Of these two special mention should be made. Stu and Al came down each day during the Spring term to coach us and impart some of their ex- tensive sailing experience.- all without reward, save that of a job well done. Thanks are also due to Mr. Washington and Mr. Bailey, the two staff members who each did a great deal to aid us this year, despite their other coaching responsibilities. i Martin Baggaley Tennis FRONT ROW: Myers, Hayward, Dorion.

Dave Green • ' ? » Cross-Country For me, the cross-country race was a particularly gruelling experience. I have come to the conclusion that these hot minimarathons are no fun, not even if one is in the best of con- dition, which I was not. This is not to say, however, that I did not obtain great satisfaction in finishing such a race. I must confess that about half way around the third and final lap my finishing was becoming a bit doubtful, and yet crossing that finish line was like entering the Pearly Gates, crossing the Styx from purgatory into bliss, ascending to Nirvana, etc. In any case it felt good, if you catch my drift. Of course, the achievement was made even sweeter by the thought that I had gone for the gusto and won- it does not always happen that way, after all. Ian Giroday and those others who finished at the top are to be deeply congratulated on what seems to this writer, at least, a superhuman achievement.

S£iiiaSw -i The Jockey Club Stakes The performance of the Jockey Club Stakes was one of the most poised productions mounted by the school. For anyone familiar with previous shows, the evening was crowTied with the awareness that here was a group of actors that had some sense of itself - of its ovkTi capabilities and of the potential for drama in a scene, in a piece of dialogue, or even in a single line. Their timing was good, and their gestures were economical, devoid of the ten- dency to fidget which is the bane of schoolboy acting. The night on which I attended the play - the last one - one had the impression that the audience, with its usual predisposition to indulge the weaknesses of high school drama, found itself quite ambushed by the effectiveness of the acting and their ovm subsequent pleasure from the performance. The brunt of the action had to be carried by the three central characters: the Marquis played by Alasdair Halliday. Lord Coverley played by Charles Stacey. and Colonel Sir Robert Richardson played by Graham Leggat. During the whole play these characters are off stage for a few minutes only, but never did one have the impression that any of them wanted to be anywhere other than on the stage. These three are veteran actors on the Appleby stage, and it was for each of them the best per- formance I have seen. They have all learned a good deal in the past two or three years, an advance which showed itself most strongly in the subtlety that they drew from characters that were rather typical. Finally, there was that awareness that these actors were enjoying themselves - not because they were natural hams, but because they enjoyed acting well. This pleasure on the part of the actor is one of the most infectious things in a theatrical per- formance. It was gladdening to see, in the light of these good performances, a more-than-competent sup- porting cast. Where in many productions the stage belongs to just one or two actors who then shine even brighter in contrast to the flawed portrayals of whomever can be found to fill in the other roles, the students in the less important parts supported the show confidently and ef- fectively. One of the best of these actors turned out to be Frank Merrill, playing the self- important, self-made Lord Green. The success of Merrill ' s characterization is even more striking when one recognizes that Lord Green doesn ' t crack a smile in the whole play - and when have you seen a smile ABSENT from Frank ' s face for more than a few seconds? Andrew Newell was very good in his short ap- pearance, as was Doug Campbell in his longer one. Touches were added that contributed to the finish of the play; the constant interplay between the three committee members and their secretary Miss Hills, played by Catriona Wilson, and the sim- plicity and winning honesty of the jockey played by Nigel Day and of the trainer played by Paul Manifould: all these were sup- plementary effects that produced the final polish of the show. Apart from difficulty in hearing parts of the dialogue - a problem caused by moving onto the stage of the Oakville Centre without knowing it well enough - and the urmecessary and exaggerated banality of the attachment bet- ween Captain Trevor Jones and Lady Ursula Itchin, the audience ' s evening was entirely pleasurable and, at times, hilarious. One hopes that this standard and this feeling of ease and confidence on the stage, will continue in future productions. Mr. Snowden The Pirates of Penzance This year ' s operatic production was one which was enjoyed by actors and audience ahke. It combined a mixture of Uvely comedy with excellent orchestral and singing talent. The production played on three consecutive nights and attained a quality of professionalism which we have come to expect and appreciate at Appleby. The final night proved to be an ac- cum ulation of excellence, but this is not to say that the first two nights were below par; rather, in a production of this nature, the actors are invigorated on the final night, because it is the last chance they will have to perform. The plot, as typical of Gilbert and Sullivan, was simple yet in many places provided very humorous situations. One such situation involved the police hiding from the threatening pirates in the ruins of a chapel. The stage, being almost bare, obviously held no hiding place for the huge frame of the Sergeant of Police, brilliantly played by Alasdair Halliday. By posing as a majestic-looking statue, he evaded discovery by the pirates and subsequently the owner of the chapel. Most of the Sergeant ' s men huddled on the floor, except for the rather conspicuous member of the force, Mr. Larsen, who deemed it fit to stand facing a corner of the stage. All in all, it was a very amusing sequence of events performed with reassuring coolness. The highlight of the evening, which most will agree, was the performance of the Major- General by Mr. Josselyn. His presence on the stage seemed to electrify the audience, while his befuddled manner kept us very well entertained. Complimenting this comical side of the produc- tion, were great performances by Bill Dietrich as Frederick and Susan Aldridge as Mabel. Dietrich played the role of a young man destined to the life of a pirate because of his high moral standards. Combining his ability to make his presence felt on the stage and his talent for singing, he did more than justice to the leading role. Susan Aldridge played a most convincing young maiden deeply in love with Frederick. Not to be forgotten in all this praise are the yoimg ladies who played the parts of the Major- General ' s daughters. Although their dainty voices were sometimes lost in the large playhouse, their well-timed movements and virtuous ap- pearances allowed them success in their roles. Ann Jensen as Ruth and Alan Keil as Samuel sang with strong, confident voices and are too to be congratulated in their supporting roles. Also not to be left out are the pirates, captained by a domineering Chris Wood, who gave a strong background soimd for many of the songs. It is often a glamorless job to be in a chorus while others get the praise, but the operetta could not have been so successful without it. Special thanks should go to Mr. DesRoches who worked hard and long hours to put on a first-class production. And of course the people behind the scenes who are too numerous to mention here, but without whose help very l ittle would have been accomplished. Congratulations to all on a memorable performance. Eraser McKenzie Late in the spring term we were treated to " The Jest of Ha Ha Luba " This spirited play was put on by the middle school (9 ' s and lO ' s) and Alasdair Halliday. Dabbling in alchemy, black magic and the human vice of greed, the scenario took us to the study of Sir Arthur Strangeway, played convincingly by Tom Scott, on the eve of the New Year. Here we find that Sir Arthur has solicited the help of a queer old alchemist played by Adam Gordon, to help him multiply his fortujie. After a number of " bangs " and " poofs " which would put Mr. Francis to shame, the " Spirit of Laughter " (Carl Headley) is summoned and Sir Arthur demands a wish. Instead of demanding incredible wealth there and then, which he had been warned would just anger the " spirits " , he decides to outsmart them by asking for something seemingly unimportant, and only for one hour. He asks for a stack of next year ' s papers and as soon as the spirit leaves, he com- mences to copy down all the stock market reports of the coming year! But just prevails, as usual, and the spirit gets the last laugh as Sir Arthur sees his name in the obituary column. Not only was this play fun to produce but it gave everyone valuable experience which will be needed in the major productions of the future. Also to be commended on a job well done are Richard Trupke as the flawless butler, Snaggs, David Holland who controlled the lighting and David Piotrowski who ' s fine job of directing was reflected in the success of the play as a whole. But most im- portantly, the highest praise must go to Alasdair who made it all possible. Richard Woolley BY HUGH JACKSON This year for the choir has been one of activity and change. During the fall and winter terms, we sang a number of engaging anthems and arrangements, including " Ave Varum " by Elgar, " Venite " by Swann and " 0 tast and see " by Ralph Vaughan Williams. The trebles alone sang Jacob ' s arrangement of " Brother James ' Air. " Once again we enjoyed four Christmas candlelight services of very high quahty and, as in the past, each of the services filled the chapel with boys and visitors. Later in the year, the Junior School presented an informal concert in the gymnasium. The bulk of the programme consisted of " Captain Noah and the Floating Zoo " , a choral work which featured Tom Nicholson as one of the most memorable soloists. In addition, we were delighted by a number of solos on various in- struments throughout the presentation. During the final term, we had the good fortune to vntness a concert by the " Tempus Youth Choir " . The evening was enjoyed by all, and, indeed, their bar- bershop chorus inspired the now- famous " Apple-Barbers " , Ap- pleby ' s own group of barbershop singers who produced a most amusing if not technically perfect concert after one of our limches. (The concert was presented before grace so that no one might leave during the performance). As mentioned earlier, the year was one of change for the Ap- pleby music scene, for with the beginning of the third term came the end of the senior choir. Ap- pleby ' s greatly varied programme had made the scheduling of rehearsals which were con- venient for aU next to impossible. However, this change made it pos sible for Mr. Royse to spend half an hour a day with the junior boys and was thus in some ways a major breakthrough for the choir. In the final term, the trebles sang six anthems in ten weeks, a most impressive record. Among these were, " O Lovely Peace " by Handel, " Come Loyal Hearts " by Whitehead, and " Drop, drop, slow tears " by Gibbons. Altogether it has been a most enjoyable year and on behalf of all I would like to thank heartily Mr. Royse for aU the time and effort he has given to us.

TOP LEFT: by Paul Robinson. There is something intrinsically wonderful about creativity. Whether the work be in music or painting or sculpture there is an undefinable quality to it which raises it far beyond the walls of mechanism and mediocrity. In the visual arts, especiaUy, this holds true, for there is in every piece of work the clearly stamped vitality, character, and emotion of its creator. The piece of work may be a masterpiece, or the scribblings of a child, but no matter, the energy of life is equally inherent in both. It can be greatly appreciated, therefore, that an Art Studio is a place of great human energy - both mental and emotional. Our Art Studio this year was such a place, and if one walked into the building on Parents ' Day, when much of the year ' s work was on display, this would immediately have been obvious. The actual accomphshments of those working in the studio have been impressive. Many fine paintings hung on show entailed a great deal of work, as too did many lino prints, dravdngs and sketches. To me any such work is one of the most satisfying things to behold, for it carries in it a certain abstraction, placing it, if you vdll, half way between a thought and a thing. The three-dimensional work was also viewed with widespread approval. Pottery and sculpture Art Studio i ., ; Two faces by Brian MacDonald were just a few of the crafts laid out on Parents ' Day for in- spection. As this year we had our pottery workshop, under the excellent instruction of craftsman Geoff Stevens, this aspect of the display was perhaps stressed the most. Probably the most noticeable thing about the pottery exhibition was the sheer volume of work completed in this field. Tea pots, jugs, ash trays, mugs, bird houses, figures, musical instrimients - the list of creations was endless, and fascinating. Although not under way at the time of writing, the studio recently acquired a sizable amount of silver-smithing equipment. As such, the future looks even more promising in the field of three-dimensional work, and hopefully an even wider horizon will be added to the already limitless boundaries of creativity. Colin Richards BOTTOM RIGHT: by Colin Richards Pottery Workshop When Geoff Stevens first set foot inside Appleby ' s art studio he was confronted with mounds of clay, a potter ' s wheel, wave after wave of Appleby students and the somewhat intimidating task of getting all three to work together. Clearly, even such a talent as his could not always make those grubby little Appleby hands turn out work on the same level as his ovra. Yes, it is true, alas that some of the work did fall a bit beneath masterpiece calibre- but it cer- tainly was not through lack of excellent instruction on his part. No, he is irreproachable in that regard without a shadow of a doubt, and yet, I wonder if he didn ' t give just the smallest sigh of relief as he left, considering of course the amount of raw Ap- pleby talent and gusto which oozed out of Appleby pores each day he was here. Why I ' ll wager that the poor man was terrified lest the mighty Appleby art machine use his knowledge to put him out of business, and I fear that he will lose many sleepless nights in the future biting his nails. Joking aside, this year ' s Pottery Workshop was a resounding success. Pottery, like any highly skilled craft, is something which ri V . r requires many years of practice and application before proficiency can be achieved. This is not to say, however, that nice work cannot be finished over a short time given the right in- struction and guidance. We were really fortvmate this year to have someone like Geoff come down from his studio in Terra Gotta to conduct the programme. He was both a first-class craftsman and a first-class teacher. If he had any fault at all it was that he made everything look so easy! I say " fault " , for it lulled us into a false sense of security so that the expression " throwing a pot with the wheel " took on a deeper significance as the bevdldered novice scraped pottery from out of his mouth and ears. At the end of the two weeks many excellent pieces of pottery. encompassing every conceivable shape, form and size were fired and on display. It had been both a rewarding experience and a lot of fun. But mostly a lot of fun. Many thanks must go to Geoff for his patience and efforts to bring Appleby closer to earth. CoJin Richards r On Athletes by Graham Leggat My father was a professional footballer for twenty years. I first started going with him to training when I was about four. He used to take me into the dressing room before the game. I felt lost and frightened in all the heat and noise and the smells of win- tergreen and leather, but the sights of naked, sweating men getting stripped and rubbed down never bothered me. I never thought about it. The only time I was embarrassed was when the players teased me, or offered to teach me how to box. I sometimes kicked a ball about on the field. Out there, in front of the terraces, on a well-kept pitch, I would dribble the ball which came up to my knee. I do not remember feeling exhilarated at being on that field. I just played there, quite oblivious of the surroundings. I was quite content to kick a ball about. In fact, I remember being more excited at my friend ' s father ' s warehouse because I could climb about on the bags of cement. My father was very good. He was the best player of his time, in his position. He made twenty pounds a week for ten years and after that he made, at most, eighty pounds a week. He never encouraged reporters or television men. He never men- tioned to me anything about himself. I heard reports only from other people. He just played. He first started because it was a way to pay his college fees. After he got his degree, he just played. I can remember watching the games at Fulham from the Director ' s Box. I never watched for him in particular. I can ' t actually remember my dad playing. I remember other things about the games. There was a huge black gate at Fulham, with a Uttle door in it for the players and their families to step through, without letting the crowds in. I - J • remember the hordes of autograph himters waiting before and after the game; the hangers- on cornering the players and asking for complimentary tickets; the people hanging around just to be seen with the players. When we moved to Bir- mingham, Dad used to take me to see Coventry play, or Wolves. We " It is unfortunate that the best players make the easiest marks. " went to the V.I.P. loimge before the game for tea and sandwiches. Someone always wanted to talk to him and I would stand and listen, feeling really out of place. When we went up to the Director ' s Box to watch the game, I ' d listen to the conunents he used occasionally to make. There was a young fullback who played for Coventry that he liked. It was unfortunate that the best players make the easiest marks. Someone is always trying to make a name for himself. " I kicked Leggat all over the park when I played against him. " Although I never noticed, my dad was in- jured quite a lot. He broke his right leg twice and his left leg once. Or rather, someone broke them for him. They also broke his left arm at the elbow. He ' s got a pin in it still. He had the cartilage removed from his right knee. His right shin has a two-inch lump running down it. " Someone came right through me one game. " I never remembered him injured. He never mentioned it. When I was about seven, Fulham sold him to Birmingham City, after he had played for them ' J •«fc for ten years. During that time they were in the first division. They have not been since. I never liked Birmingham very much so I suppose dad did not. I remember kicking a ball all day in a corner of the field during pre-season training, and drinking mugs of tea with the players. There must have been about six sugars in each mug. Birmingham sold him to Rotherham. We didn ' t move house so dad drove up and stayed in a boarding house, coming down for the odd weekend. Once, I went up and ' stayed with him for a weekend. It was the time the Beatles released " Hey Jude " and I can remember singing it with him. We sang it at the breakfast table. That was the first time I ever saw saccharin tablets. I could not stand them from the start. It ' s uncomfortable to sit and watch your father and have people around you make com- ments about him. " He ' s getting slow " or " Leggat ' s getting nasty out there. " They were old fools who had probably never kicked a ball in their lives and who would faint if they had to play in front of fifty thousand people. They were people who couldn ' t hold a candle to him; quite Kappy to kho aim as long as he was famous, but with very short memories if he was dropped. •«. Rotherham sold him to Aston Villa, -as a manager. He coached the youth team; mostly boys under twenty-one not yet signed as professionals, on amateur teams with the club. Their games were on Saturday mornings , and I probably never missed one. Except once. I was kicking a ball about in the dressing room after dad and his team had gone out to the bus. I doubt i noticed them leave and, anyway, I thought he would come back for me. I have stayed there all morning The team was great although ' ' He .stiff ad a arge enough reputation to at- tract the bullies. He wasn ' t pole-axed every time he was on the field; but he was good enough to make anyone look stupid. " cannot f emember any of them now. I knew them all then and I suppose I used to tell them off whefl they were on the field, in the game. 1 shouted as vehemently as jf my dad. I was ei K Dad signed as an amateur in order to be able to play for them. This was awful for me because those little thugs put the boot in and the referees seemed to turn a blind eye to it. I suppose it was because he was older. It ' s awful to see ydur father being kicked about. Soraetimes, I have nightmares in which I dream he is being beaten up and, despite all my efforts, I cannot help him. Shortly after dad became an ■amateur, the manager of the first team was fired and dad resigned in sympathy. I stayed with the man just two simimers ago when I went for a trial with Manchestei United ' s youth tesim. I lasted two days. » After dad resigned, he played with local amateur sides for a few years. He still had a large enough reputation to attract the bullies. It ' s not that he was fragile or unable to take care of himself; nor was he pole-axed every time he stepped on a fielS. But he was good enough to m e anyone took stupid. They vvspbd fefing iiim dd qa after he had bea them or when the ball had gone. That is so shabby. Bfft he never shied away; 1 0 not suppose he ever thought about it. Then he quit. After working as a salesman for Xerox for a short time, he was offered a job as coach df a professional team in Toronto. It was soul-destroying. tf The administration was more interested in pleasing the crowd than in letting him run his team. It has proved fortunate that they finally fired him. They did so after his team lost 6-0 to Bologna, a visiting Italian side. That night, before the game, I had been taken to the hospital with acute ap- pendicitis. He left the game at half-time, when the score was 1-0, and he put his assistant in charge. He came to the hospital. They never thought about that. It was easier to use him as a scapegoat. They appointed his assistant head coach. They were bloody Americans who couldn ' t even tell what shape a football is. They had no idea about who he was. He was just a name to them; a tidbit of news they could feed to the press. Now he works for a brewery as Director of Public Relations. He is still the best at what he does, but he is falling apart. He has to wear a back brace and, occasionally, one of those horrible sausage things around his neck. He cannot play too much golf or tennis because his elbow joints hurt. His knees hurt. He doesn ' t tell us and he tries not to show it but I ' ve seen him wdnce when he plays. Despite the fact that his injuries are catching up on him, he ' s the best athlete I have ever seen. In England, most of the players played because they ' couldn ' t do anything else. My dad played, initially, because it paid for his education. But not once when he was on the field did he think about the crowd or the money bonuses for scoring, or the pain. But it is impossible for the average person to see that. He sees the glamour and the money and the noise and the devoted public and the press clippings. He doesn ' t see what it ' s like on the field or in the dressing room. It is easy to say that it is a crowd-pleasing business. It is easy because, until you have been there and played with and against real players and experienced intensely the full range of emotions that sports supply; until you have been through the pain and despair and everything connected with athletes - you just cannot understand. 0 Sccnc(A Cf ttcC m6 cm cdmcC TVoMieef. He met her on a steel gray Sunday when nothing moves and it is not hard to see oneself as the only living boy in the city: the only one with any hint of colour. She was standing on the rock beach that had been thrown around the sea like a mantle. She was not pretty, too thin, with hair that seemed to have a mind of its own. There were others in the park and on the rocks too; but she alone had any colour. She looked sad and her eyes seemed to reflect a dark emptiness. Paul was not quite sure why he stopped there and sat down on one of the numerous benches, why he stared hardly blinking, why something dragged his mind away from the last night ' s adventures and flooded it with the hues that were her. Really, she was just a rough sketch of a girl, such as an artist might create with a few wide strokes of his pen after dinner while he waited for his coffee. It is strange how, now and then, nature produces such creatures. Her gait had a fascinatingly unexaggerated quality to it which was feminine without being overly sexy. Still, she could not have been more than five feet tall; every now and then she would pick up a handful of pebbles and they would run through her Qngers like so much water. " If only she would look over here, " Paul wished. " I could take her by the hand and we could walk along the beach and hear the lake running up over the rocks and back. We could go home and sit on the floor, on the rug in front of the fire. She would sip wine slowly from a glass with a tall stem. We would talk, just talk, and never would we raise our voices over a whisper. Then, as the night came and the fire died, we would hold each other so close and promise never to let go. " A police car raced by, its siren blaring, shattering the dream. Paul stood up, smoothed the wrinkles out of his clothes, and started back towards the road, and home. After a few seconds he stopped and looked back at the girl on the beach, glowing as if vdth the subtle hue of life itself, against the gray dullness of the day. A dog started to bark at a squirrel, a child yelled at his mother, two girls giggled at a private joke and she turned and smiled at him. She smiled at him and walked off in the other direction, a big, wide smile, a smile! He had smiled back and the trees became green and the sky turned blue. And, in the distance, the dog gave up its futile chase and trotted quietly off after some invisible trail, its tail wagging happily. AN OLD WARRIORS LAMENT My aged hand betrays my weariness, And foes cannot be slain with pen nor sword. My heart rejects the call for further battle, I curse this tragedy we march toward... The gallant actions of my reckless youth Hold nothing now but pleasant memories. This quiet cradles me in perfect bliss, No longer plagued like restless Ulysses... why can we not stop this crazy course. Which leads us on the road to dusty death? For Peace supplies the only life worth living. The life which calms the heart with every breath. Chris Thompson HAVE I BEEN DITCHED? At the dinner party laced with wine, I saw you dressed in Inde print most fine. You looked demure, unknown, quite out of place; I broke the silence, started up the chase. We danced that night, your welcome seemed not cool: But I should have known, not played the bloody fool; seen that our fling had reached its natural end - but I went on, though I ' d blown it there and then. For six days after Cupid ' s one-night arrow, I chased you till my heart met up with sorrow. Before a blazing fire on Dineen, You showed me for a fool (and far too keen). But yet the times were happy and well-spent. Although my view turned out to be quite bent, I thank you for revealing my delusion. As friends with pens let ' s sort out this confusion. ELIXIR OF LIFE In Xanadu, the River Alph falls to a sunless sea; and laudanum, my green delight, was what inspired me. Five drops of bliss, of deep repose, were your fine gift to me; gave me the strength to scale the heights, and brought me here to thee, to feast my eyes, with great delight upon shining caves of ice; to view the unknovra splendours of this hidden paradise, to know your ever-present love, to hear your dulcimer; Heaven! glorious Xanadu, where I stay evermore. Yes, I have immortality as Kubla Khan decreed. Yes, I have dined on honey dew, on Youth ' s immortal seed. A thousand years have come and gone but time has passed me by. The pleasure dome, that latent curse has stopped the starlit sky. Though life is lifeless, black despair, your love still comforts me. A flash of hope, love dulls the pain of cold eternity. Chris Thompson Chris Thompson Jim Lemeric sat at the small table in the kitchen of his West End flat. The early morning sum streamed in through the gritty window onto his face, warming him. Odd utensils and bits of food that had been used and left over in the preparation of his meagre breakfast lay scattered about the kitchen. He was not reading, nor did anything else occupy his at- tention. Staring, he sat motionless, pondering his situation. Where was he going? What remained for him? He had no idea. Yet, in the back of his mind, he knew that he mus t release himself from the agonizing boredom which dominated his life. Sunk deep in his chair, legs sprawled before him, he realized that he was only nearing forty, but fen years older. Graying at the temples, his once thick head of hair was now becoming thin and wispy. However, he prided himself on being very basic and down-to-earth, without any sort of vanity: thus it was he made no effort to conceal his baldness. Even in his present state of bhssfulness, there was a certain vitality to the drawn, ex- pressionless face. Eyes still puffy from a bad night ' s sleep, he had not yet shaved or washed, and his ruddy features were trenched with dark lines. Lemeric was a big man. When he was young and in active service, he had a good physique, but lately he had noticed that his once high-riding chest muscles were slipping down to his stomach, turning to fat. Sadly, the start of a paimch had left him unmoved. -« . Lifting his eyes from the floor, he heaved himself from the chair with more emphasis than was needed. What was wrrong vwth him, dammit? He was in a frame of mind that was making him act hke a man years older. Was it self-pity? It had been so long since he had done anything worthwhile. Was he really pitying himself because he had lost his drive and initiative? " God dammit! Snap out of it, man! " he said aloud. With this he went over to the sink and dashed some ice-cold water on his face. Picking up his tie and jacket, he glanced at his watch and saw that his morning ' s melancholy might cost him £in hour ' s wages if he didn ' t catch the bus. Twenty minutes later he arrived at his office building. Its tf. gray drabness gave him a feeling of depression, as he noticed, once again, how miserably the huge stone pillars failed at their at- tempted grandeur. Without giving it another thought, Lemeric trudged slowly up the steps. Entering his office without having to suffer through any falsely-cheerful " good mornings " from the office flunkies, he sat down heavily behind his small wooden desk. His office was cramped and dreary. A small portrait of a past manager hung on one wall, yellow and decrepit with age. A coat rack and a filing cabinet stood awkwardly, jutting out from the other wall, stopping the door from opening fully. A window behind his desk overlooked a narrow, grimy courtyard, while, Lemeric knew, the executives had a pleasant view of the city. Next to the Mfindow was a dirty calendar " A knock on the door didn ' t send Lemeric scrambling to look busy, as with the other workers. " vnih the previous month still in place. He must remember to change it. Lemeric sat back, surveying the dismal room in which he spent six and a half hours every day. A knock on the door didn ' t send Lemeric scrambling to look busy, as it did so many other office workers. " Come in, " Lemeric said, with his fingers interlaced behind his head. The door opened to reveal a petite, cute blonde. With an air of complete efficiency she walked over to his desk, then held out a piece of paper. He recognized it as an inter-office memo. Since when did the office use these? It was so much easier just to tell the person the message. " Thank you. " She turned briskly and walked or rather glided from the room, aware of Lemeric ' s eyes resting on her rear. Unfolding the memo, he went through it quickly, his eyes scanning, rather than actually reading. His old training. The message said that a call had come in for him that morning, but since he was late, the manager had taken it. Lemeric was to see him about it. Slightly curious, but mainly annoyed that the only reason the memo was sent was to emphasize that the old bastard was still checking on times of arrivals at work, he decided to let him wait. He busied himself vdth the masses of menial paperwork ujitil the morning coffee break. It was his custom never to go down to the office coffee room, but to go across the street, to a small pub. The coffee was more expensive but the solitude was well worth it. It wasn ' t that he particularly despised the other office workers, but he found their conversation so extremely dull. Last night ' s drunk and the stories stemming from this, held not the slightest bit of excitement for him. The other office workers, Lemeric knew, resented this apparent snobbery, and indeed they often made dealings with him difficult to show it. Lemeric didn ' t mind this, and in fact it helped him gain the solitude he had always seemed to have. Glancing at his watch, Lemeric left the pub and decided that it was about time to drop in on the manager. Without knocking he opened the door quickly to catch the fellow scrambling for papers. Walking confidently in, Lemeric stood looking through the window, once again glad to see that it overlooked the same courtyard as his own. The manager didn ' t look up right away, proving either that his present task was too mentally demanding or that he could be as rude as the next person. At length, the manager recognized Lemeric ' s presence in the room and leaned back in his tilter-chair - one of the luxuries of the job. " Lemeric. Good of you to come. " But before he could continue in this manner, Lemeric cut him off. " The manager beamed. It was not often he had a chance to grill Lemeric. " " Was there a call for me this morning? " he said flatly. " Yes, but unfortunately you weren ' t here, so I took the message for you. " The manager was taking full advantage of the situation. " It was a man asking for you. " Lemeric reahzed that he was going to have to drag every last detail out of the close-mouthed bastard. " What did he want? " Lemeric asked resignedly. The manager beamed. It was not often he had a chance to grill Lemeric. " He wouldn ' t leave a name, but instead he g ave me phone number. Now where did I put it? " Lemeric watched the artificial scene v«th detached amusement. Whenever he had to deal directly with the manager, certain an- noying situations always arose - a lost message, or a short memory. He found the incidents very petty, but realized that it was better to ride with the waves and let the old man have his moment of victory. At last he seemed to have found it. " Ah, this is it! " Handing the paper to Lemeric, he dismissed him with the air of a man already totally engrossed in his work. It wasn ' t imtil Lemeric had safely left the room that the manager sat back and sighed. " He didn ' t look again, but instead tore it into tiny bits and dropped tliem in tlie garbage. " Back in his own office, Lemeric sat on the corner of his desk, and looked at the paper. At the first glance he froze: 374-0565-R. Lemeric knew the nimiber well. In fact, anything he made a point of remembering, he never forgot. He didn ' t look again, but instead tore it into tiny bits and dropped them into the garbage. Turn the number around, subract one from each digit, and that was it. His mind raced, yet, uncannily, his face was calm and ex- pressionless. What did they want? Lemeric stopped the stream of inevitable questions quickly in his head. He would eventually find out what it was all about. In time. Lemeric had the great ad- vantage of a so-called " photographic " memory, plus a well-trained and disciplined mind. He put the incident from his mind until he could call for it later. He spent the rest of the day sifting through the meaningless paperwork that was never- ending. The five o ' clock bell rang off in the distance somewhere and he stood up wearily, leaving everything where it was. He stood idly staring out the window as if the narrow courtyard held some sort of intrigue for him. Fifteen minutes later he left his office, well after the mad rush was over. Outside, the cool evening air refreshed his senses. His senses now told him that there was someone following him. Was it the glimpse of a seemingly uninterested person at the newsstand, who started to walk behind him, or was it simply his tired, befogged mind? Trained instinct did not allow Lemeric to think the latter. He quickened his pace ever so slightly and turned the corner without glancing behind. He caught sight of the same dark blurred figure in the reflection of a passing bus vdndow. His heart started to quicken its beat as he paused to look into a shop window and the dark figure also stopped. A frightening empassiveness came across Lemeric ' s face as he plarmed his eventual victory over HI his follower. A victory of what Lemeric did not know, but a victory nonetheless. Lemeric started to walk again. Soon he entered the commercial section of the West End, filled with its ar- chways and alleys. This was where he wanted his adversary. Turning into an archway of a deserted office building, he stood motionless beside a large sup- porting pillar. Several thoughts ran through his head, broken and fragmented - viilnerable parts, kidneys, throat, groin - It was at this precise moment that a burly, blond-haired man clad in a dark overcoat walked aroimd the pillar. Lemeric caught him v dth a vicious blow to the throat vn h the edge of his hand. Eyes staring incredulously ahead, the man was staggering back when Lemeric hit him again, this time with a swift kick to the groin. The man slumped moaning to the ground, semi-conscious. Still writh the same impassive face Lemeric wrenched the man ' s head back by his hair, pulling him into con- sciousness. " Why were you follovdng me? " The man ' s throat was so puffy and red he could only gurgle, blood spilling down his chin. " Who do you work for? " The man just moaned. Leaving him lying there, Lemeric stepped onto the street, made sure nobody had witnessed the scene, and walked quickly back the way he had come. As he walked he re-created the event in his mind. It never oc- curred to Lemeric that the man was innocent. But he did wonder why he had hit him so hard and so viciously. In the back of his mind he knew that it was the months of idleness that had built up an incredible pressure inside him. Lemeric also knew that he had a sadistic streak, and in actual fact " As he wall(ed lie re- created the incident in his mind. It never even oc- cured to Lemeric that the man was innocent. " he enjoyed the thrill of a good fight. Especially if he won. When he reached his flat, his hand had started to swell and his toe felt as if it were broken. He was really out of shape. Feeling more tired than hungry, Lemeric lay on top of his bed. A certain afterglow flowed warmly through him as he began to think again of the incident that had just taken place. His mind soon became foggy and he fell asleep. (This is the first section of a 15,000 word story .J r FOR SHINfE I met a girl whose eyes of pervenche blue Were older than mine. Under their quiet stare I felt like a young actor, someone new To that unsure stage and the footlit glare.

X NORTHERN CAMPUS li Comparing and contrasting Northward Bound in the winter and fall is much the same as comparing winter and fall camping: we must remember that these are very different from each other. We must include factors such as health, weather, or even transportation. To begin, in the fall the mode of transportation was the canoe - quick, light and capable easily of fifteen miles a day. hi winter the snowshoe was used - cumbersome, slow, able to cover only half the distance of the canoe. Canoeing was much easier and much quicker, - we saw more, travelled further and spent less energy. Probably the biggest influencing factor during our v«nter session was the amount of snow. It covered such essentials as our water and our firewood. Both of these were in abundance in the fall. Things were much more difficult with the snow. Every bit of campcraft learned during the fall was more difficult to execute in w inter, for instance, a tent, in fall, was quickly and easily put up, but in winter, problems arose: tent pegs had to be iced after they were driven into the snow. Pine boughs had to be collected for under the tent and snow piled around the edges. One of the greatest hindrances was not having a place to come in out of the cold: this was especially so on our four-day camp-out. When clothes got wet, they didn ' t dry, they froze. Sickness for lOE was also an important factor. It seemed that everyone in the class contracted the flu of some sort. This slowed us down, and prevented individuals from completing requirements. I feel it is important to be familiar with winter camping, and I enjoyed both two-week excursions, but I found fall easier and less demanding - really only a preparatory course for the winter. To finish, I think Appleby ' s Northward Bound course is an op- portunity every boy should have. Glen Yates Northward Bound was designed to teach students about survival in the wilderness, and, from their experiences, to gain respect for nature. In addition, an understanding of the untamed wilderness and its ways will help a boy to understand Canada ' s heritage of hardy voyageurs and pioneers who formed the backbone of our nation. The fall session, the introductory one, is designed gently to break in the students to the harsh realities of the north and to prepare them for bigger things. The weather was mild and pleasant. This fact surprises the new recruit, who has mentally prepared himself for timdra temperatures. As time goes on, the younger camper finds camping to be exhilarating and the mellow temperatures just right. The canoeing is quiet and relaxing, with the added bonus of allowing the canoeist time to drink in the beauty that surrounds him. On the other hand, the winter term proved to be the true test of endurance and patience. The weather was summoned by Cassandra, harsh and morbid, depressingly regular. The constant battle between the sun and the clouds casts the surroundings in sombre shades. The landscape is caught in vdnter ' s icy clutches, restricting any small movements of trees, birds, waves or insects which seem ever- present in the fall. Snowshoeing is not pleasant or relaxing, exciting or stimulating; it is monotonous - and tiring. The poorly lit black and white landscape never varies and the constant plod, plod, plod of the snowshoes is as numbing to the brain as the Chinese water torture. The winter term was a challenge, and most challenges are good; but the fall was more pleasant and much more pleasurable, and therefore the better of the two in my eyes. Andrew Krempulec E. R. II The role of the instructor in the Northward Bound programme is very frequently neglected; few people realize how important the instructor really is to the smooth operation of the course. In camp, it is the instructor ' s job to see that nothing goes wrong. He must see that the meals are prepared, that they get to bed each night safely after a hard day ' s work, and that they get up each morning and run. Out of camp, on a trip, all you have, is the in- structor, his patrol, and the wilderness. The in- structor is completely responsible for the safety and well-being of six or seven young men; their lives are in his hands. But in addition to this, the instructor must teach the members of his patrol the basics of wilderness survival, canoeing, water safety, wilderness navigation and elementary first aid. Therefore, the instructors that are to face such immense responsibility must be carefully selected and trained to meet the vigorous requirements of a northern leader. This is what E.R. II is all about. After the boys in grade ten complete their course, some of them volunteer to go on with the E.R., and from this group, fourteen to sixteen boys are chosen to take E.R. II with the probabihty that some of them will be in- structors in the north. While Mr. O ' Leary preaches the basic elements of ecology. Knobby and Mr. Stuart instruct us in the fundamentals of survival, decision-making, and first -vyA. aid. The course includes one week of practical work at the northern campus. Without a doubt, the instructors that are chosen from the E.R.II course will always be competent and rehable in their duties at the northern campus. Rob Cartotto and Dave Green I i«2v«n iii|i E. R. Ill IN PRAISE OF SENflOR INSTRUCTORS The culmination of our Northern programme is in the final selection of the nine boys who will take on the responsibility of instructing at our Northern campus. An additional 5 to 8 boys are also selected to teach the pre-North schedule at the main campus. These students come from a group who have taken ER I and II in the expectation of being able to assist at our Northern Campus. Not only are these boys responsible for carrying out a rigorous and demanding schedule in the north for a total period of five weeks but must also meet their academic and athletic obligations on the Main Campus. In doing so the challenge is immense and the contribution to the life of the College great. The instructor is the first up in the morning with the Director and is usually the last to be in bed after a long day. When away Tripping from the base camp, which is most of the time, the instructor is totally responsible for the welfare, safety and leadership of his patrol. The instructors are given the outline of what they must complete in the short, two, two-week sessions; it is then their responsibility to develop their own method of how it will be done and, at the same time, integrate all three patrols ' activities suc- cessfully. Considering that the majority of the in- structors are, on the average, 17.6 years of age and the boys they are leading are at the difficult age of 15.6, the above task is far from easy. It is an all-time consuming and exhausting activity. Needless to say, the ultimate benefit to these in- structors is great. The Lord Bishop of Peterborough, in a debate in the British House of Lords stated; " A child grows into a man when he learns and is en- couraged to accept the consequences of his own -v ,-jfrn,- " -iH . ' 1 ' Z actions. Put another way, he must grow in courage to make mistakes, and unUke so many pohticians, he must not turn those mistakes into principles Out of freedom to accept volimtarily the best, can come the crowning of human dignity and enjoyment. " I beUeve that if people can be helped to understand the nature of their own thinking and to be more aware of their power to influence the course of their own lives, they will develop a greater respect for them- selves. The greater respect they develop for them- selves and the more astute their awareness of their own thinking processes, the more respect and the more insight they ' ll develop into the way of other people. I firmly believe these factors are ultimately related to effective leadership and motivation and growth of the individual toward his goal. As a result, he will be more effective both for himself and for the institution in which he is growrlng and developing. Mr. NobJe (Director - N.C.J I Activities Events FALL FAIR To see Appleby College on Saturday, September 17 was to see a fair in progress. Not just a small fete, either, but a real fair, complete with games ' stalls, pop, hamburgers, and even an exhibition of vinta ge cars. Organized by the Women ' s Association, the day had taken many months to plan and develop. The result of it all, however, justified the hard work. Evidence of good planning was available in the many booths harbouring games which ranged from a ring toss to wheels of fortune. All this was set up between the gymnasium and the school building. Many people were seen walking around with their prizes of stuffed toys, and just as many again tried out the ball throw for its prize of a soggy master. Inside the gym an auction was held which provided many people with interesting purchases. This sale, combined with the tickets for food and games, resulted in a total of over nine thousand dollars raised by the mothers. No previous venture has paralleled this one for either monetary success or just plain fun. Those who took part must be deeply thanked and we can hope that they will equal this success next time. CoJin fiichards " - !P ' Debating Appleby held its Ninth Annual Invitational Debating Tournament on a fine November Saturday. Twenty-one schools from all over Ontario sent two debaters each including a duo of our ovni from Appleby. At 12:15 promptly the debating began and the serenity of the afternoon was shattered by furious cross-examination and much enthusiastic speaking for and against the resolution: " that Canada cannot survive without Quebec " . After the first round of debating a quick liuicheon was eaten in the gymnasium and then the debaters scurried off to prepare for the impromptu debate " that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder " . A third round with the same resolution as the first, followed. After a sumptuous supper the six finalists were announced. While they put the Tournament final touches to their speeches, the house was entertained vdth public speaking by the runners up. The day was climaxed by a fast paced and exciting final debate in the dining hall. Dr. George Ignatieff, Provost of Trinity College and one of Canada ' s premier statesman, honoured us as head judge for this debate. Mrs. Larsen presented prizes to the finalists and the best public speaker. The best debater was Scott Cooper of St. Catherines. The Anne Wickam Memorial Cup donated by the late Mr. O ' Byran in memory of his wife was awarded to the best school team - Ashbury College in Ottawa. The tournament featured most of the top debaters in On- tario and was again a success thanks to the judges, debaters, kitchen staff, speakers and timers, and of course, our own Mr. Himiphreys. Chris Thompson ISAA Debating 1977-78 proved to be another active and successful year for the Appleby Debating Society. Starting with our own Invitational Tournament in November and running through until the last Fulford Cup debate in April, Appleby has been prominant in the debating world of southern Ontario. No one can deserve more credit for such activity than Mr. Bill Humphreys. Mr. Humphreys works tirelessly, not only in coaching Appleby ' s (and at times St. Mildred Lightbourne ' s) debating teams, but also for deba- ting as a whole, in his capacity as Secretary of the Ontario Student Debating Union. Mr. Himiphrey ' s enthusiasm and keenness is infec- tious - we cannot help but do well with Mr. Himiphreys on our side. Proof of oiu " success can be seen in the Fulford Cup where we finished fourth with a 3-2 won-lost record. However, one extra win would have vaulted Appleby to a first place finish. Whatever the result, the quality of debating was excellent. What Appleby lacked in numbers she made up for with extra determination. Hardly a weekend went past without one tournament (if not two) and the Society did quite creditably. Most notably, Graham Leggat and Steven Harmer finished first and third respec- tively at the Hamilton Regionals and went on to Kingston for the Provincials Final where they had a good time and placed well in a field of Ontario ' s top debaters. Not only did we participate widely in tournaments, but this year, under the guiding hand and gilded tongue of Richard WooUey, we entertained St. Mildred ' s Lightbourne School for a series of informal debates every Monday evening. These were a roaring success, and involved many of our younger and less experienced debaters in an enjoyable and less pressurefilled type of debating. Thank-you Richard and St. Milly ' s. Debating Tie holders were impressed with the year ' s triiunph and voted colours to Charles Stacey, Sean Baines and Richard WooUey for their efforts in this year and years past. 1978-79 promised to be no less fruitful than this year. Although graduates Alasdair Halliday, Charles Stacey and George Stott, members who have always done more that their share for the society, will be missing from our ranks, we expect to have a large number of Grade 13 debaters to replace them. There should be many enthusiastic Grade ll ' s who will now be able to par- ticipate in Senior Fulford Cup events and good support among Grade lO ' s. Perhaps best of all, we will have a bumper crop of Grade 9 debaters from the Junior School. The future indeed looks good for the Appleby Debating Society. Chris Thompson The Chapel Much activity has been going on in the Chapel this year, in- cluding a number of major changes in the regular worship services. Early in the fall term, the an- nual Harvest Thanksgiving Service was held, with the Chapel decorated with produce donated by a number of students. Reverends E. F. Miller and Keith deed also visited in the autumn and gave enjoyable sermons touching on a variety of subjects. The fall term ended with the Christmas Carol Service, and the performance of the choir was particularly good. The winter term was highlighted by a guitar recital given by Brian Stuart and Dave Piatt, and a musical presentation by Alasdair Halliday, Jim Maltner and Rob Cairns was well- received. In the spring. Father Kelly Walker came to the chapel and delivered an extremely in- teresting speech focussing on the topic " Who am I? " He also displayed his musical talents as he sang and played the piano to a tune that he himself had com- posed. Other activities in the Chapel this past year include a service conducted by five senior Lakefield boys, choral evensongs, house services, and addresses by the Chaplain and the Headmaster. Perhaps the most noteworthy change in the Chapel for everyone was the switching of the main service of the week from Sunday night to Thursday afternoon. The first Thursday service was held at the start of the spring term. The advantages of such a service are that all the boys in grade 6 and up, including day boys, can at- tend; in addition, one can have the full robed choir every week, and it is a follow-through for those boys who have been confirmed. From the students point of view, this experiment seemed to be a success, and we hope it will be considered for next year. All in all, it has been a very busy and productive year in the Chapel, and the prospects for next year look even brighter.

The trees sigh as a brisk North wind whirls around them. Inside the Chapel, however, a sanctuary is offered from the chill of winter. Bathed in flickering candlelight the congregation sits attentively- restlessness tempered by the spirit of Christmas. This annual event- so capably managed by Mr. Stuart and Mr. Royse- marks the school ' s passage into the Christmas season. Now, the choir sings. The strain spreads out through the soft atmosphere. Along vdth selected readings and prayers, these songs carry with them the true character of the season. All too soon, however, this, the last of several such services, comes to a close. Coats rustle as the people prepare to go. The Chapel doors open. Each person, though, is warm as he walks out into the frosty air. CoJin Richards " • ' mmamnr ' m ' mrmmm Students Council The first Student Activities Committee meeting was convened early in September. The first order of business of that meeting was to elect officers. By a close margin. John McCarter emerged as our worthy President and Martin Baggaley was elected secretary. It was also decided that Steve Hall would chair the Dance Committee. He was later assisted by George Stott. Thanks must be extended once more to " Herb " for the magnificent job he did in this regard. He did everything from auditioning bands to overseeing the technical aspects of the dances and record- hops I don ' t know what we will do without him next year. Among our accomplishments was the re-instituting of that enjoyable occasion known as " Slave Day " . Besides being very profitable, Slave Day was a tremendous amount of fun for all involved. The prefects proved to one and all that they are indeed human, and took everything in an excellent manner. The year also saw some first- rate dances. Perhaps the most notable was the one featuring Major Hoople ' s Boarding House. I think that everyone in attendance enjoyed himself very much, as was evinced by the cries of " encore! encore! " at the end of the evening. That evening proved to many sceptics that Appleby is capable of hosting good dances. All in all, the men of the Ac- tivities Committee worked hard and conscientiously, earning the confidence of their " con- stituents " . Congratulations go to John for his admirable leadership and thanks to Mr. Larsen for his time and patient guidance. Martin BaggaJey 130 Dances A dance at the school is one of the most fascinating spectacles. The obvious observation is about the loudness of the music, but other sensations present them- selves- a stirring, mainly, of feelings experienced some years ago when I was in the same situation as the boys here, a sympathetic recollection of how one anticipates the evening ahead and of the incredible lack of assurance demonstrated in so many faces by too brazen a show of confidence. Inevitably, a semi-relaxed group, mainly of grade 9 ' s and lO ' s, has congregated outside the door of the gym, gathering moral support from each other in the shadows before facing the ten- sions of the dance floor. On en- tering, the music becomes markedly louder, although one doesn ' t notice it as much as one might because of the thick lines of young people who are leaning against the walls of the entrance, still imcomfortable about going in. The floor, the solid gym floor, vibrates with the music; if a loose chair were arornid you would expect to see it hopping about simply because of the trembling of the music. And it would be the most hvely thing in sight. The place is dead, except for haphazard groups of students obediently facing the stage as if in fact they were at a school assembly. On one side are the nervous, expectant girls, and on the other side are the boys. The anticipation and ap- prehensiveness are apparent beneath the unsuccessful masks of boredom. Everyone ' s face says " God, when is something going to happen at these dances? " But nobody does anything. So far, there is not even anyone necking behind the plastic sheeting that encloses the dancing area. The only people who look like they aren ' t lost for something to do are the boys handing out soft drinks at the table near the back. Finally, a group of senior boys begins to dance. We are about one hour into the thing, and the half-hearted shuffling is the first sign of any energy. From here, the night progresses to its peak a couple of hours later, when at least half the people in the gym are dancing. At midnight everyone trickles out, looking just as nervous as when the dance started. The exceptions to this routine -.J very enjoyable- dances, or moments during dances, when everyone suddenly is caught in the spirit of the thing and gyrates madly around the floor. There is the odd command performance: the jivers, the " bus-stoppers " , the relics from the 50 ' s who crashed one dance- these variations from the normal decor provide a focal point that these events seem to need. After all, one doesn ' t go to a dance to stand around. Mr. Snowden Father and Son Night What a tremendous evening! Once again the annual Old Boys Night 1978, at Appleby, proved to be an astounding success. In previous years we have told you all about the scores in the games, and everything concerning the sports aspect of this very fruitful occasion. In this issue of the Argus, we will discuss that aspect, which is not tangible and is thus not really understood. Have you ever thought about that sub-conscious feeling, called " school love " , and " alma mater love " , which brings those great members to come to Appleby, and rekindles those old feelings, which were once the everyday life of the school? No matter how far away they go, no matter to which country, there is something like a magnet on Appleby ' s grounds every January, that attracts the old boys back, and the fathers of the present day boys. It is an evening expressly filled with joy, because of old friend- ships which are lit once again - the same old jokes between buddies. The old talks, and conquests about past girlfriends. On the other hand there are the fathers who want to find out exactly what their sons are in. Oh! if they only knew about the dinner, the real dinner? That ' s the fun about school life here at Appleby, everyone wants to get to know each other, and to be friends again. Bravo Appleby. David Astwood " Let no profane person enter! " (unknown, inscription on the Royal Library, Berlin) Such should be the inscription above the Appleby Library doors. The Appleby Library is one of a studious nature, the unspoken whisper, " Do thy work " , forever resounding around the room. However, when this unspoken admonition is not sufficient to quell such turbulence as may arise when Appleby boys are brought together, there is always a polite, but firm warning from behind a shelf or book rack. This is Ms. Gibb, custodian of Ap- pleby ' s think centre. This year the Library acquired- added muscle in the form of Mr. Dickens. Study periods would be " STUDY PERIODS " , not spares. Although a great annoyance to all at the time, when I look back I am certain that everyone is really glad he did not waste those precious moments on some less challenging and rigorous pursuit- listening to the stereo for in- stance. All in all, the library is a great asset to the school. It is nice to have somewhere to go where disturbances are minimized to the odd scuffle or paper airplane fight- it makes it so much easier to do one ' s work. As such those whose efforts have combined to make the Library a great place to work,- Mrs. Stuart, Mrs. Howard, the grade 13 supervisors, and most of all, Ms. Gibb, are to be heartily thanked. CoJin Richards li ' I wonder, I just wonder what any " outsider " would have thought of Appleby College if they had wandered onto the grounds during Slave Day? " Look, there, behind that shrubbery! " squeals the horrified passerby to her husband. " Surely it couldn ' t be- no it ' s impossible, but rU swear I saw a hairy St. Mildred ' s girl wi h a raccoon skin hat and no knickers, diving into that bush. " " What ' s so remarkable- no, that might be indiscreet. As I was saying honey, don ' t you know it ' s Appleby College ' s " Slave Day " and all the prefects are dressed up in unaccustomed attire? " " But Horace, there are a throng of semi-clad, food-smeared creatures fighting on the lawm. " " Petunia, don ' t worry, the boys of the school, buy the prefects at an auction and then make them perform these amusing deeds. However, it ' s only for one day. " " Horace, there ' s a fellow over there salivating and biting his upper lip, do you think he ' s gone mad? " " No need for alarm, my dear, he has simply been instructed by his purchasers to swallow his nose- I ' m sure he ' ll succeed, given time. " " Horace, let ' s get out of here, this place is wierd. " " But angel, don ' t judge an apple by its colour- don ' t forget it ' s only for a day that they behave like this. I think. " So, off go Horace and Petunia with their first impression of Appleby ' s annual day of ber- serkness (if there is such a word). It ' s a vidld time to be sure, but definitely a lot of fun- even for the prefects. Incidentally, I think these fellows should get a round of applause for being such good sports about the whole thing- especially when things get a bit out of hand, (i.e. Breakfast), as always happens. CoJin Richards Talent Night!? -«s ' • ' -■5 -f?? a " ' i " t tw- ' J« - Ss s.vWciTS; ' C%, ' Although lacking slightly in ?! lipEih; - s year ' s Talent Night was one certainly to be remembered by everyone at- tending. Organized and hosted by Frank Merrill (with assistance from Peter Ochitwa) a dazzling display of talent was presented to us. Taking the form of a " Gong Show " , (panelists being Don -i - - Benson, Gypsy John Piatt and i ' Major-General MGM Gaskin), " 5 , music was first provided by the ' " guitars of Brian Stuart and David ' Mtj. Plat . A new supergroup, vS 4 ;S " Gryjcx " , also gave us their own version of Suite Madame Blue. These super-musicians included Glenn Wright, Mike Appleby and C. Kent. Comedy first appeared in the form of Tom Lytle, Mark Bunting 1 and Keyin Moran doing a 2nd City Sll Revue Spoof, following a grade 13 Vj Masters ' Meeting, which almost 1 stole the show. Then, a large fat .?? man wandered onto the stage and began performing Pagan Ballet; yes, Zuke the dancing machine had arrived and was received vdth warm applause. Yes, this year ' s Talent Night was certainly entertaining... Special mention should be ipade of the Gong Show Band: Al : Halliday, John McCarter, Don Hamilton and Scott Anderson, and of Steve Hall who engineered the sound system. Greg Marsh 135 Tempus Youth Choir On Sunday, April 16, the Tempus Youth Choir treated Appleby students to an evening of singing. This well-known choir is from the Oakville-Burlington area, and consists of 60 members including Appleby ' s Al Halliday and Nick Jackson. The concert was highly entertaining as the choir displayed their beautiful voices and clever arrangements. Mixing contemporary songs such as " Song Sung Blue " and " Yesterday " with Broadway hits " Hello Dolly " and " Caberet " , the choir was met with warm en- thusiasm. Particularly memorable were the selections from the musical " Ekklesia Radix " . We were also the recipients of an unprecedented " Tempus Bar- bershoppers " recital. The singers were directed by Brian Turnbull. The pianist was Mrs. Eleanor Crisell. Ian Giroday : wi ' Ji fe« K?»i ♦ • ,i ' ; . " ' r JL- ' » s ♦- ' • S. flabb A Tribute to Miss Wethey When I came to Appleby ten years ago, I found that Dr. Bell had left me a number of in- comparable legacies: there was a group of Schoolmasters, there was the magnificent Chapel which surely must be the finest in any School in the country, there was Hilda- the finest Cook in the world, and there was Drina, surely the most even-tempered, the most capable and the most gracious lady anyone could hope to share an office with. For me the key words which came to mind when I think of Drina are loyalty, humour and grace. In spite of my many mistakes over the years she has always fiercely protected me and often, in fact, by shifting the emphasis slightly, has made the mistakes look as though it were hers. I can remember, too, a particular Grub Day when she got great delight in digging her Great Grandfather ' s army xmiform out of moth balls and in urging me with fim in her eye to wear it. And finally with reference to our increasing enrolment over the last ten years, I knew that couintless people chose Appleby over other schools because of the gracious way they were dealt with when they called the office and got Drina. We shall never forget her right-mindedness, her sense of humour, or her graciousness; indeed, we shall never forget this great lady. Mr. Larsen Parents Day In spite of the weather, parents were stLU treated to some fine presentations. There was the sixth annual book fair with a wide variety of books which were specially selected to be useful for the students. The Argus itself had displays on photo and layout techniques. The Science department had ex- periments on view which ranged from molecules to mechanical advantage. The Math rooms mixed Pythagoras with computers - where two boys spent the afternoon trying to get a program to work! The geography room had some of the boys ' work on display, and Mr. Crabb displayed some audio-visual equipment and course outlines for each grade in the History room. The EngUsh department had a Creative Writing display and there were French skits regularly spaced throughout the afternoon. The Northward Bound film which was shown definitely not rated " G " . The Junior School had on display. History projects, models, rockets, the zoo, to name a few things; it is a small wonder that Mr. Smith claimed that " all the fun stuff ' s upstairs (in the Junior SchoolJ! Wherever the fun stuff was, there is no doubt that there were many proud boys showing off their school that day. Bob McLXweU Public Speaking Competition As always, this year ' s Public Speaking Competition was a night of great interest. The speakers ranged from an alien ' s viewpoint of Earth to Canadian poHtics, to cannibals- to give just some idea of how broad the range of issues was. Apart from the actual topics covered, what made the night especially memorable was the presentation and delivery of the talks. Alasdair Halliday gave a powerfully constructed talk on " Ah Interplanetary Council " while Frank Merrill, arms gesticulating wildly, gave a highly animated talk on Canada ' s politics. The real " shocker " of the evening, however, was Charles Stacey ' s unusual attitude towards cannibalism. Food for thought indeed! The other competitors were George Stott and Paul Grimes. The former perturbed the headmaster somewhat with his stand on religion. In closing, a note of thanks must go out to Mr. Sopinka, Mr. Gairdner and Miss Faye Dance, the judges of our competition. The winner in- cidentally was Alisdair Halliday. Thanks should also be bestowed upon Mr. Dickens, whose wit and colourful sense of humour kept the audience subdued through those terribly anxious moments before the judges returned to deliver the verdict. Colin Richards The Thursday Activities Programme To cover the Thursday Programme, four boys were asked to write articles on different aspects of it. They were asked specifically to deal with the origins and future of the programme, the masters ' response, the organisation and success of the present programme, and the boys ' response. None of these achieved their goals. What we got, however, was equally valuable: some thoughtful reactions, with different emphasis, to the programme as a whole. Although the facts are in some cases much out of joint, the intent and ultimate result are positive. I x idaef ;4etuKtic4 Some Thoughts on the Development of the Thursday Activities by Colin Richards When the Thursday Activities were initiated last year they were designed to provide opportunities for boys to take up, or further, interests of their ovwi. Un- fortunately, many chose to fur- ther just one big interest; television. This is not to say, however that the program is not achieving what it set out to achieve, although, needless to say, there does remain room for improvement. There are two different philosophies which can be applied to the situation as it stands. Primarily, there is the thought that people should not be totally governed by the school ' s tight regimen. The time on Thursday is their ovm, and thus if they choose to waste it, the decision and the ultimate misfortune is their own. The second school of thought is that the boys of the school are generally incapable of organizing, not only their study time, but also their leisure time in a con- structive fashion, and must therefore be urged to follow productive lines. Obviously, these two philosopliies mark the opposite boundaries of thought concerning the program. The ideal solution must lie somewhere in between. So far we have seen a system of relatively little compulsion. True, the band and choir are ex- ceptions, but basically the ac- tivities, the hobbies and even the dinner are held on a " Turn up if you want to " basis. Many boys did turn up regularly to the activities The programme was designed lo nccommodate, in port, a change in the Cadet activities. " I do not say that the programme is not achieving what it set out to achieve, although, needless to say, there does remain room for improvement. " ' Unfortunately, many choose to further just one big interest; television. " The band is one of the compuJsory Thursday A ternoon Activities. n X cUUf 74ctaMtce4 mmmm they selected, their initiative often leading to the development of brand new clubs. However, there is always the minority who abuse the system. It is only for- tunate that their lack of par- ticipation has not yet detracted from the quality of the program as a whole. Are the Thursday afternoon activities popular with the majority of the student body? Basically the answer is yes, for the right or wrong reasons. There are those who like it for its " slackness " and then there are those who like it for its interest. It is interesting to note that the activities pursued most strongly and conscientiously are the easy ones- like the Film Club. However, for the program to achieve one hundred percent success, people must be urged to get up off their backsides. As such, even though obligatory measures are un- pleasant to enforce, it seems that a shift towards the second philosophy mentioned is needed. This is not unreasonable. Such clubs as the Debating Society, Argus and Community Service cannot function without the consistent support of a large body of people. These clubs are not necessarily fun, but what they " Such clubs as The Debating Society, Argus and Com- munity Service cannot function without the consistent support of a large body of people. These clubs are not necessarily fun, but what they have to offer in the way of character and skill development is invaluable. " have to offer in the way of character and skill development is invaluable. People should look further than plain amusement on Thursdays- it is ultimately to their own benefit. Thus, supposing there are people who do heed the advice mentioned above and join those who have already discovered what the program can offer- where is it going? Obviously the answer is up. If we are already experiencing success, the in- clusion of those who are presently non-participators will naturally boost the level of the program ' s achievement. In a future, highly mechaniz- ed world, man ' s sole labour might merely be to kill time. The benefits of Appley ' s Thursday Ac- tivities might be well appreciated then. I x d ;4ctiMtce The Response of the Masters by Charles Stacey The Thursday Activity Pro- gram, in its infinite variety and splendor, w as, on the whole, well- recessed by the masters. The concept was thought to be ad- mirable, and desirable, by all, but many harboured reservations about the execution of the program. Upon being questioned about their misgivings related to the activities, the masters cited a few problem areas that cropped up in all the " interviews " . All agreed, for example, that the " Mickey Mouse " pseudo-activities, such as baseball, while being far and away the most popular and well- attended group (to the point of spectators), had to go. They felt that the activities should all be of a more academically-oriented nature. A few masters thought that the program in its present form was a waste of valuable practice time for school teams, and thought that team members, especially on the 1 " One Master felt that because of the competition of nnore relaxing and subsequently more popular ac- tivities, such as Film Club, his ac- tivity, one of a more academic and " worthwhile " nature was losing ground. He advo- cated that all acti- vities should be roughly equiva- lent in appeal, and therefore " fun ac- tivities should be ruled out. " 4 " first teams, should be allowed practice times when they had a game the following day. Perhaps the best fudges of the program ' s level of participation were the masters who were on duty in the houses on Thursday evenings. These gentlemen seemed to think that very few people actually attended ac- tivities, even though on paper, everyone appeared to be involved in at least two activities. It was suggested, not only by these masters in fact, that a tighter control over the boys writh regards to attending their chosen ac- tivities should be instilled. They realized the probable effect of a negative attitude if a defaulter system were enforced for ab- senteeism, but thought it preferable to the " night-off " at- titude they were convinced that the boys were adopting. One master felt that because of the competition of more relaxing and subsequently more popular activities, such as the Film Club, his activity, one of a more academic and " worthwhile " nature was losing ground. He advocated that all activities should be roughly equivalent in appeal, and therefore " fun " activities should be ruled out. The masters felt that the time slots were also too small for the objectives which they were trying to reach. Longer time periods were mentioned as desirable goals for next year, which could of course entail the lowering of the number of activities that each boy coulld participate in. On the whole, however, the masters agreed that the program was well worth keeping, and although change was necessary in some areas, the afternoon activities program was worthy of this development. They thought it allowed important groups such as the choir, the prenorth boys, and the band a time period that would be othervrise unavailable, and for the rest of the school it was an opportunity for the boys and the masters to meet one another on a different plane than usual. n i deuf cUuctie The Present Programme by Fraser McKenzie Thursday afternoon at the College is a time when the boys participate in activities not normally available in the busy schedule. The clubs that have been started range from physics to baseball. Any activity which is seen as being worthwhile and beneficial to the would-be par- ticipants, is given the ' O.K. " . The program as a whole started out with good support from the students, but gradually dwindled as people found that Thursdays are an excellent chance to catch up on work or just " veg " . The process was very gradual, so it would be fair to say that it has been indeed successful throughout most of the year. When the weather is agreeable, baseball is one of the best at- tended activities, enjoyed by over forty boys and several masters. Mr. Richardson ' s feared fastball always has many a batter timidly Archery and baseboU vieie two o i e more popuJar activities. approaching the plate. Altogether it is a most enjoyable part of the afternoon. On a more intellectual side, bridge is taught by Mr. Revill to several keen students. The level of play attained was good enough for some of the boys to enter a tournament in which they fared well. Cadets and pre-north training take up most of the afternoon for the younger boys, who are taught by capable seniors. The Cadets, who throughout the term gave the appearance of being a little disorganized, proved the cynics wrong by putting on an excellent show on inspection day. Pre-north training is invaluable for the boys in grade 9, since they will need it for the following year at Nor- thward Bound. For those so in- clined, the weight room club is a main source of entertairmaent on these afternoons. This is one club which has a constant attendance and, overall, has been a success. Activities on Thursdays that have been the most successful have tended to be the more recreational variety. The baseball, weight room and dancing clubs are examples that the boys enjoy a break in the week which does not involve anything remotely resembling school work. The organizational side of Thursdays afternoon leaves something to be desired. At- tendance at activities has declined because the boys soon realized they would not be missed even if they didn ' t go to their The program as a whole started out with good support from the students, but gradually dwindled as people found that Thur- sdays are an excellent chance to catch up on work or just " veg " . Three activities wliich have a constant attendance but which have a fairly low profile are music practice, debating, and the yearboolc. I x dacf ;4cUMtce activities. A system must be developed for keeping track of attendance at the various clubs if we wish to see a successful programme next year. The so-called " ' work detail " has turned into something close to a farce, as boys on this weekly group either don ' t show up at all or are made to do rather useless jobs. Somebody must be put into control of this work group who is prepared to arrange work for the boys. However, on the more positive side of things Thursday afternoon activities have proven to be beneficial and enjoyable to all involved. The work DelaU. a compulsory activity or each boy at di erent times throughout the year, was not a favorite one. Other activities which flourished at different times during the year were the weight room, dancing classes and First Aid. 152 The Thursday Programme: One Boy ' s Reaction by Graham Leggat K H E - ' . i-M . ,. J t y - i •i V 1 1 ' - -■-•v •• " For those who are particularly work- conscious or who suffer from guilt feelings if they don ' t do their homework, or for those who are slow to keep up, the Thursday Programme lets you engage in amusing activities or hobbies without worry. " The reactions to the Thursday Programme have been varied, as reactions to new things usually are. Some think it good and worthwhile, others are disillusioned because it never reached the level idealists said it would. Still others enjoy it for the breathing space it provides. But whatever side one takes, all are agreed that it is better to have it than not. For those who are particiolarly work-conscious or who suffer from g iilt feelings if they don ' t do their homework, or for those who are slow to keep up, the Thursday programme lets you engage in amusing activities or hobbies without worry. If you are afraid or psychologically unable to in- dulge in extra-curricvilar ac- tivities on other school nights because marks mean a lot to you, you can relax on Thursdays because everyone else is relaxing too (except for the twisted few who wet their beds if they do not work every night.) You can, if you would like, play with trains, play cards, feed fish, pretend you are Jaques Cousteau in the swimming pool, identify new breeds of band- aids, bits of skin and hair, or you can play more sports, supposing you haven ' t had enough. Actually, it ' s good because you get a chance to do something you would or- dinarily, outside the school, get a chance to do, like play baseball or tennis if you are a rugby player, ' J ' UeUuf ;4ctw4tCeA ■ or play trains if you are searching for a lost childhood. For instance, one of the most popular " un- derground activities " this year was the Bird-watchers Club, led by Mr. Snowden, and spent many peaceful hours watching birds. This is an example of one of many activities which the programme provides which you may get a chance to try again. Thus many, perhaps most, students, enjoy the programme because they get a chance to do whatever they like. Another group finds that the Activities are only a cheap imitation of what was advertised. They say that practically no one participates and those that do, do so because if they don ' t they ' ll get a defaulter. Or they participate because of the never-bite-the- The Bird-watchers spent several re Iective hours in different parts of southern Ontario. hand-that-feeds-you syndrome. It is true that the activities programme has fallen short of what was promised. It was hoped each student should view at least one cultural event each year. If one excludes the Dramatic Society productions and Talent Night which dubiously quaUfy for the cultural category, it is likely that only a very small percentage of the school has viewed anything more cultural than " Three ' s Company " . The Film Society was set up and textbooks distributed with the aim that students would achieve greater insight into film BaseboU and touch football fell into the " questionobJe " category; the question being should sports be pJayed on a afternoon which is supposed to be allotted to hobbies and intellectual activities. One of the main reasons for organizing the Thursday programme was to provide a space in the routine for more culturoJ activities. The intermediate pJay, directed by Alasdair HaUiday in grade 13, was a product of this desire. There should probabJy be a time durmg the week for a boy to relax without feeling guilt. as an art form. Great, but most joined to see the risque films Mr. Crabb could sneak in, or just for entertainment. Not that there is anything wrong with that-it was just no intended to be that. In fact, a few of the clubs have been formed with great zeal and idealism only to end up coming down a few notches in their goals. That ' s okay, but it adds fuel to the cynic ' s fire. Culturally and intellectually, I don ' t think the school is any more aware than it was two years ago. Where the progranmie has done well is in the lower grades which have a comprehensive pre-North and Cadets programme. But the upper grades do not have as a good a programme; or rather, they are left to choose on their ovm, which amounts to the same thing. The Thursday Programme allows a breathing space from the bother of studying. However, it forces us to enjoy our hobbies as intensely as we must enjoy our weekends, or the 28-hour breaks which are passed off as week- ends. Since our time is so restricted and limited during the day; indeed, our location is plotted every hour of every day so that sometimes I feel like a bleeping dot on a master table in the Headmaster ' s office, like the war tables in World War II; is so structured each day that when we are handed a piecemeal chunk of freedom we tend to be rather lost for what to do. We form clubs for activities which could be enjoyed just as well during spare time in the week, if we had any worth mentioning. The Thursday programme seems to be a con- cession of freedom. Instead of relaxing the evening study, and sports programmes for the senior grades, no distinction is made between grade nine and grade twelve, save the optimates club, which not everyone qualifies for. By grade twelve, boys should have the skills and self-discipline, academic and athletic, so that they need not practice or study every day. Certainly not for a ' udacf ;4ctco tcci standard period of time strictly enforced. If the programme of study and sport was made more flexible that activities could be spread out over the week, thus making more activities available to senior boys and enabling them to enjoy them in moderation in- stead of forcing them to indulge in a Bacchanalian debauch of ac- tivities on Thursdays. Also, since Toronto is the cultural capitol of Ontario, and, arguably, of Canada, it would be a good idea to relax the leave laws, as well as the evening programme to enable groups of chaperoned, or otherwise, students to enjoy some of the cultural life of Toronto. One of the best ideas, agree most of the Thursday programme is the flexible diimer programme. The only drawback to this is that if one is doing something any more vigorous than sitting at a desk, it is more comfortable to change into casual dress simply to eat diimer. I hardly think that people undergo a Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde change as they change from jeans to ties and jackets so it would not be asking much to have a casual dress rule for Thursday dinners. If the walls end up caked in raisin bread or the maids are covered from head to foot in meatloaf, then perhaps it would be best to go back to the old system. But otherwise, it ' s worth a try. So, all in all, for " right " or " wrong " reasons, the Thursday programme is good, and, as far as the boys are concerned, it should stay. And, after all, who is it for?

Cadet Inspection L!i It is sometimes amazing how the cadet corps can pull together and put on a spectacular in- spection, no matter how many errors the cadets have made in practices. This year, one platoon in particular was reprimanded for poor drill a mere two days before inspection, yet it had certainly come up to and in fact surpassed the standard of the other platoons when it was on parade before an audience, the Headmaster, and representatives of the Canadian Armed Forces. The weather was a mixed blessing; if it becomes too warm and sunny, the cadets sweat under their woollen uniforms profusely. This, however, was not a worry, for the morning was cold n n nil and rainy, and, by afternoon, it was just plain cold. The reviewing officer, Brigadier-General de Chastelain, the Commandant of the Royal Military College in Kingston, and his inspecting team, the Area Cadet Staff of the Canadian Forces Training System, did a thorough inspection of the ranks. After the inspection, the best cadets of each platoon did some very impressive manoeuvres in a drill competition. Major Dickens, the Commanding Officer of the corps, then armounced, without the aid of a pubUc address system, that the planned military exercise would be unable to take place because of the lack of blank ammunition. There were several ways to see all the activities on display at the inspection, and stopping fully to absorb each display is definitely not one of these ways: there are simply too many excellent presentations. Canoeing and sailing demon- strations were held at the lake, but the canoe-dumping and Scuba displays were done in the (much warmer) pool. At the Edible Plants display, there was a pot of hemlock tea brewing, and a display showing that clover and dandelion, the bane of any lawn, are quite edible and can save one ' s life. Boys were chopping and sawing wood, and there was a small shelter on view as an example of the shelters built at Northward Bound by boys on solos. In the dining hall, one could learn about orienteering, see the interaction between Cadets and Environmental Recreology, and discover the internal workings of the Argus while enjoying refreshments. Outside the Dining Hall, first aiders used a mock accident complete writh " blood " from the Art Studio to show off their skills. In addition, there was a Band recital, a brief gymnastics display and a film showing the various aspects of life at Nor- thward Bound. The awards presentation followed. Brigadier-General de Chastelain presented Cadet Headley with the Glyn Gzowski Award for the best Cadet, and Sergeant Mathieson was awarded the E.G. Beardmore Trophy for the best Sergeant. The Royal Regiment of Canada Cup for the Best Platoon was presented to Powell ' s House Platoon by Major Iverson. The ceremony was closed by a few remarks on the Cadet program by Brigadier-General de Chastelain. This has been the second year that the Cadet program has been voluntary for the boys in grade eleven and above, and many parents have expressed regret that there is no longer the im- pressiveness of an entire Batallion on parade with a marching band. It is, however, equally impressive to see a smaller group of Cadets with rifles in excellent syn- chronization. Either way, the Cadet program provides a needed service at Appleby, and the Cadets deserve all the praise they get for their hard work.

The people settle back to hsten as first one achievement and then another is read out. Yes, it has indeed been a good year. Looking back on it I can ' t say that there are many regrets. " Hmmm " , it ' s just as well that the Public Ad- dress System is not functioning as loud as it might be during the part about drugs and alcohol. The prizes are given out. There is laughter and excitement as the boys, heads bobbing up and down, march to the front. Gradually the voices die down, another speaker, the Head Boy as a matter of fact, rises to present his farewells. Good-bye 1977-78. The Chairman of the Board is saying something suitably finalizing, but I am already far away, having gotten a comfortable headstart towards the refreshment table. C H r L .- A .

Junior School House In September we welcomed seven new boys: Tom Benson, brother to Bill and Geoff: Chris King, cousin to Bill; Evan Wood, brother to Nick and Chris. Lawrence McNally from Oakville, Robby Schneider from Acton, Kurt Mull from Burlington and Jamie Mairs from the tropical Cayman Islands. This brought our numbers to 24 of whom 14 were in grade 8. Of these, Chris Chapman and Peter Wendling were the two longest serving members in the house in recent years, and Jim Vernon, Andrew Crawford- Brown, John New and Peter Senst had travelled right through the Junior School from grade 4. The presence of so many senior boys naturally gave a predominantly grade 8 flavour to the year which was certainly different and distinctive. I respect however that the younger members are looking forward to next year when the balance should swing right their way again. The prospect of having to abandon ship to the renovators after the March break gradually faded during the year, and both the dormitory and the four bedder took on a bright and colourful aspect as posters and models decorated the end walls and shelves. Many activities helped to fill our leisure time with the Zoo continuing to play a prominent part in the lives of many boys. Saturday night expeditions to the Movies or MacDonalds were organized by many staff members and Mr. Boyd. Winter tobogganning and cross-country skiing were part of an afternoon at Bronte Park with Mr. Berriman. The Spring brought two highly successful trips, one to see the 4 Blue Jays beat Boston, and the other a farewell night out for all grade 8 ' s to Burlington Bowl. Quote of the year has to go to Chris King who, wishing to avoid an inspection of the chest of drawers in the cubicle asked Mr. Berriman if he would please " drop the drawers " . An attempt to start an aero- modelling club was not successful due to the lack of time late in the year, and the complicated structure of the planes bought by the boys. This activity wrill start early next year with a totally new kind of model as standard to begin with. In complete contrast with the Rocket Club which had nimierous highly successful launches throughout the year and in which the boarders were prominent. Mr. Boyd however must take last word as the builder of the incredible Mean Machine. He tells me he plans a three tier three D powered machine of his own design for next season. My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed this year vdth all its ups and downs, and in saying goodbye to two-thirds of the house at one go, we look forward to an exciting new start in the fall. Mr. Berriman The most impressive aspect of this year ' s team was their con- tinuous progress and effort. They molded themselves into a ' team ' in the true sense of the word. Although some players stood out, no one player deserves all the credit. As a group they should be congratulated for their spirit and drive to become a vdnning team. A special mention of Mann must be made since his leadership on and off the field was an example for all to follow. The keys to our attack were the strong two-way play of Petersen, Barr and Thomson at half com- bined with the ever-present threat of Mann and Bronson as strikers. As our vkringers became more potent and the defense anchored itself around Strucken, these players made their presence felt at the opponent ' s goal.

The defence was sohd, fast, and boasted several players who could clear the ball at least half the length of the field. Out- standing in this department were Dave Bowen in goal, Chris Chapman at half back and Mark Freeman at half back also. The forwards made up for lack of ball control by making the most of occasional opportunities to score. Peter Senst proved to be a prolific goal scorer, with Rob Reid showing plenty of ability on the left wing. Rob was occasionally so fast in his moves that the ball failed to keep up with him; many promising attacks came to nought as a result of the ball ' s inability to keep up with the forwards. However, Won 5, Tied 1, Lost 3 is a creditable record- well done. J.B. The Third team had an ex- tremely successful season and were undefeated in thirteen games. Most of the credit for this must go to a few key players who made outstanding contributions to the team but, as is always the case, many fine performances were turned in by every player on the team. Richard Archer and John Kirkpatrick had particularly strong seasons and their play, combined with the energetic and enthusiastic play of the rest of the team more than compensated for a lack of defensive skill which was evident occasionally.

New recruits like Evans, Mairs, and Home gave us added speed and endurance while Buysschaert and McMenemy showed considerable talent. At best, our goaltending was adequate and the same could be said of our defense. We did try, however, to keep the ball well up the field and our tactics on throw- ins worked very effectively. Two of our numbers worked especiaUy hard throughout the season and gave of themselves unstintingly - Dawood and Nightingale. Our captain was Simon Lee.

BACK ROW: Mr. Boyd, Graham, Nightingale, McMenemy, Bruce, Schooling, Dawood. 5th S occer - During September and most of October this team played very well. It was soon clear that the half-back line and defence would be strong. Both Evan Wood and Dan Moses made excellent defence players, while K.C. Bascombe kept goal for all but the last match. Scott Miller and Rob Schneider developed into at- tacking wring halves, who could also be relied on to hustle back quickly to help the defence, George Mann, at centre half, had his on and off days, but always played very hard. On the forward line, Paul Petersen was the main threat to the opposition; however he spoilt too many plays by failing to control the ball or cross it back away from the goalkeeper. In the other positions, Jed Gardner, Geoff Anderson, Mark Follows and Peter Mann all improved steadily as the season went on. Unfortunately, in late October, the team went into a " slump " , and after losing closely (2-1), to a strong Crescent team, they again FRONT ROW: Schneider, G. Mann, Millar, Moses, Harlow, P.

However they pulled themselves together for the last match and played very well against Hillfield to win deser- vedly, 4-0. SEASON RECORD GP 9 W 6 GF 25 GA 6 It has been a very good year, in many respects a vintage year! This is not only because the teams have been successful, but because the boys have been very willing to train. Much of this has been due to Christopher Martin; his determination has exerted a positive influence on the others. As usual the competitions were packed into a short period at the end of October. First came the Brock High School race in which we came seventh out of thirteen schools, our best-ever performance. Toby Bronson was our first to finish in thirty- first place just two seconds ahead of Christopher Martin. Our next two were FRONT ROW: Mann, Martin, Bronson. MIDDLE ROW: Williams, Genereux, Thompson, Nightingale, Mr. Nightingale. Nicholas Nightingale and Michael Genereux. Stephen Mann and Kevin Thomson also ran bravely vrithout much training behind them. Two days later, on a balmy Saturday, we hosted the Independent Schools ' Meet. As in previous years we were convincing winners in both the under-12 and the under-14 divisions. Christopher Martin, Michael Genereux, Toby Bronson and Stephen Mann, well-supported by Kevin Thomson and Greg Williams, all ran well to give us a clear victory in the under-14 over Crescent and Ridley. The under-12 race was almost embarrassing, for not only did our ' A ' team win easily, but our ' B ' team almost came second, just beaten by Crescent. Nicholas Nightingale won the race and he was strongly backed by Christian De Josselin De Jong, James Mairs and Duncan Ross. The ' B ' team led by Todd Cooper, included Richard and Robert Archer and Ian Batty. The inter-tribal competition was dif- ferent this year, because there was one meet in which every boy competed, and a second in which only selected tribal teams took part. The overall winners of the first meet were Cayugas followed by Oneidas and Senecas with Mohawks trailing. Mohawks, however, can take comfort from the fact that their juniors led by Peter Mann, Wayne Morris and John Becker were clear winners in their division. The senior event saw a very good race for first place between Christopher Martin and Toby Bronson. Toby won convincingly although his time was considerably slower than the record. The final event of the year was the inter- tribal team race. Once again Cayugas proved that they were the best, but Mohawks and Oneidas tied for second and the Senecas brought up the tail. Although there was great interest in all the races with John Dovimie winning the Junior and Nicholas Nightingale the Intermediate, it was the Senior race which was the most interesting because of Christopher Martin ' s determination to outrun his old rival, Toby Bronson. Theirs was a cagey duel over the first lap, but Toby showed his strength, stamina and determination to pull away on the second lap to victory in a new record beating the old mark by eight seconds. In coming second Christopher had run his fastest race of the season, a triumph for him even in defeat. Few were surprised when Christopher and Toby were awarded their colours. Thus the season ended, but the future looks promising for there are many up-and- coming runners, Nicholas Nightingale, Greg Williams. Christian De Josselin De Jong and James Mairs among them, who should continue to provide the school with strong teams next year. Mr. Nightingale First Hockey As the ' 7 7- ' 78 hockey season began, the team had its sights set low. Few people believed that we would win a game. But when the season was over, we had proved all our sceptics wrong. After two dismal exhibition games, the team started to show some promise even though we lost our next two by small margins. In our first two games of the I.S.A.A. season we put forth a halfhearted effort losing both. Next game we overwhelmed Ridley, winning by a romping 6-0. With a bolstered team we met L.C.C. from Mon- treal, vanning 7-4. In the next game we tied 3-3. For the second time we met Lakefield, a grade nine team, and again we fell easy prey to them. Next it was S.A.C. where we won 2-0 with goals in the late stages of the game. Ashbury was our next foe and in two thrilling games we proved ourselves the better, winning 2-1 in both games. In probably our best game of the season we lost to T.C.S., again a grade nine team, but not without battering them up severely and forcing them to score in the dying minutes of the game. We defeated Ridley once more and tied S.A.C. in a game where we did everything but score. We failed to live up to the task against U.C.C. in our next game losing 6-0 to a much better team. We ended the season on a high note, riding to easy victories over a poor Crescent team and a slightly over- confident L.C.C. Our record ended up 8 wins, 5 losses, and 2 ties - not bad for a team that was not ex- pected to wrin a game. I am not going to mention any one person for playing out- standing hockey. The key to our success was a team effort and I believe that ' s the way it should stay. Greg Fournier - Captain ■ FRONT ROW: Moffat, Mann, Fournier, Freeman, McNab.

BACK ROW: Schooling, Easson, McNally, Bruce, Nicholson, Nightingale, McCarter. Size was our biggest problem, especially when we played teams that did not or would not meet our age level. So we tried to outskate them. This worked quite well considering the speed that our Captain, Scott Millar, and team- mates Follows, Mull, Bascombe, Merry, Peter Mann and George Mann were able to muster. Defence was the next biggest problem though lots of good ef- forts and improvement came from Wood, Mairs, and Jaworski. Fortunately we had two goalies of good calibre - Petersen II and Henderson - who made spec- tacular saves when they were needed. As a team, we got along very well and our spirit and deter- mination was always visible, even in defeat. Mr. Boyd This season the Under 13 hockey team had its share of ups and downs. At the beginning of the season, Mr. Millar coached us to four straight convincing vic- tories over M.O.H.A. teams. However, Mr. Miller was unable to coach us in the middle and the FRONT ROW: P.

Third Hockey latter part of the season, so Stuart Smith took over as the man behind the bench. At this time the team became overconfident and dropped two hardfought games to Ashbury. Paul Petersen played splendidly in goal holding off attackers, while many of our best players were playing for the first team. " Stu " did show our team quite a few good playing tips, and he should be congratiilated for his hard work and dedication to the team. Special mention should go to Greg Fournier (our captain and leading scorer), Peter Senst, Scott Guthrie, Lawrence McNally and Mark Barr for supplying us vnth hustle in the corners, goals and a few penalties! Finally the team started to look like a team again at the end of the season thanks to Stuart ' s good coaching, and we broke even in vdns and losses. On behalf of the entire team I would like to thank both Stuart and Mr. Millar for a truly educational and fim season. M. Moffatt The Junior School swim team has completed a very successful season of competitive swimming. But of our eight games we only lost three. Our strongest com- petition was the Ridley team. Even with the handicap of having a team that was much youinger than Ridley ' s, at the end of the season we had outmatched them three to two. Our great success was mainly due to the hard work during practices as well as in the actual games. This, combined with our coach, " Bear " Bailey ' s support made the season a good one. Of all the sv«mmers on the team, two were exceptional. These were our two captains Andrew Crawford-Brown and Chris Chapman. These two did their best to keep the team practising constantly and never let their power go to their heads. Several other swimmers also deserve honourable mention. Duncan Ross, Chris King, Kevin Thompson and Chris Martin all put their very best into it. Overall, the team has had a year of great success and I ' m sure a team with its potential won ' t be along for a long time.

When the season began there were several " old pros " as well as some complete beginners. Both groups have improved significantly. There has been a long and pleasant series of matches with Ridley College beginning with a softball en- coimter in December. However, since Christmas the ZOf ball has been used in all matches. Honours have been evenly divided, although we were particularly pleased to win the last match by a 5-4 margin. Throughout these games Rob Raid, Christian Strucken and Andrew Pepall have played well, but they have had enthusiastic support from Gavin McCulloch, Toby Bronson, Christian De Josselin De Jong, David Bowen, Ian Gordon and Paul McMenemy. The highlight of their season was the Invitational Tournament held here in February. We were surprised and pleased when our ' A ' team defeated the Toronto Cricket Club team 3-2 in the final. The stan- dard of squash played was remarkably high. The weekend before Rob Reid and Christian Strucken entered the Ontario under-14 championship, the first big open tournament for both of them. They were both defeated quite early on, but they were exposed to a good standard. Next year we shall enter more tour- naments for they provide most stimulating and challenging competition. There was also another group who played matches with Ridley and Upper Canada College. They enjoyed these encounters in part perhaps because they were successful. I hope that they will FRONT ROW: Bronson, Strucken, Reid, PepaU, McCulloch. BACK ROW: Mr. Nightingale, De JosseUn de Jong, Gordon. Bowen. continue to perform en- thusiastically because they will certainly gain much pleasure and recreation from the game. The annual Jimior School Tournament still has to be played since the end of term arrived with unwanted speed. For their suc- cessfial play and determined attitude colours were given to Rob Reid, the captain. Christian Strucken and Andrew Pepall. If a prize had gone to the most mobile player Gavin McCulloch would have been the winner, and for sheer determination Toby Bronson was peerless, although he did tend to endanger his opponents hfe. Well played, squash players all. Mr. Nightingale The junior basketball team finished yet another fine season, winning a total of five games and losing four. It was obvious from the start that we had no stars and that much work would have to be done. The result of many long, exhausting practices was suc- cess. The season started on a high note. Hosting Ridley, we had little difficulty in trouncing the op- posing line-up 33-22. The foUovidng Saturday, the ever- strong U.C.C. team brought us back to earth in a fourth quarter upset, the final score being 37-34. A new Ridley line-up appeared on the court a week later, only to be beaten 36-35. At the peak of our season, the team completely outclassed an inexperienced St. Georges squad, pumping in 39 points to their 22. Once again we faced our rivals in St. Catharines, and Appleby enjoyed another glorious victory, 23-21. The year tapered off rather feebly, unfortunately, for we lost the last three out of four games. Defeats were handed us by U.C.C, Crescent, and Hillfield. The team ' s fortune was due to the improvement of certain in- dividuals. Kevin " Dr. K " Thomson had a superb first season: racking up sixty points, the second highest on the team. His aggressiveness and forty-foot jump shot will never be forgotten. Big Dave Mutimer was the foul shot king [his method of shooting never ceased to fascinate Mr. Winter!) Sean " Big Red " Graham was always reliable under the boards, and we could usually depend on Louis Headley for his speed and sometimes for his reverse lay-up. Very special mention should go to Peter Wendling, Stuart Taylor, and Richard Archer for their fine efforts as the second line. But, of course, all credit and thanks should be directed to David Josselyn, our coach, for his patience, enthusiasm, and expert guidance throughout the season.

As I write this report the term has ended, the boys have gone home and the cricket season has officially ended. However such has been, and is, the enthusiasm in the team this year that we have arranged three holiday matches at the Toronto Cricket Club. Last week we won an exciting match as Andrew Pepall hit the winning two runs off the last ball of the match. This evening five members of the team were in the nets practising, and three of these are in grade 7 so we will have another year in the team. The season has unfortunately been marred by rain. Two of our three matches with Upper Canada and our return fixture with Ridley were all cancelled, leaving us only four school matches and the annual match with the Fathers. Our opening encoimter was against Boulden House who were more than a match for us since they made 151 for 4 wickets and we could only collect a paltry 29. However, this was not a true indication of our ability for an imprudent Run Out of David Bowen [by himself] started a collapse from which we never recovered. Stephen Mann bowled eighteen steady overs taking 3 for 67. Our next game with Ridley was almost as lopsided the other way. Stephen Mann, Jim Vernon and Christian Strucken with three wickets apiece hustled them out for 33, and after Dave Mutimer had fallen cheaply David Bowen and Stephen Mann easily knocked off the 34 needed for victory. Thus we were able to face the return match with T.C.S. with much greater confidence. With the exception of David Bowen who carried his bat for 16 we collapsed once more making only 36, a score that T.C.S. passed for the loss of three wickets. However, the team did not give up ineptly; every player continued to practise very seriously so that we met St. Andrew ' s the following week in a positive frame of mind. Once again Stephen Mann broke the back of their innings and Christian Strucken and Andrew Pepall finished it off so that we had to make 59 to win. There were some shaky moments but Stephen Mann played a real cap- tain ' s innings and steered us to victory by three wickets. Thus we came to our last school match against a very strong Upper Cana- da side. Batting first we started poorly with David Mutimer and David Bowen out cheaply, but Stephen Mann and Jim Vernon batting better than I had seen either play before took the score along to 31. With their example Christopher Chapman at last began to score and if only he had not raised his head for a wild svdpe he might have made many more than 10. A final flurry of hitting came from Ian Gordon who made a rapid and meaty 19. Our total of 82 was respectable, but insufficient. Still we made Upper Canada work for their 83 taking four of their wickets in the process. The last match of the season was with the Fathers, whose team was a nice blend of experience and new blood. Some meaty blows were struck and only one son succeeded in dislodging his sire, Stephen Mann. The innings of 84 concluded vnth a colossal 6 by John Nicholson off David Mutimer bowling his second over of the season. The boys were confronted by some rapid bowling by Messers. Nicholson and Ross, but undaunted David Bowen and David Mutimer scored 22 quite comfortably. By the time the last over came in failing light the Fathers needed three vdckets to win and the school needed 26 runs. Two of the wickets fell to idiotic rxm-outs, but Ian Gordon played the last ball safely to secure the draw. It had been a wonderful season for every boy had worked very hard to improve his technique and most of them had made a dramatic improvement. Jim Vernon had become an opening bowler and a solid batsman, Christopher Chapman was at last scoring runs. Peter Senst had acquired the basic batting skills. Perhaps the best indication, however, of the attitude of this team was their performance in the field. They were alert, agile and eager to hold the opposition in check. A wonderful season with the promise of many good ones to come. We were unfortunately not quite as good as we all had hoped. Our batting, in practice was really very effective and en- couraging, but it was a different story altogether during a match. When we needed runs, the wickets fell like rain. An ex- ception to this general rule was the opening duo of Sidford and New, who held up well. Though we certainly had the muscle required for distance batting, we didn ' t have the skill. Our bowling and fielding were our two best areas. Grimm, Freeman, Petersen I, and Thompson were all very capable and showed excellent sport- smanship. Attitude is always crucial and our team did approach each game planning to do their best. David Plank, our Captain, deserves congratuJations for his leader- ship. It was a frustrating season for batsmen but in all the other areas we were generally satisfied. Our two best games were aginst U.C.C. (first match) which played to a draw and S.A.C. wherin Freeman almost signlehandedly destroyed their batsmen in 35 minutes! My thanks to all those on Seconds who gave their best. D.

Third Cricket In term of results, the thirds had a successful season, winning four of their five matches. However in terms of fulfilling their potential, the team fell a long way short. In batting, no one could be reUed on to stay in. McMenemy had one good inning, Moffat and McCulloch played well on occasions, and McNally hit out boldly when runs were needed. However all too often our batsmen ' crashed out ' and struggled hard to make any runs at all. In bowling and fielding we fared a little better. McNally, Archer and Meredith all took wickets, Meredith being the most successful, whilst in the field de Josselin de Jong and Barr held good catches. Bronson and Moffat shared the duties of wicket- keeper and Bronson captained the side very capably. However all things considered, it was a disappointing season.

Fourth Cricket The future of Junior School cricket looks promising if this year ' s team is an indication of the talent that is developing. We won the two games we played and it was evident that a boimtiful sup ply of bowlers and batsmen are emerging. The season was highlighted with superb fielding by Follows and Morris, while Mann, Dawood, Bannister and Morris kept the opponent ' s bats quiet with skilful bowling and batting. FRONT ROW: Row-Lee, Buyshart, Tarbet, Piasecki, Crawford. BACK ROW: Mr. Denison, Lewitt, Graham, Mackay, Home. The Fifth Xi played three matches this term, all against Ridley. We won all three mainly because of our alert fielding. Our catching was particularly im- pressive, with only two catches dropped in the entire season. The outstanding batsmen were imdoubtedly John Easson and Simon Lee who both scored over twenty rims in the first game. When Easson was promoted to the thirds it was James Piasecki who took over the role of run-maker. In Fifth Cricket the final game he played a cap- tain ' s innings scoring a valuable nineteen. Piasecki was also our top bowler. He and Robin Tarbet dismissed most of the Ridley batsmen in all three games, vdth help from reserve bowlers Simon Lee and John Home. Ridley was no match for the all- round ability of our team, although we only beat them by one run in the second game. However, it was not just winning that made this season enjoyable, it was rather the friendly but competitive spirit in which each game we played. Graeme Denison Gym Display There is always a chance for every boy in the Junior School to take part in the annual gym display. The variety of events taking place has never ceased to keep the audience entertained and interested during the per- formance. The grade four class showred energy and enthusiasm as they divided into teams and raced each other aroujid an obstacle course. Grade five took part in an in- teresting dance and grade six did the traditional parachute routine. The grade seven classes per- formed a gymnastics number featuring tv ro human pyramids at the end of the act. Grade eight displayed their talents and finesse in boxing, while the second eight class required strength and co-ordination when they put on a heaving niunber. The well trained junior gym team added thrilling moments to the show and ended it with a grande finale.

Michael Genereux THE LONGEST FIVE MINUTES It was now only five minutes imtil they hit the beach. The Normandy coast was clearly in view and the continuous lines of soldiers wading their way through the deep water, pushing to get to the war- town shore, could be seen. In only five minutes they would have to endure the same experience. They could see many men falling in the water, under the constant German fire coming from the beach, and those who did reach shore could find hardly any shelter. All the men in the landing craft wondered if their blood would add to the blood now in the water and staining the sand. Some prayed, some wished the darn five minutes would end and get it over with, but this was the longest five minutes all of them had ever known. Many thoughts filled the heads of the craft ' s occupants, their faces being constantly sprayed by the cold ocean water, their sweating hands gripping their guns. Then the signal was given. All their thoughts and prayers came to an abrupt halt, as they stood up and made their way out of the craft into the cold sea. The longest five minutes had ended, the longest day was about to P. Robbins FOOTPRINTS A few years ago I was in the Everglades hunting alligators. It was hot so I decided to make camp on the shore. I pitched a tent and made a fire. I was just about to put on some food when I saw some tiny footprints in the sand. These prints were very strange. There were seven toes on each foot. I was intrigued, so I followed their trail. It led away from the beach and into the jimgle. Deeper and deeper into the underbrush I tracked when all of a sudden two creatures jumped out and grabbed me. They were odd-looking things, about three feet high, green, with turned up noses, no hair and wrinkled foreheads. They carried spears and wore cougar skins as clothes. These little people dragged me down a path towards more little men. Then I saw a beautiful sight; a huge kingdom in the trees, miles long. There was a thundering waterfall not far away. I was put into an elevator made of bamboo and powered by the falls. This elevator lifted me up above the falls. At the top I was led across a bridge made of vines. When I reached the other side, I was led into a room covered in skins. At the far end of the room sat a small creature with a crown of golden leaves on his head. He held a staff with a tiny skull on it. Surprisingly enough he spoke to me and said, " Sit down " , in Seminole, the language of the Florida In- dians. I imderstood Seminole because it is widely spoken in the Everglades, and I did as he said. He called himself. King of the Wana Kwanas. " You are an intruder " , he said. " We do not like intruders here. You shall starve in a cell, like all other white in- truders. " At this point I was grabbed and dragged into a small, dark cell and locked up. Himian bones lay all around me. I had to escape! I tried kicking down the walls, but they were soUd. Then I had an idea ! I climbed up in the rafters and called for the guard. He came running and looked through the barred opening. Luckily he did not see me. Frantically he unlocked the door and rushed in. I swrung down and kicked him, knocking him out. Then I ran out of the cell, down a ladder, through the undergrowth, along the path, followed all the way by the tin y screaming creatures. I could run much faster than the little people so I was able to escape to freedom once more. DougoJd O ' Reilly 1 LIGHTNING Lightning is so very bright. It snaps and crackles through the night.

Nick Se erian zoos THE NEW YORK TIMES Dear Sir: When will we tire of imprisoning proud, wild animals in comparatively minute cages so ignorant tourists can gawk at them? They must live in relative Black Holes of Calcutta to please wide-eyed children. Why can ' t we spare a small amount of money to simulate the majestic surroundings of their wild habitat to which we are so deeply indebted? How many times have we seen shadowy wraiths of powerful predators pacing in boring barred cages? We contrast this with the spacious environment of the creatures in Toronto ' s Metro Zoo. This establishment is un- fortimately floimdering, for visitors will not accept the fact that " specimens " are not on display like stuffed, mounted toys, still in life and always on show. For at Metro Zoo, one must walk, yes, actually exercise in order to see wildlife which holds some animation. The idea of walking and having to try to spot animals which may be concealed in foliage seems so incompatible with the pubhc mentality, so much so that many of these zoos are unpatronized. A wave of change is sweeping over this concrete and mortar society, marked by the advent of safari parks where animals are in a semi-natural environment. They flock to the cars in which visitors can lounge in air-conditioned luxury, looking at our magnificent legacy through the symbolic window of indifference. Sincerely, Don Kendalls David Bowen ,. J 196 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory CFr COlkl V i!l m t I This must be the greatest team effort of all since the time and talents of about fifty people combined to entertain two evening and two matinee audiences. And what a com- bination of talents it was! An ingeniously designed set requiring many hours of work from the carpenters, painters and scene- shifters created a fantasy setting in which Willy Wonka and his Oompa-Loompas could chujn out their river of chocolate and their scrumptious confections. What enthusiasm they showed in their work, and how proudly Mark Duncan (Willy Wonka) showed his visitors round his establishment. To complete the staging and to help the actors play their parts effectively, the costumes were a kaleidescope of colour, and the make-up required much skill from those who were producing old people and fictional beings from exotic lands. The performance, however, did more than merely fascinate with clever staging. The children who won " golden tickets " , giving them the right to tour the chocolate factory, did appear to be rather a nasty lot. Danny Moses (Augustus Gloop) was greedy, Julie Royse (Veronica Salt) had to have everything. Daphne Humphreys (Violet Beauregarde) did live in a " gummy " world and Neil Atkinson (Mike Teevee) really did seem infatuated by the T.V. What a relief it was to have the wholesome, smiling and rather impish James Mairs (Charlie Bucket) to restore our confidence in the world of children. Of course his wholesomeness grew out of his environment, a happy family of modest means whose three generations hved closely together. Steven Petersen (Grampa Joe) was a wise old man, and Tom Benson (Mr. Bucket) and Michael Lewis (Mrs. Bucket) were a homely and contented couple. How unusual it 199 was to see a family looking after its ancestors; there was a bed full of them all rubbing toes together. Andrew Crawford-Brown, David Mutimer and Robert Evans complained, wise-cracked and laughed together. Perhaps the most enthusiastic actor, after Willy Wonka himself, was Evan Wood (storekeeper) who leaped rejoicing all over his store after selling the last golden ticket to Charlie. However, Noel Peacock (Mayor) showed great gusto and flair when introducing the lucky ticket holders. Although the hours of preparation had been long, the show was enjoyed by all who participated since they all con- tributed to its success. What will our imaginative producer, Mr. Boyd, go for next year? An Alice in Wonderland, a Narnia, or a Star Wars theme? I am sure we all look forward to it eagerly. Mr. Nightingaie Otoe m ■ — i c : FB Ki I I ) I f I ; ! At nearly 5:30 in the evening of Friday, March 15, a sluggish stream of parents and boys flowed into the gym. While the audience was settling down, behind the conred curtain there was a flurry of activity, actors reciting their lines and cues, gymnasts honing their skills and a general mass of people preparing for the upcoming Talent Night. The curtain rose; or rather, parted to reveal a black and rather weatherbeaten piano played by a variety of budding I musicians for nearly ten minutes while the audience broke in with perfunctory applause at designated intervals. The piano gave way to a number of other instrvunents, including violin, flute and clarinet. There followed two impassioned recitations ranging from " The Slave " to " The Seven Ages of Man " by William Shakespeare, performed by Mark Duncan and James Mairs. As a complete change of pace, the audience was treated to a fine exhibition of tumbling and Talent Night acrobatics by the Junior Gym Team. An unforgettable rendition of Paul Bunyan ' s French- Canadian ancestry followed. This was attempted by an enthusiastic if inexperienced Grade Four class. A Monty Python sketch {Pepall and Pepall) followed to provide us with " something completely different " . Next on the programme came a hilarious short play named the Crimson Coconut. It was aptly billed as an " absurdity in one act " and was a complete success. A magician, Michael PepaU, then followed, baffling many with his illusory powers. Under the auspices of Mr. Boyd the mime troupe delighted us with stories vdthout words, ranging from " Kitchen Madness " to " Human Bacon " and imitations of various teachers. The last performance was that of the Black Light Troupe whose performance was amusing with its limiinous white clothing. Talent Night was enjoyable both for most of the audience and for al l the boys who performed. 201 Activities rt ' iK ' ■■ ' ' j. «:a!i MODELS: A Thursday activity supervised by Mr. Shorney. Boys bring in their own models and work on them during the fourty- five minute periods. CHESS: A Thursday activity where boys come to challenge each other in a friendly game of chess. Then the top competitors go to challenge competitors at other schools. ART: A widely increasing Thursday activity supervised by Mr. McConnell where boys come to improve their artistic skills. PHOTOGRAPHY: A photography class supervised by Mr. Snowdon was a great success this year while many boys took pictures for the Argus. DEBATING: A Thursday activity consisting of 5-6 boys were taught the skills of debating. With the great coaching of Mrs. Dickens boys went on to debate against other schools and have small competitions between themselves. GYMNASTICS: The gymnastics activity on Thursday afternoon involved about 10-13 people in the Junior School training for gym displays and for some com- petitions. Thanks for the great coaching to Mr. Bailey! 202 T .-« Tribal Competition mi s e n e c a M o h a w k - a»9 ■■! jV ' -. m c a y u g a Tribal Champs Oneida CAYUGA Soccer 1 Cross-Country 4 Swimming 4 Cross-Country (team) 4 Basketball 1 Swimming 3 Hockey 2 Squash 1 1 2 General Knowledge 2 1 2 Academic (Fall) 3 Academic (Winter) 2 Effort (FaU ) 3 Effort (Winter) 2 Academic (Spring) 3 Track and Field 1 Tennis Chess 4 Cricket 2 1 2 Academic Improvement 2 MOHAWK 4 1 2 2 1 2 4 1 3 1 1 2 4 2 4 1 1 2 1 1 3 1 1 2 4 1 ONEIDA 2 3 3 21 2 2 4 1 4 2 1 2 3 4 4 4 2 3 2 1 2 4 SENECA 3 2 1 1 3 2 4 3 1 1 1 1 1 2 3 2 4 1 1 2 1 3 TOTALS 45 42 54 1 2 38 206 .
