Benson, K. R. MacKenzie, L. C. Irvine, D. F. Macorquodale. Exchange Editor A. B. Brodie Ad jertising Editor and Treasurer Mr. W. H. Hewitt EDITORIAL We can look back upon a successful year. In football and in hockey we have every reason to be proud of the games against bigger schools ; in cricket, in our first year in the Ottawa Valley League, we finished in the second position. J. S. Irvin was the outstanding schoolboy athlete in Ottawa. In work, we had as many successful candidates for Matriculation as usual, and we won an Ottawa Valley Scholarship. But it is important that we look forward with purpose into the future, and pleased as we may be with the past we should never feel that the past record cannot be bettered. We should be guided by tradition, but the future will not bring great honours if we, complacent, fail to seek greater and greater heights. This year we have a record roll and a record number of boarders. With our larger numbers we must remember that it is not the outstanding athletes and the outstanding scholars who make or mar a school, but it is the attitude towards work and play of every member of the school which matters. One man not playing the game and not realizing the responsibilities which are his when he is given the privilege of wearing the school cap, will smirch the good name earned by a hundred loyal Ashburians. Ashbury has no motto. May we suggest that, even if it be not adopted as the official motto, that we take as our guide in the school the principle that we should be " inspired by love, and guided by knowledge. " 2 THE ASHBURIAN SCHOOL NOTES. George Drummond has very kindly given the sum of one hundred dollars to be expended on new books for the Senior Library. The thanks of the School are gratefully tendered to him. It is hoped that his example will act as a spur to other old boys to " Go and do likewise " . New Class rooms. By the kind generosity of Mrs. W. H. Rowley, two very nice, airy and convenient class rooms have been added to the School. They have been built in the space between the Chapel Wing and the Main Building, and they are proving a most useful and valu- able addition to our equipment. They were built in memory of Mrs. Rowley ' s husband, the late William Horsley Rowley, who was the first President of the Board of Governors of Ashbury. The thanks of the School are most sincerely tendered to Mrs. Rowley for her most generous gift. New Masters. We welcome to the School the three Masters who joined us in September last. THE ASHBURIAN 3 Mr. W. H. J. Weston, B. Sc. of Merchant-Taylors ' School, Crosby, honour graduate of London University and late Mathe- matical and Science Master at The Imperial Services College, Windsor. Mr. Dudley Phillips, B.A. of The High School, Cardiff, and graduate in Classical Honours of the University of Wales. Mr. C. L. Price, B.A. of Malborough College and of Selwyn College Cambridge, late assistant master at Leeds Grammar School. We all regret the departure of Mr. Kei;, who has left us to de- vote himself to Hterary work. We all join in wishing Mr Ker a very happy and successful future. We shall long remember him as a great athlete, a keen scholar and an excellent teacher. The New Infirmary. As was announced by the Headmast er at the Closing last June, it is proposed to raise the money to build a School Infirmary, for which there is very pressing need. A rough estimate by the Archi- tect places the cost of this new building at about $20,000. All pre- sent and past parents, old boys and those interested in the welfare of Ashbury are earnestly asked to contribute. This is an excellent opportunity for those who are blessed with worldly wealth to follow the example of those many others who have helped Ashbury in the past and to make a really handsome donation ; but all sub- scriptions, however small, will be gratefully welcome. We wish, if possible to commence to build the new Infirmary next Spring, so that it will be ready for use when School reopens in September. Donations, or promises of such, should be sent to the Headmaster. On Tuesday, September 18th, our President, Col. Woods paid one of his always welcome visits to us. He gave a short address to the school, speaking especially to the new boys and new masters, and afterwards asked for a half-holiday, which was given that afternoon. The Rev. Harold Chester-Master, M.A., M.C., who was a mas- ter at Ashbury from 1922 to 1925, has been appointed headmaster of Bishops Stortford School, England, where Cecil Rhodes was educated. From 1920 to 1922 he was chaplain of Moorland House School, Cheshire. He was awarded the Military Cross in 1919, for 4 THE ASHBURIAN bravery in helping a stretcher-party to get some wounded to safety. The doctor and the stretcher-bearers were killed, and Captain Chester-Master received five wounds. A tablet to the memory of Reginald May has been placed in the Chapel, and was unveiled by the Headmaster during the clos- ing service for the last school year. The sermon was preached by the Rev. E. F. Salmon, rector of the Cathedral. On Friday, September 21st, Robert Woollcombe Brodie was christened in the School Chapel. The ceremony was performed by the Headmaster, and sponsors were Mrs. H. Cheney, E. C. N. Ed- wards and E. M. Woollcombe. The following boys passed their Matriculation for Arts at McGill :— R. Baldwin K. MacKenzie R. Bowman, Ottawa Valley Scholarship A. Clarke S.

Irvin, J. C. Wilson, G. Southam, J. Oppe, A. H. Fauquier, C. Gausden, P. B. Smellie, W. Bonnar, I. Dewar, J. MacBrien, R. Bowman. This year for the first time Ashbury competed in the Ottawa Valley Cricket League. As a result far more matches were played than in former years. A number of the games were very close and we can look back upon a very enjoyable season. Our thanks are due to the executive of the O.V.C.C. for doing their best to arrange a fixture list to fit in with our inability to play during July and August. At the end of the season Ashbury was second in the League with 50 per cent. Christ Church C.C.C. was first with 75 per cent. The Interprovincial match, Ontario v Quebec was played at Rideau Hall this year and won by Ontario. Ashbury had one representative in Gordon Southam. Although he did not come ofif with the bat he distinguished himself in the field. In a number of the matches played in the O.V.C.C. schedule Ashbury played a team composed of masters and boys. The School XI played six matches, won three, drew one and lost two. Mr. Plumbley, who used to play for Nottinghamshire 2nd County XI, was with us for a fortnight. Net practice started at 7 a.m. and continued at every possible opportunity during the day. 8 THE ASHBURIA N The results of the painstaking and keen coaching were very evi- dent. Next year we hope that Mr. Plumbley will be with us for a longer time. Southam was top of the batting averages with an average of 26.4 for 7 innings. Fauquier started the season very well with 63 not out and 66, but he fell off during the season and developed a very weak back stroke which proved his undoing. Irvin on a few occasions was very aggressive and gave a nice display of hitting. Oppe won the bat for the most improved cricketer. He came on considerably and played some some very pretty innings. Gausden, Bonnar and Smellie all lived up to their previous promise and each one played several good innings. MacBrien started late but was batting very well at the end of the season. Our two left-handers Dewar and Wilson were very good between the wickets, and when in together helped themselves to some daring singles. The bowling was not as strong as we should have liked it to have been. Fauquier won the bowling averages with an average of 7.6. Wilson did not bowl as well this year as last. Oppe was quite the most valuable bowler on the team. He used his head well and never became erratic. Bowman was bowling well at the end of the season. The fielding with a few notable exceptions was not up to the usual Ashbury standard. Fielding is just as important as either batting or bowling and must be practised at every opportunity. Several of the matches which we lost by a narrow margin were lost through dropped catches and bad picking up. Mrs. James Wilson of Montreal has given to the School, two very handsome trophies for the highest batting average and the best bowling average respectively. The frieze on the bowling trophy is from a photograph taken during a test match at Mel- bourne in 1924, when Hobbs and Sutcliffe batted all day for 273 against Australia ' s total of 600. The figures on the bat are also taken from photographs of actual players, the batsman in the centre being K. L. Hutchings of Kent finishing an off drive. CRICKET CHARACTERS 1928. J. S. Irvin (Captain) — Captained the side with judgment. Could hit hard and played several useful innings. At wicket, he kept the byes down but was not quite as smart at taking the ball as last year. If he sticks to the game he might make a very useful scoring batsman. J. C. Wilson (Vice-Captain) — His bowling was not as consistently good as last year but he was still very difficult to play on oc- casions. His batting improved considerably. A very good judge of a run and surprisingly fast between the wickets. THE ASHBURIAN 9 G. Southam — Batted as well as ever and with more patience than he used to show. A safe catch in any part of the field. A brilliant ground field at cover-point. J. Oppe — A stylish bat. His timing was excellent, with the result that he made runs without any apparent effort. A slow bowler who never minded how many runs were scored off him while he was working out a plan to get his wicket. An admirable cricket temperament as he always appreciated the game whether he himself was successful or not. A. H. Fauquier — An aggressive bat who showed great promise at the beginning of the season but went out of form. A medium paced bowler. Was inclined to become erratic when hit and then lost all length. C. Gausden — A good bat with plenty of strokes. He must hit the ball a little harder and then should consistently make big scores. Shows promise as a bowler, having a natural swing. P. B. Smellie — Has a number of good strokes and can be relied upon to make runs off fast bowling but could not time slow. A clean and smart ground field who was sometimes brilliant. W. Bonnar — A sound bat who should make a lot of runs next year. Always to be relied on in the field, his catching at mid-ofif being very good. 1. Dewar — A left handed bat, very difficult to displace. His style is not free enough to allow his making many runs but so long as he did not try to score he could do his job by keeping his wicket up. A useful change bowler to put on to break up a partnership as his pecuHar action was deceptive. J. MacBrien — Developed into a good first wicket batsman. A slow scorer but has a number of sound strokes and would improve steadily. R. Bowman — A slow medium bowler who keeps a steady length and uses his head well. E. Beardmore — Did not get into form with the bat at all, though he showed good batting in the nets. Must remember that he has hands to field with and not rely on his shins. 10 THE ASHBURIAN ASHBURY COLLEGE vs. OTTAWA C. C. Innings of Ashbury College A. Fauquier, c. sub. b. Craig 4 C. Gausden, b.

ASHBURY COLLEGE vs. THE STAFF In a game played at Ashbury on Wednesday, May 16th under ideal Cricket conditions, the School team decisively defeated the Staff by 115 runs. The School batted first and soon met with dis- aster when Irvin was bowled with the score at 8. Fauquier joined Oppe, and they took the score to 95 before Oppe was caught by Mr. Benson. Oppe ' s share of the partnership was an even 50 made by beautiful cricket. His timing was perfect. The next two wickets fell at 104. Then Gausden joined Fauquier and the part- nership realized 45 before Fauquier was bowled by a ball which kept very low. Fauquier had made 59 in characteristicly aggres- THE ASHBURIAN 11 sive style. Smellie joined Gausden and another useful stand took place. Gausden left at 164 of which he had contributed 31 by some very attractive batting. The next wickets fell quickly until Cann came in at the fall of the 8th, Cann and Smellie then took the score to 194 before Smellie was caught. Smellie had made 28 by good cricket, his leg shots being especially strong. The last wicket fell at 209. The Staff went in to make 209 in an hour and three quarters. Mr. Pattisson and Mr. Wright opened. Having made the first 10, Mr. Pattisson was well caught byi Bonnar at mid-off. Mr. Whit- field joined Mr. Wright, but the wicket only added 8 runs before Mr. Wright was well caught by Garland. The next wicket looked like making a useful stand, but at 39 Plumbey was caught by Bonnar. The wickets then fell regularly until Mr. Clarabut joined Mr. Whitfield and they added 20 runs before Mr. Whitfield was stumped for a very useful 36. The innings closed for 94. The School thoroughly deserved their win. The fielding was first rate especially that of Bonnar and Smellie.

The sky was over- cast and rain seemed imminent. Southam and Gausden opened the innings to the bowling of Black and Kenny. Both batsmen started with confidence, Southam particularly being very aggressive. With the score at 19, Gausden stopped a straight ball from Black with his pads and was out L.B.W. Irvin joined Southam, and, with both batsmen batting well, the score was taken to 57 before Irvin was out L.B.W. Eight runs later Southam was well caught in the deep by Fuller. Southam had played a very sound innings which included four fours and eight twos. Fauquier was next to go. He started well, but before he was set he ran up the pitch to hit Black out of the ground and missing the ball he was clean bowled. After this wicket play was stopped for lunch. After lunch Oppe and Smellie went in against the same two bowlers, who bowled unchanged throughout the innings. Both batsmen were settling down when Oppe was beaten by a good ball from Kenny, and, with the score unchanged, Smellie mistimed a straight full pitch from Black and was also bowled. It now began to rain really hard, and the game was held up for a quarter of an hour. On resuming Dewar and Wilson were given orders to hit. They hit at everything and ran everything they hit, with the result that the score quickly rose to 112 before Dewar was caught for a very useful 18. Rain had come on again and B. C. S. decided that it was too wet to continue, so the match was abandoned. Wilson was left not out 15. 14 THE ASHBURIAN 1st Innings of Ashbury. J. MacBrien E. Beardmore W. Bonnar Extras Did not bat G.

ASHBURY COLLEGE vs. LOWER CANADA COLLEGE Played at Lower Canada, Friday, May 25th. Lower Canada won the toss and took the innings. Salter and Minnion faced Wilson and Oppe. The bowling was steady, and with the fielding side well on their toes, runs were difficult to make. In Oppe ' s third over he clean bowled Minnion. Stevenson ' s wicket fell in the next over to Wilson. Salter was batting with confidence and scoring ofif the few loose balls that were sent down. Kaye, who followed Stevenson, was completely deceived by Oppe and failed to score. He was followed by Johnson. With Salter play- ing carefully at the other end, Johnson began an aggressive attack on the bowling. Wilson was replaced by Fauquier. The change was immediately successful, Fauquier bowling Salter in his first over and getting Ralph L.B.W. with the next ball. Johnson was well taken at the wicket in Oppe ' s next over and then a procession started, Fauquier clean bowled Willis, Bradley was caught by Dewar off Oppe and McCuaig was stumped off Oppe by Irvin. The fourth wicket fell at 25 the seventh at 25 and the ninth at 27. Then came a stand between Stewart and Carsley. Stewart playing a forcing game and Carsley contenting himself with keeping his wicket intact. Stewart was finally bowled by Fauquier for a very useful 16. Southam and Gausden opened Ashbury ' s innings to the bowl- ing of Salter and Ralph. Gausden was first to go, through his prevalent habit of putting his legs in front of a straight ball. Irvin joined Southam and was also out L.B.W. but not before the L.C.C. total had been passed. Fauquier played back to the first ball he THE ASHBURIAN 15 received, a fast good length and was clean bowled. Oppe then joined Southam and both batsmen showed some very attractive batting before Oppe was caught at mid-on by Stevenson. Smellie followed, after giving a chance in his first over he settled down and batted confidently, until well caught by Stevenson at long-leg. Southam played across a straight ball from Salter and was bowled. He had played a valuable innings of 58 without giving a chance. Dewar and Wilson were in together and ran some characteristically daring runs. MacBrien, Beardmore and Bonnar failed to score and the innings closed for 121. L. C. C. went in again and there being nothing to lose adopted hitting tactics. Salter and Johnson collared the bowling and in spite of numerous changes of bowlers 48 was up before Johnson was caught by Southam. Minnion and Stevenson did not give much trouble, but Ralph followed the example of Salter, who was still in, and remained undefeated until the innings was declared closed when he had completed his 50. Ashbury were left an hour to play. Any hopes that L. C. C. had of disposing of them for a small score and so pulling the game out of the fire were soon dispelled when Gausden and Southam wisely decided to touch nothing that was not on the wicket. Nine maiden overs were bowled before Gausden decided that he would like to try the other end and so ran a single. He was bowled in the next over, Irvin went in. He started carefully but his patience was soon exhausted and he hit Bradley for fours off two successive balls. It then started to rain and stumps were drawn. Southam carried his bat, he had batted for forty-five minutes without touch- ing a loose ball and deserves much credit for his restraint. This innings of Southam ' s was just as valuable as his previous one of 58. Had his wicket fallen easily there is no knowing what the rest of the team might have done. They might have played out time; on the other hand it was the end of the day, with L. C. C. encouraged by success, the wickets might have fallen quickly, and a game which had been considered won, thereby lost. 16 THE ASHBURIAN ASHBURY COLLEGE vs. LOWER CANADA COLLEGE. Played at L. C. C.

Ashbury won the toss and went in, Southam and Gausden fac- ing the bowling of Aldridge and Coles. With the score at 12 Gaus- den was run out. Irvin, who followed, scored a single and was then bowled by Aldridge. Fauquier scored three before being bowled by Edwards and Oppe ' s wicket fell immediately. With the score at 17 for 4 Ashbury ' s chances did not look very promising. Smellie THE ASHBURIAN 19 jointed Southam and contented himself with trying to remain in while Southam scored. The result was a useful stand which raised the score to 31 before Southam who had made 17 was caught. Dewar joined Smellie, but was immediately sent back by Stevens. Wilson went in and settled down to play carefully. Smellie left at 36 and Bowman 3 runs later, then Bonnar joined Wilson. The stand which followed was probably the most valuable made for Ashbury during the season. Coming together with the score at 39 for 8 wickets both batsmen played carefuly and let the runs come. The bowling began to get looser under this treatment and Bonnar was finally able to help himself to a couple of fours on the leg side. Wilson was caught by King with the score at 74 out of which his share was 13, all singles. Bonnar left at 77, and the innings closed for 80. Not a big score, but bigger than it had looked like being and, as it turned out, big enough, thanks to Oppe ' s bowling, to win the game. Coles and Orbinski opened the Defence innings to the bowling of Bowman and Wilson. Runs came fast and Bonnar was put on for Wilson. With the score 23, Coles was well caught in the slips by Oppe. Edwards fell to a good catch in the deep by Gausden, and then Orbinski, who was scoring freely, was smartly taken by Smellie at cover. Stevens and King scored steadily until King hit Oppe for two successive fours. He tried to do the same with the next ball and fell into the trap so carefully laid by the bowler and was caught by Wilson. Heathely followed and faced the bowling of Fauquier, who had relieved Oppe. He hit the first ball to the boundary for four and then settled down to careful batting, while Stevens continued to score. Dewar was put on for Fauquier and, in his second over, broke up the partnership by catching Heathely. Oppe was put on again and bowled Fulford off his first ball, 7 wickets for 68. The eighth wicket fell ?t 70 and the ninth at 75. Oppe was bowling to Stevens. The second, Stevens hit for 2, the third was slow, straight and a good length. Stevens tried to pull it for the winning 4, he miss-hit and was caught by Oppe. The last man came in. Oppe sent down another slow good length ball which came in just enough to take the bails, and so an exciting game ended with Ashbury winning by three runs. 20 THE ASHBURIAN ASHBURY COLLEGE vs. DEFENCE HEADQUARTERS Innings of Ashbury College.

Mr. Gausden and Mr. Bonnar gave them an excellent start. The Ashbury bowlers were inclined to be erratic and did not keep their usual length, so the score mounted fairly quickly, but the Fathers ' first pair batted very well and, aided by two lives in the field, were not separated until the score had reached 91, Mr. Bonnar being then caught in the slips by Oppe. At 110, MacBrien brought Mr. Gausden ' s innings to a close by holding on to a good catch. He had given a delightful display of free hitting all round the wicket. Lunch was taken shortly after- wards with the score standing at 116 for 2. When play was resumed Mr. Wright and Mr. Whitfield took the score to 136, when the latter was bowled. Mr. Brodie joined Mr. V right and another good stand followed. Both batsmen hit freely 22 THE ASHBURIAN and the score was taken to 186 before another wicket fell. The Ashbury bowlers now began to assume command; wickets fell fairly regularly and in spite of some good strokes by Mr. Harry Southam, the innings closed for 212, quite a creditable total. Ashbury opened with Southam and Gausden, and batting steadi- ly took the score to 16, when Southam played over the top of a good length ball from Mr. Gausden and was bowled. Oppe joined Gaus- den and a really good stand followed. They naturally took no risks as a win was out of the question, but both played the correct game under the circumstances. When the score had reached 62, Oppe was bowled by Mr. Wright. Irvin followed in and another good partner- ship seemed likely when Irvin was run out by a return from deep third man, 82 for 3. Fauquier came next and stayed some time with Gausden, being eventually bowled at 106. There was not much time left and all Ashbury could do was to try and save the game. Mac- Brien was quickly caught at the wicket, and two further wickets fell for the addition of seven runs, but Wilson defended resolutely and succeeded in keeping his wicket intact, so stumps were drawn with the score standing at 126 for 7. Gausden had played a good innings and carried out his bat for a very sound 55. THE ASHBURIAN 23 Score : — The Fathers. Mr. Gausden, c. MacBrien, b. Oppe 63 Mr. Bonnar, c. Oppe, b.

HOUSE MATCHES In the first round, played on May 28, Ottawa played Montreal. Montreal batted first and made 71. Beardmore 25 and Coristine 12, were the top scorers. Ottawa started badly, losing their five best wickets for 28. Dewar, who was batting well, was then joined by Ewart and the score taken to 43. Dewar, who made 22, was caught and bowled by Bonnar and the next three wickets fell quickly. Then Grant and Rowley came together, and amid great excitement, took the score to 68 before Rowley was bowled by Bonnar for 8. Grant carried his bat for 6. In the second round, played on June 7th, Montreal met Dom- inion. Montreal batted first and made 95, Gausden 12, Oppe 19, Bonnar 15 and Ritchie 13. Dominion sent Southam and J. Mac- Brien in. Southam ' s wicket fell at 8 and Cann, who followed him, was sent back without any addition to the score. Fauquier and Mac- 24 THE ASHBURIAN Brien then took the score to 67, of which Fauquier made 50, before being bowled by Bonnar. The 4th wicket fell at 74 and the fifth at 75, then El wood and MacBrien took the score to 92 before Elwood . was bowled by Bonnar. The remaining runs were made without further loss of wickets, and stumps were drawn when Dominion had made 97. MacBrien carried his bat for a valuable 28. The other not out was W. MacBrien, who made 1. INTERMEDIATE CRICKET We had a very good season last year and the standard of play generally showed some improvement, which augurs well for the future. Considerable keenness was displayed and the amount of rolling which was carried out in the early morning was not without effect on the standard of cricket, as the team reaped the advantage of improved wickets which their own enthusiasm had made possible. There was keen competition for places on the side and more often the main difficulty was to decide whom to leave out. In batting, Elwood and W. MacBrien, and in a lesser degree Perodeau, were the mainstays of the side. Elwood was very neat and effective on the leg side, and if he is able to produce some scoring shots on the off he should develop next year into a dependable first wicket batsman. He is also a wicket keeper of more than average ability, and takes the ball cleanly without any unnecessary flourish. MacBrien is quite a strong ofif side player, who made most of his runs through the covers, but at present his timing of leg balls is poor. Perodeau has a natural straight drive which he used to good effect in the match with Lower Canada, but his defence, though not always ineffective, is at present rather crude. He was also a useful change bowler. Henderson batted well at times and has a good off shot, though his defence still needs improvement. Craig captained the side with sound judgment and was not afraid of experimenting with his bowling, but his captaincy appeared to affect his batting, as he never really got going. F. Coristine shows promise and may develop into a useful forcing batsman but at present does not always show judgment in selecting the right ball to hit. There was plenty of bowling in the side, as, in addition to Perodeau, Kelly, N. Gillies, D. Fauquier, Henderson and F. Coris- tine were all useful. The most promising feature in this respect was the good length which was consistently kept which after all is the foundation of all bowling. Finger spin can be developed later. The side was keen and effective in the field, Henderson and Craig on the off side being particularly good. Robinson converted from wicket keeper to slip fieldsman showed considerable aptitude in his new position. THE ASHBURIAN 25 Two matches were played during the earHer weeks of May. The first against the " Mohawks, " resulted in a draw. The School batted first and made 87, and when stumps were drawn had secured six of their opponents ' wickets for 67. The following week the " Gen- tlemen of Rockliffe " were met and defeated. The School again batted first, totalling 85. Fielding very keenly and keeping a steady length with the bowHng they dismissed " The Gentlemen " for 34. On Saturday, May 28th, the team went to Montreal to play the annual match with Lower Canada College. Ashbury won the toss and batted first. They quickly lost a wicket, but MacBrien and Elwood, batting very steadily, soon had the measure of the bowling and added 50 runs before the latter was bowled for 26. Three more wickets fell cheaply but Perodeau then joined MacBrien and another good stand ensued. Perodeau started shakily but soon settled down and drove cleanly. They were not separated until the score had reached 104, when Perodeau ran himself out in attempting an impos- sible run. Kelly and Coristine both batted well and the innings eventually closed for 135. The running between wickets was keen and extremely well judged. Lower Canada then went in and lost three wickets before a run had been scored. They never recovered from their bad start and the whole side was dismissed for 12. The Ashbury bowlers kept a good length and were well backed up by the field which was intelligently set, but it was obvious that L.C.C. were short of practice. They fol- lowed on and did better at their second attempt, but never really got on top of the bowling which was well handled by Craig. The last man was caught in the slips ten minutes before time with the total standing at 44, Ashbury winning by an innings and 83 runs. Score : — Ashbury College. Elwood, b. RoncareUi 26 Guthrie, b.

The final betw een Ottawa and Dominion was left unfinished owing to bad weather. Dominion scored 108 but Ottawa were unable to bat. THE ASHBURIAN 27 JUNIOR CR ICKET. The standard of Junior Cricket showed an improvement this year, in spite of the shortness of the season. This was due, in part, to better equipment ; in part, also, to the large number of keen young players — volunteers to roll the pitch in the morning were never wanting. It was possible to arrange only one match ; and the visiting team contained three or four players who were too strong for a strictly junior side. Their play was a treat to watch, and although we were easily defeated the experience gained was certainly valuable. Southam III captained the eleven which consisted of : Calder, Johnston, Davidson. Svmington. Gait II, Sherwood II, McGuckin, MacBrien Til, Powell II, Cowans 11. The junior cricket bat was awarded to Calder who played con- sistently well throughout the season ; Symington also distinguished himself, his bowling being particularly eflfective. Wodehouse 11. a promising all-rounder, was unfortunately absent for most of the term through illness. The House matches both produced close finishes. Dominion beat Montreal by four runs and were then in turn defeated by Ottawa by 36 runs to 34, although at one stage they were only three runs behind with five wickets in hand. LAWN TENNIS. Owing to the lateness and slowness of the thaw if was not pos- sible to start tennis until well on in the term. Nevertheless all the tournaments were finished before Closing Day. In addition, the Fauquier — Ker Cup Match was played and the result was a com- fortable win for the boys, the masters winning only about a third of the games played. The results of the tournament were : — Open Singles — G. Southam beat A. Fauquier in the final 6-4, 6-4, Senior Doubles — G. Stanfield and G. Forbes beat R. Bowman and J. MacBrien in the final 6-2, 6-4, 6-1. The closest match was in the semi-finals when the eventual winners beat W. MacBrien and A Fauquier 9-7, 3-6, 6-2. Intermediate Doubles — Won by D. Fauquier and J. Symington. Junior Doubles — Won by M. MacBrien and North. 28 THE ASHBURIAN SPORTS DAY Sports Day was on Wednesday, June 14th. The weather was ideal both for the contestants and the spectators, as, ahhough it was v arm, a strong breeze was blowing from the south which helped the runners at the finish of all the races and allowed the fast times which were obtained in the short races, and also it kept away the mosquitoes. A large number of visitors was present. The event which seemed to evoke the greatest enthusiasm was the House Tug-o-War. At the completion of the sports programme the Headmaster gave his annual address reviewing the work of the past school year. He also announced that through the generosity of Mrs. W. H. Rowley two new class-rooms were to be built during the summer vacation. After the address of the Headmaster Col. Woods made a short speech in which he congratulated Dr. WooUcombe on the noteworthy accomplishments of the school during the past year. In thanking all those who had so generously made contributions to the sports prize fund, he thanked especially Mrs. James Wilson, of Montreal, for the two new trophies, for the best batter of the year and for the best bowler, which are among the most magnificent prizes which Ashbury possesses. The general proficiency prizes were then presented by Col. Woods, and the sports prizes by Mrs. Woods, Mrs. W. H. Rowley, Mrs. H. S. Southam, and Mrs. G. E. Fauquier.

THE ASHBURIAN 31 SOCCER Five matches were played by the Soccer team this year, two against the staff, two against St. Albans and one against the Cham- pions of the Ottawa and District Football Association. The first staff game was played in a downpour on Friday, October 5th, and won by the School, 4-3. Saturday, October 6th, the School played ' ' The Ottawa Scot- tish. " The Scottish gave a very fine display of ball control and Soccer " tactics, and won an interesting game 5-1. Gilmour scored Ashbury ' s one goal. Saturday, October 13th, thanks to the kindness of Mrs. Southam, Mrs. Fauquier and Mr. Ewart, the team was able to make a trip to St. Albans by private cars. This is the first year Ashbury has played St. Albans at Brockville. We hope it will become a regular fixture. St. Albans, who play " Soccer " all the season, were more experienced than Ashbury and won 3-0. In the return Staff game played on Thursday, November 8th, the Staff won 3-2. Mr. Phillips and Mr. Weston scored for the staff and Fauquier and Forbes scored the school goals. On November 10th St. Albans came up for their return fixture. Ashbury showed great improvement on their previous form and held St. Albans to 1-0. Grant was a source of considerable strength to Ashbury in goal. He was often brilliant. Mackenzie worked hard at back and in the second St. Albans game his work was very effective. Irvine, also, filled his position at back well. Stanfield did not have much ex- perience at centre half but broke up a number of St. Alban ' s threats. Elwood at right half was always reliable, his ball control was easily the best on the field. Beardmore marked his wing well and cleared v ell. Southam, a very good centre half, also played well on the right wing, his centreing being very accurate. Smellie, at centre forward, always worked hard, both in attack and defence. He passes well, and when he strengthens his shot, will be very useful. MacBrien, another hard worker, was not as fast as last year. Forbes, on the left wing, came into the side late and shows considerable pro- mise. Bates II worked hard but was very short of practice. Gausden, who played right wing before he was hurt at Rugby, did not use his speed to so much advantage as he did last year. Fauquier was the potential goal getter on the team and it was unfortunate that the doctor would not let him play in the second St. Alban ' s game. We were not able to have a match with L. C. C. this year, as they had not a spare date. 32 THE ASHBURIAN THE ASHBURIAN 33 ASHBURY COLLEGE vs. ST. ALBAN ' S Played at Brockville, Saturday, October 13th. St. Alban ' s 3, Ashbury 0 Ashbury won the toss and chose to play against the wind. For the first twenty minutes play was very even with both goals having some narrow escapes. St. Albans showed a slight superiority both in marking their men and playing their positions. Loomis opened the scoring for St. Albans with a shot which Robinson had no chance to save. Ashbury threatened but found Grant very steady and con- fident. Shortly before half-time Loomis showing a nice turn of speed got away and dribbling through the backs scored again. Half- time, St. Alban ' s 2, Ashbury 0. In the second half, playing with the wind Ashbury pressed the St. Alban ' s goal but found the St. Alban ' s backs and goal keeper a consistent stumbling block. Farr, who played very hard throughout the game, took the ball right in and, in spite of a great effort to smother the shot on the part of Elwood, he scored St. Alban ' s third goal. For the last fifteen minutes Ashbury had most of the game but the sound marking of the St. Alban ' s backs and halves prevented them scoring. Loomis was unfortunately forced to retire with an injury to his knee. For St. Albans the five forwards all worked hard and showed good combination. The two wings used their speed to advantage. Grant was cool and confident and handled everything that came to him. Farr, for the amount of work he did, was the outstanding player on the St. Alban ' s team. Robinson in the Ashbury goal saved a number of shots and showed good judgment in coming out at the right moments. Stan- field, who was playing in a new position, worked well. Fauquier and Smellie were the best of the forwards, passing well and follow- ing up hard until no-side. Mackenzie and Elwood worked very hard throughout. Elwood ' s foot-work was especially noticeable on a ground which made the ball very difficult to control. Line-up — Ashbury : Robinson, goal ; Mackenzie, Irvine, backs ; Elwood, Stanfield, Beardmore, half-backs ; Gaudsen, Gilmour, Smellie, Fauquier, MacBrien, forwards. St. Alban ' s : Grant, goal ; Burnett, Stewart, backs ; Loomis, Lynch, half-backs; Ferguson, Christmas, Farr, Hutton, Loomis, forwards. 2nd XI vs. St. Alban ' s 2nd XI This game was played at Ashbury on Saturday, November 10th. During the first half the game was fairly even, both goals having rather narrow escapes. The Ashbury forwards always looked a little more dangerous, but weak finishing prevented any score. 34 THE ASHBURIAN In the second half Ashburv soon began to assume command and in seven minutes ' time were a goal up. A good passing run by the forwards was well finished off when Kelly shot into the corner of the net. Ashbury were definitely superior for the remainder of the game but St. Alban ' s often threatened the home goal with sporadic raids. During the last ten minutes Ashbury attacked hotly, but un- steadiness in front of goal spoiled their efforts. Three minutes before no side, Kelly slipped between the backs, drew the goal- keeper forward and shot into an empty net, and the game finished with Ashbury winners, 2-0. The following represented Ashbury : — Goal — Robinson. Backs — J. Rowley and Campbell. Halves — Ritchie (Capt.), Schlemm and Turner, Forwards — Calder, Symington, Kelly, Henderson and Bonnar. RUGBY FOOTBALL, 1928. Although we lost both games against L. C. C. we can look back with satisfaction to the 1928 season. We were very fortunate to secure the services of so keen and capable a coach as Mr. O ' Meara. This year ' s " Senior Practice " put in more and harder practices than any of their predecessors for, at least the last five years, and probably longer. The tackling was very good, a great improvement over that of last year. There were few men who clung to the belief that they should " clip " a ball-carrier, and they were singularly unsuccessful. Our chief weakness lay in an inability on the part of the backs to combine in end runs. Lower Canada beat us by their skillful passing, which was a pleasure to watch; Ottawa College also beat us, in the first game which we had with them, by their combination in end runs. Still our backs preferred to cut into the line rather than pass. Too much importance cannot be placed upon the need for passing the ball at the right moment, that is the tackle has been drawn. A fraction of a second too early or too late and the pass is useless. We hope that we shall see next season ' s backs practising passing at every opportunity. Our first match of the season was against L. C. C. in Montreal. The result of not being able to get any local games was that we dis- covered all our weaknesses against L. C. C. and we were beaten by a very good side 20-1. THE ASHBURIAN 35 We played Nepean High School on the following Monday. With a change at quarter back and in our method of line plunges we showed a little improvement and won 14-5. On Wednesday, October 25th, we played Ottawa College. The College backs were fast and combined well, and they beat us 22-5. The Ashbury team was, however, working far better than it had in Montreal and we were encouraged to look forward to something better. On Saturday. October 27th, we played Montreal High School at Ashbury. Everyone from regulars to spares worked hard and to- gether and we were successful by 38-8. Gausden for the first time during the season was given a chance to show his speed, he took ad- vantage of it and ran eighty- five yards for a touch. Monday, October 29, we played Bishop ' s College School on the M. A. A. A. ground in Montreal. It was a close game in which the Ashbury line rebuffed all efforts to break it. Guthrie and MacKenzie who were always good were particularly conspicuous on this occa- sion. Southam achieved fame in an unexpected quarter by dropping three field goals. Ashbury won 17-10. In a return game with Ottawa College, in which the College had a slightly weaker side than in the previous game we won 27-2. The climax of the season was on Saturday, November 3rd, when we hoped not without good reason to turn back the unbeaten C. C. team. Lower Canada found the Ashbury team a very dif- ferent proposition to that of a fortnight before. For the whole of the first quarter Ashbury was in the L. C. C. half. It is always easy to be wise after the event, but supposing we had kicked for points in this quarter instead of trying to plunge through the line we might have gained a useful and encouraging lead. As it was we had un- fortunately and erroneously been told that the L. C. C. line was weak and we tried to exploit this supposed weakness. The quarter was scoreless. In the second quarter a misunderstanding between the backs gave L. C. C. a touch. Southam went to the touch line to get some resin. L. C. C. kicked and Smellie thinking that Southam could not get back ran across to take the catch. Southam raced back to try and retrieve his mistake in being out of the play, did not call to his partner and they collided under the ball which Stewart recovered and carried over the line. Apart from this mistake the backs played a sound game, their catching of a slippery ball being noteworthy. They also ran out several kicks which looked like certain rouges. Fauquier, ever an opportunist, picked up a fumbled ball and scored a touch. L. C. C. kicked four points and Ashbury one. L. Bates as 36 THE ASHBURIAN THE ASHBURIAN 37 usual was in the thick of every play, whether tackling on the wings or getting under line plunges. Fauquier made some spectacular tackles. MacKenzie in the line broke through his heavier opponents •continually and tackled well. Gilmour at quarter, got down on every kick and never missed his tackle. He astonished opponents and spectators alike by the speed in which he got his plays out. Gilmour realized what so few School quartc rs do, the advantage of getting the ball into play before the opposing side is in position. Gilmour was ably supported by Perodeau who followed the ball and got down quickly. On some occasions Gilmour and Perodeau were the only men in position when the ball was snapped. It was unfortunate that L. Irvine was injured playing " Soccer " early in the season. He was a good linesman. Indeed the tackling of Irvine, Bates and Gilmour was the redeeming feature of our first game with Lower Canada. The following were given their colours : L. Bates, K. MacKen- zie, L. Irvine, J. Guthrie, A. Fauquier, B. Gilmour, G. Southam, J. Ewart, A. Henderson, T. Bates, R. Craig, C. Gausden, C. Stanfield, H. Campbell. FOOTBALL CHARACTERS L. Bates — Captain, Half. Third year on the team.

ASHBURY vs. MONTREAL HIGH SCHOOL PLAYED AT ASHBURY Saturday, Oct. 27th Ashbury lead at the end of the first quarter by 6 to 1, through a touch by Southam and a kick to the dead line by the same player. In the second quarter Ashbury unloosed a strong attack. Ewart plunged for a touch, Southam skirted the ends for another and also kicked two points. One touch was converted. At. the start of the third quarter Gausden caught a kick and ran eighty-five yards through the opponents for a touch. Southam con- verted and shortly afterwards kicked another point. At the beginning of the fourth quarter Montreal scored a safety touch giving them two points. Southam kicked on a third down and the Montreal back dropped the ball when Fauquier and Smellie tackled him together. Perodeau, who was following up well, picked up the ball and ran thirty-five yards for a touch. Montreal fought back and worked the ball to within ten yards of the Ashbury line. Rosenveig reversed, going through the line and crossed for a touch which was not converted. Just before the final whistle Gilmour skirted the ends for a touch from a fake kick play. 40 THE ASHBURIAN Ashbury 38— Montreal 8 Line-up — Ashbury : Halves, Craig, Gausden, Southam ; Flying V ing, T.

ASHBURY vs. B. C. S. Played on M.A.A.A. Grounds, Monday Oct. 29th Bishop ' s kicked off and Ashbury were in possession within the forty yards. On the third down Southam kicked, Hadfield took the ball on the run and sprinting along the touch line was within a yard of the Ashbury line before he was tackled. Ashbury held for two downs and then Bishops crossed the line between the centre and middle. The convert failed. Play was in the Bishops 25 yards. Southam attempted a drop at goal, the ball was just wide, but Gil- mour following up quickly tackled Hadfield for a point. Southam returned the B.C.S. kick and the Bishop ' s back fumbled. Fauquier picked up the loose ball and crossed the goal line. Southam missed the convert. An exchange of kicks followed and Southam was in a position to try a field goal. The drop was successful and Ashbury were four points up. Ashbury obtained another single when Henderson tackled a Bishop ' s back behind the goal line. Half time, 10-5. Shortly after half time Gausden was injured when he ran back a punt forty years and was pulled down by three opponents. Gaus- den was replaced by Craig. Bishop ' s tried an onside kick, the ball dropped and Bates dribbled it to within 10 yards of the Bishop ' s hne. After one line plunge Southam kicked . to the dead line. Bishop ' s then tried a number of reverse plays and finally succeeded in scoring when Taylor ran forty years for a touch, 11-10. Ashbury held Bishop ' s and they failed to make first down on three attempts. Southam kicked another field goal from thirty-five yards. An exchange of kicks followed and Bishop ' s again tried an onside kick. Craig relieved the pressure when he intercepted the kick and ran the ball back to Bishop ' s 30 yard line. Southam then put the issue be- yond all doubt when he dropped his third field goal just before the final whistle sounded. THE ASHBURIAN 41 Ashbury 17 — Bishops 10 Line-up — Ashbury : Flying Wing, T.

ASHBURY vs. LOWER CANADA COLLEGE Played at Ashbury, Saturday, November 3rd The game started in rain which got steadily worse as the morn- ing went on. Bates kicked off from the south end. After the first down Gatehouse skirted the end for fifteen yards. L.C.C. threat- ened until Bates succeeded in plunging through the line and tackling the ball carriers before they were able to get going. Ashbury tried repeated line plunges but were unable to gain against the heavy L.C.C. line. Southam punted to the L.C.C. ten yard line where Gatehouse was tackled by Gilmour. L.C.C. gained yards on an end run but lost their advantage when Smellie rrm back the kick twenty yards. Failing to gain on two downs Ashbury kicked and on the second play L.C.C. fumbled and Ashbury were in possession within four yards of the opponents ' line. The first down gained two yards but the advantage was lost when MacKenzie fumbled and Thomas of L.C.C. recovered the ball. L.C.C. kicked on the first down, the ball hit the goal posts and fell into Bates ' arms. Again Ashbury fumbled and Gatehouse relieved the pressure when he ran round the end for thirty-five yards. Thomas and Gatehouse each penetrated the Ash- bury line for eight yards and play was in the Ashbury half, L.C.C. continued to press and Johnson ran twenty yards. L.C.C. kicked and Carsley following up tackled Smellie behind the line. 1-0. 2nd Quarter — Guthrie went through for eight yards and Ash- bury threatened. L.C.C. kicked and Southam and Smellie collided under the ball which was recovered by Stewart who crossed the line for L.C.C ' s.touch. The convert failed, 6-0. L.C.C. continued to threaten and kicked over the Ashbury line but Smellie just managed to run it out and the whistle blew for half time. 3rd Quarter — Southam ran back the kick thirty-five yards. Play was even for some time until L.C.C. brought the ball into Ash- bury ' s forty by a succession of end runs. On a third down Southam ' s kick was blocked and L.C.C. were in possession at the twenty yard line, from where they kicked a touch in goal, 7-0. L C.C. continued to press and gained thirty yards on an end run and Southam was 42 THE ASHBURIAN rouged, 8-0. Ashbury came back with renewed effort and Guthrie went through for eight yards, Southam completing the distance. Southam marked a kick on the twenty yard hne and kicked to Gat- house. Gatehouse returned the kick almost to the dead line and Smellie was tackled in possession, 9-0. 4th Quarter — Southam kicked from his thirty yard line, the L.C.C. back fumbled and Fauquier who was following up well gathered the ball and ran forty yards for a touch. Southam ' s kick failed, 5-9. MacKenzie broke through the line on two successive occassions and made two spectacular tackles. L.C.C. pressed and on a third down kicked for another point, 5-10. On a fake kick Southam ran forty yards round the end and followed this by kicking a touch in goal, 6-10. L.C.C. took the ball back into the Ashbury half and kicked over the line. Smellie ran the ball out. Southam kicked an onside to Fauquier who caught the ball but was tackled after a short run and lost possession. The game ended with the ball in centre field.

INTERMEDIATE FOOTBALL The main difficulty this year was experienced in arranging matches and unfortunately, it was not found possible to arrange any in which the side as a team could take part. The two matches that were arranged were with teams limited by weight, so that the pro- per intermediate team, as such, was never seen in the field. The two games arranged were against Gladstone, which was lost, 4-6, and Sandy Hill, in which Ashbury were victorious, 13-5. The team consisted of the following: Elwood (Capt.) ; Mac- Brien, Robinson, F. Coristine, D. Fauquier, Evans, Symington, Thomas, Bell, Boyd, Magor, McGuckin, Heubach, Gait, F. Hart, Beauclerk, N. Gillies, R. Rowley and R. Coristine. THE ASHBURIAN 43 There was plenty of promising material in this team. Elwood and MacBrien could always be relied on to turn in a good game, and, in the line, McGuckin and Heubach tackled resolutely. Robinson and R. Rowley also showed promise, and several members of the side may develop into useful players in the course of the next year iVpart from one or two junior-intermediate matches nothing but Soccer has been played this term. As the result of much practice many have learned how to kick the ball, while the forwards have grasped the elementary principle of combination — that in this game they must act together and not rely on unsupported dashes, for a single player can seldom break through. Dominion defeated Mon- treal 2-0 in the House match. It was difficult to raise teams owing to the prevalence of a common camplaint — over-indulgence during the Thanksgiving holiday. As a result of this Montreal had to play two short, which made the game rather uneven. Two bequests have been gratefully received this term : a gift of $100 from George Drummond which will be most useful in starting- Reference and Historical sections ; and a gift of a large number of books from Dr. Prince, which are now on the open shelves in the Senior Library. We also thank Mr. Pattisson, R. Rowley, and J. A. Calder for a number of books which have been placed for the most part in the Junior Library. JUNIOR FOOTBALL. LIBRARY NOTES.

Cowans L 44 THE ASHBURIAN DEBATING SOCIETY At the time of going to press, only two meetings of the Society had been held. At the first, which was held on Sunday, October 21st, the motion before the House was " That a system of conscription is a better means of upholding the state than voluntary military service. " The motion was eventually carried by six votes. As this was the first meeting of the year, speakers were scarce and only one member spoke when the debate was thrown open to the House. The second meeting was held on Sunday, November 4th, when the motion was, " That all land and everything in it should belong to the State, and not to the individual or syndicate. " The vot- ing in this case resulted in a tie, the President giving his casting vote in favour of the motion. The four principal speakers were good, in spite of the fact that one of them was speaking for the first time. When the debate was thrown open only two members spoke. So far, the following members have spoken : Forbes, Bonnar, Pugsley, Ritchie, Macorquodale, McCarthy, Woods and Grant. Of these McCarthy was perhaps the best. CADET CORPS.

With eight of last years ' colours back, competition for places should be keen. On Wednesday, November 7th, we played a strong team com- posed of " Gunners " and other Junior City League players. Both teams showed remarkably good form for the first game, or even practice, of the season. The result was a win for our opponents by 3 to 2. Bates and Smellie scored for Ashbury. On Friday, the 9th, we played a return game with the same team and won, 4-2. Southam, Bates (2) and Smellie scored for Ashbury. We have been fortunate in obtaining the services of Frank Finnigan, the Senator ' s right wing, as coach. Under Finnigan ' s careful and competent coaching the team should develop into a very strong aggregation. Several new men have been tried. It is early yet to say how they will develop, but Elwood, though light, is a very good skater and shows more than ordinary hockey ability. 46 THE ASHBURIAN THE HISTORY OF COCK ROBIN Cock Robin was born at Elmtree, (the capital city of Elmforest) in a house of exceedingly small dimensions. He grew to be very popular especially with the ladies. However he had, like other great heroes, an enemy, Sparrow. When Cock Robin, who had entered politics, was elected by a majority of 105, Mr. Sparrow, who was the other candidate for Justice of the Peace, turned green with jealousy, and taking his son ' s bow and arrow, he killed poor Cock Robin. Mr. Fly was trying out a new telescope, so he saw the tragedy. He immediately telephoned the Fire Station, Police Station, and the Hospital. Soon the whole town was aware of the fact that Cock Robin was dead. The Police authorities set to work and soon accumulated evi- dence, which together with the evidence given by Mr. Fly, was enough to make Mr. Sparrow break down and confess. The inhabitants of Elmtree possessed only one bell, which they invited the bull to pull (because he was the only one that could). The rook was elected to be parson, because he possessed a small bell and an equally small book. The owl dug the grave with his trowel. Miss Dove, who was engaged to the deceased, was chief mourner. G.H.S. THE CHURCH, ASHBURY, ENGLAND. THE ASHBURIAN 47 NEAR ASHBURY, ENGLAND. A FABLE One morning a sign was posted up to the effect that Mr. Fox required a secretary ' ' who could write, read, and had a sly dis- position. " Two enterprising young secretary birds decided to have a try. Ihey were exactly the same except that one could not keep his mind on the business at hand. They both got up the following morning at the same time and started out. But soon they saw a lovely garden, which must have some insects in it. One kept on going, but the other, who could not keep his mind on the business that he was supposed to, went in. He found that there were insects there, and that there were potato bugs — the kind he liked. 48 THE ASHBURIAN After a while, he went on again, congratulating himself that his rival had not come into the garden and so seen the bugs. However, he found a shock awaiting him at Mr. Fox ' s. The sign had been taken down, and on going in, he found that the vacancy had been filled by his rival. All of which proves that " the early bird catches the worm. " This year, for the frl st time there are to be two Cross Country Races. Both are handicaps, folowing the usual procedure. The Junior course was quite short, just a circuit of the lake, with the finish up to the car track and along Acacia instead of up the rather steep slope of Mariposa. The number of entries was large but many were unable to compete owing to colds. This alYected Ottawa House to some extent, and particularly Montreal House. Results. 1. Symington. 2. Powell H. 3. Powell I. 4. Coristine H. 5. North. 6. Ferguson I. McGuckin who completed the course within four minutes of the winner, also scored a point. The Ker Cup is won by Symington, whose time of 17 minutes 32 seconds must be considered highly creditable in view of the extremely unpleasant conditions. The points won by the Houses were : — Marshall and Lawrence Irvine have generously presented a new cup to be awarded to the winner of the Senior Race. Mr. Ker is again giving a medal for the fastest scratch time. It has been decided to postpone the race until next year. G.H.S.

Ritchie giving news of Old Boys at R.M.C. He also voices a complaint, which he says is general, at the reception given to Old Boys when they visit the School. We quote from his letter : ' ' Why isn ' t Ashbury like every other school in Canada, and why don ' t she encourage the Old Boys to take a real interest in the school ? The Old Boys ' matches are all very well for Ottawa Old Boys, but those from other cities are for- gotten, li one visits the School, he is never asked if he would like dinner there — and the idea of having a bed there is unheard of. Yet in every other school we at R.M.C. have heard of, Old Boys are wel- come at any meal and can have a bed for a night, even if only one of the empty beds in the hospital, and there is a register for all Old Boys to sign when they visit the school. Can ' t something be done about it? " THE ASHBURIAN 51 The Editor would be very pleased to print any fresh suggestions from the Old Boys ' Organization and will open the pages of the Ashburian for any correspondence on the subject of Ritchie ' s letter. A register has been purchased and is kept in the School Office. We hope that all Old Boys visiting the School will sign this. As regards invitations to meals we are quite sure that Ritchie ' s experience must have been due to an unfortunate oversight and that other Old Boys will be able to bear witness that they have had repeated invitations. The Headmaster wishes us to assure all Old Boys that they are of course always most welcome at any meal at the School. He has again and again had the pleasure of entertaining Old Boys at his house and has frequently invited them to spend a week-end with him, and Old Boys from time to time have been put up at the School. Vv ' e think that the majority of Old Boys will be quite ready to testify that the implication that they do not receive a cordial welcome w hen they visit their old School is not warranted. start of Old Boys ' 100 Yards, 1928.
