Hewitt EDITORIAL It is the custom of some periodicals to publish selected letters of praise or blame under a title such as ' ' Brickbats and Bouquets. " Ve must admit that were we to try to do this we would have to search hard for the bouquets. However, we do not grumble ; we ask for criticisms and we receive it. The two main points on which we are criticized are, first that the " Ashburian " costs too much, and secondly, that too much space is devoted to sports accounts which are often months old when the magazine appears. As regards the first, we have reduced the Old Boys ' subscription in the hope of increasing our circulation and if we could increase it to a thousand we would be able to halve our pre- sent price. A copy of the last number of the " x ' Vshburian " was sent to each of the twenty boys who left last summer, but only two of those have troubled to pay their subscription. We cannot afford to give copies away and therefore we hope that all boys leavmg this year will at once fill up the form to be found on page 33. As re- gards the second criticism, the remedy lies in the hands of the boys. A school magazine should be written by the boys, and with the ex- ception of the sports accounts, it is our policy not to solicit contribu- tions from masters or outside sources. There is one other matter concerning the Old Boys on which we would like to comment. We have been asked to agitate for more frequent meetings of the Old Boys ' Association. The editors will give every facility they can for putting forward schemes suggested by the Old Boys, but the editors do not belong to the association and therefore they cannot possibly take the initiative in any matter deal- ing with the Old Boys ' Association. 2 THE ASHBURIAN Our Annual Confirmation Service was held in the Chapel on the evening of Wednesday, May 22nd. As usual the service was a most impressive one, and the Bishop gave a most helpful and prac- tical address to the candidates. The newly confirmed boys made their First Communion at the early service on Sunday, May 26th. The following boys were confirmed : — John Bassett, ■ Charles Gray, David Mathias, John Magor, Robert M. Powell, Leonard Schler m, Fred Sherwood, Forbes Wilson, George Wodehouse. The Headmaster paid a hurried visit to England during the Faster Holidays. He returned to Ashbury on May 6th. During his absence the school was in charge of Mr. H. F. Wright. THE ASHBURIAN 3 Mr. Price, who joined us last September, was forced to re- turn to England in December owing to ill health. We welcome to the staff, Mr. B. K. Howis. Mr. Ho wis has had considerable teaching experience and is a keen cricketer. He was for twelve years on the staff of Portsmouth Grammar School, England. He served in the Royal Air Force during the war. AVe congratulate Mr. Whitfield on the birth of a son. Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Grant have presented a handsome cup to the school which is to be awarded to the boxer who in the opinion of the judges at the annual tournament gives the best exhibition of ring craft. In the place of the annual dance, a concert was given in the gvmnasium on December 19th. We thank Mr. Birch heartily for arranging for us a most enjoyable evening. We take this opportunity of thanking those gentlemen who so kindly gave lectures to us on Saturday evenings. The names of the lecturers and of the subjects on which they spoke are : — November 19th — Dr. Ross, " Some Aspects of Modern Poetry. " December 8th — Prof. Prince. " Wonders of Deep Sea Life. " December 15th — Major McKeard, ' ' The 1928 cruise of the Government Supply Ship to the Arctic. " February 9th — Dr. Ami, " Life on Our Planet. " February 11th — Mr. F. D. Jacob, " Graphology. " February 23rd — Commander Beard, " A Talk on the Navy. " March 9th— Rev. G. E. Ross, " British Guiana. " March 16th — Col. Orde, " Mesopotamia and the Relief of Kut- el-Amara. " Col. Orde and Commander Beard are old Ashburians. On Monday, March 25th V. Beta visited the plant of the E. B. Eddy Co., Hull. We thank the Eddy Co. for giving us this oppor- tunity of seeing how paper is made. On the following day the Upper Vth. and V. B. were conducted over the works. On April 6th a large number of the Senior School went to a lecture at the Little Theatre on " The Old Map of Europe and the New, " by Sir Charles Grant Robertson, Principal of Birmingham l niversity, England. 4 THE ASHBURIAN On the suggestion of J. VV. Ritchie a register has been placed in the Headmaster ' s study which it is hoped all Old Boys will sign when they visit the School. Those who have already entered tlieir names in the book and the years during which they were at Ashbury are : — ■ J. Roberts Allen (1903-07), T. G. Ritchie (1918-23). L. G. Clarke (1917-24), R. J. Orde (1902-09). C. G. Wood (1911-15), L. B. Carling (1908-15). R. S. Morris (1911-15), H. H. Higgins (1923-25). T. G. Mayburry (1922-26), J, Y. Stanfield (1922-26). J. K. Graham (1922-28). H. C. Garland (1924-28), E. J. Carsley. C. W. Whitcher (1901-04, F. Cowans (1923-27). J. Lafleur (1925-28), I. C. Morgan. G. P. Thompson (1891-94). Lord Charles Cavendish (1917-18) has also revisited the school. Mr. Ker visited the school in May, on his way from Vancouver to England. His address for the summer is 8 Montgomerie Crescent, Glasgow, and he hopes that none ot his Ashbury friends visiting the British Isles will neglect to write to him to arrange a meeting if possible. The tennis committee this year is composed of : Scott, Stan- field, Forbes and Ewart. There were over thirty entries for the Badminton Tournament this year, Bonnar beat Henderson in the final round. The Proposed New Infirmary. It was announced in our last issue that one of the most pressing of the present needs of the School was an Infirmary where sick boys could be properly housed and, if need be, isolated. In most of the other larger Boarding Schools of Canada there is such an Infirmary, separate from the main buildings, and well equipped with all the many necessities and conveniences that sickness demands. In the majority of cases these Infirmaries have been given to the Schools either by private individuals or by donations to a special fund. We had hoped that of the Twenty-five Thousand Dollars re- quired for a suitable building at Ashbury enough would have been donated to enable us to commence operations early this Summer, THE ASHBURIAN 5 and that the new Infirmary would have been able to be opened for use this coming Fall. Although there has been a very generous res- ponse by a few of the parents of the supporters of Ashbury, and we take this opportunity of sincerely thanking them, there has not been the general support that we had anticipated. So far we have received about Ten Thousand Dollars only, and it looks as if we shall have to postpone the building of the Infirmary until next Spring and to look forward to having it in operation when School reopens in Sep- tember, 1930. An appeal is being sent out to all old boys, who are strongly urged to follow the example of the old boys of other important Canadian Schools and to do something that will really be a help to their old School. There are a number of wealthy persons who have, or have had, sons at Ashbury. May we venture to suggest to these that a sub- stantial donation to our Infirmary fund will be a very practical way of showing their interest in this School, and will at the same time greatly promote its increased efficiency? Donations, or promises of such, may be sent to the Headmaster and will be most gratefully received. Since the publication of the last number of the Ashhurian ser- mons in the School Chapel have been preached by : — The Rt. Reverend J. C. Roper,, Bishop of Ottawa. The Reverend J. H. Dixon, Rector of St. Bartholemew ' s Church. The Reverend C. Roach, Curate of All Saints ' Church. The Headmaster. The Reverend H. N. Myers. DETENTION IN R. Here in this little room. Full of scratching pen and weary breath. This afternoon, For somnolence, attempts at stealth, For unstripped bed and turned on Hght, I sit and write. For want of me the cricket does not stop, When all the work is done outside I ' ll go, And while our tutors stout their brows do mop, Not one will care whether I repose or no. Anon. 6 THE ASHBURIAN LIBRARY NOTES In looking around the library it is possible to notice a change during the past year. Another bookcase has been added, and sev- eral minor improvements have been made. The greatest change, however, has taken place among the books themselves. A large number of worn out and incomplete copies have been removed, and in most cases replaced by new ones. Many purchases have been made ,and quite a few books have been presented, so that it may be said that the physical condition of the library has never been better. Much, however, remains to be done. Each library is open five times a week and they have been used more and more, which is a good sign. But this has led to overcrowding, which is particularly acute on Sunday mornings. At this time, indeed, a group of Seniors are usually found in the Assembly room, to which they have migrated in search of peace and (comparative) solitude. More congenial surroundings are urgently needed. A library and a school-room have little in common ; certainly it is no place for a blackboard and chalk, for a Prefect ' s or Sixth Form room, or for the nightly consumption of biscuits and milk. It is therefore our earnest hope that as soon as the physical well-being of the school has been attended to our mental needs — no less, in importance — will receive equal consideration. The Committee have very generously presented several novels, especially Mathias, Gait i, and McGuckin. Our thanks are also due to Southam i, Ritchie, Dawes, and others for similar gifts. In ac- knowledging these we wish also to say that it is to be hoped that this excellent practice will continue. For in addition to making such books generally accessible, it leaves the library funds free to buy volumes for which there is a pressing need. Looking down the list of authors of books purchased we see the names of Swift, Conrad, Shaw, Longstreth, Cervantes, Kipling. Wells, Benson, Ian Hay, Curwood, Bramah, Conan Doyle. Space does not permit more than mere mention of three particular fav- orites : A. J. Evan ' s ' ' Escaping Club, " Pepy ' s " Diary, " and Thorn- dike ' s ' ' Dr. Syn. " The record shows that the adherents of Wode- house have declined in number, but the reign of Wallace is by no means at an end. However, the main thing is that these two no longer enjoy a virtual monopoly. A Card Index Catalogue has been made. This has entailed considerable time and trouble but it will be of permanent value if kept up to date. THE ASHBURIAN 7 These notes would not be complete without a word of thanks to the Committee and to the Prefect, Morgan, for his unostentatious efficiency. It will not be easy to fill his shoes. HOCKEY 1929. Except for a disappointing game with B. C. S. the past has been a very satisfactory season. We started the season with eight old colours, and considering that they were more experienced and bigger than last year, we were hopeful of equaling or beating the 1928 record when we did not lose a school game and only lost three local games — a record season for an Ashbury team. However this was not to be, this year. We won four and lost three school games. We had a good team, every member of which could play sound hockey. On two occasions, one against L. C. C. in Montreal and the second against U. T. S. in Toronto the team played very impressive hockey which was com- mented upon bv the hockev critics who were watchinQ . Perhaps if we had played fewer local games we should have had a still better record. There was a large number of these games played, which added to the games some members played outside the school tended to produce staleness. On some occasions there was a certain laziness and lack of enthusiasm in some of the team, which should not be. We were very fortunate in being able to make a trip to Toronto this year. This was rendered possible by help from the " Ashburian " and- the hospitality of U. C. C. who very kindly put us up and en- tertained us while in Toronto. Our thanks are due to the Head- master, Dr. Grant, the Staff and hockey team of U. C. C. Nor must we forget Mr. and Mrs. Woods who so kindly entertained us our first evening in Toronto, and in addition helped to defray our expenses. We left Ottawa by the 1 1 o ' clock train on Monday, March 4th, which we caught in spite of the Ottawa Bus Co. The C. P. R. pro- vided a private sleeping car both to Toronto and back. 8 THE ASHBURIAN Hockey, 1929 — Characters Colours — B. Gilmour, G. T. Southam, L. Bates, A. H. Fauquier P. B. Smellie, C. Stanfield, E.

Plaved at the Auditorium, Saturday, Januarv 5. Won 2-1. U. C. C. came to Ottawa again this year during the Christnias holidays. W e were able to put a whole team on the ice owing to Stan field ' s coming up from Truro, Nova Scotia, a week early and the Montreal boys ' coming up for the day. 10 THE ASHBURIAN It was decided to play three 15 minute periods. It took some time for Ashbury to settle down, so that in the first period U. C. C. had most of the play. After ten minutes of offensive hockey, U. C. C. scored when Dewar carried the puck down centre and pas sed to Eckhardt who beat Gilmour. The second period was more equal and Ashbury made deter- mined efforts to even the score. L. Bates broke through the U. C. C. defence twice but just missed the net on each occasion. In the last period Ashbury settled down and played much better hockey. Smellie scored after four minutes, and after seven minutes Stanfield broke from his blue line, took the puck down centre and shot from the opponents ' blue line. Baker who was unsighted, failed to save and Ashbury were one goal up, a lead they retained doggedly until the end. Jack Kilrea refereed the game. Gilmour in the nets played a good game, and L. Bates, Smellie and Stanfield all worked hard and effectively. Line-ups — Ashbury : Goal, Gilmour ; defence. L. Bates, Stan- field ; centre, Southam ; wings, Smellie, Fauquier ; subs, Beardmore, Gausden, Craig and T. Bates. U. C. C. : Goal, Baker ; defence. Dewar, Blair ; centre. May, wings, Allan, Magladery ; subs, Eckhardt, Gundy and Musgrave. ASHBURY vs. MONTREAL HIGH SCHOOL. Played at the Forum, Saturday, Februarv 9th. Won 6-0. Two twenty minute periods were played. Montreal were with- out one of their best players, Farmer, who plays on the wing and is a high scorer. Ashbury took a little time getting into their stride but once they hit it there was no stopping them. The forwards checked well and Gilmour was not called upon to do very much in goal. At the end of the first period Ashbury were four goals up. In the second period Ashbury eased a little and only two more goals were added. Five of the goals were scored by L. Bates and Southam accounted for the other one. THE ASHBURIAN 11 Line-ups : — Ashbury — Goal, Gilmour ; defence, Stanfield, L. Bates; centre, Southam; wings, Smellie, Fauquier; subs, Gausden, Craig, Beard- more and T. Bates. M. H. S. — Goal, McCormick; defence, Armitage, Hilliard ; centre. Lamb ; wings, Carmichael, Morgan ; subs. Woo, Blachf ord and Kane. Referees : Savage and Rexford. . ASHBURY vs. BISHOP ' S COLLEGE SCHOOL. Plaved at the Forum, Monday, February 11th. Lost 0-1. The game was played in two twenty minute periods. Ashbury after the easy win on Saturday were very confident of the result of this game and it was this over-confidence, in part, which lost the match. Ashbury started playing fast hockey in a determined hunt for goals but they found the Bishop ' s defence a stumbling block, and after the first twelve minutes they could no longer maintain the attack. Bishop ' s had evidently been instructed to play a defensive game and wait for a break. They got their break after fifteen minutes play, the puck was shot from outside the defence and hit Bates. Bates seemed to be taken by surprise and instead of clearing or breaking away allowed a Bishop ' s man to recover the puck. A face-off followed immediately in front of goal from which Coristine netted the puck. For the rest of the game Bishop ' s played strong defensive hockev. As time went on Ashburv became over anxious and ex- pended their energy, of which they did not have as much as usual, on fruitless solo rushes which lacked all hockey science. Bates and Craig both had excellent opportunities to pass to uncovered wings, instead they tried to split the defence only to lose the puck. In the last two minutes of the game Ashbury who were improving a little nearly scored when Smellie rushed in to secure a rebound. Reed dived and fell on the puck just preventing a score. It was a disappointing exhibition of hockey in which no-one played anywhere near his usual form. Line-ups : — Ashbury — Goal, Gilmour ; defence, Stanfield, L. Bates ; centre, Southam ; wings, Smellie and Fauquier ; subs, Gausden, Beardmore, Craig and T. Bates. B. C. S. — Goal, Reed; defence, Duggan and Taylor; centre, Kenny ; wings, Riddell and Coristine ; subs, Drurv, Glass and Davis, 12 THE ASHBURIAN ASHBURY vs. L. C. C. Played at the Forum, Saturday, February 16th. Won 2-0. This game, which was played in two twenty-minute periods, was a very good exhibition of hockey. Ashbury were determined not to have a repetition of Monday ' s game vs. B. C. S., and they made no mistakes in their combination or back-checking. L. C. C. who finished the season at the top of the Montreal league, were worthy opponents. Mickles and Gate- house always being dangerous when in possession of the puck. Fauquier, Southam, L. Bates and Smellie were outstanding for Ashbury, playing hard and scientific hockey. L. Bates opened the scoring midway through the first period. Bates stopped a Lower Canada attack at his own defence, eluded the opposition and scored with a hard shot that completely baffled Somerville. Lower Canada attacked time after time but on the few occasions when they got past the Ashbury forwards Bates and Stanfield forced them to shoot from the wings and Gilmour made no mistakes. Towards the close of the game the puck was put past Gilmour but the goal was declared offside. Two minutes before the end, Fauquier put Ashbury two goals up when he scored from a scramble in front of the goal. The referee was Frank Carlin. Line-ups : — Ashbury College — Goal, Gilmour ; defence, Stanfield and L. Bates ; center, Southam ; wings, Smellie and Fauquier ; subs, Craig, Beardmore and T. Bates. Lower Canada College — Goal, Somerville ; defence. Johnson and Gatehouse; wings, Carsley and Thomas; subs., Ebbit, Fraser and Burpee. ASHBURY vs. L. C. C. Played at the Auditorium, Saturday, March 2nd. Lost 1-2. Three fifteen minute periods were played. In the return game with L. C. C. -Ashbury were beaten 2-1. His Excellency, Lord Willingdon, faced the puck and stayed to watch a very closely fought game in which both teams showed considerable hockey ability. THE ASHBURIAN 13 L. C. C. opened with a strong offensive and scored twice in the first seven minutes. Thomas, the right wing, shot from inside the defence ; the defence were slow clearing and Thomas followed up to put the rebound between Gilmour ' s legs as he fell. Shortly after- wards Gatehouse broke throug h the Ashbury team and skated right on top of Gilmour to score easily. Gausden took the puck down the wing and gave a well judged pass to Beardmore who made no mis- take with his shot. From then on two well matched teams fought hard with no further scoring. Somerville made many fine saves and showed himself to be a very finished goal-keeper. In the third period he made saves off Southam and Smellie in rapid succession which looked to be certain goals. Craig who was sent on in L. Bates ' place soon after the start filled his position well. Southam worked his poke-check at centre with skill and effectiveness, and every one did his share. Line-ups : — Ashbury — Goal, Gilmour; defence, T. Bates and Stanfield; centre, Southam; wings, Smellie and Fauquier; subs., Craig, Gaus- den and Beardmore. L. C. C. — Goal, Somerville ; defence, Gatehouse and John- son ; centre, Carsley ; wings, Thomas and Mickles ; subs., Fraser, Ebbitt and Burpee. ASHBURY vs. UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO SCHOOLS. Played at the Varsity Arena, Tuesday, March 5th. Won 5-3. This is the first time the Ashbury hockey team has been seen in Toronto and they gave a very impressive exhibition both in at- tack and defence. Two Twenty Minute Periods Were Played. U. T. S., the champions of the O. H. A. Junior Preparatory School group, have a very strong team and immediately started a fast offensive. Ferguson, the U. T. S. centre, initiated a ' number of dangerous attacks, two of which resulted in goals from McLean and Hendry respectively. Ashbury settled down quickly and checked Ferguson and WilHamson, the most dangerous U. T. S. players closely. Towards the end of the first period Craig sent in a hard well directed shot from outside the defence which ended in the corner of the net. 14 THE ASHBURIAN The second period opened with Ashbury very much on the aggressive. The defence were swinging out wide passes to the wings who gathered them well and showed skillful combination which baffled U. T. S. After two minutes Bates passed to his wing, fol- lowed up and was in position for the return pass from which he beat the goal-keeper. In the middle of the period Smellie skirted the defence and placed a fast drive in the corner of the net putting Ashbury in the lead. In the closing minute Bates out-maneuvered the entire opposition and put Ashbury two goals up. The third period opened with U. T. S. trying hard to lessen the Ashbury lead but Ashbury were still on the offensive, that being the best method of defence against a fast skating team such as U. T. S. Mid-way through the period after good combination Bates secured his third goal. In the closing minutes of the game U. T. S. sent four and five men up but owing to exceptional goal keeping by Gilmour they were only able to score one goal. It would be invidious to mention any one Ashbury player when all the team worked their hardest and played good hockey through- out a very hard and keenly fought game. Line-ups : — U. T. S. — Goal, Hannam and Dickinson ; defence, Williamson and Donovan; wings, McLean and Hendry; centre, Ferguson; subs., Copp, Boddington, Cunningham, McPherson, Keith and Kerr. Ashbury College — Goal. Gilmour; defence, L. Bates and Stan- field ; centre, Beardmore ; wings, Fauquier and Smellie ; subs., Craig, Gausden, T. Bates and Coristine. Referee — Jimmy Loftus. ASHBURY vs. UPPER CANADA COLLEGE. Played at the Arena Gardens. Wednesdav, March 6th. Lost 0-3. Ashbury showed the effects of the previous day ' s struggle, and although everyone gave of his best there was not the same finish to the play that there would have been had the team been fresh. Gilmour particularly was inclined to be listless, the only occasion during a long season, and let in two goals he would usually have had no difficulty in stopping. THE ASHBURIAN 15 Bates as usual, skated through the opposition time and time again but he could not beat Baker. The first U. C. C. goal cam.e from Dewar, who went through alone and beat Gilmour. It was Dewar again who added the second goal on a lone rush. The second period was very even, starting quite fast and slow- ing down appreciably. Ashbury were through several times but the passing lacked the precision of the previous day and opportunities t o score were lost. Towards the end of the period Bates had to retire with an injury to his knee. His place was filled by T. Bates and Craig alternately. With Bates off everyone made greater ef- forts and both Fauquier and Smellie were unlucky not to score but Baker was playing a splendid game in the U. C. C. nets and saved his team continually. In the last period U. C. C. back checked stubbornly and Ash- bury had to resort to long shots. In the closing stages of the game May scored the third U. C. C. goal on a solo effort. Line-up : — Ashbury — Goal, Gilmour; defence, Stanfield and L. Bates; centre, Beardmore ; wings, Smellie and Fauquier ; subs., Gausden, Craig, T. Bates and Coristine. U. C. C. — Goal, Baker; defence, Blair and Dewar r centre, May; wings, Allan and Magladery ; subs., Eckhardt, Musgrave and Gundy. HOUSE MATCHES In the first round of the senior house matches Ottawa played Dominion. On paper Dominion had a very strong team, no less than five colours. Ottawa, however, gave them a very good game, and it was not until the last period when Ottawa ' s lack of spares made itself felt that Dominion showed any very marked superiority. In the first period Gilmour in goal was almost unbeatable and Smellie worked all over the ice breaking up numerous plays, with an effective poke-check, before they became dangerous. Fauquier scored the only goal in this period. In the second period Ottawa continued doggedly to hold Dom- inion and again only one goal was scored, this time by Southam. In the third period while Smellie was in the penalty box for body-checking Southam in mid-ice L. Bates and Southam both 16 THE ASHBURIAN scored for Dominion. In the closing minutes of the game Stanfield added to the score bringing it up to five. Line-up : — Ottawa — Gilmour, goal ; Guthrie, Rowley, defence ; Smellie, centre ; MacCarthy, Campbell, wings ; Ewart, spare. Dominion — MacBrien, goal ; Stanfield, Bates I, defence ; Southam, centre ; Fauquier, Bates II, wings ; Thomas, Elwood, Kelly, spares. In the second round Dominion beat Montreal 3-2. Again Dom- inion had the stronger side on paper but they had to work hard for their victory. Two twenty minute periods were played. In the first period Montreal seemed afraid to leave their own blue line so that Dominion had most of the play. T. Bates opened the scoring when he netted a rebound. Shortly afterwards L. Bates put Dominion further ahead. Towards the close of the period Pero- deau, who was seizing his opportunities of shooting, beat MacBrien with a low shot from the wing. In the second period Montreal attacked more and had a large share of the game. They well deserved the equalizing goal which Craig scored. The goal itself was a lucky one as MacBrien swept it in as he was getting up after falling to save. Both teams worked hard for the deciding goal but neither could score and the game went into overtime. After four minutes of overtime Southam scored with a good shot from the wing while Beardmore was serving a penalty. Line-up : — Montreal — Robinson, goal ; Ritchie, Craig, defence ; Beardmore, Gausden, wings, Coristine ; centre, Perodeau. Dominion — MacBrien, goal; Bates I, Stanfield; defence, Fau- quier, Bates II; wings, Southam, centre; Elwood, Thomas, Kelly, spares. BOLSHEVIK HOCKEY There were several attempts at Hockey this year. Some of the more advanced students could stand up, a nd the number of pucks found in Lindenlea is evidence of the shooting powers of some of the players. THE ASHBURIAN 17 The shriek of the whistle is heard from afar, The peace of an afternoon to mar, While from the big rink ' s snowy border May be viewed a scene of wild disorder. A timorous cozvering referee Is the centre figure of a group of three ; The other two zvith stocks on high, Revile each other to the sky. The rival teams zvith taunts and oaths Azvait once more the signs to close — The dropping of a round black puck. The players start to run amuck. The whole idea of the game is gone, But the thirst for blood still lingers on. Until at length, the others prone, The goalers face it out alone. An easy shot — just one, no more — Along the ice, and the game is o ' er. A goaler retires, covered zvith shame. Need I mention that goaler ' s name? — Somniosus. SECOND TEAM, The School played S. Alban ' s at Brockville on February 13th and were beaten 3-4 after a good game. The first period was fairly evenly contested and it was not until near the end that Loomis scored for S. Alban ' s. The lead was short lived as Coris- tine went through almost at once and scored for the School. In the next period each side scored once, Elwood and Coristine showing good combination which resulted in the former ' s equal- izing the score. The Ashbury back checking was weak in the third period and Loomis was twice allowed to penetrate the de- fence single handed and put S. Alban ' s two goals ahead. Ash- bury tried hard to reduce the deficit and in the last few minutes of the game Gilmour scored our final game. The School side all played sound hockey though there was no outstanding performer, and they undoubtedly lost the game during the early part of the third period when the defence temporarily went to pieces. Ashbury was represented by the following: — Garvock, Gilmour, Guthrie, Perodeau, Coristine 1, Elwood. 18 THE ASHBURIAN The return game was pla,yed in Ottawa at the Auditorium on March 2nd. This proved quite an exciting encounter and even- tually resulted in a drawn game though shortly after the third period Ashbury was leading 4-1. Again the defence temporarily went to sleep and S. Albans put on three goals without response. The following represented A.shbury : — Forbes, Gilmour, Guthrie, Perodeau, Coristrne 1, Elwood, with MacBrien 1 as spare. INTERMEDIATE TEAM. The School pla}ied S. Alban ' s at Brockville on February 13th, immediately after the Second Team game and was success- ful, v3-l. Ashbury were certainly the more finished side and MacBrien 1, who scored all three goals, turned in a good game. Fauquier 11, and Kelly also played well and materially helped their side to win. The following represented Ashbury : — ■ Forbes, MacBrien 1, Thomas, Fauquier 11, Coriistine 11, Kelly, with Powell 1, McGuckin, Brodie 11 as spares. The return game was played in Ottawa in March and result- ed in a win for Ashbury bv 2-1 after a level game. The following represented Ashbury : — Robinson, Ritchie, Thomas, Symington, Bonnar, Kelly, with Henderson, McCarthy 1, Powell 1, Brodie 1 as spares. Two games were played with the Minto Club Juniors, in Avhich the teams were limited by weight, Ashbury losing one and drawing the other. JUNIOR AND JUNIOR INTERMEDIATE HOCKEY. The following matches were played : — JUNIORS vs. SELWYN HOUSE. Played at Montreal, Friday, February 15th. Each member of the team played really well, but collectively, they were beaten by the unaccustomed size of the rink. We were undoubtedly THE ASHBURIAN 19 handicapped by only having one spare, Graham II faihng to materiahze at the last moment. Selwyn worked hard to obtain their victory of three goals to nil. Team: — Kirkpatrick (Capt.), Powell II, Ferguson I, Yuile, Grier II, Borbridge, MacBrien II, JUNIOR INTERMEDIATES vs. SELWYN HOUSE. Played at Montreal. Won, 4-1, March 1st. A fast and inter- esting game. There was no stopping Symington I, and Bassett I ; Fauquier II thoroughly deserved his clever goal. Beauclerk in goal, was very " cool, calm and collected. " Team A — Fauquitecr ,11 (Capt), Sy ' mingiton, Cald , Bassett, Kirkpatrick, MacCarthy II, Beauclerk. ACROSTIC Uprights. At the first the second is taught.

Minor injuries and illness interfered considerably with the boxing last term and a number of boys were unable to continue the course to the end. Consequently the standard of the boxing at the tournament, which was held on Saturday, March 23rd, was not as high as it has been in recent years. A large number of visitors was present, and after the bouts refre shments were served in the dining- room. Mr. G. Glossop kindly acted as referee and Messrs. J. L. Mclntyre and W. M. Anderson as judges. Symington was awarded the new Grant Cup for the best display of ring-craft. Elwood also boxed well. The results were : — Intermediate Lightweight (Semi-finals) — J. Ross beat F. Heubach, R. Rowley beat W. Bell. Junior Lightweight (Final) — M. MacBrien beat J. MacLaren. Junior Heavyweight (Final) — J. Symington beat J. Gait. Intermediate Lightweight (Final) — J. Ross beat R. Rowley. Intermediate Middleweight (Final) — E. Elwood beat L. Thomas. Intermediate Heavyweight (Final) — J. Rowley beat M. Grant. Senior Lightweight (Final) — H. Campbell beat B. Gilmour. Senior Heavyweight (Final) — J. Ewart beat A. Fauquier. THE ASHBURIAN 21 SKI-ING. The jumping and turning competition was held on Monday, February 25th, at Fairy Lake. Mr. Lockeberg kindly judged. The weather had been very unsettled for some time so that the first suitable day had to be taken advantage of. As a result the notice was short and a number of intending competitors were unavoidably absent. Owing to a thaw setting in, the cross country race was not held this year. Ewart who was undoubtedly the best skier amongst the com- petitors jumped a good twelve feet further than the next man but he fell on both his jumps so that Davidson who jumped well and consistently, was placed first. In the turning Davidson did well and gained enough points to keep first place. Johnston was placed second Bassett third and Ewart fourth. MacCarthy I, Bell, Woods, Ritchie, Grant, D. Fauquier, M. MacBrien and Roberts- Allan gained points for their respective houses. Mackenzie and Ewart took part in a number of competitions this season and we congratulate them both on their good perfor- mances. In the Ottawa Ski Club junior jumping championship Mackenzie was placed first and Ewart second. In the Ontario Championship Mackenzie was tenth and Ewart twentieth out of thirty-three competitors. Mackenzie and Ewart went down to Montreal to take part in the Dominion Championship in which out of sixty-six entries Mackenzie finished twentieth and Ewart thirty- fifth, both of them doing the very creditable jump of one hundred and nine feet. J. R. P. CRICKET, 1929 Old Colours: G. T. Southam, A. H. Fauquier, P. B. SmelHe, C. Gausden, W. Bonnar, E. Beardmore. G. T. Southam was elected captain and A. H. Fauquier vice- captain. On the first Saturday of term a school XI played a team of masters assisted by four members of the school. The school won easily by six wickets. The form shown by the school both in the field and batting promises well for the season. In the first O.V.C.C. fixture Ashbury defeated Cathedral C. C by 6 runs. The feature of the game was a faultless innings of 72 by Southam and the bowHng of Gillies (4 wickets for 22 runs) and Smellie (3 wickets for 4 runs). 22 THE ASHBURIAN In the second O.V.C.C. game Ashbury were again succesful, this time at the expense of Ottawa C. C. After an hour and ten minutes of slow cricket Fauquier and SmelHe put on 62 runs in twenty minutes. Fauquier made 58 not out and Smellie 23 not out. Both batsmen batted with judgment, hitting loose balls hard and treating the good ones with care. Their running betwen the wickets was particularly good. ASHBURY vs. CATHEDRAL C.

The Senior Cross Country Race, unavoidably postponed from last fall, owing to the untimely arrival of winter, was held on Wed- nesday, May 1st.

The cup was thus won by Perodeau, and the medal given for the fastest time by Scott. There were 26 entries, and of these 24 started. The absentees were Cann (holder of the cup) who, most unfortunately, was unable to compete owing to a recent operation ; and Thomas, a promising runner, who was sick. All of the runners are to be congratulated on turning out, with little preparation, especially as not a few did so apparently more in hope than in expectation of scoring a point in the House Competition. Perodeau has a strong free style and should improve still further. Gray made a most promising first appearance, and Robertson kept up well. With growing strength he should be able to maintain his position. Coristine I was fourth both in finishing order and in time taken, showing what he can do when he exerts himself. Wilson III did well, for a short distance runner; but Elwood dropped four places from last year. Bates II and Scott, who finished together, returned the fastest times, 24 ' 34 " and 25 ' 16 " respectively. Scott, a thoroughly keen and assiduous runner, started last of those who completed the course. He deserves great credit for his well-earned success. CHESS The Tournament was held as usual in the Lent term, and at- tracted a slightly larger number of entries than last year. Thanks to the energy of Turner (last year ' s winner) the various rounds were played off by the time appointed, in spite of pink-eye and so forth, the decision being on the best of three games. In the final Angus was beaten by Macorquodale, to whom a medal has been awarded from the Senior Library funds. HOUSE POINTS Ottawa. Montreal. Dominion.

In the unavoidable absence of Major-General MacNaughton, the inspecting officer was Lt.-Col. Boak, accompanied by Capt. Isbister, District Cadet Officer. The Corps went through the usual ceremonial movements with commendable steadiness and showed that it had made some progress since the previous year. The Platoon competition followed and the decision went to No. 2 Platoon under Platoon Leader H. A. Fauquier. The Bassett Cup for the smartest Bantam Platoon was won by that commanded by W. Hadley, while the prize for the most efficient Bantam on parade was awarded to J. Wood. The Inspecting Officer then addressed the parade compliment- ing it on its smartness and efficiency, and concluded by asking the Headmaster for a Half. Dr. Woollcombe replied briefly, thanking Col. Boak and promised that the holiday would be awarded in due season. In the afternoon the usual Gymnastic Display was given. ■ The presentation of prizes took place in the Gymnasium after the display, when the Headmaster presided. The prizes awarded were : — Shooting — O ' Connor Cup — M. Grant. Scott Cup — H. Fensom. Cox Cup — R. Booth. Humphrey Cup — E. Grier. Winner of 2nd Class Medals, D.C.R.A. Competi- tion — A. Angus, D.

The pride of the O. E. R. Bus Line, Miss Ottawa, met Mr. B. and party at the main entrance at 9.15 a.m. From here the party was to go direct to Seguin ' s wharf. Previously Dr. Ami had very kindly measured the wi dth of the river at that point, but Mr. Jacob, from a study of Dr. Ami ' s hand- writing, had shown that this measuremefft was bound to be .001 m.m. too long. The day dawned bright and fair and the school was agog at the prospect of having each member of V. A. made a F.R.S, Mr. B. arrived at the College amid thunderous applause. Several seconds before the zero hour a cloud of dust was seen on the horizon and as it approached it was seen to contain Miss Ottawa, Mr. B. held out his hand and the bus came snorting to a standstill. The boys filed in in the usual well-mannered Ashbuiy manner. " We are off " said one of the younger members, but all of a sudden nothing happened — Miss Ottawa had failed to function. For several seconds pandemonium rained but Mr. B. quelled it with a glance and producing an aluminum bicycle pump, pumping up the dual balloon tires was but the work of a moment. The mechanic let out the clutch and after a few preliminary snorts, Miss Ottawa rolled smoothly forward. At Seguin ' s wharf a huge crowd was discerned which was quite unexpected as our plans had been kept from the j apers. One of the smaller boys was thrown into the river with the big drum which was to be carried to the other side. Then to my ears came at first softly and then increasing in volume the toll of a bell. Someone shouted " early morning drill, " and alas the picture faded away. After all, it was only a dream, but perhaps some day it will come true. J. R. THE ASHBURIAN THE SONG OF JIMMIEHAHA. Should you ask mc zvhence tJiis story, Whence this story sad and painf ul, I zvill answer, I zvill tell you, Search the records, search the Roll-boo Search the lists of impositions. You may find the facts related, You may see the proofs and data. But perhaps you may not. You shall hear hozv Jimmiehaha, Came to live and learn at Ashbury, Came to gather lots of Knowledge In the class-rooms of this college. From the West beyond Alberta Came this nezv and eager scholar; Not a tozvn before had he seen, Not a jigger, not a sidezvalk. Not a little thing did he knozv Of the customs here at Rockliffe. A zvild and red-skinned savage was he. Dressed in little bits of moose skin. As it zvere a little naked. THE ASHBURIAN Soon he grew to love the masters, Did his homezvork, did his quarters, Did his Physics, did his Latin, Even did his Ancient History, Clothed himself just as the rules say, Knew the time of every roll-call. But one habit of the Redskins, Found he very hard to give up. Found he could not altogether Leave alone his pipe and tom-tom. In the nights after lights out, Through the school were heard strange noises With frequent repetitions And with wild reverberations. While our noses were offended With a smell like burning rubber. Even worse than any Sixth Form In the lab. could manufacture. Of the cause of this disturbance Not one master had a glimmer. Perhaps young Pretzel was the culprit, (Young and lissom was he sometime) . Perhaps it was the rats that scamper Even now upon the ash heap. But at last there came from England, Came across the raging waters A detective zvise and owl-eyed. Came to teach the very young boys. THE ASHBURIAN Soon the culprit he discovered, Speedy were his skilled deductions From the odours, from the noises. To the station, to the choo-choo, Was the criminal escorted, And lest boys both white and goodly. Should want to play a noisy tom-tom, Should want to smoke a smelly peace-pipe. Never back to this our college, Came again young Jimmiehaha. THE EVOLUTION OF EVANGELINE One quiet afternoon while a certain illustrious college was peacefully carrying on its half holiday routine of games and other mental relaxation, a deafening, ear-splitting series of crashes caused a general cessation of all movement in or about the astounded insti- tution. Even the detention class stopped and stood with rifles at their shoulders, waiting for the worst. Strong students paled, while the weaker simply fainted. Thoughts of invasion crossed peoples minds, conjured up by that staccato succession of bangs and crashes which sounded like two modern pom-pom guns firing at full speed. 30 THE ASHBURIAN In the midst of the uproar a small black thing, giving off clouds of smoke and steam, entered a gate and slowly disappeared behind the school. Those in the building promptly made for the l asement and stood shivering with abject fear and apprehension. Suddenly, with a terrific coughing bang, the noise stopped. For about five seconds there was such absolute silence that the ticking of the Assembly room clock was clearly audible throughout ttie building. Then pandemonium broke loose. ' ' What was it? " " Where did it come from? " Was it an aeroplane or a tank or both ? " Slowly, very slowly, the old school recovered, until at length a few of the bolder spirits, notably, the prefects, summoned up enough courage to hunt for some trace of the terror. Nothing, however, was found, save the back yard where a thing which looked like a kicked biscuit box painted black on four wheels had suddenly ap- peared. Imagine the consternation of the wondering students when the thing began to shake and heave and two tin doors opened and a pair of grimy creatures who were at last recognized as two of their schoolmates stood before them ! If Major H. Segrave could have seen the ancient and rusty chassis that finally emerged from beneath the black biscuit box after some days of extraordinary effort on the part of the owners, it is doubtful whether he would have foreseen a powerful rival. In fact it is no exaggeration to say that he would in all probability have preferred his own ' ' Golden Arrow " to this nucleus of a road-burner. Time worketh wonders, however, and if, a fortnight later, a resident of the nearby settlement were asked why he or she kept a policeman and six bull-dogs on guard before his or her house night and day, the answer would probably be that a great and grotesque shape was in the habit of tearing along the road as silently as a freight train The next scene is a well known stretch of sand, very smooth and wide, and an enormous concourse of people. At one end is the " Golden Arrow, " and beside it the challenger, a smaller vehicle stream-lined and painted in the modernist style. The body is yellow with purple stripes and green spots, while on each side is the name " Evangeline " in red letters (it being a red- letter day for the owners). At the stern is " Evangeline — Montreal " in light pink. The two drivers take their places (there is no need to describe the drivers — it would spoil the story) and the racer moves THE ASHBURIAN 31 slowly forward, drawn by a team of horses. Suddenly the engine starts, and the car, tearing through the team and killing two horses and a pekingese dog, is on its way. " They ' re off! " shouts someone. " Quite, " says his neighbour, T knew them at school. " Soon the news arrives : " Two hundred and forty ! " says an official. Segrave sets out in a gallant attempt to regain the record, but half way up the course his car skids on a congealed pool of lava, left by " Evangeline " as she melted the track on her record run, and is badly wrecked. Segrave escapes by a miracle. At a circus side-show a few days later an exhibitor is doing a roaring business. " Step right in and see " EvangeHne, " the only car of its kind in the world, holder of the world ' s speed record — only fifteen cents — also the original drivers ! " But I can go no further, as my nightmare stopped at this point, and I had to get up for breakfast. SOME HOWLERS " Acrimony (sometimes called holy) is another name for mar- riage. " " The cold at the North Pole is so great that the towns there are not inhabited. " We cannot compete with the above, which come from other schools, but when the Sixth says that a sonnet may be divided into " a sextet and a pentigon " we may well look for bad breaks lower down. A few recent specimens are appended. " The Asturias are a race of people chiefly engaged in nothing. " " The archives is a place where you see the bones of animals in the real shape. " " In 1793 Danton executed Robespierre. Later Robespierre executed Danton. " " When a man is shot through the heart death is spontaneous. " " Laudable means loud enough to be heard. " " Italy used to be where Rome stood, and if one goes to Rome you can still see the ruins. " " Samuil could not possibly have lost the Ark because I know very well that Noah brought it safely to land.

THE ASHBURIAN 33 OLD BOYS ' NOTES We regret to record the death of Captain Randolph Wilbur White who was at Ashbury from 1906-1912. Captain White went overseas as a machine gun officer with the 23rd Battalion and was transferred to the machine gun corps, and later to the Royal Flying Corps. He was taken prisoner in 1916 and remained in Germany until the Armistice. The following engagements of Old Boys are announced : — - Jefferson Chapleau (1919-22), to Miss Margaret Morley. Ormiston J. Dawes (1920-25), to Miss Jean W. Cassils. E. F. Newcombe has been made a K. C. Henry Gill (1915-23), has been appointed manager of the Ottawa office of Pitfield Scott Co. 19 To Mr. W. H.

EDITORIAL There were indeed giants on the earth in those days, if we beHeve the boyhood recollections of our seniors. It seems to be the g-eneral opinion of all Old Boys of every school that ' ' the Old School " is not what it used to be. We hear §uch tales of sanguin- ary battles, of impenetrable lines, of pucks breaking the net, and of cricket balls breaking the school windows, that the Summer vanishings must have a marvellous reducing effect on our desks, or the " small boys " who now compose our teams would be lost in them. It is usually admitted that years lend magnifying spec- tacles to restrospective eyes. Our success this year at football will not be accepted as a rigid proof of this, as the Old Boys of other schools are quite convinced of the deterioration of our opponents, but we thmk that the comparrson, given elsewhere in this number, of recent performances at Sports Day will allow no other con- clusion than that we are not smaller and feebler than we used to be. Even the Ashburian is larger. We were all very sorry to learn that our beloved President, Col. James W. Woods, had been unwell during the past summer, but we are much relieved and pleased to learn that he is now very much improved in health. We trust that Col. Woods will be spared to be our President for many more years to come. His very practical help and advice, and his deep interest in all that concerns the School have contributed not a little to the growth of the School and to the success it has attained. SCHOOL NOTES 2 THE ASHBURIAN The New Infirmary. While a certain number of parents and friends had very kindly promised generous donations, it was found impossible to proceed with the New Infirmary Building during the summer and it looks as if we should have to postpone this addition to the school for a few years more. Thanks, however, to the generosity of Mr. James Wilson of Montreal, another Ward containing five beds and with bath-room attached, has been added to our infirmary quarters. We are now very much better equipped as regards accommodation for the sick, and the inconvenience caused in the past by turning an ordinary bedroom into a temporary infirmary will now be avoided. Our thanks are due also to Mrs. J. A. Calder, who has very kindly sup- plied our Sick Wards with bedside tables, reading lamps, and hot- water plates. Successes at McGill Matriculation. Last June, four hundred and fifty candidates from the whole of Canada wrote on the ordinary Pass Matriculation for McGill. Of these, one hundred and four, that is just over 23% obtained their full Matriculation. Ashbury sent in eleven candidates and eight of these, that is, over 70%, obtained their full Matriculation. The remaining three failed by a few marks only, took supplementaries in September and then received their certificates for their full Matriculation. In the Senior Matriculation Examination which admits into the second year of Arts or into the first year of Applied Science, there were seventy four candidates from the whole of Canada and only ten were successful. Ashbury sent in four boys for this examination. One obtained his full Senior Matriculation, one failed in two subjects which he took again in September and ob- tained his full certificate and a third while failing to get his Senior Matriculation was admitted to the first year in Arts at McGill. Considering the comparatively small percentage of Candidates who were successful we think that Ashbury has more than kept up her record for Matriculation successes. The following boys are those who have fully Matriculated at McGill : Junior Matriculation. T. Bates. G. Forbes. W. Pugsley C. Stanfield. J. Guthrie. W. Hart. F. Macorquodale. B. Morgan. D. McLachlin. M. Turner. G. Currie. THE ASHBURIAN 3 Senior Matriculation G. Garvock. R. MacKenzie. P. Scott admitted to first year in Arts. We have to record the departure from our Stai¥ of Mr. Clara- but, Mr. Phihips and Mr. Weston. We extend to them our hearty wishes for every success in their new spheres of work. The Prefects for this year are: — A. Fauquier (Head Prefect), E. Beardmore, A. B. Brodie, R. Craig, D. F. Macorquodale, B. R. Ritchie, J. Rowley, D. Woods, B. Gilmour. New Masters. We extend a very hearty welcome to the following masters who joined the Staff in September last. Mr. C. W. Thompson, M.A., of Durham School and Wor- cester College, Oxford, where he was Murray-Miller Prizeman in 1909 and 1910.

E. Fauquier, for many years the devoted friend and a Governor of Ashbury, for his generous gift of a Moving Picture Machine. This will prove a great asset to our equipment and will be a source both of instruction and amusement to the boys for many years to come. The machine is a particularly good one and complies with all the requirements demanded by the Insurance Companies. It was used for the first time on the evening of Thanksgiving Day and was very much appreciated. The Ides of March. The Ashbury College Literary and Dramatic Society will pre- sent the Tragedy " J i s Caesar " in the Little Theatre, Ottawa, ■ on the Ides of March, Saturday, March 15th, 1930, at 8.15 p.m. The price of reserved seats will be Two Dollars, including tax. Tickets will be ready for sale on January 7th. Reservations will be made in strict rotation, according to the post-mark date of orders. All communications should be addressed to Mr. B. K. Howis, Ashbury College. It is particularly hoped that parents and Old Ashburians will make a special effort to be present. It is felt that this effort on the part of the boys should commend itself to everyone, and be warmly encouraged. The Society ' s Presentation will be honoured by the presence of Their Excellencies the Governor General and the Viscountess Willingdon, who have graciously accepted an invitation to the per- formance.

Smellie, W. Bonnar, C. Gausden, E. W. Beardmore, E. C. Elwood, H. Cann. Congratulations to Southam and his XI on winning both School matches, beating the Masters and finishing the season on top of the Ottawa Valley Cricket Council League. The School XI was unbeaten. In some of the O.V.C.C. matches a team made up of Masters and boys played. Up to the end of June Ashbury had won seven, drawn one and lost one of these games. In September it was sometimes difficult to collect a really representative side but thanks to Southam, Smellie and Gillies, who never failed to turn out, and to the assistance of Masters and Old Boys no match had to be scratched and some very good games were enjoyed. We were glad to see R. Bowman playing for Ash- bury again. During the Season the School played sixteen matches in which they scored a total of 2178 runs for the loss of 133 wickets against a total of 1897 for the loss of 160 wickets. The highest score THE ASHBURIAN 9 made by Ashbury was 219 for 4 wickets against B.C.S. on May 24th in Montreal, and the lowest 64 in the 1st Innings against L.C.C. on May 25th in Montreal. The highest score made against Ashbury was 230 for 8 wickets made by Defence C.C. on Sept. 7th, and the lowest 27 by Cathedral C.C. on May 18th at Rideau Hall. We coneratulate A. Fauquier on his excellent Batting average of 45.3 which won the Wilson Batting Trophy, and P. Smellie on winning the Wilson Bowling Trophy with the very good average of 6.9. The batting throughout the team was good. Bonnar and Gaus- den made a steady first pair. Southam played a number of in- valuable innings in faultless style, and Smellie, Beardmore and Fauquier could always be relied upon to make runs, so that the remainder of the team were not often called upon to bat. They all showed promise with the bat and did their share in the success of the team by their work in the field and their unselfish keenness in practice. Smellie, Gillies and Fauquier formed a strong bowling trio with plenty of variety. Southam and Cann bowled well when needed. The fielding of the whole team was of a very high standard. A word of commendation is due to Bonnar, Beardmore and Gausden who came up from Montreal after School closed to play in matches and to Southam, Smellie and Gillies who never failed to play either in June or September, often at considerable incon- venience to themselves. Southam who set an excellent example himself was indeed lucky to have such loyal support. 2nd XI Colours were awarded to N. Gillies, A. Henderson, B. Robinson, G. Perodeau, P. Scott, D. Woods and B. Ritchie. CRICKET CHARACTERS 1929. G. T. Southam, Capt. An excellent captain. His keenness and example were of the greatest value to the side. A sound and stylish bat. A brilliant field and useful change bowler. A. H. Fauquier, Vice-Capt. A good forcing bat, can score freely if unconventionally anywhere in front of the wicket. Fielded well. A useful fast-medium bowler. P. L. B. Smellie. A good bat with a variety of scoring strokes, and a safe field. Developed into the most useful bowler on the side. He studied the batsmen, set his field and varied his bowling cleverly which deservedly brought him to the top of the averages. W. Bonnar. Lived up to his promise as a bat. He has a good defence and can score freely off loose balls — a good combin- ation for a first wicket batsman. A brilliant and safe field. Shows promise as a change bowler. 10 THE ASHBURIAN E. W. Beardmore. a stylish bat, was more aggressive than last year and played some very useful innings. Fielded well at point. C. Gausden. Has a variety of good strokes but lacks the timing to get the ball away. A sound defensive bat. E. C. Elwood. a promising left-handed bat. Let very few byes and should develop into a very good wicket-keeper next sea- son. H. Cann. a useful bowler with a good action. Shows promise as an aggressive bat. N. Gillies. On his day a very good slow bowler with spin and a deceptive flight. A safe deep field and stone-wall batsman. G. Perodeau. a pains-taking bat who shows considerable promise. A safe catch and clean ground field. A. Henderson. Should develop into a good scoring batsman. A brilliant field. F. B. Robinson. A promising bat with a very free style. A good field. D. Woods. Came into the side late. Is a very good field and should become a sound bat. BATTING AVERAGES 1929 No. of Times not Highest in Name Innings out Runs an innings Average A. H.

The above match was played on the McGill Campus on Friday, May 24th., and resulted in a decisive victory for Ashbury by nine wickets. Bishop ' s won the toss, and batted first. With the exception of Davis, who made a lively 30, which included six fours ( the Bishop ' s batsmen did not show much resistance against the steady bowling of Fauquier, Smellie and Gillies, backed by keen fielding, one of the best examples of which was Beardmore ' s catch at point, dismissing Wilson. On Ashbury going in to bat they soon took command of the Bishop ' s attack. Gausden and Bonnar took, the score to 57 by attractive batting, before Bonnar was caught by Kenny. Southam then joined Gausden, and the Bishop ' s total was passed without the loss of further wickets. Southam was well stumped by Taylor after a useful 18. Beardmore added 20 in good style before being caught, after which Fauquier joined Gausden. ' Runs came fast, and these two added ID ' S before Gausden was bowled after a very good innings of 80, in which he did not give a single chance. His innings included eleven fours. Fauquier carried his bat for 71, which was made in his usual aggressive style, and included 13 fours. 12 THE ASHBURIAN ASHBURY vs. BISHOP ' S COLiLEGE SCHOOL, LENNOXVILLB Played at McGill, May 24ith. 1st Innings of B.C.S.

ASHBURY COLLEGE versus LOWER CANADA COLLEGE This match was played on the L.C.C. ground on Saturday, May 2i5th. Lower Canada won the toss and elected to bat first. Minnion and Brad- ley both bated well, and were mainly responsible for the KCC. total of 74. The bowling and fielding on the part of the School was good. Fau- quier took two wickets for five runs, and Smellie four for eleven. On Ashbury going in to bat they immediately met with disaster. Bonnar and Fauquier were bo ' th bowled in Bradley ' s first over, and Southam fell a victim to Stevenson in the very next over. Beardmore was caught and bowled by Bradley, and four wickets were down for 7 runs. Smellie then joined Gausden, who had been batting patiently, and these two stopped the rot which had set in. Gausden went at 28, well caught at point by Stevenson. Robinson was bowled by Bradley without the addition of further runs, and then Perodeau and Smellie added an- other 20 runs by good cricket before Smellie was caught at cover. The remaining batsmen added only 15 runs, and the whole side was dis- missed for 64. In the second innings L.C.C. were dismissed for 50, the only bright spot being Stevenson ' s ' 24. On Ashbury going to bat for the second time, Bonnar and Smellie opened. Ashbury fared better this time, and owing to useful innings by Smellie (16), Fauquier (14), and Beardmore (15 not out) the L.C.C. total was passed for the loss of only five wickets.

On Friday, May 31st, M.A.A.A. paid their first visit to Ashbury Col- lege, and a thoroughly enjoyable game resulted in a victory for the visitors by 43 runs. On winning the toss the visiting team sent in C. E. Gausden and W. Bonnar to face the bowling of H. iF. Wright and B. K. Howis. This pair sent their team off to a fair start by putting on 39 for the first wicket, at which total Howis bowled Gausden. J. S. Oppe, an old Ash- burian, came in, but in reaching out to Howis was stumped. Howis ' next over was somewhat sensational, as Norman was beautifully caught in the slips by Smellie; Kortlang taken at the wicket as he endeavoured to glide the ball to leg; and Wallace was caught by Cann. It looked as though a rot was setting in, for half the visitors ' wickets were down for 51. At this point Mr. Howis had sent down seven overs and captured all five wickets for 9 runs. Clarke arrived, and with Bonnar proceeded to settle down to stop the impending collapse. This they did to such good effect that 73 were added before Bonnar was well taken by Gausden for a splendid 69, which included two sixes and ten fours. The remaining batsmen all played consistently, the total eventually reach- ing 213. On Ashbury going in they made a disastrous start, Gausden being vcaught in the slips off his father ' s bowling from the first ball. Southam came in and started very confidently; but in trying to turn a straight one, stopped the ball with his pads, and had to go. iMr. Pattisson then helped Mr. Wright to add 39 for the next wicket before he was caught by Oppe. Bonnar was soon out, but Fauquier found the bowling to his liking and a long stand ensued. With the hundred up Taylor went on to bowl, and shortly afterwards, Mr. Wright, who had been batting beautifully, com- pleted his 50. Gausden went at 120 and bowled Fauquier; Smellie was bowled soon afterwards, and Mr. Wright was dismissed at the same total, after giving a splendid display.

INTERMEDIATE CRICKET It was unfortunate that the match with Lower Canada fell through this year owing to the inability of our opponents to raise a team. As a result the side had to be content with three matches against scratch XIs, and although the latter served a useful pur- pose, they naturally could not take the place of a school side. The XI showed considerable keenness and gave promise of developing into a more than useful side as they were unusually well balanced. Of the batsmen W. MacBrien, Woods and Kelly were the most consistent, though Robertson played one good innings. N. Gait, Kelly, Schlemm and F. Coristine all bowled steadily and the fielding was well up to the standard of the previous year. Several of the younger members of the side showed promise and with another year behind them should prove useful next season. Ritchie was an enthusiastic and capable captain. In the House matches Dominion beat Ottawa, but the weather prevented the final tie from being played. F.E.B.W. JUNIOR CRICKET Good weather enabled us to enjoy thoroughly our all too brief Cricket Season. Having taught the newcomers the elements of the game, excellent progress was made. It was soon discovered that there was promise of good batsmen in Ferguson I, Mac- Carthy I, Wood and Roberts-Allan. Of the Bowlers, Wodehouse I, Jacob and Wilson I were the most useful. Ferguson II and Mac- Carthy II should develop into wicket-keepers. As each week went by, there was a distinct improvement in the fielding of all the players. 18 THE ASHBURIAN MacDonald was easily the best all-round Cricketer, anjd the Bat was therefore awarded to him. In a few words it may be said that Junior Cricket is in a very healthy and flourishing state and the Intermediates may look for- ward to welcoming its members next year with every confidence that each boy can hold a straight bat, has learnt to " back up " and if told to field at ' ' Point " will not lose himself behind the umpire at square leg. In the House Championship, Ottawa defeated both Dominion and Montreal. In a friendly game, the Boarders won from the Day-Boys. HOUSE MATCHES Scores Ottawa 136 v. Dominion 30 Ottawa 68 v. Montreal 49 B.K.T.H. The Sports were held on Wednesday, June 12th. The after- noon turned somewhat cold which was unfortunate for the specta- tors but was much appreciated by the competitors. All the events were well filled and keenly contested. Gausden and Smellie are to be congratulated on their consistent perform- ances. The former won the 100 yds., the 220 yds. in record time and the 440 for the second year, thus obtaining 15 points and win- ning the Fleming Cup. Smellie won the High Jump for the second year, the 120 yds. hurdles and tied with Forbes for first place in the Long Jump thereby being runner-up for the Challenge Cup with 13 points. The Intermediate Challenge Cup was won by Elwood and the Junior Cup by J. Gait. The Beardmore Cup for the mile handi- cap was won by Snelling. THE ASHBURIAN 19 The Inter-House Relay was won by Ottawa, Calder and D. Gillies drawing well away from their rivals and Smellie maintain- ing the lead in the final 440. The Inter-House Tug of War caused plenty of amusement, in the first round Ottawa won from Montreal. In the final Dominion pulled Ottawa over the mark. A new feature on the programme was a Tusf of War between Old Boys from R.M.C. and other Old Boys. The first pull went to the civilians but R.M.C. won the next two pulls. We were very glad to see so many Old Boys from R.M.C. on the field and hope that they will be able to make the visit an annual event.

The rain which had been threatening during the Sports events failed to hold up for the second section of the Closing Day cere- monies, and although it was not suffciently heavy to drive the audi- ence indoors, the speakers out of consideration for them, cut their speeches short. Sir William Clarke gave an address which con- tained much practical advice, and was followed by the Headmaster who read his report on the year ' s work of the School. The prizes were then presented by. Sir William Clarke, Lady Clarke, Mrs. J. W. Woods, Mrs. J. B. Frazer, and Mrs. W. H. Rowley. The prizes presented, besides those won in the Athletic Sports and for Boxing, were : — Lawn Tennis Cups. Open Singles — W. Bonnar. Open Doubles — G. Southam and A. Fauquier.

Owing to the late opening of the School we did not have the usual week ' s " Soccer " in preparation for the sterner test of Rugby, and therefore it is all the more creditable that the 1st. XI won, both the match against the Masters and the first match with St. Alban ' s. The return St. Alban ' s match will be played on Nov. 16th. and the account will appear in the next issue. The Masters v. School game was played on Monday, Oct. 21st, the occasion of a Half-holiday given by the Headmaster in recogni- tion of the succcess achieved by the Cricket XI in the past season, and also the Rugby win over L.C.C. in Montreal, this being- the first time since 1911 that Ashbury have defeated L.C.C. on their own ground. A very even game ended in a win for the School by 1 goal ' nothing. For the first twenty minutes the Masters had much the better of the game but they found Grant more than a match for any shots which the consistent marking of Elwood, Robinson and Beardmore let them take. The School settled down and towards 22 THE ASHBURIAN the end of the first half and all through the second more than held their own. The forwards combined well, and it was on one of their combination attacks that MacBrien found himself with the ball, unmarked and in front of the goal, so that he had no difficuty in beating- Mr. Thompson. In the second half the Masters made determined efforts to keep the School from scoring again and also to score themselves. But in spite of trying quite a new formation in the history of ' ' Soccer " they were unable to even the score, although they man- aged to prevent any further score on the part of the School. Both teams worked hard but the forwards on both sides lacked scoring power and several excellent opportunities were missed. The Mas- ter ' s shots were lacking both in elevation and direction and the School dithered about too much when they should have been shooting. On Saturday, Oct. 27th, owing to the kindness of Mrs. H. S. Southam, Mr. G. Fauquier, Cargill Southam and Jack Ewart, who lent their cars for the transportation of the team, the XI was able to go down to Brockville. St. Alban ' s won the toss and decided to play with the wind and hill. Ashbury kicked off and St. Alban ' s immediately attacked, Woods cleared and play was in the St. Alban ' s half. Two corners were forced by the forwards and well taken by MacBrien but the inside forwards were not given the chance to take advantage of them. For a time play was very even. St. Alban ' s started several dangerous attacks but their combination was broken up by the Ashbury halves who were playing a very sound defence and at the same time feeding their forwards well directed passes. Shortly before half-time Calder, who played a very clever game throughout, against a good and much heavier opponent, MacFaralane, took a good pass from Elwood, outwitted the half and back and put in a perfect centre which Fauquier deflected into the goal, Greene having no chance to save. Half time. Ashbury 1, St. Alban ' s 0. In the second half, with the wind and hill, Ashbury carried the play into the St. Alban ' s half, but an inclination to kick the ball too far ahead gave the St. Alban ' s backs time to clear which they invariably did well. Robinson had one good shot at goal which Green saved. Shortly afterwards Greene was again called up- on to save a hard drive from Smellie. The Ashbury forwards force ' several corners but neither MacBrien nor Hammond made enough allowance for the wind and the ball was put behind the net. The St. Alban ' s backs kicked well into the wind and finally the St. Alban ' s forwards took the play into the Ashbury half. Thom took the ball through the Ashbury backs but Grant came out and forced him to shoot wide. A penalty against Ritchie was well saved by Grant. Ashbury cleared and took the play down to the other end. All the forwards were well up and a goal looked cer- tain but Greene showed great coolness and saved well. Two free 24 THE ASHBURIAN kicks against Ashbury put St. Alban ' s on the offensive again and Ashbury were forced to concede two corners, one nearly resulted in a goal, but Grant dived and saved. St Alban ' s forced another corner, immediately afterwards the final whistle blew. Both goal-keepers were well tested and both played sound games. The St. Alban ' s team played hard throughout, the kick- ing of Stewart being especially good. The Ashbury team all worked hard and deserved their success. Robinson and Elwood stood out because of the way in which they not only tirelessly worried their opponents but consistently initiated attacks by their good passing. The Ime-ups : Ashbury — Goal, Grant; backs, Ritchie, Woods; halves, Elwood, Robin ;on, Beardmore ; forwards, Calder, MacBrien, Smellie, Fauquier, Hammond. St. Alban ' s — Goal, Greene ; backs, Stewart, Anderson ; halves, Knight, Loomis, MacFarlane; forwards. Grant, Hugman, Christmas, Thom, Hutton. Very hearty congratulations are due to Lou Bates and the Football team at the end of the most successful season in the annals of Ashbury. We played our three major fixtures, two games with L.C.C. and one with B.C.S., winning all three, a feat un-equalled in any past season. But the success of the season does not lie entirely in winning these three games ; it lies in the spirit and keenness with which the game was played by everyone. The credit for the results must all be given to the Captain and the team. As was the case in the record 1927-1928 hockey season we had no professional coach, which is in the best interests of School sport. THE ASHBURIAN 25 We have always aimed at open football and this year we de- veloped this style of play to a greater extent than ever. L. Bates was the inspiration of the team, his judgement and tact prevented any of the quarrelling and arguing which sometimes arises and does so much to impair the efficiency of a side, and his personal keenness and example in every department of the •ame set a very high standard for every-one else to try to attain. Fauquier invariably made yards and could always be relied upon to give a good account of himself whether on the back-field or in the line, which he strengthened considerably when called upon to play there. Craig last year was an uncertain catch. He completely eradicated this fault this year so that his safe catching and fine running were big assets to the side ; he also combined very well with Smellie in the end runs which were such a feature of our game with B.C.S. In Gilmour we had a hard working quarter and a sure tackle. Ritchie, Henderson and Robinson were all good out- sides, getting down on the kicks and tackling hard. Smellie made a very efficient half, he ran with determination and was very hard to stop. Rowley, MacDougall, Perodeau, Grant and Beardmore were all good line-plungers and worked hard.

Craig kicked to the L.C.C. five yard line. Ashbury held L.C.C. for their three downs and then Bates plunged through the line for a touch which he converted. Ashbury 6. L.C.C. 0. Mickles began the second quarter by kicking short of the Ashbury line, the ball went loose and L.C.C. recovered it six yards out. On the first down Burpee plunged through the line for a try which was not converted. Following an exchange of kicks in the centre of the field Bates broke away to within five yards of the L.C.C. line. Gilmour and Fauquier were both held but Bates crashed through on the third down for his second try which he also converted. Towards the end of the quarter Smellie misjudged a high punt from Fraser behind the line and Carsley who was following up fell on the loose ball for a try. Ashbury 12. L.C.C. 10. Mickles broke clean away and was apparently headed for a try but Smellie brought him down with a fine tackle. Fraser kicked over the line to Smellie who ran it out. There was no scoring in the third quarter although both teams were fighting hard. Mickles was playing a brilliant game for L.C.C. repeatedly making yards with elusive runs. Fauquier and Bates were in every play, tackling hard and surely, and plunging for big gains. THE ASHBURIAN 29 In the fourth quarter play was very even until towards the end when Craig ran to the L.C.C. 25 yards where he was thrown into touch. Bates attempted a drop kick which went into the scrim- mage. Henderson recovered the loose ball on the L.C.C. 5 yards line. Gilmour was held on the first down but Fauquier crashed through the line on the second and scored, the convert failing. This ended the scoring. G. Perodeau, E. Beardmore, J. Rowley, B. Robinson, R. Wode- house, J. MacDougall were awarded their colours. ASHBURY vs. L.C.C. Played at L.C.C, Sat. Oct. 19th. Won by Ashbury 8-6. In the first quarter Ashbury played with the wind and settling down at once kept L.C.C. hemmed in their own 40 yds. Bates failed in two attempts to drop goals but each time the L.C.C. backs were tackled behind their line and Ashbury scored. A touch was added when Bates broke through from a down near the line. The convert failed. In the second quarter L.C.C. played better football and got their end runs away well. They kept up a strong offensive. Bur- pee kicked a point ; and then with two minutes to go for half time and on a first down on the Ashbury line Bates lifted a high punt into the open field, Burpee caught it and had no trouble in running over for a try which was not converted. Ashbury 7, L.C.C. 6. In the third quarter Ashbury again had the wind in their favour but L.C.C. kicked well and consistently and although neither Craig nor Smellie made any mistakes in retrieving the kicks and both ran them back determinedly the tackling of the L.C.C. out- sides kept Ashbury from getting within kicking distance. Both teams were working end runs and the passing was good. Ashbury might with advantage have used this signal more often as the line plungers with the exception of MacDougall, and Rowley who was only used once, very rarely succeeded in gaining any yards. In the 4th quarter Ashbury worked hard to keep L.C.C. from making use of the wind to kick points and succeeded so well that on two occasions they were within a yard of less of scoring touches. Once the whistle blew as Bates was falling over the line, and on another occasion when Gilmour was thrown back from the line, the referee ruled that the ball was dead outside. At length Beard- more kicked into touch in goal and this ended the scoring. Fauquier, Craig, T. Bates, Smellie and MacBrien were awarded their colours after this game. 30 THE ASHBURIAN ASHBURY vs. B.C.S. Played on the McGill Campus. Monday, Oct. 28th. In perfect football weather and before a large and enthusiastic crowd of Old Boys, Ashbury produced the best football of the season and defeated Bishop ' s College School 19 to 5. The first quarter opened sensationally. Bishop ' s kicked to Craig who ran the ball back to Bishop ' s forty. Gilmour called an end run, Bates passed to Craig who ran round the Bishop ' s backs and scored a try. The convert failed. Shortly afterwards Beard- more got on to the Bishop ' s backs when they fumbled, kicked the ball over the line and fell on it for a touch which Bates converted. Ashbury 11, B.C.S. 0. In the second quarter an Ashbury kick was blocked, Pay ton recovered the ball and ran fifty yards for Bishop ' s only score. Bishop ' s tried a number of forward passes with varying success. Bates attempted a drop which went for 1 point. Ashbury used end runs to advantage and also ran back the Bishop ' s kicks re- peatedly. Bates, Smellie and Craig were playing fine football and combining in a number of spectacular passing movements. A minute before half time Ashbury were in possession on the half line. Bates took the ball from the snap, passed to Craig who ran twenty yards and passed to Smellie as he was tackled, and Smellie ran to within a yard of the Bishop ' s line, where he was thrown into touch. The Half-Time whistle blew before another play could be called. Ashbury 12, B.C.S. 5. In the third quarter Craig kicked a point for Ashbury. Gil- mour and the outsides following up a kick, tackled the Bishop ' s back who dropped the ball which Ritchie kicked over the line, and fell on, but the Referee disallowed the try. In the fuorth quarter Bishop ' s tried every play they knew and unloosed a strong offensive. Ashbury were hard put to it to keep them in check, when Henderson intercepted a forward pass and settled the issue by running half the length of the field for the third and last try, which Bates converted. THE ASHBURIAN 31 ASHBURY COLLEGE vs. ASHBURY COLLEGE OLD BOYS. On Monday, November 11th, the School brought a successful Rugby season to a close by defeating a representative team of Old Boys by a score of 20 to 5. The Old Boys, in spite of having such stars as Joe Irvin on the team, failed to make much headway against the School. The game was witnessed by a large and en- thusiastic crowd of old boys and friends of the School. The ground was in a very slippery condition on account of the recent rain, but in spite of this a very interesting game was played. The Old Boys kicked off from the South end, but were immediately pressed back into their own half. The scoring was opened by L. Bates, 32 THE ASHBURIAN who went over for an un-converted touch in the first quarter. Barney Carswell, who captained the Old Boys, equalized in the same quarter, by following up hard and falling on a fumbled ball behind the line. In the second quarter Gilmour put the School ahead by a sud- den dash over the line. This was a good example of what fast and alert play can do for the team who are on the look-out for such opportunities. The third quarter was a repetition of the second, the School having much the best of the play throughout. L. Bates again went over for a touch which was not converted. The outstanding feature of this quarter was the line-plunging of David McKenzie, the tackling by Carswell, and the open field running of Irvin. On the School side the whole team played so consistently well that it would be invidious to single out any individual players for special mention. The fast pace set by the School in the first three quarters seemed to have tired the Old Boys, who in the last quarter resorted to kicking as the best means of defence. In spite of the slippery ball, Craig and Smellie played a very sound game in the back field, and always succeeded in running out the kicks. Towards the close Gilmour, taking the ball himself, ran twenty yards for the last touch of the game, which was not converted. Line-up. Ashbury College L. Bates R. Craig P. Smellie T. Bates B.

We had our first hockey practice at the Auditorium on Mon- day, Nov. 4th. Our hours for practice at the Auditorium this Season are Mondays and Thursdays from 4 to 5 o ' clock. The prospects for another good season are very bright. Gil- mour is back to look after the net. L. Bates and Craig are working well together on defence and T. Bates is showing great improve- ment on last year. He will run Craig close for a regular berth. Beardmore is filling Southam ' s place at centre competently with Smellie and Fauquier on the wings. This is their third year in their positions and we expect a lot from them. The alternate forward line, Coristine in the centre flanked by Perodeau and Elwood is showing good combination and deter- mined back checking.

In the year 1952 an " Old Boy " was revisiting his school. Twenty years had passed since he had last entered its gates, twenty years spent in an unsuccessful search for the " Lost World " among the jungles of South America. As a consequence, his guide, a child of about seventeen years, was astonished at the ignorance shown by his charge of the ways and fashions of the modern civilized world. " This is our largest playing-field, " said the guide, pointing to an expanse of ploughed-up earth, " Playing-field ! " Exclaimed the visitor " When I was here we sometimes had grass on the field. I thought this was your vegetable garden ! " " If you wait for about ten minutes you will see why there isn ' t any grass now, " replied the student. Eight minutes later the Old Boy saw what was to him the most remarkable display in two decades. A Creature, dressed in all the paraphernalia of the errant knights of old, appeared on the field. He was soon followed by others, similarly attired, who began to form two " teams " . When a sufficient number of these armoured and visored beings, each armed with a lariat and a. wooden club, had collected, a person in a suit of chain mail, with a whistle in one hand and a crowbar in the other appeared on the scene. 38 THE ASHBURIAN " What on earth is all this? " asked the visitor in amazement. " Haven ' t you ever seen a game of this kind before? — It ' s the same as it was when you were here, I ' m sure, — except for a slight change in outfit. " He in the chain armour approached the centre of the field carrying a leather ball, which he gave to one of the players. Fifteen seconds later a noise like that of a busy machine shop destroyed the peace of the neighborhood. A clanking and grinding of armour-plate, with every now and then a heavy crash as well- thrown lasso brought a man to the ground, was punctured at in- tervals by the skriek of the referee ' s whistle and hoarse shouts from the opposing teams. " Why do they use clubs? " asked the visitor. " They didn ' t at first, " replied his guide, " But they found that knuckle-dusters weren ' t much good against steel plate. " " But why use anything like that? " " Well, they ' ve got to hold their lines somehow; at any rate they ' re very useful when some one goes for the ball carrier. " Suddenly a shower of sparks rose into the air ; someone had fallen heavily on a rock in the middle of the " field " . " Accidents " were numerous. The referee bent his crowbar nearly double while attempting to separate two interlocked gladiators. The stretcher- party was hopelessly overworked. " A good clean game " remarked the Old Boy ' s companion. The visitor said nothing, but left for South America to hunt for " The Lost World. " RADIO NEWS:— STATION ACRP— SEPT. 25th.
