We hope that this event is the begin- ning of an unbroken chain of such reunions where the friendships formed here may be revived and the past and present progress of the school discussed, and that the revival of the Old Boys ' Association will help this magazine to obtain a fuller news section. Under the weather-cock of a Cambridge College are the words ' ' Facias Prosperum Iter ' ' the message which the rooster gives to those leaving the college walls for the last time. We have no such symbol here, but in a, perhaps superficially perfunctory good-bye, there is the sincere original sentiment of the word, — " God be with you, " We will hear with interest always, of the journeys and fortunes of our Old Boys, and with pride, when there comes back to us the verdict, ' ' Prosperum iter fecit. " SCHOOL NOTES Confirmation Service Our Annual Confirmation Service was held on Wednesday evening, April 16th, in the School Chapel in the presence of many parents. The altar was beautifully decorated with flowers, the gift of Mrs. W. H. Rowley. The Rite was administered by the Rt. Rev. J. C. Roper, Bishop of Ottawa, who gave an instructive and helpful address. The following boys were confirmed and received their first Communion on Easter Day. George Abel. Robert Stanfield. David Fauquier. James Symington. Donald Keith Kennedy. Charles Victor Vickers. George Malloch. 2 THE ASHBURIAN Mr. Van der Byl has resigned his position on the staf¥, as he had to return to England, owing to the grave illness of his mother, who, we all hope, will make a complete recovery. Mr. Hedley Bridge, for many years an able and successful Mathematical master, and who at one time was on the staff of Ashbury, has taken his place for the balance of the term. During the visit to Ottawa of a party of Headmasters of English Public Schools, Ashbury was visited by Mr. H. L. Fisher, Headmaster of Charterhouse, Mr. J. Bell, Headmaster of St. Paul ' s, and Mr. M. L. Jacks, Headmaster of Mill Hill. During the summer vacation many improvements are to be made in the school buildings, and next term every bedroom will have hot and cold water. During the winter months, a Cinematograph performance was given every Saturday evening, and the projector given by Mr. Fauquier proved very efficient. Fensom and Robertson were respon- sible for working the machine. The Lawn Tennis Committee is composed of : — Craig, Rowley 1, Carrique and MacCarthy 1. Three courts have been completely re-surfaced and all are in very good condition. The School Debating Society has not met since Christmas, but IV C has conducted a debate nearly everv week. Among the sub- jects debated was: — ' ' That Vancouver is likely to become a greater city than New York, " which brought forth some interesting argu- ments. Many improvements have been effected in the Senior Library this year. A large new bookcase has been added, half-a-dozen oak chairs have been purchased from part of the profits of the Literary and Dramatic Societv, and the walls are gradually being adorned with pictures framed alike. Occupying a conspicuous place are a photograph of the cast of ' ' Julius Caesar " as presented at the Little Theatre, and a framed programme signed by Their Excellencies the Governor-General and the Viscountess Willingdon. The Library has been completely catalogued, except for refer- ence books, and the new system of registration by number rather than by name has been found much more efficient. Library cases have been supplied for the periodicals. We are indebted to Mrs. W. H. Rowley for a gift of the Seventh Volume of the Cambridge Ancient History, to Mr. A. G. Doughty for two volumes of his " Under the Lily and the Rose, " to THE ASHBURIAN 3 the Headmaster for several books and to many boys who have given reading material to the Library. The Library has also been enlarged by the purchase of about 150 new books. A Draughts Competition was organised by the Junior Library before the Easter Holidays and was won by Ghent who beat Fer- guson 11 in the final. Another competition for the Junior Library is now in progress. Prizes are to be given to the juniors taking the best and second best photographs between April 2()th and May 20th. The badminton tournament w as won by Henderson, who beat Schlemm in the final. Honour has been brought to the school by the award of a Massey Scholarship to J. T. Wilson who was at Ashbury from 1919 to 1925. The Massey Scholarships are similar in nature to the Rhodes Scholarships, but are open only to Canadians, and are tenable at Cambridge University. While at Ashbury Jock Wilson won four first form prizes, one second, and the Governor General ' s Medal, and was on the Inter- mediate Football Team. He took his Honours Matriculation in 1926 and proceeded to Trinity College, Toronto. He took First Class Honours at the end of his first year in Mathematics and Physics and graduated this year in Geophysics. He has spent several sum- 4 THE ASHBURIAN mers doing field work in Geology including one summer with Mr. Odell of Mt. Everest fame. Besides obtaining high scholastic honours, Wilson played a prominent part in the social and athletic activities at Trinity College. He has been successively Treasurer, Secretary, and President, of the Literary Society, of the Geological Society, and of the Harriers, and was a member of the Students ' Administrative Council. He also debated for his College, his Univer- sity, and for Hart House, and has taken part in amateur dramatics. We wish him success and the best of luck at St. John ' s College, Cambridge, where he takes up his studies this Fall. THE ASHBURY COLLEGE LITERARY AND DRAMATIC SOCIETY On the proposal of Mr. C. W. Thompson, a society, to be called " The Ashbury College Literary and Dramatic Society, " was formed on March 8th, 1930, at a meeting of the cast of " Juliiis Caesar. " At that meeting and at one held on April 7th, the following officers were elected : Honorary President — The Rev. Dr. G. P. Woollcombe. President — Mr. C. W. Thompson. Secretary — R. M. Leathem. Treasurer — Mr. B. K. T. Howis. Committee — D. F. Macorquodale, H. C. Hammond, J. W. H. Rowley. The Society consists of those in the school who were directly connected with the production of " Julius Caesar, " and it may add to its membership from the Upper School as it sees fit, and elect Honorary and Associate Members. The object of the Society is to promote the interests of the school in drama and in literary knowledge and to provide entertainments. It is hoped that the Society will be able to produce one or two short plays for the school as well as a bigger production. The proceeds from " Julius Caesar amounted to $250.19. Part of this has been devoted to buying new chairs for the Senior Library, a framed copy of the programme, and a picture of the cast. The first Honorary Member is Mr. Leslie Chance, who was in charge of the final rehearsals of the play, and there are thirty Foundation Members who will remain permanent members after they leave school. THE ASHBURIAN 5 The Society takes this opportunity of thanking all those who helped to make its first effort so successful. In addition to those named above, the members are : — Mr. W. H. Brodie, D. Mathias, C. Eliot, S. Macdonnell, B. Ritchie, R. Coristine, H. Fensom, M. Grant, A. MacCarthy, M. Menzies, D. Monk, G. Perodeau, P. Smellie, R. Wodehouse, J. Magor, W. Robertson, R. Stanfield, G. Wodehouse, G. WhitcBer, G. Abel, and J. Calder. The first Annual Dinner of the Society was held at the Chateau Laurier on May 7th. JULIUS CAESAR The Literary and Dramatic Society presented Shakespeare ' s ' Julius Caesar " at the Little Theatre, Ottawa, on Saturday, March 15th, in the presence of Their Excellencies the Governor General and Lady Willingdon and of a large and distinguished audience.

Marcus Brutus Cassius Casca Cinna Trebonius Ligarius Decius Brutus. Metellus Cimber Flavius 6 THE ASHBURIAN A special prologue, written by Mr. Thompson was spoken by M. Grant. The first verses were : — Gentles, welcome all ! And first to you, my Lord, That comes to represent our noble King, Respectful salutations from our school. To you, first Lady of the State, we now Present our welcome too. May this our land be ever fortunate Thus to be linked with those we love the best By ties so noble, and so richly blest. This night upon the stage we shall enact A tragedy of Rome. O hearken well : For on this very day, (the Ides of March) Great Caesar fell. Again he bleeds in sport; and you shall hear The Bard of Avon tell the tragic tale; How Cassius taught the noble Brutus then To stab his friend! And Antony did stir the people up To mad revenge. The account of the performance given by the ' ' Ottazva Citizen ' contained the following appreciation of the acting : — " It is no small task for boys to play Shakespeare, and too much praise cannot be bestowed on those of Ashbury College for their remarkable per- formance. To commit the lines to memory is a feat alone, and the rehearsals are of necessity long and tedius, yet these young gentlemen accomplished both in the time outside of school hours, and without their preparations of daily lessons suffering. They indeed are to be sincerely commended. Brutus was the only character played by one of mature years, the part being taken by Mr. W. H. Brodie, one of the masters of the school. Mr. Brodie gave a thoughtful and dignified portrayal of " the noblest Roman of them all, " which was altogether in keeping with the finest traditions of the role. Among the boys the chief honors go to Ronald Leathem as the " lean and hungry " Cassius, and with the exception of a little trouble with his hands, he gave a very fine reading of the part of that arch conspirator. John Rowley, in the title role made an imperious and commanding figure, and gave a true interpretation of Shakespeare ' s conception of Rome ' s immortal hero. The blunt Casca was well played by Malcolm Grant, who also recited the admirable prologue. " The quick spirit which is Antony " was portrayed by Robert Wodehouse, who, though a little hurried in speech gave a sympathetic and moving study of the friend of Caesar. His playing of the historic scene in the forum after the murder of the conquerer, and his rendering of the well-known speech being noteworthy. The playing of female characters by boys in keeping with Elizabethan custom and Herbert Hammond and David Mathias as Portia and Calpurnia. respectively, did well in their roles. Several of the boys doubled in parts, but Scarth Macdonell had three to play, his Artemidorus being especially good. By a singular and apt coincidence, Saturday was the " ides of March, " the anniversary of the action of the play. " — K. McN. THE ASHBURIAN 7 As many visitors from Montreal who saw the production at the Little Theatre hoped that we would be able to repeat it in Mon- treal, a second performance was given at the Trinity Memorial Hall, Westmount on Monday, March 24th. The criticism given by the Dramatic Critic of the Montreal Daily Star was as follows : — " On the Thames ' South Bank true and well-tried actors (Ashbury College students), played Mr. William Shakespeare ' s tragedy ' Julius Caesar ' on the stage of the Fortune (Trinity Memorial Hall) . At the sounding of a trumpet the arras was drawn and these players did commence to act this tragedy of the noble Caesar. Montreal has not seen an amateur troupe produce an early English drama in the fashion of the period for a long time, and the effort these students put forth to adhere to the various seventeenth-century stage customs was very laudable. Here were the black drapes indicative of tragedy; the black and white flags denoting night and day respectively; the arras and traverses, the cloth wings and the inner stage. Only the lighting was carried out in the modern manner As though to assist the boys in obtaining the desired atmosphere the audience meandered in after the start of the play, roamed about, finally to settle down, — much as the rowdies did in the seventeenth-century pit The excursions and alarums, the crowds, the appropriate props, the correct costuming, all were as far as possible accurate; and the handling of the required mobs was most creditable in view of the available stage space. It would be unfair to distinguish between the thirty-six performers as the majority managed their speeches very capably. Even those boys who did Calpurnia and Portia after Elizabethan convention were thoroughly effective. Enunciation was, in all cases, sharp and clear, and the lines were delivered naturally and avoided the declamatory tendency. Some of the boys were wont not to make the best of some of the more important speeches; they found difficulty in disposing of their hands; and they were at times anxious to force the point. The main performance, however, overshadowed all these shortcomings, nor need they feel it necessary to ' buy men ' s voices to commend our deeds. ' " The Success of the Montreal venture was in a large measure due to the very kind help given by our Montreal friends. Due to early Easter holidays, less than a week was available for making all arrangements ; yet within that time we had secured a suitable hall ; distributed tickets; and made our coming visit widely known. Arrangements were made through the kindness of Canon Almond and the Officials of Trinity Memorial Church for the use of their hall, and every possible help and accommodation given us. Mrs. D. Forbes Angus was active in our interests ; the Montreal Press did everything possible to ensure success by advance notices and good positions for our advertisements; Montreal Old Boys co-operated energetically; Messrs. C W. Lindsay not only gave us free use of their store for the sale of tickets, but allowed us prominent display space in their show-window. The campaign for the sale of tickets both in the store and city was in the hands of Mrs. Claude Thompson. Trafalgar Institute, Miss Edgar ' s School, 8 THE ASHBURIAN Loyola College, Montreal West High School, Graduation Class took blocks of tickets, and the financial success of the venture was assured before the doors opened on the evening to the general public. SOCCER The return match with St. Alban ' s was played at Ashbury on Saturday, November the 10th, and ended in a win for Ashbury by 2 goals to 1. It was a fast game with plenty of good combination and exciting incidents. St. Alban ' s won the toss, so Ashbury kicked ofif against a diagonal wind. For the first few minutes play was confined to the centre of the field. Both forward lines were playing well but the halves and backs checked and cleared consistently. A number of corners were taken at both ends and the goal keepers had chances of showing their brilliancy. Ashbury were heavier and showed more enterprise and as a result opened the scoring when Fauquier took a pass from Smellie after a movement iniated by MacBrien and Calder and raced right in on Greene to give him no chance to save. Half Time Ashbury 1 St. Alban ' s 0. St. Alban ' s fought hard for the equaliser but their shooting was erratic. Ritchie relieved one rush with a nice kick and some smart passing between Robinson, Smellie and MacBrien led to Fauquier scoring his second goal. St. Alban ' s came back strongly and after a good combined rush Thom took a pass from Hutton and gave Grant no chance to save. This finished the scoring though both teams continued to play offensive football right up to the final whistle. We were only able to play the two school games with St. Alban ' s. Fauquier captained the team well and was always danger- ous in front of goal. Smellie and MacBrien combined unselfishly and were always up and also ready to help halves when they were pressed. Calder ' s dribbling was good and his centring very accurate. Robinson, Elwood and Beardmore fed their forwards well and were always working. Grant was himself, cool, confident and often bril- liant, while the backs though they gave us some bad moments by miss-kicking worked tirelessly and never gave up worrying their opponents or doing their best in a position in which they had not had much practice. Hammond knows how to play his position and should be very useful next year. -J. R. P. THE ASHBURIAN 9 Colonics: B. Gilmour. L. Bates. E. Beardmore. H. A. Fauquier. R. Craig. P. B. Smellie. T. Bates. F. Coristine. The Hockey Season was somewhat marred by injuries. Fau- quier, SmelHe, Elwood and Craig were all out of the game for long periods owing to injuries received while playing; on account of this and some sickness in Ottawa, we were able to play only one match against Ottawa University and none against local Collegiates. This left what was undoubtedly as good a team as we have had in the past, very short of match practice. Upper Canada did not come to Ottawa this year as they went West and we were unable to make a trip to Toronto. We had a new fixture, which provided a very enjoyable and interesting experience, a match with Clarkson College, Potsdam, N.Y. An account of the game will be found elsewhere. Clarkson were so pleased with the game that they already arranged a fixture for January 23rd, 1931. In Montreal we drew with Lower Canada and Bishop ' s College School, matches which we should have won. Lower Canada very unfortunately were unable to play the usual return match in Ottawa. We wound up the season by defeating Westmount High School at the Auditorium 2 — 0. Westmount High School won the Inter- Scholastic League of Montreal and this was the only game which they lost during a long season. Several faces will be missing from the Ashbury line up next year. Gilmour who has kept goal since 1926 and has captained the team for the last two years ; L. Bates, a spare in ' 27 and a big asset both in defence and attack in ' 28, ' 29, ' 30; Adam Fauquier who has scored a number of very opportune goals at critical periods in the past three seasons ; R. Craig who has played equally efficiently and hard both as a forward and a defence for the past three years 10 THE ASHBURIAN and T. Bates whose hard work when called upon and unfailing good humour at all times has helped very considerably the co-ordination of the team for the past two years, and E. Beardmore a hard working and polished centre. Everyone can look back upon the last three seasons with satisfaction. The standard of hockey at Ashbury has advanced considerably and the whole team which has been together for so long are to be heartily congratulated. And while not decrying the work of any one individual when all have done so well, we must give the largest share of credit to Gilmour, whose ability as a goal- keeper and captain inspired the confidence which brings success. In spite of the number of hockey players leaving this year, we can look to the future with the utmost confidence. Smellie, with three years ' experience behind him, and Coristine, Elwood, Perodeau and Thomas can be trusted to uphold the traditions of the past. D. M. Woods fully justified his selection as manager, carrying out his many tasks to the satisfaction and assistance of all. B. Robinson whose ability as a goal-keeper has somewhat suffered by comparison with the outstanding skill of Gilmour shared in the successes of the team both as spare goal-keeper and on account of the help which he was always ready to give. -J. R. P. ASHBURY vs. L.C.C. Played at the Forum, Montreal, Sat. Feb. 15th. Drawn 2 — 2 Two twenty-minute periods were played, in which Ashbury had much the better of the play, but careless work in front of goal lost them the game. L.C.C. worked hard and made the most of every opportunity. The first period started was very fast. Fauquier was sent off for heavy playing and Carsley opened the scoring by netting an easy one past Gilmour fourteen minutes after the start of the game. Shortly after the face-off Carsley and Craig were given a rest for heavy checking and were later joined by Eraser and Campbell. The period ended L.C.C. 1 — Ashbury 0. SmelHe, on an assist from L. Bates, opened the second period by scoring five minutes after the period began. The game seemed to be improving with both teams working harder. Coristine was through twice but each time shot wide, and several other chances for goal were lost through not passing or passing to the wrong wing. Two minutes after Ashbury ' s goal, Roughton scored for L.C.C The play was level, neither team having any noticeable advantage until ten minutes later L. Bates scored one of his typical solo goals THE ASHBURIAN 11 which brought the scoring to a close. L.C.C. sat back and played a defensive game for the rest of the period and the game ended 2—2. Line up — Ashbury : Goal : Gilmour ; Defence : L. Bates, T. Bates ; Forwards : Beard- more, Coristine, Smellie ; Subs: Craig, Fauquier, Thomas, Elwood. — D. M. W. ASHBURY vs. CLARKSON TECHNICAL COLLEGE Played at Potsdam, N.Y., Jan. 17th. Lost 3—1. The game was played in the Tech ' s open door rink and, although the weather was very cold, the game kept the interest of all, and the temperature was not noticed. Three twenty-minute periods were played. The puck see-sawed between the two goals, both tenders showing themselves at their best. ' Buzz " Williams and Lou Bates were playing brilliantly, and the crowd of several hundred were on their feet. The second period opened with several rushes by the Clarkson men, and after six minutes ' play, I. Houston shot from a face-off and put the first goal of the game past Gilmour. The game was resumed with renewed vigor and several penalties — P. Donald and Lou Bates being put off for heavy playing. This period was featured by the excellent goal tending of Gilmour, who from 21 shots only passed one. Fifty seconds after the start of the 3rd period Williams scored a great unassisted goal after passing the entire Ashbury team. This had the effect of putting Ashbury on their mettle, resulting in a lovely, unassisted goal from Fauquier, who skated through the whole team. A half minute later Williams on a pass from R. Houston scored the final goal of the game. Ashbury tried hard and although they were able to break through the Clarkson defence, Easton, the home goalie, was too good for them. Much praise is due to Gilmour for keeping the score as low as it was. For Clarkson, Easton and Williams stood out, while the whole Ashbury team showed up well against their older and more ex- perienced opponents. Line Ups : — Ashbury — Goal :Gilmour ; Defence : Craig, L. Bates ; Forwards : Beardmore, Smellie, Coristine ; Subs : Elwood, Fauquier, Thomas, T. Bates. Clarkson — Goal : Easton ; Defence : Burk, Guest ; Forwards : Oonald, WilHams, and I. Houston ; Subs : R. Houston, Levia and Reneke. — D. M. W. 12 THE ASHBURIAN ASHBURY vs. BISHOP ' S COLLEGE SCHOOL Played at the Forum, Mon., Feb. 24th. Draw 2 — 2. This game was played in three fifteen-minute periods. The first period was rather slow, both teams testing the goal keepers with long shots and waiting for a break. Ashbury opened the scoring when, with the Bishop ' s forwards down, L. Bates secured the puck, broke fast, and scored an unassisted goal. The second period was much faster. The Ashbury forwards indulged in good combination and went through a number of times, but erratic shooting marked what was otherwise good hockey. Bishop ' s played a more open game this period and Ashbury showed good back checking. L. Bates scored again for Ashbury and McLennan opened the Bishop ' s scoring. For the first ten minutes of the third period Ashbury pressed constantly but were pulled up on many occasions for skating ahead of the puck. With five minutes to go, an epidemic for rough play broke out amongst Ashbury and as a result the game was thrown away. Craig Bates n and Beardmore followed each other to the penalty bench in quick succession. Bishop ' s made the most of their opportunity and, with two minutes to go, Coristine skated down his right wing, circled the defence, and lifted the puck into the corner of the net. This ended the scoring. -J. R. P. ASHBURY vs. WESTMOUNT HIGH SCHOOL Played at the Auditorium, Saturday, March 1st. Ashbury 2. W.H.S. 0. The following is the account which appeared in the Montreal Standard on Saturday, March 1st: — " The Westmount High School hockey team, which swept through the Montreal School League to score ten victories in as many starts, were defeated for the first time this year in an interesting exhibition game at the Auditorium today by Ashbury College, of this city, by a score of 2-0. It was the first meeting of the two teams for two years. On the, occasion of their last meeting they tied here with a 3-3 score. It looked as if it was going to be another tie game until the final period, when the home team swept through to score their two goals. There was plenty of excitement in all three periods and both goal minders turned in splendid games. Gilmour in Ashbury College cage was in sensational form. He robbed the visitors of goals in all three periods. The home team was in on Markham on a number of occasions in the first two periods, but were unable to bulge the twine till the final session. Markham had little chance to save either of the two goals, as the scorers were right in on top of him. THE ASHBURIAN 13 The first goal of the game came after two minutes of play in the last period. Fauquier, smooth-working Ashbury forward, raced through the West- mount team to score from close in with a hard drive. Eleven minutes later Smellie clinched the game when he took Lou Bates ' pass to beat Markham from close in. The game was waxed with ten penalties, most of which were handed out by Referee Fred Bartlett, of Ottawa, because of heavy body-checking. Lou Bates, rugged Ashbury defence star, took his share of the penalties by being sent to the cooler on four occasions. Tommy Riddell, youthful little centre ice star of the Westihount squad, was the outstanding player on the team. He played a hard, clean game with no penalties chalked against him, and was a constant threat whenever he was on the ice. His shooting was of a high order and he pestered a number of difficult drives at Gilmour. Stewart also worked well on the front line, while Webb and J. Riddell did their share of the work on the defence. Beardmore, Smellie, and Fauquier, were the pick of the Ashbury forwards while Lou Bates used his weight with reckless abandon on the defence. The line-up: WestmounT: Goal, Markham; defence, Webb and J. Riddell; centre, T. Riddell; wings, Brydson and Scofield. Subs: MacNeil, Stewart, Morgan and McMartin. Ashbury: Goal, Gilmour; defence, L. Bates and T. Bates; centre. Beard- more; wings, Smellie and Fauquier. Subs: Thomas Ellwood, Coristine, Craig and Perodeau. Referee: Fred Bartlett, of Ottawa. HOCKEY CHARACTERS L. Bates. — Best defenceman the school has had for some years. Pretty puck carrier. The team depended too much on his goal-getting ability. R. Craig. — Defence.

P. 14 THE ASHBURIAN BOLSHEVIK HOCKEY LEAGUES At the beginning of the Hockey Season it was decided to in- augurate a Bolshevik League, which would be composed of those who were too big for the Intermediates and not good enough for the Seniors. The teams were picked amid much exc itement, and later each chose a new sweater. On the opening day numerous trades of players affected the personnel of some of the teams. How- ever all disputes were settled, and the teams were as follows : — A B. C, D. Champions Hammond Macorquodale Rowley H. Smellie Rowley L Brooke Ritchie (Capt.) Ross (Capt.) Schlemm Grant Monk GilHes H. McDougall Mathias Whitcher Fensom Henderson Gillies L Gilmour Gale (Capt.) Brown (Capt.) Cooke Mr. Benson Scott Mr. Pattisson Menzies Woods Sherwood L Robertson Sherwood L McOuat Gait L Robinson MacBrien L Spence Mr. Van der Angus Byl Lang On the afternoon of Tuesday, January 28th, the league swung into action with A vs. C. After the first few games it could be seen that three teams were evenly matched, but D team was firmly placed at the head of the league. In the first couple of games, Gilmour, the hard-working D centre, placed himself at the head of the scoring column, where he remained for the rest of the season. The games were played on every possible afternoon, and attracted large crowds. Half-way THE ASHBURIAN 15 through the season D was still leading, followed by B and C, while A, having taken longer to get going, was not considered in the running. The weather at this point became mild, so that the last few games had to be abandoned. It was decided to play the finals at the Auditorium. After a complicated play-off system had been finished D team headed the league, having beaten both B and C the two runners-up, in two very hard fought and even games. By this league much promising material was unearthed. Great credit is due to the referees, who made the games a pleasure, instead of a menace to life and limb as in former years. -B. R.

The ice was in bad condition owing to the recent thaw but a well contested game took place, leaving St. Alban ' s School victorious 3 — 1. The Intermediate team were rather smaller than their oppon- ents, which placed them at a disadvantage in view of the condition of the ice, but St. Alban ' s deserved to win if only for their superior combination. The score was 4 — 1 in their favour.

The 2nd Team was victorious 3—1, and the whole side played good hockey. Pero- deau (twice) and Fauquier II scored for Ashbury. The Intermediate game was more even and a rather scrambling contest ended in a draw, 1 — 1, Gillies I scoring for Ashbury. The following represented Ashbury : — 2nd VL — Goal : Robinson ; Defence : Perodeau, Stanfield ; For- wards : Fauquier II, Coristine II, Gait II ; Spares : Gilmour, Ritchie, Hart, Schlemm, Mathias, Symington.

The Seniors went by ' bus to Fairy Lake, skied slowly to Pink ' s Lake, and after a rest of three-quarters of an hour, started at three o ' clock to race back to Fairy Lake. The Juniors went to the Royal Ottawa Golf Club by ' bus, and raced from there to Fairy Lake. There was a cold wind blowing over the exposed places, but otherwise, the conditions were ideal. The Seniors were placed in the following order : Grant 22 min. 55 sees. ; Perodeau 23 35 ; Ritchie 23 38 ; MacCarthy I. 26 30 ; Scott 26 31 ; MacCarthy II. 28 23 ; Davidson I. 29 10 ; Fensom 29 15 ; McGuckin 29 58; Magor 34 21 ; Gait II., and Hart 36 40; Heubach 43 02. Grant is to be congratulated on returning such good time. THE ASHBURIAN 17 The order for the Junior race was: MacBrien II. 31 min. 0 sees.; Davidson II. 31 30; Vickers 31 35; Cowans I. and Fer- guson I. 33 mins. ; Yuile 34 mins. ; Clarke 38 30 ; Roberts and GilHes III. 39 30; Heuser 41 15 ; Ferguson 11. 45 min. ; Fauquier III 46 75 ; Eakins 50 25 ; Blair 55 min.

Gait II and Hart were equal in second place. The other competitors finished in the following order ; Mathias, Ritchie, Davidson I, Grant, Denison. The Junior competitors were placed as follows : MacBrien 11 Davidson II, Ferguson I, Clarke, Roberts-Allan and Yuile. On combining the points to decide the winner of the Ker Cup Grant and Ritchie tied for first place. The Junior Medal was won by M. MacBrien. -J. R. P. The 6th Annual Boxing Tournament was held on Friday, April 21st, in the presence of a large number of visitors. Minor injuries had prevented several of the senior boxers from entering the tourna- ment, but in spite of that, the bouts were, on the whole, evenly contested, one of the best being that between Fauquier II and Jacob. Ghent, a newcomer to boxing, after winning two preliminary rounds,. 18 THE ASHBURIAN put up a plucky fight against a more experienced boxer. Elwood displayed good foot-work and quick hitting. Grant knocked out Rowley I in the second round. Gilmour began with his usual rush tactics against Bates II, but finding that he received more punish- ment than he gave, changed his methods, and was very successful in keeping his opponent missing. Ross was awarded the cup for the best display of ring-craft. An innovation was an interesting exhibition of defensive Ju- Jitsu by Mr. Glossop, assisted by W. Robertson. Mr. Glossop kindly acted as referee, Mr. Anderson and Mr. Campbell as judges, and Mr. Pattisson as time-keeper. The results were : — Junior Lightweights — MacBrien II beat Ghent. Junior Heavyweights — Symington beat Powell I. Intermediate Lightweights — Fauquier II beat Jacob. Intermediate Middleweights — Elwood beat Ross. Intermediate Heavyweights — Ritchie beat Heubach. Senior Lightweights — Grant beat Rowley I. Senior Heavyweights — Bates II beat Gilmour. CROSS COUNTRY RACES The Senior and Junior Cross Country races were held on Satur- day, April 19th. The Seniors were started at 12 O ' clock from the Elm tree in front of the School and the Juniors at the same time from a mark on Mariposa. Both courses went down Cloverdale to the Rockcliffe Car stop ; along the old street car tracks to the end of the " speed-way " and then down the lane to the intersection of the road from the Montreal highway to the R.C.M.P. barracks. At this point the Juniors turned to the right up the road and the Seniors to the left. The Seniors continued through the barracks turned to the right and went out to the Rockcliffe Aerodrome ; across a corner of the Aerodrome property and to the right again. A long stretch followed back to the road which leads to the " Moun- ties " barracks where turning to the left they rejoined the Junior course made another right turn which led them down a grassy track to MacKay ' s Lake. On reaching this point they took the shortest course home. It is hoped that the course described above will be followed in future years so that the times may be compared, which has been impossible in the past owing to the continual changes. THE ASHBURIAN 19 The Senior race was well run by all those who finished within the necessary time to obtain a point. Brown quickly took the lead. Half-way he was still leading " with Perodeau running strongly fifty yards behind, another hundred yards and Sherwood II, Bates II, Magor, Wilson III, GilHes I, Sherwood I, Smellie, Rowley I, and Grant were running close to- gether and in this order. Brown held the lead until a few feet from the finish when Perodeau with a final burst passed him. Bates II passed Sherwood II in the last half but was repassed coming through the Sand Pit. Sherwood I moved up three places but Gilhes and Magor failed to hold their positions and were passed by Grant, Smellie and Rowley. It was an interesting and well contested race. Perodeau is to be heartily congratulated on winning the Ker Cup for finishing first — this is the second year he has held it — and the medal for the fastest scratch time. We also congratulate all those whose tenacity was rewarded by obtaining a point for their respective houses. The Junior race was a repetition of the Senior in that the first man home, Calder, also returned the best scratch time. The winner ran a very fine race, he started 3 minutes and 38 seconds after zero, in fact after everyone except Malloch. He settled down at once to a long easy stride which he maintained all the way covering the ground very quickly. He thoroughly deserved his success in winning both the Irvine Cup and the Medal. Both courses were longer than in previous years. -J. R. P. CROSS COUNTRY Order of Finish Senior Elapsed time 1. Perodeau 26 min. 32 sees. 2. Brown 27 28 3. Sherwood II. 28 44 4. Bates II. 26 45 5.

THE ASHBURIAN 21 CADET INSPECTION The Annual Inspection was held on the morning of Wednesday, May 7th. The inspecting officer was Colonel S. H. Hill, Director of Physical Training and Cadet Services, and he was accompanied by Captain M. Isbester, District Cadet Officer. The corps showed commendable steadiness on parade and marched well, and Colonel Hill congratulated them on their efficiency and said that he was glad to find that on the 25th anniversary of the foundation of the unit, it was maintaining the fine traditions of the school. Unfortunately a heavy shower of rain curtailed the exercises and the address of the inspecting officer and the announcement of the winners of the various cups had to be made in the gymnasium. The Woods Cup was won by No. 1 Platoon under L. Bates, and the Bassett Cup by No. 2 section of the Bantams under R. Davidson. The medal for the smartest bantam was awarded to J. Roberts-Allan. Gymnastic Exhibition. Fortunately the rain which had interrupted the Cadet Corps Inspection lasted for only about an hour, and for the Gymnastic Exhibition, held in the afternoon of the same day, there was ideal weather. The Connaught Cup was won by A. MacCarthy, who beat A. Henderson by half a point. The judges were Colonel Hill and Captain Isbester. After the announcement of this award, General MacBrien made a speech in which he pointed out the tremendous importance of physical fitness, which, he said, was so 22 THE ASHBURIAN well looked after at Ashbury. Prizes won for Cadet Corps Work, for Shooting, for Ski-ing, for Cross Country Run and for the Junior Library Checkers Tournament were then presented by Mrs. Rowley.

Mr. Pecksniff Bacon has given us an essay on gardens, which, even if it really contains no moral, gives the general impression that he was trying to " get over " a little " uplift. " Of my experiences you at least may feel safe that there is no sermon in them. Of course, gardens are no novelty to me and I know that the one never failing piece of flattery is to remark " how very early, " when the proud amateur gardener shows off his Spring flowers. I say, never failing, but it did fail once when I applied the formula to some onions which had precociously gone to seed. I have even given advice to my father when I knew that I had the excuse of study to counter any suggestion of practical assistance. I have, however, now a garden of my own, and, things are growing in it. I have decided that any artificiality is to be avoided and that such arduous tasks as digging and weeding may be neglected, and that the forces of Nature can be encouraged by sitting in a deck chair directing a hose hither and thither (which also keeps the dog, too big to be controlled otherwise, at bay) . I did, however, plant a five cent package of Nasturtiums from the famous Kresworths. For weeks I have tended them, giving them a nightly drink from a cream jug, as I have no watering-can. I was laughed to scorn ; I was told that the seeds were no good ; that I had planted too early and that the frost had killed the seedlings if they had ever started to grow. But they have come up ! Of course, base-minded people have suggested that they are weeds, and I have no means of contradicting them, as, although I was once a student of Botany and could lecture you on the distinguishing characteristics of the Scrophulariaceae, the Amaryllidaceae, and the Cucurbitaceae, on the floral formula of the Companulaceae, on the spectra of alpha- chlorophyll and beta-chlorophyll, and on the chemical formula of phloroglucinol, my knowledge has so far been of singularly little practical use, and unless I have patience to wait until the plants bloom, I will have to use Punch ' s famous method of distinguishing weeds from the rightful populace of a flower bed. " Pull them up; if they grow again, they are weeds. " " I CHANGE BUT CANNOT DIE " I wonder why everyone pauses and looks right through me? Am I beautiful or is my disguise so thin that one and all recognize my purpose — to extract the uttermost cent by my wiles? For truly I am clothed in new apparel every week. In the winter I am dressed in costly furs — in summer in the finest of silks — of hats and g-loves I have an abundance — of hose and lingerie an unlimited supply. THE ASHBURIAN 25 Rich and poor alike pause to admire my clothes, all men fear me, married men hate me and drag their fascinated wives past me, for they know that great is the temptation. My attendants are legion — my reputation of the best. I never go out at night, no one but these my attendants may touch me, nor am I as mortals who need to eat and drink. All desire to be clothed as richly as I — yet none could wear as many clothes as I — my clothes cost me nothing. In all weathers and in all seasons I am the archtemptress, and my owners make their profits out of my power to attract the Almighty Dollar yet I get no thanks for I am only a shop window. — C. W. T.

His family consists of three girls, and Eddie thinks he lives in the Toronto Ladies ' College. Allen Code is the leading golfer of Perth. During the war Allen was up in the air, but you can ' t get Allen " up in the air " with a game of golf. Wilf. Cory has turned out to be quite a Badminton player, and last winter he won the Church Championship. So you see he is a good player. Allen Beddoe is at present working on quite an order for the World Poultry Congress. The hens may scratch but Allen ' s brush never does. Erie Scott has passed through Ottawa several times lately. He is one man who can successfully combine business with pleasure. Lewis Carling is still carrying round his old nicknames of " Pop " and " Count. " Laurey Hart has lately married Miss MacLaren of Buckingham. She is the sister of Roy and Norman. That ' s the Old Ashbury Spirit of Co-operation ! Evan Gill made his first flight alone in an aeroplane the other day. He won ' t be alone long however, as he is soon to be married. He has given the daughter of the manager of the Bell Telephone in Ottawa a ring. THE ASHBURIAN 27 Edson Sherwood is a member of Greenshields in Ottawa, and in his spare moments he commands the irregular Navy. Geof. Birkett is a hquor inspector for the Liquor Control Board of Ontario. They say he has the right spirit for the work. i ■ Clive Holbrook is going up in Aviation, and he leaves the ground at the Ottawa Flying Club. Where he lands is another matter. He has been known to walk home. Jim Hennessy lives and works in Fort Coulonge, Que. Jim always did know how to live. Charlie O ' Connor is in the Oil Business, and has a new of¥ice in the Ottawa Electric Building. Pete Bates is soon to build a new home on Range Road, Ottawa. Old Boys ' Dinner Association Dinner a Great Success Many a pleasant school memory was revived — old friendships renewed — and a vigorous Alumni created when some sixty old Ashburians met, at the Mount Royal Hotel, Montreal, Saturday April 26th, for the first annual reunion and dinner of the Ashbury College Old Boys ' Association. The following officers and committee were elected for the ensu- ing year. President — Arthur Evans. Secretary — John Bogert. Treasurer — Haden Wallis. Committee — John Fauquier, Leo. D. Palmer, Ryland Daniels, Keith Davidson, Philip Scott, John Molson, Philip Wooll- combe, Gilbert Fauquier. The President of the Association, Mr. Arthur Evans, in pro- posing a toast to the school, outlined, in a few well chosen words, the aims of the newly formed Alumni and stated that an intensive drive for additional members was shortly to be undertaken, and that in view of so encouraging an attendance, it was hoped that next year well over one hundred and fifty members would be at the dinner, which will be an annual event. 28 THE ASHBURIAN Ashbury Old Boys, said the President, were scattered all over the world, and it is the intention to gradually gather them all into the Association so that the School may have behind it a powerful, widespread organization to foster its traditions and further its splendid work. Extra copies of the Ashburian containing an account of the Dinner are being sent to every Old Boy who was present. It is planned to build up a large Old Boys ' News Section in the School magazine, as this is one of the best media for keeping in touch. A list of Old Boys ' addresses who attended the dinner is pub- lished in this issue. There are still many names which the committee has not yet on file and any Old Boy knowing of any other Old Boy whose name and address has been omitted or incorrectly shown, is earnestly requested to send in corrections or additions as soon as possible to Haden Walhs, 3447 Drummond St., Montreal. W. v» feoYTve evo p cce£, or e|it co1-ow1 Ike Rev. Dr. G. P. Woollcombe, the headmaster, who replied to the toast to Ashbury, expressed his extreme pleasure at meeting so many old faces again. With many an interesting anecdote, he reviewed the history of Ashbury since its founding, in 1891. Few Canadian head- masters, remarked Dr. Woollcombe, were able to share with him the unique experience of personally directing the education, over such an unusually long period, of so many pupils as had been his privilege during the last 39 years. It was his great pleasure, said Dr. Wooll- combe, to realize that Ashbury can now take its place with the other prominent Canadian schools in having a large, active Old Boys ' association taking a keen interest in the welfare and progress of their old school. Dr. Woollcombe then proposed a one-minute silent toast to the many old Ashburians who had fallen in the war, after which the dinner concluded with musical selections, the signing of the Old Boys ' register and singing of " God Save the King.
