It is with very great pleasure that we present to our Readers
a Photograph of the new Chairman of the Board of Governors,
Major E. F. Newcombe. Wie are glad, also, to publish a brief
resume of his career.
Major Newcombe was at Ashbury from 1899 until 1906, when
the School was situated on XVellington Street and later on Argyle
Avenue. On leaving he went to McGill University where he be-
came Editor of the McGill Newspaper, at that time published
weekly. He was also very active in the University Debating Society
and in its reorganization to permit discussions of questions of con-
temporary political interest as is done in the Unions at Oxford and
He obtained his B.A. in 1911 and his B.C.L. in 1913.
During the winter and spring of 1913-14 he assisted in the
preparations of claims to be heard at Ottawa and Wlashington before
the Pecuniary Claims Arbitration appointed by the British, Canadian
and United States Governments to settle outstanding claims between
these countries which have arisen from time to time since the
After the outbreak of the Great XYar he joined Princess Patri-
cia's Canadian Light Infantry and served with them in France and
Belgium during the summer and autumn of 1915 and during part
of the time acted as Adjutant. He was wounded during the winter
of 1916 while the Regiment was in the line opposite Messines. After
being in hospital he returned to Canada on sick leave for three
months, but busied himself with helping in recruiting work. He
then returned to England and during the autumn of 1916 was at
Milford and Xliitley attached to the Staff of the 5th Canadian Divi-
2 F5112 Aahhurian
sion and the 5th Canadian Divisional Artillery. He then returned
to France and was attached to the General Staff of the South-Mid-
land Division and was afterwards with the Canadian Corps. At the
end of 1917 he cme back to Canada and was Staff Officer in con-
nection with the propaganda for the recruiting of British Subjects
in the United States. In 1918 he once more went overseas and
passed the Senior Staff Course at Cambridge. He received his
Captaincy in 1916 and his Majority in 1918.
Major Newcombe was junior Counsel for the Dominion in
the Grand Trunk Arbitration and, in 1929, was created a King's
Counsel by the Province of Quebec.
He was elected to the Ashbury Board of Governors in 1920.
It is of interest to note that his office is on the very site on XVelling-
ton Street where the School first had its being.
Such a career speaks for itself and we heartily congratulate
our Chairman on his excellent record. XVe can only add that
Ashbury considers itself extremely lucky to ha-ve such a man at the
Head of the Board of Governors, and we only hope that he will
continue to hold the position for many years to come. '
In no less degree do we offer a very warm welcome to Mrs.
Newcombe. She has already proved her very keen interest in the
School by her constant attendance at our Matches and other functions
and has evinced her kindly thoughts for us in many practical ways.
Peter Newcombe, of course, is at Ashbury and is doing very well
indeed, thank you.
Space now only permits us to wish

Dr. and Mrs. XVoollcombe were in Ottawa, Montreal and
Toronto for a lfew weeks in the Summer. Those of us who were
fortunate enough to see them, thought they were looking remark-
ably fit and well.
Dr. VVoollcombe has now been inducted into his new living
and he has asked us to say that any Ashburian lpast or presentj
will be very welcome at any time at The Vicarage. XVoodford Halse,
Rugby. The station is on the main line from Marylebone, London.
Here is a picture of their new home.
THE VICARAGE, WOODFORD HALSE.
Many will be interested to hear that Mr. R. Pattisson is
engaged to be married. His fiancee is Miss Frances Cowan, who
has been teaching at the Trafalgar Girls School in Montreal for
three years. Mr. Pattisson will be leaving Canada early in the New
Year for England, where he will go into residence at Avondale
School, Clifton, until Easter, at which time he is to be married and
then take over the Headmastership of the school. XVe heartily
congratulate him on his engagement and wish him all success and
much happiness in his new sphere of life. Mr. Pattisson was games
master at Ashbury for six years and for nearly five years has held
a similar post at Selwyn House. Montreal. Canada will miss you,
Patt.! We are sure that all Ashburians will always be very wel-
come at Avondale.

On Saturday evening, Oct. 27th, we were honoured by a visit
from Mr. Lawrence J. Burpee, F.R.G.S., F.R.S.C., the well-known
Historian, and Editor of the Canadian Geographical Journal, and
author of many books on the History of Canada. He delighted
us with an Illustrated Lecture on "The Discovery of Canada",
which was extremely interesting as well as educational. We are
greatly indebted to Mr. Burpee for his kindness in coming to us,
and we express our sincere thanks to him and also to Mr. Dennison,
who kindly came along and "worked" the Movie Machine. Mr.
Burpee also presented the History Room with a copy o'f his book,
"The Discovery of Canada", for which we are very grateful.
By coincidence, we noticed in the "Citizen" on the same date
that Surveys from the Air are plotting out Canada's 3,600,000
square miles, of which about 75 per cent has never been accurately
mapped. Fully half of this great area has never been even viewed
by white men.
Up to the end of 1924 the area mapped was 240,000 square
miles. Then aerial mapping began and by the end of 1934 more
than 480,000 square miles will have been surveyed from above. In
other words twice as much country has been mapped in 10 years
from the air as in 100 years by surveyors on land.
The maps are made from photographs taken from planes.
This summer the four detachments in the operations with eight
planes took 40,000 picutres. It is the greatest undertaking of its
kind in the world.
XVe congratulate Jay Ronalds on his many successes in the
Golfing World, during the Summer Holidays. He seems to have
Hmopped-up" most of the events for which he entered. He capped
a fine season by winning the Quebec Provincial Junior Tournament
with a gross score of 78. He also gave Jack Cameron, an experi-
enced Tournament Player, a spirited battle in the first round of the
Canadian Amateur Championship. Nor must we omit to mention
and congratulate his young brother Lee, also at Ashbury. He was
the youngest competitor in the Junior Provincial Match, played at
Elm Ridge on the Lake Shore of Montreal and we read in the
"Canadian Golfer" that his knowledge of the game and the rules
is nothing short of amazing! XVe shall doubtless see great things
from them in the future and we heartily wish them "birdies" and
The school contributed 311.13 to the Red Cross Fundg and
51,517.91 to the Ottawa Federated Charities.
In about four or five year's time, it is hoped there will be a
thick hedge. Cdetails of which will be found belowj. bordering the
Gllir Aalphltrian 5
side of the grounds fwhere now stands a somewhat unsightly
wooden fencej and on the side of the road leading from Maple
Lane to the back entrance of the school. The ground is now being
prepared and seeds will be put in as soon as conditions permit. XYe
consider that much credit is due to the instigator of this undertak-
ing, and wish the experiment all success.
Caragana arborescens tSiberian Pea Treej. The Siberian Pea
Tree is, pehaps, the best tall deciduous hedge for the colder parts
of Canada. It resists both drought and extreme cold very well.
It is a fairly rapid grower and its leaves, which come out early, are
of an attractive shade of green. As it makes practically all its
growth early in the season, one pruning each year is sufficient.
This shrub-like tree will reach a height of 13 feet if desired.
It is good news to know that Miss Lewis, who underwent a
serious operation on the opening day of this term, is now quite
fit and well againg she will be back again with us next term, if all
continues satisfactorily. We take this opportunity of cordially
thanking Miss Murphy, who has so capably filled the breach to the
benefit and gratitude of all concerned.
The Upper Sixth have enjoyed the following outings to places
of educational interest this term :-The first trip was made to the
Ottawa Gas Plant on Leyes Avenue. Here they saw the manu-
facture of illuminating gas and coke. The second trip was to the
Metallurgical Research Branch on Booth Street, where they saw
the Flotation Process and other methods of Ore concentration. A
final outing was made to the Canada Cement Co., near Hull, where
was seen how Portland Cement is manufactured right from the
quarry to the actual product.
We have to thank Edward Fauquier for lending and
operating his 16mm projector. A film depicting the extraction of
Bromine from sea-water was shown.
To all concerned and especially to Mr. Johnson, who went to
much trouble in arranging these visits, we extend our very grate-
VVe have much pleasure in stating that the Annual Shakes-
pearean Play will take place on Saturday, March 16th, at the Little
Theatre. The Production will again be in the very capable hands
of Mr. VV. H. Brodie, while Mr. B. K. T. Howis will look after the
Secretarial and Business arrangements. Please make a note of
the date and may we 'further ask for your very kind patronage and
Two School Concerts have been arranged, the first to take
place on Tuesday, December 18th and the second about the middle
6 Elie Aslihurian
of next term. These will be held in the School Gymnasium and
Visitors will be very cordially welcomed.
XVe hear that Mr. Tanner, our Musical Director, has already
begun work on the production of Brahm's "Requiem", to be per-
formed sometime in March. Mr. W. johnson is singing with
the Basses in the chorus work.
On Friday, Oct. 26th, the School enjoyed the privilege and
pleasure of a visit from Major E. F. Newcombe, the Chairman of
the Board of Governors. Proceedings opened with a brief address
from the Headmaster, who spoke feelingly and fittingly on the
resignation of Mr. G. E. Fauquier from the Chairmanship, owing
to failing health. Mr. Fauquier, he said, had been connected with
Ashbury since 1915 and during that time had always evinced the
keenest interest in the School, not only in thought, but in kindly
actions and the friendliest cooperation. He further stated that all
his sons had passed through the school, two of whom had held
the position of Head Pre'fect. The Board of Governors, however,
had made a singularly fortunate and happy choice in appointing
Major Newcombe to fill the vacancy.
Major Newcombe then addressed the School and began by
stating that Ashbury had been enrolled on the list of Canadian
Schools with Mr. VVright as a Member of the Headmaster's Con-
He then stressed Character as the keynote of training and said
that Cheerfulness should be shown under all conditions. He
advised us to take pride in ourselves and in our School and to be
loyal to our friends. He concluded on a very happy note by asking
the Headmaster to give us an extra day's holiday following on the
usual half-term exeat. Mr. XVright had much pleasure in granting
this, and the proceedings terminated with "Three Cheers" for
Major Newcombe, led by M. MacBrien, the Head Prefect.
The School was granted a whole holiday on Thursday, Nov.
29th, on the occasion of the XVedding of Princess Marina of Greece
and Prince George, youngest son of His Majesty the King.
On the occasion of the Kinvfs llirthclav on une Srcl, the Morn-
b . .
ing Service in Chapel opened with the singing of the National
XYe are very pleased to welcome hack the Yen. Archrleacrm
Snowdon, who is again conducting our Sunday Services in Chapel.
Many new chants and Hymn tunes have lmeen learnefl this term
and we thank Mr. IiClXVZ1I'flS for the trouble he has taken in this
matter. The singing generally has been good and hearty in man-
ner. lVe unclerstancl that Carols will be sung towards Christmas
time, and we shall look forward to hearing them.

been at McGill for eight years. To him we offer our heartiest con-
gratulations on his success.
Blair Gilmour has again had a season with the Ottawa Rough
Riders, while we read in the "Citizen" that Bill MacBrien led the
R.M.C. Cadets to victory over the University of Ottawa in their
local match. Hearty congratulations to them both.

An Old Ashburian, who was at the School when on XVelling-
ton Street-we refer to Major DI. M. Tupper-was in command of
the R.C.M.P. on their recent appearance at the National Horse
Show, in New York. Major Tupper was to be seen Cand heardj
at the "Regent Theatre" in the "News" film, at the head of the
R.C.M.P. Contingent, parading through New York. 1Ve under-
stand that they "got their audience" to a man, woman and child!

As is customary, the Annual Prize Distribution took place
immediately after the Sports on June 13th. Parents and Friends
assembled in the Gymnasium. Those on the platform were Senator
Cairine Wilson and Mr. Norman Wilson, Mrs. W1 H. Rowley,
Major and Mrs. E. F. Newcombe, Mr. and Mrs. M. R. Ferguson,
Mr. H. S. Southam, the Headmaster and Mrs. H. F. VVright and
Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Brodie.
The prizes for School work were kindly presented by Senator
XVilson, while those for the various Sports Events were presented
by Mrs. Newcombe, Mrs. Ferguson and Mrs. Rowley respectively.
After a short address by Major Newcombe, who bade the
visitors welcome and paid tribute to Mr. G. E. Fauquier and further
made some amusing remarks about Conservatives and Liberals, the
Headmaster presented his Annual Report. He regretted that Dr.
XVoollcombe had found that he was unable to belpresent and went
on to say that the late Headmaster had left behind him a School
well-known throughout Canada of the highest standing and one
with a great reputation. He then spoke of the School's successes in
the Matriculation Examinations: in the Senior results last year
there were ten papers in which first class marks were obtained, in
the Junior, eleven, and in the McGill, fourteen, of whom five had
obtained over ninety per cent.
Continuing, he stated that an attempt had been made to give
a little more individual attention to boys to enable them to progress
according to their individual capacity. and of the effort to en-
courage each boy to speak in public-with excellent results.
Mr. Dawes, one of the Governors, had most kindly offered
prize for speech-making to be competed for by each Form. while in
the future, Mr. MacMasters, another Governor of the School. has
most generously made it possible for the Headmaster to continue to
award Prizes at the annual Prize distribution in the same sphere of
XYork. XYe also have to thank Mr. Rhodes. son of the Minister of
Finance, who has very kindly promised to present a Trophy for
the purpose of encouraging the speakers in the Debating Society.
To each of these gentlemen we extend our very grateful thanks for
The Headmaster then called upon G. Hamilton Southam and
XVilliam Hadley to make their valedictory Speeches in English and
French respectively. Each boy spoke excellently and were re-
warded with much applause from the visitors and boys.

Un Oct. 14th, the senior members of the Ashbury Cadet Corps
took part in a tactical scheme carried out by the Governor-General's
Foot Guards, to whom the Ashbury Cadets have been attached
since 1905. It was the first time Ashbury had taken part in any
of the activities of this regiment.
The Cadets fell in first at the Drill Hall, and from there they
motored out in cars and buses to where the "attack" was going to
take place: this was over an area extending from Ironsides to Hull.
Each boy was assigned to an officer of the regiment, as follows:-
Coy. Leader Cooke was attached to Major E. Lisle.
Pl. Leader Denison was attached to Lieut. G. Patrick.
Pl. Leader Ferguson was attached to 2nd Lieut. C. Gill.
Sgt. Baskerville was attached to Lieut. F. Hogan.
Corp. Barends was attached to 2nd Lieut. P. Hannaford.
Corp. Lyman was attached to Lieut. B. Mitchell.
Cadet Courtney was attached to Major M. F. Grigg.
Cadet NVilson was attached to Major XV. G. XVurtele.
Cadet Reynolds was attached to Major A. Green.
were attached to The Signalling Sec-
.. Eiiflffon tion commanded by Lieuzi. A. P. Wil-
cc Wurtele l1E1I'I'lS.
Before lunch Major Lisle outlined to the Platoon Leaders the
position of the enemy, and where their machine-guns were placed.
Each Platoon Leader was given a certain task, Lieutenant. Gill
and Lieut. Hogan were to attack, while Lieut. Mitchell and Lieut.
Hanna'ford were to keep their platoons in reserve. The scheme
was "Company in Attack" by A Coy., which formed part of the
Advanced Guard against an enemy force holding a bridgehead in
and around Hull. Such details as the Starting Line and Zero Hour
having been given, the men fell out for lunch, which consisted of
hot stew and coffee.
After lunch the battle began, and it was not long before the
attacking Platoon Leaders were in difficulties, and reserves had to
be sent to the rescue. The use of blank ammunition, flares and im-
provised trench mortars added greatly to the effectiveness of the
scheme. Even a motor-cycle engine was made to represent a
machine-gun in action. After hours of intense work by the troop,
it was announced by the referees that the attacking forces had won
the battle. The Cease Fire sounded, and Major H. L. N. Salmon,
Uhr Aulihurian I3
NLC.. the inspecting officer, addressed the troops, praising them on
their excellent showing, and outlining to them the most important
parts of the scheme.
Lieut. Col. Ci. G. Chrysler, M.C., A.D.C., Officer Commanding
the Foot Guards, who is an Old Ashburian, congratulated the regi-
ment, and also the Ashbury Cadets, who acted as "runners"
throughout the attack.
VVe take the opportunity of thanking Major XY. li. XYurtele
for so kindly arranging that we could take part in this interesting
and instructive military manoeuvre. It was an excellent oppor-
tunity to learn at "first hand" how an attack is planned and carried
out: and we hope that this is not to be the last time that our
services will be required.

The season was quite a successful one and at one time it
seemed as if we might win the Ottawa Yalley Cricket Council Cup.
but the crucialgame against Defence was lost by a small margin
and we failed to repeat our success of 1929. We beat Lower Can-
ada College fairly easily but had to bow to Bishop's College School.
in spite of a century by Hyman, the first ever scored for Ashbury
in a school game. The Old Boys' game was ruined by the weather
as not a ball could be bowled.
CRICKET CHARACTERS 1934
T. XY. Beauclerk. Captain. -lth year on the team. An untiring cap-
tain who always gave of his best. A natural forcing batsman
who was handicapped by faulty footwork. Inclined to be
rather careless. Developed considerably as a lob bowler with
a facility for getting wickets when they were wanted. Safe
catch and good in the field, though inclined at times to be too
strong with his returns.
G. D. Stanfield, Vice-Captain. 3rd year on the team. A stubborn
batsman who was hard to dislodge, but possessed of consider-
able hitting powers. A stiffness in the shoulders prevented a
really straight swing. Safe catch and a good field.
A. Powell. Znd year on the team. Possessed an excellent eye and
was a fairly consistent scorer, but will never develop as he
should until he learns to use his feet. A sound medium paced
bowler who could always be relied upon to keep a length. A
good field and a safe catch.
G. Hyman. 3rd year on the team. XYas the most prolific scorer
on the side. Has some excellent off shots, which he has the
gift of timing well and was always ready to attack the bowl-
ing. If he could remember not to draw away from balls on
the leg Stump he should develop into a highly useful batsman.
Sound field and steady change bowler.
H. A. Cowans. 2nd year on the team. iYas the soundest bat in
the side. He developed into a most dependable player by sheer
hard work. Had a good off drive and pulled anything short
of a length with accuracy and power. An excellent slip fields-
man. Should pay attention to his bowling.
J. B. Kirkpatrick. 2nd year on the team. A much improved
medium paced bowler who always kept a length. XYas dogged
18 Ellie Aahhuriun
by bad luck all through the season, but was one of the main-
stays of the attack. lYas a little disappointing as a batsman as
he failed to make use of his height and reach.
M. D. MacBrien. lst year on the team. With no experience at the
beginning of the season he steadily developed into quite a
sound wicket keeper. As a batsman he lacks scoring strokes
at present but has a sound defence and should improve con-
siderably next year.
E. R. Allen. 2nd year on the team. Improved in his timing from
last year and made runs on several occasions. Needs a little
more discretion in picking out the right ball to hit. A good
XV. Hurd. lst year on the team. Shows promise as a batsman and
has a good straight drive. Rather inclined to pull a length ball
on his leg stump. A change bowler who should be useful next
year. Sound in the field.
L. Snelling. lst year on the team. A young batsman who shows a
decided aptitude for the game. At present he cannot control
his body sufficiently and does not swing correctly. Rather
clumsy with his foot work, but if he takes pains should im-
prove greatly next year. A good catch and an intelligent field.
E. R. NVilson. lst year on the team. A slow bowler with a decep-
tive flight, who varied his pace. XVas perhaps not utilised as
much as he might have been. A good catch.

ASHBURY vs. BISHOP'S COLLEGE SCHOOL
Played on the McGill Campus. May 25th.
Bishops won the toss and batted first. They were obviously a
good batting side and began very steadily. Some really consistent
bowling backed up by excellent work in the field reaped its reward
as when the lunch interval came they had lost seven wickets for
78. Some sound batting by VVilson improved matters 'for Bishops
when the game was resumed and the total reached 129. Kirkpat-
rick and Powell both bowled with great steadiness and the fielding
lVhen Ashbury went to the wicket they collapsed badly before
some excellent slow bowling by XVilson and were all out for 46.
XVilson bowled very intelligently and came out with the excellent
Figures of 9 for 23. Ashbury followed on and quickly lost two-
wickets. Then Hyman and Powell made an excellent stand and,
scoring at a very fast pace, added 92 for the third wicket before
the latter was bowled. Hyman went on hitting all round the wicket
and when the closure was applied with six wickets down for 161,
he had succeeded in reaching his century. His best hits were 18
fours. ln the time that was left Bishops scored 54 without loss.

ASI-IBURY vs. LOXVER CANADA CQLLEGE
Played in Montreal on May 26th.
Ashbury won the toss and batted first. Beauclerk and Hyman
gave them a good start, scoring 33 for the first wicket. Cowans
joined Hyman and a great stand followed, 65 being added for this
wicket. Hyman hit with great freedom all round the wicket and
when he was caught off a skier had made 66, which included 9 fours.
Cowans batted 'well but the only other st-and of note was between
Kirkpatrick and Allen who put on 20 for the 9th wicket. Allen hit
a ball out of the ground for 6. The total reached 139, not so large
a score as at one time seemed probable.
Lower Canada went in and collapsed badly. Beauclerk bowled
his lobs with great effect and seemed to paralyse the batsmen. He
was backed up by some excellent work in the field, and the whole
side was out for 48 Beauclerk secured 7 wickets for 12. Lower

Canada followed on and once again were dismissed cheaply, the

Un the morning of .lune lst, the Intermediate Team travelled
to Montreal to play a Match v. Selwyn House. This took place on
the McGill Campus in the afternoon and should go down in school
History as Dunning's Match. Uur opponents won the toss and
elected to bat. Allan bowled very well and took seven wickets:
their side was dismissed for 46 runs, Barclay being top scorer with
16 runs to his credit. lVe then went in and four wickets fell for
30: then, however, Dunning came in and after being let off in the
slips, proceeded to knock the bowling to all parts of the field, even-
tually scoring 111. not out, in less than an hour. XYe congratulate
him on his powerful hitting. The innings came to an end with the
score at 158. Selwyn House then went in again and were disposed
of for 45. Ashbury thus winning the Match by an Innings and 67
runs. XVe congratulate Selwyn House on a plucky display against
a somewhat bigger team. Had Dunning's catch in the slips been
held. there would have been a very different story to tell.
The following morning the Team went out to the Lower Can-
ada College Cricket Grounds to play a Match v. the School Inter-
mediate Eleven. They won the toss and batted first. making the
rather formidable total of 148, for which they had to thank Murray
1345 and Brooks GSI.. Ronalds and Snelling were our best bowlers
and the fielding was very good on the whole. Burrows deserves
special credit for a very hot catch made at close mid-on. Mac-
Donald also held a good one. On going to bat, we could only reply
with a total of 86, of which MacDonald made 29 and Ronalds 30.
Reynolds, with 10 runs was our next best scorer. Murray, who in-
cidentally plays for their first Eleven. bowled very effectively.
taking 6 wickets. It is perhaps worth mentioning that they tried
six bowlers in all. It was a thoroughly pleasant game from start
to finish and the two day's outing was very much enjoyed by all.
The team was as follows :-Snelling tCaptain5, MacDonald,
Ronalds. Allan, Ghent. Burrows, Reynolds. Dunning, Brown,
The Intermediates practised and played keenly throughout the
all too short season and it was a very real pleasure to coach them.
There is much promising material for next year and we heartily
wish them all success in their Cricket career.

XVe were faced this season with a problem that arises from
time to time. namely that of rebuilding the side almost entirely.
Wie had lost twelve of last year's side and the team was in con-
sequence very inexperienced and lost its First two or three games
somewhat easily. XVith match experience it improved considerably
and succeeded in beating Bishops College School at Lennoxville
on a snow covered ground. The return game at Ashbury was lost
by a single point. Perhaps the most noticeable improvement dur-
ing the season was in the tackling.
The following were awarded their colours:-

ASHBURY vs. LOWER CANADA COLLEGE
Played in Montreal on October 6th,
There was no score in the first period, but, a'fter a good start,
Ashbury were generally on the defensive, mainly owing to the ex-
cellent forward passing of our opponents.
Lower Canada showed better team work in the 2nd and 3rd
periods and quickly ran up 24 points by good football.
The last quarter was very even as the only score was a rouge
by Lower Canada, leaving them victorious 25 - O.

Ashbury went ahead in the first quarter scoring two rouges on
kicks by Dunning.
In the second period Bishops succeeded in getting a point back
on a rouge but there was not much between the teams.
The third period was scoreless and was quite exciting as first
one team and then the other looked dangerous.
Ashbury went further ahead early on in the last quarter
through another kick by Dunning but Bishops replied in the same
manner. Five minutes before the end Ashbury penned Bishops in
their own quarters and Dunning put them further ahead by a kick

ASHBURY vs. BISHOP'S COLLEGE SCHOOL
Played at Ashbury on October 27th.
This was an excellent game and the result was in doubt up till
the last minute. Ashbury scored a rouge early in the game but
Bishops tied the score before the end of the period.
In the second period Bishops kicked two more points and were
leading 3 - 1 at half time.
Early in the third quarter a costly fumble on the goal line gave
Bishops a touch and they were now leading 9-1. Hurd cleverly
returned a kick over the goal line to reduce the deficit and then
Ashbury swept up the field. and after some close work on the line
Davidson forced himself over for a touch which Dunning converted.
The period ended with Bishops leading 9 - 8.
Ashbury had a chance to kick the tying ppint early in the last
quarter but tried for a field goal instead: Bishops then went down
the field and kicked another point. Ashbury got the point back a
few minutes later but were unable to score again and Bishops were
left winners. 10 - 9.

ASHBURY vs. THE OLD BOYS
Played at Ashbury on November 3rd.
This was a most enjoyable game and some open football was
seen. A feature of the game was Beauclerk's forward passing for
the Old Boys which was responsible for three out of four touches.
Cooke and Denison scored the touches for the School both of which
were converted by Dunning. Tyrer threw some good forward
passes during the game which left the Old Boys winners 22 - 13.

As we look around us to-day, we find ourselves living in a
world well-stocked with paradoxes, those conditions and events
which contradict themselves from every angle. And were we to
take those examples as presented by science. politics. society and
so on and to examine each in every detail, I venture to predict that
we would find none so marked as that of professor Christianity and
its attitude to the problem of peace. And so in as few words as
possible, I propose to analyse this maze of contradictions and leave
the reader to draw his own conclusions.
Let us first deal with a problem which has stood as a mighty
challenge to the world for many centuries and on whose reefs and
shoals many a nation' and civilization has perished. Here I refer
to that cancerous growth which goes under the name of national-
ism. Greece, Rome, Carthage, Egypt all in their day attempted to
build and conserve empires whose sole basis was the attainment
and maintenance of superiority over other peoples. And where are
they to-day? Slowly sinking into the quagmire of oblivion and
only kept from passing completely out of sight by history which
maintains them as dreadful examples of man's ignorant stupidity.
But are we profiting by their mistakes? I think not. To-day
we have on one hand Germany with her National Socialism. on
another Italy and her Fascism, here France and her insolent mili-
tarism, there Japan and her dreams of empire. Even our own
British Empire is not free from poisonous touch. And practically
all of these, supposedly Christian nations! VVhat is to be the out-
come? Christiantiy.is on trial for its life and unless she asserts
herself and comes forth in her true colours of world brotherhood
and love, she is doomed. Christianity and nationalism do not go
together any more than peace and nationalism and this civilization
stands precariously near to the brink of destruction unless this
mighty monster canbe wiped out for all time.
Now shall we turn to another thing which means so much to
the maintenance of peace and yet can be used so readily to foment
hatred? lI speak now of patriotism, a word which seems to have
been very badly misconstrued in our day and generation. On
consulting a dictionary. I find a patriot defined as 'one who loves
his country and zealously guards its welfare'. I-Iow many of these
so-called "patriots", who urged our young men and even boys not
so many years ago to hate and kill, could measure up to that de-
finition. Could a person love his country and yet send the flower
of its manhood and the strength of its future generation to death?
Is it guarding the welfare of a country to hurl it uselessly into
debt and jeopardize its very structure for years to come? No. I
30 Flin' Aahhuriun
say, a thousand times, no! And the sooner people come to realize
that the essence of patriotism is love and not hate and that the
"patriotism" which calls lfor war is all wrong, the sooner will this
world take a decisive step in the direction of real and lasting peace.
Turning from the question of patriotism, I come to my final
point and I believe that it is one which vitally involves every true
and loyal Canadianf That is our attitude toward military demon-
strations and the manner in which they affect the younger genera-
tion. How many of us have ever watched a military parade going
by or been present at a military tattoo or something of that sort
and noted the number of young children in the eager throng. And
how they thrill to the strains of martial music and the colourful
uniforms and long for the day when they too may join the ranks
of these imaginary heroes. As one who has not long passed beyond
this stage, I speak with the voice of authority. But are we going
to allow this to continue and thereby nourish the spirit which
cannot long be confined within the bounds of peace? We, as 'true
Christians, must rise in our wrath and fight this rising tide of
militarism. Military demonstrations must be confined where the
young are not subject to their degrading influence. And when.
on that anniversary, we remember the dead, let it be a day not of
glorification, but of mourning for those who, in their unfailing yet
pitifully misplaced faith, gave their lives for what they believe to
be right. '
And so I come to the end of this article aware of the fact that
I have but touched briefly on a subject about which so much could
be said and yet hoping that perhaps someone, .through the medium
of these thoughts, may be led to a greater understanding of this
mighty problem. Christ himself said "Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they shall be called the children of God". It is a challenge to
every true Christian. Will you accept it?

There is only one way to cross the Atlantic. No, not by the
"Queen Mary"-by freighter! If you want about two weeks of
complete rest, freedom and entertainment, step aboard a 3,000 ton
boat such as the "SS, Melmore Head". In company with two
friends, I did so this summer and can certainly recommend it
heartily. After several delays due to the interminable process of
loading the ship with Hour, lumber, newsprint and cornliakes, we
sailed from Montreal on May 14th, and steamed down the River
at our maximum speed of nine knots!
The first port of call on our European trip was Three Rivers.
Here the "lNIelmore" took on several hundred tons more of news-
print. so we decided to go and see the sights. XVe found that the
town could offer us two things, The International Paper Company's
mill and Constance Bennett in "La Moulin Rougenz we saw them
both. Then began the jaunt to the ocean, which was quite un-
eventful except for the fact that we seemed to be continually
changing our course to avoid imminent ice-fields, none of which
we ever saw. XYe found the routine on board much to our
liking: they provided us with five meals a day, gave us access to all
parts of the boat from the crow's nest to the coal-hole, allowed us
to paint the boat whenever we wished, and generally attended to
our every want. The only thing We found lafter one of us had
done ith, that we were not allowed to do, was to take the Captairfs
bath, after he had spent a considerable time pumping hot steam
into it. Our activities consisted of deck-tennis on the hatch, which
came to an abrupt end after we had thrown five quoits overboard:
"XVhooping on the poop", which seemed to consist of reciting odes
or singing songs to the rude imperious surge: and conversing with
the crew who were all Irish-very Irish. XVe had perfect weather
all the way across and were loath to disembark when we reached
Dublin on May 28th.
XYe had been hoping for a typical Free State welcome and we
got one. It appeared that there was a dock labourers' strike in
progress, and the strikers were preventing food supplies from
reaching other boats in the harbour. However, we made our get-
away under the protection of the Captain, receiving nothing worse
than a converted mass of "dirty looks" from the picketers. WVC
then toured Dublin for a day. It has many places of great his-
torical interest but secms rather to have fallen on evil days, and it
is infinitely more gloomy and less prosperous looking than Belfast,
which we saw later.
Wfe crossed to Liverpool and there invested in a i20 H9295

sumption rivalled the "petrol" consumption: her dickey, frumble

hill-climbing was perfect anathema to her: in fact, on three oc-
casions, notably in Devon. she just refused to go up certain hills
for no apparent reason. Nevertheless she carried us for nearly
4,000 miles. so let us speak well of the dead-as I am sure she must
Chester, which used to crop up in Latin disguised as "Castra".
was the first place in which we really spent some time. It is one
of the few complete walled cities in England and has changed very
little during the centuries. Anything modern in Chester just simply
looks out of place. The sidewalks are in some cases six feet above
the level of the street and are like arcades. open on one side. VVe
did a lot of pottering about in "quaint" places here.
A description of most of the places we went through must be
left out, but especial mention must be made of Stratford-upon-
Avon. XYe did all the conventional sights, but thev were all
eclipsed by the new Shakespeare Memorial Theatre, which, and I
cannot put it too strongly, does not look like a "jam-factory". It
is beautiful in design. and its greatest triumph is, that despite its
modern lines, it blends in perfectly with its picturesque surround-
ings, simply because it has been built of red brick, which people
do not seem able to see is the chief characteristic of the town's
architecture. VVe were fortunate enough to be staying with the
Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Theatre. and he con-
ducted us over the entire theatre and stage, which are the last word
in technical perfection. The theatre holds 1500, is very plain in
design, as a theatre should be, and has a combined sinking and
sliding stage, which enables the production of very elaborate
scenery. XVe saw the entire Repertoire of the Company, a dramatic
treat about which I could write a book. Incidentally we were
fellow-guests at Stratford with the Marquess of Reading and the
Principal of Birmingham University. both of whom were very
interested in education in Canada: we put in a good word for
Oxford and Cambridge are magnificent. The main impression
I received of the former was that of an imposing array of spires.
towers and quadrangles. The University is more scattered than I
had expected, but this adds to its charm: the famous High Street.
with its amazing intermingling of colleges, shops. chapels. resi-
dences and gardens, is an unforgettable sight. XVe were at Oxford
during exam. time and were much amazed to see the compulsory
dress for this period, consisting of short black gowns with white
bow-ties. W'e felt rather out of it, so we all donned our brilliant red
McGill blazers: the contrast was extraordinary! Cambridge is
more spacious, its gardens are more attractive and the whole uni-
versity has a more "campus-like" atmosphere, helped tremendously

by the beautiful river Cam, which is far more a part of the colleges
than is the Thames at Oxford. Kings College Chapel is Cam-
bridge's "piece de resistance," while, though few tourists see it,
the Festival Theatre is one of the town's show places. It is a
beautiful reproduction of an Elizabethan theatre.
London is so intriguing that the minimum time a visitor should
give to it is six months : unfortunately, we had to do it in three weeks'
XVe "sightsaw" furiously for one week and then tried to live as the
Londoners live. As we discovered when our trip was over, we had
seen thirty-seven plays while away. and we saw most of them in
London. The outstanding plays to my mind were: "The Mait-
lands", with John Cielgud. a brilliant actor. in the lead: "Sixteen"
with Owen Nares and Antoinette Cellier: "Reunion in Vienna",
starring Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontane: "Conversation Piece",
Noel Coward's extravaganza, in which Yvonne Printemps was
magnificent: and of course "Ten Minute Alibi", London's longest
run. I am considered a literate, but I still think Elizabeth Bergner
is much over-rated. It was an excellent season. XVe were also able
to see Leslie Banks. Gwen Frangcon-Davies, Edmund Gwenn, Sey-
mour Hicks and many others.
One day we went out to Shepherd's Bush and Cby means of
pulll, saw over the Gaumont-British Film Studios. These are
housed in an enormous building which was humming with activity.
XVe saw shots for three feature pictures and numerous ones for
comedies. It is beyond me how people can concentrate sufficiently
to act in a place which is filled from ceiling to floor with flood-
lamps, cables sound reproducing systems, producing directors, art
directors, music-directors, supers, technicians, properties, stage
effects, and. of course, the set. The "Swiss Scenery" I saw painted
on a sort of two by four canvas will make me skeptical in the future
of even the most convincing panoramas. NVe saw Evelyn Laye,
Frank Vosper, Leslie Banks, and many other well-known stars at
The Aldershot Tattoo was another event which we decided to
see. It is certainly the most complete and perfectly organized
spectacle I have ever seen. It would be hard to find a more im-
pressive sight, provided it is looked at, not as a piece of patriotic
propaganda. but as a marvellous display of precision and alertness.
On our way north to Scotland we saw three of the Public
Schools, Eton, Rugby and Uppingham. The first was probably the
most interesting, but I do not think that many Ashburians would
care to be there. It was one of the few places in England where
I felt a building's age to be depressing. Uppingham, on the other
hand, has very line buildings, some of them comparatively new,
and also a very sound general system. The Headmaster gave us
an outline of the routine at the school which sounded very attractive.

Rugby is much more like a university in its layout and way of doing
things. In connection with my visit to Rugby I had a most stren-
uous time. I had been told by the Editor of a certain well-known
Canadian school magazine that Dr. XVoollcombe lived at XVood-
ford Halse near Rugby: so I thought I would go to Rugby, which
I knew and then find my way from there. It turned out that XVoocf-
ford was fourteen miles away, more or less in the direction from
which I had come. Wie started off again and then one of my friends
tried to make the car take an impossible short-cut with the result
that the undercarriage of the car got stuck in the soil and would
not budge. XVith the help of a passing yokel we eventually got
the car going after nearly an hour's strenuous heaving in one of
the hottest suns I have ever experienced. XVhen we got to our
destination we found that Dr. XVoollcombe was at that time on his
way to Canada!
I mentioned the weather just now, which reminds me that we
had such glorious weather over there that one night, after four
weeks of unbroken sunshine, we decided to camp out under the
skies. An hour after we had settled down it suddenly began to
pour with rain! Undismayed but bedraggled we motored all that
night and crossed the border into Scotland at about 5 a.m. It was
a wonderful sight to see the mighty Cheviots in the grey dawn, and

Leonard Courtneige proceeded blithely along Regent Street.
He was dressed in his latest and most stylish suit. This gave away
his state of mind to the intelligent beholder, as Len saved this suit
for happy occasions. This, indeed, was an occasion for an uplifted
heart, as Len was lunching with his Sweetheartg but little could he
guess how 'fate was to intervene. How could he know that a cer-
tain banana-skin was to prevent him keeping his appointment?
XVhen his foot struck this dangerous object, he felt himself flying
through the air. All the stars in the Universe seemed to collide in
one great Hash of blinding light. Then all became black.
Vtlhen Len regained consciousness two minutes later, he was
aware of two strong arms which were holding him suspended in
mid-air. with his feet scarcely touching the ground. He instantly
made sure he was awake by pinching himself. Seeing he was con-
scious, his benefactor placed him upon his feet. A voice informed
him that if he had known " 'ow ter break a falli' he would not have
hurt himself. Still very dazed, Len answered 'fer-ah-oh", or
words to that effect. Before he had had time to grasp where he
was going, he was in a well-lighted gymnasium. A barrel-chested
man, wearing a white canvas coat, who seemed to be quite crazy,
repeatedly jumped into the air, landing at all angles on a mat.
After each fall he would rise and gesticulate with his hands, quot-
ing what seemed to be a magic expression, "S'easy".
Soon Len understood him to say that it was time for him to
try it. Escape seemed impossible, so Len decided he had better
humour the man. As soon as he had reached this decision, our
hero jumped high into the air. XVith the instruction he had already
had, he landed fairly safely. Suddenly the full truth of the matter
dawned on him. His fall had shaken all the clouds from his mind,
and he saw that this man was not only his benefactor, but was
trying to show him how to land easily after a dangerous fall. After
this illuminating discovery, Len had no choice but to thank this
man who had been so good to him. Wlhile shaking hands before
departing, Len was informed that his instructor was Professor
'0rseley. who was known the world over for his "five 'undred vic-
tories" against all comers. All he used was "Jin-Jitsu". Much to
Len's dismay the fee was one pound-the total sum he had with
him. Thus it was with mingled emotions that Len resumed his
walk along Regent Street, his clothes no longer immaculate, and
his pockets empty.
Two days later, however, we again find our hero happily wend-
ing his way through the crowded sidewalk outside Baker Street
Station. XVhile crossing the street, his gaze wandering amongst

it was that he did not notice the large smear of grease which some
poorly-functioning vehicle had left. His feet left the ground en-
tirely, when he stepped on this, but. remembering his lesson I.en
applied all his knowledge of 'liu-.litsu to save himself: but this was
of no avail. and Courtneige lay there as if dead.
"Er-oh-ah Y" gasped l.en as his scattered faculties returned
He looked around. His arm pained dreadfully, and he had a hor-
rible feeling in his chest every time he breathed. Suddenly the
terrible truth dawned on him. He was in a hospital cot, swathed
in bandages. A white-clothed nurse sat beside him. He turned
his enquiring gaze upon her and asked as to his injuries. "One
broken arm and two broken ribs", was the answer. XYeakly he
fell back on the pillow, his gaze wandering. In the next cot to his
was a man who seemed to be in great pain. He too, was swathed
in bandages from head to foot. "Er-excuse me", began Len. "but
could you tell me whether my poor neighbour was hit by a bus or
the Royal Scot?" The nurse gently replied that he had an amazing
amount of injuries from just a mere fall. She explained that he
had four broken ribs, one broken arm, a broken collar-bone, and
severe concussion. XYith renewed interest Len surveyed him fellow-
patient. Suddenly recognition struck him like a blow. It was

During the last fortnight of term every boy in the junior
School tried to write something for the Ashburian. Some of the
articles handed in were. of course, poor, but few were bad. This
fact in itself was surprising but even more so was the fact that
several boys essayed to write verse. The calibre of the verse is
shown by the fact that none has been printedg but at least, let us
note. attempts were made.
But writing, as we have often noticed, is not easy, like reading.
which should not always be too easy but frequently is. XYhen we
are reading we are absorbing, in various degrees, another man's
ideas. But when we are writing we are creating something ourselves
and. quite naturally, it stands to reason that the first things that we
create are in no wise going to be perfect. Poets, it is said, are born.
not made. The same might be said, of course. of any writers, but
like a great many other maxims this should be taken with the
proverbial grain of salt. Nine times out of ten it is practice and
practice only that makes a writer. Some of our great men of
letters of today would never have risen from the ordinary rank and
file if they had not been prepared to practise at their trade, to hash
and re-hash, to revise and cut, and often to re-write completely
what they had originally written.
Practise, we suggest then. at writing. Some of you may be
journalists one day, or write books, and perhaps one or two of you
may even write poetry, if only for your own pleasure and amuse-
ment and written in the complete seclusion of your own room. In
any case 'XYriting maketh an exact man' and exactitude, though
made rather a fetish today. is an attribute well worth while no
matter in what trade or profession you may find yourself.

Perhaps it will never be settled who falls off a horse most, Bailey
or Newcombe. However, the fact that Newcombe won the Sergeant-

doubtedly forced Bailey to fall back on the old Equestrian stand-by.
Again this year Mrs. Vlfright gave her annual Hallow e'en party
for the Juniors. Needless to say it was a great success, and Mrs.
Brodie certainly made the competitive games heaps of fun. XYhat
prizes, and what eats! '
Shortly after Half Term, Mr. Johnson showed us a short Movie
about Beavers and one about the Canadian XVest. They were much
appreciated, especially the former in which there were one or two
Beavers which reminded Mr. Porritt of certain members of the
junior School. YVas it their zeal?
There has been a singular lack of birthday parties this term,
Robert XYilson's being the sole exception. His, however, amply
made up for this glaring mistake. More birthdays, please!
Mental Arithmetic has been introduced in the Junior School.
It is said that if one listens closely in the halls one can hear the
brains of the Upper Division ticking over at the amazing rate of half
a revolution a minute.
Ping-Pong is very much the rage in the school at the moment,
thanks to the new table Mr. Porritt has given to the juniors. It
is hoped that a tournament will be run off next term, but in the
meantime many interesting matches are being played, and almost any
spare half hour will see some of us playing, often vainly trying to
take our revenge on the Masters. Sometimes. dowever, we succeed.
In concluding these notes we wish to congratulate Grant on
winning the Newcombe prize at the Closing last june. XYe hope
he continues the good work in the Senior School.

This year we were fortunate in having more Soccer fixtures
than usual and although we started off by a series of defeats we
finished the season with three straight victories.
Our first game was against Selwyn House in Montreal on
October 11th. Their team was decidedly superior to ours from every
point of view and we were fortunate in holding them to the score
of 2-O. Their men seemed bigger than ours and their long kicks
from the Backs and their ability to head the ball kept the play
continually at Ashbury's end. However, when they came to Ottawa
on the 27th, we had sufficiently improved so as to be able to beat
them Z-1. Grant and XYilgress II scoring for Ashbury.
Un November 3rd, Bishop's College School sent up a Soccer
team from Lennoxville, and we were glad to welcome their Juniors
on their initial visit to Ashbury. XYe hope that this game will now
become an annual fixture. The score of this match was 3-O for
Ashbury, but the game was closer than the score indicates, and in
this connection it is interesting to notice that there was only a differ-
ence of three pounds in the average weight of the two teams: a
difference, we might add, in favour of our opponents. The home
team's goals were scored by Grant, XVilgress H, and Beard.
Besides the first team the Juniors were able to put on the field
a "Twelve and Linder" team, comprising all the 'smaller elementsf
and was justly named The Terror of the Neighbourhood. The vim
and vigor displayed by some of the members of this team was
amazing and some of them promise to be real Soccer players in the
This second team had two fixtures: against St. :Xlban's, at
home and away. In the first game. played in Brockville, we were
defeated 2-O. but in the return match we turned the tables and beat
St. Alban's 2-1, XYilgress H scoring both our goals.
As regards the individual players. all showed tremendous im-
provement as the season advanced. XYillgress II, as Captain and
Centre Forward, was the mainstay of the team. .-Xn excellent
dribbler, he never allowed himself to get out of position and was
always ready to receive a pass from either of the XYings. He played
with his brain as well as his feet.
Barclay was an invariably excellent Goal-Keeper, and his sure
pair of hands saved many a would-be goal.
The two Wlilsons, as Backs, are promising players. XYilson III
has a tendency to get out of position but works extremely hard, and
once he realizes that his brother is quite capable of looking after
his own side of the field will be a very valuable player.

The Halves showed lack of experience but should do better
next year. Beard has weight and a sense of the game in his favour
and Ronalds, though easily winded, is already a player to be reck-
oned with. For the first few games Ronalds played in Goal but
was handicapped by his size and played better as Left Half.
The Forwards had at first a tendency to 'hog' the ball, but
when they learned that they could only score by team work they
quickly learned to pass. Grant and Lawrence I are thoroughly
reliable players, while Bailey and Bronson, though somewhat eratic
at times. are capable of playing well. Bailey, however, must stop
'playing to the gallery', and concentrate more if he wants to play
On the second team Lawrence II and Wlhitfield may be said
to have 'starred'. Absolutely fearless, these two seemed to delight
in taking the ball away from their elders.
In conclusion our thanks are due to Mr. Johnsons Intermed-
iates. who gave us many good, fast games on Wednesday after-

Astronomy is a branch of Science which is very important
because the earth we live on is part of the solar system, and so
we should know something about the other planets that are near
The two planets that are nearest to the earth are Mars and
Venus. Most of the great astronomers of today are trying to find
out whether Mars is inhabited or not. The other planet, Yenus,
however, is really more likely to be inhabited than Mars, because
the air around this planet is better suited to human life, as we
know it. But these are not the only two planets in the solar system.
There are many others, such as Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Mercury,
and the recently discovered Pluto.
There are millions and millions of bodies in the sky which we
call Stars, but the most important of all the heavenly bodies is the
sun. A long, long time ago, before there was anything living, there
was only the sun, which was one great mass of burning gas. There
was also another body, which we do not know the name of, which
had a stronger attraction for bodies than the sun. It began pulling
at a large mass of the burning gas, which one day broke off, split-

other hand, is merely a burnt out planet which reflects the light of
the sun at night.
Astronomy has always held a peculiar fascination for man,
and today the study of the heavens is carried on by means of very
powerful telescopes. by the aid of which we are each day learning
more and more about "the universe around us".

Une of the best things about a radio programme is that you
do not have to listen to it. But when you go to the opera or to a
concert and you know what an enormous price has been paid for
your ticket. and realize how much has been done for you, you feel
you must listen and enjoy the music whether you want to or not.
XVith a radio, though, you can be hearing Leo Consandorivi sing-
ing "The Toreador Song", and right in the worst of his singing,
you can stop and read the "Funnies".
Great pleasure can be had from the radio by sneaking along
the dial. It is like peaking through key-holes. You can get all
the best advice in the world on what you should eat. what you
should wear, what soap and tooth paste you should use and then
you can just walk away from the radio and eat what you please.
wear what you have got and go as dirty as you dare. XYhat advice
you miss at school and at home you can always Find on the radio.
The radio has made a much more enjoyable thing out of ill-
ness. For instance, if you are sick with a cold in your head, you
can spend a happy time imitating joe Penner. It is then very easy
to say, "You nachty monn", "You weeked whomon". The joe
Penner programme does not ease a broken arm but it does make
a cold worth while.
Un brisk, cold mornnigs there is a very energetic programme
which can be had from New York. The announcer seems so pain-
fully wide awake and fresh as he orders out the morning exercises.
with the 'arms up', 'head back', 'on the toe" movements, I have
even uncovered one ear to hear him.
There is really very little in the world worth knowing that the
radio will not tell you and if you keep all your tubes in good con-
dition you can be fairly sure to lead a brilliant, healthy life, which
might even last forever.

It is about half past ten on November llth, 1920. in London.
VVhitehall is crowded with people who have come to pay tribute to
Britain's Unknown Soldier. Some of the people have been there
all night. in order to secure a good place. A small lane in the
middle of the street is kept open by guardsmen down which the
gun-carriage bearing the Unknown Soldier is to pass.
It is nearly eleven o'clock and a band playing the Dead March
is coming up the street. After it comes the gun-carriage which is
draped with the Union jack. It also carries the King's sword and
a steel helmet. the familiar "Tin Hat". Every woman there is
wondering whether it might not be her son who occupies the hon-
oured position to-day.
There are many men of high rank who are paying respect to
the Unknown Soldier. Standing at one corner of the cenotaph are
Lord Haig, who commanded the British forces in France. Admiral
Beatty who commanded the navy, and Air Marshall Trenchard. All
these men did great service during the war. On one side stand the
