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.

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

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

In about four or five year's time, it is hoped there will be a
