November Sth, l935.
I am glad to have an opportunity of sending
at this season a word of greeting to Ashbury
College through The Ashburian. I may perhaps be
allowed to speak as an 'Old Boy' not of Ashbury,
but of a School of old foundation that stands
within the same traditions and ideals of work
and play as those that Ashbury has inherited.
The first thing, then, that I should like
to say is this: Looking back over a period longer
than that of which the Harrow Song sings,
UTwenty years, thirty years, forty years onn, I
can say to you sincerely that throughout a long
and varied life I have found our highest School
ideals to be of lasting value. They have proved
always to be good guides and good checks and good
reminders also. I
Again in the years that follow School days
we have a responsibility towards those who have
not had a share in School traditions such as ours.
The Prince of Wales in his message to the Boy
Scouts this Jubilee year makes a great suggestion.
HI am confident that all games players
will agree with me that it would be a
fine thing if our traditional team spirit
could be used to improve the chances of
another generation, if our fellowship in
sport could come to mean also fellowship
There are multitudes today who are having
little chance in life. With our own School
loyalties and privileges behind us, what can we
do for them in the years that lie ahead?
My last thought is this. Christmas is near
at hand with its message,
HPeace on earth, goodwill towards menu.
If we look out on the world today our modern life
seems strangely out of tune with this wonderful
message. What can be done? I suggest that we
begin with ourselves. There is another School to
which your School and mine owe all that is best
in them. lt is the School of Christ. Here we can
learn as nowhere else that self-sacrifice and not
self-seeking is still the highest of all ideals,
and that in this ideal alone the true Key to good
and successful living is to be found.
A Merry Christmas to you all and a New Year
full of health, unselfish service and happiness.

THE ASHBURIAN l9l
H AN the lithiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots?" Ynlike
either of these The Ashburian has very definitely changed both its skin
and its spots, and reappears now rejuvenated and ready for the kill.
This issue of The Ashburian is published by the boys. ln the past the boys
have played little or no part in the actual organization of the school magazine.
and their interest in it was noticeably on the wane. They were ready to read it
when it was printed but they did not seem sufficiently interested to write for it.
and they criticized it because they had had no part in the making of it. True.
contributions from the boys were always readily accepted, but the reports of the
games and of the various activities of the school came from other sources. The
boys failed to realise that the success or failure of The Ashburian must always
rest with them and that it is printed just as much for their own interest and in-
struction as for the interest of others, Their interest waned because. in the large
sense of the word, it was not their magazine.
It was with the determination to remedy this apathetic outlook that it was
decided to reorganize the staff of The Ashburian, appointing boys to editorial
positions. thereby definitely placing the responsibility of the School magazine
on their shoulders. How they have borne this responsibility is for the reader
of this issue to judge. for with the exception of a few official notes everything
has been written by the boys. They have reported their own games. commented
on contemporary exchanges, edited their own articles and stories, and. in general.
have written the magazine.
That, we feel, is as it should be. A school magazine is undoubtedly printed
to give news about the school for others to read. That is the very reason for its
being, But a good school magazine has another purpose to fulfil and, to ot1r
way of thinking. an equally important one. It should be the medium for self-
talent that can be found within the school's precincts. Xot only should
whatever suitable contributions it receives. but it should
ferret out all latent ability. It should encourage, for
boys to try their hand at writing by assuring them that
go out of its
a story by a
boy of nine is just as likely to be printed as a story by a boy twice his age.
. Again, the magazine should distinguish between the various types of literary
ability. The boy who cannot write two lines of verse may be just the one to
describe a football match. and it is the duty of the magazine to see that that
boy does not hide his light under a bushel and that he is made to feel respon-
sible for the due exercise of that talent.
Such, then. are the duties of a school magazine. XYriting. says Bacon.
maketh an exact man, and if The Ashburian can only have the satisfaction of
making boys appreciate the value and necessity of exactitude in the world today
it will have surely justified its existence. If it can claim to have encouraged and
brought forth any real literary talent it will have more than fulfilled its purpose.

li Rlilililfl' to record the departure from the Stal? of Ashbury of
Messrs. B. K. T. Howis and K. B. Castle who have returned to Fngland
to take up positions there.
XYe welcome to the Stat? Mr. A. ll. Brain, late of Oxford and the University

lithiopian situation delivered by himself or by a boy, each morning in the week.
XYe congratulate ll. D. l.. Snelling on heading the Bowling Averages of the
O.Y.L'.C. last june. This is the Hrst time an Ashbury boy has led the list since
the founding of the club.
As a stimulus to literary activity among the boys The Ashburian offered
this term a series of cash prizes for the best and second best articles, stories,
poems, and one-act plays submitted to the Editorial Board, and gave also two
prizes for photography, on the understanding that any pictures that were
awarded prizes might be reproduced in the magazine.
Below is given the prize list for this issue:-

Royal Military Collegc,
In reply to your enquiries about the Old Boys at R.M.C.. I am only
too glad to tell you what I can concerning our activities.
C. S. M. Coristine is in the graduating class this year and. as his
rank shows, is doing remarkably well. He will be playing on the Col-
lege hockey team this winter. as will MacBrien, our Class Senior, who,
in spite of all his extra duties. seems to be enjoying the life thoroughly.
Already he is on the Senior Rugby Team and is making a mark for
himself in studies as well as in sport.
Hadley. now in his second year, comes to see us now and then. He
is doing well. needless to say. in his work.
XX'ilson and myself, both recruitsealong with MacBrien-are
struggling through our year as best we can. If one lives from day to
clay the life is very enjoyable. XX'ilson, I should add, is both a most
efficient and popular Flat Senior.
That. I think. completes the list. and as I have to be on parade in
live minutes I must close.
Yours very sincerely.
Stairs, it will be noted, says very little about himself. In the examinations
last -Iune for entrance into the B..-X. course in Science at McGill he was placed
third on the list and won the Sir XX'illiam MacDonald scholarship, which, how-
ever, he did not accept in view of his entering the Royal Military College.

Below we reproduce another letter from an Old Boy. giving us news of Old
.-Xshburians at Bishops University:
University of Bishop's College,
The number of Old Boys here is, unfortunately, small, but what we
lack in numbers is made up in representation-we hope.
'Iohn Bassett has played Intermediate Rugby for two years, and
Intermediate Hockey for one. He recently left for a two weeks tour in
the Maritimes, representing the university Debating Society. Besides
these activities Bassett has achieved an enviable reputation as an actor,
having played Orlando in the Dramatic Society's production of As
You Like It last year.
Hugh Powell gets his BA. this year. 'Ernf as he is familiarly
called here, has the reputation of being one of the hardest tacklers in
our Intermediate Intercollegiate Rugby Series. In the winter term 'Ern'
plays Defence on the Intermediate Hockey Team. L.
'Count' Baskerville has already proved himself a capable debater
being on the winning side in the first freshman debate. Bill is still a
keen student of Esquire and a dabbler in ballroom dancing.
For myself, my activities seem to be confined to skipping lectures
and playing a few rounds of golf. Next term, though, I shall turn out
for hockey and hope for the best.
So much for our news. To any Ashburians who may be consider-
ing coming to Bishops in the future I can promise a warm welcome
and the prospects of three very happy years of college life.
XVith all best wishes to everyone at Ashbury.

Roberts, it will be remembered, left Ashbury last june. During his last
year here he was President of the Literary and Debating Society and played on

FOOD FROM THE SKIES
By JOHN TYRER
HE last remnant of 4300 daring Australian soldiers were dying of hunger.
Firmly entrenched between two hordes of the barbarian Turks they had no
means of obtaining supplies.
Fortunately, however, their alertness had proved superior to the fire and
zeal of their enemies. Constant attacks on the Aussies proved to be useless and
the enraged Turks were obliged to rely on the starvation campaign which had
already taken scores of British lives.
Time and time again brave young Aussies had crawled outlnof their natural
fortification and had attempted to make a connection with the outside world, but
the end was always the same: a shriek of horror and a long, drawn out groan.
The situation soon reached a climax and the end was regarded by all as but
a matter of time, when the roar of an aeroplane awakened all thoughts of self-
preservation left in the small handful of soldiers who only a minute ago were
resigned to their fate. Eager eyes tried to pick out the markings on the oncom-
ing plane, but without success.
The aeroplane came on until it reached the Australian lines and then a long
black object was seen to drop.
"lt's a bomb". XYith a mighty shout, the terrified Aussies plunged head-
long into the fusilade of bullets which awaited them. There were no survivors.
High up in the sky the airman smiled. He too was an Australian, and he
had succeeded where so many of his comrades had failed. He had got through,
solo. and had dropped supplies to the starving soldiers,

THE WONDERS OF RADIATION
By VV. A. GRANT
T IS quite true to say that there is nothing of such vital importance to us as
Radiation, and nothing which fills the mind with more awe.
Wiithout it there would be no wireless, no electric light, no gas light. no sun-
light. There would be nothing growing upon the earth, for there would be no
heat from the sun, and therefore if Radiation ceased human life would also
cease. On Radiation, then, our very lives depend.
Ile have not yet lost that sense of the miraculous with which the advent of
"wireless" filled our minds. Ile still say "How wonderfulw, when we think of
those wireless waves coming to our sets across a thousand miles of space. un-
checked by forest, mountain or ocean. IYonderful as that is, indeed, our wonder-
ment is increased when we realize that radio waves form but a very small section
of an immense range of waves which fill the limitless space around us and
produce such widely different phenomena as sound, light, heat and electricity.
All these waves are closely related and belong to one gr-eat system, one
great scale in which each kind of wave has its allotted position, that position
being decided by a certain characteristic of the wave. So closely related, in fact,
are all these waves that they may be regarded as one great family, the members
of which differ from one another in certain particulars, such as energy, but yet
bear the essential family likeness.
lYhen recently Professor Picard, with his assistant, risked his life by ascend-
ing over ten miles into the upper air. he was engaged in research of the Cosmic-
ray. a brother of the X-ray, of electricity. of light.
A clear picture of this huge family of waves will be obtained by considering
its numerous forms, for the story of these waves, their strange qualities. their
immense power, and man's indomitable perseverance and ingenuity in discover-
ing and then harnessing them to his purpose, is indeed a romance.
Let us consider first visible light waves. remembering that they occupy onlv
one division of the seventy odd that make up the universal scale.
Une day in 1675 Sir Isaac Newton took with him into his dark-room a
prism of glass. Could the far reaching results of his experiment have been
foreseen, the linking up of continents by radio, the healing of human ills by
radio-theraphy, none would have been more surprised than he.
"In a very dark chamber", he tells us, "at a round hole about a third of an
inch broad, made in the shutter of a window, I placed a glass prism, whereby
the beam of the sun's light which came in by the hole might be turned towards
the opposite wall of the chamber.
THE ASHBURIAN Il9j
"I let the refracted light fall 1merpendicularly upon a sheet of white paper.
and observed that the image on the paper was coloured, being red at its least
refracted end, violet at its most refracted, and yellow, green and blue in the in-
Newton had split up the beam of white light into the familiar colours of
Newton followed up this experiment with many others which left him in
no doubt of its message. Light must be the blending of those coloured rays.
At once the realization of this truth gave a fresh interpretation and under-
standing of many phenomena. The mystery of colour, for instance, was nearly
Thus everybody is now aware that a geranium is not really red any more
than eyes that appear blue are blue. XYhat happens is that when sunlight falls
on the geranium the substance of the flower miraculously absorbes all the white
light save the red which it reflects. If, therefore. a green light were directed
on it the bloom would appear black as nothing is reflected. Grass is green be-
cause the grass cannot absorb the green light so it is reflected.
The discovery, by Newton. of the Spectrum, as the group of colours com-
prising white light is called, laid the foundation of the study of Radiation.
How did those rays of light travel? That was the next question.
Newton thought that a stream of particles of light travelled to ,us from the
sun in straight lines. But he was mistaken. His theory certainly fitted some of
the phenomena of light such as reflection, but it did not allow for the fact that
a beam of light bends round a corner and illuminates on the other side a
body placed in its path. This bending is known as diffraction.
But what caused those differently coloured rays of the Spectrum? XX'hy
should one be green and another blue.
By infinite labour and thought the mystery was solved. It was found that
different colours were produced by different wave-lengths, that the waves of
green light, for instance. were longer than those of blue light and that those of
red light were longer again than those of green.
That then was the beginning, the very first division in the great scale of
waves. Red, orange. yellow, green, blue. indigo and violet-seven different
colours were produced by seven different wave lengths.
Now these waves must travel in something. But the light from the sun
reaches us across a 93.000000 mile gulf which apparently is airless. empty space.
Since waves, however, cannot exist in nothing, scientists have put forward the
theory that space, far from being empty, is filled completely with something
which they have named Ether,
moi THE ASHBURIAN
Of this lither nobody in the world knows its exact nature, but it is thought
to be of an immense density, and for this reason. Sound travels quicker in water
than in air and quicker still in metals. So, it may well be agreed that the speed
of waves depends on the density of the medium through which they pass. Now
the speed of light is almost instantaneous and therefore the density of the ether
must be almost infinite.
Any article on Radiation would be incomplete without mention being made
of the wonders of the X-ray, certain of which carry sufficient energy to penetrate
two inches of lead. There are the soft X-rays, less penetrative than the others.
such as are used in the shoestores for a correct Fitting, and the hard X-rays,
used for medical purposes.
But there remained yet another division in Radiation. that of the Cosmic
rays explored by Professor Picard in recent times. The penetrating power of
these rays can be imagined when it is realized that they are capable of penetrat-
ing several yards of lead and have been detected under 800 ft. of water.
They were first discovered in the early part of the twentieth century by
McLellan and Rutherford and subsequent investigations showed"that the amount
of cosmic Radiation was independant of the earth's position. Neither day nor
night nor the seasons of the year effect the energy received from this source.
Evidently they cannot originate in the sun for if this was the case they
would be interrupted by the earth's rotation and thus it was concluded that they
started from somewhere outside our system.
The effect of Cosmic rays on life generally and human life in particular has
not yet been fully determined, but Sir .lames .leans asserts that every second
Cosmic radiation disintegrates millions of molecules in our bodies. Every
second also it is breaking up twenty molecules in each cubic inch of air.
So much for the Cosmic-ray, Now let us consider briefly the question of
the speed of light. a question inextricably bound up with Radiation.
Light travels at the rate of 136,000 miles a second. lf we could travel on
a beam of light from our earth we should reach the moon in lk seconds, the
sun in 81,5 minutes and Proima Centauri, the nearest star. in four vears.
If there were inhabitants on a planet in the Hercules Cluster, and their
astronomers directed a super-telescope upon our earth, they would at this hour
see something of our life in the Neolithic Age.
XYhy is this you may ask. The answer is that the Hercules Cluster is
36,000 light years distant from the earth. That is light travelling at 136.000
miles a second would take 36.000 years to reach that Cluster.
THE ASHBURIAN IZII
Again we are familiar with horse-power, so that we can realize the signifi-
cance of a power of 10. 20 or 100 h.p. Hut the sun is continually pouring forth
300,000.000.000,000 h.p. and what is more this Hood of energy bridges the in-
tervening space between the earth and the sun without heating it.
Again, the disintegration of an atom in a star billions of miles away will
send to us a wave of energy which we may trap and examine.
The limitless spaces surrounding us. the ether. is full of waves of energy in
one or other of its Protean forms of light, heat, or electro-magnetism. waves
upon which our very lives depend, waves that travel billions of miles from a
disintegrating star. waves that destroy or build up mighty worlds.
As long ago as the Golden Age of Greece it was held by certain philoso-
phers that if a portion of a substance was continually sub-divided into smaller
and smaller pieces a limit would eventually be reached when the process could
not be continued-the smallest piece of the substance that could exist would then
have been obtained. This minute unit they called an atom, that is something
that could not be cut. Atoms then were looked upon as the imperishable founda-
tion stone of the universe: and until the closing years of the nineteenth century
it was still thought that the atom was incapable of damage, that it was ever-
But that belief was destroyed by the discovery of radio-activity. that is, the
spontaneous breaking up of the atoms of certain of the heavier elements. And
now the atom is being broken up in the laboratory.
Mathematicians. by reasoning, astronomers. by studying the stars. and the
physists have all reached the same conclusion: every atom of matter is a solar
system. It has a central sun round which revolve its planets. The sun is called
the Nucleus, the planets. electrons. Suddenly these electrons will jump from
one orbit to another. XYhen that happens energy is created that is sent in a
wave out into space.
But man has not been content simply to discover these amazing facts for
he has even harnessed them to his own use.
The Callophane, making use of Ultra-Violet rays. can distinguish between
forged money and real, and at a recent exhibition of Italian pictures invisible
rays protected the paintings from theft. If the line of these rays was broken
an alarm sounded and all the doors automatically closed. thus preventing the
escape of the criminal.
Again Radiation has given our generation the inestimable advantage of
radio, cutting down, as it were. the size of our globe. It is the dream of Science
to capture one day the heat of desert places, and transmit it through space to
Sunless areas, so that barren places may become fertile and fertile places even

a regular and increased temperature and rich crops are raised in a much shorter
time than heretofore.
l'aradoxically too there is the liklihood of death within the powers of
Radiation and also there is the certainty of life, for the Ultra-Yiolet rays have
cured a host of "deficiency" diseases and radium has been used with success in
the treatment of cancer.
There is already the Super-Tonic ray which directed upon small fish and
frogs in water has killed them.
Then there is also the mythical "death ray." XYill that soon emerge from
the shadowy realm of fiction to a too grim reality?
If one day man will have it in his power to regulate climate, to make the
barren wastes of the earth fertile. to see across a distance of a thousand miles.

In conclusion it is to be noted that scientists now believe that Radiation

EAR XYinnipeg in Canada is one of the strangest institutions on the face
of the earth. Here is a body of men who live under the most stringent
conditions, who eat simple fare, work long hours and never converse

customs which have been kept intact for some hundreds of years.
The Trappists greet the day at two in the morning to participate in religious
exercises for the next live hours. This is followed by five hours of manual
labour, when the monks plow and harrow the land and, as in any other farming
community, tend the various crops. Other monks, in the meantime. are oc-
cupied in the dairies. for the Trappists' farm is a most efficient organization and

of the foodstuffs which these monks cultivate inside their confines find their
way to our table. but the monks themselves never benefit from the results of
their labours. lYhat they have spent so many hours nurturing and cultivating

MURDER AT HILLCRES1' MANGR
By Avi-:Rv DUNNING
S THE luxurious limousine wound around the curves of Dalton Road. one
could hardly help noticing its occupants. ln the tonncau rc-posed Mrs.
Reginald Dutton, a rather pompous lady of tifty-two years. Beside her
sat her daughter Gloria. a sophisticated girl of nineteen. ln the front. beside
the chauffeur. sat Reginald Dutton, jr., a weak and sallow individual. who,
despite his older appearance. was. in reality. only twenty-five.
The car drew up in front of Hillcrest Manor and the party alighted. As
they entered the huge drawing-room Mrs. Charles Belton. their hostess. rushed
to greet them. Mrs. Belton was a portly lady in her late forties. She lived in
a world of 'rushesf In the morning she rushed to the telephone to inform the
newspapers that she was having a luncheon and to give a long list of the guests.
In the late afternoon she again rushed to the telephone to enquire if the luncheon
had been correctly reported and to add a few colourful notes about herself. She
worshipped the social register and was in constant fear that someone might
deprive her of her position as the leading 'socialite' of the town.
Mr. Belton, whose only apparent claim to recognition was that he was the
husband of the socially famous Mrs. Belton. was in the library talking politics.
or rather listening to the political views of Mr. Dutton, who had arrived earlier
in the afternoon. I
Having removed the stains of travel the party partook of one of Mrs. Bel-
ton's famous ten course dinners. during the course of which the ladies gave their
views on the latest styles in dresses. Mr. Dutton continued his talk on politics
to Mr. Belton, and Reginald. interested in neither of these topics. merely looked
bored and wished he was somewhere else.
After dinner Mary Bolton. the daughter of the house. returned from a
fishing trip. and she and Gloria went to look over the house. The older people
played bridge and again Reginald was left alone. He wandered about from
room to room gazing at the beautiful pictures in a disinterested way. Reginald
was not really interested in art. but as he had no particular hobby and was in-
terested in nothing but pretty girls. he found these more consoling than the
remarks of Mrs. Belton and his mother. He managed. by straining his patience.
to pass the evening in solitude. He was glad of the opportunity to escape. how-
ever, when everyone, fatigued by the journey. retired early.
The next morning. when the butler went to awaken Mr. Belton. he found
his master lying on his bed. his pyjamas covered with blood. and the hilt of a
dagger protruding from his chest. The butler immediately notified the police
and awakened the household.
l261 THE ASHBURIAN
lYith the arrival of the police began a hectic day of questioning, cross-
questioning and general disturbance about the house. Mrs, Belton, as was to be
expected, had fainted upon hearing the news. and what with the doctor, a nurse.
the policemen, the newspaper reporters and curious' neighbours. the house was
in an uproar. By nightfall everyone's nerves were on edge and again all retired
early, with the exception of Reginald, who sat up trying, by the various means
of deduction applied by Sherlock Homes, to find a solution to the murder.
The criminal investigators could find no motive for the crime, and all the
suspects had alibis. For over two weeks the police were baffied and still they
kept a guard of four policemen around the house. It was not until three weeks
after the murder, at about two o'clock in the morning. that a soft shuffiing noise
was heard on the first landing by two of the guards. who quietly but quickly
crept towards the sound.
In the dim moonlight the two officers saw a figure shuffle into the room
which had been occupied by Mr. Belton. In a minute they had crept to the
door and were looking into the room. The figure stalked to the bed and plung-
ing a knife into the mattress muttered, "You double-crosser! Thought I was
dead, eh! Vvell, now you know I'm not." 3'
The light was switched on. and, covering the figure with their revolvers, the
two policemen entered the room. lt was the butler. But he paid no attention to the
ofiicers and was about to pass them when they lept on him. As often occurs,
the shock of being awakened while sleep-walking proved fatal and the butler
The butler did, however, regain consciousness for a few minutes and con-
fessed that he had murdered his master. He told of his relations with Mr.
Belton in the past. which provided an excellent motive for the crime. Every-
one was pleased that the murderer had been disclosed, with the exception of
Reginald. who was very disgusted and downcast when he heard of the butler's
confession, for he had. by his own methods of deduction. conclusively proved
that the housekeeper's husband was the guilty person,
IN DAYS OF OLD
This is the story that I was told
Of something that happened in days of old,
When men were brave and ladies fair,
And life was lived with never a care,
Save for wine and women, sport and song,
When days were short and nights were long.
A stormy night with the wind and rain:
A coach and horses in a country lane,
A cry and a shout and a "Whoa there mare",
And out from the coach stepped a ladye fair.
The highwayman bowed and dofed his cap
At seeing a lady as pretty as that.
A murmur'd word and a girlish laugh
And out she stepped with her bag and staff,
And "What care I for you", she said,
"For your eyes are bright and lips are red,
And the man l've left is old and staid,
So come with me and forget your trade."
So in he jumped with the lady fair,
And the jewels gleamed soft like stars in her hair.
The harness rattl'd, the coach swayed on,
On through the night,-towards .London town.
And the storm blew on with the wind and rain,
But all was quiet in that country lane.
And this is the story I was told
Of that which happened in days of old,
Of the lady fair who at break of day,
Married her highwayman, and away
They vanished for ever from mortal ken,
For the two of them n'er were seen again.
And oft at night when the wind blows chill
A coach comes rattling over the hill:
A ghostly coach it sways into sight
And vanishes swiftly into the night.
The horses hoofs are the only sound,
But they leave no trace on the cold wet ground.

THE ASHBURIAN 29
Crea! men strive and persevere
Even when the goal is near.
Others fail to malfe the grade,
Soon drop out and quickly fade.
"1 have lost all hope," they say,
"Fate has destined my decay."
Cowards, do you fear to gaze
At tomorrow's golden blaze?
Little do you realize
Chances great would meet your
If you raised your brows and met
Life's great future,
Ere it dies.

THE BOGK OF REMEMBRANCE
By ROBERT LANE
HE Memorial Chamber in the Peace Tower of The Parliament liuildings
is complete except for one important factor-the Hook of Remembrance.
The resting place of this book will be on the .Xltar Stone in the centre
of the Chamber.
The Book of Remembrance is Canada's token of gratitude to those who gave
their lives in the Allied cause. XYithin its covers will be inscribed the names of
every one of the 69.000 Canadian soldiers dead. lt will be one of the most
beautiful books ever fashioned by the hand of man, and. it is hoped, will remain
intact for hundreds of years.
The actual labour of constructing the book is being undertaken by Mr.
Purves, a renowned illuminator and cultured gentleman of English birth. The
soldiers' names will be written by hand in Roman letters with one hundred
names to a page. But preceding the names will be a number of illuminated
pages. The tirst will be a dedication of the book to the Canadian people and
those who hold it in remembrance. Succeeding pages will describe. in a heraldic
way. our provinces, great cities. universities. various races. even our native
Indians. Into the illuminatory art will be woven the badges of Canadian war
The materials of which the book is constructed are of considerable im-
portance and are the result of long research work. The leaves are made of the
finest vellum tcalf skinj in the world and six months were required to produce
the 500 odd sheets. Hundreds of ink samples underwent rigorous tests. not
one sample being chosen, Finally a British Company was appealed to which
invented a special durable ink to meet the specified requirements.
The illuminating presented the next problem. After much research. in-
volving the chemical analysis of paints used centuries ago. colours were ob-
tained which will never smudge, fade, or crack. The covers of the book are
made of two laminated tthin strips of wood glued togetherl boards covered with
Levat Morocco. In the centre of the cover will be the Canadian coat of arms.
richly hand-chased in gold. Two solid gold clasps will hold together the covers
at the front. As for the binding, it was decided to use the finest linen, free from
chemicals. Each vellum sheet is fused to a thin linen strip. without adding the
smallest fraction to its thickness. and will be sewn separately into the back of
XYith these high quality materials will be fashioned Canada's Book of Re-
membrance. The volume will be nineteen inches square. twelve inches thick.
weighing 150 pounds. The approximate cost of the work will total 335.000,
Mr. Purves takes great interest in his work and is only too pleased to ex-
plain his art to any one interested.

HIS year the library has begun to regain the position which it sllolllrl
always hold. Too much stress cannot be laid on the necessity uf frequent
reading. ln every walk of life the advantage of having knowledge of the
world and the actions of great men is ever apparent.
The murder mystery. which so many of our present day Yictorians regard
as a menace to the culture of the younger generation is without a doubt a strong
incentive towards the love of literature.
The boy who is forced to read the classics before he has read his share of
good healthy adventure stories can never develop a love for the intellectual bc-
cause he is unable to make comparisons,
The theme of the murder-mystery story is undoubtedly a sensational one
for the spirit of the present era has to be catered to, and this is an age of
speed. This is no' reason. whichever way we look at it, for the constant attacks
that are being made upon detective hction. and there is still less reason why the
youth of to-day should consider delving into the past before sampling the
Once again Mr. Brodie has made an agreement with Freiman's Lending
Library whereby the School secures ten books a fortnight. and as the term

HIS department always finds some diliiculty in commenting on the publi-
cations of other schools and colleges. This year we received numerous
copies from girls' schools. XYe naturally Find this somewhat flattering
and we can assure these schools that their magazines receive a warm welcome.
This year, instead of reaching into the hat. and criticizing a dozen publica-
tions, we will endeavour to comment on what we think are the four best Cana-
dian school magazines we receive. We have deliberately selected school maga-
zines for criticism as university and college publications are in rather a different
In our opinion the following magazines appeal to us the most: The Bishops
College School Magazine, Samara, of Elmwood. the St. Andrews College Re-
view, and the Trinity College School Record.
im THE ASHBURIAN
The B. C. S. magazine is one of the best that we receive, We like the way
they arrange their articles and their typography is uniformly excellent. XYe also
congratulate them on their photographs. It is a delightful magazine both to
handle and to read.
The Samara has always been a welcome exchange with us. but in their last
issue the Editorial Board seems to have surpassed itself. As with the B. C. S.
magazine illustrations play an important part in this publication and we thought
the Silver Jubilee photographs and article singularly appropriate.
The St. Andrew's College Review is an excellent magazine enjoyable to
read, and really informative about the school.
These three magazines, in a long list of exchanges. seem to us as most
representative of school literary ability. the encouraging of which is surely the
raixoiz drfrc of all publications.
In acknowledging the following exchanges we hope that some of them will
comment on the Ashburian, particularly as regards its new format, for only by
friendly criticism among school magazines can improvements be made and mis-
takes and errors rectified:
The Meteor. The Kings Hall Magazine, The Albanian, Toc H Journal, The
R. M. C. Review, Trinity College Magazine. Trinity University Review, The
XYalnut Cracker, The Felstedian, The Tallow Dip, The Mitre, Blue and XYhite,
The Grove Chronicle, and The St. Thomas' College Magazine.

N SUNDAY, October 6th, a few privileged members of the Ashbury
College Cadet Corps joined the Officers of the Governor-t3eneral's Foot-
Guards in a tactical exercise.
The Corps left Ottawa in buses, and was taken several miles out the Mon-
treal road to Greens Creek, the proposed scene of the "battle". Here, three
Ashbury Cadets were attached to each of the four Platoon Commanders, and the
remainder was assigned to head-quarters.
The morning was spent reconnoitring and preparing to iight a Rear-Guard
Action. At noon there was an interval for lunch. Later, positions were again
taken up, and the manoeuvers successfully carried out, VVhen these were over
Captain Forna gave a short address which ended the day's proceedings.
The Ashbury College Cadets desire to thank Colonel Chrysler for making
this enjoyable and beneficial outing possible. In return it is to be hoped that
the School Corps was of some assistance to the Governor-Generals Foot Guards.
Below is a resume of the day's programme:

E BEGAN the season with rather a disadvantage in that there were
very few of last year's team back, and in consequence we lost most of
our club games in the earlier part of the season. However by dint of
hard work the team steadily improved and succeeded in beating Bishop's Col-
lege School as well as Lower Canada College. Both games with Government
House were won as well as the fixture with the Old Boys.
CRICKET CHARACTERS, 1935
By F. B. XVHITFIELD, ESQ.
tl. B. Kirkpatrick. Captain, 3rd Year on the team. :X steady fast medium
bowler who could always be relied upon to keep a length. As a batsman he
was disappointing till the latter half of the season, when he began to use
his height and reach and scored runs with powerful driving on both sides
of the wicket. A safe catch and a sound field. Captained the side well and
showed considerable ability in handling his bowling. A
R. K. Davidson. lst year on the team. A really clever left handed bowler who
was not afraid to pitch the ball right up to the batsman. Varied his Hight
and pitch and was always difficult to score from. As a batsman he was
rather crude but possessed some powers of defence. A safe catch.
M. D. Maclirien, 2nd year on the team. A sound wicket keeper with a very
quiet style. His batting never really developed as, in spite of a good de-
fence, he was deficient in scoring strokes. A good man in a crisis.
L. Snelling. 2nd year on the team. Had the best style of any batsman in the
side. with a good knowledge of the game, but he did not time the ball well
and cramped himself unnecessarily. His footwork showed improvement
but is still inclined to be clumsy. A promising slow medium bowler with
some command of finger spin. A safe catch and a good field.
A. C. Dunning. lst year on the team. :Xt the beginning of the season his one
idea was to attempt to hit every ball as hard as possible. He took consider-
able pains, however, and by dint of hard work developed into a very useful
forcing batsman who was generally at his best when things were going
against his side. Quick in the field and was useful as a spare wicket keeper.
I. C. 'l'yrer. lst year on the team. A most unorthodox lYltSlll'lll with oriffinal
. I f 5 1
ideas on footwork. Possessed an excellent eye. and generally attacked the
bowling directly he went in, with some considerable success. Should do
well next year if he can learn to watch the ball more closely. .-X safe catch
and reliable field.
THE ASHBURIAN l39l
Hurd. 2nd year on the team. XYas disappointing hoth as a hatsman and a howler
and seemed to lose all confidence in his ahility. liielded very well at cover
and made some excellent catches.
Ronalds I. lst year on the team. Has the makings of a hatsman hut his foot-
work needs a good deal of attention. liis leg shots are powerful and usually
well directed. Rather clumsy in the field.
Ferguson. lst year on the team, A good defensive hatsman hut he was a little
slow in following the hall and inclined to play a hall on his leg stump.
Fielded well near the wicket.
Sharp. 1st year on the team. A hard hitter who sometimes came off hut showed
little discretion in picking out the right hall. A good field and safe catch.
Allan. lst year on the team. As a hatsman he was lacking in self confidence.
A really good field at point and a safe catch.
ASHBURY vs. BISHOPS COLLIQUIQ SCHOOL.
Played on the McGill Campus. May Slst.
Bishops won the toss and hatted first. Their First three hatsmen played
well: they had 70 on the hoard with two wickets down and seemed set for a
large score. Three runs later Rohinson was held at the wicket and that was
the heginning of the end. At 75 Kirkpatrick howled Bennett with a really good
hall which whipped off the pitch, came hack very quickly and hit the top of the
middle stump, Davidson and Kirkpatrick then took complete command and
the side was dismissed for the addition of 1-l runs. X
Ashbury started hadly. losing their first seven wickets for 48. Only Snelling
of the earlier hatsmen shaped with any confidence. But at this stage Ferguson
joined Dunning and an excellent stand made the game safe. Ferguson wisely
concentrated on defence while Dunning pulled anything short of a length to the
leg boundary with unfailing regularity. Two runs were still required when
Dunning was caught at deep square leg for an excellent innings of 45 which
included Z sixes and 8 fours. Tyrer followed and made the winning hit off the
first ball he received. The innings closed for 106, Ferguson carrying his hat
for a very useful 16.

H01 THE ASHBURIAN
ASHBURY vs. LOXYER CANADA COLLEGE
Played in Montreal, june lst.
Ashbury batted first and Macljrien and Davidson gave them a good start
scoring 38 for the first wicket. Three wickets fell for the addition of a run but
Snelling again played well and was unfortunate in being caught off a good hit
when he looked well set. Kirkpatrick soon settled down and sent the score
along at a good pace with powerful driving on both sides of the wicket and
made 42 very quickly when he was bowled in attempting a big pull. Soon after
his dismissal the innings closed for 105.
Lower Canada lost their first three wickets cheaply but then Horwood de-
fended stoutly while Ross at the other end hit out at nearly everything and it
seemed as if this pair might win the game for their side. At 62 Horwood was
bowled by Snelling, and although Ross continued to hit manfully, wickets fell
steadily at the other end, and their last man was clean bowled by Kirkpatrick
with the total standing at 101, leaving Ashbury winners by 4 runs, Both Kirk-
patrick and Davidson bowled very steadily. g

H41 THE ASHBURIAN
HE Senior Soccer team played their first game on the 12th of October and
was successful in defeating the St. Alban's Firsts 5 - l.
Due to the advantage of having a heavier team, the school lead the play
from the start. The first three goals came in a rush and were the result of
intricate passing. Tyrer scored the first of these goals followed 'ny one from
Allan and then another by Tyrer.
After Ashbury had scored their first three. the St. Albans team tightened
up and held us until Bryan scored on a corner kick which was helped into the
goal by the opposing goalie.
The next score came from St. Alban's when, after a brilliant rush down the
field, they sent a terrificyshot past the Ashbury goal-keeper. In the dying
minutes cgfjhe game Ronalds broke through the St, Alban's defence and scored
the Final tally.
The excellent work of the halves and full backs deserves praise, for it was
due entirely to them that the forwards had all the chances they"did.
The Ashbury line-up was as follows:-Goal: Reynolds. Backs: Balders.
Dunning. Halves: Ghent, Paterson lfaptfl, Ronalcls. Forwards: McCormick,
Wfurtele, Tyrer, Allan, Bryan. 1
Pk :ls Dk PF
The Team played its return game with St. Alban's. at Brockville. on the
30th of October.
Once again the superior weight of the school team proved too powerful for
the smaller and much lighter St. Albans side, and we won 7 - O.
The school wasted no time, and with constant rushes kept the ball in the
opponent's territory. Lawson started the scoring after about five minutes of
play and soon followed with another tally.
The admirable playing of the halves and fullbacks made it impossible for
St. Alban's to take a shot at our goalie, and consequently the play was almost
entirely carried on in our opponents territory. After a short lull the scoring
began again and Tyrer and Allan bolstered the score to 4 - O.
ln the second half Tyrer scored once more and Allan succeeded in getting
his second and third tallies, thus leaving us the winners 7 - O.

E had quite a successful season although we lost to a very good Lower
Canada side by a wide margin. The game with Bishops was most
exciting and the result reiiected considerable credit on the team as they
were six points down with four minutes to go and managed to tie the game.
The tackling still leaves a good deal to be desired and it would be wise to
concentrate on this point next season. XYe were very fortunate in being able to
enlist the services of lilair Gilmour, who very willingly gave us the benefit of

J. C. Tyrer, H. Bryan, N. McCormick. D. Paterson. L. Snelling.
By F. lc. B. WHITFIELD, ESQ.
K. XV. Heuser, Captain. Middle. 3rd year on the team. A good line plunger
who hit the line hard. Made good use of his speed but was badly handi-
capped by injury. Safe tackle.
H. A. Barends, Yice-captain. Inside. 2nd year on the team. XYorked hard all
through the game and improved as the season went on. His blocking was
rather intermittent. Tackled well at times.
A. C. Dunning. Half. Znd year on the team, A good sound player who always
worked to the last whistle. Safe tackle and good ball carrier. Kicked con-
sistently well in spite of several injuries and was always very dependable.
' Tyrer. Quarter. Znd year on the team. Developed quite a useful turn of
speed. which made him overapt to use himself on end runs. A cool player
who could produce a very sound game but might learn to vary his plays
with more advantage. flood tackle.
H. Bryan, Flying XYing. lst year on the team. An intelligent player who al-
ways did more than his share of the tackling. Good catch and useful ball
N. McCormick. Half. lst year on the team. A greatly improved player who
used his speed to considerable advantage but must get out of the habit of
running across the field. Improving as a tackle but inclined to wait for
his man to come to him. lfair catch but too apt to wait for the bounce.
D. S. Paterson. Middle. Znd vear on the team. A sound hard working' ilaver
. P4 ,
who was clever at breaking through the llne. A determined tackle who
rarely missed his man. Developed into a highly useful plunger.
THE ASHBURIAN I-171
I.. Snelling. Middle. lst year on the team. Converted from an inside he be-
came the most consistent line plunger in the team. An improved tackle.
Rather prone to get offside but his interference was really good.
J. B. Kirkpatrick. Snap. 2nd year on the team. A very long place kicker
whose ability to kick goals from varying angles was of value to his side.
Not always consistent with his snapping and inclined to leave a gap in the
centre of the line.
Ronalds. Inside. 2nd year on the team, Rather on the slow side but a very
consistent player who did his full share of work in the line. Should be very
useful next year.
Lawson. Half. Znd year on the team. Did not improve as much as he should
have. Carried the ball well at times but was slow off the mark. Could
improve both his tackling and his catching.
Blair. Outside. lst year on the team. A promising player with a useful turn
of speed. Good tackle.
Reynolds. Outside. lst year on the team. XYorked hard but was rather slow
in getting down on kicks. A good tackle at close quarters.
XYurtele. Spare outside. Fast and a willing worker but very inexperienced at
Colvil. Spare line man. Slow but works hard and can tackle.
Balders. Spare half. Has little knowledge of the game as yet but' has some
idea of hitting ailine.
Musk. Spare quarter. Should develop next year.
SCHOOL vs. NEPEAN HIGH SCHOOL
After a little over a week's practice. the school opened the local season at
Ashbury on Viiednesday. September 25th. Nepean were the victors, 2 - O. in a
very close struggle.
Holding our heavier opponents scoreless for the first half, the school weak-
ened long enough in the second to enable Nepean to score two rouges on kicks
In the last quarter, with Dunning out owing to an injured eye. the school.
led by Tyrer, began a forward pass attack which nearly resulted in a score.
Nepean tightened up, however. and ran back a kick twenty yards. as the
whistle blew with our opponents in possession on their own thirty yard line.
The game was productive of some good plays on both sides. while the
kicking, passing, catching and tackling were decidedly good for the first game
of the season.
l48'I THE ASHBURIAN
SCHOOL vs. LOXYER CANADA COLLEGE
Tliis was our first league game, and was played on Saturday, October 5, at
Montreal. L. C. C. was an easy victor with a win of 34 - 1.
.-Xthough the school played well in the first quarter, the second one proved
our downfall as L. C. C. ran wild and secured a lead of 17 - O by half time.
Tie last half of the game saw the school fighting a losing fight, as our
faster opponents added another 17 points to .-Xshbury's 1.
This game showed Ashbury the need for greater surety in tackling. Tyrer
and Bryan played well for the School while Zeller, Clarke and Brooks were out-
standing for our opponents.
SCHOOL vs. OTTAXVA COLLEGE
On XVednesday, October 9th, the School won its first game of the season
when we defeated a team representing Ottawa College, 21 - 8.
A rouge by Heuser was the only point of the first quarter, but after chang-
ing ends the School scored a touchdown when Tyrer managed to get through
our opponents line. Ashbury's scoring for this half ended with Kirkpatrick
kicking a field goal. Ottawa College, however, scored a field goal also: and
the half ended with the School leading 9 - 3.
The last half was barely under way when Tyrer scored another touchdown,
which Kirkpatrick converted. Then Ottawa College began a strong offensive
which climaxed with their scoring a try which was not converted.
The last quarter saw the School start a drive downfield which was success-
ful. as Snelling plunged over for another try, which Kirkpatrick converted, just
as the final whistle blew.
The final score was Ashbury 21, Ottawa College 3.
SCHOOL vs. BISHOP'S COLLEGE SCHOOL
Playing on the McGill campus, Montreal, on Saturday, October 19th, the
School tied with l3.C.S., 6 all in a very exciting game.
The first quarter opened with Bishops kicking off to McCormick who ran
the ball back to the School's 45 yard line. .-Xfter the ball changed hands.
Bisliop's began an attack which gave them a point when McCormick was rouged
on a kick by Lyman. Bishops added another rouge and led by 2 - O at the end
of the first quarter.
The second quarter went scoreless, with first the School and then H. C. S.
being in scoring position. only to loose by a fumble or an off-side penalty.

Starting the third quarter B. C. S. again worked into scoring position and
Lyman kicked a placement for three points. This ended the scoring for the
third quarter, and the School went into the last quarter facing a 5 - 0 score.
No sooner had the last quarter started than B. C. S. scored yet another
rouge and they now led 6 - O. XVith five minutes to play, the School began an
offensive which carried the ball from our own 20 yard line across for a touch-
down, without a single B. C. S. player touching the ball. Paterson literally ran
wild during the attack. He plunged through for gains of ten and fifteen y-ards
continually, and tinally plunged over for the major score.
The School missed the convert, and with about two minutes to play B. C. S.
kicked off to Dunning who ran it back to the School's 50 yard line. A B.C.S. off-
side put the ball at centre field. and from there Dunning kicked a beautiful punt
which bounced over the line and a B. C. S. player was rouged as the final whistle
blew. The final score was School 6. B. C. S. 6,
SCHGOI- vs. LaSALLE ACADEMY
This match, played on the School campus on Friday, November lst. resulted
in a 15 - 12 win for the School. LaSalle started out well and worked up a 11 - O
lead within the first live minutes of play as the result of two beautiful forward
passes which brought touchdowns. one of which was converted.
In the second quarter the School scored a touchdown when McCormick ran
around the end. Kirkpatrick converted it. Then the School scored three points
on Kirkpatrick's placement. Before half time LaSalle scored a rouge on a kick
over the deadline.
The third quarter went scoreless with both teams missing many opportuni-
ties. The last quarter, however saw the School take the lead on a touchdown by
Snelling, which Kirkpatrick converted. This finished the scoring for the game,
but LaSalle made a valiant attempt to win when a 40 yard forward pass nearly
resulted in a touchdown. Only HcCormick's speed saved the day for the School
as he made a beautiful tackle on the school's 20 yard line.

The annual Qld Boys' Game came oPf on October 12th, with the 1935 edition
of the Cireybeards ending up on the short end of the 11 to 7 count.
The school went into an early lead and half-time found the Old Boys
breathing hard and live points down. In the second half the veterans after a
spectacular drive down the lield scored with an on-side kick, Gilmour to
Fanclnier, and after some brilliant argument they were credited with live points.

ponents won rather easily, but Ashbury won the game in Montreal by
the narrow margin of two runs.
ASHBURY AT SELXYYX HOUSE. OCT. 1-l.
Mon 3 - 0.
SHBURY started strongly with the wind and sun behind them and scored
twice within the first few minutes. There was no further scoring until
after half-time. although Ashbury lost several scoring chances. During
the first half the play was all at the Selwyn House end of the held, Barclay not
having a single shot. The second half of the play was much more even.
Grant scored twice and Murray once for Ashbury. Tetrault starred for

.ASHBCRY versus Lt DXVER CANADA Cl Jl.l.lil ilf, NOV. 9th.
Lost 43 - U.
SHBURY were undoubtedly opposed by a much heavier and more ex-
perienced team but this did not excuse the score. Ashbury :lid not play
up to their usual standard and repeatedly let their opponents gain yards.
Musk played by far the best for Ashbury stopping many of our opponents plays
that would have otherwise resulted in a score.
ASHBURY versus OTTAXVA COLLEGE -ICNIORS, AT ASHIECKY
Lost 17 - 0.
The inexperienced Ashburians playing their first game were not able to hold
off their opponents. Ottawa College pressed for the iirst half and scored two
touchdowns. The second half was more even but Ashbury was again unable to
hold off its opponents, and the game ended with Ottawa College winning by 17-O.
MODEL SCHOOL versus ASHBCRY. AT ASHBCRY, NOV. 5.
iVon 12 - 10.
The Ashbury team consisting of light-weight intermediates played excellent
football to win this match. Heuser II scored both Ashbury's touchdowns which
were converted. .
ASHBURY versus OTTAXVA COLLEGE JCXIORS. NOV. 6.
AT VARSITY OVAL.
Tied 5 - 5.
Ashbury played well to hold Ottawa College to three downs on our two
yard line. The position was soon reversed but Ashbury failed to score. Shortly
after half-time Blair ran fifty yards for Ashbury's touchdown. It was not con-
verted. During the last fifteen minutes Ottawa Colleges clever quarter ran
through the whole Ashbury team for a unconverted touchdown. Shortly after-
wards the game ended. The score shows a notable improvement in play. com-
pared with the first game against the same opponents.
ASHBURY versus THE MODEL. AT MODEL

This was a much closer game than the last but we proved too strong for
our opponents though The Model put up a tremendous fight.
Musk and Murray were outstanding for Ashbury in this game.

ASHBURY versus LINDPIXLIZA, AT ASHBURY.
NVon 18 - 10.
A match was played on November 16th, against a scratch local side. The
team showed great improvement in tackling, and fair ball carrying ability.
Touchdowns were scored by Musk, Colvil and Wallace, all three being con-
verted with drop kicks by Wallace. Our opponents showed good form and a
fine sporting spirit.
The Intermediate team finished the season with a record of three wins, a
tie. and two defeats. For a side consisting largely of untried players this is a
Very pleasing result. Consistent improvement in the fundamentals of tackling
and blocking has been shown by the majority of the team. Commendable keen-
ness has been displayed by all concerned and a special word of praise is due to
Musk for his enthusiasm and for his able captaincy, which has helped so largely
in welding the squad into a team.

THE ASHBURIAN lull
U'l'lllNli will so quickly dull the edge of youthful lQt't'llllt'ss as the sense
of aimless labour, of effort spent to no purpose. .X hundred times a vear.
by tongue or eye, or through the mute protest of an ill-written page, we
are asked: XYhy should we study the dead language of a vanished people? What
profit shall we have from hours spent over the dull futility til. .Xlgt-bra? lloes
it help us to know that XYilliam l. loved the tall deer, or that King -lohn in his
rage chewed straw?
'l'o these and many other questions there is one answer. You do not come
to school to learn to be a doctor or a lawyer, an engineer or a chartered accountant.
All these callings need a teclmical equipment which it is the function of a university
or of an apprenticeship to provide. XX'hen yon go to the university or to the
office, you must. if you are to get full benefit, take there a trained mind. The
young mind is like a piece of tempered steel, good material. that must he shaped
and ground and sharpened and polished before it is a useful tool. 'l'he discipline
of Latin, the puzzle of Algebra, the feats of memory that llistory demands are
all part of this shaping and finishing process. You go to school not so nmch In
acquire knowledge as to make your mind so fine and so ready that you will have
later on an efficient tool, that will perform the tasks to which you apply it.
Life has Illiilly things to ofifer besides tlte need and opportunity of earning
a living. The best things are often quite unconnected with work or books-
friendship, fellowship, and the great joy of leading and controlling others in a
worthy enterprise. We need training before we can play a becoming part in the
world of grown men and women. We must round off the edges and smooth over
the roughness of our awkward personalities: we nmst discover when to stand
firm for a principle and when to compromise: we have to get a sense of proportion.
to make sure that we consider ourselves neither too important nor too insignificant.
:Xt boarding school you can learn these things at an age when mistakes are not
disastrous and errors of judgment not fatal. XYhile you are at school, life is
still something of a game: the routine and regulations which govern. and often
seem to cramp your lives are the necessary rules under which the game is played.
In short you come to school in order to learn how to learn. and to practise
on a mimic field the battles that in later days you will have Io right in earnest. If
by the time you have left school you have acquired the habit of work and the
knack of living on good terms with your neighbours, your school days have been
well spent. Do you remember why Tom Hrown's father sent his son to Rugby?
"Nhat is he sent to school for? Well, partly because he wanted so to go. lf
he'll only turn out a brave, helpful, truth-telling Englishman. and a gentleman
and a Christian. that's all I want."

UN IOR SCHOOL NOTES
HERE are very few notes to record this issue. Apart from the earthquake
and the famous l.eunoxville bat, now rapidly assuming the proportions
of a giant albatross, little has happened to disturb the even tenor of our
existence. Even the Newcombe-Hailey feuds seem to have abated in their fury.
We heartily congratulate XYilson. XYilgress. Lawrence and Ronalds on being
On the last day of October we were again invited to Mrs. XYri0'ht's for a
, 6 6
Hallowe'en party. This year it was even more fun than in the past, if that were
possible. At one moment fears were entertained for the safety of Comrade
Newcombe in his zest to capture in his teeth an enormous apple Hoating about in
a tub of water and another anxious moment was experienced when Citizen Yiets.
a blindfolded Sherlock Holmes endeavouring to identify by his sense of smell
various concoctions in various bottles, lingered too long over a bottle of ammonia.
Both, however, recovered at the mention of food.
Another memorable party was that given by Lawrence, when a professional
magician successfully hoodwinked everybody. Messrs. Bronson and Lawrence H.
spent the next day. it is said. trying to initiate Mr. Porritt into the higher realms
of magic. but met with varying success.
On November 16th, lYilson gave a swimming party at the Chateau in
honour of his birthday. There were no casualties and everyone enjoyed himself
Elsewhere in this issue will be found an account of the activities of the
Scout troop. The Juniors have always taken a great interest in the Scouts and
we are glad to have Mr. Brodie as our Scoutmaster this year.
In conclusion we extend a hearty welcome to the New Boys who have joined
the fold this term: Macllonald, MacGowau, Fairbanks and XYindsor. XYe wish
them luck. and a merry Christmas to all.

THE NIGHT EXPRESS
By A. B. R. LAXVRENVIS
'I' IS a very weird experience on some dark and lonely night to hear the long
and dismal hoot of a night express as it approaches some quiet divisional
point. As it nears. we seem to feel the throb uf its power. and we can almost
picture it as it hurtles along the tracks. .Xfter a few moments we see the trees
in the distant darkness suddenly and most gloriously turn from gloomy black
into a lovely. dazzling silver. as the engine's headlight shines on them from around
a curve. The trees stay in this splendour until the headlight throws its glare
down the straight stretch near the station.
Nearing the platform its headlight throws into silhouette all the figures
waiting there: the travellers, their friends and the station otiicials. The house
tops and the tall church steeple look silver in its light. Here. as it shines
across the pastures of some near by farm. the sleeping cows may be seen scattered
about in small groups.
As soon as the train stops the porters jump briskly down with their stools.
and the wooden platform is soon covered with travellers who for a few minutes
enjoy a cool, short amble up and down in front of the station while the engine
is having its tanks refilled. -
After about ten minutes, when everyone has stretched himself and the
brakemen have finished testing the brakes. the engineer waves his lantern. the
porters shout and the train starts moving slowly away. When the train gets
about a quarter of a mile away from the station it blows off steam and after
trying the brakes. it gives its last melancholy hoot. One feels strangely lonesome
as one thinks that the last link with civilization has departed in the dwindling
dots of red at the end of the observation car.
The night express has passed.

AST Spring we played many games among ourselves. and our one annual
match, against the Fathers, was as great a success as ever, even though
we did not win. The following represented the Fathers :-

Grant. Major Owen, Major Duncan, Mr. Lawrence, Mr. johnson, Mr. Edwards,
Mr. Porritt. Phillips and XYhitf1eld.
OT for many years has there heen so glorious an autumn: from the he-
ginning of term until the time of going to press we have heen ahle to
play soccer every school day with only two exceptions, and always on a
dry, fast field.
So much practice has led to a considerahle improvement in' the standard of
play all round. and we have heen further fortunate in heing ahle to arrange
plenty of games with outside teams. Of these games we have won three and
lost two. The trip to Lennoxville was greatly enjoyed: we were hadly heaten hy
a hetter side, hut the long journey and the unfamiliar field no douht magnified
unduly the difference hetween the teams.
.iX. li. R, Lawrence proved a capahle captain: on his day he plays an excel-
lent game and shows good hall control, though he does not always make the
hest use of his opportunities. li. ID. NYilgress has shown himself a clever and
aggressive forward: his three goals against St. Alhan's were all very pretty
foothall, R. XYhitf1eld has proved a consistently steady and cool hack, full of
pluck and a most reliahle man in an emergency. R. XY. lionalds is a clever for-
ward who always went "all out" from first to last whistle.
The eleven was as follows: ifoal, Macdonald. liaclqs. XX'ilson ll and XYhit-

It was an even game, and the play for the first few minutes went from one
end of the field to the other, the goallqeepers not having much to do, In about

fifteen minutes. however. Rlcfiowan scored a good goal for .Xshbury. but about
Five minutes later XYhitfield touched the ball with his hand inside :Xshbury's
goal area. which. of course. meant a penalty shot for St. :Xlban's, They scored.
That made the score l - l.
In the second half the play was quite slow until the last ten minutes when a
St. Alban's man scored, putting the visiting team in the lead Z - l, a lead which
they kept to the end.
ASI-IBURY COI,I..lifili vs. ISISHUIVS L'Ul.l.lil2li PREP. SCHUUI.
.-Xt Lennoxville. l.ost 8 - O.
WIC were not very successful in Lennoxville for liishop's, our opponents,
scored eight goals. while their goal-keeper most etfectively stopped us from
scoring at all.
In the first half, lfishop's. through their long and accurate shooting. soon
scored four goals, but our defence then tightened up and were successful in
keeping them from scoring again in the remainder of the half.
During the interval Lawrence. our captain, changed goalers. taking Mac-
donald out and putting Ronalds in.
IYhen the second half started we played more on the offensive and Blac-
Gowan made many spectacular runs with the hall up the field but the B. C. S.
defence and goalie were always too strong for us and we were not able to score.
The B. C. S. team. however, again pushed through our defence to score four
more goals, and the game ended with a 8 - 0 victory for the Lennoxville team.
ASHBURY vs. ST. ALB.-XN'5
At St. .-Xlban's. XYon 4 - 1.
On October 30th. Ashbury returned victorious from Brockville with a -l - l
victory over St. Albans.
lt was our second victory. but the game was much closer than the score
indicated, and it was only through the spectacular playing of the defence that St.
Alban's scored once.
In the first half the game was fast and XYilgress managed to score three
goals in rapid succession.
The second half was closer and Macdonald. our goaler. made many specta-
cular saves. XYe played more on the defensive this half and our goal was often
in danger but the backs always came to our rescue.
XVhen the game was drawing to an end one of the St. .-Xlban's men scored a
goal, but we were not disappointed for long. for Hailey made a magnificent shot
at goal which beat the goalie.
After that the game was very exciting but no more goals were scored and
the game ended with the score 4 - 1.

THE TRIP TC LENNOXVILLE
UR trip to Lennoxville was a time never to be forgotten, for the luniors
enjoyed two days and a night of marvellous fun,
YVC left Ottawa on the afternoon train on Friday, Oct. 19th, and for 2
brief time everyone was busy admiring the countryside or reading Funny Papers.
But the peace was soon broken for, getting tired of both of the above mentioned
pastimes, numerous struggles began. Luckily we had our own coach, but if a
stranger had happened upon us and had chosen to cast a glance at the far end
of the car he might have compared it very favourably with the lions' enclosure in
Wfhen we changed trains in Montreal, however, things took a change for the
better, for we found ourselves in a Parlor Car. which was not private. so we
had to behave. XVe had dinner on the train and afterwards played cards or read
until we reached Lennoxville.
That night, that memorable night, we slept in the B. C. S. Infirmary, though
'sleptl hardly seems the right word, for it seemed that nobody could get to sleep.
and whispering continued for a long time. Then came a shriek, which was
followed by laughter and more shrieks. The cause was the presence of a bat, of
extraordinary size, which seemed to have come from nowhere. If one had looked
into the room, all one would have seen would have been balls of white in the
middle of a number of beds. The Juniors have always claimed that bravery is
out of place late at night.
Eventually, everyone went to sleep, only to wake with the lark at six in the
morning. Certain adventurous members of our party took the notion to parade
in pyjamas and see the village in bird's-eye view from the Fire-escape of the
building, and, after a climb in bedroom slippers to the top, we stood and sniffed
the fresh breezes. Mr. Porritt, however, sniffed blood, and was soon hot on our
trail. After a night of bat-hunting he did not seem at all pleased at being
wakened so early,
It was a wonderful trip. Bishops needless to say, treated us royally, but
it was a very weary group of Juniors that arrived back in Ottawa on the Satur-
I 701 THE ASIIISURIAN
HOW CQAL IS FORMED
Hy UA VI ll l'lilLLII"S
UAL is formed by leaves and dead trees which have been buried in the
ground for many, many years.
Most coal beds are found in swampy land because the wetness rots the
wood and in this way coal is formed.
Mining coal is a very big job. Men risk their lives working hundreds of
feet under the ground, because nobody knows when one of the underground
tunnels may fall in. liut they have boards bracing them up so it is not really
likely to happen.
Not many years ago they used to have pit ponies, as they were called, to
pull the ca1's full of coal along' the tracks, miles below the earth's surface. Now-
adays, however, they use electric trollies to haul the coal in the mine, and ele-
vators a1'e used to carry the coal to the top where it is ready to be shipped away
to different parts of the world.
Nowadays, too, they use electric drills instead of pickaxes but, of course,
you must not think that pickaxes are altogether out of use because in some
mines they are still used. '
In any case mining is a very big job and when we see a lump of coal put
into the tire we ought to think sometimes of how much trouble it took to bring
it from many feet beneath the ground to our own grate.
Hy GORDON FAH-LBANKS
l,lQ Cowboys need a great amount of skill and, also, have to be quick and
accurate in shooting and lassoing.
The chief cowboy district in Canada is in Alberta, out West, where there
are miles and miles of plains. But now wild cattle do not roam the plains like
they used to in the olden days, because the cowboys have eorralled so many.
liach cowboy must have a gun, a lasso, and a horse, together with saddle
The cowboy in Alberta uses a Western saddle so that there is less chance of
his falling oil and being thrown to the ground and perhaps even being trampled
under foot by his own horse.
The cowboys live in ranches some of which are very large and sometimes
as many as thirty cowboys live on the same ranch.
Cowboys in the olden days used to kill, rob banks, and even steal each
other's horses and cattle, lint they are quieter nowdays and more civilized and
some even have automobiles.
THF ASIIIIVRIAN l 7l l
NE Xlednesday towards the end nl the Suininer 'lit-rin, Klrs. Xlrig-lit gave
a paper-chase for the juniors.
There were two papei'-eliases. one for the liiggt-1' lmys, on lrieyeles, and
the other for the smaller hoys, on foot.
Mr. Porritt, Angus XYilson and Peter Yiets went out earlier in the afternoon
and laid the trail with confetti. They laid many lilind trails on which many were
foolecl, and Angell, who was one of those on foot, still claims to have walked out
to the aerodroine.
One of the ohstaeles was to cross 11 stream across which there was only a
plank. a difficult feat as the hieyele had to he carried across too.
Towards the end of the paper-chase the confetti appeared to have run out.
and it was with difficulty that we arrived at the end. where we had a very nice
picnic, with all sorts of lovely things to eat. After this, those that wanted to.
and those that could, played a little gentle liaseliall, after which the prizes were
distrihuted. Curry won the first prize and Rohert XYilson the second for the
bicycle-chase, and Neweoinlie won the First prize for those on foot.

A successful hnancier once said: A'The hoy
who thinks a dollar is not worth saving
becomes the man who thinks a hundred dol-
lars is not worth saving. and he usually ends
whcre he began-that is. with nothing."
The best way to save is to open a savings
account in the Bank of Montreal, and to
make regular deposits in that account. no
matter how small your deposits may be.
