It was with great pleasure that I learned that this
issue of The Ashburian was to be dedicated to the Old Boys
of the School, and on behalf of the Association I should like
to express our appreciation of this compliment.
It is trite to remark that the School Magazine should
cooperate with the Old Boys' Association. We are, however,
delighted to find the Magazine so anxious to fulfill its job
of making present and past Ashburians a unity, and it is with
the hope that the hundred or more Old Boys who have not yet
joined the Association, and to whom this Old Boy issue is
being sent out, will appreciate what is being done for them
and will, in turn, do everything in their power to boost the
School, of which they should be only too proud.
We have ambitions for the Association, and we are
endeavouring to put it on a sound basis in order that we may
keep all Old Boys posted about the School and form Serving
Committees to help boys leaving the School find employment.
It is exactly twenty-five years since the Old Boys'
Association was formed. It is exactly thirty years ago since
your present Chairman of the Board of Governors left Ashbury.
Frankly, in earlier times the chief function of the Old Boys'
Association used to be its Dinner. Now, however, the
Association has grown up, and it realizes that its
responsibilities do not begin and end solely with a Dinner.
As your President I ask very definitely that every Old Boy of
Ashbury, not as yet a member of the Association, get in touch
with the Association or the School immediately, for each one
of you must admit, or should admit, that you owe that at the
very least to Ashbury.
With best wishes to all Old Boys,
,LQ ULAA1 '
President, Old Boys' Association.

To write a foreword to the number of the Ashburian
dedicated to the Old Ashburians is an honour and a privilege
which is not easy to express. I know that I reflect the
feelings of all when I express their sincere appreciation,
and assure you that through the years we have watched with
great interest the growth of the magazine and have looked
forward to receiving our copies with all the school news it
contains. We wish it every success and the best of luck

relying on the application of the
policies which the Headmaster outlined in his foreword of a

achievement of even better things.

do not like to miss an opportunity of reminding Ashbury Old
that, while the School appreciates their good will and
support, at the same time Ashbury is ready and anxious to do
anything possible to help Old Boys. We here believe very
strongly that our job does not end when a boy leaves the
School. We must continue to watch his career and be ready
to help and advise whenever we can do so to advantage.
There may be a number of Old Boys who, perhaps, are not
in touch with the School and its doings. To those I would say

Finally, may I put in a word about the School as I see
We have good buildings, playing fields and equipment
for the size of the School we aim at, but Schools do not
or fall by their buildings. It is the spirit that is in
them, and the results of their work which count. In this
respect I am very optimistic, as we have a very fine spirit,
among the boys and among the Staff, which has already
shown its influence both in the work and in games, and which,
as it spreads among Old Boys and other well wishers of the
School, will do great things for Ashbury.

My Dear H0ld Boysu,
It was with great pleasure that I accepted the kind
invitation of the Editor to write a Christmas letter to the
H0ld Boysu of Ashbury. And first, may I wish you and your
respective families all the best greetings of this season.
May this Christmas time be for all of you a really happy one,
and may the coming New Year hold in store for you sound health
and increased success in your various callings.
I feel confident that practically all of you retain
pleasing memories of your Old School, and, when the past
floats before your mental vision and you review the time you
passed at Ashbury, there comes to you the hope that the School
is still progressing and is continuing to exert that
atmosphere which in the past influenced for good so many of
the youth of Canada.
As you may have heard, after spending some time in
England, I have returned to live in Ottawa. For three years
I was Vicar of Woodford Halse, a parish situated in the
southern part of Northamptonshire and about 70 miles from
London. Woodford Halse is a village, or, as it would be
called in Canada, a small town, with a population of about
1800 people. It has a very nice old Church built in the
12th Century. While I enjoyed my stay there very much, yet I
am glad to be back in Canada and not far from Ashbury, which
is always so close to my heart.
As the result of a careful investigation, I am so glad
to be able to assure you that the School is now in very good
shape. Our new HHeadH, Mr. Archdale, is a particularly Hliveu
man and is full of enthusiasm for the School. He is, too,
a scholar, and, what is of more importance for a successful
Headmaster, he has a great sympathy for boys and for boy-life.
In his work his one great aim is to bring out that which is
best in the characters of the boys over whom he has the care.
Under his wise guidance I feel sure that the prestige and the
importance of the School will be fully maintained. Mr.
Archdale has under him an excellent staff, all very keen,
and all eager to promote the best interests of the boys, and
the teaching given is thorough and, at the same time, it is
made interesting. The sports and the various physical
activities are being well looked after, and the School's
reputation for athletic prowess is as good as ever.
But, while under our present Head the School is now in
a very satisfactory condition, and any faults and mistakes in
administration have now been remedied, yet we need more boys
in the School, both Boarders and Day-boysg and you, Old Boys,
can do a very great deal towards bringing about this desired
condition. If, beginning now, to-day, each Old Boy will make
up his mind really to work hard in the interests of the
School, if he will determine to commend the School, whenever
opportunity presents itself, and, if between now and next
June, he will resolve to secure at least one new pupil for
the School, then there will be stretching in front of Ashbury
a long period of renewed activity and of revived strength,
and once again it will take its proper place as one of the
great and important Schools of Canada. In some of the other
Schools, there has been brought about this transformation,
almost entirely by the devoted energy and wide-spread activity
of their HOld Boysn. You can do the same for Ashbury.
You will, I know, join me in wishing the HHeadH and his
family, the Staff, the Boys at present in attendance, and all
those closely connected with the Old School a very Merry
Christmas, and may this coming New Year bring to Ashbury
continued success, greater usefulness and a more extended
sphere in its operations.
With my renewed best wishes and my kindest regards,
Yours very sincerely,
l12l THE ASHBURIAN

THE ASHBURIAN l171
This issue of the School Magazine is dedicated to the Old Boys. It is their number.
The editors have done everything in their power to make this number interesting to
the Old Boys of Ashbury, and the Committee of the Old Boys' Association has, in
turn, done all it could to furnish us with information about Qld Boys, and has tried
to produce at least some copy for us from among their members. The result has
been interesting, and though we have not received nearly as many Old Boy articles
as we should have liked, we are pleased to notice that what we are able to print
represents, for the most part, work by Old Boys who have left in the last few years.
This leads one to wonder why that should be. lt seems to us that there are
two reasons why the younger members of the Old Boys' Association should show
greater readiness to write for the Ashburian than the older ones. First they have
left school comparatively recently. Some of their friends may still be at school,
They know the Staff. ln other words their interest in the School is very much alive
as direct associations with the School are not vet broken.
Secondly, the reason for their interest in the Magazine, may, we think, be due to
the fact that in the past few years we have made an honest effort to have the
Magazine written by the Boys themselves, and we have tried, too, by 'means ot
University Letters, to hold that interest when the Boys have left the School.
A few years ago we had occasion to outline editorially the duties and respon-
sibilities of a good school magazine, and expressed the opinion that it should ferret
out latent ability among the Boys, that it should discriminate between various types
of literary ability, and be, in effect, the medium for expression of intelligent thought
among the Boys of the School.
But there is another duty of a school magazine that was not touched upon in
that editorial, and that is its duty to the Old Boys, and, conversely, their duty to it,
A magazine of any school should form a contact between the boys at present
at that school and those who have left, lt should, too, be a link, and a strong one
at that, between the School itself and the Old Boys as a whole, in this particular case
between the Boys here, now, and those who have left, and between Ashbury and the
Gld Boys' Association.
This link, we think, does exist, but how can it be strengthened? That, it
seems to us, is a question of paramount importance, and naturally, therefore, we
have our own views on the subject. For every paying member of the Qld Boys'
l1sJ , THE ASHBURIAN
Association the Ashburian receives a dollar. This helps defray the expense of the
Magazine and the cost of sending out copies to the Old Boys. Now we have often
heard, possibly as an excuse for non-payment of dues, that the Magazine isaof
little interest to Old Boys, and that what interest there is lessens each year after
lt seems to us that the fallacy of this statement lies in the fact that no one dollar
subscription, no set amount of money, could possibly guarantee an interesting
Ashburian to any Old Boy. A successful school magazine, from an Old Boy's point
of view, depends on three things. lt must contain news of general interest about
the School, as well as periodical reports of activities, news of that particular Old
Boy's contemporaries, articles and stories by people whom he knew personally. 5
The first of these three reauisites we try to fulfill to the best of our ability,
but the last two are up to you, the Old Boys of Ashbury. May we suggest a way in
which you could help us? lf all news of Old Boys was sent to the Editor and it was
not presumed that he would find out by near-say or through devious channels,
and if Old Boys would offer suggestions about their magazine-if, in other words,
they would show a greater practical interest in the writing of their magazine, issues
of greater interest to all Old Boys would naturally follow, and their success be

OLD BOYS' LETTERS

To Ashburions, Post ond Presentie
The Old Boys of Ashbury hove been especiolly honoured this veor by the dedico-
tion to them of the Christmos issue of the "Ashburion", ond o request hos been
mode thot we should molce some contribution to the mogozine.
lt is fitting, therefore, thot the ottention of the reoders should be colled to
the work of o mon thot hos done more thon ony other in the building up ond moin-
tciining of the "Ashbury Old Boys' Associotion". This mon is C. J. G. Molson, better
known to his friends os "Jock".
At the inception of the Associotion, in l93O, he wos elected o member of the
Committee. ln l932 he become Secretory-Treosurer, fulfilling the responsibilities
of these joint positions with greot credit until l93'5, when he resigned, feeling thot
his business octivities did not permit him to do justice to them both.
The Associotion thought so well of him, however, ond felt so little oble to
dispense with the help of o mon who hos retoined such on interest in the offoirs of the
School since he left it, in l9l8, thot he wos re-elected os Treosurer, the Secretory-
ship being mode seporote. l-le hos held the post ever since.
l therefore toke the liberty of thonking him, on beholf of the Old Boys' Asso-
ciotion ond, if l moy, of Ashbury itself, for the unselfish woy he hos devoted himself
to this tosk for oll these yeors. Moy there be others willing ond oble to corry on
os he hos done.

This is just a line to express my appreciation of the Ashburian's action in
dedicating the Christmas number to "The Old Boys". lt seems a very short time
since l was in my last year at Ashbury, and yet on counting up it turns out to be
exactly twenty years. At that time-l9l5-l9l8-many boys leaving the School
were going straight into khaki, and we used to feel great pride in hearing and telling
of the activities at the front of those who had been our seniors. Those of us remain-
ing at School were hoping las boys willl that the war would last until we also were
old enough to get there too.
Things were far from dull at Ashbury however, as for instance a certain neigh-
bour of the School would no doubt assure inguirers. This neighbour had an excellent
crop of melons in his garden. One morning on waking, the melons had disappeared!
This episode, however, was not repeated, at least not to the writer's knowledge.
Partly no doubt on account of the l-lead's masterly handling of the situation, and
partly due to the fact that there were no more melons to arouse hungry boysgto
Then there was the fire at Mr. Philpot's house, to which the School turned out
"en masse". The boys emptied the house of furniture and kept the flames in check
until the fire brigade arrived. incidentally, a most successful photo of Mr. Philpot
teaching in class was taken, without his knowledge, by one of the boys. An ex-
ercise book with a hole cut in it big enough for the lens to look through made the
In thinking of Ashbury at that time, however, one's mind always returns to the
central guiding figure of the period- Dr. Woollcombe. By many years of hard work,
and a keen understanding of those under his care, he built up a School through
which we, its Old Boys, are proud to have passed. Both Present and Old Boys can
feel that Ashbury is worthy of their best efforts towards maintaining, undernits
present able leadership, a standard second to none in the Dominion.

Many of the Old Boys of the school who are not contributors to this issue of
The Ashburian no doubt have said to themselves, "l can't think of anything which

When at Ashbury and studying English, my Comps. were always considered foul
and l am sorry to say they still are, nevertheless l shall attempt, aided by Chippy
Reynolds, to let you know a little about the Old Ashburians at McGill.
As an opening we regret to inform you that the large presence of Jim Kirk-
patrick is no longer in our midst, in, fact we might go as far as to say that he is at
the University of British Columbia carrying on with his studies land golfl. How-
ever, although we have lost Jim there are still many left who perhaps you would like
to hear about. Jim Calder is still wandering round, vaguely searching for rocks
Cigneous and metamorphicl, ably assisted by his new recruit, Ed Fauquier. Edward
has gone "snooty" on us lately, and taken a flat which many of us find very useful.
Graham Ferguson took his B.A. last year and is now seeking his fortune wherever
he .can get it. Brother Burbank, or Jack Ferguson to some people, newly appointed
hockey manager is spending most of his time getting the Big Red Team organized.
Art Yuile is now on the McGill track team when he's not learning to fly. Des Black
we usually find reading Life, while Ken Stevenson is sleeping soundly, recovering from
his famous trip to Stockholm where he was amazed by the various institutions.
We have a newly discovered salesman in the person of Reynolds, whose one topic of
conversation is Remington-Rand typewriters. S S
A new arrival is Pete Stanfield, formerly of Dalhousie whom we hope to see
on the hockey team this year. Norm Gillies, also of Dalhousie, is also seen round
the campus, Francis Lyman appears quite often at the Auditorium, Charlie Gale
is still here, studying to be a business man, while the Arts and Engineering buildings
are often graced by the presence of Ian lvlacorauadal, Oliver Whitby and Bill
Fullerton, Bill, by the way has had trouble with his lower left back molar and is going
round with a nicely swollen face. Geoffrey Wright is one of the most studious lads
we know and always has a large pile of books under his arm, whether he uses them
or not is a moot question. Garry Schlemm and George Nation also arrived this year.
Garry's hair is still as sleek as ever.
As for myself there is a great deal l could and could not say, but under the
circumstances, if it is appropriate it is not modest. l hope that all old Ashburians at
IvlcGill have been accounted for, but if not I hope that they will not mind. Time
presses as well as studies, so-A-on with the work.

November 2nd, l937.
It wos two yeors ogo thot l left Ashbury ond every time l return to Ottowo l
look forword to visiting the old school. l om sure oll old boys will ogree, these visits
bring bock memories of mony hoppy doys spent ot Ashbury. We who hove left,
wish Ashbury the very best of luck in this coming yeor.
This yeor ot the Royol Militory College of Conodo, Ashbury is well represented.
ln the Senior closs Hodley ond Polmer ore the old Ashburions. l-lodley, who is o full
fledged Ashburion, is very good in ocodemic work, hoving ploced second in his closs,
but is not so keen on gomes. l-le does however ploy o little soccer. Polmer, who
only went to Ashbury for o yeor or two, is the opposite, being very fond of gomes
ond oll sport. A shodow of bod luck seems to follow him when he ploys gomes, os
once ogoin this yeor he is out of rugby, hoving broken his hond.
ln the next closs, Wilson, MocBrien, ond Stoirs ore our representotives. Wilson
shines porticulorly in his soiling, ond Stoirs in his mothemotics. MocBrien hos been
rother out of everything this yeor os he hod his toe noil removed ot the beginning
of the yeor. l-lowever, we expect to see him in his old ploce on the hockey teom.
The recruit closs boosts of two Ashburions, Lone ond Boker. Lone hos been
ploying o consideroble omount of soccer lotely, ond it is expected thot he should do
well next yeor. Boker showed, during the time he wos ot Ashbury, thot he wos the
studious type, ond it seems os though he will keep thot reputotion for good work
ln our closs there is only one representotive, thot being
Yours very sincerely,

THE ASHBURIAN I ,S I
By D, l3, Wurtele
One of the most importont questions of to-doi ,ttf is the problem of Empire Defy
Why is the Empire increosing its defences to such on extent? Why is it increosirig
Certoin bronches more thon others? Why does the Empire require o defence
progromme ot oll? These ore the questions which neorly every thinking subieci
public's money is being spent eoch yeor on Empire Defence it is o question which
people should consider.
Let us dwell on the question of why the Empire needs o defence Of course
os everyone reolizes ormed force is only one of the mony woys in which governments
try to obtoin the desires of their peoples This force is only used os o lost resort.
As Greot Britoin is the heort of the British Empire its policies will noturolly effect
those of the entire Empire. Englond depends lorgely on her colonies ond other ports
of the Empire for food ond row moteriols in order to exist, Therefore it is neces-
sory to hove o novy to keep sofe guord over the trode routes of her ships, All the
bottles fought in the Greot Wor were for no other reoson. For instonce those in
Belgium were to prevent G-ermony goining the chonnel ports from which they could
operote oction ogoinst the congested shipping in Englond's neorby ports.
This brings us to the second question of why Englond is increosing her forces
to such on extent. As we oll know there is o greot deol of unrest in the world to-
doy ond the feor of wor is greot. The other notions of the world ore increosing
their orms ond, since the Empire is so for flung, o force is required which con cope
with ony notion or groups of notions which might ottock or upset troding,
A moment ogo we spoke of trode routes os being the life blood of the Empire,
ond in order to protect these routes o lorge novy is required, moreover the notf.
requires boses from which to function ond so on ormy is orgonized to protect these
boses. Likewise on oir force is required to sofe guord these boses, ports, ond
congested norrow shipping woters from oir ottock.
From the obove considerotions it seems cleor thot the Empire needs o well
orgonized defence. Conodo should, l think, be prepored, not only for its own
interests, but olso os port of the Empire, to provide o smoll nucleus oround which
we moy build o lorger, more efficient force should the time for its use occur Eegides
providing o defence progromme to sofe guord the Empires' interests, we ore olsc

lessons from the foilure of the Leogue of Notions point out, the only wov left tc
word off wor is to moke eoch notion feor the terrible weopons of the other notions
which mon hos now invented to destroy his fellow. This, o thin golden threod, seems
to be the hope of solvotion for the modern world from wor, Let us hope thot this

T361 THE ASHBURIAN
CEUTA BEFORE THE REVOLUTION
By J. C. Tyrer
fR0prod11cc'd from the Montreal Gazeffej
The small Spanish-African town of Ceuta has recently entered the news at
frequent intervals along with the reports that German technicians are building gun
emplacements for long range artillery that would make Britain's Gibraltar useless
in future naval strategy.
Unfortunately this is as far as the reports go and newspaper readers know
nothing of the beautiful little town of Ceuta and what became of its beauty.
Ceuta, as many a Mediterranean traveller knows, is small, pretty and plumb
opposite the Rock. The town is dominated by a fair-sized fort which sits at the tip
of the peninsula and is populated by Spaniards, Moors and nondescripts, one English-
man and a handful of Europeans.
As one approaches the harbor of Ceuta the clean-cut lines of the Moorish
architecture strike the eye first and foremost as a reflection of an ended domination.
But as the ship draws nearer, the sharpness of feature fades slowly and the brighten-
ing sun clearly shows the town in all the filth and dusty stagnation that have followed
a centralization of thousands of poor and ill-kept people of various races.
A noisy autobus takes the visitor into the town for a few cents and after a short
trip through the well-laid gardens of the richer inhabitants who live on the outskirts
of Ceuta we are thrust from the bus by its motley passengers into the teeming mass
of people who are rushing here and there to make their purchase before the hour for
siesta curtails life everywhere in the town.
Looking out across the waters from the principal square the majority of Gibraltar
looms in the distance, and closer, in the harbor, a variety of ships that defy descrip-
tion await their fishermen-owners or take on fuel. To the right the imposing hill
on which the garrison is stationed looks over the entire town, commanding the land
around the coast. ln the rear of the town are the barracks of the soldier-police
who patrol the town in armed squads, never singly, giving cause for British disgust
and a silent prayer for the sanctity of the "bobby,"
In the square one sees the best cross-section of life in this odd little town, for
everyone passes through it to reach his home or business. The women, with
their beautiful black hair colored a yellowish brown, are testimony to a
vain effort to ape the American movie star to be seen at the local cinema. The
men, Spaniards and Moor, leave their stores and handiwork to idle over their wine
and listen to radical theories. lt is here, too, that one hears the lottery sellers
screaming their wildest and the losers cursing their loudest. ln the American Bar
at one corner Moor and Spaniards rub elbows with vendors and beggars of many
THE ASHBURIAN it 7,
shades. Here, too, is the chicken merchant who brings his wares up to the table
of a prospective customer and invites him to give it a iab in the ribs ta feel
much meat there is, Always close by is the professional beggar, male or female,
with a story in any language that demands courage by the resistant, The female
of the species usually drags along an emacioted child and this invariably touches the
'heart of even the hardest of tourists. Once the coin has been passed, everyone iri
the Cafe breathes a sigh of relief, for another American has been skinned, and
"praise be to Allah," what better thing could happen?
Leaving the bar the visitor follows the mass movement to find himself being
pushed towards the soldiers' barracks. There are few automobiles, conseauentlg,
the road is little more than a sidewalk, Every now and then a car plows through,
paying little attention to the pedestrians, who need not look to assure themselee
of the driver, for the army officers are the only ones privileged to speed arourd if-
On reaching the crest of the town on which the barracks stand one must pass
through the business section, Here, clustered more or less in bunches one finds a
number of interesting institutions. Perhaps the most interesting are the private
exchanges where the innocent tourist gets about half the value of the dollar
Urisatisfied with his tourist-fleecing, the numerous bankers also play havoc with
Spaniards leaving for foreign lands by a reverse process.
A little beyond are the town's leading cinemas, where for a few pesetos such
pictures as Cimmaron and Rasputin and the Empress are offered to the discriminating
Ceuta movie-Qoer. Only a short distance up hill from here is the crest of the town
and from here the view is all-comprising.
The tiny harbor, the fishing boats, the guaintly garbed soldiers, the ragged
children and the turbaned Moors all lie within easy view. Beyond it all stands
proud Gibraltar, shrouded with soft white clouds. And although the town still rings
with the deadly destruction of both Loyalist and Rebel bombs, there still must be
some semblance of the Ceuta that was, before the Revolution.
Tyrer left Ashbury in June l936, and while at School was an Editor on the staff
of The Ashburian.

Son of Newly Appointed Director of Signals, Who Only Recently Moved to Capital,
Gets Hero Award for Life-Saving at Peggy's Cove, N.S.
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 29.-Four Canadians will receive bronze medals in recog-
nition of acts of bravery from the Carnegie Hero Fund Commission.
Three of them-Earnshaw, Miss Luton and Hertzberg-attempted to save
Margaret Metzler, 40, and helped to save Thomas E. Brown from drowning in Peggy's
Cove, NS., July l2, l936.
Washed From Rock.
Mrs. Metzler was washed from a flat rock at the shore of the Atlantic ocean
and lost consciousness while drifting in open water. Earnshaw took off his outer
clothing and swam 60 feet to the woman, but he was unable to get her to the rock
because of the strong backwash.
Miss Luton swam to his aid but together they were carried back from the rock
each time they approached with Mrs. Metzler. Hertzberg, attempting to clasp
their hands near the rock, slipped into the water.
Brown, who had only one arm, also fell into the water while trying to help
the others to regain the rock. Miss Luton and Earnshaw supported Brown until he
was taken into a boat. Mrs. Metzler was pulled to shore by a rope but was not
Eric P. Earnshaw is the l7-year-old son of Colonel Phillip Earnshaw, newly
appointed director of signals of the Department of National Defence, and Mrs.
Earnshaw and lives at Tl Thomas street, New Edinburgh. The family moved to
Ottawa only six weeks ago from Halifax.
Eric is at present a student at Ashbury College, Rockcliffe and is studying to
try the naval entrance examinations next spring. ln Halifax he was patrol leader
and King Scout in the Ninth Troop of Halifax and had qualified for and received

Ashbury College prize giving on Saturday afternoon, when in view of the former
prime minister's passing, the usual school closing exercises were not fully carried
Cricket and tennis matches and an old boys' luncheon had been arranged, but
in order to allow the guests to attend the funeral these and other activities were
curtailed to an informal tea at 4.30 o'clock and the prize giving, which took place
in the gymnasium.
Despite this there was a large attendance of parents, former students and
guests for the event. Present on the platform were Major E. F. Newcombe, Chair-

By l. A. Barclay, Captain l938 i
Last term a new wicket was laid, Considered one of the best in Eastern Canada.
Composed basically of stone dust it should afford little excuse for unintentional off
line bowling next season.
The School benefited greatly by the expert and energetic Coaching of Mr. Brain,
who devoted much of his time and patience to the team.
Owing to the fact that there was a new pitch and many newcomers, the team
was slow in finding form. The batting was weak at the start, but improved as the
season went on. There was a good standard in bowling, however, throughout the
season, and good individual fielding, though it was inclined to be erratic at times.
Out of six games played, we won two, drew one, and lost three, winning our
annual games with L. C. C. and the Old Boys, but losing to Bishop's College School.
Last year's eleven was a young one, but its keenness and the experience gained
should be of great value, and this, we think, ougurs well for the Summer term.
By l-l. D. L. Snelling, Captain.
A. C. DUNNING lViCe-Captainl 3rd year on team. A good forcing bat with some
really good off shots. Kept wicket well although it was not his natural place
on the field.
l-l. J. RONALDS 3rd. year on team. A really good forcing bat, but at times was

but at times effective style. Very quick in the field and a good throwing arm.
MCCALLUM l Znd. year on team. Good stylish bat who possesses a good straight
drive. Shows promise as a bowler. Rather slow in the field. S

HOME vs NEPEAINI HIGH SCHOOL
The game was played on the afternoon of Friday, October Bth. This was the
first game of the season for Ashbury, and at first there was not a great deal of con-
fidence among our players, but as the game proceeded they soon saw that they were
just as powerful as the opposition.
Wallace opened the scoring for the School by running fifty yards through the
entire Nepean team, to score a try which was not converted, the kick being
blocked. The next Ashbury score came after a steady march from mid-field.
After three ineffectual attempts to buck across the line, the "enemy" gained posses-
sion. They kicked desperately on first down to get the ball out of danger. Brown
blocked the kick, and Burrows leapt on it from behind the line. The convert again

On October l6th, Glebe Collegiate Juniors played an exhibition game with the
Senior team. The teams were evenly matched and the final issue of the game was
in doubt until the final whistle blew.

On October 30th, the team journeyed to Montreal to play L.C.C. The field
was rather soggy and there was a gale blowing.
L.C.C. kicked off and although we had the advantage of the wind we only
succeeded in obtaining one point in the first quarter, Murray kicking the ball over
the dead line. We were unfortunate in this quarter in losing our Captain, whose
shoulder was dislocated.
ln the second quarter L.C.C. scored a well-earned touch down, which they con-
verted, and were promptly presented with another by a fumble an our own goal line.
They converted this and added another single before half time, making the score

The finol score of 24-3 wos most disoppointing to us. ln spite of the foct thot
we suffered heovily through injuries, losing Viets for the gome in the first few
minutes, ond being without Borden, Murroy ond Phillips for o lorge portion of the
time, we should hove given o much better occount of ourselves. We foiled to tote
odvontcige of scoring opportunities on the mony occosions when we were within stnlf-
ing distonce, ond gove our opponents ten points by inexcusoble misunderstondings
when in C1 position where they were most costly. If Ashbury hod ployed the some
footboll on their own ond their opponent's gool lines os they did in mid-field the
results would hove been much less unfovouroble.

THIS YEAR OF GRACE
By .l. C. Viets
The men of the ancient Egyptian civilization of three thousand Years before
Our Lord were capable of building huge pyramids, thousands of feet high and cover-
ing acres of land, without, as it seems, the use of a single derrick. These men,
too, evolved a calendar based upon the movements of the sun. Inroads were also
made by them into the study of Geometry, and our numbers and letters have remained
the same since they were adopted by the people of Ancient Egypt before the days
After the Egyptians came the Romans. This great race built up, and ruled
over, a huge empire for hundreds of years. They developed a high state of culture,
many of them living in absolute luxury. Some of the cities which they founded were
so firm that they have lasted to this day. Roman roads, as well as cities, are still
in existence, and the communication along these roads was swift and sure. They
also had efficient systems of irrigation and sanitation.
Those were primitive times.
Today, in l937, most of the land on the face of the earth has already been
discovered and developed, the more for countries to fight over. Huge aeroplanes
have been developed for commercial purposes, but they can, at a moment's notice,
be turned into war machines capable of destroying whole cities. Mighty liners are
being constructed to span the Atlantic in four days, but they are being built to
government specifications suitable for sudden conversion into battleships and cruisers,
When one strong country annexes one which is weaker, there are none capable, or
willing, to aid the offended country, and unrest prevails among all small countries.
Every nation is manufacturing, with all possible haste, such diabolical weapons of
war as only the mind of civilized man can conceive. The world is like a class-room
of unruly schoolboys, lacking only courage to fly at each other's throats.
These are civilized times.

"Now get out of here before I kick you out."
Police Sergeont Ogilvy of the New York police deportment stood in the office
of his Chinotown stotion. I-Ie wos threotening o little shrivelled-up chinomon, who
cowered in o corner of the room.
"Yes, I go. I go vellee quick, yes."
"I-lurry up then, you rot."
"You will not let me soy here, no?"
"But pleose, it is snowing hord out there in the street."

The Sergeont looked os if he wos going to hit the little Chinomon.

"My whot o night. lt's certoinly lonely here. l'd give onything to be ot

Suddenly there come to the Sergeont's eors obove the noise of the wind the
sound of o woil.

"Take that, you louse."
To the horror of the Sergeant the log seemed to stop in mid air, and the China-
man grasped it. The rough log of wood turned into a beautiful blue cross which
the Chinoman raised.
"Follow me, O foolish one."
"What are you?"
"I was a man, but the night was cold, O foolish one."
'I was a man' What do you mean by that?"
"The night was cold."
"What have I done to you?" h
"You killed me, foolish man, and now you shall follow me."
The little Chinaman backed out of the door, holding the cross before the hyp-
notized face of the Police Sergeant. The door slammed behind them. The wind
shrieked and the rain fell.
A week later the body of Sergeant Ogilvy was found on the bank of the Hudson
River. lt was said that the officer had been in ill health for some time, and in a
moment of despair had thrown himself into the icy waters. In any case he was
given a fine funeral, attended by most of his Division in the Force.

lt was August in Chicago. The hot Chicago sun beat down with ever increas-
ing fury upon the scorched streets. Weary people strayed aimlessly through Grant
Park. Across an open space, stripped except for the empty benches, stood the
famous band shell. Although the Park was very auiet on this hot morning, the band
shell was a hive of activity and noise.
The musicians sat about in their shirt sleeves, and on the heads of many were
perched big paper soldier-hats. Gver the head of the conductor was a large bril-
liantly coloured sun umbrella. As for the conductor himself, he was the hottest thing,
one would have thought, in the whole of Chicago on that particular morning. l-lis
flimsy shirt clung wet to his body as he ranted about, waving his baton. With all
power and fury he was conducting "The Road to Mandalay."
Suddenly he stopped. l-le cracked his baton wildly on the desk, and shook with
"No-no-nal" he fairly screamed. "Terriblel Terrible!"
His whole body shook with emotion.
"That is bad. Well, again,"
Shaking his head as if his grief was overwhelming him, he lead the orchestra'
through the piece again. Over and over again the men played the same bars.
Over ond over the conductor raved and ranted.
"Men lease. lt must have more 'umpa', more 'umpa.' Now, again Yes
This continued for some time, until the orchestra had achieved some of the
desired 'umpa' - Finally the conductor stopped, and stepped from the podium,
"lt is terrible. We'll never have it ready for tomorrow night."
I-le gathered up his music and strode away,
lt is to be wondered if any of the listeners to the orchestra accompanying
Rubinoff and his Violin on August 2-ith, realized that the 'umpa' effects in "The
Road to Mandalay" were struggled for in Grant Park on a hot autumn morning

Admiral of the Fleet Prince l-liroto Kobe was addressing a colourful array of
high-ranking, Japanese officers in the ward-room of the flagship Sun Yet Sen.
"As is indicated on the map, the Nipponese fleet is at present approximately
six hundred miles due east of Shanghai, and proceeding at thirty knots."
The officers gathered round a large map.
"The capital ships will continue in line on the present course, when they should
reach Shanghai in twenty hours. Commander, will you step forward please?"
A smartly uniformed officer stepped up to the table.
"You will place your cruiser flotilla on the arc of a circle, radius one hundred
miles, and centre Shanghai."
"I understand, Sir." The officer withdrew.
lt was twenty hours later. Over the city of Shanghai screeched sixteen inch
shells. The inhabitants ran hither and thither, praying that the Japanese dogs
would have mercy.
On board the Sun Yet Sen, Prince Kobe watched the shelling of Shanghai through
"By the time l've finished with that place it will look like an ash heap. Boy,
bring my breakfast."
By now the city of Shanghai was a mass of flames. l-leavy brick walls fell into
the crowded streets, a shell burst amid a crowd of school children, another knocked
off the corner of a hospital, while yet other shells ripped through the large apart-
ment houses in the residential section. From the Bund to the International Settle-
ment Shanghai was a doomed city.
On board the Sun Yet Sen Prince Kobe sipped his coffee. Suddenly but
deliberately the Admiral rang the bell. l-lis face was livid with fury.
"Boy, take this coffee away. lt is stale."

THE TUMULT AND THE SHOUTING DIES
By G. Green
On the l2th of May, l937, King George the Sixth and Queen Elizabeth were
crowned in Westminster Abbey, The world was gathered there to watch, Mounted
Police from Canada, native cavalry from India, and troopers from Australia and
South Africa were all present to pay homage to Their Maiesties, The entire Empire
had been looking forward to the Coronation for months and every hotel and board-
ing-house in London was filled with people from every land who had desired to
watch the event of a lifetime.
On the great day itself, the streets were covered with decorations, fireworks
exploded, soldiers marched, and police formed chains to hold back the surging
crowds. The time came, and Their Majesties were greeted with loud cheers. They
passed into the Abbey and three hours later returned to Buckingham Palace, crowned,
That night, London went wild, The entire city remained awake and celebrated
Beer flowed and fireworks lit the sky.
Then came the dawn, and with it the sudden realization that "it" was all over.
"lt" which they had waited for for years, or so it seemed, was over, The idea was dif-
ficult to grasp. lt had been such a real, solid thing, the subject of all conversation
and now, it was no more, a thing of the past which would not be repeated for the
lifetime of King George. Already street-cleaners were abroad, sweeping the sea
of refuse into their carts and tearing down mutilated decorations.
Of course, it was true that the Coronation balls and reviews would extend into
July, but what were they compared with the great spectacle which they had just seen
and now would never see again?
Several weeks passed. Stands were being torn down and the decorations had
been done away with long ago. l-louseholders were trying to sandpaper the red
paint off their front doors and the authorities were adding figures in an endeaxour
to find the total expenditure, The streets seemed bare and drab without that aai,
red, white and blue covering, What had life been like in that last week before
the Coronation? A glorious whirl, in which slapping paint in larger auantities on
your own house than your neighbour's and pushing panting visitors from one hotel
to another, figured largely, Now, however, that wonderful life was gone?
So was the Rajah of wha-cha-may-call-it, having exhausted his bank account
in trying to thrill the populace. Those great statesmen from overseas were no
longer being driven through crowded streets, but were giving their views on
world peace in some dusty chamber.
The King and Queen were in the north of England. So, what reminder of the
Coronation was left? That little Union Jack which vou waved frantically? That

And climbed into the rigging
And shouted out to sea-
"We're pirates hold and fierce,
fWe men of the Nancy Lee,j
And when we sight a prize
She seldom gets off free."
But while up in the rigging,
fThe Men of the Nancy Lee,1
Were killed by the guns of the merchant ship,
And sunk in the depths of the sea.
But still they sail the seven seas,

Though now but ghosts upon the ship
That was sunlf by the prize-to-he.

Come with me and I will show you
Beauties of a bygone day,
Ancient castles wreath'd in splandour
Wind-swept shore and shelter'd bay.
I will show you fields of glory,
Ruins of a cloister'd cell.
All of England is a story,
If you lfnow the truth to tell.
There are alnbeys and cathedrals,
Sacred spots but seldom seen.
Here lie conquering and conquered,
Martyred saint and Virgin Queen.
Fishing hamlets, mighty strongholds,
Lonely lalfe and windy mere,-
England-fairest of the nations-
Land of all that we hold dear.

A SECOND-HAND BOOK SHOP
By G. Green
There may be buried treasure in the Caribbean, pearls in the East Indies and
varied riches scattered all over the earth, but to my mind, the best place to look for
old treasures in a second-hand book shop.
You all know the kind I mean. The old wooden shop with the dusty windows
through which you can see into the shop itself and into the mysterious darkness at
the back, the shop marked with faded gold letters and whose windows are decorated
with "Godey's Ladies Fashions of l853" and filled with old books telling of the Civil
War or the Boer War, with boxes of old coins at the side and an ancient rifle leaning
in a musty corner.
lnside you trip over an old pair of book ends, evidently used as a door stop and
find yourself hugging a large counter of horror magazines, issues of l9l2, 'selling at
three for five centsl. Against the wall stands a large rack holding faded editions
of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," "Eric, or Little by Little," "World Peace in lS5O?" "Debates
of the l-louse of Commons, l87O" lin ten volumesl and so on. ln a dark corner
stand souvenirs of King Edward Vlll's Coronation, the last attempt of the old shop
to keep up with the times.
However, these are as nothing to what you may find in the back, The old
shop curves there and makes a dark musty corner, A stuffed monkey clutches a
decaying stump and high on a shelf stands a bouauet of wax flowers protected bn
a glass bell, A spinning wheel lies in several pieces under an old table and a gold
mounted horse pistol hangs trom the wall lt would be wise not to touch this, for
it probably has not been cleaned since l79'f and nobody knows what may be in its
And then the proprietor, he comes forward from a little door in O ClOfl4 COVWQV,
which leads to his miserable rooms above, peering shortsightedly over his spectacles
and brushing back his wisps of hair, The old man looks as musty and old as his
books, with his wrinkled face, and he might well, for he was 'bred an' born' in the
shop. That was after his father had inherited it, l-le keeps the old shop now as
it was then, blissfully unconscious of the advancement of time Gnd dO?-' Cliff C30-

UP BETIMES, AND SO TO BED
By D, M. Stewart and W. A. Grant.
Up betimes, and to take a walk. But my gout did prevent me, so hired a
hansom carriage and did let the horse do the walking, thereby conserving energy. A
dull day, and so toward the grammar school to inspect the premises. The time nigh
on nine o'clock, l did attend Junior roll-call, mighty troublesome. Thence we did
to chapel and did sing a hymn right lustily, but several people, as well might be, did
mistake the tune, which troubled the organist mightily. I did look into divers
classrooms where samples of modern youth were contemplating various holiday
doings or engaged in the complete relaxation of the mind, while masters did ex-
pound theories and other higher thoughts to the thin air. And we did visit a class
wherein mathematics was being propounded, and by the vacant look on juvenile
faces it did occur to me that they must all be engaged in its complete absorption.
Thence to partake with joy of Recess where some clumsy lout did trip over my gouty
leg and it did vex me. But presently with walking the pain did pass away and
was soon gone. And I was able to go to the ping-pong room where I did get soundly
beaten. But did console myself by stepping on my opponent's ball which did
flatten it as flat as ever I did see in my life. Next did go to a class of alchemy,
whence we were driven in due time by obnoxious odours and sharp reports, pro-
claiming the success of fundamental experiments. I was prevailed upon to demon-
strate the method, known only to us older scientists, of extracting gold from the
most common the metalic substances. As the substance of my choice did happen
to be explosive powder, and as l did therefore demolish the laboratory to a finality,
I was prevailed upon with more ardour than before to leave. And I did become
huffy and did leave with the greatest alacrity, and on arriving at my hostelry, being
unduly weary, did order a good supper, a capon, not cooked to taste but palatable,
some rare marrow lmighty finel and a pint of sack. My gout better, but my wife
insisted on my resting my leg, and so to bed.

THE WAGES OF SIN
By W. A. Grant.
"Hands up!" The oft imagined words, the terror of bank clerks, rang out in
the routine stillness of the little country bank, With an oath the bandit pointed his
gun at the solitary occupant of the cage, forced him to open the door and allow the
bandit to enter. Once inside the intruder made short work of the man. Soon only
a securely tied and gagged figure remained as guardian of the till, l-lastily the
robber scooped up all the money he could lay his hands on and stuffed it into the
Satchel he had brought with him. Then waiting only to kick the teller back into
insensibility he turned to go when he caught sight of a brown leather bag very
similar to the one he was carrying. Stooping down, he picked it up, more out of
curiosity than the hope that it might obtain xaluables, and rushed out to his car
At a small table in the ill-lit room sat a man smoking, By the impatient way
he scowled out of the window he was obviously waiting for someone, l-le tapped
his fingers on the table and then poured himself another drink. l-le paused, the
glass halfway to his lips, as a car drew up to the doorway and stopped with a screech
Three men, carrying two brown leather bags, entered
"Were you followed?" spoke the man from the chair,
"Not a hope. Shifty is too smart for those cops." and with a muttered word
consigning the same cops to a warmer climate, he threw the bags on the table.
The man called Shifty walked forward and proceeded to open the first bag.
"Well, share and share alike I suppose, although l dunno what's in the other
When the money had been counted the men turned their attentions to the
second bag. The lock prooved obstinate, despite the obvious skill of one of the

l88I THE A.SHl5L'Rl,-LN
THE ASHBURIAN l89l
We are fortunately situated, we Editors of the Magazine, for most of the work
connected with its publication is done in a room comparatively removed from the
main building. But occasionally, when the typewriter is not clicking, and arguments
about copy and type have for the moment died down, we hear a sound as of a herd
of elephants on a tour of inspection of the School.
One day we decided to investigate. We were wrong, lt was not elephants,
just Juniors, on their way up stairs to the Art Room.
Curiosity made us follow, and the half hour spent in watching them at work
supplied food for thought for many a long day, l-lere, is seemed to us, was something
of the utmost significance. Boys, ranging in age from eight to twelve, were being
encouraged to draw, to Daint, and to cut in linoleum anything that their minds
seized upon as suitable subjects for reproduction. Some of the results are to be seen
in these pages.
Now we know that few if any of the Juniors will follow the profession of paint-
ing as a livelihood, but some, we hope, will continue to take an active interest in the
arts long after they have left the Junior School. Of all hobbies, an intelligent interest
in art in one or all of its many forms-painting, music, sculpture, architecture-is
probably the most worth while, certainly the most repaying, and the realization that
you can appreciate a work of art is in itself a most satisfying thing, not because of
any advantage it may give you over your neighbours, but because you know that you
have had to learn to know what to look for in, say, a picture, before you could ap-
preciate it properly. You have had to learn, in other words, the art of appreciation,
That, we think, is the mission of the Art Room. As the Juniors learn what to
put into a lino-cut and what to leave out, as they learn what must be cut away and
what left to give the desired effect, so they are learning the elements of appreciation
and Criticism. There may be no future Raphael among the Juniors,
"flaming out his thoughts
Upon a palace wall for Rome to see,"
but if the Art Room can teach a boy to like seeing pictures, to admire a good use
of colour, it will have done something of real value for the School, and, more im-
portant than that, it will have opened up a marvellous vista, down which the Boy
should be able to see a splendid hobby and future source of infinite pleasure.

UTHOU HAST NO BUSINESS HERE"

There wos once o Quoker who wonted to go from Boston to Englond, for some
reoson or other, ond so he tried to get o possoge on o merchont vessel. Unfortunotely,
however, Britoin ond Fronce were ot wor ot the time, ond he hod greot difficulty
in getting ony occommodotion ot oll. Finolly he wos ollowed to soil in o British

A week ofter this boot hod left the shores of the Colony behind her, she wos
sighted by o French mon o' wor, ond the two boots engoged in bottle. Now, os
you know, Quokers never fight, so they never become soldiers or soilors. The two
ships opprooched closer, ond everybody fought for their lives, oll except the Quoker,
who wolked colmly up ond down the deck omid the fire of the connons, with his
honds closped firmly behind his bock.
The ships groppled together, ond the Quoker turned oround ond wotched the
first Frenchmon climb on boord. Wolking up to the Frenchmon he soid, "Friend,
thou host no business here." With thot he picked up the stortled Frenchmon ond
threw him over the side into the seo.

But if our country goes lo war
Will we fight?

We'll gladly fight."
