i261 THE ASHBURIAN
Kappa Alpha Society,
October 28th l937.
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.
Yours very sincerely,
