ASTING round for something to say, after the Editor had been reft away
to England leaving the Editorial unwritten, we heard about the appoint-
ment of Guy Simonds to lead the Canadian Troops invading Sicily. The
first re-action was one of pride, that an Old Ashburian had been so honoured.
Then it occurred to us that it is such achievements by Old Boys which should
spur on present and future Ashburians to greater zeal, greater initiative, greater
There are Qld Boys of this school in high and responsible positions, to name
them would not only be boasting, but invidious, How did they get there? Not
by drifting, playing, frivolity, expecting their work to be done for them, but by
energy, drive, initiative, intelligence and real hard work. Taking Guy Simonds
again, one doesn't reach the rank of Major-General at the age of 39 without
showing these qualities. One doesn't reach and hold high office in service or
civilian occupation without these qualities. Supposing we think of the many
Old Boys who may not have attained high office, but are doing very worth
while iobs commanding Brigades, or Battalions, or Ships, or Air Stations, or are
working in various branches of the War effort. ln addition to these there are
hundreds doing their bit in even less exalted positions. All of these old Ash-
burians from top to bottom are giving their best for their country, some, we
must not forget, have already given their lives.
What are we Ashburians now doing? Some of us we fear, are only in-
terested in having a good time, doing little work, complaining about trivial
matters. Should we not think of what Qld Ashburians are doing, how well
they are upholding the name of the school, and then prepare ourselves to give
and do likewise? How, you ask? By hard work mainly, combined with the use
of co-operation, intelligence and initiative.

NOTHER successful year of activity in the School Chapel has been
recorded, and we must pay tribute here to Mr. Boon, who as School
Chaplain has done so much to bring this about. He will be missed
greatly next year. We wish him and Mrs. Boon the very best of luck in the
future and hope they will visit Ashbury often.
There were twenty-two services of Early Communion during the school year,
at which the average attendance of communicants was eight. The choral cele-
brations, instituted last year, were again held once a term at ll o'clock.
The customary eleven o'clock celebration of Matins was held each Sunday,
and we were honoured often by the presence of the boarders from Elmwood.
We were again privileged to have an address by the Right Reverend Briga-
dier G. H. Wells, CMG., M.A., D.D., Principal lProtestantl Chaplain to the
Canadian Forces, who on February Zlst, l943, spoke on Discipline, using the
Commando Training and results as an illustration.
Once again there was a series of special addresses during Lent, this year
the Four Freedoms of the Atlantic Charter were selected. Mr. Boon spoke on
Freedom from Want, Mr. Brain on Freedom of Worship, Mr. Harrison on Free-
dom from Fear, and the Headmaster on Freedom of Speech.
As usual Mr. Harrison and Mr. Brain gave addresses during the Michaelmas
Term, which were much appreciated.
ln September, the Chalice presented by Michael Ney, chapel monitor i940-
4l -42 was formally dedicated by the Chaplain.
On June lOth, the Baptismal Bowl, presented by the i943 Confirmation
Class, was dedicated by the Chaplain.
We were pleased to see in chapel, and hear read the lesson on January
24th, Dick Goodwin, Head Prefect l94l -l942. During the year Lawrence read
the maiority of the Morning Lessons assisted by Lee, Barnes and Heaven.
We want to emphasize our gratitude to Miss Shorter for her faithful at-
tendance, and excellent playing of the Organ throughout the year. .
On May l2th, at 8 p.m. the Bishop of Ottawa, Right Reverend Robert
Jefferson, B.D., D.D., confirmed eleven boys, together with some external candi-
dates presented by Rev. Northcote Burke of St. John's Church, and Rev. Eric
Osborne of St. Matthew's Church, both in Ottawa. The Rev. W. Bertal Heeney,
BD., D.D., acted as Bishop's chaplain and read the lesson.
The short Evening Service, held just before the closing ceremonies, again
impressed those who attended, and we were all glad to see Dr. Woollcombe
present and taking part. The majority of the addresses were given by the
Chaplain and the Headmaster.
The chapel clerks, Michael Barnes, and especially Peter Hatch, are to be
commended for the work put in and care taken of the Chapel and its contents.
By the time this appears in print we hope that the new Prie-Dieu, kindly
presented by Elmwood, will be in place in the chapel, and we take this oppor-
tunity of publicly saying thank you.

T101 THE ASHBURIAN
l-llS year brought the usual crop of changes in staff, that the war seems
to cause. A Even with the number of changes we've had here, we are better
off than some schools, who've had three different men teaching top
Latin in one year, ln September we welcomed Mr. l-lincks for Maths. and
Science, Mr, Buchanan for French, Mr. Travers for Cadet Corps and General
Subjects, and Mr. Chestnut for General Subjects.
At Christmas lvlr, Polk had to leave to join the US. Marines, and took
with him the best wishes of all at Ashbury, not to mention regrets. Mr. Buchanan
also left to take up a position at Upper Canada College.
In January we were joined by Captain Dare, to replace Mr, Buchanan, and
Mr. Belcher, in place of Mr. Polk. As we had been previously understaffed, the
arrival of Mr, Walsh, to teach general subjects, was also a welcome relief.
On the I-lealth and Domestic side, Mrs. Arnold, joined us as l-lousekeeper,
and Mrs. Fraser came as under matron.
ln October, Shaw, departed on the first stage of his journey to England
and his post as Junior l-louse Monitor was taken over by Price. Unfortunately
Shaw's ship was sunk, though happily for him before he got on board, and it
was not for several months that he finally got across.
Just before the end of the Christmas term, at the suggestion of the
Prefects, Evening Chapel was changed to 6.45, immediately after tea, instead
of at B.l5. The idea was to avoid the interruption to evening study, particularly
for seniors. General opinion seems to favour the change.
We were very sorry that Mrs. Boon was seriously ill before Christmas, but
are glad to say she fully recovered long before these words were penned.
Captain Dare, was unfortunate enough to get pneumonia severely, not long
after his arrival, and spent some time at the Civic l-lospital. l-le made a good
recovery however, and was back at school in harness before the end of the
Chris Prance was unlucky enough to break his leg early in the skiing sea-
son, and its obstinacy in mending, kept him out of action all the winter. We
hope he'll have better luck next year.
The boys had to turn to and do most of the housework during the Christmas
term, and again towards the end of the year. This included room cleaning,
dining room cleaning and washing up. They set to with a will, and now should be
very useful in their homes.
We were lucky in avoiding any heavy epidemics, getting a few cases of
mumps at the end of the Christmas term. We hear there were several more
during the Christmas holidays.
An admirable innovation at this year's dance was the presence, on invita-
tion of the l-lead Boys of Glebe Collegiate, Lisgar Collegiate and the Technical
School. We hope this will be a permanent feature.
lt snowed this year first on October 26th, two days later than last year,
but it more than made up for those days by its depth and quantity during the

winter, The oldest inhabitant we could find, one over 83, could remember
nothing like it.
We congratulate Ivlr. Lucas, tStaff l938l on his marriage recently to
Mics Jessie Emmett. l-le is now a Flight Lieutenant, R.C.A.F., and while on a
visit to Rockcliffe Air Station, renewed his acquaintance with Ashbury.
A goodly number of savings stamps have been bought by the boys this year,
but we feel this could be increased, perhaps by having less tuck, lthat is when
there is tuck in the canteeni.
Dr. Woollcombe paid his annual beginning of the year visit to the school
in September, and addressed the boys and staff briefly. l-Ie asked "What are
we fighting for?" Then answered the possible question "l-low can a boy at
school help?" and ended with the exhortation "Do it now."
We are indebted to the good offices of Dr. Shapiro for a visit to the Elgin
Theatre to see "ln Which We Serve". The whole school were invited by the
management of the theatre, and those who were able to go, most of us inci-
dentally, saw a film well worth seeing. We are deeply grateful both to the
Elgin Theatre and to Dr. Shapiro.
There has been much activity this year in the Debating Club, and the
International Relations Club, which is reported elsewhere. There has also
been a good deal going on with Flat Clubs, Upper and Lower, some of it pos-
sibly unofficial and not for publication.
A large group of boys accepted the invitation of the R.C.A.F. to attend 0
lecture on, and see an exhibition of, photographs of the work of the Air Force,
held at the l-louses of Parliament in March. They found it most interesting and
Thanks are due to Colonel Calderon for coming out on a cold evening in
March, and showing some films to a number of the younger boys. They in-
cluded films of a Commando Raid on Norway, Desert Fighting and some car-
toons, all much appreciated by the audience.
A visit to the War Museum under Mr. Travers' guidance was enjoyed by
Form IV. On another occasion the same party went to the Art Gallery. We
feel more of this would be a GOOD THING, to paraphrase lO66 and All That.
A number of boys have been having a good time swimming at the Chateau,
and eating afterwards on the invitation of Miss Seeley, for which much thanks
say all of them. A Others are indebted to Mr. Walsh for movies followed by food.
Are we being spoilt? Say not so, and carry on the good work please.-
There has been a pleasing interest in music, a number of boys taking every
opportunity of going to concerts when good musicians were in Ottawa. We'd
like to see a more active interest even if we have to sit through a School
The Stamp Club started well, under the guidance of Mr. Polk, but when he
left, it rather faded, though it still lives. Lets have it a really energetic con-
cern next year.
THE ASHBURIAN I 131
HE closing took place on Friday, July llth, in the afternoon. The Annual
Sports were held in the morning and there was a short leaving service in
the Chapel after lunch, A move was then made to the gym where the
speeches and prize giving took place.
The following account of the closing was taken from the Ottawa Citizen:-
"Perhaps among the prize winners this afternoon there will be future
leaders who will help to make Canada a great power in the art of understand-
ing." said Sir William Glasgow, Australian l-ligh Commissioner to Canada, at
the Ashbury College closing exercises yesterday afternoon.
Sir William reviewed Ashbury's part in the wars of the past and brought
to mind the things that Ashburians are learning to-day to fit themselves to
carry on the traditions of their predecessors. "You are learning discipline and
self-control, qualities that not only make good leaders but good followers as
well. Indeed, a man must be able to obey before he can command."
Much Pioneering Ahead.
Not forgetting the day after victory, Sir William spoke of the many things
that Canadians have yet to do. "There is much pioneering yet to be done-
pioneering in the fields of international relations-learning particularly social
science, which is the practice of helping the poverty-stricken."
Presenting the Annual Report N. M. Archdale, l-leadmaster of the school,
spoke of the many inconveniences and handicaps brought about directly and
indirectly by the war. "l, and others concerned with schools, have been greatly
disturbed by the very uncertain state in which education appears to be at
present," he said.
The attitude assumed by many boys who intend to enter the armed forces
that it does not matter whether or not they matriculate is one of shortsighted-
ness. "They forget that after the war they will find the lack of some academic
standing a definite handicap in either obtaining a job, or entering university,
as presumably some of them will wish to do."
Referring to the curtailment of subjects not of essential value to the war,
and replacing them with courses in defence, aeronautics and other specialized
sciences, Mr. Archdale said, "l feel that a democracy cannot exist when a
nation is composed almost entirely of technicians and specialists. Let us by
all means give all we have got to defeat the Axis nations, but don't let's lose
sight of the future.
Sports Carried On
Although cadet and defence work took much time, the sports were carried
on as in previous years. ln the first term the football team was young and in-
experienced, but although it was not very successful in the inter-school matches,
T141 THE ASHBURIAN
they "put up a good show, showing courage and promise for the future." This
was also true of the hockey team.
Much enthusiasm was shown in skiing this winter, "more for exercise and
pleasure than of a competitive nature, which to my mind is no bad thing," said
the headmaster. The cricket team enjoyed a good measure of success, al-
though it did not win the inter-school trophy. The junior soccer team success-
fully carried off the Colonel Fraser Cup.
The health of the school was good. Mr. Archdale commended Miss Mac-
Laughlin, Mrs. Fraser and Miss Barker, the school nurses, for their untiring
"Staff changes for various reasons, military duties and health, for example,
do not help in the efficient functioning of the school. This year we have been
unfortunate in that changes took place in the middle of the year," said Mr.
Archdale, "although in Mr. Walsh, Mr. Chestnut, Capt. Dare and Mr. Belcher
we obtained hard-working, enthusiastic colleagues who have thrown themselves
into their work." Mr. Archdale lauded the way in which the staff has "pulled
together" and has taken on extra duties cheerfully. l-le also spoke of the way
in which the prefects and other bays have co-operated to do whatever they
could to make for the general good.
More Serious Side-
The sale of tickets for the annual play netted the Red Cross 515274.00
Debates and meetings of the international Relations Club, at which several
distinguished people spoke, rounded out the more serious side of extra-cur-
ricular activities. Many trips to the Parliament Buildings, the Archives and
other educational places of interest were arranged for the boys.
ln conclusion, the headmaster said, "I feel that if parents, governors, boys
and staff all work together in harmony, no school can fail to be great. While
I want to express my gratitude for the co-operation of many of these categories,
l would ask that next year this co-operation be unanimous."
ln his valedictory address, R. G. R. Lawrence, head prefect, and captain
of the school for the past year said: "We shall take away with us two funda-
mental principles which at all times Ashbury has stressed-those of courage
and duty. To older and wiser people it appears, and rightly so, that this world
which we are now entering is a chaotic and frightening one. While we grant
the truth of this fact, it does not in any degree dismay us: we face it with
Col. E. F. Newcombe of the board of governors was acting chairman of
the occasion, and among those present were Norman Wilson and Senator
Cairine Wilson, Mr. and Mrs. Shirley Woods, Mrs. E. F. Newcombe, Dr. G. P.
Woollcombe, l-l. S. Southam, Col. and Mrs. J. D. Fraser, G. J. K. l-larrison, head-
master of Abinger l-lill School, now incorporated in Ashbury, and Brigadier-
General and Mrs. C. H. Maclaren.

The Groduoting Closs of forty-three ore leoving school ot o very cruciol
stoge in the history of the world. At no other time hos so much depended upon
the otmosphere ond bockground of the young people of the notion, nor upon the
chorocteristics which hove been formed ond the chorocters which hove been
moulded, of the young men who ore leciving school oll over the Dominion ot the
close of this term. All of us who ore groduoting here to-cloy hove no doubt
looked forword to this occosion with o keen feeling of onticipotion, but it is
only now thot we fully reolise thot we ore closing o chopter of hoppy memories,
of comrodeship. But even more importont thon this, we sholl, toke owoy with
us the two fundomentol principles which ot oll times Ashbury hos stressed, those
of couroge ond of duty.
At this moment there is one primory duty before us oll, thot of serving our
country, but even in times of peoce there will be tosks confronting us which
will demond on equol devotion, And the successful occomplishment of duty,
whether in peoce or wor, demonds the other fundomentcil ottribute of couroge.
Other boys who hove groduoted from Ashbury, some lost yeor, some the yeor

swerved from their duty ond they hove not locked couroge.
To the older ond wiser people it oppeors, ond quite rightly so, thot this
world which we, the closs of forty-three, ore now entering is o chootic ond
possibly frightening one. But while we gront the truth of this foct it does not

HIS year again the Annual Athletic Sports were held on the morning of
the closing. The day was very suitable for the activities of the morning,
fine but not too hot. In order to shorten proceedings the Long Jump and
Throwing the Cricket Ball events were decided the day before, an innovation
which proved successful. --Thought there were not very many startling results
recorded, there were some very close races, and the performance of Sablin, an
Intermediate, in beating several of the Senior times and distances, deserves
special mention. His Long Jump of I8 ft. I inch is remarkably good for the
under I6 class.
This year, as last, War Savings Stamps were given as prizes, except in
Special cases, such as the Championships of each class. R. Heaven won the
Senior Championship and the Fleming Cup, D. Sablin the Intermediate and
Stanley-Wright Cup and M. Paxton the Junior and Aylwin Cup.

HIS year saw a great increase in Cadet Corps activities. With Defence
added there was a period every morning, as well as the regular weekly
afternoon. There had to be instruction in a variety of additional sub,ects,
including map reading, administration, knots and lashings, Bren gun and so on.
We were fortunate to have Captain Travers on the staff to take over the posi-
tion of Cadet Instructor, and he worked very hard all year, producing some very
good results, as will be seen in the account of the Annual Inspection on an-
We were again, and increasingly so, indebted to Col. Hogan, Officer Com-
manding the Governor General's Footguards, for help and advice during the
year. We were lent a good deal of equipment, such as rifles, bayonets and
Bren guns, and also had the benefit of instructors on occasion.
The purchase by the school of three new drums, was a great help in
the marching training, and caused a noticeable improvement.
The great thrill of the year, perhaps was the arrival of new uniforms. This
came about owing to the re-organization of Cadet Services, and the appoint-
ment of Col. C. G. Grier as Director of Army Cadets. The uniforms were sup-
plied by the Government who also paid half the cost, the balance being paid
by the school concerned. Unfortunately it was only just before the Inspection
that the uniforms materialized, and even then we were a few short. However,
there were enough to show that they are smart, comfortable and serviceable, and
will certainly be a great improvement over the old long-condemned uniform,
which rumour states, have been handed down from father to son, in some cases.
One Old Boy at least, who has a son in the Cadet Corps, swears he wore them
when at Ashbury.
At the beginning of the year there were few of last year's officers and
non-commissioned officers left, so a good deal of experimenting took place. lt
was not till later that final appointments were made, based on the qualities
shown and work done by the boys concerned. We would like here specially to
mention the work of Cole and Lee.
Next year again we will have new officers, also a new instructor, in Ser-
geant Major Mitchell Henry, who comes to us with 27 years' Army service,
several years experience with Cadets in British Columbia, and a very fine
reputation and record. ' A'
CADET CORPS INSPECTION 4
The following account is taken from the Ottawa. C1'if.mi.-
Smartness and precision were noteworthy as the Ashbury College Cadet
Corps paraded before Col. C. G. Grier, Director of Army Cadets for Canada,
and Capt. T. C. Holmes, MD, 3, district cadet officer, Saturday afternoon on
the Ashbury grounds. The Governor General's Foot Guards provided a back-
ground of military music.
After the inspection of the corps, the cadets demonstrated their excellent
marching, Bren gun drill, and arms drill. The highlight of the afternoon was
I181 THE ASHBURIAN
the platoon in mock attack, with the first aid corps, the signallers and the
attackers giving a fine display of their skill in war tactics.
Juniors Take Part
A squad of juniors, not to be outshone by their seniors, marched around the
field, some of them shouldering rifles. The younger of these had had no train-
ing from a master but were drilled by the boys in the cadet corps.
"The quality was excellent, and shows keenness, enthusiasm, and esprit de
corps," said Col. Grier in the short address which he gave at the close of the
review. Col. Grier said that he had gone expecting to see something rather
good, and he was not disappointed. He congratulated Cadet Captain Ian Cole,
company commander, on the standard of proficiency displayed by the Cadets.
"This is the unit among hundreds, a hundred boys among thousands, this is
a very good example of what is being done in Canada from coast to coast."
Cadet Lieut. Ronald Heaven was presented with the cup for the best
platoon by Col. Grier, who also presented the shooting prizes. The Willis
O'Connor Cup for the senior boy with the best shooting score was won by David
Hooper, the Scott Cup for boys of I5 and I6 was given to Lewin Chapman, the
Cox Trophy for boys under I5 went to David Fair, and the Humphery Cup for
juniors was won by Timmy Kenny.
The cadets were trained by Captain R. F. Travers and the junior squad
was under the direction of Mr. A. I3. I3eIcher.
Officers of the company were, Ian Cole, cadet captain, R. Heaven, E.
Pilgrim and R. Renaud, platoon commanders, H. I3uIpit, adjutant, A. P. Lee,
company sergt. major, I3. Harben, P. Harben and K. Abbott-Smith, platoon
sergts., lvl. Barnes, quartermaster sergt., R. G. R. Lawrence, first aid lieut., and
H. Bulpit, R. l3outin and P. Richardson made up the color party.
HERE was much more shooting than last year, it being part of the Defence
and Cadet course for all members of the Corps. Some very good scores
were turned in at times, and there should be more next year. Abbott-
Smith and Chapman were very helpful and efficient in organizing and helping
to supervise the shooting. The results of the competitions were as follows:

N the night of Fridoy, Morch 26, the school ploys were presented in the
Technicol School Auditorium. The evening wos groced by the presence
of the Governor Generol ond Princess Alice, who ofterwords went bock-
stoge to greet those who hod contributed to the success of the evening.
Three ploys were presented, the first being "The Fontostic Flight" by Sidney
Box. This is o one oct ploy bosed on the now fomous Resolution of the Oxford
Union not to fight in the event of wor. The leoding port ithot of Nooh
Boomeri wos ployed by Richord Soblin. I-Iis octing wos very noturol ond good,
but I om sorry to soy thot for mony minutes neither he nor the mojority of the
members of the cost could not be heord in mony ports of the theotre. It is of
course o consideroble disodvontcige to the ocoustics to hove o number of cur-
tciins os o bockdrop instecid of o stoge set: they obsorb o Iot of sound woves:
ond the well pocked oudience obsorbed the rest before they hod time to floot
out beyond the first few rows.
I-Iowever the entronce of I-Ieotherfield iPeter Crumpl improved this situo-
tion os he wos cleorly oudible, ond motters tended to improve os the ploy went
on. There is o chorus of running commentory provided by two newspoper men
who ore ploced with their telephones on either side of the proscenium orch.
They iI3orney Lowrence ond I-Icirold Pricel hod o pretty eosy job to do but they
were not very convincing. I om not quite decided however thot the foult wos
theirs. I think their port wos rother flot. Indeed the Fontostic Flight is o
poor ploy ond its plot hos few of the ottroctive ciuolities thot fontosy con bring
with it. Freddy Mocloren os the Big Mon's secretory wos odmiroble, ond the
two women's ports token by Dovid Motthews ond Tony I-Iurtley were opporently
well ployed but olosl inoudible to our section of the theotre. Both the girls
looked very winsome. V
I-Iowever for sheer feminine chorm Pussy Northcott with dimple slightly
owry would hove been hord to beot, os she woited for the crusoder's return
in the next section of the ploy. The three selec-tions from "lO66 And All Thot"
coused greot omusement. I
"The Crusoders" is olwoys good for o lough ond we hod plenty. I wos
sorry thot Lorne Eliot os the Troubodour spoke his two songs ond I thought
thot Andrew Murdoch os the Keeper of the Drowbridge, hoving disoppointed me
by being in his blue suit, wos olso too much of o honds-in-pocket sloucher. But
the others were good ond porticulorly Arthur Woodword os Constonce should
not go unmentioned. -
In the two other scenes, "King John" ond the "Police Court," we hod mony
more Ioughs. In the former the squeezing out of the Common Mon is very
THE ASHBURIAN T211
funny: and in the latter when Columbus is indicted for discovering America,
and Guy Fawkes for failing to blow up the Houses of Parliament, everyone on
the stage seemed to be enjoying himself, and we did too, in consequence Lewin
Chapman was very good as the magistrate.
The most ambitious part of the evening then arrived with the production
of Act lll of "Journey's End", l think this was valuable as showing grownups
that such an apparently difficult play for boys to oct can be tackled with
success and as showing boys how much you can do with little or no scenery to
produce all the effects you want by relying on the imagination of your audience.
No one l believe felt the need for a more realistic representation of that dug-
out: no one l believe felt that the octors had not mastered the nuonces of
Sherriff's Last Act.
The major part fStanhopel was played with great ability by Michael
Barnesi at times I lost myself in this play and forgot my present surroundings
and my objective view. Only once did Barnes bring me back from this happy
state-when, in his scene alone with Raleigh, his voice became too loud, too
harsh. Michael Shenstone in his performance as Raleigh was pretty well as
good as Barnes: he played with great sensitiveness and most convincingly.
Derek Arnould was good as the Colonel, and lan Cole, Tony Lee, and Peter
Hatch, besides being excellently cast, did an admirable job, lan Cole in
The plays were not over till ll.l'5 or after and the only criticism l have
about Journey's End is that the waits that occurred between scenes were much
too long. In the time that it took to produce the identical dugout without the
removal or addition of more than one packing case you could have substituted
the Throne room of the Raiah's palace for the interior of the Colosseum, Rome.
Perhaps Ronnie Heaven istage and property manl had gone out for a coke?
Anyway it was a good evening, very well attended by a large and properly
enthusiastic audience and our best thanks are due to all who helped to make
if SO' G.J.K.l-l.
The Puppeteers are to be congratulated on two counts, first of all for the
admirable show they put on during the winter, second that they by so doing
raised 5157.00 for the Candies for Britain Fund. Their industry and the time
spent in preparation also deserves comment. The programme consisted of
scenes form "Don Quixote", and "The Adventures of Clippo the Clown". The
puppeteers were Charles MacNabb, G. Thomas, R. Burder,'M. Barnes, J, Harri-
son, and Michael Webb who also painted the back-drop and scenery. The
stage-manager was P. Whitworth assisted by N. Dixon, and music was in charge
of P. Mackintosh. Our only regret is that there weren't more puppet shows
during the year.

ANOTHER VIEW OF THE PLAYS
Rev. T. C. B. Boon
We are indebted to "Panorama" for this feature.
NDER the distinguished patronage of the Governor-General and HRH.
Princess Alice, the annual plays were presented in the Auditorium of the
Technical School, and while one missed the friendly atmosphere of the
Little Theatre with its superior stage and scenery, more than compensation was
added in the larger accommodation. Possibly, too, there was even a gain in
the greater simplicity and more complete demands upon the imagination,
The first play was "Fantastic Flight" which, as the Headmaster explained
in his introduction, attempted to work out the theme of pacifism. Sablin as
Noah Boomer had the heaviest part in this and gave a fine performance which
promises well for the future. MacLaren was the perfect secretary, deferential
and co-operative, while Crump l gave an unusually natural display as the
Works' Manager. The two ladies were an outstanding success, capturing
everyone's heart with their charm. ln spite of her pacific principles, Hope
Tregoring lHurtleyl was quite a dangerous vamp, and there seemed every
justification for Stella Boomer lMatthewsJ to get so indignant with her husband
in the final scene, the close of which was most stirring. The newspapermen
had difficult parts and Lawrence and Price are to be congratulated on their
The three scenes of "lO66 and All That" struck a lighter vein. ln the
first the four ladies were the centre of attraction, some of the audience being
quite envious of their costumes. The coyness of the Crusader's wife lNorth-
cottJ was greatly appreciated, but we still regret that the troubadour lEliotJ
did not sing his lines. Samuel, as the Crusader, showed a fine bluster in his part.
ln the 'King John' scene, Hooper as the Chief Baron was quite outstanding
in poise and determination, while Nelles made a rather amusing King John.
The Barons lThreshie, Machlabb, Pegram, SpielmanJ supported the principals.
Murdoch was an excellent Common Man and Keeper of the Drawbridge.
The 'Police Court' scene was dominated by Chapman as the Magistrate,
and he must be commended for the way in which he changed his dialect under
the subversive influence of Christopher Columbus lBirchwoodl, Kenny's antics
as Guy Fawkes, and the happy selection of Bulpit and Crump ll as policemen
added to the general gaiety.
Many might think that the production of the third act of "Journeys End"
was too ambitious, but it fully justified itself and one followed it with a breath-
less interest. Barnes as Capt. Stanhope had a very heavy part in which he
constantly improved. He put a lot into his work and his performance was very
effective. Cole displayed great skill in the part of Lt. Osborne and was always
convincing, Boutin as Lt. Trotter was not only refreshing, but much improved
in acting, Shenstone had a difficult part as Lt. Raleigh, but he played it with
remarkable understanding and his hesitation of manner seemed to give it the
THE ASHBURIAN IZ3l
right touch. ln minor parts, Hatch as Pte. Mason and Lee as the Sergeant-
Major did first class work, while Arnould as the Colonel, Pilgrim and Eleishmann
as soldiers, and Eliot as the German prisoner, were very efficient.
The Headmaster and Mr. Belcher are to be congratulated, both upon their
casting as well as their production. The staging was excellent under the super-
vision of Ron Heaven, assisted by Hatch, and the sound and lighting effects
were well conceived.
Altogether a happy and successful evening.
SHBURY boys were invited by Mrs. L. P. Sherwood, organizer of the school
broadcasting project "Trumpet Call to Youth", to take part in the first
demonstration, together with girls from Elmwood. There were a series
of broadcasts by different schools in Ottawa, depicting the National Life of
different races now settled in Canada. Each broadcast consisted of a short
play, followed by a discussion on the play by a class.
The Ashbury, Elmwood share, was to act a playlet "lvan lVlestrovitch" on
the life of the Jugo-Slavian sculptor, on the stage of the Glebe Collegiate, as
a demonstration for all the teachers in Ottawa. The stage was turned into a
broadcasting studio, and the play was treated exactly as if a broadcast were
taking place, with sound effects and all.
Mr. Charles P, Wright, manager of the C-B-C Ottawa studios, produced
the play, and the boys gained valuable and interesting experience. The boys
taking part, selected after several auditions at the C-B-C studio were, Barnes,
Cole, Heaven, Lawrence, Nelles, Crump l, Hooper l. We hope that in future
projects Ashbury will be given further opportunities of co-operating.
HE first meeting of the Society was held on October Znd. There were 27
members present. Lawrence moved "that Canadian Immigration after
the war should be restricted to British Subjects". Boutin opposed. There
were half a dozen speakers from the floor of the house, and the motion carried
by I4 votes to 7.
The second meeting was held on Friday, Nov. 6th, with 30 members present.
Eliot l proposed that "Classics should be abolished from the curriculum". His
main point was that people should look to the future rather than to the past.
Crump I opposed. Several speakers then rose from the floor of the house, on
both sides, the motion being rejected by I6 votes to IZ.
The third and perhaps most lively debate took place on Friday, Nov. 27th,
when with 34 members presint Chapman proposed that "The Movie has taken

possibly excited by the opplouse ond enthusiosm which wos in evidence. The
voting resulted in o tie I4 - l4, ond the President's costing vote coused the
motion to be lost.
On Eridoy, Februory 2nd, the fourth meeting wos held, with 33 members
present. Crump Il proposed thot "this l-louse believes in Ghosts" ond wos
opposed by his brother Crump l. Both spoke well, but hod to odmit their
orguments were inconclusive. There were severol speokers from the floor of
the l-louse which become rother noisy ond unruly, porticulorly when one speoker

HIS year reverting to our former practice we held the School Dance in the
Dining-Room, and as it was held on the evening of May 22nd following
the Cadet Corps Inspection that morning, we called it the Cadet Corps
Dance and uniforms were worn.
There had been some criticism beforehand because it was not being held
in the Gym, but after the dance, the general view of those questioned by our
correspondent was that the dining-room was more pleasant. As it was being
held on a Saturday it was found impossible to get an orchestra, but a "luke
box" was rented and worked steadily all evening, We would suggest that more
variety in the type of dance records selected might be given another year.
As we wanted an unbiased account of the dance, we obtained and print
below, the views of a member of the fair sex, both young and beautiful, who
was among those present, but desires to remain anonymous:
"Since I am not and never will have the honour of being a fellow Ashburian,
I can only give an account of the Annual Ashbury Dance from a purely feminine
point of view. I am sure that all the girls lucky enough to be present would
ioin me in saying that the dance was a great success from the moment we
arrived to our final goodbyes at the doorstep. This year "something new had
been added"-the cadet corps uniforms, which gave a military note to the
affair. The refreshments were delicious and thanks to Mr. Archdale, we enjoyed
a few extra dances at the end of the evening, which postponed the awful issue
of going home."
The decorations, done in the school colours, lent an atmosphere of festivity
and gaiety to the event. The flowers were charming and the music supplied
by the ever-faithful nickelodion suited any mood or tempo.
So ended another pleasant evening at Ashbury and we are greatly in-
debted to Mr. and Mrs. Archdale for making it possible,"
By F. MCL.
HIS season, due to the uncertainty of hockey, there was a great deal
mor skiing done than in previous years and many budding enthusiasts
were noticed on the slopes around Rockcliffe.
As far as interscholastic competitions were concerned, the weather past-
poned most of the leading events, but the most important of these, the Ault
Trophy, was still held and proved very successful. Five boy teams from each
school are represented, the first four to come in, counting in the final score.
The school placed fourth and fifth in the respective downhill and slalom courses
which brought the skiing season to a close.
Unfortunately, First Team I-Iockey schedules interfered with the Southam
Cross Country and Seigniory Club events, but we look forward with bright en-
thusiasm to next year's activities.
The following represented the school in the Ault Trophy:-Cole, Maclaren,
Lawrence, Price and Simonds.

EOPLE sometimes ask what use the Suggestion Box is, and have even
been known to answer their own question, by saying it is useless, as no
attention is paid to the suggestions deposited therein, They are quite
wrong, tor suggestions are carefully read Cwhen in readable torm or signedl and
considered. It feasible or sound they are acted upon, it not they are destroyed,
and usually the individual making the suggestion is given reasons.
The purpose at this article is to invite more suggestions tram boys in the
school, and also to urge that more suggestions leading to the benefit ot all, and
fewer leading to the personal benefit ot the individual should be made. For
example the suggestion that there should be a permanent box tor donations
to the Candies tor British Children Fund, was excellent, and has been adopted.
The suggestion that an extra cent on candies and drinks should be charged at
the canteen, and put to the above Fund, showed a right attitude, but is not
easy to carry out in practice. The reauest that Form ll have current events
was another good suggestion, naw put into operation.
On the other hand, the suggestion "We want more butter", when that
commodity is rationed was not only seltish but stupid, and an excellent example
ot what not to suggest.
Some suggestions have point, but are impractical, so where possible means
at carrying out the suggestion should be included. The main point ot having
a suggestion box, is to get criticism ot what is being done and suggestions as
to what should or could be done, tram those directly concerned, the boys, so
that the etticiency, and general well-being ot the school can be improved, Roll
up with your suggestions please,

RUGBY FOOTBALL: 1942-43
FIRST XII COLOURS A. Lee
R. B, Renaud
Ri G, R. Lawrence.
l-IE season of l942 opened with high hopes, but little experienced material
on which to base them. Only nine members of the first squad had ever
played football before, and none of those were ball-carriers of any
calibre, The average age was unusually low: indeed, with a handful of exceptions,
it was virtually an intermediate team which took the field. I-lowever, eagerness
to learn and a remarkable spirit, largely due to the enthusiasm of Lee and
Renaud, produced rapid improvement, and towards the end of the season there
was some really good football.
The usual drill for conditioning and fundamentals of blocking and tackling
was followed by thorough practice in signals, in which the end-run, tandem,
criss-cross and quick line-up formations, with their various pass variations,
which have been used for some years, were stressed, a few refinements being
added as usual. Very fair football sense was shown by the newcomers, and for
the first game a sounder team turned out than could reasonably have been
The first part of the season was devoted to the two traditional games with
Nepean Seniors and one against the Rockcliffe Ramblers. These were all lost,
though in no case by heavy margins, and the quality of play showed progressive
improvement. For the first time for many years, we visited Nepean at their
own grounds, a practice which must not again be allowed to lapse. To hold
so experienced and strong a team to a score of I8 - I2 on their own field was
most creditable, and the game was in all ways most enjoyable. Tribute must
be paid to the excellent sportsmanship shown by both players and spectators
For the first of our two major fixtures, Lower Canada College brought up
a versatile and well-coached squad, which returned the victors a score of I I - O.
Ashbury had a very fair share of the game, and was in scoring position several
times, but inexperience and over-anxiety robbed them of points. The game,
however, was reasonably even, and the School emerged with considerable credit,
and some very kind things were said about their display by the well-known
McGill coaches who handle the LCC. teams.
The BCS, match was played on the Lower Canada grounds in Montreal, for
the use of which and for a most generous hospitality our thanks are due to that
school. The Bishop's team was mature, heavy and competent, and carried too
many guns for us. The first half was very even and ended with BSC. leading
7 - 6. The Ashbury touch-down had been scored by one of the best pieces of
offensive football produced in recent years, a perfectly executed series of well-
varied plays taking the ball from our own twenty-five over the goal line without
interruption. ln the second half weight and experience took its toll, and
Bishop's were soon ahead. Ashbury gambled towards the end in the hope of
T281 THE ASHBURIAN
pulling the game out of the fire, and presented their opponents with two easy
opportunities on which they capitalized smartly, to make the final score 26 - 6.
It was a tired and beaten team that left the field, but their spirit was un-
quenched, and only their will to win, injudicious perhaps but laudable, caused
them to end the losers by a margin of more than one touchdown. The game
was a fine piece of football education, and played throughout in an admirable
spirit. In no instance did our opponents take undue advantage of their superior
size and strength.
The value of the experience gained was shown in the last three games, all
of which were won,-against a Lisgar team, a return with the Rockcliffe
Ramblers, and the Old Boys Match. The School, playing a freer and less
anxious type of football, scored with some facility, and beat the Old Boys in a
foot of snow by I8 - O. This was a most satisfactory conclusion to a fluctuating
but delightful season, which augurs well for the future.
Intermediate and Junior football showed a welcome renaissance and keen-
ness was general throughout the School. The Intermediate XII played an
away match with LCC in which they were well beaten, and various Junior
teams had fixtures with the Rockcliffe School and scratch squads from the
neighbourhood. A fair measure of success was gained, some promising talent
unearthed-in more senses than one-and useful knowledge of the principles
acquired. The work of Mr. Polk, Lee and Renaud in arranging, coaching and
refereeing these activities was most helpful.
The season as a whole should have proved beneficial to School football.
It remains for next year's teams to build upon the work of their precursors.
There is no fear of any lapse in keenness, but there will not be the some excuse
of inexperience, for there is the nucleus of a good squad returning. Coolness and
judgment are the only two factors needed to produce a really successful season,
and it must be the resolution of all concerned to see that that success is forth-
coming, not merely a series of meritorious failures.
FIRST XII CHARACTERS
A. LEE-Captain-4th year: Inside: his blocking and tackling were of a very
high order and his determination brought him under every play: the
finest lineman the School has had for some years. As Captain, he inspired
his men with enthusiasm and sportsmanship of the best type, and was most
efficient in all matters of organization.
R. B. RIENAUD-Vice-Captain-2nd Year: Quarterbacki a neat ball-handler
who showed progressive improvement in selection of plays and by season's
end was a really good field-general: a sound centre secondary, both in
tackling and in short-pass defence, and an accurate passer and kicker.
F. MACLAREN-2nd year: made excellent interference for his ball-carriers and
tackled effectively. His blocking on kick and pass formations was in-
R. G. R. LAWRENCE-I st year: Middle: although new to the game, showed
remarkable aptitude and displayed a high level of achievement. His plung-
ing was a major offensive threat, and his tackling on the secondary de-
fence sure and sound.

must develop his pass receiving.
FIRST Vi COLOURS-R. C. Bourget
R. B. Renaud
R. G. R. Lawrence
l-l. B. Moffatt.
l-lE season of i943 opened with a useful squad of experienced players
remaining from last year, and some promising recruits, and hopes were
high for a successful series of fixtures. That the results were somewhat
disappointing was no fault of coach or players. The loss of Moffatt early in
the season was a cruel blow, and the absence of key men from some of the
crucial games took its inevitable toll. As Captain, Bourget set a high standard
of play and department and fired his team with much of his own enthusiasm.
Once again the School was fortunate in enjoying the services of Mr. W. J.
Touhey as Coach. l-lis instruction in the fundamentals and in the finer points
of the game was beyond praise, and his insistence on sound condition and the
most rigorous canons of sportsmanship inculcated lessons of even more import-
ance. We hope that we may long be privileged to benefit from the experience
of so genial, so keen and so efficient an instructor.
Same enjoyable practice games were played in the earlier weeks of the
season with local teams, those with the fast-skating Gladstone squad being of
particular value. ln two private school games, we were unfortunate in meeting
two exceptionally fine and well-balanced opponents, whose combination of speed
and strength with well-executed concerted plays was too much for us. In
neither game were we at full strength, and in the BCS. fixture particularly
were definitely short-handed. Determination to rise to the occasion on the
part of both the older and the less experienced members kept the score within
reasonable bounds on both occasions, but scaring punch was lacking, and our
defence caught too often on the wrong foot.
A pleasing feature of the season was the keenness of the younger mem-
bers of the squad, among them some of our English visitors, who have developed

Vs. L. C. C., AWAY. LOST 8 - I
The first team travelled to Montreal for its first important game on Feb.
27 and were defeated by a lopsided score. L.C.C. were held in their own end
throughout most of the game but managed to visit Ashbury long enough to
score eight times. The lone goal for Ashbury was scored by Read on a pass
from Bourget, The team fought hard but were overcome by superior playing.
Covey, Cuttle and Sainsbury were best for Lower Canada while Lawrence and
Sablin played well for Ashbury.
Goal: Sablin, Defence: Lawrence, Lee, Price, Centre1Bourget, Left Wing:
Renaud, Right Wing: Read, subs: Pilgrim, Thomas I, Bulpit, Fleck.
Vs. B. C. S., AWAY. LOST 5 - O
Again we travelled to Montreal for our second important game. This time
we only had nine players. Goodeve was forced to play goal, Sablin being sick
and Price had to move up to the forward line. B.C.S. had more scoring chances
than the score would indicate, however, Ashbury had their share also and missed
them all. Toward the middle of the second period we began to tire, but we did
not 'give up the fight. The team fought to the end hoping at least to be re-
warded by one goal, but the Bishop's team checked furiously and gave us no
chance to get in close. Shepherd and Pitfield played well for Bishops while
Bourget, Lawrence and Cioodeve turned in good efforts for the losers.
Goal: Goodeve, Defence: Lawrence, Lee, Centre: Bourget, Left Wing:

THE ASHBURIAN im
' Vs. GUXDSTONE SNIPERS. LOST 8 - 2.
The first game of the year was played at the Auditorium against a team
with much more speed than we had. However, the team put up a good fight
and Moffatt and Thomas I each scored once. Bourget hit the goal post on
three different occasions.
Vs. l3UCKlNGl-lAM, AWAY. WON 2 - 0
ln their second game the team showed some improvement and came
through with their only victory of the season. Thomas and Bulpit scored our
goals. The game was two hours late starting because our train broke down
three miles from the station. Bulpit, Renaud, and Lee turned in good play for
the winners. Unfortunately Moffatt, who played in the first game, was forced
to the sidelines for the season due to a heart condition.
Vs. GLADSTONE SNIPERS. LOST lO - l
In a return game against the Gladstone boys we seemed to lack teamwork
and spirit and allowed our opponents to run up quite a pile of goals before
Fleck managed to retaliate from a scramble in front of the net. -
. Vs. OLD BOYS, HOME. LOST 4 - 3 A
Our annual game against the Old Boys came off on Tuesday, Feb. 23, and
though there weren't many Old l3oys it was a good game. Ashbury scored first
when Bourget pushed a rebound into an empty net. The Old Boys fought back
under Burrows' leadership and scored three times to put them in the lead 3 - l.
Ashbury came back and whittled the lead down on a goal by Renaud. Soon
afterwards Bourget tied it up. The Old Boys started to slow down through 'lack
of reserves and conditioning but Ashbury found Charlie Burrows a tough nut to
crack and towards the end the Old Boys scored on a breakaway. Burrows was
a standout for the Old Boys and Bourget, Renaud, and Lawrence played well
The line-up for the game 3-

HOUSE GAMES .
lst Game. Woollcombe l Connaught l
This was a hard fought game and penalties were drawn by bath teams.
Moffatt scored for Woollcombe and Lee scored for Connaught. '
Zrid Game. Woollcombe 6 Connaught 2.
- Though slow to start Woollcombe finished with a four goal splurge in the
third period. Both teams had scored two goals at the end of the second period,
Lee and Read counted for Connaught while Hurtley and Renaud kept Wooll-
combe in the scoring records. Thomas, with two goals led Woollcombe on to
victory in the final stages and Pilgrim and Renaud each scored once.
3rd Game. Woollcombe 5 Connaught 3 I
Before the game had hardly started Woollcombe had a 2 - O lead on goals
by Thomas and Bourget. Soon afterwards Renaud added another to this total.
Connaught was slow to retaliate and it was not until the third period was under-
l34l THE ASHBURIAN
way that Lawrence scored from Price. Connaught was awarded two penalty
shots but failed to score on either. Renaud and Thomas scored again to in-
crease WooIlcombe's lead to 5 - I. Connaught came back and Read scored
when he deflected the puck off Bourget's skate into the net. Price finished the
scoring on a shot from a scramble in front of the Woollcombe net when Thomas
was serving a plenalty for tripping.

I-IIS year was highly successful, all teams, lst XI, Under I5, Junior School,
won all matches played, and what must be almost unique, not a goal
was scored by any of our opponents against any of our teams. The lst
XI under the captaincy of Lawrence won both games against Lower Canada
College. The Under I5 Team in a triangular contest against Lower Canada
College and Selwyn I-louse, for a cup presented by Colonel J. D. Fraser, won all
four matches very comfortably.
The Junior XI severely trounced Rockcliffe Public School, who had an in-
experienced team this year.

Vs. L. C. C. I-IOIVIE. WON 3 - O
On Thursday, Oct. 29th, the lst XI played L.C.C. During the first half the
ball was for the most part in the L.C.C. portion of the field, and though during
the second half, the L.C.C. forwards made several dangerous rushes, the Ash-
bury defence prevented them from scoring, and helped our forwards to keep
-control of the game. This ended with the score 3 - O in our favour. The goals
-were scored by Grove I I2l and Bulpit.

On Friday, November 2nd, the lst XI journeyed to Montreal to play their
second game against L.C.C. The game was more even than the one played
at Ashbury, but we were still definitely the stronger team, and outplayed our
opponents. The score was 2 - O, the goals being scored by Grove I and

On Saturday October I7th L C C under IS team came to Ottawa Owing
to a misunderstanding, two members ot their team didn't arrive till after the
game, so two, Ashbury substitutes in Murdoch and Castle, were pressed into
service. Ashbury pressed from the start and scored at regular intervals, Boag
in goal, having little or nothing to do. The score at the end was 8 - O. in our
favour. Threshie had a great day, scoring 7 goals, Winser getting the eighth

HE Cricket season of V343 opened in most inclement weather, but the
warmth of the enthusiasm and justifiable optimism more than overcame
the rigours of the elements. ln spite of the loss of the bowling of Bailey,
the batting of McLaren and the all-round play of MacDonald, the material on
hand, with a wealth of promising youngsters, was probably the best in quality
and variety for many years. ln Richardson, Cole, R l-larben and Sablin the Xl
had four of the best batsmen of recent generations, and all those played
primarily for bowling or fielding were capable of making runs, The bowling,
with Lawrence as fast-medium right hand, Renaud medium right-hand, Threshie
slow left-hand, and Richardson and P. l-larben slow-medium right-hand, pos-
sessed length, variety and attack in just proportion. The fielding was not,
perhaps, quite up to our usual standard, but far from inadequate.
The early matches more than bore out our hopes, We scored 94 runs
against the Ottawa C.C., and disposed of them for 67, Threshie having the
remarkable analysis of 5 for lO. The Defence CC. won the toss and made 52.
We had to battle for the runs, but a fine Bl by P. l-larben brought us victory
with a total score of 6-l, Against the New Edinburgh CC, champions of the
Ottawa Valley Cricket Council, we ran up the remarkable number of HS runs
against a strong bowling side, and were only beaten just on time through a
brilliant display of forcing cricket by Taylor and Satterthwaite, We entered
the private school matches with well-founded confidence and a fair expecta-
U81 THE ASHBURIAN
tion of retaining the championship won by the Xl of l942 for the first time for
Against Lower Canada College, on our own grounds, Richardson and Sablin
put on 90 for the first wicket, and we declared at l57 for 6, leaving our visitors
an hour and a half to play. They were all out for 3l in less than an hour, only
Piper offering any resistance to the bowling of Lawrence, making his first ap
pearance of the season, Threshie and Richardson. The conclusion of the House
Match, in which Connaught beat Woollcombe by an innings llOO to 44 and 329
and a most enjoyable Staff Match intervened between this fixture and the
match with Bishop's College School. The l-leadmaster scored an enterprising
34 for the Staff, and Mr. l-larrison a painstaking 40, and the Xl were set ll6
to win. The l-leadmaster and Mr. l-lincks bowled well, and only a fine and
vigorous Sl by Cole enabled the Xl to get the runs, which they did with 3
wickets to spare.
Fortified by this excellent match practice, we opposed BCS. on the Lower
Canada grounds, for which once again we thank our hosts. We lost the toss and
let our rivals compile 75, which might have been substantially less, had
too difficult chances been accepted. l-lowever, with confidence born of previous
scores, this did not seem too formidable. But as so often in Cricket, the unex
pected happened, and six good wickets were down for 9 runs. Only a courage
ous innings of 22 by Cole, with some plucky help from Lawrence and Pilgrim
enabled us to reach the poor total of 49, by far the lowest of the year. The
attack was respectable, and the fielding of l3.C,S. good, but by no means as
strong as we had mastered in earlier games. There could be no excuse for the
failure of our sound and experienced batsmen in this most crucial of matches
score, fairly cjuickly, we should have a good chance of knocking off the runs
But here a grievous error of judgment occurred. Lawrence and Renaud bowled
interminable overs, for little cost admittedly, but wasting time and playing the
batsmen in, when the slow bowlers might have been getting the wickets, as
they had in the first innings. The l3.C.S, batsmen all failed to make double
figures except Sheppard who hit well for 43, and l-looper who compiled a cor
rect 23, but they kept up their wickets well, and left us with insufficient time
to get the runs by normal batting. Their second innings of 93 set us l2O to
win, and little over an hour to do it in. Quite correctly, an attempt was made
at first to force the pace, but the hitters, with the exception of Lawrence with
I6, failed, and before long we were well behind the clock. Here another mis
take in judgment was made. Batsmen were allowed to come in and throw
their wickets away in attempting the impossible, and the last ball found us with
only one wicket to fall and still 26 runs short of our objective, with 94 runs on
the board, More runs could have been made for fewer wickets if batsmen had
played their normal game, when once it was obvious that the match was lost
lt is an old saw that old heads cannot be put on young shoulders, but in this
case there were several pairs of shoulders of reasonable age and considerabl
experience, and better control should have been kept of the team. A fine match

T401 THE ASHBURIAN
THRESHIE-Ist year: his slow left-hand bowling came on very well: makes the
ball go both ways, and tosses it up to the batsman: a free bat with a taking
style: is sound in the field, and throws well, but rather slow in moving to
a ball. '
CHAPMAN-I st year: a good man to go in first wicket down: plays very
straight, and has developed an off-drive: fields and throws well.
PILGRIM-I st year: shows considerable promise as a hitter: needs to watch
the ball more closely: throws excellently, and is safe in the long field, but
does not make full use of his speed.
PRICE-lst year: an admirable field at fine-leg or in the country, and a fair
thrower: shows promise as a bat but lacks experience.
HARBEN ll-I st year: has a good forward-stroke but needs to cultivate his
back-play: fields keenly and throws strongly.
HURTLEY-Ist year: a slow leg-break bowler who should develop well: bats in
attractive style and only needs confidence to be very good: fields keenly
in practice, but must not let the occasion overawe him in match play.
IVIACINIABI3 ll-Ist year: a pleasing bat, with good scoring strokes, if as yet a
trifle weak in defence: must improve his catching.
ELIOT I-lst year: a left-hand batsman with a free style, who must learn not
to get himself out unnecessarily: needs to be more alert in the field.

This year a greatly increased interest was shown in Boxing, coinciding with
the finding of an Instructor in Mr. G. Glossop. A club was formed with Lee as
President, and though we didn't get started till well on in the year, the keenness
of the members and the hard work and ability of Ivlr. Glossop produced some
very good bouts at the competition which took place in May, Next year we
will hope for even more interest and will make an earlier start.
- The classes for Juniors, taken by Mr. Harrison continued as before, and
perhaps the best testimony to them is the fact that they produced in
the winner of the Grant Cup for Ring Craft, open to the school.

THE ASHBURIAN I-HI
THROUGH THE YEARS
Furtlzvr t'.l'fI't1l'fS from buck iiiiiiibvrx of thi' .4slzburiaii
The first meeting of the Ashbury College Debating Society was held in the
R.M.C. room on Sunday evening, December I2th, Mr, Philpot addressed the
meeting in an unofficial capacity, and invited those present to elect the officers.
He then proposed that the Headmaster be President of the Society. The
motion, seconded by Mr. Tremain, was carried unanimously.
1916 This Seenzs Familiar
As each new term comes rolling in
And each old term runs out,
I always vow the same old vow
As you have vowed, no doubt.
I always vow to study hard
With all my might and main,
I will not slack, I will not shirk
I'll try and try again.
lOne Month Laterl
But now I've had enough of work,
I try to toil in vain,
I start to slack, I start to shirk,
My vow is bust again.
And now I've finished writing this,
I need a life-long rest,
So thank the Lord it's Christmas time
For holidays are best.
1916 Plenty of them now.
On Saturday morning, October 9th, another half holiday was given to cele-
brate the entry of the first son of an Old Boy into the School. As the following
Monday was Thanksgiving Day, we thus enjoyed an "exeat" from Friday noon
till Tuesday morning.
1917 Why not to-day?
For the first time in the history of the "Ashburian" the subject-matter has
been written and prepared for the press entirely by the boys. The first boy-
editors are to be congratulated on the result of their labours, and I sincerely
hope that in future the editorial staff will always be composed entirely of
boys. This is, of course, the right way to produce a school magazine.
l44l THE ASHBURIAN
Impressiolzs ofa New Boy on First Awival at Ashbury.
Well, sir, when I left the train, I inquired of a guy the nearest way to get
to Ashbury: he told me to "grab the rattler crost the grain." This was a new
language to me and it took me several minutes to fathom the mystery, from
which I deducted that he meant to take a cross-town car. Seeing a likely look-
ing car I took it, as directed, and shortly afterwards found out that you pay for
a see-saw as well as a ride, when you have the misfortune to get stranded on
one of this species. I-Iowever, after about fifteen minutes, we seemed to leave
the city altogether and enter a wood: I grew alarmed at this and was about to
ask the conductor where I was going when he yelled out, "As-bree." I felt
greatly relieved at this, for I guess he meant Ashbury, but, on getting out of
the car, I was very disappointed to see no Ashbury in front of me.
Well, sir, the road looked quite civilized-like here, so I thought I'd scout
along it and try to unearth the college. I walked through about ten minutes
of forest, taking several turns, and considering myself pretty lucky in finding
my way as I saw a very large gray-stone building in front of me. About here
I encountered a lone passer-by, and politely inquired if that was Ashbury
College: at this he burst out laughing, much to my annoyance, and said it was
the "O'rpheIinat St. Joseph," and told me where my destination was. I felt
guite squashed, I may say, and, summoning up all my courage, I entered the
school grounds bravely, it looked a nice peaceful place, bunches of boys scrap-
ping being the only humans visible,
It was getting on to 4.30 PM. so I marched confidently up the steps
through the imposing porch, once inside, I confess I lost what little self-con-
fidence I owned, and, when shown to my room, I had a feeling in my throat as
if I had swallowed an egg lwholel, and it had stuck half way down, and in
my eyes, as if they were going to become like a well-known neighboring city,
I-lull, lrather wet.l
I-lowever, after the first preliminary introduction to my room, etc., at
which time I tested the springs of what was intended to be my bed, and found
that they were neither in first-class condition, nor had been, I gathered, for a
considerable time past. Then I went downstairs to examine the lower flat and
my future chamber-of-horror lclassrooml
6.I5 found me eating tea: by this time I was feeling very bashful, being
minutely scrutinized by a crowd of inquiring seniors who kept questioning me
as to my genealogical descendency, where I hung out, etc.
Tea over, I was led below, where, before a most select audience of seniors,
I was requested to sing. So, blowing out my lungs to their fullest capacity, I
managed to utter a very feeble reproduction of "My Little Gray Home in the
With the major portion of my self-respect left in the "gym," I retired to
my sleeping apparatus, summing up the latter events of the day, from which I
concluded that my vocal powers were not appreciated at school, it being as

rooms. Here and there pretty cosy corners were cleverly constructed so that
the general appearance of the whole school was very pleasing to the eye.
A splendid supper was served in the Dining Room at lO.3O pm. Excellent
music was furnished by Mr. Race's Orchestra, and a most enjoyable evening
The Goirernment House Dance
His Excellency the Duke of Devonshire very kindly invited the Seniors to a
most delightful Ball at Government House given in honour of his daughter Lady

The beautiful Ball-room was thronged with dancers throughout the even-
ing and seldom have we experienced a more enjoyable time.
All the young ladies looked extremely sweet, their dainty dresses and the
blue uniforms of the RMC. cadets made a very pretty picture.
Delicious refreshments were served in the Blue Room, which was used for
sitting out. Other cosy corners were arranged throughout the house and even
in the Billiard Room where a auiet game was played by some of the guests.
At lO.3O Rlvl, His Excellency with Mrs. Sladen, led the way to the raquet
court. Here supper was served at round tables all beautifully decorated with
After supper were more dances, the party breaking up shortly after I2 p.m.

All the Juniors have had their voices tested and a special Choir has
been selected, This does not mean that the rest of the boys are not to join
in the services. lncidentally it has been noted that those who have very loud
voices in the passages seem to lose them when they enter Chapel.
THE IVIISADVENTURES DF A WEEK-ENDER
It was one of those sticky days when one can neither ski nor skate that I
decided to take a chance and skip home.
Visions of cake and crumpets had been before my eyes all day, so when
school finished I could not resist the temptation to take French leave and go
I went quietly up to my room, put on my hat and coat and slid quietly
down the banisters. After several little manoeuvres I looked through the key-
hole of the duty room and saw all the masters drinking tea and eating cake.
After having decided that the coast was clear I slipped out of the back door
and walked out of the front gate trying to look as if I owned the place but
inwardly feeling that there were about three masters watching me out of every
window in the school.
However, I got out of the gate safely and was about half way down the
road when I saw a figure approaching in the distance which seemed to me as
if all six masters rolled into one were approaching. Immediately I jumped the
fence and threw myself flat in a snow-drift on the other side. However, it
turned out to be only a workman, so I resumed by trip with my heart beating
THE ASHBURIAN I-171
My next trouble was that a master might come down and get on the
same car with me, so I decided to wait behind the car-station till the car
arrived. By doing this I nearly lost the car but managed to hop on quite safely.
I reached home, but could not eat anything on account of worrying how
to get back. I started on my homeward journey about 4.30 pm. and reached
the Ashbury station in safety but was very suspicious of every one who got on
the same car with me. I decided to return by way of the fields and waded
through snow about three feet deep until I came within one hundred yards of
It was quite dark. I was wet right through and almost approaching a
nervous breakdown when I re-entered the back door. All seemed safe so I crept
quietly upstairs and took off my hat and coat.
Upon asking the other boys whether anyone had missed me I was very
relieved to find that no enquiry had been made. The rest of the time before
supper was spent in rushing madly about trying to avoid masters. One of them
I met on the stairs and I thought it was "all-up" but I pretended to be studying
a picture on the wall until danger had passed. During this time I thought I
was going to have heart failure but finally to my relief the bell went for tea.
All through this meal I imagined that all the masters were looking at me, so I
kept my eyes firmly fixed on the table cloth. I could not help thinking of the
grace, "For what we are about to receive, etc," and this did not cheer me up
a bit, for I knew I should be gated if I were caught.
Tea was over and I thought that my troubles were too, but "nothing doing".
Suddenly I heard my name called. I turned and found myself face to face
with a master who asked me where I had been all the afternoon. Being a truth-
ful boy I owned up pleased that at last the suspense was over and I knew the
I have resolved that the next time I intend to skip, I shall put up a notice
telling everyone where I have gone and when I shall be back. This will prevent
me from being so long in such terrible suspense.
Needless to add I was gated, and then and there resolved to spend the
next week in the infirmary. 7
1919 Aslzbury boys meet the Prince of Wales
On November IOth, the boys of Ashbury College were asked to appear at
Government House in order that they might have the opportunity of meeting
the Prince of Wales, prior to his departure to the United States. The boys,
accompanied by the Headmaster and the Staff, were lined up in front of the
Main entrance to Rideau Hall under the command of Capt. Dwyer and presently
the Prince appeared. After inspecting the boys the Prince addressed them in a
short speech. His Royal Highness expressed pleasure at seeing the boys from
Ashbury and asked the Headmaster to grant them a whole holiday in honour of
the occasion. Mr. Woollcombe in a brief speech thanked the Prince for his
kindness in receiving the boys and wished him God-speed and a safe return to
England. Three cheers were then given for the Prince and also for the Governor-
General. Three cheers were renewed as His Royal Highness motored off to the
Central Station en route to the United States.

i561 THE ASHBURIAN
lWith apologies to Baron Munchausenl
AM a woodsman by trade and three weeks ago I was hauling a huge load
of logs on my sleigh, The weather was cold, cold enough to freeze my
leather traces and cause them to become brittle and break. Darkness was
not far off and I was still five miles from my hut. I took my fowling piece and
looked for something to shoot, some animal who would supply me with raw-hide
for my traces. Inside of five minutes I had shot three moose and cutting their
hide into strips I fastened it into traces. By this time it was pitch black and
I couldn't see ten feet in front of me. Luckily my horse knew his way home
and I walked beside him trying to lighten the burden he dragged. The weather
had changed from intense cold to damp and humid and a light rain had begun
to fall, In three hours of weary walking I reached my hut, dead tired and hot.
I brought a lantern from the peg on the wall and busied myself in un-
hitching my horse, it was then that I noticed that the load of logs was not with
us. All I could see were long strips of raw-hide stretching into the night. The
raw-hide must have stretched in the damp weather as raw-hide does, and the
logs were probably miles along the road. There was nothing I could do about
it that night, both the horse and I were too tired, so very despondent I went
I slept late next morning because of my fatigue and the sun was blazing
high in the sky. I thought of the tedious work that lay before me and hurried
out to feed my horse. On opening the door I almost fainted with amazement,
for there in the yard was the missing load of logs. The sun had been so strong
that it had shrunk the rawhide, and because I had hitched the traces over a
post, the shrinking had brought the logs right up to my door.
ESCAPE A LA MUNCHAUSEN
HAD the misfortune to be captured by a gang of bandits and taken to
their castle. At the time I was travelling through Germany. Once a day
I was brought food and once a week a barber appeared. After a week or
two, I had made friends with a girl who lived within sight of my prison window.
I evolved a plan of talking into my water supply, catching the bubbles formed
and floating them down to her, where breaking them, she released my words
and heard my conversation. In this way I asked her to send a rope to my win-
dow and I would supply a thread to pull it up. When she agreed I set to work
and tied into a long rope the hair that the barber had clipped from my head,

E sits in the darkness, with no one else near. lt is late at night, and the
city is getting ready to go to sleep. Nearby is the stirrup pump, and
some buckets of water, He is reading an official pamphlet, issued to
fire watchers only, and he is trying to memorize it for he is the fire watcher of
the "Thornton News Press" building. He yawns, for he will be going to bed
shortly, and fire watching is very boring. At last Big Ben strikes twelve. He
gets up, sets his watch, and then pauses in dismay. ln front of him is a small
fire, which is gaining in intensity every second. Lordl Why doesn't the govern-
ment tell you what to do in cases like this? Should he use the stirrup pump?
But no, that would be no good in this case, for the water would only spread the
flames. Should he use the fire extinguisher, resting near the door? With a
bound he rushes to the door, and picks it up, but at the scene of the fire, he
pauses undecided whether he should use it or not. The fire is getting worse,
and burns more brightly. With terror in his eyes, he gets a bucket of sand
from the roof next door and dashes it onto the fire. At last! The fire goes out.
He goes to bed satisfied, to think that he is patriotic. Never do for a fire
watcher to go to bed with a fire still burning. Anyway its a law that coal is
to be saved as much as possible, and think of all the fuel that could be used
tomorrow. I R S
THE ART OF PAINTING
HAT do we mean by painting? ls it just mixing a few paints and then
daubing them onto a board or is it a long and painful process of
study, patience and practice? By looking at some people's idea of
painting, you might think that it was the former but then if you look at the
works of Rembrandt, El Greco, or Titian, you would immediately say the latter.
Which are we to choose from? People do not seem to get the same amount
of pleasure out of seeing a good painting by a modern artist that they do in see-
ing paintings of Gainsborough or Raphael. This may be rather hard on modern
painters because not all painters, notably Gogan and Picasso, and a limited
few, put the paint on anyhow.
People seem to have lost the art of painting a picture by themselves. By
this l mean, making their own paints and brushes and then glazing one's paints
onto the canvas. Nowadays people buy all their equipment, squeeze it out of
a tube onto a canvas. ln this way modern paintings will last no more than 0
hundred years, while others have lasted from four to five hundred years.
What then is the point of painting if you know in the back of your mind
that in about two generations it will have been destroyed by time? Also people
must realize that they are painting with the wrong technique. When will all
these lackadaisical habits fall by the wayside and painters go back to the
technique of the old masters? Until that time, no one can really say that they
have painted any real paintings. W E
THE ASHBURIAN l59l
BERLEUTNANT Karl Kramer was feeling very happy as he flew over the
African Desert. He had many reasons to feel thus, for wasn't he even
now flying on his last assignment before going back to Germany, Marie,
and little Karl, their son. He hadn't seen them for nearly two years now, and
the very thought of being near them again made him feel as if he were sitting
on top of the world.
Suddenly his thoughts turned back to his assignment, if such it could be
called, for what was it to bomb a British Hospital. Still his CO. had told him
that if the job was well done he would be in line for an Iron Cross. At first
this had surprised him, but then he learned that the hospital contained some
special operating equipment, the only one of its kind in Africa.
All at once his thoughts were interrupted as Sergeant Mayer, the plane's
navigator tapped him on the shoulder and told him that the "Churchill Military
Hospital" was only ten miles away. At this Lieutenant Kramer brightened up.
for although he wanted to go back home he still liked killing those British
swlne who so atrociously attacked his fatherland and his beloved Fuhrer. His
radio and paper told him how the British had killed his comrades and now he
was going to pay them back.
By this time the plane was practically over the hospital and after a prelim-
inary check over, Karl put it into a dive aimed right for the center, or main
building. He saw the bombs leaving their racks. He saw the ant like figures
of hospital attendants running around trying to get the patients into the shel-
ters. And then, he saw the bombs exploding and huge pieces of the building
being thrown up by the force of the explosions before coming down and crush-
ing his helpless victims. Then he pulled the plane out of the dive and turned
back, for home.
He wiped the sweat off his face and broke into a smile for now his job
was finished and as yet not even one shot had been fired on them.
He was still smilling when his gunner reported that three Hurricanes were
quickly approaching. For the first time since the raid began a look of worry
spread over Karl's face. He tried to get into a cloud bank, but by that time
the English planes had already spotted him and were in hot pursuit. Soon they
had caught up to him and were firing at him, Karl threw the plane into all
kinds of manoeuvers, but it was no use, he could'nt shake them off.
Suddenly he felt the plane jerk forward and go down, out of control. At
first his mind was too befogged ta understand what was happening, but then
slowly, slowly it cleared, and surprising to note was the fact that he was think-
ing about his wife and child instead of his Fuhrer which was what the lntelli-
gence Officers told him he would be thinking about. Then the plane crashed
and Karl felt a jarring pain go right through him. After that he fainted.
The next time he opened his eyes a British doctor had just walked away
from him, and Karl heard the doctor quietly say to one of the nursesi "We
could have saved the poor beggar with the stuff we had at the "Churchill" but
now he has no chance." Those were the last words Karl ever heard.

JUNIOR SCHOGL NOTES
l-IE Junior School hod o splendid record to look bock upon lost yeor. The
proof of this is to be found in the high overoge of morks which most of
of the boys obfofned. Quite o number obtoined over the seventy-five
percentoge overoge thus winning o prize of Wor Sovings Stomps. Much of the
credit for our success must go to our Mosters, who worked so potiently with us
under difficult circumstonces. It is regrettoble thot we hod to leove out both
Science ond Monuol Troining, but it wos entirely due to Wor conditions ond
wos ofter oll, o very smoll socrifice to moke.
On occount of the extremely heovy snowfoll, in foct the worst known for
fifty-three yeors, it wos impossible to hove our rinks kept in order for use, there-
fore, we hod no hockey gomes on our own rinks.
An interesting but one sided gome, in our fovour, wos ployed ogoinst the
Rockcliffe Pork Public School in Soccer.
Whot we lost in l-lockey, we certoinly mode up on Soccer ond Cricket. The
Soccer gome with Rockcliffe Pork Public School ended with o ll l score in our
fovour, is now fomous becouse they were oble to more thon even up the score
with o 30 to l win ogoinst us in Footboll. We more thon held our own ogoinst
the lower teom of the Senior School both in Soccer ond Cricket, which found
us in good form. C
ln Boxing Timothy Kenny brought ci greot deol of credit to the Junior
School in winning two prizes, porticulcirly the prize for ring-croft which wos
open to the entire school.
The Junior Cross Country Roce wos keenly contested by the first four boys,
Costle, Grove, Nesbitt, Spencer.

OM Laney, better known as "Jinx" was very unpopular. l-le was not
unpopular because of the reasons most people are unpopular, but be-
cause he was, what his name implied, a iinx. When he had been a boy,
whenever he played a game his team always lost. l-le had been in several
crashes, and he could never do anything right.
When war broke out "Jinx" joined the air force. l-le was sent to a training
field to learn to be a bomber pilot. l-le learned all the ground work well. Then
came the great day. l-le took off for the first time in his life in a two seater
with the instructor in the rear seat. As soon as the instructor gave him the
controls something happened and the plane went into a long spin. At only a
few hundred feet from the ground was the instructor able to pull the plane up.
At the end of his first month of flying he had the 'plane on its nose ten times.
He was almost washed out, but not quite.
After many months he was sent to England to pilot a Wellington bomber.
The trip was uneventful until the convoy was in sight of England. There was
suddenly a cry of, "Two torpedoes to the starboard". Before anybody could do
anything there were two explosions. Men scrambled for the lifeboats. Six
lifeboats were wrecked in the explosions. The ship went down immediately.
Only a few men escaped, including "Jinx"
A few days later "Jinx" reported at an aerodrome in Southern England.
Three nights after he reported he went on his first raid.
They took off in the inky darkness for the Ruhr.
When over the target the Wellington went into a dive right through a
curtain of flack. The bombardier dropped the bombs squarely on the target.
Then the 'plane climbed steeply. All around explosions rocked it. Suddenly
there was an especially blinding glare and a deafening explosion. The observer
fell dead and the radio was completely wrecked. The plane turned over, and if
the men had not been wearing safety belts, they would have been badly hurt.
"Jinx" gave the order to bail out, but he stayed with the 'plane. The left
engine was blown out and the right one badly damaged. One by one he saw the
crew killed by A.A. fire. Somehow he made the coast of England just as his
engine went dead. l-le bailed out and landed in a wheat field.
Five times he crashed and only he survived. Until one day "Jinx" took
off for his last flight.
The target was Wilhelmshaven. To get there the planes had to cross a
very important harbour, the A.A. fire was terrific, the Germans were trying to
defend the harbour and the pocket battleship which lay at anchor.
The Wellington containing "Jinx" was caught in several beams from
searchlights and instantly plastered with shells. One .wing was almost shot
away, and there were holes all over the fabric, also one of the engines was
afire. Once again "Jinx" gave the order to bail out. Again "Jinx" stayed
with the 'pIane, but this time the Wellington went down fast. lt dived towards
the harbour. There were two things to do. Bail out and save himself, or stay
with the plane so that he could head the plane where it would do the most

good. He quickly mode up his mind, He took the controls ond heoded the
plone for the pocket bottleship.
As the plone hit o funnel there wos ci thundrous explosion os the bomb
lood exploded. The ship broke into flomes ond burnt fiercely until it reoched
the mogozine. Then there wos such on explosion thot it rocked the city. The
ship went down ot once.

ILENTLY through the night thousonds of men crowled ond wriggled
toword the enemy lines. Scores of tonks, ormoured cors ond motorized
ortillery were woiting just behind the lines for the signol to ottock.
Hundreds of divebombers ond fighters were being wheeled out from their secret
boses, while forther bock heovy bombers were winging their woy towcird the
scene of oction.
Out ot seo bottleships, cruisers ond heovy gunboots were monoeuvering
into position for their bombordment of enemy gun emplocements, Destroyers
ond torpedo-boots were reody to ottock the enemy fleet with the help of our
coostol commcind oircroft.
Suddenly o whistle blew, ond our troops jumped up from their prone posi-
tions on the ground ond chorgedl Our tonks rumbled forword, our dive-
bombers blosted enemy 'plones while they were still on the ground, ond our
fighters strofed the German front line trenches. Meonwhile, os our ormoured
cors mopped up enemy forword mochine-gun nests ond pillboxes, the motorized
ortillery wos very octive shelling the enemy reserves.
Overheod British heovy bombers were Pounding owoy ot roods, roilwoys
ond communicotion centres. By now, neorly oll the Nozi shore botteries hod
been silenced ond the enemy fleet hod been driven out to seo with heovy losses.

Now the second phose of the ottock begon. Tronsports ond corgo ships
were londing commondos on the enemy shore! Porotroopers were flooting down
from the sky! As soon os the commondos got oshore, they joined up with the
porotroops ond estoblished beochheods on the cliffs. Then they pushed inlond
driving the Nozis before them.
Then the Germons, finding themselves ottocked from two sides begon to

CAME out here on I-l.M.S. Camaronia. It was in the year I9-40, when I set
out on this ship. I remember only too well the hurried rush to Glasgow, and
the day spent in Scotland before the voyage. At last towards evening we,
lmy brother and II went on board. I did not feel sad at leaving Old England,
but only as if adventure was ahead.
Next morning I woke to find it daylight, Geoffrey dressed, and the Cama-
ronia moving down the Clyde towards the sea. We did not stay long in the
river but were soon out at sea and in sight of Ireland. But it was not long till
both Scotland and Ireland were out of sight beyond the horizon.
That morning we were supposed to have life saving drill or something, but
all we children did was play.
The next day was fine and we saw the sunrise, but the two days after were
foggy, still it was fun running about on the deck with the foghorn blaring at you.
The next few days that completed the voyage were uneventful, we arrived
at New York in the evening of the eighth day but were not allowed in till the
morning, when Geoffrey and I were met and taken to Philadelphia.
The Camaronia is now sunk, but its memory will remain with me always.
IA tragedy in one pagel
T was a hot summer's afternoon and a fairly happy group of people were
moving towards a previously arranged destination. Very few of them
realized the action, which lay ahead of them, and this accounted largely for
the leisurely way in which they were walking, '
Some of the leaders had already reached their destination, where they were
comparatively safe. I-lowever suddenly a roar and a cloud of dust in the dis-
tance made them realize that their companions were in danger. Their warning
shouts were so loud that they temporarily drowned the rapidly approaching roar
in the distance. These cries by no means went unheeded, in fact it was the
signal for a mad charge for the position occupied by the leaders. Would they
get there in time? Would they ever again see their friends if they didn't?
These were the thoughts of all concerned.
Some of the runners overtook their less fortunate companions, and reached
the desired position. I-lowever many lagged behind or fell by the wayside, and
their desperate cries were auite pathetic. I-lowever this was a time of 'every
man for himself', and few stopped to wait for their less fortunate comrades.
The distant roar soon grew, and suddenly some of the early comers were
picked up and hurried away. This was very distressing for those left behind,
and they watched sadly as their comrades were carried further and further
away, However some of them were still undaunted, and proceeded to pursue
their rapidly departing comrades. lvlost of the others soon followed their

The slap, on tlze prow, The creak, of the blocks,
The sough, in the sail,' The crack, of the boom,
The toss, of tlze ship, the ship, turned about,
As she rode with tlze gale. Azrokling the rocks.
The tulzine, of the wind,
The splash, of tlze foanzg
As the ship changed her course,
And went sailing for home.
THE CRICKET MATCH
20,000 breaths are held,
As Farlow slogs the ball,
20,000 yell "well held",
As it's caught just by the wall.
Tlze tenth man up and West not out
They need ten runs in all,
And 20,000 see West clout,
His wicket not tlze ball.
THE SPRING MCDRNING
The early sun shines down
Upon the deivy grass,
That Iigter will turn broiun
But sparkles now like glass.
The trees are dripping zvet,
And tlze leaves will soon appear.
Tlzough they hafzre not shofvn as yet
And the Slllll1llCl',S drawing near.
The mist is lying near tlze ground
B-ut still the sky is blue,
The shades are shrinking all around,
And tlze world is fresh and nefu.
