Woods, M.B.E., has just presented to the school Sadet Corps a very beautiful flag and this number of the Ashburian is dedicated to the past and present members of The Ashbury Cadet Corps. It seems fitting, therefore, that our Editorial should follow the same line of thought. We feel sure that the generosity of Major Woods was prompted by two main impulses: the desire to show appreciation for work well done, but also to impress upon all present and future Ashburians the supreme importance of tradition and team spirit which his particular gift symbolises. Tradition is the passing on of the unwritten practices and beliefs of past generations to posterity: and it is an important func- tion of a school such as Ashbury to build up its own traditions, to foster them and to pass them on to succeeding generations. As is pointed out elsewhere in this issue. each of the independent schools of Canada has built up a character and personality of its own which reflects its history and traditions. Two major wars in a quarter of a century have necessitated unwelcome breaking of tradition, too frequent changes in staff. and have made gaps in the ranks of Old Boys. Now, with an era of peace more assuredly ahead of us in a mechanical and changing age, where the finer things of life are too easily brushed aside, it is up to us all to foster and rebuild tradition and so pass on into the world men of character and person- ality who will resist the manifold temptations of easy living and moral laxity. We have all been delighted during the past year with the won- derful team spirit shown by those representing Ashbury in various branches of sport. But we are ALL members of an Ashbury "team", a team which is daily judged by all who come in contact with us as individualsg let us show thc samc team spirit which has won us acclaim in the sports world and as members of that team do our best to carry our flag high in honour respected by all. In conclusion lct us recall the words of Henry Newbolt: "To-day and here the fight's begun. ' Of the great fellowship you're free: Henceforth the School and you are one. And what you arc. thc race shall he." THE ASHBURIAN 9 SCHOOL NOTES SCHOOL opened on 12th September with an extremely full house of over 150 boarders, weekly boarders and day boys. We welcome to the staff our new school chaplain the Rev. W. J. Belford, B.A.Th., who succeeds Rev. A. J. Poole who has left us to become vicar of Vankleek Hill. We are also glad to welcome Mr. G. F. Heney, B.Sc., and Mr. J. G. M. Hooper, two Ashbury old boys. Towards the end of the term Mr. J. S. Newton left to take over the duties of Principal of Caledon Public School and we wish him all the best of good fortune in his new appointment. In Mr. New- ton's place we welcome Mr. Paul McFarlane, D.F.C., B.A., may his stay with us be long and happy. We were also fortunate in securing the services of Mrs. E. Fielder as assistant Matron. Conseoguent to certain reorganization in the school Mr. Brain was appointed Assistant Headmaster and his former duties as House- master arc now shared by Mr. Belcher for Senior and Middle School and Lt. Colonel E. G. Brine for the Junior Schoolg our con- gratulations to all three on their new appointments. Early in the term we received a visit from the Rev. G. P. Wooll- combe, founder and headmaster of Ashbury for 40 years. He gave a short address on how Ashbury received its name. So far two House Dances have been held and were much enjoyed by those participating. Hallowe'en was duly celebrated by the school. The Senior and Middle school enjoyed a "radio" quizz show put on by Colonel Brine, a sing-song with Mr. Sibley at the piano and refreshments kindly supplied by the Headmaster. Our thanks go to these mem- bers of the staff for their efforts on our behalf. The Junior School dressed up in many fine and fancy costumes, partook heartily of refreshments and had fun and games until retiring replete and sleepy to bedg Major Woods officiated and kindly awarded prizes to the fancy dress winners. 10 THE ASHBURIAN Again this year a choir has been formed under the able direction of Mr. Sibley and has added much to the chapel services. At the time of going to press we are looking forward to a Christmas Carol candlelight service. Due to the excessive polio this year a quarantine was imposed on the school until after the Thanksgiving week-end. All concerned co-operated wonderfully in helping to lessen the burden of the restrictions thus imposed and our particular thanks are due to Mr. Gleeson who gave up much of his time on Saturday evenings when he brought us a movie projector and some wonderful films. A number of boys interested in music were fortunate enough in being able to attend two of the concerts arranged by the Morning Music Club of Ottawag three more will be heard in the Easter term. In order to gave space to our wonderful new dining room now in the course of construction tand about which more will be said in our next issueb, the Library has been moved to what was last year's Senior Common Roomg and to accommodate our increased numbers this room has also to be used as a class room. The Senior Common Room has been moved to larger space formerly occupied by the Manual Training Room. The school was fortunate to be treated to an excellent and all too short violin recital by Mr. Hambourg on 13th December. This visit of Mr. Hambourg was kindly arranged by Miss Woodburn who also accompanied on the Piano most beautifully. The school has received a splendid gift of a movie projector from Mr. Gottlieb, father of Howard Gottlieb. A foretaste of some happy and educational Saturday evenings was given on 14th Decem- ber when three films were shown. STOP PRESS NEWS An Ashbury old boy Lt.-General Guy Simmonds has been ap- pointed Army Instructor at the Imperial Defence College in Eng- land. It is, we believe, the first time a Canadian has held this appointment. THE ASHBURIAN 11 CHAPEL NOTES MANY parents and boys attended the closing service on prize giving day of last year. The Rev. Dr. G. P. Woollcombe, the Rev. A. J. Poole and Mr. A. D. Brain took the service with the Head Boy John Smith reading the lesson. The Rev. A. J. Poole completed his duties as Ashbury's chaplain by conducting the service before assuming his new appointment in Vankleek Hill. This year's opening service was taken by the Headmaster and our new chaplain the Rev. W. J. Belford, a graduate of Bishop's Col- lege with a B.A. in Th. and of course Mr. Sibley was at the organ. The first Sunday of the term the Headmaster gave an inter- esting address which was up to his usual high standard of inspiration and encouragement. The origin and meaning of Holy Communion were briefly and adeptly explained to us by Mr. Brain in an address at our first 11:00 Communion Service on October 6th. The highlight of the Sunday services this term was the visit and sermon by the school's founder, the Rev. Dr. G. P. Woollcombe, on Oct. 20. We have been very fortunate in having these visits from one with such experience and leadership. Honorary Colonel Rev. C. Stone was our Poppy Day speaker this year. He explained to us the meaning of Remembrance Day and its increasing necessity. Our friend and frequent visitor to Week-day Chapel, the Rev. A. T. Carson preached at the Matins on Nov. 24. His sermon on Path Finders and "A New and Living Way" gave us all much food for thought. A On Youth Sunday we visited St. Bartholomew's Church. Elm- wood and the St. Bartholomew Sunday Schools were also present. The service was conducted by the rector. The Rev. A. T. Carson, with a brief address by our own Chaplain. 12 THE ASHBURIAN Our services have been brightened up considerably by our School Choir this term which is showing the results of regular prac- tices under Mr. Sibley's capable direction. We are pleased that Elmwood continues to visit us every other Sunday. As Tony Price has found he could not handle his duties as both a Prefect and Chapel Clerk, Donald Gardner has taken his place in t.he Chapel and Peter Lighthall has been appointed assistant. On 15th Dec., the last Sunday of the term a Candlelight Carol Service was held. The singing of the School Choir was a vast im- provement over last year, reflecting great credit on its members and Mr. Sibleyg particularly pleasing was the fine solo singing of Michael Gardner. The Chapel looked very beautiful lit by many candles and the whole service was most inspiring. CHAPEL 1 THE ASHBURIAN 13 CADET CORPS M ARCHING with the precision of veterans, members of the Ash- bury College Cadet- Corps concluded activities for the term. at the annual inspection held on May 23rd on the College grounds before the District Cadet Officer, Major T. C. Holmes of H.Q.M.D. 3. The parade was reviewed by Vice-Admiral H. E. Reid, C.B., R.C.N., Chief of the Naval Staff, accompanied by Major Holmes, Mr. A. D. Brain, acting Headmaster during the regrettable absence of the Headmaster, Mr. Ogden Glass in hospital, Lt. Cmdr. D. A. Collins, R.C.N., and the Corps Instructor, Major H. J. Woods, M.B.E. Mounting the saluting base, the Admiral was greeted by the playing of the General Salute by the Band of the Royal Canadian Air Force while the cadets stood at the "Present Arms." He then inspected the ranks, made up of three platoons of uniformed Cadets and a platoon of juniors aged seven to eleven years. THE ASHBURIAN 4 THE ASHBURIAN I5 At the conclusion of the inspection, thc Corps, under the Com- manding Officer, Cadet Major John Hooper of Rockcliffe, marched past the saluting base in column of platoons and again in column of route, Admiral Reid taking the salute. Following this, the boys gave demonstrations of squad and arms drill, signalling, first aid and stretcher drill, knots and lashings in- structions and rifle practice. In walking through the parties during this period, the Admira1's eye was caught by the workmanlike job of knot-tying being turned in under the eagle eyes of Navy instructors. Next the Cadets changed into gym kit and gave an exhibition of physical training, beginning with the junior class under their 11- year-old leader, Michael Mansur of Ottawa, and working up through the forms to the seniors, who concluded the display with a number of acrobatics which drew gasps from the assembled parents. The work of the boys on the parallel bar, vaulting horse and groundwork teams was of a high standard, and the grand finale of the show was effected by the construction of a huge multiform pyramid in which every boy in the parade had a part. Addressing the boys at the conclusion of the gymnastic display, the Admiral said, "Your fine marching and steadiness on parade are a credit to you and your instructors, and I would like to compliment you on a Hne performance." "I would like also," he said, "to thank you for the honor of ask- ing me to be here today. As an Old Boy of 35 years, I feel very proud." Major Holmes also paid tribute to the work of the Cadets and told them that the lessons in self-discipline and self control that they learned now would stand them in good stead in later years. After the reviewing party had left the field, the Cadets were marched off and formed up in the schoolyard and addressed by Mr. Brain. who thanked them for their excellent behaviour during the day. and led the boys in three cheers for Admiral Reid. Also performed at this time was the presentation of the Woods Trophy, presented for annual competition in 1912 by the Command- ing Officer of the G.G.F.G., and awarded this year to No. 1 Platoon 16 THE ASHBURIAN under Cadet Lieut. G. H. H. Read of Ottawa. The trophy was presented by Major Holmes. , Memories of past inspections were brought back to many old boys lining the sidelines, when they saw the tattered Union Jack which flew over the reviewing stand. This flag has been used for every inspection since the first in 1912. Large numbers of proud parents jammed the edge of the parade ground, some coming from as far away as New Jersey and New York. Among them was Admiral P. W. Nelles, former Chief of the Naval Staff, who watched keenly as his son went through the army drill. SHERWOOD CUP - CADET CHAMPIONSHIP WE are pleased to report that due to the splendid efforts of all 'anks of the Cadet Corps, both during the Cadet year and also at the Annual Inspection, No. 137 Ashbury College C. C. are once again holders of the "Col L. P. Sherwood, V.D., Cup" emblematic of the Cadet Championship for Schools in the Ottawa area. When it is considered that this trophy was won in competition with St. Patrick's, Nepean, Commerce, Tech., Glebe, etc., all Schools with Corps a good deal larger than Ashbury, this is no mean feat and congratulations are extended to all concerned for a good job of work. That we may have the pleasure of again reporting the holding of this trophy for 1946-47 is the sincere wish of the Editorial Staff of the Ashburian. , THE ASHBURIAN W, . - A I , ' ffl " W " ' 'A ' 34-N1 gem ff'1i'f 4 17 9?

Not only is he a sound opening bat with a variety of strokes and a medium-paced bowler with very steady length, but a quick and accurate fielder who made several brilliant catches in a very short season. He won both batting and bowling averages. Smith-Vice-Captain: A hard-working vice-captain who did not spare himself on any occasion, being a dangerous bowler and a stylish and forceful bat with a very punishing drive through mid-off. He was unlucky in the B.C.S. game, misjudging the ball on the leg stump before he was set, but he bowled very effectively. Read-Colours: A stubborn opening bat who is quick to take advantage of loose bowling. On occasion an effective slow bowler, and a steady safe fielder. Bulpit-Quick in the field and has a good eye, but should open up more at bat. Mingie-A very sound and hardworking fielder who is amazingly quick on his feet. Has not yet learned the fundamental batting strokes. Gault-Developed into a useful wicket keeper during the cur- tailed season. A strong hitter who must learn to wait for the right ones to hit. Breithaupt-Gave signs of natural batting ability. Cricket also involves fielding in which department he was not on his toes. Rolbertson-Gives promise as a getter of runs as he has a good eye and strong wrists. Is a powerful thrower. Pegram-Has some knowledge of the batting strokes but must be more aggressive. Somewhat slow in the Held and a weak thrower. Pettigrew-A stylish bat who must be more aggressive against mediocre bowling. Gives promise of becoming a useful change bowler. THE ASHBURIAN ' 19 Brown-A conscientious member of the field with a very power- ful throw. A natural hitter who must learn to wait for loose bowling Elliott-Has a good eye but was inclined to hit at the wrong ball An accurate throw. Hooper-A conscientious fielder and a steady batsman who is handicapped by poor eyesight. The season was an unfortunate one in many respects. We had consistently bad weather, which forced the cancellation of several practices and of two matches. It was also unfortunate in that .we failed to beat B.C.S. Nevertheless it was far from being unsuccessful, for all members of the field improved immensely and most enjoyed it to the same degree. We began the season with a team which promised to be strong in the field but weak at bat and this was the way it turned out. Rich- ardson and Smith were both excellent batsmen, and Read came through with some good innings but they received little help from the rest although on a few occasions, a plucky inning did much to raise the score. In the field we were a very good team. We had two excellent slow-medium bowlers in our captain and vice-captain, and a good change bowler in Read. The fielding was on the whole excel- lent, although in the match with B.C.S. two dropped catches lost us the major game of the season. We lost the first game played at the school on May 4th to a strong Cathedral side. We went in first but our batting failed us and We were all out for 51 with only Smith reaching double figures. We made a determined bid to retire them. but Brampton stayed in for a cautious 45 enabling them to beat us by 36 runs. Not in the least downheartened by this defeat we took on the best team in the O.V.C.C. three weeks later and in a low scoring game beat them by 20 runs-67-47, with Richardson 4215, Breithaupt t17J, Smith t10J and Robertson 195, all batting well. Sensational bowling by Smith and Richardson prevented any of the New Edin- burgh players from getting set. On the first of June we beat the Old Boys, who fielded a strong side, 102-64. Read came through with a fine 22. and he received some strong support from Smith I 155, Mingie U45 and Brown who 20 THE ASHBURIAN achieved the unusual distinction of hitting 17 in four balls and getting caught on the next one. Richardson and Smith again bowled splendidly, and with the exception of Lawrence who compiled 30 not out in a magnificent inning, none of the Old Boys stayed long at bat. Then a week later came the heart-break when we lost to our old rivals, B.C.S. on home grounds. Bishop's batted Brst and com- piled 64 runs of which Sewell and Solomon ran up 45, both after being dropped before they had scored any runs. 64 did not seem too much to beat but our batting went all to pieces. Richardson carried his bat for 19, but nobody stayed with him long enough to enable him to get the necessary runs, and we were all out for a paltry 43. As usual the House games produced the best cricket of the sea.- son. Connaught won them easily, since Woollcombe had only Smith in the bowling department, and the victors had Richardson and Read. In the first innings Connaught won by 34 runs. In the bat- ting, Richardson, Breithaupt and Read stood out for Connaught, and Smith for Woollcombe, while bowling honours were fairly evenly divided among Smith, Richardson and Read. In the second innings Connaught won by the terrific score of 205 for 5 to only 80 all out for Woollcombe. Read carried his bat for a chanceless 106 while Richardson got 60 and Kenny 16. Superior bowling soon disposed of Woollcombe. No review of the season would be complete without a tribute to the coaches. Mr. Brain and Mr. Powell, who relieved the former when the unfortunate illness of Mr. Glass forced him to discontinue his instruction, and to the Captain and Vice-captain who through their efforts both on and off the field set us all a fine example. "F or work and youth and friendships worth the prizing, For health and hope and strivings after right, For all ideals past our realizing, For hooks and music and the stars at night, For all things honourable, all things pleasant, The dream that lingers and the thought that flees, For past and future and the abiding present, Come what may. l render thanks for these." THE ASHBURIAN 21 T sc:HooL CLOSING 1946 ANADA has "desperate need" for young men with vision and v foresight, Admiral Percy Nelles told members of the graduating class at Ashbury College, Ottawa, at ceremonies here. Speaking at the 55th closing exercises of the School, Admiral Nelles called upon the graduates "to work for the betterment of a be- wildered world," and urged them to take an active interest in Can- ada's present and future, since upon the extent of their contribution would depend the peace and security of future generations. The year's activities were outlined by Mr. A. D. Brain, acting Headmaster, who reported a highly successful year in every field of endeavor, and paid high tribute to the Headmaster, Mr. Glass, who was prevented from being present through illness. "A fresh and more energetic spirit has been infused in Ashbury by Mr. Glass." said Mr. Brain. "The school has made remarkable progress and we look for even greater strides in the future." A short address of welcome was given by Colonel Newcombe. chairman of the Board of Governors. Colonel Newcombe also intro- duced Dr. H. M. Tory, President of Carleton College and Dr. G. P. Woollcombe, Ashbury's founder, both of whom assisted in the prize- giving. Also on the platform were Brig. C. H. Maclaren and Norman F. Wilson. of the Board of Governors, and Barclay Robinson, presi- dent of the Montreal Old Boys' Association. Valedictorian was John Smith, Captain of the School who pointed out that While "Many different types and nationalities are gathered together in this school . . . neither race nor creed stands between any of us." Top academic honors went to John Hooper, winner of the Governor-General's Medal, form prize, and Angus and Reid awards for distinction in French and Latin. The Nelson Shield and Sout-ham Cup were won by John Smith, Captain of the School, the Southam award standing for best record in sports and scholarship through the year. 22 THE ASHBURIAN Peter Richardson, Captain of the First Fields in Football and Cricket, received the MacCordick Cup for contributing most to school games. Richardson also accepted the B.C.S. Old Boys' Cup on behalf of the Senior Football team, and was winner of the Mrs. James Wilson Cricket Trophy.

CThe' following is the Valedictory Address delivered by John Smith, Captain of the School, at the closing on June 12th, 1946.5 There are few really great honours which can be bestowed upon a person during his lifetime-and the one which has been bestowed upon me today is assuredly one of these. Three years ago I arrived at Ashbury as a stranger to the school, the people and the climate-a circumstance not uncommon to many of my associates here. But every one of us agrees that that period of strangeness does not last long, for the very first feature which strikes a foreigner upon arriving in Canada is the friendliness of her people. There are many aspects of Ashbury which have impressed me during my stay, both inside and outside of the school-but there is one which stands out above all others. The spirit of comradeship is, I think, the most precious of the ideals which Ashbury possesses. Many different types and nationalities are gathered together in this school, and yet neither race nor creed stands between any of us. With the world in the state that it is today, I feel proud to think that we have learned here what is perhaps the most important lesson to humanity. Our predecessors set out before us to tight and win a battle of courage. When we leave tomorrow we shall be starting upon a dif- ferent battle. It will be our duty to insure the peace for which so many have given their lives. That- lesson, that truly great ideal which we have learned here. will enable us to fulfill our parts as citizens of a peace-loving world. Now. we must say farewell, but we shall always have with us in our future fields of endeavour, something to guide us and comfort us, something which is the very soul of this. our school. My only regret today is that Mr. Glass is not with us, for he has become in his first year here an Ashburian in a very real sense. But we would like to thank him. and the members of his staff who have done so much in preparing us for the road ahead. In closing may I quote a few lines from Longfellow's poem "The Building of the Ship"?- "Sail on, O ship of state, Sail on. O union strong and great, Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years. Is hanging breathless on thy fate." 24 THE ASHBURIAN SPORTS DAY JUNE 1946 THE Annual School Sports were held on June 12th in perfect Weather with the grounds, due to the untiring efforts of Mr. Oliver and his assistants, presenting a beautiful sight to the large number of spectators that turned out to watch the competition. Preliminary events and heats were run off on the 10th, leaving a minimum df three competitors in each event and as was expected the finals were very keenly contested and provided the spectators with many a thrill. The House Championship for the Wilson Shield was Won by Connaught House and the Individual Championships were won as follows: Senior-Browng Intermediate-Paterson, Junior-Mulli- gan. Due to prior organization under the able direction of Mr. Brain with his intimate knowledge of previous sports days and the many pit-falls that lie in wait for the unwary and inexperienced, every- thing went in clockwork fashion with no tedious pauses or mix-ups and parents and friends of the school were treated to a fast-moving programme of well-conducted and well-contested events through- out an enjoyable day. The officials were as follows: Judges-A. D. Brain, Esq.g Col. E. G. Brine, J. A. Powell, Esq. Clerks of the Course-Major H. J. Woods, W. R. Wright, Esq. Starter-A. B. Belcher, Esq. Timer--L. H.

SIX THE ASHBURIAN FIRST FOOTBALL FIELD 'UND F01 YI'lS.XI,I, FIICLD THE ASHBURIAN 29 RUGBY 1946 L OOKING in retrospect over Ashburyis football season 1946, we find we have a season to be proud of even if we did lose our matches with Lower Canada College and Bishopls College School and, consequently, the B.C.S. Old Boys' Cup. Being the victor is not the only source of delight in our tasksg this oft repeated statement is definitely true as far as last seasons football is concerned. We started off the football season with a good deal of con- fidence in our hopes of winning the Old Boys' Cup. N o team could have had a better coach than we did and added to this we were able to start practising three weeks before L.C.C. and B.C.S. as their school re-opening was delayed on account of polio. Although most of the stars of our 1945 team had left, new players seemed to be developing fast. Howie Clark and Walter Scott were elected Captain and Vice-Captain respectively, happy and logical choices. The first few football practices were hampered by extremely hot weather and the first two weeks were spent in light kit running through the plays, most of these were developed from the more successful of those used in 1945. Passes and the middle bucks dominated our offensive plays. We had about a month of practising before our first game. lt was very difficult to arrange for any teams to play Ashbury since our exhibition games had to be played on week-days and other local schools had a regular schedule to be played on week-ends. and even some we were able to arrange were literally washed out by rain. We were, however, able to arrange two games with the kind co-operation of Eric Roy g the 'first of these we won 10-0 and the second we lost 7-6. In the first of these games the touchdowns were scored by Dreyfus and Clark. The calling of the plays by Scott, Weavers long passes, bucks by Clark and Sosa and general good tackling were all features of this game. The first game was played a little more than two weeks before the game with Bishop's College School. Mr. Glass wanted two more exhibition games before the 'tclassicf' so the next week-end we played two games. On October 25th the Ashbury football team surged ahead to one of its most impressive victories. The opposition. the "Lower Town Terrors," was overwhelmed by a score of 40-0. The team gained a lot of confidence by winning this game, even though we knew that the opposition we would meet in future games of the 30 THE ASHBURIAN season would be much more stern. Clark scored two touchdowns by means of his unstoppable bucks. and both were converted by Weaver. Scott scored three touchdowns, one out of two being converted by Weaver and another extra point being scored on a pass, Scott to Knight. An interesting highlight of the game was Scott's 110 yard run for his second touchdown. Weaver and Hall fthe latter play- ing in the absence of Hamiltonj each scored one touchdown, with both converts failing. Hall's game was particularly good, consider- ing that it was the first time he had ever played in the backfield, as an added highlight to this performance, he intercepted a lateral pass and ran about forty yards to score his touchdown. Finally, in accounting for the fortieth point, an opposing back was tackled behind his touchdown line for a rouge. The second game was played on Saturday, October 26. This time we were beaten by Eric Roy's "Rough Riders" f although not the same teamj, 7-6. This game served its purpose by taking from us any over-confidence that may have existed. Our touchdown was made by Howie Clark on one of those bucks, but the convert failed. The extra point was scored by Weaver when he kicked the ball over their deadline for an automatic rouge. The opposing team was able to do similarly, and they beat us by converting their touchdown. At last, on November lst, the classical contest between Ashbury and B.C.S. took place. The team, as well as a few Ashbury spec- tators, travelled to B.C.S. by bus. There were three breakdowns, a fact which was not only annoying to everyone, but also tended to increase the restlessness of the tense, but not nervous team. The final score was 10-5 in favour of B.C.S. The weather was extremely bad, with intermittent showers occurring all day, and consequently turning the field into a quagmire. Ashbury lost the toss and kicked off. Buck Weaver. however, kicked the ball badly, and it only went about ten yards. After about four plays, the B.C.S. team had advanced the ball to our thirty yard line. The next play was a long pass, com- pleted for a touchdown. The convert failed, being beautifully blocked by Paterson. Everything seemed to happen in those first few minutes, and not until the last quarter did our morale fully recover. One of the fac- tors in keeping up our spirit was Clark's and Sosa's bucks, which never failed to gain some ground. In the second quarter the Ashbury team began to resemble the team that it really was. On one occasion, when the B.C.S. team had kr-ked the ball over our line, Scott ran it back forty-five yards. ' THE ASHBURIAN 31 The B.C.S. team kicked off to start the second half. We ran the ball back a few yards, but were unable to advance it further. The B.C.S. team could not do very much better, and the first half of the third quarter proved to be a kicking duel. We fell back a little, but B.C.S. was unable to score. Weaver received the ball behind our line, and immediately started to run towards the line. But he did not quite make it, and as he was tackled, the ball was knocked out of his hand 5 one of the B.C.S. halfbacks, Williams. promptly fell on it for a touchdown. The convert failed. In spite of all this, we really began to look "alive" in the fourth quarter. By means of a series of passes-mostly short-and line bucks, we advanced the ball to the B.C.S. ten-yard line. But we could penetrate no furtherg a line buck and a pass netted us a gain of about three yards. However, Scott. observing that the last pass had moved the ball over to the left side of the field, decided to try an on-side kick. He told Weaver to kick to the right side of the field. The kick was perfectly placedg and as the ball descended both Scott and a B.C.S. man went up for it at the same time. Scott was able to knock it down, and fall on it for a touchdown. The con- vert, however, failed. The morale of the Ashbury team was now very hgh, and we were determined to score again in the remaining three or four minutes of the game. We kicked to the B.C.S. team, and held them for two downs. On the third down they kicked to us, and we began our advance down the field. Our line bucks and passes were forcing the B.C.S. team back to their goal line not inch by inch, but yard by yard. On one occasion Dreyfus had gone out for a long pass I about thirty yardsl and although covered by four or five B.C.S. boys. he completed the pass by making a. spectacular leap into the air. But just when our hopes were so high, one of our passes was intercepted. As there were only two downs remaining in the game we were unable to score. This was a bitter disappointment to all of us. for we felt that if we had had five more minutes in which to play we most certainly would have won. Ashbury suffered only one in jury--that was to Juan de Sosa. He was hurt in the first quarter, but said nothing about it until he col- lapsed. exhausted. at the end of the game. He was immediately taken to the hospital, for we were afraid that he had suffered some internal injuries. Fortunately, we were wrong. and he was soon back at school. A word should be said about the boys who did not score touch- downs. for twelve men are required to make up a football team, and on each man rests some responsibility. Something should be men- 32 THE ASHBURIAN tioned of Clark's and Sosa's forceful bucking, Dreyfus' and Knight's pass receiving and the strong defensive play of Paterson. There were many other things that could be praised, but they are too numerous to mention here. The next and final game to be played was the annual fixture with LiC.C. The game was on November 16, and it might be added that the weather was perfect for football. The final score was 9-0 in favour of L.C.C. L.C.C. kicked off. Weaver received the ball and ran it back a few yards. The next play, a sneaker pass, Scott to Knight, was completed: Knight was almost away for a touchdown. but after advancing the ball about 20 yards he was tackled. Two more plunges by Clark gave Ashbury another first down. A short pass, Scott to Knight, advanced the ball to L.C.C.'s 30 yard line. But on the next play, an end run, we were thrown for a loss of two yards. So Ashbury had to kick. Weaver's kick was caught by Coburn about twelve yards behind the L.C.C. touchdown line, but he eluded the on-coming tacklers and ran the ball back to the L.C.C. 20 yard line. The next play, a forward pass, was completed for another 20 yards. After an eight yard plunge, a forty yard pass was completed. But Ashbury held after that, and L.C.C. was forced to kick. Weaver received Darling's kick behind the Ashbury goal line, and was unable to cross before being tackled. That made the score 1-0, L.C.C. On the first play from the twenty-five yard Iine, Ashbury advanced the ball eleven yards. But on the next play, a forward pass was intercepted. Ashbury held L.C.C. to five yards for two downs, the third down was a kick. Weaver received it behind the goal line, but this time he was able to run back to our two yard line. After advancing the ball about six yards, Ashbury kicked. Darling received the ball and returned it about ten yards. After a plunge for three yards, an L.C.C. pass was intercepted by Paterson. Ashbury was held, and therefore kicked, but the L.C.C. receiver, Darling, promptly kicked back for a rouge. This made the score 2-0 for L.C.C. In two downs Ashbury advanced the ball three yards from the 25 yard line, so on the third down Ashbury kicked. But L.C.C. fumbled the kick, and in the scramble for the ball, Paterson fell on it. The quarter then ended. Although a plunge by Clark made seven yards, we were unable to make a first down, and the ball went over to L.C.C. A sleeper pass was completed for 20 yards. Then an end run with Webster carrying the ball netted L.C.C. another 20 yards. With two more forward passes L.C.C. scored a touchdown. The convert was com- THE ASHBURIAN 33 pleted also. This made the score 8-0, L.C.C. Ashbury chose to kick off. The kick was received by Lafond. who was tackled hard by Clark at center field. Ashbury held L.C.C.. thus forcing tlieni to kick. Scott received the ball and ran it back 10 yards. Ashbury tried two passes, the Hrst being completed for three yards, Scott to Dreyfus, but the second was intercepted and run back ten yards. The next play for L.C.C. was a pass completed for 20 yards. Scott received the kick on the next play behind the goal line, but crossed it before being tackled. After Ashbury made three consecutive first downs, the first half ended. L.C.O. kicked off to start the second half. Weaver received the ball and ran it back 20 yards. Ashbury was unable to make a first down. They kicked, and the ball was received by Darling. After making a first down, a forward pass by L.C.C. was intercepted by Knight. But Ashbury could not make a first down. Weavers kick was immediately returned for a rouge. This made the score 9-0. The fourth quarter saw Ashbury make several outstanding plays. Dreyfus made a spectacular catch, for twenty yards. Scott. in the Hnal minutes of the game, recovered an on side kick. and gained 40 yards. Weaver then plunged twelve yards. But just when we w-ere so close to scoring, L.C.C. held, and the ball changed hands. From that point on the teams remained in a deadlock. And so ended our football season. We were unfortunate in not being able to have on Old Boys' game this year, but we are looking forward to playing one next year. Now the early morning practices and tired looks are forgotten. But one thing no one would for- get were the efforts of our coach, Mr. Glass. He was out there on the field all the time. never giving up for lost, always patient: with- out him our football season could not have been as it was. SECOND FOOTBALL FIELD At the start of the season, the field comprised the 24 boys next. roughly speaking, in combined size-age-weight-skill to the members of the first field. Practices soon showed us that many of the players had little or no idea of the game so that much of the allotted games time that should have been devoted to the timing of plays and other field tactics had to be spent on the fundamentals of the game. In consequence, our plays were few in number and far from smooth when the team took the field in the early part of the season, 34 THE ASHBURIAN This was particularly noticeable in our first match against the Irish Devils, an informal group largely composed of high school students, most of whom ga.ve evidence of some experience of the game, notably in forward passing. The School tried hard against a larger and more experienced ibut by no means diabolicalj team and were handily beaten 15-0. In spite of this the game was an invaluable experience and most of our worst shortcomings, not so discernible in practice, became quite evident. That our first match was a sobering experience was soon shown by a much improved team that next played against the Lindenlea Juniors in our second game. Some of our previous errors were repeat- ed but not our worst ones and after four short periods of clean and entertaining football the score remained 0-0, an encouragement to all concerned. It is unusual enough for such a score to arise in Can- adian rugby but what was more, neither team ever had possession inside their opponent's 25 yard line. Our third game was a return match with the Irish Devils who this time brought along a team somewhat lightened but by no means less skillfull, and on this occasion we lost again but only 6-0. The Seconds again played well and it was obvious that the previous two games had helped us to become a real team in skill and spirit. By this time the long anticipated match with Lakefield Prepar- atory School was definitely set for Saturday, Nov. 16 and on which date they descended on us in red and green. The weather had been most propitious all week and the possibility of having to play in snow was finally dispelled when the morning broke clear and cool with a light frost during the night to make the ground firm. The Lakefield team, under their Headmaster, G. Winder Smith, had an average weight within a pound of ours, both regulars and total teamsj so everyone present looked forward to a close and inter- esting game-they were not disappointed. Lakefield, being visitors, elected to kick off and we chose the north end in the hope of heaving some successful passes against the sun. Perhaps the prospect of finally playing a team of our own size and age unnerved us for it was soon obvious that the School was not playing its best football. Lakeiield held a decidedly upper hand and only some high and determined defensive play kept the visitors from scoring, whereas we hardly even looked dangerous. THE ASHBURIAN 35 The second half was an example of fast and skillful junior foot- ball by both teams. Ashbury seemed to have a slight edge on the visitors for, although their line was showing no signs of weakening for our plungers. our end runs were working smoothly and were sev- eral times good for 15 and 20 yard gains. We maintained our slight superiority on the ground but Lakefield countered with a somewhat more efficient forward attack and until the last minute of the game there didn't seem to be "much in it," and neither team could be said to have dominated the play. Shortly after the final minute signal went up, a Lakefield back intercepted one of our forward passes and made a long and thrilling run only to be forced to step into touch by one of our backs at roughly the Ashbury 5 yard line. On their first down Lakefield threw an incomplete forward pass and on their second down, not realizing the imminence of the final whistle, elected to try to plunge over for a major score instead of kicking for a single point and victory. Our line hurled their plunge back for no gain and the game ended in a scoreless tie. In comment on the seasons progress it must be stated that with a few notable exceptions the team was deplorably weak on two fundamentals: tackling everywhere on the field and charging in the lineg without these a team is merely a rabble no matter how expert the ball carriers. We also made the mistake of trying to throw long forward passes without the players who could throw them, and of going through the season without developing or finding a kicker. On the other hand. special mention must be made of Ross I C93 lbs.j for his fast and tricky running as well as for clean. hard tackling at critical momentsg of Darby for all round enthusiasm. stalwart plunging and sound defensive play on the secondaryg and of the Captain, Baskerville I, who was a conscientious leader throughout the season and a tower of strength on defence and a substantial yard-gainer against Laketield. As for the team as a whole, they gave a very good account of themselves throughout the season and the improvement in their standard of play and their attitude towards the game on the part of the younger and less experienced players was most encouraging. THE ASHBURIAN FIRST SOCCER FIELD THE ASHBURIAN SOCCER 1946 Characters- ' BORJA.-Captain and centre half. A very steady and sure- kicking centre half who always seems to be just where he should be at the right. time forming a.n excellent pivot for the team. A very hard worker and a tower of strength on the defence. CRAY.-Vice-captain and outside left. Has improved a lot in technique since last season but has lost a little of his speed and could be more aggressive. Is steadily improving in sureness of kick- ing and placing passes. SETTON.-Goal-keeper. A new-comer to the team this year and shows a natural flair for goal-tending. Played an excellent game all season on both the First and Under Fifteen Teams and shows promise of being a star in future seasons. HENEY I.-Right full back. Played his usual steady game on defence all season. Not a spectacular player but a good team man and a very reliable defence player and sure kicker. V1LLALoBos.-Left full back. Another new-comer to the team this year who earned his place and played well all season. Lacks polish but is hard-working and aggressive and will improve. Paired well with Heney I to make a sound back line. SUDAR.-Right half back. Also new to the team this year-a very good half who tackles, kicks and passes well. Played an excel- lent game on the half line all season. FOWLER.-Left half back. The most improved player on the team. Played a strong game on the half line all season and is aggres- sive and hard-working. Lacks finesse but will improve with prac- tice and should develop into an excellent soccer player. Liz.-Started the season at outside right but was moved to centre-forward for two reasons: Cab to check his tendency to roam and fbj to take full advantage of his scoring ability. An excellent schoolboy class soccer player, naturally good with his feet, fast, aggressive and a sure shot on goal. HENEY II.-Inside right. Although handicapped by physical size compared to the rest of the team and his opponents he plays a hard and steady game on the forward line, is quick on the ball and never allows himself to be beaten. Played very well all season and will undoubtedly be more effective as he grows. THE ASHB URIAN UNDER FIFTEEN SOCCER FIELD THE ASHBURIAN 39 PRITCHARD II.-Outside right. Formerly a half back, he had a bit of difficulty settling in to his new position which calls for more speed and quick accurate centres from the side-line, but improved with each game and should be very good next year. STAPLEY.--Inside left. Came up from the junior field this year and showed sufficient promise to be placed on the first team. Played well all season, but as is expected lacks both polish and ag- gressiveness. Showed continual improvement and with further practice will develop into a good soccer player. THE SOCCER SEASON. Practices began immediately after school opening and although it was feared that due to quite a few of last year's players going over to Rugby the Soccer team would be weak it became obvious early in the practice sessions that we would have a good all-round well-balanced team. The first test came on October 19th when our old friendly rivals Sedburgh School travelled to Ashbury to triumph over us by a score of 2-0, both goals being scored by Nickerson. The game was a hotly contested one with our team showing by far the better technique but lacking punch while the Sedburgh team were very aggressive and seemed imbued with the will to win. Admitting that we had the misfortune to be "out-lucked" right in the opponents' goal-mouth several times, Sedburgh are to be congratulated on the win because they really played "all out" for thei-r school. In winning this game they apparently taught a lesson because in the return match played at Montebello on October 26th, the situation as regards aggressive- ness was completely reversed. Playing on a small and very muddy field we out-scored our opponents by a score of 4-1 and dominated the game throughout. The first goal scored by Ashbury was some- what of a fluke, the greasy ball, shot by Liz, slipping from the goalie's hands and going through the posts. After that, however, there was no doubt about the scoring ability of Liz who counted twice more and Heney II who scored once. Late in the second half Pat Petti- grew scored the only Sedburgh counter and it was a tired and much- begrimed bunch of boys who trudged off the field at the final whistle. As usual we were entertained right royally by Mr. and Mrs. Wood. the staff and boys and returned home with pleasant memories of another enjoyable visit to Sedburgh School, the like of which. it is hoped, will long continue. Miss Barker, Col. Brine, Mr. Belford and Mr. Heney accompanied the team on the trip in cars very kindly supplied by Mr. Heney and the Padre and all expressed themselves as having had a most enjoyable trip. As each team now had won 40 THE ASHBURIAN one and lost one it was decided to play a third game if possible and on Saturday, November 16th, Sedburgh came to Ashbury where the teams battled to a 2-2 tie played in perfect football weather. The opening minutes of the game had barely ticked by when an unfor- tunate accident occurred. Ashbury weretattacking strongly and Liz when shooting from close in was tackled by Norris who in saving what looked like a sure goal suffered a cracked ankle bone. He was immediately rushed to the Ottawa Civic Hospital in Mr. Heney's car accompanied by Mr. Donaldson of Sedburgh and the 12th man of the Sedburgh team took his place. This injury was keenly regret- ted by both teams and our best wishes for a speedy recovery are extended to Norris with the hope that no damage of a permanent nature has been done. When play resumed the teams took a little while to settle down again and play was "spotty" until Sedburgh organizing an attack put Nickerson in scoring position and he found the target to open the scoring. Ashburys' equalizer a short while later was the result of a scramble. Liz had shot and the goalie having difficulty in handling it suddenly disappeared under a mass of both attackers and defenders and the ball and players all rolled through the posts, so the credit for the goal goes to Liz for the initial shot. Less than three minutes later Liz again got through the defence and this time made no mistake with his shot, giving the Sedburgh goalie no chance with a sizzling drive to put us in the lead 2-1, and this ended the scoring in the first half. After about 10 minutes of the second half had gone by Nickerson of Sedburgh Went tearing through the Ashbury defence in his usual headlong style and made no mis- take in beating Setton for the tying goal. Both Liz and Heney II had hard luck with shots on goal during the game, Liz hitting the crossbar and uprights no less than four times with shots that but for an inch or two would have been sure goals. In the opinion of the many spectators who watched it this was voted the best game of the year. UNDER 15 SOCCER. It was with keen regret that the Coach had to announce to the Under 15 Team that there would be no play for the Cup this year between ourselves, L.C.C. and Selwyn House due to the outbreak of polio in Montreal. They started out on the practice sessions with high hopes and experienced great disappointment at there being no league, but kept practicing keenly and hoping for a game. When the situation was mentioned to Mir. Wood of Sedburgh he immedi- ately offered to bring a young team down to play and they arrived here on Wednesday, November 20th, to play what was to be the last soccer game of the season against an outside school. THE ASHBURIAN 41 Once again we were favoured by the weatherman and the teams kicked off at 2:00 p.m. sharp on a mild and sunny day, Ash- bury winning the toss. The game was a good and exciting one to watch and the brand of soccer served up by both teams was particularly good for juniors with the Ashbury eleven showing a decided edge over their oppon- ents. Owen opened the scoring for Ashbury early in the first half with a nice low shot from the wing to just inside the post and Cray followed later with a very good rising drive shot from just beyond the penalty area in front of goal which gave the Sedburgh goalie no chance at all, leaving the score 2-0 in our favour at half time. After the rest the same fast pace was maintained with Ash- bury pressing hard all the time and the Sed-burgh defence working like trojans to keep their goal intact. About midway through the half Cray shot for goal and in the scramble following the rebound again got his toe to the ball for the third counter which ended the scoring for the match leaving Ashbury the victors by a score of 3-0. Sedburgh seemed to be not quite as experienced as Ashbury in kicking and ball management but made up for this in hard work and the game was not as one-sided as the score would indicate. The Ashbury team played a far superior ganie to any they had done in evening practice and it is not the intention to single out any one player for commendation-the forwards passed accur- ately and well, and were more aggressive than usual, while the defence as a whole blocked and kicked Well and backed each other up when tackling the opposing forwards so that Setton was never in danger throughout the game. And now at the end of another enjoyable and very satisfactory Soccer season I would like to thank all the players on the Soccer field whether they placed on a team or not, for their keen atten- tion to instruction, their earnest and constant attendance at practice and games. and also add a word of praise for the undoubted im- provement noticeable in their play. H. J. WOODS. Soccer Coach. 42 THE ASHBURIAN HOCKEY PREVIEW At last we are back in the Ottawa Senior Interscholastic League and this will undoubtedly and inevitably build up the standard of hockey at Ashbury. With very little material left to us from last year and no player of outstanding ability we yet have that greatest of all assets-Team Spirit. Our first appearance in public was quite a lesson on crowd psychology-received on the ice almost in dead silence it was a very short time before the fighting spirit of our young team caught the fancy of the crowd and they well deserved the vociferous applause received. In pre-league games we drew S-8 with a Carleton College team and in a return game lost 6-3. In two games with the "Irish Devils" we shared the honours. The actual league games will be reviewed in our Hockey Notes for the next issue of the Ashburian. Our best wishes go to our plucky team-Keep Up The Good Work! MUSIC Music is gradually becoming an integral part of the school life at Ashbury. Music Appreciation classes are held twice a week for students in the Junior School. Peter and The Wolf tProkofieffJ, The Sorcerer's Apprentice CDucasj, Dance of The Hours tPonchielliJ, March Slave tTschai- kowskyj, William Tell Overtures CRossinijr are some of the recorded selections studied during the term as well as piano compositions of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Prakofieff. When it is possible an attempt is made to co-relate music with art, history and literature. The little boys of Form I enjoy "doing" more than "listening", so this year a Rhythm Band was formed. There has been considerable enthusiasm shown by the Senior Boys in response to concerts sponsored by the Morning Music Club. The first of a series of informal lectures recitals was given prior to the Christmas closing by Mr. Clement Hambourg, a talented young violinist from Toronto. The highlight of the evening was a Mozart Sonata. for piano and violin. It was followed by two groups of descriptive compositions which brought into display the technical powers of the yiolinist.

THE ASHBURIAN EDUCATION IN THE INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS FOREWORD In the spring of 1944 the Headmasters of the Ontario inde- pendent or private schools met to discuss the advisability of sub- mitting a brief on elementary and secondary education to the Director of Education for the Province. In 1945 a Royal Com- mission on Education was appointed by Premier Drew and the Secretary invited the private schools to submit briefs to this Commssion. It was decided by the Headmasters that it would be more effective if the nine schools in the Province of Ontario which are members of the Headmasters' Association presented a cor- porate brief. This brief was prepared and presented to The Royal Commission on February 21st, 1946. It is reprinted so that friends and supporters of the schools concerned may be fully advised of the nature of the presentation made on behalf of these schools to the Commission. It should perhaps be explained that membership in The Headmasters' Association C Canadian Independent Schoolsj is limited to boys' schools which are non-profit-making, and which are operated by independent boards as educational trusts. The Chairman of the Royal Commission on Education: The Ontario members of the Canadian Headmasters' Association appreciate your invitation to present a brief for consideration by the Royal Commission. The Ontario schools represented on the Head masters' Association are: Appleby College, Oakville. Ashbury College. Ottawa. Hilltield School. Hamilton. Lakefield Preparatory School, Lakelield. Pickering College. Newmarket. Ridley College, St. Catharines. St. AndreW's College, Aurora. Trinity College School, Port Hope. A Upper Canada College, Toronto. These schools will be referred to in this brief as "these schools and not by the conventional but inaccurate term "private schools 43 44 THE ASHBURIAN These schools were founded. in most. cases many years ago, by groups of citizens who were not satisfied with the programme of education offered by state schools at that time. ln particular, it is probably right to say that the founders and early friends of these schools had some or all of the following ideas in mind: 1. They wished religious instruction to be given and regular services to be held. They saw the advantages of a co-operative commun- ity life based on the ideals of the Christian religion. 2. They desired their children to have regular physical training with participation in games and athletics. 3. They believed in elementary military training through the medium of Cadet Corps. 4. They wished additional studies to be included in the curriculum, such as music, art, shopworkg they saw the advantage of begin- ning the study of foreign languages before High School age, and they wanted opportunities to be offered for speaking, debating, dramatics. 5. They felt it necessary to have smaller numbers in the classes and the teachers to be men of wide experience as well as learning. 6. They realized the value and importance of the individual contacts and help, possible only when masters and boys live together. 7. They preferred their boys to live in buildings of some real beauty surrounded by broad fields. It should be mentioned that these schools are incorporated as public educational trusts, as companies without share capital in which there is no individual proprietary interest and no distribution of profits by way of dividends. All profits are used to support and develop the work of the school. Though these schools are not under the direct administration of the Provincial Department of Education, they are closely associ- ated with the provincial system in that- ' Cab a majority of their pupils have previously attended the provin- cial scholsg Cbj most of their graduates proceed to provincial universities, Ccj the courses in their higher grades conform to provincial require- ments, Cdj their Middle School grades are inspected by the Department of Education, feb many of their masters have been trained in. and are qualified to teach in provincial schools and colleges, Cfj many schools have close connections with local schools in their community. THE ASHBURIAN 45 There are. however, differences between these schools and the provincial schools and it is the differences rather than the similar- ities which this brief will stress. In the first place. each school is under the control of an inde- pendent governing body who delegates a large measure of their auth- ority to the Headmaster whom they appoint. These Governors are business and professional men interested in education and the com- munity at large. and as men of responsibility serve and support these schools without remuneration. The Headmaster in turn is advised by the members of his staff. Each school. therefore. is alone respons- ible for its own success or failure. The signatories of this brief believe that the freedom and sense of responsibility resulting from this independence are factors of prime importance in education. Each of these schools has built up a character and personality of its own which reflect its history, traditions. local environment. and the influence of outstanding members. past and present, of the school community. It follows that there are differences of character and organization among these schools. Though the majority are boarding schools. some admit both boarders and day boys. and one admits day boys only. Some of the schools have separate elementary tpreparatoryj schools. While in others there is no marked division between elementary and secondary education. The majority teach foreign languages in grade VII and VIII. while one follows the prac- tice of the provincial system. There are also variations in their ath- letic programmes. These schools have. despite their differences. certain common characteristics : 1. Headmasters are not restricted in their choice of the members of their staff. 2. These schools are free to supplement the curriculum as laid down by the Provincial Department of Education and to modify it except in matriculation grades. Hence the curriculum is neither static nor stereotyped but reflects the tradition of the school. the ideas. interests. and special abilities of the teaching staff. 3. These schools believe that one of their most important responsi- bilities is the spiritual development of the boy. In endeavour- ing to satisfy this need. religious instruction, formal services. informal discussion of religious questions and private study of the Bible are some of the methods employed. 46 ' THE ASHBURIAN 4.

These schools are not co-educational. 7. Each of these schools has introduced into Canada or further developed some of the following educational ideas: tal The House system. tbl Country camps and outdoor education. tcj Intelligence tests. tdl Military training. tel Guidance. ffl Arts and crafts. lfgl Music and drama. 8. These schools offer many scholarships and bursaries which make possible the attendance of promising boys whose financial standing would otherwise render it impossible. THE ASHBURIAN 47 9. This school year the ratio of masters to boys in these schools is 1 to 12.4. 10. The capital invested in these schools is made up of private en- dowments, gifts and bequests. Except for the small sum paid to those schools which provide cadet training, they receive no grants from either the Dominion or Provincial governments and they receive no financial assistance from the municipalities other than partial exemption from municipal taxation. These voluntary contributions and the fees paid by parents who also pay their share of municipal school tax represent an import- ant addition to the money available for education in the province. Another financial benefit to the province lies in the fact that these schools have a large number of boarders from other Can- adian provinces, other parts of the Empire, and from foreign countries, who bring additional revenue into the province and into the municipalities where these schools are situated. 'I' 'I 'I 'lf fl' In this brief we have tried to indicate some of the reasons why there has been founded, and maintained for a considerable time in this province, a group of Schools. private in their financing, largely independent in their operation but allied in many ways with the state system. We believe that the purpose and ideals which moved founders in their day and generation were validg we believe. how- ever, that those purposes and ideals are equally pertinent to our own times. No matter how much they may disagree on method and tech- nique, all educators will agree that one of the ultimate aims of edu- cation is to develop a continually improving quality of citizenship. But the qualities that are relevant to the citizen are entirely depend- ent on the nature of the society in which that citizen is to participate: and since we are endeavouring to build a democratic society the edu- cational means utilized must at all points be consonant with the ends to be achieved. Unless much of our talk of war aims is to be considered as hav- ing been only so much "propaganda," we must accept the doctrine of "freedom" as a fundamental principle of education in a demo- cratic society. This "freedom" must be interpreted in a variety of ways. The first of these is the basic freedom of the subject to speak. to think. to Worship, to organize. A corollary is the freedom of students and scholars to pursue truth and to proclaim their findings even though they may be at variance with the prevailing modes and conventions. And it is not only natural but desirable that there should exist in our society institutions dedicated to the func-tions of 48 THE ASHBURIAN teaching and learning-institutions that may vary widely each from the other but all devoted to the production of citizens of character and of intellectual competence ready to take their parts in the strug- gle to build a more ideal society and "the better world." An ever-present danger in any state system of education is that the fundamental administrative requirements cause us to lose sight -perhaps ever so gradually-of the necessity for a large measure of individual variety and the freedom by which such variation may alone be nurtured and encouraged. We, of these schools, grant that much has been done to offset this tendency by the development of flexible curricula, the elimination of formal external examinations and some encouragement to progressively-minded educators to carry on experiments within the system. But it is our feeling, neverthe- less, that a "system," organized on a province-wide basis and, in all probability, with an increasing portion of the finances coming from a central source, runs the risk, in the course of time, of becoming stereotyped and standardized to the detriment of the educational aims which the system itself professes. It is our firm belief that the existence in this province of a group of schools related to but rela- tively independent of the state system is, and Will continue to be. a wholesome corrective to these tendencies. As has been indicated above, all of these schools have a specific religious motivation in their programmes. Without entering into the much-discussed question of the place of religious instruction in the public school system it is obvious that the "private" nature of these schools permits of religious instruction of a more definite and positive character than seems possible with the heterogeneous popu- lation of the state schools. And there are many parents who desire this type of education for their children. Most of these schools are closely allied in basic theory and in practice to the "public schools" of Great Britain. At a time of social flux and unrest such as that in which We are living it is surely worth while that those values which have become part of the British edu- cational heritage should continue to receive specific emphasis in the educational life of this province. These schools have special opportunities for carrying out edu- cational experiment. Their small size. their freedom from the THE ASHBURIAN 49 formal routines of a large system, their high ratio of staff to students, all contribute to a flexibility that is difficult to achieve in the state system. In varying degree these schools have utilized this oppor- tunity to try out new methods, and techniquesg that they will con- tinue to do so in increasing measure is one of our fondest hopes. It is possible that a somewhat closer integration between these schools and the schools of the state system would be of advantage in trans- ferring the results of such educational experiment and investigation to the state system. It is even possible that these schools might be asked to pursue certain studies which could with advantage be car- ried on with greater controls and supervision that are possible in their corporate community life. Many of the workers in this 'field feel that there is a further special function that these schools fulfil, or could fulfil with profit to our whole community life. One of the great weaknesses of a democracy is a tendency to level down all performance to a standard of dull mediocrity. There is a vital need-and never more so than the present time--for citizens above the average in training, in vision and in character-in other words for leaders. We claim no monopoly of students or graduates of this type but we believe that there is evidence to prove that a large percentage of our graduates have taken positions of leadership both in war and in peace and rendered outstanding service to the community as a whole. The nature of their organization. the training in responsibility in the microcosm of school life, the varied training and background of their teachers-these and other special facilities make them peculiarly suited for training boys of unusual and exceptional ability. With us. it is perhaps as true as it is with similar schools in Great Britain that the facilities offered by these schools should be extended to a larger number rather than that they should be in any way restricted. In conclusion may we point out that though we do in a measure "go our own way." we recognize that we are engaged in a common task with all the schools and teachers of this province and this domin- ion. It is our desire to co-operate as fully and wholeheartedly with all of them as is possible in the achievement of our common goals. We would be happy to be asked to share in the larger life of the educational community by participation in provincial ccnnmittees on educational matters so that from the mutual sharing of experi- ence all parties might bf-ncfit. 50 THE ASHBURIAN We are grateful for the opportunity offered to us of presenting some of our considerations on the subject of education. We would re-assert our desire to make the maximum possible contribution to the development of young Canadians within this provinceg to further this end we value our present status but we would welcome any and all suggestions for greater co-operation in the common task in which we are all engaged and those ideals which we mutually cherish.

Dear Sir: I have been asked by you to give the "low down on our Old Boys now at Bishop's," with special emphasis on the fact that there is only to be "as much of it as is fit for publcation in a school maga- zine." Reluctantly I must, therefore, skip over our nocturnal and external activities and pass on to other doings-herewith and forth- with the report: The Ashbury group here at the moment is the largest to have ever been at this university at one time, in fact we form 2.457 per cent of the total enrollment Call right, so what if that only comes to 5 students, still that's somethingj. And those already here can only hope that this percentage will not only be kept up but will be increased in years to come. With one exception, Tony Lee, we are all in one building, which though constructed in 1891 is known as the New Arts build- ing. Lee is encamped in the "Old Lodge," with the rest of the hoi- poloi as befits a man of his position and prestige. Tony 1QAshbury '38-'42J is the senior Old Ashburian here. He is president of Second Year, and as such is responsible for all the freshmen. Besides this he is one of the leading athletes here and was last year chosen "most valuable player" on the football team, a title he definitely lived up to this season. Tony also played on the University hockey team. Edwin Victor Burk Pilgrim seems to have gotten his fingers in every local pie, and though at times it seems that he would run out of either fingers or pies. he always comes up with that indom- itable smile on his face just asking for more. To begin with Pil was chosen Senior Freshman, as such he seems to get out of all the dirty work-please don't take that seriously. he really works harder than most-and helps Lee organize the other poor fish in First Year. THE ASHBURIAN 53 On the side he:- C15 played on the football team till an injury forced him outg C25 took part in the plays: Q35 is a member of the Skinner Trophy debating team, 445 is trying to make the hockey team, Q55 is at the moment trying out for the I.L'.D.L. debating team, 165 is getting good marks, 1,75 is a budding radio artistg and C85 is madly pursued by all the local females. He still manages to sleep, very little, and eat, very much. Next on the list is Raymond "Boots" Boutin, who graced Ash- bury with his presence in the years between 1938 and 1944, and who after a term in the F.A.A. is now taking a B.A. course here. Like the rest of us he hopes to continue this after the Christmas examina- tions but at the moment is spending his time between debating and dramatics. He represented First Year in the debates and hit .500 with one win and one loss. In the plays he took the part of a pompous English gentleman, and turned in a creditable perform- ance. "7 Rideau Gate" 's contribution to Ashbury and Bishopls is standing by my elbow, gloating, so one can not say anything nasty about him-at least not right now. Seriously though, William Allen Nelles is as usual working hard doing not only his own job but every- body else's as well. Like Boutin's his main interests lie in debating and dramatics and he is taking an active part in both, when not spending his time dissecting frogs or trying to blow up the place from some lab. Bill is also acting as Assistant Advertising Manager of the Campus, the undergraduate newspaper. Yours truly is as usual working hard at trying to get out of work, but unfortunately this is not succeeding for work here just seems to pile up too fast. On the side I am working on the Campus and Yearbook, debating, and writing sports for the local rag. With all the news when you want it. Respectfully yours, MICHAEL BIRCHWOOD. K Silver5. 54 THE ASHBURIAN The Editor, Ashburian, Ashbury College, Ottawa. Dear Sir: Col. Brine has asked me to write you a letter concerning Old Boys' news from McGill for your fall issue of the Ashburian. I am very much afraid that I cannot give you much news of the Old Boys at McGill, nor at Dawson. The truth is that there are only two Ashburians at Dawson, John McKinley and myself. I can, however, tell you what life is like at the famous Dawson College, known to its graduates as "Belsen." You probably know already that Dawson is a converted R.C.A.F. station into which McGill has overflowed. All First Year students have been placed out here with the unfortunate exception of the female students! The whole idea is at first, rather grim but after a few weeks here one begins to realize its advantages. Dawson is about thirty- five miles from Montreal and thus is easily accessible from the city. It is of course planned with the regularity of a military camp, but one soon becomes accustomed to it. There are no regulationsg we come and go as we please. There are three main attractions on the campus. The meal queue, the rnail queue and the gymnasium. In the gym you can do anything from playing basketball, to "shooting" a game of pool, even drinking a soda at the fountain. During the respective seasons we play the same sports that are played at McGill. Bishop's is in our football league. When we played them I was very pleased to see Pilgrim. Nelles, Boutin, Birchwood, Nelles and Lee. In spite of all this power from Ashbury they were unable to overcome the great Dawson team, and were taken into camp twice. While on the subject of sports there is something in that line which should definitely not go unmentioned. In spite of the hard- ships at Dawson, she has something which every school and college cherishes more than anything else. She has in her teams and espe- 1-ially I noticed it when I played football. the highest spirit and THE ASI-IBURIAN 55 drive that I have ever seen. Indeed she is noted around Montreal for her fighting spirit. and more than one critic has mentioned it in his columns. To those of you who are conteniplatng coming to McGill, 1 say that it's well worth it, in spite of the thoughts of Belsen. I must say that I have thoroughly enjoyed my first term here. With every good wish that your new issue will he a success. Yours truly. JOHN F. SMITH. Dawson College, St. Johns. Que. Nov. 19, 1946. . 56 THE ASHBURIAN THE SCIENCE CLUB T HE first meeting of the Science Club took place on December lst, 1946 in the Lecture Room. Mr. Sibley acted as Chairman for the meeting. Robin McNeil gave the opening talk on "The Life and Work of John Dalton," stressing his early researches, and telling many interesting anecdotes. He compared Dalton's Atomic Weights with those of Berzelius, and those of to-day, as well as sketching many of Daltonfs Symbols. Donald Robertson then demonstrated the decomposition of ammonium dichromate by heat. This was done in a darkened room and made a brilliant showing. Next Allan Holmes gave a talk on "Jet Propulsion," emphasiz- ing the simple principles involved, and sketching the developmem of jet propelled engines on the blackboard. This proved very inter- esting. and after a period of questions by those present, the talk was concluded. Donald Robertson then demonstrated the distillation of water, as well as performing many test tube experiments with many chemi- cal solutions. Following this John MacCordick gave a short talk on recent developments in Photographing the Sun, the Color of Water, and Penicillin Developments. These were based on the Science page of "Time" Magazine. Robertson then concluded his demonstrations by preparing phos- phine by the use of yellow phosphorus and sodium hydroxide. This proved to be a fascinating experiment with the phosphine burning as soon as it was released from the water. and white rings of phos- phorus pentoxide rising from the surface. Mr. Sibley then spoke briefly about plans for the coming sea- son which concluded the meeting. The Science Club Committee is made up of: A. Holmes. D. Mercer, D. Fowler. R. McNeil. J. McCordick. D. Robertson: with D. Gardner and C Hampson acting as reporters. THE ASHBURIAN 57 LITERARY SECTICN THE FOOTBALL TRIP We went on only one football trip this year. by bus down to B.C.S. The Headmaster decided to use a bus this year and we all agreed-until the third one broke down. About thirty of us went on the big trip. The day we were to leave, food was prepared for us and food controllers were appointed. For the benefit of those who do not know what a food controller is I will explain: it is a person who sits in the back of the bus and eats the food, while yelling every so often, "five minutes until we eat," and with whom everyone tries to be on the best of terms. We bounced over the highways for about forty miles, eating sandwiches and cookies and spilling milk over everything and every- one. Then bus number one broke down. Clt is called number one for the sake of clarity later onj. We piled everything out of the bus and invaded a small store where the Ajuke box and pinball machine business thrived, and there waited for another bus. Bus number two took us right into Montreal, with cheers from the Montreal boys as we first sighted the "beautiful" west end of that city. All of us iilled up on sundaes and sodas in the bus ter- minal, then started out on the last half of our journey to North Hatley, where we were to spend the night. The second big tragedy occurred when bus number two broke down on a side street. in Montreal. We dumped our dunnage and bags on the sidewalk and stood over them in the dark for three- quarters of an hour. But a new bus came up and we climbed aboard still cursing the former bus. the bus company and even the president of the company. Even the most pessimistic among us could not expect a brand new bus to break down-But it did! On turning on to the bridge that was to take us off the accursed island of Montreal, the axle on the new bus broke and we were forced to wait for a repair man for nearly an hour and a half. We spent most of time putting on a show outside a little F renchman's store. who later declared he had never before sold so many hotdogs and hamburgers in one day. "Xever has so much been consumed by so few, in so short a timef, C Adapted for mealtime from Churchill's wartime versionj. 58 THE ASHBURIAN When the bus was fixed we had an uneventful if rather speedy trip the rest of the way and arrived at our hotel at twelve o'clock. We expected to be completely free from any bad luck for years to come. The next morning after a pleasant if somewhat noisy night, we had breakfast, looked over the hotel awhile and then left on the bus for B.C.S. Bad luck was right behind us, however, when we lost the game to B.C.S. on a field ankle deep in mud, by the score of 10-5. We had lunch at Bishop's and left for home soon after. Bad luck left us then and we had an uneventful and tiring trip home, stopping several times to stretch our legs and buying all we could eat. Thus the Ashbury football team went down to B.C.S. and returned home tired and beaten, cutting a wide path and leaving behind sold out restaurants and disappointed girls. -R. K. Paterson. PASSING PICTURE ln this literary attempt I will t-ry to give a description of a typical French Canadian village to our South American visitors and those unfortunates who have not had the opportunity to visit one of these very picturesque towns nestled quietly away in the heart of the Laurentian mountains. Our train has left the crowded metropolis of Montreal and is now thundering over the rails toward our destination, that very quiet and peaceful village, St. Marguerite.. As we gaze out of the window we see in the distance the picturesque little farm houses, the rolling hills, the grazing cattle which appear as little brown and white specks on a sea of green, also the thickly wooded mountains against the background of an early morning summer sky. and little tufts of white clouds that seem to float as puffs of smoke add their beauty to the panorama that is unfolding before us. At last our train squeaked and shuddered to a stop at the small station of St. Marguerite which is five miles from the village proper. The taxi drivers run to the steps of the train eager to take your lug- gage and drive here or there. or wherever you want to go. One is immediately aware of the contrast in colour that these people create with their check or plaid shirts or their brown suits and bright ties or neckerchiefs. THE ASHBURIAN 59 We are now accosted by a driver in bright shirt who offers to drive us into the village. We agree, and before we can utter the word "ouch," we are bouncing along what I would not hesitate for one moment to say was one of the worst roads ever travelled by man. About a mile outside the village we passed the cemetery which was on a sloping piece of land that faced the road. At last we drove up to the door of the "Chartier Hotel," a very quiet and peaceful looking building. At the small registering desk we were greeted with great enthusiasm and shown to our rooms. These were very neat and clean, although the simple furniture was rather antique. Nevertheless it all went to build up a restful atmosphere. Tired and hot from my journey I threw myself down on my bed and quickly departed for the land of "Winken,'l Blinken" and "Nod" Suddenly I was awakened by the queer tinkling of a high pitched bell, which meant supper was now being served. I got up, washed, dressed and went into the quaint little dining room where I rejoined my travelling companion. The meal was excellent and very refreshing. After .our meal we went for a walk to watch the sunset over beautiful "Las Massonf' The gilded hue on the leaves of the trees and the golden shimmer on the mirror-like water broken only by ripples of a jumping trout was a serene and pacifying sight. We then returned to the hotel where an elderly gentleman sitting in the lobby was playing a violin and singing in a rich voice songs from "Old French Folk Lore." We then discussed the beauty and charm of ths small town and after a few more tunes my compan- ion and I turned in for the night. In the morning at 9:30 with the sun shining in the win- dow, we breakfasted on orange juice, ham and eggs, toast, marmalade and coffee, a sumptuous meal, enough to satisfy even my gross appetite. We then walked to the village store where many bright articles were on display, along with all types of souvenirs. Sitting in a corner on an apple barrel was the village priest enjoying a pipe and a chat with the proprietor. I am genuinely sorry that my visit was over at 5:00 p.m. but we managed to see more of what the village had to offer. Its beautiful church, the old blacksmith shop. the stables. small stores. schoolhouse and most important of all the immaculate little homes these people lived in. They were humble dwellings. but their orange painted 50 THE ASHBURIAN walls and floors brightened their interior. Every bit of metal sparkled, every article was clean and dustless. Back in the city I look back on the congenial atmosphere of my trip and turn it over in my mind as-a passing picture. -Gordon Fischel. The Robin returning in the spring, Looks for his mate and he gives her a ring. He asks her politely, "Where shall we nest?" But she only says "Where I think best." Said hc. "QI likej the hole in the cherry tree." Says she, "Don't you ever think of me? I can't stand the noise of the other birds," She said, with very angry words. "Although the cherries are good to eat, That's where the other birds will meet." So he sadly said, "I can never win, And it seems to me it's a deadly sin." -Bow. 1 CAMPING Some people say that camping is an overrated form of enjoy- ment. It can be a very enjoyable time provided you have good companions who are also good sports. Here is the story of three boys, John Nesbitt, Pug Paterson and myself who went on a camp- ing trip. The three of us decided to leave the city during the hottest month of the summer and we chose a little place called Norway Bay. This Bay s about fifty-two miles north of Ottawa. After weeks of preparation which was quite unnecessary we oiled the the bikes and set off. Pug's parents were to follow us up later by car, with our food, blankets. and all our other equipment. On arriving after four and a half hours of steady pedalling in a hot sun. we went for a swim. The water was very warm THE ASHBURIAN 61 and delightful after all that bicycling. Puggy's parents arrived with car packed like a moving truck with an assortment of weird looking articles. The tent-raising presented quite a difficult task for us but we got it secured within three-quarters of an hour. The parents left us after bidding us a sad farewell. But anyway we were off for two weeks of good fun. We all went to bed early on the first night which started our battle with the mosquitoes. They bombed us all night, until we were nearly exhausted, but not the mosquitoes. They came back in squadrons every fifteen minutes. The first five days were devoted to getting everything organized, but it only took two girls to disorganize it again. It was Pug's sister and a friend who were staying down the Bay. They even told us how to run our place. They came at meal times and made a general nuisance of themselves. One day John and I were getting lunch ready when Puggy appeared with a ghastly looking fish, blankly stating that we were going to have it for lunch. I hate fish anyway but that fish we had made me dislike it even more. After treating ourselves for ptomaine poisoning, we went to a hill-billy dance one night and what a time we had. We city slickers knew nothing about square dancing. Those old farmers get awfully cross if you do not do the right thing. Thunderstorms were always unwelcome when we were camping. It meant that the three of us would have to stay to protect the tent from leaking. The only thing to do was to play cards or read. We were fortunate to have only four storms to worry us. The days at the Bay soon wore away and we began to prepare for the trip home. We woke upon our day of departure in hope of a sunny day. No sir, a slow drizzle of rain was coming down and it showed no signs of stopping at all for the day. Taking down the tent, wrapping up clothes and trying to keep things dry at the same time was quite a business. Pug's sister and her friend made us each four sandwiches out of one loaf of bread. Big sandwiches they were, too, and what was in them nobody knowsg a good deal of sand added to their flavour. So we set off on our bikes down the Bay road. The inhabitants were glad to see us hellians leave. The trip down to Ottawa was foul and we were utterly soaked by the time we reached the halfway mark which was a little town called Luskville, where we stopped for drinks and sandwiches. The nearer we got to Ottawa the heavier the rain fell and by the time we reached Pug's house there were thundershowers coming down. Q2 THE ASHBURIAN Well we made Ottawa in four hours and seventeen minutes after having had two mad weeks at the Bay. We were glad to see good food again. Camping's the life for excitement. ' --Mich acl Roomc. A GUM CHEWING BOY A Gum Chewing Boy, And a cud chewing cow. There is a difference I will allow. What is the difference? I have it now. It's the thoughtful look, On the face of the cow. - THE CONSTITUENTS OF AN IDEAL CRUISE lt is inevitable that in expressing my conception of an ideal cruise I will meet up with many differing opinions but having sailed with several types of people. on trips of different lengths, and under varying conditions, l have had ample opportunity and experi- ence to form a definite opinion. In sailing there are certain condi- tions which must exist, an atmosphere which must prevail, and com- panions of a dehnite type. which all combine to give perfection to a holiday on the water. My experience having been confined to sailing boats under forty feet, my ideas naturally don't apply to those exceeding this length nor to power yachts. Once a sailboat exceeds forty feet. yachting on board is quite different: the craft requires paid hands, the additional space changes living conditions, and the whole way of life is considerably altered. Due to cramped conditions invariably present on a small yacht, I ani strongly against women on an overnight trip. The majority find difficulty in adapting themselves to unfamiliar conditions, and at certain uneasiness is inevitable. As a water outing is generally primarily intended as a restful holiday. obviously factors which might in any way obstruct this aim should not be considered. As our ship is now manned by the ideal crew we will discuss aspects relating more closely to the title. THE ASHBURIAN G3 Perhaps next in importance to good companionship on the out- ing is atmosphere, the desired type of which must be present if a good time is to be enjoyed. The situation is too compact for tem- pers and quarrels to be advisable. pleasantness only should have a berth. At the bottom of the companionway. but by no means of little importance. we find the necessity of a shipshape craft for ideal cruising. Tidiness both in rig and cabin is the mark of experienced yachtsmen and not, contrary to general belief. that of old women. A tidy rig not only adds immeasurably to the general sleek appearance but also assists in the smooth working of the ship under sailg to say nothing of the intermediate tasks of hoisting and taking in the canvas. A tidy interior both makes for clean living and presents the added attractions of comfort. A ship on which tidiness deteriorates into a state of confusion no longer functions as it shouldg lines sheets, halyards and lashings are indistinguishable in their heaps. cluttered cabins find no room for the crew, and a normal way of life is impossible. A sensible mixture of these three basic constituents will guar- antee a successful and ideal cruiseg bringing with it a restful, health- ful and happy holiday. -Anonymous by request. THE INEVITABLE FATE Mr. Collins knew it would be best to confess. He was an honest man and had done it only for the money. He was positive they knew about him. Yes, he decided to go. The affair had occurred the previous day. It was this way. For many years Robert Collins had been planning to murder his wife Elizabeth. On her death he would acquire, as beneficiary of her life insurance policy, a good fortune. All that had remained for him to do was to invent the perfect murder. He at last had settled upon a way. His wife being an ardent- photographer. he had come upon her While she was taking pictures in their garden. Near her was a dry well into which he had proposed to shove her. At the moment he shoved, she wheeled about and clicked her camera. but the next moment she went headlong into the well. All was perfect except the camera part. He was unable to find the camera anywhere near 64 THE ASHBURIAN or inside the well. Having ended the search and feeling confident it could not be found he notified the police. Mr. Collins explained that his wife had accidentally fallen into the well. "What were the circumstances? asked the police officer. "Oh!" replied Mr. Collins, "my wife was taking pictures in our garden and must have had her back to the well, and when backing up fell in. I was in the house at the time." Suddenly remembering he had let slip about the camera, he explained that he had been unable to find the camera. The police officer realized this to be peculiar and ordered his men to look for the camera while they were bringing the body out of the well. The camera was discovered lying under the body next to the rock on which she had hit her head. The camera was slightly crushed. The police took the camera and body with them. Mr. Collins now became worried over the click and decided to confess the next day. The next day at the police station he confessed. The police were dumbfounded. , Then Mr. Collins asked if they had developed the film. "Yes," they replied, "but there were only pictures of the garden." -J . S. Nesbitt. A WOODLAND SCENE It was late in September, and as I wandered through the Woods, I took in the extreme beauty of the scenes I saw before me. The leaves on the trees were coloured a brilliant red, while the ones on the ground were a bright yellow. The wild flowers and the grass were slowly turning a pale brown and were gradually with- ering up. As I proceeded slowly along the narrow trail, I noticed a tiny chipmunk busily engaged in taking in his last supply of acorns before the snow covered the ground in a thick white blanket. He ran to and fro between an old oak tree and a pine stump under which he had built his snug warm home. his cheeks bulging with nuts. THE ASHBURIAN 65 I wandered on until I came to the grassy banks of a narrow twisting river, with birch and spruce trees along the shore, which gave a colourful reflection in the still water. On the far shore stood a young buck drinking deep draughts of the cool clear water. At my sudden appearance it turned and quickly bounded into the thick green woods. I followed the river down until a faint roaring sound disturbed the quiet of the peaceful woods. As I drew nearer the noise increased until suddenly a high waterfall appeared before my eyes. The lazy water speeded up as it drew near the falls, and then slid quietly over to create a tremendous roar as it hurtled foaming and frothing into a deep pool at the bottom. From this pool the river continued in its lazy manner along its winding course. By this time the sun was beginning to sink behind the distant hills, so turning down the narrow trail by which I had come, l headed slowly for home. As I reached the peak of a grassy hill I looked out over the beautiful woods, contented with the day just passed. I was startled by the shrill cry of an owl some distance off and it reminded me that night was drawing near, so I turned slowly home. the beautiful scenes I had seen passing slowly through my mind. -Heney I. DOWN TO A SUNLESS SEA A few more weary, stumbling paces and they were on the top of the hill, on the skyline, and there, afar off, was their goal, the sea. One of the men blasphemed as a loose stone caused him to stumble, but the others just sat and stared and thought. "Thirty miles," said the navigator and laughed. Thirty miles, would they ever make it? Their thoughts went back to the events of the past few hours- cruel, harrowing hours in the intolerable heat of the Papuan jungle. They had been lucky, extraordinarily lucky. Not many people survive a crash such as they had endured. The two most popular men of the crew had even less chance than them-they had not survived. Jeff had joked as he vainly tried to hold the plane in the air, he was always joking in his own inimitable fashion. He would laugh no more. nor would the butt of so many of his jokes. his co-pilot and best friend Jack. They would no longer know any- thing, save the dark earth of the jungle. It had only been a few hours ago-it seemed like as many years. 55 THE ASHBURIAN Their thoughts switched almost at the same time from the past to the future. Thirty miles, the navigator had said. No food, and worse, no water. Their last water, a few miserable drops, had gone in trying to revive Jack. Thirty miles of dense, almost impenetrable jungle, and the unbearable dampness of the air. To flying men it was all the worse. less than six minutes by aircraft, and at least that many days by foot. Their desire for water was already intense, they had to have some. There was probably none for miles but there was no point in wasting any more time in rest. They looked at their leader. For a moment the sun was hidden behind a merciful bank of clouds. "Let's get going," said the navigator. They rose unsteadily to their feet and started down the hill, down to a sunless sea. --John Pettigrew. i IT HAPPENED IN I999 By Alan M. C. Holmes Thornton was watching the pale blue smoke curl out of his old briar. It seemed to climb carelessly without effort, but yet it was quite determined. climbing stealthily upward to form a massive cloud at the ceiling. "Let's go for a drive, dear," said his wife, bored by the silent Sunday. Thornton pushed a button on his arm chair and the whole chair ltechnically called momentic horizontal acceleratorj glided gently into the "pluto-car," Thornton wondered how Daniel Boor had ever thought of it. Once in the 'fpluto-car" he pressed one of those buttons special- ly designed to amuse youg the car backed out smoothly, it was one of those new chryslomic fluotomic drives. Thornton didn't careg it got him places at the cost of three milicents per hectokilometer. "We had better stop at one of those positron stations, we haven't checked the thermic capacity of our pile since 1970.'l said Thorn- ton t it was now. according to the gravimetric calendar: 19991 The ear fit replaced the private plane in 1961 when air congestion be- came too greatl stopped automatically at a station bearing the radioneoactivated sign: "Texaranium Exothermic Pile Tester dz Charger." Thornton pushed his arm through the pane and dropped 69 milicients into the circular slot. tall this made possible by the 4th dimensional relativitybg two round metal rods Cprobably made of inolybdenump protruded and entered the square apertures in the side of the car, fiouic transniutation soon fixed thatlj THE ASHBURIAN 67 The osmoticifyer soon registered a depechon. so 13 more 1nili- cents trequested by radio-thermal telepathyl were deposited and the car was filled with mesotronic fuel. Once again the pluto-car glided away: they were now moving at a super-sonic speed of the 3rd powerg Thornton turned his speed down to sixty decameters per decidayg as he approached Reno he shut off the power and glided down the trans-sonic highway into a triumscribed car park. From there they boarded the horizontal escalator and slowly viewed the polaroidal shop windows: they disembarked in front of the telopositronic theater. For one deciday they watched the third dimensional projections. They saw 'tKilroy's Last Scribblef' starring Tommy Dorsalfin and his logarythmic band. Ronald Coldcream and Jane Bussell. Nine minutes later they were again in their pluto-car. this time taking the intra-sonic highway home. They passed over 'iPestronic Gorge" t by means of a temporary helium bridgejg there had been a mistake in the exploding of a Hpesotronic bomb." fthe atomic bomb was short lived in 1957 being followed by the mesotromic bomb and they were now entering the pesotromic agej. It had engulfed two whole states. It- was now 79 milidays before sunset and they were 11 hech- kilometers from homeg Thornton gave one last 'fboost" and turned off the power g they glided smoothly into their garage 3 milady's later Cachieved by the machine's homing pigeon instincts. invented in 1950 by Openshinerj. On their return home Tin-Teena t their mechanical serv.-anti had arranged a cold meal with the remnants of their K-9 meal they had had at lunchg after supper. Thornton, exhausted by the high speed travel, said goodnight to his wife, went downstairs to his room and removed his protective lead-spun clothes. This was possible because in 1953 the earth's gravity had been reduced to half its previous strengthg about half the earth's core had been thrown into space, and both the Arctic and Antarctic Ice had also been dis- simulated in the same way by means of atomic-power: the regions now being fertile land having as their capital "Atlantis" Thornton wearily climbed into his electro-boyant bed. Cyou actually floated in air. you touched nothing-achieved by similar charges repelling each otherj and "rolled over" to turn his tele- symphonic receiver on. and he heard the following program: "Lead-Foam" the new "lead undy" soap now brings you the news. C lengthy commercials had been banned since the "Plugger" revolution and Reform Bill II in 19615. 68 THE ASHBURIAN Today we hear from our Moon correspondent, that a shower of meteorites has completely destroyed Lunascow f the Russian col- onyj. On the home front: the Antarcticans have rejected a Pluto- tronic Bomb Billg Washington: the US. has proposed a new con- trol bill for the use of pepotronic piles g Atlantis: Proffesor Coon- skin reports that one of his super-luxic pesotrons has escaped from his solartron. he added that this new sub positronic particle pen- etrates lead and that its entrance into the human body bauses in- staneous deathg by this time, he continues, the pesotron may have circled the world several times harmlessly, but that it is expected to cause considerable damage before it is brought ....... " At this moment Thornton felt an excruciating pain in his chest, he writhed for a fraction of a miliday and slowly came back to his sense. back to the good old 1946, back to the age of sanity. Then he smelt the smell of burning cottong there was his pipe burning a hole through his shirt. THE END. NB.-This Is Fictional.

We should like to draw your attention to a few points in con- nection with our unrivalled record of fuel oil service. 1. We were the FIRST company to make Metered deliveries of fuel oil in Ottawa. 2. All our tank trucks are equipped with the latest type Neptune red seal Goverment-tested and Govern- ment-sealed meter with automatic printing register which automatic- ally records, on the delivery ticket, the gallonage delivered. 3. We INTRODUCED to the Can- ital, over eighteen years ago, fuel oil trucks with hose-reel equip- ment with shut-off valve at the discharge end of hose, enabling de- liveries of fuel oil to be made with- out spilling a drop. 4, We were the FIRST company in Ottawa to have tank trucks equip- pump, which combined ped with with hose-reel equipment, permits deliveries of oil to be made from the street, obviating the neccesity of tank truck being driven into laneway, and making it possible to deilver oil even when the fill pipe is located at a point considerably higher than the street level. 5. For years it has been our prac- tice to supply and install, free of charge, a Ventalarm,-a whistling signal, on the customer's vent pipe making it unnecessary for the driver to enter the basement and also eliminating any possibility of overflowing the customer's oil storage tank. 6. The Heney Company is the lar- gest distributor of furnace oil in Eastern Ontario. We have a fleet of seven tank trucks used exclus- ively for the delivery of fuel oil. 7. All our oil route men are of high calibre and have had years of ex- perience. 8. We operate on the automatic de- gree day delivery system but in case of emergency a delivery of oil can be made any hour of the day or night. 9, There is, in Ottawa. fuel oil storage with a capacity of over "two million gallons" for the protection of "our" customers.
