BRINE Editor A. AIACRAE Assistant Editors R. A'i.ACNEIL D. H.ALL THE ASHBURIAN 9 EDITCRIAL Hr: year 1948-'49 has been, up to the time of writing, a pleasant and a profitable one. Its general harmony was, however, marred bv a note of gloom, struck during the Easter Holidays when Ashbury suffered a severe loss in the death of the Chairman of the Board of Governors, Colonel Edmund F. Newcombe, K.C., to whose memory this issue is respectfully and affectionately dedicated. Colonel Newcombe, son of the late Edmund L. Newcombe, former judge of the Supreme Court of Canada, was an Old Boy of Ashbury, a graduate of McGill University and for many years, a barrister of this city. Since his retirement from the army, where he served with distinction in the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light ln- fantry during the First Great Vvar, his activities have been prominent and varied in professional, charitable and social spheres. Nevertheless, since his appointment as Chairman of the Board of Governors, his bril- liant mind, his energies, his sound knowledge and unfailing judgment were ever at the disposal of the school, and from the hour of his appointment to the date of his tragic and untimely death his helpful, active interest in Ashbury was never known to flag. All of us present at Ashbury, as well as many others who have gone before, will long remember Colonel Newcombe-not only for his official participation in school ceremonies, but for those innumerable occasions when he was to be seen in any weather on the side lines of school sports. It gives us a glow of pleasure and of gratitude to know that his interest in us went far beyond the ofhcial interest of a Chairman of the board, it was the interest of an Old Ashburian and of a warm and devoted friend. 10 THE ASHBURIAN SCHGOL NGTES HE School opened on September 14, 1948, with a goodly number of hopeful New Boys and equally hopeful Old Boys. Besides the new boys we also welcomed to the School three new members of the teaching staff, Mr. XV. A. Edge, Mr. G. C. l l Memorial Dining Hall and with excel- lent music and refreshments the events were highlights in their respective terms. On All HalloW's Eve the School was given a rare treat in one of Mr. Oliver's all too infrequent ventrilo- quism acts. Movies, too, were shown, refreshments served, and a thoroughly enjoyable evening was had by all.. Many thanks are due those who planned and ran the event. The first Monday evening of the first term was football night. Although Drayton, and Lieutenant G. XV. Higgs Evzteiftaimlzevlt Several very enjoyable House Dances were held during the year. As usual, they were held in the DOI a new institution in the School, that evening's entertainment was con- ducted along the HIOSI novel lines. lt started with a free-for-all question period in which the School's football enthusiasts, past, present and future literally swamped Don Loney, centre for Ottawa Rough Riders, with 'foot- ball'. This period was followed by a coloured movie of two recent Rough Rider games to which Don supplied a most instructive running commen- tary. Then, and this is the most in- THE .-ISHBURI.-IN ll triguing part, we were 'on the air', as CFRA's weekly Quarterback Club. Here several more Ottawa football stars were questioned over the air in the manner followed by that weekly broadcast. The guests were, Tommy Shields, Ace Powell and john XYaggoner, and I am sure that the proximity of these 'gods' added much to an already well planned and enjoyable evening. On December 3rd and Nlay znd the Staff were hosts at two Par- ents' Receptions. During these two evenings, both attended by Their Excellencies, the Viscount and Lady Alexander, and many other parents, parents and staff alike spent several enjoyable hours discussing their common interest-the boys. Again, every Saturday night throughout the year we have had a full program of movies. All kinds of films were shown to satisfy the various interests of the boys. XVe have had musicals, such as 'The Bells of St. Marys, mysteries like 'And Then There Were None', adventure films such as 'The Sullivans', and comedies like 'Holy Nlatrimony'. It would take far too much space to list all the movies, but we are sure that everyone who attended enjoyed them, and that they constituted a welcome diversion. Our grateful thanks to Mr. Sibley and his staff, consisting of Ross Kerr as chief projectionist, and Grimsdale as his assistant, who gave up their time on Saturday evenings in order that we should enjoy ourselves. TV e think it fitting to record here the many visits we have had this year from Old Boys. A few of the visitors were: Howie Clark, Ritz Fair, Timmie Kenny, john Pettigrew, john Hooper, john Smith, Doug. Hall, Mike Room, Dave Mercer, Don MacDonald, Don Gardner, Gordie Fischel, Frank Rose, Chris Hampson, and many others who played in Old Boys' matches. The Reverend and Mrs. T. C. B. Boon, of St. Marys Vicarage, jasper, Alberta, send cordial greet- A Ajjggg g ings to their many Ashburian friends from whom they received Christmas messages. They would much appre- ciate it if, in future, anyone who is kind enough to remember them at the festal season would put his ad- dress on his card, so that it may be personally acknowledged. Dietetics It is customary in these notes to make some reference to the quality of the School's food during the past it year. We can only say here that this year words cannot express our thanks to Miss Burroughs for a good job 'well done'. fNo pun intendedil. 12 THE ASHBURIAN Health Vie feel also that an even greater vote of thanks than usual should go to Miss MacLaughlin and Miss Redmond for what has been a year unrivalled in the excellence of the health of the School. I Other Activities On October 7th many of the more politically minded of the seniors attended the Pro- gressive Conservative Conven- tion. ln the too short hours witnessing the election of Mr. George Drew as leader of the Party in Canada, those who ' attended learned much of the procedure of such nationally important events. On May zoth, as a follow up to the annual Cadet Corps inspection, a picked contin- gent from the School paraded, by invitation, with the Gov- ernor-General's Foot Guards in a ceremonial dress parade through Ottawa. The cadets, led by Cadet Captain R. MacNeil with several senior N.C.O.'s marched with a pre- cision of which the School may well be proud. Clubs This year the usual school clubs functioned with customary popularity. Good attendance was in evidence at all meetings, and we are sure that bv now a sound basis has been laid for the clubs of future years. i The Debating Society held two meetings of note, the first of which occurred in the Assembly Hall on November 19th. lX'lacRae, Scott ll, Fraser and Gardner debated the point resolved: that pictures are a better medium of education than is the written word. The motion was defeated. At the second meeting the topic for discussion was: should formal examinations be abolished. The motion was carried. ln all, some good speeches were made and some excellent debating talent uncovered for future years. The Science Club, under Mr. Sibley's guidance, had many success- ful gatherings the reports on which will be found elsewhere in this magazine. THE ASHBURIAN 13 The Cercle Francais, though handicapped by lack of time, was successful in its one meeting. This took the form of a visit to the Little Theatre to see two French plays competing in the Festival Dramatique Francais. The plays were, 'National 6', and 'Les lrasciblesf Both were excellently presented and the evening made quite a novel experience in the history of the Cercle Francais. The Riding Club operated every Saturday morning throughout the year, and much improvement was noticeable in the riding of the beginners and old hands alike. Two cups were entered for competition, and both were won by the Scott brothers. Much praise is due to Colonel Brine and all others connected with the running of this valuable and enjoyable project. And so ends this record. It is a record, not of the highlights of the school year, but of those things which, if forgotten, would leave many a name unmentioned, many a deed unsung. In conclusion, we wish God's speed to Mr. Edge, Xliss Thoms and Miss Redmond in any walk of life into which their journeys from Ashbury may take them. It is sad to see them go, but they can be assured that the School will not forget their contribution to the success of the year, and that there will ever be a place for them in the hearts of Ashburians. Thus we end a prosperous year, a gainful year, a happy year, but more important still-another year. R. XlacN. 14 THE ASHBURIAN CHAPEL NOTES HE first Sunday service of this school year was Matins on September 19th. Our Chaplain read the service and the "Head" spoke to us of Christ's life, showing that it was a fact of history and neither legend nor fraud. On October 3rd, our Hrst communion celebration, we were ad- dressed by Mr. Brain. He spoke of the importance of the communion service in our lives, how it made us aware of our sins, of the need of repentance and the efficacy of the sacrament itself. We were pleased to welcome the Reverend Canon G. P. XYooll- combe, the founder of our school, to the chapel on the zznd Sunday after Trinity, October 24. He spoke to us on the parable of the Talents. A memorable part of his address was, "Either you approach nearer to the Lord, or you will drift farther and farther away, there is no stand- ing still." The next Sunday Mr. D. S. Penton, Headmaster of Lower Canada College, spoke to the school. He suggested we live our lives with a goal ahead of us of improving the world, not of making as much money as possible. On November 28, the First Sunday in Advent, our Chaplain went out to All Saints' Church in XYestboro, while their rector, the Reverend XY. D. Nl. Christie came here. In an excellent address Mr. Christie told us of the need for discipline in all branches of life and especially in the church. The last Sunday morning service of the Michaelmas term was December 12. The llead reminded us that we should spend Christmas as a lloly Day. not as a holiday Qcommercial carnivalj, as is generally accepted today. That Sunday evening over one hundred and fifty THE ASHBURIAN 15 candles lit the chapel for a beautiful carol service. The carols sung all originated in different countries as our chaplain explained to us. XYc were pleased to have so many visitors, who all said they enjoyed the service immensely. On january 23, Canon Bertal lleeney was the preacher. l le told us of the value of prayers in general and of the Prayer Book in particular. Mr. Belcher told us of the literary value of the bible and the craftsmanship of its translators. He talked to us on january go. On February zo the school paid its annual visit to Christ Church Cathedral. The service as always was most impressive as was the Deanla sermon on sneermg. Un March I3 the school was addressed by Major the Reverend james Barnett. Major Barnett is the Command Chaplain for the Klon- treal area. He served with the Royal Rifles of Quebec and was a prisoner of war for four years in Hong Kong. It was on his experiences in captivity that he addressed us, and how he spent a post-war Christmas in japan at the time of the YVar Trials. He left no doubt in our minds as to the power of Christianity in the lives of some japanese, telling us of one who had repeatedly risked his life to bring some comfort to the prisoners of war. Cn Good Friday we said Matins at ten o'clock. The chapel was stripped of ornaments and the immovable brass was draped. It looked very impressive. This was one of the few Good Fridays when the school has been in session. Easter Sunday was celebrated with an early morning Communion Service, and with Matins at eleven. There were several visitors present for these services. The chapel was bedecked with glistening brass and colourful flowers to end the Lenten season. Throughout this season we had been frequently addressed by the chaplain in short weekday talks on the signiHcance and importance of that part of the Christian year. On the 24th April Colonel Brine's annual address told us of the value of Christianity to the boys. Uur last guest speaker was Mr. D. R. Thomas, former bursar and loyal friend of the school. He gave us a scholarly talk on education and the importance of making the most of our opportunities. Our first weekday services were in connection with Remembrance Day. On Tuesday, November 2, Mr. B. :Xlexandor gave us a short talk on the significance of Poppy Day. On the irth, at our Remembrance Day' service, the late chairman of the Board of Governors and Nlr. C. Gale read the lessons, Canon XYoollcombe took a part of the service and Mr. Glass read the Roll of Honour. The following Sunday Mr. Belford told us about the ideals for which the soldiers of the last two wars died. 16 THE ASI-IBURIAN On Thursday, February 24, St. Matthias Day, was the annual Confirmation service, conducted as usual by the Lord Bishop of Dttawa. Assisting him were the Reverend A. T. Carson, Rector of St. Bartholo- mew's, the Reverend A. Anderson, Diocesan Secretary, and Canon Wfoollcombe. The Chaplain presented the following boys for confirma- tion: Philip Foulkes, Richard Busk, Richard Kemp, Hugh MacNeil, Lewis Abbott, David Livingston, Michael Mann, Gerald Ross, Laurie Hart, and Peter Gilman. As usual the Leaving Service, attended by the Senior boys and their parents preceded the prize giving ceremonies outside. The year has been a good one for the chapel. XVe have had thirty- two Sunday morning services, and an equal number of evening ones, as well as prayers twice daily. There have been nine services of Holy Communion at which there have been a total of two hundred and seventeen communicants. For sixteen of our Sunday morning services we have had the most welcome company of Elmwood, our sister school. The Reverend XV. Belford provided a most educational and interesting set of services, coloured by Mr. L. H. Sibley, our organist and his choir. Assisting them as chapel clerks were Donald Lyon, Peter Hargreaves, and Donald Hall. D. Hall. th is an FIRST FIELD RUGBY HIS season was a much better one for Ashbury than we have seen for the past few years. First Bishops Game On October 2 Ashbury played host to Bishop's College in ideal football weather. Ashbury got off to a rather shaky startg Bishops scored several long ground gains which resulted in three rouges and three points. The Bishops squad had things their own way throughout the first quarter and early part of the second in which they scored an unconverted touchdown. At the ten minute mark of the second quarter Henry Dreyfus gathered in a Bishops pass and ran over for a maiorg the oflicials, however, ruled taat he stepped out at the forty yard marker and the play was recalled. Two short. Pritchard to Dreyfus. passes advanced the ball to the Bishops 8 yard stripe where Bob Darby carried the oval. and several Bishops players. ovcr for our first touch- down. The convert was unsuccessful. A Bishops fumble and several good ground plays paved the way for our second touchdown when l A 7ffi.

THE ASHBURIAN 19 Darby again plunged over. Pritchard converted. ljarly in the fourth quarter Andy Pritchard on an attempted plunge found no hole so lugged the pikskin around the end for a forty-five yard gain and a major score to complete our scoring. The boys from Lennoxville gave their all in the final minutes to try and whittle down the Ashbury lead but were unable to dent the red front wall. Final score-Ashbury 17, Bishops 8. Second Bishops Game Twenty days later a jubilant Ashbury team left for Lennoxville in high hopes of repeating their victory. Things seemed to go badly for Ashbury right from the starting whistle. Our offensive lacked punch and our defence left a great deal to be desired. Bishops had things pretty much their own way in the first half. Early in the first quarter they plunged over for a major score, which they converted. Ashbury hopes were raised a few minutes before half time when Gillis Ross, quarterback, accepted a long pass from Andy Pritchard and galloped 35 yards unmolested for our only major score. From there on, however, Ashbury never got going again and the home team racked up a touch- down and a field goal to win the game 1.1 to 5. In the home and home series each team scored zz points, which enabled Bishops to hang onto the "Old Boys Cup" for another season. Lower Cnvmda College Game L.C.C. visited us on Saturday, Gctober 30th, for our final game of the season. Many about the school were doubtful as to the outcome because the Montreal team were reported to be superior to ours and Bishops. In th Hrst quarter a series of plunges and passes advanced our boys to the L.C.C. 30 yard line. Pritchard kicked and their back was tackled for a rouge, giving us a lead of one point. On a sleeper play Ross made our first touchdown. The convert was blocked, leaving the score at 6 to o. In spite of superior playing by Ashbury L.C.C. pushed over a major score in the second quarter to tie the score 6-6. Un another sleeper play Ross galloped down the field for a fifty yard gain. The stage was set for a touchdown by Ross on a quarterback sneak after Darby made fourteen on a plunge over right middle. Towards the end of the quarter L.C.C. pushed us back to our one yard line where our lads held off three assaults to take the ball on downs. A few minutes later, Price, our captain, intercepted a desperation pass for a 76 yard gain. In the last quarter L.C.C. made a series of passes and plunges culminating in an end run from our fifteen yard stripe to bring their score to 11. The final score II-I 1. M F, A f-I FB i rl!

FN 22 THE ASI-IBURIAN SFCDND RUGBY FIELD TEAM N their several games this year the Second Field Team proved un- availing in their efforts to produce a win and ended the season with nothing more gratifying to show than some promising material for next year's rugby. Their first opponents-Lindenlea Rockets, proved more than ade- quate opposition on several occasions, but the experience gained and the spirit inspired in these amicable matches was, to say the least, auspicious. The first Ashbury-Rocket match was interesting, exciting and bloodless. Foulkes, the Ashbury captain, proved a most effective kicker, and MacLaren's run-backs were very successful. Unfortunately, for Ashbury, Renne, the Rocketls captain, was brilliant in his perform- ance. His line plunges, end-runs and tackles were spectacular and the result was a 7-6 victory for Lindenlea. A return watch was arranged for the following week and in this engagement Renne was once more the deciding factor. Although Ashbury were in scoring positions on numerous occasions they failed to carry the ball over the goal line, and the Rockets won by the score of io-o. Vlfharton and Cullwick, both of Ashbury, played well, with the former making sensational tackles and the latter catching many long forward passes. AGAINST B1sHoP7s ISH0P7S rapidly moving backheld and ponderous line soon proved too much for the light Ashbury team. The latter showed excellent team spirit throughout the match, but their line failed to halt the steady l3ishop's onslaught. The match came to an end with a 32-o victory for Bishops Foulkes, MacLaren and Cullwick were outstanding for Ashbury. JUNIOR SCHODL RUGBY Hr: third Held had a fairly successful season and showed excellent spirit at all times. We managed to overcome our friends of Sed- bergh School on two occasions in home and home games and we generally gave a good account of ourselves against a mixed assortment of local teams. David Scott was elected Captain by the team and proved himself an enthusiastic and hard-working leader. Finlay ll for his pass throwing, Dillon for his running and Ned Rhodes for his remarkable kicking of converts deserve special mention. It is only to be hoped that as large as possible a number of these boys of the 194.8 3rd Rugby Field may be allowed and care to keep together through their school days at Ashbury-here is the making of a fine team. No mention of junior School football, hockey or cricket would be complete without mention of Mrs. Rhodes and Mrs. Scott who enthusiastically supported us at every game-we thank these ladies for their loyal support. BGB. THE ASHBURIAN SGCCER ASHBURY vs. SEDBERGH N A cool and pleasant Thursday, October 7th, Ashbury Soccer Xl played hosts to Sedbergh on our first football lield. Both teams were obviously somewhat lost playing on such a large piece of terrain, but perhaps Sedbergh suffered more in this respect, for although their condition was evidently better than ours, they didn't press this advan- tage to the full and only looked dangerous two or three times. Un each occasion, Heney I, Clark, or Kerr I Cor some combination thereofi partied the thrust. Pettigrew was easily the outstanding player for our opponents, but his halves worked well with him to form a constant threat to the security of our goal. For us, perhaps Gutierrez was the most useful but, due to lack of speed, was in no way the scoring menace he usually was on our small practice field. Cray, on the right wing, was nursing a weak ankle and was not able to feed our centre with his customary long passes in front of the goal from the touchline. On one occasion, Sedbergh forced their way past our defence but luckily for us in such a way as to be clearly offside. Kerr breathed again and the score remained o-o until the final whistle. The Sedbergh goalie spent a lonely afternoon but cheered up again after some cakes and cocoa in Hall. The game was chiefly notable for lost opportunities due to weak kicking with the 'wrong' foot and poor control of the ball with regard to bounce and spin, Pettigrew and Gutierrez being honourable excep- tions. That we were lucky to hold Sedbergh to a tie was quickly evident when we played the return match two weeks later in Montebello. lt was agreed at the outset to play an 8-man side as the ground was not really big enough to make a good game for II a side. This gave nearly all our players an occasional rest and they needed it for Sedbergh pressed strongly and were soon banging in goals with some regularity. Pettigrew, as usual, was the chief cause for concern, being fed plenty of scoring passes by his lieutenants. Cray again twisted his ankle, thus reducing the strength of our forward line almost to zero, he being our only strong kicker besides our fullbacks and Gutierrez. Abbott and Grimsdale played well but lacked the speed and strength necessary to force a score. Final score on this occasion was 5-o and no mistake. This disagreeable portion of the afternoon's agenda being complete. we quickly turned to pleasanter activities-consumpticin of a magni- ficent tea in the senior common room.

TI-IE ASHBURIAN HOUSE GAME HoR'i'I,Y after the rugby season had ended, clans XYoollcombc and Connaught gathered with blood in their eye for the annual comedy called a house soccer match. Anything less like soccer could scarcely be imagined but perhaps the Ancient Order of Hibernians would recognize in it some faint echo of a charwomcn's hurling match, with- out shillelaghs. To see linemen of the first football XII galumphing about in shorts with little or no idea of how to manage a spherical football is more than flesh and blood should be required to endure, but endure it annually we do. Interspersed among these behemoths, one could occisionally catch a fleeting glimpse of a first soccer Xl forward making dainty pirouettes, for all the world like a goat loose among some North American Bison. The outcome of the game fto wit, nervous exhaustion of all for- wards and halvesl was never in doubt, and the south-westerly gale of wind made proceedings if anything more absurd. After some three- quarters of an hour of ineffectual shouting, gesticulating, and surrepti- tious handling of the ball, it was centred, doubtless by accident, in front of the Connaught goal. 4fAt this point it would be only decent to draw the veil across the next few moments, but your scribe has a duty to performl. Then, rudely trampling Kerr into the grass, what seemed like 75 percent of the IYoollcombe team formed a hacking, snarling box around the ball, proceeded through the goalmouth, and emerged triumphantly halfway to the Headmaster's house, claiming a score. IYhat was undeniable was that the ball, after striking some portion of Cray's person, had passed beneath the crossbar. It must be admitted that a good deal besides had passed that way as well. The referee, a VVoollcombe man, loyally Ci.e. without a blush or a moment's hesita- tionb and magisterially pointed to centre-Held and the inglorious busi- ness proceeded to its dismal end with the score 1-o in IYoollcombe's favour. Dreyfus, I-Ieney II, Pritchard I, Gutierrez, and Hood did their best to make it a soccer game but to no avail, it remained a typical game of 'housoccer'. 26 THE ASHBURIAN TALKS BY VISITORS 4 Nha LYON N VVednesday, October 6th, Mr. Hugh Lyon, former Headmaster of Rugby School in England, was kind enough to pay a visit to Ashbury. In an informal talk with the Headmaster and the prefects, Mr. Lyon generously answered questions on the organization and routine life of Rugby. Later, in his address to the assembled school, Mr. Lyon told us something of his school. He said that Rugby was old, by our standards. It is a tendency of old schools either to become self-satisned or to become tired. Should this happen it is the duty of the newer schools to carry on the old tradition. Part of this tradition is not to place too much emphasis on the material things of life. Mr. Lyon said that later in life one could see more clearly how the material things of life are not all-sufficient, how something more is necessary, something embody- ing the higher principles of life. In conclusion Mr. Lyon said that he considered it a great privilege to be able to speak to such a school as Ashbury, and to deliver his message to those to whom he looked to carry on the old tradition. 'THE FOUNDER N Thursday, October 7th, Canon VVoollcombe, founder and first Headmaster of Ashbury, came to the school to make his annual address. In a very interesting lecture Dr. IVoollcombe told the boys the school's history, how it had been founded in 1891, and how it had moved from place to place until it had taken over the twelve acres it now possesses in Rockcliffle Park. We were told the story behind the school's name, how it had been named after an estate in England which had belonged to the VVoollcombes. Dr. VVoollcombe said that he felt that every boy in the school should know something about his school, and he addressed his remarks particularly to the new boys. In conclusion, Canon VVoollcombe wished us all a happy year, and, as is his custom, asked the Head for a half-holiday for the school. Mr. Glass complied, and amid cheers of elation, especially from the smaller boys, our founder left us for another year. A. MacR. CAPTAIN Sm R. STIRLING-I'IAB1II,'l'0N AND CAPTAIN CLIS'l'ER N 'mia afternoon of Thursday, November 15th, the school had the pleasure of hearing speak Capt. Sir Robert Stirling-Hamilton, and Capt. B. S. Custer of the Royal and United States Navies respec- tively, who told us of their adventures in the northern Canadian wilder- ness. THE ASHBURI.-IN U The speakers were introduced by Xlr. Glass. lle said that he was rather embarrassed introducing such senior officers as thev, with refer- ence to his former rank of lieutenant, and so he preferred to intro- duce them as just two loyal fathers of Ashburians. Un a more serious note, Mr. Glass said that he considered their adventure would be of great interest to us all, and proceeded to introduce Capt. Custer. Capt. Custer was to tell us how it happened that they had to land on the lake. The following is approximately the text of his speech. They left Churchill at 8.30 on the first morning of their trip. The weather was overcast, and they checked the magnetic compass as they were taking off. Though Capt. Custer was in favour of fiying close to the ground, the other pilot who was a Pacific veteran with a good deal of experience thought it would be a good idea to Hy over the clouds, especially since the meteorologist or "rain-maker" had predicted clear fiying after 40 minutes of bad weather. Unfortunately they hit snow, so that the radio became iced up, and the gyro went bad. Not realizing this, however, they continued to steer their twin-engined Beechcraft by the gyro. Now, in the forward baggage compartment, there had been loaded an iron box, and this shifted, fouling the compass. Capt. Custer later calculated that this compass had been 70D ofif. It appears that they had held their course for the first IO minutes after leaving Churchill, but that then on climbing over the clouds, their instruments had set them off, so that they kept fiying westward into the storm front. Realizing the error, they turned south, actually assum- ing their original course of 2100. They did this in hopes of reaching The Pas, because the ceiling there was better than at Churchill on account of the storm, being 6000-8000 feet at The Pas, but only 500 feet at Churchill. It turned out that they came out over Reindeer Lake. as they later identified it. Near this lake there are magnetic ore deposits. so that their compass needle spun round and round, and was of no use to them. By now they had only one hour's gas left, so they held a council to decide upon their next move. They decided to steer what they calculated to be west, and to send an SOS. They also decided to land While they still had gas and altitude, because power landings are safer than those without power. Next, the Petty Cflicer on board got rid of the door by detaching and dropping it. Then they came down on the lake fthere were two. this being the smallerj with their wheels up, Cllt the switches. and landed smoothly. They stepped out in muskeg, then surveyed their situation, and decided that instead of heading east across the muskeg to the big lake as they had originally intended, that they should go west instead to higher, firmer ground. This was a struggle of some 300 yards across the muskeg, where they sank knee-deep at each step. The first thing they did on reaching solid ground was to offer a prayer of thanks to God for their safe landing. 28 THE ASHBURIAN At this point Capt. Custer's address came to a conclusion and Capt. Stirling-Hamilton continued. His part of the story was to tell how the expedition fended for themselves while stranded. lYhen they had reached Hrm ground above the muskeg they pro- ceeded to evacuate such equipment as was in the aircraft. XYhen this was done, Capt. Custer called a conference to take stock of their provisions. They found that they had the following on hand: 16 sand- wiches, a number of tins of fruit juice, and some chocolate bars. As it iappened, there was on board a United States army sergeant with thirty years' service. He was, as he thought, going home on furlough. He had some jam, some chocolates, and some emergency tablets. In the way of ammunition they had a .zz rifle with 48 rounds, and three US. service pistols with 5o rounds. They had no axe. There were seven parachutes on hand, these they used to make tents and shelters. At this qoint it was still showering, as it had been since they landed. Accord- ingly they put their equipment under one of the parachute tents they wad rigged up. They were short of clothes, but it was on two scores principally that the party was worried. The first was their shortage of "ammo", the second was approach of cold weather. This they expected in 4 to 6 weeks and to have been caught in a merciless northern winter might have meant starvation and death for all of them. They decided to remain where they were for 5 days in hope of the appearance of a rescue 'plane, and if, at the end of that time, no help was in sight, they would make the long march to civilization. ln the meantime they set about making a better camp. The engin- eer sergeant made a shelter out of pine boughs and a parachute, but unfortunately the boughs touched the cloth, and the rain poured through. The sapper Hxed this by lifting the cloth out of contact with the boughs. .- After this they set out to look for food. The first things they found were blueberries. They also found some large toadstools, but there was immediately some doubt as to their edibility. One of the crew eventu- ally persuaded the others that a sure-fire test would be to boil the toad- stools together with a quarter. If the quarter turned black, then the fungus was poison. The quarter did not turn black, so the sponsor ate some of the toadstools, All night the others kept a wary eye on him, ready to man the stomach pump. But, by the next day the man was still well, so everyone had some. They were found to be tasteless and leathery, and the situation was made worse by a lack of salt. The .zz provided them with birds and squirrels, but the meat was only sufficient to make soup. At this point Capt. Custer went off to find the other lake which they had sighted from the air, and on his return he found a porcupine. This animal kept the Hve of them going for three days. THE ASHBURIAN ju They had agreed to wait five good Hying days for help, and then start walking. They had, however, three davs of bad weather in be- tween, so that they were in camp for a week. By then iuore food was needed, so a party was organized, and went to -the big lake in search of game. They found some spruce grouse. There were also some deer tracks, but no sign of the deer. However, they got eight or nine birds. Then the party decided to attract attention with smoke hres. Ac- cordingly they found a fine straight tree, heaped brushwood around it. and lit a fire. The flames roared up the tree and went Ullf. Though they tried this on other occasions, they met with little success. T i Un the eighth day, they started to walk out. They made packs carrying their provisions, but these proved too heavy, and had to be lightened. For the first day on the march they had the good luck to be walking through burnt out forest. On that day thev covered fifteen miles, ten of them in the right direction. All the time' they kept going south and west. The first night was spent under an improvised parachute shelter. Every night they built a large fire to keep themselves warm and the animals away. The second day they ran into fallen timber, piled four or five feet high, and this impeded them to such an extent that they were only able to progress at about one mile an hour. This lasted for two days. On the third night they found the meat was half bad. The wet and cold had spoiled it, and only two good grouse remained. The next day as they were sitting by a lake they saw a Lancaster steering north. They figured that it Hew over their aircraft, and sighted it. lYhen the Lancaster sighted the 'plane they radioed for a Hying boat. The flying boat went to the scene, and found the arrow made out of a torn parachute which the party had left behind. The pilot followed its direction, and picked up the trail from other similar arrows they had laid out. Realizing that rescue was at hand the party lit as big a fire as they could. The flying boat saw it, and dropped a message. The note was to the effect that the lake that they were by was too small to land on, and would they mind just nipping over to the next lake, which was bigger. Now this lake was four miles away, four miles of fallen timber. However, provided an incentive the group did the distance in record time. They were very pleased to see the crew that had come out to meet them. They spent that night on the 'plane. After Capt. Stirling-Hamilton had thus explained the rescue to a breathless audience, Capt. Custer got up once again, to philosophize on the expedition. He told us that at one point someone had said, "Oh for a dog to hunt with!" to which some joker replied, "lf we had a dog we couldn't use him for hunting, we'd eat him!" 30 THE ASHBURIAN If you are making a trip, and crash, you must never leave your aircraft. For though the R.C.A.F. gives enough supplies for any emer- gency, yet there are plenty of jackasses who slip up in providing a 'plane. ln this case a man had been assigned the job of checking the emergency kit, and he had fallen down on the job. There were no axe, no sleeping bags, no emergency ration, no pocket compass, no machete. XYith proper equipment they could have built a cabin and lasted all winter if necessary. liveryone counted the days he had to live, being in direct pro- portion of the ammunition on hand. Capt. Custer said that in such times, one should enjoy one's last days, and should have something to fall back on, such as the Bible, poetry, and literature. He said that there were two important factors which helped them through the crisis, manners and religion. ln the way of religion, they had prayers twice a day, for the night and for the trail. Ultimately, however, religion is between the individual and God. Manners are important to everybody. Capt. Custer cited as his example Capt. Stirling-Hamilton. Capt. Sir Robert Stirling-Hamilton, who had had 33 years in the service of His Majesty's Navy, had taught them all manners through his own shining example, he had been the lubrication which kept their nerves from getting on edge, he had kept up the general morale. ln conclusion Capt. Custer quoted the following lines from Thackeray: "XYho misses or who wins the prize Go lose or conquer as you can, But if you fall, or if you rise Be each, pray Cwod, a gentlemanf, Mr. Glass then got up and thanked Capt. Custer and Capt. Stirling- Hamilton. He said that there was little he could say, but that their speech had been both entertaining and salutary. He would dispense with cliches. Ashbury was grateful for a wonderful experience. Front row: A. Pritchard. D. Lyon, R. Darby, XY. Lee, R. Kerr 2nd row: D. Graham, XY. Brownlee. j. Bladwin, B. Hcney. l. KlacI.arcn. CI.

Yates MQW XA Q FIRST HOCKEY I xg TEAM ji His season the First Hockey Team started with only a few members from last year's team. But under the able coaching eye of Lieut. Higgs. and from the interest shown by players. a well-balanced team was produced which improved steadily as the season progressed. At the beginning of the season a number of exhibition games were played against LaSalle Academy, Carleton College. and teams from the R.C.A.F. house league. All these games were helpful in gaining practice and experience for the team. Two inter-school games were scheduled against Lower Canada and Bishops Unfortunately, the l3ishop's game was cancelled due to a scarlet fever epidemic in Ottawa. The match with Lower Canada 32 THE ASHBURIAN was played in the Montreal Forum and proved to be an interesting and tightly played contest. Ashbury was minus sharp-shooting winger Doug Heney who was sidelined due to illness, and his presence was missed by the team. Goalie Bill Lee played outstandingly behind a hard-hitting defence and a shifty forward line. But L.C.C. had the edge in weight and experience and Ashbury ended up on the short end ofa 3 to 1 score. One match was played against the Old Boys. This game was enjoyable both from the point of view of the players and of the spec- tators. lt was a close, sea-saw battle all the way. XVhat the Old Boys lacked in condition they made up in hockey ability and roughness, and the game ended in a 6-4, score in their favour. The annual Inter-House Hockey game was a XVollcombe House victory. Most of the XVollcombe House team was made up of First Field members, and their experience and defensive style of play over- powered a valiant Connaught House sextet. Because the team was young, the season proved a valuable one in experience and knowledge. Next year we expect to have a large Jercentafre of this vear's team back and build a winnin team. l as . 3 JUNIOR SCHOOL HOCKEY HE 3rd Field Hockey team had a very successful season this year. In the three way league CSedbergh, Selwyn House and ourselvesb we succeeded in defeating Sedbergh both at home and away. Although our margin of victory was a fairly comfortable one, Sedbergh put up a good fight in both games. As Selwyn House also defeated Sedbergh in both games we were doomed to meet Selwyn House in a sudden- death game in Montreal for the championship. The play was scoreless right to the middle of the third period, when Selwyn House scored in a scramble in front of our net. On the whole the game was a tight, well fought battle. XVe had two games with our friendly rivals, Rockcliffe Public School. The first game we won 3-1. The second game was very excit- ing, being played in the Auditorium with the score 3-3 at the end of regular playing time and 4-4 at the end of overtime. A great deal of the success of our team was due to the excellent coaching and handling of the team by Col. Brine. Special praise must be given to such players as Dillon, .Nlaxwell Cwho was captainj, Sobie ll and Finlay ll for their great help to the team in paving our way to a successful season. ON. THE ASHBURIAN 33 SKIING V Capmilz-Ross I Vice-Cnptnill-PRici: vl- Y Hi-2 ski team had an encouraging year and achieved a very X ff' considerable amount of success. A four-man team, consist- ,,4ea,Q'ing of Ross I, Price, Hood and Gill, represented the school in an informal three-way meet against Scdbergh School, Nlontebello, quite early in the season. XYith Larry XYood winning both slalom and downhill, and placing second in the cross country, the team won the meet. The next team competition was the all-important triangular meet with B.C.S. and L.C.C. For this meet Bob Bryce was added to the team for his CI'0SS-Ctllllltfy ability and to make up the necessary five men. The meet was held on the week end of Saturday, February 26, at Hillcrest, in the Eastern Townships. Un Saturday morning the downhill was held and was won by Scott Price, with Larry XYood second and Gillies Ross third. After lunch the slalom was held. Larry XYood, who had turned in the fastest time on the first run of this event, had the misfortune to fall and suffer a bad ankle injury in the second run. At first this seemed to ruin the team's chances, as four out of the five men are required to Hnish, and Bryce had refrained from racing in the downhill and slalom. This left only three finishers, but the L.C.C. and B.C.S. teams were kind enough Q9 fp to allow an average of our three times L to be counted. On this basis we won the slalom, with G. Ross first and S. Price second. In these two events Ash- bury had obtained a twenty point E lead. The cross country race remained, , f and on its result rested the outcome X W, of the whole meet. lt was held the B 'X following morning. XYith Larry XYood absent, the team was considerably weakened. Bob Bryce clocked the best Ashbury time and placed third. Gillies Ross 5th, and Evan Gill 6th, Bishops won the event however, but only by io points, not enough to overtake our lead, and so Ashbury won the meet. Scott Price came first in the individual aggregate, and Gillies Ross came second. 'N EAM Slil x lf 1 T ,- -a ,..Cf f v ,1 -1 I -4 A 'N - ,Q A .- lirvcc, If .1 a 1 - S- 'I U T!

With Larry Hood still out of commission the team was limited to four members. In most meets ICHIHS consist of five members, the best four times counting in each event, so with only four, no allowance was made for an accident or a stroke of bad luck such as had happened at B.C.S. However, the team managed to place third in the combined score Cless than a point behind St. Pat'sJ, winning both slalom and downhill. Evan Gill completed the fastest slalom run in the junior division and Scott Price made the best time in the junior downhill. Individually, the team members raced often at Camp Fortune and other ski centres, and each achieved his share of success, Evan Gill came third in the junior downhill in the Central Canadian Champion- ships with an excellent time, Scott Price turned in good times consis- tently on the Cote du Nord downhill run throughout the year, Larry XYood placed 5th in the junior A men's division of the Tascherau Downhill at Mont Tremblant, Gillies Ross won the junior slalom in the journal Trophy races and came third in the Gatineau Ski Zone combined downhill and slalom for the year. Many thanks go to Mr. Polk for his coaching and managership of the ski Held and for his inestimable help and kindness throughout the year, most especially on the B.C.S. trip, and to Mr. XY. R. lYright for his enthusiastic and generous support and encouragement of the tea1n. 36 THE ASI-IBURIAN BCDXING oxtit thirty enthusiastic boxers took part in a two week elimination series to produce eighteen finalists for the boxing tournament on Friday evening, Feb. 18. Before a packed gymnasium these boys put on an extremely good performance making up for what they lacked in ring skill by their determination to win. There was a good cross section of experienced boxers and green ring material that even the most fastidious boxing fan must have found entertaining. The best bout of the evening was between Cyman Sobie and Hugh XlacNeil. Both boys displayed considerable ring skill and both landed several good blows. Their Hnal round ended with the boxers swinging freely in an attempt to win the nod of the judges and points for their school house. In the welterweight class Evan Gill showed real promise to win the Grant Cup, presented to the boy showing the best ringcraft ability. Jimmy Finlay captured the crowds' fancy with a courageous and extremely aggressive display. He spotted Gillis Ross quite an edge in boxing ability and became the winner of the Rhodes Trophy, given for the most spirited and determined display in boxing. Other winners were-70 lbs., Pat Beavers, Q0 lbs., Geoffrey Carne, 112 lbs., Cyman Sobie, 126 lbs., Gillis Ross, 135 lbs., john Baldwin, 147 lbs., Evin Gill, I6O lbs., Bob Darby, 175 lbs., Don johnson, and the heavyweight bout was won by Donald Lyon. Points awarded for the inter-house competition were very close with lYoollcombe House winning by a scant margin of three points. His Excellency, Viscount Alexander, was an interested spectator and presented the winners with their respective awards along with his congratulations to all for a first rate show. G.XY.H.

Belcher said: "This h is been the best performance to dateg if l made that same remark on 1 previous occasion, l assure vou that I was as sincere in making it then as I am in repeating it now". XYhen he said this. Xlr. Belcher showed 38 THE ASHBURIAN also the sentiments of those of the audience whose memories went be- yond two Ashbury-Elmwood productions. One member of the old guard even compared it favourably with the productions of the last ten years. This in itself, of course, is not praise. It only acquired that Havour when one remembered that the same person had been enthusiastic beforehand about the quality of all those ten previous productions. ln amateur drainatics the business of choosing a play and of CASI- ing' it require a care and sensibility that are not called for on the pro- fessional stage, xvhere long training should enable any actor to change his personality. Voice-range is particularly relevant. Hoxv often have we seen a play chosen whose range of emotions no untrained voice could compass. lloxv often have we seen a play cast in such a way THE ASI-IBURIAN 39 that when acted none of the original play remained. "Hay Fever" had neither of these defects. Apart from the opening sequence, when one actor's voice is projected to the Hoor, and another's is muffled behind a book, it is a play that amateurs can do well. Xloreover, the casting was excellent. Having grown accustomed to the youthful key in which it was played, we became part of its atmosphere without any further effort of imagination. There was no actor who did not justify his, or her, choice for the part. For example, who could have been more perfect in the role of Richard Greatham, the diplomatist who proves gauche when seen beside the undiplomatic Blisses? This, in fact, is the spirit of Mr. Coward's play-the contrast between what are called "down-to-earth" people and people of "highly strung tempera- mentn. VVe are never quite sure which side has our sympathy. Because of that we can laugh with the Blisses at the outsiders, and with the outsiders at the Blisses, without feeling that we have let our side down. The way in which Friday's audience did this is proof enough of the success of actors and producer. Laughter was neither wrongly-placed nor even embarrassed. VVe would like to thank the hands behind the performance for charming and excellent sets and staging, and for all the little unidentifi- able acts of support without which "Hay Fever" could have had none of the polish which characterized it. Finally, our gratitude for a real entertainment goes to Mr. Belcher, and to the work of the actors whose pleasure, we hope, was not only commensurate with their effort, but also with the pleasure which they afforded us. CGD. 40 THE ASI-IBURIAN 1 12 "a WL, l ., V w.,m-my M X U gifts TASHB THE FCRMAL UR some forty of us, the great anticipation culminating in an even greater realization came to an end on the night of Friday, April 8, for that was the night of our annual formal. The school was beautifully decorated with streamers and crests, all in Ashbury colours-the prefects' common room was established as a sitting room for the prefects, and room F and the end of the hall for the remainder. The receiving line was composed of the Headmaster and Mrs. Glass, and of Henry Dreyfus, in his capacity of Captain of the School, and Louisa Gill. The hosts were the prefects, and they saw to it that the event was the success it was. Lastly, many thanks are due to Toby Setton, Bill Clark and "Urbie" Urbanowicz, who, through the assistance they gave to the prefccts, were instrumental in the achievement of the attractive atmosphere created by the decorations. .Xniong the guests, we were proud to welcome Cmdr. XY. bl. Ross, President of the Ottawa Branch of the Uld Boys' Association, as well as Mr. Belcher and Mr. lleney, of our own staff. l feel sure that all those, who had the good fortune to be present will agree with me that it was an evening which they will not soon forget. THE i-ISHBURIAN 41 CROSSCQUNTRY RACE N April 23rd, the day appointed for the annual running of the Cross-Country, We were again lucky in our weather conditions- bright and brisk, with good, dry footing for the race. For the Senior event there were only nine contestants. MacNeil l set the pace for the first two miles of the four mile course, closely followed by Gillies Ross. l At this stage Ross took the lead and McCul- loch l moved up to second place. The rest of the pack followed at some distance from the leaders who maintained their respective positions for the remainder of the course- Ross winning. The times were as follows: Ross l 25.51 McCulloch l 26: NlacNeil l 28. Thirteen contestants participated in the Intermediate event which was run in a highly 3 competitive spirit. The interest of the partisans if of the respective entrants ran high and no less than five boys were looked upon before the race as sure winners-to-be. NlacNeil ll. a new boy, however, surprised everyone by winning quite easily over Nlclnnes and Foulkes who placed second and third. The times: XlacNeil Il, 22.3OgAlCII1HCS, 22.351 Foulkes 22.35. 42 THE ASHBURIAN The greatest turnout came from the junior trackmen, of Whom there were seventeen in number. There the younger brother of the already laurelled Ross I added to the fan1ily's honours, winning by a wide margin in his class. The stiffest competition in this race lay between Sobie II and Bailey I, who sprinted it out for second place with Sobie beating his opponent by one second. Times: Ross II, 11.50, Sobie II, I2.00Q Bailey I, 12.01. In the final race, the Under Eleven, Hodgson, who won last year, again came in victorious, running the course in 6.56. Officiating were: Mr. Glass, Mr. Brain, Mr. Sibley and Lieut. Higgs. In the final standings the Houses of IYoollc0mbe and Connaught tied, with 7 1-2 points each. SEDBERGH TRACK MEET N Saturday morning of May 7, a five-man track team composed of Bob Bryce, Toli Cavadias, Bob Darby, Larry IV ood and Bill Yates, drove to Sedbergh School under the guidance of Messrs Belford and Higgs. Upon arrival we acquainted ourselves with various mem- bers and points of interest at the school, and then witnessed the rifle competition between Ashbury and Sedbergh. Arthur MacRae was outstanding with ninety-nine percent on "application" shooting. Upon completion of the shooting, everyone enjoyed a tasty lunch served in the Chalet-styled dining room of the school. In the afternoon the track and Held events were run off. Larry IVood was top man i11 the high jumping with four feet nine inches. Toli Cavadias sprinted to first place in the 100 yard dash with a time of 11.2 seconds.

SCIENCE NOTES HE Science Club this year had two general meetings, The first meeting held on October 29th, took the form of a Vocational Guidance Meeting. The speakers were: Lt.-Col. F. Nlassey, NIA., Ph.D., Director of Scientific Information for the Armed Services, who spoke on the subject: "The Chemist aim' His lolz", Nlr. jack Neil, M.C.I.C., of the National Research Council, who spoke on the subject: "The Chemical Engineer and His lobvg and Nlr. R. A. F. Carruthers, M.Sc., of the Division of Optics, the National Research Council, who spoke on the subject: "The Physicist and His lob". The speakers were introduced by Heney I, Dreyfus, and NlacCordick. Iiach speaker outlined the qualifications necessary for the particular field, and the chances of positions in these fields of endeavour in Canada. The even- ing proved to be of great interest to all those who attended. The second meeting of the Club took place on january z ist when we were fortunate to obtain the services of two outstanding speakers for the occasion: Dr. F. VV. R. Steacie, Kl.Sc., Ph.D., F.R.S.C., F.C.I.C., Head of the Division of Chemistry, National Research Council, who spoke on the subject: f'Che711isti'y and Lightng and Captain john Kerr, DBF., Supervisor of Nautical Services, Department of Transport, who spoke on the subject '4Niwigatio11". The speakers were introduced by Hart I and MacRae. At each meeting we also had the advantage of seeing two films. At the first meeting we had KCTIILTG Oil Distillation" and "Celite, the Story of the Diiitoiiiw. At the second meeting we had "Light" and 'fHei1t mid its Control". On Friday, january 28th, a group of the Science Club were invited to the Student Night of the Chemical Institute of Canada. The Hrst speaker, Nlr. Glen Gay, of the Defense Research Board, gave a brief outline of the possibilities in the Held of chemistry and chemical engin- eering. He also discussed the educational requirements for these par- ticular professions, and the present day demand for graduates. The second speaker, Nlr. F. H. Ditchburn of the Canadian General Electric Company, Chemical Division, discussed the topic 'iffpplieiitiolis for Plasticsn, demonstrating and explaining many of the new silicone plastics and water repellants. Two films "Plastics in Colozif' and "Clean IVate1"' were also shown. On january 8th, a group of the senior Students paid a visit to the Royal Mint. There we were interested in the manufacture of coins of the realm as well as war medals. On Sunday evenings, as usual after Chapel, many science Films have been shown. Our thanks are due to the following companies for supplying us with such interesting film material: The International 44 THE ASHBURIAN Harvester Co.g The National Film Boardg The Shell Oil Company of Canada Ltd.g The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. of Canada Ltd.g The Canadian Carborundum Co. Ltd.g Anaconda American Brass Co.g The International Nickel Co.g The Minneapolis Honeywell Regulator Co. Ltd.3 The North American Cyanamid Co. Ltd.g The johns-Xlanville Co. Ltd.g and the Canadian Westinghouse Co. Ltd. The Chairman of the Science Club this session has been Robin .XlacNeil, who has filled the post admirably. MUSIC HL: most important element in the teaching of music should be the general effect of awakening in the pupils a love for the art. The purpose of Music Appreciation classes at Ashbury is to try to give the students sound musical taste before they are ensnared by lesser values and to teach them to accept good music as a pleasure, rather than as just another study. This year we have stressed the music of present day composers. Stravinsky, Katchachurian and Aaron Caplan. We have discussed the music of the film and the ballet. The boys have learned to draw the orchestral instruments from memory, and We have endeavoured to teach them to recognize these instruments by their tone quality. Prizes were awarded to each form for the best notebook. The Rhythm Band did not participate in the Ottawa Music Festival of 1948-'49, as we have taken first place in this competition for the last three years. VVe hope to enter again next year however. A short lecture recital was given for the senior school and the boys were most enthusiastic. Irene lYoodburn, Xlus. Bac., ,-X.T.C.NI. THE ASHBURIAN 45 ' 1 OADET CORPS His year the Cadet Corps tried its fortune in all phases of training with results which were, generally speaking, very gratifying. Thursday afternoon, Nlay 19, saw the Annual Inspection of the Corps by Lieut.-Colonel George Patrick, ED., A.D.C., Oflicer Com- manding The Governor Generals Foot Guards, who was accompanied by several of the officers of his Unit, and Capt. R. C. Graves, Cadet Training Officer, Eastern Ontario Area. The reviewing Officer and aides were very high in their praise of the soldierly turnout of the parade and the general smartness and general efhciency of the Ashbury cadets. The programme consisted of fourteen movements and demonstra- tions. A march past in column, march past in column of route, advance in review order, squad training followed by the marching otf of the Flag, which concluded the ceremonial portion of the parade. A dem- onstration of "A section on the attack" was put on complete with full battle equipment, blank ammunition, Bren and Sten guns, which made for a very realistic encounter. The senior Corps was then marched off, loudly applauded by the spectators, to change into Physical Train- ing kit, while the junior corps went through a demonstration of physical training and class games. The junior platoon drew a round of applause from the many proud parents and friends present. The senior corps were then marched onto the field again in P.T. kit and put on a full programme of mass P.T. and gymnastic work. Qcurtailed somewhat by the cold inclement weatherl. There were 116 registered cadets in the Corps this year along with , f THE ASHBUR1,-IN 47 some .jo underage Cadets in the junior platoon. During the fall and winter seasons the Corps spent its time on First Aid. Signalling, Rifle Shooting, Drill, Weapon Training, Woodcraft and other general sub- jects such as Nlap Reading and Fundamentals. Poor weather kept us from doing any Fieldcraft until the spring but some cadets found this type of training most interesting. This year nearly all Cadets fired their Annual Shooting Classifica- tion, which was enjoyed by all. In this department there were 1: cadets who qualified as "NIarksmen, Sniper Class", with scores of oo or over, 16 who qualified as "NIarksmen, Expert Class", with scores of 80 or over, I7 "First Class Shots", and zo others who "Qualified", very gratifying results on the whole. A team of io cadets took part in the Royal Military College Annual Shooting Competition and reached an average efliciency of 84.7 per cent. VVe were fortunate to get new uniforms this season including the new type "Beret" with brass cap badge, a vast improvement over the previously issued wedge cap and plastic badge. The Corps had rather a difHcult task to do this season in maintain- ing the high standard set by the Corps in previous years, but I feel sure that you did not let down that standard. I would like to take this opportunity of thanking each and every member of the Corps for the real effort you put forth, both in your attention to work during the year and the excellent job you did on the Inspection. This task so splendidly fulfilled, you may now, with justi- fiable pride, put away your uniforms for this season knowing that you have done your part to make this another successful year. In closing may I say that what success we have achieved, or may achieve, is a direct result of the work and effort put forth by you all and, in particular, the backbone of the Corps, the Officers and N.C.O.s. My special thanks to z.Lieut. Edmundo Castello for his very able assistance in instruction, to C, fi'l Lieuts. Bower and Doug. Heney who shared the job of Adjutant, 2 i fc Henry Drefus, Platoon Commanders, Price, Pritchard, Darby, to C.Q.NI.S. Dick Elmer for a particularly good job as quartermaster and last but far from least my thanks and congratulations to C j,,f fCapt. Robin NIacNeil for a most efiicient job as Corps Commander. The competition for the most efficient Corps in the Eastern On- tario Area is bound to be stiff-more so than ever before, but I feel confident that we have made a good effort and trust that we will rate quite highly when the final decision is reached. On Friday evening, May zo, for the first time in ten years. a platoon of Ashbury Cadets paraded with the G.G.F.G. through down- town Ottawa. judging from the remarks and comments of the specta- tors they put on a very creditable exhibition. In future years it is our wish to parade more often with our parent unit. G.XY.H. P11 K i F-1 LJ D1-4 ' w sd va M Pi L1-4 1 w 5' ... '-: Q.. ll!!!

ASHBURY vs. B.C.S. AT ASHBURY May 13, 1949 N May 13th, in weather ideal for cricketing, Bishop's arrived for thc first of our annual home-and-home games. The B.C.S. XI went in to bat Hrst, and the Ashbury supporters felt they had some cause for gratification when, after an excellent exhibition of bowling and Fielding on the part of the home Xl, the visitors were retired for a modest score in the first innings. THE ASHBURIAN Sl By the time the fifth wicket had fallen, only ii runs had been scored, the sixth and seventh fell for forty-one, and the side was out for a total of 44. Sperdakos with I7 runs, and McGee with 16, were top men for Bishop's. Ashbury then went in and after a good sixth wicket stand by Ross C111 and Cherrier Ciol, the innings was completed for 6o runs, and Ashbury hopes ran high. In the second innings B.C.S. had apparently determined to pile up runs as quickly as possible in the limited time at their disposal, and in this they were IHOSI successful. VYhen the score stood at 81 runs for 8 wickets Cwith Ashworth top scorer at 29, the B.C.S. captain declared. Ashbury made a promising start in our second innings, as the score-board showed 27 runs before the first wicket had fallen. From that point onward, however, our hopes were quickly cooled, and the last wicket went down at the score of 45. Final score: First innings, B.C.S. 54, Ashbury 6o.

A. Edge, a batsman of note. The Staff gave the boys the privilege of batting first and the side was not retired until they had succeeded in reaching a score of 90. Dreyfus was outstanding for the School XI with a contribution of 31 runs. McCulloch I also enjoyed a good innings and batted up a number of boundaries to reach a score of 24. The Staff then went in to bat and, led by Mr. I-Ieney with 26 runs, totalled only 73 runs. MacNeil, for the boys, was effective in bowling, and took 7 of the wickets.

McCulloch ll defended valiantly at the last and was not out with four runs to his credit. For the Old Boys in the field, Mr. Heney treated us to a grandstand play: he threw down the wicket at the bowler's end from somewhere near short square-leg, after snatching off his wicket keeper's glove. The total of 70 did not seem a large one with some six ex-captains of cricket on the Old Boys side, but things went badly for them from the start and the first five wickets were down for only I4 runs on the telegraph. Smith 1461, however, was not one of these and on being joined by Snelling CIO, and Lawrence Col quickly pushed the total near a winning position which was gained with a couple of wickets in hand. Smith's innings was very comforting for Old Boys to watch for he was harshly treating the bowlers to drives through, past, and over mid-off with much of his former success.

AT ASHBURY DEAL weather prevailed for the Under 16 Xl's 1natch against B.C.S. which wasfplayed here on May 7th, Bishop's won the toss and elected to bat first. The first wicket fell at 3 runs, Turnbull being L.B.iY. to Foulke's first ball. Rogers and Hart then brought the score to 29 when Rogers was run out after scoring a careful 15. Hart con- tinued to play a steady innings of 18 until clean bowled by Malik. The remainder of the team could not cope wiht the bowling of Malik and Grimsdale and were finally retired for a total of 59. Ashbury replied with 61, Sobie's heavy hitting accounting for 24 and Foulkes playing a very careful io. Bishop's did not fare so well in their second inning being all out for a total of 34 of which Turnbull made 11. One of the features of this inning was Sobie's one-handed running catch of Rogers' hard drive to leg. Ashbury had little difficulty in reaching the Bishop's total for the loss of only 3 wickets. Sobie played another Hne innings before being caught by Rogers, and Brown had accounted for I3 when the innings was declared. Malik's bowling was particularly noteworthy in both innings. Eleven of the 18 overs bowled by him were maidens and he succeeded in taking II wickets for I4 runs. ASHBURY AT B.C.S. HE return match was played at Bishop's on May zist. Bishop's again won the toss and batted Hrst, being all out for a total of 37 runs. Parsons and Brown were our most effective bowlers, each taking 4 wickets for IO runs. Brown's analysis included a hat trick. Our first wicket fell at 5 when Brown was caught and bowled by Ogilvie. Sobie and Finlay then put on I5 runs for the next wicket before Sobie was run out. Five wickets now fell for a total of 5 runs and our position was anything but envious. However, with the help of a very cautious innings by Artola we had finally brought the score to 39 at the fall of the last wicket. Bishop's replied with 39 in their second innings. Badger with I2 being the only man to reach double figures. Grimsdale was our most successful bowler in this innings-taking 4 wickets for 5 runs. Ashbury's second innings started disastrously with z wickets down for 3 runs. At this stage Brown made our prospects look considerably brighter with a well played IQ which included 4 boundaries. Eight wickets were down for 34 runs when Grimsdale and Hart made a fine stand and succeeded in passing the Bishop's score before any further damage was done. THE ffSHBURl:1N S7 ln this ga111e the fielding of the Ashburv tea111 was particulariv good, no less than 14 catches being made in the two innings. Alert fielding held the score down bv allowing the Bishops team onlv 3 boundaries on a small field and accounting for 3 run outs. HOUSE CiAAll", Alav 3o, 1949 HE W'oollcombe team won the toss and batted first. Drevfus scored 23 runs and was top scorer for his side. Although W'oolleon1bc in- cluded seven of the first XI they were successful in making only 73 runs. Grinisdale, for Connaught, bowled well and took 8 wickets. The Connaught team proved surprisingly strong and Cherrier led the batting with 35 runs to his credit. Team out for IOS. As there was little time remaining for further play W'oollcombe then gave up the match to Connaught on the basis of the ISI innings. WTJOLLCORIBE flst Innings?

SS THE ASHBURIAN PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST N May 27th and May 3oth was held the annual public speaking contest for the Ross McMaster prize. The Middle and junior School contestants were heard on Friday evening, with Fraser, Carne, Scott I, Abbot, and Grimsdale as entrants in the former, and Scott II and Bailey I in the latter competition. In the main the quality of per- formance showed a dehnite improvement over the standards of recent years, with rather more spontaneity and conviction evident in the majority of speeches. First prize was awarded to Fraser, Middle School, for his exposition on the Berlin Air-Lift, with honourable mention for Scott I, who spoke on "Conservation". In the narrow Held from the junior School Scott II was the judge's choice, his topic-"Importance of VVeather Forecasts". Bailey I, his only competitor, spoke well on the subject of Newfoundland. In the Senior School contest, held on the following Sunday after morning chapel, the candidates were MacRae, MacNeil I, Urbanowicz, and Genesove. Here again it is safe to say that the calibre of perform- ance marked a distinct advance. In every instance the speeches were well organized, clearly and logically reasoned, and delivered spon- taneously, distinctly, and with conviction. MacNeil spoke on the advisability of intervention in China by the lYestern Nations, and MacRae on the benefits of Independent School Education. Genesove spoke on the reconstruction of Germany, and Urbanowicz on "Education and Happiness". The judges selected MacNeil as the winner of the event, with MacRae a very close second.

THE .-ISHBURI.-IN 1.1 SCI-ICOL CLQSING AND PRIZE GIVING His year's closing exercises were held on Thursday. june oth, and consisted as usual of track and field sports finalsiin the morning. leaving service in the school chapel and prize-giving in the afternoon. The service was conducted by the chaplain, Rev. XY. Bclford, assisted by the Headmaster, and, following the service, parents and friends of the school made their way to the lawn, where the boys were already assembled for the closing ceremonies. lYe were unusually favoured by the weather for this event, as the day was bright but cool, and the ideal temperature and sunshine added materially to enjoyment of the occasion by all concerned. IYe were pleased to have with us, for his first oflicial appearance. Mr. Duncan MacTavish, O.B.E., K.C., our new Chairman of the Board of Governors, and it was his pleasure and ours to welcome as guest speaker, His Excellency, the Governor-General. and Her Excellency. Lady Alexander. Having concluded his opening remarks, in which he paid tribute to the late Colonel F. Newcombe, his predecessor who died this year, Mr. Machfavish called upon the Headmaster to give his annual report. In his report Nlr. Glass gave an account of the accomplishments of the school year, laying particular stress on academic success attained. In touching on sports he pointed out the necessity of a continual offensive and warned against the policy of 'lying back and waiting for the breaks', which, he said, will never come to those who adopt that attitude. In conclusion the Headmaster deplored the lack of discipline which generally obtained in secondary school education in Canada and spoke strongly against the development of the 'drugstore cowboy' type in Canadian youth. He emphasized the importance of discipline. while at the same time striking a note of warning against carrying its application to extremes. At the conclusion of the Headmaster's report His Excellency in a Witty, familiar and instructive speech, told us that in his opinion there can be no possible excuse for boredom-that we must learn to devise and develop our own 3IllLlS6I'l1CI1tS. Recalling the days of his own youth in Ireland, where there were no prepared or commercializcd amuse- ments, His Excellency remembered that he and his brothers and sisters had never been at a loss for entertainment. They were never bored. He made the point that, 'if you are bored, you have no one to blame but yourself'. He added that many of his listeners might well. in later life, 62 TI-IE ASHBURIAN find themselves in foreign countries and faced with the necessity of accommodating themselves to unfamiliar customs and manners: in such circumstances they would have only the resources which they had built up Within themselves on which to rely. He concluded by urging us to take full advantage of all that Canada has to offer, and in this way to become good citizens. After this His Excellency presented the prizes to the winners, whose names and awards appear below. The Chairman then called on Henri Dreyfus, Captain of the School, to deliver the Valedictory Cro be found in its entirety under that titlel, and this brought the ceremony to an end, when at Mr. MacTavish's invitation the many guests repaired to the Memorial Din- ing Hall for tea.

Five years ago next September, I arrived as a stranger to Canada, knowing little of the language, almost nothing of the ways of the country. If any of you have ever been in that position I can only hope that you were lucky enough to meet with the kindliness and friendly warmth that greeted me at Ashbury. Many of you will realize from personal experience that the lot of any new boy at any Boarding School is not entirely a happy one during the first few days. There is the strangeness, the nostalgia, the bewilder- ment of the new surroundings and the new faces, the uncertainty. Perhaps you can imagine then that a boy who is a newcomer, not only to the school but to the country, will look forward to the experience with some trepidation. However, in my case the trepidation proved unfounded, for I was never made to feel that, as a foreigner, I was in any way set apart. Rather was I made to feel at home, that I was one of the group. Looking back on those early days I feel that this cordiality was a symbol-not perhaps a large or an important, or a shining one, but still a not insignificant symbol of the democratic principles of this country and of our school. To speak formally for all of us who are now leaving Ashbury to face larger problems, heavier responsibilities than any we have met here, I say that we take with us a deep sense of gratitude for the know- ledge, the direction, the sense of citizenship and the inspiration that we have received. Many who have left this school before us have dis- tinguished themselves in the service of their country, in the professions, and in the business world. Those of us who are leaving now will go out in the strong determination to do our utmost to follow their example and to do credit to this our school. Now, today, however, I must confess that our thoughts and emo- tions are perhaps more centred in Ashbury than in our future lives. I think that one of the most characteristic and valuable objectives of :Xshbury is the planting in all who come here of that corporate attitude of mind which is known as school spirit. In other words, a willingness to make personal sacrifices for the welfare and reputation of the school. To work hard, to play hard, and to keep discipline-these are after all. t ie essential tools with which a school must build and maintain a repu- tation. l think that most of us who are leaving today have tried with varying success to follow up these principles-even though we were HUF always trying consciously. And so I say that we hope that those of THE ASHBURIAN 1-S you who will be returning next year will maintain and even improve this school spirit and will, in turn, pass it on to those who follow. As the whole is greater than the part, so this spirit is even more important than the knowledge gleaned from books. And now to speak again, less formally of my personal experiences here: these five years at Ashbury I now realize more than ever, have been happy ones. l have often heard and read, that school days are the happiest days in your life. I must admit there have been some days when I doubted the truth of this. But I think perhaps the truth is that when' you are in the middle of a time you cannot really judge whether it was a good time or a bad time. It is only when you are at the end of it that you can judge. Then, if it was truly bad. it will look even worse than it really was. If it was good, it will look better. Looking back over my time at Ashbury, I can only say that it looks better. I have enjoyed the games, I enjoyed the companionship of the fellows, and I have enjoyed the work-or some of it. And I can say with true sincerity to those of you who will remain that when you. in your turn leave Ashbury, you will feel more homesick than on the day you came. During the last year, we, the prefects, have tried to do a reasonably good job, but we realize that no matter how hard we tried. our efforts would have been unsuccessful had we lacked the cooperation of you fellows. And so. if we have succeeded at all, the measure of our success is largely yours. If there have been times when you thought us un- reasonable, we ask you to remember those times when you yourselves are prefects. That will be our revenge. In conclusion, may I thank you, Sir, the Headmaster, may I thank the Assistant Headmaster and all the Staff, for everything you have done for us. You have worked for us and with us, you have put up with us and encouraged us, and whatever success we may meet with in the future will in no small part be due to you. be due to Ashbury.

Always interested in School activities and the general welfare of all things Ashburian, Henry is finishing his career here in a manner worthy of the best. Always popular, Henry has caused much merri- ment from time to time with his colourblindness fcf. abovel. He is invaluable in the Physics lab, contributing to the solution of some knotty problem. Henry isn't sure where his fortunes will lead him next fall, but it may be that another of those summers on the Riviera will make up his mind. So, whether he ends up in University, or fishing for crabs, good luck attend him wherever he goes. HENRY II-"Take up thy bed and walk" Most of us know Doug as a welcome visitor who drops in from time to time between attacks of scarlet fever. We were all deeply sorry, all kidding aside, when he caught it not once, but twice and, to top it off, got a dose of flu. It put a crimp in his studies, but fortunately Doug is coming back next year. We all hope the microbes will leave him alone, and that he will have better breaks next year. CASTELLO-"Blessed are the meek" Perhaps Cas is best known for his modesty. His mania for sartorial elegance re- mains undiminishedg in fact, he is one of Ashbury's ten best dressed men. We hear reports that the mirror in his room is worn out and will soon have to be replaced. Seriously, though, Cas is popular, and is one of our best prefects. He is leaving us this year to grace the halls of Rosario U way down south in California. HART I-"O, that this too, too solid flesh . . ." Chris carries a lot of weight around Ashbury. He is well-known for a certain '27 Buick which is wreathed in clouds of mystery, for few of us can boast of ever having seen it. Chris has also become famous as an actor as "Sandy", in "Hay Fever". A good average in school, Chris cut an imposing figure on the gridiron. If Lady Luck doesn't play him false, Chris intends to go to McGill next year. MACRAE-"IVhe1'e I made one-turn down an empty glass" Art-or Muscles as he is still sometimes called-is strictly academic, but has suc- ceeded in making the soccer team after five years of trying. Rumour has it that he's ruined his life by wooing maths and srience-"MacRae,s Folly", they call it. There's some talk, too, about his being a silent partner in "The Heap". He has lately caused a scandal by sporting a pair of pajamas which they say were smuggled out -f - .2 ':- of Alcatraz. Art has aspirations for McGill in the fall. ROSS I-"lack be 71l7IIl7l6', jack be quick" Gil is monarch of all he surveys when it comes to wit and humour. He is one of our best scholars and also fault with him. He can be the day and night, but we they say .... Gil intends file without pay. He hopes one of our best athletes. In short, it is hard to pick a seen driving a Plymouth around town at odd hours of wonder whether he can drive with his feet yet? Handy, to go to R.M.C. this fall, starting out as acting blank to become a general in the navy. HIQNLIY I-"A fwovnaw is only a wovlmn, but a good cigar is a smoke" Bauer Cany German students around?D sits by with a quiet air and knowing look at all the common room discussions, from which we infer that he knows more than he lets on. He has been smarter than most at keeping his scandals out of the public eye. He warns us, however, that he'll sue if we resort to our own inventions. Generally well-liked, Bauer is returning to us next year. M.rxt1Nlfll- I-".llm'h mn be nmde of a Sr'otc'h11m11, if caught young" llohin is Ashhury's own gift to the stage. We have it from reliable sources that he now signs his name "Noel Coward". He is known around the common room as thc recipient of all those-Ah! Chanel No. Sflovcly letters from Elmwood. A promising athlete, Robin is best at rugby and broadiuinping. They claim Robin is also very loud of mud especially the Mile Track variety. Robin is interested in drawing, and we lu-ar he was out one morning to sketch "Sunrise over the Canal". He is good in school and sports, and has of late become a poet of note tel. Literary Scctionl. Ile has aspirations for the Navy, and is going to Royal Roads next fall. where he hopes to lu-eoinc last mate. THE ASHBURIAN 1,7 FO R M N OTE S Form via Brownlee-Bruno has chalked up no mean record for himself in sports generally. In school, his remarkable effort keeps him at a good average. He can be identified at :ooo yards by his copious head of hair. Stan says "How juvenile!" Plays cricket with the ist team and is a determined member of the ist hockey squad. Burgoyne-Our own Einstein, Nick divides his time between getting 90,8 and getting on the Black List. He plays football and is guardian of the Holy Grail during ski season. An inveterate misogynist, Nick spends much of his classtime memorizing. He is a pro at chess and bridge, and is developing into a virtuoso on the 88. Cavadias-Toli is our man of mystery from the Near lfast. Under that cloak of silence he hides no mean brain, and is going on to Engin- eering at Dawson College next year. lVe have ample proof, too, that he's no Slouch on the track, as anyone will attest who has seen him run the "too" or clear the bar at 5 feet. Dalrymple-Billy Che has no nicknameb is quiet around school and keeps clear of trouble. At Easter in the same quiet way he got 84 in Algebra. Sir Dalyrmple jousts as a Caitiff Knight. His interests are many and varied, including skiing, rugby, tennis, swimming and sailing, and chess for rainy days. Bill is also a keen bridge player. Dreyfuss-Henry has done a great job as head boy, especially in view of his language difhculty. He has been vice-captain of football and captain of hockey, and shone as z ifc of the Cadet Corps. Hank won this year's science prize as well as several shields and trophies at the prize-giving. Elmer-Fudd has never done anything to set himself apart and distinct from his fellows, unless it has been to show us that there is such a thing as ideal behaviour. Dick hopes to go to L'.N.B. next year, and our best wishes go with him! Gottlieb-Butch let himself in for a lot of kidding when he decided to reduce this spring. A national crisis developed when he lost his calorie-counter. Butch finds that no one knows what his middle initial stands for, and after due consideration decided he likes Klark. Hart I-Chris plays ist team cricket and football. and as a member of the prefect body has held up school discipline. Chris is a hydrophile. and is developing into a first-rate mechanic. llc also turned in a line performance in the play. Heney I-Bow was captain of soccer this year. and a mainstay of the team. He also put in a good seasons work on the cricket field. Out of school. Bower is a hunting enthusiast. 68 THE ASHBURIAN Heney II-Doug is reasonably good on both sides of the scale, athletics and academics. He was elected vice-captain of hockey and of cricket. Unfortunately, he was sick a good part of the winter, and didn't have much chance to show what he can do. MacCordick-john is our mad scientist, spending his spare time wiring up his room in the most shocking manner. He is an ardent skier, and a tennis fan. john is also the class photographer. MacNeil l-Robinls activities around school are many and varied. He was 24fl'l man on the football squad, and bowls a mean break in cricket. Sickness kept him out of winter sports. ln school, Robin pulls in a fair average. He has currently risen to the post of School Demos- thenes by taking the senior public speaking prize. Along the same lines, he starred in our school play "Hay Fever". Robin was the OC. of our Cadet Corps, and turned in an admirable performance in a difficult job. Last but not least, he is an assistant editor of the Asbburiml. MacRae-Art's forte is languages, and he cleared the language side of prizes in Senior. Played for the ist soccer team last fall. He is Editor of the Asbbzzriavl and our chief lesson reader. Parsons I-The Cure's chief ambition in life is to get home as soon as possible after trig. class is out.

He won the Governor- General's Medal, the form prize, the English prize, the history prize and the maths prize, in addition to a number of medals and trophies for sports. Gil is another member of our illustrious ski team, and was also quarterback on the rugby team. As a member of the cricket Xl too, he was not unknown to fame. Sudar-XYalter comes from the land where summer is winter, and as for winter .... He played with the ist football squad, and made the ist hockey team. lYalt is a highly respected member of the com- munity because he doesn't have to take any gutf from anyone, Slav or otherwise. Yates-Ah, that profile! Big Bill, Tiger, is a famous man about Ottawa and we're proud to have him here as ambassador of all that is rugged.

GARDNER-"Mike" is from 'Kloreal' and that's no secret. Looking forward to chemical engineering, he has not yet blown his top. Lucky for Brandon they lost. HALL-"Dub" is Ferguson's rival in form work, and in addition has some dark secret for dispersing his corporeal presence-with his head in the clouds. his heart in the Little Theatre. and his nose to the grindstone, he keeps a thumb on the Annexe. HARGREAVES-As expected. Pete starred once more in the school play. His performance receiving general acclaim, Nlr. B. said he would make a marvellous ham, i.e., a full-grown Hamlet.

VAN DER VOORT-Recently boosted to the dizzy height of room captain, "Vanders', played strongly in the line for the first rugby team this year.

XYEEKS-"XVilly" played quarter on the second rugby field, left wing on the first hockey team, change bowler in the first cricket eleven, and jack-of-all trades in the Little Theatre movement.

Sebastien is a school master. ln fact, he teaches the middle and junior forms in one of the boys so-called better private schools. Usually. he is a peaceful soul, but like all humans he has his moments. Occasionally, the juniors call him a "monster", but this is ridiculous because he not really a school "monster" at all! Every third Thursday afternoon Mr. Sebastien visits the barber. He can not break himselfiof this habit just as he can not break himself of toying with the strap on his wrist watch when "his" boys are reciting poetry. Positively it must be a Thursday afternoon because this is the only time during the week he is not busy teaching, correcting papers or setting examinations. Xlr. Sebastien says the journey from the school to the shop is rather dull because he must travel in a tram. He dislikes trams because he thinks. they too, look somewhat like monsters! CA word he does not take to, kindlyj. He associates noise with trollies and since he hears so much clamoui' during game periods at the school his conception is not at all without foundation. Upon entering the barber shop, Mr. Sebastien immediately searches for "his" barber. Should the latter already be occupied with a cus- tomer, our schoolmaster becomes very irate and shows his disdain by snatching a magazine off the table, taking a chair directly opposite "his" barber, sitting down and proceeding to overturn the pages of the maga- zine with great gusto while scowling intermittently at his two antagon- ists. His barber's poker face breaks into a sickly smile then he continues nervously with the work at hand. The "unaccustomed" customer begins to feel most uncomfortable and prays continuously that the painful operation may soon end. In a few moments the antagonized customer is on his feet, makes a mad grab for his hat and coat, feverishly fumbles in his pocket for some silver to pay the check and frantically hastens from the shop. Mr. Sebastien rises, walks nonchalantly to the now vacant chair. sits down and begins to turn the pages of the magazine over quietly. He has chosen this particular barber because he is the oldest in the shop. Mr. Sebastien believes the oldest must be the most experienced. There is something to be said in his favour for such reasoning. "His,' barber timidly whispers, "Good afternoon", and begins with the clippers on the "back", Mr. Sebastien politely acknowledges the Salutation and continues to read in silence. The beginning of any haircut is rather boring our schoolmaster contends. The only enjoyment from 82 THE ASHBURIAN this portion of the undertaking is to tell "his" barber he also wishes an oil shampoo. VVhen his hair has been cut, he immediately rids himself of the magazine and sits back, relaxed, to enjoy the massage which is per- formed as an important part of the modern day oil shampoo. Mr. Sebastien loves to feel the vibrator on his scalp. He says it gives him a strange and wonderful tingling sensation which he has never been able to discover from reading any one of his many books. He loves to feel the barber rubbing the oil into his fast becoming bald pate, and to imagine it lubricating the many small wheels that turn his oft-supposed unlimited mental machinery. The washing he enjoys, too, because he says he seldom has time to wash his hair. All so-called hair "tonics" are frowned upon by Mr. Sebastien because he abhorrently pictures clouds of perfumed gases slowly aris- ing from sleek "polished" hair. He regards such a state as effeminate, and says such pungent lotions should never be used in any proper boys, school. Finally, "his" barber informs him he can rub, tug and brush no longer.

XV.A.E. WANDERLUST I asked the sun what lay behind the mountains, Beyond the towers that lift their backs Against the heights, and stare Hunch-shouldered on the trafficked streets. The sun perhaps was in a teasing mood, But talked instead of spring, Of colour flushing to the cheeks of Earth, A Catskin mantle for her frozen limbs. l asked the sky what lay upon the verge Of its uncharted blue. Its answer was XVith gypsy eyes that smile above the token Crystal, reading a fortune in our hearts. l asked the lake, the smudge of silhouette beyond. But silence seemed afraid to speak- Afraid the pebble spoil its perfect glass And carve reflection on the silver plane. THE ASHBURIAN 83 I asked the shadow sleeping on the ground Beside me, haunting questions, But it folded up its wings, and birdlike, Swain unfellowed into dapper space. C.G.D. MY "LITERARY LAPSEH S'l'RE'l'CHED comfortably at my desk in the schoolroom, letting the early sunlight stream across me through the open window. The hazy spring morning had filled me with a delightful feeling of ennui. The slight drone of a plane from the nearby airport pulled my early- morning eyes upward, and I watched the Hy-like, gleaming form wing swiftly into the blue. Thus it was that I didn't mind too much when we were told that for our prep that evening we would write a narrative . . . a good one. I didn't mind, for that was something I'd done many times before and wouldn't mind doing many times again-a rather pleasant interval between Algebra and Physics. The day passed evenly on its light Spring wings, and almost before I noticed it had gone I was sitting at the supper-table discussing such things as the quality of the food-as people do when they're trying to avoid discussing something else. My mind was occupied for a few moments by two boys, both trying unsuccessfully to extract one piece of butter each from one piece on the plate. My advanced mathematical studies having told me at once that this was impracticable. I settled the thing at once. However, I was soon wishing I'd let them squabble on. It would have kept me from trying to dream up the yet-undreamt- up. Two hours later I was sitting in my room waiting, and nothing had yet come. I stood up, took off my jacket, rolled up my sleeves and sat down again. Then it seemed to me that I hadn't enough paper, after all, the forth-coming narrative might prove long. I got the paper and laid it neatly before me. I filled my pen, acquired a blotter. sat down again, Put the pen to paper and waited - Thirty minutes later I was still waiting, only there were several sheets of crumpled paper on and under the table, the pen had dried out, and my face had lost its look of expectant composure. I was nervous-nothing had come, and now it would have to come by brute force-a terrible thing for one who fancies himself blessed with imag- ination. I refilled the pen and began: "The rain was pouring as john Baxter stepped-" I threw down the pen in disgust, and the few remaining strands of thought snapped as I discussed my predicament with a friend who had just happened along. I-Ie, however, had a story-something about rum-runners and the S4 THE ASI-IBURIAN R.C.M.P. On hearing this I callously snatched up my pen and paper and retired to his room where I found the school's Latin scholar in the throes of: "Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori-". I drew the wicker chair to the table, it was far too short and the goose-necked lamp wouldn't serve us both. Suddenly, forsaking his academic efforts, my companion took great pains to show me a new pair of pajamas advertised by a local depart- ment store. Nearly sick at the revolting sight I rushed from the room and returned to my own. I again put pen to paper and- "The rain was pouring as john Baxter stepped-". I nearly broke the window in my attempt to fling that sentence as far from me as possible. Then came chapel. Ah! I thought. Now in the peace and quiet of the chapel, inspiration is sure to come rushing at me. I sat very still, looking at the wilting, week-old Easter flowers, and then it came. Out of the dusty rafters and sickly smell of old flowers came my story. It hurtled itself at me, bits of dialogue flowed out of my mouth and into the mouths of characters I'd never seen before. It was wonderful! My problem was solved! just then I realized I was the only person kneeling and so I scrambled to my feet and fumbled in my prayer book for the 68th Psalm . . . The words were intricate, and I stumbled over a few but soon they were coming smoothly. VVe sat down and I remembered my story. At least I tried to, but all I got was the remembrance that I had had a wonderful story. It wouldn't come back as I walked down the chapel steps. It wouldn't come back as I coaxed it with some cake and milk, or as I climbed the thirty-five steps to the upper-flat. My room-mate was most helpful. He was engaged in a scientific experiment. It was to discover whether, when the radio was turned up to its most ear-splitting height, another boy at the far end of the lower- flat could hear it. I don't think he could-but it was, nevertheless, an admirable attempt on the part of my four-eyed friend. However, he seemed rather subdued after his failure, and only asked me twice Ca recordl how much time he had for a quick "puff". XYell, the story didn't come last night. I went to bed hoping that, as I had a double period the next day in which to work on it, it might return before too late. VK'hcn I awoke the next morning Cthis morningj something was troubling me-then I remembered that I couldn't remember mv story. I 1 THE ASHBURIAN 85 My worthy room-mate, having let me sleep to the breakfast bell, could offer no assistance. :Xt breakfast I was somewhat consoled by my English master who told me with quite a straight face that he didn't think that he could write a narrative under such conditions himself. IYell here I sit! The morning sun is again streaming across my desk and nineteen others with me are all putting the finishing touches on "The Crash", "The Cauliflower King" and "The Night Accident". I am the object of nineteen pairs of eyes, in fact l think you are look- ing at me too. I haven't thought of a subject yet, or have I? I am whispering across to Parsons, and now I begin and suddenly that wonderful story comes back in every small detail. Quickly I begin-the first line: "The rain was pouring as john Baxter stepped-" XlacNeil I-Form Vla IN YOUR ROOMS The moonbeams glimmer on the walls, A breathless silence seeps through the halls, The striplings vanish from my sight- This is Ashbury - This is night.

THE PROUD ROBOT EFFERSOX was lying on the couch in his laboratory. if such the shambles of test tubes. retorts and conglomeration of other scientific apparatus could be called. He had a singular liking for canned beer. which was shown by the number of empty tin containers strewn about the floor. He was trying to remember something. but not trying too 86 THE ASHBURIAN hard. It was about that robot he had constructed one night after he became "pickled", The thing was now standing over in the corner before a mirror, admiring itself, while cogs and gears meshed smoothly within a transparent coflin-shaped body. Meanwhile, the man in the room with jefferson was almost frantic: "I was talking to you less than a week ago, in this junk-heap, which you are pleased to call a laboratory. Don't you know who I am?,', he bellowed. "Candidly, no. Should IP" asked the other with genuine surprise, as he shifted position on the couch, preparing to go to sleep. "You might at least have the decency to remember the proposition which I made and which you accepted. The one that said you were going to find a solution to the problem of making three dimensional television sets that won't infringe on the copyrights of Tru-Tone Tele- vision Incorporated. They've covered about everything, and unless I get some new idea, I'm out of business. I sell home television sets you know, and they are using the same type of model but on a larger scale, and in theatres. That draws audiences, and now no one wants to buy a home television receiver when they can see the shows for slightly less cost in the long run. Tru-Tone has a monopoly on all theatres now, and, unless I do something, I'm ruined. I thought you would be able to figure out something if anybody could". "Oh, yes, I remember now. You are Alexander Vanning, of Tele- vision Industries, Limitedv. "Eactly, dope. Now start thinking of an answer. You have five hundred grand coming to you if you cann. At that instant the conversation was interrupted by a squeaky, metallic voice: "I-Iello, you pompous ass. Don't you think I'm beautiful? But don't bother telling me, I realize it". Vanning jumped, and then turned white, a horrified expression on his face. "XVhat is that?,' he screeched. "Nothing", said jefferson, with a look of boredom on his features. "just a no-good robot that has a high opinion of himself. I can't control him and haven't the slightest idea why I made him. Oh, welln. After Vanning's departure, jefferson turned to his robot: "Look, why did I create you?,' "Dont bother me", said the vain machine, "I'm admiring myself. .Xren't my gears lovely?" NUI1, piHieF", said the scientist hotly. Then, more gently: "Say. why don't you hypnotize yourself and release your subconscious mind? THE ASHBURIAN 37 You might be able to see yourself better that wav". The robot did not guess his creator's plan. I "lVell, maybe", returned the robot. "I'll try". jefferson hastily pried open some beer cans to prepare himself. cutting his linger in the process. "Damn!", he ejaculated. "I wish they'd make these cans easier to open". Ile drank long and deeply and thought to himself: So far the robot is out of control. but if I could just discover the reason why I have made the machine. I could command the robot to perform its function and make it a slave to me from now on. It would perform any reasonable task I ask. Such is the robot's nature. After all, radioatomic brains do not function like the human brain, save in a few respects. If the robot was hypnotized, it might reveal its secret. But why the devil did I make it anyway, when I should have been pondering over Vanning's difficulty? He poured more liquor down his scarified gullet as he lay Hat on his back. He usually called the robot "joe" when he wished to reason with it, as "joe" liked to be thought of as a significant machine. "joe", jefferson asked, 'fare you hypnotized?" "Yes". "Are you beautiful?" "More than I ever dreamed". "IYhy did I create you?" No answer. He licked his lips and tried again: "Joe, you've got to answer me. U'hy did I make you?" Hesitatingly, a faint, muffled voice proceeded as if from the interior of the machine. "One night last week you were opening beer cans. You cut your finger just like you did tonight. You said you were going to make a bigger and better can opener, that's mel". jefferson practically fell off the couch. '4So that's it!" "Huh?'l said the robot as it seemed to awake from a daze. "Open that can!", yelled jefferson. "Oh, so you discovered my secret. Hell, I guess I'm just a slave to you now". "Damned right you are. But, oh well, what difference does it make? I still haven't solved Yannings' problem". "Yes you have". said the robot. "You made the solution to the problem in me. You made me capable of producing a certain subsonic note, which, when broadcast in the three dimensional television theatres would make the crowd first uneasy, and then panicky. The people would feel they would have to get out, for some unknown reason. and soon they would be jamming the exits in a desperate effort to escape. 88 THE ASHBURIAN The television theatres would go out of business. You see, subsonic notes cannot be heard, but they can be felt. They have this peculiar psychological effect on people". And so it was. Soon every theatre in the city was closing up, and more and more people wanted the home models. Vanning's business picked up wonderfully, while Tru-Tone faded to the background. jefferson collected a staggering cheque from Vanning, so he celebrated at his laboratory with a new shipment of canned beer. The robot opened his whole stock of cans with the greatest of ease, and jefferson drank. He lavishly praised the robot, which had now lost its vanity. "Let's sing a duet, joe". "You're drunk", joe answered in a characteristic metallic voice. "I know, but let's sing anyway". They did, and a moment later all the dogs in the neighbourhood were howling. MacCordick, Form VIA.

THE .-ISHBURIAN sv SAMUEL DE CHANIPL.-XIN -FATHER OF NIQXV FRANCE oaom' knows what Samuel de Champlain looked like when he was born or how he spent the early part of his life. The portraits we see in our history books, supposedly of Champlain, are in fact of Michel Partieelli-Contraileur-general des Finances under Louis XIV. The original portrait, once thought to be by Nloncornet, is reallv bv an unscruplous painter called Ducornet, who was born without 'arnis and with only one foot, but with brush in his teeth and palette in his toes produced a considerable number of paintings. XYe do know that Champlain was a great man and a good man, and the first man that ever loved Canada. He was born sometime between 1564 and 1573, probably in 1567. His father was a sea-captain of the little city of Brouage. We know nothing of his youth but no doubt he made an early acquaintance with death, privation and XVRIII in the frequent sieges this little town under- went during the Huguenot-Catholic wars. He served as billeting officer in the army of Henry IV, and this war-time connection with the King was to prove useful when the time came that Champlain wanted the royal favour for his North American ventures. He later was able to accompany the Spanish fleet in one of its transatlantic voyages where he was of further service to his king when he mapped the Spanish defences in the New IYorld. But the real inspiration did not come into his life until he set foot on the shores of Canada on Hay 27, 1603. This Hrst voyage was made under the patronage of Vice-Admiral De Chastes, but the expedition was commanded by Pontgrave-a man whom Champlain always liked and admired throughout their association together. In his account of the trip over, Champlain tells only of the things that would interest a seaman like himself, but his accounts of the Indians and their customs omit very little. lYhen they arrived. there were signs of great commotion among the natives on the shore. But the explorers went ashore with the two Indians that they had taken over to France, and making signs to show their peaceful intent. they were invited to the chief's great lodge where they found a feast in progress. One of the Indians from France gave a long speech in which he told the others that the great French King wished to be their friend and would help them IIILIICC peace with their enemies the Iroquois or send mighty armies to help wipe the111 out. After the natives had replied with many protestations of good-will and affection. the great 90 THE ASHBURIAN feast began. This feast was to celebrate one of the few victories against the Iroquois. The explorers continued down the river to the Lachine rapids and then returned home. On arrival in France they found that De Chastes was dead. Cham- plain then went to the King. He brought with him several curiosities from the new land, one of them being the son of an Indian chief. This little boy was dressed in fine clothes. He died within a year. Champlain explained to the King how injurious it would be if the fur-trade was thrown open to all-to which the King agreed. He was then put in touch with Pierre du Gua, sieur de Monts, who was inter- ested in procuring a monopoly. As an old friend and fellow-campaigner with the King, he had little difficulty in procuring the post of lieutenant- general and vice-admiral of New France. Champlain took the post of Geographer and Cartographer to the expedition. This time two ships were to make the trip-one captained by Pontgrave and the other by Captain Timothee of Le Havre. Many young noblemen Went on the trip, some because they had a lust for adventure, some restless with the ease and comfort in France. Also going on this voyage were one hundred and twenty artisans, Carpenters, masons and soldiers. So, on March 7, 1604 the two ships set sail, starting the first venture in colonization since Cartier's second trip. Once they had reached their rendezvous Champlain set off with a party to chart the coast. VVhen he returned, it was time to think about a place for the winter. They finally chose St. Croix Island. The reason for this was principally fear of Indians, but nevertheless it was a bad choice. Un this island there was no protection from the bitter north wind-the place was simply unsuitable for settlement. Once the choice had been made-all set to work with a will and built a store- house, live houses, a chapel, a forge, an oven and a mill. It has been quoted to show that the French were so supremely ignorant of this country that they brought their woodwork. The woodwork however was merely the sort of thing that couldn't be made in the new settle- ment such as window frames. The winter passed with many dying of scurvy. The next winter was spent at Port Royal. This was in all respects a more suitable place to spend the winter. Champlain had been away for several months on a tour of exploration but the majority of the settlers remained in Port Royal. Since both Champlain and de Monts were away, the men began to get restless. and spoke of deserting Champlain and going back home. But thanks to the genius of Marc Lescarbot-an adventurous poet-the situation was saved and the first Canadian drama welcomed the return- llig VOy2IgCI'S. THE ASHBURIAN 91 The second winter was in all respects more successful than the first. The Order of Good Cheer kept the men in good spirits and kept the food of good quality. This was a competitive organization whereby each man in turn was in charge of the food for a day. Fach man tried to have for his day food of better and more original quality than the others. In the fall of 1607, Champlain was obliged to return to France in order to get the monopoly renewed. This accomplished, he returned to Canada. This time he established settlement at Quebec. The Indians soon called him to his promises to help them in their wars against the Iroquois and finally Champlain accompanied them on one of their raids and completely terrified the enemy. That fall he was summoned to France to make his report. The monopoly had expired but the company decided to continue with the project anyway. They discovered that it didn't work that way, and when the news came of King Henry's assassination, Champlain had to go back to France again. XVhiIe he was there he married Helene Boulle, a young girl of twelve. This time he returned to Canada and was the first white man to shoot the Lachine Rapids. He did some profitable trading before he returned to France that fall. There he injured himself and it was HOI until March that he was able to go to Canada. During the next few years he did many things. He firmly estab- lished the settlement at Quebec, explored and mapped a great part of th country as far as the Great Lakes, and conducted a major attack against the Iroquois, and on his frequent trips to France he campaigned vigorously for the rights of the colony. IVhen the English took it illegally-Champlain was tireless in his efforts to get the apathetic officials to take some interest in getting it back. All through his life, Champlain had to work hard against the apathy of the scheming power-holders. IVithout such a man as he- New France would never have existed for more than to years. He was greatly admired and loved by the Indians who sincerely mourned for him after his death on Christmas Day 1635. They always knew that they could trust him. All through his life he was driven on by a vision of Christian French and Christian Indian living together in harmony in a greater Canada.

People throughout the country are beginning to realize the wealth of pleasure which may be derived from the observation and conservation of natural objects. VVhen our grandfathers were young, not so many years ago, it was necessary to Hcollectl' birds, as you might stamps, in order to study them. Due to the publication of well illustrated guidebooks this has proved no longer essential. My grandfather, when in his prime, had quite a substantial collection of birds and their eggs, which proved a constant source of regret to him throughout his life. There are really two sides to ornithology, the scientific angle, dealing specifically with a special phase in birdlife, and the "purely entertainment value" side which usually contains all phases in a con- densed and more elementary form. Of course the latter is by far the more popular, but the former is gradually coming into its own. That the bird-watcher has plenty of opportunity of adding to his sum of knowledge as well as enjoying himself is testified by julian Huxley when he says that, 'fwe are still not in possession of even a moderately full knowledge of the actions and detailed way of life of any but a few British birdsf' To prove the wide appeal of ornithology may l tell the following story: Recently a Richardson's Owl, from the sub-arctic, was seen by three school boys in the Toronto district. Quickly the news "leaked" out and in a matter of hours a history professor, two bank managers, a locomotive engineer, a government munitions inspector, a profes- sional ornithologist, a furrier, a Zoo keeper and several inquisitive school children were on the scene, all hoping for a glimpse of the strange winter visitor. This is but an example of the growth of the hobby in Ontario alone. In Toronto over one thousand people belong to natur- alists' organizations, of which there are many scattered throughout the province. There is also a Federation of Ontario Naturalists which co- ordinates the efforts of the individual groups. To spur the interest of all Scotsmen in my reading audience may l point out thaqornitliology on a small scale is not in the least expensive. l claim that it will only cost you the price of a reliable bird book and no more. During the summer of 1947, with my Tory Peterson volume, l saw over seventy different species in the Ottawa district alone. I must admit that towards the end of the summer l began to use a small pair of mother-of-pearl opera glasses, but these did not greatly extend my vision. THE ASHBURIAN '13 Conservation is the direct result of ornithology, if enough of our people became interested in birdlife and its welfare, they would per- haps unconsciously, help others to learn to enjoy and conserve at the same time. We are not living in our grandfather's day when it was necessary "to collect to observe." I do not mean to say that hunting of wildlife should be entirely prohibited, for it is quite easy to sec the hunter's point of view on such a radical change, but if the sport is carefully regulated and effective laws passed protecting the songbird, the world outside the cities would be a much more pleasant place. We IHLISI try to convince the people of our country of the imperativeness of conserving what natural resources we have left with us. If we do not work quickly our chance will soon be gone forever and our names shall be a blemish on future generations. Scott I, Form Remove.

Agriculture is also the most widely-extended and most important of all occupations. Many people do not realize the importance of agri- culture. Most of the essential things that men need, like food and clothing, come from the country. Agriculture began when the Hrst man took some plants for his food. The next step was when the man scratched the ground and planted seeds. Then men built a plow from a forked stick. This plow was hauled by two or three men and was held in position by another. This work was too hard for them and men tamed the ox for hauling that plow. The ox was and still is used to carry burdens also. From this single beginning agriculture has advanced through the centuries until today great engines do the work of man and beast. There are now some engines that harvest, thrash and sack the grain ready for market. The progress of agriculture has advanced about as rapidly as other arts. The more rapid advance in recent times is due to the following: Cal Tramportatiovz If a farmer produces corn, for example, and he cannot transport it to a market where he can sell it, it is of no use. Since the trans- portation is better now the farmers can produce more and easily sell it to the consumers. Thus transportation has helped a great deal in the progress of agriculture. Cbj Machinery Machinery has also helped very much in the progress of agricul- ture. The machines used now in farms do the work of ten men. The work is done better and faster. The cultivation of the great farms on the prairies in Canada as well as in the United States would be im- possible without machines. Simple implements such as the axe, the rake and the spade have improved also making agriculture much easier. feb Cl767lliSf7'.Y Chemistry has also contributed to the progress of agriculture. The farmer can now learn in the agricultural colleges the kind of crops he can raise on his farm with greatest success. Agricultural chemistry may now be studied in newly built colleges. Cdj Ed7lCKlfi07I The farmers did not know many things about the constitution of the soil a few years ago. There is now a great demand for graduates from colleges and high schools. The demand for supervisors and teachers of agriculture is also very great. THE ASHBURIAN Q5 Cel Scientific Agrivultzzre All the factors above have combined to make agriculture a science and an art. Many scientists are even in the remotest parts of this world to help the farmers solve their problems. ffl Prefvevztioiz of Disease The prevention of disease is an essential part of agriculture. The diseases are always robbing the farmers of their profits. Now science saves the farmer millions of dollars. Baaxcuas or .AGRICL'I.'l'L'Rl-I Agriculture is so widely-extended that it has to be divided up in many branches. Most farmers give attention to one or two branches of agriculture. The following are the principal branches in America: Cal Cereal Raising In some regions the soil and climate are adapted to the raising of different cereals. For example Canada, Minnesota, and North Dakota are adapted to the raising of spring wheat. tbl Other Crops In some of the northern states of the United States where the climate is cool, flax is extensively grown. Potatoes are also grown in these regions. Oats and other cereals are also grown in these regions. fel Horticzzltwe Horticulture is the branch of agriculture which includes the raising of Howers, the keeping of gardens, the raising of vegetables and fruits. All forms of horticulture are intensified farming, that is the cultivation of a small piece of land that is highly fertilized. fdj Live Stock Some localities are especially adapted to raising live stock. These regions are those in which the soil is adapted to the cultivation of alfalfa and other crops as food for the animals. INCREASE IN 'rm-3 XTALUE OF LAND There are several reasons for the increase in the value of land in the last forty years. One of them is the increased production per acre. Another reason is the increase in population. All land is gradually being occupied and leaving less place for other people thereby increasing the demand for land and so increasing its value. The demand for farm products is increasing with the growth of population. The price of farm products has increased also making the price of other products rise. Many countries not only feed their population, but export to other countries. The governments of many countries are now helping the farmers. They are buildng agricultural colleges to make life for the farmers better and easier. Luyken.

It is nearly a hundred and fifty miles long and over seventy-five miles wide at one point. The lowlands near the sea, and the southern part, are inhabited by japanese and docile Phillipinos, but the northern interior is inhabited by fierce head-hunting tribes who prey on those individuals who stray too far from civilization. During the Second XVorld War C1939-19451, a large number of japanese troops Hdisappearedw while they occupied the country. The outposts, stationed in the hills to put down uprisings, often were never heard from, and when the patrol that was usually sent out to contact these reached its destination it would find only a few headless bodies and some of the very heavy equipment that had been sent up there. What had happened? Eventually this mystery was solved. The head-hunting tribes would prepare for war and then leave their village. They would crouch near the outpost awaiting the signal to attack. Then the chief's warwhoop would be echoed and re-echoed to his men, as they attacked and exterminated the surprised garrison. As very little resistance was offered the ground would soon be covered with blood and bodies. Then, with the heads and equipment of the soldiers carried with them, and desolation and death behind them, they would triumphantly march back to their village. The heads and equipment were distributed among the members of the tribe. The heads were shrunken and preserved by the tribe's special process. The different tribes had different methods of preservation. There are always heads of victims mounted on the door posts of the village. These tribes did so much harm to the japanese that the Allies were grateful, although no one has offered to convey that information to the tribes. Somehow the climate never agrees with those who were ordered to carry the message. Gilbert, Form Remove. THE LIFE AND TIMES OF SAMUEL PEPYS AAIUI-IL Pepys was a more-than-average citizen of his age, but it is not his achievements in public life that make him an important historical figure of his day-it is the fact that for nine years of his life, he kept a diary, giving us a human and living picture of life during that troubled period. He was born on February 23, 1633, in a little room above the tailor shop owned by his father-john Pepys. His mother was Margaret Kite, the sister of a XYestchapel butcher, and formerly a washmaid. He THE ASHBURIAN 97 came from an ancient family, but he himself did not think that his ancestors had ever amounted to much. He got his early education at Huntington and later went to St. Paul's-a seminary of learning presided over by the Puritan Dr. Langley, of whom Pepys wrote "his awful presence and speech struck mighty respect and fear into his scholars, which however. wore otf a little after they were used to him." He left St. Pauls for Trinity College in Cambridge in 165o where we know little of him except that he was severely reprimanded for being Hscandoulously overseene in drink" one night. He took his degree in 1653, and in 1655 at the age of zz, he married Elizabeth St. Nlichel, the fifteen year old daughter of a poor gentleman. The young couple were peniless until Pepys was employed as personal secretary to his cousin-Sir Edward Nlontagu. He continued in this capacity for some time until he was engaged as clerk under Nlr. George Downing, later created a baronet at the Restoration. It is during this period that he began his diary-on jan. 1, 1660. until his sight began to give out, more than nine years later. He wrote the diary in a sort of cipher-shorthand, which not only saved space. but Served as a guard against any of his secret thoughts being made public. In fact it took a scholar seven years to decipher the diary- after he had guessed the key. Pepys was soon after made secretary to the two Generals of the fleet, and accompanied Sir Edward Nlontagu to bring home Charles ll. In june 1660, Pepys was nominated Clerk of the Acts of the Navy. in recognition of his services. He therefore moved to a house belonging to the Navy Office in Seething Lane in the parish of St. Olave Hart Street. Pepys was a hard-working man. but nevertheless he did an amaz- ing amount of theatre going, etc., after he had discharged his duties as Clerk of the Acts. He worked hard to ensure order and economy in the matter of Dockyard expenses, and he tried to cheek the rapacity of the contractors who then supplied the navy. ln all possible ways he tried to reform the navy administration. During the Dutch war, he redoubled his effortsg in fact he was one of the few to remain in the city during the great plague. and he re- mained at his post the whole time. He soon became Treasurer to the Commissioners of the affairs of Tangier. During the great fire in London, he rendered great service in sending dockmen to blow up houses, arresting the Hire. Soon, however, came the memorable episode of the Dutch enterprise against Catham, and Pepys was involved in a parliamentary inquiry. He was elected to prepare the defence of himself and his colleagues. 98 THE ASHBURIAN and in a three hour speech, he totally convinced the inquiring board of their innocence, and the matter was dropped. It was soon after this, that Pepys was obliged to discontinue his diary. "And thus ends all," he writes, "that I doubt I shall ever be ablei to do with my own eyes in the keeping of my journal, I being not able to do it any longer, having done now so long as to undo my eyes almost every time that I take a pen in hand, and therefore whatever comes of it I must forebear, and resolve from this time forward to have it kept by my people in longhand, and must therefore be contented to set down no more than is fit for them and all the World to know . . . And so l betake myself to that course, which is almost as much as to see myself go into my grave, for which, and for all the discomforts that will accompany my being blind, the Good God prepare me." He did not actually go blind-in fact the disorder did not gain ground during the rest of his life. ' Then, for the first time in nine years, he took a rest from his lab- ours, going on a trip through France, Belgium and Holland with his Wife. Unfortunately, soon after their return, Mrs. Pepys died. This sad event prevented Pepys from attending the election at Ald- borough, where he had been proposed as a candidate. Despite the efforts on his behalf by the Duke of York and Lord Henry Howard, Pepys was defeated. Later elected in another seat, he was charged with Papish sympathy, but was soon vindicated. Later he and another were locked up in the Tower on the charge of selling British naval information to the French. The trial was de- layed for months and it was a long time before the two men were allowed bail. Later they were let off. He retired from his secretaryship and for five years lived with his friend VV ill Hewer but in 1684 Charles summoned him as Secretary for the affairs of the Admiralty of England. In this post he continued until the abdication of james ll when he retired for good. For the next I4 years he devoted himself to his library and as president of the Royal Society he spent a quiet time until his death on May 26, 1703. He left his books, etc., to Magdalene College where they still may be found. Sources: IJ Samual Pepys the Man in the Making, by Arthur Bryant. :J Pepys Diary and Correspondences, Deciphered by Rev.

LAC DES ISLES s l'1's name implies, this medium sized lake in the heart of the Laurentians has many an island, large and small, dotting its placid surface. Surrounded by towering mountains, it is a haven of peace and quiet, and a refuge from the noise and worry of the city. Early one morning a few friends of mine and I were paddling slowly along on the lake. just as we passed one of the islands, the sun seemed to jump over the tip of the highest mountain, shedding its brilliant light everywhere. We were floating in a sea of molten bronze. The trees on the shore and on the sides of the mountains above were instantly changed from dark green to brilliant red. Even the clouds seemed to be on fire. This slowly died away as that radiant orb, the sun, climbed higher. The trees were mostly evergreens and birch. Occasionally a tower- ing oak would dwarf the grove of pines and birches in which it was standing. Here and there a clearing surrounded by maple saplings would appear, or a lone pine standing on the crest of a hill. Sometimes a bold crag would jut out from the surrounding terrain and block off a large portion of the sky with its hard lines. The woods had awakened. Small birds chirped as they hunted for food among the birches. An owl gave a last tired "hoot" and went to sleep for the day. A bear came down to the lake for a drink. then slowly ambled off to find a bed in a hollow log, or a large pile of brush. A few minutes later a huge bull moose stepped magnificently into the shallow water, drank, and then stood calmly waiting for his mate and calf, while a raccoon washed off a freshly caught brook trout. Two deer stepped out of a pine grove and started to swim toward a small island covered with blueberries. Quietly we dipped our paddles in the water and continued on our way. Gilbert.

A woman that when young has the reflection of an old one, and when old works with the vigour of a young one. A woman who, if she is strong, trembles with the cry of a child, and if she is weak assumes sometimes the ferocity of a lion. A woman who, if she is ignorant, resolves the problems of life with more skill than the wise, and if she is learned, settles with simplicity the problems of those she loves. A Woman who, if she is rich, would give with joy her fortune not suffering in her heart the Wound of ingratitude. A woman while living we do not know how to appreciate because at her side all pains are forgotten, but, after her death, We would give all we are, all we have, to see her only once more, to receive only one embrace from her, and to hear only one accent from her lips. , fTranslated from the work of the Chilean author, Ramon Angel jaraj Yrarrazaval-Form V. NO ONE KNOWS 'IANLHY Pie made his living in the outlying town of Slough near London. He lived at 24 Chippendale Rd. and worked at the local Berkley's Bank as a teller. A favourite hobby of his was art, although he had told no one of his Hair. The reason for this was clear, for he had been brought up to believe that nothing he did had any great merit, that he could not think for himself, and in addition he was treated in the same way by his wife. Thus, everything he had any great success in, the meek little man with the glasses dangling on his nose didn't dare to think he had done so well. ln short, the name for the Wav he was being treated throughout his life was "henpecked". I One Saturday there was an advertisement for an expedition to Brighton on the Sea, in the London Times and Stanley Pie, bright and early the next morning gathered his paints together and joined the jovial group of holiday-makers. After having painted a picture and done all the things that one must do at such a seaside resort as Brighton, he arrived home as tired out as any man would be after such a strenuous day's exercise. That night he didn't trouble to unpack his painting equipment so it wasn't until the next morning that he discovered his painting was lost. The only place he could think of having lost it was at Paddington Station where he had changed trains. The little man didn't think of it much more as it xvasn't very good in any case. THE ASHBURIAN 101 About a month later, he visited the Tate Gallery, as one of the greatest of English painters displayed his latest works. As he walked through the great echoing halls to the room being fitted for the pur- pose, he glanced at the old pictures, and to his great surprise and amazement, what should he see amongst the works of the great masters of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries but his painting that had disappeared. How it had arrived there he had no idea, but he was sure that some mistake had been made, that someone along the line had made a slip. It was impossible that he could be a painter such as he was here made out to be for his wife herself had told him that he hadn't any great ability in anything. Thus, Stanley Pie was swept from seeming lifelong glory in a moment of decision. But even then he was reluctant to leave the matter alone without proof of his theory. So, in the waning hours of the afternoon of the following Sunday, a figure crept stealthily to the steps of the Melon Gallery, placed a canvas on the fourth step, and darted away into the ever-lengthening shadows. After that, he visited many famous London art galleries, but to no avail, his painting was not to be found. A few years later, the painting had not yet turned up and all traces of the matter had been forgotten. One day Stanley Pie, on the way home from an expedition to London, went to a fish shop in Fastcheap to buy some fish for supper. There was a sign standing on the counter that said L'Special Today Fresh Haddock 6d per pound" as he glanced at the advertisement, he noticed that on the back of the canvas was his picture-the one he had left in front of the art gallery. So this finally solved the mystery, he had proven himself right to the last, and he now wended his way homeward with satisfaction. Ten years later, on March zist, there was an obituary notice in the London Times which read as follows:- "Stanley Pie, aged 50 years, died last night in a Slough hospital. ls now resting at Williams Funeral Chapel in Eastcheap. He is survived by his wife, Anna, and two children, joseph, 18, and Elizabeth, zo." In the same paper on the second page was the following headline:- "Second Anonymous Painting Discovered in Eastcheap Fish Store". The article then continued to tell of the finding of the painting and reported several critics' theories. The last few lines ran:- "The opinion of IHOSI of the critics seems to be that at last a new aspect of painting has been discovered. Whoever the painter of the picture is if he claims the canvas, he will receive thousands. Cl certainly wish I was in that fellow's boots nowj. But where and who the author is, no one knows".

The origin of the Australian aborigine is not clearly known. It is said that they arrived from some other country millions of years ago. But there is another tribe that puzzles anthropologists-the Hfuzzie-wuzziesn of New Guinea. The puzzling thing is that there used to be a tribe of "fuzzie-wuzzies" in Tasmania also-now extinct. These two similar peoples lived with a whole continent between them-a continent that held a race completely different from themselves-the Aborigines. This separation has not been completely explained. There are many tribes of Aborigines in Australia separated only by the physical features of the land, such as mountain ranges, not by feuds or bitterness. Tribal wars were discontinued many years ago. Naturally a few quarrels break out but they are settled before mass conflict occurs. These tribes differ greatly in language with only a few words common to any two tribes. A tribe living on one side of a river may not be able to understand a tribe living on the other. Each language has almost as many conjugations and declensions as Greek, which is proof that they are not as priwzitifue as many people think. The Arunndta tribe also has a handsign language taking the place of phrases such as running up the hill." The languages are all very pretty. A few habits are different owing mainly to the weather of their whereabouts, but the main principle of life is the same in every tribe. Their only source of food is the animals they catch. They do not cultivate the land for they are often on the move. They love to eat kangaroos, snakes, goannas, and delight in munching a big, fat, juicy witchedy grub. They wear few or no clothes, and neither would any sensible person living in the climate in which they do. Since the coming of white men some have learned to wear clothes which is one of their biggest downfalls as they catch some diseases from this and may die. As the white people increased their numbers the Aborigines moved further and further back into the interior of Australia to Arnhem Land especially. As for their physical features they are as tall as the average Euro- pean, with black curly hair. The chin is protuberant, the lips thick but not protuberant, and the eyes brown and twinkling, and the face wrinkled from smiling and sunshine. Their skin is a chocolate colour, not black, and the babies are born a honey-colour. The parents indus- triously rub ashes into the skin of their babies with the belief that without this ritual their child's skin will not grow dark. Actually the THE ASHBURIAN 103 child's skin grows a dark brown under natural circumstances with- out this ritual. The character of the Abori- gines on the whole is an admirable one. They are kind, alert and physically enduring. They are al- ways bright and smiling. They will laugh at almost anything-the sun coming up, the trees swaying in the breeze, the animals that they do not kill, the children learning to hunt and many other things. They tell many beautiful legends handed down through the ages explaining the star formations, the coming of the animals and many other interesting little stories. They also hold many briefs and fears of imaginary animals and monsters such as the bunyip that will, they say, catch little children if they go out by night. The gins, as the women-folk are called, adore their children and will sacrifice many luxuries for their picaninnies, which is the name for a baby, common to all tribes. They live in camps of little bark huts when not on the move. They hold many ceremonies, the most famous one being the "corroboree". Any musical, singing, or dancing ceremony is called a corroboree. The participants in a corroboree paint designs with ochre on their bodies and then apply bird down on the front. They are always held at night and the participants mimic the noises and actions of animals before the rest of the camp who sit around in a circle watching them. A religious ceremony is called a "bora". The religious beliefs of the various tribes are different but they are all either idol worshippers or nature worshippers. Many of their myths and legends are centred around their religion. There are also many initiation ceremonies performed when a youth reaches adolescence or becomes a recognized warrior. One of these ceremonies is the "tooth-rapping" ritual. In this ceremony the patients tooth is tapped out with a pebble. This and many other, worse initiation ceremonies prove that the Aborigine can endure much pain. He is skilled in many things such as the making and throwing of boomerangs, spears and other food obtaining weapons. It is remarkable how they can get within spear throwing distance of a kangaroo when 104 THE ASHBURIAN on an open plain. The children are taught to hunt at an early age as it is their sole means of surviving in later life. VVhen living in civilized areas they come in very useful as stockmen on cattle ranches. The police also hire them for black tracking, an art in which they are particularly skilled. They are taught from infancy to distinguish the tracks of animals and to be able to follow them without leaving tracks themselves and without making a noise. They make mocassins out of emu feathers or leaves, both of which leave no track. Lately some of them have risen to great heights in the world of arts. Une example is Albert Nametjira whose paintings have won him fame and fortune. But he still likes to live with his tribe painting parts of the great country which is really his. Some of his tribesmen are copying him now and producing pictures almost as beautiful as his. Others have attained great heights in singing and have been sent to London, others are famous in the world of sports. So I end, still thinking that they are one of the most interesting races in the world. Carne, Form Shell. THE SPONGE AND WHAT IT IS HE common sponge is a familiar object yet few people know what it really is. Most people wrongfully imagine it is sort of a seaweed. But the truth is the sponge was once an animal. There are sponges of all shapes and sizes. Some are the size of a pinhead and others the size of a man. Some are fan-like, some cup-like, some tree-like, and some are basket-like. VVhen sponges were first brought into use more than a century ago, they were imported from the Red and Mediterranean Seas to the other countries of the world. But after many years of study and ex- ploration sponges were found off the north-east coast of Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. Today most of the sponge fishing is done by expert Greek divers clad in modern diving suits and carrying with them mesh bags in which to collect the gluey strong-smelling masses. After the sponges have been obtained from the ocean floor they are brought back to the harbour. From here they are sent to factories. After being dried in the sun they are roughly cleaned by hand. There is a thin skin over the sponge, and in all the pores and channels is a slimy, sticky substance which is the life matter. Sonic less experienced divers tear the sponges away from the rocks and crags with pronged forks, thus injuring the sponge. Many sponges arrive in a rough state F I fy , 1 1 J . as 6 6 .I I l li . .1-S: can-I-Lili. ' THE ASHBURIAN lui and need acid cleaning. After their bath the spongcs are run through a mangle where much of the acid is squeezed out. Then after another thorough washing the sponges are placed on racks in a warm room and left to drv. TYhen quite dry they are trimmed to a suitable shape. All jagged ends are cut with a knife. The smaller sponges are trimmed bv girls using scissors. Finally the sponges are sorted according to size, to be exported. Scott II, Form Transitus. VVAGGS LEARNS A LESSON HAVE a dog called XVaggs, who is very inquisitive. He likes to poke his nose into everything. One day we went through the wood, in the summer, where the grass was high. YYaggs saw something moving very slowly in the tall grass, and was very curious, so he ran over to poke his nose into it. I tried to call him back, but he would not come. So I ran over to him, and there I saw a porcupine curled up. XYaggs started to sniff him, then the porcupine began to thrash its tail, and quills Hew everywhere. So I grabbed a stick and hit the porcupine over its head, and it fell dead. Then I took XYaggs home and got the pincers out of the drawer and tried to pull the quills out. but XYaggs wouldn't let me-so I called my brothers to hold him while I pulled them out. I think TYaggs learned his lesson! -McCulloch III. Form II. THE TRUE STGRY OF THE LITTLE COCK-SPARROXV on Hamilton was a little boy eight years old.

So he grabbed his bow and took great aim. just as a man was walking down the path, he let go the arrow and it sailed right into the man's hat! All this, of course, warned the sparrow, so he Hew away.

"Never shoot at any creature at all," And believe me he never did either! Nlilbank-Form II-A 106 THE ASHBURIAN VVITH THE HELP OF A DOG Chapter I JIAINIIE GE'1'S CAUGHT IAINIIE and Chips were a boy and a dog. They were very good friends and they always went around together in the country near Uttawa. Jimmie lived in a little cottage, but Chips lived mostly outside the cottage in his doghouse. The cottage belonged to Jimmie's grand- mother, and sometimes she let him have friends to stay there. One day Jimmie had a friend up to the cottage to play cowboys. The boy,s name was Tom Jones. Tom knew Chips because he had often visited Jimmie before. The two boys and the dog went out into the field to play, and they were all good friends. Jim had wandered off to a corner of a Held where he could not be seen. He was perfectly contented to be alone, but just then a bad thing happened. Jimmie had tried to cross a barbed-wire fence, and he got his leg caught on one of the barbs. He was helpless, but he thanked God that his heavy cowboy chaps had saved the barbs from getting right into his flesh. He could not be heard by Tom or Chips, who were with him, because he had some dog biscuits, nor could he be heard from the cottage. lVhat was he to do? He certainly was in a bad state. Chapter II THE XVONDERFUL SENSE OF SINJIELL All at once Chips began to sniff. Then the sniffing grew to barking. Chips was after rabbits. He dashed in and out of the thickets with a rabbit right ahead of him. VVhen the rabbit played a trick on him he did not know what to do. Then Chips had a strange feeling inside him. The feeling for his master, or perhaps the feeling that something was wrong. He put his head up in the air and sniffed. He recognized the smell of his master crying. So he ran with all his might in the direction of the smell. In the meantime, Tom also had noticed the absence of his friend and he began to call and look for him but he went the wrong way, and instead of coming any nearer to Jimmie, he was walking away from him. Chips had found Jimmie in the same bad state. He tried to pull the barbs away so Jimmie could lift his leg out, but that did not work. So he started to run back. But standing right in front of him was a big brown bear. It was obvious that the bear wanted to attack! Chapter Ill THE FIGHT XVITH THE BEAR Chips was trying to run away from the bear, but the bear had got him in his arms. The struggle was going on near a railroad track, THE ASHBURI.-IN 14,7 and the whistle of a train startled the bear. and he let go of Chips. ln that very second Chips was off. lle scaiupered acrosshthe track with the bear after him. Ile was across just in time. for the train nearlv hit him. But the train Jit the bear right on the shoulder. and the 'train stopped. The engineer shooed the bear off the track. Chips was near. but he kept on running. Chips headed right for the corner of the held in which Tom was but not when he knew the wounded bear was after him. Now he was running to the cottage for he knew that Jimmie's grandmother had a gun and could shoot the bear. He reached the cottage just in time. for the bear was nearly on him again. Chips barked and barked. and the grandmother came out of the cottage and saw the bear so she got her gun and shot the bear before it was too late. And then Chips was away a a1n. g Chapter IV How JININIIE XYAs Savuu VVhen Chips reached Tom. he began to bark and pull his trouser leg in the direction of his master. :Xt first Tom did not know what Chips meant but he guessed that he wanted him to go in that direction. And so they went off to save Jimmie from the barbed-wire fence. A rabbit scampered right in front of Chips' nose but Chips did not run after it he kept right on going to save his master. In the meantime Jimmie was in the same bad state. He could not budge his leg. IYhen he saw Tom and Chips coming, he was very much happier. Tom had a little trouble in getting the leg out. His big jack- knife cut the wire, and Jimmie got his leg out. That afternoon when the whole part of the story that the boys knew had been told to Jimmie's grandmother she said, "Chips not only saved his master, but he helped to get rid of the bear who had been trampling our garden." "I-Ie's certainly a loyal dog." said Jimmie. as Chips started up and ran after a rabbit. IYoollcombe, Form Il. GREEDY JACK I-IGRNER ITTLE Jack Horner was six years old. His hair was coal black and his eyes were as blue as the sky. He was very fond of eating and the things he liked best to eat were pies, and cakes with chocolate icing. One day his mother went up town to the market. She said before she went, "Now, Jack, we are going to have a party. and I have made eleven pies for it. You must not touch them." Then she went out, got in the Ford and drove to the market. VVhile she was gone Jack said to himself. "lt will soon be lunch time and I am very hungry. I'll just take a piece of the pie that looks 108 THE ASHBURIAN the best." So he picked up a rhubarb pie. Later he ate the whole eleven. He felt less hungry then and NVCIH to his bed where he fell asleep. IIVhen his mother came home from the market she said, "VVhere are all the pies?" Then jack said, "I ate them all." "Chl" said his mother, "come into the kitchen." There she punished him. Later she had to call the doctor who came and gave jack some nasty stuff to take. Mrs. Horner, while talking to a neighbour, said, "This will teach my son not to be so greedy, I hope." And so it did. Bruce Hiney-Form Ilb MY FIRST VISIT TO THE WEST CGAST AST summer holidays I paid my first visit to the VVest Coast with my parents. I was very excited. On the morning of june 18, I had to go to school, but I did not want to do so. IVe called for Daddy at his oflice after afternoon school and found him very angry because he had lost his passport, but he found it in his overcoat pocket. IVe all got into the car and on the way to Peterborough Mummy saw a groundhog and Daddy saw a hare. XVe stayed the night at a little place near Peterborough. I woke with a start and found it was daylight, so I leapt out of bed and got dressed and woke Mummy and Daddy. VVe had breakfast and drove on to Peterborough where Daddy took me to see the news- paper being printed. This was very interesting. VVe then drove on, and after a while we stopped for lunch at a place near Port Nicholas. IVhile walking in a field after lunch Daddy saw a huge jack rabbit, then we motored on to Port Nicholas and got on the boat for the next part of our journey. The next morning when I woke I saw the broad waters of Lake Huron all around us. XYe played around on deck until about midday, when we called at a small port to put off and pick up some passengers. After lunch we passed through Sault Ste. Marie which was very interesting seeing the locks and canal. Next morning we arrived at Fort IYilliam. We left the boat and got into the car again for the next part of our journey. IYe crossed the boarder into the USA. and motored to Duluth where we spent the night. THE ASHBURI.-IN 10" The next part of the journey was across the prairie, which was interesting to see, but very tiring as it was all the same-miles and miles of Hat land covered with grain. Then we arrived at an Indian reserve in Montana. lVe stayed the night near Xledicine Lake in Glacier National Park and then went on to Banff. where we stayed for a day or two. lVe lished in a stream after being taken by a ferry which dragged our canoe behind it. XVe had gone about a mile up the river when we saw a wonderful sight. It was a moose-a lovely lady moose sitting in a bed of roses on the river bank. About half a mile further we saw and heard a bull moose trumpeting. Then we saw a huge band of elk led by a bull elk. They suddenly turned and Hed because they were afraid of the moose. The next exciting thing we did was to see the Stampede at Calgary. XVe saw the Bucking Bronchoes and all the Cowboys in their fancy clothes and Ranch colours. It was very exciting to see about ten of the cowboys turned out into the field to try and lasso about thirty steers. Then we saw them catching calves and tying them up as they do when they brand them. Some of the cowboys who rode the bucking bulls must have had life insurance I think. One of them had two horses and stood with one foot on each horse and jumped over a car. There were so many excit- ing things but I cannot tell you it all. I can only tell you about the wonderful evening show with Chuk waggon races and a brilliant dis- play of fireworks which lit up the sky. Our next move was to motor down to Vancouver. get on the ship and cross to Victoria on Vancouver Island. IVe spent a week at a lovely bay just outside Victoria where we swam and lished. One night we got the equipment to go salmon fishing. XVe got a boat and Daddy was lucky. I-Ie caught a fourteen pound salmon. A few days later we motored to Nanaimo where we got on the ship "Nanaimo" and went to Vancouver. From there we went for a few davs to a wheat farm in IVashington where I learned to drive a tractor.. Our next place of call was Yellowstone National Park. lVe motored straight to Old Faithful. the wonderful geyser which spouts every hour. It was a beautiful sight to see the white smoky spray mixed with the blue skv and the white clouds and the bright sun shining through it all. I met a very interesting Indian Chief called Black Eagle dressed in full war paint and his eagle plumes were glorious to see. He told me that his grandfather. who is still alive fought in the massacre of Custer. 110 THE ASI-IBURIAN We continued by Lake Michigan and Niagara Falls where we went on the Maid of the Mist right through the spray from the falls and into some ,tunnels where we could see the water pouring down in front of us. Then we continued our journey to Ottawa and arrived home after six weeks' wonderful trip. This summer I am going just about as far in the other direction. I am going to England as soon as school closes and I am sure that will be just as exciting. I hope to see Rahul Khushwant Singh who was in Form I last year.

THE .-ISHBURI.-IN 113 THE RIDING CLUB GAIN, for a second year. xve have had a Riding Club at Ashbury. Due to its popularity classes have been restricted to boys fourteen years and under, and even though Saturday morning detention has threatened to deplete our ranks, very good turnouts have been made. We have a very able instructor, Sergeant Klargetts, formerly of the .ith Hussars and the R.C.Xl.P. Without his help and his horses little would have been accomplished. This year we have been fortunate in receiving txvo prizes. One donated by Commander and Xlrs. NY. G. Ross and the other by Xlrs. C. L. Ogden Glass. We plan to have a show at Klargetts' Stables on june 8th when these prizes will be presented to the best all-round rider and the IIIOSI improved rider, respectively. Our Saturday morning rides would have been impossible without the help of Colonel G. Brine who gave unstintinglv of his time to make this year a great success.
