THE ASHBURIAN 9
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.
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.

lent music and refreshments the events

On All HalloW's Eve the School
was given a rare treat in one of Mr.
Oliver's all too infrequent ventrilo-

refreshments served, and a thoroughly
enjoyable evening was had by all..
Many thanks are due those who
planned and ran the event.

first term was football night. Although

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.

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

Captain R. MacNeil with several senior N.C.O.'s marched with a pre-
cision of which the School may well be proud.
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
The Debating Society held two meetings of note, the first of which

At the second meeting the topic for discussion was: should formal
examinations be abolished. The motion was carried.

talent uncovered for future years.

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
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
Thus we end a prosperous year, a gainful year, a happy year, but
more important still-another year. R. XlacN.

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

On November 28, the First Sunday in Advent, our Chaplain went
out to All Saints' Church in XYestboro, while their rector, the Reverend

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
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.

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

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

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,
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
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
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.

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,
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.
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
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.
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
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-
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. NlacRae and cohorts soon showed
our kind hosts, Nlr. and Nlrs. XYood, how bracing the Nlontebello air
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
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.
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-
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.

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
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
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.

I xg TEAM
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.

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.

quite early in the season. XYith Larry XYood winning both slalom and

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,
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.

The only other team competition in the season was the Eastern
Canadian Interscholastic Championships, in which Ashbury entered a
team in the junior division. 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

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
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

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.

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

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. The 880 yard relay race composed of Bryce, Darby,
Cavadias and Yates, gaining a substantial lead through the efforts of
lead-off man Bob Bryce, won the event by a fair margin. Bob Bryce
'lbroad-jumped" his way to first place with a sixteen foot nine inch
leap. Final score-Ashbury 34, Sedbergh 17.
All in all it was a friendly. entertaining day with the teams being
feted with tea and cookies in the Old Boys' Lounge before the drive
back to Ashbury.
THE ASHBURIAN 4?
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

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

The Chairman of the Science Club this session has been Robin

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.

THE ASHBURIAN 45
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
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
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
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.

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
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. Second innings,
B.C.S. 82 for 8, Ashbury 45 Call outj.

S4 THE ASHBURIAN
ASHBURY vs. TI-IE STAFF
May 24, 1949
N pre-game Chatter the Staff XI were strongly favoured to win this
match. as last year's formidable team remained unimpaired and had,
indeed, been augmented by the services of Mr. XV. A. Edge, a batsman
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.
Final score: Ashbury Q43 Staff 73.

THE ASHBURI.-LN' 55
ASHBURY FIRST Xl vs. OLD BOYS
Klay 28, 1949
Rrzviws won the toss and elected to bat but was unfortunate in not
finding any of his team mates to stay at the wicket with him. lnle
compiled 32 runs in a very steady fashion, mostly on well-judged
singles, but as none of the other school batsmen reached double figures
the side was all out for 70. 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.

56 THE ASHBURIAN
B.C.S. 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
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.
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.

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 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.

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

to the late Colonel F. Newcombe, his predecessor who died this
year, Mr. Machfavish called upon the Headmaster to give his annual

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
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
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,

accommodating themselves to unfamiliar customs and manners: in such
circumstances they would have only the resources which they had built

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,

64 THE ASHBURIAN
JUNE QTH, 1949
Your Excellencies, Mr. Ciairman, Mr. Headmaster, Ladies and Gentle-
'r swims only yesterday that I came to Ashbury, and now I am leaving.
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.

DREYFUS-"1 have here a black penn
Snake is doing a wonderful job as head boy. 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.

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.

THE ASHBURIAN 1,7
FO R M N OTE S
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
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. Claims his chosen profession is not
digging ditches. Costie was captain of the znd hockey and cricket teams
and chief of the sigs in the cadet corps. He is a notorious member of
'Common Room Bridge, lnc.'
Price-Scott's idea of heaven is a place of superhighways and con-
vertibles as far as the eye can see. ls vice-captain of skiing and captain
of football. Any Weekend he could be seen on the slopes of Camp

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
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. Bill played first football and hockey this year, to the delight
of all the local girls. His pastime is being funny.
THE .-ISHBURI.-IN ffl
C.-XSTLLLO-Captain of the Boarders, and of Connaught llousc, our
"Cas" played first-string middle for the rugby team this year and
proved to be a dangerous man to look in the eye. llc is the
obvious choice for number one slot among the better dressed
students of the school.
CLARK-"Hill" is the Mad Malartic Miner. He was vice-captain and
Left Fullback of the soccer team and could be counted on to hoof
anything in sight out of sight, Remove soccer players not excepted.
CULLXYICK-Bob played for the second rugby team and was one of
the fastest men on the field. He has an agreeable knack of having
his prep done ffor his betters by his equalsb.
DARBY-"Bib" was a standout for the first rugby and hockey teams,
being captain of the latter. XYe are pleased to be able to tell him
that he is our choice for Ottawa's next Chief of Police.
FERGUSON-"Fergy" is one of the students of the form and we fully
expect him to be recommended. However, at this date all he can
do is radiate sweetness and light-easy for him considering his form
marks. An enthusiastic vice-captain of commuters.
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.
JOHNSON-Dave proved to be a never-failing source of fun, on or off
the field, in or out of class, up and down the top fiat. The john-
son Crop. however, proved to be a short lived fashion but demon-
strated how pointed a head vou can get.
LANGEVIN-Pierre was in the second rugby team again this vear.
and has also been playing in the first cricket eleven. From any
angle, it is easv to see him as a huge success.
PRITCHARD-A strong silent man, .-Xndy was an outstandingly
speedy back for the first rugby field and right wing in the first
hockev team. He even seemed to have plenty of speed left over
for reporting out Fridays.
SETTON-"Tobv" took an active part in the dramatics class this year.
Not satisfied with being captain of his room. he acts as full-time
70 THE ASI-IBURIAN
hall porter, night watchman, janitor, bouncer, interpreter, decora-
tor, and bloodhound. Many a baleful stare greets any English-
speaking foreign devils who would enter Room 17.
URBANOXYICZ-"L'rby" comes from behind the Iron Curtain, and
he seems to have dragged some of it away sticking to his chin.
After Chopin, language is his forte, both usually fortissimo.
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. His position is this, "School is all very well for
some of the people some of the time but include me out". lt's the
principle of the thing.
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. He also
Hnds time to keep abreast of his studies and is thus an all-rounder

he follows the sports columns he is more likely to be a sports
writer. He is also a Room Captain.

hockey for the first field, and is izth man on the first eleven
cricket. Baldy is an industrious but slow worker, and he has hopes

occupied his time catching bugs up North, and so he has decided

pended early in the fall of 1948, has decided to open up a school

Speaking Prize in his class for the past three years.

for nine years and has yet not decided on a future career.
PHILLIP H. SMITH-"Flip" played second team Rugby this fall, and
ski-ed during the winter. This term he is the scorer for the second

est in the class, and is becoming quite a ladies man. He has
ambitions to get into the Navy.
ALBERTO SUAREZ-Hails from Bogota, Colombia, and is our most
recently arrived member of the form. Alberto is a good fellow,

go to University next year in the United States. He is a member
of the Tennis squad this spring.

book which makes him very popular as an authority on the subject.
We hear he intends to rent it out at 31.00 per hour.

table, he turned up a little before Christmas and has been active
ever since. He is well known for his distaste for work and love

more in the school, with the welcome addition of many new names to

THE :ISI-lBURIf1.N' il
MR. saaasriigx v1siTs THE Baalaiia sHoP
R. 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.

Beyond the towers that lift their backs

Of colour flushing to the cheeks of Earth,
A Catskin mantle for her frozen limbs.

Of its uncharted blue. Its answer was

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-
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

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
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.

before a mirror, admiring itself, while cogs and gears meshed smoothly

are pleased to call a laboratory. Don't you know who I am?,', he

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-

"Eactly, dope. Now start thinking of an answer. You have five

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,

"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.

"Are you beautiful?"
"More than I ever dreamed".
"IYhy did I create you?" No answer. He licked his lips and tried
"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.

SAMUEL DE CHANIPL.-XIN -FATHER OF
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
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-
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
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.

OBSERVE AND CONSERVE
N RECENT years there has been a wide awakening of interest in natural
history, particularly in that branch which deals with birds and their
habits. 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
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.

THE STORY OF AGRICULTURE
GRICULTURE is the oldest of all occupations. "The first farmer",
says Emerson, "was the first man".
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

The prevention of disease is an essential part of agriculture. The

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
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.
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

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
These tribes did so much harm to the japanese that the Allies were

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
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
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
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.

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

PORTRAITS OF MY MOTHER
ERE is a woman who has something of God through her great
love and much of an angel through her constant care.
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.

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
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". 'M Carver. Form Shell.
102 THE ASI-IBURIAN
His is the story of the world's oldest race-natives of the world's
oldest country-the Aborigines of Australia. 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
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
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
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

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
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

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
Finally the sponges are sorted according to size, to be exported.

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!

VVITH THE HELP OF A DOG
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.
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!
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,

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

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.

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

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-

place near Port Nicholas. IVhile walking in a field after lunch Daddy

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
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. Vincent.-Form I

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. I.G.S.
