Boyd 8 THE ASHBURIAN EDITORIAL THIS IS the second time in the space of five years that an issue of The Ashburian has been dedicated to C. L. Ogden Glass, Head- master of Ashbury College. On the first occasion, in 1945, we welcomed him to the school. On this occasion we announce with profound regret that he is leaving Ashbury to assume the headmastership of Bishop ' s College School Lennoxville. It is difficult to express adequately just how sorry we are to lose him, and how much we appreciate all he has done for us while here. His untiring work has added substantially to the stature of Ashbury, both materially and academically, and the many changes he introduced were not merely changes, but, as we think, improvements. We feel, too, that these improvements were but a tithe of those he had devised and which awaited only the ripeness of the hour and of the opportunity. But perhaps even more important than this, more important than his ability to plan the ways and means and to implement them, was the genuine, heartfelt affection which he inspired in both Boys and Staff. Perhaps it will be chiefly for this that he will be remem- bered by all of us in the years to come. In spite of his high record at School, at University, and in the Navy, we were not altogether prepared for the rare versatility which so well equipped him for his job here. The demands of the office of headmaster are exacting, and require unusual adaptabihty in one who is to fulfil it to perfection. This we think he did. His discipline was always vigorous, but tempered always with humour and grace. He showed strength without arrogance, sympathy without sentimentality, diplomacy without weakness, scholarship without pedantry. These elements, however rare in their confiuency, so mixed in him. . . . Although we cannot help but selfishly deplore his going, all here can understand the considerations which led to his decision; he is returning to his old school, which he has known both as pupil and master. We send with him our gratitude, and our best wishes in the success of which he is assured. THE ASHBURIAN 9 SCHOOL NOTES Opening Day ON THE morning of Wednesday, September 14th, many Ashburians probably awoke with a feeUng of emptiness in the pits of their stomachs. The reason was simple. Another summer holiday had rolled away and the School ' s Official Opening was at hand. Still, this feehng had apparently disappeared by the time everyone gathered for Assembly at nine o ' clock that morning, for it was good to see the old familiar faces again. A little later, the Headmaster gave his Opening Address, in which he welcomed to the school our new master, Mr. PhiUip Lee, B.A. who had replaced Mr. Edge. He also expressed a welcome to the thirty-seven new boys, and hoped that they would enjoy a prosperous year at Ashbury. Following this, Mr. Glass stressed the importance of work as well as of good behaviour and manners, and a hope for less need of punishment throughout the year. We were all pleased when Mr. Glass announced that our Cadet Corps had won the Captain Findlay Trophy, awarded for the most proficient corps in Eastern Ontario. The cup was presented to Cadet Adjutant Heney in the absence of Robin MacNeil, our Commanding Officer for last year. During the summer, much work had been done on the improvement of the premises, including the installation of one hundred and eighty new metal lockers— a great improvement over the old wooden variety. A great deal of painting and redecoration had also been done, particularly in the Senior Common Room, as well as in the class rooms and dormitories. Following the Assembly came the Opening Chapel Service, in which our dry throats once more responded to the School Hymn and " Lord Behold us with Thy Blessing . . However, this latter did not receive quite the emphasis which the companion hymn " Lord dismiss us . . . " enjoys at the end of term. 10 THE ASHBURIAN So, as we settled back in our beds that night, I think all of us were looking forward expectantly to the prospect of another year at Ashbury. Entertainment During this school year our level of entertainment held to its usual standard, for we can look back on many worthwhile, educational, and interesting incidents, which, sprinkled through the three terms, afford a welcome " break " to the steady routine of everyday life. These activities are of two types: those which are included in the school program, such as the house dances, the formal parties at the end of term, and week-end movies in the Assembly Hall; and those which come more or less unexpectedly, for example lectures from outside speakers, and the occasional musical concert or play down-town. Everyone who went certainly enjoyed the House Dances this year. Toby Setton, on several occasions, was successful in inspiring the Latin-American rhythm and movement into the participants by his skillful leading and manipulation of " Conga-Lines " , and the refresh- ments were of the usual high quahty. May our thanks be expressed here to Air. and Mrs. Brain and Mv. Belcher, who so kindly played the role of hosts and hostess, at these dances. At our Christmas party, concluding the fall term, we were par- ticularly pleased with the presentation of Mr. Thomas ' Temple Choir who gave a splendid program. On this occasion we also saw coloured movies of the Montreal-Calgary football play-off, and following this, John Gill and Don Eraser treated us to an excellent piano-trumpet duet, in full forte. THE ASHBURIAN 11 Again we gratefully thank Mr. Sibley and his assistants for the work they have done in maintaining our motion picture performances. From the mixture of ordinary and scientific films we have derived both pleasure and knowledge. Entertainment for the parents was held on two occasions this year in the form of the " Parents Reception " . Dietetics This year, as in the past, Miss Burrough has done a rare job in the kitchen, (no pun here), and nearly everyone remarks that he has " gained weight since the start of term " . Health This unrivalled necessity to happy living got an upset near Easter, when a minor epidemic of mumps broke loose. Many missed their examinations to recuperate just in time for the holidays, (as in our case— Editor), but normal routine was not affected. Miss MacLaughlin and iMrs. Row are to be congratulated for their unceasing hard work and efficiency during this trying time. Considering our health record all along however, one may well appreciate the quotation from the Right Honourable Lord Avebury, who said in reference to the health of the human body: ' ' Strange that a harp of a thousand strings Should keep in tune so long 12 THE ASHBURIAN Clubs Again this year our clubs met to provide much pleasurable enjoy- ment for the members. Mr. Sibley ' s Science Club brought us interest- ing outside speakers and a trip to the Crime Detection Laboratories of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Mr. Powell started the organiza- tion of a Camera Club, but this did not get under way, due to lack of time and difficulty of obtaining equipment. The International Rela- tions Club under Mr. Polk, the Debating Club under Mr. Drayton and the Cercle Frangais with Mr. Brain enjoyed successful meetings. An independent club featuring hypnotism, psychology, and psychical research, under the direction of John MacCordick sprang up later in the year, as an aid to helping students learn memory work, but was immediately abandoned, for the sake of safety. An orchestra consisting of piano, two piano-accordions, trumpet, trombone and flute has re- cently become well enough established in the school to fill its halls with reverberating discords anytime between 9:15 and 10:00 every night; but who knows? someday it may be a source of music for the spring Formal. So another school year terminates. We feel it has been happy and successful, and that it has helped to inspire us with hope and courage in looking forward to the years that are yet to come. 14 THE ASHBURIAN CHAPEL NOTES THE Chapel played its usual full role in the life of the school— week- day morning and evening prayers and matins and evensong on Sundays. The custom was continued this year of celebrating Holy Com- munion on the first Sunday in each month. The Chaplain, in addition to his usual offices, gave a series of talks on Wednesday mornings during Lent. Senior members of the staff addressed the school on the following occasions: — October 16— Mr. Brain January 22— Mr. Belcher April 30-Col. Brine We were also glad to welcome the following visitors: — October 23— Canon G. P. W oollcombe, The Founder November 8— The Rev. Terrence Finlay January 20— Canon Bertal Heney February 12— D. R. Thomas, Esq. May 21— D. K. iMacTavish, Esq., Chairman of our Board of Governors. The Armistice Day Service was conducted by the Chaplain. Lessons were read by D. K. A4acTavish, Esq., and by Captain G. WooUcombe, acting for the President of the Old Boys ' Association. The Roll of Honour was read by the Headmaster. On the last Sunday evening of the Michaelmas term, a Carol Ser- vice was held. The Chapel was Ht by 160 candles. The choir and the soloists were trained by A4r. Sibley, L.Mus., the chapel organist. The school paid their usual visits to St. Bartholemew ' s and Christ Church Cathedral in the Michaelmas and Lent terms respectively. In the Trinity term, the Cadet Corps paraded with the Governor General ' s Foot Guards to Christ Church Cathedral. The service was conducted by the Reverend L. Graham of the Cathedral staff, assisted by the School Chaplain. The sermon was preached by the Reverend W. D. M. Christie, Chaplain of the Guards; Lessons were read by the Com- manding Officers of the two units. We are all sorry that owing to the prolonged illness of Bishop Jefferson, the Confirmation Service had to be cancelled this year. The efficient running of the Chapel was largely due to the in- terested co-operation of the Chapel Clerks, Donald Lyon and Allan McCuUoch with the Chaplain and Organist. THE ASHBURIAN 15 DuNCAN K. iMacTavish Duncan K. AdacTavish, O.B.E., K.C., chairman of the board of governors of Ashbury, has just completed his first year of office. In that time Mr. MacTavish has shown a keen interest in the affairs of the school and never failed to give us the advantage of his wide experience and liberal culture. The school has prospered in the short time that Mr. MacTavish has been its president and we feel confident that Ashbury will achieve even greater stature under his continued leadership. 16 THE ASHBURIAN THE SCIENCE CLUB THE Science Club has held two formal meetings this year. The first meeting held on October 28th was a trip made to the Criminal Investigation Laboratories of the R.C.M.P. in RockchfTe. A group of 40 Senior School boys arrived at the Laboratories at 8:00 p.m., and under the supervision of Sergeant J. W. Sutherland and his staff, the large group was divided into 3 smaller ones. The students were then conducted on a tour of the Laboratories, each department head explaining his particular type of work and illustrating it. The three general departments consisted of the Photography and Philatelic, the Firearms, and the Chemical. At 10:00 p.m. the all too short evening came to a close, and the students returned to school after a most en- joyable evening. The second meeting was held on January 13 th and took place in the Assembly Hall. The speakers on this occasion were: Squadron Leader T. G. Anderson, A.F.C. who spoke on " Jet Engines " , and Mr. Dodds, the Director of Public Relations of the R.C.A.F. who spoke on " Photo-Surveying " . The speakers were introduced by H. S. Price and C. Hart. At this meeting we were also fortunate in having two R.C.A.F. films entitled " Jet Engines " and " Photo-Canada " . On Friday, February 3rd a group of the Science Club were in- vited to the Annual Student Night of the Chemical Institute of Canada. Mr. Garnet Page, M.C.I.C., the General Manager of the Institute, out- fined briefly the careers open in the chemical field in Canada. He was followed by the main speaker of the evening, Mr. J. D. Converse, the Manager of the Chemicals Division of Canadian Industries Limited. In well-chosen words, A4r. Converse reviewed the growth and develop- ment of chemical industry in Canada, described how seemingly un- surmountable difliculties have been overcome, and discussed new methods and processes. He particularly mentioned the new methods being tested for the manufacture of sulphite pulp. A coloured motion picture, " Harnessing the Rainbow " , describing the development and use of modern dyes, was also shown. On Sunday evenings, as usual after Chapel, many science films have been sh own. Our thanks are due to many companies who have provided us with such fine films, among these being: The National Film Board; The Canadian Westinghouse Co. Ltd.; The Canadian General Electric Co.; the Minneapolis-Honeywell Regulator Co. Ltd.; Canadian Industries Limited. The Chairman of the Science Club this year has been Walter Sudar, who has conducted the afiPairs of the club in an efficient manner. L.H.S. THE ASH BU Rl AN 17 THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB At eight o ' clock on the evening of Friday, January 20, the Honor- X able Christopher Hart, Speaker of the Ashbury House of Com- mons, walked into the chamber, followed by Sergeant-at-Arms Scott Price. The House was in session. This was the climax of several days ' activity and many notices on the school boards. The Government, headed by Prime A4inister J. M. Fraser, had many important bills to introduce, all of which the opposition, headed by Walter Sudar, opposed vigorously. First, the A4inister of Recon- struction and Supply, Mr. Gilbert, brought in a bill which would add several useful pieces of equipment to the school. The Minister of Indian Affairs— Mr. D. Fraser introduced a bill for the construction of a Junior Butt Room, for candy, cigarettes, etc., and Mr. Dalrymple, Minister of Health, brought in a bill for chocolate flavoured milk of magnesia. All these were passed. Two other bills, Mr. Hall ' s Equal Rights Bill (Justice Dept.) and Mr. J. Eraser ' s Distribution of A4arks Bill (Education? Dept.) were ruled defeated in a voice vote by the speaker; there was no time for a counted vote. Then came the private bills. They were of all sorts by Opposition members, and were not opposed, on principle, by the government. One of them, proposed by A4r. Genesove, resulted in a rare united front of the two parties to defeat it. It was to propose educational reform (compulsory German, hours from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., no talking, prefects having caning privileges and many similar ideas). In the course of his speech, Mr. Genesove had to be ' named ' for unparliamentary conduct. The house adjourned so that the junior school page boys could retire, and it was the end of a most enjoyable evening. Many thanks to Mr. Polk and A4r. Belford, as well as to all the others who helped in the organization. THE DEBATING CLUB Although the big debate with B.C.S. never came off, the debating jfX, club had an active year. On December 2, the club had its first meeting, in which the subject under consideration was a motion pro- posed by Genesove to legalize mercy killing or Euthanasia. With Genesove on the affirmative were Grimsdale and Younger I, while Scott I, Busk and Fraser I opposed the motion. After the formal debate, there was some discussion of the matter from the floor— the motion was not carried. 18 THE ASHBURIAN On January 6th, the club met again to discuss a motion for the disposal of the Canadian Merchant Aiarine. Since the last meeting, Mr. Belcher had found himself unable to carry on in charge, and Mr. Drayton had taken over. The motion was carried. It had been planned to have a debate against B.C.S. on March 5 and Ashbury was to have carried the negative end of a motion resolving that: " the election of a Socialist Government in Canada would be a national disaster " . Unfortunately, however, the epidemic of mumps at the school made necessary the indefinite postponement of the debate. Better luck next year! THE POETRY READING CONTEST THIS year marked the commencement of annual poetry reading contests at Ashbury College. It is a welcome innovation and offers wonderful training for those that are concerned. The com- petition was held in the chapel, and the number of entries gave evidence of the students ' interest. Mr. Drayton convened the contest and was the moving spirit responsible for its inception. It was through him also that we were fortunate enough to have Professor Edinborough of Queen ' s University as our adjudicator. Being the assistant professor of English at Queens, he was more than qualified for the position. To adjudicate any type of competition is a difficult task at any time, but Professor Edinborough made wise and popular decisions in choosing Pierre Langevin and Alex Urbanowicz as the leading Seniors, in first and second positions respectively. John Hutchison and Geoffrey Carne tied for the leadership of the Intermediate Class, and Stephen Woollcombe was second. Mr. Drayton deserves the appreciation of the school for his un- selfish work which made the contest possible and it is the hope of The Ashburian that future competitions will be as successful. TUE ASUDUQIAN 20 THE ASHBURIAN FIRST FIELD RUGBY Commerce 0 Ashbury 19 L.C.C. 17 Ashbury 12 1st Bishops 1 Ashbury 6 Stanstead 6 Ashbury 21 2nd Bishops 5-- Ashbury 12 Old Boys 0 Ashbury 12 Lisgar 12 Ashbury 12 Lindenlea 11 Ashbury 11 FIRST FIELD SECOND TEAAl 1st Fisher Park High School 0 Ashbury 6 2nd Fisher Park High School 0 Ashbury 16 THE ASHBURIAN 21 FIRST FIELD RUGBY TEAM WITH ALL but half a dozen of last year ' s first field still with us, we had every reason to look forward to a successful football season in 1949, and, indeed, our hopes were to a very large degree fulfilled— as may be seen by the following accounts of the games. The record of the season ' s play for the First Rugby Team stands as follows: of the eight games played, we lost one, drew two, and won five. As a result of our double win against Bishop ' s College School, Ashbury came once more into possession of The Ashbury Old Boys ' Cup, a trophy put up for competition between the two schools. ASHBURY vs HIGH SCHOOL OF COMMERCE SPARKED BY a smooth running backfield and a not-to-be-beaten line, the Ashbury 1st team romped over Commerce to the tune of 19-0. The whole Ashbury team moved as a single man and Com- merce was unable to cope with the situation. Charging over the line in the first quarter, middle Don Lyon, picked up a fumbled ball and accounted for the opening touch. The attempted convert was wide of the mark, but Pritchard soon evened that up when he kicked a placement goal from the thirty-five yard line. Going over from three yards out, Don Brown, the Ashbury quarter, chalked up another five points, and this time Larry Wood, end, gained the extra point by snagging a pass from Pritchard. The third quarter found Commerce making their one real threat, but quick work on the part of Harry Brouse recovered a fumble and set the ball rolling once more for Ashbury. Andy Pritchard took a long lateral from Scott Price in the fourth quarter and romped 40 yards through the Commerce backfield for the final score in the game. The Commerce team played well and tried hard, but they just couldn ' t seem to get under way in this opening tussle. Much credit is due to a staunch Ashbury line. They indeed may be congratulated for a fine showing on their opening game of the season. FIRST BISHOP ' S GAME ON October 1st a high spirited Ashbury team defeated a hard fighting squad from Bishop ' s College School at Lennoxville, to the tune of 6-1. In the first quarter, McGee, centre for B.C.S. kicked a field goal from the 2 5 -yard line. From then on until the third quarter both teams battled back and forth, neither one being able to reach pay dirt terri- tory. THE FIRSr FOOTBALL LEAM First row — left to right: Brown, Price, Darby (Captain), Gill I, Gill II Second row: Wood, Sudar, Hart I, Brouse I, Lee, Lyon, A4clnnes Third row. Setton, Burke, Gutierrez, Kerr I, McCulloch I Rear row: Mr, Glass, Baldwin, Bryce, Artola, Aiaclaren, Cherrier, Vandervoort, Graham I, Pritchard, Wells I, Capt. Higgs At the be ginning of the second half Ashbury settled down to take three first downs and put Andy Pritchard in position to kick a thirty-eight yard field goal. Darby and Price did the plunging and passing that made this point possible. In the fourth quarter Scott Price threw a pass to Larry Wood, who was over the goal-line, for the only major of the game. The convert was just a little wide of the bar. Both teams played good football, and they were very evenly matched. Credit is certainly due to a fast Ashbury backfield and also to a hard charging line. ASHBURY vs LOWER CANADA COLLEGE I THINK IT may truthfully be said that in this tussle, Ashbury 1st twelve played the better game all the way. In the first quarter a series of plunges and short snappy passes carried Ashbury from their own 30-yard Hne to the L.C.C. 5. Darby smashed over right tackle to chalk up the first major in the game, THE ASHBURIAN 23 but the attempted convert went wide. Lower Canada then turned the tables, and, after using much the same strategy, carried over a major. They kicked the convert. At the start of the second quarter Ashbury got off to a bad start as one of the catching halfs fumbled the L.C.C. kick-off. An alert L.C.C. end picked up the loose ball and stepped over the line. L.C.C. tried to convert by a pass, but it was knocked down. Then Ashbury began to drive, and, when finally forced to kick, Andy Pritchard laced the pigskin 45 yards for a single. In the third quarter Ashbury again drove down the field, with Pritchard plunging most of the way. Bib Darby slammed over right tackle again for the major, and Scott Price converted via the drop- kick method. The final quarter started much the same as did the second. A fumble on the kick-off, and L.C.C. was set up for their final touch- down. This one was converted, making the final score 17-12 in favour of L.C.C. And thus Ashbury lost her first and last game of the season. The boys played well, however, and fought from the opening whistle until the gun. With three of her best players injured. Bib Darby, a con- cussion; Hec Mclnnes, a broken nose; and Don Lyon, three broken ribs; Ashbury may be congratulated on fighting as she did. SECOND BISHOP ' S GAME ON October 22nd Ashbury Seniors took their second straight victory over Bishop ' s College School to the tune of 12-5, and thus regained possession of the Old Boys ' Cup which they lost (last) four seasons ago. Ashbury struck for their first major midway through the first quarter after Bob Da rby ' s plunging and Andy Pritchard ' s end runs had taken the play from mid-field to the Bishop 15 -yard line. Scott Price climaxed the drive by heaving a short forward to John Gill for the score. Scott then earned the extra point via the drop-kick method. Bishop ' s started to drive in the second stanza and Giles scored the only Bishop score after three trips round the Ashbury left end on a reverse. Harry Brouse and Al A4cCulloch smashed through to block the convert. In the final quarter of the game Evan Gill leaped to intercept a B.C.S. pass and raced with it from the 40 to the Bishop 5-yard fine. Bib Darby went over centre on the next play to get the touch and again Scott Price ' s toe, hoofed the extra point. 24 THE ASHBURIAN ASHBURY vs LISGAR ON November 9th, our First Team tied Lisgar Seniors at 12-12. The Ashbury first twelve completely out-played their shghtly heavier opponents in the first quarter, and when the teams changed ends the home team was 7-1 in the lead. Pritchard kicked a single from the thirty-five in the first few minutes of play. The count went up to seven when Scott Price went over for a major from the five and then booted the convert by a drop-kick. In the second stanza Paul Hudson put the Lisgarites back in the ball game when he intercepted an Ashbury pass on the latter ' s 2 5 -yard stripe and ran for a touchdown, which he converted. Near the end of the quarter he hoofed a placement from the Ashbury 15 to put Lisgar in the lead, 9-7. However, John Gill scored on a double reverse from five yards out to give Ashbury a 12-9 lead, but this score was cancelled soon after, when Hudson again connected with a placement, to tie up the ball game, 12-12. ASHBURY vs LINDENLEA Ashbury and Lindenlea played to an eleven all tie in a supposed jCjl. " easy-win " for Ashbury. A good stroke of luck befell the Linden- lea squad in the last minute of play but it certainly gave the Ashbury twelve a bitter pill to swallow. The first quarter opened with Ashbury driving down to their opponents fifteen-yard line when Hector A4clnnes swung round the right end for the first major. The attempted convert failed and Linden- lea took possession from the kick-off. Sparked by Bob Juneau, the Lindenlea group slowly pushed Ashbury back and Juneau finally took the ball over on a plunge over centre. In the second quarter the two teams fought it out in centre field until Ashbury manoeuvred into a thirty-five yard single from Andy Pritchard ' s boot. The third quarter saw Ashbury driving down the field with a 6-5 point margin. Goaded on by Andy Pritchard the ball was carried to the Lindenlea fifteen. Pritchard rammed over right middle, to make the score read 11-5, in favour of Ashbury. The fourth quarter started much the same as the second. It stayed that way until the one-minute flag was up. Then it happened. Lindenlea had possession of the ball on their own forty-yard line. Juneau took the ball from the centre and faded back, looking for a receiver. The ends hesitated and then went in after him, but they were too late. THE ASH B U RI AN 25 The ball shot forward, over the heads of the secondary and tertiary and settled into the hands of a Lindenlea end who proceeded to gallop some sixty yards for a touchdown. Lindenlea converted to make the final score 11-11. A disappointed team left the field and a disappointed coach kicked the bucket. ASHBURY vs STANSTEAD THE Ashbury 1st twelve walked over a weaker Stanstead squad to the tune of 21-6. The game, played on Ashbury ' s home-field, proved a one-sided game from the start. John Gill scored his first touchdown on a twenty-yard pass from Scott Price. The convert was blocked. Stanstead was unable to re- taliate, and Ashbury stayed in the Stanstead zone for the rest of the quarter. In the second quarter Andy Pritchard raced around the right end for a 2 5 -yard gain and a touchdown. A few minutes later Scott Price went over again, on a quarterback sneak from the 5 -yard line. Neither of these scores was converted. The third quarter saw no score, and both teams fought back and forth at centre field. As the final quarter got under way Pritchard threw a 40-yard pass to John Gill who took it in the clear and ran a few yards for his second major in the game. Don Brown booted the extra point totalling Ashbury with 21. Stanstead now started closing the distance to the Ashbury line by a number of plunges. Finally LeBerne, a halfback from Stanstead, carried the oval over for Stanstead ' s only major. LeBerne also kicked a placement for the extra point. The Stanstead crew fought clean and hard but they proved no match for their faster, harder-hitting opponents. OLD BOYS vs ASHBURY THIS game, lacking in formality and strained friendship, as it did, proved a source of humour to all spectators and to both benches. Needless to say, the Old Boys lost 12-0 but there may have been a few bad moments on the Ashbury bench. The first half of the tussle proved scoreless as both teams see- sawed back and forth and succeeded in nothing save getting each other ' s signals mixed. In the third quarter, however, Ashbury found herself, and after plunging down to the Old Boys ' 5-yard line. Price went over on a quarterback sneak. Scott also converted it by a drop-kick. 26 THE ASHBURIAN The final quarter started in much the same way and ended up by Don Brown scoring for Ashbury on a reverse from 15 yards out. Brown then tossed a pass to Larry Wood, who stepped across for the convert. Although the Old Boys didn ' t manage to score, they put up a stiff show of resistance, and the showers after the game were appreci- ated by both teams. ASHBURY vs FISHER PARK HIGH SCHOOL First Game THIS YEAR, for the first time, Ashbury ' s second team, the " B-division " from the first field, had the opportunity of matching themselves against the squad from Fisher Park High School, which school and team, we must admit, was unknown to most of us. Both games were played on our grounds. The first was played Saturday, October 29, and the second a little over a week later on Tuesday, November 1. Ashbury was victorious on both occasions. In the first game both teams applied pressure right from the start but before the first half was over Foulkes had completed a well-earned touchdown for Ashbury as a result of successfully receiving a long pass from Brown, who threw from his 45 -yard line. Brown ' s convert also was successful, putting the score at 6-0. In the second half, things were more evenly matched. No further score was made, and although Ashbury resorted mostly to passes, and many yards were gained through the air, little distance was covered on old " terra firma " . Mclnnes and Burke were also outstanding in their achievement of gaining yards for Ashbury in that they made the most of their ground plays and pass-completions, respectively. Final score— Ashbury 6, Fisher Park 0. ASHBURY vs FISHER PARK HIGH SCHOOL Second Game THIS GAME was even more decisive in Ashbury ' s favour, although the same spirit prevailed on both sides. Brown made two touch- downs and also managed to execute a rouge during the first half of the game. A " sensational " play was performed on the last play of the game. When Ashbury was in possession of the ball, Mclnnes received a very long pass from Brown, and he lost no time in getting over the touch-line before any of the Fisher Park players could tackle him. The game ended right after this, and so Ashbury had three touchdowns and a rouge to its credit. Strangely enough, no converts were success- ful, so the score remained at 16-0. THE SECOND FIELD RUGBY TEAM First row— left to right: Luyken, Roberts, MacNeil, Parsons (Captain), Sobie I, Dillon, Cottingham Second row: Lawson I, Finlay I, Scott I, Nueman, Wharton, Rosenberg Third row: Maxwell, Ross, Mann, Hart II, Nowakowski, Rhodes I Rear row: Eraser I, iMr. Powell SECOND FIELD RUGBY TEAM ASHBURY vs LINDENLEA First Game OUR first game of the season started off in a cold, drizzling rain, and our spirits suited the weather. We were brought out of our slump in the second quarter, when a pass by Mansur was caught by Parsons who ran for a touchdown. We did not make the convert. The game was marked by a fairly high standard of playing, with Parsons and Wharton making a good many tackles. We seemed to gain most of our yards on passes. So the game ended at 5-0 for us. ASHBURY vs NEW EDINBURGH First Game THE second game was against a much bigger, heavier, though less organized team. They had a few men who were much heavier than the heaviest of us. The weather was perfect, and the game started 28 THE ASH B U RI AN off with us in high spirits. These increased when Dillon made a sensa- tional 5 5 -yard run for a touchdown. The convert was not successful. By half-time they had tied the score, and in the second half Mansur made a touchdown, but it remained unconverted. The climax of the game was when New Edinburgh threw a pass over the goal-line, and Dillon collided with the receiver as they were both running for it— both looking only at the ball. We were penalized for illegal interference by awarding them the points. They converted the touchdown to make the score at the end of the game 11-10 for them. ASHBURY vs LINDENLEA Second Game IT MAY truly be said, on looking from week to week in this case, that Lindenlea, by taking thought, had added a cubit to their stature. They beat us resoundingly by 13-5, our score being made by Dillon. ASHBURY vs NEW EDINBURGH Second Game WE HAD expected a tough battle, but their team seemed to be less organized and we beat them 11-0, our scores being made by Parsons and MacNeil. ASHBURY vs LINDENLEA Third Game WE GOT ahead in this see-saw battle between Lindenlea and our- selves, when we beat them 12-0, Cottingham scoring the first touchdown, and we were given the convert due to holding on the line by Lindenlea. Finlay II made the next touchdown, and a rouge was scored near the end of the game. ASHBURY vs NEW EDINBURGH Third Game NEW Edinburgh was extremely late shoM ng up, and to speed things up we lent them most of our subs, who stayed with them throughout the game. The first touchdown was made by MacNeil on a quarterback sneak— it was not converted. Then, later, Roberts intercepted a pass and ran 40 yards for a touchdown— also uncon- verted. However, Roberts often gave us anxious moments, and fumbled the ball by his loose ball-carrying methods. In the second quarter, Wharton intercepted a sleeper pass and within five minutes, Finlay had made a touchdown, which Sobie I converted for our first true convert of the season. In the last few THE ASHBURIAN 29 minutes of the game, Roberts made another 4()-yard run but was stopped short. In the last few seconds we scored a rouge, making the score 17-0. ASHBURY vs BISHOP ' S OUR first game against Bishop ' s was rather a disappointment as we had started off with rather high hopes, only to be defeated 30-0. The superiority of the B.C.S. team was soon apparent, especially in the blocking and running, and in the fourth play of the game they scored their first touchdown. The Ashbury team played well, though, in spite of the score, but the opposition had evidently the edge on us at all times. One of the greatest differences we found in our two styles of play was the absence of huddles and the smoothness of their number calling system. So, taking this to heart, we spent the next week prac- ticing our own little system devised by A4r. Powell. On our next game we were greatly improved, and it was a very good game. They scored a rouge in the first quarter, but we tied it up quite soon. Then they got ahead with a touchdown and convert, climaxing a steady advance down the field. It was in the second quarter that the star play of the game was made for Ashbury. The ball was snapped to the quarterback and then for several seconds, no one knew who was supposed to take it or where. Jimmy Finlay took the initiative and the ball for a forty-yard dash down to the five- yard line, and we scored our touchdown on a quarterback sneak by Parsons. When we converted this touchdown, there appeared to be some hope, but this was dispelled by two more touchdowns for Bishop ' s. Another rouge by us left the score 17-8, but it was a very good game. The only serious injury was a broken wrist for one of the Bishop ' s players. THE THIRD FIELD RUGBY TEAM First row — left to right: Drew, McCulloch III, Baer, Beavers, Angrave I, Echlin Second row. Finlay, Hodgins, Wijkman, Wilson, Ballantyne Third row: Gold, Ryan, Lawson II Rear row: Colonel Brine, Shirley, ' ells II JUNIOR SCHOOL RUGBY THE THIRD field again had a successful season. We were lacking any outstanding players this year but the team managed to give a good account of themselves when matched against teams of equal weight and age. In our more important matches we called upon some of our stalwarts of last year who were still within the age require- ments, and we tliank David Scott, Ned Rhodes and Chris. Nowakowski for their able assistance. We split our two games with Sedbergh, winning here and losing away. One of the features this year was the playing of a twelve years and under team in a match against Lindenlea boys. This game we won by a large margin due in no small measure to the really splendid running of Peter Murphy, and it showed that we had other players of considerable promise for the future. THE ASHBURIAN 31 Billy Baer was elected captain and gave of his best throughout the season. Again we were much encouraged by the attendance at our games of parents and members of the staff. E.G.B. HOUSE GAMES ON November 15, a cold and somewhat wet day, the Inter-House football match took place on our first field. WooUcombe seemed to be the leading edge all along, for only a few minutes after Con- naught ' s starting kick-off, Sumner retrieved a fumble, and this gave Woollcombe their downs. On their kick. Gill II received the ball behind the Connaught goal-line and Price tackled him for a rouge. The first touchdown was made by Price on a quarterback sneak, and the convert being good, Woollcombe now had a 7-0 lead. Another rouge for Woollcombe made by Mclnnis and a touchdown by Prit- chard, together with a successful convert brought the score to 14-0. Andy injured his foot badly in the touchdown play and had to be escorted off the field. He was not hurt before he kicked the ball out of bounds past the Connaught goal for one more point, however. The last touchdown was made by Sobie I in the last quarter and although the convert was unsuccessful, Woollcombe had now achieved a 20-0 score. The house games always inspire plenty of spirit between the contesting teams and they are unfailingly full of interest for the on- lookers, for, in football especially, one can usually expect unorthodox plays and methods to be employed. For example, in this particular game Woollcombe had the advantage of having the first field back- field in opposition to the Connaught team composed almost entirely of lineman players. Hence success was practically ensured. However, Connaught made a good comeback in that they seemed to specialize in the performance of tricky pass-interception technique. THE FIRST SOCCER TEAiM First row — left to right: Jackson, Grimsdale, Abbott, Ricci Centre row: Younger I, Clark II, Schacher, Urbanowicz, Majoli Rear row: Heney I, Mr. Drayton, Clark I (Captain), Dalrymple SOCCER, 1949 THIS YEAR the Ashbury soccer XI played three games against Sedbergh School. The first game played at Ashbury ended with no score for either team. The two teams seemed to be evenly matched, first one team having the advantage and then the other. The Ashbury team was handicapped to some extent due to the size of their forward line. However, though much smaller than the Sed- bergh line, they put up a good fight— as can be seen from the result of the game. The two teams were served refreshments in the school dining-room after the game. For the second game Sedbergh played hosts to Ashbury. This game, like the first, seemed as though it would end with no score, but in the last half Pete Kirby broke through the Ashbury defence and scored, making the final score 1-0 for Sedbergh. At the suggestion of Kirby, the Sedbergh captain, it was decided to play a short game, THE ASHBURIAN 33 ten minutes each way, with five men to a side. There was no score in this game until the last half, when Bill Dalrymple scored for Ashbury from an assist by Toby Setton, making the final score of the game 1-0 in favour of Ashbury. Sedbergh showed their guests their usual hospitality and the two teams were served tea and cake in the senior common room by Mr. and Mrs. Wood. A third game was played at Ashbury which also ended with no score. The scores of these three games show that the teams were well matched, and though both teams put up a good fight they just did not seem able to break through and score. The Ashbury team owes much to the good coaching of Mr. Drayton who took a keen interest in the team, and also to their captain Bill Clark who was the mainstay of the team in his position as centre half. Later in the year the annual house soccer match took place. This is a game that is looked forward to by all. The teams are made up of a combination of soccer and football players, and as a result the game looks like a combination of soccer and football, but it is thoroughly enjoyed by all. The game was not helped this year by the fact that there was two or three inches of snow on the ground, along with several snow forts in the centre of the field. There was no score in the first half and it was not until late in the last half that Larry Wood scored for Connaught, giving them the game with a 1-0 lead over Woollcombe. THE FIRST HOCKEY TEAM THIS season the First Hockey Team started with most of last year ' s personnel and a large first field from which to draw substitutes. The competent coaching of Captain Higgs and a strong team spirit made the First Team a willing and co-operative group. As the season progressed a number of exhibition games were played against Carleton College, Glebe Collegiate, and the Glebe Barons who were in the City Junior " B " League. These games served to warm up the team and bring it to the peak of condition needed for its scheduled fixtures with Bishop ' s, Lower Canada, and Ottawa Tech- nical School. Ashbury had as usual, two scheduled games with Bishop ' s and Lower Canada. The first game was played at Bishop ' s, and, although hard fought, it resulted in a 7-2 score for Bishop ' s, with Doug Heney and Don Brown the only scorers for Ashbury. The match with Lower Canada was played in the Auditorium. Goahe Bill Lee, behind a deter- THE FIRST HOCKEY TEAM FroJit roiv — left to right: Pritchard, Heney II, Lee, Darby (Captain), Gill I Second row.

The final score was 4-0 for Lower Canada. A change in procedure this year led to two scheduled games against Ottawa Technical School in the High School Round Robin Tournament. The first game was played at New Edinburgh and ended in a 4-2 score in favour of the opposition, after a touch-and-go game. Evan Gill and Don Brown were the bread-winners for Ashbury. The second game, played at Tech, by some coincidence resulted in the same score 4-2, with a hard working Andy Pritchard shooting in both goals for Ashbury. The Old Boys game played in the " Aud " was great fun, both for the players and the cheering spectators. The Old Boys, being one year older this season, played a correspondingly slower game— or so it seemed. Don Brown led the scoring with two goals; Doug Heney, Andy Pritchard, and Dick Cherrier all contributed to the final score of 5-1, in favour of Ashbury. THE ASHBURIAN 35 The annual Inter-House games resulted in a Woollcombe House victory. Conna ught House was pursued by bad luck throughout the first game. Goalie Bill Lee received a nasty cut on the head, which kept him off the ice for most of the game. Peter McCulloch filled in but the puck seemed to slip by him and the score read 5-1. The second match was a different story. Lee played a superb game and secured a shut-out against Woollcombe House. Doug Heney made the game a victory for Connaught House by scoring one goal near the end of the last period. The decision, however, rested on points, and Woollcombe House remained in the lead. Although the record does not seem impressive for Ashbury, the scores do not tell the whole story. The First Team played with spirit and sportsmanship, and these two factors cannot but reflect credit on Ashbury College. THE SECOND HOCKEY TEAM First row — left to right: Abbott, Cottingham, Parsons, Dillon, MacNeil, Maxwell Cen tre row: Ross, Sinclair, McCulloch II, Nowakowski Rear row: Mr. Powell, Scott I 36 THE ASHBURIAN SECOND FIELD HOCKEY THE weather having been disastrous for outdoor hockey this past year, the Second Field were able to practice seldom enough and were lucky to have their three games. The first two of these were home-and-home in the first round of the Junior section of the inter- scholastic knock-out competition, and although the Second Team was bolstered by three First Field players (Brown I, Mclnnes, and Mac- Laren) who were young enough to be allowed to play, L ' Academie LaSalle proved on both occasions to be the stronger hockeyists and were deservedly the winners, going on to the semi-finals of the competition. Negotiations for our annual Sedbergh match nearly fell through under the impact of our mump incidence, but the game was eventually played in Papineauville and Ashbury squeaked out a narrow victory 6-5. For this match, we were met, transported to and from the rink, and fed by our kind host Mr. T. J. Wood who showed great for- bearance in agreeing to the match while his school was still free from the disease. Amusingly enough. Hart, who was perhaps as useful to us as any one on the ice, came down with a case shortly after his return to Ashbury. Reviewing the season for the field as a whole, it can be fairly said that far too many boys choose hockey as their winter game and fail to improve their skating by practice during the week-ends— skill with the stick and puck follow nimbleness on skates. Among the honourable exceptions to this charge, mention may be made of Parsons, MacNeil, Scott II, Rhodes I, and Hart, our agile discovery for filling the space between the ' pipes ' . JUNIOR SCHOOL HOCKEY FROM the results of our games (5 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses) it might seem that Junior School Hockey was not quite so good this year; actually, the situation is most promising. Our players this year were younger and smaller than previously, but they put up an increasingly good effort as is partly evidenced by the fact that our losses were all early in the season. Brian Alexander was a popular and highly enthusiastic Captain, and his line with Billy Baer and Jackie Hodgson was working in truly professional style by the end of the season; if only it were possible to keep these three together in future seasons, they would certainly THE ASHBURIAN 37 make a name for themselves. Andy Wells too, was a tower of strength on defence. The younger element promise well and are certain to give a good account of themselves next season. The big event was our trip to the Montreal Forum to play Selwyn House in an exciting tied game; earlier in the season Selwyn House had defeated us at Ashbury by 1-0. We also enjoyed games with Sedbergh School, who defeated us this year both at home and away. On the whole, a very successful and happy hockey season. E.G.B.

S. Price E. Gill HE Ashbury College ski team has built up a record f of invincibility during the past few years. This year proved no exception. It was unfortunate that there were poor skiing conditions for the first six weeks of the term, for the Ottawa Valley Ski Meet at the Seig- niory Club was cancelled. Luckily the traditional meet between Bishop ' s College School, Lower Canada College, and Ashbury was held, and again Ashbury won the meet with little difficulty. We defeated L.C.C. by 60 points and Bishop ' s by almost 150 points. The Downhill and Slalom races were on Saturday, February 25 at North Hatley, and the Cross Country was held as usual on Sunday morning on the B.C.S. grounds. In the Downhill we gained 1st, 2nd, and 4th places, Evan Gill winning, and Scott Price finishing second. The Slalom was won handily by Ashbury, too, as we took 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places. Larry Wood came second in the race. The Cross-Country did not reflect as much glory on our team; however we placed 4th, 8th, 9th, 10th, and 1 1th. The Combined Standing was won by Larry Wood, who gained the amazing average of 287.9 points of a possible 300. Evan Gill was second and Scott Price, fifth. Of the individual competition held in the Gatineau our outstanding performance was turned in by Scott Price, who finished first in the Journal Cup Senior " C " classification meet. As a result of this win he was promoted to Senior " B " classification. The members of the team were: Scott Price and Evan Gill, co- captains, Larry Wood, John Gill, Robert Bryce. Mr. Polk was the faculty member in charge. 1 40 THE ASHBURIAN BOXING Officials Judges Lt.-Col. E. G. Brine Major H. J. Woods Mr. A. B. Belcher Timekeeper Mr. A. D. Brain Referee and M.C Capt. G. W.

THE ASHBURIAN 41 BOXING FINALS THE boxing finals this year were even more successful than they have been in other years. The best bout of the evening was between Evan Gill and Peter McCulloch. Gill seemed to take advantage of his lack of size to get underenath iUcCulloch ' s guard. The first round was fairly even, but during the next two rounds iMcCul- loch gave way to a number of hard rights and lefts to the mid-section. Besides winning the light-heavyweight crown, Gill also retaine d the ringcraft cup for the boxer showing the most ringcraft ability. In the heavyweight division. Bob Darby, although he was several pounds lighter than the champion, was able to win a surprise victory. Lyon was slow in starting and Darby proved to be too fast for him. After three rounds of slugging by both contenders. Darby succeeded in lifting the crown of the former champ by a narrow margin of points scored. Hugh MacNeil and Gerry Wharton, both lightweights and vet- erans of three ehmination bouts apiece, fought three rounds of good hard boxing. The decision might have gone either way, but Wharton was able to beat out his opponent for the lightweight cup. A4acNeil earned a well-deserved trophy for the most spirited display by a boxer. Two featherweights, Adalcolm Parsons and Mike Mansur fought it out in the final senior match. Parsons showed superior boxing ability as he outpointed Ma nsur in all three rounds. Ian Scott was outclassed by Geoff Carne in the junior lightweight division. David Scott and Gerald Ross were evenly matched in the most exciting of the junior events, but Ross managed to win by a sHght margin. In the three remaining battles, Mulkins outpointed Hodgson, Hiney was defeated by Stephen II, and Milbank got the nod over Lancaric. It may be said that, an the whole, this year ' s card showed a greater number of closely contested bouts, and provided more thrills, than we have had in a nights boxing for several years at the school. 42 THE ASHBURIAN THE CROSS ' COUNTRY RACE THE annual cross-country race, a scoring event on the Wilson Shield, was held on Saturday, April 29th, with the senior group of runners getting away promptly at 10:30. The weather was ideal for this type of sporting event, fairly warm with a bright sun, enough of a breeze to keep the runners cool and quite good footing for most of the way. During the practice runs in the week previous the going had been very wet and muddy and the returning runners were well spattered, but a couple of days of sun and strong winds had done wonders in drying out the course and it proved to be clean going all the way. In the absence of the Headmaster, who unfortunately had to leave for Lennoxville that morning on school business, Mr. Belcher officiating as starter waved the seniors on their way at 10.30 and a group of 23 broke through the gate on their 4-mile trek through Rockcliffe. They were followed in turn by the Intermediate, Junior and Under Eleven groups, at about 2 minute intervals to give good road clearance. The large group of parents and friends of the school then stood around and talked while waiting for the first runners to come in. The statistics table had just been re-positioned at the finish line, and judges allotted to take the different leading places, when the scouts out on the road reported that Rhodes II was on his way in; he crossed the finish line, winner of his group, in 6:27, followed by Hiney in 6:51, for 2nd place, and I Stephen I in 7:45, for 3rd. Quite a large number of the i , very junior boys ran well enough to come in under the time limit for their course and thereby earned a point for their house. THE ASHBURIAN 43 At 11:06 Lawson II, running very strongly to finish, crossed the line leading Nowakowski in 2nd plac e at 12:14, and Kyranis, 3rd at 12:30, cleaning up top honours in the junior group; again a satisfying number followed close behind to earn House points. The intermediates were next on the scene with Ross leading and winning in 21:37, Sobie II, 2nd in 21:50, and Abbott, 3rd in 22:00 which, as the figures show, was the most keenly contested finish of the four groups. Interest and excitement had been building up and House points were being mentally calculated while the crowd of runners and spec- tators watched for the first runners of the senior group to appear. Then, at 24:23, Heney II jogged in quite comfortably, with Mc- Cullough I, 2nd in 26:42, and Burgoyne 3rd in 27:01, followed by the large balance of the field, scoring House points. It was a good day, a good race, and the scoring was close, with Connaught winning 47 i to 44i. The officials for the meet were: Starter— Mr. Belcher Course Judge— Mr. Brain Timer— Mr. Sibley Recorder— Mr. Heney Fijiish Judges— Mr. Belford, Mr. Polk, Major Woods Clerk of the Course— Capt. Higgs THE ASHBURIAN 45 CRICKET, 1950 THE season opened with high hopes, plenty of material both human and inanimate, and an enthusiasm which even a cruelly cold Spring could not chill. The results, as far as matches won and lost tell the tale, have not been all they might have, a series of exceptionally close games ending for the most part with our opponents in the lead. The Under 16 XI, under Mr. Heney ' s able coaching, shows the best record, and was narrowly defeated by B.C.S. here after routing them on their own grounds. The Juniors under Col. Brine, with valuable assistance from Mr. Lee and Mr. Belford, have had a good season, culminating in an enjoyable fixture with B.C.S. Prep. The First XI, with D. Heney as Captain, R. Cherrier as Vice, and Mr. Brain coach- ing, has played some excellent cricket, a number of admirable scores and bowling performances being recorded. Unfortunately, inexperience of match play seemed to preclude these being so timed and coordinated as to produce the victories which they justified. The experience gained this season should produce a harvest of success next year. A.D.B. ASHBURY 1st XI vs. DEFENCE C.C. April 29th, 1950 IN cold, windy weather, the Ashbury 1st XI played their first game of the season against the Defence C.C. at Ashbury College. Ashbury won the toss and elected to bat first. The team ' s batting was really ex- cellent and led by the superior exhibition given by Evan Gill (32), we were all out for 96 runs. Defence then went in, and after a stand by H. Bates (23) and S. Simpson (22), declared at 8 wickets for 109 runs. Final score: — Ashbury 1st XI-96. Defence C.C— 109 for 8 wickets. I.G.S. ASHBURY 1st XI D.

Ashbury went in first and ran up a total of 70 runs, all out. Don Brown and Doug Heney led our batting with 16 and 12 respectively. Then our opponents batted and registered 113 runs for a full line-up, with H. Snipper and D. Whitfield outstanding. Final Score: — Ashbury 1st XI— 70 runs. Ottawa C.C— 113 runs. I.G.S.

B.C.S. 1st XI, AT LENNOXVILLE May 13th, 1950 ON May 13th, on a very hot spring day, the Ashbury 1st XI played the first of their annual home and home games at Bishop ' s College School. Ashbury won the toss and elected to bat. Through some very superior bowling by Ross of B.C.S., who was responsible for eight wickets, the team was out with a total of 3 1 runs. Don Brown was our best batsman with 13 runs. Ashbury then took the field, and when eleven wickets had fallen, B.C.S. was credited with a total of 80 runs. Bishop and Reaper were the best run-getters for the home team with 28 and 17 respectively. By this time it had started to rain, and it was impossible to con- tinue with the 2nd innings, so both teams retired to the Chalet for refreshments.

ASHBURY 1st XI vs. THE STAFF XI IN THIS, usually the most exciting and interesting game of the season, the boys were favoured to win. The Staff ' s powerful team of the previous year had lost its stellar performer, and a few old standbys were not able to play, notably Mr. Heney and Mr. Sibley. The boys ' batting was excellent with Heney (35), Brown (32) and Gill (26) outstanding. When 11 wickets had fallen the 1st XI had made a total of 186 runs. The boys then took the field, and the master ' s went in to bat. Mr. Rankin was the Staff ' s best bat with a total of 1 3 runs. ASHBURY 1st XI Brown I— ct. Belford, b Polk 32 Artola — ct.

ASHBURY 1st XI vs. B.C.S. 1st XI, AT ASHBURY May 27th, 1950 IN weather ideal for cricket, the Bishop ' s College School 1st XI came to Ottawa to play the second game in our home-and-home series. Ashbury won the toss and decided to bat first. Led by the batting of Parsons (12) and Weeks (11), the team was all out for 53 runs. Then B.C.S. went in, and by quick, smooth fielding they were out for 67 runs. 32 of these were hit by Reaper and 10 by Bishop. In the second innings, Ashbury declared at 6 wickets for 66 runs in an attempt to get B.C.S. out for 50 runs and thereby win the game. However, this was not to be, for stumps were drawn at 5.30, and at this time B.C.S. had 21 runs for 2 wickets, thus winning the match on the first innings.

It was more than just a Closing Assembly however; it was the School ' s farewell to its Headmaster. With a few heartfelt words, Mr. Glass thanked the boys for their cooperation throughout his term of office, and he went on to mention the multitude of happy memories which he would retain of Ashbury. He spoke of Mr. Perry, who would soon assume his duties as the new Headmaster. Mr. Brain ably and eloquently, as only Mr. Brain can, voiced the appreciation of the School and its regret at the departure of A4r. Glass. There followed a brief readover of Junior Matriculation marks, and the Headmaster awarded games colours to the following boys. Cofinaught House Woollcovibe House Artola Pritchard Brouse I Graham I Baldwin Mclnnes Maclaren Weeks Wharton Hall Wood Re-anjoarded Re-anjoarded Hart I Sudar Cherrier Darby Lee Brown I Lyon Price Gill I On the next day, Thursday, the Closing Ceremonies proper were held, with the weather excessively hot and humid, true to Ashbury Closing tradition. The morning sports events however, were competed with the utmost vigour and enthusiasm. After the senior, intermediate and junior races, broad jump, and last of all the inter-house tug-of-war were finished, Mr. Glass presented prizes to those taking first and second places in the events. That afternoon the parents and guests returned to attend with the Senior boys the Chapel Leaving Service. Outside, on the front lawn, chairs had been placed before the platform, and at the end of the service everyone went out to hear the addresses of the speakers and the presentation of academic awards. Mr. Duncan AlacTavish, as chairman, paid a glowing tribute to Mr. Glass, expressing thanks and appreciation for the good work he had done as Headmaster. Mr. Mac- Tavish then welcomed as Mr. Glass ' successor, Mr. R. H. Perry. THE ASHBURIAN 55 Mr. Perry spoke of the warm welcome given him, and solicited the help of the Board of Governors, parents and students in ensuring Ashbury ' s continued success. Christopher Hart delivered the customary valedictory speech given each year by the head boy. The addresses were terminated by Mr. Glass ' report summing up the School Year. Following this, the academic prizes were awarded by Mr. Perry, and the sports prizes by Mr. Rhodes. At this time Christopher Hart and Douglas Heney presented Mr. Glass with going-away gifts, represent- ing the Prefects and the School respectively.

During my years at Ashbury I have attended many closings, and have seen many changes in the school since I was in Form II. Abinger Hill, an English school, had become a temporary part of Ashbury in my early days, and the memory of Mr. Harrison ' s bedtime stories and the rich English accents heard about the classrooms seem almost as fresh in my mind as last season ' s football games. Many have come and gone, for there are less than half a dozen faces present that I saw that first year. I have grown up here at Ashbury, and Ashbury has more or less grown on me. The years we have spent here have left an indehble mark on our minds, characters and spirits. This is in a large part due to the com- pulsory sports. It is surprising how spirit, happiness and goodwill rise and fall with the interest shown in athletics and the success in sports. Even schoolwork improves, it has been shown, with eager participation in games. We have all made friends here, whom we are sure to meet again in later years. Possibly, from time to time many of us will come together again and will recall the old days here at Ashbury and relive together many of the games contested on her playing fields. We sincerely regret having to close this chapter of memories and comradeship. On the other hand, we will never say farewell to Ashbury, for it will always be a part of us. 58 THE ASHBU RIAX For us who are le.ivine. it is a crucial rime not onlv in our personal careers, but m the historv of this vorld; we rind a country becoming great with fast expanding natural resources. This new-found wealth is useless without people trained to develop it. It is a time for all to euard the future of our nation, and success m this cause depends to a laree extent on the policies and virtues of the voung of the land. Here at Ashburv we have been taught to take an aim on hfe. Now the time draws near when we will trv to hit the mark and put to practice what we have learnt. Rieht from the moment when I rirst came to Ashburv I started to learn new things; I do not mean schoolwork. but that which is so often forgotten. I mean the part of school life which consists of forced labour for others; the forcino- -as a privilege " hich the seniors unofficially enjoved -hen I rirst came. I admit it was a terrible shock, during mv rirst few daws here, to have a bis man ' ith bushv evebrows tower over me and tell me I was breathing out of turn. Such. I soon discovered, were known as prefects. It is onlv after havingr their shadows o ' er hanging vou for vears that vou fuUv appreciate being one. I believe most important of all though, is the learning to live in harmonv with other people, which is what is most needed in our world of todav. I would like to sav fare " ell and thank vou to Mr. Glass who is also leavine. and to wish him all success in his new position. To the stall also we owe a vote of thanks for the interest thev have sho •n m our lives here at school. A ' e hope ' e will justify their work bv our works. The other prefects I would especially like to thank for their support and cooperation throuo-hout the year. Few people realize what a great deal of extra httle duties a prefect has to perform, as opposed to a senior school bov. and, as in any position, the privileges scarcely balance with the services required. As most of our prefects were new to the position. I sa - they have carried out their duties very well and kept the spirit in the school at a high level bv their example. Lastly. I " ould like to thank the school for the many happy years I have spent in it ' s halls, and hope it will riourish and prosper for many years to come. Chris ropiiER Har i. Captain of the School, 1949-1950. ASHBU RIAN 59 PREFECTS, 1949-50 HART I — ' ' Banish plump Jack, a?id banish all the zvorW ' . Chris is our head-boy this year, and he is the guiding light of an effective prefect body. Pound for pound he has put in a sterling effort. A colours foot- baller, a regular first string inside, he was noted for his fleetness of foot and precision in the middle bucks. His extra-curricular activities included the play, in which he was cast as a woman-hating (?) hermit. Cricket helped to whittle away the summer hours, and, last but not least, he spent some time a-hugging and a-chalking. That ' s quite a huge tank they have at Island Park. Chris intends to enter McGill this fall. So, wherever his footsteps tread, the grass will forever be crushed. Seriously though, we wish Chr.s the best of luck in the years to come. i HENEY II — ' ' Light boats sail swift. " " Doug is the Captain of the Day Boys. His other posts of distinction are: Captain of Cricket, Vice-Captain of Hockey, and Captain of Connaught House. As a left winger on the first hockey team Doug was a dangerous and hard driving forward. He played to his utmost at all times. After being one of the big guns in our cricket attack last year Doug was this year appointed to tTie team Captaincy. He seems to have picked up just where he left off last year. (Yeth thir, eh Doug?) As the Captain of Connaught House he added more laurels to his name by winning the Senior Cross-Country race. He is our Adjutant in the Cadet Corps, and has done his duty to the letter. A hard working student, Doug, one of the better students in Six A seems to have troubles with dynes. The best of luck be with you at McGill next year Doug! SUDAR — " Laugh yourself into stitches. ' ' Walt is Captain of the Boarders, and Captain of WooUcombe House, and hails from Malartic, Quebec. He is renowned for his sparkling wit and conscientious work. Walt is equally conscientious on the playing field and was a stalwart guard on the first squad (many opponents complained of being pecked by his ferocious nose guard). A fine hockey player also, Walt gained notoriety as a big, bad defence-man on the first hockey team. Some of Walt ' s other activities include stage managing of the play and Malartic baseball scouting for the Cincinnati Reds. His activities with the fairer sex are a mystery, but he has been seen boarding West-End buses. Next year Walt intends to thrill McGill, and he has our best wishes for success. Dx RBY — " Cherchez la feimne! ' ' ' Bib ' s last year finds him Captain of Footbal l, Captain of Hockey, and the heavy- weight boxing champion of the School. During the football season Bib exempli- fied the spirit of the team with his powerful plunging and vicious tackling. He won the most valuable player award for his fine performance. Always a hard player in any sport. Bib gained for himself the title of " The Bad Man " , of the hockey team. He was one of the most valuable players on the squad. Any spare time mustered from his studies found Bib, Walt Sudar, and or Dick Cherrier laughing their heads off at something or other. Bib plans to grace the campus of Bishop ' s University next fall. The School can well be proud of Robert (Bib) Darby. Wherever you go Bib, you have our sincerest wishes for success and happiness. PRICE — ' ' ' Many are our joys. ' ' Commonly known as " Hark " -Scott is often mistaken for a cowboy, but that ' s silly; this is no drugstore. Fond of fast cars, fast company, besides some home life, one could say he is a convertible character. Scott was the Vice-Captain and quarterback of our first football team. As quarterback he guided the team to an almost undefeated season. During the winter term he was co-captain of the ski team, but this did not prevent him from taking a turn at a few games of hockey. As a skier he gave a good account of himself. A keen cadet, Scott is the com- manding officer of our Cadet Corps. He is also one of the best rifle shots in the School, and has represented the colours of Ashbury in shooting matches. These things should stand Scott in good stead, for he hopes to enter R.M.C. this autumn. Good luck, Scott! SETTON— " Hoar apt the poor are to be proud. " Toby is our clothes ' designer— after a fashion. Toby had a bit of bad luck over the Easter Holidays; he caught pneumonia on the top of Mount Royal. (It :nust have che-lee). He was a placement kicker of some note for the first football team. As there is no ice in Colombia foby had to be satisfied with being manager of the hockey team. He has a knack for business. As the arranger and brain-wave behind our house dances we owe Toby many thanks for the good times we ' ve had on those too few Saturday nights. The school magazine was fortunate in obtain- ing the services of such a talented art editor. This coming fall Toby will have his designs centred on Princeton where he hopes to be for the next four years. Hasta la vista amigo, y buena suerte! THE ASHBURIAN HALL — ' ' Albeit I make a hazard of my bead. " " Don is our Windsor Mills edition, hot off the rural scene. He is the Captain ot the Annexe and is an actor of renown. Don was also a staunch member of the first hockey and football fields. It is rumoured about the Main House that Don is up for re-election as Water Commissioner of the Annexe. Don ' s absence from the Six A form picture was due to mechanical failure of the camera. We are led to believe that tall structures have to be photographed with special aerial cameras. Don is the commander of No. I platoon, and has all the qualities necessary for a good officer. The Faculty of Science at Bishop ' s University will have Don as one of its pupils this autumn. Amazing you say, Don? A huge order perhaps, but not impossible— bonne chance— mon ami. PRITCHARD — ' ' Thursday covies, and the iveek is gone. ' ' ' Andy ' s most distinguished feature is his football prowess. A triple threat half- back, Andy was the terror of our opposition. Lisgar was surprised at his ability, but we were not. Andy played first hockey and possesses a hard and deadly shot. Not to be a laggard as far as sports were concerned Andy turned out for the cricket team. He was successful too. He claims that the best part of the week is the week-end. (Not bad being a weekly boarder, eh, Mary-Andrew?). A platoon commander in the Cadet Corps, Andy has no intentions of joining the Foreign Legion. At present Andy ' s future is somewhat uncertain. (Coming back next year Andrew?). HENEY I — " Young in lijubs — m jiidgj iejit old. ' ' Bauer was the Vice-Captain of Soccer during the fall term. He spent a good deal of time in the rifle range as Rifle Instructor, passing on good advice to many of us. A man of few words in the classroom or otherwise, we wonder if he is writing a book called " The Secret Life of Bauer Heney " , so little do we know about his activities. Bauer is a member of the first cricket eleven a post which he retained from last year. Generally well liked, Bauer has no difficulty in getting along with the boys or the Masters. Another McGill candidate, Bauer is going for engineering. May luck and happiness be with you. CHERRIER — " The loud laugh bespeaks the vacant jfiijid. " Big Richard, the happy-go-luck prefect has not a care in the world. Always in the mood for a laugh Dick can, however, be serious when the occasion calls for it. A bad knee prevented Dick from playing football, but he made up for that during the hockey season. A rugged individualist, Dick made some opponents wish they had not played hockey. He bounced everybody and everything in his path, in- cluding several pucks off his face. Dick is the Vice-Captain of cricket this year, and has the habit of hitting a long ball. He carefully trains his delicate voice every Thursday afternoon on the back quad. He is our C.S.M. Rumours have it that many a woman is swooning over our boy. (Oh you Don Juan you!). Dick has no definite plans for next year, but whatever they are, he has our best wishes for success. GILL I — " He hath a heart as sound as a bell. " Ev ' s efforts in the classroom are rather overshadowed by his brilliant athletic career at Ashbury, and he is the School ' s best all-round athlete. He is well re- membered for his rugged tackling and plunging on the gridiron, and as a shifty winger on the hockey team; as Co-Captain of skiing he continued on his winning ways also. His ring prowess gained him the School middleweight championship, and also the cup for the best ring ability. In the summer season Evan is hitting sixes with the first cricket team. A big man in the social world, he is often seen racing in the Black Beauty, or when in Montreal in a red panel truck. Evan is visiting England for the summer but will return to us next year. We wish him bon voyage and good hunting! PARSONS— " little bidl goes a long zvay. " " Cutie " , whose Christian name is Malcolm, is Captain of the second football and hockey teams; he is also on the first cricket team. One of the bright spots of the senior French class, the " Cure " , (another one of his nicknames) does not escape the watchful eye of the form master. Constantly late for above said class, he claims that it is the duty of the " Cure " to bring up the end of the procession. A boxer of some note, Cutie distinguished himself by winning the lightweight championship. His work in the Cadet Corps is invaluable, for he holds the position of Signals Instructor. Another R.M.C. hopeful, Cutie is going to be in charge of the K.P. squad at that institution. Good luck. General! THE ASHBURIAN 61 FORM NOTES FORM VIA BURGOYNE- " Galloping Nick " heads the form in Math, as well as in the alphabet. He plays rugby and is an ardent skier. Nick loves a good argument and anything composed by Chopin. His one weakness is riding a bicycle without a pant clip. CLARK— " Big Bill " captained First Team Soccer this year and is noted for his love of study. Usually he can be found in a quiet corner reading a western and mumbling about the injustices of the world. DALRYMPLE— " Wild William " is just the opposite to his name in character and seems to enjoy life. He considers nothing more beautiful than a good deck of cards and is often found with his nose flattened against his goldfish bowl studying the eating habits of the Pisces. DARBY— Captain of the First rugby and hockey teams and heavy- weight champion of the school, " Bib " was awarded the Lee Snelling Trophy as the most valuable rugby player. Last year The Ashburian chose him as Ottawa ' s next Chief of Police, and he nearly fulfilled the prophecy as Chief Kennedy in " Seven Keys to Baldpate " . FRASER— The Trumpeting Trentoneer plays a dexterous inside in First Field Rugby, and almost all musical instruments by couples ambidexterously. Plays sinister roles ominously and takes original measures to sleep easy after a hard day of spares. 62 THE ASHBURIAN HALL— Much feted as VIA ' s human toothpick, Don played First Field rugby and hockey this year. He has been known to lose his hair but never his head. To watch Don fold himself into a desk is to see a feat worthy of Houdini. He captains the Annexe and starred in the school play. HART I— Chris is captain of the School, Connaught House, and anchor ■ on the 1st Rugby Team. He is partial to crew cuts but seems to admire curly hair. To completely describe Chris would re- quire a great deal of sohd thought. HENEY I— Bauer was the vice-captain of the First Soccer Team and played First Team Hockey and Cricket. He firmly believes that silence is golden, and that makes him almost unique among his fellow Ashburians. HENEY II— Doug, it seems, is constantly stalked by a huge, ferocious germ, but in spite of it he managed to captain the First Cricket Team and vice-captain the First Hockey Team. LANGEVIN— " Pierre-shape " played Second Team Rugby, Hockey, and First Team Cricket. He rooms with Burgoyne, and anyone who has had the honour of entering room 3 will agree that it has quite an atmosphere. MacCORDICK— " Mack " proved his mechanical genius by creating Station CMAC, and his political acumen by being the impartial sponsor of this year ' s election speeches. John has not only the highest marks in the form but the respect of everyone in it. PARSONS— " The Cure " is his mother ' s pride and joy. He played Second Team Hockey and Rugby, and has a fondness for red checks and giving authoritative answers in French class. Malcolm ' s cheery nature has only one sore spot— he oftens sighs about his size. PRICE— Scotty captained the Ski Team and played First Team Hockey and Rugby. He spends most of his time dodging admirers and Mr. Belcher. He has a mild nature, but, being a Price, would like to see all his enemies ground to a pulp. PRITCHARD— Andy ' s easy smile can be seen a mile away, and his philosophy is, " aw, what the heck " ! He played on the First Rugby and Hockey Teams. His greatest difficulty is assuming a tough expression when an erring student is in need of disciplining. SETTON— Tobias is the terror of New York ' s fashion designers and will sketch at the drop of a hat. He managed the First Hockey Team this year and was always getting on the bus with a " who forgot dees towel " . Toby also played on the First Rugby Team. THE ASHBURIAN 63 WEEKS— " Wee Willie " is our butt-room artist and shining light of the Ashbury Drama Club. He played First Team Hockey and Cricket, is considered the Canasta expert of VIA, and therefore is never last in the shuffle. URBANOWITZ— Now that " Urbie " sports a brush cut it is hard to tell where the face ends and the head begins. He plays First Team Soccer and has the distinction of being the only Pole in the school who speaks German with an English accent. SUDAR— Walt is Captain of the Boarders this year and turned in a soHd performance on the First Rugby and Hockey Teams. He is a rugged individualist, and his pet hobbies are eating pickled eggs and collecting catalogues for " the httle place out behind " in Malartic. FORM VIB WE believe (rightly so, you must soon agree) that ours is the form of the School. VIA may have its preponderance of Prefects and VIC its rhumba-kings and locker-room-lawyers, but where else could one look, apart from VIB, for such a fine diversity of scholars, athletes, and all-round men-of-the-world? From the point of view of numbers, we are easily in first place: that elusive thing, a Junior Matriculation (12 papers still) has a certain charm it seems, and many a fine fellow tarries a year or two with us to get the full flavour of tlie Lab and Lecture Room atmosphere. If VIA may be likened to the Field and Flag officers and VIC to the Headquarters Company wallahs, then assuredly VIB is the Cavalry, booted and spurred, to face any and all eventualities. Look at the bench 64 THE ASHBURIAN in football and hockey, scan the Off-games List and Detention sheet, peep into the Extra Work Sessions and Tutorials, nay, even Black List, and what does one see? One sees the names and faces of our stalwarts taking the weight, shouldering the burden, facing the music, and feeling the heat. In short, we are the ve ry life of the School. Without further ado, we subscribe the following distinctions in the modest expectation that such statistical conclusions as may be drawn will fortify our original thesis: — PREFECTS-Gill I, Cherrier. FOOTBALL-Artola, Brouse I, Cherrier, Gill I, Gill II, Kerr I, Lyon, Mclnnes, Van der Voort, Wood. HOCKEY-Baldwin, Cherrier, Gill I, Mclnnes, Wood. SKIING-GiU I, Gill II, Wood. CRICKET-Artola, Cherrier, Foulkes, Gill I, Mclnnes. CORPS-Gill I (Lieut.), Cherrier (C.SM.), Boyd (Q.M.S.), Brouse I (Sgt.), Lyon (Sgt.). DRAMA-Cherrier (Asst. Stage Mgr.). CLUBS-Fraser I (Pres. I.R.C.). PARLIAMENT-Ditto (Prime Minister), Van der Voort (Cabinet). MISC.— Lyon (Chapel Clerk), Kerr I (Projection Booth). VIA 1950-5 1-Hmmmm.

TOM GOODE A late comer to VIC, Is this tall lad from Good B.C., Now he ' s in this frigid land The rigors of winter he cannot stand. RICHARD HUMBERT Humbert is a railroad fan.

And since studious zeal is his lack He gets more work heaped on his back. GEORGE TURNBULL Everyone likes TurnbuU fine. But when borrowing books, he borrows mine. This habit of his is not endearing So sometimes I am hard of hearing. LUKE WELLS Luke always has some prep to do. He wears bright ties of joyous hue. He ' s the one we ' ll always back To get our masters off the track. PADDY TISDALL I think it is a crying shame That I should be thrust into fame.

Louis is a bright little lad with much wit about him. CARNE— Geof is always kidded because he comes from Australia, but this is no drawback for him, and he makes the most of his ex- periences over there. He does well in class, and is an enthusiastic cricket player. CARVER— When a master is in need of anything from a piece of chalk to a blotter, Mr. " Pockets Full " always comes through. The youngest member of the class, ' X " shines in most of his subjects GRIMSDALE— Bill had a hard time to think up some of the class notes, but managed to get them finished. A boy from Venezuela, " Grimy " is most of the time bright, except when he forgets to bring his required equipment to class.

LEBOUTILLIER— Our all American Pennsylvanian is a studious boy, and an enthusiastic baseball and football player. Boots is also our star " Man about the Girls " .

He plays hockey and football for the First Field. ALAN ROSENBERG Nickname: Rosie. Favourite pastime: Making up excuses. Favourite expression: ' I lost the prep, sir " .

He has quite a serious attitude toward work. He played soccer with enthusiasm. He ' s a good sport. 70 THE ASHBURIAN FORM SHELL OUR form consists of six young, intelligent, industrious boys; al- though we originally had eleven, we are now cut to a minimum of six. Our prep monitor Scott is a boy of great ability, or perhaps we should say, volubility; though one of the elders, he is the smallest. Nowakowski another loud-mouth besides Scott, hails from Poland. He does well in class and games, but we think he talks a little too much. Hart, the most " petit " member of our httle family, tips the scales at 178 lbs. He wishes to become a gym instructor, and we are sure he will fulfil this worthy ambition. Carrasco came to us from Chile three years ago. He is quiet and well liked, but he is often kidded about the sources of his prep work. " Cwithy " West, although he lives in the U.S.A. or Chicago as he calls it, has worked hard all year in school and games. And last, but not least, (although some people seem to think so) comes the brain of our class, a boy with an 85% average, straight from the heart of U.S.A., Benjamin Scott Custer Jr. (Fluff). Thus ends the summary of our class. FORM IV THE ASHBURIAN 71 Of Form Four, first is Besson QUite closely trailed by Dillon OuR next is Graham II. Then, Fourthly, comes Gutierrez, While Our young Greek Kyranis Is enteRed next, lest Maxwell Should March on Aierrick ' s heels.

Beavers, called Pat, up to all kinds of larks. Bow, our big Charlie, who writes much in rhyme. Gold who is scrapping most all of the time. Hodgson, our Yankee, a great baseball fan; Lawson whose efforts at spelling we ban. Preston, at laughing and eating he ' s good; Sparks doesn ' t care so much for his food. Van Roi ' jen who ' s up at the top of the class. Wells who also should score a good pass. Wilson, our Robin, not safe with an axe, Wijkman, called P.M., at maths he ' s quite lax. All the above Form Transitus make And at writing form notes they just take the cake. FORM IIIA ALEXANDER A smiling boy and quite athletic. But not so good at things mathematic. ANGRAVE Dark and Greek and full of noise, And yet is liked by other boys. BAER Finds school and studies quite a bore. At games and sports a man o ' war. BROWN Works hard at school and games as well.

A vacant plot, we ' ve lost a lot, ' Cause that ' s the spot, where Tony ' s not. Smiling, quick, quite untidy. Always glad to leave on Friday. By chance of fate he came in late.

The per- manent Treasurer of the Fund, C. G. Gale, reported its progress to date during the business portion of the Annual Dinner of the Associa- tion which was held at the Royal Ottawa Golf Club on the evening of May 1st. Second perhaps among the activities might be the representation of the Association on the field of valour against the School ' s football and hockey teams where the Old Boys were soundly thumped 20-0 and 5-0 respectively. By the time this is read by Old Boys the Cricket game will have been played, a game where senility and or corpulence are not of such moment. The Annual Meeting and Dinner proved once again to be a great success with more O.A ' s. in attendance than at any of the 4 previous dinners held since the end of the war; and once more we were most happy to welcome as a guest Canon WooUcombe who favoured us with his customary word of encouragement and admonition. He also referred to his firm expectation of being with us at the next dinner but one which will mark the completion of the School ' s 60th year. With Canon Woollcombe as guests were our new Chairman of the Board of Governors, Mr. Duncan MacTavish and Christopher Hart, the School ' s head prefect. Mr. MacTavish, the principal speaker of the evening, kept his audience spellbound with his address, in turn grave and gay; and in the course of his remarks gave us an admirable outHne of the history of education in the U.K. and Canada from the earliest days to the present. He referred to the three principal modes of education— pubhc, private, and " worldly " i.e. the school of hfe with its hard knocks. During the business meeting prior to the Dinner, the following slate of officers for the Association for 1950-51 was proposed, seconded, and voted into office: President: Commander W. G. Ross, R.C.N., Vice-President: Wm. F. Hadley, Esq., Recording Secretary: S. A. GiUies, Esq., Secretary -Treasurer: J. A. Powell, Esq., Honorary Campaign Treasurer: C. G.

We have always had " appreciative audiences " , " capable performances " , " first-rate direction " , but on March 10 when Seven Keys to Baldpate was presented at the Glebe Collegiate Auditorium, the audience was treated to a rarity, a really well acted school play. Mr. Belcher is to be congratulated on his fortuitous choice of play. Seven Keys to Baldpate is a farcical melodrama by George M. Cohan and was perfectly suited to the talents of the Ashbury College and Elmwood Dramatic Societies. Schoolboys cannot be expected to portray convincingly the sophistication which is a necessary part of the comedies of Noel Coward and G. B. Shaw. Seven Keys to Baldpate concerns a wager made by William Magee, a novelist. He has bargained to produce a novel within twenty- four hours. He goes to Baldpate Inn for the seclusion which will allow him to write his story. The next twenty-four hours bring enough con- centrated distraction to fill a novel, and, as the surprise ending to the play explains, this is just what has happened. The audience has seen Magee ' s story unfolding. 80 THE ASHBURIAN The murderers and gangsters, the crooked pohticians and gun molls, the mad hermit and lovely newspaper reporter are all characters in Magee ' s plot. Bill Weeks as Magee had a particularly difficult role to act. He was on stage almost continually and much of the action revolved around him. His performance was assured. Bob Bryce and Leslie Ann Jackson were most effective in the roles of the caretaker and his wife. Perhaps the most professional performances were those of Gail Baird and Nick Eraser as the moll and gunman; but it is difficult to pick outstanding actors, for no one sounded false in the part; there was no squirming in the audience. Betsy Alexandor, the newspaper reporter, and Sally AicCarter, her chaperone, turned in fine performances. Christopher Hart was imaginative as the hermit, and Alan Rosenberg was a convincing mobster. Donald Hall and Peter Langevin as crooked politicians were sufficiently evil for their parts. Bob Darby was most suitably cast as the police chief. Alan McCulloch as the owner of the Inn, Toby Setton and Douglas Graham as policeman admirably completed the cast. The general effectiveness of the play must of course be credited to Mr. Belcher. His work this year produced what was, I believe, his most successful play. The review would be incomplete without mention of Mr. Darby whose stage setting gave an effective background for the action. I have been told that Diana Eraser was most conscientious in attending rehearsals. She undertook to be a general understudy for the girl ' s parts, an important though unsung role. Walter Sudar, Lucien Wells and Richard Cherrier made up the stage crew and merit congratulations. The play was stimulated by a receptive audience. This most necessary part of any public showing was made possible through the good work of Rev. W. J. Belford and a strong crew of ticket salesmen from Elmwood and Ashbury. The evening was a success financially and real thanks are due to him. Mr. Sibley as prompter did nothing on the night of the play. The glamour of the stage is not lessened, rather is it exaggerated at the school boy level. The smell of grease paint is more exciting than the musty odour of the classroom certainly, perhaps even more so than the mus-sweat smell of the football field. There is no doubt that the triumph of the evening will be a long-held memory by all who were associated with this production. THE ASHBURIAN 81 CADET CORPS THURSDAY afternoon, May 25, marked the Annual Inspection of the Ashbury Cadet Corps. At the saluting base was Commander W. G. Ross, R.C.N. ; accompanied by his aide Lt. E. Richardson, R.C.N. ; Captain W. G. Higgs, chief instructor of the Cadet Corps; and Headmaster Ogden Glass. The corps went through a series of manoeuvres, fourteen in all, to complete the ceremonial drill. The reviewing officer was impressed by the excellence of the corps ' per- formance on parade. Commander Ross, a former Ashbury boy, commented on the quahty of the Corps ' manoeuvres and stated that Ashbury has pro- duced many noted naval, army, and R.C.A.F. leaders. He then pre- sented the Cadet Corps with the Strathcona Trophy which it won last year for being the best corps (of its size) on parade in Ontario. Commander Ross proclaimed, in the traditional Ashbury manner, a half-holiday for the cadets and received three rousing cheers from the corps. The Inspection was composed of three sections; a ceremonial drill, a special squad display, and a mass P.T. demonstration. An apprecia- tive audience of parents applauded the efforts of the cadets through- out the inspection. There were 128 cadets on parade along with 36 82 THE ASHBURIAN underage cadets in the Junior platoon. During the fall and winter seasons the Cadet Corps trained in First Aid, Signalling, Rifle Shooting, Woodcraft, Weapon Training, and many other subjects pecuhar to Cadet Training. This year the Cadets fired their Annual Shooting Classification with gratifying results. There were 12 cadets who qualified as " Marksmen, Sniper Class " , with scores of 90 or over; 17 who qualified as " Marksmen, Expert Class " , with scores of 80 or over; 21 " First Class Shots " , and 19 others who " Qualified " . The Cadet year has been a successful one, and the interest taken by each cadet was illustrated by the perfection in the drill of the inspec- tion. Captain Higgs, the Cadet Officers, and the boys are all to be congratulated for their fine work. May next year once again see the presentation of the Strathcona Trophy to the Ashbury Cadet Corps. THE ASHBURIAN 83 CHURCH PARADE ON THE bright Sunday morning of May 14, the Ashbury Cadets donned their newly-pressed uniforms to attend the annual church parade with the Governor-General ' s Foot-Guards. This being the only event of its kind during the school year, care was naturally taken to ensure as good a turnout as possible. Shoes were polished until one could traditionally " see his face in them " , and the night before, you could see many people about the school vigorously rubbing objects in their hands with pocket handkerchiefs— brass cap badges. After being transported from the school to the Parade Hall by bus, the cadets formed up in the rear of the Guards, and the company marched out to the raucous fanfare of the Foot-Guards ' band. The Ashbury contingent consisted of three major platoons and one junior platoon outfitted in school blazers and grey flannels. Our route took us up the driveway to Confederation Square and the full length of Sparks Street, from whence the Roman Catholic divisions veered off to their church, while the Protestants marched straight on to Christ Church Cathedral. Both services were excellent, and much enjoyed by everybody. Forming up once more, this time in front of the Cathedral, we again marched up Sparks Street, between the thronged sidewalks. As our chartered buses conveyed us from the Parade Hall, everyone dis- cussed with satisfaction the performance which we had displayed, and Captain Higgs expressed his thanks for " a splendid show " . The Corps arrived at the school just in time for luncheon; a chance to satisfy a ravenous hunger worked up from a vigorous march. 3it (JHmoriam THE School mourns the death of Richard Westly Busk, who died suddenly at his home on December 8th, 1949, aged 16 years. Cheerful, agreeable and intelligent, he was popular with his school- fellows and all members of the teaching staff at this school, and it was a great shock to us to learn of his sudden and untimely death. In the School Chapel, where he was recently confirmed, there has been erected a plaque to his memory. It stands opposite his place in the chapel and bears these words: ' Here ' s a boy . . . He lived all through the singing season And ere the day of sorrow Departed as he came. ' 84 THE ASHBURIAN THE SCHOOL DANCE FRIDAY, April 14th, again brought us around to the annual Formal Dance with its gay decorations and good orchestral music. Mr. and Mrs. Glass, together with Chris Hart, the head boy, and his girl, Joan McKevey, comprised a cordial receiving line for the couples as they arrived at the front door. Elaborate preparations had been made, and crepe-paper hangings lined the corridor, common-room, and upper class-room. Three boys were required for this enterprise. At the last minute the tables were moved out of the dining hall to allow dancing space and the final touch of blocking the lower corridor with a large Union Jack to conceal the moved-out furniture, placed everything in readiness. Our dining hall, with its beautiful oak panelling and spacious interior, together with the convenience afforded by its natural proximity to the kitchen (with its refreshments), is reserved as an ideal place for such an occasion. A new decoration novelty in the form of toy balloons was intro- duced for the first time this year, and while the boys spent the Friday noon rest period unpacking and inflating them, it was discovered that by rubbing them on a coat-sleeve they would attain an electrical charge and chng to any near-by surface. Thus they were attached to walls and ceilings with the greatest of ease, to produce a most novel and striking effect. Those present enjoyed themselves to the limit. The orchestra was excellent, although small, but it soon expanded into an extra trumpet and a trombone, by Ashbury contribution. Fraser II had been pulled out of bed to come down and play, and he felt somewhat " groggy " . MacCordick, skipping every second dance to play the trombone, was meanwhile handicapped by a lack of orchestrations. However, the combined overall effect was acknowledged as being " quite satisfactory " . THE ASHBURIAN 85 PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST THE public-speaking contests for the Ross McMaster prizes were held at the end of Trinity term. Contestants were fewer in num- ber than in recent years, possibly due to the nearness of the final exams. The quality of the speeches and of their enunciation was high however— remarkably so in the Senior Division. In this class the ad- judicator found it impossible to arbitrate between Ian Scott and John Fraser. An additional prize has therefore been awarded by the school. In the Intermediate Division the prize was awarded to Geoffrey Carne; and in the Junior Division to David Alexandor. The participants in the Junior Division were all newcomers to public-speaking. Their deportment and delivery were commendable; but the adjudicators found it advisable to criticize them for extensive use of verbatim speeches. The Headmaster, who was acting as one of the adjudicators, suggested that the demands of broadcasting and fear of misrepresenta- tion by the press had increased the frequency of read speeches. How- ever these considerations should not concern schoolboys in a com- petition whose objective was to encourage the habit of extemporaneous speaking with intelligence. Messrs. Belcher and Drayton were adjudicators together with the Headmaster. THE GLASSES ON THE Editorial Page we bade our adieux to Mr. C. L. Ogden Glass, the retiring headmaster. Here, we should like to say a few words of farewell to the other members of the family. Mrs. Glass, by the warmt h, sincerity, and brilliance of her person- ality, has endeared herself to all here who knew her— not only in the School itself, but beyond its walls. We shall miss her. We shall miss her merriment, her intelligence, and her genial hospitality. Neither shall we lightly forget the junior members of her delight- ful family. The parade ground, the crescent, the presentation of prizes on Sports Day, will lack the benison of the sprightly Nancy, the volatile Diana, the jovial Gordie. We wish them all the tops in human happiness, and we look for- ward to seeing them again from time to time at Ashbury. 86 THE ASHBURIAN MUSIC IT IS becoming increasing evident on all sides that music is one of the most valuable parts of a general education. In adolescent and adult life music paves the way to pleasant and wholesome social relation- ships of enduring value. The classes in music appreciation in the Junior school are care- fully planned with these ideas in mind. The music chosen is used to give the students some knowledge of the facts of music, melody, basic rhythmic patterns, simple forms, orchestral instruments, etc. A lecture piano recital was given by Miss Irene Woodburn, the director of music at Ashbury, for the Senior boys during Michaelmas Term. Her program included compositions from the early seven- teenth century to the present day. The boys were most interested and enthusiastic. In the Lent term Miss Woodburn was hostess to a group of senior boys at her home where a piano recital was given by Kenneth Peacock, young Canadian composer and pianist. His program included some of his own compositions. The evening ended in a lighter vein, with re- freshments being served and Mr. Peacock responding to numerous requests for boogie, Bach and Chopin. We consider ourselves lucky at Ashbury to have at our disposal the services of Miss Woodburn, a concert pianist of note. During the week of May fifteenth Miss Woodburn presented over the C.B.C. International service piano recitals to Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand. THE ASHBURIAN 87 LITERARY SECTION WHITE WATER THERE is nothing quite so exciting as shooting a set of rapids in a well loaded canoe. My canoe was to go first as it was our turn to do so. There are many strokes employed which are not used in ordin- ary paddling; these were demonstrated to all of us on the trip by a " Moose " . In swift water the bow man temporarily becomes skipper of the canoe, and directs the stroke of the stern man. My bow man took a large amount of verbal abuse considering the really fine job he did up front. My other man was situated amidships, perched on a pack. We knelt low in the canoe, as I let go of the shore where we had stopped to look things over. This set of rapids, called " Cheval Blanc " , dropped a considerable distance between the rocky shore-lines of the Lievre river. At this point you get an odd feeling in the pit of the stomach as there is no turning back, and if you miss a " U " , you may be whirled broadside to the current and dumped into the boiling tor- rent with packs lost, canoe wrecked, and, very likely, an injury to yourselves, all many miles from help. In rapids you have to paddle hard in order to have good steerage; the swiftness with which you pass the rocks beneath and beside you is deceiving in respect to your speed in relation to the water. In some places the river was so shallow that we scraped off paint on the pebbly bottom. In another place we shd through a rocky sluice near the shore and narrowly missed a log jammed between two rocks. As we swung hard to miss a boulder, the spray curled off into the canoe, drenching the packs and filHng our craft with about four inches of water. At the end of the mad, rushing trip, we pulled into a rocky cove, where the whirlpool currents churned the silt bottom and left dead logs lining the shore. We dragged our canoes over some decaying logs to solid rock. The second canoe was leaking badly, and had to be patched. Ours had two cracked ribs but was in fair shape. The con- tents of the packs had to be dried, and my camera, when squeezed, squirted water at the hinges. Our bags of food were soaked, the sugar had made a sticky mass of one pack, and it took us about two hours to dry the blankets. We lost a lot of time with that adventure, but the momentary thrill of racing through the white foam was well worth it, to our minds, and shall no doubt be remembered for many years. Hart I, Form VIA. 88 THE ASHBURIAN " VICTORIA " For football, ' twas a lovely day, The sun was shining bright, The weather, it was great for play, The fans were at their height. The players ran onto the grid. And cheers hailed from the crowd. Our mighty captain made his bid With actions that spoke loud. We rallied up and down the field With gains and losses too, But then the others had to yield As we pounded back anew. The crowd was on its feet once more As Pritchard hit the Hne, And stalwart Chris ploughed on before As Andy ran for nine. The game was ours as all could see. The final whistle blew; The score for them was only three, For us, ' twas twenty-two. A proud and happy team it was That gathered there that night; With bruises, cuts, and bleeding jaws They weren ' t a pretty sight. A.B.P., Form VIA BOMB AWAY ON August 9, 1945, a flight of B-29 ' s thundered towards Nagasaki. All but one of the planes carried normal bomb loads. The ex- ception carried a single missile only, and this was fitted, unusually enough, with a parachute. Inside this plane, the bombardier was sitting perfectly still and staring at the bomb release. He was a good looking man, although rather small and slight of build. He was in his late twenties, had sharp and clear cut features, large blue eyes, and short light brown hair. His general appearance gave an impression of great potential strength, moral rather than physical. His appearance one associates with philoso- phers and scientists, rather than with bombardiers. He sat and watched the bomb release as if the whole universe revolved around it. Two days before, a bomb had been parachuted onto the Japanese city of Hiroshima. It was estimated that the ex- plosion had killed sixty thousand people. The bombardier was wonder- ing how many people would die at Nagasaki. THE ASH B U RI AN 89 " It doesn ' t really matter " , thought he. " Someday they all must die; why not now? Is this not better than an invasion ten times worse than at Iwo Jima? Did they not start it? Do they not deserve it? Have they not killed, tortured, and layed waste? Why should I be squeamish? I am merely a cog in the wheel; I am only a switch in the circuit. " As he stared at his instruments, the bomb release seemed to grow larger and larger, crowding out all else. " But it does matter " , he thought. " Sixty thousand human lives will always be sixty thousand lives, no matter where or whose they are. Many will be women and children — children who must die before they really begin to Hve. It was not these who attacked us. Why must they die for the crimes of their leaders? Why must sixty thousand people perish at the throwing of a switch? Why ... " His thoughts were interrupted by the pilot ' s voice telling him they were approaching the target. The bombardier ' s routine began. He heard his voice, as if it were from a machine, say, " Bomb doors open, . . . steady on course " . His thoughts came thick and fast. " Sixty thousand go with the switch, . . . with the switch go sixty thousand " . Again he heard his voice droning monotonously, " steady, . . . steady " . Now he had his sight. His hand moved forward as if of its own accord. It grasped the release. Slowly and deliberately it pulled. He heard his own voice deliver the sentence, " Bomb away! " Dalrymple, Form VIA RETALIATION The battle is over, the fight is won, The proud they have conquered and beaten the Hun; The Allies glower and order the foe To lay down their arms— now commences their woe. It has been decreed that their leaders must pay. For victors o ' er vanquished they must have the say: But yet who are we to decide who must die. To perish by hanging and in the e arth lie. A hero arises now out of their midst. He cheated the hangman by slashing his wrists; Now he is a god to be put above all, And many ' s the thousands who follow his pall. The passions of old now are kindled anew. And hatred is roused against victors so few. For now ' tis rebelHon who ' s rearing her head. And I fear that the streets will be running with red. P. M. Langevin, Form VIA. 90 THE ASHBURIAN PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE To life I would compare a match That springs to being with a scratch; Then suddenly a glowing flame- One moment raising it to fame. There hes ahead a goal to achieve, Or maybe a love in which to beheve, A hobby, that you mayn ' t be bored; And still you believe in the heavenly Lord. And yet there comes a gentle breeze That fans the flame you did not please. So that it smoulders, to go out To leave you in darkness with the doubt That on this earth you did fulfil God ' s only purpose and His will. William A. Clark WOMEN Women are a fickle lot. They let you chase them till you ' re caught, But if perchance you get away; They ' ll hound you till your dying day. Always faithful— what a laugh! They think that they ' re the better half; But yet, in truth they are not so; Their only thought is spending dough. Still, if you marry, faith, beware. You ' ll be the worse off of the pair; Your money will go to buy her hats. And then she ' ll soothe you with gentle pats. So, if you ' re a bachelor by some chance, Beware that sly, appealing glance. And if you want to remain a single. Just apply your eye to this timely jingle. Darby, Form VIB. THE ASHBURIAN 91 ASHBURIAN " Mayors Telum suum Concutit " (Mars is shaking his spear) The headlines are teUing of progress, But people are worried and wan; And fear in thin tremulous whispers Seeps in like the hght of the dawn. The ministers meeting in Whitehall, The generals making their plan- United they stand, lest divided they fall Crushed ' neath a mightier hand. Then nations shall huddle together Still hoping for peace built with words, While up north in the bitter cold weather The Cossacks still sharpen their swords. The world is a keg of explosive That now awaits only the spark. Though peace, we protest is our motive. We are forging fresh steel in the dark. But still there is hope for the peaceful That the embers of strife may yet die And the spark that would set off the powder May not light while the powder is dry. Eraser I, Form VIB.

A BIRD ' S OPINION ON AEROPLANES AsooT-BLACK crow sat in a pine tree and cawed loudly. It was the signal for the " All Feminine Debating Club " to gather for its meeting. First, Mrs. Robin arrived, closely followed by Mrs. Blue Jay, Mrs. Sparrow and Mrs. Catbird. There were about twenty members, including the last arrival, Mrs. Red Wing Blackbird, an old, dignified woman of the crow family. When everyone was assembled, the group began to twitter gaily. Suddenly, without warning a trans-continental airliner swooped over them. Terrified by the noise, they scattered. When the aeroplane had passed and they had reassembled, they found that Mrs. Blackbird was missing. Eventually she came toward them panting for all she was worth, for the nose dive she had taken had been hard on her. " I quit " , she sobbed. " The nerve of those things, trying to run us down " . She flew away, mumbhng under her breath, trying to console her hurt feelings. " I think aeroplanes are very daring and splendid. We should be proud that the fastest machine in the world is in the air " , said Miss Swallow, one of the younger members. " I think they are the worst things— imagine trying to steal our tricks of the trade " , replied Mrs. Wren. " They won ' t get my trick of flying backward " , boasted Mrs. Hummingbird. " Oh yes, they already have it " , said Mrs. Blue Jay. " They have a helicopter " . " Mamma, what ' s a hehcopter? " , asked little Johnny Blue Jay. " Be quiet, Johnny " , ordered Mrs. Blue Jay, with a frown. She had been forced to bring him along as she could not get a s itter for him. Johnny ' s reputation was not of the best. " Mamma, can I go up in a hehcopter? " , asked Johnny. His mother silenced him with a look. THE ASHBURIAN 93 Just then another plane came roaring over them, and again all conversation stopped. When they could once more hear themselves, Mrs. Wren said, " I move we change our club-house to another tree. This is too noisy, we can never get any ... " She was interrupted by screams from Johnny. He had been trying to fly backward and had fallen to the ground. With sobs of " my poor darling " , Mrs. Blue Jay dove to his rescue. Soon after this, the meeting broke up. Between Johnny and the planes nothing more could be done that day. Only Miss Swallow remained at the top of the tree gazing adoringly at the last aeroplane as it vanished in the distance. WijKMAN, Form III A THE CAT IN OUR HOUSE AS SEEN BY A MOUSE TOM and Jane were walking through a field when they heard the clapping of wee paws. They put their ears to the ground and heard an old mouse telling some little mice a story. I ' m an old field mouse, (the field mouse was saying). My hole is here, as you see, in this field overlooking the river. I remember the time when I could curl up in a big matchbox with a cozy piece of felt. But now, alas, there is nothing to do but to stretch out on some coarse reeds with rheumatism shooting up my spine. Perhaps I had better tell you how I came to live here by these murky brown waters with dusty smoke-clad freighters chugging mournfully into the bay. Well, it was quite awhile ago, perhaps a year and a half, that I lived between the walls of a large white stucco house. Everything was rolling along nicely, then suddenly my supply of crumbs ran out. So, late that night, when the house was quiet, I climbed out of my hole and scampered over to the kitchen, my claws making a loud scratching noise on the linoleum floor in the eerie silence. I reached the cupboard and saw a yellow piece of wood. I went over and sniffled it. It smelt quite good, so I took a piece and swallowed it. As I was reaching for another piece of that delicious stuff a plate slipped and fell to the floor with a deafening crash. I grabbed the yellow stuff and made for my hole as fast as my frightened legs could carry me. As soon as I was back safely in my hole I heard a shuffling of slippers as the negro cook came down. I heard a pause, a sigh, then a yelp of pain as she probably stepped on a piece of the broken plate. She started limping up stairs. The next morning I heard the cook talking to the lady of the house. ' Missus ' , she said, ' I dun not know where dat mouse ' s hideout could be. I ' s a-seched dis heah house from head to toe ' . ' Nonsense, Nancy ' , replied the lady. ' You know how careless you are with putting 94 THE ASHBURIAN things away. You probably never put that cheese back, and if you had put that plate tidily it wouldn ' t have dropped. Now go back to your work and don ' t let me catch you trying to tell me that there are such things as mice in this house ' . She turned on her heel and walked away. That afternoon the cook came running back. ' Missus ' , she cried. ' I dun gone and find dat hole, I ' as ' . ' What hole? ' the lady asked. ' Why, dat mouse hole ' , Nancy answered. ' You come with me and Nancy show you ' . She led the way to my " hide out " where I was crouched in the corner. ' Sure enough, Nancy. I ' ll get Alec to get some mouse traps ' . She turned away while the cook stood there saying, ' Sure ' nuf, sure ' nuf. Dat ' s dat mouse ' s hide out ' . That night as I was going to get some more cheese, (that was the name of that yellow stuff), I caught a strong scent of it. I looked about and there, believe it or not, was a big piece of cheese fastened on a piece of wood with wires. I snatched it, and a tremendous crack occurred, and I felt something whiz past my hind leg. I was paralyzed with fear, and it took me a few minutes before I regained my senses. When I did, I saw that one of the wires had been released and just missed my foot. I went back to my hole, but I hadn ' t much appetite to eat the cheese now, so I put it away and went to bed. My nerves were on such an edge I could hardly sleep. The next night the same thing happened, but I was prepared for it and got ofF without any injuries. This went on for several nights, until one night there wasn ' t the usual strong scent of cheese in the air. I was going out to see, but to my horror I found that something was blocking up my hole. I cautiously went over and there, to my amazement, I touched something soft and silky. There was a scream, a s-s-s-t, and the big cat which was lying in front of my hole started racing around the room. I slipped out into the room, giggling at the silly cat, but before I knew it, the " silly " cat was upon me. Then began the world speed record. I believe I won it, too. I ducked under chairs and the " silly " cat would run right into them. This was the best fun I had had in years. I looked over my shoulder and yelled, ' Hurry up. Slow-poke, if you want to get me ' . This would only annoy the cat, and she would go floundering into a few more chairs. Suddenly the lady came down with the cook who was yeUing blue murder. ' Here, pussy. Good kitty. That ' s it, come to papa— I mean mama ' , yelled the lady. The cat obediently trotted over to the lady, expecting something for her good work. I made for my hole. Suddenly, the cook pulled off her slipper and hurled it at me. It hit the wood THE ASHBURIAN 95 just above my hole. I got in but the cook was still screaming. She had stubbed her toes on the stairs when she had taken off her sHpper. Now this is where the story begins to turn sad. The next day there was a new cat. She was scrawny, and there was a glint of steel in her eyes which I didn ' t notice at first. I scampered out, expecting to have my regular game of Cat and Mouse. But this cat wasn ' t the same. As soon as I darted in front of her nose one paw came down, making an ugly gash in my side and pinning me to the floor. I struggled in vain. I shut my eyes as I saw the cat, with a cruel smile, licking her lips. Then I thought of something. I remembered the pepper-shaker which had fallen off the table. The cat had changed her grip on me. She had one paw on my chest, the other was raised to send a crushing blow to my head. I reached around with my tail, which was free, and finally located the pepper. Without a second to spare I wound my tail around it, held my breath, and started shaking. Suddenly, the cat, with his paw still poised in the air, started sneezing. That red pepper had done the trick. Without pausing, I dashed through the halls, scaring some digni- fied, ancient women who were sipping tea with the lady up onto their chairs as I made my break for freedom, never to return to that house, again. So now, my children, I hope you will never be so foolish as to play with cats. They aren ' t as silly as they look. WijKMAN, Form IIIA. THE SEASONS I like to see the grass again, I like to hear the robins sing, I Hke to see the budding trees, And then I know it ' s spring. I like to play old games again. Cricket and soccer are lots of fun. In summer we can do all this And play out in the sun. And soon the leaves are falling down. And time for rugby ' s drawing near In Autumn the whole school turns out, To watch the games and cheer. In Winter there is lots of snow. And old Jack Frost on window plays. I sit beside a roaring fire. And read old tales of bygone days. Ali II, Form I. 96 THE ASHBURIAN SPRING WHEN Spring comes, the flowers will pop out of bed. The grass will turn green, and the trees will turn green too. The sun will get much warmer. The birds will make their nests, and the farmers will be able to plant their crops. And the wasps and bees will buzz around and around and sting very much. The lakes and rivers that were frozen will be able to flow freely again. Starnes, Form I THE EXPLOSION DURING the war, in 1945, a great explosion occurred, in which many people were killed. It happened that a train was going to leave the freight-yards with a load of explosives. There was a non-auto- matic switch on the track the train was to go along. The switch was rather rusty as it had not been used for years and it could not be turned easily. Now the switch happened to be turned the wrong way, and the men did not know it. The train was due to pass there in an hour, and the men just took their time over everything. Suddenly someone shouted, " Here comes the train " ! Immediately all the men leaped clear of the track. Then one man noticed the switch and called to the others to help him. Some came running, others didn ' t. They tried to swing the switch, but it would not move. Finally, one of the men said, " We had better get out of the way, or we will be run over by the train " . They all jumped out of the way but one man, who tripped on the rail and was stunned. The train drove with such force against the switch that the load of ammunition exploded. The damage was awful; over sixteen were killed and five injured. This was one of the greatest tragedies in the year of 1945. Hutchinson, Form IIIB. ANTHONY THE CHIPiMUNK ONCE upon a time there was a little chipmunk called Anthony. He was a very greedy little chipmunk. One day Anthony ' s father was very angry with him because he had eaten all the nuts in the house, which had been hidden for the winter. His father was so angry with him he gave poor Anthony a nice big spanking. Anthony went into the kitchen, grabbed another mouthful of nuts, and started off down the little path which led into the woods. (Of course he was going to run away). He had gone at least a mile, when a big brown fox spotted him. He crept up behind poor Anthony and then suddenly seized him. The fox took him to a great big cave in the side of the mountain. Then THE ASHBURIAN 97 the greedy fox said, " I am going to eat you for my supper " . This frightened poor Anthony. Several hours went by which Anthony spent crying for his father. Now very near the mouth of the cave was a hunter. When he heard the noise, he went inside the cave. No sooner had he put one foot inside the cave than the fox jumped at him. But the hunter hit the fox on the head with the butt of his gun and the fox lay dead on the ground. When the hunter saw poor Anthony lying on the floor, he picked him up. Anthony was so afraid that the hunter might hurt him, that he kicked and kicked until the hunter let him go. Anthony knew his way home very well. In about an hour he crept into his own home. His father was so pleased to see him he kissed and kissed him. Later on in the day Anthony said to his father, " I will never run away again " . And he never did. B. Stirling-Hamilton, Form II T.

I THE ASHBURIAN 99 THE RIDING CLUB A t the beginning of the year it seemed as if the Riding Club, which Xjl had operated so successfully in the past, was in for a bad season. Our good friend Sgt. E. A. iVlargetts had been forced to move from his happily convenient location to one which was, unfortunately, out of our reach. This left us with no horses. However, our activities were soon resumed at Teskey ' s, where we were fortunate to find horses, suitable for all classes of riders. Our annual show is to take place this spring with two trophies to be presented; the Commander and Mrs. W. G. Ross Cup and the Mrs. C. L. Ogden Glass Cup for the best rider, and the most improved rider, respectively. Again, many thanks are due to Col. E. G. Brine for the excellent coaching and the many hours he gave so freely and without consider- ation for himself. I.G.S.
