BOYD 9 I THE ASHBURIAN 9 EDITGRIAL 'r 'mls early time of writing, winter's sullen tale is told, and spring, the troubadour, has slipped almost imperceptiblv into his coloured coat and strings his jocund lute. Although the Season marks, chronologically, the latter end of a school year, it seems, spiritually, to be rather a beginning. lt is now that we begin to make plans for the coming year, to precur its promises for those who stay and those who go. The whole impulse of the season seems vigorously forward, rather than nostalgically or remorsefully backward. Let us by all means look forward. VVhat if the barred gate of examination does intervene, and tends, like the smoke of Hannibal's campfires, to obscure the view? We can stand on tip-toe, can't we? or fervently kneeling peek between the bars? or, from the supine position even, peer upward? However, as our history master tells us Cwith a sneer and a twinklel that we can evaluate the future only by an intelligent interpretation of the past, let us look briefiy backward also-over the passing school year. At this time twelve months ago we were dedicating the magazine to our departing headmaster, C. L. Ogden Glass, who was leaving to take over another school. At the opening last September we welcomed our new headmaster, Ronald H. Perry, to whom this present issue is dedicated. Mr. Perry received his early education at Bishop Ridley College, St. Catharines, from there he migrated for a year to Dean Close School, Cheltenham, England, then back again to St. Catharines Collegiate and thence to The Central Collegiate Institute in Hamilton, where he took junior and Senior Matriculations. He is a B.A. of University of Toronto, and M.A. Columbia CTeachers, Collegej. He came to us from a succession of distinguished assignments both in war and peace. For some thirteen years he taught at Pickering Col- lege, Newmarket. During the war he served with the R.C.A.F. in North Africa. Immediately before coming here he held the office of Dean of Residence of Ajax, a post war department of the University of Toronto. VVe therefore feel that he has rendered distinguished service as both administrator and organizer, and psychologist and educator. XYe would like to add that in his brief time here he has amply lived up to his PQISI record in these capacities. VVe wish him luck and continued success. THE ASHBURIAN I A -, , K . 5. fl fifty! f fi ' . bi- , YN X .e. - . THE ASHBURIAN ll SCHOOL NCJTES N XVLIIJNI-ISDAY, September 13th the school ofiicially opened for the 1950-il year. As usual, the halls were swarming with boys, both old and new. lfverybody was interrogating everybody else, but few answers were received. lland shaking and back slapping were the order of the day. The thing that struck most of us was the redecorating which had taken place during the holidays. Conducted tours were quickly arranged and the interior of the school was given the once or twice over. Before the hustle and bustle had quicted down, the chapel service began, and soon the most remote corners of the school were filled with, "Lord behold us with Thy blessing," and, "He who would valiant be." The scene then shifted to the newly decorated Rhodes Hall, where our new Headmaster, Mr. R. H. Perry, assured us that we were going to have a top notch year. The faces of his audience beamed with appro- val as he announced the plans and the changes for the coming year. The afternoon was devoted to dividing the new bovs into the two school houses, and the election of the games captains. Although the opening of the new Tuck Shop did not take place on this opening day, we feel it deserves mention at this time. Un Klon- day, September 18, Hr. Perry, armed with a pair of garden shears, cut a length of red ribbon to oflicially open the tuck shop for business. E71f67'fi1f777l167Il' This year, as in the past, we had our usual allotment of house dances. Several changes, however, were made in the running of these dances and we feel that they were made for the good. The dining-room was abandoned as a dance floor and Rhodes Hall was used in its place. The tuck shop was opened to serve refreshments. We also had a master of ceremonies in Bill Weeks. May our thanks be expressed here to Mr. and Mrs. Brain and Nlr. Belcher, who so kindly played the role of hosts and hostess, at these dances. Movies were again shown this year under the auspices of Nlr. Sibley. Q The standard of movies shown was as always of the highest grade. Several extra movies were shown throughout the year and deserve 12 THE ASHBURIAN special mention. They were "Pride and Prejudice" and "Scenes from julius Caesar," both shown primarily for the Senior division English class. In the Autumn term we had two parties, the Hallowe'en party and the Christmas party. The Hallowe'en party featured a movie and refreshments as well as the members of g,,,,,m,, the junior school, displaying costumes f- fxfg rj suitable to the occasion. The Christmas If FQ x -A party also had movies but the big attrac- qc- -N tion of the evening was the visit of Santa 4 7 xXx Claus. A good rousing sing-song was on xr W X mul the programme and our thanks go to k , gh... john Gill for providing the music. Bill ki v ff' VVeeks read a Christmas story and the ,WI gi 'ffl if Prefects had something to say about the K, its Staff. The last but by no means the least . lhllljw event on the evening's programme was , , 1 our old friend Mr. Gliver and his very P ' 'r " 9- ' - able assistant. Mr. Perry acted as a master of ceremonies. On NVednesday, April 11th, we again welcomed the Temple Choir of Ottawa. The choir presented a programme well suited to the occasion. Mr. Davis confused the audience with some marvellous sleight of hand magic and Mr. Oliver and friend gave the evening a comic Havour in their usual manner. The parents were also in on a form of entertainment this year as the parents receptions were again held. At these receptions the parents saw such things as movies provided by Mr. Sibley, a gym display by a squad under the direction of Capt. Higgs and a demonstration of wire- less by the Signal Squad of our Cadet Corps. H ealtb Again this year the health of the school has been excellent. In spite of the Hu epidemic which swept the country Miss MacLaughlin and Mrs. Row were able to keep the school on its feet by administering the potions for which they are famous. Uur heartfelt thanks go to the health department for a healthy year. llictctics l'The way to a man's heart is through his stomach". As always Miss Burroughs has found the way, and Miss MacLaughlin's weight book should back up our statement that the waist line of the school has expanded. THE ASHBURIAN 1 14 THE ASHBURIAN FOUNDER'S ADDRESS The following is the text of an address to the School by our Founder, the Reverend Canon VVoollcombe, three days after opening day. It is always a pleasure to have Doctor VVoollcombe visit us at Ashbury and to see him looking, as he always does, so hale and hearty and vigorous. XV e realize, too, that out of his years of experience as head- master of Ashbury and out of his great interest in the welfare of the school, his words of advice to us are valuable words. VVe hope he may pay us another visit soon. Mr. Headmaster, Members of the Staff, Prefects and Boys of Ashbury: It was very kind of the Headmaster to let me have the privilege of coming down to Ashbury and of saying a few words of congratula- tion and of good wishes for this new School Year. And from all that I have gathered, Ashbury has re-opened and is commencing another Term, under very satisfactory conditions. The School is practically full, the Buildings have been thoroughly renovated, and a good deal of new School furniture has been installed. VVe have lost Mr. Glass, our former Head, who is now in charge of his late School, Bishop's College School, where he was a Senior Prefect. He was a distinguished Graduate of Bishop's College, a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, and then, an Assistant Master at Bishopls College School. During the Hve years he was Headmaster of Ashbury, he was liked and respected by Masters and Boys. He was an excellent disci- plinarian, and, too, he had the complete confidence of the Parents of the Boys. But the Governors of Ashbury have been very fortunate in secur- ing the services of Mr. Perry to take the place of Mr. Glass. And the Governors of Ashbury feel quite confident that Mr. Perry will reveal himself as an ideal Head. He is already liked and respected by the Staff and by the Boys. And, too, l feel sure that his powers of discipline, his sound judgment, his strict justice in dealing with all those over whose care and direction he has been placed-yes, these essential qualities that he undoubtedly possesses, will, very soon be widely recognised and appreciated. And whether on the part of the Staff, the Boys of the School or by the Parents or Guardians of the Boys, it will surely be said of Mr. Perry, even if in School-boy talk, "He is O.K." or, in more sedate language "He is proving a most successful Headmaster." And may I express to each member of the Staff whether male or female my sincere wishes for a happy and a very successful term. L I THE ASHBURIAN 15 And, as I have already intimated, I can congratulate Ashbury upon the large number of New Boys, that have come to us this term. As I have said so often, when speaking to the School at the beginning of a new School Year, all these New Boys are looking to you, who have been here for some time, and they are watching very carefully to see what kind of attitude you are adopting. If you, Senior Boys, observe the School regulations and the various rules, the New Boys will tend to do so also. If you work hard, both in and out of School, they will tend to do likewise. If they see on your part a spirit of politeness and of con- sideration for others, in a very short time, the new boys will be trying to follow in your steps. And the result will be that both old and new boys will be contributing something towards the steady growth of the School, and to its reputation as one of the best Schools in this Dominion of Canada. And may I give you another thought or suggestion? As regards your studies here, whatever they may be, get into your stride just as soon as possible. In other words, "Begin right now to work hard". This first term is a very important one. If, during this Hrst term, there is a tendency to be sQack in your studies, then you will feel the results of your slackness right throughout this School Year. May I then urge upon each one of you to do your very best as regards your various studies during the whole of this first term. For to do this, will make it so much the easier for you during the remainder of this School year. Again, for the sake of those boys who have just become members of Ashbury, may I state that this School was founded in 1891 CS 9 years agoj, and it was called Ashbury because an estate in Devon in England had, for a number of generations, belonged to the VVoollcombe family. Unfortunately that large and stately House has now been pulled down, the extensive grounds have been divided into lots, and are being sold. And so the original Ashbury is now no more. But, now, in this VVestern VVorld, and in the Capital of this great Dominion, there is another Ashbury. And, like the English Ashbury, may this one last for many, many years, and prove increasingly to have been the means of bringing to a large number of Canadian Boys, physically, mentally and spiritually real advancement. May I again remind you, that Ashbury Boys have always been marked by politeness, by a sense of honour, of truthfulness, and by giving promise of real success in their after School career. So you have before you a great and a I-Iigh Ideal, and may God grant that during the time you spend at Ashbury, you will Cas I have saidj contribute some- thing that will help the School's reputation as one of the best Schools in Canada. I 16 THE ASHBURIAN And mav I again wish you, Sir, our Headmaster, his Staff and all those Bovs that have been committed to your care, may I wish you all a very happy and a most successful School Year. And, as the Founder of Ashbury, and because I wish the new Headmastership of Mr. Perry to be duly celebrated, may I ask that you will give the School a Half-Holiday at such a date, that you may con- sider a suitable one, but a date not in the too distant future. --1-cal RHODES HALL His year the school received a very handsome gift from Mr. E. N. Rhodes in the redecoration of the old Assembly Hall. This class- room is now appropriately called Rhodes Hall. The redecoration was extensive and all the students received it in a most grateful manner. The whole room is done in a robins egg blue with an adequate battery of fluorescent lights. New desks were also supplied, and the Hoor received a coat of linoleum. All in all this is a beautiful gift from one of our most faithful old boys and we would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Rhodes for his generosity in helping to make this school a more pleasant place to live in. D Wpvlwq NWMMMU, .fr .,,. , ,,,,,,., ,W .... . .. , ., Hanging in Rhodes Hall is a painting of our Founder, Canon G. P. IYoollcombe. This por- trait was painted by an old boy, Bob Hyndman, and presented by the old boys, as what we consider a marvellous memento of a great man in the history of Ashbury College. It was unveiled at a very impressivc little cere- mony on November llth. THE f1SHBL'1Cl.-IX E. N. RHODES, ESQ., Deputy Chairman of thc Board of Governors ,S THE ASHBURIAN 1 1 iin . CHAPEL NOTES HAPIQL services this year have improved. There have been short services weekday mornings, and matins and evensong on Sundays. This session We have also had an 8.30 a.m. Holy Communion service once a month, with others on special occasions. The Headmaster has given addresses in the Chapel on September 24th, December 3rd, and on April 8th, Other Senior members of the staff who have given addresses are: Oct. 15th-Mr. Brain-"The Gospel for the Day" Nov. 19th-Mr. Sibley-t'Fishers of Men" Feb. llth-Mr. Belcher-"Goodwill" May 13th-Mr. Drayton-"Tolerancef' XVC have also been pleased to welcome the following guests:- jan. 14th-Canon G. P. Vlfoollcombe-the Founder jan. Zlst-Canon I-l. G. Cook, Director of Indian Schools Feb. 35th-Rev. XY. D. Christie, Rector of All Saints, lVestboro April 29th-Rev. Terrence Finlay, Rector, St. johns Church, Ottawa. On Sunday, October 29th, we paid our annual visit to St. Bar- fl1UlOIllCXViS Church. Rev. A. T. Carson conducted the service assisted by our Chaplain. 7 On Saturday, Nov. llth, the Annual Service of Remembrance was held in the Chapel. The lesson was read by Captain XY. G. Ross, R.C.N., retiring President of the Old Boys' Association. Canon XYoollconibe read the Roll of llonour, and the Chaplain conducted the service. THE ASHBURIAN 19 Immediately after this service, the Unveiling of the Founders Portrait took place in Rhodes llall. The Prayer of Dedication was given by the Chaplain, and Mr. R. ll. Craig, President of the Montreal Old Boys' Association, and Mr. lf. N. Rhodes, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Governors assisted at the Ceremony. The Old Boys' Chapel service was held on Sunday, Nov. 12th. At this service, Nlr. D. K. MacTavish, O.B.L1., K.C., Chairman of the Board of Governors read the lesson and the sermon was preached bv the Founder. i On the last Sunday evening of the Fall Term, we had our Annual Candlelight Carol Service. At this time, the Choir made its first appear- ance in their new robes which had been made by the Mother's Guild. The attendance at this service was so great that the service was repeated for the boys who could not attend on XYednesday, Dec. Zlst. As usual, the Chapel was lit entirely by Candlelight. The Choir sang some new carols which we had not heard before, and the congregation joined in the ever fresh, old familiar ones. On March 19th, we held our Annual Confirmation Service con- ducted by the Lord Bishop of Ottawa. Assisting him were the Founder, Canon XVoollcombe, Rev. A. T. Carson, Rector of St. Bartholomews, Rev. VV. D. Christie, Rector of All Saints', Rev. C. Anderson, Diocesan Secretary who acted as the Bishops Chaplain, and our own Chaplain. Mention of this service is made elsewhere in the magazine. On May 28th, the Cadet Corps paraded with the Governor General's Foot Guards to Christ Church Cathedral. During the season of Lent, the Chaplain gave a series of short addresses on XVednesday mornings based on the Collect for the Week. VVe have been pleased to note the increase in the number of Parents and visitors at our Services. Elmwood has also attended quite regularly, and we are delighted to have them. Immediately after Easter, Elmwood presented us with two new Altar Vases which were dedicated on Sunday, April 22nd by the Chap- lain. At this time we were also pleased to have a Processional Cross dedicated. This Cross was made by Mr. XV. T. Sibley, the father of our Organist. Mention is made elsewhere in this issue of the Choir, but at this point we should say that their singing has improved greatly, and has added much to the brightness, and colour of our services. The Chapel Staff who have been responsible for the eflicient operation of the Chapel have been the Chaplain, with Nlr. L. H. Sibley as Organist and Choirmaster, and Allan McCulloch. senior Chapel Clerk, and Pierre LeBoutillier and XYilliam Lee asa.-Xssistant Chapel Clerks. L ell. Rev. W. j. Belford, C. LeBoutillier, Mr. L.

Accordingly, on Nlonday, October 16th, 1950, the first Choir practice was held. All the boys in the junior School had previously had a voice test, and the best voices were chosen. The members of the choir at the outset were: P. Angrave Drew j. Milbank j. Angrave T. Fauquier P. Murphy D. Baird G. Gorrie Powell P. Barkway Hamill G. Roger P. Blakeney S. Hamilton K. Stephen M. Bogert Hopkins Spencer K. Cook P. Ince M. Sutherland P. Curry T. Kerr O. Zeitz N. Darwent R. McCulloch C. P. R. LeBoutillier-Crucifer The first formal appearance of the choir in the chancel was at the Carol Service on Sunday evening, December 10th. At that time the choir surplices, cassocks, and ruffles had been completed by the Ash- bury Mother's Guild, and the Choir appeared fully robed. They sang the normal Christmas carols such as: "'Twas in the moon of winter- time", and "Deck the Halls", and they were fortunate to be able to sing a Polish Carol, "The Little Green Fir Treel' for the first time it had ever been sung in Canada. Since Christmas, the Choir have been in attendance at every Sun- da mornin service, and this has been a reat source of encouragement Y g S H . , to the Chapel as a whole. jon Spencer has sung two solos: The Lord s Prayer" by A. H. Xlalotte, and "The Palms" by Faure. Choir practices have been held each week, and slowly the Choir are learning to sing the beautiful parts of the Anglican Church Service. At our first service after Easter, we used our new processional Cross for the first time. The Choir has had a good year, and as time goes by. it should become a traditional part of the College Chapel. The Organist and Choirmaster has been Mr. L. H. Sibley. 22 THE ASHBURIAN CONFIRMATION VERY impressive service was held in the school chapel on Monday evening, March 19th. This was the Confirmation Service. This vear there was one of the largest lists of candidates which have been presented in a number of years. There were Hfteen boys confirmed. Ciflieiating at the service was The Right Reverend Robert Jeffer- son, D.D., D.C.L., Lord Bishop of Ottawa. During the service His Lordship gave a short address in which he complimented uthe suitably garbed choir" under the direction of Mr. Sibley. His Lordship gave some very sound advice to the candidates on the subject of Christian Character. He told the boys of the four things they should do in order to be good christians. Honour God, be obedient to God, love God and give your youth to God. He made a point of showing the boys how to remember these four things. He said, "Since this is the Hrst of Holy VV:-zek, we can remember the four things which we must give to God in the following way: Honour Obedience Love Youth." His Lordship then administered the Sacrament of "The Laying on of Hands" to the Hfteen candidates, this was followed by the blessing and the resounding singing of the School Hymn, "He who would Valiant be." We are happy to announce that his Lordship is now on the Board of Governors of the school and we hope he will visit us often. The assisting Clergy were: Canon G. P. lVoollcombe, NLA., L.L.D., Founder of Ashbury College, Rev. C. Anderson, B.A., Diocesan Secretary, Rev. A. T. Carson, M.A., B.D., Rector of St. Bartholomew's, Ottawa, Rev. XV. D. M.

At that time we were fortunate in having two guest speakers. Nlr. A. B. Bowville, of the Rockcliffe Heather Station, spoke on "Heather and the Airplane", and Commander ll. Little spoke on "The Relationship Between Science and Naval Education". Between these two talks we had an excellent film "XYeather". The speakers were introduced by Hans Luyken and Xlr. Brain, and were thanked by the Chairman of the Club. The second meeting of the Club was held on Tuesday. November 21st, 1950. Douglas McLean of 6A was the guest speaker of the evening. His subject was "Nlinerals". In his talk he discussed the common types of minerals found in Canada, and showed samples of them to illustrate his topic. The first film for this meeting was "The Face of Time", which showed how our first geologists with the simplest instruments and under the most primitive conditions, pioneered in the field of charting Canada's minerals. The film concluded by showing how a modern geological survey is undertaken. The second film of the even- ing "The Gift of T'Sai Lun-Paper", gave us a comprehensive story of how paper is made, from the cutting of pulpwood to the finished pro- duct. The third film, "Magnesium-Xletal from the Sea", showed how magnesium is recovered from sea water, and the new uses to which this metal may be put. The third formal meeting of the Club took place on Tuesday, january 30th. Our speaker at that time was Mr. P. H. Lee, B.A., one of our staff, who spoke on the subject "Air Navigation". This talk was backed up by many personal experiences which Mr. Lee had as a mem- ber of the Royal Air Force. On the same programme we had some excellent films including "Principles of Flight", "Plastics In Colour" and one of a series entitled "Birds of Canada". There was also an excellent short entitled "Prophet Without Honour", which told of the charting of the seas by a former LYS. Sea Captain. Besides our formal meetings, we have had several other attractions during the term. On November 25th, a group of Senior Students made a trip through the Canadian International Paper Company at Gatineau Point. Here we were escorted through the large Newsprint Xlill, where we saw the complete processing from wood chips to the finished news- print rolling off the huge paper machines. This trip was arranged by Mr. Sibley through the cooperation of an Ashbury Cld Boy. On Friday, February 2nd, the Senior Students were invited to the Annual Student Night of the Chemical Institute of Canada. The speaker of the evening was Mr. A. Monsaroff, Vice President of Nlonsanto CCanadaJ Limited, who spoke on the topic "The Game of Chemistry". 24 THE ASHBUIUAN ln his address, he stressed the importance of character as well as aca- demic brilliance as necessary characteristics for advancement in the Chemical Held of endeavour. He also gave a full account of the various types of work done by all those engaged in the Chemical Field, whether Engineers, Chemists, Draughtsmen or Maintenance Men. Two films were shown at this meeting- "Test Tube to Tank Car" and "Produc- tivity-Key to Plenty". These were much enjoyed and after refresh- ments supplied by the Institute, we returned to the School after an excellent evening. On january 20th, members of the Club went on a tour of the Gatineau Power Plant. Here we saw the development of electricity by the use of the large horizontal generators, and the principles of their operation was carefully explained. lt gave one an odd sensation to be under the Chaudiere Falls looking up at the large turbines used to run the generators. The Science Club has had a busy and useful year, and one which has proved interesting to all concerned. The Chairman has been William NVeeks, with Pierre LeBoutillier as projectionist, and Mr. Sibley as Staff Advisor in charge of programmes and arrangements. The Science Club Trip to Cornwall N THURSDAY afternoon, February 15th, eleven boys from the Senior School, under the capable leadership of the Senior Science Master, Mr. Sibley, caught the bus to Cornwall for a week-end excur- sion, which proved to be one that will not soon be forgotten. Upon arrival, we checked in at the King George Hotel, and then went out for a bite to eat. With the exception of Pierre, "Boots" LeBoutillier, who insisted emphatically that he could fix the Television set, in the hotel, the group retired at an early hour, looking forward with keen anticipation for what the morrow would bring. Friday morning after a hurried but excellent breakfast, we were bundled into a trolley bus and taken over to the Howard Smith Paper Mill. lncidentally, l think those buses were a wonderful invention. Per- haps when one can be made that will bend around Confusion Square, Ottawa will get them too. XVC spent three hours at the Howard Smith Paper Mill. Before our tour, Mr. C. Candee, the Assistant General Manager of the Mill, and Mr. H. Morrison, the Personnel Manager, addressed the students in the conference room. On our f0llI', we were shown the entire process of making fine grade papers. This included the Barking Plant, the Sulphite Mill, the Soda Mill, the Lignin Plant, the Vanillin Plant, the Chlorine Plant, and the large Paper Mill, the latter consisting of 4 paper machines daily producing ISO tons of fine THE ASHBURIAN 25 paper such as bond, book, writing, litho, mimeograph, blotting, bristol, as well as paper board. The entire plant, we realized, was fairly self sufficient. as it contained all the necessary parts for complete operation. Of particular interest was the large research Labor- atory connected with the Nlill. Here we were shown many of the routine tests used on the products as well as some of the line delicate instruments used in research. At the completion of our tour, we returned to the conference room and asked questions concerning those things which we had seen, but found difficulty in understanding. w From the Paper Nlill, after a slight pause at the Hotel for cokes and clean up, we went on to Courtaulds CCanadaj Limited, manufacturers of rayon, where we spent the afternoon. Before the tour commenced however, we were served an excellent dinner in their pleasant dining room, followed by a complete explanation of the making and dyeing of rayon by Mr. D. Roberts, the Technical Superintendent of the Plant, and the father of john. Rayon, we found, was made from sulphite pulp steeped in caustic soda, after which carbon disulphide was added, and the viscose was obtained from the resulting cellulose xanthate. This viscose is then forced through platinum jets into an acid coagulating bath, and so the rayon is manufactured. We found that there were three types of rayon being made: textile yarn, tire yarn and staple libre. I feel that it is necessary to mention a slight mishap which might have occurred to Andy Pritchard, if it had not been for the quick thinking of his tour supervisor. Suffice it to say that it would probably have been enjoyable. After the tour of the plant, Mr. Roberts then invited the group over to his home for refreshments, for which we were deeply grateful. It made another very pleasant highlight of the trip. Then on Friday evening after a fine dinner, we were free to have some further entertainment. Some went to the theatre, some to the Automobile show, while others attended a dance. A few even went off to hed! Andrew was a great help at this time to one of the occupants of the Hotel, for which he was duly Z rewarded. Again when all had returned Z to the Hotel we thought that it was about time to have something to eat as we had not eaten for all of a couple of hours. Saturday morning found us at the Canadian Cotton Klills, where we had a two hour tour, and then were enter- 26 THE ASHBURIAN tained in the Cafeteria. Again before we started on our tour, the plant processes were explained to us in detail. At this Mill, we witnessed the complete manufacture of cotton goods, from the raw cotton staple to the yarn stage, and finally to the finished products such as blankets, awning cloth, suiting cloth, and other material. Wie were addressed at the end of the tour by Mr. Millichamp, Assistant Manager of the Cana- dian Cottons Plants. Everyone of us marvelled at the speed and efficiency of these plants we had visited. It will always be a source of wonder to me, that one man could handle so much and not become confused, because in all three plants that we visited, there was a noticeable scarcity of workers. Indeed, in many parts of each building, one man would control a whole room full of whirring machines, and all important pressure gauges. This sight repeated before us many times, impressed upon our minds very clearly the fact that it appeared that Canada has gone very far in her technological advances. XVe returned to Ottawa by suppertime on Saturday night, after a most educational, instructive and enjoyable tour. Mention should possibly be made of Ian MacLaren's sharpness in travelling technique. Much credit is due to Mr. Sibley for his organization, and all those in Cornwall who helped so much to make this trip so fine. Those making the trip were: Younger I, Foulkes, Pritchard, Luyken, Macliwan, McLean, Irwin, MacLaren, LeBoutillier, Roberts and Bryce. CERCLE FRANCAIS NFoR'rUNA'rEI.Y, due to pressure of other matters in the school, the Cercle Francais was unable to meet more than once this year. However, this was augmented by a weekly period C40 minutesl throughout the school year, devoted solely to the speaking of French. The meeting was held on September 29th, at 7.30 p.m. The club, which is under the direction of Mr. Brain, showed a large increase in attendance over previous years. VVe moved in a body to the Little Elgin where we saw an extremely good French film, "La Belle et la Bere". Afterwards, we returned to Mr. Brain's house, where coffee, sand- wiches and cakes were served. Our thanks are due to both Mr. and Mrs. Brain for making this meeting so enjoyable. THE ASHBURIAN 27 THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB HIC International Relations Club held two meetings this year under the able direction of Nlr. Polk. The first meeting was held on the thirteenth of October at seven-thirty. The main business of the evening was election of officers, and john Fraser, lan Scott and B. Genesove were elected as President, Vice President, and Recording Secretary respectively. Following this, documentary films were shown by Nlr. Sibley, dealing with recent history such as the Second XVorld XVar. One film dealt with the progress of the XVar in Furope from the invasion of Normandy to the final surrender of Germany. The next meeting was a mock political convention. This was held with Xlr. R. Sumner in the chair, on a Friday in the last half of the winter term. Various proposals were made and discussed for the party platform, and the evening ended with the election of a new leader. The five candidates were joe Gimenez, Diego Nlendez, Gerald Rheinderhofi, Frank Penaloza, and Fransisco Carreno. Diego Nlendez won the election on the fourth ballot, with 25 out of 45 votes. The evening was a great success, and many thanks are due to Nlr. Polk and Klr. Belford for their assistance. THE MUSIC CLUB HE first meeting of the newly formed Nlusic Club took place on Tuesday, November l-lth, at the College, when we were privileged to see a group of movies. The first film was an excellent one, based on the life of jean Sibelius, the great Finnish composer. Throughout this picture we saw excerpts from his IUHG poem "Finlandia", and "The Swan of Tuonelan. The second film was a March of Time on "Music in America". This film featured such personalities as Xlarion Anderson. Composer George Gershwin, Bandsman Benny Goodman, Violinist Mischa Elman, and Conductor Serge Koussevitsky. The film showed how jazz was derived from Negro folk music, and how great American composers like George Gershwin got their inspirations from the popular idiom of their time. The third and final film was "Instruments of the Orchestra". In this film the famous British conductor. Dr. Nlalcolm Sargent, acted as commentator, demonstrated the sound of each instru- ment and then conducted the London Symphony Orchestra in Benja- min Britten's "Variation and Fugue on a Theme". by Purcell. 28 THE ASHBURIAN On December lst, 1950, the Music ,Club assembled at the home of Mrs. Barwick. The purpose of this gathering was to hear Mrs. Barwick play the harpsichord. She began by telling us how the harpsichord had been derived from the psaltery, virginal and spinnet. To illustrate the virginal music, she played a piece composed by VVilliam Bird in 1612. After this brief, but most interesting description, Mrs. Barwick went on to play selections from the masters of each country where the harpsichord was popular. First, she took a piece by Purcell of England, secondly, she took some descriptive selections by Couperin of France, which included: 'LLes Tricoteuses". She also included "Tambourrin", composed by Rameau. Thirdly, she played two pieces from Italy coma posed by Scarlati, and lastly Mrs. Barwick took some selections from Germany, where the harpsichord music reached its peak. From Germany she played one piece by Handel, and then three short preludes by Bach. ln conclusion she played us some short excerpts by the modern composer Francis Poulene. VVhen this wonderful recital was finished, we left Mrs. Barwick's house feeling that we knew much more about the harpsichord than we had done previously, and we left very grateful to have had the opportunity of such an educational, and inspiring evening. Un Tuesday evening, February 13th, the Music club was especially fortunate to have as its guest Mrs. Ruth Perry Hamilton, the mother of an Ashbury boy and a very distinguished Folk song singer. Mrs Hamil- ton is better known in England where she performed regularly with the B.B.C. and appeared with Sir Henry Wood and Sir Benjamin Dale on several occasions. She was King's Medallist of the Royal Academy of Music. Interspersing her songs with a connected talk on the development of folk ballads, Mrs. Hamilton won us all over with her naturalness and friendly charm. ln the short time available, the audience was lifted on the magic carpet of Song and carried through England, Scotland, lreland, Denmark, Czechoslovakia, Germany and America. lVe crossed the years from the wandering gypsies of the twelfth century to the comparatively recent folk music of the United States. Mrs. Hamilton was introduced by the Chairman of the Music Club, lan Scott, and thanked by the Club's Staff Advisor, Mr. Sibley. Also on the same pro- gramme we were happy to have two films. The first was entitled "Steps of the Ballet", which showed us the different stages of a ballet, from the basic positions and movements to the finished performance. These were explained for us by the famous dancer Robert Hclpmann. The second hlm was a short one featuring the Toronto Symphony Orchestra playing the third Movement of Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony in B Xlinor. The committee responsible for the operation of this club have been lan Scott as Chairman, Mr. Sibley as Staff Advisor, assisted by Mr. Drayton, Graham jackson acted as our reporter. 'I HE .JSHBURIAN Iv THE SKI CLUB Ni-iw function was added to .-Xsliliiirfs winter sports this year, that of a Ski Club. The Club was formed by boys of all ages and the only qualification one had to present to become a member was a keen desire to ski. Our Headmaster obtained a cabin for the club, which was situated only a short forty minute hike from Camp Fortune itself. lt was divided into four rooms. three of which were used for sleeping quarters, and the fourth as eommon room and mess hall. lt was equipped with two stoves and sixteen bunks. Needless to say of course the sixteen bunks were slept in regularly on week-ends of skiing weather. A committee was formed by the fellows in the club and the cabin was extremely well managed through- out the season. johns' Fripp was hired as an instructor for the Ski Club aswell as the school's Ski Team and many of the members of both groups profited greatly from his instruction. We would like to thank Xlr. Perry for taking such an interest in our skiing and for helping us the way he did by getting our club started. Our thanks are also due to Xlr. Polk for his co-operation in helping us make the arrangements without which our ski trips would have been impossible. 1 ,U THE ASHBURIAN THE PGETRY READING CONTEST AMES XYRr:FoRD, Canadian poet of the admirable "Of Time and the Lover", kindly agreed to be our adjudicator this year. The contest was held in the school chapel, and proved a most rewarding perform- ance-if only because there were twice as many contestants as last year, when the contest was inaugurated. The Senior School competitors read Edward Thomas, "SWedes,' as their set piece, the junior School, Christina Rossetti's "Uphill". The unseen passages were respectively, Herbert's "The Pulley" and XVilde's "Requiescat". The Middle School read the junior set piece and the Senior unseen. ln addition each boy read a passage of his own choosing. Dr. XYreford expressed great amazement and pleasure at the number of contestants and at the high quality of their renditions. He found it most diflicult to choose two prize winners, therefore it was decided to award three prizes. liven so, the third prize had to be split, because of a tie. The winners were: lst prize, presented by Prof. A. Edinborough of Queen's Univers- ity-j. Fraser. 2nd prize, to be named in honour of Dr. TYreford, the XYreford Prize-S. lYoollcombe. 3rd prize, presented by C. C. Dayton-D. Alexandor and T. Finlay. XYQ are most grateful to Dr. XVreford for his interest and good judgment.

Actually, as events turned out we were not as successful in our scheduled games as we had hoped that we might be, as we lost posses- sion of The Ashbury Old Boys Cup to l3ishop's. However, there were no walk-aways against us, all games were vigorously played and quite closely contested, and we did have the satisfaction of registering a win against l,ower Canada College-the first in several years. FIRST BISI li DRS CIANIIC in-3 rirst game of the home and home series was played on October 7th, at l3.C.S. It was a clear dav with next to no breeze. .Xt the first of the game l3.CQ.S. pushed deep into the Red, Green and XYhite's territory but were stopped, and Ross kicked a single point. .-Xshbury elected to receive and a run by Pritchard and a series of short passes over centre to john Gill and l.uke XYells put the visitors in scoring position, and Don Brown took advantage of the situation and THE ASHBURIAN 35 made a quarterback sneak for five points. Sobie missed the convert. This ended the hrst quarter. The second quarter saw very little scoring, but a lot of good play was witnessed by all. The play moved from one end of the Held to the other. Les Cardinal almost intercepted a pass which might have put Ashbury on the road. And the B.C.S. line kept breaking' through and nearly breaking up the plays before they got started. lflventually B.C.S. made a drive and this drive concluded with a pass from McCulloch to Badger for a touchdown. NlcCulloch missed the convert but this still gave the Lennoxville squad a one point lead. The score at half time was 6-5. The third quarter, and indeed the rest of the game, saw very little scoring, but both teams were all out and the quality of football played was of a high standard. B.C.S. started a drive with a series of end sweeps by Bevans Giles under an excellent blocking barrage. Giles was rewarded when he finally crossed the goal line. This touchdown was converted, and the B.C.S. squad had piled up quite a lead which, in the end, proved too much for the Ashbury I2 to overcome. However in the 4th and last quarter Andy Pritchard cut around the right end and made a gain of about 35 yards. This was followed by Cardinal taking the ball through a big hole in the centre of the line for another 25 yards to put the ball on the B.C.S. two yard line. Don Brown again scored on a quarterback sneak. The convert was again missed and the scoring for the day was over. Ashbury nearly scored in the last minutes of play, but they lost the ball on downs and soon after the game ended. Giles, Ross, and McCulloch played well for the B.C.S. lsts, and Cardinal, Pritchard, Brown and Evan Gill stood out for the Red, XYhite and Green. Final Score - B.C.S. 12 - Ashbury 10. SECOND BISHOITS GAN l li HE First Rugby Team of Bishop's College School defeated on October 2 lst, Ashbury's first squad by a score of I7-I 1. The game was played at Ashbury, under cloudy skies with a slight but cool breeze blowing. The Lennoxville team elected to receive the opening kick-off. A sequence of three quick plays, Qshort passes over centrej put the Bishop's team in a scoring position. Bevans Giles swept the left end for the first score of the game. Alike XlcCulloch drop kicked for the convert making the score Bishop's 6 Ashbury 0. Ashbury received the following kick- off and the rest of the quarter saw the two teams evenly marched and no further scoring. During the first of the second quarter an Ashbury fumble put Bishops in a touchdown position. Soutar hit into the left side of the line and crossed the goal line for five points.

Ashbury chose to receive the kick and began a march up the field with a mixture of short passes and hidden ball plays. Their march was in vain as the time for the half ran out just as Ashbury had landed on Bishops three yard line. The half time score remained at ll for Bishops and 0 for Ashbury. Bishops started the second half by kicking off, after which Ashbury took control and marched right up the Held. The longest gain of this attack was a +0 yard run by Andy Pritchard. After Pritchard's run Evan Gill and Les Cardinal each hit into the line to place the ball on the Bishops 1 yard line. Don Brown took the ball over on a quarterback sneak. Dick Sobie missed the convert which brought the score to I2 for Bishops and 5 for Ashbury. Bishops received the kick-off and Bevans Giles made a series of long gains around the Ashbury ends. A certain amount of credit for these gains goes to the Bishops blocking. A wide sweep on the left end netted Giles his second touchdown of the game. Alike NlcCulloch's convert record was broken when the ball went wide of the uprights. The rest of the quarter saw no further scoring but both teams threatened several times. Score - Bishop 17 - Ashbury 5. In the last quarter Don Brown took the Ashbury squad into the air and Hnally a long pass to Leo Cardinal, out on the right Hat clicked. Cardinal weaved -I-5 yards down the field for a touchdown. The Ash- bury squad took up a placement formation for the convert but Don Brown lashed out with another pass to Les Cardinal who made his way to the Bishops eight yard line. Again the Ashburians were frowned on by lady luck as the game ended before a score could be registered. Final Score - B.C.S. 17 - Ashbury ll. LINE-UPS B.C.S. ASHBCRY S. Hoods snap XY.

L. Polk Ciordie McCulloch LOXVER CANADA COLLEGE Hi: only game against L.C.C. was played here at Ashbury on October 28th. The sky was slightly overcast and a cool breeze was blowing. lt was almost perfect football weather. A large crowd wit- nessed the clash between the Montreal and Ottawa schools. Right from the start Ashbury seemed to hold a hand in the play, and this spirit carried them through the game to the first victory of the season. Towards the middle of the Hrst quarter Pritchard unleashed a long kick which Bill jakes of L.C.C. ran out of the goal zone to about the 8 yard line. On the next play a fumble in the L.C.C. backfield was scooped up by Peter McCulloch who made his way to the L.C.C. 2 yard line. Don Brown took the ball over on a quarterback sneak. The Ashbury convert was made good when Brown, supposedly holding the ball for a placement by Dick Sobie, stood up and lobbed the ball to john Gill over the line. This ended the scoring and play in the first quarter. Ashbury 6 - L.C.C. 0. The second quarter saw the Ashbury squad kick off to L.C.C. ln this quarter the L.C.C. squad took the offensive and made a march right up the field, using a mixture of long passes, short passes over centre, and end sweeps. This march was fruitful in that Bill jakes skirted the end for the touchdown. The Ashbury line, however succeeded in breaking through and smothering the convert. The L.C.C. march had taken a long 'THE ASHBURIAN ,t time, and consequently very little play was seen before the half ended. Ashbury 6 - L.C.C. 5. The second half got under way with Ashbury receiving, and Cardinal ran the kick almost back to the centre stripe. The L.C.C. team held Ashbury and forced them to kick. Then L.C.C. were themselves held, and on third down they came out in kick formation and would have kicked save that Foulkes broke through and partially blocked the attempted kick. Turnbull recovered. After several plays, Cardinal cut short around the right end for a touchdown. Sobie missed his convert as he was rushed on the play. Ashbury ll - L.C.C. 5. L.C.C. elected to receive and Bill XYestaway gathered the ball into his arms and ran the distance to the goal line. This time L.C.C. got their convert. Ashbury made the Nlontreal boys kick otf and were able to run the ball out to their 25 yard stripe. An attempted short pass over centre ended in disaster as Mathews of L.C.C. intercepted the pass and went all the way, a distance of about 35 yards. Again L.C.C. converted the touchdown. Ashbury ll - L.C.C. 17. ln the last quarter Brown led the home team in an aerial attack, and john Roberts nailed one on the L.C.C. 15 yard line. A few plays later Pritchard went over standing up. No convert. Ashbury 16 - L.C.C. 17. Again Ashbury kicked off and right away Dick Sobie intercepted a pass, holding it only in his finger tips. He was able to tuck it away be- fore being tackled. Another Brown to Roberts pass landed Ashbury in exactly the same position as for the last touchdown and Cardinal rounded the right end for the touchdown. which was unconverted but was enough to win the game. Final Score - Ashbury 21 - L.C.C. 17. OLD BOYS N Novmiisijn llth, the Old Boys game was played. and, as usual, it proved a great source of enjoyment for the spectators. Sparked by Gillis Ross in the quarter slot, and by such supporters as Pug Patter- son, Howie Clark. Slug Thomas and Chuck Brown, the Old Boys were indeed a formidable-looking squad. The school managed to survive the pounding however, and won the game 25-0. The first quarter opened with Ashbury kicking off to the Old Boys, who lost the ball on downs, leaving Ashbury in possession on the Old Boys' 45. After a series of short passes, and two first downs. Andy Pritchard plunged over middle on the left side of the line for the first major. The touch went unconverted. ln the second quarter. the Old Boys opened up a little. but an intercepted pass set Ashbury up again. yr 38 THE ASHBURIAN jj A this time on the Old Boys' 38. Les ff r ,jf Cardinal then sprinted down the right S ' -lil .J Jr' end, where he was hit with a long pass by Don Brown, our quarter and went over the line to make the score 10-0. At the beginning of the third quarter the Old Boys began to show new life, and as they surged forward, managed in the first three plays, to make a first down. Their victory was short lived, however as they again bogged down behind their line of scrimmage. As in the first quarter, a series of bullet passes over centre put Pritchard in position for a 40-yard sweep around the left end, and over, for the third major of the day. The fourth quarter saw Ev Gill, who, incidentally, was suffering from a back injury at the time, go through the line on two occasions, for a five-point bonus on each trip. Ev took the first one over the right end for 10 yards, and on his second, a little later in the quarter, he smashed his way over the left guard for a second major. Although the score seems very lopsided, it was actually a great game and a lot of fun. If the Qld Boys had had a little time practising together, the score might have been entirely different. As it was, they played a good game, and it was certainly great to have them back with us once again. THE ASHBURIAN 39 SECOND FIELD RUGBY TEAM NEW' liDlNBL'RCill N 'rHls, our first game of the season, it was easy to see that we had not had nearly enough practice-especially in blocking and in running our plays against opposition. For the first quarter we fought a see-saw battle, with New Edinburgh keeping a slight edge in gaining yards. ln this period our passes were quite successful, and gained quite a bit of ground. Later, however, one of our forwards was intercepted, and it was not long before our opponents had scored a touchdown and convert. This was mostly due to the weak blocking and inefficient tackling of our line. The line really did very little in the way of tackling, and their blocking, although better, left much to be desired. ln the third quarter, another touchdown and convert were scored against us, after Kamcke was forced back and his pass was intercepted. Following this, a steady series of bucks and plunges forced us back, and a further score seemed imminent, when Nowakowski gained possession of the ball and made a substantial gain. Rhodes I took advantage of this to kick a drop kick for a field goal and three points, just as the last quarter began. At this point, we seemed to get started, and we gained steadily on our own plays, as well as on a pass that Sobie ll intercepted behind their line. VVe scored a rouge, soon after, to give us a grand total of four points. Our luck ran out however, and New Edinburgh scored again with a touchdown on a series of bucks through centre. Our playing was only fair, with our kicking kept at a good, if unspectacular, average, and our forward passes usually going wrong, one way or another. More practice was evidently needed to raise the efficiency of our team as a whole. Final Score - Lost 4-17. LINDENLEA UR playing in this game was really better than the score would seem to indicate-the blocking was tighter and our plays went off more smoothly. We kept the game scoreless for the Hrst half, making many advances into enemy territory against what seemed to be a much bigger and heavier team. Our running back of kicks and the reception of passes-two weak points in our previous game-improved noticeably. Altogether we did quite well, and were generally hopeful about the out- come of the game. The first score for Lindenlea was made when they received a kick and ran it back for a touchdown. The ballcarrier was a good runner-he outran the whole team, to score, despite many attempts to tickle him. J M EA RUGBY T FIl'fLD 'I'HIC SECOND en Jerg, A.

T0'Z,L'Z Fr THE ASHBURIAN 41 The convert was unsucessful. Again. in the last quarter. another man made a breakaway, and, fending off all attempts to down him, scored Eve more points. This time they got the convert as well. Although we made no score. and there were no spectacular per- formances by individual players, we worked better as a team. Our plays were often impeded by the tendency of the backficld to start a little too soon, causing slight mix-ups. ln general the same comments apply for this game as for the last. but not as strongly. Final Score - l.ost 0-l l. BISHOPS C.-Xt Home! N 'rms game, our whole team was greatly improved-especially the line The success of our line was due to their practice during the week and to the instruction and practice we had had with Xlr. Perry the day n before. The blocking was a good deal better, and so was our tackling. though there was still room for lots of improvement. We kicked off, and for most of the first quarter we were at least holding our own. lfnfortunately, though, Bishops advanced to within twenty yards of our goal and scored on a wide end-run, a play on which they gained yards continually throughout the game. They made the convert and soon scored on us again, to make the score 12-U at quarter time. ln the next quarter Sobie scored with a forty-live yard run on an extension around the left end. Thus it was that the half-time score was I2-5, and we had hopes of more to come. XYe hoped at least to make a close game of it. These hopes were flattened when B.C.S. picked up one of our fumbles behind the line of scrimmage and ran it for a touchdown. They missed the convert, and it was the last score of the game. The last quarter was a bit wild, with Ashbury going all out to score, but we made little headway. It can truly be said that we lost this game on fumbles, for not only did they score on one of them, but they were frequently managing to pick them up, or at least prevent us from gaining anything on the play. ln this, and in our reception of kicks and passes, our contrast with l3.C.S. was startling, they fumbled rarely, and usually picked up our kicks immediately. Thus they were ahle to make longer run-backs. They took advantage of Your weakness by liberal use of quick kicks when we least expected them. Their team was not so much better thin ours as it would seem. but they got too many breakaways in an otherwise fairly even game-the best we had played to date. ' Final Score - Lost 5-l7. 42 THE ASHBURIAN B1sHoPs CAwayD HHN the eighteen members of the team, our manager, and Mr. Powell got to the station on Friday afternoon, we found that the C.P.R. had really done us proud. Everybody seemed to know right away who we were and which car we were supposed to be in-a modern air- conditioned coach that was being held for us. VVhen we got to Montreal we found that there were tables reserved for us at the XVindsor Station Restaurant. Wie got to Bishops at about eleven o'clock our time fmid- night their timej, and found everything well arranged, enabling us to get settled right away. The early morning had been bitterly cold, but the temperature was just about perfect at the start of the game. VVe kicked off, and marched down the field to the enemy's four-yard line, where we were on a Hrst down. To our great disappointment, we then fumbled and our chance of a major score was gone. The first quarter ended with a scoreless tie, and we were more than holding our own. In the second quarter we were pressed back to our five-yard line by a wide end-run, again one of the consistently successful plays of the B.C.S. squad. VVe held them there for three downs, but were unable to get the ball out of the danger area before Bishops scored a touchdown. The convert was unsuccessful. That was the situation at half time, and we were o timistic as usual, . , . P. . only this time we had better rounds for ho in to win. In the third . 3 g uarter we scored a Held oal on an excellent kick b Rhodes. By three- q U g Y . uarter time we were on the march and another score for us seemed q . . to be on its wa . Unfortunatel it was not to be-our forward was 0 Y Y incomplete, and our try for another Held goal was not successful. The rest of the game was even-too even-for we were unable to get any- where near scoring position again. This was undoubtedl the best ame our team had ever layed. In Y D S P . . fact we made the best showing a second field team has made against B.C.S. for years. Nevertheless, we again lost a chance to win the game, because of fumbles-although, this time, the Bishops' team did almost as badly as ourselves in this,-though not in such disastrous places. The forward passes were generally unsuccessful in both teams, although they were not tried very often. Oddly enough, the Bisho s team only made . . U P . one kick in the whole game, except for their kickoffs and attempted convert. Our line did a good job but for a few slip-ups, and, a few of the Bishop players told us afterwards that they thought our line was doing 11 fine job of breaking through and disrupting their plays. This may have been so, but from our side of the field we seemed to be better on defen- sive. Some of the linesmen, especially Rosenberg, did a splendid job of THE ASHBURIAN 43 picking up their fumbles and generally getting in the opponents' way. It was really a good. close game. Final Score - Lost 3-5. S'I'.-XNSTIQAD Hl-I weather was bitterly cold for the final game of our 1950 season. but perhaps that was just what we had been needing to win a victory. Our team was strengthened bv several members of the first field who were not vet sixteen. and thus eligible. Our average weight was 135 pounds. The first quarter was a tough. hard-fought one. and no score was made on either side. In the second quarter. though. things speeded up with an Ashbury touchdown, which was converted by Sobie I. XYe did not hold the lead for long. for Stanstead had soon scored a touch- down, and. although their convert attempt was blocked. they scored a rouge by kicking the ball into our goal before half time. That left us with a score of 6-6 at half time. It was in the third quarter that we started to get going. Peter Xlc- Culloch started off well. when he ran over for a touchdown. and. soon after. Dick Sobie ran sixty yards down the field. coming just short of a score. We took advantage of our gain before too late. when Peter McCulloch picked up one of their fumbles and scored another Five points. In both these cases. our convert was nicelv smothered by Stan- stead. In the fourth quarter. it was again Ashbury all the way. Cy Sobie took the ball and ran it eighty yards down the field for a touchdown. which was duly converted by Dick Sobie. to make the final score 22-6. Final Score - Hen 22-6. THIRD FIELD RUGBY TEAM URING the season. Ashbury's 3rd team played a total of six games. Our team won one game. tied in two games. and lost three. Throughout the season the spirit of the squad remained high. and. led by the captain. Billy Baer. enjoyed a greater success than the score- board would indicate. The first encounter of the season was with Sandy Hill Rockets. who proved "to have more on the ball" than we did. They won without much difficulty. 17-5. Our lone touch was scored by the captain in the final minutes of the last quarter. on a quarterback sneak. The second game of the season left us underneath once more. with a 7-O score. New Edinburgh produced an extremely heavy team. and we were lucky to keep the score down. 44 THE ASHBURIAN Next-we played Rockcliffe Park Public School. Irwin, the R.P.P.S. quarter-back tallied early in the second quarter. In the third quarter Drew tore through the centre of the line for Ashbury's only score. The game ended with a 12-5 score against us. The tcam's next encounter was also with Rockcliife Public. This game was more successful, culminating in a 12-12 tie. Baer and Wilson scored for Ashbury. Then came the first game of our series with Sedbergh. Our team was supported by a group of "imports" from the second field who seemed to carry most of the light. The Hnal score was 17-16 in our favour. Kamcke, Hicks and Baer scored a touchdown each, and Rhodes kicked the single completed convert. Un November lst, Ashbury's 3rd faced a slightly larger and very much improved Sedbergh squad. The score was 17-16-against us, this time. The series was, thus, tied. Our team played a fair game, with Baer, Kamcke, Nowakovvski scoring. This year, the third Field was under the direction of Messrs. Lee and Derrick. Though the season was not as successful as in previous years, a great deal of experience was gained, which should prove valuable next year. Our thanks are due to our coaches. who sacrificed their spare time to help the team. I'rc5e11mti011 of the Lee Snelling Tropbv THE ASHBURIAN 45 THE FGQTBALL DINNER N 'l'Hl'Z night of Friday, November 2-lth, the members of the lfirst Football team, as well as two representatives of each of the other three Ashbury teams, met in Rhodes llall. There we had the pleasure of seeing a movie of the final playoff game between llamilton and Toronto for the lfastern Canada Football championship. lt was indeed a wonderful movie. and we enjoyed it even more because we had Tom Foley, popular sportseaster for C.F.R.A., giving us a running commen- tary on the game. After the movie, we adjourned to the Dining llall and spent half- an-hour or so disposing of the wonderful meal set before us. XYhen this was finished, we drank roasts to the King, the School, and the Team. In proposing the toast to the team, Mr. Brain had some very interesting and instructive comments to make on the record of our team this year. He advised us to remember two things in the future, to make use of our strength, and to remember that there is a time-limit-it does not matter where you are, or how close you are to scoring, unless you do score before the final whistle, there is no advantage. Then came the main speaker-Mr. Tom Foley. He had already been introduced by Bill XVeeks before the movie, so, without further for- mality, he started. He told us of the importance of sport to people today, both in school and later, both professional and recreational. In a talk freely punctuated with humorous anecdotes, he said that sport was a business just like any other, and that we would find just as many good businessmen and hard bargainers there as in any other business. He spoke of college sports, especially football, where the colleges gained not only publicity, but often money from a good team. But all college football-players are not subsidized morons, he pointed out, indeed in most cases they have to pass a high standard in academic work before they are allowed on the team. Nlr. Foley's talk was enjoyed by all. It was a night not only for speeches, but for awards. Before Xlr. Foley gave his address. Captain Higgs presented the Lee Snelling Trophy to Don Brown-this year's team captain and quarterback. Captain l liggs explained that it was a difficult decision to make, considering the many possibilities, but that he had at last decided that Don Brown was the boy who had done most for football at Ashbury this year. At the very end of the proceedings. the members of the lfirst Team were given their football tabs by Dr. Rowan-Legg-the school doctor. That concluded a most interesting and entertaining evening.

The first two were matches against our traditional rivals, Sedbergh. The first game was at Nlontebello, in bitterly cold weather, on a wet and slippery field. During the first half, Sedbergh forced the game and except for an occasional rush paced by Xlendez and Ycissid, kept the ball in our end most of the time. Our adversaries scored two goals. ln the second half both teams were held scoreless, with our forwards pres- sing the attack this time. Sedbergh had some narrow escapes, but. unfortunately, not narrow enough. The final score was 2-0. The second game was played a week later on our own field. lt was good soccer weather, with a slight breeze blowing. XYe carried the attack in the first half and scored a goal. This marker was tallied by jackson, substituting for Veissid who had wrenched his knee. ln the second half, we fell to pieces and Sedbergh scored two goals-the result of good passing and of our weak defense. The final score was 2-1 for Sedbergh. The next two games were both played on our field against St. Pats whom we had never played before. In the Hrst game, St. Pats was on the offensive, scoring one in the first half and once in the second. Their third goal was neatly scored by our own right fullback. causing the final score to be 3-0. The second game saw Ashbury put up a better fight-the teams playing a see-saw battle, were held scoreless in the first half. During the second half St. Pats scored and later on, we scored against ourselves, as in the previous game. This time our goalie mis- takenly defiected a high shot under the bar. Apart from this accident. Besson made several excellent saves. From the results of the games played this year. it is evident that we were not very successful. However the team showed a fighting spirit that has been lacking for some years. Our forward line was small but fast. ln this regard, Kyranis, Nlendez, Yeissid and Abbott are to be congratulated. The halves were a little sluggish and their kicking weak. The defense pitched in hard but lack of experience was evident when the opposing teams came close. However Clark and Lovink should be given honourable mention for their defensive work. VYe hope that next year the rough spots can be smoothed out and with new blood we may be able to redeem ourselves to the extent of winning some games. ?' ,,.,,, .

In fact, the least said about the 1950-'51 hockey season, the soonest mended. We feel it were best to draw a merciful veil across the whole proceeding. XVe cannot offer a catalogue of successes to a ravening body of victory-hungry parents and old boys: we do not want to parade the bleeding heart. It would be neither enlivening nor entertaining. Sufficient to say we lost the few games played-to Bishops and Lower Canada by our First Team, to Selwyn House by our Under Sixteen, and to Bishops by our Thirteen and Under. All games were reasonably clean, though by no means ladylikc. Some smart hockey was displayed in spots-travelling, unfortunately. in the wrong direction. Practice-ice this winter was scarce, and buried under lumps of snow or Gorman, but we hope to have better arrangements next year. lt would be nice if we had an indoor rink, controlled by no-one but Nlr. Perry and Father Neptune. That way we would be more often in thc competition. x ,-f Qrwf1W fWW '4 'W'f':4r. f Hg ' 1, :..Ag:g,1 1-,ZA-,:'Q,,,: ' ' 15,31 :,- jg Q Mig. Q.

Un February 2-lth, the team entered the downhill race on Kings Nlountain, near lleamish. lt was over this still run that the new additions to the squad proved that they were made of the right stuff.

The team, composed of co-captains Gill I and Gill II, Scott I, Scott Il, Ross, MacLaren, Nowalcowski and Rhodes I, may well be proud of itself for doing so well throughout the season. Rhodes I, Ross, Scott II and Nowakowski showed up admirably in all races, and the school looks forward to an excellent performance from them in the future. Special credit is due to Mr. Polk for his help and instruction throughout the season. THE .+1SH1sU1e1.-iiv 55 G N 'l'Hl'I evening of Wednesday. Februarv 28th, the annual lnter- house Boxing Championships took place in the crowded gvnmas- iuni. Everybody was prepared for a thrill-packed evening. There were ten feature bouts, each of which produced plenty of keen competition. ln the opening 60 lb. bout, T. Fauquier and li. .Xlaclaren set the spirit of the evening with a short free-swinging bout. Nlaclaren came out the victor. The second bout was a 70 lb. battle between N. llarwent and D. Hornell. Again an abbreviated bout of hard lighting saw llornell take the honours. The third bout. for the Chester Xlaster Trophy. saw lf. Xlulkins and D. Knowlton mixing it up. Xlulkins' quick foot work was the decid- ing factor. and won the event for him. The lfdwards Challenge Cup went to bl. llamill in the tifth bout of the evening. The long reach and quick jabs of llamill shook Scott, and the decision went to llamill. .X special mention should go to Scott. who made a good showing. The junior Lightweight bout for the .Xsliliurv College Cup was between G. Ross and K. lioltz. Ross. being the quicker of the Iwo, was able to dodge most of the hard punches thrown by lioltv.. and. at the sanie time. to land many solid blows himself. The bout went fo Ross.

Carne and C. Sinclair to the ring, and as even a duel as was witnessed all evening. The lightweight Fauquier Challenge Cup was awarded to Carne, who came out on top by being more aggressive. The seventh bout saw our South American boys put on a first- class exhibition. G. Turnbull and D. Mendez went hard at it for the whole time. Turnbull, showed the best ring craft ability of the evening, not only won the bout, but also the Grant Cup, emblematic of this ability. In the eighth bout, the heavyweight bout, Hans Luyken and Peter McCulloch exchanged blows. Both combatants got in some telling punches before the final bell. However Luyken shaded NlcCufloch towards the end, and the heavyweight Fauquier Challenge Cup went to Luyken. The semi-final bout, for the Intermediate Lightweight Ashbury College Cup, produced an action-packed six minutes of boxing, when G. XYharton fought H. XlacNeil. Both boys were fast and made extensive use of short jabs, which brought the claret to the noses of both boys early in the first round. TYharton got the nod of the judges. The tenth and last bout of the card was by far the hardest fought event of the evening. E. Gill nearly had L. Cardinal down and out in the second round, but Cardinal, after absorbing this punishment, came on to hurt Gill once or twice in the third round. Gill's early lead made him the victor. Cardinal was the perfect loser. The former captured the Evans Challenge Cup, while the latter was awarded the Rhodes trophy, which is presented to the boxer showing the most spirited and determined display in boxing. Our thanks to Captain Higgs, who did an excellent job in arranging a card of ten of the best bouts anyone could want. We would like to assure him that this is one set of Championships that will not be quickly forgotten. OFP'IClAI.S judges ....... .. Nlr. A. B. Belcher Xlr. D. L. Polk Nlr. R. G.

As usual, each race was hotly contested and full of sur- prises for the forecasters. The times made by the winners, though, were on the average slower than in previous years, particularly in the senior. ln the under-ll race, the first place was taken by Philpotts lll, with Philpotts ll coming in close behind for second place, and Lawson Ill and Hornell tying for third place. This was the only close finish of the morning. The junior race fulfilled all expectations when Nowakow- ski came in ahead of the pack, but Bruce Hiney was a completely unexpected winner of second place, coming in only twenty two seconds behind Nowakowski was shaved just about that much time from his last year's time. Bob Unwin came in soon afterwards to take third place. Lawson Il and Hicks battled it out for top honours in the lnter- mediate race, and were running pretty well neck and neck for much of the race. At the half way mark however, .fxbbott was running second and he continued in that position until the last quarter of the race when Hicks moved tip to second place. The race finished with Lawson about half a minute ahead of Hicks, and Abbott third. -.-. ln the biggest race of the lot, the result was Q.. 7 pretty well as expected, although for a time it looked as if Hans Luyken might well be one of the first three. He began to drop back after the first third of the course had been run, and didn't quite make it. Alan Xlclffulloch took first place, with Peter McCulloch close behind. The third position was held by john Gill. ln this race. Bill XYecks and , fly I 0 V 'Q of MH 60 THE ASI-IBURIAN Don Brown won the joint honour of last place-they were only out for the exercise anyway. The total point score gave XYoollcombe House the victory by 65 points. Although they were completely outclassed in the senior, gaining only -1 points to Connaught's 25, enough points were gained in the other races to give them a healthy margin. ln the under-11 race, Con- naught got only 25 points whereas XVoollcombe had 6, and in the junior and lntermediate races XYoollcombe was on the right end of a 3-15 and a 6-18 score.

It had been our intention to play two innings, but by the time ll wickets had fallen in Ashbury's second inning it was 5.30 and the B.C.S. boys had to get ready to leave. i In our second inning, we ran up a total of 95 runs.

To their horror, they find that the masters are good, and often it has taken all the skill that the lst XI can muster to beat them. This year "the Boys" were heavily favoured to xvin. The Staff had lost some of their best performers of the previous year and without a doubt the situation looked bleak. The Staff elected to bat first and led by Nlessrs. Lee C53 and Powell CHD. they got 34 runs. lncidentally we understand from Ll correspondent that Xlr. Powell has been practising in off hours-thats not quite cricket! Then the School xvent to bat and proceeded to put on their best display of the season. Grimesdale H19 and Hart 41369 were stellar performers.

ASHBLIRY UNDER 16 vs. BISHOPS UNDER 16 N May 19, under a sunny sky, the two rival schools' under 16 teams battled their way through two innings of cricket. The game was not decided until almost the last few minutes of play. The Bishop's XI went to bat first and Pratt tallied most of the sides runs by running the length of the pitch 21 times. Ist innings total -I-2. In the Ashbury first innings there was no outstanding scorer but when the last wicket fell the school was only 8 runs short of the Lennoxville eleven. The Bishop's second innings was a disastrous one as they were only able to total up 15 runs. The school under 16 XI had the best innings of the afternoon when they won the game by getting 64 runs.

Some people have hazarded suggestions that this was a chain gang -they were wrong. Nor, despite the many caustic remarks made by the humourists from the First and second Cricket Fields, was it Ash- bury's imitation of Uncle joe's Siberian Slave Labour Camps. It was nothing more nor less than the Tennis Field engaged in the construction of a new tennis court. This momentous project was carried on under the able supervision of Mr. CCommissarJ Devine, with much appreciated help from Mr. Oliver. Although there were many unavoidable delays, and a shortage of time near the end of the term due to the practices and preparations for the Cadet Inspection, the Work went on smoothly and was virtually completed before the exams. Next Fall, those of us returning will have the use of a Hrst class tennis court, which should add materially to everybody's enjoyment next year and for many years to come. g coco or l THE ASHBURIAN PREFECT , I9 ofgi GILL I-".4yc'. ciwzry inrl' .1 Icing."

In debating, Al can subdue any opponents. whether he be in the riilht or the wronil. by his detemiination. The boys in the Annex know. to'their cost. that Al insists upon order. His loud voice often proclaims to the school that behind the door of the Prefects' Common room some erring student is paying for his crimes. The ni.ui of many muscles is going to maintain his niettle by doing manual labour durinig the summer months. and in the fall he will return to have a shot at his Senior Blatric.

THE ASHBURIAN BROXVX l-"Poverty is 110 sin." Don is one of the school's best athletes, and his proficiency won him a place as Captain of Football. Hockey, and Vice-Captain of Cricket. He is very modest about his abilities and tries to give all the credit to a friend of his by the name ol Harvey. who has recently become visible to him as well as to Mr. Elwood P. Dowd. Throughout the year, Don has kept the commonroom echoing with his laughter. which is no wonder when Bob Bryce is around to egg him on. Sometime ago. Don stated that because he liked the chairs in the prefects' commonroom, he would he back next year. BRYCI-f-"ln low FOIIICIIY, in Plnysics pained." liavishing Robert. as he is known to most of us, seems to distrust the Canadian Post Office, since he handles most of his own correspondence by private courier. On the other hand, it may be just his kind heart making itself evident. After all, if one postman were to have the job of handling Bob's letters he would probably be affected by the perfume. as well as, becoming hunch-hacked due to the volume. Aside from literary ability, the is one of the Editors of this magazine-which perhaps explains why most of this note will not appearl, Bob is a good athlete and an all round nice guy. He's noted for his skill in track and field, and for his geniality. In fact, he is one of the few prefects who can give you 1,000 lilies to write out and leave you feeling happy about it. VVe hope it will be the same when it comes to pulling teeth. LUYKEN I-"IVbe11 didst thou last shine thy shoes?" Hans is the dictator of the discipline in the school. A recent survey has shown that since he became a prefect, the condition of the shoes in the school has reached a new all time record. fsee quotation abovej. A man of many languages, Hans has been invaluable in keeping our foreign students on the straight and narrow path. As far em social life goes, he has been a sly operator. No one is quite sure where he spends his spare time but communiques have varied to the extent that he is sometimes reported on Parliament Hill on a soap box or making a special trip down town to buy some Castile soap. This summer Hans intends to work on a farm and earn some money and that ain't hay. He then plans to enter the Guelph Veterinary College.

IRVVIN-"Youre darn right they have telephone: in Kazabazuaf' Donald hails from Kazabazua-a little town way up in the Gatineau, about which he gets kidded in class all the time, both by boys and by masters. It has even been hinted that he was sent to Ashbury so that he could go back and explain what a telephone is to the local residents. Even if they haven't got all the modern conveniences, his work doesn't seem to have suffered because of this. In class he is one of the strong silent type of workers, but has been known to reverse this trend in French class. Though not one of the school's most ardent athletes, when he does play, he plays well. He too. will be among those present when the roll is called next September. LOVINK-"But sir, in the back of the book it says . . ." Hans hails from Holland-the land of tulips and wooden shoes. The con- census of expert 4?J opinion in the fonn tells us that no 'furriner' can skate -let alone play hockey! Hans set out to disprove this. Not only was he a good skater, but he soon learned to propel the puck with considerable facility. He has proven himself an expert in other school activities, such as work, and will no doubt make a distinguished addition to McGill University next fall. LUYKEN I-"I want to see the following at Break . . .H From Mexico, Hans has become the Leader of Ashbury's Latin American section. He insists that far from being a backward country, Mexico can do anything we can and probably a lot better, what's more, they haven't got this rotten climate to put up with. He is an expert mathematician, as well as a keen scientist, and is expected to announce shortly the completion of a new cigarette-confiscating machine which will do the job automatically. Hans is renowned throughout the school for his love of company, especially at break. Next year he will be at the Ontario Agricultural College, and when he graduates he will probably go back to Mexico and give the great news that they are pulling ploughs with tractors now, Who knows he may have the country mechanized within fifty years! MCEXVEN-'LDo you really mearz that B111111y?" Pete has been subjected to the ordeal of being addressed as 'McLean' in History class for most of the year. A character more unlike Doug could hardly be found. Pete is very quiet and retiring, but when he does come out with something it usually turns out to be pretty good sense. He is a good hard worker, and will probably do himself proud when the Iune exams come along. XICLEAN-"Careful you dorft fail your Algebra, Iobrzf' Doug is a wandering wonder. He comes from Great Slave Lake and Baffin Island, where he worked his fingers to the epidermis in order to buy a motorcycle and be one of the school's "Thunderous Three" CQui? Me?J. Besides being Mr. Brain's favourite pupil, he plays boogie-at least its enough to scare anybody. This summer he-'ll be taking it comparatively easy, hels going to make a hut with a red roof. In due course Doug hopes to become a geologist. PRITCHARD-"Il'onder 'wbieb one I'll take our next." This year. Andy has reached the heights of eminence, an Ev Gill's 'other flu-tts-r?l half. He is also the Commanding Officer in the Cadet Corps, and Ashbury's grand old man. Nvllvll questioned about his ambitions for the future, Andy admitted that some of us may next see his handsome and distinguished features beaming down at us as we sit in agony in the di-utist's chair. Next year be will be gracing the halls of Toronto University.

Only writinu i five papers in June, he has established what must he just ahout an all time record for having spares. His spare time is usually pretty husy though. as he is Adjutant and Sigs. instructor in the Cadet Corps, star Cricketer. ,. Actor and Master of Ceremonies. He is also one of Ashhury's great vocalists. well known for his classic rendition of the Tennessee YValtz. In addition W to his other talents. he has a gift of the gah, and is famous for his wit. lt has been freely predicted that Bill will end up on Broadway, in the army. or in jail. He doesn't admit any long-range ambitions. however, and says 4 i that he has planned no further ahead than Nic-Gill for next fall. l' l l I l I XYELDEN-"lI'bat's the English Prep?" jimmy YYelden. who joined our ranks shortly hefore Easter. has not had much chance to make his mark. He is known to most people as the tall. silent man from Lachute. By his silence he his done us some sersue. though, hy providing a contrast to john Gill. h YUUNGFR l-"I flllllld it in my Prem'l.'-Hflyqlixlf Jii'1iu11.1r-ii. xir."'

C-ood i luck anyway. 1 i THE .-ISHBURIAN FORM VIB HXBBUTT-"Butt" is in his fourth year here now, and doing well. Louie is our smallest Captain of Soccer to date, but that did not prevent iim from having a good time. He also played first team hockey, aut unfortunately was injured while playing at the Aud. This year was the second time that he came third in the Inter- mediate Cross Country Race, but only the first that he has been playing tennis between those midnight QFD parties. Lou's future plans inc ude a summer at lpperwash, and then helll be back for his Senior Cwe hopel. BRYCE-Bob is one of our most cheerful prefects, probably because he did not reach that glorious position until nearly Christmas. He played First Team Football, skied, was a good student, tried to get his junior Matric, and generally made himself an asset to the school, but unfortunately he is not coming back next vear, and this sentence is too lon an wav, so, . . . Best of Luck to You Bob! Let's Hear t u Y . From You Soon. C ARNIC-"Ball O'Fire" Came spent most of the winter hibernating in the school's new ski cabin. Somehow he won the boxing, then got on second team Soccer and Cricket, and to top it all he squeezed himself into the position of corporal in the Cadet Corps. It appears that he will be at lpperwash with Louie. Cleof. is known best for doing last night's prep the day after to-morrow. C ARVIQR-A librarian by trade, he is quite normal in all ways except that he keeps Ending invisible animals all over the place. Peter played second field soccer, hockey and cricket. lele usually keeps up on his work, although Mr. Sibley is often seen on his trail. Pete is a great reader and is tremendously likeable. This summer will be an enjoyab e one as far as he is concerned because he is spending it in the Rockies. L. l I 'l' THE ASHBL'Rl.-IX ,, COOK l-".-Xutomotiye" Cilen is our most avid racing car fiend. and when not studying. f??l he is to be found in the garage tinkering with his jalopy or roaring madly along the race track in it. .-Xii average boy in most respects, he played all the sports this year and did extremely well. Clen is hoping to shine on Sports Day. XXI- will in all probability find him here when we return in the fall. GILBERT-Pete did not do very much in soccer the first term but he showed himself a fair skier in the winter. That his work is not good enough, is what all the masters, especially Xlr. Sibley, try to drill into him. So far it does not seem to have had any effect. l le has the rank of L. Cpl. in the cadet corps. Pete only became a boarder this spring, probably to pass the exams which he had to write this year. although last year he did not have to write them. GRINISD.-XLR-"Grimyv. our "Spanish speaking linglishman", hails from South America and is in his third year at Ashbury. Ile was promoted to Room Captain in the latter part of the year, in which capacity he is doing very well. XVilliam played first team cricket. where he was outstanding in his bowling. Among other things he is a fair gymnast and a second team footballer. His one weak point is physics problems. LANVSON I-"Louse" is one of the most popular boys at Ashbury. He hopes to get his junior Xlatric this year, then his Senior here next year. As he is very industrious, he will probably come through with fiying colours. The G.G.F.C.'s came close to getting two new recruits, john and jerry lYhartou, unfortunately, for maybe for- tunatelyl they were turned down. john is an avid footballer. and also plays hockey and tennis. His intention is to return here in the fall-with the hope of eventually becoming an engineer. NIACLAREN-Ian is also a popular person in the school. He is noted for his ability to work hard and be quiet, both exceptions around here. His customary silence is only broken when a chance to slip in a "reparti" occurs. Besides being quite studious, our friend from Buckingham Cin The Proyincel is also one of Yll3's athletes. particularly in football, hockey and cricket. lYe are pleased to hear that Ian will be with us again nest year. MCCULLOCH l-:Xl is Captain of the lioarders and llead Chapel Clerk this year. From his size it is easy to sce that :Xl was the man to fill both jobs. lle played with the First Rugby and llockey teams, and is our Senior Cross-Country champ for WSI. .-Xmong his distinguished characteristics is a raucous voice which can be heard with unimpaired clarity even though he happens to be at the other end of the building. XYe are happy to announce that this vibrant personality will reappear here next year. 76 THE ASHBURIAN ROBERTS-"Duff", coming from Cornwall, Ont., is a well liked, easy going fellow who claims to be a product of good ole N.B. He scored TVVO goals for XVoollcombe in an Inter-House Soccer. Not only did he catch some passes in the L.C.C. football game, but rumour has it that he has thrown some passes during the rest of the year. john is also handy with a tennis racquet and intends to take journalism. All our best to you john! ROSS-Gerry fShortyJ is in his fifth year now, and is an active mem- ber of the 2nd football, hockey and cricket teams and even the lst ski team. One would think that size is not everything! A friendly, well liked lad about the school, he can always be counted on for laughs, regardless of the consequences. SOBIE I-Dick left us at Easter for "field of business". He was prob- ably the only smart one among us-getting out before he went completely off his rocker. This year Dick played lst team football and hockey, and did more than "slightly annoy" Mr. Powell in classroom from time to time. He was a Cpl. in the Corps, having been to Ipperwash. Good luck with the green stuff, Richard! SOBIIL II-"Cy" is one of the smaller boys in our form, but every inch is packed with dynamite. He captained the second football team and was a part time member of the first hockey team. Cy works hard but we won't say at what. Since he does not know what he intends to do after leaving school he plans on thinking it over here next year. Cy, Cy, Bon! TISDALL-Paddy is one of the brains of our class. He spends half his time getting high marks, and the other half drawing super-sonic rocket-ships. Other activities: Parties and arguing with Mr. Sibley andfor Mr. Powell. Sports: Soccer, skiing and cricket. British Columbia may retain his services next year. TURNBCLL-George hails from the romantic land South of the Rio Grande and is one of the better athletes of the class. He tries hard in his studies, taking time out for school society as well as another form of society. He is a room captain and a tennis fan. George's plans for the future are as yet unsettled, but we expect that he will be back again. XVELLS I-Luke is a prefect and has figured in most of the school sports up to date. Ile is an enthusiastic skier and a lieutenant in the corps. Lukes likes to take long walks, and the reports are that his target is an edifice on the corner of Springfield and Buena Vista. He will not be with us next year as he wants to go to R.P.l. Good luck, Luke! THE :1SHBURl.-IN XYH.-XRTON-Gerry is a sound and all round boy. lle played first team football and did some skiing-lbut not at the Ski Cabin where he spent most of his timel. A 135 boxing champ and a Sergeant in the cadets, he will spend his summer at lpperwash and then come back for his Senior Nlatric. lle should get it if he keeps up his present standard. YOCNGER ll-Robin is a red haired day boy, probably a distant relative of lLinstein's because of his overtiowing knowledge of various forms of machinery. lle spends his time. when he isn't designing cars as weird as 'Fisdall's, on a horse farm, and savs that this appeals to him lbrotherly love, you know! J. liven if wb don't know much about horses. we have to admit that this sounds like horse sense. v ,V FORM VIC BROYYN-Don was Captain of Football, Captain of Hockey. and Vice- Captain of Cricket this year. He has also been a popular Prefect. and we are looking forward to having him back again next year. One of the Schools best Athletes. he is thinking of running for the Presidency of the XYyno Club. CARDIN.-XL-This is Lester's tirst year at Ashbury. Ile proved to be an excellent halfback for the First Football Team. lle also joined up with the First Hockey Team and the Ski Field. Les rooms with the President of the XYyno Club and is looking forward to cele- brating his 5Oth anniversary. CCTTINGHAXI-This year "Butch" has pulled his weight in the First Football. First llockev and First Cricket Teams. llc has also been a Room Captain. andihas an ambition for finding the square root of 86-If. We hope he will join us again next year. llis favourite expression is "He ain't Camels. are we?" 78 THE ASHBURIAN CARRlCNU-The "Colombian General" arrived amongst us with a smile and a determination to learn to speak English. He has been making rapid strides in this regard, and his hands complete the words .ie cannot yet use. His favourite sport is Soccer. DUDCIIC-jack played hard on the First Football and First Hockey Teams. flis chief claim to fame is the fact that he is the President this year of the XVyno Club. An earnest, sincere student, at his studies, iis chief ambition is to make plenty of money to buy an hotel. He also seems to have black as his favourite colour. HANSUN-Dave is noted for his collection of cars. He is a great disbeliever in hard work, but manages to do enough to get by most of his sugijects. His favourite pastime is early morning drill with a choice group of cadets on the quad. HOGBIQN-This is Murray's first year at Ashbury. He has tried hard at sports, but this has been overshadowed by his good academic ability. He is now a very close contender for the Form Prize. He also enjoys his art classes, and is one of the artists for the ASH- BURIAN. JACKSON-This year "Yackers" has been nominated as Cricket Cap- tain of the Second Team. Hailing from Venezuela, jake is quite a lover of music, and one of the keenest members of the Music Club. He made an outstanding success of his part in the School Play. His studies have been improving by leaps and bounds. He has also been a Room Captain, and the Assistant Projectionist. Kl.'iMP-Riclmrtl spends some time being conspicuous by his absence. He loves Camp life, and a little red Convertible and spends some time on his studies. He is also an ardent Cadet man. LFBCJUTILLIFR-"Boots" is one of the happiest boys in the school. He is our chief Projectionist, the Crucifer for the Choir, a Room Captain and a Chapel Clerk. He did very well on the First Football Team, was a skier, and one of the School Gardeners. His favourite expression is "Flunco, fluncere, Fxpelli Bounsumf' He has improved greatly in his academics, and we hope to see him again next year. His main ambition is to be a good farmer and have the "Phillies" win the pennant. l.l",I'i-Bill played First Team Football, and has been the Vice-Captain of the llockcy Team. As Sergeant-Major of the Cadet Corps, he has been most successful. Weekends, we find him visiting the .-Xylmer Road and Sandy Hill. In Geometry Class he is always trying to construct a square circle. Bill is not hard to find, as he spends his spare time in the phone booth. He has also done a good job as a Room Captain. L fi THE ASHBURIAN 71, MacNFlL-A day boy with a keen interest in sports, he played Second Field Rugby. First Field llockey, and First Field Cricket. lle is also one of the stars of the Boxing Competition. .-Xn avid reader of anything but school books, he hopes some day to be an admiral. MCCULLOCH ll-Pete played First Field lfootball, First Hockey and Cricket. His favourite pastime is crowding in the telephone booth with Bill "janet" Lee, and on weekends he accompanies him to the Aylmer Road. lle has been a good Room Captain. and a Sergeant in the Cadet Corps. llis pet aversion is hard work. and his favourite occupation is drawing. RUSPZNBFRG-Rosie made a good show in the Second Football Field and is playing First Field Cricket. lle has a quick wit, and his favourite pastime is acting. lle carries on his pastime all day. lle has also been taking up sleeping in bath tubs. Popular with all at the school his pet aversion is hard work. SALUXI-This is Don Pedro's first year in this country and he has developed well in his studies. A keen soccer player and a natty dresser, he hopes to achieve his iunior matriculation next year. llis favourite hobby is photography. SCHACHER-Ronald hails from Honduras and has been working hard on the first step of his junior matriculation. He played soccer with great gusto, and enjoyed his skiing on the slopes. His great ambi- tion is to be a keen businessman. SLATTERY-Slats is the well known proprietor of the "Slats-mobile". a shiny black Convertible. A collector of Old Bottles, and ladies. he has been making an effort to get through VIC with as little discomfort as possible. He displayed some ability in running the Cross-Country Race, even if he did pause on the way. VVARNOCK-A well meaning student with a fair interest in sports and academics. he spends most of his time catching up on his back Work to make sure that he does not get behind. He played on the Soccer Field. and was a member of the Ski Field and the Track and Field Squad.

VVhereupon they make the supreme effort to collect themselves, along with their books, pens, paper and lab apparatus. The last people to arrive in the door at the start of the period are Lee, Slattery, McCulloch II, Rosenberg and Hanson who try to make as little noise as is inhumanly possible in gaining their seats. Then Mr. Sibley gives a wondrous oration on being on time at all times. Teaching then gets under way and our Spanish friends gaze at our Science Master with admiration, wondering how so many words of wisdom can be uttered in such a short time, so clearly. But withal, Brown, Cardinal, Hogben, MacNeil, NVarnock, Dodge, and Kemp have the makings of brilliant physicists. jake, Murray, Boots and Ronaldo head the form in the subject. All in all, we of VIC have had a most enjoyable year, and our thanks are due to all masters who have put up with us, and who have helped us to make the progress we should have made. See you all in VIB next year, or VIC? . . . FURM REMOVE BRINIC-Mike is a new member of the school and Remove. A hard worker, he is noted for his aiiiliations with certain members of the Netherlands. lle is quite a traveller and at last word is going to spend the summer at his palatial resort in Northern Ireland. He shines in history and is a valuable supplement to any English class. XYe will be looking for him next year. Cl..eXRK-"Any aircraft around?" lfbb is our aeronautical expert, and he also periodically amazes history class with the brilliance of his essays. llis summer hideout is in Xlalartic Lsomewhere in the vicinity of the North Poleb, but he will probably fight his way back next year. THE AsH1sUR1.i.v HI FREEDNIAN-Freedy is the Tom Thumb of Remove, in more ways than one. He has a habit of talking with his mouth full in chemistry class, but has of late been feasting with llart to the extent of several meals after lights-out. Freedy is a lot of fun on any occasion, and we are looking forwardito his return. lle hails from Montreal Cneed we say more? J. GOLD-Bill has recently received a haircut which gives one the impres- sion that he has come in violent contact with a high-sailing torpedo boat. He has occasionally been seen gracing certain strips of wall outside certain doors. Ile has also written satirical bits of prose for a certain magazine. He can work when he wants to and gives evidence of this in English and history class. GUTIERREZ-Guts carries a lot of weight around Remove. lle has recently been elevated to the position of the people's choice as an ambassador to Mr. Perry. He is the mainstay of the l3.B.C. Cliase- ment Butt-room Clubj. We hope to see Guts helping to fill the ivy-covered walls of Ashbury next year. HART-Laurie runs in competition with Gutierrez at the dinner table. but in spite of his trencher-work is Remove's best gymnast. Laurie excells in almost all sports and easily holds his place as one of the hard workers of the form, but even he is inclined to liven up the class with a bit of fun at the master's expense. He retreats to Montreal in the summer, but we are seeing him again in September. HICKS-Our "city farm boy", is new to Remove this year. but is not a farmer academically. He reaps the marks when the wind is right. Mike is a social butterfiy and is seen frequently in the company of, and at, certain parties. Mike assured the press that he will endeavour to please his fans by attaining a place in the senior school next year. KYRANIS-The glory of Ancient Greece has turned up this year from the depths of Form Four to spread his culture among the Removites. Mike Canother onej, is no slacker and has no trouble convincing most of us that he can pass physics, geometry. algebra, and chem- istry. He is a great friend of Ebb Clark and is a soccer star as well as a sure bet for VIC. LIVINGSTON-Deadrock Livy is the casual NLC. of geometry or history class. His hilarious remarks have cost us many a penny repairing the split seams on jackets and shirts. Livy is quite capable of doing justice to himself and the school on the games Held and in the classroom. We think we'll be able to write a VIC. form note on him this time next year. WT 82 THE ASI-IBURIAN NIKNDIQZ-Another funny man. Between bouts of chicken-pox, Diego was elected president of the Ashburian Party. and he also was awarded the B.D. of H. fButt-room Degree of Honestyl. He is a good friend of Gutierrez who is the sole issuer of the HD. of H. and we suspect he may have special connections. He can be seen any day in the fall. out on the Held. practising his favourite game, soccer. MICRRICK-George is usually dreaming up some kind of devilment and is usually seen in the company of the notorious Bill Gold. George is scorer for the 2nd cricket XI and he also played as line- man on the Znd football team. He is continually plagued by the number thirteen. but with a little luck he will be back at Ashbury next year. NOXYAKOXYSKI-Nova, the Polish wonder, has been at Ashbury for seven years. He is reputed to be quite a ladies man, but somehow we doubt it. He is almost a perfect angel in class, but not quite. Chris played every sport and was extremely successful. NEXYNIAN-jerry is one of the hardest workers in the class excelling in Geometry. His hobby is constructing model airplanes with a power drill in the middle of someones favourite radio programme. This practice has every radio owner in the Hats trying to think up horrible deaths for him. His athletic career was hampered by a broken arm received while playing football. XVe hope that in the future he may have better luck. SCOTT ll-"Le petitu is one of Removes hardest workers as well as one of its hardest talkers. We predict for him a long and illustrious law career. He has a great many admirers of both sexes, and we are wondering if he gets any fan mail. Dave is good in sports in spite of his diminutive size and manages to appear ,on most of the teams. He will. of course. be with us in September. VVALKIQR-Philip is the only member of Remove who cannot be summoned for riot, disturbing the peace or assault and battery. He works along steadily and his marksg except in algebra, refiect his industry. He is from Grand Bend, which, we're sorry to say hasn't been located geographically yet. but we hope to have it by the time he returns in September. VVIQDIJ-jiin came late in the year and had a great deal of work to catch up on. He was an outstanding goalie for both the first and second hockey fields, and we understand his summer recreation is building tennis courts. ,lim is an Ottawa boy and will of course Cwe hopel he back next ycar. THE .4SHBL'RI.-IX 85 , ' K .Jr .,, -' -- u- . .3-r - .2 FORM SHELL ALEX.-XNDOR-Dave has been at Ashbury four years. lle is one of the youngest members of the form but never the less is one of the best students. His favourite expression is "Are there any marks for this, sir?" BE.-XVERS-Pat has been with us live years and when he graduates, hopes to become a lawyer. He is also one of the youngest in the form. He made the cricket, hockev and football teams for the third field. ' BOW"-Charles has been at .-Xshbury six years and each year has been the tallest in his form. L'pon graduating he hopes to become an architect. He played middle for the second team this year and proved to be a good football player. EASTXYOOD-Bill was a late arrival from lfngland but he quickly became a firm member of Ashbury. He made the second cricket team and holds the honour of being thc form's best ericketer. GIMENEZ I-Pancho is a new arrival at Ashbury but had no trouble at all picking up the language. lle played soccer and. as do most South Americans, played a good game. KAXICKK-Teddy is also a new boy. coming from L'pper Canada. lle is always having an argument with someone about his beloved town. Toronto. llle usually wins them.J lle played a standout game of hockey. football and cricket for the second team. 84 THE ASHBURIAN LAXYSON-Mike has been at the College two years. This year he played football, and it was unfortunate that he broke a rib playing. He also skis and plays cricket. He has gained the name of the class casanova. LUYKEN Il-Walter is another new member of the school from South America, and although he came late he quickly picked up the language. VVe all hope he will return again next year. PRESTON-john is an old boy of Ashbury having been here five years. He is planning to go to camp again this summer. He plays soccer and skis during the games periods. john spends all his spare moments working in his home work-shop. RASMINSKY-Mike is also a new member of our school but in terms of geometry he has spent all his life with Mr. Heney. XYhen Mike is not doing deductions he can generally be found at the ball park. RHODES-Ned returned to the school again this year and we are happy to have him with us again. He played a good game of foot- ball, hockey and cricket this year. Ned is very popular and gets along with everyone. RAYNILR-David is in his first year and has made startling progress. He was not here for his first term but moved ahead a grade in Latin and French. In games he played hockey and cricket. He has a good stamp collection of which he is very proud. SPARKS-Nick is in his second year as he arrived late last year. He played hockey for the third field, and it was a shock to hear he had hurt his knee while playing. He also played football for the third field. SPENCER-jon is a new members also, but he has added a lot to the form. He plays a good game of cricket and has won a place on the third field as bowler. jon spends his spare time with his chemistry set. VVELLS-Andy hails from Prince Edward Island and believes in making it known. He is one of the form's best athletes and made the second team in hockey, cricket and football. He also wrote all the form notes but his own. VVILSON-Robin has been coming to Ashbury longer than anyone in the form. He played for the third Held football team, and he is the only one who has taken track and Held. XVI.IKlN'lAN-Perdy is the only Swedish boy in the school and has been here three years. He is a hard worker and does very well in class. He played football and cricket for the third field. His hobby is Stamp collecting. and he has a good collection.

IllCI'C'S In ilu THE ASHBURIAN UI QLD BUYS SECTIGN wit years ago in the 19-16 volume, and on various occasions since that time, we appealed to all Old .Xshburians to help us advance the fortunes of the Association, and hence those of the School. hx sending us whatever U. A. material they had. No matter ho-1: rligbr it may seem, any or all of the Association, the lleadmaster. and the edi- tors can use it or store it for future reference. The response to this appeal was encouraging in some respects, but not overwhelming. So we make the appeal once more-news of yourself, of O. Afs among your friends and acquaintances, newspaper clippings on noteworthy achieve- ments of other O. Afs, and what is perhaps even more valuable and important-names, addresses, and occupations Cand changes in the latter twol of Old Boys who might be thought of as out of touch with their old school and the Association. Of special interest to us and to the School generally are what might be called, for the want of better words, memorabilia and archive material generally. Obviously under this heading are early' tpre-19251 numbers of the .4Shl77I7'ii'lll, early team photographs, other School photo- graphs, and personal photographs and articles touching the School and its activities in any way. Material of this kind has an alarming tendency to become lost, chucked out by energetic and well-intentioned wives. or Ca horrid thoughtl even destroyed. Yet the more out-of-date it becomes so much the more valuable and irreplaceable it is. Included in this, we might venture to add are reminiscences of School activities in the days of yore. As an example of what we mean by this last, an Old Boy of the 1891-1900 vintage inadvertently supplied an officer of the Assoc- iation with a highly entertaining account of lunch-time problems and games-time relaxation when Xlr. XYoolleombe's school was in its infancy on 1Yellington street, across from the old Supreme Court. At that time. football practice was held roughly where Dover's l lardware now stands. and formal games against other academies were played in what used to be called Cartier Square. now occupied by NDHQ. Indeed. if any Old Boy is filled bv the divine aH'latus and wishes to see himself in print on Ashbury affairs tpast, present. or futurel, he need onlv submit the neatly typed script and we shall do the rest? But at a more modest level. we are only too happv to receive any and all items on births. marriages, and deaths, appointments, promotions. and retirements. etc. etc. etc.. and the more the merrier. So please scour your cupboards. shelves. desks, and trunks from cellar to attic, keep an eye on the newspapers. and send in the results either to the editor of the .'1Nf7l71ll'fi'lll or to the secretary of the Xssocia- tion, both at the School.

The action of the play must. first of all, he within the scope of young amateursg secondly. its incidents and innuendoes must not offend the often strangely puritanical taste of school-play audiencesg and. in addition, are the necessities of simple decor and costuming-for reasons of time and finance. Few outstanding plays seem to fulfill all these conditions. "lfliza Comes to Stay" fulfills the conditions. hut is not an outstanding play. lt is not even a very good play. The Asliliury-lflmwood production of ll. Y. l",smond's farce was amusing and relaxing entertainment. Without exception the acting was competent. and at least three of the performers showed insight into the characters portrayed. The fact that the others did not emerge as whole personalities was the fault of the play rather than of the per- formers-and is itself of no particular llllptiff. since the play' made little practice of depending on characterization. Laughter was frequent and the audience was grateful for the plai'wriglit's good humour. For the most capalile production uf "lflixa Comes In Stay" w e ow e sincere thanks to Xlr. Belcher. and to Xlr.

In an endeavour to prove that one bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, Mr. Perry has started by planting a number of bushes. The students who have horticultural inclinations have pitched in, and now the HR. H. Perry Gardeners Inc." are produc- ing a potential lumber gold mine for future Ashburians. ln the past few years old trees have had to give up their ground as they became a dangerous chip on our school block. XVe are very glad to see that something is being done to make up for this loss. Another advantage of the trees will not be realized for several years to come, but those of you that will he here for a number of years will be glad when these little giants are giving ample shade during one of those traditionally hot Ashbury closings at the end of the year. XYe do want to caution Mr. Perry on one aspect, and that is that if too many trees are planted the school will be so well hidden that guides will have to be trained to conduct people through the forest to the buildings. However this would probably be better than no trees and a hot closing. 'I'H1i .-1SHHL'Rl.-I N .,. ,v. . .-:sf S CADET CGRPS UR weeks we looked forward to the day of the .Xnnual Inspection with troubled anxiety, as the lack of suitable weather in which to train has been a constant source of worry to us all. llowever, once again the Corps came up with their usual fine performance on Xlay l'. on the school grounds. Major-General Desmond Smith. C.l3.lf.. DSO., C.lJ., recently appointed Master General of the Ordnance, was the Inspecting Oiiicer. The programme followed the usual procedure with an lnspection in Line, a March Past in Column, .Xlarch Past in Column of Route, followed by an Advance in Review Order to the tune of the British Grenadiers. After the Ceremonial portion of the parade the Corps split up into training squads: First Aid under Cpls. Kemp and Xlarnoclcg l,.Xl.Cl. under Sgt. llhartong Ride S.A.T. Sgt. Luyken, , Signals, Lieut. XY. lYeeksg lYoodcraft, Lieut. L. Hells, Xlap Using, Capt. lj. Gill, and a Battle Drill Platoon under Lieut. Brown and C.S..Xl. L J. Lee. K E ' The training squads drew praise from all E?

After completion of the uniform portion of the parade, the junior Corps put on a short well received display of Physical Training and class games. - '- 'WH- 93 'lHli ASHBURIAN 'lio complete the days activities the Senior Corps, after a hasty change. returned to put on a splendid exhibition of mass Physical Train- ing and a short display of Gymnastic work. To climax the performance the Corps was formed up in a hollow square bv Cadet .Nlajor Pritchard to receive a short address by the Reviewing Officer. The General paid tribute to the fine turnout. especially the steadi- ness and marching of the Corps. He drew the attention of the Cadets to the seriousness of the present world situation and drew a comparison between ours and his own training as an oHicer cadet. He concluded his remarks bv saving. while it was some time since he had had an opportunity of seeing a cadet parade he felt that the display put on by the Ashbury Corps was as good as any he had ever witnessed. The thanks of the Corps are due to Captain Higgs for all his enthusiastic and conscientious work, which led them to another success- ful and satisfactorv Annual Inspection.

The world needs leaders he said, not only in the Army, Navy and Air Force, but in the business and political iields as well. It is schools like Ashbury which by their training and discipline develop those leaders. It is difficult to become a leader without Hrst having been subjected to discipline. A good leader must possess three characteristics. He told the attentive listeners that a leader must have integrity, high principals which tell him what is right and what is wrong. He must play fair and he must be unselfish, prepared to help others whenever he can. "If you possess these three characteristics," he concluded, "you will be much admired by your fellows. I heartily congratulate you on your splendid turnout and the smart and soldierly manner in which you carried out your work today." XYe wish to express our sincere thanks to Lieut. XY. Armstrong and the Band of the Royal Canadian Regiment for their assistance in making both the Annual Inspection and the Governor General's review such a splendid success. '1iH15 .-isH1st'1e1.-i.v ,,,, THE SCHOUL DA CE HE School Dance was held on Friday. April I3 and in spite of the omen of Friday I3 everything went well. The lleadinaster and Mrs. Perry along with the co-captains of the school. lfvan Gill and Andy Pritchard. with their girls. Nlargo Dancy and Gail Thorson. made up the receiving line. The decorations were ahundant and a hard working squad saw that they were placed in such a way as to add all the festive appearance that could be desired. The dance was held in Rhodes llall. and it was here that the decorations excelled themselves. At approximately 8.30 pan. the boys arrived escorting their girls to the dance Hoor. Bill Weeks was the NLC. Hlental Case? l-fd. l. Some humour was added to the evening in the form ol- amusing incidents. such as Bill XYeeks singing the "Tennessee XYaltx". and .Xudy Pritchard smoking a cigar that was older tian he was. We were quite happy to see some of the oltl hoys liaek to visit us at our dance this year. The old lxoys who attended were. -Iolin Nesliitt. Joe Travers. and john Baldwin.

Goefrlze The Ashbury Rhythm Hand was again in the news this year, when they came first in the Ottawa Music Festival. Rhythm is the gateway of music for small children, and the students have proven that they have grasped the fundamentals of rhythm from which to start an appreciation and love of music. The students in the junior School have in their studies this year listened to music of all kinds, from primitive music to present day classical and jazz compositions. Only by constant hearing, day to day familiarity with rine music, and intelligent listening can be molded that indehnable attitude of mind which we call musical taste and judgment. XYC have had an excellent year in this respect. After a successful recital in Xlontreal, Xliss XYoodburn invited the Senior boys to her home where she gave the same programme. lt con- : ' n u L -X 1 S u sisted of compositions bv Bach, Nlozart, Lhopin, Ranel and Liszt.

Previouslv juniors had competed in the Intermediate Division. The addition. made possible bv the gencrositv of Xlr. Charles Cale. was iustined bv the large number of junior con- testants. The number of contestants in the Intermediate Division also increased. gratifvinglv. The presence of an audience and an increase in the maximum allowance for speeches. from live to seven minutes. were further innovations. The resultant interest seemed to be visible in the greater care with which speeches had been prepared. Geography' occupied most of the juniors. the intermediates spoke chietiv on histor- ical themesg while the senior accent was on politics. There was. however, enough variety. and merit. to entertain the judges Olessrs. Belcher, Polk. and Dravtonl and the audience for more than two hours. Prizes were awarded as follows:- The Charles Gale Prize for the best -Iunior School Public Speaker- Stephen XYoollcombe. "Raccoons". The Charles Gale Prize for the best Xliddle School Public Speaker- Xlichael Rasminskv. "The llistorv of Chess". The Ross Nlcalaster Prize for the best Senior School Public Speaker- -Iohn Fraser. "Canada and Korea". Apart from criticism of some juniors. who appeared to have memorized their speeches. and of some intermediates. who read theirs. the judges expressed themselves as being most favourably impressed. They added that if the enthusiasm of the iunior contestants and the meticulousness of the intermediates continued. they could expect. in future years. the same excellence to be shown bv the senior contestants as had been shown on this occasion. 104 THE .-ISHBURIAN SPORTS DAY me Annual Track and Field Sports were held this year on Tuesday afternoon, june Sth and on Thursday morning, june 7th.

This was the lastiassemhlv of the vear. and indeed. for many it was the last at fXshhurv. There was a general restlessness shown hy all who awaited the headmaster's arrival. The junior Xlatrieulation students were on edge, waiting to find out the results of the exams which they had just written, and thie remainder of those present were filled with a feeling which is hard to descrihe. hut has heen felt hy all those who have gone through school. .Xfter what seemed an eternity of waiting, Xlr. Perry came in to deliver his Readover Address. He complimented the Staff on a job well done. and he thanked them for bearing with him in his first year as lleadmaster. lrlis thanks also went to the Prefects who, he said. did a wonderful year's work in leading the school down the road to success. I le praised the sehool for striving together to make his first year one of the happiest he had ever spent. The .Iunior .Xlatriculation marks were then read out, and feelings of despair were mixed with feelings of achievement. To those who had heen successful Nlr. Perry extended his heartiest congratulations, and to those who had not met with the desired results he pointed out that one nmst work to win. The finale was reached when Xlr. Perry gave every indication that next vear held some surprising developments which he believed strongly would develop the latent talent in Ashbury sports. Before he left Rhodes llall he said, "God Bless you All". and it was a moment hefore the eo-captains of the school called for three hearty cheers for the headmaster. l,ater in the morning the sehool was reassembled for an address hy the founder of the sehool. Canon Ci. P. XxVUUllCUlllbC. This year we were very fortunate in heing ahle to have Dr. XYoollcomhe visit the school twice. In his address Dr. XYoollcomhe mentioned that next fall would mark the sixtieth anniversary of the founding of the sehool. llc then 1 y stressed that it was neeessarv to have faith and good manners to be a citizen in the world today. - 5 .-Xt the conclusion of the founder's address, Xlr.

One feature of the morning was when Donald Brown broke the record for the Cricket Ball Throw. .-Xt 4 the completion of the ' Track and Field rinals. Mr. lf. Keith Davidson, an old boy of Ashbury, presented the prizes to the winners. At two-thirty in the afternoon many parents, along with the Senior Boys of the l school, congregated in the School Chapel for V the Leaving Service. The service was con- ducted bv the Chaplain, Rev.

George Drew delivered an amusing but instructive speech in which he told the hovs. "You can build a world of peace and securitvu. He went on to say. "You are growing up in one of the most challenging times ever. The future of the world depends on how the members of your generation face that challenge. And in facing it, you will discover the value of the training and education you have had at .Xshhurv." Xlr. lJrew's Address was followed luv the presentation of the prizes hoth academic and athletic.

The purpose of this gathering was to bid farewell to three members who, much to our regret are leaving Ashbury for various occupations in various parts of the world. Miss Ramsey, the Head .Xlasters Secretary. who brought us her Irish good humour, her lrish wit, and her Irish' accent as atbthe begin- ning of the year, is moving on to the soft, nostalgic rains of l3.C.g Xlr. Phillip Lee is returning to England to grind the faces of his Yorkshire compatriotsg Mr. Geoffrey Drayton is going, first to lfngland. then to some as yet undesignated but inevitably remote diplomatic outpost, to cement relationships between the colonies and the Nlotherland. All three will be greatly missed: Xliss Ramsey, who was always ready to give a hand to the furious clerical or hnancial requirements of boys or staffg Klr. Lee, whose loud and angry demmciations have shaken the walls but not the affections of Ashburyg Nlr. Drayton, the junior School Housemaster, whose quiet but firm personality has nourished and reared the tender. growing things in the Ning. All three have endeared themselves to us-each in his own individual way. A small memento was presented to each by Nlr. Perry on behalf of the Staff, and he reHected the sentiments of the entire school when he expressed his regrets at their departure and his hopes for success and happiness in their new jobs. Q93 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS snnckv College wishes to acknowledge the many services and gifts which parents and well-wishers of the school have contrib- uted. Particular mention IIILISI be made of the Ashbury College Xlothers' Guild. This is a group made up of local parents which has met several times during the year. Without their efforts there would not have been a school choir, for the Xlothers' Guild worked long hours In produce the surplices for our choir. A great many parents have donated books for the school library. Major-General D. B. Smith presented the school with a radio- phonograph. a most welcome addition to our music department. Through the kindness of Colonel XY. B. Xlegloughlin. the Depart- ment of Veterans' Affairs gave us a player-piano. This has had a great vogue among the boys. H4 '1'HI-Q AsHBU1e1A1v LITERARY SECTION NVITHOUT THE OPTION OF A FINE i was all over. The victory had been won, and the surrender had just been signed with all due rites and ceremonies. More to the point, as far as I was concerned, my despatch dealing with the colourful and historic events on this occasion had been put on the wire and was now on its wav and out of my hands. In a few hours, it would probably be in print, spread across the front pages of a nation's morning papers, but all I felt was a profound relief at getting through with them. The war was over and a new chapter had been written in the world's history, but at that point all I cared about was getting fixed for the night. Leaving the telegraph station, I trudged slowly up the narrow street, witi an icy wind blowing snow into my face and down my neck. As I made my way in what I hoped was the general direction of the old mansion where I was to be billeted, I thought only of my priispects-probably none too good-of getting a decent meal and a com- fortable bed for the night. I had slept in these antique relics before. and I feared the worst. The sight of my destination certainly did nothing to raise my hopes. My guide had been right enough, even I couldn't miss it. It was, in fact, the only house standing in the entire block, and it wouldn't have surprised me in the least to see it collapse before my eyes. lt was a large stone building, about three centuries old I should guess, and it had evidently been built for strength rather than beauty. It's strength was nothing to boast about now, however-one corner was little more than a rubble heap, while the whole building looked as if the mere vibrations of any bomb which might fall within half a mile would bring it down in ruins. Nevertheless it was a roof over my head, and at that hour of the night, in the middle of a blizzard. I had no desire to go searching around for anything else. Ifull of foreboding, I knocked at the door. After a few minutes, it was answered by a grey-haired, distinguished looking gentleman of about fifty. In my halting German, I began to explain my position, and showed him my billeting card from the Allied Iiligh Command. The old gentleman heard me through most politely, and then in faultless Ifnglish, said that he welcomed me, and would be most happy to have my company, although he hadn't much to offer in the way of luxuries due to the ravages of war. XYith that, he ushered me inside, and we settled down in the comfort of his living-room. There I was able to thaw out before a roaring fire, and a few minutes later we sat down to the best meal I had tasted since joining the Army. 'I'Hli .-1SHBL'Rl.el.X' jj, After this magnificent repast, complete with vintage wines ol' all sorts, we again retired to the living room and, ensconced in two luxur- ious armchairs before the tire. we talked about the war and the world situation, and he told me about the intricacies of 'liransvlvanian politics. He had been an oH'icer in the liritish :Xrmy of Occupation after XX'orld War II, and had liked the place so much, that he had settled down there and was employed by the 'liransylvanian government as a tech! nical adviser. "You know," he said, as he filled my glass, "strictly speaking, l was the cause of XYorld XYar III." I Seeing my incredulity, he continued: "Yes, l know that the war was bound to come no matter what happened, but the fact remains that it was because of me that it came when and where it did. lt all started on july 22nd, 1955. It happened that I was a bit on the late side that morn- ing, and I was driving my car to work, instead of walking as is my custom. I had rather an important meeting on that morning-an Inter- national Conference on Standardization. I believe, anyway it was one of those innumerable international conferences, but the first one ever to have anything to do with Transylvania. "I was in a hurry to get to the oiiice a bit ahead of time, just to see that everything was arranged for the opening meeting. l was just passing the Legislative Buildings, when a black sedan came out of a side street and we crashed. No-one was hurt, but both cars were pretty badly smashed, and the policeman who came over insisted in hauling us all up before the magistrate for a judicial inquiry. That's one thing about the Tran- sylvanian legal system. It's very just and very eliicient, but it can also be very annoying, since any time one of those police oliicers wants an inquiry, often for the iuost trivial cases, everybody involved has to drop whatever he's doing and come along. The inquiry didn't last long, as I was cleared of any guiltathough, as the magistrate pointed out in a ten minute lecture, the whole thing need never have happened if I had been quicker on the trigger. and not in such a hurry. The other driver was also dealt with speedily. for as I left, I could hear the magistrate intoning the phrase so dear to the hearts of judges in this country-"Thirty days imprisonment without the option of a line." That, as I thought, was that, and I hurried otf to make my excuses and apologies to the honourable delegates who were doubtless impaa tiently awaiting my arrival. The rest of the day progressed perfectly according to schedule. and that evening I found myself entering the visitors's gallery of the Chamber of Deputies with the Delegation- showing them our government in session. I expected it to be deadly dull, but hoped that our Communist party might make its weekly bid to overthrow the government and take its place. by proposing a non con- ,,,, THE ASHBURIAN fidence motion. If they were ever to win one of these, they would be asked to form a government for the period until an election was called, and so they kept trying. My hopes were realized, and at 10.00, the leader of the Communist party got up and proposed that "The present administration no longer possesses the confidence of this House." It was really ludicrous that the Communist party should be so well represented in the House, but due to our crazy electoral system, this party had 407, of the seats, while only supported by 20550 of the people. They always created some amusement in the otherwise dry debates, though, no-one objected very vigorously to this injustice. Tonight, however, we witnessed an unexpected twist in the weekly comedy. Several members of the government got up when the vote was called, and walked over to the Communist benches. Indeed, we coufff see that it would be a very close vote-thanks to the unexplained defec- tion of these honourable members. VI'hen the votes were recortfecf the government was maintained-by one vote. The vote that was lacking, was that of a recently elected Communist Deputy, and as the clerk read out his name for the third and last time.

Because I am neither a radical nor an intellectual, I comply with fashion-I wear my hair short. For that reason, and that reason alone, it is my custoni to appear at the establishment of "Gaston Iieehard"-I3arhier" once in every two or three weeks. Gaston is a simple fellow, one of the most simple fellows I have ever met. His mind is as easily read, but as uninteresting, as a street car transfer. I find his conversation odious and his broken French annoying. Ile, on the other hand, looks at me with the disgusted air of a football fan watching a soccer game. Ilis little step-down shop smells of lYildroot Cream Oil and yester- dav's coffee lingering on the single burner in the back room, but it is alwavs swept to the walls. The old, battered cash register which glut- tonoiisly swallows my pocket money with a cheery vibrant elang, seems to sav, "I knew your grandfather." The magazines on the small corner table' are the ones you see in any doctor's or dentist's office-last month's I.,ife and yesterdays journal. Yet Gaston and I have never crossed swords in all the hours I have spent in his chair. I hold him in grudging respect, and he steers clear of my ire. Ile talk about the weather, the trafbc problem in Confusion Square, and the high cost of living-topics on which there can be no argument. Towards the end of the combing, snipping and cutting, he says to me, as he has said for ten years, "lYet or dry?" and I reply, as I have for many years, "Dry, please." I give him the same tip, and he smiles the same poised polished smile of thanks. This is our little pact. Although the world does not know Gaston and me, it might take a lesson from us. .-XNoN.

Form II THE ASHBURIAN 119 MacARTHUR AND HIS FAR EASTERN POLICY oxua months ago, General of the Army Douglas AlacArthur, in disgrace and stripped of all his commands, split the nation with his dramatic presentation of that policy which he has defiantly and out- spokenly advocated since Chinese troops first fought in Korea. lt has been said that it was a corny speech, or that it was a classic speech, but his most bitter enemies cannot deny that it was above all an effec- tive speech. His statements, wise or unwise, have started a debate that will keep America divided until the next election. His policies, right or wrong, have become the most controversial issue since the New Deal. His dismissal, justified or otherwise, has made him a martyr in the eyes of his hero-worshipping fellow Americans, and may well make his a political figure of some stature-possibly the next President. It is indeed unfortunate that this great man should have become a rallying point for those hostile to the present Administration. Since this has happened, we IHLISI consider and judge his policies in the over-all concept of global strategy. In this light, and considering the opinions of other responsible and well informed men, it is unthinkable that the American people will endorse his views. The General declares that we must extend the war to the point of allowing Chinese Nationalist troops to invade China with our help, and of bombing Manchurian bases and establishing a naval blockade against China. He asserts that we must run the risk of Russian interven- tion in the hope of complete victory. He argues that unless we take these long-overdue steps, we will be wasting time, money and lives in Korea. From a purely localized military point of view, this argument seems logical, reasonable, and unanswerable. It ignores, however the effects of such a move on the world picture. The likeliest dangers of such a course of action is not Russian intervention, but a full-scale war with China in which we would stand to gain nothing, and in which we could lose everything. Such a war would complete the dangerous concentration of our forces in the East and would halt any increase of strength in Europe. This would leave Europe ripe for Communist expansion by outright aggression or internal revolution. It is inaccurate to suppose that if Asia falls to Communism, Europe must follow, but it is certainly true that once Europe falls, Asia will not be far behind. lt is vital that we remember that Europe is our first and most important focus of attention. It would be madness indeed to propose evacuating the continent of Asia and leaving it to its fate. but it would be no less folly to make 120 THE ASHBURIAN Asia our main theatre of operations. This would have to be done if we went to war with China. Such a war would certainly win us no friends in Asia, but rather it would complete the alienation of India from the XVest. It would convince India and other such countries that the United States was trying to establish a group of yes-men in Asia, which group would merely be the Americanized version of a colonial empire. As it is now, Red China and Communist Russia are sending wheat to India to relieve their famine. while Cat date of writingj the shortsighted legislators of Washington argue as to whether it would be sound politics to lend India anything. since she is in favour of "appeasing" China. Nor would a war with China. for which we are lamentably un- ready in terms of military preparedness, serve our interests in any way -indeed it would be fatal to all our interests. It would be another Korea, in which we were outnumbered by a hundred to one, rather than by five to one and in which the armed strength of the Soviet Union itself would remain intact. But the policy advocated by MacArthur can hope for little better than war with China. It would be sheer madness to force a conflict in our present weak- ness. especially as such a conflict would be favoured by no more than fifty percent of the American people. and only negligible minorities in the other free countries. There is enough danger of conflict in other parts of the world without rushing blindly into war in Asia. These questions are of vital interest to us all, but they can only, and must only, be settled by the American people themselves. Britain in particular has gravely prejudiced her case by unseemly glee over the dismissal of General MacArthur. and the tactless assumption that his removal would lead to the immediate reception of the plan for recognizing Red China and giving away Formosa. Any hint of foreign influence in obtaining this dismissal. and the policies of moderation followed by Mr. Acheson and Xlr. Truman will be doomed. VVe out- side the United States can do nothing but wait and hope.

In the centre of the lake a rock stood, still defying the efforts of nature to wear it down. lt, and it alone, did not bid us welcome, but we felt that by the wav it allowed the little waves to play over it, even it must have some kiiiti feelings in its cold stone heart. We were almost ashamed to disturb the sanctity of this beautiful place. Here, you thought, was life, in its truest and purest form. It seemed a crime to disturb this wonderful work of nature with so low a thing as a canoe wrought by man. It was with strangely saddened hearts that we left that spot, and I shall always treasure it in my memory for what it really is. One of the fast disappearing 'classics' of nature that has not been marred or destroyed by man-made dams and bulldozers.

And then I saw a little boy, His clothes were thin and torn, I-le was hungrily eying a piece of bread, His face was most forlorn.

A distant light makes a statue move, makes trees humanly alive, makes move a wreath of mist. Then you think of all the people who have worked and built a nation or an empire and now-nothing but dust under a noisy and vice-filled city. A gangster may be planning a robbery or a murder where they have toiled so hard and created so much. Perhaps you wonder where you will be laid and then what hap- pens after, if the soul returns here after death, or wings its way forever. Then you think of religion, and after praying for the soul of a loved one you return to your native haunts, satisfied, for a while with this world.
