'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
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 ll
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.
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
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

. 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
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.
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.
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
14 THE ASHBURIAN
The following is the text of an address to the School by our
Founder, the Reverend Canon VVoollcombe, three days after opening
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
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.

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

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
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 ASHBURIAN 21
'1' THE beginning of the current school year it was decided to
attempt to establish a permanent school choir for the Chapel.
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
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:
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
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 SCIENCE CLUB
Hit first meeting of the Science Club was held on Tuesday, October
10th, 1950. 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
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

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.
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

about time to have something to eat
as we had not eaten for all of a couple
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
The committee responsible for the operation of this club have been

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

THE PGETRY READING
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-
2nd prize, to be named in honour of Dr. TYreford, the XYreford

FIRST FIELD RUGBY TEAM
ofxlx this year we found ourselves with a promising residue of last
year's players and a rather bright appearing future for the rugby
season. 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
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
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. Alike NlcCulloch again
THE .-ISHBURIAN 35
took the extra point with a drop kick, this put the score ll for Bishops
and no score for Ashbury.
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.

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
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.
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.

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
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
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
Final Score - Lost 4-17.
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.
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
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
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
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,

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

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 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

Our team won one game. tied in two games. and lost three.

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.

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 ASHBURIAN 47
HE soccer field played four games this year, three at home and one
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.

E played only a few games of hockey this year. and the few we
did play bore no happy issue. 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

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.

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.

a card of ten of the best bouts anyone could want. We would like to

THE CRUSH CCDUNTRY
HE contestants and spectators began to gather around the starting
line at 10.00 a.m. or thereabouts, and at 10.30, all was made ready
for the race. 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
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.

fall like ten pins, and within two hours we were all out for 57 runs. At
this point our hopes were not high.
Then B.C.S. went in, and their victory seemed assured. However,
with the excellent bowling of Weeks, and a standout performance by
Maclsaren at wickets, they were all out for 48.
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. Don Brown C462
and Phil Foulkes C165 were our major scorers.
It had been decided to count only the score recorded in the lst
inning, so on that basis. Ashbury won the match.
Final Scorez- Ashbury lst Xl-57. B.C.S. lst XI-48.

ASHBURY lst Xl vs. THF, STAFF
Nlay 2-l-th. 1951 1
'1' Ashbury, the twenty-fourth of Xlay is not only the Queens
birthday, it is the day of the Staff cricket game. lfverybody
turns out expecting a gigantic farce and comedy of errors. 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. But the bowling of Xlessrs Lee and Powell managed to bold
the lst XI in check.

ASHBLIRY UNDER 16 vs. BISHOPS UNDER 16
N May 19, under a sunny sky, the two rival schools' under 16 teams

sides runs by running the length of the pitch 21 times. Ist innings
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

68 THE ASI-IBURIAN
cuixo the games periods in the Spring term a careful observer
would have noticed a large group of boys behind the cricket
nets, digging up a piece of land, spreading cinders, levelling it and doing
other such usual bits of hard labour.
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.

Andy is the other half ot the Captain of the School. During the year, Andy has
been trying to accomplish two things: not to have to read the lesson at the

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

the summer months. and in the fall he will return to have a shot at his Senior Blatric.

Phil is really a good head, fand he's got the hair to go with it tool. Though a
closely guarded secret. it is believed that Phil's address book is one of the most
complete and up to date of its kind, This is not surprising when one knows that
he spends no less than two hours each night on the phone collecting gossip from
neighbouring sources. lCoing into the blacl-:mailing business pe-rhaps?1 A story
has been circulated that Phil is inviting all his friends to visit him this sunnner up

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

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

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.

leave you feeling happy about it. VVe hope it will be the same when it comes
to pulling teeth.

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

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
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
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."

Ashbury's grand old man. Nvllvll questioned about his ambitions for the

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

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

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.

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!
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

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-
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.
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

ally easy period only to be suddenly awakened by that inspiring phrase,
"Gentlemen, Gentlemen, your attention, please". 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? . . .
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.
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,
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-

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

of his diminutive size and manages to appear ,on most of the teams.
He will. of course. be with us in September.

summoned for riot, disturbing the peace or assault and battery.
He works along steadily and his marksg except in algebra, refiect

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 SCHOQL PLAY
i' is difiicult to find plays that are hoth good and suitahle for school
production. 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.

HIS year a new form of entertainment was devised by our new and
popular headmaster. 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.

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

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

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. XX'e were also glad to welcome several
members of the Board of Governors. nauielv. Xlr. and Xlrs. tl. lrv in and
Mr. and Xlrs. Cruikshank. The school doctor and Xlrs. Rowan-l.egg
were also present. A
We would like to thank all those who worked so hard to niake this
dance the success that it was. .Xnd from what has lieen said we lielieve
that this was the hest dance ever.

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-

His vear. for the first tiiue. a prize was offered for the best speaker
in the -Iunior School. 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.

of despair were mixed with feelings of achievement. To those who had

those who had not met with the desired results he pointed out that one

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

THE .4SHBURl:1.N' gig
NlN1EDlA'l'El.Y following the Staff meeting on :friday morning, the
Staff adjourned to a brief reception at the llcadmaster's house. 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.
snnckv College wishes to acknowledge the many services and
gifts which parents and well-wishers of the school have contrib-
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.

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!
"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. I realized that this was the
same chap whom I had heard sentenced to "Thirty days imprisonment,
without the option of a rinef'
The rest is well known. lYhen the Reds eouldn't get what they
wanted by bribery, they got their armies from Bulgaria and Roumania,
and invaded our country. The Cnited States opposed them, along with
Britain and France, and the war was on. It took us ten years to the day,
to stop the conHict started by my automobile crash.

Pl:lACL', IN OUR TIME,
in-1 fashion of this civilization dictates that I should wear my hair
short. 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
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.

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-
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
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.

'r was not the still and peaceful lagoon of the bard, nor was it the
tempestuous whirlpool of the novelist. There was a light breeze
blowing. causing tiny waves to appear. blink saucily. and then be swept
away to make room for the next. Here and there an occasional dead-
head. old, gnarled and weather-beaten. lifted its head from its waterv
resting place to nod us a gracious good-day. The lake itself seemed
to move and shift. as if performing some strange and exotic dance.

Around the edges of the pond the reeds waved us their gay hello. The
trees, from the smallest pine to the mightiest oak, seemed to say, "XYel-
come, welcome, to our home." 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
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.

I had a little penny,
It was bright and shiny and new,
I wanted to buy a plaything,
But never a penny would do.
I saw some soldiers on a shelf,
A-standing in a row,
I saw some shiny boats a-sailing,
And Chinese lamps a-glow.
The trains were busily running,
There were balls so nice and new,
There were jumping jacks a-popping,
But a penny wouldn't do.
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.
Before a clock could say tick-tock,
Before a bell could ring,
I gave him my shiny penny,
And then I began to sing.
I felt so warm all over,
As tall as the highest sky
To think that my little penny,
So much happiness could buy.

Factors increasing my gloomy depression,
Are A.P., or GP. or any progression.
If Caesar ignored them, why don't we?
They serve no purpose that I can see.
They're supposed to help us make pots of money,
If that's meant for a joke it isn't funny.
The only use it will ever get,
Is figuring out my load of debt.
Bond rates and interest, and such affairs,
May be quite useful to millionaires,
But me invest money - what a joke!
XVhere would I get it? I'm always broke.
Banking and finance are not for me,
VVhy I can't quite count up to three!
I'll just steer clear of all these, thanks,
I'll only get rich by robbing banks.
Or if a rich uncle should chance to die,
My future's secure, and so am I
There's only one Haw - that's not very many,
Not one of my uncles possesses a penny.

I must save what I earn by digging ditches.
The future holds little hope for me,

GRAVEYARD AT MIDNIGHT
mxmo gravestones, whispering leaves, the splat of dew-drops fall-
ing from the trees, the snapping of twigs, the swish of the grass,
the faint toot of a horn, the roar of a 'plane overhead, all make the grave-
yard a ghostly place. 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

The scene has not changed with thc passing of vcars.
The embers of strife grow not cold.

But it's little we know of its blood.
We have always been spared from the carnage before
That now sweeps the world like a Hood.
VVe've not seen our houses and cities laid low,

We have never yet suffered the rule of the foe,

Pacific river crystal clear,
Flows on and on with little fear
Of treacherous rocks, and swirling wrath,
As it gains speed on its hell-bent path.
The river rumbles, the water churns,
Around the rocks with dips and turns,
A foamy torrent sparkling white,
XVhich seems to growl of Natures might.
A sudden plunge, a deafening roar,
The torrent strikes the rocky floor,
Still hissing and swirling, then slowly dies,
And for an instant dormant lies.
Then on again at faster pace,
Hurrying and scurrying from deathly race,
Slower and slower through caverns worn,
Then on again in a life re-born.
