10 THE ASHBURIAN
R031 under the highest eaves my window affords a fine view of
most of Ashbury's acres and much of its outdoor activities. From
this coign you can see to the southern boundary of the property,
where the street cars sometimes linger to watch the games. To the
eastern limit, too, the playing fields are visible, and only a small corner
to the north-west is concealed by the jut of the building.
ln the fall the soccer goals stand in the middle of the field, here
is feverish activity, punctuated by an occasional malediction in Spanish
and the crunch of shin-bone under toe-cap. Directly beyond, a seeth-
ing mass of medium-sized football players plunge and tackle, and to
the left their smaller counterparts are being taught to give and take.
These are the second and third football teams.
To the right, the first team bends, and bursts into sudden move-
ment, or are at tackling, or blocking, or signal practice, while farther
to the right, but hidden from the eye, there is an indescribable welter of
small, shrill masculinity doing something or other violent. This is the
fourth team at its chores. And so on, until long after the first prophetic
powdering of snow.
In the depths of winter you can see the outdoor rink to the left
of mid-field. This is an athletic oasis in a surrounding desert of snow.
It has been cleared by tractors, and flooded during the night by
mysterious powers. Its boarded sides are buttressed by banks of snow
and encircled on the outside by a highway of ice where beginners
scramble and stumble. On the rink itself, the serious business of
shaping future hockey teams goes forward. Between my window and
the rink, from the side door issues a single file of long-striding, probing
skiers. While in summer . . . "but something too much of this".
just before Easter a new and significant scene appeared beneath
my window. Almost before the snow had gone, came a small knot of
men accompanied by a grunting, shuffling monster that bopped its
shovel nose against the trees and toppled them over and snouted them
contemptuously aside. Came many more men, who closed the wounds
and smoothed the scars.
Since then, the construction of the new building has been progress-
ing satisfactorily and is expected to be completed in the fall. This
building, as many of our readers know, is to be a new classroom block
THE ASHBURIAN ll
- or at least the first section of a new classroom block. The addition
should prove of tremendous benefit in increased efficiency as, although
our classrooms have never been overcrowded, several of them have not
provided the best facilities. These new, up-to-date. spacious rooms will
take the place of all but the best of those at present in use. They will
also make possible a further segregation of age groups during school
hours. The abandoned classrooms will be used for much needed storage
space and work rooms.
And now for a seemingly abrupt transition, one that will carry the
content of this editorial far afield but will carry it, I hope, safely back
to its starting point-a window on the school.
The recent coronation ceremonies of Her Nlajesty, Queen
Elizabeth Il, stand for something even more significant than traditional
ritual, and even more stimulating than the spectacle of massed pageantry.
These ceremonies were celebrated at a time when the people of Britain
must have felt that from a harsh and debilitating war they had emerged
into a world-not of peace but of threat, not of economic recovery,
but of still sterner austerity, not of integration but of disintegration-
political, social and moral. At such a time, the rally of thousands of
representatives from near and remote corners of the Commonwealth,
come together in Britain for the sole purpose of acknowledging the
symbol of the crown, must have seemed in itself a heartening symbol.
It must surely have been felt as a symbol, not only of continuing
solidarity and as a restatement of old political affiliations, but as a
mystic sign of faith and encouragement in the dawn of a new and better
time, of a renaissance of the day of that earlier Elizabeth when men
rejected many of the old depressive beliefs and fought, successfully,
toward the light.
Certainly it would seem to us that so it must have been with those
who were present at these ceremonies, and even at this distance there
is among many of us here in Canada an expectation of increased pro-
gress and expansion, and the achievement of still better times.
Assuredly here at Ashbury we are reinspired with the confidence
that our future is constantly widening and brightening and that now,
in this Coronation year, we may look for a still more powerful solidarity
and singleness of purpose in the march toward our goal-a greater
12 THE ASHBURIAN
N September 10th, 1952, the school year officially began as Mr.
Perry welcomed back many old faces as well as greeting 65 new
boys, who were immediately formed into the new school "house",
which is named in honour of Earl Alexander, our recent Governor-
General, who was such a great friend of the School during his stay in
Canada. The new crop seemed as line a bunch as we have had here for
Many innovations had been effected during the summer, including
the repainting of several classrooms and a reflooring job in several of
the boarder's rooms. iVhile we were exploring the possibilities of these
improvements, we also noticed amid the jostling crowd several new
additions to the staff. Mr. A. H. N. Snelgrove, an old friend of many
of our number, arrived from T.C.S. to assume the teaching duties for
middle school science. Mr. john Viiayland came to us from Yankeeland
and immediately became swallowed up by that mysterious part of the
school known as the Memorial iVing, where he will no doubt prove to
be of admirable assistance to Mr. Lord. And as well as these additions,
we welcomed Miss M. Bray, from Kingston, as the new School Nurse.
She is replacing Miss McLaughlin who, after many years of fine service
to the boys and Staff of Ashbury, had been forced to retire because of
ill health. VVe wish her and her successor the best of luck.
On Friday, September 12th, Mr. E. N. Rhodes, Chairman of the
Board of Governors, came to talk to us briefly on the forthcoming year
and sent it off to a good start by asking the headmaster if he would
proclaim a half-holiday.
On Monday, 15th, the Mothers' Guild held its opening meeting.
This organization carried on its good work throughout the year by
many and varied contributions to the school's well being and comfort
and convenience of the boys.
In the middle of the Fall Term the Hallowe'en Party was held. A
movie was shown and generous refreshments served. Following the
movies the juniors contested for the costume prizes. These boys are to
be congratulated for their imagination and sense of humor which
helped to make the evening so vivid. The highlight of the evening
was the appearance of two dazzling beauties: Miss David Knowlton
and Miss Edward Mulkins. These girls, in their beautiful gowns, re-
ceived many wolf-whistles from the seniors.
After the Christmas examinations the school celebrated its annual
Christmas Dinner and Party. Sitting at the Head's table for the delicious
turkey dinner were representatives from about a dozen different coun-

tries. Each was requested to say "Merry Christmas" in his native tongue.
After supper movies were shown and then the school joined in some
informal and hearty carol-singing. There were several surprises intro-
duced during the evening: first, we were delighted by a return per-
formance of Mr. Fred Oliver who came back from his new home in
Heston, Ontario, bringing with him the irrepressible "Henry" and once
more baffled us with his first class ventriloquial feats. Mr. Frank
Gallagher, radio singer from Schaffer's Pen Parade of New York City,
introduced to us by Gordon Brown, was kind enough to treat us to
several songs which, though all too few in number, were enthusiastically
acclaimed by everyone. Then, too, we were given a quartet consisting of
Mr. Sibley, Mr. Belcher, Mr. Snelgrove and Mr. Devine who rendered
a group of carols with unexpected verve and audacity. A play was put
on by Form I, the title 'Santa XVas So Tired" starring Copeland as
"Mrs. Santa Claus", and a skit was presented by the Butt Room Boys:
"Song Birds and Smoke Eaters".
In the Lent Term we again enjoyed a visit from Mr. john M.
Humphrey, for his tenth consecutive year, whose excellent kodachrome
slides and accompanying talk revealed the beauties of the Province of
Ontario. In the Spring Term we were treated to a travelogue by the
Wilkins Bros. entitled "Beyond the Kyberv, which proved most
interesting and informative.
Parents' receptions were held as usual, and made their customary
useful contribution to friendly relations.
H ea! tb
The health of the school, under the supervision of Miss M. Bray,
as Nurse Matron, was generally good throughout. We were at one
time the victim of an epidemic of the seemingly inevitable fiu but the
bug was fortunately of a relatively mild variety. Then, too, there were
one or two cases of chicken-pox, but again the malady was light and
short lived and at no time reached the proportions of an epidemic.
Under the directions of Miss Short and her efficient lieutenants
of the Domestic Staff, the level of the school meals remained at a satis-

Michael Bogert and to Colin and Pat Starnes for their contributions
of books to the library, Mr. Arthur MacRae for his gift to the school

We wish also to express our thanks to Nlr. Gilbert bl. Doane for
his kindness in lending a television set for the reception of the
Nora.-An interesting bit of Ashburiana has recently come to our
attention: during work on the bell tower we were reminded by the in-
scription on the bell that it was presented by Nlrs. james XY. XYoods on
All Saints Day 1912.
THE MGTHERS' GUILD
Sci: again we are indebted to the fine work of the Mothers' Guild.
This organization has been more active than ever, and we want
them to know just how much the School appreciates their never failing
interest and work on our behalf.
ln addition to the complete redecorating, furnishing and equipping
of one of the boys' rooms, they have provided attractive curtains for
windows of the rooms throughout the School llouse, thereby adding
that touch of hominess that is so important to the personal rooms of the
Then, too, they have carried on throughout the year a pool of
used sports clothing and equipment, where garments and gear which
have been outgrown or discarded by the original owners may be
picked up and put to good use by others who require them. This is
indeed a most valuable service in the interests of convenience and eco-
nomy to those concerned. Again, the Sehool's best thanks to all mem-
bers ofthe Mothers' Guild.

Nerf: more there have been some beautiful additions to our Chapel.
ln the Fall Term, the much awaited Memorial XYindow arrived,
was installed, and unveiled on the Old Boys TVeekend on Sunday, Oct.
26th, at 11 a.m. At this service, the Rev. R. S. V. Crossley, Rector of
the Church of the Ascension, was the special preacher. Capt. G.
lYoollcombe unveiled the window, and also at this service the two
honour rolls of the last two wars were unveiled by Col. Roger Rowley,
and XY. R. lfakin, hfsq. The window is a memorial for all the Old Boys
of Ashbury College who fell in the 1939-1945 lYar. It contains the
Air Force, Army and Navy crests, the torch of freedom, the sword of
sacrifice, the College crest, the lamp of learning, and the school motto
-''Preibitas-Virtus-Comitas". This indeed is a very beautiful addition
to our Chapel, and makes the front of the Chapel more than ever a focal
point for our devotions.
Late in the Fall Term, new Cathedral Lanterns were installed with
Hoodlights for the Choir. These lamps are of a unique design, and lit in
beautifully with the rest of the Chapel, are a major improvement, and are

An unusual and welcome event was held in the Chapel on October
20th, when Bishop lYhite ofhciated at a Confirmation Service for three
girls from Elmwood School. The candidates were presented to the
Bishop by Dean H. H. Clark, and the Chaplain acted as the Bishop's
Chaplain. The girls choir from Elmwood lead the service. The organist
for this service was Myron NIacTavish.

THE .-ISHBURI.-IN 19
ox'rlxL'INcs the custom of the last two years, we have had choir
practices on Klonday afternoons. i
During the Fall Term, the choir spent the majority of choir
practices working for the Christmas carol service. This year. the
service was held on Sunday, December I-lth. Again the chapel was lit
entirely by candlelight, with the added attraction of the light from the
new window. The choir sang the carols: Shepherds in the field abiding,
See amid the winter's snow, The lndian carol, Cradled all lowly. Unto
usa boy is born, and Come in dear angels. and the congregation joined
in the singing of: llark a herald voice is sounding, XYhile shepherds
watched their flocks by night, Adeste Fideles, We three kings, Good
King Wenceslas and Hark the herald angels sing. Silent Night was
sung as a vesper, and Michael Bogert sang the Prince of Peace as a solo.
The service was repeated for the School on Tuesday, December 16th,
prior to the Annual Christmas Party. It was noted that the tone.
expression and diction of the choir had much improved and that the
hard work the boys had done had its reward.
For Sunday Matins, the Choir are now able to do both the Ferial
and the Festal responses as well as the Canticles, and hence we have
been able to have all of Nlatins sung.
During the Spring Term, on Hay 2-lth, we were invited to take
Evensong at St. Bartholomew's Church. For this occasion, the choir
sang "Into the heart of the TYildwood" as an anthem. This visit we
hope will be the first of many, and the boys acquitted themselves well
on this Hrst occasion. We wish to thank the Rector, Klr. Carson, and
the Organist, Nlr. Snelgrove, for having us there.
On Saturday, May 23rd, we held our annual choir party.
This year, Robert Tfnwin has been crucifer, Graham jackson the
assistant erucifer, and Peter Blakeney the server, with Xlr. L. ll. Sibley
as organist and ehoirmaster.
The choir this year has had much assistance from Klr. Snelgrove
who has helped us by playing at practices. so that Nlr. Sibley could
direct and teach. Mr. XV. Slattery has also been a great help in looking
after the boys before services. We could not conclude this brief note
without reference to the Mothers' Guild, and particularly to Nlrs. sl.
Irvin, the Sewing Convener, who has given unstintingly of her time in
order to keep the choir surplices and cassocks in good shape.
For the first time this year a choir medal has been obtained and
presented to the School by the organist. This medal will be worn by
the Head Choir Boy at Sunday Xlatins. The first Head Choir Boy to
be appointed is Fred Reid, and at closing he was presented with a new
Prayer Book given by Mr. Slattery.

His year, the Animal Service of Confirmation was held on Thurs-
day, March Sth, at 8 p.m. in the School Chapel.
The service was conducted by the Right Reverend Robert
.lefIerson, D.D., D.C.L., Lord Bishop of Ottawa, assisted by Arch-
deacon C. Anderson, B.A., the Diocesan Secretary, Canon C. L. G.
Bruce, L.Th., Rector of St. Albans Church, Rev. A. T. Carson. ALA.,
B.D.. Rector of St. Bartholomew's Church, and the School Chaplain.
The Bishop in his address to the candidates emphasized the im-
portance in these troubled times of sticking to the Christian ethic of
behaviour. Pride in one's traditions is also important, he declared, and
he went on to sketch the history of the Anglican Church, showing that
all our liturgy dates back to very early times.
The Procession was led by Crucifer Robert L'nwin, followed by
the Choir and Clergy. The School Chaplain presented the candidates,
Rev. A. T. Carson read the Introduction, Canon C. L. G. Bruce read

THE ASHBURIAN 21
N the Autumn Term our Science activity took the form of trips to
the Leonardo Da Vinci show held at the International Business Kla-
chines Company. Two groups paid a visit here. Da Vinci, besides being
the painter of the "Mona Lisa" and the "Last Supper", was a great
sculptor, engineer, architect and scientist. At the exhibit here in
Ottawa, we learned that many of the so called new ideas of today are
very old indeed. IVe think of town planning as a modern idea, Da Vinci
was town planning in 1484. We think of the aeroplane as a modern
device, Da Vinci was designing a primitive aeroplane in the early l6th
century. IVe think of the automobile as a recent innovation, but Da
Vinci designed and built a working automobile in his day. Ilere at the
exhibit, we also saw models of the first hc:ur-minute-second clock,
gun turrets, catapults, scaling ladders, water locks for canals, gears
and military devices which were all forerunners of our modern devices
of a similar nature. There were also copies of his notebooks which were
written backwards so that others of his time would not steal his in-
ventions. IVe left feeling very humble in the presence of the work of
this genius of long ago.
In january, as usual, we paid our annual visit to the Gatineau
Power Plant, which was a great assistance to our study of e..ectricity.
Also in january we were fortunate in obtaining a new film "Pack-
aged Poweru, the latest of the Aluminum Company's films. This told the
fantastic story of the Kitimat Project out in British Columbia. By the
time this project is completed, the contours of a vast area of British
Columbia will have changed, and rivers will have been re-directed un-
derneath a mountain to provide the power necessary for the electrolytic
manufacture of aluminum.
At the end of january, a group toured the E. B. Eddy Plant in
Hull. Here we saw the manufacture of mechanical pulp to be later pro-
cessed into hand towels, paper of all sorts, and light bond. The long wet
paper machines always amazed us with their many parts, their speed and
their versatility. XVe are indebted to Nlr. N. B. A. Fair for his efforts in
making this trip possible.
On XVednesday, April 22nd, we had another of the Bell Telephone
Demonstrations. This was well attended. The new long distance
system, and the new micro wave development were demonstrated and
explained. Here too, we saw light running around lucite, sound waves
being picked up by receivers, and an illustration of how television will
travel through this area.
The Science Club this year has made good progress, with arrange-
ments in the hands of Mr. Sibley assisted by Ifpper School students.

THE SENIOR SCIENCE TRIP TO MONTREAL
HE Science Group this year left for Nlontreal shortly after the
Hfinter Half Term tests. IVe were excused the last class period
on Vlednesday, February 4th, HIC supper in Symington Hall, and then
were picked up by bus at the front door. The bus service was parti-
cularly notable, as the bus company went out of its way to be of service
to us, with Mr. Sibley's assistance. Vlfe arrived in Montreal, and went
our separate ways, all of us being billeted at parents and friends. Vlfe
met together early next morning and set off to visit the Fry-Cadbury
Plant. This was a wonderful beginning for our excursion, for there
were many sights, smells and tastes which were richly satisfying. VVe
watched the whole process of chocolate-bar making: the arrival and
crushing of the cocoa beans, nuts and special Havouring, the slow
steady beating and moulding into all the multitudinous shapes and set-
tings. It was quite fascinating to realize the variety of recipes which are
followed, and to see new ones being developed. One question which was
on the tongues of many was "how are the fillings put in bars like 'Cara-
milk'?" Our guides, however, told us that this was a top secret operation,
and could only tell us that it required split second timing. One interest-
ing little process was the making of chocolate chips. These are origin-
ally little drops of liquid chocolate which are dropped into a long sliding
tray which passes through various coolers. At the end of the route,
they are slid off and automatically wrapped in air tight containers. No
human hand touches them from the start to the finish of this wonder-
ful little process. VVe also saw the complete manufacture of cocoa and
hot chocolate. For permission to see this plant, we are indebted to Mr.
Philip IYoollcombe, of Fry-Cadbury.
After a private lunch, we set off for the Dominion Rubber Com-
pany where we took in some smells and sights which were in sharp
contrast to those of the morning tour. XVe saw many different kinds of
rubber merchandise being made - fire hose, belting, foam rubber
cushions, stoppers, trays, mats, drain boards, and containers. There was
one fascinating "weaving" process where string was woven at a terrific
rate into rubber tubing to make reinforced hosing. We also saw their
plastics department which was in its initial stages of development.
Tough transparent hose of vinyl was one feature of this section.
On Thursday evening, the Headmaster came to Montreal to an
Old Boys' Dinner very kindly given in our honour by a group of Klon-
treal Old Boys. This sumptuous meal was held in the University Club,
and was enjoyed by all present. The Old Boys present were introduced
very wittily by Mr. Bill lfakins. The Headmaster spoke briefly, and
Nlr. Sibley extended a hearty vote of thanks to Messrs. B. Robinson,
P. XYoollcombe, R. Craig, H. Ronalds, P. Gault, XY. Chipman and

The next morning, we went to see the Shell Oil Refinery at Klon-
treal East. The Company very kindly sent station wagons to pick us
up at our headquarters, the lYindsor Hotel. On arrival at the Refinery.
over steaming coffee, we were given an explanation of a How sheet
depicting the large, involved plant. Then we were off on our tour. Our
first stop was at the Topping Plant where the lighter hydrocarbons
are separated. These consisted of fractionating columns. where the
lighter gasoline molecules are taken off. leaving behind a heavy black
residue - "topped crude". This residue was taken and heated in a
Vacuum Flasher, which broke down this residue into pitch and more
fuel. These fuels were further broken down in the Catalytic Cracking
and the Thermal Cracking Process. The Catalytic process used a clay
catalyst at 10003 F.. and here the heavier molecules were broken down
into lighter ones. The Thermal Cracking process changed the fuel
molecules still further into high octane material. These processes were
followed by the Polymerizer and Solutizer Plants. The Polyinerizer
built the smaller molecules into larger molecules of gasoline. The
Solutizer literally scrubbed every drop of gasoline to remove sulphur
compounds. The last stage was the Blending Plant. where all the
varieties of gasoline were blended to form the commercial products -
propane, aviation gasoline, napthas, kerosene. jet fuel. diesel oil. fuel
oils, and bunker fuel. After our tour, lunch was provided by the
company in their cafeteria. After lunch we were driven to the huge
Canadair Plant at St. Laurent.
24 THE ASHBURIAN
This plant is tremendous in size, and so we had to move quickly,
and consequently, it was difficult to absorb all that was going on. All
the plant was in the assembly line state, and we saw jets in the making
from the drawingboard state to the finished product, and were
allowed to inspect the T-33 in the completed form. Un the way out
we stopped to see a jet warming up for the take off. Eric, our reliable
source of aeronautical information, told us that we could roast a steak
at 120 feet from its exhaust. The vibrations were terrific even 100
yards away. XV e are grateful to Mr. Hore for arranging this peep into
Canada's latest workshop of air dominance.
That evening we enjoyed a splendid dinner at the Reform Club.
The Hon. D. C. Abbott was our host, in absentia, consequently his
son Lewis presided. The beef was excellent, and we are deeply grate-
ful for Mr. Abbott's kindness.
On Saturday morning, we watched our first Hockey Team meet
defeat at L.C.C.'s hands. Then after lunch we met at the McGill gates
for an inspection of the University's new Physical Science Centre.
This trip was very interesting, but I think the highlight was the new
Auditorium - a marvel of accoustical achievement. Dr. VV. H.
Hatcher, who took us around, well equipped with his excellent wit,
gave us many vivid little examples of the benefits of this hall. XVe also
saw some of the more ancient labs in the old chemistry building, and
noted in passing that much excellent work had been accomplished
there despite their ancient appearance. The new laboratories were of
the latest design and first rate places to work in. After the tour, coffee
and cake was served to us in the Student Common Room. For this
excellent completion of a thoroughly worth while tour, we are indebted
to McGill University, and particularly to Dr. Hatcher.
The Science Club is indeed grateful to all those who made the
trip possible, and of course to Mr. Sibley, for whom, when arranging
is considered, the trip lasts at least a month. Making the trip this year
were Mr. Sibley, jackson, Abbott, Clark I, Hart, Hogben, Hore, Barr,
Matthews, Mclnnes, Nueman, Unwin, with Short and V erhaegen
joining us the latter part, and your reporter, Carne.
THE ASHBURIAN 25
THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS CLUB
Hrs year the International Relations Club, under Nlr. Polk's able
guidance. put on a mock parliament, as had been done three years
previously. Held on Friday, February 28th, in Rhodes Ilall, one might
say that there was boundless enthusiasm - in fact that is putting it
mildly. Before the night was out, Rhodes Hall was to witness one
of the most "spirited" gatherings in all its history. The Hon. L. KY.
Abbott was speaker, while the government was lead by the Rt. Ilon.
Graham P. jackson. Her Alajesty's loyal opposition was led by the
I-Ion. David Hanson. Also in session was the "Spanish Block", who
soon made themselves known with loud boos and the odd song or two.
Although everyone enjoyed themselves it was unlikely that anyone
was able to accumulate any great amount of information on par-
liamentary procedure. The gathering was further enhanced by a
varied array of costumes, from the large fur coat which the leader of
the opposition wore, to the Russian Cossacks' uniform of Defence
Minister Kemp. All in all, it was a night which those in attendance
will probably never forget.
THE MUSIC CLUB
HIS year, the Music Club held two major gatherings. The first of
these took place on Friday, November 21st, when Alf. A. H. N.
Snelgrove gave an Organ Recital in the College Chapel. This is the
first organ recital we have had in the School for years, and it was much
enjoyed by all. The programme was grouped in seven parts. We heard
old familiar favourites like Schumamfs "Traumerei", Schubert's "Ave
Maria", Bach's 'fesu joy of Mans Desiringu, Sullivan's "Lost Chord",
and Brahm's "Lullaby", "The Pilgrim's Chorus" from Tannhauser was
particularly well done. One of the highlights of this programme was the
rendition of "Silent Night", with only the light shining through the new
Memorial Window. This was I11OSt effective, and made a fitting finale
to a very enjoyable evening. Laurie Hart sang a Solo "Aly Task" at this
recital, and is to be commended for his efforts. Hr. Snelgrove was in-
troduced by Mr. Sibley, and thanked by Graham jackson.
During the Winter Term, the Alusic Club journeyed to the home of
Miss XYoodburn. There, the boys under the guidance of Air. Snelgrove
heard a piano recital given by the senior pupils of Aliss XYoodburn. Une
of the outstanding items of the programme was the Piano Concerto in
26 THE ASHBURIAN
D Minor by Mendelssohn, with Miss VVoodburn taking the Orchestra
part on a second piano. At the conclusion of the evening, refreshments
were served. The whole evening was much enjoyed, and it is to be
hoped that other such evenings will be forthcoming in the future. Our
sincere appreciation is due to Miss VVoodburn.
THE GLEE CLUB
NE of the innovations in the life of the school this year was the
formation of a glee club. This being an entirely voluntary orga-
nization, represented a group of boys who were interested in singing.
A real measure of success was reached when the Club presented a
group of songs at the Parents' Reception during the Autumn Term.
This, their first performance, was well received.
Since then their rehearsals have been confined to the songs of
Gilbert and Sullivan's "H.M.S. Pinaforew, having in mind that some-
day they may be able to present this well-known operetta.
A keen interest was shown, not only by the members but also by
the school as a whole. We wish this profitable and entertaining group
every success in their efforts.
The Club is under the direction of Mr. Snelgrove, who gave
generously of his time, energy, and talent, and the president of the
group is Laurie Hart.

third of the team was playing its Hrst X vi. nm
year of football. We were virtually a junior team in senior competition.
The Headmaster himself, before the season began, expressed appre-
hension at the necessity of playing our traditional rivals, lacking the
two essentials, power and experience, we were outscored and out-
played in most of our games. But I will say this about the team this
year: we were never beaten in the true sense of the word. The players
consistently ignored the score, and played their hearts out for sixty
minutes every game. There were no excuses about scores, no "ifs" or
"would haves", none was needed. Their sense of fair play and sports-
manship could never be questioned, and at all times they were a real
credit to our School.
THE LISGAR, CARLETON PLACE, AND NEPEAN GAMES
Uur first organized scrimmage was against our old rivals, Lisgar,
who came out tfn the top end of a 17-O score. We were unable to
cope effectively with their end sweep. Andy Hells' brother starred
But the following week we visited Carleton Place, and after a
hard game, emerged with a happy 6-2 victory over a team that went
on to an undefeated season in its league. In that game, George Barr
ran a reverse for a thirty yard touchdown, converted by Ned Rhodes,
and Andy XYells and joe Irvin broke away for some sizeable gains.
Kingston and Hart played well on the line. But the outstanding
performance was that of Tony Holland, whose tackling was superb.
The Carleton kicker, Finley, starred in a losing cause.
The following Thursday we were visited by Nepean High
School, whose end sweeps, like those of Lisgar, led them to a 12-2

FIRST BISHOPS GAME

lege School at Lennoxville for the first of her annual encounters.
In the first quarter the School started ofi with her usual determination
but by the end of the first fifteen minutes the score stood at: Bishops
10 Ashbury O. lt seemed that each good gain which the School made
was returned with a better one by the Bishops squad.
ln the second quarter the team started well again. with several
good runs by Hells and Gamble. However. after a costly' fumble by
SU THE ASHBURIAN
Ashbury and an excellent pass by Bishops the score stood at Bishops
16, Ashbury O. The School kicked off to Bishops after the half and
Bishops boys put on a crushing display to put Price over for a T.D-
after only 6 plays. After this touchdown the School got back on
her feet and with excellent tackling by Holland and Clark, managed
to hold Bishops from any further scoring in this quarter. In the final
quarter the Bishops team scored twice again, but the School looked
much less ragged and a lot more confident.
Hells, Gamble and Shurly did well offensively with Clark, Hart,
Rhodes and Holland doing the bulk of the tackling. Final score:
Bishops 33, Ashbury 0.
SECOND BISHOP'S GAME
On Saturday morning, October 18, a smooth functioning, well ba-
lanced team from B.C.S. won its fifth straight victory of the sea-
son, over a game but outclassed Ashbury team, by a score of 29-7.
Early in the first quarter a Bishops sleeper caught the Ashbury tertiary
fiatfooted, and Turnbull went over standing up, Oscar Ochoa block-
ing the attempted convert. By quarter time, Bishops had rolled to
another T.D. on a plunge by lineman Shirley XVoods, converted by
Pratt with a drop kick. Early in the second quarter, Ashbury quarter-
back Bill Baer, calling rapid signals, caught the Bishops defence off-
balance, and Ashbury rolled down the field on successive plunges by
Matthews, Gamble, and Hart, till Gamble finally carried over from
the three yard line, Killaly converting. This was the Hrst time this
season that the Bishops team had had a touchdown scored against it.
By half time, Southward retaliated for Bishops on a reverse to make the
Ashbury started the second half strongly, and soon scored a rouge
on a kick by Laurie Hart, Baer and Gamble making the tackle. Bishops
then struck back, MacDougall making a great run around end to score
a converted T.D., and Roger Hart carried over from the three yard
line just before three-quarter time for another converted major. In
the fourth quarter Ashbury pressed the visitors, but were held on the
five yard line after a determined drive.
It was a clean hard-fought game throughout, in perfect weather
conditions. There were no individual stars for Bishops, who fielded
an extremely well balanced team. Outstanding for Ashbury were the
plunging of Gamble, and the all round two way play of Captain Laurie
LOXVER CANADA COLLEGE GAME
On the crisp, clear Saturday afternoon of the Old Boys' week-
end we met Lower Canada College of Montreal. Ashbury chalked
up the first score on Harts kick for one point. From there on, how-
THE ASHBURIAN Sl
ever, it was apparent that our opponents were to carry the game.
They made three touchdowns, converting one, before Andy XYclls
plunged over, after a march down the field by Ashbury, to make our
only major score of the afternoon. L.C.C. then kicked another point
and in the last minutes ofthe game made a converted touchdown.
The final score was 23-6.
ROYAL MILITARY COLLlQGli GANIIQ
This year, on November l, we again played R.Al.C., wc were
no match for the cadets, as they marched to a 32-l victory in excel-
lent weather conditions. Ashbury opened the scoring with a single by
Hart in the early minutes. By quarter time R.Al.C. had scored a con-
verted touchdown on a buck by XlacLellan after a long drive. In
the second quarter a rouge and another converted touchdown put the
Cadets ahead 13-l at half time. A steady drive by Ashbury was stopped
deep in the Cadets' end when the School fumbled, and by three quarter
time, R.M.C. added a field goal and a T.D., the latter when an alert
cadet picked up a fumble of an R.Nl.C. kick. The final T.D. was on
a pass late in the fourth quarter.
The Cadet quarterback McCarthy was the star of the game, his
shifty broken field running providing much excitement. For the
losers, Tony Holland's tackling, Ned Rhodes' passing, and Don
Gamble's plunging stood Ollt.
OLD BOYS GAME
Audacity was the key-note from the start. After preliminary cat-
calls and cheering in the traditional manner of Bronxville, the School
kicked off to Pritchard who ran the ball back to the OB. -I-0. Then.
on a quick play, he dropped back and heaved a neat but apparently not
unexpected pass into the arms of Gill who trotted quietly over from
the School 15. XYith the missed convert, the score was 5-0 for the
Old Boys after some 20 seconds of play.
School chose to receive the kickoff and, by sensible plunging
against a somewhat disorganized O.B. defence, worked the ball up to
their opponents' 15. From here Gamble shook a tackler or two loose
and galumphed over to make the score 5-5. Hart's attempted convert
by placement hit the upright a resounding blow.
Old Boys received and, with some forceful charging by Patterson,
Gills and E., and Pritchard, made three first downs and found them-
selves in possession on the School 3 yard line. Gill lf. tried a quarter
back sneak and made 2 yards 2 feet and could well be seen at the bot-
tom of the heap working the ball over with his nose. However he was
caught and sentenced by his captain to another sneak which this time
was successful. Pritchard passed to Gill who took the hcadlinesinans
32 THE ASHBURIAN
bet that he would miss the catch after he had caught it and had to be
satisfied with the one point. Score was thus brought to 11-5 in the GB.
The battle seesawed fairly evenly with the Old Boys gaining
ground on the runback of Hart's booming kicks with Zilberg in the
novel slot of catching half. But his self-appointed role as sleeper was
not recognized by his captain McKinley or passer Pritchard, while Gill
J. had picked up a private eye in the shape of Matthews.
Old Boys were again successful in working the ball up the Held
by brute strength plus a beautiful end run, reminiscent of Argos in the
thirties. CAuthor's Note: an END RUN for the benefit of spectators
and coaches in the 1950's was a thrilling gromzd-gainivzg play now
fallen into desuetude as containing no forward pass.j Quarter Gill E.
and backs Patterson, Gill J., and Pritchard all handled the ball and
together made about 30 yards. A play or two later, Gill took a pass
from Pritchard almost on the goal line and scored standing up, and
with Pritchard's successful placement almost as the whistle blew for
half time the score stood at 17-5 for the Old Boys.
School then pulled itself together a bit and, on good ground plays
by 1Vells, Gamble, and Hart were again in scoring position. Disdaining
a shot for three points at 3rd down on the 15 with 2 to go, Hart
plunged wide and over and Rhodes converted by placement to bring
the score to 17-ll.
Age should now have been beginning to tell with the veterans in
the O.B. squad but, apart from old gaffer McKinley who was pooped
from tying up his laces when he changed, there was no letup in the
OB. drive and once again Gill plunged over from five yards out.
The attempted placement was a picture play, as the sports editors have
it: a bad snap by Sinclair gave Gill E. no chance to hold it for Pritchard
so he began dodging around looking for an eligible receiver the while.
None being handy, he began an end run and, being trapped, lateralled
to Pritchard who by this time had got the general idea. So had the
school line, and no convert resulted. The score was now 22-11 at
which point it remained for the duration.
Mention must be made of the interesting Ochoa L. experiment -
evidently one of those Connaught House plays. In a sepulchral voice
Cobviously planned to convulse the O.B. linej Rhodes called the
Algebra and Uchoa presented himself by his elbow to take the hand-
out or handoff or whatever name it goes by. But each time, a reception
committee of Old Boys in the shape of Hart C. and McKinley Ctotal-
ling a modest 395 lbsj was there to help and waltzed him back gently
into the arms of his fellows to the lively ILIIICS of Nlr. Brain's whistle.
All in all, a good, hard, fast-moving game and a richly deserved
win for the Old Boys, their second since 1945.
THE ASHBURIAN J
ALEXANDER vs. CUNNALCHT
The Season of 1952 saw a new era marked in the Ashbury House
games. The new House, Alexander, was included in the post-season
battles which sent a stir of excitement through the School. By virtue
of a draw Alexander was slated to meet Connaught in the first game.
Under the captaining of George Barr and the vice-captaining of .Xlac
Killaly, the new House Put up a valiant fight - only to be beaten by
one touchdown. Connaught was sparked by Ned Rhodes, Dave
Livingston, and Andy XYells in the backfield, with Laurie Hart and
Leo Ochoa on the line. Alexander's big lights were George Barr and
Mac Killaly in the backfield, and Dave Kennedy on the line. The game
was fast and furious all the way through, with Connaught having the
slight edge on the play. In the second quarter Ned Rhodes carried the
ball over for the only score. The convert attempt was unsuccessful.
Thus Connaught House emerged victorious in the first of the tri-house
games. Final score Connaught 5, Alexander 0.
XYOOLLCONIBE vs. CONNAUGHT
The second and final round of the House games saw the vic-
torious Connaught team defeat IYoollcombe in a hard fought extremely
close game by 12-6. In the first quarter the play remained fairly even,
but in the second, on an around end play. Dave Livingston went over
for the first score. It was converted by Ned Rhodes. After the half
Viioollcombe came back with greater determination and immediately
sent Les Cardinal over for a touchdown. This score was converted by
Stu McInnis and thus the teams stood evenly at 6-6. The tension was
terrific as the two old rivals attempted to eke out even a single point
in order to emerge the football House champions. Finally, on an
identical play as that which netted him his first one, Dave Livingston
scored to put Connaught in the lead 11-6. Again this major was con-
verted by Ned Rhodes. This ended the scoring for the game and by
virtue of their two successive wins Connaught emerged victorious in
the inter-House Games. Final score Connaught 12, XYoollcombe 6.
Looking back over the season, the scores certainly do seem disap-
pointing. But we know we did our best, and that is all that was
expected of us. The prospect for the future is most encouraging.
Nearly the whole team will be back next year, bolstered by newcomers
from our strong second team. Much will be expected of Killaly.
Rhodes, Irvin, Kingston, Veissid, the Ochoas, in fact all of them.
Irvin was nursing a sore ankle for IHOSE of this season. and we missed
the speedy end sweeping of which he is capable. We lacked power and
experience, a year can make a great difference, especially to a team like
ours. And with the pattern of Hne spirit set this year. next autumn
promises better things for Ashbury football.

EASTVIEXV HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS vs ASHBURY
In a game played at Ashbury the city's junior 'B' champs of 1951
took quick advantage of their superiority in strength and experience by
scoring their first T.D. on a pass intercepted on Ashbury's 35 yard
stripe, and the convert was good. They made sure of their win on a
long flat pass from our 27 yd. line. Hicks, Mclnnes and Kennedy
played well in this first game of our season.

completed a long pass over centre for the second touch of the first

score on a fake line plunge which turned into an end sweep. From
this time, Ashbury was really in the game. On the kick-off .Xlclnnes
made a 65 yd. runback all the way for a touchdown with the aid of ex-
cellent blocking. The convert was good. The last minute of the game

ASHBURY vs BISIIOPS
The first game of our home and home series with Bishops took
place at Bishops on Uctober 18th, while the L.C.C. firsts played at Ash-

dividing the touch-downs which were ultimatively converted. While
Hicks scored a single, Bishops came through with only one touch-down,
but were unable to make the convert good. The final score was 13-5
in our favour, showing that Ashbury was completely in command of
Final score: Ashbury 13, B.C.S. 5.
BISHOP'S vs ASI-IBURY
The second game of the home and home series took place at Ash-
bury on October 25th a clear crisp Saturday.
Ashbury kicked off and kept the ball in Bishops territory for the
first quarter. Scott opened the scoring with a touch-down as the climax
to a three-play drive from Bishops 50 yd. line. Mclnnes converted it.
In the last minute of the quarter a well-called and quick kick by
Mclnnes from Bishops 40 yd. line resulted in a rouge, bringing the
score to 7-0, favour of Ashbury.
Ashbury sat back in the second quarter, and a long pass from our
45 yard line to johnson Iof B.C.S. resulted in a major score, and a good
convert by Blake gave the purple team their first and only points.
The play ranged back and forth in the third quarter, and there were
many fumbles on both sides, due to the cold weather. In the fourth,
however, Ashbury broke into scoring again with a single point Ca kick
by Hicksj and a touch-down by Ross. after he and Finlay had blocked
a Bishops third-down kick in our opponents territory.
Tinker, MacKay and Trott played well for Bishops. while Ash-
burys advantages consisted of the tackling of Gamble ll and Kennedy,
the running of Mclnnes and Scott. and Hicks' kicking and running.
Final score: Ashbury 13, B.C.S. 6.

THIRD FIELD RUGBY
Hi-3 third football team this year enjoyed a reasonably successful
season in that they were able to overcome a poor start to finish the
season with victories. Our opponents this year were Rockcliffe Public
School and the Cathedral Choir, and the games they gave us proved to
be both enjoyable and hard played. Of seven games in all we won three,
which is not such a bad average.
The backheld mainstays were Xlayburry, Cameron, Eschauzier,
Klaellillan, Rhodes II and Gorrie. Un the line, the most essential part
of any team, were rooted XYoolleombe, Higgs, Reid, Gamble III,
Ahearn and Brouse. with the end positions ably filled by Plow and
Rivers. These players were backed up by a long list of powerful sub-
stitutes who showed great eagerness to play.
THE ASHBUIHAN 37
ROCKCLIFFLI AT ASIAIBURY
The Hrst game with Rockcliffe proved disastrous for the Thirds.
Ashbury was outplayed on all Hanks by the tackling and running skill
Rockeliffe 11, Ashbury U.
ASHBURY AT RUCIQCLIFFIC
The team began to show some improvement, although this was
not evident by the score. They had moments of greatness but failed to
take proper advantage of these.
Rockcliffe 13, Ashbury 0.
RUCKCLIFFE AT ASHBURY
The third game proved to be a very thrilling fixture. The 5-1
score for Ashbury proved the team could work together, and showed
signs of greater things to come. The pass-interception by Seed and
many dashing tackles by Cameron paved the way for Ashbury's only
major of the game when MacMillan, aided by a strong line, ploughed
through centre for a touchdown. The convert was unsuccessful.
Ashbury 5, Rockcliffe 1.
ASHBURY AT ROCKCLIFFIL
This game was perhaps the most heart breaking of all, especially as
it came hot after a victory. The School team, guided by Cameron, and
sparked by the backs and the line, drove down the Held many times,
but were only able to score once. MacLaren and Eschauzier were
the stars of the day. Rhodes II was done out of a touch down when
he tripped over a small spectator on a break-away!
Rockcliffe 7, Ashbury 6.
THE CATHEDRAL CHOIR AT ASHBURY
The next day Ashbury took on an unorganized Cathedral team,
only to find themselves overcome by size and hard luck. However, it
proived to be a good game, and much experience was gained from it.
Bruce Hiney quarter-backed the team in Cameron's absence and filled
the bill capably. Eschauzier and MacMillan were the major scorers.
Cathedral 15, Ashbury 12.
ROCKCLIFFE AT ASHBURY
The last Ashbury-Rockcliife game was the highlight of the season
as far as the Third Team was concerned. Winning by a score of 27-0
they outplayed the Rockclidfians in their passing, running. and line
work. Rhodes ll clicked with one touch and three singles. .Eschauzier
and MacMillan made two touch-downs each. The Hawless playing of
the line, spirited by XYoollcombe, was very encouraging.
Ashbury 27, Rockcliffe 0.
ss THE AsHBUR1AN
C.-XTHEDRAL AT ASHBURY
In this, the last game of the season, we were successful in gaining
a victory over our opponents.
Ashbury 16, Cathedral 10.
If the series with our two opponents had been total points to count
Ashbury would have beaten Rockcliffe by one point and Cathedral by
two. So you see, a fairly successful and extremely thrilling season was
had by all.
At 8.00 p.m. Friday, November 30th, the annual Ashbury football
dinner was held in Symington Hall after a showing of football movies
in Rhodes Hall. It was attended by the husky members of the First
Team, managers and coach, also representatives from the Soccer,
Second and Third football teams. A few interested and hungry mas-
ters put in smiling appearances. Among the special guests were Dr.
Rowan-Legg and Messrs. S. Irvin, Gale and the press.
There were many gleeful noises as the delicious T.-bone steaks
were consumed. After dinner the Headmaster, Mr. R. H. Perry, asked
Mr. A. B. Belcher, the housemaster, to propose a toast to the School.
Mr. Belcher spoke with various allusions to aeroplane flights and "fel-
low passengers", of the importance of good relations between masters
and boys. He believed that these relations existed at Ashbury. Graham
P. jackson, the captain of the School, replied in a humourously critical
manner to the foregoing speech. Then the Headmaster, who acted as
master of ceremonies, passed his usual witty remarks in asking Mr.
A. D. Brain to sum up the team's progress. Mr. Brain was very ana-
lytical and said he thought that the reason for the team,s comparatively
unsuccessful year was because it hadn't used the right men to the
best advantage. Laurie Hart, the team captain, thanked Mr. Brain.
Mr. T. VV. Lawson, the team coach, presented the Lee Snelling
Trophy, for the most valuable player, to Laurie Hart, and everyone
thought it a richly deserved presentation. The trophy for the most
improved player went to Howard Clark. This was indeed praise-
worthy, as it was Howardls first year of football. The Headmaster
then gave out red football tabs to all members of the first team.
A iill lr. Bruce Cummings of the Uttawa Rough Riders was the guest-
speaker, and he spoke interestingly on his experiences when he had
played as a boy against Ashbury. He allotted the remainder of his
time to answering questions eagerly Hred at him by the boys. Mr.
Perry thanked him, expressing the hope that he would return again
soon, thus closing a highly successful evening.

The opening game of the season was played on our home ground
against the R.Nl.C. seconds. This seemed to be the team's hardest match.
since we took a sound 4-0 beating last year. But it was obvious that
Ashbury was out to try to revenge this loss. It was one of the best
games of the year and although the final result was a scoreless tie, our
determined, almost furious display demonstrated that this was going
to be one of Ashbury's best years in soccer. Honourable mention
should be given to Funes for a splendid display of goal-tending. But
actually the whole team was at its best as everyone was doing his part
and playing his hardest.
The second game of the season was an under
1+ fixture against a junior team from Sedbergh, f
our traditional rivals. It was evident that we were
and the final score of 7-2 in favour of Ashbury
certainly verfies this. Apart from the actual
victoryiit was also pleasing to note the great
promise which the younger members of the field
are showing. VVith such players of this age
coming on, the first team should continue to be
a credit to the school. The marksmen for us in
this game were Grant, Birbeck, Ross II and
Grandi. ' gi 1
Another match with Sedbergh was held SA x f ffl
a week later on the latter's home ground. This MH
contest was between their lst team and a 17 and under squad from
Ashbury. It was one of the most hotly contested games of the season
and the two goals by Martinez and Carne ended with a well earned
score of 2-0. Although Sedbergh lacked some of the power and drive
of former years, it was, nevertheless, a close match all the way. As
usual our hosts provided their traditional and much appreciated snack.
Next day, the senior team took on a group from St. Pat's, another
old Rival. Of the three matches against this school, played in former
years, Ashbury was unable to win any. But this time the school made
up for this deficit with a convincing -I--0 victory. The teams were
fairly evenly matched, but it was obvious that we had had more
practice, and for three-quarters of the game our goais were hardly
threatened at all. It was only near the close of the game when Ashbury
seemed to slacken their drive, that St. Pat's threatened to score, but
with some good defensive work and neat goal-tending by Kleinhans,
we held on to the shut-out. Carne and Klarmol kicked two goals each.
superior in practically every department of play ,,
The final contest of the soccer season against Kemptville Agri-
cultural School was certainly our most convincing victory and also
the most memorable, due to the enjoyable social entertainment provided
by our hosts. The outcome of this affair was a 10-0 triumph for us,
but the one-sidedness of the affair is understandable since this is the
first year Kemptville has taken to soccer. Also their opportunity for
practice was much less than ours. The scoring sheet reads as follows:
Abbott, jackson, Marmol, Grimsdale and Funes, the "all-rounder",
kicked two each. That decided Nlarmol as the top scorer of the season,
with four to his credit.
More important than the game was the friendly relationship we
have established with the Agricultural School, and Ashbury has bene-
fitted by adding a friendly adversary for other sports. The school is
grateful for the enjoyable dance arranged for us after the game and
for this our thanks go to Mr. Barr, the principal, and Mrs. Barr.

FIRST HOCKEY TEAM
KENIPTVILLIL AGRICCLTCRAL SCHOOL vs ASIIIICRY
HE first hockey game of the season was played at the .Nlinto
against our new rivals. the Keinptvillc Agricultural School. It
was a fast, hard-fought contest all the wav. and the final outcome was
in doubt right up to the last minute. Ashbury relinquished a 5-H. first
period lead, on goals bv Irvin and Holland, and Iieniptville elqed out
a 6-5 victory. The rinal goals total showed two each for llolland and
Irvin, and one for Abbott.
Two games were played against Carleton College during the
season. The first encounter ended in an overwhelming 13-2 victory
42 THE ASI-IBURIAN
for the collegians, which is understandable, considering the difference
in size and experience. The second match was little more than a
scrimmage, with the University giving us some of their men to even
up the contest. The Hnal result of this game was 3-2 in favour of
Carleton. Irvin and IYells were the goal-scorers in the two contests.
ASHBURY vs KEMPTVILLE AGRICULTURAL SCHOOL
The School's second encounter against the Kemptville squad was
not so close a contest as the first. Playing on the visitors' rink, we
managed to net only 2 goals to our opponent's 7. joe Irvin was marks-
man for us on both tallies.
ASHBURY vs L.C.C.
Our first important game was played at the Montreal Forum,
against our traditional rivals, Lower Canada College.
The school was unable to turn aside the fast skating Montrealers
and apart from the offensive work of Irvin and the keen defensive
efforts by Killaly and VVells, the team seemed slow and listless. The
final score was 9-4, Irvin scoring three of the goals, while Holland
netted the fourth.
SOUTH CARLFTON H.S. vs ASHBURY
Another of our exhibition games was against S.C. H.S., whom
the school had played in Football. Although our opponents were a
more experienced and faster group the school was able to make them
fight for every goal, and although a 4-1 defeat was suffered, it was by
no means a bad game for us. Irvin accounted for Ashbury's only
ASHBURY vs NORTHVVOOD SCHOOL
For the second year in a row, the school travelled down to Lake
Placid to join battle with Northwood School. Playing without the
service of joe Irvin, the team nevertheless put on the most spirited dis-
play of the season. Although the Americans had improved over last
year in both skill and determination, it was not felt that the team had
anything to be ashamed of, since as in most of our contests, the oppo-
sition was considerably stronger. Final score: Northwood 9, Ash. 2.
BISHOP'S vs ASHBURY
The game against Bishop's College School, our old rivals, was
played at the Minto, following a contest between the junior teams of
both schools. It was obvious that the squad from Lennoxville was
out to revenge the 3-2 loss suffered last year, and with fast skating and
smart defensive work, they shut the school out 6-O.
THE OLD BOYS vs ASHBURY
The last game of the season was played against the Old Boys
at the Minto and proved to be Ashbury's only victory of the season.

"A" TEAM HOCKEY ff, xi
HE team this year had a
fine season of fast, clean
hockev. On january 29, we
played our first game against
rink in the evening. The heavier 6 5 "'-Q
LaSalle boys had superior speed l I
and endurance throughout, and
Ashbury found it difficult to keep
up the 'pace in the late stages of
the game. At the end of the Hrst two periods the score was 5-3 for
LaSalle, but, by the end of the game, had leapt to 9-3. Nevertheless
our boys showed good teamwork throughout, and never stopped
trying. Kingston starred on defence, playing a clean steady game.
Cameron tallied twice for Ashbury, and Grant scored our other goal.
Our second game was at Cathcart rink, again on a Thursday
night, and proved to be a far better match than the first. Our oppo-
nents this time were the Rocket Flyers club, who won a close 5-4
victory by virtue of superior back checking. Unfortunately there
was a casualty: Kingston received a bad cut under his chin, and
required five stitches to patch it up. Ashbury stars in this game were
Mclnnis and Irvin, each bagging two goals for the School. Mulkins
played extremely well in our nets.
Our second match with LaSalle was played at the Auditorium
on Feb. 28. LaSalle opened the scoring when Courville, assisted by
Beauchamp, beat Mulkins with a quick one. Ashbury rallied, and
soon Irvin tied the score, Killaly assisting. Then LaSalle in a sudden
second frame splurge, netted four very fast goals, with Racette,
Beauchamp, Courville, and Levesque scoring in rapid succession,
while Lesage, Cote, and Gagne rated assists. After this, Ashbury
settled down with a vengeance and carried the play for the remainder
of the game. Irvin slapped in a quick one with McInnis's help, and
the latter also tallied with Grogan assisting. Final score: LaSalle 5,
Ashbury 3. Killaly played a very good game on defence, and Grogan
played well both offensively and as a back checker.
LaSalle Academy at the LaSalle i
In these three matches both teams consistently played the puck
rather than the man, and fast clean hockey was the gratifying result.
On Friday, March 6, the team set out for Lakeheld bv taxi to
play Grove llnds. After a good supper at the school the game got
underway at 6 p.m. on a perfect sheet of ice. The teams were beauti-
fully matchcd, and the game was rough and fast. Irvin opened the
scoring for Ashbury with a solo rush from his own blueline after
taking a nice passout from Kingston. The Grove tied it up with a
neat goal by Galambos, but Irvin soon scored again, this time on a
THE ASHBURIAN 45
pass from Killaly. A few minutes later Delamere retaliated for the
Grove. A third Lakefield goal was matched by a slapshot from Grant
on a flipout from Beavers. Grove scored again before showing signs
of tiring, and then Ashbury carried the play, scoring three times
consecutively. The Grove boys had great difficulty checking lrvin,
who completed the hat trick, and then Ashbury went ahead, Beavers
scoring on a rebound, and Killaly driving in a hard shot after a nice
pass from Gorrie. XYith two minutes left lrvin was penalized, and
Lakefield put up a great last minute drive, being rewarded with two
more goals, both on shots from the blueline, thereby tieing the score.
Despite these last two goals, Kd Nlulkins played a fine game in the
nets for Ashbury. The individual standout was joe lrvin, who missed
the services of his linemate Nlclnnes, at home with Hu. The line of
Beavers, Grant, and Kennedy displayed some remarkable teamwork.
After the game, cocoa and cake were served at the school, followed
by a most enjoyable movie and then to the bed in the Grove's beauti-
ful new wing. When we left the next morning for Port Hope, we
carried with us memories of very kind hospitality.
VVe arrived in Port Hope on time to shake our legs before a
delicious roast lamb dinner at T.C.S. The game with T.C.S. 15's
commenced at 1.00 p.m. Ashbury opened fast with a goal by Irvin
on a solo rush. By the end of the first period Hyland retaliated for
T.C.S. to tie the score. In the second period, the Ottawa boys showed
signs of fatigue, and T.C.S. took the lead on two goals by Tallestrup.
Irvin scored again for Ashbury on a beautiful solo rush, but the Ash-
bury boys could muster little teamwork, our two regular forward
lines being disrupted by the loss of Nlclnnes and Kennedy, who
suffered a splitting headache just before game time. The reserve
junior line of Cameron, Gorrie, and Seed filled in capably in the 3rd
period, and came close to scoring, but apart from that, T.C.S. kept
us on the defensive for most of the remainder, and Hyland completed
the scoring for T.C.S. In the last two minutes Ashbury suddenly
came to life, and in a desperate drive, peppered the T.C.S. goalie from
all directions, but Burns played brilliantly in the T.C.S. nets, and the
final Whistle left the score at 4-2 for T.C.S.
Second Team colours were awarded this year to the following:
Beavers, Grant, Grogan, and Mulkins.

SECOND HOCKEY TEAM CUNDER 155
HE Under Fifteen Team had a very good season, losing only one
game. The first game was played at the Minto Club against
Selwyn House, it was a very fine game. Selwyn opened the scoring
when Meighen with a pass from McNeill, beat Mulkins with a nice
shot. But then Ashbury struck back, and within two minutes Rhodes
and Seed both tallied with assists from VVoollcombe, and Gorrie and
Cameron respectively. Maxwell, helped by Carsley and Hinton,
managed to tie the score again in the second period. However, in the
last period Ashbury had the edge, and Gorrie scored two goals with
Cameron assisting both times, and Seed once. Six minutes later, Seed
slapped in a quick shot on a pass from Sutherland. And in the final
seconds of the game, Meighen drilled the puck past Mulkins, MacNeill
again gaining an assist. Final score: Ashbury 5, Selwyn House 3.
Seed, who scored twice, and Cameron, who set up most of the scoring
plays, were the outstanding Ashbury players. Meighen played well
for his school.
THE ASHBURIAN 47
On Feb. 9, we visited .Nlontreal to play a return match with
Selwyn House at Verdun Auditorium. This time Xlulkins gained his
first shutout, as Ashbury drove to a decisive 5-0 victory. Corrie led
the scoring with two goals and an assist. llecnev, Rhodes, and Seed
also scored for the School. The teamwork of hoith Ashbury forward
lines in this game was remarkable, and XYoollcombe distinguished
himself by a great effort on defence.
The team's third game was its only defeat. Sedbergh visited us
on a relatively warm and thawing day. The ice, by the end of the
game, was very slushy, and there were parts of the rink where play
was impossible. Team plays were out of the question, and the match
soon deteriorated into a game of shinny. The Sedbergh boys were in
excellent condition and deserved their 3-2 victory. Cameron and Seed
notched Ashbury's two goals.
Cur last game was played at the Auditorium, and our visitors
this time were the boys of Lakefield Grove. The pace of the game
was fast and both teams displayed excellent teamwork. Gorrie scored
unassisted, Seed scored a beautiful goal on a pass from Cameron, and
Ross tallied on a play set up by Rhodes and Kenney. Easton and
Davis scored two of the Grove's three goals, as the teams battled to
a 3-3 tie. Ashbury standout defensively was Pat Beavers, who gave
the forwards fine backing throughout the game.
Third Team colours were awarded this year to Cameron, Gorrie,
Seed, and VVoollcombe.
HE ski season opened with bad weather but excellent team pro-
spects. We had four leading members of last year's team back,
two of whom, Ned Rhodes and David Scott, were elected captain
and vice-captain respectively. We were very fortunate in having Mr.
R. L. Gill, an ex-captain of skiing at Ashbury and winner of the
Price Trophy in 1951, to coach our '53 edition of the team.
The season started earlier than most, with a trip to Lake Placid
N.Y. to ski in the Northwood School winter sports tournament. We
left Ottawa on the 30th of December in order to get in shape before
the meet on the 2nd of january. The troupe consisted of captain
Ned Rhodes, Dave Scott, Chris Gill, Gerry Ross and R. E. L. Gill
Esq. He were to ski against five other schools-Northwood, Salisbury,
Harrow, Kent, and Deerfield. After two long days of excellent skiing,
january 2nd dawned bright and clear and unexpectedly mild.
The first event, the downhill, was held on the Ht. Whitney
racing trail. Our best position in this was 9th by Ned Rhodes. Dave
Scott and Chris Gill were tied for 13th and Gerry Ross was 19th.
These rather unfortunate standings left us in 3rd position, as a team,
at the end of the downhill. The next event, the slalom, raised our hopes
slightly. Ned Rhodes was Sth, Dave Scott llth, Chris Gill 13th, and
Gerry Ross 15th. We managed to obtain 2nd place in team standings
after this event. The next day we faced the cross-country in a blind-
ing SHUXV-St0I'Ill. We again did slightly better here, with Dave Scott
taking 3rd position, Gerry Ross Sth, Ned Rhodes 9th, and Chris Gill
12th. XYhen all totals were compiled, Northwood School emerged
victorious and Ashbury stood 3rd. However, we were not too dis-
pleased with these results as we had shown our heels to a number of
excellent competitors, and it was our first engagement of the season.

The following meet was with our next door neighbours Sedbergh
School in Montebello. A team comprised of Ned Rhodes. Dave Scott.
Gerald Ross. Art Hardv. Dave Livingston and Chris Gill drove to
the School in the early morning of Saturday the 1-lth of February.
The downhill was run in nearly perfect conditions and was won bv
our own Art Hardy. Dave Livingston was second. Ned Rhodes
fourth, Chris Gill fifth, Dave Scott seventh and Gerrv Ross tenth.
These results put Ashbury ahead of Sedbergh bv quite a margin.
However the cross-countrv proved to be our downfall. ln what
is usually our strongest event the following results were obtained.
Ross was -lth. Hardy 7th, Livingston Sth. Gill lllth and Rhodes llth.
Scott was forced to drop out before finishing. ln the slalom llardv
was 2nd, Ross 6th, Rhodes Tth. Scott Sth. Gill llth and Livingston
12th. The combined standings were not good enough. and Sedbergh
emerged victorious. However. Art Hardy with a lirst. a second and
a seventh was in first place in the individual standings.
50 THE ASI-IBURIAN
On February the 28th our biggest team, comprising Rhodes I.
Scott, Gill, Ross, Hardy, Livingston, Gamble I, and Hanson
journeyed to North Harley to compete against B.C.S. and L.C.C. in
the annual three way meet. Mr. D. L. Polk and Mr. XV. R. VVright
joined Mr. Gill in accompanying the team.
The meet opened in the morning at Hillcrest in a heavy drizzle. It
was a terribly mild, dull day and the lack of snow for late February
was unbelievable. The downhill, as usual, was held first and our best
man was Art Hardy who was Znd. Ross was 3rd, Scott 6th,
Livingston 9th, Hanson 15th, Gamble 19th and Rhodes 21st. The
terrible weather was on a par with our slalom results. Only three
finished the race, held late in the afternoon, and since we did not have
the required number of "times" our team was completely disqualihed
from this event. Our three finishers stood as follows, Scott 6th, Rhodes
8th, and Livingston 12th.
On Sunday morning on a combination of ice, rocks, sand, grass
and railway ties the cross-country was held. The conditions were
deplorable, but the team, although already defeated, put up an excel-
lent show to win the cross country by a wide margin. VVe gained
2nd, 3rd, 4th, Sth and 9th positions, through Scott, Rhodes Hardy,
Ross and Livingston respectively. Hence by a combination of careless
and unfortunate incidents we turned the Cochand Trophy over to
Despite this crushing blow we did not return empty handed.
David Scott, vice-captain of the team, was awarded the Price Trophy,
for the skier who compiles the greatest number of individual points
in the meet. This was the second time an Ashbury skier had won it
in its three year history.
For the second year the ski team sponsored an inter-house cross
country race. The result of the race would mean valuable points for
the winning house. Scott and Ross, of VVoollcombe and Connaught,
respectively, tied for the Hrst place in perfect conditions. Chris Gill
CXVJ was 3rd, D. Livingston CCD 4th, Mike Lawson OVJ Sth and Don
Gamble CVVD 6th.
During the course of the year despite the poor conditions the
various members of the team along with the coach did very well indi-
vidually. Hardy and Rhodes were elevated to "B" class skiers locally.
The main body of the team travelled to Mont Tremblant at the
end of january to ski in the Taschereau. Much valuable experience
was gained from this and various other trips. To end the season, Mr.
Gill, Rhodes and Scott went on a four day trip to Mt. Washington
to ski in Tuckerman's Ravine. This provided a fitting end to a season
which, although it shows no wins as a team, shows valuable experience
gained by all.

OR the first time in a good many years an organized Basltctball
Field was Conducted under the grand leadership of Nlr. A. ll. N.
Snelgrove. Xlr. Snelgrove in his first vear at Ashburv. but with years
of basketball coaching behind him, whipped a group' of inexperienced
but enthusiastic players into a fair semblance of training. and the
1953 season seems to hold great promise for the future of competitive
basketball in our School.
Practices started soon after the Christmas llolidays on the
renovated gym Hoot with some excellent workouts at the local
and at R.P.S.
Our first and only game was plaved against South Carleton lligh
School in Richmond. The team lost 'this game hut gained a wealth of
valuable experience for future use.
Klienhans led the scoring with 18 points. but luclt was not with
us in the first three periods although in the final minutes the Ashbury
squad settled down to some real scoring making the rinal score 60-34
52 THE ASHBURIAN
On Friday evening, March 13th, the annual school boxing finals
took place in the school gymnasium.
SHERBACH II vs N1cHoL - 50 lbs.
The fifty pounders put on the curtain raiser and showed off their
punching power. Although Sherbach was the more aggressive of the
two, Charlie Nichol kept piling up the points when Denis wasn't look-
ing. Charlie, as a matter of fact, floored Sherbach for a short count and
eventually took the decision.
STARNES II vs XYALKER Il - 60 lbs.
Young Starnes showed superior boxing ability all the way through,
but lValker bore up well and kept his opponent hopping. Starnes had
a good Crouch and a strong guard which was extremely effective. He
threw a good many sound blows to the jaw of his opponent who was
often left wide open, and eventually won the bout by a close margin.
Powicu. I vs STARN1-is I 70 lbs.
This bout moved along a great deal faster than the previous two.
Both boys were eager for the fray, and in this fight we began to see
some good footwork. Although Starnes was forever darting in with
good blows to the head and body, Powell scored a knock down in the
second round. This knock down seemed to turn the tables, and jeremy
pulled ahead to win the decision.
THE ASHBURIAN 53
HILLIARD vs. Lawsox lll - 80 lbs.
At the beginning of this bout Hilliard was cautious, and only
stepped in to throw a few hard punches which hurt his opponent.
Lawson seemed to be landing more punches, although they were not
very severe. In the latter part of the fight Hilliard brightened up and
began to fight in close. In the third he sent out a beautiful left which
almost finished Lawson, but the latter landed the greater number of
punches in the long run, and so eventually took the decision.
S'i'r:PHf3N vs Lawsox ll - 90 lbs.
Kenny Stephen showed himself to be a good little pounder in the
fifth fight of the evening. He seemed to have the edge all the way, as
Lawson tired early in the iight. But there was a good deal given as
well as taken by Billie, and Stephen had to keep on guard. As the
second round progressed, the action slowed down as both pugilists
were becoming tired. However, Stephen maintained his edge to come
out on top.
XYOOLLCOAIBE vs XlcA'NL'L'rv - 100 lbs.
This bout was a real slug fest. Both boys were in terrific con-
dition, and the fighting was so close that the final decision could have
gone either way. Indeed XlcA'Nulty won by only one point. Stephen
made up for his lack of skill by furious attacks to the body, and by
his efforts won the so much coveted Rhodes Trophy, given to the
loser showing the most spirited and determined display of the evening.
GRINISDALE vs Hnxmzasox - 135 lbs.
This was the surprise Hght of the evening. Both boxers had been
informed of their fixture only that day, and both were relatively new
to the game. Henderson scored many good single blows. especially
one to the ribs which had Grimy bewildered for a while. But Grimy
was the aggressor all the way, piling up the points with light taps to
the head and body as well as landing quite a few heavy left uppercuts
to the jaw, and succeeded in making john's nose bleed. Thus his
Win was no surprise to many.
Haxsox vs Ocnoa II - Heavyweight
This fight had the long and the short of it. Hanson. well over
six feet tall, had the reach on his opponent who, though no midget.
was a good deal shorter. But what he lacked in height. he made up
in Weight and punch power. His list was consistently working on
Hanson's body, and Dave had a hard time blocking this onslaught of
punches. Hanson wasted too much time dancing around and didn't
go in often enough. Thus Uchoa took the decision in a not too
54 THE ASHBURIAN
Kxowmox vs B.-XER - 127 lbs.
These two boxers were very familiar to all Ashburians, but this
was the first time they had appeared together in the ring. And like
the fine sluggers they are, they put up a terrific show, disappointing us
not a bit. Both boys lashed out with hooks from a low crouch, but
it would be difhcult to mention any particular blows because there
were so many good ones. Good sportsmanship prevailed all the way
through, and it was on a very close decision that Knowlton finally
GUINDI vs RIDDELL - 145 lbs. Novice Class
These two novices of rather the same ability put up a contest
that had fiashes of brilliance, but which lacked the glamour of the
more professional efforts. Both boys were sportsmanlike contestants,
but rather too cautious to be exciting. There were moments of good
hitting, and both fighters kept their heads during the onslaughts.
Guindi piled up the greater number of points to win.
G.-XMBLE vs Hicks - 165 lbs, Middleweight
Don Gamble put up a terrific fight against Mike Hicks, the boy
with the odds, previous success and superior condition. This last
factor overrode Don's greater efforts, and the former was evident in
Klike's blocking, ducking and feinting. Hicks feinted with all his
body, shoulders, fists and eyes, making him a tricky customer. Don put
his shoulder behind his heavy punches, and, although they were often
rendered harmless by Mikes neat blocking, they brought him close to
victory. Hicks has had better fights, and it was thought that if Gamble
could have continued for two rounds more his power would have had
more effect. As it was, Hicks won a great fight, and by his effort
claimed the Grant Cup, emblematic of ringcraft skill, for the second

THE CRUSSCOUNTRY RACES
o relieve the pressure on a crowded Spring Term the annual
fixture of the cross-countrv was moved forward to the autumn
and set for Thursday, November 6th, at 4.110 p.m.
There was, as usual, a satisfactory number turned out, as these
races offer a chance to everyone to contribute to the total points of his
house, even though he should not place first, second, or third in the
The one mile for Under ll Years was run first. Colin Starnes led
the field, making the course in seven minutes. Lawson Ill and Bray
fought for second place right to the gate. In the end, Lawson scuttled
in in 7'15", just five seconds ahead of Bray. The llouse points earned
in this event were as follows: Connaught 6'g, XYoollcombe -PL.
Soon the juniors began to pour in after their two mile run. Doug.
Cameron came in first with a time of 12'35". llc was closely followed
by a veteran of the course, Hiney, in 12'50". Ketcheson came in 25
seconds later to win third place honours. House points in this race were
totalled as follows: TYoollcombe 11, Connaught 10, Alexander 6.
Everyone waited excitedly to see the results in the three mile lnter-
mediate, which promisd to be a big battle. Finally, Halter Luyken
sprinted ahead of Kennedy to beat him by twenty-six seconds. Luyken's
time was 2O'27" and Kennedy, in his first Cross-Country Race, made
it in 2O'53". Mclnnes took third place, and made the run in 22'16".
House points looked like this at the end of the race: XYoollcombe 16.
Alexander 10, Connaught -1. The New House, Alexander, is to be con-
gratulated for its Hne showing in this race.
The Senior contest held very few surprises, in fact we had seen the
finishing order of the first three in previous years. The 'Aliraculous
Michaels" come in first and second, Lawson in 22'52", a good time for
the long 316-mile course, and Hicks in 2-1'15". Abbott stuck close
behind Hicks for the whole race and finished only thirty-five seconds
after him. C24'5O"J. House points in this race were quite one-sided:

There were 113 entrants, which is a good 63 per cent participation.

The Season of 1953 has been distinguished by an early start, a
full and enjoyable fixture list, and a great and growing enthusiasm.
Our wooden practice wickets enabled us to be in the Nets on March
21st, an exceptional Spring made feasible an unusual number of
matches, and the keenness of old and young, coaches and players,
veterans and novices alike, produced an atmosphere in which the game
could not fail to Hourish. The lst and Under 16 Xl's were again
coached by Mr. Brain and Mr. Powell, who harmonized their efforts
to produce the maximum of experience for both teams, while the 3rd
Field XI rejoiced in the stimulating supervision of Mr. Lawson. Thanks
are due to these Masters, who by their skill and interest did much to
maintain the standard of the School's Cricket.
The lst XI showed good form, especially in bowling, against
local clubs and scratch sides, in a series of matches every one of which
was a real contest. Their luck held in home and home fixtures against
B.C.S., and gave them the championship for a third year, a singular

a promising augury of their future prowess in senior company. The
3rd Field XI. profiting by their experience on the combined tour to
Lennoxville, showed marked improvement in their home fixture with
B.C.S. Prep. Their uniiagging spirit was a rewarding feature of one
of the best seasons within recent memory.
58 THE ASHBURIAN
1st XI CHARACTERS
T. XY. GRINISDALE: Colours 1952: a heady and enterprising right
hand medium pace bowler, who can move the ball in the air and
break back sharply. Can be relied on to play a captain's innings
when the going is tough, but tends in ordinary circumstances
to get himself out by playing his leg shots before he is well set.
As Captain, he revealed unselfishness, enthusiasm and Held
generalship which set the tone for a good season.
L. C. HART: Colours 1952: a forcing left hand bat who played some
Hne innings, but is liable to have a go before he has sized up the
opposition. A steady right hand slow medium bowler, who can
keep a length, and has achieved some sensational performances
with his off breaks. As Vice Captain, loyally seconded his
leader's efforts, and was of great help in the organization of the
XY. H. EASTTYOOD: Colours 1953: a medium pace left hand bowler
who can make the ball go both ways, gets plenty of life out of
the wicket, and can bowl all day. A sound right hand opening
bat with attractive off strokes, who gives his side a good start,
but has had little luck with his scores. A clever Held and thrower
as Third Man.
BAER: a solid left hand bat who made his runs when most needed:
has a full range of scoring strokes in front of the wicket and a
strong leg hit: a slow left hand bowler who can make the ball
go away from the bat, and brings one through with his arm now
and then: Helds keenly at Mid On.
JACKSON: a vigorous batsman who rose to the occasion in more
than one crisis, useful slow medium right hand bowler, and ex-
cellent field at Forward Short Leg.
VEISSID: greatly improved his batting, being particularly strong on
the leg, and has the invaluable faculty of producing runs when
others do not: sound field and catch at Mid Off.
ABBOTT: an exceptional field and catch in the Long Field, and a
hitter whose runs come when they count most. Has the happy
knack of breaking up dangerous opposing partnerships with the
unexpected run out which gives the bowlers just the extra help
KILNNILDY: a wicketkeeper who takes the ball well and is neat in
all his movements. His batting is marked by careful defence and
a good assortment of strokes, but his very keenness sometimes
produces a tenseness which proves his undoing.
RHODES I: a stylish left hand bat with strokes all round the wicket
and much improved defence, but must restrain himself against
bad baQls until his eye is in.
THE .-ISHBURIAN 50
ROSS l: as an opening batsman has played a vital part by taking the
edge off the opening attack: developed into an accurate thrower
at Fine Leg.
KNUXYLTON: with experience has unusual possibilities as a wicket-
keeper: a powerful thrower from any position. and a hitter who
can score from good bowling.
XYKLLS: a sound defensive left hand bat with latent punishing power:
fields energetically at lfxtra Cover. and has promise as a slow
right hand bowler.
BESSON: a sure catch and strong thrower on the boundary. who
pulled off some remarkable feats in the field.
XYIDDRINGTON: fields well in the Covers, and should develop
both as a stroke making batsman and slow right hand spin bowler.
SHURLY: plays a very straight bat and with more strokes should
be decidedly useful: always on his toes in the Held.
KERR: a safe catch on the leg side. and patient batsman: was quite
invaluable in his eiiiciency as Nlanager of the Xl.
SCOTT: a cool wicketkeeper and a left hand bat with some scoring
possibilities: did not have the best of fortune this season.
HORE: has potential ability in all three departments of the game:
should come along fast next year.
VERHAEGEN: played the unrewarding role of Scorer to perfection.
and showed great interest in practice: a splendid field and
BEAVERS: Captain of the Under 16 XI: a forcing left hand bats-
man and a lively right hand bowler of developing pace. who led
his team with judgment and enthusiasm. and made an important
contribution to the success of the season. Fields and throws well
in any position.
BIRBECK: bowls right hand round the wicket at just below medium
pace: keeps a steady length and makes the ball do something both
ways: plays the straightest of bats and should mature into a real
all rounder. His play was a mainstay of the Under 16 Xl all
year. Q g g

Grirnsdale as usual fulfilled a captain's chief duty by winning the
toss and Ashbury opened on a wet wicket and a slow outfield to the
steady bowling of R. Hart and Ashworth. The earlier batsmen. with
the exception of Baer, fared badly and it fell to Grimsdale to pull
things together. He played a real captains innings and was at the
wicket while 42 runs were added. Able assistance from jackson and
Abbott brought the score to 80, which against the sound bowling and
superb fielding of the B.C.S. Xl was a respectable total. The devastat-
ing attack of Eastwood, with good support from L. Hart and Grims-
dale, sent our opponents back for 33 in three minutes over the hour.
The Ashbury 2nd innings realized 51, Grimsdale, Baer and Veissid
batting well, but the rest failing against the fine out cricket of B.C.S.
VVith fourteen minutes to play, and the match lost beyond recall.
B.C.S. nailed their colours to the mast and went down gallantly in a
superb display of hitting, which brought 48 runs in 5 overs for only
1 wicket. Their rate of scoring has. according to Wisden. very rarely
been surpassed in any class of Cricket. The magnificent drives and
leg hits which earned them their runs were not mere slogging, but
attacking batmanship of the highest calibre. The cricketing pleasure
which Mitchell and XlacDougall aiiorded those lucky enough to see
them, and the sheer nonchalant courage of the whole gesture. raised
what had been a thrilling bllf dour contest to a higher plane al-

Once again Grimsdale called the spin and Ashbury opened on a
rain soaked ground to the bowling of R. llart, medium pace right
hand, and Ashworth slow right. Both bowlers kept an immaculate
length, Ashworth performing the remarkable feat of delivering 15
overs, of which 14 were maidens, for 2 runs and 5 wickets. The bat-
ting was correct, but it was difricult to get the ball away against the
Splendid stopping and throwing of the B.C.S. field, and runs came
slowly. L. Hart came up to scratch with one of his best knocks and
had 30 before lunch. Useful contributions by jackson and Abbott
enabled us to reach 72. B.C.S. batted steadily, after an opening at-
tempt to repeat their fireworks of the previous Saturday died with a
magnificent catch on the boundary by Besson off L. Hart, which dis-
posed of Mitchell when he had hit one line 6. There were many
anxious moments, but Eastwood closed up one end, taking wickets for
small cost at regular intervals. Brilliant fielding by Abbott and a
match winning spell by Grimsdale put the issue beyond doubt, with
Ashbury ahead by 17 runs. Wie had a few minutes batting before
stumps were drawn, but the match was for all practical purposes over,
leaving us in undisputed possession of the championship.

The Old Boys won the toss and put the School in to bat. Mac-
donald kept a good length with considerable pace and lift off the pitch,
and was well supported by Smith and Snelling from the north end.
It was immediately evident that the School team was being shown what
a carefully set attacking Held could do, for Capart from a few byes and
miss-hitsj the opening few batsmen could produce nothing and two
wickets had fallen for 6 runs in the first half hourg ten minutes later
the third man was out with the score at 12 after 40 minutes play. Hart
relieved the tedium and hit out manfully for a few minutes but his and
another wicket had fallen for the low total of 27 an hour after the start.
Old Boys' hopes were now high as another batter was sent back
before the tea interval for the addition of only 12 to bring the score
to 39 for 6 after 77 minutes of play. The copious tea was evidently
what the tail-enders needed, for although the snail-like scoring pace was
maintained, the bowling had evidently lost its 3.00 p.m. sting and XVells
and Veissid contributed about 30 in a further hour of stubborn if
awkward resistance. Another wicket or two fell but still no declaration
until 6.05 when the score finally reached 89 after 163 minutes.

Contrary to preliminary reports, the Haverford party turned out
to be composed of students of a liberal arts college of the familiar
United States pattern, and not at all a group of school boys as we
had been led to believe.
Copious rain fell during the night of june 8th before the game,
and the XNCI mat was only a hindrance to the quicker local bowlers
who were ineffective until well after lunch. For the visitors, Barwick
J. was the most accomplished bat as he scored his 46 runs with very
correct strokes including 3 dazzling square cuts and several powerful
hooks. His opening partnership with Gundry fCapt.j produced 42
runs, and Innes and Singh contributed 19 and 13 respectively. For
the Ottawa side, only Grimsdale bowled with any effect and took 5
for 12 on the dried mat. The visitors were finally dismissed after
scoring 112 in just under 3 hours.
lYhen the local team went in to bat, three valuable wickets fell
during the half hour before tea. On the resumption, as four more fell
while the score stood unchanged at 27, the remaining Ottawa bats
had little hope of forcing a draw and the visitors won handily by 71
runs. Singh was their most effective bowler, taking five for fifteen
with his slows, while Barwick showed that he could use both bat and

URING the evening of Friday, February 27, a capacity crowd at
the Little Theatre saw the Ashbury-Elmwood Players maintain
their reputation for dramatic ability. It must have been diflicult to
improve over the standard set last year, however, many people felt that
this production was the best for many years.
ark feature of the evenings entertainment was a curtain raiser. Act I,
Scene I of Hamlet, acted with great dramatic effect by some of the
smaller boys of Ashbury. The cast was: Francisco. Richard Lake,
Bernardo, Michael Bogert, Horatio, Seymour Hamilton, Nlarcellus,
Bruce Hiney. Peter Carver was an awe inspiring ghost. The innovation
was successful, and we hope this has set the pattern for future years.
The main bill was Dear Ruth, a modern comedy of war time
domestic problems. The plot describes a 'teen age girl who feels im-
pelled to do her bit to further the war effort. In between tricking her
family into visiting the blood bank and sending telegrams to the XYar
Department to impress on them the potential value which women have
in war time, she decides to bring cheer to the hearts of various members
of the armed forces by carrying on passionate correspondence with
them in the name of her older sister, Ruth. Of course, one of the
love-lost young men soon arrives on the scene and amusing situations
70 THE ASHBURIAN
develop as Ruth knows nothing of her
younger sister's activities. Misunderstandings
are frequent but all ends well and the arrival
of a sailor fresh from the Pacific to claim his
own Dear Ruth finds Ruth and the first arrival
already on the way to the marriage bureau.
The cast showed more than usual talent.
Dora, the maid, was well acted by jo Anne
Davis. janet Hanson was a most mature and
convincing mother, and Thomas Grimsdale as
the father, judge VVilkins, was suitably gruff.
jennifer XVoollcombe as the girl who is
responsible for all the confusion was excel-
lent. David Kennedy played Lieut. XVilliam
Seawright, and Ruth was acted by jane
Mulholland. Both gave a fine, zesty per-
i'Be8in'WfSl PICHSCFV' formance and helped to keep the play rol-
ling smartly along. This quality of finger-
snapping promptness in my opinion was an important factor in making
the play such a success. One of the funniest entrances which I have
seen on any stage was that of XVilliam Eastwood playing Albert
Kummer, Ruth's prim fiance. He looked just like Charlie Chase of the
dear dead silent film days. janet Chapman as Martha Seawright and
Peter Gilbert as Sergeant Vincent were well cast. Peter Carver, having
removed the ghostly pallor of Hamlet's father, put on black face to
come on stage as Harold Klobbemeyer, the sailor.
Mr. Belcher and Mr. Devine are to be congratulated for providing
the audience with a most entertaining evening and also for giving to
the cast the grease paint scented thrill of a success - a thrill which most
of them will remember for the rest of their lives.
There are many other behind the scene workers who helped to
make the plays so successful. Mrs. VV. M. McA'Nulty again produced
a natural effect in her make up. Mrs. Murray of the Little Theatre
assisted in this department. Very striking costumes for the scene
from Hamlet were provided by Mrs. VV. Hamilton. Miss M. Bray,
wardrobe mistress of the Little Theatre gave valuable help in costuming
for Dear Ruth and Miss Burritt, also of the Little Theatre, contributed
to the stage furnishings.
The stage managers were VV. Slattery, G. Nueman and M.
Hogben. Mr. Wfayland was business manager. He made the
evening a financial success by filling the hall. Very important role.
THE ASHBURIAN 71
PQETRY READING CONTEST
HE fourth consecutive annual competition in the reading of
poetry was held in the school chapel on Sunday, Xlay libthi and
was again admirably contested by a small but enthusiastic mnnber of
candidates. As Xlr. A. B. Belcher, the convener, remarked, it was
gratifying to see so much interest in an indoor exercise on an outdoor
As heretofore, the competitors were divided into three groups -
Senior, Middle, and junior. Iiach read three pieces - an announced
set piece, a selection of the candidates own choosing, and a passage
designated during the course of the competition and hence unprepared
by the candidate. The set pieces were as follows: Senior, The Lake
Isle of Innisfree, by XY. B. Yeats, Xliddle, Sea Fever, by john .Xlasefieldg
junior, The Twenty-third Psalm.
It is no exaggeration to say that the task of selecting the winners
was a most exacting one, and the school was extremely fortunate in
securing the offices of Professor G. B. johnston of the llnglish
Department of Carleton College, who was kind enough to act as judge
again this year. Not only did he adjudge the winners with great skill
and excellent judgment, but his informal talk to the boys about poetry
generally, and his criticisms on their individual readings, were so dis-
cerning, constructive and, above all, so obviously enthusiastic and
sincere, that no one present could fail to gather not only profit but
enjoyment from them. In general terms he spoke highly of the calibre
of the readings in all three groups and encouraged further interest
in the reading of verse which, he said, was or could be. a source of very
real delight all through one's life - if the interest were developed at
an early age. In referring specifically to the individual readings, he
first of all pointed out that the adjudicator has inevitably theories and
perhaps prejudices in the matter of technique. His personal inclination
lay toward an emphasis on melody rather than an intellectual or
dramatic technique. He pointed out that the readings he had heard
in the competition had tended toward intellectual and dramatic
emphasis, with rhythms played down almost to the phrasing of
dramatic prose. He suggested that the natural pauses, even at the end
of lines, should be observed, otherwise the melodic value of the verse
was impaired. "Any other interpretation," he said, in effect, "is as though
the reader were saying to his audience: 'This is really quite sensible
stuff, you know, it can be made almost as intelligible as prose." In
the main, however, he expressed himself as delighted with the quality
of the afternoon's performances, in the interest shown by the boys,
and in the rather unexpectedly high level of ability and feeling evi-
dent among the competitors. Our sincerest thanks to him for his

PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST
His contest was held on Sunday, May 24th and the list of entries
was as follows: From the Senior School, Carne, Carver, Clark I,
speaking respectively on Spirit, Friendship, and The Leaders of the
Third German Reich. The only contestant in the Middle School
division was XVoollcombe, whose speech dealt with the activities of the
Mau Maus, while the junior School was represented by Hamilton II
fThe Two Elizabethsj and Gale CDomestic Protection against the
The speeches of both Carne and Carver are reproduced elsewhere
in the magazine and need little comment here except to say that We
think them an extremely creditable effort in their written form. They
were delivered with a high degree of technical excellence marred only
by all too frequent references to the text. Clark I surpassed both
these performers in this respect, as he spoke entirely without benefit
of written material, nevertheless the merits of Carver's speech out-
weighed Clark's advantages in the opinion of the adjudicators Messrs.
D. L. Polk and A. B. Belcher, and the former was awarded first place.
IYooQlcombe, for the Middle School, spoke with his usual authority
and clarity, his material was informative and well organized and, in
spite of the fact that he was the sole contestant in his division, his
speech well merited an award.
The contributors of the two juniors, Gale and Hamilton, are both
worthy of praise. The former, however, expressed himself with some-
what more ease and fluency than did the latter and was adjudged the
winner for the second consecutive year.

74 THE ASI-IBURIAN
HE day of the Coronation of Her Majesty Elizabeth II was
marked at Ashbury, as elsewhere in the Commonwealth, by a
complete cessation of work. Examinations gave way, for the time
being, to an all day participation in the wide spread celebrations with
which Ottawa paid tribute to the occasion. Seven thousand troops
paraded before the reviewing stand on Parliament Hill and approxi-
mately 100,000 spectators milled through the Hag lined and bunting
decked streets and under flowered arches, to the accompaniment of
massed bands, carillon peals, battery salvoes and the roar of jet fighter
The school's formal contribution consisted of a squad of sixty
which marched off soon after 9 a.m. to act as ushers in the reviewing
stand for the trooping of the colours by the Governor Generalls Foot
Guards, with which unit the cadet corps is affiliated. After a box
lunch at 1.30 p.m. they assisted as ushers at the drumhead service held
at the National Museum.
The rest of the school was at liberty to spend the day watching
the glowing spectacle which will be long remembered by them all.

THE CADET CCDRPS
ODERN education aims at keeping a nice balance between mental
and physical development. No single phase of school life offers
as much to this as the Cadet Programme.
From a rather shaky start, under a completely new slate of officers
the corps developed into what we feel was our best effort in several
years. Rifle shooting, with both the .303 service riHe and .22 small
bore, training films, and two trips to the Connaught Ranges added
interest to the weekly classes of Drill, First Aid, Signals and S.A.T.
The Corps paraded with the Governor General's Foot Guards
on Remembrance Day, Nov. 11, and we held our annual Church
Parade at the Cathedral on Sunday, May 17. judging from the com-
ments of specialists and friends the corps conducted themselves in the
usual fine Ashbury tradition.
The highlight of the year came on Thursday, May 14. Annual
Inspection, when we were reviewed by Major General H. A. Sparling,
C.B.E., D.S.CD., C.O., Vice Chief of Staff, who addressed the cadets and
made the following presentations.

winning another bar to the XY. O. Finlay Trophy for 195 3.

BRIEF HISTORICAL SKETCH OF
No. 137 ASHBURY COLLEGE CADET CORPS
HE Cadet Corps has been in existence for the past 48 years. It
commenced training under Sgt. Major Cowardine, in 1905, on the
old school location on Argyle Avenue, not far from the site of the

to the present strength of 126, all ranks. In addition to which the junior
Cadet Corps now numbers approximately 60.
In the early years the Corps confined its activities to drill and
physical training. In the year 1912 a signalling section was introduced,
using Semaphore and Heliograph. XYhen the School moved to its
present quarters, where there is a small indoor range, great emphasis was
placed on rifle shooting, and the School placed favourably in a great
many local and National competitions.
The Corps' first formal inspection was put on at the request of
the Duke of Connaught, in the Spring of 1913. In 1919 H.R.H. The
Princc of Hales inspected the Corps at Government House, and com-

plimented the Corps on their smart turnout and soldierlv bearing, and
rewarded the boys by requesting the lleadmaster to grant them a half
holiday, which custom has been carried on since that time for an
exceptionally good parade. The School has been honoured on many
occasions by visits from Vice-regal personages, The lfarl of Xlinto,
by Earl Grey and by The Earl of .-Xthlone. ln 1951 lfield Xlarshal,
Viscount Alexander, invited the Corps to put on a Review for him,
and he was extremely complimentary, and delivered an inspiring talk
to the Cadets. During his stay in Canada he visited the School
numerous times, and was often present during our regular training
Quite a large number of past and present Senior Officers started
their Military Training in the ranks of the Ashbury Cadet Corps. Two
of the most recent are Lieut. General Guy Simonds, Chief of Staff, and
Brigadier Pat Bogert, who, until recently, commanded the Canadian
Forces in Korea.
The Corps was well represented in both XYorld XYars. A memorial
plaque hangs in the School Chapel, listing those who gave their lives in
the service of their country.
The Cadet Corps is affiliated with the very distinguished Regiment,
the Governor General's Foot Guards, and the affiliation has been a
source of many interesting and instructive parades and informal meet-

Colleges, and this Corps has always been a good source of supply for

THE oLD Boys' wrmqrixn
N October 25th and 26th, the School welcomed a large number of
Old Boys who came to revisit the scenes of their youth and to
renew schoolboy friendships. Those who had not been here since
their graduation must have been surprised at the many alterations which
Ashbury has undergone in recent years.
After registration, a reception and buffet lunch were held in the
gymnasium. During the afternoon the School played a football match
against Lower Canada College. The game is reviewed elsewhere in
these pages. After the game the Chairman of the Board of Governors
was host at a reception in Rhodes Hall. following which the School
invited the Old Boys and their guests to dinner in Symington Hall. The
welcoming address of the Headmaster was in his usual friendly and
witty style. A Supper Dance at the Country Club completed the day.
Cn Sunday morning at ll.0O in the School Chapel was held the
traditional Old Boys' Service, made more impressive this year by the
unveiling of the Nlemorial XYindow and the re-dedication of the

OLD BOYS' NOTES
Here are a few recent items of interest. The Bulk of Old Bovs'
activities has been covered, we hope, in the News Letters which have
been sent out to you at intervals during the year.
ALAN HOLMES, '47, has had rich and varied experiences in the PLISE
few years. He has given slide lectures based on his tours of Italy,
Spain and Portugal. He was awarded First Prize for Landscape
Painting in a nation-wide competition held in the U.S.A. in 1951.
He found some time to secure a AIaster's Degree in Civil Engin-
eering from Yale in 1952, and is now serving his required two
years in the U.S. Army. His address is c o International Students'
Center, 406 Prospect Street, New Haven. Connecticut. USA.
ROBERTO ROSSI LONGHI, '39, is Executive Assistant of U.S.A.

OLD BOYS' ASSOCIATION-AliJNTRICAL BRANCH
The Montreal Branch of the Old Boys' Association held its annual
dinner on Alay 12. The lnleadinaster spoke after the dinner, and the
school movies, taken by Alr. Perry, were shown. The lilni in colour,
has recorded major events in Ashbury life during a typical school
year. The following ofhcers were elected:
President-H. Ronalds, '37, Vice-President-XY. ll. Wilson, '19,
2nd Vice-President-j. F. Wilson, '30, Treasurer-C. llampson, '-Hi.

JACKSON-"The girl across the road."
jake is our highly industrious head-boy this year, whose perpetual beam-
ing smile lit up all the dark corners of the school. He kicked around as
captain of soccer, and also took up skiing this year. Graham improved
admirably in cricket and has become one of the team's most sylish bats-
men. He spent a major part of the year sitting at his desk working f?J
while taking benefit of Geoff's opera glasses to peer across the road. He
is captain of Woollcombe House and wears a "W" proudly, perhaps t00
proudly. He strutted impressively about as 2 I.C. of the corps and is
willing to join whichever service will provide the most gold braid. Jake
intends to return to us next fall after his European tour this summer.
CARNE-'tBe not as the hypocrites."
Geoff has been kidded about his Australian birth so much in the last
six years that it would be best to leave well enough alone. Our genial
Captain of the Boarders' harsh voice is painfully familiar to those boys
who err in their ways, this holds true when he takes command of the
cadet corps as its O.C. Besides being a star soccer player and in general
an all-round athlete, he showed his Hair for the arts by winning the
Poetry Reading Contest and being editor of the Ashburian. Unfortunately
Geoff is leaving us this year for his native land and we regretfully say
"bon voyage" and wish him good luck in the future.
ABBOI l-"I learn from experience, not advice."
It is quite an assignment to tabulate Lew's versatile interests and ac-
complishments in and out of school, because for six years he has been a
busy little guy. He has played first team soccer, hockey, and cricket for
years, being vice-captain of the form this year, and yet has been able to
keep his marks up to an outstandingly high level and is probably headed
for many prizes. Lewis has been elevated to the position of Captain of
the Day Boys, President of the International Relations Club, and sergeant
of No. 2 platoon. He is also Captain of Connaught house. Being an
assistant editor he will probably cut half of this out, so I may as well
CLARK-"Eric had a little lamb."
Eric has been with us for four years and his shock of blond hair, his
streamlined nose, his knowledge of aeronautics, and his line sense of
dress have become a land mark at Ashbury. He has played soccer during
his years at the school, captaining our glorious team for one of these
years. In the winter he tried hard to adapt himself to hockey, and now
he is busy trying to control his power on the tennis court. He also
insists that he works hard, and as long as he is forced to, he does. His
concience bothered him though, for he couldn't get to sleep at night
until he started counting Lambies fa Greek species of sheepl. His plans
for next year are vague, but wherever Lew is, there is Eric.
HOGBEN-"Alas, that lore, so gentle in liix view, xlnrflzlti be
so tyrannous and rough in proof."
Murray started the year by enthusiastically playing lst tr-am football, .uid
then spent a great deal of time hattlinig his way through anotln-r loyi-
affair. In the winter he skied and spent his spare time tryinu to amusi-
his fellow prefects with his characteristic remarks. Murray is clistinguislierl
as being the only Yankee-Zulu in captivity and he seems to he proud
of it. One of his greater feats is reading in chapel in such a nianiu-r as
to bame his enraptured congregation. This summer he ilitclltls to work

was an efficient prefect, he is generally liked hy all, and we look forward
to seeing his distinguished frame around Ashbury next year.
LE AICJYNE-dPll7Il'f'lldlif-Y is the Politellcss of I,fillL'UJ'.N
"Lehi" is really a great guy, he tells me. "Ego, me, mihi . . Hay is
an intellectual force in the Prefect body, hut his is a hard, cold intel-
lect and he holds nothing but contempt for amateur poets and artists.

Ceotfs ideal. He and Geoff stand and moan as they watch the "old
regime" pass away, day by day. All they can do is lash at each other
with their carefully thought out "coups de mots". The only field in which
Ray is at all modest is sports, and here it is unwarranted, for he made
the lst soccer, hockey, and tennis teams-and the Connauuht Cricket

Laurie works so hard that he never has any time left for sport or music.
school activities, or extra-curricular activities. No, actually, Laurie has
his finger in every pie-and he makes sure he gets a large mouthful from
each. He captained the lst Football and Hockey Teams, and vice-
captained the Cricket XI. Nobody could deny that he has done a wonder-
ful job all year as sports leader. He was made a Prefect at Christmas
and soon showed that it was an excellent choice. Many people feel that
he's "just too sensible". He was also sergeant of the notorious 1st Pla-
toon and we sympathize with him here. You know. what with his com-
placency, it's a wonder he's gone so far in life!
V35 V li
BARR-This was Georges first year and he really hit the jackpot. Soon
after the start of the year he was made captain of Alexander House.
He was on the first football team, managed the hockey team, and
captained the basketball team. He was also made a lieutenant, due
to his rank and experience in other corps previously. He was of
great assistance here. George is a very independent guy, and there
isn't much that bothers him. He is going on to Agricultural College
at Guelph, and we think he should do well. The girls of Rockcliffe
are wild about him, but he appears to prefer those from Kemptville,
his own town. Fifty cents almost persuaded him though!
CARVER-Pete's cackle and cocaphonous comments are a perpetual
joy to his form mates, but sometimes the bane of Mr. Sibley. He
has his serious moments however, especially when confronted with
anyone or anything to do with Latin. If not a stellar performer
in the school sporting activities, he is one of their foremost sup-
porters and may be seen at every football game. QLook for the guy
in the crazy hatj. Peter has also played soccer and cricket, while
in the winter term he worked in the play and the glee club. CHe
made a most mysterious ghostj. Of course he also had many duties
to attend to as room captain, a corporal and head librarian, but
nothing could dampen that guy's wit. His main activity is attend-
ing relatives' weddings and forgetting to come back. Pete says he
is going to the University of Toronto in New York next Year.
C ILBERT-Peter, having been at the school for ten years, and attain-
ing high marks, has reached that ultimate goal of not being re-
THE ASHBURIAN 91
quired to attend French classes. Perhaps it was this superior intelli-
gence that won him a part in the school play, or then again may
be he was drawn into it by his fascination for certain of the lflm-
wood beauties. Cadets play a large part in Petc's activities, as he
is a platoon commander and an ardent instructor. 'lihe first foot-
ball team also owes him a debt of thanks for his line management.
GRIMSD.-XLR-Bill Grimsdale, commonly known as "Grimv", is here
again with us from Venezuela. This vear he was on the first soccer
team, tried his feet at skiing down atithe park, and was in the play
last Easter, which, incidentally, was a tremendous success and '11
triumph for one of his talents. lle reaches his acme as captain of
cricket where he bowls out XYoollcombites continually with his
body-line bowling. One of his interests Cl wonder whv J 'is the state
of North Carolina. He has plans to go to "merry old' lfnglandu to
take up chemical engineering next year. i
HANSON-Dave Hanson, of wide fame as a ticket collector for
Ottawa and district, is our longest lad, both in torso and hair. Dave
is "some" cadet. He also played second team football and in the
winter made a valiant attempt to win the heavyweight champion-
ship. He was a member of the notorious ski team. He has now
retired to supervising track and field and going steady, why is he
going steady? XVe know, he knows, but does she know? Dave
hopes to attend Carleton College next year.
HARDY-Art believes in moving from school to school each year,
and this year he has wound up with us, liberally donating his
earthy cynicism. Arthur just doesn't go for these modern con-
traptions like automobiles: he prefers to walk or ski. Talking
about skiing, we must congratulate .-Xrt on his performance
with the lst team. He also played 2nd football and house soccer.
Arthur and Gerry spent those delightful moments before maths
class arguing about our mayoress, and we somehow felt that
neither of them knew what he was talking about. He plans to
work at Coal Lake this summer, but with Art there it should be
pretty hot. Next fall he is going to join some other notable Old
Ashburians at Carleton College.
HORE-Although Dave's mental ability may not be up to that of some
of his classmates, this has not prevented him from doing his best
to contribute, in his own small but unique way, to the variety
and originality of our form, and every time he opens his mouth,
he never disappoints us, for he invariably ends up with both
feet down his windpipe, simply choking to death. Among his
many other accomplishments this year, Davie has found time to
send a fleet of water carriers to India, write a new Cif not betterj
version of the Canadian Boat Song, and, lastly, to make up and
edit his own complete revised set of French grammar notes Cauto-
graphed edition 31.00 extraj. Dave has contributed to school
life by playing first team football and indulging in all kinds of
antics during the cricket season, while lately he has been pro-
moted to the rank of sergeant in the cadet corps. He also served
as the main impetus behind the formation of Ashbury's first bas-
ROSS-Gerrv has become an integral part of almost every school activ-
ity there is. As well as being vice-captain of second team foot-
ball Cnice interceptionll, he took part in first team skiing and
cricket - both of which he starred in. He was promoted to a
sergeant in the smartest colour party ever. Because this is his
second year in Senior French, he has been appointed to the part
of assistant advisor fwe still don't know who appointed himj.
All kidding aside, Gerald has become a landmark during his long
vacation here, small, admittedly, but nevertheless a landmark,
and is a real square. Best of luck at R.M.C.!
F ORM VIB
CLARK II-Howard CMarkj Clark is in his Hrst year at Ashbury
coming to us from Lisgar Collegiate. He played his first football
here this year and proved very helpful to the first team. His hard
tackling gained him the 'Wlost Improved Player" award. Howie
played cricket for the first team this spring and seemed to be
doing very well. It's at letter-writing that he really shines though.
As he is one of the hardest workers in the class he should be back
next year to polish ofi' his senior.
GAMBLF I-Don is the senior member of a well represented clan here
at Ashbury. He performed very well at football this year and
received well-earned colours in this field. He was a skier for the
first team and a novice cricketer. A great supporter of XVooll-
combe, Don put all he had into every house contest except
hockey. just read about his boxing! No longer able to skip, Sgt.
Gamble did wonders with the junior corps, a group well known
for its shattering effects on human mental stability. If he doesn't
kill himself working his fingers to the bone this summer, we hope
to see Don back with us in September.
THE ASHBUIUAN 93
G-XNIBLE ll-Dave, the second of the three brothers. has been at
Ashbury for two years and has become known for his quick hand
at Algebra. He played Hrst string end for the seconds in football
and spends his spring evenings on the tennis court. His respect
for school officers is well-known around Ashbury. He will be
back next year to try his Senior. Best of luck Dave!
HICKS-Mike, well known as Hicksy, but perhaps better known as
"Farmer", is VIB's agricultural prodigy. Mike was the glory of
the second football team this year, came second in the cross-
country race, and is a track and field star. XYhen it comes to
boxing Hicksy isnft the boy to spar with. He won the cup for
the light-heavyweight championship. and also the Ringcraft
award. Hicksy's gruff voice may be heard echoing across the
parade square as he fulfils his duties as sergeant-major of our cadet
corps. Mike is destined for Australia this summer not to return
for a number of years. It is Nlike's intention to attend college
there and eventually fulfil his ambition to be a ranch-owner. The
ski-cabin and Marlborough street will miss you, Nlike.
HOLLAND I-Tony is a tall, lean, and good-natured lad fwhen not
told to do anythingb who rendered waluable services to the first
football and hockey teams. Tony is not noted for his enthusiasm
towards the cadet corps. but at least he was present for the in-
spection. Another of his sporting achievements is being a member
of the tennis team and he played against Northwood school in
this springls tournament. From all appearances. Chemistry is
Tony's academic forteg in fact he once wrote fifteen pages on
such an exam-result ISW. Nevertheless he is out to get his junior
matric this year and we wish him luck.
KEMP-Dick is a native of Ottawa and is now completing his tenth
year at Ashbury. He is Adjutant of our well-known cadet corps
and won the 'fklost Efficient Cadet" award. Vlfhen not in the
class room, or helping in the tuck shop, Dick can be found in the
"sigs" room working at nothing. He played second team foot-
ball and helped the juniors in cricket. Richard says he will be
back next year, then he hopes to attend XlcGill to obtain a degree
KERR-lYilkie has been with us for two years, but is leaving next
year. His future occupation as he says is, "You tell me and welll
both know." He does a lot of helpful work around the school,
as Ass't Projectionist, a Tuck-Shop salesman, and a morale-
booster. Wilkie has managed First Soccer and Cricket as Well as
occasionally playing for both ICHIHS. Good luck wherever you

could have shown us all how to play the strokes during the
Cricket Home Games, for we saw him batting the ball around
all the time on the sidelines.
M.-XTTHEVVS-He may be better known as the "Quiet Man", and
is a new boy at Ashbury this year, coming to us from Pickering
College. He had adapted himself well to school life. He was a
prominent member of the First Football Team and is now learn-
ing to play Cricket. Matty is a keen skier and may often be seen
taking the bumps on the Cote. He hopes to go to McGill next
year to take medicine.
NCEXIAN-jerry has managed to take part in almost every school
activity in as widely diversified fields as first team Football, Hockey
and Tennis, Chief Projectionist and Vice-Captain of the Butt-
Room. And in spite of all these responsibilities resting on his
shoulders, I don't think we've ever seen him lose his sunny smile
and pleasant disposition. He did an excellent job as lst platoon
commander and otherwise showed his authority by captaining the
largest room in the school. jerry should do well in the restaurant
business, for besides merely running the Tuck-Shop throughout
THE ASHBURIAN 95
the year, he has been the guiding force behind the providing of
refreshments for the House Dances. the Formal and the lst Cricket
Team. Everyone who attended the School Dance owes jcrrv
a special debt of gratitude for his untiring work. Next year he

OCHO.-X I-Och, our Heet-foot captain of the Spanish Armada. can
often be seen travelling down "D" deck doing his chorus-line
step to the tune of H.Xl.S. Pinafore. llc proved himself valuable
on the lst Football Team. The rest of the time he managed to
avoid strenuous exercise except for his fourth period in the
morning or constantly practising his pyramids. Oscar was made
a Room-Captain at Xmas. and seems to be handling Henderson all
right. Next year. Och plans to go to Tulane L'niversity way
down in New Orleans. Good luck, Och!
SCOTT-This year Dave has curbed his external affairs and done
quite brilliantly around the school as a result. His cadet-work
was so outstanding. both in the class-room and on the parade
square. that he won a special award. After doing a bang-up job
with George in No. 3 Platoon. he threw his etforts into that smart
colour-party. Dave received colours for 2nd Team Football
which he captained. He captured the Price Trophy for the
largest individual aggregate at the triangular ski-meet. He played
cricket, and was a Glee Club member too. but in the third term
he settled down to work. for he is now determined to join the
boys at St. jean. Dave being one of 6-B's brighter efforts Cal-
though this is not saying muchb, we feel he will make a great
success of his military career. Good luck anvwav. Scottv!
Vi -XLKER-Phil's shock of hair has been the subject of many a
controversy during his three years at Ashbury. Question: does
he use fertilizer or does it grow like that lughj naturally? Phil's
forte is racing cars and he can tell you everything about them -
from their "boundless acceleration" to the last and most insigni-

its members: Nlr. T. XY. Lawson. Xlr. bl. XY. llastie and Xlr. lf. XY. T.

do two years of postgraduate work. while both Nlr. llastie and Nlr.

and said he hoped they would not forget us but would pay us a visit
whenever opportunity presented itself.

Christmas Candlelight Service, the memorial window. the choir. From
there he moved to athletics and the highly successful Cadet Corps In-
spection, and to the annual play presented by the Dramatic Societies of
Ashbury and Elmwood, and extended thanks to those members of the
Staff who were responsible.
The tone of the school he felt had been generally good - partic-
ularly respecting care of rooms. However. he pointed out several
aspects of behaviour which must be looked to and improved next year.
The Headmaster then spoke with gratification of the new build-
ing now under construction and of the campaign for the raising of
funds. He thanked the Nurse-Nlatron, Nliss Bray. and .Nliss Short. the
dietician, for their good work throughout the year. He also com-
mended the prefects and house captains. for their contribution toward
the smooth operation of school machinery and wished luck and a suc-
cessful journey to our three boys. Kennedy. Killaly and Rhodes I. who
were attending the Coronation as Ashbury representatives to the Com-
monwealth Youth Movement, which had arranged the tour.
Athletic awards were then announced and. probably the most
eagerly awaited item on the agenda. the junior Nlatric results. The
assembly was brought to a close by three cheers for the Headmaster.

by all members of the school.

HE finals of the Track and Field events were run off on the
morning of the Closing Day. This was the first such occasion
in many years when we were not blessed with perfect weather but this
year it was far from perfect. The first items on the program were run
off under a light sprinkle of rain and by the end of the morning con-
ditions had still further deteriorated. However, from the viewpoint of
the participants there may have been advantages which were not shared
by the spectators: the former were certainly "water-cooled".
At the conclusion of the events the prizes were presented by A. R.
lX'IacLaren, Esq., a present member of the Board of Governors and a
parent who, himself, set several track records as a bov at Ashbury.
THE ASHBURI.-IN IIS
Hi: afternoon of Thursday, june -Ith, marked the Closing exercises
for the school year. Owing to inclement weather they were held
in the gymnasium supplemented by Rhodes I Iall, which was wired with
a PMA. System for the overflow of the gathering. This was the iirst
time in many years that we have been unfortunate in our weather for
Closing day, and were forced as a result, to move indoors for the cere-
mony, but it was agreed that there were many advantages. The
audience was more compactly arranged and was undisturbed by dis-
tracting influences such as low-flying aircraft.
The visitors on the platform consisted of: The Chairman of the
Board of Governors, E. N. Rhodes, Esq., and Alrs. Rhodes, The I lead-
master and Mrs. Perry, The Honourable D. C. Abbott, Xlrs. Abbott
and Miss Abbott, L. D. IYilgress, Lisq., Colonel Roger Rowley, Deputy
Chairman of the Board of Governors, and Nlrs. Rowley, Captain G. A.
VVoollcombe, President of the Uttawa Old Boys' Association, and Alrs.
Viioollcombe, Colonel -I. D. Fraser and Alrs. Fraser, Captain XY. G.
Ross and Mrs. Ross, R. S. Southain, Ifisq., A. R. Nlaclaaren. IfiSl1.g Nlr.
and Mrs. S. Irvin, Mr. and Mrs. Charles G. Gale. The School was
privileged to entertain as its guests DUI only such a distinguished com-
pany, but a group of individuals each of whom has been personally
associated with the School and its interests.
Mr. Rhodes, as Chairman, opened the exercises by welcoming the
guest speaker, Mr. Abbott, and the assembled visitors and parents. He
then introduced the Head Boy, Graham jackson. who delivered the
Valedictory address, the text of which is reproduced elsewhere in these
After this the Headmaster gave his report on School affairs and
was followed by the Honourable D. C. Abbott who prefaced his re-
marks by saying he had been sternly admonished by his son. Lewis. to
be, above all things, brief. Alt. Abbott implicitly followed this directive.
ln the course of his brief remarks he complimented the School and
paid particular tribute to the quality of the Yaledictory address.
The prizes were then awarded as follows: The Academic prizes
were presented by The Honourable, D. C. Abbott. I.. D. Hilgress,
Esq., and Colonel R. Rowley. Athletic prizes were presented by Cap-
tain G. A. lVoolIcombe, and Special Prizes by Captain XY. G. Ross.
At the conclusion of the formalities the gathering adjourned for
refreshments to the marquees which had been erected on the lawn.

124 THE ASHBURIAN
Delivered by G. P. Iacleson, Head Boy
Mr. Chairman, Xlr. Headmaster, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and
VK'hen I first realized that as Head Boy I would have the honour
of making the Valedictory address, I began to wonder what was to be
my interpretation of the word "Valedictory". Vlfho is saying goodbye
to whom? IYhile I realize that, of course, the valedictorian should not
speak from a completely egotistical viewpoint, but rather on behalf
of his whole class when he expresses a goodbye to the institution in
which their education and affections are rooted, still, it is normally
understood that he is a member of the body who is going away from
the school. I, of course, have to be an exception, for I sincerely hope
to return next year.
However, I think I can quite well imagine what is would be like
to be leaving Ashbury, as they will be at the end of june, and as I shall
be this time next year. I already know what the school means to me,
and after all it takes no great stretch of the imagination to picture your
feelings when the time has come to lose forever something that has
become a part of you. First of all, as I have said, the school, or any
mould in which you are cast for 6, 5, 4 or even 3 years, during your
teens, is bound to stick. XYhen you are wrenched away from it, the
experience is likely to be a painful one. XYhen that day comes, it is a
day on which you remember, 1101 the small irritations or imagined
grievances, but the good times, which are truly the real times, because
their memory will stay with you - not only till the end of the day or
the month, but will stay with you all your life.
It is interesting to wonder just what these "good times" consist of.
I suppose it is pretty hard for any of us to Hgure out just how, or
why, or what was a good time. Any time that makes you feel good,
and you can remember afterwards with happiness is a good time, but
what makes it this way is hard to say. It may be something completely
ridiculous, like the expression on somebody's face that makes you
laugh. It may be a house dance, or the girl across the road, it may be
the high mark in that exam you had worked for. It doesn't really
matter, we mustn't look into the thing too closely, but just realize we
remember the good times, and we forget the bad.
For many of us this past year has been a good one, many lessons
have been learned both academically and otherwise. Many factors
have combined to make this a successful year. The fine relations
between the stat? and boys have created an atmosphere of friendliness.
Then, too, comes the feeling of growth. Never before in the history
of the school have so many improvements been afoot. Ashbury is grow-
THE ASI-IBURIAN 125
ing constantly, and is definitly on the move towards greater heights.
These heights cannot be realized without the help and support of the
enlisted students. After all, students make the school, and it is largely
upon their shoulders that Ashbury has attained the present status, and
will attain the position of even greater importance in the future.
IYhen a boy has completed his education at .-Xshhury, he has not
only got an academic certificate, but has experience in many of the
ways of life. The school motto of Honour, Courage and Grace de-
scribes compactly the kind of person we are proud of, and the kind
of person that Canada is proud of.
lYith the completion of the new building this coming fall, many
aspects of school life will be improved. It will provide lots of extra
recreation space, and undoubtedly some new classrooms will be in-
stituted. The construction will be such as to enhance the beauty of
the school, and it gives just one more example that Ashbury is moving
forward with great spirit, this same spirit that seems to permeate
every activity which the school undertakes. The boys who have been
entrusted with authority, such as room captains, cadet officers, and
prefects, have done an excellent job. To be a good leader, especially
a prefect, is not an easy task, as many of us have discovered.
The prime necessity of being a prefect is to be able to set the
example yourself. I am convinced that if the older boys of the school
conduct themselves in a mature fashion, then automatically the younger
ones will follow. I would like to express my thanks to all those school
officers who during the year have given their continued co-operation
and time, to further the interests of the boys in the school.
On behalf of those who are graduating I would like to thank
sincerely the Headmaster and his staff for all the help and guidance
they have given to us. The wonderful way in which boys and staff
work harmoniously together produces many fine ideas and emphasizes
the fact that Ashbury is performing a wonderful function. develop-
ing young men both mentally, physically and spiritually. But above
all Ashbury teaches the importance of a sound character, for this is
in reality, one of the most important parts of a boy's education.
To those returning next year, have a good holiday and return in
the fall with renewed determination and vigour.
To those who are departing from our midst to take up their various
stations in life, may I give you words familiar to you all, and may they
never be forgotten, The School Prayer: O Lord God, when thou
givest to thy servants to endeavour any great matter, grant us also
to know that it is not the beginning but the continuing of the same
until it be thoroughly finished, which yieldeth the tI'LlC glory. through
Him that for the finishing of thy work laid down His life.
Our Redeemer jesus Christ.

THE coM1NG or SPRING
HE slanting rays of the sun melted the last stubborn bits of hard
snow around the bunker. The two men behind the machine gun
slouched in the hole. One was sunning himself with his head back and
his shirt-front open. The other scanned the black, writhing road
ahead of him. He watched the jeep bounce and whine up the hill. The
driver threw a box of ammunition into their bunker and it clanked to
the fioor. He looked at the box and at his friend, who was taking ad-
vantage of the first sun in a long time. He smiled and turned to watch
the little rivulets trickle down the tire ruts on the hill. Their sound
was nice, he thought.
His friend heard the sounds also. They blended with his thoughts
of home. joan's laughter had mingled with the gurgling mirth of the
brook where they had gone Walking that early spring. The pungent
smell of the awakening earth aroused in him a longing for his home,
The other soldier lit his cold cigar. The sound of running water
also reminded him of home, only the water fiowed in gutters and
through the gratings into sewers. The blued rifle that he polished
was the chrome on his taxi. He nudged his buddy as their replace-
ments slid down into the dug-out.
'gDon't you guys mess up that hole!" he growled around his cigar.
They plodded down the road, the slime weighing down their feet.
"I wish you hadn't woke me up, l was dreamin' about home. I
was walking with my girl, and we had just found a flower when you
went and woke me."
"Yea, me too, only l was home hackin' in the Bronx."
Suddenly the younger soldier saw a glint of colour at the edge of
the road. He reached down and picked the flower. Another was look-
ing at the flower, although through the sights of a rifle. He, too, had
been thinking of home ever since he had been separated from his
company, the day before. He wished he was home. He hated
Americans for keeping him here. He pulled the trigger.
Both soldiers dropped into the mud. One was dead. The other
chewed on his cigar as he spotted the sniper and shot him. He reached
down and picked up the soiled Hower, red as the blood that oozed
from his buddy's head. He looked at his buddv and back at the flower.
Spring was here, he thought. i

I THE coauxo or sifiuxo
HE earth, spinning on its axis, hurtles through space at the terrific
speed of a thousand miles an hour. Its course may be traced out
as an eliptical path around a larger body, the sun. At a definite period
it may be noted that the earth approaches the sun. This slight deviation
from what would be a perfect circle heralds one of the most unusual
and wonderful periods of our lives.
The barren, inhospitable coldness of winter starts to give way and
one begins to think that the world we live in is not such a dreary place
after all. Spring brings forth an awakening in every form of life, no
matter what type, intelligent, plant, or animal. Plant life seemingly
dead springs into life, and trees hitherto almost a symbol of death
become things of beauty.
But the change that is really remarkable is that of animal life.
There is a general awakening of those animals that have slept through
the cold winter. Seemingly by instinct the animals know that spring
has come and they start living again. Birds Hy north by the million,
just as they had gone three months ago, and their song adds to the
wonderful effect we get from the things which I have just described.
As the animal world is affected, so is the human. XIan's thoughts
turn from worldly things and soar to the clouds. This is the season
of love, of poetry, and of beauty. From the most intelligent man
down to the lowliest mouse there is an attraction between the two
The coming of spring always gives us a renewed conhdence in
ourselves, and makes us realize more and more that there must be some
supreme being who will not let us down, because he has given us spring
THE MOST EXCITING MOMENT OF MY LIFE
think the most exciting moment of my life occurred during the
Christmas holidays of my seventeenth year. I was spending the
vacation with my parents in Fort William, hardly expecting anything
exciting to befall me, when I was introduced to the chief test pilot for
the aircraft plant where my father was stationed. IYhen he noted my
avid interest in aircraft, Stan, for that was his name. offered to teach
me to Hy! Can anything more wonderful ever happen to a young boy?
IYhen Imet him at the hangar the next morning, Stan introduced
me to some of his friends, including a dog named Tailskid. After the
introductions were over, Stan took me over to his own plane, and spent
the rest of the morning instructing me in the use of the controls and
instruments and explaining the theory of the aircraft. The great
moment arrived that afternoon when we wheeled the two-seater, Piper
128 THE ASI-IBURIAN
Cub, out into the clear, bright sunshine. After about fifteen minutes
of warm-up and checking drill we fastened our safety belts, Stan
gunned the engine, and we rolled down the runway picking up speed,
until, with a slight jerk we were airborne.
We climbed to 1000 feet, levelled off, and, as we circled the
aerodrome, I was able to look down in wonder at the land spread out
in all directions below me. One moment I could gaze down and see
the sun sparkling on the ice of Lake Superior, the next I was gazing
down on a quilted pattern of snow-sprinkled Fields, roads and forest.
Stan turned around and yelled "You take her now", whereupon I
promptly "froze", and was unable to move, I soon overcame my fear
and gingerly gripped the control stick, guiding the craft along in some-
what erratic Hight for several minutes. VVith Stan as a coach I soon got
the feel of it and was Hying Cor so I thoughtl like a veteran. Finally,
as the sun began to set, Stan took over the controls, and we touched
down gently on the runway. My Hrst Hight was over.
Stan gave me my homework, an armful of books on flying, and
instructions to meet him at the hangar the next morning, and I walked
home, my head still in the clouds and the roar of engines ringing in
my ears, the happiest and most exciting moments of my life.

RADL'AL1.v the train brakes its speed, as it swings around the bend
between the high bare ridge of shield rock and the shining lake
that reflects the glaring headlight and the thundering black minister
that scatters the midnight stillness. As the transcontinental finally.
painfully, groans to a halt, the small station's platform is empty of life
in any form and no sound is heard save the irregular, wearied sighs of
the great iron horse. Behind the lunch counter a sloppy-looking
waitress of about 45, in a greasy apron that was once white, rouses her-
self from a semi-stupor and swears mutteringly. As this is a half hour
stop, in a moment the dingy room will be a scene of mass bedlam, as
the tourists come in for a final cup of coffee before bedtime.
Through the deserted streets on this hot summer night walks a
girl, comfortably dressed in sweater and slacks. She is by no means
beautiful, yet not unpleasant to behold. Her pace is quick, though un-
hurried, as she makes her way towards the station, rubber-soled san-
dals falling noiselessly on the cindered sidewalk adding a ghostly
atmosphere to the silent night.
Arriving on the platform is like stumbling on a circus in your own
back yard. Laughing and talking raucously, humanity darts about,
greatly relieved to be in the open air again. The lunch room is bustling
and the trainman is in the telegraph office to send off a wire to the city,
three hundred miles away in the night. His report complete, he
marches back to his post in the last coach. A bell rings, a voice cries
out above the tumult and the monster begins to swallow up its cargo
again. The dingy waitress aimlessly starts sweeping the floor of the
lunch room and the last block of ice is rammed home in the air-con-
ditioning plant. The mighty animal lets out a roar and the great wheels
grind slowly to pull the fifteen coaches behind away from the plat-
form and on into the dark. Simultaneously the white-coated porters
pick up their wooden stools and shut the doors.
Silently, suddenly, the girl in slacks glides out from a dark corner,
the upper part of a uniformed body appears at an open door. As the
two draw closer, a clenched hand shoots out a crumpled scrap of paper
which falls before a pair of rubber-soled sandals. A door slams. a deft
hand scoops up a ball of paper, and the iron coaches disappear thunder-
ing into nothing, nothing but two remote orbs of light, one red and
A lighted platform is again devoid of life. except for a girl who
carefully reads through a scribbled note. As she walks away. her pace
is quick, yet unhurried, the platform stands brilliant and ghostly, a
scrap of paper lies in the gutter, a smile of satisfaction shines.
130 THE ASI-IBURIAN
NE day, an absent-minded professor walked into Symington Hall
on a Saturday noon and decided to take a junior Table. After
grace had been said, the professor was annoyed to find the milk still
standing at the far end of the table. Now, as every good junior knows,
the milk must be passed to the head of the table immediately following
grace, but this poor professor had to remind these boys to do so. The
meal continued quietly for awhile, then, lo and behold, if one boy did
not have his elbows on the table. The professor snapped: "Get your
elbows off, you've been here long enough to know that it is against
the rules of the school."
It was not till the dessert course that the professor noticed a very
alien looking crest on one of the boys. Again he lashed out: "That is not
an Ashbury crest you're wearing, is it boy?" "No, sir," replied the
little boy, almost in tears, 'Tm from . . ." It was only then that the
professor realized, an embarrassing feeling surging over him, that so
were the nine other boys, - that this was a table made up of a junior
ILLIONS of tourists every year travel all over the world to visit
the different well known hotels and sports-resorts. Today we are
on our way to the famous Carib Hilton Hotel in San juan, Puerto Rico.
As we drive along the scenic highway, we observe many beautiful
sights. The road is lined with palm trees on either side, and also in the
middle. If we look far to the left, we can catch the first glimpse of
the blue Caribbean, on which we will spend much time swimming and
XV e are now approaching the magnihcent grounds which outline
the hotel. As we drive through the gate, we can already smell the fresh-
ness of the sea. To the right, we see the tennis courts with two players
resting after a hard match, the hot sun beating down upon them. Going
on a bit further, we come to one of the huge, oval shaped swimming
pools. On one of the high diving boards a diver is ready to make his
dive. After he leaves the board, he does three somersaults in the air and
ends with a swan. Going on farther still, we come to the beach, on
which are outlined the different coloured parasols, and the swimmers
bobbing up and down on the waves.
Now we are on our way to the hotel itself. As we come closer,
we notice that there are no windows, but balconies with glass doors
in each room. A porter comes to take our luggage, and we go through
THE ASHBURIAN 131
the glass doors to the main hallway of the hotel. On one side the wall
is lined with different kinds of tropic plants. Un the opposite side is
the registration desk.
From the desk a porter leads us up in the elevator, to our rooms. As
I open the door I notice on three walls, different pictures of tropical
islands outlined against the sea. ln one corner of the room is a big
sofa with tables on either side. In the middle of the room, on a table,
stands a small palm tree. Then I walk out onto the balcony. l look out
on the long stretches of the Caribbean, waiting for a new day to bring
A CRICKET GAME
The pitch is ready, rolled and Hat.
As their openers come to bat
Both sides are ready for the fray.
The umpire gives the sign to play.
A team-mate gallops up and howls
The ball, she flies, she hits . . . and rolls.
The batsman gives a vicious smile
And swears heill knock that pill a mile.
The bat comes flying down to clout
But then we laugh ho! ho! he's out.
Now their next man's onward bound
He swears that ball'll ne'er be found.
The ball comes down, he swings his bat,
A catch!! once more we yell "Howzat".
Their next said calmly, "Center Please"
Then took his stance with graceful ease.
VVith a polished stroke he hits the ball,
We watch it sail right over the wall.
The next he gave a stylish chip
Into the hands of second slip.
Later, when the day was done,
The school resounds with "Yay!! lYe won! "
The team was happy as could be
Because we'd gained a victory.
132 THE ASHBURIAN
A LONELY RGAD
lonely road meanders across the rolling plains and around the
base of a glowering hill. In the distance there are more scattered
hills, but this ,one is particular. The natives have two names for it,
one is "Insandula", because some unknown cynic thought it looked like
a bullock's entrails. The other name is Hlsandhlwanan, or 'the little
hand'. The hill is high and sparsely covered with stunted vegetation.
The road is dry and dusty and rutted. But now there is a war on, and
even the traders do not use the road. The burning African sun glares
down on the landscape.
As the sun descends to its home beyond the distant ranges, a
cloud of dust appears on the road in the distance. It draws nearer and
transforms itself before your eyes into a marching army of men wear-
ing red jackets and white sun-helmets. As they approach, you see
that they are British soldiers, and that they have a few artillery pieces
and a long line of supply-wagons in their wake. Mounted scouts ride
nonchalantly to the base of the hill and then come cantering back to
the head of the column to advise the commander to camp there for
the night. He takes their advice and orders the creaking wagons to be
lined up along one side of a large square. The white tents are pitched
and the cavalry mounts are sent out under a dozen guards to graze.
Along the side nearest the road a low earthwork is erected, and the
cannons placed in position. But otherwise no attempts at defenses are
made. The old campaigners grumble that they know how Zulus fight,
but the leader is conhdent, and besides no word has been heard of the
The cooking fires are lit, and the camp assumes a domestic
appearance as the men attend to their cooking, polishing and amuse-
ments. XVith the change of distant pickets comes the word that a few
handfuls of natives have been seen, but that they vanished at the first
shot. And so the night passes peacefully and the dawn begins to break
with its African splendor as the sun peeps goodnaturedly over the
misty peaks in the distance.
Then in an instant, the men were awakened by the urgent chal-
lcnge of the bugle, and their hearts beat faster. For out of the long,
dewy grass below the slope sprang a long line of roaring Zulus. The
soldiers scrambled from the tents and rushed to the edges of the square.
VVith sleep still blinding their eyes they hastily loaded their riHes and
poured a ragged volley in to the approaching formation. Through
the smoke they could see half of the first line of black, howling war-
riors weave and fall to the ground, dropping their white shields and
gleaming spears. By now the whole camp had aroused itself and some
had even donned their uniforms and formed themselves into their
THE ASHBURIAN 155
proper positions on all sides of the camp. A second wave of plumed
demons dashed itself against the encampment. But this time they were
thrown back with heavy losses. The dazed but determined defenders
could see the indunas running up and down before their respective
impis. Through his field glasses, an ofiicer made out on the opposite
slopes, during the lull, crowds of native warriors squatting with their
backs to the fray, but he could not hear their jeering songs done
especially for their angry fellows down the slope across the road.
XYhen the sun had risen beyond the ragged hills, they charged
for the last time. This time they would not vield to the 'hot stones'
that the white men shot at them. Up the slope they poured again and
in spite of the hail of bullets, they came bounding on. They crashed
through on all sides and sent the company of native levies Heeing for
their lives. The whole camp turned into a swaying, fighting mass
of humanity. The short stabbing-spears of the Zulu legions over-
powered the grimly determined, scarlet ranks with their bayonets. The
soldiers were driven back slowly into a vicious circle which cut down
the chanting hordes. But finally, the men of Cetewayo, sons of the
followers of murdered T'Shaka, eddied over the dying bodies of the
brave knot of men. The victors robbed the fallen of their brilliant
coats and rifles, and within an hour the whole army had trotted awav
after dispatching the wounded that could not follow their swift move-
And thus the road was left, sprinkled with human clay, and
spears, and black, sticky patches on the surface of it. Within a week
there would be only a Held of bones. Two days after the massacre,
a British force had buried their glorious dead on the waving slopes
of the hill that stood beside the lonely road. Hoonigx, VIA.

THE FOURTH DIMENSION
'r is the fall of 1972, the evening of an Old Boy's Reunion, and I
am carefully preparing myself for the occasion. I am greatly
excited, for tonight I will meet my old comrades, and, most probably,
my best friend of bygone school-days. I have come miles for this
moment, and it will be one to remember. I stop and think for a
moment, as I carefully straighten my VVoollcombe tie: "Yes, it's nine-
teen years since I graduated-with my list of credits." I smile in anti-
cipation: the old gang. My old friend, he with whom I enjoyed the
best years of my life, he with whom I suffered, he will be there to-
night, and we will sit around and smoke, and reminisce, and laugh and
long for the old days. Nostalgia will pervade our conversation. Yes,
and we'll have plenty of meat for reminiscence, with all the things
THE ASHBURIAN 135
we did together. For six years we'd worked together, played to-
gether, laughed together, complained together, fought togetherf studied
together, we had gone camping and out on dates, we had done a
million things, but always together. We had been rivals, but always
friends. Yes, and to-night . . .
I stride up to the front door, a thousand surprises buzzing
through my mind. The Head Boy greets me, he seems a nice enough
chap. A bunch of penguinistic-looking prefects escort me to Syming-
ton Hall. There are not many in the dining-room yet, mostly fel-
lows who probably attended classes the year before. Then, over by
that corner are a number of men, even older than I. I don't recognize
any of them, so Iejust remain where I am, smoking, feeling uncom-
fortable. Later on I find myself in a stilted conversation with a group
whom I knew only fairly well at school. Everyone seemed to be
talking in platitudes and it bored me to death. Then, with a thrill of
recognition I see my friend step in the door, in the midst of a col-
lection of men who looked like the type who spend the morning in
the office and the afternoon on the links. I rush over to him, and
shake hands: "jack, Jack, I've waited years for this moment.
"I'm sorry, sir, I didn't catch your name."
I got to bed early that night.
I'd like to be a fairy
And live out in the wood,
I'd like to be a fairy
Because they are so good.
And if I were a fairy
I'd not scare anyone,
I'd only fly by night and day
And have a lot of fun.
136 THE ASHBURIAN
CFr0m Public Speaking Competitionb
'xr afraid this speech betrays me as being frightfully presumptuous,
for I feel it is devastatingly similar to a valedictory, and I am sup-
posed to leave that joyous task up to my room-mate. However, I can
only hope that no-one will object too fervently, when the Captain
of the Boarders donates his two cents' worth of homage to the school.
I would like to interpret for you my idea of Ashbury . . . To
me it is not a building, for buildings crumble and decay, it is not a
congregation of people, for people pass and go on, it is not the em-
bodiment of a philosophy, for philosophies change or are modified.
To me it is a spirit, - a warm, vital spirit. At times it may be cruel
- but, in the proverbial manner, it is only to be kind. I believe that
this is Ashbury, and that is why my love for it has remained constant
through six changing years.
It is one of the paradoxes of life that a spiritual something is more
solid, and can stand more strain of faith-bearing than the toughest of
material objects. Thus, when an honest man needs to put faith in
something besides himself, he doesn't Put it in any human form, or
in money, or even in an earthly conviction, no matter how sincere it
may be, for all these are subject to the law of change and the habit of
fickleness. No, he puts it in a spirit - a very God, for although this
is omnipresent and omnipotent, it is also the most stable thing extant.
And I do not think this is too bold an analogy to make.
My faith is not in the friendly, ivy-covered walls, but in the Spirit
Now do not misinterpret my words, I am not discussing that
other elusive thing known as "School Spirit". To my way of think-
ing School Spirit can only be maintained when everyone realizes the
spirit of which I speak, the kinetic force which keeps things rolling,
albeit jerky oftentimes, through the lengthening years.
I spent the last Easter Holidays at school, and, when they drew
to a close, I was amazed to feel the spirit so tangible around me. Here
was the school, - swinging into action, and who was propelling it?
No one, really, it was just a miraculous force. Sure, there were people
who slaved for this result, and they were superiicially responsible, but
actually they were subject to this force, this spirit. And this, to me,
will nlfwnys be Ashbury.
THE ASI-IBURIAN 137

oNoLfRABLE judges and fellow students:
My subject today is not one of immediate international signi-
Hcance, but to a certain number of us here now, it is of a particularly
personal significance. It is - Friendship.
During these last days of the school year, our last school year,
we have experienced a queer, empty feeling which tears at us merci-
lessly. It suddenly struck me about two weeks ago, in the middle of
a class, curiously enough, that here I was walking, talking and living
with fellows whom, in all probability, I will never see again through-
out the whole of my life. Here we are, laughing, for we are gay and
lighthearted, fighting, for we are eager and pugnacious, and living
as one. We vigorously plan how, in future years, we will return and
throw a gala party, a happy reunion, - and yet we know how false
our hopes are, for we will never all meet again. For many of us will
travel to different corners and take up our own way of life and find
new friends, although this seems an impossibly heartless calculation,
now. For we are all human and are drifting helpless in a world that
is not so small as we would think. We will remain in our villa, happy
and contented, and we will forget that there is a some one we once
knew living the same life thousands of miles away - and forgetful,
too. We have been the best of friends, we have shared all our joys
and sorrows, and yet - there are many of us who will never meet
one another again.
Friendship, to me, is the greatest institution in all creation. And
nowhere is it exercised with more intimacy, more loyalty, than in a
school of the sort we are in at this moment. IYhat would school days
be without friendship? It is a terrible thought, that there are those
with no friends. Yet we trifle with friendship so much, we take it
so much for granted in the days of our youth, that we do not recognize
it for its true worth until we are threatened with its takingileave of us.
Then we are plunged into a melancholy that is new, strange and
more frightening than the threat of the atomic bomb. For the atomic
bomb is a weapon devised by mere men, for the purpose of destroying
mortal walls. But friendship is work of the Omnipotent and is beyond
mortal measurement. Friendship can overcome all barriers. friendship
can seep through every seam of society, friendship can find a way into
every human heart, no matter how rocky that way may be. She
cannot be defined, for she is innnite in scope, yet we feel her absence
and suffer for her presence.
Friendship is the most precious possession in all the infinity of
space, for it is a weapon that will destroy completely the only real
evil in the world-hate. CARVER, VIA.

NOW. . . BEFORE
YOU LEAVE SCHOOL
Before you leave school is the time to establish
a banking connection. Whatever business or pro-
fessional career you may have in mind, you will
find that an early association with The Bank of
Nova Scotia will be most helpful in the years
to come. Start with a savings account . . . no
amount is too small . . . and it is ne er too early
to open an account.
