XVEDD 10 THE ASHBURIAN EDITORIAL 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 Ashbury. 12 THE ASHBURIAN SCHOUL NGTES Opening Day 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 years. 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. Entertainwzent 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- ...qw Q Top left: MYCS, we have read some good books lately."

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. Ilieteties Under the directions of Miss Short and her efficient lieutenants of the Domestic Staff, the level of the school meals remained at a satis- factory height. Gifts The School expresses sincerest thanks to: 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 Chapel of a white burse and veil, handsomely embroidered, Mrs. Lillian Sherbpick for a bronze plaque of Her Majesty, Queen lilizabeth ll and THE ASHBURI.-IN 15 the Duke of lsdinburghg Klr. ll. S. Southam for his gift of a line oil painting by Henri Klasson. 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 Coronation ceremonies. 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 bovs. 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. -'--' "" : fl V' +2142 15' 'E 2. : :f 52fi5?:1ff5Lf.11f..1:' .. W, . , .. .. awww 1 ' j:,,.' .

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 much appreciated. XYe have had daily morning prayer in the Chapel, with full Xlatins on Sunday mornings, with evensong on Sunday evenings. Holy Com- munion has been celebrated once a month, with special service of lloly ' ' ti ' 1-5:- :Tl-, -2' l :fi- l l l l i l i THE ASHBURIAN I7 Communion on special occasions. Lessons have been read by the Pre- fects and Senior students at our daily services with the Captain of the School reading them at Sunday Nlatins. The Headmaster has given addresses on September Iith. December 14th, and March 15th. Mr. A. D. Brain gave an address on October 5th, and Nlr. L. H. Sibley spoke on "Some Things lYe Live By" on November 16th. lVe have welcomed the following visitors for celebrations of l loly Communion and addresses: Sept. 28th: Rev. O. Hopkins, of St. Xlatthias Church, Ottawa. Oct. 26th: Rev. R. S. Y. Crossley, ofthe Church of the Ascension, Ottawa. Nov. 23rd: Rev. XY. R. Greatrex, of St. john's Church, Ottawa.

Anderson, Clerical Secretary of the Diocese of Ottawa. lYe are indebted to these clergy for their interest and help through- out the year. On October 19th, Bishop XY. C. White, former Bishop of Honan, China gave an inspiring address. 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. On February 22nd, we held our annual Prefects service. The Captain of the School read the service, L. XY. Abbott read the lesson, G. C. Carne gave the address, L. Hart presided at the organ. prefects took the collection, and the Chaplain gave the benediction. This service was well done, and one of the highlights of the Chapel. This year we attended the Morning Service at St. Alban's Church on March lst. Here Canon C. G. Bruce gave the sermon and the choir was excellent. The Annual Service of Confirmation was held on Nlarch Sth. This service is reported elsewhere in this issue. A special service of Holy Communion for the newly confirmed 18 THE ASI-IBURIAN candidates was held on March 8th at 8.15 a.m. Archdeacon C. Anderson celebrated assisted by the Chaplain. On Nlav 17th, the Ashbury College Cadet Corps attended the Annual Parade service at Christ Church Cathedral, Dean Clark giving the sermon. "Battle of Atlantic" Sunday was held on Alay 25th. At this service in the Chapel, the lrleadmaster read the lesson, with Commander T. G. .Xladgwick giving the Address. Special hymns and prayers were used at this service. The addresses given by the Chaplain this year have been partic- ularly noteworthy for their excellence and fitness for the College, and they have been much appreciated. The Chapel Staff this year who have been responsible for its efiicient operation have been the Chaplain, with Mr. L. H. Sibley as Organist and Choirmaster, Alr. A. I-l. N. Snelgrove and L.

THE .-ISHBURI.-IN 19 THE CHOIR 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. Bark rms: Rev. NY. j.

CONFIRMATION 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 Scriptures, and Archdeacon Anderson acted as the Bishops Chaplain. The following students were confirmed: Michael Vincent Bogert, Ottawa, Ole Kristoffer Book, Sweden, john Nicholas De B. Darwent.

THE ASHBURIAN 21 SCIENCE NOTES 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. zz THE ASHBURIAN 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 :lSHBL'Rl:1.X' s 51 SENIOR SCIFNCF TRIP Bin-lc ro-12: L. H.

Nl..-X., the Headmaster of Selwyn House as a guest. 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 CLUB NQTES 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. ---4-oz-- 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. 4 n , s n I f ' 'V .I i s o f f' 'N I :J ' u ' .wgbf ,,- 1'-M' , ,4 ,Q , , 1, V rg! 4 l x ,ss 'f"w, ' , ff v ,AI h 2.

Une t P ' . .imh x 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 for Lisgar. 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 FOOTBALL Back roar: XY. E. Slattery. Esq.. j. N. Shurly. A. D.

FIRST BISHOPS GAME On a bright October day Ashbury met her old rival Bishops Col- 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 score 17-6. 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 Hart. 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. favour. 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. 34 THE ASI-IBURIAN gm vw SECOND FOOTBALL Back row: Capt. G. VV. Higgs, M. I. Lawson, D. I.

SECOND FIELD RUGBY 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. Final score: Eastview ll, Ashbury 0. ASHBURY vs EASTVIEIY HIGH SCHOOL JUNIORS In the teams second tilt with the Ijastview stalwarts, played on our opponents field, we showed more offensive strength and the tackling improved 100 per cent. E. H. S. again got off to a good start with a touchdown from a short pass over centre which was converted. They THE ASHBUR1.-IN ,s completed a long pass over centre for the second touch of the first quarter. And again, after half-time. the juniors netted their third major 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 found us on their five, but the team was unable to score in the one remaining play. Final score: Eastview 16, Ashbury 6. 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- bury. It seemed to be Ashburys game most of the way, Scott and Ross 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 the series. 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.

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 of Rockcliffe. 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. FOGTBALL DINNER 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. X ' ,9 NW., R 41 ch SOCCER TE.-XXI Back row: .-X. Powell, Esq., YV. H.

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. ai superior in practically every department of play ,, .5 I 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. ' , 1 f"5 FIRST HOCKEY TEAXI 1052-1953 Bark rms: R.

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 goal. 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. THE .-l.SHHL'Rl:I.X' 41 Paced by Irvin.

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. I 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. 46 THE ASHBURIAN SECOND HOCKEY TEAM 1952-1953 Back row: G. Verhaegen, G. R. MacLaren, S. G.

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. SQA Mfg? 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. SKI TLAX1 Back roar: D. E. Hanson, A. Xl. Hardy. D. XY. H. Gamble. R. lf. l-. Gill. Lsq. Front roar: A. D. Livingston, C. L. Gill. D. XY. Scott. F. X. Rhodes lcapti, R. G. Ross. 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 B.C.S. 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. THE .JSHBCRIAX il BASKETBALI. TICAXI Bark r01:: Al. l. l,axi'son. D. A. C.

'N l . - 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 interesting bout. 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 won. 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 consecutive year. U'hen the points were totalled up Cincluding the preliminaries and semi-finalsl the Houses stood in this order: VVoollcombe 61, Connaught 40, Alexander 17. THE ASHBURIAN 55 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 race. 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. Alexander 352. 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: XYoollcombe 26, Connaught 8, and Alexander 1. QGood going! Georgej. The best feature of the day was the large participation this year. There were 113 entrants, which is a good 63 per cent participation. "The Ashburianv extends congratulations to all those who ran. but did not Win. The final House standing was: 1. XYoollcombe 57'i, 2. Con- naught ZSM, 3. Alexander 2056. 56 THE ASHBURIAN CRICKET Captain: T. XV. Grimsdale Vice Captain: L. C. Hart The Mrs. james Wilson Trophies for the Best Averages Batting: L.

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 FIRST CRICKIQT TITAXI 1952-1953 Back ro-zz: G. Yerhaegen. J. D. Knowlton, E.

The Under 16 Xl also enjoyed two hard fought matches with their traditional rivals. and made a very close thing of the return here. which was played on the Government llouse pitch. Its members made a notable contribution to joint practice games with the lst XI, and displayed convincing form in the House Alatches. 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 game. 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 they need. 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 thrower. 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.

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- 62 THE ASHBURIAN together. All honour to our opponents for their refusal to quail before the blows of misfortune. May we have many more such games with them! fvlav 16th: at Lennoxville Ashbury Under 16 XI: Ist innings: 8 B.C.S.

Hart 6 l I7 I Clrimsdale 8 4 6 4 won by 17 runs on lst innings 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. THE .-lSHBL'Rl.4.X' 1,5 THIRD FIELD CRICKET TEAXI 1052-1053 Back row: R. AI. Xl.

Barwick 46: Innes 19 Powell 10 Grimsdale 5 for 12 Singh 5 for 15 lost by 71 runs by j. A. Powell, Esq. 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.

THE PLAY 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. CC D 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 day. 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 72 THE ASHBURIAN warm and genuine interest in this exercise. The following is a list of competitors. Middle-B. Hiney, F. Mulkins, T. Finlay. junior-S. Hamilton, R. Lake. Senior-G. jackson, P. Carver, G. Carne. The names of the winners, with the title of the passage which each elected to read: Senior-G. Carne, '4Ode To The XVest XVind", by P. B. Shelley. Middle-E. Mulkins "Norte d'Arthur", by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. junior-S. Hamilton, "True Story", from Puck of Pookls Hill, by Kipling. .iq-Q- 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 Atomic Bombj. 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.

L T MUSIC PPRECIA'1'1oN may be defined as that force in music education which seeks to arouse in the child a love of music. There are three tvpes of musical projects in any well organized school: listening. performing. and creating. At Ashbury over a period of years we have successfullv carried ULII the Hrst two projects, and we hope the time is not too far distant when the creative activities will materialize. The classes in music appre- ciation, the choir and the Clee Club form an integral part of school life. The Rhythm Band won second place in the Ottawa Nlusic Festival this year. The band gave a spirited performance of English folk tunes at Miss TYoodburn's annual piano recital, held the week before the Coronation. ,-ig-gal SCHOQL DANCE HE Formal, the highlight to Ashburys social season. occurred on April 10th, just after the Easter Holidays. Several hoys returned to the College a couple of days early, in order to prepare and decorate for the great occasion. These hoys are deserving of our gratitude. especially jerry Xueman who worked so tirelessly on the intricate interior decoration. He would also like to thank Dick Kemp for the use of his attractive out-door lights. The Headmaster and Nlrs. R. H. Perry. Graham -Iackson and Xliss Pat Tkoollcombe greeted the guests in the receiving line. The general concensus of opinion voted the dance a success, and it will remain among the happiest of Ashburys memories this year. 74 THE ASI-IBURIAN CQRONATIGN CELEBRATIONS 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 aircraft. 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. , - M ' " ' I 12322:-' our 3 ,xy 'F' ' a - 19 4 ,fl N is 1234? 1f'5a.3f4,E 5' 7 CORONATION ANTICIPATION Killaly, Kennedy, Rhodes I. THE ASHBURIAN , I Lg f. 'v f . sim,-., , ,'1 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. Best Cadet-C!Capt. Richard Kemp. Best Recruit-Cdt. Dave Kennedy.

THE CADET CORPS 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 National Museum. The number of cadets has grown from approximately 30 in 1910 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- THE AsHBU1e1.4zv 77 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 days. 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- ings. There are at present eight former Cadets attending the Service Colleges, and this Corps has always been a good source of supply for Officer Cadets. In the past six or seven years the Corps has won and retained the Col. Sherwood trophy for Ottawa area competition by virtue of three straight wins. The Strathcona Shield twice fwe have since been declared ineligiblej and the Capt. XY. O. Finlay Trophy for the most efficient Cadet Corps, Cin our size grouping? in the Eastern Ontario Area twice. The present Instructional Staff consists of Capt. G. XY. Higgs. C.S. of C., Chief Instructor, Mr. D. L. Polk, C.I., and Officer Candidate E. R. Gill.

ULD BUYS' SECTIQN 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 Honour Rolls.

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. Ambassador Hugh Gibson. His work is concerned with the Inter- governmental Committee for European Migration. His address is 63, rue des Paquis, Geneva, Switzerland. 86 THE ASHBURIAN FABRIZIO ROSSI LONGHI, '40, is following the family tradition, having recently entered the Italian Diplomatic Service. His address is Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Rome, Italy. HENRY GIROUD, '48, tells us that he took over the family business after his father's recent retirement. He married a year ago and is reading Law at the University of Havana in night classes. His address is Apartado 186, Havana, Cuba. FRANK BLISS, '19, has again been elected President of the Hamilton Tiger-Cat Football Club of the Big Four. 4 Hughson Street South Hamilton is his address. JOHN PETTIGRILXY, '47, seems to advance from academic glory to academic glory. He has been awarded the Grainge Student- ship at Cambridge University. This is worth L700 and will continue for two years. Air Commodore XV. R. MACBRIEN, '30 has been recently ap- pointed Chief Staff Officer with the Fourth Allied Tactical Air Force at Landsberg, Germany. The johns Hopkins Press of Baltimore has recently published "The Theatre of Andre Gide - Evolution of a Moral Philosopher" by Dr. j. C. MCLAREN, '42. The graduation class at R.M.C. was reviewed by Lt. Gen. GUY SIMONDS, '21. Among the graduates were Cadet Flight Leader IV. R. SCOTT, '48, who was awarded the Tommy Smart Cup for the best all-round cadet in athletics, and Cadet Flight Leader VV. G. ROSS, '49, who won the Military Staff Course Cup for the cadet most distinguished in track and field, boxing, swimming, and rifle shooting. Another group of Old Boys has been carrying on Ashbury's fine ski tradition at Carleton. Three members of this winter's successful Carleton College Ski Team were XV. R. BRYCF, '51, H. GILL, '52, and J. S. TRAVERS, '48. MARRIAGFS Three Old Boys have recently married: VV. S. DENNY, '48, was married to Miss Nancyann Hutchison of Ottawa on April 6 of this year, H. BROUSE, '50, married Miss Beverley Murray of Ottawa on june 4, and F. P. NEIVCOMBF, '41, was married to Miss Lois XVhillans of Ottawa on june 20. VVe send congratulations and best wishes. OBITUARY XVe were saddened to learn of the deaths during the past year of F. BRONSON, '00, G. E. TURNBULL, '51, and C. VIETS, '38, THE ASHBURIAN 87 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. OLD BOYS' ASSOCIATION-OTTAXYA BRANCH The meeting of the Ottawa Branch of the Old Boys' Association has been postponed until the fall because of the unavoidable absence in Europe of Association President, G.

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 stop here. 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. THE ASHBURIAN 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 On a shipg we hope he doe-sn't sail into too many ports! .-Xlthough lu- 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. Yes, he has a heart of stone! One could never pull the wool over Frenchie's eyesg he is suspicious, sarcastic and cynical - in fact he-'s 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 team. HART-"Let zu' lice off the fat of the land." 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! I L, 1 JY, 4 9 , , I 45 V35 V li Q7-Jr' FORM NOTES FORM VIA 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 THE ASHBURIAN 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- ketball team. 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. i A 94 THE ASHBURIAN 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 in Xledicine. KERR-lYilkie has been with us for two years, but is leaving next LIY 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 go, Wilkinson! have broken a record for endurance the fall, on the very opening day of live through the whole school year realms. VVhat'S been a very good football and was Games. Also he spring he reached INGSTON-Livers seems to this year. He came to us in School, and he managed to without succumbing to the more, he's coming back next thing for Ashbury as Dave urge to seek other year. And this has strove valiantly in the bane of lYoollcombe House in the House played a major role on the ski team and in the the semi-finals in the tennis tournament. Undoubtedly he really 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 off to Sir George Williams and we wish him the best of luck all the way! 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- fiant nut or bolt. He also Czoommmlj spends much time discus- sing the pros and cons of the latest aeronautical achievements with Eric. Even though he doesn't care for much else. he does manage to keep up in his schoolwork and never fails fat least. not too muchl. Among other feats he has been a faithful room captain and took part in the Soccer. Skiing and Track departments. One of the mysteries of Phil's existence is what goes on in his room during prep. You may put your ear to the door - but you'd never fathom these weird cackles. We think he tells himself jokes. Oh. well, somebody has to be different. 96 THE ASHBUIUAN FORM VIC BEAVFRS-The five foot noisy boy of VIC hails from Morrisburg. All of us, at one time or another, have been the object of his verbal assault, and constantly have to find means of answering his chal- lenge. Pat played on the Second Team Football, Hockey and Cricket, and was Captain of the latter sport. BILNCOMO-He is a member of the Spanish Contingent from down South. He played Soccer with gusto, and was the "star" of the Boxing Finals. It would appear that he is going to be a Boxing Promoter and Manager in a few years. KAHLE-Our new German scholar hails from a coffee plantation in Mexico. He is picking up the language well, and hopes to be back in the Fall. KENNEDY-David is our Vancouver representative. A hard working student, Dave can often be seen in Room C studying eagerly. He played with success on the First Cricket Xl, the 2nd Football and 2nd Hockey Teams. He distinguished himself in the School Play as the lover of the piece, and has had the honour of being voted the most handsome boy at Ashbury, by a group of girls at a neighbour- ing school. He has also acted as Form Secretary, and is off this summer to the Coronation, after a Hne first year at a new school. KILLALY-"Mac" is also completing his Hrst year here and hails from Sedbergh. He is marked by his good manners a desire to learn, and an ever ready supply of good nature. He played lst Hockey with some success, was a member of the Under 16 Cricket Xl and played Rugby on the lst Team. He has also been both a boarder and a day boy this year, and has a great liking for the Bell Telephone system. ' l THE ASHBURIAX SHT KLIQINHANS-Dick is one of the L'.S.A. representatives here, and is constantly full of tall stories. A lover of mechanical toys, he expects soon to do his tour of duty with the L'.S. Navy. l le played Soccer. Basketball and Tennis during the year. i i LAXYSON I-alike has been with us for 4 years and this year he has been absent for a large pzlft of it. He played on the 2nd Football Team, and the Basketball Team. l lis pet aversion is Spelling. This year he finally obtained his smoking permission. MARXIQL-Victor hails from Caracas. He shines on the Soccer Team, this year receiving his colours. His chief claim to fame is his in- fluence in the Butt Room. Quiet and courteous, he is making a study of convents this year. MCINNIQS-"Stew" hails from the herring-choker city of Halifax. .-X popular member of the Form he is the School Tennis star. He also played on the Znd Football, and lst Hockey Teams.

RHODES I-An Xl.L.T.S. man, Neddy is off to the Coronation after a good academic year. He was Captain of the Ski Team. and a member of the lst Football and lst Cricket Teams. His favourite pastime is talking. SHORT-The "Shortibus" of the College, he was a member of the Soccer and Ind Hockey teams. Always courteous. he can always be found working like a beaver at his studies. Well liked by all. he is one of XYalker's automotive enthusiasts. and hopes to be back again next year. SPENCER-"Long john" with his Haming red hair can usually be found streaking across the campus adapting himself to nature. He played on the Znd Rugby Team, dabbled in skiing, and acted as wicket keeper on the Under 16 Cricket XI with some success. He tells us that he will DOI be returning, and we wish him good fortune. TURCOTTE-"Turkey" who is in VlC's import from Shell. played a major part in the Ind Team's Football success last fall, played Bas- ketball in the winter, and dabbled at Track and Field this spring. Elmwood seems to hold some fascination for him, and he has established himself as one of Klr. Powells favourite Xlaths students. He also received his Nl.L.T.S. standing for the year. which is certainly worthy of commendation. VERHAEGEN-Our Belgian representative, after hibernating at Sel- wyn House, George is our diminutive package of academic excel- Q8 THE ASHBURIAN lence, with time out on Fridays to catch his breath. He is our scorer of the lst Cricket Xl, and has been a competent manager of the 2nd and 3rd Field Hockey Team.

He seems to have a Hair for Elmwood and Springfield road at the present, and the rest of his spare time he studies. ZAFFATY-Zaff hails from hot Venezuela, and was appointed Form Monitor this year. He has played at Soccer and Skiing, and seems to be making some progress with the new language. Gff south, for the summer, he hopes to return next year. FGRM REMOVE BAER-our Montreal gangster.

Here the Headmaster reviewed the activities of the past year in work and sports and spirit throughout. He began by paying a warm tribute to the work of the Staff, and by expressing his regret that we were to lose the services of three of its members: Nlr. T. XY. Lawson. Xlr. bl. XY. llastie and Xlr. lf. XY. T. Gill. Mr. Lawson was leaving us for Cambridge, where he intends to do two years of postgraduate work. while both Nlr. llastie and Nlr. Gill have joined the Air Force. He thanked them for their loyal services and said he hoped they would not forget us but would pay us a visit whenever opportunity presented itself. He then proceeded to review the events of the Chapel - the 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.

SPGRTS DAY 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 CLGSING CEREMQNIES 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 pages. 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.

Iacleson, Head Boy Mr. Chairman, Xlr. Headmaster, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen: 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. 126 THE ASHBURIAN LITERARY SECTIGN 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, and girl. 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 Haxsox, VI-A THE ASHBURIAN 127 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 sexes. 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 once more. SPENCER VIC 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. HORE V Ia THE SEASONS lYhen all things start budding, And pretty flowers spring up, IVhen birds start their singing, And the lake 's like a lovely cup, Then it's spring! VVhen the beaver builds his dam, In the bright and bubbling creek, IVhen the thrush sings his song, Opening his little beak, Then it's summer! VVhen all the leaves turn yellow, Or red and orange and brown, VV hen jack Frost comes visiting And sends nuts tumbling down, Then it's autumn! lVhen the flowers are safely covered Under a blanket of snow, VVhen the boys start playing hockey And down the hill the skiers go, Then it's winter! BEANII-INT 8: MORSON, II. THE ASI-IBURIAN 120 CANADIAN INCIDENT 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 one green. 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. CARVER, VIA. 130 THE ASI-IBURIAN GUESS WHO CLXN ANECDOTEJ 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 visiting Team. THE HGTEL 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 sailing. 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 more visitors. ILSCH.-XL'ZlICR-RCIHUYC 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. Easerwoon-Reniove 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 elusive foe. 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- ments. 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.

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 1" 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. CARNE, VIA.

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 of Ashbury. 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. CARNE, VIA. THE ASI-IBURIAN 137 FRIENDSHIP flfrouz Public Spcalcing f.'0lllf7L'lfIi0llI 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.
