THE ASHBURIAN 9
IR Philip Sidney said that if we are to write well, we must first look
into our hearts. Xlr. llemingway says that if we are to write truly,
we must write as though we were talking to ourselves. These appear
to be excellent precepts-even though the things that Nlr. llemingway
finds to say to himself are sometimes astonishing.
ln looking into our hearts in search of material to say to ourselves
in this editorial, we find there two cardinal emotions-humble grati-
tude for the escapes of this year, and hopeful ambitions for the accom-
plishments of next year and of the years to come.
XYhat new policies are framed for next year at Ashbury? lYhat
are the ultimate objectives of Canadian schools?
The first question was answered by the Headmaster at the Closing
Exercises, the second was discussed, as broadly and as shrewdlv as time
permitted, by the same authority on the same occasion, also by Xlr.
Blair Fraser at the Old Boys' Dinner, also, and at length, on divers
occasions by divers spokesmen of the Department of Education. Let
us hope, then, that in discussing them here we are not uselessly thrash-
ing a horse that has already been soundly bludgeoned by experts.
In this hope, let us talk to ourselves first of what we are 7IOl' trying
to do. We are not trying to put any gray heads on green shoulders, we
are not trying to develop a race of intellectual snobs, to persecute the
mediocre, to encourage exclusively either long hair or CFCXV-CUIS. But
neither are we trying to strew a primrose path to a university which
is looked on by the aspirant merely as a super tradeschool.
Secondly, what we are trying to do is to pave a highroad on which
those who have the capacity for, and interest in, things of the mind
will find the fewest pot-holes and detours, and along which they may
travel swiftly to the fruits of their interest and the fulfilment of their
capacity. CHere, surely, the Independent Schools, by virtue of smaller
classes, have the better opportunity, and therefore the profounder res-
ponsibilityj. As the fabric of our buildings is not elastic, it seems evident
that those who have neither interest nor capacity should be called
upon to make way for those who have both.
Along what lines, then, should this development of the interested
few be chiefiy directed? It seems to us that Mr. Blair Fraser fwhose
speech was reported in the local pressj has a wise answer-back to the
Rising generations should not, of course, be directed to bury their
heads in the past, but neither should they be permitted to ignore it,
nor encouraged to deride it, for without your toes planted firmly and
consciously in the past, how can you hope to fasten your teeth in the
future-or even the present.
"And so ends our catechism".
10 THE ASI-IBURIAN
HE School opened on the bright sunny morning of September Sth,
with the happy memories of the summer, and the long looked-
forward-to reunions. The enrolment again set a new record with well
over two hundred students. Mr. Perry, in his annual opening day speech,
welcomed the new boys and said that we have now reached our capacity
as far as enrolment goes.
As has become the custom, the following day we were honoured
by the presence of the Chairman of the Board of Governors, Mr.
R. VV. Southam, who spoke briefly to us, and then very kindly asked
the Headmaster to grant us a half holiday.
Changer of Stay?
At the beginning of the year Mr. H. S. Dalton, whose wife is a
junior member of the School Teaching Staff, came to the school to
Hll the position left by Mr. Devine on the Middle School Staff. After
the Christmas holidays we were joined by Mr. XY. Gibson, formerly at
"The Groven, Lakeheld, who became a coach of the second team
hockey and a master in the junior School. Then, in February, Mr.
C. T. Ruddick, a graduate of Haverford College, in Pennsylvania,
came to us to help fill the great vacancy in school affairs left by
Xlr. Brain, who has temporarily left us for the duties of Head of the
Classics Department at Haverford College, Philadelphia.
The Hallowe'en party for the juniors was a big success, with
many different types showing up, including underwater divers, cow-
boys, Indians, and the like. The grounds were well guarded by a
group of senior boarders against any neighbourhood mischief-makers.
One of these, a fourteen-year-old girl, was caught by a flying tackle.
This episode contributed much to the merriment of the Senior School
the next day, and to the embarassment of the tackler and the girl.
On the day before the Christmas Holidays began, we were treated
to a delicious turkey dinner, with all the trimmings. After dinner, as
usual, we held the Christmas party. Separating the Seniors from the
.luniors proved to be a successful innovation, and "a good time was
had by all". There was carol singing, Santa Claus, and a magician.
A line movie show rounded out the entertainment for the evening.
XX'e would like at this point to give a special note of thanks to
Mr. Sibley and liirheek. for the generous sacrifice of their Saturday
evenings to show movies. The movies along with the television have
provided excellent entertainment in the school throughtout the Vear.
There were several good features shown this year, such as "Gentlemen
Prefer Blondes". "Little Boy Lost", "Mr, 'Scoutmaster".
THE ASHBURIAN ll
There were three house dances this year, two in the fall term
and one in the winter. They were all good dances, especially the first
one, at which there was one of the largest attendances ever seen at a
house dance. Thanks are due to Clarke and Patrick, who decorated
Rhodes Hall, and set up and worked the record player and loud-
We were fortunate this year in having Nlr. sl. Xl. Humphries
come and give another of his illustrated lectures on various parts of
Canada. This time, on Feb. 27th, he gave us a very interesting travalogue
on the Maritimes.
On May 20th, the whole school listened to a piano recital by Paul
de Nlarkey, the noted Canadian pianist and composer. The music, a
selection of classical and semi-classical pieces, was piano playing at its
The general health of the School has again been excellent through-
out the year. Thanks to the ministrations of Dr. C. K. Rowan-Legg,
Miss Bray and Mrs. Clarke we suffered from no illnesses which ap-
proached the proportions of an epidemic.
The School gratefully acknowleges the following gifts and wishes
to thank the donors: A XYater-Colour, R. XY. Southam, Silk Screen
Reproductions, E. N. Rhodes, Tom Thomson Print, Kelvin Sproule,
Travelling Clock and Binoculars, H. Cooney, A set of books,
R. VV. Southam, A set of Books on English Literature, Gordon and
XVilliam Winter, Sanctuary Lamp, Lt. Commander and Nlrs. B. C.
Hamilton, Credence Table, The Mothers Guild.
We were exceedingly sorry to hear the Headmaster's announcement
at the june Readover, that we were to lose the services of Xlrs. Clarke
and of Mr. Falstrup-Fischer. The former is off to England and the
latter is going to teach school in Sunny California. We shall miss
them both very much, but we wish them the best of luck.
In accordance with the Headmasters policy of making an addition
to the plant whenever it is financially
feasible and where the addition is most
needed, we have a new wing for lockers
and changing rooms. It will be most
welcome and will relieve the congestion
on D deck.
12 THE ASI-IBURIAN
URING the year the regular weekday and Sunday services have
been carried on as usual. In addition there have been two "Cor-
porate School Communion Services," one on All Saints' Day and the
other on Ascension Day.
A number of distinguished visitors whose sermons have given us
much food for thought includes the following: FXL The Rev. D. G.
Madill, Chaplain of the Rockcliffe Air Station, The Rev. Roland
Bodger, Rector of St. Cuthbert's Church, Montreal, The Venerable
Archdeacon C. G. Hepburn, formerly Rector of All Saints Church,
Ottawa, and The Venerable Archdeacon C. Anderson, Clerical
Secretary of the Diocese of Qttawa. Also we have derived much profit
from sermons by Mr. A. D. Brain, Mr. L. H. Sibley and the Headmaster.
On Tuesday, March 13th., the Lord Bishop of the Diocese, the
Rt. Rev. E. S. Reed, M.A., D.D. confirmed the following candidates
in the Chapel: john Budden, Ian Cameron, Ian Carr-Harris, Rudolph
Dankwort, VVilliam Eakin, john Elmslie, Victor Fascio, Richard Fidler,
George Hazell, Garnet Hazell, Michael Heenan, Richard Hutcheon,
john Lake, Malcolm Lindsay, Malcolm McDonell, Gilbert Molloy,
Christopher Murphy, Frank Pretula, Danny Pretula, Eric Rice, john
Sarkis and Guy Thorne. Two others, Colin Cantlie and David Gauthier
who were ill at the time of the Bishopls visit were conhrmed a few
weeks later in St. Columba's Church, Manor Park.
Towards the end of the VVinter Term the Prefects held their
annual Service. The Office of Morning Prayer was read by the Head
Boy, L. Nl. Killaly, the Lesson by M. lViddrington and the Sermon
was delivered by Terry Finlay. XV H. Birbeck played the organ. All
of these young men are to be highly commended for the effective
way in which each of them carried out his function.
Our Chapel has been enhanced by the provision of two new
furnishings. One, a Sanctuary Lamp, the gift of Lt. Cdr. B. C. and
Xlrs. llamilton, and the other a Credence Cupboard of pleasing design
made by Nlr. Chris. Herbert. This serves as a Credence Table and a
rtorage place for the Sacred Vessels and small Altar Linens. The Sanc-
ruarf. lamp was dedicated at the Old Boys' Service in the Fall Term
and the flredence Cupboard by the Bishop at the time of the Confir-
'lhe Chapel services can only be carried on with the help of
those who perform necessary functions, some of them behind the
scenes. XYe would like to thank our Urganist and Choirmaster, Mr.
Sibley and Ins able assistant, Nlr. Snelgrove, the choir, the chapel clerks,
THE ASHBURIAN 13
T. li. Finlay, XY. H. Birbeck and Michael Berridge, the Server, Gordon
VVebster and the Crucifer, Peter Noel-Bentley. And finally we feel
bound to say a very special word of thanks to this year's prefects whose
reading of the daily Lessons has been quite outstanding..
THE MCDTI-lER'S GUILD
L'RINu this year the Nlothers' Guild again fulfilled a very useful
function in the school. We would like to thank this organization
for the time and energy spent on our behalf.
The work of the Mothers' Guild consists mainly of organizing
various projects, the money from which is given to the school in the
form of gifts, prizes, or cash. This year the Guild held the animal
clothing sale, a tea and home-cooking sale. They also served lunch
at the Old Boys' Reunion. Their donations included a credence cup-
board for the chapel, cups for the Swimming Meet, prizes for the best
dormitories, money to pay for band instruments, and four hundred
dollars to go towards bursaries. Once again, our sincerest thanks for
N appreciation of great music is usually not acquired without some
effort. The most a teacher can do is create the proper atmosphere.
and lead the students to sense the spirit and beauty of music. It is
our desire in the music classes of the junior School at Ashbury College
to provide a standard by which the students may evaluate the good, or
better, and the best in good music and develop a love for it. The Rhythm
Band, recorders, and a systematic course of listening are extended
throughout the year.

THE ASHBURIAN If
CII-INCIC tours and trips this year perhaps have been more interesting
On january l-lth we made our usual trip to the Gatineau Power
Company, where once more the horizontal generators were very fas-
cinating to watch in action, and we gained much from our visit.
The next tour took us to the Gatineau Commercial Alcohols
Limited, where we saw the production of lfthyl Alcohol from Sulphite
Haste Liquor. Une of the more interesting features here was the
Automation, which has been gaining so much prominence in recent
years. The process entails the addition of lime to the waste Sulphite
Liquor, and then by the normal fermentation process, alcohol is obtained
through a succession of distillations. Nothing is wasted here. The steam
in the process is used until all the heat is extracted, and the waste
carbon dioxide is taken over to the Magnesia Plant the building of
which was a direct outcome to use up this gas. ln the Nlagnesia Plant,
we saw the manufacture of all kinds of insulation materials.
At the same time that this tour was in progress, a group of Kliddle
School boys travelled to the MacLaren Pulp and Paper Company and
saw the manufacture of newsprint. The long paper machines proved
to be of great interest. This tour was supervised by Mr. Snelgrove.
On February 13th, a group of Upper School students travelled
to the Montreal Road Plant of the National Research Council. The
Chemistry Building was first on the Tour, where we saw some appli-
cations of radioactive elements, a pilot plant for extracting oil from
Alberta sands, and a method for drying grain in storage, to name a
few. From here, we moved to the Aeronautical building to see the
supersonic wind tunnel and the spinning tunnel, then on to Building
Research to observe tests on stresses and strains on prefabricated houses.
From here we travelled to the Radio and Electrical Engineering Divi-
sion to see the new Underwater Television Camera which has been
developed here. XVe found that the earliest underwater Television sy-
stem on record was given experimental trials at the Bikini atomic site
in 1947. It was also used in connection with the loss of the British
submarine "Affray", four years later. The newest one developed by
N.R.C. has been used to study the animal and plant life in the sea,
and in salvage operations. We also saw in action a giant lightning
generator. Finally we were intrigued with one group of scientists who
were attempting to get rid of the screech from airplane jet engines.
Saturday, Feb. 28th, saw a few Sixth Form boys on tour of
Computing Devices of Canada. We went first to the XYestboro property
of the firm, and were fascinated by the great computer used for in-
16 THE ASHBURIAN
dustrial work. This fantastic instrument typed us a welcome, and is
able to solve all kinds of complex mathematical problems. VV e also saw
some of the products- which can be made with the new Transistors-
tiny radios, and small television sets. Then we moved to the Bell's
Corners Plant, and saw the manufacturing facilities and offices. Here
the new PHI is manufactured which is a new revolutionary air navi-
gation system which fits into a suitcase, which was explained in great
detail. Refreshments were served, and this most absorbing tour came
to a reluctant close.
A group of Senior students also attended the Annual Student
night of the Chemical Institute of Canada, where the speaker was the
President of the Research Council, Dr. XV. R. Steacie, M.Sc., Ph.D.
He discussed the topic: "Careers in Chemistry" and was most emphatic
in telling all who considered any branch of Chemistry as a Career,
that they should make up their own minds, as never before in the
history of Canada, have there been such great opportunities. XVe also
saw a film, courtesy of the Monsanto CCanadaQ Limited, entitled "De-
cision for Chemistry" which gave case histories, showing problem solu-
tions, and results of chemical research.
On April 16th, a group of Senior Science students were invited
to the Sussex Street National Research Council on an interesting ex-
periment through the courtesy of Dr. Keith MacDonald, Director of
Cold Temperature Research of the Council. The boys followed Phy-
sics and Chemical Research all the morning under the tutelage of Dr.
MacDonald, then had lunch with a group of the Research Staff, and
then went on in the afternoon to see work done on the Mass Spectro-
graph, the liquid nitrogen plant, and were able to experiment them-
selves with liquid nitrogen. This was by far the highlight of the year,
and one which will be remembered long after the year is over by
those who attended. The humour, inspiration, and cooperation of Dr.
MacDonald will always be remembered, as well as his brilliance and
This year as usual, the trips and tours have been in the hands
of Nlr. Sibley and Mr. Snelgrove, ably assisted by the Science students
of the Upper Sixth Form.
SENIOR SCIENCE TRIP TO MONTREAL
me Senior Science Trip this vear was to Montreal. Leaving School
on XX ednesday afternoon, Nlarch the 17th, we arrived late that
evening and pllf up at the HY".
After a quite pleasant breakfast in the "Vs" cafeteria next morning,
we set about the business of the day. The hrst plant on the list, Shell
THE .-ISHBURI.-IA I7
Uil's Refinery, was, unfortunately, so completely snowed in bv
Montreals heaviest snow in years that it was impossible to tour it. i
llowever, in the afternoon we succeeded in getting to the works of
the Dominion Rubber Company. llere we saw Lthe niaking of a wide-
range of rubber products from the crude material. The rubber is being
treated chemically and rolled to give it the desired properties. and then
its fabrication to the final shape was witnessed in great detail. Among

Cyclotron, McGill University, with Dr. Thompson.
the many things being made at the time were large conveyor belts,
rubber gasketing for machinery, rubber tank linings for chemical
plants, hoses for vacuum cleaners, garden hoses, and hoses for loading
Thursday evening was free.
Friday morning saw us bright and early at the Northern Electric
Company's plant, for a look at the insides of the telephone. XYe were
conducted around the huge building, saw the manufacture of telephones.
switchboard equipment and micro-wave relay gear. This plant uses
a minimum of subcontracted material, so we saw not merely an assembly
line, but the making of the components to feed the line from the raw
stock. The huge plastic molding machines, which make the shells for
the 'phones, was one of the most interesting sights. Among other things
seen was the new "cross-bar" exchange equipment. which is to make
inter-city dialing a reality soon. We saw at the company a film of the
running of the "Miracle Mile" of the BLQG. as it appeared at the
East End of N.E.'s television relay network. The Company also
treated us to a free lunch in their mammoth modern cafeteria.
18 THE ASI-IBURIAN
ln the afternoon, we went out to the buildings of Ayerst, McKenna
8: Harrison, makers of drugs and medicines of various sorts. This
was one of the most different and interesting points of the trip. The
manufacture of pills, capsules and ampoules for hypodermics, with
all the antiseptic precautions needed, is a most fascinating process.
lYe were conducted about the grounds through several buildings and
saw quality control and research labs, as well as the animal colonies
used to check the products. An interesting sideline was the sight of
the effects of inbreeding among mice. Vile saw also some work being
done on cancer research, again on mice. After the tours, we were given
refreshments and were told a little of the company's history. It was
founded in Canada in the '20's, is the largest such company in Canada,
and it has now expanded into the States. It was a most pleasant after-
noon, and we were sent home with samples of the firm's products.
Friday evening was again free.
Saturday morning brought us to the gates of McGill and the
Electronics Research laboratory. There we saw the cyclotron used
in study of atomic structure, and we were told of its workings. Then
we moved on to the new Science Building, whose director is our old
friend, Dr. Hatcher. He guided us about the departments, metallurgical,
geological and so forth, where We got a chance to see several research
projects in progress.
For lunch we adjourned to the La Salle Hotel, and were fed most
royally by Mr. Fascio. lt was a memorable meal, indeed.
The Cote de Liesse Works of Canadian Aviation Electronics was
the afternoon's and the final tour.
ln this modern establishment, we saw the Assembly of aircraft
flight simulators and the repair of aircraft Hre-control systems. For
security reasons, we could not see these in too great detail, but some
realization of the complexity and cost of electronic warfare was gained.
Quite interesting are some of the devices for which this company is
an agency. These include machines for finding the moisture content
of grain, long life batteries, search and rescue systems for finding
downed airmen, and many others. It must be noted that this Canadian
company, founded after the Har, is now a nation-wide concern.
Saturday evening, we dispersed, free for the weekend, IHOSI coming
back to School with Mr. Sibley, or staying over.
.Xluch thanks is due to Xlr. Sibley for arranging the trip, to the
Colonial Coach for their help, and to all the many very kind people
who helped us to see their respective concerns.'Those making the
trip this year included Calkoen, Drew, lischauzier, Grant l., Mac-
Laren, Patrick, Yan Schelle, Rockingham, Birbeck and Hard.
THE ASHBURIAN 10
GAIN this Easter, a holiday trip to Bermuda was undertaken by
Xlr. jobling. Five boys, namely, Mac Killaly, Greg Grant, Richard
Grogan, joe Irvin, and Edward Klulkins accompanied Klr. jobling to
the tropical island, where they camped out on Port's Island, about
half a mile off shore in Hamilton Harbour.
One of the highlights of the trip was a day's excursion to the
town of St. George, which was built in 1652. There are many historical
relics, including the great St. Peter's Church. They also' saw Jack
Kramer's famous tennis show, including such names as Tony Trabert
and Pancho Gonzales. i
The boys were blessed with very good weather, and thoroughly
enjoyed the bathing, boating, and fishing. There was much going on
in Bermuda when they were there, as it was "College Week". Nluch
credit is due to Mr. jobling for making the trip such a great success.
PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST
HIS event was held in Rhodes Hall on April 29th and again
brought out a fair number of speakers.
The judges, Mr. Belcher and Mr. Polk expressed the opinion that
the calibre of several of the speeches was better than ever. Last years
Ashburian commended the conviction and spontaneity of many of the
performances, and these qualities were even more conspicuous in this
Among those who were not fortunate enough to win in their class,
Finlay deserves special mention for the skill and forcefulness of his
speech on "Racial Discrimination".
The winners were: Seniors: Clarke, Intermediates: Tucci, juniors:
POETRY READING CONTEST
HE Poetry Reading Contest, held in the Chapel on Sunday, May
6th was again highly satisfactory. Fifteen candidates competed,
and Professor XVood, of Carleton College, was kind enough to act as
adjudicator. IaVhile expressing himself as quite pleased with a number
of the readings he did remark on a general tendency to overemphasize
the pause at the line endings, often at the expense of the grammatical
phrasing and, hence, of the meaning. He suggested also that some of
20 THE ASHBURIAN
the readers might have been more successful in conveying the "tone"
of the verse. However, he added that many of the readings were
highly creditable performances.
The winners were: Seniors: Hamilton II, Intermediates: Tucci,
On March 9th, early in the morning, Clarke and Tucci, with
Mr. Spencer, set out for Bishop's College School for the inter-school
debate against L.C.C. The team arrived at B.C.S. in the evening. There
in the Peter Holt Memorial Library the debate took place. The L.C.C.
team was composed of Ronnie Raginsky and Axel Harvey. The chair-
man was Bell of the B.C.S. Debating Society.
The subject was "Resolved that Canada should have a written
Bill of Rights". Ashbury upheld the negative. Our main points were
that Canadians would notice no difference if we had it, the mechanical
difficulties involved in passing such an amendment, and that it would
not positively guarantee protection of rights. The Affirmative argued
that our rights as Canadians were encroached upon by the provinces.
The scoring was Clarke: 76, Tucci: 75, and 75 and 74 for
the two L.C.C. debators. This made the score 151 for Ashbury, and 149
This is the second consecutive year that Ashbury has won. Last
year Finlay and Clarke beat B.C.S. at L.C.C. Much of the credit must
go to Klr. Spencer, who helped and guided the team to victory.
His year a new series was introduced to the Seniors. It was a series
of lectures on lYednesday afternoons by men, all distinguished
in their own field. Each one gave us some idea of the needs, the
advantages and disadvantages of his particular career, and gave us
better views in the difference kinds of jobs that may be available.

THE ASHBURI.-IN 21
ou some years past it has been the custom of the lfnglish Committee
of the Canadian Headmasters' Association of Independent Schools
to convene annually. The purpose of the convention is to provide an
opportunity for the teachers of English at the Schools to get together,
to exchange views, to hear addresses by distinguished educationalists,
and to discuss what thev have heard.
Recently it was voted as the policy that these meetings should be
held, on a rota basis, at such schools as were situated at geographically
convenient points. This year it fell to the happy lot of Ashbury to
play host on Easter Monday, April Ind.
The committee was well represented by Appleby, Hilllield. Lake-
field, Lower Canada, St. Andrews and Ridley-some of them by several
members. Dr. Carter B. Storr, Principal of Broadview Avenue High
School, Ottawa, led the morning discussion. His thesis was the coordina-
tion of the teaching of subjects-social, historical, aesthetic, scientific.
and a closer integration of values.
After lunch the meeting was resumed-this time under the leader-
ship of Dr. A. B. KlcLeish, formerly of the University of British

Columbia, presently of Carleton College, Ottawa. Dr. McLeish spoke
on "The Canadian Schoolboy versus the English Languagew. He felt
that modern education placed insufficient emphasis on the value of
richness of imagery, colour, sound articulation, in the writing and
reading of the English language. Nevertheless, he left us with the con-
fident conviction that, in this one-sided conflict, both contestants were
still in the ring.
After the day's conference, the Headmaster and Mrs. Perry served
refreshments at Ashbury House, and later, dinner was served in the
Ashbury enjoyed having these guests and hopes to have the
opportunity of doing so again.
E would like at this point to pay a tribute to Mr. A. D.
Brain, who temporarily left Ashbury in February to be Acting
Head of the Classics Department at Haverford University for five
months. Mr. Brain, as the Headmaster has so aptly stated, is one of the
"pillars of the School". For a period of 21 years Mr. Brain has given his
energy, his intelligence, and his devotion to Ashbury, and over this
period has become an integral part of the School.
THE GUARD OF HONOUR
CADET CORPS INSPECTION
Between days of wind and rain, on Xlay 15th. in glorious sunshine,
the Ashbury College Cadet Corps demonstrated before a record crowd
of admiring parents and friends the exercises and military skills which
had been learned with interest and determination throughout the
IVith precise timing and under careful control. the Corps was
formed up by the Cadet Company Sergeant Nlaior XY. H. Birbeck. and
marched onto the parade ground on the first playing field by the Cadet

As the Inspecting Party, including Lt. Col. T. G. Bowie and Capt.
F. Evans, the Area Cadet Officer, approached the parade ground, the
Flag was marched on the field. Admiral Grant took up his position on
the reviewing stand, and the Corps gave a General Salute. After the
Inspection there followed the Marches Past, and the Advance in Review
Order, another salute, and the Flag was marched off.
IV hen the Senior Corps moved off the field, the junior Corps gave
exhibitions of drill and P.T.
The next event was to many onlookers the most spectacular and
thrilling. A Field Demonstration in the form of a Mock Battle was
staged on the Rockcliffe Common, wherein attacking and defending
sections of ridemen and Bren gunners played out a realistic exposition
of what they knew about the Rifle, the Bren gun, Signals, First Aid,
and Fieldcraft, and a prepared position was successfully taken, despite
the added hazard of Fire-crackers simulating the explosions of hand
grenades. Blank ammunition was also used, and all radio messages were
relayed over loudspeakers, for the benefit of the audience. The
attackers were led hy Cadet Lieutenant j. R. M. Rockingham, and the
defenders were in the charge of Cadet IYarrant Officer IV. H. Birbeck.

Cadet Major Finlay was Chairman of the Planning Committee, and
Cadet Staff Sergeant L. P. VVard was responsible for all Signals
On its return to the Ashbury Grounds, the Inspecting Party saw
a co-ordinated and enthusiastic display by the gymnastic team, under
the leadership of Mr. R. j. Anderson, followed by an exceptional
performance by the Guard of Honour, in their scarlet tunics, flashing
buttons, and hirsute bearskins, completing a series of intricate drill
movements, most of them without command.
When the Corps was re-formed, in a hollow square, it heard an
address by the Reviewing Officer which was both amusing and warmly
congratulatory, before he presented the awards.
Lieut. J. M. Rees, R.C.N.R., is to be thanked for his conscientious

28 THE ASI-IBURIAN
The First Team did it again. For the second year in a row we
have won all our games. Three years ago no one would have believed
it possible. In that year the team lost seven out of eight games played,
including a 33-0 loss to B.C.S. The next season, in 1953, Tiny Her-
mann became our coach. A combination of Mr. Hermann, the
presence of most of the last year's team and an increased spirit, turned
success in our direction, and we won the B.C.S. Old Boy's Trophy
for the first time in four years. At the beginning of last year we had
the brightest hopes for the future. Nearly all of 1953's big guns were
back, and it seemed as if we had the most powerful team in many
a year. Our hopes were well realized, and the team went undefeated
for what is believed to be the Hrst time in the history of the school.
After a week or so of practice last September, the prospect was
far from optimistic, and the idea of another unbeaten season was the
farthest thing from our minds. Nlost of the 195+ team had graduated,
and our bench strength seemed practically nil. Somehow, however, we
did it. The expert coaching and inspiration supplied by Tiny Her-
mann, the really terrific leadership of our captain and vice-captain,
lrvin and Killaly, the hard-charging of a surprisingly light line,
the skilful ball-handling and running of the backs, and the general
spirit of the whole team, including the ever-ready bench-warmers, all
went to make up another undefeated team.

at very first of the season, he was unable to play on' team. but
proved a IHOSI conscientious and efficient manager.
The Second Team this year could hardly be called successful. in
as much as the team failed to xvin one game. They seemed to lack the
needed cohesion, but in many cases latent ability was shown. A notice-
able improvement in team spirit was evident towards the latter half
of the season. After a fairly successful scrimmage with the second
string of the Firsts, the enthusiasm was given a much needed shot in
the arm, and the team put out what proved to be perhaps their best
performance, even though it produced nothing better than a 16-ll
loss to Upper Canada College. The school is grateful for the faithful
coaching of Moe Zilberggmd Av. Smith, who gave up much of their
free time to be with the team. The Second Team, though unsuccessful,
will provide much of the talent for next year's Firsts and should im-
prove a great deal next year.

THE :lSHBL'Rl.-IN s
THE FOGTBALL DINNER
Again this year the mood of the annual football dinner was loud
and happy, when on November 25th, the Team, Staff, Governors.
and Friends joined together in honouring the unbeaten Firsts. After
some fine football movies, we sat down to a delicious turkey dinner.
well-suited to the assembly of hungry athletes. The head table was
adorned by the B.C.S. Old Boys' Trophy, which is certainly becom-
ing a familiar sight here.
After dinner Mr. Perry introduced the guests at the head table.
who included Tiny Hermann, R. XY. Southam, C. G. Gale, L. C. ID.
Palmer, S. Irvin, N. Rhodes, F. K. Davidson, G. D. Ilughson.
D. B. Cruikshank, Dr. C. K. Rowan-Legg, and the press. Xlr. Belcher.
in his usual witty manner, proposed a toast to the School, followed by
Klac Iiillaly's reply, which included several amusing incidents having
to do with the team. Klr. Brain toasted the team, and the captain
bl. S. Irvin, thanked him and then presented Nlr. Hermann with an enor-
mous sweater coat. Qnjust what I wanted?" said Tinyl. Nlr. .loc
Irvin Sr., in proposing a toast to the coaches, reminded us of the
importance of obeying the coach. The next speaker received perhaps
the biggest ovation of all. It was the respected and well-liked coach
Tiny Hermann. He thanked the team, which he said had done much
better than he had expected.
Football badges, colours, and trophies were then presented. and
to end up a wonderful evening, every member of the First Team was
presented with a statuette from the Governors.

This years soccer team, while much younger than the previous
year's squad in the average age of the players, showed a marked im-
provement in teamwork. There were seven positions to be filled due
to the ahsence of boys from last year, and among the new members
there was a marked determination and stamina, which contributed to
the teams success under pressure. The captain and vice-captain, East-
wood and Birheclt, who have both been on the team for four
years, provided a solid baclclmone for the team, along with Calkoen,
the hard-working centre half. Special mention should also be given to

The 1956 Hockey season commenced with rather mixed feelings.
On the one hand we were most fortunate in retaining our complete
first forward line of Irvin, Uiddrington, and Grant, together with
Killaly on defence. This was their third season together. and for the
most part they produced an excellent brand of hockey. On the other
hand, we were faced with the great loss of having no jimmy XYedd in
goal. Two replacements, Mulkins and Dunford, were tried alternately
until coach Lude Check finally decided on the new boy, Dunford,
40 THE ASHBURIAN
Several other members of the successful 1955 team remained, and
they were able to adapt themselves to positional changes. Drew, Hillary,
and Richardson switched to defence and were joined by Berridge and
Ross 1. Among the forwards we again had Grogan, who teamed up
very successfully with two promoted second teamers Lloyd and Seed,
assisted from time to time by Draper.
The outstanding feature of the season was undoubtedly the pro-
liiic scoring of center joe Irvin, who notched up a total of 21 goals
in the IO games played. Unfortunately, however, although scoring many
goals, we found ourselves all too often on the losing end of the game,
and more positional changes were called for. It was decided that Dun-
ford, although showing promise and trying hard, just did not have
the necessary experience in goal, and Killaly replaced him in the nets
for the last few games of the season. This promised to be a risky
proposition as Killaly had been to this point the only steady defenceman
on the team. Events showed, however, that the right move had been
made, for not only did Killaly play brilliantly in the nets, but the
other defencemen rose to the occasion and gave the team a new lease
The thanks of the team are due to Mr. Anderson and Nlr. Lude
Check for their fine coaching throughout the season.
In closing, a tribute should be paid to the patience and hard work
put in by john Boone, who has successfully managed the team for the
past two seasons.

His year Ashbury had a fairly good ski team coming first in one
out of three meets. The most notable factor of the season was
the remarkable improvement of some of the younger skiers.
At the beginning of the season we found ourselves with only two
of last year's Senior Team back, Southam and Eschauzier, and one
outstanding new boy, Trussler, who was on the team which won the
Canadian junior Championships in 1954. lVe had to stock up our
team with last year's juniors, namely Robinson II, Rivers, I-Ieeney,
and Rowan-Legg. These boys certainly proved themselves worthy of
the position, especially Rowan-Legg, who gained more points than
any other Ashbury skiers in two of three meets.
The first meet was at Northwood School, at Lake Placid on jan.
27th and 28th. In the cross-country john Rowan-Legg came
Hrst. over two minutes faster than the next man. On the second dav
of the meet, Dave Trussler won the downhill, and came second

in the slalom, and managed to top the list for individual honours. As
a team, Ashbury missed the mark in these last two departments. having
won the cross-country the day before, and so finished second best to
our friendly rivals, the American boys. The meet was enjoyed bv all.
and the experience gained from racing on the treacherous Rimrock
trail was invaluable.
The highlight of the season was, without doubt, the Tri-School
Xleet, with B.C.S. and L.C.C., of which we were the hosts this vcar.
and in which we managed to win all three events to take the Cochand
Trophy. .-Xshbury's Rowan-Legg also won the Price Trophy for the
best individual. The meet took place at Camp Fortune on February
18th and 19th. ln the first event, the Slalom, Xlellon and Drvsdale
of L.C.C. came first and second, and Ashburvs Southam and Trussler,

third and fourth respectively.
ln the afternoon, on the Cote
du Nord hill. Rowan-Legg won
the downhill, and Ashbury
skiers filled live out of the first
seven places, in a race with
slow conditions and great im-
portance on waxing. Rowan-
Legg again was Hrst in the
cross-country the next day,
with Annie of B.C.S., and
Trussler third. In the final
standings, Ashbury was well
ahead of second place L.C.C.,
with B.C.S. coming last.
On March 10th, the team travelled to St. Sauveur for the annual
Redbirds Schoolboy Meet, in which we were defending our possession
of the Fred Urqhart Shield, which we won last year. Unfortunately
we only placed fifth, among thirteen schools. L.C.C. won the meet,
and St. Pat's of Ottawa was second. Ashbury's best individual showings
were by Rowan-Legg, who came second in the cross-country, and
Southam who came fifth in the downhill. Rowan-Legg again was first
in the cross-country the next day, with Anvic twelfth. There were sixty-
Apart from these meets, Ashbury boys, as usual, took part in
the local races in the Gatineau, and in many cases did very well. On
one occasion Dave Trussler came second among the senior in a big race
at Xklikelield, and Dave Rhodes came in Hrst in the junior division.
XYe are indebted to Mr. Bruce Heggtveit, who coached us at
the Redbirds Meet, and gave us very valuable help and advice,
especially in CIOSS-Colllltfy racing throughout the season. Our thanks
also to Nlr. Tony Price, who came to Ottawa to coach us in the
Tri-School Meet and helped to give us the co-ordination and spirit
that so contributed to our success. We also appreciate the work of

Again this year an under-16 ski team travelled to Sedbergh to com-
pete against that small, but phenomenally good skiing school, and also
against L.C.C. The meet was on February 25th, and 26th. Sedbergh
outclased L.C.C. and ourselves in all three divisions. Captain Ross
Southam, however, did manage to place second in the downhill.
and third in the slalom. lYhen the totals were added up. Sedbergh had
won. Ashbury was second. and L.C.C. third.

HE boxing eliminations were as spirited as ever this year. with
nearly seventy boys being narrowed down to twenty-two finalists.
On Friday, March Znd., the finals were held. and this turned out to he
a IHOSI exciting evening. with no less than two knockouts and one
technical knockout. Connaught House piled up more points than either
Ubollcombe or Alexander.
Bout No. 1: junior Lightweight CChester Nlaster Trophyl.
NI. Feller CAlexanderJ vs. C. Saxe CConnaughtl.
In the first bout of the evening, the stockier Saxe managed to
out point Feller by a series of solid, steady punching. Although Feller
had the longer reach, he could not put it to best advantage.
54 THE ASHBURIAN
J. lHectorJ Dunford vs. E. C.-Xjaxl Drew.
Bout No. 2: junior Flyweight.
D. L. Peron C1-Xlexanderl vs. H. K. Reed QConnaughtJ.
In this light two small boys put up a wonderful show of deter-
mination and stamina, and both never stopped punching. Reed man-
aged to throw a few more, however, and won the fight.
Bout No. 3: Intermediate Middleweight C1-Xshbury College Challenge
j. G.pLeech CAlexanderj vs. D. M. Pretula QVVoollcombeD.
Pretula, although not a skilful boxer, had a technique which
successfully thwarted Leech's opposition. He displayed powerful,
roundhouse punching, which kept 'his opponent from hitting him too
often, and thereby won the fight.
Bout No. 4: junior Bantamweight.
j. A. Beggs CAlexanderJ vs. M. S. Polk CConnaughtD.
This was one of the most evenly matched bouts of the evening.
Both boys showed considerable skill in the ring, and plenty of punches
were thrown. Polk finally got the judges' decision.
Bout No. 5: junior Middleweight CPattison Challenge Cupj.
XY. C. Patterson CConnaughtJ vs. M. Farrugia CAlexanderj.
ln another very close battle, Patterson managed to outpoint
the old veteran lfarrugia. Both Hghters put up spirited efforts.
Bout No. 6: Intermediate Heavyweight Cklvans Challenge Cupl.
P. R. O'l lara fXYoollco1nbeJ vs. A. Illmslie CConnaughtJ.
O'llara, with considerably more experience in boxing proved
THE ASHBURI.-IN JJ
himself superior, despite the pluckv opposition of lflmslie, and was
awarded a T.K.O. in the second round.
Bout No. 7: Senior lleavvweight tlfauquier Challenge Clupl.
j. Dunford CConnaughtJ vs. lf. sl. Drew lflominmghtl.
lt took only half a minute to decide the l lcavvweight Champion-
ship of the School. The finalists were Drew and llunford, and it
took the lighter and more agile Drew only this long to deliver the
one powerful punch to the jaw which flattened lhmford. llunford
had certainly held his own up until then. hut crumpled under lJrew's
Bout No. 8: junior Featherweight C.-Xshburv College Cjupl.
D. H. Saxe fConnaughtJ vs. P. D. Thornton Lklexanderl.
This was a fascinating fight to watch. as it had one of the most
promising junior boxers seen around the school for some time, namelv
Peter Thornton. This ninety pounder put on a most skilful and de-
ceptively nonehalant display of ringcraft to defeat the pluckv Saxe.
Saxe never stopped moving into Thornton but each time received a
solid punch on the nose. For this effort Thornton won the Grant Cup
Bout No. 9: Senior Middleweight Clfauquier Challenge Cupb.
E. T. Mulkins Qffonnaughtj vs. B. K. Hillary CConnaughtJ.
In the third fight which did not go the full rounds, Bruce Hillary
knocked out the lighter but taller Ed. Mulkins in the first round.
J. Clrlammerl Gamble vs. F. CTongsm l.lovd.
56 THE ASHBURIAN
Nlulkins, a veteran fighter of many finals, was perhaps not in as good
shape as Hillary, who knocked him to the canvas twice in the first
round, the second time for good.
Bout No. 10: Intermediate Lightweight Clidwards Challenge Cupl.
K. G. Cook CVVoollcombeJ vs. VV. S. Miller QVVoollcombeJ.
In this contest Cook soon showed himself to have a superior
knowledge of the ring, and used this to his best advantage against the
older and stronger Miller. Miller, however, threw lots of punches,
and tie fight was a well-matched one.
Bout No. 11: Senior Lightweight CAshbury College Challenge Cupl.
F. D. S. LLoyd CAlexanderJ vs. R. VV. Gamble OVoollcombeD.
This Hnal bout was perhaps the best one of the evening, for it
combined lots of courage, boxing know-how, strength and stamina.
Lloyd, the lighter of the two, was perhaps the more skilful boxer,
but Gamble had the greater weight and strength, and used these
to his advantage with determination, never letting up his powerful
round-house blows. Lloyd, however, never stopped coming back,
shifting and weaving his way around the slower Gamble. Gamble
won the Hght, and Lloyd won the Rhodes Trophy for the loser
showing the most courage and determination.
HE annual cross-country race was run off on Saturday, April 28th,
on a cloudy, cool day. As it had rained the night before the course
was very wet.
In the Under-11 group Feller was well ahead at the finish,
followed by Polk I, and Appel. Most of this group had Hnished
before the seniors started. In the next division, the juniors, Bray was
the winner, with Oosterbaan and Powell I filling second and third
places respectively. Rowan-Legg ran away from all competition on
the three and one half mile intermediate course, to finish well ahead
of second place Young. lilmslie was third.
In the senior division, the favourite and last year's winner, Hillary,
took the lead at the start, and held it all the way around the four
mile course. Grant I was urging him on all the way and came second.
The third place position fell to Hiney, who in the past seven years
has come second five times, and third twice in cross-country races.
The large majority of those who ran, won a point for their house,
by coming within a certain number of minutes of the winner's time,
depending on the age group. Connaught House won the meet gaining
41 points. Alexander was next with 385, and IVoollcombe had 325

hreastsrrolte, and free-style races for seniors and intermediates, and

Due to poor Weather and the impending Cadet Inspection, the
tennis got off to a late start this year. However, immediately after
inspection day play got underway both here and at the Rideau Tennis
The highlight this spring was the Tennis Team's trip to North-
wood School at Lake Placid, N.Y. The team, consisting of Seed,
Captain, Rockingham, Flam l, Arnold, and Baird left with Xlr. -Iobling
on the morning of Sunday, May 13th, arriving at Northwood that
evening. The next morning there was a much needed practice for the
Ashbury team, and at 2.00 P.M. the matches started. The steady, fast
playing of the Northwood team and Ashbury's lack of practice soon
told, and all the matches went to Northwood. Brian Seed put up a
fine battle against Tony Pell, but couldn't manage the fast, hard style
of the Northwood team captain.
More fine tennis was displayed when Seed and Rockingham were
edged in the doubles by Pell and johnson. In spite of the defeat,
the team had a very enjoyable trip, and thanks are due to Alt. jobling
for organizing it.
The School Tournament soon got under way with a large number
participating. After several close matches Seed and Draper met in the
finals with Seed coming out winner after an exciting match 6-2, -I-6,
6-3, and 6-2.

me season opened in mid April in dismal Weather and prospects were
doubtful with only three players back from last yearls team, two
only with colours. The early matches Cone of them in a blizzard of
snowj produced one or two isolated performances worthy of note and
the eleven, reinforced on occasion as in the past with one or two staHf
members, were just able to hold their own against teams in the local
league. But shortage of practice due to the inclement weather was very
evident and the inexperienced members of the team had little oppor-
tunity to pick up more than the mere rudiments of the game. The
season ended, however, on a cheerful note with an interesting win over
the Old Boys and a decisive win over Defence C.C. This last match is

which earned them possession of the lf. F. lllTCl lXlAN trophy which
was so kindly presented this year by the Ottawa Yallev Cricket'Council
for annual competition between the two schools. i
Easily the greatest contribution was made by lfastwood as Captain
for, going in first, he usually batted with great patience but found
partners to stay with him on far too few occasions. Also, he bowled
every bit as well as expected, and together with his deputy Killalv.
gained valuable experience in some of the difiicult points of cricket
captaincy, particularly in the matter of field settings and the management
of a rather limited bowling attack. Mention should also be made of
Killaly for his example on and off the field, of llazell for his support
both with bat and ball, and of Rhodes, MacKinnon, and jones for their

matter of LBXV at the start of some of his innings was disappointing.
but he learned the leg glide and drove effectively on occasion. As
usual, he bowled with great endurance and accuracy and headed
both batting and bowling averages.
L. M. KILLALX'-x7fC6-CHPIQTH, 3rd year. He set a high standard with
his keen fielding and exemplary conduct on and off the field. In
so doing he made up in large measure for a spotty season with the
bat caused by poor footwork.

ball. A safe catch and very strong and accurate throw.

two or three occasions. Bowled intelligently if somewhat expen-
sively at times but showed he knows something about fiight.

performed most creditably. Has possibilities as a defensive batsman.
AIACKINNON-lSI year. XYith experience he should make a useful
contribution with right hand spin. Reliable fielder and with im-
proved footwork should score runs.
McA'NL'LTY-2nd year. Slow footwork kept his scores down. He
must learn to field more cleanly.
NURSE-ISI year. Should score when he gets some idea of defence and
footwork. Fair field.

bowl more effectively. Plays forward too much but can pull to leg
strongly. Quick and neat in the field.

UNDER 16 CRICKET XI
On the Under 16 field, a very large group of boys, most of them
new to the game, took part in regular practice when possible but no
Bradmans appeared and their contemporaries at Bishops had little
difficulty in winning both home and home games. Several promising
beginners such as Tucker, Bruce, Brown, Sarkis, and Geggie were noted,
their interest augurs well for the future. Reid in his capacity as Captain
strove manfully to make up for the inexperience of his team mates, and
two enjoyable matches were also played with the Sedbergh lst XI who
were able to Win comfortably.

this year, winning five out of the seven house competitions. IYith
the powerful nucleus of Irvin, Grant, Hillary, Drew, Richardson,
Grogan, and several others in the various sports, they proved to be
the strongest house.
VVoollcombe House, as was expected, overwhelmed the other
two houses in Cricket, a lot of credit going to Bill Eastwood's bowling
and batting. This house is also to be commended for their spirited
showing in the football game against Connaught. Captain Mike NVid-
drington, taking a prominent part in all events, will be missed next year.
Alexander House has come into its own since its start four years
ago, and should be commended for its surprising upset in the Hockey.

THE SCI-IOCL FORMAL
HE Ashbury Formal this year, on Friday, April 13th, was undoubt-
ably one of the best we've ever had. Something new was tried
this year, in that we moved the location from the school gym. to
the Country Club, on the Aylmer Road. The decorations consisted
only of a few vases of Howers, getting away from the familiar crepe
paper and balloon setting, and the atmosphere was more that of a ball.
There were two large rooms for dancing, in one of which the ex-
cellent orchestra of Fred Quirouette played. The food, prepared by
tie Country Club, was lavish and delicious.

OLD BOYS' SECTION
HE weather was not so cooperative this year on Saturday, October
15th when the Old Boys' Reunion was held. Reports of a minor
hurricane which was to sweep down on Ottawa that day were, how-
ever, exaggerated and the morning was dry, if gusty. Quite a large
group of Old Boys turned out for the activities of this annual affair.
A decisive win over B.C.S. by our First Football Team set the proper
tone to the morning. After registration in Argyle, refreshments and
a buffet luncheon were served in the gymnasium.
At 2:00 in the afternoon the Ottawa Branch of the Old Boys Asso-
ciation met at the same time that the Board of Governors was having
its meeting. At 2:45 P.M. there was a meeting of the Corporation
of Ashbury College. The afternoon programme included a soccer
match between our First Team and R.M.C. A Dinner Dance at the
Royal Ottawa Golf Club completed the days activities. About a
hundred guests attended and all had a line evening.
The traditional Old Boys Service was held in the School Chapel
on Sunday morning. After the Service, Mr. and Mrs. R. XV. Southam
entertained the Old Boys and their guests.

74 THE ASHBURIAN
THE OLD BOYS' DINNER
N Monday june 11th, the Ottawa Branch held its Dinner. It was
by far the most successful in recent years.
About 60 Old Ashburians crowded first of all into the Head-
master's house for the usual appetite stimulus, and then to Symington
Hall for the big steaks. CFreddie Maclaren, cfo Canada Packers, was
of course Head of the Dinner Committeeb.
Blair Fraser, Ottawa Editor of Macleans, and father of Rhodes
Scholar, john FRASER, 1952, spoke after dinner on The Roll of the
Independent School. He was all for it! Mr. Fraser was introduced by
Geoff Hughson, President of the Old Boys' Association, and thanked
by joe Irvin.
The Headmaster gave a brief outline of the past year and plans
for the future. Among the Old Boys who were here for their first visit
in some years were: Charles YVINTER, 1942, S. Blair GILMOUR,
1930, Robbie THOMAS, 1946, G. H. VVHITCHER, 1931, and XY.

CAPTAIN OF THE SCHOOL
KILLALY, MAC-"He that fearcth every bush,
illllst 7l6"l't'3T go a-birding."
In the role of school captain, Mac has perfonned admirably and has had
a tremendous influence on students of all levels throughout the school.
His sincere sense of leadership and wonderful loyalty to the school have
been a great asset to all who are proud of Ashbury. Athletically, Mac
has once again been outstanding in lst football, hockey, and cricket,
having been re-awarded his colours in all three. Among his other ac-
complishments he was adjutant in the corps, and a fine student. This
summer Nip's main job will probably be golf, golf and more golf on
the local links. All of us, particularly the prefeets, thank him for his
help and friendship and wish him the very best of luck in the further-
ance of his learning at Princeton.
C.APT.AIN OF THIC BOARDERS
lVIDDRINGTON, MIKE-"A saddcr and a wiser 111.111,
He 'woke the 1110rr0u' morn."
Completing his fifth and final year, "YVidders" has, indeed, an interesting
and varied career to look back on in the halls of Ashbury. This year,
Mike has been captain of two highly illustrious groups, the Boarders,
and Woollcombe House, and in both cases, has shown himself con-
scientious and efficient. Athletically, he had his colours re-awarded for
his sterling play in both football and hockey. He also holds the distinction
of being the school's foremost baseball authority, and is a strong booster
of Mickey Mantle and his hometown "Yankees," XVhen Mike leaves
next year to pursue the field of Radio and Television Arts at Ryerson,
both Ashbury and Carole Lee will have lost a good man.
CAPTAIN or THE DAY Boys
IRVIN JOE-"A bachelor is one who Cl1'0V.Y the chase
1 1 . 1
but does not ear the game"
Ioe has been at Ashbury now for five years and has just completed his
last before setting out for McGill. Our prominent bachelor from Rockcliffe
has spent two years as a member of the Prefect body, the latter filling
excellently the role of Captain of the Dayboys. Once again joe has
been the hero of the local sports world, having been re-awarded his
lst team colours in football and hockey and chosen most valuable player
in both. Military-wise, he was Captain and 2 i.c. of the Corps. Despite
his vicious left hook, Joe was unfortunately eliminated from the boxing
finals. Best of luck, joe, in the journey ahead!
DREVV, EDXVARD-"The hour TIIDUII you, 100, learn
that all is fain, and that H opc so-1:5
what Low shall 11e1'er re-ap"
Ed has now spent five years at Ashbury interrupted by a two year
holiday at a European school. In football he was one of those who made
up the big front wall, and eamed his colours in this position. During
the winter he played lst hockey in a defensive position. "Killer Ed",
as he is called by boxing enthusiasts, took the heavyweight boxing title
by battering his opponent in a quick knockout. The spring term saw
him as a noble member of the academic field. In cadets Ed was 2nd
platoon lieutenant and saw "his boys" take the best platoon award.
Ed hopes to enter McGill next year, but we are sure that, wherever he
goes, he will do well.
ESCHAUZIER, I-IENRI-"His song is the voice of
desire which hamlts his drea1115"
This year, Henri is drawing to a close his eighth and final year at
Ashbury. "Beau" Qdue to his many fine shoes and ski-pole collectionl
has blossomed forth as a big time coach for the 3rd football team.
During the winter he was kept busy answering letters and racing on
two wooden slats as a very conscientious Co-Captain of the Ski Team.
Added to these many triumphs was the fine job done by "H.P." in the
Guard of Honour. Next year is a puzzle to our "Intemational friend"-he
doesn't know whether to accept a contract with the Cincinnati Red
Legs or go to McGill. We wish Henri the best of luck and hope that
the big distance is much shorter.

F INLAY, TERRY-"Lukefwarnzness I account a sin as
great in love as in religion."
Terry has distinguished himself in many ways during his eight years at
Ashbury. This year he was made a prefect and completed his second
very successful year as C.O. of the Cadet Corps, while at the same time
being religious advisor to Irvin. Terry also played 1st football,
was captain of the basketball team, and photographic editor of the
"Ashburian". But in spite of his busy life here he manages to keep posted
on events in New York, and occasionally delights us with his sweet
scented letters. "Rev" is striving for further education at Huron College,
Ont., and we wish him the best of luck.
GRANT, GREGOR-"In lofve content, in physics
VVe were all pleased to see that Greg was elevated to the rank of
prefect this year, and he has shown that the choice was an excellent
one. This is Greg's fourth and final year at Ashbury, during which he
has distinguished himself in many fields. He was awarded his colours in
hockey and football and also the Most Improved Player Award in the
latter sport. He was 2IC of the Guard of Honour in the Inspection.
Since then his activities have been limited to studying at home. How-
ever we occasionally see him venturing over to the school grounds at
various and sundry times presumably to get help in his workf?J. Greg
is off to McGill next year to further his education in the nature of a
B.Sc. Best of luck in the future, Greg!
GROGAN, RICHARD-'CA man is a fool 'who holds
anything to be' ridiculous save
that 'which is bad."
Richard, or "Grogy" hails from the great city to the east of Ottawa,
and doesn't hesitate to let us know. In the matter of football or hockey, he
vigorously supports the home teams and should anyone venture to deride
them, the words, "This is-ridiculous" will surely be heard above all other
protestations of Montreal fans.
Grogy was a stalwart member of lst hockey and football and received lst
colours for the latter. At Christmas he joined the prefect group where
he proved efficient and conscientious. He has worked conscientiously
for his junior Matric and has plans for McGill next year. Good luck,
"Grogy", and keep calm!
XV.-XRD, LINDSAY-"Every dog has his dayf'
Lindsay is our newest prefect, having been appointed at Easter time.
He is the electrical genius of the school, and Mr. Sibley's chief lab
technician, his pockets always filled with everything from radio tubes
to atomic fire crackers. Staff-Sgt. VVard distinguished himself in cadets
this year, planning, organizing, and setting up the special section of
signallers, which played a prominent part in the mock battle. He was also
assistant Editor of the "Ashburian". Lindsay was on the lst soccer
team this year, and in the winter could usually be found sliding down
the slopes of Rockcliffe Park at incredible speeds. An above average
scholar, Lindsay hopes to enter Electrical Engineering at Queen's next
year after six years devoted to the school. Best of luck, L.P.!
XYOOLLCOXIBE, STEVE-"To provoke laughter 'with-
out joining in it greatly
heightens the effect."
Steve has finished his ninth year at the School, this time in the
lllutoniau depths land fogl of the Prefect's Common Room. He is a
good scholar and was a stalwart tackle in the lst football team, winning
his colours. He also played lst Cricket. Cadet-wise, this Master Cadet
was the fire-breathing sergeant of the lst Platoon. One of VI-A's most
skilled lah teclmicians, Steve won a reputation because of his dexterity
with fragile glass apparatus lnotice the broken glass and spilled chemi-
calsi. He was also Editor of this magazine. Steve intends to return next
year, iu what capacity we know not. See you then, Steve.
AMO G THE GRADUATES
The oldest import from Buckingham, was a valuable member of the lst
Soccer Team last fall and when winter came he continued his valuable
services as manager of the Ist Hockey Team. XVe were very shocked
when, without waming, he was rushed off to hospital for another eye
operation. Now that his eyes have seen the light again he may resume
racing his parents' cars over country roads, arguing with his brother.
and thinking about those nurses in the hospital.
Kase tThe boy Calkoenl has continued his works this year in both games
and school. In games he received his lst colours in soccer, was a
member of the ski field, and did well in running events. lie is one of
the "brains" of YI-A and is especially outstanding in Mr. jobling's
French Classes. He was in the Girard of Honour for the Cadet Inspec-
tion. Spare time is spent "studying" L?l or "chi-rehezing une femme".
He is well liked. and we wish him all the best in his college career.
Iohn is completing his final year at Ashbury. During his three years
here, "Mickey', has made a name for himself, and upheld the school on
the victorious debating team two years in succession, as well as in the
poetry reading and public speaking departments. john did very well
on the lst Soccer Team and backed Connaught in the soccer house
series. For the past two winters John was the 2nd Hockey net-minder
and took well deserved colours. Next year John plans to smash off to
the British Isles for "higher learning" at Bristol University, and we of
the graduating class wish him the very best.
Bill, who hails from glorious sunny Venezuela, is completing his sixth
and final year at Ashbury. He was Captain of Soccer and Cricket, at
which sports he was very proficient and took his colours in them again,
as well as in basketball. His room. because of the presence of a hi-fi
record player, put a serious crimp in the business of the Club Chez Sibley,
and the music was quite enjoyable in the junior YVing. A member of
that elite corps, the Master Cadets, Bill was lieutenant of the 3rd platoon,
and drill instructor extraordinary. Everyone wishes him luck at the
C.M.R. next year.
HAZELL I, GEORGE-
George came to Ashubry in September from England. In spite of his
peculiar jokes he has become a much valued member of VI-B. He was
a lst colours holder for Soccer, and also a great addition to the lst
Cricket Team. Unfortunately, George is leaving us to go back to
England in June. but we wish him luck for the next year and hope he
will visit us in the near future. XVatch out, England, here he comes!

This is Carl's fifth and last year at Ashbury. Next year he is setting
out for Toronto for a somewhat mysterious career. However, he should
think of settling in Montreal, as it would be a shame to waste the talents
of one of Mr. Iobling's prize French students. There have been reports
recently of people begging Carl to take them home for the weekend, but
he is strangely reluctant. All the best in the future, Carl!
George has been an ardent student at Ashbury for the nast Eve years.
He came here in the fall of 'fifty-one and since then has taken part in
many activities at Ashbury. A Room Captain, he was also President of
the Senior Common Room since Christmas. Athletically, he has been
a member of 2nd Hockey and Football Teams and the lst Soccer Eleven,
This is his last year here, and next year should see him in Switzerland,
furthering his studies.
Brian came to Ashbury six years ago. Since then he has proved to be
one of the most popular boys in the school. This year "McNUT" played
football, basketball, and cricket. He shares the limelight with Lindsay
Ward as being Ashbury's only misogynists. Brian's infectious grin is
the bane of Mr. jobling in French class. Next year's activities are un-
decided for Brian, but we all wish him the best of luck in whatever
M ULKINS, EDWARD-
Eddie has been at Ashbury for seven years and is graduating this year.
He is hoping upon Hope to get into Bishop's next year. During his time
at Ashbury we would say beyond a doubt that Ed set the all-time
record for the most words spoken in that period. Apart from leading the
conversation in the Senior Common Room, he played lst team football,
hockey and cricket, was a most successful instructor of the L.M.G. in
cadets, and reached the Hnals in the boxing tournament. We wish Bishop's
luck next year, and also Eddie.
Ted, "the friendly undertaken' from Knowlton, Que., was one of the
sterling additions to VI-B this year. Noted als an end in lst Football
with exceedingly sticky fingers, his prowess in basketball was such as
tu enuse the sight of him on the floor to terrorize all comers, and his
name travelled fair aheld. He was ai member of the most successful Guard
of Honour. Ted plans to crash into business next year, which will tum
the stock market on its car, and we all wish him the greatest luck.
Femando came to Ashbury into Remove from Venezuela three years ago,
and this year he leaves Ashbury to complete his education back in the
great home republic. Though Paz is fairly able, we don't often see him
sweating over his books in class, unless he is using a pile of them as a
port from which he "shoots" everyone in sight with his ever present
camera. Some of the pictures doubtless eould be used to his advantage
financially! All going well, later years will see Paz as a mining engineer.
Good digging, Paz.
In his third year at Ashbury Gordie played lst Team Football and
Hockey, receiving lst Colours in the latter. This spring, however his
athletic abilities have been confined to the Matriculation field where,
we suppose, he spends his free time with the books. Cadet-wise, he
was a member of the Colour Party for the inspection. Next year Gordie
is going for an eighteen month cruise in the "Yankee", no doubt to
recover from the rigours of the high life at school. As for his summer
activities, it can be said that he will stay in Ottawa for June at least.
Iohn comes to us from the mists of Vancouver. In his third year here,
he has become an individual member of the upper half of VI-B. An
energetic participant in several fields of sports he captured his colours
for lst football, and was Vice-Captain of the 2nd Hockey Team, as well
as playing for the Tennis lsts. Another Master Cadet, he was lieutenant
of the lst platoon. His hobbies are model aeroplanes and prolonging
chemistry experimentsg then forgetting where he stopped. Next year will
see him at McGill, seeking Honours in Civil Engineering, which, we are
all sure will follow as easily as the gains he has made here.
Our bomb-shell from North Bay readily established himself with his good
humour and easy-going manner. Dave was a stalwart member of the
lst Football Team, and after making some touchdowns, got his lst
Colours, which he also got for skiing. He is a fast climber and in one
year obtained the rank of Sergeant in the cadet corps. Known for his
coordination plus in the Guard of Honour, we hope he starts off with
his left leg first in life and leaves bargaining to itself. He can tell you
about finger printing machines Cask Mr. Brainj and petroleum too.
He is off to McGill next fall, and we all wish him the best of luck.

82 THE ASI-IBURIAN
EADovER was held in the gymnasium, on Wednesday, june 6th.
Here the Headmaster summed up the yearls activities, expressed
some exceedingly sound admonitions on behaviour generally, and
awarded athletic colours and badges.
In alluding to sports and outdoor activities, he mentioned first the
conspicuous success of the Football Team in their accomplishment of
a second consecutive undefeated season. In other sports he felt that we
had enjoyed our fair share of successes. He heartily congratulated the
Cadet Corps whose performance this year had equalled their best
Referring to general behaviour, he counseled caution in the matter
of fire hazards, the dire results of which had been so manifest in Ottawa
this year, also in the manner of driving. The motor-car, he said, was
becoming a more and more dangerous threat to a community, if the
vehicle were in charge of an irresponsible person.
He then warmly congratulated the Staff and Prefects on the
competence and conscientiousness with which they had fulfilled their
respective tasks, also those in charge of medical and domestic administra-
After having awarded colours, he proceeded to bid farewell and
good luck to all those who were leaving-to those, who were graduating,
and to those who he hoped would be returning next year.
Hi: Annual sports took place as usual on the morning of closing
day, which this year fell on Thursday, 7th of june. Once again we
were blessed with sunshine and blue skies, in strict contrast to the
overcast weather on preceding days. Many parents were on hand to
witness some exciting races, and there were more than enough sporting
Mothers and Old Boys to make their respective races even more suc-
cessful than usual. Indeed, the Old Boys race must surely have been
run in the best time for many years and was won by D. MacDonald.
The Nlothers race was won in fine style by Mrs. Molson.
The running and jumping of the boys was of an extremely high
standard this year. as shown by the fact that no fewer than five
school records were broken and one was equalled. The only Senior
record to go was the javelin, in which Eddie Drew broke 'his own
record with a fine throw of lS0ft. 7ins. In the Intermediate category,
THE ASHBURIAN 83
john Rowan-Legg lowered his own record in the 880yds. to 2 mins.
26.2 secs. and also set a new record for the Zlllyds. at 25.0 secs. Tony
Sugden created a new record in the llflyds. llurdles with the fine time
of 15.2 secs. and also equalled the existing record for the lntermediate
Broad jump of l8ft. lllins. In junior events the lone record breaker
was john Lawson, who lowered the 4-Hlyds. by 4 secs. to a new time
of 1 min. 6secs. Mention must also be made of the excellent record of
Bruce Hillary for his triple successes in winning the school Senior
cross-country, the one mile and also the 880yds events, all in very fast
This year the winning House on a points basis was Connaught
House, who rounded off a successful morning by winning both the
Senior and junior House relays, and so won the Wilson Shield
from the holders, XYoollcombe House, and close rivals, Alexander
Thanks are in order for the line job done by oflicials and grounds-
man Ted Marshall on once again making this a really successful Sports
day. Our gratitude is also expressed to Alt. TY. Eakin who kindly
consented at short notice to present the prizes.
Congratulations to Nlr. Anderson, to whom as Instructor, and
Clerk of the Course. goes the chief credit for the successful meet.

N the afternoon of Thursday,
june 7th, following the Sports
Finals of the morning, the Leaving
Service was held in the Chapel, and
the Closing Ceremonies in the South
Quadrangle. Again we were blessed
with beautiful weather and, indeed,
our consistent good fortune in this
respect has been almost miraculous.
The Chairman of the Board of
Governors, Mr. R. VV. Southam,
opened the proceedings with a short
address in which he expressed grati-
iication with the success of the year passed and with the fact that
already our enrolment was full for the year to come. He then called
upon the Head Boy, L. M. Killaly to deliver the valedictory address.
The full text of this valedictory is to be found elsewhere in the maga-
zine, and Killaly is to be heartily congratulated on the quality of the
material as well as on the manner of its presentation.
The Headmaster was then asked to make his report. During the
course of his comments, he announced a change in policy for next year.
He stated his conviction that boys who were obviously not university
material should not be admitted to matriculation classes. In view of
this fact, he said, such boys would be required to enter classes where
they would be taught only "basic", or fundamental subjects. ln this
manner those boys who 'were of sound academic calibre would be un-
impeded by classmates of duller metal. This, he pointed out, was in line
with the most recent trends in educational policies and recommenda-
tions of The Department.
l lis address was followed by that of the guest speaker, Claude T.
Bissell, KIA., Ph.D. President-elect of Carleton College, Ottawa. Dr.
Bissell said, in effect, that it was unnecessary that all students should
regard a university as the only desirable goal. He stressed the need
in this country, not only for academicians but also for builders, artisans,
tradesinen. i i
Prizes were then awarded by the following distinguished guests:

THE ASHBURIAN 93
Delitvsred by L. Xl. Ktt.L.u.v, Head Boy
Mr. Chairman, Xlr. Headmaster, Ladies and Gentlemen:
This is the last Closing Ceremony in which l shall have the privi-
lege of taking part as a student. l realize that, to-day, a trulv great
honour has been bestowed upon me, that of deliveringithe Yaleidictory
Address on behalf of the graduating class.
For one who has known her well, leaving Ashbury cannot be
a pleasant experience. One will soon forget the occasional admonitions.
the petty squabbles, and the toe-to-toe battles for Saturday night leave,
but one can NEVER forget the true and lasting friendships, the matur-
ing experiences, and the warm and vital spirit of Ashbury.
I do not mean to imply, however, that life at Ashburv is alwavs
that proverbial "bowl of cherries", for I am sure that each and everv
one of us, at some stage of his tenure here, has roundly cursed at
least one aspect of the School, perhaps the Masters, the Prefects, or
even the school-work itself. But we must learn to accept the hard
knocks that are dealt to us in our school days, and face up to them
like men. Ashbury has a great tradition of producing leaders in various
walks of life, but we will never become leaders in any field of endea-
vour, until we can first accept and appreciate discipline ourselves.
We have all learned many things from our years at Ashbury. We
have learned Mathematics, and Sciences, and Languages. We have learn-
ed to play Football, and Hockey, and Basketball. We have learned to
march smartly on Cadet Parades. But I sincerely hope that we have
learned much more than this. I hope we have learned how to get
along with the "other In the world of to-day, beset by political
differences, racial conflicts, and economic strife, I feel it is. indeed,
a tribute to Ashburv, that boys of so many different creeds and nation-
alities live together 'harmoniously in an atmosphere of peace and friend-
ship. I also hope that we have learned a sense of true value, not a value
of dollars and cents, for money matters very little, but the ability to
put the really important things of life in their proper perspective.
Such qualities of priceless value as integrity, courage, faith, and honour
are not things which may be bought at an auction by the highest
bidder. These are qualities which can only be acquired by the example
set, and patient and understanding assistance. Ashbury, I believe, goes
a long way in helping her students to attain these virtues which are
so important to all our lives. Finally, I hope that Ashbury will, in
future vears, be able to look back upon her graduating class of "56"
with aisense of pride and satisfaction.
94 THE ASHBURIAN
On behalf of those who are leaving, I would like to thank those
who have helped us in both our academic and personal problems, the
Headmaster, the Directors of Studies, Mr. Brain and Mr. Sibley, and
all the members of the Staff who have so evidently had our interests
at heart and to whom we owe so much. Then, too, I want to thank
the Prefects, the Room-Captains, and all the School Dfficers for the
sterling jobs that they have done this year, but, more particularly, the
boys themselves, for their continued co-operation. VVithout that, of
course, Ashbury could not have functioned so smoothly and efficiently.
As Mr. Perry so aptly expresses it, "The fag of to-day is the Prefect
In conclusion, I would like to quote a familiar line from Tenny-
son's "Ulysses", a line which seems to me to sum up so perfectly
the proud, but at the same time, humble aspirations of all those re-
maining here, as well as of those who are leaving.
"TO STRIVE, T0 SEEK, TO FIND, AND NOT TO YIELD."
THE ASHBURIAN 95
HAT is there that can be called one of the greatest friends, and
yet one of the most fiendish of enemies, that mankind has to
cope with, that for millions of years has preserved and destroyed
human life and property, without which man could not have survived,
yet as a result of which thousands grieve every year. This thing is
one of the important studies of modern chemistry, and also one of
the ancient elements. It is fire.
Since the beginning of time the smooth-skinned and warm-blooded
human race have kept themselves warm, and hence alive, with the
use of this wonderful tool of men. Apart from this, fire cooks man's
food, lights his home, produces his metals, and destroys his refuse. In
the earliest days Hintstone was used to start small open fires around
which our prehistoric ancestors crouched. Today we see industrial furn-
aces reach tremendous proportions, and almost all houses with a fire-
place or a furnace.
Yet in spite of the great boon fire has been to life on earth, let
us not forget the terrible tragedies wrought by it. How many millions
of lives it has ended, acres of woodland destroyed, dollars worth
of properties rendered useless, no one could attempt to estimate, but
if figures were available, they would be staggering. We have only
to look at the naked shell of a once proud and magnificent building,
or the tear-stained, anguished face of a mother whose children were
burnt to death, to realize the cruel, callous, and completely unjust
nature of this destructive murderer.
Nevertheless there is something about this two-faced giant of
nature that breeds in one a strange fascination toward it. This some-
thing is an inexplicable and indefinable attraction which affects us all
to a greater or lesser degree. For no really good reason, we find our-
selves mysteriously drawn towards lire. Vie travel many a mile to
watch a house burn down, or sit for hours, gazing at the lighted
hearth, enchanted by the beautiful, multicoloured, multiform forks of
XYhat causes this weird fascination we don't know. He do know
that fire can be our servant or our master, depending on how we treat
it. It is Natures Jekyll St Hyde. It is the obsession of pyromaniacs and
it is the motherly companion of wandering hunters. It is a vital neces-
sity of life, and it fills one of the most prominent roles in the story

ig stood there on the vast windswept expanse and the beads of
sweat rolled down his back. As a veteran traveller of the north,
Sergeant Strong of the R.C..Xl.P. thought this could only happen to
A fresh wave of panic swept over him, it wasn't often he was
afraid but now he had good reason. He was lost! Determined not to let
his fear conquer him, he began to run, thinking he was going in the
direction of the rescue boat. It was beginning to snow and the wind
Hung stinging pellets of snow into his face. He stumbled on a jutting
block of ice and fell. Suddenly a dark fleeting shape appeared a few
yards from where he had fallen, and then another. He stumbled to his
feet and a new fear came into his mind-Arctic wolves. A shudder
passed over him as he realized what might happen if he stumbled again.
Quickly he unstrapped his rifle from his shoulder and held it ready in
his hands. He shot towards the wolves and heard a sharp cry as a grey
shape fell. Instantly the other wolves swarmed over the body. He
hurried away from that spot, filled with terror at the sight of the
A great desire to stop and lie down came over him, but he drove
on in a desperate light for life. Amid this awful turmoil he found
something ironical in the fact that he, who was a member of an emerg-
ency Arctic rescue squad, was lost. The snow was blinding and the
cold had grown unbearable. He knew he could not go much farther,
but he thought he was going in the right direction and he would not
give up without a fight. He gave one last desperate cry as he fell for
the last time. Then all was quiet, except for the wind and the far off
howl of the wofves.
Two figures sat huddled on the deck of an R.C.M.P. rescue boat
which was waiting patiently for the return of Sergeant Strong-veteran
of the Arctic. Their voices could be heard faintly through the howling
"Did you hear a noise, sir?" the shorter of the two said.
"No, l didn't hear a thing, it was probably only the wind. It
sometimes plays tricks on you on nights like this."
THIL BIQGINNINGS OF NIHILISNI
me story of nihilism may well be called a chapter in the develop-
ment of terrorism, as the nature of the nihilist mind is, in great
part, that of the terrorist. Nihilism emerged from the ideas and ideals
of the Russian revolutionists of the nineteenth century, and, among
THE .-ISHBURI.-IN 97
others, the na111e of Nichayev has remained a symbol in tl1e llllI1LlS of
the supporters and instigators of revolution, even though Nichavcv's
leadership lasted only a few vears.
Nichayev was tl1e son of the priest i11 a small Russian village,
and his father l1ad always hoped that he would go into tI1e priesthood.
But Nichayev gave up these ideas, and st11died literature, philosophy.
and history at 1111iversity. Tl1ere, through frequent reading-ranging
fron1 the socialism of Karl .Nlarx to the anarchis111 of Xlichael lialcunin
and Peter Kropotkin, he became a man of his own ideals.
The young Nichaycv started l1is 111ove111ent a111ong the youtl1 i11
the universities. At the 5211110 tin1e he becan1e a good friend of tl1e
powerful agitator, Klichael Bakunin, and together they distributed
pamphlets of propaganda. Tl1ey created great interest and enthusiasn1
among the students, and soon Nichayev was the leader of a small group
The theory of l1is followers was to create a new civilization, totally
different fron1 the present one. Nihilism stressed the need to destroy
existing economic and social institutions, morals, and customs. and
anything else that played a part in the life of Russia at that time. The
nihilists were not without constructive programs, b11t agreement on
these was not essential to the in1mediate objective, total destruction.
The means had no limit, and after the destruction the new creation
would be left to itself. Direct action, such as assassination and arson.
was characteristic. Such acts were not necessarily directed by any
central authority. Small gro11ps, and even individuals were encouraged
to plan and execute terroristic acts independently.
Nichayev was now being sought by the police, and as a result
he suddenly disappeared completely. He reappeared however, saying
that he had escaped fron1 the prison at St. Petersburg, and he used this to
explain his absence. However, he needed more 111oney to execute his
plans, and went to Switzerland with Bakunin. From there he distri-
buted propaganda and money until he was finally i111prisoned at St.
This was the end of Nichayev, but the Nichayev monster l1ad
been built, and his spirit becan1e an instrument to further the revolution.
THE UNKNOVVN MAN
N Thursday, the twelfth of April of the year 1956, a young
United States Air Force General was placed squarely in the
limelight. He succeeded General Alfred Gruenther in one of demo-
Q8 THE ASHBURIAN
cracy's most crucial positions, that of N.A.T.O's supreme commander
The name is Lauris Norstad. If you had never heard of General
Norstad before his recent appointment, you were merely one of
thousands in both Europe and North America. But Lauris Norstad is
truly a fascinating man, a dynamic and capable man who, more than
anyone else, was responsible for the colossal success of American air
operations during the Second lVorld Hiar.
Lauris Norstad was born in Red lVing, Minnesota, in 1907, the
son of a Norwegian Lutheran Minister. A visit to Fort Riley, the
big Cavalry post in Kansas, gave him the "army bug" in his early
teens. Later, Norstad obtained an appointment to VVest Point, grad-
uating in 1930 as a commissioned cavalry officer. However, he soon
switched to the Air Corps and qualified as a pilot. Stunt flying was
his forte and he still brags about the fact that he has never had
At the beginning of the Second Vliorld lVar Norstad was just
a captain, but was marked as a "coming man". In 1941, he was chosen
to head the first Air Force intelligence school, and his phenomenal success
in planning the air invasion of North Africa in 1942, and the air
operations that accompanied the Allied invasions of Italy and Sicily
the following year brought him the youngest Generalship in United
States history. He was recalled to Vlfashington early in 1944 to be-
come Chief of Staff of the 20th Air Force and Deputy Chief of Staff
of the entire Army Air Force. As Chief of Staff of the new 20th
Air Force, he organized the most deadly bombardment outfit ever
known, and handled all the top level planning for the devastating
attacks it made upon the japanese home islands. His was the strategy
that was followed in the incendiary bomb raids which leveled much
of Tokyo, and in the atomic bomb blow which made rubble of
lliroshima and corpses of 80,000 of its residents.
:Xt the conclusion of the war, he remained in the United States
until 1951 when he was called to Europe as commander of all Allied
Air Forces in Central Europe. In this position he remained until the
departure of Alfred Gruenther. Never has this handsome, boyish
looking General who is still less than fifty years of age, been placed
in a position of such weight and responsibility, but he is nonetheless,
well qualified for the assignment.
Perhaps the greatest tribute to Norstad was that written bv Dwight
Eisenhower shortly after their first meeting in the early 19-l0's. Eisen-
THE ASHBURIAN 99
hower wrote, "Norstad so impressed me by his alertness, grasp of
problems, and personality that I never thereafter lost sight of him. He
was, and is, one of those rare men whose capacity knows no limits."
The blazing sun rides high above our eyes,
As wisps of foamy clouds embrace the blue,
XYhile in the west the warbling linnet Hies,
And at our feet the grass grows crisp and new.
Then suddenly the wisps begin to meld
To great and monstrous, billowing fields of gray,
The sun to which we all our comfort held,
Slides from our view, and finds us in the fray
Of wind and jagged yellow streaks of light,
Of rumbling roars and rain that pelts the ground,
The creatures find their homes in hasty fright,
And craven birds Hnd warmth in hollows round:
But now, as if by magic's sweet refrain,
God waves his hand - the land is bright again.

THE ASSASSINATION OF A PRESIDENT
'r was a warm April day in the city of Caracas, and the President of
Venezuela, Delgado Chalbond, was leaving his country home for
the parliament buildings in the centre of Caracas. Chalbond kissed his
wife, patted his five year old son on the head, and climbed down the
stairs to the waiting black Cadillac where he greeted Gomez, his
Chauffeur, and then climbed into the car.
Gomez started the car, and they drove off down the lane. It was
a beautiful ride through the'outskirts of Caracas, and the beautiful
countryside reminded Chalbond of the day he had been a young boy
running through the fields with his many young friends.
As the Cadillac came to a bend in the lonely country road, a green
roadster swung around the corner and cut in front of them, blocking
the road completely. Immediately Gomez stopped the car and was about
to back up when another car appeared behind them, cutting them off
from the rear. Gomez jumped out of the car, a small black gun held
firmly in his hand. Immediately a shot resounded on the still air, and
Gomez was twirled back against the side of the car by the impact of
the bullet, which had struck his shoulder. Chalbond was petrified, and
could do nothing, for six men had appeared from two cars and now
stood at the doors of Chalbond's car, one clutching Gomez by the arm
and one holding a gun which was pointed directly at Chalbond.
A dark skinned man wearing a white hat and suit, opened the
door and seizing Chalbond by the arm, pulled him out of the car. "Let's
go", he said, and led Chalbond to the green roadster which stood in front
of the Cadillac. Chalbond climbed in and saw Gomez being helped into
the other car by two surly looking natives. The white clothed man who
seemed to be the leader started the car and sped off down the lane with
the other car following closely. Chalbond was in a state of deep despair,
for he knew this could mean only one thing, assassination, but he also
knew he could do nothing about it, for there was an ugly looking gun
stuck in his ribs, held there by a surly black who looked as if he wanted
to tear Chalbond limb from limb.
After a ride of about five miles, the two cars pulled up in front of
a large, newly built house which was apparently deserted and was situ-
ated on the outskirts of the city. Everyone got out of the cars, and
Chalbond and Gomez were pushed towards a driveway leading around
the side of the house. All at once Gomez broke away from the group
and made a dash across the street, but one of the men fired and Gomez
fell. a bullet hole in the side of his head. Then the men pulled Chalbond
around the side of the house and put twenty-seven bullets into him.
Cioniez was not killed, and he got to a house where he phoned the police
who soon caught the assassins. With the death of Chalbond, Venezuela
lost a good president.

NIY DAY AS A CADDY
NE morning last summer I was enjoying breakfast, wondering
what I could do to put in my day with a maximum of enjoyment,
a minimum of effort, and profitably, if possible. Suddenly the telephone
rang, and I was informed by one of my friends that there was a tourna-
ment at the Golf Club, and that I must hurry up, if I wanted a job as
caddy. Finishing my breakfast quickly, li hopped on my bicycle
and pedalled away as fast as possible to be one of the first on hand.
Fortunately I was one of the lucky ones, and when I say "lucky", I mean
just that, as in these days, with the little "go-carts",'or "bag boys", I
think they are called, that are used to push around the necessary golf
clubs, caddies are not much in demand.-The mechanical age has even
encroached on the few jobs open to us students to make a little extra
It was a lovely bright morning with only a few clouds in the sky,
and a light breeze, which was blowing straight down the fairway, made
it an ideal day for golf. The gentleman to whom I was assigned was a
tall, rather portly man, with Cas I found out laterj a quick temper. It
was amusing to see the different ways in which this foursome reacted
to their game. They were all playing to win, of course, as this was an
important tournament, but each one of them had a different attitude-
one was very nonchalant-another excited-the third very sure of him-
self, and my portly friend very quick to "explode" if the shot he played
did not come up to his expectations. Everything went all right for the
Hrst few holes, and then I noticed the skies were becoming very over-
cast, and it looked is if it might rain. Almost immediately it started. It
was one of those sudden, summer storms, and rained heavily for about
five minutes, and then stopped as quickly as it had started, after which
the sun shone brightly again. It was funny to see us scampering in all
directions, trying to Hnd some shelter, and finally crouching underneath
the bushes for protection.
This incident of the summer storm certainly didn't improve the
tempers of the contestants, and on the eighth hole when my man made a
putt, which was far from being successful, he completely lost his
temper and picked up the ball and threw it at me. Fortunately, he was
no better at pitching than he was at golf, and missed me by several feet.
but the ball went a great distance down the course, and being his caddy.
I was obliged to get it.
The action seemed to relieve his feelings and the remainder of the
game was played without incident, except for my having to replace a
few well dug turfs.
Thus ended my day as a caddy, which proved very profitable for
me, as my portly friend was very generous, no doubt for having thrown
the ball at me.
103 THE ASHBURIAN
ERGEANT jack Tolliver motioned his two companions to a halt and
then slumped on a moss covered log. He was a tall, dark man, with
the broad shoulders and slim waist of an athlete. His face was covered
with the beginnings of a beard, and his uniform was in an unkempt
condition. He slowly regarded the two survivors of his patrol, as they
lolled listlessly on the rain soaked ground. Murphy and jackson, he
thought, two men left out of a twenty man patrol.
"Sarge, what are our chances?" jackson asked.
"They will be a bit better if we keep going", he answered, as he
worked to his feet.
About an hour later the three men came to a halt on the bank of
a river. It was a swift flowing river, about five hundred yards across,
with high banks on both sides. These banks were slippery and gave the
river the appearance of a water filled trench. Then, at the top of the
opposite bank he saw it.
The boat, lying there in the open, attracted his eyes like a magnet.
Tolliver whispered excitedly, "Murphy, jackson look". They stared at
it with eyes wide open in amazement. Here was their salvation. Then
jackson broke the silence saying in his sarcastic way, "VV ow, if that
boat was over here, We'd be back to our lines in an hour. It's going to do
us a hell of a lot of good over there." "Shut up," said Tolliver softly,
"when it gets a little darker, we're going to have that boat". Are you
going to Hy after it Sarge?" jackson asked. "I'm going to swim," was the
"You can't swim across there jackf' Murphy said, "it's too rough.
Anyway there are evening patrols all along these banks. You'd be a
sitting duckf' Tolliver looked him in the eye and said, "There's no other
way. lYe'll be discovered if we stay here much longer." "How about
one of us going?" Murphy asked. "No, I used to swim in college before
I joined up, it's my job." Then he added quietly, "I'll leave in half an
hourf, They settled down restlessly to wait as every noise made them
start. Each of them was conscious of the enemy surrounding him.
Tolliver, breaking out in a sweat, hoped the other two would not see
that he was afraid. Silently they waited, each lost in his own thoughts.
After what seemed like hours, Tolliver rose and said, "Hell, I
guess it's dark enough." He quickly slipped out of his dirty uniform
and boots and started down the bank. Turning, he said, 4'If I'm not back
in two hours, you'd better find an evening patrol and try to surrender".
As he said it he knew that they would never give themselves up. Their
lives depended on his life, and they all knew it. If he was discovered,
they would he ferretted out in a matter of minutes. Tolliver uttered a
silent prayer and slid the rest of the way into the water. As he started
out with his strong racing crawl, he was tensed for a shot. Then he
THE ASHBURIAN 103
gradually relaxed into the rhythm of his swimming and concentrated
only on the opposite bank. Soon his feet touched the opposite shore. The
crossing had seemed to take but an instant.
The sergeant waded through the water and fell panting on the
shore. After a moments rest he started climbing the sandv batik with a
feeling of anticipation. He reached the top, and the shape of the boat
loomed before him in the darkness. He ran towards it with a feeling of
great joy in his heart. He reached it and stared at it with a stuniied,
amazed look. The bottom of the boat had been knocked out with rifle

ERIOCRACY is the way of life chosen by the XYestern XYorld. The
best examples of this system are Great Britain, United States and
Canada. In all these countries, Government is, in the words of Abraham
Lincoln, "of the people, by the people, and for the people". These
systems have come about slowly. Great Britain gained her freedom first,
by such legislation as the Magna Carta, the Petition of Rights, the Bill
of Rights, and the Habeas Corpus Act, all of which were brought about
after a great struggle for reform on the part of the masses. Both United
States and Canada modelled their constitutions on the British Cabinet
System. U.S.A. gained her freedom only after revolt against the mother
country. VVhen Canada reached the stage of confederation, the framers
of our constitution looked to both Great Britain and the U.S.A. for
models. United States seemed almost too democratic to Canada. some
Canadians feeling mob control was evidenced there. It was also felt that
the President, chosen in the heat of party politics. represented only a
minority group of the people. Thus Canada decided upon a Governor-
General, who would stand above party politics and would represent the
But in all three countries there was evidenced similar institutions.
Each had a leader, an appointed Upper House, and an elected Lower
House. In each the executive branch of the government was responsible
to the wishes of the Lower House in which sat the representatives of
the people. Thus, each may be said ot have responsible government or
government in the interests of the common people. Therefore it may
be said that in all these countries people are the government.
If the people are the rulers, it is clear that they must be intelligent
and well informed. To fulfill the aims of democracy for individual free-
dom, equality of opportunity. security and adequate standards of living
for all, certain requirements are necessary. The greatest of these being
an adequate svstem of education to ensure that the govermnent will be
able to express the will of an intelligent and well informed people.
104 THE ASI-IBURIAN
Ifnfortunately, democracy was challenged by authoritarian gov-
ernment. VVhy? The wealthy are often fearful of losing their power.
There is a levelling of society in democracy. To those who do not wish
this, state control seems necessary, especially in a modern industrial
world. It, then, is difficult to have both individual freedom and state
control. Thus Naziism and Facism for a time held sway over Germany
Systems like Socialism and Communism, supposedly placing power
in the hands of the masses and trying to overthrow all Capital, appealed
to such countries as Russia and her satellites. Especially in uneducated
countries, these systems appealed to the populace, and in the countries
of Europe, Asia and Africa they are making headway.
Thus the world is divided into two ideologies: Democracy with its
Christian ideas and Communism with its anti-Christian creed.
XVhat of the future? Wfhich system will win out? Is there any way
both systems can co-exist?
XV e of the VVestern VVorld do not think so. Freedom of speech, of
religion, of thought seem to be the necessary ingredients for life. For
man cannot pursue happiness and enjoy life unless he can do it in his
own way. There must be equal opportunity for everyone and this there
can only be when man can think for himself and act as his conscience
dictates. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the keynote to
Oh how I love the April rain
So bountiful in store,
It makes the grass grow green again,
And flowers bloom once more.
The leaves shoot upward quickly too,
On trees that once were bare,
Gnce more I see the birds aloft
Circling through all the air.
The rivers rise and overflow,
The streams and lakes expand,
XVith rain that makes all nature glow
Throughout our vast rich land.
But once again when fall returns,
The leaves must leave their place,
And once again my heart will yearn
For spring to show its face.

HE train stood at the bottom of the mountain grade. waiting for the
signal which would release it from the siding on which it was held,
like some giant animal in a corral. T
The locomotive, a large electric one, with its many wheels,
like some huge pre-historic centipede, hummed to itself, making an
unnaturally regular noise which in its harsh buzzing ilualitv contrasted
with the intermittent chirping of the crickets and the croaking of the
frogs in the wayside ditches. The fifty-one cars of the train, weather-
worn and dirty, ugly in their dissimilarity, emitted the peculiar creaks
and ticking sounds of the contraction caused in their parts by the
There were people moving about the scene, getting ready for the
departure. The switch man was nearing his post-he would open the gate
and let the animal free. The conductor, leaving the station with his
orders, walked briskly up towards the head of the train. The engineer
jumped down to meet him, pulling out his watch as he landed. lt was
the latter who would control the machine which, using power gleaned
from some some unknown far off water-fall, would pull some three
thousand tons twenty miles up a ten percent grade in three quarters of
Conferences completed, the conductor returned to his palace at the
tail, and the engineer mounted his steed. The glaring red eye of the
signal worked and came back green, a remotely controlled lock on the
switch bar came out and the switchman hauled the handle 'round with a
screech of metal on metal. Air streamed into the break line and did its
work on each car. The brake shoes came back unwillingly and the train
was free. The raucous blare of the air horn cut across and silenced the
music of nature's creatures.
The engineer pushed his controller handle around: power rushed
down from the gleaming copper wire overhead, down through the rust
red pantograph to do work and return spent to the rails below. XYith
a low pitched growl the locomotive drew the slack out of the train. with
a machine gun like chatter which echoed through the valley. Red Hame
appeared on the wire above, where the power was sucked from it
greedily by the locomotive.
A new note came into being, the rolling rattling of steel wheels on
steel rails, as the cars lurched onward onto the main line. The inevitable
Hat wheels thumped past. and the tail lights flickered a useless farewell
at the switchman's back as he closed the switch after the last car.
SPRING ONCE MORE
Yea! 'tis Spring, the Willows blossom,
And the birds are back again,
Yea! old winter banish'd curtly,
To bow out to springtime's reign.
Here along the path I wander,
Drinking of the God's sublime,
Can I think of such a season
IVhich can rival young springtime?
In the Spring a world looks out on
Tend'rer leaves a greener green,
In the Spring the land seems brighter
Polish'd by the sun's bright gleam.
In the Spring the earth is wash'd by
Thund'ring clouds in April's rain,
Making mires in suburb byways
IVhich the Walker jumps in vain.
But at once the clouds all vanish
And the flowers gleam so gay,
Once again the World shines proudly
In the merry month of May.

This is Volume 1 of the junior Asbbznfiavz. It is edited and pro-
duced by the boys themselves, so those readers who are not fellow
students will please understand that this is our first attempt, and there
are bound to be faults. It is to be deplored that some of the keen
volunteers who showed such enthusiasm when the junior School House-
mister announced that we were to have a complete section of the
school magazine to ourselves, did not persevere. Perhaps they might
have been able to contribute the very article, story, or photograph that
would have set a very high standard in the Hrst issue.
IYe feel sure that you will agree that we should have a section of
our own. Make your criticism constructive. In this way it will be
welcomed. So, until Volume 2. au revoir. See you in September!

The junior Football Team played three matches. two against
Rockcliffe Park Public School, and one against St. Patricks College
Midgets. The honours were even against Rockclitfe, the visitors winning
one match and the school the return match. St. Pat's proved too good
for the juniors. and the score is one best not mentioned in junior
football circles. Rice, a new boy, was Captain, and his reward for his
hard work was the awarding of his colours. Others to gain colours
were Heenan and Alurphy ll. plus another newcomer. lflmslie.
Heenan and Rice represented the junior Team at the Schools
Annual Football Dinner. They were able to report a very successful
night, the report of which will be found in the senior section.

The Junior Soccer Team, under the Captaincy and Vice Captaincy
of Powell I and Fidler respectively had its best season for years. We
played two games away, now firmly established "annuals", The first
was at Sedbergh and the second at Selwyn House, Montreal. These
schools both came to Ashbury to play return matches and the results
were tallied about right up until Christmas. In both the games against
Sedhergh the score was a tie. Against Selwyn I-Iouse we won the home
match and lost when we went to Montreal.
It is a matter of concern to the enthusiastic team that soccer
is not recognized as a major sport. Fortunately, the concern is not
enough to hurt the team spirit, and even the coach, Xlr. Spencer, was
satisfied at the end of the season.
lfour boys were awarded colours. The Captain and Vice-Captain,

There was a very solemn air about the Junior Cricket team when
they returned from the Bishop's trip. Everybody connected with the
team was hoping for an undefeated season, and if only the match at
Bishops had gone according to plan, we would have been reporting
some sort of record. However, Jim Sutherland, the very competent
captain reminded the team that it had been a good season and gave
some encouragement to the next season's Under 16 Coach. Our first
two victories were at home, against Sedbergh and Bishop's. The first
trip away was to Sedbergh, and to end the season, the long-awaited
and much-talked-of trip to Lennoxville.
It was a good season, bringing to light some keen juniors to lighten
the load of our outstanding Junior Team player, Jeremy Powell. Four
colours were awarded at the final Readover, Jim Sutherland, the Captain,
Jeremy Powell, his Vice Captain, Bray, who showed great promise
in his first season as wicket-keeper, and Ian Stuart. One other player
among a good team worthy of special mention is Eric Rice, who
should develop into a good fast bowler.

oRAt IIIB had two trips as a form. the first to see the Halt llisnev
movie, "Vanishing Prairie", which was votetl .1 first rate edueation.il
movie that was fun, and the second trip when the l-'orm said bon vovage
to john Booth before he left on his wonderful excursion to lfngland' and
the Continent. The afternoon started with a trip to the movies, lohn
having the choice, finishing with hamburgers and milk shakes at fioltl-
steins, the latter made possible through the generositv uf the father uf
the Form Monitor, Michael Copeland. lllB just "took over" the cafe,
and the father of said Monitor is thanked once again. The onlv person
who did not enjoy the trip was the Form Masterf Mr. Speneeri. Unfor-
tunately it rained, and trying to get 22 boys home without repercussions
was not easy. The guest of honor realised this when he called to sav
good bye! Good luck, john, and we look forward to seeing vou iii
September, when we hope to hear all about your travels. T i

A TOUR OF OTTAXYA COURTS AND THE HOUSE
N Miednesday 16th May form Transitus went for a tour of
the Magistrates Court on Elgin Street, the Supreme Court on
VVellington Street and the House of Commons.
At the Magistrates Court we saw the trial of some minor offence
as a result of which the man was fined two hundred dollars and had
his car confiscated for failing to stop when he had crashed into another
After lunch we went to the Supreme Court of Canada. It is a
beautiful building facing lYellington Street. Here we heard a trial
in which the Crown claimed an acre of land from a man who had
bought an island a few years ago. The acre claimed bv the Crown
had been formed bv silt which had collected to add another acre
to the original island.. lYhile in the Supreme Court Building we visited
the Court Library where we saw many old and valuable books.
Upon leaving the Court we went to the House of Commons
in the Parliament Buildings. Although we didn't stay very long we
found it verv interesting to see the Government of Canada at work
and to listen to the debate that was in progress.
Following the Debate we went to the top of the Peace Tower.
From here there is a marvellous view of Ottawa and the surrounding
district. The clock in the tower is immense and we were surprised to
End that it is run by a very small motor. -Editor

OUR VISIT T0 THE E. B. EDDY COMPANY
N XYednesday, October 2nd, Transitus left Ashbury for a trip
to the B. Eddy Company. VVe left school at 9.00 a.m. and
arrived at 9.40 a.m.
XYhen we arrived we were met by Nlr. Bradley, who was to
be our escort. The first thing we saw, was the giant woodpile there.
Then we saw the logs being taken in and stripped of their bark
by a special machine. After that the logs are taken to some huge
rotating cylinder and worked.
Then the logs are taken to a large grinding machine, where they
are ground into small pieces. These pieces are then put into huge
containers where they are left for eight or nine hours to boil and
become pulp. They are boiled with some kind of chemical. After
this the pulp is put onto a long row of rollers where it is dried and
eventually becomes paper. The paper is rolled onto a steel bar at the
end and rolls of paper nearly a mile long are made.
XYe are all very grateful to Mr. Polk for this very interesting trip.
A TRIP TO CANADA PACKERS.
Unlike our other trips this Trip lasted an afternoon and not a
complete day. This trip was in my opiigion the most looked forward
to trip of the year. Right after lunch we assembled in our class-room.
The trip we were about to embark on was a trip to the Canada Packers
plant in Hull.
lYe got into four taxies and in about twenty minutes arrived
at the plant. The first thing we were shown was one of the newest
devices in packing, this gadget packs cellophane around frankfurts and
puts them into boxes. Many of us were surprised at the number of cans
and boxes of jam and meat.
Then we were divided into two parties and getting into elevators
we went to the Hoor of the plant where the pigs were being killed.
As the pig comes through a door a man slips around his hind
leg a chain which hoists him up into the air and he is carried along
a pulley. As it slows down his neck is slit, and the pulley speeds up.
I will not go any further on the journey of a slaughtered pig because
it is almost too hard to describe. He is of course cut up and smoked
and put into a freezer. This whole operation is very very fast.
All during this time four or live inspectors see that everything
is done right. Pigs are not the only things killed, cows, sheep, and
goats are killed too.
This trip in my mind was one of the most thrilling things I
have ever seen. COOK-TTLTTISTIIIS.

135 THE ASI-IBURIAN
THE VALLEY OF TIME
As I lay there in the grass watching over my sheep and gazing
down into the valley, I could see the glorious Roman legions marching
ever forward, their spear tips glistening in the sun, their trumpets
sounding, everywhere the splendour of Rome. But they return not as
a glorious army. Their trumpets sound no more. All Hee in disorder,
for as a mighty eagle who loses his strength and becomes prey for the
smaller fowl, Rome has declined. There is chaos everywhere and the
dark smoke rises and blacks everything from view.
As the smoke clears, I see a church in the valley and a castle on
the hill. I heard a sound behind me and as I turned I saw a knight in
armour. In one hand was a great stout spear and in the other his
shield. "Boy", said he, "VVhere is the castle of Sir John?"
"I am sorry sir, but l do not know," was my reply.
"I have good news," said the knight. "XVilliam has defeated
Harold at Hastings and Britain is now his, tell that to your Saxon
friends." IVith this the knight spurred his horse and rode off over
I plucked a blade of grass and chewed as I looked down over
the valley. Suddenly the air grew cool, dark clouds filled the sky.
I heard the distant rumble of thunder . . It was raining now, raining
hard. The wind whistled in the trees and it was dark. The lightning
stretched its fingers to the earth lighting up my whole surroundings.
It was then that I saw far out at sea what I knew to be a wreck. It
was just for a split second while the dazzling white light remained
that I saw the ship. I did not see her again. It was only after the skies
had calmed their fury and the storm had ceased that I saw a few
remains of the unfortunate vessel. As I looked more closely I saw a
man climbing the hill in my direction. VV hen he reached me he greeted
me in a foreign tongue, and as I listened to his incomprehensible
blabber I heard the word "Armada" repeated again and again. I-Ie
realized that despite his frantic efforts he could not make me under-
stand, so taking up his bag, he strode off down the hill.
As I followed my sheep to the other side of the hill I met a
"Have you a bite to eat, Laddie?" he asked. "I've lost me Com-
I otfercd him a loaf of bread and asked where he was from.
"l'm straight from Waterloo, laddief' he answered. "XYe finished
that Napoleon for good this time."
THE ASHBURIAN 137
Suddenly l heard the scream of a jet. XYhere was I? Oh yes,
back in the Atomic Age. Back under an apple tree on the top of a
hill in the ancient county of Norfolk. l must have fallen asleep. l
picked myself up and strolled off down the hill with my history
book under one arm. ' '

So sweet is the spring,
"Tis the loveliest thing,
XYhen spring is here,
Then summer is near.
Skipping ropes are out,
Everybody is about,
Babies' prams are around,
Snakes glide on the ground.
Bears are out of their dens,
Birds scream o'er moors and fens
Foxes slink around slyly,
Big birds Hy around highly.
The trees do loudly creak,
Chickens for dinner foxes seek,
XYinter has gone past,
And spring came so fast,
The doves are all cooing,
And frogs are a-wooing,
Oh! spring is here,
So summer is near.

128 THE ASHBURIAN
THE LAUNCHING OF THE S.S. EMPRESS OF ENGLAND
was fortunate in being the only Canadian boy present at the
launching of the Empress of England. There was a special train
which took us from London to Newcastle-on-Tyne. The train stopped
at about 2.30 p.m. XVe all got out and got onto a bus which took us
to the Vickers-Armstrong yard. VVe went down to the shipyard
The launching took place at 3.00 p.m. As Lady Eden took the
stand, everyone started to cheer. She was presented with a bouquet.
The minister said a prayer. Lady Eden gave the Benediction, and then
pushed the lever which released the champagne bottle which christened
the ship, crashing against her bow. She said these words, "I christen
this ship Empress of England. May God bless her and all who sail in
her." Then the ship slid down the ways into the water and bowed to
JOHN BOOTH, III-B
He likes to chirp as well as play,
And like most birds he's very gay,
A box of seeds is all he needs,
And he likes to play with lots of beads.
He's learning now to talk quite well,
And he's always playing with his bell,
And in his cage there is a swing,
And his bell goes ding-a-ling-a-ling.

MY TRIP TO ROME
'i' was a beautiful VVednesday afternoon when we sailed out of
New York Harbour. The sun was shining and the sea gulls were
fiying around the city of high walls. The whistle blew good bye
to New York as the Queen Mary started me on my trip to Europe.
Two days had gone by and we had not seen a cloud in the sky.
The temperature was sixty-five to seventy. The weather was fine.
VVe landed at Southampton and then we left for Boulogne in
France. lVe did not sleep that night in Boulogne but went on to a
little town called Ham. The food was wonderful at the hotel where
A few days later we arrived at Lyons and saw all the beautiful
cathedrals. Ever since we had left Boulogne the skv had not shown
any sign of rain. i
About a day later we caught sight of the Alps, and we were soon
going through them in a train. lt was very dark inside the tunnels
and very cold.
THE ASHBURIAN 129
A day had passed and the scenery had changed. XYe did not see
any more men walking around in their slippers carrying a three
foot loaf of bread to the vineyards.
A day later we saw bits of the Italian Riviera with hundreds
of sail boats coasting along off the shore in the cool breeze. The first
town we came to on the Riviera was Genoa with many palin trees
on the sides of the roads and the beautiful black and white seagulls
Two days later we arrived in Pisa and the first thing I noticed
was the Leaning Tower and the beautiful buildings beside it. XYe did
not stay in Pisa long because we wanted to go Florence to see all
the art galleries.
From Florence we went to Rome. During the train trip the rain
came down so hard and the lightning was so strong that they had to
stop the train. The next day was beautiful. The first thing we did
was to go and see the Catacombs where all the Christians hid from
the Roman soldiers. IVe also saw St. Peter's, and while we were in
St. Peter's Square we saw the Pope, because it was Good Friday. XYe
saw many other things before we started our long journey home.

MY LITTLE AIRPLANE
My little airplane likes to Hy
IVhere the white clouds float on high,
IV here the birds their strong wings try
A way up there in the deep blue sky.
Sometimes it goes right out of sight
Rising up in the sun's bright light
Sometimes its goes very low
That is when the cold winds blow.
But when winter comes at last
Then we know our fun is past,
So I put my plane away
To wait until another day.
SANDY IYALKER, II-A
COMING TO CANADA
IVhen I came here from England.
Some words I had to learn,
A "sweetie" is a candy,
A boy is just a "guy"
I think life is "dandy"
AVhen hello is only "hi".
