THE ASHBURIAN 9
Hell, like the fellow says, another year, another dollar. :Xt any
rate, some two hundred and fifty of us have, even in spite of ourselves,
gained something, maybe not a dollar but something, surely. What?
lYhat are we after?
The attempt to answer that question is a dangerous undertaking.
One will almost inevitably sound either lyrically idealistic, which is
humiliating, or tiresomely trite, which is worse. Nevertheless, here
Superficially we are after a piece of paper which will entitle us
to seek another and perhaps another piece of paper, which will eventu-
ally lead us to myriad pieces of paper bearing on one side the head of
our sovereign. These, we hope, will carry us to green pastures in
swift and subtle motor cars and in luxury liners of air and sea.
F undamentally, however, we are after a commodity to which these
indulgences may or may not contribute but which they certainly do
not constitute: the sense of satisfaction, fulhlment, which can only be
reached through education. For if man can count himself more for-
tunate than the tadpole, then he can surely thank that tyrannical but
benevolent schoolmaster, education, for his more blessed estate.
lVe are, in short, after some vehicle which will carry us through
our good years even more excitingly than a 300 H.P. sports model,
and a consolation more dignified than a crutch on which to hobble
into old age.
At the risk of oversimpliiication, we shall say that the ultimate
object of education is enjoyment. Let us seek it with a will.
On the morning of September 11th we once again assembled for
the opening of the School year. Alr. Perry welcomed all boys, who
again outnumbered last year's enrollment. The Headmaster especially
welcomed the new boys. some of whom represented the 3rd generation
of a family of Ashburians.
The following day we were addressed by Nlr. R. TY. Southam,
the Chairman of the Board of Governors. He gave a short speech.
mentioning the new building and the record numbers. He then requested
the Headmaster to grant us a half holiday.
CHANGES OF STAFF
This year again, there were some additions to the Teaching Staff.
Nlr. Alacintyre, a Queen's Scholar, came to take care of Form IV and
also to help coach in football, skiing and swimming. Mr. Gander, also
from Queens, was an addition to the junior Staff. Mr. Vetter, from
Carleton, proved also to be an excellent coach in football, hockey and
track and held. Xlr. VVells also joined the junior Teaching Staff. He
is an old boy, and took care of the Manual Training department. To
fill the place of Nlrs. Clarke as junior Alatron came Aliss Vaughan.
from England. As an addition to the administrative department came
.Xliss Caldwell. to join the secretarial ranks.
This year's entertainment was up to its usual high standard. The
various seasonal parties at Halloween and Christmas were a great
success as were the excellently organized house dances. The decorating
and technical crews are to be congratulated on the excellent job they
did. Xlr. Sibley continued with the Saturday evening movies. which
were very nnich worthwhile. We owe him and the camera operators
our hearty thanks. Une of the special feature-films was "Alf, Sun"
THE ASHBURIAN 11
which was both instructive and amusing. IYe wish to thank here all
those who have contributed to the entertainment during the past year.
H ICA LTH
Our one and only Florence Nightingale, Miss Bray informs us
that throughout the year the health has been exceptionally good.
There were no epidemics and the infirmary was never crowded. The
whole school was inoculated against poliomyelitis, and for any
serious illnesses Dr. C. K. Rowan-Legg was always on hand.
To our deep regret we heard from the Ileadmaster at the final
Readover that several members of the staff are leaving us. Mr. C. T.
Ruddick, who taught Latin and Greek, has been summoned to serve in
the ranks of Uncle Sam's Army, while Mr. A. B. M'ells is going to
pursue the career of aviator. Miss Vaughan, the junior Matron is return-
ing to England. Me wish to express our thanks for the services they
rendered to the school.
The School wishes to express its gratitude to the donors of the
following gifts: An autographed copy of a book entitled "Son of
the Northn, presented by its author, Dr. Charles Camsell, C.M.G.,
LL.D., F.R.S.C., painting by G. Ctto of the Toronto Materfront,
presented by the graduating class, sketch of the School by Adrian
Daintry, presented by Camp Kawabi.
It may be said that the gift of these pictures brings the Ashbury
Art Collection up to a total of ten.
BUILDING AND IMPROVEMENT
At this time we are optimistically looking forward to the addition
of a second storey to Argyle. This structure, if it materializes.
will provide much of the space so urgently needed by our growing
numbers-assembly hall, stage, and classrooms.
Thanks to the generous donations of Cso farl one hundred and
fifty friends of the School, this ambition seems well on its way to ful-

12 THE ASI-IBURIAN
Notable events this year in connection with the Chapel have included
several of outstanding interest.
The annual Christmas Candlelight Service was presented by the
School Choir on the last Sunday of the Autumn Term. Under the able
tutelage of our Organist, Mr. L. H. Sibley, assisted by Mr. C. G. Ben-
nett, the choir presented some of the less well-known but beautiful
Christmas Carols. The order of service also provided ample opportunity
for the assembled congregation to join in the more familiar Hymns and
Carols of the season.
On Thursday, March 14th., the Lord Bishop of the Diocese, the
Rt. Rev. E. S. Reed, M.A., D.D., Confirmed the following Candidates
in the Chapel: Roderick Carr-Harris, Williani Colls, Peter Edwards,
Peter Gillean, Victor Gnaedinger, Hamnet Hill, Rodney Howland,
Bjorn Jacobsen, Charles Kennedy, Robert Lackey, john Leech, john
Letch, Michael MacKinnon, Terence Millar, Anthony Moore, Grant
Moore, Robert Moore, Peter O'Hara, jeremy Powell, Peter Rowan-
Legg, VVilliam Rowley, john VVood, and Guy Morrison.
Our Chapel Organ, which had served us well for over thirty years,
was completely rebuilt during the XVinter Term. The consequent
improvement in the clarity and quality of the tone and response of the
mechanism has fully justified the considerable expense involved. XV ith
a crowded Chapel every morning for the daily services the addition of
at least two more stops to the Organ is almost a necessity, if the instru-
ment is to balance the hearty singing of the congregation.
The Annual Prefects' Service was once again ably conducted. A
forthright and interesting sermon based on the School Motto was
preached by the Captain of the School, G. S. M. VVoollcombe5 the
Oflice of Morning Prayer was read by B. K. Hillary and the Lesson
by B. C. Seed. TV. H. Birbeck again played the Organ.
Thanks are due to all the following, whose help in various ways
has contributed to the eflicient rendering of the services: Mr. Sibley,
Organist and Choirmaster, and his assistants Mr. Snelgrove and Mr.
Bennett, the Choir, Chapel Clerks, VV. H. Birbeck, ll itil I. A. XV. Berridge,
Brodhead l, the Servers, Fascio, Sparling, Sarkis, Noel-Bentley, Brod-
head Il, Detchon and Cameron. 1
It is gratifying to report that the chief Sunday service at 11.00
a.m. has been well and consistently attended by visitors throughout
the School year.
THE ASHBURI.-IN 13
G.-xxx our warmest thanks are due to this organization who have
worked so strenuously and usefully in the interests of the School.
Their activities this vegu' included: A Bingo and Fun Night. A Cake
Sale, and ll Used Clothing Sale. lfroni the proceeds of these functions
the following benefits were provided: A generous sum for bursaries,
ll new School Hug, new furniture for the prefects' connnon rooni, drapes
for the librarv, n prize for the best ltept dorinitorv Cwon bv the
denizens of Arnold's roonil.
In view of all this we are tempted to purnplirnse the old saw: A
scl1ool's best friend is its mothers' guild.

THE .4sH1sU1e1.4N 15
Science Trips began this year on january 12th when Xlr. Snelgrove
accompanied a group through the Gatineau Power Plant. This has
become a pleasant, instructive, annual excursion for the junior
Alatriculation Physics Group.
On Saturday, january 26th, a group of Senior students with Xlr.
Sibley made a tour through Computing Devices of Canada. Since
our last visit to this plant, there has been the addition of a new Giant
Computor. On this computor, which would fill an ordinary room, much
detailed technical work can be performed. XYe also saw the usual
computing devices, with the new Transistors for radios and electronic
The next tour took us to the National Research Council on the
Montreal Road. Here we visited Building Research, where experimental
work is being done on new types of construction including pre-stressed
concrete blocks and beams. The Cold Lab here was quite interesting.
lVe then adjourned to the Applied Chemistry Building where we saw
Radioactive materials being used as well as new methods for producing
rubber. Finally we went to the Radio and Electrical Engineering,
where we saw the Under Hater Television, new work being done on
Radar, and new devices being developed in Medical Electronics, in-
cluding a new type of electrically controlled clothing for the new
"cold" heart operations.
The Annual Students' Night of the Chemical Institute of Canada
was held on February 22nd at the Research Council. A Demonstration
lecture was given by Prof. K. Laidler, assisted by Dr. Papee, both of
the University of Ottawa. The topic of the Lecture was "Fast
Chemistry", and spectacular demonstrations on factors influencing the
rates of reactions, including the use of liquid oxygen, hydrogen and
other materials were used, with many controlled explosions. The eve-
ning was closed with the usual refreshments.
For our next Tour, Mr. Sibley arranged an all-day excursion to
the National Research Council, which took place on Nlonday, April
8th. IVe left at 9.15 a.m., arriving at the Alontreal Road Labs. at 9.30
a.m. Dr. D. C. NIacPhail gave us a short address, and then we started
on our way. Our first stop was at Low Speed Aerodynamics, with the
horizontal and vertical wind tunnels. From here we went over to the
jet Engine Laboratory to see the work done there. We also saw an
excellent Film here. We then had a look at Low Temperature work,
finally visiting the Hydraulics and Ship Laboratory. In the latter, we
saw part of the Alodel of the St. Lawrence Seaway, with also a model of
the new breakwater being devised for a I-Iarbour in Newfoundland.
16 THE ASHBURIAN
VVe had a ride up the long experimental ship canal, to examine tests on
ships. By then it was time to adjourn for lunch at Sussex Street. After
lunch we visited Plant Physiology, Organic Spectrochemistry, Cosmic
Rays and General Spectroscopy. All of these sections proved interesting,
particularly the thought that Cosmic Rays are constantly arriving at
the earth and being computed. The work on Spectroscopy was par-
ticularly interesting because it applied to our Physics Course of study.
For our final trip of the year We were very fortunate in being
given permission to tour Canada's Atomic Energy Research In-
stallation at Deep River. This Highlight to the Science year was
brightened by good Weather, and we made the trip on the last day of
the Easter Break on April 10th. VVe arrived at the Project at 11.00 a.m.
and were greeted by Mr. C. Kennedy. Security cards and radiation
exposure samples were given to us and we passed through the Guard
House. VVe were taken to the Public Relations and Library Building
where we Were introduced to the Reactor via an intricate model as
well as a very fascinating Lecture by Dr. D. A. Keys, one of the pioneers
of Canada's Atomic development, and a former University teacher
of Mr. Sibley. After this lecture and fine luncheon, we went over to
the N.R.X. Reactor. This is the basic tool of research at this time. VV e
walked on the top of this giant reactor realising that inside was Uranium
and Heavy Water, with a controlled fission Reaction going on. The
equipment placed around the Reactor was quite fantastic, all to gain
knowledge for peaceful uses. We also saw the port holes where the
Cobalt was made radioactive for the Cobalt Bomb. We were taken
through the Control Room with its many measuring devices. Our next
place of call was "The Cave" where We looked through a window one
and one half feet thick to see radioactive materials. Finally we went
over to see the Van der Graaf Generator which generates many
millions of volts. Coming out of this area we were checked for radiation,
nearly losing Hiney in the process, and then We took our leave of Dr.
Keys and Mr. Kennedy.
In conclusion, we owe a deep debt of appreciation to Mr. XVard
and the Staff of the Research Council, and to all others, including Mr.
Sibley who made the trips possible.
SENIOR SCIENCE TRIP T0 MCDNTREAL
mc yearly climax to the various trips, the Senior Science Trip,
h this year took us to Montreal. Having left the school at a quarter
to six on XVcdncsday, the 27th of February, after a quick dinner, we
arrived in Montreal at about ten thirty. After checking in at the
Y.M.C.A., we went out for a late supper, and thence to bed.

At Shell Oil Refinery
On Thursday, our first visit was to the Shell Oil Refinery at
Montreal East where we went by bus, courtesy of Shell. Heref this
Company refines about 55,000 barrels of oil per day. Their crude oil
supply comes in by pipe line from Portland, Maine. XYe were first
given an explanation of all the processes involved. We were then given
helmets, and set out to tour the plant. An outstanding feature of the
rehnery was the fact that all the processes were remotely controlled
from central control rooms, bristling with gauges, recorders, and
switches. We visited the Topping Plant where the easy first fractions
of the crude oil are removed. Then we went to the Vacuum Flashing
unit where pitch is a product, and from there to the giant "Cat
Cracker", kept at 900OF, which breaks up the heavy oil molecules into
smaller ones. We then saw the rest of the Refinery bv bus, and also
caught a glimpse of the destruction caused by the fire Cand consequent
explosionl of a few months ago. We then had an excellent lunch. and
after thanking our host, Mr. Pangman, went by bus to our next plant,
the Sherwin Williams Company.
In this modern factory it was amazing to hear that varnishes are
still made in an age old fashion by experts. XYe also found out that
there is a synthetic way to make varnish from Phthalic .-Xnhydride.
VVe saw through the complete Varnish Plant, noting that all fumes are
removed before wastes go off into the air. We were then shown
through the Paint factory with the manv laboratories for control and
research. All of these paints are emulsions using latex, resins and oil
as their base. In the control laboratories fascinating tests are carried
on, e.g., in the fadometer and brine baths. All colours of paints are
13' THE ASI-IBURIAN
made here, even to special specihcations. At the conclusion of the
tour we had refreshments and a question period when we asked various
questions of the many people who accompanied us.
We had dinner back at the Y.Xl.C.A. that night, and then set out
for the St. Ann's .Xlill of Dominion Textile Company. In small groups,
each led by one of our hosts, we followed the gradual transformation
of Raw Cotton to the end product, cotton thread. The endless
rows of ingenious machines, with their lightning fast attendants, were
fascinating and interesting to watch. The Cotton bales for this Plant
arrive from the Southern United States. We concluded the visit in
the oflice, where we discussed the various operations of the Plant.
And that concluded our first busy day. He returned to the HY" for
a much needed sleep.
Friday, we were up early and after breakfast we were off to the
Dominion Oilcloth and Linoleum Company, where we were met at
the door by Mr. H. N. Blakeney, an Old Boy. This enormous factory
will always be remembered by all who were on this tour, not only for
its interesting machines, but also for its many stairs. XVe watched
machines mixing the ingredients, oils and resins, from the United States,
with Batu gum from Sumatra, the rolling presses, machines making
coloured patterns in the linoleum, and also the showrooms where all the
products were on display. One of the most interesting features here
was the designing room where all new patterns are designed, and also
the section where the new forms are made in wood and then put on
rollers. We were offered lunch here and then took our leave from
Mr. Blakeney and proceeded to the Bell Telephone Company of
At the "Bell" we were introduced to a variety of communication
systems, such as telephones, telegraph, telexes, T.V., and Radio. The
telephone centres were awe inspiring with their thousands of clicking,
winking electronic gadgets, which will soon make possible the system of
intercity dialling. As we gradually worked our way up we saw the
control installations where defects can be located anywhere along the
communication lines, the telexes, typing away all by themselves, the
Television relaying and selection apparatus. Then we paused in the
huge Cafeteria for question period and refreshments, and then we were
of to the Xluseum, where we could trace the history of the Telephone
system. A working model of a microwave transmitter was demon-
strated to ns, as was an experimental T.V. Camera with telephone so
that it is possible to see the person who called on the telephone.
Another interesting gadget was a pocket size transmitter, which was
an experimental radio station. lts tinv size was due to the extensive use
of transistors in its construction. Deeply impressed with the com-
plexity and ingenuity of the Telephone system, we returned to the
Y.Xl.C..-X. for late supper and a free evening..
THE ASHBURIAN 19
Early Saturday morning, we were off to NlcGill University.
First we spent some time in the Library, where we admired the wonder-
ful old volumes and manuscripts. Then we adjourned to the Redpath
Museum to obtain an impression of thc variety of fossils, rocks and
animals, with some attempt at learning something of the background
of the history of the earth we live on. The rest of the morning was
spent in the Natural Sciences Building making a tour of the Geology
and Nlineralurgy Departments, led by Professor Clarke, Head of the
Department of Geology, and Prof. Xlaclfwen, Head of the Department
of Metallurgy. XYe also met our old friend Dr. XY. H. Hatcher, the
Director of the Building.
For lunch we were invited to the LaSalle Hotel bv Xlr. Fascio,
who treated us to a most excellent and memorable lunch, complete
with special Alaska cake with the inscription "Ashbury Science '57".
We were very grateful for this excellent repast.
Our last visit was to the Canadian Aviation lflectronics Company.
where the main feature was a number of Flight Simulators. which
were in various stages of construction. This company also does much
work in Fire Control devices for Aeroplanes.
Thus ended a very interesting and instructive trip. and most of us
returned to Ashbury with Nlr. Sibley, to whom we owe our deep
gratitude for organizing and leading the trip. XYith him this year
were: Cumming, Hayley, jones, Paz Castillo, Springer, Barkun,
Lackey, Newman, Ross. Sutherland I, and Van Schelle. Our thanks
also to the many wonderful people in all the places we visited who gave
us their time to show us around to see their respective plants.
This interesting series of talks so happily inaugurated last vear was
carried on again on the Wednesday afternoons of this year. We were
fortunate again to hear from a number of distinguished representatives
of various professions who gave the Senior boys most helpful in-
formation on the advantages. disadvantages and requirements of their

THE .-1SHBL'Rl.-IN 21
Once again, this liaster, Xlr.
jobling arranged and conducted
a holiday trip to Bermuda. Ac-
companying him were Stan Bar-
kun, Dave lflam, .lohn Heeney,
Bob Xloore and Tonv Sugden.
He had, thanks to iis 'former as-
sociations there, been able to secure temporary possession of Port's
Island, a small island off Hamilton Sound.
The boys niet with good weather, and enjoyed themselves im-
mensely in swimming and other aquatic sports. They made a tour
of the island's places of interest, and then, to be sure not to miss
anything, rented bicycles to tour the island by themselves. There
were always many activities going on in connection with the islands
annual "College XVeekl'. Several soccer and rugger matches featuring
teams from Harvard, Dartmouth and Wiestern Canada were attended.
One of the highlights of the trip was a day's excursion to the Town of
St. George, organized exclusively for the college groups visiting
Bermuda. On this excursion many American friends were made, and
everyone had a thoroughly good time.
Sincere thanks must be accorded to Hr. jobling for making this
trip so successful, and we all hope that his future trips will be as
enjoyable as this one has been.
HE annual tri-school debate was conducted this year on February
22nd. Bishop's College School, Lennoxville and Lower Canada
College, Montreal, were the debaters, while Ashbury played host.
Chairman-1. C. Chaniard of Ashbury.
Adjudicators-Father O'Connor, St. Patricks College, Professor
Kesterton, Carleton College, and A. B. Belcher, Ashbury.
The Subject-"Resolved that Great Britain and France were justi-
fied in their recent course of action at Suez".
The Bishop's Team, which consisted of Hanley and Bell, supported
the affirmative side of the discussion, while Harvey and Boke, of L.C.C.
supported the negative.
The logic of the latter pair was, in the opinion of the judges,
slightly superior to that of their opponents, and L.C.C. was thus accord-
22 THE ASHBURIAN
ed the victory. Both sides of the issue were well presented, but the tide
was turned in favour of the winners by the rebuttal speech by Harvey,
whose charges against the cause of Britain and France in their joint
action at Suez were inadequately refuted by Hanley of Bishop's in his
Father O'Connor announced the judges' decision and compli-
mented both teams on their debating techniques.
POETRY READING CONTEST
HE poetry reading, held in the School Chapel on Sunday, May 5th
again brought out a gratifying number of contestants. Each was
required to read three numbers: a set piece, a selection of his own
choosing, and a "sight" piece.
Mr. Hornyansky of the English Department at Carleton College,
was kind enough to act as adjudicator and gave the boys a most help-
ful and interesting address in his summing up of their respective per-
formances. Upon request he also read a short lyric by his own pen.
The winners were: Senior: Hutcheon, Intermediates: Rowe,
juniors: Campbell I.
PUBLIC SPEAKING CDNTEST
HE contest was held in Rhodes Hall on Sunday, April 28th and
produced a number of interesting and well thought out speeches.
Chamard and Gale were the competitors in the Senior category, Noel-
Bentley and Rowe, Intermediates, and Kennedy of the juniors.
The judges, Messrs. D. L. Polk and A. B. Belcher had difficulty
in selecting a winner from the excellent speeches by Chamard C"Alu-
minium in Canadawl and Gale C"The Educational Problemvj but
finally awarded the palm to the latter by virtue of the ease and Huency
of his technique.
Rowe chose as his topic "The Human Heart", Noel-Bentley
"l",dueation in the Soviet Union", and Kennedy, the sole competitor
from the junior School, spoke on the Hawaiian Islands.
The judges commended all five contestants for their interest and
enthusiasm in preparing speeches and for their creditable performances
in the competition.
.Xsliliury College was this year host to the Nlathematics Committee
of the lleadinasters' Association of Independent Schools. Represented
were: Bishop Ridley College, llillheld School, Appleby College,
THE .-1 SHI? L'Rl.Al .Y
'N I 'fy
Xlr. Snelgrove, Dr. MacDonald, Xlr. Powell, Dr. Lowe.
Upper Canada College, St. Andrews College, Pickering College, The
Grove, Lakelield, Sedbergh School, and Bishops College School.
The Committee was indeed fortunate to welcome as guest speakers
Dr. Percy Lowe, Head of the Xlathematics Department at RNIC, and
Dr. Keith XlacDonald, Director of Low Temperature Research
Division at NRC and Head of the Department of Physics at Ottawa
University. Dr. Lowe, from his extensive knowledge of the standards
in secondary education of all 10 provinces, described the preparation
needed, not only in Xlathematics but also in Science, for a successful
assault on the curriculum of the Service Colleges. He left us with the
impression that the educational standards in Ontario were as good as
any in the Dominion, but suggested that there was some danger that
standards might be going down while the marks seemed to be going up.
He mentioned also that there had been a reduction in the proportion of
candidates for the Service Colleges from the Independent Schools,
this might be due in part to the present R.O.T.P. requirement. He
stressed that precision in the use of language was vitally important for
success in Mathematics and Science, and suggested that teachers them-
selves were not always guiltless in this regard.
Dr. MacDonald declared that in his experience many students. even
in honours work, did not seem these days to know their fundamentals
- units, operations, methods - at all thoroughly, consequently they
were always looking for help. In other words, they did not seem to
24 THE ASHBURIAN
be certain or definite about anything. Like Dr. Lowe, he also stressed
the importance of a thorough understanding of the language.
The delegates were guests of the Headmaster at a reception before
luncheon in Symington Hall. After lunch there was a short business
meeting during which Mr. G. G. Steel of Hillfield School was
unanimously elected President for the coming year.
After the meeting the group proceeded to the National Research
Council where, under the guidance of Dr. Kohr, several active re-
search projects including cosmic ray investigation, low temperature
techniques, thermometer calibration, and sub-microscopic biology
work were demonstrated.
It was the unanimous opinion of the delegates that the whole day
proved to be a most rewarding experience.
At a conference of the Teachers of English at Independent
Schools, held at Hilliield School, Hamilton, on Easter Monday, Ash-
buryis Department of English was represented by Mr. Belcher and
the Rev. E. G. Kettleborough.
At this meeting thirteen representatives from nine Independent
Schools were in attendance, with Mr. N. D. Lewis of Hillfield pre-
siding as chairman, and to him our thanks are extended.
The morning assembly was addressed by Dr. VVilds of McMaster
University. VVithout attempting a detailed analysis in this report, we
may say that his sensitive appreciation of the colour, flavour, sound
and power of words, and his hints as to how this appreciation might
be conveyed by teacher to pupil were stimulating in the extreme.
In the afternoon the speaker was Mr. Nichols, Vice-President and
publisher of the Hamilton Spectator. It was interesting to note that
Mr. Nichols' practical, newspaper man's approach paralleled the
academic attitude of Professor VVilds when he stressed the necessity for
truth, strength and economy of words. If there is a moral to be drawn
from this it might be: the music of the spheres and the music of the
circulation are less than worlds apart.
ln May of this year, the representatives of several schools were
invited to visit R.M.C., C.A.S.C., and Corps Schools at Kingston.
The purpose of the visit was that the representatives should be
given a concrete picture of the type of training provided by the
Army under R.O.T.P. and S.A.P., also an idea of the material ad-
vantages orfered to the candidates.
THE ASHBURIAN 25
Thanks to the efficient organization of Lt. Col. A. C. Brett, A.A.G.
and to a number of other oflicers assisting, this purpose was admirably
fulfilled. Some six schools, including Ashbury, were represented at
This year the classes in Nlusic Appreciation have been rather novel.
Instead of the usual listening to music, discussing what had been plaved
and becoming familiar with the lives of the com iosers we had each boy
, Q I l Q Q .
do a project on what was presented in class. The results were most
interesting. There was imagination and artistic ability shown in most
:- a . .
of the work. The boys who did not draw well wrote essays and found
pictures to put in their books. In forms Transitus III.-X, IIIB classes we
covered the lives of Schumann, Brahms, Liszt, Berlioz, Beethoven and
Handel. The Form prizes were given to those who did the best
projects and who obtained the highest marks on their written test.
They are listed elsewhere in this magazine.
In Form II the project was on the instruments of the orchestra and
the results can be seen in gaily coloured charts now adorning the
walls of the Music Room.
Form I classes were kept busy with Rhythm band, singing
games and stories of music.
VVe are looking forward to next year with the ever-present
challenge of stimulating young minds to things beautiful.
In addition to the projects noted above, those boys who are
interested in music are given an opportunity to attend whatever con-
certs and recitals may be available.
This year a number of the boys heard a series of performances by
the Ottawa Philharmonic Orchestra, the Tremblay Concerts and several
piano and violin recitals.

Cadet Nlajor XYoollcombe, marched past the reviewing stand, first in
column and then in column of route. The Corps then advanced in
Review Order and the Flag Party marched off.
Immediately following this, the Junior Gym Team gave a demon-
stration of physical training and drill. After the generous applause
had died away, the newly-formed school band showed what they had
learned during the year. This band, even though new, gave an excel-
lent performance, and it is hoped that they will continue to improve
in future years.
The mock battle was, as always, greatly enjoyed by all. This
part of the afternoon consisted of live very good demonstrations:
Field-craft, signals, first-aid, L.Al.G., and rifle.
Next came the Senior Gym Squad with their line demonstration
of difficult box and bar work, climaxed by a human pyramid. Another
highlight, and one which was eagerly awaited by the spectators, was
the Honour Guard, whose intricate manoeuvers were very line indeed.
Made up of twelve students dressed in the scarlet tunics and bear-skins

which the Head was pleased to grant.

9 THE ASHBURIAN
Our lst team this season kept up the fine record which it had set
in previous years, and despite one unfortunate loss to Bishop's, main-
tained its outstanding level of play. This loss was our first in three years
and over a four-year period we have won 25 while losing only four.
A great deal of credit for our success must go to C. B. "Tiny"
Hermann's splendid coaching, thanks is also due to his noble assistant, A.
B. XVells. Each year Mr. Hermann seems to be able to take about 25
boys, just back from indolent summer vacations and whip them into a
well-trained, crack squad which has become the terror of Ottawa
Valley and Eastern Quebec school teams. VVe must also thank the
school in general for the fine support which they have given the team
ASHBURY vs. ARNPRIOR HIGH SCHOOL
Friday, 21st Sept. - VVon 7-1
The first game of the season-we played this one in Arnprior. Both
sides played hard, but the ball-handling was careless and there were
many fumbles. Hillary ran for the Ashbury T.D. in the second quarter
and then added the convert himself. The lone Arnprior point came on
a third-quarter rouge.
ASHBURY vs. ARNPRIOR HIGH SCHOOL
Friday, 28th Sept. - VVon 27-0
The return game with Arnprior started in bright sunshine, but
before long it began to rain. The scoring was opened by Simpson, and
a few minutes later Charboneau tallied to put Ashbury ahead by two
T.D.s. Late in the lst half, Charboneau scored again on a spectacular
97-yard pass and run play. Simpson added another major in the 3rd
frame. Hillary converted 3 of the 4 to leave the final score Ashbury

ASHBURY vs. BISHOP'S
Saturday, 6th Oct. - Lost 33-14
Although Ashbury played hard, we really could not get going
against the hard driving Bishop's team. Our points came on a touchdown
by Simpson and a pair of converts and a major by Hillary.
ASHBURY vs. ALBERT COLLEGE
Saturday, 20th Oct. - XVon 33-7
The highly touted Albert team turned out to be somewhat over-
rated. Hillary and Charboneau both scored T.Ds. in the lst quarter,
Hillary and Simpson during the 2nd, Albert rallied late in the half, but
Draper plunged over for the clincher near the end of the game.

ASHBIIRY vs. L.C.C.
Both teams were playing at less than full strength, but L.C.C.,
the Senior "BW Champions ot Montreal, could not keep up the pace.
Although they scored the opening point on a rouge, they never again
came close to leading. Hugh Simpson, having a field day, ripped loose
for 3 touchdowns, Seed and Charboneau notched one each before
half-time. Berridge scored in the last quarter, while Hillary came up
with 4 conversions.

Played in a spirit of great friendliness, this game produced some

cannot be classified as outstanding. there was a definite improvement
over last year. Of six games played, two were wins over Lindenlea and
Fisher Park. The team spirit was heightened by the enlisting of two
new coaches. Alr. Alacintyre and Xlr. Vetter, both of whom did an
excellent job. XYC will all agree that we know considerably more foot-
ball as a result of their coaching. and are extremely grateful for their

THE FooTBALL DINNER
On Friday, November 30th, the annual football dinner was held
in the School Dining Hall, after the showing of a football film entitled
"Big Four Highlights of l955".

i' the begining of the 1956-57 hockey season all those concerned
with the first team were looking forward to a great year. lloxy-
ever. these expectations were not fulfilled as the team. although lack-
adaisical at moments. had the misfortune of having the worst possible
luck throughout the season. A combination of had luck. injuries. and
sloppy defensive work left the team with a rather poor record of one
win and one tie in eleven games.
The thanks of the team are due to Xlr. Yetter for his fine coaching
throughout the year.

put in by Bill llirheck. who successfully managed the team during the

was the anchorinan of the defence. A solid checker and ex-
perienced playmaker, he fulfilled his duties as a captain well.

His hard shooting and shiftiness around the net made him the

accurate passer. lYorked well with Molloy and Seed. Plays
his position well, but must back-check more vigorously.

College and the Laiiversity of Ottawa took part. The members of our
victorious team were: Ross Southam. john Rowan-Legg. Dave Rhodes.
john Heeney and Yic Rivers. Rowan-Legg. our cross-country star. ran
the four-mile course in 38 minutes. and finished well ahead of am'
competition. He also led the team in the downhill race. while the Cao-

Unfortunately the annual trip to Lake Placid, normally the year's
first meet was cancelled due to lack of snow.
The Sedbergh meet unfortunately conflicted with the Quebec
divisional Championship. As a result, some of our men could not at-
tend, and although the remaining people tried hard, they could not
avoid a defeat by a handsome number of points. Sedbergh did very
well, and deserved the victory. The Ashburians participating were:
jerry Robinson, john Heeney, Gordon Gale, Steve XVoollcombe and
On Saturday, the 23rd of February the team, this time including
Captain Ross Southam, john Rowan-Legg, john Heeney, Dave Rhodes,

down to Bishop's for the Triangle Ski Meet. One of the Highlights of
the skiing season, this is a competition between Ashbury, Bishop's and
L.C.C. Rowan-Legg again proved his worth in the rugged, four-mile
cross-country, and other members of the team also acquired high scores.
However, despite their courageous and excellent performances, they
had to yield the First place to Bishop's, who, with their score of 1655
points topped Ashbury by 34 points. L.C.C. came third.
On the whole the team had an exciting and active season. Almost
every week the names of team members appeared in the sports pages
of the local papers, for many of them participated in individual races at
Camp Fortune. All acknowledge gratefully that Mr. Macintyre, the
coach, played no small part in helping them to achieve their best

On Friday, March 8th., the gym was filled with parents and
guests, who had come to witness the boxing finals. This was the
spectacular culmination of the previous boxing elimination fights, in
which many had participated. The number of finalists was narrowed
down to twenty-two, eleven of which were to become winners of the
eagerly desired trophies. The boxers were very well matched, as was
shown hy the many split decisions by the judges. The boxing was
generally good. although the younger boys showed some lack of ex-
perience. But they made up for it in courage and determination.

A. S. Robertson lConnaughtl vs. ll. CQ. Polk lflonnaughtl
This rapidlv moving "light" of the Iwo midgets was. if not the

bit of dancing around. sometimes falling on each other. but in the
end Polk managed to come out on top.

bl. gl. Powell CXYoollcombel vs. R. C. llowland lfionnaughtl

examining Powells battered nose.
Bom' No. 4: junior Bantamweight.

Bout No. 7: Senior Heavyweight CFauquier Challenge Cupj.
B. K. Hillary QConnaughtJ vs. G. S. M. XYoollcombe CVVoollcombeJ.
The feature of the night, the heavy-weight battle of the seniors
has always been spectacular. This year was no exception. The two
rivals fought with skill and determination, and both got a good
number of punches away. Bruce's speed against Steve's perseverance
was certainly a sight to see. Both were in excellent condition and the
judges were confronted with a difficult decision which came out in
favour of Steve lVoollcombe.
Bout N0. 8: junior Featherweight C.-Xshbury College Cupb.
D. P. Blaine ClVoollcombeJ vs. C. R. Davidson CVVoollcombeJ.

G. R. Gamble OYoollcombeJ vs. A. D. Machflillan CConnaughtJ.
An excellent fight, marked by careful and skilful boxing. Both

R. Xl. S. Powell QlYoollcombeJ vs. D. K. Flam C.-Xlexanderj.

The last fight of the evening. This was a good ending to the

jones, with his lightning attacks managed to get the better of O'Hara.
Xlaior lYoods declared jones the winner during the second round on

Legg II ran a fast race and finish-
ed without a second runner in sight. NlacLaren and McDonnell I were
respectively second and third.
The Intermediates were led by Elmslie, Sutherland and NlcLaurin
respectively, iirst, second and third. From among their ranks some
excellent future runners for the senior race may very well emerge.
The most spectacular, and the last to start, was the race of the
seniors. Hillary had the lead from the beginning, with Rowan-Legg l
close on his heels. They never lost sight of each other throughout the
race, and both pressed on with great determination and courage. Bruce
held on to his first position, followed by Rowan-Legg I and Hiney.
So hard had Rowan-Legg been pressing on that Hillary, at the finish,
collapsed from exhaustion.
Nlost of the runners managed to make a point for their house.
Those not running served as markers along the course, which was laid
out by Mr. Brain. Our congratulations on the faultless organization!

i Largely due to the cadet-inspection, tennis got oil to a late start
again this year. However, as soon as possible, practice was under way
at the Rideau and Rockcliffe tennis-courts. This year the held was
divided into two squads, the A squad, consisting of future champions,
and the B squad, of amateurs.
lfroin the A squad, the tennis team, made up of Seed. Capt. Draper,
' Hain l, lfattal I, and Southain, was chosen to represent Ashbury against
1 Northwood School from Lake Placid here at Ottawa. On Saturday,
I Xlai' the 25th, the annual tournament was played at the Rideau Courts.
E 'lihe laclt of practice of our teain soon showed up and Northwood
1 took the lead in the singles -l-I, Fattal l inanaging to edge out Landers

Ht: snow disappeared unusually earlv this vear and. in spite of
one or two cancelled practice matches at the start of the schedule,
a reasonably full list of fixtures was plaved. The season ended with
our customarv game with Defence QC. on the Saturdav after Closing
Day. i I
As in 1956, we were hosts to Brockville CC. who managed to
defeat us in an incompleted 2-innings match on the basis of the first
innings. We were in a winning position with 7 of their Znd innings
wickets down for 23 when time ran out. In addition to this moral
victory we had 2 decisive wins over New Edinburgh CC. and Deep
River CC. bv 5 and 6 wickets respectively and seemed headed for a
more than usually successful season. Ielowever. in the return match
against Deep River on their picturesque home ground, the batting
failed chiedv through a lack of enterprise and this seemed to be the
.V , ..-. '
03 THE ASHBURIAN
trouble for almost the rest of the season. lt was distressingly evident
in the return match against B.C.S. when. having bowled them out for
a mere 35 in their second innings, we could only scratch together 40
runs off somewhat loose bowling. A further 25 would have gained us
possession of the Hitchman Trophy!
For the first time in many a year the Old Boys managed to win the
annual game with the lst Xl. This was due in no small measure to
the all-round performance of Macdonald, D.S. who collided neatly
with Alr. XYells while attempting the same catch. flt was grassed,
just like the would-be catcher.J The following Saturday, we had an
easy win over a somewhat weakened Defence XI by 5 wickets to
bring the season to a close.
It would be invidious to single out any one boy for special com-
mendation although the bowling of Arnold and Rhodes was reliable
throughout and gave the batsmen plenty of chance to have an equal
share in the glory of a win. The fielding was almost always reliable and
on occasion brilliant, with sensational catches frequently taken. MacKin-
non was easily the most improved player. considering all departments of
the game, and jones' keeping to Arnold was uniformly good. not an
easy type of bowling to handle on our hard wicket.
First Xl colours were awarded to: Sutherland, Reid. Arnold,
Jones, MacKinnon, and Rhodes.
UNDER 16 CRICKET
Hrs year the Under 16 Field was in the happy position of having
more than enough keen cricketers to make up a team. For this
reason the competition for places was quite strong and the resultant
team turned in some excellent performances. ln all, four games were
played in which we halved the honours with both Sedbergh School
The season started well with a good win at home against Sedbergh.
Our next game was against B.C.S. at Lennoxville and after a most
exciting tussle we managed to beat them for the First time in several
years. Unfortunately this was the end of our victories as both B.C.S.
and Sedbergh came back to gain revenge in their return games.
Nevertheless it was a most encouraging season and there is plenty of
talent coming along which points to an even better season next year.
Outstanding amongst a good bunch were Chamard, Powell l,
Twaddle l and Farrugia. Chamard captained the team well and was
ably assisted by the fine batting and bowling of both Powell I and
Twaddle l. To Farrugia came the honour of receiving the Xl.C.C.
bat for the best all-round improvement in batting.
Colours:-Cihainard. Powell l, Twaddle l.

lexander House has arrived at last. Since its start iiye years ago the
house has had a struggle to make headway against the strength of
XYoolleomhe House and Connaught House. This year. however. things
have been vastly different and Alexander Ilouse not only won the covet-
ed Wilson Shield but were successful in all three major sports on the
way. Quite a remarkable feat. Notables in this fine year were: Draper.
Berridge. Xlacliinnon l. jones. Rowan-Legg I and Southam I.

combe. put up some solid performances to taltc first place in the

Winners of the XYilson Shield last year. Connaught Ilouse did not
fare at all well in competition this year. winning only the cross-country.
04 THE ASHBURIAN
However, this in itself was quite an achievement, for Connaught House
had individual winners in no less than three of the four categories of
runners. Bruce Hillary, in winning the Senior event for the third
successive vear, set a personal record that should stand for quite some
time. Stand-outs in Connaught House activities were:-Hillarv, Reid I,

THE SCI-1001. DANCE
The formal this year, on Friday, April 12, was up to its usual
high standard, thanks to the excellent organization of the Prefects.
Over 80 couples came to the Country Club. which for the last two
years has been the scene of our formal. Music was provided by
the band of M'ilf Stebner. This wonderful band helped greatly to
make the evening the success it was. According to some of the
veterans, this was the best formal for a good many years. The guests
were greeted on arrival by the receiving line consisting of the Head-
master and Mrs. Perry, with the School Captain, Steve Moollcombe,
and Miss Pamela Metcalf.
The various trophies and cups won by the Ashbury teams during
the year served as fitting decorations. The food, as usual provided
by the Country Club, was plentiful and appetizing. Our thanks and
congratulations to the Prefects for their excellent work!

THE OLD BOY'S SECTION
ttmua: The annual Old Boys' Reunion was held on the weekend
of October 27th-28th. As the many who were present will attest,
it was, as usual, a very happy and successful occasion.
After Registration in Argyle, the Old Boys and their guests
crowded into the gymnasium for the excellent buffet luncheon which
had been provided by the Nlothers' Guild.
The Corporation of Ashbury College held its Annual Meeting
in Rhodes Hall at 2:00 P.NI. One of the major pieces of business was
the election of the Board of Governors. S. IRVIN, 1928, is the new
Chairman, and C. G. GALE, 1934, was elected Vice-Chairman.
A further development from this meeting was the formation of
an Old Boys' Committee within the Corporation. This group, which is
to be called the Committee of Ten, will replace the separate Old Boys'
Associations which have existed in the past and will operate as a
central organization from the School with representatives in Montreal,
Toronto, and perhaps the VVest. Membership at present is G. D.
HUGHSON, 1941, Committee Member on the Board of Governors,
P. VV. NIACLAREN, 1943, President, L. FLECK, 1947, Vice-
President, B. P. NIORDY, 1941, Secretary, and XV. SLATTERY,
1952, Treasurer. Other members are H. B. MOFFATT, 1943, D. XY.
H. GAMBLE, 1954, and P. NEXYCOMBE, 1941. D. L. Polk
is executive secretary. lt is felt that the coordination of Old Boys'
activities which can result from working out of the School office will
be a valuable development.
Mr. and Mrs. Perry entertained at Ashbury House, and the day's
activities were concluded with a Supper Dance held at the Royal
Ottawa Golf Club.
On Sunday morning at 11:00 AAI. in the School Chapel was held
the Old Boys' Chapel Serice. The Service was conducted by the Rev.

Toronto The following Saturday saw 20 Old Boys from the Toronto
area meet at the Park Plaza to talk over old times and to renew
acquaintances. This is the first time that a meeting has been held in
Toronto and the Headmaster was very pleased at the interest which
appears to be growing in this city. The guiding hand behind the
Reunion was that of Alf. R. G. Devine. former member of the stan'
at Ashbury and a devoted. loyal supporter of the School. Short

OLD BOYS' GAMES
FOOTBALL The game was played on November 7th in the
morning, and was a close one, the School winning by a touchdown,
21-12. The Old Boys played excellent football and about 25 of your
younger representatives dressed for the game. lt was enough to produce
a two platoon system. Xlr. Perry provided refreshments for the former
stars of the Ashbury gridiron after the game.
HOCKEY Thanks to the pre-game organization of Andy
XYHLLS, 1955, and Don BROKYN, 1952, twenty-five Old Boys put on
skates for the game against the School at the Alinto on Alarch 18th, while
another 12 or 15 turned out to watch. Despite the coaching of S.
IRYIN, 1928, and the presence of last year's effective Hrst line -
Grant, lrvin and XYiddrington - the Old Boys could not score, and
the game ended with a 2-0 win for the School. However, everyone got
onto the ice and it was a line game and happy reunion for everyone.
Nlr. Perry served refreshements at Ashbury House afterwards.
CRICKET Your athletic activities this year ended on a more
successful note. A strong team of Old Boys took the Held against
Ashbury and defeated our First Cricket Team by about 25 runs.
This is the first Old Boys' cricket win in about ten years. Once again
there was a fine turn-out, about 15 Old Boys taking part.

burians who turned up. Refreshments were first served in Nlr. Perrv's
garden, and after signing the Register. the guests trooped into Svming-
ton Hall for a line meal.
Graham C. Nlelnnes. llead of the Commonwealth Division of the

thanked by Peter Neweombe, and presented with a handsome pair of
gold eulf links bv the Committee.
The Headmaster gave a brief survey of the progress of the Build-
ing and linproveinent Fund Drive. He stated that if donations to date

gramme, he was most pleased and that next fall would Find the addition
to Argyle complete.

CAPTAIN OF THE SCHOOL
XYOOLLCOMBE, STEVE-'4Wby, man, be doth
bestride the narrow
'world like a Colossus"
A great deal is expected from a leader who is looked to to set the
standard for other prefects and the student body in general.
This year Steve won the Heavyweight Boxing Title and was a member
of the First Football Team, he certainly set an example as an athlete.
As Cadet Major and C.O. of the Cadet Corps he worked hard to assist
all concemed to develop the high eHiciency that was shown by
the Corps this year.
Steve is not only a good student, but a loyal, enthusiastic and active
member in all school activities. All of us wish Steve, after ten years
as a fine Ashburian, the very best of luck at Toronto University
CAPTAIN OF THE BOARDERS
BRIAN SEED-"Scenery is fine - but human nature
Brian, or as he is usually called, "Seedy", has distinguished himself
in everything he has done this year. The hero of Maniwaki Woman-
hood, he was one of the star half-backs on the First Football
team, and as vice-captain of the hockey team he was the high scorer
and a top playmaker. As well as earning his colours in both these
sports, he was captain of the tennis team again this year. Military-wise,
Brian was our dashing Guard Commander, and is reputed to have been
seen carrying his trusty sword about in weird and mysterious places.
No slouch academically, Brian has done well in his studies, and hopes
to enter engineering at Carleton next year. We know that through his
steady, hard work he will do well, and we wish him the best of
luck in the future.
CAPTAIN or THE DAY BOYS
BRUCE I-IINEY-4'Lost is our freedom, When 'we
submit to fwonzen"
We were all pleased to sec that Bruce was made a prefect last Sep-
tember in his tenth year at Ashbury, and he has capably filled the
position. Bruce claims the distinction of being the only misogynist in
tlge prefect body, but we feel that the time is near when he will see
t e ig rt.
In the field of sports he was the busy captain of the second
Football Team and in the winter was on this year's great "net-ball"
team. Bruce was a tower of strength in the Cadet Corps, fulfilling the
varied positions of Bren Gun and Field Craft instructor par excel ence,
Adjutant, and Flag Bearer in the inspection. This summer Bmce is
headed for the West. but intends to return to Ashbury in September.
See you then, Bruce.
STAN BARKUN-Seldom found "Barleun up the
Stan, the Man, who has been with the school for three years, was ap-
pointed to the prefect body at Christmas time. Since then he has ably
and efficiently carried out the various prefect's duties. including taking
part in a Gentile Church Service by reading the Lesson. Stan's 220
ooiinds of solid - ? helped make up the sturdy front wall on the
football ti-am, and he was a strong guard for the undefeated basketball
tcalm. Mr. Powell's early moming cricket club had an honorary member
in this fine player. who helped the cricket team attain a good season.
Slain will be leaving us this year. and going to Boston and we wish
him lots of luck in the future.
THE ASHBURIAN 77
MIKE BFRRIDGE-"1 .1111 saddest 'when I sing. So are
those that hear me. They are
sadder eceu than 1"
Much to eva-ryone's pleasure. Mike was made a prefect at Christmas. and
was fairly quiet until the plans for the Prefects Formal were made.
lt seems as if he had just acquired a new johnson "Seahorse", and
everyone wanted to see it. As Captain of the First Hockey Team, Mike
worked hard and achieved success. and much of this year's success
in Football can be credited to Mikt-'s kicking and running. In the Spring
term, Mike spent most of his time writing letters to his johnson
dealer in Hudson. Quebec. As to the future. Michael, we wish you the
best of luck. and if you return, the school will surely benefit from
your presenceg if not. may you have good luck in all your endeavours.
HUGH BILLINGS-"Nothing great was ever achiev-
ed 'ZL'ff1JOIlf enthusiasm"
Hugh has Bnished his fourth year at Ashbury College. this year amidst
the smoke of Prefect's Common Room. he has concientiously filled
his duties as a prefect. Athletically. "Hughbly" played first football
and second hockey. "Ear-phones" Hugh was the N.C.O. in charge
of the signals group, and he and his men were of great help in the
Mock Battle. Since the Inspection he has been trying to get out of
the habit of finishing off everything he says by "over", or "out". Hughis
plans for next year are uncertain. but we suspect that this summer
he will follow his practice of jaunting down to Florida to soak in
sun. VVhether you return to Ashbury or go elsewhere next year. best
wishes go with you, Hugh.
BILL DRAPER-"They roll and rzmzble, They turn
and tumble As pigges do in 11 poke"
Bill was made a prefect at Christmas time. and since then has never
ceased to amuse us with his weird stories and his practical iokes.
As quarterback of the first football squad, he called the team to a
fine season with only one loss. Bill also played first team hockey. was
on the tennis team, and captained the victorious Alexander House.
As the fire-breathing commander of No. 3 Platoon. Lieutenant Draper
did a fine job of brushing up the recruit cadets in their drill. Next year
Bill's loud' voice will cease to make an impact on our little dehnquents,
as he hopes to enter the real estate business upon graduation. With
him go our best wishes.
BRUCE HILL.-XRY-"All 7lIt'17Ikl7Id loves a lover"
Bruce. the gay lover. has accomplished a great deal, in more ways
than one, in his four years at Ashbury. In the field of athletics he is
an all-rounder. As Captain of the first football team, he won the
Most Valuable Player Trophy. and in hockey won his First Colours
for the third straight year. Bruce's other achievements in sports -in-
cluded coming first in the cross-country race lit nearlv killed himl
and the bestringcraft trophy in boxing. Lieutenant Hillary ably led
his No. 1 Platoon in the Inspection. although for some strange reason
he prefers the I.'.S.A.F. to the Canadian Army Cadets. Next year
Bruce hopes to take Physical Education at Springfield. and end up
a gym teacher. laundryman. or just a plain devoted husband. VVhat
ever it is. best wishes go with you. Bruce.
BOB LACKEY-"The born, the b07'7I, the lusty born,
Is not L1 Thing to laugh or scorn"
Bob has been with us for three years. During this time he has made
an abundance of friends amongst those from far and wide who
attended here. This is due to his quiet ways and readiness to
help others. He is our newest prefect this year, having been made
one at Easter. He has played first team football and this year Captain
of basketball, and as Captain of the latter he led the team to its first
undefeated season. He is also the organizer of our new school band,
which under his constant supervision and instruction has improved
greatly throughout the year. Well, Bob will be coming back again
next year so, until then, lots of happiness.
FREDERICK ALLEN REID-"Heap Smoke N0 Fire"
Frederick Allen Reid: or more commonly known Freddy has been
with us as a member of the Prefect body since September, and has
carried out his duties as any loyal prefect would. He played first
football under Tiny and was a strong contributor to the second line.
He weathered many a snow storm to earn a berth on the elite ski
team. In the world of Cricket, our vice-capt. had a rather jolly good
season by helping reduce Bishop's winning score to a minimum. In
the social world, Fred plays the field, but he is usually associated
with a s-s-s-special cricket fan. If all goes well, and he pulls through
his finals in scholarly fashion, we may expect to hear Fred's author-
itative voice around next year.
VIC RIVERS-MOWV the water and ofuer the sea and
over the lame to Cli7tl7'li6,,
Victor, or "Vic" has this year become well known throughout the
school taking part as he has m several different activities. His fame
has also spread through the Ottawa district ski-circles, since Vic is
a fine all round competitor. In Football he was a sticky-fingered
first string end, and in track he is a keen long-distance man. Vic,
being quite a socialite, edited Ashbury's social column in the Citizen's
Campus Corner each Saturday, and in the Cadet Corps, he did a
great job in training the kiddies in the Junior Corps to march well.
Academically speaking, he has triumphed with the honour of being the
only prefect not having to write his final exams, and his carefreeness
has not ceased to annoy the less fortunate ones. Vic fills the job of
a prefect admirably, and hopes to give it another crack next year,
when he returns after a summer Hcherchezing la femme."
SUTHERLAND-f'Em', Drink, and be Merry, for
tomorrofw fwe diefi'
"Tubby" has been with the school for eight years. This year he was
successful in all three major sports. As a lineman fwhat else?l, a
defenseman, and as captain of the first cricket eleven. "Tub" has
been captain of several cricket teams, and this year showed his ability
in all our games. In the corps he was the Quartermaster Sergeant,
and handled everything smoothly and efficiently from his dugout
behind the senior common room. Despite the few corns from the one
time he marched, flnspection Dayl, he didn't grumble too much. Our
best wishes for a good summer, "Tub", and we hope to see you
again next year.

High School studying as hard as ever!
Stu was a first year student who had to overcoine serious difficulties
to complete his year. Due to a serious and lengthy illness he missed

livened our history class in no small way. He is another Carleton
Hugh, a new boy in six-B was a tremendous addition to our hockey
and football teams. In our final and sensational football game against
Bishop's one could very easily say that he was one of the chief
contributors to our victory. In hockey he was a spirited and sports-
manlike player. Since he is leaving us, we wish him and his lively
M.G. the best of luck in the years to come.

THE ASHBURIAN 55
t the Readover, on the morning of june Sth the Headmaster ex-
pressed general satisfaction with the School Year that was ended.
He congratulated those who had achieved success in their academic
work and exhorted the unsuccessful to make a more determined effort
Looking back over his seven years as Headmaster he felt that this
year had been one of the most gratifying. Sincerity in academics had
been well maintained, conduct, with very few exceptions, had been
courteous and restrained, games had been played with vigour, good
sportsmanship, and a fair share of success.
As one of the "highlights" of the year he mentioned the successful
work of the Cadet Corps culminating as it had in a fine performance on
Inspection Day. In this connection he commended the recent addition
to the Corps of a life and drum band. He also expressed his warmest
thanks to Mr. Rees for the fine work in the training of the Corps.
Commenting on the physical health of the school throughout the
year, he congratulated the nurse matrons, Kliss Bray and Xliss Vaughan
on the fact that there had been no outbreak of measles, chicken pox,
influenza, or any other epidemic that the flesh of youth is heir to.
In thanking the Staff for their year's work, the Headmaster spoke
regretfully of the departure of three if its members - Xliss Vaughan,
Mr. Ruddick and Mr. VVells: Nliss Vaughan, the nurse-matron of the
junior School, who has so faithfully and sympathetically tended the
young and reluctant, Mr. Ruddick who came to us from Haverford and
has succeeded in reinstituting the teaching of Greek in the School, and
Mr. XVells, a former Head Boy of Ashbury, who has given most
successful instruction both in the classroom and on the playing fields.
Colours and awards were then distributed - for Cadet Corps,
Games, and House Activities and the ceremony was concluded by the
Headmaster's farewells and good wishes for a happy holiday.
he annual sports took place once again on the morning of closing
day, which this vear fell on Friday. 7th. june. For once the
weatheridid not appear to be on our side, for rain was still falling as late
as thirtv minutes before starting time. Fortunately, however, the rain
ceased and we were able to carry out the programme under damp but
not hampering conditions.
The outstanding feature of the sports this year was undoubtedly the
excellent standard shown in throwing events, in which no less than four
,fn THE ASHBURIAN
records were shattered. Throwing the cricket ball drew many con-
testants this year and both the junior and Intermediate marks were well
beaten. In the junior event Reiskind won with a fine throw of 81 yds.
2 ft. 10 ins., beating the old mark by some 5 yds. In the Intermediate
event Leroy also added several yards to the old record, with a throw
of 96 yds. 0 ft. 1 in. The Senior event was won in fine style by
Arnold, with an excellent throw of 106 yds. 2 ft. 7 ins.-although this
did not break any records. Arnold, however, was even more successful
in the other throwing events, of Discus and javelin, as he set new marks
in both these events. In throwing the Discus the record was pushed
up to 110 ft. -1 ins. and in the javelin event he pulled out a Hne throw of
165 ft. 225 ins. to break the existing record by over 15 ft. Another
successful Senior was Tony Sugden, who set two new records as an
Intermediate last year and repeated the process as a Senior this year.
In the 880 yds. he won, easing up, in 2 mins. 15.6 secs. and in the Long
jump he became the first Ashbury boy to clear 20 ft., with a jump of
just that distance. Both Arnold and Sugden have another year or two
to go at Ashbury, which should signify more records for the future.
The mothers' race was won in fine style by Mrs. Tyler, who got
back on the winning trail after retiring for one year. The Old Boys'
race featured four "young" old boys and was won by S. Irvin, last
year's school senior champion.
House honours in the sports this year were captured by VVooll-
combe House who literally swamped all the opposition and finished up
the morning by taking first place in both the Senior and junior House
Thanks are again in order for the fine work put in by groundsman
Ted Marshall and the eflicient assistance of all Track and Field officials.

ANKING heavily on divine goodwill, we decided to Haunt the fore-
casters and the lowering skies and to organize for an outdoor
closing ceremony. XYe won.
After a leaving service in the chapel at 2.-I5 P.M. attended by the
graduating students with their parents and friends and conducted by
the School Chaplain, the Rev. E. G. Kettleborough, we assembled in
the South Quadrangle for closing exercises.
Mr. S. Irvin, chairman of the School's board of governors,
welcomed the guests and called upon the captain of the School, G. S. M.
VVoollcombe to deliver the Valedictorv.
The Headmaster, Mr. R. H. Perry, then made his report on the
School activities and accomplishments for the past year and observed

The Chairman introduced and welcomed the guest speaker, F.
Cyril james, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of McGill University. In
an interesting and scholarly address, Mr. james drew a stimulating
outline of the shape of things to come and illustrated past accomplish-
ments by an intimate account of the life of the founder of McGill. He
concluded by exhorting those who were leaving the School to fight
the battles of life with the same determination and conduct that they
had shown on the playing fields.
Prizes were then presented by the following distinguished guests:

Deli-z'ered by G. S. ll. IVO0Hl'07lll7L', Head Bo-V
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen:-
lt is indeed a great honour to have as my last duty as a Student at
Ashbury College the privilege of making this year's valedictory address.
He, the graduates, are now leaving our school days behind and are
setting out to seek our fortunes. We are leaving the place that has been
our second home since we first came here.
We are now graduating into thc illustrious society known as
Ashbury Old Boys.
It was june, 1892 that the first graduate left Ashbury. Since that
time the school has developed and expanded by leaps and bounds.
It was once situated in a downtown flat, cramped for space and in-
adequate: it is now set in these handsome ivy-covered buildings around
us. It was once a group of eleven boys: it now has the bulging enrol-
ment of two hundred and fifty.
During these years of development there have been gradually
established customs and traditions, an excellent record in scholarship
and sports, recognition as one of Canada's outstanding private schools,
and above all, a reputation for producing leaders. For sixty-six years
Ashbury has been moulding minds, for sixty-six years it has been
But although it is the standard of the students that indicates the
worth of a school, it is the staff that do the teaching and training, and I
would like at this time, on behalf of the graduating class, to thank most
sincerely the headmaster, and all the members of his staff for the
really genuine interest they have shown in us, and the willing help they
have given us. Another very important group in the school are the
Prefects, and I would like to thank them for their help and co-
operation through the year. They have, I think, ably fulfilled their
dual function of being: fab leaders and examples for the students, and
Cbj the none too popular role of school policemen. I would also like
to thank the Oflicers and N.C.O.'s of the Cadet Corps, the Room
Captains, and all the others who have done their bit in making this
school a smooth running organization of which we can be proud.
But apart from a pride in Ashbury and her fine reputation as an
educational institution, we, the graduates, must also feel a sense of sad-
ness at leaving behind the place which was the factory of so many sweet
memories, and perhaps a few bitter ones. We will remember the friendly
conversations and the heated arguments, the glory of winning an
important football game, and the humiliation at being Mbawled out" by
the prefects. I don't think I will ever forget my Hrst dav of school.
when my father left me at the front door, a very frightened little Form
96 THE ASHBURIAN
Oner, alarmed at the size of the older boys, and the fact that everyone
called each other by their last names. Nor will I forget the feeling of
suspense before the exam results were posted each term, or the after-
noon the whole school was sick to the stomach after lunch composed
of "chicken fi la ptomainew, or the near explosions in the chemistry lab
as we mixed potent chemicals, or the thrill of beating B.C.S. in the
famous football game last fall, when we came back from a twenty
point deficit to take the cup.
These and many other memories will I cherish, and I am sure that
all Old Boys occasionally recall similar ones. It surely is most pleasant
to look back and reminisce, but we cannot live on past experiences and
at this time we must look to the future.
IVhen we face this thing called the future, and consider our
chances of success, we may think that we should just let things take their
course, and perhaps we will recall the words of the song "Que sera,
sera, what ever will be, will be". However, I believe this thought to be
wrong. The future is what we make it. Success depends upon the
character and the personality of the individual concerned, not on his
past achievements, or sheer good luck. To make a success of our
careers we must have a goal in mind, and work industriously with a
positive outlook to attain that goal. VVe must also develop a good sense
of judgment to exercise in making all the many decisions that will
confront us. But, most important, we must remember to integrate into
our lives the lessons we have learned at Ashbury, which can perhaps
be best summed up in the words of the school motto:- "Probitas,
Virtus, Comitasw. CHONOUR, COURAGE and GRACEJ.
And now, in conclusion, to those who are returning to Ashbury in
the fall:-Have a good summer holiday, and best of luck in your remain-
ing years at Ashbury. And to those of us who are leaving:-Let us go
forth to our various careers, and in looking back on our school days,
be proud that we were Ashburians.
THE ASHBURIAN 97
ADDRESS IN CIIAPICL
G. Nl. XYooi,1.Cox1isr:
XVC have all looked at and admired the beautiful stained glass
window over the altar in this chapel, and have seen the three words
underneath the pictures.-Probitas. Virtus, Comitas. This, as we all
know, is the Ashbury school motto, but how manv Ashburians have
any idea of the background, or even the meaning of' these three words.
First of all, let us look into the motto's history. Many years ago,
about the time of the First VVorld XYar, three different words were
used tentatively, but for some reason or other they were never made
official. These three words were Honor,-meaning honour, Patria,-
meaning love of country, and Labor,-meaning work. It was not,
however, until 1938 that the headmaster at that time, Mr. Archdale
decided that Ashbury should have an official school motto. He got going
a competition among the boys, placed a suggestion box in a prominent
place, and asked the boys to submit their ideas of a good motto. The
winning motto was the one you see in front of you on the window.
The funny part was nobody could find out who had submitted it, so
no prize was given. For the next three years the motto retired
into the Latin books, and was not publicly shown until a school dance in
june, 1941, where it was painted underneath a large school crest,
hanging as a decoration in the gymnasium. From that time on it
was recognized as the official school motto.
But let us now think a bit about the meaning of this motto and
what it should mean to us. The dictionary defines the word "motto"
as a "rule of conduct", or "standard", and we should think of it as
this-as something to live up to, qualities which we should strive to
The first word is "Probitas", which means honour, or upright-
ness. A sense of honour is important in your home, in your school.,
in your country, in the world, but most important in your own
mind. Belief and faith in other people is what keeps the world going
round, and there is no place in it for liars or thieves. Many of us
say "Oh we're O.K. XYe wouldn't rob a bank or perjure ourselves
in court". But how many would own up to some minor
offense if a sure caning were to follow, or how many would refuse
to join a gang of boys about to do something not just mischievous
but downright wrong. If we have the intestinal fortitude to
93 THE ASHBURIAN
"Yes, sir, I did it", if we tell our parents or our house master where
we really were last night, or where we really are planning to go to-
inorrow night, if we can face up to a bad situation without having
to lie our way out of it, if we can keep our consciences clean, then
we can say we have honour. VVe have then lived up to the first
The second word is "Virtus", which means courage. Courage-this
is a quality absolutely essential in modern day living if we are to stand
up to all difliculties that we will meet in life. There are really
two kinds of courage. The first is the ability to act without fear
for oneself in the face of danger, to be a brave soldier, to save a person
from a raging fire, or a swift flowing river, or even to make a low,
hard, tackle in a football game. This is the courage of the attacker,
but even more important is still another kind of courage-that of the
defender. By this I mean the ability to stand up to some task or
situation you know will be difficult, to face the struggles and troubles
we meet in life with a determined mind, and an optimistic outlook.
This is the courage we need. To strive earnestly to make a team,
to overcome some handicap, or impediment, to study for exams with
a positive and logical method of study, to stand up for a cause which
is unpopular but which you know to be right. This type of task
calls for a kind of quiet and resolved courage. If we can have it,
then we have lived up to the second word-Virtus.
And Hnally we come to the last word-"Comitas" which means
Grace. Now the word "grace" in English has several meanings,
ranging from the prayer at the beginning of a meal to the Princess
of Monaco. But I think that we are to take it to mean pleasantness,
a pleasant, friendly disposition, or, in short, just good manners. Per-
haps we would say that good manners are a rather unimportant
quality, to put in a school motto, right beside "HonourH and "Cour-
age", but it is interesting to note that a famous school in England
chose for its motto simply, "Manners maketh man". VVhy are manners
so important. IVell the first reason is that manners are synonymous
with consideration for others. We should consider what the other
person thinks of us. The need for friendliness, and thinking of the
other fellow's feelings is particularly important at this time of year
when we are at the end of a long term, most of it spent indoors, and
the lfaster exams approaching. To get along in the world living
with other people, courtesy, and good manners are vital, and if there's
any sure way of creating a good impression with a prospective em-
ployer, it is with a pleasing manner.
lf we can have good manners, if we can never be called sad-
saeks, or nuisances, or bores, if we can live cheerfully with people we
don't care for, if we can put up with that nasty prefect who puts us
THE ASHBURIAN 99
up to the wallg if we can, in general, make ourselves pleasing to
othersg then we have lived up to the last word-Comitas.
And now, in conclusion. let us hope that if we as Ashburians are
influenced by any saying, motto. or slogan.-let it be by these three
words "Probitas". "Yirtus", "Ccimitas"-Honour. Courage. and Grace.
THE IYOUDS IN .IL'Nl-1
I remember my boyhood days. now that they are behind me,
with more than just a faint recollection of all the fun spent. with
others and alone. I shall never forget that one of my greatest pleasures
came from being alone in the woods, and in the particular instance
aloneness was needed, for I had just completed my june exams.
The sun beating on the dusty road had created a Sahara Desert of
its own, and my feet stirred smoke signals from the lazy dust. At
last I found the trail leading into the woods. and was soon walking
along a smooth, cool trail, punctuated here and there with rocks and
trees and puddles, still muddy from yesterdays rain. Green frogs.
legs and arms outstretched, sprang a hasty retreat under the onslaught
of my boots.
A squirrel twittered nervously on a tree bough, as if in protest
against my invasion of his private domain. Birds sang melodiously
high in the trees and flittered in front of me along the path. and I
can remember marvelling over the loud knocking of a red-headed
woodpecker on a dead tree stump. Later l almost stepped on a
partridge camoufiaged by its feathers from the human eye. and its
frightening escape made my heart jump with fear.
The path eventually led me to a lake. as I could see ahead through
the trees the shimmering blueness of it. Being as quiet as I could, I
made my way silently to the shore. and slipped steadily along to the
big rock which slanted upwards from the lake, and then I saw him.
There stood the biggest moose I have ever seen. His belly was
deep in the water, and every so often his head would duck under
the surface of the water. pause. then reappear with some green vegeta-
tion, water noisily dripping from his beard and mouth. I moved.
and he was off, and never have I ever seen anything so big move so
fast. The brush parted under his antlers, then closed behind him,
and all that remained was a crackling and snapping of the wood as
The distant noise of running water attracted me, and soon I saw
a stream of water before me. I knelt down on the sandy moist bank
and bent to drink, my eyes focused on the water. It was strange
how much I saw in the stream of water, for below me ran a shimmer-
100 THE ASHBURIAN
ing clear liquid, sparkling and dancing with refiections from the sun,
talking to me, babbling like a baby, hurrying as if in a rush to get
to its destination. It was almost a portrayal of life, for speed, beauty,
noise-smooth in spots, but rough in others filled its fibre, and I wonder-
ed if it remembered happy by-gone days as I did. SEED-V1B,
This is the time of year that it rains. The chill winds of March
bring with them rain, the herald of spring with its Howers, and
afterwards the hot months of summer. Looking ahead from the winter
snows, you anticipate the rain, and yet, when it does come, bringing
with it the usual slush, grime, and mud, you, with the fickleness of
man, are still not satisfied. There is, though, something invigorating
about the rain.
You can sense it coming. The moist wind licks your face. The
half-twilight dimmed by the blanket of clouds makes it hard to discern
the feathery tops of the naked trees. The atmosphere is one of
silence for the world is filled with awe. Even the chirp of a bird
in his nest seems lonely and out of place.
Then, like water bursting from a dam comes the rain. Splashing
in puddles on the pavement, it forces worms out of their holes, it
sends dogs scurrying to the warmth and shelter of home, and it seems
to the observer to be the most beautiful and marvellous of the wonders
It lessens in fury now, making only a rhythmic pattering on
doors, windows, and roofs, just whispering to the people inside that
it is still there. Perhaps it is indoors that you get the most pleasure
from rain. Sitting snug in your favourite armchair you look outside
at those running to their own armchairs, and you feel safe, and warm
inside. Lulled to drowsiness by the rhythm of the rain, you regard
the outside world as something foreign.
But the rain has stopped, it has ceased as quickly as it began. Now,
outside, you can look up to see only the faintest fragments
of the dying rainbow in the sky. People are coming, talking, out of their
houses, and the hustle and bustle is beginning again. The sun has come
out from behind the rain clouds, and smiles on the glistening panorama
before him. A ehipmunk pokes his head out of a hole in a tree,
chatters, and seampers into its uppermost branches. The clean, new
smell of the air fills your nostrils, and the world which you now
observe seems to bear no resemblance to itself as it was, only a few
hours before. FASCQO-VIC
THE ASHBURIAN 101
THF, FASCINATION OF Tllli SKY
"Then felt I like some watcher of thc skies, XYhen a new planet
swims into his ken." This thrill which men derive from watching the
heavens was noticed long before Keats wrote his famous lines. Indeed,
since earliest times the sky has been a source of never ending fascination
to man. The neolithic cave dweller looked to the sky for omens, he
cringed in terror as thunder rolled and lightning flashed, he gloried in
the pleasure which a bright and sunny day imparted to him. The sky
was a device of the gods with which they warned or punished, thanked
or rewarded. Many ancient civilizations paid homage to a sun god,
moon gods were also common, in fact, most of the celestial bodies
seemed to have their own cult of worshippers.
An ancient Greek physicist, Aristarchus, was the first to realize
that the earth was round and orbited about the sun, but the world
little noted nor long remembered his theory, and it was not until the
15th century AD. that it was confirmed. The Egyptians were so
advanced in their study of the sky that they were able to calculate the
length of the year to within one half-hour, a feat which was not dupli-
cated until after 1700.
Of course, in the present day, our astronomers are able to calculate
the movements of the heavenly bodies with fantastic accuracy, and
can predict these movements for anywhere up to a million years from
now. This upswing of knowledge means that the sky holds a myriad
new interests for the layman, who is now given a chance to know and
see the natural celestial phenomena which from time to time come
within the range of human vision or of the lenses of our less expensive
telescopes. Indeed, everyone can now have the thrill to which Keats
Needless to say, despite the vast amount of knowledge which has
been accumulated over the years, new things are being discovered,
many secrets are, as yet, still hidden and many old theories have yet
to be proved or disproved. One of the main reasons why visual
exploration has taken so long is the vast distances involved. For
example, john Landy, running continually at a speed of one mile
every four minutes, would take a year and a half to reach the moon,
our nearest celestial neighbor. Even our fastest 'plane, which covers
the distance between Halifax and Vancouver in just over one hour,
would take four days to reach the moon. This means that telescopes
must be of fantastic power if any of the details of the planets in our
solar system are to be observed.
The sky is eternal. All things on earth are only temporary, they
come and go, are built and fall down, but the sky is here to stay.

student at Ashbury College practising to be a plain-clothes man, that's
a good one! Do you know I can't even Hnd the answers to questions
in the exams? A friend has to do that for me.
Come to think of it, though, I have had some successful snoopings.
If you have some time to spare, I might tell you one. The Hrst triumph
that comes to mind is the time my room captain, David Flam, received
a package. It was crated and I could see Dave's mouth watering at
the thought of some scrumptious candy from home. "But," I said
to myself, "this looks fishy". I don't know why I thought this. I sup-
pose it was because I hadn't had a case for a long time, and my brain
gets hungry. Anyway, to make a short story shorter, Dave got it all un-
packed - and wammy! He got it right in the gut! It was a boxing
glove attached to a strong spring, however, we managed to keep Dave
alive with artificial respiration under Gilbert's directions.
I started thinking hard, which, incidentally, is not as hard for me
to do as some Masters seem to think. I got into bed as the lights out
whistle went, still thinking about the case. I thought about it until about
eleven o'clock. By then I had narrowed my selection to ranks of people.
It was either a room-captain or a prefect. VVhich rank, and who?
As luck would have it, the problem was easily solved when I upset
the jam pot into a prefectls lap. At the time, though, I did not know the
culprit was that prefect. On his summons I went up to his room, very
glumly, as I thought he would hamper my progress. There he proceeded
to give me a thorough going-over and stood me at his wall. IVhile I
was standing there, I chanced to glance out of the corner of my eye
and saw a board lying on his desk, and beside it what looked like a clue.
l didn't know what to do.
My chance came that evening when I had to go to the prefect
again. This time it was to tell him that he was wanted on the phone.
Ile was absent when I went there to check, so I had the opportunity
I needed. l examined the piece of wood and spring which I had seen
lying beside it. Turning over the board I found the inscription "S.Ba"
A evidently part of an address. I rushed back to my own room and tore
ihe erating oi? Flam's parcel apart. On a piece of it I found g'rkun" -
'Htaii l!arkiiii." The case was complete, with evidence.
I talked to the boys in the room about it. Un Farrugia's suggestion
we dteided to try the guilty one. TYe then discussed the question of
the punisliment of the criminal. Nlorson made a suggestion, "Let's
have the room give him six of the best with twelve from Fattal and
l"Iain!" This suggestion was unanimously accepted. By this time it
was lights out.
THE ASHBURIAN 103
The next day, june 3, 1957, I put on my knuckle-dusters and
called on the prefect to ask him a few questions. The interview
terminated when he admitted his guilt, signed a full confession, and
stumbled into Rhodes Hall to stand trial.
I-Iis case was heard by jurors Sugden, Sproule, Gnaedinger,
IVebster, Ross and jones, Fattal I acted as judge, I acted as prosecuting
attorney and the prisoner conducted his own defence.
On june 3, 1957, the prefect was sentenced, according to NIorson's
suggestion. Case closed!
XYell. there you have Fattal II's best job at sleuthing. Come around
again and I'll spin you another yarn.

FAST TRAIN TO NUIYHERE
HE mournful whistle was heard echoing back and forth against
the high precipitous walls of Red Rock canyon, as the old pass-
enger train neared Folk's crossing, on her nightly trip. A wispy trail
of smoke, and a fleeting, golden ribbon of light were all that was re-
membered of the 109 as she roared past Alcott station at full throttle
on that fateful June night in 1924.
IVhat had happened to the great iron monster, that had utterly
disintegrated into the night, shocking a whole nation?
VVhere had her six hundred odd passengers been taken after the
train flashed by the elderly Alcott station master, the last reported
person to see the ill-fated 109? The only clue was a mysterious ex-
plosion which rocked the countryside, and broke windows for miles
This was easily explained though, for a bridge and new power
plant were being built on the Kanooga-Noga River and the workers
frequently blasted at night, for it was the only time when the stream
of traffic through the canyon could be stemmed.
IYhat was the answer? Could the letter received by Alrs. Louise
Thompson from her husband, a passenger. be of any help?
In the last few sentences of the letter Nlr. Thompson said he
couldn't sleep, that his hands were perspiring and his forehead was
damp. Also, he said he was all tensed up inside and sensed that
something, something he couldn't explain, was about to happen.
Mrs. Thompson thought he must have been very nervous, for his
handwriting was uneven and his hand must have been shaking dread-
Now we can reconstruct what really happened, for in August
of 1955, thirty-one years after her mysterious disappearance, the 109
104 THE ASI-IBURIAN
was found. It seems that through some fault, human or otherwise,
a switch had come open, and the great machine had sped on to an
abandoned section of track, carrying passengers and crew to their
doom. As the train was midway through a giant tunnel cut in the
mountain over the old line, the rotting timbers supporting the roof
gave way, causing the instant burial of the whole train under a million
tons of earth. The tunnel was supposed to have been closed Fifteen
years ago in 1909, and the tracks and switch removed also.
I saw a star one evening
High up in the dark, black sky,
VVhose brilliance held me spellbound
lVhose beauty made me sigh.
And as I sat there staring
At that bright spot in the sky,
It seemed to tell me all is well
But I could not imagine why.
For as I looked around me,
I saw the strife and the fear
That man has brought upon himself
VV ith each advancing year,
And as I sat there staring,
It suddenly came to me,
That with time and will to heed the stars
How peaceful we could be. YEWXIAY-VIB
MY LIFE IN CANADA
I was born in japan and I had lived there for twelve years before
I came to Canada. The reason for my coming to this country was
in order to stake out my future for what will possibly be the rest of
After quite unhappily leaving all my friends in Tokyo, which
incidentally has no houses made out of paper as is the impression of
some members of this school, I travelled by ocean liner and airplane
through much of the Orient until I finally arrived in Montreal.
Since school was to begin soon, I was kept in some suspense as
to what Ashbury Cwhere my brother and I were to stayj would be
like. liven though I had been in an American School in japan, I had
some weird ideas on the nature of Canada and Canadian schools. I
had heard, from what I now discover to be quite unreliable sources,
THE ASHBURIAN 105
that Canada was a land of snow and ice, and that I would actually
have to help the Eskimos build their igloos. Nlany people told me
that the only reason that Ottawa was the Capital city of Canada, was
because it was the dwelling place of the most savage tribe of Indians
in the whole country.
IYhen I finally arrived in Ashbury, I found the place to be
civilized to an extent which I would have never believed possible.
just the same, I did find that some of the people in this school had
some very quaint ideas. For instance, many thought that the only
way to travel in japan was to take a "ricksha". But the strangest
thing of all was the way in which the Nlontrealers would describe
their home town as "THE BIG CITY." I soon found that this meant
a big city in Canadian tertns QTokyo has about three times the popula-
tion of Montrealj.
IYhile staying at Ashbury, I have learned many new things. I
have learned what it is like to be in a school which has winning'
teams. My school in japan was notorious for the fact that it never
won in any sport. I have also learned about "drag racing" Cfrom
Bill Draperl, and about the famous 0'Keefe's Brewery Cfrom Xlike
After going through all this Qeven to the extent of being called
"josh"J, I am quite glad that I have decided to live in Canada for
the rest of my life. And the factor which has been the greatest
influence in making me feel this way is Ashbury.
I SEE THE LIGHT
I was a juvenile delinquent,
I wouldrft work in school.
So I was doomed by the highest court
Gly parents made the ruIe.J
My sentence was a private school,
My stretch is one long year,
IYhich gives me time to realize
I've been a fool, I fear.
But as my term draws to a close,
Nostalgia grips my heart,
For the masters who so patiently
Their knowledge did impart.
So at this time I'm thanking you
One and all for what you've done,
To drag me from the darkness
So I may see the sun.

FAST TRAIN TO NGWHERE
john was very happy as he boarded up his cottage, Normally he
would have been unhappy, as the holidays were just about over, but
this time he was happy, as he would find out what happened to the
train this evening.
Five weeks ago everyone had left the Point as if their tails were on
fire. There had been some very strange things happening at the Point.
john had decided to stay and find out the cause of all these strange
lt all started with the train from New York. lt was a fast diesel
train, and it ran from New York to the Point, and then on to Detroit.
It had been doing this for two years when suddenly it failed to arrive
at Detroit. The train had definitely stopped at the Point, but it had
not arrived at Detroit. After a few hours a search party was sent out
over the tracks, but the train could not be found. It had disappeared
completely, passengers and all.
The police were called on to investigate, but they could not find
any solution to the problem. Finally, after many weeks of research,
they had to give up. They closed the book on the case leaving it un-
During this time, however, strange things had been happening
back at the Point. The track was unused since the trainis disappearing
but residents of the Point claimed that they heard the train come
through on time, while others said they had seen it.
After a few days of this, however, most of the residents had
departed, leaving john very lonely and a little frightened by the
thought of ghosts. No one had given his reason for going, but john
knew that they were frightened by the "ghost train" as it had come
to be called. The train had frightened john a bit, but he finally stored
up enough courage to go down to the station and watch for the train.
Unfortunately, he was delayed and arrived at the station just as the
train was pulling out. He resolved then that he would be there on time
the following day.
At five o'clock the next day he was at the station and the train
arrived on time. He decided to go aboard and find out what was going
on. As he climbed on board the train pulled out, this alarmed ,lohn
a hit but he was comforted by the sight of people on the train. They
were very much alive and did not seem to be aware of the fact that they
had been on a train for two weeks without food. Suddenly he saw
that a paper a passenger was reading was dated the day that the train
had disappeared two weeks ago. As he began to wonder just what was
going on. he realized that he had a feeling that he had never felt before.
The train was going around a very sharp bend, and it seemed to john
that he saw the events of the past day going backwards in front of his
eyes. Suddenly . . .

The roar of the rapids ahead sent thrills tingling up and down
my spine. Then we saw the foaming, writhing, dashing stretch of
white water dead ahead. I knelt forward in the bows.
"Left!" I yelled, and the sternsman responded with a twist of his
"Keep left! It's calmer there!"
Then I saw the rock. It was lurking just above the water-line,
an ominous obstacle looming frighteningly before us. Pete saw it
too. With a series of frantic strokes of his paddle, he desperately
strove to guide the canoe to safety in the deeper, calmer water beyond.
The canoe turned. The furious current drove it sideways against
the rock. I followed Pete's example and leaped overboard keeping
my hand high, so that the precious watch, the only one on the trip
would not be drenched. Then I was floundering around in deep
water, hanging on with all the strength in my one arm, to the canoe,
which Pete, and joe, the middleman, were striving frantically to dis-
lodge from its helpless position around the rock. Finally it came
loose. joe grabbed on, and Pete giving it a vicious shove forward,
knocked it into the dark depths beyond. IYe let the current, still
strong, carry us downstream until we reached a shallow ledge. IVe
clambered hastily up and climbed into the canoe.
The next set of rapids was even trickier. They formed an "Sn
curve of the river with steep, slippery rock walls on either side. There
was no going back. Our skilful sternsman, Pete, guided us safely
through the slower, upper reaches. Then, through the mist, I descried
not only one rock, but a row of them. But I saw one opening - a
narrow three-foot wide gateway in the looming boulders. If I could
only guide Pete through this! i
"Quick!" Swing a bit to the right!"
Ike were headed for the opening. The rushing waves hurled us
towards the jagged teeth of the great boulders. XYC surged forward, the
never-relenting current driving us like a match-stick. IYould we make
it? There was a sudden scraping on the canoes bottom. A rib Seemed
to crack under us. We were through. But ahead was the curve. The
roaring increased. IYe were driven faster. Huge waves, the backlash of
boulders just below the surface encompassed us. We rocked ominously.
Then above the steady roar of the hurtling torrents of water, a higher
pitched sound could distinctly be heard.
108 THE ASHBURIAN
"A waterfall!" yelled joe.
There we were, surrounded by high rocky walls, a strong current
behind us, and waterfalls ahead. VVhat could we do? Fear mounted in
our hearts. Look! The wall had miraculously opened at one side.
"joe! Pete! Look! VVe can portage!"
Slowly we turned the canoe around and urged it towards
the goal. The current was sweeping us down with ever increasing
velocity. We had to make it! VVe thrust hard against the powerful
torrents. The canoe was turning, now was the time for expert steer-
ing. lf the canoe turned at right angles to the current, we would
be swept sideways over the falls. XVe headed for a spot just above
the opening. The canoe touched land and we gave a Hnal thrust.
The stem swept around, the gravel crunching under our bows. I
leaped out and hauled frantically upon the bows. joe was out, then
Pete. VVe heaved the boat bodily out of the water. VVe were safe.
I looked down at the beautiful but sickening spectacle of the falls
whose clutches we had so narrowly escaped and thanked the skill of
my canoe mates for my life. MERRETT-VA.
Mr. jobling and his French-speaking friends went on an insect
hunt. We took the road to YORKtown until we came to a small

FUN AT THE FAIR
The town is full of excitement today, and the children are bustling
with joy, for it isn't often that a fair comes to town. liven parents of
these children feel light of heart today. They seem to remember the
time when they were children and could hardlv wait until school was
out so they could rush to the field where the tents were pitched. There
one can smell the delicious smells of the chip wagon. the cotton-candy
and pop-corn wagons. There one can hear the shouts of the balloon
man and the men on the side-shows, attracting people to the platform.
All this mingles with jolly strains from the calliope and roar of the
midway with its many rides.
The time is -I-:30 and already the kids are making a bee-line for
the amusement field. Children young and old are thronging the gates.
Some kids have gone home to chisel poor old pop for fifty cents for
admission. They seem to know Dad has had a hard day at the office
and will do anything to get them out of his hair for a while. After a
bit of coaxing and warning from Xlother, Dad gives in, and the children
are off like a shot.
At the held the children find that the fair has a new addition to
its midway - a huge roller coaster. They ride on it many times. They
then go to the Ferris lYheel which swings its merry way around and
around. After many rides, such as the Caterpillar. the Nloon Rocket
and the XYhirl-of-XYhip, the kids go to the hot-dog stands and pop-corn
wagons and eat enough to sink a battleship. They then decide to try
their luck at the booths and go to the fun houses and the mirror rooms
and of course see a couple of side-shows. The main attraction seems to
be the "Sky Knight" and the XVild West show. After this the children
have probably about five or ten cents left. so they invest it in a "Try
Your Luck" booth, where some are fortunate and some are not.
The parents, however, while the children are at the booths, are
having their fun at the "Bingo" tent directly across in the centre of
the fair, and the raffles, and the booths where the many fine cakes
and pastries are being sold. They are quite content and happy too. The
evening goes on and at the end of the last hour, from eleven to twelve
o'clock, beautiful and colourful fireworks light up the heavens above
the fair, thus putting a climax to the day.
The next day when the children pass the field on their way to
school they find that the fair is gone. lt has packed up during the night
and has moved on to the next town. However, they aren't sad, for
they still remember the evening before. So, as they trudge up the path
to school, their spirit is gay and they hope with all their might that
a fair may come soon again.

Potholes here aren't anything new,
Even around our modern city
Every street has got a few,
To them we dedicate our ditty.
They damage a front suspension spring
Ur start a rattle in the door,
Soon your head begins to sing
So all you see are potholes more.
They help mechanics live today
To meet a biQl for grocery things,
And similar accounts to pay
So lights will work and the telephone rings.
The Sunday driver in his car
Uihen the rutty road he dares to chance
He does not have to travel far
To learn the bumpy pothole dance.
The city is quiet and the shadows are deep,
The moon is high and all are asleep
VVhen suddenly out of the darkness down the street
Footsteps are heard.
The clock strikes twelve and the footsteps are near,
A frightening sound to anyone's ear,
The shadow of a stranger all dressed in black
Draws closer and closer, in his pace, no slack.
He rounds the corner, into the light,
Then away in the shadows, away from sight.
Only the sound of his footsteps is heard
Falling into the shadows, the shadows of night.

THE YEAR IN REVIEW
The Year has been a busy one for the juniors and we have Cwe
thinkj brought credit to the School. Christopher O'Brien, Form IIIA
reached the Semi-Finals of the Ontario Spelling Bee, Alan Gill, Tran-
situs, almost brought the Cruickshank Trophy of the Ottawa Humane
Society back to Ashbury and the boys, down as far as Form II, all
did well in the Society's Essay Competition. Kennedy, Transitus, won
the -lunior Public Speaking and Campbell I, IIIB, the junior Poetry
junior Sports were excellent, and the percentage of M.L.T.S. was
at least as high as any division in the School. juniors also did well
in the Boxing and Swimming.
' To some uf the "Heirarchy" of the School we may be awful
nuisances but we feel we do contribute a great deal to Ashbury.

This year there has been a drought as far as literary work is con-

few kept their promises. I think this a disgrace to the junior School

ST. L.-UYRENCE SEAXYAY TOUR
N October 13th Mr. Rees and thirty Ashburians left Ashbury
College to tour the St. Lawrence Seaway. We left Ottawa via
the Experimental Farm and the Prescott Highway. After half an
hour's travelling we went through Spencerville, and a few miles be-
yond we saw some apples for sale, so the driver stopped the bus to
let Mr. Rees out, who bought two baskets and distributed them
amongst the boys. Then we arrived at johnston's Corner, east of
Prescott, where we were allowed a ten minute break.
It was here that we got our first glimpse of the seaway. From
then on our journey took us alongside the river. On this route we
went through a number of small towns, the two main ones being
Iroquois and Morrisburg. These small towns will be moved to new
town sites and the roads we were travelling along will be under water
by the time the project is completed.
The group then stopped for lunch at Long Sault Rapids, a most
magnificent sight. To make it possible for ocean going liners to
pass this point it will be necessary to deepen and widen the river.
To do this the river will be diverted through a dam, thus stopping
the water and enabling wheeled vehicles to manoeuvre on the dry
river bed, this method being cheaper than dredging.
After our meal we proceeded to Cornwall where we met our guide
who showed us a map of the power dam and how the ice was able to
pass through the sluice gates in Winter. XYe then went across to the
U.S.A. by way of the coffer dam and turned around and came back.
Each coffer dam is about 10 or 12 feet wide and is made of a number of
half circles of corrugated iron placed together and filled with mud,
clay, rocks and cement. These hold back the water. On one side was
the river and on the other were gigantic cranes, tractors, bulldozers and
130 THE ASHBURIAN
trucks working together to help build the huge power dam which will
supply both Canada and U.S.A. with electricity. VVhilst the river is
being dammed there is a temporary canal with a depth of over 40 feet.
VV e travelled through the tunnel that goes under it.
It was now about 5 p.m. and time to go home and none of the
boys realized how quickly the day had passed. VVe said "Goodbye"
to our guide and thanked him for his help, got into the bus and set off
towards Ottawa. At Morrisburg we stopped for a break and one of
the boys left his camera here. After passing through Iroquois we
finally reached school at 6.30 p.m. We were all tired but agreed
that day had been well spent. VVe felt that we had learned a lot
about the wonderful St. Lawrence Seaway project.
CHRISTMAS TERM TRIP TO THE SLAUGHTER HOUSE
A very exciting event took place during the Christmas term,
which everybody was looking forward to. It was on a XVednesday, if
I can remember rightly, when the class Transitus went on a trip
to the Canada Packers Slaughter House. The taxis arrived at nine-fifteen
and we left at about nine-thirty.
On the way everyone was looking forward to getting there, but
when we got there it was the other way round. VVe walked in and
waited for one of the personnel to take us around the plant. First he
told us some of the things that they produced and they showed us some
of the things. Later they took us up to the second floor, where a
strange aroma suddenly went through us all and as we went up it
grit worse and worse, till all of a sudden the elevator stopped and
when we got out we could hear an earpiercing noise of the pigs
squealing. IVe then saw about fifty white pigs being led down this
corridor. Everybody thought that they were going to get sick, except a
couple of people like Hammy Hill who took it all as a joke. Then
we went down a little way and saw where the pigs were being
slaughtered. At the end of this big corridor there were the pigs being
strung up by one of their hind legs and being sent up a long conveyor
belt upside down until they came to a man with a knife six inches long
and razor sharp on both sides. He then grabbed the front paw and
:arm-lc the knife into the throat of the pigs, as they struggled the
lllootl came out of their throat until they died. After that they are
washed and the hairs are burned off and then they are cleaned and
the good parts are kept and the bad thrown awaygithen they are cut
up and put into packages. At the end they gave us some free C.P.
Cheese and expected us to eat it after we visited the Canada Packers

If you can go to school each Monday morning
And not complain the weekends far too short,
if you get through the day without one warning,
And look attentive all the time you're taught.
if you can field all afternoon at cricket,
And smile e'en though you're never up to bat,
Or set your little foot inside the wicket
To be bowled out first ball, and say "That's that".

Though you are always silent as the grave,
if you can say your poem without once baulking
And always act the gentleman, and behave.

You'll be the pride and joy of every Master,
And what is more, the best boy in the school.

A TRIP TO THE M.-XGISTRATITS COURT
On Mednesday, May 16, Transitus took what I thought was the
IHOSII interesting trip of the year.
Me arrived at Magistrates Court at about 9:30 a.m. There Sgt.
Polk gave us a talk on the dealings of Magistrates Court. The presiding
Magistrate was Magistrate Strike. and during the morning we saw
many minor cases dealt with. After the proceedings were over Magis-
trate Strike also gave us a short talk.
Upon leaving the Court we headed for the Parliament Buildings
where we went to the top of the Peace Tower. There we could see a
great deal of the citv. M'hen we descended we made a tour of the
building. Many interesting facts were learned and we saw such rooms
as the Commons, the Parliamentary Library. etc.
I enjoyed this trip very much and I am sure it was equally
enjoyed by everyone else.
152 THE ASHBURIAN
TRIP TO THE E. B. EDDY CO. AND
THE ROYAL CANADIAN MINT
At nine o'clock on the third Wednesday in October we left the
school for the E. B. Eddy Co. On arriving, we were met by a guide
who was to show us around the plant and tell us all about it. First we
went around the buildings and were told all about the massive log
pile. XVe then watched the various processes of making paper.
After We left the plant we took a bus to the Royal Canadian Mint
where, after waiting at the gate for our guide, we were shown how
they made coins of all values. Most interesting to me were the gold
bars. VVe arrived back at school just in time for lunch. I am sure that
the trip was considered a great success by all.
MY DOG GEORGE
At home I have a friendly dog,
His coat is brown and white
He does not bite, he only barks,
Vlfhen strangers come at night.
He loves to tag along with me,
VVhen I go out to play
And if I throw a ball for him,
It makes him very gay.
One day our team was in the field,
The score was one to one.
The last man up, I had a chance,
To score the winning run.
I hit the ball, it soared up high,
The fielder could not see
But George ran out and caught it clean,
And brought it back to me.

CLASS TRIP - FORM IIIA
This Qveir our Form Master, Mr. Spencer, has only taken us on
one trip - ii farewell to john Dankwort, who was leaving with his
parents for Rio de janeiro. john had the choice of outing and he said
it was to be a movie. There were very few suitable movies on at the
time, and eventually it was decided that "High Society" was to be
the favoured one. Bing Crosby, Grace Kelly Cvery much in the

movie, with many fine scenes.
XVe all miss john and we hope he is happy in Rio, where his
father is now German Ambassador.
Please listen gentle people
To what I have to say.
I am just a little fellow,
But listen anyway.
My friends all call me PETER,
Because - well - That's my name.
And if it's not much trouble,
I hope you'll do the same.
Some grown-ups try to lock their heart
And not let children in,
But if you'll give me half a chance.
I'll bet you I can win.
So please accept my friendship
For You'll find nothing sweeter,
And if you ever call on me,
Remember - the name is PETER.
