3 THE ASHBURIAN
Xenophon's account of the reaction of the Ten Thousand at their
first glimpse of the sea on their heroic journey homeward has always
seemed to us a most moving description of a high, emotional moment.
As the reader may remember, after their great victory at the
battle of Canaxa, in Asia Minor, this army of Greek adventurers set
oif on the return march to the Mediterranean and thence - home.
Their march began in September and lasted many weary months. It
led them through two thousand miles of unfamiliar and hostile territory.
It led them across burning deserts and over freezing mountain ranges.
They were under constant attack by a cruel and relentless foe, who
watched them from the heights and hurled boulders down upon them
in the narrow valleys, who ambushed them in thickets, who opposed
them bitterly with showers of arrows at the fords of icy rivers. Never-
theless their resourcefulness, courage and inspiration carried them
through all these incredible hardships and dangers until at last they
emerged within sight of the sea - that shining, level pathway to home,
happiness, and a temporary tranquility.
"At this moment they stood," Says Xenophon, "all facing the
same way, with tears of thankfulness running down their cheeks. They
shouted a great shout."
Surely theirs had been a bitter but a glorious march - and

Once again. Opening Jay. September Il. rolled around bringing
with it the cheerful faces of old boys and new boys alike. looking
forward to another year of hard work. Xlr. Perry. in his Opening
Day speech. besides welcoming our new boys, remarked that the
school was almost bursting at the seams with a capacity enrolment.
The following day Nlr. S. Irvin. the Chairman of the Board of
Governors, honoured us with a few words. and. following the time-
honoured tradition. asked the Headmaster to grant the School a half
holiday. This Nlr. Perry was pleased to do.
CHANGES OF STAFF
As noted in last year's Ashburian. we lost at that time the services
of Nlr. C. T. Ruddick and Nlr. A. B. Wells. of the teaching staff. also
of Miss Vaughan, the Junior Xlatron. At the beginning of this school
year we were joined by Xlr. Cvraham jackson. a former Head Boy. and
Mr. D. NI. Boswell, formerly of Stanstead. Mrs. Hardy took over
Miss Yaughan's duties and she, in turn. was replaced during the year
by Hrs. Klulhall.
The traditional weekly movies were again shown on Saturday
nights throughout the year. Here the new assembly hall in Argyle
proved a great advantage to the screen and the acoustic properties of
the entertainments. Hr. Sibley was successful in obtaining an
unusually fine repertoire of pictures and was ably assisted in their
showing by his proiectionists. Brodhead I and Ince.
The traditional Christmas party
was held on the closing night of
the Fall Term and consisted of a
Hne dinner, for all. followed by a
sing-song. movies. slight of hand
performance by a well known
professional 'magician' and a
piano recital by Victor Fascio-
for the Seniors. The juniors
IQ THE ASHBURIAN
entertainment consisted of a series of 'short' movies, a visit by Santa
Clause Cwho whimsically changed his accent from Australian to English
this yearj and their own performance by the magician.
As reported elsewhere, the School Dance was perhaps the most
successful of any year so far. The decorations in the Assembly Hall
reached a new high in artistic perfection and the gym, Where supper
was served, was also beautifully decorated, night club style.
Except for the Asian Hu epidemic at the beginning of the fall
term, the school health this year has been very good. Of course,
there was the usual lineup each morning for fevers, ingrown toenails
and other miscellaneous symptoms usually attributed to that mysterious
sickness schoolitis. The backbone of our defense against disease is
Miss Bray, and credit for Ashbury's excellent state of health must go to
her. The few times that things got out of hand, either Dr. Rowan-
Legg or Dr. Petrie stepped in to set them right.
XVith much regret we learned that we were to lose four valued
members of our community: Mr. Vetter, Mr. Macintyre, Mr. Rees, and
Major Woods. Messrs Vetter and Macintyre, during their two years
at the School have done excellent work in their respective departments.
Mr. Rees, who has been with us for four years as head of the Depart-
ment of History, also acted as Cadet Corps Instructor and as such
deserves credit for the distinguished success of the Corps. Major
Woods is an old friend of the School, having been with us previously
for a period of four years. All these departing members of our staff
will be most sincerely missed.
BUILDING AND IMPROVEMENT
Thanks to the generosity of Old Boys, parents, and friends of the
School, last year's hopes for a badly needed addition to the plant have
been realized. During the year we were able to watch the progress of
building operations which culminated by the Easter Holidays in a fine
new unit in Argyle, consisting of an Assembly Hall, with stage, another
large classroom, an office, music studio, and washrooms. VVe can
assure those who have so generously donated to the Fund that these
badly needed facilities have already been put to good use.
VVe gratefully acknowledge the receipt of gifts to the School:
those presented by the Mothers' Guild - as noted elsewhere in this
magazine, a fine new oil painting, the work of Ed. jackson, noted
landscape painter of this city, 'presented to the Headmaster by the
Graduating Class, also a gift of books to the library by Hutcheon.
THE ASHBURIAN I1
As on so many previous occasions a large number of parents and
friends were entertained in the School Chapel on the Sunday evening
before the beginning of the Christmas holidays by Nlr. Sibley and his
Choir. This year the Choir, normally restricted to members drawn
from the junior School, was augmented by a number of senior boys
whose tenor and bass voices considerably strengthened the more
familiar seasonal hymns and carols in which the whole congregation
took part. The period carols sung by the junior boys were an unusual
delight. The finely textured accompaniment on the organ added a
very great deal to the success of the Service. For this we are indebted
to Mr. Snelgrove, a member of our academic staff, who is also Organist
of St. Bartholomew's Church.
On VVednesday, March 12th. the Lord Bishop of the Diocese, the
Rt. Rev. E. S. Reed, administered Confirmation, the Apostolic Rite of
the Laying on of Hands, in the Chapel. This is always a highlight of
the School year. Our Bishop, with his informal and simple dignity
and his kindly personal interest in each of the Candidates always seems
to evoke a spirit of deep reverence and sincerity in the hearts of all
present. The following were ConHrmed: D. A. R. Browning, C. R.
Coristine, C. G. H. Davidson, G. R. C. Daniel, C. A. Flood, NI. V.
Hearne, Xl. Lichty, D. G. Love, N. M. Lynn, P. XY. Martin,
B. Merrett, P. A. E. Rex, D. B. Sutherland, A. bl. Nl. Twaddle,
C. M. M. Twaddle, and two young ladies, Penelope Burritt and Gale
Gut daily Chapel Services, though brief, provide us all with a much
needed opportunity to lay aside the inevitable frictions of daily living
which arise in our closely packed community. Here, in fellowship
with one another, with hearts and minds open to receive the blessing
of God, our Father, the Giver of all
good things, we Hnd strength to per- l
form our daily tasks. Thanks to the
cooperation of all present in taking a
full part in the service, the occasions
have not been few when the sense of
the "Presence" in our midst has been W w S S
very real indeed. Particularly is this so.
as it should be, at our Services of
Holy Communion. We are conscious
of a debt of gratitude owing to those
who quietly and conscientiously carry
,3 THE A51-IBURIAN
out some of the practical de-
tails in order that our worship
may, according to St. Paul's
injunction, be done "decently
and in order": the Chapel Pre-
fect, Mike Berridge, the Chapel
Clerks, Dal Brodhead and Peter
lnce, the Servers, Eric Det-
chon, Victor Fascio, Peter
Noel-Bentley, john Sarkis and
Tim Sparling. From a nervous
beginning last September, our
Prefects, who normally read
the Lessons in Chapel, have ac-
quired both confidence and
competence in performing a task which is by no means easy. It is to be
hoped that when settled in a parish these young men will place their
talents at the service of their rectors and congregations. It is a laudable
and long-standing tradition in the Anglican Church to have the Lessons
at Morning and Evening Prayer read by members of the Congregation,
and to have the assistance of Servers at the Holy Communion. The
experience gained here may well provide an opening for those who wish
to perform a useful function in the Parish Church.
During the year we enjoyed the visits of two clergyrnen, one an
old friend of the School, the Rev. Roland Bodger, Rector of St.
Cuthbertls Church, Montreal, P.Q. and the Rev. Guy Marston, Rector
of St. Peter's Church, Sherbrooke, P.Q. both of whose sermons were
greatly appreciated by all. In addition we have had the usually fine
addresses by the Headmaster, Mr. Brain, and Mr. Sibley.
At our ll olclock Sunday Services we continue to enjoy the
presence of a considerable number of visitors and regular worshippers
from the immediate vicinity and from Elmwood, our neighbouring
Ciirl's School. VVhile we do not wish to infringe upon anyone's normal
parish allegiance, it should, perhaps, be more widely known that we do
welcome and appreciate visitors to this Service each week.
XVe may note in passing that the Chapel is no longer of adequate
size for our School membership. An extension to the limits of our
property is greatly to be desired. XVe therefore hope that any of our
readers who may be thinking in terms of honouring someonels memory
or repaying a debt of gratitude may be moved to consider our need a
matter of prime importance.
THE ASHBURIAN 1?
Tocn TO xioxrtuiat
The first of the Science tours this vear was to Xlontreal. Those
concerned were excused last period on XYednesday, February 6th for
a quick supper in Symington Hall. At a quarter to six, we left by
bus for Montreal. Arriving there at about ten-thirtv. some departed
to stay with friends or relatives, and the rest checked in at the Y.Nl.C.A.
Thursday morning, after breakfast in the cafeteria, we em-
barked via taxi to the Canadair Plant on St. Laurent Blvd. Before
starting our tour, we were given a brief talk by Xlr. Peter Redpath,
a former Ashburian and a present Governor, and some of his associates.
Our tour of the huge plant included many facets in the building of
modern aircraft from the drawing-board stage to the finished product,
and we were impressed with the great number of people, machines
and materials required for its construction. We saw the building of
the latest Maritime Reconnaissance Aircraft which has recently been
turned over for service to the Canadian Martime Patrol. After the
tour, we were given a wonderful buffet luncheon in the executive
dining-room, where we met another old boy, john Smith.
From Canadair, we were taken by car to Ayerst, McKenna and
Harrison a few blocks away. This company is the maker of drugs
and medicines of various sorts. Viie were conducted through the
plant by Mr. Shippley. Wie watched with fascination the manufacture
of capsules and pills of many different shapes, sizes and colours. VVe
also saw the making of ampoules for hypodermics in which the utmost
antiseptic precautions are required. We were told that Ayerst,
McKenna and Harrison was founded in the twenties, and is now the
largest such company in Canada. In recent years, it has expanded into
the U.S.A. Our tour concluded with a glimpse into the research
work being carried on, with an interesting talk by one of the research
Directors, and then we adjourned for refreshments and samples of the
Friday morning saw us arriving at the Northern Electric Company.
Our guide for the morning was Col. Short whose son is a former
Ashburian. VVe were shown the manufacture of telephones, micro-
wave relay equipment and switchboards. XYe were guided through a
section of the plant in which small components for these machines
were made. Here, Col. Short told us, many women were paid for these
jobs so that they could talk while carrying on their automatic tasks
The molding machines which make the plastic shells for the telephones
was another interesting sight. Fourteen-hundred telephones a day are
turned out at this plant. At the end of the tour. we were treated to
a lunch in the company cafeteria.
14 THE ASI-IBURIAN
At one-thirty that afternoon we arrived at the Dominion Rubber
Co. where many different rubber products are manufactured. VVe
watched the crude rubber being treated chemically and fabricated to
its final shape. V Among the products being made at this time were large
conveyor belts and rubber tank linings for chemical plants.
Friday evening after a sea-food dinner at Traymore's Restaurant,
at which everyone ate heartily, we made a tour of the Canadian Broad-
casting Corp0ration's downtown building. At first, we were shown a
film which told us how a typical T.V. drama was put on. VV e were
then shown two radio studios, one of which had a large wooden
cabinet used in making various sound effects, such as the opening and
closing of doors. The floors of these studios are suspended to eliminate
vibrations, from traffic outside the building. The highlight of this
tour came when we watched a T.V. musical show in rehearsal and also
on the air.
Saturday morning we paid a visit to McGill University. The
chief attraction for us there was the Cyclotron in the Radiation Labora-
tory. This one hundred million volt synchro-cyclotron which is used
in the study of atomic structure was of particular interest to the Senior
Matriculation science students, who were studying it as part of their
course. As it was not in operation at the time, we were able to get a
close look at it and were given an on-the-spot explanation of its
workings by Dr. Foster. VVe also had a look at the Electron-Micro-
scope. We then made a quick tour of the Chemistry building under
From the University we walked to the LaSalle Hotel where we
were treated by Mr. Fascio to a delicious luncheon, complete with a
cake bearing the inscription "Ashbury College Science - 1958"
Our sincere thanks to all those who made the trip possible, and
especially to Mr. Sibley whose tireless efforts made the trip a success.
Those on this trip were Lackey, Rivers I, Ross, Springer, Bishop, Broad-
head I, Chamard, Geggie, Gilbert, Rowan-Legg I and Moore I.
TRIP TO KINGSTON
The second of our Science trips this year took us to Kingston.
Mr. Sibley with the assistance of Mr. jackson took along a group of
Senior students to visit some industrial concerns and some educational
Arriving by car shortly before lunch on April lst, the group im-
mediately proceeded to the Royal Military College where they were
given lunch followed by a tour of the buildings and a swim.. Once
more those who attended were impressed with the smartness of the

Queens. showed us through the University. After seeing the cyclotron,
THE ASHBURIAN I5
a fantastically complex machine, we were shown the many machine
shops in the Mechanical Engineering Building under Prof. Rice.
The next day, IVednesday, April Znd, we journeyed out to the
Aluminum Company of Canada plant and the nearby Aluminium
Laboratories Ltd. Although spending most of the morning at the
Aluminum Company of Canada's plant, it was with difficulty that we
saw all of it. This plant receives the Aluminum from Arvida and
fabricates all kinds of products including foil, pipes, sheets and circles.
The Aluminium Laboratories situated beside the Aluminum Com-
pany has no connection with it. It is their task to discover and better
the forms of Aluminum already used, and to find flaws in all the various
products produced. Mr. Hyde gave us a line talk on the importance
of high results in our studies in order to qualify for work in such
After a short break for lunch, we travelled to the Dupont Co. of
Canada Nylon Plant, where we witnessed the successive stages of the
nylon as it is transformed from the liquid to the fibre. In this plant,
as in the Aluminum Plant, it was noted that a tremendous emphasis
was placed on a harmonious employer-employee relationship, with
great care for safety precautions.
That night, we dined as guests of Dr. Atack, President of the Dye
and Chemical Company of Canada, Whose plant we were to visit on
the morrow. After dinner, we were taken to his home to watch tele-
The next day, our last in Kingston, we visited the Canadian Loco-
motive Company, where we saw some small locomotives ready for
Iran. This plant was working on short time due to a lack of orders.
The Dye and Chemical Co. was our last port of call. At this
neat, compact little plant specializing in food dyes and detergents, we
noted that a dye was made for butter. We also saw the great amount
of work being done on tar solvents, and paper products.
A great vote of thanks goes to Dr. Atack for his many kindnesses,
and to Mr. Sibley who organized the expedition, with Xlr. jackson
and Lackey who did the driving. Those on this trip included Ross,
Springer, Lackey, Sutherland I, Chamard, Rivero, Geggie and Brod-
STUDENT NIGHT AT THE NATIGNAL RESEARCH
On February 28th, a group of students attended this annual night
at which Dr. I. A. Morrision assisted by Drs. Flubacher, Hoodless,
Leadbetter, Rudham and Mr. Reid gave an illustrated lecture on "How
Molecules Behave at Surfaces". This lecture was concerned with Sur-
face tension, the orientation of Molecules at surfaces, with practical
M THE ASHBURIAN
applications of this work. The Lecture was well illustrated with many
demonstrations, and was enjoyed by all.
TRIP TO CI-IALK RIVER
This tour was a fitting climax to this year's trips. It was there
that we were able to co-ordinate all we had seen during the year.
NYe arrived at the gate at 10.00 a.m. on Tuesday, the 8th of April,
after a two hour and a half drive. There we were issued with badges.
In order to get us better acquainted with what we were to see, Dr. D.
Keys treated us to short talk on the fundamental concepts of nuclear
structure and fission, with many clear demonstrations, and slides. From
there we went to see models of the two reactors and of the Nuclear
Power Development, a means of obtaining electricity from the atom,
which is expected to be operational in 1959. Then came the real
treat, that of seeing the NRX reactor in operation. This reactor, in-
stalled in 1947, generates 40,000 kilowatts of energy and is used for
fundamental research, and the production of radioactive isotopes. It
has since been surpassed as a means of experimentation by the NRU
which has five times the power.
After a good lunch in the cafeteria, we set out to see three other
phases of the Chalk River development. The first was the Van der
Graff generator which is used to bombard materials with protons and
Helium-3 ions. A ten million volt machine known as the Tandem
Accelerator will be installed shortly. It will make possible the study
of nuclei of heavier elements. Then on to a lab in which research is
being done on the best way of safely dumping waste radioactive
materials. At present, a type of glass is considered the best prospect.
Finally we visited a lab in which radioactive materials are handled.
This is done by mechanical hands controlled from outside a heavily
shielded room. The Scientists observe the operation through 36 inches
of lead boro-silicate glass. Here we saw eight vials of radium for
medical use, worth about 3100,000. In addition to these laboratories,
we saw the pool test reactor which is used to test the radioactivity of
fuel samples. This is a "swimming pool" type of reactor, that is the
fuel rods are immersed in a pool of ordinary water which acts as the
coolant, shielding and moderator.
The trip was most successful. On this final trip were Ross,
Lackey, Flam I, Rivero, Ince, Brodhead I, Heeney, Springer, Chaniard,

BERMUDA TRIP - 1958
Xlr. jobling made his annual Easter pilgrimage to Bermuda this
year. accompanied by Xlr. Anderson and a cortege of assorted youths
by name: Dries Oosterbaan, Pete Cotton. Bohdan Zaporski. Chas. Flam
and Tony Sugden.
They spent two glorious weeks soaking up sun and entertaining
themselves at the island's c'Hot Spots". As usual there were highlights.
The "college Cruise" was oneg another was motorcycling along the
narrow byways of the island. Klr. jobling demonstrated his culinary
skill by preparing various exotic dishes. climaxed by a giant sea-

The trippers returned sunburned, penniless, but happy. Much
thanks should be given to Mr. jobling for making the trip so thoroughly
THE TRIP TO QUEEN'S UNIVERSITY
Early in November a group of seniors travelled to Kingston where
they toured Oueen's University and watched a football game against
VVestern. The trip was organized by the Ottawa section of the
Queen's Alumni and all the Ottawa High Schools were represented.
Mr. Macintyre, as an old Queen's man, organized the Ashbury contin-
The group was much impressed on their arrival, by the beauty
of the campus. Our wonder mounted as we were introduced to all
of Queen's many facilities for study and recreation, but we were
fairly astounded by the delightful lunch to which we were treated in
After lunch we found our way in groups to the campus stadium,
where we saw the Gaels go down to defeat, but not without first
giving us a Hne display of running, tackling and blocking. At the
game we renewed the acquaintance of many old boys and other friends.
The tour was aptly rounded off by a Tea-Dance after the game. A
very good time was had by all, and, of course, we learned a great deal
about university life in Kingston.
ST. LAXVRENCE SEAVV AY TOUR
On Tuesday, june 3rd., about 30 of the M.L.T.S. boys were given
a special treat by Mr. Rees. VVe were taken on a conducted tour of
the St. Lawrence Seaway and Power Project. After Chapel in the
morning, we all climbed aboard a chartered bus and drove to Morris-
burg and then down the new highway to Cornwall, where we were
shown a movie about the seaway. VV e then picked up a guide Qwith
microphoneb who took us through a tunnel under the shipping canal
to the Robert H. Saunders St. Lawrence Generating Station, more
simply known as the power dam. After being shown this huge struc-
ture, we had a picnic lunch and drove down the old highway, soon
to be flooded, and saw the remains of the towns which have been moved
back from the river. Having visited the new town of Long Sault, we
then headed back to the old road and followed it to Iroquois, where we
saw the control dam and shipping lock. As our tour was then complete
we returned to Morrisburg and headed for home. The trip was very
enjoyable and educational for all of us.

THE ROYAL VISIT
1957 will long be remembered by Canadians as the year that the
Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Ottawa and opened the
twenty-third session of Canada's parliament. But it will be remem-
bered even more vividly by the Ashbury College Cadet Corps, of
which one hundred cadets were privileged in being allowed to line a
portion of the Royal route. XYe were allotted a section of the road
leading out of Lansdowne Park, over which the Royal procession was
to pass on the last day of the visit en route to the airport.
After weeks of preparation the memorable day arrived. VVe were
transported down to Lansdowne Park by bus and then we took up
our positions on the stretch of road. lt was only a short while until
the cheering of the 15,000-odd children reached a Crescendo. Al-
though from where we stood we could not actually see the Queen.
we could hear wave upon wave of frenzied cheering that followed
the Royal car as it slowly drove around the Park. "Q Canadal' and
"God Save the Queen" were sung, Her Majesty said a few words, and
they were on their way again.
The order was given, we came stiffly to attention and then the
Queen's procession slowly drove by us. It was indeed like a page
from a story book.
Ashbury has had a rather full debating year for a change, in
all, we upheld our convictions in three separate occasions, and emerged
as victors on two of them.
Our First debate was in the fall, at St. A'Iary's College, Brockville,
there, Ashbury upheld the affirmative of the motion that Capital
Punishment should be abolished. After much vociferation, Ashbury's
representatives, G. Gale and Chamard, were adjudged to be the
winners. It seems trite to say that a good time was had by all, but the
hospitality of our hosts was truly marvellous, we were at once put at
ease and a sense of friendship prevailed even in the heat of battle.
During the Winter Term, the St. AIary's team visited Ashbury
and, upholding the negative of the motion "That Canada should re-
cognize Red China", was declared the winner. Both the Ashbury -
St. Mary debates were organized on the Oregon style. By this system.
it is not sufficient merely to present one's case. but one is subjected to
a gruelling cross-examination fby the opposition! calculated to make
even the strongest points appear to be trite verbosity. It is sincerely
hoped that we may again enjoy the pleasure of further verbal combats
with St. NIary's next year.
The high point of the debating year was. of course, the Tri-
School debate. held this year in Klontreal with Lower Canada College
TH!-I .-ISHBURInI.Y 21
acting as host. This affair saw Ashbury pitted against l3ishop's College
School on the motion "That the present policy of the Canadian
Government in diverting purchase of goods from the L'.S. to goods
produced in the L'.K. is a sound one". Despite the fact that the Cana-
dian Government denies this is a policy, the motion was hotly contested.
Bishops upholding the afiirmative, established many good points and
managed to establish a sound basis for their intention. Ashbury, how-
ever, also made its points clear, and eventually emerged victorious.
XVe are all looking forward to meeting Lower Canada College next vear
at Lennoxville. i
Much credit for the successes of the two members of the Ashbury
Debating Team, Gale and Chamard, must go to Mr. Spencer whose
timely hints and coaching helped us considerably.
A new innovation this year was a series of round-table discussions
held each Friday after lunch under the guidance of Nlr. Vetter.
Over the year many topics were discussed, ranging from "VVhy
Do VVe Go To Church?" to "Hit Parade vs. Classical" and from
"Age 21" to "Public vs. Private School".
The natural outgrowth of class discussion periods, this series was
most successful and each week a faithful group of students from Grade
X up met to express their views. After a time cunning filled the
questions and the answers were all given in ambiguous terms but, never-
theless we all learned a lot and enjoyed the meetings immensely.
VV e look forward to resuming the group next fall.
POETRY READNG CONTEST
This valuable annual event was held, in the School Chapel as
usual, on Sunday, May 4th, under the same conditions as those of
former years: the reading of a set piece, a selection of the candidates
own choosing, and a "sight" piece.
As no outside authority was available this year, the readings were
adjudicated by Mr. Belcher, who awarded the honours as follows:
Senior: Hutchison, Intermediate: Lynn, junior: Campbell II. Rowe
received honourable mention in the Intermediate competition.
PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST
Unlike the Poetry Reading Contest, this event did not produce as
great a number of entries as last year, nevertheless the quality of the
performances was high - perhaps even superior to the general level
exhibited in previous years, as there appeared to be an improvement
in the spontaneity, conviction and ease of delivery of speeches.
In the Senior Division, Chamard and Gale were adjudged joint
winners. The former expressed authoritative and convincing views
on the subject of the nationalization of medical services, and his well
prepared speech was undoubtedly the better of the two. Gale, on
the other hand, volunteered to make an entirely extemporaneous speech
on a topic which was not presented to him until he had reached the
speaker's platform. The topic - "All wars are begun for commercial
reasons". By virtue of his resourcefulness and quick thinking, he was
Among the intermediates, Haslam, with a well-informed address
on the results of XVorld VVar II, won top honours, with Fidler a close
second, speaking on Stamp Collecting.
Campbell II won the junior event with his excellent speech on the
island of Cyprus.
Messrs D. L. Polk and A. B. Belcher adjudicated the event.
THE HILADMASTERS' CONFERENCE
Perhaps the best attended and certainly one of the most successful
conferences of the Canadian Headmasters, Association was held at
Ashbury on january 6th and 7th. It was the twenty-third meeting of
the organization. Twenty-two headmasters of schools from Victoria
to Halifax, including representatives from the United States, attended
the Conference. One of the group was Mr. C. L. O. Glass, presently
head of B.C.S. and formerly Ashbury head.
Mr. Perry, as President of the Association, provided a full pro-
gram for the two days. Six meetings were held, among other matters
under discussion were the Brakeley Survey, an investigation of the
potential endowment by business firms of Canadian Independent
Schools, and the problem of Discipline, which was attacked by a dis-
tinguished panel under the chairmanship of S. F. M. VVotherspoon,
Q.C. The guest speaker at the School on the first night was Dr.
D. K. C. MacDonald of the National Research Council who gave a
most impressive talk entitled, "A Physicist looks at the Humanities."
A service was held in the Ashbury Chapel, and the Conference
reached a fine climax with a Dinner at the Rideau Club at which the
principal speaker was Sir Saville Garner, the United Kingdom High

MATHEMATICS CONI"ERl'fNCI". - 1958
Hillrield School was, this year, host to the Alathcmatics Committee
of the Headmasters' Association of Independent Schools. The Schools
sending representatives were Appelby College, Ashbury College, The
Grove Lakefield, Lower Canada College, Pickering College, Ridley
College, Trinity College School and Upper Canada College. i
The guest speaker was F. R. Britton, B.Sc., .Nl.A., Ph.D., Chairman
of the Mathematics Department, NIcXIaster University. Dr. Britton
gave a detailed and most interesting History of Alathematics, leading
up to our present day approaches to the subflect. Ile placed con-
siderable emphasis on the importance of the understanding of language
for success in the understanding of mathematics and science.
Following Dr. Britton there was a general discussion and question
period, most of which dwelt largely with the mathematics at the senior

at which an invitation was extended by the delegates from Lower
Canada College to hold the next session at their school. This was

delegates were guests of the Headmaster at his residence, then to the
School Hall for lunch.
After lunch the delegates spent two hours at the XYestinghouse
Laboratories, where the time spent was most enjoyable and extremely
profitable. At the end of this tour the group was treated to coifee and
Everybody agreed that the day was Hl0SIi enjoyable and rewarding.
The Annual Conference of the Teachers of English at Indepen-
dent Schools took place on Easter Monday, at Oakville, with Appleby
College in the role of host and Mr. H. C. Hardwick in the Chair.
The Conference was attended by twelve representatives from
eight of the Independent Schools: Appleby, Ashbury, Hilllield. Lower
Canada, Ridley, St. Andrews, Trinity, and Upper Canada, many valu-
able discussions were developed.
Guest speaker at the morning meeting was Aliss Cordon. a super-
visor of the teaching of English in the Public School. She described the
current methods in the primary grades of the State School System.
These techniques emphasized the use of phonetics in the promotion of
spelling and reading skills.
Mr. john VV. Dodd, vice-principal of Riverdale Collegiate Institute.
Toronto, was guest speaker at the afternoon meeting. He outlined
several interesting classroom methods in use in the secondary grades
and his talk proved IHOSI stimulating.
24 THE ASHBURIAN
lt is alwavs extremely valuable to hear the views of these expe-
rienced teachers who give up their time to attend these meetings, and
their contributions are much appreciated. Another extremely valuable
function of the conferences is the opportunity to discuss, in general
svnod as it were, the individual problems of those who are working in
the same area of education.
The members were most hospitably entertained by the Headmaster
and Staff of Appleby, and our particular and cordial thanks go to
Mr. Hardwick, who convened and conducted the conference.
As a result of the hardworking and benevolent activities of the
Mothers' Guild, we have been provided with a number of luxuries and
near-necessities which would not otherwise have come our way.
Among these benefits were: the Hne new School Flag which was
dedicated and hung in the chapel during the fall term, a set of ten
handsome leather armchairs, cash sums for the setting-up of various
bursaries. The funds for these donations were provided largely by
proceeds of a Bingo and Fun Night, a Cake Sale, and a Clothing Sale.
Also, much of the artistic success of the decor of the School Dance
was a result of the advice and help given by these ladies - notably
Mrs. Rivers and Mrs. Rowan-Legg - to the prefects.
Our most cordial and sincere thanks to them for their interest
and hard work.

The aim of our classes in music for the junior School at Ashbury
is to create intelligent listeners and to try to help the boys gain a
fuller understanding and enjoyment of fine music. It is a matter of
gradual approach. Doctor johnson once said, "VVhoever wishes to
attain an English style must give his days and nights to the study of
volumes of Addison". To the would be lovers of music one might
say, "XYhoever desires a faculty for musical appreciation must study
the masterpieces of the great composers."
THE :1SHBL'Rl.-IX M
The youngest boys are given ear and rhythmic training bv means
of songs, rhythm band, and records. They are encouraged to express
their ideas about what they hear. The older boys learn how music
came about, by the association of the folli tunes of the dilferent
nations, by the recognition of simple musical forms. and bv the studv
of the music and lives of the composersg and, when possible, there
correlation between this knowledge and a knowledge of geographical
and historical backgrounds.
lYe hope that next year we shall be able to arrange reeitals by
talented young students for the benefit of the whole school.
HIS year's formal was a huge success. Held on April llth in the
new Argyle auditorium. it featured lYilf Steabner and his band. For
almost a week before the big event, the Prefects had been carefully
decorating the hall, and the result was certainly worth all the effort.
Catering was done by KIorrison-Lamothe, who transformed the gym
into a Parisien cafe with Chinese decor: Xlany small tables were
scattered about and decorated with Ashbury centre-pieces.
It had been feared that moving the formal back from the Country
Club to the School would detract from the event, but these fears
proved groundless. Needless to say, the dance was the best ever held
at the School, and a great deal of credit must go to the organizers, and
decorators who made the night so successful.

1,'1'HoUGH the record of this year's first team was not quite as
excellent as the records of the teams of the past three years, we
did manage to win the B.C.S. Old Boys' Trophy for the fifth consecutive
year by blanking B.C.S. in an exciting game by a 7-U score. The
second B.C.S. game and the L.C.C. game were both cancelled this
year due to the widespread attacks of the flu.
The team won 4 out of seven games this season, the losses in-
flicted by the Old Boys, Nepean Seniors and Arnprior Seniors. The
victories, beside the Bishops win, included a decisive one over Lake-
field, and a double victory against Stanstead.
At this oint a tribute should be aid to our coach, Mr. C. B.
an ' aa ' w
Tiny Hermann, to Whom a great deal of the credit for our success
must go. In the Hve years that Mr. Hermann has coached the Senior
team at Ashbury, we have won 29 games in 36 starts. This is quite
an outstanding record in any class of football. The thanks of the team
also go to Mr. F. E. Macintyre, our faithful assistant coach this year.

many key tackles on defence. As captain, was fine leader and
provided great inspiration for his team-mates.

on the line both offensively and defensively. Can always be
counted on to produce top effort. Kept the team in high spirits
in all the games.
ARNOLD I-End CSubD-165 lbs.-Although he did not play too often,
he remained in high spirits. His height made him a good pass-

SECOND FOOTBALL TEAM
The second football team this year showed a remarkable reversal
of form over previous teams, and went on to establish a second team
record for recent years by winning four out of seven. The spirit of
the team grew rapidly as the season progressed, and in the late stages
was outstanding. The main force behind this most gratifying re-
surgence was the new coach of the team, Mr. Boswell, who came to us
from Stanstead College.
The team started oi? rather slowly, losing their initial three starts.
llowever, in the fourth game, against The Grove School, they sur-
prised everyone hy pulling out a I9-7 victory. This win proved to be
just what the team needed to start the ball rolling, and they went on
to win all their remaining encounters in strong fashion. lffasily the
most thrilling game was the ctimc-from-behind upset victory over a
highlv rated l3.C.S. team.

E were fortunate this year in being able to open our soccer
season with a pre-schedule warm-up game with the Ottawa
Valley Cricket Council. lYe soon discovered that these cricketers were
also masters of the soccer ball. Although they blanked us 4-0, this
game gave us much valuable experience in seeing good soccer played.
and also pointed out our weaknesses. As the season moved on. many
of the new members of the team gained much experience and con-
fidence - they admirably filled the positions left vacant by the depar-
ture of many of last year's top players.
Geggie was elected captain and carried out his duties in this regard
with steady and effective enthusiasm. However. due to a back injury
he was forced to give up playing near the end of the season. and
Powell I, the vice-captain, took over his duties quite admirably.
Special mention should be given to our rookie goalkeeper. "Yank"
MacLaurin. Under Mr. Anderson's special coaching he rapidly became
most etlective in his capacity of keeping out goals. Some praise should
also be given to Oosterbaan and Twaddle I for their steady play at all
times during the season.
Next year we have high hopes for an even better season. Many
of the younger players will still be with us and should improve con-
XYC would like to thank on behalf of the team our coaches, Mr.
Ci. P. jackson and Mr. R. nl. Anderson, for their willingness and ability
to correct our mistakes, and for giving us above all a sense of team-

HHN the 1957-58 edition of the senior hockey team began to
practice in the last few weeks of the fall term, everyone con-
cerned with the team could sense that there would be a definite improve-
ment over the record of last year's team. Much to everyone's delight,
these hopes were more than satisfied, as the team ended the season with
an excellent record of eight wins, live draws, and only two losses in
the fifteen games played. This mark is the best that an .-Xshbury
senior hockey squad has boasted for quite a number of years.
The team opened the season in fine style by blanking lYinnipcg's
St. jolm's-Ravenscourt School 3-0, swamping .-Xlymer ll-1, and over-
wheaning Shawville, 1958 Western Quebec High School Champions,
by a score of 6-2. On the trip to Lake Placid. NX., both games -
42 THE ASHBURIAN
against Northwood and Lake Placid High - were drawn by a 2-2
score. In this vear's Tri-School play, we drew with Lower Canada
3-3, but lost to l3ishop's 6-2 on the latter's home ice. CL.C.C. swamped
l3.C.S. 9-0 to win the Tri-School crown and the A.C.O.B.A. Cupj
Following a heart-breaking 5-4 loss to St. Patls, the team shook out of
rieir mid-season slump to down Lakefield 6-3 in an exciting game.
The remaining four games of the season were won in powerful fashion.
Durin the first half of the season, over 802, of the scorin was
handled by Flam and Molloy. However, in the latter stages, especially
during the five-game winning streak, the scoring became extremely
well gmaianced, with Rice, Franklin, the Gambles, Quinn, and Berridge
increasing their goal totals considerably.
llndoubtedly, one feature of the season was the prolific scoring
of centre Dave Flam, whose mark of 24 goals and 20 assists must have
estab ished some sort of a record. The goaltending of Goodis, and
the defensive play of Franklin, Berridge, Snelling, and Sutherland cer-
tainly deserve high commendation, along with the Hne all-round play
Much of the team's success must go to our new coach, Mr. D. M.
Boswell, whose spirited and enthusiastic efforts led the team through
many a tight spot. Dal Brodhead is also to be commended for his
hard work and loyalty to the team in his managerial capacity.

HE 1958 ski season was eagerly looked forward to, as the team was
composed entirely of veterans. These were john Rowan-Legg
fCaptainD, Vic Rivers 1Yice-Capt.J, Ross Southam. Gerry Robinson,
and john Heenev. A highlight of the season, however, was the re-
markable development of two of last year's juniors, Vic Gnaedinger
and lan XlcLaren. These two boys became senior team members and
are counted on to form the nucleus of future Ashbury ski teams.
The first engagement of the season was the annual meet with our
friendly rivals from Northwood School. which took place at Lake
Placid, NX., on the weekend of February 2. L'nfortunately the team
was without the services of Captain john Rowan-Legg. who had
suffered a sprained ankle in a race just a few days previously. Never-
theless, we jumped to a big lead in the downhill and slalom. with
Gerry Robinson finishing second in both events. The following day's
cross-countrv, usually our strongest event, proved to be our downfall
as Northwood managed to capture most of the top positions, with the

exception of Vie Rivers' fourth place finish. As a result, we lost the
meet by a very narrow margin.
On the following weekend, the team travelled to Mt. Tremblant
for the Tri-School meet with I.,.C.C. and B.C.S. This time we were
minus Ross Southam and Gerrv Robinson, said fact almost guaranteeing
last place, but we managed to put up a fight. Outstanding in this meet
were Ileenev, who placed highly in both downhill and slalom, and
Rowan-Legg, who was second in the cross-country.
Our third and most successful performance was in the Dalton
lllood Memorial meet, which we won again this year over such power-
ful Ottawa schools as Fisher Park, Lisgar, St. Pat's and Glebe. In the
first event, the downhill, we fell slightly behind in the standings, with
Southam being our highest man. Ilowever, Rowan-Legg, Rivers, and
Southam took second, fourth, and seventh places respectively in the
cross-country event. which we won by over 60 points. XYC managed to
THE .-ISHBURI.-IN I9
cling to this lead in the slalom, in which Southam placed second, thus
winning the coveted trophy, emblematic of Ottawa and district school
skiing supremacy, for the second consecutive year.
The last, and most eagerly awaited meet of the year, was the annual
Red Birds' school ski championships at St. Sauveur. We were blessed
with magnificent conditions and completely dominated the first event,
the cross-country, by capturing Hrst, third, fourth, and ninth positions.
However, we were later disappointed to hear that the downhill was
not going to be held on the trail on which we had practised for a
whole afternoon, Instead, a giant slalom and a slalom race were held,
in which we lost sufficient ground to drop into second place in thc
combined standings. After the meet we attended the Red Birds'
banquet, at which Southam, Rowan-Legg, and NIcLaren received
"jack-Rabbit" awards for their showings.
The team is indebted to Klr. Xlacintyre, without whose organiza-
tion and assistance the season would not have been the success that
GAIN this vear, a group of about fifteen boys played squash regu-
larly during the winter term, making use of the courts at the
Minto Club while the senior hockey team practiced on the rink. All
members of the Held progressed quite steadily under Nlr. Powells
expert coaching, and, althought no outside competition was held, it is
hoped that in the near future the calibre of play will be high enough
to enter some sort of competition.
For the first time, a squash tournament was held. and Xlr. Lee
Snelling, an old boy of the School, very kindly donated a handsome
prize for the winner. After some very close and exciting preliminary
matches, Farrugia emerged as the winner of the Tournament.

fine season. Although the team dropped three games, it is generallv
agreed that the opposition was stronger than in previous vears.
Since basketball was originated at Ashburv six vears ago bv Xlr.
A. H. N. Snelgrove, the calibre of plav has improved bv leaps and
bounds, and should continue to do so even more in the future. .'.luch
of this success has been achieved by the great determination and
Courage of each player that has taken part in basketball.
This vear's team oxves a great deal of thanks to Xlr. R.

His vear the annual boxing championships were held in the gvui-
nasium on Fridav night. .Nlarch 1-ith. As usual. the bouts were
witnessed bv a large crowdbof parents. Uld Boys. and friends. Twentv
boys emerged as finalists after approximately two weeks of elimina-
tions. and they easilv proved to be as courageous and dgtermined as
the Hnalists of recent vears. The bouts were verv evenlv matched.
and ail but two went the full distance of three rounds. i
The referee was Nlr. D. Xl. Boswell. and the three judges were
Nlr. A. B. Belcher. Nlr. A. H. N. Snelgrove. and Xlr. D. L. Polk. Tlie
timekeeper was Alr. A. D. Brain.
4 Bout No. 1:-junior Lightweight.
l xi. s. Polk v.s. D. P. Blame.
i The opening bout of the evening brought together IXYU expe-
A rienced boxers in Polk and Blaine. However. Blaine had too much stvle
A and reach for his pluckv opponent. and was- awarded the decision.
' Blaine was also awarded the Grant Cup for displaying the best ring-
craft on the program.
Bout No. 2:-junior Flvweight.
A. Robertson v.s. Al. Peterson.
A ln this iight. the two sixtv-pounders put on an interesting display
of boxing. Robertson seemed to show more perseverance. and
gained the nod of the judges.
THE ASHBURIAN 57
Bout No. 2:-Intermediate Middleweight fChester-Master Trophyb.
M. lfarrugia v.s. M. R. Devlin.
This bout brought together Farrugia. the old veteran, and Devlin.
a promising newcomer. This was a hard-fought battle throughout.
and Devlin emerged victorious.
Bout No. 4:-junior Bantamweight.
H. Pyefinch v.s. tl. V. llearne.
In this fight. the two small boys put on a great show of
stamina and determination. Many punches were thrown. but Pyefinch
threw a ,little harder than Hearne, thereby gaining the decision.
Bout N0. 5:-junior Middleweight fPattison Challenge Cupj.
C. E. A. M'olfe-Taylor v.s. XY. Booth.
Booth started out very strongly in the first round, but seemed to
tire in the latter stages. M'olfe-Taylor threw more punches in the last
round to win the decision.
Bout No. 6:-Intermediate Heavyweight fEvans Challenge Cupl.
R. Powell v.s. D. Garcia.
This bout was definitely one of the more interesting ones of the
evening, as both boys were extremely hard punchers. Powell easily
won the first round, but Garcia opened up in the second round with
vicious left uppercuts which bothered Powell for the remainder of the
fight. Garcia took the decision, and Powell was awarded the Rhodes
Trophy for being the best loser of the night.
Bout N0. 7:-Senior Heavyweight fliauquier Challenge Cupi.
C. Moffatt v.s. R. M. Franklin.
This heavyweight battle of the seniors was the feature bout of
the evening. Both boys fought very cautiously from the beginning.
making it an entertaining battle to watch. Moffatt had the advantage
of longer arms, and this proved to be the deciding factor as Franklin
could not get in close. The winner, Moffatt.
Bout No. 8:-junior Featherweight fAshbury College Cupb.
XV. M. Rogers v.s. R. Addleman.
This fight was easily one of the best of the evening. as it featured
one of the most skillful junior boxers seen around in some time in
Addleman. Rogers, however. was not to be daunted as he put on a
spirited defensive display. It was a close decision, but Addleman gained
Bout N0. 9:-Senior Middleweight fFauquier C'iallenge Cupl.
S. G. Gamble v.s. A. D. G. MacMillan
This was a very wild fight. with much clubbing and swinging of
arms. McMillan showed a little more accuracy in his punches. but
this failed to slow up the sturdy Gamble. However. upon examina-
tion of Gamble's battered nose, the referee awarded MacMillan a T.K.O.
in the second round.
lflfllf Nu. IU:-Intermediate Lightweight fhdvvards Challenge Cup?
Nl. Feller v.s. T. D. Arnold.
ln the last fight of the evening, Feller, in the finals for the third

ever. Arnold is to be commended for a most courageous display.
liellcr was awarded a T.Ii.O.
HIC school's annual cross-country races were held this vear on Satur-
day morning, April 26th. The various courses were' in quite

nj THE ASHBURIAN
Again this year, the tennis field was divided into two sections -
the squad,'under the direction of Nlr. Anderson, played at the
Roelacliile Tennis Club, while the "B" squad played under Nlr.
.Iobling's direction at Rideau.
As usual. the tennis team did not have too much time to practise,
due largely to the impending cadet inspection. However, the calibre
of tennis improved greatly in practically every case.
The highlight of the tennis season was the trip to Lake Placid,
NX. The team, consisting of Flam l fCaptainl, Southam I, Brodhead
I, Nlinnes, Fattal, and Gamble I journeyed across the border on the
weekend of Alay 17 to play against Northwood School. However,
Northwoods superiority soon showed up and we lost all nine matches.
The return engagement was played in Ottawa two weeks later, and
although the Ashbury squad had improved greatly, we again failed to
win a match.
ln our own school tournament, after quite a number of exciting
elimination matches, Flam l, Alinnes, Brodhead I, and Southam I emerg-
ed as semi-finalists. Flam downed Nlinnes 6-1, 6-0 and Brodhead upset
Southam 6-3, 6-2 to reach the final round. On the last day of term,
Captain Dave Flam downed Dal Brodhead 7-5, 2-6, 6-1 in an extremelv
close and exciting match to win the R. G. Devine Trophy as sch06l

Although the grounds were ready for play by mid-April and only
one Saturday CBrockvilleJ rescheduled because of rain. the weather
for almost the whole of the 8 week season was unfavourablv cold.
The resulting lack of practice was evident and scores were generally
low until the last 2 inatchesg in these, the 100 was put up for the loss
of 6 and 8 wickets respectively. There were many individual scores
in double figures but none reached the 30's and our limited howling
attack seldom had enough runs to work with. Only 3 old colours
were available and with the promotions from the L'nder-Io l5ield
supplying less than was expected in the way of runs and wickets it
was soon evident that the win column would not have many entries.
Chamard, Arnold, Lackey. and Reid usually managed to sCorC
THOSE of the runs. and Arnold lquickish right-arml and lnee lslow
lefty shared 60 wickets at moderate Cost with useful support fI'oi11
Lackey, Reid. and Sutherland.
64 THE ASHBURIAN
An early match against New Edinburgh should have been drawn
after a generous declaration, but Cathedral and Kingston proved to
be far too strong. And having dismissed Brockville for a mere handful
of runs we then couldnlt produce enough ourselves in reply, the
bowling of Allen having too much sting for a majority of our batsmen.
XVe again readily defeated our atomic friends from Deep River and
began to feel that perhaps the tide was turning. However, Khazzam
as Captain of BCS produced another of his dashing innings, giving
onlv one difficult chance before he had scored and that was the match.
In the return fixture in Ottawa, the School fought back more stub-
bornly but runs were slow in coming and BCS won in comfortable
The season ended on a brighter note with an easy win over Old
Ashburians and a somewhat hilarious one over the Staff. The resump-
tion of this latter match, after 2 or 3 blank years, proved to be popular
and j.M.R., F.A.V., and G.P.j. showed power with the bat while F.E.M.
had plenty on the ball.
Arnold managed to win both the Wilson trophies for batting and
bowling by narrow margins, Ince shared the Darnill award for bowl-
ing, and Lackey fielded well close in to take many an important catch.
Colours were re-awarded to Arnold, Reid, and Sutherland and new
ones went to Chamard, Lackey and lnce.
UNDER 16 CRICKET "
Things looked very hopeful for a lively 1958 season as 6 players
from last year's team were available again, as soon as weather permitted,
vigorous practice was started in the nets.
VVe opened the series of games with a fixture against Sedbergh
lst XI, the match being played on our own ground. The day was
sunny, the wicket was fast, and we batted first. But the team received
a shock when our leading batsman, Powell, had some bad luck and
was out for only one run. However, this gave Morrison an opportunity
to demonstrate his ability and he quietly made 35 runs. We were
finally all out for 72. Sedbergh replied with 40 of which Heward
made 16, Ashbury thus winning by 32 runs. The entire day was
most pleasant and we were happy to have secured a win in our first
On the 16th of May we made our annual trip to Lennoxville,
meeting BCS in perhaps the most tense game of the season. Again
we were very fortunate in having excellent weather for the game.
BCS batted first and scored 71 runs, lVlcLernon's share being 28. We
replied with 103, thus having what looked like a safe lead on the first
innings. Both Powell and Morrison were out cheaply but Reiskind at
No. 6 hit out for a valuable 26. ln their second innings BCS took up

the challenge with a will and in a comparatively short space of time
had scored 79 runs. KlcLernon this time being undefeated with -H.
This meant that Ashbury went in to bat needing either to get +8 runs
or to play out time. We did neither. The sad fact is we were all out
2 runs short when the last wicket fell with the last ball of the last
over. The tension at the end was pretty well unendur.ible.
The following week end we played BCS on our own ground.
Both teams were "out for blood" and the prospects for an exciting
day were good. Wie put BCS out for 60 and the chief Aslilmri'
bowlers, Tucker and Farrugia. are to be complimented on a tine display
of accurate bowling of a good length. Ashbury replied with IHS.

contributions to the total. This time Ashbury were determined not
06 THE ASHBURIAN
to let the game slip out of their grasp: with good bowling from
Powell and Tucker supported by tight fielding BCS were sent back
for 58 of which Bell and XIcLernon got 20 and 19 not out respectively.
This left Asliaiiry only 11 runs to get for a decisive win and Farrugia
and Powell quickly knocked them off to settle the issue by 10 wickets.
Our final game of the season was a pleasant fixture at Montebello
against Sedbergh. Our rivals batted first to make a total of 53 runs,
.XTeLaughlin being the star by getting 26 of them. But Ashbury
replied with 91 CPowell 4-3, Farrugia 275 to win the match handily.
As we had an hour of time left, it was decided that the teams would
split it, giving both of them a chance to hit out and have some fun.

excellent sportsmanship displayed by his team.

oc will be interested in the following which Xlajor XX'oods dis-
covered some weeks ago. lt is an extract from "The llub and
the Spokes", an account of Ottawa by Anson A. Gard written in
"Ashbury College. lf one may judge by the prominence of its
shareholders, and the high standing of its pupils, there are few colleges
in Canada that will equal Ashbury, on Argyle Avenue. which. under
the able Headmaster, Rev. Geo. P. XYoollcombe. and his competent
assistants, is growing, or rather has grown to the limit of its capacity.
lt mav well be called 'The Rugby of Canadaf To say, 'I was a

Ottawa This annual event at the School was yet another in the series
of successful reunions held during the past few years. A welcome
innovation was the moving of the Corporation meeting from the
afternoon to the morning to allow Old Boys time to watch the
Big Four football game.
Ashbury's day began at 9:30 with the traditional two football
games against B.C.S. Our First Team defeated Bishops by the score
of 7-O, thus ensuring our hold on the B.C.S. Trophy for one further
year. In some respects a more satisfying victory was made by the
Second Team, 13-9. It was their first win over Bishops since 1953.
68 THE ASI-IBURIAN
The Corporation meeting was held at 11:30 ANI in Argyle. The
Headmaster gave a report on the progress of the School. This was
followed by general discussion and the election of the governors
for the ensuing year. -I. S. Irvin, 1928, and C. G. Gale, 1934, con-
tinue in their respective posts as Chairman and Vice-chairman. New
members of the Board this year are R. S. Morris, 1915, and VV. E.
Next came the registration of Old Boys. This was followed by
welcome refreshments and luncheon, the usual excellent and varied
repast provided by the Nlothers' Guild. A very large number of
parents and Old Boys crowded the gym for this informal gathering,
and many a happy individual reunion resulted.
The day ended with the Buffet Dinner Dance held at the Royal
Ottawa Golf Club, this time a formal gathering, but none the less
The Old Boys Chapel Service C"He who would valiant be 'gainst
all disaster . . . To be a pilgrim."J was made particularly impressive
by the dedication of the School Flag. S. Irvin read the lesson and
the School Chaplain, Rev. E. G. Kettleborough conducted the Service.

U THE ASHBURIAN
OLD BOYS' GAMES
FOOTBALL The Old Boys Football game was played November
18, and a large squad turned out. I have just counted thirty-two who
posed for the picture at half time. Some pretty high calibre material
was on hand, and the Old Boys won, 6-0. Congratulations! Mr.
Perry entertained at Ashbury House after the game.
HOCKEY This game was played on March 15 and was a close and
exciting one. The Old Boys led for the first two periods. This
should have been the end. Forty minutes of hockey is enough for old
men like Irvin, Grant, Hiiddrington, Seed, Scott, Heney, Zilberg, and
the Rhodes brothers, VVedd, VVells, Gill, Mulkins, Knowlton, Drew,
and probably several others whose names did not get into the news-
papers. The School scored four times in the last period and won the
the game 5-3. Andy XVells, 1955, once again made the pre-game ar-
rangements. There was a pleasant reunion at the Head's house after
The annual Old Boys Cricket Game brought out more than the
required number of enthusiasts. There was good weather and good
feeling and a good game which gave a narrow victory to the School.
Details of the game will be found in the Sports Section of this magazine.

This is Bob's fourth year at the school and his second in the prefect
body. He has proved himself, not only as Captain of the Boarders, but
also as a stalwart member of the first football team. As captain. he led
the first basketball team to a very successful season. In the spring
term. Bob plays cricket with keen enthusiasm. "Lack" has done a
wonderful iob again with the school band, which after a slow start
has made great progress under his direction. Everyone will be glad to
see him back at the school next September.

Bruce, or "Bunky" as he is more commonly called. is completing his
eleventh and final year at Ashbury. For the second year in a row. he
ably held down the position of Captain of the Day Boys. Sportwise. he
played first football. and coached the second "netball" squad. He also
found time to run his usual second in the cross-Country. Cadets. how-
ever, were his dish, as he led the school corps through a highly success-
ful year. Next fall Bruce is off to Carleton University, and to him and
to his hot-rods we wish the very best of luck.

MIKE BERRIDGE-f'P1'ide rules my willw
Mike is finishing his fifth and final year at Ashbury, much to everyone's
regret. He has been a hard working and dependable member of the
prefect body for two years, and is looked upon as a pillar of the
school by us all. Mike is outstanding in athletics, being a first colours
man in both football and hockey. He also was on the school gym team
which demonstrated during the inspection. On the military scene, Captain
Berridge ably assisted the corps in his position as "2ic", but he didn't
particularly like to shout out commands, afraid no doubt, that it might
be harmful to his melodious vocal chords. Next year Mike hopes to be
employed by either the Kodak people or by the govemment. Whatever
he does we are sure he will be successfulg our best wishes go with you,
DAVE FLAM-'fSfweet Hudson, lofueliest village of
Dave "Pepsi" Flam has spent his last year at Ashbury, and a very
successful one it was - not only academically, but athletically as well.
Dave played football, and led the hockey team to a year of considerable
success - he also led the tennis team! We regard the loss of prefect Flam
as a serious one, but we are sure he will be successful in the Faculty of
Science at McGill next year. The whole school wishes you the best of luck
PETER GEGGIE-UN 0 man is true to mankind unless

Our newest prefect, Peter was appointed to the ranks this Easter. In
the field of sports he made his presence felt by captaining the senior
soccer team to a successful seasong unfortunately, a back injury re-
stricted his athletic activities for the remainder of the school year. Pete
did, however, take time out from his studies in the spring to blossom
forth as an expert cricket coach for the sixth Held. We aren't sure of
just what he plans for this summer, but he will probably be found in
a certain milk-bar in Wakefield, P.Q. All of us wish Pete the best of
luck next year, as he pursues the career of medicine at Bishop's
JOHN VVILLIAM HEENEY-"All play and 710 fworlc,

Both academically and athletically, "Teens" has enjoyed a colourful year
at Ashbury. An invaluable end on the football team. he was an equally
important member of the illustrious ski-team. To discover his prowess
in tennis, just ask "Pancho" himself. One of Rockclifl'e's leading
socialites, john is noted for his way with the fairer sex. He is also
admired for his somewhat abbreviated school day, viz. no cadets, only
six subjects etc. john plans to further his education at Neuchatel,
Switzerland, next fall, and we wish him every success there.

Freddy is one of the old timers in the school as well as in the pr:-ff-ct
body. For two years now lic has carricd out his duties conscientiously
and has been a stalwart member of the pr:-fi-ct's common room. Aca-
demically, Fred has few problems, despite all his pre-examiuatiou worry.
In the world of sports, we find a tough line-uiau on thc grid-iron, an
avid skier in the winter and a colours man in cricket. lu addition to all
this, he manages to lead Connaught House onto the fields ot battle.
If the finals come off all-right Fred worft be back next ycar. Ilavc a
good summer, Fred, and try not to crumple any more fcudi-rs while on
that forthcoming social visit to Cleveland!

This is Dave's third year at Ashbury, his first as a prefect. He played on
.f the first football team for two years and did a great job on the line.
As a member of the hockey team for the last three years. he haw been
a steady defenseman. Spring sees him playing tennis. As Quartermaster
of the Cadet Corps, he was outstanding in handing out uniforms too
small, and boots too large. He has done the school a lot of good so
far, and we hope to see him back next year.

John, who has been with us for four years. was made a prefect at
Christmas and in recognition of his ability on the football fi'-ld he was
awarded the Tiny Hermann Trophy, for the most improved player. Al-
though the unfortunate victim of a sprained ankle mid way through the
season, john remained the enthusiastic Captain of the first ski teain.
This spring he won the senior cross country race and is traiuuig with
the track team. john intends to return next ycar to further his education
in the Upper sixth. YVe wish him every possible success.
AMONG Tl-IE GRADUATES
Bob has been with us at Ashbury for four years and during this time,
his amiable nature has endeared him to us all. At the beginning of this
year, Robbie was appointed head day-boy monitor, during football season,
he was iudged the Second Team's most valuable player. Bob was also an
active member of the Cadet Corps. We will be sorry to see him leave,
but duty calls. Next year Bob will be 0E to serve Canada at C.M.R.
Best of luckl
Don, one of the Buckingham Boys, is completing his third year at
Ashbury. Besides being a room-captain, "Jet" was a member of both
the senior hockey and football teams. He recently moved to Fonthill,
which, he proudly tells us, is east of Toronto. This summer Don is
headed either for Montreal or Baie Comeau. Next fall? Who knows?
But whatever he does, we wish Don the best of all possible luck.
Al came to Ashbury from Glasgow, Scotland, five years ago. Since that
time he has proved himself a good student and a willing helper.
Bo-bo, as he is affectionately known, was a drummer in the band and
a member of the social, skiing and cricket fields. This summer Al is
smashing off to the old country to carry his studies to a "higher level"
at St. Paulis. Watch out, England, here he comes!
Known as "Havana", he has been with us for only one year. He has
played Soccer and Basketball. Hailing from Venezuela, he is keenly
interested in sports cars, and will probably become a sports car driver.

Gilby has completed his second successful year here and next year will
see him attending McGill in his home town of Montreal: He won his
second team colours in hockey, and was an active member of the
senior cricket team. Academically, Robin has done very well and is
popular with both staff and boys. Good luck at McGill, Gil!
Dan, after six years at Ashbury, is leaving for Carleton University. In
his time here he has played senior football for three years, unfortu-
nately he missed most of this season due to a knee injury. Nevertheless
he was Connaught's strong man in all sports. After coming close for the
last few years, Danny finally topped the middleweight boxing division,
thus achieving a hard worked for goal. He holds the very distinguished
post of president of the Senior Common-room and is also a room-
captain. We wish him the best of luck at Carleton - Auf Wiedersehen,
Chris came to us from Toronto last fall and starred on the senior
football and basketball teams. He also managed to win the senior heavy-
weight boxing championship. Next year Chris is retuming to his old
school. We shall be sorry to see "the Gimp" leave, for his sense of
humour, if sometimes a bit off-beat, nevertheless kept everyone in

Ashbury will come to rest after their ordeal with the booming base of
Al's electronic contraption. He has been a member of the 2nd Foot-

has also been an able photographic editor of the Ashburian, taking
many photos, and collecting more. Good luck in the medical profession.
The Boy from Buckingham. john has been with ns for two years, this

Readover was held in the new Assembly Hall in Argyle, on
Casting back over the year that was ended, the lleadmaster
reviewed our achievements in terms of the material, the academic and
the athletic. He said that in each of these areas he felt that we had
considerable cause for satisfaction. The new addition to Argyle had
been started and finished within the school year. ln spite of an early
setback by the lingering epidemic of infiuenza, we had concluded thie
year with an unusually high number of .Nl.L.T.S. - rectimmendations
based on sound results in class work, and had earned somewhat more
than our share of succesess in games. He commended the outstanding
achievements of the Cadet Corps this year, and thanked all those who
had contributed to these accomplishments by the School.
An innovation was provided in the presentation at this ceremony
of athletic awards won by individual members of the various teams.
CPreviously these presentations have been made at the Closing
Finally, the Headmaster expressed his regrets that four members
of the Staff would not be with us next year. He wished success to
these members in their future work and a happy holiday to the School
I-IEADNlASTER'S REMARKS AT
I should like to say a word to those of you who are graduating or
who will not be returning to Ashbury.
This occasion marks the end of an important stage in your life.
Many of you have been here a great many years. Some of you came
here as very small boys - not too well eo-ordinated. rather fearful.
and in some cases very spoiled.
You have been through a course of rather rigorous training and
are now leaving as young men prepared for the next and a more
difiicult stage of your life. I am confident you are ready for this
change and will make good progress, good citizens and be a credit
to your old School and those who have faith in you.
Ashbury is grateful to you for your interest and loyalty. During
your years here, you have contributed a great deal to the School's
success. It is better because you were here and it will always re-
member you. ,
I hope you will press forward with honour. courage and kindness
and uphold the finest traditions of Ashbury.
God grant you health, happiness and success in the days to come.

THE .-ISHBL'Rl:l.X' .sf
Sports day this year was rather more exciting than usual as several
Track and Field records had already been bettered in practice and the
boys were anxious to see how many records would be swept aside. Big
things were expected of our two tall Field event bovs - -lohn Arnold
and Tony Sugden. and we were not disappointed' Tony gave the
outstanding performance of the day in clearing 22 ft. T ins. in the
Broad ,lump which must rank him among the best juniors in Canada
for this event. With this distance he broke his own school record by
more than 2 ft. Ile also went on to win the 100 yd., 220 yd.. -I-lo yd..
and 120 yd. Hurdles, all in very fast times. These wins 'enabled him
to pile up enough points to win the Fleming Challenge Cup as the best
Senior athlete in the school. john Arnold also acquitted himself well
in bettering his own Senior Discus Record with a good throw of 1 17 ft.
and he also Won the Senior Javelin with a distance of 162 ft. 2 ins..
some 3 ft. short of his own record. One other Senior who deserves
special mention is john Rowan-Legg, who took command in the
distance races with wins in the 880 yd., one mile. He also won the
Senior cross-country championship. In winning the 880 yd. he clipped
some 6 secs. off the existing record, to return the excellent time of 2
mins. 9.3 secs. In Intermediate events two boys carried off most of
the honours between them. Rodney Howland took four iirst places
and one second to win the Stanley Wright Cup as top point scorer.
In so doing he set a new mark for the +40 yd. with a time of 57.2 secs.
The other outstanding runner was Peter Rowan-Legg who placed
second to Howland in several events and also chalked up a new record
in winning the half mile with a time of 2 mins. 2+ secs. Outstanding
amongst the junior competitors was Robin Powell who took honours
in all three of the running events. One final record to be broken was
in the junior Cricket ball in which Allan Sherman threw a distance
of 87 yds., 3 ins.
VVoolleombe House gained top honours for the day with Alexander
House second and Connaught House a rather poor third. Some slight
consolation to Alexander House was in the fact that they managed to
snatch wins from XVoollcombe in both the Senior and junior Relays.
In summing up, the weather was line, the results were liner and
co-operation from officials and groundstalgf was the finest.

To some, the belabouring of the weather theme in the reporting
of these ceremonies may seem trivial. To others, who have sat packed
into an assembly hall in a humid atmosphere, with an indoor tem-
perature of 903, it will not. And so we say with fervent thankfulness
that the closing ceremonies of Ashburv's Sixty-Seventh year were
conducted outdoors, in green and pleasant surroundings - do rain, no
torrid heat, not even a gentle dew of caterpillars from the overhanging
boughs, punctuated only by the sleepy drone of jet aircraft practising
for the Air Show.
Mr. S. Irvin, Chairman of the Board of Governors, speaking to
an assemblage of approximately two hundred and fifty boys and six
hundred adults, expressed his gratification in the progress and ac-
complishments of the School during the current year, he spoke of the
completion of the Argyle wing, which provided much needed accommo-
dation, he paid tribute to the work of the Headmaster, Nlr. R. H.
Perry, and his Staff, and expressed regret at the departure of four mem-
bers of the Staff.
Mr. Irvin was followed by the Headmaster, who read his report
on the School year and quoted favourable comments from the Depart-
ment. He summed up Ashbury's basic ideal - to provide "the best
direction and training for the young men who before long will be
taking their place as important leaders in the community and in the
world". He then called on the Head Boy. Xlervin Sutherland, to
read the Valedictory, the text of which appears elsewhere in these
At the conclusion of the valedictory the guest speaker, Ur. A.
XY. Trueman, Director of the Canada Council, was introduced. Dr.
Trueman's address was, in the opinion of many of his listeners, one of
the most interesting comments on education to be heard here in many
years. He said, in part, that knowledge in itself had little value. "It is
rather the basic material for reflection, for judgment, for criticism, for
speculation, for the development of principles. Knowledge must not
be allowed to remain inert in the mind, it must be put to work by
detecting false logic and wrong assumptions, deductions and inferences."
Among those who presented prizes were: His Excellency, XY. R.
Crocker, High Commissioner for Australia, Xlrs. Gordon Bowen, on
behalf of her husband, United Kingdom Trade Commissioner, Xlr.

opportunity of paying us a visit when he is in the city.
At the conclusion of the ceremonies refreshments were served on

Q1 THE ASHBUIUAN
Delivered b y ,llervin Szztberlmzd, Head Boy
During mv ten vears at Ashbury I have heard many Valedictory
addresses. At' intervals during those ten years I have heard Head
Bov's speeches based on the words of the School motto, "Probitas,
virtus, comitasu, "Honour, courage, grace", treated both singly and
collectively, I have heard the School Prayer used as a valedictory
theme, I have also heard the School Hymn used as a valedictory theme.
Since these matters have been so well taken care of, this year I will talk
on some of the memories and highlights that I can remember from past
years. This goes back a long way!
The Hrst thing that comes to my mind is the third day I was here.
I was a very homesick boy. I wrote home a four word letter, "Come
and get mein. IV ell, I got over that feeling, now the letters are still
four words but read, "Send more money pleasew. My mother wonders
which is the more upsetting.
In a school boy's life games play a big part -they stand out more
than the daily academic grind. I think perhaps my biggest sports
thrill came in 1956 when Bishops, our great football rival, came to
Ottawa for the second of a two-game series, with a 33-14 lead from the
first game played at Bishops, and we won by a 33-9 score, winning the
cup for the third straight year. I am happy to believe that that put
a little extra colour into the already colourful Old Boys' Day.
There is another experience which makes me feel exceedingly
proud - I might even say conceited. It did not take long to Hnd out
that Ashbury offered many unexpected opportunities, but I had never
dreamed that among them would be the opportunity to become a
movie actor. But that is exactly what happened to me. I appeared
in a school movie - along with such distinguished stars as George
Maelaaren and Bill Eastwood. I am sorry to say that I don't believe
it was ever released on more than two occasions, and the reason why
it never became a real box-ofhce draw, I've never been able to under-
stand-unless the screen wasn't big enough. In any event, Ashbury
put me in the movies and I can honestly say that I don't believe that
any other school in Canada would have been so enterprising.
The biggest surprise of my school career came this year, when
I was asked to be Head Boy. I was so amazed I almost tripped over
my feet when I went up to thank Mr. Perry. I have no regrets, and
I hope I have done my job in a reasonably satisfactory way.
In all these years the School has taught me many things, but the
most important, to my mind, is the sense of responsibility, to other
people as well as to oneself. I have also learnt the meaning of sports-
manship, win or lose. Other small but important things are manners,
THE :1SHBL'Rl.-IX V5
politeness to older people, and the meaning of truth. AX very important
thing is to have the courage to he able In tell the truth even though
the consequences may he uneomfortahle.
Now, in closing, l would like to thank my fellow prefeets for
their eo-operationg also the room captains and all the senior hots. I
would like to thank Nlr. Perry and Xlr. Brain and all the staff for their
help and understanding. And so with no attempt at oratory, and in all
sincerity. I say that, l only hope l have done for .-Xshhury a small
fraction of what Ashburv has done for me. One more thing. Xlr. Perrv.
I would like you to aeicept this picture for the School. on hehalf of
this vear's graduating class.
Q6 THE ASHBURIAN
THE LEGEND or TANTE PIERRE
It had been snowing all day, but inside the cabin it was cheerful,
and despite the cold wind whistling through the crack under the door,
it was warm. Sitting beside the fire I was moved to reflect what a truly
horrible day this would be for travelling. True to melodramatic
form, at that same moment there sounded a knock on the door. Be-
fore I could get there to open it, a small bundle of snow pushed in and
leaned against the back of the door catching its breath. XVhen it had
stamped off its white covering, I saw that it was jules Tremblay from
up the trail. Now jules didn't visit often, but when he did it was
indeed an occasion for reioicing, for besides being the best trapper
in these parts, he was undoubtedly the best story-teller in the area,
and what better way to spend such a day than listening to one of
jules' fascinating tales. After the usual backslapping and exchange of
local news, jules lit up his strong Htabac canadienw and, grasping a cup
of whiskey blanc Hrmly in one hand, began the following yarn:
lt was over two hundred years ago that Pierre Maltais bought that
island down near Berthier, and went to live there with his young Wife.
They had just been married, and although Pierre was forty-five, both
were determined to make a go of things. Pierre worked hard, and
within Hfteen years had a prosperous farm and a fine family. As the
boys were growing up, he could now afford to take life more easily,
but he was a man of the soil, and the thought of doing nothing was
repugnant to him. So he kept on working, working so hard in fact,
that he eventually died of a heart attack. One of the sons had by this
time married, and now brought his Wife to live in the old house with
his mother. As she was still a young and attractive woman, the grand-
children could not get used to calling her L'grandmere", so she became
simply "Tante Pierre". She lived to a ripe old age, and when she
died, was buried on the island.
The farm continued to prosper for a while, but none of his sons
had the same touch as the original Maltais, and finally the farm became
unproductive and the family moved back to town. Over a few genera-
tions, all the various business ventures which the Nlaltais undertook
failed, and so reduced to poverty, the last of the line was forced to
return to the island. VX'hile digging a new well to trap the mineral
water with which the island is supplied, the last Nlaltais made an as-
tounding discovery: the body of a woman, obviously dead and buried,
but now completely petrified by the minerals in the soil. After much
searching in the family records, it was decided that this must be "Tame
Pierre". The young man was of two minds, for though he ought out
of Christian decency to rebury the old girl, there was no doubt but
THE ASHBURI.-IN 97
what there was a great deal of money in such a find. llad he been
slightly less poverty stricken, it is likely that his less mercenary in-
stincts would have won out, but as it was he determined to set "'l'ante
Pierren on exhibition and make his fortune by charging admission to
view this singular corpse. llc took up business in town and soon
was attracting large crowds. llis bankroll increased and evervthing
seemed to be going all right, but as soon as they saw him waxing
wealthy, all his former creditors began to hound him for monev.
XYhat's more, the public soon lost interest in "Tame Pierre" and he
was left with no income. ln desperation, he took his own life, and,
because church burial was denied suicides, was buried on the island.
The creditors disposed of all his possessions except "Tante Pierre", for
such a commodity, they were hard pressed to find a buyer. Finally
a travelling circus offered to take her otf their hands. And so, for
the sum of ten dollars, "Tante Pierre" was sold to the circus. Who
knows? She may still be doing the circuit".
jules tapped out his pipe and rose to leave. The snow had stopped,
and there was no wind, but a deathly cold had settled over the
cabin - I thought of "Tame Pierre" and of the young man who had
now replaced her on the island.
CNote:-The Legend of Tante Pierre is adapted from an old French
Canadian folk tale which is still told by the habitants around
Berthier and Sorel. The island itself is still there, and any villager
who is up on his folk lore will gladly point it out to the visitor.J
The night was dark, but through the dark
Came sounds of battle and, more near at hand,
The random Hash of heavy guns. The Hun
XVas breathing down our necks and as we ran
Along that road we knew that death was near.
At last the sand, and sinking down upon
The shingle, we thanked God for His grace. But still
The rumble of the guns rang in our ears.
And how relieved we were to see at dawn
The fleet so near at hand. the sleek white sides
Of pleasure craft contrasting strangely with
The grey of larger ships! All day they came
And through the night. until we all were home.
But, oh, how many stayed behind,
To mark our passing with their graves?

ROYAL ROAD T0 EASY LIVING
Every teenager dreams of making himself enough money to re-
tire on before he is twenty-one - myself included. The make-a-
fortune craze' hit me when I was about fifteen years old. The method
that to me seemed the easiest and quickest was that of entering contests
that offered large prizes.
As beginner's luck would have it, my first attempt was moderately
successful, I won a second-prize, a clock-radio for a twenty-five word
statement on a soap powder. Although I continue to waken to a most
unmusical bell and not, as the sponsor suggested, to "the sweet strain
of your favourite radio programw, my fate was decided by that victory.
Encouraged by my success in the soap contest, I transferred my
talents to coffee. In no time at all I became a coffee connoisseur. I
brooded over coffee morning, noon, and night. I won again, but not
the first prize of a trip to New York. The electric home coffee mill
was worth twenty-five dollars, the contest sponsor declared, but it
wasn't worth twenty-five cents in a home where my mother buys
XVhen the Simonize Company sponsored a contest, I had to buy a
can of paste wax, even though my father always takes the car to the
minute car wash. I persuaded my father, in the end, to buy the wax,
but somehow I never got around to cleaning the car after I got the
label off the can. Unce again I had to take second place and received
a cheque for ten dollars - giving me a net profit of 38.54, deducting
postage and the cost of simonize.
Contesting gets into the blood, and after a while the victim finds
himself writing entries without much regard to the usefulness of the
prizes. VVhen I heard of a competition for naming a thoroughbred
filly, with the filly, five hundred dollars, and tickets to the Kentucky
Derby as first prize, my dreams seemed to have come true. Before I
even entered the contest, the animal seemed to be mine. So I decided
to find a place I could board the mare after she arrived. A friend of
the famly lived on a farm in the valley and oh, happy coincidence!
owned a couple of race horses. He agreed to take care of Calamity
jane CI had settled on this as my winning entryj for nie.
But before I could even enter the contest, I needed qualifiers -
labels from Kentucky Club Tobacco.
A quick survey of the familyls and friends smoking habits was un-
rewardmg. ln the end a teacher of mine was the one who supplied
me with my wants and gave me two Kentucky Club labels.
It was pretty difhcult to select another name from the ten or twelve
that were buzzing around in my mind. I muttered a brief prayer for
guidance and selected Calamity -lane and Gloregal.

XVhen the judges gave the prize to "Delphidessa" I drowned my
disappointment in hot coffee. Next day a cheque from a shampoo
company cheered me up a little. Une of my jingles had won twenty-
My downfall came soon after that. I went all out to name the
Ajax Brownies and scoured the kitchen and all the neighbours' kitchens
as well, for empty cases of the cleanser. I submitted forty-seven high-
calibre names of remarkable variety, and won nothing. I
Crestfallen by the encounter, I was easy prey for the random re-
mark of a friendly neighbour. As the woman handed over the dog
food labels, she said, "My Charwoman enters contests, and you should
see the things she wins, television sets, refrigerators, automatic
washers .... "
For a brief second hope Hickered feebly in my defeated spirit.
Then the kindly woman added - "The joke about the whole thing is
that the woman never even went to school".
MISSILES IN THE SKY
The sky was once a lovely place,
IVith stars and moon and sun,
Then man aspired to outer space
Being weary of bomb and gun.
First rockets from a launching site
Here hurled against the foe
Then man resolved to end the light,
But more he wished to know.
The years went by, man yearned for more,
The earth was small but yet
The universe he would explore,
If a satellite he could get.
Russia was first to launch a moon,
A "Sputnik" and "XIutnik" too,
America followed. though not too soon.
And still there is much to do.
Vl'ill man enjoy this outer space?
Or will his knowledge kill?
VVill he destroy the human race,
His yearnings to fulfil?

A TRIP ON A FISHING BOAT
In the summer of 1955 while I was staying in VVhitby, England
I had the experience of a fishing trip in the North Sea. VVhitby, a
small town on the north-west coast of Yorkshire, thrives on its fishing
and summer tourist industry. I had in the past been introduced to the
Skipper and crew of the small keeler 'gPilot Me II". I had hung around
the wharf constantly when I was out of school, and I had been allowed
to roam over the fishing boats without being too much in the way.
My grandmother had introduced me to a few of the sailors and on
the whole I got very friendly with some of them. The 'gPilot Me",
the ship I became attached to, had a terribly nice Skipper and one
day he asked if my brother and I would like to go out with him at
night, crab and lobster fishing. VVe were thrilled by the prospect of
going out and all the details were arranged.
At one-thirty one morning we were awakened and got up, shiver-
ing from the cold. Wie dressed quickly and warmly, and had break-
fast. Then, in the dark, we set out to the boat pier. VVe arrived there
and after some difficulty, as there were many boats tied up, we found
the Pilot Me. Then we waited until the Skipper came down. A
short while later we were climbing down the ladder and jumping onto
the deck of the gently swaying boat. The rest of the crew arrived
and we shivered with excitement as the powerful engine was started
and the ropes cast off. I went up in the cabin-house with the Skipper
and slowly at first we made our way cautiously out of the harbour.
Once we were out in the open sea, we headed south, in the
direction of Scarborough. The crew were in small bunks in the focisle
where a dim fire was glowing. By the time we got there they would
be up and ready though. It was cold and dark, and we were quite
glad to arrive at the crab and lobster grounds, an hour and a half later.
There are four rows of pots set and the boat goes up one row collecting
the pots and down it again dropping them off, rebaited.
XVhen we got there the Skipper found his buoy marking the be-
ginning of the first line of pots and then the work began. First, a
man got the end of the rope and untied it from the buoy. Then they
began hauling in the pots. The Skipper steered slowly along the line,
with the engine turning slowly over. On one side of the ship a man
pulled in a pot and opened it. Then he passed it across to another
man who removed the crabs and lobsters and measured them. I-Ie
then threw the small ones back and graded the others in different
boxes. Another man took the now empty pot and took off the stale
bait, put some more pieces of fish in and stached it in the bow. The
less valuable crabs were thrown into the hold. while the lobsters had
their claws tied by a man who also graded them. By the time the end
of the line was almost reached the bow was piled high with lobster
pots, and the men's hands were wet and numb. VK'hen the end of the
THE ASHBURIAN 101
line was reached, the Skipper turned the boat around and went hack
slowly while a couple of men dumped the pots overboard. The end
was then again secured to the buoy.
This process was repeated on all four of the lines, and in the
meantime the skipper was checking back to XYhithy on the radio.
VVhen all was completed it was well after day-hreak and hy about
9.30 we were finished. The men went hack to their hunks, and the
Skipper sailed for home.
The return trip was uneventful, except Ilhlt l was allowed to steer
the boat for a bit, but it was so difhcult that l soon gave it up. At last
the green harbour light was sighted and, as we entered, the banks were
lined with many tourists who came to watch the fishing boats come in.
The day was not over yet, however, for a lot of work was yet
to be done. TVhen we moored, the crabs were put in boxes but were
first sorted, and the dead ones were thrown away, except for a few
I took home to boil. The crabs and lobsters were taken away in boxes,
and the crew left for home. But the ship had to he cleaned and
scrubbed, and we stayed behind with the Skipper and did it. Then
the boat was tied down, and we thanked him for the exciting trip and
went back home, thrilled by the voyage and almost sad to leave the
The crabs and lobsters that were caught on that voyage were
shipped all over England and the British Isles for somebody's meal.
Recently the Pilot Me Il was damaged when it attempted to enter the
harbour in rough seas. The ship was thrown against the north wall
and although no one was hurt the boat was badly damaged and had
to be towed into drydock by the lifeboat. But this gallant little boat
has been out in many storms and it won't be long before it is again
going Hshing in the North Sea.

THE LIFE AND LEGEND
Charles Charleston Charlemagne St. Charles
VV as wont to utter fearful snarls
VVhen by professors he was pressed
To note how England had progressed
Since the galumtuous, gory days
Immortalised in Shakespeare's plays.
For him no transatlantic flights,
Ford motor cars, electric lights,
Or radios at less than cost
Could compensate for what he lost
By chancing to coagulate
About five hundred years too late.
Born in the only days for him
He would have swung a sword with vim,
Grown ginger whiskers on his face,
And mastered, with a chain and mace,
Men who wore chain-mail on their chests
Instead of little woollen vests.
Eton and Uxford failed to floor
The spirit of the warrior:
Though ragged and bullied, teased and hissed,
Charles stayed a medievalist,
And even when his worldly pa
CRegarding him with nauseaj
Condemned him to the dismal cares
Of sordid trade in stocks and shares,
Charles in Top Hat and jaegar drawers,
Clung like a young leech to his cause,
Believing, in a kind of trance,
That one day he would have his chance.
At last he got his opportunity
To show the public he wasn't batty,
With what a zest he did prepare
For the first meeting Copen airll
XYith what a glee he fastened on
His visor and his morion.
He sallied forth with martial eve,
Prepared to do. prepared to die,
But not prepared - by Bayard! not
For the reception that he got.
Over that chapter of the tale
It would be kind to draw a veil
Let it sufiice that, in disdain,
Some hecklers threw him in a drain.
And plodding home. all soaked inside,
He caught pneumonia - and died.
His will was read. Ilis father learned
Charles wished his body to be burned
lVith huge herioc Haines of Ere
Upon a Roman funeral pyre.
But Charles' pa, sole legatee,
Averse to such publicity.
Thought that this bidding might be done
VVithout disturbing anyone.
And, in a highly touching scene,
Cremated him at Kensal Green.
PURE THOUGHTS IN THE CEMETERY
Oh, the beauty of the graveyard!
Silent mounds in tidy rows
Dignity of stone and marble
Freely here the ivy grows.
VVorms have cleansed all evil thinking
From the heads of those who lie
Now devoid of earthly passions
Quietly beneath the sky.
How I love to wander often
In this place so still and pureg
Meditating on the corpsesg
Shutting out the world's allure.
Sobered. chastened. by my visit.
Filled with onlv one desire.
Longing . . . hoping . . . Nlr. Jackson

Hunting season! The most wonderful time of the year for a boy
of sixteen. I, too, am a teenager and await it just as eagerly as
Christmas. But in this world there is nothing perfect. Even hunting
has its bad points, such as the shooting of people instead of ducks and
partridge, and worst of all meeting something that is too big for your
calibre rifle or shotgun.
It was seven o'clock on Saturday morning on the first day of the
season as Pete, my partner, and I parked the boat by the rocky shore
of Lake Amikougami. Our objective was ducks which are plentiful
at Lake Kenogami, five miles cross-country from Amikougami. We
took some food, our guns, and hit the trail. The morning was hazy
and calm, as we walked up the trail.
All of a sudden I noticed that the trail was marked by what seemed
to be extra large horses' hoofs. In addition to this, I noticed that
the tail of my Irish setter stood straight up, and deep down in his
throat he was growling "moose"! I had heard before from old pros-
pectors that this forest was full of bears, deer and moose, and that these
were their habitations. I could have met a deer or a bear, but with
moose it was different. To make matters worse, this was mating
season, and at such a time a moose can be formidable.
I was scared. Beads of sweat rolled down my neck, but I went
on. I took a look at Pete's face and I knew that he also realized the
situation. But he too was stubborn, and we marched on. As we
rounded a cliff, there he stood - standing six feet high at the shoulders,
with a monstrous pair of antlers. His mane was bloody, his eyes were
red and there was a foam on his mouth. These were bad signs. He
had just been in a iight and was in a terrible mood. He meant business.
Cautiously he advanced, but I felt as if my feet had been glued to
the ground. Finally, I got them loose and with a blood curdling yell,
which made the moose pause for a moment, I dashed to the nearest tree
and climbed it like a cat. I looked at Pete, but he was nowhere in
sight. I was getting worried, but then I noticed him behind me on
another tree. My dog, his tail between his legs, darted up the hill
as fast as his four legs could carry him.
The moose advanced to the tree within steps of my rille. Now
the gun was just about under his feet. This was too much. I couldn't
let him destroy my new rifle, so I drove a rotten branch at him.
It hit him square on his big ugly nose. Instead of infuriating him,
however, it made him thoughtful, and he wandered off a bit to scrub
on a young sapling.
This gave me time enough to climb down, grab my gun and climb
back up twice as fast. I fired a shot into the air. He raised his head.
I fired another two above his head. This was too much for him, he
THE ASHBUR1.-IN 105
ran into the bush plowing everything down in front of him. When
we were sure that he was gone, wc climbed down shaking with fear.
VVe went straight back to the boat looking back every once in a
while. There I met my dog who turned and charged at me with joy.
Thus ended my first day of hunting small game. When moose season
opens, I might meet my friend again, but then l hope to have a
powerful enough gun to save myself from climbing trees.

As I approached this isle of dreams
My cares I soon forgot
The School, the home, the cricket quad,
And all the men that taught.
The sea was blue, the trees were green,
My heart soon leapt for joy:
A boat in the sea, a house in the sand.
A small, dark native boy.
The coral gleamed like drowning fire,
There was scent from every tree,
You'd wonder how God could create,
Such land, such air, such sea.
Now back to school we all have come,
To cricket Held and quad,
To leave Bermuda and her charms
To her people and to God.
IYe're told it's very good for us
To run, to jump, to play about
The blood goes coursing through our veins
And chases all bacteria out.
So forth we struggle after school
Armed with wickets. bats, and balls
To sport upon the cricket fields
And peace descends upon the halls.
At six we all troop back again
Slightly puffed, but still the quiet game A
VVith supper upmost in our minds,
Tomorrow will be just the same.

PUBLIC SCHOOL VS. PRIVATE SCHOOL
In the minds of the students, at least, there is no doubt which
system of education is superior. It is natural that those attending
a state school would uphold it to be the better while those at a private
school would maintain that system to be superior. Obviously, both
systems have a great deal to recommend them.
The greatest difference between the two systems is the extent of
control that the school maintains over the student, and the amount of
spare time left at his disposal. A state school boy is only required to
attend classes and to complete his night assignment. Once these two
things are finished, he can do as he pleases - so far as the school is
concerned. On the other hand, the schedule of a private school boy
is carefully planned for him and he has comparatively little time to
The results are that a state school teaches a boy to become self-
reliant, whereas the private school tends to produce boys who are not
experienced at organizing things for themselves, and who are perhaps
not adept at standing on their own two feet.
On the athletic side, both schools provide widely different pro-
grams. The state school usually sponsors many major and minor
leagues for each of the various sports, but as a rule only the better
athletes are good enough to play on these teams. The obvious result
is that a great many boys go without any form of exercise whatsoever.
Private schools, on the other hand, compel everybody to take part
in some activity. Many people oppose this system, believing it to be
harmful to force someone to do something against his will. The
important fact, however, is that for every one boy who dislikes any
form of sport there are a great many mediocre sportsmen that would
like nothing better than to participate, but abstain because of shyness
or embarrassment. XVhen a whole group is taking part, though, there
are bound to be others at least as bad, and probably worse, at games
than themselves. The place on the team naturally goes to the person
who most deserves it, but the important thing it that everyone has an
equal chance, and everybody takes some form of exercise.
Both the private and the state schools largely base their disciplinary
systems on the idea that a boy with a little authority becomes more
trustworthy and dependable. ln accordance with this principle, 1116111-
bers of the student body look after most of the discipline outside of
class. These student disciplinarians take a tremendous load off the
masters' hands in this way.
ln a sense, the most noticeable difference between the two methods
of education is the polish that a private school imparts to an individual.
lt is the consideration of this refinement that no state school can ever
give, and it is this refinement which parents, when debating whether
THE ASHBURIAN 107
to send a boy to state or to private school, often causes them to decide
in favour of the private.
Thus, both schools carry out their purpose effectively. There is
much to be said in favour of, and possibly against, both methods, but
whatever their merits and shortcomings may be, both systems of
education are necessary, and it would be most unfortunate if either
should become obsolete.

The old man slept deeply, his radiant snowy locks falling onto
the sparklingsnow. His face was the face of a kind man. It was
also the face of one who had seen countless seasons come and go
but still retained that hint of youth which never leaves a happy man.
His eyes were the eyes of a child.
This old man seemed out of place in the bleak wood, sleeping
under the shelter of a large tree which offered shelter no longer. The
lush green leaves had long since withered and dropped to the ground
to thinly cover the sleeper, leaving bare the black branches which
tossed in the icy wind. Some snow had been melted by the sun the
previous day, but what unblanketed patches there were had been frozen
hard by the cold night. The sun was just now coming over the
eastern horizon to start her work over again.
VVith the sun came a second man, following the lane which led into
the little wood. From a distance he seemed a tall man, his white hair
blowing in the wind, a closer inspection revealed hard lines set in a
sober face, but the cold sad eyes of the man were his most striking
feature. Two men could not be found who resembled each other less
than this man and the sleeper.
The tall man bent down and shook the sleeper gently, "VVake up
old man! It's time to stir".
"Oh! it's you VVinter", replied the old man sleepily. "Is it really
'4Yes, Spring, it's time you were up and about. As for me, I need
a long rest." Without further comment he lay down in the very same
place from which the old man had risen, and fell fast asleep.
By this time the sun was above the trees and beginning to cast its
warm life-giving rays upon the trees and bushes. The snow, so hard
and cold before, began to soften and melt. The Hrst birds were flying
overhead and filling the air with their songs, the dark, dead trees
suddenly turned to life, and buds began to spring from the branches.
The damp snow was falling away and following the gurgling brooks
to the river beneath. The brown grass was turning green and swaying
in the wind under the smiling sun and green leaves were filling the
trees as the first animal peered from his hole and the old man disappeared
around a bend in the road.

THE .4sHBUR1.4N 111
HE third issue of the junior Ashburian has provoked so much
interest among juniors that I am sure you will agree that we
continue to make progress. The additional literary contributions, more
especially among the Form ll boys, have given the lfditor and his
assistant plenty of work, and this they appreciated.
The "junior Ashburian Week" in the beginning of the third term
was an excellent suggestion, and will now bc a regular vcarlv event.
Realising that any school magazine is only as strong as thc' contribution
the boys make toward it. we are glad to say that the week was a busv
period, the boys who worked hard deserve congratulations and it is to be
expected that their reward will be an interesting literary section.
The high percentage of boys in the graduating form who were
granted an M.L.T.S. should be encouraging to the senior staff. Nlay
these boys continue to maintain their high standard, and in a few
years, when it is their turn to sit for the Senior Xlatric, bring credit to
THE HOLISENIASTERS REPORT
This is the fourth year which I have spent keeping a fatherly eye
over affairs in the Memorial VVing, and it has been by far the most
successful which we have had. I was very pleased indeed to have
several boys tell me during the year just past that they felt it was the
best they had spent at Ashbury. Of course the major credit for this
happy situation must be given to the boys themselves. There has not
been one serious problem throughout the year. XYe have had only
to put up with minor pieces of annoying naughtiness, this is to be
expected, indeed, life would really be pretty dull without these mani-
festations of boyish nature.
A further reason for this happy year has been the conscientious
supervision carried out by members of the junior staff, particularly those
who have lived in the Wing and are really "on duty" twenty-four
hours a day. My thanks to them.
This year we have continued the practice of rewarding the tidiest
rooms each term with an evening dining out and at the movies. Our
decisions were very diflicult to make, as the general standard of tidiness
at the morning inspection bell has been most satisfactory. Unhappily.
the spotless condition of the rooms is not usually maintained during the
Finally, my thanks go to the Xlonitors, who have in general per-
formed their diflicult duties very ably. These boys will be minor
and very unimportant cogs in the big wheel of the Senior House next
year, but I hope they will carry with them the spirit of cheerful co-
operation which they have shown all year.

The third football team had a very successful year under the

We were able to come through with two victories in as many games.
Both games were played at Ashbury against Rockcliffe Park Public
School. The first game was quite rough in the Hrst half, with Ashbury
scoring once. The second half was not as rough and Ashbury started
to move, scoring twice more and converting, all before Rockcliffe
scored. The final score was twenty-one to six.
The second game was not as active, although the scoring was
higher. The excitement was not as great as in the first game because
it was cold the day we played. The score of that game was thirty-eight

are, are apt to be a bit annoyed with the team when this happens.

with Selwyn was a tragedy for us. They beat us by an unmention-
able score. Our second game with them was a hard fought battle.
but not being used to the ice they had, we lost 3-2. Sedhergh put
up a long battle which proved successful: our first game with them we
tied 5-5 but our second battle we lost 3-2. To a local school named

XIIQNIORIAI, XYINCI NOTES
This has been a very full year in the .-Xrgyle lling. The all im-
portant "Best Room" award, with its privilege of dinner out and a
movie, was won twice by Room 3. The third term award has not
been decided at the time of writing. The healthv competition this
award inspires makes the morning routine appear as fun and we look
forward to a continuing "Best Room".
There were two new lYing Nlasters this vear. Xlr. Boswell on
Monday and Mr. jackson Can Old Boyl on Friday.
Mrs. Clark was expected back, but after the death of her sister,
she decided not to come. Nlrs. Hardy, who replaced her, was very
popular and it was regretted that her health would not allow her to
cope with those stairs. Mrs. Mulhall has very competently filled
Mrs. Hardy's shoes and we look forward to welcoming her back in
September. Her television set is a regular meeting place for junior

POETRY READING CONTEST
This year Mr. Spencer bullied, cajoled, talked, pushed and
encouraged a large Held of juniors to enter the Poetry Reading. Mr.
Belcher, the judge, spoke very kindly about some of the contestants
and made me very happy by announcing me as the junior winner for
the second time.
XVith the same interest next year the competition will become
even keener. It was encouraging to see so many of the "sporty
types" enter the contest.
THE JUNIOR BOXING
The "junior Boxing" started off this year with a lot of enthusiastic
boys, from Forms I to Transitus. Friday, Xlarch I+, after a good
many eliminations, was the night of the boxing championships. and
many parents and guests came to watch. There were to be ten bouts,
and a special exhibition match between Reed III and Howes. both of
Form I. I thought that the best Hght of the evening was the Powell
vs. Garcia bout, in which Garcia won but Powell got the cup for the
losing finalist showing the most skill and courage.

HUMANE SOCIETY ESSAYS

Having the Rockcliffe Park Auxiliary's Fair at Ashbury each

TRANSITUS CLASS TRIPS

the Canadian judicial Systemj, C.B.O. and C.B.O.T., the "workings"
of the Chateau Laurier Hotel, C.N.R., the Citizen fwhere we learned

to memorize all the facts given to us, we do gain a lot of practical
I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the people who
helped to organize these trips. Many of them are Old Boys, and for
them, nothing appears to be too much trouble. Thank you.
ST. LAVVRENCE SEAVVAY TOUR
This was quite an exciting tour of one of Canada's biggest pro-
jects. The bus left Ashbury at 10:00 A.M. with a load of boys. On
the way to the project we stopped several times and had lunch by the
Long Sault rapids, which, though it earlier had water running over the
rocks and sand, now it is completely dry in most places except for a
canal running along the side for shipping. VVe left the Long Sault and
headed for the Seaway. Before we reached the seaway, we got on to a
high platform and looked through telescopes at the Seaway from a
distance. Then we left the platform and drove through two tunnels
further on. XYe then walked along the coffer dam, and later crossed
the border into United States which is helping to build the project,
expected to be thoroughly completed in 1959. The first power is to
be delivered this summer.
THE ASHBURI.-IX 120
After we pass customs, we go along the corfer dam and to the
right of us is the gigantic dam. Along the top are huge gantry cranes,
which ride on trolleys. At the foot of the dam are more cranes on
trolleys. Standing in rows near their positions are the mass turbines
which are not installed yet. In the progress of making this dam some
towns had to be Hooded such as Iroquois. Xlorrisburg, Ingleside and
Long Sault. There are control dams at Long Sault and Barnhart.
VVhen the project is finished it is to have I6 separate generating units
and is to have a capacity of 820,000 Kilowatts.
We hope to go again sometime to see the project completed.
A TRIP TO SEE PERRI
Gne day all of form IIIA went to see the movie Perri. We left
Ashbury about 1.-I-5. The main feature, "Perri". had already com-
menced, so we quietly walked in and sat down.
Perri was a young squirrel who lost his father and mother, brothers
and sisters, when a big wind came and blew away their home made of
grass, twigs, and any other thing that they could find.
There was a nasty martin who always wanted to make a leap at
the squirrel. Later Perri found a pal, but he was yery shy. Suddenly
there was a great fire. All the animals ran straight for the stream.
After the fire Perri returned to her home and it hadn't been touched
by the fire. The fire had left a tree across the stream so the martin
could cross. After the fire c'Perri" met her mate and they lived happily

LoNDoN TO OTTAVVA
At seven o'clock one morning in the Euston Hotel, London, we
were dragged from our beds and went down stairs to return the keys
of our rooms. Wie were all very excited, because we were coming
to Canada. Then we went through a door to the station and got on
the boat train where we had a comfortable reserved compartment.
IYe then went to the buffet car to have breakfast.
It was a long way to Liverpool, where we were to take the boat,
and it was very boring by the end of the trip. VVe, on our arrival
there, went into a big room to have our tickets checked. Then we
went up the gangway onto the ship and were shown to our cabins.
After putting our luggage in our cabins, we went up on deck to take
our last look at England. VVe were off!
A tug pulled us out from the dock and we steamed down the
Nlersey. Soon we went to the dining room to have lunch. The next
day went fast and so did the next. On board we had four chimpanzees
and two race horses. I entered the ping-pong contest, and won a
quiz. The only children we had on board were very young. On
March the ninth we reached New York. Most of the passengers were
up at six. There was a beautiful sunrise over the horizon of New
York. VVe went up on deck in the middle of breakfast to see the
Statue of Liberty.
IiVhen we tied up, we had to wait an hour until we could go
ashore. Then another hour passed, waiting in the docks. We hired a
taxi and went to the New IVeston Hotel, and took a room for the
day. After lunch we went to the Central Park to see the animals.
At seven we went to the station and caught a night train. I was very
tired and soon went to sleep. In the morning I opened the window to
see every thing white with snow. Now we were in Montreal! We
stayed with an aunt for five days and drove by car to Ottawa. VVe had
gone nearly four thousand miles, from London to Ottawa.
TULIPS IN OTTAVV A
The tulips bloom in Ottawa
XVhen birds begin to call.
Their colours bright and wonderful
Bring happiness to all.
They bloom along the driveways
They grow so straight and tall.
And people come to see them
And take pictures of them all.

THIS INCHCAPIQ ROCK
Many many years ago near the shores of Scotland there was a
rock. It was called the Inchcape rock. Frequently ships were
wrecked on this rock. In the town lived a man called the Abbot of
Abberbrothock who decided to do something about it. Ile put a
bell on a buoy and attached it to the rock. XYhen the waves were
rough, the buoy hit the rock and the bell rang. This warned the
sailors and they blessed the Abbot.
One day a pirate named Ralph the Rover came near the shore.
It was a calm day and Sir Ralph could see the rock with the bell.
Then he called, "Lower the boats and row me to the Inchcape Rock."
There he cut the bell from the buoy. "Now nobody will bless the
Abbot of Abberbrothockf' he cried.
A few years later Sir Ralph returned with a ship loaded with
plunder. It was night when he returned. A gale had risen, and the
breakers were furious. Sir Ralph cried, "I wish I could hear the
Inchcape Bell." Suddenly the ship hit the rock. It made a hole in the
bottom and water rushed in. As it sank Sir Ralph thought he heard
the bell tolling on the bottom. That's what happened to him.

SIX LITTLE AFRICANS
Six little Africans thought mere walking dull.
One fell from a tree and broke his curly skull.
Five little Africans were eating uncooked fruit.
One of them took sick and died - he ate a poisonous root!
Four little Africans were swimming in the sea,
A crocodile snapped one of them. He kicked, but could not Hee.
Three little Africans were running round a lake,
And lo, one poor unfortunate was swallowed by a snake.
Two little Africans, they grew extremely sad,
One of them took Asian 'flu, and died next day in bed.
One little African was left and had no fun,
He thought he'd go and let you know what all the rest had done.
In winter time the snow comes down
Upon each village and each town,
And all the roofs are covered white
VVith a blanket soft and light.
And then the boys come out to play
All around on Christmas Day,
At skiing swift and skating brave
They come to life as from a grave.
Sputnik, Sputnik how you fly,
Frightening Martians in the sky,
So they go right back to Mars,
But you stay among the stars.
VVhen you are not flying high,
Seagulls o'er the sea do cry:
Can't you go back over land
There to crash in Nature's hand.
Meanwhile, in the U.S.S.R.,
Are people frightened? Yes they are.
Any time now you might crash,
And start a big fire in a Hash.
I saw a little star last night.
It was so far away.
I tried to catch it in my cap
But it was too far away.

THE ASHBUIQIAN 155
IVhen I first came to Ashbury, I heard a few "old stagcrsn griping.
I felt as though I wanted to run away. Fortunately l had enough
sense to stay and see for myself. lt didn't take long to discover that
the gripers were malcontents who would always be that way wherever
they were at school. CSorry, I can't write, "receiving their education"
- they just don't give themselves a chance!
Never have I been so happy in my school life. nor did I expect to
learn that work is fun. XYhen "Old Spencer" started talking about
essay plans, book reviews, classical literature and Ifnglish verse Csic! 9.
I was sure I had been graded too high. I was in mortal fear of
Algebra until "Slatts" introduced it to me and made it seem fun.
Latin and French terrified me until "Polkie" opened these gates to me.
Mrs. VVoodburn and her musical appreciation have almost made me a
fan, and at least I understand now why no junior can dare disturb
Mr. Spencer on winter Saturday afternoons while the Metropolitan
Opera is being broadcast. "Andys" gym periods are a new experience
The culmination of all my new-found love and loyalty was the
ceremonial Cadet Inspection in May. I-Iow proud I was when my
dad, an old army man, said to me after that show, "XYell done, Son!"
My father has been tranferred and I have to start again. Xlay I
leave with a sincere "Thank you, Ashbury."
Each night at the top of the old pine tree
There is a special star
And it shines down just for me.
If I have been naughty throughout the day,
'Tm sorry", it seems to say.
IVhat's my favourite month of the year?
I really do not know,
VI'hether it is in the summer time,
Or when it starts to snow.
Or is it in the autumn
XVhen I go ride my bike?
Or is it in the springtime,
XVhen I so like to hike?

MY DOG, "HERO"
One day my dog Hero and I were going down to the lake to
sail my boat. At one part of the lake it was very narrow. That was
where we were going. The water was very swift there.
VV hen we got there, I tied the rope to the boat and then pushed
the boat into the water. VV hen later I looked for the rope I could
not End it. Then I noticed that the boat was floating down the lake
near the shore. I asked Hero to get it but he backed away. I got up
with a stone in my hand. Hero started to run and I threw it at him.
He turned his head to look at me and the stone hit him right in the
forehead. I said "It serves you right." But I didn't know how wrong
I went back to the lake. VVhen I saw the boat turn around the
small bend, I ran after it and when I was a little ahead of it I jumped
in after it and caught the rope, but a swift current caught me. I was
dragged away from the shore into what was the middle of that part of
the lake. I was swiftly floating under a bridge when suddenly some-
thing caught my shirt and dragged me to a beach near by. Guess
who it was? It was Hero. That was how he got his name. He was
the best dog I ever had.
One day while walking along Sparks Street, I came upon a very
strange and interesting spectacle. A blind man and his seeing-eye
dog were walking along the street past an alley drive-way, when all
of a sudden a truck came rushing out, heading toward the unaware
man at terrific speed. In a moment I thought both man and dog would
be crushed to death beneath the wheels of the truck. Then, in the
split second between life and death, the dog leaped backwards, pulling
his master out of danger. He led him to a lady standing nearby and
in dog language, which most people understand in one way or another,
told her to look after him. This had happened so fast that it took
me a few seconds to regain my senses and realize what had happened
and what the dog had done, and I also wondered what blind people
would do without those faithful dogs.
A little rabbit, so fluffy and white,
I-lopped past our house one winter's night.
His tracks were in the fresh white snow,
But where he went, I just don't know.
THE ASHBURIAN 135
THE TEN CICNT PIIQCIQ
To begin with, I came from a silver mine in Northern Ontario.
An alloy was added to make me hard, and then I was put through a
punching machine to give me my shape. After all that was over,
my other brother, who is known to you as a twenty-five cent piece,
and I were inspected. Then they took us away and put us in a store,
where I was soon given out as change.
Years and years and years went by and I got older and older and
older. I kept changing hands until I thought I had been through every
pocket in the world.
VVhen I reached my one hundredth birthday, I was sold to a
collector for ten dollars. Now I shall spend the rest of my days on a
shelf decorating a collector's collecting room.
The clock struck twelve,
A dark shadow crept
Toward a large house.
The owners were away.
Money and jewels were there!
All this the robber knew.
Silently he opened the window.
Without a sound he crept in,
Toward the study and the safe he made his way.
His eyes were all agleam
VVith the thought of such great riches
So very near his grasp.
But the robber knew not
That in the next room
Another shadow moved toward his.
It was the owner's German Shepherd,
Who was on guard
To protect his owner's belongings.
The large wolf gathered himself
Then, with a thundering growl,
He leapt upon the midnight visitor
As though he had been shot from a gun.
The thief fell on his back.
The dog was everywhere!
But no help came.
Next morning a robber was found
So very cold and bare.
Blood had been flowing everywhere.
