XYe suspect that much of the interest of older Ashburians lies in the memories which the magazine may evoke. This editorial is aimed, primarily, at the interest of the Old Boys. To those who attended the School as long ago as 1914, or even 1952, many images will be blurred and yellow as an old photograph, others will be as clear and vivid as the contacts of today. Klany personalities fade altogether from our recollections, others remain sharp and distinct. No one who was here in Oliver's time will fail to remember him vividly. He stood as a symbol of the foundations of the School. As a tribute to his long years of faithful service to Ashbury, we feel that we may well quote, in part, an article written in "The Ashburiann of 1951-52 by Mr. Brain. "just before the first Great VVar, not long after Ashbury was settled on its present site, there came a young man called Oliver. His manifold abilities were soon revealed, and he himself no less firmly established in the Ashbury community than the School upon its foundations. His functions were innumerable and his title was'never Hxed, for none could cover all his incarnations, but he needed none: to all he was just Oliver, a name of great honour. 'gO1iver's outstanding quality was strength - of body and of char- acter. There are two abiding monuments to his amazing vitality: the magnificent stone wall which circles the northern side of Ashbury. built with his own hands of boulders taken from the property, and the Inter- mediate Field, at one time as much as twelve feet deep with water in the thaw, which he filled and levelled to the fine piece of turf it is today. Indeed, there is no corner of building or grounds which does not bear wimess to his strength and skill. "Complementary to his strength were his kindness, his gentleness. his humour, and his wisdom. No demand seemed heavy, no twist of circumstance harsh, no problem insoluble, when it had been submitted to his unique combination of vigour and shrewd benevolence. Many hundreds of Old Boys remember with affection his tolerance. his help- fulness, and his sense of fun." From the time of his leaving in 1952 to his sudden death in Streets- ville, Ontario, in April of this year, Oliver kept in touch with the School - by occasional cards and letters to some members of the Sta if. by regular monthly letters to the Headmaster, and by annual visits. XYC have many reminiscences of the early days which he wrote since his retirement. and these we hope some day to publish in these columns. Oliver lived and died standing, and where he worked something grew. 111 THE ASIIBURIAN SCHOOL NOTES OPENING DAY On September 7, Argyle's 3-months empty walls again smiled on a capacity enrolment of faces, all smiling in various degrees, all showing eagerness and expectation at the prospect of a new year. In his opening remarks, Mr. Perry stressed above all the importance of academics. He read us some frightening facts and figures to illustrate the horror that university entrance has become. On a lighter note, he also read us a letter from the Department of Education of Ontario congratulating an Ashbury Old Boy on achieving over 802, in his Senior Nlatriculation exams. Looking pointedly at this year's small but select Senior Matriculation group, he expressed his desire of receiving six of these letters, not just one, next August. The Headmaster then announced, to the consternation of all, that any boy desirous of an .XI.L.T.S. this year would have to obtain at least 752, in his general average. The once smiling faces were now glum. To cheer us up, Mr. Perry, at the request of Mr. C. VV. G. Gale, Chairman of the Board of Governors, granted us the traditional Chairman's half-holiday. The school year had indeed begun. STAFF CHANGES At the end of the school year we shall be losing the services of the following staff members: Messrs. B. Beetensen, E. S. Donaldson, M. Galvin, B. Hillary, Povey, M. Sherwood, E. S. Slattery. lixpected to join the staff next year: Messrs. G. E. Adam CFrench, Latin, Spanishlg J. L. Black Clinglish and Historyj, M.

Daratha Qjunior School English, l listory, Mathematicsj. IQNTIQRTAINR I ENT Nlr. Sibley went all out this year to achieve the utmost in movie entertainment. He managed to obtain movies ranging from such comedies as "Carry on Teacher" and "Carry on Nurse", which had juniors and Seniors alike eonvulsed with laughter, to such horror movies as "4-D Klan". Tae many thanks of the boarder population go to Mr. Sibley and to his able assistants, Blackburn, lYhipps, and Wilson. As well as movies there were the annual parties. At the end of October the llallowe'en party was run off. Ashbury's hallowed walls THE .-ISHBURIAN 11 were silent witnesses to weirdly dressed juniors, who were not so silent. On Xlr. Belcher's shoulders fell the honoured, much sought-after post of costume judge. lVhile the party was going on, the older boys, armed with doorknobs and a various assortment of cudgels. patrolled the grounds in a successful attempt to thwart the evil machinations of out- side, and inside, vandals. On November ll, the Old Boys' buffet and dance were held. Reports have it to be one of the best in .Xshbury's history, as noted else! where. On December 13, Ashbury put on the annual Christmas party. The Seniors were attending an end of term dance, thus leaving the juniors to celebrate Christmas in their own way. On hand for the party was Santa Claus, and a magician whose clever sleight-of-hand tricks left the assembled mass agape. On the same night, under the able direction of Klr. Beetensen, the juniors performed "Cinderella" at the Ottawa Little Theatre. The juniors had Worked long and hard at their pageant, and were rewarded with an outstanding success. A great many Ottawa theatre-goers were present, and responded enthusiastically to the performance. The House Dances this year were, as ever, efliciently run by the Prefects. Special thanks go to "Yank" MacLaurin, who took on the dual roles of M.C. and chief organizer.

XVEDDINGS In the School Chapel, on December 3rd, 1960, the marriage was solemnized between Renee Roell, step-daughter of the former Chief of Protocol, Mr. H. F. Feaver, and Thurlow Bradbrooke Smith. A special guest at the wedding of her friend, Miss Roell, was Crown Princess Beatrix of The Netherlands. On December 17, the marriage was solemnized between Victoria VVilmot Brain, younger daughter of the Assistant Headmaster, and john Clyde Garland, the Reverend XV. j. Belford officiating. HEALTH Two years ago, the only epidemic to hit the school was the Asiatic Hu', last year it was the milder stomach Hu', and this year it was the mere 24 hour variety. At this rate, Miss Bray will soon have achieved the impowible-the cure of the common cold. The one big outbreak seemed to be that of broken limbs, there was an unusually large number of broken legs, wrists, etc., and even two concussions. Aside from this, the general health has been excellent. To Miss Bray and her staff go much credit and the school's thanks. VISITORS This year the School has been blessed with visitors of far-flung origin and ideas. Our first visit was on September 15 from a pair of young solicitors, john Unite and Desmond Farrell, recent graduates of Cambridge, lingland. They expressed the desire to hold a seminar with a small group of senior boys. The prefects, numbering ten at the time, assem- bled in Room F after Chapel for what proved to be a lively and quick THE ASHBURIAN 13 give-and-take on the subjects of English law, universities, and drinking restrictions. On behalf of the prefects, it is my pleasure to thank Mr. lVaite and Mr. Farrell for their extremely interesting and informative discussion. ' On October 20, Sir Graham Savage, B.A. Cambridge, came to talk to us. Sir Graham has had a distinguished career in the "education business" in England. It has ranged from a post in the Egyptian Service to teaching at Eton Cyou know-Ashbury's English counterparty to the post of Chief Inspector of the Ministry of Education to the position of Superintendent of Schools in London. Sir Graham also expressed a wish to hold a seminar-type gathering. The entire Senior and Inter- mediate Schools gathered in Rhodes Hall to hear the answers to the questions, both inane and intelligent, of their schoolfellows. The School joins me in thanking Sir Graham for his forebearance with us. Six days later, we were paid a visit of a different sort. On a good- will tour of Ottawa schools, the R.C.A.F. Band gave us a concert "par excellence". The score contained a wide variety of tunes-from light and airy Cole Porter to thundering, M'agnerian Magnet. At the end of the concert the school showed its appreciation in its applause. It only remains for me to restate our thanks to this truly topnotch band. - On the following day, from the VVest Indies came the Minister of Education of Barbados, the Honourable L. St. A. Thorne. Mr. Thorne served the teaching profession for 43 years before being appointed Minister of Education in September, 195 8. He was making a tour of Canadian and British schools, and stopped in at Ashbury for a brief stay. At lunch he said a few words on his interest in schools like ours. On February 27, students of the Senior and Intermediate Schools were invited to attend a short Piano Recital in Argyle Auditorium at 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. by Miss Virginia Dent, a pupil of Miss NVoodburn. Ottawa talent is often overlooked in the continual search for bright young faces. After hearing her play, we look to Miss Dent to remedy the situation. The editor apologizes for any inadvertent omissions in this all too brief write-up. CAREER SERIES Again this year, the practice of inviting men outstanding in their field to give short, but detailed, talks on the qualifications and rewards of their respective fields was continued. These talks have sometimes been a deciding factor in some of the Senior Boys' plans for the future. They have always been very informative, and a great help in broadening the boys' views on Canadian life. This year we heard from: General Nlotors Company Ltd S. F. M. XYotherspoon, Q.C. li. XY. T.

RIDING Dr. Hudson again this year acted as chauffeur to those Wishing to partake in the rough outdoor sport of riding. This year was doubly exciting, since there was not only autumn and spring riding, but also winter sleighing. Dr. Hudson himself supervised the training of inex- perienced riders, and soon had them out there with the best of Ashbury's equestrians. Those who indulged this year extend their sincere thanks to Dr. Hudson and to all his crew at the ranch, and hope that next year and every year his services will be available to the boys. Rl",Clf,N'l' ADDITIONS TO OUR NVAITING LIST New grandsons, Ronnie and Jay, of Mr. and Mrs. R. H. Perry. They are the sons of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Lillie Knee jean Ann Perryl and Mr. and Mrs. VValrcr Zeltner Cnee Nancy Pcrryj. THE ASHBURIAN I5 PARENTS' RECEPTION The three Parents' Receptions this vear were held on the Fridavs, ovember 18th, February 17th, and May nth, one per term as usual. Wfeaving their way through "D" deck, the parents entered A rgvle where they were welcomed by Mr. and Nlrs. Perry, Nlr. and Xlrs. Gale, and by the senior members of the staff. Following brief resumes of the school's progress in the respective terms, given by the Headmaster, the parents took the opportunity to consult the masters. The evening drew to a close over refreshments in Symington Hall. These gatherings, the attendance of which has risen tremendously this past year, have proved fruitful to both parents and staff. NIR. CARVER The Ashburian wishes to extend its special thanks to Klr. Peter Carver, who, as well as taking over the Upper School English classes during Mr. Belcher's illness, has found time to render much valuable assistance in the compilation of this magazine.

Corporate communions were held for the students and staff on Ash XX'ednesday, All Saints' Day, and Ascension Day. This year there were two Servers' Services. On these occasions the servers conduct the entire service with the exception of the absolution and the benediction. which, of course, is given by the chaplain. At the November 6 service, Peter Gillean preached on "Spiritual Discipline", and on February 26, Chris Bodger preached on "Why I Am an Anglican". One of the most colourful and, as the chaplain remarks, "history making" services in the chapel this year was the Confirmation Service on Nlay 9th. ln addition to the twenty-six boys from Ashbury and two boys from St. Bartholomews, three girls from Elmwood were also con- firmed. The rite of Conlirmation was administered by the Rt. Rev.

'KK,F iIBK 20 THE ASI-IBURIAN Un the night of the Confirmation, Chris Bodger, Colin Cantlie, and Robert Dickson were presented with servers' medallions by Bishop Reed for outstanding service. The Choir has prospered these last two years under the leadership of Mr. Godfrey Hewitt, F.R.C.O., and of Mrs. H. S. Dalton, chapel organist. The Choir has continued, more than ever, to add dignity and beauty to the weekly services. The choir boys have visited St. Bartholomew's church in New Edinburgh, and Christ Church Cathedral here in Ottawa. They should be noted for the rare excellence of their performance at these and at the Christmas and Easter Carol services. The boys have done a really splendid job, and deserve a great deal of Credit. Special thanks are due to Messrs. Sibley and Snelgrove, organists, in the daily services, and to Mr. Beetensen, Lay Reader, as Well as to Mr. Hewitt and Mrs. Dalton. Choir mothers Mrs. Reed and Mrs. Thurston also deserve our thanks for their work witj the choir, and we mustn't forget the chapel clerks, Letch, Keffer, and Pottinger, loyal and efficient Hdoorkeepers in the House of the Lord".

SL'ff.'llt'C Tom' to .llontreal As usual, the highlight of the year's science tours was the annual expedition to Montreal. Those concerned, left the school on XVednes- day, Xlarch lst, and travelled by bus to Montreal. After arriving at about ten p.m., we checked into the Y.Xl.C.A., and after a chicken dinner, retired for the night. Bright and early Thursday morning, we began with a tour of the Northern Electric plant. This trip was arranged and conducted, as it has been in other years by Col. Short, the father of an Ashbury Old Boy. Here we witnezwed the awembly of telephone switchboards. The num- ber of component parts and their various sizes, shapes and degrees of mechanical importance was fascinating. Equally interesting was the technical and mechanical skill required to assemble a machine of this complexity. After the tour was Hnished and all questions had been answered, we were treated to lunch in the Company Cafeteria. The afternoon was spent at the firm of Ayerst, McKenna and Harrison. Here our guide was Mr. H. Debreuil. VVe were first shown the Company's new laboratories, which Mr. Debreuil told us, with iustihable pride, were second only to those of the National Research Council. ln these laboratories, research in such fields as cancer and heart disease was being conducted. From the laboratories we were taken to the production section of the plant. Here we followed the manufac- ture of vitamin pills from the chemical formation and mixing of their ingredients to the final bottling and boxing of the pills themselves. VVe were also shown the making of ampoules for hypodermic needles. Here, as elsewhere in the plant, we were impressed by the scrupulous antiseptic precautions taken by both researchers and workers. VVith the trip completed, we retired to the cafeteria where refreshments were served and questions answered. Before leaving, samples of the Company's products were distributed, which, due to the prevalence of colds in the group, were very popular. After supper, we made a tour of Sir George lYilliams University, which is located next door to the Y.Nl.C.A. VVe were shown through the building by Prof. D. Peets, the Assistant Dean. As we were taken through the laboratories and lecture rooms, we found it hard to believe that 6500 students could be handled in such a limited space. After the tour, the rest of the evening was given over to movies. The first tour on Friday was to the Continental Can Company. After reaching the plant by bus, we were greeted by Alt. Brick, and then split up into smaller groups in order to examine the manufacturing processes more closely. XYe were first shown how the cans are labelled, THE ASHBURI.-IN 1, a process which involves two methods. The commoner one is that of placing printed paper labels on the can. A good deal of time was spent watching a variety of cans being formed from the sheets of tin. l.ater we were shown the loading and transportation facilities as well as the administration of the Company. An indication of the Company's business was graphically indicated by looking at the sample room where there were approximately 8000 different types of cans. At the end of the tour we had a fine lunch in the Cafeteria. After lunch, we travelled by car to the Dominion Rubber Company. Here We saw the chemical processing of crude rubber into a number of different articles of various shapes and sizes. Among the products being turned out at the time were conveyer belts and garden hoses. Following a short rest and a swim, we were taken to T.C.A.'s beautiful new Maintenance Plant at Dorval. This trip was arranged by Mr. L. Palmer, and proved to be one of the highlights of the tour. In the immense building which covers thirteen acres, we were first given dinner and then shown almost every conceivable type of maintenance equipment as well as the wonderful facilities available for crew training. Among the fascinating pieces of equipment that we saw were the Hight simulators- exact models of aircraft cockpits used for training pilots and co-pilots. Wie were much impressed by t-he wonderful care taken in the Work-shops to ensure the mechanical perfection of every part of the airplane. Probably the most impressive spectacle was the company's new hangars which were so big that six modern planes can be serviced at once. Here we saw a new DC-8 which was undergoing a complete overhaul, even the seats had been removed. Refreshments were served at the end of the tour, and a tired group made its way back to the "YH for a good night's sleep. On Saturday, the last day of the tour. a visit was made to XlcGill University. This year we had a tour of the Faculty of Nledicine.

This interested us a great deal. Leaving the Medical Building we travelled down to the Chemistry Building. Here we had a short tour conducted by Dr. R. V. V. Nichols. XYe were very fortunate to see an experiment being carried out on Atomic Nitrogen by graduate students. The tour here concluded with a short chat by Dr. XYinkler. From McGill, we went to the LaSalle Hotel where, as usual, Mr. Fascio outdid himself providing us with a delicious steak dinner. This was a wonderful Hnale to our tour. Those who made the trip this year included Butcher, Farrugia I, Monks, Noel-Bentley l, VVilson l, Pottinger, Oxley, Mussells I, Mclnnes. and Gill. We would like to offer our thanks to all the people whose wonderful cooperation made the trip a success and particularly to Mr. Sibley, without whose tireless work the tour would not have been possible. ll. Scic'm'eT0m' - The National Research Council On Monday, March 6th, at 9.00 a.m., we left for our annual tour of the National Research Council in Ottawa. In the morning we were to tour the Montreal Road labs, in the afternoon the Sussex Drive building, with a complimentary lunch in between. Shortly after 9.00, we arrived at the main gate of the Montreal Road labs, where we were met by Mr. Mel Willard, our guide for the 'ISHS N.,3f 43 .E 3 T-'iffjidi Y -if r U:-2 frfeiiv if-aiila f .iff Y N. f, 'QSM ' - . 's , ' , f 1 ' 'V J ' vip' 1 1, , x A -M64 - i ?"' f N 3 I misha- sA.4 4 no-0o.luu THE ASHBURIAN QS morning t0LlI'. XYe immediately set off for the Division of Building Research, a little advertised branch of research, but an extremelv inii portant one, especially considering the fact that construction' now accounts for more than one-fifth of the total national gross product. Mr. C. R. Crocker was kind enough to answer our questions and to show us some of the ten ton "test-tubes" this lab uses. Next was the fascinating Radio and lileetrical llngineering Division. Hfhile waiting for Mr. XY. F. Chisolm to take over the chores of teacher-guide, we went on a short inspection of the N.R.C. museum, where we saw one of the first radios ever made, as well as one of the first home-power supply units. Finally Mr. Chisolm arrived, and he proceeded to lead us through a gigantic room containing millions of dollars of equipment. It was our misfortune that the D.C. generator was not in operation, so we had to be content with just admiring the colossus. XYhen we could take our eyes off it, we learned the fundamentals of its operation, and were shown a few recent additions. Then we went upstairs to see the mag- netometer, an extremely sensitive magnetic field sensor. From there we went to the infra-red research rooms where we saw the latest improvements in buoys and light-houses. The battery's circuit was attached to a photoelectric cell. XYhen there is sunlight, the battery remains off. As it grows dark, the battery automatically takes over. In this way, warning is always given, but at a much lower cost. The battery itself is extremely powerful, and lasts for years. Another battery under experimentation that we saw is one used in detection devices. especially in underwater projects. The battery, a small pocket-book size unit, nevertheless has enough power to send out a signal for some time. N.R.C. had thought of everything, even of transportation from Montreal Road to the Sussex Drive building, where the cafeteria is. Dr. John Kohr met us there, and took us to a secluded niche for lunch. Following lunch, and a gaze at N.R.C.'s beautifully stocked library. we were taken by Dr. Kohr to watch Photogrammetric Research in action. Briefly photogrammetry is the art or technique of making surveys or maps by means of photographs. When we were introduced to Mr. T. Blachut, he was in the middle of making such a map. The equipment used was made in Germany and Switzerland. One machine was so precise in its etchings that it was kept in an air-conditioned room. From photogrammetry we went to spectroscopy, which is the technique of finding a substance's composition by means of its spectrum. The projects head, Dr. D. A. Ramsey, ushered us into a long dark room where we saw the technique in operation. It is through this very method that scientists have found out so much about the heavenly bodies. 26 THE ASHBURIAN Dr. Kohr next took us to meet Dr. A. H. Reddoch, head of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Research. This terrifying title is the name given to the method used to find the percentage composition of large alcohol molecules. and also to End out the spin and place of individual atoms. This knowledge is essential if man is to synthesize organic materials now only available in natural form. F rom Dr. Reddoch, we went downstairs to meet Dr. R. Colvin, who taught us something about the interior of plant cells. VVe were shown pictures taken of these cells by hundred-thousand-power, and million-power electron microscopes. Dr. Colvin gave a lucid demon- stration of one of these microscopes, a treat equalled by an all too short visit to the million-power microscope. And so the tour concluded. Those who went extend a sincere thank-you to our many hosts at N.R.C., and to Mr. Sibley, who was the inspiration and the hard worker at our end. Those who went on the tour were. Butcher, Farrugia I, Spencer, VVilson I, Lynn, Ewing, XVoolley, Parker I, Mussells I, Snelgrove, and Noel-Bentley I. THE ASHBURIAN 27 CGMMGNWEALTH YoUTH MCDVEMENT THE QUEST I was introduced to the Commonwealth Youth Nlovement in the final term last year by our headinastcr, Nlr. Perry. .-Xt first mv impres- sion of the "Quest" was not very good, but li began to think of the organization quite seriously. As I began thinking of the movement I was very impressed. My name was submitted to the organizer, Major F. Ney. Little did I realize that I was going to be selected to go on the 1960 Quest for Europe. There were odds and ends which 'iad to be cleared here, eventually they were and I was then home free. Sailing time was at ll o'clock from Pier 8 in Xlontreal on july -I. 1960, on board the Canadian Paeific's Empress of France. As I boarded the ship, I saw my companions wearing their Commonwealth blazers and ties and white shirts with grey Hannels. On the blazer was the name of the country which one represented. Before sailing we heard speeches by very distinguished men, who wished us a "Bon Voyage" and a happy and speedy return. Vlfhen all the ceremonies were completed the ship sailed for Liverpool. 1 For the next seven days on the high seas we all became acquainted with each other. Upon our arrival in Liverpool, we were niet by Nlajor Ney and two coaches Cbusesj. Immediately we went up to Carlisle in northern England. We were given a very warm welcome by every- body from the city. Later that night we, the questers, were billeted in private homes. The people who took us in looked after us and made sure that we were always on time for our social functions. We were the guests of the city, therefore there were many civil functions which we had to attend. We stayed in the lovely city of Carlisle for three days, and then we pushed on to Edinburgh, where we were the guests of the Victorian organization of Scotland. Our stay in Edinburgh was for four days, during which we visited places of interest. Free time was given to us so that we could go shopping and do what we desired. Questers were billeted again in private homes, where we were treated as if we were part of the family. and had always lived there. We did not disturb things too much. Unfortunatly all good things must come to an end. The next stop was Almwick. The questers stayed in the castle for two days. Next on the agenda was Southwell, where we were guests of the Bishop, then came Lincoln. The Lyon's club was our host, and the members saw to our needs. Many parties were thrown in our honour. After Lincoln came a week at Ashridge College, which was about thirty miles out of London. Here we were debating and listening to gg THE ASHBURIAN prominent men who spoke to us. Old and new questers were all assembled here, and the week was a great success. As soon as the con- ference was dissolved, we headed for London. In London we stayed in the University of London's residence. During the day we visited outstanding places, and at night we went to plays, operas and the symphony. As an added treat some of the questers were invited to go to Xladrid for a couple of days, then on to Gibraltar. Altogether it would be about a nine-day trip. ln Madrid, questers were billeted in private homes of Commonwealth families. In Gibraltar it was different, as the girls were put in homes while the boys were the guests of the British army. CThat is where we had our most fun.J Finally the Commonwealth Youth Movement trip came to an end, and we all took our separate ways home. The Quest was an excellent adventure, and I will miss it this summer. CANTLIE - VIB DEBATING This year's debating team was active, to say the least. Of twelve debates entered we won six, lost five and tied one. The first contest of the year came against St. Mary's in Brockville on November 25 th. Haslam and Ewing made the trip and came home with the victory by the score of 208-190. The topic Was: Resolved, that Canada should recognize Red China now. One week later at Ashbury, the same topic was again debated with the sides reversed, Ashbury taking the negative this time. In a very close contest it was then decided that our visitors had won, but a later addition of Hgures made the contest a tie. On .Nlarch 19th, Howith and MacLaurin journeyed to Perth where they debated the topic, Resolved, that there is no place for Neutralist Nations in the Nlodern lYorld. Perth High School won a close contest. As a preliminary to the International Speech Festival in Toronto llaslam. Steven, Howith, and Maclsaurin debated against St. Mary's on the Friday before leaving for Toronto. The affirmative side of l lowith and Xlael.aurin were defeated bv our hosts, while Haslam and Steven held up the side with a victory. i .-Xt the International Speech Festival in Toronto, Ashbury arrived home with four wins and two losses. Gerry Haslam and Don Steven, THE ASHBURIAN 29 upholding the negative side of 'Neutralist Nations, won all three debates. and the team of Renny Howith and Dune Mael.aurin won one debate and lost two. The final debate of the year was against Lower Canada College in Montreal. Gerry Haslam and lain lfwing teamed for .Xshburv and were beaten by LCC in an extremely close contest. MEMBERS OF THE Tlf.-XM HASLANI, GERALD CCapt.J - The tireless talker lost only one debate out of six this year, and will be the mainstay of next year's team. He hopes to have many more debates and debators in 61-62, so that Ashbury can again live up to the name made by Chamard-Brodhead- Gale etc. EWING, IAIN - The boy with the big vocabulary was a great asset to the team, and we are sure that his mighty words will do him a world of good in the future. STEVEN, DONALD- Being shoved into a debate with only several days notice isn't the easiest thing in the world to cope with, but Don did it, and well. AJACLAURIN, DUNCAN - What these Americans can't do! A necessary and helpful member. HOWITH, RENNY -The old wit proved to be a great arguer and a Hne debator. It may be added that Haslam won the district 28 Optimist oratorical contest at Plattsburg, N.Y., representing the Optimist Club of Carleton, in competition with 14 students from oher centres in Untario, Quebec. and New York State. From there he went on to compete in the regional finals in Milwaukee, Mis. Although he failed to carry off top honours in this event, we are proud to say that he acquitted himself with dis- tinction, and we feel that he brought great credit, not only to himself. but to the School, in progressing so far against such formidable com- petition. g,, THE ASHBURIAN PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST It is to be regretted that this year's Public Speaking Contest did not create more interest. XVih Gerry Haslam winning everything within reach around the district, perhaps the Seniors feared the compe- tition would be too severe. However, Haslam was not participating, being content to rest on his previous successes, and the field was more open, which made the adjudicators, Mr. Carver and Mr. Spencer, hope for many more than the two contestants. Iain Ewing, giving an impressive rendering of a previously used speech on "Optimism, an Ingredient for True Leadership", was well applauded by the audience. Duncan .NlacLaurin, speaking extemporaneously on 'fVVomen and Destruction", found a ready response to his views. It is not an easy task to compare these two types of forensics, and after considerable dis- cussion, it was decided to share the award between the two contestants. The Intermediate section gave Doug Chalke an opportunity to amuse his audience with an account of his family's trip through Europe the previous summer. His subject, "Touring with a One-year-old", was insuflieiently prepared, and this detracted from the effectiveness of his speech. Hugh Campbell, speaking on "Hypnotism", on the other hand, had prepared his speech, and he delivered it with an air of real authority. Colin Browne, choosing the topical subject, "America's Klan Into Spacen, was handicapped by his own nervousness. The experience should help him on future occasions, and he, as well as the other two contestants, deserve commendation for their efforts. An account of the junior section appears in the 'fjunior Ashburiann. The awards were: Senior: lain Ewing and Duncan NlacLaurin CEqualD. lvlrermediate: Hugh Campbell. Imlior: Tom Fuller. POETRY READING CONTEST The school was most fortunate this year in having Professor George B. johnston, acting head of the English Department of Carleton Uni- versity, as adiudicator of the annual Poetry Reading which was held on Sunday. Nlay 14th in the Chapel. Prof. Johnston verv generously agreed to iudge the readings despite a crowded weekend schedule. The passages read were: 'Set' pieces - Izmiorsz "The Singer Grows Old" - Brown I11rc'r111cdii1res: "The Destruction of Sennacheribn - Byron THE ASHBURIAN 31 Seniors: "Ulysses" Clines 1-173 -Tennyson 'Sight' Izmiors: "The Cloths of Heaven" - Yeats l c Irltermediatesz 'Tewkesbury Road" - .Nlaseheld Seniors: "I Think Continually of Those" - Spender Of special interest was the extremely high quality of the voluntary selections read by contestants in each division. The winners in each category were: juniors: Burritt Intermediates: Campbell I Seniors: Farrugia I In a good-humoured and valuable summation, Prof. Johnston remarked on the great interest with which he had listened to the readings. It almost seemed unfair, he said, that one should dictate a right and a wrong way of reading poetry, that a boy should show sufli- cient interest in reading a poem made it his own personal poem, and no judge should really be called upon to criticize the particular rendition. However, he went on, there were certain standards which one could set, and after a short discussion 0'f these standards he named the winners. Participation in the contest was of a high calibre, and one can only hope that this event will always Hnd a place in the school calendar. C 0 N F E R E N C E S THE HEADMASTERS' CONFERENCE A most successful annual Conference of the Headmasters was held on January 3rd, 4th and Sth at Hillfield School in Hamilton. with Lt. Col. john Page, President and Host. Representatives attended from nearly all Canadian Independent Boys' Schools. As Hilllield is a Day School delegates were accommodated at the Tamahaac Club in Ancaster and at the Town Manor Motel. Attending the Conference as Special Guests were: Rev. Canon Charles Martin. Headmaster, St. Albans School. Hash- ington, D.C. President Fulmer of the American Headmasters' Association. Dr. VVayne McFarland, Principal of jefferson and XYilson Schools. New jersey. Dr. C. A. Brown, Registrar of the Department of Education of Ontario. ,1 THE ASHBURIAN Included in the routine business was the Annual Meeting of the Canadian Foundation for Independent Boys' Schools with Mr. Duncan Gordon and Mr. Peter Kaye bringing the Headmasters up-to-date on the progress of the foundation. The highlight of the Conference was the final dinner at the Hamil- ton Club with Dr. Leslie Severinghaus, Headmaster of the Haverford School at Philadelphia giving the address of the evening. All speakers were of high order and the Headmasters departed for their respective schools feeling that once again the inspiration offered by the speakers and the informal discussions were of great value. Mr. john Harker of St. Georges School in Vancouver has been elected President for the forthcoming year and it is expected that the Conference will be held in B.C. on March the 28th. MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE CONFERENCE The Rev. D. T. Faught, Head of the Mathematics Department of Assumption University, VVindsor, Gntario, was introduced to the several representatives of the Independent Schools of Canada by Mr. Shipley, President of the Mathematics and Science Committee, under the Head- masters' Association, on the occasion of the Annual Meeting held at Ridley College on April 22nd, 1961. Ashbury College was represented by Messrs. H. Dalton and Marland. The Rev. Mr. Faught's address was entitled "The New Mathematics, with especial emphasis on the Grade 9 Curriculum". The New Mathematics is not, in his opinion, the case of assuming a new method in the teaching of mathematics, but rather a shifting of emphasis and a change of approach towards old knowledge. It is the Committee's intention to delete from the curriculum old fashioned tech- niques, to drop obsolete material, and to have a complete revision of the geometry syllabus in Grade 9, as the course is repeated in Grade 10. The Committee also proposed to introduce solid geometry, taught by tie inductive method, to Grade 10 pupils, as a knowledge of planes, lines, formulae, spheres, etc., where special concepts could be met With, was considered to be of great importance in this modern age. In this way students would appreciate the close relationship between the sciences of logic and mathematics. XYith regards to the present Grade 9 curriculum the Rev. Mr. Faught felt that the pupils were insufiiciently challenged, and that, for that reason, there should be a change in emphasis and viewpoint. Presently there is a mixture of rules which is not only devoid of sense, but is disiointed. THE ASHBURIAN 33 The speaker then mentioned the higher grades in order, emphasizing his recommendations for improvements in the present curricula. Grade 10 had already been mentioned and Grade ll was only touched on briefly, there should be much practice in the use of real numbers. For Grade 12, complex numbers should be understood, Algebra was to be on a deductive system which would lead to a better knowledge and understanding of the subject. The Ontario Mathematics Commission feels that any recommenda- tions for Grade 13 mathematics are a temporary stop gap, until a complete revision of the syllabus has been completed. The subject of mathematics has changed considerably during the past fifty years, and today there is emphasis on the inductive approach. In Algebra, in particular, there is a great variance between I-Iigh School Algebra, Grade 13, and the Algebra studied in First Year University. Many students, good mathematicians, feel tricked when they Hrst meet with the new type of Algebra, and become discouraged. Although the present curricula are essentially sound, there is much work to be done on schemes, and the rigid barriers between Algebra, Trigonometry and Geometry have to be broken down. So far there has been an experimental approach to this idea, beginning essentially with Grade 9. ' The speaker answered several questions, and, at the close of the meeting, many of the delegates considered the new ideas to be sound. It was felt, however, that teachers should be given the opportunity to study the teaching methods for themselves before being asked to trans- late the new requirements to their pupils. The after dinner speech by Doctor Hall, President of the University of VVestern Ontario, was well received, and he discussed the difficulties confronting would-be University students, and the efforts of the Selec- tion Committee to counteract these difficulties, and to accept students of all levels in order that Universiy places should not be completely taken up by the brighter pupils, who were not always the leaders or the employers in later life. -I. tl.

The Guild continued its fine work in the interests of the School. Among the activities conducted Were: September 13th - Clothing sale, convened by Mrs. Copeland. The experiment of taking annual subscriptions at the sale proved to be a great success. November 12th - Qld Boys' Luncheon, convened by Mrs. Bethune and Mrs. Gamble. This occasion turned out to be its usual enjoyable affair and was well attended and much appreciated. December 13th -junior School Pantomime, a new venture, pro- duced by Nlr. Beetensen and reported elsewhere in these pages, was sponsored by the Guild. May 5 th - Spring Tea and Sale, convened by Mrs. Thorne. Here the raffle of a handbag kindly donated by Mrs. R. Moore and several cheques from out of town mothers in addition to other proceeds resulted in a highly satisfactory revenue. During the year certain sums of money, the proceeds of these enterprises, were invested for the Guild's endowment fund. In February, the resignation of the President, Mrs. Hadley, was regretfully accepted, Mrs. Partridge stepped into her place to continue the good work. As usual, Miss Patsy Caldwell typed and duplicated all general letters, for which contribution the Secretary is most grateful. The School wishes to thank the ladies of the Guild most cordially for their effective efforts on the School's behalf. THE ASHBURIAN JF SCHOOL DANCE This year's formal was held at the Bruce MacDonald Nlotor Hotel on the evening of April 14. The small attendance at the affair in no way detracted from the success of the dance. Both food and music were maintained at the high standard of previous years, and added greatly to the evening's enjoyment. Receiving the guests were the Headmaster and Nlrs. R. H. Perry. Mike Spencer and Miss Anne YVennberg, Mike Butcher and Miss Susan Devlin. As the evening drew to a close, the couples, bound for the tradi- tional breakfast parties, wandered out to the strains of "Now is the Hour". - " ,A I Wluuuvf' A T. ha' . i. tv P, r , ,i E, a gg. xma-nw f:3 : s . , 'SS' I A K' .df la in f , f -N ,f 1 X qi O ,-vfflf' V V?

The Band, under Band Major Hfotherspoon, made an impressive showing, especially considering the relatively short time that they had received for practice. The junior Gym Squad ably demonstrated the excellent training they had received from their instructor Nlr. Hillary. and they received well-earned applause from the large crowd of visitors. Unfortunately the Signals demonstration had to be cancelled due to technical trouble, but the Rifle and First Aid squads made up for this loss by presenting some of the many skills that they had acquired during their year's training. These squads were followed by a Changing of the Guard ceremony similar to that presented on Parliament Hill. The Honour Guard, augmented by most of the oiiicers and N.C.O.'s of the Regular corps, made a colourful panorama in their scarlet tunies and black bearskins. The Senior Gym Squad, instructed by Nlr. Anderson. proved to be a Htting climax to the squad demonstrations, and presented the form that has won for them the coveted Findlay Trophy for physical fitness for the last several years. The corps was then marched onto the held. where they formed a Hollow Square. Gen. Clarke presented several awards to outstanding cadets, and gave a brief address congratulating the corps for their fine 40 THE ASI-IBURIAN JUNIOR GYM TEAM APPARATUS VVORK showing and granting them a half-holiday for their efforts.

No longer were there huge, heavy linemen, or barrelling six-foot back- fielders. The years of Gnmblcs. Wilsons and Sugdens were over. lhey .ire replaced by Ll smaller, faster football team. which cannot succeed unless everyone plays hard. Such was this yenr's team. The giyernige weight of the first-string line wus only 170 pounds. The first- string bnclslield xyeiglied Ll meagre lol, and if this team proved nothing else, it proved ieyontl Ll sh.ulow of doubt that it takes ll whole team to win ll gnune. 'lihis uns exemplified in the sezisoifs first five games. The rt-.mi urns nr full strength, the line charged. the bncklield outrnn, Olli- l . THE ASHBURIAN -H passed, and generally outplayed, the opposition. The result was five victories: we scored 1 16 points, only 21 were scored against us. Then came Northwood. This was certainly a game to remember, and to those who saw the Northwood game in 1958, I say- this was a game to beat even that one, not because the team played better, because it didn't, and not because the score was close, because it wasn't, but for the simple fact that Ashbury never stopped fighting, although the manager helped twelve players off the field. The team knew they couldn't win, at least not playing American rules, but they fought to the whistle. We returned to Ashbury with seventeen men who could walk without some form of pain, and this in itself shows the true merit of the school Hfeelingn. The team played its best, and accepted defeat with honour. The following week the "walking wounded" tackled Smiths Falls, Lanark County Champions. VVe weren't up for that one, and had little left of the original team. Nevertheless, we still played hard with what we could. Because of injuries, the annual Old Boy's game was called off, and the season Hnished, five wins, two losses: highly respectable in anyones language. The team thanks Tiny Hermann for his'time and patience, and joe Irvin for his assistance to Tiny and the team. Games Played 1. Ashbury vs. Lakefield, September 30 XV on 22-14 After a stumbling start, the team caught hold of itself to come from behind and win. Berry, Ewing and Pickens all scored touchdowns. 2. Ashbury vs. Bishop's, October 8 Won 19-0 Bob Berry duplicated our feat of a year ago by running 80 yards at the kickoff for a T.D. Then it was all Ashbury. Iain Ewing and Kev Pickens each scored their second T.D. of the season. 3. Ashbury vs. Stanstead, October 15 XYon 32-0 In this game, the team "felt its oats" and ran wild. Berry scored twice, and Pickens, Ewing and Oxley added single maiors. 4. Ashbury vs. Bishops, October 22 XYon 21-7 A determined effort by the boys in purple couldn't keep us from the eighth straight Bishop's Trophy. Bob Berry scored two touch- downs, and running mate Kev Pickens added the other. 46 TI-IE ASHBURIAN 5, Ashbury vs. Albert, October 25 VVon 22-0 ' This was the lull before the storm. A hard played, rough game, 4 in which Ewing scored two T.D.'s and Berry added the other. -4 6. Ashbury vs. Northwood, October 29 Lost 0-38 The first quarter was fairly even, but then unlimited blocking took its toll, and a fine Northwood team pulled ahead. Despite injuries to Pickens, Genser, Spencer, Rowntree, Oxley, Ewing, Barakett 1 and others, we kept on and fought to the end. 7. Ashbury vs. Smiths Falls, November 5 Lost 0-26 The injuries had taken their toll, but the game was still hard fought. The last game of a fine season.

SECOND FOOTBALL Although this years team had only four survivors from last years squad to help them along, a combination of hard work. sound coaching and good quarter-backing saw them finish the season with a com- mendable 3-3 record. The two victories over llastview High School were resounding as we ran up an aggregate of 38 points against 6. Linfortunately, against B.C.S. and Stanstead we were not so good, losing all three games. lt was especially disappointing to lose to B.C.S. twice in the same season. as this was the first time in four years that we have been beaten by them. VVe look forward to 1962 to redeem our tarnished reputation. Perhaps the promised addition to the school staff of Ron Lancaster of Ottawa Rough Riders and Grey Cup winner fame will help. Our last game against lYoodrotTe High School was probably the best of the season and certainly the most exciting, ending in a 13-12 victory for Ashbury. The second team would like to take this opportunity of recording their thanks to Mr. B. K. Hillary and to Nlr. G. lYedd. his able assistant. for their enthusiastic coaching and encouragement. and most important - an enjoyable season's sport. f,, THE ASHBURIAN FOOTBALL DINNER The annual sports dinner was held in Symington Hall on November 22nd, There was the usual array of famous personalities, including members of the Board of Governors, Coach C. B. "Tiny" Hermann and sl. S. Irvin, Sr. and jr. The evening began with a short address by the headmaster followed bv Grace by the Chaplain. After a delicious meal the chairman pro- posed the toast to the Queen. Mr. A. D. Brain then gave an enlightening account of .-Xshbury's history in giving a toast to the school. The toast to the school teams was proposed by Mr. A. B. Belcher, who regaled the gathering with several humorous anecdotes. Klr. Leo Palmer, in the .ibsence of the Chairman of the Board of Governors, gave the toast to the coaches which was replied to by 'LTiny" Hermann who managed somehow to keep his speech under the required time limit. The emphasis was then shifted to the presentation of awards. In football, Kevin Pickens won the "Most Valuable Player" trophy, while Captain Rennie Howith was named as "Most Improved Player". Soccer awards were presented to Michael Farrugia for the "Host Valuable Player" and to Danny NlcGaughey for the "Most Improved Player" The presentation of other awards and colours brought the evenings activities to a close. SOCCER FIRST TEAM In September, with over half last years team returning, even the most partisan of football players had to concede Soccer the prospect of an extremely fine season. The vigorous interest aroused by last year's unexpected success Hlled the soccer fields with 702, of the school's population. It is interesting to note that all 16 players used this year played soccer at Ashbury last year, a credit indeed to the careful training of our coach, Nlr. Anderson. No matter how much one can talk or write about a team, only the record can speak in the cold, clear voice of truth. So it is with some pride that the team can boast a 7-1-2 record-the best in Ashbury's history for a First Soccer Team. Both losses were against R.XI.C., and, as for these two losses, the team likes to think that it was beaten only once, outscored twice. .-X word should be said about the team's spirit this year. Spirit is, in nine cases out of 10, the deciding factor in a close game. The team's spirit failed only once to produce a victory in a tight game, and on two ieparate occasions brought it from behind by two goals to a victory. vi. an 5 Tis C9 'Mad' 40s .5 if I-'IRST SOCCER Tlf.A.Nl Bark Roux' A.

There is no doubt that most of the credit should go to the inspiring and inspired coach. At the annual Sports Dinner in November. the various trophies and colours were awarded. Alike Farrugia captured the Alost Valuable Player award, Danny XlcGaughev the Xlost Improved Player award. and colours went to Captain Alaclaiaurin. Vice-captain Cooper. Farrugia. AIcGaughey. and Davidson l. GAXII-QS 1. The season opened with a win of 5-l over Lachute lligh School. Although Lachute had already played a few games. our team quickly proved its supremacy. A blend of skill. spirit, two goals bv Farrugia. and one by Blackburn won us the game. 2. Our first awav game of the season was at Sedbergh. llow we managed to keep this fast-moving. spirited team to a shutout is .1 mystery. Pottinger blasted in two goals, and Davidson one to win the game 3-O. v, THE ASHBURIAN 3. Two short weeks after our win over Lachute, they had their chance for revenge. and they almost took it, for Ashbury was down two goals at the half. The second half was a different story. Lachute's home supporters saw their team completely bottled up while we scored three times to clinch the game 3-2. Davidson, Tyler. and Blackburn were the scorers. -L Has our nemesis here so soon? Over-conndence on our part again saw us two goals behind at the half, this time to Sedbergh. Again, like the week before. Ashbury rallied. XYith tremendous spirit, we returned to win the game, again by a score of 3-2. In the entire second half, Sedbergh could only manage to get the ball in our half three times- thanks sto the fine efforts of the defensive system. Pottinger scored twice, and Farrugia put the ball between the posts for the winning goal. 5. The next two games were a double-header against Northwood School in Lake Placid, NX. As far as we were concerned, they were the best, most enjoyable games of the season. The first game, played on a Saturday afternoon, attracted a large crowd of Northwood supporters. Even so, at half-time we were ahead 2-0 on goals from Farrugia and Blackburn. But, with a superb rally, Northwood had tied the score by three-quarter time. During the next twenty minutes, both teams killed themselves to get that elusive winning goal. Outstanding play by both goalies resulted in the whistle blowing on a 2-2 score. 6. The next day, a battered, almost dejected Ashbury team went to face what it thought was sure doom. But those last twenty minutes of the day before were repeated for the full eighty minutes on this day. TVhen Pottinger scored early in the second half, all mayhem broke loose. A grim. determined Northwood team put terrific pressure on the hard- fighting Ashbury team. These last few minutes were the best Ashbury played all season, and we were rewarded with a narrow l-0 victory. 7. This, the third and last meeting with Sedbergh was the triumph we had long waited for. Blackburn scored two, and Davidson, Farrugia, and Pottinger one each to win the game 5-1. 8. Our only game against Kemptville this season was a defensive master- piece. XYhile the forwards dilly-dallied and pussyfooted a mere three goals against this our weakest adversary of the season, the defence kept Kemptville to one shot! The goals were scored by Davidson C21 and lfarrugia l l J. 9. Our first game vs. R.Nl.C. was played in Kingston on a huge, wind- swept field. which had all the attributes of a freshly waxed floor. The only goal of the day rolled in our net with the force of the wind at its back. and no more. The tying goal could not come. On two separate occasions open nets were missed. Lady Luck frowned on us that day. THE ASHBURIAN JJ 10. In the return match .-Xshburv's supporters had the singular ex- perience of watching a team crumble before their very eyes. The mighty Ashbury machine appeared to need an oil change. Although Davidson scored once, the right fullback scored an injudicious goal on his own net, which, coupled with two of R.Nl.C.'s own, lost us the game 3-1. THL2 Tl-ANI Player Age Home Pos. Goals D.

H O C K E Y FIRST Tram A new coach, new players, and a new season. Such was the situation at the beginning of the hockey year. The newness, however. did not adversely affect the team. as the results proycdg Xlr. llillary did a magnificent job in his position as coach, and the new players such as Kev Pickins and George Keffer more than filled the vacant spaces. The season opened with a pre-Christmas tryout game against our old rivals, Currie Iilectric. with the visitors emerging thc winners hy thc tune of 9-8. This was followed by out first victory of the season. a convincing win over KAS. Then the had news started. A loss to Sr. Pats seemed to forebodc the future. Two heartbreaking losses fu l.CC Q6 THE ASHBURIAN .md Lakeiield hit the team hard, but as soon as we were down, a little spirit bounced us right back up again, and we defeated Currie Electric and Lachute. Next was the big question-could We beat Bishops? The answer was an enthusiastic YES, and the boys in purple went home the losers for the second time in three years. Northwood School were the next players in our drama of hockey. We split our double header with this hard fighting school, and travelled to Montreal the following week for a 2-0 win over Stanstead. Only one game remained, the Old Boys - quite a spirited bunch to say the least. Gone were the days when it was an easy victory, and the game ended in a 5-5 tie, due largely to the outstanding goaltending of Mr. j. XVedd. Thanks to Mr. Perryls generosity, a dinner was held at the Eastview llotel, where the team presented Mr. Hillary with a handsome golf cart. In conclusion, the team would like to thank Mr. Hillary for his fine coaching, Chris Flood and Mike Spencer for their fine 'Captaining', and Neil Lynn for his Hne managing.

SECOND HOCKEY This year's second hockey team did not win a game, although no one would deny that the boys deserved this distinction on at least one occasion. ln fact, there were several games in which the team showed its ability to play good hockey. Although the ingredients for Winning games appeared to be present in this spirited squad, the seorebook did not show it. Nevertheless, the skill and sportsmanship shown by our boys should be an inspiration to any school team, whether a winner or a loser. Thanks are certainly due to the coach, once a great hockey player for Ashbury, Mr. Gil Molloy. The season's first game, against Lakefield, could be taken as an accurate preview of things to come. lVe were to play faster and more powerful teams throughout the season. Our first game, fast and hard, was the first of our losses. Score was 5-3. There followed two contests with Gatineau High School, in which we were again outclassed and beaten. Next came our three-game series with Nlr. XYilliam Ardell and his Sedberghian ICLIIU-IHLIICS. The scores were 6-2, 7-3 and 5-5, the last of these three games, NYE felt, was by far the best. ln this game we played our best hockey of the season. There can never be enough words written about the trip to Hill- field. .Xfter a hard-fought game which we lost 4-0 we were treated To some of the more hewitehinff attractions of llamilton social life for b 7 which our repeated thanks are due to john Mason, lioh Halls, "Homer", and their eonfederates. .1 THE .-ISHIZ L'Rl.AI.N' 61 ' ' W ' ' -I sw--fm... .-.....,,......'

SKIING At the beginning of the winter term great things were not expected from the ski team. VVith only two of last year's team returning, the outlook was not at all bright. However, by dint of hard work coupled with plenty of enthusiasm, the team made a very creditable showing every time they competed. The team, as a whole, competed in only two meets: the Dalton XVood, where we entered two teams. in which we made our usual top showing in the cross-country, and the Tri-School meet in which we finished third. However, almost every week-end would find various members of the team competing in Gatineau Ski Zone races. with varying degrees of success. As a result of these many competitions there were a number of injuries suffered this season. Kirkbride, the team captain. suffered a concussion and Anderson I. a promising newcomer. had the misfortune to break his leg. 44 THE ASHBURIAN The following awards were presented at the Easter Readover: The livan Gill Trophy for the best individual skier went to Tim Coristine and the Ashbury College Cup for the most improved skier to Tony Anderson. Colours were awarded to Coristine and Devlin. At the closing the new Chris Coristine Memorial Trophy for the best cross- country skier in the school went, most fittingly, to Chris' brother Tim Coristine. ln closing, thanks should be given to Dave Rhodes, an Ashbury old boy, for his untiring efforts on behalf of the team. Also a Word should be said for the younger members of the team who, if they improve as much as they did this year, will undoubtedly form the nucleus of future powerful teams. BASKETBALL This year was definitely not our year. Nine times a confident, spirited Ashbury team bounced onto the Hoof, nine times a crushed, deected Ashbury team rolled into the dressin room. The one hi h- D l . , 3 n g 11 ht of the season was the smashin defeat of the Ashbur ski team. 3 3 . . . . Y Althou h the team was la ued with in uries, the main trouble was . 3 . . P .3 . . l . inexperience. This inexperience IS evidenced by the fact that 1n no less than five ames the team was ahead at uarter-time, but in onlv one gu , fl , game by half-time, and in none by full-time. At the Easter Readover, the following awards were made: colours to Captain MacLaurin and Vice-Captain Mussells, the McA'Nulty Trophy for the most valuable player to MacLaurin, and the Snelgrove Trophy for the most eo-operative and promising player to Gill.

Once again courts were provided through the kindness of the Rockcliffe and Rideau Lawn Tennis cLubs. The large field was divided into two squads, the A squad which played at Rockclirfe under the supervision of Mr. Anderson and Klr. Hillary, and the B squad at Rideau under Mr. Pemberton. The annual match against Northwood School, of Lake Placid. NX. was played at Lake Placid on Monday, june 22nd. The team. taken from the A squad, consisted of Berry, the team captain, Pickens, Gill. Bethune and Smallian. This year, a friendly golf match was arranged between those of the tennis team who played golf and representatives from Northwood. This match was played on the Lake Placid Club course and although the team, despite being strengthened by the presence of Hyndman, did not distinguish itself, the competition was thoroughly enjoyed by all who participated. The tennis was played the following day and here again, although there were some close, hard-fought battles. Pickens was the only member of the team who managed to come through with a victory. The school championship, open to members of both A and B squads with almost 30 players participating, was run otf during the last few weeks of the term. Berry and Pickens emerged as the finalists and after a very tough game Berry was crowned the victor for the third year in a row. In closing, mention must be made of the school's new asphalt court. which was laid down over the old clay court this spring. This has given a great boost to tennis at Ashbury, and we hope that it points the way to more improvements in the future.

FIRST CRICKET Could this be the year for the cricket team? Might we have a team that could beat Bishops twice? These were typical questions during winter nets when the blocking strength of Tyler and Smethurstg the all round hitting and bowling of All-Canadian Farrugiag the hitting power of Pottinger and Logie and Kirkbrideg the possible improvement of Lynn and Haslam, and the promise of newcomers Parker and VVotherspoon made the team look about as good as it had ever been. True, gone were Reiskind and Goodisg gone too was Tucker, but with lYotherspoon, Parker, Farrugia and Haslam, the bowling looked strong. But that was before the season. Early in the year, the myth about bowling ended quickly. l'w'otherspoon could be used only sparingly, and Parker bowled but nine overs throughout the year. Haslam pulled a back muscle after howling Uttawa's best batter, and the bowling fell squarely on the shoulders of Mike Farrugia. Fortunately one Alan Bechard turned up, and for the rest of the season, Bechard and Graham Pottinger handled most of the bowling at the 'other' end. Our batting, however. looked promising. ln the first game, lfarrugia having gone out cheaply, Kirkbride and Haslam made a stand, providing the stimulus for l.,ogie's fifty, but from then on, the batting just wasn't. Somehow. whether it was luck, or inexpericnce, the bats- men could never stay up long enough to get any runs. excluding, of course, several liofgllllc occasions when several runs were scored. THE ASHBURIAN 69 So, we didn't beat Bishops, but what of next year? Pottinger. Logic, Smethurst, Haslani, Lynn, Tyler, Beeharnl, llaviilson and Parker will be back, and possibly Bishops may once again fall victim to an Ashbury cricket team. xs Cathedral CC Ashbury-l-+0 Cathedral-65 lYon xs Defense CC Ashbury- 25 Defense-153 l.oSt vs Bishops Ashbury- 34 l3.C.S.-63 Lost ws Bishops Ashbury- 41 l3.C.S.-129 Lost xs International Ashbury-2-NH' International-67 Draw vs R.M.C.

Their success in that team was a great credit to them but it left us with a very young inexperienced group. VVe opened the season with a win against the Ottawa Colts but a strong Bishop's Team was too much for us both at home and away although the bowling of Addleman and Samples II was determined and effective. At Ashbury Sedbergh defeated us handsomely after our batting had collapsed wretchedly but in the return match we had a closer game. IVe managed to get 46 runs CAddleman 15, Samples II Ill. XVe were in a strong position with Sedbergh 6 wickets down for 30 runs. when some Hne hitting gave them victory and their innings closed at 54. The most promising members of the team were Partridge lCapt.l Addleman, and Samples I and II. They are all young and have the beginnings of an attractive batting style. They all have a sound defen- sive stroke which is rare enough in this level of cricket. Next year they will be with us and with greater size and experience they should realize their promise and perhaps help to avenge this season's defeats. THE ASI-IBURIAN 90 ...J '99 46 Q?

MONTREAL TRACK MEET This year the CKIIAA track meet was for the seven-man Ashbury squad, characterized by an all-round team etfort, every member making his contribution. Ashbury boys were entered in four of the Five age classes. and the competition was fiercer than ever, approximately 700 athletes taking part in the meet. The re.nn captain, Rod Xlclnnes, placed an excellent Sth in a field of I7 in the Cllass 3 880 yard with a time of 2 min. 11.2 sec. This was especially line running when it is understood that Rod had suffered a serious knee injury playing basketball this winter. His doctor had said he xvonIdn'r he able ro run at all this spring. THE ASHBUR1.-IN 1 lain Ewing made the best showing of the day for the Ashbury team. Last off the starting blocks, lain broke the tape a stride ahead of the pack in the 100 yard dash, with a winning time of 10.6 sec. ln the broad- jump, his first leap measured 18'6" and this earned him a 3rd place ribbon. A pulled thigh muscle forced him to scratch the 220 yard and the hop-step-and-jump. In Class 1, Michael Polk also had a fine day. llc placed fourth in the 220 yard final Che had a time of 25.1 sec. in the semi-finaly, and broadjumped 15'6" for a 6th place. Dave Hunt's lot was not so happy, and despite his fine running, he was 3rd in both the Class -1 100 yard and 220 yard semi-finals. Unfortunately, only the first two went into the final. However, his brother Peter came 3rd in the Class 2 100 yard Final with a time of 11.1 sec. after winning his semi-final. Keffer Il also ran an excellent 880. in crossing the Hnish line 8th in a field of 23, clocked at a fast 2 min. 18.4 sec. Finlay, brought up from the junior School, showed well with a 3rd in the Class 2 semi-final Qonly one into the rinalj and in being a 220 yard semi-Hnalist. This year the team made a balanced effort, and each member con- tributed to the overall success of the whole. A line showing by all! HOUSE CGMPETITION This was Connaught's year- as may be seen from the tabulation below.

GYM Once again the gymnasium, which Mr. Anderson "rules as his demesne" has made its valuable contribution to the general health and muscular development of the School. As the Duke of VVellington was alleged to have said that the battle of Waterloo was won upon the playing fields of Eton, so we may say that many a victory on field or ice has been won upon the floor of the gymnasium. There are, of course, gym periods included in the regular routine of the whole school, but during the latter part of the winter term Mr. Anderson conducted extra classes on Monday and Friday evenings for those who were ambitious to make the team. The season culminated in the display of RT. and apparatus work fbox and parallel barsb on Cadet Inspection Day. The performance was highlighted by "single" demonstrations by Mr. Anderson CInstruc- tory, Bray fflaptainl, and lfwing, but the entire show was notable for the excellence in achievement. form and control of all participants. THE ASHBURI.-IN w THE CLD BOYS' SECTIDN OLD BOYS' DINNER-jL'Nli, 1960 lt seems appropriate that some mention, admittedly belated, should be made here of last year's Old Boys' Dinner. journalistic deadlines being what they are - unpredictable - the 1960 ,-Xshburian had gone to press before the dinner was held. This was a particularly festive occasion. Nlore than 75 members of the Old Boys' Association, Board of Governors and staff, gave 11 standing ovation to A. D. Brain on the completion of 25 years of teach- ing at Ashbury. The Qld Boys also presented Klr. Brain with a silver cigar box and a substantial cheque. Nlr. Charles Gale, on behalf of the Board of Governors, made the presentation of a beautiful clock. Tributes were voiced by those present to Nlr. Brain's devotion to the school, and letters and telegrams were received from all across Canada. In his address to the dinner, Mr. Brain described his 25 years on the staff of the school as a rewarding experience, and said that it was a "good thing" for him when he applied for a job there. He said when he had come to Ashbury he had found a school "full of tradition, yet yearning for growth". He said that steady growth had,made Ashbury the sixth private school in Canada in terms of budget and enrolment, and he praised the four headmasters under whom he had served for their dedication to the school. Principal address was made by A. B. R. Lawrence. The annual reunion was arranged by XY. Slattery, chairman of the Old Boys' Committee.

Held on Saturday, November 12th, the pattern was perforce varied by the omission of the annual football game of School lst Team vs. Old Boys. The cancellation was made necessary by the many injuries sustained by the School during the season's play. However, the usual Noon Refreshments and the excellent Lunch- eon, convened by the Mothers' Guild, were provided as usual. At 8.00 p.m. the Buffet Supper Dance was held in Argyle Assembly Hall, was well attended, not only by Old Boys, but by many parents and friends of the School. This cheery event was enjoyed by most of those present to the top of their bent, and by some even farther. -l1011t1'eal. The Annual Old Boys, Montreal Reunion was held on December the 3rd, 1960 at the LaSalle Hotel. A larger gathering of Old Boys tnan usual enjoyed the refresh- ments. The cuisine, directed by our Old Boy parent Victor Fascio, surpassed previous superb efforts. One of the highlights of the food was a huge cake bearing the Ashbury crest and motto. Short speeches were given by the Montreal Committee and the Headmaster. This annual event in Montreal is rapidly becoming an outstanding Old Boys' feature of the year.

L. Lawsox, 1952 - On july 18th we received a note from Mr. John Lawson who, at that time, was stationed in Germany with the lst Glosters. He sent his best wishes to the School and asked to be remembered to his many Ashbury friends. S. Xv001.I.CONIBI-1, 1957 - Steven lYoollcombe, grandson of Ashbury's Founder, Canon G. P. lYoollcombe, has returned to the University of Toronto after a year's absence. After completing his Hrst year at Toronto, he obtained special permission to take his second year at Laval L'niversity in Quebec. This he completed entirely in the French language. THE ASHBURIAN PREFECTS NOEL-BENTLEY, PETER: "Gods are not born, they are made by universal ballucinarionf' Pete has been here too long. He has risen from an ohnoxious Junior to an egotistical head-boy, a position in which he revels. Ilowever, it is to his glory that his subjects "do love, honour, and most ohcv him". Though tops in academics, about his sports record he is justifiably modest. Hr- played on the First Soccer, First Basketball, and First Crickct Teams, on which, respectively, he scored a goal on his own sidc, warmed thc hcnch, and watched. He was an "active" member of the Cadet Corps, but as far as participating in "active" work, he was a superior olicer with many persons at his disposal.-Need I say more? During his snare time, he could be found either serving in the chapel or reading Andre Gidc in the common room. But may I state that in neither case does he practice what he preaches QI thinkj. This summer Peter nlans to spend in Europe, and on his return he will enter the University of Toronto. VVe are sure that if he uses as much energy studying in the fall as he docs holidaying in the summer, he will never have any trouble. XVe look forward to great things from you, Peter. Good luck! SPENCER, MICHAEL: "Marry ber, and at the end of a 'week you'll jind no more inspiration in ber than in a plate of cold muffins." In only three years, Mike has advanced from an inferior product of an inferior school to one of The School's co-head boys, and to its Com- manding Ofiicer of the Cadet Corps. In both capacities, he proved himself worthy of the name, "The Voice". And as Cadet Major, his never-failing guidance led the Corps to a well-above-average rating. In sports, Mike showed himself to be a two-letter man as he vice-captained the school's First Football and Hockey Teams. Even in social life, after a minor set- back, "brother" Mike forged ahead to greater fields of conquest. In the common room, Michael was seldom out-shouted, and his genial roars endeared him to all. Next year Carleton has the deafening prospect of containing him. There he will take an Arts course, and we wish him well. FARRUGIA, MICHAEL: "They never taste who always drinleg They always talk who never tbinlef, Deported for the ninth consecutive year from the republic with the sunny clime, Mike returned to Ashbury's ivy walls for his Hnal year. He served as a stalwart sixth of the Upper Sixth, and joined the hierarchy of the Common Room as Captain of the Boarders. Mike eamed no laurels in the social circles, but did carve his name in Ashbury's Athletic Hall of Fame: in the autumn, he captured the "Most Valuable Player" Award on the First Soccer Team, in winter, he was an outstanding member of the perfectly defeated First Basketball Team, and in spring, when he could spare time from his studies, he captained the First Cricket XI for the second year. Mike's cricket ability has eamed him a place on the Canadian Colts' Cricket Team, which is touring England this summer,- a great honour indeed, and we all wish him the best of luck in this venture. Our loss will be either McCill's or Toronto's gain. Our loss is not to be despaired, however, for another Farrugia has been sighted in the depths of Argyle, and this one is reported to have teeth. At any rate, Mike, we wish you success in all your undertakings. BUTCHER, MICHAEL: "lVlaenet'cr I feel like irorleimg, I lie down until the shock wears off? Mike, "the littlest bearskin of them all", retumed to school this year heralded by the dubious honour of being a prefect and the form monitor of Upper VI.. Although not the best sportsman, he did play on the Second Football Team, and coached the Second Ski Field to a winter of fun. Come the spring, however, he forfeited sports for study, study for a "fairer" pastime. Mike was one of the social leaders of the school, an organizer of the school dances, and the Common Room jokester. Mike, as lieutenant of the No. 2 Platoon, did a surprisingly good job. Next year Mike planned to go to R.M.C., Carleton. and McGill, and now plans to attend C.M.R. Vifherever be ends up, we wish him the best of u . THE ASHBURIAN COOPER, JOHN: "The 'wedlock of minds 'will be greater than that of bodies." Coop has been cooped up in Ashbury now for four years, and in that time he has grown from a gangling hirsute kid to a gangling hirsuter youth. But underneath this bushy outward mien is a walking emotion. Indeed, this profile might be aptly titled "Portrait of a Poor Passion- packed Pre-feet". He insists that his passion is purely of the mind, but, as if to disprove it, he quotes from the outre works of even outre-er authors, such as Dylan Thomas and Dafydd an Gwilym, whose works one must have misty eyes to begin with in order to appreciate. In the autumn term, he bumed these passions by playing on the stalwart defense of the First Soccer Team, which he vice-captained. Winter Saw him restless, and by spring he was forced to study. In the way of cadets, his oHicial position was co-adjutor to the adjutant, but in reality he marked time for the entire year. This summer john is working for Computing Devices of Canada, Ltd. Whether he computes or devises, we wish C.D.C. luck. Next year, with a wee bit of luck and a few marks, John will attend Trinity College, U. of T., where he will pick up a B.A. in preparation for a medical degree. Physician, heal thyself! FLOOD, CHRIS: "His thoughts have a high aim though they dwell in a humble heart. 7 77 Chris, christened Flash by the boys, is completing his fourth and linal- but-one year at Ashbury. In the past year he has gathered the rich harvest of glory in Ashbury's sports' fields. In the autumn, he was the First Football Team's outstanding lineman, and was awarded colours for his fine job, and in the winter, Captain Flood led his First Hockey Team to a very fine season, including the smear of one Bishop's College. But although the name Flood is usually associated with snort, Chris is going to end up with no sick Matric, and has assured himself a berth in next year's Upper VI. When not sporting or studying, Flash enjoys his leisure hours apartying. Though pretty seedy at formal school, who'd ever think that, while apartying, he'd tum the School Formal "seedy',? We forgive Flash for his bird-like instincts, but hope that next year hard work will ground him for awhile. At any rate, we wish him luck-lots of it-for next year's grind, and for that of the years to come too. GILL, ALAN: "Where the cat's afway, the mice 'will play." Everybody's pal Al is completing his Hfth and second-last year at Ashbury. During the year, he covered himself with glory, beginning with being made Captain of the Day Boys among the elite prefect group, and ending with receiving an M.L.T.S.-a feat indeed in Grade XII. Not to be con- fined to mere academics and responsibilities, he gave sport his all, and ended up with First Football colours and the Snelgrove Trophy for the most cooperative and promising basketball player, and was also a member of the First Tennis squad. Although his weekends were cer- tainly not spent in army-style discipline, Monday invariably found him building up his No. 3 Platoon to its eventual capture of the Best Platoon award, and himself, doing it, to his eventual stealing of the Best Officer award. A few weeks ago, Al became the last surviving male Gill as his cousin Chris got married. But we have every faith in Al, and are sure that a little thing like his retum to Ashbury next year won't keep him from fulfilling his destiny. We wish him luck in this and in all his future endeavours. MACLAURIN, DUNCAN: "lVicked1zess is a myth in- vented by good people to account for the curious attracrifeevzess of others." Yanky has completed his fifth year at Ashbury with flying colours. As Captain of the First Soccer Team, he kept the ball out of the netg as Captain of the First Basketball Team, he kept the ball in the net. Since he had won colours in both these sports previously, the least we could do was to award him the trophy for the Most Valuable Player fin Basket- hally. Come to think of it, he's won this before too. During the spring term, he made the First Tennis Squad, but a previous engagement kept him in Ottawa on the Northwood trip. In October, Yanky reached that golden age in which one can be legally excused from cadets. This time was spent to good use, and his final results tall first and second class honours? prove that it was indeed put to good use. Next year will proh- ahly find Dune at Washington and Lee University. Good luckl THE ASHBURIAN MCINNES, RODERICK: "Come live in my bcart and pay no rent." Rod, after spending his earlier days in some remote fishing village, fol- lowed family tradition and cainc to Ashbury seeking higher ctlut-ation. Now in his third year, "YVickers" has excelled both in acauleinics and in sports. In grade 10, he won the Merit Prim-, and 1-vcr since has maintained a high acacleinic standing. llis illustrious sports cart-cr has been hampered this year by a recurring kncc injury suffered last fall during football season. an injury which unfortunately liiniti-tl hfs playing time. As a member of the victory-less First Basketball 'lk-run, Nth-ka-rs was one of the glowing sparks in a dying fire. Cadet lnspcclinii found Rod plagued by a recurrence of his injury. Shortly after thc inspection, he made a startling recovery, and last year's colour winner and this year's Captain of track could be seen out on the field training. This summer will find Rod taking it easy in Chester, and caring tor the American female acquaintances who so faithfully kept the l'ri-fi-cts' Common Room sweetly scented throughout the year. Next tall, hc uill depart for Dalhousie where he will be taking medicine. Tough luck, Dal. Our gain is your loss. MONKS, RICHARD: "lVben the military man approaches, the 'world locks up its spoons and parks og its 'w07?1t17Zki7Id.,7 Rich ambled on to the Ashbury scene only three short years ago. but in this brief time he has advanced to become one of the school's senior boys. As its towering lieutenant, he brought the Honour Guard to a high standard of efficiency in both appearance and drill, a job which earned for him the Most Valuable Officer award. As a member of the First Football Team, he proved to be a pillar of strength along the line. Social events, too, were not forgotten, and each dance heralded another smashing triumph for him. Fortunately for his fellow prefects, he was not blessed with the inexhaustible supply of exhausting Duns that identifies another member of his family. Next year, "Mount" is taking a science course at Carleton, which will mark yet another step in his "mount" for fame and fortune. MUSSELLS, DAVID: 'fl slept and dreamed that life 'was beauty, I 'woke and found that life 'was duty." David has attended Ashbury for three years, and in this short time, has "musselled" his way into the upper echelon of Ashbury's society. He was a keen sportsman, as can be seen by his keen "sleeper" play i.n the Common Room. Actually Dave was on three First Teams this year-Foot- ball, Basketball, in which he won his colours, and Cricket. As sergeant of the Flag Party "platoon", he proved himself adept at commanding his brethren. But his most important feat this year was his academic triumph. One by one, under his yoke humbly marched his Junior Matriculation papers. The result, we hope, is an acceptance to C.M.R. in the fall. This summer Dave is playing it cool by working up north on one of America's defence systems. Ashbury's defensive end has become Canada's defensive end. Good luck. POTTINGER, GRAHAM: "Come forth into the liglnt of things, Let Nature be your teacher." Graham holds the dubious distinction of being the first Ashbury prefect to hail from a certain, well-known metropolis to the north. Aware of this great responsibility, he was most conscientious in the carrying out of his duties. Not one to limit his activities, Pot managed to occupy himself athletically during the year. Autumn saw him capture the First Soccer Team scoring honours, and spring found him lfuljfilling duties as vice- captain Land do we mean vicel of the First Cricket Xl. During the winter term, old Fungus-foot channeled his athletic energies into a coach- ing vein. Here Graham led his Linden Loafers to the Third Hockey Field championship, and, as a result, has received many lucrative offers for his services. However, as none included a Jag XK-E, all have been refused. Probably Ashbury's most weekly boarder, he can invariably he seen heading north at 4 o'clock every Friday. Graham will once again be felling trees this summer, and, as he says. realizing his ambition to grow a beard. Ashbury will be haunted by his presence again next year. so, until then, Syd, don't get any chips on your shoulder. N7 --Q A1 4 s JL, sm V., I ,, ..-.J .ll anime? ...Qi QQ .. , f ,, .

'91 .QP - W af 5+ ESQ l THE ASHBURIAN READOVER ln looking back over the year, Mr. Perry expressed his thanks to the staff and students for all the loyal support he had received. It had been a sad year in many ways, for we had lost several people who had meant so much to the school. Mr. Perry went on to commend the boys for the composure they had displayed, and he knew that Ashbury would always hold in fondest memories those whom she had lost. Although the year was not outstanding as far as athletics were concerned, considerable progress had been made in achieving a high academic rating for Ashbury, and this, the headmaster continued, was of prime importance in the life of a school. He also mentioned in particular the choir for their success over the year and the cadet corps for their fine showing on inspection day. Mr. Perry announced the departure of seven members of the staff and thanked them for all the help they had given. He was sure that he was speaking for all the boys in wishing them success in their future endeavours. The athletic awards and house colours were presented to deserving boys for their efforts in sports. The headmaster concluded the readover by saying farewell to the graduating class and by cautioning those who would be returning in the autumn not to study too hard during the summer months of leisure that lay ahead.

Despite the inclement weather, several hundred parents and friends were in attendance. necessitating the seating of the boys in the gym where they heard speeches by loudspeaker. The Chairman of the Board of Governors, C. G. Gale, lisq., opened the ceremony with a few words of welcome. lrle then introduced the headmaster who gave a brief account of the vear's activities. Mr. Perry felt that the standard of academics had made a definite advance, and though this had not been an outstanding year for athletics, we were still encouraged by football and hockey victories over our greatest rival, Bishops College, and by the increased participation in school sports. notably in soccer and in hockey. Mr. Perry went on to say that the school had been deeply saddened by the deaths of several people who had been closely associated with the school. He thanked Nlr. Peter Carver for stepping in to fill the gap left by the unfortunate illness of Mr. Belcher. In announcing the departure of seven members of the staff, the headmaster referred to the many contributions they have made to the school during their stay here. After the Valedictory given by Peter Noel-Bentley and Michael Spencer, a presentation of roses was made by john Bond, one of the school's youngest members, to Mrs. Hay, wife of the guest speaker. The guest speaker, His Excellency David O. Hay, D.S.O., XLBL., Australian High Commissioner to Canada, gave an informative address stressing the need for closer co-operation between commonwealth countries. He described the valuable contributions that the youth tours of Britain and the Commonwealth had made in promoting a wider understanding of our neighbours in the world. He concluded by thank- ing the school for giving him the opportunity to speak to the boys at this closing ceremony. A special presentation was made to Mr. Harry Noonan, the care- taker of the school, for his thirty-five years of service. The graduating class then presented a painting of the school to Klr. Perry. This beautiful picture had very kindly been painted by Nlrs. Pontbriand and was gratefully received by the headmaster. Academic and athletic prizes were then awarded to numerous boys for their elforts over the past year. These prizes were presented by His lfxcellency john Knox, Ambassador of Denmarkg Alex lidmison, Esq., B.A.Q.C., Nlcniber of the National Parole Board of Canada, Group Captain D. C. H. Nlussells. D.S.O., O.B.E., D.F.C., C.D., Commanding Officer of R.C..-LF. Station Uplandsg Robert S. Hyndman, Canadian artist, and A. B. R. Lawrence. Esq, M.C., Q.C. His Excellency David O. Hay then presented the ,,f,3 THE ASHBURIAN Headmaster's Cups, the Charles Rowley Booth Memorial Trophy and the Governor General's Medal. Following the distribution of prizes the weather had cleared sufficiently to permit serving tea on the front lawn. Music was pro- vided bv' the Band of the Governor General's Foot Guards. The playing 'of the national anthem brought to a close another successful year in the school's history. VALEDICTORY Delivered by P. Noel-Bentley and M. Spencer, Head Boys Spencer: As many of you will have no doubt observed, we have run up against the same problem that faced Wilson and Sarkis in their Valedic- tory last year. So we have decided that the best idea would be to steal,- and adapt, - their style of presentation to our own needs, and to alternate our speeches. just before Pete takes over, may I say how pleased and honoured we both are to be able to speak on behalf of the graduating class of 1961. Noel-Bentley: To-day, we of the graduating class have reached a plateau in our lives. To-day represents that decision which will send each of us towards his own brand of success. To-day, the hearts of Ashbury's young men are filled with the hopes an-d aspirations of their high-Hown ambitions. VVe are filled with that fabulous feeling of escaping the limitations imposed on earth-bound mortals. However, along with these soaring emotions comes an acute nostalgia. I have spent eight years of my life here at Ashbury. As Tennyson says in his "Ulysses", "I am a part of all that I have met". I cannot help but be a part of my stay here. Nor can any of my contemporaries, no matter how vociferously they deny it. Of course, being a part of everything one has met is not always desirable. True, we have sunward climbed on "study-silvered" wings, but we have also joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds, doing a hundred things Mr. Perry has not dreamed of. But even "study- silvered" wings by itself is not enough. The world's great men have not commonly been great scholars, nor its scholars great men. Some- thing more is needed, -something called character, which really only means "moral force". By using study as its means, this school's aim is to bring out in its boys the moral force to give everything all they've got, to teach them that in the lexicon of youth, there is no such word as "fail", lt is hoped that the graduates of this school, to-day's "leaders of tomorrow", will go out into the world with the attitude that life's like a good pipe. Nhat you get out of it depends on what you put into it. THE ASHBURIAN 103 I suppose that if study were the only means. any school could achieve what Ashbury actually does. Ashbury's advantage lies within its four walls. Mother Duck teaches her youngsters to swim by heaving them into the water. Mother Ashbury similarly teaches her students to get along with each other by thrusting all two hundred and eighty-five of them together, and to accept responsibility by placing on the students' own shoulders the mantle of responsibility. I Ience, the system of Room-Captains, Monitors, and Prefects. I think that every graduate here to-day should be thankful this afternoon for having been prepared so well for the life of the years to come. Perhaps incidentally, I would like to add that I am also thanking the school for the friendships I have made here. I will never forget them. That's one thing the future can't take from me. I will close now Cand let Mike have his sayj with a message to the graduating class of 1961 - good luck - and a message from this group - thank you, Ashbury. Spencer: Only three years ago, I first arrived at Ashbury after having received a grounding in the life of a private school by attending "a lesser institution of learning", as Mr. Perry calls our rivals. In this short time I have been associated with a group of boys that any school would be proud to call its members. Now many of these same boys are. like myself, leaving Ashbury, and are setting out in a search for wider horizons. At this time, we, the members of the graduating class, are filled with mixed emotions. We are impatient to advance and to enter society to take our place as men, but still we feel a deep sense of sadness that this chapter of our lives is drawing to a close, and that we must leave the security that Ashbury represents. Now we are faced with the prospect of sliding down the razor-blade of life, but, due to the encouragement that we have received in our school life, we feel ready to meet this challenge. A Day Boy attending Ashbury spends approximately three-quarters of his waking day here, while a boarder will pass three-quarters of the entire year in residence. Consequently it is the lessons they learn here and the examples they follow that will decide to a great extent by what standards their future life will be moulded. In the lower grades. it becomes usually a battle of wits between the pupil and his teacher. Still, our instructors manage to endure our contrariness, and we progress upward and gradually come to realize that we owe a great debt of gratitude to our teachers and coaches for all the time and effort they have given in developing our own special talents. however hidden they ,na THE ASHBURIAN may be. As we become more mature in our outlook we understand that the world does not owe us a living, as we once believed, but rather it is up to us, and us alone, to succeed on our own merits without asking for favours from others. After all, it is only our own effort and interest that will lead us to any measure of success in academics, and later, in everyday life itself. Ashbury has never attempted to become a factory, producing boys that meet the required standards, but adding little more. More impor- tant than any set of results is the development of character that the staff of this school work so hard to bring about. You cannot break character down and examine it under a microscope or analyze its component parts. lYe are taught, whether in the classrooms, on the playing fields, or in the Chapel, the fundamental principles and high standards which many boys before us have learned, followed and used to advantage in making their way in the world. In conclusion, I would like to say what a great honour I consider it to be chosen with Peter to give the Valedictory on behalf of the graduating class of 1961. I assure you that we will all do our best to uphold the Ashbury motto of "Probitas, Virtus, Comitas"-Honour, Courage, and Grace. PRESENTATION SPEECH TO THE HEADMASTER Delivered by the Co-captains of the School on Closing Day As valedictorian for the graduating class of 1961, I have one more chore to attend to - a very delightful one indeed, that of presenting to our Headmaster, Mr. R. H. Perry, a small token of our appreciation and gratitude for all that he has done for us over the past years. VV ere it not for Mr. Perry, that three-sided square in which we would be sitting, except for the rain, would be but a two-sided triangle. In short, there would be no Argyle. For another example, just look outside. All those young trees, over Hfteen hundred of them, were planted during the last eleven years - the length of Mr. Perry's tenure. For numerous other examples, wander around to the back of the school, and look at the new lab, the new locker room, the garages, and the workshop. But these are only the material benefits that Mr. Perry has brought with him. The really important things are a new student-teacher rela- tionship, the father image he projects, and the pride in our school he has instilled in all of us. And so, Mr. Perry, we ask you to accept a portrait of your school, our school, painted so very kindly for us by Mrs. Pontbriand. THE ASHBURIAN 105 LITERARY SECTIGN Boys are sometimes hesitant about letting their creative instincts take free rein, and in order to add material encouragement to those with a latent interest in writing for the Ashburian, the editors launched a contest with prizes to be awarded for the best piece of prose submitted and for the outstanding verse selection. Uhile the response was some- what discouraging, it appears likely that the experiment will be repeated in years to come. For his concise and accomplished narrative style, Adam Podhradsky of VIC was awarded the prize for the best prose contribution. Regret- tably, it was not felt that any of the verse submissions came up to a standard worthy of recognition. For this reason the prize for the best verse has been withheld. Podhradsky's prize-winning story, "Revenge is Seldom Sweetw appears below. REVENGE IS SELDOM SIYEET As I gazed upwards, I noted with great satisfaction that there was no moon tonight. I felt the keen edge of my butcher knife and smiled grimly. Every day for fifteen years 1 had vowed vengeance, and now at last my wildest dreams were about to be realized. I recalled vividly that fateful day many years ago, when I had been only a young man in the prime of life, that day when "he', sentenced me to fifteen years of imprisonment. I had been shocked. Imagine, fifteen years on a false charge! Every one had scorned me then. My friends forsook me, and the papers turned me into some dreaded "Frankenstein',. Even other prisoners had refused to associate with me. My life had been a nightmare. One person alone believed in my innocence. He came often to visit me and to try to comfort me. His name was Carl, and as far as I knew he had no last name. We had gone to school together, al- though we hadn't been in the same class. I had done him a good turn once, and he certainly never forgot it. I could DOE have lived through all those terrifying years if it had not been for Carl's encouragement. "Some-a-day,'l he'd say in his broken English, "some-a-day youlll-a be a free-a man." I was suddenly brought back to reality by the sound of distant footsteps. He was coming at last, the judge who was the cause of all my sufferings. I had gone over my plan again and again, until every detail was perfect, the time, the place, the weapon, all were perfect. Nearer and nearer he came, until he was beside me and I leaped out. clutching his mouth tightly. I then dragged him into the dark alley, plunging my knife into his hateful body. Again and again I stabbed, I I l M5 THE ASHBURIAN releasing fifteen years of fury and hatred. This was my moment of glory, the day I had planned and waited for. My revenge had come at last. Isle fell to the ground clutching his wounds and gasping. Hysteri- cally I laughed with joy. Then slowly I wiped the great stains of blood from my knife and replaced the weapon in my pocket. I was in no hurry, for few people came this way, and I wanted my moment of glory to linger. A morbid curiosity and desire to see his wretched face all twisted and bent in the pain of death came over me. I lit a match and gleefully bent over to look. What I saw made me let out a shriek of terror. For, horror of horrors, the face that glared up at me with glassy, bloodshot eyes was not the face of judge Norton, but that of my best friend, Carl. PODHRADSKY-VIC RUSTIC MAIL Old R.R. No. 1 lies, in part, along the Queen Elizabeth way. Having taken up my abode in this district, I got a little curious a while back and began inquiring why I wasn't getting my mail. I was in- formed that this was because I didn't have any rural mail box to put it in. This came as a bit of a shock because, as a city dweller for some years, I'd got used to receiving mail as a matter of course, like turning on a tap or switching on a light. You just looked in your mail box every day and there it was - or it wasn't. Putting up a mail box is not as easy as it sounds. First you'd have to go to a post office department and get a form. The form is fairly easy until you get to the part when the Post Office Department wants to know just where you are going to erect the object in question. Then it starts to get really complicated. XVhat township, for instance, is easy. Any citizen who doesn't know what township he's in doesn't deserve any mail. VVhat concession line is a little tougher if youire not up in the geography of the district, but then comes the ace of spades. It just says this: "meridian", Sure enough, they accepted my money order for S54 and it wasn't long after that a brand new shiny silver mail box arrived with my name stencilled on it. It arrived by mail too. I could take time out here to explain how you can get a mail box by mail when you can't get any mail until you can get your mail box, but that would only confuse the issue further. Ilaving received my mailbox, I had to get it set up beside the highway. You can't just leave a mailbox sitting in your garage or down in the cellar and expect to get any mail. Not even if you know what meridian you are living on. First I had to scurry around to get a post. This l accomplished fairly easily by the black of night. Then I had to hire a post hole digger. A post hole digger is quite an in- genious tool. lt's like an oversized auger. Shouldering my mailbox, THE ASHBURIAN 107 my post, and my posthole digger, I went up the highway and started operations. This was probably the most trying piece of the whole project. Theres a traHic light a short way down the highway, and every now and then the cars would come to a halt directly beside my excavation. Not having anything else to do while they were waiting, the motorists kept giving me advice. At one stage of the business a whole bus load stopped beside my diggings. All the passengers on my side leaned out of the window and started directing operations. "It looks like you're going down on a bit of a slant," said one elderly lady. "You have to go a bit deeper than that," said a gent in a grey fedora. "Be sure to get down below the frost line," said another. Acknowledging all this advice with as much grace as possible, I tried the post in the hole and, sure enough, she was on a slant to the east. "I told you there was a slant," said the elderly lady. I didn't get a chance to reply to this because the light changed and the bus started away. I don't know just what I would have said if the bus had stayed a moment longer. Anyway, my slanting box is now sitting there waiting to receive the mail. I hope I got her in time to catch the winter catalogues. I still don't know what meridian she's sitting' on. So if any of my creditors are listening, I can tell them that there's no use sending me a bill until they Hnd this out. All letters not bearing the right meridian marked plainly on the envelopes will probably be returned stamped "Address Unknown".

THE .4sH1zUR1.4iv 10, MY EXPIiRII:1NCIf.S IN FRICNCII CAN.-XIJA The more carefully we read history. the clearer it becomes that the year 1763, rather than 1867, marks the real birth of our Canadian nation. For it was in that year that France ceded all Canada to Britain, and in 177-lf, the Quebec Act became the .Xlagna Carta of our countrv. By this Act the language and culture "de la province de Quebec" were retained. For several years I had the unusual experience of attending a summer camp in Quebec. XYhat made it unique was the fact thatfthe camp was operated and administered in the French language. Xlost of the boys came from the province of Quebec and were fluent in French. Others, like myself, came from another province or the United States to learn French while enjoying a summer vacation. I found living among boys of a different culture a distinct change. Their language, methods of thinking and many customs were relativelv alien to our own. The main difference, of course, was the language. The French Canadians speak their native tongue in a musical sort of way. The inflections are up and down, with hands keeping time. Swear words are seldom used, but all the boys I knew spolfe a healthy slang. The French Canadians are possessive of their language and do not readily teach it to others. However, this difficulty is partly overcome since all English speaking boys are obliged to take French lessons from a teacher who speaks only French. The native songs of the French are delightful. The boys sing them with a gaiety, a greater feeling of affection and ownership than we do. The Canadians in Quebec possess many folk songs which pass from one generation to another. They are often based on activities such as: logging, sleighing, hunting and hiking. Some of the favourites are such songs as "Vive la Canadienne" and "Bonhomme! Bonhommelu The food is also different. The French evening meal is a "soupe" or supper, the equivalent of the English "dinner", is served at noon. Even on hot days, hot soups are always served instead of cool salads. Legs from huge frogs or "grenouilles" caught in nearby swamps make a fried delicacy and taste like chicken. Sometimes at Camp Ecole Trois-Saumans, I used to think what an experience it was to be able to live in Old Quebec and to see at first hand how French Canadians differ from English Canadians. By learning each other's language and way of life, we shall in time become a greater Canadian nation.

Relatives will regard their boys With a grand parental air, Girl friends gaze with sighs aloud, "They are so debonair". Graduates, with excited eyes, Think of an ivied wall, i While 'round their pensive forms are heard "See you again next fall." NlARTIN-XVIC THE ASHBURIAN Ill DID YOU EVER IIAYIC ONIQ UF TIIUSIC DAYS? It was one of those typical Turkish summer days. I knew the sun would shine, the sky would be cloudless, the noisy army trucks would rumble up and down the hill, and another day would' pass eventless. But what I didn't foresee was wfiat would happen later on in the day. VVhen I had finished making my bed and eating a delicious break- fast, I calmly lay down on our balcony and soaked in the morning sun. But in the middle of my sun bath, along came some of my American friends. After we had talked for half an hour, we decided to go for a walk. This was the beginning of the catastrophe. Before long we had walked quite a distance - more than two miles from my house - and we began to get hungry. One of the boys, the fattest, knew where a nearby orchard was and led us to it. People say that teenagers eat more than normal people, well, it may be true, for in no time at all we had eaten nearly all the ripe apples. This was my mistake, but I didn't know it at the time. After all, I was one of the boys, and where the boys went I went. Then, out of nowhere, a dozen Turkish teenagers attacked us. One yelled, "Yank, go home!" Before I had time to think, I felt some- thing hit my back. I was terrified. Then it happened. There was a terrific explosion. My shirt was blown off my'back, and that's all I can remember of what happened. The next thing I can remember is lying on my stomach in bed. A nurse was bandaging my back, and friends were sitting in one corner of the room. I could hear the odd comment from the boys- "Do you think he'll live?" or "Is he EVER in a bad way!" At Hrst I thought they were crazy, then I moved a little and felt a sharp pain surge through me, and I realized they weren't crazy. IVell, after a few weeks, I could walk and sit down quite normally and without too much pain. I found out from the boys that the Turks had run after they had thrown the bomb, and were never seen again in that section of town. I hope I never have another day like that one again. Baooks - YID CITY BY NIGI IT To me, a big city is at the peak of its beauty after the sun has set. For many people, night means an escape from the hurly-burly of hurrying, sweating crowds. The store-keeper breathes a sigh of relief after the trials of the day are over. Chances are he will go home. have supper and relax. However, for a good percentage of the population Cincluding tourists and visitorsj the night means a time of revelry and activity. 113 THE ASHBURIAN For the most part, establishments which have been shuttered during the daylight hours open their doors to the throngs of people out on the town. If one strolls slowly down a busy thoroughfare, he will see hordes of happy people walking, arms linked, through a cataract of brilliant lights. As far as the eye can see, a great line of neon brilliance shakes its way between towering buildings. Music and laughter fill the air as people from all walks of life savour the night-life of the big city. ' Night-clubs, casinos, restaurants, bars, dance-halls, theatres, and countless other places of amusement swallow up the merry-makers as they throng forth. Others, of a different breed, their minds full of love, beauty, sorrow, dejection and the many other thoughts which assail the human brain, stroll quietly along, marvelling at the works of man mingled with those of nature. vSome walk by the river, watching great liners and small craft idling along the silvery surface of the water. The reflections of the sky- scrapers, the millions of lights and the illuminated statues dance upon the surface and create an impression of beauty which seems to have been wrested from the artist's canvas and touched up by Nature's hand. Following the course of the river is the throughway, a monument to man's genius, on which thousands of assorted vehicles rush back and forth, weaving a multi-coloured pattern with their lights which ring the city and the river like a distorted halo of blended colours. People, like machines, cannot go on forever. As the coming day draws near, the multitudes cease their movements and lie inanimate, caught in the soothing oblivion of undisturbed sleep. The man who is alone walks the streets, streets which sparkle under morning's moisture, and are bathed in an orange glow from the first exploring fingers of the rising sun. It is now, one would say, that the world is still, as empty roads and streets look bare, lined with rows of garbage cans or, in the better districts, drooping trees and Howers. But, upon careful observation, the lonely watcher perceives slight movements along the main lines of travel as the early-rising commuters infiltrate the city. Stores gradually are opened and the day begins anew. XVhat of the night folk? They are still asleep, gathering energy for the next eventful round of life in the city by night. A'1ARTlN - VIC ON SEEING XVHAT IS AROUND US Very few of us see what is around us. XVe see only what is evident. VVe see only things which announce themselves. XVe recognize a bus by its roar. a child by his laugh, a friend by his greeting. Vlie are lost without our newspapers, radio and television. If one was to live a week without these conversation replacements, one would feel lost, one would be dismissed from the company of others as being uninformed. The THE ASHBURIAN 113 truth is that we slide by the things that are worth seeing as a ship in a fog bypasses an island. It is aware of the island only if the lighthouse is flashing and the foghorn blasting. If one walks along a quiet, suburban avenue, what does one see and absorb? He reads the signpost ten feet away, but fails to notice the variety of flowers in the bed at his feet. llc hears the whine of a plane, and looks up-it's a jet, CF-100, but what about the flock of birds resting in the spreading branches above him. From across the street comes the teasing smell of frittering chicken legs. Ile licks his lips and misses the fragrance of the tulips from over his shoulder. But here! I am stating that one sees Klan but misses Nature. This is not always so. A middle aged businessman, briefcase in hand, mounts a bus, he does it every morning. He deposits his fare, notices the new driver, but fails to see the colour difference of his transfer. He walks to his seat, sits beside the woman who is always there, sees her white gloves, but misses her white bag and shoes. True, these are frivolous things. And yet. he may be driven all through the town without noticing that all flags are at half mast. At lunch he hears that the King has died, going home a night- oh yes, look, the flags ARE at half mast. To be observant, one need not see everything. One can see a single tree and know it is time for red foliage to bedeek our autumn highways. One can see a single little bird and know that the time when nests hold their precious load of eggs has come and gone. I have stated that few persons are truly observant in the full sense of the word. There are two classes of observers - scientific and artistic. A scientist sees the world from a haughty throne of formulae and equations. He knows why plants are green, how things grow, why things happen as they do. He observes with his mind. But a man who sees with his heart and does not really know why things happen, just as they miraculously do, is definitely not a scientist. Wonder causes curiosity. The wonder of an artistic mind causes that mind to glorify Nature. In contrast, the knowledge of a scientific mind causes that mind to disdain Nature. The one looks about him like a child in a palace. the other like a King in a log cabin. Most of us really see very little, but we are satished that we see enough. VV e don't much care for things strange to us, things that may need investigation. This is the result of our warped desire for material and not spiritual gains. How different we are from men of other ages is shown in our misguided desires. Vl'e look at those old foolish days of noble longings and noble strivings, and we realize that these are wise. wise, days when we know that money is the only thing worth struggling for, when we willingly miss everything which is of no material benefit to us, and Work our wav blindly through a barren life. i i 5 Coopriz - Upper YI THE ASHBURIAN EXAM FERVOUR As exams begin to threaten, Tension mounts in every heart, Every boy his studies strengthens In the hope of better marks. Boys arise in early morn To learn again what they have lost, To cram their best before the storm, The storm that spells the feared last post. But soon that dreadful time is o'er, The boys relax, their work is done, They've done their best, can do no more, Can settle down to summer's fun. STEVEN-VIA BLOODSHED Form IVA was bumping and thumping and jumping, But then as by magic the door it was opening, And there on the threshold a master was standing, The room became silent, the pupils were trembling, The classroom emptied much faster than light, But one poor pupil stayed for his plight, The classroom door closed, and a howling ensued, And when it was opened the master was pooed, But nary a sign where the pupil had stood, But a wide pool of blood - and we all understood. TI-IE VVORLD OF SUNRISE lYhen the sun and the moon Vie for rights to the sky, And the darkness is broke As the world comes awake To the sound of the birds, lt's then that I think Of the joys of this world, Forget prospect of war, And the troubles of life, And try to remember Such things as sunrise, And birds on the wing. BROWN LASH-IVA I - VIC THE AsHBUR1.4N IH CHAOS On june 5th, 1975, the City of Ottawa suffered a nuclear attack which completely demolished this once beautiful city and began the One XVeek XVar. As previously expected the only building to remain standing was Ashbury College, a former boys' school which, due to an architectural quirk, was built along the lines of an atomic shelter. To this last bastion of freedom the government of Canada retired to rule the country. The loyal members of the Ashbury College Cadet Corps threw up defensive positions around the school grounds and, with their XYorld VVar II 303 rifies, staunchly prepared to defend their country's leaders. Meanwhile, inside the building, Civil Defense authorities with the help of the corps' efficient signal squad set up a radio station with the optimistic call letters HELP. It was over this station that various members of the government broadcast messages of hope to the nation. First the Prime Minister, speaking from the Prefect's commonroom in both French and English announced that he was safe and that he would govern the country to the best of his ability. Then the Finance Minister, broadcasting from the Bursar's Ofhce, said that he was glad to say that unemployment had taken a sharp decline. The main reason for this decline he stated was that the bomb had scored a direct hit on the Unemployment Bureau but he felt certain that this indicated a definite trend. He closed his remarks by saying that he was sorry to have to announce that, due to the current world situation, Canada's budget, during the next fiscal year, would once again remain unbalanced. From the kitchen came word from the Minister of Agriculture that everything possible was being done about the wheat surplus which he fervently hoped was still a surplus. Next from the former Head Masters office word was received that the Minister of External Affairs felt that. viewed in the light of recent developments, Canada's policy of neutrality should be definitely realigned. However, the most encouraging item came from the Laboratory. There the Minister of Defence announced that work was being started on a secret weapon which he felt sure would turn the tide of war. It was learned that the secret weapon was a new form of gas which had been discovered at Ashbury itself. Parliament, meanwhile, continued in session discussing such weighty problems as whether or not the divorce laws should be altered and also a private member's bill put forward by a certain outspoken Torontonian. Mr. Pashing, that the officials responsible for the planting of poison ivy around the statute of Sir Robert Borden be investigated. During these troublesome days the Lower House met in Rhodes Hall and the Upper House in the Chapel. Un june 8th, however, an air of excitement prevailed when the Speaker called both chambers together in the Argyle Assembly Hall. In a hushed House he demanded to know who was 116 THE ASHBURIAN rwponsible for plugging the toilets and at the same time gave a severe warning that, should the Hre-alarm bell be mysteriously rung once again, the proroguing of parliament would be delayed one week. After this affairs ran more smoothly until, a week after the initial bombing, the Republic of Lower Smog, realizing that it was from her territory that the fatal bomb had been launched, sent a note of regret to the Canadian Government. VVhen a runner arrived with the news, parliament was hastily called and after a heated debate decided that, since the roof had started to leak, and since the loyal cadets, after being out of doors for a week were not quite so loyal, the apology should be accepted along with a substantial cash indemnity. So ended the One W'eek VVar. To-day, if you should pass Ashbury College, the institution which so nobly served its country, you can see many plaques commemorating the great event, the most prominent being "Danger - Building Condemned". GILL-VIA ODE TO THE ASHBURY CHOIR To Chapel on Sunday come the boys, Yelling and yawning, bundles of noise. Stampede to the Library to get clad In cassock and surplice, it's quite mad. The 'gMothers" are there to help in the fray, To button and tidy, to hurry the stray, Standing duty, comb in hand, Catching each unruly strand. XVhat a bun fight, 'til the call, Then 25 cherubs line up in the hall, Proceed to the service, faces grim. VVith voices clear they sing each hymn. In cassocks red and surplice white, Like little candles burning bright. The service over, they pound down the hall. "The tuck shop's open", comes the call. Cassocks are hung, surplices too, Slightly tipsy and all askew, Once more it's a bun fight, hectic with noise The cherubs transformed into normal boys. CHOIR MOTHER THE ASHBURIAN 111' NIGHT ON THE TINll3IfRI.lNl'I, Dusk falls slowly and night's dark veil shrouds the dreary, snow covered land. The stars come out and the full moon shines brightly and the trees in its light look like ghostly statues. As night drawis on, the Aurora Borealis drifts like a Howing curtain across the sky. The haunting cry of the timber wolf pack rends the peace of the wilderness. A moose jerks up its splendid head, knowing that it is the hunted. It starts to run and again the wolf cry haunts the night. Soon it is all over. The moose's body is dripping in still warm blood after a long drawn out fight. A few dead wolves lie about on the battleground. After the feast the wolves settle down to sleep and the small furry animals creep out of their holes to see if it is safe to gather food once more. The night is once again peaceful. LYNN II -- IVA THE CASE AGAINST CAPITAL PUNISHNIENT "Capital Punishment must be banned, and capital punishment will be banned! " A thunderous cheer swept through the .great hall at these final words of Senator VVilliams' fiery speech. It had been a wonderful speech. VVilliams had illustrated clearly and concisely why capital punishment must be dispensed with. He had argued down every point in favour of capital punishment and had reinforced those points against it. As he Walked off the stage I noticed on his mouth a faint smile of triumph which said clearly that he knew the people of the state of Washington would vote against capital punishment when they went to the polls in a week's time. I wondered what drove this man to go from state to state making his ruthless attack on capital punishment. I didn't know, but I was very soon to find out. Two Weeks later I was taking a business trip to Los Angeles and whom did I find myself sitting beside in the airliner but Senator VVilIiams. IVe fell to talking and I mentioned that I had heard his speech in Washington state. He was extremely pleased to hear that I agreed with him 100 per cent. He was in such excellent spirits and let out great guffaws of laughter so frequently that I dared to ask him what was on my mind - namely, what it was that drove him. As soon as the Words had left my mouth I regretted them, for the Senators face became hard and expressionless. Then finally he agreed with a sigh to tell me his story. "I used to be married," he began, "but my marriage had been an extremely unhappy one. I quarrelled continually with my wife, and one day, when I had been in an extremely bad mood, I had threatened to kill her. VVell, when I came home from work the next day, to my horror and disbelief, I found her lying on the Hoor dead. She had been IIN THE ASI-IBURIAN stabbed with a pair of scissors. I phoned the police immediately, and thev began to investigate. It turned out that a neighbour had heard meithreaten my wife, and in no time at all I was accused of the murder of mv wife. Ar my trial it was speedily established that I had hated mv wife and would have liked nothing better than to see her dead. l didn't have a leg to stand on, and in a few days I was convicted of murder in the Hrst degree and sentenced to death in the electric chair." Even as he spoke, I recalled the incident of two years before. It had been in every paper and on the radio. Only that man had been called jones, so jones had changed his name to IVilliams, I mused to myself as the Senator continued with his story. "XVell, I spent two 1nonths in my death cell, two months waiting to die, through no fault of my own. Every second was precious to me. As I would wake up in the mornings and suddenly recall where I was, I would on occasion be seized with hysterical fits, during which I would cry and scream like a baby. Every day I vowed a hundred times that, if ever I got out of this mess, I would do my best to abolish capital punishment. I told myself that even if a man were a killer he didn't deserve to go through that waiting. Once I had been shaved and prepared to die when my execution was miraculously delayed for a week. A sharp detective had turned up a new clue. He had found some I.O.U.'s in my wife's drawer, and in no time at all he had managed to prove that she was killed for gambling debts. I was released. I changed my name, and here I am doing what I vowed I would do." XV e sat in silence the rest of the trip. At the airport we parted and two hours later I was in my comfortable hotel room. I switched on my radio just in time to catch the closing words of Senator NVilliams' speech. "Capital punishment IDLISIZ be banned, and capital punishment will be banned!" And I knew in my heart that it would be banned if he kept at it. Let us hope it is. PODHRADSKY-6C EVENING GN THE MOORS The moors, habitually grey and ghostly, were unusually eerie on this particular evening. Clouds of mist Hoated past the moon, creating ghostly shapes. The occasional gust of wind shook the reeds, and a whispering rustle filled the air. The grass rippled and shimmered in the moonlight, and the occasional field mouse scurried to his grassy home. The shrill note of a cricket cut into the evening stillness, echoing across the barren wastes. Now and again a cloud drifted across the moon, leaving the moors in eerie darkness.

This vear's liditor has maintained the high standard set by his predecessors, and each year it would appear that this happy state of things cannot continue. The 1962 Editor will certainly be a busy boy to just keep up with the others. It is indeed encouraging to have so many boys making an effort to see their names in print. In later years it is often very satisfying to look back on school days, and to be able to have events easily recalled to mind by seeing your name in the school magazine can make the most skeptical fellow less complacent. So to those who do see their name in print, the Faculty offer congratulations. To the others, we offer encouraging words. It has been difhcult to decide just where some mention should be made about Larry O'Brien's accomplishment in making the lst Ski Team. In recent memory, it is the first time that any junior has made a First Team, and Larry is to be congratulated. One word of advice, however. Sporting ability is no substitute for academic work. It is the boy who can successfully mix both who will eventually make the real leader. EDITORIAL About this time each year the junior School starts to write articles and take pictures for the Ashburian. Generally about three or four boys from each form contribute some useful information, essays and pictures which are most helpful because without their assistance a magazine like this wouldn't go very far. Most of you probably have read last year's foreword and former editorials of past years all of which, in some way or another. state how much the junior section has improved since it started hve years ago. VVithout the hard work and determination of former Ashburian staffs this magazine would not reach its present state. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone concerned in this phase of activity for their excellent work. Thank you. Toxr FLLLER - Editor 122 THE ASHBURIAN JUNIOR HOUSEMASTER'S NOTES It is always good to see the end of the school year arrive for the bovs need a change and the staff needs a rest. VVhen Labour Day is over, however, boys Qalthough many would not admit itj and staff will be anxious to start another full year. The year just past has been a good one. Most of the boys have a healthy desire to do well in the classroom, and one hour of sports five days a week produced some good teams as well as releasing pent up energies. Two important changes were introduced this year which resulted in an improved junior School. Grades Seven and Eight had been getting altogether too large for private school forms and so these grades were split, producing four forms. Cadets, which had included all boys throughout the school, were dropped from the junior programme. In actual practice in the past "Cadets" had meant skating or soccer for UIOSIT of the juniors, and therefore Monday afternoons were devoted to a period termed CULTURE. This turned out to be a pretty elastic term for the boys were treated to a barrage of information ranging from Hypnotism CDL Davisj and Sportsmanship fRough Rider Ron Lancasterl to Space Travel CN.R.C.J and the American Civil VVar CMr. Pembertonj. Our Memorial VVing suffered two losses in the tragic death of young Michael Dennis and of Mrs. Mulhall who had been a House Mother to the boys in the fullest sense of the word for several years. The Wang had its largest complement ever this year, indeed we even ffowed over into the f'Big House" - and here I wish to congratu- late Rowley for his cooperation during the year, he was a great help to me. Miss Lewington, who took over after Mrs. Mulhall, suddenly found herself confronted with forty-four children, and she did a nobie job in coping with the many little problems. My thanks also to the resident staff, Mr. Slattery and Mr. Beetensen Cwhose fine effort in producing our junior Pantomine is mentioned elsewhere in these pagesj, and to the Monitors, particularly to the XYing Commander, Love. MEMORIAL IYING NOTES As far as l can see there have been no difficult problems in the .Xlemorial Wing this year. Everyone has led a very happy life with only minor difficulties, such as having to move some of the smaller boys over to what we called "The Island of The Big House". Every year new boys arrive, so we had to move some of the boys over to a large room in the Senior School so the rooms in the wing would not be too crowded. THE ASHBURIAN 133 Every year it seems to be harder for the masters to pick the top room for the room prize, but with the help of our new matron, .Xliss Lewington, and the masters, the best room each term received its prize of night to the movies and a meal out. The monitors this year have helped to keep law and order through- out the school terms, although it took some time for the new boys to get used to this system. XYhen Xlr. Slattery put out the monitors' book, everything ran smoothly. Unfortunately the two boarding masters, Mr. Slattery and Mr. Beetensen, wil.. not be back next veari We all wish them good luck in the coming years. i I would like to express my thanks to Xliss Lewington for keeping a sharp eye on us and also Nlr. Polk, our Housemaster. fJox.-up Lovi-1, IVi11g Cowrllmnder. DEPARTURES Two junior School staff members have decided to tackle the business world next year and their departure is a great loss to us. Bill Slattery has been associated with Ashbury since 1949 when he arrived as a student. He joined the staff in 11253 and was responsible for many of the practical ideas which have been put into effect in order to consolidate the junior School. He has been the guide and right hand man of the junior Housemaster for the past seven years and we shall miss him. VVe will also miss Mike Sherwood whose enthusiasm both in the classroom and on the playing Helds has stimulated young Ashburians for the past three years. Good luck to you both. JUNIOR SCHOOL CHAPEL NOTES The junior School Chapel Service each morning has become part of the Ashbury boy's daily life with its beautiful hymns, prayers, and reading of the lesson - a part that we will always remember. The choir has done an excellent job this year under the guidance of Mr. Godfrey Hewitt, the choirmaster, and with Hrs. Dalton at the organ. Two important services - the Candle Light service and the Faster Carol service were well attended and very inspiring. At the Candle Light service, the chapel was beautifully decorated with candles on the sides of the pews and on the altar. Besides the magnificent singing of the choir, boys of the junior School up to the Headmaster read the lesson in turn. Since the beginning of the year several boys of the junior School have been devoting some of their time each XYednesday in going to 134 THE ASI-IBURIAN the chapel to be prepared by Mr. Xlonks four chaplainj for confirmation which will be held on May 9th. A report of this service appears else- where in the Ashburian. So in all the chapel has played an important part in the junior School throughout the year. NED BURRITT- Chapel Clerk POETRY READING IYith "The Singer Grows Old", by Audrey Alexandra Brown, as the set piece, this yearls poetry reading contest appeared to be difficult. However, the difficulty of the poem to be read did not discourage the boys who had made up their mind to enter, so it was necessary to con- duct an elimination. Mr. Polk and Mr. Spencer acted as judges, and the large entry was limited to four during a Monday afternoon Culture Period. Frequently one hears of uvery close decisions" from judges, but this year's preliminary was so closely contested that the two judges were discussing the merits of the readers long after the rest of the school had gone home. Ultimately it was decided to send Ned Burritt, David johnson, Tom Fuller and jamie McAulay to final round. A word of encouragement should be given to the two entrants from Form II, Michael Howse and Ian Cosh. To try their ability against boys in Transitus is a feat in itself, and to do well against the older boys would make it appear that the junior School will have readers for years to come. Professor Johnston, from Carleton University, was the judge at the finals. He spoke well of the standard of reading, particularly the obvious feeling for poetry displayed by those taking part. The Junior School winner was Ned Burritt, and his narrow margin of victory was gained for his reading of "Guiseppe the Barber" as his free choice. JUNIOR PUBLIC SPEAKING Those two stalwarts, Tom Fuller and ,lainie McAulay, were once more in contest against each other for the junior Award for Public Speaking. Tom, in an assured manner, used the same speech he had used for an outside contest the week previously -he was told that this was quite legitimate - and convinced the audience that optimism must be an ingredient for true leadership. jamie, on the other hand, prepared a very learned speech on "Time Keeping Throughout the Ages". Al- though well prcpared. it was not as well delivered, giving Fuller that slight edge which enabled him to win the award. NIcI.aughlin and Hearne, both new comers to the public speaking held. also entered. The former spoke authoritatively on "Prisoners of liar". but ignored the judges time signals. Had he kept within the THE ASHBURIAN 125 prescribed time limit, his speech would have been much better. Reiter- ation can only be used successfully by accomplished public speakers! john Hearne, speaking on "London -the lYorld's Greatest Citvn, is to be congratulated for his first attempt. He will still be a junior next year, and will no doubt acquit himself creditably. HUMANE SOCIETY ESSAYS For years now our English teacher, Nlr. Spencer, has been urging us to put more effort into our annual essays for the Rockcliife Auxiliary's awards, with the winning of the Cruickshank Trophy as the ultimate aim. This year we were able to give him what he wanted, for more by good luck than clever management, I was awarded this most prized trophy, and as well as the large silver horse coming to Ashbury for the year, I have a smaller model to remind me of my success. Tom Fuller, my arch rival in many things, was awarded third prize, so this year Ashbury won two of the three awarded. At an assembly of the junior School, our Headmaster, Mr. Perry spoke to us about the work of the Humane Society, and then presented the prizes. Other awards were: Form II Forms IHA and IIIB Form IIIC Transitus A Michael Dollin Philip Mirsky Chris Chown Brian Speedie Michael Petersen john Read Brian Scott Bruce Firestone Bruce Deacon David Berger THE ROYAL CONIMONXYEALTH SOCIETY The Essay Competition, conducted by the Royal Commonwealth Society, Ottawa Branch, was an opportunity for Mr. Spencer, who is a Fellow of the Society, to plug the Commonwealth, with the result that all Forms, from IIIB to Transitus A had to write an essay on one of the three Commonwealth subjects given. The best were re-written, and then written again -in fact l think I wrote mine four times - and were sent off to the Branch Chairman of the Society, to be judged with those from other schools. lYe were very fortunate in that I won first prize and Ned Burritt won second prize. The subject I chose was "Australia" Cas a sop to Mr. Spencer, of course- Editorl and for his creditable performance, Ned chose one Commonwealth city from each of the six continents, and wrote about it, thereby giving himself plenty of research work. The eways were sent to London, to be judged with other essays from Commonwealth boys and girls of the same age group. The prizes were awarded at the Royal Commonweath Society's dinner for Miss Elizabeth Owen, of the parent Branch in London. and were presented to us by I-Iis Excellency, the Iligh Commissioner for lndia to Canada. BRIAN Sviisnuz - Transitus A 1:4 THE ASHBURIAN CARLETON COUNTY OPTIMISTS' CLUB The Optimists' Club Public Speaking Contest this year was the junior Schoolls Hrst major venture into the outside world, as far as Public Speaking is concerned. The contest is really for Seniors, but Xlr. George Mitchell of CBC, who is the Convener, wants to have some experienced boys for next year's contest, and he encouraged two of the promising juniors to enter. Competing against such experienced seniors as l-laslam and Ewing was hard work, but the harder the compe- tition the sweeter the victory. Tom Fuller received an oscar for his efforts, and jamie McAulay a special award for being the youngest contestant, and for showing promise as a future public speaker. The junior School is grateful to Mr. Mitchell for inviting us to take part, and to Mr. Spencer, the Public Speaking and Debating Coach, through whom our participation was organized. VVe look forward to next year's contest, when we hope to carry on the success of Gerry Haslam.

The extensive use made of the reference books for essay purposes has justified the addi- tional expense of bringing this section up to date. Another popular section is the magazine section, receiving regular books covering a wide variety of interests. The most regular customer has been Ewart, from IIIA. He must either read very quickly, or skip thrugh the pages without digesting what he reads. This has frequently been a cause of arguments around the Library during morning break. I suppose any discussion on books or those who read them will help to encourage boys to read more. I certainly hope so. Ton FORAN - Librarian FORM IIIA CLASS TOUR For our autumn class trip, Mr. Spencer took IIIA to the Ottawa Citizen and the Art Gallery. First we went to the Citizen building. We were shown the editor's table, and the desks where the reporters write their stories. Nearby, we saw the complicated machines where news and pictures come into the office from overseas. XVe also saw the machine which gets photographs ready for print. Then we went upstairs to the teletype machines, where the print is made, the molds where the pages are set up in print, and the machines where the notice prints are made. After seeing these machines work, we saw the ink tanks, and printing presses. VV e saw the room where the tremendous rolls of paper are stored, and the miniature rail- way tracks and cars which take the paper to the presses. Then we went upstairs and saw the distributing room, where the newspapers are counted, tied with wire, and sent out to be delivered. VVe went down- stairs again, where we were each given a pen and a booklet about making newspapers. Our next stop was the Art Gallery. VVe went to the fifth floor which was devoted to pictures by a French-Canadian artist. There were abstract pictures, self portraits, and realistic paintings. VVe were divided into two groups, and went around separately. My group, after wandering around for a bit, went down to the second floor, where we saw "The Death of VI'olfe", and a picture which had been found on the face of a HIIILIINIUYH. The "mummy" was buried over 2000 vears ago! ' ' After this, we walked out to a bus-stop, and caught a bus back to school. It was a very interesting class trip, and one which I would like to repeat. J. READ - IIIA THE ASHBURIAN 129 MRS. HOPE MULHALL - AN APPRECIATION As the "oldest inhabitant" of the Memorial XYing, it is my privilege to write a brief note about our late junior Nlatron, Mrs. Xlulhall. "The Mul", as she was affectionately called, was verv kind, especially to us younger boys, and it was a great shock to us' when she so siiddenlv passed away. Some older people think we young folk are thoughtless, but Mrs. Mulhall knew we appreciated her many favours. It was always a treat to have her enthusiastically receive some small tribute. purchased with our pocket money, and every IYednesday, when she came back after her "day off" there would be a line up to see what "the Mul" had brought back for us. It was usually something to eat, of course, not that we are starved, but it IS nice to get something extra, especially just before bedtime. XV e miss jimmy, her grandson, of whom she was so proud. He has no brothers or sisters, and enjoyed his Saturday mornings spent in the Memorial Tiling. To Mr. and Mrs. Vaughan Olrs. Nlulhall's daughterj we send our kindest regards, and assure them that we fre- quently spare an affectionate thought for our late junior Nlatron. Bon SoL'cH - Form IIIC FORM IIIC CLASS TOUR On Friday, October the 28th the Ottawas Humane Society held its annual bazaar. NVhen they have this they occupy the junior School, so for this reason our class went on a tour. We went to several places which included the Parliament Buildings, the Royal Canadian Mint, the Public Archives and the VVar Museum. First we went to the Royal Mint where we were led through all the processes of making coins. Next We Went to the War Museum where many relics of wars that Canada had participated in are stored. There were for example, old guns, torpedoes, models of famous vessels, and aircrafts. I found in- teresting a carriage which was once owned by Lord Dorchester. Following the VVar Museum we went to see the Canadian Archives. VVe saw many pictures of great men who had much to do with the making of Canadian History. There was an old Indian canoe and a large model of what the city of Quebec looked like in the latter part of the 1800's. Finally we visited the Parliament Buildings. First we were taken up to the Peace Tower. lYe saw the carillon bells which are very big. The biggest bell is supposed to weigh more than Hve tons. XYe were then taken to the Memorial Chamber where the names of Canada's IYar Dead are written. The books in which they are written are called The Books of Remembrance. The other things we saw included the House of Commons where Parliament meets, the Red Chamber where the Senate sits, and the Parliamentary Library. This ended a very exciting tour which I wish would have' lasted longer. I Davin BERGER - IIIC IQO THE ASHBURIAN THE PANTOMIME Early last Fall plans were made for CINDERELLA, a pantomime in "good old English traditionw. The Mothers' Guild undertook to sponsor the show, and Work was begun immediately on costumes and sets. Mr. Beetensen, the director, auditioned and cast about fifty boys for the performance and the Ottawa Little Theatre was rented for the night of December 13th. After six weeks of rehearsals, the Panto began to take shape, the horses, mice, pumpkin, ugly sisters and courtiers had gone through their routines and the only chore left to the producer was that of dealing with stage fright. The dress-rehearsal went without a hitch: the pianos had not arrived, Miss lYoodburn was having hysterics, Mr. Beetensen was tear- ing his hair out, the boys had forgotten their lines, the mice had dis- appeared, Cinderella had lost her fhisb voice, and the box office had sold out. lt is a truth universally acknowledged, that boys can be depended upon to get you out of for into . . . l have forgotten which! a jam. THIS :ISHB URI.-IX lil Despite the handicaps it was decided "the show must go on". .Xt 8.15 p.m. the curtain went up on a lonely and rather frightened Cinderella Olacltenxie lj. IYith the entrance of the ugly sisters llfuller and lfariisliawi, the whole cast were put at easeg the audience were splitting their sides. and a few lilies not intended by the author added to the hilarity. The authentic mice marched on stage to the tune ol- 'Quarter- master's Stores' and whispers were heard, "ls he man or mouse?". Not to be outdone, the sisters arrive in the nest scene en route fu the ball riding a tandem to the tune of Daisy, Daisy lljrincev. Princevi and the audience join in the chorus. Rather saddle-sorei one sister exclaims: "XYhen I marry Prince Charming, l'm having cushions on my bicycle". The other retorts: "XYhen l marry Prince Charming l am going to purchase Hr. Perrfs autoinobilefn. The Ballroom scene is carried off with all the pomp, ceremony and polish of the occasion, all the boys having become proficient at dancing the minuet. Some parents are still in doubt as to whether Ashbury imported girls for the occasion, or perhaps some of their boys are attending Elmwood. The evening proved to be an outstanding success and both cast and audience agreed that it had been well worth while.

THE JUNIOR SOCCER TEAM This was the Soccer Teanfs best season. as there were three wins and one tie. As the snow was a long time in coming, we were able to 5 play right up until the Christmas Vacation. The junior Soccer League l games were concluded, and a report of this activity Qwhich enables every boy from IIIC to Transitus A to take partj appears elsewhere. The annual trips to Selwyn House and Sedbergh were great events of the season. There is always lots of keen competition for places on these trips. Might I remind those boys who did not make it that we ean't all make the teams. Coach for the team was Mr. Spencer. Every year he says he is getting too old for the job, but I guess next Fall he will be back there as usual, shouting, bullying and encouraging the team to victory. In l I THE ASHBURI.-IN lsr a way, it might be a good idea if he DID retire. Ile onli' gave two colours this year, to Peter Smith and a new liov, Yie llariea. i 'llie latter had never played soccer before yet he saved the team on more than one occasion and certainly earned the honour awarded him.

UNDER 14 HOCKEY This was one of the best seasons that the junior Team has had for several years. Every year the team's main goal is to beat Rockcliffe School and under the able coaching of Mr. Sherwood the team accom- plished this goal. Colours were awarded to Doug McMillan, Peter Smith and David Gamble. Scores below will show the record of the team. Out of the nine games played there were 7 wins, 4 losses and 1 tie.

' UNDER 13 HOCKEY Asbbzrry at L.C.C. lVe started on our journey at about seven o'clock and by about 8:30 we were on the train heading for Montreal. lt was a very scenic and pleasant train trip and we arrived in Montreal at about 10:30. From the station we Went to the school where we immediately donned our equipment for the big game. Then we went into the enormous indoor rink and started play. After that game we thought we had played well even though we lost it. After lunch we played basketball in their gym and at 4:00 we left for home having had a very enjoyable time. L.C.C. at Ashbury L.C.C. arrived at about 11.30 by bus. Then we all had lunch in the dining hall and afterwards we 'showed them around the school. At about 1:00 we got readv for the game and at 1:30 the game com- menced with both teams being very eager to play. From the very ms THE ASHBURIAN beginning of the game until the end both teams fought extremely hard, so as to produce a 4-all tie. .ffJ'f1f7I1l"V at Selfwyn XYC left Saturday morning by bus at about 9: 30. The day wasn't a particularly good one but it was a fine trip down. VVe arrived at Selwyn at approximately 12 o'clock where we were shown around the school and later had lunch. After lunch we went directly to the Xleflill University Arena. We felt pretty happy about that game as the final score was 11-4 for us. XVe were to return by bus but because of the weather we were forced to return home by train. SL'f'1L'.VlI nr ASb177l7"V The Selwyn House hockey team arrived at Ashbury at 10: 30 where they started to get ready for the game. The game started at 11:30 and all through the game everybody played their positions well. VVe finally won the game after a well fought game by both teams. Then we showed them around the school and had lunch at 12.00. Ashiaznfy nt Sedbergh XYe arrived at Sedbergh at about 2 p.m., and then we started the task of putting on our equipment. Because they seldom played hockey, instead of our under 13 team we put on our under 12 team. The final score was a 5-1 victory for us. Then we were shown around the school and later we had refreshments in their dining hall. Sedbergh at Asbbrnfy Sedbergh arrived at 1:30 and the game began at 2 p.m. After playing for a short time we learned that their team had only been playing hockey once a week so to make the game more evenly matched we used our under 12 team. Both teams played well and the final score was 5-l for Ashbury. After the game both teams were served refresh- ments in the dining hall. BURRITT ,IUNIOR CRICKLCT 'l'I-f.X.Xl Back R0-12: C. L.

All the boys who were on the l3ishop's Trip this year will remember it as "Mr, Spencer's weekend excursion", as we had two days away and not one ball was bowled. However. the five hours in Klon- treal and the weekend at The New Sherbrooke Hotel were certainly enjoyable, for the team, if not for the Coach. The first game against Bishops was highlighted by the excellent Helding. There was a true "cricket spirit" about that game. and we were sorry that we could not continue the battle down at Lennoxville. VVhen Sedbergh came to visit Ashbury we played so well, taking the Held first, that we thought it was all over when we went in to bat. However, the Sedbergh boys played havoc with our batsmen. and we lost the game. On the return visit-the Saturday between the examina- tions-the whole team was so happy to have a fine day on which to relax, there was a picnic atmosphere about the game. Sedbergh entertained us to a fine lunch, fno doubt trying to "fatten us up" so that we could not runj and at the end of the game, which we narrowly won. all agreed that our visit to that school was a highlight of the short season. The bowling and batting of a new player, Chris Collyer, made it a foregone conclusion as to who would win the award for the Xlost Improved Player. His "hat trick" at Sedbergh was the first in inter- school play for many years. john Read's bowling and batting made it appear that he, too, would be in line for recognition. and he was awarded his colours at the final Readover.

JUNIOR TRACK AND FIELD It is very hard to write about this activity as the Editor Wants it before the exams start. yet all the results come after Closing. However, one important event was the Montreal Track Meet. Doug Finlay was chosen from the junior School to go with the team to that event, and he did reasonably well there. Busy preparing for the School Sports are all the enthusiasts on the Held. Under the coach, Mr. Sherwood, they will certainly be doing their best to break records on Sports' Day. On the day after Closing is the Interschool Track Meet. There are several contenders for honours, and they will certainly be doing their best on that day. POLK - II HOUSE AND LEAGUE GAMES All juniors except about twenty-five of the smallest were placed on one of six soccer league teams. The smallest ones are on "The Farm" and look forward to the day when they can break into the big league.

The lloekey League was an exciting race right to the final game when Detroit, Boston, New York and Chicago won playoff spots. Detroit beat New York 5-I, and Boston won over Chicago 4-3.

This year there was a record number of entries, and a record number of spectators had assembled. Thirty-two boats, each with its crew of two, were out to capture the trophy from last ycar's winners. .-Xt the moment, it looked as though one of them might be success- ful in the attempt, for the two boys in question seemed to be in quite a Hap and looked as though they would never make the race. As usual, they had left everything to the last minute and now they were frantically trying to make the preparations that should have been made hours ago. To save the embarrassment of being watched by ridiculing eyes they had snubbed their little craft on the side of the dock that gave them the greatest protection from view. Unfortunately, this was not the side that gave them the greatest protection from wind and wave. As a result precious minutes were being wasted in desperately trying to stave off the sides of the dock, against which the boat was pounding, and to bale out the water which the waves were lashing over the gun- wales. However, they were miraculously under sail and more or less ready for the starting gun. Of the thirty-three dinghies contesting, four made a false start, Hfteen made a hopelessly bad start, and three soon dropped far back in the race. Among the other eleven, our two heroes, last year's winners, lay in Hfth place, where they remained until the last buoy was rounded. Here six boats were clumsily handled and dropped back. Five were left. Slowly our two champs edged into fourth po- sition. During the next twenty minutes they moved up from fourth to third, from third to second, finally they were in first place. But what is this? They are seen to be in trouble as their craft comes up into the wind, sails Happing wildly, and frantic activity aboard, while their competitors pass them-one after the other. Their rudder has jumped from its brackets, but fortunately the tiller is still in the skipper's hands. At last it is back in place and the race resumed. But surely for them it is a lost cause! llowever, no race is really lost until it is over, and who knows what chance may bring. Only a few yards from the finish, with our heroes gaining fast upon them, the leaders suddenly were seen to have lost way. They had sailed into one of those sudden unexplainable lulls, while the tail-enders were still driving with the wind's full benefit. Une by one the leaders gathered way again as the wind freshened, but for them it was too late, last year's champions drove across the finish line. ahead by a bare half length. Champions again! THoRNn - Transitus A THE .-ISHBURIAN ,gg "A COIN COl,l,l'.C'l'lf JN" XYhen you start Coin Collecting, you have to be sure of what kind of money you want to collect. If you are not sure, then you will end up with a lot of coins that you don't want and you will waste money. To solve this probleiu l suggest you read a book on it, and actually find out what kind of monexi or currency you want to buy. ' XVhen you start this fascinating hobby, you better be prepared to spend quite a lot of money if you want valuable coins. If a friend wants to trade a coin, first find out its value, and then tell him yes or no. XYhen you buy your book on coins, l suggest that you also buy a book that tells you the values, also a magnifying glass so you can 'see the small and intricate designs and features. 1 The biggest coin in the world is a stone on the island of Yap which is in the Pacific Ccean. Another kind of currency is a Stamp in Russia just after the Revolution. Sifictpinic - Trans. A BERMUDA ' Bermuda is an island, or rather a collection of islands in the North Atlantic about 600 miles east of the coast of Carolina. lt is about the same size as Ottawa COnt.J with a population of about 45,000 Bermuda is made up of about 350 small islands, the biggest of which is fireat Bermuda. The Bermudas are made up of coral which has been covered by about two feet of earth and sand. Coming into Bermuda by air, it looked at first like a jagged half moon, and, as we neared the end of the runway it seemed as if we were going to go through the fence at the end of the runway into the sea. XYhen we reached our cottage the first thing we wanted to do was to go for a swim. Our friends had supplied us with two motor driven bikes and a two geared motor bike. Our friends had also shown us i place called Clarence Bay, so we decided to go there as it was the closest place. On the way there the Cyprus or two geared bike had engine trouble and some of us had to go back to the hotel. VVhen we were settled in the cottage and were ready to start sight- seeing, we went to Devil's Hole which is a hole where you can feed the Hsh and turtles by dangling a piece of bread on the end of a string, but there is no hook on the end of the string. so of course no one has ever landed a fish. There are many more interesting features in Bermuda and we saw most of them during our tour of the island. Anyone for Bermuda?

IYhen I was a little puppy I stayed in a nest in a harn with my brothers and sisters. livery morn- ing we used to play together and at night my mother licked me until I was clean. In a few days my eyes opened and I could see where I was going. It seemed I was getting stronger and stronger, and before I knew it I was a Iiig dog. XYhen I was full-grown my master started to train me. Ile trained me to he a watch dog and I watched the house for him when he went out. Une night, when my master was out, someliody tried to get into the house. I was very mad so I ripped his pants. Irle went out of the house very fast Iieeause he was afraid. Since I am getting older my muscles are quite stiff. I can't run as fast as I used to and I ean't see so well either. After doing all this work for my master. he treats me very well.

SIIICNKXIXN as ll THE ASHBURIAN 157 AN OLD FLOXVIQR POT TICI.I.S ITS STORY I remember when I was just a handful of clay. Then one day I was dug out of the ground and carried to a factory. I was moulded into a Hower pot and then put into a scorching hot oven which was pretty unbearable. Finally l was taken out and found I was a beautiful reddish-brown pot. Later I was taken to a store and sold. Some earth was placed in me and a beautiful flower was placed in this earth. The flower grew a little and then was placed in a church for a wedding. Many weddings took place and many children were christened. Finally I was taken to a monastery. Here, I shall lead a happy life as a Hower pot for the rest of my days.

REED - II MY TRIP TO SPAIN TVhen I went to Spain three years ago we had to cross a desert. There were no gas stations at all, so we had to take along some extra gas. XVe also took soft drinks. The trip took us six hours. After another two hours driving we came to the capital city which was Madrid. There we saw a bullfight. In the fight six bulls were killed, but we only saw three killed because we left early. Some of the people fainted because it was so cruel. I would certainly not like to see a bullHght again. On the way back we saw some caves in which people lived. The people were very poor indeed. Some of them were so poor that they could not afford to buy a door. It was a very interesting trip indeed. Gow - II IIS THE ASHBURIAN SAILBOAT RACING IN BERMUDA The most important thing in sailboat racing is the preparing of the boat before the race. You should never insult your boat by having a dirty old coffee can. You should buy a plastic bailer, even if this entails some sacrifice in the pocket-money department. VVould you 'want the bottom of your boat scratched by a coffee can, rusty or otherwise? You need, as an essential, a spinnicker pole in case of a home route running before the wind. Before launching your boat you make sure that you have all the pins in the right place, and the shackles are all tightly done up. After launching your boat you run around and mark out a start, and work your timing so that you will be the Hrst one on the starboard tack, not on the port tack course. Never! On the starboard, your boat has the right of way, thus giving yourself every help to be the first one across the line. The excitement of the voices over the loudspeaker, getting you lined up should not make you forget that Hamilton Sound can be very treacherous, and you must be prepared for all sudden emergencies. From the start, the race is up to the crew and particularly the skipper. So if you are the skipper, you have added responsibility. How do I know about Bermuda? I live there. PATTON - IIIA STAMPS CAN BE FUN The boys who don't belong to the Stamp Club are always poking fun at the stamp collectors, but little do they realize what they are missing, as stamp collecting can be great fun. It is not dull, and it is far from hard if you use your initiative. I-Iave you ever seen a miserable col- lector? This cheerful hobby promotes friendship, and certainly helps with those dull, dreary geography lessons. You "trade" with your friends, and if you work on it, you can find school boys in different countries who are willing to discuss stamps with you by correspondence. You know those old letters you see about? They often have good "traders" on them, so you should watch for this the next time you see a dirty envelope in the waste paper basket. Of course, if you are one of the very lazy ones, you can buy your collection, providing you have lots of pocket money, and you are willing to spend it on stamps. Then again you can get friendly with rich teachers who are always taking off for various parts of the world, and ask them to send back cards andfor letters from the interesting places they visit. And the equipment? All you need is a stamp finder, magnifying glass, album and your first few stamps. Start collecting soon-it's lots of fun! SOUCH - IIIC THE AsHBUR1AN H9 THE FAMOUS BULL My life was a very interesting life indeed. I was born on a small farm fifty miles from Madrid, Spain. My mother kept me warm and played with me a lot. VVe played all sorts of games and one of these was tag. All the time I was becoming stronger and bigger. Then one day a ma.n came and took me from my mother. Ile put me in a truck and started to drive to another farm where they raised bulls for Hghting. They put me into a stable where there were a lot more bulls and tied me up. This I hated. I was fed quite a lot. Then one day a man took me to Madrid where I was to iight the most famous matador in Spain. There were hundreds of people watching the bull fight. There were picadors, bandilleros and matadors. The pieadors picked at me but I would not fight. The bandilleros struck me with sharp swords but I still would not fight. They all wore beautiful cos- tumes. The matadors had big purple cloaks which they waved at me but I still would not fight. They did this for about fifteen minutes, but I would not fight so they took me back to the farm where I was born. There I am living happily to this day. , Gow - II INDIAN HUNTERS The sun gets up. The day begins. The men set out in search of food. The deer are drinking at the springs. The breakfast cooks in pots so crude. The river current rushes fast, Past which the hunters swiftly ride In search of venison to eat And clothes made from the deer's tough hide. VVhiIe back at camp the women work At making clothes for men to wear. The Chief and friends in Council sit, Vifhile old men all just sit and stare. The sun goes down. The day is done. The men return with lots of food. The deer now sleep beside the springs. The supper cooks in those pots so crude. Dxvms - III.-X 160 THE ASHBURIAN KEEPING SNAKES . Keeping snakes can be a very interesting hobby. It is inexpensive and takes very little time. Snakes do not give off any odour and can be kept in a small space. In most cases snakes need only be fed once every three or four weeks. The cage should be about as long as the snake but if several different species of snakes are to be kept in one cage, o1'if you do not know how long it is going to be, a good length is three feet by one and a quarter feet by one and a quarter feet. There should be a branch on which it can climb and rub itself when it is shedding its skin. There should be a pan of water Cnon-corrodingj in which it can submerge its 'whole body at 071065 also there should be some railroad gravel or wood shavings and a place in or under which it can hide itself. If the cage is kept clean there will be no odour. All cages should have a lock. N0 metal screening should be used because the snake will rub his nose against it until it is bleedingg there is some material available that looks like screening but is made of tough string or fiberglas. Feeding Live food should be used in all cases. If the snake will not eat within two weeks you should let it go. Garter snakes, Redbellied snakes and VVater snakes will eat frogs or toads. Ringnecked snakes and smooth green snakes will eat insects or large caterpillars. Rat snakes, fox snakes and milk snakes will eat mice. If you do not live in the Ottawa area the Herpetologist Qone who studies reptilesj at your local museum will be glad to help you. King snakes will eat other snakes and mice. A few rules that should be followed: N ever scare anybody with a snake. If it was captured in the area it should be released in late September unless you can supply it with food and keep it at 650 to 750. Keep the cage closed at all times unless you are watching it or handling a snake. Handle as little as possible.

AN ASTRONAUT AND THE MOON YV hen I grow up I will be An astronaut as you will see Mhirling about the bright blue sky Maybe you'll see me Hashing by. I'l1 make an inspection of Venus and Mars To see if they have Mugillaculty cars Illl make a tour of the moon Then I'll come back very soon. Txixs - II me THE ASHBURIAN "THE WRONG CHOICE" lt was the year of about 2,000 B.C. Camen was walking down the main street in Bagdad. He turned in a side road. After walking for about three minutes he came across an old beggar. XV hen Camen saw him he took pity on him and dropped five golden coins into his cup. Then Camen fell back in astonishment, for the beggar jumped up, threw off his old garments and was dressed in gold and diamonds. He was the wizard of the desert. Then he said, "You are a kind man and you must have a reward, so which do you want, a bag of diamonds or a pound of meat?" Camen laughed and said, HI pick the diamonds." The wizard lifted up his hands and there appeared a large bag of diamonds. Then the wizard said, "You may well regret the choice", and vanished in a cloud of smoke. Some six months later Camen brought a ship to set out to find new islands in the Indian Ocean. After being out for about two months, land was sighted in the west. Then a great storm blew up. It kept blowing the ship off its course. Then it hit a large rock on a shallow part of the ocean and was smashed into pieces on the side of the rock. Camen looked around his ship. He was the only one left alive. He knew that if he didn't get off quickly the ship would sink with him on it. He unloosened a small boat, dropped it in the ocean, and was about to go for food when the boat took a sudden shock, so he jumped into the life boat and started towards the island, without any food or fresh water. About two hours of hard rowing later he reached the island. He was weak, tired and hungry. He looked all around the island. It was nothing but sand, a few rocks and a strange tree, with nothing to eat on it. It was about 18 ft. by 20 ft. After the first night, when he woke up he was weaker than before. Next morning he was so weak he could hardly move. Then late that night he saw a ship coming, but he knew he could not live long enough for the ship to reach him on the island. Then he remembered the wizard saving, "You may well regret the choicef' XYhen they came to the island they saw him there, with a pound of meat beside him. NYhere had it come from? Pork ll - IIIA THE ASHBURIAN W MY HOME CHI-'AIISTRY L.-XB A few years ago I got a chemistry and microscope lah. lt just contained very little things. I got tired of it and put it away. ln about a year I brought it out again and I am still using it. l find it much easier to understand now I am older. and I am adding more things tu the lah. There are about thirty or more chemicals in the lah, ant? test tubes. Also there is a ring stand, a boiling flask, distilling flask. Iirlenmeyer flask and a Florence flask. There are beakers with all sizes, too. i In my microscope lab I make my own slides with plain glass and cover glass. You put the object you want to look at between the glass and cover glass, and then glue the cover glass on glass slide. I am going to try and make gun powder some day. You need 75: Q of saltpetre, 1522 of charcoal and 102 of sulphur. Saltpetre can he called potassium nitrate, and charcoal can be called carbon. Sulphur stays the same. I think chemistry is a lot of fun. Try it some day! Pfxssx' - IIIC FIRST SPRING Feline Domesticus Suddenly, stealthily, Sits on the step with us Crouching among the grass. Snifllng the Spring!
