THE ASHBURI.-IN 9
XVe suppose that the interest of the present generation of Ashburians
who open this magazine focuses chicHy on the record of their own doings,
and those of their fellows during the current year. 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
111 THE ASIIBURIAN
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
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.
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.

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!
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.

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.
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.
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

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
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
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

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:

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.

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
These gatherings, the attendance of which has risen tremendously
this past year, have proved fruitful to both parents and staff.
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.

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
One of the most colourful and, as the chaplain remarks, "history

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
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".

I. 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. Here

the Dean, Dr. Stephenson, gave us a line talk on Medicine as a career,
and then took us on a tour of the Medical Building, including the Osler
Library and the Anatomical Museum. 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
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

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
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.

CGMMGNWEALTH YoUTH MCDVEMENT
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
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
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-
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
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-
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
Izmiors: "The Cloths of Heaven" - Yeats
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:
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

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-
President Fulmer of the American Headmasters' Association.
Dr. VVayne McFarland, Principal of jefferson and XYilson Schools.
Dr. C. A. Brown, Registrar of the Department of Education of
,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
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.

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
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.

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

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

Queen", and the corps was marched off for a formal dismissal.

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

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
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
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
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.

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.
6. Ashbury vs. Northwood, October 29
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
The injuries had taken their toll, but the game was still hard fought.

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
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.
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.

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
-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

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

.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.
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

Neil Lynn for his Hne managing.

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
which our repeated thanks are due to john Mason, lioh Halls, "Homer",

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
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.
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-

The annual cross-country races were held this year on Saturday

of most of the healthy members of the school. There were no records

This spring tennis proved itself to be the most popular of the term's
activities. 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.

A FIRST CRICKET TEAM

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.

UNDER 16 CRICKET
This has been a rather disappointing season. Xlany players eligible
for our team were called upon to play for the First Eleven. 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.

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

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

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

was highlighted by "single" demonstrations by Mr. Anderson CInstruc-

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
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

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.
"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
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.
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
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
MCINNES, RODERICK: "Come live in my bcart and pay
Rod, after spending his earlier days in some remote fishing village, fol-
lowed family tradition and cainc to Ashbury seeking higher ctlut-ation.

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

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.
'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.
"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.

SOME MEMBERS OF TI-IE STAFF
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
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.

THE ASHBURIAN 10,
CLOSING DAY EXERCISES
lt was unfortunate that, after so many years of beautiful weather
for the closing, our winning streak was finally broken, and the presence
of intermittent rain showers forced us to hold this Final ceremony in
Argyle on june 8th. 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.
Delivered by P. Noel-Bentley and M. Spencer, Head Boys
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.
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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,
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.
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
"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
FAITH FOR MAN
As yawl, full rigged, glides swift cross the bay
XVith nature's force her sails abillowing strong,
Mast bends and feels the strength of mighty play.
XVhat force is that which carries her along?
VVhite dove, in silver flight, descends from high
XVith life and spirit of a God above,
And gives to man a faith by which to ply
As wind gives aid in travel to a dove.
Man toils and sweats to earn his daily bread
And troubled days has often to survive,
But powers take hold and homeward he is led
To brighter times, when's good to be alive.
Does man need faith to keep him to this life.
Gr is it just a strength in time of strife?

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
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.

The sky is blue, the day is clear,
XVhen skiers stop to have a beer.
They dig it up from 'neath the snow,
And from the top, the froth they blow.
They take a gulp of the mellow brew,
A taste so cool, a taste so true.
Refreshed, they stretch out 'neath the sun.
They call it sport, they're having fun.
And as the day begins to wane
The skiers find they feel no pain
XVhen skiing into trees and stumps
XYhile gelundersprunging off large bumps.
At night they crawl home tired and beat,
Before the hearth they stretch their feet.
And now they can recall the day
And plan the morrow the same way.
The sun will shine upon the quad,
OYe hopeb, on closing day,
XYhile Mr. Perry and his guests
Some farewell words will say.
The scholars will get prizes,
Of an academic sort,
The athletes, some trophies -
The monuments of sport.
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."

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.

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
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.

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.

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.
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.

And the troubles of life,
And try to remember
Such things as sunrise,
And birds on the wing.

THE AsHBUR1.4N IH
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 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".
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.

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

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'
"Capital punishment IDLISIZ be banned, and capital punishment will
And I knew in my heart that it would be banned if he kept at it.
Let us hope it is.
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.

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

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

actual practice in the past "Cadets" had meant skating or soccer for

to a period termed CULTURE. This turned out to be a pretty elastic

only minor difficulties, such as having to move some of the smaller boys

The monitors this year have helped to keep law and order through-

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
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
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
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:

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

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. CFor report, see senior section. - Editorj

THE JUNIOR SCHOOL LIBRARY
XYith the addition of many new books this year, the Library has
done "good business", especially amongst the boarders during the
winter months, when reading was very popular. 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
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

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.

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
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

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-

appeared, Cinderella had lost her fhisb voice, and the box office had

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
THE ASHBURI.-IN lsr
a way, it might be a good idea if he DID retire. Ile onli' gave two

.IUNIOR CRICKET Xl
The poor spring weather has been a severe handicap to the junior
Cricket XI. 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. Siii-'Piiicizn - C,'.1pr.1i11

154 THE ASHBURIAN
IQCHO LAKE RACING CLUB
Less than a half hour remained before the start of the Echo Lake
Racing Clubs Annual Dinghy Race - "Boys, 16 and under." 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-
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!

"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 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.

Xly life has been a very interesting one. 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. I expect to spend

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.

From a nest
Upon a tree.
He was going '
To sting me,
But I made a swing you see
And then he Hew away from me.
XVhen we tried to get him out
XVe all started to move and shout,
But finally we cornered him
And hit him with a rolling pin.

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.

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.

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-
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 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.

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.

. 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.
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
Ringnecked snakes and smooth green snakes will eat insects or large
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.

"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
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
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

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
I think chemistry is a lot of fun. Try it some day!
