A' THE ASHBURIAN
Since the founding of Ashbury College as a private school for boys
in 1891 there has been a continuing process of change and development.
Each headmaster has taken the school a step forward and in doing so
has left his mark on the school. A change of headmasters is therefore no
small matter in the life of a school, and is invariably accompanied by
mixed emotions. lt is our pleasure this year to welcome Mr. W. A.
Joyce, D.S.O., lC.D., B.Sc., as our new headmaster, and the dominant
mood has been and still remains one of excitement and optimism.
Mr. Joyce has come to us after a distinguished military career and
fourteen years experience as a teacher. He graduated from the Royal
Military College in 1938 and the following year obtained a Bachelor of
Science degree at the University of Manitoba. During the Second
IVorld VVar he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order and retired
with the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel.
He took up teaching in 1950, joining the staff of his old school,
Appleby College, where his principal subjects were Mathematics and
Physics to university level. He was deeply involved in many extra-
curricular activities, serving as the Chief Instructor of the Cadet Corps,
as the supervisor of the athletic programme and as coach of the Rugby,
Hockey and Cricket teams. He was also for several years Senior House
master, and yet found time to acquire a Permanent High School
In 1964 Mr. Joyce went as an exchange master to a famous English
boarding school, Tonbridge School in Kent. Apparently enjoying this
experience, he went on to another, Uppingham School, the following
year, during which time he was appointed by the governors to succeed
As changes are inevitable, so are the misgivings that accompany
them. The changes we have seen this year, however, such as the house
reorganisation, the three-weekly academic achievement tests, the new
marking scheme, the headmaster's Monday assemblies and other such
reforms, though looked upon initially with some scepticism, have un-
doubtedly proved their worth in practice. XYe hope that the following
pages, which describe the achievements of the year, reflect the sense of
purpose and the enthusiasm which have become apparent during its
course. The school is settling into a new rhythm, rich in promise of
achievement, and we offer Mr. .loyce and the school a toast: FLOREAT
THE ASHBURIAN 9
FALL TFRNI - 1966
School opened on September 7th with an address from our new
headmaster, who was happy to begin with a telegram of good wishes
from Mr. A. D. Brain, the former assistant-headmaster, The main
object of the address was to explain to the school the reorganization into
two houses, one for day boys, to be known as Connaught House, with
Mr. A. de Corcuera as housemaster, and another for boarders, called
lVoollcombe House, under the Rev. I. A. XYatson. The school was soon
into its new routine.
The first major event of the year was a visit by the whole school to
the open house of The National Research Council complex on their
fiftieth anniversary. At the Montreal Road buildings many interesting
exhibits were seen, the most appealing to the boys being the wind-tunnel,
the applied chemistry labs, and the radiation apparatus demonstrations.
This took place on September 27th.
On the same day, a small group of Grade 12 and 13 students went
with Mr. Byford to the Sussex Drive branch of the N.R.C. For those
students interested in biology and chemistry, it was a most rewarding
One Sunday in mid-October our headmaster, Mr. joyce, organized
a picnic trip up the Gatineau River for all boys under sixteen years. It
provided a little break for those who went.
A feature of this year's cultural activities has been the regular play-
going of a group who, through Mr. Abel, bought subscriptions to the
season of plays presented by the Ottawa Little Theatre. lt has been a
most rewarding experience for the group, who, on Sunday evenings
once a month, have seen good productions of plays ranging from ,lean
Anouilh's 4'Becket" to Irving Berlin's "Annie Get Your Gun". The
group numbered about 25.
10 THE ASHBURIAN
Rev. I. A. lVatson, the school chaplain, organized some theatre trips
of his own: he managed to secure tickets for the Montreal Symphony,
the Broadway hit "Barefoot in the Park", and two Gilbert and Sullivan
plays, "The Mikado" and "Pirates of Penzance". The largest attended
and most enjoyed play was "Barefoot in the Park". The school thanks
Mr. XYatson and Mr. Abel for organizing the various theatre trips.

The first of a series of concerts was presented on Sunday November
20th in the School Chapel by the junior choir under the direction of
Mr. Godfrey Hewitt, with the able assistance of Angela and john
Hewitt on harpsichord and recorder, and several boys from the Cathedral
choir. Their program was a delightful and satisfying melange of
anthems by the choir and instrumental pieces by the Hewitt family,
culminating in a splendid rendering by Mr. Hewitt on the organ of
Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor. One had never suspected our
little organ capable of such a magnificent torrent of sound!
9? 9? Il?
The first Parents' Reception of the year took place on Friday,
October 28th. An unusually large gathering of parents were first
addressed by the headmaster in Argyle Hall, and afterwards interviewed
their sons' subject masters privately. The evening ended pleasantly
with refreshments in the dining hall.
3? 241 3?
Two welcome breaks in the termls activities were provided by the
Thanksgiving VVeekend, from the 7th to the 10th of October, and the
Half-Term Break, from the 11th to the 14th of November.
S6 :Xi Ili
In November Mrs. Dworschak, from the Ottawa Community
Service Centre, talked to the school on the subject of forming a group
that would assist in one of the activities of this organization. Helping
retarded children, doing jobs in the poorer sections of Ottawa, and lend-
ing a hand at the After-Four centre for young children were some of
her topics. The Service Club was subsequently set up, and operated for
the remainder of the year. See the Clubs section for details.

XYINTER TERM - 1967
On Tuesday, the 10th of january, Dr. Payzant of the University of
Toronto came to talk to those boys interested in this university. llis
talk and question and answer period afterwards were most enlightening
to all concerned.
Mr. Smiley from the Bell Telephone Company gave the school a
most interesting talk on Friday, the 13th of january, on the subject of
laser beams and high-frequency sound waves as mediums for communi-
cation. Brigadier Mozeley gave the thank-you speech and led the
Near the end of the month, on Sunday the 29th, the Glebe Lyres
Club of Ottawa came and sang a program of clamical and modern pieces,
with a piano solo during the intermission. The concert was much
enjoyed by the boys, who called for, and received, an encore.
On Shrove Tuesday, which fell this year on the 7th of February,
the Chaplain held his version of the traditional pancake toss, in which a
large pancake is thrown to a mob of boys. The person with the largest
piece after Hfteen seconds is declared winner. The prizes, which were
of a pecuniary nature, were awarded to Roy Bennetto and Glen Rossie,
scramblers in chief.
Mr. Eric Morse, Director, Association of Canadian Clubs, gave the
second of the educational lectures on Thursday the 9th of February.
He told us of his adventures into and through the Canadian Arctic by
canoe. VVe know now that there is more than rock and eskimos down
The Half-Term Weekend for the second term began on the 10th of
February, and ended on the 1-lth.
On Friday, the 2-lth of February, parents started arriving at 8:30
p.m. for the second Parents' Reception of the year. After being ad-
dressed by the headmaster, the parents were shown the classrooms and
the laboratories, and went through their immemorial routine with subject
12 THE ASHBURIAN
On the night of Vllednesday, the first of March, about thirty boys
from the college went to see a popular singing group called "The
Animals" at the Coliseum in Lansdowne Park. The night was memora-
ble, but not for its singing. Unfortunately, the group did not appear
and there was a riot involving 2,500 teenagers. All but one of the
Ashbury boys made it back to school Without mishap. Let the fate of
the one be shrouded forever in darkness!

The school went en masse to the funeral of the Governor-General,
a great man whom many of the boys felt they knew quite well, for in
1965 he inspected the Ashbury Cadet Corps. General Vanier was given
a state funeral on March Sth, with the Ashbury Guard helping to line
the route. It was our way of showing our respect for a person who was
an inspiration to so many of us.

The third education lecture of the year was given, on the third of
March, by Mr. David Chance of the International joint Commission.
Mr. Chance lectured and showed pictures on the topic of "Pollution and
Its Control". He stressed that ours was the generation to do something

Two large groups of over thirty boys each, accompanied by masters,
visited the Capitol Theatre in March to see productions by the Canadian
Stratford company of "Twelfth Night" and C1ogol's "The Inspector-
G-:neral". They were very much enjoyed, the Russian play in particular
being an outstanding performance.

During the XVinter term, four boys from the school took part in a
television quiz program entitled "Reach for the Top". Michael Evans,
Michael Vklennberg, Peter MacPhail, and Chris Stone composed the
team. After winning once, over St. .Ioseph's High School, they suc-
cumbed to our old enemy Eastview. For their first win they were
awarded a set of reference books which rapidly disappeared into the new

On XYednesday, the Sth of April, the first day back from tie lfaster
Holiday, the Grade thirteen students went on a trip with Xlr. Egan and
Mr. Byford to the experimental nuclear power plant at the Chalk River
site. They visited the reactor and the tandem accelerator. The com-
puters that help run the plant were explained, and the trip was enjoyed

The following Sunday, the 9th of April, there was a musical concert
put on in Argyle Hall by the Fisher Park High School Cantabile Singers.
The program consisted of modern songs and hymns. It was wonderful
entertainment for a Sunday evening.

On Sunday, the 23rd of April, Nlr. Tony Tyndall showed pictures
of several Pioneer Camps in Canada. He also gave a short talk on their
purpose and values in the preceding evening service in the chapel. Uf
special interest was the proposed sailing trip on the Atlantic this summer,
in which some of the boys may be participating.

On Friday, the 28th of April, the Mothers' Guild Annual Tea and
Bake Sale was held in Argyle. Cakes, books, records and many other
items were on sale from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Cn the nights of April 28th and 29th, the two plays "A Battle of

The Graduation Dance was held on the 12th of May at the Country
Club in Hull. This was the evening of the annual ceremonial inspection.
and the distinguished guests included the inspecting officer, Xlajor
General Roger Rowley.

The school Cadet Corps was also on parade in May at the official
opening of a new park near the school in Rockcliffe Village. The park
has been the village's centennial project and was opened by His Excel-
lency the Governor-General. The inaugural ceremony was followed
first by a barbecue and then by dancing in the street.
14 THE ASHBURIAN
This last activity was missed Cro their great chagrinl by all the
members of Grade 12, who accompanied their English masters, Mr. Abel
and the Rev. I. VVatson, to a performance by the Bristol Old Vic of
Shakespearcfs .lleastzre for ilf6'C7.S'1l7'6 on 17 May. The spirited perform-
ance it was given provided excellent review just before the final
examinations. The Upper Sixth similarly enjoyed a production of
Hamlet during that week, while a third party made the same trip down
to the Capitol Theatre to see Romeo and Iuliet. A feast of Shakespeare
which we shall wait long to enjoy again!

The Upper Sixth were able to enjoy a performance of another of
their set plays when the Cathedral Players presented Shaw's St. 101111 in
the Anglican Cathedral. Live theatre has been very much a part of
school life this year.

On Friday morning the 26th of May Mr. Fudakowski took Forms
6C and 6D on a Geography field trip. Some items seen were the edge
of the shield in the Gatineau Hills, glacial formations in Quebec, and
sand and gravel pits in Ontario. The trip was educational and enjoyed
by everyone concerned.

The same afternoon, Mr. Joyce took the whole school on a trip to
Pleasure Valley in the Gatineau Hills where he proposes to have a camp
for the school. lt is planned that boys will be able to swim, hike and
ride there and generally enjoy the outdoors. The trip was a foreshadow-
ing of greater things to come.

THE ASHBURIAN 15'
CLUBS AN ACTI ITIES
More was done this year than for many past to provide the boys
with extra-curricular activities other than sports. The chief stumbling-
block to hobbies and clubs in a school where great importance is attached
to the participation of every boy in a daily programme of sports. was of
course the difficulty of finding a suitable time for club meetings. This
year's solution, that of using the Friday night prep period, was not
entirely a satisfactory one, and doubtless some changes will have to be
made in the coming year.
In general, however, the clubs were well supported and, while one
or two were somewhat fitful. many were run with considerable success.
The strong guiding hands of masters will be necessary for some time
before the boys are capable of running the clubs independently, and the
staff have not stinted with time or encouragement. The following

Many a keen discussion of strategy followed the games played
regularly on Friday evenings in the rooms of Nlr. Fudakowski or Mr.
XYebb, avid players of both games.
Drawmtic Society. ,llr. Abel and ,llr. lV.1ts011
Since the school lacks the proper facilities for a stage production. the
idea was mooted of a combined production with the Elmwood girls to
be presented on the stage there. Agreement was soon reached at a
meeting at Elmwood attended by Mrs. Blyth, the headmistress. Nlrs.
Harwood-jones and Mrs. Van Dine of the Elmwood staff and by Xlr.
XVatson and Mr. Abel from Ashbury. A report of the fruits of this
meeting may be read elsewhere in this magazine. Suffice it to remark
here that a great deal of work was done by very many people during the
winter term and part of the spring term in order to ensure the success of
our double bill, "A Battle of Hits" by Norman Williams and "Trial by
jury" by Gilbert and Sullivan.
Driving C ourse. ,ll r. Saba-mlzele
During the Easter term a "first" was achieved at Ashbury College.
A driver's training course was organized as an extra-curricular activity.
This course was the first ever to be offered at an independent school in
Ontario and was only about the second or third offered in any school
16 THE ASHBURIAN
in the Ottawa area. The course consisted of twenty-Hve hours of class
instruction on safe driving techniques, eight hours of behind-the-wheel
driving practice and eighteen hours of observation. Students who
successfully completed the course received, in addition to an Ontario
motor vehicle operator's licence, a safe driver certificate from the
Department of Transport.
Pictured above with Mr. Joyce and Mr. Schovanek, staff co-ordi-
nator for the course, are Mr. Comfort, who gave the lectures on safe
driving, Mr. VVaterman, accident prevention organizer for the Ontario
Department of Transport, and some of the nineteen boys enrolled in
Gastrovzovnic Society. .lI1'. lVats011
Mr. Sherwood was the host of the first club function, at which a
Bangkok Curry was served. No doubt this and all subsequent meetings
were relished by the small but voracious club membership, but it must
be observed that they may have had something to do with the compara-
tive failure of the Exec to put Mr. TVatson in shape!
.lflusic Club. .lIr. Fortier
Nluch was done to further the musical interests and understanding
of the dozen boys who meet each week at Nlr. Fortier's apartment to
listen to and discuss all kinds of orchestral music.
Riding Club. .1111 IVillia111siu1d .lIr. Fortier
Nlany outings were enjoyed bv a surprising number of keen eques-
trians in the fall and the spring. The Riding Club's success was largely
due to Dr. Hudson who provided transport to and from his "Triple L"

ranch. His enthusiastic support and helpful hints made for an enjoyable
and useful year of riding for club members. Dr. l ludson also expressed
his deep satisfaction with the boys from Ashbury, their gentlemanlv
conduct and their riding ability. Outstanding were Chip llair. club
president, john Turton, secretary, and also Wally Smith and Ron Reid,
two of our finest horsemen.

This club met immediately after school on Fridays. Competition
was on an individual basis, the main purpose being practice for improve-
ment. All shooting was done according to Dominion Nlarksman
Association rules, the boys supplying their own riHes. The club owed
much to the enthusiasm of Bill Davies, who was responsible for the
ordering of the ammunition and who proved to be a keen organizer.
Scieuce Club. .llr. Byford
The membership of the club was drawn from grades nine and ten
and a few simple experiments were performed under Mr. Bvford's keen
Service Club. .ll1'. Slierftcootl
At the instigation of Mrs. H. Dworschak of the Ottawa XVelfare
Council, the Ashbury Service Club was formed. Every available
afternoon the boys went down to the After Four Club to entertain
"latch-key" children. The term "latch-key" is applied to boys and girls
whose parents are seldom at home when they return from school. The
program of the club is varied. Games are played at the club and
excursions are made for fun or for educational purposes. These include
skating or swimming and trips to the museum or library. The two hours
spent at the club proved enjoyable to the volunteers and children alike.
The experience was benencial to Ashbury boys in that it gave them
an understanding of their duty as more fortunate members of society and
it developed a sense of leadership within them.
Sumo, Iudo, .Jud Kmfate Club. llr. Spencer
Vlith about a dozen regular members, the club met in the gymnasium
and enjoyed the services of two instructors, M r. Spencer being the expert
in Sumo and Y. Hoom Kim in judo and Karate. We were indeed
fortunate in having a Korean practitioner in the school, and demonstra-
tions bv the two experts were followed by competitive bouts. Instruc-
tion was supplemented by films on these sports kindly loaned by the

The services in chapel have not been changed much this year, except
that in the Spring Term Evensong or Compline was the norm instead
of Matins or Sung Eucharist. A Senior Choir was formed to sing with
the junior Choir on Sundays and the highlights of their work were two
Carol Services, one at Christmas and one soon after Easter. The servers
continued to assist in many ways, and to their ranks were added Ted
janke, Roy Bennetto, lan lYahn and Alan Myers. They all had more
to do this year since the Holy Communion was celebrated every Sunday,
either at 8.30 a.m., or 11.00 a.m. The earlier time was a voluntary
service and although numbers were never very large, the practice of
Communion before breakfast, which necessitates the giving up of the
Sunday lie-in, is one to be encouraged more.
The Bishop of Ottawa came over during the Lent term to celebrate
Communion for the boarders and then had breakfast in the Dining Hall.
He administered Confirmation on May Sth and those who received the
rite of laying on of hands were: Douglas Aboud, Bruce Anderson,
Edward Cahn, Keith Dawson, Nicholas Ebsworth, jonathan Ellis, james
Fenton, Hilary Grinstead, Bernard Haugan, Bradley La Salle, Stephen
Lloyd, Anthony Luciani, Duncan McLeod, Richard Perley, Michael
Perley-Robertson, David Saunders and Stephen TVinterton. Charles
Barnes and lan Hahn were given their servers' medals at the same

On April 28th and 29th, in the Elmwood School auditorium, the
combined .Ashbury and Elmwood Dramatic Societies presented two
evenings of enjoyable light comedy in their double bill consisting of
Norman Williams' A Battle of lVits followed by Gilbert and Sullivan's
seldom seen operetta, Trial by Imfy.
A Battle of Ufits, a satire on the infallible rule of custom in Imperial
China, was well chosen for presentation by the combined Dramatic
Societies. lt is a short play requiring but few actors, mostly stereotyped
character parts, and little scenery, since the traditional Chinese bare
stage convention was employed to enhance the effect of the acting.
Mrs. Van Dine's costumes deserve special praise for their originality and
effectiveness. Robert Hall Brooks, well cast as the pedantic elder offi-
cial, Chung Tai, performed commendably. Philip Loftus' interpreta-
tion of the witty and somewhat cynical young official, Sun Chu, though
marred at times by too rapid delivery, was clearly one of the best per-
formances in the play. He must however share this distinction with
janet Uren who did very well indeed in her role as Silver Lotus. Also
worthy of special mention is Charles Barnes who almost stole the show
on two or three occasions by merely moving furniture about the stage.
The vein of satiric light comedy was continued in Gilbert and
Sullivan's Trial by fury. The production was an extravaganza as
school musicals go - the cast was large and well practised in their parts,
the music was plentiful and not at all easy to sing, the Nineteenth Century
costumes displayed a great deal of imaginative originality while adding
to the overall sumptuousness of the setting. The three leading parts
were very capably played by Beverley Erlandson as Angelina, Christo-
pher Stone as the judge, and Robert Millar as Edwin, the defendant.
Miss Erlandson's voice was clear, strong and confident, and she projected
her part with conviction and credibility. Christopher Stone's per-
formance left very little, if anything at all, to be desired. Robert Millar,
though more exuberant and spontaneous on the first night, sang well
and definitely heightened the -comedy of the whole performance with
his extemporaneous gestures and expressions.
XYe are all indebted to the four directors for a thoroughly enjoyable
evenings entertainment. .l.G.S.

Ashbury College like any other Canadian private school experiences
difficulty financing annual operating expenses from fee income only.
Even with increased fees commencing September 1967 this situation
will not improve greatly.
Therefore, after study of the policy of several other schools and
universities, and with a view to creating a sum of money in addition to
the fee income to meet annual operating expenses, the Board of Governors
is studying the possibility of establishing an annual giving programme
which will be of interest to all friends of the School.
The Board will also assist the Old Boys' Association in conducting
the proposed Hermann Memorial Scholarship plan as a special project of
the Association for the immediate future. Appeal will be made to all
Old Boys who were associated with the late Mr. Hermann as well as his
friends in other fields of activity, such as Insurance, RCMP, etc.
There are Old Boys, Parents and Friends of Ashbury who from
time to time will wish to make donations for purposes- such as new
buildings, scholarships or capital fund investment. The Development
Fund Office will prepare suitable printed material to bring this fund
to the attention of possible donors.
Bequests to the School can best be made through the Development
Fund and handled by the proposed Investment Committee until such
time as the Board of Governors may decide to employ capital for the
improvement of the School. The creation of a capital reserve is most
Codicil Forms are now available in the Development Fund Office.
Several persons in appropriate cities have been asked to encourage parti-
cipation as this can best be done on a person to person basis.
Scholarships and Bursaries are greatly needed and every effort must
be made to increase this aspect of Ashbury finances. A Committee will
be appointed to work with the Development Fund OHice to promote this.
Steps are being taken now to establish an Ashbury Foundation in the
Ll.S.A., as a method of assisting the tax position of donors in that country.
Ashbury College will in Canada's second century of Confederation
grow with our country. Canada will continue to need young men with
an educated capacity to lead, to accept responsibility, to work hard, and
to dare courageously. 1967 is for Canada only the end of the beginning.
Ashbury, founded in 1891, is also at the beginning of a new era.

Tl-IE SOUTI-IAM LIBRARY
The new Southam Library was ofiicially opened by Mr. R. VV.
Southam as part of the school's Closing Ceremonies on Saturday 10 june.
It represents a tangible mark of the long association of the Southam
family with Ashbury College, and took its present form as a result of a
change in plans.
Since 196+ the Development Fund has received many generous
donations, but unfortunately, because of the steep rise in building costs,
the original plan for a new gymnasium and a rebuilding of the old one
into a new library had to be shelved. It was decided instead to build
additional classrooms onto the Argyle wing and include a new library
here as a memorial to XV. M. and H. S. Southam. Ground was finally
broken on 26 September 1966.
The library had actually been in use for some six weeks prior to the
oflicial opening, and has already proved a tremendous success and a fine
addition to the college. It is panelled in walnut, is fully carpeted and
furnished tastefully with upholstered chairs, sofas and armchairs. lt
includes an elaborate high-fidelity, stereophonic sound system with
record player and tape-recorder, both for educational and recreational
use. Moreover, the new classrooms have greatly eased pressure for
space in both the Senior and the junior schools, one result being that
tiny Room A at the end of Rhodes Hall has Hnally been put out to
pasture as a Band Room.
The task ahead is of course to fill the shelves with new books.
Many are already there, jostling with those retained from the old library,
in mute testimony of the long hours already spent on the task by the
Library Committee and the librarian. Ashbury is chieliy indebted to
the Mothers' Guild for its donation of the princely sum of 553,000 for
reference books. With this gift, and others from parents, old boys and
friends of the school, it has been possible to lay the foundations for a fine
basic reference library. Further donations are always welcome, and
should be sent to the librarian, Xlrs. Nl. Loftus, at the school.

The gods looked down with benevolence, and after a week or more
of cold winds, lowering skies and buckets of rain, the great day, Friday
12 Nlay, dawned miraculously clear. Perfect weather for a parade
indeed - bright sun, but cool.
The inspecting oflicer this year was Major General Roger Rowley,
D.S.U., ED., C.D., for whom this was a special occasion personally as
well as officially, since he spent ten years at Ashbury himself as a boy.
The inspection and march past followed the usual pattern, to a medley
of French marching songs played by the Cadet Corps Band of St.
Lawrence High School, Cornwall. Our own band acquitted itself
nobly, and the Guard of Honour's Drill was impeccable.
Suddenly the loud speaker crackled with the sounds of hoarse
voices giving positions and orders, and the crowd found itself witnessing
a Herce battle for control of a ridge Cdominated by the headmaster's
housel. An advancing platoon, faces blackened, fell to the ground at
the sound of cracker-Hre from the defenders. Heedless of danger, they
returned the Hre and continued to advance, finally storming the slopes
and winning control - with what casualties we were not informed! The
senior gymnastic team suitably provided an excellent climax to the
demonstrations with a sustained display of controlled and graceful
gymnastic feats on the box and the parallel bars.
Major General Rowley was most appreciative of the afternoon's
activities, and complimented the Chief Instructor, his staff and two
Cadet Officers on a Hne show. In his closing address he brought smiles
when he reminisced about his own days with the corps, and particularly
with the band, in which he declared he had once been a very bad bugler.
Its playing had immediately improved after his removal from it, and he
thought today it was somewhat better than in his day, but, he added with
a chuckle, not much! He then presented the following awards:
Commanding UHicer: Cadet Major H. Smellie
Best Platoon: Cadet Lieutenant I. D. Xlaclienzie
Best Utlicer: Cadet Lieutenant A. D. XlacDougall

There have been several changes in the Guild's operations this past
year. Only four meetings were called instead of the customary eight,
and there was a marked improvement in attendance and interest. The
Old Boys' Luncheon, organized by the guild in the past, was handled by
the School's Kitchen staff, saving us a number of headaches - the small
profit we made did not justify the effort.
The Clothing Sale was ably convened by Mrs. L. Copeland early
in September. This Sale is a three-way beneht, for the original owner
gets a percentage of the sale price, the buyer gets real bargains, and the
guild nets a good profit- 3,168.72 in 1966. VVe plan to hold this sale
on the first day of school in September, hoping more buyers and sellers
will he on hand, and are considering changing the percentage of sale
prices to a 50-50 split between the owner and the guild.
The Spring Tea was held on April 28th in Argyle, instead of the
Dining llall. Though this innovation caused minor hitches, the extra
space proved invaluable, and the Tea Convener, Mrs. Perley, proudly
reports a profit of 351,015.00
THE ASHBURIAN 51
lYe are grateful to the generous supporters of this project - to the
Firms who gave such desirable prizes for the raflle organized by Xlrs.
Fergus Maclaren, to the donors of delicious food for Nlrs. lJeacon's Hake
Table, and to those who gave a bewildering array of white elephants
and books to the tables arranged by Xlrs. Polk and Xlrs. Xlarland.
The Mothers' Guild gave an excellent, new. and sorely-needed
piano to the School, provided a 3250.00 Bursary, and bought prizes for
junior School French, Middle School linglish and Grade I2 lfnglish.
The Guild had accumulated a considerable "Building Fund" by
investing part of the project profits in bonds each year for some time.
In February it was decided, unanimously, to U.lI'I1 all these savings over to
Ashbury to provide books Qmarked with a special Nlothers' Guild book
platej for the new library. A cheque for 52,707.46 was sent to Xlr.
Joyce to be spent by the Library Committee, which comprises both
staff members and students.
This gift elicited IHOSY heartwarming letters of thanks from the
Headmaster and from the Chairman of the Board of Governors, Nlr.
Donald Maclaren, and everyone concerned is pleased that the work of
both present and former members of the Ashbury Mothers, Guild has
made possible such a fine contribution to Ashbury's handsome and
comfortable new library.
The Guild Executive looks forward to seeing old members next
year, and is eager to welcome new Mothers, we shall need active replace-
ments for the capable members who 'cgraduaten in june if we are to
continue to provide Ashbury with much-needed "extras",
In closing I should like to thank the Headmaster, Nlr. Joyce. the
Staff, the household staff and our members for their unfailing encourage-
ment and support.

English at Ashbury in 1965. Outside the classroom he has been best
known as a keen and very successful coach of the Hrst hockey and first
football teams. He has also been active with the Cadet Corps as a
civilian instructor, and has put in many hours helping to establish our

THIL SPORTS DINNIQR
Our annual sports dinner, held this year on April 12 in the school
dining hall, was as usual a very good-humoured affair. The I Ieadmaster
introduced to us our head tabQe guests, among whom were numbered
some governors and of course our guest speaker, Nlr. G. H. G. Dvson.
the National Director of the Royal Canadian Legion Sports Training
Programme. Mr. Dyson is a coach of international reputation, for
many years the British national and Olympic track and field coach before
coming to Canada to take up his present position. I Iis chief function in
Canada has been, as he himself puts it, 'to teach teachers and coach
coaches', and the national clinic organised annually in Guelph is con-
sidered of primary importance in developing Canadian potential. His
son, Timothy, graduates from Ashbury this year, and next year the
family moves back to England, where Xlr. Dyson is to take a new posi-
tion as Director of Physical Ilducation at lYinchester College.
The toast to the coaches, proposed by O. K. Lawson, Captain of
the School, and the reply, by Nlr. QI. L. Goldsmith, I lead Football Coach,
were followed by presentations of gifts to individual coaches. Alt.
Anderson was also obliged to wear a placard inscribed with the words
I AM A LIAR, a gesture made by a nonetheless very grateful team for
his incorrect prognostication that it was 'in no way' possible that the
soccer team should win the Ottawa High Schools' Championship.
Such antics provided a very happy and receptive audience for Xlr.
Dysonls vigorous address, which he began by comparing the British
attitude towards coaches with the North American. lYider powers are
given to the Canadian coach, who is therefore able to achieve greater
honours and more public notice than his British counterpart. This he
had noticed again, he said, at this dinner. In Britain, on the other hand.
more scope is generally left to the players. Nlr. Dyson went on to urge
the boys to practise sports, whether individual or team, because they are
fun and not merely because they are worshipping the god of physical
exercise. He presented many examples, drawn from his wide experience.
and his speech was very well received.

FIRST FC JOTBALL TIQANI
This year's young and spirited team helped erase memories of last
year's dismal season by compiling a line record of five victories in nine
games and reaching the semi-finals of the Intermediate Division of the
Ottawa High School Football League.
Ashbury performed well in League play despite a somewhat
lacklustre showing in our brief appearance in the annual Pigskin Parade
which kicks off each season. We scored victories over Ottawa L.
U2-67, Commerce C18-69 and lfastview C29-07.
Our only loss during the League's regular season was a 13-ll defeat
by St. Pious. However, the team never was able to get rolling in the
semi-final game and we were eliminated 16-0 by the same Ottawa Lf team
we had defeated a few weeks earlier.
The team split its four exhibition games, beating Commerce 4 I2-ill
and the Old Boys C20-69 while losing to l3ishop's C26-05 and Stanstead
XlacPhail. KlcAninch and leloy were the team's major scoring
threats. Between them, they accounted for 1.526 yards rushing. includ-
ing Xlc.Xninch's 110-yard punt return for the winning touchdown over
36' THE ASHBURIAN
Ottawa U. and an 86-yard olT-tackle romp by MacPhail. MacPhail led
the rushing with 795 yards gained, followed by McAninch H775 and
lrloy Q25-H. AlacPhail rambled for 267 of those measures in the Com-
merce game while McAninch boosted his total with a big 220-vard day
against lfastview. i i
Klacphail and NlcAninch shared the Nlost Valuable Player Award,
lifvans I won the Best Lineman Trophy, and Hogarth was' named the
Nlost lmproved Player to cap a most enjoyable and successful season.
As expected, this season proved better than the last. Ashbury ended
the year with a -l-1 record, and a second place berth led to a sudden-
death semi-final, but the team was defeated.
For next year we have some good rookies coming up from the
second team and a nucleus of this year's first. Most important of all,
however, is the development of pride, both in the school and in individual
players. lt has been a tremendous pleasure to me to coach the young
men of Ashbury, and I hope they will continue to better themselves and
set a fine example to all. -l.L.G.
The continuance of strong First Football teams at Ashbury depends
on a steady stream of young, experienced players to offset the losses of
graduation. With this thought in mind, it was decided to have a Second
Team - a Mfarm team" as it were.
Most of the boys who turned out for the squad had very little back-
ground in the game, but their enthusiasm largely overcame that obstacle.
After a rather short string of practices the "Seconds" were faced with
their first test. ln a very close contest Ashbury was on the short end
of the score.
The remainder of the season was much the same story. Games
against Selwyn House, Bishop's, and Stanstead yielded valuable experi-
ence but no victories. lt was very heartening to see that the boys did not
fall apart or give up during this winless season.
To get game experience for the future and to prepare boys for
grown-up life were the double aims in creating the Second Team. ln all
respects success has been achieved. There are several boys ready to step
up to the First Team next year. To be a good winner one also has to be
a good loser. The "Seconds" have been good losers - their turn as
winners will inevitably come.
THE ASHISURIAN S9
FIRST XI SOCCER - 1966
This year, from a not too promising squad, Xlr. Anderson developed
a team which was able, in the final analvsis, to bring the school its first
Championship in this sport. i
The early part of the season combined a mixture of vvins and losses
which gave the members of the team the idea that perhaps there was a
chance to make the playofTs.
In actual League competition, the team xvon live games while losing
only one and the exhibition schedule resulted in four wins and three
losses- this does not include the League playoffs, where. as the results
show, not one game was lost.
Below will be found a game-by-game account of the most interest-
ing matches of the season - txvo exhibition games and the lligh School

1. vs. Stanstead Cat homeb - October 15th
In this morning game, Ashbury met a line all-round team. composed
of many individual stars, including one lad from Bermuda, who proved
to be the backbone of their attack.
40 THE ASHBURIAN
On Ashbury's part, it was a good, solid, team effort all the way, and
MacDougall's two goals in the second half gave the school a close,
hard-fought, 2-l victory.
2. vs. Bishop's College School Cat homej - October 29th
This game continued the keen rivalry that has been going on
between these two schools for many, many years. lt was not a parti-
cularly good soccer day, as it was unusually cold, and stiff, gusting winds
made things difficult for both squads. It was a case of two hard-fighting
teams playing a more-or-less defensive type of game. Again, another
steady team effort, aided by a pair of nicely-headed goals by Smellie,
produced a tight 2-1 victory for Ashbury.
High School League Playoffs: Lisgar, Rid gC'7ll07lf, Ilfoodroffe, and
l. vs. Lisgar Cat homej - November 3rd
Although a 4-0 victory over Ottawa U. had put the team in fourth
place, tied with Lisgar, a game had to be played between the two schools
to decide who would gain sole possession of this last, valuable playoff
lt was a completely defensive game until Smellie finally found the
range, and scored the lone goal of the contest to give the school a 1-0
victory, and a somewhat unexpected berth in the playoffs.
2. vs. Ridgemont Cawayj - November 7th
The team was now at the quarter-final stage, and the pressure began
to mount. Before this very important game, it was obvious that all the
players were reminded of the earlier loss to this hard-Hghting team and
they certainly did not want a repeat performance.
MacDougall was put out of action, tearing ligaments in his foot,
with the score 1-0 in the school's favour on a goal by Polk. The
untimely loss of HMeatball" seemed to make the team fight all the harder,
and Smellie added another goal to make the final count 2-0. lt was now
into the semi-finals!
6. vs. lVoodroiTe Cat homej - November 8th
lVith the entire school cheering along the sidelines, Ashbury took
to their extremely muddy field against the second-place team in the
Vl'estern Division, whom they had neither played before, nor heard an
awful lot about.
lt turned out to be an extremely rough type of soccer, a hard-fought
game all the way. Mulaner's goal earlv in the second half put the school
ahead I-0, and that was how the game ended. Now came the biggest
game of the year. The question was, could Ashbury beat Tech. a team
that had won the Championship for the last four years in a row?
THE ASHBURIAN -ll
4. vs. Ottawa Technical School 1' at Carleton Lniversitvl as
November 10th i
It was still hard to believe that Ashbury had made the finals, even
as the team warmed up on the soccer pitch at Carleton. After many
ups and downs throughout the season, they suddenly had a chance to
take the Championship away from a team which had not been beaten at
all in the last two years.
From the opening kick-off, it was apparent that Ashbury was play-
ing a much better team, and after about twenty-live minutes, during
which the Tech team had completely dominated the school, an Ashbury
player inadvertantly headed the ball into his own net, thereby giving
Tech a 1-0 lead. Ashbury seemed to come to life, incredibly, at this
point, and just before the first half ended, Nlulaner tied the score with a
The trend of soccer turned to numerous end-to-end rushes on the
part of both squads, and then, with about ten minutes left in regulation
time, Church picked up a loose rebound and blasted the winning marker
into the net behind the luckless Tech goaltender.
A continued physical effort on Ashbury's part, with special mention
here going to Russell Armitage, who played faultlessly in the Ashbury
goal, enabled the team to hold off a somewhat disgruntled Tech squad
until the Hnal whistle gave proof to the fact that Ashbury had indeed
become champions of the High School Soccer League for the first time
in the school's history.
It was a good season for lst XI Soccer- perhaps one of the best
that will be seen for a long time, but whatever the case, the support of the
school and the long hours of work put in by the coaches were two factors
that contributed a great deal to this success, and the team is indebted to
Xlr. Anderson, Xlr. Ifgan and the whole school in these respects. j.H.S.
The record of the team, XYZ - L3 - TZ, is not impressive and belies
the enthusiasm shown by the squad throughout the season. However
the experience gained by these younger boys should prove valuable for
next year especially if the junior High School League is formed.
During the season several boys developed their skills rapidly and made
outstanding contributions to the team. Paterson. the captain. and
Carlton were foremost among these and were awarded their Colours.
As a breeding ground for the lst Xl the team proved useful during
this season and many boys should advance next year to the Senior team.
There is a wealth of Soccer potential amongst the younger boys at
Ashbury: let us hope that next year sees much of this potential exploited.

The school championships were held in early November with close
to two hundred boys taking part. Winners were declared in Hve
categories for distances ranging from one mile for the "Under Ill'
juniors to over four miles for the seniors. New records were set in the

It is certainly true that the lst hockey team did not enjoy a successful
season in terms of its record of wins but the games were spirited and well
played to the best of the abilities of all those concerned.
In a schedule of 16 games only two victories were recorded. The
first was a 3-0 blanking of Ifastview. one of the very few shutout per-
formances this season in the Ottawa High School llockey League.
The second win was a 7--l tlminping of the Old Boys in an exciting.
wide-open contest that closed out the season.
It should be mentioned that five games were only lost by one goal.
while injuries and absences usually kept the team's roster at I0 or less
Cvery tired! players. Coupled with t-his was a tight schedule jammed
mainly into january which permitted few practices and included several
weeks in which three and even four games were played.
The team fared badly in its exhibition games with other private
schoos, losing to Stanstead 13-ll, Lower Canada College to-ill and
Bishop's C+-07, after upsetting both Stanstead and Bishop's last year.
Une indication of the team's line spirit was its ability to bounce back
after these exhibition losses to chalk up a well-earned victory in the Hnal
clash against a first-rate team of Old Boys that included a starting
forward line of Bob and Bruce Berry and joe Irvin.
In summary. a poor record- but a very fine team of boys.

We were glad to be able to use all our players in a moderately
successful season - two wins, two losses, and a draw - since our prime
objectives were development and experience for next year's senior team.
The team was slow starting but soon began to find its way and play as a
unit. A most enjoyable and industrious season. j.I..Ci.

tively inexperienced skiers. Nlr. Peter Guy, the fine coach from last
season, was not available this year and Mr. de Corcuera kindly offered
to help out although not greatly experienced on the slopes. Competi-
tion results were only fair, and we hope for better things next time
The interest shown for Curling last year was maintained this season
and a small but enthusiastic group practised on two afternoons each week.
IVith very few experienced curlers to call on, the season was mostly
spent in learning the techniques. Only one team match was held, when
we played host to Lakefield School. In fact this sport is quite strong
at Lakefield, which was amply demonstrated and we absorbed a sound
beating. This winter activity promises to grow in popularity and vic-
tories will come with experience.
46 THE ASHBUIUAN
At one time it appeared that cricket would be allowed to die a
natural death at Ashbury because of climatic and organizational difficul-
ties. However it was decided to apply a little gentle resuscitation and
see how many students would like to play. Twenty four volunteered,
including a group of South Americans, and when practice games were
played it was interesting to hear ejaculations in Spanish whenever a
wicket fell or a good shot was made. Perhaps it will not be long before
an XI.C.C. side visits Mexico City or Caracas!
The team only played two matches, one against Sedbergh on a very
wet pitch where they suffered an ignominious defeat, and one against the
Old Boys which ended in a very fair draw, both sides making over one
In conclusion it ought to be said that everyone found the cricket
most enjoyable, and since most of the team is coming back next year,
doubtless the standard will improve and old opponents will be engaged
once more. Loftus was a capable if inexperienced Captain who had the
support of Chivers, Blyth and Barnes among the better batsmen. The
general weakness was in the fielding, far too many vital catches were

school had had to be modihed in the light of circumstances obtaining
here, but on the other hand, he asserted, the principles governing his
general approach remained unchanged and as Hrm as ever. These he
had attempted to explain to parents on the nights they had visited the
school to discuss their sons' progress. He felt that this had been a diffi-

THE GUEST CDF I-I0 0 R'S
Mr. Chairman, Headmaster, Honoured Guests, Students and Staff of
Ashbury College, Ladies and Gentlemen:
It is indeed an honour and a privilege for me to be with you to-day
and especially at your prize-giving and Closing Exercises. As I recall
my days at school, the most joyous day each year was closing day. We
had our Graduation and Convocation at RMC a week ago yesterday and
I know that still holds true at the College.
I thank Mr. Maclaren for his more than gracious introduction. May
I add, all that glitters is not gold. Your Headmaster, Mr. Joyce was
with me at RMC and since I was one year ahead of him, he can easily
provide some details of my career which would balance out those you
have just heard. It is said that you never really know what a wonderful
chap you are until your obituary is published. I can vouch for that
assumption in that I was presumed killed in action for over a year and
am one of those rare individuals who has had the opportunity of still
having sufiicient use of his faculties to read his own obituary.
First, I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to all the
winners of the various prizes and awards. I am certain that your
achievements have not been without a tremendous effort and dedication.
To the compliments already given, may I add my personal "Hell Done".
There has always been a strong connection between Ashbury and
RMC in that many of your graduates have proceeded on to RMC and
have become some of our most illustrious graduates in all walks of life.
RMC has derived other benehts as well from Ashbury. I am certain
that some of the grey hairs, of those few I have left, are the result of
should I say, pranks which had their genesis at Ashbury and were brought
by your graduates to RMC where they burst forth into full bloom with
all the embellishments that can only be added by increased age and
technology. In looking at our common graduates, however. it is most
impressive to see the overwhelming proportion, as compared to graduates
from other educational systems, who have had, or are having dis-
tinguished careers and who have, or are still contributing so much in all
walks of life. It is this point which I would like to discuss for a moment
and what I feel are the basic reasons for that difference.
To me, the real reason for the outstanding success of our graduates is
the education they received here at Ashbury and at RMC, and here I use
the word "education" in its dictionary sense, that is the building of mental
52 THE ASI-IBURIAN
power and character. This is done through academics and training and
I will deal with them in that order.
No-one will deny the fact that it is absolutely essential to obtain the
highest academic standard possible to ensure a life worth living in the
world of tomorrow, but this is being complicated by the tremendous
knowledge explosion which is taking place. Recently, the United
States National Aeronautics and Space Administration estimated
that of all the scientists who have ever lived, 902, are alive today, whereas
25 years ago perhaps 10 mathematicians were all that were needed for
industry and government in the United States, today 200,000 mathemati-
cians are required just to operate computers. They also calculate that
of all the children now in Grades 1 to 8, half will be employed, when
they are of an age to work, in occupations that do not as yet even exist.
Xlr. A. C. Xlonteith of Westinghouse Corporation has described this
knowledge explosion by saying that a graduate engineer now has a half-
life of about 10 years. That is, about half of what he has learned will be
obsolete in ten years and half of what he will need to know in ten years is
not available to him today. I don't think any further proof is necessary
to confirm the absolute necessity of attaining the .highest academic
This factor is certainly foremost in the minds of all educators and
Ashbury is an excellent example. One has only to read your School
Calendar to realize the high qualihcations of your faculty and staff.
Academics and a high academic standing is yours if you are willing to put
forth the required effort.
This knowledge explosion has, however, created a serious problem
in that more and more time must be spent on academics. Since there are
only so many hours a day that can be spent in our academic institutions,
the other part of education, that is training, must suffer. I am not
criticising our public system of education, nor do I say that the teachers
are neglecting this phase of education. They are doing their utmost
with the authority and little time available, albeit all too often without
recognition and sometimes, to our everlasting shame. under severe and
unjust criticism. To gauge the magnitude of their problem. one has
only to read in the newspapers where school principals and teachers have
been overruled in trying to maintain standards of discipline, conduct
and dress which they have set for the students.
I would like to quote to you from an editorial which appeared
recently in the Daily Colonist, BC., entitled "Sad Surrender", concerning
a teenage dance that ended up in a "Donneybrook".
"We have, it seems, reached some sort of a new low in morality,
where self-discijaline is a forgotten attribute and responsibility for be-
haviour is tossed into the bands of young policemen. Perhaps if we try
harder to teach in the teenage levels that it is, or should be, a matter of
THE ASHBURIAN S3
pride for a man to be the master of his fate. he will have reached by the
time he is of college age, that level of dignity and maturity where he may
be expected to be the captain of his soul". This problem, to my mind. is
the lack of the second part of education, namely training.
There is one quality which can be identified as essential to any
successful enterprise and that is the willingness of each and every member
to subordinate his own desires to the best interests of the organization
as a whole. Thomas Huxley, one of the greatest scientists, lecturers and
educationalists, expressed this very well when he said: "Perhaps the most
valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the
thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or
not". In the Armed Forces this quality reaches its maximum during war
when the military demands the ultimate in subordination of self - the
surrender of life. How many of us, when we first started school and
were told to do something, said: "Now, why should I do that when I
don't want to?" I know I did and I soon found out tiat the results of
not doing as I was told destroyed the entire effort of the instructor. I
also found out that the consequences were rapid and rather drastic. It
doesn't take too long under the system you and I know, to school your-
self to obey orders, despite your personal desires. This, then, is the start
of self-discipline, and self-discipline is the cornerstone of leadership.
Before you can lead others, you must first be able to lead yourself. This
is true in any walk of life, as are the two old military axioms:
He who will not accept orders has no right to give them
He who will not serve has no right to command.
I am certain if you look back on your days at Ashbury, you will
find that this is exactly the type of training you have been receiving.
You are acquiring the power of self-discipline and through this you will
develop the true characteristics of leadership. Having attained that
enviable talent, it is now your moral obligation to use it to the utmost.
If you ever have to lead men into combat, which I pray God will never
happen, you will find that you appear before your men stripped of all
insignia and outward signs of authority to command. Your leadership
is judged not by your rank but by whether your men feel you have the
knowledge, training and character that they will obey you unquestion-
ingly and that they can trust you with their lives. Hen are shrewd
judges of character, especially when their own lives are involved. and
your character and behaviour must be such that they are prepared to
follow you, to trust your judgment, and respect your decisions. This
can only be through development of self-discipline and creation of
character. One other and more important factor is that once you are
accepted as a leader, the others will not only follow but also emulate to
54 THE ASHBURIAN
the best of their ability, your character and behaviour. That is why, as
leaders in any walk of life, you must at all times set and maintain the
highest of standards.
This, then, is the reason why I believe so firmly in the independent
schoois such as Ashbury and the graduates which they produce. It is
also the reason why I am so firmly convinced of the importance of the
task being done at the Services Colleges. The big advantage at Ashbury
and RMC then is that we are providing not only the academics but also
the training, and this gives us the big advantage of being able to keep
these two vital aspects of education in their proper balance, which is
essential in the production of men in every sense of that word. To
comprehend the vital importance of this work, one has only to realize
that the recruits entering RMC next year will be the leaders of our
Forces and defenders of our way of life in the year 2000 A.D.
On the same basis, then, how much more vital is the importance of
t ie work being done by Ashbury which is providing that same essential
ingredient of education, namely training, to the younger youths of today.
There is no question in my mind that your and RNlC's graduates of
today are the leaders of tomorrow, because the plain fact is we must have
disciplined minds to teach discipline of the mind. In my humble opinion,
there is no more rewarding or worthwhile task.
In summary, then, may I say, the world needs you, it needs your
youth and energy, but even more, there is an almost desperate need for
your character, your integrity, your willingness to face the issues of right
or wrong, and then to stand up and be counted. Catch phrases are
wonderful things and the one which springs most readily to my mind is
the RMC motto, Truth, Duty, Valour.
Truth -be true in everything you do. If I may quote from
Polonius speech in I-Iamlet: "This above all, to thine own
self be true and it must follow as the night the day, thou
canst not then be false to any man".
Duty - do what you ought to do when you ought to do it, whether
you like it or not, and without having to be commanded
Valour - the all important desire which makes you give a full-out
effort under all circumstances, and to keep on lighting,
even in the face of overwhelming odds.
I.ive by that motto and as a member of society devoted to the service of
your fellow-man, you will not only attain true self-respect but also the
respect of everyone with whom you associate. There can be no better
goal in life. Once again, may I thank you for the honour and privilege
of being with you to-day. I envy your youth and opportunities. I
wish you all success and good luck in the future.

O. KENNEDY L.-xwsox, Head Boy
Mr. Chairman, Mr. Headmaster, distinguished Members of the Board
of Governors, Ladies and Gentlemen, Staff, Fellow Students:
I consider it a great honour and privilege to address you today on
behalf of the graduating class and to try to express our gratitude to
Ashbury for all that it has done for us. The word g'Valedictory" means
"words of farewellw and therefore implies a note of sadness, for it is not
a simple matter to say good-bye to Ashbury which, to those of us who
are leaving, has formed the major part of our lives for the past few years.
Ashbury is not all fun and games by any means. The climb from
the fourth form to the Upper Sixth is at times long and tedious, not only
scholastically, but from an organizational standpoint as well. The new
boy, upon entering the School, is continually haunted by the red jackets
of prefects and the black robes of Nlasters and looks upon them perhaps
as a lowly private looks upon his Superior Officers. However, just as
this private rises through the ranks, so are positions of responsibility
undertaken, in time, by this same new boy - be it an N.C.O. in the
Cadet Corps or a Room Captaincy in the house. So today's fag is
tomorrow's prefect and, as responsibility develops, a sense of belonging
also develops, and this is one of the HIOSIT significant characteristics of
During the past few years there have been many changes at Ashbury.
I have seen the construction of three new houses. The new Library was
built this year and dedicated this morning. This is certainly a welcome
addition for study, research -- or quiet repose! The most significant
change was the welcoming of our new Headmaster, Klr. Joyce. For.
just as last year marked the end of an era, this year marked the beginning
of one. I have thoroughly enjoyed both and am proud and happy to
have been a part of both.
56 THE ASHBURIAN
Although my next point has been harped on many times before, it
is important and, I think, warrants harping on again. It is one of the
many things that we, the graduates, owe to Ashbury and concerns our
education outside the classroom. VVe have been shown through our
experiences here the way to tackle the problems of life and, as we step
into the world on our own, we will find this practical education to be
invaluable. Ideally, we can strive to uphold the School motto which
says "Honour, Courage, Grace" or the School hymn entitled "To Be a
Pilgrim". However, from a practical viewpoint, we can only do our
best to achieve the high goal set down by these fundamentals. lVe are
fortunate, here at Ashbury, in having boys from all parts of the world.
IYe all have in common the School uniform and what it represents, and
from this unity close ties are made, some of which will never be broken.
And now it is time to say good-bye and, while doing so, to think
back on all the good times and the bad times we have experienced. The
bad times are those which are typical for any schoolboy at any time.
They consist of such things as a failed or unprepared exam, the loss of
a big game, an extra Cadet Parade, or another one of the Headmaster's
centennial lectures which 'the whole school will attend and the whole
school will enjoyf lYhen we have gone, however, it will not be these
times that we remember, but, rather the good times.
It is difficult to state definitely what was a 'fgood time" or why it
was a good time. I suppose any time that you can remember with happi-
ness was a "good timew but what makes it that way? Good times are
not always on a large scale, - the problem that xvouldn't work out is
finally solved, the girl across the road flashes you a smile, you heard an
extremely good joke. On a broader scale, there is the championship
soccer game, making the play-ofifs in football or the defeat of the "Old
Boys" in hockey after a season of fifteen successive losses. It is the good
times and the fellowship and the teamwork and that sense of belonging
which we will look back on and recall for a long time to come.
On behalf of the graduating class, and particularly the prefects, I
would like to thank the Staff Members for their support and guidance
during the course of the year. I would like to thank the Prefects, the
Room Captains, day-boy Monitors and junior School Xlonitors, all of
whom have something to be proud of. Indeed, so has anyone else and
everyone else who has givenisomething of himself for the good of the
School. You get from Ashbury, as from anything in life, exactly what
you put into it. l hope that you all have a wonderful holiday and, to
those returning, the best of luck for next year.
To close, l would like to present the graduation class gift. In most
years the gift has been in the form of a picture. but we felt that this year,
this gift of pre-recorded tapes to the Library would be appropriate.
l ask Nlr. ,loyce to accept this on behalf of the School.

XVHAT CENTENNIAL CAN DO FOR CANADA
During Centennial year, 'Expo '67', a huge Centennial celebration
in the form of a XVorld,s fair, as well as various other National, Provincial
and co-operative Provincial projects, are uniting Canadians and Canada
and giving the country world-wide recognition.
Could timid Canadians really be getting this vast publicity to such
a degree that even Americans are calling 'Expo' the greatest show ever?
Millions of people are converging upon Montreal which has been
solidly 'booked up' for months. This tremendous international excite-
ment coupled with other Centennial projects about the country might
bring about a fantastic Canadian boom.
Canadians are becoming proud now and venturing so far as to boast.
However, we must not rest on our laurels, and coast downhill as we did
after the Second XYorld Har boom. We must in fact accelerate this
well-being and keep it at a high rate. By doing this Canada might
emerge from the ever looming LYS. shadow, as a strong independent
Expo and Centennial are also building a world image of Canada as
a free capable Nation and not as a useless British Colony, or that country
north of the LYS. These impressions must be sustained if Canada is to
prosper from Centennial year and find a distinct national identity.
Canada might be unified through Centennial, since many projects
are carried out co-operatively between provinces. This could create
more understanding and potential trade and commerce bonds. Canada's
economic split could be mended by these Centennial projects so as to
provide another boom for the country and more prospective wealth.
Canadians are starting to travel their own territory instead of the
US.. and are discovering the unbounding potential of Canada. They
are meeting other Canadians and sharing a common feeling of elation and
pleasure. There is no doubt in my mind that if Canada takes advantage
of this year's opportunities the twentieth century can be hers for the

A SIMPLE THOUGHT
A coward dies a thousand deaths,
The valiant only one.
But, here lie the valiant on the ground,
Surrounded by cowards and clowns.
Now the valiant have died their once,
But still their life goes on.
For you see, the valiant aren't really men,
But merely foolish clowns.
Foolish clowns, you say!
Surely this is false.
And if not,
Is the world at fault?
No, the world is not at fault,
Nor are men and God a part

TI-IE GROXYING PROBLEM OF GARBAGE AND
POLLUTION IN OUR MODERN SOCIETY
If scientists can be believed, and nine times out of ten they can,
future generations, and not such distant future generations at that, will
all die due solely to one cause. Their deaths won't be caused by uncon-
trollable diseases or by the natural elements, but by air, land and water
If the word 'pollution' enters any conversation it is almost always
followed by the word 'automobilel It seems amazing that an object
as small as a car is in this huge world of ours could cause so much trouble
now and so many great doubts and fears for the future. Nevertheless,
it is true. The automobile is, at the moment, the prime contributor to
air pollution in the world today. An automobile certainly isnit big and
by itself doesn't emit much poisonous gas, but when you consider two
million automobiles in one area alone Can example is the Los Angeles
areaj all adding their own exhaust fumes to the air, things begin to look
a little black. Naturally this air over the course of a few decades will
become not only unbearable, but also unliveable in. At the moment the
only way air pollution by automobiles can be stopped is by having a car
that produces no exhaust. Such a car would run on rechargeable
batteries. This car would be powerful and fast, yet produce no harmful
exhaust. Perhaps cars with combustion engines will soon have some
sort of Hlter or adapter to prevent all injurious gases from ever leaving
Factories have not attracted quite as widespread attention as auto-
mobiles have. Consequently they have been able to get away with more
and more air and water pollution than IHOSI people would ever suspect.
However, the hold on factories is tightening up, and it isn't coming too
soon either. Factories aren't very far behind cars in air pollution and
are almost completely the source of all water pollution. Every factory
has to have waste material and for the most part factory managers let this
industrial waste go up and out the chimney. or down and out the pipes
unattended and undoctored. There are a few factories. however, fand
the number is increasingJ that have taken the initiative and begun to cope
with the ever-growing problem of pollution. Canadian plants such as
the Steel Company of Canada and Canadian Industries Limited are
among these. Ar the Steel Company of Canada expensive electro-static
filters have been placed on all chimneys reducing the amount of poisonous
gas normally released by close to one hundred percent. At Canadian
Industries Limited filters and sewage treatment plants have been added
to their factories to ensure reduction of air and water pollution.
THE ASHBURIAN 71
A third major cause of pollution, a cause not quite so obvious yet.
but which will be sooner or later, is that of war. With war, of course.
come all the bombs, missiles and rockets any and every scientist had ever
dreamed of. The big nuclear bombs bring deadly radiation which not
only has immediate results, but also long-term results, as shown bv
Hiroshima, the japanese city which had the honour of being the first
city ever to be wiped off the face of the earth by only one bomb. Since
that same bomb wasn't considered to be very powerful, it docsn't take
very much imagination to realize that even a small nuclear war between
two small nations could easily bring about the end of the world, as we
know it. I
North America's west coast is supplied with fresh, clean air almost
entirely by the Pacific. I.Yhat would happen if China suddenly built
hundreds of factories and every Hfth Chinese went out and bought a
car? It would mean that the clean air which up until then had replaced
western North Americas dirty air would itself be dirty and filled with
smog. Instead of getting rid of western North America's air problem
Pacific air would double the problem. Industrialization of China may
take a long time but it will certainly come, and when it does all North
Americans will be able to do is to sit back with their gas masks on and
wish they had done something about pollution a long time ago.
THE VERY SLUNIP UF LIFE
Although I am happy,
I will soon be sad,
As the school years end,
I must leave my only love.
The warmth I feel in her presence
Must come to an end
For I must carry on
To better pursuits in this world.
Our short time together
Has been the happiest of my life
But all good things come to an end
As the very slump of life begins.

WHAT PRICE PROGRESS?
In the past few years a cry has been heard from a number of critics
of the U.S. moon program. They have stated that the hurry to put a
man on the moon is a shocking waste of public money which might be
used for better purposes.
People who denounce this program must surely belong to a re-
actionary society that would soon have us back in the Dark Ages. If
Queen Isabella of Portugal had not "wasted" money on three ships,
Columbus would never have discovered America.
The idea that the moon shot is a waste is inconsistent with ideas of
expanding knowledge. The long range benehts from the whole space
program are immeasurable. Vkiho knows what we might Hnd on the
moon? Perhaps some new medicines to cure some of our diseases, or
new mineral resources to provide us with power when our own fuel
stocks have been depleted. Space technology also promises to benefit
us in a few short years. YYe will be flying in huge planes which can
cross the Atlantic in two to three hours. We are learning more every
day about aviation thanks to space research.
If a settlement was reached in the Vietnamese Var, Russia and the
United States could perhaps cooperate and start a joint moon program.
But as it stands now, this is very unlikely.
The country which does accomplish the feat first will gain a huge
amount of prestige the world over and that is why there is this tre-
mendous race. By prestige I do not mean just vainglory, but respect
and influence in the eyes of the world. This could influence peace
negotiations which might settle our differences and do away with wars,
such as the present Vietnamese Har and the Israeli-Arab conHict.
The United States will spend 10.4 billion dollars on health, labour
and welfare in the fiscal year ending in June 1968. lt will spend 8.9
billion dollars on housing and community development and a total of
almost 20 billion dollars on such things as agriculture, transportation,
veterans affairs, and education. lt will spend 5.264 billion dollars on
Foreign Assistance. ln comparison to all these it will spend 70 billion
dollars on defense and a comparably small amount of 5.6 billion dollars
on space research, of which 3 billion will go to the moon program and
2.6 billion to aircraft technology. Thus one can see that this is not a very
high price to pay for a program which will be of such immense value to
In any event the moon program cannot be called a loss of money
because all the money spent on it by the L'.S. is spent in the L'.S. thus it
assists the L'.S. economy by keeping its money in circulation in its own
country. It employs labour and manufactures its own material and

We are learning so much about outer space that no one knows what
new scientific discoveries are just over the threshold because of this
program. Perhaps we may learn to control the weather and even inhabit
parts of the world now considered uninhabitable.

trying to command the waves to go back. Alan must forever go

BEING A STUDENT AT ASHBURY
Being a student at Ashbury has been a tremendous experience for me
in my Hrst year.
Last year my parents asked me if I would like to go to boarding
school. I thought it over for a while and decided that it would be well
worthwhile. I was then given a bundle of prospectuses and asked to
choose, by the help of those pamphlets which school I would like to at-
tend. After careful deliberation I came to the conclusion that I would
like Ashbury. The reasons were that I would be in the Capital city,
which is where I've always wanted to be for a while, that I would meet
boys from all over the world and that I would get a better education
because of smaller classes, supervised study and excellent teachers.
I must say I was really excited about coming here and when I arrived
everyone made me feel at home and I have enjoyed it ever since.
Although I have not improved a great deal in marks I have learned
how to get down to work.
The school has not measured up to my expectations completely
however. There is a great lack of Winning Spirit which is just as much
my fault as anyone's.
At Ashbury I have enjoyed playing sports, drilling for cadets and
participating in societies.
At this school there are many advantages. We live with the same
fellows we go to school with and do things with them day in and day out.
There are plenty of things to do in our spare time such as play tennis.
soccer, football, basketball, cricket and watch television. We get to see
a marvellous city. There are also disadvantages. Nlany Ashbury

boarders have girl friends at home whom we don't see for a long time
which can get very depressing at times. Some also have developed
smoking habits and smoking is not allowed which can also be depressing.
Leave is given all day Saturday and Sunday but I think late leave is too
restricted for intermediates.
I have learned many new things and have enjoyed most of my
year-long stay at Ashbury.

TIIIL COLDIQST DAY OF THE YI-'AR
How does it affect me? At this time of my imprisoned life, the
coldest day of the year has no effect on me whatsoever. The day in
question I did not take one step out of my parent-given prison. i
All I can do to write an essay like this is to reminisce, and remember
the time when the coldest day of the year meant something to me. .XS
I think back I can remember those freezing days from beginning to end.
They would start out with the radio telling me that instead of the ex-
pected warm spell that had been predicted Qsome miscalculation on the
weatherman's partl today's would be a record low. That meant that
breakfast would have to fortify me, so I could brave the cold winds, and
the only thing my mother ever thought of to use was that white lumpy
porridge. Off to that bad start I would go out to face the howling winds,
and knee-deep snow. To me the snow was just some God-given ob-
stacle to hinder my walk to school. I could never look on it and say to
myself that those tiny white Hakes, so perfect in every way, combined
to make one of the prettiest sights on earth. I could never see how an
expanse of beautiful virgin snow seemed to some people the ultimate in
beauty. On the way to school the traditional snow-ball fight would
ensue. He would take the snow and press it so hard in our hands that
in no time at all we would each have our own shining ice-ball. But
being the Iirmest of friends we would not use those but instead would use
lightly packed snow-balls. The trickly feeling of one of those dripping
down my back is one of my keenest memories of those bygone days.
Usually on the way to school Qwhich in those days was fun and not
hatedj we would come upon a snowblower. These gargantuan ma-
chines with their whirling blades would slowly proceed down the edge
of the street breaking up the snow and then shooting it on to the lawns
with a huge blower. At school the halls would be covered with the
melted snow, and when you took your boots off it was as if you were
wading in a river. And then came the first period of the day when
everyones hands were so cold no one could write, and no one really
wanted to, for we were all busy whispering to each other about why we
should have stayed home or how some schools were closed but not oursl
XYhen school was finally finished, there would be a mad dash across
the frozen playground to the buses, which would quickly fill to a jammed
capacity with the air so unbearably hot, it was hard to believe it was
below zero outside. And then after a few hurried phone calls there
would be a game of ball hockey on someones frozen driveway, with
people falling everywhere on the sheer surface. After supper, and
homework, I would fall asleep to the howling wind, never dreaming that
some day I would be in a situation in which a day like that would be

And provide employment or aid,

Rain comes and goes in shapeless forms
It falls in cyclones and also in storms,
It's colourless, odourless, without real weight
It comes early in April and always stays late.
Rain keeps us enveloped and leaves us bored
Too bad it comes on its own accord,
If I had my way I'd rid this pest
The odds are still weighted that sun is the best.
I stumbled along the road of life,
My head Hlls up like a big square cup,
Minds are blowing, cut by the knife
And the Danish Vibrator picks me up.

Psychedaelic Sam is the all-wise.

And the bright white knight hurts my eyes.

Master in Clmrgc of the junior School, 1954-196'
so THE ASHBURIAN
Those of us who are leaving junior School are encountering mixed
emotions. There is the anticipation of going into Senior School, oppos-
ing that is the sad thought of leaving behind all that has become so much a
part of our lives in the junior School. Alr. Polk's little rhymes of
"O,S,T" in Latin and French, Mr. Sherwood's enthusiastic coaching, Mr.
XYhitwill's profound science experiments, Mr. Goldsmith's endless
callisthenics, separate chapel, lunch, and games, and last but not least, the
green jackets, are all unique to the junior School. These will be left
behind, but we trust that new experiences in the Senior School will
continue to enrich our lives. And so a fond farewell to the junior
School, and a hopeful hello to the Senior School.
These paragraphs should concern themselves with three main topics.
A brief history of the junior School, a welcome to the incoming Master-
in-Charge, and a short farewell.
The first topic presents me with a psychological problem. Modesty
and a natural tendency to remain in the background vie with a real sense
of pride. I have decided to allow this latter to overrule.
Until 1954 the junior School was not a separate unit of Ashbury.
At this time, however, dining room, chapel, and games Helds were in-
adequate to handle the whole school. XYhen .Argyle was built Mr.
Perry decided to separate the two schools so that the facilities of Ashbury
could be used at separate times by juniors and seniors. He asked me to
take over the responsibility for the juniors.
The summer of 195+ was a busy and exciting time. Uiorking with
the good experience and advice of Arthur Brain we produced timetables,
courses of study and a daily routine which would dovetail into the Senior
School program. We were conscious that from the opening day in
September, the atmosphere and details of the daily round would become
traditions over the years. Some of these details have been modified
THE ASHBURIAX Sl
fthere is considerably less corporal punishment now than in the early
yearsj, some abandoned fmilk and bikkies at four for the juniorsl, but
most have developed as we planned and have produced a fine junior
School. The academic atmosphere is one of which l am most proud.
A boy who shines in the classroom is admired by his classmates. An-
other atmosphere almost equally important is that the boys like their
school. They accept the necessary restrictions with reasonable grace
and, being happy at Ashbury, they develop healthily in and out of the
classroom. There is a third atmosphere which has helped us over the
years. This is one of cooperation and friendliness between our parents
and the staff.
The account of the first years of the Junior School must include the
name of Ian Spencer. He was my volatile assistant for the first ten years.
The parents who knew him will understand my use of the adjective! If
I were to name qualities which are needed to make a fine junior School
master I should choose enthusiasm, conscientiousness, willingness to
perform cheerfully the many extra chores which will constantly arise in
a boys' boarding school, and finally an unusual personality which brands
a person as a "character". Ian Spencer was all this.
This leads me into my second topic. A welcome to Nlichael Sher-
wood. Nlr. Sherwood taught for me several years ago in our junior
School. He left for the business world, but soon returned to teaching.
taking a position at Selwyn House School. Two years ago when I con-
sidered a move to the Old Boys Ofiice Cwork which I did part time with
great pleasure from 1952-19605, I asked Mr. Perry to consider Xlr.
Sherwood as a replacement. He was approached. he accepted and
worked this past year as my assistant recapturing the feel of Ashbury.
The qualities listed above fit Nlr. Sherwood, but I write this with some
hesitation. I hedge on the last of these qualities. Alike Sherwood is to
be my boss next year and I don't want to antagonize him before the year
even starts! I wish him success.
Finally, farewell. A very short paragraph as I will not be far from
the junior School. For half of each day I will be teaching Quniors, the
rest of the day will find me in an office in the main building.

THE ASHBURIAN .YS
TH E YEAR
Details of the school year are soon forgotten during the course of a
school boy's busy life and so, for the permanent record, here are some of
the highlights of the year just past.
SPORTS DINNER. The victorious junior School Soccer Team at-
tended this Dinner which was held at the school in the winter term.
BOXING. About 35 boys signed for the boxing tournament. Xlr.
Byford, who has boxed for his university, gave preliminary talks and
began classes in the fundamentals. Unfortunately he was unable to
continue due to temporary ill health. We look forward to his advice
and help next year.
I-IUXIANE SOCIETY CONTEST. This is an annual affair and the
winners of books were:
Grade 6. jelenick - Poppe - Taticek
Grade 7. Stewart
Grade 8. Wilson
BOOK CREST CONTEST. A contest was open to the whole school
to design a book crest for Ashbury, suitable for permanent use in our
fine new library. There was a large response from the junior School
fwe put the seniors to shame! D. Some entries were original and good.
The final decisions must wait until the fall.
EXCIJRSIONS. We seem to have made a greater number of trips away
from school this past year than ever before. The highlight of course
was the three-day invasion of Expo of which there is a separate account.
F1111 IV66li'67Id. Boarders were given a full weekend shortly after school
started in September with a visit to the National Gallery on Saturday
and a picnic in the country on Sunday.
Imllboree. The juniors attended the annual public school hockey
jamboree at the RCAF arena on March -fth. Mr. Polk, Nlrs. Boyce
and Xlrs. Dignard were judges of the centennial costumes.
Ten Little Indiails. The junior School attended a performance of this
Agatha Christie thriller. It was an exciting evening made more
interesting because the play was produced by Paul Xlarland, a former
The Viemm Choir Boys. IYe had good seats for the fine performance
at the Capitol Theatre.
Pigslein Parade. Many from the junior School watched this colourful
introduction to High School football at Lansdowne Park on
R-I THE ASI-IBURIAN
Class Trips. It was decided to take half a day from school on March 22.
Grade 8 boys visited Magistrates Court. After court adjourned the
boys were asked to remain and Magistrate Strike talked to the group.
Grades 6 and 7 visited the Parliament buildings and the art gallery.
G01'677I07'-G67I6VH1 Vf111ie1f's Fmzwfal. At this sad but impressive cere-
mony the juniors joined with the Seniors lining Sussex Drive as the
funeral procession marched to the Basilica.
G01'6T7I71167II H owe. On Saturday February 18 all junior boarders
walked to the government house grounds and were taken on a guided
tour of the public rooms of Government House itself.
ACADEMIC STIMULATION. VVe take pride in the fact that a boy
who is outstanding in the classroom is looked up to by his classmates.
Heroes on the sports field are of course regarded with awe by youngsters,
but I think no less regard is held for the boy who shines on the academic
field. Our Top Banana and Sensational Seven clubs help to maintain this
healthy situation, but this year a new stimulus was added in the Colour
Board. Coloured thumb racks were placed next to each boy,s name on
a large chart at the head of the stairs in Argyle. The colour had refer-
ence only to a boy's effort - his actual marks were not considered.
Gold - excellent, Green - good, Yellow - watch out! and Red - no
effort. XVhenever a new set of colours was placed on the board the
excitement in the junior School ran very high. Golden boys this year
were: Boyd I, Osmond, VVilson I, Macneil, Harmstone, Lynch-Staunton
I, Stewart, jelenick, Taticek, Chick, McLeod I, Macleod II, Ford, Har-
court, Loeb, Lynch-Staunton II and Tench. These boys earned four
or more golds during the year.
One concrete benefit to be gained from hard work all year is being
excused from final examinations. VVe set our standards higher this year,
an 8032, average was needed. The following boys enjoyed a well-
Transitus A - Boyd, Osmond, IVilson
IIIA - Macneil, Stewart, Joyce

A movie, a tennis tournament, the traditional visit to the Chateau
pool, and trips to the Boyd and Stewart summer cottages helped to pass
their hours while the balance of the junior School was labouring under
the pressure of the examination hall.
THE ASHBURIAN ,W
A TALK. On February 28 Mr. I. C. Pemberton, former head of the
History Department at Ashbury and now lecturing at XYestern, gave a
talk to the boys on the events surrounding the death of Lincoln. The
boys were fascinated.
PRO-IFCT. One of the junior Schools minor centennial projects was
"The XYaisting Away of Anapolsky I" and "Roger's Battle of the Bulge".
A chart was kept outside Mr. Polk's office and daily weights were
recorded. Roger started at 113 and got down to 100, thereby winning
his battle. Anapolsky waisted away from 13-1 to 127.
JUNIOR SCHOOL CONCERT. The following was the program for
the concert which was held one rainy day in early spring.
1. Skit - Poppe and Hurley. The IYackiest Submarine in the

CLUBS. Friday night clubs were formed for the boarders. The model
making group was the most popular, but many juniors joined as onlookers
at the senior judo Club, and sports Hlms attracted good audiences. A
parenthetical note of interest to juniors. Mr. Polk and Mr. Sherwood
were the chefs at the first meeting of the Gastronomic Society fa Senior
clubb. Their Bangkok curry brought tears to the eyes of the members.
RED FEATHER. The juniors have established a fine tradition of
generosity when public appeals are made for charity. Our total donation
toward the Red Feather campaign was 551925, an average of almost 20
cents a boy.
ANOTHER TALK. The boarders were presented with an unusual
Sunday evening on March 12. His Excellency Monsignor Sergio
Pignedoli, the Apostolic Delegate to Canada, attended Chapel and
addressed the School in the Argyle auditorium after the service. The
boys were impressed with his warm personality.
Tlllf ASIlBL'RY-IQLMXYOOD PLAYS. Boarders were joined by a
number of day boys on the evening of April 28 for a visit to lilmwood.
There a double bill was presented consisting of "A Battle of XYits" and
"Trial by jury". The juniors were particularly interested because
Mr. Sherwood was one of the jurors in the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.
HORSIQBACK RIDING. Boarders were again this year given the
opportunity to go riding on Saturdays. Some of our ski enthusiasts
also made use of the ski bus which left Ashbury for the Gatineau on

A note in the Ashhurian of june, 1944 under the heading of KIUSIC

came from enrichment within the framework of the original ideals.
Uve in the -Iunior School have felt that music is perhaps the most

them in 20 years what the value of Tan A may be, or the endings of the
future active of Rego, or even who won the Battle of Blenheim. If a
boy has developed a fondness for music he of course has a fuller and
happier adult life.
Irene lYoodburn made all this possible. Few boys can have gone
through her classes without some good effect, and many boys gained a
love of music which is to last their lifetimes.
Music, like any other valuable interest must be studied and to some
extent analysed for it to become genuinely appreciated. Presentation on
a platter - in the case of music, mere listening, does little to stir up an
intense fondness for anything.
Here again Miss Vlfoodburn made her great contribution. Her
classes were always fun, but along with the listening was the background
work, as outlined in her original credo.
Her leaving is a great loss to Ashbury and we are consoled only
because we know she will not lose complete touch with the college.
This has been a gratifying year musically at Ashbury. The junior
School music education classes have continued as in previous years with
the study of the lives and music of the composers, singing rhythmic
activities and projects.
This year the peak of our activities was the production of the
opera "Hansel and Gretelv. This was a combined effort of the junior
School students and staff. An account of the production appears else-
Not to be outdone by the juniors, the seniors, encouraged by the
inspiration of the padre Mr. lan VVatson, combined forces with the girls
of Elmwood and put on two rollicking performances of Gilbert and
Sullivan's "Trial by jury". l feel now it will not be too difficult to
interest the seniors in a few more of these productions.
At the request of our headmaster a series of concerts was introduced
on Sunday evenings. One was held each term. These concerts were
made possible by the presentation of a beautiful Heintzman piano to the
school by the Mothers' Guild. Some of the most talented young artists
in the city performed at these concerts.
ln November the Ashbury Choir under the direction of Mr. God-
frey Hewitt gave a very interesting program of early 18th century
music. Mr. Hewitt did a group of organ solos which proved to be a
miracle of sound from a very limited instrument. His two very gifted
children, Angela and john, assisted with solos on the harpsichord and
THE ASHBL'RlA.N' .89
In january the Glebe Collegiate l.yre's Club under the direction of
Xlr. D. Ilassell presented a varied program, from Bach and llandel to
the "Sound of Music" of Richard Rodgers. This lively group is plan-
ning a singing tour of Ifurope this summer after many successful
appearances in and around Ottawa. The guest pianist was Georgina
Thornton, a soloist with the Civic Symphony.
The final centennial concert in the spring term was a program by
the award winning "Cantabile Choir" from Fisher Park High School
under the direction of Xlrs. Bernice Oakes. The highlight of the evening
was the presentation of Don XYright's "Proudly We Praise". a salute
to Canada. Each province was represented by music which catches the
mood and colour of the land. The guest artists were Nancy Finlayson.
Hautist, and john Tickner, trumpeter.
The time has come when the musical activities at Ashbury must
expand and be coordinated throughout the whole school. I sincerely
hope that anything I may have contributed to the music at Ashbury will
have paved the way for the future.
I must pay tribute here to my worthy colleagues Xlr. Godfrey
Hewitt who has contributed so much to the development of the Ashbury
Choir and to Miss Gerda Selman who has taught the piano students.
It has been a joy throughout the years to greet my classes in the
fall and then to try in my own unorthodox fashion to open the doors to
an understanding of the beauty of great music. It is with mingled sad-
ness and joy that I have decided to terminate this phase of my music
teaching after twenty-three years at Ashbury. Sadness at leaving the
boys whom I have grown to know and who have become a very dear
part of my life, and joy in knowing that there is a greater interest in
music at Ashbury which in time will make the school, now noticed for
its academic and cadet activities, known as a place where music plays an
important role. I

His special services. particularly the annual Candlelight Service, and
this year, the Choir Concert, have been memorable. Under his direction
our choir has blossomed richly.
He are sorry that his duties in the Cathedral and in Ottawa's musical
world will not allow him to find the time to return to us. We shall miss
90 THE ASHBURIAN
HANSEL AND GRETEL
The evening of Sunday the 26th of February finally arrived. There
had been long weeks of anxious preparation with all the worries, excite-
ments, frustrations and hard work which make up the background of
any amateur Cno doubt professional, tool stage production.
Miss VVoodburn conceived the idea of an adaption of Humper-
dinck's opera, Hansel and Gretel in the fall. She and her husband wrote
a 21 page libretto for our Junior School preserving the Havour and the
important music of the original. The result was a real achievement.
The list of behind the scene organizers included Mr. Carter, who headed
the stage crew, Dr. Spencer, Mrs. Boyce and Mrs. Dignard were the
make-up artists, Mr. and Mrs. Hendricks produced the sets and costumes,
Mr. Goldsmith, whose artistic talents transformed the sets into frighten-
ing forests, Ian XVahn produced professional lighting effects.
A separate paragraph must be allowed for Mr. Sherwood who was
the director. His ent iusiasm and good natured bullying produced a
smooth production. Toward the end of rehearsals Mr. Charles VVright
brought valuable advice.
Some real stage talent was uncovered in the junior School. Martin
Stead and Philip Bounsall were uninhibited and relaxed on stage as the
broom maker and his wife. The children, Hansel and Gretel were
played by Mark Joyce and Bob Babbitt and their performance was con-
vincing. Nicky Polk was properly frightening as the Vifitch, while
Rory Macneil and Derek Pryde sang the parts of the Sandman and Dew-
man with clear and lovely voices.
The chorus of angels was composed of Pryde, Peterson, Babbitt I,
Babbitt III, Boyd I, jelenick, Gillett, Plummer, Cuthbertson, Reeve,
Lynch-Staunton I, Boyd II, Merkley and Grills.
The Gingerbread children were Cuthbertson, jelenick, Peterson,
Reeve, Plummer, Thompson and VVilson III.
A full house was present at the performance. Both adults and
children enjoyed the play and the haunting music which will last, I
know, particularly in the memories of the cast.

92 THE ASHBURIAN
I think it best to reproduce here a letter sent to the junior School
A most successful excursion? You will have heard a great deal
from your sons about the trip to Expo, but I think you will be interested
in a few of the details which the children, perhaps, will not have passed
on to you.
To begin with I must give great credit to Mr. Sherwood. He began
the organization of this trip some months ago, and during our time
in Montreal he arranged everything so that the group of 108 coasted
smoothly through the three days.
The most difficult job of supervision was undertaken by Mrs. Boyce
and Nliss Bray, last years school nurse. They took in tow the youngest
boys and made a noble contribution to the trip.
The boys all behaved very well and I have publicly congratulated
them for their cooperation.
Our accommodation was in double bunks at a boy scout camp,
24 boys and 2 staff members to a cabin. It was cold the Hrst night, but
otherwise quite adequate.
Wie divided into eight groups meeting for meals and special pavilion
visits. Feeding the group was Mr. Sherwood's greatest triumph. Break-
fasts were arranged at two restaurants in Hudson, lunches and dinners
were taken care of on the grounds - this was a major undertaking!
On Wednesday we followed the program laid down by the Expo
authorities. Home early to bed.
Un Thursday La Ronde Camusement areal was put out of bounds
and the eight groups visited pavilions, meeting for a Fine dinner, and then
home to bed by about 10 o'clock.
Friday morning we all stayed together for a trip through the Bell
Telephone Pavilion, then after a group lunch we allowed the boys to visit
La Ronde or pavilions, meeting at 4 o'clock for the Hnal round-up and
the trip back to Ottawa.
Our impression of Expo was of an extremely well organized fair,
with reasonable prices, no trouble in transportation within the grounds
and not any atmosphere of trying to "take the customers" which has
been found, I believe, at some recent world fairs.
Your cost will be reduced to S53 3.50 instead of the anticipated 3535.00
because of a rather inexpensive first dinner.

JUNIOR SCHOOL CIIAPICI.
Every morning at 8: 35 the 'luniors go to Chapel. At this service we
iirst have prayers, then the monitors take turns reading a lesson which
we have on every day except Xlondays and Fridays. XYhen we have
prayers we get down right on our knees which is a junior School
Un Nlondays there is no chapel and Mr. Polk makes announcements
on the goings on of the week. On Fridays Nlr. llewitt had a practice
with the juniors and the seniors of the Sunday hymns. Nlr. l lewitt took
the choir this year as usual and anyone who has heard it will agree that he
produced a very good choir this year. Mrs. Brown played the organ at
church services and choir practices, and once or twice a week came in to
play during our morning service.
The choir monitor was Bryan Boyd and the chapel monitor was
D. K. Oak
XVe are looking forward to the junior section in the new library
which has been set aside for our use, however the inconvenient facilities
offered during this past year did not prevent the borrowing of books in
greater numbers than ever before. Dr. Spencer gave her time in between
her remedial reading classes and kept a careful record of the books
borrowed. She gave the number from time to time to Mr. Polk who
would make an announcement in the dining hall or in assembly, con-
gratulating the boys for their use of the library. XVhen we reached
999 a day or two before the end of the term Gillett dashed in and bor-
rowed a book to make the even thousand. Actually we finished the
year with a record 1003 books borrowed by boys of the junior School.
Dr. Spencer also catalogued all the books and took a great interest. We
thank her very much.

Parents will be interested in the fact that Ashbury is being used as
a hostel during the summer mainly for groups stopping over in Gttawa
on their way to EXPO. Groups from Europe, the United States and
Canada have already made use of the facilities and seem pleased with their
somewhat unusual type of accommodation. Xlr. Polk is managing
Ashbury-in-Transit assisted by Mr. de Coreuera. If you know of any
groups coming to Ottawa give the school a call!
94 THE ASHBURIAN
Twenty-five boys entered the preliminaries of the Poetry Reading
contest. lVe can take a certain pride in the fact that this contest always
commands such widespread interest. Mr. Sherwood and Mr. Polk
reduced the number to six finalists, and Mr. Ian XVatson, head of the
English department, consented to judge the final round. His account
The Competition was held on Thursday, june lst in Argyle and
there were six finalists who each read a poem of his own choice, a set one
which had been prepared beforehand, and an unseen one which he saw
for the first time as he stepped onto the stage. These last two poems
were Blondin by VValter de la Mare, and The Night of Trafalgar by
Thomas Hardy. The readers acquitted themselves well and were not
in the least embarrassed by having to read in public to a large group of
tlieir fellow students, who applauded them as they saw fit. Marks were
awarded for accuracy, knowledge of the sense, attention to pace and
rhythm, clarity of diction and quality of expression. There was a close
finish and Stead just came home the winner. The Hnal marks were as
follows: Stead, 23, Joyce and Macneil, 22, Bounsall, 20, Perley, 18,
After lunch on the last Friday of the term before examination week,
the junior School was assembled, comfortably seated on the grass in the
shade of a large elm tree. At this assembly the names of the fortunate
ones who were excused examinations were read out, ribbons were handed
to the winners in the junior track meet, then the major business of the
meeting was conducted. This was the Public Speaking contest.
Twelve boys, the contestants, secluded themselves, then each in turn
came to the group and was told that his speech was 'fThe Value of
junior School Monitors". He was given two minutes to organize his
thoughts, then addressed the assembly on the topic. The judges were
Nlr. Sherwood and Mr. Carter and the best speaker was judged to be

JU ioR SPORTS
This year the school produced what proved to be one of our best
soccer teams in that it won the city public school championship. Our
record against the private schools was not as good. Under the fine
leadership of Mr. Sherwood, we came back from two solid defeats at
the beginning of the year to beat Selwyn House and all the public school
teams but one. On the first weekend of November, the 'city playoffs
were held on our grounds. In two exciting games, we edged past
Rockcliffe Park l-0, our spirit and continuous drive enabling us to hold

INTRAMURAL HOUSE POINTS
A change in the house system was introduced last September and all
members of the junior School were joined in Alexander House. For
purposes of competition we divided the juniors into four groups, the
HOBBITS, the DRAGONS, the XYIZARDS and the GOBLINS.
Points could be made for a boy's house in all branches of activities.
Academic achievement counted equally with athletic ability. Individual
points could be obtained for chess, poetry reading, public speaking, choir,
and excellence on the colour board. .-Xn interesting feature of this new
system was that points were LOST for a boys' house if he was in deten-
tion, had a red on the colour board or Qhorrid thoughtl received a caning.
The system has worked well and the name on the plaque which will
hang on an Argyle wall for the school year 1966-1967 is HOBBITS.

Twenty-three juniors scored points for their houses and the result
was close, the Dragons edging out the Hobbits by a score of 16 to 15.
Mr. Goldsmith called for volunteers to form a volleyball team.
Practices were held daily after lunch. Considering the many interrup-
tionsg conhrmation classes, choir practices, stationery issue and play
rehearsals, a creditable performance was produced by the team when it
competed in a round robin at Roekcliffe Park Public School. Our boys
came third out of the six teams. Members of the team were Haggar,
McLeod I, Harmstone, Stewart, Macleod Il, Nlacneil, Crinion, Grant-
XVhyte, Grace and Robertson.
A basketball league was organized to play on those winter days
when no ice was available and during the time between the melting of
the rinks and the start of the spring activities. Every boy was placed
on a team whether junior C8 teamsl, Bantam C4 teams! or Pee lYee C4
teamsj. In the junior final Hobbits won against Goblinsg in the Bantam
final VVizards defeated Hobbitsg and the Dragons edged out the Goblins
to take the Pee Hee championship.
A junior team was formed to represent Ashbury in the Public
School tournament. It was our first effort in this league and we had an
inexperienced but enthusiastic group. We came third out of four.

Our hockey team was also a big improvement over last year.
Again we beat all the public school teams but one, and in the biggest
game of the season in Montreal, we edged past Selwyn House 2 to 1.
The proudest person there was our coach, Mr. Sherwood, since he taught
at Selwyn House last year. Revenge had been found, and we were all
Mprecious little toadsn, when we came off the ice. However, in the
return game we were soundly defeated.
Against Sedbergh, we split a home and home series evenly, each
game the score being 5-2. Some spectacular over-the-net goals were
scored for our side. In our final trip to Montreal, we lost a one-sided
game to L.C.C. 8-0.
In the public school story, we were in second place all the way
through the season. However, in the hnal game of regular season play,
we lost to Rockcliffe Park, bringing us down to third place and out of
the finals. In a consolation game, we got our revenge against Rockcliffe
by beating tiiem 4 to I.
Twice a week we had practices on indoor ice, and some of our
games were played during these times.
ln intramural hockey the Hobbits CCrinion, captainb defeated the

The cricket season seemed extremely short this year because of the
late spring. Howeyer, we produced two very line teams. Because of
the trip to lfxpo, we were not able to arrange a game against Cloyern-
ment House. The Under 1-I team played two games against Sedbergh
in a home and home series. In the first game at home we were defeated
96-72. Our batting was very disappointing in the second game. and
we lost 47-16.
The Under 12 team was more of a success. ln its only game against
Sedbergh we put on a fine display, and took the match 56-35. Two

me THE ASHBURIAN
Softball and track and field were introduced into the regular games
program, for the Hrst time this year, one day a week being devoted to
each of these, the rest of our afternoons being left for cricket. This
change worked admirably.
For the first time at Ashbury, a softball team was organized.
Coached by Mr. Sherwood, we played three games against Rockcliffe
Park before going to Montreal, all of which we won decisively. ln our
only games against private schools, we played a double header in
Montreal. The first game was lost only in the bottom of the last inning
when L.C.C. came back to win 13-12. The second game, against
Selwyn House, was not even close, and we were thoroughly beaten.
However, a good time was had by all.
Our thanks to Mr. Sherwood and Mr. Stewart for driving the team
to and from Xlontreal.
Three games against Senior School pick-up teams were held during
the term. He made a good showing against the prefects, and if they
hadn't been able to hit the ball the length of the football Held we would
certainly have won. The story in the game against the track team was
much the same, and their home runs enabled them to beat us approxi-
mately 3O-ZO. On the final night of the year we gained our revenge by
defeating a Middle School team 12-7.
JUNIOR SCHCOL TRACK AND FIELD
More enthusiasm was shown this year over last year's track activities.
With our compulsory sports programme we were able to gain maximum
participation with the entire junior School.
Over a three day, two hour time limit we were fortunate to run
each boy through seven events. During this time many records were
broken, and re-broken to set the image of track and field farther ahead
as a truly competitive sport.
Our young boys are learning the concepts of competition, sports-
manship, success in winning and the agony of defeat. Taking all these
phases in stride will make them better men in the future.

"Hell, hello, Mrs. Osmond," said Mr. Polk in kindly tones, "You
want to know about Paul, don't you? You know, his Latin is so good
he could have prevented the Fall of the Roman Empire by himself."

After a few practice karate blows to the lectern, he began his speech:
"Friends, Canadians, Countrymen, lend me your cheers. I come to

At the end of a long and interesting speech, the parents were invited

THE HALF-BILLION DGLLAR SHOXY
Expo 67, Xlontreal, Canada: A meeting place for twelve million
visitors from over 70 countries.
The theme of Expo is "Klan And His XYorld", shown in a symbol
by Xlontrealer Julien Hebert. When people Hrst saw the Expo symbol,
they thought it looked like a "stylized maypole dance." But now the
design is internationally recognized as the symbol of Expo 67, depicting
brotherhood and friendship - and that's what Expo is all about.
At Expo, the first people to jump at the chance to buy passes to the
hundred and eighty-three day fair were the construction workers.
Now, however, fifty million dollars worth of passes have been sold at
twelve dollars each.
Expo 67 will take place on Ile Ste. Helene in the St. Lawrence River
beside Montreal Island. The site is as big as downtown Toronto, but
a few years ago no bigger than a few city blocks. More rock fill was
used, to expand the island to one thousand acres, than the pharoahs used
on all the pyramids. Expo has so many exhibits that if you spent only
an hour at each one, it would take you about three months to see
lt is expected that most of the fair's visitors will come from within
a six hundred mile radius of Montreal and will arrive by car. To solve
the massive trafiic problem, they've built two vast parking lots near the
two main entrances. Each is about a half-mile long, and together they
will hold twenty-three thousand cars.
No automobiles are allowed on Expo's grounds but you'll never have
to walk more than four hundred yards to find transportation to some
other area on the site.
Every one hundred and thirty-five seconds one of Expo's fully
automated six-car trains leaves the main entrance. Ten minutes later,
after making three stops en route through Expo's main areas, it arrives
at La Ronde amusement park at the other end of the site. The Expo
Express is free, and the system carries thirty thousand passengers per
hour along the three and one half miles of track.
You have to work hard to get lost at Expo. The site is broken
into color-coded areas. If you find yourself standing on a corner
where all the railings, signs, walls, and "anything that doesn't breathe
or walk" are painted red, you turn to the red pages in your official
one-dollar guide book to find exactly where you are.

However, if Alexander, your six-year old, has disappeared, go to
one of the closed-circuit television screens scattered around the site.
In a few minutes you'll see him on the screen, and a message will tell
you exactly where he is.
A hundred and thirty-five acre extension of Ste. Helene is devoted
to the La Ronde Amusement Park. A marina, lakes, park areas, and
a forty acre amusement area are part of the development. Intended for
nothing but fun and relaxation, La Ronde is permanent and will be run
by Montreal after the exposition. lValt Disney had a big hand in the
idea, and gave free help and advice.
The focal point of La Ronde is the two and a half million dollar
Gyratron. This spectacular ride begins in the base of a pyramid twenty-
one stories high. Inside a four seater cabin you whirl up in a simulated
space Hight. After passing through a space station, you shoot out into
the open, and hang one hundred feet above the fair grounds. From
there the cabin plummets into a volcano full of bubbling lava and steam.
At the bottom, just before the seven-minute ride ends, a bug-eyed metal
monster reaches out with mechanical claws and swallows the cabin.
Also among La Ronde's spectacular rides is La Spirole. lt's a tube
of glass that carries forty people at a time in a slow corkscrew motion to
the top of a three hundred foot tower, from where they'll have a full
view of Expo, and then unwinds down.
Seventy countries are contributing pavilions to Expo 67. Among
them, the United States pavilion stands- out in my mind as being the
most spectacular. The biggest building on the site, it is a geodesic dome,
made of a clear plastic that admits light but not heat. The ball-like
pavilion is called a "sky-break bubble" and cost nine million dollars.
From the top of the Canadian Bank of Commerce building Habitat
67 looks like a pile of building blocks along the shoreline of Nlontreal.
But really its a ten million dollar housing project built especially for
lfxpo. The hundred and fifty-eight dwellings are made up of three
hundred and fifty-four precast concrete units. Habitat forms a
pyramid-like shape nine hundred and hfty feet long, three hundred feet
wide, and one hundred and twenty feet high. One enjoyable novelty
of the haphazardly stacked buildings is that your neighbours roof be-
comes your patio-garden. Habitat will probably remain after the fair
as "a classic example of how pleasant it could be to live in an over-
crowded city." i i
From all accounts Fxpo 67 seems to me to be the place to spend a
good portion of my summer holidays.

ever since I was a child I have been interested in space and the planets,
in addition to reading about satellites, I actually saw, when I was eight,
the capsule in which the second astronaut orbited the Iiarth. The second
reason is that the professor at my university has been to the moon, not
once, but several times, and he has sent the Hrst unmanned space vehicle
to jupiter. Right now he is doing research into the problems associated
with living on the moon, and I was very fortunate in being taken on as

HAROLD XYINS AT THE BATTLE OF HASTINGS
Gregory and I were returning from our club meeting. We decided
to take a short-cut through the woods. Gregory saw a large round
metallic object half hidden in the bushes.
IYe looked it over and saw a hatch on top. So we went in to
investigate. We saw dials, clutches, earphones, and a screen.
U'e sat down in the two seats in front of the screen. I turned a dial
under the screen. The screen lighted up, it gave off a soft glow.
Gregory put on the earphones and a picture of a battle showed on
the screen. The battle was fought between men on horseback covered
by chain mail holding a pear shaped shield in one hand and a spear in the
other, and men standing on a hill, covered by chain mail and swinging
Hlt must be the battle of Hastings!" cried Gregory. "I was just
thinking about it! "
"I would like to be there before the battle to warn Harold's men
against running after VVilliam's Hank when it retreated." Gregory
thought it a bad idea but I still put on the earphones and wished to see
what would really happen if I told Harold not to pursue YYilliam's men.
IYhile I was doing this my hand hit a clutch. The machine shook and
jumped. U'hen it stopped we were in England just before the battle
I was overjoyed. I rushed out and ran towards Harold's encamp-
ment even though Gregory called after me. just before I reached
Harold's encampment I realized I had to look like Harold's men, luckily
I found an old chain mail suit on the ground.
I forced my way to the king's tent. I was stopped, but since I said
I had important information for the king they let me speak with him.
I told Harold that I heard IYilliam's plan to draw back his men and
thus to entice I-Iarold's men to run after them. Once out of formation
IYilliam could easily kill them. Harold believed me and told me to
stay with him during the battle. CI think he wanted me under his hand
in case something went wrongj. Harold warned his men. The next
day at the battle of Hastings, Harold's men did not follow IYilliam's
ruse and so, instead of losing the battle, he won it.
It was a glorious battle and I saw it from the time when the first
Norman knight threw up his spear and charged, to the time XYilliam was
killed at the end of the battle.
IYhen the battle was over I ran to where I left the time machine,
but I couldn't find it! Then with a sickening feeling in my stomach I

A Pathetic Parable of Partillg Pi'II'fllCl'5
"What a thing to happen to a gentleman like me," murmured Yassily
Porwich, "sent to Siberia for such a trivial thing as sticking out my
tongue at the Czar."
"Vassily, Yassily, oh my darling, do not desert me." pleaded his
wife Griselda, over and over again, in strains of purest woe.
At this point Vassily, who could stand it no longer, burst into tears,
Hinging himself around the neck of, not his wife, but of the guard who
was escorting him to the salt mines.
This scene was taking place at Zheleznodorozhnyy Cif you do not
believe that there is such a place, look at your nearest map of Russial. at
the railway station. Griselda was saying farewell to her love before
she returned to France, where her mother lived. Yassily, alas, had a
trip to take which would end in Siberia, where he was to join other
unfortunates who had dared to stick out their tongues at the Czar.
The guard, who was fitter to be a nursemaid than a soldier, was
rocking Yassily in his arms, singing Brahm's Lullaby in Russian.
Griselda, distraught with continual lamentations, was ripping out her
golden tresses with inaudible shrieks. Vassily, now himself again was
endeavouring to pick up Griselda's locks, which were falling like
snowflakes in December. CThe next paragraph is not fit for little boys

XYith one swipe of Vassily's brawny arm, he knocked Griselda off
her feet. For fifteen minutes, life was one long kiss.
Griselda, still clutching Yassily, was singing "Hill Ye No Come
Back Again", which was a difficult thing to do, considering that they
were kissing. Griselda's song only went into Yassily's mouth, where
it lost some of its original sound.
Vassily, in reply to Griselda's question, "When will you return?".
was singing, luckily after they had finished the kiss. "It Nlay Be For Years
and It May Be Forever."
Hath anguished sorrow, the couple broke asunder. The guard,

OUR POENI FOR MONDAY MORNING
I don't know what to write
And it's already Sunday night!
I can't write a poem because I am not a poet
And you donlt have to tell me, I already know it.
I decided to write about a kite
XVhich went higher and higher into the night,
Until you couldn't see its Hight,
And my poem too, fled out of sight.
It was a battle to the end,
It drove me right around the bend,
To Find out what on earth to write
In the poem that I wrote to-night.
THIL GREAT ESCAPE
VVe had planned and worked for months. The day was drawing
near. VVe had built a tunnel leading to the adjacent woods. There
were forty-five of us in that German prison camp. VVhen we were
first captured, there had been over a hundred of us, but with the cruelty
and the bad food, you were extremely lucky to survive. Some of us
made some sort of noise while the rest of us hacked away at the tunnel.
XYe each had a separate route to take once we were out of the tunnel,
.lohn Bartly, Henry Ransom and I were going to make for the Swiss
border, 200 miles away. Everything went as planned, and all forty-five
of us got safely out of the tunnel. Henry, john, and I were a good
live miles away from the camp by sunrise. IVe "borrowed" three
bicycles and pedalled along until we came to a small town. XYe got on a
train for Ulm. IYe heard that the alarm was out for us so we got off at
the next stop. It was suicide to continue on the train as all passports
fwe had nonel would be checked. The Danube was only a few miles
away so we decided to try this route to safety. IYe successfully rented
a boat and started upstream. Ifverytliing went line for the first three
days. ln the morning of the fourth day we were challenged by a motor
launch. Vl'e knew our only chance was to outrace them. Shots were
flying at us so john and l lay down while Henry steered. A well aimed
shot came flying at us and we saw llenry fall to the deck. "He's hit in
the temple," said -lohn. "I think he's dead."
THE ASHBURIAN 125
"l'll take the wheel", l shouted. "Get down!" A few minutes
later john said, "XYe'll have to go ashore, it's only a matter of minutes
until they catch us." We made it ashore with them only two hundred
yards behind. IYC set off in a southerly direction not knowing that wc
were only a few miles from the border. XYC plunged recklessly ahead.
XYe stopped for a moment. XYe could faintly hear the Germans behind
us. IYe started running again. IVe were so intent on the ground
ahead of us that we never knew there was anyone near us until we heard
the shot, the shot that finished john. "It's my leg," he groaned. "Go
on by yourself." So that I wouldn't have any doubts about leaving him,
he shot himself. I ran even faster than before, as there was someone
only about thirty-live yards back. I was exhausted so I decided to
stop and fight it out. If I had known that I was only a mile from the
border I might have tried to make it. I selected a tree and quietly hid
behind it. The first pursuer almost stepped on me. I stabbed him.
The other two jumped into my vision almost at the same time. I fired
two shots but only one found its mark. A quick, harmless, shot was
fired at me. I got off another shot and wounded my final pursuer. I
waited for about ten minutes and then quietly walked away. I came to
a town quite soon, much to my surprise and relief. Later I heard that
besides me, sixteen others had escaped. It was not what we had hoped
for, but anything was better than rotting away in a concentration camp.
I HAVE A LITTLE DOG
I have a little dog,
He has the name of Smog,
He always eats like crazy,
And quite often he is hazy.

'Cause he never is a grouch,

To make them eat the rats.
He often plays all day,
Ina Held full of hay,
He tramples about a ton,
Then chases cats one by one.
He often will play dead,

particles. They may be miles apart. but enough of the particles get

All the earth had passed into another one of these clouds. This time
the cloud was extremely dense and overnight the temperature was
lowered forty degrees. As the ice came down from the north new
nuclear powered cities were built underground.
ln my city of Buffalo, there had been no contact with another
city for over a century because a law had been passed, goodness knfsws
why, forbidding a wireless to be used. ln April, my father. two friends,
Len and Norm, and myself had tried to reach a city by radio. We were
caught and exiled from the city. We had to make a 300 mile trip over
the ice to the nearest city, New York, with only two solar-powered
sleds, provisions for a week, two pistols, and four knives.
"At best we can do it in two weeks," my father had said as we left.
"lf there aren't any wild animals to kill we'll never make it."
Five days had passed without incident, and we had covered 125
miles. At 10:00 the sixth morning we saw our first signs of life, animals
charging up the incline.
"XYolves!" cried my father as he stopped his sled. 'cAll of you,
get behind the sleds."
We all had knives, but only Len and my father had pistols. They
poured OLII the lead at the oncoming wolves, but they could not down
all of them before they were upon us.
If any of you have ever struggled with a wolf, l'm sure you can
sympathize with us. Rolling in the snow and jabbing at a biting wolf
is no pleasantry, I can assure you.
Seemingly hours later l managed to pick myself up and shake off
the snow. Bleeding wolves were strewn about the ground as my
companions gilt up. After treating our wounds, my father announced.
"Load some wolves in to the back of the sled. If we can't find any
other game, we'll have to use them as food."
Fortunately, game was found later on that day, for we ran into a
herd of caribou and three were in the sleds that night.
Fifty miles from New York we again didn't have any food. While
we were desperately chasing a stray caribou, l thought I saw a man
disappear over the hill.
"Did Buffalo radio New York that we were coming?" l asked my

food at the city. However, fifteen miles away we saw some figures
on sleds. They arrived, and said they were from New York, and were
going to guide us there.
A few hours later, the good weather finally broke and a snow storm
approached us. just as it came upon us they raced their sleds in front
of ours and opened fire on us. Norm fell under the fire and the rest of
us jumped behind our sleds.
IYithin seconds the fury of the storm increased so that we couldn't
see them. IYe climbed back into the sleds, and pulled the metal covering
over us. The wind gusted, and that was the last I remember.
XYhen I woke up, I was in a bed overlooking a window. Out the
window was a busy street with wheeled vehiclesC?b, people walking,
grassflb, and no snowfllj.
My father came in, and told me we were in Rio de Janeiro. A
plane had seen us and picked us up.
"But what about the New Yorkers?" I asked.
"They disappeared in the snow."
I smiled and sank back in the bed, looking out the window. XYe
had accomplished our original goal, achieving contact with another city.
Soon the ice would disappear, and Buffalo would again be a part of the

A TRIP IYITH SIR JOHN A. XIACDONALD
If Sir joan A. Macdonald, our Hrst Prime Minister, could return
to Canada in 1967, he would not believe that it is the Canada he knew
100 years ago.
In 1867 there were only -1 provinces, which were Ontario, Quebec,
New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Today there are ten which stretch
from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.
Our transportation would surprise him. We have two railways
which run from coast to coast. Nlost of our roads are paved and many
are -1 and even 6 lane super highways. Imagine his amazement at our
fast. comfortable cars. I think he would be astonished that he could
travel from coast to coast in 55 hours by jet aircraft. I would like to
travel with him from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island, and see his
face when he sees the many cities, large and small, that have grown across
our country over the past 100 years.
I would also like to be with him when he visits our modern homes
equipped with electricity, oil, gas, or electric heating, hot water, re-
frigerators, air conditioning, electric stoves, radios, black and white and
colour television and telephones.
It would most certainly surprise him to learn that Canada's wealth
consists not only of furs and lumber, but also of uranium, copper, nickel,
gold and oil.
I wonder how he would feel about our new flag.
Canada is 100 years old and I am only 10. I am looking forward to
seeing most of the changes in Canada's next 100 years. There are some
things in Canada that have not changed in the last 100 years and will
not change in the next 100 years. These are the Atlantic and Pacihc
Oceans, which have given Canada her motto, "From Sea to Sea", her
mighty rivers, and her majestic mountains.
