The School closed on Saturday. June 12th. The Closing Ceremonies took
a somewhat different form from that followed in previous years in that the
Leaving Service and the Prize Giving were preceded, in the morning, by the
Ceremonial Cadet Parade, the cadets having returned the previous day from
Camp Petawawa. Details of the ceremonies and an account of the activities
at Camp Petawawa appear later in this journal.
At the Prize Giving the Headmaster announced the award of Ontario
Scholarships to Steven Whitwill, Stephen Went. Robert Halupka and Charles
Schofield. All members of Grade 13 had received their Secondary School
Honour Graduation Diploma.
The Stephen Clifford Memorial Prize was presented for the first time by
Mr. John Clifford to the boy in the Junior School who had won most points
for his house. This prize has been given by Mr. and Mrs. John Clifford in
memory of their son. Stephen, who was a Monitor in Grade 8 in 1969-70.
Wfe are grateful to the E. R. Fisher Co. Ltd. for the donation of a Bursary.
There have been several developments on the academic side. The academic
Staff has inaugurated a Scholarship. The decision of the provincial Depart-
ment of Education to change the requirements for Grade 13 as of September
1971 gave the School the opportunity to remodel its curriculum. The range
of subjects for Grade 13 has been increased and these subjects set in such a
way that almost any combination of them can be accommodated. Furthermore,
the curricula for Grades 9 to 12 have been broadened, and the School now
offers. in addition to all the previous subjects, courses in German, the three
Sciences fon a much wider scalej, Geology and Commerce, with several
alternatives in each grade. so that the boys may take courses suited to both
their future needs and present intellectual interests and abilities.
Owing to increased numbers of students and new course requirements, two
temporary classrooms are being added for use until new plans permit more
In September Mr. Marland and Mr. ,Iosselyn took a party of over thirty
boys from both the Senior and Junior Schools on a highly successful visit to
Upper Canada Village.
On 24-th September Mr. George Vincent visited the School to give an
illustrated lecture on South America. Mr. Vincent was wartime Head of the
Canadian section of the British Ministry of Information and, later, Informa-
tion Adviser to the British High Commissioner in Canada.
As part of the History programme for Grades 12 and 13, speakers from
embassies in Ottawa were invited to address the classes and answer questions.
Many interesting and often heated discussions followed. The following em-
bassies sent representatives: the People's Republic of China. West Germany,
India, South Africa. the United Arab Republic. the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R.
In addition we also entertained speakers from Carleton University. the United
Nations Association, the Department of Indian Affairs and the Department
of External Affairs.
The School received a brief but welcome visit from the Canadian Centen-
nial Choir under the direction of Mr. Nicholas Goldschmidtg Mr. Geoffrey
Thomson was the accompanist.
On the last Sunday and Monday of the Fall term the two traditional Carol
Services were held - one for the School and one for visitors: both were very
well attended. Members of the College community read the nine lessons and
the Choir gave a good account of itself under the direction of Mr. Geoffrey
On the last day of the Winter term we repeated the Winter Sports Day
introduced two years ago. Some four bus-loads of boys went to various loca-
tions: Camp Fortune and Mont Ste. Marie for skiing and to the Y.M.C.A.
centre for tobogganing. The day concluded with the Annual Sports Dinner
held at the School, at which the guest speaker was Mr. Harry Kerrison,
executive director of the Canadian Track and Field Association. A list of
Athletic Awards appears in the Sports section of the Ashburian.
On 12th May Ashbury held a Visitor's Day. Parents and other guests were
able to see the School in action, both in the classroom and on the games field.
This was well attended and can be accounted a great success.
After the final performance of the Ashbury-Elmwood production of "The
Pirates of Penzance" the cast, musical and stage staff were entertained by
Dr. and Mrs. Conway, whom we thank for their hospitality.
During the year several visits were made to the Theatre of the National
Arts Centre, an account of these visits appears later in these pages.
Mr. V. J. Burczak, Mr. C. J. Inns, Mr. F. T. Jones, Mr. G. J. McGuire and
Mr. B. Wallin joined the academic staff in September. Mr. F. K. Graham has
been assisting with the Chapel music and giving individual music tuition.
In September 1971 Mr. G. W. Thomson relinquishes the Chapel and Class
Music to Mr. Grahamg Mr. Thomson will continue as Housemaster of Con-
naught Houseg he will also continue to teach French and will take on the
additional commitments of Music and Drama at Elmwood.
For the Winter and Spring terms Simon Peacock, late of Tonbridge School.
England, was attached to the School as tutor in the Science and Mathematics
Departments. We hope that he enjoyed his stay with us, thank him for his
effective help and wish him well in the future.
No member of the academic staff is leaving this summer, but regretfully
we lose Mrs. D. Gwynne-Timothy, Senior School Matron since September
1968, who leaves us with our best wishes for her happiness on the occasion
of her marriage to Mr. William Thompson. An appreciation of Mrs. Gwynne-
Timothy appears on a later page.
Ashbury College is now clearly identified by a sign hanging in front of the
School on Mariposa Avenue. This sign is the gift of the Graduating Class of
MRS. D. GWYNNE-TIMOTHY
"She's as Canadian as maple syrup!"
This was the description given of Mrs. Gwynne-Timothy in reply to one of
several questions asked by a very interested party when her appointment as
Senior School Matron was announced just over three years ago. The description
was entirely accurate. despite her long and happy marriage to an Englishman!
She came to us thoroughly well versed in the complex pattern of boarding-
school life. her late husband having been a member of the staff of T.C.S. for
a great many years. The knowledge and wisdom she gained with him there
meant that she knew better than to rush her fences. and she eased herself into
the job here with tact and reticence. As a result of this, it may have taken
some of us a little while to get to know her and appreciate her full worth -
but it was only a very little while.
The personal needs of boys and resident staff were her constant concern,
and nothing was too much trouble for her - provided land rightly sol she
was approached with due courtesy and consideration. She never seemed to
need rest or sleep: she might have been up half the night taking a boy to
hospital or tending a sick housemaster. and yet be at the routine chores of
linen room supervision at 7.30 a.m.. as fresh as if she'd had the statutory
eight hours. She chose her staff well -- and, having chosen them, she kept
them: they showed no inclination to leave - what they did show fand hope-
fully will go on showing, was loyalty and zeal comparable with Mrs. G-T's
Now. after three years of selfless service. she leaves us to marry again.
When the news was made public. we were unanimous in our joy and happiness
for her - but we suddenly realised just how much she had done for us in her
unassuming way. and how much we were going to miss her.
By the time these words appear in print. she will have been Mrs. Bill
Thompson for some time. and perhaps the most fitting way of ending this
little tribute would be to repeat what a namesake of Bill's said at the Con-
naught House dinner in June: "If she looks after him as well as she's looked
after us. he'll be spoilt to death!"
CONNAUGHT HOUSE NOTES
What a fast year the 1970-71 school year was! In fact I wouldn't be
surprised if we'd skipped a few months somewhere. I guess the fact that it
did go by so quickly was an indication that it was a good year.
Never before have competitions been so hard fought and so evenly matched.
In fact whenever the houses locked heads. the margin of victory proved to be
very slim indeed.
Two excellent examples of this great competitive spirit were the swim meet
where Woollcombe beat us by a very small margin la mere two pointsj, and
a house softball game where our last innings come-back was too much for
Woollcombe to handle ffinal score 14-131.
On the School sports field Connaught House boys were very active. We
were well represented on the lst Football by Anapolsky l. Wilansky. Luciani
I. Smith I. Graham. Stiles. Boyd. Charron. Clubb. Heaney. Macdonald.
Morrison and Schofield. with Stratton as manager. W-'ebster. Cunningham,
Croal. Pimm. Pryde. Scott. Tanos and Ross played 2nd Football.
The School's very successful lst Soccer Team consisted mainly of Con-
naught talent - Hallett fcaptainj, Harlley fvice-captainj, Went, Iokinen,
Halupka, Barnes, Luciani II, Schwarzmann, Bennett, Macleod II and Yaxley
II, with McLellan as the reliable manager. Lackie fcaptainj, Anapolsky II,
Mangifesta, Dickson, Cahn, Jelenick, Johnston and Wilson made up most of
the second team.
In the winter it was hockey, with Hallett fcaptainj, Smith I, Graham,
Boyd, Morrison, Pimm, Pryde and Yaxley II representing Connaught on the
lst team. On the seconds we had the Anapolsky brothers, Luciani II,
fcaptainj, Webster, Veilleux, Mangifesta, Cahn, Croal, Jelenick, Johnston,
Scott - and the worthy manager, Bonneau.
We provided the Ski Team with Stratton fcaptainj, Lackie and Hart,
while three-quarters of the Curling Team was from Connaught -- Schofield
fcaptainj, Kenny fvice-captainj and Yaxley I.
The Swirmning Team had five Connaught members - Wilansky, Whitwill,
Dickson, Schwarzmann and Harcourt.
In the Spring Term the only activity was the track and field finter-schoolj
in which Connaught members did very well. Harlley was captain, and the
others were Kenny, Morrison, Wilansky, Luciani I, Hallett, Barnes,
McTaggart, Kerr, Pimm and Scott.
Off the sports field Connaught was also tops. The Gilbert and Sullivan
company which put on "The Pirates of Penzance" was recruited almost solely
from Connaught House. The five leads were all Connaught - Hallett.
Graham, Macdonald, Stratton and Power. We provided most of the pirate-
like fellows in the chorus - Stiles, Kenny, MacDermot, Haythornthwaite.
Pearce and Jelenick. The back-stage crew was Wilansky, Luciani II, Power
and Stoddard. As usual, the whole venture was under the direction of our
The strong voice of Aboud was heard no more in the Choir after Christ-
mas, and was sorely missed by the other members - Hallett, Harlley. Stratton,
Dickson, Macdonald, Haythornthwaite and MacDermot, The Chapel Com-
mittee contained Stiles fpresidentj, Hallett, Harlley and Stratton. Stratton
was also head of the Servers' Guild, ably abetted by Cahn.
Our representatives on the Dance Committee at the beginning of the year
were Hallett, Harlley and Wilansky. However, the most honourable mention
goes to Connell, who single-handedly organized the best Graduation Dance
Ashbury has ever had.
Connaught House boys monopolized the Cadet officer and N.C.0. positions.
with Hallett as Major, Graham as Captain and Luciani I as C.S.M. The
lieutenants were Stiles and Morrison, and the sergeants were Wilansky fstaff-
sergeantj, Halupka, Boyd and Clubb. Went was sergeant of the Honour
Guard, and the Guard corporals included McTaggart, Lackie, Croal, Jelenick
and Ross. Our representatives in the Band were Harlley fwho received the
award for the best handsmanj, Power flead drummerj, Anapolsky I,
MacDermot, Wright and Bennett.
The Public Speaking contest was won by Graham, and Boyd came second.
Tanos took second place for the intermediates.
A semi-quiet atmosphere was sometimes achieved by Hallett fl'lead of
Housej and the other prefects - Graham, Stiles, Went and Harlley. The
Boom Captains were Halupka fseniorj, Stratton, Kenny, Jokinen, Luciani l
and Wilansky. Things were usually more quiet under the all-seeing eye of
Mr. Thomson, our Housemaster! We welcomed Mr. McGuire as Boarder
House Tutor, and Mr. Niles continued to look after the Day Boys.
Well, this year will always be remembered by all members of the House.
Certainly it was a very tumultuous year. but Connaught has weathered the
storm and, if anything. come out stronger. It was a young house and its youth
and vitality showed up time and time again. The atmosphere which existed
was really something else. mainly because the House was so much closer than
it had ever been before. There was much more rapport between those on top
and those lower down the ladder. and this continually showed through.
At the end of the first school year of this new decade. Connaught House
looks in great shape. If it can continue on its present path of tremendously
spirited participation in all activities. its future is assured.
Sincerest thanks. I think from everybody. go to Mr. Thomson for a lead
and for participation and interest in so many aspects of school life.
A final word of encouragement - "Good Luck!"
D. R. Hallett
Closing Day this year was more than usually poignant for Connaught for
at least for its Housemasterlj because we said farewell to so many fine people
who have been with the House since its inception four years ago. Next year
there will only be two for. at most. threej of these "founder-members" left.
To Dell Hallett. and all other leavers who have stayed the four-year course.
my very warmest thanks for all they have done and especially for the stan-
dards they have bequeathed us. which have resulted in the House's present
healthy condition. Fortunately those who will lead us next year are well
versed in these standards. and we face the future with confidence.
The Housemaster of Connaught continued to act as music critic for The
Ottawa Journal. He conducted the Canadian Centennial Choir in its Christmas
concert at the National Arts Centre. and the Ottawa Civic Symphony Orchestra
in its winter concert at the High School of Commerce. He has also appeared
on radio Cas a member of a panel of music critics in CBO's "The Music
Scenevj and on television fin a service relayed from Trinity Anglican Church,
where he is Organist and Choir Directorj.
WOOLLCOMBE HOUSE NOTES
Woollcombe House began the year under the direction of Mr. Joyce. Mr.
C. J. Inns. who came to Ashbury this year from England. was appointed
House Master at the beginning of the Winter term. Mr. H. Penton once again
filled the post of Master in Charge of Woollcombe House Day Boys. The
prefects were Charles Maclaren-Head of House-Mike Kelly. Marc Duguay
and Dave McNeil. Head of Day Boys. The Room Captains were Lennie
Rosenhek. Roger Ramsay. Kostas Himsa. ,lay Ronalds and Ken Hansen.
This year in the inter-house games we greatly improved our record. ln
soccer. hockey and curling we shared the honours in each sport. each House
winning one game. ln a very close and exciting swimming competition
Woollcombe defeated Connaught in the last event.
At the Sports Dinner in March. Bruce Wfeiner was presented with the
trophy for the Best Linesman in the football team and Mike Kelly was judged
the Most Valuable Player. ln skiing. Jim Cuttle was the Most Valuable Skier
and Tony Seay was the best Cross-Country Skier. Mike Kelly was also the
Most Valuable Player in the Hockey.
For the Cadet Inspection this year Jim Beqaj was Lieutenant Number 3
platoong Mike Kelly was Band Major and Charles Maclaren was Lieutenant
of the Guard of Honour.
As the term draws to a close the last gathering of "the House" will be on
June 11th at the Chateau Laurier Hotel for the House Dinner. To show our
appreciation for a most rewarding year under the direction of Mr. Inns, one
final Woollcombe House cheer:
Give me an "Iwi
Give me an "Nfl
Give me an .
Give me an S !
What have we got? "INNS".

Because in a small way this year's Chapel life was a little less Chaplain-
dominated and a little more student-oriented I have asked students to con-
tribute to this year's account of Chapel activities. Sandy Stiles, who headed
our Chapel Committee, and Bill Stratton, our Chief Server, each have some-
thing to say. And so do I - Thank you, Sandy and Bill, for the excellent
way you each efficiently and cheerfully filled the important positions entrusted
to you. We had a great Confirmation group this year about which Adrian
My own comments are mainly by way of expressing gratitude. The Head-
master deserves thanks for his support of the Chapel. An example of this
support is reflected in the 55610.00 we were able to give away. By making
other arrangements for the maintenance of the Chapel. Mr. Joyce has made
it possible for every cent of money put on the Chapel collection plate to be
used for charitable purposes.
As ever Mr. Thomson rightly receives our appreciation for the skilful way
he gets the best out of our organ and our choir. The congregational singing
was greatly improved by the end of the year and that is a real accomplishment.
Prefects, your dependability in the reading of lessons and other duties does
not go unnoticed. We thank you as we thank the Servers and Coxnmittee
There are many individuals who deserve bouquets. For example there is
Mrs. Gwynne-Timothy, who took such good care of the Chapel, and Mr.
Humphreys, who produced the words for "Jesus Christ - Superstar". Would
the many persons who worked so hard in the Chapel please accept the thanks
of the entire College.
The biggest thanks of all is my personal thanks to the students for letting
me be Chaplain. I very much treasure your friendship and am grateful that
you treat me as a person -- with all the ups and downs involved. I believe
that Ashbury College has grown a little as a community of persons who
respect each other and I'm glad to be part of it.
Here's something to think about: "One's friends are that part of the human
race with which one can be human" -- George Santayana.
And don't forget what Jesus said - "I call you my friends".

This year has been one of the most active for the Ashbury College Servers'
Guild. Our duties varied from taking part in pre-service seminars to helping
to put up loudspeakers in the Chapel for recordings.
This was the first year that a 10 a.m. Holy Eucharist was held every
Sunday. A thirty-minute seminar was held before each service during the
first two terms. During one service. Mr. Green arranged a re-enactment of the
Last Supper for the benefit of the Confirmation Class. On another occasion.
during Easter. a large cross was suspended from the ceiling to help us all
understand more fully the meaning of Christ's Crucifixion. Each service was
conducted with a modern version of the Liturgy. which shortened the service
Evensong was held each Sunday at 7.15 p.m. Lessons were read by the
Headmaster and Prefects. We had many interesting speakers during the
course of the year. their topics ranging from world affairs to responsibility.
Two services were devoted entirely to the recording of Gflesus Christ - Super-
star". and there were several folk services. all of which offered a welcome
change from the format of the regular services.
Two morning services were held every Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday
at 8.30 and 8.45. Lessons were read by the Prefects and Monitors. Mr. Green
put us in the mood of the day with a prayer and a word of wisdom. The Friday
morning services were devoted to the improvement of the student voice and
an increased knowledge of hymns. The so-called sing-alongs were directed by
Mr. Thomson. who by the end of the year had us all singing several new

helped me serve throughout the year. Special thanks to Mrs. Gwynne-Timothy.
who arranged the sacred vessels and other furnishings for the services. I
sincerely hope that those members of the student body who have helped in the
Chapel this year will continue to do so in the future and keep the Ashbury
College Servers' Guild well-organized and active.

THE CHAPEL COMMITTEE
The Chaplain. the Reverend E. E. Green, has this year done much to
improve our Sunday services, which have until recently been somewhat
routine. He has changed the order of service occasionally and invited interest-
ing speakers. who were more often than not short and to the point, affecting
Sometimes seven or eight boys participated in the service by reading short
dialogues. so furthering our interest and involvement. Towards the end of the
last term the recording of "Jesus Christ - Superstar" was playedg this, 1 feel,
was most successful in terms of holding the congregation's attention and I
would like to thank the Chaplain for making that possible. Also, Mr. Thomson
has added some new hymns, which again has helped the service to become

Mr. Green has always been friendly and helpful, which l'm sure has been
much appreciated. My hearty thanks to him. and special thanks to my col-
leagues of the Chapel Committee who have assisted me in my position as

pation on those Sunday evenings. Best luck to all.

The Confirmation Service was held in the Ashbury College Chapel on the
21st of February. 1971. The Chaplain presented 15 of us to Bishop Robinson
of the Diocese of Ottawa. There were nine from Ashbury and six from Elrn-
wood. Our First Communion involved three successive Sundays in March.
We all sincerely thank Mr. Green for preparing and presenting us for the
g'Laying on of Hands".

ASHBURY COLLEGE LADIES' GUILD
It is a privilege for one to outline for you the activities and achievements
of the Ladies' Guild for 1970f71.
From the Treasurer's Report we have learned that financially it has been
a very successful year. A large percentage of Mothers are paid up members
and the receipts from our two major projects, the Clothing Sale and the
Pyramid Luncheons, are in excess of One Thousand dollars fS1.000J. We
were the recipients of some generous donations for which we are sincerely
grateful. Seventy-eight packages of Hasti-Notes were sold, a large percentage
being purchased by out-of-town Mothers.
The usual two meetings were held. Mr. Joyce and Mr. Sherwood addressed
our Fall Meeting, and at the Spring Meeting Mr. Byford and Mr. Beedell
spoke to us on the Science Programme at Ashbury. Both Meetings were well
attended with some eighty members present at each meeting. Following the
meetings luncheon was served, courtesy of the College.
At the June Closing, the Guild donated Book Prizes in the amount of
Nineteen dollars and ten cents fS19.10J, and Merit Prizes of Fifty dollars
135501 each for Grades 9 to 13 inclusive. The latter prizes, which replace the
Bursary formerly given, are awarded on the basis of all-round effort and have
been most enthusiastically received by both Students and Staff.
Six cottas and a red cassock were purchased for the Choir and Mr. Thomson
was given Fifty dollars fS50J to take the Choir on an Outing. The Christmas
Carol Service is surely one of the highlights of the school year and the Guild
was honoured as your President was asked to take part in it.
At the Fall Meeting, the members voted to cash a Bond for Five Hundred
dollars fS500J when it matured in January and to use the money to redecorate
and furnish the Infirmary Sitting Room. The room doubles as a sitting room
where Parents may meet privately with their sonfsj when visiting them at
School. The work was completed in time for the Spring Meeting and the
members were delighted with the results. The Infirmary itself was brightened
with new bedspreads and curtains and new furniture was purchased for the
Prefects' Common Room.
The television set in the Junior Common Room was repaired and games
were purchased for the Junior boarders. The Junior boys having the tidiest
room were taken to a movie at our expense.
At the request of Mr. Joyce that we discontinue our support in furnishing
the Common Rooms. because of wilful damage to newly purchased furniture
and the added responsibility it places on the Boys and the Staff. the members
at the Spring Meeting voted to abolish the Common Rooms' Fund and to
establish in its place the Project Fund. ln accordance with this. instead of
furnishing the Commons Rooms. the Meeting voted to purchase much needed
equipment for the Science Department. A cheque for Twelve Hundred dollars
fS1,200J was presented to Mr. Joyce to purchase equipment that is required
to update the Science Programme. namely. Microscopes and Specimens for
the Biology Department. nine Optical Benches and other pieces of electrical
equipment for the Physics Department and a Ph Meter for the Chemistry
Lastly the Guild Executive was delighted and thoroughly enjoyed co-oper-
ating with the Old Boys' Association at the time of their Reunion in October.
My Executive consisted ofz- ,
Honorary President - Mrs
W. A. Joyce
Past President - Mrs B. H. Chick
Vice-President - Mrs D. G. Harcourt
Secretary - Mrs W. A. Scott
Treasurer - Mrs T. L. Bates
Assistant Treasurer - Mrs E. D. Boyd

Montreal Representative - Mrs. P. H. Davies
In closing I would like you to know how much I have enjoyed being your
President for the past year. It has been a pleasure and an honour to serve
this fine School. My most sincere thanks to all the Executive for their co-
operation and for fulfilling their duties so capably. I would also like to thank
Mr. Joyce and Mr. Sherwood who have assisted us in every possible way. Our
gratitude is also extended to all the members of the Staff., with special thanks
to the Office Staff.
My sincere best wishes to my successor, Mrs. Harcourt. and her Executive.
I am sure that they will enjoy the same co-operation and enthusiasm that I

THE SOUTHAM LIBRARY
The Library has had a good year, perhaps its best so far, with all kinds of
activities taking place. It is a far ery from the sepulchral atmosphere of the
average public library, but we are fortunate in that our small number permits
us to indulge in a freer, less restrained atmosphere than that which is neces-
sary when larger groups are involved. Nevertheless, in spite of the relaxed
appearance, consideration is given to those desiring quiet and, with few
exceptions. it has been possible to revert to subdued tones whenever requested.
This highlights tolerance, and a willingness amongst the more exuberant to
co-operate with their fellow students.
Perhaps because of a less rigid attitude, the Library has become more pop-
ular. More people are finding their way there and certainly much greater
use is being made of the books. and the variety of magazines must surely
satisfy most tastes!
Mention should be made of the successful stamp club held in the Library
each Thursday throughout the Fall and Winter terms. A tremendous enthu-
siasm was evident. and more than one onlooker became an avid collector long
before the Spring term and the better weather saw other activities replace
this indoor attraction.
The Junior School newspaper found the Library tables useful when finally
putting the paper together, and this was done in a very business-like fashion,
with an efficiency which did them credit.
A large stock of magazines has accumulated, and these, mostly, are reserved
for those wishing to "cut out" for various projects - very popular with
Once again many fine donations have been received, and we extend our
thanks to all those listed below. Mr. W. J. R. Wilson deserves special mention
and thanks for his continued support with regular monthly donations of books.
An organization of Old Boys and Friends of Ashbury College in the United
States contributed funds to the Library, and a set of Colliers Student Encyclo-
paedia was purchased as a lasting reminder of a very generous gift. We would
like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and thanks to the
The librarians have worked willingly and well throughout the year, and I
extend my grateful thanks to them all.

6'This I believe . . ." was the 1971 theme of the Optimist International
Oratorical Contest. Ashbury entered Hugh Christie, Robert Pimm and Mat-
thew Bowlinson in the local contest sponsored by the Ottawa Optimist Club.
Each of the boys did exceedingly well with Matthew winning the second
place trophy. The 1972 theme is "Our Challenge - Involvement". Ashbury
might well consider involvement in public speaking contests as a challenge
for next year. The Optimist sponsored venture starts with local district com-
petitions and ends with North American finals.
David Heaney and Stephen Stirling entered the Ottawa district public
speaking contest sponsored by the Ontario Public School Trustee Association
and the Ontario Hydro. In the prepared speech section David came second
and in the impromptu section Stephen came first. Stephen went on to win the
zone final. In Toronto at the Ontario finals he competed with high school
students from all over the province. Hydro arranged a tour at Niagara Falls
and a banquet at Toronto's King Edward Hotel for all contestants. It was an
enjoyable and worthwhile effort.
In the School itself we had one of our best Public Speaking contests ever.
In the Senior competition Jeffrey Graham won the Gary Horning Memorial
Prize over Brian Boyd, Norman Clubb and Sean Power. Intermediate con-
testants were Hugh Christie, Stuart Jelenick, Nicholas Polk, Matthew
Rowlinson and Stephen Tanos. Matthew emerged as winner of the Ross
McMaster Prize. Judges Leslie Barnes, James Barnett and John Charnell were
very impressed by the high standards exhibited by all participants.
The senior contestants mainly focused on life at Ashbury for their speeches.
A good deal of sensitive awareness and mature judgement was shown in the
constructive criticism they offered. Jeff Graham brought the assembly to its
feet in thunderous applause. Nothing could have better demonstrated the
power of the orator and the validity of stressing public speaking in Ashbury.
The School in large and small numbers made a total of twelve trips to the
theatre, eleven of those to the National Arts Centre. The musical, "Half a
Sixpence", staged at Lasalle Academy by The Ottawa Little Theatre, was
atended by a small group in the latter half of the Winter term. A light
musical comedy which enjoyed some success on Broadway, "Half a Sixpence"
amused and entertained those who went. A larger group was organized to
attend The Ottawa Little Theatre's production of Noel C0ward's "Hay Fever"
presented in the Theatre of the NAC. Both the lyrics and action of this forty
year old comedy delighted the youthful but not undemanding audience of
Ashbury students. This particular production served to raise funds for the
Ottawa Little Theatre, which was experiencing financial difficulties as the
result of the destruction by fire of its long-time stamping grounds on King
The Theatre of the NAC was where the majority of the School's excursions
headed. The Stratford National Theatre of Canada presented 'sTartuffe" and
4'Cymbeline" in the Fall, and "The Duchess of Malfi" and "Much Ado About
Nothing" in the Winter. Both "Cymbeline" and "The Duchess of Malfi"
strained, at times, the credulity of a generation used to the exposition of
stark realism on film and to relying on the subtleties of expression which can
be caught only by the camera. The Elizabcthans relied almost exclusively on
words to communicate feeling, and one's involvement with what was happen-
ing on stage decreased as the evening lengthened. In fact both productions
were close to three and a half hours long and, if drowsiness was not experienced
close to the end of each, certainly one's powers of concentration had suffered
a significant decline. Nevertheless, a large group witnessed both productions
and were unanimous in realizing the importance of experiencing Elizabethan
theatre even though it wasn't at its best. l understand that "Tartuffe" and
"Much Ado About Nothing" were more successful.
The rendering of Ibsen's "Enemy of the People" by the St. Lawrence
Centre of the Arts was an unqualified successg not only because it dealt with
the current issue of pollution, but also because of superb acting and direction.
The setting was a small town in Saskatchewan and the time was 'now'. Even
so the essence of lbsen's insight remained intact. A man who holds views that
run contrary to the mainstream of opinion struggles to express these views
and have them acted upon, because he strongly believes he is right. But he
and his views are unacceptable to the community because both assault the
self-interests of too many factions. The presentation of this theme was
The bilingual members of the School went to see productions of Moliere's
"Le Misanthropen and Camus' "Caligula". Mr. Glover and Mr. Inns of the
French Department reported that both were received with enthusiasm and
interest by those attending. lt is heartening to think that the School is in a
position to take advantage of these NAC French-language productions.
The Charlottetown Festival Company arrived at the NAC Opera House in
the Fall to perform "Anne of Green Gables" and "Private Turveyis War".
The Junior School and grade Nines went to the former and discovered first
hand why it was a 'hit'. Most of the remainder of the School saw "Private
Turvey's War". It moved quickly and was frequently amusing, though I was
disappointed that I didn't opt to see "Anne of Green Gables". The general
opinion suggests that it was the better of the two.
Last, but not least by any means, a large group enjoyed the 1970 production
of "Love and Maple Syrup". A gathering of songs and poems by Canadians
was performed with gusto by a talented group of six. l was delighted to see
that a poem by an old school friend of mine. Pierre Coupey, was included in
the program. No doubt one or two members of the Ashbury audiences will
receive credits one day for a similar achievement. If the majority of them
don't reach such a pinnacle of artistic success, after this year's exposure to
the theatre, they will unquestionably form knowledgeable and interested
audiences of the future. Thanks for this is entirely due to Mr. Peter Josselyn,
Head of the English Department. His enthusiasm for the theatre has commun-
icated itself to the whole of the student body. I speak for staff and students
when I extend thanks for his untiring organizational efforts and his inspi-
THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE AT ELMWOOD
For the fifth year in succession Ashbury joined forces with Elmwood to
present a Gilbert and Sullivan opera - this time "The Pirates of Penzance".
Although this is one of the shorter Savoy operas, it poses problems to an
amateur company. There is very little spoken dialogue, much of the story is
told through recitative and arioso, and it is essential that every point should
get across clearly. lt is also one of the best known and frequently performed
of all comic operas, consequently every production runs far more risk of
comparison with other productions.
It is pleasant to be able to report that the Ashbury-Elmwood team solved
these problems successfully. We were able to follow the story with no trouble,
and the production did not have to fear comparison with others. Indeed, one
member of the audience, who has had much to do with both amateur and
professional theatre, was heard to say that this was the best school presentation
of Gilbert and Sullivan she had ever seen.
It was certainly far and away the best of the five which this company has
mounted. It had pace, clarity, good movement and grouping, and mainly
excellent performances in the leading roles. It is, however, time that Mr.
Geoffrey Thomson discovered some new dance steps, or looked for a profes-
Of the principals, pride of place must be given to the hero and heroine -
Dell Hallett and Jacqueline Hurd. They have both had plenty of experience
in past productions, and this obviously paid dividends. There was no gauche-
ness or embarrassment in their love scenes, and they both acted with
sincerity, conviction and assurance. Jacqueline Hurd's singing voice is small,
but she uses it musically and intelligently, and she shows a promising com-
mand of coloratura technique - a technique which is called for pretty often
in this part.
Dell Hallett showed that he is a rare phenomenon among teen-agers for
adults, for that matterj - a natural tenor. He encompassed his high notes
easily and with no sign of strain or effort, his enunciation was excellent, and
he caught to perfection all the many and varied moods of his immensely
Both these two show very real promise. We regret that this was their fare-
well appearance in Rockcliffe Park, and it is to be hoped that they will lose
no opportunity of gaining further musical and dramatic experience, indeed,
they ought to study singing seriously.
But perhaps the finest all-round performance of the evening came from
Jennifer Chance as Ruth - Gilbert's usual old maid. unloved and on the
shelf. Her facial expressions and sense of timing were superb. particularly in
the long duet with Frederick, when he accuses her of deception. Jennifer
Chance is another who will be a great loss to the company. and who should
not let her talents go to waste.
There were two very promising debuts. The first was Sean Power as the
Sergeant of Police. He is a natural clown: he tended to overdo the buffoonery
at times. but it is far easier for a producer to curb excesses than to get blood
out of a stone! Sean Power is no stone, and we look forward to further
manifestations of his great gift for comedy.
The other auspicious debut was Jeffrey Craham's Pirate King. He had good
presence, and was highly successful in striking the necessary balance between
the character's sham blustering and innate pleasantncss. llc sang vigorously
falthough alarmingly sharp at timcslj. and infected everyone with his own
huge enjoyment of the whole thing.
It was a pity that John Macdonald. another seasoned veteran of these
affairs. should have found himself miscast in his final appearance. He has
done excellent work in past productions in the "nice boy" type of part. but
the "nice boy" characteristic won't do for the Major-General. and he seemed
nervous and ill at ease - particularly in the famous land extremely difficultj
patter song. Even so. his past achievements mean that he is another who will
be much missed in the future.
In smaller parts Jane Ginsberg. Jane Hampson. Ingrid Sorensen and Bill
Stratton all acquitted themselves well.
The three factions of the chorus were all good in their various ways. The
Ashbury boys made splendid pirates. and some of the lechcrous glee displayed
by the younger ones. when told that they could help themselves to the Major-
General's daughters. was so convincingly natural that one wonders if the
Grade Nine curriculum needs careful scrutiny! The policemen were por-
trayed ably fand aptlylj by Ashbury masters. The girls looked as charming
as always. but seemed just a little more inhibited than some of their prede-
cessorsg they were less successful than the boys in the vital job of reacting to
dramatic situations and staying in character. and their singing. although
pretty and accurate. was somewhat muted.
The sets were adequate. but the lighting was poor. Costumes were good.
and make-up was better than ever before.
Mrs. Lorna Harwood-Jones was a tower of strength at the piano. and was
always ready to save musical situations on the stage which threatened to
become critical: fortunately she did not have to render this all-important
service very often.
Mr. Geoffrey Thomson. Producer and Musical Director. is to be congrat-
ulated on his firm musical and dramatic command. without which this
production could not have reached so high a standard.

The Cadet Corps took on a new look this year with the emphasis being
taken off drill and placed on a varied program of activities. During the winter
term cadets were able to choose from a number of groups, including orien-
teering, first aid and canoe-building. This change from the regular routine
was well received.
During the first term two groups of 20 and then 50 students. composed
partly of girls from Elmwood. went on week-end camping trips to the wilds
of the Gatineau. This was just a prelude to the major cadet activity of the
year: an excursion of the whole School, including Mr. Joyce, to Camp
Petawawa during the last three days of the year. The trip was designed to
introduce the School to outdoor camping. and it was highlighted by orien-
teering competitions. rides in tanks, and combat rations. ln spite of the
inevitable grumbles, there is no doubt that this was a worthwhile experience.
On Closing Day the Corps was inspected by Major-General G. H. Spencer,
0.B.E., C.D. The inspection was much shorter than in previous years, in
keeping with the shift away from drill. Awards were presented as follows:
Most Promising Recruit - Cadet Corporal G. A. McTaggart.
Most Conscientious N.C.O. - Cadet Sergeant S. M. Wilansky.
Best Bandsman - Cadet G. Harlley.
Best Officer - Cadet Lieutenant C. H. Maclaren.
C.0.'s Award - Cadet Major D. R. Hallett.
Best Platoon - No. 1 Platoon. Cadet Lieutenant D. J. Morrison.
Master Cadet Award - Cadet Captain P. J. S. Graham.
Cadet Sergeant S. M. Wilansky'.
Special thanks are due to Mr. Humphreys for his many efforts in this his
first year in command of the corpsg also to Wilansky. Grills and Stoddard II
for their help in returning uniforms.

As Mr. Joyce remarked in his speech on Closing Day. the Petawawa trip
was plagued with a host of poorly planned minor details that perhaps. had the
weather not been as perfect as it was. would have demoralized as well as in-
One of the highlights of the trip was the night orienteering course in which
the corps, in its respective sections, dispersed in different directions. more or
less under control of their orienteerers. to find, record and report back with
some unknown letter at a given point. This was a timed exercise made all the
more interesting by having the groups elude a hidden interceptor on the
The following day we embarked upon what was the core of the trip. All
sections were given maps and instructions on radio communication and told
to disappear until the following morning. The day was spent walking from
point to point. recording letters previously placed at x. y coordinates around
the country-side. Each group had about 12 points to find and each camped at
the last point they had to go to. The day was saved through constant conver-
sation and attempts famong groupsj to get un-lost. Some groups, the smarter
ones I think, went to their last points first and disposed of their back packs,
which, particularly for the smaller boys, was a good idea.
Entertainment that night was supplied by constant exchange over the radios
in spite of repeated pleas from base camp for radio silence. Apparently singing
beer-hall songs, protesting about the pine bugs, mosquitoes and other assorted
insects in off-colour language, is frowned upon even by the army.
The last day was spent lazing around, bathing and fishing in the lake,
handing-in equipment, packing, and taking rides in army half-trucks and
jeeps. On the morning of our departure, we were up at five and had breakfast
at the army mess hall at Camp Petawawa. We finally left and arrived at
Ottawa at 12:00 noon.
So much for the highlights, the low points were of course the unmention-

I think that the overall impression of the trip was favourable, and everyone
could say they enjoyed at least one aspect of the expedition even if it was only
the return journey. Perhaps next year more attention to the minor details and
the experience gained from this trip will result in an even more successful
and enjoyable time for all.
THE PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB
Owing, perhaps, to the shortage of free time and the disproportionate
amount of the same needed to pursue thisparticular hobby, enthusiasm was
not unbounded. And, consequently, photographic expression was restricted
fexcept of course amongst the die-hardsj to Thursday afternoons and even
then under some duress. However, all was not lost as several new members
were introduced to the 'sinner sanctumv' from where it is hoped that they will
continue next year.
Passport-sized individual photographs of all the students, a photography
course for a cadet activity, and coverage of major games and cultural events
during the school year, were included amongst the club's other spheres of
interest this year.

Our Science Club this year consisted of the following members: Wrong.
Stoddard. Hodgins. Hamilton. Nadcau. Bonneau, and myself as secretary.
Hodgins tried to extract nicotine from tobacco. His experiment involved
mixing tobacco with water. and distilling to obtain nicotine and water. He
acidified the solution to obtain a hydrochloride of nicotine. Boiling then
removes water and concentrates the nicotine. When alkali is added to neu-
tralize the acid. nicotine can be separated by using salt and ether. The result
was very good and had no ill effect on him.
Nada'-:au's experiment involved identification of the metal in a piece of
unknown mineral rock. Chemical tests showed the presence of iron in the
solution obtained with the rock and acid. Zinc dust displaced iron metal from
this solution and it was picked up by a magnet. Magnesium and aluminium
were also detected. He was satisfied with the results.
Bonneau tried to prove that sugar contains carbon. He did it by adding
concentrated sulphuric acid to sugar. After filtering and washing again and
again, a big black mass of carbon was obtained which satisfied his curiosity.
Hamilton was growing crystals with several different salts.
Stoddard used lead nitrate and sodium chloride to obtain sodium nitrate
and lead chloride. He tested his pure products for metals and acid radicles
and then confirmed their identity.
Wong and I did experiments on the principles of the electric current. its
motions and the magnetic field. We have quite a lot of experience in this
field. We are now making an apparatus for the school. The apparatus is for
an experiment concerned with the motion of a conductor in a magnetic field.

This has been a very fast year. The fact that it did go by so quickly is an
indication that it was a good year - certainly a very tumultuous one.
Trying to pick out highlights of the whole year is sometimes very difficult,
since events. while remembered by some, might not be remembered by others.
However. l'll start with something everyone must remember - cadets. Cadets
took on a new look this year, with much less drill, as you probably guessed
this morning. Instead of hours of marching. a more practical approach to
cadets was devised. Last Tuesday we all went to Camp Petawawa and came
back yesterday. except for a few hoarse throats and a few more mosquito
bites no worse off than when we had left.
Our formal this year took us and our sister school. Elmwood. to the Royal
Ottawa Golf Club. It was the best dance in a number of years and I'm sure
that those who did go will remember it for a long time.
Chapel this year also changed, with a much more modern approach to
religion. The rock opera "Jesus Christ - Superstar" was played on two Sundays
in a row and the grand finale was last week's service in the Library.
And who will forget the 7-1 win over Bishop's in football or the 1-0 loss in
the soccer semi-finals to Glebe? The hockey team will surely remember the
9-2 win over the Old Boys, and the skiers, l imagine, will never forget Owl's
There was much more cohesion within the School this year. However, the
spirit of the School was the spirit of the boarders - when the boarders were
up, so was the School, and when the boarders were down, so was the School.
There were still quite a few four o'clock schoolboys this year who contri-
buted nothing after classes - mostly day boys. ln a school of the size of
Ashbury it is difficult to have two boarder houses, and distinctions should not
be between two houses under the same roofg if distinctions must be made,
they should be between day boys and boarders, with one day boy house and
one boarder house.
House competitions were very close this year. Woollcombe won the swim
meet and hockey, while Connaught took the soccer and rugger games.
Hull, again this year, remained strictly out of bounds, but I am almost
certain that there were some weekend expeditions over to the forbidden city.
Ashbury College is built on a strong foundation of friendship and an even
stronger foundation of tradition. We must strive in the future for the better-
ment of the school by keeping up with the times by means of modification,
change and even abolition.
This betterment must come from within the School itself and can only he
achieved through a much closer relationship between staff and students.
Striving must be sincere. not a chain of superfluous and meaningless gestures.
I have been at Ashbury for five years and my feelings about leaving are
very mixed indeed. However, I am able to look back on my schooldays with
fond memories and. believe me, they are many.
Ashbury College has so much potential - let's use more of it.

FIRST FOOTBALL 1
The 1970 First Football season was very good. It opened with the Osgoode
game. Getting off to a slow start, Ashbury was down 7-0, but made a tremen- I
dous comeback to win 14-7. 2
Stanstead was another hard-fought game: the team did well until two A
mistakes gave Stanstead two touchdowns. The final 12-0 score understates
the best effort of Ashbury against Stanstead in years. Lindsay Place was the Q
next victory for Ashbury with a score of 13-6. 2
The next game was played at Bishop's. It was a see-saw battle of two very
evenly matched teams. A pass from Kelly to Clubb in the last minutes of play
gave Ashbury the victory with a score of 7-1. if
Osgoode again played Ashbury in what proved to be a very close game. K
Ashbury lost this game 14-13 and several key players were injured.
The next game was played at Lakefield against a very good opposition on l
a very sloppy field. Ashbury played exceptionally tenacious football, but pen-
alties at important stages of the game cost us victory, Lakefield won 15-8. Q
The final game of the season was the Old Boys game, which the School won
31-6, despite the valiant efforts of the opposition. I

The Second Football team finally won a game. The 12-6 victory, on a
muddy field in Montreal. was the first second team win in more years than
anyone cares to remember. The Bishops and Lakefield games were very
disappointing. but the team put in fine efforts in both games.
For the Selwyn House game we were boosted by a number of First team
players as well as advice and encouragement from Mr. Simpson.
We are extremely grateful to Mr. Penton and Mr. Niles for their unceasing
efforts and patience. They always maintained our interest in what can easily
become a routine game, and this means a great deal for the future of Ashbury

The start of what proved to be a tough exciting season was far from
promising. Plunged into our first games three days and one practice after
opening day against two of the best teams in the league, disaster was not
unexpected, although unhoped for. Play., however, improved over the next 5
league games with one tie and 4 wins. Skills and team coordination improved
in spite of injuries, and we ended the regular season with 7 wins, 3 losses and
tied for fourth place in the play-offs against Glebe Collegiate. The toss up
game for fourth place was hard and fast moving, neither team scoring, until
we made a fatal mistake in the last five minutes of play, and, in spite of re-
doubled efforts, we lost 1-0, bringing total losses to 4 out of 13 league games.
On a more personal level, highlights of the year's playing came at the
Stanstead. Bishops and the Old Boys games. We unfortunately lost 2-1 to
Stanstead, again a hard game in adverse weather conditions, and as a result
determined not to let Bishops beat us as they had Stanstead. Determination
proved victorious over a tough team and the final score was 1-0. The Old Boys
put up a stiff fight for at least the first half, but were unable to maintain their
drive and lost 2-1 to the superior team.
To give special mention to any particularly strong or valuable player
would be to list the team members. for everyone gave of his best at every
game. Perhaps. though. we should mention that George Harlley received the
Anderson trophy for the Most Valuable Player, and Stephen Went the Perry
trophy for Most Improved Player.
We the team would like to take this opportunity to give a vote of thanks
to Ed Jokinen for the valuable contribution he made in goal and to Mr.
Anderson as coach. To the team next year from this year's graduates "Good
Luckug you'll need it for the future Old Boys games.

The 1970-71 season was one of moderate success for the Ashbury first
hockey team. Of the seventeen games played. Ashbury managed eight
victories. the majority of the wins coming in the second half of the season.
The team played some good solid hockey. but a lack of depth hurt their
chances against teams of top calibre.
The major problem at the first of the season was finding capable replace-
ments for the excellent goal-tending received the year previous. However.
Robert Pimm and ,lay Ronalds accepted the net-minding challenge and con-
tributed much to the team's more consistent play in the second half of the
The majority of the games were played against stiff local competition.
members of the Ottawa High School league. In these games, the boys showed
they could more than hold their own. Starting the season with two quick
victories, the team then fell prey to some erratic defensive play and sagged
badly until the Champlain game in late January. A well-earned 4-2 victory
put the team back on the winning track and it began to play the solid brand
of hockey demonstrated earlier in the season.
However, it was the traditional rivalries against Bishops. Lakefield and the
Old Boys that the team looked forward to with the greatest anticipation. The
game results were not as satisfying.
An aggressive Bishops team withstood a third period rally and emerged a
7-4 victor. Ashbury battled the strong Lakefield club to a 1-1 standoff for
two periods of play, but were unable to stand relentless third period pressure,
and lost by a decisive 7-1 margin.
A measure of redemption was claimed in the Old Boys game however, as
the team romped to a spirited 9-2 victory, their most decisive win of the season
in the final game of the year.
The Fraser trophy awarded to the most valuable player went to Mike Kelly,
a most deserving performer who played standout hockey game in and game
out. Derek Pryde, small in size, but long on skill and determination, won the
Irvin trophy as the most improved player on the team.
Some of the team's more valuable performers will be missing next year,
but a good nucleus of hockey talent remains and, with continued improvement
from some of the younger team members, Ashbury should again be a foe to
be reckoned with in the new year.

This was a very good season for the Second Hockey team. The weather
caused chaos in the schedule. but all worked out well. Good effort was put
in by all, especially by Peter Wilson. who played exceptionally well in goal.
The leading goal-scorers were Ian Robertson. Stuart Jelenick, Peter Croal
and Ricky Luciani.
The highlight of the season was the trip to Amherst, Massachusetts, where
the team faced a very good opposition.
Several members of the team will make a very strong contribution to the
First Hockey team next year.

This winter's curling must go down on record as the best ever. The first
team played 15 games in the Ottawa High School League where we won 9
games and earned a playoff berth. This is a first for Ashbury in three years
of interscholastic competition. Unfortunately the berth was defaulted due to
the school having Easter holidays when the playoffs started. Uur positional
standing has been improved from fourth place last year to third this year.
For the second time Ashbury entered the Tiny Hermann Bonspiel. We did
very well going to the semi-finals before losing to a very fine. but lucky. team
on the last rock. Needless to say they went on to win the final.
The first and second teams had their annual games with Bishops. The 1st
team defeated the Bishopis team by a comfortable margin. Our 2nd team lost
on the last rock. It is quite remarkable to notice the number of games which
were decided by the last rock. Combined score for the Ashbury-Bishops
games was Ashbury 17 and Bishop's 11.
There was a lot of fun curling the day of the House Competition. Several
Masters played and also some Grade 9 and 10 first time curlers. You could
tell the first time curlers from the Masters - they were smaller! On the basis
of combined scores Connaught beat Wfoollcombe 20 to 16.
Skips for House League Curling were Himsa. McLellan. Plummer and
Stoddard. When points were added up Himsa was declared Champion.
Three of the House League skips ffiimsa. McLellan. Stoddard, teamed up
with the first team's Kenny to form Ashbury's second team. The first team

Ashbury's ski-team participated in two major competitions this year: the
Art Lovett Memorial Ski Meet held at Camp Fortune, and the Tri-School
Meet at Owl's Head in the Eastern Townships.
In the Art Lovett, Ashbury finished second in a field of six local high-
schools. This was one of our better efforts in competitive skiing in recent
years, and was largely the result of a consistent effort on the part of all
members of the team. rather than a brilliant display by one or two individuals.
However, the performances of two new-comers to the team are worthy of note:
Dan Lackie placed seventh in the giant slalom and third in the slalom, Tony
Seay, who came to us from Sedbergh, placed sixth in the cross-country.
At Owl's Head. our luck was much the same as last year. The gremlins
were at work again, and most of our skiers lost time or were disqualified by
falls. As a result, Ashbury finished fifth in a field of five. Unlike last year,
however, there was a very real compensation for an otherwise disappointing
result. Jimmy Cuttle won the trophy, falmost as big as he isj, for the best
individual performance. His personal results for the meet were as follows:
first in the slalom, third in the giant slalom, and an amazing thirteenth in
the cross-country. This was a truly fine performance, and well deserving of
the highest praise.

The School entered a senior and an intermediate team in the Ottawa High
Schools meet and met with mixed success. The seniors encountered very stiff
competition in the open events. but the intermediate team. comprising Scott
Mclfachran. Tom Dickson. Scott Harcourt and Peter Copestake. performed
creditably, winning a place in the final of the Medley Relay. ln addition
Mcliiachran. Copestake and Harcourt won places in the individual finals.
The climax to the season was the Ashbury meet. and what a climax it
proved to bel Woollcombe avenged last season's defeat. winning a thrilling
competition by 185-183 points on the last event.
As swimming is still a fledgling sport at Ashbury. it has been decided not
to make team awards at this stage.
Hugger was introduced as one of the spring term sports this year. Consider-
able interest seems to have been created. despite the fact that other established
sports made inroads on the numbers available to play. Nevertheless we were
able to arrange a first-ever Ashbury inter-House game. in which Connaught
deservedly beat lfoollcombe by 3-0.
The spring term is not really suitable for a number of reasons. but at
present there is no alternative.
It is hoped that next year we might arrange a seven-a-side competition with
other interested schools in the city.

A BUSINESS ENCOUNTER
Hendrick de Wet was a lucky man. for he was a man of business who liked
his work. He was an ivory-hunter by profession, and a farmer by aspiration.
and success in the first was steadily piling up the gold "Krugers" which
would enable him to start the other. He puffed contentcdly at his long pipe.
enjoying the evening sunlight casting its glow over the grassy veldt. The
camp was a scene of quiet domesticity. The "boys" moved slowly about their
tasks, watering the horses. trek oxen and cattle. cleaning and repairing the
great wagon and cooking their evening meal.
Suddenly the subdued clatter of the routine gave way to an excited hubbub.
A small, yellow-skinned man, his hair twisted into tight peppercorn knots
came trotting into camp. He was a bushman with the peculiar stance and
inserutable expression of the Kalahari hunters. He halted in front of Hendrick
and squatted, bowing briefly so that his forehead touched the dust, and then
sat, idly drawing patterns with the tip of his bow and mulling over his
thoughts with the patience of one who was unconcerned with time as white
men know it. He spoke. "Mein Kroon, I, Rinkalss. have searched many days,
seeing what these blind Waginga fwith a glance of contempt at the Bantu
servants, hereditary enemies of his racej who call themselves hunters have
not seenfi He paused portentously. "I have seen Chinoko, the bewitched
one!" Hendrick sat bolt upright, his hand unconsciously snapping the clay
stem of his pipe.
"Allerweld! His tusks, man, are they what the legends say?" Hendricks
eyes gleamed as he remembered tales of Chinoko, last seen hy Andreius
Pretorius, the great Boer hunter, who had hunted him and died in the attempt.
Of how his tusks were so heavy that he rested them on tree branches. and
how the natives swore that the spirit of Chaka, the "Black Elephant" and
despot of Zululand, lived on in him. The bushman answered, his face as
ever expressionless, but a flicker of concern in his slanted eyes.
"Baas, because I swore to serve you when you saved me from the Great
Thirst, I have done this thing, but my heart is heavy. The ivory is as great
as the tales say, but ---, Baas, every hunter who has sought this beast has died.
and already enough tusks lie in the wagon for the land you yearn for. Why
bring the curse upon your head?"
Hendrick's booming laugh rang out over the camp.
6'Afraid of the spook. eh. Rinkalss? Well. I'd sell my soul to get those
tusks. They'll be a record for certain, and I don't set much store by the
mungu-mungu's tales. Pack some biltong on Blouboi, and be ready at sun-up."
The bushman sighed noiselessly and bowed again, murmuring. ".Ia. ja.
baasf, under his breath, and then rose to his feet and strode away in one
curiously fluid motion.
Four hard and difficult days later, the Boer and the bushman crouched
motionless in a bush and watched with awe as the great elephant stood. sway-
ing and resting his great ivory tusks on a low branch of a thorn tree. His grey.
dusty hide was ripped and scarred by innumerable conflicts and the crippling
wound left by Pretorius' quarter-pound lead shot was plainly visible. This
animal was old, perhaps as much as a century, and every angle of his still-
mighty frame exuded the same sense of ancient solidity as the bare, stark
slope of a mountain.
Slowly, softly Hendrick worked the bolt of his .450 elephant gun and with
infinite, painstaking care lifted it to his shoulder, drawing a bead on the
crucial spot behind the shoulder. His finger tightened with a smooth, steady
motion. Suddenly, the great grey head turned and he found himself looking
into the small, wrinkled eyes. Hendrick hesitated as a strange sensation stole
over him. For a brief moment he glimpsed the mind behind that eye, felt an
ancient lassitude, the tired, solitary essence of a being weary unto death.
Hendrick felt an unfamiliar emotion: pity. The gun came down from his
shoulder reluctantly, but cursing his weakness he raised it again. Hesitating,
irresolute, the muzzle wavered and then with a quick, decisive movement the
hunter pointed it skyward and fired.
The shot broke the buzzing, humid stillness of the lowveldt afternoon. The
sail-like ears and snaky trunk whipped up, instantly alert and then with a
rending crash the huge beast was gone. Hendrick looked down at his hands
curled around the rifle: hard, capable hands, calloused from rope and rein
and gunstock, and groped for the words to express novel concepts. For a
moment he stood thus. then with a shrug of his shoulders he turned to his
horse, saying, "Come I see the finger of the Lord in this, and it is time I
returned to my own people and my own land."
The bushman smiled enigmatically and silently thanked the ancient,
mysterious gods of the Kalahari for their munificence as he fell into his
tireless lope behind his master's horse. The beat of the horse's hooves echoed
for a moment and then all was as before, except for a single brass cartridge
shining in the sun.
Here it is a Thursday night
And still I have a poem to write.
"A long or short one" was the warning,
'6To be handed in on Friday morning."
Since a poet I am not
I will write I know not what.
I cannot think of what to say,
And time so quickly flies away.
I'd like to write of lands and seas
Or possibly of flow'rs and trees.
The land is dry, the sea is deep, - -
But all too soon l'll fall asleep!
Perhaps I'll be like Willy Shakespeare
And compose a sonnet to my Dark Dear.
Or perhaps as Keats I'd make you yearn
To know just how much a Greek does "urn'.
"A long or short one" was the warning,
"To be handed in on Friday morning."
FERRETS AND FERRETING
According to a beloved American tradition. every boy should have a dog.
But judging from the literature of England of the last century. a dog was
considered an unnecessary luxury for youngsters. although every boy did have
his own ferret. He used the ferret to bolt rabbits into nets. and made his
pocket money selling the rabbits to butchers. as many an Englishman fondly
remembers. Gamekeepers. poachers. and ratcatchers also had ferrets. Although
many descriptions of rural life in England contain references to ferrets, there
is little or no account of their use in America. Yet ferrets were employed in
America on a scale much greater than that of Europe.
From the beginning of time. hunters have longed for some device to bolt
quarry from holes and burrows. The ferret was the answer. In Egyptian times
nobles used trained weasel-like animals called ichneumons to retrieve injured
ducks from dense cover. Later a small Asian weasel was domesticated, and
probably crossed with the European polecat to give it more size and stamina.
The domestic ferret flllustela furoj is the result. and averages about a foot
and a half in length. including a five-inch tail. and it stands some three inches
high. The females. called "jills". are much smaller but are better ratters, as
the big males. known as "habs". are often too large to go down the holes.
Ferrets have become so completely domesticated that they can not fend for
themselves in the wild. and a lost ferret will starve to death. Domestic ferrets
are quite slow. and cannot catch quarry unless they happen to corner their
prey in a dead-end hole. But in hunting. their work is to drive out the quarry.
not to kill it.
Ferrets were used not only against rats and rabbits. but on just about every
animal that has to be bolted from burrows. They had other uses, too. When
telephone companies started to put their lines underground. the only way they
could run the wires through the long pipes was to start a rat through the pipe
with a ferret after him. the ferret wearing a harness to which was attached a
light string that later was used to pull the wire through the duct. Ratcatchers
used ferrets a great deal in their profession. which in the days of the plague
was an important job.
Professional ratcatc-hers usually break in young ferrets by keeping them
in a loft full of old drainpipes so that the animals will get used to running
through long passageways in complete darkness. although this really isn't
necessary as ferrets will go down a hole naturally. The ferrets must also get
used to the ratting terriers. who are their partners in the hunt. When the little
ferrets are six months old. the trainer gives them mice to kill. Later he puts
in rats whose long incisor teeth have been removed: otherwise the young
animals might get so badly bitten that they'd come to fear rats.
The mere presence of a ferret in a hole drives rats mad with terror. A
ferret follows rats by their scent. like a miniature bloodhound. and no matter
where the rats hide he will eventually "ferret them out". A ferret that is a
"killer" fone that deliberately tries to corner rats to kill and eat themj. is
not considered a good ratter. He wastes too much time and it's too hard to get
him out of a hole. Killing is the dog's job.
Game commissions often use ferrets to catch rabbits alive for restocking.
A bag or net is held at the mouth of the hole: nets are better as a bag darkens
the entrance and sometimes makes the rabbit turn back. Purse-type nets
operating on the drawstring principle were once made for this purpose. and
could be bought in any general store.
In these days ferrets are illegal in most of the United States and Canada,
supposedly for sporting reasons. Personally, I feel that ferreting is a fasci-
nating sport. It is most unfortunate that misinformed people are against it.
In Europe, ferreting still seems to be practised, but the average person has
read little or heard little of this exciting art.
I rush myself, to pass swift through,
And render previous efforts vain,
Aft mystic cons,mate thoughts do grope.
My lines run false, what needist be true,
Boredom and weariness in the main,
Take their toll of fickle hope.
The ego, like a tempest grew.
Which pierced, releas'd such torrents bane,
That frail. and timid talent slopes,
Paper clips have many uses.
And even come in for abuses.
When the boy was young, and the day did rain
He slipped them together to make a chain:
When the chain was long enough, he felt,
Hell tie it around him like a belt.
"Paper clip collars!" - his dogs would yelp,
And he'd finish up having to cry for help.
When the same boy was somewhat older,
And. l might add. a good deal bolder,
Clips. in his slingshot were ammunition
To send poor birds straight to perdition.
I must confess that his aim was erratic
And the rows of jays merely gave him static.
When even older and out at work,
Many and often were the times he'd shirk.
"Working for a living: what a pain!"
"Slip clips together to make a chain."
"Rubber band? Oh. good morning, Miss Sweetingf'
"Good shot! that caught the old gal retreating."
There is a moral to this caper.
"Use paper clips for holding paper."

THROUGH THE EYES OF AN OLD TIMER
It was ,luly 30th. 1971. when Abe awoke. He felt as though he had
been asleep for a century. He arose refreshed but hungry. As he looked about
him. he thought he noticed a difference in the woods from when he had
fallen asleep. He couldn't quite place it but. oh well. no matter.
He removed his hunting knife from its sheath and fondled it lovingly
between his fingers. He'd won it at the county fair the year before and had
carried it with him ever since.
Two hours later he was sitting beside a fire chewing away on a fine young
rabbit. After he had finished. Abe decided he'd better be going home. He'd
told his wife he would be gone just a night and so not to worry.
He struck out in a north-easterly direction. being sure to keep the sun to
his right and slightly behind him. He thought it strange that he had not
heard any birds. He soon noticed that the sky was becoming overcast and so
began to hurry. It did not rain.
Suddenly he came to an opening in the trees. A thin strip extended as far
as he could see in either direction. Vlfithin this clearing were two separate
paths. To Abe they were smooth and grey, reminding him of two long hair
.lust then Abe heard a noise. It grew louder and louder. With a roar it rushed
past him and disappeared in the distance. It was hard to describe the thing.
It seemed to be made of green iron. It had four eyes and flashing teeth. It
resembled a carriage. but then it didn't. Wfhatever it was its harsh smell
stung his nostrils. Abe fainted.
When he awoke he had no idea where he was. He seemed to be lying on a
couch. There were two of them in the small room. both facing the same way.
Sitting on the other one were two men. but they were dressed in a very strange
Abe lay there. trembling. He seemed to be dreaming. But no. he wasn't.
The room had windows in it. so Abe raised himself up and stared out. He
felt himself feeling faint again. The ground and trees were moving along in
a blur. Soon he began to see buildings of some sort. But they were different.
They became larger and larger until they seemed to scrape the sky. The room
stopped beside one of these structures that appeared to be made of rock. A
door in the side of the room opened and the two men helped Abe get out. He
stood there. legs trembling. feeling extremely weak.
Then it hit him. Everywhere there was confusion and noise. The atmosphere
around him stung his eyes. Abe began to cough. He looked around and saw
many more things with eyes and flashing teeth. He heard sounds that resem-
bled the honking of geese in the spring and fall. but they were much harsher.
There were also loud sounds that he could not recognize at all. He could not
see any trees or grass and he was standing. not on earth, but on a hard foreign
The men ushered him towards the structure. One of them entered the
doors. They started to go around and around. Abe was expecting the man to
come out again. but he didn't. The other man escorted him to the doors. Abe
walked in and found himself having to walk quickly so as not to clip his
heels. Around and around he went until one of the men pulled him out of the
doors into a very large room. He had never seen anything like it before in
his life. Light was streaming from squares in the ceiling and people in white
were bustling around like ants at a picnic.
A man in white walked up to Abe and took him down many of the halls.
They came to a pair of doors and stopped. But there were no latches or
handles. The door opened, Abe stood there aghast, They entered through the
doors into a small room. The man pressed a button and Abe's stomach liter-
ally dropped to the floor. Abe fell against the wall and hung on to a supporting
rail. Then he felt as though he had just lost fifty pounds. The door opened
and he found himself in a hallway that he did not recognize.
This was too much. He ran to the end of the hall and came to a glass door.
He shoved it open. Abe was careful not to look down for he found himself
high in the sky. Leading down to the ground were stairs.
Meanwhile, the man in white was chasing Abe and he had no choice but
to leap down the stairs as fast as he could. He found the steps ended about
ten feet above the ground and he was forced to jump.
He started running but had only gone a few feet when he stopped. He
looked up. With a roar, a huge silver bird flew a few hundred feet over Abe's
head. Smoke was pouring from its wings. Abe covered his cars and fell. . .

A CASE OF FRUSTRATION
You have been trying to convince your boss that you must catch a train
that leaves in twenty minutes. Finally he notices how nervous and fidgety
you are so he lets you go. You grab your briefcase and coat and dart down-
stairs to shout for a taxi. The driver is a fat old man who is slightly deaf. As
you give him your destination, he happy-go-luckily begins to sing to himself.
After a long and winding journey. you make it to the train station, only two
minutes left. Fortunately for you, your ticket is already bought. but unfortu-
nately for you. you are out of cigarettes. You scuttle over to the cigarette
machine. drop your briefcase and coat. and feverishly serabble for the proper
change to dab into the machine from your bulging coin-pocket. The train
has already arrived. and the conductors have just yelled. "All aboard." Your
brand of cigarettes isn't there so you hurriedly think of another type you're
fond of. You stab the button just as the train begins to move and you wait the
extra few seconds for the matches. By now the train's speed has increased
quite impressively. Now you run. run faster than you have ever run before.
Your aim is for the bars on the caboose that are coming closer and closer as
you pour on the speed. Finally with one last dive. you reach and grab the cold
n1etal rungs. As you slowly pull yourself to the platform you look back at that
solitary cigarette machine that you hate so much. And there beside it are your
briefcase and coat.
TWO CARS THAT CRASHED
Blood is running.
Bones are crushed:
Can't help crying.
Cars are smashed,
Some still living
With broken heads.
Can't last long,
I'm too far gone.
The end is here.
All things mashed.
Such the result:
Two cars that crashed.
He's with me at last as I climb inside my bottle. I never thought he would
make it tonight. Lately it has taken a lot before he would appear. Tonight
one bottleg tomorrow maybe two. I never feel secure until he comes. He does
something for mc. But we have split. Vfe are one and the same. yet we are
different from each other. As I am not imaginative I could never arrive at a
name for him. He is simply X. the unknown.
He talks to me as the teacher would talk to the pupil. Our relationship is
like that of the intellectual to the baby. He is so superior to me I cannot feel
inferior. I can only regard him with awe and obey him. for everything he
says stems from the most perfect logic. Perhaps he is not so smart. Perhaps
I am only a drunken fool. Yet he is so convincing. He cannot see. or feel. or
smell. I am his eyes. his hands. his nose. He can only listen to my problems
and then talk. Oh. how he can talk! Sometimes I am overcome to the point
of blackout. It would not do to black out though.for he might leave me. Some
other body might appeal to himg some other mind. I'd be lost without him.
Some people without too many brains would consider me an alcholic. They
donit realize I have to remain sane. If they stopped me from drinking it
would be like prison where you're not allowed to visit your best friend when
you want. Some people have religion: they have God or Jesus Christ. I have
X, the unknown.
But tonight he appears different. Wait. he's talking to me now. W'hat's hc
saying? I can't make it out. One more drink. He's coming in clearer now.
I've got it now. I am supposed to kill. I can't kill just anybody. It has to be
someone in particular. I hoped it would never come to this. He's not satisfied
with just my mind. now. He wants my body too. I guess he wants complete
control. Une can't really blame him. He is smarter than me. talks better. is
more convincing. He would never make a fool of himself. In fact. he deserves
me better than I do. There's only one answer. I'll have to kill myself to make
room for a superior. That's life! The weak ones die. the strong ones live. l'm
sorry that I am so weak. Maybe next time it will be different. Good-bye ....
Multitudes are passing before me
But they don't see me
For Iim dead.
Faces drawn and thin
Encircle where eyes must have been,
But now in their place
Are dark swollen things.
No words are spoken
For none are needed.
Burned out souls
Need utter no sound.
For sound is an echo of thought,
And here there is no thought,
As there once was said to be.
Life is given and life is taken,
Or so it was once writ
By one of power and goodness
W'ho. it was believed
fby poor dejected soulsj.
Guided children and older children
To love each other and live in peace.
But it was found there could be no
Amongst despotic warring nations,
Thus there was left but one form of
The Ultimate Utopia.
The Ultimate peace.
The sweet bliss of death:
The silver bird
Stoops to kill
No sound is heard
All is still
Beautiful in line and form
Beauty cold and stern
Fire and steel. war tide's storm
Wings flash and turn
Needle beak. pinion's sweep
Cannon flashing bright
O silver bird. our foemen reap
Angel of the Lords of Lightf

RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
Walter was running for his life. A short distance behind him were at least
a score of savages, armed with razor-edged spears and clubs. Ahead of him lay
the jungle, filled with unknown dangers. Beyond that lay the safety of the
base camp - four miles ahead.
The savages, naked to the waist, ran bare-foot across the jungle floor. They
slipped easily in between the low bushes and undergrowth. Necklaces of
leopard claws stood out against their black skins. Walter cursed his heavy,
awkward hunting boots and thick clothing. but he knew better than to stop.
He ran heavily, but not slowly.
The aborigines were not running full out: they realized that they had
plenty of time in which to finish this cat-and-mouse game. They smiled to
one another as they ran. and their smiles revealed spiked teeth - teeth filed
to points. They knew their quarry was sure to tire. and besides. they weren't
that hungry - yet.
Walter was well aware of his predicament. If the cannibals caught him.
they would eat him -- it was that simple. He had the sense and keen insight
to realize that he would have to pace himself to be able to continue: running
blindly and recklessly would merely burn up his energy. and exhaust him
quickly. So Walter ran steadily at a brisk pace, vaguely aware that the
aborigines strung out behind him were likewise settling into an even gait.
Gradually the panic in Wfalters mind subsided, and was replaced with cold
determination. Walter realized he had a chance if he kept his nerve and used
his wits: his stamina was his one great hope. So Walter ran on. timing his
breaths with his strides, and using his lungs to their capacity. His pulse
gradually slowed and steadied to a regular beat.
Logs and clumps of vegetation appeared in his path from time to time. but
Walter was cautious: a stumble or trip would mean his death. Occasionally
a jungle bird would flush. and startle Walter badly. But once he looked up
and saw a deadly snake - the venomous Boomslang - strung across a branch
over the path. Walter reacted quickly and managed to duck just in time. A
few moments later he heard one of his pursuers shriek as the snake struck
home with its poisonous fangs.
However, the rest of the natives paused but briefly. then continued the
chase with renewed fervour. They were intent on their prey.
Walter kept going. and the natives persevered. But the aborigines were
finally beginning to show signs of fatigue -- this man was not such an easy
catch after all. They had underestimated the stamina of this apparent weak-
ling. However. they were far from giving up. They had gone two miles. but
they had two more in which to overtake their prey.
The race with death was taking its toll on Walter - his muscles screamed
for rest: his lungs were near to bursting. Once he almost gave in to the great
temptation to stop briefly. But a close miss by a long range spear changed his
mind. Animal instincts were strong in him. Sheer guts and determination
kept him moving. He gritted his teeth and ran on. and on. and on.
Meanwhile, of the some twenty to thirty cannibals that had started after
him. only a dozen or so were uncomfortably close to him: the rest had fallen
far back or given up. But the savages were persistent -- their hunting lives
had taught them to be both patient and relentless.
In a sudden flash of movement, Walter tripped, and collapsed on the
ground. He almost didn't get up. The natives were closing in fast. Then he
saw the smoke of the base camp, and he was inspired. He jumped to his feet,
and forced his aching body to respond. He poured on all his strength, and ran,
and ran, and ran.
Then, before him like a mirage, he saw the camp. People were calling to
him. Images turned through his mind in a dream-like haze. He could no
longer feel his body - only excruciating pain. He no longer cared what
happened. Yet through some miracle, he managed to complete the last few
strides into the safety of the camp. Then he blacked out.
When Walter revived. he became aware of friends around him, friends
supporting him and congratulating him. "You did it again, Walt," cried one
of his supporters. 6'You beat the best runners in the country," yelled another.
6'Yes, you won the cross-country for the fourth time in a row," added a
beaming admirer. The coach came up and said approvingly: HYou were great.
But tell me - how do you do it? What's your secret? you ran as if your life
depended on it."
Walter just panted. and grinned slightly to himself.
I sit and watch the people.
The people on the road,
And I watch them through my window
That sits just off the road.
But I feel the eyes of people.
The eyes that follow me.
And they stare and gaze in anger,
And they will not let me be.
For I sit away from all of them
And I do not walk their road,
For they all wander like blind men
And walk and just grow old.
But I'1l not walk that path today
Following their feetg so let me be,
Not follow those who always frown
Because I shall be me.
A STUDY IN MOTION
As from a Stringg
As an Arrow:
MAN CAN FLY. HE HAS EVOLVED.
Gallons of fuel foam into tanks
Leaving fumes heavy on the morning air
Wings drooping with weight,
The hoses are removed
To lie, snake-like, on the gras
Checking engines. flaps. wheels.
The plane is left like a metal grasshopper
On the runway.
The pilots arrive. and enter.
They sean the panels:
Instruments stare back.
Hands play over switehesg
The great motors begin to turn.
Pistons. hearings. chains and wheels
Move with purpose.
The machine moves. gathering speed.
The earth trembles.
With a flash of wings
The plane takes off:
Spreads its wings
Both Bird and Man
One is superior . .
Silent as a cat
It grows. feeding on air.
Into a rushing thing:
The whole atmosphere
Throwing itself. roaring
On anything in its path:
It is spent.
The wind is a kitten on
Playful. chasing string.

The sands of time have dissolved the visits of the

Trees, sadly cannot manage a smile,
The water runs impeded by a congregation
of floating fish.
Grim crackling in the night, as only the

A boy cries in the wilderness for life once more.
The world rests with the smell of destruction,
Smoke fills the streets signifying the end
I FEEL FINE
I feel fine anytime she's around me,
She's around me now almost all the time,
If I'm well you can tell she's been with me,
Sheis been with me now quite a long, long time,
And I feel fine.
There's something in the way she moves.,
Or looks my way or calls my name,
That seems to leave this troubled world behind.
And if I'm feeling down and blue,
Or troubled by some foolish game,
She always seems to make me change my mind.
Every now and then the things I lean on lose their meaning,
And I find myself careening
Into places where I should not let me go.
But she has the power to go where no-one else can find me,
And to silently remind me
Of the happiness and good times that I know.
It isnit what sheis got to say.
Or how she thinks or where she's been,
To me her words are nice the way they sound.
I like to hear them best, her way.
It doesnit matter what they mean,
She says them mostly just to calm me down.
I feel fine anytime sheis around me,
Sheis around me now almost all the time.
If Iim well you can tell she's been with me.
Sheis been with me now quite a long, long time.
And I feel fine. Yes! I feel fine.

Monday morning, very early,

halls and from the tunnels,
classrooms, from the lockers,
quad and from the library,
flats and from the bedrooms,
students, loudly wailing,
students. strolling slowly.
Students fat and students meagre,
Students tall and students shorter,
To the Hall. to Rhodes Hall coming,
On the chairs they sat complaining,
Half asleep but still complaining,
Very sleepy were the students
In the tranquil air of morning.
"Oh be quiet, stop your talking,
mighty Duguay shouting,
Cease that scraping of your benches,
Cease that tapping on the tables."
Now the prefects had their silence,
The order was that all must stand there,
Through the door came Joyce, Headmaster,
With arms swinging he came forward,
6'Sit down. boys." came the order,
'6Please sit down and stop the noise.
I have glorious things to tell you,
Tales of victories. tales of triumph.
Boys of Ashbury School defeated,
Not by much and not in spirit,
Only nineteen goals to nothing,
Soon I hope to see the dayboys
Turning out in greater numbers,
Let us see you out there shouting,
Let us see some more school spirit.
Stand please, boys, and say the Lord's
So they did and mumbled, "Amen.,,
So Mr. Joyce slowly left them
Head in air and keen eyes flashing.
See the boys, hurry, hurry,
Glad indeed to get to classes
And to leave the Hall behind them.

THE WILD HUNT
To thunder's flash the wild hunt rides
Stark against the moon,
Hell hounds bay at their tattered sides
Moaning, while hunters croon.
Despair! Despair! The hern-horn cries,
The damned ones lash their steeds,
No mortal knows the harsh, keening sighs
- Except when the wild hunt feeds!
Peace is a word
Of the sea and the wind.
Peace is the love
Of a foe as a friend.
Peace is a dawn
On a day without end.
Peace is the joy
Bringing war to an end.
Like a word in the news.
So all alone.
With three billion others.
God. take his hand.
And show him where to go.
Don't you know him?
He's the little stranger.

This year has left many happy memories with all of us who are leaving
the Junior School to seek our fortunes elsewhere.
I will always remember the all too familiar call of "Strike Three!" ringing
in my ears as I sadly left the batter's boxg the echoing of Mr. Sherwood's voice
as he shouted, "Don't run in the hallsl"g the shrill blast of the ref's whistle
as he pointed to the penalty spotg the metallic clink of another high jump
"flub"g the roar as another Johnson slapshot ripped the netg and last and
most certainly least. the deadly hush that greeted the 'gpunch line" of another
The year's athletic and academic competitions have been very close and no
House need be ashamed that it did not come first.
Of all the days in the year. the one that gives the greatest number of boys
the opportunity to do their "thing" is probably Sports Day. The Day this
year was very dramatic and all over the fields boys were breaking their backs
achieving personal bests in order to give their houses precious points. The
feeling of pride among our particular House when our Senior Relay Team
won was so great that you could almost reach out and touch it. Wonderful
moments such as these make up an experience that I will cherish always.
Whether the boys that leave go on to other schools or to the Senior School.
I know that they will always remember with happiness the Junior School and
the way of life and learning that we are leaving behind us.
The Junior School is divided into four Houses, and the healthy rivalry
which results is one of the most important factors contributing to that vague
term, 66School Spirit".
I am introducing this topic into the Notes as I possibly have a certain
perspective which permits me to be a judge of the matter. After a close
association with the Junior School for many years, I moved to other work.
Only this year did I return to full time participation.
Perhaps this will allow me to give our School a hearty pat on the back, as
I think I retain a dispassionate point of view.
In his closing address to the boys, Mr. Sherwood spoke of the year as having
been a good one. He mentioned that there had been better - and worse. If this
is the case. we have a high standard.
The House rivalry mentioned in the opening paragraph is only one instance
of the high morale of the School. The fact that a boy is popular because he
works hard, not despite this fact. is another. The genuine interest which the
Colour Board attracts is another factor. equally important to House rivalry.
The staff have been able to arouse whole-hearted support for such varied
group activities as cross country running, and poetry reading. As mentioned
in the article about the Chess Tournament, 75970 of the boys entered.
Perhaps the prime example of School Spirit was shown when practically the
whole Junior School gave up a Saturday to raise money for the Canadian
Save The Children Fund. The specific purpose was to increase our support of
Rosaria, Ashbury's "sister" who lives in the slums of Rome. Each House
produced five teams. and Rockcliffe Park was divided among the groups who
went from home to home spring cleaning. Cars were washed, lawns were
raked. rubbish was disposed of. By the end of a cheerless. rainy day S536 had
The boys are happy at Ashbury because they work hard. After careful
screening we have accepted many an unhappy "problem child" whose be-
haviour was the despair of his parents and teachers in a previous school.
Almost without exception these boys. under friendly discipline, have fitted
happily into the Junior School. and in many cases have made a considerable
The year has of course had its problems. At many a Monday Assembly the
boys have sat in frightened silence while Mr. Sherwood has forcefully pointed
out misdemeanors. Problems yes. but no outrages. A happy family has similar
situations to contend with.
"Just one big, happy family", is a trite phrase, but I do feel that Ashbury's
Junior School can lay claim to the expression.
JUNIOR SCHOOL HOUSE COMPETITION
A most enthusiastic competition this year kept the lead changing from
House to House right up until the day before Closing. The result was very
much in doubt until the last game in the House Softball Competition which
was clearly won in both divisions by the bottom House, the Goblins, from the
Hobbits and Wizards in that order.
The year's final points were:
HOBBITS 972 M. Josselyn, Captain of House.
WIZARDS 952 S. Belding. Captain of House.
DRAGONS 940 P. Farquhar. Captain of House.
GOBLINS 889 C. Teron, Captain of House.
Houses competed in every aspect of school endeavour. points being awarded
for academics, colour board, choir membership, librarian appointments, sports,
and a dozen other activities from the pancake toss to snow sculpturing. Points
were awarded both individually and for team results.
Each of the Houses met with success in some field of endeavour. Below are
mentioned the various House Winners of team events.
lst Term: Soccer Senior Goblins
Tug o' War Senior Goblins
2nd Term: Swimming First Dragons
Hockey Senior Dragons

Congratulations to this year's winner, The Hobbits, and to their coach,
Grub Day has now become an annual event at Ashbury. lt would seem
that we enjoy being as dirty and shabbily dressed as possible. Every boy had to
pay 2548 admission and the money was sent to St. Michael's Mission in South
Africa to help fight cholera.
The vast majority of the Junior School entered. Some came in torn-up
shirts and hacked jeans, others in scuffed clothes with mud and paint over
them. Some took this opportunity to get away from school dress and came in

JUNIOR SCHOOL AWARDS
The two most important awards in the Junior School are The Woods Shield,
established in 1941, and the Stephen Clifford Memorial Cup, established this
year. Winners of the cups are the two most outstanding boys in the Junior
Shirley E. Woods, a distinguished Old Boy of Ashbury, was appointed
Chairman of the Board of Governors in 1938, remaining in this position until
1945. At the time he donated the Woods Shield three of his sons were attend-
ing Ashbury in the Junior School. The first winner of the Shield was John
Turner, presently Minister of Justice. This year's winner is Chris Teron.
Stephen Clifford came to Ashbury in April, 1969 to complete Grade 7. He
fitted so admirably into our school life that he was appointed a Monitor the
following year. Stephen was killed in a tragic accident just before his return
to Ashbury in September, 1970. The Memorial Cup is awarded to the boy
who has made the greatest contribution to his House, and is a fitting memorial
to one who himself made such a fine contribution to Ashbury. The first
winner of the Cup is Mark Josselyn, Captain of the Hobbits.
THE POETRY READING CONTEST
As with the Public Speaking contest, interest was so wide spread among
our poetry readers that class eliminations had to be held to reduce the finalists
to a manageable number. On the day of the event our judges, Dr. Spencer and
Mr. Babbitt were presented with the following slate of contestants: Blake and
Hall Il from Form Ig Ablack and Tkachuk from Form llg Scott and
McKenna from Form III, Rosen and Pimm from Form IHA, Belding and
Stenger from Transitusg Babbitt and Josselyn from Transitus A.
The final decision was a difficult one to make as one of the judges had a
natural reluctance to give his son the top marks which were obviously merited.
A third opinion was provided and the judges were persuaded to give unani-
mous approval to Babbitt as the winner.
Honourable mention went to Rosen, last year's winner, and to Hall II and
THE M.L.T.S. TRIPS
Relaxation. That was what made the exam week so pleasant for those of
us who were fortunate enough to have reached an M.L.T.S. of 8070. While
the other poor juniors were sweating away in Argyle writing exams during
the day and sweating away in the evenings preparing for the next day's exams
we were relaxing.
On the first day Mr. Beedell took us to the Dustbane Company for an
interesting look at their many operations. In the afternoon we were going to
go to Parliament, but we never did quite make it in a group. Several boys did
attend the sessions on their own.
The following exam day we did this: In the morning, a two and a half
hour game of softballg in the afternoon Mr. Humphreys took us to the Air
On the third day of exams we went to play miniature golf. Mr. Tottenham
took us on that trip.
On the last day Mrs. Teron had invited us to her cottage. We were all
looking forward to the trip and certainly had a lot of fun.
Thanks to many cooperative masters we had a really great time during
THE PUBLIC SPEAKING CONTEST
A great deal of interest was aroused when this competition was announced
and it was found necessary to have Form eliminations to come up with a
final slate of 6 contestants.
The finalists were Belding, Brodie, Brookes, Carson, Johnston and Spencer.
Belding presented a relaxed and amusing account of the danger from
pickpockets, particularly in Columbia.
Brodie gave an interesting talk on E.S.P. with specific examples of this
Brookes told of the ways of keeping healthy. His talk was amusing, and
showed careful research.
Carson talked on humour, and his several examples of the subject brought
Johnston told of a personal experience with a friend whose interest was
chemistry. Judging from this account we are fortunate to have him still
Spencer's talk covered the sweep of Ancient Greece, its history and culture.
In the opinion of the judges Johnston won the competition, although all
contestants were congratulated on their high standard of speaking.
Johnston went on to further honours, as he entered the city competition
and won third place in a group of about 40 other finalists.

THE TRIP T0 AMHERST
On Friday. March 12, three Ashbury hockey teams set out by bus for
Amherst, Mass., U.S.A.
We started just after noon and stopped for a hurried dinner in Albany.
We arrived in Amherst at about 9:30 that evening.
We were then paired off and went to sleep at the houses of the boys on the
opposing teams. Our hosts were very kind.
Next morning most of the boys went around the town of Amherst looking
at universities, stores, schools, etc.
Then in the afternoon we went to play hockey. The Ashbury under 12
team played first and were defeated. The under 14 team played next and the
game ended up tied. The senior team then played and that game also ended
in a tie.
After the hockey games we were treated to a glorious banquet dinner and
we were also given life memberships in the Amherst Hockey Association.
The next morning we played again. This time our under 14 team won its
game. but the under 12 team was defeated.
Our hosts provided us with lunches and we set out for home. En route we
had dinner at a Howard Johnsons and got back to Ashbury quite late.
I think everyone had a terrific time. Apart from the thrill of playing
unknown teams, we were exposed to a wonderful group of people, increased
our knowledge of the U.S.A., and learned just a little bit more about how to
handle new situations.
The trip was a success.
THE WASHINGTON TRIP - May 18-21
The Washington trip was the fifth annual excursion the Junior School has
made. Montreal, Quebec, New York and Toronto have been the cities visited
in other years. All of the school trips have been complete successes. Here is
my account of the visit to Washington.
We left Ashbury at about 10:00 a.m. on May 18. We stopped at a side rest
area for box lunches, then continued down through the coal country to
Harrisburg, Pa. where we stopped for dinner. We arrived at the Ambassador
Hotel in Washington that evening just in time to watch the last period of the
final game of the Stanley Cup.
At 8 o'c1ock on the morning of our first day in Washington we arrived at
the side entrance of the White House. A special tour had been arranged for
this early hour. To give you an idea of the age of the White House, it wasn't
finished at the time of the inauguration of George Washington as the first
president of the United States, but it was completed by the time John Adams,
the second president, was sworn in.
On our tour of the White House we started in the East Win , which is the
most recent addition to the White House. First we entered an oval shaped
room lookin out on the south side where the President usuall reets his
3 ' 0 Y 8 c
guests. Next was the Green Room, used as a s1tt1ng room. It had a beautiful
marble mantle, a nice clock and a big impressive chandelier. Then we went
into the Red Room. Here are many portraits of the presidents. Here also are
pictures of Dolly Madison and Mrs. Kennedy. Then we walked into the state
dinin room where formal dinners are held and the President holds his ress
What I saw of the White House impressed me very much.
After the White House we walked to the Aquarium. There we found many
interesting things. None of the fish were very new to me because I had already
seen most of them before in other Aquariums, including killer whales.
After this we went to the Washington Monument. We went up in an
elevator, and most of us walked down the approximately 450 steps.
After we were all assembled in our groups again we walked to the Museum
of History and Technology. W'e saw lots of very interesting things. One was
a large steel ball attached to a long thin wire. The ball swayed from side to
side and every hour would knock over 8 little blocks placed on a large
circumference around the ball.
Uur next visit was to the Museum of Natural History which was next door.
These two museums are part of the Smithsonian complex. Here we saw some
very interesting exhibits, including the famous jewels "The Star of India"
and the "Hope Diamondw.
We had lunch in the Museum cafeteria and were joined by our guides.
Then we walked to the Capitol. It was very hot that day and everyone found
it a long and tiring walk. We went into the rotunda. Then we went through
a long corridor which had beautiful paintings on the ceiling and on the walls.
We were able to see the Senate in session. Hubert Humphrey was there but
unfortunately Mr. Agnew was not presiding that day. One of the page boys
was a page girl.
After the Capitol we got into our buses and drove to Arlington Cemetery.
On our way we stopped at the Lincoln Memorial, and passed close to the
Jefferson Memorial. Both of them I had already seen. In the cemetery we
saw John Kennedy's grave and the site for Robert Kennedy's future grave,
which is now marked only with a white cross. Then we saw the tombs of the
three Unknown Soldiers. one from the lst World War, one from the 2nd
World War. and the third from the Korean War.
After this the buses drove us back to the hotel for a swim and relaxation.
Later the buses drove us to Maryland for a good steak dinner. We went to
bed after that.
On the morning of the second day we got up later mainly because we had
more time on our hands.
We walked to the National Geographic Society where we heard interesting
things through microphones. Most of these were concerned with expeditions
which the Society had sponsored, for example Scott's adventures in the
After this we were driven to the Department of Engraving and Printing
where all the bank notes are made. Everyone's eyes were bulging just watch-
ing those sheets of notes being printed.
Then we walked to the Smithsonian Institute to see the different kinds of
aeroplanes, space craft and other things. It was most interesting and exciting.
After this we had lunch at Russler's Steak House.
After lunch we went on an F.B.I. tour which had been arranged for us
by Marion's father. We saw laboratories, pictures of different criminals and
the scenes of their crimes. Finally we had a demonstration with a revolver
and a sub-machine gun.
At the end of that tour we had free time for two hours.
We went to dinner at a very nice restaurant called the 'GBull 'n Bear".
From there we walked to Ford's Theatre where Lincoln was killed by John
Wilkes Booth. We saw the play, "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown". Then
we drove in the bus all night to get to Ottawa.
As soon as I got home my mother and I went up to our summer cottage for
the long weekend. As soon as we got there I slept for about five hours because
I was so exhausted.

THE CHESS TOURNAMENT
The 12th Annual Junior School Chest Tournament as Mr. Polk insisted
on calling itj attracted a great deal of interest. Almost three-quarters of the
Junior School entered the tournament, which must surely be a record. To
give added interest this year an Ashbury chess team from Grades 5 and 6
competed against those Grades at Rockcliffe Park Public School. We had
several individual triumphs but were defeated as a team. Wait till next year!
Here are the results of all the games played.

THE CAMPING TRIP
The day before the trip we spent one and a half hours just putting our
sleeping bags together. I had to turn my sleeping bag inside out, attach a
piece of cord and turn it back rightside in.
The next day I was driven to school by my Dad. I gathered all my gear
together and entered one of the two buses. We were dropped off at a little
dirt road after a short drive. Shouldering our packs we started our hike.
After about a mile of walking up hill my back began to get sore and my
pack to get heavy. Adding to the agony, my socks had fallen down and there
was some water in my boots. After crossing a field we entered a forest. Then
we came to a low area filled with Water. The water was about two feet deep,
and a lot of it was added to my boots. Next we started an exhausting climb
up rugged hills. Some hills were so steep you could, with heavy packs, walk
straight up. but still touch the ground with your hands. Finally we reached
camp. There was no time to rest for meals had to be cooked and tents put up.
We split up in groups, Seniors, Juniors, and the girls from Elmwood. Our
sector. the Juniors, soon got a fire going and then we started to cook our
meals. We were given packets of meat, dehydrated beans, corn and mashed
potatoes. Newbergher was carefully putting his stuff into separate pots when
Mr. Humphreys came along and dumped everything into one pot. Almost
everyone was watching his meal cook with anticipation. I was looking at it
with apprehension. I managed to wash away the taste of this mixture with
water from the nearby lake. The rest of the evening was spent washing pots
Sgt. Evans, one of the army men at the camp told us that our sleeping bags
would keep us warm for 7 hours in -700 weather. My feet were cold all night.
Next morning there was ice on the lake.
For breakfast we had dehydrated scrambled eggs and bacon. After cleaning
up we started on our last lap. This walking was not as tough because I didnit
have to carry a 20-pound sleeping bag. We ate lunch prepared by the Elmwood
girls. Eventually we got to a dirt road. Just a mile down the road was the
spot where the buses would pick us up. lvhen I arrived at the spot I fell on
what felt like rubber legs. So ended the camping trip.
It was a good experience and I learned a lot about living in the bush, even
if it was a tough trip. In two days the group covered 22 miles of rugged bush
in snow. sleet, wind, rain and fog. Perhaps I am destined to be a post man
when I grow up!
JUNIOR SCHOOL SAILING
Again this year the Ashbury sailors arrived at Lakefield feeling extremely
confident of a successful day of sailing ahead. On Saturday morning we
awoke to a beautiful cloudless day, but there was no wisp of wind. Undaunted,
the sailing races. or should I say the drifting races, started against such notable
schools as Ridley, Hillfield. Crescent and of course our host Lakefield.
The lack of wind was against us and in the morning we had sailed only
two out of the four races. In the afternoon we managed to complete the full
slate of races but unfortunately we came last.
My hat comes off to Mike Kemper fskipperj. Bruce Anfossie fcrewj and
Bill Fuller fcrewj. They all did a tremendous job considering the conditions.
Despite our lowly position we all had a most enjoyable trip.

U 'TOR SCHOOL SPORTS
The Soccer Team this year played very well. We went on several excursions
out of town in addition to playing quite a few games at home. The success
of the team was a result of the combined efforts of all the players. but special
mention should be made of Mark Josselyn's consistent goal keeping and
Blaine Johnson's scoring ability. The overall standings show that this year
was one of our better ones.

As in other years. the grueling cross country running took place at Ashbury
with Farquhar leading the pack. Although Dowling ran the fastest time
recorded for the 2-U2 mile course. 14'49". Farquhar won the cross country
championship and rightly earned his title "The Flying Ferd".
In an inter-school meet at Greenbank Public School. our senior runners
came in third out of ten schools which is excellent for such a small school
with no girls. Mr. Flynn reckons that if Ashbury ran with Elmwood in outside
competition we would do even better.
In our own Meet, the results were as follows:
AGE lst 2nd 3rd
13 yrs. Farquhar Dowling Carson
12 yrs. Beedell Babbitt Thompson

During the Winter Term a volleyball team was formed under the direction
of Mr. Babbitt. The boys were very enthusiastic and after many practices the
team entered a local tournament. They won their first game. making them
eligible for the Cup. but were eliminated on the second round.
The boys returned to Ashbury quite happy with their performance. The
short season proved to be most enjoyable for all including Mr. Babbitt. whose
enthusiasm spurred the team to quite good efforts.

THE TRACK MEET
A glorious sun was smiling on the Ashbury grounds on the day of our
annual Junior School Track Meet. Every boy in the school had entered his
name for at least one of the events except for those few whose broken legs
were still knitting after the ski season. Every member of the staff was pressed
into willing service as starter, timer, judge or recorder. There was full ,Junior
School participation and the day provided a most happy break during exam-
ination week. The morning and afternoon events were run off with the
precision always provided by Mr. Andersorfs organization.
At the end of the Meet, ribbons for lst, 2nd and 3rd place winners were
graciously presented by three Junior parents. Mrs. Belding. Mrs. Farquhar
and Mrs. Josselyn.
Here are the results:

ON THE FARM
The sounds of Dad chopping wood for the pot-bellied stove, along with the
cheerful chirps of robins quickly woke me. I dressed hurriedly, jumped
through the window, grabbed hold of a branch, swung onto a platform I had
built for this purpose. then slid down the trunk. Telling my Father I was
going, and calling my dog, I set off towards the po-nd.
Amber, my dog, and I raced through the dew drenched clover which
covered the trail to the spring-fed pond. After a refreshing dip I returned to
a delicious breakfast of porridge. pancakes and maple syrup. The syrup had
the added flavour of my hard work, as I had collected the sap from our bush
and had helped Mother many nights over the black pots of boiling. bubbling
Breakfast finished, I loaded my musket and went off hunting with Amber.
By noon I had reached the quota for our larder of three rabbits, two geese
and one duck. This would have been completed earlier if Amber had not
announced our presence with his loud, excited barks. After a lunch of cold
turkey. I headed for home.
Rounding a boulder I realized I had gone in a circle and was now on the
crest of a hill high above the farm. I could see Father plowing the garden.,
holding tightly to the plough's handles. as Jimmy, our reliable work horse,
stepped gingerly around the stumps and rocks. Mother, I could see, was

THE FUNNY CLOWN
There was a funny clown,
Whose face was very brown.
And his hair was white.
And his eyes were bright.
And his hat was blue.
Stuck on with glue.
And his nose was green,
Like you've never seen.
That funny brown clown.
LIFE'S EMBARRASSING MOMENTS
Because we are all human, we are all subject to making mistakes, and
often find ourselves in embarrassing situations. I, too, am fallible, and in the
following paragraphs are some events which made me turn quite red at the
Arriving home after a very muddy game of soccer, I went upstairs to have
a bath. After I had thoroughly cleaned myself, I got out of the tub, dried.
and went to my bedroom. As it was late I decided to put on my pyjamas then.
After searching for all of 20 seconds I decided that I couldn't find them. so
I ran down naked to the sitting room to ask my mother where they were. On
entering I got quite a shock - and from the look on her face, so did Mrs.
On another occasion I was walking the dog with a couple of friends. Toby
was not on a leash and felt the need to attend to a natural urge. Before I
could stop him. he had used someone's front lawn for his purposes. The owner
of the house stepped outside, and I was extremely nervous. The man said,
'5Thank you, but we don't need any today!" and with that he handed me a
shovel much to the amusement of my friends.
The last school at which my father taught had a firing range, which was
nearly always in use, for I saw boys going to and from it all the time. One
day I decided to go inside for surely no boys would object to a four year old
taking a look around their shooting range. I ran in yelling. "Hold it, hold it!
Don't shootli' and then ran straight out for who was inside but the Head-
master showing a few guests around the school.
Another very embarrassing moment for me was when a teacher told me to
go and fetch some chalk from Mr. Sherwood's office. I went out to get it, but
when I knocked there was no answer. I returned to class empty handed. The
teacher told me to just barge into the office and pick up the chalk. When I
knocked on the door a second time there was still no answer, so in I walked.
What do you suppose I saw? Mr. Sherwood was standing over a boy bran-
dishing a cane! I grabbed the chalk and exited fast, only to be asked what
had taken me so long.
These are just a few of my life's embarrassing moments. but I'll bet that
any one of us unfortunately has had enough to fill a book. and by the time
we die a second volume would be well filled.
No matter how hard we try to guard against these situations. they frequently
occur and we must make an effort not to be too sensitive at these times.
Out in the Wilderness.
Out in the trees.
Out comes a rabbit
Running on its knees.
Out in the meadow,
Out in the stream,
Out jumps a fish
In the middle of a dream.
IF ONLY I WERE A TYPHOON PILOT
It was midsummer 1943 and all was going well for the Allies. Another
plane and I were winging our way over the choppy Channel on a night patrol.
Suddenly I spotted a German E-boat nosing its way out of a bay on the French
The bright moonlight illuminated the E-boat and I could see that they had
spotted us already.
I cried out, 'aTalley-ho!", and flung the Typhoon into a vicious dive. My
plane plummeted downwards and the E-boat was right in my sights when I
let loose a salvo of 3-inch rockets at it. There was a huge explosion as the
rockets slammed home. When the smoke cleared we saw that the E-boat had
capsized. My partner lobbed his missles into the flaming wreck and we
notified the sea rescue chaps to pick up any survivors. We turned around and
headed for home before the whole Luftwaffe got on our tails.
When we got back to our base we agreed to share our kill and when we
made our report to the C. O.. we were credited with half a boat each.
I went to my room and caught a few hours sleep. In the morning we were
called to the briefing room. I grabbed a piece of toast on the way. In the
briefing room we were told we were going to escort some American bombers
on a raid against St. Nazaire in France.
When the briefing was over I walked to my Typhoon, '6Tiger Tiffiew. The
armourers were standing in line waiting to put the belts of ammunition into
the 4 20 m.m. cannon. I got onto the wing and climbed into the cockpit. I sat
down and admired the sleek way the plane was put together.
All around the airfield, engines were sputtering into life. A few minutes
later we were in the air. Half way across the Channel we met up with the
Yanks. They were thundering majesticly across the sky in grand procession
leaving their white streaming contrails behind them.
We got into escort formation above and behind. It was hard to keep at the
same speed as the bombers as they were flying so slowly.
As we crossed the French coast I suddenly noticed enemy fighters coming
up to intercept us. They came closer and we were ordered to take up battle
formation. Then the Folke-Wulfs attacked.
We scattered, picking out our victims. I dived on the one with the yellow
spinner. The crosshairs on my gunsight slid onto the fusilage of his plane.
I pulled the trigger and held it back for five gruelling seconds. Suddenly the
plane turned into a flaming mass of metal. It blew up in mid air.
Mr. Babbitt repeated. "Where's your prep?"
My dream shattered. I returned to the reality of an English class at
Ashbury, but it was many minutes before I was really able to unscramble the
Germans from the Grammar.
A WINTER HOME
When a bunny finds a passage in a lumber stack.
He hides there for warmth against the snow.
But in summer when the work men all come back.
He has to pack his bag and quickly go.
SMAUG THE DRAGON
The lonely mountain of the dell,
The lifeless city in the dell,
Mark the home of the dragon bold,
The stories of which have often been told.
And down there on the lake,
A merry city lies at stake,
Because of the dragon
This terrible dragon
Who killed their ancestors years ago.
Then one happy night of the feast,
Through the sky came the terrible beast.
"It's Smauglu they screamed in terror, "The dragon!"
And every guard, he dropped his flagon,
And picked up his weapon to fight.
No words can describe that terrible night
Against the dragon
This terrible dragon
Who killed their ancestors years ago.
Then, when all seemed at a loss.
Bard, their leader and fighting boss
Saw the patch that was unscaled,
And shot an arrow, while people quailed.
And from the sky the dragon fell.
To go and pay his debt in Hell.
Smaug the dragon
This terrible dragon
Who killed their ancestors years ago.
I think crows are one of the nicest birds. They are big and black. Farmers
hate them because they go into their fields and eat the corn. This makes the
farmers very mad at them. Then the farmers shoot them.
I became very interested in catching a crow. I knew where they were
nesting. That gave me a head start on them. I made many trips to the woods
where they were nesting and I kept finding feathers.
One night my Dad and I were walking through a big clump of trees. It
was such a big clump that it was easier for us to split up to look for the baby
crows. About five minutes later my Dad called me over. He had found a
baby crow sitting on a branch high up in the tree. I ran home and got my
brother to help us. My brother could not climb the tree because the branches
were too weak, so I climbed up and tried to catch the baby crow. It was very
hard but I caught him.
I brought him home and put him in a cage and left him alone for the
night. The next day he was calm. That is my story.
A LOOK INTO THE FUTURE
The year is 1981. The day is Tuesday, January 21st, and all is not well.
Is the world perfect with no wars, no pollution, no population problem?
The world is all war, and nothing but.
How it started, few people know, and nobody really cares. But whatever
did cause the war set all the continents on fire.
For some strange reason the struggle is between the continents of Africa
and the Americas on one side, against Australia and Europe. There is bitter
civil war in Asia. Antarctica alone seems to have avoided the conflict.
There is a long story leading up to the blood bath. and I do not have the
space to give you the details, but I will tell you this: War has cut the growing
population from 7 billion to 3 billion in two years.
No more is science devoted to solving the mysteries of earth and space,
now every experiment is devoted to warg constant, bloody, merciless war.
In 1981 binoculars are not used for watching nature, as once was the case.
They are now used only in sighting the enemy.
School has changed, too. Instead of learning that one apple plus one apple
equals two apples, students are taught that one H-bomb plus one H-bomb
equals fallout. The war has affected everything.
Instead of, sa , the Orr-Walton hocke cam , oun sters now attend the
. Y . . Y P Y . 5 .
Agnew-Nixon war camp. Nothing IS untouched by this inter-continental war.
Nobody lives in houses any more. Everybody inhabits bomb shelters instead.
Because of the war there are very few trees and plants left.
To someone who remembers the ways of peace, this war is extremely
However we are really in 1971 and all these events will not take place for
10 years, so live it up while you can.
The highwaymen had taken him into their hideout and had taught him
the bad ways of life. He was a good boy at heart though, always T .oking on
the bright side of things, even when his band was in trouble.
Then one day, his good intentions went too far and misled him to Doom.
He met a girl on his rovings fa habit of his, roving, and she told him she was
taking the noon stage to Dover, which was carrying twenty thousand pounds
worth of gold and silver.
The boy soon saw that his duty to God was great, and that he wouldn't tell
the thieves of his discovery. This was a sound decision, but unfortunately a
thief had overheard the conversation and he scuttled off to tell the chief of
Because of this, not only was the noon stage robbed, but every man, woman
and child aboard it was killed. The coach was burned and the horses were
captured by the thieves for future use.
The thieves soon revealed to the lad what they knew, and said he would
die. "Leave it until dawn," said he. He pleaded so hard that the pirates
finally consented to kill him on the morrow at dawn.
That night the poor lad couldn't sleep. He lay awake. listening to the
sounds of night. - to the sound of mice's feet on the wainscot. of the tired
twittering of the birds as they bedded down for the night. in their nests on
The air smelled fresh and purifying to the body. the body which lay half
afraid. half sad.
All too soon it was dawn. Then it hit that simple minded boy. that this was
God's show. His festival. His parade. His ceremony. His celebration.
The light came pouring through the air. causing birds to twitter and sing
and triggering bees to hum and to suck sweet nectar artfully, cheekily from
the flowers. The trees seemed greener than usual. the air fresher. It was too
good a morning to die.
He ate his porridge for breakfast. his last and most delicious meal. the oats
and salt going splendidly with the milk and sugar. Afterwards a black cloth
was tied around his eyes. his hands were bound. and he was ready. ready to
die. "If only I didn't have to die, if only I could live longer. if only .... "
"BangYl" The echo carried and died away. Everything started swimming
wildly, he could hear a cry of pain, perhaps it belonged to him. Finally every-
thing faded and then went black.
The next things he saw were the golden gates of heaven. waiting as it
seemed, with outstretched arms, and with a promise of a blessed contentment
that he had so seldom known in life.
TEN YEARS FROM NOW
This is the year 1981. I am still attending the University of Stockholm for
personal reasons. I spent last summer in Ottawa and the changes were remark-
Jacques Rose is now Prime Minister of Canada. Right now Mr. Rose is on
a tour of Communist countries and is presently in the United States. During
the absence of Mr. Rose, Mr. Hughy Newton, late of the Black Panthers. its
acting Prime Minister.
I took a trip to Ashbury College but was unable to get in. A National
Guardsman told me the students were rioting, and the Guardsmen were
surrounding the school.
After that I looked up some old friends. Babbitt had had an operation on
his ears and looked quite good. He is married to Sarah Farquhar with two
sons. Blaine Johnson has arthritis and is unable to walk. I was surprised to
see .losselyn on Welfare - he was so promising at school. He told me Ray
was running for Prime Minister of India.
I found the population had increased enormously. Ottawa is practically on
the outskirts of Montreal. The hippies are gone with all their beads and hair.
Drugs are also gone, since they've been legalized. I was happy to see there
was no pollution fsince there was nothing else to pollutej.
I went to see "Oh Bombay" at the Arts Centre and had a frightful
experience. The whole cast was fully clothed. Shocking way to act.
All the good old movies are back this time on television fCandy, Fanny
Hill and the restj. I went to see the movie "Jumbo the Flying Elephant".
This movie was banned in Sweden.
I suppose there will be a few more changes in the next ten years.
Hello, my name is Tiny and I am going to tell you about one of my
adventures. Of course, I was a stupid little puppy at that time and didnlt
know better than to get lost. This is how it happened.
It was a bright and sunny day and I decided to explore the land around
me. I headed toward a path which was well known to my friends to be very
adventurous. This proved to be true as you will see.
I was walking along the path very quietly. All was still except for birds
twittering and the usual small noises that you hear in the forest. Suddenly I
smelt something unusual and I decided to find out about it.
I dived into the forest with a feeling of curiosity. To my amazement I
found nothing. It took me nearly an hour to find the path again. When I
found the path again, I promised myself not to leave it.
I had been walking steadily for an hour when out jumped a rabbit and I
took off after it. It was a long chase and I was the one to give up first. When
I was chasing the rabbit, I did not think where I was going. I was deep in the
forest and it was getting late. I wished I had never decided to explore, but it
was too late now. I learned later that my master, Norman Wilcher, had
become very worried. He got ready to take a trip to the O.H.S. When he got
there he asked if there were any reports of a black and white beagle. When
they said no, he asked if they would organize a search for him. They very
graciously said yes and started right away.
It was a long time before I got up and started to find the path. I went in
three directions and then headed west. I was on a path I didn't recognize
when suddenly something came running noisily behind me. I didn"t wait to
see what it was but jumped off the path down a slope and landed on a pile of
leaves. Luckily the unknown animal could not get down the slope. I ran as
fast as I could until I reached a cleared area and flopped down.
The O.H.S. had now found some clues as to where I had gone. They had
found the path which I had travelled on.
I got up and started to walk, when through the trees I recognized the path
which I had travelled at the beginning. I now knew that I had gone around
in a circle. I started to run because I knew this would lead me home. When I
was too exhausted to run any more, I lay down and rested. Then, around the
corner came two men. They saw me and picked me up. They were taking
When we got home my master thanked them very much. I was never going
on an adventure again.
Mr. Polk teaches folk,
And he also likes to smoke.
But when the smoke
Goes down his throat,
It makes him choke,
And that's no joke.
It could be the end of Mr. Polk.
THE UNDERSEA WORLD
Oh, the splendour of it all,
Oh, the glory of it all.
Oh, the majesty and bubbling waste of it all.
The corals, the reefs
Perfect as the sweep
Of the sea.
The oysters, the pearls.
The clams and the swirls
Of the sea.
An eternity of sand
Made by God's own hand.
Touch the wet miracle
Of the sea.
And yet as it flows
In its underwater shoals
In its nooks and crannies all.
A single sprinkled light
From an oyster's shimmery white
Glows in the inky fluid
Of the sea.
And the pearl's glowing white
Brightens darkest night
The radiance will call.
And I again recall
Of the sea.

MY LOST PET
One day I was at a football game, that is my dog and I. I take my dog
with me everywhere I go. We were at the Grey Cup in Toronto. When the
game ended everybody rushed out the doors. My dog was not on a leash and
I lost sight of him. I looked everywhere but I just couldn't find him.
I hailed a taxi to drive around the city in search of my lost doggie. After a
couple of hours of no luck I paid the driver, bought some candy, and took an
O.T.C. bus home. As I looked out the window I . . . I saw my lost doggie.
I asked the driver to stop, but it was right in the middle of the highway.
When I got off all I could see was a bunch of cars.
I walked 14 miles, after which I headed for home, which was 6 miles away.
The next morning I phoned the Toronto pound. They said that they did
not have a dog that matched the description I gave.
I went through the same routine as I had the day before. Just to make sure,
I hailed a taxi and drove a little bit out of the city because you never know
where dogs can go.
Suddenly I said, '5There he is! Stop the cab!"
The first thing I saw when I got out of the car was the dog catcher and
his net. He scooped up doggie and put him into the truck. I followed the
truck to the pound, picked up doggie, and drove happily home.
My best friend stands first in his class.
He has ninety percent, whilst, alas,
With my feeble brain,
All I can attain I
Is a mark or two better than pass.
There's an unco-ordinated boy named Tom
Who went to the Senior Prom.
He tried to dance,
But tripped on his pants,
Out the door he went like a bomb.
There once was a boy named Dave
Who did not like to behave.
Though he irnproved a little,
He still was too fickle,
And dirty looks to the teachers he gave.
There was a boy named the Beetle,
Who was savagely pricked by a needle.
He cried out in anguish
For a band-aid and sandwich.
Now the Beetle is in fine feetle.
I am a boy named Pete.
I sit in the very last seat.
I sleep all the day,
No work and all play.
To get to Grade 9 will be sweet.

Who decided to work one fine day.

It soon was obsessing,
And now that boy's in 9A.
There was a young laddie named Ron,

Though he liked it that way

Who tends to day-dream all the day.
I sit quietly snoring,
The teachers imploring,
For a little more work and less play.
There was a young boy from down under,
Who made all geologists wonder.
He dug a deep hole,
With a very short pole,
And journeyed from winter to summer.

Who wished only to swim in the lake,
But there came by one day
A dismaying relay,
And so his exams he must take.
There is a boy named Mark,
To Ridley next year will embark.
He'll no longer be here.
There'll go up a great cheer,
Because he became quite a Narc.
There once was a boy in Grade 8.
Whose brother he tended to hate.
The next thing I know,
He'll still be my foe,
For Grade 9'ers the seniors will bait.
There once was a school boy named Matt,
Who wasn't too bad with a bat.
When it came to his books,
He got curious looks,
For doing his prep on a hat.
There was a lad from the Park,
Who arrived in the town via Carp,
He said, "I am sure,
Mr. Trudeau is pure,
But I'm not quite so sure about Sharp."
There once was a boy named Ten-Ton,
Who never quite got his work done.
He said in dismay,
As he munched away,
To eat is more fun than to run.
There once was a youngster named Ray,
Who did nothing all day but play,
When it came to his test.
He did not do his best,
And so now he studies all day.
Robertson would like to pass math,
But he causes his teachers great wrath,
It seems he can't win,
First Mrs. Babbitt, then Flynn,
From both he has taken a bath.
It's true that prep I ignore,
I find the whole matter a bore.
Like to enjoy myself,
Not to destroy myself.
It'll never be "Prep I adore."

Where nothing is really too cruel.
At first I was dumb,
Then things started to come.
I'll be first in the Senior School. fMaybe!l
