CLOSING REMARKS - CHAIRMAN
by the Captain of the School
Mr. Chairman, Members of the Board, Honoured Guests, Headmaster and
Staff, Ladies and Gentlemen, Students of Ashbury.
To-day is a turning-point in my life, as it is for all who have graduated
from the School and for those who are leaving not to return next year. We will
be relieved to have it all behind us, but also thankful for being fortunate enough
to have experienced life, education and sport at Ashbury. It has been unique,
trying at times, and, at others, most enjoyable. The things a boy learns at Ashbury,
whether he has use for them or not, will accompany him for the rest of his life.
For me they will be most useful.
I have attended Ashbury for seven years. This is quite a substantial portion
of my life. In that time I have seen Ashbury go through many changes, both in
the physical sense and in the attitude of the students. The physical I need hardly
mention, as proof of this change stands right behind me in the form of new
buildings and facilities that Ashbury has been crying for for ages.
Now, the students: I have witnessed at first hand the Dark Ages at Ashbury.
The days of prefects with absolute power, the days when student initiative and
individuality were unheard of. I have lived through the Revolution: I have seen
the prefects guide the student body towards total rejection of authority and
negativity in their attitude. Now, however, we approach the Golden Age of
Ashbury. The prefects no longer control the studentg instead they hope to guide
him. In the future more emphasis must be shifted toward the students. They
must be even more willing to involve themselves in the School than ever before.
My biggest complaint is directed toward the nine to five Ashbury boy who
attends the School between these hours, but afterwards releases himself from
any commitment to the School. The two words for the future Ashbury are "Total
involvement". I don't mean, however, involvement in all the compulsory functions
the School already has, but involvement in student-initiated projects. The students
must support the students. You must be prepared to involve yourselves in one
another. Try to forget about Senior School, Middle School and Junior School,
Woollcombe House and Connaught House. Think Ashbury. We have the facilities
and the personnel.
There have been some students in my past years at Ashbury who have felt
imprisoned by the School, who feel that this system is not for them, and who
rebel at the very idea of a well-ordered, although sometimes seemingly ridiculous,
set of rules. If you feel this way, Ashbury is not for you. Don't come back.
I'm sure that, with enrolment figures as they are, there would be no problem in
filling your places.
If the boys are giving 100076, so must the staff. We are fortunate in this
respect. Our staff is understanding and never begrudges its time to listen to the
student. They must, however, make a particularly hard effort to recognise boys
for their individual achievements and eventual goals. Each student should be
weighed as a separate stone, not for his position in the School.
Well, that's enough of that. On to the School Year. It is difficult to pick out
the highlights of the whole year. Only the obvious ones come up and they are
not always the most worthy of mention. However, the School made a concentrated
effort in the field of charity. We collected money, old clothing, books and stamps
to send to Qacha's Nek. To those who contributed directly or indirectly in any
way-congratulations, it was a most admirable effort. And to the Gilbert and
Sullivan production and to the one-act plays, again bravo.
The Graduation Formal this year surpassed any in the past, both in
attendance and in support from those not attending. These two factors are
important for any dance if it is to be a success, thank you to all those who helped.
These are but a few of the events which Ashbury has initiated and partic-
ipated in throughout the yearg there have been so many that it would be impos-
sible to include them all. Let it suffice to say that we enjoyed them and that
they will become the fondest of memories.
As I have said earlier, we at Ashbury this year have been fortunate in being
taught by a staff unparalleled anywhere. Unfortunately, some of the staff are
moving ong this, in itself, is good, but at Ashbury they will be sorely missed.
On behalf of the School and of the Graduating Class, I would like to wish them
every success in the future and to say thanks for all the help they have given us
A word to next year's prefects: you will find that the reward by far out-
weighs the hassle. Keep your heads up and get to know everyone. To the future
Head Boy, just keep in mind that there is a difference between being a leader
and being a celebrity. Both can stimulate action, but only the leader can control it.
On behalf of the Graduating Class and of all those here: thank you, Ashbury,
and good luck in the future.

THE ERIC BEARDMORE MEMORIAL
Eric Walter Beardmore attended Ashbury College from 1921 to 1930. He
was one of the School's outstanding athletes and played on the First Cricket Team
for four years and on First Football, Hockey and Soccer. As a Prefect he took
a leading part in the life of the School. He was a fighter pilot in the Second World
War, serving in Britain in Number One Fighter Squadron R.C.A.F., and was
discharged as a Wing Commander. During his business career he continued his
active participation in sports and particularly in encouragement of the young.
He was active in golf, tennis and squash club organizations in Vancouver, where
he lived, and was a director of the B.C. Lions. He died in 1966.
The new entrance hall at Ashbury College has been made possible through
Eric Beardmore's bequest to his old School. He will long be remembered.
His widow, Mrs. Jean Beardmore of Vancouver, unveiled the memorial
plaque on Ashbury Day, 13th October, 1973.

"Ashbury Day", October 13, 1973 was the biggest gathering in the history
of the School. Three hundred and eleven boys and over one thousand Old Boys,
Parents, Friends and invited guests came together in the quad for the opening of
the new building by His Excellency the Right Honourable Roland Michener, C.C.,
C.M.M., C.D., Governor-General of Canada.
The week-end celebrations of this Ashbury milestone started on Friday
evening with an Old Boys Dinner at the Rideau Club. The Special Guest was
Arthur D. Brain, who taught at Ashbury from 1935 to 1966 and the Principal
Speaker was the Honourable A. B. R. Lawrence, M.C., Q.C., M.P.P. C32-401.
Seventy-five Old Boys attended with the Headmaster and Staff Members as
On Saturday morning the Old Boys defeated the School at football 12 to 0
with touchdowns by David Barden 172-739 and Jim Beqaj C68-739. In soccer
the Old Boys won 7-1, Bob Millar Q59-689, scoring twice.
The rain stopped on cue for the 11.00 a.m. arrival of Their Excellencies
along the flag-lined route. The quad too was lined with flags including the flag
of each foreign country represented among the boys attending the School. The
Band of the Governor-General's Foot Guar-ds played the Vice-Regal Salute and
the hymns, and continued to provide light musical entertainment from the shelter
of a marquee.
After a welcome by the Chairman of the Board, the Address was given by
Dr. J. Tuzo Wilson, O.C., O.B.E., Sc.D., F.R.S.C., F.R.S., Principal of Erindale
College, University of Toronto, who attended Ashbury College from 1919 to
1925. He spoke of his days at Ashbury, and his comparison of how things were
then versus now graphically illustrated his theme to the boys--change is rapid
an-d inevitable, prepare yourselves for it by the broadest of education.
The Dedication was pronounced by The Right Reverend W. J. Robinson,
Bishop of Ottawa, assisted by the Chaplain. His Excellency the Governor-General
then officially opened the new buildings, and he and Mrs. Michener were con-
ducted through the School by the Captain of the School, Donald C. Paterson.
Mrs. Jean Beardmore, of Vancouver, unveiled the plaque in memory of her
late husband, Eric Beardmore 121-303. in the new entrance hall. which is dedicated
to his name.
Martin Connell L64-7lJ represented his grandfather in opening the new W.
H. Connell Biology Laboratory, Mr. Connell's donation to the School. Plaques
bearing Mr. Connell's name and that of the J. P. Bickell Foundation. who
assisted generously with the equipment, were unveiled.
During the official party's tour. His Excellency presented a photograph of
himself to the Grade Five "Gallery of Great Canadians". The class was under
the direction of Master and Old Boy Tim Tottenham 168-703 and the picture was
received on behalf of the class by Hunter Tootoo.

After lunch, Her Excellency Mrs. Michener opened the Ashbury Day Fair
organized by Mr. G. McGuire. Various games of chance and an energetic raffle
organized by Junior School Director Michael Sherwood netted some 52,000.00
for Action Ashbury.
In the evening the expanded School proved ideal for the Ashbury Day Ball
for Old Boys, Parents, and Friends. There was dancing in Argyle to Sid Holmes's
Orchestra and in the gym to the "Skylarks" Steel Band. Supper was served in
Symington Hall to two hundred and fifty with extra tables set up in the long
At Elmwood, thanks to the generosity of Mrs. Whitwill, the Senior Boys had
a very successful dance, which was also attended by many of the Old Boys.
On Sunday morning the Renewal Service was held in the Chapel, and the
Ashbury Day Weekend drew to a highly successful close.

THE ASHBURY COLLEGE ASSOCIATION
Old Boys' Association Broadened
At the Old Boys' General Meeting held on Friday, 12th October, John Gill
149-521 was elected President, Jim Smellie C62-673 Vice President and Tony
German, the School's Director of Development, Secretary-Treasurer.
Outgoing President, Jamie Fisher C58-611 proposed that the Old Boys'
Association be broadened to include Parents and members of the Staff. He noted
that as of October 1972 it had become Board Policy to provide a staffed Develop-
ment Office which would look after Association affairs in addition to fund raising.
There was a very lively discussion on this matter. A reservation was expressed
initially by Evan Gill, that the Old Boys might tend to lose their identity, but in
the discussion the feeling emerged that a broader organization could foster Old
Boys' activities such as games and reunions equally well, indeed better, because
it could maintain the administrative organization required. What was needed was
the strongest possible Association of vitally interested people to support Ashbury
College. Parents and Staff had such a vital and immediate interest. The Ladies'
Guild was cited as an example of a most effective and dedicated organization.
Ted Pilgrim quoted experience in other independent Schools. saying that in
all cases where such action had been taken the results had been positive and very
constructive. Fergus Grant proposed that past parents be included and that the
name "Ashbury College Association" be adopted. John Hooper spoke further in
support of Jamie Fisher's motion, which was seconded by Ted Pilgrim.
Finally a motion was unanimously passed:
aj declaring that the Ashbury College Old Boys' Association wished to broaden
its membership to include parents. past parents, Staff members and friends, in
order to best provide support for Ashbury College:
bb changing the Association name to "Ashbury College Association" and
CJ directing the incoming executive to invite participation by representatives of
Parents and Staff, and to proceed with this matter.
At the close of the meeting both the Headmaster and the Chairman of the
Board expressed their delight that the Old Boys had taken this initiative. Ned
Rhodes said "Participation and active interest in the affairs of the School are
what we need. Parents are the ones who are naturally in most immediate touch
and the Staff of course are really vital to the whole Ashbury Community. Old
Boys won't be submerged. We have a common interest here and a strong Associa-
tion is the means to mobilize it. This is a great step forward."
First Annual General Meeting
Sth December 1973
John Gill Association President
President-elect John Gill C49-523 took the Chair at the First Annual General
Meeting of the newly enlarged Association, with Vice-President Jim Smellie C62-
67J and Secretary-Treasurer Tony German. He reported that a committee formed
to draw up a constitution for the broadened Association was at work and would
report to the membership. In the meantime an executive committee was proposed
and was duly elected. They are:
John H. Gill-President tOld Boy 49-523
James Smellie-Vice-President and Chairman of Programme Committee
COld Boy 62-673
Tony German-Secretary-Treasurer CDirector of Developmentj
Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Mulock - CParent, President of the Ladies' Guildj
A. Kenneth Maclaren- lParentl
David W. Scott- lOld Boy 46-53l
Michael Sherwood - lMasterl
John Gill remarked on the very positive reaction of the Governors to the
newly broadened Association demonstrated by their inviting three Association
officers to take their places on the Board. Old Boys' interests would certainly
not be submerged and the events which they enjoyed would be continued and
enhanced by the new organization. The same applied to the Ladies' Guild, which
would continue its excellent work on behalf of the School. "The Association," he
said, "will strive to organize and focus the energies of everyone with an interest
in Ashbury College in the common aim of providing support for the School."
FATHER AND SON NIGHT 74
The first Father and Son night held in recent years was a great success.
Two hundred and twenty-five Ashbury fathers, boys and members of the Staff
sat down to dinner on Thursday, 7th February, and overflowed Symington Hall
into the new double classroom.
The evening started with games, and keen competition developed between
the two generations. The boys won the Curling by a narrow margin, while the
Fathers won a decisive victory at volleyball. Total points in two rousing Ball-
hockey games on the rink came out in favour of the boys. Four table-tennis
tables were busy, with the boys holding an edge on the evening's play. Sockey
had many Fathers puffing and sliding about the Argyle floor and others found
time for a game of Chess or Bumper Pool.
Steve Tanos, the results coordinator, reported final scores as Fathers 1155.
Refreshments were served in the common rooms before dinner, and after-
wards the annual Public Speaking Finals were held under the direction of the
Reverend E. E. Green.
Graham Sellers won the Gary Horning Memorial Shield for Senior Students,
while his brother Richard took the Ross McMaster Memorial Prize for the Inter-
mediate division. John Lund won the Charles Gale Prize for the Juniors. Judges
were Messrs. James A. Fisher 158-611, F. J. Neal of Ottawa University and I.
Piano solos by Jonathan Heaton and vocal solos by Michael O'Brien added
to a most interesting and enjoyable evening.
Over one hundred Fathers attended, and from their enthusiastic comments
it was concluded that Father and Son Night should be an annual event.
LEAVING CLASS SMOKER
Ashbury College Association President John H. Gill C49-523 invited the
members of the Leaving Class to a Smoker on Thursday, 13th June. This
provided an opportunity for the newest Old Boys to meet members of the
Association and to get together for a last time before going on from the School.
Several Old Boys came to join in the evening and many of the Masters dropped in.
Steve Tanos was unanimously elected Class President 1974. He will be at
Queen's and he will make it his business to keep in touch with Class of '74
members and to work with the Development Office in setting up Class reunions
Steve asks all members of the Leaving Class to let him know what their
wishes are, to keep him and the School posted up on new addresses and what
they are doing and where they are.
T0 THE LEAVERS 74: Please drop a card to the School when you
want to change your permanent mailing address. This will ensure you
get the "Ashbury News" and all announcements of Old Boys and
School Events. All Old Boys receive these automatically if we have
You are members of the Ashbury College Association without
payment of any fees. We hope you will be active. Let us know your
views. Your School sincerely asks you to keep in touch with us so
we can keep in touch with you.

When Peter and Ann Josselyn and the two hoys arrived hy trailer some five

MR. PETER JOSSELYN
Two vears ago John and Carol Boone came to us from the Province ot
Quebec. John as a returning Old Boy and Carol for her first sojourn in Ontario.
They settled in a school house at 250 Springfield Road and exercised their quiet
influence. not only amongst the boys who passed through the house. hut in many
other aspects of school life as well. John has gone to he Principal of a school in
Northern Quebec and we wish him well in this new line of endeavour.
John Cann and his wife Michele moved quietly into 330 Mariposa in Sep-
tember 1973 and John immediately made his presence felt in the Junior School.
His ability and enthusiasm were most noteworthy and he will he rememhered hy
the many boys he tatight and with whom he had contact. This enthusiasm John
is taking into the commercial field, where he is starting a business in the construc-
tion of puppets. Our best wishes go with him in this new line of endeavour.
If one were to supply an epithet for Karl Parks, it would surely be: "Karl of
the Flashing Blades"! He came from Eastern Canada and showed our hockey
teams an excellence in that particular sport that we haven't seen in quite some
time. Over and above this Karl showed the greatest enthusiasm for all aspects of
our athletic programme and contributed much to this part of the School. After
his two years' stay here it was with great disappointment that we learned that
he was going to the field of public service in the Recreation Department of the
City of Ottawa. We hope that his work there will keep him in contact with us
and look forward to his return to the School on any occasion that he can come.
Fred Graham came to the School in 1972 and. despite the limitations of
space and equipment. made a success of the Music Programme at the School.
The Christmas Carol Services. the Gilbert 8: Sullivan productions and especially
the small operettas of the Junior School gave many of us something by which he
will be remembered. Our best wishes go with Fred and his wife as they proceed
to further education at the Graduate level.

French and Spanish in addition to Music, is widely experienced as a pianist,
organist and double bass player. He has served as accompanist with Independent
Television in Britain and as orchestral manager of the National Youth Orchestra
It was about 500 chapel services ago that I arrived at Ashbury to assume the
duties of chaplain. I look back on the past five years with a great deal of
satisfaction. It has been my happy privilege to receive eight new members of the
Christian family by holy baptism and to present another sixty-one to the Bishop
for confirmation and the attendant adult privileges and responsibilities of mature
membership of the church. On five occasions it has been my ministry to use the
burial office to commit souls to the care of God. With much pleasure I have
said, "I now pronounce you man and wife" to fifteen couples. I am very grateful
to be the priest in this place.
In 1973-74 Ashbury's almsgiving amounted to S1,355:
S100 to the Ashbury building fund
S605 to various local charities
S50 to Trinity College, Toronto
S50 to Miles for Millions
S550 to Qacha's Nek, Lesotho.
Canned goods were also given at Thanksgiving and Christmas time. Expenses
have been under S5.00 and we have S31 on hand to cover the cost of shipping
books and clothing to Qacha's Nek. About S900 came in via the collection plates.
The other money was raised in various ways: forgoing Christmas dinner, Greaser
Day, individual donations and a healthy contribution from the student cleaning
company. Ashbury also collected hundreds of used stamps in support of Qacha's
Fr. Payne, the priest at Qachals Nek, writes the most appreciative letters.
He also makes a request - "Please ask that all who have made the sacrifice will
also pray that we are good stewards of their loving, caring kindness." Our relation-
ship with the several under-staffed and under-equipped schools of Qacha's Nek
is to become more personal as the Robertsons visit there this summer and also
because we have the opportunity of "adopting" a student, Holang Rapopo.
What can we say of the choir and the work of Mr. Graham! The develop-
ment of an extremely competent and pleasing choir is obvious to all. Ashbury is
indebted to Mr. Graham, an excellent organist and choir director. Our thanks
go also to the capable and faithful boys of the choir. Our gratitude is also
directed to the servers for their efficient and devoted efforts. Special mention
must be made of Ed Cahn, this year's chief server. Ed has been a truly dedicated
servant of the sanctuary. Staff wives rallied this past year under the capable
leadership of Mrs. Boone to take care of the sanctuary. They did a wonderful
job and we thank them very much. Often the scriptures were read beautifully
and intelligibly as students and staff shared in reading. Matron's concern for the
Chapel was obvious. Merci.
As far as I am concerned the most significant thing about my involvement
in the life of Ashbury has been the formation of friendships. This is likely to be
more true for students. Leavers will probably cherish for years to come the
valuable and beautiful friendships made at Ashbury.
"Think of the importance of friendship
in the education of men.
It will make a man honestg
it will make him a herog
it will make him a saint.
It is the state of the just dealing
with the just,
the magnanimous with the magnanimous,
the sincere with the sincere,
man with man."
Ashbury experienced the humble beginnings of a band this year. Although
it performed publicly only twice, it met under the guidance of Mr. Brookes on
all available Mondays. It is to be hoped that, by the time the ranks have swelled,
a full-fledged group will become a permanent component of the Ashbury Musical
In the Junior School, "Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo" became the
second presentation of the biblical-jazz strain. Its performance was a landmark
in that every enrolled student took part, rather than the selected 'good" voices.
Perhaps completion and presentation of "Holy Moses" will follow shortly . . .
"H.M.S. PINAFOREU AT ELMWOOD
This year the Ashbury-Elmwood Musical Club brought a welcome ray of
light-hearted charm into the gloom of February with a highly successful "Pinafore"
to add to the list of Gilbert and Sullivan favourites which we have enjoyed during
the last few years.
When the curtain rose on Act One, a round of applause paid just tribute
to the excellent set, the effect of which was enhanced by an authentic ship's
wheel, generously lent by the War Museum.
There was no lack of talent on the stage. Michael O'Brien and Gordon Howe
as Ralph Rackstraw and Captain Corcoran respectively, sang well and acted
convincingly, confirming the favourable impression which they created in last
year's production of "The Gondoliers".
Peter Josselyn brought a wealth of vocal and dramatic command to the role
of Sir Joseph Porter. As Stage Director, Mr. Josselyn at all times secured an
effective stage picture, skilfully overcoming the limitations imposed by the small
Diana Conway nobly rose above the handicap of a heavy cold and gave a
delightful performance as Josephine, displaying considerable vocal ability, notably
in her second act aria.
John Roy gave a highly commendable portrayal of Dick Deadeye, even
if his sinister appearance was at times modified by an involuntary smile. Kathy
Zimmerman was well in character as Hebe, Sir Joseph's First Cousin, while
Mary Smylie, a somewhat youthful-looking Little Buttercup, nevertheless sang
with charm. Claude Pardo entered wholeheartedly into the role of Bill Bobstay
and Victor Munteanu made a pleasing contribution as Bob Becket.
The chorus sang with commendable precision, even if the tone of the female
voices was at times rather thin.
Throughout the evening a fine standard of enunciation was maintained,
with agreeably few lapses, by all those on stage.
For the generally high level of this production a large measure of credit
must go to the stage, wardrobe, make-up and scenic staffs.
The highest praise is due to the Musical Director, Fred Graham, and to the
Assistant Musical Director, Lorna Harwood-Jones, for achieving so spirited and,
at the same time, so secure a performance.
SPEAKING - DEBATING
Ashbury continues to maintain a high level in the area of oral communica-
tion. Within the School the following public speaking winners were declared:
Junior School - John Lund
Middle School - Richard Sellers
Senior School - Graham Sellers
Final selection of the first place speakers was made at a most successful and
enjoyable Father and Son evening. Judges were Mr. J. Fisher, Mr. F. Neal and
Mr. I. Stoddard.
Although unable to take part, Ashbury was honoured by being invited to
participate in an international debating tournament in Toronto. For the third
year in a row, the School walked off with the Ottawa Journal-Ottawa University
Debating Trophy. Debaters were: Gordon Howe, Nicholas Polk, Matthew
Rowlinson and Graham Sellers.
Jeffrey Beedell, John Lund, Victor Munteanu, Nicholas Polk, Graham Sellers
and Richard Tervo represented the School in outside competitions. John Lund
went all the way to the Provincial Finals and Victor Munteanu to the Eastern
At the year end "Smoker" Donald Paterson rose to the occasion with a
fine impromptu speech. This is the kind of evidence which supports Ashbury's
emphasis on the oral communication arts.

ASHBURY PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPANY
The company was formed in late December from the Photography Club
headed by Mr. Hyatt. It was helped by a generous loan from A.S.Co. and 335
shares were sold to staff and students at 351.00 each.
However, as is the case with any aspiring business, it was a difficult year.
Orders came slowly and several employees chose to quit during the course of
time. In the end the bulk of the work was left to a handful of members.
When our books were reviewed, the future of the company looked grim
indeed. However, the shareholders voted to keep their investment in the company
for next year and to accept a dividend only, thereby saving the business.
We hope to have more success in the coming year and to bring the joys of
taking and developing pictures to more students.
Our thanks go to all who have helped in any way in assisting the company.

ASHBURY CLEANING COMPANY
This year has seen another phase with regard to student companies. The
Cleaning Company is now a separate, student-operated entity. Under Ronald
Marchant CPresidentJ, Claude Pardo tManagerJ and Stephen Jay tSecretary-
Treasurerl, A.S.Co. has had a successful and productive year. Owing to the
new extension of the School, the company was able to clean a greater areag this
created new and bigger jobs for the students. The help of Mr. Heed and Mr.
Penton also worked to the benefit of the School.
Shares were sold to the staff and students at S1.00 per share. The economic
success of the company enabled it to present a 756722 dividend by the end of the
year. The wages of the workers were set at 51.25 an hour at the start of the year.
This was later raised to 31.50 an hour.
The success of the Cleaning Company has given valuable experience to many
of the students. It has been a good yearg let us hope that this success continues
into the next school year.
R. H. MARCHANT,
ASHBURY TUCK-SHOP COMPANY
This year was the Tuck-Shop's first under student management. Despite
rapidly increasing food prices, we managed to keep our prices downg this accounts
for our small profit margin this year. Fortunately, we are still "in the black."
During the year we saw the books and records of the Tuck-Shop pass from
Mr. Heed's hands to those of Ted Marshall and the Manager. We paid the School
for Ted's salary as well as the rental of the Tuck-Shop area.
Shares were sold at 51.00 eachg by the end of the year we were able to pay
a 5596 dividend to the shareholders.
OUTDOOR EDUCATION AT ASHBURY COLLEGE
There has been considerable progress in developing our outdoor facilities at
Ashbury College. One of the temporary classrooms was moved to the Harris
Farm near Mont Ste-Marie, Quebec, which is 50 miles north of Ottawa via
Highway 11 in a beautiful wild area.
Mr. Harris, who was formerly with Youth Hostels, has decided to keep his
600 acres in their natural state of wilderness. The area includes a mile-long lake
with 400-foot hills surrounding it. Canoe routes lead into Heney, Pemichangan,
Poisson Blanc and 31-Mile Lakes, which provide two-day, three-day or one-week
trips for the boys.
Adirondack shelters are available on the Harris property for winter and
summer camping. These are log, open-front shelters where one can build a fire
in front for warmth and cooking.
Don and Fergus Maclaren have allowed us access to their company's limits
adjacent to the Harris property, and this has given us a large area for hiking,
orienteering and exploring.
Another of the portable classrooms was moved by Dr. H. Weber to his farm
near Cantly in Quebec, with the agreement that our cross-country ski team would
have access to his excellent cross-country course at any time. Dr. Weber, a geo-
physicist, has done a great deal for cross-country skiing in both the competitive
and leisure aspects.
In addition, a large room will be set up in the Beedell barn on a farm near
Cumberland. This will allow those on short trips to visit the farm and have
overnight accommodation. Younger students can then experience overnight stays
in Adirondack log shelters situated in the woods, in winter, spring or fall, and
still have the option of returning to the barn if they can't cope with the elements.
The barn obstacle and adventure course should be completed by next winter
as well as new orienteering courses. We have purchased 20 Arctic sleeping bags,
which will allow us to stage winter survival courses next year.
Basically, my philosophy on the outdoors is that it should be adventure-
oriented, but with learning situations present. These learning situations may be
in the form of trust between people, co-operation in a group, chores shared and
done because of peer pressure, or self-confidence gained through physical accom-
plishment. I am a firm believer in the Outward Bound principles and we shall
be developing programs somewhat similar as time and money permit.
We plan to include rock-climbing when suitable instruction can be found.
I feel that it is a great moulder of self-confidence and trust for your fellows
which many boys lack.
This year we have taken trips to Gatineau Park and stayed overnight at
"Lake Ramsay" and "The Haven", which are operated by N.C.C We have had
one-day trips to the Beedell farm and to the class-room at the Harris farm. The
cross-country ski enthusiasts have used the Weber Farm for practice and also
helped prepare the Cross-Country Marathon Trail under the guidance of Mr.
Niles and Mr. Anderson.
Transportation has created a few problems and some three-day expeditions
had to be cancelled as a result.
We hope that transportation problems will be solved and that more people
will be able to participate in Outdoor Education at Ashbury College.
THE "UPPER CRUST"
The first year of Ashbury's horizontal division of boarders is over and
leaves one with mixed feelings. That the experiment has been successful is, I
believe, beyond doubt, but nevertheless there remain the mixed feelings.
The absence of the first, second and third year boys on the top flat gave me
the impression that I somehow knew fewer characters than I had done in previous
years. Without the least prejudice to the seniors under my charge this year, there
was a noticeable deficit in the variety of both vice and virtue. If a "good night"
at half-past nine or ten o'clock was lacking, or a dispute to arbitrate as to whether
this type of automobile excelled that, so too were lacking minor irritants such as
exhausted pieces of chewing-gum adhering reluctantly to desks or bed-frames.
I mean that each age group has, usually, its own degree of sophistication in terms
of crime and positive contribution. Several of the more responsible seniors
expressed the same opinion, that they felt that the gap between themselves and
the lower years had widened, and that this in itself was unfortunate.
However, these same students agreed that the bonuses more than compen-
sated for any loss, and I cite their biggest 'fpro", which is that, when a group of
young men of the same age are put together in comparative isolation, they tend
to become much more aware of social differences and obligations. To be more
specific, I liked little courtesies which became very apparent, such as knocking
on another student's door and waiting to be asked to enter, I liked the countless
conversations which took place where students listened to other points of view
on a wide range of topics without attempting to bulldoze through their own, I
liked hearing constructive ideas on how certain little innovations might have been
made to improve conditions for all concerned, and few of these were selfish in
nature, I liked the responsible way in which they handled the privilege of smoking
in the common-room, however open to criticism the habit may be, I liked too
the generally r.esponsible attitude towards their studies adopted by the vast
majority of the students, and I even appreciated the way in which those who were
less responsible in this sphere refrained from disturbing their more conscientious
'fLikes" imply "dislikes" but in all honesty few come to mind. To settle for
one, and let this be a message to all to whom it may apply next year, lack of
punctuality is not some status symbol to be aspired to and attained by those who
eventually reach the lofty heights of the third floor! The very nicest that can be
said of it is that it is a lack of consideration and courtesy. Enough said!
I feel that perhaps a few words ought to be said on discipline and atmosphere,
I -doubt very much that it can be done at all adequately in just a few lines. Suffice
to say this, that one of this year's students, a newcomer- to year five, was bold
enough to suggest to me at the end of the fall term that the "pleasant atmosphere
is a result of your Cmyj attitude" or words to that effect. What he was really
saying was that in his case it was "a fair copi' and he didn't really mind sanding
down desks on a Saturday morning. I suggest, as I suggested to that particular
student, that atmosphere does not depend on discipline, but that the two are
inter-dependent. Come to Ashbury at the beginning of a year prepared to give
and you will get a great deal out of it. You will find yourself surrounded by a
group of your own age who will stimulate you to bring out the best in yourself,
whatever that best may be. You will also be tempted to have that one extra beer
on a Saturday night of course! Take advantage of the first and, if you have to,
learn from the second, you really are beginning the year with a priceless oppor-
tunity. Ask any Old Boy. lf you do this, and are conscious of what you are doing,
then the atmosphere must be good, but you must create it, it can not be imposed
upon you. This year it was good, next year it could be better.
Discipline? A fairly large number of young men living in a confined com-
munity must inevitably be subject to certain restrictions or terms of reference,
although within the community you are all and must be individuals. This is easy
to understand, and the general attitude towards this has been most commendable.
Bear in mind, however. that if you wish to retain your individuality. then at times.
from my own point of view. the punishment should fit, not the crime, but the
individual. Enigmatic? Think about it!

This season is somewhat difficult to compare with the sensational one of last
year. Many of the first team having left, as was evidenced in the Old Boys' line-up
fthe whole back-field had reversed sidesj, we were a smaller, less experienced
football club. To make matters worse, we suffered many key injuries. Our cap-
tain, Peter Copestake, was injured before the season got under way, injuries to
Steve Tanos, Dave Leigh, Gerry Anapolsky and Doug Ross left the team short,
not only on strength, but also on numbers.
However, there were glimmerings of hope for next year: Hugh Christie
started to read defensesg Stephen Rigby began to run down-field and not only to
the side-linesg Ian Bleackley, Jeff McNeil and Rick Johnson made many fine
plunges through the line, while Rick Childers and Dave Godsell showed how to
catch a ball in the middle of heavy traffic. Claude Pardo, Mike Moore and Peter
Croal were stalwarts on the line, even when they were nursing injuries. Andy
Moore showed a fine running style after he learned to hang on to punt returns.
and the whole team showed signs of greatness - unfortunately, in different games.
It has been said that football builds character, it also shows the absence of
character. It is a team game only for individuals who are strong enough to take
on the responsibility of eleven others. This season was not one for rejoicing over
victories, but rather one rich in the rewards of character development.

As usual the Second Football Team obtained a perfect record. In the tradi-
tion of years past all the games were lost. One look at the statistics, though, will
show that undoubtedly the team improved and performed in a more efficient way
as the season progressed.
Because the team this year was composed of a large number of Year One
students, l feel that the potential exists for a really great team next year.
However much all the training and practice were hated by everybody, all
was made worthwhile by the number of games we were able to play. These
amounted to more than in any previous year. They gave us experience not only in
football but also in the proper way to lose.
We had three scorers this year. Benedict scored a touchdown against St.
Hubert's, Bejkosalaj scored one against Hudson Heights and this was converted
Although we didn't have a successful season we had an enjoyable one, and

This season was not a very good one. It looked as if it would take much
hard work to form a strong unit, especially since eight players from last year's
team had departed. Owing to the late start of the school year, the players had
only a couple of days of practice before playing their first four games, they had,
therefore, hardly enough time to know their positions and to know the other
players on the team.
The first game we played was against Tech., to whom we lost. Tech. finished
first in our division with an undefeated record. We lost two and tied one of the
next three games. As the season went along, the team began to work together as a
unit. Even so, we were unable to come up with a win. We seemed to bog down
at a certain point in the game, which allowed the opposition to tie or win the
Then there were the ritual games against the Old Boys, Bishop's and Stan-
stead. We lost to the Old Boys, tied with Bishop's in a very exciting game and de-
feated Stanstead. In these last two games our team played better than ever before.
I was happy to see that the spirit of the team, even though it had won only one
game, never died. This spirit helped us to defeat the Masters, 6-4, to finish off
The top scorer was Leslie Zunenshine. His two goals gave us the win over
I would like to thank Mr. Anderson for all his help and perseverance during
the season. To next year's team, all the success possible!

This season was highlighted by few victories and overshadowed by such
embarrassing losses as 1-9 to one of the better city league teams. This can be
attributed to the fact that many of our last year's resources were promoted to the
first team in order to fill their depleted ranks.
In these circumstances our coach. Mr. McGuire. ably coped with the handi-
caps and successfully trained a team in which Year 1 rookies predominated.
Statistically, we were a losing team. but at least a spirited losing teamg this was
demonstrated when we vanquished Bishop's. Unfortunately. we missed the oppor-
tunity of competing with the Old Boys this year, but we anticipate more support
next season and a return of this friendly match.
Some consolation can be derived from the fact that next year's team will be
sprinkled with seasoned veterans and it can only do better.

A very successful year was recorded by the First Hockey Team. as it won
seven games, lost only three and tied two. The team was smaller this year, and.
looking back on the previous season. it was decided not to enter the Ottawa High
School League. This proved no doubt to be a wise decision in that. many times
during the season, players from the second team were called upon to fill out
The season began very well, the first four games being wins against Highland
Park Ctwoj, Lakefield Seconds and Champlain High. The only real low point of
the season was the week-end tournament at L.C.C., where we tied Stanstead and
then lost to L.C.C. and B.C.S. It appeared that our team was not in the same
condition as the others, as we had some unlucky breaks, a few injuries and just
were not able to come back late in the game.
A few more games were scheduled, Ashbury defeating Selwyn House, losing
to a greatly improved Highland Park team, and managing only to tie 2-2 with the
Masters. It must be explained, however, that the Masters were able to produce
a team only by bringing in a ringer to play goal, he must have stopped a break-
away from every member of the first team.
The team regained its form and played brilliant hockey against the Old Boys,
defeating the young Old Boys 5-0 and losing to the older Old Boys 2-lg this,
however, was due only to an early ending of the game. In the round the firsts
defeated the Old Boys 6-2.
The Most Improved Player award went to our goal-tender, George Jeffrey,
and the Most Valuable Player award was received by our captain, Ian Bleackley.
Looking ahead to next season is very much like reading horoscopes, but, IF
all who are eligible to play next year come back, it should be a very good season.

This was a very good season for the Second Hockey team. A good effort
was put in by all, especially by the defense led by our captain, C. Veilleux.
As usual, the seconds won more than they lost, but, more important, a sense
of team-work was developed to a particularly high degree.
The scoring line of Farquhar, Robertson and Fuller was instrumental in
providing the winning goal in more than one game. They were also called upon
to assist the first team for several games.
Even though many of this year's second team will be going to the first team,
a solid nucleus remains to enable the seconds to be strong again next year.

Owing to a combination of bad weather and the loss of several of our more
experienced racers, this year's ski season was not as successful as the preceding
one. Poor snow conditions were the rule. and no doubt many of our novices felt
that either skates or canoes would have been more effective means of travel than
the edgeless skis they were obliged to use. However. there were still those
occasions when conditions were good. when the wax worked and when the beauty
of the winter countryside restored our faith in the virtues of skiing as a sport.
Our racing results were respectable if not spectacular. The season began
with the team winning the cross-country event of the Art Lovett Memorial Ski
Meet, which included all the Junior Varsity Teams in the Ottawa area. This was
particularly satisfying, as the team's success was the result of a good showing by
virtually all members. as opposed to rather spectacular performances by one or
two individuals, which has sometimes been the case in the past.
While such a beginning seemed to bode well for future events, this was not
to be the case. In fact, we were only to participate in one other race-a high
school meet held at the Weber Farm. This time some individuals, notably Patrick
Knight, registered good times, but the team as a whole placed midway down the
list of schools entered.
The Independent School Meet, to be held at Bishops this year. was cancelled
owing to poor weather conditions. This was a disappointment. as that meet has
been traditionally regarded as the most important of the season.
In conclusion, the Canadian Ski Marathon must be mentioned. Given the
increased emphasis on cross-country in recent years, it was felt that some skiers
from the School should enter this rather spectacular long-distance event. Those
that did participate were undoubtedly exposed to aspects of the sport totally
unknown till then: blisters, exhaustion and also a sense of real exhilaration. While
our achievements were again modest, about twenty-five miles each, the experience
sparked an interest which should yield better results and a greater number of
participants in the coming years.
Our annual encounter with Bishop's was called off this year, leaving us with
only the Ottawa High School League and the Tiny Hermann Bonspiel for com-
petition. We were eliminated early in the bonspiel and won about half our league
games. The Chaplain looked after the school team of Robert Walker fskipl, Len
Benfell tthirdj, Michael Lynch-Staunton Csecondl, Peter Steacy Cleadl and
Mr. Boone supervised recreational curling for a number of students. In the
annual house competition Connaught was again successful.
This year the Ashbury Curling Club enjoyed a moderately successful season.
The younger students had a very enjoyable time and most of them acquired a
high level of skills under the watchful eye of Mr. Boone. One or two novice
members even made the School team on occasion and gave a good account of
With plenty of ice available, it was disappointing to see the somewhat
apathetic response from the senior students, as their experience and leadership
had been counted on to produce better league results. Perhaps we should, in
future, continue to emphasize more junior participation and limit senior play
to those willing to give of themselves throughout the season.
Mr. Green handled League play in addition to participation in Bonspielsg
his work, as well as that of Mr. Boone, was much appreciated.
For the second consecutive year members of Ashbury College were to be
seen stumbling across Rockcliffe Park. Despite unfavourable snow conditions
throughout much of the season, we managed to get out every Tuesday, Thursday
and Friday. Sometimes we would just stay in the park and roam around, looking
for good hills to slide down. At other times, however, we would walk for long
distances along the river, exploring the many caves and pillars formed by huge
pieces of ice.
Another favourite pastime was trying to climb up the river banks with snow-
shoes on. That is an experience in itself.
Snowshoeing was a lot of fun and it gave us a chance to get out and breathe
some fresh air. Our thanks go to Mr. Hyatt, who organised and participated in

ANNUAL OLD BOYS HOCKEY
Saturday 9th March
Once again this event proved to be a great success. Old Boys of the School
gathered from near and far to renew old acquaintances, to make new ones and
to put on the rusty blades to test their forgotten skills on ice.
Both teams played with vigour and determination and when the dust had
settled Ashbury's first team emerged the victor with a combined score of 6-2.
In the first of the 2 games played the Old Boys were soundly defeated by
a score of 5-0. In the second game Jimmy Dodds' 2 goals led the Old Boys to a
2-1 victory over the School's first team.
Following the games which were played in CFB Rockcliffe arena, refresh-
ments were enjoyed at the School.
SPRING TERM RUGBY
If a North American went over to Britain, France, New Zealand, South
Africa, Australia or even the Argentine these days, to an independent school,
and started to expound on the virtues of "football" over "rugby", he would
probably be lynched.
Optimistically presuming, however, on the extended hospitality of my foot-
balling colleagues here, I venture to express my delight at the spectacle of
students hurtling up and down the games fields throwing around an overgrown
football, and tackling each other with crippling conviction non-stop for forty
minutes without the hindrance of face masks or any other type of padding.
Enough verbosity! The rugby experiment, the second, was an unqualified
success. Seventy-two students were divided into four groups according to size
and age, and played for forty minutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, after having
first seen "the real thing" on films on loan from various embassies.
Statistics show that, in the inter-House competitions which closed the season,
Woollcombe won three matches to Connaught's one. Statistics don't show that
the boys seemed thoroughly to enjoy the impromptu nature of the game, where
quick wits and a little courage count for more than anything else. Let it be
put on record too that a fair degree of skill was exhibited. I was frankly surprised
at the latent talent which revealed itself.
We hope to continue next spring with an enlarged programme, possibly
with a view to raising a team, if sufficient interest is shown, to play one or two
exhibition games. Who knows? It might just be the game of the future here
TRACK AND FIELD
This year proved to be one of the most successful in the history of Track
and Field at Ashbury. Twenty-four boys turned out for the programme and, of
these, eighteen competed in the Ottawa City Regional Track Meet. Nine of these
students qualified for the City finals.
Patrick Knight, Jeffrey Beedell, Raymond Ng, Claude Pardo and John
Biewald all qualified for the Valley finals. All in all, the year proved to be a very
successful one, not only in the numbers that qualified for the Regional City and
Valley Meets, but also in the turn-out for the Track and Field programme. Who
knows what next year will bring? It looks as if we have something on the move.
For the first time in five years we did not have our regular winter swimming
programme. A structural defect resulted in the C.F.B. Rockcliffe pool being
closed for the winter.
We were fortunate, however, in being able to use the Y.M.C.A. pool for
one afternoon a week until Christmas, and then the Champagne pool on a
similar basis. It was at the latter pool that we held our inter-house swim meet
this year. It was a neck and neck struggle until the all-important final relays,
when superior organisation enabled Connaught to win by 253 points to 232.
From the point of view of records it was our most successful meet ever, and
thirteen new times were set.
We did not enter a team in the city meet this year because of lack of
training facilities. Matthew Marion and Stewart Gray, however, did exceptionally
well in the individual events. These two, together with Arnie Mierins, make up
the most promising group of swimmers we have had in recent years. All three
train and swim competitively with local clubs.
The Cycling Club had a very good year under the direction of Mr. Anderson
and Mr. Boone. Nineteen boys were registered in the Clubg of these, ten partic-
ipated every time. Various routes were used: out to Hog's Back, along the Western
Parkway, and there were timed trips around the Manor Park oval.
Despite the large number of rainy days, the Club and Staff members
obtained much enjoyable exercise and a better idea of the many facilities
available in Ottawa for the cycling enthusiast.
Almost 50 students signed up for tennis as their spring sport. About one
third were beginners and around a dozen were very good players. Although we
were rained out on several days, the real impediment to any success with tennis
is the lack of facilities. Until Ashbury has its own set of tennis courts and a
practice wall we can only include tennis in our sports programme in a token way.

VISIT TO THE HOLY LAND
Cruising the Mediterranean in March has become a tradition. Last year's
Ashburian gave a full account of the 1973 trip. The 1974 trip was similar. We
flew to London and stayed in a hotel before flying on to Naples, where the S.S.
Nevasa was waiting for us. After trips to Rome and Pompeii we sailed to Itea,
Greece, which allowed us to visit Delphi. Heraklion and Knossos on the island
of Crete were visited with much interest and pleasure.
It seemed out of place to be carefully examined by security police in Haifa -
the gateway to the Holy Land. Haifa is a busy, attractive, port city watched over
by the heights of Mount Carmel. It's an impressive drive to Jerusalem. Once
infertile land has been transformed by Israeli ingenuity into good crop-bearing
soilg the oranges given us at a packing plant were ample proof.
Although a great multi-racial city, Jerusalem is the centre of the Christian
heritage. As pilgrims we walked the Via Dolorosa, visited the Mount of Olives,
rested in the Garden of Gethsemane, prayed in the Upper Room. We were also
able to kneel at the birthplace of Christ in quiet Bethlehem, a few miles from
Jerusalem. We also found time to haggle with souvenir vendors and be amazed
at the merchandising style.
Another tour took us through lower Galilee to Nazareth and the place
where the Holy Family lived. We saw Cana. It was hard to believe, as we stood
on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, that the Golan Heights are a centre of strife.
It was not so hard to believe when we saw the bomb shelters on a kibutz. The
river is certainly not mighty or picturesque, but still it was a thrill to wade in
A beautiful sail in gorgeous weather brought us to Piraeus, from which
we investigated ancient and modern Athens. We flew home from Greece, stop-
ping for another visit in London.

J. D. BEESACK
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF ELLIOT LAKE
Shots echoed down the still streets of Elliot Lake, and the shrill cry of a
woman in distress issued from somewhere inside the modest branch of The
Royal Bank. Then two masked men rushed out in a hail of police bullets to a
waiting car. As the alarm clanged loudly the car raced off in a cloud of smoke
and burning rubber. A police car had only just arrived, and the two constables
took off in hot pursuit of the black sedan, now speeding off down highway 180
fSouthJ. Other police cars pulled up in front of the building and officers rushed
into the bank, finding a badly wounded robber in his death throes lying in
the door. An ambulance screeched to a stop, and by now a large crowd of
bystanders had gathered to view the scene. Newspaper and radio reporters
clamoured for a story in one corner of the crowd. Soon a rather shaken bank
manager emerged to make a statement to the hushed crowd. The reporters bunch-
ed around him. He began to speak:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, as you all know, the bank has been robbed." A
series of giggles ran across the crowd and then silence. The reporters were busy
scribbling notes into small pads with short pencils. He continued: "As yet, even
I do not know the extent of the crime. I would estimate that approximately
100,000 dollars were taken. Also, several safety deposit boxes were broken into
and their contents removed."
A rumble of voices shot through the crowd, but were silenced when the
manager indicated that he wished to speak again.
"All money or personal possessions lost will be replaced by the Royal Bank
of Canada. I have nothing more to say. The bank will remain closed for the
remainder of the day. Thank you."
The manager returned to the innards of the bank, oblivious of the crowd
and the reporters, who were stopped by policemen as they tried to follow him.
Other policemen attempted to disperse the crowd, a car with speaker-horns on
top bellowed orders to them.
Inside the bank, now bustling with activity, the manager dashed back and
forth between tellers, policemen rushed in and out and the accountants could
be seen counting money, cheques and receipts.
Ties were loosened and windows opened to allow what little air there was
to circulate. The clanging alarm bell had been silenced and the sounds of a warm
summer dropped down upon the busy people in the bank, as they settled down
to counting, checking and figuring.
Some reporters remained huddled around the entrance, waiting for a story
to filter out, several small boys had joined them also and played around them.
Only one police car remained, and three inspectors sifted through the
evidenceg the other policemen had returned to routine duty. For them, as with
most other members of the community, it was to be a normal dayg for those in
and around the bank, it was anything but.
Several people arrived at the bank throughout the day. Some had heard
of the incident from friends or neighbours and come to see what was happeningg
others had not, and were coming to do regular banking. All of them were
politely turned away.
No break was taken for lunchg the work continued until late afternoon,
when the heat was intolerable. Soon some employees were seen to leave. They
said little, if anything, to the disappointed reporters. All the remaining employees
looked forward as never before to closing time but, even then, some remained.
The manager was last to leave. No reporters were present to see his exit. In fact,
the streets were as quiet as when he had arrived that morning. Life went on as
usual in Elliot Lake. To the unknowing eye, nothing had happened at all.
Constables McGuire and Cooke heard the alarm bell clang as they drove
their beat along Elizabeth Avenue. Turning quickly in that direction, they saw
the two masked men run to their getaway car and accelerated quickly to catch
the black sedan as it pulled out to the highway. Constable Cooke grabbed the
microphone and radioed for help. The last he saw of the bank was a second
cruiser pulling up to the front door.
McGuire and Cooke both knew that the sedan had little place to go, but
had to keep up with it so that the criminal would not duck into a bush road.
They radioed ahead to get O.P.P. cruisers from Blind River and Spanish to
block off the road. They travelled the 18 miles to highway 17 in less than 10
minutesg the trees along the road were but a blur to McGuire, and he almost
lost control of the car near Depot Lake, but regained it in time to continue the
chase. As he neared the intersection of the two highways he could make out
three police cars stretched across the highway, blocking it completely. He slowed
the cruiser but the sedan raced on. In a hail of bullets it plowed broadside into
one of the cruisers, bursting into flames and instantly killing all three of the
occupants. The policemen watched helplessly as the bodies were fried in the
Within 15 minutes a fire truck from Elliot Lake arrived. A tow truck from
Connally's Texaco across the highway removed the car bodies from the road,
while an officer from Spanish directed traffic around the accident, oblivious of
the beady eyes, looking for blood, in the passing cars.
Soon the road was clear, the wrecks were displayed on the front strip of
Connally's gas station and jus-t a black stain on the road remained as testament
to the incident.
That, too, would soon fade and finally disappear.
A backward glance
To faded frescoes, parched with age.
Familiar tears, forgotten laughter,
And lips that smile their lies,
A crystal voice, a soothing tone:
"Life is a bird, my son,
The road is paved with gold."
A forward look
To sterile cubes deceased in youth.
Forsaken gods, abandoned vision,
And eyes that bleed their truthsg
A gaslit street, an angry cloud:
"Life is a snake, my friend,
The ditch is full of slaves."
Now is the time that was and shall beg
A trembling foot which ventures on the swaying rope,
A synthesis of past and future,
And memories that masquerade as hope.
The insects hum, the birds soar,
The fish swim, the animals quietly sleep.
Throughout the forests there's not a peep.
The axes swing, the trees fall,
The buildings riseg urban sprawl.
Here I sit thinking . . . waiting patiently for an idea to pop mysteriously
into my brain. In front of me sits my clock, humming gently as it counts off the
seconds, lost in pursuit of some hidden inspiration. The white page mocks me
with its virginity, and reminds me of others more articulate than I. Strange little
drawings appear on my page, like paint splashed across canvas by some frustrated
artist. My mind wanders through the dusty halls of the intellect, searching for that
one thought which will give meaning to the aimless movements of my pencil.
The doodles grow like flowers in spring slowly to engulf my page. Still no idea
Then the pencil suddenly stops its aimless circles. It quivers with unknown
excitement as words leap from its leaded tip. One, two, three lines of seemingly
astounding inspiration appear upon the page in rapid succession. The pencil
stops and surveys its work quietly. The clock is still ticking off the minutes.
Somewhere a toilet is flushed, giving a somewhat absurd 'thumbs down' on the
newly born thought. Then, as if in answer to the sound, a dirty hand appears
and administers the sentence with a crushing deliberateness.
Another crisp new page appears to challenge the now dulled pencil. My
eyes search the walls eagerly for something to silence the page's empty laughter.
The walls are bare, save for some pinned notices and one rusty old sword.
Carefully I scrutinize the sword, wondering after its owner. Somewhere deep in
my brain a door opens, freeing tales of knights in shining armour saving the
poor from the evils of the unjust. My pencil springs out of its stillness attacking
the mocking purity of the page with renewed fury. Slowly, under the careful
control of the mind, a story unfolds upon the page. A handsome young knight,
cutting down all adversaries with his mighty broad sword, frees his true love
and innocent peasants from the cruelty of the Black Knight.
Armed with this extremely creative piece of literature I head off to school
to amaze my poor English teacher. She is quite a dear lady with a glorious sense
of humour for one who has constantly to read the ordinary, typical, student-type
essay. Won't she be pleased with my new approach to creative writing!
Melinda's fine golden red hair
Fell around her shoulders and back
Like a heavenly shawl.
When the wind blew
The silken strands would fly in her face
And her blanche delicate hands
Would leap up
To put the guilty hairs in place,
Behind her small pierced ears.
Though I never noticed,
I know her eyes must be blue.
They sparkle when she laughs,
And tear when she pouts.
Her tiny nose is a bridge
For armies of freckles
Fleeing over her flawless face,
Pale though it was.
There were tints of pink in her cheeks
To match her natural lips.
And with a small bottle of acid
I splashed out nature's perfection.
A DAY IN SPAIN
Pamplona - the very name conjures up images of Hemingway, bull fighting,
dancing in the streets and every other imaginable form of gaiety. I would be there
in about half an hour. The Spanish landscape is hazed by the dense black smoke
from the ancient steam engine just a couple of cars ahead. The dense smoke
somehow softens the harsh Spanish countryside drifting by. Someone a few
shabby seats in front of me points out the giant bull on the hillside that advertises
that Pamplona is near.
At the station there are a score of Americans exhausted by the two days
of festival which has already blessed the city with its gaiety. I am given some
very good advice by one of them at the station: "Don't ever spend more than
25 'pizzas' for a bottle of wine." During the two days of festival, which have
already destroyed that young man, it seems he's had great experience in buying
wine. He tells the terrible story of once having spent 50 pesetas tabout a dollarj
for a bottle. To lament his loss he passes around a bota. As the "vinegar" burns
its way down my throat, I know why he was so shaken at spending so much.
I check my backpack at the station baggage-room and walk the 2 kilometres
into town. As I walk down the road, past the tent city that has sprung up outside
Pamplona, deserted now until morning, dusk begins to settle over all. Suddenly
the approaching dark, for a few seconds, is routed by the explosion of the nightly
fireworks over the city. These bursting nova light my way to the city centre, the
Plaza del Castillo, for the moment, the centre of the universe. At five-thirty
everything will shift to the Plaza del Toro.
I don't have to worry about a place to sleep this evening for I can't afford
a room even if one were available, and to find a place to unroll my sleeping bag
isn't a problem. I don't have a sleeping bag. A fact I've cursed mightily many
a cold night.
I wander the dark streets about the Plaza. Up ahead is a small, well-lit shop.
"Why is it still open at this late hour?" I wonder. And then I know.
I think about the American at the station and am pleased to note that the
wine is 25 pesetas.
Pk ak Ik
By the time I got back to the Plaza I was able to throw away one of the
I walked around the Plaza. I danced a little. I decided to open the second
My first drink I dedicated to a small group at the edge of the Plaza. Their
English heritage stuck out like the patches on their faded jeans. As I raised my
bottle in tribute they beckoned me over. We finished my second bottle, we
finished their two or three bottles, we drank the wine of a Canadian couple who
were attracted by my vivid descriptions of home.
At about midnight someone thought it would be a good idea to walk about
a bit. It couldn't have been me, I knew I couldn't walk.
The Canadian couple and I ended up spending the night in the vestibule of
an apartment building. It is bitterly cold in the hills of Spain at night, but someone
finally thought of closing the door.

The running of the bulls commences promptly at seven o'clock. We got up
about an hour ago so that we can get a good place by the barricades. The cannon
blasts its signal and the bulls are let out. We see the runners begin to run as if
the hounds of hell are after them. They are only about a quarter of a mile ahead
of the bulls. Four or five minutes later the bulls come charging past us. A few
yards ahead of the front-running bull a man trips. He is among the charging bulls
and can't be pulled away. He curls into a ball and the bulls ignore him.
The bullfight I saw at five-thirty was almost a ballet, it was at once both
beautiful and horrifying, graceful and repugnant, and totally compelling.
Over the shoulder of a policeman watching the crowd leaving the Plaza del
Toro is a sub-machine gun, his right hand clutching the grip.
Walking back to the station I look at the passing landscape. There is no
softness in the harsh Spanish countryside. I am taking the next train out.

Did you see the comet
Passing silently by,
Bride of eternity,
Daughter of the sky?
Full of mystery
A child's chalked comment
On the blackboard of the night.
Signifying something for someone,
Nothing for no one.
Stark radiant signal.
Unexpected, yet waited for.
Catch a ride on a comet,
And be wisped out of sight.
Find out what it's all about,
A wonder to behold
With the eyes of a child.
You then will know that
You are but a grain of sand
In the ocean of eternity.
Did you see the comet?
D. L. WELCH
The other day I picked up a newspaper. The headline read:
COMBATANTS SAY CANADA WELCOME
To which I can only say, welcome to what?
QRoutersJ-External Affairs Minister Dull announced today that Canada
has been invited, by both sides of the Middle East Conflict, to join them in the
fray. He also was told by the Golf States that our supply of golf tees and other
nationally vital products would be cut off if we did not agree to mediate in the
conflict. To which he could only reply that we would be only too happy to
mediate on the subject, and would reply via the Sodden Arabians.
Meanwhile, back at the battlefront the Turd Army of E. Gypped has been
trying to break out from the Sinful Peninsula town of Sewers. The Isitreally
forces are not permitting this blasphemy, it being a Saturday and holy day, so
they are preventing the E. Gyptians' exit from Sewers. The Insecure Council of
the Unco-operative Nations was much alarmed by this latest news, and called
an emergency meeting to discuss the potential seepage of the E. Gyptians from
Sewers. The Porcelain ambassador, deciding that the war was all the fault of
the Chews, got into an argument with the Surliet ambassador over who was
going to supply the Arabs with arms first. The Surliet threw a few epithets at
the Porcelain, whereupon the latter shattered,
The Insecure Council decided that it would be a good idea to create an
emergency force, tentatively called the International Expedition for the Preserva-
tion of the Truce CINEPTJ. General Secretary Curtain Walltowall wrote on
behalf of the Council to inquire as to whether Canada would like to volunteer
logical support for the INEPT.
Mr. Dull stated that any support of INEPT was logical, but that he would
have to ask the Defensive Minister whether we could afford to support anything
of this kind.
The Defensive Minister replied that he couldn't see anything logical about
channeling men and money into the Middle East Conflict, as he thought the
warring factions were already getting enough munitions from the Surliets and
Our Energy Minister, Mr. Muckedallup, allowed as how the Latest Middle
Beast development did not overly disturb him. "My family has enough wood
stockpiled to last the winterf' he said, echoing the views of many loyal Canadians.
While all this talking was going on in New York and Geneva, not to
mention Ottawa, the Golf States began to get restless, particularly in the sand-
trap nation of Omen. The ruler of this last state, Muhammed al'Killjus, declared
that he was ready to cut off all supplies of oil to all countries supporting Isitreal.
Catarrh and other Arab Evilates were eager to add their support to Omen.
Fearing a total oil cutoff, the Indicted States Secretary of State, Henrys
Kissingher, was sent to the E. Gyptian capital of Kibble. Here, he will meet
President Saidthat of E. Gypped and Kernel Getuppety of Libya. It is expected
that they will throw Dr, Henrys Kissingher into a vat of boiling petroleum.
Panicking, the U. N., in the name of world safety and continued oil supply
to the Indicted States, has sent INEPT to the Middle Beast.
At Presstime, the INEPT is caught between the Isitreallyan Army trying
to break in to Sewers, and the E. Gyptian Turd Army trying to break out. The
Truce force is presently holding up the walls, thus retaining the status quo.

The hedgehog eats his fill and shivers,
So that his bristly back shudders
Like wind-blown grass.
For when the scorching sun sets,
The night is cold.
But he knows a warm place to sleep.
The hedgehog waddles out of the brush,
On short stubby legs,
Undetectable beneath his lumbering mass,
Onto the flat, wide, endless rock,
Still hot from the broiling sun.
He plops his soft belly
On the smooth black surface
And falls into heavy slumber.
A rude awakening,
A bone-cracking thud,
A whimper of pain,
And eternal sleep.
The hedgehog becomes a road hog.
THE SEASONS ND ME
There was once a fall
and nature was dying
but I was alive.
Then came the winter
and nature was dead
but I existed.
Soon it was spring
and nature was living
but I was dying.
I guess I won't be
with the seasons for a while.
The winter morning
Until the door
And my footsteps
The stillness of
The winter morning.

SECOND HAND BOOKS
The bell tinkled its warning
And the desperate young man
Burst from the blustery snow
Into the dark musty shop.
Sixpence for thirteen tales
In a coverless book of dust.

THE SEASONS OF YOUR LOVE
Spring: The Awakening
Ah, to be alive, a feeling quite unique and separate from all others. It is
knowing yourself and the one closest to you. Being secure in this knowledge.
It is feeling the sun hot on your neck and arms as your lips touch. Alive is
hearing the birds above and smelling the honey-sweet scent of the grass beneath.
Being at total peace within your inner self, yet, not being afraid to question and
examine. To know that the one you love will, when given truth, reply with
Life takes on new colour and purpose. The pace begins to quicken. The dust
hangs heavy in the air distorting what is ahead. You push on in your ignorance
and do not notice your spirit beginning to tire. The heat shimmers over the
water, enveloping you in layer upon layer of lust. Insatiable hunger. Phrases
become guarded lest unwanted promises slip by even though they have already
been inferred. The birds are still about, not quite as obvious as before. The
rustle of summer leaves rises above their song and hides them from curious eyes.
The grass is becoming coarse and smells of dog. The heat between tight grasped
hands begins to fade.
Wind, brisk and strong, tugs at your sleeves. Hands no longer joined are jam-
med in your pockets for warmth not found elsewhere. Your love becomes an
unsettled weight in your heart, shifting, ever shifting. The leaves fall and again
you think of springg for moments you are back, happy and warm, but there are
no birds, no song. The grass is too cold and coarse to lie upon. It turns dusty
grey and Withers. The rain comes and the chill passes over your soul. There is
no security. The knowledge is now forgotten. Only our empty shell of anxiety
and frustration remains. The sun no longer shines in your 1ove's hair, only the
wind blowing, ever blowing. The branches, click-clack, click-clack, sing of for-
gotten love. Your lips grow cold.
Winter: Last Breath
The first snow begins to fall, numbing your love. The sun is a dwarf now,
impersonal cold. It spreads a harsh revealing light over you. You can no longer
laugh with the easiness of spring or gusto of summer. Everything is white, sterile
and barren. Your bed is musty, the room close. Your lover breathes on, ignorant
of your open-eyed pain. The ceiling closes in. Your freedom is essential to life,
rebirth, happiness. The light begins to fail. Days go by unnoticed. You can feel
no more. Pain is forgotten. The time has again come for truth and, ultimately,
exposure. Your mind cannot rest until it is done. The pain returns, tearing and
ripping, till every feeling has been throughly ravaged. Crying, ever crying, Good-
bye, goodbye, goodbye, my love.
My skis sweep through the fresh clean white snow,
Gliding without pause.
Pine trees rush past, the snow surges
As I venture on.
The branches and bushes are laden
With the burden of snow.
But I am not, my mind's at rest.
I travel without a sound.
I rush around a corner.
My eyes behold a sight.
With a stunning shock to my mind
I see that the world of my mankind
Is filled with flashing signs,
A restaurant bright and gaudy
And drink machines and hot dogs
And madly blaring signs.
All is lost,
My freedom is gone,
Society is back,
I hurry on.
TALE OF THE OLD HOUSE
Standing in the vacant lot,
Strong in her fragility,
There she was, all alone,
Between two faceless buildings.
She had seen the city grow,
From the Victorian Past
To the Futurist Present.
She had seen the river
Slowly passing by,
Replaced by the plain pipe.
She had seen the green Park
Across the street, being replaced
By a concrete parking lot.
She had seen the Sun rise
In the blue sky, but now
Hidden by the smoke stacks.
She had seen the clean streets
Of the city, now filled with
Dirt, crime and prostitution.
But She saw and knew
Too much about the city
And it had been decided that She would
Be replaced by a mindless skyscraper.
A STORM: FOUR SKETCHES
The band has played these past four hours,
While winds have torn the summer from the trees
And autumn galloped in on copper roofs.
The futile raindrops crash on yellow glass,
Then glisten, dart, and slide
Down oily streets. The hissing, neon-whitened stream
Stagnates and sidles off
About a grey and sodden man
That blind content has numbed to rain.
The ragged fields seem stark and pale
To his lightning-dazzled eyes that peer through rattling panes
While humble kine, with fat, contented sides,
Lie still in creaking corners of the barn.
Sharp and glassy lights now own the floor,
While printed dancers chat by corner-potted plants
As, few by few, they leave to brave the night of black and bone
In dark and dim-lit cars.
The drunkard's twitch has overturned his wine:
Like thin and sickened blood, it seeps away.
No wound is felt.
It is dawn, an-d a life's long epiphany fades
Where a porcelain woman has squeezed out her pain
In death's avian fists. The still streets
Are grown warm in the sun
And in swollen green fields, slow cow-bells ring.
a grandiose sphere
Spinning mightily about the sun.
a massive wall of sequoia,
Branching to the sky.
an infinitude of barrenness,
Thirsting for the sea.
as deep as the sky,
Stretching to the sky.
And yet man in his "Omnipotence"
Planted his footsteps
From the vastness of the valleys
To the mountains of the sky.
Man was mighty,
Ruling his sphere in belief that he was
THEY did not notice the earth being finally cleansed.
The sound reached only the sky,
The light little farther.
R. S. WALKER
And a mighty structure came forth.
A triumph was being awarded
And, as the Gallic conqueror rode on
To the Capitol, a flicker of memory
Sprang, as in the crowd
A familiar face appeared.
Hellenic beauty has been snatched away
And the gods themselves are divided.
A ship sails from home
An adventure of twenty years,
Ten of conquest,
Ten of seafaring.
A great captain strides through his crew
But wasn't one familiar?
Richard has said that the Saracens must be repelled.
The Holy Land has fallen.
Knights of the Holy Cross come to free their faith
And ships sail the lake.
A king comes to free a nation not his,
Comes with many soldiers,
And one has been seen before.
Italy has contacted a foreign land,
And a great explorer has returned
From the land of tea, rice and Confucius.
Marco Polo has seen the Great Wall
And the Forbidden city.
He comes, bearing gifts from the East,
But one bearer is seen again.
The limits of man's knowledge are being increased.
The last frontier is being explored,
And a team of men are responsible.
Jacques Cousteau and his artificial lung
Are probing our ancestral home
And his many men work beside him.
One diver is dimly remembered.
Always moving, a limitless fountain of knowledge,
It moves through the bleak emptiness.
Boundless, black as coal but stabbed with
Flashes of beauty. Man reaches to understand
This realm by exploration. One rocket is launched
And a familiar visage appears at the controls ....
7.38 A.M. -
And adventure ceases.
G. W. HOWE
He kept on running. This was not at all unusual. He had been running for
two hours or so and knew that if he stopped he was through. Yet, at least, now
he felt and knew what freedom was and was not prepared to give it up. His
aching limbs screamed at him to stop, to let all his dreams fall. He just couldn't
quit. He had fought for years just to feel how he felt now. He was free. He
could not stop.
He looked up in the sky occasionally. There he glimpsed th-e bright shining
sphere of the sun flashing through the spread leaves. Then he remembered his
pursuers and the life he had left behind, and concentrated on the rough earth
below. He must be careful of each leaping stride. A broken foot would destroy
him and return him to his old self. Not now, for he was free.
He had not always been free. He could remember the binding chains and
cracking whips of the past. How he had hated that dirty sun making him sweat
with hatred. Yet now that same sun glowed with happiness and each ray showed
hope, it made him think that once he had nearly died in slavery. Now he knew
that he must die in freedom. He kept running.
The trees were beginning to thin out a bit. He decided that soon he must
rest. For it had to be safer now. He had run so far. He reached a clearing of
about two miles in length and decided to stop. He thought it must be around
noon since the sun was high and shining in the sky. He smiled at it and fell
into a comfortable sleep. His mind dreamed of freedom.
When he awoke his dreams turned into nightmares. He heard the frightening
sounds of dogs barking. These were defini-tely the same ones he had seen run
after other runaways. He had also seen them tear a human being in half. He
was scared. He knew he was trapped and began to run into the field in a wild
and crazed gallop. He was trapped. He heard the barks becoming more distinct.
He ran. He ran as he had never run before. When he had covered roughly a
mile he stopped. He looked up at the sun. It was hidden behind a massive cloud.
His terror was slowly drifting out of him.
He looked back at where he had rested and saw the dogs beginning to chase
across the field. He knew he could never outrun the dogs. He thought. He thought
about life, and about death. He thought about everything he had ever thought
of in his life. Plus much more. He thought for the longest minute in his life.
Then he decided.
All his life he had been trapped. He knew now that he could not allow
himself to run away in terror from something which had terrorized him all his
life. That would just prove he was indeed the slave, and they were the masters.
He would die in freedom. Yet would he die a free and singular man.
The feelings he had felt during his first run returned to him. Now he felt
good. He looked up once more at the sun. It was once again staring at him and
the cloud which at one point had covered it was gone. He laughed the hardest
and truest laugh at this. He lay down in the grass and waited for death. When
death came it was truly beautiful.
THE BULLET CONNOTATION
We passed the furry, mewing kittens and wandered down the aisle towards
the bird section. Sharp-eyed canaries hopped from pole to pole in their aluminum
cages. A budgie was pecking viciously at his cage in a vain attempt to attract the
attention of some rare and gloriously coloured bird beside it. We stopped in front
of a blue and green parrot which was amusing a group of grubby children with
a monologue of disjointed phrases which it had obviously picked up from the
sounds on the fairgrounds.
"Buy a candy floss, buy a popcorn!" it croaked. Liz smiled and tossed a
sunflower seed into its miniature prison. Suddenly the parrot turned its head and
aimed its black shining eyes straight at Liz. Amidst the pleasant atmosphere of
young animals and fascinated children, something in my stomach tumed cold.
"High death!" it croaked. "High death!" Liz looked at me and said, with a
note of anxiety hovering in her voice: "Let's go outside."
I smiled faintly and walked away from the parrot and the children, who
were beginning to feel hungry because of the parrot's advertising.
The air felt humid and unpleasant as we stepped from the Domestic and
Rare Animal Buildings into the gradually diminishing hustle and bustle of the
midway. Dusk had fallen and gaudy lights were beginning to flick on. The food
vendors aimed their fans so that wafts of greasy but tempting smells of corn-on-
the-cob and hot dogs reached the hungry crowds. Loud voices pushed their games
with their "special deals" for young girls, spilling more money into the warm,
moist air. People lined up to see the freak show, with scepticism written boldly
on their faces, and came out with mixed disappointment and relief. Liz had her
palm in mine and it felt clammy. Suddenly all the lights on the midway were on
and the giant ferris wheel with the bullet-shaped compartments lit up the sky.
That was one ride that we had to try!
"Let's go on the ferris wheel! Oh, Pete, l've never been," she said.
I smiled. "Sure you won't be sick?"
"Yes. Well . . . oh, come on! My treatf' I was dragged gently through the
throng of children around the duck-shooting booth. She paid for the tickets and
watched as the huge ride spun slowly around and the bullets rocked to and fro.
Screams of enjoyment, mostly, hit the ground as the wheel rose higher and higher.
As it slowed to a stop I felt a tightening of the throat and attributed it to innocent
fear and anticipation. I squeezed Liz's hand.
"Better take off your hat," she warned, "those bullets might just rock too
hard and it'll fly out." I took off the panama hat with the blue band and handed
it to her.
"Good luck charm," I said.
We climbed into a glaring yellow, chipped bullet and the man pushed the
door shut, his attention elsewhere as a small boy was sick on the steps. Gradually
our seat was raised higher and higher as each couple was put in a compartment.
The midway lay before us like a vulgar Christmas card with a picture of coloured
lights and tinsel on the front. The air seemed cooler at the top.
Then the ferris wheel really started. I kept my eye on Liz as I noticed she
kept both hands on either side of my hat and shut her eyes.
"Look!" I shouted over the rushing air and music, but it seemed her excited
fear was more important than a gaudy view. We went faster and faster and, as
the bullet came closer to the others, she leaned to the opposite side of the car so
that her leg was pressed firmly against the door. Suddenly a warm gust of air
blew into the compartment and I realized that the door was opened. I looked a
hundred feet down to a man shouting and suddenly noticed Liz's foot slipping
out of the gap. The hat flew out of her grasp and her face was one of stark
horror as she stretched out her arm and her body slid from the metal compart-
ment and dangled out the open doorway. She grasped tightly onto the door as
a man shouted through a megaphone, "You in there! Help her! Hold on, honey!"
I clamped my hands around her wrists but she was stiff with terror. The door
swung in the dark breeze. I tried to shut the door with one hand to bring her
closer to the bullet but, with a sickening grind, the bottom hinge broke and she
was hanging with only the support of the air and my grasp on her wrists. The
door, at an odd angle, was a great weight threatening to leave its remaining hinge
at any moment. Her body was swinging against it. I felt my voice become tense
as I tried to reassure her and pull her up at the same time. She had stopped
perspiring and she kept her gaze upwards, away from the milling crowd. The
music had stopped. Over the thick air the sound of an animal being put away
for the night rang clear.
PROBLEMS OF BEING A PERFECT FISHERMAN
I hate to admit it, but I'm the perfect fisherman. I'm not being conceited,
nor am I necessarily bragging, because I know that being the perfect fisherman is
a God-given talent, and you're either born with it or you're not. The perfect
fisherman is one who is able to see his partner's faults, correct them if they need
correcting, and show him what he is doing wrong.
Many fishing magazines will tell you that the perfect combination is when
one fisherman is perfect and the other is not. Thus, it is fair to conclude that a
combination will go on the rocks when both are perfect or both imperfect.
During one competition, I was lucky enough to find an imperfect partner
and, as a result, the contest was quite enjoyable. But it isnit easy being the perfect
fisherman. For one thing, you have to be right all the time, and it can be
embarrassing when you constantly have to point out to your partner his mistakes.
Occasionally, he gets exasperated and shouts: "If I could win an argument just
once- that's all I ask. Let me win just onceli'
I think it would be interesting to let him win an argument, but how can I
when he's always wrong? I could fake it, I guess, and pretend he was right, but
how can a partner respect me if I am wrong?
Let me cite some of the problems that a perfect fisherman faces.
His partner has been at the lodge all day gutting fish, repairing flies and
drinking it up with some fellow fishermen. His nerves may be slightly frayed.
He keeps insisting, "But the tickle back fly will snag a bass if you pour beer on
it!" Now the perfect fisherman comes back to the lodge after a day's fish. His
role is that of a Supreme Court Justice. He must hear both sides of his partner's
In many cases, I've had to rule against my partner. He may have demanded,
in fact, swom, that the tickle back fly will catch bass if you pour beer on it.
But, after hearing the arguments, I've had to rule in favour of my partner's
shore friends. Naturally, my partner is disappointed, and at the time he can even
be angry. But I have no choice. Since I'm also the perfect friend, I wouldn't want
my friends to think badly of me.
As the perfect fisherman, I have had, on occasion, to point out to my partner
the faults his fishermen friends make. Sometimes he feels the criticism is unjust.
But I explain to him that he is blinded by friendship, and since I am not in contact
with any of his people, it is easier for me to see what they are doing wrong.
If one is perfect in one's fishing life, one should also be perfect in one's
social life. At the lodge, I am most honoured by the trophy-hunters. My partner
has always felt that at the lodge I should pay more attention to my friends, but
in order to stay a perfect fisherman I must always keep learning from the
Some think that, to be a perfect fisherman, you have to gut the fish and
dig for worms. This is nonsense. Kings don't stand guard duty, presidents don't
shovel snow, prime ministers don't wash their own cars. If you're the perfect
fisherman you must insist on dignity and delegate authority. Let people with
imperfections do the dirty work.
IF you're a partner to a perfect fisherman, you probably have recognized
in your own partner all the traits that I have pointed out here. IF you're not,
aren't you sorry that you're not my partner?
I cannot comprehend my wandering mind,
Nor why it bids me scrawl across a page
These vagrant thoughts, chasing round rynd, to find
That nought will e'er avail of their rampage.
These fleeting love-hates flit, as on a stage,
Through wings and ports, then out to briefly dwell
In splashing lights, 'mid peals of "Golden Age",
Then flee, as flirts, leaving an infidel.
If art must be inspired and crafted well,
My lines must cease to flow, must never beg
Where poets purr, whisper crisp words, I yell,
And craftsmanship can never be my plea.
Why do I on these wandering treks embark?
Why do I write? Why, 'tis but for the marks!
I often wonder, gazing at my verse,
How such as I could ever covet fame,
For any lines my pen might here coerce
Are soon o'ershadowed by a greater name.
Here Milton, Shakespeare, Spenser, mighty quills,
Have etched eternal lines in time, and claim
The wild elusive quatorzain. Yet still
I strive to reach the threshold of their world,
My pen still gropes through shreds of rhyme until
A sonnet, crude and churlish, lies unfurled.
If poems be a garden, Petrarch's cream
The roses, mine are dying weeds uncurled.
Then softly came a voice into my dream:
"Thou seekst not fame. Expression is thy theme.
What tales of woe assail a foe-full age,
Which sting an ear or wring a tear from eyes?
What news of quakes or coups or rakes rampage,
Bring sorrow to tomorrow's new-found wise?
What fabled death avails a breath or sigh
That shows to man his glow can span his plights?
What crimes of gore must mime Greek lore, then die,
Before the lettered law, unfettered, fights?
What flocks must die to shock the tide of hunts,
And teach the children beasts can still run free?
What must we do to thrust the clues out front?
What score must flaunt this war-torn wanton spree?
I know not what last blow will rouse mankind.
But Judgement's steps I'm sure follow behind.

This year in Ashbury's history was marked by several distinct changes in its
lifestyle. As editor it is my job to tell you briefly about the year past. The large
number of exciting events makes this rather difficult.
Of course the high point of the year was the opening of Ashbury's new
facilities, which David Josselyn wrote about at length in this space last year. The
celebration was fashioned into an entire weekend of festivities, from the 13th to the
15th of October, '73. It was opened by an "Ashbury Day" on Saturday. Govemor-
General and Mrs. Michener were present to dedicate and officially open the new
buildings. As part of the celebration, students, parents and Old Boys enjoyed an
old-fashioned Fair and a bingo game, among other things, on the school grounds.
This was followed by a chapel service and Old Boys' meeting and party. This was
really well deserved. for Ashbury owes a lot to these generous gentlemen.
The effect of the new buildings was most pronounced on the Senior School,
yet the obvious buzz of excitement around both schools was most evident. The
emotional impact on the College as a whole was such as has never been witnessed
before at Ashbury since it opened, 83 years ago. It has added numerous new
possibilities to the already wide range of educational opportunities that has made
Ashbury unique in Ottawa and, indeed, anywhere.
It is impossible to say whether the sport successes by the School this year
were due to this change, but nonetheless they were quite impressive.
This academic year introduced to the Ashbury community several new twists.
A talent show and a ping-pong tournament were very popular additionsg the
expansion of the A.S.C.O. CAshbury Student Company! into, I believe. 5 separate
companies provided invaluable experience in business operations. Dividends of
125 0722 may not be realistic, but they sure kept the shareholders happy!
This year, sadly, was the last at Ashbury for 4 teachers Q2 junior, 2 seniorj
and we wish them best of luck wherever they may choose to go.
In closing I would like to express my personal sincere thanks to the School
for these last two happy, productive years. Successes and failures come and go,
but memories last forever.
ROSS BROWN, Editor
P.S. I would like to thank John Lund for his great contributions as co-editor.
The Junior School has just completed twenty years of its separate existence.
Mary Boyce has been with us for over half of these twenty years. She moved into
our Memorial Wing as Matron in January, 1963.
Mary will not be returning when school opens in the fall of 1974. She has
decided to spend the coming years bouncing between Scotland where her sister
is living alone, Ottawa where her daughter has three beautiful grandchildren for
Mary to watch over, and Detroit where old friends live.
Two tributes were paid to Mary in June. At the Closing Ceremonies, Mr.
Joyce presented her with a silver tray. The cheering at this moment was by far
the loudest heard that afternoon, and Mary wiped her eyes several times. Perhaps
even more memorable for Mary was an intimate gathering in the library attended
by junior boarders, and seniors who had started their Ashbury careers in the
Junior Wing under Mary's care. Don Paterson, Head Boy, made a fine presenta-
tion speech, and Mary was handed a travelling wallet Cfrom the office staffl well
stuffed with the results of a collection from boys and staff.
Mary performed her duties as Matron with conscientious interest. I think
this statement would apply to matrons in most boys schools, but Mary went far
beyond this. A more suitable term for her would be House Mother. Many a shy
boy, lonely in his first stay away from home can attest to this. The fears and
uncertainties of a new boy were quickly eased by Mary's sympathy and under-
standing. She could use a sharp tongue when necessary, but much more often her
room was a haven from the raucous schoolboy world which occasionally becomes
too much for a sensitive boy.
Mary was happy at Ashbury. This fact, combined with her down to earth
Scottish good sense raised her above the standard of the average school matron.
"What you lose onuthe swings, you gain on the roundaboutsf' This is one of
Mary Boyce's droplets of wisdom, but I'm not sure that it is always true. We've
lost Mary, and I doubt if we can find a roundabout which will give us a prize
to make up for this loss.
THE POETRY READING CONTEST
Ashbury maintains a happy balance between the academic and athletic
development of a boy in the junior school. An emphasis on marks, a steady suc-
cession of testing periods, the colour board, daily reports, all these keep a constant
classroom pressure on the boys. It is a pressure on which they thrive in almost
every case. Full participation on the games fields brings a happy response, again
from almost every boy. Why then the strong interest in poetry? About half the
school enters the preliminary rounds for the annual contest in poetry reading. One
answer may be Mr. Polk's poetry class in Grade 6 for which he has written the
The contest was held on a wet day during games period in Argyle, and Mr.
Penton, a master in the senior school judged the competition. All the readers
were very good and it must have been difficult to decide the winners, who were:
3rd place: Timothy Webb - Grade 6
2nd place: Mark Ferguson - Grade 7A
lst place: John Lund - Grade 8A
HUMAN E SOCIETY CONTEST
In January all classes in the junior school wrote essays for the annual Humane
Society Essay Contest. In Ottawa, 4,500 entries were submitted.
About a month later, the Director of the Humane Society came to Ashbury
to announce the winners and distribute the book prizes. They were:
Ross Brown and John Lund in Grade 8
Barry Johnston and Robert Smith in Grade 7
No winners in Grade 6, unfortunately
Hung Bui, Ricky Konrad and Jeffrey Mierins in Grade 5
The judges considered Ross Brown's essay the second best in all Ottawa and
his effort brought the Cruikshank Horse to reside in our trophy case for at least
the next year. Ross' essay appears in the literary section of this magazine.
SOCKIE - 1974
Sockie originated in 1969 and is exclusive to Ashbury. The game is played in
your socks with a tennis ball and is a combination of hockey and soccer. The net
is usually a couple of lines drawn on the wall. It is played in Argyle and often
disturbs Mr. Sherwood when he has parents in his office. However it seems to
become more popular every year. Every boy land Mr. Humphreysj has played it
at one time or another, either before chapel, during lunch hour or after school.
There is also quite a gang of day boys led by Schoeler who come to Argyle on
Saturday mornings to have a game with the boarders.
Next year Ashbury hopes to see an organized league, but the masters are not
as enthusiastic as the boys. Nevertheless, we can always hope!

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE WEEKEND?
Life at Ashbury changes dramatically when the dayboys leave after school
is finished on Friday afternoon.
When Mr. Sherwood dashes from class to class filling in the "Leave List,"
the boarders know that the weekend has practically arrived. Some choose to go
home, others are invited to a friend's house, and about half remain at school.
Some activity is planned for most weekends. This frequently takes the form
of an overnight stay in the country. We wish to thank the several parents who
have provided outings for twenty to twenty-five juniors. tThe number of boarders
who choose to remain at school on these occasions rises dramaticallyj. We must
also mention the cheerful energy of Jim Humphreys who organizes a smooth
departure, packing food, checking overnight packs, driving the van.
As you can see from the pictures, our excursions take no account of the
seasons. The gentleman with the lawn mower is Admiral Lay, who together with
Mrs. Lay, entertained us at their charming house in Fallbrook on two occasions.
The first was a winter weekend complete with enthusiastic cross country skiing.
snowshoeing, and a sleigh ride under the stars. The second was a spring weekend
graced with superb weather. The boys camped out in tents and enjoyed the pool
as well as activities on Fallbrook River.
BLUE SEA LAKE
On September 21st the boarders of the Junior School went to Mr. Sherwood's
cottage on Blue Sea Lake, continuing a tradition which has been carried on for
The trip took about two hours and was uneventful, except for some of the
boys who drove with Mr. Sherwood who discovered near Chelsea that he had
forgotten the keys to the cottage.
We arrived at seven in the evening and set up our tents. Two good cooks
prepared good food for us.
During the weekend several of the boys and teachers went swimming even
though the water was rather cold, some even dared to try water skiing.
Charlie Lay brightly tipped over his canoe by sitting on the stern and then
Mr. Sherwood fried steaks for our supper on the second night. That night
many boys slept inside because it was considered too cold. However some did
sleep in tents and others went to Joe Sherwood's cabin. He is Mr. Sherwood's
We returned to school on Sunday afternoon after what had turned out to be
a truly enjoyable adventure.
THE HALLOWE'EN PARTY
Once again this year the boarders were invited for a Hallowe'en Party at the
Babbitts'. We wandered over, stopping here and there for a treat on the way.
When we arrived at the Babbitts', we immediately had a supper consisting of
assorted sandwiches, and a dessert of ice cream, various pastries, and a cake
donated by Mrs. Tottenham.
After dinner everybody concentrated in the basement for some make-up
which was applied by Mr. Parks. Then, one by one, the assorted "things" departed
and spread all over Rockcliffe. Most of the Staff were at the house when the
boys drifted back, only to be told to go straight to the school.
This ended a wonderful evening. We thank the Staff and especially the
Babbitts for a great time.

Shown above is the 7A class in our new junior science laboratory. It might
appear that one or two in the class are not too excited by the unfolding drama of
science! We trust that appearances are deceiving.
THE JUNIOR SCHOOL SCIENCE ROOM
A much needed renovation occurred in the Junior School this year with the
refurbishing of the science room.
By using component cupboards for the bench and wall set-up, we were able
to cut costs two ways. First we were able to do our own designing of the system,
and second, with the help of many, we were able to install the benches and
cupboards ourselves. The plumbing and electrical work were contracted out and
installed very well.
The new storage areas have been most useful and the set-up will allow more
student participation in science lessons.
J. L. BEEDELL
Editor's note. In this rather formal statement, Mr. Beedell makes only an indirect
mention of his own very substantial contribution to the laboratory. Not only the
design, but practically all of the physical labour involved were provided by Mr.
Beedell after school hours and on weekends.
and his floating Zoo . . . this Lenten meditation was presented under Mr. Graham's
direction in concert by the students of grades 6-7-8 at the end of Winter term.
The chapel choir formed the Chorus, and entire classes entered the stage to join
in the presentation of songs about the building of the Ark, the Flood, and the
Rainbow. Between songs were read scripture passages to provide a narrative back-
ground for the mini-oratorio. In this way we not only selected "good" voices,
instead ALL students-of these forms were participating. This can be considered
a signal achievement in the musical history of Ashbury College, and was recog-
nized as such by the listening members of both Junior and Senior Schools.

The School presented a new and hitherto unknown aspect of its character
this year by introducing a Talent Show organized by Mr. Graham and Mr. Polk.
One grey day in March with the wind howling outside, throwing snow all
over our hockey rink to prevent normal Games, all the students assembled in
Argyle to view a great variety of entertainment, from piano players to artists,
from acted skits to attempts tsuccessfulj to remain stone-faced, silently staring at
a laughing audience.
Variety truly was the name of the game that day. Lahey I's chalk drawings
on the blackboard raised a few eyebrows, as he made pictures of Mr. Polk, a
little on the tipsy side, and Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Polk did not appear to object
too much to the caricature. Lahey's exhibition won one of the three prizes which
had been presented by Mr. Sherwood.
David McClenahan's sweet voice earned him a prize as well, singing "Both
Sides Now',, and "Yesterday".
The other prize was awarded to the performers of the skit "At the Park".
It was encouraging to find 15 contestants and one class ULD courageous
enough to perform. Messrs Babbitt, Humphreys and Parks helped out with song
Altogether it was a most entertaining afternoon which helped to warm up
an otherwise cheerless day.
Glancing back over recent Ashburians I note that the brief introduction to
the chess tournament tells us that each has attracted the largest number of entries
ever. Last year "lOl boys entered the competition, by far the largest number
in the history of this tournament". This year was the 15th in this annual event
and we had 111 contestants. I only hope that we will be able to get all their
names onto these two pages.

PUBLIC SPEAKING '74
This year's contest took place with six contestants. They were:
SA- JOHN LUND. His speech was John's favourite ,topic, the problems of
preparing a speech, giving helpful hints to anyone faced with the ordeal of mak-
8-JUSTIN FOGARTY. Skiing and skating were his topics. Sprinkled
with puns, it was apparently enjoyed by the audience.
7A-DAVID BEEDELL. Skiing again, but this time cross-country skiing.
He gave an account of its long history.
7A - MARK FERGUSON. He set the audience rolling all over Argyle with
his speech on spoonerisms. The laughter almost drowned out the speech.
7K-DAVE TAMBLYN. Back to seriousness again. with an intriguing
talk on sailing and its history.
7L-MICHAEL SOURIAL. A rather convincing speech on the assassina-
tion of John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
When all the speeches were heard and contestants were nervously awaiting
the final decision, the winners were announced. Third Prize went to Mark
Ferguson, Second to Michael Sourial, and the Charles Gale Prize for the best
public speaker went to none other than John Lund. for the second consecutive
year. But whereas last year, John got no further than the Ashbury finals, this
year he went on to win the Ottawa finals, the Eastern Ontario finals and placed
second in the whole of Ontario. Great work John!

THE GALLERY OF GREAT CANADIANS
The picture above shows Hunter Tootoo, on behalf of Grade 5, accepting
Governor General Roland Michener's picture to add to the Gallery of Great
Canadians. The presentation took place when Governor General Michener offi-
cially opened the new building at Ashbury in October, 1973. Shown in the
background are W. A. Joyce, Headmasterg Don Paterson, Captain of the School:
Rodney Moore, an Ashbury Old Boy and aide-de-camp to the Governor General.
On the right is Mr. Tottenham, form master of Grade 5.
Mr. H. J. Robertson, director of the Canadian Studies Programme in the
Senior School, started the Gallery of Great Canadians in 1971. The collection
is designed to bring to life a wide sw-eep of current events and history for our
Grade 5 boys. Mr. Tottenham has carried on the programme for the past three
years. Included in the Gallery are portraits of Chief Dan George, Gordie Howe,
A. Y. Jackson, Mike Pearson, John Diefenbaker twhen Mike Pearson viewed the
Gallery he insisted with a stern look, but with a very merry twinkle in his eye,
that his portrait should hang above that of Diefenbakerll. Gerhard Herzberg, Dr.
Charles H. Best, Senator Norman Paterson, Roland Michener and Russ Jackson.
A VISIT BY MRS. SHAKUNTALA DEVI
On January 18 Mrs. Devi, a renowned mathematical genius, came to visit
Ashbury to display her intriguing abilities.
It was an excellent display as Mrs. Devi showed her adeptness at solving
huge number problems and answering questions on days of the week, birthdays
and historic dates.
Shawn Lavery challenged Mrs. Devi with an electric calculator. Mrs. Devi
All in all, it was an excellent visit, as all the boys enjoyed it.

JUNIOR HOUSE COMPETITION
Most of the things that the boys do during the year, individually or as a
team, are reflected in points for their House. The system allows many scoring
chances for all, and the boys' response to the challenge of inter-house competition
is one of the great forces at Ashbury. It is wonderful to be involved with a team
during a drive for points with all members digging in to do their level best to help.
Knowledge, skill and teamwork are applied to the common goal with great benefit
to the boys in terms of loyalty, leadership and grit.
This year the struggle for the Pitfield Shield went right to the wire with three
of the four houses in an excellent position to win it all on Sports Day. Excitement
was intense, and the boys gave it everything they had. They were simply superb,
The results were:
First - Wizards
Second - Hobbits
Third - Dragons
Fourth - Goblins
After the complete school year only seven points separated the two leading
houses. Congratulations to Mr. Polk and Mr. Tottenham and their Wonderful
Wizards, and congratulations to all of the other teams and team members. It
was a great year!
G. W. BABBITT
A ping pong tournament was held this year with most Forms sending their
champion to the play-offs. Form winners were Abrahamsen t8al, Watson 189,
Bravo Hal, Sutterlin C7kJ, Durazo !6l. In the finals Bravo edged Watson,
winning three out of the five games.
A STRANGE MEETING WITH AN OBJECT FROM OUTER SPACE
". . . and therefore, life on planet Biggle-Wiggle is possible."
"Possible? My foot!" I said aloud as I switched off my radio. "The things
they're broadcasting nowadays. Huh!"
I was in my apartment listening to some nit in front of a microphone saying
there was life on a planet in another galaxy. I drank my orange juice and headed
As I lay in my bed contemplating the events of the day I heard a series of
whirrs, thumps and bangs.
"Oh! Darn it!" I exclaimed. "The vacuum cleaner has got loose again. I'm
going to have to get a leash for that machine."
I stomped out of my bedroom and found to my surprise that half of the
living room had been torn away! In the middle of the floor was a little round
thing that went "Bleep, b1eep".
Immediately I thought that I'd had too much orange juice. My eyes were
starting from my head, but after I'd given them a good rub and put them back,
neatly polished, the apparition was still there.
As I studied it more carefully a little hatch opened and a small, purple-
coloured man hopped out, followed by two smaller, purple-coloured men. I
expected him to say, "Take me to your Tang," but instead he said, "Binshbo glorb
I wracked my brains for languages and blurted out a rather muddled up,
"Sprechen-zie Deutsch? Parlez-vous francais? Speekee Italiano?"
He seemed quite puzzled by my words, and in a last minute effort I asked,
To my relief he replied with a vigorous nod. "We are from the planet
Biggle-Wiggle," said the first little man who obviously was the captain. "We came
here to find out more about your planet, Earth. We thought there might be
intelligent life on this planet, but I see now that we were wrong."
As he was saying this I noticed his odd appearance. He was about one and a
half foot tall, six inches wide, and had bright pink polka-dots all over his back.
He had seven legs, with little tufts of hair springing up from his rather dirty
toenails. Altogether, he was rather a weird sight.
"I am going to brain-wash you," he said in a very gruff voice. "Then you
will tell me all about your planet-in an intelligent way."
He approached me cautiously, and then said in a quiet voice, "You are getting
sleepy, very sleepyg you want to sleep, I will hypnotize you to sleep."
"I'll be bored to sleep if he carries on like this," I thought to myself.
"When I snap my toes you will fall asleep," he whispered.
He snapped his toes Call 56 of themb and instantly both of his guards fell
asleep. Just like clockwork two little men, shaped like red crosses, appeared and
carried them away on a stretcher.
"Since that didn't work, I shall have to use force," snarled the leader, who,
incidentally, was named Glorbaglush. "I will use my K.49 space-atomic
I noticed that a bunch of Biggle-Wigglians were peeping out from the space
ship, and they gasped in fright as he pulled out something that looked as
dangerous as a pop-gun.
The suspense was unbearable as he closed his eyes, put a finger t?l in his
ear OJ and began to squeeze the trigger. Suddenly it happened! "CLICK!" Out
of the agitator popped a little red flag that said "BANG!" I looked at it curiously.
"I give up! You are incapable of behaving intelligently at all! I'm getting
out of this crazy place."
At this moment the vacuum cleaner got loose again, and it frightened the
little Biggle-Wigglians out of their wits, if indeed I may use that perhaps too
"Ahg! It's an atomic energizer!" they shouted madly as they hopped around
in confusion. When they finally remembered their space ship, they jumped into it,
closed the hatch with a bang, and blasted off. They seemed to be heading for
"Boy! Am I glad to get rid of that lotl' I sighed.
I switched on the radio to calm myself . . and therefore, life on planet
Shmorgimam VII is possible."
"Whirr, thump, bang."
"Oh no!" I thought. "Here we go again!"
TIM WEBB - 6
IF ONLY I HAD KEPT MY MOUTH SHUT!
"Goodby, dear," I said.
The reply I received was a half-broken skillet winging its way across the
room followed by various other kitchen utensils and some assorted blasphemies.
I was the intended target. Fortunately, I was only hit badly by the shrill notes of
the screaming and swearing. Whoever said "sticks and stones may break my bones
but names will never hurt me," was obviously a bachelor.
I knew what would be in store for me when I got home. My mother-in-law
would be standing in the doorway with a half-broken umbrella, which was the
next thing to a murder weapon. Anything half-broken in our house was only in
that condition because it had been used upon me with some degree of effectiveness
at one point or another.
Last night I returned home late at night because of some extra work at the
office. Zelda, my wife, thought I was in some motel with a reservation for two.
She also thought that she was not one-half of that party.
It all started when I was in third year college. I went to Sam's Bar and Grill
for lunch with some friends of mine. Zelda was there, looking as sexy as possible
for a thirty-one inch waist. She did a fine job of that. I asked her out once that
week, but then started to date her more often. Soon after the third month of
dating I gave her my fraternity pin. Two weeks later I bought her an engagement
ring. By the time I was out of college, we decided to be married. There we were,
walking up to the altar. The priest looked ominous against the candlelight. I also
distinctly remember how badly the organist played the wedding march. She was
so bad, that I tripped trying to walk in time with the beat. The priest went through
the whole routine, and then he asked me the sixty-four thousand dollar question. If
only I had kept my mouth shut! Instead I said "I do," which turned out to be the
biggest mistake of my life. I realized that when her first words in our married
life were, "George, I think I'm getting a sick headache! George? George! . .

THE SCHOOL DAY
IA Typical Day in the Life of "Unlucky,' Alan Haileyj
"Well, fclickj here we are. Let's see, oh, yes, yet another gruelling test today.
Why do literature tests have to come every five weeks?" I said to myself. Getting
up, I discovered the dog had made a midnight snack of my slippers. This wasn't
going to be my day.
While I attempted to digest a bowl of Fruitless Loops, I entertained myself
by viewing the end panel. 'Send today for your free whizbangl' it said.
"Not today, thanks, mister. I've got to go to school. But my gourmet friend
here might like one. The dog loves styrene plastic."
Doesn't it always snow when you get ready to go to school? The daily cycle
repeated itself. Shovel out the driveway, wipe off the car windows, and what
happens? The snowplow comes by. Great!
By the time I reached school, I found people scurrying off to chapel. I
caught the end of the 8A line and followed. Seeing a stock car race was quite
comparable to what I saw then. I veered away for a short pit stop at the water
fountain. "Of course it's malfunctioning. I could have told-SPLURSH!-it
On the way back from chapel, one could hear humming to the tune of
the hymns. This changed when they remembered that spelling was fast approach-
ing, and the humming assumed a rather sombre note.
At nine o'clock the regular classes began. There were groans all around me
when the bell rang. "Well, gym isn't that bad! . . . oh, it's French. I see your
When the class was over, nobody really felt like continuing, but in came Mr.
Perkins, and instantly everyone realized he had to continue. It was the test.
Twenty minutes later, Mr. Perkins left for a phone call, which gave everybody
a bit of a breather and a chance to think over matters. The second half was
easier to do, as everybody was rested-except for me, who was still searching
for my test sheet I had lost three minutes earlier.
Well, I completed the test eventually, but I did not exactly look forward
to the prospect of what was coming to me at break. Timidly, I stepped outside
the safe confines of the school. Almost immediately, I was greeted by a stray
tahemll snowball and a snow fight ensued. Even when I went inside after break,
the snowballs kept coming, much to the dismay of Arthur Petersen.
Math period was somewhat of a relief-there was no danger from snow-
balls. I enjoyed math period thoroughly. I learned three things-bisecting
triangles, parallelograms and never to bend your protractor too far.
Obviously Mr. Perkins didn't have our tests marked. Grammar came instead
for English period. I reached for my grammar book, which was at the back of
the desk. When it came out, seven other books followed. I caught five, but the
heaviest two fell to the floor with a sickening CRUNCH. Luckily, they missed
Before I realized it, the class was over and I found myself watching Jose
Juarez explaining to Ian Carter where he had gathered the worm collection he
was showing him. That tore it. How could I eat lunch after that? Bleah!
After a rather uncomfortable lunch in which everything seemed to be made
out of worms, Hawkins started a Sockie game. I joined in, and was doing fine
until I slid into a passing Senior while trying to intercept a pass. I made a rather
Still running I reached the locker room. There were already people there, so
I had to hurry. Vaulting neatly a couple of benches, I made a beeline for my
lock. I dialed the combination and it wouldn't open. It stuck. No matter how hard
I pulled, kicked or twisted, it wouldn't budge. Until I let it go, that is.
I just caught the bus in time. Being late entailed standing in the aisle with
all my equipment, and every time the bus lurched. the bag would disappear
under the seat. Keeping track of the bag and still keeping my balance was a
The game went well, and we won 5 to 3. with a goal by yours truly. I was
quite proud, and I knew the afternoon would go just perfectly.
The next class was geography and we learned about Russia and its people,
and where and how they live. A discussion about Watergate which mysteriously
sprang up in the middle was a bit out of context, but very stimulating.
Science and Latin went rather smoothly except for the fact that I slipped
and fell outside the science room where the janitors had just waxed the floor.
It was hard to change over into Latin from science, but nothing went wrong. I
studied the Third Declension over and over until I was sure that when I woke
up in the morning I would ask Mom for a glass of -o, -is, -it, -imus, -itis, -unt
juice by mistake.
But all good things must come to an end, and I had to stop working. All in
all, the day hadn't been too bad-but the day wasn't over yet. After dodging
the stampede to the Tuck Shop, I was in such a hurry that I yanked my lunchbox
out of the locker without realizing it wasn't locked. What followed didn't do
great things for my thermos.
When I reached the car, I regained my composure. Father was waiting for
me. I knew precisely what he'd ask. He did.
"How'd it go, son? What happened today?"
"Oh . . . nothing."

MY GREAT AUNT ETI-IEL
Do you have any unusual relatives? I have a rather extraordinary one. She
is my Great Aunt Ethel, a lovable person who is very original. Everyone enjoys
paying her a visit.
Her home is like a museum, as it is full of things from different places on
the globe that she has visited. She now lives in the heart of London because of
its wonderful zoo. She is a great animal lover, with a special affection for the
wild ones which have a particular fascination to her.
She has a great passion for elephants, especially the large African type. Just
about every ledge or table in her house is covered with pottery or glass elephants.
Her father went on many safaris, and as a small girl my Great Aunt had ridden
many elephants in India. She had always wanted to go on a safari but was never
allowed to do so.
I can not imagine that she has ever been to a dentist. She has only a few
teeth left but luckily two of these are the front teeth so that she can whistle.
When she talks she whistles her 'fS's". She wears long dresses with rows of
necklaces and bright-coloured shawls. She likes to snack on sweet things which
she eats with a spoon, a knife and several toothpicks.
At her house everybody is given a warm welcome. She is as good as the
Royal Cook, and she prepares extravagant meals with scrumptious desserts. Even
if you only visit for half an hour she will make sure that you get well fed.
I think that my Great Aunt Ethel is one of the sweetest persons in the world.
I hope that you, too, can visit my eccentric aunt soon.

MY MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT
We had left our hotel in Oxford and were driving to London to join a
sightseeing cruise ship, which sailed on the Thames from Westminster to Green-
wich. We parked our car at Marble Arch and took the underground to West-
minster and went aboard the ship.
When we cast off, into a terrific wind, we headed in the direction of Green-
wich. I photographed St. Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London, the Shell
building, the Queen Elizabeth Centre, various ships, a hydrofoil and other points
About two hours later the dock at Greenwich came into view, and with it
the tall graceful masts and rigging of the clipper Cutty Sark. We eventually
found The Spanish Galleon, a restaurant which our captain had recommended.
We were shown to our table and I ordered a huge plate of spaghetti.
"You know how to eat it?" asked the waiter in a Spanish accent.
"Yes, I think so."
A family we had met on the cruise was seated at a table near us by a most
unhappy chance. The boy of the family glanced over at our table just in time to
see a huge bundle of spaghetti fall from my fork as it approached my wide
opened mouth. He tapped his sister's shoulder and she stared over at me while
I attempted to regain the lost spaghetti.
"Slop," my brother said.
"Lauchlan," said my mother very slowly and deliberately.
A giggle came from that other table.
Another giggle was heard.
I got the spaghetti onto my fork and then it promptly slid off into my water
glass with a sort of slurping noise.
"Oh, waiter, could we have some more water here?" my brother asked.
I turned red as a beetroot but recovered enough to say, "I'll talk to you
This was too much. With a defiant glare and many inglorious slops and spills,
I forged ahead through the jungle of spaghetti and finished my meal before
everyone else. I glanced scornfully at the other table.
However, from that day forward, I have never, and will never eat spaghetti
in a restaurant. Spaghetti had brought about my most embarrassing moment.

ONE FROM NINE IS EIGHT
Well, there's Johnny! I wonder what he's up to now . . . Oh, I see, he's
going outside. I hope he lets me come . . . uh huh, the door's open, so I guess
I can. Well, then, let's go, Johnny!
My, it's muddy out here. Remind me to clean my paws when I come back.
Hey, there's Terry, the paper boy! So that's why Johnny came out. I wonder
what's in the cat's pages today? Nothing much, I guess--What's that streak of
brown I just caught a glimpse of galloping down the street? If it's what I think
it is, I'm going to try to go get it. Hmm . . . I've got to time the break correctly
. . . wait until Johnny's not looking . . . perfect! Well, here goes!
That mouse's awfully fast, it's getting further ahead of me every second.
Probably the quagmire in the street is making me slide. Ha! I've cornered him
into seeking refuge in an old alley! Well, I can fix that. Slowly, now, easy does it.
. . . bah, he found an opening in the wall. If I stick a paw in maybe I'll get him -
oh, no, that hole comes out on the next alley. If at first you don't succeed, try,
try again, I suppose. Now to pull myself out and get- ahem -- NOW TO PULL
MYSELF OUT - oh, it's no use, my paw's stuck! Now the mouse doesn't matter
so much as my paw! Ow! Boy, that smarts! I wonder how I got it in in the first
place? . . . CSniff, sniffj Hold it, I smell trouble -- oh, oh, it's Ruff! Come on out,
paw, I've got to get moving! Oh, great, it only hurts more. Now I've got to fight
that stupid mongrel with a one paw disadvantage. O.K., first a kick with my left
hind paw . . . MEOWRR! HISS! fAssorted other high-pitched feline noises.J
Well, a claw in the eye ought to work . . . hold it, what's this? Where's he gone?
Hmph! He's chickened out! No, he hasn't . . . somebody's holding him and
feeding him some veal bones. That's unfair! As if I'd want veal bones anyhow,
but . . . That's probably his master. Notice how he doesn't give me anything.
I reckon I must have been here in this dark alley about a day now . . . my
stomach's growling, my furls matted from the rain, and my paw's still lodged
firmly in that hole. And Csnifflj no-one's spotted me yet. Hey, listen! It's footsteps!
And coming this way! It's not another dog-it's a man! It says on his jacket
HU-MANE SO-CI-ET-Y, whatever they are-probably one of those groups or
clubs that humans seem to like to have. Why, he's got a towel -oh, that feels
good! Thank goodness this guy came alongg I was beginning to catch pneumonia!
My, he's got some cold milk, too! T hat's better than a brown mouse any day! And
he's getting my paw out of the hole - oo, that stings- my goodness, he's pried
it out already! I lost a claw, I guess, but that's not much. Now he's bandaging it
so I can walk on it. Isn't that considerate of him! There are two other men at the
end of the alley with a box. I suppose that's to catch me if I get mad at this guy
here . . . but why should I? These people are really helpful! I wonder if they help
other animals in distress too? I shudder to think of having had to stay here
My, Johnny looks awfully relieved- so am I! I wish I could think of some
way to thank them, but I don't know how I can - hmm . . . maybe the next time
I meet him I can present him with one of my most treasured possessions . . .

THE OLD MAN
The old man sat on a park bench, watching the pigeons peck at the crumbs
he had sprinkled on the sidewalk. He looked tired, as if he had been tired for a
long time. Everything about him looked tired-the faded floppy hat, the worn
overcoat with the missing button, the baggy-kneed pants, the scuffed shoes worn
down at the heels- everything but his eyes.
The dark eyes were trapped in a net of wrinkles, with two deep lines following
the long fine nose and ending in a clipped white mustache. There was a hint of
friendliness in the upturned corners of his mouth as he murmured back at the
greedy birds around his feet.
The crumbs all gone, the birds left in a flurry of beating wings. He watched
them go and his eyes belied his smiling mouth. Deep in those eyes were many
things. Things in the past, things thought to have been forgotten, defiance, anger,
regret - they were all there.
There was the sadness he felt for lost things. What things? His youth, his
vigor, his energy, his skill, his ambitions - all had waned and some had died over
the years. There was that melancholy understanding that some things don't last
forever. And there was his hatred of time, that hatred which comes from realizing
that one is slowly being sapped of strength and vitality by an implacable foe.
There were things remembered-good things like dancing and climbing
a mountain and sailing a boat and running a mile and playing football. There
were things not quite remembered, scraps and tatters of events and people that
didn't seem to fit anywher-e, like a jumbled jigsaw puzzle.
And the eyes searched for things not remembered, things which other people
remembered, but the cloud of time hid from him.
The old man sat on the park bench, looking at the cemetery, and fighting

MY GOOD DEED FOR THE DAY
I was walking to school
One fine summer's day,
When I heard a cry,
To my dismay.
It was a plea for help,
But I didn't know where,
So shrugging it off,
I whistled without care.
Then I heard it again,
That pitiful cry,
And it seemed as though
It was very close by.
And there in a brook,
Sat a little child,
Crying her eyes out,
As if she were wild.
So I pulled her out,
And sent her on her way,
And knew I had done
My good deed for the day.

Where was he? He had just regained consciousness. He looked around, but
everything was blurred. Gradually his vision cleared and he realized that he was
in a room. He looked for a chair or a bed. There were none. There was nothing
in the room. The room was totally unfurnished.
He was lying on the floor and found that he was deathly cold. He sat up.
He looked for a door or a window. There were none. lt was then that he saw
the walls were made of stainless steel which shone with a dull gleam.
Slowly the emotions, long pent up in his mind, came to the surface. He let
loose a deafening scream. Echoes rebounded from the walls. They died down
and he heard a dull hum which gradually became higher and higher. He wanted
to scream again but knew that it would only make matters worse. He needed
something to plug his ears. He tried to tear his jump suit, but it stuck to his skin
He tried to convince himself that he was dreaming, but this was impossible.
It was all tragically real. Finally, hours later, exhausted, he slept.
When he woke nothing had changed except that a bowl of fruit was on the
floor across the room. Crazed with hunger he ran to the bowl. As he reached out
for the fruit, it disappeared.
Then he realized that the floor on this side of the room was unbearably hot.
Holding back a cry of pain he struggled back to his corner.
On the third day long spikes appeared through the floor on his side of the
room. He got to his feet and dodged toward the other side. He tripped and was
impaled on a spike.
In Paradise, he joined the other sufferers from The Room.
MARK FERGUSON - 7
Once upon a time there lived a colony of ants. They lived just by the brim
of a bath tub. This tub was very rarely used in the winter because it was in a
cottage and this cottage was in no way winterized.
One of the most famed ants in the colony was Herbie Ant. He was known
for his bravery and mountain climbing skill. Herb knew that inside the tub was
a vast valley, but no one knew what was on the other side of the valley. There
were fables of great riches-mountains of gold and diamonds.
If you are wondering why no ant went around this tub, it was because
there was a huge crack not far from where they lived and it was impossible to
cross this crack. The only way across the valley was to slide down the bath tub
and climb the other side. Everyone was counting on good ol' Herb to do it.
One day all the ants lined the edge of the tub to see Herbie off. There was
a sudden hush as Herbie prepared for the slide-down. The Mayor of Antville
placed the pack of tools on Herb's back.
Herbie slid down sitting on his custom-made pants which had a slab of
metal to protect his legs. He reached bottom safely, crossed the valley and started
up the other side. There was a problem -in fact two problems.
Number 1. Water was starting to drip from the tap because it was spring
now, and the water was getting closer and closer to Herbie.
Number 2. The side of the tub was too slippery for Herbie to climb.
All of a sudden a great gush of water came out of the tap, and with it went
No one knows what happened to Herbie Ant, but if you see an ant climbing
out of the drain in your tub, ask its name. It might be Herbie Ant.

THE GHOST OF ASHBURY
I had been a boarder at Ashbury for only a few weeks when these events
took place. I was a lonely child and was at the school because my parents had
gone to Africa. I made some friends who were also new at the school.
We had been told by the older boys about a young matron who walked
around the school every Friday the Thirteenth, the day of her death. We were told
that she had become angry at the boys for nagging her and, in a fierce way, she
had turned and struck one of the boys, knocking him to the ground. She had
been told to leave the school on the following morning by the headmaster. That
night, after seeing -the boys to sleep, she climbed into the attic and hanged herself.
This had happened in 1895, almost ten years ago.
Ever since, on every Friday the Thirteenth, she would walk around the school
and check all the boys' rooms. I was not going to believe this story until I
actually saw it happening. In two weeks Friday Gctober the Thirteenth, 1904,
would arrive. I cannot say I was hoping for the night to come, but I was certainly
Robin, Andrew and I would prove that there was no ghost by walking and
hunting all over the school, including the attic.
Finally the day arrived and during the day we prepared for our night's
adventure. We carried water and torches in our pack-sack. After prep we went
up to our dorms and waited patiently for midnight. I passed the time by counting
all the stars I could see, trying not to close my eyes.
The chapel clock struck twelve. I slipped out of my room and met the
others down stairs. We started our journey around the school. We almost ran
into some masters who were talking outside the common room. It was a pretty
After going all around the school and seeing nothing unusual, we headed
for the attic. I got the ladder and we climbed up. We headed for the far end of
the room in the dark, stepping carefully over the trunks. We turned a corner,
and suddenly a faint glow appeared in front of us.
"Andrew, Robin, come here quick! Look down there,', I said in a low
The glow turned into a vague object which moved slowly toward us. Soon
we could make out the figure to be that of a girl approaching us with light
footsteps. She was wearing a white nightgown which blew behind her as she
began to move more rapidly. Robin screamed and ran, tripping over every trunk,
as he dashed for the trap door. Andrew had fallen to the floor and gazed up at
her in terror, while I stood frozen, looking into her face. She placed her hand
on my forehead and ran it down my face. I felt a chill from head to toe and
shivered. Then she disappeared into the darkness as I fell to the ground. Much
later the masters arrived at the scene.
When I woke the next morning I was still shaky, but had recovered
somewhat from the terrors of the night before.
The masters said nothing, and none of the boys except the three of us knows
that the Ghost of Ashbury really exists.

A CHRISTMAS SURPRISE
It was the 24th of December, Christmas Eve. The time was about 11:30 p.m.
and I was really tired, but the excitement of the next day kept me awake. I lay in
bed just waiting for time to pass and listening to the vicious, cold howling of the
wind as it tore madly around the house.
My eyes slowly closed and I drifted away as quietly as a snow flake into the
realm of sleep.
It seemed only moments later when I was dashing down the stairs to the
living room where the Christmas gifts were. My sister and my parents came
down and the ceremony of the gift opening began. To my dismay I had only two!
The pile in front of my sister seemed enormous. The first present I opened was
a ring. This was the least wanted item on my list! Forcing a smile I put the ring
on and almost immediately a tingling sensation vibrated through my body. And
then I began to shrink. I shrunk until I was four inches high! It was certainly
a real surprise to find a magic ring as one of my Christmas presents.
I started to make my way across country through the shag rug. lt was like
plowing through a field of knee-high grass. My parents were running around
horrified, trying to phone doctors, police and the fire department.
My younger sister just sat there and said, "Oh! Look at Tim! Isn't he funny!"
Funny? I thought it was a serious matter to shrink from five feet four inches
to four inches. A loss of five feet is abnormal in any child!
Actually I was having quite a bit of fun until our cat came prowling around
the sofa. He spied me instantly. He crunched low and started to stalk his victim
-me! With his tail flicking he crept slowly toward me flexing his claws. A
murderous gleam was shining in his eyes.
All my little sister could say was, "Oh, Tim! The cat's going to play catch
I started running as fast as I could, but I kept on tripping on loose threads
in the rug. I made a magnificent leap for the chair, but too late! The cat's claws
caught my sweater and sent me spinning. I was on my back and I saw a razor-
sharp claw shooting toward me when two things happened. First I cried out for
help, and secondly, a firm hand caught me by the arm and shook me.
"Come on, Tim. Wake up. Let's have some breakfast and then we'1l open

FIRST SOCCER TEAM
The team got off to a disappointing start with a loss to Sedbergh in our
first game, but after this we went on to have a good season with only one more
defeat by Upper Canada College. Against Lakefield we tied one game and won
the other. This was on a weekend trip which was enjoyed by all. On the trip we
also played the game against U.C.C. We got our revenge against Sedbergh by
winning our return game with them 2-1.
Game 1 at Ashbury, September 27.
The Second Team opened its season by outscoring Sedbergh 7-1. It was an
exciting game for all of us, especially Rhodes who scored three of the goals. The
other four were by: Schoeler who scored two, Simon Gittens and Beedell.
Game 2 at Sedbergh, October 9.
In the second game, things were rough, but with a ground shot, Dunlop
slipped one past the goalie, to win the game 1-O.
Game 3 at Ashbury, October 15.
In this tightly fought contest we lost to Lakefield by a very slim margin, 3-2.
Schoeler and T. Wilson counted for Ashbury in a losing cause.
Game 4 at L.C.C., October 20.
This was a rather disastrous game played under rather unpleasant conditions.
We were blanked 3-0.
Game 5 at Ashbury, October 24.
Bravo, our second string goalie, played center and scored his first goal of the
season. Dunlop and Beedell also scored to win the game for us 3-1.
Game 6 at Lakefield, November 3.
We were not at our best on this weekend. T. Wilson, Smith, Schoeler and
Dunlop were the outstanding players. Lakefield beat us 4-3. Dunlop scored his
3rd and 4th goals of the season, and Beedell his 3rd.
Game 7 at U.C.C., November 4.
Our night's stay in Oshawa must have slowed us down somewhat, as we were
hammered 9-2. Dunlop and Schoeler were the Ashbury scorers.
Although the season's record was 3 wins and 4 losses Ctotal goals for, 18,
against, 219 we enjoyed the trips and the excitement of the play. I wish to thank
Mr. Parks for his encouragement and good coaching.

Despite a sadly curtailed season and occasionally inclement conditions, team
morale seemed to be always at a high, and everyone tried as hard as he could at
all times. The result of this was the rather respectable record of two wins, one
loss. Of course, thanks are in order for Mr. Humphreys for being the best coach
a team could have. That helped too, as you can see.

THE FOURTH SOCCER TEAM
The Fourth Team had a fine year, winning two and losing one. The scores
against Lakefield were 5-0 and 1-1. After the long, tiring trip to Toronto we
played U.C.C. and lost 4-l. This was a fine, fast game and well played, with
Borthwick getting the lone goal for us. We had superb goal tending, and fine
coaching from Mr. Tottenham.
The three stars on the team were Borthwick Cleading scorer along with
Fishj, Habets, with his great play making, and Mensforth, with his fine goal
On behalf of the whole team I would like to give special thanks to Mr.

THE WINNIPEG TRIP
The Winnipeg Hockey Trip was a great success, mainly because we won.
We were the last group to arrive in Winnipeg getting there late in the night.
We were tired when we played Appleby the next morning in the very first game
of the tournament. St. John's, the home team played St. George's in the second
game. We won our game and then returned to the school to rest up for the two
games we had to play the next day. The results of these were a win and a loss, but
this kept us in the running and we were in the finals against St. John's. That night
the whole team went on a Tally Ho Sleigh Ride.
The big moment finally arrived. Mr. Parks, the coach, said, "You have
nothing to save it for. So all out in this one!"
We won. This was the first time that Ashbury had entered the tournament.
We were happy to accept our prizes. The people on the team gave it all out for
THE JUNIOR TEAM VS. AMHERST
When I was picked to play in the Ashbury-Amherst hockey meet I was thrill-
ed. The meet lasted for two days. First came rigourous practice. We learned to
check, stick-handle, and how to carry the puck. Everyone learned something he
The first game went quickly and the suspense was unbearable. We lost 1-0.
The next game saw us fare little better. We lost that game 2-1. I liked that
game a bit more.
Although we lost we had a very enjoyable experience. Next year I think we'll

THE FIRST BASEBALL TEAM
We had quite a good baseball team. We played against L.C.C. twice, and
beat them 13-6, and lost the other game. We also played Henry Munro, and
slaughtered them 27 to 12. The game ball was made out of rubber and actually
bounced right over a five-foot fence. During the year Cuhaci was an outstanding
batter with a lot of home runs. We had strong fielding with Tim Farquhar and
Harry Blackwood. We had great teamwork and had a very successful season.
M. BRAVO, Manager
This year we had a lot of fun, and many exciting moments. The team was
a good one, and individual stars were Borthwick and Habets II.
We got into the Ottawa Grade 5 8c 6 Public School Tournament and reached
the finals, but lost.
We played six games in all, winning three and losing three.
We give many thanks to Mr. Tottenham, who was a good coach and helped
to make the season so much fun.

I'm an alert young fellow from Denmark.
Who found school this year was a lark.
I wish I could stay,
But there's just no way,
For to Denmark I have to embark.
I am a new boy in SA,
Who's hopefully headed to 9A.
My friends are the whole class,
And we sat on the grass,
For a cheerful form picture one day.
l'm really quite smart they all say,
So they gave me a chance in SA.
But as for my work,
I'm really a jerk,
Since I spend all my class time at play.
There is a small boy in our class,
Who constantly acts like an ass.
He once used to board,
But found no accord,
When his efforts were less than a pass.
Ross Brown stands first in my class,
Near 100'Z1, while alas,
With my feeble brain,
I can barely attain
A mark or two better than pass.
At the top of the class, it is I,
But some people think I'm NOT wise!
They say, with my curls,
I should attract Elmwood girls!
As for me, I'd prefer not to try.
I'm a swinging cool cat from Barbados,
Who likes work like a bag of potatoes.
But as for the school,
It's lacking one jewel.
Some chicks who don't look like potatoes.
There once was a boy in this school,
Who usually played it quite cool,
But once in a while
He'd be seen with a smile,
As his form master he tried to fool.
Having gained a loud talker named Max
8A tried to coat him with wax.
Their aim, they believe,
They did then achieve,
Since the talker now sticks to the facts.
I'm a very strong laddie named Kay,
The genius, I believe, of SA.
As you see, I'm quite modest,
And sure not the crossest
Of all of the guys in SA.

In art he excelled,
While Latin and math he repelled,
But he'll be a writer some day. CHe thinksll
I'm sure I'm a genius in May,
Though this isn't what all people say.
But I'll not sing this tune,
When exams come in June,
And cause me utter dismay.
I'm a shrimpy young toad in 8A,
Who draws war equipment all day.
Though they insist I'm a dunce,
They've been wrong more than once,
After all, I'm really okay.
Ian Morton. There was a young boy nicknamed Mort.
The name came from Polk, that old sport.
He came from the dead,
And stayed here instead,
That funny young lad nicknamed Mort.
There once was a young man named Norm,
Who said Ashbury needed reform.
This school is a hell!
With a peculiar smell!
At Ridgemont I may be reborn.
I like Ashbury a lot. My favourite teachers are Messrs.
Sherwood and Beedell. My best friend is Tony Graham. I
don't like writing limericks, as you can see.
There was a young boy named Shields,
Who loved to run through the fields.
He tripped on a stump,
And got quite a bump,
And now he must wait till it heals.
Pm a bright little fella named Dave,
Who constantly tries to behave.
Though I came down with the 'flu,
And broke my leg, too,
l'm still a long way from my grave.
Palmer Wright. There once was a tall lad named Wright.
Who felt himself awfully bright.
His marks aren't for show,
Since they're really quite low,
'Cause he plays from the morning till night.
Charles Zwirewich. There's a very odd boy in 8A,
Who is never, never away.
He seldom tells lies,
Has NO hair in his eyes,
His name, though, I really can't say.
Judson Q. Barton, Sr. There's a mystery boy in 8A,
Who chases adventure each day.
Jud Barton's the name,
And he's headed for fame.
What a pity he's often away.
The Best Form Master There was a dashing young master named Sherwood,
in the School. When asked to play golf would say "Sure would!"
He took up his clubs,
And then toured the pubs.
All in a day for that Sherwood!

has a lot of friends. He does fair work in school. He is really a nice guy in every way.
Bob Murray. Murray has had a fairly good year. He is very quiet, but is a very
nice guy. He has a good sense of humour and sometimes he makes us laugh. His worst
subject is history.
David O'Dell. David is one of the friendly types who likes to mix with older
guys and girls. He is a great procrastinator and simply "digs" his school work. His
best subject is science and his favourite teacher is Mr. Cann. This has been his first
year and we are all looking forward to his return next year.
Ron Schwarzmann. This is Ronny's first year at Ashbury and he's liked it very
much. He's a boarder and still finds his way to Elmwood. In his spare time he likes
to be a dare devil commando, but everybody likes him because he's such a nice guy
and he can make his toes dance.
David Walls. Wally has a bit of a problem with spelling. He has a lot of fun at
Elmwood. He is big Cmost of it musclej. His writing is fair, and the big giveaway, he is
a fair monitor. His best friends are Zimm and Murray.

stamp collecting. Tim is very good in gymnastics. In class he is very quiet but very
smart. His favourite subjects are science and literature.
Stephen Watson. Cby himselfj My best friends are Jonkel, Farquhar, Schwarz-
mann and Blackwood. My favourite teachers are Mr. Beedell, Mr. Sherwood and Mr.
Humphreys. My favourite subjects are math, French and literature. I will probably
leave Ashbury after Grade 9.
John Zimmermami. Zimmers is a good party organizer. Two weeks before the
end of school he had a party for a boy named Jonkel. His worst subject is math. Lots
of guys don't like math. This is his second year at Ashbury and I think he is returning
next year. I hope he does at least.

David Adjeleian. There once was a fellow named Dave,
Who considered himself very brave.
But when it came to the tests,
He did not do his best,
And did not leave the rest in the shade.
Ross Baxter. This is my second year at Ashbury and I enjoyed it. I didn't get an
M.L.T.S. this year, but I hope I will next year. I like the sports here, and I like the
David Beedell. This is my third year at Ashbury. I enjoyed it thoroughly, although
I didn't do as well as last year in academics and sports. I got an M.L.T.S. and hope to
come back next year.
Michael Bravo. This is my first year at Ashbury. I like the school because of the
staff and the sports programme. We have about IW hours of sports a day. My favour-
ite subjects are English and Latin.
Hayg Cuhaci. This was my third year at Ashbury and I enjoyed it very much.
My biggest thrill was when we went to a hockey tournament in Winnipeg and won. I
was also pleased to win the most points in the track meet. I had a good sports year but
a poor academic year. I have many good friends at Ashbury and I like the teachers.
Floris Faber. This year has been very good, but it was a bit harder than last
year. My best friend is Nanno Habets. and my favourite teachers are Mr. Polk and
Julian Feldman. I have enjoyed this year Cmy thirdl very much. I was on the
second soccer team, the running team, and got three ribbons in the track meet. I will
be coming back next year.
Mark Ferguson. This was my first year at Ashbury and it was quite successful.
I received an M.L.T.S. Ashbury is a good school, but it is a really better school
because of the people. The teachers are the best I have ever known. The sports program
offers good variety. Competition, both academically and athletically is fierce producing
a high standard of ability.
Nicholas Fonay. Mr. Polk calls him "telephone," Nick can speak a lot of
languages including Hungarian. He likes Martin and Beedell and others. He is smart
in class and always has a smile on his face.
Nanno Habets. This year was so far the best I have had, but I can't wait for
the summer vacation. Although I did not get an M.L.T.S., I think I learned something.
John lngold. This is my second year at Ashbury. I am coming back here next
year. I have a lot of friends. I like Ashbury's sports program and its tests. We have
exams twice a year, at Christmas and in June.
Paul Kadziora. This was my best year at Ashbury even though I didn't make
any teams, but I did get an M.L.T.S. This year the school was rebuilt and now the
classes can stay in their own rooms. I have many friends here and I am glad that I
am returning next year.
Jim Lahey. Hi! This is my first year at Ashbury. I am in 7A and I enjoyed my
year. I have made quite a few friends, Martin and Rhodes just to name a couple.
I didn't get an M.L.T.S. or any recs. I would recommend Ashbury to any boy academ-
ically and physically. My favourite teachers are Mr. Babbitt, Mr. Beedell, Mr. Polk
fpersonally I think most everyone likes Mr. Polkl, and others.
Gordon Maclaren. This is my third year at Ashbury and in many ways my best.
I received an M.L.T.S. I like the academic programme which makes you feel that you
must study more because of the atmosphere that the teachers build up. I also like
the sports programme in which you are instructed in the basic rules, you are given
tips, and you get experience in almost every popular North American sport. I hope
I come back next year.
Peter Martin. This was my third year at Ashbury and I enjoyed it very much.
Most of the teachers here are nice. I have lots of friends, and will be returning next
Thomm Mensforth. This is my second year at Ashbury. I made the Winnipeg
team and the First Hockey Team. I had a pretty good year. My friends are Bax, Cooch,
T-Man, Ingold, Rigby, Rhodes, Beedell and Lahey. My favourite teacher is Mr. Babbitt.
I will be back next year.
Lauchlan Munro. This was my first year here and I enjoyed it very much. I got
an M.L.T.S. and I like the sports program a lot. My favourite sports are soccer and
hockey. I hope that next year will be as good as this one has been.
James Puttick. This is my second year at Ashbury and I have really enjoyed it.
I especially enjoyed the sports that we have, particularly soccer. During the summer
a new section was built on the school which made Ashbury a lot nicer than before.
Two new common rooms were built-one of them was for the seniors and one for
Chris Rhodes. I liked the year a lot, even better than last year. I made every
first team except the soccer team. I went to Winnipeg with the hockey team and
enjoyed it very much. I have lots of friends and like most of the teachers. I hope to
get an M.L.T.S. next year, but I probably won't. I hope I like next year even better
than this year!
Vincent Rigby. Going to Ashbury has been a great pleasure for me. All the
teachers are exceedingly nice and help me with all my problems. I received an M.L.T.S.
this year for the first time. I like all my class and enjoy the games program. I hope
next year will be just as enjoyable.
Tim Wilson. This was my third year at Ashbury but not my best. I hope to come
back next year and do better in sports as well as in school.

Bob Biewald. Bob is a very likeable guy. One of his worst points is that he
is constantly punching me. One of his better points is that . . . um, well . . . Bobby
is a specialist at arguing with a teacher. Mind you, he doesn't get anywhere.
Bach Bui. Boo Boo is a very quiet and very high tempered guy. He enjoys
sports, especially baseball, but can never get the ball past the pitcher. He does not
enjoy doing school work and likes to sleep in class. Bach is a boa.rder and is always
looking for excitement with all the guys.
Mike Davies. This is his first year at Ashbury. He is doing very well in his
schooling and very well in sports. He is a humorous guy, but he also knows the right
time to be serious and the right time to joke around.
Jamie Frmer. He had a good first year at Ashbury. He is quiet in class and
always likes to help people. He is a good guy.
Simon Gale. This is my first year at Ashbury and I like it very much. The
school has an excellent sports program, and the coaches help those who are not so
good at sports to become better. Overall I like the school and hope to come back
Peter Griffiths. This is my first year at Ashbury and I have enjoyed it very much.
My friends call me "goofus". I like sports very much and enjoy the classes. I hope
to be back next year.
John King. Queen is a good guy. He has a good sense of humour. This is Queen's
first year here. He has a good average. He likes to play ping-pong, especially when
he wins. He likes the sports and is coming back next year.
Pierre La Traverse. Pierre is a great guy. This year he attempted two things.
First, to be the top of the class, and Second, to lose 16 pounds. He accomplished both.
He is good at all sports and is liked by his classmates. He also received an M.L.T.S.
He hopes to come back next year.
David McClenahan. David Calias McClenabugJ is a kind-hearted fellow. This
year wasn't too bad for him because although he missed a rec. by one mark, he still
received some golds on the Colour Board. David is also known for his extraordinary
voice. Through the course of the year he has won many merits in the field of music.
David also enjoys the company of his teachers and fellow students and likes to get
Campbell Morrison. Campbell, better known as Morry, is a great guy who got
a rec in math and grammar. He's not coming back next year, which is too bad, but
he had a great one year at Ashbury.
Ian Nicol. This is his first year at Ashbury. His friends are most of 7K. His
favourite subject is literature and his favourite teacher is Mr. Babbitt. He is a pretty
friendly person. Although he keeps to himself, he sune knows how to yell!
Agustin Olachea. His nickname is Olachick. He came from Mexico, but is doing
very well in class here. He made the first soccer team. He has a girl friend in Mexico
and he thinks that the girls in Canada are all dogs, but I found out that he is in love
with my sister. The only thing that I don't like about him is that he puts too much
Andre Poirier. This is my first year at Ashbury and I feel that it was an unsuc-
cessful year. My average was 54 and my best friend is Floris Faber. My favourite
teachers are Mr. Babbitt, Mr. Cann and Mr. Humphreys.
George Smith. This is my first year at Ashbury. I enjoyed the year very much,
although I missed an M.L.T.S. I hope to get one next year when I return. I made the
first team in softball and the second team in soccer.
Douglas Squires. Doug's nickname in our class is square. He is doing very well
in school and also in sports. He is the biggest yo-yo addict now that the yo-yo season
is here, but sometimes he is a nuisance. Generally he is a nice guy.
Mike Sutterlin. Sutterleen is a tough guy. This is his first year at Ashbury and he
would hope that it is his last one. He made the three first teams, and everybody thinks
that he is good, but I don't! He likes wine, cigars and girls, and he hates studying.
I don't really mean this because he is a good friend of me, Agustin Olachea.
David Tamblyn. David is the worst friend I've ever had. He accomplished two
things. One, being a "strike out king" Cin baseballj, the second thing was getting through
the school year. He runs like a "Bugs Bunny". His feet are hairy canary and you
could make a fur coat out of them. David is also a sail freak. His good friend Bach
Bui has written this.
Philip Van Leeuwen. I am writing a little story about a boy named Philip. He
is the kind that will peel an orange in front of a teacher and then spray the juice all
over people. He doesn't work very hard but he seems to have a good time at school.
Brian Whitney. Brian is a friendly guy. He doesn't get very high marks, but he
tries a bit, I guess. He had a happy year and we hope he'll be back again next year.
Roy Bland. This is my second year at Ashbury and I am not coming back because
I am moving to Homesville. In my two years I have learned a lot and made a lot of
friends. My favourite sport is hockey and my favourite subject is math.
Alexander Bystram. I have been going to Ashbury for' three years. For two of
those years I was a boarder because my home was in Montreal. I have made many
friends since I came to this school. I hope to try out another school next year.
John Clark. It was too bad there was no trip this year, but since the Third Soccer
Team went to U.C.C., that took its place. All in all I have had a good year.
Laird Dunlop. This year was good. I made almost all the teams and I liked all
of them. I was on the Winnipeg Team and I played well tfor mel. On my line I played
with Chris Rhodes and Tom Mensforth. The teams are harder to make now because
of the number of people in the school. My average this year was the best in three
Ken Ellacott. I really enjoyed this year at Ashbury, and I hope I will be allowed
to return next year. The art class was very good. My favourite hobby is making and
building models. All of the staff are very enjoyable.
David Farquhar. This year was a good one. In December we went to Winnipeg
and we won a hockey tournament there. My brother scored thirteen goals 113, bad
luck, ha! hall. Toward the end of the year we had a dance. This was my first one
because you have to be in Grade 7 or 8 to attend the dances. The dance wasn't a flop
as I thought it would be. At first no one was dancing, but soon we were rocking around.

Barry Johnston. This is my second year at Ashbury and it might be my last.
There were not too many events this year, but Ashbury Day made up for missing
Grub Day. We went to play a hockey tournament in Winnipeg and we won the
championship. I have made many friends at Ashbury and I hope to come back next
Charles Lay. I had a good year. I made two hockey teams and I didn't get any
Saturday detentions. I think our class improved toward the end of the year. The food
has improved this year. This year I had fun and made a lot of friends. Over all, I
think I had a good year.

Jeff Mitchell, Esq. This is my third year here at Ashbury, and I think it was the
best. I was made the Captain of the Third Soccer Team by Mr. Humphreys. What
I looked forward to the most was the soccer trip to Lakefield and U.C.C. We enjoyed
Uncle Ben for library. I got 49 out of 50 in spelling this year. My favourite sports
are baseball, in which I get some home runs, and soccer in which I play defence.
Joe Pilaar. I came to Ashbury from India. Since I have been here I think it
is a good school. The thing I like about Ashbury is that it has a high academic
standard, but I don't like the uniform that we have.
Bob Schoeler. I had a very good year. I made almost all of the teams. I was
selected as one of the group to go to Winnipeg and was on a line with Iain Wilson

French. The food was excellent. I have some very good pals and hope to see them
all when I return next year.
Mark Viets. This is my third year at Ashbury. I like it. I am coming back next

I didnlt like was the stealing, and some classes getting too big. My average has gone
up. I would like to do better in sports than I am doing now.
Iain Wilson. This is my third year at Ashbury. I've liked it. It was fun. I went
to Winnipeg to play hockey and we won the championship. I made the Amherst
Hockey Team, but we lost 1-0 and 2-1. I also made the second soccer team. The
sports here are great. There was no school trip which disappointed me. I like most
of the teachers. At the end of the year we had a dance which was a lot of fun. I was
the best poetry reader in our class. My favourite sports are hockey and soccer. I made

standing than at public school. I'm looking forward to the summer holidays.

the best I ever came to.

thing about this school is the activities. I went to Winnipeg and we won the tournament.

next year. My ambition is to be a surgeon.

Patrick Lahey. Hello! This is my first year at Ashbury and I would recommend
it to any person. I made the second soccer team, the second hockey team and the
second baseball team. I didn't get an M.L.T.S. or any recommendations but it was
still fun. tThe exams were yeachll
Craig Leth-Steensen. Ashbury is fun especially when you have an M.L.T.S. and
don't have to write any final exams. The food is good. I think the games program is
fun because it's very different than it was in my other school.
.ln"'0' 5 .Agar-4-
Grant Mclntosh. I am 12. The reason I like Ashbury is that the sports program
is nice. In it we play soccer, hockey and baseball. Another reason is that the teachers
help you with their subjects after school on some nights. The lunches are very good.

of the sports program, especially in hockey. I hope to return next year and to get an

enjoy Ashbury as much as I do.

mendation in math, but the part I like best at Ashbury is the barbecue which is two
days from now. My favourite sport is softball.

do a lot of work but the sports program makes up for that. I made the second soccer
team, the Amherst team and the second baseball team. I'm coming back next year.

schools in Ottawa. I like to collect A.F.X. racing car sets, and I have other hobbies
too. Ashbury has lots of sports to offer like soccer, hockey, baseball and track and field.
Marty Wayand. This is my first year at Ashbury. Except for the essays we have
to write, most things are good. I like baseball because I go on the pick-up team which

bus ride is a waste of time.

bore you, and a sports program which deals with almost every sport.
